There was consolation everywhere you looked for England. It was in the breathless relief of the Indian team as victory was secured. It was in the records and milestones that fell along the way: England’s highest ever score batting second in a one-day international, the fourth-highest match aggregate in history.
Or in Eoin Morgan’s first century for 18 months, an innings of guts and brawn that took his side to the brink of an unthinkable victory
But the England team has complained to ICC that Indian team has cheated them. Kedhar Jadhav played a brilliant innings in the first ODI and it was Indian team’s strategy to make England forget about the prowess possessed by Dhoni and Yuvi, so that the batting duo can make mockery of the English bowling.
England team is feeling like a student who studied for the chapter named Kedhar Jadhav and thought Dhoni and Yuvi were out of syllabus. But the examiner din’t ask them about Kedhar Jadhav and in turn asked them about something which was out of syllabus. The ICC has promised to look into the matter and the second ODI will be played again if the Indian team is found guilty.
More than eight years after his previous Test match, and four years after his last international, wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel has earned a recall to India’s Test team.
At 17 years and 153 days, he became Test cricket’s youngest wicketkeeper in 2002; now he will be the second-oldest member in the XI if no other change is made to the side that took field in Visakhapatnam.
But the family members of Parthiv Patel are not happy, according to their plan Parthiv had to stand in the ATM queue on 26th November which is the scheduled date for the Ind Eng test match. Parthiv’s family is in serious trouble as they are in serious need of cash and his selection has brought more troubles than cure.
Parthiv has promised that he will not perform well and will get dropped for the fourth test so that he can come back to Ahmedabad and stand in the ATM queue. Some people are even spreading the news that Saha has faked injury to stand in a queue and get some cash for his family in Bengal.
All rounders have been a rare commodity in Indian cricket. Every player who performs decently with the bat as well as the bowl is always compared to the great Kapil Dev.
Irfan Pathan, Ajit Agarkar, Ashwin and even at a point of time Sourav Ganguly were compared to Kapil Dev. The comparison though may sound flattering for the players, it is very harmful for their careers. Irfan Pathan is the best example.
The guy who used to bat well and bowl well, Irfan Pathan, is now a forgotten entity in the cricket circles. He saw fame, failure and frustration at such an early stage that it was impossiple to recover from there. Yesterday one more cricketer was compared to Kapil Dev. Yes, indeed, jayant Yadav the off spinner scored 35 runs and commentators like Sanjay manjrekar started comparing him with Kapil Dev.
Though these are early days for jayant, he should keep his head strong and focus on his cricket rather than being flattered by an average commentator like Sanjay Manjrekar.
Rohit Sharma, the Indian batsman, has been ruled out for a considerable period of time due to an injury that he suffered during the final One-Day International against New Zealand.
He will be assessed in England. In case itis required, he will undergo surgery,” said chief selector MSK Prasad while announcing the squad for the first two Tests against England on Wednesday (November 2)
The reason for the injury is something which is shocking. Everyone knows how less time Rohit spent at the crease during the New Zealand series, so there is no point of him getting injured on the field.
According to our reports, Rohit got injured in his room when he was typing on his laptop while using twitter. His thumb got badly swelled up and that’s the reason he is opting out of the England series. Sometime back we had also reported that Shikhar Dhawan got injured while returning to pavilion from the crease. These strange types of injuries are a surprise even for the doctors.
