Cricket: World Cup 20/20/10: T20 not Cricket - Pollard?M. Holding
February 9, 2010, Nagpur, India.... Dayle Steyn's 10 wicket haul helped South African cricket team to win by an inning and 6 runs on the fourth day of the 1st test mach btween India and south Africa in Nagpur today at 4.50 pm IST. The 5 day match started on Saturday while SA recovering quick loss of two wickets of openers, it was Hashim Amla (253 runs not out) then Kallis and others made a formidable tough score of 558-6 (declared) on Sunday at 3pm, India n test cricket team headed by M. S. Dhoni started with 25 for no loss then the next day despite a centurion stand by V. Sehwag the team crumbled to an all out for 233 runs. The real wonder came at around 3.15 pm IST on Sunday while India were 221 for 4 wickets the Dale Steyn express bowling stormed Indian team by sending back 5 batsmen for just 3 runs as India collapsed from 221 for 4 to 233 all out while India was forced to follow on in a test match (3rd time in 25 years?), the same day, Sunday at the end of play while following on India were 66 for 2 wickets on 8/Feb 2010. Most probably this was the turning point of the game as no one in world expected the big bubbling team India would collapse in this way in first innings and made to follow on too. Next (4th), 9 Feb 2010, day while Sachin Tendulkar showed resistance and grit (completed his 45th Test cricket ton), no one else really came to resque while M. Vijay made resisting 34 runs, Badri next batsman also contributed 50 runs partenership with Tendulkar but wickets kept falling and after fall of Badrinath M. S. Dhoni the captain batted for a while, again as India were proving better with Harbhajan Singh's quick brave 39 runs contribution as he got Lbw out bowled Harris (took 3 wickets today), then the losing fight from Indian team began when Zaheer Khan and W. Saha showed stiff talent to bring India to a score of over 300 runs in 2nd innings and it looked as if India will definitely go to the 5th day of the test match saving its respect but id did not happen; once again semi-miraculously at the ending of the day Dale Steyn struck when Indian team had made 317 runs for 7 wickets, Zaheer khan was out and after only one run the much resistive new batsman Saha was bowled by Steyn, 318-8, adding only one more run the entire Big team India were bowled out completely making only 352 runs in both innings thus losing to South African team by an inning and 6 runs behind. February 13, 2010, 6.50 pm IST HeadlinestodayTv analyzed in details what will happen tomorrow when spirited South Africa take on depleted but confident Indian cricket team, whereas Greame Smith reported to have finger injury but said he is most interested to take on the Indian team in Kolkata E.Gardens and is confident that Steyn will carry the pace to the green-pitch, also whether Hashim Amla, man of the match in first test match at Nagpur and Harris the tripple wicket taker will deliver the goods. On Indian side 3 pacers may be introduced into attack the last seamer will be Shreeshant the Kerala express including Zahir Khan and Ishant Sharma??? The tourney consists of only two test matches so it is essential for both Indian and South African teams to swing to best.
Feb14,2010.....Neosports.tv showed well the turning points of 1st days play between RSA andIndia.At one point S. Africans werecruising well at 12.25pm IST at Kolkata Edengardens when Hashim Amla & Peterson scored centuries (Amla 75 runs overtook Peterson 75 runs in average100balls each) but later Zaheer Khan andHarbhajan Singh of India bowledwell incutters and theresults was S.Africa were9 wickets down at end of play on 14FebSunday 2010.
Feb 15, 2010.....Just log on to www.neosports.tv and join the discussion going on fine at the second day of 2nd test match between Republic of South Africa RSA and India at kolkata today starting from 9 for 266 yesterday RSA tailenders made impressive 30 runs figuring 296 all out and Indian inning once again, no..... did not falter but started fine with Verendra Sehwag going on song and quickly reached century, Sachin joined after fall of Ganbhir and Murali Vijay ( 25 runs and 7 runs??) till late midday the experienced duo dominated and tore apart even Dale Steyn's shoort of length bowling, Harris bowling haphazardly so many wides and nobes, Morkel with finest run up action also became victim of the duo's fine shots selection only V. Sehwag was lucky enough making runs without using footwork.
