Highlights of what is new in cricket!
Posted June 17, 2021 in Cricket News.
Here are the most interesting and important things to have happened in the cricketing world in the past few days:
1. Cricket commentator and former cricket player Sunil Gavaskar makes an interesting prediction about India’s international cricketer, Rohit Sharma, who captains the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premiere League and is the Vice-Captain of the Indian national team in the limited-overs format. He has recently been promoted to the position of an opener in Test Cricket. Sunil Gavaskar said in a recent podcast interview on the Cricket Analyst, "In his case, it’s always the first two-three overs. Those are the overs where his front foot is not quite getting to the pitch of the ball. But a couple of overs down the road, once his front foot starts reaching the pitch of the ball, then he is very good,"
2. Shane Bond, New Zealand cricketing coach, former cricketer and current Mumbai Indians coach, has made a statement about the ongoing World Test Championship in a virtual press conference arranged by Star Sports. He said,” ...if New Zealand wins the toss and bowl as well as they have, I think they'll bowl out India cheaply, and that ain't a bad thing”. Additionally, he has stated that new Zealand might be at risk if they don’t bowl India out ‘cheaply’. He went on to say, “The risk is if they (NZ) don't bowl them out, India has got two world-class spinners and are right in the game. So, it's the toss that is going to be huge. And that first inning is going to be huge."
3. England vs India women’s Only Test day one: The captain of the English team, Heather Knight, won the toss. However, she chose to bat against Mithali Raj-led the Indian team at County Ground in Bristol. On a less positive note, sources state that the England team was forced to play against India women’s team on a field that has already been used by the T20 men’s team.
4. WTC final update: Jasprit Bumrah, the Indian international cricket player and right-arm fast bowler, to open for the WTC final. He is set to start off the England tour against New Zealand on the 18th of June. This tour consists of five more matches in England. This gives him the opportunity to break the record of Kapil Dev, the former Indian cricketer, of taking out 100 wickets in 25 tests.
