I ENJOY TEST CRICKET
The first two tests have been absorbing. England were on top at Rajkot and while we won handsomely in Vizag, England can take heart from the way they bowled in India’s second innings. Broad was superb. The next three tests could turn out to be even more absorbing. The conditions in Mohali and Mumbai and even Chennai could help their seamers provided our groundsmen do not...

ASHWIN ASHWIN ASHWIN! And the records keep tumbling. For India’s meanest tweaker, it may seem like just another day at the office but the records are piling up. Now, he’s the 3rd quickest in the history of the game to get to 20 five- wicket hauls, in just 39 tests. Barnes in an unbelievable 25 tests and Grimmett in 37 are the other two.

“In rhythm, I can beat any batsman in the world” says...

MAKE IT COUNT, GAUTI!
It is very likely that Gautam Gambhir will open the Indian innings at Indore with Murali Vijay (provided, of course, that BCCI doesn't carry out its threat of cancelling the ongoing series). Both Rahul and Shikhar are injured and it is unlikely that Shikhar's replacement, Karun Nair, would be chosen over Gauti.

The Indore test assumes great significance for Gauti - if he...

A REAL TEAM (THAT'S BACK AS NO.1).
India won the second test of the three-match series against New Zealand and have reclaimed the number one position in tests from Pakistan. But that to me is not that important.

What is important is that in the two tests played so far, the Indian team has played like a real team. We have not relied on the brilliance of one or two guys; instead, almost all the...

ROHIT IS PLAYING THE INNINGS THAT INDIA WANTS HIM TO PLAY- As a fan you can’t be blamed for feeling schizophrenic when it comes to Rohit. He can frustrate you like he did in the first innings and then he can play with unique ability and more importantly responsibly. In the shorter formats he has always taken the responsibility and played some unbelievable innings but it is in test cricket that...

A TIME TO REJOICE AND A TIME TO REFLECT.
India is going to be playing 13 tests at home this season - 3 against New Zealand, 5 against England, 1 against Bangladesh and 4 against Australia. The campaign has started off well with India winning the Kanpur test comprehensively. I am quite confident that we will prevail over all our opponents during this long season. And that would be a legitimate...

ASHWIN, YOU ARE A BEAUTY! He is the second fastest to get to the 200 mark - 37 tests, Grimmett, the Australian leggie tops the list, followed by the greats like Lillee and Waqar Younis. Bhajji took 46 tests, Kumble 47 and Kapil 50. Stats apart, Ashwin is now beginning to dominate all attacks and may be it is premature to say in all conditions but given the guile and absolute control, and the...

IS 318 ENOUGH?
India ended their first innings at 318, thanks to a breezy, unbeaten 42 by Jadeja. The score, while possibly adequate for an Indian pitch especially when we batted first, is lower than what appeared when Vijay and Pujara were batting. It was quite disappointing that India lost its way from 154/1 to 277/9; one would have expected the middle order to build on the excellent stand...

ROHIT SHOULD MAKE THE LOVE COUNT!
Okay, let's get one thing straight - I like Rohit Sharma. He is, without doubt, incredibly talented and is a delight to watch when in full flight. And he is one of our best players in ODIs and T20; his record testifies to that.

Rohit had a spectacular start to test cricket, scoring two centuries in his first two tests. Since that heady start, he has...

LET'S NOT WRITE OFF NEW ZEALAND IN THE TESTS
Let's face it - it is not easy for teams that have been brought up on bouncy tracks to play test matches in the sub-continent, especially if the pitches are prepared for spinners. When South Africa toured India in 2015/16, they lost the test series 0-3 (one game drawn). Very recently, the Aussies found Herath & Co. too hot to handle and caved in...

WHEN I WAS YOUNG!
Andy.
A GAMBHIR SITUATION.
I have always admired Gauti - his left-handed elegance, his tenacity (I still recall his match saving 137 in 430 balls against New Zealand in 2009), his passion, his equanimity and his leadership qualities.

From Wikipedia: 'He captained the Indian team in six ODIs from late-2010 to late-2011 with India winning all six matches. He played an integral part in India's wins in...

THE WELCOME RETURN OF PUJARA.
Pujara has been in abysmal form in the last few tests and had to face the ignominy of being dropped from the side in West Indies. So his 256* in the mammoth India Blue score of 693/6 declared in the Duleep Trophy finals is surely a relief for him, the team management and the Indian fans.

The Indian team for the 3 tests against New Zealand is to be announced today...

A SIGNIFICANT WIN!
India A won the Quadrangular A-Team One Day Series in Australia beating Australia A by 57 runs.

Batting first, India A scored 266/4 thanks to a 95 by Mandeep Singh and a 61 by captain Manish Pandey. The boys then bundled out the Aussies for 209, Chahal causing the damage amongst the lower order with 4/34.

The win is significant because any win in Australia against...

ENGLAND V PAKISTAN AT NOTTINGHAM!
Highlights of the third ODI between England and Pakistan in which the former scored a record-breaking 444. See the mayhem in just over three and a half minutes.

England tour India this winter to play 5 tests, 3 ODIs and 3 T20 games. Given England's improving performance, we should be in for a challenging series. And a treat.

KEEP AN EYE ON HIM!
Kuldeep has shown great form in the on-going Duleep Trophy tournament. He claimed 9 wickets for India Red against India Green in the inaugural game and has taken 4 of the 5 wickets that have fallen in the India Blue innings in the current India Red v India Blue game.

Many of you may not know this but Kuldeep, according to ESPN Cricinfo started ‘as a fast bowler when he...
