Zimbabwe lose all wickets between 200-250 runs, and bat again. And if so they will surely be defeated. But if Zimbabwe manages to score more than 350 in their first innings then the match is more likely to be a draw.
Zimbabwe would have gotten all out within 200 runs, but their 7th and 8th wicket partnership has helped them to score above 350 runs. The 8th wicket partnership was blessing for them, Gary Ballance and Brandon Mavuta had added 135 runs in that wicket. West Indies has started their second innings with 68 runs lead only. Now I can't see any other possibilities of this match except draw. Betting odds is 1.04× for the draw now.
This first test series between Zimbabwe and west indies will end in a draw and for that thanks to Zimbabwe Gary Ballance 137 runs innings and Brandon 56 runs which saved them from losing this match . If they didn't maintain this partnership West Indies could have easily won this test match.

So both board should avoid politics in cricket and just focus on enjoying cricket.
Neutral venue for the Asia Cup makes sense, but it makes zero sense for the World Cup.
But playing both event on neutral will be the only solution through which may be both board will agree to play with each other, rather than this no one borad BCCI , PCB will agree to play in each other country,
So in my view both borad should meet each other and take a bilateral decision which are in favor of both boards, and only focus on to set  the clash of indoPak for crazy fans because Pakistan and India rivalry is the beauty of entire cricket

This is why the PCB should choose the best option which is participating in the World Cup for their own good.
If Pakistan agree to shift Asia cup to UAE and take participation in world cup inside India then after that who will give guarantee that India will visit Pakistan for upcoming ICC champion trophy 🏆
Hopefully ICC comes up with a fair and transparent solution in this matter of Asia Cup as this is one of the most important cricket event this year and this involves teams and millions and billions of fans from many countries whose sentiments are with cricket.

Logically Asia Cup will be shifted to a neutral venue for everyone's approval and participation.

Fortune Barisal vs Comilla Victorians in match 38 of Bangladesh Premier League. Today's match was an exciting one. In this match, two teams fought hard. Fortune Barisal batted first and lost all wickets in 19.1 overs to set a target of 122 runs to Comilla Victorians. Comilla Victorians completed their target in 18.3 overs. If Fortune Barisal could score some more runs in today's match then Fortune Barisal would have won the game.

We were impressed by the performance of the players of both teams. Usually, matches on bowling-friendly pitches are very competitive. And today's match was also very competitive. Fortune Barisal team gave a target of only 122 runs. Even so, it was challenging for Comilla to win the match. If Andre Russel could not play well then it would have been impossible for Comilla to win this match. As the batsmen of the Barisal team faced batting disaster, we saw almost the same situation in the Comilla team. However, BPL is getting crowded day by day. Now almost every match is very competitive and enjoyable.
Today's game was very competitive and tough for both teams because of the pitch and both teams struggled alot with making runs . Normal target was given by Barishal team to Comilla Victorians and in 2nd innings CV hardly chased the target . And in the end won the game by few balls .

There it is UEFA 12 to CONMEBOL 10. There were 11 finals where it was CONMEBOL vs. UEFA and out of those 11, CONMEBOL won 8.

Well.. this is a very interesting statistic. The conclusion I can draw out of this is:

1. There is a higher chance of an UEFA team winning the world cup, simply because far more teams from UEFA participates when compared to any other confederation (13 teams till 2022).
2. For CONMEOL, since 4.5 teams are allowed, the chances are considerably less.
3. But out of the 11 finals between CONMEBOL teams and UEFA teams, the former won on 8 occasions. This means that in one-to-one encounters (where UEFA doesn't have the numerical advantage), CONMEBOL dominates the scene completely.

The reason why South American teams perform well in the world cup is unexplainable. Brazil have won the world cup five times, Argentina three times and Uruguay 2. Comparing the sports facilities and economic conditions of UEFA and CONMEBOL member countries, the former is more advanced and better. I think South American players are more talented and they produce some of the best stars in football history, Pele and Maradona are good examples. But we have seen a lot of improvement by the African sides, their chance of winning the world cup is also high based on Qatar's performance.
Definitely South Americans were always favorite football players, they manage to produce exceptionally talented strikers. I think the reason why they are so successful in football is following:
1. Football is very popular in their culture and people love it very much.
2. Most of the time, it's very warm in South American countries.
3. Parents let children to play most of the time and the relationship between neighbors and kids, people is warm. In Europe, parents push their kids to study and spend most of the time to learn school subjects and don't let their kids play that much outside. Also, relationships between people isn't that warm in Europe, people prefer to be more isolated.
Also, the current state of poverty and possibility of earning a good money gives more boost to South American kids. I mean, when you are poor and have no money but it chase it, you are more likely to succeed in life than a person who was born in a family that always had comfort.

