LSG v CSK: Evin Lewis, the poker-faced assassin, Bishnoi, the zid-zap-zoom bowler, Dushmantha’s fielding woes

Evin Lewis adores Chris Gayle. He blasts sixes like him too. But unlike him, he doesn’t pour emotion on the field. Mostly, he projects a deadpan face, concealing both angst and joy. Even after bludgeoning an unbeaten 55 off 23 balls that architected a heist, he did not, forget high-fiving or fist pumping, let out half a smile. With a blank expression on his face, he shook hands with fellow batsman Ayush Badoni, who seemed over the moon. Lewis casually removed his helmet and gloves and dragged himself back to the dug-out, nearly oblivious to the applause of his own teammates. The only time he shed emotion was when a shot that he intended, a thump down the ground off Shivam Dube, did not beget the required result. It turned out to be a four and not a six. He winced momentarily before wea...

IPL 2022, Lucknow Super Giants vs Chennai Super Kings Highlights: Lewis, Bishnoi, Badoni star vs CSK in landmark first win for Lucknow | Cricket News – Times of India

Shivam Dube will look to quickly forget the solitary over he bowled against Lucknow Super Giants at the Brabourne Stadium on Monday. Chennai Super Kings were firmly in control of the match with IPL newbies LSG requiring 34 runs off two overs to emerge victorious. Dube, who hadn't bowled a single ball during the game, was given the responsibility to bowl the 19th over by CSK skipper Ravindra Jadeja. It was a massive blunder. Dube's military medium-pace proved easy fodder for the two batters at the crease - Evin Lewis and Ayush Badoni. As it happened | Scorecard | Points TableFirst, Badoni swept Dube's first ball for a six over square leg. Under pressure, Dube bowled a couple of wides.

Premier League teams agree to 5 subs starting 2022-23

Premier League teams will be able to use five substitutions per game beginning next season in a change announced following Thursday’s shareholders meeting. The switch to five subs — up from three — brings the Premier League in line with other major competitions in Europe. The league had used five subs as a temporary measure when play resumed in 2020 following the league’s mid-season suspension because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The International Football Association Board had extended the changes before a permanent decision was made in October to keep the option of using five substitutes in place. The Premier League, however, had decided against using the IFAB recommendations for the 2020-21 season and instead reverted back to three substitutions. “Clubs agreed to change the rules relati...

1st Test: Bavuma leads South Africa to 233 for four at close against Bangladesh | Cricket News – Times of India

DURBAN: Temba Bavuma scored an unbeaten half-century as South Africa reached 233 for four at the premature close on a stop-start opening day of the first Test against Bangladesh at Kingsmead on Thursday. Play was called off with 76.5 overs bowled as the umpires deemed the light not good enough despite the sun shining down on the ground, a curious end to a day that had started with a 30-minute delay due to a problem with the sight screen. The steady Bavuma was 53 not out having put on the same number for the fifth wicket with Kyle Verreynne, who was not out on 27. The pair will hope to push on to a big first-innings score on day two after the home side were sent into bat, another interesting decision at a ground where spin is very much in play in the latter stages of the match.

FIFA sets World Cup draw seedings with updated rankings

The United States received a boost for the World Cup draw and Canada took a hit in Thursday’s updated FIFA rankings. The Americans, who failed to qualify for the last World Cup, will be in Pot 2 after being ranked 15th in the world. Canada, which won the North American qualifying group and will play at the tournament for the first time in 36 years, missed a chance for a rankings boost by losing at Panama 1-0 in its final qualifier. Instead, Canada will be among the lowest seeded teams in Pot 4. The eight groups for the tournament in Qatar will be drawn Friday from four pots. Qatar gets the top-seeded slot given to the World Cup host nation despite being ranked No. 51. The other top-seeded teams are Brazil, Belgium, defending champion France, Argentina, England, Spain and Portugal. ...

Nagpur’s runaway MMA fighter Vyas ready to take MFN 8 by storm | More sports News – Times of India

NAGPUR: Indian Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Kushal Vyas, who hails from Koradi village in Nagpur, is set to face Rahul Thapa in the 8th edition of Matrix Fight Night (MFN) at the Siri Fort Sports Complex in New Delhi on Friday. Ahead of the major bout against a strong opponent, Kushal opened up on his journey into the competitive world of MMA and how he had to run away from home at the age of 12 to pursue his passion for combat sports. While the opportunities to pursue sports in his village were far and few, Kushal, who was studying at the Seventh-Day Adventist Higher Secondary School, in Nagpur, was introduced to boxing at another school in his village. “In my village, there was no interest in sports. The belief was that one should study, get a job and earn a living. At that time, ...

Premier League to introduce five subs from next season | Football News – Times of India

LONDON: Premier League clubs will be able to make five substitutions from the 2022/23 season after they belatedly agreed to the rule change on Thursday. Teams in the English top flight were allowed to make five changes for the final stages of the 2019/20 season due to fixture congestion caused by the coronavirus pandemic. However, unlike other major leagues and European competitions, the rule then reverted to three substitutions per side due to fears that extra changes gave an advantage to the bigger clubs with deeper squads. "From next season, clubs will be permitted to use five substitutions, to be made on three occasions during a match, with an additional opportunity at half-time," the Premier League said in a statement. Premier League Shareholders met today and discussed a range of ...

Dinesh Karthik is as cool as MS Dhoni: RCB skipper Faf du Plessis

Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Faf du Plessis has lavished praise on teammate Dinesh Karthik, saying his calm demeanour is close to what Mahendra Singh Dhoni displays in the final overs of the game. Karthik clobbered a six and a four in the first two deliveries of the last over to take RCB home after they were in a spot of bother chasing a tricky target of 129 against Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday night. “DK’s experience helped in the end, cool-calm, runs weren’t never really too far away. He’s probably as cool as MS Dhoni can get in the last five overs,” said RCB captain Faf du Plessis, who has played with Dhoni at CSK, in the post-match presentation. Seamers Akash Deep and Mohammed Siraj had shared three wickets in the powerplays to leave KKR at 44 for 3 and Wanindu Hasarang...

CAIRO: Mohamed Salah has stirred doubts about his future with the Egyptian national team following their failure to qualify for the World Cup.

Premier League: Fine margins as Man City, Liverpool wade into title-race finale

The final international break is over. The remaining games are right there in front of them. The starting gun is about to be fired on another sprint to the line between Manchester City and Liverpool in the Premier League. Saturday marks the beginning of a six-week fight for the title between two teams that have dominated English soccer over the past five years and set a new bar when it comes to what’s required to win the league. And here they are again, back as the top two and separated by just one point with nine matches to go — one of which sees them face each other in what could be the defining match of the season. City, the defending champion, holds the lead — as it has done since the end of December — but an advantage that was as large as 14 points in mid-January, when Liverpoo...

FIFA heads for record seven billion dollar revenues | Football News – Times of India

DOHA: FIFA is on target to reap record revenues of seven billion dollars on the back of this year's Qatar World Cup, president Gianni Infantino said Thursday as experts predicted a long-term financial boom for football.
