Dinesh Karthik leads comeback as India level series 2-2

From teetering on the edge of the cliff, India have crawled back to breathe again and take the series to the final game in Bangalore. Sizeable credit for the series-levelling 82-run victory in Rajkot goes to the unflustered big-hitting brilliance of Dinesh Karthik and Hardik Pandya, whose 65 runs in 5.3 overs propelled India to 169 runs on a tacky surface, as well as the synchronised utility of its bowling firm. Give these set of bowlers conditions that remotely abet their craft, they make life impossibly difficult for overseas batsmen to live, let alone prosper. The surface was not as conducive to stroke-play as the other venues in this series. Some balls stopped, some skidded along, some just leapt off good-length areas. The bounce was spongy rather than a trampoline. Both seamers an...

Indonesia Open badminton: Wiser, sharper Prannoy two wins from first title in 5 years

He’s called the Backhand Beast for his attack when the forearm goes high across the face and the shuttle is thwacked down with force. But HS Prannoy has in his arsenal some of the most exquisite defensive variations on the backhand. These backhand beauties, often counter-tricks to negotiate both the opponent and more so the tricky drift, are helping the 29-year-old resurrect a fantastic 2022 from the ashes of the last five years. Prannoy is searching for his first title since the US Open in July of 2017. But that magical season – when he took out opponents like Lee Chong Wei and Chen Long in back-to- back matches offering Kidambi Srikanth a springboard to surge to the Indonesia title – remains a whirlwind blur. He has continued scalping big names – including Viktor Axelsen at Bali last ...
