IPL Playoffs: Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings

Hey Guys,

Today was the first qualifier of the IPL 2015. Mumbai Indians faced Chennai Super Kings in a debatable one-sided match where Mumbai thrashed Chennai.

Mumbai Indians won the toss and batted first on a batsman’s paradise. Lendl Simmons and Partiv Patel gave Mumbai a good start with Simmons making 65. Another big score was by Pollard who made 41. With the help Simmons and Pollard and many other Mumbai got to 187 for 6. Chennai did really well containing Mumbai to 187 because at one stage it looked like Mumbai would get 200, 210 and even 220. Dwayne Bravo was the pick of the bowlers by picking up 3 wickets.

When Chennai started batting they kept losing wickets on a early interval. Dwayne Smith got out for a duck on his first ball by Lasith Malinga, he got out LBW. Next Michael Hussy got out for 16 by Vinay Kumar. Wickets kept falling until Chennai were all out of 162. The top scorer was Faf du Plessis with 45 and the pick of the bowlers was Malinga who picked up 3 wickets.

Mumbai Indians won the match by 25 runs.

Zimbabwe Confirm Tour to Pakistan

Hey Guys,

Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) has confirmed the upcoming tour to Pakistan against the advice of the country’s Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC). The board’s final decision comes after three days of debate, which began on Thursday when ZC issued a press release suspending the tour and 20 minutes later sent an email retracting it. In the interim, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had told journalists that ZC had been in contact with it and had reassured that the tour would take place as scheduled.

Several players were hesitant to make the trip, with a few even considering pulling out, but concerns over the impact that would have on the future of their careers forced them to change their minds. All 16 squad members, which includes six returnees and one new cap, have agreed to travel to Pakistan for the two T20 and three ODI series which begins on May 22.

Peace Out,

Dutch Lions

Hi Guys,

Today I have some fantastic news about my success in cricket. As most of you will know I live in The Netherlands and if you saw my picture in this blog you might have already guessed what I was going to talk about.

I have been selected for the Dutch National U13 Team and from July to August I will be going on a tour to England. We will travel from Rotterdam to Kent where we will play 1 or 2 exibition matches. Then, we will travel to Bromesgrove School where we will play a tournament in a cricket festival.

I know its a short one but I am really excited.

Peace Out,

The Cornered Tiger.
