Pakistan CT final: Pacer Mohammad Amir may return to squad

If Kedar Jadhav turned the game for India, it was only after the former skipper advised Virat Kohli to try a part-timer. But he had a massive hip surgery, so muscles around that area are always vulnerable, and today also he felt a bit of stiffness in his right knee, and we decided the smart decision is to rest a guy who's playing - there's no doubt about Rohit's ability and what he brings to the team.

"You can sense that", said James. "Obviously it's a dramatic situation to be in, but it is what it is, we've got to get ready for game four". But then you also understand the energy level that it takes in order to make that type of shot and what it demands out of your body. Read More »

Hideki Matsuyama had a solid showing at the Masters in April. "It's going to be a fun weekend", he said. What Fowler does have going for him is that he's lost a bunch of majors.

He walked away from a city, shoot, an entire state that treasured him, and a franchise committed and close to winning a title, to join an all-star team nearly guaranteed a championship.

How Eoin Morgan justifies England defeat vs Pakistan

I feel Hassan Ali, who has had a superb tournament so far, will be the biggest threat and for India , Kohli and MS Dhoni will hold the key with the bat. He said that Bangladesh have improved in terms of skill and technique.
