Records broken by AB de Villiers and South Africa against the West Indies in 2nd ODI
Remember the summer of 2013? India travelled to England for the Champions Trophy under an IPL spot-fixing cloud. The team wasn't expected to compete but Shikhar Dhawan had other ideas. He smacked a fluent 114 against South Africa and then followed it up with 102* against West Indies. That was followed by 48 against Pakistan and 68 versus Sri Lanka. Dhawan ended the tournament with 363 runs from five matches at an average of 90.75. India won the title and Dhawan was named Man of the Tournament. It looked like India had found a swashbuckling, free-hitting opener who could set-up and win games in foreign conditions. That now seems like a lifetime ago. Statistically, Dhawan's figures still look good. Over his last ten ODI innings, he has one hundred and four fifties and averages 57.55 - higher than his career-average of 43.59. But read beneath the top-layer of these figures and you will find a story dictated by conditions. In six innings at home, Dhawan has scored 387 runs at 64.50, with a hundred and three f ...

JOHANNESBURG: AB de Villiers hit the fastest century in one-day international history as South Africa overwhelmed the West Indies in the second one-day international at the Wanderers in Johannesburg on Sunday. De Villiers raced to his century off 31 balls - five balls fewer than the previous record - on the way to an astonishing 149 off 44 balls. With opening batsmen Hashim Amla and Rilee Rossouw also hitting centuries in a South African record first wicket stand, South Africa piled up a massive 439 for two. The West Indies were never likely to chase down a World Record target but managed a respectable 291 for seven to give South Africa a 148-run win and a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. The target was never likely to be within the reach of the West Indies, especially after big- hitting Chris Gayle was caught at deep midwicket off Morne Morkel for 19 in the fifth over. Dwayne Smith, caught off a Morkel no-ball in the first over when he had four, made 64 off 65 balls and Denesh Ramdin contributed 57 off ...

CENTURION, South Africa (CMC) — Unbeaten centuries from AB de Villiers and captain Hashim Amla squashed a brief flicker of resistance from West Indies, as South Africa dominated the opening day of the First Test here yesterday.Asked to bat in bowler friendly conditions at SuperSport Park, South Africa slumped to 57 for three just after the first hour, but recovered through the brilliance of de Villiers and Amla, who dominated the last two sessions to propel the hosts to 340 for three at the close.De Villiers stroked an attractive 141 not out and Amla, an unbeaten 131, two innings that snuffed the life out the Windies after they conjured up an enterprising period during the morning period which had hinted at something greater.The pair have so far added 283 for the fourth wicket — a record for South Africa.Impressive fast bowler Kemar Roach, the Windies’ best bowler so far with ...

Joshua Slocum, (born Feb. 20, 1844, Wilmot, Nova Scotia, Can.—died 1909/10, at sea), Canadian seaman and adventurer who was the first man in recorded history to sail around the world singlehandedly. Slocum joined the crew of a merchant vessel at 16 and from that time on spent most of his life at sea. In 1889 he wrote Voyage of the Liberdade about one of his passages and in 1894 Voyage of the Destroyer about another. In April 1895 he set sail from Boston in the 36-foot 9-inch (11.1-metre) Spray, an old fishing boat built about 1800 that he had rebuilt. He sailed alone, following a route that took him to Nova Scotia, the Azores, Gibraltar, South America, Samoa, Australia, South Africa, the West Indies, and finally, in June 1898, to Newport, R.I., to complete his circumnavigation. He had sailed 46,000 miles (74,000 km) in three years, two months, and two days. In 1899 he wrote Sailing Alone Around the World, which became a classic in the literature of the sea. In 1909 he set sail from New England in the S ...
Date: 21 August, 1927 The 4th Pan-African Congress was held in New York City, USA. The congress was sponsored by the American based African-American women's organisation, Circle for Peace and Foreign Relations. The congress was opened with 208 delegates signing "Lift Ev'ry Voice". Other delegates were attracted from the West Indies, Western Europe, Asia, South America, and from Africa, Nana Amoah III of the Gold Coast, Thorgie Sie of Liberia, and representatives of Sierra Leone and Nigeria. Following a lively debate, delegates took some resolutions and made demands. They firstly reaffirmed the manifesto of the previous congress. In the name of people of African ancestry, the congress reiterated the rights of Africans to land, suffrage, and education, and also put forward a new demand for "treatment as civilised men despite differences of birth, race or color." The participants condemned the United States' control of Haiti and White minority rule in South Africa; demanded genuine independence for Egypt; an ...

"Sri Lanka, with this win, have now won seven Test matches outside the subcontinent, excluding Tests in Zimbabwe. The margin of victory in this Test - 100 runs - is the narrowest in terms of runs for Sri Lanka in these countries. They have won five Tests by larger margins and another by 10 wickets. Three of these seven wins have come in England, two in New Zealand and one each in South Africa and West Indies. These seven wins have come in 57 Tests, which makes their win percentage 12.3%. India and Pakistan, the other subcontinental giants, have win percentages of 12.4% (22 wins in 177 Tests) and 21.4% (31 wins in 145 Tests) respectively in these conditions. The overall records of India and Sri Lanka, in terms of win percentages, are now quite similar." Cricinfo

This documentary on Cricket World Cup takes you through the magical journey starting from the heavy defeats against West Indies and South Africa. It covers the thought process of Imran Khan, Wasim Akram, Ramiz Raja and other prominent players from World Cup 1992. Imran Khan always believed that we would win it and we needed one good game to bounce back. This part 1 of the documentary also covers that game i.e. the encounter vs. Australia, which gave Pakistan the much needed confidence. Part 2:
SL beat West Indies, enter T20 final THURSDAY, 03 APRIL 2014 22:24 E-mail Print Sri Lanka defeated the West Indies by 27 runs on the Duckworth-Lewis method on Thursday to enter the World Twenty20 final in Dhaka. The West Indies, chasing Sri Lanka's 160-6, were 80-4 in 13.5 overs when a heavy downpour forced the match to be abandoned, with Marlon Samuels on 18 and Darren Sammy yet to score. Sri Lanka were declared winners of the rain-hit semi-final since the West Indies were 27 runs behind the D/L par score of 107. Sri Lanka await the winners of Friday's second semi-final between India and South Africa in Sunday's title clash. (AFP)

Shane Robert Watson (born 17 June 1981) is an Australian cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a right-handed fast medium bowler. He debuted for the Australian cricket team in 2002, playing his first One Day International against South Africa. While he has become a regular member of the one-day squad, Watson only reached his 50th Test Match for Australia in the fifth Ashes match in January 2014, having debuted against Pakistan at the Sydney Cricket Ground in January 2005. Despite being allocated to be Australia's designated Test all-rounder, injuries have often prevented him from claiming his position in the Test team. However, from the second half of 2009, Watson acted as Australian Test opening batsman, along with Simon Katich, but has since settled into the number three position. Watson was awarded the 2010[2] Allan Border Medal and again in 2011,[3] becoming the second player (after Ricky Ponting) to win back-to back Allan Border Medals. Watson's wife Lee, whom he married on 3 June 2010, is a Fo ...
The World Twenty20 steps up a gear Friday as cricket's top eight sides enter the fray, with Pakistan seeking a historic win against India in the second round's standout clash. Minnows of international cricket have been slogging it out in the expanded 16-nation tournament so far with two qualifying spots and a chance to join the big boys up for grabs from round one. In the Super-10 stage, Asian giants Pakistan and India will be joined in Group Two by the West Indies, Australia and one of the successful qualifiers. The other qualifier will join South Africa, Sri Lanka, England and New Zealand in Group One with two sides from each group advancing to the semi-finals. The identity of the two qualifiers from round one will be known just hours before Pakistan bid to defeat arch rivals India for the first time at the World Twenty20. "We beat India in the Asia Cup this month and this team looks good to make history," a confident Pakistani coach Moin Khan said ahead of the round-two opener in Dhaka. "But they must ...

