  1. After a really long time, we got an opportunity to watch the Indian opener play his kind of game in the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League in the matchup between Dinesh Karthik's Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and his Delhi Capitals (DC) in a charge led by the youngster, Shreyas Iyer on Friday. Playing his best innings in the T20 format of the game, 'Gabbar' hit 11 fours and two sixes to build a career-best individual score of 97 runs in just 63 balls as he played a major role in Delhi Capitals' fourth victory of the season. With enough runs to make and enough deliveries left in hand, Dhawan found himself on the non-striker's end, with the thought of celebrating his maiden T20 century visible in his eyes clear as day, when his teammate and South African batsman Colin Ingram edged the ball for a four off the second delivery of the 19th over of KKR's bowling before managing a couple of singles in the following two deliveries. With only five runs needed, you'd imagine the Proteas hitter to make an effort to give the strike to the Indian southpaw. Alas, on the final ball of the 19th over, Ingram opened his bat and sent one flying over long on for a maximum, winning the game in great fashion while also becoming a party pooper for Dhawan's century dream. Evidently, Gabbar's fans did not take nicely to Ingram's heroics and let him hear it on social media: #KKRvsDC Colin Ingram: Sorry mate,Team comes First.. Dhawan: Yes of course..!! pic.twitter.com/ec7XcvW7ym — Jaimin Morbia (@jaimeme_morbia) April 12, 2019 Shikhar Dhawan fans waiting for Colin ingram pic.twitter.com/EwF4Fmzt0m — Shantanu kashyap (@Memeboishantanu) April 12, 2019 Shikhar dhawan waiting for Colin Ingram in dressing room @SDhawan25 #VIVOIPL #IPL2019 #KKRvsDC #KolkataKnightRiders #DelhiCapitals #Ingram #century pic.twitter.com/FlS5X0tav3 — Laxmikant (@Laxmika39545440) April 13, 2019 Kanipisthe narikaistha....

After winning four of their first seven games, Delhi Capitals are placed fourth on the league's points table and hope to get into the playoffs after having a disappointing season last year.
  2. It may come as a surprise to a lot of the Indian cricket fans that ever since the Twenty20 format of the game was introduced in 2005, none of the Indian wicket-keeping-captains were able to score a century in any of the List A leagues or tournaments. That was until the 20-year-old captain of the Jharkhand team decided to make history in a match against Jammu & Kashmir in the Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament. While J&K put up a below-average score of 168 runs, Kishan went on to score an impressive 100 in just 55 balls to successfully chase it down and win the match with ease. During his bombastic innings, the batsman sent the ball for eight boundaries and seven sixes. Well Played Ishan Kishan #SyedMushtaqAliTrophy pic.twitter.com/2flOJOdZxO — CricFit (@CricFit) February 22, 2019 In achieving this wonderful feat, Kishan registered his name amongst the greatest of athletes of the game in former Aussie skipper Adam Gilchrist and Pak keeper Kamran Akmal as he became only the fifth player in the world to score a ton as both the wicket-keeper and the captain of a squad. Kishan's impressive batting performance during the Syed Mushtaq Ali follows a rather unexpected century at the hands of India's second 'Wall' in Saurashtra's Cheteshwar Pujara who is known for his slow but steady way of playing the game, especially in the Test format of the game. Pujara's ton came in a surprisingly few number of balls (61) after his father had advised him move forwards or backwards across the crease to utilise the line better, a day before. Another youngster in Shreyas Iyer played a brilliant innings for Mumbai in a match against Sikkim, during which he broke India's sledging mascot Rishabh Pant's record for the highest individual score by an Indian batsmen in the T20, as he scored an extraordinary 147 in just 55 balls. Iyer scored 118 runs only in boundaries. Highest T20 scores by Indians 147 - Shreyas Iyer for Mumbai today 128* - Rishabh Pant for Delhi Daredevils 2018 127 - M Vijay for Chennai Super Kings 2010 126* - Suresh Raina for Uttar Pradesh 2018 125 - Unmukt Chand for Delhi 2013#SyedMushtaqAliTrophy — Mohandas Menon (@mohanstatsman) February 21, 2019 Taking into consideration how talented the younger lot of Indian cricketers is, it is safe to say that the Men in Blue are going to rule on an international level for a long time. Kishan's fans hopped on Twitter to express their amazement towards the batsman's innings: Ishan Kishan will be the main factor to Mumbai Indians' campaign this IPL season. Can be so destructive for us batting at 3. — Numan (@blacksuit_786) February 22, 2019 Like i said in the past, i predict Ishan Kishan to serve india in all formats for a long time. — Jai Jawan - Bharat Mata Ki Jai ® (@Bhavanisms) February 22, 2019 Like i said in the past, i predict Ishan Kishan to serve india in all formats for a long time. — Jai Jawan - Bharat Mata Ki Jai ® (@Bhavanisms) February 22, 2019 Ishan Kishan is the first wicket-keeper captain of ð®ð³ to score a ð¯ in T20 Cricket. #SyedMushtaqAliTrophy @ishankishan51 — Akhil Gupta ð (@Guptastats92) February 22, 2019 Fantastic ð¯ by ISHAN KISHAN VS JAMMU&KASHMIR AT (MUSTAK ALI T20 TOURNAMENT).

