By admin | | 0 Comments |


Ahead of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League, the Kings XI Punjab franchise have changed their name to Punjab Kings and will be called by their new name in the upcoming IPL auction. The franchise is even considering a grand 're-launch' with the new name in a couple of days in Mumbai.Kings XI Punjab have been a part of the Indian Premier League for 13 years now but barring 2014, when they reached the final, success has been elusive. They have been one of the most active traders as well as buyers in the auction window but that hasn't materialized to success over the years. Now, they are set to change their name.Kings XI Punjab, from now on, will be known as Punjab Kings and a formal communication has been made to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Cricbuzz reported that the approval has also been obtained.Even though no owner or an official of the franchise has stated any reason behind the planned transformation few KXIP officials confirmed the name change, which is, in fact, used in a recent internal communication by the BCCI.The Mohit Burman-Preity Zinta-Ness Wadia-owned side is planning a grand 're-launch' in a couple of days in Mumbai, ahead of the February 18 auction that will take place in Chennai. The KL Rahul-led franchise will turn up at the auction in Chennai as Punjab Kings.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IPL 2021 Auction | Kings XI Punjab – Dream, realistic, wildcard and suggested buys
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Rumor is that, ahead of the IPL 2021 auction, Punjab are all set for a name and logo change. That was the only thing they hadn’t attempted all this while, for 13 seasons, wasn’t it?There are teams that try everything. But Punjab are well and truly a franchise that have TRIED EVERYTHING. From retaining their core to rendering every single player in the franchise dispensable to appointing ex-players as coaches to changing captains mid-season to splashing the cash in the auction to transforming their brand of cricket to changing the face of the franchise, they’ve tried everything. Yet 13 seasons on, here they are- one of two franchises to have never won the competition and perhaps the most irrelevant club in the competition. But hey, honestly, who cares? At least they entertain us thoroughly. Long may it continue. KL Rahul (c), Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Nicholas Pooran, Mandeep Singh, Sarfaraz Khan, Deepak Hooda, Prabhsimran Singh, Mohammed Shami, Chris Jordan, Darshan Nalkande, Ravi Bishnoi, Murugan Ashwin, Arshdeep Singh, Harpreet Brar, Ishan PorelThe Missing LinksEven by KXIP’s low standards, the value for money they gained from their purchases last season was an abomination. But thanks to some prudent buys they made in 2018 and 2019, the club, remarkably, find themselves as one of the best-placed sides heading into the auction. The need for Punjab is simple: having released Maxwell, they need an out-and-out power-hitter who can compliment the stacked top-order and, having let go of Cottrell, they need a world-class overseas seamer who can lead the attack. Anything else will be a bonus but given they have five overseas slots and a ludicrous 53.20 left in their kitty, expect Punjab to be going about buying players for fun. The Dream Signings - Shahrukh Khan and Kyle JamiesonGiven this is Punjab, you’d be forgiven for thinking that we’re suggesting them to replace Preity Zinta with SRK but nah, we’re actually talking about the only Shahrukh Khan whose cameos are actually worth watching: the one who plays for Tamil Nadu. Punjab, as we all know, have a stacked top-order and able accumulators like Mandeep and Sarfaraz but something they’ve always lacked is an Indian finisher. Well, you could say Hooda, but he fires once in three years. Literally. Which is precisely why SRK would be a dream signing. The bulky 25-year-old can muscle the ball like few can in the entire country, and is, as things stand, simply the best finisher in the domestic circuit. In SMAT 2020/21 he got the job done for TN everytime he walked out to bat and did so at an SR of 220.00. SRK would be an invaluable addition per se, but that he’s Indian is a double-bonus as it would enable KXIP to potentially field 2 overseas seamers.And one of those two foreign seamers, in a dream scenario, would ideally be Kyle Jamieson. You might think he's a ‘Test bowler’ but really, Jamieson (1.42) has a far better wickets-per-inns ratio than Mohammad Shami (1.13) in T20s. His pace and bounce would add a completely new dimension to Punjab’s already-versatile attack, but, most importantly, his hitting ability down the order will complete the side which boasted of a sorrow-looking tail last season.The Realistic Signings - Jason Behrendorff and Daniel ChristianIn the unusual scenario of them being outbid for one or both the aforementioned players, Punjab needn’t panic: they will still have a plethora of options at their disposal. And, realistically, two of them would be Jason Behrendorff and Daniel Christian. The reason why Punjab signed Cottrell last season was to