Anybody watching IPL? this year's ipl is probably the best so far...many last ball finishes and no predictable winner till the last leg got underway...I hope to see Mumbai Indians winning,they clinched win from jaws of defeat in many matches and are better prepared than most in dealing with crunch situation.....

Hi guys last month couple of months were special from cricket pov as it took its nascent steps in USA.A twenty-20 match was played between West Indies and New Zealand at lauderhill, Florida which the windies won.However its interesting to know that its not the first international to be played on US soil.The first match was played back in 1800's.There is also an instance where George Washington participated in the match with his troops at "valley forge" during revolution.In 1844, US played against Canada in front of crowd which was 20000,wagers of around $120000 were placed on the outcome of the match.

With the history behind them will US take to cricket?

India are U-19 WC champs...India defeated Australia in world cup final at Townsvillie,Australia by 6 wickets.The India captain Unmukt Chand scored the match winning hundred.

Also it was the new look middle order at Hyderabad.No Rahul Dravid at no.3 and VVS at 5,for the past 15 yrs we are used to them. India winning against the kiwis by huge margin,it was again the magic of spin,Ashwin and ojha did the light work of taking wickets.
However it was comforting to see Pujara scoring the maiden test hundred at no 3.
he's the guy who can do wonders like the great wall did.we need another one to fill the shoes of VVS.

England are very weak without Kevin Peterson...with all his dram he is also a match winner....they should keep aside their ego and play for the game....however England are very weak against spin.

Yes the big games have started....sorry Del Boy but England lose again....some erratic shots up the order did it for England against windies ...

today a big game for India against Aussies...see what that cummins guy can do after his rant in the press....

Revenge series under way from today India in good position 320 odd for 4.Pujara on 98 no n yuvraj 20 odd,hope they carry on....Swann bowled beautifully picking all 4 wickets bowling sehwag,kohli n gambhir,slightly dissappointed by English strategy seems they were bowling from only one end,they should have picked monty ahead of patel.This is the Indian pitch i think will wear n tear to form what is called a 'rank' turner.Hope to see poms getting the same treatment we got in our last tour in England.
