AB de Villiers proved for the umpteenth time that no one in the world can match his batting skills whatever be the game’s format. His first century at Kanpur’s first ODI won the game for his country while a ruthless third of the 5-match series at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium had its own tale. Other than […]

Valiant Zimbabwe Came Close But Lost the ODI Series to New Zealand in the End

 August 8, 2015   R K Gupta

, , ,

On many occasions, Zimbabwe’s chase of 274 mirrored their effort in the first ODI on August 02, 2015. They had a victory target of 304 but Craig Ervine muscled his way and successfully chased it to give the home side a 7-wicket victory. Batting first in the third and final ODI on Friday, New Zealand […]

, , , ,

If there was vengeance in cricket, it surfaced emphatically at the Harare Sports Club on August 4, 2015.

Ervine’s Massive Thrust Helps Zimbabwe Beat Fancied New Zealand in 1st ODI at Harare

 August 3, 2015   R K Gupta

, , ,

When a team piles up a 300-plus score in an ODI match, it acquires a winning edge in most cases. The side liked New Zealand, which had a thunderous show in the 2015 World Cup down under; did not see a threat at least from Zimbabwe even if they didn’t have the advantage of playing […]

India Lose Second T-20 Game Against Zimbabwe From a Position of Strength

 July 20, 2015   R K Gupta

, , , ,

To be chasing 146 for victory in a T20 game should normally be regarded as easy. Zimbabwe batted first and one man dominated their batting and India’s bowlers. Chamu Chibhabha’s nonchalance was the single biggest factor as he kept one end going while his colleagues fell at the other. The mercurial opener went on until […]

 July 15, 2015   R K Gupta

, , , , ,

Batting and bowling inconsistencies on either side made the last match of the ODI series between India and Zimbabwe an intriguing affair. First the Indian top order collapsed and by the 22nd over, the scoreboard read 82/4. Two new batsmen, whose choices were dictated by their IPL performance, enacted a rescue act with a fifth-wicket […]

 July 13, 2015   R K Gupta

The script in second ODI between India and Zimbabwe at Harare was nearly similar to the one in the first ODI. Elton Chigumbura won the toss and just as he had done in the first ODI, two days ago, asked India to bat first. India didn’t do anything spectacular but the 112-run first wicket stand […]

In a Thrilling Last-Ball Decision India Beat Zimbabwe in First ODI at Harare

 July 12, 2015   R K Gupta

, , , ,

With their high rating in ICC’s ODI rankings, India should have done much better than contriving to play in the hands of the Zimbabweans in the first of the 3-match ODI series. Elton Chigumbura won the toss and asked India to bat first. Of the 8 Indian batsmen, who came out to bat, 5 of […]
