Shikhar Dhawan scored another hundred on the Sri Lanka tour yesterday and propelled India to a position where they can think of controlling the test match yet again.
Virat called the toss of the coin right on the third occasion in a row and batting first after that was not the hardest decision in the world to make.
Bangladesh are leading Sri Lanka 1-0 in the three-match ODI series.
They won the first match by 90 runs. This was after they had won their first Test game over the same opponents two weeks ago in Colombo. Bangladesh are now hoping to make history on Tuesday when they won their first series ever against Sri Lanka.
Brett Lee has urged every mom and dad to immediately address any ear related problem that their child suffers from and complains of because the initial ignorance of the problem may result in it getting bigger and getting irreparable eventually.
Lee endorses a company which manufactures hearing machine and recently at an event of the company, he shared a personal experience with the public.
Virat Kohli was still finding his feet in the world of cricket when Chris Gayle joined the Royal Challengers as an injury replacement in 2011.
So far, with all their time playing together for the Indian Premier League, the respect they have for each other has quadrupled.
The Gujarat Lions revealed the chinks in the armoury of the Royal Challengers Bangalore on Tuesday.
Once Virat Kohli was out early, Bangalore was almost caught hopeless which was bizarre because it was a simple chase of 150 odd and the wicket was normal.
It was spinning yes, but, it always does in Bangalore and having played 7 games there, it was not as if the men in Red and Black had no knowledge of that.
Kolkata Knight Riders would be ruing their soft batting execution at Green Park which got them losing their second game back to back and left them in a shaky situation for the playoffs qualification.
The grass on the deck meant the scores of 190-200 were not quite realistic even with the boundaries not situated at a huge distance.
Technique had to play its part while setting up the total for the opposition and Kolkata’s main weapon in that regard was their skipper and highest run getter Gautam Gambhir who had got a half century in the last game too.
Rahul Dravid does not believe there is any technical thing to be sorted out in the batting of Cheteshwar Pujara.
It wasn’t much long before that Pujara used to be one o
f the certainties in the playing XI of India in the test matches.
But, that is not the case anymore. The right hander from Saurashtra is still in the scheme of things for India, but, he is in the reserves now and not a first pick.
The no. 3 slot belongs to Rohit Sharma at the moment.
Pujara is all set to be on the bench in at least the first couple of test matches in Sri Lanka.
Paul Collingwood has emerged as a dark horse in the race of England’s coaching job.
Till yesterday, the name of Jason Gillespie was doing the rounds, but, after he concerns that it might not be a right thing to put an Aussie at helm for an emotional series like the Ashes, Collingwood’s name has come into the frame.
Collingwood might be very young for the post of the head coach of a test team, but, he has worked a little bit with the associate nations.
He was there in Australia-New Zealand as the coach of the Scotland National team during the World Cup.
Ravichandran Ashwin has made a good turnaround in the recent past and most of the experts reckon it has happened because he has decided to start relying more on his original skill i.e. to bowl off spin.
After bursting onto the scene with wonderful performances, Ashwin had faded a little bit as he had tried to bring in more and more variations in his bowling, the carom ball and that delivery in which he used to pause a little bit in his bowling action and then, let the ball go.
