gautam gambhir batting
Gautam Gambhir has announced the retirement from all form of cricket yesterday. Ranji trophy game against Andhra Pradesh at his home ground Firoz Shah Kotla stadium will be the last game of his cricketing career. 

Gautam announced his retirement from his Facebook official by posting an emotional video. In these 11 minutes video, he thanked his family, teammates, all coaches especially Justin langer, and at the least his supporters. He also thanked the bowlers who ran long to make him a great batsman. 

In Next life too, he desired to represent Indian cricket with more number of wins, more numbers of hundreds and also some of the five-wicket hauls.

Gautam Gambhir played 243 matches for India scored 10324 runs with 20 hundred and 63 fifties. Gautam captained Indian ODI side for 6 matches and he wins all these 6 included clean sweep to New Zealand. He wins the IPL trophy 2 times as Captain of KKR. 

Really a fan of Gautam Gambhir I thought he deserves more chances to play for India. But due to some of the internal issues may he left the opportunity of playing for India for a longer period of time.

75 runs in world t20 final against Pakistan in 2007, fabulous match saving 137 runs in 436 balls at Nepiar in Test against New Zealand in New Zealand and classy 97 runs in world cup 2011 against Sri Lanka will forever remain in the memory of every Indian cricket fan.

Gautam Gambhir played his best of cricket during the years 2009 to 2011. In 2009 Gautam nominated as ICC Test player of the year. In the era of legends like Sachin, Dravid, Ganguly, VVS Lakshman and Sehwag managed his class equally in these quality batting lineups. With Gambhir's retirement golden era of Indian batting has been ended yesterday.

I hope Delhi Ranji team will give a great send off to great servant of Indian cricket with a big win against Andhra Pradesh and he will also finish his cricketing career with mighty hundred or even more.

Wishing Gautam Gambhir a healthy and prosperous post Retirement life from Team RallyRave.

harmanpreet kaur and ramesh powar

After retiring from cricket three years ago, a discussion started in the middle of the cricketing career of Ramesh Powar. Ramesh Powar continues to be involved in various news stories, till the Indian women's coach, after he resigned as spin bowling coach from the Mumbai Cricket Association Academy.

The head of the administrative committee, Vinod Rai wrote the letter written by Harmanpreet and Smriti. In this, he said that Harmanpreet and Smriti should be trained as Powar by 2021. Powar's contract with Indian women's cricket team has ended on November 30. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has invited fresh applications for the post, Powar can be re-applied for this. In this regard, written by Harmanpreet and Smriti has shown support to Powar. On the other hand, Mithali Raj's Ekta Bisht and Manasi Joshi have opposed to Powar.

In the mail sent by Harmanpreet, good tuning has been gathered with Indian coach Ramesh Powar. So they should not be removed from the post. Also, the decision to exclude Mithali Raj from the semi-finals was not only Ramesh Powar but he had decided to complete the team management, Harmanpreet said in the mail.

Harmanpreet may be able to settle disputes between Ramesh Powar and Mitali Raj on a table in his mail. This will help the team to get the stability. It is expressed in the opinion. But Harmanpreet and Smriti did not mention the need for Mithali Raj's experience.

Prithvi Shaw

Today whole Indian cricket fans take a bed with a lot of pride and prosperity cause they have got another Sachin Tendulkar at Motera stadium Rajkot. sachin Tendulkar's elegance and Virendra Sehwag's fearless attack brought together in Prithvi Shaw. The18-year-old young Prithvi Shaw smashes classical Hundred on debut. He managed to score 134 runs in 154 balls with the help of 19 fours. Now Shaw becomes the only player to hits hundred on debut in International cricket, Ranji trophy, and  Duleep trophy.

After Captaining the champion u19 team, he scored  1418 runs in 14 matches in a first-class career with 7hundreds. He made his IPL debut this year for Delhi Daredevils and scored 245 runs in 9 matches with a healthy strike rate of 153.12 with the highest score of 65 against KKR. The successful performance in England for India A gave him chance to represent the Indian side in Test cricket.