"I lost weight but my batting suffered" : Nasir Jamshed as one of the most talented young left-handed opening batsmen from Pakistan at the moment, Nasir Jamshed made his international debut against Zimbabwe in an ODI in 2008, smashing 61 off just 48 deliveries which saw him win the Man of the Match award. In his second ODI, he hit 74 off 64 balls, becoming only the third Pakistani to make consecutive half centuries in their first and second international matches. A memorable first one day international century against India at the 2012 Asia Cup in March 2012, followed by back to back hundreds against the same opposition in India (2012/2013) raised hopes of a long and fruitful career but subsequent failures with the bat in his debut Test series against South Africa as well as lack-lustre performances in The Champions Trophy, ODI series against West Indies, Zimbabwe and South Africa in 2013 proved to be a major setback to his nascent career. Eventually, a Test average of 12.75 in 2 Test matches and an ODI a ...
An opening batsman and a more than decent off spinner, Mohammad Hafeez came into the Pakistan side after their early exit from the 2003 World Cup. He made a promising start to his Test career, scoring a half century on debut against Bangladesh and following it up with a century in the next match. However, his form in ODIs suffered a dip towards the end of the year, and he was left out of the Test side as well. Despite being dropped, Hafeez remained in the sidelines and continued to score heavily in the domestic circuit. He returned to the ODI squad in 2005 but did not impress with the bat. He returned to the Test squad in the Oval Test in 2006, and scored 95 runs, which helped him retain his spot for the home series against West Indies later that year. He did well against the West Indies, but consistent failures against South Africa in early 2007 made him lose his spot again. Hafeez had to wait for another 3 years before he returned to the side in the World T20 Championships, 2010. His form was poor as he ...
The Son of God, starts tomorrow: Relativity International, a division of Relativity Media, announced Thursday it has sold off rights to the biblical epic in more than 60 territories. The film is based on Mark Burnett and Roma Downey's hit television miniseries The Bible and chronicles the life of Jesus Christ. Son of God opens in the U.S. on Friday via 20th Century Fox.

The Coca-Cola South Africa under-19s got their ICC U19 World Cup campaign off to a flying start when they convincingly beat the West Indies by 94 runs at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Friday.   South Africa top the Group C log by virtue of a superior run rate to Zimbabwe, who beat Canada by six wickets.   South Africa did well to post a 198-run total after tough start. They lost two wickets in the first six overs when captain, Aiden Markram was dismissed by Ray Jordan for three in the second over, followed by Clyde Fortuin (4) in the sixth.     Jason Smith and Greg Oldfield brought calm to the innings, adding a valuable 65-run, third-wicket stand before the former was removed by Ramaal Lewis for 29. Oldfield departed for 38 two overs later (27.4) at the hands of the same bowler.   South Africa were 88/4 when Yaseen Valli came to the crease, and went on to make South Africa’s top individual score of 53 off 57 balls. His half-century came at a run a ball, but he lost three batting partne ...
Now that West Indies is on the mat and Sachin has probably played his last test innings, its time to tell you my very own Sachin story. Personally, I think Sachin was over the hill about two years back and ought to have retired. Moreover, I don't care for all this sentimental hype, and think that changing the entire cricketing calendar of India for a farewell in Wankhede against a sub-standard West Indies, is as soppy and contrived as a Karan Johar film. Sachin should have played against South Africa, in South Africa. That would have been a fitting farewell to an icon of the game, to his worldwide fan club, and not to the parochial lot in one part of the country. The game is bigger than any individual, and must go on. But this is not what I wanted to say; here is my Sachin story. Read this to the very end, please. In 2003, before the Cricket World Cup in South Africa, the Indian team led by Saurav Ganguly came to Bangalore for a conditioning camp at the Chinnaswami stadium. At that time, Ishaan Raghunanda ...

New Zealand, West Indies, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe have signed in favour of Big 3. Big 3 just one vote away from majority. They are trying their best to convince either Pakistan, Sri Lanka or South Africa to vote them. PCB chairman Zaka Ashraf said: BCCI k lalach mein nahi ayen ***
Before we start screaming 'fashi chai' , remember that we sort of owe a lot to BCCI in the way of undue favours. Our test status for one , and even the T20 World Cup and Asia Cup remaining here since back in early January nobody in their right minds could predict that we would suddenly become peaceful again. Not that this new proposal is beneficial but when majority of the nations are probably going to comply, we only stand to lose more if we reject it. I can only hope nations like South Africa , Sri Lanka and West Indies will put up vetoes and bail our ***
India: Mission Impossible, West Indies: shouldn't lose, Pakistan: 50-50, South Africa: their home curse against us has to end soon
IPL 7: Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings eye full retentions in auction Press Trust of India | 09-Jan-2014 17:32 PM New Delhi: Defending champions Mumbai Indians and the formidable Chennai Super Kings are the two franchises which are set to retain all five players when the teams submit their lists on Friday for the upcoming seventh edition of Indian Premier League. MI and CSK are the two teams that have the biggest fan base all over India and have had a core set of players that has remained pretty much the same over the years. As far as BCCI president N Srinivasan's franchise is concerned, skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be retained along with Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin and Suresh Raina - all India regulars. The choice of foreign player will be between West Indies' Dwayne Bravo and South Africa's Faf du Plessis. Dhoni's fascination for seam-bowling allrounders is widely documented and Bravo certainly will hold an edge over his South African rival, who has also caught the imagination with ...
The 2015 Cricket World Cup will be held in - (1) Australia and New Zealand (2) England (3) South Africa (4) West Indies
Cheteshwar Pujara moves to career-best fifth in ICC Test rankings, Virat Kohli remains static at No. 11! In the all-rounder's ranking, Ashwin continued to rule the roost at the top. South Africa's AB de Villiers leads the Test batsmen table with 912 points followed by Shivnarine Chanderpaul(876) of West Indies and Ross Taylor (871) from New Zealand. Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha fell one spot to ninth position in the bowlers' table, led by South Africa's Vernon Philander. Ojha lost his place to Australian speedster Mitchell Johnson, who had a sensational Ashes series gained three points to jump to 8th in the bowling list. Johnson's teammate Ryan Harris, jumped to a career-best third. Philander was followed by his teammate Dale Steyn.
The first ODI was played on 5 January 1971 between Australia and England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. When the first three days of the third Test were washed out officials decided to abandon the match and, instead, play a one-off one day game consisting of 40 eight-ball overs per side. Australia won the game by 5 wickets. ODIs were played in white kits with a red ball. The ten Test-playing nations (which are also the ten full members of the ICC) have permanent ODI status. The nations are listed below with the date of each nation's ODI debut shown in brackets: 1)Australia (5 January 1971) 2)England (5 January 1971) 3)New Zealand (11 February 1973) 4)Pakistan (11 February 1973) 5)West Indies (5 September 1973) 6)India (13 July 1974) 7)Sri Lanka (13 February 1982) 8)South Africa (10 November 1991) 9)Zimbabwe (25 October 1992) 10)Bangladesh (10 October 1997)
New Zealand v West Indies, 3rd ODI, Queenstown match preview West Indies chase unassailable series lead Big Picture Washout at Napier has effectively consigned this to a four-match series. A win for West Indies will give them an unassailable 2-0 lead so the pressure increases on New Zealand to win the next three games to seal the series. New Zealand may not have made rapid strides as a Test side in 2013 but, as a one-day unit, surprised the likes of South Africa and England in their own backyard. They were comfortable in conditions replicating home, like the two previously stated countries, but fell woefully short in Bangladesh. After dominating the Tests against West Indies, they took their eye off the ball at Eden Park. Though their bowlers made West Indies huff and puff, their batsmen know they can't get complacent. West Indies endured a woeful 2013 in comparison, having won only nine ODIs out of 24, losing 13. The jury's still out on the split-captaincy policy with Dwayne Bravo not delivering the resu ...
In test matches, Jacques Kallis - the South African allrounder, has won the most man of the match awards. Muthiah Muralitharan, the bowler who holds record of most wickets, comes second while Pakistani legend Wasim Akram and Aussie spin wizard Shane Warne follow as joint third. Here's a list of cricketers with more than a dozen man of the match awards in tests :- 23 = Jacques Kallis of South Africa, 145 tests. 19 = Muthiah Muralitharan of Sri Lanka, 133 tests. 17 = Shane Warne of Australia, 145 tests. 17 = Wasim Akram of Pakistan, 104 tests. 16 = Ricky Ponting of Australia, 152 tests. 15 = Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka, 113 tests. 14 = Sachin Tendulkar of India, 177 tests. 14 = Curtley Ambrose of West Indies, 98 tests. 14 = Steve Waugh of Australia, 168 tests. 12 = Ian Botham of England, 102 tests. 12 = Brian Lara of West Indies, 131 tests.

