India Vs Pakistan World T20 match today


Highlights of previous T20 world cup India vs Pakistan

This is the match which will be equally interesting as the final of this twenty-twenty world cup tournament. Though there were little showers in the Eden Gardens in the morning, it is expected that we will have a full match. India have won all the previous encounters with Pakistan in the world cup but at the same time they have never defeated Pakistan at this venue. This mean a new history will be created either it will be first time India defeating Pakistan at Eden Gardens OR it's first victory in world cup for Pakistan against India.

Eden garden pitch is good for batting and team batting first have won most of the matches as dew factor comes to play and it makes batting a little difficult. Thus chasing is always a best option here. But can't say what both captains (Dhoni & Afridi) think about this. Thus it'd be interesting to see the toss as well.

3:21 pm: Pakistan to bat first, as they won the toss and elected to bat first. Current score is Pakistan 36/1 in 3.1 overs.

4:04 pm - Pakistan team has got the start they needed. All they need to do is finish the innings well. Given they way they are batting a 180 to 200 runs score is easy to reach. And this would be a very hard target for Bangladesh team to achieve, given the bowling strength of the Pakistan team.

4:18 pm - Pakistan lost the second wicket. Current score Pakistan 134/2 in 13.4 overs.

4:35 pm  - Pakistan lost the third wicket but this isn't making any impact on the scoring rates. They are clsoe to 200 runs now. New batsmen Akmal is also gone. Score 175/4 in 17.5 overs. Remaining 13 balls this Pakistan team need to play carefully not to lose wickets trying to hit boundaries.

4:48 pm - Bangladesh need 202 runs to win and it's very difficult target for them. They have 4 over of Afridi who don't give easy runs. 

World T20 2016 Match Today - India Vs New Zealand


Now when the first round of the ICC world T20 is over and some lucky team managed to join other teams to the super 10 group, the ICC World T20 now has really begun. Now you can see fully crowded stadiums and more heat on and off the ground.

Today is the first match of super 10 and this match is to be played between the host team India and New Zealand. .The match will be played at Nagpur and it starts from 7:30 pm IST (+5:30 GMT). This match is from the team of Group 2. There are 5 team each in group 1 and group 2.  If we take a quick look at the squads then the Indian T20 team looks far stronger than the current New Zealand team. The NZ team is quite inexperienced however there bowling can be the biggest surprise for the strong Indian batting line. Also the IPL exposure is a big plus for team India, making them the favorites not only for today's match but also for the T20 world cup.

We will be posting live updates of the match today here, so just keep refreshing the page ;)

8:45 PM:
Match is in the interesting phase. India has got to a good start and so far they have kept New Zealand batsmen silent not allowing them big boundaries.
Score: NZ 90/6 in 16.4 overs.

Bumrah to bowl the 18th over.

8:49 PM - 100 up for NZ in 18th over.

5 runs in the over of Bumrah. NZ 103/6 in 18 overs.

19th over to be bowled by Jadega. Batsmen just survived a stumping chance.

8:54 PM - If New Zealand somehow manage to get close to 130, this would be a very very competitive score.

Nehra to bowl the last crucial over.

New Zealand 126/7 (20/20 ov)

Innings Break

Indian innings to follow in 20 minutes

Welcome back after the innings break. India has lost a wicket early. The score is Ind 6/1 in 1 over.

9:31 pm - Kapil Dev said during New Zealand Innings that Indian batsmen have not played spinners in good way recently. This seems to be true as Roit Sharma got out to spin bowler in the third over.
Score: Ind 10/2 in 2.2 overs.

Kapil Dev said India lost wickets to spinners a lot recently during New Zealand Innings and it would be great to see how New Zealand spinners bowl today. India lost 3 wicket in 3 over. Score Inda 12/3 in 3 overs.
10:14 pm
Halfway the batting of Indian team, they have lost more than half of the batsmen. Clearly team India is going to lose the match today.

Batsmen to score 6 consecutive sixes

Hitting a six in a cricket match means batsmen is really in good touch and has played the ball really well. What would you say about a batsmen who had 6 consecutive sixers in a match. These is a very rare achievement and only a handful of cricketers has for the ability to do so. Listed below are the batsmen who have scored continuous six sixes in the history of cricket.

Batsmen who hit six sixes in an over world cup match

This is a very rare achievement and the ony batsmen to achieve this is the great opening batsmen of South African cricket team. Yes we are talking about Herschelle Gibbs, he hit six sixes of 6 balls of an over in the world cup 2007. It was the group stage match of world cup played between South Africa and Netherlands. Only few know that one million US Dollars were raised for charity as one of the sponsors was commited to do so if six sixes are hit in the match.

Video of Herschelle Gibbs hitting 6 sixes in an over


Batsmen to hit six sixes in an over of T20 match 

The same year 2007, during the T20 world cup, again 6 sixes were hit in an over. This time the batsmen was Yuvraj Singh from India and the sixes were hit in the over by Stuart Broad  of England.

Video of Yuvraj Singh hitting 6 sixes in an over



Batsmen to hit six consecutive sixes in first class cricket

It was the year of 1968, when first time in the history of cricket six sixes where hit by a batsmen in a single over. The batmen to do so was Sir Garfield Sobers. It was a dramatic over and in one ball of the over fielder caught the ball but touched the boundary ball thus ending as six. It was a game between Glamorgan and Nottinghamshire. Sobers was the captain of the Nottinghamshire and sixes were hit of
Malcolm Nashand fielder to touch the ropes while he took the catch was Roger Davis. 

16 years later the record of Sir Garfield Sobers was broken by Ravi Sastri. It was a Ranji Trophy match between Bombay and Baroda. 


Other batsmen to hit six sixes in an over

Kieron Pollard and Jordan Clark  has also achieved this feat but in lower lever of cricket like the club matches. Still this doesn't devalue the quality of the innings both the batsmen played that day. Hitting six sixes in an over at any level of cricket be it street level to the top level is an proud achievement.

Do you any other batsmen who have achieved this rare target of hitting six sixes in an over. Do share with us.
