ICC World Cup Twenty 20 Starts Today in Sri Lanka

The ICC World Cup Twenty 20 or the ICC World T20 starts in Sri Lanka today.  The event is held every two years.  The inagural event which was held in 2007 in South Africa was won by India.  The BCCI never whole heartedly adopted the format in 2007 and the team that was sent for…

We Are The Champions

The final was well worth staying awake upto 2:30 in the morning.  Not to mention the hilarious tweets.  What a time for Dhoni to play the innings of his lifetime.  The stabilising innings from Gambhir & Virat meant that India didn’t feel the repercussions of losing Tendulkar & Sehwag cheaply. The only silverware missing from…

Its India vs Lanka – Cricket World Cup 2011

To win the cup, you have to beat the best.  Maybe Pakistan wasnt at their best during the semi finals against India at Mohali yesterday.  But you cant ignore the fact that they were the best in their group.  Dropped catches, misfielding, pathetic bowling by Umar Gul and the crawled batting all contributed their part…

The Final Four

3 Asian teams and New Zealand have made it to the semi finals of the ICC World Cup.  No one would have expected such a situation at the begining of the tournament.  Australia was destined to be in the semis and as for South Africa, they have made choking their middle name.  The nail-biting win…

The biggest games of India begins today – Commonwealth Games

The wait is over. The complaints built up (courtesy our incompetent media). A few players stayed away.  When the players actually landed, they were astonished at the amount of misinformation and lies told to them by their own media back home.  Which was partly or fully supplied to them by our own homegrown media. Well,…

With India playing only 2 test matches in the next 11 months, the ranking might not hold if South Africa manage to beat England and take the crown.  Still, its a golden letter day in the history of cricket in India.  For the first time ever, the Indian cricket team takes the crown of being…

Yeh cup kahan jaayega?

2 years ago, Twenty-20 was a novelty. No one had a clue about India’s strengths and weakness in the game.  The young team led by MS Dhoni won the inaugural twenty-20 world cup at South Africa. Two editions of IPL later, all the players in the Indian team are under the radar of the opposition’s…

Who will be the last man standing?

IPL-2 starts with a bang

The second edition of the Indian Premier League started yesterday in South Africa with 2 huge upsets.  Last year’s underperformers, Mumbai Indians beat last year’s runner’s up, Chennai Super Kings. And in the 2nd match of the night, the so called “test team” of the IPL, Bangalore Royal Challengers beat defending champions Rajasthan Royals.  The…

IPL 2nd season bidding

After all the hullabaloo by the self appointed moral police (including Bal Thuggeray) last year, the auction of the players for 2nd season of Indian Premier League (IPL) concluded successfully a while ago. The best thing about the second season of IPL is that the Pakistani players have withdrawn or had their contracts cancelled by…
