  1. It's the IPL 10 quarterfinal! A win for RPS takes them to No. 2! A win for KXIP takes them to No. 4. A no result takes RPS to No. 3!

As far as his bowling is concerned Ishant Sharma said that he prefers to keep things simple and back his strengths. (Source: BCCI) On the eve of Kings XI Punjab’s crucial match against Rising Pune Supergiant in Pune, the men in red are leaving no stone unturned to ensure a victory and subsequently have shot at qualifying for the playoffs. At the end of a lengthy net session pacer, Ishant Sharma spoke to the indianexpress.com and stated the importance of the upcoming tie against RPS and most importantly revealed why he doesn’t want to be known as a Test match specialist. While Ishant’s record has been comparatively better in the longer format of the game, the 28-year-old lanky pacer isn’t happy with the tag of being a specialist in Test cricket. “Yes, I know that I haven’t done well in T20’s but that doesn’t mean I want to play only Test cricket. In my earlier interviews, I had meant to say it is one of my strengths but it was interpreted in another way. I don’t want to be branded as a Test specialist. If you see my ODI record it’s not a bad record. So it’s nothing like I only wish to play T20’s or ODI or Test.” “But this is the bad thing of in our country – If you have one bad series or if you have not performed well in 2-4 games, then you are branded as a bowler suitable only for one format. But I think it all depends on how you feel about yourself rather than what others think about you. I always keep believing in myself and that is important for me. It doesn’t bother me with what assumptions are being made. If you do well then people will praise you and if you don’t you have to face criticism. That is the part and parcel of a being professional sportsman.” As far as his bowling is concerned Ishant said that he prefers to keep things simple and back his strengths. “The most important thing is to keep focus and execute the plans that you have made against the batsman,” he added. As far as variations are concerned Ishant revealed that sometimes along with Mohit Sharma he keeps talking about it. “But in this format, you don’t have much time to develop those skills as everything happens so fast. So it is difficult to develop skills quickly. However, we have been trying to add new things in every game.” Commenting on his role as a senior pacer in the squad he said,” I don’t see too much into it. But there is a responsibility with the experience that I have. On the field, we (bowlers) keep reminding each other of the plans that we have made against the batsman and try to execute them.” Meanwhile, when asked as to what galvanised KXIP to change their fortunes and bring about a brilliant run of form, he said,”The big reason behind our success is that we played as a team. We are not dependent on any particular player and did well in the crunch moments of the match which brought about positive results.” “I just hope we repeat the same against RPS”, he concluded. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- While I respect Ishant the test bowler and his contribution in away test matches in the recent past, Ishant Sharma rates himself too high of himself and goes nowhere. I hope KXIP does not pick him up and not hand over the match to Pune on a platter (going by his recent IPL form at least). Not even Dinda from their side may be sufficient to make up for it.
  3. Discuss : Punjab Vs Gujarat

    On a roll with back-to-back wins, a resurgent Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will look to go all guns blazing against down and out Gujarat Lions (GL) here tomorrow (May 7) to keep their IPL 2017 play-off hopes alive. Squads Kings XI Punjab: Glenn Maxwell (captain), David Miller, Manan Vohra, Hashim Amla, Shaun Marsh, Darren Sammy, Wriddhiman Saha (wicketkeeper), Nikhil Naik, Ishant Sharma, Armaan Jaffer, Martin Guptill, Eoin Morgan, Rinku Singh, Sandeep Sharma, Arman Jaffer, Anureet Singh, Mohit Sharma, KC Cariappa, Pradeep Sahu, Swapnil Singh, T Natrajan, Matt Henry, Varun Aaron, Axar Patel, Marcus Stoinis, Gurkeerat Mann, Rahul Tewatia. Gujarat Lions: Suresh Raina (captain), Akshadeep Nath, Basil Thampi, Shubham Agarwal, Dwayne Smith, Chirag Suri, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Manpreet Gony, Ishan Kishan, Ravindra Jadeja, Shadab Jakati, Dinesh Karthik (wicketkeeper), Dhaval Kulkarni, Praveen Kumar, Brandon McCullum, Pradeep Sangwan, Jason Roy, Jaydev Shah, Shelly Shaurya, Nathusingh, Tejas Baroka and Andrew Tye.
  4. Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) would be hoping that their Bengaluru trip does not end up with them again going lower down the order. The team has recovered from a pretty delicate situation to give itself an outside chance of making it to the IPL 2017 knockout stages and they would be very keen to make sure that they don't trip over the down and out Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), who have little to play for barring pride. However, they could still be party poopers for some teams. With 8 points from 9 games, KXIP are placed fifth while RCB after 8 defeats from 11 games are at the bottom of the heap. For KXIP, a win will keep them in contention with another four matches after Friday's encounter. KXIP won in a canter crushing Delhi Daredevils by 10 wickets in their previous game. For the Glenn Maxwell-led side, Hashim Amla with 315 runs, including a century has been in good form. Martin Guptill also looked in ominous touch during his 27-ball half-century. While KXIP batting needs to fire in unison, they will be hoping that pacers Sandeep Sharma and Varun Aaron do a repeat act of their performance against the Daredevils. They would also pin hopes on left-arm spinner Axar Patel, who has taken 10 wickets from nine matches. Squads: Kings XI Punjab: Glenn Maxwell (capt), David Miller, Manan Vohra, Hashim Amla, Shaun Marsh, Darren Sammy, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Nikhil Naik, Ishant Sharma, Armaan Jaffer, Martin Guptill, Eoin Morgan, Rinku Singh, Sandeep Sharma, Arman Jaffer, Anureet Singh, Mohit Sharma, KC Cariappa, Pradeep Sahu, Swapnil Singh, T Natrajan, Matt Henry, Varun Aaron, Axar Patel, Marcus Stoinis, Gurkeerat Mann, Rahul Tewatia. Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli (capt), AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle, Yuzvendra Chahal, Harshal Patel, Mandeep Singh, Adam Milne, Vishnu Vinod, Sreenath Arvind, Kedar Jadhav (wk), Shane Watson, Stuart Binny, Samuel Badree, Iqbal Abdulla, Travis Head, Sachin Baby, Avesh Khan, Tabraiz Shamsi, Tymal Mills, Aniket Chaudhary, Praveen Dubey, Billy Stanlake.
