Rajat Patidar’s unbeaten 112 off 54, Harshal Patel’s clever bowling take Bengaluru to the Qualifier 2

Synopsis: Patidar’s ton, Harshal’s skill win the match for RCB. There was a temporary lull in Lucknow Super Giants’ chase of 208 for victory, when Wanindu Hasaranga and Harshal Patel put on the choke. Run-rate dipped and asking-rate went past 14. After the second strategic time-out, Super Giants had to throw the kitchen sink. From Royal Challengers Bangalore’s point of view, Hasaranga’s final two overs were the key, but irrespective of Deepak Hooda’s wicket, the leg-spinner conceded 32 runs in those two overs. Harshal bowled the 18th over and started off with six wides in the first two balls. The medium pacer brilliantly pulled things back to give away only two more runs plus Marcus Stoinis’ wicket. It was the game-changer. Josh Hazlewood dismissed KL Rahul in the next over and that was...

Rajat Patidar: Madhya Pradesh’s ‘Hanuman’ delivers for RCB

“Rajat sankat-mochan hai hamare team ka [Rajat is the problem-solver (another name for Lord Hanuman) of our team]. He has played such kind of innings before but as none came on TV, people didn’t know about him earlier. Now that he has scored (on Wednesday night), he has certainly become the Hanuman of RCB,” Ishwar Pandey, the veteran fast bowler, tells The Indian Express about his Madhya Pradesh team-mate. Patidar has been playing on the domestic circuit for MP since 2015 and has rescued his team from precarious situations several times in the past. But having played four games for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League 2021, he had gone unsold in this year’s auction.

No ranking points, but Wimbledon will still rank high for G.O.A.T players

Two-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray said on Wednesday that the prestige of playing and winning Wimbledon outweighs the importance of ranking points. Likening it to The Masters in golf and the FIFA World Cup, Murray tweeted that despite it being devoid of points, “Wimbledon will never be an exhibition and never feel like an exhibition.” The decision of ATP and WTA – which came in the wake of Wimbledon’s ban on Russian and Belarusian players following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine – has started a debate over what it will mean for the main draws at SW19 this year. While the likes of Naomi Osaka have equated it to an exhibition, men’s and women’s World No. 1s Novak Djokovic and Iga Swiatek have both confirmed their presence at Wimbledon this year.
