I met themafter a month and the first thing is they are very very committed to the game and to whatever I have asked them to do in a month's time. I think they have been following it diligently and I can see the difference in them right now. Because whatever they say is one thing but as a psychologist I also assess the players through their body language and nonverbal cues. I think am getting a very good feedback through that because I feel 90% of the players are really benefiting out of it and that's what will continue if they stick to the plan that has been given to them.

The concern is to having it keep it going: Katich


15th April 2018
Kolkata Knight Riders’ batting middle-order has been talk of the town since the auction as it appeared to be the weakest link in the team but batting coach Simon Katich refused to acknowledge it as a concern and claimed that his batsmen are in good form and the only concern is to having get going.
“I don’t think our middle order is a big concern. Look at the way Robin Uthappa played against Chennai, Nitish Rana also played well against RCB and in the last match too but Manish Pandey caught him off an extraordinary effort. Dinesh Karthik is also in great form and most importantly all of them are hitting the ball well which is good thing. The main concern is to having it keep going,” said Katich.
The chance of getting back to the winning ways are very thin if Kolkata Knight Riders fail to perform well with both bat and ball against Delhi Daredevils, believes KKR batting coach Simon Katich.

SRH win big at Eden


14th April 2018
The KKR think-tank have their hands full. For the former Knights have now come back to haunt the present crop at Eden Gardens as Sunrisers Hyderabad registered their first win at this venue defeating Knight Riders by 5 wickets tonight.
Chasing KKR’s 138 for 8, SRH reached the target losing just 5 wickets and six balls to spare.
Batting Madness: Dinesh Karthik is a seasoned cricketer and a tempered customer. But constant tinkering with the batting order and mindless selection is letting the team down. Robin Uthappa was promoted to open the batting despite Sunil Narin giving the team strong starts. To bring Narin three down made no sense as was his coming low down the order. Ever team gets down to business with a definite ledger of work. But coming out to bat KKR did not look to have set a target. As a result the stop and start format continued, and no batsman other than Chris Lynn 49 off 34 and Dinesh Karthik 29 off 27 balls impressed.

Bengal book Punjab in final of U23 Natl One-Day meet


11th February 2018
The Bengal U23 team continued their good run in the Men’s cricket Under 23 One Day League and Knockout beating Kerala by three runs in a cliff-hanger of a semi-final in Kanpur to book a final against Punjab.
Flamboyant bowling from Amit Kuila and enchanting spin from Prayas Roy Burman made sure that Kerala fell short of the very achievable 196 runs target by three runs. On a pitch that assisted the bowlers and deteriorated with every over Amit Kuila bowled with spink and imagination as he picked three for 40 runs that included the top three of the Kerala batting order Rohan Kunnummal (19), Sachin Suresh (12) and Ammer Zeeshan (5) that literally broke the back of their attack.
While Ananta Saha and Raju Haldar chipped in with a wicket each, it was young Prayas who bowled with guile and variation to run through the middle-order of Kerala batting. His figures of 4 for 36 made the Bengal total look really tall. And once he returned skipper Salman Nizar (37) and Harikrishnan (57) who looked to take the game away, it was curtains on Kerala’s hopes.  They were bowled out for 193 with two balls to spare.