But finally near the day 2 play end 3 quick wicket fell (?) that seem! South Africa back in game but this may not be enough as India still has 5 wickets in hands with already a lead of over 40 runs. Neosports was quick to ask for the general opinion and reasoning whether is it advantage South Africa or not? ( share dial the number and opine..... the number will be given next or just log on to neosports.tv).
February 16, 2010, Day 3 @ Edengarden Kolkata test match India vs South Africa whereas the later lost the initiative very 1st day of 2nd and final test match losing all wickets in a haste.
BATTLE FOR NO. 1. If India wins this test India will be No.1 and vise versa so this is game of nerves as South Africa under graeme Smith have lost the initiative even with Peterson and Amla made centuries this wasnot to be enough as in reply India gave strong message the 3rd day at end of play they were sitting pretty at 342 runs lead finishing with 636 runs for 6 wickets declared.
Only remote hope for South Africa is that they are the team which made over 400 runs in 50 overs beating Aussies once and keeping this right into their minds they must go on batting 'responsibly' and sensibly without any 'fear' and 'pressure' as the true work might result in draw or else!
Here from Infosafe100 starmindone-tips we give tips named as "concentrato" for the 1st time ever..... the right side head temple area is greatest point where the 'concentrato' point could be imaginarily stuck thus increasing courage and pumping confidence into play or players while batting; more of the success of "concentrato' will be explained later.
Day 5 : February 18, 2010..... Hashim Amla's one more Heroic fight back just could not save from defeat at Indian cricket team as 2nd test match is nearing to Indian victory. At 1.05 pm Indian standard time at Eden garden club chasing big total of 642/6 decl., South African team led by Graeme Smith was reeling under its own pressure with 7 wickets down and Hashim Amla still fighting as he scored 74 runs off 241 balls and 76 runs off 245 balls with his tailender batsman Pernell at 10 runs off 19 balls when reports last came in from All India radio commentary special. Till lunch time it was really a brave fight with Ashwell Prince and Hashim Amla well seem settled with finest defensive batting ( 3 wickets down @ 12 pm IST) just after lunch while Indian bowlers look stained Ishaant Sharma mostly bowling outside the off stump and thereby creating no panic in SA team which seem destined to draw the match but after lunch 4 quick wickets fell; the result now seemingly a win for India???
February 19, 2010, Home-report, as told yesterday the inevitable happened, starmindone hinted at 1.35 pm and it happened at nearly 4pm Indian standard time at Kolkata where even GOD COULD NOT SAVE the South Africans for their own 'wicket throwing' like policy. Chasing to draw the 2nd test match with India the RSA team slumped on February 17, 2010 morning spell with 115 runs for 3 wickets and RAIN came to the resque that day but still SA team did not learn to programme itself ( as it did in days of world cup when Imran Khan's team won ) and repeated the Harakiri on 18 February; even World-top 1 position staring at them could not save as Kallis 20, Prince 23, De Villiers 3, Duminy 6 ( all big-bats went cheap with lack of "concentrato") while it seemed still tailenders gave logical fight; after lunch from 115 runs for 3 to 7 wickets down at 1.05 pm IST later still while H. Amla was fighting like brave Abdurrazzakh Lary 8th wicket partener Pernell did well kept hopes alive for SA but GREAT MISTAKE was committed by HARRIS ho was so finely going unnecessary stopped a ball fro Ishant Sharma to redirect dead ball and next ball he was out, had he been there the story would have been different because the next and last batsman M. Morkel again applied concentrato making 12 runs at this moment only 6 OVERS or odd were remaining to stand on..... perhaps to fetch back No.1 team position but Harbhajan singh's experience broke it all if at this time 1 more wicket was saved that of Harris then South Afri-cricket would have been NO.1, but its lost at Paradise (Eden garden, Kolkata), the situation near fall of Harris wicket was so amazing that looking at the face of Sachin Tendulkar and Veerender Sehwag (at 3.40 pm IST) one could only see the dismay over Indian team which finally emerged the winners.....
