Curran did well to take responsibility, we are proud of him: Buttler | Cricket News – Times of India

PUNE: After suffering a seven-run loss in the third and final ODI against India at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, England's stand-in ODI skipper Jos Buttler on Sunday said that all-rounder Sam Curran played an incredible knock, but the credit goes to hosts for winning the series.

Fading confidence in Team India’s lead white-ball spinners | Cricket News – Times of India

India's XI for the deciding ODI on Sunday is, in essence, a commentary on the receding trust in the pool of frontline spinners in white-ball cricket. India went in with four regular seamers in Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Prasidh Krishna and Shardul Thakur. Hardik Pandya declared in the innings break that he would be bowling to complement his off-colour spinner brother Krunal Pandya who was the lone spinner in the XI. Not long ago, India flaunted a lethal spin attack in 50-over cricket. Wrist-spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav were in the forefront of a revolution of sorts and Ravindra Jadeja added scary depth to the lineup. Irrespective of the conditions and pitches they played on, the Indian team management was prepared to barter extra runs for a few wickets. Now we have b...

India vs England, 3rd ODI: India beat England by 7 runs in a thriller, clinch series 2-1 | Cricket News – Times of India

The moment Shikhar Dhawan skipped down the track to Sam Curran in the third over of the deciding ODI against England in Pune, one could make out that the Indian team has decided to shake things up in the way it plays its 50-over cricket. But then it was Curran, coming in to bat at No. 8, who nearly nullified India's game plan with an unbeaten 95 off 83 in the chase of 330.
