GT vs LSG: Saha jus can’t help it, Bad boys turn good & Shami’s perfect set-up

Wriddhiman Saha succeeded in getting out. He had just nearly shovelled out a return catch to the bowler Mohsin Khan, who was in the midst of yet another impressive spell, but Khan collapsed while trying to turn back. The ball had popped behind him, not too far, but when he tried to turn on his follow-through he twisted his ankle and collapsed. Luckily, he wasn’t injured. It was a slower one that had foxed Saha, and he rolled his finger on the ball pretty late in the piece and that perhaps threw off Saha. Be as it may, Khan went for another slower one, next ball. Saha yet again tried to check his punch, but this time succeeded in spooning a dolly to mid-on. On a pitch, where the early signs seemed to suggest the ball is going to grip and hold, Lucknow Giants had started off well. Though...

IPL 2022: Titans first among equals

Gujarat Titans’ 144/4 wasn’t a match-winning total. Far from it. But the pitch wasn’t ideal for stroke-play and grafting was the order of the day. Once in a while, such low-scoring games are enjoyable amid an overdose of batting bludgeoning in T20 cricket. Titans won and secured a place in the playoffs because they had Shubman Gill’s class and a well-rounded bowling attack to see them through. A top-heavy Lucknow Super Giants batting imploded once their openers got out cheaply. They were bowled out for 82 to lose by 62 runs. Gill holds fort Titans’ innings, for the greater part, was an exercise in sterility, in sync with the stadium atmosphere. Large swathes of empty seats at the MCA Stadium in Pune greeted the two table-toppers and it seemed to have affected the Titans’ batting intensi...

PUNE: Gujarat Titans returned to winning ways after back-to-back losses and became the first team to seal their place in the play-offs by defeating Lucknow Super Giants by 62 runs in an Indian Premier League match on Tuesday. Even though LSG did a decent job with the ball to restrict GT to 144 for 4 after being asked to bowl, the KL Rahul-led side flopped with the bat as they were bowled out for 82 in 13.5 overs. As it happened | Scorecard | Points TableRashid Khan (4/24) starred with the ball for GT, while Yash Dayal (2/24) and R Sai Kishore (2/7) picked up two wickets each.

Avesh Khan the cool cat from Indore, with no dhannat, no bhannat

Last year, days after he was named in the Indian team, a very excited reporter from his hometown had asked Avesh Khan a question that had a rich sprinkling of charmingly rich Indori Hindi. Throwing in a couple of onomatopeic local slangs she asked with unadulterated enthusiasm: “Indore apni dhannat and bhannat ke liye prachilit hai, aapki ball mai kitni dhannat and bhannat dekhi jayegi?” It will be on the weak legs of words like “thunder” and “swagger” that the English language can venture anywhere near dhannat and bhannat. Avesh got the drift in the blink of an eye and it would have been so easy for the pacer, capable of consistently clocking in high 140 kph, to give the headline that the rookie had dreamt. But he let facts come in the way of a great headline. “Nahi dimaag se bowling ...

End of an era: FIFA video game to disappear as EA Sports partnership ends

The FIFA video game will be disappearing after the maker failed to strike a new licensing deal with world soccer’s governing body. Instead, EA Sports FC will be introduced from 2023 after the company creates the final game in partnership with FIFA later this year. EA has been producing a FIFA game for around three decades and its fond association with fans worldwide helped the Zurich-based organization’s brand when it was tarnished amid a wave of arrests of soccer officials in 2015. For many, FIFA means a game rather than a sports politics institution. Now FIFA will have to search for new video gaming opportunities beyond EA. FIFA is officially dead A two-decade old partnership has been dissolved The games will be called ‘EA SportsFC’ as of 2023 and onward pic.twitter.com/KxtNF5tFkD — ...

Harsh reality of jail hits Becker

Tennis legend Boris Becker’s time in prison has begun on a rough note with the six-time Grand Slam champion ‘shocked’ by the alleged lack of hygiene and quality of food on service at Wandsworth Prison. Becker is spending time in prison after he was sentenced for hiding assets during his bankruptcy proceedings, which began in 2017. The former World No.1 was found guilty on four counts of the Insolvency Act – removal of property, two counts of failing to disclose estate, and concealing debt.

8 rounds in expanded Champions League 1st stage from 2024

A scaled-back first phase to the expanded Champions League in 2024 was approved by UEFA on Tuesday to quell a backlash around Europe. The reformatted group stage has been reduced from 10 rounds to eight, and backup places for teams based on historical performance have been removed. The stage will still grow from 32 to 36 teams based around a single standings rather than eight groups. Weeks of talks involving domestic leagues and clubs produced the revised format that will see two additional places in the expanded format awarded to the two countries with the highest UEFA ranking based on their teams’ results in European competitions the previous season. If the system was already in place, it would mean the fifth-place team in England would qualify for the Champions League along with a se...

Why upstarts LSG and GT have taken IPL by storm

IPL 2022 has thrown up several surprises, perhaps none more so than the two new franchises occupying the top two positions as one approaches the business end of the league phase. While usual suspects like Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders have struggled, newbies Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans have hit the ground running. The Indian Express provides five standout reasons why they have succeeded so far: 1. Batting prowess: For Lucknow, KL Rahul has been on a dream run.

Giro d’Italia loses Miguel Angel Lopez as Mount Etna looms | More sports News – Times of India

CATANIA (Italy): The Giro d'Italia lost one of its top contenders on Tuesday as Colombian climber Miguel Angel Lopez of Astana pulled up with the peloton headed towards a Mount Etna summit finish on stage 4. Lopez finished third on both the Vuelta a Espana and the Giro in 2018 and has stage wins on all three grand tours, and the 28-year-old's loss somewhat isolates team leader Vincenzo Nibali. Sicilian native Nibali is in the spotlight Tuesday with an attack on the 23km climb up Mount Etna expected from the veteran on what could be his final Giro. Lopez has had poor luck in Sicily as the last time the Giro came here in 2020 he hit a pothole and was propelled into a building during the Palermo time-trial. Earlier in the race a motorbike caused several riders to tumble when it clipped a r...
