IPL 2019 final – Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians meet for the 4th time in the title clash

After 50 days of entertaining IPL season 2019, the time has come for the final thriller. Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings!

IPL 12th edition couldn’t have had a bigger title clash than this. Both CSK and MI has 3 IPL titles on their crown and also the most successful franchises in the tournament. The winner of IPL 2019 will get prize money of INR 20 crore and the runner-up will get prize money of INR 12.5 crore.

Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Lasith Malinga, Ishan Kishan, Quinton de Kock, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Mitchell McClenaghan

CSK Probable XI:

Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Murali Vijay, Ravindra Jadeja

CSK and MI will meet today for the 4th time in the title clash in IPL tournament. Winner of IPL 2019 final will have its first 4-time title winner crown after today’s final in Hyderabad. 

Mumbai Indians beat Chennai Super Kings 3 times in this season. At the same time, none of the team has beaten Dhoni’s men more than 3 times in any IPL seasons so far.

Mumbai Indians is certainly are favorites as they have beaten CSK thrice in IPL 2019. They are the only side in the league’s history to have dominated MS Dhoni’s men by winning 16 of the 11 head to head meetings. Most importantly, Rohit Sharma as a captain of Mumbai Indians has never lost an IPL final. He led Mumbai Indians to titles in 2013, 2015 and 2017. Mumbai Indians certainly have outclassed Chennai Super Kings so far.

Dhoni’s phenomenal form and with game changers Imran Tahir and Harbhajan Singh, CSK still considered as the favorites for the final game. CSK is popular for proving their haters wrong and they could do it once again in this tournament when they take on MI in the IPL 2019 Final at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad.

Indian Cricket Team for ICC Cricket World Cup 2019

BCCI on 15th of April announced the Virat Kohli-led 15 member Indian Cricket Team for Cricket World Cup 2019. ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 this year will be held in England & Wales from May 30 to July 14.

In 2008, Virat Kohli led Indian Cricket Team won the Under-19 World Cup victory. Nine years later he will lead the senior Indian Cricket Team in World Cup for the 1st time. KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik, Vijay Shankar, and also Ravindra Jadeja got a place in the Indian Squad for World Cup 2019. Ambati Rayudu and Rishabh Pant miss being part of this squad flying to England & Wales.

This world cup series will also be the 4th World Cup featuring MS Dhoni. Dhoni for the first time in all the T20 & 50-over World Cups in his career will be playing not as a captain.

The chief of Selectors of The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) MSK Prasad named the below 15-man Indian National Cricket Team addressing the reporters on 15th of April 2019.

Here Indian Cricket Team flying to England for ICC Cricket World Cup 2019:

BATSMEN: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (C)

WICKET-KEEPER: MS Dhoni, Dinesh Karthik, Lokesh Rahul

BOWLER: Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar

There seems to be a hot and long debate over selection of back-up wicket-keeper’s spot. The BCCI selectors at the end went ahead with the Dinesh Karthik experience and also for his wicket keeping skills over the exuberance of youth of Pant. Karthik is the much better option in that aspect.

India will start their world cup campaign in Southampton on 5th June against South Africa. QatarIndians team on behalf of all the Indians living in Qatar wishes the Men in Blue to bring the World Cup to India for the 3rd time.

Indian test cricket team won a historic first-ever series in Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Monday. It was a 71-year wait to script a golden chapter in Indian Cricket History. First time by an Asian country against Australia in Australia.

Virat Kohli’s Team India was already the number one Test Team in the world before this Australia test series. Virat Kohli called this historic win as the biggest achievement of his cricket career. Cheteshwar Pujara declared the Man of the Series for his 521 runs which helped to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

Virat Kohli’s Team India first to win an ODI series in SA

Virat Kohli’s Team India first to win an ODI series in SA

After over 25 years of touring South Africa, an Indian cricket team has managed to beat South Africa in an ODI series. It is no surprise that the team to do so is currently ranked No 1 in ODIs, or that its captain is the talismanic Virat Kohli who has batted on a different level in the ongoing six-match series, which India wrapped up on Tuesday against a depleted and spin-weary home team.

