How Carlo Ancelotti inspired Real Madrid’s players with a video clip

On the eve of Real Madrid’s semifinal against Manchester City, manager Carlo Ancelotti gathered all his players in a room and played a video. It was a montage of all the comebacks Real Madrid had made this season – a total of eight in all – and he ended the session with a rallying call. “There is one missing,” he told his players. On Wednesday, Real Madrid completed their ninth comeback of the season, beating Manchester City in a sensational fashion. And as much as anything, the Spanish champions’ win was a testament to Ancelotti’s greatness. By masterminding the win, the Italian marked himself yet again among the managerial greats of this era. Be it the wins over PSG, Chelsea, or now City, Ancelotti has revitalised a Madrid team that lost both Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane at the be...

IPL 2022: Unstoppable Warner rubs salt into SRH wounds

Warner’s will, Powell’s power An indication of just how determined David Warner was against the side for which he’d made 4,000 runs came in his watchfulness against Bhuvneshwar Kumar early on. Into his second over, Bhuvneshwar was yet to concede a run. Big swing both ways and a line constantly threatening either the stumps or the outside edge; even without the deceptive changes of pace and length, he is a hard bowler to go after. He’d already toyed with Mandeep Singh in the game’s opening over. Warner was beaten too on the outside edge, and gave that spell the respect it deserved – he left alone a couple of deliveries and quietly defended two more. The fun began in the fourth over when Umran Malik came on. The young tearway has got the country excited with his extreme pace, and there wa...

Mandeep struggles against swing; Warner returns to haunt Hyderabad and Pant turns every Shreyas delivery into half volley

Delhi Capitals brought on Mandeep Singh for Prithvi Shaw and Bhuvneshwar Kumar took the opportunity to play a cat and mouse game with the replacement opener before having him in the bag. A sharp outswinger carried the ‘good evening’ message and Mandeep, a tad fidgety, left it at the last moment. Kumar picked the uneasiness and decided to tease the batsman with swing. A couple of inswingers beat the bat and hit the pad, as Mandeep looked cluless. His prey nicely set up, Kumar bowled an outswinger, as if he had almost pre-empted the unconvincing prod that Mandeep would offer. The ball actually held its line and the outside edge went to the wicketkeeper. Mandeep was put out of his misery, but DC had a poor start. Their opening experiment failed. – Shamik Chakrabarty  Señor Rishabh @ tappa ...

IPL 2022, Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Highlights: Warner, Powell set up big win for DC against SRH | Cricket News – Times of India

If there was one streetfighter you don't want to irk, it has to be David Warner. Sunrisers Hyderabad just found out in their first encounter after the acrimonious separation with their most prolific player on Thursday night at the Brabourne stadium. Delhi Capitals have been yearning for a one big innings from their batters and they had Warner taking strike, sniffing revenge against a franchise which had betrayed him last season. Warner came out unbeaten with a 58-ball 92, chest thrusting out after helping Capitals post a daunting 207/3 with the help of putting up an unbeaten 66-ball 122-run partnership with Rovman Powell who finished 67 not out off 35 balls. The ex-SRH talisman lived up to his X-factor billing when Capitals had to make two forced changes as Prithvi Shaw was under the we...

Nadal digs deep to move into Madrid Open quarters | Tennis News – Times of India

MADRID: Rafael Nadal saved four match points to beat Belgian David Goffin 6-3 5-7 7-6(9) in an enthralling match on Thursday and move into the Madrid Open quarter-finals. Just as his beloved Real Madrid came back from the brink to reach the Champions League soccer final on Wednesday, 35-year-old Nadal found extra energy in reserve to win a lengthy tiebreak and secure the 1,050th win of his career. Uncharacteristic errors and double faults from third seed Nadal allowed Goffin to break first and go 3-2 up in the opening set but the Spaniard quickly broke back twice to serve out the set, sealing it with a venomous crosscourt forehand winner. Nadal's stroke-making became more confident in the second set as he used every corner of the court to pepper winners past Goffin, who had no answer an...

