IND vs ZIM: This unique world record will be recorded in the name of Deepak Hooda as soon as India wins, and will become the first batsman to do so!

The start of the international career of Indian team all-rounder Deepak Hooda has been very spectacular so far. Hooda made his international debut for Team India in February this year, and since then he has been very beneficial to the team. Along with his excellent batting performance, he is also an off-spinner and this benefits the team a lot. Hooda has played 14 matches (nine T20s and five ODIs) since making his international debut and India have won all these matches. He has made a special impact in T20 and is now on the verge of achieving a unique world record. India has won 14 matches since Hooda made his international debut. At present, he is only the second player in the world who has won the most consecutive matches since making his debut. Romanian cricketer Satvik Nadigotla is still number one in this matter, having won the most matches 15 consecutive matches since debuting in international cricket. All-rounder Hooda will equal Romanian cricketer Satwik Nadigotla's world record if India manages to win the first ODI against Zimbabwe on Thursday. At the same time, if KL Rahul's team wins the second ODI as well, then Hooda will surpass the Romanian cricketer and make a world record in his name. Players who won the most consecutive matches after making their debut in Men's International cricket 15 - Satwik Nadigotala (Romania) 14* - Deepak Hooda (India) 13 - David Miller (South Africa) 13 - Shantanu Vashisht (Romania) 12 - Collis King (West Indies).

Rishabh Pant's shocking statement, 'Team India is a little nervous about the preparations for the upcoming T20 World Cup'!

India's formidable wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant said the team is a bit nervous about the preparations for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup. The T20 World Cup is going to start this year in Australia on 22 October. India was knocked out of the group stage of the T20 World Cup last year. Team India will enter this ICC tournament this year with a changed look under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma. Pant said on the sidelines of an event, Now that the World Cup is around the corner, the whole team is a bit nervous but at the same time we as a team like to give our 100 percent and focus on the process. We can only do this. Hopefully this time they will reach the finals and do their best for the team. In Australia, we get the support of the audience. It looks like we can win. Rishabh Pant played a key role in winning the historic 2020-21 Test series in Australia. With the same confidence, almost two years later, Pant will once again take to Australian soil with the intention of helping India win the T20 World Cup. Recalling his last two innings played in Australia, Pant said, 'It is one of my favorite moments in my cricket career so far. I am glad that I was able to help my team cross the line that day and get that amazing Test match and series win. Pant also praised the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground, which will host much-awaited India vs Pakistan match in the T20 World Cup. Rishabh Pant said, I think there is a wonderful atmosphere playing at the MCG because it is one of the most prestigious cricket stadiums around the world. Especially the Indian crowd there is fantastic for us. Let us tell you, India won the last ICC tournament in the form of the Champions Trophy in 2013 and now they are desperate to end this wait. The last time India was knocked out was in the first round of the T20 World Cup.

KL Rahul did not forget to thank the team management before the start of the Zimbabwe tour, know what the captain said?

KL Rahul, who has been troubled by injuries for some time, is preparing to lead India in another series, and in the meantime, he does not forget to thank the team management for their contribution in the last two years despite being out of the team for two months. remembered. On the eve of the first ODI against Zimbabwe, the Indian captain said, You may be out for two months but they have not forgotten what you have done for the team and the country in the last two three years. Players really thrive in such an environment. Rahul feels that the Indian team management has been able to create an environment that bridges the gap between a good player and a great player. It is this kind of environment which can help transform a player from a good player to a great player, he can play a lot more innings winning more matches for his team, Rahul said. The top-order batsman, who has scored runs at an average of over 46 with five hundred in 42 ODIs for India, said, It is very important for a player to get the support of the selectors, coach, and captain. It gives you so much confidence that your mindset becomes clear and you can focus on the essentials. The player has suffered multiple injuries during his career and has just recovered from sports hernia surgery.Injuries are part of the game and it hasn't shown me mercy but it is part of the journey, Rahul said. Rahul has been out of the team since the start of the T20 International series against South Africa at home in June. Originality is very important and Rahul believes that in his short stint as a leader, he tried to maintain his identity and let other team members retain their individual identities. When asked whether he has tried to follow in the footsteps of legendary cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Rahul said, I cannot become anything else by going there. Then I will not be fair to myself, to the team, or to the game. I try to be who I am and let other players be who they want to be. I can't even compare myself with these people (Dhoni), the achievement they have done for the country is much greater and I don't think any name can be equated to them, he said. Regarding the players returning to the team after injury, Rahul said, Me, Kuldeep and Deepak (Chahar), we were all in the National Cricket Academy (for rehabilitation) and all were preparing for this series. So I know they have prepared well and they know what they need to do. Kuldeep and Chahar are making a comeback but the famous Krishna, Avesh Khan, and Mohammad Siraj have been a part of the ODI structure for the past six months. Rahul said, Avesh, Siraj, and famous have been playing continuously since the inception of IPL. It is related to his body management and strategies, so there is a need to sit down and talk with him.

IND vs ZIM: Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill can open the innings, not KL Rahul, know India's probable playing XI!

India's tour of Zimbabwe is going to start with the first match to be played today i.e. on 18th August. Many players of Team India would like to gain momentum through this series and step into the Asia Cup 2022. At the same time, the eyes of the young players will be on showing their talent at the international level. In this series, all eyes will be on captain KL Rahul as he will be seen on the cricket field for the first time after IPL. With Rahul regaining his momentum, it will also be a tough challenge to pick the playing XI. Looking at the Indian squad, it is also being expected that Rahul may be seen batting at number 4 or 5 instead of opening. Let's take a look at India's probable playing XI- If we look at the Indian squad, there are only Sanju Samson, Deepak Hooda, and Rahul Tripathi in the middle order who do not have that much experience. In the opening slot, KL Rahul has the options of Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Rituraj Gaikwad, and Ishan Kishan.KL Rahul has experience batting in the middle order, so he can leave his opening slot to bat in the lower order. At the same time, we can see the pairing of Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill starting the innings. Gill looked in fine touch against West Indies. On the other hand, as spinners, we can see the pair of Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav playing. Shahbaz Ahmed, who is associated with the team as a replacement for Washington Sundar, is difficult to get a chance right now. Talking about fast bowlers, Shardul Thakur and Mohammad Siraj can get a chance along with Deepak Chahar.

