5 Indian players who got a lot of backing when they were going through a bad phase

'There is a tide in the affairs of men' is one of the most famous sayings of Brutus from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.

Wahab Riaz in action during the World Cup 2015 quarter final against Australia Extreme. Inconsistent. Mercurial. These are the words people use to describe Pakistani Cricket. Fantastic one day, horrendous the next. Better than the best on their day. Worse than the worst when it’s not. They lose when nobody expects them to. They win when nobody expects them to. Therein lies the beauty of Pakistani Cricket. In its capacity to s

The curious case of India's number 4

  Rahane hasn’t been able to change gears at number 4 after getting very slow starts The 4th number has always been a spot of bother for any captain. It is that position where a batsman is expected not only to get runs for the team but more importantly get them at a quicker rate to provide the lower order the thrust to go into the final 10 overs at a fierce rate.  It is no coincidence that AB de Villiers, Andrew Symon

The road ahead for Yuvraj Singh, one of India's best loved

Yuvraj Singh The 33,000 crowd present at Wankhede were stunned by what they were witnessing. It was the fifth occasion in less than five minutes that Yuvraj Singh had slashed his bat hard at a Hardik Pandya delivery and connected with nothing but thin air. He had enough of this and was clearly embarrassed. To think of it, they were all deliveries that the Yuvraj of old would have dispatched over the deep mid-wicket fence or sent scurryi

10 cricketers who should be released by their IPL teams

The recently concluded IPL-2015  encountered a rather one-sided final with giant killers, ‘Mumbai Indians’, after a sluggish start, going on to crush two-time champions and tournament favourites, ‘Chennai Super Kings’.