bamboozle sides with swing early on but, unfortunately for them, it didn’t work out. In Behrendorff, however, the Kings have a much more refined and lethal version of Cottrell, who also has prior IPL experience. The left-armer made his comeback from injury in BBL 10 and had an outstanding season, picking 16 wickets in total, and in particular was a gun with the new-ball, picking 10 wickets in the first 4 overs at quite a remarkable ER of 6.62. Pairing him with Shami would be a nightmare for teams, and it would also allow them to use both Jordan and Arshdeep dynamically. But talking of dynamism, it would be outrageous for a side like KXIP - in need of a finisher - to overlook Dan Christian. The 37-year-old has aged like a fine wine and in BBL 10 batted as well as he ever has. In a title-winning campaign for sixers, Christian struck 272 runs at a SR of 182.55 - the highest for any batsman who scored at least 250 runs - including a 15-ball 50 versus the Strikers. In terms of experience, he is Gayle-esque, and he also can bowl at the death, something he showcased in BBL 10 by bowling the Power Surge overs. What more can a team ask for?The Wildcard - Colin de GrandhommeCDG was our wildcard pick for KXIP last season too but they passed him on and purchased Maxwell. But now that the Maxwell experiment has backfired, there is every reason for Punjab to go and pursue the Big Man. One of the cleanest strikers of the cricket ball, CDG has everything you expect from a player of his mould: he scores quick runs, hits huge sixes, bowls handy overs and is an x-factor who can make a difference on his day. Having a CDG at 7 would enable Punjab to field 6 specialist batsmen and not worry about a potential collapse - something they were prone to, a lot, last season. Lower-order hitters who can bowl spin are a rarity and there are less than a handful of cricketers in the world who are adept at doing both as Moeen Ali. Despite doing a fine job with bat and ball for RCB two seasons ago, Ali was mismanaged by the franchise and frozen out of the set-up last year, but the 33-year-old could very well be the final piece in Punjab’s puzzle. Given KXIP already have two leg-spinners, the off-spin of Moeen Ali would, in many ways, complete their bowling attack. More valuable, however, would be his batting. With an SR of 158.46, Ali is, at least statistically, one of the best finishers to have ever played in the IPL and his addition would only strengthen an already-indomitable Punjab batting. The coup of Ali alone would be huge for the side, but in addition to it, if they could rope in his England teammate David Willey, Punjab will be right in the mix to be called the most balanced side in the competition. One of the most prolific short-format wicket-takers with the new ball in the last half a decade, Willey would not just provide an impetus for the side with the ball, he would also be a force of destruction down the order with the bat. Neither England nor any IPL side have thus far tapped into Willey’s potential, but lying in front of KXIP is a weapon which, if utilized effectively, could help them make big strides forward. Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

Reports | IPL franchises seek clarity on availability of Proteas players for the tournament
By admin | | 0 Comments |


After CSA announced a white-ball series at home against Pakistan in April, the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises are seeking clarity on availability of the Proteas players for the 2021 season of the league. There is a likelihood of players missing games as the SA-PAK series starts from April 2.South African players have been an integral part of the Indian Premier League over the years. Generally, they are completely available for the entire duration of the IPL tourney as well. But this time that might not be the case as the CSA recently announced that they will play three ODIs and four T20Is against Pakistan at home starting from April 2 with the white-ball series culminating on April 16. The 2021 season of the IPL is expected to kick-start from April 9 or 10 and with COVID protocols in place, South Africans might miss a few IPL games.A team like Delhi Capitals will be the worst affected as their strike bowlers Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje might not be able to make it on time, who were key to their success in the last edition of the league. Chennai Super Kings also have a couple of South African players, who are key to their side. As per reports on Cricbuzz, Delhi Capitals have raised their concern with the BCCI as they might well lose players for "two games or for two weeks" and in response, the board has made it clear that it "will send the availability details of overseas players shortly."CSA, on the other hand, in response to the query regarding the availability of the Proteas players, said it will be in contact with the BCCI over the same. Faf du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi (Chennai Super Kings), Quinton de Kock (Mumbai Indians), AB de Villiers (Royals Challengers Bangalore) and David Miller (Rajasthan Royals) are the high profile Proteas players retained by the franchises ahead of the 2021 IPL mini-auction apart from the DC duo of Rabada and Nortje.While there is a long list of Proteas players, who will be part of the upcoming IPL auction on February 18. Chris Morris, Van der Dussen, Wayne Parnell, Beuran Hendricks, Hardus Viljoen, Andile Phehlukwayo, Daryn Dupavillon, Morne Morkel, George Linde, Dwaine Pretorius, David Wiese, Gerald Coetzee, Marco Jansen and Jacques Snyman are the 14 South Africans have been shortlisted and will be up for grabs in IPL. Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IPL 2021 Auction | Sunrisers Hyderabad – Dream, realistic, wildcard and suggested buys
