Match Preview:

The fact that the West indies have failed to win even a single game in the ongoing One-Day International series comes as no surprise despite the return of Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuel. England, especially at home, have been a terrific outfit in the 50-over format and despite all the drama surrounding their star all rounder Ben Stokes ahead of the fourth game, they still managed to find a way to win, that helped them bag the series.The saga surrounding Stokes and Alex Hales hasn’t calmed down one bit. In fact, with each passing day, it has only continued to put the ECB under more pressure to act tough on its players. But Eoin Morgan’s men will have to put that behind once again and regroup less than 48 hours after the victory at The Oval in order to finish their home season on a high. Considering the hosts also managed to overpower a spirited West indies performance to seal the series in dramatic fashion, one cannot rule out the possibility of West indies going win less after having already lost out on automatic World Cup qualification.

Not many teams end up on the losing side despite one man hammering 176, which was backed up by a brilliant five-wicket haul while defending a mammoth 356. But the West Indies agonisingly lost after a calculated assault from Moeen Ali and Jos Buttler over a seven-over period that turned the tide before the rain arrived. DLS is unlikely to come into the equation with the rain expected to stay away during the game in Southampton but West Indies problems have only been compounded with Evin Lewis and Jason Holder ruled out of the clash.

While Lewis suffered a hairline fracture during his epic knock on Wednesday, Holder has returned home to attend his uncle’s funeral in Barbados. These two combined made 253 runs in a losing cause and their absence will only add to the responsibility of the two senior statesmen Gayle and Samuels.

England will look to tinker with their combination once again after their bowling attack got plundered at The Oval. They played with only five bowlers as Sam Billings was preferred as the replacement for Stokes. But after conceding more than 350, it will come as no surprise if Morgan opts for a sixth bowling option in their bid to round off the series 4-0.

  • Match Referee: Ranjan Madugalle
South Africa Squad:
Faf du Plessis (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Dean Elgar, Hashim Amla, Temba Bavuma, Theunis de Bruyn, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Morne Morkel, Duanne Olivier, Andile Phehlukwayo, Wayne Parnell, Aiden Markram

Potchefstroom in September is not the sort of Test match that sides build towards. The sleepy student town is about as low key a venue for a South African Test as you get, and the country’s cricket fans are barely emerging from hibernation at this time of year. News of a Test against Bangladesh in ‘Potch’ in September would normally drive them back into their lairs.

This time is a little different, with both teams seeking some new beginnings. While South Africa are hoping to consign a tough tour of England to the back of their minds and embrace a sense of renewal under new coach Ottis Gibson, Bangladesh have a rare opportunity to convert their fast-improving home form into away performances.

By the end of the fourth Test at Old Trafford last month, South Africa were looking ragged. Injuries and illness had not allowed them to settle into a rhythm in the final two Tests, with the batsmen enduring a torrid series in which only one batsman scored a hundred. The batting order was shuffled constantly, a well-balanced side remained elusive and the bowlers often flattered to deceive. Russell Domingo was a dead coach walking, his plight worsening when the identity of his successor was leaked midway through the match.

The past seven weeks have afforded some distance and clarity. The Manchester drizzle has given way to bright Potch sunshine and the world does not feel quite so bad after all. Some problems still remain, but there is time to work on them before the tougher assignments of India and Australia next year. South Africans love nothing more than a young prodigy, and Aiden Markram’s selection to open alongside Dean Elgar has permitted a sense that the future could be bright.

The sudden dearth of fit fast bowlers aside, the main concern is the ever-present issue of balancing the team. For the vast majority of Tests since Jacques Kallis’ retirement nearly four years ago, South Africa opted to play seven batsmen and four frontline bowlers. In England they changed things up, playing Vernon Philander and Chris Morris in the same team, and it worked when both were fully fit in Nottingham.

Now neither are available, and the dilemma has returned. Will they go back to seven batsmen, or will the uncapped Andile Phehlukwayo be given an opportunity to be the allrounder the team needs? Ahead of the first Test, captain Faf du Plessis suggested that South Africa would like to trial both options during the series if conditions allow.

Du Plessis confirmed that he had asked for a pitch with “pace and bounce” at Senwes Park, and the surface remained under cover on Wednesday (September 27) as the groundsman looked to preserve its moisture in a dry climate. It may generally be one of the flatter pitches in the country, but it will still offer Bangladesh the test that they must be relishing.

