  1. Bangladesh won the toss and are batting first 102/2 in 22.1 overs Pretty good start.
  2. After receiving an eight-wicket thrashing in the second Twenty20 International , India will aim for a better show when they take on Australia in their third and final cricket match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Squads: India: Virat Kohli (captain), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Ashish Nehra, Lokesh Rahul, Axar Patel. Australia: David Warner (captain), Moises Henriques, Aaron Finch, Tim Paine (wicket-keeper), Daniel Christian, Glenn Maxwell, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Travis Head, Adam Zampa, Andrew Tye, Kane Richardson.
  3. India vs Australia T20I series will continue with the second T20 international in Guwahati. The match offers an opportunity for Australia to bounce back in the series and level it and for India, it is a chance to wrap up the series by winning the second consecutive game. India (probable) 1 Rohit Sharma, 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Virat Kohli (capt), 4 Manish Pandey, 5 Kedar Jadhav, 6 MS Dhoni (wk), 7 Hardik Pandya, 8 Kuldeep Yadav, 9 Yuzvendra Chahal, 10 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 11 Jasprit Bumrah Australia (probable) 1 David Warner (capt), 2 Aaron Finch, 3 Travis Head, 4 Moises Henriques/Glenn Maxwell, 5 Marcus Stoinis, 6 Dan Christian, 7 Tim Paine (wk), 8 Nathan Coulter-Nile, 9 Adam Zampa/ Andrew Tye, 10 Kane Richardson, 11 Jason Behrendorff
  4. BD win toss and elect to field. Defensive move, but sensible, given the shakiness in their batting away from home. Toyger fans are howling about Mushy's mistake, but I think that's because they over-estimate their own team. Captain knows better. I like the look of this pace bowler Roy - he went for a few runs already, but he looks the part. Don't know if he can put up consistent spells, but hits the deck. Hard to win tests if you are just going to depend on opponents making mistakes though. BD need to control the run flow, and then try and build a bit of pressure.

  7. Ind vs Aus, Indore Starts at 01:30 PM IST (08:00 GMT), Sep 24 Will the real Australia please stand up? David Warner, why so mellow? Two games in and the visitors resemble a team that would much rather have cooled its collective heels in preparation for the Ashes, if there was an option to send 15 doppelgangers to play this ODI series. Who knows? Maybe that's what they did. For, in two indifferent performances at Chennai and Kolkata, whenever the tourists have been under a modicum of pressure, the batsmen have caved and let India run all over them. Hardly an Australian thing to do. There'll have to be a considerable reversal at the Holkar Stadium on Sunday if the series is not to be decided after just three games. And that'll need to come from the top of the batting order. Training in Indore, the visitors can already see a few more chinks of light, literally and metaphorically. The sight of Aaron Finch hustling between the wickets in the nets for a quick three should come as a soothing balm for a troubled middle-order that has lacked both depth and confidence to face Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal from a 100 for 3 situation. There are other positives. Marcus Stoinis has laid out a template in the calm art of playing spin that others would do well to follow. Also, Steven Smith was left truly miffed by the end of the Kolkata game, which can hardly be a good sign for opposition. India have been dominant without always purring along like a high-spec engine of a super car they desire to be. Runs have come at the top and the lower middle-order, but they will once again begin casting an introspective eye on their No. 4 - Manish Pandey, the bridge between the two. For all the coming together of idealogies the IPL's brought about, an Australia tour of India still remains something of a culture shock. All talk in the Indian camp has been about the desire to inject oomph to their spin strength. 'We're fine with fast bowlers, thank you very much' Australia have said, before gloriously jettisoning Adam Zampa to the bench in a classic act of nonconformist behavior. The visitors are simply playing by their strenghts, which is never a bad thing to do. To bring the series back to life, the batsmen will also need to play and not just turn up to the game. When: India vs Australia, 3rd ODI, September 24, 13:30 IST; 08:00 GMT Where: Holkar Stadium, Indore What to expect: Seasonal rains lashed Indore earlier in the week but the forecast for Sunday is all clear, with just a 10% chance of showers on the morning before the match. In a (un) welcome departure from Kolkata and Chennai, the curator has promised 'lots of runs' and slightly less purchase for