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Certainties in life - Death, Taxes and Sunrisers Hyderabad reaching the playoffs of the Indian Premier League. None of us possibly could have imagined saying this six years ago, but it is what it is. Speaking to us six months ago, former Sunrisers Hyderabad assistant coach Simon Helmot explained why the trust the SRH management show in their players is a key reason behind the side’s sustained success. He certainly wasn’t contorting facts. Ahead of the IPL 2021 auction, the franchise retained an astonishing 22 players, the most by any team in the competition. Thereby, SRH will enter the auction as the most settled team in the tournament, so much so that even a Chelsea-like transfer ban will make little difference to them, heading into the new season. David Warner (c), Abhishek Sharma, Basil Thampi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Shahbaz Nadeem, Shreevats Goswami, Siddarth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan, Vijay Shankar, Wriddhiman Saha, Abdul Samad, Mitchell Marsh, Jason Holder, Priyam Garg, Virat SinghThe Missing LinksThe rise of Natarajan, Samad, Garg, and Abhishek coupled with the re-birth of both Sandeep Sharma and Wriddhiman Saha have not only filled holes in the side but also made it more balanced, and the addition of Jason Holder and the returning Mitchell Marsh is bound to make it stronger. Yet there’s one area where SRH could do better in and that’s the pace department. Sandeep and Natarajan exceeded expectations last season and they were well-supported in the back end by Holder, but it goes without saying that, minus Bhuvi, they constantly are reliant on special individual performances from their pacers to support Rashid. Natarajan had a season to remember in IPL 2020, but to expect him to maintain those standards for a second season running would be naive; such prodigious form is unsustainable. With just 1 overseas slot and just 10.75 cr remaining, SRH would be targeting nothing but a good overseas pacer, particularly having released big Billy Stanlake.  The Dream Signing - Jhye RichardsonAfter finally fully recovering from a shoulder injury that plagued him for almost 2 years, Jhye Richardson, on his comeback, set the BBL alight. With 29 wickets in 17 games, the 24-year-old finished as the highest wicket-taker of the tournament and played a huge part in dragging the Scorchers to the Final. Why Richardson will be the dream signing for SRH is because, apart from bringing raw pace, he will provide impetus with the new ball, something which, if he’s paired alongside Sandeep or Bhuvi, could make the side a force to be reckoned with. Richardson struck 8 times in BBL 10 in overs 1 to 4, with an ER of 6.87, but it’s not just about the numbers. He can swing the ball at pace - something no other SRH bowler can do - rattle the stumps, test both the inside and outside edges of the batsmen and bowl the pressure overs at the back end, something only elite pacers - be it Archer, Rabada, Nortje, Bumrah or Boult - were able to do last season. He is also a more-than-handy batsman who can tonk the ball a long way - he played many a valuable cameo for the Scorchers batting at No.7 - and thus would add teeth to not just the bowling, but also lower-order batting.The Realistic Signing - Riley Meredith (or) Mark WoodSRH ideally would love to sign Jhye Richardson, but let’s be honest: they only have 10.75 cr left in their kitty, and Richardson is bound to elicit a bidding war, given he’s the hottest T20 property in world cricket currently. Thus, although he has a base price of 1.50 crore, signing him will be a long-shot. But there are alternatives they can explore; that too x-factor alternatives. Two names the Orange Army can realistically go after are Riley Meredith and Mark Wood. Both Meredith and Wood do not have the most enviable of T20 records, but they are the kind of bowlers for whom numbers don’t do justice. Two of the quickest bowlers in the world currently, Meredith and Wood will bring to the fore a package - raw pace; suitable for all conditions; enforcers - possessed by no other SRH seamer and will in many ways add a new dimension to a pace attack that currently has its limitations. Both tearaways can blow opponents off the park on their day and possess a fear-factor that currently is non-existent in SRH’s pace battery. The downside to purchasing Meredith or Wood is that both are made of glass and always will carry with them the danger of breaking down mid-season or even mid-game. Wildcard - Fidel EdwardsFidel Edwards might look like a name last heard of in the mid 2000s, but, by his own admission, the 39-year-old is bowling well as he ever has. And it is true; he is not trying to deceive the world. Recently, representing the Delhi Bulls, the Bajan speedster spit fire in the Abu Dhabi T10 league and he also enjoyed a pretty successful CPL 2020 season, picking 9 wickets at an ER of 7.67.  