Every task is easier said than done whether it be scoring a century or taking a five wicket haul.It becomes much more difficult when you are playing in away conditions. If any batsmen is to be called great then he has to prove his abilities in SENA(south africa,england,new zealand,australia) and for players of these countries it will be playing good in asia.Continue reading “ART OF BATTING OVERSEAS”
IND VS AUS FIRST TEST REVIEW
So finally the most waited test series of the year is nearly over and the first test match between ind vs aus is all about to start from 6 dec. So let discuss is there is any possibility for the indian cricket team this time or this also they will repeat the history in aus.
With the exclusion of allrounder hardik pandya from the squad , indian cricket team may find themself in a little bit of trouble as they have no other fast bowling allrounder .
This may change the combination of the team little bit as they may now go with 7 specialist batsman and 4 specialist bowler because of the fact that opponent have some serious fast bowlers so ind might go with full batting resource against them but as we say that for gaining something we have to lost something so ind may leave one bowler and this will make thier bowling little bit weaker as they have no other specialist allrounder in the team except ashwin.
As far as the latest update from australia prithwi shaw has hurt his ankle due to which he is out of the first test match in adelade . This will also give a huge blow to ind as tge youngster was in fine form giving some hope to ind opening . But this incident may prove as a blessing in disguise for murli vijay as the former was left out of the team in eng and was finding his place in the team , so this may be his chance and he should grab it with both hands.
So ind may go with 7 specialist batsman as follows.
Ind bowling attack
After batting let us discuss about ind bowling attack. With no doubt in mind we all know that this is the best ind bowling lineup we have ever had.
With a bunch of fast bowlers ind will go with 3 fast bowlers.
With no doubt in mind bumrah was the first one to pickup as he is the go to bowler for the ind cricket team in the past few years .Ind the other two option india might go with ishant sharma with the experience he has in australia and another bowler might be moh. Shami due the seam movement and the speed he has ,he can become lethal on his day.
Now what about the fourth bowler , we all knew that 90per of the chance is that they will go with ashwin but with kuldeep yadav in the squad i think they should give him a chance because of the variation he bring in his bowling , he is becoming impossible to play for the batsman .I know that he was given one chance in eng at lords but mind you that the wicket was green and there was no help for the spinners even the spinners from eng(adil rashid) has not got a single over to bowl so we can’ t judge kuldeep on the basis of that wicket.As far i know the pitch in adelade will help the spinners definitely more that pitch in lords.
But the reason to pick ashwin may be his batting which is definitely good from kuldeep.But if ind have to win this series they have to attack the aus inexperience batsman and for that kuldeep will be right option.so the playing eleven for the 1 match will be
Imagine a scene as a batsmen, you are batting on a pitch that is doing much of everything,ball moving both ways and coming at 140+ km/hr. That’s not it, you are surrounded by fielders all over;three to four behind the stumps,one to two fielders near your shouting continuously to decrease your concentration level and others at point,gully. This is test cricket for you.Continue reading “SOUL OF CRICKET”
As the tagline on sony channel ads say ‘choddna nhi’,we can believe that this is going to be an intense battle as always been the case.Whenever we heard about india vs australia ,it reminds us of the various incidents which has forced us to think that is really a cricket a gentleman’s game?So lets talk about this breath-taking,ferocious,long-age rivalry.
The most shocking thing for me to see in cricket in the last 2-3 years is seeing the decline of Australian cricket team..
So i was thinking that what may be the reason for their sudden decline and while thinking that i came across some points which i thought to discuss with my cricket fans
1. Ban on Smith and Warner
All of you who takes interest in cricket must have heard about the ball tampering incident of aussies against proteas(south africa)due to which the two main pillars of australian cricket team shattered down,probably that was the beginning of the decline of aussies.
