  1. Jadeja should not be Ranked No.1 All-Rounder

    I still do not know how they figures out ranking? Jadeja need to perform as good as in India (2 test 13 wickets good in SL) but still over all, he not DESERVES NUMBER 1. Now Rahul is among FIRST 10 BATSMAN IN THE WORLD.(SRT rates him CLUB CRICKETER) Last year Southafrican AmLa was dropped from test ranking from number 6 to 9 because entire test series washed out in BD because rains. Stupid ICC ranking Systems.

  3. Down Memory Lane : Classic Corner Of Yester Years

    Thanks.I never think SMG hits 100 in 94 balls because in 60/60 WORLD CUP in England vs EnG.he batted all 60 overs and scored 36 not out. Later he says to G.R.VISHWANATH ( who married SMG's sister Kavita Gavaskar) '' no way we can beat Eng.even if I scores 50/100 or you can figures out, so I just batted as much as I can'' Which I think strange.
  4. ROHIT SHARMA will be new CAPTAIN of ODI so YUVI will be call back (later on ) because he is okayed for 50/50.VK do not wants to loose his captaincy but BCCI do not wants him captain of ODI MS/Kedar and others in the middle which hurts Prasad, he needs reasons to removes them. Good to try new vs 5 ODI SL/3 ODI AUS./3 ODI NZ, aged player has no chance in coming up t20 In India vs Aus 3 and vs NZ 3. Ashwin and 4 others on their way in England as of today.

