    Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajasthan Royals Match 4 IPL 2014 Preview

    Category: IPL,IPL 2013 News,IPL Royal Challengers Bangalore,IPL Sunrisers Hyderabad

    Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) open their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 campaign with a clash at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi on April 17. The two teams had qualified to the play-offs last season and have done well to keep their main core intact going into this season. Both sides would want to better their performances of the previous season and they do have the firepower to threaten the best in the business.

    Going by the first game at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium played between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders, chasing wouldn’t be easy and any team winning the toss would want to bat first. There is a bit of grass on the wicket and the batsmen may be a bit wary of that.

    Date : 18 April 2014 Time : 14:30 GMT – 20:00 IST
    Venue : Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhab4

    Rajasthan have retained their best and this forms the crux of their batting. Ajinkya Rahane, Shane Watson, Stuart Binny and Sanju Samson would be the main batsmen. Rahane, Watson and Samson would form three out of the top four. It looks like Unmukt Chand could open the batting with Rahane for this season. Lower down the order, they would have James Faulkner who has shown his abilities as a batsman off late.

    Chennai Super Kings are regulars in the end of the season playoffs in this competition but they have lost their leading run scorer from last season in Michael Hussey and his opening partner Murali Vijay has also gone for the Super Kings will be looking for a new opening pair. Dwayne Smith has come in from Mumbai and is set to open the batting. Chennai look to lack a bit of depth in their seam bowling department.

    Date : 18 April 2014 Time : 10:30 GMT – 02:30 Local – 16:00 IST
    Venue : Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

    Kings XI Punjab have undergone some big changes in the close season. Regulars in Mohali like David Hussey and Adam Gilchrist are no more but there is still an Australian feel to their side with Mitchell Johnson, George Bailey, Shaun Marsh and Glenn Maxwell among their overseas players. Virender Sehwag has been prized away from Delhi to open the batting while the likes of Parvinder Awana and Mandeep Singh will bolster the bowling options.

    Bangalore won by 8 Wkts against Delhi Daredevils, 2nd Match, IPL 2014

    RCB 146/2 (16.4 Ovs) | Delhi Daredevils Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Live Score, 2nd T20

    A thumping victory by Bangalore to kick-start their campaign. Second straight one-sided match of the tournament though. Tomorrow is a double header and hopefully we will get to see even contests. For now, cheers and bye..

    Chahal: ‘This was my 2nd Indian T20 league match, I have played one for Mumbai before. I was confident, I knew the ball would turn. Murali sir was sitting on the sidelines, Kohli supported me a lot during my spell.’

    Yuzvendra Chahal is the MoM

    Kohli: ‘We were just getting used to the pace of the wicket, hopefully, we will do well in the next few matches. It was easily a 170+ track, the bowlers did very well to keep them down to 145. Chahal was extremely good. It was sad how Yuvraj was targetted after the finals, he has won us 2 World Cups. I just told him to bat the way he wants to, it is a joy to watch him bat in this form.’

    Karthik: ‘We did not bat well, especially at the top. It was a great partnership from JP and Ross. The fielding was also ordinary. Sometimes, you don’t know who to bowl at what stage. It is just the first game, we have to come back hard in the next game. Duminy hit some lusty blows at the end which was good for us.’

    A convincing victory for Bangalore and that too without Chris Gayle. They lost Maddinson early, but the launch pad was provided by Parthiv Patel. He made sure that the run-rate did not dip at any stage of the chase. Kohli was strangely off-colour today, but he could take his time to settle down. He was dropped twice on 23 and 24, and made sure that Dehi pay. On the other hand, the much maligned Yuvraj Singh started shakily, grew in confidence as his innings progressed before finishing it off in style. For Delhi, the bowling barring Mohammad Shami was ordinary and the fielding and catching was shoddy.

    Time is right for the return of the Pakistan players at the IPL – Wasim Akram

    Category: Cricket News,IPL,IPL 2013 News

    Abu Dhabi: Keeping Pakistan players away from Indian Premier League is a huge blow for cricket-lovers, legendary former Pakistan fast bowler Wasim Akram insists.

    Pakistani players have been barred from participating in the IPL since 2008 after the Mumbai terror attacks.

    Yet Akram feels the time is right for them to be reinstated, for the benefit of subcontinental sports fans.

    “Whenever India and Pakistan players have played either against each other or together, they have attracted lot of crowds and you get plenty of support, especially in this part of the world. I hope in near future Pakistani players will be able to participate because we have great talent,” said Akram, who is the Wasin Akram IPLbowling coach for Kolkata Knight Riders.

    Akram went on to highlight what Pakistani players would bring to the Twenty20 league.

    “Imagine Saeed Ajmal playing. It would have been perfect in these conditions. Umar Akmal, Umar Gul, Shahid Afridi playing would have been huge. This was their home ground, but let’s see it’s a decision of the cricket boards of both countries has to take. Mixing sports and politics was going to do no good,” he said.

    Akram went on to praise the facilities at the Shaikh Zayed Cricket Stadium.

    IPL Scandal: Srinivasan seeks return as BCCI chief, SC to hear case today

    Category: Cricket News,IPL,IPL 2013 News

    A Supreme Court hearing on the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing and betting scandal will once again take centre stage on Wednesday and looks set to overshadow the opening match of seventh season of IPL between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders in Abu Dhabi later in the day.

    The apex court, through an interim order on March 28, has already removed N Srinivasan as BCCI chief. On the basis of a probe report submitted by former justice Mukul Mudgal and his team on February 10, a two-judge bench suspended Srinivasan for a fair probe into the IPL scandal. Srinivasan’s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan has been charged with betting and sharing team information during his stint as the Team Principal of India Cements-owned Chennai Super Kings.

    Delhi Daredevils vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Match 2 IPL 2014 Preview

    Category: IPL,IPL Delhi DareDevils,IPL Royal Challengers Bangalore

    Sharjah, Apr 16: A new-look Delhi Daredevils will launch their Indian Premier League campaign against Royal Challengers Bangalore here tomorrow without the services of their star batsman and captain Kevin Pietersen, who has been ruled out because of injury.

    It will be a big setback for Delhi as Pietersen will be forced to sit out of the lung-opener because of a finger injury which is yet to heal completely.

    He is also a doubtful starter for the second game as well. Pietersen, who was bought by Daredevils for USD 1.5 million (Rs 9 crore), had sustained an injury on his right hand little finger during fielding drills with Surrey at the Oval last month. In Pietersen’s absence, Dinesh Karthik may lead the team against RCB who have a star-studded line-up and will be keen to start their campaign on a high.

    RCB had won both their matches against DD in 2013. After a miserable 2013 – the Mahela Jayawardene-led DD finished last – Daredevils surely would want to turn their fortunes under new coach Gary Kirsten and the talented Pietersen.

    England’s all-time leading run-scorer across all formats, Pietersen, 33, will now be available for a full IPL season for the first time following the end of his international career. With the hard-working wicketkeeper-batsman Karthik and South Africa’s Jean-Paul Duminy as value additions in the new squad, Delhi are looking prepared and raring to go.
