An avant-garde format


With a lot of different leagues taking the cricketing realm by a storm, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) comes up with another interesting format.

The cricket lovers are going to witness a new 100 ball tournament in the domestic arena of  England, where eight teams will compete in this tournament and are based on cities.

These matches are going to hold a traditional 15 overs followed by a 10 ball over and will be played in both men and women's categories.

The venues to host these matches are as follows:
Lords,
The Oval,
Edgbaston,
Old Trafford,
Ageas Bowl,
Trent Bridge, and
Headingley.

This intriguing tournament is going to commence in the Summer of 2020 and will last for five weeks.

The domestic boards of England are alternating their feelings on this as the ECB stupified the cricketing fraternity with this announcement.

The CEO of ECB Tom Harisson feels that this new format would attract the younger audience and new fans thereby making people come by and watch different formats of this sport.

However, this new tournament is planned to run alongside the T20 blast, Let's see whether T20 blast will be affected by this.

What are your thoughts? Will this move from ECB be a boon to this transcendental sport or will it backfire?

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…

Dhamaka in Delhi

Well well, if you have missed out tonight's encounter between Delhi and Hyderabad, then you have certainly missed out on some serious run feast. Winning the toss and electing to bat first, Delhi has lost couple of early wickets as Sunrisers were again spot on with their line and lengths.

However, their misery wasn't amplified as Pant took up the responsibility and annihilated the Sunrisers bowlers to every nook and corner of the park. Very seldom you find a guy like Maxwell being veiled by his partner's innings; it was the case today when Pant has out shadowed every one until something unprecedented incident took place.

Scoring his maiden century, Pant has smashed all the bowlers of SRH; known for their bowling SRH has turned the tide and chased down 188 like a boss.

At the end of first innings, it certainly looked like an uphill task for the Sunrisers. But what we have witnessed was just scintillating. SRH batsmen were all over the DD bowlers and never let the required r…

WHY AB WHY?

It was about 17:10 in the office and I was working on my PC to meet deadlines. A message popped up from a famous cricket app "Breaking News: AB de Villiers retires from International cricket" Heart missed a beat. A shocker, the man who was expected to play his last International World cup next year has left the cricketing circle. He puzzled the whole fraternity with this announcement.
Who is Ab de Villiers? He is a man known for modesty and simplicity. Did I just say a man? Nope, he is the superman of the Cricketing world. Loved all over the world irrespective of nation, this guy has taken the sport to next level and provided the fans an umpty number of memories to cherish.
No one expected this from him, Did the heartbreak in the Indian Premier League made him take this decision?  He mentioned that "he wants to play all three formats or nothing". 
He also mentioned yesterday morning that how RCB is planning to win the cup next Year. What happened all of a sudden i…
