Tillakaratne Dilshan Tillakaratne Dilshan led the way for Sri Lanka in an 87-run hammering of England in the final one-day international in Colombo on Tuesday. The last encounter in this seven-match series was billed as a fond farewell to experienced duo Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene. The former was playing his final ODI in his home country, while for Jayawardene it was his last match of any description in Sri Lanka. Yet both were outshone by Dilshan, who, in his 300th ODI appearance, struck 101 in the hosts’ total of 302-6, and then took 3-37 from 10 overs as Sri Lanka wrapped up a 5-2 series victory. Jayawardene and Sangakkara both made starts without going on to get the big score the home crowd yearned for, before Dinesh Chandimal and Thisara Perera made half-centuries to boost Sri Lanka’s total As England toiled in their reply, Joe Root continued his fine form in th ...
Fast bowler Steven Finn has urged England to adapt to Sri Lankan conditions in order to salvage their one-day international campaign.The hosts carry a 2-0 lead into Wednesday's third ODI in Hambantota, where the reserve day on Thursday could come into play with Sri Lanka's rainy season once again expected to be a factor. A blistering century by Moeen Ali and 65 from Ravi Bopara saw England make a good fist of chasing down 317-6 in the opener to the seven-match rubber in Colombo. Finn returned from injury to bolster the tourists' attack at the same ground on Saturday but there was little for them to work with as only Bopara passed 50 in a paltry effort of 185 all out. In a match nominally reduced to 45 overs per-side - England fell two short of using their allocation - Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene sauntered to unbeaten scores of 67 and 77 respectively with more than 10 overs to spare, leaving under-pressure captain Alastair Cook and his team with plenty to ponder as next year's World Cup in Aus ...
Sri Lanka canter to 2-0 series lead England presented Sri Lanka with the sort of run chase that Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene could have supervised in their sleep. It was all so predictable that they might have batted with servants holding sun shades. A single there, sir; would you like to take more runs there perhaps? All politely accepted with eight wickets and more than ten overs to spare.
We want to keep our focus and play it for Mahela Jayawardene, says Angelo Mathews

Making their way back to the dressing room as the drizzle intensified, Pakistan's players must have wondered how on earth they lost the Test match after scoring 451 in the first innings. Whether it was their Test-match rustiness or an outcome of over-caution in their second innings, Pakistan simply didn't maintain their standard of play over five days. Against a team as buoyant as Mathews' Sri Lanka, you cannot afford to do that. Over the following days, Pakistan's spirits were further dampened by news of Saeed Ajmal being reported for a suspect action. It is a cliche that Pakistan are at their most dangerous when they have their backs to the wall, but Misbah-ul-Haq's team will have to ...
Kumar Sangakkara breaks one Bradman record, nears second Sri Lankan batsman Kumar Sangakkara struck his 10th double hundred here Saturday, surpassing the nine amassed by West Indian Brian Lara and puts him two behind the great Don Bradman. However, the left-hander managed to break Australian's 66-year-old record for most scores of 190 plus. The Sri Lankan captain beat Bradman's scores of 190 and above, registering his 13th en route to his 10th double. Sangakkara's faultless 221 saw Sri Lanka reach 533 for nine in their first innings in reply to Pakistan's 451 and by stumps the visitors lost a wicket for four runs in their second knock on day four of the first cricket Test at the Galle International Stadium. Sangakkara had completed his 37th Test hundred Friday. Following is the list of top 10 double century makers in Tests: Don Bradman (Australia) 12 Kumar Sangakkara (Sri Lanka) 10 Brian Lara (West Indies) 9 Wally Hammond (England) 7 Mahela Jayawardene (Sri Lanka) 7 Marvan Atapattu (Sri Lanka) 6 Virender ...

