By

Sachin Tendulkar should not allow BCCI or N Srinivasan the pleasure of dictating when he retires

By
October 1, 2013, 10:13 am

Records have always been an integral part of Sachin Tendulkar’s glorious career. So much so, that the general perception exists, that the man plays only for records.

By
June 24, 2013, 1:13 pm

If one has to pick a single star in India’s ICC Champions Trophy 2013 campaign, the popular choice could well be the flamboyant Shikhar Dhawan.

By

Indian cricket was in a siege when Mahendra Singh Dhoni arrived in England. The team built a protective wall around itself to insulate itself from the negativity arising out of the spot-fixing and betting issues in the Indian Premier League (IPL).  But adversity brings out the best in champions and India have unmistakably shown that quality thus far in the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy 2013.

We are halfway into the Indian Premier League (IPL) and people are already asking how much longer before the play-offs. For a tournament of its kind, the IPL has yawn-inducing schedules. It spans almost two months on the cricketing calendar; it takes an eternity before the play-offs are decided.
