A century at Lords has already made him special. Talking about India’s form, the series in Zimbabe was a series to forget. The seniors are back in the team, so lets hope for a explosive start. It will be good opportunity for Saurabh Tiwari to show his exploits with the bat for team India. He has already impressed everyone with his performance for Mumbai Indians. The match to watch out is on Saturday- 19th June 10 as India take on their arch rival Pakistan.
So while everyone is glued to Football World Cup, lets stay tuned to Cricket as well.
Time and again Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar has shown his class. Be it for Team India or be it for Mumbai Indians, he has always played a pivotal role for his team. He is a perfect role model. Even in yesterdays match ( 11th April 10) , he took over from where he had left in the last match and made sure that he steered his side right into the semifinals. Mumbai Indians is the only side who is comfortable in the semis.With yet another half century to his name, he has already shown that he belongs to the top with the Orange cap and he is on the peak of the career.About time to call him the “Sultan of Cricket” Keep making those half centuries and Keep winning Mumbai Indians.
It was Shams Vs Wags yet again yesterday( 6th April 2010) where CSK took on Mumbai Indians at their home ground in Chepauk. It was an absorbing day at Chepauk and the same was seen in the match . Batting first, CSK made 165, while MI managed only 149 in thier quota of 20 overs.
In the first match, MI defeated CSK easily at Brabourne. So both the teams have a win against each other at their own back yard.
All we have to say is that for Shams and Wags, the scores are leveled, both on the ground and off the ground as well. Stay tuned for the IPL
One team that’s playing Royally besides Mumbai Indians are Rajasthan Royals. The success of the team lies in the formula of the Spin whiz captain cum coach Sharne Warne and the Tank from Baroda- Yusuf Pathan. Lets see him live in action- For a change not for batting but doing a commercial.
We are just a day away from what one would call it as the Father of Entertaining Cricket Tournament. All roads will lead to DY Patil Cricket Stadium on Friday the 12th as its going to accommodate thousands of cricket fans for the inaugural match on Excitement is in the air as IPL has returned to India and what better ground to start with than DY Patil. Its my (Wags) favorite ground as I have experienced the first IPL match that was allotted to this ground and I have lots of memories associated with this very ground.. I still remember Adam Gilchrist and Rahul Dravid talking about the standards of the ground.Every time I pass this ground, automatically my hand reaches out to my head and salutes the ground. The first match is between KKR and Deccan Chargers and despite the home team- Mumbai Indians is not featuring in the first Match; the interest level would not go down. I am all set to watch the Inaugural match. Shams is in a way sad that he could not join me for the match, but will be happy that atleast I am able to make it there.So Mumbai- See you there!!