Sri Lanka v South Africa, 2nd Test, SSC, 4th day A captain's sacrifice for the SL family Andrew Fidel Fernando at the SSC July 27, 2014 "We are like a family" Sri Lanka's captain Angelo Mathews likes to say this when asked about the mood in his camp. Sometimes, you can almost hear the room cringe in unison. The camaraderie in the dressing room is obvious, but you wonder what makes Mathews use the word "family". Do they accidentally use each other's toothbrushes on tour? Does Rangana Herath borrow Mathews' car without permission and return it with the petrol gauge on empty? Do Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene stumble back to the hotel late at night, throw up on the floor, and blame it on Dilruwan Perera? Sri Lankan cricket is almost a throwback to the amateur era, with its bare bones backroom staff, resplendently outdated domestic system, and the genuine warmth and approachability of its top players. Nowhere was this more apparent than on the recent tour of England. But even so, it is still a hard-e ...

Cricketec new update Mahela Jayawardene resigns from Test Cricket
Sri Lanka v South Africa, 2nd ODI, Pallekele Unchanged Sri Lanka choose to bat The Report by Andrew Fidel Fernando July 9, 2014 Angelo Mathews won the toss and chose to bat in the second ODI in Pallekele on a surface that appeared to be suited to run-making. That the Pallekele pitch has sometimes been livelier in the evening may also have swayed Mathews' decision. Mathews had suggested Thisara Perera could come into the side if the surface looked particularly seam-friendly, but Sri Lanka chose to keep Ashan Priyanjan in an unchanged XI. South Africa also made no changes to their winning XI from Sunday. A victory at Pallekele would give them their first-ever ODI series victory in the country, and only their fourth win against Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka. Low cloud shrouded the hills around Pallekele Stadium, but rain is expected to hold off for the duration of the match. Sri Lanka: 1 Tillakaratne Dilshan, 2 Kusal Perera, 3 Kumar Sangakkara (wk), 4 Mahela Jayawardene, 5 Lahiru Thirimanne, 6 Angelo Mathews (capt) ...
Kumar Sangakarra and Angelo Mathews' names have been physically etched onto the Lord's Honours Board in the Away Dressing Room, to mark their centuries against England in the 1st Investec Test match. The milestone was one that Sangakarra was desperate to achieve having failed in his previous three Test matches at Lord's to score a century on the famous Ground. The 36-year-old hit 147 in the first innings of the England v Sri Lanka Investec Test match to join fellow Sri Lanka great and his close friend Mahela Jayawardene on the Honours Boards. Jayawardene having scored centuries in 2002 and 2006 at the Home of Cricket. During the same innings Sri Lanka captain Mathews also passed the landmark with his gutsy 102. Meanwhile, England's Joe Root got his name on the Honours Board in the Home Dressing Room for the second time in his career, his 200 not out following on from 180 against Australia during the Ashes Series last year. Fellow Yorkshireman Gary Ballance also made it onto the Board with his maiden Test ...
See the start of a new era in Test Cricket for England, as Alastair Cook's men take on a Sri Lanka team boasting all-time greats Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene.
Sri Lanka beat England by six wickets to win ODI series Birmingham: Sri Lanka swept to a six-wicket victory over England at Edgbaston on Tuesday, sealing a 3-2 victory in their one-day international series. Lahiru Thirimanne scored an unbeaten 60 and Mahela Jayawardene added 53 as the tourists reached 222 for 4 in reply to England's 219 all out in the decider of the five-match series. Earlier, Sachithra Senanayake angered the crowd by controversially running out Jos Buttler. Senanayake ran him out at the non-striker's end as he backed up out of his ground, albeit after twice warning him in his previous over for pinching yards. England, who led twice in the series, were unchanged from the side which lost by seven runs at Lord's on Saturday. Alastair Cook scored his first ODI half-century, with 56 off 85 balls, before England were bowled out with nearly two overs to spare. In reply, the tourists held their nerve, courtesy of the decisive fourth-wicket stand of 98 by Jayawardene and Thirimanne to take victor ...
England v Sri Lanka, 5th ODI, Edgbaston SL claim series amid Senanayake controversy The Report by Alan Gardner June 3, 2014 Sri Lanka 222 for 4 (Thirimanne 60*, Jayawardene 53) beat England 219 (Cook 54, Malinga 3-50) by six wickets Anyone who thought that Sachithra Senanayake being reported to the ICC for a suspect bowling action might be a cue for Sri Lanka to excuse him from duty, and the added attention it would bring, did not reckon with the player himself. Figures of 1 for 36, including the wicket of England's top-scorer, Alastair Cook, were just one thread of Sri Lanka's series-clinching six-wicket win but, by running out Jos Buttler while the batsman was backing up, Senanayake ensured that the narrative would be wound around him. Mahela Jayawardene and Lahiru Thirimanne scored half-centuries as Sri Lanka kept cool in an atmosphere that was simultaneously heated and damp. England's bowlers, in particular James Tredwell and James Anderson, managed to ratchet up the asking rate but some business-like ...
Well done boys ! .. Well said Mahela about Jos Buttler run out incident "We gave him a fair chance,. "Twice. Before the first warning, we told the umpires that he was taking too much of a lead and then he was warned again. We had to do that, because they kept doing it. "We analysed our game after Lord's. They took 22 twos in the last 12 overs. Ravi Bopara and him ran riot. And most of the time they were taking starts that are not legal by the written laws. We just wanted to make sure we got a fair chance. We warned them and we warned the umpires, but they didn't listen to us, so we had to take the right steps. "We always try to play in the right spirit, but if the other team is not playing in the right spirit and not going with the law, then unfortunately we had to take the law into our hands. It was the third time. It is fair enough, I think. We all need to play by the rules. "If the other sides are not going by the rules, then they're not playing by the spirit, so what can you do?" - Mahela Jayawardene

