Time for some exciting cricket live on HotStar and Star Sports HD network. An absolute treat for the test lovers. India takes on England in a five test match series at home. Christened as a revenge series for India after failing against England in last three test series, the excitement has really built up high. Virat Kohli and his men are seated at the top position of ICC Test Rankings after a series of successes. Meanwhile England have just concluded a hard fought series against Bangladesh. Enjoy live cricket streaming on HotStar with Hindi and English commentary.

The series will be followed by an ODI and T20 series. This would be the time MS Dhoni would be back in action. But this won't be happening soon as we have five exciting test matches before that. Following is the full schedule for all cricket fans.

India vs England Test Series:
1st Test - 9th November 2016 - Rajkot
2nd Test - 17th November 2016 - Visakhapatnam
3rd Test - 26th November 2016 - Mohali
4th Test - 8th December 2016 - Mumbai
5th Test - 16th December 2016 - Chennai

India vs England ODI series:
1st ODI - 15th January 2017 - Pune
2nd ODI - 19th January 2017 - Cuttack
3rd ODI - 22nd January 2017 - Kolkata

India vs England T20 International series:
1st T20 - 26th January 2017 - Kanpur
2nd T20 - 29th January 2017 - Nagpur
3rd T20 - 1st February 2017 - Bengaluru

Sans some injuries and out of the form candidates, the biggest threat for England's chances would be the spin trio from India. Banking on the spin friendly wickets, Virat Kohli would go ahead with three spinners without any hesitation. Ashwin, Jadeja and Mishra are good enough to make inroads in the England batting line up.

While England have some good batsmen like Root and Cook and a good amalgamation of aggressive batsmen like Woakes and Stokes. If they somehow manage to tackle the spin well, they would really post a threat to India's position as favourites in this series.

Indians too have a strong batting line up. Gambhir, Rahane, Pujara, Kohli, Saha and many more to name. Even Ashwin has played some magical innings in the recent past along with the likes of Ravindra Jadeja.

Overall this promises to be an exciting test series followed by some enthralling limited over cricket in January and February. Stay tuned for more updates. Till then, enjoy live cricket streaming on HotStar and Star Sports in India.

India vs New Zealand Live Cricket Streaming Information

Finally the test cricket lovers in India get a big treat at home. India plays New Zealand in a three test series at home. Above all the first test match of this series marks the 500th test match for India. While the visiting team NZ will try to clinch their first ever test series win here, India will try to make the 500th test match memorable first and then clinch the series also. India vs New Zealand 2016 test series live cricket streaming will be available on HotStar and Star Sports website in India. Star Sports HD TV channels will bring live telecast with Hindi and English commentary.

Venue:
The first test match will be held at Kanpur.

Team Squads:
India: Virat Kohli (captain), KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Wriddhiman Saha, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshvar Kumar, Amit Mishra, R Ashwin, Umesh Yadav.

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Trent Boult, Ross Taylor, Doug Bracewell, Mark Craig, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, James Neesham, Henry Nicholls, Luke Ronchi, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Neil Wagner, BJ Watling.

Indian team is considered to be the favourites to win this series. Virat Kohli has had a great ride so far as the Indian test captain. A strong performance in Australia followed by test wins abroad (Sri Lanka and West Indies) along with a 3-0 test series win over South Africa at home - a lot to admire! He believes the 13 test match season will be career defining for the whole team.

KL Rahul is at the top of his form. He would be the first choice for Virat Kohli in the batting line up. Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara can create wonders at home. Rohit Sharma can bank on the home conditions and score big. R Ashwin has already done a great job with the bat against West Indies. Virat Kohli is the front runner and the face of Indian batting line up.

Indian conditions and if we don't talk about spin, it would be an incomplete story. New Zealand batsmen would have a tough time facing the Indian spinners. And above all if the pitch is spin friendly, we might see the matches ending in three to four days. R Ashwin, Amit Mishra and Ravindra Jadeja would try their hands on to clinch as many wickets as possible.

New Zealand is led by Kane Williamson who has been a leader from the front. He is a renowned batsmen with good leadership skills. He would love to go home with first ever series win in India. This would require a lot of focus not only from him but his whole team. They didn't perform upto the mark against Mumbai in the practice match. Overall the match was dominated by Mumbai.

Let us hope we have an exciting test match on hand with clear weather too. Two more test matches to follow after this one. We will keep you updated with match previews and reviews.

