  1. The threat of rain, a wet outfield and evening dew are expected to be India’s main bugbears against a new-look South African side. Squad India (probable): 1 Rohit Sharma, 2 Shikhar Dhawan/ KL Rahul, 3 Virat Kohli (capt), 4 Manish Pandey/Shreyas Iyer, 5 Rishabh Pant (wk), 6 Hardik Pandya, 7 Krunal Pandya, 8 Ravindra Jadeja/Rahul Chahar, 9 Washington Sundar, 10 Deepak Chahar, 11 Navdeep Saini South Africa (probable): 1. Quinton de Kock (capt & wk), 2 Reeza Hendricks, 3 Temba Bavuma, 4 Rassie van der Dussen, 5 David Miller, 6 Andile Phehlukwayo, 7 Dwaine Pretorius, 8 Bjorn Fortuin/George Linde, 9 Kagiso Rabada, 10 Junior Dala/Anrich Nortje, 11 Tabraiz Shamsi Pitch and conditions The pitch, too, is hard to predict, considering the rain threat. The pitch had to be covered because of afternoon showers on Saturday. Some rain has been forecast for Sunday too.

  3. Story so far Every 4 years there is a fight in the jungle to crown the King, Kangaroo is the reigning monarch but others are staking their claim. Since this is bear land, we support dear old Bhalu...Bhalu is literally a deity for Indian masses. So the tournament started a month ago and Bear got into his elements quickly, finishing opponents one after the other and laying down the marker for others. Even defeating the mighty Kangaroo on his way, leaving a trail of destruction behind. Bear became happy with his run of results, time to celebrate. But lurking in the shadows was an old enemy, an enemy who could never be King no matter how hard he tried, a cunning enemy who invented this spectacle and in one way or another enslaved all other animals in contention for more than a century each. Suffice to say he is the most hated competitor....The Bulldog. Bulldog despite being pre-tournament top seed had an underwhelming run and was almost on the verge of elimination before the fight against the Bear. Using his sorcery he changed the flora and fauna of the jungle, influenced a Markhor umpire, manipulated the environment, used Sholay wallah coin for toss etc finally defeating the Bear. Though it must be admitted the Bear was mediocre in the contest and some of the units were well past expiry date. OK then, Bear lost, Bulldog won...Bear's greatest enemy Markhor too felt the pain. This immediately caused flutter and all animals took notice. Chief among them was Bear's next opponent: the Nagin. Nagin is a special beast, composed of many tiny snakes which unite to form an Anaconda, a predator which hunts prey by strangulation as opposed to biting. The Nagin has decided to meet the Bear in the venue of latter's most recent defeat <48 hours earlier at Edgbaston, Birmingham. Divided by boundaries, united by Tagore, Bhupen Hazarika, illegal immigration, fake currency and..... भारत vs বাংলাদেশ (English part for Lanni and offended Southies ) H2H: 29-5 India Post 2015 WC QF: 4-2 India WCs: 2-1 India PREVIEW When: July 2, 2019, at 10:30 AM Local Time Where: Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham What to expect: The pitch and boundary size, which was highlighted by Virat Kohli, could be a factor again. The pitch is going to be the same one that was used for the England game. And if that two-paced track was any indication, expect the cutters from fast bowlers to come into play once again. Weather: Fine, full game expected (metoffice) Team News India: With Vijay Shankar ruled out of the tournament, India are likely to continue with the same combination that played against England. Probable XI: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah Bangladesh: Mahmudullah's fitness was a matter of concern before Bangladesh's break but he has had some practice ahead of the game, which should ease their nerves. Probable XI: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Liton Das, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mustafizur Rahman CRICBUZZ PREVIEW Let's go Team India
  4. Match number - ODI no. 417 Two of the pre-tournament favorites, India and England, are going to be playing against each other in one of the most important matches of the ICC World Cup 2019. India and England have been the top-ranked ODI teams in the last couple of years. They are both very good sides that know each other’s strengths and weaknesses quite well. This was the same venue where the spinners got a lot of help in the match between Pakistan and New Zealand. There has been some murmuring in the media about England not getting the kind of pitches it needs and this may be in a bid to pressure the groundsman at Edgbaston to prepare a flat batting track. ENGLAND England has struggled in the ICC World Cup 2019. It has now lost to Pakistan, Australia, and Sri Lanka. It still has to play India and New Zealand, two of the in-form sides, and the knives are already being sharpened. England has not become a bad side overnight but it looks like the pressure of expectations is getting to it. The mental battle will be the toughest one it faces in this match. INDIA The only side still unbeaten in this tournament, India is under little pressure. It must win another match to be certain of its semi-final spot but it has two relatively easier opponents to face after England. Even if it loses this game, nothing much will be lost.India is going to be the far more confident side going into this match on a pitch expected to take a lot of turn.

