India vs New Zealand Day 5 Highlights 2nd Test

March 31st, 2009 Comments Off on India vs New Zealand Day 5 Highlights 2nd Test Posted in India, Match Highlights, New Zealand, Test Match

Watch cricket highlights – India vs New Zealand 2nd Napier Test Day 5 highlights.

Scoreline: India 476/4 – VVS Laxman 124 no, Gautham Gambhir 137, Yuvraj Singh 54 no. Match drawn.

With Gambhir eating up time and Laxman scoring as he normally does in the morning session, both time and the NZ lead were gradually wiped out until a stalemate situation forced the two teams to agree to a draw. Eventually, the post-tea session was mainly an exhibition in batting. Lovely hundred by VVS while Yuvraj helped himself to a 50 before calling it quits for the match.

India vs New Zealand Day 4 Highlights 2nd Test

Scoreline: India 252/2. Gautham Gambhir 102 no Sachin Tendulkar 58 Rahul Dravid 62

There’s a reason you still back this Indian batting line-up despite following on and that was on show today. It wasn’t that the NZ bowlers or fielding was lame. In fact the bowling was for the most part disciplined with Martin moving the ball and off the pitch and the spinners bowling tight. Just a combination of good (Gambhir and Dravid) and great (Tendulkar) batting. Dravid despite pulling out a super shot here and there was mostly in flared-nostrils-pained-look mode – 62 off 220. A little unnecessary considering this was only the 4th day, but what Dravid’s knock did was give the NZ bowlers no opening at all considering they’d have walked into the morning session expecting to wrap this up today. He did get a bad decision but he did also get away off a no-ball-that-never-was in the 1st innings. Gambhir played very well for a follow-on situation – mostly looking to score except when he got stuck in the 80s, something he has often done in the past.

Tendulkar walked out in coaching-lessons mode and played as well as he ever has – always looking to score – in fact the main reason India only trail by 62 going into Day 5.

South Africa vs Australia, 2nd T20, Live Cricket Streaming

March 29th, 2009 Comments Off on South Africa vs Australia, 2nd T20, Live Cricket Streaming Posted in 20-20, Australia, South Africa, Twenty 20

South Africa proved to be a better side other day in 1st T20 and game switched both sides many times during the course of match. Let’s hope we will have one more exciting T20 between these two teams.

Toss Australia have won the toss and they will bowl first.

Team changes: Three changes for Australia. Brett Geeves, Mitchell Johnson and Michael Hussey make way for Ben Laughlin, Nathan Bracken and Callum Ferguson. We’ll let you know about the South Africans shortly.

SA are experimenting like crazy. Yusuf Abdulla, Roelof van der Merwe and Johann Louw get a game.

South Africa: Johan Botha (capt), Robin Peterson, Herschelle Gibbs, AB de Villiers, Justin Ontong, JP Duminy, Mark Boucher, Johann Louw, Roelof van der Merwe, Albie Morkel, Yusuf Abdulla

Australia: Ricky Ponting (capt), Michael Clarke, Nathan Bracken, Callum Ferguson, Brad Haddin (wk), David Hussey, Ben Laughlin, Cameron White, David Warner, Shane Harwood, James Hopes.

So Steyn, Amla, Parnell and van Jaarsveld get a rest. Man to man, Australia look stronger and should start as favourites.

India vs New Zealand 2nd Test Highlights Day 3

March 29th, 2009 Comments Off on India vs New Zealand 2nd Test Highlights Day 3 Posted in India, Match Highlights, New Zealand, Test Match

Watch cricket highlights – India vs New Zealand – Day 3 highlights from the 2nd Napier Test.

Scoreline: India 305 all out – VVS Laxman 76, Rahul Dravid 83, Sachin Tendulkar 49. India follow on and were 47/1.

India resumed today with Dravid and Tendulkar bearing the cumbersome onus of battling out a draw for India.Tendulkar was divine while he was at it – Dravid was semi-vintage in patches and scrappy in others – that was still good enough to get him 83. But the best batting of the day came from VVS who pulled out all his flicks and drives.

The good thing though India ended up following on was that everyone looked pretty intent on getting on with the game and not stepping into that resigned tortured mode we’ve seen so often over the years.

Some of the NZ commentators described Sehwag’s dismissal as arrogant but it’s that sort of game that set up the recent famous win over England at Chennai. If it hadn’t come off that day he’d have looked dumb. But since it did, he was given the Man of the Match despite Tendulkar’s hundred that won the game on Day 5.

It’s still a little too early to describe this test as being gone from India’s point of view – the follow on might actually work to their advantage.

West Indies vs England, 4th ODI, Live Cricket

West Indies lead the series 2-1 and had it not Dyson misread the D/L sheet WI may have won the series already. Anyways going by the current England form, series win for WI is very much possible unless England turn it out around. They (England team) are already feeling terrible and morally down and few even said they want to get back home as soon as they can and with such an attitude it won’t be easy to come back.

India vs New Zealand 2nd Test Highlights Day 1

Watch cricket highlights – India vs New Zealand day 1 highlights from the 2nd Napier Test.

Scoreline: NZ 351/4 – Ross Taylor 151 (204), Jesse Ryder 137 no (220)

The Indians messed up in the field but the Bangalore boys (had to ring that in) were good enough to notch up big hundreds, after coming together with NZ 23/3. In fact, even with the let-offs and numerous close calls, when they played, they played beautifully – Ross Taylor in particular. Ryder hung back a bit but importantly is not out. Ishanth Sharma and Zaheer Khan were super in the morning but as the day progressed, with the fielding lapses and the batting quality, the bowlers sort of got jaded before some late excitement towards end of play.

Team-wise – Dhoni was out for India with a bad back, while Jeetan Patel came in for Kyle Mills

India vs New Zealand, Day 1, 2nd Test, Live Cricket

March 26th, 2009 Comments Off on India vs New Zealand, Day 1, 2nd Test, Live Cricket Posted in India, Live Cricket Streaming, Live Matches, New Zealand, Test Match

India outplayed New Zealand in 1st test and they not only lead the series 1-0 but also have opportunity to win test series for the 1st time in New Zealand. Indian team is very much aware of the importance of winning the series to take Indian cricket to a newer heights and Dhoni already mentioned they will put their best effort to win the series with this game. Most of the Indian start batsman are performing well through out the series and that’s a big headache for kiwi bowlers. Also they have some problems in batting department and Vettori hopes they can put a good show.

India vs New Zealand Day 4 Highlights 1st Test

March 21st, 2009 Comments Off on India vs New Zealand Day 4 Highlights 1st Test Posted in India, Match Highlights, New Zealand, Test Match

Watch cricket highlights – India vs New Zealand Day 4 Highlights of the 1st Hamilton Test played on March 21, 2009.

Scoreline: NZ 279 all out – Brendon McCullum 84. India 39/0 in 5.2 overs win the 1st Test.

With Harbhajan Singh hauling 6 the NZ innings did look like it would head towards an innings win for India. A fine knock by McCullum however forced India out to bat again. Dhoni however made some strange decisions with NZ 8 down – the field was spread for Brendon who refused singles and easily found them off the last couple of balls of the over. In fact it took 11 overs before Ian O’Brien got to face the first ball of an over. With McCullum if he wants to hit a boundary mroe often than not he will. What’s the point in trying to save the runs or offer him a single which he repeatedly shows disinterest in. Anyway a good win for India considering its taken something like 33 years for them to win a test in New Zealand.
