Just days after fellow RCB teammates Virat Kohli and Vijay Zol won top honours at the CEAT cricket awards, RCB stalwart AB de Villiers was adjudged the South African Cricketer of the Year last night. De Villiers pipped new South African Test captain Hashim Amla, Dale Steyn, JP Duminy and Quinton de Kock for the award.
RCB captain Virat Kohli was adjudged the CEAT International Cricketer of the Year in the 17th CEAT cricket awards. While he scored a healthy 359 runs for RCB in the just concluded IPL, Kohli has also been in tremendous touch in the international circuit over the last few years. The premier Indian batsman had previously won the prestigious award in the 2011-12 season.

The Royal Challengers had a disappointing day at Abu Dhabi, posting just 70 on their debut at the ground and losing the game against the Rajasthan Royals by 6 wickets.
More often than not, Yuvraj Singh is seen as the poster boy of T20 in India. It is to do with his knock in 2007 in the T20 world cup. All hell broke loose when he hit Stuart Broad for 6 sixes in the final match of the first ever T20 World Cup. But overall, being the athlete and fighter that Yuvraj is, he is synonymous with this nascent format of the game.
Offers amateur cricketers an opportunity to play on the big stage.
Karnataka is known to produce quality bowlers who have further shone in their career for India at the international level. Although, India has always been a spin-friendly country, it has also given birth to promising fast bowlers with the zest to succeed on the big stage.
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. Batsmen have to be on the top of their game all the time, figuring out new ways to hit the ball and new parts of the ground to hit them to. 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.
