South Africa pull off a heist at the Kotla in the first T20 versus India

This is what confidence does to a player. Only about a few months ago, David Miller was in danger of losing his ‘killer’ moniker. Then, this year’s IPL arrived and a total of 16 games and 481 runs later, the batsman was reborn – someone who sends shivers down the spines of the opposition bowlers. 🚨 Limited Time Offer | Express Premium with ad-lite for just Rs 2/ day 👉🏽 Click here to subscribe 🚨 Rishabh Pant’s India felt the full force of it at Feroz Shah Kotla on Thursday. The pitch eventually played out to be a typical ‘Kotla special’, where the hosts had posted 212/3 batting first. South Africa were playing against scoreboard pressure and they were a batsman light. At 81/3 on the heels of a few tight overs, India probably needed just one more wicket to seal the deal. They ran into Mil...

India versus South Africa: In a lost cause, India’s T20 batting formula for the future emerges

It was only the fifth ball that Ruturaj Gaikwad had faced on a surface that abetted lateral movement with the new ball. Just two balls ago had Kagiso Rabada drawn a hideous grope from him with a ball that held a shade after pitching. The South African talisman traded a stare that could have scorched his eyes, had he gazed back at him. The ball after—the next ball was a non-event flick—Gaikwad shimmied down the surface as though he was countenancing a muck-as-any club bowler, backed away and tried to smear him over the extra cover. He missed—Rabada was shrewd to pick the cues his feet betrayed—and looked witless. The stroke defied logic, even in the helter-skelter world of T20s. The match was just two overs old, the first over was a 13-run bounty, he was getting his eye in, and he was su...

National Inter-State Meet: Ahead of CWG, Worlds, India’s top athletes look to make their mark

Fresh off an “eye-opening” stint in Europe, quarter-miler Priya Mohan has landed in Chennai for the Inter-State Meet, which starts on Thursday, with a target of running below 52 seconds and taking a shot at the World Championship berth after already sealing the U20 Worlds spot. The Bengaluru-based athlete, who is back from a stint in France and Switzerland, will be pushed by the likes of Aishwarya Mishra, the India leader right now with 51.18s, and 17-year-old Rupal who pipped her in the Jr Federation Cup less than a week back. The 400m list also includes Pahal Kiran, who ran below 52 last month, apart from seasoned campaigners like MR Poovamma.

India vs South Africa 1st T20I: David Miller, Rassie van der Dussen fire South Africa to seven-wicket win over India | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: For the first 30 overs of the first T20I, Rishabh Pant would have believed that his first game as India captain was a perfect one. Then David Miller happened. Needing 126 runs in 10 overs to chase down the 212-run target set by India, Miller and Rassie van der Dussen finished with an unbeaten 131-run partnership and ending India’s streak of T20I wins with five balls to spare. Miller, with his unbeaten 31-ball 64, has shown he is in a zone where he can chase down any target with consummate ease as he has been doing over the past two months for Gujarat Titans in the IPL.

India vs South Africa: India’s new-look top-order shows intent but pace still issue for Kishans and Gaikwads | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Scoreboard often reveals what is suggestive and conceals what is vital. One can safely bet his last shirt that Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad will not open for India when they take on Pakistan in their opening T20 World Cup game at the MCG in the last week of October. Yet, this series will be the first of its kind indicator of how life without Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli will look as and when the situation arises. If the first evening is any indicator, the Ruturaj Gaikwads and the Ishan Kishans are ready to shed the archaic style of safety first approach that became India's undoing during the last global edition. They showed intent and threw their bats around with Kishan getting a fifty but both looked in some sort of discomfort when Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nort...

Ranji Trophy 2022: Where Karnataka lost the plot | Cricket News – Times of India

BENGALURU: As the Karnataka team exited the KSCA Alur stadium on Thursday evening after being humbled by Uttar Pradesh in the Ranji Trophy quarterfinals, dusk was settling in. The interplay between the elements resulted in a literal silver lining settling around a dark cloud as the team’s buses wended their way to the city. Sadly, there wasn’t much for Karnataka to take away from the match, barring the pacers’ performance in the first innings. Karnataka ended the season without a title – they also made an appearance in the final of the 20-over Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and reached the quarterfinal of the 50-over Vijay Hazare Trophy, beaten both times by Tamil Nadu – thereby suggesting that it is time for introspection.