  3. With all eyes on the ICC World Cup in England & Wales, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have pretty much narrowed down the squad for the mega event, slated to begin this May. While the consistent performers will be seen carrying the baton for their side, a lot of other Indian cricketers seem to have missed out. Amongst the ones who missed out, young Shreyas Iyer, too, failed to make the cut. But, the 24-year-old has neither allowed it to affect his mindset, nor his performance on the field. In fact, if we were to go by his recent outing with the willow, Shreyas appears to be making a strong statement which is bound to garner the attention of Indian selectors. Shreyas Iyer was the no. 4 we were looking for but @BCCI didn't give him much chance as compared to Rahane, Manish, Rayudu otherwise he'd in WC squad. — Ovi (@Abhijit_19) February 21, 2019 Unfazed by the snub, Shreyas took the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy by storm after a blistering innings during Mumbai's opening match against Sikkim. The right-hander slammed a whirlwind 55-ball 147 (scoring 118 runs in boundaries). In the process, he surpassed Rishabh Pant to record the highest individual score by an Indian batsman in the history of T20 cricket. Coming in to bat, with Mumbai reeling at 22/2, Shreyas stabilised the innings for his side with a pivotal 213-run partnership for the third wicket with Suryakumar Yadav (63). During his marauding knock, the Mumbai batsman smashed 15 sixes and seven boundaries, including a 35-run over off Sikkim's medium-pacer Tashi Bhalla. Highest T20 scores by Indians 147 - Shreyas Iyer for Mumbai today 128* - Rishabh Pant for Delhi Daredevils 2018 127 - M Vijay for Chennai Super Kings 2010 126* - Suresh Raina for Uttar Pradesh 2018 125 - Unmukt Chand for Delhi 2013#SyedMushtaqAliTrophy — Mohandas Menon (@mohanstatsman) February 21, 2019 Incidentally, Shreyas' tally of 15 sixes also saw going past Murali Vijay (11) for most maximums in a T20 innings among Indian batsmen. He is now tied on the fourth spot on the overall list with none other than 'Universe Boss' Chris Gayle. Thanks to the right-handed batsman's sensational knock, Mumbai reached a formidable total of 258 runs in their quota of 20 overs. In reply, Sikkim failed to get going in their run-chase. Shardul Thakur and Shams Mulani bagged two wickets apiece to ensure Sikkim could only manage 104/7 in 20 overs, losing the match by 154 runs. Highest score by an Indian in T20 history â Most sixes by an Indian in a T20 innings â O Captain, Our Captain!#SyedMushtaqAliTrophy #ShreyasIyer#ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals pic.twitter.com/TCbNJ03lZm — Delhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) February 21, 2019 Sadly, despite the talent & good performance, Shreyas Iyer lost his place in Indian team. — Lionð®ð³ (@ShoorVeerKing) February 21, 2019 Wow looking forward for such performances in international level, once he gets the chance — anju rawat (@anjubharatrawat) February 21, 2019 Poor Shreyas iyer he has a competition with IPL bully Rayudu who doesn't even play domestic cricket. What a shame — Coach Ravi Shastri (@saffron_archer) February 21, 2019 Wow.. I mean in another country he would've been a established star batsman by now. Instead we have duds like Rayudu to contend till the WC. I hope for wholesome changes in batting order after WC. This team is too damn old — Romeo Rajat (@RomeoRajat2) February 21, 2019 Shreyas iyer is rare talent , he is much better than Rayudu , u r picking Rayudu just for his IPL performance where as iyer is scoring tons of runs in domestic cricket . — Coach Ravi Shastri (@saffron_archer) February 21, 2019
