    Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, 27th Match , IPL 7 : Preview

    Category: IPL,IPL 2014 News,IPL Mumbai Indians,IPL Royal Challengers Bangalore

    Back to winning ways, defending champions Mumbai Indians would look to exploit home advantage once again to carry forward their new-found momentum but it won’t easy as they face a formidable Royal Challengers Bangalore in an Indian Premier League match.

    Mumbai Indians: MI witnessed a terrible outing in the UAE leg of the tournament as they returned winless. But back in the familiar territory, the Rohit Sharma-led side snapped their dismal five-match losing streak with a five-wicket win over table toppers Kings XI Punjab on Saturday.

    The stadium was a mini fortress for MI which could not be breached in eight attempts last year and the title holders certainly enjoyed the home advantage against the Punjab franchise when they secured their first win after five losses, in the process snapping KXIP’s five-match winning streak.

    It has been Mumbai’s batting, more than their bowling, which had caused their slump in the tournament, but they would be encouraged by the collective batting performance in the last game. MI is still trying to figure a solid pair at the top to give them a good start. They have tried a few combinations with skipper Rohit Sharma, Aditya Tare, Michael Hussey, Ben Dunk and C M Gautam, but none has yielded the desired result. The middle-order that boasts of New Zealand’s Corey Anderson and explosive West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard has looked strong in the last few games. Anderson, who holds the record for the fastest century in ODIs, found his touch against KXIP and was adjudged man-of-the-match for his 25-ball 35. Pollard too has been in good form in the last two games with his blistering knock of 48-ball 78 against Sunrisers Hyderabad and an unbeaten breezy 12-ball 28 against KXIP.

    Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders IPL 2014 match 21 preview

    Category: IPL,IPL 2014 News,IPL Chennai Super Kings,IPL Kolkata Knight Riders

    The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 moves back to India with the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) taking on the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Ranchi. This is Kolkata’s home but, only technically. But, if you ask the fans, they would be rooting for the other side for their most famous citizen is leading the Chennai Super Kings. MS Dhoni would be the biggest talk of the town when this game gets underway and when compared to Kolkata, Chennai do have more experience here as they played a few games of the Champions League T20 2013.

    Date : 2 May

    Time: 20:00 IST | 14:30 GMT

    With the matches coming back to India, it remains to be seen how much it affects the teams. At least for now, one would expect them to line-up their best performers and avoid making too many changes. Also, spin should be a bigger factor here in India.

    Chennai have a settled unit after they bounced back following the defeat in the first game. In Dwayne Smith and Brendon McCullum, they have an attacking opening pair that can tear any opposition apart. Also, there is the strong middle in Suresh Raina, Faf du Plessis, Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja in the mix. Smith in particular is in good form and has helped set-up games for Chennai.

    In these conditions, Ravichandran Ashwin and Jadeja may be able to do a much better job as wickets would be slower and they would feel more at home. And, Ben Hilfenhaus, Ishwar Pandey and Mohit Sharma would continue to hone the pace bowling duties.

    Kolkata have questions over their batting, which has big names, but hasn’t clicked. Gautam Gambhir finally got a few runs and needs to convert them into big knocks. At the same time, they need Robin Uthappa to click. Suryakumar Yadav has been a revelation this year and could be persisted with on a higher batting slot. Jacques Kallis and Manish Pandey started the tournament well but haven’t maintained their form.

    Mumbai Indians lift IPL 2013 title at Eden Gardens

    Category: IPL,IPL 2014 News,IPL Chennai Super Kings,IPL Match Results,IPL Mumbai Indians

    Kolkata, May 27: Mumbai Indians lifted the Indian Premier League title for the first time with a 23-run victory over a hapless Chennai Super Kings in the final, played in the shadow of the raging spot fixing scam amid reports that some more players could be arrested after the Eden Gardens game Sunday night (May 26).

    Mumbai Indians IPL 2013 Winners

    The Mumbai Indians successfully defended a modest 148/9, to hold an error-prone Chennai batsmen to 125/9 and extract sweet revenge for their 22-run defeat to the same rivals in a summit clash three years back.

    For Chennai, skipper MS Dhoni ploughed a lonely furrow (63 not out; 45 b 3×4 5×6), as he joined in the middle with half the side gone and only 36 on the board into the seventh over.

    Dhoni began by playing cautiously, but hit three sixes in an attempt to turn the game, but in the end that was not enough.

    The one-sided game, played before packed galleries at the iconic venue, saw the Chennai Super Kings batsmen mostly go out to poor shots, though opener Mike Hussey was unlucky to be at the wrong end of a beautiful yorker length delivery from Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga that swung back into the Australian.

