India vs New Zealand 2nd T20 Highlights

February 28th, 2009 Comments Off on India vs New Zealand 2nd T20 Highlights Posted in 20-20, India, Match Highlights, New Zealand, Twenty 20

Watch cricket highlights: India vs New Zealand 2nd T20 game from Wellington.

Scoreline: India 149. Yuvraj Singh 50 (34). NZ make it off the last ball – Brendon McCullum 69 no, Jesse Ryder 26 (15), Ross Taylor 27.

The Indian batting attempted singles and twos after the initial burst but were throttled by a brilliant spell by Daniel Vettori (4-21-1). In fact 12 of those 21 runs conceded came off two Yuvraj sixes who looked lucky to not have been out first ball to Vettori. His knock stood out in stark contrast to Dhoni, who yet again as he has in the last year and a half – failed to get his big hits away. Having batted through the innings he managed 28 off 30 balls and earned sarcastic posters from the crowd in the process.

The New Zealand chase took off with Jesse Ryder (who looks more respectable with a bat and helmet), but it was in the end all about Brendon f***in McCullum. NZ had the game in control but the spinners (Harbhajan Singh in particular: 4-15-1) kept India in it. One might have mixed views on Dhoni the batsman of the last year, but as captain he’s got it right most of the time. Today with 3 overs to go, he threw Irfan Pathan who’d conceded 25 runs in 2 overs into the cauldron – to give this kind of a moment to a player who most would treat with sympathy considering the last few years of his career – was fantastic to watch. And Pathan brought India right back into it with two wickets and hardly any runs conceded. It all came down to McCullum eventually, with 9 needed off 3 lending a super finish to the game.

India vs New Zealand 1st T20 Highlights

Watch cricket highlights: India vs New Zealand T20 Highlights from Christchurch played on February 25, 2009.

 

Scoreline: India 162. Suresh Raina 61 (43). NZ win with relative ease with an over to go – Brendon McCullum 56, Guptill 41 (28), Ross Taylor 31 (20), Jacob Oram 29 (15)

 

Sehwag pulled out the costliest 1st over in intl T20 (19 runs) with 3 huge sixes off his 1st 3 deliveries faced. In fact, the Indians whacked 13 6’s in contrast to a total of 6 fours, while appearing that they too believed in the crush-em hype riding this tour. Could have been a humbling 1st knock in NZ for India, had it not been for Raina picking things up right at the end. Yusuf Pathan also strutted his stuff with 3 huge blows before Jacob Oram did what Adam Voges did during the Aus vs NZ T20 game to end Yusuf’s quest for six sixes in an over.

 

The NZ chase centred around a subdued McCullum (relative to, say, the Bangalore vs Kolkata IPL match). India never seriously were allowed to threaten cos of the consistent partnerships on a day that saw Oram too, announce his return. With McCullum batting through the innings, a win was obvious – how fast remained the only question. By an over was the answer.

India vs Sri Lanka T20 Highlights 10 Feb 2009

February 11th, 2009 Comments Off on India vs Sri Lanka T20 Highlights 10 Feb 2009 Posted in 20-20, India, Match Highlights, Sri Lanka, Twenty 20

Cricket highlights: The 1st and only T20 game – Sri Lanka vs India 2009 – played at Colombo on Feb 10, 2009.

Yusuf Pathan is the Man of the Match

Dilshan : "I thought 170 was defendable. We started well, picked some early wickets, but both Yusuf and Irfan played really well. We conceded too many extras, that eventually made the difference."

Dhoni: "Their spinners bowled really well, and although our batsmen struggled, it’s a good learning curve for them. There are lots of youngsters in our team and stiff matches like these is a great learning experience."

Result India won by 3 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)

ICL world series called off due to Mumbai Blast

November 27th, 2008 Comments Off on ICL world series called off due to Mumbai Blast Posted in 20-20, Cricket News, ICL, Twenty 20
The terror attacks in Mumbai have forced the cancellation of the ongoing ICL world series in Ahmedabad, a senior official confirmed. ICL representatives met Gujarat government officials over the future of the tournament following Wednesday’s terror strikes in Mumbai, and later decided to call off the event.

"We have decided to cancel the World Series in the best interests of all involved, particularly the teams," Kiran More, an executive board member of the ICL, told Cricinfo. "The executive board decided that it was not appropriate to continue. We were ready with the extra security but felt the atmosphere, in the wake of the Mumbai events, was just not right to go ahead with the matches."

 

More stressed that all players and officials had been given adequate security while the chairman of the ICL’s executive board, Kapil Dev, said: "The teams have shown confidence in the ICL management and have supported the decision to call off the tour."

 

The ICL had on Thursday morning decided to call off the evening’s match between Pakistan and Bangladesh teams in Ahmedabad. The world series, involving India XI, Pakistan XI, Bangladesh XI and World XI, was scheduled to end on Saturday.

November 26th, 2008 Comments Off on ICL 20s World Series, ICL Bangladesh XI v ICL India XI, 3rd Match, Highlights. Posted in 20-20, ICL, Match Highlights, Twenty 20

This is must win game for ICL Bangladesh and they achieved it to stay in the ICL World Series. Aftab Ahmed and Alok Kapali played handy contributions in a five-wicket, last-over win, but it was Shahriar Nafees’ splendid unbeaten 70 from 54 balls that finished the job in tense fashion.

Bangladesh XI 165 for 5 (Nafees 70*, Kapali 44) beat India XI 164 for 9 (Sathish 44, Mosharraf 3-48) by five wickets

ICL Bangladesh win by 5 wickets with 3 balls to spare