Rohit Sharma's big statement on the future of ODI cricket, once again the Indian captain won the heart!

Ever since England all-rounder Ben Stokes announced his retirement from ODI cricket, questions have been raised in the cricket corridors about the future of the format. Stokes retired from 50-over cricket citing workload management. After this decision of the captain of the England Test team, cricket pundits started expressing concern that the future of ODI cricket is in danger with the advent of T20 cricket. Now, Indian captain, Rohit Sharma has won hearts by giving his opinion on this issue. Rohit says that his name is derived from ODI cricket and it's all rubbish. In an event, Indian captain Rohit Sharma said, 'My name is derived from ODI cricket, all are nonsense. People were talking like this about Test cricket earlier. Cricket is important to me - whatever the format. I will never say that ODIs are coming to an end or T20s are coming to an end or Tests are about to end. I wish there was some other format because playing the game is the most important thing for me. He further said, Since childhood, we dreamed of playing for India and whenever we play ODIs, the stadiums are packed, and the excitement remains. It is a personal choice whether to play in which format or not, but for me all three formats are important. With this, Rohit Sharma said that Team India has benefited a lot from IPL, it has given exposure to the players, which has strengthened the bench strength of the Indian team. The Indian captain said, 'I don't know what people are thinking about playing leagues before international cricket. There will be ten more leagues, but in the coming years, we will know what the players are like. But as of now, the situation in Indian cricket is the same - we play IPL and international cricket. People are getting exposure and we aim to build bench strength, so Zimbabwe has a lot of players who are visiting for the first time - be it Shahbaz Ahmed, or Rahul Tripathi - and it's good exposure.

Along with returning to the team, he has also been made the captain of the team. Shikhar Dhawan, on the other hand, has been included in the team as the vice-captain.

After opening by Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul, ShubhMan Gill can get a chance at number three. While to bat at number four, the team management can bet on Ishan Kishan. Deepak Hooda and Rahul Tripathi can also get a place with him in the middle order. If these sarees get a place, then surely the Indian team's middle order in the first ODI against Zimbabwe is going to look very strong. These 2 all-rounders will show the power of the ball and the bat In the first ODI against Mumbai, the team management can include Shardul Thakur and Axar Patel in the playing XI. Apart from the ball, Axar Patel has the ability to perform well with the bat as per the requirement of the team. At the same time, Shardul will be seen strengthening Thakur's team in both departments. Krishna may get a chance with Siraj Against Zimbabwe, the team management can include the famous Krishna (Prasiddh Krishna) along with Mohammad Siraj as fast bowlers. While as a spin bowler, Kuldeep Yadav is also likely to get a place in the last-11. Probable playing XI for the first ODI against Zimbabwe: KL Rahul (captain), Shikhar Dhawan (vice-captain), Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan (wk), Deepak Hooda, Rahul Tripathi, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Pranandik Krishna, Mohammad Siraj, and Kuldeep Yadav.

When Indian cricketers were arrested in Pakistan with Sunil Gavaskar, had to spend the whole night in jail!

Even though a bilateral series is not played between India and Pakistan in today's time, it was not so until a few years ago. The Indian team used to go to play Pakistan and the players from Pakistan used to come to India. Three decades ago, when the Indian team went to play Pakistan, a player was beaten up by a joint team of India and Pakistan for de-addiction, due to which everyone had to go to the police station. At that time Pakistani cricketers were also present in the police station along with Indian players. This incident dates back to 1982-83 when the Indian cricket team went to Lahore for a tour of Pakistan. The match was in progress and the players were desperate to drink. At that time Zaheer Abbas had organized a liquor party at his relative's house. All the players reached that party and everyone started drinking heavily. But Pakistani batsman Mohsin got very much intoxicated and started molesting the women of Zaheer's house, after which the Indo-Pak team beat him up a lot. Hearing the sound of fighting, the local people informed the police, after which the players of both teams were taken to the police station. By the time this news came out, even before this, Fazal Mahmood took over the matter and saved the players from being insulted. At that time there were players like Gundappa Vishwanath, Kapil Dev, Srikkanth, Dilip Vengsarkar, and Ravi Shastri along with Sunil Gavaskar in the Indian team and all had to go to the police station.

West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle and former Indian player Yuvraj Singh are very good friends. Often both are seen having fun on the field too. But both were also rivals of each other. Very few people would be aware that once Yuvraj Singh had refused to bowl to Chris Gayle due to fear. Let us know about this in detail- While talking to Gaurav Kapoor during an interview last year in 2020, Gayle told that Yuvraj is one of his best friends. I have a lot of respect for Yuvraj. During this interview, Gayle was asked who is the better bowler out of the two of you, then Chris Gayle answered this question with a laugh and said whether Yuvraj is also a bowler. During this, Gayle said that when I scored 175 against Pune in IPL, where was Yuvraj Singh? Yuvi himself told me that when I was batting, Captain Finch called him to bowl. But Yuvraj refused to do so. He said please don't do this. I am saying that I should not bowl now. In such a situation, I am certainly a better bowler than Yuvi himself. Because I don't hesitate to bowl to any batsman in the world. Although Chris Gayle funnily said this.
