Sunil Narine Included in Windies' World Cup Squad, Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard Ignored



St John's: Offspinner Sunil Narine was recalled by the West Indies for the Cricket World Cup on Saturday after his bowling action was doubted by Indian officials.

Jason Holder, who will captain the side for the first time in the upcoming one-day international series in South Africa, will lead the team in the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand next month. But his predecessor Dwayne Bravo, and Kieron Pollard, who share more than 250 ODIs, missed out.

Narine was withdrawn from the ill-fated tour of India after his action was considered suspect by Indian umpires during the Champions League Twenty20 in September. He was ranked No. 2 in the world ODI and T20 rankings at the time.

Medium-pacers Sheldon Cottrell and Jonathan Carter, who will make their debuts in South Africa, were also chosen.

"We have a good mixture of some good seasoned players and some good youngsters," Clive Lloyd, the chairman of selectors, said.

"If they play to their potential I am quite sure we will do very well. I have really high hopes in this team - I believe they can do something special. We have the talent and if we can play to our potential we have a very good chance of lifting that trophy."

The West Indies opens its World Cup campaign on Feb. 16 against Ireland in Nelson, New Zealand.

ICC Cricket World Cup 2015: Squads by the Numbers

More than 200 of the world’s best cricketers will do battle for the ICC Cricket World Cup from 14 February next month. Now that the 14 teams have finally been revealed, here is a look at the squads by the numbers:



210 – The total number of players who will take part in the tournament.
 
43 – The age of the oldest player named, United Arab Emirates vice-captain Khurram Khan. The 43-year-old was born on June 21, 1971, edging out the tournament’s second oldest player, his teammate and captain Mohammad Tauqir, who turns 43 on January 14.
 
18 – The age of the youngest player named, Afghanistan’s 18-year-old Usman Ghani, who was born on November 20, 1996. The youngest person to ever play in a World Cup was Canada’s Nitish Kumar, who was 16 during the 2011 tournament.
 
33 – The most experienced World Cup player set to play in this year’s tournament is Sri Lanka’s Mahela Jayawardene, who has played 33 matches across the 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2011 tournaments.




5 – The number of 2015 players who have previously tasted World Cup glory: India’s MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina (all part of the 2011 winning XI) and Australia’s Michael Clarke and Shane Watson (part of the 2007 winning XI). Ravichandran Ashwin was in India’s 2011 squad, and Mitchell Johnson and Brad Haddin were part of Australia’s 2007 squad, but the trio did not play in their country’s winning finals – ensuring they will be hungrier than ever for success in 2015.
 
991 – Kumar Sangakkara has scored 991 World Cup runs for Sri Lanka in 30 matches across the 2003, 2007 and 2011 tournaments, making him the highest run-scorer heading into the 2015 event.
 
83.63 – Australia skipper Michael Clarke’s average in World Cup matches. In 15 innings, Clarke has scored 669 runs and has a strike rate of 93.57. It’s the highest average of any 2015 player, and the third highest of all time. The next highest current player on the list is Clarke’s teammate Shane Watson, who has averaged 62.14 in his 12 Cup innings.




31 – Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga has snared 31 wickets in his 15 World Cup matches, including his best numbers of 6-38.  He enters the 2015 event with the most World Cup wickets of any current player.
 
17.87 – Malinga also has the lowest World Cup average out of all of the bowlers named for the 2015 tournament. He is fourth on the all-time lowest averages list.
 
46 – Sangakkara also enters the 2015 World Cup with the most dismissals by a wicketkeeper, having taken 36 catches and executed 10 stumpings. He only needs seven more dismissals to leap ahead of Adam Gilchrist on the all-time World Cup ‘keeper list.
 
2 – The number of players who have played for more than one country at the Cricket World Cup, who are playing at #cwc15. Both have played for Ireland and England, with Ed Joyce representing England in 2007 and Ireland in 2011 & now 2015, whilst Eoin Morgan has conversely represented Ireland in 2007, but was playing for England four years later in 2011 and will captain England’s Squad in 2015.
 
