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.

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'»

The IPL organizers had introduced a new award in the tournament this year, the glam shot award and that went to David Warner.

A sum of one Million Indian rupees also came with the award for the Hyderabad captain.

Out of all the games played in the season, some of the shots, were identified as the glam shots by the commentators and were put on the official website of IPL for public voting.

The shot, which eventually won the award, was played by Warner in a game in the Round Robin phase.

The left hander had taken a delivery from half a foot outside his off stick and with a whip much similar to the helicopter shot, had got it to go flying into the advertising boards at the cow corner fence.

Another shot that might have been close to that of Warner in terms of the no. of votes was the straight drive of Krunal Pandya, the Mumbai Indian player.

That drive of Krunal did not come off a full delivery. He was actually not even on the front foot, but, the ball rose so nicely to him that he just extended his back foot defence a little further and took his wrists a little higher for the shot to have some elevation.
