Wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson has been named the replacement for Dhawan.

Samson’s selection in the squad for the three T20I puts already beleagured Pant in even more dicey position. Many believe that a lot time has been invested in Pant and Now Sanju needs a chance.

Shikhar Dhawan is recovering from a left knee injury that he suffered during a Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20 game for Delhi earlier this month.

Cricket legends turn back the clock in Bushfire Bash charity match.

Managed to raise over USD 7.7 million for the communities devastated by the fires.

From Ponting to Lara, Gilchrist to Tendulkar, Wasim to Hayden, the legends came out and so too did the fans for one epic afternoon at Junction Oval in Melbourne.


USA equaled a dubious record of lowest innings score in ODI. They managed it against Nepal in ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup League 2 at Kirtipur. The sole holder of the distinction were Zimbabwe who did this vs SL in 2004.

USA weren’t all failure though.They managed to create a record of being bundled out in minimum overs. They needed just 12 overs to do so. Managing to overhaul previous best by good two overs! :grinning:
