KP not to play Big Bash League

Kevin Peitersen, who recently retired from the shorter version of the game, including ODIs and T20s, has said that he will stick to his T20 assignments of playing in the IPL and for Surrey apart from Test cricket. He has made clear that we wants to play in the longer version for England for at least another 4 years and does not wish to play ODIs for England due to the hectic schedule.

World's fastest man wants to play Warne and Gayle

The world's fastest man Usain Bolt is keen to play in the Big Bash League, according to the Melbourne Stars president who is on the verge of hiring him.

Bolt would prefer to open the bowling for the Stars and has experience of playing with international cricketers including Chris Gayle who he clean bowled in a charity match few years back.

Bolt would, however, require Cricket Australia's approval before he could sign up with the Stars.

Sydney Sixers win the first KFC Big Bash T20 League

The clash of the Titans - Sydney Sixers vs Perth Scorchers, as expectd, was full of action and drama.

Throughout the series, most of the teams decided to bat on winning the toss - same was the case today as Perth Scorchers chose to bat first. Gibbs and Ronchi both lost their wickets to Bret Lee early on but North, Marsh and Collingwood got their team up to a respectable score of 156/5.

For the Sydney Sixers, their openers did exactly what was the doctor ordered - Henriques hit a solid 70 of just 41 balls including 4 sixes while Keefe did great to support him scoring 48 of 46 balls. A quick fire 21 of 11 balls by Smith helped finish the job as the Sixers reached their target in 18.4 overs with a four.

Sydney Sixers win the first edition of the KFC T20 Big Bash League in style by 7 wickets. Great stuff .....
