Cricket News sort by India Vs England 1st Test at Ahmedabad - Nov 15-19, 2012

Of late, Indian captain M S Dhoni’s post match comments have become rather entertaining but far from enlightening.

England fought back credibly well in their second innings at Motera, Ahmedabad thanks to their skipper Alastair Cook and wicket-keeper Matt Prior. But, while the comeback allowed them to avoid the ignominy of an innings loss...

India eased to a 9-wicket win in the Ahmedabad Test taking less than an hour after Lunch to wrap up their run chase of 77! The hosts took only 15.3 overs to get to the target..

When Alastair Cook entered the Test scene in 2006, he started with a bang, scoring a fifty and a hundred on debut. It was a wonderful start, yet not many believed the left-hander had it in him to progress too far since he was seen as nothing more than a nudge and push player.

A superb unbroken partnership between Skipper Alastair Cook and Matt Prior defied India all through the post tea session to take the Ahmedabad Test into the final day.

England’s woeful first innings batting performance brings to the surface, once again, their seemingly insurmountable ineptitude against good spin bowling.

England pulled off a tremendous fightback in the final session of Day 3 with its opening batsmen putting on an unbroken century stand. Batting out 38 overs in the final session safely, Skipper Alastair Cook led the way with an unbeaten 74 (from 124 balls with 13 fours).

India’s new batting star in Test Cricket Cheteshwar Pujara says that he loves batting at no.3 as it gives him the challenge to face the new ball.

India are in the driver’s seat of the Ahmedabad Test by the end of the second day’s play with England losing three quick wickets in their first innings already.