While previous Bangladesh sides may have been cowed by the prospect of trips to South Africa – they have lost all four Tests here by an innings – the current crop have progressed to the point where this trip can be embraced. Given their rising stature, such chances to prove themselves further have been all too rare for Bangladesh. They have not played Tests in South Africa, Australia or England since 2010.

In January, they played Tests in New Zealand for the first time in seven years and showed how far they have come, scoring 595 for eight declared after being stuck in to bat in the first Test. A second-innings collapse allowed New Zealand to win the match, and confirm that Bangladesh still have work to do. How they go against a Proteas seam attack that has lacked its usual bite, and which will be missing Dale Steyn and Philander, will be one of the sub-plots of the series.

Match Info
  • Match: Ind vs Aus, 4th ODI, Australia tour of India, 2017
  • Date: Thursday, September 28, 2017
  • Time: 08:00 AM GMT
  • Venue: M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru
India Squad:
Virat Kohli (c), MS Dhoni (wk), Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Axar Patel, Lokesh Rahul
Australia Squad:
Steven Smith (c), Peter Handscomb (wk), David Warner, Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell, Travis Head, Marcus Stoinis, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Matthew Wade, James Faulkner, Hilton Cartwright

The Australian players could be forgiven for having their heads turned towards the impending home summer already. Their ODI series in India is all but over and their recent biggest nemesis (no, not Virat Kohli) has made more headlines in the last one day than all of the Aussie batting line-up put together has, in the last 10.

But before they shift their attention to Ben Stokes’s bar brawl and all the news that’s trickling through from Bristol, they still have two matches to play. And more importantly a rut – spanning 11 successive defeats in the 50-over format – to bring to an end.

The ODI champions have made a mockery of their reputation since their World Cup triumph at home in 2015. Out of the 20 losses since (in 48 games), 11 have come in a row. If they add two more to that ignominious tally, they’ll slide down to 4th in the ODI rankings.

India find themselves at the absolute other end of the spectrum. A win on Thursday will give them their first 10-match winning streak ever in the format, while also taking them to the top of the heap in ODIs.

Australia’s Achilles heel through this series has been their batting, and the Chinnaswamy wicket is not about to do them any favours. After a 21-over chase in Chennai and a swing-fest in Kolkata, the Indore wicket came as a respite (to an extent) for the Australian batsman. But the Bangalore surface will once again push them out of their comfort zone, this time asking question of them and their temperament to survive on a slow, sluggish track.

The drastic transformation of the mood between the last time Australia touched down in Bangalore for the second Test four months ago and their arrival for the inconsequential fourth ODI now is symptomatic of how far down the visitors have slipped since their Pune heroics.

A win on Thursday will make no difference from the series perspective, but could come as a balm for Australia’s recurring wounds in the subcontinent and do some repair work to their reputation. After all, till someone else holds the trophy aloft in England in 2019, Australia will technically still be world champions.

Pakistan Squad:

Preview
Pakistan played their last Test on May 13. Sarfraz Ahmed officially became captain across all three formats on July 5. That means, even between the intoxicating highs of winning the Champions Trophy and the return of international cricket at home, they’ve had sufficient time to reflect on the legacies of Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq.

And now reality has arrived, also bringing with it a slew of dilemmas. How does anyone replace a collective experience of 193 Tests, 15,331 runs and 44 centuries all at once? For starters, searching replacements is a futile task Pakistan will do well to steer clear of.  work begins with putting together a group that can play along the more established names – the  the  and attempt to scavenge the runs that the two stalwarts scored. have been given first dibs to help achieve that. It will help Pakistan that the “transition” from the  era begins in the familiar climes a side they’ve played 14 Tests since 2011.

The visitors can certainly empathise with Pakistan’s predicament. They’ve after all been repeatedly smacked on the head by that ten-letter word since Kumar Sangakkara nicked Ravichandran Ashwin off to slip and walked away into a glorious, yet premature some would argue, Colombo sunset. Sri Lanka have been so burdened by this moving on process that star man Angelo Mathews has borne collateral damage. After a spate of injuries and a captaincy handover, he’ll sit out this series opener with a calf strain.

Captain Dinesh Chandimal can hardly have chosen a more strenuous atmosphere to lead in his first overseas assignment as full-time captain. Although, after the fiasco against India, he will may have one less thing to think about – booing fans – when he sits on the team bus to head to the stadium. At the moment, even small positives will do.

