We need not talk about Indian obsession with cricket. And when it comes to Sachin Tendulkar, the God of Cricket, everyone is interested in knowing about his house at Bandra, Mumbai. Here are some videos and pictures about the house where the legendary cricketer resides.
Rotation policy by Dhoni is an investment for future. After wining the world cup in 2011, India is already planning for the next world cup in 2015 in Australia. After a miserable start in Test series, India seems to get momentum in ODI.
“What we want is, all the players should be fit by the time we come into the finals,” Dhoni said. “All of them should be scoring runs by that time. It’s a good exposure. Rohit (Rohit Sharma) is a very talented guy. Manoj Tiwary is on the bench. He scored in the last series that he played, so we are giving ample chances to them because these are players who, for sure, will come back to Australia once we play the next World Cup. There is no surety that some of us who are playing will return, Sachin (Sachin Tendulkar) or Virender Sehwag or even Gautam Ghambhir, all of us are 30-plus, and it’s big out-fields out here. So it’s about giving the youngsters a fair exposure as to how difficult it is or how easy it is, or how different it is to play here.”
Bangladesh 205 (Tamim Iqbal 44, Botha 3-32) beat Ireland 178 (Shafiul Islam 4-21) by 27 runs ICC Cricket World Cup Group B, Dhaka
Bangladesh’s bowlers held their nerve to atone for the failures of their batsman, as the pluck of the Irish proved insufficient to overcome the most fervent atmosphere of the World Cup so far. In a gripping, low-scoring encounter at Mirpur, Bangladesh flirted with disaster as they squandered a flying start from Tamim Iqbal to crash to 205 all out, and when Ireland reached 93 for 3 at the halfway mark of their reply, they were well on course for a hugely deserved victory. However, six wickets for the Bangladeshi spin quartet set the stage for a flying finish from Shafiul Islam, who claimed 4 for 21 in eight hostile and reverse-swinging overs, to seal a wildly acclaimed victory by 27 runs with five overs to spare.
Bangalore Royal Challengers set the ball rolling for the attitude-shift in cricket and mass influx of professionalism when they sacked Charu Sharma, and publicly humiliated their skipper, Rahul Dravid, in the first season of the Indian Premier League. The radical moves sent out the signals to the biggest of names get in line, get corporate, or face the music.
It is learnt that Sourav Ganguly didn’t find favour with franchises because of his questionable behaviour. Throwback to the three seasons of IPL and Ganguly and KKR were actively feeding news to the hungry. From John Buchanan’s multiple-captain theory, Brendon McCullum’s ascendancy to captaincy, obituaries written for Ganguly, KKR’s abysmal show under him, owner Shah Rukh Khan’s frustration that saw him leaving South Africa midway through IPL-2, and ghost writers giving away dressing room information.
Having emerged the most successful India captain, the 2000s is remembered as the decade of ‘dadagiri’.
However, the question beckons: What is it about Ganguly that made him a misfit in the future of the sport?
