Madhya Pradesh’s Dubey, an old-school batsman with compact technique and a calm head

In 28 first-class innings since his debut in 2018-19, 23-year-old Yash Dubey had never opened until midway into this Ranji Trophy season. Right before he was promoted to open by coach Chandrakant Pandit in a crucial game against Kerala, Dubey had, in fact, stroked an unbeaten 85 off 92 balls against Meghalaya down at No 7. But Pandit saw something in his compact technique and calm temperament, and Dubey delivered instantly, scoring a massive 289 off 591 balls against Kerala and forming a third-wicket partnership of 277 with Rajat Patidar, who made 142. He couldn’t do much in the quarters and semis but has squeezed Mumbai almost out of the final with 133 off 336 deliveries, spending 111.5 overs in the middle after fielding for 127.4 overs. Despite the Mumbai fielders chirping constantly,...

Warm-up match, Day 2: Rishabh Pant rises in west with his signature attacking batting | Cricket News – Times of India

(Photo credit: @leicsccc Twitter)LEICESTER: Rishabh Pant decided to rise in the west after his woes in the sub-continent, batting in his signature attacking manner to hog the limelight on the second day of the warm-up match between India and Leicestershire here. One among four India players to turn out for the English county side in the practice match meant to help the visitors acclimatise with the conditions, Pant knocked his way to an entertaining 76 off 87 balls at Grace Road. During his 154-minute stay in the middle, Pant entertained the crowd with 14 boundaries and a six. Responding to India's 246 for eight declared after a day of multiple rain interruptions, Leicestershire were primed to take a sizable lead over the tourists when Pant was in his element. But the possibility died d...

India vs Leicestershire: Pant mixes caution with aggression to give a reminder of his batting talent

To his lengthening reel of mind-spinning strokes, those that inhabit a space between the glorious and ridiculous, Rishabh Pant added another in the warm-up game between Indians and Leicestershire. Umesh Yadav had just about veered a full ball onto Pant’s leg-stump. Pant was already on bended knees, premeditating a sweep, or perhaps a scoop. But instead, he flicked the ball for a six over deep square leg from a sweeping posture, his back-knee on the ground and front knee bent, the body swaying a fraction towards his left, leaving both Yadav and the audience agape. These are the strokes that embellish the legend of Pant. Instantly flickers and flashes through your mind the reverse-lapped four over the slip cordon off James Anderson, or the reverse-swept four off Jofra Archer over the gull...

COLOMBO: Wicketkeeper-batsman Alex Carey's unbeaten 45 and inspired bowling helped Australia to a four-wicket consolation win over Sri Lanka in the fifth one-day international on Friday.

Daryl Mitchell: New Zealand’s record-breaker | Cricket News – Times of India

LEEDS (United Kingdom): Daryl Mitchell on Friday broke a 73-year-old record for the most runs by a New Zealand batsman during a Test series against England while making 109 at Headingley. His third hundred of the three-match series took him to 482 runs, 20 more than Martin Donnelly made in 1949. The 31-year-old Mitchell, who could still add to the tally if required to bat in the second innings, became just the fifth New Zealand batsman to score hundreds in three successive Tests. Mitchell hit 108 in the first Test at Lord's and followed up with 190 in the second game at Trent Bridge. But despite his impressive run spree, Test world champions New Zealand lost both matches by five wickets as the home side took an unassailble 2-0 lead. Mitchell's latest century on Friday came off 213 balls...

MP 7 runs away from lead and possibly, from a Ranji Trophy title after Dubey, Shubham tons

Yash Dubey and Shubham Sharma had sailed through much of the morning session on the third day of the Ranji Trophy final in Bengaluru. Both were in the late 70s but Madhya Pradesh were yet to go past 200 and Mumbai’s 374 was a considerable distance away yet. Mumbai had failed to create chances with the morning sun beating down for the first time in the game. However, the off-spinner Tanush Kotian was starting to create a bit of pressure with his angle from round the stumps. Two leg-before shouts off successive balls were turned down against Shubham, who responded with a charge for a lofted straight four in the same over. A couple of overs later, Dubey survived a close lbw shout as well from Kotian, and Mumbai’s frustration came out in a volley of words. Dubey replied with a cover drive f...
