It’s first test match and Bangladesh will be ready to face Sri-Lanka at Galle. And we should remember that Bangladesh side has improved a lot in last few years with some talented players have joined the side.

Sri-Lanka will be having new Captain Rangana Herath as Angelo Mathews is injured. Gunaratne and Dickwella has been included in the test squad due to their recent performances but Kusal Perera and Kaushal Silva could not make it due to their poor form. Malinda Pushpakumara added to the squad and is very good bowler (spin) but he will play or not the question remains as their are many bowlers who are more experienced than him like Dilruwan Perera and Lakshan Sandakan.

Mustafizur Rahman is up and fit as he struggled during test series against India due to injuries and bowling attach will be more powerful with Shakib, Mehedi Hasan, Taskin and Rubel. Its a subcontinent pitch and it supports spin so match would be interesting and both the teams are sort of equal with Sri Lanka leading lil bit due to Herath. But Bangladesh has Strong bowling lineup as well… Phewww… I hope it gets as interesting as India Aussie match. Liton Das will be the wicket keeper for Bangladesh as Mushfiqur Rahim has given up the WK and will be playing as specialist batsman. Imrul Kayes is out due to injury but he may be available for 2nd test though it is not sure as injury is not so series. Choice to be made between Mahmudullah and Sabbir Rahman.

It’s a decider match between Southern Stars and White Ferns. Australia showed brilliant all round performance in the last match. B. Mooney in form made 57, while Lanning and Blackwell built the innings made the score too easy to chase. Blackwell being the top scorer made a come back after century with a half century and sent a strong message. Wellington and Farrell took 3-2 wickets but Perry who got injured in between could not come to bat and took only 1 wicket. And picture is still not clear if she will play in decider or not but as per news coming out she will probably play as she is the most imp play in the team.

In New Zealand, as expected the Satterthwaite performed and made being the top scorer of the match could not save New Zealand from loss. Martin and Perry did show some intent but could not stay longer. Kerr being the highest wicket taker who took 4 wickets and surprised everyone specially Australian and she is just 16.

The most talented and experienced player of UAE Shaiman Anwar did not perform but he could return to his form on Saturday where UAE will be needing his experience to win the match to equal the three match series with 1-1. Raza and Haider went very expensive in their spells with no success. Lots of will be expected from Anwar, Raza and Usman who failed to perform in the 1st match.

After a disastrous loss in 1st Test, India is moving to fight yes fight in 2nd test with more vigor and hope Kohli and team is prepared.

Australia announced unchanged team. India may make some changes Karun Nair or Bhuvi  may replace Ishant but uncertainty remains as there is no conformity on it. Kohli has already praised Jayant Yadav so he is unlikely to be axed. Rahane will remain in the team and the only half century scorer in 1st Test KL Rahul will open with Murli Vijay. As it it KL Rahul’s home ground so lots of expectation from him and he has even worked harder in the nets as well.

Pitch is dry but good for batting as usual Bangalore pitch. At start it will support pacers but lately spinners will surely come into picture.

It’s the 5th one day international match and a decider after a thrilling innings by Martin Guptill in the last match. Final match is in Auckland, Eden Park and pitch seems to be supporting the spinners but its a true wicket at the start it will surely support pacers.

Andile Phehlukway injured in the last match but he is fit and can replace Morris who did not perform as expected in last two matches and may be Tabraiz Shamsi get a chance to play. David Miller and JP Duminy could not help to built innings which put undue pressure on first four batsmen. Finally in the series we saw runs coming out of Faf’s bat and this match may be the big one for him as he hasn’t yet performed. ABD superb as always but its finals and one man can not win.

With Guptill superb 180, Taylor made 66 runs and once again he showed why he is one of the best. Jeetan Patel threw a twist to the match by taking 2 wickets and Eden Park’s pitch surely going to support his bowling, Santner and Neesham as usual contributed with the ball by taking 1 wicket each. Southee was very expensive in last few matches though he has been taking wicket in every match in the series.Ferguson may get a chance to replace either Patel or Southee

New Zealand continues the winning form and started the series with a win. After brilliant performances by Bates, Satterthwaite, Tahuhu and Huddleston  New Zealand registered a win by 5 wickets.

