  1. After starting their campaign on a high with a massive win over arch-rivals Pakistan, the Indian women’s cricket were given a heavy blow by the hosts New Zealand in their second league game of the ongoing 50-over World Cup at the Seddon Park, Hamilton. Playing on their home turf, the White ferns, shrugging off their disappointing performance in the opening encounter against the West Indies, got their campaign back on track beating the Mitahli Raj-led side by 62 runs. View this post on Instagram Apart from the opening phase of the match where the Indian bowlers picked up two early wickets, with just 54 runs on the board, the Indian team played catch-up to the opposition for the major rest of the game. First with the ball and then during the run chase. More than the defeat, it was the team’s tactics that left the fans scratching their heads. It all started at the toss when the Indian skipper invited the opposition to bat after winning the toss. View this post on Instagram On a turf that was tailor-made for batting, giving up the advantage was beyond anybody’s comprehension. If that was all, the management decided to drop the 18-year-old Shafali Verma to the bench after a few bad innings. Verma is arguably the biggest talent that the Indian team has unearthed in the last couple of years and it was important for the team management to back her to the tilt and give her the confidence to go out and perform freely. View this post on Instagram Their decision to shuffle the batting line-up proved to be diatster. Barring Smriti Mandhana, the top three was overhauled. Yastika Bhatia opened the innings alongside Mandhana while Deepti Sharma came in to bat at one down, with skipper Mitahli Raj pushing herself down to number four. The Indian fans also nt convinced with any of the decisions taken by the team management and slammed them for getting the game plan completely wrong. #CWC22 #TeamIndia Honestly not sure there is too much to read into what was said at the post-match from batting coach, other than him saying we will see a new approach day after tomorrow. More questions than answers for me, but if you'd like to watch https://t.co/xewIO54feR — Vinayakk (@vinayakkm) March 10, 2022Only in India we do this — Swati(she/her) (@swatibhardu) March 10, 2022Level of prep. The coaching unit has a few tough questions to answer when the time comes. #CWC22 | #NZvIND https://t.co/wtNtPVjaWH — Lavanya (Following #CWC22) (@lav_narayanan) March 10, 2022With the World Cup being the biggest tournament on a cricket calendar, it’s not the time for teams to try out new things but the Indian management did exactly that, and it came back to haunt them badly. After the defeat, India’s batting coach Shiv Sunder Das accepted that the team wanted to do things differently but it didn’t pay off. He even added that given the result they will most likely go back to the drawing board and devise a different strategy before the next game. View this post on Instagram History tells us that in big tournaments teams with set game plans tend to do better. We hope that the Indian players take note of that and pull up their socks if they want to go deep into the tournament. View the full article
  2. Virat Kohli’s tenure as white-ball captain came to an end, probably way before he would have liked. He has never won a single ICC trophy and it has been over two years since the cricketer had scored a century in any of the three formats of international cricket. In anybody else’s case, these three points would have been enough to call them a bad captain and a struggling batter but when the player in question is Virat Kohli, not everything is black and white all the time. View this post on Instagram What is for certain, a fact that Kohli remains one of the most successful Indian skippers when it comes to bilateral records and is looked at as the pioneer who brought about a fitness revolution within the squad. A recently retired Indian cricketer, Harbhajan Singh also credits him for introducing yet another mental change within his teammates, it was about having a winning mentality, which allowed the squad to have back to back Test series wins in Australia for two consecutive years, and allowed them to be at the cusp of win the unfinished Test series in England which is to continue in June 2022. View this post on Instagram Sharing that before Kohli became the captain, Bhajji said that the thought process for the Men in Blue while heading into Australia for a Test series was simply to survive their bowlers and manage to end the series in a draw. The idea of winning never entered their mind. The off-spinner then shared an incredible story from back in 2014 when Kohli had smashed 141 in Adelaide but couldn’t stop the opposition from taking the win. Singh recalled talking to Kohli about how the match could have ended in a draw and not a loss, to which the skipper had replied by saying that a draw has no value. View this post on Instagram "I remember in one of those series, where he had scored a lot of runs, although India had lost the Test series. India had to chase some 400 runs in that match and Kohli had scored a big century. So when he returned to the pavilion I told him that match could have ended in a draw, but he replied that 'there is no importance of a drawn Test, either you win or you lose and the day we learn to fight, we will learn to win and someday we will'," Harbhajan recalled. "And that is the change you have noticed in this Indian side. They went to Australia and beat them twice, they played well in England and I hope they beat South Africa in this series. So Kohli has perfectly played his role as a leader. And the aggressive approach, that has made Virat Kohli the player he is today,” he added. Then Bhajji went on to compare Kohli with his predecessor MS Dhoni as Test captains while calling the latter “soft” and saying that if Kohli would have been anything like Dhoni, he would not have been able to score as many runs as he has. It was the 2014 Test in Adelaide that led to the surprising mid-series retirement of Mahendra Singh Dhoni as the leader of white-ball cricket and that was when Kohli was handed over the responsibilities.

