In the second quarter final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 India will take on the mighty Australians on 24th March, 2011 at Sardar Vallabhai Patel Stadium, Ahmedabad. The match will be started at 2:30 pm IST.

India ended second in the points table in Group B after a comfortable win against West Indies on Sunday in the last match of group stage. Australia finished third in the points table of Group B after losing to Pakistan and ending up their record of 34 consecutive match wins in World Cups. India will have to keen in mind that the Australian pace attack with Brett Lee, Johnson, Tait and their toughness in the field can cause trouble to them in any situation. Comparing to the Australians, the Indian performance is a bit weak and need to improve to match the Aussies. If we compare the batting line-up then certainly Indians will be on the upper side as their strong batting line up which is their main strength can destroy any opposition at any situation. With the improvement in form …

India vs West Indies | Chennai

The 42nd match, last match in the group stage of ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 will be played between India and West Indies at M.A.Chidambaram stadium in Chennai. Both the teams look to win the match as it important for both of them to win, gain some points and improve their net run rate to go confidently into the quarter finals.

India have to improve their batting in the five overs of the batting power play and avoid losing of quick wickets particularly in these overs as they have already done in the matches against England and South Africa where one match resulted in a tie and the other resulted in a loss. There should be improvement in their bowling and fielding performances if they want to win tomorrow and make a confident entry in to the quarter finals. On the other hand, West Indies despite of good efforts in the match against England the other day lost to them allowing England to make way into the quarter finals. Gayle, Pollard and Bravo will be the key players to look for West In…

Super Moon To Be Closest To Earth on March 19

What is a Super Moon?

Super Moon is the phenomenon that occurs when the moon will reach very closer i.e., 90% of its degree closest to the planet Earth. This phenomenon occurs for every 18 years and this is going to repeat this year on March 19. Normally the distance between Earth and the moon is 3,84,440 km but on this Super Moon day it may be around 3,57,000 km distance.

Don't Worry!

Astrologers on the Super Moon have predicted that Super Moon may cause disasters in many parts of the world like tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, floods etc. They have also linked to yesterday’s Tsunami and earthquake effect in Japan, which was measured as 8.9-magnitude on the vector scale. But scientists are opposing the astrologer’s prediction saying that there is no link between the Super Moon and earthquakes as the moon effects can cause only ocean tides to run higher than the tides on a normal day. NASA supported the scientists confirming that there is no co-relation between the Super Mo…

India vs South Africa, Nagpur

The match is scheduled to start at 2:30 local time and 9:00 GMT.

India is with lot of confidence as they are the only team to remain unbeaten till now in the tournament in group B. But India has to work on their bowling and fielding as they are on a lower side in both the aspects compared to South Africa. South Africa has attacking bowling and fielding supporting their bowlers. Imran Tahir, the leg-spinner for South Africa who has been one among the leading wicket takers in the tournament so far, has injured his thumb while attempting to take a return catch to dismiss England batsman Trott. As a result of this injury he might be given rest and may not be available for the big ma…

Tendulkar Completes 2000 Runs in World Cup

Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar today reached another new record by becoming the first player to reach 2000 runs in the history of Cricket World Cup. He reached this milestone in the India vs Netherlands match at Ferozshah Kotla stadium in New Delhi. He reached there by smashing a boundary of Ryan Doeschate’s bowling. Ricky Ponting is the only player following the master with 1577 runs. The little master also holds the record for scoring five centuries and 13 half centuries in World Cup history. Playing in his sixth World Cup Sachin also equaled Javed Miandad’s record for more number of appearances in a World Cup.

England Beat South Africa in a Thriller

In a thrilling encounter between England and South Africa, England won against South Africa by only 6 runs at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. It was England who won the toss and set to bat. A good early spell from Peterson left England at 15 for 3, Bopara and Trott were the two batsmen for England who helped to take the score board to at least 171 where it looked to be a easy target for the South Africans to chase on. Peterson and Tahir were the pick of the bowlers for South Africa.


South Africa with their experienced openers Hashim Amla and Smith started very well and gave a thought that it would be a very comfortable win for them. But with a fight back performance from the England bowlers, South Africa got into trouble by losing wickets in quick sessions. Stuart Broad was the bowler who really had done damage to the South African tail end and won the match for England in this thrilling match. England won the match with 6 runs and Ravi Bopara was awarded the Man of the Match for 60…

India Beat Ireland with All-round Performance fom Yuvraj Singh

India leads the points table with a comfortable win against Ireland at Bangalore. In this interesting match it is India who won the toss and elected to field. Ireland, who stunned England by putting up a fighting performance, got into bat with its openers Porterfield and Stirling. Zaheer Khan was the new ball bowler for India and started off well by providing the early break though that India needed in the first over itself with a rocking delivery to dismiss Stirling. Joyce joined Poterfield at the crease but he too became a victim of Zaheer Khan in the next over that Zaheer bowled. Porterfiled and N O’Brien were the two batsmen who built up the innings for Ireland and got them into a good position. But with an excellent piece of work from Kohli and Dhoni, Neil O’ Brien got run out for 46 runs missing out on a half century. White was the next to come into the crease after the dismissal of N O’ Brien and started his innings well but soon became a victim of Yuvraj Singh. Meanwhile Porte…

11 Feet World Cup Made With 5000 Flowers

India vs Ireland, Bengaluru

India will take on Ireland in the 22nd match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 on 6th March, 2011 this Sunday in M.Chinnaswamy stadium at Bangalore. The match will be very interesting for one to watch as both the teams will look to play their best. India entered the tournament as the favorites but is not up to the mark with their poor bowling and fielding performances though their batting is been consistent. The Men in Blue are able to score over 300 runs in both the matches that they played against Bangladesh and England but with their somewhat weak bowling they dragged on the matches till the end where Bangladesh looked like they can easily chase the target of 370 at one stage but with as they lost their wickets India won that match with 87 runs. The match with England on the other day came to a stage where England were the favorites and would have won that match but Zaheer Khan's fighting bowling spell helped India to tie the match and share points with England.
