Pakistan win the ICC Twenty20 cricket World cup finals vs Sri Lanka:Shahid Afridi & Razzaq match winners

The Pakistan cricket team has won the ICC Twenty20 World cup finals vs Sri Lanka,thanks to Razzaq and Shahid Afridi

shahid afridi matchwinner pakistan vs sri lanka worldcup finals></a>The Pakistan cricket team,the runners-up of the first edition of the ICC Twenty20 cricket World cup,played a fantastic game of Twenty20 cricket to lift the ICC Twenty20 cricket World cup. In the Twenty20 Worldcup finals vs Sri Lanka, Shahid Afridi and Razzaq, the often derided members of Pakistan cricket team, finally let their talent do the talking</p>
<h3>Razzaq, who earlier preferred playing ICL (Indian cricket League) compared to the Pakistan cricket team.was the hero of Pakistan’s bowling attack</h3>
<p>Razzaq bowled at speeds of just around 120 mph, but maintained a perfect length and line to get Pakistan the key wickets to leave Sri Lanka stranded at 30/3, which forced the Sri Lankan cricket team to down the shutters in the ICC cricket World cup finals against Pakistan and look to a far lower total</p>
<h3>Shahid Afridi, showed why he is the king of Twenty20 cricket, with an amazing batting performance</h3>
<p>Shahid Afridi is often criticized by the Pakistan cricket fraternity for throwing away his wicket despite his amazing talent. In the ICC cricket World cup finals, Shahid Afridi gave the Pakistan cricket fans no room for complaint as he bowled superbly and also played a match winning fifty that was calm and did not have any of the usual Afridi unwieldy hoicks to get caught at midwicket</p>
<p>An amazing cricket turnaround for Shahid Afridi, the hero of the ICC Twenty20 World cup winning Pakistan cricket team. Kudos to Shahid Afridi and the Pakistan cricket captain, Younis Khan for getting the best out of the unpredictable Shahid Afridi</p>
<h3>Younis Khan, the captain of the Pakistan’s Twenty20 ICC cricket World cup cricket team,deserves all the credit</h3>
<p>Younis Khan has led the Pakistan cricket team admirably in the ICC Twenty20 cricket World cup. In the Twenty20 World cup finals vs Sri Lanka, Younis Khan seemed unflappable and calmly worked on the confidence of the bowlers,even when they were being thrashed by Sangakarra and Mathews at the end of the Sri Lankan innings</p>
<p>Younis is no doubt an inspirational captain and his amazing leadership was the turning point of the Pakistan cricket team’s fortunes in the ICC Twenty20 World cup finals. Nurturing and inspiring talents such as Shahid Afridi is no easy task and Younis Khan did a fantastic job of motivating this talented but extremely unpredictable Pakistan cricket team to win the Twenty20 cricket World cup</p>

Murali strikes to give Sri Lanka hope in Sri Lanka Vs Pakistan ICC Twenty20 World cup cricket finals

ICC World cup cricket finals Pakistan 65/1 off 10 overs chasing Sri Lanka’s 138 off 20 overs

muralitharan Pictures, Images and PhotosMurali got the key wicket of Shahzib as Pakistan may have to apply the brakes a bit chasing 138 runs. The Pakistan cricket team is cruising along at 65/2 but the Pakistan cricket batsmen will have to negotiate Lasith Malinga and Mendis to beat Sri Lanka in the ICC World cup Twenty20 cricket finals

Its not over the bar and shouting yet for the Pakistan cricket team in the ICC Twenty20 World cup cricket finals, but the Pakistan cricket team currently holds most of the aces vs the Sri Lankan cricket team

Sri Lanka Vs Pakistan ICC Twenty20 cricket final:Sangakarra ’s fightback gives Sri Lanka hope

Sri Lanka Vs Pakistan ICC Twenty20 cricket World cup finals live cricket scores: Sri Lanka 138/6 off 20 overs,Sangakarra 64 off 52

a href=”http://media.photobucket.com/image/sangakarra/suhailchandhok/Suhail Cricket/India_vs_SriLanka032.jpg” target=”_blank”>Pakistan are still the favorites for the ICC Twenty20 cricket World cup finals but Sangakarra ’s cameo gives the Sri Lankan bowlers some target to bowl at.The Sri Lankan cricket team ’s batsmen have struggled and with the score reading 30/3 off 5 overs,there really seemed to be no hope for the Sri Lankan cricket team, but Sangakarra ’s beautifully paced knock of 76 gives the Sri Lankan cricket team at least a fighting chance against the Pakistan cricket team in the ICC Twenty20 cricket finals

