England paceman Ollie Robinson set for lengthy spell on the sidelines | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: England paceman Ollie Robinson is set to miss at least the next three Tests as he continues to struggle with a back injury. Robinson has not played for England since making the last of his nine Test appearances in the Ashes finale in January and missed the subsequent tour of the West Indies with back spasms. His injury problems have persisted during the ongoing English season, together with a positive case of Covid-19, and reports in the British media suggest the most recent scan proved inconclusive. The 28-year-old Sussex quick has had an injection to ease the pain and is expected to be missing from action for another three weeks at least. He is unlikely to be fit for the series finale at Headingley or the one-off Test against India at Edgbaston in July. Several England quicks ...

An era in women’s cricket ends as Mithali Raj retires | Cricket News – Times of India

HYDERABAD: An era in women's cricket, which spanned more than two decades, came to a 'reluctant' end on Wednesday. Hyderabad's legendary player Mithali Raj, who was literally 'pushed' into the game by her mother Leela Raj, finally called it quits. Mithali has set several records in her illustrious career and her aggregate of 10,868 international runs in 333 matches — ODIS, Tests and T2OI — will take some beating. With most runs in women's cricket and the only Indian captain - man or woman - to have led the side in two 50-over World Cup finals, the 39-year-old, however, retires without the World Cup trophy in her cabinet. It was this deep desire to finish as a winner which kept Mithu, as she was fondly called by her family and friends, pushing all boundaries. She was reluctant to call it...

Ranji Trophy 2022: Karnataka skipper Manish Pandey rues batting fiasco | Cricket News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Karnataka skipper Manish Pandey looked heartbroken after his team’s five-wicket loss to Uttar Pradesh in the Ranji Trophy quarterfinals on Wednesday. The team’s famed batting line-up fell short and the combined experience of four of their top-order batsmen – Mayank Agarwal, Manish Pandey, Karun Nair and R Samarth — and the over 22,000 first-class runs they have scored counted for little. “It is disappointing from a batting point of view, as a batsman myself and the batting group. The second innings — this was not among the best batting performances we had of late. But yesterday (Tuesday) was not a day we want to remember. We should have taken our time and seen the overs through. We cannot repeat the same mistake again,” the skipper reasoned. Pandey also revealed that the mann...
