Rise of the phoenix

We all know this man for 14 years now, and he never failed to impress us throughout this tenure. There were many ups and downs in his career, but he never let that decide his future. When this guy is at the crease there is always a belief in the fans that they are going to prevail.

This guy has been the intensity, strength, and benefactor of the Indian blues for more than a decade now and it seems that he will be for quite more years.

He took the cricketing world by storm and sustained it through his tenure, well, he is not yet retired; but he seemed to have lost his Midas touch lately. Hang on- the Chennai Super Kings are back in the IPL and so does this vintage Mahi mania.

Yes, we are talking about our own ex-Captain of the Indian blues and the present leader of the kings in Yellow- Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

MS Dhoni, the name is enough for the bowlers to step back; however, he was not at his best in the last couple of years. Known for his finishing skills and leadership qualities MS Dhoni has been instrumental for India along with Virat Kohli to see them home in most of the cases.

Striking it big and carrying his team home has been the MSD thing for years now, while he was becoming a bit murky in performing his thing, the comeback of CSK to the IPL has helped his cause and we fans of this great sport are rejoicing watching him play the way he is doing now.

Smacking the maximum number of sixes in this IPL and seconding the longest six chart, Dhoni is making his bat talk more than his critics. With a lot of speculation about him continuing in the Indian blues can now be hushed.

Taking his team through in most of the encounters this IPL, Dhoni is setting up the stage to burn it down with his might and grit. Striking at 160 and thirding the most runs chart, this IPL has been the showcase of vintage Dhoni thus far.

Mahi mar raha hai, mahi mar Raha hai are the chants running through the CSK encounters lately. we are so thrilled to see our captain cool rise his game and entertain us. But, can he continue to do this for the Indian blues is what lingering in every cricket fan's head.

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 …

The Wanderers of the Johannesburg is all set to host this battle of pride vs past.
South Africa's composition

The South-African team has a very good composition and would love to go on with the same playing eleven as the previous test. With Dean and Markram scoring all through the tournament is likely to give them a solid start once again. The only concern would be the form of Hashim Amla and number 6; the experience and the talent Amla brings to the plate is remarkable. The tena…