The reason for world's best players from Europe or South America is that they take football as their most favourite and first sport as Asia have cricket. 
Europe train football to kids from their childhood and they play football everywhere its school,  clubs , or college universities they have football everywhere so they become extremely fine and polished with time .
Unfortunately this don't happen in Asia or other countries.

West Indies vs Zimbabwe (Day 3)
Day 3 of First Test match between West indies and Zimbabwe are still ongoing, both opener T.chanderpaul and K.brathwaite build a phenomenal partnership of 336 with both player score his 150+ , now at 336 Zimbabwe bowler got his first dismissal of K.brathwaite who score 182 with a strike rate of 58.33, while chanderpaul are still ongoing, he score 161 with a strike rate of  39.56. I will not be shocked if westindies score 500+ because Zimbabwe bowler are completely failed to put the batsman in trouble.
At the moment 2nd wicket of mayers are down with 374 runs in 125 overs.
Wonderful innings played by West indies openers Tagenarine Chanderpaul and Kraigg Brathwaite because of them they gave a big target to Zimbabwe which is difficult for them to chase .

Most of the gambling site offers Bitcoin as an option but they are not too focused on this because there's also a market outside Bitcoin that they need to fulfill to attract more players, why look for Bitcoin option alone?
What works for me, might not ok with you so again try to read all the terms and conditions first before you gamble. You can look at the top crypto gambling site with the good reviews, and from there start to list down the site that can work for you and try their platform with a small money at first, if  you feel entertained then probably that's a good site for you to play with.

Bitcoin is a big relief for people who want to gamble but live in a country where gambling is prohibited. There are many sites that give you option to gamble without disclosing your identity like 1xbit. But you need to be careful while selecting the platform as you can lose huge money if you select wrong platform.

Perth Scorchers' reliable batting managed to win the match. Every batsman has tried to score runs and everyone can be said to be successful. Ashton Turner in particularly the captain of the team and he has done his due diligence. He collected 53 runs off 32 balls from his bat. It can be said that he has played the biggest role in the final match. Besides,other team members were also able to run, so the team was able to easily control the big target.

BBL 2022 is finally over and Perth Scorchers are the winners. After IPL, BBL is the biggest and finest league. Brisbane heat should have scored 190 to 200 but they just scored 175 runs and lost 7 wickets. Perth  Scorchers team easily chased the target with 4 balls to spare

Yes it is definitely a logical thing. The T20 format can be included even though other formats of cricket are longer time consuming so those games are not suitable there. Moreover, ICC has applied to include cricket in the Olympics with such guidelines and has suggested that a total of 6 top-ranking cricket teams should be placed there. If the Olympic Association agrees to consider these issues at its next meeting, cricket may be in a better position at Olympic.

The only reason why cricket was not included in Olympics is because of its time consumption. Now since we have T20 format where a game can be completed in short span of time. Its ideal time for ICC to take cricket to Olympics this will help in spread of cricket because every country loves to take gold in olympics.

A final decision on whether Pakistan will host the 2023 Asia Cup is now expected in March, after an Asian Cricket Council (ACC) meeting in Bahrain failed to reach a breakthrough. They will meet again in a month's time, around the next set of ICC meetings.
Ultimately it will be hosted in UAE. Most probably Pakistan would boycott the Asia cup. I do not think they can afford to boycott ODIWC otherwise they will lose the ICC money. PCB cannot afford to lose that amount considering the present economic condition of Pakistan.
Source
If they want participate in ODI cricket, they will probably also participate in the Asia Cup. Money is not the main point in this issue, they have to do this for their reputation. Moreover, although UAE is not their own venue, they have been conducting cricket matches at that venue for a long time. They can accept that venue. However, there is still no news about the final decision. I think it will be a big disaster for them financially if they don't participate in World Cup cricket.
This is really tough for any country to leave rights of hosting any event,  just because of their lame fears how can ICC change the venue of Asia Cup. 
If all of a sudden something happened in Pakistan right before this meeting this is not their fault . These things can happen  in any country .

On other hand phone is more handy and convenient thing and you can use it anywhere you want for game or work . It's easily accessible and movable.

Seeing Zimbabwe playing a test match after a long time. The first test between Zimbabwe and West Indies is in progress at Bulawayo. West Indies have a slow start as they have made 54 runs in 27 overs (going with just 2 runs per over).
Tagenarine Chanderpaul son of legend S Chanderpaul is opening from West Indies side. He has played 2 test matches and we have yet to see century from him. It's a good chance for him to score century.
Is this part of the World Test Championship? Can't find anything regarding this.

