Vaikundarajan On India’s 3-0 Series Victory Over Zimbabwe

Having lost the 1st two matches in their on-going series against India, Zimbabwe only chance to salvage a win would have to be in the 3rd ODI. Batting first, Zimbabwe got off to a slow start and managed to put up a score of only 123.

“The series has been a sort of nightmare for Zimbabwe and it is finally over,” says Vaikundarajan. “Losing the series to 2nd string Indian team will be a blow to the Zimbabwe team.”

The bowling attack spearheaded by Bumrah dismissed the opponents for a lowly 123 in 44.2 overs at Harare cricket ground. Bumrah ended his spell with impressive figures of 4/22 while spinners Yuzvendra Chahal (2/25) and Axar Patel (1/16) added to the damage.

Vaikundarajan Sends His Wishes To Birthday Boy Virat Kohli

Virat Kholi-Vaikundarajan

India faceoff South Africa in the 1st Test match of the Paytm series held at Mohali. Much has been speculated about the nature of the pitch. The Mohali wicket is described as an ageing pitch that will slow down over the time. “Some pundits have criticized the home pitches not favouring the hosts,” explains Vaikundarajan. He quickly adds, “However, cricketing world is not new to this scenario. It brings in a challenge.”

What makes this day special is that Virat Kohli will be leading the Indian team as their captain on his 27th birthday, says Vaikundarajan. Wishes have flown in from former and current cricketers.

Virat Kohli has a huge responsibility to shoulder but seems to be enjoying all the attention. “I’m leading for the first time in India, and it’s my birthday, too. It’s a doubly special day for me,” Kohli said after winning the toss and deciding to bat first.

The performance in 2015 has been shaky but there is no doubt about Team India’s talented eleven. Vaikundarajan believes Kohli is the perfect choice to lead India into the next era and create a new milestone. He sends his wishes to the Team and hopes Kohli makes the most of this special day.

3rd ODI Between Bangladesh And India Is A Matter Of Pride Than Win: Vaikundarajan

india-vs-bangladeshIndia has lost two matches against Bangladesh in the ongoing test series at Mirpur, Bangladesh. The Indian cricket team is already under pressure owing to their loss in the World Cup semi-finals against Australia. They must play today’s ODI to restore honour more than to win the game, says Vaikundarajan

India is shocked at the performance of the ‘Men In Blue’ at the ongoing test series without neighboring country, Bangladesh, says Vaikundarajan

The Indian cricket team has been low on performance ever since the World Cup 2015. There has been much reason for the country to question their performance or rather the lack of it.

India was hopeful of a triumphant win at the start of the test series. However, within a span of four days India was faced with two losses.

These two losses are more than half of the total losses seen by all Indian cricket teams since the start of the test series play format.

The Indian cricket is definitely going to hear music over their lack of performance. Even Mahendra Singh Dhoni confessed during a media meet that today’s ODI will now have to be played for honour rather than a win.

The probable teams on both sides are

India : Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Dhawal Kulkarni, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ambati Rayudu, Umesh Yadav, Mohit Sharma, Stuart Binny, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni(c/w),

Bangladesh : Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Litton Das(w), Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Sabbir Rahman, Arafat Sunny, Mominul Haque, Jubair Hossain, Nasir Hossain, Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Rony Talukdar