  4. If the Indian Premier League (IPL) is considered to be one of the most lucrative T20 tournaments across the world, then Australia's very own Big Bash League (BBL), too, continues to entice cricket fans with entertaining and exciting clashes over the years. From some breathtaking bowling spells to batting masterclass of marauding batsmen, the BBL has given cricket fans some of the greatest moments in the sport. Staying true to its nature, the eighth edition of the BBL is proving to be one of the best since the league's inception. There have been crazy catches in the stands and on the field. The individual batting performances have also come to the fore. And, thrilling contests continue to set the tone of the ongoing BBL season. More recently, another incident rose to the spotlight during the clash between Melbourne Renegades and Hobart Hurricanes. Australian fast bowler Riley Meredith became the talking point for reasons he wouldn't be able to forget for a while. The 22-year-old was looking to aid Hurricanes with a clinical bowling performance, but who would've thought the he would end up giving away 17 runs on a single delivery? Yep, you read that right. © Twitter/@BBL Riding on the heroics of skipper Matthew Wade (58), Hurricanes fancied their chances after posting a competitive total of 183 runs. In reply, Meredith was handed the responsibility of opening the attack as Renegades' openers came to the crease. But, what was arguably one of the worst overs bowled in T20 history, Meredith was seen conceding 23 runs in the first over of the innings. After conceding three runs off the first three deliveries, Meredith strayed off his line in epic fashion. The right-arm bowler overstepped on the fourth delivery, then bowled a wide that slipped past the wicket-keeper for a boundary, overstepped again and got whacked for a four, overstepped once again and got hammered for another four. The legal fourth delivery he eventually ended up bowling produced a single. 17 runs... FROM ONE BALL ð³ This Bucket Ball bonanza was the worst start to the innings the Hurricanes could imagine.@KFCAustralia | #BBL08 pic.twitter.com/FfS7svQXpm — KFC Big Bash League (@BBL) February 7, 2019 By the time, Meredith was finally done with his first over, his deliveries read: 0, 0, 1, 1nb, 5wd, 5nb, 5nb, 1, 4lb. The young Aussie paceman ended up conceding 23 runs in the first over of Renegades' innings - surely not the kind of start Hurricanes would've wanted. Thankfully, Meredith's horror over didn't have a major impact on Hurricanes' chances. With Jofra Archer, Qais Ahmad and D'Arcy Short bagging two wickets apiece, the hosts managed to restrict Renegades' chase to 167/8 in 20 overs, winning the contest by 16 runs. However, Meredith's error-ridden over became a major talking point as cricket fans across the globe expressed their views on social media.

  5. Indian Women's National Cricket T20I team captain, Harmanpreet Kaur was named the captain of the ICC World T20 Team of the year. Fellow Women in Blue, Smriti Mandhana and Poonam Yadav were also voted to be in the ICC World T20 and ODI squads. As an annual honorary ritual, the International Cricket Council (ICC) votes upon some of the best performers of the year, from all around the world, to form titular teams to acknowledge their outstanding achievements. Last year, making the cut were Indian ODI captain Mithali Raj (ODI), Ekta Bist (ODI and T20) and Harmanpreet Kaur (T20). This year, however, things have been a lot better for the Indian T20I skipper as Kaur has improved on an already impressive career, especially during the ICC Women's World T20 2018 when she led her team to the semifinals. "In that tournament, (Harmanpreet) Kaur scored 183 runs at a strike-rate of 160.5, while in the 25 matches in the calendar year, she accumulated 663 runs at a strike-rate of 126.2. Kaur is ranked third in the MRF Tyres ICC Women's Player Rankings for T20I Batters," read a statement issued by the ICC.

