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. Not a long while ago, it was the same Bangladeshi team who were left with tears after the World Cup exit following a herculean group stage effort. The players have never been shy of showing their emotions; as the adage goes, real men do not hide their emotions. And on most occasions, these champions win hearts despite being on the losing side. Here is a total recall of some of the greatest moments of sporting history when the men couldn’t control their emotions. read more

Was IPL started to help Young talents?

The 8th edition of IPL yet again saw a string of interesting nail biting last over finishes, which would often make you think that they have scripted the play to end on the last ball. But let us not speculate anything. The league has had its dose of match fixers and tax frauds.ipl-wallpapers read more

David vs Goliath: The plight of the minnows of Cricket

As New Zealand and Australia pulled up their socks and locked horns with each other in the final, the main question according to me was not who was going to take the much coveted trophy but my concern was regarding a controversial decision taken by the ICC, which has decided to limit the participation of the so called “minnows” or in other words associates to only two from the next ODI world cup in 2019. This decision taken from Dubai has created lot of hue and cry regarding the motives of the world cricket’s governing body. read more

The Sangakkara way

It was outside the off and he recognized it was in the driving area, what followed next was something like this. Led by front shoulder into the shot he took a full stride towards the pitch of the ball, bent down a little to adjust his body weight to transfer it into the front foot, his bat came down from slip keeping it as close to his pad as possible, he kept his elbow high and bat straight (The makers were proud of the complete visibility of their logo), he lent forward a little more (in perfectly rehearsed manner), the bat seemed like just kissing the ball, which to play its part in the whole act raced away all along the carpet to the boundary. The follow through was majestic (and natural). Over his 15 years international career where Sangakkara has struck 3001 boundaries many have followed the above routine. He was unique, not because the way he batted, not because the way he kept wicket, not because the way he handled his troops when in command, but because of the fact that all this traits came in a package. An excellent wicket keeper who was the mainstay of his team’s batting for over one and half decades, and one of the most important brains behind the success of his nation in international cricket post Arjuna Ranatunga era. And yes there were occasional cover drives which mesmerized the age-old purists and the modern day T20 loving youth alike.Sri-Lankan-cricketer-Kumar-Sangakkara-leaves-the-field-after-being-dismissed-at-221-runs-during-the-fourth-day-of-the-opening-Test-match-between-Sri-Lanka-and-Pakistan2 read more

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
