Nadal overcomes third set wobble to reach second round

Rafael Nadal made a stuttering but rousing return to the grass on Tuesday, beating 41st-ranked Argentine Francisco Cerundolo 6-4 6-3 3-6 6-4 in Wimbledon’s first round to begin his campaign for a third Grand Slam title of the year. The 36-year-old second seed, who has not played at Wimbledon since 2019 and stayed away from warm-up tournaments with a chronic foot problem, looked to be motoring through the match until a series of unforced errors allowed Cerundolo back in. “It is not a surface that we play very often, especially in my case in the last three years I didn’t put any foot on the grass,” Nadal told the Centre Court crowd. “Every day is a test and I am at the beginning of the tournament and the difficult circumstances (under which) I arrived here.” Delightfully deft from @Rafae...

Ireland give mighty scare to India but lose after winning hearts

It came to 17 runs from the final over and the choice in front of Hardik Pandya was to either bowl himself, give Axar Patel a go, or have the young Umran Malik. Unfortunately, or so it seemed initially, for Ireland, the wrong batsman was at strike. Not the rampaging George Dockrell whose blitz had almost brought India to their knees, but the lower-order batsman Mark Adair. Two dot balls came as Malik produced two pacy length deliveries but then that second dot was a no-ball. Adair then smashed two successive boundaries – a scythe through point, and the good-old outer edge, and took a single to bring Dockrell on strike. With 7 from 2, with the game on the line, Malik produced his best ball of the match, a screaming yorker that just missed the stumps and they ran over for a bye. Adair cou...

India vs Ireland, 2nd T20I: Deepak Hooda’s maiden century helps India beat Ireland by 4 runs to pocket series 2-0 | Cricket News – Times of India

MALAHIDE (Ireland): Deepak Hooda hit a master-class maiden century as India survived a mighty scare before defeating Ireland by four runs in a nail-biting high-scoring second T20 International to sweep the two-match series on Tuesday. Hooda scored 104 off 57 balls to become only the fourth Indian to hit a T20 International ton, while Sanju Samson contributed 77 off 42 balls to power India to a mammoth 225 for seven after opting to bat. As it happened | ScorecardIreland took the chase to the last over with skipper Andy Balbirnie (60 off 37), Paul Stirling (40 off 18), Harry Tector (39 off 28) and George Dockrell (34 not out off 16) shining bright but they eventually fell short as rookie India pacer Umran Malik defended 17 runs in the final over.

England keen to keep attacking

During India’s tour of Australia in 2018-19, when Cheteshwar Pujara had faced 1,258 balls for his 521 runs in four Tests to become the cornerstone of India’s first-ever series win Down Under, he made even a new-age cricketer like Shubman Gill fall in love with obdurate batting. Rishabh Pant, who is already quite successful in Test cricket, offers the other extreme, through the irreverence of youth that at times makes him audacious enough to reverse-lap even James Anderson. Test cricket has always revelled in the juxtaposition of obduracy and flair. But maybe, in its next phase of evolution, Bazball-induced, a new template is appearing. Eoin Morgan’s England gave world cricket a new template in white-ball cricket, as relentless aggression replaced the old order – keeping wickets in hand ...

Contemporaries mourn World Cup winner Varinder’s demise

One of the best right-halves of the 1970s, Varinder Singh breathed his last in Jalandhar on Tuesday. Singh, 75, was a gold medallist at the 1975 Kuala Lumpur Hockey World Cup and won bronze at the 1972 Munich Olympics. He was also a member of the 1973 World Cup team that won silver. Varinder was born on May 16, 1947 in village Dhannowali near Jalandhar and Ajitpal Singh, captain of the World Cup winning side, recalled his association with the deceased. “When Varinder came to the Indian hockey team, he was my room-mate till our last tournament together. He was the gentle giant of the World Cup winning team and the most disciplined and honest hockey player of his time,” Ajitpal said. Varinder played as a right-in early in career, and was recruited by Indian Railways in the late 1960s. “On...

