The Oval, currently referred to for sponsorship purposes as the Kia Oval,it is an international cricket ground in Kennington, in the London Borough of Lambeth, in south London.It was the first ground in England to host international Test cricket in September 1880.The Oval is built on part of the former Kennington Common. Cricket matches were played on the common throughout the early 18th century. The earliest recorded first-class match was the London v Dartford match on 18 June 1724.However, as the common was also used regularly for public executions of those convicted at the Surrey Assizes (it was the south London equivalent of Tyburn), cricket matches had moved away to the Artillery Ground by the 1740s. Kennington Common was eventually enclosed in the mid 19th century under a scheme sponsored by the Royal Family.In September 2015, the Peter May and Tony Lock stands were demolished, to be replaced by a single new and much larger stand named after Peter May. May led Surrey to their sixth and seventh consecutive County Championships in 1957 and 1958 and also captained England from 1955 to 1961, winning the Ashes in 1956. Construction of the new stand, which cost around £10m, began in September 2015. It officially opened on 15 May 2016, increasing the capacity of the ground by 1,300 seats to 25,300.
Hey all, Welcome to Cricwild world. The Indian team has landed in London, England to participate in the ICC World Cup 2019 which begins from May 30 and will see 10 of the top ODI teams taking on each other in a round robin format in order to reach the semi-finals and then crown the World Champions. The Indian team has started practicing as well and hit the nets a day after landing.Currently they are at no.2 ranked ODI team in ICC rankings, India is widely considered to be favorites to win the tournament and become champions for the third time, along with hosts England and defending champions Australia.As per the ICC’s World Cup schedule, the teams have home and away matches. The Men in Blue will not actually be completely Blue when they play those away games. The Indian team will play with a new and differently coloured clothing for all the away matches in the tournament. Their first match is against South Africa on June 5 at the Rose Bowl in Southampton.The Indian team has a mix of experience in Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, and Mohammad Shami.With youth in likes of Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya amongst others. Apart from the originally announced 15-man squad, the Indian team has also employed the services of four young Indian fast bowlers to bowl in the nets throughout the tournament.
Probable XI :
Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Vijay Shankar, Dinesh Karthik (wk), KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja
New Zealand :
New Zealand reached the semifinals six times but the trophy has eluded it.The Kiwis have been consistent performers at the World Cup, but a trophy has proved elusive. New Zealand has reached the semifinals on six occasions, and in the last edition, made a terrific run to the final.Kane Williamson, who showed tactical acumen to lead Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) to the Eliminator round in the recent Indian Premier League, is an able captain. Williamson is also a key part of the batting line-up, alongside Martin Guptill and Ross Taylor.The experienced Taylor, the nation’s highest run-getter at the World Cup, is in tremendous form as well. In his last match, he scored a double hundred in a Test innings victory over Bangladesh.Trent Boult, the joint-highest wicket-taker at the 2015 World Cup (alongside Mitchell Starc), leads the attack.His partners Tim Southee and Matt Henry have not been as menacing, but given the right conditions, they could prove to be a handful. Southpaw Mitchell Santner is the first-choice spinner, while leggie Ish Sodhi could be called to action if the pitch assists the spinners.
Probable XI :
Kane Williamson (c), Tom Blundell (wk), Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham (wk), Colin Munro, Jimmy Neesham, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee (vc), Ross Taylor.
