Editor’s Pick(Test):India - Sri Lanka

The third match and final test match between India and Sri Lanka is here. India lead the series as of now - 2-0. Indian Captain and new coach Ravi Shastri are all smiles. And why not? The men in blue could be the First Indian Team to complete a whitewash and could defeat the lions in their den. That is really something. Another vital stats - Virat Kohli and team have six 600+ totals in tests. That is the most by any team under the same captain. Also, if India win this test, they win nine tests in the island. This will be the most by any visiting side.
In the second test match, C Pujara and A Rahane hit centuries. In reply to their first innings of 622, Sri Lanka managed only 183. Folow-on ensued. Sri Lanka was sent to bat again. They fell short. India won by an innings and 53 runs. That was truly below-par performance by Sri Lanka. They need to pull their socks up and hit back.

Blog Time : Ashes to Ashes

If anything comes close to the eccentric hype that takes place during India-Pakistan series, it is the Ashes. That is not the only similarity. This tournament is just as personal. The phrase ‘let’s go to the mattresses’ is taken very seriously during this tournament. That is seen if you take a look at how the name came about in the very first place.

THE NAME The first match between the two teams - England and Australia - took place in Melbourne, Australia in 1877. The legend of the Ashes began in 1882, after the ninth test. Australia toured England. It was a brilliant match. A match that Australia won on the English Soil. A match they almost lost. Dead silence took over the stadium. They could not believe their team had just lost to a colony on home soil.


On 2 September a celebrated mock obituary, written by Reginald Shirley Brooks, appeared in The Sporting Times. It read: In Affectionate Remembrance of ENGLISH CRICKET, which died at the Oval on 29 August 1882, Deeply lamented by a large…

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Bangladesh

The tournament has reached a point that we all love. An exciting point where we still do not know who the finalists are. With just two matches to go and berth still wide open; the rest of the Nidahas tournament looks to be just as thrilling.
If India wins, India books a seat in the finals. If Bangladesh wins, the team takes the second place on the points table (or the first depending on the NRR) So while India should aim to win, an eye should be kept on the run rate at all times. Weather looks dicey as well. It might rain. D&L are prepared as well. Let’s also be. Picking a lineup at a rainy time is crucial. I would pick five batsmen to support a good score and a high run rate. With the batsmen of both teams playing rather well, you will have to pick carefully. Pick the more consistent ones. Bangladesh The team is on a high after the wins. The top five batsmen have clicked taking the team to a whole new level. The bowlers need to keep up with a more consistent line and length. India W…
