With the win against Ireland yesterday, India sealed their 9th consecutive World Cup win – the longest World Cup winning streak for India ever. They also confirmed the top spot on the points table for Pool B.

The game began as Ireland won the toss and elected to bat. The first ten overs bowled by pacers proved to be unfruitful in terms of wickets. The Irish openers got off to a good start – they made 60 in the first 10. But as soon as the spinners came on in the tenth over, the wickets fell and so did the scoring rate.

It was a hard, bouncy pitch at the MCG – one bowlers dread because it provides neither turn for spinners nor movement for pacers. In these conditions, Captain Dhoni came out, won the toss and once again decided to bat first to set a mighty total for the Proteans to chase.

Arguably India’s best batsman and RCB captain Virat Kohli once again proved he’s a big match player by leading India to a 76-run victory against arch-rivals Pakistan in our first 2015 CWC encounter at the Adelaide Oval. Kohli eclipsed Sachin Tendulkar’s historic 98 against Pakistan at the Centurion in the 2003 edition to become the first Indian batsman to score a century against Pakistan in the World Cup. The RCBian’s 107 (126) balls enabled India in posting a competitive total of 300 and his match-winning efforts rightfully earned him the Man of the Match award.

As the first day of the third Test commenced, Australia needed to win or draw to win the Test series and India needed to win to keep their chances of saving the series alive. With this thought in their heads, the two captains went out in the middle for the toss. Steven Smith won the toss for Australia and elected to bat first.

The captain’s startling 192 along with four other 50+ scores helped Australia reach a mammoth score of 530 in their first innings. India in return started off well with Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan.