  3. It has been over a week since the Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) decided to take away the One-Day International captaincy from Virat Kohli and give it to Rohit Sharma, thereby making him the leading man of white-ball cricket in India. Former Indian opener and analyst Gautam Gambhir has finally had his say in the whole chapter of Kohli vs Sharma and has shown faith in the latter to shoulder the responsibility with utmost sincerity and as suggested that Sharma will be a successful leader. Gambhir (in Star network) said "Rohit Sharma has won 5 IPL titles as a captain, he is calm, keeps things simple and don't push the players so hard so India will do well under Rohit, they are in safe hands". — Johns. (@CricCrazyJohns) December 12, 2021 While speaking to Star Network, Gambhir said "Rohit Sharma has won 5 IPL titles as a captain, he is calm, keeps things simple and don't push the players so hard so India will do well under Rohit, they are in safe hands." Ever since Kohli’s removal from captaincy made headlines, his fans have been extremely critical of the Indian cricket board, especially after reports came in suggesting that he was given a 48-hour ultimatum after he had refused to step down. The All-India Senior Selection Committee also decided to name Mr Rohit Sharma as the Captain of the ODI & T20I teams going forward.#TeamIndia | @ImRo45 pic.twitter.com/hcg92sPtCa — BCCI (@BCCI) December 8, 2021 Obviously, under such circumstances, Gambhir’s praise for Sharma brought some negative comments from the fans of the former skipper, who felt that Gambhir was playing favourites and being biased against Kohli. They felt that Gambhir was giving Sharma way too much credit for all his IPL victories especially because of the talent-laden squad that the Mumbai Indians have managed to maintain over the years and said how anybody else could have also managed to win those trophies if they were in Sharma’s position. Its funny how we compare IPL wins now to International cricket wins! IPL!?? I mean, look at MI’s team; captain working from home also can win MI matched — Aseem Kumar (@aseemkumar04) December 12, 2021According to this logic- ROHIT >>> DHONI — Nikhil Vaidya (@ImNIKDYA) December 12, 2021But I feel there was not much rememberable contribution from Rohit with the bat on any occasion of MI s important games.. What my worry is will @ImRo45 s batting performance go down with captaincy on his head — Marudhu Mahe (@marudhu33) December 12, 2021If IPL is the criteria, Rohit shouldn't even be in the team lol. KL, Dhawan, Gaikwad, Shaw, Padikkal all scored more runs lol — KingKohli™️ (@_cricketfan_) December 12, 2021There has been rumours of rift between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli for years now and even though both the cricketers have shown support for each other in public in one way or another, more and more reports continue to flow either about a locker room dispute, according to the recent most development, the fact that Rohit demanded the T20I and ODI captaincy even though Kohli had no intention of stepping down from the latter. Goals & excitement Working with Rahul Dravid @imVkohli's legacy as India's white-ball captain #TeamIndia's new white-ball captain @ImRo45 discusses it all in this special feature for https://t.co/Z3MPyesSeZ Watch the full interview https://t.co/JVS0Qff905 pic.twitter.com/kFlqZxWh5t — BCCI (@BCCI) December 13, 2021 However, within days after being crowned the captain, Sharma sat down for an interview for the BCCI in which he thanked and commended Kohli for leading the Men in Blue for five years and said that he had a lot of fun playing the game by his side. Although Kohli may not be the captain, it would be interesting to see the kind of performance he presents with the bat after getting rid of some of those shoulder-crushing responsibilities.

