#RandomCricketPhotosThatMakeMeHappy Makes me more queasy than happy, to be honest. It beats me how till late 70's no batsman ever thought of coming out to bat wearing a helmet before Graham Yallop did it in 1978 for the entire series against, who else, but West Indies. He finished the series with 317 runs at an average of 45.29 and started a revolution. A revolution that saved the life of a certain Justin Langer for sure who got hit on the head with the first ball of his Test career as well as with the first ball of his 100th Test. And those are just two of many times Langer copped a vicious bouncer on the head. For all the arguments about the game becoming more and more biased in the favour of batsman, I always feel that we often don't take into account how batsmen are pretty much always in mortal danger against pacers. Ask any cricket captain and they would tell you that almost all pacers are bullies when they get the ball in their hands and derive great amount of pleasure out of knocking a batsman's helmet off. I think I am happier with more batsmen looking like gladiators than dropping like flies. Although, I guess in times to come, it would be prudent to provide bowlers with helmets as well. #cricket #australia #wicb #chrisgayle #icc #WorldCup2019 #msdhoni #viratkohli #stevesmith #davidwarner #cricketworldcup #ICCWorldCup2019 #lords #sachin #ipl #indiancricketteam #bcci #pcb #proteasfire #ODI #T20 #T20I #bleedblue #ECB #msd #srt

It's rare very rare! Strange thing happened yesterday.. #Indiancricketteam #bcci #viratkohli #msdhoni #cricket #odi

#RandomCricketPhotosThatMakeMeHappy Get distracted by the beautiful sight behind the bowler for a second and you might never see anything again. English batsmen facing the fearsome quartet of Holding, Marshall, Garner and that man Patterson (who West Indian wicket keeper called the fastest he ever kept to) at the Sabina Park, Jamaica in 1986. They got skittled out for 159 and 152 and West Indies romped to a win by 10 wickets after chasing 5 to win in the fourth innings. #cricket #jamaica #wicb #icc #WorldCup2019 #msdhoni #viratkohli #stevesmith #dwaynebravo #chrisgayle #cricketworldcup #ICCWorldCup2019 #lords #sachin #ipl #indiancricketteam #bcci #pcb #proteasfire #ODI #T20 #T20I #bleedblue #ECB #msd #srt

#RandomCricketPhotosThatMakeMeHappy Personal contests like these make cricket spicier. Mutual respect and admiration are nice things to have off the field but a little bit of needle between cricketers of the highest pedigree always make the game more watchable. Separated by a good 40 yards are two mercurial characters - Mitchell Johnson and Kevin Pietersen. While the runs no more flowed from the bat like they did in the past, it did little to change Pietersen's 'I'm next only to god' demeanor on the crease. But he was taming Mitchell Johnson who with his No shave November Mo had acquired this rather demonic quality and pace that scared most English batsmen witless in Ashes 2013.` But not Pietersen, who after having issues with the sight screen, began gardening down the pitch, much to Johnson's dismay. The best thing about this photo is that you can almost hear Johnson screaming "Freaking get on with it, @#$#%$!" #cricket #australia #newzealandcricket #icc #WorldCup2019 #msdhoni #viratkohli #stevesmith #mitchelljohnson #cricketworldcup #ICCWorldCup2019 #lords #sachin #ipl #indiancricketteam #bcci #pcb #proteasfire #ODI #T20 #T20I #bleedblue #ECB #msd #srt #kevinpietersen #kp24 #ashes

#RandomCricketPhotosThatMakeMeHappy Three back to back World Cups including a 21 ODI winning streak, that's how powerful the Aussie ODI side was in the 2000s, a complete contrast to the current team which has lost 4 straight bilateral series and has practically won nothing for a good 18 months now. As someone who didn't see the 'Mighty West Indies' of the 70s and 80s but only read about it, my definition of cricketing supremacy would always be what the Aussies managed to achieve in the first decade of the century. It felt so helpless to see team after team getting brushed aside by this band of ruthless hard nosed sledgers who loved bullying the opposition with bat, ball and obviously the tongue. Anyone who walked into the team seemed to be a world class find ready to take the cricketing world by storm. Most of them did and those who didn't did make an impact. Bichel, Bracken, Tait might not have had very long careers but for most part of their careers, they seemed as big a threat as any in the world. That's how good a unit Australia used to be at its peak. How times change! #cricket #australia #newzealandcricket #icc #WorldCup2019 #msdhoni #viratkohli #stevesmith #davidwarner #cricketworldcup #ICCWorldCup2019 #mcg #sachin #ipl #indiancricketteam #bcci #pcb #proteasfire #ODI #T20 #T20I #bleedblue #ECB #msd #srt

#RandomCricketPhotosThatMakeMeHappy Winning a Test against Australia in Australia after getting bundled out for 169 in the first innings is difficult. But winning a Test against Australia in Australia defending a mere 117 in the fourth innings is one ridiculous achievement. Bowling in Sydney heat, Fanie De Villiers, with a bit of swing and armpit sweat (he used to put the old ball up his armpit and use the sweat from there to shine one side of it) ran through the Australian batting order with a spell of 6 for 43 to snatch a thrilling 5 run victory for the Proteas. What's even more remarkable about this story is the man marshaling the troops for Proteas in the final innings was a man doing the job for the first time. An injury to Kepler Wessels had resulted in the team management giving the job to a 24 year-old Hansie Cronje, the youngest man in the squad. In hindsight, whether it was a masterstroke or a blunder (considering the future turn of events) is a debate for some other day. For now, one can just enjoy the infectious joy of a young captain and his main man who scripted a miracle in this photo. #cricket #australia #southafrica #icc #WorldCup2019 #msdhoni #viratkohli #abdevilliers #davidwarner #cricketworldcup #ICCWorldCup2019 #lords #sachin #ipl #indiancricketteam #bcci #pcb #proteasfire #ODI #T20 #T20I #bleedblue #msd #srt #sportstar #wisden
