  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.
  2. 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
  3. 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. #PlayBold Preview by Cricbuzz : What: RCB v MI, March 28, 20:00 IST, 1430 GMT Where: M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru What to expect: First up, a warm day and slightly cooler evening with no weather hindrance. The bowlers will have to bring their 'A' game with the track set to assist the batsmen. In the last T20I played at the venue, Glenn Maxwell cantered to a century against India in a game that saw the bowlers struggling because of the dew. Expect teams to chase keeping that in mind. Team news: RCB: Despite the disappointing performance against Chennai Super Kings, the home side will more or less stick with the same playing XI. Probable XI: Parthiv Patel (wk), Virat Kohli (c), Moeen Ali, AB de Villiers, Shimron Hetmyer, Shivam Dube, Colin de Grandhomme, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal, Umesh Yadav, Mohammad Siraj. MI: Lasith Malinga will join the squad on Thursday and is highly unlikely to play the contest. Barring any last minute issues with Bumrah, the side should go in with the same XI that took on DC. Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Yuvraj Singh, Kieran Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Ben Cutting, Mitchell McClenaghan, Rasikh Salam, Jasprit Bumrah.
  6. Ranchi @sscomp32 My team:- Hitman Dhawan Kohli Shankar + Rayudu Dhoni Jadhav Jaddu kuldeep shami bumrah
  7. Hope dhoni & middle leader gets another opportunity to save our struggling top order . Spotlight on rayudu as well.
  8. Pitch and conditions The previous T20I here between England and New Zealand in February 2018 produced 386 runs, with Munro blasting an 18-ball half-century, his third sub-20-ball fifty in T20Is. Need you say more? The dimensions are slightly bigger than those at Eden Park, but a flat pitch and a lightning outfield should make it another run fest. Stats and trivia Rohit has hit 102 sixes in T20Is. Only Chris Gayle (103) and Martin Guptill (103) have more. Friday's win was India's first in four T20Is in New Zealand.
  9. Expecting another cameo from MSD Meanwhile our haterz reaction when they find dhoni is still integral part of our T20 team
  10. Note to top order:- If the ball swings , defend wisely for the first 7/8 overs. We can always compensate the low RR in the end. thala will be back .. to all the haterz esp @mancalledsting
  11. PS:- Match starts one hour earlier than usual. Wish list:- Replace rayudu with jadhav Hope rayudu adds less spice in his biriyani for our team Important Stats:- Dhoni bhais average in this series is bradmanesque Another 50/60 runs , he will be certain to receive MoS. For Dhoni Fans:- thala is thinking he is back Message to anti-Dhoni brigade:- This is how dhoni fans are handling anti-dhoni brigade now @test fan @raki05 @speedheat @Jimmy Cliff @philcric @Laaloo @The Dark Horse @DHONI_FANN
  12. Probable Team:- Hitman Dhawan Kohli Rayudu Dhoni DK Jaddu Bhuvi Kuldeep Khaleel Shami i think thalai is back @Stan AF
  13. Same XI or make a change or two ? If Shaw is fit, he should replace Vijay. Vihari in place of Rohit? If it's a flat drop in pitch, may be play both Ash and Jaddu along with 3 pacers to lessen their load and save their energies for the subsequent tests.
  14. Australia 1 Aaron Finch, 2 Marcus Harris, 3 Usman Khawaja, 4 Shaun Marsh, 5 Travis Head, 6 Pete Handscomb, 7 Tim Paine (capt & wk), 8 Mitchell Starc, 9 Pat Cummins, 10 Nathan Lyon, 11 Josh Hazlewood India 1 KL Rahul, 1 M Vijay, 3 Cheteshwar Pujara, 4 Virat Kohli (capt), 5 Ajinkya Rahane, 6 Rohit Sharma/Hanuma Vihari, 7 Rishabh Pant (wk), 8 R Ashwin, 9 Mohammed Shami, 10 Ishant Sharma, 11 Jasprit Bumrah Fair enough XIs for both teams with 4 frontline bowlers and no all-rounders. Pitch seems to be bowler friendly. Also, 1st test, teams tend to be slightly on the conservative side wrt batting. For India the 3 pacers selected is largely a straight forward choice. Ash as the spinner is also a fair pick at least for the 1st test, with 5 left hand batsmen in the Aus top 8. Ash generally is quite good against lefties around the wicket, bowling within the stumps line, some turning a bit and some going straight. He usually struggles abroad against righties where the line of attack has to be outside the off stump. Hope we start off well on Day 1 and take it from there. Good luck to Team India and the ICFers. We need some test wins after the lost opportunities in SA and Eng.
  15. 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
  16. Cricket Australia XI (From): D Arcy Short, Max Bryant, Sam Whiteman(c), Jake Carder, Harry Nielsen(w), Param Uppal, Jonathan Merlo, Jackson Coleman, Harry Conway, Daniel Fallins, David Grant, Aaron Hardie India (From): Lokesh Rahul, Prithvi Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli(c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant(w), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Rohit Sharma, Murali Vijay, Hanuma Vihari, Parthiv Patel, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah
  17. Starc is back , but we dont have rayudu to nullify him In the spotlight It was the below-par performance of three of India's top four which cost them in Brisbane and they didn't have the chance to make amends in Melbourne. KL Rahul is currently slotted in at No. 3, ahead of Virat Kohli, which puts increasing onus on him not to eat up deliveries. His 13 off 12 balls in a hefty chase was therefore far from ideal with the world's finest white-ball batsman behind.
  18. What could be the likely eleven of India for this game.Whether to go in with two wristys or one, whether krunal will play as a 5th bowler, Virat comes in in place of whom etc Rohit Dhawan Virat Rahul Pant DK Krunal Bhuvi Kuldeep Khaleel Bumrah
