* Sulking Yuvraj Singh hits back at critics

Apr 19 (DNA) The bandwagon may have moved from Bangladesh to the UAE, but the awful memories of that 21-ball 11 against Sri Lanka are still haunting him. In fact, he has also failed to recover from the stinging criticism he received for flopping in the final of the World Twenty20. Perhaps, it has a lot to do with rioters pelting stones at his house. But even a swashbuckling 52 not out in his first match for the Royal Challengers Bangalore couldn't help. Yuvraj Singh is still sulking. Big time.

* Pietersen ridicules idea of day-night Tests

Apr 18 (ESPNCI) Kevin Pietersen has ridiculed the idea of day-night Test cricket, saying the game would be so different to proper Test cricket that we will need a whole new statistics database. Day-night Test cricket has been the ICC's beloved project of late. It has been experimenting pink-ball cricket in the UAE, and has also been encouraging its member boards to keep trying it in their domestic first-class cricket.

* Dropped catch cost MI the game: Malinga

Apr 18 (FPJ) Abu Dhabi- He shone with the ball with a four-wicket haul but Mumbai Indians’ pacer Lasith Malinga feels responsible for the team’s IPL loss to Kolkata Knight Riders, saying that a dropped catch by him cost the defending champions dearly.
