Yuvraj singh may have broken up with Kim sharma long time ago, but he is still very possessive about her as he can’t see her in the arms of another men. His possessive streak was on display at a party where Kim sharma was getting rather cosy with Abhishek Kapoor.

He was annoyed and went up to Abhishek. A major argument ensued and Kim decided to leave the venue with Yuvraj.

Yuvraj Singh & Malinga Returns as Lanka Elect to Bat

Cuttack: Sri Lanka skipper Kumar Sangakkara has won the toss and opted to bat first in the third One-dayer against India at the Barabati stadium here on Monday.

Yuvraj Singh has returned to the team after missing the second game due to a finger injury and flu while Virat Kohli is rested. Dinesh Karthik will do the job behind the stumps in the absence of skipper MS Dhoni who is serving a two-match ban. Ishant Sharma is the other change among the hosts. The lanky fast bowler has replaced Praveen Kumar.

Lasith Malinga and N Kulasekara are back to the Sri Lankan team. The visitors have decided to retain the two spinners who played in the previous game in Nagpur as the Barabati stadium is known to favour slow bowlers.


India: Virender Sehwag (capt), Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, Gautam Gambhir, Ravindra Jadeja, Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Harbhajan Singh, Ishant Sharma, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra

Sri Lanka: Ajantha Mendis, Chamara Kapugedera, Chanaka Welegedara, Kumar Sangakkara (capt & wk), Lasith Malinga, Mahela Jayawardene, Nuwan Kulasekara, Suraj Randiv, Thilina Kandamby, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Upul Tharanga

Yuvraj Singh acknowledges the crowd during a practice

India's Yuvraj Singh acknowledges the crowd during a practice session prior to the third one day international cricket match between India and Sri Lanka, in Cuttack.

India vs Sri Lanka 3rd ODI at Cuttack – India eye to take lead in the series on flat wicket at Barabati Stadium

With M.S.Dhoni is already out of two ODI’s, Indian team not only have batting worries now but also they have to improve in all department of the game if they would like to take the lead in the on going ODI Series against Sri Lanka. Virendra Sehwag the new leader knows he has plenty of work in his hand in the absence of M.S.Dhoni when his team will meet Sri Lanka at Barabati Stadium,Cuttack.

On the other hand Sri Lanka is suffering from major set back with now Angelo Mathews ruling out for the rest of the series, with Thissara Perera flying in to take his place, and it's still uncertain whether Lasith Malinga will be risked after missing the first two games.

Yuvraj Singh who missed the first two ODI’s is most likely to fit and will most probably play in the crucial encounter against Sri Lanka in 3rd ODI. The return of Yuvraj Singh not only strengthens their batting but also provide more option for the captain Virendra Sehwag.

However the main concern for India is their fielding and because of this they have lost Nagpur T20I as well as one day internationals. The number of catches dropped has gone into double-figures, and the ground-fielding was equally dismal in the last game.

With the series leveled at 1-1, both teams will be keen to take the lead in the series to get their hand closer to the Karbon Mobile Cup. Indian team in the last game didn’t got flying start and that’s why they were short by 20-30 runs in the end at Nagpur. Sehwag and Tendulkar are in good form will be much expected from both to deliver for the team in critical situations like this.

Watch out for

Yuvraj Singh: After winning the game for India in T20I at Mohali, he is out of action from last two ODI’s. However with Dhoni out of action he will be the key man in the middle order of the Indian batting lineup.

T.Dilshan: Back to back century in two matches is enough to give headaches for the newly appointed Captain Virendra Sehwag. He is in prime form and if he continues to play like what he did in Rajkot and Nagpur, Sri Lanka will sure to take the lead by 2-1.

Pitch & Condition

The pitch at Barabati Stadium, Cuttack is expected to be another high scoring game. The curator of Pitch already indicated that the wicket will be more or less similar to the one used for the first ODI’s at Rajkot. In such scenario team winning the toss is likely to bat first and put scores on the board to put enough pressure on the chasing team.


