Chris Gayle: When Caribbean Calypso meets Punjabi Bhangra

I love the discussions that they have at Cricbuzz. Chris Gayle seems to come up whenever Kings XI Punjab plays. The panel over there kept saying that the main reason Kings XI Punjab bought Chris Gayle was for marketing. I saw Gayle in Goa quite a few years back. He has an aura and confidence… Continue reading Chris Gayle: When Caribbean Calypso meets Punjabi Bhangra

T100

The England and Wales Cricket Board has announced a 100 ball cricket league to start in 2020. I strongly believe that cricket has to evolve so that it can grow. I was initially apprehensive about T20 but today I honestly do believe that it has changed the approach by which test and 50 over cricket… Continue reading T100

IPL18 Match 6: Rajasthan Royals vs. Delhi Daredevils

This match fascinated me. The reason was the Duckworth Lewis Stern method (D/L) came into play. Rajasthan scored 153/5 off 17.5 overs. This equated to Delhi needing 70 runs off six overs. My index showed that the performance of RR was nearly three times better than Delhi. If I am not mistaken the net run… Continue reading IPL18 Match 6: Rajasthan Royals vs. Delhi Daredevils
