  Brad Hodge appointed KXIP head coach
Posted by: nairrk - 12-14-2017 03:40 PM - No Replies

Brad Hodge has been appointed as the head coach of IPL side Kings XI Punjab. Hodge will report to former KXIP player Virender Sehwag, who now serves as the franchise's Director of Cricket.

Hodge, 42, is among the most sought-after personnel in T20 cricket for his immense body of work in the shortest format of cricket. He is one of just eight cricketers to aggregate more than 7000 runs in T20 cricket and remains an active player in franchise cricket. He will turn out for Melbourne Renegades in the forthcoming season of the Big Bash League.

Hodge occupied a similar coaching role with the now-defunct Gujarat Lions franchise. In his first season as coach, he guided the team to the top spot in the league phase of the tournament. Injuries hampered the Lions' season in IPL 2017 as they finished second from last, having picked up only four wins through the league phase.

At Kings XI, Hodge will be tasked with reversing a sorry statistic that has Kings XI as one one of only three original franchises (Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils the others) to have never won the IPL. Under Sanjay Bangar as head coach, the team made the finals of the 2014 season before falling away once more in the next two years. Bangar stepped down in 2016 with Sehwag taking over in a coaching-cum-mentoring role for 2017.

It was in February 2010 when history was made in men's ODI cricket as Sachin Tendulkar became the first to score a double hundred - 200* vs South Africa in Gwalior

[Image: when-virender-sehwag-became-th.jpg]
When Virender Sehwag became the second double centurion in ODI cricket in December 2011, Rohit Sharma was batting at the other end - 219 vs West Indies in Indore.

[Image: in-november-2013-rohit-sharma.jpg]
In November 2013, Rohit Sharma took a liking to the Australian attack as he carted them around the Chinnaswamy stadium to become the third Indian to score a double hundred - 209 vs Australia in Bengaluru

[Image: in-november-2014-rohit-sharma.jpg]
In November 2014, Rohit Sharma registered the highest individual score in ODIs - 264 vs Sri Lanka in Kolkata.

[Image: chris-gayle-was-the-first-non.jpg]
Chris Gayle was the first non-Indian to score a double ton, during the 2015 World Cup - 215 vs Zimbabwe in Canberra.

[Image: west-indies-were-at-the-receiv.jpg]
West Indies were at the receiving end of a second double ton as Martin Guptill powered New Zealand into the semi-final - 237* vs West Indies in Wellington.

Rohit Sharma became the first to score three double tons when he tore apart a Sri Lankan attack - 208* vs Sri Lanka in Mohali.

  Playing conditions confirmed for four-day Test
Posted by: nairrk - 12-14-2017 09:01 AM - No Replies

The ICC's template for four-day Test matches has been confirmed ahead of the inaugural clash between South Africa and Zimbabwe on Boxing Day, with a minimum of 98 overs per day written into the playing conditions. The regulation means that a total of 392 overs could be bowled in the match - only 58 less than is the case in five-day Tests.

An extra half-hour of play is expected to allow for the additional eight overs each day. The extra time will be folded into the first two sessions of the day, which will comprise two and a quarter hours each.

The other major change sees the follow-on reduced from 200 runs to 150 runs, which should assist dominant teams who are pushing for a result.

Otherwise the conditions remain similar to five-day Tests, with 30 minutes of overtime available each day to make up overs if required, and two intervals spanning a combined 60 minutes.

Because the match between South Africa and Zimbabwe is a day-night affair, the tea interval will be 20 minutes long while supper will be a 40-minute interval. That match is scheduled to start at 1.30 pm each day. Sunset will take place around 7.45pm in Port Elizabeth at that time of year, shortly after the final session gets underway.

The concept of four-day Tests is far from universally popular, but has been embraced by many administrators as a way to make the Test game more attractive and commercially viable. In October the ICC board approved a trial of four-day Tests that will run through until the 2019 World Cup.
