IPL 2022: Rahul, de Kock help Lucknow seal playoff spot, show Kolkata the door

Lucknow Super Giants had racked up the records. Highest opening stand ever in the IPL, between Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul. Third-highest individual score ever in the IPL, from de Kock. The first time in the league’s history that a team batting first hadn’t lost a single wicket in the full 20 overs. But Kolkata Knight Riders stunned LSG with a brave chase. They kept swinging fours and sixes regardless of the wickets they were constantly losing. And Rinku Singh seemed to have landed the knockout blow – with 21 needed off the last over, he had clubbed a four and two sixes off the first three balls from Marcus Stoinis. Another two runs were scrambled off the fourth and KKR needed a mere three off the last two deliveries. Evin Lewis had played his last match on April 7, six weeks ago. He ...

From having no motivation to being excited to wrestle, Vinesh Phogat makes progress on the mat

It begins as a self-deprecating joke. But as Vinesh Phogat starts to peel off the layers, she reveals the extremes she had to go to propel her from a dark, deep corner and back into the spotlight on the wrestling mat. One Saturday, a few months ago, she went out on the 400m track to test her endurance by running as many laps as she could in three minutes, the time duration for one round of a wrestling bout. “I could not even complete one lap! I got so exhausted, I felt like vomiting.” During sparring sessions, wrestlers much smaller and lighter than Vinesh began pummeling her. “Unhone mujhe utha, utha ke maara (They threw me around),” she laughs. Then, in February, she travelled to Istanbul to take part in the Yasar Dogu International. The former world number one wanted to gauge if she’...

Liverpool’s Klopp has ‘no reason’ to talk to Gerrard before title climax | Football News – Times of India

LONDON: Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said he'd no intention of contacting club great Steven Gerrard to offer words of encouragement before the climax to a thrilling Premier League title race this weekend.

Shoaib knew he was chucking, says Sehwag

Former India opener Virender Sehwag said that Shoaib Akhtar “used to jerk his elbow” and “knew he was chucking too.” Speaking at the third episode of ‘Home of Heroes’ on Sports 18, Sehwag also confessed that it was easy for him to read Brett Lee’s ball because his “hand came down straight.” However, he could never anticipate Akhtar’s ball because he could never guess where the hand and ball would come from. Sehwag said, “Shoaib knows he used to jerk his elbow; he knew he was chucking too. Why would ICC ban him otherwise?” “Brett Lee’s hand came down straight, so it was easy to pick the ball. But with Shoaib, you could never guess where the hand and the ball will come from.” “I never feared facing Brett Lee, but with Shoaib, I could not trust what he would do if I hit him twice to the fe...