Not long ago, a video of Edwards’ fiery moments in the T10 league went viral on social media and it almost served as an endorsement for his IPL selection: he was fast, accurate and he sent shivers down the spines of batsmen through his yorkers and bouncers. Having picked 32 wickets in T20s since the start of 2017 at a fine ER of 8.00, Edwards has a solid record to fall back on, and punting on the veteran might not be the worst option for SRH. After all, if 40-something-year-old spinners Hogg and Tambe can dominate the IPL, there is no reason why a 39-year-old Fidel Edwards, who is in the best shape of his life, cannot do the same. SportsCafe suggests - Tim SoutheeHow Tim Southee went unsold last season is still mind-numbing, but the New Zealand talisman is a match made in heaven for SRH. For years, SRH have had no experienced pacer barring Bhuvneshwar Kumar to fall back on, and while the inexperienced Indian seamers have done an exceptional job in creating a niche for the side as a hub for seam bowlers, the addition of Southee, regardless of whether it is short or long term, would be a massive shot in the arm. Southee is, of course, notorious for his forgettable stint with RCB, but that does not take away the fact that he’s been a top tier T20I pacer in the last three years. Since 2018, the New Zealand vice-captain has picked 36 T20I wickets at an ER of 8.00 - again, bowling all the crunch overs - and his skill and experience coupled with his ability to bowl both up-front and at the death - much like Bhuvi - would prove invaluable to the side. At 32, teams are not ought to bid vehemently for Southee, so lying in front of SRH is a potential steal that could elevate their pace-bowling stocks, and in turn the whole side, by quite a few levels. Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IPL 2021 Auction | Chennai Super Kings – Dream, realistic, wildcard and suggested buys
By admin | | 0 Comments |


The dynasty has fallen and how! The invincible Super Kings went to the verge of demolition in the 2020 edition, a prized snapshot for millions of fans who despise CSK and its ridiculous dominance in the league. Can they roar back and quieten the detractors? The auction will lay the foundation.One thing that you always associate Chennai Super Kings with is MS Dhoni and his unfrazzled charisma to sail his team through troubled waters. He had done that time and again and when the franchise found themselves in a never-seen-before situation, with the absence of their talisman Suresh Raina, everyone’s hopes were pinned on him.However, T20 cricket is seldom won on reputation. The systematic imbalance in the side was way too radiant as Dhoni found himself in a cocoon of his outdated formula. CSK lost and lost and lost and it needed a Ruturaj Gaikwad special towards the fag end of the tournament to slide the wooden spoon tag.Does 2021 promise better? From the retention/release date, it seems like CSK will approach the auction with a bit of pragmatism and conservatism - a hallmark of the side - yet the fact that a lot of dreck is out of the place, we might see an interesting auction from the Men draped in Yellow. The Missing LinksShane Watson is gone, but Robin Uthappa has joined the cathedral. CSK are still sorted in terms of spinners but every single one of them turns the ball away from the right-hander. Given CSK have released Harbhajan Singh from the roster, the hammer is set to be tight in search of an offie. Further, can the side carry on without a power-hitter, especially because that was one area where they struggled big-time last year? Kedar Jadhav’s release allows the side to look for that one option who can be effective down the order or perhaps be a replacement for an injury-prone Dwayne Bravo.The Dream Signing(s) - Alex Hales/Shivam DubeEven though CSK got them covered with the trade deal of Robin Uthappa, there is no harm in going for an overseas opener who gives an attacking edge to the side. Especially with the absence of Shane Watson, it will be great if they can swoop in Alex Hales for their remaining one overseas spot. Hales not only provides a brilliant power-hitting option at the top, something MS Dhoni admitted was their Achilles Heel last year, but also allows the middle-order to retain their originality. Plus, the search for a power-hitter is never more prudent. CSK hoped Kedar Jadhav to do the job last year but he was strangely reticent in his approach and that might push the three-time champions to go for someone like Shivam Dube, a solid all-round option and doesn’t even take a crucial overseas spot. If the franchise can manage to buy any of the two, it will definitely be a dream