  1. Md Siraj has quickly emerge as one of the most promising fast bowlers in the country. Bowling raw pace is his passion. The twenty-two-year-old found his calling in playing cricket. In his first full Ranji Trophy season itself, the bustling pace bowler has carved a niche for himself by becoming the third top wicket taking bowler at the end of the quarterfinal phase with 41 wickets.

    Making the series interesting

    Now we know why the team management selects has been in the team. To make the matches more interesting. Due to our middle order of Dhoni, Rayuddu, Manish, Karthik, Jadhav our odi matches are becoming interesting.In the final of the Asia Cup against Bangladesh the match went to last ball. Total paisa vassool. Shardul,Kaul, Chahar, Unadkat, are selected so that the matches doesn't become one sided, boring.Teams like Hong Kong,UAE , Bangladesh, Afghanistan should be encouraged to make records against them. If we select Rahul, Pant, Khaleel,Saini in the odi the matches will become onesided like the test match against Windies. The selector should select Odi squad for the 2nd test so likes of Braithwite,Dowrich,Chase can score & revive test in West Indies.
  3. 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
  4. 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.

    Ollie Pope

    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.
  6. India will announce their Test squad on Wednesday, for the Test series in England.
  7. 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/
  8. Wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha is set to be monitored by the BCCI's medical team for a finger injury that he picked up during the IPL
  9. So, finally Bang bros are showing improved performances in test arena too. Scoring a 513 in the first innings of test is no mean feat even if the conditions are conducive to batting. Granted they conceded a lead of 200 runs despite having such a massive score, they are fighting it out even in the second innings and are on their way for a well earned draw!!! ( even in their own home!) Keep it up Bangladesh and I hope this will inspire better performances from you in the future!

  13. A disheartened Sri Lanka will shrug off the recent disappointment to face visitors Zimbabwe in the only Test .

  15. The Indian Cricket Team is all set to embark upon a 50-day tour of Sri Lanka next month. Team India is scheduled to reach the Sri Lankan capital on July 19 and play a warm-up game in Colombo on either 21 or 22 July. Three Test matches are scheduled to be played at the Pallekele Stadium in Kandy (July 26 to 30), Galle (August 4 to 8) and in Colombo (SSC Grounds) from August 12 to 16. Also, the five One-Day Internationals will be played in Colombo (R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium), Dambulla (Rangiri Dambulla International Cricket Stadium), Pallekele International Cricket Stadium (two ODIs’) on August 20, August 24, August 27, August 30 and Colombo’s R. Premadasa Stadium on September 3 respectively. The lone T20I match of the series will be played at Colombo’s R. Premadasa Stadium on September 6.
  16. He leads from the front, Aus targetting him, wanted to bring him down ro win the test. He should have played even if he is 70 % %it. Show them he is made of steel balls. This is chickening out at a crucial time, will probably surrender them the BG trophy. Is Kohli a koLI (chicken in kannada)? Bata ..(as Nana Patekar says)
  17. What are the biggest positive from the long home test series
  18. Venue: M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore Time: 09:30 IST Weather: Cloudy with a maximum temperature of 31 degrees With expectations that the pitch in Bangalore will be flatter, will India still play three spinners? Jayant Yadav took two wickets in Pune, and if a spinner has to make way it will surely be him .Considering the total flop by India's batsmen, adding cover could be the way to go, in which case Karun Nair slots back for his first opportunity since he scored an unbeaten 303 against England in Chennai in December. The uncapped Hardik Pandya is the other candidate, considering he offers a handy medium-pace option. A wicketless Test also puts Ishant Sharma's place in doubt, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar likely to step in. Probable XI: 1 Murali Vijay, 2 KL Rahul, 3 Cheteshwar Pujara, 4 Virat Kohli (capt), 5 Ajinkya Rahane, 6 Wriddhiman Saha (wk), 7 R Ashwin, 8 Ravindra Jadeja, 9 Jayant Yadav/Hardik Pandya/Karun Nair, 10 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 11 Umesh Yadav Australia No major reason to tinker with that team after the colossal win, but Shaun Marsh's contributions of 16 and 20 make him a candidate for the bench considering it was a harsh call to drop Usman Khawaja for the last Test. The other Marsh, allrounder Mitchell, scored 4 and 31 and did not bowl ball in Pune, but will keep his place in order to maintain a balance. Probable XI: 1 David Warner, 2 Matt Renshaw, 3 Shaun Marsh/Usman Khawaja, 4 Steven Smith (capt), 5 Peter Hanscomb, 6 Mitchell Marsh/Glenn Maxwell, 7 Matthew Wade, 8 Mitchell Starc, 9 Steve O'Keefe, 10 Josh Hazlewood, 11 Nathan Lyon