M.S.Dhoni who will be serving two match banned will be replaced by Dinesh Karthik and Virat Kohli is likely to make a way for stylish left-hander Yuvraj Singh. Ishant Sharma is also likely to get a game in place of Praveen Kumar who hasn’t done well on a wicket which provides less movement and support for his bowling style.

Sri Lanka on the other hand has hit by injuries to some of their key players and that will be worrying sign for the Sri Lankan’s. However L.Malinga who missed the first two one day internationals is likely to get a game with Nuwan Kulasekara.

Likely Playing XI for both Teams (Match is Schedule to begin at 14:30 PMIndia Time)

India Squad: V.Sehwag (Captain), S.Tendulkar, G.Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, D.Karthik (WK), Ravinder Jadeja, H.Singh, Z.khan, A.Nehra, Ishant Sharma.

Sri Lanka Squad: Tillakaratne Dilshan, Upul Tharanga, Kumar Sangakkara (Captain & WK), Mahela Jayawardene, T.Kandamby, Sanath Jayasuriya, Suraj Randiv, Nuwan Kulasekara, Ajantha Mendis, Nuwan Kulasekara, Chanaka Welegedara.

Stats & Trivia

Barabati Stadium has been a lucky venue for India who have won eight and lost four matches here so far with one game abandoned due to rain.

Yuvraj Singh ruled out as India eye 2-0 lead News

All-rounder Yuvraj Singh has been again ruled out while opening batsman Virender Sehwag is fit as India take on Sri Lanka in the second One-Day International at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Stadium on Friday.

Yuvraj, who missed the first ODI in Rajkot with a finger fracture, is yet to recover from his injury and is also down with flu while Sehwag has recovered from the ankle injury he suffered while fielding in the last match.

After the record run feast in Rajkot, where more than 800 runs were scored for the second time in ODIs, bowlers won’t have a respite as the VCA Stadium also promises a run-friendly wicket.

Chief curator Praveen Hingnekar, however, promised that it won’t be a repeat of Rajkot, but said that a score of 300 runs or more can be achieved. Since it is a day-night match, toss will be a crucial factor.

“I expect scores of over 300 for sure. But the fast bowlers will definitely get some help early on with the new ball, and fielding first may not be a bad option,” he said.

In such a scenario, the spotlight will be again on Sehwag, who struck a whirlwind 146 in Rajkot, as India will be looking to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. There won’t be many changes in the side that won in Rajkot, but medium pacer Sudip Tyagi may make his debut in place of Praveen Kumar.

On a perfect batting track, Sri Lankans are in a spot of bother. Their two most experienced bowlers Muttiah Muralitharan and Dilhara Fernando have been ruled out with injuries. They have brought in two off-spinners, Muthumudalige Pushpakumara and Suraj Randiv in the squad in Muralitharan’s absence.

After missing out the first match due to an injury, fast bowler Lasith Malinga is likely to make a comeback to bolster the attack. Mystery spinner Ajantha Mendis can also come in as a replacement for Muralitharan.

Yuvraj Singh down with Flu! News

Sizzling southpaw Yuvraj Singh who had missed out in the first ODI at Rajkot due to a finger strain is more than likely to miss tomorrow's second ODI as well. The left hander is down with flu according to the Indian Skipper MS Dhoni.

The Indian camp is in trouble starting with Sreesanth's swine flu and the suspected infection to Gautam Gambhir along with members of the supporting staff in the recent days. The latest was the news of mental conditioning Coach Paddy Upton testing negative for the H1N1 influenza.

The good news for India is that Virender Sehwag who had twitched his knee on the Rajkot outfield has been declared fit to play tomorrow's day/night affair at Nagpur. Despite missing Yuvraj in the line up, India went onto score 414 in the first ODI at Rajkot. Virat Kohli is certain to get one more game due to the non-availability of Yuvraj.

