  1. It is a World Cup year in the T20I format and perhaps a five-match series is designed precisely to help the teams work out various combinations; for New Zealand, who are missing a number of first-choice players, the incentive to completely change their approach in the next match even goes a little beyond that. At 0-2 against a good team, there is little to lose. A change in venue, from Auckland to Hamilton, should also do them some good. It is unlikely India will tinker with either department, but with the batting line-up stepping up so impressively, they might be tempted to forego Shardul Thakur's batting ability at No. 8 for the pace of Navdeep Saini.
  2. Virat Kohli expects the Guwahati pitch to be a high-scorer. Although there has been rain in the past week, the weather is expected to be good.SQUAD SQUAD Sri Lanka (possible): 1 Danushka Gunathilaka, 2 Oshada Fernando, 3 Avishka Fernando, 4 Bhanuka Rajapaksa, 5 Kusal Perera (wk), 6 Angelo Mathews, 7 Dasun Shanaka, 8 Isuru Udana, 9 Wanindu Hasaranga, 10 Lasith Malinga (capt), 11 Lahiru Kumara/Kasun Rajitha India: 1 Shikhar Dhawan, 2 KL Rahul, 3 Virat Kohli (capt), 4 Shreyas Iyer, 5 Rishabh Pant (wk), 6 Shivam Dube, 7 Ravindra Jadeja, 8 Washington Sundar, 9 Kuldeep Yadav/ Yuzvendra Chahal, Shardul Thakur, 11 Jasprit Bumrah
  3. This is the second successive bilateral series at home in which India have come to the deciding ODI with the series still even. The last time it happened, against Australia, India ended up losing. India have had injury issues with their bowling attack, but the batting wears an extremely powerful look. Shreyas Iyer has settled in as a No. 4 who can explode if coming in late, or rebuild if early wickets have fallen. With Rishabh Pant and Kedar Jadhav to follow, Iyer has become the link between an irresistible top three and a power-packed finish. India (probable) 1 Rohit Sharma, 2 KL Rahul, 3 Virat Kohli (capt), 4 Shreyas Iyer, 5 Rishabh Pant (wk), 6 Kedar Jadhav, 7 Ravindra Jadeja, 8 Kuldeep Yadav, 9 Mohammed Shami, 10 Navdeep Saini, 11 Shardul Thakur/Yuzvendra Chahal West Indies (probable) 1 Ewin Lewis, 2 Shai Hope (wk), 3 Shimron Hetmyer, 4 Roston Chase, 5 Nicholas Pooran, 6 Kieron Pollard (capt), 7 Jason Holder, 8 Keemo Paul, 9 Alzarri Joseph, 10 Khary Pierre, 11 Sheldon Cottrell
  4. It's been over 15 years since India last lost two consecutive bilateral ODI series at home. They have also never lost five straight ODIs in India. But both those things may happen if they lose to West Indies today India : 1 Rohit Sharma, 2 KL Rahul, 3 Virat Kohli (capt), 4 Shreyas Iyer, 5 Kedar Jadhav, 6 Rishabh Pant (wk), 7 Shivam Dube, 8 Ravindra Jadeja/Yuzvendra Chahal, 9 Deepak Chahar, 10 Kuldeep Yadav, 11 Mohammad Shami West Indies : 1 Shai Hope, 2 Evin Lewis/Sunil Ambris, 3 Shimron Hetmyer, 4 Nicholas Pooran (wk), 5 Roston Chase, 6 Kieron Pollard (capt), 7 Jason Holder, 8 Keemo Paul, 9 Hayden Walsh Jr, 10 Alzarri Joseph, 11 Sheldon Cottrell
  5. When India take the field against West Indies in the first ODI at Chepauk on Sunday, foremost among the concerns for India will be the notorious middle-order situation. It was one of the reasons for India's downfall in the World Cup in England six months ago and hasn't yet been satisfactorily solved. The brilliance of Rohit Sharma and skipper Virat Kohli at the top of the order has been such that it seldom provides a chance for those following them to face enough balls and build confidence. Squad India: 1 KL Rahul, 2 Rohit Sharma, 3 Virat Kohli (capt), 4 Shreyas Iyer, 5 Rishabh Pant (wk), 6 Kedar Jadhav, 7 Shivam Dube, 8 Deepak Chahar, 9 Kuldeep Yadav, 10 Yuzvendra Chahal, 11 Mohammed Shami West Indies: 1 Sunil Ambris, 2 Shai Hope, 3 Roston Chase, 4 Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), 6 Kieron Pollard, 7 Romario Shephard, 8 Kharry Pierre, 9 Hayden Walsh, 10 Keemo Paul, 11 Alzarri Joseph
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.

  10. #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.
  11. Ranchi @sscomp32 My team:- Hitman Dhawan Kohli Shankar + Rayudu Dhoni Jadhav Jaddu kuldeep shami bumrah
  12. Hope dhoni & middle leader gets another opportunity to save our struggling top order . Spotlight on rayudu as well.
  13. 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.
  14. Expecting another cameo from MSD Meanwhile our haterz reaction when they find dhoni is still integral part of our T20 team
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. Probable Team:- Hitman Dhawan Kohli Rayudu Dhoni DK Jaddu Bhuvi Kuldeep Khaleel Shami i think thalai is back @Stan AF
  18. 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.
