    New ODI rules a challenge - Dhoni
    149210 - ICC Champions Trophy 2013
    India captain MS Dhoni has said one of the challenges facing the side in England during the Champions Trophy will be adjusting to the new ODI rules. He said the team had enough time to acclimatise, with two warm-up games scheduled before the opening match against South Africa on June 6.
    Since the new rules were implemented in January, India have played ODIs at home but this will be their first experience of them in foreign conditions, where the seamers will have a bigger role. Captains have said the rules haven't been fair on the bowlers, especially the spinners, with not more than four fielders allowed outside the 30-yard circle at any stage of the innings. Bowlers can bowl two bouncers an over and the Powerplays will have to be completed by the 40th over.
    "There are a few challenges like the new ODI rules and we will be playing outside the subcontinent for the first time under the new rules," Dhoni said in Mumbai ahead of the team's departure for England. "We will have to adjust to the new rule of five fielders being inside (the circle), the length they need to bowl, how quickly they adapt to the wicket, which areas to bowl.
    "The good thing is we have two practice matches leading up to the tournament. We also have enough time before the first game, so there is enough time to adjust."
    In the past, India have fared poorly in tournaments staged immediately after the IPL. The team failed to make the semi-finals in the 2009 and 2010 World T20 tournaments, but Dhoni said the players' form during the IPL was encouraging.
    "With the kind of fitness level that is going around right now, each and every member is looking fit," Dhoni said. "All of them have played good cricket in the IPL or before the IPL. So most of them are in very good touch. As far as the fitness is concerned we have not received any official reports about any player being unfit, so that is a good sign."
    Though the seamers are expected to play a major role, the squad has three spinners in R Ashwin, Amit Mishra and Ravindra Jadeja. India's coach Duncan Fletcher felt the spinners will have an important role to play at certain venues.
    "As MS mentioned earlier it is generally going to be seamer-friendly, you never know, like Cardiff for example, it is known there to be a turning wicket, very slow and not very different to what you might get in India," Fletcher said. "You've got to be prepared to play two spinners. If one is injured, there is a back-up. We have a balanced side."
    India will be without their regular opening pair of Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir, both dropped on form. Dhoni was confident that the new pair of Shikhar Dhawan and M Vijay would carry forward their form from the Test series against Australia.
    "Our two openers had done well at the Test level recently," Dhoni said. "I know it is a different challenge in the ODIs, you have to accelerate but at the same time it is important that we have a good start from which we can capitalise on, and as Duncan rightly said this is an opportunity for the youngsters. Shikhar and Vijay have been very consistent."
    Dhoni was reminded of India's last ODI series in England, in 2011, where the side lost the five-match series 3-0 after losing all four Tests. Dhoni said the team had fared better than the results suggested.
    "Rain was a big factor, we lost all the tosses. It didn't even reach the stage where it could have decided by Duckworth/Lewis," Dhoni said. "The spinners had to literally deal with the wet ball and it was not possible for them to use their skills. The performance of the ODI squad was good, if you don't see just the results."

    Gibson picks England as favourites


    158401 - ICC Champions Trophy 2013

    West Indies coach Ottis Gibson has picked out hosts England as the team to beat in this year's Champions Trophy because of their familiarity with conditions in the early summer.

    "England would be the best team to play in England in these conditions at this time of the year" Gibson said. The tournament will be played between June 6 and 23, and James Anderson and Stuart Broad have found form in the on-going Test series against New Zealand. "To my mind, they are the favourites and for the rest of the seven teams, it is who gets settled and used to the conditions quickly enough.

    "And that's what our aim is - to get there and get ourselves acclimatised as quickly as possible," Gibson said. "We know that we have a lot of guys who have played in England before in those conditions but it is all about gelling as soon as we can and making sure that when the main event comes on June 7, we are ready for that."

    West Indies, who had won the Champions Trophy the last time it was held in England in 2004, square off against Pakistan in their first match at The Oval.

    Gibson's prediction and wariness of English conditions were not unfounded. At almost the same time last year when West Indies toured England, their sole victory was in a one-day game against Middle+++. Though Marlon Samuels racked up a century and three fifties, England won the three Test series 2-0 and then wrapped up the three-ODI series 2-0 and lone T20 as well.

