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.
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.

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?

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.
