Cricketing battles to watch out for

With the countdown to ICC cricket world cup in its final lap, there is frenzy in the Indian media and public. This will be the last world cup for many of the games stalwarts, that gives us every reason to go insane. These Cricketers have conquered almost all Cricketing records in their playing careers and set virtually unreachable benchmarks. By the way, they aren’t finished yet, they still pose threat to their own records. Both the leading run getter and leading wicket taker will play their last big tournament ( It will be interesting to watch at what stage these two giants will come face-to-face ). That makes it super special for every Cricket lover go totally berserk.

Cricket is team sport however, with these legends gracing the game the stakes are much higher. Here are few mouth watering bat versus ball must watch battles.

 

1. Sachin vs Shoaib – The best batsman in the world against the Rawalpindi express. These men have already provided many a memorable contests but this one is supposed to be the biggest showdown between the greats.

 

 

2. Ponting vs Bhajji – Their rivalry dates back to 2001. Bhajji repeatedly claimed Punter’s wicket with ridiculous ease. Over the decade Bhajji consistently terrorized Ponting with his spin or at times lack of it. Of course, Ponting did succeed few times however, it looks like Bhajji might have the last laugh yet again.

 

 

3. Kallis vs Muralitharan – Everyone’s asking the same question. Can Kallis get through Murali magic?

 

 

4. Sehwag vs Steyn – The South African has invariably come out top but, this is sub-continent, hoping for a better show from Sehwag

 

 

5. Gayle vs Lee – With Lee aspiring to end his career on a high, Will the maverick West Indian gate-crash his farewell party? Lets wait and watch.

 

 

 

What match-ups are you looking forward to this WC?
