Editor's Pick (Test): England - Australia

First test - Australia won by 10 wickets
Second test - Australia won by 120 runs
Third test - Australia won by an innings and 41 runs


Fourth test tomorrow at the Melbourne Cricket
Ground. A very popular ground as is. With
Australia on a roll, the ground is going to be
supercharged with the joy and the excitement.
Especially with Boxing day happening. The day
after Christmas. It is a public holiday. It is an
unusual name, yes. Even though the series has
been decided, the locals will come to the
stadium in big groups to support their team.
That is the beauty of this game. It will call out
to the true cricket fans, come what may.


Back to cricket. England is hoping not to fall
apart again. They have had a rough season
so far. The question has been raised and is
floating all over the internet though. What
would have happened if the match was taking
place in England.
News. Root said that Wood and Crane were
considered to be in the team. Fast Bowler
Tom Curran will make his test debut. Craig
Overton is injured. After he cracked his rib
in the third test, he has been ruled out. He
will be terribly missed. He did do really well
in what was otherwise considered as a
mediocre performance by the team. The
captain’s gut made the call and pulled in
Tom Curran. Can the gut be wrong? We will
know soon. England wants to add an extra
pace into their bowling attack. End of the day,
tough calls are made. If the captain is right,
he is praised. If it does not work out, he takes
the burden. Not easy being a captain.
Tendulkar will agree. Hence he said he didn’t
want that cap.


England XI: Joe Root (c), Alastair Cook,
Mark Stoneman, James Vince, Dawid Malan,
Chris Woakes, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Moeen Ali,
Tom Curran, Stuart Broad, James Anderson
Australia XI: Steve Smith (c), David Warner,
Cameron Bancroft, Usman Khawaja, Shaun
Marsh, Mitch Marsh, Tim Paine, Pat Cummins,
Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood, Jackson Bird.

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.  Key Points  MI has never won their opener since 2013. This was Chennai's first win against MI in an opener of this T20 League  DRS used in the league for the first time  Bravo : It was a great team effort. I want to dedicate this win to the CSK fan, they have waited long for