    Once Hussey got out, the floodgates were opened, and Malinga was on a hat-trick by claiming new man Suresh Raina with the next ball.

    The Kings’ woes continued, as S. Badrinath needlessly edged an offering wide outside the off stump from Mitchell Johnson. Inside two overs, Chennai were 3/3.

    Opener Murali Vijay, seeing the procession from the other end, tried to rectify the damage in the company of Dwayne Bravo, but the Trinidadian departed after picking up some boundaries with lofted strokes.

    Ravindra Jadeja fell to another soft dismissal without bothering the scorer, reducing Chennai to 36/5 in the seventh over.

    Vijay (18), who earlier got a “life” when he was dropped on 14, went back in the very next over, worsening Chennai’s position.

    Earlier, backed by a spirited bowling and electric fielding, Chennai Super Kings restricted Mumbai Indians to a gettable total.

    However, thanks to a quickfire unbeaten 60 from Kieron Pollard (32b 7×4 3×6), Mumbai recovered from a disastrous start to reach a position of respectability after opting to bat first.

    Apart from Pollard’s blitzkrieg, only Ambati Rayudu (37) and Dinesh Karthick (21) made useful contributions. For Chennai, Dwayne Bravo (4/44) was the most successful bowler followed by Albie Morkel (2/12).

    The big match did not have exactly the sort of build up that one would have expected it to have.

    The raging spot fixing scam seemed to have pushed into the background the on-field happenings as the scandal snared cricketers, an administrator and a small time Bollywood personality.

    What is worse, as the game was on, there came reports that a Delhi police team was in the city and three to four IPL players were likely to be arrested after the final match.

    IPL 2013 Final Highlights: Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians in Kolkata

    Category: Cricket News,IPL,IPL 2014 News,IPL Chennai Super Kings,IPL Highlights,IPL Match Results,IPL Mumbai Indians

    Kolkata, May 26: It was a night to remember for Mumbai Indians at the Eden Gardens on Sunday. MI were crowned the IPL 2013 champions after defeating two-time winners Chennai Super Kings by 23 runs in the final.

    Chasing a target of 149, CSK were off to a disastrous start losing two wicket in as many balls in Lasith Malinga’s opening over. Poor shot selection from CSK batsmen led to their downfall.

    With the innings in tatters at 58/8 in 11.3 overs, the match was virtually over. Captain MS Dhoni (63 not out) fought a losing battle in the end but his big hits were not enough. CSK were kept to 125/9 in 20 overs.

    Earlier, Kieron Pollard’s 32-ball 60 not out helped Mumbai Indians to 148/9 in 20 overs

    It was a shaky start for MI but Pollard’s hurricane innings towards the end ensured they had a good score.

    Dwayne Bravo picked up the Purple Cap with four wickets tonight. He finished the tournament with 32 wickets, most by a bowler in a single IPL. Michael Hussey was the Orange Cap winner with 733 runs.

    12-year-old fan questions Sreesanth in court

    Category: Cricket News,IPL,IPL 2014 News

    New Delhi, May 26: “Dear Tushaar, Please do pray for me!” That was the short message hastily scribbled by S Sreesanth for a 12-year-old fan who had come to the court on Sunday in the hope of meeting the Indian pacer accused in IPL spot-fixing scandal. Tushar kept standing behind Sreesanth during the over two-hour-long court proceedings and finally managed to exchange a few words with him, besides getting his autograph.

    At the beginning of proceedings in the crowded courtroom, he repeatedly tried to catch a glimpse of the cricketer and managed to attract Sreesanth’s attention. “What’s up?” said Sreesanth as he turned around a little and shook hands with Tushar, an 8th grader of Air Force Bal Bharti School.

    “Kya Yaar, spot fixing kyu kiya (Why did you do spot-fixing)?”, was the question that followed from this young fan in a hush-hush voice as the prosecutor and the defence counsel argued their case before the Metropolitan Magistrate. To this, Sreesanth whispered, “Yaar, maine nahi kiya (I did not do it).”

    However, that was not enough for the kid, who kept asking questions and trying to understand from the mediapersons covering court proceedings as to how the advocates will defend Sreesanth. When the proceedings were about to get over, Tushar borrowed a piece of paper from one of the scribes and asked Sreesanth for an autograph.

    The cricketer, however, said he was not allowed to give autographs as he is in police custody. On Tushar’s insistence, Sreesanth, once outside the court, took the piece of paper from him and wrote on it – “Dear Tushaar.. Please do pray for me!”, with his signature.
