  1. Combined Indo Pak All Time ODI Team

    Just for fun, since the group is dull today! So, here's my dream Indo-Pak combined ODI team... Mind you, I am going without stats right now. And I am considering players who I have seen. Here's my list - Sachin Viru Kohli Saeed Anwar Yuvraj Dhoni Wasim Akram Kumble Saqlain Mushtaq Waqar Shoaib 12th and 13th players- Kapil Ddev Imran Khan The reason why Kapil and Imran dont make it to the team is because the batting and bowling is so strong, we dont need outdated players. More importantly, Imran was too slow as a batsman to be accomodated in the present ODI scenario, Kapil has a strong chance of replacing Yuvi or Saeed. I do believe this has to be almost the best combined team ever for ODI. Please share your teams and your thoughts!
  2. After receiving an eight-wicket thrashing in the second Twenty20 International , India will aim for a better show when they take on Australia in their third and final cricket match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Squads: India: Virat Kohli (captain), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Ashish Nehra, Lokesh Rahul, Axar Patel. Australia: David Warner (captain), Moises Henriques, Aaron Finch, Tim Paine (wicket-keeper), Daniel Christian, Glenn Maxwell, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Travis Head, Adam Zampa, Andrew Tye, Kane Richardson.
  3. India vs Australia T20I series will continue with the second T20 international in Guwahati. The match offers an opportunity for Australia to bounce back in the series and level it and for India, it is a chance to wrap up the series by winning the second consecutive game. India (probable) 1 Rohit Sharma, 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Virat Kohli (capt), 4 Manish Pandey, 5 Kedar Jadhav, 6 MS Dhoni (wk), 7 Hardik Pandya, 8 Kuldeep Yadav, 9 Yuzvendra Chahal, 10 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 11 Jasprit Bumrah Australia (probable) 1 David Warner (capt), 2 Aaron Finch, 3 Travis Head, 4 Moises Henriques/Glenn Maxwell, 5 Marcus Stoinis, 6 Dan Christian, 7 Tim Paine (wk), 8 Nathan Coulter-Nile, 9 Adam Zampa/ Andrew Tye, 10 Kane Richardson, 11 Jason Behrendorff
  4. 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. Bengaluru, October 6: Ian Pont has good amount of success as a bowling coach. The Englishman has been imparting lessons on how to increase pace combined with accuracy over the last three years through Ultimate Pace Foundation (UPF). Pont, who coached international teams like Bangladesh and associated with top-of-the-shelf pacers like Dale Steyn, will conduct clinics across India in cities like Gurgaon and Vadodara to help aspiring Indian quicks gain in experience and skill ahead of sterner tests. Pont took some time off from his hectic schedule to talk to Mykhel.com about pace bowling, UPF, contemporary quick men among others. Excerpts: UPF....how's it coming along over the last three years? I started the UPF in Bengaluru in January 2014. Since then we have had 14 camps and have others planned. It's tough without a sponsor but we have spread the word to Delhi, Pune, Vadodara and Hyderabad. The coaching is based on my Four Tent Pegs developed form 20 years of research and how technical fast bowling shares many crossovers with javelin and baseball pitching - both sports which I have taken part in. Our website www.ultimatepacefoundation.com has had more than 220,000 visits in this time. Unlike other well-funded places like MRF Pace Foundation, UPF works exclusively on developing speed and teaching bowlers how to bowl quicker and more accurately. You are a regular to India in this period, have you noticed any change in the approach of young Indian bowlers? Indian bowlers bowl far too much in my view. Often they bowl for hours on end and get very little in return. It becomes very hard to develop talent without technical input and interaction. When I first started coaching in India, players were hesitant to respond and really just sat there. But now, their mindset towards learning fast bowling as changed. I believe that you should coach others as you wish to be coached yourself. In the present Indian set up, pacers get as much significance as spinners. Glad to see this cultural shift within cricket? It is great to note that India is focusing less on spin to win matches. It is terrific to see quicks doing well. But the challenge of any great quick is to take wickets overseas and win Tests in foreign conditions. The second thing is producing bowlers regularly bowling 150 kph to challenge the best batting techniques. We have yet to witness either yet, so India has work to do in this respect. As I said there are some good signs and it would be good to see the world's fastest coming out of India soon. https://www.mykhel.com/cricket/mindset-of-indian-fast-bowlers-is-changing-ian-pont-070712.html

  9. 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.
  10. This team is moving towards world domination... The other streak was between Nov 2008 & Feb 2009. Special credits to the captain VK Aus on the other hand now have their 17th winless game on the road. It's going from worse to hopeless for the world champions.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.

  16. Another Dead Rubber match. All the bench warmers who haven't featured in the first 3 ODIs are likely to get a game... SL on the other hand have more trouble ahead. No Chandimal. No Kapugedera. Mallinga to lead the side. More to Follow....

  23. Virender Sehwag is a former Indian cricketer, often considered as one of the most destructive batsman of the cricket. Virender Sehwag is an aggressive right-handed opening batsman and a part-time right-arm off-spin bowler. He played his first One Day International in 1999 and joined the Indian test side in 2001. In April 2009, Virender Sehwag became the only Indian to be honoured as the Wisden Leading Cricketer in the World for his performance in 2008, subsequently becoming the first player of any nationality to retain the award for 2009. Let's take a look at 8 of the unknown facts about the man we chose to call by the name of "VIRU" Virender Sehwag: 1. Virender Sehwag was banned in his Test Debut Match. His debut match was against South Africa at Bloemfontein, Nov 3-6, 2001, however it didn't exactly turned out bravo. He was banned by the MATCH REFEREE Mike Denness for over appealing more than required. 2. Virender Sehwag was once booed by numerous Bangladeshi Cricket Fans. His remarks on Bangladesh Cricket Team as a unimportant "ORDINARY" group earned him a considerable amount of contempt from the Bangladeshi Cricket Supporters. Subsequently, after winning a Test Match against Bangladesh, he had to go through a lot of bantering and boeing while he was on his way for the post match conference. 3. During 2011 World Cup campaign, Virender Sehwag was the one to launch 1st boundary of India’s innings on the very first ball in 5 consecutive matches. There is reason why we called him the most destructive batman of our era. 4. The God of Cricket Sachin Tendulkar himself looks for inspiration from Virender Sehwag to play when he is in ‘NERVOUS 90s’. He has said this many times and he stand by it. Virender Sehwag never gives apprehensions about negativities while he is batting. He just goes after the bowler. It is always do or die for him. 5. Virender Sehwag’s father once banned him from playing cricket, he was once injured by a terrible blow from a cricket ball which hurled his tooth out of his mouth during a cricket match. His father was angry and concerned as well and accordingly banned him from playing cricket. In any case, his mom helped him and elevated the boycott. 6. Apart from his father, Virender Sehwag was once slapped by John Wright on account of his poor performance. Yes, the most destructive batsman was once slapped by John Wright. However, an apology was expected by John Wright by Sachin Tendulkarrequested that Virender Sehwag keep this issue under control as John Wright resembled a father figure to everybody in the dressing room. Virender Sehwag generally avoid speaking of this incident out in public. 7. Virender Sehwag has a doppelganger and he is a Software Engineer. Yes, there is to be sure another Virender Sehwag with more hairs on his head and he has a much tougher job to do. His name is Girish Mallenahally. He is a Software Engineer. SOURCE: Sehwag
