  1. Riding on an impressive Twenty20 International series win, an upbeat India will eye another dominant performance against hosts England in the three-match One-day International series, which begins at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Thursday.

  4. Pakistan target series win Quotes "It was very clear where we needed to improve from last week. We've had some good preparation, the guys have really worked hard and now it's just doing it, going out and proving a point, putting a really strong performance in as a group and showing some pride in the badge.'" Joe Root expects a response from his team after their humiliation at Lord's "We have to forget Lord's and move on to this now. If we want to move ahead as a team we have to forget our wins. We did well, we enjoyed it for two days, but now we're here." Sarfraz Ahmed on keep focus Big Picture On an overcast Tuesday afternoon just over two weeks ago in Malahide, Pakistan found themselves three wickets down for 14, still needing 146 more to prevent Ireland becoming the first team since 1877 to win their maiden Test match. With a worrying recent history of fourth-innings implosions, Pakistan looked set for a defeat so ignoble it would define their time on British shores this tour, and highlight the malaise of their Test team since, indeed, the last time they were in the UK just under two years ago. Imam-ul-Haq and Babar Azam carried them through that ordeal, and since then, the post-mortems of sharp declines in Test fortunes are suddenly the opposition's problems. The series against England began with two Test teams that had, with varying degrees of rapidity, gone from being the best in the world to distinctly mediocre. Pakistan's - as you would expect - was a more expeditious, less explicable downturn, albeit one hastened by the retirement of two of their greatest batsmen, Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq, while England's arguably has reasons stretching back for a decade: from cricket no longer being on free-to-air TV, to the marginalisation of the County Championship, to their well-documented struggles in replacing Andrew Strauss and Graeme Swann, not to mention Kevin Pietersen and Andy Flower. But the manner of England's decimation at Lord's - their fifth defeat in 12 Tests at that holiest of grounds, where previously they had not lost since 2005 - may be the jolt the home side need to assess how far they've fallen. In last week's Test, England were out-thought by a team that isn't exactly renowned for its meticulous planning, out-fielded by an outfit that has never been a torch-bearer in that regard, and out-batted by a group whose susceptibility to the moving ball is well-documented. After all that, it was hardly a surprise that Pakistan out-bowled them, too. The dismissiveness, almost derisive, with which Sarfraz Ahmed's young team put England away seems to have set alarm bells ringing at the ECB, with an urgency that wasn't in evidence even in the wake of a 4-0 drubbing in the Ashes earlier this year. As a result, Pakistan find themselves in the unfamiliar position of being the steady clinical team from which no drama is expected, while England have faced all manner of uncertainty over the past few days. The only blot on a perfect Test at Lord's for Pakistan was the loss of Babar to a wrist fracture, while Joe Root's men have been left to contend with changes in strategy and personnel if they are to avoid a first home series loss to Pakistan in 22 years. Form guide England LDLLD Pakistan WWLLW Team news As if England didn't have plenty to ponder already, Ben Stokes is a serious doubt with a hamstring injury, with a late decision expected before the toss. Teenage prodigy Sam Curran has been brought in as cover. Chris Woakes's chances of starting in Stokes' absence look good, particularly given his all-round credentials, and though Dom Bess had an indifferent debut, it is unlikely that England will risk starting the Test without a specialist spinner. As for the batting department, Stoneman has been left out, with Jennings returning to partner Alastair Cook at the top of the order. England (probable) 1 Alastair Cook, 2 Keaton Jennings, 3 Joe Root (capt), 4 Dawid Malan, 5 Jonny Bairstow (wk), 6 Ben Stokes/Chris Woakes, 7 Jos Buttler, 8 Mark Wood, 9 Dom Bess, 10 Stuart Broad, 11 James Anderson It is much more straightforward for Pakistan. With Babar Azam out of the side, Usman Salahuddin is set to make his debut at Leeds tomorrow. No other changes are expected. Pakistan 1 Azhar Ali, 2 Imam-ul-Haq, 3 Haris Sohail, 4 Asad Shafiq, 5 Usman Salahuddin, 6 Sarfraz Ahmed (capt & wk), 7 Shadab Khan, 8 Faheem Ashraf, 9 Mohammad Amir, 10 Hasan Ali, 11 Mohammad Abbas http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/18025/preview/1119536/england-vs-pakistan-2nd-test-pakistan-tour-of-ireland-2018/