ST. JOHN'S (Antigua and Barbuda): Left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie was called up Tuesday by the West Indies for next month's one-day internationals against Bangladesh, while fast bowler Obed McCoy returns to the T20 squad after injury.

Former champion Halep makes winning return to Wimbledon

Former world number one Simona Halep returned to Wimbledon for the first time since winning the 2019 title and picked up exactly where she left off with an impressive 6-3 6-2 win over dangerous Czech Karolina Muchova on Tuesday. The cancellation of the tournament in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic and a calf injury last year meant the 30-year-old Romanian never got to defend the Venus Rosewater Dish. But against Muchova, a player whose 81st ranking belies her quality, she looked in the mood to reclaim it.

NEW DELHI: Race walker Bhawna Jat has withdrawn from the World Athletics Championships in USA next month, while veteran discus thrower Seema Punia also could miss the showpiece even as some Indians are set to make the cut through world ranking quota.

Wimbledon: Kyrgios edges past British wildcard Jubb in five sets | Tennis News – Times of India

LONDON: Feisty Australian Nick Kyrgios came through a five-set first-round Wimbledon thriller against British wildcard Paul Jubb on Tuesday as his fearsome serve, including 30 aces, eventually overpowered the 22-year-old 3-6 6-1 7-5 6-7(3) 7-5. It was an unexpectedly testing examination for Kyrgios as the British outsider kept his cool in the face of the Australian's usual verbal antics, but fell just short. "It was tough, he had nothing to lose and he played exceptional tennis at times," Kyrgios said. "He's going to be a good player for sure, I'm just happy to get through. "Playing here is a lot of fun. I talk a lot on the court but off the court I'm not too bad." Kyrgios looked pretty flat in losing the opening set to a player whose career highlight was winning the U.S. NCAA college...

Would like to see Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur as third and fourth pacers for England Test: Ajit Agarkar | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Former Indian pacer Ajit Agarkar said he would prefer Mohammed Siraj and Shardul Thakur as the team's third and the fourth pacers respectively when India take on England in the rescheduled fifth and final Test beginning in Edgbaston on Friday. With Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami a certainty in the playing XI, India has other pace options in Siraj, Prasidh Krishna, Shardul Thakur and Umesh Yadav to choose from. "Siraj had a really good series last year when India played those four Tests (against England) and he is one of most improved bowlers around at the moment. So I don't see any reason why Siraj would miss out," Agarkar said during an interaction, organised by Sony Sports, the official broadcaster of the rescheduled test match.

Wimbledon courts chief has global vision for tennis on grass | Tennis News – Times of India

LONDON: Wimbledon head of courts Neil Stubley is on a mission to champion grass-court tennis around the world by harnessing modern technology to recreate the unique conditions of the All England Club. Players only get the chance to compete on the surface for a few weeks each year, with clay and hard-court tournaments dominating international tours. But Stubley, whose role is to keep the lush turf of Wimbledon in tip-top shape, is involved in trials in Britain and Australia using synthetic fibres alongside grass to improve court surfaces. "One of the biggest challenges for grass tennis is that you need quite a heavy clay soil because what you need to do is be able to dry it out and get the ball bounce," he said. "In the UK we've naturally got quite a lot of clay soil within our soil ma...

Eoin Morgan: England’s Eoin Morgan says it’s ‘right time to go’ as he retires from internationals | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: England's World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan retired from international cricket with immediate effect on Tuesday, saying now was the "right time" to stand down. Morgan led England to victory at the 2019 World Cup -- their first major global 50-overs title -- and took them to the top of the one-day and Twenty20 rankings. But the 35-year-old batsman has been struggling with form and fitness issues this year. Dublin-born Morgan was twice out for nought during the recent ODI series in the Netherlands and withdrew from the third game with a groin issue. Morgan is England's all-time leading run-scorer in ODI and T20 cricket with 6,957 and 2,458 runs respectively. His tally of 225 ODI appearances and 115 in T20Is are also England records. But Morgan, who will continue his domestic c...
