0भारत तीसरे टेस्ट में पहल करनी

में दो टेस्ट, 1–0 to India. England’s poor sum­mer con­tin­ued apace today with a shock­ing (sorry, भय उत्पन्न करनेवाला) col­lapse after lunch today to hand the vis­it­ors the ini­ti­at­ive going for­ward into the rest of the series. On cur­rent evid­ence it would be hard to see past India win­ning the series.

0कैसे इंग्लैंड की तरह एक समस्या का प्रबंधन करने के लिए

In a way I am almost glad Eng­land failed to grind out a draw against Sri Lanka. Had they done so it would have been seen by many as some sort of mira­cu­lous escape. दीवार से पीठ, sto­ic defence when the chips were down. यह नहीं होना चाहिए, मगर, detract from a dire per­form­ance. For the ump­teenth time the bats­men have let us down. The last Ashes on Eng­lish soil were won des­pite, not because of our bats­men and the over­all pic­ture hasn’t improved since then.… पढ़ें पूर्ण लेख

0सचित्र सेन एक Mankades था (कह रही है कि कुछ बियर के बाद की कोशिश!)

Crick­et is a sport in which most fol­low­ers expect their her­oes to adhere to a high­er stand­ard of fair play and sports­man­ship.
The recent incid­ent of ‘Mankad­ing’ (जो पृथ्वी पर कि मुहावरा गढ़ा?) – when Sri Lanka’s Sachi­thra Sen­anayake ran out England’s Jos But­tler who had strayed out of his crease at the non-striker’s end at a key point in the final and decid­ing ODI in the series was dis­ap­point­ing to see and thank­fully remains very rare.
The last incid­ent I can remem­ber is when Kapil Dev ran out South Africa’s Peter Kirsten, appar­ently without warn­ing: एचटीटीपी://www.youtube.com/watch?v = RzbFy_elb8k
Dif­fer­ing accounts of Tuesday’s shambles say Sen­anayake warned But­tler twice or just the once. किसी भी तरह से, it wasn’t crick­et. The bowl­er shouldn’t have done it and the cap­tain should have over-ruled the appeal. वह नहीं था, यह तो हम खेल पर एक दबाव की लागत गिनती करने के लिए छोड़ दिया जाता हुआ.
मैं क्या पसंद नहीं है, मगर, is Eng­land using this unsa­voury con­tro­versy to shield yet anoth­er highly mixed per­form­ance dur­ing a ODI series.
Sri Lanka are a decent side – but without the wick­et tak­ing machine that was Mut­ti­ah Mur­a­lithar­an in the line-up and home advant­age you would have expec­ted Eng­land to win the series.… पढ़ें पूर्ण लेख

0अंतरराष्ट्रीय क्रिकेट परिषद के लोगोटेस्ट मैच क्रिकेट - हम इसे कैसे सहेज सकता हूँ?

वापस पिछले साल मार्च में (वाह, सच है कि पिछले एक महीने पहले??) मैं टेस्ट मैच क्रिकेट के भविष्य के बारे में एक संक्षिप्त पत्र लिखे और क्या वर्षों में खेल के लिए हो सकता आने के लिए. Inspired by watch­ing a fas­cin­at­ing dual between bat and ball as Bangladesh took on Sri Lanka I waxed lyr­ic­al about the game and the subtle battles and tac­tic­al rami­fic­a­tions that make test crick­et, well test­ing. Unfor­tu­nately, you may recall dear read­er, the art­icle was nev­er­the­less based on a sad note – the crowd – or more accur­ately the lack of the crowd – rejoicing in the con­test.

