4-0 White wash completed.


India beat Australia in India with 4-0. Sounds really cool.

But it didn’t happen in one night, there is much strong effort , practice from the players and came back really well after the disappointing series against England.

Fourth and final test has gone crazy and finished in just 3 days. Sir Ravindra jadeja strike australians hard and achieved Man of the match. He bowled really well along with Ashwin and Ojha.

Pujara, the young man stayed there till the end and hit 82 runs in the second innings and helped for cool victory. As usual Dhoni hit the winning shot. ūüôā Continue reading

India lead the series with 3-0, ready to Sweep.


What a contest between India and Australia at Mohali. It’s exciting all the way.

First day was wasted due to rain and no one would have expected that this would happen.

Second day, Australians who won the toss elected to bat first. And started really well with 139 run partnership for the first wicket. Then quickly they collapsed to 7-251. And smith and starc playing at the crease. 273/7 Day2 stumps.

On third day, it was Smith and Starc, who looked like to score centuries but unfortunately they out at 92 and 99 respectively. And the debut hero Shikar Dhawan scored fastest century in just 85 balls, and Vijay who started slowly and together made 283 run partnership on day 3. 283/0

On Fourth day, Dhawan lost wicket very quickly, and Pujara gone for a wrong decision. And later Sachin out for 37 runs. And the new ball turn the things towards Australia, Starc suddenly bowled in-swingers and took wickets of Vijay and Dhoni. And Siddle completed next formalities and 499 allout with 91 run lead.

Australia started 2nd innings and this time , Bhuvaneswar striked superb taking first 3 wickets and Day4 stumps at 75/3.

And the final day, was with lot of twists. After Hughes wicket, No one stand firmly and wickets were going down. and again Mitchelle Starc and Doherty who played almost 186 balls and for Indian bowlers it seemed to be hard to take wicket of them. And Sir Ravindra Jadeja (:P ) took wicket of Starc. And Australians set the target 133.

India definitely look for win, and started with the same idea. And Vijay ,Pujara stared well and fall at 42-1,70-2. Kohli and Master supposed to finish off the things, but Kohli down at 103-3 and Tendulkar run out at 116-4. And it was Dhoni who inspires always when Sachin out, finished match with 3 consecutive fours.

It was Dhoni who finish the things very quickly provided Sachin should be out.

I would like to thank god and my family,¬†It’s s dream come true. When I entered, I was nervous for three-four balls. Once I got into my rhythm, I played my natural game. Vijay did a great job too. I wanted to stay at the crease as long as possible, I didn’t want to throw my wicket away. I will cherish this for the rest of my life. The finger is going to take a bit of a time. It’s all part and parcel of the game. I fell on my knuckles when I dived.”-¬†says¬†Shikhar Dhawan, MoM.

“We don’t think about revenge in sport, we have exploited the conditions well. Even the fast bowlers have done well despite conditions helping spinners. Jadeja’s inclusion has helped. It meant we were playing with five specialist bowlers. We bowl 12-125 overs on an average to get teams out, so we get tired. It was one of the best batting exhibitions when it comes to batting in pairs, Vijay and Dhawan. The pitch got better to bat on a bit. There were foot marks, but I don’t think it was alarming. Bhuvnesh’s wickets in the second innings helped us win the game. We may try a few things in Delhi but it is important to win all Tests.”-¬†says¬†MS Dhoni.

“I think we showed character, but we have to give credit to India. The start that Dhawan and Vijay gave was outstanding, and all credit to them. The way we came out and fought with the ball today is amazing, but once again the Indian batters showed us that once you get in, you have to score big. We are disappointed, but hopefully we can finish on a high in Delhi. Over the past two years, we have been consistent at home, but not away from home. We continue to learn, there are some positives but there are certainly areas we can get better. I told the boys this morning that we can win the match. We always look for ways to win.”-¬†” says¬†Michael Clarke.

Final test starts from this Friday. 22nd March, 2013.

won by Innings and 135 runs..sounds great!!


¬† ¬† ¬† India’s innings-and-135-run victory over a hapless Australia on the fourth morning of the Hyderabad Test was not an ordinary win. It was their second-biggest victory over their opponents, but more significantly it made MS Dhoni the most successful Indian captain in the history of Test cricket. Having drawn level with Sourav Ganguly in the first Test in Chennai, Dhoni made the record his own on Tuesday when India’s spin duo of R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja put the Australians in a spin.india_team_300
Against the backdrop of poor form and captaincy, as well as India’s embarrassing 2-1 defeat to England at home last year, Dhoni came into this series as a marked man. In Chennai, he answered his critics with a career-best 224 that almost single-handedly scripted victory, and now in Hyderabad he has overseen a huge win that has put India ahead with an unassailable 2-0 series lead. His win-loss ratio is also the best for those to have led India in more than four Test matches.
Dhoni said in the presentation,
It was important to get off to a good start,¬†Bhuvneshwar provided that. You don’tsee fast bowlers getting too many in these conditions. We often talk about long partnerships. If you get 40-50, you have to score big. That’s what Pujara and Vijay did. That resulted in a massive partnership, which gave us the freedom to accelerate yesterday. It was very important to not give their seamers wickets, and I think they saw that period off really well. After that they could dictate terms. Very good bowling performance. It was important to start today’s play really well, and Ishant gave us the important breakthrough. I think I have got a very good side. Yes we have gone through a period we haven’t won many games. Credit goes to the team and the support staff. And winning most matches as captain is a collective effort, and credit goes to each and everyone.”

Dhoni Double knock – India in a Strong Position


He is the person who plays unorthodox cricket all the time, but succeeded very few times. But today, the person who is the captain of Indian Cricket team came up with brilliant double century knock against Aussies. Kohli too batted well.

The first session started well, all are eager to see for Sachin’s Century, but Lyon damaged the hopes. And there comes the big man Mahendra Singh Dhoni, started firmly. His strike rate is almost nearer t0 100%. Meanwhile Kohli completed his 4th Test hundred and went to¬†pavilion after a bad shot. And there after Dhoni was in crease for long¬†period¬†while the other end tail enders were just coming and going to pavilion. Then Dhoni started hitting hardly and runs came up quickly.

150 passed.

And finally he got his first double ton, and there was no excitement for him to get that knock, perhaps he might be tired.!! ūüėČ

200 crossed.

And in the other end Bhuvneswar was defending very well, giving complete support for Dhoni to go for it. Hope Dhoni play for the first session and tomorrow and quickly get his triple ton ūüôā