Hyderabad, India Feb 20, 2010..... The Safaris lost concentration in 2nd test at Kolkata and lost they are not favourites at present but having the strong will power of winning 50-50 cricket match with over 400 runs chasing this group cannot be taken light especially they managed to defeat India in India with an inning plus runs; all they have to do is to simply get back that strong willpower added "concentro" ( an imaginary button at right head temple that gives extra vision plus attention)..... yet the continuity of over aggression by Steyn and Harris may bring fall as yet top batsmen like Kallis Prince and Peterson must learn from India D-or-D method and play with self imposed responsibility..... Winning follows the right (head) concentration..... learn more at..... firstname.lastname@example.org ( not a joke).....
The first ODI starts tomorrow at 1.15 pm IST at Jaipur Sawai Mansingh stadium you can catch the sensation with ..... www.neosports.tv.com
Again on feb 21, 2010 1st ODI at Jaipur 10 pm Indian standard time South African cricket team committed similar mistakes of lack of will and concentration except Jack Kallis who was bowled out after hitting six and a four making some hopes but was ou when the asking rate was over 10 per over. SA may lose the 1st ODI here at Jaipur S. Mansingh stadium.
DC, Hyderabad India, Feb 22, 2010..... p.17..... Skipper Dhoni's gamble of packing 8 batsmen in the side almost MISFIRED for India as they squeezed out a one run victory over South Africa in 1st one dayer at the Singh Stadium in Jaipur. India made 298/8 in 50 overs and the visitors were bowled out for 297 runs off the final ball of the match.
Wayne Parnell slammed a 47 ball 49 runs and Dale Steyn Blasted 35 runs off only 19 balls with 1 four and 3 Sixes..... had there been another sixer story would have been different..... but the middle order slump of SA team continues except Kallis no one showed the concentrato' ..... the turning point quite clearly was the run out of Peterson?..... but this match also sjowed the flaw in Indian bowling strategy as regular bowler Praveen Kumar was rested and Raina rendered 3-0-25-0 stats. Earlier Herschelle Gibbs and Loot Bosman were off to flying start by SA, flaying the opening bowlers to all parts of the ground.
The 2nd ODI between SA and India at Roop Singh Stadium will have a beauty of batting hi-scores say people here on February 24, 2010 lights play, while India might play with two spinners specialists to check flow of runs it is being questioned why consistent champion Hashim Amla was ovwrlooked in the 1st ODI at Jaipur where SA lost by 2 runs. If Hashim Amla is included and the SA middle order too play consciously with Steyn and Parnell to equilibrium then South Africa has all chances to turn around and start winning (infosafe cricnews), as India has 50.50 chances and SA may have 49.50% chances to emerge.
Feb 24, 2010, 2nd ODI between South Africa and India turned into another nightmare for South African cricket team with its flawed bowling and fielding today/night; while batting first India posted a haunting total of over 400 runs with Tendulkar Double century the guest team batting second once again faltered severely. Door Darshan tv channel of India showed the match fully and the South Africans were 4 wickets down (Jack Kallis out for 11 runs) at around 7.55 pm Indian standard time.
February 27, 2010, DoorDarshan tv Indian national channel showing the action in Gwaliar stadium, Gujarat state India where in 3rd ODI choosing to bat first South African cricket team led by Jackues Kallis made 365 runs in 50 overs with speciality seen in opening batsmen of quick-shot selection with which Hashim Amla and Loot scored great start; every shot seemed pre decided and quicker unlike in ODI 1 & 2.
***Observation: If one carefully and scientifcally observe batting action in cricket 50-50 one would see the successfull strokes always are struck around 0.24 to 0.45 seconds earlier than casual risky late shots with which South African batsmen played ODI 1 & 2 and lost.***
Quickly if one sees the ball-reading today of Amla, Loot, Kallis and AB De Villiers (made century); they all came forward with positive foot-work and almost directed their shots. In over 12? sixers lofted today many were well crafted by De villiers and Kallis. Sachin Tendulkar also playes his shots and readies himself even before the ball crosses good-length point (this gives bat and batsmen to overcome and roast the ball with hot mid bat fire, with best vision of ball and its length and turn may well be the secret of Sachin success) and this could well be read by experimenting with a stop-watch how much time ball takes to travel from bowler to batsman. South Africa deserves victory today in 3rd ODI at Guujarat, Motera stadium.
