    Team for Australia series

    Who has got outside chance to get selected for world cup
  3. It was the pace of Ishant Sharma’s walk that convinced Jason Gillespie that things were clicking for the Indian bowler at Yorkshire. Ishant had this habit of dawdling slowly back to the top of his run up after he had finished bowling a ball. “Sometimes he would stand there and stare if a decision hasn’t gone his way or he wasn’t happy with the delivery or whatever. He would slowly trudge back. It wasn’t ideal. So I would keep telling him to show some urgency. When he started to do it – that was the turning point for me, not any particular spell in a match,” Gillespie says. The former Aussie pacer goes on the explain, “I would keep telling him to show urgency. In county cricket, you had to bowl 96 overs in a day. So first of all, I had to sort it out in that respect. Secondly, it meant he wasn’t wasting his time thinking about irrelevant stuff. “Get back to the top of the run up. Take a breath. Think what I am looking to achieve with this ball. What would allow me to bowl that particular delivery. Just crack on after that. And Ishant would run in and do that. No trudging, no drifting mentally, just crack on and bowl. It was good to see that he took it on board early and it showed me he cared.” The most important factor in Ishant’s success in this series is the lengths he has pinged: much fuller than his usual self. It was an angst with the 90’s generation with the other tall Indian bowler Javagal Srinath. ‘If only he would pitch it up,’ was the perennial prayer in his early years. The same with Ishant. For 11 years now. “It was clear what Ishant needed to do. Sometimes, he can bowl a little bit short and little wide and not test the batsmen’s front foot defence. The length was I think due to bowling a lot in Indian conditions. Even when you are trying to hit the top of the off stump in India, you can hit a back of length because of the (lack of) bounce. The key to bowling in the UK is the length. You have to challenge the stumps. That was what we worked. He needed to get the ball fuller, inviting the batsman to play off the front foot. And get them thinking about looking towards a positive stroke on the front foot. You are then bringing in all sorts of dismissals.” The two would sit at the balcony of the pavilion at the cricket ground in Brighton Hove and have chats over cups of coffee. “I was impressed with his work ethic and attitude. He would ask a lot of questions and was very open to listening and taking in feedback.” Ishant also enjoyed the anonymity that the small town of Hove provided him. He would go for walks and to cafes, and he was in good space mentally. He went to the Royal Brighton, with its Indian style minarets and domes, where Indian soldiers are commemorated for fighting for the British empire in the first world war. Ishant also worked on getting control over the ball that holds its line outside off. “We worked on his seam and wrist position at release. The aim was not to get this ball swing in. Have an upright seam and we talked about adjustments needed and how to keep the wrists and fingers in a particular way. We also talked about how he could use the crease better – create different angles to keep the batsmen guessing.” Over the years, Ishant has often tried getting his lengths right but something has clicked on this tour more than other time. Gillespie reckons Ishant is finally focussing on his strengths, and is keeping things really simple. “I would say he is now playing to his strengths. Sometimes you end up trying too much. He has cut out all that. He now runs in to bowl, thinking about his strengths. That’s the difference really.”
  4. Who do you think should be dropped from the playing XI for the second Test? I say drop Murali Vijay and Rohit Sharma for Prithvi Shaw and Hanuma Vihari.

    India 's tour of Australia

    India play their first T20I at the Gabba on November 21, after which the series moves on to Melbourne and Sydney. Then comes a four-Test series before the tour finally winds down with three ODIs starting January 12.
  6. http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/23620449/spot-fixing-allegations-made-one australia-test-ca-requests-evidence Cricket Australia has requested TV channel Al Jazeera for raw footage and un-edited material to determine whether allegations of spot-fixing in a Test involving Australia in India are credible and an investigation is necessary. The allegations were made by the Al Jazeera TV channel in a documentary, seen by ESPNcricinfo, which focuses on various forms of corruption in the sport. Another Test involving a different country is also under the scanner. CA responded to the claims by saying "neither the ICC or Cricket Australia is aware of any credible evidence linking Australian players to corruption in the game." The board said it has not yet had the opportunity to view the documentary or raw footage containing the allegations, and requested Al Jazeera for the same. The ICC is aware of an investigation into corruption in cricket by a news organisation and as you would expect we will take the contents of the programme and any allegations it may make very seriously. "We have already launched an investigation working with anti-corruption colleagues from Member countries based on the limited information we have received. We have made repeated requests that all evidence and supporting materials relating to corruption in cricket is released immediately to enable us to undertake a full and comprehensive investigation. The match in question in the Al Jazeera documentary is the Australia-India Test in Ranchi in March 2017. The allegations are that during a certain period of the game some Australian batsmen scored at a rate specified by fixers for the purposes of betting, which is illegal in India. In the documentary, a person Al Jazeera identified as Aneel Munawar, an Indian national who is said to work for crime syndicate D Company, is seen naming two Australian players to the undercover reporter as being part of the fix. The names of the cricketers were edited out in the documentary but Al Jazeera said it would pass on information to the relevant authorities. The channel said the two Australians named by Munawar had not responded to the allegations. Al Jazeera, however, claimed that the information passed by Munawar to the undercover reporter about run-scoring in a certain passage of play was accurate in the Test. The instruction, the channel said, was for the batsmen to score slowly so that the actual runs scored would be lower than what the illegal betting market was placing bets on. The channel said there was no evidence to indicate any other Australia players had been involved or aware of the alleged plot. "Together with the ICC, we are aware of the investigation by Al Jazeera into alleged corruption in cricket," CA chief executive James Sutherland said in a statement. "Although not having been provided an opportunity to view the documentary or any raw footage, our long-standing position on these matters is that credible claims will be treated very seriously and fully investigated. "Cricket Australia will continue to fully co-operate with the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit in its review of the matter. Neither the ICC or Cricket Australia is aware of any credible evidence linking Australian players to corruption in the game. Cricket Australia and the ICC take a zero-tolerance approach against anyone trying to compromise the integrity of the game. "We urge Al Jazeera to provide all un-edited materials and any other evidence to the ICC investigation team, so, if appropriate, a full and thorough investigation can be conducted."

  9. Couldn't see an Ashes Series thread so figured I'd start one. @Laaloo, feel free to sticky this Thread old sport. Obviously I will have an keen interest in how Australia go given Pakistan's own born Khawaja will likely play for Australia. I cannot see Australia losing a Test. I suspect they will whitewash England and win most games inside 4 days. The (lol) England batting line up looks very fragile except for Root how will likely struggle as most English captains do in Australia. Starc, Hazlewood and Lyon will be too strong for the batting line up while Smith (best batsman in the world), Warner (best opener in the world) and Khawaja will dominate the English retirement village pace attack. I for one would be very surpised if the scoring line wasn't 5 - 0 Australias favour at the end of the series

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

    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.
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
