The Goa wedding was a star studded affair with the likes of Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma, Rohit Sharma, Sachin Tendulkar attending it.  


BCCI may cancel rescheduled Ranji matches

After the objections raised by the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association and the Mumbai Cricket Association the BCCI has been forced to review its decision to reschedule two matches which were called off on the second day. 

If reports are to be believed the committee could well go ahead and scrap this decision of rescheduling the matches. 

The members of the board discussed the letter which were filed by the TNCA and MCA and thus the BCCI has now decided to forward the suggestions to the senior technical committee. 

The senior tournament committee comprises BCCI vice-president Gautam Roy as chairman, and also has representatives from Haryana, Goa, Odisha, Baroda and Uttar Pradesh. Ajay Shirke, BCCI secretary will be the convenor. 


Good guy Jonty Rhodes saves the day 

Former South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes is as much of a hero off the field as he is on it. He took to Twitter to ask people to respect the ocean as he just helped to rescue 4 men from the Mahab's beach. Jonty, along with 3 other men, put their lives at risk to help the 4 stranded man, and it was a successful mission. He also took his time out to remind people of the ocean's power, stating that it can be deceptive. While it may look flat, it is always dangerous. With acts like this, there is no wonder why Jonty Rhodes is one of the most respected cricketers in the world.


Kane Williamson the key man as Kiwis look to go top
Australian skipper has praised his opposing captain Kane Williamson ahead of the 3-match Chappell-Hadlee series that got underway today. "They (New Zealand) have got a lot of quality players in their line up. A lot of the time they bat around Kane Williamson, he's sort of the glue in their middle-order," he said. Williamson has not had the best of years in ODIs, but that's also owing to the fact that the Kiwis have not played much cricket in the format. "I wouldn't say there's any vulnerabilities there. Kane's a quality player and he's capable of scoring big runs. He's certainly one that we'll need to get on top of if we want to have success in this series," the Aussie skipper added. There is further incentive for the Kiwis to do well as they can pip their rivals to the top of the ICC rankings if they win the series 3 - 0.
