Sania Mirza: I wanted to do it on my terms, says Sania Mirza | Tennis News – Times of India

NEW YORK: Sania Mirza was in the middle of a few things. Her sore left-knee was being tended to, she was mulling her negative Covid-19 test result, wondering if she could put a number to it. Second test in three days, that’ll do for now, she said, laughing. The 34-year-old, who drove seven-hours to New York City, from Cleveland, Ohio with three-year-old son Izhaan, following the final, arriving on the wee-hours of Sunday, was severely short of sleep, but was spitting choices. “I chose to play tennis again,” she underlined, “I was content with my career, happy with what I had achieved, but having chosen to return to the Tour after having a baby, I wanted to do it on my terms. Playing now, with a baby in tow, is scheduling a nightmare. There are mothers who are not travelling with their k...

India vs England: We are prepared against world class Ashwin, says Root | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: Skipper Joe Root, who led England to a series-levelling win at the Headingley, expects an Indian backlash in the penultimate Test and said they're ready for all combinations including facing the "world class" R Ashwin at Oval. India had grabbed a 1-0 lead in the five-match series after beating England by 151 runs at Lord's but England came back to level the series with an innings and 76 run win in the third Test. "A world class team like India, led by Virat (Kohli) I expect nothing less than a response and we'd be naive to think otherwise," Root said during a virtual press-conference. "That's why I think it's really important that we don't get too comfortable, we don't think that we've achieved anything at this point, we've just got ourselves back to level playing."

Arman Jaffer, bowlers star in Mumbai’s 231-run win over Oman in second one-dayer | Cricket News – Times of India

MUSCAT: Young Arman Jaffer's stroke-filed 122 and an impressive show by the bowlers helped Mumbai rout Oman by 231 runs in the second one-dayer on Monday. Put into bat, Mumbai rode on Jaffer's 122 off 114 balls and an equally impressive unbeaten 73 off 70 balls by Sujit Nayak to post an imposing 300/8. They then bundled out the opposition for 69 to register a one-sided win and go up 2-0 in the series. Mumbai openers Yashasvi Jaiswal (27) and Aakarshit Gomel (5) fell cheaply, but Jaffer took charge and anchored the innings. The 22-year-old right-handed batsman pummelled the Oman attack into submission, striking 11 fours and three sixes. He found an able ally in Chinmay Sutar (37 off 47 balls), with whom he added 63 runs for the third wicket. Oman then pegged the visitors back by picking ...

We are preparing ourselves for an Indian fightback: Collingwood | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: England assistant coach Paul Collingwood feels India's batsmen are coping too much criticism for their failure in the third Test at Leeds and his team is bracing up for a strong fightback from the visitors in the fourth game starting here on Thursday. India lost the match by an innings and 76 runs last week, leaving the five-match series level at 1-1. "I thought we bowled tremendously well. It is easy to criticise the Indian batsmen when you are an Indian supporter but there was a lot of movement on the pitch on the first day," Colingwood said at a virtual media interaction with select Indian journalists. "...it was kind of conditions with a bit of moisture in the pitch and it was tricky for the batsman, the way we bowled against them. Virat (Kohli) said in his post-match confer...

Joe Root: Have to keep Virat quiet if we want to win this series, says Root | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: England skipper Joe Root on Tuesday said his side would be required to keep India skipper Virat Kohli quiet in the next two Tests if they want to win the five-match series. The five-match series stands level at 1-1, and now the fourth Test would be played at the Oval, London, beginning this Thursday. Kohli has so far gotten just one fifty-plus score in the ongoing series and James Anderson has managed to dismiss him twice. "The credit needs to go to our bowling attack, Virat is a world-class player hence the credit needs to be given to the bowling group. We have been able to keep him quiet, it is an extremely good effort from our bowling group and it is something we have to continue if we have to win this series. We have found ways to get him out, he is a fine player and has don...

For Rohit, less is more

It’s been said in these pages before but is worth reiterating: Rohit Sharma is the best classical opener in world cricket now. It’s the absences that are noticeable against the new ball. That fidgety front foot that would trample across and upset the stillness of his head is gone. With it, the propensity to play even straight deliveries around his front pad disappeared. With it, the LBW threat and unbalanced positions went poof. The technique is almost minimalistic, almost monastic, almost Jacques Kallis-ish. With the natural cadence that elevates him aesthetically beyond Kallis, who was akin to Hollywood’s typical unemotional Russian. It screams out in Sharma’s remarkably non-fussy defence. Rarely has a ball been anaesthetised so gracefully. The bat is held just above the waist, wrist ...