With a strike-rate of 130.67, the left-handed batswoman also scored 622 runs in 25 T20I matches in 2018. “When you get acknowledged for your performances through these awards, it motivates you to work harder and do well for your team,” Mandhana expressed to The Times of India. ICC Women's ODI Team of the Year (in batting order): Smriti Mandhana (India), Tammy Beaumont (England), Suzie Bates (New Zealand) (captain), Dane van Niekerk (South Africa), Sophie Devine (New Zealand), Alyssa Healy (Australia) (wicketkeeper), Marizanne Kapp (South Africa), Deandra Dottin (Windies), Sana Mir (Pakistan), Sophie Ecclestone (England), Poonam Yadav (India) ICC Women's T20I Team of the Year (in batting order): Smriti Mandhana (India), Alyssa Healy (Australia) (wicketkeeper), Suzie Bates (New Zealand), Harmanpreet Kaur (India) (captain), Natalie Sciver (England), Ellyse Perry (Australia), Ashleigh Gardner (Australia), Leigh Kasperek (New Zealand), Megan Schutt (Australia), Rumana Ahmed (Bangladesh), Poonam Yadav (India)
  6. For a country that boasts of a little over 4 million in population, Ireland undoubtedly packs a punch when it comes to sports. The small-but-proud nation has given the sporting world many stars including the likes of Conor McGregor in UFC, Rory McIlroy in golf and Roy Keane in football. While the nation has established itself in many sports, Ireland is also taking huge strides in international cricket. Their women's cricket team is currently slugging it out in the ICC World T20 in West Indies. But, things haven't been going the way Irish fans would have expected. Plying their trade in Group B, the Irish side was massacred by Australia in their opening game, where they suffered a massive nine-wicket loss. Eager to bounce back in the tournament, Ireland, then, ran into Pakistan in their second match. A three-wicket haul by Lucy O'Reilly restricted Javeria Khan-led team to 139 runs, allowing the Irish fans to dream on for a win. But a mediocre batting performance eventually spelt the doom for Ireland. © Twitter/@WorldT20 In a game that Ireland probably fancied winning, Pakistan held their nerve to notch up a 38-run win. Clearly, the Irish cricketers and their fans were left disappointed - something that was in full display during the post-match press conference. Talking to the reporters after the game, Ireland skipper Laura Delany broke down in tears while expressing her frustration over their dismal batting show. "If we were professional I wonder what the score would have been out there today to lose the match by 40 runs," the 25-year-old said. "If we were professional I wonder what the score would have been out there."@IrishWomensCric's captain Laura Delany was understandably quite emotional after her team's loss to Pakistan. Watchð pic.twitter.com/25tjIeMMOR — ICC World Twenty20 (@WorldT20) November 14, 2018 “I think 120-130 would be par on this wicket, unfortunately, we didn't have enough partnerships in the middle and that cost us the game,” the Ireland captain added. A brief video of her media interaction was shared by the official Twitter handle of the ICC World T20 and it was great to see the cricket fraternity and fans across the globe consoling the teary-eyed cricketer. Should be proud of what you guys achieve. Punch well above your weight constantly! — Alyssa Healy (@ahealy77) November 14, 2018 Genuine love! Let me reciprocate the beautiful gesture. We in Pakistan saw the match & as we cheered for our team we also commend your efforts. Already enough has been lodged onto a woman's life in today's world. We wish more strength, humbleness and gratitude to you all.#WT20 — Hassan Arshad (@HassanA46409700) November 14, 2018 This is what sucks about a majority of women's sports. There is a HUGE disparity between funding/sponsors from country to country, so it really is elite/professional vs amateur. Keep fighting the good fight ðªð¼ — Georgie Parker (@georgieparker) November 14, 2018 Not all defeats are a loss! You ladies were sensational to watch and you should be proud of yourselves. Don't question your professionalism, you already have it! You truly will be an inspiration to girls of Ireland. Hold your heads up high and keep going :) — Lady Owl (@house_owl) November 14, 2018 Good to see her show such emotion, it shows how much Laura cares and what it means to her and the team, I hope they get the funding they need to become full time pro's, they deserve to compete on equal terms to the other teams. — JC (@jscblarblar) November 14, 2018 They have match Day tomorrow against India Plz Be strong Lady we are already proud of Each one of U Every single woman Participating in this world No matter which country they are from Nd We Love Ur Passion Hard Luck — Syed Rizvi (@SyedRiz46367215) November 14, 2018 Well said @lauradel14 . There definitely needs to be investment by @ICC and all country governing bodies to make women's cricket a fully professional sport. There was some very talented players on display last night that would massively benefit from the sport being professional. — Simon Oliver (@RedskinsUK21) November 14, 2018 @lauradel14 take pride in what you've achieved against the odds.

  7. Touted as one of the favourites in the tournament, Indian women's cricket team fired warning shots early in the ongoing ICC World T20 on the back of some sublime performances in the West Indies. The Harmanpreet Kaur-led side stunned New Zealand in their tournament opener before decimating arch-rivals Pakistan in the second match. While there have been a lot of positives for the Indian eves, pragmatic skipper Harmanpreet has arguably been the one that stands out amongst the rest. The right-hander became the first Indian woman to hit a T20I hundred when she smashed a 51-ball 103 against the Kiwis in the opening game at the Providence stadium in Guyana. © Reuters Going into the second game against Pakistan, Harmanpreet's leadership skills were also on full display as her side skittled the opposition with an emphatic seven-wicket triumph. Though a low total and Mithali Raj's 56-run knock didn't give Harmanpreet an opportunity to showcase her big-hitting abilities, but still the Indian T20I captain found a way to grab the headlines. Ahead of the Indo-Pak encounter, both the teams stood in unison for the customary national anthems on the field. The cricketers were also accompanied by young mascots who stood right in front of them before the national anthems from the two countries were played. pic.twitter.com/06Q3KxvfMU — Mushfiqur Fan (@NaaginDance) November 11, 2018 During India's national anthem, the mascot accompanying Harmanpreet fell ill. Taking notice of the young girl's health issues, Harmanpreet wasted no time in carrying her in her arms and handed her over to the management before taking the field. Harmanpreet didn't just showed her concern for the youngster, but also had the respect for the national anthem as she waited for it to get over before doing the needful. The Indian skipper's touching gesture was caught on tape and later shared on Twitter. Since then, every cricket fan across the globe has showered praise on Harmanpreet for showing her concern for the young girl. @ImHarmanpreet is and will always be a legend. As for why some of us see this as a no-biggie, everyday act of kindness & the west fawn over such displays of genuine care & look at it as a rare event, this thread is all you need. https://t.co/1kW5sO23IH — YonSolitaryHighland (@YonSolitary) November 12, 2018 Salute sister — Krio Fezzil (repeat mode villain) ðð (@mkkrioanku18) November 12, 2018 You showed the world it's not special about wining the game it's all about the wining the hearts.

