Bangladesh v New Zealand Second test Match Live

The first day of second test match between Bangladesh and New Zealand got an exciting start with Bangladesh batsmen maintaining a health run-rate of above 4 runs an over. New Zealand team was also able to pick 5 wickets, 2 of those just came shortly before the tea break. It seemed like the days play would end with another exciting session that would decide if the day one was in favor of Bangladesh or the visitors. However it rained at tea break and the no playing was possible after that. I hope you'd got the chance to see the live score board of the match in case it was a working day for you, else nothing would have stopped a test match fan to watch the test match live on TV.

Thus rain ruined an exciting last session of test match today. Highlight of the day was 95 runs from Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal. Tomorrow match will start half an hour early to make up for the time lost today due to rain. We hope it won't rain tomorrow and we'd got to see an exciting day of test match cricket.

Australia tour of India - T20 match between India Australia

Cricket Australia teams' tour in India starts with the first and only T20 to be played on 10-October at Rajkot. The match will begin at around 7:30 pm IST. After the T20 match the Australian team is to play 7 ODI matches against India.

This time the visiting Australian team is relatively inexperienced and you can take a hint about young blood in the team from the fact that there are only two players in the visiting Australian who have played more than 100 one matches.

However since most the Australian team players were part of IPL and therecently concluded Champions League Twenty Twenty, Indian cricket team would definitely get a hard fight in all the matches. To win a match Indian cricket team must not take this Australian team lightly.

Indian cricket team who has been enjoying the number 1 spot in the ICC cricket rankings might have the chances to loose it in case Australia players do some heroics here.

Best wishes to both the teams for the only T20 match and 7 ODIs that follows later.

Champions League Twenty Twenty semi final match today

Today first semi final of the CLT20 would be played between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals. You can watch the live scoreboard to the match in the scoreboards widget at this blog. Rajasthan Royals team has been undefeated in the Champions League T20 so far and above of this they have won 12 consecutive matches at the venue (Jaipur).

Chennai Super Kings on the other hand lost their previous match to the T&T team. Now CSK needs the magic touch of the captain MS Dhoni to see if they the 13th match at the same venue for the Royals would prove luck to them or not.

Though the batting line of CSK is great their bowling is a major concern and they needs to improve in this area to win the match. Rajasthan Royals on the other hand have a good batting and bowling combination though the batting seems little weaker when compared to CSK.

Toss can play a good role here and team chasing might have some advantage.

My favorites here for this match are Rajasthan Royals as I want them to win and face Mumbai Indians in the final of Champion League so that we can see two legends who are retiring from the T20 format bat for the last time.

Hopefully this will happen.
