      England Tour an Opportunity for India to Rise in ICC Test Rankings

      Depending upon the outcome of the five-Test series, both India and England can go as high as number three or drop to as low as number seven in the ICC Test rankings.



      Dubai: The Indian cricket team has a chance to go up a rung and be third in the ICC rankings if it beats England in the upcoming five-Test series starting July 9

      As things stand at present, India occupy fourth position with 102 ratings points, while England are a spot behind with 100 ratings points

      Depending upon the outcome of the Test series, both teams can go as high as number three or drop to as low as number seven

      For India, the equation is straightforward -- a series win will be sufficient to help it leapfrog Pakistan into third position, the ICC said in a statement.

      However, a vault up the rankings is a bit trickier for England, who need to win the series by a difference of no less than two Tests to take on the third place. Victory by just one Test will help them swap places with India.

      Meanwhile, both teams can potentially drop to number seven. If India win all five Tests, Alastair Cook's side will plummet to seventh position, while a 4-1 series result will see England slip to sixth. Conversely, if England win the series 4-0 or better, India will drop to seventh spot.

      Movement is also expected on the Reliance ICC Player Rankings for Test Batsmen.

      India's Cheteshwar Pujara, static in seventh place, will have the opportunity to break into the top five, while Virat Kohli, who currently occupies 10th position, will have the chance to consolidate his place in the top 10.

      Pujara trails fifth-ranked Shivnarine Chanderpaul by 35 ratings points, while Kohli needs 16 ratings points to both move ahead of Ross Taylor of New Zealand and also break the 800-point barrier.

      Ian Bell, in 18th place, is the only batsman from England to find a place among the top 20.

      Outside the top 20, batsmen likely to be seen in action from both the sides are Alistair Cook (21st), Joe Root (26th), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (29th), Matt Prior (32nd), Rohit Sharma (33rd), Murali Vijay (42nd), Ajinikya Rahane (45th) and Shikhar Dhawan (50th).

      Gary Ballance and Sam Robson, who did well for England against Sri Lanka, are in 83rd and 94th places, respectively.

      India's Ravichandran Ashwin, in seventh position, is the highest-ranked bowler from either side in the Reliance ICC Player Rankings for Test Bowlers. James Anderson (12th) and Stuart Broad (14th) are the other bowlers to feature inside the top 20.

      Other bowlers to watch out for are Ishant Sharma (23rd), Ravindra Jadeja (26th), Mohammed Shami (33rd), Ben Stokes (46th), Liam Plunkett (50th), Bhuvneshwar Kumar (73rd) and Chris Woakes (118th).

      BCCI wins: No DRS for India-England Test series



      Nottingham, July 8: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has got its way on the controversial Umpire Decision Review System (DRS) for the India-England five-Test series which starts tomorrow here. BCCI, which has never been a fan of DRS, has managed to score over England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). There will be no use of DRS in the Test series. This is the first series for India after the revamp of International Cricket Council (ICC) where the "Big Three" of BCCI, ECB and Cricket Australia (CA) have the control over the global cricket body. For bilateral series, both Boards need to agree for the use of DRS. However, for all ICC tournaments, DRS is mandatory. The first Test starts on Wednesday at Trent Bridge and the on-field umpires' decisions will be final. There is no way of batsmen and fielders challenging their verdicts. Sri Lanka's Kumar Dharmasena and Bruce Oxenford of Australia are the umpires. England's paceman Stuart Broad, when asked about the non-availability of DRS for the series, said: "It will add a little bit of pressure to the umpires. They'll have to really take their time to get decisions right." During the 2011 India-England series here, DRS was used but not for LBWs.

      Umpires Have the Final Say in England vs India Series

      The Decision Review System will not be in operation throughout the five-Test series between England and India, which starts at Nottingham's Trent Bridge on Wednesday



      Nottingham: Something rather strange, by modern standards, will happen when either Australia's Bruce Oxenford or Sri Lanka's Kumar Dharmasena raises his finger in the first Test between England and India.

      For any batsman seeing the time-honoured signal confirming his dismissal will be unable to challenge the decision, just as the fielding side will have no way of overturning a call of "not out".