Sangakarra’s innings in the Sri Lanka Vs Pakistan ICC Twenty20 cricket World cup finals was beautifully paced

Sangakarra played an effortless innings under pressure after the Pakistan bowlers had the Sri Lankan batsman on the floor and ready for a knockout at 30/3. due toe Razzaq incredible spell of slow medium pace.Sangakarra played perfect cricketing shots as the Sri Lankan cricket team crawled their way back into the match due to Sangakarra’s heroics and got to 138 runs off 20 overs

Sangakarra was ably supported by Mathews, as the Sri Lankan cricket team’s rearguard action saw them get a reasonable,if not respectable score in the ICC World cup Twenty20 finals against Pakistan

Mathews , the hero of the Sri Lankan cricket team in the ICC Twenty20 World cup semifinals against the West Indies cricket team,demonstrated that he is no novice with the bat, as he smashed 35 runs off 23 balls and got over 30 runs off the last 2 overs

An exciting end to the Sri Lanka Vs Pakistan Twenty20 World cup cricket finals is in store, as Sri Lanka will hope that Lasith Malinga comes to the party

Dwayne Bravo dashes Indian cricket team ’s hopes in Twenty20 World cup after Yuvraj ’s cameo:India Vs West Indies World cup Twenty20 scorecard

Dwayne Bravo had an incredible all round outing as the West Indies cricket team beat India, despite Yuvraj Singh’s fantastic knock

dwayne bravo india vs wi t20India vs WI World cup T20 Final Scorecard : India 153/7 off 20 overs (Yuvraj 67 off 43, Bravo 4/38) West Indies 156/3 (Bravo 66 of 36)
Dwayne Bravo was a key player of the Mumbai Indians IPL T20 cricket team and that Twenty20 cricket experience has made Dwayne Bravo an incredible T20 player. The Indian cricket team had a taste of Bravo ’s capability as he rocked the Indian team with a wonderful all round performance

Dwayne Bravo took 4 wickets as India started poorly in the World cup T20 vs the West Indies cricket team

The Indian cricket team was 30/3 off 5 overs due to some great bowling by Dwayne Bravo and Fidel Edwards as Gambhir,Raina and Rohit Sharma were out within the first five overs. You could almost say that this World cup Twenty20 cricket match was decided before the end of the fifth over

Dhoni and Yuvraj then steadied the Indian batting order but Dhoni was really too defensive (Yeah : I am speaking about Dhoni , Mahi, the Indian cricket captain)

Yuvraj Singh and Yusuf Pathan took the Indian cricket team to a respectable total in the T20 cricket match vs the West Indies but Bravo had other ideas

Yuvraj Singh hit an incredible flicked six off a yorker in the blockhole that again underscored Yuvraj Singh’s amazing talent as Yuvraj made 66 runs off just 43 balls. Yusuf Pathan also demonstrated his talent as he made a wonderful cameo of 32 runs, and again showed that Dhoni and the Indian cricket team are underutilizing Yusuf Pathan’s match winning abilities

Dwayne Bravo’s aggression made the Indian cricket team’s score of 153 runs seem woeful, as the West Indies batsmen ensured an easy win in this India Vs West Indies World cup Twenty20 cricket match

The Indian bowlers did a great job by getting Gayle and Fletcher out early. Dhoni also rotated the Indian bowlers well as the West Indies lost their match winner Gayle to Yusuf Pathan

But the Indian cricket think tank’s strategy of using slower bowlers backfired as Dwayne Bravoa and Lendl Simmons turned out to be fantastic players of spin bowling and took the West Indies cricket team to an easy win by smashing the spinners at ease to the boundary

A good outing for Bravo and the West Indies in this World cup Twenty20 Super Eights cricket match as the Indian cricket team will look to reassess their batting line up for the forthcoming matches

Many more Twenty20 cricket matches in this cricket T20 world cup, and the Indian cricket team still have a chance, but this defeat against West Indies was definitely a rude awakening for the Dhoni ’s Indian cricket team. The West Indies cricket team however would now fancy their chances of winning the Twenty20 cricket World cup

Pragyan Ojha spins India to win vs Bangladesh in Twenty20 cricket World cup opener

