Sehwag and the record breaking run-fest

The third day of the test between India and South Africa saw a lot of records being broken. I’ve compiled a list of the records that were broken, and also compiled some useful facts. Third Fastest Double Century Sehwag scored his double century in 194 balls, the third fastest ever. He now has the second […]

The Future of Australian Cricket

Australia maybe have been a champion need for the past decade however once you are at the top of the mountain there is nowhere to go but down. India has shown this by beating Australia consistently this year in Twenty20 games, at home in India and in the CB Series at Australia. South Africa is […]

Thoughts on the IPL Draft

Today morning there was the first ever IPL draft. IPL the Twenty20, corporate version of cricket. There was a lot of bidding going on the final results of which you can view here. On the overall process: All players were divided into categories. These categories were created depending on the base price for every player. […]

Bob Woolmer Murdered

Jamaican Police are now saying Bob Woolmer was murdered. He was strangled and his death was a result of asphyxiation. This may be related to Pakistan’s loss to Ireland, but I keep thinking no one would be so idiotic to kill someone over a game. This may have to do with ICC”s Anti-Corruption investigation or […]

A High Price for Defeat?

Ireland beat Pakistan on Saturday – their first International win. After a loss to the West Indies and Ireland, Pakistan are out of the World Cup. They seem to have paid a very high price for their loss. Angry fans are calling for the arrest of Bob Woolmer and captain Inzamam-ul-Haq. In Inzamam’s hometown of […]

The Ganguly Effect

IndiaTimes has an article on what it calls the ‘Ganguly Effect’. Sourav Ganguly took his place for granted in the Indian team, he was subsequently released from the captaincy role and then dropped… for a year. Sehwag and Irfan Pathan merited the same treatment after the South African series. Sehwag was in atrocious form, single […]

Cricket: Anil Kumble v/s Tailenders

India’s always had problems with tailend batsmen in my opinion. Some idiotic tailender always manages to score a quick few runs against India, r dig in for a long time and prolong partnerships. However not when Anil Kumble is around. He is one bowler who quickly gets rid of tailenders, and I like him for that. […]

Ganguly, Gambhir In. Laxman new Vice Captain

Just yesterday I blogged about the state of Indian cricket and now the selectors made a couple of good moves in their selection process for the test team. They brought back Sourav Ganguly after a 10 month break from Test cricket to lend much needed experience to the Test team. I’m pretty sure he will […]

Indian Cricket : Painful to Watch

Another game and yet another dismal failure from the Indian Cricket Team. Indian batting has been disappointing over the past couple of months – correction: since Greg Chappell’s introduction as coach. Greg Chappell has over-experimented and screwed up the Indian team. Sure, he is responsible for the “growth” of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Irfan Pathan, […]
