India vs Pakistan 2nd One Day Match Live Streaming

India plays Pakistan in the 2nd ODI at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Pakistan is in the driver’s seat with one win in this ODI series. Notably Pakistan has defeated India four times at the Eden Gardens. So if they make it for the fifth time, they would also win the trophy and the third ODI at Delhi would mere be a formality. A win here for India will keep the series alive.

MS Dhoni played a memorable innings scoring 113 runs when Indian innings was dismantled at 29 for 5. Raina supported him pretty well followed by a good partnership with Ashwin as well. A similar innings was played by Pakistan’s Nasir Jamshed who also scored a century. India fell short of twenty odd runs. Pakistan won the match with 11 balls remaining.

We have seen good bowling from both the sides. Bowlers are making maximum use of swing friendly conditions. We have also seen bowlers making optimum use of allowed bouncers and also slow deliveries. It is always good to see bowlers troubling batsmen in a game which is merely a batsmen’s game nowadays.

The Eden Gardens pitch and conditions will support seamers as well as the spinners to a small extent. The pitch tests patience of the batsmen. The openers from both the teams will have to settle down first and then capitalise on it later. We can certainly expect another tight finish here between India and Pakistan.


India vs Srilanka T20 Match Live Streaming

India takes on Srilanka in a T20 International match today at Pallekele. After a dominating win over Srilanka in the ODI series, India would love to stamp their authority in this T20 match. Considering the margin of win in the ODI series, India certainly has an upper hand but we can’t forget that Srilanka has recently won T20 series against Pakistan and they are also ranked third in T20 rankings.

T20 World cup is round the corner so none of the teams would take this match lightly. Especially when you know you are going to play the world cup in Srilanka, you can’t afford to take it lightly! Players from India like Pathan, Kohli, Pandey, Gambhir, Raina, Sehwag and Dhoni have sparkled on this tour.

Meanwhile Srilanka faced the same issue of inconsistency even in the last ODI. Loss of Sangakkara is still felt but someone from the team needs to lead from the front and score big. Dilshan loves this format and so does someone like Sehwag. So we may experience absolute crackers in this match.

India vs Srilanka 5th ODI Live Streaming

India has already won this series with an unbeatable lead of 3-1 and they would like to clinch this series 4-1. At the same time Srilanka would like to play for pride and win this one to reduce the margin of loss to 3-2. Also we shouldn’t forget that these teams still have to play a T20 match after ODI series and they also feature in T20 World Cup that is to be played in Srilanka from September 2012.

Indian confidence will be high with the good form of Gambhir, Raina and Virat Kohli. Irfan Pathan has bounced back pretty well in his career with some good performances in Asia Cup and now this ODI series. He has provided a good stand to the middle order batsmen and anchor the team to win. Bowling looked a bit absurd in the start but as the series went on the bowling looked better with Zaheer, Sharma, Pathan, etc. The only big failure in this series is Rohit Sharma who has hardly contributed to the team’s totals.

Srilanka has to recover from the loss of Sangakkara due to injury. He has been the most integral part of the team but he will take almost three more weeks to recover. On the other hand the primary batsmen like Jayawardene, Dilshan and Tharanga have lacked consistency. Bowling has been not so good and they had shortcomings in the fielding also.

Let us hope this match doesn’t turn out to be a mere formality and it presents a stiff competition between the two teams.

India vs Srilanka 4th ODI Live Streaming

India vs Srilanka 4th ODI Live Streaming <–

India vs Srilanka ODI Series has reached an interesting stage where although India is leading the series 2-1 but still its hard to chose who is the better team. One win for Srilanka here today and series would be leveled 2-2 making the fifth match nothing less than a final.

India were down when they entered third ODI but they turned tables on the home team and won the third match in style. After clinching early wickets, India bowlers failed to restrict Srilankans to a small total. Srilanka scored a total which was never ever chased in Srilanka. But India played better cricket and clinched a win.

Gambhir scored a brilliant century and it was Raina-Pathan who anchored the innings to victory in the end. Gambhir scored his 11th ODI century and contributed the most in this win. Rohit Sharma has been a worry in this Indian batting line up as he could manage just 5 runs in three innings. He might be dropped in the fourth match.

