Kohli: Results More Important Than Landmarks

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 18:18:51 +0100

The Indian captain is leading the team to new heights with his singular focus on results and an "un-Indian" attitude towards personal landmarks.

Duleep Trophy Squads and Schedule Announced

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 17:58:37 +0100

The Duleep Trophy will be played on a sqad basis rather than a Zonal basis as in the past.  Hopefully this will ensure more challenging matches.  Kanpur and Lucknow the two U.P. centers are set to host the historic tournament.  Like last year the tournament will be played day/night with pink balls.

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

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 17:30:55 +0100

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?

Passionate Pakistan Turn Tables On Lackluster India

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 18:35:45 +0100

United India Crush Pakistan in Birmingham

Sun, 04 Jun 2017 20:21:19 +0100

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. 

India Retain No. 1 Test Ranking

Mon, 22 May 2017 18:42:36 +0100

India continue their domination at the top of the ICC Test rankings.  They grabbed the No. 1 spot late last year, after Pakistan briefly held it for a few weeks.  India with their record breaking home season look set to hold on to No. 1 for a long time.  Pakistan meanwhile after being white washed in Australia and New Zealand and despite eking out a historic first series win in West Indies against a historically weak West Indies side have plummeted to No. 6. 

What the ICC owes BCCI

Fri, 05 May 2017 17:41:24 +0100

The malcontents of the ICC have once again used their unofficial mouthpiece Cricinfo to begin a campaign of pressure to try and bring the BCCI to heel.  However they would be better served if they recognize that they must meet the legitimate and reasonable interests of their biggest benefactor the Indian cricket fan, and indirectly the BCCI.

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 22:35:30 +0100

Kuldeep Yadav was a surprise inclusion in the fourth and deciding Test of the recently concluded Border-Gavaskar Trophy series.  Here is the behind the scene story of the rise of a Chinaman from India

Captain Kohli Reviews Record Breaking Home Season

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 18:23:07 +0100

Virat Kohli, the current Indian Test Captain, reflects on a record-breaking home season.  The only other time India played as many as 13 Tests at home in a season was back in 1979-80 when it played two back to back 6-Test series against the visiting Australian and Pakistani sides and a one-off Test against England.  Back then the captain for  the Tests was the man handing the ICC Test Champion's mace to Kohli, the legendary Sunil Gavaskar.  India won 4, lost one and drew 8 Tests back then.  This time only two out of 13 Tests were drawn and India won 10 and lost one.  How things have changed, and for the better, both for Indian cricket and Test cricket in general since then. 

Is Steve Smith The Hillary Clinton of Cricket?

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 04:00:54 +0000

The Daily Telegraph an Australian Tabloid has called Virat Kohli the Donald Trump of Cricket accusing him of spreading "Fake News".  But the real question is whether the Australian Captain is the Hillary Clinton of Cricket?

ICC Absolves Steve Smith of Cheating

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 19:54:34 +0000

Steve Smith the Australian captain by his own admission had a “brain fade” when he sought the help of the dressing room to decide whether to review on-field umpiring decision.  The truth is this was not a one-off "brain fade" but the third time that Smith checked with the dressing room.  When it happened a third time, and TV cameras caught it the on-field umpires, who had been informed on the two previous occassions by Virat Kohli, finally intervened.  What Smith did was not only against the spirit of the game it was illegal.      

Why Not Parthiv?

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 07:03:58 +0000

The recently concluded second Test at Banglore was a missed opportunity to prepare an all-condition Indian Test squad.  Clearly Wriddhiman Saha is the top choice for glove man for the Indian team and there is no doubt he deserved to walk back into the side after his understudy Parthiv Patel did a credible job both with the gloves and especially with the bat in the series against England.  However not giving Parthiv the chance to remain in the squad as back up keeper and back up opener is something the selectors will need to seriosly reconsider

Umesh Yadav: Right Arm Fast

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 20:52:19 +0000

The upcoming Border Gavaskar Trophy is being viewed as a battle between Indian spinners and Australian batsmen, but there may be another bowler that the Australian batsmen need to be wary of.

Bangladesh Finally Make Their Indian Debut

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 19:25:05 +0000

Contrary to some suggestions that India has snubbed Bangladesh by not hosting them for a Test series for over 16 years since their Test debut back in 2000, which incidentally occured versus India, the BCCI which was instrumental in getting Bangladesh Test status has been a benefactor for the Bangladesh cricket board all these years since.

Pujara To Lead Rest of India in Irani Cup

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 21:41:04 +0000

Pujara leads a strong Rest of India team against Gujarat starting tomorrow January 20th at Cricket Club of India's venerable Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.  Recently the Rest of India has done really well against the Ranji Champions with the Rest winning 9 out of the previous 11 ocassions.  This time too the pattern is likely to be the same.  The match also has some added interest as the one-off Test against Bangladesh and the four Test series against Australia is coming up soon.  A good performance here will definitely catch the selectors' eye in case any slots open up in the Test team, either from injury or lack of form.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni Steps Down as Limited Overs Captain

Thu, 05 Jan 2017 17:34:26 +0000

India's most successful captain in both the limited over and Test format has called it quits on captaincy.  He remains available for selection as a specialist wicketkeeper batsman.  This is indeed very noble of him, as even now there is nobody who can fill his quite enormous boots as keeper/batsman in the limited format.  Virat Kohli the logical succesor to Dhoni will be grateful that he has decided to ease the transition.  Like his Test retirement, this has been a low-key affair that has kept the team's needs in mind.  This sums up the man.