Written by bunpeiris Sri Lanka's Skills, Wiles & Guile Honest Overwhelm India 6th April 2012. Sri Lankan Cricket Team, which has consistently been losing finalists in One day International World Cups & T20 World Cups, since winning the One day International Champions in 1996 under the captaincy of indomitable Arjuna Ranatunge at Lahore, finally triumphed over India, with great death over bowling skills coupled with wiles & laced with honest guile to win T20 World Cup at Dhaka, in a fitting tribute to Kumar Sangakkara & Mahela Jayawardene, who retires from T20.

Legends Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene were playing their last game of the shorter format and they finished their T20 career on a high, both playing instrumental roles in Sri Lanka's success. Congratulations Lion Cricket.. have a great day
wht a performance by Kumar Sangakkara !!! & also tremendous captaincy by Lasith Malinga !!! we will miss Mahela Jayawardene & Kumara Sangakkara pair in T20I !!! & the happiest thing is " Indian Cricket Team Baassshhh khaise !!! "
tribute to Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene in their last matches...They deserved it, honestly..
Well, when Sachin Tendulkar decided to retire and play his last World Cup India Won, when Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene decided to retire from T20 format and played their last T20 World Cup (WOW) Srilanka won, so my point is: i think it's high time for Shakib Al Hasan to retire now :P
It was a perfect farewell for Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene.! hats off guys ..!! True cricket lovers (without any borders), will be missing such a two humble classy touching personalities in the WT20 arena.
The rule is simple, the better team always wins. Sri Lanka played better cricket than Team India today and hence they are the 2014 Champions - It's as simple as that. Outstanding bowling by Sri Lanka, especially at the death. They executed their plans very well. Hard Luck to Team India, they played awesome cricket throughout, but unfortunately couldn't continue their winning streak. Virat Kohli was awesome as always for Team India; and Kumar Sangakkara performed when his team needed it the most. What a great farewell to two amazing international cricketers "Mahela Jayawardene & Kumar Sangakkara" Back to the game, Finally Sri Lanka won a World T20 Cup well deserved! Congrats Sri Lanka!