Prithvi Shaw has extraordinary talent his hard work and dedication makes him very special cricketer. His cover drive reminds the old Sachin Tendulkar. He punches the ball which stops after hitting the boundary ropes.

Prithvi Shaw

I think Team selection committee had taken a great call by giving the chance to Prithvi Shaw. As we see the great players like Sachin, Dravid, gangly and Virat made their debuts in the early period of their cricketing career. This helps to improve their skills and temperament and such qualities make them great players. Definitely, Prithvi will gonna join these list in upcoming years.

In ongoing test series, Bolling attack of windies is poor few of the bowlers are inexperienced. But Prithvi Shaw will be going to be tested in the upcoming tour of Australia. Bouncy pitches and high-quality pacers definitely try to irritating  Prithvi Shaw. If Shaw can do better in Australia he might have a chance to be the great player in Indian cricket history.

After watching a classy inning of Prithvi Shaw one though it comes into mind that "Prithvi Shaw will have a chance to become the next big thing in Indian cricket.

Best wishes to Prithvi shaw for upcoming test series against Australia and his bright future from team RallyRave.

"15,000 Test runs and 50 Test centuries are not beyond him" once Sunil Gavaskar said about legendary test batsman Alister cook who recently announced his retirement from international cricket. He scored 12472 runs in 161 test matches with the 33 centuries and 57 half centuries  Retirement of Alastair cook will increase the headache of England cricket board and team selection members.

alastair cook retirement

In August 2012 former captain Andrew Strauss left out English team. After right through his retirement and till now England searching for his replacement. From the last 6 years, they even failed to replace Andrew Strauss. From 2012 English team management tried 11 opening batsman as a partner of  Alastair cook but still, no one can make their mark on the opening slot. They tried Nick Compton in 2012- 13 and in 2016, Michael Carberry played 6 test as opener unfortunately 5 of those against Australia in Ashes 2013 where Michel  Johnson and Ryan Harris was on fire. Sam Robson, Alex Hales, Ben Duckett, Haseeb handed are the some of the other players who open with Alastair Cook. Now after test series against India English team management must have to find out the replacement for Alastair Cook as well.

alastair cook retirement

Frankly, from last one and half year cook was looking out of form. He was passed through a lot of criticisms. But I think it is not the right time to take retirement; performance in last test match will arise the question 'may cook can play for another 2 years at least?' England cricket team already has issues in middle order.  Now the absence of Alastair cook will become a nasty problem for England.

In his last test match, Cook scored a classy hundred and entertained his fans for last time. He hits 147 runs in 286 balls with 14 boundaries. This inning of cook literally feels that is it too early to say goodbye to English cricket team.

alastair cook retirement

Alastair cook blessed with great technique, extraordinary temperament, and patience. Cook is the highest run scorer for england in Test cricket. It is never easy being a successful test opener in a country like England. In  English seaming condition where ball swings in both sides, it requires quality technique to survive, as test opener this makes cook as the 5th highest scorer in world cricket.

Surely cricket will gonna miss you Alastair cook. Best wishes to the great master chef for his rest of life from team RallyRave.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee was India's one of the greatest prime minister. They laid the foundation of good governance and taking good decisions throughout his PM career. Vajpayee ji had a great connection with cricket as well he was always in favor of bilateral series between India and Pakistan.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee cricket

Indian cricket team had not been visited Pakistan since 1989 to play test cricket, in the same series Sachin Tendulkar made his international debut. In 1997 India went to Pakistan to play only ODI cricket. 

In 2004 Indian tour of Pakistan has been planned according to ICC Schedule. But at the same time, the political relation between India and Pakistan was very poor. In 2004 Pervez Musharraf was Prime minister of Pakistan thus Indian government opposed the tour of Pakistan. At that time Lal Krishna was the Home Minister of India, LK Advani was too much against the tour by concerned with the security of Indian players and media.

