One of the new faces that the Indian selectors have picked for Sri Lanka ODIs is Siddharth Kaul. The Right arm medium fast bowler who plays for Punjab n first class Cricket and for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League has been a consistent performer in domestic circuit in all forms of the game and has finally been able to catch the eyes of the national selectors.

Kaul has made a lot of improvements in his bowling of late. He was earlier known only for his bowling with the new ball as he didn’t have a lot of pace to make an impact with the old ball too. But in the last 12 to 18 months, he has added a couple of yards to his pace and has started bowling different lengths.

KL Rahul is going to be brought back into action straightaway after his recovery from illness in spite of the decent performances of the two Indian openers who had played in Galle.

One of the openers Shikhar Dhawan had actually been named the player of the match there, while the other one Abhinav Mukund had also scored 80 odd in the second innings.

So it was believed that it would be quite tough for Virat and the Indian team management to drop any of them going ahead in the series.

But, Virat while addressing the press prior to the start of the Colombo test stressed that Rahul’s consistency in the past couldn’t be overlooked.

Virat reckons that it’s important to give a player a sense of security about his position in the XI especially if he has done well over a period of time.

If somebody loses form and subsequently loses his position, that’s okay, but, he shouldn’t lose his position because of external factors like injuries or illness. Continue reading 'KL Rahul back in action after Illness Recovery'»

Anil Kumble says Weather can Destroy game in Caribbean

Anil Kumble does not believe that the weather prediction should influence the game plan of a team at all as there is no guarantee for the prediction to be true and if the game plan is based on that, the team might end up having to pay a big cost for it.

Kumble says the prediction for the third day in Jamaica said that it would be pelting down throughout the morning and the afternoon and hardly any play would be possible. But, it turned out to be fairly sunny and a number of overs were bowled. So, how can one be sure that the prediction for the following day would be bang on?

As per Kumble, India was aiming to get as much ahead of the score of the Caribbean team as possible and that’s why, the declaration came late and if the heavens had not opened up at a wrong time on Tuesday when the hosts were in tatters having lost four of the top order players, the momentum could have led to India taking some more wickets and finishing the game off on that very day.

Indian Cricket fraternity Unhappy with Steve’s Let Off by ICC

The Indian Cricket fraternity is totally unhappy with the fact that Steve Smith has been let go for something which perhaps deserved a ban of a couple of matches.

Smith had defended himself on the DRS controversy saying that his action was not a part of any planning. It was just a momentary thing which happened in a flow and he realized almost instantly thereafter that it was wrong, but, it was not deliberate for sure.

His opposite number Virat Kohli was, however, not ready to accept that clarification and with his statements, he gave the impression that he thought Smith was lying in front of the media.

As per Virat, he could have believed Smith if he had not seen Australia do something like that before, but, he had actually noted the same thing during his batting as well whenever there was a close umpiring decision and he had even made the umpires aware of his suspicion. And then seeing it the next day again, it’s now hard for him to agree that it would have happened in the heat of the moment for Smith.

The third day of the fourth test, played at the Wankhede Stadium last week Saturday, saw Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara, share a century stand as India started out strong in reply to England’s total of 400 on Friday, the second day of the fourth test played at the Wankhede Stadium.

After Lokesh Rahul had fallen following an opening stand of 39 with Vijay, the right handed pair added 107 runs for the second wicket.

From both ends after seven overs, Alastair Cook, England’s captain introduced spin which saw a considerable turn on over from Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali.

In his 24, Rahul went on to hit four crisp boundaries, before Moeen, off spinner, breached his defences to bowl him.

Twice, Vijay mis-hit Rashid, with the ball landing safely beyond the reach of the fielders on the two occasions. And over the long-off boundary, the opener hit the leg spinner for six. Continue reading 'INDIA IN STRONG START TO FIRST INNINGS IN BID TO REPLY ENGLAND’S 400'»
