South Africa’s shameful record in T20 again

South Africa has come to play a series against India before the T20 World Cup. Where Temba Bavuma’s team was supposed to shine with bat and ball, they had to fall into shame. They even set the record of losing the first five wickets for the least number of runs in T20.

However, this record was held by the Proteas even before entering the field in the first T20 against India. On December 16, 2007, South Africa lost 5 wickets for just 10 runs against the West Indies. He lost five wickets against India earlier. They lost five wickets after scoring only 9 runs.

South Africa played only 2.3 overs to get these 9 runs after losing five wickets. Arshdeep Singh, Deepak Chahar, the visitors cannot stand in front of the cannon. Renowned batsmen like Quinton de Kock, Temba Bavuma, Riley Russo, David Miller and Tristar Stubbs have returned to the dressing room, becoming failures.

But even after the last Indian Premier League (IPL), South Africa played impeccable cricket on Indian soil. Millers have also won the T20 series by playing brilliant cricket with bat and ball. But after a few months, the Proteas came back to visit India. But there is still a chance to turn around and show their best game in the remaining matches of the series.

Skipper Bavuma, however, said that “India’s tour is going to be tough”. Meanwhile, after winning the series with Australia, Rohit Sharma’s team India is in a very cheerful mood after winning the first match against South Africa. Rohit-Kohli is preparing for the World Cup by correcting the mistakes of the Asia Cup. However, Jadeja and Bumrah have been ruled out due to injury, and there is a concern in the Indian camp.

Rizwan is Pakistan’s run machine

Rizwan is Pakistan's run machine

Pakistan’s batting lineup and batsmen’s failures have recently been the subject of criticism. The poor condition of the middle order day after day, however, deserves criticism. But there is always one exception, Mohammad Rizwan of the top order. He is a threat to the opponent with the bat in almost every match.

Rizwan’s bat has also laughed in this year’s Asia Cup. This wicket-keeper batsman has provided service to the team from the beginning to the tournament’s final. Apart from being the tournament’s top run-scorer, Rizwan topped the ICC T20 rankings for the first time. After that, he is even more irresistible.

Rizwan’s bat has been incredible in the ongoing seven-match T20I series against England at home. Where he played 5 matches and scored half-centuries in 4. He made 68 runs off 46 balls in the first match. In the second match, this batsman also left the field after scoring an unbeaten half-century (88* from 51 balls).

There was a chance to score half-centuries in three consecutive matches. But in the third match of the series, when he returned to the dressing room with just 8 runs off 14 balls, it didn’t happen. But in the fourth innings, he returned to his familiar form. He played an innings of 88 runs off 67 balls. Pakistan won the fifth series match on Wednesday with the bat of Rizwan (63 off 46 balls).

Meanwhile, the form of the Pakistani opener, while an added worry for the opponents in the World Cup, is undoubtedly good news for Pakistan. But there is also criticism about his batting style. As Shoaib Akhtar has raised questions about his batting style in T20. However, the ICC T20 ranking says that he is the best batsman.

Pakistan is desperate to win the upcoming T20 World Cup. In that case, Rizwan can be Pakistan’s trump card.

Jamie Siddons opens up about Sabbir – Miraz opening pair

Jamie Siddons opens up about Sabbir - Miraz opening pair

Before the World Cup, Bangladesh played a two-match T20I series in the United Arab Emirates. Tigers won the series without Shakib-Mushfiqur. Although they had to sweat quite a bit to win. However, Sabbir’s shot impressed Jamie Siddons in the series.

This cricketer of the national team did not get run in the first match of the series. He returned to the dressing room with zero runs. However, in the second match of the series, he scored 12 runs off 9 balls. Get a free hit and use it. Hit a great shot for a six. And this six impressed coach Jamie Siddons. Although the run collection is not high, according to Jamie Siddons, Sabbir has shown his ability in just one shot.

Mehdi Hasan Miraz opened the innings with Sabbir in UAE. Both are new to the opening positions. However, Miraz is utilizing the opportunity. Jamie Siddons was asked about the pair at the end of the series.