      That is because the controversial Decision Review System will not be in operation throughout the five-Test series, which starts at Nottingham's Trent Bridge on Wednesday

      While standardised playing conditions apply during an International Cricket Council tournament such as the one-day World Cup, for "bilateral series" they are a matter of agreement between the two teams.

      And with India responsible for some two-thirds of world cricket's global income, on account of the mass enthusiasm for the sport in the world's second-most populous nation, there was never any danger of their wishes being ignored on this tour.

      That is especially true now since this is the first series between two of cricket's 'big three nations' of India, England and Australia following their effective takeover of the ICC.

      While DRS exists to eliminate 'howlers' by on-field officials, it was responsible for arguably the most contentious decision in an Anglo-Indian match of recent times.

      During a 2011 World Cup clash in Bangalore, England's Ian Bell was given not out by Billy Bowden after India spinner Yuvraj Singh appealed for lbw.

      But Yuvraj was certain Bell was out and persuaded India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni to request a review.

      Replays on the giant screen at the ground indicated the ball had struck Bell in line and was going on to hit the stumps.

      Bell started to walk off but was sent back after it emerged he'd been hit on the pad more than 2.5 metres down the pitch, a distance from which Hawkeye tracking technology is said to be unreliable.

      As a result, the decision reverted to Bowden and the New Zealander upheld his original not out verdict.

      The match ended in a thrilling tie, with Dhoni voicing his displeasure afterwards at Bell's reprieve.

      However, former India spinner Ravi Shastri, a member of the ICC's cricket committee, insisted last week: "It's just a myth that the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) and India are opposed to DRS.

      "They want technology to be consistent."

      Shastri added the third umpire, not the players, should be the person to decide when to use DRS.

      "I want it taken away from the players. Let the third umpire do it -- give him the technology that works," said Shastri, the BCCI's leading television commentator.

      At present, teams are restricted to a maximum of two unsuccessful reviews every 80 overs of a Test innings.

      But Shastri added: "Why have only two reviews? It shouldn't be a case of a you having no reviews left and the Test match ending with an even bigger howler."

      England seamer Stuart Broad, whose Test hat-trick against India at Trent Bridge in 2011 might not have come to pass if DRS as presently constituted had been in operation then, was intrigued as to how its absence would affect the upcoming series.

      "It will add a little bit of pressure to the umpires," he said. "They'll have to really take their time to get decisions right."

      Default 1st est : Day 1 Update

      India : 259/4 After 90 overs, Day 1 Stumps

      India have won the toss and elected to bat first, Stuart Binny is making his Test Debut in the place of Rohit Sharma


      * India 33/1 after 7 overs

      Shikhar Dhawan and Murli Vijay opened the batting for the Indian team and they got the team off to a fantastic strat with Vijay scoring three boundaries in the very first over of the bowling of James Anderson. With the ball providing limited movement and the batsmen looking relaxed at the crease, the score has been moving along in a steady manner with minimum risk taken, Until Shikhar Dhwan fell to a lovely change in length from Anderson and was caught behind the wickets by Matt Prior.

      India will face the English team in the first test at Nottingham and if we go by what the early signs suggest, this might just be a series that will develop the two participating nation’s future teams. While India will be looking to avenge their miserable defeats last time around, England have a side that has faced scrutiny on multiple occasions; be it their captain of their defensive style of play and would to overcome their critics by repeating the result of the series from 2011.

      When India was in their backyard the last time around, the English team played all over the Indians and managed to pull off a whitewash, a result that the Indian team suffered in 2 successive oversea’s series. It is pretty evident that things have changed considerably in the past three years, and the Indian team that is touring the British Isles this time around seems to be a lot more comfortable against pace, bounce and swing than the team that toured the last time around.

      * India 53/1 after 15 overs, Murali Vijay 30* Cheteshwar Pujara 10*

      After the fall of Dhawan’s wicket, Cheteshwar Pujara joined hands with Vijay at the crease and made sure that there is no further loss for the Indians within the first hour of play. The Scoring rate has been respectably good and both the batsmen are looking assured so far on the crease.

