Current Test matches.....

Today, first test match between India and West Indies started at Sabina Park, Kingston - Jamaica. The toss was won by the Indians and they chose to bat first. Newbies Abhinav Mukund and Murali Vijay opened the batting innings for India. Both did not play well and finally ended up in going back to pavilion. Even experienced player VVS Laxman was not on top today. India have currently scored 69 runs and lost 4 wickets in 25.3 overs (IND: 69/4, 25.3 over). The wall "Rahul Dravid" is still on crease with Suresh Raina. Still session 1 is on and they have already lost 4 wickets which is a bad sign for the Indians. Ravi Rampaul made the break by removing both the openers. As of now West Indians are in strong position.

Today was the last day of the 3rd and the final test which held in The Rose Bowl, Southampton between England and Srilanka. England were in strong hopes that they will win the 3rd test as they outplayed the Srilankans in the first 2 innings and also took 3 wickets in the 3rd innings very quickly. But they could not stop skipper Kumar Sangakkara and Thilan Samaraweera. Skipper scored his century and departed scoring 119 runs. Thilan Samaraweera stayed unbeaten 87 runs before rain could stop the match. The match was drawn.

England won the series by 1-0. First match was won by England and the next 2 matches was drawn. Man of the match was Chris Tremlett and the man of the match was awarded to 2 people Chris Tremlett and Prasanna Jayawardene.

On 25th of June they will be playing a One-off Twenty20 International cricket match which will be followed by 5 ODI matches.
