Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni retained the top position while his deputy Yuvraj Singh continued as the second best in the latest ICC ODI Player Rankings released on Wednesday.
Apart from Dhoni and Yuvraj, injured Indian opener Virender Sehwag was ranked seventh in the top 10 batsmen list.
Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar and Gautam Gambhir are at the 14th and 17th spot respectively in the chart.
However, no Indian features among top 10 ODI bowlers with… Continue

England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff, playing the last Ashes series Test at The Oval, will undergo a major reconstructive surgery on his knee after the match, which could force him out of cricket until next summer.
Flintoff has been booked in for surgery on Tuesday to cure a chronic knee problem that has already brought an end to his Test career, said the Daily Telegraph.
Flintoff will undergo a surgery similar to the one carried out on former England captain… Continue

If John Wright could become the man that replaces the sacked Kolkata Knight Riders coach, John Buchanan, then it is some really good news for Kolkata Knight Riders and better times ahead for the team which under-performed in the last two editions of the Indian Premier League.
They have already started working on the skills of its domestic players and are making efforts to get the combinations right this time around with Mr. Wright!
If Wright does take up the job and Sourav… Continue

One persistent complaint of mine is the East versus West cliche in cricket journalism. A glaring display of this came in the aftermath of Pakistan's World Twenty20 win (I'm not referring to any particular article for these sentiments were present all over the place). In this art versus science view of cricket, Pakistan's victory in the World Twenty20 was a triumph for flair over persistence (this sentiment was especially on display after the… Continue

Yuvraj Singh has been a revelation in the shortest format of the game as the England batsman Kevin Peitersen rightly said that he was impressed with Yuvraj Singh and hopes that he will take T20 cricket to the next level.
There is no better sight in cricket then watching Yuvraj Singh go ballistic.
It is not just the number of sixes but the ease with which he dispatches the ball all across the ground- that defines Yuvraj Singh’s batsmanship.
He has been an… Continue

It was a dismal performance by the Englishmen who let throw away The Ashes with an extremely below par performance at Headingley. But all credit to the Aussies who finished the task in just three days to level the series.
With only the Oval Test remaining and comprehensive defeat by Aussies in the fourth test, the spirits in the England camp will be low. Australia looks to have peaked just at the right time. The Australian players looked desperate for a win at Headingley and did not… Continue

There have been some fairly loud whispers from across the border about bribery allegations hurting the Pakistan team on the tour of Sri Lanka. Quite surprisingly, Tauqir Zia, a former chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, has lent his voice to this campaign against a team that has lost the Test and ODI series to Kumar Sangakkara and his men.
It is about time that people realise it is important to stop crying “Wolf!” every time their favourite team ends up on the losing side. They must… Continue

Pakistan team is known to be very inconsistent. They won the ICC World Twenty20 in England a few months back but their performance on the tour to Sri Lanka has been simply miserable.
Pakistan lost the third One Day International more embarrassingly than the second ODI when they were dismissed for a paltry score.
Despite, the 19 year-old Umar Akmal’s effort of 66, Pakistan lost the third ODI by six wickets. The big names did not rise to the occasion once again. The seniors… Continue