addition.Shahrukh Khan, Naam to Suna hi Hoga! An absolute beast for Tamil Nadu in the last couple of years, Shahrukh Khan has really grown in stature as a finisher and that was in show in the recently-concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Batted only four times, but remained not out in three of them, and none of it with an SR less than 180. It says something about his astonishing ability - something the Men in Yellow could be benefitted from. If they wish for a like-for-like replacement to Bravo, whose propensity to injuries made him a volatile figure in the CSK side, then Chris Morris is also not a bad option either. Morris was decent for RCB last year and after the side released him into the market, you could really trust CSK going for the man who had played for them in the past. The Wildcards - Liam Livingstone/ Steve SmithAfter the kind of BBL Liam Livingstone, one of the most complete T20 cricketers currently, had, one would be hard-pressed to imagine him without a gig this year. He chose to stay away from the auction last time to focus his energy on the County Cricket for a possible English Test return which didn’t materialize but guess what, he can actually set the IPL stage on fire. Possibly, Stephen Fleming has already made a note of his BBL returns as well as his mixture of off-break and leg-break even though people least expect him to join CSK. Steve Smith is another option that the Chennai-based franchise might look forward to, as the Australian’s dynamic approach might be sustainable. What works further is that MS Dhoni understands Steve Smith really well thanks to his stint with Rising Pune Supergiant(s) and the duo shared a fantastic partnership as far as leadership is concerned, with Dhoni sharing his tips with Smith in every possible opportunity. Won’t be a bad option either, looking at the existing top-order. SportsCafe Suggests - Tom Curran/K GowthamSam Curran was great for CSK last year - so why don’t CSK add another Curran to the jungle? Well, jokes aside, Tom Curran brings in a complete all-round package just like his younger brother and can be suitable to their needs in dire situations. Curran might have conceded way too many runs for Rajasthan Royals last year but the fact that bowlers tend to do well under MS Dhoni’s guidance can be a propelling factor. And one shouldn’t forget the kind of impact he had on death in the T20 cricket over the years. On the other hand, remember Krishnappa Gowtham - one of the hardest hitters of the cricket ball in the country and more than a handy off-spinner. It is a mystery why the Royals decided to release him to the pool when he didn’t cost much, thus stay his addition to the CSK group can be an effective exercise. Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IPL 2021 Player auction list announced; S Sreesanth fails to make the cut
By admin | | 0 Comments |


The final list of all players set to go under the hammer in the auction for IPL 2021 was released on Thursday, and while a total of 292 cricketers were shortlisted, Kerala’s S Sreesanth failed to make the cut. Arjun Tendulkar, the son of Sachin, also made the cut, as did 42-year-old Nayan Doshi.S Sreesanth’s seven-year wait to partake once again in the Indian Premier League (IPL) is set to extend further as the 38-year-old seamer failed to make the final cut of shortlisted players that was revealed yesterday. Coming back from a seven-year ban for his alleged involvement in the 2013 IPL fixing scandal, Sreesanth represented Kerala in the 2020/21 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and picked 4 wickets in 5 games, but his showing wasn’t enough to attract franchises, who chose not to shortlist him. But while Sreesanth will not feature in IPL 2021, there exists an outside chance of the son of Sachin Tendulkar, Arjun Tendulkar, being picked by a franchise. Arjun had enrolled his name in the auction and set his base price as 20 lakh, and, interestingly, the 21-year-old ended up making the final cut. The left-arm seamer played for Mumbai in the 2020/21 SMAT season, where he picked 2 wickets in 2 games.Arjun, however, was not the most unusual shortlist as it came in the form of 42-year-old Nayan Doshi. Nayan Doshi, the son of former Indian cricketer Dilip Doshi and an English citizen, has not played a professional game of cricket in over 8 years, yet the left-arm spinner somehow found his name making the final cut. Doshi, like several uncapped players, listed himself at a base price of 20 lakh. Kyle Jamieson (75 lakh), Jhye Richardson (1.50 crore), Steve Smith (2 crore), Aaron Finch (1 crore), Glenn Maxwell (2 crore), Kedar Jadhav (2 crore), Moeen Ali (2 crore), Jason Roy (2 crore), Alex Hales (1.50 crore), and Dawid Malan (1.50 crore) are some of the other prominent names to have made the final cut.The full list of the shortlisted players - split by country - is below:AUSTRALIA Name Age Base Price Rs(In Lakhs) C/U/A Previous IPL Team(s) Aaron Finch 34 100 Capped RR, DD, PWI, SRH, MI, GL, KXIP,RCB Steve Smith 31 200 Capped PWI,RPS,RR Glenn Maxwell 32 200 Capped DD,MI,KXIP Alex Carey 29 150 Capped DC Nathan Coulter-Nile 33 150 Capped DD,KKR,RCB,MI Jhye Richardson 24 150 Capped -

