Updates from the test cricket

I thought the first test match between Sri Lanks and Pakistan was going to be dull one after Sri Lank got our to a low total and Pakistan declared first innings at the score of 511 thus taking a first innings lead of more than 300 runs.

I thought it would be same display of batting from the Sri Lankan batsmen and they will loss the match most probablt on the first session of day 5. However Kumar Sangakkara score a century and he sill still not out at 161.

With Sri Lankan scoreboard telling 298/5 at Stumps day 4 and Sri Lanka trail by 16 runs with 5 wickets remaining. Now all Sri Lanka need is to bat more sensibly for around 2 sessions tomorrow. However the strength of Pakistan is the bowling despite dropped catches (5 today), poor umpiring they can create wickets anytime for the side.

Lets see how game progresses tomorrow.

One the other hand Bangladesh one ot best starts the team had again West Indies and have scored 255 runs for the loss of 4 wickets on day 1.

Cricket Updates & Preview of third One Day Match India Vs England

It was nice to see ex-captain Ricky Ponting opening batting for Australia along with Michael Hussey in the first ODI of the one day international cricket match series between South Africa & Australia. Ricky Ponting is playing a good knock at the position he rarely plays and currently batting not out at 61 with Australian score board saying 157/2 in 26 overs.

And the latest update is that Ponting got out at 63 runs, will update more about this live match later. Just keep and eye over scoreboard.

Sri Lanka on the other hand is on back foot after a brilliant bowling by Pakistan bowlers on first day and very brilliant batting by Pakistan batsmen on second day.

Now coming to India vs England ODI series, India is already leading the series 2-0 and may be looking to win the series in Mohali tomorrow but Mohali pitch has something to offer for quick bowlers thus if England win the toss they can keep the series alive.

Cricket Updates & Preview of Second One Day Match India Vs England

Its a memorable match when you win by the batting efforts of batsmen number 8 & 9 however its very disappointing when you loose after picking 8 wickets and there are still around 60+ runs required by the opposition in a twenty twenty match. This is the beauty of the twenty twenty cricket, any player can turn to be a match winner. Same was the story of second T20 match between Australia and South Africa.

South Africa won the second T20 match and thus leveling the T20 match series 1-1. However the both team will now play each other in the 5 match one day series followed by 2 test matches. Below are the fixtures for the same:

Bangladesh Vs West Indies ODI series: Though Bangladesh managed to score 200+ runs are loosing 3 wickets for less than 5 runs but that score wasn't enough and they lost the match along with the series. Bangladesh is now 2-0 behind in the 3 match series and the last match on 18 i sthe one they can play for a consolidation win and to go positive into the test match series against West Indies.

India Vs England 2nd ODI: Though India won the first one day match by a big margin there is still a long way to go in the series and England can bounce back any time. One thing is guaranteed if England didn;t manage to win the second ODI cricket match tomorrow at Delhi, then the series lost is impossible to save.

Just wait and watch the live score action tomorrow, hopefully we will got to see a great match here.

Series Live Scores - India Vs England First ODI

After defeating India at their home page now its England turns to prove that they can do the same in India as well. However England was defeated 5-o in the previous series against India in India. But a positive point for England is that Indian team is still depleted one due to the injuries and fitness issues.

For India Gautam Gambhir makes a come back to the side thus opening issues seems to be resolves to some extent. Indian team also have the opportunity to enhance the ICC ODI rankings if they beat England in the series. Current world champions are at number 4 in the rankings and just one point behind 3rd ranked England team.

England has to win this series and the test series in India to prove that they really belong to the number one position. A defeat here means there is still a long way to go for England to be called the world champion in tests and ODIs.

Mumbai Indians Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore @ Nokia Champions League T20 Finals 2011

As predicted in my last post Will it be RCB vs MI or a foreign team in Champions League finals,
is was once again one man show for Mumbai Indians by L. Malinga, he once again won the match single handily for the Mumbai Indians team. Both the teams faced each other in the semi finals of IPL this year as well, which was won by RCB team.

Thus its time for Mumbai team to take the revenge of IPL semi finals defeat and for RCB its a chance to achieve but they were unable to in the IPL.

Now coming to the finals to be played today, you can catch all the live updates of the match online. It'd be interesting contest between Malinga & Gayle and I am 100% sure the battle between these two will be the decider for this match. Its just around 12 hours wait to catch the live action of the finals. Keep reading.

Will it be RCB vs MI or a foreign team in Champions League finals

Royal Challengers Banglalore made it to the finals of the T20 Champions league and during this journey they chased score of 200+ amazingly twice in the series. Thus they are now strong contender to win the finals. Selecting Chris Gayle in the team has changes the RCB teams fortunes dramatically. Chris Gayle not only helped team enter the finals of IPL this year but he also contributed to the journey to the finals of Champions League. And I am sure if Gayle keeps his form in finals this years Champions are the Royal Challengers.

Now second semi final of the tournament is between two unlikely team Mumbai Indian who strongly rely on Lasith Malinga, who is the only player who can single handily guide the team to victory, other Mumbai Indians team is most likely the injury hit Indain cricket team.

Let see who wins the semi final between Mumbai Indians and Somerset to take RCB in finals.

England Team Arrives in India & Champions League T20 Matches Update



England team arrived in India and this team is now the number 1 ranked in ICC test rankings also the team is on a high as they have not let India win a single game in last series in England. Indian team was humiliated like its not a test playing team but a contracted nation of ICC.

England defeated India 4-0 in test, won the only T20 match in which we saw the debut and retirement of Rahul Dravid fr4om the T20s. Also they won the 5 match ODI series 3-0. Now the challenge for England to win the series here in India as well and if they manage to do so then in no doubt they will remain in the top of ICC rankings no matter how many matches they play.

For Indian cricket team there is no need to worry as they already had the excuse to unfit players and one statement for MS Dhoni in post match ceremony that we are playing without key players and its difficult to win matches under such circumstances.

This time there isn't much excitement about Champions league T20 and the updates from the series is that Mumbai Indians, New South Wales, team has qualifies for the semi finals of the tournament whereas the defending champions Chennai Super Kings are out of the tournament with three defeats.
