Jasiwal smashed 50 off 21 balls which included some delectable sixes off star Australian pacer Josh Hazlewood while Dube sent the likes of Moeen Ali and Ravindra Jadeja into orbit en route his unbeaten 64 off 42 balls as Royals made a short work of a victory target of 190 in just 17.3 overs.

Diego Llorente goal seals first win for Leeds | Football News – Times of India

LEEDS: Leeds United finally got to celebrate their first Premier League win of the season as Diego Llorente's first-half goal earned them a 1-0 win over Watford at Elland Road on Saturday. Spanish defender Llorente was quickest to react to a loose ball in the box following a Leeds corner in the 18th minute and hooked it past Ben Foster from close range. Watford lacked intensity and failed to test their hosts, although they thought they had an unlikely equaliser when Leeds keeper Illan Meslier fumbled a corner and the ball ended up in the net. But the goal was disallowed for a foul. Foster was lucky to get away with an error late on when Tyler Roberts had an effort cleared off the line. Leeds should have won by a wider margin as Mateusz Klich went close and Stuart Dallas fired a good cha...

Chelsea seize top spot after dramatic win over Southampton | Football News – Times of India

LONDON: Timo Werner fired Chelsea to the top of the Premier League as the German's late goal inspired a controversy-filled 3-1 win against 10-man Southampton on Saturday. Thomas Tuchel's side ended a frustrating week on a high note thanks to Werner's contribution to a dramatic finale at Stamford Bridge. After successive 1-0 defeats against Manchester City and Juventus, the Blues were in danger of another disappointing result with just minutes remaining in rain-soaked west London. Trevoh Chalobah's early opener for Chelsea had been cancelled out by a James Ward-Prowse penalty in the second half. But Ward-Prowse was sent off for an ugly lunge on Jorginho and Chelsea took full advantage as Werner restored their lead with six minutes left before Ben Chilwell wrapped up the points. Chelsea s...

IPL 2021: We are still in competition, says MI bowling coach Shane Bond | Cricket News – Times of India

SHARJAH: Defending champions Mumbai Indians are currently in the bottom half of the IPL points table after seven losses from 12 matches but their bowling coach Shane Bond on Saturday said they are "still in the competition". The five-time champions could only manage a modest 129/8 which Delhi Capitals chased down for a four-wicket win. "We are playing okay, we know that we are playing nowhere near our best, but we are still in the competition," Bond said. "We'll see what happens. We only had fine wins, but if we can get two wins under our belt and a few results go our way," he said. They next face Rajasthan Royals at the same venue in three days. "I don't think the plan will change too much. We've got a couple of areas we need to tidy up. We know we're still in the competition, even tho...

Pink Ball Test: Need to come out with more intent, says Pooja Vastrakar | Cricket News – Times of India

GOLD COAST (Australia): India medium-pacer Pooja Vastrakar on Saturday said it was important to come in with more intent on the final day of the pink-ball Test against Australia here and enforce the follow-on. Pooja, who picked up two wickets including the big one of Meg Lanning (for 38) and Jhulan Goswami (2/27) restricted Australia to 143 for 4 at stumps in response to India's first innings total of 377 for 8 declared. The hosts are still behind by 234 on the first innings and need 85 more runs to avoid the follow-on. "If we have to win the match, we have to come with more intent tomorrow and try and break the partnerships and enforce the follow on," she said at a virtual media interaction at the end of the third day's play. That's Stumps on Day 3 of the #AUSvIND Pink-Ball Test in Car...

IPL 2021: It will be difficult to win games if batsmen don’t perform, says Rohit Sharma | Cricket News – Times of India

SHARJAH: Dejection writ large on his face, Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma on Saturday said they are not playing to their potential as the defeat against Delhi capitals made their road to IPL play-offs tougher. The defending champions lost by four wickets against DC to stay in sixth place and they now need not only win their remaining two games but also hope for favourable results from other matches. Rohit counted himself among the batting failures this season as MI yet again settled for a below-par score of 129 for 7 and could not defend it. "If your batters aren't going to post runs on the board, it will be difficult to win games. I personally accept that. We're not able to execute in the middle, which is particularly disappointing," Rohit said at the post-match presentation cerem...