Reports | Vivo set to move away from IPL title sponsorship; Dream 11 and Unacademy in contention
By admin | | 0 Comments |


After the fiasco that unravelled last year, Chinese smartphone makers Vivo is eyeing an exit from the Indian Premier League, transferring their rights to interested bidders. While Dream11 won the bid last year worth Rs 222 crores, there might be a competition with Unacademy this time around.Last year, just before the start of the Indian Premier League, Chinese smartphone makers Vivo had their sponsorship suspended for the year, owing to Sino-India geopolitical relations. With the situation not yet come to a better state, TOI has reported that Vivo are eyeing an exit from the league, transferring its rights to interested bidders. In its current deal, the Chinese smartphone makers were paying Rs 440 crores every year as the title sponsors. However, last year, the BCCI had made a deal with Dream11 just for the 2020 edition of the tournament, where the gaming platform offered them half the money Vivo were paying for a one-year deal. "It's almost final that Vivo will exit the IPL title sponsorship deal by mutual consent with the board. It was suspended for the 2020 edition. However there is a clause which allows them to transfer their pending liabilities as one-time title sponsors on the new winner. If the board agrees on principle, it can happen," a senior BCCI source told PTI on conditions of anonymity, reported TOI. The new bidders, according to TOI would be the title sponsors for the next three years, with BCCI looking into possibilities of adding more teams in the league. "Dream11 and Unacademy will place their offers to Vivo. Unacademy in any case is an associate sponsor and they are ready to offer a higher amount in order to acquire the rights from Vivo," an industry insider tracking developments said, reported TOI. With less than two weeks for the Auction, that kick-off in Chennai, the IPL Governing Council and the BCCI will have to take a decision on the same. However, until anything substantial pops up from the deal, the governing council are expected to use VIVO’s logo in the upcoming IPL Auction. "Look, Vivo paid approximately Rs 440 crore (Rs 2190 crore for 5 years). Now if BCCI invites bids, just like last year when Dream11 paid Rs 222 crore, it might increase but can't be doubled. But if there is a transfer of rights, the old amount could be matched or even bettered," the source said.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IPL 2021 | Royal Challengers Bangalore rope in Sanjay Bangar as batting consultant
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Former Indian batting coach Sanjay Bangar has been appointed as the batting consultant of Royal Challengers Bangalore for the upcoming 2021 Indian Premier League season. Bangar will work closely with Director of Cricket Operations Mike Hesson and Head Simon Katich during his stint with RCB.After three tough years following the final run in the 2016 season, Royal Challengers Bangalore showed a comparatively better performance in the last edition of the Indian Premier League, qualifying for the play-offs. However, their inability to hold the fort in the crucial game resulted in the side going down to Sunrisers Hyderabad in the eliminator and thus failed to make the season count.To improve the performance, RCB have roped in former Indian batting coach Sanjay Bangar, with whom Virat Kohli shares an amicable relationship, for the 14th edition of the league which is slated to be played in India this time.Bangar was appointed as the batting coach of India in August 2014 before he was replaced by Vikram Rathour in the aftermath of the 2019 World Cup. He has since worked as a Television expert on Star Sports and had declined an offer from Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to give more time to his family. We are delighted to welcome Sanjay Bangar to the RCB Family as a batting consultant for #IPL2021! 🤩Welcome aboard, Coach! 🤜🏻🤛🏻#PlayBold #WeAreChallengers #NowARoyalChallenger pic.twitter.com/SWKLthSyXl — Royal Challengers Bangalore (@RCBTweets) February 10, 2021Earlier, before the Conflict of Interest rule came into being, Bangar had worked as the head coach of Kings XI Punjab. This will be his second IPL gig with a lot of responsibility on his shoulder following Royal Challengers Bangalore releasing a host of players to the auction pool in the retention window.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

Available for IPL but dream is ultimately to get back to red-ball cricket, reveals Jhye Richardson
