  3. Absolutely amazed at the lack of fight shown by these players. SL players in SL were putting up a better fight. Don't feel satisfied even though we have played brilliant cricket and trashed them.

  6. Program Whitewash loading - 60%

    3 out of 5 done. The series is sealed. No overboard celebration by India even after the victory. Shows that this team is hungry and determined for another whitewash and in the process break the record for the longest winning streak for India in ODIs. Bowling looks to be our strength and the Aussie middle order and lower middle order is very weak. We already have the chicken by the neck. Only thing left is the slaughter. Can VK lead India to a historic whitewash win again? Only time will tell... Bengaluru and nagpur up next.
  7. Ind vs Aus, Indore Starts at 01:30 PM IST (08:00 GMT), Sep 24 Will the real Australia please stand up? David Warner, why so mellow? Two games in and the visitors resemble a team that would much rather have cooled its collective heels in preparation for the Ashes, if there was an option to send 15 doppelgangers to play this ODI series. Who knows? Maybe that's what they did. For, in two indifferent performances at Chennai and Kolkata, whenever the tourists have been under a modicum of pressure, the batsmen have caved and let India run all over them. Hardly an Australian thing to do. There'll have to be a considerable reversal at the Holkar Stadium on Sunday if the series is not to be decided after just three games. And that'll need to come from the top of the batting order. Training in Indore, the visitors can already see a few more chinks of light, literally and metaphorically. The sight of Aaron Finch hustling between the wickets in the nets for a quick three should come as a soothing balm for a troubled middle-order that has lacked both depth and confidence to face Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal from a 100 for 3 situation. There are other positives. Marcus Stoinis has laid out a template in the calm art of playing spin that others would do well to follow. Also, Steven Smith was left truly miffed by the end of the Kolkata game, which can hardly be a good sign for opposition. India have been dominant without always purring along like a high-spec engine of a super car they desire to be. Runs have come at the top and the lower middle-order, but they will once again begin casting an introspective eye on their No. 4 - Manish Pandey, the bridge between the two. For all the coming together of idealogies the IPL's brought about, an Australia tour of India still remains something of a culture shock. All talk in the Indian camp has been about the desire to inject oomph to their spin strength. 'We're fine with fast bowlers, thank you very much' Australia have said, before gloriously jettisoning Adam Zampa to the bench in a classic act of nonconformist behavior. The visitors are simply playing by their strenghts, which is never a bad thing to do. To bring the series back to life, the batsmen will also need to play and not just turn up to the game. When: India vs Australia, 3rd ODI, September 24, 13:30 IST; 08:00 GMT Where: Holkar Stadium, Indore What to expect: Seasonal rains lashed Indore earlier in the week but the forecast for Sunday is all clear, with just a 10% chance of showers on the morning before the match. In a (un) welcome departure from Kolkata and Chennai, the curator has promised 'lots of runs' and slightly less purchase for spinners. The last ODI in Indore may have seen a low-scorer but the curators of Madhya Pradesh know a thing or two about feeding the double-hundred hungry. Team News: India With a series win at stake, India will steer clear of making changes unless enforced by injury. Manish Pandey has had two unconvincing games in the series at a time when he could have put the hammer down and sealed his spot for good. So KL Rahul remains in contention, although India will offer Pandey at least another game. The bowling combination - a slinger, a swinger, two wrist spinners and an all-rounder - will continue to keep Ravindra Jadeja out although India will begin to consider the cushion of a sixth bowling option (Kedar Jadhav) on a good batting day. Probable XI: Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal Australia "He brings a lot of aggression at the top of the batting order," said Warner without definitely confirming the return of Finch. If the burly opener shakes off his calf niggle to get into the playing XI, that would resign Hilton Cartwright to the bench. Since his maiden ODI hundred against Pakistan in January, Matthew Wade has been dismissed for single-figure scores in five of the six innings, with his scores reading 35, 5, 8, 2, 9 and 2. Peter Handscomb practiced with the 'keeping gloves under the watchful eyes of Brad Haddin and could be a possible inclusion. Probable XI: David Warner, Aaron Finch, Steven Smith (c), Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade/Peter Handscomb (wk), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kane Richardson Did you know? - Virat Kohli is 41 runs away from scoring 2000 runs as skipper. He has 1959 runs from 34 innings and has six innings in hand to break AB de Villiers's record of fastest to 2000 runs as skipper. - India have won all their four ODIs at the Holkar Stadium - two against England and one each against West Indies and South Africa. - A win in the third ODI would equal India's longest winning streak - nine ODIs between 14 Nov 2008 and 05 Feb 2009. Kohli now has had three separate streaks of eight wins each. What they said: "When we became world champions, we were playing with a different team. There was a different dynamic. The team has undergone some chopping and changing. We have to find a stable team and one which works out best for the 2019 World Cup." - David Warner reckoned that the current Australian ODI team was still a work in progress. "They [Kuldeep and Chahal] are getting better day by day. But they are not taking things for granted, not taking things lightly, so that's a good thing." - Ajinkya Rahane jumps in on the wrist spinner bandwagon. Teams: India (From): Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli(c), Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni(w), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, Lokesh Rahul, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav Australia (From): Aaron Finch, David Warner, Steven Smith(c), Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade(w), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kane Richardson, James Faulkner, Peter Handscomb, Adam Zampa, Hilton Cartwright http://m.cricbuzz.com/cricket-commentary/18858/ind-vs-aus-3rd-odi-australia-tour-of-india-2017
  8. What terrific bowling that..anyone who saw his bowling yesterday would have noticed the difference between bhuvi that played in SL and this bhuvi.Made the pitch look like it was lush green. 2 great wickets up-front at that economy rate.. brilliant performance. Yes Kohli played a superb knock of 91 but he does that always...bhuvi should have got the MoM.

