Jadeja and Pujara get bumper pay-hike from BCCI

Test stars Ravindra Jadeja, Cheteshwar Pujara and Murali Vijay were on Wednesday rewarded with Grade A category of the BCCI annual contracts, the amount of which has been doubled to Rs two crore from this season while middle order batsman Suresh Raina failed to figure in the list.

The trio joins Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ajinkya Rahane in the top category of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) contracts. Former skipper Dhoni has retained his place in Grade A despite retiring from Test cricket.


Mitchell Starc believes India is running scared of the Aussies

Aussie pace spearhead Mitchell Starc, now nursing an injury back home, on Wednesday said India are afraid of defeat at the hands of Australia after the first Test debacle in Pune.

India and Australia have won a match each in the four-match series, with one to go in Dharamsala, scheduled to begin on Saturday. The series has not only witnessed some terrific performances but also some controversies. However, Australia have won over many fans and critics alike by performing way above the expectations.


Scotland To Host Zimbabwe for 2 ODIs in June

Scotland will host Zimbabwe in two One Day Internationals at The Grange, Edinburgh this summer as part of an action-packed fortnight of international cricket on home soil.

Following the Intercontinental Cup match with Namibia in Ayr (6th – 9th June) and the two 50 over World Cricket League Championship clashes with the same opponents at The Grange on Sunday 11th and Tuesday 13th June Scotland will head straight in to the two match ODI series with Zimbabwe.


South African coach Domingo: “We know it’s not done yet"

South African coach, Russell Domingo, believes his squad remains a ‘work in progress’ despite the success in the current Test match series against New Zealand.  The Proteas hold a crucial 1-0 lead going into the final match starting at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Saturday, and have identified key areas to tweak as they look to maintain their unbeaten series record in New Zealand.

The bowlers earned full marks following their performance in Wellington, and will take the confidence of performing on any surface into the unknown conditions expected for the final match. An area of concern for the coach has been some of the batting form, which has been inconsistent throughout the series.


Australian Media continues to wage war on Virat Kohli

The on-field antics from cricketers of either side in the ongoing India-Australia series are refusing to die down, with the Australian media on Tuesday comparing home skipper Virat Kohli to US President Donald Trump.

Kohli, who had earlier lashed out at the Australians before falling short of calling them 'cheats' after the second Test in Bengaluru, was held accountable for continual perpetuation of fake news by Australian newspaper 'The Daily Telegraph'.


David Warner: "I couldn't be hitting the ball any better"

Ahead of the fourth and final cricket Test against India, starting on Saturday, out-of-touch Australian opening batsman David Warner on Tuesday said he is striking the ball well and is confident that things will soon turn around for him.

Warner, who has managed only 131 runs in six innings so far in the series, said he will not change his technique and will continue with the same.


Pakistan skipper calls for life-ban on spot-fixers

With the spot-fixing scandal gripping Pakistan cricket once again, this time in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), women's team skipper Sana Mir on Tuesday said those found guilty must not be allowed to represent the country again at any cost.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has provisionally suspended five cricketers - Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Shahzaib Khan, Nasir Jamshed and paceman Mohammad Irfan - on suspicion of alleged spot-fixing in the recently-held PSL T20 tournament.
