Kohli luckless but looked good, rest of top order shaky against masterful Anderson and spirited Potts

As the barrel-chested Matthew Potts barged into his teammates in joy after terminating Virat Kohli, the former India skipper stared helplessly at Rishabh Pant, the non-striker, before he flashed a wry smile into the distance. As though fate was conspiring against his resurrection. Kohli felt luckless, for he exuded more confidence than most of his top-five colleagues. He was leaving well—until that moment of indiscretion—blocking stoutly, disciplined outside the off-stump and looking like the 2018 vintage. But his split-second dilemma to shoulder arms or not ended in a benign ball well outside off ricocheting from the underside of the bat onto his stumps. But Potts’s bounce was troubling him—he had him nearly chopped on. This wrecker-ball did not bounce as much, and Kohli was a trifle...

It’s Dhoni, it’s Gilchrist, no it’s Rishabh Pant

Under the gloomy Edgbaston skies, Rishabh Pant made another leap into greatness. He cracked 146 off 111 balls in a staggering exhibition of counterpunching to make the first day of the series-decider undoubtedly India’s. For much of the day, the match was under the iron clutches of England. After old-stager James Anderson and fledgling Matthew Potts had struck in unison to plunge India to 98/5, Pant and Ravindra Jadeja combined to add 222 runs to not only fish India out of danger but put them in the ascendancy. When the pair parted, India had galloped to 320 runs. It’s beginning to be a recurring theme — the team in shambles, series on the line, bowlers with their tails up and then walks in a short, slightly stout cheerful young man, who without any evident ounce of strain, without any ...

BIRMINGHAM: Rishabh Pant played a knock for the ages to turn the tables on England and take India to an imposing 338 for seven on a rain-hit day one of the rescheduled fifth Test here on Friday. At 98 for five, India were staring down the barrel but Pant (146 off 111 balls) scripted a remarkable turnaround in the company of Ravindra Jadeja (83 batting off 163) as the duo shared a match changing 222-run stand off 239 balls. Pant, who rendered the England bowlers helpless, hammered 20 boundaries and four sixes, in his awe-inspiring effort.

Why Chopra may not have to throw 90metres to finish on the podium at World Championships

If Neeraj Chopra is getting tired of the 90-metre question, the genial javelin thrower isn’t showing it. 88.06 metres, a then national record, at the Jakarta Asian Games four years ago had first raised hopes of Chopra achieving what is widely considered a gold standard distance in the javelin throw. Recently he came within centimetres of joining an elite club when he broke the national record twice; 89.30 metres in Turku just over two weeks ago and 89.94m on Thursday night in Stockholm. After the Diamond League at the Swedish capital, Chopra spoke about being keen to get past the barrier when Grenada’s Anderson Peters produced 90.31m in the third round to push Chopra to second place. Chopra tried but the fusion of a perfect technique and a willing body didn’t materialise. “When Anderson...

Who is Tim Van Rijthoven? Novak Djokovic’s Wimbledon R4 opponent who was winless on tour until last month

Tim Van Rijthoven was not supposed to be at Wimbledon. Until three weeks ago, according to every conceivable metric used to judge elite-level tennis, the 25-year-old was nowhere near the sport’s oldest and grandest stage. He had never won a senior ATP Tour-level match, and his solitary appearance was a first-round loss at the ATP 250 event in Winston Salem back in 2016: the result of a Lucky Loser entry to the main draw thanks to a last-minute withdrawal. Van Rijthoven, the biggest underdog story of the Championships this year, will now take on three-time defending champion and arguably the greatest player of all time, Novak Djokovic, in the fourth round at SW19 on Sunday. He was handed a last-minute wildcard to the main draw after his heroics at the Libema Open last month, where he wen...

ECB official suspended due to Devon Malcolm racist slur: Reports | Cricket News – Times of India

Devon Malcolm.

Both the Daily Telegraph and The Times said Friday the unnamed person, who has worked at English cricket's governing body for several years, allegedly made a remark earlier this season about being unable to see Malcolm until the 59-year-old Jamaica-born quick smiles.

Friday's reports, however, are a further blow to the English game, which has been trying to repair its tarnished image following Azeem Rafiq's allegations of racism during his time playing ...

FIFA to use new high-tech for offside calls at World Cup

FIFA will introduce new technology to improve offside calls at the World Cup in Qatar this year, using a limb-tracking camera system. FIFA said on Friday it is ready to launch semi-automated offside technology (SAOT) that uses multiple cameras to track player movements plus a sensor in the ball — and will quickly show 3D images on stadium screens at the tournament to help fans understand the referee’s call. It’s the third World Cup in a row that sees FIFA introduce new technology to help referees. Goal-line technology was ready for the 2014 tournament in Brazil after a notorious refereeing error in 2010. In 2018, video review to help referees judge game-changing incidents was rolled out in Russia. The new offside system promises faster and more accurate decisions than are currently made...
