Indian Women Show Men The Way

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 23:33:39 +0000

Before Virat Kohli and his men sealed the ODI series against South Africa 4-1, the Indian women had sealed their series against the Lady Proteas' 2-1 in similar emphatic manner with Smriti Mandhana scoring a classy 135 and fifties from Harmanpreet Kaur and Veda Krishnamurthy followed by a familiar trial by spin. 

India Retain No. 1 Test Ranking for 2nd Year in a Row

Sat, 27 Jan 2018 18:11:34 +0000

India retain their No. 1 Test ranking for a second year in a row after their magnificent win on a trechearous Johannesburg wicket, where first they gutsed it out with the bat and then blew away the home team with their fiery fast bowling.  

Best Indian Bowling Unit Ever?

Thu, 25 Jan 2018 19:33:08 +0000

One of the things to note is that India have bowled out South Africa 5 times in 5 innings in the Tests in South Africa so far, and if their batsmen can apply themselves and give the bowlers a decent total to defend in the 4th innings in Johannesburg they could do it for a sixth time and in the process help India win the match.  This contrasts with the serious lack of quality spinners that South Africa the current No. 2 Test side has, no disrespect to Keshav Maharaj.  India on the other hand have two of the BEST spinners in the world in the two Ravis: Ashwin and Jadeja, supported by a plethora of classy back ups such as Amit Mishra, Kuldip Yadav, Yuzuvendra Chahal, etc.  And they also have a phalanx of fast men who are comparable to any fast bowling unit in the world.  The Indian bowling coach B. Arun explains how this came about.

Sun, 07 Jan 2018 03:45:17 +0000

Kohli and Company Step into the Whirlwind

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 18:27:29 +0000

India the current No. 1 Test side by a large margin, have had a dream run in Test cricket starting with the tour to Bangladesh in 2014-15.  Their dominance has been stunning.  21 wins and only 2 losses studded across 9 consecutive series wins, where they beat every team including South Africa, Australia, England, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, West Indies, and Bangladesh.  In the process Virat Kohli is now the Only captain in Test history to have lost less than 10% of his matches.  Having lost only 3 out of his 32 Tests.  Not Steve Waugh, not Don Bradman, not Ricky Ponting, not Clive Lloyd, and certainly not Steve Smith who has lost nearly one third of the matches he has captained can match his record currently.  But Team India and Kohli himself are about to be Tested like they haven't been in a long while.

Squads for T20Is v. Sri Lanka and Tests v. South Africa

Tue, 05 Dec 2017 19:37:32 +0000

BCCI selectors seemed to be keen on inducting youngsters and rewarding performers for the T20I series agains Sri Lanka.  A lot of new and deserving names are included.  For the Test team to South Africa it is on expected lines... the only real surprise is the recall of Parthiv Patel as back-up keeper and opener.  Jasprit Bumrah has been knocking on the Test door for a while.

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 18:03:45 +0000

India's "Goofy" Paintal Hangs Up His Boots

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 18:16:57 +0000

When Ashish Nehra made his international debut back in 1998, Kuldeep Yadav, India’s mystery spinner was just four. The lanky bowler burst onto the scene with a not-so-smooth action, but the one that sent the ball at high pace. When he traveled outside, his pace combined with swing, making life difficult for the batsmen. Eighteen years since he debuted, Nehra underwent over 10 surgeries owing to that action but not once did he compromise on pace. At his fastest he touched 150 kmph, and along with Zaheer Khan, Javagal Srinath, and Ajit Agarkar who could all top 145 kmph... was part of the emerging fast bowling culture that now sees India with a plethora of quick men who can give it back with the best...

You Again?! Redux

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 22:15:03 +0000

The ever money hungry BCCI has conjured up another Test series instead of allowing Indian players to participate fully in the Ranji Trophy, the premiere domestic First Class tournament.  What will this achieve?  India need to prepare for the more daunting challenge of facing South Africa in South Africa around the turn of the new year...  This series doesn't seem to fit the bill.  The only positive will be that Lanka having just swept Pakistan in UAE will not come in as the total no-hopers the shellacking they took from India in Lanka threatend to make them.  Anyway here is the schedule of matches

Indian Women Awarded $75,000 each for World Cup Performance

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 16:30:55 +0000

The BCCI announced a cash award of INR 50 Lakhs per player and INR 25 Lakhs per support staff for the excellent performance of the Women's Team in the recently concluded ICC Women's World Cup, where they lost a closely fought final against eventual winners England at Lord's.  The prize money is definitely welcome, but what woulld have been even more welcome is if the BCCI began the groundwork to establish a Women's IPL tournament.  Maybe the upcoming ICC Women's T20 World Cup will be a chance for the Indian women to showcase their skills in the shortest format of the game and make their case for a professional league even stronger.  Afterall if a country like Australia with a population of 25 million or so can have a Women's T20 league why not India with over fifty times the population?

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 17:35:45 +0000

United India Crush Pakistan in Birmingham

Sun, 04 Jun 2017 19:21:19 +0000

Prior to India's defense of the ICC Champions Trophy, a news story peddled by Cricinfo about the supposed serious rift in the Indian camp between captain Virat Kohli and coach Anil Kumble broke.  When others questioned the veracity of the story Cricinfo took the unusual stand of doubling down on its claim of such a rift by citing "unnamed" sources who apparently had direct knowledge of the alleged rift... while not presenting either Kohli's or Kumble's take on the issue.  On the eve of the match the issue once again raised its head at a pre-match conference and Kohli flatly denied such a rift and rubbished the report.
