Ind-SA T20I series: Dravid looking to give players long rope for staking claim to World Cup spots

The buzz coming into the T20I series between India and South Africa was Umran Malik, the 22-year-old fast bowler who regularly challenged the speed gun during the Indian Premier League. India played five matches – the last game in Bangalore on Sunday was abandoned after 3.3 overs due to rain – but Malik didn’t get a game. Welcome to Rahul Dravid’s gurukul. This series was Malik’s initiation as an apprentice, along with left-arm seamer Arshdeep Singh, an opportunity to get a feel of the Indian dressing room. Dravid believed in the process as a player and then as a captain. He is following it as the head coach of the Indian team. Back in 1996, as the India probables had a camp before the World Cup, Dravid as a young player was a strong contender to make the final squad. The then selection...

England beats the Netherlands by 6 wickets, seals ODI series

Two days after smashing a world-record score, England wasn’t so comfortable in a six-wicket victory over the Netherlands in a rain-affected second one-day international on Sunday that clinched the three-match series with a game to spare. Set 236 to win off 41 overs, England reached the target with 29 balls to spare — but only after a midinnings wobble that saw captain Eoin Morgan depart for a seven-ball duck to go with his golden duck from the first match. On that occasion, England hit the highest-ever score in a one-day international — 498-4 — after being put into bat, with three batters scoring centuries to set up a victory by 232 runs.

Rishabh is very big and integral part of our plan in next few months: Dravid

India head coach Rahul Dravid on Sunday made it clear that the under-fire Rishabh Pant is a “big” and “integral” part of the set-up heading into the T20 World Cup in Australia. Pant, who led the side in the five-match series against South Africa that ended in a 2-2 draw after the last game was called off due to rain, managed only 58 runs in the five innings that led to some questions being raised about his place in the shortest format. However, Dravid was very clear that Pant is going nowhere. “Personally, he would have liked to score a few more runs but it is not concerning him. Certainly, he is a very big part of our plans going ahead in next few months,” Dravid said during the post-match press conference.Best of Express PremiumPremiumPremiumPremiumPremium He was categorical that he w...