Anyway good to know Zimbawae is getting some game time in the red ball. Chaderpaul Junior is a good bat, he scored a fair amount of runs on his last Australian tour and impressed many.
A good start from west Indies and their openers are will playing , after 48 overs they have made 103 runs which is slow but a good start.
Zimbabwe on other hand is struggling with the balling .

The second major ICC tournament of this year will start by next week. 2023 ICC Women's T20 World Cup will witness the participation from 10 countries, and will be played in South Africa from 10th to 26th February 2023 (the same venue where U-19 Women's world cup was held a few weeks back). India and Australia are the favorites to win the trophy this time, with England and South Africa also in contention. Bangladesh and Ireland have progressed from the qualifier tournament (which saw participation from 8 teams).
Ten teams and same pattern look like we are not going to have any changes in this world cup as well because from these two pools Australia, New Zealand and then England and India will be in last four others will be suffered badly against the quality of these big-4 because no other country is having better domestic set up for the women's cricket just few are now on the way for the better future but it's never been easy and also time-consuming as well.

But I am happy now we have ICC-19 women's event which is surely going to help them for increasing quality and brining better players from early ages as well in group a with New Zealand and South Africa we can expect some fight otherwise things are not good for having any good entertainment.

Honestly, I am not very interested in women's cricket. I am interested in the men's ODI world cup coming up this year. Call me and misogynist, but I do not think women's sports are interesting in general at all. In cricket, we already have a lot of cricket boards that are not very rich. That's why they are not able to produce a good team even though I think they have a lot of talent in the country. And meanwhile, we have women's cricket, which is hardly generating any revenue. Correct me if I am wrong, but I honestly do not think the ICC is getting any revenue from women's cricket. And that is probably a big reason why there is so much pressure being created for the BCCI to hold women's IPL. And that is also probably the reason why BCCI did not want to arrange women's IPL in the first place.

This is sad reality of this world that no matter how much women have achieved they'll not get equal positions and place as men and same is happening in cricket . The big 3 or bog 4 who have developed women cricket and whose league we have been following will continue to grow like this but the countries who don't have developed women cricket will remain like that.  Just the case with Afghanistan making  a women cricket team is kind of impossible for them right now.

You write incredible nonsense, sorry. Argentina is much stronger than France? That is why it could only win in the penalty shootout (twice in the tournament lol). And in any case, I'm not talking about single results - I suggest you look at more extensive statistics. Statistically, Europe is above all. And only then in the basement COMNEBOL is better than other regions, but this is only a struggle between the weak, nothing more.

I guess you didn't watched the final match between Argentina and France. For the initial 80 minutes, France was nowhere in the picture and Argentina had ball possession of 70% plus. With just 10 minutes to go towards the end of regular time, Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni made the big mistake of substituting Ángel Di María with Marcos Acuña. This allowed France to score their first goal in 80th minute and then again in 81st minute. By the end of 120 minutes, score was 3-3, but France had scored two out of that goals through penalty kicks.

The last 10 minutes and then the extra time performance saved France from complete humiliation. But it was clear that Argentina was the better team by a long distance. Since you are talking about stats, check these:

Total shots: ARG 20, FRA 10
Shots on target: ARG 10, FRA 5
Saves: ARG 2, FRA 7

I have to agree with you that Argentina showed the most during the entire world cup and in the end deservedly became the world champion.
They were dominant and better in every match, including the final match against the French, and Messi was definitely the best player at the World Cup and made the difference in every match.
Di María's early exit upset the balance of the game and helped the French get back into the match, based on the great individual quality of Mbappe but it was not enough.
Anyway, this was a great and very uncertain final but I agree that the better team won, the team that dominated most of the match.
I hope we will see Messi at the next World Cup, regardless of his age.


That's true in final of this world cup Argentina controlled the whole game they were totally over France and that's why they won the final .
France performance was not up to the mark according to final just Mbappe saved France from embarrassing defeat and scored all goals for its team.
Argentina performance brilliantly and so is Messi and they deserved this win .

In absence of Iyer, Shubman Gill is likely to bat in the middle order as he scored a ton in Bangladesh.

I guess the problem is who should be dropped from the team if some new guy comes in. Atm there are 2 nonperforming players at the Top 6 (KL Rahul and Virat), apart from them every one is scoring runs and management can't drop these 2 guys as the former is VC and the latter is undroppable.

I think Sarfraz should replace SKY in the squad but it's unfortunate that management backing SKY only because of his T-20 form.