      * India 77/1 after 21 overs, Murali Vijay 42* Cheteshwar Pujara 22*

      The two Indian batsmen continued their good work as both of them kept on waiting for the bad ball to score the boundaries and put more emphasis on taking the singles and rotating the strike. Pujara looks set for a big one here because if you go by past experiences, whenever he starts off an innings slow he ends up getting a big hundred.

      Murli Vijay on the other hand has not been troubled at all by the English Attack so far. the bowlers have struggled to extract a mistake from the batsmen and have looked clueless on a wicket that doesn’t seem familiar to what had been promised by any means

      * India 107/1 after 30 overs, Murali Vijay 55* Cheteshwar Pujara 38*

      The two batsmen have yet not been troubled in the innings so far and the English captain has tried all his front line bowlers but to no avail. Mean while Murali Vijay completed his half century with a sweet cover drive in the 24th over off the bowling of Ben Stokes. Cheteshwar Pujara, as said before has started showing signs of scoring a big one after a slow start as India managed to get more than hundred runs on the board before Lunch on the first itself.

      * India 107/3 after 30 overs, Murali Vijay 55* Ajinkya Rahane 4*

      Just when everything looked right for the Indians at the time of lunch, the English bowlers helped an absolute beauty of a catch from Ian Bell at silly mid onn broke the backbone of the Indian Batting line up picking up the wickets of Pujara and Virat Kohli in successive overs. The Indian batting looks to be in a bit of trouble, considering the fact that they have only included 6 specialist batsmen in this match. India managed to score only 1 run in 4 overs and lost 2 wickets in the post lunch session. The onus now lies on Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane to lead the way for the Indian batting line up.

      * India 120/3 after 43 overs, Murali Vijay 55* Ajinkya Rahane 4*

      The struggle has been on between the Indian batsmen and the English bowlers with the Indian batsmen batting with patience waiting for the spirits of the bowlers to die down. the scoring has been slow in this session with the team scoring only 14 runs in 15 overs.

      * India 138/3 after 50 overs, Murali Vijay 72* Ajinkya Rahane 14*

      Things seem to have settled down once again for the Indian team with Murali Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane dropping the anchor at the crease and looking to play the long innings. After the fall of the wicket in the first hour after lunch, the proceedings have been rather slow, but this could well prove to be the deciding point of the test match. English bowler have been on the attack throughout this period but Vijay and Rahane have managed to keep them at bay. Vijay is slowly and steadily moving towards his hundred.

      * India 177/3 after 59 overs, Murali Vijay 92* and Ajinkya Rahane 32*

      Murali Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane put up a good fight against the English bowling attack. Anderson and Stuart Broad have been getting a lot of reverse swing that is troubling the batsmen and which is how they dismissed Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Johli. Murali Vijay andnAjinkya Rahane seem to be putting up a good fight and Murali Vijay is on the verge of getting a ton. The match has stopped for tea now. Stay tuned for more updates on the 1st Match between India and England after the tea break.

      * India 217/4 after 75 overs, Murali Vijay 102*MS Dhoni 29*

      England once again struck early after the break after dismissing Ajinkya Rahane, but Murali Vijay has continued the good work for India and he has been joined in by the able hands of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Liam Plunkett picked up the important wicket for the English but since then the partnership has been building up again and to be fair, this might just prove dangerous as the final 2 days of the test will prove to be a disaster for the batsmen.

      * India 259/4 after 90 overs, Murali Vijay 122*MS Dhoni 50*

      India finished the first day at 259/4, a score that they will be happy with considering the fact that they were in a spot of bother after the first 4 overs during the post Lunch session. Captain MS Dhoni and Murali Vijay look well settled at the crease and nothing has seemed to disrupt their concentration. While Vijay has gone on to get his 4th Test match century, Dhoni has also completed his 50 with style.

      On the other hand, except on a handful of occasions it has been hard work throughout for the English bowler on a dead pitch. It cannot be said how this pitch would behave in the next 4 days, but as of now, the signs don’t look good for the English team

      Vijay ton takes India past setbacks



      M Vijay's fourth Test century, his first away from home, held India's innings together on a first day full of momentum shifts on an atypically slow and lifeless Trent Bridge pitch. India suffered jolts at a number of critical junctures, of which the double-loss of Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli immediately after lunch could have proved particularly debilitating. But Vijay batted calmly through the day to go to stumps on an unbeaten 122, as India shaded an absorbing first day.