IPL 2021: Shivam Dube, Yashasvi Jaiswal steal the thunder in Royal riposte

What happened there? Whistle podu, Rajasthan style. When Chennai Super Kings slammed 189, it seemed Ruturaj Gaikwad’s beautifully-violent hundred would be the talk of the town, but Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shivam Dube brutally shoved CSK aside to reach the target with 2.3 overs to spare. Perhaps, it was the longer boundaries of Abu Dhabi that made the Chennai bowlers think they could bounce out the openers Jaiswal and Evin Lewis. Mistake. The white ball kept flying into the desert night as the fifty came in the fourth over and by the end of five, they were whistling along at 75. It wasn’t the short ball that was a problem but instead the heights. The two batsmen didn’t have to hook anything, comfortable pulls did the job as the deliveries repeatedly sat up below chest high. The fifth over o...

Pink Ball Test: India women leave Australia at 143/4 at stumps on Day 3 | Cricket News – Times of India

GOLD COAST (AUSTRALIA): India dictated terms to mighty Australia who did everything they could to survive the difficult overs under lights and finish the third day of the rain-marred pink ball Test at 143 for four on Saturday. At stumps, Australia trailed the visitors by 234 runs after veteran seamer Jhulan Goswami (2/27) bowled beautifully and struck twice to leave them at 63 for two at one stage. India declared their first innings at 377 for eight. Mithali Raj's side was lucky as the umpire gave Australian captain Meg Lanning (38) out wrongly, raising his finger despite an inside edge and bringing to an end her ominous stay in the middle. On that occasion, the lucky bowler was Pooja Vastrakar (2/31). There was a fair bit of dew though and that obviously did not help the India bowlers,...

Ronald Koeman will continue as head coach of Barcelona: Joan Laporta

In an unexpected move, Barcelona’s club president quashed reports of the imminent firing of Ronald Koeman on Saturday when he said that the Dutch coach will keep his job. “Koeman will continue being the coach of Barcelona,” Joan Laporta said hours before Barcelona’s match at Atlético Madrid that many reports in the Spanish media speculated could be Koeman’s last. “Today, regardless of the result, Koeman will still be Barcelona’s coach,” Laporta told reporters in Madrid. “He has a contract, (and) we hope that he can get us back on the winning path, playing the way we want. I know he will give it his all.” It was the first public statement Laporta has made since a bitter 3-0 loss at Benfica on Wednesday sparked various reports that Koeman’s days were numbered. Barcelona has lost both its ...

World Wrestling C’ships: Daton Fix flattens Ravinder Dahiya in quarter-final

Daton Duain Fix of the USA flattened Ravinder Dahiya of India by 10-0 in the men’s freestyle 61-kg category quarterfinals of the World Wrestling Championships which began at Nye Jordal Amfi, Oslo in Norway on Saturday. The Indian, a silver medallist at the Budapest 2019 World U-23 Championship, will have to wait for a repechage chance.

Mohammedan SC fans queue for Durand Cup final tickets, revival hopes for club

The demand for tickets has reached such frenzied levels that Dipendu Biswas has to put his phone on silent mode and shove it to one corner of his office. But if the Mohammedan Sporting football secretary thought that would give him some respite, he’s mistaken. Thousands gathered outside the club’s tent in Kolkata on a rainy Friday afternoon to snap up tickets for Sunday’s Durand Cup final against FC Goa. “We gave two tickets each to a couple of thousand people who came on Thursday,” Biswas says. “Today (Friday), more than 3,000 people are already waiting outside and we haven’t even started distributing tickets.” The former India forward isn’t complaining; if anything, he sounds relaxed and joyful. For once, the celebratory chaos is at Sporting’s tent and not at their traditional rivals’...

GOLD COAST: India declared their first innings at 377 for eight on the third day of the rain-marred women's day/night Test against Australia here on Saturday. The visitors declared their innings shortly after Deepti Sharma's dismissal for 167-ball 66-run knock at the Carrara Oval. Sharma struck eight boundaries to notch her best Test score, a day after opener Smriti Mandhana grabbed the headline with a magnificent maiden century in the format. All-rounder Sharma got out shortly after the dinner break.

Eoin Morgan’s batting woes in IPL continue as T20 World Cup approaches | Cricket News – Times of India

England Twenty20 captain Eoin Morgan's poor batting performance in the Indian Premier League (IPL) continued as he scored only two runs in Kolkata Knight Riders' defeat by Punjab Kings, raising concerns over his form ahead of the World Cup. Morgan, who also leads Kolkata, has scored a total of 17 runs in four innings since the IPL resumed in the United Arab Emirates last month. The 35-year-old has an average of 10.90 runs in the T20 tournament and Kolkata coach Brendon McCullum said the team expects more from the batter. "I think he's captained the side really well. But look, you want some more runs from him there's no doubt in there," McCullum told reporters after Friday's five-wicket loss. "He's one of our senior players. He's one of our international batters and in his own head, he w...