Live Cricket Streaming T20 Match India vs West Indies on HotStar and Star Sports HD

HotStar and Star Sports HD network in India will provide live cricket streaming and telecast of 2nd T20 between India and West Indies. First T20 was a dream game for all cricket fans. West Indies scored a mammoth 245 and India seemed to be easily chasing it. Last ball and Bravo managed to get MS Dhoni to take home West Indies by just one run! India ended the innings on 244 and missed a chance to chase the biggest T20 total! Let us see how India bounces back in the 2nd T20 here at Florida.

MS Dhoni has won the toss and elected to bowl first. He has included Amit Mishra and excluded Binny who was very expensive in the first T20 match. 

Lauderhill stadium has been absolutely pleasure for cricket fans and cricketers too. Praised by Anil Kumble for the quick pitch and outfield, the stadium also provides all necessary facilities to the cricketers and spectators. Good to see the game earning popularity in the US where cricket is still a not so known game!

Looking at the forecast there is a 60% probability of thunderstorms in the afternoon. The match already begun 40 minutes late due to technical reasons. Let us hope rain God shows mercy and we don't have any unwanted breaks.

Rain or no rain, we would certainly see rains of sixes again. We saw almost 30 plus sixes yesterday and highest number of total runs scored in an International T20 game. The cricket fans would expect similar such treat today when India meet West Indies for the 2nd and final T20 match.

Stay tuned with us for more match previews and reviews. We will provide more information on live cricket streaming official websites and apps for various cricket matches being played around the world.

India vs Zimbabwe 2016 ODI and T20 Series Live!

Last two tours to Zimbabwe resulted in India's favour with a score line of 5-0 and 3-0. Will it be a similar score line this time? Seems yes, because it is not only the second string young guns but also MS Dhoni who would be travelling to Zimbabwe for cricket. After 11 long years, Dhoni will play a cricket series in Zimbabwe. Watch India vs Zimbabwe live streaming on Ten Sports official website and live telecast on Ten 2 HD channel.

India will play three ODI and three T20 matches as mentioned below:

1st ODI on 11th June, 2nd ODI on 13th June, 3rd ODI on 15th June
1st T20 on 18th June, 2nd T20 on 20th June and 3rd T20I on 22nd June

India is lined up with lot of youngsters who would be roaring to go out and showcase their skills. Sans Dhoni the team is relatively inexperienced but good enough to register big wins in Zimbabwe. Most of them have played well in the IPL season and now they would snatch this opportunity to play for India with both hands.

Sanjay Bangar will be the coach for this tour. He believes he has got a very good squad to experiment with. Infact the squad is full of talent, it would be had to pick the final XI for a particular match. He is pretty confident the team will outplay Zimbabwe in all the matches.

MS Dhoni hasn't tasted too much of success in recent past. Asia Cup was a big win and three T20 matches win in Australia were worth watching. But the team couldn't go beyond semi finals of ODI and T20 world cups. Even that should be considered a decent show, but there are a lot of expectations from MS Dhoni. He has won all possible trophies in his regime so fans expect a lot more from him.

Kohli is already the captain of test side and there has been pressure on Dhoni to handover limited over captaincy to him. Dhoni has left the decision on BCCI. He will play ODI and T20 matches whereas he would rest when India would be busy playing lot many test matches in 2016-17. Australia, England and New Zealand are scheduled to visit India and hopefully Kohli would clear this test and win those series.

Head to head India has dominated over Zimbabwe. So there is no logic looking at the stats. While India looks very strong on paper, fans would expect good amount of resistance from Zimbabwean team. This would result in some good tight matches.

Watch ICC T20 World Cup 2016 Live Streaming on HotStar

The ICC T20 World Cup 2016 has got a grand start with the opening match between India and New Zealand. There are some really big and exciting matches to follow throughout the T20 World Cup. Watch live match streaming and scores from ICC T20 World Cup 2016 on HotStar. Also enjoy live telecast on Star Sports HD network in India with live Hindi and English commentary.

Team India play the hosts and hence they have an upper hand. They didn't click well against New Zealand in the opening match and now they have a daunting task ahead. India is placed in a group that is considered comparatively difficult. The group includes other teams like New Zealand, Australia, Pakistan and Bangladesh. 

The other group includes South Africa, England, West Indies, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka.

Although India is in a great form and considered as the top favourite side to lift the trophy, T20 cricket provides a lot of uncertainties. Pakistan and Sri Lanka are highly unpredicatble. They can also exploit the sub-continent conditions very well. Same goes with Bangladesh. They are at the top of their form. They defeated the likes of Pakistan and Sri Lanka to reach the Asia Cup finals.