A perfect farewell gift to the legends of the game,Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara "They have served Sri Lankan cricket for a long time through all formats...Sri Lanka will miss their presence in the dressing room"
It turned out to be a 'fitting finale' for the two retiring legends of Sri Lankan cricket as Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara certainly made it a 'farewell to remember' as the champions ended their T20 careers with a memorable triumph.Well Played Sri Lanka! They all deserved it! and the BONUS awaiting them when they arrive in Sri Lanka!
U cannot expect a team 2 win all the major tournaments of ICC...though India played well but Sri Lanka truly deserved it for tonight...

Great win for Sri Lanka and what a wonderful send-off for their legends, Mahela Jayawardene & Kumar Sangakkara. Thoroughly deserved.
World of T20Cricket would definitely miss the duo of Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene. Dilshan was a great entertainer too. What great stars!! Hard luck India! You were brilliant throughout the tournament!
So England hosted WT20 2009 and won the next in 2010. WI hosted it in 2010, won in 2012. SL hosted 2012, won 2014. Bangladesh you are next! and Respect to the legends Mahela Jayawardene & Kumar Sangakkara...god wanted them to get the WC...well said Darren Sammy :D :D

Kevin Pietersen, Shahid Afridi, Mahela Jayawardene and Daniel Vettori are among the big names set to be drafted...
Lets shout out for New Zealand and Brendon McCullum for the beautiful win against Netherlands. McCullum made a history by making wonderful score 2000 runs and he becomes the first player to hold this massive record. He has scored 600 more than the second highest , Mahela Jayawardene. McCullum's 65 is his 15th fifty-plus score(13 fifties, 2 hundreds), and which is also a record. Chris Gayle is behind him with 12. NETH 151/4 NZ 152/4 New Zealand beat Netherlands by 6 wickets with a 6 balls remaining. Best wishes to NZ. Suwal South Korea
New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum, en route to his 45-ball 65 that helped the Kiwis seal the deal against the Netherlands in their chase of 152 in the ongoing T20 World Cup, became the first batsman in T20 internationals to reach the milestone of 2000 runs. He now has 2044 runs. Mahela Jayawardene, with 1444 runs, is a distant second. This 32-year-old right-handed bastman, who is known for his hard hitting skills, has always been remarkably consistent in the shortest format of the game, which is in stark contrast to his performances in ODIs and Tests. It has to be noted, though, that ever since shunning the wicket-keeping duty and becoming the national captain recently, he has shown a great improvement in the other formats, too. McCullum, who has a career strike-rate of 136.26, reached this milestone in 67 matches at an impressive average of 36.50. Not only this, he has also hit the most number of fours (192) and sixes (85) in T20 internationals, besides being the first and only cricketer to hit two ce ...
A victory For the Students Protest:- Shame For Srilankan Players Sri Lankan players seem to be the biggest losers in this auction with seven players going unsold. There were no takers for Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews, veteran batsman Mahela Jayawardene ,Tillakaratne Dilshan, Angelo Mathews, Ajanta Mendis and Kusal Perera. Thanks to the effort taken by the students in all 7 protests against Srilankan players And special thanks to the friends who sent the mail petition to the sponsors of the IPL Franchises. it seems one singala player has been already put on hold in the squad, Our next protest should me strong enough to remove him completely from the squad and make the Sri Lankan Boycott completely possible.
Angelo Mathews: I am sure Mahela Jayawardene can always stage a comeback. He is a big match player.
MSD records. 1)unbeaten 183 off 145 balls, an innings described in Wisden Almanack (2006). The innings set various records including the highest Individual score in ODI cricket in the second innings later bettered by shane watson 2)He broke Adam Gilchrist's record of 172 for the highest score made by a wicket keeper. 3)The innings set the record for the most number of runs scored in boundaries (120 – 15×4; 10×6) breaking the record held by Saeed Anwar. However this was later broken by Herschelle Gibbs (126 runs in boundaries – 21×4; 7×6) against Australia during his knock of 175. 4)The score of 183* equalled Ganguly's innings during the 1999 Cricket World Cup as the highest individual score against Sri Lanka. 5)Among Indian batsmen who have played more than 50 matches, Dhoni has the highest average. 6)Dhoni's batting average is also the highest amongst wicketkeepers in ODIs. 7)In June 2007, Dhoni(139*) and Mahela Jayawardene(107) set a new world record for the sixth wicket partnership of 218 runs ...

