Is it all new? Welcome to 2018
Happy New Year to one and all. 2018 arrives and it's less than 100 days to the first CC1 game of the new season and we are the side there by the skin of our teeth. What does this year hold I wonder? Here's a few things to ponder.
Kohli and Company Step into the Whirlwind
India the current No. 1 Test side by a large margin, have had a dream run in Test cricket starting with the tour to Bangladesh in 2014-15. Their dominance has been stunning. 21 wins and only 2 losses studded across 9 consecutive series wins, where they beat every team including South Africa, Australia, England, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, West Indies, and Bangladesh. In the process Virat Kohli is now the Only captain in Test history to have lost less than 10% of his matches. Having lost only 3 out of his 32 Tests. Not Steve Waugh, not Don Bradman, not Ricky Ponting, not Clive Lloyd, and certainly not Steve Smith who has lost nearly one third of the matches he has captained can match his record currently. But Team India and Kohli himself are about to be Tested like they haven't been in a long while.
India to Host Afghanistan For Debut Test Match