Pragyan Ojha stages a rescue act for India in the opening match of the Twenty20 cricket World cup vs the Bangladesh cricket team

pragyan-ojhaPragyan Ojha would hardly have expected to be a hero in the Indian cricket team’s first Twenty20 World cup 2009 encounter vs Bangladesh after Yuvraj Singh ’s heroics (41 off 18 balls) saw India make 180 runs off 20 overs. But Pragyan Ojha’s spell of four wickets was key to India winning the Twenty20 World cup cricket match vs Bangladesh

But, the Bangladesh openers , Tamim Iqbal and Junaid Siddiqui had other ideas as the Bangladesh cricket team slogged their way to almost 50 runs off just 5 overs

A desperate Dhoni turned to Pragyan Ojha at such a crucial stage in the India Vs Bangladesh World cup Twenty20 cricket match and Ojha justified Dhoni’s confidence

Pragyan Ojha took 2 wickets off his first over and four wickets overall, and the Bangladesh challenge , especially from Junaid Siddiqui was nullified

Pragyan Ojha is in the Bishen Bedi mode, and loves to flight the ball even in a Twenty20 World cup cricket match

Pragyan Ojha is no pusher like Yusuf Pathan, or a slinger like Yuvraj Singh but a genuine slow left arm orthodox spinner in the Bishen Bedi even in crucial Twenty20 World cup cricket matches. Even Harbhajan Singh almost resorts to bowling medium pace, but Pragyan Ojha bowls traditional left arm spin and was able to get the ball to grip,bounce and spin even on the placid Trent Bridge pitch

A bigger challenge awaits Pragyan Ojha against better teams in the Twenty20 cricket World cup

Of course, Pragyan Ojha is the man of the match in the India Vs Bangladesh cricket match with four wickets, but bigger challenges await him in subsequent Indian cricket team matches of Twenty20 cricket cup. Seeing Pragyan Ojha ’s talents, teams such as Australia will look to target him and not let him settle to a proper line and length.

Pragyan Ojha needs consistent success against top class cricket teams in the Twenty20 cricket world cup to cement his place in the competitive Indian cricket team

Pride of Sri Lanka Army ! Ajantha Mendis the Man of the match and the Man of the series of Asian Cricket Cup -2008

Ajantha Mendis leads Sri Lanka to Twenty20 win over Pakistan in King City, Canada

Ajantha Mendis showed once again that class is permanent in any form of cricket. In an amazing display of spin bowling, Ajantha Mendis captured three wickets for just 23 runs to ensure a win for the Sri Lankan cricket team

Ajantha Mendis dismissed theories that talent Is not important in Twenty20 cricket

Through his immaculate bowling against the Pakistan cricket team in the T20 tournament in Canada, Ajantha Mendis once again demonstrated that cricketing talent is important in any form of the cricket game, whether it is Twenty20 cricket, test cricket or one day international cricket


Ajantha Mendis adds Pakistan scalps in the Canada T20 cricket tournaments

Ajantha Mendis had completely dominated the Indian cricket team in the recent India – Sri Lanka cricket series and he once again demonstrated his class by dominatIng the Pakistan cricket batsmen as well

Ajantha Mendis has, in the recent past, dominated the Indian and Pakistan cricket batsmen, renowned for playing spin,and seems destined to become another Sri Lankan cricket’s spin bowling legend

Xavier Marshall, Twenty20 star breaks sixes record in one day international cricket




Xavier Marshall

Xavier Marshall has broken the sixes record in one day international cricket

Xavier Marshall has slammed12 sixes in a single one day international cricket match for the West Indies against the hapless Canada cricket team. By launching 12 sixes in a single one day international cricket match, Xavier Marshall has beaten the long standing record of Sanath Jayasurya and Shahid Afridi who held the sixes record in one day internationals with eleven sixes in a single one day international cricket match

Xavier Marshall scored his 12 sixes record against a weak Canada cricket team

Xavier Marshall ’s 12 sixes record has come against the Canada cricket team which is definitely not even among the top 10 cricketing nations of the world. But hey, hitting 12 sixes is not easy against any opposition, and Xavier Marshall has showcased his talent

Xavier Marshall once again proves that Twenty20 cricket stars can also do well in one day international cricket

Xavier Marshall is of course one of the stars of the Stanford Cricket League. The typical reaction of cricket buffs is to dismiss Twenty20 cricket stars but Xavier Marshall could do well even in conventional one day international cricket and test cricket.

