In this week’s episode of Edges & Sledges, the 1 Tip 1 Hand team runs down a busy couple of weeks in the world of international cricket!

Episode 15 is all about:

  • The two day India v Afghanistan test and we look ahead briefly at India’s upcoming tour of England.
  • England v Australia and England’s world record score (481-6), their limited overs resurgence and World Cup hopes
  • What is the “new normal” ODI pitch?
  • Sachin Tendulkar’s comments on two new balls in ODIs
  • Dinesh Chandimal’s sweet ball tampering charge
  • The return of India’s favourite son, Suresh Raina in place of Ambati Rayudu (who failed the yo-yo test)
  • The ICC future tours programme
  • 17 year old Kiwi Amelia Kerr’s 232 not out, her mid-game nap, 5 for 17 and Love Island (?!)

India vs New Zealand, 1st ODI (Mumbai, 2017)

Since falling agonisingly short of the Champions Trophy, Kohli and his band of merry men have had a busy summer. India may have lost Anil Kumble as a coach but they have continued their stellar form to conquer Sri Lanka (3-0 in tests, 5-0 in ODIs), West Indies (3-1, ODIs) and Australia (4-1, ODIs). With the weather cooling down and Diwali celebrations nearly complete, the Indian team gets down to the serious business of hosting New Zealand for 3 ODI and 3 T20s.

The ICC Rankings tell us that India should win the ODI series while NZ should walk away with the T20 honours; India is the #2 ODI Team, up against the #5 ranked NZ side. Conversely NZ has top T20 billing against India’s fifth place.

Cricket, however, would be deathly boring if everything went to plan.

The ODI series kicks off Sunday, October 22nd, at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai (1.30pm IST). Read More

India beat the Kiwis but questions remain unanswered

Well, that was a bit of a let-down, wasn’t it?

Going in to the final ODI of the series, the Kiwis had shown fantastic character and fight to tie the ODI series 2-2. However, Vizag saw India wrap up an easy 190 run win so that everyone could have an early night before Diwali celebrations begin on Sunday.

The Kiwis were bowled out for 79, their lowest score against India. Rohit and Kohli scored half-centuries. Amit Mishra picked up five wickets. The long tour seemed to finally get to the Kiwis and it looked like some of the Black Caps had already mentally checked-out.

While the win was a nice little Diwali gift, India will need to do some thinking. While the Champions Trophy 2017 is set to start next June (8 months away!), India only play three more ODIs before then.

Here are four question marks that continue to hang over India’s limited overs team.  Read More