8 runs short - WOW! South Africa fell eight runs short of a world-record run chase as the First Test against India in Johannesburg finished in a draw. South Africa finished the day on 7 for 450 after starting the day on 2 for 138 chasing 458 to win. A 205-run fifth-wicket partnership between Faf du Plessis and AB de Villiers set up the dramatic finish. De Villiers was bowled for 103, while Du Plessis was run out for 134 with 19 balls left. Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander batted out the final 3 overs with Steyn clubbing a 6 off the final ball. The highest successful fourth-innings run chase in Test history remains the 418 scored by West Indies to beat Australia in 2003. South Africa's total was the third-highest ever scored in a Test match fourth innings.
DECEMBER 19, 2013 Tours from *** Nicholas Hogg | | 2 COMMENTS The 1859 English tourists ready to leave Liverpool for the first ever cricket tour overseas. James Lillywhite (front row, right) and John Wisden (back row, fourth from left, seated) © Getty Images Enlarge "The tour is only a matter of hours old... but the wry thought occurs to me that reputations will almost certainly be destroyed in the next few months." So begins Geoff Boycott in his diary of the 1981 England tour of the West Indies, In the Fast Lane. Captained by a young Ian Botham, the Caribbean campaign quickly faltered. England followed on and lost the First Test by an innings, and the Guyanese government cancelled the second game when they revoked Robin Jackman's visa due to his connections with apartheid South Africa. When the series resumed Michael Holding bowled what many hail as The Greatest Ever Over at a hapless Boycott. Yet the Holding barrage was overshadowed by the tragic death of assistant tour manager Ken Barrington, who ...
Ryder has been recalled to New Zealand colours for the first time since February 2012 as part of a 13-man squad for the one-day seriesagainst West Indies. Elsewhere in the squad, Martin Guptill has returned from injury and will partner Ryder at the top of the order, meaning that Tom Latham misses out. Tim Southee will miss the first two matches of the series to have a toe problem dealt with, but is expected to return for the third ODI in Queenstown. Ryder has not played at international level after being dropped for disciplinary issues during the one-day series against South Africa. He has sincehad to serve a six-month suspension for taking banned stimulants, a period which coincidedwith his recovery from the serious assault he suffered in Christchurch earlier this year. Since returning to domestic cricket for Otago, following a move away from Wellington, he has scored 454 runs at 64.85 in four Plunket Shield matches. There has been understandable caution about Ryder's return to the New Zealand fold, but ...
Sachin Tendulkar was lucky not to face legendary West Indian pacers, says Imran Khan New Delhi: Former Pakistan captain Imran Khan said on Saturday that recently-retired Indian batting icon Sachin Tendulkar was lucky to have never faced the ferocious West Indies pace attack of '70 and '80s. While delivering a lecture on leadership at an All India Management Association function in New Delhi, Imran said, facing the likes of Andy Roberts, Michael Holding, Joel Garner, Malcolm Marshall and Colin Croft was a huge task. In fact, Imran pointed out that some fine talent was forced to be on the bench because the frontliners were irreplaceable. "There was Sylvester Clark, who used to be on the bench mostly but on a rebel tour of South Africa, he demolished the opposition single-handedly," Imran said. "My friend, the poor guy, Sunny Gavaskar bore the brunt of the West Indian fast-bowling attack. Sachin is very lucky that he didn't face them," he added. Tendulkar retired recently after playing international cricket ...

Pakistan selectors have dropped opening batsman Nasir Jamshed and leftarm spinner Abdul Rehman for this month’s Twenty20 internationals against Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. Lefthanded batsmen Sharjeel Khan and Haris Sohail were included in the 14-man squad as the selectors also ignored allrounders Abdul Razzaq and Shoaib Malik. Sharjeel Khan is yet to make his international debut while Sohail has played one T20 international against West Indies and four ODIs. Offspinner Saeed Ajmal will miss the T20 international against Afghanistan at Sharjah on Dec. 8 due to family reasons but will join the team for the two Twenty20s against Sri Lanka on December 11 and 13 at Dubai.. Mean while, Pakistan Twenty20 captain Mohammad Hafeez today said he was neither consulted nor aware of the national squad announced for the three T20 matches against Afghanistan and Sri Lanka in the UAE this month. Hafeez, who returned from South Africa tonight, was candid in telling reporters at the airport that he did not know who were th ...
India retain 2nd spot in ICC Test rankings Sun, 1 Dec 4:30 pm The Indian cricket team continued to be second in the ICC Test rankings with R Ashwin topping the all-rounders' chart in the latest list issued today. India are placed behind South Africa with 119 points, which is just 12 less than the Proteas' tally. The teams are set to clash in a two-Test and thee ODI series starting December 5 in South Africa. Cheteshwar Pujara is the best-placed Indian batsman at sixth with Virat Kohli following him at a distant 20th spot. In the bowlers' list, R Ashwin is fifth, followed by Pragyan Ojha at ninth. Meanwhile, New Zealand and the West Indies will begin their contest in a three-Test series from December 3 in Dunedin with an aim to improve their ratings points in the team standings, the ICC said in a statement. West Indies enter the series in sixth position on 95 ratings points, while New Zealand start off in eighth place with 75 ratings points. If New Zealand was to win the series by a margin of 2-0, they can ...