    West Indies, however, rounded off 2012 by becoming the T20 world champions, beating the hosts Sri Lanka in the final. "Winning major events gives the confidence" Gibson said. "There will be some pressure of course, but the fact that we have won the last major event means that we get confidence from it also, and there is a lot of belief among the players."
    Gibson said the conditions might also impact the playing eleven. "It might be that we think when we are playing subcontinental teams that play spin very well, we might want to play an extra fast bowler or whatever the case may be. We don't know that yet."

    West Indies, who had their first training session in Cardiff on Monday, targeted repeating their 2004 victory despite being in a group featuring India, South Africa and Pakistan. "Getting out of the group is our first challenge and getting to the quarter-finals and semi-finals, and then our aim is to be playing on the 23rd, in the finals. I think we have a pretty good record in finals."

    Misbah upholds Pakistan faith

    158628 - ICC Champions Trophy 2013
    Pakistan's captain, Misbah-ul-Haq, has just turned 39 and he was asked at his side's introductory media conference ahead of the Champions Trophy how he would celebrate it. "Just going for practice," he said.
    There have been more exciting birthdays, but there have been few more wisely spent. What Pakistan need more than anything is a quiet time in their first appearance in England since a spot-fixing scandal in 2010 ended with three of their players serving custodial sentences and their reputation once again dragged through the mud.
    Even as Misbah tried to give an impression of solidity, the headlines were again suggesting that all was not well. As he sat down, attention centred upon the suspension of the PCB's chairman, Zaka Ashraf, by the High Court in Islamabad pending investigations of what Justice Shaukat Siddiqui called a "polluted" election process.
    Once that had been digested, talk turned to Asad Rauf's protestations of innocence after he had been withdrawn from the Champions Trophy umpiring panel amid media reports in India that he was under police investigation as part of the IPL betting scandal.
    Pakistan's supporters must despair of better times. Their side will invariably possess volatile talent and their supporters can be expected to be out in force, especially in Birmingham, where they play two of their three group matches, against South Africa and India. Just for once, though, they would benefit from a lot less fun and a lot more sense.
    Their warm-up matches have not augured well. They were rained on in Scotland and in Ireland they came perilously close to becoming the first Full Member nation to lose a series to an Associate. Ireland drew the first game thanks to Kevin O'Brien's blistering 84 from 47 balls in Clontarf and then seemed to have the second match won only for Kamran Akmal and Wahab Riaz to pull off a spectacular run chase.
    Misbah, having experienced Ireland and Scotland, is probably the only Champions Trophy captain to arrive in England thinking that when it comes to the swinging ball things can only get easier.
    "I think coming from Pakistan it's really difficult to adjust to the conditions, especially the weather," he said, "but we have played a game in Scotland and then in Ireland two games, so it really helped us to acclimatise here, especially now it's really cold here also.
    "In Ireland especially, the ball was really moving in the air. So everybody has suggested that, and they're ready to just face those sort of conditions. I think in England especially it will be better than Ireland, so I think mentally everybody is ready and now getting ready for this tournament."
    Misbah has been a solid upholder of the faith in such taxing times for cricket's itinerant nation. There is a staunchness about him that goes down well after the reign of Salman Butt, who initially charmed the English media with his sharp wit and well-modulated accent, but who became regarded as a latter-day snake-oil salesman after a tabloid newspaper sting led to the captain and two fast bowlers, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir, bringing shame upon Pakistan cricket.
    Birmingham's large number of Pakistan supporters should help them feel at home, their loyalty never wavering despite constant slights upon it. The final group match against India on June 15 sold out in three hours and, in a group also containing South Africa and West Indies, there is every chance it could prove critical to at least one of the side's chances of reaching the semi-finals.
    "I'd say it's special for us because a lot of fans here are for the Pakistan cricket team," Misbah said. "I haven't played before here, but Pakistan really had a good record here. Even in the last series, Pakistan won a Test match and played really well. We're really looking forward to enjoying these games."
    Pakistan's Edgbaston record is actually not remotely as spectacular as Misbah imagines. In all competitions, they have won six, lost nine and drawn three. They lost their last Test in Birmingham against England three years ago and also lost their last ODI on the ground in 2006. Misbah has never lost at Edgbaston - but then he has never played at Edgbaston.
    He was right about his 39th birthday, though, even if the rain did affect his attempts to practice.