On Feb 27, 2010 at Motera stadium Gujarat India as we said it South African team inspired by 7th quicketst odi century by AB De Villiers won the 3rd match convincingly with over 90 runs while Indian team managed to lump over 270+ runs; well now it just cant be said that SA salvaged and consoled its cricket team with the last game win but Cricket is game of ever records breaking as Motera stadium experienced the highest runs made on its soil likewise who can say that there could be another Sachin Tendulkar with more 'powerful-plays' like him it is quite possible within short time; SA has honours of chasing over 400 runs in 50-50 matches and win and Hashim Amla shows the correct alert and 'concentrato' or the cricket-blaze.
March 12, 2010, the much awaited and hyped IPL qiuick cricket starts now as Deccan chargers take on Kolkata knight riders tonight at 6 pm Indian standart time. Yet the real cricket taste lis in 50-50 overs official matches and also its world cup which draws fantastic attention and interest fro m over worldwide. Even 20-20 matches have picked up brilliantly but this IPL sponnsored by DLF cricket does seem to be like Artificial intelligence cricket where all big star players look like acting or over acting. Although it is full of cash-bags but yet the taste us not that of ODI's and test matches where nations play for their own prides. The discussion thhus may go on and the matches are also on you see and enjoy the whole dance-masti also and if have questions to ask, please do so with famous anchor Harsha Bhogle at cricketnext.com.

Kolkata Knight Riders seem to charge the grounds yesterday with both Brad Hodge and Manoj, the openers hitting half centuries and it is very pity scene to see Mahinder Singh Dhoni's team giggling around KKR knock of over 180 runs. Also in another match Deccan Chargers came out with lusty hittings by Adam Gilchrist and Symmo with almost every ball 4 runs..... watch it all and wait for the points table in this tournament..... at IN.COM without any hitches and you can also share the joy with starting a discussion openly there.

IPL-3 has seen a revival in Kolkata Knight Riders fortunes.It requiressomething special to beat teams of quality of reigning champions Deccan Chargers and runners Royale Challenge (led by ShaneWerne) (this news and expectation trend was reported to our viewers a day earlier than the big news paper likeDeccan Chronicle said thesame a day later).
..... Given the momentum the Knights are gaining, Chennai super kings are likely to face a testin g time in Tuesday's clash at the Eden Garden.
The M. S. Dhoni led team willneed play out of their skins if they are to open their account in the tournament.....Meanwhile Chaminda Vaas of Sri Lanka is out to prove or rub shoulders with the best bowler of the 3rdseason of Indian Premier League IPL.
March 17, 2010, Kolkata, In clash of titans yesterday an inept batting display sealed Kolkata Knight Riders fate as Chennai super kings romped toa comprehensive 55 run victory on Tuesday evening here at Eden gardens. CSK captain Mahinder Singh Dhoni played a blinder of an inning despite being hit on his elbow by a rising Shane Bond delivery after electing to bat first. Later Mahinder Singh Dhoni (on 17/3/2010) was announced to be out of tournament for at least 10 to 12 days following his elbow injury....aajtak tv.com 6.pm IST), in his place suresh Raina will be captaining CSK team.
March 19, 2010, starmindone doesn't really remember among the excitement or the great artificial joy of the IPL-3 here in India, donot remember even the venues and teams, rather it is difficult to..... you see how many world's great cricketers are participating in it. But yesterday on March 18, 2010 what all one remembers that'
1. Praveen Kumar's Hattrick
2. Shane Warne's reversal
3. 10 wicket victory (Royal Challengers Bengaluru)
Dear viewers for mor excitement more puzzles answered and more actions right now at 7.25 pm IST going on at Sony Max tv special effects..... catch it on www.Youtube.com/ipl.