I've warned Yuvi against calling me grandpa again Sachin

Posted: Saturday , Dec 05, 2009
New Delhi:

At 36, Sachin Tendulkar may be the oldest member of the Indian cricket team but he clearly resents being called a grandfather by his teammates.

Recently when Tendulkar celebrated his 20 years in international cricket, Yuvraj Singh had jokingly said that the veteran batsman was called a 'grandfather' in the Indian dressing room now.

"We have started calling him grandfather," Yuvraj had quipped.

Asked what he thought of the reference, Tendulkar said, "I warned him to think twice before calling me grandpa because I have many names to call him in front of the camera."

Tendulkar said even he has a few nicknames for Yuvraj but refused to specify what they might be.

"I have many names for him too, which I cannot reveal in front of the TV camera. I am not revealing them now as I am giving him a chance after my warning," he told a TV channel.

Efficient India complete 100th Test win

India 642 (Gambhir 167, Dravid 144, Sehwag 131, Herath 5-121) beat Sri Lanka 229 (Sreesanth 5-75) and 269 (Samaraweera 78*) by an innings and 144 runs 

India achieved their biggest victory against Sri Lanka and in the process clinched their 100th Test win on the fourth day of the second Test in Kanpur. India's previous best against their neighbors was a victory by an innings and 119 runs in 1994 and they bettered that with ease today. Thilan Samaraweera resisted the inevitable with an assured fifty but it was always just a matter of time before India wrapped up the game.

The only question at the start of the day was how long Sri Lanka would delay defeat. They batted positively, adding 149 runs in the first session, but India kept taking wickets at regular intervals. Samaraweera was involved in two fighting partnerships with Prasanna Jayawardene and Ajantha Mendis, which not only proved that the pitch wasn't bad for batting but also showed the top order in poor light.

India's only concern was Zaheer Khan's no-ball problems (12 in this game and 21 in the series) but he started the day by dismissing Angelo Mathews in his first over. Mathews had hit three consecutive fours, which included a pull, and Zaheer placed a man at deep square-leg and tested Mathews with more bouncers. The first was fended off in an ungainly manner and the next was top-edged to backward point where Rahul Dravid took a lunging catch.

Samaraweera proceeded to stitch together a 61-run partnership with Prasanna who, much like in the first innings, flattered to deceive. He was looking good with his cuts and sweeps but was cleaned up by an off break from round the stumps from Harbhajan Singh. It drifted away and broke back in but Prasanna left a big bat-pad gap and was bowled. Muttiah Muralitharan indulged himself with a typical hit-and-giggle knock filled with slog sweeps but fell, going for yet another big hit.

Samaraweera, who then added 73 runs with a determined Ajantha Mendis to frustrate India, was rarely troubled during his stay, the highlight of which was a whippy on-drive to a delivery on off and middle stump from Sreesanth. He rarely looked hurried, tackled the spinners and seamers and unfurled several pleasing on drives. The series now moves to Mumbai for the third Test that starts on December 2.

Scorecard and ball-by-ball details 

A thumping victory for the hosts, their 100th in Tests; they played their first in 1932-33 and won their first game in 1952 against England. The pair of Mendis and Samaraweera kept India frustrated for well over an hour but the introduction of Yuvraj Singh into the attack broke the stand. It's also their third-biggest victory (in terms of runs) in Tests. India struck an early blow this morning, getting rid of Mathews, who failed to spot a slower one. Prasanna and Samaraweera then added a half-century stand before the former fell to a beauty by Harbhajan. Herath didn't last too long, Murali entertained and left before Mendis dug in. Yuvraj, though, eventually struck, followed by Ojha, to leave Samaraweera stranded.

We'll get you the presentation details in just a bit.

Sangakkara: "It was a very good wicket. A bit in it for a few overs. It got slower and slower and made it a bit difficult to bat on. Exceptional performance by Sreesanth, great first innings by India and a poor one from us. that decided the match. We needed good partnerships; lose shots here and there, and that cost us. If the batsmen apply themselves and and occupy the crease, the the pitch is a good one to bat on. We have to be mentally strong to come back in Mumbai. We need to create chances early and take them."

