Kyle Jamieson - an extra in New Zealand’s 'perfect' T20 scheme of things

Who is Kyle Jamieson in the New Zealand setup? A new-ball bowler? A batting all-rounder? A wicket-taker or just a genuine extra in New Zealand’s T20 scheme of things? At the moment, it certainly looks like Jamieson is an extra that the Kiwis could avoid, especially considering their strength.

Last hurrah for 'maverick' Stokes to put up a freak show in the series 

Three Tests, six innings, just one fifty and 146 runs is what Ben Stokes has accumulated so far in the ongoing series at an average of 24.33. He has bowled just 15 overs, taken one wicket, averaged 64 with a strike-rate of 90. This just has been a horrible series for the Durham all-rounder.

Moeen Ali did the right thing, about time we show how serious we're for mental well-being

Peak COVID time was unprecedented. The world had never seen a deadlier pandemic brutal enough to stall everything and send life into a standstill. At least, in a century. One of the most important realizations that followed was to be more kind and show empathy to each other.

Ben Foakes - the specialist discussion in the age of batsman-wicketkeeper

When the ball whizzed past Rishabh Pant, turning sharply past his inside edge, the ball rifled past the leg-stump only to find an equally alert Ben Foakes waiting by the millisecond to affect the stumping. Now imagine this on a third-day track where the ball has an uneven bounce?

South Africa and the path to redemption in second Test against Pakistan

When you think of South Africa and Asia in the same breath, Amla's 253 and Kallis' 173 in Nagpur, Ab de Villiers' 278 in Abu Dhabi and Steyn's 8-fer in Motera or 10-fer in Nagpur spring to mind. From being one of the best foreign teams in Asia to losing eight straight Tests, things have changed.

20 from 2020: The events that a tumultuous year of cricket will be remembered for

2020 was basically like every other year of cricket, except on DMT. 12 months of action and more were sandwiched into six, and so intense, high-octane, and hyper was the action that is, to date, feels like one long-drawn-out trip.

So, what happens to Australia’s batting combination now?

The Australian bowlers produced the performance of a lifetime to help the side take a 1-0 lead in the series, but still under scrutiny is the batting, which could see radical changes come Boxing Day despite the favourable result.

From R Ashwin's A+ to Prithvi Shaw's F: Grading Indian player's performance in the Adelaide Test

For all the hype, anticipation and drama built around the day-night Test, it didn't even last more than two and half days. In the end it turned out to be a comfortable win for the Australians as they routed out India for 9/36 after being down and out at the finish of the second day.

Consistency before Charisma - Australia's ‘pacy’ way to success

Two bowling attacks that have garnered and required the attention of the entire cricketing world - the Australian pace attack and the Indian pace attack. While India showed what they were capable of on Day 2 of the Test, the Australians walked away right on the ‘pink’ side of things.
