IND vs NZ: Shikhar Dhawan, Ishant Sharma injuries spell trouble for Virat Kohli

News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
New Delhi: The Indian cricket team on Tuesday grappled with a couple of major injury concerns ahead of their away assignment against New Zealand with opener Shikhar Dhawan ruled out of the T20 series and senior pacer Ishant Sharma certain to miss the Tests. Dhawan was ousted from the five-match T20 series starting on Friday, due to a shoulder injury he suffered while fielding in the third ODI against Australia in Bangalore. Ishant, on the other hand, was declared unfit for the Tests starting February 21 owing to an ankle tear sustained during a Ranji Trophy game on Monday. Ishant Sharma "Yes, he [Dhawan] has been ruled out of the T20 series. A replacement will be announced soon" a BCCI official told PTI. "Ishant's MRI report shows a Grade 3 ankle tear and it is serious. He has been advised six weeks of rest and rehabilitation. It is indeed a big blow. Six weeks is the maximum but a minimum three weeks is must," said Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA) general secretary Vinod..

IND vs AUS: Commanding knocks by Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli give India series win in Bangalore

2 days ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Banglore: There was a typically busy effort from Steve Smith in the first part of the India-Australia series decider but it was the flair of Rohit Sharma and the class of Virat Kohli that won on the night. Chasing the stiff 287-run target set by the Australians here on Sunday night, Rohit and Kohli made batting look ridiculously easy on a track that was not altogether in favour of the batsmen, to take the Indian team to yet another ODI series triumph. Smith's ninth ODI ton was no doubt a superb effort, but the former Australian skipper would be the first to admit that his knock paled in comparison to Rohit's 29th century. The Mumbaikar's stroke-filled 119 (128b, 8x4, 6x6) and his dominating 137-run second-wicket stand (145b) with his skipper Kohli (89, 91b, 8x4) meant that India were home and dry with seven wickets and 15 balls to spare. That they didn't even need the services of opener Shikhar Dhawan who, left the field early in the Australian innings after a bad fall that damaged his..

Blunder at No. 4!

3 days ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
India made a blunder when they placed their batting maestro at No. 4 in the opening ODI against Australia. Don't weaken a strength to strengthen a weakness is a pretty wise adage but India ignored it and paid a hefty price. Virat Kohli is the No. 1 short form player wherever he bats but at No. 3 he's ideally placed to fully utilise all his skills to the team's best advantage. In ODIs, the three batsmen most likely to score a century should be at the top of the order with the opportunity to face the bulk of the deliveries. This theory applies to all teams but in Kohli's case, and especially against Australia, it's critical to adhere to that policy. Australia has two of the best pace bowlers in the game and the Indian batsmen best equipped to challenge them are Kohli and Rohit Sharma. If Kohli gets on top of both Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc then batting becomes easier against the remainder of the Australian attack. A rampant Kohli against the Australian pace pair also means skipper Aa..
