Indian bowlers TrouBles NewZeAland Top order-Live match

The indian seemers did a pretty good job in the morning session by using the moisture in the wicket to quickly grab newzeland top order wickets.Ishant sharma was the pick of the bowler taking 3 wickets with his beautiful bowling.the newzelanders were reduced to 61 for 6 before the lunch break afteron it was Nz captain and jesse ryders show putting up a 100+ partnership between them.There seem to be a litle shift to the game as the Nz are taking the score ticking towards the 200 mark.There are still a good batting left in the Newzeland team.

RBS series

RBS cup

Kevin Pietersen’s unquestionable batting talent and confidence is reflected in an expansive spread of shots. Along similar lines, M.S. Dhoni’s self assurance has lent itself to his growth as a batsman.

As batsmen, Pietersen and Dhoni embody the ideal modern day cricketer — fearless, deceptively reliable and with a healthy love for the game.

As one would expect of batsmen with their methods, the subject of their captaincy was met with initial scepticism all around. Sourav Ganguly defiantly altered the age-old perception of captaincy, and Dhoni looks to carry the baton.

Men like Graeme Smith and potentially Pietersen and Dhoni can set the template for captaincy in modern-day Test cricket; methods that might end up preserving the game’s classic format. The chance is upon them to drown voices of reproach that greet every cricketing innovation.

The two will captain their respective sides in a complete series for the first time on Thursday, in the first India-England Test at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium. Pietersen, after captaining England to a win in his first Test against South Africa, saw the momentum built with four one-day wins reversed by a 0-5 loss in the ODI series against India.

The chance for redemption wasn’t gift-wrapped in practice games. Pietersen would have least bargained for last week’s events, coming as it did after the one-day thrashing. But the captain’s batting methods are a fair reflection of his approach to the game. Pietersen bats with compelled improvisation, where simplicity is ignored. It remains to be seen whether his captaincy will rise out of trying circumstances as his batting so often does.

“I’m used to tough circumstances. From where I come from, I’ve seen a lot of difficult times before playing for England (after moving out of South Africa). It’s been tough throughout my career. But I like tough situations, since it’s a lot more rewarding when we succeed.”

Pontings praise for pace spearhead Ishant

75356861TS016_England_Lions

Ponting in his Captains diary has written his team could have won the crucial third test at perth but for an awesome spell by Indian pacer Ishant Sharma.The young lad playing his fourth test,had bowled an awesome spell to me:seven overs when he was fast,aggressive and relentless,where I never felt as if I was truly ‘in’.
