IPL 2012 : News

We have lacked the killer instinct

It was an amazing feeling to be at the Eden on Saturday. The Eden is the best cricket ground in the world where the knowledgeable crowd gives you due recognition, and it lived up to its reputation once more. No wonder, cricketers the world over crave to play here at least once. Sourav Ganguly writes.

Viru and Warner have a lot in common

Against the Knight Riders, Sehwag and Warner were reunited as openers. The two belong to the see-ball-hit-shot school of batting and are not known to waste time at the crease. Amrit Mathur writes.

Cap during transfer window needed

Kings XI skipper Adam Gilchrist thinks the IPL is becoming a league of 'haves' and 'have-nots'. Aakash Chopra writes.

Win against the Royals will help us get our season back on track

We came so close against the Mumbai Indians but the manner in which we lost was heartbreaking. Stephen Fleming writes.

RR and Kings XI have played fearless cricket

This uncertain nature has been the biggest draw of the tournament and I am sure the cricket-loving public all over the world is lapping up every bit of it. Sourav Ganguly writes.

Gayle's approach is simply amazing

He has this unique style of batting - patting down deliveries in the first few overs before launching himself later. Mark Waugh writes.

Once a spinner, the bat is now White's weapon

Playing for the Deccan Chargers for the second consecutive year - he had donned Royal Challengers colours from 2008-2010 - White has been the only bright spot for the Hyderabad team. Sharmistha Chaudhuri reports.

Time running out, Harris banks on the shortest format

The sojourn of Ryan Harris has been a tad underwhelming, and not entirely of his own doing, an errant knee the culprit ever since he made his international debut in ODI in early 2009. Kaushik Chatterji writes. Veterans in T20

Don't blame Dhoni alone if Super Kings fail to make it

The race for a place in the top-four is in its final stage and I feel the Chennai Super Kings will play one of their most crucial games at Kolkata on Monday. Sourav Ganguly writes.

Passage to final won’t be easy

Some defeats hurt more and Monday’s loss to the Super Kings was disappointing for two reasons. It removed us from the top two places and it came off the last ball of the match. That’s never a good feeling! Jacques Kallis writes.

Not just players, franchises should also be punished

This isn’t the first time the nexus between cricket and money has been exposed, and this won’t be the last. Aakash Chopra writes.

Slash in salary an insult to their talent and performance

Although Mohnish Mishra, one of the players suspended following the TV sting, has since claimed he made ‘frivolous statements’ that he was paid black money by Pune Warriors for ‘personal gain’, he should be hauled up if he is found to have made misleading remarks. Amol Karhadkar writes.

Dhoni's patchy form has hit CSK hard

The IPL is more or less over for the Super Kings. Though possibilities are been talked about, I have a feeling that the holders are done with this time. Sourav Ganguly writes..

RCB will be a handful if they make it to playoffs

This edition of the IPL has been exciting to the core and heading towards the closure of the league stage, the playoff seats are still up for grabs. Mark Waugh writes.

The switch is not a hit

In my playing days, I believed many Englishmen used to unnecessarily complicate what was meant to be a reasonably simple game. Ian Chappell writes.
