The Controversial PSL Finale

Those who are calling for the international boards around the world to agree for the tour of Pakistan on the basis of the fact that no casualties occurred during the PSL finale are just being illogical and nothing else. There is a difference between one match and the whole tour. The number of soldiers that were placed on duty in Lahore on that particular day, will it be possible for the Pakistani government to offer the services of as many soldiers on every day of the tour of an international team? An international tour is generally longer than a month, Read More


HUSSEY IMPRESSED BY AMIR AFTER RETURN FROM BAN

Going back to 2009, Muhammad Amir had arrived on the Australian shores, where he took on a much different side and made an outstanding impression on both his team mates and the crowd. However, a year later, that was 2010, Amir was among three Pakistani players convicted of spot fixing in the series as he deliberately bowled no-balls to specific points in the match. This thus led to a suspension being placed on him by the ICC to last for five years. He was also sent to jail by the English Judges having been found guilty of indulging in corrupt Read More


Reverse Sweep Dismissals Brings lots of criticism

Even though this is an era where reverse sweep has almost become a text book shot, a dismissal on a reverse sweep attempt still invites criticism. It’s simply because while a reverse sweep can give you a guaranteed four if you get it right, you, at the same time, are also putting your wicket on the line while making that attempt. The old man in the Australian batting line up Adam Voges, who is a disciplined batter, was being really gritty on Day 2 at Galle, keeping the on song Dilruwan Perera at bay. But, something happened to the Western Read More


Australian team rolled down to No.8 ranking

For the first time in many, many years, an Australian team is at no. 8 in the World rankings while walking into a World tournament. Yes, can you believe it? The men in yellow at this point of time are the 8th ranked team in the world in twenty 20 format. Well, their fans might say they don’t often appear in the international twenty 20 games and instead play more of the other formats of the game and that’s actually right. But, what’s also right is that whenever Australia plays the twenty 20 games at the international level, they don’t Read More


Steven Smith has showered praise on his retiring teammate

Steven Smith, the captain of the Australian test and One Day International team, has showered praise on his retiring teammate and one of the greatest fast bowlers of all time, Mitchell Johnson, saying that when the Queenslander was at his best, it was nightmarish for any batsman in the world to handle him. Johnson would no longer be featuring in Australian jersey as he has made the sudden decision to walk away from the international scenes after a period of 12 months or so where he has been largely out of form. Johnson had been at his peak during the Read More


Steve Smith would not be batting one down in the upcoming test

Steve Smith would not be batting one down in the upcoming test series against the arch rivals New Zealand. He would demote himself to no. 4 to ensure the middle order contains some experience in the absence of Michael Clarke and Shane Watson both of whom bid adieu to red ball Cricket post the Ashes defeat earlier this year. Not too many former players are convinced with this decision of Smith. They reckon there’s no point for the Aussie skipper to make any shuffling as far as his batting position is concerned. The most technically equipped player in the line Read More


CM Gautam reckons spending a bit of time with Michael Hussey during his stint at Mumbai Indians last year helped

CM Gautam reckons spending a bit of time with Michael Hussey during his stint at Mumbai Indians last year helped him improve his batting especially in the shortest form of the game. Hussey played for Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League for just a solitary season i.e. in 2014 before being released. He did not feature in Mumbai’s playing XI that much during that season, but, he was always up for mentoring the young players during the practice sessions, imparting his knowledge to them and according to Gautam, quite a few guys including him got benefitted from that. In Read More
