    "I would like to score a 150-run win over India on Tuesday."
    Geoff Lawson, the Pakistan coach

    Almost there. Missed by just 10 runs (albeit the other way) - would be nice to know what he would like to score in the next game.. How about a 10-wkt win?

    A small fabric bracelet is England cricketers’ latest secret weapon that has boosted their performance levels.

    The Trion-Z ‘magic’ bands are being tried by the team after cricketers James Anderson and Stuart Broad said they were huge fans of the bracelet.

    Using incredibly high-powered magnets, the bracelets are medically proven to increase blood flow around the body, improving concentration levels and rates of cell-regeneration.

    Stuart Broad and James Anderson registered their career best test scores with the bat. Anderson followed it up with a career-best bowling performance. Guess, it is time Bracewell bought a few bracelets for his wards.

    Australian spin legend Shane Warne will oversee the selection trials of the third season of a nationwide talent hunt, the winner of which would get a contract with the Rajasthan Royals team in the 2010 Indian Premier League.

    'Cricket Star Twenty20' was launched by Royals team owners Emerging Media on Thursday.

    Warne, who is the captain-cum-coach of Rajasthan Royals, and Emerging Media Chairman Manoj Badale unveiled the Cricket Star Twenty20 Season 3 trophy.

    The boys chosen through the hunt will be a part of the Cricket Star Academy and will also have the chance to interact, train and play with the Rajasthan Royals team.

    If you haven't played first class cricket and if you haven't represented India at the under-19 level and if you aren't Lalu and Rabri's son and if you really want to get an IPL contract as a player, this is what you need to be participating in.

    A book on Indian pace bowler Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, titled Keralathinte Sreesanth written by Malayalam daily Mathrubhumi's Sports Magazine editor K Viswanath, was released in Kochi.

    Do you think Harbhajan Singh was approached to write the "ForeWord" for this book? Would be nice if it has (dont think it is there though) a chapter on the impact of the "slap" and how it transformed Sree from a clown to a serious ambassador of his state.