  5. All cricketing eyes are now on the World Cup and the nerves are starting to fray. Over the course of the next several weeks, many questions will be answered by the teams and their players. One of those big questions is the composition of the Indian squad. This is the team that plays the most cricket and for whom the most data are available. Over the last year or two, many questions have been raised about age, floor, ceiling, all-round skills, ability to hold fort at #4, finishing ability, team balance, wicket-keeping, wrist vs finger spin, suitability for ODI vs T20 format, and of course, recent form. We've had everybody and their uncle chime in on why they are best suited for #4 (from Rayudu to Pujara to Rahane) or for #4 seamer slot (Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav), spinner (Ashwin). Now that all possible data are in, let's line-up the suspects and see who does not belong. I hope that every one of these guys makes me eat crow with stellar performances and bring the WC back to India, but for now, let's vote. After you vote, reply to the thread with your reasoning and who should be the replacement. In no particular order: (1) Vijay Shankar: Most recent entrant to the all-rounder and #4 sweepstakes, VS has been impressive in flashes. Some days, he looks like a million bucks with bat and on others, like a cat on a hot tin roof. Seems technically compact enough, has a little bit of power and most times, a calm head (but Nidahas ...?). He is a decent fielder, too. Now, his bowling - is it really worth discussing? Not too many opportunities to showcase it and there is no argument to be made for English conditions, because the pitches are roads and the weather will be hot and trundlers are fodder. Current form looks spotty. This selection is very interesting. (2) Dinesh Karthik: 15 years of DK. 1 big moment. In a T20 match. Against Bangladesh. The man has a lot of skills, but somehow they have not come together consistently. Should he get another chance in a big tourney like this? (3) Ravindra Jadeja: I am admittedly a huge fan of Sir, mainly because of how electric he is on the field and his ever-high effort levels. If we had to pick a specialist fielder, he is the guy. Or a test bowler. But bowling 10 overs of finger spin on flat English pitches is suspect and he is not really a finisher with a bat. What is his role? (4) K L Rahul: I have been watching cricket for 40 years and can't remember anyone as enigmatic as KLR. A prodigal son. He was oft-injured early in his career and thus never established himself, and when he got a chance in 2018-19, has not impressed consistently. But, on his day, he can be completely dominant and make batting look like a cakewalk. And he had some of those days in the IPL. But those days are few and far between, and often his technical weaknesses against the incoming ball rear their ugly head before he settles.. Moreover, what is his role in an LOI context? Is he an opener? A #4? (5) Kedar Jadhav: Again, I am a huge fan of this guy, because he is one of the grittiest over-achievers. He was selected because of his domination of domestic cricket and made a big impact early on. His batting, while not pretty, is great to watch. He works the field, keeps things moving and can hit when needed. And not to forget his horizontal off-spin. But a few things work against him: he often disappears on the batting front; he is at-best a mediocre fielder; he is often injured. If he recovers from his most recent injury, how much longer before the next one? (6) M S Dhoni: Now, for some controversy. This man is an undisputed legend of the ODI game. The best keeper to ever don the gloves in ODIs. One of the most astute ODI minds. And on an on we can go. Also add IPL 2019 superstar. But, is his IPL form deceptive? Can he keep it up against the best attacks in the world? Will his body hold up in a 50-over setting over several weeks? Should we have picked a younger 'keeper instead? (7) Rohit Sharma: Another legend of the ODI game. But his recent form has been K L Rahul-esque. He is a good catcher, but his overall fitness seems suspect. He takes a long time to settle in and if he gets out like he has recently after facing 40-50 balls, it puts pressure on the guys coming later. Should we have picked a more in-form young bat instead? (8) Yuz Chahal: Wristspinners are all the rage these days and his recent form (yeah, it's the IPL, but still ..) has been decent. But he is a liability on the field and can't bat too well. Would we have been better off picking a younger wristie like Gopal or is Yuz's experience too valuable? (9) Other: Kuldeep? Bhuvneshwar? Other?
  6. Hi everyone! I recently was introduced to the sport of Cricket and I love it! One of my classmates showed me this wonderful sport for an assignment that we had due and since then I have been hooked! I am really hoping that you guys can teach me more about this sport so I can help spread it to others in my community that do not know much about it. Please take a look at this article that I made in regards to the upcoming Cricket World Cup, I would appreciate any criticism or comments that anyone could provide! https://www.buzzfeed.com/cricketfiend/a-look-around-the-cricket-world-cup-2019-teams-3oospjudes
  7. Who has got out side chance to get selected for the world cup squad
  8. India captain Virat Kohli will not play the last two ODIs of the New Zealand series, and the T20s that follow; he has been rested for those games, the BCCI said on Wednesday. Rohit Sharma will captain India in his absence. No replacement player has been named for Kohli. https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/25831098/virat-kohli-rested-last-two-new-zealand-odis Good move. Hope Gill gets to play now.
  9. Who has got outside chance to get selected for world cup
  10. 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.”
  11. 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.
