    Indian Premier League(IPL), Spot Fixing and Match Fixing Scandals

    Indian Premier League(IPL), Spot Fixing and Match Fixing Scandals

    As we see the biggest T20 league in the world, Indian Premier League(IPL) unfold in the UAE currently, we decided to shed light on a rather grim and dark time in the league's history that led to two franchises especially one of the most loved in the IPL, CSK being banned for two years. 

    We get our host Sooraj, who has been a CSK fan since the tournament's inception to provide his take on what that match fixing/betting scandal meant for ardent CSKians. How did it affect them? Did they dissociate themselves from the IPL those two years? And we round up on a hopeful note that the beautiful game must stay away from such scandals or controversies in future.

    'MonkeyGate' and 'SandPaper Gate'- An Aussie Fan's perspective

    'MonkeyGate' and 'SandPaper Gate'- An Aussie Fan's perspective

    Cricket is a beautiful game and will continue to be so. But one can't deny that there have been certain incidents/ scandals that have presented the game in bad light. Apart from being a Cricket Analyst, I have been and continue to support the Australian cricket team. The teams under Steve Waugh's leadership and Ricky Ponting have played a defining role in my passion for the game. 

    In this episode, I don the hat of an Australian fan and try to present how it must have been from the other side, especially when the cricketing fraternity and media were openly pouncing the Aussie side post the unfortunate incident that happened on 24th March, 2018.  Yes, those cricketers deserved to be punished, but was the treatment meted out to them fair and 'within the spirit of the game'?

    Chennai Super Kings(CSK), 'Whistle Podu' and Predictions

    Chennai Super Kings(CSK), 'Whistle Podu' and Predictions

    What does it take to have such a loyal, close knit support base like the CSK franchise have enjoyed over the years?? Why are fans so connected with CSK despite all the trials and tribulations they went through which included their two year ban from the tournament. 

    Every player who is a part of CSK feels like it's a family and we have  our host Sooraj pour his heart out about CSK and why he is so attached and connected with the franchise from the past twelve years!! This episode is a special tribute to all the 'Whistle Podu' fans who I am sure will be rooting for their franchise even this year!

    Dream11 Indian Premier League(IPL) 2020- A Preview

    Dream11 Indian Premier League(IPL) 2020- A Preview

    The most coveted and the biggest T20 carnival in world cricket- IPL is back!! After some doubts owing to COVID-19, now the stage is set for the cash rich league to kick start off in the UAE from September 19th, 2020. And quiet naturally, like everyone else we at Cricket Unplugged are eagerly waiting for the action to start! 

    In this episode we do a preview of our own, where we look at how this IPL could shape up sans the fans. Can the UAE and BCCI pull off such a high profile tournament blemish free? It certainly is a challenging task to keep so many players in a biosecure bubble for this long. 

    Also, we discuss the possible advantages of players having played in the English summer and the CPL who could add a lot of value for their respective franchises as they have got a lot of play time already in the past couple of months.

    Kerry Packer's World Series Cricket

    Kerry Packer's World Series Cricket

    Cricket might have received its razzmatazz in the truest form decades later, clear hints around the same were pretty much evident during the World Series Cricket played between 1977-1979.  The tournament might not have lived long but encapsulated all the contemporary facets of cricket especially that of the T20 leagues being played around the world.

    Coloured kits, protective helmets, field restrictions and day-night cricket, all of which are pretty common things in modern-day cricket were all pioneered during the World Series Cricket. Fitness, which has become a must during these times of the sport being played throughout the year, also gained awareness during the World Series Cricket for the players were required to play a lot of matches during a limited window.

    That being said, the biggest positive coming out from the tournament was the belief that the sport can be marketed successfully to gain affirmative results as far as the commerce was concerned.

    In this episode, we take you back time to a series or competition in World Cricket that has truly shaped the sport: much of what we see in Cricket now was envisioned and delivered way back in 1977-1979 by one man's vision- Kerry Packer!

    MSD, Sachin 'God of Cricket' Tendulkar and Virat Kohli

    MSD, Sachin 'God of Cricket' Tendulkar and Virat Kohli

    In the previous episode,  we at Cricket Unplugged took the listeners to what we felt are India's most iconic moments and memories in Test cricket over the years. The focus of this episode would be recollecting India's iconic performances over the years in Blues- ODIs and T20Is. 

    India under MSD's leadership paved the way for World glory not once but thrice. We look at how MSD's captaincy has played such an integral role in India and World cricket's growth in T20 cricket in particular as the inaugural World T20 win in 2007 led to the formation of the IPL that has changed the face of cricket. 

    We take the listeners down memory lane, by revisiting some iconic performances in the years gone by that featured the likes of MSD, Virat Kohli and a certain Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar!
