In the midst of the Swine flue where the chances of the tour being called off was a possibility, we head towards Sabina Park-Kingston for a wonderful ODI series between India and West Indies. There is news about the sad demise of king of Pop Michael Jackson.Our sincere tribute to MJ.
India would be playing with out some of the star players yet Gayle has his apprehensions against the Indians as he strongly believes that on a given day, any player can change the course of the play for India. Hope that our player creates havoc for Gayle and Co. It has been sorts of comeback for Aashish Nehra afer a long time courtesy injury to Zaheer. While we have a look at one of the videos where Dhoni had dropped a sitter on Nehra’s bowling, there was a serious piece of thought being given by Nehra to Dhoni. MS was mere a wicketkeeper that time around. If one were to see that video again, Nehra getting picked in the Indian squad would be a far off possibility as Ms is now a captain. Strangely, Nehra has never been dropped due to bad performance. His inability to stay fit through out the series has always worked against him, resulting into bring dropped.
Good time for Abhishek Nayar to show his skills as he had demonstrated while playing for Mumbai Indians. He is a classic left hander who can do both job attack and hold the fort when ever required.
Apart from the Calypso king Gayle, the player to be watched out is Dwayne Bravo. If one bravo was not enough, there’s one more to join the party, yes Darren Bravo, Dwayne’s brother. We haven’t seen the exploits of the debutant Darren yet, so let’s see what he has got under his head.
So let’s enjoy in the series in Calypso style – Ho la la la la lu le yo!!
After days of having a go at each others team, we are back united to support our ‘Men in Blue’ as we inch closer towards the second edition of the ICC T20 World Cup in England.
The irony of the fact is that none of the top senior player of Indian Team would feature in the T20 World Cup even though they played instrumental role in the season 2 of IPL. This holds true in case of Australia as well as both Haydos and Gilly, the top run getters in the IPL have already retired.
It was mixed bag for us as far as practice matches goes with one win and one loss. Strange fact is that India hasn’t won any T20 game against New Zealand while against Pakistan hasn’t lost any world cup match (all formats).
It’s going to be a happy headache for the selectors to pick the team as the bench strength is very strong and all youngsters raring to go. Rohit, Gambhir, Jadeja has shown their shine with bat in practice matches while Ishant, RP and Ojha need to carry their form with ball from IPL to this tournament.
With India playing as defending champions..there’s nothing to defend. “Yeh Cup Kahin Nahin Jayega.”
