India vs New Zealand 1st ODI Live Streaming

India vs New Zealand, 1st ODI - Watch Live Telecast of the match on Neo Cricket from 0830 hours India Time.
  • Venue: Nehru Stadium in Guwahati
  • Match Date: Sunday, 28 November 2010
  • Live Telecast: On Neo Cricket as well as Doordarshan
The second leg of New Zealand tour of India 2010 commences tomorrow with the first One Day International match at Guwahati. While India ultimately prevailed in the test series by winning the 3rd Test, can they do it again in the ODIs remains to be seen.

Without any doubt, one can say that New Zealand are more likely to be a threat in the limited overs game than they were in Tests. They don't have enough solid batsmen who can occupy the crease and play long innings - the kind of which test cricket demands. However, it was to their credit that they outplayed themselves and managed two draws. In fact, India should consider itself lucky that they did not lose the 1st test of the series itself. Had Harbhajan Singh not scored that century, India were likely to lose the test. How the rest of the series would then have panned out can only be guessed now.

The Kiwis have a good potential XI for the 1st ODI tomorrow. In Tuffey and Miles they have two experienced pacers, and combined that with the experience of Vettori in the spin department, and you have more than a wonderful combination. Can India match up to them? Or can India go one up on the black caps and win the ODI series too.

A lot of these questions will be answered in the first match tomorrow. So don't miss to watch the live streaming of the 1st ODI tomorrow at Guwahati.

Ashes 2010-11 Prevew

England won the previous Ashes 2-1 in what was a closely fought contest. It was so close that I would even be tempted to say that Australia were actually the more dominant and better side in the last Ashes but were unlucky to finish second best. The English captain Andrew Strauss summed it up beautifully at the end of the historic series when he said this:
" We were very bad, when we were bad. But when we were good, we were good enough."div align="left">

What he was trying to say that they just held on long enough
when it mattered. For instance, the no.11 holding on long enough at the crease to thwart a most expect Aussie victory.
England enter this Ashes 2010-11 in red hot form. But they would be meeting the Aussies in their own backyard. And don't forget that this is going to be the last Ashes for their proud captain Rickey Ponting. He would love to win this one and walk into the sunset.

Sri Lanka vs West Indies 2nd Test Live Streaming

Sri Lanka vs West Indies, 2nd Test Match at Colombo from 23rd November 2010

Current Series Standing: 0-0

Live Telecast Schedule: Watch the 2nd Test Live on Ten Sports from 4:30 am GMT (about 10:00 am local time in Sri Lanka and India). For Live Cricket Streaming, either click on the title link above or use the comments area to post your remarks. Country wise live telecast schedules and tv channel listings are welcome.

After that surprisingly good performance form the visitors in the 1st test, the interest in the Sri Lanka vs West Indies test series has gone up. Not too many were giving the Caribbean team any chance when they arrived on their tour to the island nation. But see how the 1st test panned out!

Often, it is one man who stands up tall and motivates and leads others out of the most morose of situations. When India went to Australia on a tour, everyone remembered that the last time they were there they lost 0-3 and they were being ruled out even before the beginning of the series.

Much against plans, Saurav Ganguly stood up with a fine hundred at Adelaide after India had lost a few wickets in the 1st test. How the rest of the series panned out is now part of history.

Can Gayle's triple century turn out to be that innings for West Indies. The once proud team has been pumelled so often in the recent past that they seem to have lost faith in themselves. Let's hope that this was the motivation that they required.

In the 1st Test, they made the favourite team Sri Lanka follow on. Can they go one better this time, and take the lead?

Live Streaming: India vs New Zealand 2nd Test

India vs New Zealand - 2nd Test at Hyderabad, Day 2: Live Report

>> Watch the Match Live on Neo Cricket from 9:30 am IST. Click here for live cricket streaming of the 2nd Test.

Day 1 of the 2nd Test belonged to New Zealand. After India got a very early breakthrough in the form of Brendon McCullum, the two Kiwi batsmen - Martin Guptill and McIntosh thwarted the Indian bowlers for a long, long time to put the tourists in a strong position in the match. The duo added over a hundred runs partnership for the 2nd wicket.
At the end of the 1st day's play, New Zealand were well placed with the score card reading 258/4.