Dhoni: "The wicket was quite good. Nothing even close to what we played on in Ahmedabad. The grass was kept on the track throughout. It started to turn a bit on the first day and kept a little low. It was important that we got that many runs on the first day. The changes in side brought in some fresh legs, Sreesanth is one of the best reverse swing bowlers in India. Ojha had a very good debut. It was important to win this big and gain the momentum; there will be something for the fast bowlers as well as spinners in Mumbai. It's a moment of pride for me, this 100th win, and I am honoured to be part of this side."

Sreesanth is the Man of the Match for his six-wicket match haul.

Sreesanth: "God's been kind. I have lots of people to thank. Yet to read all those messages. I'm working on my pace, am trying to get it to the 145 kmph mark, I'm feeling good. I want to thank Warwickshire and the Indian board for letting me play there, I played quite a bit of domestic cricket too and learnt a lot. There is room for improvement and I want to keep on learning. "

That's all we have from here, folks. Thanks for tuning in and sending us your feedback. Join us again for the next game on December 2, being played in Mumbai. Until then, on behalf of George Binoy and Siddarth Ravindran, this is Sid Talya signing off. Be well!

Indian cricket team observes a minute silence on the first anniversary of the Mumbai attacks

Indian cricket team observes a minute's silence on the first anniversary of the Mumbai attacks before the start of play against Sri Lanka on the third day of the second Test in Kanpur.

Yuvraj Singh hit half centuries India 639/7 Tea report

Kanpur, Nov 25 (IANS) Sri Lankan left arm spinner Rangana Herath took three wickets in the second session as India reached 639 for seven at tea on the second day of the second cricket Test at Green Park here Wednesday.

V.V.S Laxman (63) and Yuvraj Singh (66 batting) added 102 runs for the fifth wicket before the former got out trying to accelerate the scoring. India added 104 runs in the session.
Laxman, whose 121-ball knock included five fours, was dismissed as he came down the track to clear mid-off, but mistimed and holed out to Tillakaratne Dilshan.

Three overs later, Mahendra Singh Dhoni was bowled through the gates when he missed the line of a Herath (3-118) delivery.

Harbhajan Singh was out to a similar ball from Herath which turned and hit the timber.
Yuvraj played his customary shots after the lunch break, hitting four boundaries and two sixes in his 98-ball knock.

Yuvraj came to the crease just before lunch after Rahul Dravid compiled his 28th century and became Test cricket’s fourth highest scorer, surpassing former Australian captain Allan Border.
Dravid’s innings was cut short at 144 runs after he had added 59 runs to his overnight score. He was run out after backing up a bit too far as left arm spinner Herath, while attempting to stop a Laxman shot off his own bowling , palmed the ball back to the stumps.

But by then Dravid had made sure that India reached a position of strength and cashed in on the advantage of the big first day total of 417 for two that included explosive centuries from Virender Sehwag (131) and Gautam Gambhir (167).

Dravid, who pulled India out of trouble with a counter-attacking 177 in the drawn Ahmedabad Test, reached his second consecutive ton when he straight drove left arm pacer Chanaka Welegedara for a four. He played 172 balls for his 28th century and hit 10 fours.

He crossed a milestone when he took a single off Herath, surpassing Border’s aggregate of 11,174 runs to become Test cricket’s fourth highest scorer after Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara and Ricky Ponting.

Dravid now has 11,182 runs in 136 Tests at an average of 53.50.
India scored at a brisk pace and added 118 runs in 20 overs in the session. Dravid was the dominant partner in the 94-run stand with Tendulkar (40).
Dravid’s 226-ball effort had 15 fours and one six.

Sachin's debut match was against Pakistan in a test match on 1989. His one-day international (ODI) debut was on December 18 against Pakistan. His maiden ODI century came on September 9, 1994 against Australia in Sri Lanka at Colombo, just six years after his debut.