I see there has been a bit of confusion pertaining next year ICC T20 World Cup - fair enough confusion is part of cricket these days. I will try to simplify it now, The men's World Cup (By the way they run concurently with the ladies'), So the men's World Cup consists of 16 teams, get that one right - 16 teams. Automatic qualification for the Test playing nations- West Indies, India, Bangladesh, Australia, England, South Africa, Pakistan, Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka and New Zealand. Then there is the 6 teams from the associates that played the qualifiers (The final which is on today) - Ireland, Afganistan, Netherlands, Hong Kong, Nepal and United Arab Emirates. So in total we have 16 teams already qualified for the World Cup. So how it will work out... (The confusion part) There is the first round (Please note its not a qualifier to the World Cup, its already the World Cup). The 1st round will have the 2 'strongest' Test playing nations (Zimbabwe and Bangladesh) and the 6 associate teams that played qualifiers. B ...
Mr. MSD & Co – Are you prepared? Don’t uncork the bubbly yet. Yes, India have crushed Australia and the West Indies and won two back-to-back ODI series. But this is no time to rejoice because beneath our victories lie some of our biggest problems. The ODI wins have created a false sense of joy which may just come undone during India’s tour to South Africa. We take a look at some of the problems that exist in Indian cricket despite recent victories India’s top three have been stupendous. Their good performances have hidden the cracks that lie underneath. India’s middle-order has been fragility personified and the day the trio fail to roll on to a big score Team India would come into mighty trouble. The short ball demons continue to haunt most of the Indian batsmen. The story will be no different when the famed Indian batting line-up takes on the likes of Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel who will be waiting to exploit their shortcomings against pace and bounce. Death bowling has been a perennial proble ...
Virat Kohli was the best batsman on either side in the just-concluded series against West Indies in India. Can he do the same in South Africa in conditions much harder for batting? The action begins in Johannesburg on December 5th.
Left-arm pacer Zaheer Khan has been called back into the Indian Test team for the tour of South Africa scheduled to start next month. Ishant Sharma, who had been dropped from the ODI side against West Indies has also found his way back following a nine-wicket haul for Delhi against Haryana. Zaheer had last played for India in the Eden Gardens Test against England in December, 2012 but returned impressive performances for India A and Mumbai in the ongoing Ranji Trophy matches. The Mumbai speedster is five short of becoming the fourth Indian after Kapil Dev, Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh to pick up 300 Test match wickets. Interestingly, Zaheer was one of three senior players along with Harbhajan and Virender Sehwag to lose their central contracts last week. Ishant, who was taken for plenty in the ODI series against Australia, also reclaimed his spot, mainly on the basis of his match-winning show on Sunday. Meanwhile, senior batsmen Gautam Gambhir and Sehwag continued to be ignored despite the former's 153 ...
Atherton calls for more even distribution of game's profits Mike Atherton, the former England captain, has called on cricket's most powerful nations to do more for the wellbeing of the weaker Test teams, including a more even distribution of the game's profits between the sides. Speaking during a panel discussion at the ESPNcricinfo at 20 event in Brisbane on Tuesday night, where he was joined by former Australia captain Steve Waugh, commentator Jim Maxwell and Cricket New South Wales CEO Andrew Jones, Atherton raised the widening chasm between the richer and poorer countries as a major issue for the future of the sport. He highlighted the IPL as one example of the way teams like New Zealand and West Indies were disadvantaged. "I think strategically it's the biggest issue that faces the game, really," Atherton said. "You've got four very strong nations [financially] in India, England, Australia and South Africa to a lesser extent, and then a lot of ailing nations. So you're getting a kind of two-tiered sy ...
“Look at our performance since 2011, we beat Sri Lanka, India in India, we won the Asia Cup, beat West Indies in West Indies. We have been poor only in this year. The reason for our downfall is that in previous years we were playing in conditions which suited us. But this year when our team went to South Africa, they were inexperienced and they were playing in alien conditions. There our batsmen struggled. Even in Champions Trophy, we were playing in England in alien conditions. Similarly in Zimbabwe, we were playing on seaming pitches. (Misbah)
Overall, Sachin Tendulkar has been dismissed in 10 in the nervous 90s in his Test career. The list: 94 vs West Indies at Wankhede (Nov 2011) 91 vs England at The Oval (Aug 2011) 98 vs Australia at Mohali (2010) 97 vs South Africa at Mumbai (2000) 96 vs Sri Lanka at Bangalore (1994) 94 vs Pakistan at Mohali (2005) 92 vs West Indies at Barbados (1997) 92 vs England at Trent Bridge (1994) 91 vs England at Trent Bridge (2007) 90 vs England at Bangalore (2001)
When the Imperial Cricket Conference (as it was originally called) was founded in 1909, only England, Australia and South Africa were members. India , West Indies and New Zealand became Test nations before the Second World War and Pakistan soon afterwards. The international game grew with several "affiliate nations" getting involved and, in the closing years of the 20th century, three of those became Test nations also: Sri Lanka , Zimbabwe and Bangladesh . Test cricket remained the sport's highest level of standard throughout the 20th century but it had its problems, notably in the infamous "Bodyline Series" of 1932–33 when Douglas Jardine's England used so- called "leg theory" to try and neutralise the run-scoring brilliance of Australia's Don Bradman.

When Sachin is enjoying all the adulations.Pujara played like a silent assasin to score his 5th ton. Now he has more tons (5) than 50s (3). Another Tendulkar..Arjun (U-14 Probable) acted like a ball boy in this match. Gr8 as Sachin Tendulkar too acted as a ball boy in 1987 World Cup which saw the last of Sunny Gavaskar. Siddhu was a strokeless wonder till then but he blossomed as sixer man in 1987 World Cup and now his commentary is like a flowing river. Talent is not enough but has to be supplemented with proper dedication and determination otherwise Kambli was also vey talented. Bhajji,Zaheer & Viru loses BCCI contract. Saina Nehwal and P.Kashyap lost in China Open 2nd round and Vishy loses to Carlsen in game 5 of his world title defence but with West Indies tottering at 112/6.Mahi and his young guns next real test will be against Proteas next month in South Africa without Sachin. Virat, Rohit, Shikhar and Pujara will have to prove their talent there.

