Phillip Hughes 1988-2014

Dies at 25, after freakish accident

Death came two days after being hit by a bouncer

Two days after being struck by a bouncer in what was called a freakish accident, Australian star cricketer Phillip Hughes died in a Sydney hospital on Thursday. Cricketers, politicians and sports people have paid tribute to Hughes, who at 25, became one of only a handful of professional players to suffer a fatal head injury on the field within the last century. Hughes had burst on to the international scene in 2009 with two hundreds in his second Test.

The South Australian batsman was playing in a Sheffield Shield match against New South Wales when a bouncer from Sean Abbott hit his neck. Hughes received mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on the pitch and was soon whisked by medical transport off the pitch to St Vincent's Hospital. He then received emergency surgery to reduce the pressure on his brain but never regained consciousness.

After his death was announced, cricket officials from Pakistan and New Zealand chose to postpone the second day's play in the third and final Test between the two countries. A two-day tour match between a Cricket Australia XI and India, scheduled to be played in Adelaide on Friday and Saturday, has been cancelled.

India 'A' convincingly take CSA Tri-series title in Pretoria

India 'A' emphatically beat their Australian counterparts by 50 runs to clinch the Tri-series final of the Cricket South Africa (CSA) triangular series at the TUKS Oval in Pretoria on Wednesday. Opting to bat first after winning the toss, India lost two wickets in the first six overs, but the 108-run third-wicket partnership between Shikhar Dhawan (62) and Dinesh Karthik (73) pulled the innings back in India’s favour. But India lost their last five wickets for 14 runs as they recorded the third-lowest total of the tournament.In Australia’s chase, Tim Paine (47) and Hazlewood (30) were the only ones to prosper in the face of some tight bowling from the Indian, especially the quick bowlers, who were able to extract slight extra bounce. Speedster Mohammed Shami (2-30) dealt initial blows, while Shahbaz Nadeem (3-34), Perveez Rasool (1-30) and Suresh Raina (1-33) kept the Aussie batsmen under tight leash. Australia were bowled out for 193 in 46.3 overs, handing India their fifth 'A' tournament victory since the concept was introduced in 1994.

Delhi Test, Day Three

India seal series whitewash in Delhi [IND-AUS:4-0(4/4)]

India completed a 4-0 series whitewash, as Cheteshwar Pujara helped seal the win with an unbeaten 82 in Delhi. Chasing 155 to win, India were 5/3 in a mini-collapse before MS Dhoni (12 not out) and Cheteshwar Pujara (82 not out) guided the home side to an historic series triumph, reaching 158/4 off just 31.2 overs to win with more than two days to spare. At the start of the day, the outlook was promising for Australia as they restricted India to adding only six runs to their overnight total (272 all out) with the help of spinner Nathan Lyon's career-best 7-94. Australia were skittled for 164 as man-of-the-match Ravindra Jadeja claimed 5-58 with his left-arm spinners to put the hosts on top. For Australia, tailender Peter Siddle (51 and 50) top-scored for the second time in the match - the first time a No.9 has done so in Test cricket.It's the first time Australia have lost four matches in a Test series since going down 5-1 in the 1978/79 Ashes. It is also the first time that Australia have lost a series 4-0 since a defeat by South Africa in 1970. India XI: A M Rahane, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Ravindrasinh Jadeja, Mahendra Dhoni (c, wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma.

Indian Team Selection

Injured Dhawan ruled out of 4th Test; Suresh Raina included

India's latest batting sensation Shikhar Dhawan who suffered a hand injury during the Mohali test was on Tuesday ruled out of the fourth and final Test against Australia in Delhi. He will be out of action for six weeks, and Suresh Raina will replace him in the squad. The selection committee had opted for veteran left-handed batsman Gautam Gambhir as the substitute opener, before a blood test showed he was down with jaundice.In the absence of Sehwag, Gambhir and Dhawan, Murali Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane are the only openers in the squad and Rahane, who is yet to play a Test, looks most likely to partner Vijay in Delhi. Suresh Raina, who has played 17 tests, wasn't part of the squad for the four Tests against England and the first three Tests against Australia. India Squad: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Murali Vijay, Suresh Raina, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, Pragyan Ojha, Ishant Sharma, Ashok Dinda, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Mohali Test, Day Five

