April 2, 2011 by staff
Live Cricket Watch: Ind vs SL, After being recognized as the country’s commercial capital and entertainment hub, Mumbai has finally found international recognition as the cricket capital of the nation to reach the final host the World Cup on Saturday was played in India a second time. Long been a dominant force in domestic tournaments IC, Mumbai holds the record of success in the prestigious Ranji Trophy, winning 39 times
Mumbai has reached the Ranji final 43 times, finishing runner-up four times. For decades, it has been the main supply line of cricketers in the Indian team since the nation played their first game of a trial in 1932.NTAuMTYuMTIwLjE0Mw==
From Vijay Merchant Vijay Hazare by Vinoo Mankad, with Sunil Gavaskar and Sachin Tendulkar, Mumbai has year after year produces large international cricket have not only kept the country’s flag flying, but also provided unmitigated joy to those who know the game worldwide.
However, Bombay lost the World Cup final of 1987 with the historic Eden Gardens in Calcutta, mainly due to the capacity of Eden elderly.
Eden then had a capacity of about 90,000, which has now dropped to about, after the recent renovation.
In 1996 when the World Cup was held in the subcontinent for the second time, Mumbai was again not taken into account for the final, which was staged at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
However, April 2 was finally the big day in Mumbai with the confrontation between India and Sri Lanka for the World Cup title in 2011 at the Wankhede Stadium.
However, Wankhede with a maximum capacity of 33,000, nearly half of Eden, and the answer may be found in the change in the balance of power on the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
From mid 1990 to 2005, Jagmohan Dalmiya, the first Indian to head the International Cricket Council, controlled the board policy. Changed even after the BCCI headquarters in Calcutta after the Shiv Sena threatened to spoil a confrontation between India and Pakistan in 1999. However, things changed after Sharad Pawar took over the BCCI.
33rd over: India 170-3 (target 275; Gambhir 80, Dhoni 27) Kulasekera, who has also gone by a few, replaces Murali. That’s a counterintuitive change of Kumar Sangakkara, because you’d think he’d want your best players. Dhoni waves a couple through the covers in an envelope that returns five years. This is the best he has played in this World Cup, and while that’s not saying much, it looks great. Some players seem to be stimulated rather than intimidated by the extreme pressure, monsters, and Dhoni is definitely one of them. “This game has felt like a small test,” says Gary Naylor. “No stupid reverse sweep or Dilscoops and creating pedestrian and taking tickets, has been a priority for both parties. So much better than slogfests and endless dibbly-dobbling.” WRONG. Dame Larsen, Latham and Marshall Harris, Garner and custody of any day.
