Much Improved DRS To Be Tested In India v. England Series

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 20:18:22 +0100

After almost all the concerns that India had expressed about the DRS system in the past were satisfactorily addressed by the ICC, the BCCI is now ready to give the NEW and IMPROVED DRS system a try.  India's stand against DRS was principled and not arbitrary as some in the Western media have alleged.  It was based on the now famous Dhoni quote about "adultration of human decision making and technology".     

Historic Holkar Stadium Makes Test Debut

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 20:15:49 +0100

Holkar Stadium in Indore, the home of the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association, became the 22 Test venue in India... But unlike many 1-Test venues  this new venue should become a permanent fixture on the Test circuit.  It has a rich history as well as excellent facilities located right in the middle of the City, making it an ideal Test cricket venue.

India's All-Time Dream Team

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 20:53:21 +0100

The first Test against New Zealand is India's 500th Test match... and the BCCI is marking this ocassion by allowing fans to pick their all time dream team on Facebook.  See article below for details.  Time to for some arm-chair punditry and nostaglia all mixed together. 

Gambhir Leads Team to Duleep Trophy Title

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 15:46:48 +0100

The new format Duleep Final comprised of mixed teams of roughly equal strength instead of Zonal outfits which in the past were often mismatched.  The cricket was more competitive, but the competition felt flat as the Zonal rivalries of the past were relegated to the dustbin.

Brilliant India A Thump Australia A to Win Quadrangular

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 15:39:29 +0100

After a very poor start, where they were hustled out for 50 odd runs in a 50 over game... India A stormed back into the tournament to win the final in a convincing manner.  The shock replacement of Naman Ojha by Manish Pandey as Captain may have contributed to the slow start, but Pandey proved to be a good choice and his personal form was stellar as India A won the tournament.  

India in Top 3 in Every Format

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 00:39:32 +0100

In the hand wringing that websites such as cricinfo have encouraged about India's likely drop from No. 1 to No. 2 due to the rain ruined 4th Test in Trindad and Pakistan reaching No. 1 in Test cricket for the first time ever in their history, the pundits have failed to recognize an even more significant achievement by the Indian side.  It now is ranked in the top 3 in every format of the game. No other team currently is so consistently good in all formats. 

Kohli: First Captain To Win Two or More Tests in West Indies

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 02:52:23 +0100

Ajit Wadekar first led India to a series win in the West Indies forty five years ago... since then India has won a couple of series in West Indies, but always by a 1-0 margin.  This is the first time they have won the series and won two or more (they may yet win in the 4th Test in Trinidad) Tests in doing so.  

Ashwin on Verge of World Record

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 19:02:56 +0100

He doesn’t look the part, at least off the field. Even on the field he is not naturally athletic, with a tall but thickset frame and somewhat ponderous movements he seems more like your average weekend athlete rather than a world class Test all-rounder who is on the verge of a stunning World Record. 

England Will Tour India for Full Five Test Series

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 20:54:06 +0100

Not since the 1980s when Sunil Gavaskar and David Gower were captaining their respective sides has England embarked on a full 5 Test tour of India...  Looks like BCCI is one again pushing the nostalgia button.  Good to see Rajkot and Vizag get their first Tests.  Hopefully the cricket fans in those cities will come out in force to support Virat Kohli and his boys.  The ODIs and T20s have thankfully been limited to 3 each... a fair number.  Between top cricket nations this should be the standard format of a tour.

WICB Announces Twelve Member Squad for India Series

Tue, 12 Jul 2016 23:10:46 +0100

Seems a bit surprising that they would name such a small squad for the four Test series, especially at home.  Also no place for Shai Hope the only centurion in the first warm up game. 

India A Team For Australia Tour Announced

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 19:10:36 +0100

BCCI has revived the India A tours and under the guidance of Rahul Dravid, they should do well down under, and come back with a lot of new cricket knowledge under their belts.  Excited to see the names of Shreyas Iyer, Vijay Shankar and Faiz Fazal among the young batsmen who will benefit from the tour.  Also good to see more experienced players like captain Naman Ojha, Dhawal Kulkarni, Varun Aaron, Manish Pandey and Axar Patel also included... 

