Champions even after losing on the field

It was a moment of joy for the Bangladeshi cricket fans in Dhaka when Bangladesh recorded their maiden ODI series win against Pakistan by registering their second win in the three match series. One could see the joy on the face of the stand-in skipper Shakib Al-Hassan after the accomplishment.

Bleaguered England Cricket aim to get back to past glories

The English cricket team has endured a tumultuous few months. Ever since Mitchell Johnson steamed in at the Gabba and destroyed the English top order in that fateful morning in the first Ashes test, something hasn’t been quite right with them. Just wColin Graveshen it looked like the scars of the Ashes had healed with a thumping victory over India at home, a disastrous world cup showed English cricket in grim light again. The change at the helm of the ECB hasn’t helped either. The incoming chairman Colin Graves has openly contradicted the previous stance that Kevin Pietersen would not be considered for selection. This has led to Pietersen cancelling his IPL contract and rejoin Surrey in a bid to regain his place in the English team. Quite what will happen if Pietersen’s batting starts demanding selection, only time will tell. The undoubted friction that comes with him returning to a side captained by Alastair Cook won’t help matters either. It is believed that Cook played a key part in Pietersen’s sacking after the Ashes. The problem arises due to the fact that Cook has not been among the runs for over a year now and fans are clamouring for the inclusion of Pietersen even if it meant Cook being out of the side. It is quite a pity that it has come to this, as both batsmen sit atop the list of highest ever run scorers for England in tests. read more