14 – The number of teams competing for the 2015 Cricket World Cup, including first-timers Afghanistan.
 
49 – The number of matches to be played between February 14 and the final on March 29.
 
23 - the number of years since Australia and New Zealand last hosted the ICC Cricket World Cup
 
14 – The number of host cities across Australia and New Zealand.

1 - One champion will be crowned on 29 March 2015 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground

Pakistan Can Beat India in World Cup, Says Umar Akmal



Pakistani batsman Umar Akmal on Wednesday, said all the players have high hopes about the performance in their World Cup opener against India Feb 15 in Adelaide. (World Cup 2015: Who's ready and who's not)

"We will try to perform our best against India. If we continue with the same form we are sure to emerge victorious," Umar was quoted as saying by dawn.com. (World Cup 2015 Full squads)

About a popular belief that Pakistani players lose their ground in major events against powerful teams such as India, he said he was equally surprised why the team ends up failing against its neighbours.

He hopes the upcoming World Cup will see an end to this custom, adding that the confidence being provided by team management and coaches has been a morale booster.

The 24-year-old is also looking at the World Cup to redeem himself as the prodigious batting talent that he has looked like even though the instances have been few and far between.

ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 Warm Up Matches



A series of warm up matches in the second week of February will provide the first clues to form for many of the teams taking part in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 – and provide a chance for fans away from the tournament venues to see some of the stars of the game in action.

A total of 14 warm-up matches will be played from 8 to 13 February in Adelaide, Christchurch, Melbourne and Sydney. Venues include Adelaide Oval, Hagley Oval in Christchurch, the Sydney Cricket Ground and the Melbourne Cricket Ground, all of which are hosting matches in the tournament proper.

Warm up matches will also be played at the following non-tournament venues:

Lincoln Oval outside Christchurch.

The public will be welcome to attend warm up matches which will be ticketed but free of charge. Tickets can be obtained by following the links below and should be printed at home and brought to the ground.

The range of activities and spectator experiences in and around warm up venues will in most cases be less than what is provided during the World Cup itself.

Warm up tickets are only available online and delivered as a Print at Home email PDF ticket.

India vs Pakistan, ICC World Cup 2015: Are Pakistan feeling the pressure due to winless record over arch-rivals?



With less than a month to go for the ICC World Cup 2015, there has been a lot of talk about the India-Pakistan contest. While there have been little or no comments from the Indian side, Pakistan’s current and former players have already commenced the pre-match chatter. Nishad Pai Vaidya writes that Pakistan may already be feeling the pressure for the big game, as they have never beaten India in the World Cup.

If one goes through the record books, one would find that Pakistan have had an upper hand over India in One-Day Internationals (ODIs). In 126 encounters, Pakistan have been victorious on 72 occasions — a stat that clearly reflects their dominance over their arch rivals. However, the tables turn around drastically in the World Cup, where Pakistan continue to search for that elusive victory. In five encounters at the 50-over World Cup, India have beaten on Pakistan on five occasions. And in the World T20, India have been victorious in all the three encounters. Is this record starting to play on the Pakistani minds?

Over the last few days, there have been many comments from the current and former Pakistan players about their World Cup opener against India. With all the talk in their press about this big game, the players have been left with no option but voice their opinions and endeavours ahead of the big clash. Misbah-ul-Haq said Pakistan want to change history. Younis Khan said he wants a ton in a winning cause. Inzamam-ul-Haq hopes Pakistan beat India and has advised the players to be calm. Umar Akmal has also expressed optimism, while newbies Haris Sohail and Mohammad Irfan are eager to face the arch-rivals. Compare this to the other side, and there is hardly any comment from India.

