IPL Match at Sharjah Today Live Score

The first match of IPL7 was played yesterday at Abu Dhabi between KKR and Mumbai Indians. The second match of the tournament will be played today at Sharjah cricket ground, that previously have help lots of highly popular international cricket matches. Match starts at 6:30 pm local time and participating teams are Delhi Daredevils and Royal Challengers Bangalore. For Delhi team IPL has not been a happy story so far and they have mostly remain in the bottom of the IPL points table in previous seasons. RCB on the other hand despite being the most star studded team has been unable to win IPL so far, though they appeared in the final once in IPL2 but got defeated by Deccan Chargers team.

DD vs RCB is gonna be an interesting match and hopefully it'd attract huge crowd today in the evening for the match. RCB team are the favorites here but I expect a good fight from Daredevisl as well. In T20 no team is weak and anything could happen in the course of 20 overs of an inning.

Kings Eleven Punjab Team Overview - Kings XI Team Punjab

Kings XI as all the Indian cricket fans or fans of IPL must know is an IPL team owned by KPH Dream Cricket Private Limited. PCA stadium Mohali is the home ground  for the Kings XI team but they play few of the home matches at the beautiful and picturesque HPCA stadium located at Dharamshala, Kangra, Himachal Pradesh. Unfortunately there are no matches to be played in Dharamshala this year.

Kings XI team were the semi finalists in the first season of IPL in 2008 and that was the best ever performance of the team so far in IPL. Nest year they didn't qualified to the knockouts and in the IPL3 they finished at the bottom of points table.  Since then team is trying hard but failed to make it to the knock out stages.

This year in IPL7 team looks fresh, solid and right balance of fast bowlers and hard hitting batsmen. However the team has a few specialist spinners and that might be an issue since there are very few games to be played at the fast Mohali pitch.

A change in captain ship might also help the team, George Bailey the Australian T20 captain will lead the team who has stars like Virendar Shewag, Mitchell Johnson, S Marsh, David Miller, Balaji etc.

Listed below is the full squad of the Kings XI Punjab IPL team: 

  • Virender Sehwag    Right-handed    Right-arm off break    
  • George Bailey    Right-handed    Right-arm medium    
  • Shaun Marsh    Left-handed    Slow left-arm orthodox    
  • David Miller    Left-handed    Right-arm off break    
  • Cheteshwar Pujara    Right-handed    Right-arm leg break    
  • Gurkeerat Singh    Right-handed    Right-arm off break    
  • Mandeep Singh    Right-handed    Right-arm medium    
  • Manan Vohra    Right-handed    Right-arm medium    
  • Rishi Dhawan    Right-handed    Right-arm medium-fast    
  • Glenn Maxwell    Right-handed    Right-arm off break   
  • Akshar Patel    Left-handed    Slow left-arm orthodox    
  • Thisara Perera    Left-handed    Right-arm medium-fast   
  • Wriddhiman Saha    Right-handed        
  • Parvinder Awana    Right-handed    Right-arm medium-fast    
  • Lakshmipathy Balaji    Right-handed    Right-arm medium-fast    
  • Beuran Hendricks    Right-handed    Left-arm medium-fast    
  • Mitchell Johnson    Left-handed    Left-arm fast    
  • Murali Kartik    Left-handed    Slow left-arm orthodox    
  • Anureet Singh    Right-handed    Right-arm medium-fast    
  • Karanveer Singh    Right-handed    Right-arm leg break googly    
  • Sandeep Sharma    Right-handed    Right-arm medium-fast    
  • Shardul Thakur    Right-handed    Right-arm medium-fast    
  • Shivam Sharma    Right-handed    Right-arm off-break    
 Playing with only one specialist batsmen might not look good but in IPL its hard to get the beast deal from the auctions. Still it seems like Kings XI owners have stroked the best deal here and got the most powerful combination for the team.

Let me introduce you to the owners of King XI Team: 
  • Preity Zinta - Famous bollywood celebrity, worked in lots of hindi movies
  • Ness Wadia - of Wadi Group
  • Mohit Burman - of Dabur Group
  • Karan Paul -  of Apeejay Surendera Group
  •  Praneeth Kumar
Coach of Kings XI - Interestingly the Kings XI is the only IPL team that have Indian coach, all other team have got foreigners as coaches. This would be interesting to see how Sanjay Bangar, who has played in IPL, performs as the coach of Kings XI.

Kings XI will play first match on 18th  and we wish the team good luck for this tournament. Hopefully the team will show the best performance in the history of IPL this year.

IPL 7, Match 1 - KKR vs Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians the defending Champions of the IPL and KKR who were the winner in IPL 2012  will play the opening match for the season 7 of IPL. The first match of IPL7 will be played on 16th April - 2014 and this is going to be an exciting match. Both the teams has been in good form for last 2-3 seasons. The best thign of IPL7 is that there would be very less home advantage this time for most of the teams as significant number of games are being played at UAE a neutral venue for all.

Also back home  in India there might be some new venues as Rajasthan Royal will play all matches all matches (home) at Ahemdabad in place of Jaipur. Chennai Super Kings also play matches at seocnd home Ranchi in place of Kochi. However the Kins XI Punjab team will have to miss the second home Dharamshala and play matches at Mohali and other venues.