spinners. The last ODI in Indore may have seen a low-scorer but the curators of Madhya Pradesh know a thing or two about feeding the double-hundred hungry. Team News: India With a series win at stake, India will steer clear of making changes unless enforced by injury. Manish Pandey has had two unconvincing games in the series at a time when he could have put the hammer down and sealed his spot for good. So KL Rahul remains in contention, although India will offer Pandey at least another game. The bowling combination - a slinger, a swinger, two wrist spinners and an all-rounder - will continue to keep Ravindra Jadeja out although India will begin to consider the cushion of a sixth bowling option (Kedar Jadhav) on a good batting day. Probable XI: Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal Australia "He brings a lot of aggression at the top of the batting order," said Warner without definitely confirming the return of Finch. If the burly opener shakes off his calf niggle to get into the playing XI, that would resign Hilton Cartwright to the bench. Since his maiden ODI hundred against Pakistan in January, Matthew Wade has been dismissed for single-figure scores in five of the six innings, with his scores reading 35, 5, 8, 2, 9 and 2. Peter Handscomb practiced with the 'keeping gloves under the watchful eyes of Brad Haddin and could be a possible inclusion. Probable XI: David Warner, Aaron Finch, Steven Smith (c), Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade/Peter Handscomb (wk), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kane Richardson Did you know? - Virat Kohli is 41 runs away from scoring 2000 runs as skipper. He has 1959 runs from 34 innings and has six innings in hand to break AB de Villiers's record of fastest to 2000 runs as skipper. - India have won all their four ODIs at the Holkar Stadium - two against England and one each against West Indies and South Africa. - A win in the third ODI would equal India's longest winning streak - nine ODIs between 14 Nov 2008 and 05 Feb 2009. Kohli now has had three separate streaks of eight wins each. What they said: "When we became world champions, we were playing with a different team. There was a different dynamic. The team has undergone some chopping and changing. We have to find a stable team and one which works out best for the 2019 World Cup." - David Warner reckoned that the current Australian ODI team was still a work in progress. "They [Kuldeep and Chahal] are getting better day by day. But they are not taking things for granted, not taking things lightly, so that's a good thing." - Ajinkya Rahane jumps in on the wrist spinner bandwagon. Teams: India (From): Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli(c), Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni(w), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, Lokesh Rahul, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav Australia (From): Aaron Finch, David Warner, Steven Smith(c), Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade(w), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kane Richardson, James Faulkner, Peter Handscomb, Adam Zampa, Hilton Cartwright http://m.cricbuzz.com/cricket-commentary/18858/ind-vs-aus-3rd-odi-australia-tour-of-india-2017
  8. Date: Sep 17, 2017 Start Time: 13:30 IST | 08:00 GMT | 13:30 Local Venue: MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai last A long home season of limited overs cricket looms ahead for Virat and his boys as they welcome the mighty Aussies for 5 ODIs and 3 T20Is. .Australia are without pace spearheads Mitchell Starc & Josh Hazlewood due to injury. With Aaron Finch ruled out for the first few games, Peter Handscomb, who batted out of his skin in the Chittagong Test against Bangladesh, has been named as Finch's cover . The Indian team selectors haven't announced a replacement for Shikhar Dhawan for the first three ODIs, who has requested leave to look after his unwell wife. It's widely believed that Ajinkya Rahane would partner Rohit Sharma at the top of the order but with Manish Pandey making a fair claim for a spot in the middle order and Kedar Jadhav cementing his spot as a utility man; it remains to be seen who makes the final XI on Sunday. Would India make the mistake to underestimate their opponents? One thing's certain that with Virat at the helm, he'll not be taking anything for granted. Squad Australia ODI squad: Steve Smith (c), David Warner, Ashton Agar, Hilton Cartwright, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Patrick Cummins, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, Adam Zampa. India squad (first three ODIs): Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Ajinkya Rahane, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami.

