Injured Wriddhiman Saha's Australian tour chances in jeopardy too?

5 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Wriddhiman Saha's shoulder injury has put a big question mark over the injury management process of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and like it is often the case in Indian cricket — there exists a shortage of transparency. The wicketkeeper-batsman from Bengal was believed to be nursing a thumb injury that he sustained during the last IPL, causing his absence in the historic recent India v Afghanistan Test at Bangalore, his third injury lay-off in 18 months. Far too seriousHowever, it has now come to light that Saha's injury woes are far more serious. "Till he injured his thumb, he did not realise that he also had a shoulder injury. He played the IPL with an injured shoulder. The injury has now been aggravated and has put his career on the line," a source close to Saha told mid-day yesterday. "Not having a clue as to what lies ahead of him is frustrating. He does not know when he can resume any cricketing activity," the source added. Saha, 33, may even miss out o..
                 

Balvinder Singh Sandhu resigns from Mumbai Cricket Association's CIC

News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Former India pacer Balvinder Singh Sandhu has resigned from Mumbai Cricket Association's (MCA) Cricket Improvement Committee (CIC) citing "personal reasons". This is the second time he has resigned from the CIC after he first tendered his resignation in 2012. Sandhu shot a letter to the MCA yesterday morning informing them about his decision. "Yes, I have resigned from the CIC due to personal reasons," Sandhu confirmed to mid-day. His decision to step down has clearly not gone down well with the MCA officials. "If he had prior commitments, then why did he take up the assignment in the first place? He should have been aware of his plans well in advance. Now, we have to look for a replacement in the CIC," an MCA official said. Apart from being occupied for a movie being made on the 1983 World Cup victory, Sandhu also works for the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore. He was head coach of the Mumbai North Team during the inaugural T20 Mumbai League, but within a week's time he s..
                 

Patrick Cummins to try his best to stop Virat Kohli scoring hundreds vs Aus

17 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Ahead of India's tour Down Under later this year, Australian quick Pat Cummins has praised skipper Virat Kohli as a "really passionate" player while conceding that his bowling attack will target the "prized" wicket of the right-hander. Cummins recently found himself in the middle of a storm when he was widely quoted as saying: "My brave, bold prediction; I'd say I think Virat Kohli is not going to get a hundred and we're going to knock them off over here". Clarifying his comments, the pacer said his comments were misunderstood as he just wished that the Indian did not score a century during India's tour, that comprises three Twenty20 Internationals, four Tests and three One-day Internationals, starting with the first T20I on November 21. "I was almost trying to do the opposite to the way they were perceived. I was trying to pay him a huge compliment and say that my big wish list for the summer was he doesn't score a hundred," Cummins told cricket.com.au. "He's obviously so important ..

Rangana Herath warns South African team to expect more spin

19 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Rangana Herath warned South Africa Thursday to expect yet more spin in the second Test after the visitors were skittled for their lowest total since the Proteas' readmission to international cricket. Sri Lanka are chasing their first Test series win against the Proteas since 2006 and need just a draw to clinch the honours against the world's second ranked Test side. South Africa lost the opening Test in Galle inside three days after being dispatched for 126 in the first innings and 73 in the second. Herath said pitch conditions were ripe for a repeat of last week's drubbing, in which the left-arm spinner took five wickets and off-spinner Dilruwan Perera returned overall match figures of 10-78. "If you see the surface, it's dry. It will be more of a spin friendly surface," the 40-year-old veteran spinner said ahead of the final Test starting Friday in Colombo. "We have Dilruwan (Perera) and if we require we also have Dhananjaya (de Silva). He couldn't bowl in Galle, but he is certainl..

Is MS Dhoni retiring? Viral clip on social media drops hints on retirement

22 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Mahendra Singh Dhoni's future has once again become fodder for speculation after the talismanic-but-currently-off-colour former India skipper sought the match ball at the end of the lost third ODI against England here. The 37-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman was seen seeking the ball from the umpires as players left the ground after India lost by eight wickets last night to go down 1-2 in the series. The act was an unusual one for Dhoni, who is more known for collecting stumps after winning matches. The 30-second clip went viral on social media and accompanying it were questions on whether the two-time World Cup-winning skipper had dropped a hint at retirement. However, sources in the team management dismissed the talk as nothing more than "rumours". Dhoni, who retired stunningly from Test cricket in the middle of India's 2014 tour of Australia, has been under the scanner of late for not being able to score as prolifically as he has been known to. His legendary finishing skills and the a..

