Fixing Conspiracy. India vs New Zealand T20 Series.

INDIA vs NEW ZELAND SERIES FIXEDINDIA vs NEW ZELAND SERIES FIXED

India vs New Zealand T20 Series was one of the most eventful T20 series of all time. Though the results might depict it as a one-sided affair, however, it surely wasn’t and some really competitive cricket was played by both teams.

As the saying goes that Cricket is a game of chance and your luck or back luck can play an important role in determining the outcomes of a game but in case of Blackcaps, its either some really bad luck or there is a reason for consistently losing matches from good positions. Why does it happen to NZ? Let’s dive into it.

New Zealand has some of the finest International quality players in their playing XI yet they keep on losing pressure games. Here is the conspiracy theory a man from the underground explains it.

New Zealand v India T20s - Men's

THE BIG CONSPIRACY

Was it all Fixed? Pre-planned? Rigged?

World of cricket had to witness a whitewash to New Zealand after they eliminated team India from the ICC World Cup 2019 under strange circumstances.
India has to be a favorite for the coming world cup in India and for that matter being a 4th or 5th ranked team on ICC T20 charts the betting odds are against them. So they needed big points. Something like a clean whitewash in a longer series lets say a long 5 match series. Which is exactly what happened.

Normally nobody plays this long T20 bilateral series offshore. A 5 match series couldn’t be just a one-sided affair for the sponsors. They cannot just let the marketing money die off because of unexciting one-sided cricket. Therefore you get not one but two super-over matches. Yes, 2 in a row. But India had to come out as unbelievable winners so India always bats first in the match. Because that earns more money then India always bats second in the super over. So there is that hero effect from the star batsmen of India.
Series ended in a win-win situation for everyone. In New Zealand, sponsors and cricket board racked huge money for the close matches watched by millions and sponsor the heavy campaigns.

Sports is a science in today’s day and age. It’s all the game of numbers. gather enough numbers on to your side and the odds shift in our favor. Like every equation there are variable, It doesn’t have to be a full-rigged system. you just need a handful of significant variables manipulation and the whole system is rigged without anyone (even players) knowing.

India won it straight 5 out of 5. Getting the numbers they needed to rack up in the top 4. There is not so much T20 Cricket ahead in the season for India as there is a long IPL season in between. Getting the players they need for IPL n coming world cup also eliminating the possibility of MS Dhoni return into the team.

Conclusion

This conspiracy theory does post some potent questions and implies that the world we live in is not as simple as it seems. Common man lives in a fool’s Paradise. However, there is no clear proof to it and may go down as just a theory but it’s up to the people who choose to believe or not believe it. Event fixing and betting involved in the sport of cricket is nothing new for the cricket world as the whole cricket machinery works like a corporation. This is just a fan theory and we take no responsibility for it in any way.

Indian cricket team is on a roll right from the start of this new year 2020. They won against the lesser teams, then gave a huge send off to the mighty Aussies in ODIs. And now the Blackcaps are under the hammer. India has won 2 T20s on a trot.

Much anticipated 5 match T20 series against the New Zealanders started off at Eden Park on 24th-Jan when team India decided to bowl first. New Zealand came up with a fair bating performance score in excess of 200 runs in the first innings. Little they knew that a target of 204 will prove to be a walk in the park for the men in blue. India won the match comprehensively by 6 wickets in the 19th over. Match Report and Scorecard.

Second T20I today was anticipated to be more competitive however, It was a total opposite of what was expected. It was a low scoring match which didn’t post any hurdle to Team India. It started off with a shaky New Zealand start and ended with yet another strong Indian batting performance. 2nd T20I scorecard and Details. The common thing between the two matches was KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer splendid batting display. Rishab Pant who is not a part of the playing XI is finding it more and more tougher to come back to the Indian T20 side due to KL Rahul’s inroads with the bat and gloves.

Shreyas Iyer vs KL Rahul in T20I

Is KL Rahul better than Rohit Sharma in T20I?

Well here is a graph showing the dip in Hitman’s recent year’s T20 performance whereas KL Rahul is just peaking at the right time.

Is KL Rahul better than Rishab Pant?

this one is particularly difficult to call as in terms of stats and figures there isn’t really much to decide from. However, Captain Virat Kohli has certainly weighted his support towards the KL Rahul camp recently where he expressed his views about KL Rahul and how he see him a perfect fit for the wicket keeping role. This means that Virat Kohli is certainly more comfortable with KL Rahul with the gloves then Rishab Pant who hasn’t had so much of a successful run in recent times.

INDIA WINS! Takes the series 2-1

India Cricket Team MatchesIndia Cricket Team Matches

Rohit Sharma “The Hitman” did it once again for the men in blue in today’s final match against Australia. Rohit’s mammoth 119 runs and a partnership of 137 between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli stole the show.

Australia after a winning the toss started the proceedings with the bat. The unusual shaky and careful start went wrong when David Warner was dismissed early by Muhammad Shami on 3 runs. But Australia came back in to the match when the masterclass Steve Smith came to the crease and played some sparkling shots for his hard fought 131 runs innings on just 132 balls. Smith Smashed 14 fours and 1 huge six and brought Australia to a very respectable total of 286. For a pressure final it was a good score but considering the last batting performance of Team India it was a par score. Indian batsmen really pumped up the game in the last ODI when they got 340 runs and they certainly fancied them selves to get anything below 300 today.