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Australia’s Jhye Richardson, who ended BBL 2020/21 as the highest wicket-taker, confirmed that he has made himself available for IPL 2021 but insisted that ultimately he wants to rekindle red-ball aspirations. Richardson is set to spearhead the Aussie attack in the forthcoming T20Is vs New Zealand.After catapulting to fame in 2019 by dismissing Virat Kohli thrice in three games, Jhye Richardson spent no less than 18 months in the sidelines owing to a dodgy shoulder, but the youngster marked his ‘proper’ return to cricket in style. With 29 wickets in 17 innings, Richardson finished as the highest wicket-taker of the 2020/21 Big Bash League and was duly rewarded for the same by being named in Australia’s T20I tour of New Zealand.Many, however, including former Aussie skipper Ricky Ponting, believed that the 24-year-old should be rocketed straight back into the Test side. Richardson made his Test debut in 2019 versus Sri Lanka and impressed, picking 6 wickets at an average of 20.50, but has since not been able to find his way back into the side owing to fitness.Ahead of the five T20Is versus New Zealand, Richardson admitted that ultimately, fitness pertaining, he would love to get back to playing long-form cricket, but confirmed that, for now, he has made himself available for the IPL. The 2021 edition of the IPL is set to clash with the Sheffield Shield season.“I have put my hand up for the IPL, but I have confidence in myself to be able to play red-ball cricket,” Richardson told ESPN Cricinfo.“I think a really good test of that was our back-to-back games, albeit only four overs a game, but I think from a back-to-back perspective trying to get up and go again and test how my shoulder was, it was completely fine. Test cricket is always the dream, that would always be the ideal, and I'd love to get back and play Shield cricket for WA as well, that would be really exciting."It was not long ago that Richardson, alongside Pat Cummins, was spearheading Australia’s attack in ODI cricket and was in line to play both the 2019 World Cup and the Ashes, but a tragic dislocation of the shoulder put an abrupt halt to the youngster’s career. A setback in rehab meant that he also barely played cricket in 2020, and it is only now, two years post the shoulder dislocation, that he is finding his way back into the game.Richardson admitted that the spell on the sidelines was tough, but insisted that, for him, it was all about enjoying his cricket. The 24-year-old also claimed that he has time and age on his side, despite already missing two years of cricket."It's been a little bit tough, but the reassurance there is that I've been there once, there's no reason for me to no try and get back there again. That's the way I think about it anyway, the opportunity is still going to be there, I'm still only 24 years old so there's plenty of time, it's just about concentrating on what's happening at that particular moment, whether I'm playing for WA or the Scorchers and then whatever happens after that, if I get picked for Australia that's a bonus.""For me it comes back to enjoying playing cricket, because if I'm not enjoying it then I'm obviously doing something wrong. It's been difficult dealing with such a big injury as well, but the positive now is I'm back on an Australian tour, which I'm really excited for and that positive out of all of it makes the whole road to recovery worth it. All of it's been difficult. The initial injury that happened in the UAE probably didn't hit me as soon as I thought it would."I was optimistic with the World Cup not too long after that and the discussion being trying to get up for that, things stayed relatively positive. Something that's helped is there was always something around the corner to aim for, and then every time you get shut down from that or not make that [goal], it sort of chips away at you that little bit more. It's been tough at times, but to be able to come back and play this BBL and have such a good tournament, to then get picked in the Australian team, it makes everything worth it. So super happy to be back."Australia's five-T20I series will commence on February 22 at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

Overreaction Monday ft. Pant’s nervous nineties, Sachin Jr. in IPL and the Chepauk curator
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Day 4 of the India-England Test going on has meant that Monday has become a bearable day but, let’s be honest, the first day of the week always tends to suck, doesn’t it? We’ve tried to get over the blues by delving into some rather interesting mob opinion, including why Pant is not doing enough.Steve Smith bags the Allan Border Medal for the third time On Saturday, Steve Smith was declared the winner of the Allan Border Medal for the 2020-2021 season, with him pipping Pat Cummins by 12 votes. SC Take: Steve Smith winning the Allan Border Medal - i.e. being crowned the best player in Australia - seems equivalent to water being wet etc. but while this might have held true any other year, this year, however, it can’t be disputed that Pat Cummins was robbed of the award. Smith won the ‘ODI cricketer of the year’ award and that’s OK. He was exceptional right from the start of 2020 and capped it off with those twin 60-ball tons versus India. He deserved it. But to win the Allan Border Medal? Over Cummins? Ridiculous. 