PRLog - Jul. 26, 2014 - OKHLA, India -- MS Dhoni had stated long before that he won't play Test cricket beyond 2015 and now he has once again talked about his intention after leading India to a memorable win at Lord's. According to him, it was a "memorable" one for him because he does not foresee himself to play a five-day game again at the 'Home of Cricket'.MS Dhoni had stated long before that he won't play Test cricket beyond 2015 and now he has once again talked about his intention after leading India to a memorable win at Lord's. According to him, it was a "memorable" one for him because he does not foresee himself to play a five-day game again at the 'Home of Cricket'. India registered their first Test win at Lord's in 28 years -– only second win in 17 Tests here -– after 'Kapil Dev's team achieved the feat back in June 1986 winning by five wickets. "It is a special win here yes, but every Test win is special in its own way. I remember the 2007 series when the match ended in a draw because of bad light and S Sreesanth and I were batting at that time. We saved the Test and were victorious in that series. Every Test is special and it is great to win outside India. It will be my last Test at Lord's because I don't see myself coming back here in a few years. So yes, it is a very memorable victory," Mahendra Singh Dhoni said at the post-match press conference.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni is a street smart skipper

Steve Waugh has labeled Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni as "street smart" who knows his limitations as a leader. In Mumbai for a charity event, the former Aussie Test captain praised India for their 95-run victory against England at Lord's. "He's a street smart guy," said Waugh.


Williamson suspended over illegal action
New Zealand all-rounder Kane Williamson has been banned from bowling because of an illegal action. Williamson, who bowls occasional off spin while predominantly playing as a top order batsman, was reported by umpires during the second test between New Zealand and the West Indies at Port of Spain, Trinidad on July 6. New Zealand Cricket said independent analysis of his action, conducted this month at Cardiff Metropolitan University, concluded his elbow extension exceeds the 15 degrees of tolerance permitted under ICC regulations. Williamson has been suspended from bowling until he has "submitted to fresh independent analysis and satisfied assessors of the legality of his action," NZC said. The 23-year-old, currently with Yorkshire, has 24 test wickets at an average of 40.

Amla backs Imran Tahir

Imran Tahir was selected in the Test team in order to dismantle Sri Lankan batting lineup on the spin friendly wickets of the rainbow nation but he struggled a lot, picking up just one wicket in the first five day game against the home team. However, his captain Hashim Amla has backed him. Imran is a quality performer. I am not concerned about him at all. He has been exceptional in the shorter format of the game," said Amla. He has only taken 37 wickets in 14 Tests at an average of 45.67. "Test cricket is a challenging place. He will come good, it will take a few good performances to get his confidence back. He is a wonderful bowler. I'd say he is one the most highly skilled leg-spinners in the world," he added.
