Shane Watson facing drop down from Squad due to bad Form

Shane Watson is not too far away from being dropped out of the playing XI of the Australian Cricket team.

The pressure is starting to mount on the Queenslander now with all the players in the squad almost getting fit.

There are three pace bowling all rounders in the Australian squad for the World Cup i.e. Watson, Mitchell Marsh and James Faulkner.

If all three of them are available for selection, it’s very much possible that Marsh and Faulkner get the nod ahead of Watson because of their current form.

Currently, Faulkner is injured and thus, Watson might get to play another game this Saturday versus the Bangladeshi team. But, he will have to get some runs to his name there. (more…)

Adam Gilchrist feels AB De Villiers is best Cricketer

Adam Gilchrist reckons there is no Cricket player going around at the moment who brings more value to his team than AB De Villiers brings to South Africa.

He can be an elegant player and he can, all of a sudden, become the brutal basher as well and it’s not only his abilities with the bat which makes him a superstar, the contribution that he makes in the field or even behind the stumps when he keeps, it’s fantastic.

Gilchrist is also the fan of De Villiers’ captaincy. He likes the way the 31-year old sets example for the other guys. (more…)
