The decade was brimming with records, but also some despicable moments in the cricketing scene. The decade 2010-2019 saw 3 World Cups, 4 World t20s, 2 Champions Trophy, and the first even Test Championship also required off this decade.
It is never easy to pipe down the top moments in cricket of a year, not to mention a decade, with such countless records being made and broken, such countless teams playing an immense number of games each year, notwithstanding, we have trimmed down the rundown to Top 10 Moments in Cricket Of The Decade. These are probably the most unforgettable moments that have been seen in all of the cricketing worlds.
1. First ODI Double Century
24th February 2010: Gwalior and the world saw history really taking shape. Sachin Tendulkar turned into the principal Indian and the first since forever batsman to score a double hundred in ODI (One Day International). Sachin Tendulkar scored 200* in the last over of the innings against South Africa in a bilateral arrangement. He wasn’t the principal cricketer to score a double hundred; however, as an honorary notice, Belinda Clark of Australia was the primary cricketer and the first batswoman to score a double century in 1997.
In any case, a double century in men’s cricket was extraordinary. Several players came near scoring double century anyway. No one actually managed to break the deadlock and pass through. Since that day, 7 all the more double century has been scored, and 3 came from Rohit Sharma’s bat.
2. Dhoni Finishes Off In Style
2 April 2011: Winning the World Cup isn’t an easy feat. And India won its second World Cup on second April 2011 and thusly became the principal team that won a World Cup while facilitating the tournament. The “Player of the Tournament,” Yuvraj Singh, gave his all in the tournament even as he was battling Cancer.
Tendulkar managed to have almost all the major record added to his repertoire, what he was denied off was a World Cup title, and no other player merited the accolade more than him. Tendulkar and team India won the 2011 World Cup when MS Dhoni hit a six in style to polish off the chase at the Wankhede stadium. From the normal public to VIPs to Bollywood big names, the entire nation came out to celebrate India’s colossal achievement.
3. England’s Win In India
November/December of 2012: Arguably the best Test arrangement win in an away arrangement in this decade. England finally defeated India in a Test arrangement after near 30 years. This is the lone second arrangement defeat that India took. The subsequent one came in 2019 when India lost against Australia. Anyway, this actually remains the lone Test arrangement India lost in India in 2019, whereas other teams have lost 2 arrangements in their home.
What also makes this test arrangement merit its place on the rundown is how England won the arrangement. England was down 0-1 after the primary test match in Ahmedabad, but at Wankhede, Kevin Pietersen thumped 186, and Swann and Panesar took 19 of the 20 wickets. England won the third test in Kolkata and then managed a draw in the fourth test in Nagpur, claiming their Test arrangement triumph in India against India since 1984-85.
4. Divine force of Cricket Retires
16 November 2013: This is the day that made the entire cricketing world sob in tears. This was the last day of Sachin Tendulkar’s vast and tremendous career. He played in Mumbai and scored reputable 74 sudden spikes in demand for the scorecard.
His farewell discourse not just acquired him and his family tears but to everybody’s eyes who was posting and watching him on his last day, knowing, now there will be not, at this point an expectation in Indian fans that do not stress, Tendulkar is as yet on the crease, or he is on the way out and bat. At the time resigned, he kept and still holds the record of a general number of Test, ODIs, Hundreds, Half-hundreds of years, Runs, and many more records.
5. A Player Lost
25th – 27th November 2014: The entire cricket universe came together during these three days. On the 25th of November 2014, Australian cricketer Phillip Hughes was hit by a bouncer as he was playing a domestic game, and following this, was airlifted to a hospital. Fans of cricket, but other games as very much prayed for his fast recuperation, be that as it may, Hughes surrendered to his physical issue on the 27th of the same month.
This information on his passing away has impacted such a lot that a Test match that was being played between Pakistan and New Zealand in Sharjah was suspended for a day. People paid their tribute, and #PutOutYourBats started moving on social media sites.
6. The First Day-Night Test
27th November 2015: On the first death anniversary of Phillip Hughes, the primary Day-Night Test match was played at the Adelaide Oval between New Zealand and Australia. Australians are known for dominating the cricketing scene as well as concocting new changes and ideas to Cricket.
They started the idea of Day-Night games, but they also came up with shading packs. Hotspot, DRS, and Snickometer were brought into the game by Australians. And in 2015, Australia brought the Pink ball test so more people can come to appreciate the Test Matches. In 2019, India played their first historically speaking Day-Night Pink ball Test match in Kolkata.
7. The Records of Team in Maroon
3 April 2016: India facilitated the T20I World Cup in 2016, and very much like West Indies became the principal team to win ODI World Cup twice (1975 and 79), in 2016 it also became the main team to win 2 T20I World Cups. Braithwaite hit 4 sixes in a steady progression last over to secure success against England at Eden Gardens. It’s anything but a great year for the Caribbean side as it’s anything but won the Men T20 World Cup and the Women. In addition, West Indies also won the U-19 World Cup.
8. Pakistan’s Champions Trophy
18 June 2017: Pakistan was the last team to qualify for the Champions Trophy in 2017, and the same team managed to reach the finals at Lord’s Cricket Ground, London. An India-Pakistan match is the most anticipated game in the cricketing scene. To such an extent, England versus Australia pales in comparison, and when they clash against each other in the Finals, there’s nothing similar to it.
On a fine day, aside from the throw, nothing went in India’s favor. Fakhar Zaman, who scored 114 in the match, was scratched by Bumrah early in the game, be that as it may, the ball was named a no-ball. India had to chase an enormous score of 339 to win the Trophy, be that as it may, Pakistan’s bowling orders shattered the expectations as in Mohammad Amir picked the top request in only 4 overs, Rohit, Virat, and Shikhar, all were sent back to the changing area with only 33 sudden spikes in demand for the scoreboard. Pakistan won the tournament regardless of having made the tournament last.
9. The Sandpaper Ball Tampering
24th March 2018: This date is marked as the most disgraceful in the new time in the cricketing world. The game’s reputation has already been hampered with all the Match-Fixing allegations. Still, then on the third day of the third test match, post-lunch, Steve Smith, Cameron Bancroft, and David Warner were discovered tampering with the ball with Sandpaper (which is utilized to maintain the bat) in Cape Town.
Steve Smith (Captain) also acknowledged that he knew in advance that there were plans to utilize the sandpaper to condition the ball. Indeed, even the bad habit captain, David Warner, accepted the discipline given by ICC. Later, the Australian Cricket Board banned of 1 year on all three players from International Cricket matches.
10. The Inventors win the World Cup
14 July 2019: Probably the greatest match in the historical backdrop of ODIs and cricket overall. In the World Cup Final, the match had tied, and the champs were to be chosen by Super Over, which also wound up in a tie. England dominated the game by the boundary rule, as they smashed a bigger number of boundaries than New Zealand.
England finally won their first World Cup. Even though they are the inventors of the game, they had always lost the World Cup since its origin, and what a way to win the World Cup. Also, England is now the second on the planet to have won the World Cup while facilitating the Tournament. The first was India back in 2011. England lost their last 3 World Cups, and in 2015’s version, they left the tournament in the early stages.
