Getting out for a duck is one of the biggest nightmares for a batsman, be it an opener or a number 11. It may be difficult for a player to cast sight on a scoreboard which shows a big ‘0’ against his name as it shows that he had no contribution to the team total. However, scoring a duck in a solitary innings is far better than getting consecutive ducks in two or more innings. While lower order batsmen are more prone to regi
India may have made a flying start in the T20 format when they won the inaugural edition of the World Twenty20, but post that their performance in T20 cricket has been quite a mixed bag.

The names of few great cricketers have proudly been displayed on the Lord’s honours board, by virtue of either scoring a brilliant century or for their wicket taking spree.

Undoubtedly, like many other sports, cricket is also a game of numbers and records. There are many well-known records that most of us have heard of. Many of us know about Bradman’s 99.94 Test average or Sachin’s 100 international centuries. Every cricket fan has an idea about Murali’s international wicket haul or Sir Jack Hobbs first class records. But there are few records that we may have not observed of certain players or te
Ganguly scored a century on his Test debut International cricket is a strange monster. Some started with greatness all over them and never went too far. Some looked mediocre but went on to become greats. Very few looked great, started great and ended great. Much of it is because of the rigors of competitive international cricket which is like the ocean that you can never gauge until you dive into it. Some learn and adapt while some perish.

But the advent of technology has ensured that we can always re-live those wonderful memories of the past with ease.
Rohit Sharma celebrates his century South Africa defeated India by 5 runs in the first one-day international of the 5-match series at the Green Park in Kanpur. Rohit Sharma’s heroic 150 runs went in vain as India failed to successfully chase the 304 runs target set by the Proteas. Rohit almost led India to victory, but the double strike by Tahir changed the equation and South Africa didn’t fail to capitalize on that. Di
Dhoni's limited overs form has waned recently Former India medium-fast bowler Ajit Agarkar believed that it was high time the Indian national team selectors observed limited overs captain MS Dhoni's performances more closely and come to a decision on his role in the team.