On December 11, 1988, aged just 15 years and 232 days, Tendulkar scored 100 not out in his debut first-class match for Bombay against Gujarat, making him the youngest Indian to score a century on first-class debut.

In 1995, Sachin Tendulkar married Anjali (born November 10, 1967), a paediatrician and daughter of Gujarati industrialist Anand Mehta. They have two children, Sara (born October 12, 1997), and Arjun (born September 24, 1999).


Captaincy goes, but Tendulkar the run-machine is at its best in 1998. Two of his favourites - opponents Australia and venue Chennai - come together, and the bowlers pale into insignificance as his second-innings 155 turns a deficit into a match-winning total. Later, a certain Mr. Shane Warne suffers from nightmares

At the same ground in 1999, the first sign his body is suffering. In spite of a back injury, Tendulkar scores a masterful 136. India, though, fall short by 16 runs against Pakistan, and a poor fourth-innings record remains a blot in Tendulkar's CV

Even the Don takes note of Tendulkar's batting, and says the Indian batsman's style resembles him the most among those from the modern era. Tendulkar's tour of Australia in 1999-2000 - he's captain as well - is not in keeping with high expectations, with a few rough decisions coming his way

He yet tops the batting charts for India. India's hopes fade whenever he departs, and the captain cuts a lone figure as his team loses all three Tests. He steps down from captaincy during South Africa's visit in 2000

Tendulkar makes 10 in both innings, but he picks up three wickets in the Australia's second innings as India win the epic Test at Eden Gardens in 2001 to level the series

India and Tendulkar have an unsuccessful tour of New Zealand in 2002-03. The team begins the 2003 World Cup in South Africa under pressure; however, they make it to the final with Tendulkar the Player of the Tournament

A workmanlike innings in Sydney during the 2003-04 Australia tour helps Tendulkar to his first double-century overseas. His unbeaten scores of 241 and 60 - in Steve Waugh's farewell Test - almost results in a series win

Another 10,000: During his 52 against Pakistan in the Kolkata Test in 2005, Tendulkar becomes the first to score 10,000 runs in both Tests and ODIs
At home in Australia: The crowds are entertained as Tendulkar makes two hundreds in the four-Test series in 2007-08. India lose 2-1, but Tendulkar goes home a happy man, scoring 117 not out and 91 as India beat Australia in the finals to clinch the tri-nation one-day tournament

Playing a Test in Pakistan after nearly 15 years, Tendulkar scores an unbeaten 194 - a declaration denies him the double. However, it's Virender Sehwag - who developed with Tendulkar as a role model - who steals the show in Multan, becoming the first Indian triple-centurion

Captaincy comes calling, and Tendulkar leads India to a win in the one-off home Test against Australia to bag the newly instituted Border-Gavaskar Trophy, named after two players he would eventually join in the 10,000-run club

A special win: Tendulkar holds the trophy after India beat England 1-0 during their 2007 tour, his first series victory outside the subcontinent

Come Chennai and he's back to his best. Makes a hundred in the first innings as India win a memorable series 2-1

At home in Australia: The crowds are entertained as Tendulkar makes two hundreds in the four-Test series in 2007-08. India lose 2-1, but Tendulkar goes home a happy man, scoring 117 not out and 91 as India beat Australia in the finals to clinch the tri-nation one-day tournament

Playing a Test in Pakistan after nearly 15 years, Tendulkar scores an unbeaten 194 - a declaration denies him the double. However, it's Virender Sehwag - who developed with Tendulkar as a role model - who steals the show in Multan, becoming the first Indian triple-centurion

He's out stumped for the only time in his career, in Bangalore, but Tendulkar is still the best batsman on show and the Player of the Series as India win 1-0

As captain on the 1999-2000 tour of Australia, Sachin Tendulkar practises his bowling - but he struggles as a leader

Sachin now holds the record for having taken most one-day runs (17000+) and centuries (45).
Highest Score - 186*. He belongs to the group of rare sportsmen and his records might never be broken. Sachin Tendulkar has also captained India for few years.
