  3. Eng vs WI, London Starts at 03:30 PM IST (10:00 GMT), Sep 07 Preview It has been an English summer of entertaining Test cricket which has, at times, been of the very highest quality but at others has been dramatically less so. The second Test at Headingley was an illustration: a fine match with plenty of drama and fluctuations of fortune and some high class performances but one which was also potted with plenty of average cricket throughout. That the Test match season finishes with a series decider is, though, in keeping with the entertaining nature of the games this summer. With a resurgent Windies looking to cause one of the biggest Test upsets in recent history by winning the series and with England looking to go into a vital Ashes tour this winter on the back of two series victories, this is high stakes cricket. England's defeat in Leeds was further evidence that they remain a frustratingly inconsistent work in progress. After three consecutive Test wins, two against South Africa and one against Windies at Edgbaston, it was a sobering loss. Captain Joe Root and coach Trevor Bayliss both lamented their side's poor showing with the bat in the first innings at Headingley and it is the batting which exercises the selectors most ahead of the Ashes. Mark Stoneman and Dawid Malan both scored half-centuries in Leeds but could do with another commanding score in this match to give them confidence ahead of Australia and it is shaping up to be an important match for Tom Westley, who has just 19 runs in the series. All three of these players have their qualities but Test match cricket is a demanding place and they are running out of time to establish themselves before the Ashes. It could be a special match for James Anderson who needs just three wickets to reach 500 in Test cricket. Bayliss was unhappy with England's performance with the ball in the second Test too, thinking his team had bowled too short, but Anderson and Stuart Broad very rarely get things wrong two games in a row. Toby Roland-Jones, who replaces Chris Woakes in the final eleven, has taken 14 wickets in his three Tests to date and will add more control than Woakes was able to provide. Windies have not won a Test series overseas against anyone other than Bangladesh and Zimbabwe since 1994/95, when they beat New Zealand, so they will lack for no motivation at Lord's. Their performance at Headingley was all the more impressive given their three day capitulation at Edgbaston but, as with England, consistency is their issue. Stuart Law, Windies' coach, hopes that the victory in Leeds will give his players the confidence that they belong at Test level which will in turn help deliver improved performances. Despite the excellence of Shai Hope and Kraigg Brathwaite in the previous match, there are areas for Windies to improve. Their fielding at Headingley was poor, with a raft of dropped catches, and their bowlers struggled to maintain pressure for long periods. Shannon Gabriel's pace discomforted England's batsmen in the previous match but Kemar Roach and Jason Holder need to back him up with more consistency and Devendra Bishoo could do with some more bowling too. Two inconsistent teams, a number of high-class players alongside some with plenty to prove and a winner takes all game at Lord's. As a season finale goes, it is set up perfectly. When: Thursday September 7, 2017. 11:00am start Where: Lord's Cricket Ground, London. What to expect: The Lord's pitch had a green tinge the day before the game but is likely to be good for batting on the first two days. Earlier this season against South Africa, the pitch deteriorated sharply as the game wore on although more grass on the pitch for this match should mean it holds together for longer. The weather is set to be mixed with some rain forecast. Team News: England England have confirmed that Tony Roland-Jones will replace Chris Woakes in the only change from the team that played at Headingley. That means no place for Hampshire's young leg-spinner Mason Crane despite it being the original intention of England's management for him to play here. Windies Windies will name their team at the toss tomorrow. The main area of consideration for the tourists is whether leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo will keep his place in the team or another seamer, perhaps Miguel Cummins, will be selected. Given Bishoo's lack of bowling in Leeds and the green tinge of the Lord's surface, Cummins may be favourite. Stats/Trivia The last time West Indies won a series in England was in 1988. Only three members of the current squad were born then - Devendra Bishoo, Kemar Roach and Shannon Gabriel. The last time West Indies won two successive Tests in an away series was way back in January 1993 in Adelaide and Perth to clinch the series after trailing 0-1. James Anderson has taken 81 wickets at Lord's. If he gets three more wickets in this Test, he will reach the landmark of 500 wickets and he will also have the most records by a fast bowler at a particular venue. Joe Root needs one more score of fifty or more to break AB de Villiers record of scoring 50 or more in 12 consecutive Tests. Teams: Windies (From): Kraigg Brathwaite, Kieran Powell, Devendra Bishoo, Kyle Hope, Shai Hope, Roston Chase, Jermaine Blackwood, Shane Dowrich(w), Jason Holder(c), Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel, Shimron Hetmyer, Alzarri Joseph, Raymon Reifer, Miguel Cummins England (From): Alastair Cook, Mark Stoneman, Tom Westley, Joe Root(c), Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow(w), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Mason Crane, Toby Roland-Jones
  4. a good toss to win from BD 155/5 currently.
