Ind v NZ Test Series - Kohli Double, Rahane Tons Flatten Kiwis On Day 2

#IndvNZ #TestSeries

Day 2: Stumps - New Zealand, 29 for 0 (9 overs) trail by 529 runs

Rahane and Kohli put India in control at the end of the first day of the third Test.
Rahane and Kohli put India in control at the end of the second day of the third Test. 

Day two of the third Test in Indore was studded with centuries from #Virat #Kohli and #Ajinkya #Rahane. The pair added 365 for the fourth wicket and en route broke a series of record, both personal and partnership ones. It was indeed a day to remember for the pair as India went through two sessions without losing a wicket.

The tiring New Zealand bowlers were punished as the duo kept collecting runs before Kohli fell in the first over after Tea for 211 while Rahane departed after for 188. Rohit Sharma then carted the bowlers away for a quick-fire half-century after which India soon declared for 557/5.

#Martin #Guptill and Tom Latham have started their innings strongly, seeing out the nine overs unscathed. New Zealand end with 28/0, with Guptill on 17 and Latham on 6.

#Rohit #Sharma came out all guns blazing with the intent of scoring quick runs. With #Jadeja, he added 53 runs in 59 balls before reaching his fifty in the bargain. India have done enough to last them across both innings.

Ravindra Jadeja runs straight down the wicket. That, after a prior warning. A five-run penalty has been levied. 

Records tumbling: 
Kohli's 193* is the second highest by an Indian captain against New Zealand in Tests. Only Sachin Tendulkar's 217 in Ahmedabad in 1999 is higher.

New best scores: 
Kohli now has his second-best Test score, surpassing 169. Rahane, too, crosses his previous-best Test score of 147, getting to a score of 150-plus for the first time in Test cricket.

The last time two non-openers scored 150-plus in the same innings for India was Ganguly (239) & Yuvraj (165) vs Pakistan in Bangalore in 2007.

Kohli and Rahane surpass the Ganguly-Tendulkar stand of 281 to now being the second-highest against New Zealand in Tests. 

Century twins: 
After Kohli got to his century yesterday, Ajinkya Rahane scored his eighth Test century, his third at home, on the second day. Albeit increasing trouble against the short ball, he has emerged a winner. 

#LIVE #Score
India 557 for 5 decl
New Zealand 28/0 (9.0 Ovs)
Guptill  17 (30)

CWC15 LIVE - NZ Narrowly Overcome Spirited Bangladesh

#NewZealand v #Bangladesh,
13th Mar 2015

New Zealand just about managed to hold their nerve against a highly spirited Bangladesh team in their Pool A match at #SeddonPark in #Hamilton to lead Pool A without losing a game. They take the full 12 points from this group.

Bangladesh, on the back of a stunning victory over England a few days ago, produced yet another gutsy display, first with the bat through a superb #Mahmudullah century and then followed it up with dogged discipline in their bowling ranks, to take the match right down to the wire.

For New Zealand, they faced a real stiff test before the knockouts and that will do them some real good. A tough game, some changes in personnel, a rare BrendonMcCullum failure and most importantly good batting practice for the middle and late order batsmen.

New Zealand will now face either of #Pakistan / #WestIndies / #Ireland (the fourth placed team in Pool B) at Westpac Stadium, Wellington

Bangladesh in all probability will now face defending champions #India (toppers in Pool B) at the #MCG.

All in all a cracker of a game.

#LIVE #Score
Bangladesh - 288 for 7 
#Mahmudullah - 128*
#SowmyaSarkar - 51

New Zealand - 290 for 7 (48.5 overs)
#MartinGuptill - 105
#RossTaylor - 56

#ShakibAlHassan - 4 wickets

Man of the Match: Martin Guptill

CWC 2015 LIVE - Afghanistan Set 187 For NZ To Win

#Afghanistan v #NewZealand, #Napier
8th Mar 2015

Afghanistan have given a good account of themselves against mighty New Zealand to score 186 in their stipulated overs.

Winning the toss and electing to bat, they were off to a disastrous start losing 6 wickets for 59. #TrentBoult and #DanielVettori the wreckers in chief.  It took a good partnership from #ShamiullahShenwari and #NajibullahZadran to pull them out of the rut. Both scored cautious fifities to give the Afghan total some respectability.

Dan Vettori was the champion was New Zealand claiming 4 wickets for 18 runs in his 10 overs. Boult supported him with 3 wickets.

NZ have started their innings in usual belligerence led by #BrendonMcCullum
He's smashed 42 in 19 balls before being bowled by #Nabi

#LIVE #Score
New Zealand: 89 for 1, 15 overs
#MartinGuptill - 26*
#KaneWilliamson - 19*

CWC 2015: Million Dollar Catch?


There is contest going around in New Zealand at this ‪#‎CWC15‬.

Take a one handed clean catch in the audience and be part of a one million dollar kitty.

Notes - 
1. Catch must be single handed. Not two handed.
2. Catch has to be clean - no juggling, no rebounds
3. Catch must be completed - no half attempts or dropping after catching. #HerchelleGibbs are you listening?

The million dollars will be divided equally among all spectators who pull out this feat until the final of the world cup. So far just three people have managed to pull it off! This guy is one of them and he achieved his feat in today's game ‪#‎Pak‬ v ‪#‎UAE‬. Therefore he is currently sitting with a cool $333333=00 purse. 

As more people catch it as specified, the kitty per person will go down.

CWC 2015 - Biggest Match For England At The World Cup

#England v #NewZealand at #Wellington, 20th Feb 2015

Its been 32 years since England defeated New Zealand in a World Cup game.
That goes back to 1983 edition when they won a group match against the Kiwis.
Since then, they have been at the receiving end in 1992, 1996 and 2007.

Having lost to #Australia at the #MCG in their first game of the tournament, and pretty convincingly to say the least, the Englishmen have their task cut out. They have run into the other co-host of this tournament early in the competition, NZ are top form and their batting is on fire, the conditions will suit the home team and bowling looks equally balanced too. On the fielding front lets put both teams at par.

Given this situation, they have to really perform very well and win this game to entertain qualifying for the quarter finals with a high position in the group. Remember the lower you finish in your group, you would need to face a top team from the other!

England's batting seems to be their biggest problem at the moment. The bowlers are doing OK. Neither have they been able to chase well nor set competitive totals for their bowlers to defend.

#EoinMorgan needs to get his playing eleven and batting line-up sorted out immediately. #Ballance for #Bopara in the previous game was a good choice? Maybe .. maybe not!

#IanBell at the top needs to do bulk of the scoring to set foundation for an English win. #JamesTaylor seems to be the only one who is prepared to work it out and play a long innings. #Butler, #Root, Morgan all need to pull up their socks.

For the #Kiwis, their batting looks really solid.
#Mccullum and #Guptill at the top can be devastating. If not, #Williamson can dig deep and build the long innings. #RossTaylor, #CoreyAnderson and #LukeRonchi can tonk the ball all over the place if the game is in their zone! Very solid stuff this. This type of a lineup should score 300+ in almost every game unless they decide to throw things away (like they almost did in that game against #Scotland)

In the bowling department, its #JamesAnderson, #StuartBroad and #StevenFinn vs #TrentBoult, #AlanMilne, #TimSouthee and #KyleMills.

It all starts in a few hours at the #Westpac Staudium in #Hamilton...
May the best team win!
