T20 is a batsman’s game but bowlers aren’t mugs. They come up with their variations, the carrom ball, the slower bouncer, even the intentional half volley hoping for a mishit.

And no one does inventive batting in T20 better than AB de Villiers.
Jaydev Unadkat had a good game against the Delhi Daredevils. The lanky left arm paceman took 2/24 to help restrict Delhi to a gettable total but a stumble during Royal Challenger Bangalore’s chase saw them take the match into a Super Over before winning it. Having lost a similar game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad just a week ago, the team was elated at beating Delhi.
“What you put in is what you’ll get out” is what they say. This could not be more true than for Cheteshwar Pujara who celebrated again recently but this time with a maiden double test hundred (206*) against England in the 1st Test. He then followed it up with another hundred in the 2nd Test. Well done Puj!
Royal Challengers Bangalore have signed Prasanth Parameswaran, the left-handed paceman from Kerala, as a replacement for the injured S. Aravind.
You carry your passion deep in your heart. It’s there keeping you awake the night before a big game. It’s there massaging you after a hard fought win. You bask in the glory the next day, the warmth coming in from within. You wish there was one more way to wear your passion.