  5. India would aim to cap off their super successful Sri Lanka tour with another ruthless victory in the one-off T20 International here tomorrow. Any other result than India's resounding win looks highly unlikely tomorrow, consdering the visitors' rampaging run in the preceding Test and ODI series, where they whitewashed the hosts 3-0 and 5-0 respectively. The game provides India an opportunity to fine-tune team combination ahead of the upcoming T20 home series against Australia and New Zealand. In total, India would play nine T20 Teams: India: India: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Ajinkya Rahane, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur. Sri Lanka: Upul Tharanga (c), Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella, Dilshan Munaweera, Dasun Shanaka, Milinda Siriwardana, Wanindu Hasaranga, Akila Dananjay, Jeffrey Vandersay, Isuru Udana, Seekkuge Prasanna, Thisara Perera, Lasith Malinga, Suranga Lakmal, Vikum Sanjaya.
  6. 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....
  7. After comfortable win over Sri lanka in the previous match ,India will look to dominate Sri Lanka in the 2nd Odi . Weather Teams: India: Virat Kohli (capt), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Ajinkya Rahane, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur.

  8. India vs Srilanka , 5 match ODI series 1st ODI at Dambulla. Start time. : 1430 local (0900GMT) Telecast : Sony Six, Sony Six HD and Sony Ten 3. Sony Liv app will have live streaming . Weather : Expected to be cloudy, but fine, with temperatures reaching a high of around 31C during the day.Some late evening showers predicted ( source : Cricinfo ) Pitch : With a batting-friendly wicket on offer, 300-plus scores have been achieved twice at this venue this year. It shouldn't be any different for the opening game of the five-match series starting on Sunday. Showers are forecast late in the afternoon (Cricbuzz) MATCH PREVIEW : Going into the five-match series, starting on Sunday in Dambulla, Sri Lanka have plenty to play for. Upul Tharanga captained Sri Lanka have face to regain after being beaten by Zimbabwe and then smashed by India in the Test series. Additionally, they need two wins at least to qualify automatically for the 2019 World Cup. For India have a a squad brimming with abundance and confidence. Some of the Test regulars have left and the the MSK Prasad-led selection panel also decided to rest R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami. But that doesn't mean Sri Lanka can breathe easy as the ones coming in are able replacements, capable of winning matches on their own. In Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, India have two quality seam options while Hardik Pandya can also pitch in. The spin department is exciting, with the presence of Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel and if this doesn't appear formidable for the hosts, wait for the batting unit. Rohit Sharma has returned to the ODI squad after being rested for the West Indies ODIs while KL Rahul and Manish Pandey are also back in the squad, having missed the Champions Trophy and the Caribbean tour due to injuries. With the presence of Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane and Kedar Jadhav, along with Pandya and MS Dhoni, captain Virat Kohli has plenty of options, leaving him and the team management with a happy headache. With a rotation policy being proposed by the selection panel to build a core for the World Cup in 2019, the ones presented with an opportunity in this series will be keen to make it count and cement their spots. Predicted XIs : India : Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), KL Rahul, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah Srilanka : 1 Niroshan Dickwella (wk), 2 Danushka Gunathilaka, 3 Kusal Mendis, 4 Upul Tharanga (capt.), 5 Angelo Mathews, 6 Chamara Kapugedara, 7 Wanindu Hasaranga, 8 Thisara Perera, 9 Akila Dananjaya, 10 Lasith Malinga, 11 Dushmantha Chameera P.S.

  20. New Delhi: If you have plans for Sunday with your friends or family, you still have time to cancel them. Yes, a few of your friends or family members might just get upset if you do not turn up for pre-scheduled plans. But then, it cannot get bigger than this Sunday if you are a sports aficionado. Two epic clashes are lined up as Virat Kohli and boys take on Pakistan in the final of the Champions Trophy at the Oval while the Indian and Pakistani hockey teams will also be crossing swords in the Hockey World League (HWL) semi-finals. Those who are following the Champions Trophy closely know that the Men in Blue beat Bangladesh in the semi-final on Thursday to set a date with arch-rivals Pakistan in a blockbuster clash this Sunday. While that match will start at 3pm IST, the Indian hockey team led by Manpreet Singh will also take the field on Sunday against Pakistan in London at 6.30 pm IST. The hockey teams will be battling it out at The Hockey World League (HWL) semi-finals. In the first game, India thrashed Scotland 4-1. They will play Canada on Saturday and then lock horns with Pakistan on Sunday. India is currently ranked 6th in World Hockey, while Pakistan are 13th. Teams who qualify from this tournament will play in the HWL finals which will be held in Bhubaneswar.There used to be a time when India playing Pakistan in hockey was considered as fierce a rivalry as it is in cricket now. But those days are gone now. Nonetheless, both teams will be out there wearing the national jersey and hopefully the Indian boys will win the double over Pakistan in England and give the fans back home a reason to smile.
