IPL 2022: Speak up, Virat! Dhoni’s sticks to the tried, tested and trusted

When Virat Kohli pushed a ball to the left of cover in the sixth over where it was half-stopped after a dive, he set off for a single. His partner Faf du Plessis wasn’t so sure; he stuttered mid-way, taking a couple of dragging steps, as he waited for a signal from Kohli. It didn’t come but eventually they crossed safely.

He even walked across to have a chat and as Kohli seemingly suggested he was waiting to see if the ball was stopped cleanly or not, du Plessis gently shook his head with a smile, and once again gave the signal that he should speak up his intent. Both smiled, and went back to their respective pl...

IPL 2022: All round effort takes RCB past CSK

For a while, it seemed no one was going to stay with Dinesh Karthik and allow him to do his thing but luckily, for Royal Challengers Bangalore, he got strike for a full over in the 20th. And he made it count. Dwaine Pretorius wasn’t too far from the blockhole but Karthik retreated so far back into the crease, with his back leg adjacent to the off-stump, that he somehow managed to swing two stunning sixes over the legside to loot 16 valuable runs in the over. It was the difference between a good total on a pitch that helped turn and where the ball held up a touch, and a below-par one. In this season, Karthik has time and again shown that he doesn’t just slog, but picks his shots and the bowlers to go after. Here he had no choice but to go after the ball in the last over, but even then, ...

The quartet of Mahipal Lomror, who smashed a 27-ball 42, skipper Faf du Plessis (38 off 22), Virat Kohli (30 off 33) and Dinesh Karthik (26 not out off 17) did well to lift RCB to 173 for 8.

Goal! Diego Maradona’s ‘Hand of God’ shirt sets auction record

The shirt worn by Diego Maradona when he scored the controversial “Hand of God” goal against England in the 1986 World Cup has sold for 7.1 million pounds ($9.3 million), the highest price ever paid at auction for a piece of sports memorabilia. Auctioneer Sotheby’s sold the shirt in an online auction that closed Wednesday. It did not identify the buyer. Maradona scored two goals during the quarter-final game in Mexico City on June 22, 1986, just four years after Britain and Argentina had fought a war over the Falkland Islands. The Argentine great’s first goal was ruled a header, but the ball had bounced off Maradona’s fist, out of sight of the referee. Maradona said afterward that it had been scored “a little with the head of Maradona, and a little with the hand of God.” Maradona’s seco...

IPL 2022: How Moeen Ali has Virat Kohli’s number

Moeen Ali has clean bowled Virat Kohli in the past, even in Tests with his big-turning loopy off breaks. Kohli has tried to cover drive on stretched front foot and has been bowled once in a Test in Chennai. This time around, since the ball had been turning decently on the Pune surface, Kohli tried to wrist it with the turn to the on side. But he missed it completely. It spun in sharp from outside off stump to go through the bat-pad-gap and disturb the furniture. Moeen pumped his fist and Kohli had one of those rueful looks at the pitch as he walked away. He had tried to cut a delivery outside off that had gone on straight and was beaten. Then one spun sharply past his pads for a wide. The pitch was helping turn and as soon as Moeen got his line right by starting it from outside off stum...

Will Rohit, Rahul, Virat be India’s top-3 going into the T20 World Cup? | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Their current form may not inspire confidence but skipper Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli will be indispensable in the Indian team during the T20 World Cup in Australia but a change in their batting order may be considered for the benefit of the side, say experts. While IPL is an indicator of current form but the national selection committee under Chetan Sharma at this point is not even remotely harbouring any such thoughts, at least not for the time being. However, one point that is being debated is whether skipper Rohit, his deputy Rahul and team's premier batter Kohli will occupy the top three slots in the batting order at the mega event, set to be played in Australia in October-November. In the last World T20, their batting order didn't yield favourable results and...
