Women's Cricket World Cup 2017

We are just fresh out of the ICC Champions Trophy that saw the world’s most unpredictable team, 8th in the ranking and not the top favourite, lift what is the second most coveted cup of the ICC.

We are now stepping into the World of Women. It is time for the Women’s Cricket World Cup. The tournament begins June 24th, 2017 witnessing the clash of eight teams. The finals will be played on 23rd July at Lord’s.

The ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup is the oldest and most prestigious tournament for women. Would you believe that the first world cup ever held was that for the women? And that it took place two entire years before the inaugural men’s cup?

It’s time that the Cricket champions of the Women’s teams of the World get what they deserve. They have proven that they are worth it.

While Women’s International Cricket has been playing since 1934, the inaugural world cup took place in 1973. The eleventh edition takes place this year in England & Wales. While Australia - six-time winner- leads the chart, England is second with three wins and one for New Zealand. India and West Indies’ best performance is their appearance in the finals.

The first four ranked teams automatically qualify. The other four teams earned their place after proving their mettle in the 2017 world cup qualifier.

The teams that are participating in the 2017 edition are Australia, England, New Zealand and West Indies ( the teams that automatically qualified being top four) and India, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Pakistan ( Fought for their place in the tournament recently in Feb 2017).

The venues are Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Somerset, and Gloucestershire with Lord’s hosting the Finals. A befitting climax to what could be a wonderful tournament.

Let the games begin.

Chennai beats Mumbai and clinch thriller

It is not just about coming back. It is about the impact you make in the process. And Chennai team knows how to with a bang.  The Chennai team beat the home team by one wicket in what was an absolute sit-at-the-end-of-the-chair thriller. It was one of the best chases the tournament has seen and it most definitely won't be the last. The player who made the difference in the end - Jadhav - literally came back from the dead after retiring hurt to take his team to the finish line by hitting the ball in style with a six and a four.  Batting on one leg and playing an absolutely unbelievable shot, this player leveled the scores first with a six and finished the match with a four.

Champions Trophy - India is the team to beat

They say tough times brings teams together.  They say adversity brings out the best in us.  Looks like that is what is happening to Team India in the ongoing Champions Trophy in the UK.   AlI the talk about match fixing and spot fixing and conflict of interest seems to be bringing out the best in team India.  I am writing this blog just ahead of the semi finals where India will play Sri Lanka.  But got to say this - looks like team India is firing on all cylinders.  I have never seen the Indian team perform so commandingly well in a tournament before - especially one played outside the sub-continent.  All aspects of the Indian team seems to be clicking well and India is clearly the best team in the tournament so far.
Our bowling is superb, with the exception of Ishanth Sharma.   Bhuvaneshwar Kumar continues to impress one and all - the amazing thing is the carry he gets even when he is bowling around 130 kmph.  I don't think it is because of the wickets alone - I feel the carry he …