Please do also remember that Yesterday while Praveen Kumar took the Hatrick, the taste of match also came into seeing the "Finger Dance", I mean the batting and win of Royal Challengers by making 93 runs required was so flawless that almost every ball it was a Four Run Signal From Umpire (.....................) dancing and swaying away his fingers showing all the way for all the Four (runs); Jack Kallis made 43 runs and other Opener made 42 runs to have a 10 wicket victory. So now you know well WHAT IS FINGER DANCING.....Ha...Ha...Haa. (starmindone)
March 21, 2010, Sunday, India, as for now at 8.55 pm IST the Deccan Chargers have won todays IPL-3 match against Sehwag's Delhi Dare Devils and so the Deccan Chargers , deffending champions are again right on top with 8 pouints, and consequently yesterday's loss for Kolkata Knight Riders have pushed them OUT OF TOP SUPER FOUR qualifying for semifinals BUT WAIT the ShahRukh Khan's Kolkata Knight Riders will be back again.
Whether Shah Rukh Khan's Kolkata Knight Riders spear headed by Saurau Ganguly will make a MARK today as they have to win this match to say afloat in the IPL-3 for the top-4, is now a question, at Mumbai today on March 22, 2010, as the DC newspaper in sports quote " Mumbai (Indians) hold the edge at home but Kolkata Knight Riders have ability to surprise..... 'The inclusion of CHRIS GAYLE is likely to boost Kolkata side morale come Monday.
Chris Gayle and Dada Ganguly slightly tumbled in flexing the shoulders against Mumbai Indians yester-night as Sachin Tendulkar once again came with power to seal the Riders fate at Mumbai defeating KKR by 6 wickets comfortably, earlier Gayle made 75 runs in KKR innings (March 22, 2010 11 pm IST). March 23, 2010, Bengaluru, India: Owner of Kingfisher Big-biz Mr. Vijay Mallya is a very happy man for his owned team Royal Challengers Bangaluru has emerged on top table of IPL-3 beating the Chennai Super Kings comfortably. Now the RCB are in top rank w.r.t., Runrate of over +2.0 and Chennai Super Kings are on 4th spot while the Kolkata Knight Riders are still on 5th place with -0.08 runrate having lost 3 out of 5 matches played so far.
March 25, 2010, Bengaluru, Mumbai, India, The greatest catch of the IPL-3 perhaps was key point to defeat Royal Challengers tonight, led by Sehwag. Another Sachin stunning performance yet let to its victory at Mumbai against Chennai Super Kings. Now Mumbai 8 points, Bangalore-8 points, Chargers 6 points Delhi 6 points are on top-table while Kolkata KKR are down with 4 points.
March 29,2010, Kolkata, India the Depleted Dare Devils, V. Sehwag & co will take on KKR winnerteam Ganguly & co tonight at 8pm IST watch to enjoy fully .
March 29, 2010, Kotla ground, Delhi, India, The Dare Devils beat favourites Riders at Kotla ground comfortably. KKR now are on 6th position in point table. Earlier in IPL-2010 recent series due to foul-mouth speech Harbhajan Singh of Mumbai riders was fined on commenting on Sameer after taking his visit. Bhajji is getting used to ABUSE and this does not indicate DESCIPLINE with which he is miles away.
April 1, 2010, DC, Hyderabad, India,
"Chargers eye Eden (garden) turnaround"
..... On a dry and flat pitch the Chargers will look to unleash their batting firepower (Gilly, Symmo, Lax etc,) and post a total in excess of 170 for the Knight riders; history could work in (Knight Riders) favour as Deccans are yet to beat them in Calcutta, Sorry Kolkata Edens. KKR's Ganguly & co are suffering from un-do's. Fiery Mathews must be upgraded, heavy trust on Gayle is not paying dividends as well Ishant Sharma's straying lines.
Earlier in the match played day before surprisingly Super kings over powered Royal challengers Bangalore at Madras Cricket Club..... the match was full of excitement with M. Vijaya's lusty hitting, instead of showing the Cheer leaders the TV crew focussed on Ambani & co sitting at the exclusive lobby there and enjoying and laughing out ( see all back-2-back matches at youtube.com/ipl). Brief Scores..... Challengers Bangalore 161/4 in 20 overs (Kallis 52, s. Jakti 2 wickets for 17 runs) lost to Chennai kings 165/5 in 19 overs (M. Vijay 76, suresh raina 44 n.o.)
