SPORT-IPL-GAMBHIR 2LAST

first_imgThere may be debate brewing over Dhoni underbowling R There may be debate brewing over Dhoni underbowling R Ashwin but Gambhir said he bowled his spinners full on most occasions. “There have been spinners who have done reasonably well in this tournament. Piyush Chawla has bowled really well for us. Sunil Narine coming back has done well for us, Shakib (Al Hasan) too has done well. It also depends on the captains on how they use the spinners. Sometimes if you dont have that much of confidence in your spinners you might not even end up bowling their four overs,” he said. “Amit Mishra (Delhi Daredevils) got two wickets in the previous game (against Sunrisers Hyderabad) but did not bowl his quota of four overs. It really depends on the captain as to how much confidence he has on his spinners,” Gambhir added. The nature of the wickets which have been flat on most of the venues have surprised him especially after the World Twenty20, Gambhir said. “It is little weird. You are expecting the wickets to be tired especially after the T20 World Cup but apparently the wickets have been very good. It is tough for the bowlers and normally it has been very good wickets to bat on,” he said. For a team that has relied on home advantage, Gambhir said theres nothing wrong in it. “I am always a believer of giving home advantage to the home side. There is nothing wrong in it. If you go and play in places like Australia or South Africa, there will always be bounce on those kinds of wickets. If you come to India and play, you expect wickets to turn and there is nothing wrong in it irrespective of what the format is. In IPL the wickets have been really good whether it is Eden Gardens or Bengaluru or Mumbai.” “Obviously home advantage does make a difference especially with the crowds support. When the crowd is in your favour and cheering for you, it does give you an extra boost that you are looking for; especially when you play in places like Eden Gardens or Mumbai or Bengaluru “Home advantage does not make that much of a difference but you need to be a bit clever in judging what a good total is on that particular wicket,” Gambhir said. KKR will be seeking a revival after their loss to Gujarat Lions in their previous match where they failed to defend 158 for four and lost by five wickets.

How they spent time after Mohali Test: India players have a blast at Yuvraj’s wedding, England chill in Dubai

first_imgThe Indian Test team celebrated its victory over England in the third Test by letting their hair down at the wedding celebrations of star all-rounder Yuvraj Singh right after the Mohali game ended, while the English players headed to Dubai to rest and recuperate.Captain Kohli led India to an eight-wicket win in the third Test which gave the hosts an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the five-match series. Hours after wrapping up the match inside four days, Kohli was also leading by example on the dance floor as the team members attended Yuvraj and Bollywood actress Hazel Keech’s sangeet and mehendi ceremony in Chandigarh on November 29.The couple tied the knot the next day at a Gurudwara in Fatehgarh Sahib, and then had another wedding ceremony in Goa on December 2 which saw the likes of Kohli and Rohit Sharma in attendance.Kohli, who was accompanied by his girlfriend Anushka Sharma in Goa, and Rohit with his wife Ritika, were among the host of other celebrities who attended the second wedding ceremony which took place according to Hindu rituals.Brotherman down! Best wishes to my older brother @YUVSTRONG12 ! All eyes on @ImZaheer now ??? pic.twitter.com/kYYyqSSCMc Rohit Sharma (@ImRo45) December 2, 2016Kohli and Anushka were unstoppable on the dance floor and were both seen shaking a leg with the bride and the groom.Another video of @AnushkaSharma & @imVkohli at @YUVSTRONG12 & @hazelkeech’s wedding ??????? #Virushka #YHPL #Virushka pic.twitter.com/Qnmk8Gjvd8 Sara?Virushka (@Virushka_folyf) December 5, 2016Meanwhile, Ravindra Jadeja, who hammered 90 and picked four wickets to win the man-of-the-match award in Mohali, was busy with his sister’s wedding in Jamnagar, Gujarat. Jadeja attended Yuvi’s wedding on Friday and was back home to join the celebrations the very next day.  advertisementOnly thing i do when i m not playing cricket.its my style of training ??? pic.twitter.com/D7OkmMuK4X Ravindrasinh jadeja (@imjadeja) October 25, 2016Alastair Cook’s men on the other hand, chose to spend their mid-tour break in Dubai with their families. The squad have permission to spend five days away from the tour with most, including Cook, first teeing off on the golf course in Chandigarh before heading to the middle east for a much-needed break.England batsmen have struggled to cope with the Indian spinners and pacers alike on this tour, even though the pitches in the first-three games were in no way rank turners. In fact the 22-yard strips in Mohali and Rajkot, where the first Test was played, turned out to be good for batting. Poor-shot selection and lack of application from the visiting batsmen have led to their downfall so far.England have also had to deal with injuries to its key players on this tour. Losing fast-bowler Stuart Broad in the third Test was a body blow for the visitors, while opener Haseeb Hameed broke the little finger on his left hand during the match. The 19-year-old has already gone back home to have a metal plate fitted on the damaged finger.Rest assured both teams are using this rare time off to stay as away from cricket as possible and contemplate how they are going to go about their jobs when the fourth Test gets underway in Mumbai from December 8.last_img read more
