Punjabi Bhangra- Entertainment factor KXIP


Ey Bale Bale Ey Bale Bale is what making the Punjabi folks groove their bodies into nowadays and no wonder the credit goes to Ashwin and Rahul. We know Ash for his judicious bowling and now we witness his shrewd way of leading the kings from Punjab, and the le' classical Rahul is showcasing his flair with the bat for the Kings

Starting off the campaign on a winning note, KXIP looked subtle and canny in their thinking and approach. Having had a set back in their second game, KXIP returned all guns blazing in their third as the universe boss set the stage on fire.

Entering the tournament with a point to prove to their fans, KXIP has made their intentions clear this season. Gayle made a comeback into the IPL in their third encounter and the stage was lightened and the entertainment was doubled.

With the return of Gayle, settled middle order and the skillful bowlers the KXIP team looks threatening this season and are likely to be in the contention for the title.

The top order looks formidable with the likes of  Rahul, Gayle, and Karun but the concern would be the veiled middle order as Finch was dismissed twice for a duck and Yuvraj isn't quite at his best and Miller being out of sorts for quite some time now.

However, all this has been completely shadowed by the fantastic opening knocks from one of the richest in this edition- Kl Rahul. Rahul smashed his quickest 50 in their first encounter of this season by scoring 51 of 16 balls and followed it up by a quickfire 47 and 37 in the next games respectively.

The bowling unit looks stable, with the spinners nibbling up for the Kings, Pacers have played their part. All in all, the Kings from Punjab have ticked most of their boxes now and will be looking to round off the middle order and be the strong contenders for this championship title.

Stalwart of England Cricket call it quits!

As we all thought the master blaster's test record is in jeopardy by this English Stalwart, with the run of time this stalwart call it quits from the international Cricket at the age of 33- Still young enough to call it quits. We are now aware of which English player has announced his retirement lately, the reason is simple as we expect it to be so from his nature- which is always down to earth.

Carrying the English opening duties on his shoulder for 12 years and delivering in most of the cases talks about his grit and potential. England's test team without Cook's name is unseen, a record of representing a national team continuously without missing a match is held by our Cook- talks about his strength and fitness.

The legacy was incepted in 2006 when Cook has been handed his debut cap against India at Nagpur by Flintoff, he announced his arrival by scoring a brilliant century in England's second innings, from then he has cooked many innings and has become an unprecede…

Substantial Delhi Daredevils

The team which has seen a lot of ups and downs in terms of their core stability is Delhi Daredevils. With the likes of Sehwag, Gambhir, Nehra, and Mishra, Delhi started off their campaign in 2008 as one of the favorites to win the championship. However, they just fell short of a couple of steps to clinch the title.

To further strengthen the things next year, Delhi signs in Dirk Nannes the quicky from Australia. Under the leadership of Gambhir DD topped the table and yet again dropped short of their maiden championship title.

From 2010 until 2017, Delhi has faced a lot of criticism for not performing up to their standards. Reaching playoffs only once in a span of 8 years is a record that needs to be flushed down the gutter. 2012, was one of their successful seasons among the last eight, thanks to the likes of Kevin Pietersen, Mahela Jayawardena, and Ross Taylor. 

With Delhi having a capricious core, it was all up to the management to establish a steady and a solid core; and they have …

With this news rolling out in the social media many of his fans are gearing up to witness their hero in the county colors. Surrey not only managed to bag the big brand Virat for a month they managed to get him for a nominal value.

While BCCI is skeptical about Surrey managing Virat's image, they agreed to keep the promotions at minimum and focus more on cricket.

Indian skipper will feature in at least six matches starting from June 1st. Both Virat and Alec Stewart (Surrey's director of cricket) expressed their happiness.

Virat says "It has long been an ambition of mine to play county cricket and I am thankful to Alec Stewart and Surrey for allowing me the opportunity to join them during their 2018 se…