  10. Date: Sep 17, 2017 Start Time: 13:30 IST | 08:00 GMT | 13:30 Local Venue: MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai last A long home season of limited overs cricket looms ahead for Virat and his boys as they welcome the mighty Aussies for 5 ODIs and 3 T20Is. .Australia are without pace spearheads Mitchell Starc & Josh Hazlewood due to injury. With Aaron Finch ruled out for the first few games, Peter Handscomb, who batted out of his skin in the Chittagong Test against Bangladesh, has been named as Finch's cover . The Indian team selectors haven't announced a replacement for Shikhar Dhawan for the first three ODIs, who has requested leave to look after his unwell wife. It's widely believed that Ajinkya Rahane would partner Rohit Sharma at the top of the order but with Manish Pandey making a fair claim for a spot in the middle order and Kedar Jadhav cementing his spot as a utility man; it remains to be seen who makes the final XI on Sunday. Would India make the mistake to underestimate their opponents? One thing's certain that with Virat at the helm, he'll not be taking anything for granted. Squad Australia ODI squad: Steve Smith (c), David Warner, Ashton Agar, Hilton Cartwright, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Patrick Cummins, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, Adam Zampa. India squad (first three ODIs): Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Ajinkya Rahane, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami.
  11. He leads from the front, Aus targetting him, wanted to bring him down ro win the test. He should have played even if he is 70 % %it. Show them he is made of steel balls. This is chickening out at a crucial time, will probably surrender them the BG trophy. Is Kohli a koLI (chicken in kannada)? Bata ..(as Nana Patekar says)
  12. Shots fired.
  13. Lots of bonhomie and 'nice talk' about respecting VK, and claiming that sledging will backfire from the Australian camp - players, coaches, retired folks alike. I'm not buying it at all. For one thing, VK is susceptible to sledging, if the intent is to get him to change his approach and disrupt his focus. Time and again he has demonstrated that. And in the celebrated innings against Johnson, few recall or pay heed to the fact that VK got completely carried away and almost got himself out twice in 10 balls. Luck was with him that day, and he went on to hit a few more good looking boundaries which pad the highlights. So even though the outcome was not completely in favor of the Aussies, the sledging worked. I expect them to be right up in VK's face this series. Especially if they get to put up a score and a wicket or so falls. Like a pack of hyenas, are these Aussies. They will not let any opportunity to bark, slide. Nothing wrong with it. But just goes to show you how much fluff and utter nonsense fills out the media "coverage" of cricket.
  14. What will be the outcome of this series ,will India win 4-0 or Australia will put some fight
  15. Final game of the series. New Zealand leads the series 1-0. Guptill is not going to feature in this game due to injury.
  16. Heavy Rain predicted as of now . The 2nd Best match of group stages is going down the drain. Even a 5 over contest will be happily accepted. Was looking forward to the clash of these two teams on foreign soil. Will keep you guys updated and will also put up a good OP later. RAIN THREAT DELAYS OP