April 4, 2010, Mumbai, India, SonymaxTv, While Mumbai remains on top with 7 wins out of 8 matches played (run rate: +1.412) followed by Bangalore and Delhi teams but owing to Stardim craze favour or luck or the tactical game of Ganguly & co and also V. Sehwag & co of Dekhi Devils both having capacity to turn the tables it seem obvious that Mumbai Indians will take on either Dare devils or KKR team on semifinals or even in the Finals, let us see how far this opinion will come true.
Mumbai, April 6/7, 2010, Superstar cricketer in great form defending Mumbai Indians team yesterday got Hurt ( Dehyderation ) during 9th over of his batting against Chennai super kings thereby tasting the first defeat in the IPL 2010, India:
Kolkata Knight Riders have a paper thin chances to make it to finals in DLF IPL-3 being played in India. Mumbai tops with 14 points followed by Delhi, Bangalore and Chenmnai in toplist, whereas Kolkata Knight Riders the favourites are struggling at bottom end but above the much talked team Deccan Chargers here. KKR have 4 wins, 8 points and runrate of -0.444, tonight they face Dare Devils at 8 pm IST.
April 11, 2010, PTI,
Way back in 1755 Mumbai belonged to Golkonda Kings & they had conquered Mumbai island and gave it as a gift to Queen (? E&OE), now as the IPL-3 situation says on April 19, 2010, Mumbai has been unconquered fort but while Deccan chargers have amazingly defeated the Dare devils yesterday with low scoring game, the defending champions now may pick up the historical courage to once again conquer the Mumbai, I mean the Mumbai Indian team led by the Sachin the sixer.....
Shilpa Shetty co-owner of an IPL-3 group in a spirit to encourage her players visits Ajmer Sharif Dargah of Hazrath Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti on Saturday clad in Burquah gifted to her by famous cricketer Yousuf Pathan who plays for her Rajasthan Royal team. Ha, ha thank God I wore it (sic!).... this Shipla wrote on her Twitter page. The Knight Riders yesterday again made a dismal show and lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore ( KKR- 160 for 9 Maccullum 45 Gayle 34, lost to RCB 164/3 in 17.1 overs, Darvid 52, ): if KKR have to be in the race they may have to win all forthcoming 3 remaining matches or else.....
April 15, 2010, Kolkata Knight Riders seem to run out of time as its coach spelled the team may well be on way to IPL-4 semifinals as it did not dowell this time inspite being favourites. Shah Rukh Khan and Saurav Ganguly are helpless unless the team wins two of two matches to be played with better run rate to place in semifinals or else they have to wait for next IPL-4 which may start next April 1st week.
April 21, 2010, "Endgame after IPL final"
Mr. Lalit MODI's carefully constructed Billion dollar game Indian premier league threatens to come down crashing around his ears..... writes DC, Hyderabad India on p.1.
It all started after he "outed" details of the "Kochi" bid for an IPL team to join the lucrative league from 2010 ..... this lead to resignation of the "Twitter-tout" Indian minister Mr. Shashi Tharoor, the fallout now threatens to consume the IPL commissioner (Mr. Sharad Pawar and others like Praful Patil, Supriya Sule etc., are the names revolving in this contoversy!!!)
Well well, the time now is for the ouster of the Mumbai team which proudly has Sachin the sixer to positive side and Harbhajan Singh probably to the nrgative side ( because no other cricketer is as emotionally negative as he is slapping and vulgarising the game???) So Mumbai team will go down now today 1st semi final or if it wins today the other super-4 winner will knock down Mumbai to win the Championship of IPL-3 lioke the Deccan Chargers or Royal Challengers of Bangalore..... (this is only a calculatory guess, let's watch it all from tonight 8pm IST at setmax tv)
April 23, 2010, Hyderabad India..... "Gilly Must Retire" (infosafe news special)
All that hue and cry, the bulls , the heat and the beat..... its all over now as the Hyped Deccan Chargers carelessly lost to Chennai team on 22/4/2010 the game which stands challenge to the overhauled "Gilly", he never showed a scintillating performance both with the bat or behind wickets as he did against Imran Khan in the 50-50 world cup earlier, if one observes deep Gilchrist must retire from international cricket and pave way for the strong meen like Ponting etc.