DRAWN SERIES RESULTS YIELDS NO JOY FOR New Zealand Every Test counts as teams eye place in the inaugural ICC World Test Championship 2017, where 4 top ranking teams will qualify. A 0-0 drawn series with host Bangladesh has resulted in New Zealand dropping four ratings points, but it has retained its eighth rank on the Reliance ICC Test Team Rankings table. 8th-ranked New Zealand entered the series with 79 ratings points, leading Bangladesh by 69 ratings points. As such, because the rankings are weighted to reflect this difference, Black Caps would have gained just 1 ratings point if it had won both the Tests. Host Bangladesh, ranked 10th, had entered the series with 10 ratings points. The 0-0 series result meant that it gained eight ratings points to end at 18 and thereby reduced the gap with ninth-ranked Zimbabwe to 16. Reliance ICC Test Rankings table. as on 25 October: (Rating) 1. South Africa (135), 2. England (116), 3. India (116). 4. Australia (101), 5. West Indies (99), 6. Pakistan (97), 7. Sri La ...
1998 - Bangladesh Winners: South Africa Runners-up: West Indies No. Countries: 9 The first edition of the ICC Champions Trophy, then known as the ICC Knockout Trophy, was staged in Bangladesh. All matches were played at the Bangabandhu Stadium in Dhaka, but the slow and low pitches produced some poor cricket. Severe flooding threatened to cause the whole show to be moved to India, and it only got the go-ahead at the 11th hour. As it was, Dhaka was the third choice after Disneyworld (Florida) and Sharjah. The knock-out format, with eight matches compressed into nine days, fuelled the locals' excitement. Nine teams took part in the event with only eight making it to the quarter-finals. New Zealand played Zimbabwe for the eighth spot and defeated them by five wickets to make it to the last eight. South Africa, Sri Lanka, India and West Indies progressed to the semi-finals. In a rain-affected first semi-final, South Africa defeated Sri Lanka by 92 runs on D/L method. Put into bat, man-of-the-match Jacques Kal ...

Cricket moves out of England Cricket was introduced to North America via the English colonies in the 17th century,[3] probably before it had even reached the north of England. In the 18th century it arrived in other parts of the globe. It was introduced to the West Indies by colonists[3] and to India by British East India Company mariners in the first half of the century. It arrived in Australia almost as soon as colonisation began in 1788. New Zealand and South Africa followed in the early years of the 19th century.[4] Cricket never caught on in Canada, despite efforts by an imperial-minded elite to promote the game as a way of identifying with the British Empire. Canada, unlike Australia and the West Indies, witnessed a continual decline in the popularity of the game during 1860–1960. Linked to upper class British-Canadian elites, the game never became popular with the general public. In the summer season it had to compete with baseball. During the First World War, Canadian units stationed in Britain ...

West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo has been suspended from his team's encounter with Sri Lanka in the fifth match of the Tri-Nation Series at the Queen's Park Oval on Sunday. In a decision handed down by the International Cricket Council match referee Jeff Crowe and released on Saturday, it was explained that the all-rounder faces the sanction due to his team's second minor over-rate offence in a 12-month period. The West Indies were determined to be one over short of the required over-rate during the fourth match of the series against India on Friday. It follows on a similar infraction less than a month earlier during the final group match of the Champions Trophy against South Africa at Cardiff on June 14. Bravo pleaded guilty to the offence and as the West Indies team did not contest the charge, there was no need for a formal hearing on the matter. Coming *** the heels of a 102-run loss to the Indians in that rain-affected fixture, Bravo's suspension represents a further setback to a home side that is ...
TODAYIN HISTORY: 1977 Birth of the first black man to play for South Africa. With an action consciously modelled on that of Malcolm Marshall, Makhaya Ntini made his ODI and Test debut in 1998. In 1999 his career looked over when he was convicted of rape. However, he was acquitted on appeal and went on to build a formidable international career, becoming a regular in the South African line-up and troubling opposition batsmen with steep bounce derived from deliveries bowled wide of the crease from over the wicket. In 2003, he became the first South African to take ten wickets in a Test at Lord's, and his 13 for 132 against West Indies in Trinidad in 2005 is the best match haul for a South African in Tests. Ntini became the third South African to get to 300 Test wickets, in January 2007. His form tapered off after that, but he remained among the top three wicket-takers in the 2000s. He was named South Africa's Cricketer of the Year in 2005 and 2006, and completed 100 Tests in 2009. But he played just one mor ...

Champions Trophy 2013 Team of the tournament As you would expect in a short, sharp tournament, the two sides who reached the final provide the bulk of the XI for the this team. Three players were unanimous among the ESPNcricinfo writers polled - Shikhar Dhawan, Ravindra Jadeja and James Anderson - while the most uncertainty surrounded the second opener, then positions six and eight. Shikhar Dhawan - 363 runs @ 90.75, S/R 101.39 Barely put a foot wrong throughout the tournament. Began with commanding back-to-back hundreds against South Africa and West Indies and had a lowest score of 31 in the 20-over final. Flourishing a little later in his career than some India batsmen, but now looks primed for a long stint in the top-order and his re-emergence has helped the transition from Virender Sehwag. Immensely strong through the off side although may yet have to work on playing the short ball. No close challenger for the golden bat and also named Player of the Tournament.

So...As Expected Pakistan, West Indies, New Zealand, Australia and now South Africa are Out. England and India were always the strongest contenders for the Champions Trophy. Looks like England this year but can't rule out India as well :/
'I pointed out to him', he noted in his diary, 'that it would logically lead to the self-determination of Gibraltar to Spain, Malta to the Maltese, Cyprus to the Greeks, Egypt to the Egyptians, Aden to the Arabs or Somalis, India to chaos, Hong Kong to the Chinese, South Africa to the Kaffirs, West Indies to the blacks, etc. And where would the British Empire be?

I wore maroon once that day West Indies were knocked out from the group stage, I wore black that day and New Zealand was ruled out unfortunately and today I wore green. Guess what, the chokers South Africa is out of the Champions Trophy !! Now I won't gonna wear any sort of blue cloth till this event gets to an end ..
India will meet Sri Lanka in the semis. South Africa will meet England in the semis. Where Australia,West Indies,Pakistan and New Zealand will meet.!!??
How bizarre! If England top the group in the ICC Champions Trophy and play South Africa at the Oval, should it be rained off, England automatically go through to the final as group winners! What a waste of time as the West Indies went out on the Duckworth/Lewis calculation. Not the ideal advert for the 50 over game!
This one is for Cricket Lovers!!! World Cup 1992, Semifinal: After a rain interruption South Africa needed 22 off 7 balls, they came out, played 1 dot ball, rain again and then according to D/L Method they needed 21 runs to win from 1 ball. South Africa eliminated World Cup 1996: West Indies beat South Africa World Cup 1999, Semifinal: Match tied, but Australia progressed because they beat South Africa in Super 6. South Africa eliminated again World Cup 2003, Do-or-die Game: South Africa miscalculated the D/L Target and said to Mark Boucher that 229 is the winning target in 45 overs, Boucher hit a six on the second last ball taking the score to 229 and defended the last ball,umpires took the players off, SA realized 229 wasa D/L Tie and were eliminated in Group Stage Champions Trophy 2013: Rain + D/L Method + West Indies + Tie & South Africa beat them all in one game to go to the Semis !
Former test cricketers want Pakistan shakeup ISLAMABAD: Former test cricketers called for drastic changes to the Pakistan team Sunday after its shambolic performance in the Champions Trophy. Pakistan lost all three group matches to be eliminated from the tournament as its batsmen crumbled against West Indies, South Africa and archrival India with the scores of 170, 167 and 165 respectively. Fast bowling great Wasim Akram told Geo Television that Pakistan used to give India a tough fight during his playing days, and he was surprised tosee Pakistan struggling on a batting-friendl y wicket at Edgbaston on Saturday. ``We didn't used to play like what I saw on Saturday as our batsmen fell like pack of cards,'' Akram said. ``Someone has to be brave enough and prepare young cricketers when seniors are not performing.'' Last month Akram trained Pakistan's bowlers at a camp in Karachi and spent few days with the Champions Trophy squad when the team convened at the northern city of Abbottabad. But after watching se ...

