The IPL 2013 was widely considered to be a success for the sheer quality of cricket it produced to go with the huge crowds at all venues throughout the competition and the record numbers of viewers on television and online.

There were records broken in all three departments of the T20 game and some great innings, bowling spells and catches which stood out at the end of the competition.

india celebrateIndia have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in their four match series with Australia, beating the hosts comprehensively by an innings and 135 runs in the second Test at Hyderabad with 5 sessions to spare. Australia came into Day 4 at 74-2, 192 runs behind India from their first innings, and suffered a dramatic collapse in the morning session, losing 8 wickets for just 57 runs with Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin doing the bulk of the damage.

zaheer_khanAfter losing back-to-back test matches at home for the first time in a decade, the All-India Selection Committee has made a few changes to their squad for the fourth and final test of their series against England. The selectors have opted to axe Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan and Yuvraj Singh from the 15-man squad, but have decided to stick on with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and a host of other non-performers in the team that lost the Kolkata Test earlier today.

Zaheer Khan may consider himself a tad unfortunate to have been made a scapegoat, with most pundits still believing the ageing left-arm seamer to be India's best medium pacer in this format of the game. The veteran bowler has been replaced in the squad by the uncapped Parvinder Awana, with Umesh Yadav continuing to miss out due to injury. Ishant Sharma, who made his comeback into test cricket earlier this week after an 11 month absence, failed to impress either, and it will be interesting to see if he keeps his place in the playing eleven come Nagpur.