It was Mohammed Shami who set it up for India by taking 4 Aussie wickets in the final match but his most priced scalp today was Steve Smith who was cursing when got out to a good ball from Muhammad Shami.

Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul came in to start the batting innings for India and started off rather freely, playing some fine strokes. KL Rahul was picked up early by the Aussies thanks to Ashton Agar. Rahul was found wanting in front of stumps and was given out lbw. Rohit continued playing his shots and the more he played the tougher it became to come back for Australia. A mammoth 137 runs partnership between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli made it a little to easy for India in the final match of the ODI series. Adam Zampa got Rohit Sharma out when he was batting on 119 caught off an edge on a mistimed slog. but it was a little too late for the Aussies and a settled Virat was batting with full command at the other end. India required on;y run a ball basic game play to win the final from there, which they did comfortably in the end.

India won the ODI series against the Australians series 2-1. Where initially many favored the Aussies to win the series rather comfortably after their splendid blitz in the first ODI. but credit goes to the men in blue for coming back stronger and winning it for India in the most convincing manner possible.

Rohit Sharma was declared man of the match.

Australian Finch says we have to be disciplined in India

AARON FINCH ON INDIA Vs AUSTRALIA ODI SERIES 2020AARON FINCH ON INDIA Vs AUSTRALIA ODI SERIES 2020

Aaron finch captain of an Australian cricket team has recently spoken to the media in a pre-Series interview saying that ” In India, you have to be more disciplined”. His views came today after a question from the reporter on the upcoming INDIA vs AUSTRALIA ODI SERIES 2020.

HAVE TO BE DISCIPLINED HE SAID

Aaron Finch said that ” need to be much disciplined with the basics, A lot of times you can get caught into things that aren’t relevant and end the end of the day you need to stick with the basics.

Cricket is Irrelevant.

Aaron Finch was also asked questions on Australian wildfire with is the worst bushfire breakout in history. Aaron Finch said that ” Cricket is not significant in front of what is happening in Australia. Obviously, everyone is affected due to the bushfire in Australia and cricket takes a backseat in such moments. All we players can do is bring some smiles on the face of fans with our performance and excitement of cricket.”

AUSTRALIA IN SUPER FORM

Australia had a dream run so far after their exit from the ICC ODI World cup 2019 and since then they have won almost everything they have played across all formats. Australia had the better of teams like NZ in Test, England in Ashes and Pakistan in T20s. They had successfully whitewashed Pakistan and Sri Lanka in their last series but now Australia is in India to face the more in form Indian cricket team.

Austalia and India had an ODI series in may last season which Australia won by 3-2. and that was before the world cup earlier this year. But now the Indian team has also had a very successful run lately and certainly in a much more lethal form now.

INDIA vs SRI LANKA Series Live Cricket Stream

INDIA Vs SRI LANKA SERIESINDIA Vs SRI LANKA SERIES

Indian Cricket Team had a phenomenal record in the year 2019 and now they are up against the new and improved Sri Lankan Team starting off the year 2020.

Sri Lanka had a mixed season in the shorter format where they were successful against Pakistan and whitewashed Pakistan which is Number-1 T20 side in the world on ICC Rankings. However, SL was heavily defeated by Australia on a recent tour.

SRI LANKA THREAT OR A TREAT FOR INDIA?

India is a strong team but does Sri Lanka post any series threat in the coming series? The answer is yes! Sri Lanka might have been defeated on the typical Australian pitches with lush green pitches and huge long Aussie boundaries, more suited for the Aussie style of cricket. SL vs AUS was surely a disaster but when they played in Pakistan on subcontinent flat pitches they were able to topple the top side of the world with a very weak side missing all key players. SL will believe they can replicate their performance in Pakistan against Team India in the subcontinent conditions.

On the flip side, India recently played against the West Indies and though they won the series, There were quite a few nervous times in the series where West Indies had them under pressure and it was really a competitive series for India which they won 2-1 in the end. However, It goes without saying that Sri Lanka will have to produce their best in order to worry India on their home soil where they almost have an invincible record.

Angelo Mathews is called up for the INDA vs SRI LANKA series. He will play under the captaincy of Lasith Malinga who will be captaining the side in all three T20s against India.

This will be a good test for Team India who will be facing Australia right after this series and then the New Zealanders after that.

TEAMS AND PLAYING XI FOR INDIA vs SRI LANKA SERIES

INDIAN TEAM:

Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (c), Ravindra Jadeja, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shivam Dube, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Jasprit Bumrah, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Sanju Samson, Manish Pandey.

SRI LANKAN TEAM:

Avishka Fernando, Lasith Malinga (c), Dasun Shanaka, Kusal Perera, Niroshan Dickwella, Kasun Rajitha, Dhananjaya De Silva, Isuru Udana, Angelo Mathews, Oshada Fernando, Wanindu Hasaranga, Lahiru Kumara, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Kusal Mendis, Lakshan Sandakan, Dhanushka Gunathilaka