Srilankan camp suffered a blow when the news came out that Sangakkara will be rested for atleast four weeks due to injury. He has been a corner stone of the Lankan batting line up and he has also scored maximum runs in 2012 ODI cricket. His absence will certainly be felt in the team. Batsmen like Dilshan, Jayawardene, Tharanga, etc need to click if Srilanka has to win from here on.

India vs Srilanka 3rd ODI Live Streaming

India vs Srilanka Live Streaming <–

India was thrashed in the second ODI match against Srilanka after they clinched a win in the first ODI. Its time now for the 3rd ODI to be played at R. Premadasa Stadium where MS Dhoni and his team would like to win and take a lead of 2-1. Same would be the case in the Srilankan camp where even they would love to win here and take a lead in this 5 ODI series.

The disastrous performance in the 2nd ODI can be a setback for the Indian team in this series. But if they don’t forget the loss and move on, it could cost them the series. They can’t afford to take too long before coming back on track. Contrasting performances in the first two matches is a bit of concern for the team. The whole team needs to be consistent with their performances.

MS Dhoni may look forward to make some changes in the team. Rohit Sharma could sit out as he has scored just 1 run in the first two matches. India would love to see another blistering knock from Sehwag or Kohli.

Srilankans would be high at confidence after a big win in the last match. Dilshan and Tharanga are back in form. Jayawardene, Mathews, Sangakkara add power to the middle order. Bowling looks better after the second ODI. So overall Srilanka has an upper hand also considering them as favourites due to the home conditions.

India vs Srilanka 2nd ODI Match

India has got a flying start to the ODI series in Srilanka. India scored a mammoth score to register a 21 runs win over the home team. Virat Kohli continued his exceptional form in 2012 and scored yet another ton. In return Sangakkara bounced back with even a bigger ton but his efforts went in vain as Srilanka couldn’t chase the target.

Srilanka is relying too much on Sangakkara and it badly needs other batsmen to come up with some good performances. With the likes of Tharanga, Dilshan and Jayawardene in the squad, Srilankan batting line up looks dangerous. A bad news for the home team is that Kulasekara is out of the remaining matches due to an injury.

Virender Sehwag seems to have regained his lost form by scoring a 96 in last match. He missed his ton with yet another nervous ninty. Virat Kohli has once more proved that he is one of the most important ODI batsmen in the current cricket scenario. To a good extent, we saw good contributions from Dhoni, Raina, etc. Even the Indian bowling line up did a good job to content the Srilankan batsmen below 300 while they failed to chase the target.

Pakistan Vs Bangladesh Final Live Streaming – Asia Cup 2012 Neo Cricket Live

Pakistan Vs Bangladesh Final Live Streaming <-

India and Srilanka were considered to be the favourites to win the Asia Cup and as we all know cricket is a game of uncertainties, the outcome is completely something we didn’t imagine. Both the favourites are eliminated and it is Bangladesh who will play Pakistan in the finals. This has been a delightful event for Bangleshi team and their fans. This is the first time they would be competing in the finals of Asia Cup.

Bangladesh narrowly lost their first match to Pakistan and registered emphatic wins over India and Srilanka. India was tied up with Bangladesh on 8 points but head to head factor allowed Bangladesh to march ahead to the finals. Batsmen like Tamim Iqbal and Shakib al Hasan has provided a competitive edge to the batting line up. They have received a good support from Juhurul Islam, Rahim and Hossian.

Bangladeshi bowling was upto the mark against Srilanka and Pakistan and it was only against India where they leaked more runs. Murtaza, Shahadat Hossain and Nazmul Hossain have struck form and spinners like Abdur Razzak, Nasir Hossain, etc are upto the mark as well.

Pakistan has been the top team in the points tally thanks to a bonus point win over Srilanka. Their batting department looks consistent with the likes of Hafeez, Jamshed, Misbah, Younus Khan & Umar Akmal. Bowling had a bad time against India where they gave away 330 runs. Otherwise their bowlers have been consistent and they would like to do some heroics against Bangladesh in the finals.

Mirpur pitch has been a bit biased for teams batting second. Chasing under lights would be a captain’s first choice after winning the toss.