BCCI: Two-season ban, criminal action against age fraudsters

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Age fudging could prove a lot more costly now after the Supreme Court-appointed Committee ofAdministrators (CoA) decided to increase the quantum of punishment for players found guilty. Criminal action will be initiated too. The CoA were recently briefed about the rampant age fudging in BCCI age group tournaments, where players submit false/tampered birth certificates, as part of the age verification process. As per the current rules, the BCCI can ban a player found guilty of age fraud for just one season. However, the CoA has decided on harsher punishment. "Players who are found [after a proper enquiry] to have submitted false/tampered birth certificates will be banned for two seasons," read one of the minutes of the CoA's May 18 meeting. "In addition, the BCCI may also initiate criminal action against the player and/or any other person responsible for submitting false certificates," it added.

Sourav Ganguly: KL Rahul, Ajinkya Rahane not looked after, MS Dhoni must do more

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Sourav Ganguly, speaking after India's loss in the three-match series against England at Leeds yesterday, said India are over reliant on the top-three of Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. "India are too top heavy at the moment. If your top-order doesn't get runs, then you are struggling. It is a big issue. You have to have quality like England have," said Ganguly in his post-match analysis on the official broadcaster. Ganguly said India is not giving enough chances to someone like Rahul, who was dropped for yesterday's match despite being in decent form. "Eyes closed, I will have Rahul at four. Your top four have to be the best players and you got to persist with them. Go and speak to Rahul and say 'we will give you 15 games'. Just go and play. They (the team management) are not giving enough opportunities at the moment. Rahul got the fantastic hundred at Manchester and now he was dropped. You won't be able to produce players like that.

Life isn't the same for India pacer Mohammed Shami ever since his estranged wife Hasin Jahan accused him of domestic violence and harrassment. While Shami celebrated his daughter Aaira's second birthday with the family last year, due to the issue in the family this year, Shami, who has reportedly parted ways with the family, was unable to meet his daughter this time. He shared pictures of Aaira on her third birthday (on Monday) and wrote: "How fast you grow dear, I know one day you will be big enough to change the world and make it a better place. I love you and I hope you get to enjoy your 3rd birthday. Miss you so much." India pacer Mohammed Shami was accused of domestic violence and extra-marital affairs by his wife Hasin Jahan.

India vs England: Virat Kohli aims to iron out middle-order frailties

2 days ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
One day on top of the world and the other, down in the dumps. That has been India's story on the tour so far, be it the T20Is or the ODIs. After being level in the T20I series, India clinched the decider with a commanding performance. The visitors are now in a similar situation in the ODIs and must win today's third match at Headingley to pocket their 10th successive series victory and win bragging rights ahead of the five-match Test series. Dent in confidenceBut the problem India face is that the heavy defeat in the second ODI at Lord's has dented their confidence, exposing a weak middle-order. One of the top-four batsmen need to play a big one and guide the batting right till the end, because the middle-order does not seem to have the gumption to carry the fight to the opposition if the top order fails. The Indian think-tank will surely be thinking of strengthening the middle-order, may be by bringing in Dinesh Karthik or Shreyas Iyer for Suresh Raina. But the problem is that ..

An elated Fakhar Zaman cracked a career-best 117 as Pakistan dominated with both bat and ball to win the second of five one-day internationals against Zimbabwe by nine wickets on Monday. Zaman's hundred was his second in ODI's after his barnstorming 114 in last year's Champions Trophy final against India. The win was also set up by Pakistan's seam attack, who bowled Zimbabwe out for 194. Usman Khan took four wickets and Hasan Ali chipped in with three for 32 to bowl the hosts out, Pakistan's top order batsmen then capping a commanding performance. Zaman said: "I think I am in the best form of my life." "I've been trying for many games to get another hundred and my coaches were telling me there have been too many games since you last scored a hundred. So I was trying, and today I was lucky." Zimbabwe opted to bat first on another cold morning and were put under immediate pressure by the new ball, and in particular Khan. He had both openers caught behind in his first spell, but Zimbabwe..
                 

New Zealand great Richard Hadlee to undergo cancer surgery again

News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
New Zealand cricketing great Richard Hadlee will undergo a second round of surgery after cancer spread to his liver, his wife Dianne said Monday. Hadlee's family revealed last month that he had a tumour removed after being diagnosed with bowel cancer and was expected to make a full recovery after a course of chemotherapy. Dianne Hadlee provided an update on the 67-year-old's condition on Monday. "This week, Richard will undergo further surgery after secondary cancer was discovered in his liver," she said in a statement. "Medical advice is that it's still at a very early stage and is operable." Hadlee is regarded as one of the greatest fast bowlers of all time, and was the first to take 400 Test wickets. By the time he retired in 1990, he had played 86 Tests and taken 431 wickets at 22.29. He was also a hard-hitting batsman with a Test career total of 3,124 runs, including two centuries and 15 half-centuries, at an average of 27.16.