Easwaran and Agarwal are both openers and we already have 3 openers in the team, 2 of them (Gill, Rohit) are in good form. I really like Agarwal but he's having a bad time with his form.

The first test between India and Australia will start next week, at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur. This is the venue where India piled up a 600+ total against Sri Lanka back in 2017/18. Australia played against India here only once, and that was in 2008 (India won by 172 runs).

Out of the 5 bowlers who took 5-wicket test hauls in this stadium, four have been spinners (Jason Krejza in 2008, Ravichandran Ashwin two times in 2015 and Imran Tahir also in 2015). Dale Steyn is the only pacer to do so in Nagpur. Ashwin is included in the squad this time, although I am not sure whether he will play or not. I have noticed somethign interesting. Touring spinners do have a good track record at Nagpur. but the problem for Australia is that they don't have any quality spin bowlers.
India is at best time of thier game either its any format test, ODI and T20 . They were unbeaten most of the times ,now let's see how things will be with Australia as they are stronger like India and there is going to be a tough match between these two teams.

Oh wow. I missed the India Vs. New Zealand T20I match. After Ishan Kishan Early wicket, Shubman Gill and Tripathi smashed New Zealand Bowlsers. That was an impressive inning from Shubman Gill. India made another star cricketer here. Take a bow, Mr. Shubman Gill. He turned his first T20I 50 into a century. He played only six T20Is for India and got his first T20I century against such a good team. Another Failure from Team New Zealand. It was a nightmare for them.
I myself missed this match because I was too much busy with office work yesterday but when I went to check the score of it I saw that India won by 168 runs so I guess there was no hard-nosed game in the match just boring game and I think  If India plays New Zealand, India will win every match because India is a thousand times better team than New Zealand. Because a target of 234 for 4 overs in a T20 match is a big deal,there New Zealand managed just 66 runs.
New Zealand tour of India 2023 ,New Zealand Played two Series where only 1 match They have been able to win. They have the possibility to Whitewash in both series but a victory saved them from their shameful situation. If India can hold on to their current performance, the next ODI World Cup will be approximately 90 percent for their favor. At present, I can only think Australia as one of their big opponent and no one else can come into that position.

S Gill is just a 23 year old Indian batter and they way this guys has been batting it seems by the age of 32 he might break the records set by Kholi. After his maiden 100 in T20 format he became the 5th India batter to score a century in this format. Lost interest in the match after Newzealand lost thier first wicket at a very early stage. SKY took two incredible catches yesterday at the slip. No one expected that he would be able to grab those balls.
Indian always produce mind-blowing batsman whose batting is recognised and seen by the world, we have seen various in past too like kohli , rohit sharma but now recently we have seen Suryakumar Yadav and Shubman Gill who are making records with their fierce batting  .
India balling side has improved alot in last year and this is making their team more strong and unbeaten than before.

England were able to save their face after struggling in the last two matches. As usual the English batted very well but the real reason they won the match was because of Archer. 6 wicket for just 40 runs is an incredible achievement after coming back from an injury. I hope he stays fit throughout this year and especially in the ODIWC. He is the only bowler that the English have who can easily snatch away the game from the opponent team.
Jofra Archer took 6 wickets and all important ones at right and crucial time and because of his smashing balling England won their 3rd ODI.  South Africa was good throughout the series and if Archer didn't took thier wickets SA would have won last ODI too.

The decider for India vs New Zealand T20I series will be played today, at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. New Zealand wants to achieve the rare distinction of defeating India in India. And they came really close to doing that. They won the first T20I, and then lost the second one by a whisker. The morale will be very high for them. The match will start in around 3.5 hours from now. News from the Indian camp is that Umran Malik may be back in the playing XI, in place of the useless Yuzvendra Chahal. New Zealand XI will be the same one from the second match.
Today's match is going to be a tough one and exciting too as both teams thrives to win this one for series win. India has an edge of their home ground and Newzealand T20 format I'd stronger in many ways so let's see how things will be in today's match .

lungi Ngidi brilliant bowling and England's wicket disaster

Today I thought maybe England would win their last ODI match against South Africa but that thought is starting to change. Lungi Ngidi's excellent bowling in the opening especially caused havoc in England's batting line-up. Lungi Ngidi took England's first three wickets with 7 runs in just 3 overs. Whether today's match will be dominated by England or South Africa will not be predicted without watching the full match. In my view, South Africa will win today's match and whitewash England.
This is some smashing balling by South Africa,  lungi Ngidi totally crushed England opening batting lineup . The run rate is too low till now England having trouble in collecting runs due to balling of SA.
Its too early to say but expected target might be 200 today with this sort of performance from both sides.