West Indies have won the toss and chose to field first. it will be a 36 Overs Match Devon Smith is playing and Dale Steyn come back in South Africa's line up
South Africa After a straightforward loss against India in their opening match of the tournament, South Africa did well to bounce back and beat Pakistan by a huge margin of 67 runs just last week. The mainstay of the team is their exceptional batting. Right from the openers till number seven in their unit, all batsmen have been in a brilliant form and if they win the toss, one can expect a barrage of runs. Hashim Amla has been destructive hitting a solid 81 that helped him earn the Man of the match award in the previousmatch. The other batsmen Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, David Miller, Ryan McLaren all have been in decent form contributing useful runs tothe total. Although there have been middle-order collapses that have pegged back their batting at times, one cannot deny that South Africa commands one of the best batting units in the tournament and they would be expected to put up a fighting total when they take on West Indies. Having no Dale Steyn or Morne Morkel in the side, on paper, mak ...
Will Bravo choke on his words? By Zaahier Adams Cardiff - The temperature may be on the cool side here in the Welsh capital, with beanies and coats the most sought-after clothing items on Thursday, but almost like a good heater, West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo certainly knew just how to warm things up ahead of the crucial Group B clash with South Africa on Friday. A straightforward scenario faces both teams, with defeat resulting in the loser packing their bags for the Heathrow exit terminal. Taking this into consideration, the Windies skipper, one of the straightest shooters in the game, certainly did not mollycoddle his response to the Proteas’ record in such winner-takes-all matches at major ICC tournaments. “I think the South Africans will feel the pressure. They know if they lose, they are going back home. They have a tag of being chokers that do not do well in big tournaments, so that would be added pressure on them,” Bravo said bluntly. “For us, we’re going to enjoy the occasion and forg ...

BREAKING NEWS FROM ICC CHAMP TROPHY **DANGERMAN DALE STYEN PASS THE MATCH FITNESS TEST South Africa pace bowler Dale Steyn has been passed fit for Friday's winner-takes-all Champions Trophy Group B clash against West Indies in Cardiff. A side strain kept Steyn out of South Africa's opening two matches of the tournament, but he bowled at full intensity in the nets on Thursday, a statement from Cricket South Africa said. The winner of Friday's match will join India in the semifinals of the competition from the pool. Steyn's return would boost a depleted South Africa bowling line-up already missing Morne Morkel, though just who would make way is unclear. Captain AB de Villiers suggested the decision would be based around whether the team persevere with their two frontline spinners, Robin Peterson and Aaron Phangiso. Chris Morris would be the likely casualty if South Africa decided to go that route, otherwise Phangiso would make way.