Australia's eighth loss in the last 10 Tests in India, hosts claim series [IND-AUS:3-0(3/4)]

After bowling out Australia for 223 in their second innings, India chased down the target of 133 with 15 balls remaining before close of play on the last day of the Mohali test to win the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. This marks the first time that India have won three successive Tests against Australia in a Test series. Of the last Ten Tests played by Australia in India, they have lost eight and drawn the remaining three.Earlier, a defiant 65-minute last-wicket stand between Starc (35) and Xavier Doherty (18) consumed 18.1 overs for 44 runs to ensure the Indians bat well into the mandatory overs. When the final hour started, India required 45 runs from a minimum of 15 overs. With only a few overs to go, Jadeja (8) found the boundary twice after Sachin (21) was run out, and then skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (18) smashed three fours off Mitchell Clarke in a row to finish the innings and win the series. India XI: S Dhawan, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Ravindrasinh Jadeja, Mahendra Dhoni (c, wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma. England XI: David Warner, Ed Cowan, Michael Clarke (Captain), Phil Hughes, Steve Smith, Brad Haddin (Wicket Keeper), Moises Henriques, Mitchell Starc, Peter Siddle, Xavier Doherty, Nathan Lyon. 12th man: Glenn Maxwell.

Indian Team Selection

Sehwag dropped for remaining Tests

India has dropped veteran batsman Virender Sehwag from the Test side for the first time since 2008, possibly ending the reign of one of cricket's most brutal openers. The squad was trimmed to 14 with the selectors deciding against picking a replacement for him. The out of form opener has scored just 27 runs in his three innings (2, 19 and 6) during the ongoing series. At the start of the Australia series, his regular opening partner Gautam Gambhir was also dropped from the Indian test squad, but then hit a century for India A against the touring side.

twitter cricketcircle

[Above: Sehwag's tweet after the news broke.]
The hard-hitting 34-year-old has scored 8,586 runs in 104 Tests at an average of 49.34 since his debut in 2001. At his peak he was relentless, twice passing Triple Hundred - 309 in Multan in 2004 against Pakistan and 319 in Chennai against South Africa in 2008. However, he has scored only one century since November 2010 - a 117 against England in 2012. His 219 from 149 balls against West Indies remains a world record score in one-day international cricket. In the absence of Sehwag, Delhi-born left-hander Shikhar Dhawan could get a chance to open the innings with Murali Vijay in the two matches to be played in Mohali (from March 14) and Delhi (from March 22) respectively. India Squad: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, Pragyan Ojha, Ishant Sharma, Ashok Dinda, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Hyderabad Test, Day Four

Second big win for India [IND-AUS:2-0(2/4)]

MS Dhoni emerged as the most successful Indian captain as the hosts beat Australia by an innings and 135 runs to take an unassailable 2-0 lead at Hyderabad. This was his 22nd win as captain in 45 Tests with 5 away wins (1 SAF, 1 SRL, 1 NZL, 1 WIN, 1 BAN), going past Sourav Ganguly's 21 in 49 with 11 away wins (1 SRL, 1 AUS, 1 ENG, 1 PAK, 3 BAN, 3 ZMB, 1 WIN). Spinners R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja produced a mesmerising spell as Australia folded for 131, becoming the first team to lose a Test by an innings after declaring their first innings. It was Ashwin's eighth five-for in 11 home Tests. India XI: Virender Sehwag, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Mahendra Dhoni (capt & wk), Ravindrasinh Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma. England XI: David Warner, E J M Cowan, Philips Hughes, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke (Captain), Matthew Wade (Wicket Keeper), G J Maxwell, Moises Henriques, Peter Siddle, James Pattinson, X J Doherty.

India took 11.3 overs to score the 50 runs required for a victory, but lost two wickets in the process. MS Dhoni, who is now level with Ganguly as the most successful Indian captain with 21 wins, won the man of the match award for his magnificent innings of 224 in the first innings. India XI: MS Dhoni (capt & wk), V Sehwag, M Vijay, CA Pujara, SR Tendulkar, V Kohli, RA Jadeja, R Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, B Kumar, I Sharma.