Coming back to the opening match between Kolkata Knight Riders and the Mumbai Indians, the good news for Mumbai team is that the explosive all rounder Pollard has already hit form making a comeback after injury that kept him our of action for around 6 months. The venue Abu Dhabi  would be new to most of the players from both the teams.  The captain of KKR, Gautam Gambhir might want to display good show as this IPL could be his best chance to offer his candidacy for the 2015 ICC cricket world cup. Lets wait for the IPL to start first as wold cup is still a couple of months to go.

IPL 2014 Opening Ceremony - No Break - After T20 World Cup Enjoy IPL Now

We enjoyed the T20 cricket in the ICC T20 world cup 2014 and before the hangover was over its time to switch to the most popular T20 cricket league called the IPL. This is no doubt the most popular form of cricket that drives fans crazy. This year IPL is played in two phases, one in UAE and one in India.

Elections for Lok Sabha in India during April & May is the reason to host a part of IPL in UAE (South Africa and Bangladesh were also preferred choices but UAE was the lucky destination). The seventh season of IPL or we can say IPL-7 will also be little bit different this time and there won't be extravagant opening ceremony like the previous seasons of the league.  This year it'd be  a gala dinner only on April 15th. The dinner is hosted by Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan son of Sheikh of Abu Dhabi. Dinner would be hosted at Emirates Palace to be attended by various celebrities from Bollywood and VIP guests.  But the extravagant opening ceremonies are not what fans like in IPL, its cricket, the sixes, the wickets and the excitement in each and every delivery that drives the cricket fans crazy. I personaly have never watched any IPL opening ceremony so far but I've never missed any opening and closing match. In between the opening and final match of IPL I've watched the games of team I've supported always the Mumbai Indians. But since this time Sachin Tendualkar in not playing for Mumbai I'd be supporting my home team the Kings XI Punjab this time, hopefully they'll have a good season this time.

So be prepared for another exciting round of T20 cricket, let the fever of twenty twenty caught the world again for another couple of months.  Please also keep checking some famous quotes from IPL at this post.

ICC World T20 Semi Final Match Today

Indian will play against South African in the second semi final match of ICC T20 World cup tournament. The Indian cricket team has relied heavily on the spin balling attack and has remained unbeaten in all the 4 matches played in the tournament so far. However knock out stage is a different ball game.

South Africa cricket team has never won any T20 world cup and this might be a golden chance for them. South Africa has a very lethal balling attack and it could hamper the Indian solid batting line on any day. The result from the yesterday match are sufficient to support my statement, everyone was expecting the defending champion West Indies to win the match against Sri Lanka but they are our of the tournament now. Same thing can happen to team India today.

For team India it could be difficult to choose between Dhawan and Rahane for the opening slot. Might be captain Dhoni could surprise everyone with some changes in the pace attack or in the batting order. This captain cool is highly unpredictable at the knock out stages with his strategies.

So lets wait a few hours more for another interesting and exciting match of T20 cricket. The live scoreboard can be seen right above.

Have a great day -

ICC World T20 World Cup Live Match Score Today

Lasith Malinga of Sri Lanka lead the team in a virtual quarter final match against New Zealand and once again Malinga is given the chance to lead the team in the semi-final match against West Indies today. Both the teams previously met in the final of last T20 world cup in the year 2012 and Sri Lanks lost that match to the West Indies team. This is a perfect time when the Sri Lankan team could take the revenge and feature in back to back finals of the T20 world cup. West Indies team on the other hand is getting stronger in this format of the game.

The Biggest challenge for Malinga is to keep the explosive batsmen from the West Indies, which is quiet a difficult task. The winning team from today's match will face the winners from the second final match (India Vs South Africa, to be played tomorrow) on Sunday, 6 April.

There are still few hours left for the match to start but there already lot of excitement for the match. You can enjoy the live match on TV on in case you are traveling or don't have access to video stream of the match you can simply enjoy the live scoreboard being shown above.

Hope you enjoy the T20 thriller today.

Virtual Quarter Final for Pakistan & West Indies Today in ICC World T20

In the ICC world T20 world cup 2014, today Pakistan and West Indies will play the last match of the group stage. For both the teams this is a must win match as the victory here would take the winning team to the semi-finals stage of the tournament. This makes the T20 match today a quarter final match for both the teams.

Interestingly this is first time that Pakistan and West Indies will face each other in a T20 world cup. Both the team have a good spin attack and equally good batting line.

Another group stage match will feature Australia and Bangladesh. Both the teams have lost all the three matches they have played so far and this is the last chance to quit the tournament with a win.

ICC Twenty Twenty Word Cup update: 

  • SL beat NZ in a virtual quarter final - Just like the match today between Pak and WI, the yesterday match for Sri Lanka and New Zealand was a quarter final. Sri Lanka team won the match and proceed to the semi finals stage along with South Africa and India. It was a low scoring match and initially it seemed Sri Lanka might lose the match but a powerful spell from Herath, combined with an injury and two run outs cost the match for New Zealand team.
  • Netherland beat England: This was one of the match that got minimum crowd. And to surprise all Netherland won the match. 

ICC World T20 semi final 1 - The first semi final of the tournament will be played between Sri Lanka and the winner of the match today (Pak Vs WI). In case the match between both the teams is washed out West Indies will qualify based on better net run rate. Match will be played on 3-April-2014 at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur

ICC World T20 semi final2 - The second semi final will be played between India and South Africa. India is so far the only undefeated team in the tournament. However South Africa team has a very aggressive pace attack lead by Dale Steyn.  Though South Africa has never won any major international event, I'm getting the feel that South Africa team may feature in the T20 world cup final on April 6. In case this happens it could be first world cup final for South Africa.