  11. Eng vs WI, London Starts at 03:30 PM IST (10:00 GMT), Sep 07 Preview It has been an English summer of entertaining Test cricket which has, at times, been of the very highest quality but at others has been dramatically less so. The second Test at Headingley was an illustration: a fine match with plenty of drama and fluctuations of fortune and some high class performances but one which was also potted with plenty of average cricket throughout. That the Test match season finishes with a series decider is, though, in keeping with the entertaining nature of the games this summer. With a resurgent Windies looking to cause one of the biggest Test upsets in recent history by winning the series and with England looking to go into a vital Ashes tour this winter on the back of two series victories, this is high stakes cricket. England's defeat in Leeds was further evidence that they remain a frustratingly inconsistent work in progress. After three consecutive Test wins, two against South Africa and one against Windies at Edgbaston, it was a sobering loss. Captain Joe Root and coach Trevor Bayliss both lamented their side's poor showing with the bat in the first innings at Headingley and it is the batting which exercises the selectors most ahead of the Ashes. Mark Stoneman and Dawid Malan both scored half-centuries in Leeds but could do with another commanding score in this match to give them confidence ahead of Australia and it is shaping up to be an important match for Tom Westley, who has just 19 runs in the series. All three of these players have their qualities but Test match cricket is a demanding place and they are running out of time to establish themselves before the Ashes. It could be a special match for James Anderson who needs just three wickets to reach 500 in Test cricket. Bayliss was unhappy with England's performance with the ball in the second Test too, thinking his team had bowled too short, but Anderson and Stuart Broad very rarely get things wrong two games in a row. Toby Roland-Jones, who replaces Chris Woakes in the final eleven, has taken 14 wickets in his three Tests to date and will add more control than Woakes was able to provide. Windies have not won a Test series overseas against anyone other than Bangladesh and Zimbabwe since 1994/95, when they beat New Zealand, so they will lack for no motivation at Lord's. Their performance at Headingley was all the more impressive given their three day capitulation at Edgbaston but, as with England, consistency is their issue. Stuart Law, Windies' coach, hopes that the victory in Leeds will give his players the confidence that they belong at Test level which will in turn help deliver improved performances. Despite the excellence of Shai Hope and Kraigg Brathwaite in the previous match, there are areas for Windies to improve. Their fielding at Headingley was poor, with a raft of dropped catches, and their bowlers struggled to maintain pressure for long periods. Shannon Gabriel's pace discomforted England's batsmen in the previous match but Kemar Roach and Jason Holder need to back him up with more consistency and Devendra Bishoo could do with some more bowling too. Two inconsistent teams, a number of high-class players alongside some with plenty to prove and a winner takes all game at Lord's. As a season finale goes, it is set up perfectly. When: Thursday September 7, 2017. 11:00am start Where: Lord's Cricket Ground, London. What to expect: The Lord's pitch had a green tinge the day before the game but is likely to be good for batting on the first two days. Earlier this season against South Africa, the pitch deteriorated sharply as the game wore on although more grass on the pitch for this match should mean it holds together for longer. The weather is set to be mixed with some rain forecast. Team News: England England have confirmed that Tony Roland-Jones will replace Chris Woakes in the only change from the team that played at Headingley. That means no place for Hampshire's young leg-spinner Mason Crane despite it being the original intention of England's management for him to play here. Windies Windies will name their team at the toss tomorrow. The main area of consideration for the tourists is whether leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo will keep his place in the team or another seamer, perhaps Miguel Cummins, will be selected. Given Bishoo's lack of bowling in Leeds and the green tinge of the Lord's surface, Cummins may be favourite. Stats/Trivia The last time West Indies won a series in England was in 1988. Only three members of the current squad were born then - Devendra Bishoo, Kemar Roach and Shannon Gabriel. The last time West Indies won two successive Tests in an away series was way back in January 1993 in Adelaide and Perth to clinch the series after trailing 0-1. James Anderson has taken 81 wickets at Lord's. If he gets three more wickets in this Test, he will reach the landmark of 500 wickets and he will also have the most records by a fast bowler at a particular venue. Joe Root needs one more score of fifty or more to break AB de Villiers record of scoring 50 or more in 12 consecutive Tests. Teams: Windies (From): Kraigg Brathwaite, Kieran Powell, Devendra Bishoo, Kyle Hope, Shai Hope, Roston Chase, Jermaine Blackwood, Shane Dowrich(w), Jason Holder(c), Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel, Shimron Hetmyer, Alzarri Joseph, Raymon Reifer, Miguel Cummins England (From): Alastair Cook, Mark Stoneman, Tom Westley, Joe Root(c), Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow(w), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Mason Crane, Toby Roland-Jones
  12. a good toss to win from BD 155/5 currently.
