It was a power-packed weekend for sports. Roger Federer created history by winning 6th Wimbledon title and became the only player to win 15 Grand slam titles surpassing the great Pete Sampras (Sham’s all time favorite tennis player) and with last ODI washed out due to rains,India clinched 4 matches one day series by 2-1. This is after a long gap of 7 years that India has won ODI series in Carribean.
After an early exist from T20 world cup Dhoni & Co. toured WI as wounded tigers and certainly wanted to turn the table in their favour this time as WI was one of the side who played spoilt sport for their exist from T20 WC.
With opening pair failed to fire, it was all on middle order especially Dhoni & Yuvraj to shoulder responsibility and they did it with perfection. Yuvraj blasted 131 in first ODI to make India reach a score of 329 to defend and finally won the match, while Dhoni played a fighting knock of 95 in second ODI after India batting collapsed at was struggling at 78-7. He once again showed power with the bat promoting himself at number three in 3rd ODI where it was close win after D/L revised scores.
Dhoni declared Man of the Series.
If people talk of records then this is India’s 5th series win in a row while Dhoni hit 6 (six series wins).

Windia In Kiwiland!!


It took 41 years for Indian’s to conquer the Kiwis in their own back yard. The current team is on the high with Zak as the supreme star in the bowling attack while a solid Gambhir adding assault in the opening slot. The middle order is some thing that has always been a threat to the opponents as worlds most experienced players are marshalling the slot.

With Sachin Tendulkar in supreme form, Dravid in his vintage disciplined form and VVS in his classic touch, it was Dhoni who batted well whenever required and the Harbhajan Singh and Zak adding value to their wicket by dropping anchor by scoring half centuries lower down the order.

We could well have won the test series 2-0 had the rain god not interrupted.Nevertheless 1-0 is still better as long as the series is in our hands,
Jesse Ryder was solely the outstanding player from Kiwi and we are quiet impressed with his Rugby Player like physique. His failure in both the innings of the last test clearly brought down slightest hopes of winning the last test match for the Kiwis.
The Indians have raised the bar and improved their game tremendously. Every time we visit the foreign soils, we are winning at least one test match. The series win would mean a lot to the team as they have been playing consistently well.
Do voice your opinion on your favorite player from the India-New Zealand series.

So here’s Shams n Wags leave from the test matches and just about time to gear up for the biggest entertaining edition of the IPL to begin.