Younis, Misbah centuries spur Pakistan to 327-4 Pakistan rode on centuries by Younis Khan and captain Misbah-ul-Haq to finish the second day of the first Test on a healthy 327-4 and 123-run lead against Sri Lanka on Wednesday. Khan hit 19 fours and a six in his 23rd Test century, an unblemished 136 off 198 balls, before he was bowled off an inside edge off Shaminda Eranga (2-63). Misbah ground out an unbeaten 105 off 250 balls with 13 fours and will resume the third day with Asad Shafiq unbeaten on 12. Misbah's and Khan's 218-run stand has placed Sri Lanka in a tight corner as their bowlers struggled to contain Pakistan's two most experienced batsmen. Sri Lanka twice missed dismissing Misbah on 69 when Mahela Jayawardene dropped a sitter, and on 76 they didn't go for a TV referral when fast bowler Suranga Lakmal (1-84) could have earned an lbw verdict after onfield umpire Richard Kettleborough of England turned down a strong appeal. Sri Lanka started off well by claiming two wickets inside the first *** . ...
Cricket: Ton-up Younis, Misbah defy Sri Lanka in first Test AFP - 56 mins ago Younis Khan hit a brilliant hundred and Misbah-ul Haq a chancy fifty as Pakistan established a lead on the second day of the first Test in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. Younis was unbeaten on 103 for his 23rd hundred and Misbah was 74 not out as Pakistan reached 251-3 at tea in reply to Sri Lanka's first innings total of 204. Pakistan now lead by 47 runs and with Younis and Misbah sharing 168 for the unbroken fourth wicket stand, Pakistan look for a match-winning edge. Younis hit spinner Rangana Herath for his 13th boundary to complete his hundred, taking just 47 balls for his second fifty runs. He has also hit a six. Younis equalled Javed Miandad's record of 23 centuries, the third highest for Pakistan in the list topped by Inzamam-ul Haq (25) and Mohammad Yousuf (24). Misbah had luck on his side as he was dropped by Mahela Jayawardene when on 69, as he tried to paddle sweep Herath and the fielder moving to leg-slip failed to hold an ...
First Test: Pakistan have won the toss and elected to field first. Ahmad Shahzad and Bilawal Bhatti making their debuts. Mahela Jayawardene and Rangana Herath back in the Sri Lankan line up.
Pakistan v Sri Lanka, 1st Test, Abu Dhabi Pakistan hold aces against under-prepared SL Big Picture Appetisers devoured, entrées done, the tour arrives at its main course with fans' appetites well whetted. Five of the seven limited-overs matches have been good contests, and the cricket has largely been absorbing. Sri Lanka have won fewer matches, but they are now boosted by the return of their primary Test match-winner in Rangana Herath, and their best batsman against spin in Mahela Jayawardene. Still, in the UAE, Pakistan hold the pre-series aces. Sri Lanka have not only had no Tests since March, they have also foregone the practice matches that are so often the bedrock of successful foreign expeditions. Three clear days between the last ODI and the first day of the Test only exacerbate their challenge. Pakistan are also at a clear advantage in another area - though they are missing Mohammad Irfan for this series, their pace attack is venomous where Sri Lanka's is only doughty. No bowler in Sri Lanka's 1 ...
