ISL: Diaz redeems himself with double as Kerala Blasters bolster semifinal hopes | Football News – Times of India

Kerala Blasters head coach Ivan Vukomanovic had spoken about the importance of luck in the build-up to Saturday's crucial Indian Super League (ISL) clash against Chennaiyin FC. After the first 45 minutes at Tilak Maidan in Goa, the Serbian might have been convinced that Lady Luck had deserted him yet again. Needing a win to bolster their chances of making the semifinals, Vukomanovic had seen striker Jorge Pereyra Diaz miss a couple of gilt-edged chances in the first half. But the Argentine redeemed himself with a three-minute double after restart. Adrian Luna scored the other as Blasters registered a comprehensive 3-0 win. The Yellow Army face Mumbai in their next outing on Wednesday before their final league fixture against Goa on March 6. Hungarian attacker Vladimir Koman had almost s...

EPL: Ronaldo and Manchester United left frustrated in goalless draw | Football News – Times of India

MANCHESTER: Manchester United were held to a goalless draw at home to lowly Watford at Old Trafford on Saturday, denting their hopes of a top four finish in the Premier League. The result leaves United on 47 points in fourth place, two points ahead of Arsenal but the Gunners have three games in hand and the dropped two points could prove crucial in United's attempt to get into next season's Champions League. Ralf Rangnick's side were booed off the field at the end of the draw against relegation-threatened Watford having failed to test visiting keeper Ben Foster enough. Cristiano Ronaldo struck the post in the fifth minute with a shot on the turn and then had an effort ruled out for offside. The former Real Madrid forward turned in a low cross from Alex Telles but his celebrations were c...

Sweden join Poles in boycotting Russia in World Cup play-offs: Federation | Football News – Times of India

STOCKHOLM: Sweden will not play Russia in the 2022 World Cup play-offs because of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the football federation said on Saturday. Sweden would have to beat the Czech Republic and Russia overcome Poland for them to face each other on March 29 in Russia. "Whatever FIFA decide, we will not play against Russia in March," Karl-Erik Nilsson, president of the federation said in a statement. Earlier on Saturday the Poles said they would not play the Russians in Moscow -- which hosted the World Cup final only four years ago -- on March 24 for the same reason. The Polish and Swedish federations had issued a statement along with the Czechs on Thursday -- the day the invasion began -- demanding FIFA play the matches away from Russia.

EPL: Leeds’ relegation fears intensify after thrashing by Spurs | Football News – Times of India

LEEDS (England): Leeds United's Premier League relegation fears intensified after they slumped to a 4-0 defeat at home to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. Having conceded 16 goals in their last four matches, Leeds had clearly not solved their defensive issues ahead of Spurs' visit, and whatever game plan they had was thrown out the window within 15 minutes as Matt Doherty and Dejan Kulusevski put Spurs 2-0 up. Harry Kane volleyed home a third in the 27th minute, making Leeds only the second side in Premier League history to concede three or more goals in five consecutive matches in the competition, after Sunderland in November 2005. Son Heung-min completed the rout late on, on the end of a sumptuous pass from Kane. A fifth defeat in their last six league matches for Leeds leaves them 15th...

India steamroll Sri Lanka to seal series

Sri Lanka won moments, India won the match. The hosts clinched it by seven wickets with 17 balls remaining to annex the T20I series. The victory in the end came in a canter, Ravindra Jadeja blazing to 45 not out off 18 balls and Shreyas Iyer anchoring the chase with an unbeaten 74 in 44 deliveries. Against a daunting 183/5 posted by Sri Lanka, India’s quality and depth eventually shone through. The tourists will rue poor captaincy from Dasun Shanaka, his 19-ball 47 not out notwithstanding, that allowed Iyer to grow into the game. A more proactive approach and the Indian batsman probably wouldn’t have lasted that long to inflict hurt on the Islanders. Sri Lanka had racked up 80 runs in their last five overs to give themselves a very good chance in cold Dharamsala, in conditi...

Chelsea owner Abramovich hands over ‘stewardship’ of club

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich suddenly handed over the “stewardship and care” of the Premier League club to its charitable foundation trustees on Saturday. The move came after a member of the British parliament called for the Russian billionaire to hand over the club in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Abramovich, who has owned Chelsea since 2003, made no mention of the war in his statement. “During my nearly 20-year ownership of Chelsea FC, I have always viewed my role as a custodian of the club, whose job it is ensuring that we are as successful as we can be today, as well as build for the future, while also playing a positive role in our communities,” he said. “I have always taken decisions with the Club’s best interest at heart.

Rohit trusts me a lot, I have got the freedom to do whatever I want to: Bumrah tells Ashwin | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Rohit Sharma's trusted lieutenant Jasprit Bumrah says the India skipper has always had unflinching faith in his ability, backing him to bowl the most important overs even when he was new at Mumbai Indians, and now gives him the freedom to do things his way. If Bumrah is to be believed, then Rohit has played a crucial role in his development as one of the world's premier fast bowlers. "When I came into the side Ricky (Ponting) was the captain and I was not playing regularly. I started playing a lot under Rohit, he had a lot of confidence in me. He instilled a lot of confidence," Bumrah said during a conversation with India team-mate Ravichandran Ashwin on the senior off-spinner's 'DRS With Ash' episode on his YouTube channel.

Ranji Trophy: Ishant bowls only nine overs, Delhi all but out of quarterfinals race | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Ishant Sharma got a wicket in his first spell but never looked incisive in his nine overs as Jharkhand, riding twin centuries from Nazim Siddiqui and Kumar Suraj, put Delhi on the brink of elimination in their group H Ranji Trophy match. Jharkhand ended the third and penultimate day at 288 for five in 76 overs and, with an overall lead of 315, is all but sure of three points. They would probably bat another hour on the final day to nullify any remote chance of Delhi chasing the target in just five hours. If Delhi end with another one point, they would only survive in theory as even a seven point game (bonus) against Chattisgarh won't allow them to surpass Tamil Nadu. In the morning, Jonty Sidhu (79) was the fifth victim of left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem when he tried to give...

India land 1-2 blow on Spain with comeback wins

Within the team, Navneet Kaur is hailed as the best player in one-on-one situations. On Saturday, the India forward showed why her teammates rate her skill so highly. India were having trouble creating anything against Spain in their home debut in the Pro League. To complicate the situation for them, Spain capitalised on their dominant start and took the lead in the 18th minute through Marta Segu. India were looking for inspiration, and it came from Navneet, who efficiently goes about her business on the pitch, almost unnoticed. Within a minute of restart after conceding the goal, Navneet found herself with the ball along the byline inside the Spanish ‘D’, on the left. Squeezed to the side, surrounded by red shirts and seemingly nowhere to go, Navneet, one would have th...

Harry Kane, Son script new Premier League record as Spurs rip through Leeds

Tottenham became the latest team to rip through Leeds’ fragile defense, winning 4-0 at Elland Road on Saturday to give manager Antonio Conte something to smile about this time. Matt Doherty, Dejan Kulusevski and Harry Kane scored goals in the opening 27 minutes and Leeds’ players were booed off at halftime. Son Heung-min added a fourth in the 85th minute, running onto an exquisite long pass from Kane to finish past goalkeeper Illan Meslier, and it was the 20th goal that Leeds has conceded in five games in February. That’s a Premier League record for goals allowed for a single month. The win saw Tottenham bounce back from a 1-0 loss at Burnley on Wednesday, after which an emotional Conte cast doubt on his own ability to get Tottenham competing for titles and even questioned his future at...
