Bangladesh release Shakib Al Hasan from New Zealand-bound squad | Cricket News – Times of India

DHAKA: Bangladesh on Wednesday released all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan from the squad for a series in New Zealand and replaced him with uncapped all-rounder Fazle Rabbi. Shakib was initially included in the squad for the two-Test series, starting on January 1. But the all-rounder sought leave citing family reasons, prompting the Bangladesh Cricket Board to make the change. The 35-year all-rounder was one of the rare shining lights in the team's innings and eight-run defeat against Pakistan in the second Test that ended in Dhaka on Wednesday. He top-scored for the side in both innings with 33 and 63 runs respectively, and in the process completed the double of 4,000 Test runs and 200 wickets in 59 Tests, the quickest in history and beating a record long held by Ian Botham. It was only the t...

Joe Root made wrong call by batting first, says Nasser Hussain | Cricket News – Times of India

England captain Joe Root made the wrong decision by opting to bat first against Australia on a green pitch in the opening Ashes Test at the Gabba after the tourists were dismissed for 147 on Wednesday, former skipper Nasser Hussain said. Pat Cummins made a dream start to his Australia captaincy with a five-wicket haul as England were skittled by tea before rain brought the opening day of the test to an early close. Hussain said it was a harder toss for Root than his own "diabolical decision" in 2002 when he put Steve Waugh's Australia into bat and the home side reached 364-2 on day one before comfortably winning the match. "It was a green pitch here and it had been raining but while everyone focuses on what the pitch is doing on the first morning, as a captain you have to think what the...

Hyderabad FC pile further misery on Bengaluru with 1-0 win

Hyderabad FC rode on Bartholomew Ogbeche’s first-half strike to down Bengaluru FC 1-0 in the Indian Super League on Wednesday. Ogbeche found the back of the net in the 7th minute as his side dominated proceedings from the off to leave Bengaluru at ninth position with four points from five matches. Hyderabad jumped to third place courtesy the victory with seven points from four games. The hosts started on the front foot and went ahead as soon as the seventh minute. Akash Mishra found Ogbeche after darting past a few white and blue shirts. The Nigerian then fired home from the edge of the box as the ball took a slight deflection to nestle in the back of the net, past a diving Gurpreet Singh Sandhu. Mishra looked in fine form as he teed up Ogbeche once again in the 17th minute but Gurpreet...

Like Sachin Tendulkar, relieving of captaincy could unburden Virat Kohli the batsman

Captaincy never seemed to shrink Virat Kohli, rather he had grown with it. Through largely good times, and the intermittent bad, leading a team never seemed to burden him. Shades of silver did intrude into his once jet-black tidily-trimmed beard. But captaincy, if his on-field passion was a reflection, if the chosen words in press conferences were to hold a mirror, dwelled comfortably on him. For him it seemed an instinct than duty, predestined the moment he broke into the first-class cricket—and he could show a proud record to the team of doubters, even if ICC silverwares eluded him, the caveat that arguably ended in Rohit Sharma displacing him as the white-ball captain. Virat Kohli is no longer the ODI and T20 captain of the Indian cricket team. (File) But it was inevitable that whil...

Rohit Sharma has replaced Virat Kohli as India’s ODI captain. Unlike the T20I captaincy change, where the announcement came from Kohli, citing his workload, this is a BCCI decision, to remove him as ODI skipper. Three months ago, while relinquishing T20I captaincy, Kohli had expressed his desire to lead India in Tests and ODIs, going ahead. “Understanding workload is a very important thing and considering my immense workload over the last 8-9 years playing all 3 formats and captaining regularly for last 5-6 years, I feel I need to give myself space to be fully ready to lead the Indian team in Test and ODI cricket,” he wrote on Instagram on September 16.
