Justice Mukul Mudgal committee’s final report, which had been submitted to the Supreme Court on Monday, has reportedly named a key member of India’s World Cup-winning team and mentioned his links with illegal bookies and match fixers.
Australia will reportedly play against Zimbabwe for the first time in a decade in a one-day international tri-series in August, despite the African nation`s terrible playing standards and shocking cricket mismanagement.
Most of the Indian players who were the backbone of the team are no more being part of Team India. Big names like Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh are struggling to make a comeback in the Indian side.
Virender Sehwag slammed the media for ‘twisting’ his comments to ‘make it newsworthy’ hours after his earlier comments that indicated captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not the reason for World Cup triumphs but a strong Indian team.
The latest comments from Indian opener Virender Sehwag don't suggest all is well in the Indian dressing room. The swashbuckling batsman took a dig at captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Friday to suggest that the split is still wide open.
President Pratibha Patil credited South African cricketing legend Garry Kirsten for coaching the Indian cricket team to World Cup glory last year, drawing loud cheers, including from her South African counterpart Jacob Zuma.