However, in the first session of play on day 2, Indian bowlers struck back with a vengeance. Zaheer Khan claimed 2 and Bhajji claimed 3 wickets as New Zealand inning folded for the addition of about 100 more runs.

Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir opened the Indian reply. Surprisingly and quite against his character Virender Sehwag has been very careful and watchful. The two have already added 50 runs for the opening stand and look good.

At the moment, India appear to have the slight edge in the 2nd Test. But the balance can tilt soon if New Zealand can deliver a few quick blows.

Live Cricket Streaming: India vs Australia 2nd ODI

India vs Australia, 2nd ODI on 20th October 2010, Host: Vizag, Watch Live Telecast on Neo Cricket from 2:00 pm local time. Click here for >> live cricket streaming.

India won the toss and elected to make first use of the ball. That was a surprising decision from Dhoni on a wicket that has been known to be a run feast in the past. May be the overcast conditions and Duckworth Lewis coming into player may have affected his decision. Because it is definitely better and advantage batting second if duckworth-lewis comes into play.

India will be seeing the debut of two men today - opener Shikhar Dhawan and Ashwin from Chennai. Overall, a very new and young looking Indian team. So no wonder the bookies think that the favourite at the moment is Australia. Not by a huge margin but odds of about 2.15 are being offered on India before the start of the match.

The odds would have been bigger in favour of Australia but for the fact that they too don't have a very settled look about their XI. Clarke is not in the best of form and has been sustained attack from different corners.

Australia will enter the match as slight favourites, but only marginally so. So it should be a close contest between two balanced ODI teams.

Can India win the 2nd Test?

India vs Australia, 2nd Test Match (9th to 13th October 2010)

As things stand at close of play on the penultimate day, you might be tempted to think that India are clear favourites. It looks likely that India will complete another fantastic win and make it 2-0.

Today's glorious win against England in the semi-final of the Commonwealth Games, the 32 golds, the grand finish in the 1st Test - Indian sport is on a never before high at the moment. It would only be apt that India attack tomorrow from the word go, finish the Aussie tail quickly and then let the batsmen complete the task and make it a splendid 2-0. After all when did India beat Australia 2-0 ever before?

India vs Australia 2nd Test Live Cricket Streaming

India vs Australia, 2nd Test Match being played at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. Match Starts Saturday, 9th October 2010. Click here for information on Live Cricket Streaming.

India: Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, Suresh Raina, Cheteshwar Pujara, M.S. Dhoni, Sreesanth, Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan Singh, Pragyan Ojha

Australia: Simon Katich, Shane Watson, Rickey Ponting, Michael Hussey, Michael Clarke, Marcus North, Tim Paine, Mitchell Johnson, Peter George, Nathan Haurtiz, Ben Hilfenhaus

Australia has introduced debutant fast bowler Peter George into their team. He replaced the injured Dougie Bollinger. India has also made two changes to its team. The injured players, VVS Laxman and Ishant Sharma have been left out. Replacing them are Cheteshwar Pujara and Sreesanth respectively.

A tight contest is being expected at Bangalore after the two teams fought a fierce battle in the first match previous week. India lead the series 1-0 right now, but will it finish it like that? This ground has not been a very happy hunting ground for India in the recent past. Dhoni would be hoping to change that fact. Can he do that? Watch the live streaming of the 2nd Test to find out.

Kolkata Knight Riders New Purple Jersey: IPL 2010

The Shahrukh Khan co-owned Kolkata Knight Riders team has not had a very happy time in the two previous editions of the IPL. While they have during both the previous IPLs been the most talked about team, thanks to the star power of SRK and the controversies around Ganguly, their ex-coach John Buchanan and the multiple-captain theory, their performance on the cricket field has not been much to speak about.

Probably that's what has triggered the team management to go for a change of colours. For IPL 2010, the Kolkata Knight Riders are all set to come out in a new colour: PURPLE. Yes, the KKR team have decided to shed their 'gold and black' coloured jerseys and go for 'purple' - probably expecting that the new colour will bring them better luck.

Let's hope that the Purple Knights will do better in IPL 2010. All the best, SRK and Dada!
