Devotion and courage: David Miller’s rise from talented teen to international match-winner

When David Miller was around three years old, his father Andrew gifted him a plastic golf set. He gently rolled a ball at the toddler, and David, with a fluid straight swing of the miniature club, swung it over his father’s head. “I was expecting him to swing across the line, as kids of his age do. Never imagined that he would hit straight over my head,” Andrew narrates to the Indian Express. He screamed in excitement. His wife offered a word of caution. “She was like wait, try once more. Maybe it was a fluke. So I bowled once more around the same area. The result was the same, straight over my head,” he says, his voice seemingly recapturing the raw excitement that he felt nearly three decades ago. He blurted out to his wife: “One day, he would play for South Africa. I did not mean it a...

Ranji Trophy 2022: Sudip Gharami repays faith with maiden century to put Bengal in charge against Jharkhand

Sudip Kumar Gharami spent his childhood in a kachcha house with a bamboo roof in Naihati — 44 kilometres from Kolkata. His father, Susanta Gharami, a raj mistry by profession, would take loans from relatives not to build a pakka makaan, but to buy cricket equipment for his son. The sole reason was that Susanta is a die-hard Sachin Tendulkar fan and had promised himself that he would build a new house only if his son became a professional cricketer. A couple of years ago, the Gharami family moved to a new house, Sudip was scoring heaps of runs for Bengal at the junior level, and senior team coach Arun Lal was so impressed that he fast-tracked him into the senior side. Sudip was a member of the Bengal team, which ended up runners-up in the 2019-20 Ranji Trophy. 🚨 Limited Time Offer | Expr...

NBA Finals: Golden State Warriors bounce back as the Boston Celtics’ standards fall

The Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green – the engine of this championship dynasty team – suggested after their Game 1 loss in the NBA Finals that Boston Celtics’ shooting was not sustainable. Green was proven right as the Warriors took Game 2 at the Chase Centre, winning 107-88 on Sunday to even the series 1-1. Boston’s shooting regresses In Game 1, Derrick White, Al Horford and Marcus Smart combined for 15/23 from three-point range.

Murray awed by Rafael Nadal’s ‘incredible’ French Open record | Tennis News – Times of India

STUTTGART (Germany): Before continuing his grass court preparations, Andy Murray on Monday did the maths on Rafael Nadal's latest feat on clay. The 36-year-old Spaniard on Sunday routed Norway's Casper Ruud 6-3, 6-3, 6-0 in the final at Roland Garros to extend two records. It was not only his 22nd Grand Slam title but also his 14th French Open. "Winning 14 Grand Slams at the same place is incredible," said Murray in Stuttgart. "There's hardly any players on the Tour who will get the opportunity to play Roland Garros 14 times, much less win it." Nadal won his first French Open title in 2005. In the 17 seasons since then, he has lost just three matches at Roland Garros and been forced out once by a wrist injury. Murray used the sport's latest prodigy, Nadal's compatriot Carlos Alcaraz, fo...