We are proud of you.@ImHarmanpreet — M.G.Dinnimani (@MGDinnimani) November 13, 2018 Respected mam you are really good Indian. — Manish@rj (@Manishrj6) November 12, 2018 After recording two consecutive wins, the Indian team will now lock horns with Ireland in their third game on 15th November. But, their biggest test awaits on 17th November when Harmanpreet's side will take on mighty Australians in their Group B clash at the Providence stadium in Guyana.
  8. For a really long time, the worlds of men's and women's cricket shared a wide gap in pay structure, popularity and facilities. But, while things are getting better, they, thankfully, aren't the same anymore for women's cricket. Today, women cricketers have not only managed to carve their own niche, but their exploits on the field have made the game more popular among fans, who were earlier glued to men's events. Adding to its rise over the years, women's cricket is now set to witness a historic event - one that clearly highlights how far it has come. Breaking away from the shadows of their male counterparts, women's cricket now boasts of a standalone 2018 World T20, which is slated to begin from 9th November in the Caribbean. For the first time in history, women's cricket will have a showpiece ICC event that will not be a precursor or filler for the men's tournament. While the upcoming event surely marks the new age of women's cricket, it's journey over the years has been worth talking. Reflecting on the evolution of women's game, Indian women's star Jhulan Goswami gave an insight into how far they've come. © BCCL Jhulan, the only bowler in the women's game with over 200 ODI wickets, reflected on her time in international cricket and also looked ahead to the upcoming World T20 in West Indies. “I remember staying in an accommodation with bunk beds for my first World Cup, in 2005. For domestic matches, we often travelled unreserved in trains, and played on grounds where getting injured would have been very easy,” the 35-year-old wrote in her column for the ICC. “There were countless junior tournaments where we stayed in dormitories and slept on mattresses on the floor. There's been such a massive change to women's cricket since I started playing,” she said. The World Cup's league matches will be played in Guyana and St Lucia from 9-18 November with the two semifinals and the final in Antigua on 22nd and 24th November, respectively. This being the first ever standalone Women's World T20, Jhulan feels it will generate more publicity. “I was a part of all the previous ICC Women's World T20s right from the first one in 2009…Those were tournaments held alongside the men; yes, people were watching, and there was good publicity for the women's games, but what I found was that by having it simultaneously with the men, the women would be in the shadows,” she added. © BCCL On the previous world events being held simultaneously with the men's tournaments, she said: “Before the semifinals, people would not be aware about the women's games, as only the semifinals and the final were televised. So, we didn't get the publicity that we should have received”. Recalling the 2017 World Cup as the best in terms of organisation, Jhulan said things started to change with the 2009 edition in Australia. “I recall so many funny memories when I think about multiple teams sharing one bathroom. Back then, the IWCC (International Women's Cricket Council) and the WCAI (Women's Cricket Association of India) did a very creditable job with the resources they had," she said. © Twitter “But we could really see the difference in the 2009 World Cup in Australia, which was the first one organised by the ICC. All of a sudden, we had the best hotels, great grounds, a daily allowance. “Even for domestic tournaments, the BCCI's entry meant that flights replaced trains. Instead of fighting other passengers for a place to sit, we fought with each other for window seats!,” she concluded. The last few years have been transformational for the women's game and there is much greater interest and curiosity among spectators across the globe. Ever since its inception in 2004, International Women's T20 cricket has also come a long way as it no longer needs to feed of the men's version to grab limelight or fanfare. The women's game, now, thrives on the popularity of its own games and heroes who will be eager to prove their mettle once again in the historic event in the Caribbean.