A leaky tin-roofed home, little food on table, a mother’s sacrifice: DC batter Rovman Powell’s rise from poverty to cricketing riches

The day Rovman Powell’s mother Joan Plummer found she was pregnant, her partner told her to abort. She broke off the relationship and decided to go her own way. At the start of every month she would tell herself, “if I can get through this month, then I can do it for one more month”. She did odd jobs to support herself and Powell popped out, in her words, a “bouncy nine-and-half pounds baby”. “No adjectives are enough to describe my mother. I grew up watching her wash clothes for people just to make a living, just to put food for us, just for me to go to school,” Powell says in a documentary-series produced by Caribbean Premier League. “Whenever I am faced with tough challenges, I tell myself, ‘ listen I am not doing this for myself… I am doing it for my mother, my sister. Maybe if I wa...

Abramovich says he has not asked for Chelsea loan to be repaid | Football News – Times of India

Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich on Thursday denied media reports that he has asked for his loan to Chelsea football club to be repaid, saying that the suggestions are "entirely false". Premier League Chelsea were put up for sale by Abramovich following Russia's invasion of Ukraine and before sanctions were imposed on him by the British government. A consortium led by LA Dodgers part-owner Todd Boehly has been in negotiations to buy the club for $3 billion while British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe is not giving up on a bid despite apparent rejection from the U.S. bank handling the sale. The loan Abramovich made to Chelsea is reported to total 1.5 billion pounds ($1.85 billion). "Firstly, Mr Abramovich's intentions in relation to gifting the proceeds from the Chelsea sale to charity have ...

IPL 2022: SRH pacer Umran Malik bowls fastest delivery of the season, clocks 157 kmph against DC | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer Umran Malik clocked 157 kmph on Thursday, bowling the fastest delivery of ongoing IPL 2022. Malik accomplished this feat during his side's match against Delhi Capitals at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. During the final over of DC's innings, he bowled a full-length delivery which was wide of off stump, which was hit by batter Rovman Powell for a four. Though the result was not in favour of Malik, the ball was another feather in the cap for the pacer, who has been garnering acclaim for his fast bowling, accuracy and wicket-taking ability during the ongoing season of IPL from fans and cricketers from past and present alike. Overall, the match was not really great for the Jammu and Kashmir pacer, as he ended his four-over spell giving away 52 runs without any...

Mandeep Singh equals Rohit Sharma’s unwanted record of most ducks in IPL history | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Mandeep Singh on Thursday equalled the unwanted record of Rohit Sharma for most ducks in the Indian Premier League history. Mandeep equalled Mumbai Indians skipper for this unwanted record in match number 50 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 between Delhi Capitals and SunRisers Hyderabad at the Brabourne Stadium. In the very first over of the match, Bhuvneshwar Kumar removed DC batter Mandeep for a 5-ball duck.

Teen athletics star Priya Mohan, who beat Dutee, sparks buzz with top numbers on biomechanics chart

Priya Mohan had a go at singing, dancing, playing the keyboard, even painting. “I tried them out because my parents wanted me to, but my first and only love has been athletics,” she says.

NEW DELHI: The IPL media rights for the next five-year cycle, which might fetch the BCCI over Rs 50,000 crore, has also attracted interest from international broadcasters like Sky Sports UK and South Africa's Supersport, who have reportedly picked up bid documents. Some of the known names that have already picked up the ITT (invitation to tender) are Viacom-18, Zee Entertainment (allowed after withdrawing cases against BCCI), Sony, Dream11, Star (current rights holder), making it an intense battle.

English actor Stephen Fry nominated new MCC president | Cricket News – Times of India

British actor Stephen Fry will become the next president of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), a year after he advocated for change following a racism scandal that shook English cricket. A lifelong cricket fan, Fry was only the second non-cricketing personality after the late archbishop Desmond Tutu to give the prestigious Spirit of Cricket Cowdrey Lecture in which he denounced the "shameful scandals that regularly seem to engulf the game we love".

Rishabh Pant doing well as DC skipper, big knock isn’t far away: Suresh Raina | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Former India batter Suresh Raina feels Rishabh Pant has done exceedingly well as Delhi Capitals captain and his handling of left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav is a testimony to that.

"Pant for me has been doing great as a captain. He has utilised Kuldeep Yadav very well and now he is winning matches for Delhi. But Pant - the batsman - still has to fire.