  12. Prithvi Shaw will make his Test debut in Rajkot on Thursday. Breaking from the tradition of not talking about selection before the Test, India named a XII for the opening Test against West Indies a day in advance. They were back to playing with five batsmen and a wicketkeeper after the aberration in the fifth Test of the last series when they called up Hanuma Vihari to bolster the batting. The only selection choice to be made on the morning of the Test will be between a third spinner, Kuldeep Yadav, and a third fast bowler. If India go with an extra quick, they will be handing another debut, this time to Shardul Thakur India squad: Virat Kohli (captain), Lokesh Rahul, Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur West Indies squad: Jason Holder (captain), Sunil Ambris, Devendra Bishoo, Kraigg Brathwaite, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich (wicketkeeper), Shannon Gabriel, Jahmar Hamilton, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Sherman Lewis, Keemo Paul, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Jomel Warrican, Alzarri Joseph http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/18902/preview/1157752/india-vs-west-indies-1st-test-west-indies-in-india-2018-19
  13. 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.
  14. India has rested several key players for the final match. Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav have been left out with an eye on the upcoming tour of Australia. This has opened the door for the return of seamer Siddarth Kaul, who made his T20I debut in June this year against Ireland and has played just two games for India. The Windies continue to miss Andre Russell and Ashley Nurse who pulled out of the T20I series due to injuries. Squads: India: Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Shahbaz Nadeem and Siddarth Kaul West Indies: Carlos Brathwaite (C), Fabian Allen, Shai Hope, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Keemo Paul, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Oshane Thomas, Khary Pierre, Obed McCoy, Rovman Powell, Nicholas Pooran .
  15. Bhuvneshwar Kumar getting thrashed has been a pretty comments sight recently and that can cost us world cup. The USP of Bhuvi has been swing with new ball and early wicket and even that has faded away now. Right now it looks like we got only one pacer who we can pin all our hopes on and the is Jasprit Bumrah. Now the time is very very less but we can't go on like this we should try Pacers who are going good in domestic circuit. So the question of the hour is who is next in line and can perform and is our bowling depth overrated? @express bowling @rkt.india @Rightarmfast @Suhaan @Mosher @Vilander
  16. Team for 4th odi Rohit Dhawan Kohli Rahul Jadhav Pant Jadeja Kuldeep Bumrah Khaleel Umesh.
  17. India will be aiming to reassert their continental supremacy while an injury-hit Bangladesh will hope to shrug off stage fright when the two sides square off in the grand finale of the Asia Cup here Friday. A passionate Bangladesh turned out to be the party-poopers on Wednesday as they wrecked the prospects of an India-Pakistan summit clash with a gutsy performance despite losing key players to injury. On paper, India will remain overwhelming favourites to win the tournament for a record seventh time while Bangladesh will be hoping to be third-time lucky in a summit clash. India Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Manish Pandey, Siddarth Kaul, KL Rahul, Deepak Chahar. Bangla Tigers Masrafe Bin Mortaza (captain), Mohammad Mithun, Litton Kumar Das, Mushfiqur Rahim, Ariful Haque, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Nazmul Islam Apu, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Abu Haider Rony, Imrul Kayes, Soumya Sarkar.
  18. The two rivals will square off once again, this time with much higher stakes. In their second Super Four contest, India will be hoping for another W to continue their perfect run against a Pakistan side that is yet to showcase their best. Teams (From): India: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed, Siddharth Kaul, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar Pakistan: Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Shan Masood, Sarfraz Ahmed(captain), Shoaib Malik, Haris Sohail, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Junaid Khan, Usman Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Asif Ali, Mohammad Amir.

  21. It was the year 2015 when after a lot of failures we were seeing the light of hope again in the form of " The big 3". We reached the quarters after so long and moved up 8 places from 61 to 52 and it was looking like Indian basketball "the sleeping giant" is ready to wake up and dominant the Asia and make presence in the world. Fast forward to 2018: It's been a while since the Big 3 played together and BFI banned the star player Amjyot Singh and we moved down nine places to 62. There is just glimpses of potential and that's it. We are the chokers of 4th quarter and that seeped into junior team too and it's all dark again. I want the fellow basketball enthusiast to join this thread and discuss about basketball in India.
  22. Having made a commendable comeback from the brink of a series defeat, India will look to increase their stranglehold on hosts England to draw parity when the two teams square off for the fourth Test India: Virat Kohli (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant (wk), Karun Nair, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Hanuma Vihari, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah. England: Joe Root (C), Alastair Cook, Keaton Jennings, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Oliver Pope, Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, Sam Curran, James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes, Ben Stokes, James Vince.
  23. Is Ravichandran Ashwin the best choice to replace Kohli as captain in Tests? If not, then who?
  24. The Indian cricket team would expect its floundering batsmen to take more responsibility in pursuit of a series-levelling victory in the second Test against England, starting on Thursday at Lords. Squads India: Virat Kohli (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Rishabh Pant, Karun Nair, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah. England: Joe Root (c), Alastair Cook, Keaton Jennings, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Oliver Pope, Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, Jamie Porter, Sam Curran, James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes.

    https://www.google.co.in/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk/sport/cricket/ollie-pope-england-india-second-test-lords-cricket-india-a8481636.html%3famp It may also be that Pope takes Dawid Malan’s place at No4, which would be an extraordinary induction. No England batsman has made his Test debut at that position in almost 20 years, since Michael Vaughan took on South Africa in 1999, the famous Wanderers Test in which England were 2 for 4 before Vaughan launched a dogged rearguard that portended the golden career to come.