Akila Dhananjaya is a right arm off- break bowler.He is said to have seven variations, including the leg-break, googly, carrom ball, doosra and his stock off-spinner that had impressed national team captain Mahela Jayawardene so much in the nets as to make Jayawardene request him to be fast-tracked into the national squad. Dhananjaya had at that point played no first-class, List A, T20 or even U-19 cricket. This in turn led to controversy as his selection was questioned by the media on the basis of a net performance. He was selected to play for Wayamba United in the inaugural Sri Lanka Premier League. In only his second match for the franchise, he took 3-18 against Nagenahira Nagas, consistently disturbing the batsmen with his flight, googly and other variations.This in turn led to a place in the final squad for the 2012 ICC World Twenty20. In the 2013 IPL auctions, Dananjaya was sold to the Chennai Super Kings for his base price of $20,000.
Kumar Sangakkara sangakarra Pic – Humble in victory and gracious in defeat, is what characterises Kumar Sangakkara. Often perceived as the gentleman of One Day Internationals Kumar has amassed a mammoth 11798 runs with an average of 40. Inzamam-ul-Haq inzamam Pic – Hand-picked by Pakistan’s legendary captain Imran Khan, Inzamam-ul-Haq had everyone laughing when he first stepped into world cricket. However the laughter was gone when he started hitting the ball out of the stands. He wasn’t athletic nor was he fast, but he was what he was – brute force. In all he had scored over 11739 runs at an average of 39.52. Jacques Kallis kallis Pic – Touted as one of the best all-rounders in world cricket ever, Jacques Kallis was an enigma in the form of a middle order batsman. He has played 321 matches despite being a pace bowler (noteworthy for pace bowlers have shorter lifespans) and has scored 11498 runs till his retirement in 2012 Mahela Jayawardene jayawardan ...
Q6. with any of Sri Lankan Cricket player eg Mahela Jayawardene to ask why they've such weird names!
SL are missing Mahela Jayawardene, best batsman in slow conditions.
If the T20s are an indication where Pakistan and Sri Lanka stand in limited-overs cricket, fans may be in for one of the more absorbing, unpredictable bilateral ties in the year. There was everything from top- order audacity, to spin-induced collapses, outstanding catching and a lower-order resurgence, all delivered with the spark that has defined matches between these sides in recent years. Already well-matched in Asian conditions, both teams also approach the ODIs in similar states of confidence. Pakistan had been the more match-ready side before the tour began, but Sri Lanka had their top three humming last Friday , and frontline bowlers Lasith Malinga and Sachithra Senanayake have also established form, with four wickets apiece. For Pakistan, Shahid Afridi has married sense to his savagery with the bat, Saeed Ajmal remained menacing, even as his team-mates fell to pieces in the second match. The top order need look only as far back as the South Africa series to discover good vibes of their own. How Sr ...

