Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians Highlights: Ruturaj’s 88 and bowlers power CSK to 20-run win over MI | Cricket News – Times of India

DUBAI: The gifted Ruturaj Gaikwad laid the foundation with an unbeaten 58-ball 88 before Dwayne Bravo led an excellent bowling display to power Chennai Super Kings to a crushing 20-run win over Mumbai Indians in the IPL on Sunday. Gaikwad batted through the innings to lift Chennai Super Kings from a precarious 7/3 to 156 for six as the IPL 14 resumed in the UAE after the first phase in India was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic in May. Scorecard | As it happened | Points TableThe late spark was provided by Bravo (23 off 8 balls) as CSK recovered from a disastrous start to put up a fighting total. Chasing 157 on a pitch where the ball often stopped on the batsmen, MI too were off to a poor start as they slipped to 37 for three in the sixth over at the Dubai International Cricket St...

Virat Kohli to step down as Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper after IPL 2021 | Cricket News – Times of India

DUBAI: Virat Kohli will step down as captain of his IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore at the end of the ongoing season, the Indian batting maestro announced on Sunday, two days after deciding to quit national T20 captaincy following next month's World Cup. The 32-year-old will quit the India T20 captaincy to manage the immense workload that he has been enduring as an all-format skipper and his decision to leave the leadership role in franchise cricket is part of those efforts. "This will be my last IPL as captain of RCB. I'll continue to be an RCB player till I play my last IPL game. I thank all the RCB fans for believing in me and supporting me," Kohli said in a video statement issued by RCB.

For India slot, gymnast Shraddha Talekar thanks her uncle and his homemade mat

Shraddha Talekar remembers long vacations in the “city” at her maternal uncle’s home in Thane. It was during one such trip that the uncle, Vishwas Gophan, packed her off to a gymnastics summer camp. Eighteen years on, the 27-year-old from rain-soaked Pedali village in Maharashtra’s coastal Raigad district, has made it to the India team for next month’s Artistic Gymnastics World Championship in Japan. And, for her first chance to compete amongst the best, she thanks her supportive “Mama” (uncle) — and the special equipment he put together to pull her through the pandemic in remote Pedali. During the lockdown, Talekar wondered if it was curtains on her career, after narrowly missing out on India selection six times by scores as low as 0.5 points in trials since 2013.

new zealand: Pakistan rule out New Zealand World Cup boycott despite abandoned tour | Cricket News – Times of India

KARACHI: Pakistan will not boycott next month's Twenty20 World Cup match against New Zealand after the Black Caps abruptly abandoned their tour over security fears, the country's cricket board said Sunday. The cancellation is a massive setback for Pakistan, which has been trying to revive tours by foreign sides after home internationals were suspended in the aftermath of a 2009 terror attack on the Sri Lankan team. New Zealand have refused to give details of the security threat that forced them to cancel their tour on Friday just as the first one-day international was due to begin in Rawalpindi. The decision infuriated the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and sparked calls for a boycott of the New Zealand team. But PCB chief executive Wasim Khan said no such action is on the cards. "Right n...

rohit: IPL 2021, CSK vs MI: Rohit Sharma rested due to knee niggle | Cricket News – Times of India

DUBAI: India vice-captain Rohit Sharma opted out of Mumbai Indians' opening match of the second phase of Indian Premier League, which resumed on Sunday, due to a knee niggle he had sustained during the recent England tour. Rohit had struck a century in the second innings of the fourth Test at the Oval but did not take the field when England batted. "The message from the physio is 'assess every minute, don't look too far ahead'," Rohit had said after the Oval Test. Kieron Pollard led the defending champions against Chennai Super Kings in the absence of Rohit. MI head coach Mahela Jayawardene said Rohit was kept out of the game as a precautionary measure. "Rohit had something going in the last Test (Oval), so we thought a couple of days of extra precaution," he said. Mumbai Indians next p...

ganna: Italian cyclist Filippo Ganna retains world time-trial crown | More sports News – Times of India

BRUGES (Belgium): Filippo Ganna broke Belgian hearts at the road cycling world championships in Flanders as he retained his individual time trial title by beating local favourite Wout van Aert on Sunday. The Italian lagged behind Van Aert at both intermediate checks but he managed his effort better on the pancake-flat 43km course to clock 47 minutes 47 seconds. Van Aert finished 5.37 seconds behind with another Belgian, Remco Evenepoel, picking up the bronze medal 43.34 seconds off the pace. "In a week, my condition improved very well after a short camp in altitude," Ganna said. "Today when I woke up I had a good feeling in the legs and the head did the rest." Evenepoel clocked the first time of reference but Van Aert, who snatched silver in both the time trial and the road race at last...

Lingard, De Gea earn dramatic late win for Manchester United | Football News – Times of India

LONDON: Jesse Lingard scored a stunning late goal and David de Gea saved a stoppage-time penalty as Manchester United beat West Ham United 2-1 in a dramatic Premier League match on Sunday.

Eoin Morgan: KKR is now dangerous side with nothing to lose, says Morgan | Cricket News – Times of India

ABU DHABI: Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Eoin Morgan on Sunday said they will be "dangerous" opponents in the second leg of the IPL since they have nothing to lose. The two-time champions endured an underwhelming first half, losing five of their seven matches and are languishing at the seventh spot. The skipper feels the team now controls its own fortunes going ahead. "We need to just look at it in one way -- we absolutely control everything from here, there is no looking behind," Morgan said during a virtual press conference ahead of their match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. "We need to find a way of getting results and everyone in the team, fans know that that can make for very exciting watching because it makes us a very dangerous side with nothing to lose."

IPL 2021: CSK off to a flying restart after beating MI by 20 runs

For the first 10 overs, the game followed a predictable script before it changed and shifted towards Chennai Super Kings’ direction. Ruturaj Gaikwad was central to the change, through his classy batting. Then, Deepak Chahar lived up to his Powerplay reputation, taking a couple of crucial wickets, mixing brain with brawn. Without Rohit Sharma at the top and Hardik Pandya at the death, Mumbai Indians missed the winning mojo. 156/6 posted by CSK wasn’t a winning total. But the degree of difficulty is higher for the batsmen in Dubai, with a bigger outfield and help for the seamers, compared to the venues in India. And once MS Dhoni gets a fighting total, he is a master of defending it. CSK won by 20 runs, restricting MI to 136/8 in 20 overs. .@ChennaiIPL WIN by 20 runs and have added 2 mor...

ABU DHABI (UAE): Former England captain Michael Vaughan on Sunday stated that it would be 'sensible' to move matches against Pakistan to UAE rather than cancelling the tour. Vaughan's statement came after the Blackcaps abandoned their tour of Pakistan following a New Zealand government security alert on Friday. New Zealand was slated to play their first match on Pakistan soil since 2003. The side was to play hosts on Friday in the first of three ODIs in Rawalpindi, before moving to Lahore for a five-match T20 series. "It would seem sensible to me to try and move England's Pakistan games to the UAE rather than cancel the tour if it's deemed unsafe to travel .. !! Hopefully the games for the Men's & Women teams can take place rather than a full cancellation," tweeted Michael Vaughan. ...