But Atal Bihari Vajpayee thinks different on Pakistan tour. He was the person who strongly believes that cricket is the only media which helps to improve the relationship between India and Pakistan. The tour which is nearly canceled that he makes possible. Vajpayee ji convinced LK Advani and home ministry of India then asked to BCCI about their interest for Pakistan tour and he successfully convinced his government and arranged the tour.

At the time Indian team takes off to Pakistan from Delhi airport, Vajpayee ji arranged a program and gave best wishes with the great message by writing on the bat; he writes in Hindi " Khel hi Nahi dil bhi jitihe! Shubhkamnaye " 

This was the tour where Virendra Sehwag become 'Sultan of Multan'. Viru hits 309 runs in 375 balls with 39 fours and 6 sixes. Indian captain Rahul Dravid made his highest score of his test career 270 runs with the help of 34 fours and only six. It was the first time where India won both Test and ODI series.

Vajpayee ji was the only Indian prime minister who interferes in cricket and gives such wonderful opportunity to Indian players and Indian fans to celebrate the great victory.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee who served himself for Nation. Team RallyRave condolences his family, may his soul rest in peace.

Indian cricket team now suffering from a lot of criticisms due to poor performance in ongoing test series. India lost the Lord's test by an inning and 159 runs. Lack of preparation, poor team selection, and toss result are the main reasons behind the big defeat.

Indian batsmen are going through their most miserable form. In both innings, openers were failed to give a big start. Murali Vijay and KL Rahul both look uncomfortable against English seamers, especially against James Anderson. Ajinkya rahane looks good, in both inning, he middled the ball well but can't able to convert into a big score. It(third test) could be the last chance for Ajinkya rahane to prove himself. Comeback boy Pujara also struggling to hide the gap between bat and pad.

Indian cricket team

Virat also failed to repeat the same that he does into the first test. Yes, it is difficult to perform in England in cloudy weather but they all had enough experience to handle such situations. But in the end, it happens when you visit the countries outside subcontinent no matter how much stronger you are.

One and only positive aspect in these test series is Indian bowling. Without Bhuvi and Bumrah they bowled brilliantly. Bowlers were felt unlucky on the third day of a test match, they can't get enough help from the weather which England got on the 2nd day of a test match. In bright and sunny atmosphere English batters make it count and set  288 runs lead against India.

Right now all the things going against team India. As a fan of Indian cricket, it was hard to digest but it needs to accept. You can't cross the boundary line every time. Even when Australia at their peak time they failed to win in England. Now it's our responsibility to support our team.

As a hard fan of Indian cricket believe on Virat and co and keep calm and support team India.

Every cricket experts and most of the ex-cricketers repeated that Virat Kohli is the key player in upcoming test series against England. Really no doubt about their judgment but only Virat can't win the test series for India; definitely other batsmen need to take responsibility and someone like Ajinkya Rahane is the best candidate to take the load on his shoulder.  The Indian test team vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane who is the backbone of Indian batting lineup whenever India visiting countries outside the subcontinent. Ajinkya also eager to roar and back in his classy touch.

Ajinkya Rahane on mice

Ajinkya Rahane's performance will be vital to India's success on England soil. Indians need to post 400+ runs on the scoreboard to put pressure on England and win the every single test match and only Virat can't manage those 400-500 runs.

Ajinkya is going through a most miserable patch in his six-year international career. Last test series against Sri Lanka he scored only 17 runs in 5 innings he played due to bad form against Lanka he dropped from playing 11 against South Africa in first 2 test matches but in the last match, he hits a match-winning 48 runs in tough condition. Recently against Afghanistan who played Thier first ever test match where India registered the biggest win in Indian test history by an inning and 262 runs but here as well the Captain Ajinkya Rahane only manage to get 10 runs .but now is the time to bounce back stronger, he scored 48 and 49 runs for India A in both innings against England Lions.

India's last tour of England of 5 test match series where India won an only single test match at lords and here Ajinkya smashes quality hundred with 103 runs on a green seaming track. Ajinkya Rahane played best of his cricket on bouncy and seaming conditions. He really wants to repeat his quality punch again in upcoming England series.

