Editor's Pick: India - West Indies

First Match - Abandoned
Second Match - India Beat West Indies by 105 runs.
Third Match - India Beat West Indies by 93 runs.

When West Indies came out to bat, they had a target of 252. It wasn’t a very high target, but the wickets fell like bowling pins, in a manner of speaking. With no individual score reaching half-century, the West Indies Team fell prey to the Indian attack - Bowling and Morale. Kuldeep Yadav and R Ashwin took three wickets each. Hardik Pandya took two wickets with Kedhar Jadhav and U Yadav taking one each. It was a merry day for the bowlers.

Earlier, India came in to bat first. Rahane hit a 72 off 112 balls and Dhoni, 78 from 79. Kedhar Jadhav added to the scoreboard with his 40. This seemed more than enough clearly.

Now India cannot lose. They hope to win. Let’s see what happens.

For the fourth match between India and West Indies, I am in the mood to experiment a bit. So, my first lineup is going to be traditional safe one.

Kedar Jadhav
Yuvraj Singh
Ajinkya Rahane
Shikhar Dhawan
Virat Kohli
Alzarri Joseph
Ashley Nurse
Miguel Cummins
M.S.Dhoni
Shai Hope
Jason Holder

My experimental lineup has only three regular batsmen. And no Kohli. Yes. I have piled on the bowlers because of the previous match.

Ajinkya Rahane
Yuvraj Singh
Shikhar Dhawan
Miguel Cummins
Devendra Bishoo
Alzarri Joseph
Kuldeep Yadav
R Ashwin
MS Dhoni
Hardik Pandya
Jason Holder

Which one would you want? The trad or the rad?

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 …