When: Pakistan vs Sri Lanka, 1st Test, September 28 – October 2, 06:00 GMT; 11:30 IST

Where: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

What to expect: Bright and sunny days. The pitch at the Sheikh Stadium, as always, will foster stroke play on the first two days with fast bowlers enjoying some assistance in terms of bounce. Spinners will have a say and  Shah, who grabbed a match-haul of 10 for 210 in the last game here will hope to use recent experience for one- over.

England vs West Indies, 4th ODI

05:00 PM, Date : 27-09-2017

Kennington Oval, London

Match Winner :

ENGLAND


Session Tips :-

1st Bat ENGLAND Bulls

  • 10 Over :- YES

  • 50 Over :- YES

1st Bat WEST INDIES Bulls

  • 10 Over :- Yes

  • 50 Over :- Not


England : Without Alex Hales at the top of the order, Jason Roy will return to the side at his home ground looking to reassert himself in ODI cricket. Either Jake Ball or Tom Curran will replace Stokes with Moeen Ali, fresh from his brilliant 53 ball hundred in Bristol, moving up to number six.

Probable XI : Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan ©, Jos Buttler (w), Moeen Ali, Jake Ball/Tom Curran, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, David Willey

Windies : Given their lack of options, Windies may stick with the same team that played in Bristol. If they were to contemplate a change, seamer Alzzari Joseph could come in to the side for Miguel Cummins who conceded more than nine runs an over in the west country.

Probable XI : Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope (w), Marlon Samuels, Jason Mohammed, Rovman Powell, Jason Holder (c), Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, Jerome Taylor, Alzzari Joseph

What to expect: The weather forecast is the first thing cricketers check in September in England and it bodes well for tomorrow. There is even, dare we believe it, the prospect of some sun. The Oval pitch should be hard and flat, and good for batting.

Did you know?

England have won 14 out of the last 15 completed ODIs, including the last seven completed games, against West Indies starting from March 2009.

Chris Gayle needs three more sixes to become the third player to hit 250 sixes in ODIs after Shahid Afridi (351) and Sanath Jayasuriya (270).

Joe Root needs 60 more runs to complete 4000 runs in ODIs. If he gets there in the next three innings, he will be the fastest Englishman and third fastest overall to reach the milestone.

HUBLI TIGERS VS BELLARY TUSKERS, KPL 2017 FREE CRICKET BETTING TIPS

ABOUT THE MATCH

Bellary Tuskers won the match against Bengaluru Blasters recently however, they continue to be at the 6th position with just 5 points; they will take on Hubli Tigers, who are at No. 3 with 6 points, in the last league game of the season at Hubli on 19th September. The hosts lost the last two games played against Mysuru Warriors and Bijapur Bulls, and they will have to win this one to safeguard their place in the semi-finals. Bellary Tuskers are one step out of the tournament and will be eager to register a face-saving win here; it needs to be seen which team can dominate the other on Tuesday.

HUBLI TIGERS

Mayank Agarwal posted a superb 68 off 46 batting first against Mysuru Warriors but others down the line failed to impress and they could muster only 154 runs. Captain Vinay Kumar tried to revive the innings with a well-made 21 while Rohith Gowda played a useful knock; however, despite a disciplined show by the bowlers, they lost the match by 3 wickets. Spinner Ritesh Bhatkal and medium pacer Kranthi Kumar took 2 wickets apiece while Vinay Kumar and Harish dismissed one opponent each.

Against Bijapur Bulls too they batted first but could post only 159 runs, which was mainly due to contributions from Mayank Agarwal, Krishnamurthy Siddharth, Swapnil and Kranthi Kumar down the line. Top-order batsmen like Abhishek Reddy and Anurag Bajpai failed to impress while the bowlers once again couldn’t stop the opposition from hitting the winning runs despite a splendid 4-21 by spinner Abhishek Sakuja.

They did well in the beginning of the series but seem to have lost the magic in recent outings; they do have good resources with bat and ball to make a comeback and make it to the semi-finals.

BELLARY TUSKERS

The bowlers put up a tremendous display of determination and talent as they restricted Bengaluru Blasters to 123 runs in the last match; fast-bowler Bhavesh Gulecha and medium-pacer Prateek Jain took 3 wickets each to stifle the opponents. The opening batsmen then smashed sixes and fours to chase down the 124-run target easily with more than 2 overs to spare. Devdutt Padikkal posted a brilliant 72 off 53 while Kunal Kapoor partnered well to score 40 runs.