Siddons said, “Yes, pleased with the opening. Especially with Miraz. Sabbir is yet to find rhythm at this stage after his return. But in one shot he showed what he can do with the bat. That’s what I want to see more of.”

Siddons said of Miraz, “Miraz’s confidence is great. I’ve seen him do well in Tests and ODIs, I know what he can do. Here he’s been given the license to play more shots in the top order. He’s doing great.”

The Tigers have a tri-nation series ahead of them. There are rumors that the new opening pair may be seen there. Which pair will finally open the innings for Bangladesh in the upcoming T20 World Cup is now the question of crores of rupees.

This time Suryakumar Yadav broke Shikhar Dhawan’s record

This time Suryakumar Yadav broke Shikhar Dhawan's record

This year is only for Suryakumar Yadav. Everything turning into gold with his magical touch. A new day, a new match and as if the Indian batsman is touching the bat as an opportunity to surpass himself. Before taking the field against South Africa, he got the good news of improvement in the ranking and set a new record on the field in the Indian jersey.

Suryakumar left the field with an unbeaten 50 runs off 33 balls in the first T20 against the Proteas, ensuring the team’s victory. And in that he made a personal record. Suryakumar now owns the most runs for India in T20Is in a calendar year, overtaking Shekhar Dhawan.

So far, this record was held by Dhawan who scored 689 runs in 2018 calendar year. This record was snatched by his teammate Suryakumar.

Suryakumar has played 20 matches so far in 2022. He scored 732 runs with the bat at an average of 40.66. Batting at a strike rate of 180.29 seems to explain his recent form.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli, who scored 641 runs in 2016, is number three among the Indians who have scored the most runs in a calendar year in T20. Apart from this, current captain Rohit Sharma is in the fourth place with 590 runs in 2018.

This form of Suryakumar also gives him another good news. In the latest ICC T20 ranking, Suryakumar has improved to number two. Pakistan opener Rizwan is only ahead of him.

Suryakumar is also considered by many to be the ABD Villiers of this era. He is also called the current 360-degree cricketer for playing shots all around. Pakistan’s former cricket legend Wasim Akram has praised him fiercely. According to Akram, Suryakumar Yadav can be India’s betting horse in the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Narine praises Rohit fiercely

Narine praises Rohit fiercely

Andre Russell, Sunil Narine are the peddlers of T20 in world cricket. They play in T20 franchise leagues of different countries to meet the era’s needs. But the surprising news is that these two did not get a place in the team that West Indies announced for the World Cup.

Despite not getting a chance in the World Cup team, star spinner Narine did not react. However, in a recent interview, he was praised for Indian captain Rohit Sharma. Talked about Virat Kohli too.

Narine said, “Rohit is a quality player. There is no doubt about his skills. His batting is mesmerizing. I feel like he is always in rhythm whether he scores runs. I always love watching him play. He has had plenty of success as India captain his IPL record is good. He has a terrific head on his shoulders and he is winning games. ”

India recently won the series against Australia at home. Showing prowess, they also won the first T20 against South Africa. However, Rohit Sharma could not reach the final of this year’s Asia Cup. However, this Caribbean star believes that India will get success relying on Rohit. Narine added, “Rohit is a captain under whose leadership India’s success will come. He is always used to turning around.”

Meanwhile, cricket fans compare India’s two best batsmen Virat Kohli and Rohit at different times. But that comparison is not logical to Narain. He said, ”Comparison of Rohit with Kohli is meaningless in this context. People talk unnecessarily. Who is good or bad is irrelevant to me. Both are very good. Both play in different styles. Both of them sacrificed themselves for the country.”

Narine is not seen in West Indies jersey, but he is a regular face of IPL. He played in Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s Kolkata Knight Riders. Narine last played a Test in West Indies jersey in 2012 against Bangladesh. On the other hand, he last played ODI in 2013 against Pakistan.
