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…

En-route English Soil

The only country where he hasn't sparked up to his potential, the only nation where he likes to quench his thirst for runs, the only place where Indian fans would love to see him score big is England and our captain Kohli is all set to begin his county stint with Surrey.

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…

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…
