EPL: Fred gives Rangnick winning start at Manchester United | Football News – Times of India

MANCHESTER (England): Brazilian midfielder Fred curled in a 77th-minute winner as Ralf Rangnick made a winning start as Manchester United's interim manager with a 1-0 Premier League win over Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Sunday. United had struggled to create clear chances against Patrick Vieira's well-drilled side but the oft-criticised Fred beat Vincente Guaita with a wonderful strike from the edge of the box after being set up by substitute Mason Greenwood. Palace should have gone ahead minutes earlier but Jordan Ayew missed from point-blank range at the back post after James Tomkins had headed down a corner. United moved up to sixth place in the table on 24 points, three behind fourth-placed West Ham United. Palace slipped to 12th on 16 points. German Rangnick was leading United...

West Indies will play three T20s and three 50-over matches in Pakistan starting on December 13 in what will be the first visit by an international side since England and New Zealand pulled out of scheduled tours this year for security reasons. "Pollard will undergo rehabilitation work in Trinidad ... and will be reassessed in a few weeks ahead of the upcoming home tours against Ireland and England in January 2022," Cricket West Indies said in a statement on Sunday.

PV Sindhu needs to work on her leg movement: Former Indian shuttler Malvinder Dhillon | Badminton News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Former Indian badminton player and coach Malvinder Dhillon said that PV Sindhu needs to work on her leg movements to compete against South Korean shuttler An Se Young in future tournaments. Sindhu came up short in the finals of the BWF World Tour Finals as she got defeated by An Se Young 21-16, 21-12 in the final match on Sunday that lasted for just 39 minutes. Speaking to ANI, Malvinder Dhillon said, "I have seen yesterday's match and this Korean girl is really a great player. Earlier also she won two tournaments in Indonesia and she is definitely a rising star. Sindhu played her heart out but I think she needs to work hard on her fitness to play against An Se Young and prepare accordingly. In this game, every day is a new day and you have to work accordingly. And I think Si...

New Zealand convinced Ajaz would take all 20 wickets vs India: Ravindra | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: New Zealand's Mumbai-born Ajaz Patel added two more wickets to his record 10 Sunday morning, raising teammates' hopes of him getting all 20 Indian wickets in the second Test, fellow spinner Rachin Ravindra revealed. Ajaz, a left-arm spinner, returned best-ever figures of 14-225 against India, surpassing Ian Botham's 13-106 in 1980 at Mumbai. He had already joined an elite club of three bowlers including England's Jim Laker (1956) and India's Anil Kumble (1999) to take 10 wickets in one Test innings. Laker finished with 19 in the match against Australia. Ajaz improved his match tally to 12 in the first session before Ravindra, another Kiwi of Indian origin, broke through to get his maiden Test wicket on day three at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium. "It was a pretty funny moment because...

SA Team Selection: Virat’s ODI captaincy, Ishant’s place in Test, back-up No. 3 up for discussion | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Virat Kohli's position as India's ODI captain, his Test deputy Ajinkya Rahane's future as vice-captain in the longest format along with 100-Test man Ishant Sharma's place will be up for discussion when the national selectors pick the jumbo squad for the tour of South Africa later this week. Chairman of selectors Chetan Sharma, Abey Kuruvilla and Sunil Joshi are here watching the Mumbai Test and sometime during this week, they will sit alongside president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah to take a few decisions which might have a far-reaching impact in the larger context of Indian cricket. India are supposed to play three ODIs in South Africa and the biggest question now is whether the country needs two white ball captains which can potentially lead to clash of ideas. Rohit ...

Tough to bounce back after being bowled out for 60-odd: Rachin Ravindra | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: New Zealand are well aware that it is extremely tough to bounce back after collapsing to 62 in the first innings but young all-rounder Rachin Ravindra promised his team would put up a fight on Day 4 of the second Test against India. The Indian-origin Ravindra once again showed resistance (2 batting off 23 balls) with Henry Nicholls (36 batting off 86 balls) to see off the day with 140/5, even as India stood on the cusp of a series-winning second Test. "It's always tough being bowled out for 60, a lot of things went wrong," said the 22-year-old after the end of third day's play. "We all strive to be better. We tried to put that sort of stuff behind. It was not our best performance but we knew we have got a second innings and we'll keep fighting from there." "It's important for th...

daryl mitchell: Daryl Mitchell says he took cue from Mayank Agarwal to counter Indian spinners | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: New Zealand batter Daryl Mitchell on Sunday said he took cue from India opener Mayank Agarwal to counter the home side's spinners on Day 3 of the second Test. Mitchell (60 off 92 balls) shared 73 runs for the fourth wicket with Henry Nicholls (36 batting) to provide much needed resistance in New Zealand's improbable chase of 540. "Set the template from Mayank's batting, the way he put pressure on our spinners," Mitchell said after the day's play. "Disappointing to not still be out there and kick on, but nice to get a partnership going." Mitchell admitted that his team is obviously in a tough situation in the Test. "They (Indian bowlers) are constantly throwing things at you and you're trying to counter that. You have to keep trying to win the small battles. "Tough situation we'r...

As Ross Taylor heads to exit, understanding his final slog sweep in India

Jeremy Coney, former New Zealand captain, hesitated on air during his commentary stint on SENZ radio. Slowly, he began to voice out his bafflement at Ross Taylor’s eight-ball-eight-lives catty knock. “Ross Taylor will be embarrassed for sure … It looks bad. Everyone will say what he was thinking. And they are right. I don’t know what to say about that innings,” Coney would say. He swung. He slogged. He heaved. He moved around. He dashed out. And he combusted with the signature slog sweep. If ever a GIF is made of his career, the most popular choice would be that slog sweep. Shoaib Akhtar. Lasith Malinga. Flip book of bowlers shredded. And it was that finally ended his misery on potentially his last Test in India. It also raises questions about his career. On the radio, Cone...