Previously against Belagavi Panthers, however, they failed to chase down 155 runs after the top-order batsmen fell quickly. Opener KB Pawan posted a well-made 64, remaining unbeaten but with hardly any support from others down the line, they fell short of the target by 25 runs. Abhinav Manohar contributed well with a quickfire 21 off 10 while Prateek Jain showcased his all-rounder skills, scoring 13 off 6 but it wasn’t enough to win the contest. Earlier, Jain has taken 3 wickets while Amit Verma, Bhavesh Gulecha, and Anil IG took 2 wickets each to contain Panthers to 154.

The Tuskers will be playing the last match of the league as they are at the bottom of the table; however, they won’t give up without a fight and could well put up some fireworks on Tuesday.

OUR PREDICTION

It is a crucial match for Hubli Tigers to reserve their semi-final berth and could come out all guns blazing here. While Bellary Tuskers have performed well recently with the ball, we feel that Hubli Tigers with the home advantage are clear favorites to win the match.

Winner: Hubli Tigers

ENGLAND VS WEST INDIES, 1ST ODI CRICKET BETTING TIPS FREE

ABOUT THE MATCH

The English series against the West Indies has turned out to be far more competitive than people would have guessed and the ODI’s are expected to be no different. The West Indies will be strengthened by the return of their senior players like Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels as they try and seek out an improbable direct qualification into the 2019 World Cup. England will enter the series as favorites but will know better than take the West Indies for granted.

MATCH PREVIEW

ENGLAND

The Champions Trophy held in England just a few months again was supposed to England’s coming of age in the ODI format. They had transformed the team in 2015 that seemed a generation behind every other team in this game to leaders of the format.

This is why it was such a disappointment when they lost in the semi-finals in conditions that Eoin Morgan labeled as poor for the home team. Now with the World Cup approaching, England will be keen to re-embark on their journey towards their first major ODI title.

The heart of England’s renaissance in this format has been their batting. Alex Hales and Jason Roy go hard at the top followed by Root, Morgan, Stokes, Buttler, and Ali. It’s a formidable lineup that will test the West Indies bowling.

There is the likelihood of Jonny Bairstow opening the batting with Alex Hales instead of Jason Roy as he had in the semi-final of the Champions Trophy, a move that would be fair but not necessarily the best one keeping in mind England’s long-term ambitions.

The depth and power hitting of this England side is phenomenal. Joe Root continues to churn out runs at every opportunity while Eoin Morgan seems to save his best for this format as well. Scores of over 300 have become commonplace for this side and we would expect nothing less in this game either.

The bowling will be led by Adil Rashid, who caused quite a few problems for the West Indians in the one-off T20, Liam Plunkett, Jake Ball and possible Chris Woakes. The presence of Woakes would also mean that a capable all-rounder comes in at number 8.

This is an England side that is going to be tough to beat.

WEST INDIES

The West Indies fought admirably in the test series and won easily in the only T20 match. Both the teams had no players in common but the ODI team, fittingly, has a mix of both. Shai Hope returns to the lineup as do Chris Gayle and Evan Lewis, the chief destroyers at Chester Le Street.

A lot of attention will be placed on Gayle’s shoulders, a situation in which he thrives. He has said that he wants to play till the 2019 World Cup and that should be music to the West Indians fans. We are most excited to see Evin Lewis and how he translates the form he has been carrying with him in T20 cricket.

Up until now, the 50 over game has been a mystery for Lewis but that could change very quickly. With Marlon Samuels, The Hope brothers, Rovman Powell, Jason Holder and Jason Mohammad, this West Indian team bats very deep too.

Samuels will be crucial in this longer format along with Shai Hope in the middle while Rovman Powell showed a couple of glimpses why he is being hailed as the next Andre Russell.

It is their bowling which will lack some bite due to the absence of Sunil Narine from the lineup.

Jerome Taylor, Kesrick Williams, Alzarri Joseph and Jason Holder can become one-dimensional very quickly while the spin of Jason Mohammad is not going to keep any batsmen up at night.

The West Indian team will need a lot of runs on the board to assist their bowlers otherwise England could run riot.

PITCH AND CONDITIONS

The conditions at Old Trafford are expected to be excellent for batting. The current forecast is for clear skies and sun throughout the day, something the West Indies will love to see. This is going to be a high-scoring match where big hitter from both teams will have an opportunity to really capitalize.

OUR PREDICTION

We are backing an upset win by the West Indies early o, something that will help light up the series.

West Indies to win.

Winner: West Indies