After victories in Durban (by six wickets), Centurion (by nine wickets) and Cape Town (by 124 runs), India were beaten on Saturday in a rain-hit fourth ODI, but stormed back to claim the series with a 73-run victory over South Africa at Port Elizabeth.

Kohli thus became the first Indian captain to win an ODI series in South Africa. His contributions have been exemplary – 429 runs in five innings, with two centuries and a half-century. Leading the bowling and totally flummoxing South Africa’s batsmen in four of five matches have been the wrist-spinning pair of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal with 16 and 14 wickets respectively.

India’s long-awaited ODI series triumph on South African soil came after six tours, dating back to 1992. That first series in South Africa was won by the hosts 5-2. Successive tours in 1996-97 (0-4), 2000-01 (a triangular series also featuring Kenya, where India were beaten in the final), 2006-07 (0-4) and 2013-14 (0-2) all ended in disappointment. In 2003, a team led by Sourav Ganguly had marched into the final of the ICC World Cup, where it was hammered by an all-conquering Australian outfit under Ricky Ponting. During the 2009 Champions Trophy, MS Dhoni’s team was eliminated before the knock-out stage.

India’s success has handed South Africa just their seventh bilateral ODI series defeat at home. Barring six defeats and one 4-4 scoreline, the previous 42 such series have all been won by South Africa. That is a staggering record to have at home, and one South Africa can be very proud of. They have been beaten by the top-ranked team in ODIs, and one that has taken big strides towards improving their record away from Asia. Chahal and Kuldeep have been consistently attacking.

This current team, ranked second in ODIs, have been hit hard by injuries to their captain Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers and Quinton de Kock. In the first game, du Plessis carried the home team with a fine 120 before he was ruled out of the series with a fractured finger. The wicketkeeper-batsman de Kock followed after suffering a left wrist injury during the second ODI, while de Villiers only returned to the lineup for the fourth ODI having recovered from a finger injury.

And with Hashim Amla enduring a lean series – just one fifty in five games – the home team has been left with very little batting power.

What has been stunning to witness is the regularity with which South Africa’s batsmen have struggled to pick Chahal and Kuldeep’s deliveries. The 27-year-old Chahal has enjoyed a stunning run of success, taking 2/45, a career-best 5/22, 4/46, 1/68 and now 2/43.

With the dismissal of David Miller, Chahal has surpassed former West Indies allrounder Keith Arthurton’s mark of 12 wickets taken across seven ODIs during the 1998-99 season as the most by an overseas spinner in a series in South Africa. However, Kuldeep bettered Chahal’s record in the same match with his match-winning haul of 4/57.

India Win ICC U19 World Cup Title For The Record Fourth Time

India Win ICC Under 19 World Cup Title For The Record Fourth Time

QatarIndians.com wishes U-19 Indian team for this great achievement on behalf of all the Indians living in Qatar.

India are World Champions, for a fourth time (2000, 2008, 2012 and now 2018). They beat Australia by eight wickets to lift the Under-19 World Cup.

India pulled off a sensational eight-wicket win over Australia in the big final of the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup to become the only side in history to lift the coveted title for a record fourth time. A clinical bowling performance by India saw them restrict Australia to 216, a total that Prithvi Shaw and his men gunned down comfortably in the end to etch their name in history books.

The platform for the big win was laid by, first, the bowlers, who staged a terrific comeback to remove the last six Australian wickets for just 33 runs, and later by opener Manjot Kalra, who struck a 101-ball century to lead India to victory. Kalra got vital partnerships going with each batsman he batted with – 71 with Shaw, 60 with Shubman Gill and an unbeaten 89 with Harvik Desai and formed the fulcrum around which the chase revolved.