Mooney’s century went in vain,  Haynes and Villani fifty could not do much to save the game. Except couple of wickets by Wellington with decent economy none of the Australian bowlers did anything different to save the game.

South Africa vs New Zealand (4th ODI)

Guptill is back. He has joined the New Zealand squad for the rest of the two odi matches and expected to open with Brownlie. After the collapse of NZ batting in 3rd ODI they must be thinking to make some changes in the team. In last match Ferguson replaced Sodhi but did not perform well and went expensive, Matt Henry might be another option to replace Ferguson. Jeetan Patel has been included in the squad seeing the turning nature of the pitch and might get a chance above Sodhi.

Tom Lathan and Neil Broom likely to be axed for the 4th ODI because of their continuous dismal performance so far in the series which could give a chance to Luke Ronchi.

RSA players must be pretty much warmed up, motivated after getting huge win over NZ in the last match and they will look to win the series instead of making 5th ODI as the decider. So far Kock has been performing very well, consecutive 50 in last two matches and this could be the match to mark 100. Amla and Faf both the players are not in form and it hardly takes a fraction of second for these classy players to start performing. ABD has always been a remarkable.

Morris dropped last time and Parnell was retained. May be this time Morris will come but not at the expense of Parnell who performed really well in the last match. Kasigo Rabada is fit and will prove his fitness before the match and most likely to be included in the team. But just like New-Zealand, South Africa has also started bowlers rotation policy.

Pitch looks like giving some aid to spinners so NZ might give a chance to Jeetan Patel or Ish Sodhi and Tahir may regain its lost charm in this series. South Africa may be looking towards Tabraiz Shamsi but he will be replacing whom? The question remains unanswered

Possible Lineup 1: Kock(wk), ABD, Amla, Williamson, Taylor, Guptill, Pretorius, Santner, Boult, Southee, Parnell/Phehlukwayo.

Possible Lineup 2: Kock(wk), ABD, Miller/Duminy, Williamson, Taylor, Guptill, Pretorius, Santner, Boult, Southee, Tahir/Rabada.

CAP: Williamson/ABD

VC: Taylor/Pretorius

Peshawar Zalmi vs Quetta Gladiators (1st Qualifying Final)

They are meeting again to renew their rivalry and Peshawar Zalmi will look to avenge their defeat from the corresponding fixture from last season. Both the teams have finished in the Top Two for the second successive year in the PSL.

They have played each other 5 times so far and head to head stands at 2-2 with one game getting washed out.

Quetta have a batting unit which is in much better form as compare to Peshawar. Rossouw and Pieterson are among the top five rungetters in the tournament. Now the responsibility is more on the openers Asad Shafiq and Ahmed Shehzad which are really very inconsistent.

Mahmudullah, Shakib, Tamim and Perera has left for international duties so will not be available for knockouts. Chris Jordan and Dawid Malan are expected to be in the side.

Possible Lineup 1: Sarfraz Ahmad (wk), Samuels, Malan/Afridi, Pieterson, Rossouw, Hafeez, Nawaz/Riaz, Jordon, Hassan Khan, Hasan Ali, Mills

Possible Lineup 2: Kamran Akmal (wk), Samuels, Shafiq/Shehzad, Pieterson, Rossouw, Hafeez, Afridi/Riaz, Jordon, Hassan Khan, Hasan Ali, Mills

Cap: Akmal/Pieterson

VC: Rossouw/Hafeez

One can opt for M. Asghar also to make bowling more stronger, he took 3 wickets in last game though he went bit expensive. Except last match his PSL season till now is not so much to cherish about.

Well we can’t rule out the option of Samit Patel’s chances and this could be the first match for him but Jordan has more probability to play because he has already played few matches and performed well.

Latest Update:

# Peshawar twitter page: it seems Jordon will play most likely and Samit Patel joins Peshawar ahead of the clash.