Ajinkya Rahane seating on the ground

England selectors added 2 quality spinners for the 1st test match against India. The whole of England is now suffering by heat this summer, due to high temperature, England pitches behave like Indian pitches. they definitely got a turn from the 3rd day of the test match and Ajinkya is struggling a lot against spin these days. There are lots of negatives which he wants to improve in England test series and make grand test series for him.

I personally feel that Ajinkya Rahane is going to rock in upcoming England test series.

Very best wishes to Ajinkya Rahane from team RallyRave.

England's fortune will depend upon how they handle India's "spin twin"

No doubt about England's supreme form in ODI cricket. They trash Australia by 5-0 in last ODI series. But here against India challenge could be different. India having two quality wrist spinners whose quite difficult to read. Chahal and Kuldeep have been doing fabulous work for India since last two years not only in subcontinent also in outside Asia as well. Kuldeep took 5 wickets by considering 24 runs in the 1st T20 where India finished the game with 8 wickets in the bank.

india cricket batting odi

England top order enjoying their golden days throughout the Scotland series they set every single game for their side. But in ongoing ODI series, England's middle order will be going to test. Jo root is off from his classy touch and he can't get a chance to play at no.3. Definitely to celebrate ODI win over in-form India the role of the middle order will be important obviously Root, Morgan, Buttler, and Stokes having a lot of experience to play spin; they played great knocks in India as well. Meanwhile, Buttler, Stokes, and Morgan have been playing IPL from over the years so fans will definitely look toward to handle India's spin twin.

Indian spin bowlers kuldeep chahal

England must have Thier plans for Kuldeep and Chahal they practice with Merlyn machine to understand the wrist spinners. England batsmen would look to play both for 4 or 5 runs per over without throwing more wickets and with wickets in hand in last 10 overs, they have an ability to hits maximum runs. In the absence of Jaspreet Bumrah, Indian bowling line looks weaker and swing master Bhuvneshwar Kumar recently suffering from his form. If England batsmen can manage the "spin twin" they might a have great chance to win the series against a top side in ICC ranking.

Sourav Ganguly is the former captain of Indian cricket team and now working as president of Cricket Association of Bengal. Sourav Ganguly is also known as "DADA" He is the most aggressive captain of India who leads India in world cup 2003 where India finished the tournament as runner-up. He makes test debut against England on 20th June 1996 with a classy hundred and makes ODI debut against Australia in January 1992. During his bright international career, he makes a remark as a greatest left-handed batsman and greatest captain of national cricket side. World cricket has known him as a "God of offside" for his amazing strokeplay square of the wicket and in the covers.

Rahul Sharad Dravid one of the finest player in Indian cricketing history! Recently ICC honored Rahul Dravid by including into ICC Hall Of Fame for his work for cricket. But It is really enough? absolutely not. Rahul Dravid means a lot for during the period of his career. He played as top order batsmen, he played in middle order, he finished the game for India, keeping wickets, part-time off Spiner and at the least great fielder. What a player he was. But one thing jarred the most can he get the credit what he deserves? 

Rahul Dravid profesional, rahul dravid with mic, rahul dravid smile

Now he works as head coach of India U19 and India A team. Recently India U19 won the world cup. India A doesn't lose a single ODI series since 2013. He has been doing a great job for Indian cricket.

Once when Harsha Bhogale was asked to Rahul Dravid about his great innings, he always reminiscences his partner and said to Harsha Bhogale "he also played great to". 

Recently after the U19 world cup, BCCI announced money prize for player and coaching staff but He gets nervous cause he got more prize than others he reduces his prize from 50 lac to 25 lac for his support staff.
Last year Bangalore University honored his cricketing career by giving doctorate degree. But this man refused the doctorate with great humility cause he wanted to earn the same by researching in sports.

Another exciting thing in his life is, He is far away from social media. He can't use Twitter, Facebook and Instagram still he has lots of fan followers.
