“My brother Sarfaraz Khan and I had only one dream – to play for India and make my father happy”: Musheer

Brothers Sarfaraz Khan and Musheer Khan will be representing the Mumbai Ranji Trophy team in the knockouts after the selectors picked the 18-year-old Musheer in the team led by Prithvi Shaw. Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun wasn’t selected for the game against Uttarakhand in Bangalore while Ajinkya Rahane is yet to recover from his hamstring injury. The rookie Musheer, an opener and left-arm spinner, had tallied 670 runs in nine games with an average of 67 in the under-19 Cooch Behar Trophy, with two hundreds and five fifties. Last year, he was the man of the tournament in the A division Police Shield and the Madhav Mantri one-day tournament. It’s as much the story of father and coach Naushad as it’s about the sons. The seed for making his children professional cricketers was planted in the...

Superbet Poland chess: Viswanathan Anand finishes overall joint second | Chess News – Times of India

WARSAW: Former world champion Viswanathan Anand had a moderate run on the second day of the Blitz section to finish overall joint second in the Superbet Rapid and Blitz Poland chess tournament here on Monday.

Praful Patel requests FIFA chief Infantino to not ban India | Football News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Removed as the president of All India Football Federation by the Supreme Court, Praful Patel on Monday requested FIFA chief Gianni Infantino to not impose a ban on the country after the sports body was placed under a Committee of Administrators. Last week, the SC appointed a three-member Committee of Administrators (CoA) to run the AIFF, virtually revoking the powers of its governing body headed by Patel while opening up the possibility of a FIFA ban for "external interference".

IPL 2022: Key is to bowl in right areas in powerplay, says Shami | Cricket News – Times of India

KOLKATA: India and Gujarat Titans speedster Mohammed Shami, the highest wicket-taker in power-play overs this IPL season, on Monday said the secret for his success was to bowl in the right areas. Shami has taken 11 wickets at 20 runs apiece to set it up for the Titans in the power-play overs. "In T20 cricket, we focus on variations -- slower ones, bouncers. But according to me it's about bowling in the right areas then it becomes a difficult score. That's always my gameplan," Shami said during a virtual media interaction on the eve of the first IPL Qualifier against Rajasthan Royals. "The white ball does not swing after a few overs. So it's always my gameplan to use the new ball as much as you can. "You can say it's all about experience. It's very important to control your line and leng...

PARIS: Barbora Krejcikova's French Open title defence ended in the opening round on Monday as local hope Diane Parry roared to a 1-6, 6-2, 6-3 victory against the second-seeded Czech.

Record 6th-wicket stand helps Bangladesh recover in 2nd test

Liton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim hit centuries Monday as Bangladesh recovered from a shaky 24-5 to end day one of the second test against Sri Lanka on 277-5. Liton was batting on 135 and Mushfiqur, who scored 105 in the first test, was on 115 after sharing a record 253 runs in an unbroken sixth-wicket stand. They made the highest partnership for the sixth wicket or lower after losing the first five wickets for 25 runs or less, breaking the record set by Pakistan duo Wallis Mathias and Shujauddin against West Indies in 1959. It was also Bangladesh’s highest sixth-wicket partnership, eclipsing the 191 by Mohammad Ashraful and Mushfiqur Rahim against Sri Lanka in 2007.

Motera, not Eden, is my home, says Bengal’s Wriddhiman Saha | Cricket News – Times of India

KOLKATA: The hurt and disillusionment was palpable as a disgruntled India wicketkeeper-batter Wriddhiman Saha on Monday called the Motera Stadium his new "home ground", having played all his life at the iconic Eden Gardens.

Saha is seeking an exit from Bengal domestic cricket after a CAB official questioned his commitment for the state Ranji team.

Will Deepak Hooda, who had fought with Krunal last year, play for Baroda again?
