The 35-year old hit two two fours and two over the boundary.He scored two sixes. The first was against UmeshYadav in the 13th over. He sent a straight drive and followed through brilliantly then four off the next ball. The second was against Chris Woakes in the first ball of the 15th over.

NEWLYWEDS SINGH AND KEECH IN LAVISH RECEPTION

Following their recent wedding ceremony blessed by the spiritual leader of the dera at a location chosen by the mother of the groom Yuvraj Singh, the newly wedded couple continued the celebrations as they moved further to the capital for a lavish reception to be held at a posh hotel.


The wedding had seen the couple adorned in lovely apparels with the new bride looking gorgeous in a stylish lehenga in blue and golden, accompanied by soft curls and gold toned earrings.

A sherwani that was so sewn in such a way to match the print of Keech’slehenga ensured that Yuvraj, the new groom looked his dapper best.

The final round of the celebrations which was being hosted by the newlyweds in a posh hotel at the capital saw a lot of glitz as stars and celebrities from both the sports and entertainment world were all on ground to party with the newest couple.

Sourav Ganguly was also at the event, where he took a picture with the lovely couple. And with his presence at the event, Yuvraj’s joy would have been multiplied by manifolds as the pair share a special bond. (more…)

Suresh Raina reckons the promotion of his captain MS Dhoni

Suresh Raina reckons the promotion of his captain MS Dhoni in the batting order in One Day Cricket is a good thing from the team’s point of view as the Ranchi veteran is not only capable of building partnerships, but, can also accelerate with great effect and thus, can control the Indian innings.

Dhoni has mostly batted at 6 or 7 for his national side in all forms of the game, but, on the Bangladesh tour, he opted to move up the order citing the need of a versatile player to be slotted at that position and he hinted that he would probably like to keep himself there in the future too.

If Dhoni continues to be in higher middle order for India, then Raina will have to take the responsibility of finishing the innings and the Ghaziabad left hander says he is ready for it.

In an interview to a website last evening, the 28-year old said, “Being a finisher is not the easiest job in Cricket. You always enter the ground in a demanding situation. You have to bat with a very high strike rate and then, you have to make sure you remain consistent as well. If you fall cheaply in 3 or 4 games, the jury will be out on you. You’ve got to be temperamentally very good if you want to achieve success in the role of a finisher.” (more…)

Yuvraj Singh is being seen with a new number at the back of his jersey

Yuvraj Singh is being seen with a new number at the back of his jersey this IPL.

He has always used jersey no. 12 in his career, but, in the ongoing IPL, it’s 3.

Everybody is trying to find out what’s the reason for him to go for a change in number.

Yuvraj yesterday tried to give the impression that there is no specific reason behind the change in his jersey number. Actually, some other player in the squad wanted to have no. 12. So, he decided to go for 3. That’s what he said.

But, knowing Yuvraj, one can say that he is one of the most superstitious Indian players and he cares a lot about these things, the numbers and all. So, he would not just casually get ready to have some other jersey number. There must be somebody who has suggested him to do so.

However, this new number is not bringing that much of luck for Yuvraj

He is struggling with the bat in the ongoing IPL. Out of the 5 innings that he has played so far, he has just had one good score to his name. He has not been able to do anything substantial bowling wise either. (more…)

Yuvraj Singh comes out as the most expensive player

Whenever the Indian Premier League auctions take place, Yuvraj Singh comes out as the most expensive player, but, very rarely has he done justice to his capability in this lucrative T20 tournament.

Yuvraj is currently in the Delhi Daredevils squad getting close to 3 million Dollars for his services, but, four matches are gone and he has not won them even one match single handedly.

Yes, in one match, he contributed with a half century, but, other than that, he has been quiet.

When you get such a big amount of money, you have to put on match winning performances consistently, but, that is not happening with Yuvraj.

And, it’s not about this season only. Even in the last season, he was bought at similar sort of price by the Royal Challengers Bangalore, but, he hardly performed for them. A couple of matches here and there and that’s all.

When Bangalore released Yuvraj this winter, it was supposed to be the end of his stardom and there were talks that he might struggle even to find a buyer in the following auction, but, let alone finding a buyer, he ended up getting the maximum price again which was mind bogging provided his recent form.