  4. The Indian women's hockey team gave a tough competition to Great Britain in their match to secure a bronze medal in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. India was leading at the halfway mark with a lead of 3-2 but in the second half, Great Britain changed the game and won with a lead of 4-3. Yes, it’s surely heartbreaking but it doesn’t take away from the sheer efforts that the team has put all throughout. Shah Rukh Khan, who played the role of a national hockey coach in Chak De! India, was disappointed too but he made sure that he appreciated the team for the hard work they put in and lauded their spirit. He wrote in a tweet, "Heartbreak!!! But all reasons to hold our heads high. Well played Indian Women’s Hockey Team. You all inspired everyone in India. That itself is a victory." © Twitter/Shah Rukh Khan After this tweet started to go viral, people started to bash King Khan for being an attention seeker and also accused him of shedding 'fake tears' on the loss. Here are the reactions: © Twitter/Shah Rukh Khan © Twitter/Shah Rukh Khan © Twitter/Shah Rukh Khan © Twitter/Shah Rukh Khan © Twitter/Shah Rukh Khan While there were haters, there were also people who appreciated SRK for his positive message. © Twitter/Shah Rukh Khan © Twitter/Shah Rukh Khan © Twitter/Shah Rukh Khan We also felt this hatred was totally uncalled for because all SRK was trying to do was motivate the team and help them through this crushing time. Previously, after the squad entered the semi-finals, Shah Rukh had tweeted, “Haan haan no problem. Just bring some Gold on your way back….for a billion family members. This time Dhanteras is also on 2nd Nov. From: Ex-coach Kabir Khan," referring to his role in Chak De! India. Directed by Shimit Amin, the film revolved around the state of women’s Hockey in the country. Like SRK, we too are proud of our women. View the full article
  5. The Indian women’s hockey team’s inspiring journey at Tokyo Olympics came to an end as they lost 4-3 to Great Britain in a high-octane bronze medal match. After the men's team won the bronze medal the previous day, the entire country was waiting with bated breath to see our women players win their first-ever Olympic medal in hockey, but their historic campaign ended in tears, proving that not all fairytales have a perfect ending. Our players gave it their all but unfortunately, it wasn’t their day and they ended up second best on the day, losing to 2016 Olympic champions Great Britain. They might have fallen short in the bronze medal game but they exceeded all expectations and made the entire country proud. © Reuters However, the visuals of our players crying after the full-time hooter went viral on social media and it broke every Indian heart and left each one of us emotional. Heartbreaking to see the women's hockey cry like this. I feel teary eyed myself. They have really given their best & done us all proud. Chin up women, you've fought brilliantly pic.twitter.com/IBoZeYPYRz — Sankul Sonawane (@Sankul333) August 6, 2021 Heartbreak!!! But all reasons to hold our heads high.

Well played Indian Women’s Hockey Team. You all inspired everyone in India. That itself is a victory,” wrote Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan. We narrowly missed a medal in Women’s Hockey but this team reflects the spirit of New India- where we give our best and scale new frontiers. More importantly, their success at #Tokyo2020 will motivate young daughters of India to take up Hockey and excel in it.

If you're not crying with Rani Rampal and the girls, you've probably not seen this match. — Joy Bhattacharjya (@joybhattacharj) August 6, 2021 Not just the players, even the head coach Sjoerd Marijne broke down completely during the post-match press conference while answering the journalists. We did not win a medal, but I think we have won something bigger. We have made Indians proud again and we inspired millions of girls that dreams CAN come true as long as you work hard for it and believe it! Thanks for all the support! — Sjoerd Marijne (@SjoerdMarijne) August 6, 2021 “We did not win a medal, but I think we have won something bigger. We have made Indians proud again and we inspired millions of girls that dreams CAN come true as long as you work hard for it and believe it! Thanks for all the support!,” Marijne wrote on the micro-blogging site. We all are proud of the achievements of our women’s team who qualified to the knock-out stage of the Olympics for the first time in their history and reignited everyone's interest in the sport that is so close to our hearts. They failed to win a single game at the Rio Games but their Tokyo 2020 campaign was a roller-coaster ride. They began the tournament with a series of losses but won both their last two group games and reached the quarterfinals riding on their luck and talent. © Reuters The team pulled off the biggest shock of the tournament when they got the better of a strong side like Australia in the quarters to reach a historic semifinal where they lost to Argentina in a closely-contested match. Words fall short every time we try to sum up our emotions and their incredible journey. Sitting in front of our TV sets, we experienced each and every emotion, something that had never happened before, at least not in our lifetime. View the full article
  6. Indian men’s hockey team ended their 41-year old wait for an Olympic medal as they defeated Germany 5-4 in an exhilarating match to clinch the bronze medal at Tokyo 2020. Before this, India’s last Olympic medal in Hockey came more than four decades ago when they finished on top of the podium at the 1980 Moscow Games. © Twitter/VP Secretariat Indian players knew how big of a match it was and they played as if their lives depended on it and produced perhaps their best performances of the tournament and ended their Olympic medal drought. Brilliant in Blue Congratulations Indian Men’s #Hockey Team on the spectacular victory to give us an Olympic medal after 41 long years. This historic win at #Tokyo2020 will inspire generation of sportspersons. All the very best for future. #Cheer4India @thehockeyindia — Naveen Patnaik (@Naveen_Odisha) August 5, 2021 Germany, known for their defensive structure, began the match with high intensity, thinking to take India by surprise and to some extent, succeeded in doing that, with Timur Oruz breaking the deadlock in the second minute of the opening quarter. Simranjeet Singh scored the equaliser to pull things back but the Germans continued playing with their high tempo and pounced on two defensive errors by Indian players and scored two quick goals to go 3-1 up. © Twitter/We Are Team India But from there on something clicked and Indian players took charge of the game and finished the quarter with the scores level at 3-3. India scored two more goals in the third quarter to take a two-goal lead for the first time in the match and then closed out the match in the final with their astute defending. People were crushed when the Indian men’s hockey team had failed to qualify for the 2008 Beijing Games and couldn’t win a single game four years later in Rio and finished last in their group. But this win has definitely proved every critic wrong and began a new chapter in the history of Indian hockey. © Twitter/Ritu Phogat In a cricket-mad country like India, other sports never get the kind of limelight they deserve but such wins would help change this trend and inspire the next generation of players to take up hockey sticks and become a professional. Describing the achievement as historic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said this victory would remain etched in the memory of every Indian fan in every corner of the world. Historic! A day that will be etched in the memory of every Indian. Congratulations to our Men’s Hockey Team for bringing home the Bronze. With this feat, they have captured the imagination of the entire nation, especially our youth. India is proud of our Hockey team. — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) August 5, 2021 “Historic!

Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar also congratulated the hockey contingent for their first podium finish in 41 years and making the country proud.

  7. The Indian cricket team got completely dominated by the hosting Sri Lankan side in the third and final T20I match, thereby losing the series 1-2. With none of the batters of the Men in Blue able to score more than 23 runs, the entire squad was wrapped up for 81 runs, and the Lions, Dhananjaya de Silva, were able to chase the menial total in just 14.3 overs. A lot of things went wrong for skipper Shikhar Dhawan during this series. First, team all-rounder, Krunal Pandya tested positive for the COVID-19 virus and had to sit out for two out of three matches. Then, as a safety precaution, eight of his teammates, who were suspected to be close to Pandya while he had the virus, were also made to miss out. View this post on Instagram As a result, names like Prithvi Shaw, Surkyakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, and Ishan Kishan sat in their hotel rooms as Dhawan was burdened with the task of playing back to back T20Is with a bunch of cricketers with little to no international experience. Still, the 35-year old took up the challenge and tried his best as a captain, although a golden duck in the third and deciding match of the series, didn’t help his case much. View this post on Instagram Having said that, there is no denying the fact that Dhawan managed to turn a lot of heads with his leadership and team management skills, especially during the ODI series when he had a full bench strength and knew how and where to deploy the cricketers at his disposal. He also earned the respect of the opposing side and surrounded him after the T20I series was over just to listen to whatever the southpaw had to say to them out of the years and years of experience, regard and sheer sportsmanship. #ShikharDhawan is absolutely awesome! Imagine #Twitter, if this was #RahulDravid#SLvsIND #Respect Video: @SDhawan25 pic.twitter.com/vnfsygJP7d — Suvajit Mustafi (@RibsGully) July 29, 2021 Regardless of how depleted the Indian cricket team was, a win is a win and the Sri Lankan squad played the three matches with the grit and passion to not just book the series in their name but also gain the respect of the fans of the Indian cricket team, which is rather difficult and a rare thing to achieve.

  8. Day 5 of the first Test between India and England saw the hosts crumble in the second innings and losing the match by 227 runs. Even though Indian skipper Virat Kohli did his best to save his side from the loss and struck 72 off 104 deliveries on an unpredictable Chepauk pitch, he was unable to bring the match to a desired end. View this post on Instagram In the post-match conversation with former India player turned commentator and analyst Murali Kartik, Kohli spoke about his experience of the first Test in Chennai and his mentality going forward in the series. “It was a pretty slow wicket with not much happening in the first two days with the ball. You have to give credit where it’s due and we have to understand the things that we’ve done decently in this game. England played far more professionally,” Kohli said, lauding Joe Root’s side for clearly being the more prepared team. Got a message for @Root66? 258 runs in the match That sensational catch 🤲 All in his 100th Test match 🇮🇳 #INDvENG 󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 pic.twitter.com/aCIlx6gdKU — England Cricket (@englandcricket) February 9, 2021 “You need your bowling unit to step up and perform more collectively. It’s okay, lack of execution is understandable. We’re always learning as a side. Test cricket is a grind. England were ready for the grind and were far more equipped,” the skipper addressed the issue where he felt India ended up losing the match. “Firstly start off with good body language, understand the fields, and at the end of the day it’s the mindset. As a side, we’re a side that always improves and knows how to bounce back,” Kohli talked about how he is expecting out of his team and himself in the remaining three Test matches of the series. View this post on Instagram Finally, when asked about all the noise created by Rishabh Pant on the field while keeping wickets, Kohli appreciated the young athlete’s motivation and even promoted his mentality of keeping his teammates entertained and dialed in especially when the things don’t seem to go their way. “Yeah, Pant is a guy who likes to have fun on the field. That’s his personality and it’s very helpful for the team. He brings a lot of energy,” Kohli said. The second Test match will also be taking place at the Chepauk stadium from February 13 but with 50% of the seating capacity filled with fans who will have to maintain strict social distance rules and will be required to wear face masks at all times.