The tussle of politico IPL-3 almost all the big-bosses are under scan for corruption and malfunction?? including the famous GMR for Dare devils team, the a-betting huge expenses mishandled have drawn criticism from even the Prime Minister Mr. Manmohan Singh as on 22/4/2010. Will IPL survive further or not its time to tell.
Wow, how , and Awe the Chennai Super Kings have really come out of the way to perhaaps defeat Mumbai team which isboasting it performance but Sachin will be a doubtful starter on Sunday 24 April Finals of DLF IPL-3 in Mumbai?? Lets keenly watch whether Kings can take and conquer the un-beaten Mumbai, if its so then the proud of Harbhajan will be tamed?????
10 pm IST Navi Mumbai, India IPL-3 Finals turning surprise with star studded start, in the 16 th over CSK making 19 runs of the over and Mumbai teams Bhajji Spin mot doing so well it can be easily said CSK will emerge winners tonight.
April 29, 2010, Hyderabad India,
Former cricketer Wasim Akram yesterday said that with start of World cup 20/20 now in South Africa the focus will much be on the deffending cahampions Pakistan and the raring Indaian team, whereas Afridi is an ideal captain ahaving proved the mettle, now M. S. Dhoni captain of India feels quite sure of Indian team contributing best for win despite of its "fatigue" factor which is as good as nil; now both teams have power of spin and of course there are new and fresh teams like Afghanistan cricket which is welcome force.
May 3, 2010, While Indian team ahas enetered in Super 8 of the tournament with 2 wins against Afghanistan and South Africa, the Kallis team showed yesterday the same problems as they did in Indian soil, lacking the 'concentrato' allowing India to 185 runs later only Kallis batting upto mark with 63 runs? and failing in last moments it has become their habit.
STARCRICKET channel showed exclusively in the worldcup 20/20 mach today at 6.55 pm IST at the Barbados stadium while Pakistan batting Akmal hitting to clear the fences, a Frog came out on the ground seemingly watching Akmal's batting, this frog was shown inspecting the ground for over oneminute on starcricket channel; isn't it strange cricket is getting too familiar with live-in animals ??? Ha..... Haaaa. Today on May 7, Indiawill take on Oz team at 7 pm IST.
DC, Hyderabad has ibdicated that 20/20 Worldcup is under lacklustre and non-glamour arousing not much TRPs because it does not have too many celebrities at once. But the extravaganza'sare only breeding luxurious expenditure which is falling burden to parents not getting paid up by their earning children ?????

May 12, 2010, Wednesday, The Team India story is all over now..... thanks to opposition team that helped the crash yesterday while India was hoping on many iff's and but's. Plainmly it is IPL-3 that ate away Indian chances for victory which of late is admitted by MDS Dhoni but whats the use if you wake upo later. He must be singing now the famous song "wake me up when September ends"..... But Pakistan team is still alive and has reached semifinals according to DC News, India here.

Our viewers have enjoyed well the T20 world cup '10 series as well in which England triupmhed as we said it exactly 24 hrs before finals were held. We also had hinted out the excessive cricket IPL etc that diminished chances of Team India due to big-fatigue but here is a piece of supportive assertion from none other than Michael Holding the speedester of just yesterday,
Michael Holding did not watch a single match of the T20 world cup in Caribbean, refused to call it Cricket and DOES NOT CONSIDER IPL HOT PROPERTY KIERON POLLARD a cricketer.
Not one ball, I don't watch T20, it is dumbing down cricket. They should find another name for it, said the 56 years old living legend.... "Pollard in my opinion is not a cricketer.... alluding to the fact that 25 year old allrounder who is costliest player on the IPL roster may be a star but is yet to make his test debut ( a report).