      The rest of the match could hinge on two selection calls, one by each team. India handed Stuart Binny a debut, giving themselves an extra seam option at the expense of a specialist batsman in Rohit Sharma. England brought in Ben Stokes for Chris Jordan in a straight swap. Stokes, who had made a Test hundred in Perth batting at No. 6, was now penciled in at No. 8.

      When MS Dhoni - none of whose six Test centuries have come outside the subcontinent - walked in at 178 for 4, after Liam Plunkett's around-the-wicket ribcage attack had prised out Ajinkya Rahane in the first over after tea, it could have gone either way. But Dhoni was hardly troubled, on a pitch with little of the extra bounce that often exposes his lack of footwork when the ball moves outside off stump, and moved to 50 by stumps, having scored at a strike rate of nearly 80 without particularly going after the bowling, and having seen off nine overs of the second new ball.

      Of the 120 balls Plunkett delivered on Wednesday, 70 were aimed at India's right-handed batsmen from around the wicket, a majority of them banged in short. The line of attack dismissed Rahane, who toe-ended an attempted pull to silly point, and kept India's scoring rate down - Plunkett conceded 1.37 runs an over from around the wicket as opposed to 4.80 from over the wicket - but it was a largely attritional ploy. Most of the time, India's batsmen swayed away from Plunkett's short balls, and they often bounced a second time on their way to Matt Prior behind the stumps.

      On a pitch that nullified their quickest bowler, England still managed to produce a few wicket-taking deliveries. Two of these came from James Anderson. In the seventh over of the morning, he produced one that straightened from around the wicket to find Shikhar Dhawan's outside edge. Then, in the second over of the post-lunch session, he took some pace off a full, reverse-swinging ball that Pujara popped into the right hand of a diving Ian Bell.

      That Bell was stationed at short mid-on, at handshaking distance from the non-striker, spoke of an under-fire captain trying to show he could think out of the box. Alastair Cook's tactics had some role to play in Rahane's dismissal as well, although it could be said he persisted too long with Plunkett's around-the-wicket line, particularly early in Dhoni's innings, when he is often uncomfortable outside his off stump.

      In between all the wickets, it was Vijay's day. He began with three fours in the first over of the morning, two edged to third man and one clipped off his pads. Four of his first five boundaries, in fact came off his outside edge. Generally, the edges came from an uncertain front-foot stride, but he wasn't doing too much wrong besides that. He was playing close to his body, with soft hands, and leaving a large percentage of the balls he faced. As the morning session wore on, particularly after Anderson and Stuart Broad went out of the attack, his front-foot stride grew increasingly assured, and he was soon playing the effortless drives he is known for, through cover and mid-on.

      Vijay took India to 106 for 1 at lunch, in the company of a fluent-looking Pujara, and England were looking increasingly bereft of ideas or even bowling options. They lacked a genuine spinner and Stokes was their fourth rather than fifth bowler. It looked at that point as if Anderson and Broad were in for an exhausting first Test, never a good idea in a five-Test series.

      But Anderson dismissed Pujara right after lunch, and Broad produced a nasty delivery that straightened and bounced out of nowhere to dismiss Virat Kohli in the very next over. India had lost their two best batsmen in the space of ten balls. But Vijay and Rahane remained unruffled through a difficult period, against Anderson's reverse swing and Stokes' tight line just outside off, scoring only 13 in a 10-over period but knowing that release would come soon. It did.

      Vijay moved into the 80s with two fours in the 51st over of the innings, driving Plunkett through cover and then steering him behind point. Alastair Cook then brought on his only spinner, the allrounder Moeen Ali, and Vijay and Rahane milked the offspinner for 21 runs in five overs. India finished the session in a secure position, even if they had lost some of the initiative they had possessed at lunch, and would build on that in a final session that brought them 82 runs for the loss of one wicket. India aren't in a dominant position by any means, but they will take 259 for 4 on the first day of the series, particularly considering how the first day of their previous series in England went.