  5. Pakistan face England at Lord’s Lord´s, London, May 23, 2018: England´s Joe Root and Pakistan´s Sarfraz Ahmed pose with England vs Pakistan Test series trophy. Photo: Action Images via Reuters Big Picture The teams were jostling for the No. 1 Test ranking. Now they are battling mid-table mediocrity. Alastair Cook and Misbah-ul-Haq were the captains. Now it's Joe Root and Sarfraz Ahmed. Younis Khan was jumping around the crease (and scoring a double century). Now Pakistan are trying to build a new middle order. It's been less than two years since England and Pakistan last met for a Test series and much has changed. The latest series, which starts at Lord's before continuing to Headingley, is a meeting of teams in various states of flux. England are still trying to find solutions to a number of familiar problem areas while Pakistan have lost three of their five series since taking the No. 1 spot shortly after the 2016 contest concluded with their series-levelling victory at The Oval. Pakistan are missing three men who were vital to that 2-2 scoreline - Misbah, Younis and the injured Yasir Shah - and another, Wahab Riaz, who could have added experience if not always direction with the ball. Their batting looks on the callow side and they almost came a cropper against Ireland, with much resting on Azhar Ali and Asad Shafiq finding their touch quickly in a short series. With the ball, however, they will, as so often, remain a threat. Quite how much Test cricket Mohammad Amir will play remains to be seen but he bowled beautifully in Ireland and if his team-mates can catch he could run through a line-up. Mohammad Abbas will be a handful if there is any nibble on offer while Shadab Khan has immense promise and also the advantage of being new to England. For England there are subplots aplenty at the beginning of a second season in charge for Root. His own position (in the batting order, not the captaincy) is one talking point - can he settle at No. 3? - which is part of a larger reshuffle of the order. Will the punt on Jos Buttler at No. 7 pay dividends or just muddy the water more? Can Dom Bess take the most of an unexpected chance? Is Mark Stoneman facing his last chance? Can Alastair Cook go again as a Test batsman? Is there life beyond James Anderson and Stuart Broad? That's a lot of questions. Of late, England's Test side haven't provided a whole lot of new answers. This season needs to change that. Team news England's one decision is between Chris Woakes and Mark Wood for the final pace-bowling slot. Wood was recalled in Christchurch at the end of March and provides extra pace. Woakes provides more with the bat. There will be a debut for 20-year-old offspinner Dom Bess. Pakistan 1 Azhar Ali, 2 Imam-ul-Haq, 3 Haris Sohail, 4 Asad Shafiq, 5 Babar Azam, 6 Sarfraz Ahmed (capt & wk), 7 Shadab Khan, 8 Faheem Ashraf, 9 Mohammad Amir, 10 Rahat Ali/Hasan Ali, 11 Mohammad Abbas England 1 Alastair Cook, 2 Mark Stoneman, 3 Joe Root (capt), 4 Dawid Malan, 5 Jonny Bairstow (wk), 6 Ben Stokes, 7 Jos Buttler, 8 Mark Wood/Chris Woakes, 9 Dom Bess, 10 Stuart Broad, 11 James Anderson http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/23581673/england-pakistan-looking-forge-new-test-identity-mid-table-battle
  6. All bowlers did well.Ishant played very vital role in picking up those two wickets and keeping lid on scoring rate . Ishant has become a bowler who will bowl long spells and be economical which is very important in keeping the lid on run rates. Monga's article says it best about Ishant. Bhuvi is a must in England , Bumrah is rising star and Shami is the leader of the attack. So the question becomes which bowler has to make way for a spinner. I would be tempted to leave Shami out. Your views.
  7. 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
  8. South Africa won the toss and elected to bat
  9. BCCI announced the squads for the tour in both formats of the game. Prithvi Shaw to lead India colts in one-day games & Haryana batsman Himanshu Rana has been named as the captain of the team in the four-day fixtures. The junior selectors have done a reasonably good job in picking up slightly different names for the two formats of the game. They have taken into consideration the playing styles of different players and then drafted them into the two squads. Squads: India U19 Team for four-day matches: Himanshu Rana (Captain), Prithvi Shaw, Shubman Gill, Manjot Kalra, Riyan Parag Das, S. Radhakrishnan, Harvik Desai, Het Patel, Harsh Tyagi, Ashok Sandhu, Rahul Chahar, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi, Darshan Nalkande, Vivekanand Tiwari. India U19 Team for one-day matches: Prithvi Shaw (Captain), Shubman Gill, Himanshu Rana, S Radhakrishnan, Salman Khan, Abhishek Sharma, Harvik Desai, Het Patel, Anukul Roy, Shiva Singh, Rahul Chahar, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi, Yash Thakur, Ishan Porel.

    IRELAND TOUR OF ENGLAND, 2017

    Ireland tour of England, 2017 MAY 05, FRIDAY England vs Ireland 1st ODI at County Ground, Bristol 15:30 IST / 10:00 GMT MAY 07, SUNDAY England vs Ireland 2nd ODI at Lord's, London 15:30 IST / 10:00 GMT
  11. In the last match,english captain Eoin Morgan blamed the incorrect dismissal of Joe Root as the reason for their loss.Anyone who has watched Root play in T20s will tell you he is a liablity and unlikely to score freely.Today also he has most likely cost England the match. May be the Irishman should have tried to find a better reason to save his English captaincy.