BCCI Announce Block Buster 2016-17 Season

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 13:07:40 +0100

In a throwback of sorts to the pre-1983 World Cup victory days, when Test cricket was King in India, the BCCI has announced a season packed with Test cricket.  Infact the highest number of Tests since 13 were played in 1970-80.  However other forms of the game are not totally ignored.  Plus the season sees several firsts. The first day-night first class tournament in India with the Duleep Trophy going that route, the first Test match played in India by Bangladesh and first Test matches for centers as diverse as Ranchi, Vizag, Pune, Dharamsala and Rajkot.  It indeed looks a sumptious feast for cricket lovers of all stripes from the Test purists to fans of the shorter formats.

Shardul Thakur Thankful for Timely Test Call-up

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 04:21:36 +0100

Mumbai are known for contributing Test match batsmen to the national team on a a consistent basis, Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane just being the recent inheriters of a proud lineage that goes back to Vijay Merchant and through such stalwarts as Polly Umrigar, Vinoo Mankad, Vijay Manjrekar, Dilip Sardesai, Ajit Wadekar, Sunil Gavaskar, Dilip Vengsarkar, Sanjay Manjrekar, Vinod Kambli, and of course Sachin Tendulkar.  However the fast bowling lineage is much less illustrious...though two of the tiniest fast men have hailed from Mumbai... Ramakant Desai and Ajit Agarkar.  It is good to see another Mumbai speedster now getting a chance to make his mark at the highest level of the game.  Here is an article about Shardul Thakur who has earned this honor by the dint of some very hard work. 

Gujarat Lions are King of the Jungle

Sun, 22 May 2016 19:15:43 +0100

Under the captainship of novice IPL captain Suresh Raina, the Lions in their maiden IPL season have roared to the top of the table to become the kings of the IPL jungle...

Sri Lanka Head To England

Thu, 05 May 2016 18:54:48 +0100

After a LONG break Test cricket returns to the international calendar in a few weeks.   Sri Lanka are the visiting team in the first half of the English season, followed by Pakistan and will play three Test matches in late May and early June.  It will be very challenging for Sri Lanka to repeat their historic series victory which they achieved last time.  Interestingly the ECB has added another Test making it a 3- Test series, instead of the 2 Test series it scheduled last time.  Sri Lanka definitely deserve that respect. 

Gujarat Lions Roar In IPL Week One

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 18:53:30 +0100

One of the new teams formed in the aftermath of the dissolution of the Chennai and Rajasthan Franchises is blazing away to the top in the first week of IPL 2016.

Secret of Bumrah's Success

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 16:50:19 +0100

Mumbai Indian's Bowling coach Paras Mhambrey analyzes what makes Jasprit Bumrah so deadly in the shortest format of the game.  It may also indicate that India needs to nurture specialist bowlers for different formats.

India v. Australia: Crunch Time

Fri, 25 Mar 2016 22:43:43 +0000

After whitewashing Australia in Australia just a few months ago Dhoni's men will be looking to continue their domination of Steve Smith's boys.  As the game is in India the challenge for the Men in Yellow will be that much stiffer.  

Rest of India Squad Announced For Irani Trophy

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 07:24:21 +0000

The Irani Trophy will be the culmination of the first class season 2015-16, and the BCCI selectors, several of whom were present at the Ranji Finals have picked an exciting squad, that has a nice balance of pace and spin.  Interesting to note that Naman Ohja has been given the responsibility of captaining the side.  Does this indicate that the selectors are thinking of him as a long term replacement for Dhoni in the longest format of the game?

Forty Times Champions Mumbai Again in Ranji Finals

Thu, 18 Feb 2016 17:29:44 +0000

In a rematch of a few seasons ago, Mumbai face Saurashtra in the finals.  Once again a few Big names will be missing including Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane from Mumbai and Ravindra Jadeja from Saurashtra, but hopefully Saurashtra will put up a better show than they did in 2012-13 when they were thorougly outclassed by Mumbai who had Tendulkar playing in his last Ranji game.
