Lionheart Shami Ahmed rises to the challenge

In five Ranji games, Shami took 28 wickets at a stunning average of 21.35. He'd probably have scalped a few more had it not been for the small matter of a call-up to the Indian One-Day International squad to face Pakistan.

Tribute to Tony Greig: Packed Eden Gardens for Indo-Pak ODI

Tony Greig had called Eden Gardens as one of his favourite grounds up until the India-West Indies Test match which saw vacant seats.

Putting mind over matter, the Dhoni way

It's unlikely that his wonderful century on Sunday (December 30) in the first One-Day International against Pakistan in Chennai will go any distance in redressing the balance, but Dhoni showed during the course of his eighth ODI hundred that when it comes to the crunch, he can still put mind over matter.

Why India has no substitute for Dhoni in ODIs

India might have a better wicketkeeper than him or a better batsman than him or for that matter a better captain than him, but they are yet to find a player who can serve as all three with aplomb. So for now, there is no one who can replace Dhoni in ODIs.

Indian cricket in 2012: The year in retrospect

Yuvraj Singh and Motera Stadium share fond memories

Yuvraj blasted his way to an explosive 72 off 36 balls to lead India to a challenging total of 192 runs after being asked to bat. Yuvraj dealt in boundaries as much as he favoured taking the aerial route. His innings had four fours and seven sixes in all. Helped by skipper MS Dhoni at the other end, he pelted both the spinners as well as the pacers to put his team in control.

Who is Yuvraj Singh?

Yuvraj brought back the memories of 2007 T20 World Cup where he punished Stuart Broad with six sixes in an over. Though, he didn't repeat the feat, the impact was no lesser. Despite being hit on the toe in the beginning of his innings, Yuvraj hit seven humongous sixes and four boundaries to leave Pakistani bowlers gasping.