A record that has remained unequaled. *His 156 catches in ODIs was a world record, until Mahela Jayawardene of SriLanka broke it. *Is part of an exclusive club of batsman, who made centuries in each of their debut and last test matches.

Q: You must have been thrilled by the opportunity to use DRS. Judging by how well that's gone for you, do you think that might change the Indian view of it in the future? Dhoni: You'll have to wait and watch and see. Still I don't like it. Two wickets gone, one of Kevin Pietersen, the other of Mahela Jayawardene, so there's no good reason why I should like it. . To those of u, who say Dhoni shows sportsman spirit. Here is my proof mahela:-As the 24th over began, an adequately warmed-up and limber Dhoni angled in to bowl his military medium. The first ball was a 123.8 kmph length delivery that Jayawardene defended. Second ball, Dhoni got it to jag back, Jayawardene was rapped on the pads. Umpire Aleem Dar raised his finger after a long, hard look. Dhoni and the team celebrated. Jayawardene challenged the decision almost immediately. On the giant screen, hot spot showed an inside edge and the decision was reversed. Pieterson:- Nine balls into his spell they almost had a triumph. Kevin Pietersen:- played and ...

Match Preview I: Pakistan vs Srilanka 2nd Twenty20: Pakistan v Sri Lanka, 2nd T20, Dubai Match facts Friday, December 13, 2013 Start time 2000 local (1600 GMT) Pakistan's shot at No. 1 ranking Mohammad Hafeez had been confident his side would head into the tour with more momentum, and Pakistan's victory in the first Twenty20 proved him correct. Pakistan's senior bowlers were sharp, quick-witted and collected, and their batsmen unruffled, as they chased 146 with five balls to spare. Sri Lanka may be the top-ranked Twenty20 side for now, but Pakistan were clearly the better-drilled and more fluent outfit, after their tough series against South Africa. Pakistan will also take pleasure in the versatility of their XI from the first match. Left-arm seamer Usman Khan had debuted as a frontline bowler on Wednesday, but after a wayward first over, he was not required to bowl any more, as the spin-bowling allrounders delivered their quotas cheaply. Similarly, 22-year-old Bilawal Bhatti produced a crucial 10 runs fr ...

Sachin Tendulkar was the last remaining player who made his Test debut in the 1980s. You're right about Shivnarine Chanderpaul- he made his Test debut in March 1994, and reached 150 caps in Mumbai just as Tendulkar reached 200. Only six other men who have played Tests this year made their debuts in the 1990s, and one of those (Ray Price) has also announced his retirement. The others are Jacques Kallis (Test debut in 1995-96), Mahela Jayawardene and Harbhajan Singh (both 1997-98), and Rangana Herath and Tillakaratne Dilshan (both 1999-2000).
'It's important to demonstrate leadership with responsibility' November 13, 2013 Comments: 12 | Login via | Text size: A | A The full text of the speech delivered by Anil Kumble at the Pataudi Memorial Lecture in Mumbai on November 13, 2013. Anil Kumble delivered the second annual Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi lecture © BCCI Enlarge In 1990, as a teenager, I took my first steps in international cricket and was eager for encouragement and a kind word in the cricketing world. I came across a comment from an accomplished Indian cricketer and a respected leader of men. I quote: "This lad, I don't see him winning Test matches for India, either at home or abroad. He rarely turns the ball. At best he can be restrictive." The assessment came from Mr. Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi. Two decades of international cricket and 619 Test wickets later, it is indeed a great honour and privilege to address this august gathering. It was my misfortune that I never had a chance to confront Pataudi on his comment, but I am confident th . ...

SACHIN - THE GREATEST OF ALL My greatest nightmare is finally here! The reality of life without Sachin Tendulkar is here upon me! The day when a man playing his monumental 200th test, a feat others can only dream of and that feat too becomes insignificant, no one is talking about this historical achievement that can happen only once because that happens to be his last test of his illustrious carrier! That is Sachin Tendulkar !!! One could ask why Sachin Tendulkar ? There are some of the best cricketers who have played in this era, the likes of Rahul Dravid, Shane Warne, Jaques Kallis, Wasim Akram, Brian Lara, Muralitharan, Ricky Ponting, Mahela Jayawardene and Aravinda De Silva! Because most of them haven't played to the expectation of a billion people! Most of them played in a fantastic team that was not the case with Sachin for a decade! My earliest memory of Sachin was when he scored that brilliant 137 against Srilanka in 96 worldcup! One of the most memorable innings will be of course that double agai ...

Kyle Mills says its a fresh wicket and with the rain around, Duckworth-Lewis will come into play and we'd rather chase. Its an opportunity for the youngsters to stand up, especially away from home in Sri Lanka, and hopefully set things up for the home season and the World Cup later. We've got Grant Elliot at No. 4 and hopefully he can replicate what Ross does for us and things go well New Zealand, apart from having to brace against the absences of seniors like Ross Taylor and Brendon McCullum, are 5-16 in Sri Lanka. Even worse, since 2004, they are yet to win an ODI game here. Razmi from Saudi: "I prefer to give youngesters to open the innings & dilshan go to 5th down to play in the 30th overs power play. India's success was on dhoni playing in later order & youngesters trying their luck in the top order." 2.18pmWeather-wise, things look very good in Hambantota.

