Kane Williamson wins Sir Richard Hadlee Medal

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson was recognised at the 2017 ANZ New Zealand Cricket Awards function when he was awarded the Sir Richard Hadlee Medal for the second year in a row.

Williamson won the Redpath Cup for first-class batting and was named the ANZ Twenty20 Player of the Year, while his impressive performances across all three formats were contributing factors in receiving the top honour.


Wriddhiman Saha: "This win is more special because it is against Australia"

A day after India captain Virat Kohli said that he and his teammates are no longer friends with Australian cricketers, wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha said that he would have no problem playing under Glenn Maxwell for Kings XI Punjab in the ensuing IPL and will have to abide by the decisions he takes as captain.

"That will be in the IPL. I have to accept the team's (KXIP) decision. What happened is now in the past. The feeling now is very good after winning the series," Saha, who was a member of the Indian team that beat Australia 2-1 in the four-Test series, told reporters here when asked about playing under Maxwell for Kings XI Punjab.


Cricket Australia congratulates team on fantastic tour of India

Cricket Australia has congratulated the Australian men's Test team on its performance during the Tour of India.

The Chairman of Cricket Australia, David Peever, said: "As the team arrives home over the next two days, they will find that all of Australia is immensely proud of their efforts. Some gave them little chance of testing the world's number one team, but instead showed resilience, adaptability and a determination to overcome the difficulties they have experienced in recent years in such conditions.


South Africa win series after rain washes out final day's play

Rain was the winner on the final day of the Standard Bank Proteas’ international season as an abandoned final day of the third Test against New Zealand meant they finished with a draw at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Wednesday.

The result also ensured South Africa won the series 1-0 thanks to their eight-wicket win in the second Test in Wellington, while it ended a dream summer – they won every series – in second place on the ICC rankings, having started it in seventh back in August last year.


Virat Kohli: "This is our best series win so far"

Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who acknowledged Steve Smith's men as his friends before the start of the four-Test series, on Tuesday said the things have changed completely.

Many Australian players, including Smith, were involved in the verbal volleys with Indian team members on the field and as a result Kohli declared that the Australians were no longer his friends.
