The Board of Control for Cricket in India has announced the Indian ODI team which will play a 3 One Day Series against the Australians in Kochi, Vishakapatnam and Goa.

This bomb-shell from the Deccan has been one of the best player that the Indian side has had ever since. He is mainly known for his stroke play and leg glance. One of his favorite rivals who he would love to play against are the Aussies. We cannot forget any of the innings that he played against this Kangaroos. Read the rest of this entry
TEAM INDIA IN COLOURS
Here come the talented men in blue,
In appreciation my whistle blew, Read the rest of this entry
Even though India lost Yesterday’s match, no one from the Indian side was sad. Thats because there was no Normal players in the team.
DK, VIjay, Kohli, Rohit, Dhoni, Yusuf, Raina, Jadeja, Sree, Tyagi and Mithun were yesterday’s 11 on the field.
No Sach, Viru, Gauti, Yuvi, Bhajji, Ashish, Praveen and Zak.
So it was a real test for the newbies and other players to cement their places in the team for the World Cup next year.
With major players missing out, the bench strength was tested and it really proved to be weak.
The bowling department struggled especially the newbies Tyagi and Mithun went wicket less. Sree too did not bowl like the senior in the bowling department.
India should test out different opening pairs if the trio of Gambhir, Sehwag and Sachin misses out. Yes, the openers also were tested it proved a failure. Vijay did not capitalize on his start, DK perished soon.
The boys in the middle order were too tested as the openers were back in the hut soon. Rohit and Virat put on a good partnership but did not make it into centuries.
There was a controversy on Rohit’s selection because of his poor run. But, he made an effort to cement his place but was not successful enough. When he was about to make a fifty, he try some cheeky shots to lose his wicket.
Even Yusuf Pathan was not a big hit in the tournament. One benefit of him is that he can hit far and his strike rate is more than 80. But the problem is he cannot stay for longer time.
When he is good touch hitting sixes and fours or had the right start, he tries to hit more and more runs, then gets out.
So, backup for the team is very weak. The same method should be followed for the upcoming Sri Lanka series in August and more lads should be sent to the Island.
The King of Sixes is doubtful for the first ODI to be held tomorrow in Rajkot. He has injured his finger while fielding in the second T in Mohali a day back. Will he play or not will be decided by Niranjan Shah after looking at his report submitted by the orthopedic surgeon.
“Yuvraj seems to have suffered a hairline fracture on his little finger and the team management is hopeful he will be able to play the first ODI at Rajkot on Tuesday,” BCCI sources said.
LETS HOPE HE PLAYS…!!!
