NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India limited-overs specialist Suresh Raina is to captain the new Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise in Rajkot, the team announced on Tuesday, while confirming Australian Brad Hodge as the side's coach. Pune and Rajkot were unveiled as the new teams in the lucrative Twenty20 competition in December, replacing Chennai and Rajasthan, who were handed two-year suspensions for their involvement in an illegal betting scandal. "Suresh Raina is a remarkable player with an impeccable record in all formats of the game," franchise owner Keshav Bansal said in a statement, announcing the team would be called the Gujarat Lions. "His extensive experience combined with his great leadership skills will help us in putting together a winning strategy for the team." Having played ...

Women come to party with record chase

Women come to party with record chase

All, Cricket, Sports
Mithali Raj, Indian women’s cricket team captain, was a worried lady couple of days ago. She was fretting a bit about how her team would fare without much match practice, especially after their Sydney game was washed out. She needn’t have worried as India stunned World Cup winners Australia in the first T20 international game at Adelaide Oval by pulling off their highest ever chase in this format. Powered by Harmanpreet Kaur’s 31-ball 46, they chased down Australia’s 140 for 5 — India’s previous best chase was 128 for 7 against New Zealand last July — with eight balls to spare. Kaur, who is fondly known as Virender Sehwag of this women’s team, hit six fours and a six, and Veda Krishnamurthy, the No. 3 batter, chipped in with a 32-ball 35 to contribute to the victory.

Virat Kohli fastest to reach 25 one day international hundreds

Virat Kohli fastest to reach 25 one day international hundreds

All, Cricket, Sports
Virat Kohli slammed his 25th hundred in just his 170th one day international and 162nd innings, becoming the quickest to get there, breaking Sachin Tendulkar's record. The Master Blaster took 234 innings to reach the milestone. Kohli is now fourth on the list of batsmen with most hundreds in one day cricket. Sri Lankan batting legend Kumar Sangakkara retired with 25 hundreds from 404 ODIs. This was Kohli's second successive hundred after scores of 91 in Perth and 59 in Melbourne. The 27-year-old smashed 117 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday.  [the_ad id="3627"] Chasing an improbable 349, Kohli walked in after the in-form Rohit Sharma departed for a 25-ball 41. He got off the mark with a boundary when he punished a half-volley from James Faulkner and did not look back since.

Melbourne: Having lost two games in a row, India will aim to keep themselves alive in the ongoing five-match One Day International (ODI) series when they face Australia in the third game at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) here on Sunday. To be fair to the visitors, their batsmen did reasonably well, posting totals of 309 and 308 respectively in the first two matches after skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and decided to bat on both occassions. Rohit Sharma has been the star performer, scoring back to back centuries at the top of the batting order. The Mumbai lad scored an unbetaen 171 in the first match b

India vs South Africa:The difference of support

India vs South Africa:The difference of support

All, Cricket, Sports
Last night at the MA Chidambaram Stadium we witnessed two brilliant innings from two world class players. Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers put on an exhibition of grit, determination and fabulous strokeplay to enthrall the Chepauk crowd. As South Africa neared defeat, a TV poll asked which innings was the better one. To everyone's amazement, even the commentators’, 52 percent voted for De Villiers. That's how good his innings was. The problem for De Villiers though was that he fought a lone battle while Kohli had Ajinkya Rahane and Suresh Raina to back him up. That ended up being the difference between the two sides. India's biggest problem in this series has been losing wickets in clusters. In the second and third ODIs, India failed to stitch together even a single 100-run stand. S
