India v Sri Lanka, 2nd Test, Kanpur, day 4

After giving Sri Lanka follow on India is on the threshhold of the vistory and take 1-0 lead in the series. Sri Lank still trail by 356 runs and 2 days play is remaining yet. Saddest part for Sri Lanka is they hav already lost 4 wickets at the score of 57 runs. I am pretty sure the match will survive till lunch only.

Thus cricket loves can also enjoy other matches being played i.e.:
Australia v West Indies, 1st Test, Brisbane, 1st day - Australia 5 for 322 (Katich 92, Hussey 66, Ponting 55) v West Indies

New Zealand v Pakistan, 1st Test, Dunedin, 3rd day - Pakistan 307 for 8 (Umar 129, Kamran Akmal 82, Bond 4-93, Martin 2-52) trail New Zealand 429 (Vettori 99, Taylor 94, McCullum 78, Asif 4-108) by 122 runs

India v Sri Lanka, 2nd Test, Kanpur, day 3

A good spell from Herath who took 5 wickets giving 121 runs helped Sri Lanka restrict team India from reashin 700 runs still642 runs is a good total and by the end od second day visitors are trailing by 576 runs and have 9 wickets in hand. On the day third pitch is almost a great one to bowl for spinners and I am sure Harbhajan, Ojha, and part time bowlers like sachin, sehag will do the magic for India.

I am predicting a follow on fro Sri Lanka today.

Let see whats on the wickets today.

India v Sri Lanka, 2nd Test, Kanpur, second day

India had piled 417 runs for the lost of 2 wickets and if India can score at a fast run rate tomorrow chances are there India will definitely win this test match. India have lost both the openers Sehwag and Gambhir both of them score centuries. Now day second will be intersting to see if Sachin can achieve another milestone of 13000 runs in test cricket.I wonder every match and inning he plays got to be a milestone.

If India manage o score 750 runs plus then all thing ill be on Indian bowlers specially the spinners as this pitch seem to start turning from day 3.

will keep you updated :)

India v Sri Lanka, 2nd Test, Kanpur - Green Park Stadium

Sri Lanka missed a chance to create history in the first test match of the series and the match ended in draw. However match ending in draw was of the fact that both teams played in secured way. Had it been match played against opponents like aussies and pakis match may have other results.

Match is about to begin few hours from now and its likely that Sri Lanka can play Ajantha Mendis in the second test match as Indian batsmen have struggled against this spinner in the past.

About Greenpark stadium Kanpur - India have never lost any test match at green park since 1983.

India Vs Sri Lanka Test Match Series

Sri Lanka are looking in stron position currently trailing by only 132 runs nad 7 wickets remaining in the 1st innings on the day third of first test match. Bad thing for Indian bowlers is that they can't have new ball till next 7 overs and after that there will hardly anythig left in the wicket to take advantage. Chances are there that wicket may turn and help spinners even then India will be on back foot given the Sri Lanka teams spin attack.

Herein I only see to results of this test match either a draw or Sri Lanka winningthe test.

India Vs Australia Series updates

7 matches series is tied ar 2-2 wins each for India and Australia. Indian team have been pulled to back seat by Australia who defeated the favorites for Mohali one day match in a low scoring encounter. Good news for team India is that the consistent performer in every format of the game batsmen Gautam Gambhir has been declared fit for tomorrows match at Hyderabad. Whereas Australian team is still worried about the injuries.

Probable players for tomorrows match from both the team can be as follows:

Australia possible playing 11: 1 Shane Watson, 2 Shaun Marsh, 3 Ricky Ponting (capt.), 4 Michael Hussey, 5 Cameron White, 6 Adam Voges, 7 Graham Manou (wk), 8 Mitchell Johnson, 9 Nathan Hauritz, 10 Ben Hilfenhaus, 11 Doug Bollinger.

India possible playing 11: 1 Virender Sehwag, 2 Sachin Tendulkar, 3 Gautam Gambhir, 4 Yuvraj Singh, 5 MS Dhoni (capt./wk), 6 Suresh Raina, 7 Ravindra Jadeja, 8 Harbhajan Singh, 9 Praveen Kumar, 10 Ishant Sharma, 11 Ashish Nehra.

Pitch report forecast: Hyderabad pitch is loved by batsmen its pretty flat pitch and ball really comes to bat. Also as in the southern part of India due factor is less thus toss will not play any major role in the match results.

Facts & Stats:
1. Rajiv Gandhi Stadium Hyderabad has not been so lucky to Indian crickets team. India has lost the two previous games to South Africa in 2005-06 and Australia in 2007-08.
2. Yuvraj Singh has score centuries in both those matches.
3. Sachin Tendulkar is 7 runs short for scoring 17000 runs in one day internationals.

Before signing off for today posting few wallpapers for you. Enjoy!!


Sehwag has good starts in the matches but unable to convert in big scores.

Sachin was unlucky once again to be given out by umpire

Sachin Tendulkar - I will score 17K runs tomorrow.
Bhajji good batting in the series but bowling lacking the fire.

Team India practicing.

India Vs Australia - Punjab Cricket Staduim Mohali Match

Match is being played here at PCA stadium Phaise 9 Mohali. India won the toss and elected to field first and so far it seems Indian bowlers have done there task by restricting Australia to a moderate score of 250.

Interesting thing here to watch out would be will Sachin Tendulkar be able to reach the score of 17000 runs in ODI remember that it was the same venue when Sachin broke the Brian Lara record of maximum number of runs in test matches and that game was also against Australia. Same venue same opponent will Sachin be able to repeat the history or say create history.

Indian fielding or we can say Australian runing between the wickets was poor as indina fielder manager to run out 4 Australian batsmen.

Now lets watch Indian run chase.