कई बुद्धिमान (और कुछ मूर्ख) sages have put their think­ing caps on to pon­der how to bet­ter push the claims of test match crick­et. Test match crick­et is a dis­cip­line that must not be allowed to die. It is the very essence of crick­et and at the very apex of the won­der­ful game. If test match crick­et dies then so too does the heart and soul of the sport.… पढ़ें पूर्ण लेख

0मूर गर्मियों वर्ग की जरूरत में इंग्लैंड

Apo­lo­gies one and all for a lack of recent mus­ings – it’s all due to a new arrival in the house­hold which has meant my wak­ing (and sleep­ing) hours are com­pletely dom­in­ated by bottle feed­ing ses­sions and nappy changes – yes a little bambino has arrived. Give her about 18 years and she’ll be play­ing for Eng­land.
Any­way; to busi­ness.
कुंआ, to para­phrase Wil­li­am Shakespeare some­what, that was a winter of dis­con­tent for Eng­land. After pretty inept per­form­ances in the Ashes most would have thought it couldn’t get any worse. It did – the humi­li­at­ing defeat against the Neth­er­lands (even if it was a ‘dead rub­ber’) prov­ing the coup de grâce. Before and since that final sham­bol­ic out­ing there have been some high pro­file cas­u­al­ties — gone are coach Andy Flower, middle order main­stay Jonath­an Trott and spin king Graeme Swann. And then of course there is the whole saga around Kev­in Pietersen. Glove­man Matt Pri­or will also be nervously look­ing over his shoulder as oth­ers threaten his place in the side.… पढ़ें पूर्ण लेख

There’s an old anec­dote in the crick­et­ing career of Har­old ‘Dick­ie’ Bird in which he hit a cen­tury for York­shire in one match and found him­self dropped for the next.

With an aver­age just over 20 his first-class career was hardly spec­tac­u­lar but as an inter­na­tion­al umpire he went on to argu­ably be the best in the busi­ness.

He was well liked and enter­tain­ing, bring­ing his nat­ive York­shire straight talk­ing no non­sense approach to the pitch. Dick­ie was also seen as com­pletely neut­ral who­ever was play­ing, des­pite a deep-rooted love of both county and coun­try.… पढ़ें पूर्ण लेख

0ऑस्ट्रेलिया दक्षिण अफ्रीका के खिलाफ लड़ाई में पर भाप

When Eng­land squared up to Aus­tralia in the last Ashes series I, अन्य के जैसे, thought the vis­it­ors would retain the urn dur­ing the five match series. It was always going to a tough­er battle than the sum­mer show­down but vic­tory was expec­ted.

Play­er for play­er Eng­land were just too strong, वे नहीं थे? उस समय पर, with the standout excep­tion of middle-order maes­tro Michael Clarke, a com­bined XI of the two sides would have been dom­in­ated by the three lions. Oth­er than skip­per Clarke who would have made the com­bined side? Per­haps Dav­id Warner for Michael Car­berry? A fit Ryan Har­ris in for either Chris Trem­lett or Tim Bresnan? Cer­tainly the former, prob­ably the lat­ter. A place for Shane Wat­son? हो सकता है - लेकिन कौन है वह जगह होगी? इसके चेहरे पर, मगर, Eng­land cer­tainly appeared the stronger out­fit.… पढ़ें पूर्ण लेख

0राख से राख, इंग्लैंड धूल करने के लिए

क्या मैं के बारे में मैं ऊपर से नीचे मारा जा सकता है कहने के लिए कर रहा हूँ ... लेकिन मुझे खुशी है कि इस एशेज श्रृंखला के एक छोर पर है के लिए. काफी बस ऑस्ट्रेलिया उनके अलग अलग हिस्सों और इंग्लैंड की राशि की तुलना में कहीं बेहतर निभाई है किया गया है, बड़े हिस्से के लिए, बिल्कुल पैशाचिक.

0ऑस्ट्रेलिया मुक्केबाजी चालाक

अंग्रेजी सर्दियों एक भयानक बात कर रहे हैं. ठंडा और गीला, मौसम भी कोई घर क्रिकेट का मतलब.

Christ­mas is one shin­ing light in the fog of the cold and to add to this the thought of an annu­al test match that starts on Box­ing Day and usu­ally held under blue skies and warm tem­per­at­ures is one that stirs the ima­gin­a­tion and one that I will raise a cold beer to.

Box­ing Day tests have been held every year since 1980 (के सिवाय 1989 जब एक एक दिवसीय मैच बनाम श्रीलंका बजाय खेला गया था (बू - एड) and at the Mel­bourne Crick­et Club in Aus­tralia – aka the MCG). They have also been dom­in­ated by some massive crowds (which have approached six fig­ures on occa­sion).... पढ़ें पूर्ण लेख
