Large ODI totals to include an ODI hat-trick

Australia’s total of 289 for 8 at Hobart the other day was highest by side in a limited-overs international match to include a hat-trick. The previous highest was 283/10 by West Indies against South Africa at Bridgetown in March 2005. Bond’s Hat-trick could not prevent Australia from winning and interestingly Shane Bond became only the second bowler after Shahadat Hossain of Bangladesh to take a hat-trick in a losing effort. The table below provides list of highest ODI totals to include a hat-trick.

India rest Ganguly, Lara undecided for third match

India will rest former skipper Sourav Ganguly from Saturday’s (today’s) limited-overs international to try out other batsmen with the upcoming World Cup in sight, even as the West Indies are not sure of injured captain Brian Lara turning out.

Having secured an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the four-match series, India can afford to experiment with its combination and also test the match-fitness of middle-order batsman Yuvraj Singh, who is returning two months after injuring his knee during the Champions Trophy.

Singh, seasoned leg-spinner Anil Kumble, young opener Robin Uthappa and middle-order batsman Suresh Raina are the four changes to the Indian line-up that clinched a 20-run victory in the low-scoring second one-dayer on Wednesday.

Honours even as Pakistan hit back

Pakistan fought back after a first innings collapse on the first day of the series-deciding third and final Test against South Africa here at Newlands on Friday.

South Africa were 131 for five at the close of play in reply to Pakistan’s 157 all out.

Mohammad Yousuf saved Pakistan from total embarrassment, hitting more than half his team’s runs before being last man out for a sparkling 83, made off 90 balls. Makhaya Ntini and Jacques Kallis took four wickets each as Pakistan’s batting folded after they were sent in to bat.

Australia embarrass insipid England in tri-series

England’s horror tour of Australia hit rock bottom on Friday when the home side routed them for just 110 and beat them by nine wickets in their triangular one-day series match here at the Adelaide Oval.

Australia cruised to the victory target, finishing on 111 for one from just 24.3 overs and claiming a bonus point in the process.

It was unbeaten Australia’s fifth win and they are already guaranteed a berth in the tri-series finals, while the mentally shattered English are anchored at the foot of the table with just one win from five games.

Pakistan to name ODI squad for South Africa series today

Pakistan will name their squad for next month’s one-day series against South Africa today, chief selector Wasim Bari said on Friday.

Bari was supposed to announce the squad on Friday but has delayed it by a day after failing to get in touch with Inzamam-ul-Haq to gather the Pakistan captain’s input on the issue.

“I would talk to Inzamam later tonight or tomorrow morning before formally announcing the team for the one-day series,” said Bari.

The former Test wicket-keeper said that he and fellow selectors have agreed on a line-up and just need a final input from the Pakistan team management, especially Inzamam.
