  • Chasing 287 to win, India overhauled the target with 15 balls to spare at decider. Earlier, Steve Smith (131) hit a hundred to lead Australia to 286 for nine. Apart from Smith, who raised his ninth ODI hundred, Marnus Labuschagne (54) also batted well after the visitors opted to bat. India had lost the series-opener in Mumbai before levelling the series in Rajkot.

    The BCCI brass led by Sourav Ganguly has adhered to specifications given in the new constitution where qualification for applying for senior selector's post requires a candidate to play either seven Tests and 30 first-class games or 10 ODIs and 20 first-class matches. The person needs to be retired from all forms of cricket for at least five years.

    At a time when bilateral ODI series are fast losing relevance, the three-match rubber between two top teams could give a fresh lease of life to the format. The high-voltage rivalries that fans enjoy will be back as Rohit Sharma's elegance will be pitted against enforcer David Warner while the Virat Kohli vs Steve Smith duel will resume in earnest.

    Eyeing a return to the Indian senior team, the 20-year-old Shaw struck 22 fours and two sixes during his blazing knock at the Bert Sutcliffe Oval. Shaw's knock will certainly excite the selectors as they pick the squad for the Test series in New Zealand. The first Test will get underway on February 21 at the Basin Reserve in Hamilton.

    Indian captain Virat Kohli won the 'Spirit of Cricket' award for stopping fans from booing Australia's Steve Smith during their World Cup match at the Oval, the ICC said in a statement.

    Chasing 256 for win, Finch (110 not out) and Warner (124 not out) took the Indian bowlers to the cleaners to register the emphatic win with 74 balls to spare and take a 1-0 lead in the series. Earlier, Dhawan scored a fifty before Aussies pulled things back to bowl India out for 255 after being invited to bat. The 2nd ODI will be played in Rajkot on Friday.

    Australia openers David Warner and Aaron Finch both hit centuries to complement their bowlers' inspired display as the touring side handed out a 10-wicket thrashing to India in the opening one-day international on Tuesday.

    He was speaking at the “Wellness at Work” summit organised by Manipal Hospitals in Bengaluru. Dravid said that although significant change is seen in the Indian sports scenario as players and teams talk about stress and other mental health issues, a lot more needs to be done.

    “This partnership is in sync with FanCode’s focus to provide comprehensive sports access to underserved sports fans in India. With this partnership, we are sure to see an increase in the reach and popularity of the league by multiple-fold,” said Yannick Colaco, co-founder, FanCode.

    For someone, who has received bouquets and brickbats in equal measure, the 32-year-old is no longer bothered by criticism. "They (wife and daughter) fill me with love and happiness and I try to stay within that rather than thinking about X, Y or Z making comments about me," Rohit Sharma said. "I have actually passed that age to react to someone talking good or bad things about me.

    "Well, that is a mystery to me and I will have to find it out because most of the players had left by 9 p.m. That announcement (calling off at 9:54 p.m.) was strategic to ensure that the crowd didn't turn unruly. That is the usual protocol that is followed. I have given you the hard facts," Assam Cricket Association (ACA) Secretary Devajit Saikia said.

    Rohit & Rahul are in great form; Dhawan is back among runs. So who should be picked as openers? Kohli and Shashtri need to be diplomatic in selection for the team's sake.
