New Zealand limps to 168-5 and 137-run lead against England

England strangled New Zealand’s top order through pace and spin in the second innings to stay in the ascendency three days into the third test at Headingley on Saturday. New Zealand was 168-5 for an overall lead of 137 runs when rain brought an early closure with 17.1 overs remaining in the day. Jamie Overton missed out on a dream hundred in his debut test but Jonny Bairstow’s masterful 162 gave England a slender first-innings lead of 31 runs when it was all out for 360 just before lunch. Tom Latham (76) and captain Kane Williamson (48) raised New Zealand hopes of setting a big target in the last test of a compelling series until England hit back with four wickets in the last session — claiming the last three for only nine runs. Four wickets in the final session 💪 New Zealand 168-5 at ...

India vs Leicestershire: Kohli gets into groove with a watchful fifty

Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah averted each other’s gaze. Kohli turned towards the square-leg umpire and practised a forward defensive; Bumrah strode back to the top of his run-up. As if nothing had happened. Seconds ago, Kohli had upper-punched than upper cut. Bumrah for a six over the point boundary. The ball was on the shorter side of the back-of-length band, just outside the off-stump. Kohli arched back, opened up his left-shoulder and punched him aerially.

England strike late to seize control of 3rd Test | Cricket News – Times of India

LEEDS (England): England's bowlers struck three times in quick succession late on day three to take control of the final Test against New Zealand at Headingley on Saturday and stay on course for a 3-0 series sweep. The tourists were on 168-5 and led England by 137 runs when rain brought a premature halt to the day's play.

Devon Conway (11) was soon to follow, succumbing to Joe Root's part-time off-spin before England landed the big scalp of opposition skipper Kane Williamson, who perished for 48 after edging behind to Matthew Potts (2-20).

MP show how to get one hand on Ranji Trophy: Bat over 177 overs and bowl smartly wide outside off

Mumbai may have had a tiny window of opportunity when they reduced Madhya Pradesh to 430 for 6 – a lead of 56 for MP – on the fourth morning of the Ranji Trophy final at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
