No fears, Lee set for T20 event

New Delhi, Jan. 28: Fears over security and an injured elbow notwithstanding, Aussie pacer Brett Lee on Thursday said he would play in the third edition of the Indian Premier League beginning on March 12.

Looking forward to SA challenge, says Badrinath

Jan. 28: One of the longest waits in Indian cricket history could be over. After eleven hard and long seasons of toil on the domestic circuit and two years of being shunted in and out of the national squad, Tamil Nadu’s S. Badrinath is finally on the verge of earning his Test cap. The selection of Badri looked certain with both Rahul Dravid and Yuvraj Singh ruled out due to injury.

Zak the ripper strangles Bangla

altDhaka, Jan. 27: Bangladesh imploded in spectacular fashion to hand India victory by 10 wickets on the fourth morning of the second Test here on Wednesday, Zaheer Khan leading the Indians home with career-best figures that included the last four wickets off just seven deliveries at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium.

Not at my best yet, says Zaheer

Dhaka, Jan. 27: Off the field Zaheer Khan, gives very few hints of the sort of fierceness he is capable of when wearing a cricketer’s whites. He is an amiable sort of fellow, always ready with a smile. Put a ball his hand, however, you had better be prepared to get out of the way in a hurry.

Badri front-runner to replace Dravid

Chennai, Jan. 27: Kris Srikkanth, chairman of selectors, feels the upcoming Test series against South Africa will be a tough assignment for India. The team for the two-Test and three ODI series is to be picked in Mumbai on Thursday and with four players injured during the second Test against Bangladesh, the committee has quite a task on its hand.

‘We paid the price for taking it easy’

Dhaka, Jan. 27: Nonplussed by the speed at which they fell apart to lose the second Test on the fourth afternoon here on Wednesday, Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan later admitted they had not been able to put together a consistent effort with the bat, especially when it counted.

Full credit to bowlers, says Dhoni

Dhaka, Jan. 27: India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni gave credit to his bowlers, pace spearhead Zaheer Khan in particular, for their quick win in the second Test and a 2-0 series sweep at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium here on Wednesday.

Tamim blitzkrieg halts india charge

altDhaka, Jan. 26: Injury-wracked India would have hoped they would not need to bat again in this second Test match, particularly after having run up a sizeable 311-run first innings lead early on the third day at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium here on Tuesday.

Kirsten confirms Dravid fears

Dhaka, Jan. 26: India coach Gary Kirsten is a worried man. With South Africa arriving in a few days for two Test matches, he is keen to field a full strength squad but with Rahul Dravid almost certainly sidelined and doubts persisting over Yuvraj Singh, Kirsten admitted both “would struggle” to make the grade for the first Test at Nagpur from February 6.

Yuvi latest casualty, doubtful for SA series

Dhaka, Jan. 26: With Rahul Dravid sitting out the final three days of this second Test against Bangladesh with a fractured cheekbone and Venkatasai Laxman already having returned home, India received another batting blow with the news that Yuvraj Singh would also take no further part in this game with a torn cartilage in his left wrist.