68% of all runs he scored in the voting period came in the SCG Test alone, and, barring that, he made no meaningful contributions in the longer format. What Cummins did in ODIs in the voting period - 15 wickets in 11 games - was far greater than what Smith managed to do in whites. But the real issue is why even bother awarding the AB Medal in a year where just four Tests were played? The disparity in the number of games played - ODIs and Tests - always meant that the player who dominated in limited-overs was going to be given precedence. In a year where just four Tests were played, the AB Medal is nothing but a mere extension of the “ODI cricketer of the year” award. Little surprise that Smith ended up winning both. The pre-IPL-auction shenanigansLeaks from player registrations for IPL 2021 auction have emerged and well, unsurprisingly, people have lost their mind - already.SC Take: There are times in the year when even the sanest of men turn into absolute maniacs and the fortnight prior to the IPL auction is one such phase. A couple of days ago, the list of players who have registered for the forthcoming auction emerged and people have started losing their mind already. There have been quite a few interesting opinions, so let's traverse through them. The first is the ‘common man’ on Twitter and Facebook being outraged over Arjun Tendulkar enrolling his name in the auction. You know, ‘nepotism bad noooooo’ and all that. It is truly absurd that people will not even let that poor lad register his name in the auction with peace - and that too for just 20 lakh. Gosh. He obviously is now officially a domestic cricketer (having played in SMAT) and he has EVERY RIGHT to enrol his name in the auction, like any other cricketer. When THIS guy has played in the IPL, is it a crime if Arjun - a proper professional cricketer - registers his name? Duh.Secondly, we have the annual meltdown over ‘base prices’. Kedar Jadhav has set his base price at 2 crore, and many cannot digest it. But really, why would he lower their price though? He is an IPL veteran and regardless of how bad he fared last year, he ‘could’ be an asset at INR 2 crore for any other side. He was on 8.40 crore for years, so obviously he’s going to look at earning at least 2 crore. And lastly, we have the Sreesanth discourse. Here it is two extremes - one lot which thinks he will invite no bidders and the other, which feels he’ll be a red-hot property. Unfortunately, things are not that ‘black and white’ in cricket - more so in life - so yeah, don’t be surprised if he’s just picked up for his base price or something. Rishabh Pant - how dare you score only 90?Rishabh Pant, on Sunday, was dismissed in the 90s yet again, but the cricketing fraternity is upset that he is not doing more.SC Take: Look, you can understand why this criticism exists in the first place. People are well aware of Pant’s batting talent so they think that he has it in him to score 150s and 200s. And this viewpoint is fine. But it is important to understand that he is, at the end of the day, a wicket-keeper batsman. He is not a specialist batsman. We need to tone down our expectations. The fact is that wicket-keepers, no matter how talented they are with the bat, should not be expected to be prolific. They should not be put under pressure to become run-machines.An impact is what they’re supposed to create and Pant is doing a job and a half right now. Even the greatest wicket-keeper batsman of all time, Adam Gilchrist, posted just three 150+ scores in his 96-Test career, and a remarkably talented batsman like Rizwan brought up his maiden Test ton only yesterday. Quinton de Kock has only 5 tons in Tests and no scores over 130. The fact that Pant is averaging 45 in Tests in itself is outrageous and we should be content with his returns. Why Pant is bearing the brunt is because of the ineptness of India’s #3 and #5 to score big. Pujara has not brought up three-figures at home in his last 13 innings and Rahane has only ever scored 90 or more at home 4 times (in 43 innings), which is remarkably just once more than Pant. Chastise them for not doing their job, not Pant for over-delivering. Fire the Chepauk curatorFans want the curator for the first Test between India and England to be fired because he prepared the worst pitch to have ever existed. SC Take: There is this dialogue from a Tamil film which goes, “Unaku vandha ratham, enaku vandha thakkali chutney ah?”. Translating it wouldn’t make sense but it basically refers to double standards. The aforementioned dialogue would hold true right now, to the Indian fans berating the curator. Y’all are just showcasing your double-standards.The fact is that every Indian pitch over the last four years has exactly been like this Chennai wicket, if not even flatter. In 2019 vs South Africa, India posted first innings scores of 502, 601 and 497. South Africa even responded with 431 in one of those games. I wonder why there were no complaints back then. Because India won, eh? Indian fans, you understandably have been taken aback by an opposition batting for 190 overs, but just because India did not win the toss and bat first - like they usually do - does not mean you blame the poor curator - for producing a proper Indian wicket. Instead, blame Virat for not winning the toss. Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .
