India and West Indies will aim to come out with the final punch and outclass each other when they battle it out in the series decider at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday.With the series closed in 1-1, the Indian hosts will face the West Indies two-times World Champion in the virtual final match at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Hosts will search for eight wins in a row over the West Indies in all their forms after the second T20I loss.The West Indies recovered to put the series on par with a comfortable victory over India in the second T20I in Thiruvananthapuram after Virat Kohli helped the hosts dominate the opening of the series in Hyderabad. Visitors did well to keep the hosts to a manageable total of 170 after winning the toss and decided to bowl first. Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis achieved a healthy opening of 73 runs before both Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran led the West Indies to a convincing victory in the end.The Indian fielding was well below average at the first T20I. Dropping catches and many misfields led to say that if performance doesn't improve, the result won't be enough. The hosts are also good chasers, but they have to learn to defend goals.The vice-captain of India, Rohit Sharma, said the hosts did not trust the "very unpredictable" side of the West Indies which was well led by his fellow Indian team mate from Mumbai Indians, Kieron Pollard."They are unpredictable as a team. You never know what can happen on a particular day. Even in the first game, they played very well. It was Virat's brilliance that led us to the goal. With the West Indies, this always expected, said Rohit SharmaOn the other hand, the West Indies will imagine their chances of closing the series after their amazing return. For visitors, Wankhede brings good memories of the ICC 2016 World Cup semi-finals when Windies beat India and won the title.West Indies coach Phil Simmons said the team would rely heavily on Captain Kieron Pollard at the third T20 International Championship to decide the series against India, because his understanding of the field due to IPL exposure would be "invaluable" for bowlers."Kieron Pollard has played a lot at this place, while others haven't played much," Simmons said. "I think the experience they got from here is invaluable especially to Captain (Pollard), because he's been here for 10 years" at pre-match press conference.Here are the squads of both the teams:India: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Chahar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Sanju Samson.West Indies: Kieron Pollard (captain), Fabian Allen, Brandon King, Denesh Ramdin, Sheldon Cottrell, Evin Lewis, Sherfane Rutherford, Shimron Hetmyer, Khary Pierre, Lendl Simmons, Jason Holder, Hayden Walsh Jr, Keemo Paul, Kesrick Williams.HIGHLIGHTSWith the series locked at 1-1, hosts India take on two-time world champions West Indies in the virtual finalWest Indies bounced back to bring the series to parity with a comfortable victory over India in the second T20IIndia will be eyeing eight successive series win over West Indies across formatsRead More: India's squad for West Indies series: Rohit Sharma's workload, out-of-form Shikhar Dhawan in focus

HAMILTON: India is expected to achieve its first victory in the T20 International Series in New Zealand, and only a special return for hosts with difficulties in the third match here on Wednesday will delay what appears to be inevitable.India won the T20 Internationals in Auckland by six and seven texts margins, to beat 2-0.The third successive win in Seddon Park would give them their first victory of the T20I series on New Zealand soil, an achievement they had not achieved twice before. India lost 0-2 under Mahendra Singh Dhoni in 2008-09, and last year, India lost 1-2.Overall, this Indian team has seen an increase in luck and has not been defeated in the five T20 series since the ODI 2019 World Cup, including the current team against Black Caps. The only competition they didn't win was against South Africa when the three-game series ended in a 1-1 draw after a match was canceled.However, their current win from T20I will not make any major change to the ICC ranking. Currently, India is ranked fifth in the T20I ranking and needs to win the remaining three games, this series 5-0, to advance to fourth from the current fifth.New Zealand is currently in sixth place. Pakistan, Australia, England and South Africa are ranked high on the leaderboard.The biggest concern at the moment is the progress towards the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia later this year. However, in this context, the team's management is sure of the calm that several parts of the puzzle are starting to fit in, at the right time.This is mainly due to the performance of KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer in recent months, especially on the tour so far.As such, no changes are expected in the Indian T20 team. On Tuesday, there was an optional training session with Captain Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah, who were missing the action in the past games.The support team worked closely with these players who have not yet had a chance to play in the series. Ravi Shastri pays much attention to the Washington Sunder, while batting trainer Vikram Rathour was extremely busy with Rishabh Pant. Both are expected to rest again on Wednesday.There is a possibility of a change in the Indian composition. Kuldeep Yadav was out of the first two games in Auckland.Chahal provides more control and moves his spin away from most of the right-handed batsmen in the black caps team and, therefore, against the swing arch.Yadav is more adventurous on his journey, and the angle of his spin could have been easy fodder within the short borders of Eden Park.It remains to be seen if Kuldeep Yadav returns to competition in Seddon Park. In addition, there is little chance that Chahal, Yadav will play together, a move that India has avoided since the ODI World Cup.From New Zealand's point of view, this is the last chance for Colin de Grandhomme to make a good impression. The all-rounder on the team will be replaced in the last T20I by Tom Bruce.Grandhomme has played as a striker so far in the series, and he has 0 and 3 scores in the first two games.New Zealand is not very concerned about its bowling performance in this series, despite India's relative ease of chasing totals in the first two games. Its main concern is the rivalry with Indian bowling, especially Jasprit Bumrah, who has regained much of his pace.In both games, they could not take him, either at the beginning or during the death overs. For its part, India mixed well with things in the second T20, keeping Jasprit Bumrah until later in the power play.New Zealand performed poorly in Eden Park late, but it's record in Seddon Park is steady. They have won seven of the nine T20I games that they played here, and hope to prevent India from taking advantage of this game indisputably.Teams IND VS NZIndia: Virat Kohli (Capt.), Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul (wk), Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, Shreyas Iyer, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Shardul Thakur, Navdeep Saini, Washington Sundar.New Zealand: Kane Williamson (Capt.), Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor, Scott Kuggeleijn, Colin Munro, Colin de Grandhomme, Tom Bruce, Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner, Tim Seifert (wk), Hamish Bennett, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Blair Tickner.

MUMBAI: Unprecedented in our lifetime, the havoc caused by the Covid-19, brought about has left, the sports industry in absolute disarray.Given that India and cricket, from India's perspective, seem to be back to normal in the coming months, there is much to worry about as the gaming economy lies in a shamble. Few understand the global and local economy of sport from a bird's perspective such as Sundar Raman.The former chief executive officer of the Indian Premier League (IPL), who has worked on T20 ownership from the start and was one of the main practical work on the International Cricket Council (ICC), is closely monitoring how things have gone spiraling out. Raman is working on a white paper that analyzes the current cricket crisis, the stress of the coming months, and the potential treatments the industry can consider in the short and long term. Exclusively share these reviews with TOI.If there is a controversy between the World Cup T20 or IPL, it explains why the IPL should be where no sport can withstand the financial crisis today. From Raman's point of view, this is an annual property that generates about 40% of global cricket revenue versus a global property that has the ease of reprogramming for a later stage.He says that IPL alone guarantees US$100m in players' salaries annually (Rs 85 cr per franchise multiplied by 8). This accounts for broadcast revenue for at least three to four ICC membership councils together, confirming what is at stake for players financially on a global scale when it comes to the T20 in India.Raman has worked on two possible scenarios that may unfold in the coming months: Scenario 1: Sport returns to TV / digital platforms in July 2020 and fans stadiums in January 2021 Scenario 2: Sport returns to TV / digital platforms by December 2020 and fans stadiums by April 2021Raman says the focus of this document is to shine a light on the micro-economy of sport with a focus on the global cricket scene in the top three incomes of the sports economy, which are media/broadcast revenue, sponsorship revenue and Game Day (ticketing) revenue and the impact of COVID on the overall ecosystem.With a global cricket economy estimated US$1.9b and a heavy dependence on India (nearly two-thirds of revenue is generated by playing in India or with the participation of India), India realizes only 45% of its full potential, thus allowing other countries to cash.“This potential opportunity for India’s contribution to revenue (which India has not provided) is only $ US$ 1.2b over a 4-year cycle (2019-2022)," he says.A third of cricket revenue in 2019 came from IPL. With a fair market price structure, nearly 24% ($ 100 million) of transmission rights fees earned by IPL are spent as player salaries every year. In 2019, despite being a year in the Cricket World Cup, IPL revenue was estimated to be 30% higher than that of the World Cup (not including CWC ticket issuance revenue, such as the host retains). IPL 2020 revenue was expected to increase by 70% compared to ICC WT20 revenue in 2020. With the current uncertainty surrounding these two events, this remains a hypothetical scenario. Raman says, "Canceling these two events will have a serious impact on the cricket economy for this year."However, in the event of an ICC event, where contracts will last until 2023, postponement until 2022 may be possible without losing income. Not hosting an IPL or binary season for any country will result in an income loss, which is undesirable. In an ideal world, the ICC event to be held in 2021 in India can move to Australia as it is in the same October window, and India can host the event in 2022 by creating a suitable window. This will allow time for economic recovery and will not confuse the calendar. "Also, if the WT20 is made behind closed doors, the front door revenue for Australia will be zero. For IPL, even if conducted behind closed doors, the impact is less as it is extinguished by more than 8 stakeholder teams and the IPL economy still supports one season behind closed doors.“IPL remains the most important event for the global cricket economy. With a contribution of about a third of global cricket revenue annually, the importance of the global cricket economy IPL cannot be overstated. If IPL is considered the separate cricket agency and IPL revenue will be removed from Indian cricket board revenue, and IPL will appear as the largest Generator of global cricket revenue, which is even higher than the ICC and ACC revenue.Read More: Stadiums, sports complexes allowed to open, spectators barredTherefore, given the significant contribution and annual nature of IPL, event cancellation would be a severe revenue loss for the cricket economy, something that no sport can afford in the current economic environment. While the jury has not yet decided on the International Criminal Court WT20 this year, the postponement of (T20 Global) deserves serious consideration.The document also states: While India earns US$ 863m, the value attributable to revenue from the Indian share is estimated at US$ 1.2b. This delta in excess of US$ 300m+ annually can be seen as lost opportunities for India or in a more positive perspective as India's contribution to cricket outside India. For 4 years, this value was astonishing at US$ 1.2b. Broadcast and sponsorship deals for the ICC and ACC events are mainly driven by the large fan base in India and the large audience in India. Media reports put TV audiences into the 2019 ICC CWC Final between England and New Zealand in England with 15.4 million in Sky in England and 183 million in India.Additionally, out of a total of 706 million one-time broadcasts of the 2019 ICC ODI World Cup, 509 million were from India. This reliance on India is also evident from the relatively low value that global broadcasters obtain through licensing from all other markets despite organized events in some of those markets.“India’s importance to the global cricket economy cannot be overstated. Outside Australia and England, which have been doing big business in the domestic market, worth US$ 1b over 4 years, other cricket paintings and Raman say they depend on Indian tours as part of bilateral props to attract broadcasters’ attention Indians.For countries where transactions in the domestic market are not large, flights from countries like India, England, or Pakistan become important, because they open up large transportation rights abroad, and are much greater than national rights.Many cricket boards have provisions in their broadcast agreements for how many games to play against India during the agreement period. Failure to comply with this may adversely affect the realization of the value of transmission rights. Given that the majority of these boards without broadcasting and playing rights within an income range of US$ 35 to US$ 45m, were not taken into account in the document analyzing a global crisis, and therefore, the main players.Image Source- Times of IndiaRead More: IPL not happening anytime soon: BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal
The BCCI accepts the bilateral series in South Africa will also mean that it will have CSA's support if they want to regulate the IPL in the October-November window.India and South Africa may play three T20 Internationals at the end of August, provided the situation arising out of the coronavirus pandemic improves substantially. Jacques Faul, Acting CEO of the CSA’s, said the accessories were currently scheduled for late August. Faul also spoke positively about the discussions that took place to play against India, but he added that much of this planning revolves around the closure and what the South African government will allow and what it does not allow."We had a good discussion with them (BCCI)," added the CSA executive director.“We are engaging via SASCOC with the Minister (Sports, Arts and Culture, Nathi Mthethwa). We are looking for a meeting with the Minister to obtain permission if necessary to play behind closed doors, and this relates to the possibility of touring India and other incoming tours."We are trying to be creative because it is an important tour to us."" Leading to that, Dr. Manjra, who heads the COVID-19 Steering Committee, is doing a great job. We are still guiding ourselves. A lot is being done regarding scenario planning."The fact that BCCI accepts this binary series will also mean that they will get CSA support if they want to organize IPL in the October-November window instead of the T20 World Cup.Given the rapid development of the situation, the CSA confirmed that the chain will be subject to mandates from the highest authorities in India and South Africa.Fall said they have already started the process of applying for permission from the South African government. "We are seeking, through Sascoc, to meet with the Minister of Sports to obtain approval, if necessary, to play behind closed doors."This will specifically relate to the possibility of an upcoming Indian tour. "The CSA also confirmed that the India tour was not the only one they were working on. "We are dealing with the West Indies Cricket Council regarding the postponed tours and the FTP," he said."We are trying to find opportunities after his (West Indies) tour to England to see how we can fit this chain, whether on neutral ground or wherever we are allowed to play. We have to see where we sit. By August and what are the restrictions on cricket International. "Read More: How Indias fantasy sporting leagues grew during lockdown despite live sports going offline
MUMBAI: Now that the ICC T20 World Cup scheduled in Australia this year between October and November, the question to be asked in the rounds is how and where this edition is modified between 2021 and 2023.A day after TOI reported that the postponement of the 2020 edition is a certainty, and an official announcement on the doorstep, the International Criminal Court's Financial and Trade Affairs Committee (FMCA) met in a teleconference with ICC CEO Manu Sawhney presiding over it.Among other things on the agenda, the main debate has revolved around how and where this year's T20 World Cup is being modified, one that will be lost in the epidemic that has caused global cricket, like any other sport around the world. . .“It was proposed for the first time to postpone this year’s edition (World Cup T20) to February and March of next year. This is no longer possible. Then it was suggested the other day to allow Australia to host the 2021 version and informed sources of events told TOI that India should do so in February and March 2022.However, it is understood that certain members of the FMCA, a committee chaired by the President of the Pakistan Cricket Council, Ehsan Mani, opposed the proposal.The logic behind the objection?If the T20 World Cup is organized in October / November next year, how can the T20 World Cup be organized in February / March? "Do we say that the team that wins the 2021 tournament will remain a champion for only five or six months? What's the point of that?" sources added.First, the British Chamber of Commerce and Industry did not exchange its views on the matter. Second, given BCCI revenue at stake, as they host the 2021 version, their views on this issue have not been researched yet. "If all countries are concerned about the epidemic affecting income cycles, then it is so for India. The other side is that India is being hit, which means everyone will be affected by it. The views of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry are very necessary," industry officials say.The FMCA, led by Mani, as its independent director ICC Independent Director Indra Nooyi,President of Cricket South Africa (CSA) Chris Nenzani, President of the European Central Bank Colin Graves, President of Cricket Australia Earl Eddings, and Vice President of the International Criminal Court Imran Khawaja. The ICC President Shashank Manohar and CEO Sawhney are also on the commission by holding other important positions in the governing body."Two years ago it was adequately confirmed that India would not have a single representative on this committee. The Canadian Chamber of Commerce and Industry has raised this as a matter of principle in the past, but thanks to the administrative deadlock that leaked due to court issues, India has not been able to follow this vigorously, " add those in the know.Why should the Indian Cricket Council agree to host the tournament in 2022 in February-March and give up hosting rights in 2021?"To suit Cricket Australia?BCCI is already making sure Cricket Australia is not losing by making sure India makes tours there this year for the test series. If the International Criminal Court and Cricket Australia want India to compel it in 2021 by agreeing to host in 2022, the Chamber of Commerce will be fair in claiming sufficient reasons and seeking a fair share of the obligation in return, "says follow-up developments. Also, why would the station agree? Star India coincides with ICC news anchor, as well as the Indian Premier League (IPL), which takes place annually in April and May. "Why would they agree to accept successive T20 events? It is not recommended to play in a window from October to November because it does not clash with other features in the same format," the sources added.Read More: India May Tour South Africa In August For Three-Match T20I SeriesArticle Source : Times of India
MUMBAI: Cricket Australia (CA) chairman Earl Eddings wrote a letter to the International Cricket Council's Financial and Trade Affairs Committee (F&CA) requesting that Australia be allowed to host the 2021 World Cup T20, instead of 2020.By doing this, Eddings and CA have reiterated that they will not be in a position to organize the 2020 version of the tournament, scheduled for October 18 to November 15. Indeed, the Eddings letter specifically requests that Australia be allowed to host the 2021 version instead of 2022, given multiple commercials at stake.The email, which was sent by Eddings (TOI owns this message), was flagged only for members of the Financial & Commercial Affairs Commission (F&CA). The CA chair is also a member of the panel, while BCCI is not part of this committee. F&CA is chaired by the president of Pakistan Cricket Council, Ehsan Mani, who was promoted to the presidency after former BCCI president Shashank Manohar took over the board. TOI understands that CA sent this message more than a week ago.Boards say they are fascinated by the ICC statement given that the CA has made its position very clear: it does not expect the 2020 event to be organized.“Why does the ICC not acknowledge that they have a letter from the CA chief? These are things that give the administration a bad name. As they said (CPI),” the current president (Manohar) confirmed is not looking for an extension. About your state. "Is this the whole truth?" Say the sources that follow developments.Eddings' shared concern in the message is his stated view that "it would be harmful to cricket if the cancellation of the" Australian event "(this year's T20 World Cup) is replaced by the award of the T20 World Cup in October 2022".Eddings message says: “Fortunately, Australia has succeeded in“ Curve (Covid) ”, which means there is more certainty of being able to play in Australia in 2021 (which is essential to maintaining membership distribution). It will give India a year Another is to solve any of the issues related to Covid, "stressing that India should host the 2022 event.Cricket Australia says it has invested heavily in the last women's T20 to "make it a success" and has spent a lot of money marketing the event. Given the current financial burden, CA adds that there will be no guarantee for continued government support in 2022 that has agreed to pay $ 4.5 million to tourism partner rights.Will India agree to host the 2022 event?As long as BCCI hosts the IPL every year and its bilateral obligations are respected in the country, India will lose little. "The proceeds of the ICC event are not actually compared to the stakes that the T20 League Chamber of Commerce and all other international cockroaches have at home. So if India really wants to provide service to Australia, why not?" Say developments follow. Ultimately, it is bound to be a political rather than a commercial decision, given that financial stakeholders have little or no profit in the negotiations.What's in store on Thursday?With the ICC stressing that chairman Shashank Manohar will not seek to extend his term and documents drafted for nominations after understanding between members, the only other agenda item other than discussing the T20 World Cup is deciding the election date. Sources say, "Technically, the deadline for nominations will be about two weeks after ratification, which is Thursday. Therefore, elections can be held in late June or early July." From now until the next elections, he expected the T20 World Cup to continue and be a "political debate".Article Source: timesofindiaRead More: How to reschedule T20 World Cup?

IPL News: The bad fight between Gautam Gambir and Virat Kohli occupied more headlines than the winning punches in the match. Fans and critics still remember how the Delhi boys went into a verbal battle in 2013 during the IPL match when the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) hosted the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the M Chinnaswamy stadium.However, the cause of this battle is still unknown. Gambir and Kohli both played down the accident on many occasions, but the man who separated the duo from the confrontation recently spoke on the same thing.Rajat Bhatia, who tried to stop Gambir and Kohli, did his best to calm things down, recently spoke to the Asianet Newsable, and said that he was just very competitive players who act very strangely in the midst of this moment."This is something that happened when two aggressive leaders played, and always wanted to do their best and win their teams." "Even if they had some kind of collision in that match, that was just part of the game," said Bhatia, who was part of the KKR team in that match."Later on, I didn't see them fighting (Gambir and Kohli). In the midst of the moment, many things happen. But, it shouldn't happen for the worst. The 40-year-old added," It wasn't like that on that day. "In that match, RCB won that match with eight wickets over KKR. After chasing 155 to win, the hosts rode Chris Gayle's sparkling punch 85 strokes to hit the target with 15 balls to spare.Young Kohli scored 35 before being caught by Ewen Morgan outside Lakshmipathi Balaji in the tenth final. It was his class that led to an unpleasant conflict during the celebration of KKR.article source: crickettimesAlso Read: India May Tour South Africa In August For Three-Match T20I Series

RR vs SRH Dream11 IPL 2020 Prediction, Playing 11In another high-effort Indian Premier League match on Great Thursday, Rajasthan Royals Sunrisers Hyderabad will face Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Match No. 40. The royals led by Steve Smith are sixth in the standings with eight points and still have little chance to advance to the next round. On the other hand, SRH is one point six points below it and thus has four points to memorize. RR failed to shoot Chennai Super Kings (CSK). His tactic of demoting Jos Butler to fifth, however, managed to finish the match unbeaten at 70 and lead the team to victory. Ben Stokes, Sanjo Samson and Robin Uthapa should provide a good start, while the responsibility for turning them falls to Butler and Smith. Samson has been in decline since the first two games of the season and will be looking to improve his performance.RR captain Guofra Archer (39 wickets from 31 matches) will once again lead the reins and seek support from Stokes, who has yet to make a difference. The other players, Tiwatia, Shrias Gopal, Ankit Rajput and Kartik Tiyagi were too cheap for the ball against CSK. On the other hand, SRH is on the verge of losing a tipping point, and winning alone is what keeps them optimistic. The 2016 champions are based largely on the top four: Johnny Burstow, Warner, Manish Bundy and Ken Williamson. They still couldn't find a finisher in their middle order. It was this factor, along with Williamson's injury, that drove Warner down the standings in his previous match against the Kolkata Knight Riders. He ended up pushing the match into super.RR vs SRH Pitch And Toss ReportWith first-round average scores of 174, the Dubai International Cricket Stadium saw its fair share of excitement in IPL 2020. The Bolins succeeded in this place, with enough movement available off the field on the roof to keep them interested. Despite the dimensions of the playing field in their hands, the teams preferred to see outside the inaugural stage as the pacemakers dominated the center with a bowling swing.RR vs SRH Fantasy TipsJonny Bairstow, Priyam Garg, David Warner (VC), Jos Buttler, Steve Smith, Abdul Samad, Ben Stokes (C), Jofra Archer, Rashid Khan, Kartik Tyagi and T Natarajan.RR vs SRH Predicted Playing XIRajasthan Royals: Ben Stokes, Robin Uthappa, Sanju Samson (WK), Steve Smith (C), Jos Buttler, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Ankit Rajpoot and Kartik Tyagi.Sunrisers Hyderabad: Jonny Bairstow (WK), David Warner (C), Kane Williamson/Mohammad Nabi, Priyam Garg, Manish Pandey, Abdul Samad, Vijay Shankar, Sandeep Sharma, Basil Thampi, Rashid Khan and T NatarajanRR vs SRH Full Squads Rajasthan Royals: Steve Smith (C), David Miller, Manan Vohra, Riyan Parag, Robin Uthappa, Shashank Singh, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ben Stokes, MahipalLomror, Shreyas Gopal, Tom Curran, Anuj Rawat, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Akash Singh, Andrew Tye, Aniruddha Joshi, Ankit Rajpoot, Jaydev Unadkat, Jofra Archer, Kartik Tyagi, Mayank Markande, Oshane Thomas, Rahul Tewatia, Varun Aaron.Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (C), Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, ShreevatsGoswaRR, Virat Singh, Priyam Garg, WriddhimanSaha, Abdul Samad, Vijay Shankar, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Jason Holder, Abhishek Sharma, B Sandeep, Sanjay Yadav, Fabian Allen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, Shahbaz Nadeem, Siddharth Kaul, Billy Stanlake, T Natarajan, Basil Thampi.Read More About- Match 39- KKR VS RCB