The fact that there is so much talk ahead of the game shows that it is clearly on their minds. It is almost as if the Pakistan cricketers have been asked about that particular game at every press meet or interaction. They are carrying the heavy baggage of never beating India in the World Cup and that may start to play on their minds. Pakistan need to come into the big event with a fresh and a positive frame of mind. However, if they are continuously asked questions about the India game, or the players themselves speak about it, it will only add to the pressure.

Across the border, the Indian fans have always been in awe of the Pakistan team’s fighting ability. In numerous encounters, Pakistan have won games from absolutely hopeless situations and have stunned India. The memories linger as the crowd and the player are wary of that inherent fighting spirit. Unfortunately, that spirit fizzles out in World Cup clashes. It is not so much about ability, as much as it is about the psychology. With each passing World Cup, the pressure only increases. They need that victory to release it for their successors in years to come.

Psychological baggage is never easy to shed in sport. But, a team eventually does at some point. The wait could be long and painful, but not eternal. At some point, Pakistan will manage a victory in the World Cup. Not when they are under pressure!

World Cup 2015 Match 1 Preview: New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Group A





Date: Feb 14, 2015  Time: 0330 IST
Venue: Hagley Oval, Christchurch

World Cup 2015 Match 1 Preview: New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Group A: The beautiful Hagley Oval in Christchurch will mark the beginning of the World cup 2015 on Saturday, with the match between Group A teams SriLanka and the hosts New Zealand.

Both the teams come fresh off a series against each other that was held in New Zealand. New Zealand won the series 4-2, thanks to the performances of Ross Taylor, Kane Williamson, Luke Ronchi and the efforts of their bowlers Mitchell McClenaghan and Trent Boult.

Whereas for the Lankans, the series showed that the veterans Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene and Tillakaratne Dilshan still hold the Sri Lankan batting together, while the young are still to rise to the occasion.

Sri Lanka

Srilanka has been the bridesmaid for 2 occasions now, losing to Australia in the 2007 World cup finals and India in the 2011 World cup final. Though they broke the jinx in the World T20 final in 2014 by defeating India in the finals, they know they have to work extra hard to cross the finish lines as the winner.

The strength of their squad is the experience they have in the batting department with the names of Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene and Tillakaratne Dilshan. Also the experience of Rangana Herath, Nuwan Kulasekara and Lasith Malinga (if fit) will lend the perfect support to their batting.

The Weakness lies in the top order and the bowling department for the team. There is no suitable opener to partner Dilshan and there is no decent enough spinner to lend support to Herath.

New Zealand

The Kiwis are on the top right now with wins over Sri Lanka and Pakistan at home. Their batting is clicking and the bowling is looking as lethal as ever. The batting is held together very well by the very in form Kane Williamson and the destructive Captain McCullum. They are ably supported by Ross Taylor, Luke Ronchi, Martin Guptill and all-rounders Corey Anderson and Tim Southee.

The bowling will be led by the experienced Kyle Mills, Tim Southee and the young tear away Adam Milne. The spin department is in the safe hands of Daniel Vettori- who is playing his final World cup and Nathan McCullum.

They will certainly be looking to get a head start against the 2 time runners-up Sri Lanka as they have the edge against them, but they will be looking to strengthen their opening. Sri Lankans have their problems as Lasith Malinga may not be fully fit.

Last 5 ODIS:
NZ: W.W.L.W.W
SL: W.L.L.L.N/R

Past records aside, the match is surely going to be a cracker of a game between one side which is playing in it den and other who has the experience to take them down.

Possible playing XI:
SL: Angelo Mathews (capt), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Mahela Jayawardene, Lahiru Thirimanne, Dinesh Chandimal,Thisara Perera, Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Kulasekara, Rangana Herath.

NZ: Brendon McCullum (capt), Corey Anderson, Grant Elliott, Martin Guptill, Mitchell McClenaghan, Kyle Mills, Luke Ronchi (wk), Trent Boult, Ross Taylor, Daniel Vettori, Kane Williamson