  7. Down Memory Lane : Classic Corner Of Yester Years

    August 16 down the years The limpet A clingy crab is born The immovable Shivnarine Chanderpaul 1974 Birth of Shivnarine Chanderpaul. When he made his debut against England in Georgetown in 1993-94, he was the first teenager to play in a Test for West Indies since Elquemedo Willett in 1972-73. Chanderpaul's slim frame encases the ideal temperament for a Test batsman. He scored only two hundreds in his first 53 Tests, but improved that ratio significantly after that. His career run graph took a turn upwards from India's tour in 2006 - he scored seven hundreds, 14 half-centuries and averaged 73.09 from 23 Tests in the next three years. In 2005 he had been appointed captain and celebrated with a double-hundred in his home ground in Guyana. But he quit the next year to concentrate on his batting. From then on Chanderpaul became a run machine, reaching 10,000 Test runs in his 140th Test, in 2012 against Australia - in characteristic fashion, while trying to save the match. He averaged 98.7 in 2012, scoring three hundreds, including his second double. He hung at the crease like a limpet during the many times the side was in trouble, and churned out hundreds, seemingly at will. But three years later the unthinkable happened - Chanderpaul, at the age of 40, was dropped from the West Indies side after scoring only one half-century in ten innings. And after he was overlooked for a contract in December, Chanderpaul announced his retirement from international cricket. 1950 Birth of perhaps the fastest bowler of all time. When Jeff Thomson took 0 for 110 on his Test debut in 1972-73, no one knew he had a broken toe - nor could they have suspected the havoc he would wreak on his recall against England in 1974-75. He generated terrifying pace and steep bounce from a slingshot action, and took 33 cheap wickets to help Dennis Lillee destroy England 4-1 and regain the Ashes. The following season he and Lillee had a similarly traumatic effect on the touring West Indians. Held back by assorted major injuries, Thommo nevertheless took exactly 200 Test wickets (100 of them against England) and left behind memories of one of the great fast-bowling partnerships. 1950 When Alf Valentine took his sixth wicket of the innings, his tenth of the match and 33rd of the series, West Indies had dismissed England for 103 to take the Oval Test by an innings and complete a 3-1 win, their first in a series in England. The Three Ws in their batting line-up (Frank Worrell, Everton Weekes and Clyde Walcott) were as famous as the two young spinners who were commemorated in a special calypso, "those two little pals of mine" Sonny Ramadhin and Valentine 2009 Charles Coventry equalled the then-highest score in ODIs. Against Bangladesh, with Zimbabwe playing to save the series, Coventry played a superbly paced innings to reach an unbeaten 194 (off 154 balls), his maiden ODI hundred. But despite equalling Saeed Anwar's record, and single-handedly taking Zimbabwe past 300 - a total larger than any Bangladesh had successfully chased before - he ended on the losing side. Tamim Iqbal's match-winning 154 stole Coventry's thunder, and six months later Sachin Tendulkar took the record, with the format's first double-hundred. 2000 Steve Waugh and the man he once called the best one-day batsman in the world, Michael Bevan (106), put on 222 to help beat South Africa in an ODI at the Colonial Stadium in Melbourne, the first international match to be played indoors. 1860 One of the most influential cricketing figures of all time was born. Martin, Lord Hawke, averaged only 7.85 with the bat in his five Tests - but he was better known as a leader of men. He captained England in four of those matches and set an all-time record by leading Yorkshire to the County Championship eight times from 1893 to 1908. He introduced winter pay for professionals and - with the exception of John Wisden himself - was the oldest Wisden Cricketer of the Year. 1985 Unsung medium-pace swing bowler Richard Ellison completed figures of 6 for 77 on his way to ten wickets in the Edgbaston Test against Australia, which England won by an innings to take a 2-1 lead in the series. 1905 At The Oval, against Australia, on his 33rd birthday, Arthur Jones became the first substitute to keep wicket in a Test, catching Warwick Armstrong off George Hirst. Jones' Test averages were nothing to write home about (13.85 with the bat, 44.33 with the ball) but he was better known as a fielder. Sensational in the slips, he was credited with inventing the gully position. He captained Nottinghamshire from 1900 until just before his death from tuberculosis in 1914. 2014 After being starved of Test cricket for eight years, India Women returned to the country of their previous Test win, England, and upset the hosts in Wormsley. A team with eight debutants rolled England over for 92 on the opening day, and took a slender lead. Jhulan Goswami took four in England's second innings before half-centuries from Smriti Mandhana and Mithali Raj got India home by six wickets. Raj, who also featured in the 2006 win, was there at the end. 1983 Middle-order batsman Narsingh Deonarine was drafted into the West Indies squad during the contracts dispute of 2005 and had a start-stop career in which he made Test and ODI half-centuries against South Africa and Australia. Despite a gutsy 52 against New Zealand in Dunedin, Deonarine was dropped from the Test squad in 2013. Other birthdays 1934 Sam Trimble (Australia) resources Cricinfo.com
  8. Yes but when you scored your Maiden FIRST CLASS HUNDREDS out side india in test match Always something special.PANDYA did that.Vijay Manjrekar did it outside of India his first Maiden 100 in FC cricket was his test century in 1952.wicketkeeper Ajay Ratra also among in the list and Kapil too but he scored in Delhi while Ratra did in WI
  9. Mason Crane is 20 years old spinner, very talented he is. I do not think England selects him for First test, Mo did wonderful job vs Proteas 4 test 25 wickets and 252 runs, he gave Credit to SaQline Mustaq for his recent Success.I do not remember any of English spinner took that many wickets in England, not even Underwood took 25 in a series. Kyle Hope is very good new player, he probably début on Thursday for WI.I am very excited of Roach who is return after long time.R.Riefer is new player who did good in domestic cricket recently.
  10. Good Luck Mark Stoneman who will début on Thursday, he will open with A.Cook for England. If you lived in India or Asia game will be on air at 6.30 pm till 1.30 Am (next day) or 2 Am (next day) For USA you can watch on Roku3/Espn/ or @willow Extra from 9 am.till 4 pm or 4.30 pm (Sling offer Live cricket for $10 per month, you not need dish but need high speed internet, YOu can connect your pc with TV and watch crystal clear picture on TV )

  12. What India's victory in Sri Lanka tells you....

    I am dying to see how kohli performing in England or southafrica, he had DBL vs poor WI bowling In WI.India preferred newer venue to attract more crowd with more ticket selling plan than better or worst cricket.
  13. What India's victory in Sri Lanka tells you....

    India often poor in overseas unless vs weaker team there, so too early to say what's happen vs Philly and Andy during SOA test series. Even vs Aus /Nz ODI series our batting will be tested even those matches in India in 2017/18
