Bhuvneshwar Kumar – a moment of calmness amidst the Kohli storm

When Rohit Sharma tossed the ball to Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the last over of the 3rd T20I against South Africa, the match was hanging in the balance. It shouldn’t have been but a certain Christiaan Jonker decided to go bonkers at the Indian bowling. Shardul Thakur looked flummoxed. Jasprit Bumrah, uneasy. Bhuvi walked to his...

Sir Ravindra Jadeja’s Excalibur: It cuts. It cuts deep

November 5, 2009 brings back bittersweet memories for every Indian cricket fan. In a cliff-hanger against the mighty Australians, Sachin Tendulkar produced a modern age classic. Chasing 351 runs to win, Tendulkar scripted an epic knock of 175. But India fell short. India fell heartbreakingly short. India lost the game by mere three runs. The superhero's...

MS Dhoni and his race to the finish

As Jaspreet Bumrah walked away after the 19th over, Virat Kohli ran up to Hardik Pandya. Kohli left after a couple of pats on his back. Suresh Raina arrived. After a brief neck massage, Ashish Nehra was in his ears. By the time Pandya reached MS Dhoni, everyone had a twitchy bum. They knew what... Continue Reading →


World Cup 2015: Time to Bleed Blue…Again

Defending Champions -- sounds like a joke. Has any defending champion ever entered the World Cup as the least favourites to retain the trophy? It's depressing to watch the current Indian cricket team play. They are in shambles right now and going into the World Cup, this is the worst preparation ever. Forget winning, India...

MS Dhoni – The stain on India’s white flannels

I like MS Dhoni. I love MS Dhoni. I love him as a Test batsman, a Test wicket keeper and yes, even as a Test captain. I loved the way he went about his job. Quaint, elegant and exuding a lot of class. The numbers didn’t add up, fair enough. They never do most times.... Continue Reading →


Indian cricket : Time to reboot the ‘process’!

When Rahul Dravid was appointed as the batting consultant before the Test series in England, every Indian fan, including yours truly, was overjoyed. Suddenly, the atmosphere was electrifying and you got a feeling that BCCI has finally played a blinder in hiring a 'cool' customer. And after 28 years, the victory at Lord's was sweetly...

The Manchester Mess – Blame it on MS!

Abject - Harsha Bhogle started his post match show with that word describing whatever happened in the last session of Day 3 at Manchester. How do you describe that batting display from India? You don't. After watching that parade, you switch off the television, log off twitter, disconnect from the internet and curl into bed trying... Continue Reading →


England v India: Lord’s, MS Dhoni and a bunch of trolls

What exactly happened at Lord’s yesterday? Even the best of script writers would struggle to match up to what transpired at Lord’s in that hour after lunch. Take a step back and your mind off that hour. The Lord’s Test match has been weird. A green pitch turned into a dust bowl in a matter of four days, Murali Vijay scripted... Continue Reading →


Cook v Dhoni – Who will ace The BIG Test?

"We got quite close and would love to have got us there, it is just gutting..." - Not often do you see a seasoned cricketer like James Anderson break down after a Test match. He has always been a tough character and perhaps one of the few English cricketers who deserves a bit more praise than... Continue Reading →
