  1. India’s hopes of an early finish to the series were shattered by the hosts in Antigua, as West Indies snatched an unlikely 11-run win over the visitors on Sunday (July 3) in the fourth ODI to leave the series well-poised at 1-2.
  2. At a charity event hosted by current India captain Virat Kohli, India’s wicketkeeper MS Dhoni has revealed a surprising pick as the hardest bowler he’s ever faced. It is none another than former Pakistan quick Shoaib Akhtar. All the fast bowlers are quite difficult, with the limited technique I had, it was very difficult to face the fast bowlers,” Dhoni said. “Still, if I had to pick one, I would pick Shoaib Akhtar.” “Very simple reason: he was quick, he was fast, he could bowl a yorker, he could bowl a bouncer but you never expected a beamer. He was a bit unpredictable [but] he was fun to play against.”
  3. Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal has been omitted from the Champions Trophy squad after he failed two fitness tests in two days, ahead of the Champions Trophy next month. Akmal, who had been included in the Champions Trophy squad after previously being dropped in the aftermath of Pakistan’s 4-1 ODI series lost to Australia in January, has been asked to travel home from England.

  4. India have recalled Dinesh Karthik in their squad for the Champions Trophy in place of injured Manish Pandey, who will miss the event with a left side strain. Pandey picked up the injury during a practice session for Kolkata Knight Riders ahead of their IPL Eliminator against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday (17th May).

  5. Younis Khan, who walks away from international cricket as Pakistan’s most prolific Test batsman, is now content with what he has achieved in his 17-year long career. “All the cricket I’ve played – for club, department, association, county, in Australia, wherever – when I’m gone if you ask any of them, they won’t be able to say that Younis Khan left something in the tank. I gave 200% everywhere I played.” Younis said. “Two-three years ago, I was about to retire but I got the motivation to try and get to 10,000 runs. As a captain, player, junior, senior, I put it all out there, whatever I had. Whatever I could, with bat, ball, in the field. No regrets either. We won a world title, we beat Australia, leveled a series in England. We performed, I performed so there’s nothing left that I really wanted to do.” Source: http://www.cricketopinion.com/news/g...t-younis-khan/
  6. Rishabh Pant is a serious talent. Indian cricket should take care of him.
  7. The BCCI had no option but to participate in the Champions Trophy.
  8. Former BCCI vice-president Rajeev Shukla said the board is not mulling the option of playing Pakistan's home series at a neutral venue. “We have had a consistent policy that we will play on each other’s soil,” Shukla said. “Pakistan’s security situation is not such where you can have a series on their soil. Only Zimbabwe has played a series and no other countries are touring Pakistan. They are not being able to provide adequate security. First, you make your venues such where you can provide fool-proof security. And for India, the security concerns are even more. How can we risk our players?” Source: http://www.cricketopinion.com/news/india-pakistan-series-not-possible-without-governments-permission-bcci/
  9. I think the best of Mohammad Amir is yet to come. His best years are ahead of him