Dr.Lalith Kotalavela : Swindlers list By Eagle Eye Priding themselves as philanthropists, espousing the word of God, the very name Deshamanya Dr. Lalith Kotelawala and Lady Dr. Sicille Kotelawala evoked respect, trust and above all a sense of security. Which is why 9054 people in this country, trusted the duo with millions,in some cases tens of millions ofrupees in life savings.Perhaps part of those millions belonging to some depositors was black money. Perhaps some of them invested their monies to evade paying tax to the government. Perhaps they were just plain greedy or a mixture of both. After all, why did they not invest the monies in a reputable bank? Whatever the case, they were confident their savings/loot would be safe in the hands of two human beings held in the highest esteem.

The issue with Ishant The fact that his wrist is not behind the ball and the seam doesn't come out upright speak volumes Let me start with a disclaimer: I've been a huge Ishant Sharma fan, right from the day I saw him bowl in a Ranji Trophy one-dayer years ago. It was rare to see an Indian fast bowler as tall as that. He also had the perfect high-arm action and a solid wrist behind the ball. His height offered him extra bounce off the surface, and the ball almost always came out of his hand with the seam upright, which allowed him immense control. Such was his mastery over his line that we at Delhi could give him a 7-2 off-side field and the chances were he would not go for a single boundary off the legs throughout the day. He was barely out of his teens then, but it was quite evident that this lad would almost certainly play for the country, for he had potential and promise.

'Master of charity walk' Botham ready for 160 km challenge in Sri Lanka: Former England great Ian Botham has started a 160 km charity walk in Sri Lanka and Allan Border, Steve Waugh, Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara and Muttiah Muralitharan are among cricketers who will accompany him at various points of the walk.
MS Dhoni's brilliant 145-ball 183* not only overshadowed Kumar Sangakkara's sublime unbeaten century but also made a mockery of the target of 299 set by Sri Lanka at Jaipur on 31 October 2005. Sangakkara added 155 runs in 23.3 overs for the third wicket with Mahela Jayawardene, and then a late cameo by Farveez Maharoof helped the visitors get to a competitive total. India's chase got off to a terrible start when Chaminda Vaas dismissed Sachin Tendulkar in the first over; but then Dhoni took centre stage with his assault and hit 15 boundaries and 10 sixes in his match-winning knock. Brief Scores: Sri Lanka 298-4 (Kumar Sangakkara 138*, Mahela Jayawardene 71, Farveez Maharoof 33*, Ajit Agarkar 2-62) Lost to India 303-4 in 46.1 overs (MS Dhoni 183*, Virender Sehwag 39, Muttiah Muralitharan 2-46).

27-10-2000 Muttiah Muralitharan took India apart with 7 for 30 - the best bowling in ODIs at the time - as Sri Lanka eased home in a dress rehearsal for the Champions Trophy final in Sharjah. Marvan Atapattu and Mahela Jayawardene both made centuries in a total of 294 for 5 and then, with India 99 for 2, Murali got to work - his seven wickets came for 23 runs in 50 balls. India played him better in the final two days later, when he only managed 3 for 6, but it didn't stop them being hammered by 245 runs.

Concern over Test Cricket’s future 30 September By Jenny Bernstein Johannesburg – When 21 legendary Test Cricket captains gathered in London recently, the future of the longest format of the game was highlighted as a common area of concern. “During many of our informal conversations, it became clear we all shared the same worries when it came to matters of cricket,” former South African Test captain Ali Bacher said on Monday. “Concerns were raised about the long-term future of Test Cricket and I was delighted to hear that even current international stars – Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara from Sri Lanka – expressed their feelings on the subject. “With only four Tests scheduled for Sri Lanka this year, including one which begins on December 31, they both felt strongly that the lure of the dollar in Twenty20 cricket should not override the future of Test Cricket.” The group of former Test captains, which included the esteemed Sir Garfield Sobers and Sunil Gavaskar among them, were b ...