South Africa showed they could handle the pressure of a “knockout” game at the beginning of the week when they trounced Pakistan at a frenzied Edgbaston to keep their Champions Trophy hopes afloat. And they need to put in a repeat performance again tomorrow against the West Indies here in the Welsh capital to qualify for the knockout stages next week, when the semi-finals get under way. It is high-octane stuff, with every game carrying the threat of elimination if victory is not achieved. The Proteas have not coped well in such thin-air environments in the past, although they won the inaugural Champions Trophy when it was a straight knockout event in 1998. Unfortunately for South African fans that was close on15 years ago, with an entire generation growing up on near-misses, a few unfortunate and a couple of downright awful exits at major ICC tournaments. Perhaps that is why Gary Kirsten’s successor, his assistant, Russell Domingo, does not want to label tomorrow’s game with that dreaded tag. Term ...
Group 'A' Champions Trophy: England win toss, opts to field against Lanka Jun 13 In the Group 'A' ICC Champions Trophy cricket match at the Oval in London, England were 91 for One in 21 overs against Sri Lanka, a short while ago. Earlier, Sri Lanka won the toss and opted to field. England are looking for a semi-final slot, but for Sri Lanka it is a battle for survival. In their opening matches, while England beat Australia by 48 runs, Sri Lanka lost by a wicket to New Zealand. Tomorrow, South Africa will take on the West Indies at Cardiff in a Group 'B' fixture.
Must read- On Tuesday at the Oval, the losing captain, West Indies' Dwayne Bravo, was asked a pertinent question: What was the big difference between the two sides? "We were 25 or 30 runs short of a good total. That could have been a big difference in the game," he replied. Those runs were physically stopped by India on the field, with perhaps the best fielding unit at this ICC Champions Trophy. Whether it was Ravindra Jadeja's run out of Robin Peterson in the opening game against South Africa or the general intensity brought to the inner circle by Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma that shaved 30 runs from West Indies' total, India now constantly manufacture match winning moments on the field, without their batting gear or bowling boots on. And in this young and versatile crux of India's fielding unit, skipper MS Dhoni has got what he always wanted. A third dimension to his attack. "Batting and bowling vary from game to game, but fielding is a constant where we should always be scoring. But we on ...
* BIRMINGHAM: When Pakistan restricted South Africa to 234 in their Champions Trophy game here at Edgbaston cricket ground on Monday, expectations were high that they will reach the victory target to put their faltering title campaign back on course.* But to achieve that target on a wicket which South African opener Hashim Amla – the match’s top-scorer — later described as a difficult wicket to bat on, it was important for Pakistan’s under-achieving top order to finally fire. All eyes were on Mohammad Hafeez, the vice-captain, who is also the most accomplished top-order batsman in the current Pakistan line-up. Hafeez had flopped in Pakistan’s two-wicket defeat against West Indies at The Oval last Friday and needed to bounce back against the Proteas to keep Pakistan’s hopes alive. But once again, Hafeez failed to live up to expectations, falling cheaply for 7 to leave Pakistan in trouble. It has been a familiar sight as Hafeez fails against top-flight teams more often than not. And that’s a p ...
South Africa's hopes of reaching the Champions Trophy semi-finals received a boost with the news that pace spearhead Dale Steyn is likely to be fit for their virtual quarter-final against West Indies on June 14. Given their poor record in knockout matches, South Africa will look to the experience of their best bowler to help them win. IR
12/6/13 - Pakistan knocked out of Champions Trophy as India reach semi-finals! "World Cup holders India marched into the Champions Trophy semi-finals with an emphatic win over the West Indies on Tuesday that knocked arch-rivals Pakistan out of the race. A career-best five-wicket haul by Ravindra Jadeja and a second successive century from Shikhar Dhawan lifted India to an eight-wicket victory at the packed Oval ground on a grim, overcast day in London. Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men, backed by some 22,000 largely Indian supporters at the stadium, restricted the West Indies to 233-9 and then batted fluently to surpass the target in 39.1 overs. Left-hander Dhawan followed his 114 in the tournament opener against South Africa with an unbeaten 102, reaching his second one-day hundred by smashing Dwayne Bravo for a six over third man. Dhawan put on 101 for the first wicket with Rohit Sharma (52) and an unbroken 109 for the third with Dinesh Karthik, who made 51 not out. India's second successive win in group B ens ...
Editorial -2 Pakistan makes unceremonious exit In the absence of Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel, the relatively weak South African bowling attack rattled Pakistan, once again exposing the limitation of the players’ technique, temperament, capability and maturity to deal with the swing, the seam and the bounce that English pitches offer. Even the two batters Captain Misbahul Haq and Nasir Jamshed, who managed to score some runs in the two lost matches, never looked like match-winners at the international level. Against the lowly rated West Indies, Pakistan bowling made a match out of it but its batting failed to click against the pace of KAJ Roach. Then again in a crucial match against South Africa, Pakistan batsmen failed to cope with pace of a debutant Chris Morris and the spin of JP Duminy and Robin Peterson. Pakistan opener Imran Farhat, who has been in the side for the reasons best known to the headless Pakistan Cricket Board, was cleaned bowled through the gate like a naïve club cricketer. Even worst ...
Welcome to the Donut Highlight Reel. West Indies vs India 6th ODI. West Indies: 233/9 (50.0 Overs) India: 236/2 (39.1 Overs) India won by 8 wickets. Man of the Match: Ravindra Jadeja for his 5 wickets. India STORM into the semi finals and with that they were able to kick out their arch enemy Pakistan out of the tournament. India seems to be the strongest team in this tournament so far and dare I might say they will win the tournament. West Indies put up an effort but it was just not enough. West Indies has to beat South Africa to advance or else they will pack up just like Pakistan. Do join us tomorrow for Australia vs New Zealand.
Ravindra Jadeja is the Man of the Match for his fantastic bowling effort. That's it from us today. Australia play New Zealand in a contest from Down Under tomorrow. Do join us. Till then, this is Priyank Shah saying good bye. Cheers! The Men in Blue were just clinical with their effort today. They bowled well to reduce the opposition to a gettable today and in reply, the in-form batting order made no fuss in chasing down a total of 234. Century from Dhawan again and decent knocks by Rohit Sharma and Karthik. West Indies were always playing the catch-up game and never really got going with their bowling after performing poorly with the bat. India have managed back to back wins and hence, confirmed their berth in the semis. That also means from Group B, Pakistan have been knocked out with a game to play against India. South Africa vs West Indies will now be a virtual quarter-final.
Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan got India off to a brilliant start yet again. Rohit Sharma went on to score his 15th ODI fifty. West Indies were poor in the field and Kemar Roach dropped Dhawan on 41. Narine picked up Rohit Sharma for 52 while Kohli departed for 22. However, Dinesh Karthik joined Dhawan and they ensured that India suffered no more jolts . Dhawan joined an elite company by scoring back to back tons in this competition while Karthik sealed off the match with a boundary to notch up his 6 th ODI fifty. There were not many positives for the West Indies and they will have to pull up their socks for their crunch game against South Africa
IND vs WI, London Starts at 03:00 PM IST (09:30 GMT), Jun 11 Both teams may have won their previous games, but there are still many pressing issues to address as they seek to book their berth in the next round. West Indies and India both got off to winning starts but will stillhope to iron out the flaws and keep the momentum going for the tougher games ahead. Both the teams will know very well that a win here will almost guarantee a spot in the last fourstage of the tournament, being held for the last time. While reigning world championsIndia defeated injury-hit South Africa by 26 runs in Cardiff after posting a commanding 331 for 7, the West Indies eked out a close two-wicket win over Pakistan in a low-scoring game on Friday. The clash will be a battle between many players who have solid 'knowledge' of each other. Having just played the Indian Premier League, India and the West Indies are studdedwith key players who are aware of each other's strengths and weaknesses. India, with a muscular batting line-u ...
South Africa's Champions Trophy hopes are still alive. They must beat the West Indies on Friday to book a semi-final spot News
UPDATE: West Indies vice captain and wicket-keeper Denesh Ramdin has decided not to appeal his suspension and fine. He will therefore miss the upcoming Group B matches against India at the Oval tomorrow and South Africa in Cardiff on Friday. Johnson Charles will take the gloves.