New Zealand are a strong T20 outfit. The team is lead by Kane Williamson who looks pumped up in the field. Corey Anderson, Grant Elliott, Martin Guptill and other such players make the batting line up strong. They have a good bowling attack too.

Australia would always be the strongest, simply because they always hit the right combination. This time, probably spin would be a concern for them. Otherwise they have a relatively stronger team that can lift the T20 world cup for the first time ever.

South Africa too has a very strong team and could be considered as one of the top three favourites. They have powerful strikers of the ball and also a good pace battery.

West Indies squad suffered a lot of injury issues. A mix of experienced campaigners and some young guns make them underdogs. They give their best in the T20 format and have won the title in 2012. If someone like Chris Gayle gets going, he is literally unstoppable.

England led by Morgan looks a better outfit in the shortest version of the game. A good amalgamation of batsmen and bowlers make them a strong team in the winning contention.

Well, this is all about the teams. But as we keep saying, cricket can come up with surprises. While India have the better chances, other teams would equally fancy their chances in this T20 event. Enjoy the action live on HotStar.

Watch India vs Pakistan Live Streaming T20 World Cup 2016 Match HotStart

Irrespective of the situation in the points table, India vs Pakistan match is always the most viewed in any tournament. Indian team finds itself in a pressure situation with a big loss against New Zealand in the opening match. Whereas Pakistan has registered an emphatic win over Bangladesh in their first match. Both the teams would certainly be under pressure in this high voltage match at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Pakistan would be slightly relieved with a win under their belt. Watch India vs Pakistan live streaming and score on HotStar live cricket mobile app. Enjoy India vs Pakistan live match telecast on Star Sports HD and DoorDarshan (DD National Sports). Telecast will be available with live Hindi and English commentary.

The Indians fans, team or think tank would have hardly envisaged this scenario where the team already finds itself in trouble after just one loss. The ideal belief was in-form Indian team would get a flying start and they would continue their winning  momentum till the knock out. Whatever it may be, but this twist has added an extra flavour to the course of T20 World Cup 2016. New Zealand have went on to register their second win. Good part is their two wins came against strong teams like India and Australia.

While Pakistan always finds it difficult to beat India in an ICC event, this time they would be a bit relaxed with a win under their belt. Of course they would love to win today and march ahead with more strength towards the knock outs. But a win in the last match adds to the confidence of the team.

India as a team has been in a great form in the T20 format. Beating Australia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan in the recently concluded matches had termed them as one of the top three favourites for the ICC T20 World Cup 2016. MS Dhoni and his men have to overcome the loss they faced at the tricky Nagpur track. Anyhow Dhoni and company is well known to bounce back hard. If the likes of Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, R Ashwin, R Jadeja, Bumrah, Pandya click, they can register a win over the arch-rivals.

Many more exciting matches to come after this. We expect a lot of shuffle in the points tally after this.

While the warm ups and the qualifier matches are going on, we are just two days away from the Super 10 round to kick off. India take on New Zealand in the opening match. A tough one for both the teams. India is riding high on confidence with a great form but they have always found it difficult to beat New Zealand in the T20 cricket. On the other hand, New Zealand are visitors this time and India play the hosts. So not an easy one for New Zealand also.

16 September 2007 at Johannesburg - New Zealand won by 10 runs
25 February 2009 at Christchurch - New Zealand won by 7 wickets
27 February 2009 at Wellington - New Zealand won by 5 wickets
8 September 2012 at Vizag - No result due to rain
11 September 2012 at Chennai - New Zealand won by 1 run

Will India win their first T20 match against New Zealand at Nagpur? Cricket fans here in India strongly hope that India will open their T20 World Cup 2016 account with a win. Against a team that they have never defeated in the T20 cricket format.India has an equally strong batting line up and fans might expect a big one in the series opener from Rohit Sharma.
Rohit Sharma is well known to hit big scores in the opening matches. Will he be able to score big against New Zealand?
These two teams belong to the tougher group where the other teams are Australia, Pakistan and team that would qualify from Group A. Most probably the team could be Bangladesh or Oman. 

Indian team has won most of the last few matches they have played since the Australian tour. The recent loss came against South Africa in the warm up game. South Africa scored 196 and India almost chased it down. The hosts scored 193 and lost by just three runs. That shows how strong the Indian team has been in last three months.
