ICC ODI Rankings: Virat Kohli retains top spot, 5-0 win over West Indies to give India 2nd spot 23.6.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Virat Kohli retained the top spot among batsmen while India were placed third among ODI teams in the latest ICC Rankings issued on Thursday. Kohli leads South Africa's AB de Villiers by four points and he will aim to consolidate his number-one batting position and also help India reclaim the number-two ranking when he captains his side in the five-ODI series against the West Indies, starting on Friday. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan were at joint 10th in the list of batsmen while there were no Indians among top-10 bowlers and top-5 all-rounders. India (116 points) can leapfrog second-placed Australia (117 points) by a fraction of a point if the Kohli-led side win all the five matches of the ODI series against the West Indies. In contrast, if the West Indies win two matches in the series, then India will drop behind England in fourth place on 112 points. Victories in two matches will also lift the West Indies from 77 points to 81 points, thus, narrowing the gap with eighth-ranked Sri Lanka to 12 ...

India will seek to put cricket in the forefront 22.6.2017 deccanherald.com
Captain Virat Kohli will look to put to rest, all the off-field controversies regarding Anil Kumble's controversial exit, as India gear up for the first ODI against a second string West Indies, here on Friday. Ironically, it was the Caribbean Islands, where Anil Kumble's journey as the chief national coach started but within a year, the team is back without its coach. Skipper Kohli, whose much publicised differences of opinion with coach Kumble, have grabbed the headlines more than team's performance in the Champions Trophy, couldn't have asked for a more convenient opposition than the West Indies, which even struggled against minnows Afghanistan. A cluster of big wins in the five-match ODI series and a single T20 will help Kohli divert the unnecessary attention pinned on him with him emerging as the 'fall guy' in the entire coach-captain episode. This will also be an occasion when Kohli will have complete freedom in team selection as batting coach Sanjay Bangar is not known for giving any tangible ...
ICC's decision gives India advantage 22.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The ICC has decided not to interfere in modalities related to bilateral agreement involving two nations, a move that could prove to be handy for the BCCI, which has constantly been harangued by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for "not honouring" a MoU signed in 2014. The Indian Cricket Board will now also be a part of the governance group, and more importantly, the ICC's Strategic Working group, which takes decisions on a lot of important commerce and finance related issues. These were agreed upon in the International Cricket Council's Annual Conference in London. The most important development was the ICC's non-interference in modalities related to bilateral series. This is being perceived as a move that will help them deal with the PCB "more firmly" on series related issues. According to ICC's amended constitution, the member nations will have full right to decide on bilateral series, itinerary and every other subsidiary details. Mini victory Related to this issue, the BCCI has also earned another ...

Home is where the heart is 22.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Friday
Weekends are when I get to chill out and gather myself up before starting a busy week. Since I keep working through the week, I tend to be out of the house most of the time. So during the weekends, I try to be with family. I also go meet my grandparents. Other than that, I like to go with my brother and friends for long drives. Sometimes we just drive down to Lonavala, Khandala or Pune, which are just a two-hour drive from Mumbai. I love travelling a lot and I also use the opportunity to try out adventure activities. That makes me happy too. I am a big foodie. Though my favourite cuisines are Italian and Mexican, I love trying out new restaurants and cuisines. 'Indigo Cafe' is one of the eateries I like going back to. And the fact that it is near to my house makes it even more comfortable. When it comes to my cooking skills, I don't let anyone touch my breakfast. I like to make the first meal of the day myself. Since I am a foodie, I also like to keep myself fit, which is why I hit the gym regularly. I ...

Kohli-Kumble rift: 'Aware of all details, but can't reveal anything,' says Sourav Ganguly 22.6.2017 DNA: Opinion
Former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Friday said it was Anil Kumble's personal decision to step down as head coach but refused to comment on the speculated rift with Virat Kohli. "He has resigned at the last minute, it's his personal decision. I don't want to talk on this matter," Ganguly, a member of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) formed to recommend the coach, said at CAB on Friday. "I'm aware of everything that's happening at the moment, I've even spoken with both Kohli and Kumble, but I believe things like these are confidential and shouldn't be discussed in public."

The BCCI has decided to invite more applications for the post of Indian team's coach to give the CAC a wide range of options for picking the suitable candidate who will be appointed before the tour of Sri Lanka next ...