India well equipped to counter West Indian unpredictability Dwayne Bravo will hope his top-order batsmen will shed their inconsistency at The Oval. The equation for India and West Indies is fairly simple. Having won their first matches, victory here will almost certainly guarantee a semi-final place, provided there’s no complete meltdown in the final game. India certainly won’t want to go into a match against Pakistan with a last-four place at stake. West Indies, whose recent ODI record against South Africa is so poor, also won’t fancy a winner-takes-all situation. Though the surface in Cardiff was to its liking, India won’t be too disappointed by the move to The Oval. The pitch there should be a tougher proposition for the batsmen, but if the West Indies-Pakistan match was any guide, there will also be far more assistance for Umesh Yadav and the other pace bowlers. R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja will also enjoy bowling in conditions that are generally spin-friendly as well. Shikhar Dhawan’s dazzl ...
Desperate teams face off in crucial match (Submitted by Sports Journalist) THE Champions Trophy will only be five days old today but already it's crunch time. Defeat at Edgbaston will leave either South Africa or Pakistan on the brink of exit. Neither team is ready for that reality yet, so expect a tooth-and-nail affair between two desperate units. The numbers are in South Africa's favour. They beat Pakistan 3-2 in a series in March and, even though they lost the warm-up match last Monday, they are in better shape after their opening match against India. South Africa ensured their net run-rate remained high when they ran India close and they showed they could bat deep. Pakistan did the opposite. They were woeful against a West Indies attack that challenged with pace and spin, and only Nasir Jamshed and Misbah-ul-Haq showed any fight. However, even though they only scored 170, their bowlers kept them in the game until the last 10 overs, showing they could defend as long as there was a reasonable total. The ...
Sri Lanka spinner Muttiah Muralitharan, true to form, holds the greatest economy rate in a single match (qualifier: 30 deliveries). His 10 miserly overs churned out against the West Indies in Nairobi in 200 conceded a mere nine runs - for an entirely cheap aggregate of 0.90. Six years later, the Windies were bogged down by another Sri Lankan in seamer Chaminda Vaas - and his six-over economy rate of just 1.00. West Indian Chris Gayle, South Africa's Herschelle Gibbs and India's Sourav Ganguly boast the most centuries, with three each. Gibbs has the better ratio, scoring his tons in three games less than Ganguly and four fewer than Gayle. Australia's Shane Watson, meanwhile, will have the opportunity to draw level - and perhaps go one better - on the back of 2009's twin tons. Watson, however, has also accrued the unwelcome record of most tournament ducks. His four will remain unrivalled, unless captain Dwayne Bravo bags a couple during the West Indies' Group B campaign in the United Kingdom. Former Sri Lan ...
PAKISTAN VS South AfriCA PREVIEW: In-form players: Misbah stood tall in the ruins, against the West Indies pace attack. The good thing is he went on to notch up his highest score in ODIs - an unbeaten 96. Weak links: Pakistan's batting. Not that the line-up lacks talent, far from it. However, there seems to be a mental block. Probable XI: Imran Farhat, Nasir Jamshed, Mohammad Hafeez, Asad Shafiq, Misbah-ul-Haq (captain), Shoaib Malik, Kamran Akmal (WK), Wahab Riaz, Saeed Ajmal, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Irfan
ENGLAND V AUSTRALIA - ICC Champions Trophy England open their ICC Champions Trophy campaign at Edgbaston, against old foes Australia. The two teams are in Group A, with New Zealand and Sri Lanka for company. This will be the first match from this group; South Africa, India, West Indies and Pakistan have already played one round of matches each from Group B. England beat New Zealand by 34 runs in their last One Day International (ODI). The match was the third of a three-match series; Alastair Cook's men's win did nothing to change the outcome of that series for the Kiwis had already won the first two. Cook was dismissed for a duck but Ian Bell, Jonathan Trott, Joe Root and Eoin Morgan managed reasonable scores with the bat. A whirlwind 47 off 16 balls by Jos Buttler pushed England to 287 in their innings. The visitors made England sweat for their win. Ross Taylor top scored with 71 but the star of the first two ODIs - Martin Guptill - was the big wicket. The New Zealand opener followed his unbeaten 103 at ...
According to you which team has best bowling attack in Champions Trophy 2013 who can defend any total? 1.India 2.Pakistan 3.South Africa 4.West Indies 5.England 6.Srilanka 7.Australia 8.New Zealand
ICC World Test Championship- The Format. According to an announcement made by the ICC at their headquarters in Dubai, the format will comprise an inaugural league stage, played over a period of four years, with all current 10 test cricket nations of the ICC (Australia, India, England, South Africa, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, NewZealand, West Indies, Zimbabwe, and Bangladesh) participating. They will compete in a league stage spread over four years, and then the top four teams will take part in the playoffs with the final determining the Test cricket champions. No decision has been made concerning how to decide the outcome of drawn matches in the knock-out stages.
South Africa seek redemption after loss. South Africa face a tough task to put their Champions Trophy campaign back on track after being laid low by injuries and a demoralising defeat to India. The Proteas hopes of winning the tournament slipped when they crashed by 26 runs against Mahendra Singh Dhoni's world champions in a high-scoring opener in Cardiff on Thursday (June 6). AB de Villiers men must now defeat Pakistan in Birmingham on Monday to keep their hopes alive of taking one of the two semi-final spots from group B, which also features the West Indies. Victory will depend largely on how quickly their two strike fast bowlers, the fearsome Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel, recover from injuries. Steyn did not play against India due to a side strain suffered during a warm-up match against Pakistan earlier this week, while Morkel limped of with a leg injury while bowling his seventh over on Thursday. Neither of the key bowlers is a certain starter against Pakistan, who already enjoy a psychological edge fo ...
Pakistan Team news: Pakistan are a tricky team and after a solid performance against South Africa in thewarm-up game, they will be geared up for the real challenge against West Indies. Thanks to their recently-concluded series against Ireland and Scotland, Pakistan have had the chance to get used to the conditions in England beforehand. Theydefinitely come into the tournament with an advantage and plenty of young blood to boost. Skipper Misbah-ul-Haq has the necessary experience to lead the side in a high-profile tournament and his captaincy skills will be put to the test against formidable opposition in the Group. Undoubtedly one of the best bowlers in limited overs cricket, Saeed Ajmalwill be a man to look out for. Pakistan can rely on him to bowl economical overs and pick up important wickets. Pacers Asad Ali and Junaid Khan looked good when they opened the bowling attack against South Africa. Wahab Riaz has also beenconsistent in his spell and displayed a fine performance scalping three wickets in the ...
Match review: South Africa coach Gary Kirsten, meanwhile, is probably re-writing his schedule as I type, and I will hazard a guess that there may be an extra session or two on running between the wickets. At times today it was nothing short of laughable - Robin Peterson and David Miller were victims, there were a couple of close shaves, and several of the batsmen looked like they had been on an communication session run by the Apprentice candidates. 1851: India leave Cardiff smiling, and their odds on winning the competition trimmed slightly ahead of their next encounter against West Indies at The Oval next Tuesday. Man of the match Shikhar Dhawan: "I'm really happy and we won the game so I'm really happy about it. The pressure is always there in international cricket. "Top priority was getting used to the wicket and it's a wonderful feeling to get my first one-day century." South Africa captain AB de Villiers on where they lost the game: "There are a few areas I can think of but I want to speak about our ...
India (7/331) def South Africa (305) South Africa lacked some discipline with the ball early in the innings with the withdrawl of Steyn and the injury in game to Morne Morkel not helping. A superb start from India wth Rohit Sharma (65) and Dhawan (114) batting very well. Some good bowling by Ryan McLaren (3/70) and helped a little by Totsobe (2/80). South Africa had some good middle order performances from Peterson (68), AB (70) and McLaren (71*). It was a good all-around contribution with the ball from India and it was good seeing Yadav come back from injury and take 2 wickets. South Africa will now need to beat the unpredictable Pakistan and West Indies to progress to the next round. While India put themselves in a very nice position for the tournament.
What a great start to the Champions Trophy. A run fest at Cardiff with India emerging victorious over South Africa in the end. More action coming up today. Pakistan taking on West Indies at the Oval. Two extremely talented sides. Match starts at 14:30 Pak | 15:00 Ind.
India wins the first match of the tournament against South Africa !!! Congrats to Shikhar Dhawan for getting his maiden ODI ton :) !!! Next match - West Indies !!! Go INDIA !!!
South Africa beaten India need to step up their game if they are to beat Pakistan todays game could have gone either way but South Africa are nothing without Dale Steyn hopefully he stays injured for the Pakistan match lol bring on West Indies tommorow
TODAY IN HISTORY: 1997 Fresh from putting the boot into West Indies and dashing South Africa's hopes of world supremacy, Australia came to England as strong favourites. But on the first morning of the series at a delirious Edgbaston, they crumbled to 54 for 8. Only Shane Warne got the Aussies to 118. Then Nasser Hussain and Graham Thorpe added 288 in a thrilling partnership, and Hussain's 207 changed his life. By the same token, Mark Taylor's brave second-innings hundred saved his career (he'd made no fifties in his previous 11 Tests) but not the match: England stormed to a nine-wicket win on the fourth evening, and on the back of a 3-0 one-day whitewash, all was well with the world. For two weeks anyway, until England were bowled out for 77 at Lord's, and reality began to dawn. 1912 Birth of a cricket spoilsport. Warwickshire and England legspinner Eric Hollies played only one of his 13 Tests against Australia, but it was enough to give him a place in history. At The Oval in 1948, Don Bradman needed only ...
