India vs Australia 3rd Test Live Streaming

Time for another enthralling test match between two cricket super powers India and Australia. India is enjoying a big lead of 2-0 in this four test match series. India might be serving dreams of beating Australia 4-0 and take a revenge of a whitewash they suffered in Australia last year. On the other hand Australia would strive hard to win the remaining two matches.

Australia has made some very serious moves towards their goals as they dropped four important players for remaining matches. The excluded members included Pattinson, Johnson, Khawaja and also the vice captain Shane Watson. The primary reason for their exclusion is some disciplinary issues.

India made just one change but that was a big one indeed. Sehwag is dropped and probably Dhawan or Rahane will open with Murali Vijay. Sehwag was out of form since his ton against England in the first test match last year. He got fair number of chances but he failed to perform. Apart from this, we reckon Dhoni will stick to the winning team.

Pitch at Mohali will offer some bounce and hence the conditions would be cherished by Harbhajan and Ashwin. Batting second would be a better option here as per the recent win records and also batting in the first two sessions on day one may be difficult due to early help the pitch may provide to the fast bowlers.

Indian cricket fans are expecting a white wash victory over Australia. Let us see what next as we are still left with two test matches and we all know how good are Australian players to bounce back and clinch a win!


India vs England 2012 Live Streaming Star Cricket ESPN

The wait is over and the big series is here. Indian fans are long awaiting an England tour to India especially for test series and here it comes! Indian fans are eager to see Indian team taking a revenge of 0-4 whitewash that Indian team suffered in England (2011). So an exciting test series awaits us which begins from today at Ahmedabad.

Sachin Tendulkar tries to regain his form whereas Sehwag, Gambhir, Yuvraj, etc have got back their touch to a small extent in the warm up and Ranji matches. In absence of legends Dravid and Laxman, now the Indian batting line up depends a lot on Sehwag, Gambhir, Rahane, Yuvraj, Dhoni, Sachin, etc.

India has called for spin supporting pitches against England. So apart from the home advantage India will also have pitches to support their bowling strength which is spin. India has three front line spinners viz. Ashwin, Ojha and Harbhajan. But hopefully England spinners don’t turn tables on Indian batsmen with good support from the pitch.

Overall it would be an interesting four match test series which would be followed by T20 and ODI series. A long tour with great enthralling matches ahead!

ICC World Twenty20 Live Streaming 2012

ICC World Twenty20 2012 brings us another cricket fair! 12 teams from around the world lock horns to claim the crown of World T20 champions. India, Pakistan and England are the teams so far who have already experienced the pleasure of winning T20 world cup. These three teams are still strong contenders to win this year’s world cup but teams like Srilanka, South Africa, West Indies, Australia, etc are no where behind.

Picking up a favourite at this moment is very difficult because all the teams have performed with crest and troughs. No team can be singled out as the best. Currently South Africa ranks number one in T20 rankings but they aren’t renowned to perform well in big events. England has all the T20 skills but they are a little off course on Asian tracks. Sri lanka has the the home advantage but also expectations pressure. Team India looks good with brilliant winning record in recent past in Indian sub-continent but some unfit players cause worries. Australia needs to pull socks before they slide further down in T20 rankings. Teams like West Indies and New Zealand can create upsets with their powerful performers and they have nothing to lose. We can expect surprises from teams like Bangladesh, Ireland and Afghanistan. Pakistani team is unpredictable but they are at their best in T20 cricket.

Spin will play a major role in this tournament. Teams will good spinners and batsmen to tackle good spin will have an upper hand. We can’t write off pace battery but pace would help only if there is swing to deceive the batsmen. Opening stands may fail but good solid batsmen to follow would cover up the loss because T20 is all about twenty overs!

Australia vs West Indies Live Streaming 2012 – ODI Series

Australia vs West Indies Live Streaming <-

Australia faces West Indies in a crucial match as the series is tied at 1-1. A total of three matches has been played so far with the first one going to Australia, second one to the West Indies and the third one ending in a tie. Teams are also set to make changes in the squads.

West Indies has brought in Adrian Barath in place of Kieran Powell for rest of the two matches. Barath has now fully recovered from his finger injury.  Powell’s performance so far was disappointing as he could managed scores of 8,0 and 12.

On the other hand, Australia made couple of changes to the squad. Ben Hilfenhaus and Peter Forrest will return to the team. They will replace Nathan Lyon and Dan Christian. Forrest didn’t play the last match to facilitate the inclusion of Lyon as a spinner on the slow track of St. Vincent. But the pitch here at St. Lucia won’t support the spinners, so Forrest is back to the squad as a batting option. Hilfenhaus’ inclusion is to improve the pace battery against West Indies.

The pitch here looks very similar to WACA as it has a bit of grass on it. The ground has an outstanding outfield and hence we can see good amount of runs being scored here. Interesting match in the context of the series result. Let us see will it be the hosts or will it be the visitors who win here.
