India 'A' convincingly take CSA Tri-series title in Pretoria

India 'A' emphatically beat their Australian counterparts by 50 runs to clinch the Tri-series final of the Cricket South Africa (CSA) triangular series at the TUKS Oval in Pretoria on Wednesday. Opting to bat first after winning the toss, India lost two wickets in the first six overs, but the 108-run third-wicket partnership between Shikhar Dhawan (62) and Dinesh Karthik (73) pulled the innings back in India’s favour. But India lost their last five wickets for 14 runs as they recorded the third-lowest total of the tournament.In Australia’s chase, Tim Paine (47) and Hazlewood (30) were the only ones to prosper in the face of some tight bowling from the Indian, especially the quick bowlers, who were able to extract slight extra bounce. Speedster Mohammed Shami (2-30) dealt initial blows, while Shahbaz Nadeem (3-34), Perveez Rasool (1-30) and Suresh Raina (1-33) kept the Aussie batsmen under tight leash. Australia were bowled out for 193 in 46.3 overs, handing India their fifth 'A' tournament victory since the concept was introduced in 1994.

indian cricket team

With 15 to get off the last over, and only one wicket remaining, Dhoni, who was struggling throughout the innings, hit a 6, 4 and a 6 after missing out on the first ball from Shaminda Eranga to take India home. His innings was reminiscent of the one he played at the Wankhede stadium where he struck an unbeaten 91 against Sri Lanka in the World Cup 2011 final. I think I am blessed with a bit of good cricketing sense. I knew I could get 15 runs off the last over, I'm happy that it worked.  - MS Dhoni, when asked by Arun Lal about his penchant for coming good when the chips are down, during the awards ceremony.

The Final

India win by 5 runs in 20-over a side thriller

India added the Champions Trophy to the World Cup they won on home soil in 2011, beating England narrowly by 5 runs in a game that was there for the hosts to win. Chasing a modest 130 for a win, Ravi Bopara (30) and Eoin Morgan (33) had things under control and was going for the kill when Ishant Sharma turned it around with two wickets in two balls, after two wide balls in the 18th over. England finished on 124/8 after James Tredwell missed the last ball of the innings with six required for victory.Earlier Kohli top-scored for India with 43, rescuing the team's innings when it was in danger of unraveling on 66/5 after 13 overs. Dhawan, who went into the final as the tournament's leading scorer with 332 runs in four matches, hit 31 of 24 balls that included a six over third-man against Broad. Man-of-match Jadeja remained unbeaten on a 25-ball 33, before returning to take 2-24.

Reported earlier: England won the toss and elected to field first under wet and cloudy conditions in Edgbaston, Birmingham. India plays with an unchanged side. The final, worth $2 million to the winners and $1 million to the runners-up, will be contested by teams who’ve justified their status as the top-ranked one-day sides in the world.

India to meet England in the final

In the final of the last edition of the Champions Trophy at Birmingham on Sunday, world's top-ranked one-day side India will meet hosts England, a team that has never won a world 50-over event. Even as rain threatens the grand finale, India start favourites - with an 8/11 odds on to win this weekend's final according to the bookmakers. The Men in Blue have won eight of the last ten one-day internationals played against England spanning two one-day series, both in India, 5-0 and 3-2.Merely three survivors - Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina and captain MS Dhoni - remain from the XI who were victors over Sri Lanka in the World Cup final in 2011, but the inexperienced but fearless and aggressive team as a unit is proving to be unstoppable. The Indians have won six matches from six - including two warm-up games - with their young bowlers relishing unfamiliar English conditions and opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan becoming the star of the tournament. India (probable XI): Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (capt & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav.

Indian Team Selection

Injured Dhawan ruled out of 4th Test; Suresh Raina included

India's latest batting sensation Shikhar Dhawan who suffered a hand injury during the Mohali test was on Tuesday ruled out of the fourth and final Test against Australia in Delhi. He will be out of action for six weeks, and Suresh Raina will replace him in the squad. The selection committee had opted for veteran left-handed batsman Gautam Gambhir as the substitute opener, before a blood test showed he was down with jaundice.In the absence of Sehwag, Gambhir and Dhawan, Murali Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane are the only openers in the squad and Rahane, who is yet to play a Test, looks most likely to partner Vijay in Delhi. Suresh Raina, who has played 17 tests, wasn't part of the squad for the four Tests against England and the first three Tests against Australia. India Squad: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Murali Vijay, Suresh Raina, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, Pragyan Ojha, Ishant Sharma, Ashok Dinda, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

After bowling out Australia for 223 in their second innings, India chased down the target of 133 with 15 balls remaining before close of play on the last day of the Mohali test to win the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. This marks the first time that India have won three successive Tests against Australia in a Test series. Of the last Ten Tests played by Australia in India, they have lost eight and drawn the remaining three.Earlier, a defiant 65-minute last-wicket stand between Starc (35) and Xavier Doherty (18) consumed 18.1 overs for 44 runs to ensure the Indians bat well into the mandatory overs. When the final hour started, India required 45 runs from a minimum of 15 overs. With only a few overs to go, Jadeja (8) found the boundary twice after Sachin (21) was run out, and then skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (18) smashed three fours off Mitchell Clarke in a row to finish the innings and win the series.

Indian Team Selection

Sehwag dropped for remaining Tests

India has dropped veteran batsman Virender Sehwag from the Test side for the first time since 2008, possibly ending the reign of one of cricket's most brutal openers. The squad was trimmed to 14 with the selectors deciding against picking a replacement for him. The out of form opener has scored just 27 runs in his three innings (2, 19 and 6) during the ongoing series. At the start of the Australia series, his regular opening partner Gautam Gambhir was also dropped from the Indian test squad, but then hit a century for India A against the touring side.

[Above: Sehwag's tweet after the news broke.]
The hard-hitting 34-year-old has scored 8,586 runs in 104 Tests at an average of 49.34 since his debut in 2001. At his peak he was relentless, twice passing Triple Hundred - 309 in Multan in 2004 against Pakistan and 319 in Chennai against South Africa in 2008. However, he has scored only one century since November 2010 - a 117 against England in 2012. His 219 from 149 balls against West Indies remains a world record score in one-day international cricket. In the absence of Sehwag, Delhi-born left-hander Shikhar Dhawan could get a chance to open the innings with Murali Vijay in the two matches to be played in Mohali (from March 14) and Delhi (from March 22) respectively. India Squad: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, Pragyan Ojha, Ishant Sharma, Ashok Dinda, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Sachin Tendulkar retires from ODIs

Record-breaking India batsman way ahead of the pack

Sachin Tendulkar has announced his retirement from one-day international cricket, bringing an end to the most successful career this format of the game has ever seen. The 'Little Master' made his one-day debut in 1989 and collected 463 caps. He excelled in the 50-over format and became the world's top run-scorer with 18,426 at an average of 44.83, including a record 49 centuries. "I have decided to retire from the one-day format of the game," Tendulkar said in a statement. "I feel blessed to have fulfilled the dream of being part of a World Cup wining Indian team.
"The preparatory process to defend the World Cup in 2015 should begin early and in right earnest. I would like to wish the team all the very best for the future. I am eternally grateful to all my well wishers for their unconditional support and love over the years." His last one-day appearance came back in March against Pakistan, the team against whom he made his debut almost exactly 23 years ago. Tendulkar also took 154 one-day wickets, his best return five for 32 against Australia in 1998.
