Wonderful centuries by Virat Kohli and Gambhir at Eden gardens but still some way to go to get 316 ...

Utterly Shamefull!!! The authorities can not protect the interests of the so called "national sport" and that to in the National Capital. I wonder what blunders are in store for us for the Common wealth games.

Sigh!!!! What a disapointment!!!!

Default Shame Shame !!!

What a shame...
Can't we have a 20-20 game with only spinners bowling, at least something to cheer about for the thousands who have gone to watch it LIVE.
Its a shame for DDCA. They have spent millions on the structure but have forgotten to create a pitch, ever since the renovation the pitch has been a question mark.

The amount of money BCCI makes, they should at least make sure the pitches are playable. small correction deky, Hockey, not cricket is the national sport.

and I agree with you that hockey is the National sport, hence I said, "so called National Sport" and put them in Quotation. Anyways never mind the English grammer, we both agree that whatever is happening with the pitch is a shame

What a test match in Sydney ... Aussies pulled off a victory from no where ... Pakistan did everything correct but while chasing only 176 runs in their 2nd innings got all out for 139 runs ...

Wonderful exhibition of a test match ..

What happened guys no comments in this forum while a lot of cricket is happening all around. I guess every one is bit busy after the year end leaves

Watch out for the SA-ENG test match too ... Its on the way for an interesting final day's play.

India struggling against Bangladesh

First allowing them to make 296/6 in 50 overs and then struggling with 3 wickets down for 131 in 25 overs. Why can't they play consistent cricket?

A great test match at Cape town between England and South Africa. In the end England was able to save the match. A good fighting match till the end.

At last India was able to win the match against the Bangadeshi's. It was looking difficult when they started the chase. But cool as ever Dhoni and improving Kohli helped us to win.

Sri Lanka is having it all easy against Bangladesh. 183 for no loss looking like a cake walk for Lanka with Bangladesh having a soap bar in their hand.

Waiting for the next test match between pak vs aus and SA vs Eng. These days test matches r becoming more exciting then one dayers.

And Sreesanth had to be brought in to hand over the game to SL. 12 runs off 3 balls, and it couldn't have been easier for the SL batsmen.
I'm surprised that characters like Sreesanth are given a second chance to play for the Indian team,when there are numerous other younger players waiting their turn in the domestic circuit.
As always, may the better team win a game, and thats exactly what SL did today. Good job!

What an exciting Ranji Trophy final being played. The young guys from Karnataka have to be commended. They have had so many outright victories in the season and now they are fighting. Great knock by Manish. Hope they win.