News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
India's assistant coach Sanjay Bangar today came to the defence of the under-fire Mahendra Singh Dhoni, saying losing wickets at regular intervals did not allow the veteran campaigner to play freely in the second ODI at Lord's. Former skipper Dhoni took a lot of flak after uncharacteristic slow innings at Lord's, where he was even jeered while scoring 37 off 59 balls. After skipper Virat Kohli and leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, Bangar backed Dhoni. "With the combination, we are playing, we do not have the depth at numbers 8, 9 or 10 (the lower order), and when you lose couple of wickets, it becomes really difficult to bat with that sort of freedom. Due credit to the England bowlers, they didn't allow us to score any boundaries in that period and that was the reason the run rate kept climbing up," Bangar said. The third and final series-deciding ODI of this short series will be played at Headingley tomorrow. "He was just hoping someone would bat with him and we were just hoping that he..

Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal, coach Chandika Hathurusinghe and manager Asanka Gurusinha were today suspended for the first four ODIs and two Test matches against South Africa for their role in ball-tampering during the tour of the West Indies earlier this year. The trio were handed the punishment after they pleaded guilty to "conduct contrary to the spirit of the game".  The independent Judicial Commissioner, The Hon Michael Beloff QC, handed the trio eight suspension points, which means they will miss the first four ODIs along with both the Tests against South Africa. The three were charged by the ICC Chief Executive David Richardson on June 19 and had pleaded guilty to breaching Level 3, Article 2.3.1, which relates to conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game during last month's St Lucia Test against the West Indies.

England Lions hammer India A by 254 runs in one-off unofficial Test

18 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
India A batsmen's vulnerability against the red ball in foreign conditions was exposed as England Lions handed the visitors a 254-run defeat in the one-off Unofficial Test on day four here today. India A, who were reeling at 11 for three at stumps on day three while chasing an improbable 421-run target, did not put up much of a fight even in the second innings, folding up for 167 in 44 overs. They had struggled to 197 all out in 66.5 overs in the first essay after Lions made 423. The sole silver lining for India A was that Ajinkya Rahane and rookie Risabh Pant got to spend some valuable time in the middle ahead of the five-Test series against England, beginning in Birmingham on August 1. Pant, who has earned his maiden Test call-up, struck a second successive half-century century to give the Indian team management a selection headache ahead of the first match. India have picked two specialist wicket-keepers in the 18-man squad, including Pant and Dinesh Karthik, who is more likely to..
                 

Wriddhiman Saha to undergo shoulder surgery, rehab plan under scanner

20 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Believed to be a minor thumb injury till now, Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha is actually nursing a career-threatening shoulder problem caused by a "bungled" rehabilitation programme at the National Cricket Academy, a top BCCI official has claimed. It is learnt that Saha will have to undergo a surgery in the UK next month and that might rule him out of the tour of Australia later this year. "Wriddhiman's rehabilitation has been a complete goof up. The NCA physio has bungled it big time. Now only a surgery can put him back on track. Once he is done with surgery, he will not touch the bat for at least two months and then rehab will start," a senior BCCI official told PTI today. Saha has been out of action, citing a thumb injury sustained during this year's IPL, but it has now come to light that the problem is much bigger than what was initially assessed. He was not picked for the upcoming Test series against England but the Board did not reveal the full extent of his fitn..

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
India lost the ODI series much to the chagrin of their fans, who even booed them at Lord's, a rarity in this part for them. It was undoubtedly a great setback for the team in their preparation for the next year's World Cup, but a couple of positives came out of the defeat. One, it is a wake-up call at the right time for the team ahead of the World Cup next year, and two, it has given the team think-tank and the selectors enough time to ring in changes and prepare the team for that event. "That's what every side is looking for... they are looking for the best balance they can have possibly. All these sort of series and these sort of losses will tell us exactly what we need to work on and the things we need to rectify come World Cup time," skipper Virat Kohli said. "We've got 15-16 games (up to the World Cup) to get the balance of the side strong," he added. He gave indication that the team could see some changes when they next play in an ODI, the Asia Cup in the UAE in September...

Indian blind team suffers first bilateral series defeat in six years

News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
India's blind cricket world champion side suffered its first bilateral series loss in six years, losing 1-2 to Sri Lanka in Colombo recently. The Indians, led by Ajay Reddy, lost the first match on Sunday by two-wickets and the second on Monday by seven wickets. Yesterday, the visitors won the third encounter by 66 runs. "Bahut bura lag raha hai series haarke [I am feeling really bad after losing this series]," Reddy told mid-day over the phone from the Emerald isle yesterday. Reddy, who led the team to the World Cup triumph beating Pakistan in the final in UAE earlier this year, said the team has a slew of new young players, who probably failed to handle the pressure of international cricket. "Though seven or eight of our players are experienced enough, the rest are newcomers and they failed to cope with the pressure. After our first two defeats, I sat with them and shared my own story.