The Canada cricket team did not have a Mendis or a Muralitharan in their cricket team, but hey, full marks to Xavier Marshall for his incredible one day international cricket record

Vijaykumar Yo Mahesh,great prospect for Indian cricket




Vijaykumar Yo Mahesh-1

Originally uploaded by ashi.kacheria86

Vijaykumar Yo Mahesh is an exciting prospect for Indian cricket

Yo Mahesh is a classy bowler , ideally suited for Twenty20 and one day international cricket

Today, in the Delhi Daredevils Vs Mumbai Indians IPL Twenty20 cricket match,Yo Mahesh proved that he has nerves of steel. After being taken for 15 runs from his first over by a rampaging Sanath Jayasurya,Yo Mahesh then came back really well to take 4 wickets.

Yo Mahesh is another of those great finds of the Indian Premier League IPL Twenty20 cricket tournament

Yo Mahesh , along with Piyush Chawla, Mishra and definitely Gony, is one of the great finds of the Indian Premier League (IPL)

To restate the obvious,Yo Mahesh is going through a short learning curve.Bowling to the likes of Jayasurya,Graeme Smith and Dhoni is definitely done wonders for Vijaykumar Yo Mahesh

Yo Mahesh has done well in the IPL Twenty20 cricket competition, but given the competition , may find it difficult to break into the Indian cricket team soon

Yo Mahesh still has some time to get into the Indian cricket team , given the competition for medium fast bowlers , but is definitely an exciting prospect

Sanath Jayasurya,one man army for Mumbai Indians IPL cricket team




sanath jayasurya

Originally uploaded by hottest property

Sanath Jayasurya is the most devastating opening batsman of world cricket

Sanath Jayasurya is currently decimating the Delhi Daredevils bowlers in the crucial Mumbai Indians Vs Delhi Daredevils IPL cricket match

Watching Sanath Jayasurya bat is like watching a machine gun assault.

Sanath Jayasurya obviously believes in the policy of “Take no prisoners, and show no mercy”. Sanath Jayasurya treats every bowler as if the bowler was a green novice making his debut in cricket

Amazingly,Sanath Jayasurya has been dropped so frequently by the Sri Lankan cricket team

Sanath Jayasurya of the Sri Lankan cricket team and Virendra Sehwag of the Indian cricket team are simply once in a lifetime talents. When Sanath Jayasurya and Sehwag fail, their national cricket selectors probably feel that they dont deserve to have a place in the cricket team, due to a lack of technique

But its simply stupid to ever drop Jayasurya or Sehwag since they are such talented blokes and technique really does not matter when you have people with such talent who can create such fear among the opposition team ’s bowlers by their mere presence

I hope to see more of the classy Sanath Jayasurya , at least in the Indian Premier League

Anil Kumble shows oldies can play IPL (Indian Premier League)




Anil Kumble Circle

Originally uploaded by vijitvnair

Anil Kumble once again demonstrated that age is no bar for Twenty20 cricket, as he led the Bangalore Royal Chellengers to an amazing win over the famed Chennai SuperKings

Anil Kumble has an important Bangalore junction, named after him- the Anil Kumble Circle.

Anil Kumbledemonstrated his gratitude towards his home city, by helping the Bangalore Royal Challengers win an amazing cricket match against the Chennai SuperKings, led by Dhoni

\

In a classic display of spin bowling, Anil Kumble demonstrated his never-say-die attitude again as the Bangalore Royal Challengers surprised the Chennai SuperKings by 14 runs

Anil Kumble had an amazing spell of 14 runs for 3 wickets in the Bangalore Royal Challengers Vs Chennai SuperKings IPL cricket match

The Bangalore Royal Challengers are playing only for pride, and Anil Kumble epitomized that attitude by getting 3 wickets for just 14 runs in 4 overs. When Kumble came in to bowl, the Chennai SuperKings were 60 without loss, chasing a meagre score of 127 runs

Anil Kumble then seemed to be unplayable, as he spun out both openers, Fleming and Parthiv Patel, and then got rid of Badrinath, the best batsman in the Chennai SuperKings IPL cricket team


With Anil Kumble in form, the Bangalore Royal Challengers are capable of creating some more upsets in their last two games of the Indian Premier League