  13. India would aim to cap off their super successful Sri Lanka tour with another ruthless victory in the one-off T20 International here tomorrow. Any other result than India's resounding win looks highly unlikely tomorrow, consdering the visitors' rampaging run in the preceding Test and ODI series, where they whitewashed the hosts 3-0 and 5-0 respectively. The game provides India an opportunity to fine-tune team combination ahead of the upcoming T20 home series against Australia and New Zealand. In total, India would play nine T20 Teams: India: India: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Ajinkya Rahane, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur. Sri Lanka: Upul Tharanga (c), Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella, Dilshan Munaweera, Dasun Shanaka, Milinda Siriwardana, Wanindu Hasaranga, Akila Dananjay, Jeffrey Vandersay, Isuru Udana, Seekkuge Prasanna, Thisara Perera, Lasith Malinga, Suranga Lakmal, Vikum Sanjaya.
  14. Another Dead Rubber match. All the bench warmers who haven't featured in the first 3 ODIs are likely to get a game... SL on the other hand have more trouble ahead. No Chandimal. No Kapugedera. Mallinga to lead the side. More to Follow....
  15. After comfortable win over Sri lanka in the previous match ,India will look to dominate Sri Lanka in the 2nd Odi . Weather Teams: India: Virat Kohli (capt), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Ajinkya Rahane, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur.

  16. India vs Srilanka , 5 match ODI series 1st ODI at Dambulla. Start time. : 1430 local (0900GMT) Telecast : Sony Six, Sony Six HD and Sony Ten 3. Sony Liv app will have live streaming . Weather : Expected to be cloudy, but fine, with temperatures reaching a high of around 31C during the day.Some late evening showers predicted ( source : Cricinfo ) Pitch : With a batting-friendly wicket on offer, 300-plus scores have been achieved twice at this venue this year. It shouldn't be any different for the opening game of the five-match series starting on Sunday. Showers are forecast late in the afternoon (Cricbuzz) MATCH PREVIEW : Going into the five-match series, starting on Sunday in Dambulla, Sri Lanka have plenty to play for. Upul Tharanga captained Sri Lanka have face to regain after being beaten by Zimbabwe and then smashed by India in the Test series. Additionally, they need two wins at least to qualify automatically for the 2019 World Cup. For India have a a squad brimming with abundance and confidence. Some of the Test regulars have left and the the MSK Prasad-led selection panel also decided to rest R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami. But that doesn't mean Sri Lanka can breathe easy as the ones coming in are able replacements, capable of winning matches on their own. In Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, India have two quality seam options while Hardik Pandya can also pitch in. The spin department is exciting, with the presence of Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel and if this doesn't appear formidable for the hosts, wait for the batting unit. Rohit Sharma has returned to the ODI squad after being rested for the West Indies ODIs while KL Rahul and Manish Pandey are also back in the squad, having missed the Champions Trophy and the Caribbean tour due to injuries. With the presence of Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane and Kedar Jadhav, along with Pandya and MS Dhoni, captain Virat Kohli has plenty of options, leaving him and the team management with a happy headache. With a rotation policy being proposed by the selection panel to build a core for the World Cup in 2019, the ones presented with an opportunity in this series will be keen to make it count and cement their spots. Predicted XIs : India : Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), KL Rahul, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah Srilanka : 1 Niroshan Dickwella (wk), 2 Danushka Gunathilaka, 3 Kusal Mendis, 4 Upul Tharanga (capt.), 5 Angelo Mathews, 6 Chamara Kapugedara, 7 Wanindu Hasaranga, 8 Thisara Perera, 9 Akila Dananjaya, 10 Lasith Malinga, 11 Dushmantha Chameera P.S.
