An amazing & bizarre series of Test cricket ends with India marching into the WTC finals

Ash

No one expected India with 6-7 of their main players having been injured to create history in Australia. But they proved everybody wrong in what would go down as one of the finest series of Test match cricket we all would have witnessed in a long time. Australia gave it their best, had a full-strength squad and barring the countless chances & opportunities they missed, the complete credit should go to the fearless and courageous Indian team under the cool …

Virender Sehwag – A Batsman Who Made Batting Look So Easy

Viru 1

A Look At Virender Sehwag Virender Sehwag or the ‘Nawab of Najafgarh’ as he’s fondly called was able to immediately bring joy when we walked out to bat. I clearly remember Virender Sehwag made his Test debut at Bloemfontein and here was a youngster facing up against Shaun Pollock, Makhaya Ntini, Matthew Hayward and Jacques Kallis on a pace friendly pitch and instead of getting buckled down and crumbling under pressure, Virender Sehwag played a late cut over the slips …

Breeding and Backing Youngsters Seems The Mantra For Success in IPL 2020

Breeding And Backing Youngsters

A lot of emphasis has been put on the experience and skill that players who have represented their countries bring to franchises across the IPL. But this season is vastly different from any other season. Experience does help, but what would make a huge difference is how well a team can breed youngsters and give them opportunities to perform. Every franchise is filled with cricketers who haven’t played competitive cricket for about six months heading into the IPL, especially the …

Test cricket returns with a hard fought contest

Test Cricket

Cricket and Test cricket returned after a 144-day gap owing to COVID-19 that continues to cause havoc across the globe. The prelude to the England-Windies Test series was something not too celebratory. The media glare and attention shifted to Michael Holding’s honest, emotional speech about the “Black Lives Matter” campaign and what that signifies for him. The return of cricket or test cricket was very uplifting as the match had all the elements that make for an excellent Test match. …

Sir Viv

There are cricketers who leave their imprint that would get talked about generations later. Sir Donald Bradman with an average of 99.94 remains the epitome of batsmanship till date. It was a proud moment for Indian cricket when Don Bradman himself in 2000-2001, stated that Sachin Tendulkar reminded him of himself in his heyday. You can’t bigger praise than that and Sachin did live up to those high words of praise. We have witnessed online or heard from others how …
