Kochi Tuskers introduce players, launch logo

Kochi Tuskers Kerala, which is making its debut in the 2011 edition of the Indian Premier League, on Wednesday introduced its players and launched its promotional logo for the Twenty20 tournament starting on Friday.

'Wish I played more Tests against Sachin'

Wasim Akram is in demand even eight years after retirement. The only Pakistani associated with the Indian Premier League (IPL), he is the bowling consultant of the Kolkata Knight Riders. The man who bowled lethal left-arm pace spoke to HT on Sunday. Excerpts:

We want to win for Dada: SRK

Kolkata Knight Riders who played their first match of the Indian Premier League season 4 at their home ground without city's favourite son Sourav Ganguly, witnessed their lowest ever turnout and that prompted team co-owner Shah Rukh Khan to get into the damage control mode.

New IPL skippers facing steep learning curve

What would you do as a skipper at a point, when the game has gone down to the wire with just three overs remaining, and your best bowlers — R.P Singh, Sreesanth & Vinay Kumar are left with an over each to bowl?

Looking forward to a hectic schedule

There's a first time for everything in life, no matter how old you are, and there's a first time for everything in cricket, too. I think I've taken four catches in an innings before — but certainly not all on the boundary!

Like wine, getting better with age

One major focus of Twenty20 cricket is to wean new, young fans who have many other games to follow, especially on television. However, on the field, the Indian Premier League (IPL) 4 is again proving that class is permanent.

After long wait, instant gratification

Success does not come easy. However, the means are worth the result. Paul Valthaty's 15-year cricket odyssey finally bore fruit on Wednesday, and how. Rohit Bhaskar writes.

Royals, the hub of domestic talent

Four seasons ago, apart from changing the way cricket was perceived, the IPL was also looked at as a platform for unheralded domestic players to get noticed. If there's one team that's mastered the act, it's Rajasthan Royals. Debjeet Kundu writes.

Botha has silenced Doubting Thomases

Today's game against the Rajasthan Royals should be a spectacle, not to mention a test of strength for both teams. The Royals have made a great start with the legendary Warne still going strong, writes Jacques Kallis.

Sachin hungry for more

Our chase against Royal Challengers Bangalore may have looked easy and professional, but it had a very interesting dimension.

Valthaty needs to carry on

Paul Valthaty has been the flavour of the IPL so far. Largely unknown till a couple of days back, his brilliant hundred against the Chennai Super Kings has become a talking point. Javagal Srinath writes.

Steadily shaking off the slow tag

RCB were thrashed in the IPL game against Chargers on Thursday but for the visionaries of Indian cricket, the brief alliance in the middle between Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara gave a glimpse of a partnership which could serve the country in the future. Sanjjeev Karan Samyal writes.

It's the same game for Mr Cricket

He landed in Chennai a day before the game, but the effortless ease with which he slipped into his rhythm from ball one, Mike Hussey must be wondering 'what's the fuss about the challenge of adapting to different formats, teams and positions'. Sanjjeev Karan Samyal reports.
