Inflated travel rates, few rooms: Ahead of Qatar kickoff, football fans’ options limited

Football fans have a reputation of going to extreme lengths to support their teams. But, even by their standards, planning travel for this year’s World Cup in Qatar has turned out to be an unprecedented adventure. Flight rates that are two or three times more than usual, hotel rooms that can run into hundreds of dollars per night, and the prospect of making the UAE their base to make trips to-and-fro between the two countries for matches — what has been projected as the “most accessible” World Cup is turning into a logistical nightmare for fans. Qatar’s unique appeal as a host nation — all eight stadiums are situated in and around Doha, the capital, within an hour of travel — has contributed to the sale of 1.8 million tickets as of June 29, with the final sales period commencing on July...

Harmony Tan: World No. 115 who defeated Serena Williams is keeping her Wimbledon dream alive

Harmony Tan’s 2022 season was exceptionally ordinary until last month. She had been on the outside of the top 100 of the WTA rankings looking, played a handful of tour-level main draws, and had not made the quarterfinal of a single event she played. And then, after receiving one of the unluckiest draws of the year, she has made the second week of a Major for the first time in her career. Tan’s name was a part of headlines all over the world after she was drawn against Serena Williams in the first round at Wimbledon this year. Williams returned to Wimbledon after an injury-ridden goodbye last year, with speculation active that this may be her last appearance at SW19. When Tan found out she was playing the 23-time Grand Slam winner, she was hoping to win a few games. “When I saw the draw,...

5th Test, Day 2 – ‘Captain Bumrah’ rattles England: Smashes Brian Lara’s world record with bat, wreaks havoc with ball | Cricket News – Times of India

BIRMINGHAM: Skipper Jasprit Bumrah held sway with a mesmerizing all-round performance, which included a world record feat with the bat and an incisive spell with the ball as India seized complete control from England on a rain-hit second day of the rescheduled fifth Test here on Saturday. Such was the power of Bumrah's all-round show (31 off 16 balls and 3/35) in his first appearance as India captain that it easily overshadowed Ravindra Jadeja's superbly constructed third Test hundred that took India to a commanding first innings score of 416.

Jasprit Bumrah: Right arm fast and awesome

Jasprit Bumrah: Right Arm Fast. The categorisation is oversimplifying Bumrah. He is many in one—a versatile new-ball merchant; an old-ball virtuoso, a seam artiste; supreme length-manipulator, an all-format freak of nature, a talisman and a matchwinner, an icon and an entertainer. On Saturday, he was all, more than all, and pure theatre too. There are many reasons spectators flock to watch him in flesh or turn on the television when he is winding up that unique action of his. Apart from the sense of achievement that will grow with the years in just having been there the day that Bumrah did that, a desperation almost to be part of him in some tiny way, Bumrah brings something for everyone. For the masses, he gifts the visceral thrill of a supersonic fast bowler splaying stumps and blast...

Jasprit Bumrah’s pull in Stuart Broad record over evokes memories of Kapil Dev’s Nataraja

The most breathtaking shot from Jasprit Bumrah in the over of mayhem, in which he looted 29 of the 35 runs against Stuart Broad to break the world record for most runs in a single over in a Test, was a marvellous pull. The front leg swivelled up in the air, and it brought memories of three glorious pulls, somewhat similar. The soul of the shots was the flamboyant upward thrust of the front leg and the individuality comes through in what transpires next. We also look at the vastly contrasting version of Sachin Tendulkar’s. Kapil Dev’s Nataraja shot The takeaway from Kapil’s signature shot wasn’t a sense of brutality but of something wildly beautiful. There wasn’t violence in it, like most pull shots can often have. No wonder The Hindu’s R Mohan instinctively sensed something classical in...

Former champion Simona Halep thumps Magdalena Frech to reach Wimbledon fourth round | Tennis News – Times of India

LONDON: Former Wimbledon champion Simona Halep soared into the fourth round of the Championships on Saturday with a commanding 6-4, 6-1 victory over Poland's Magdalena Frech. The 30-year-old Romanian, who returned to the All England Club this year for the first time since winning the grasscourt major in 2019, came into match having beaten Frech in both their previous meetings. Despite a stiff breeze blowing across Court two, Halep started in aggressive fashion to build up a 4-0 lead and although the 92nd-ranked Frech managed to get a break of serve back, it was not enough to stop her opponent from winning the first set. Playing her maiden third-round match at a major, Frech also cancelled out an early break at the start of the second set but Halep regained the lead immediately and celeb...

SILVERSTONE (United Kingdom): Carlos Sainz grabbed his maiden pole position on Saturday when he outpaced world champion Max Verstappen, who survived a spin in an exciting rain-hit qualifying for the British Grand Prix.

Coco Gauff suffers earliest Wimbledon exit after defeat by Amanda Anisimova | Tennis News – Times of India

LONDON: Coco Gauff's Wimbledon challenge came unstuck in the third round on Saturday when she was beaten by familiar foe Amanda Anisimova 6-7(4), 6-2, 6-1 in an all-American showdown. The two Florida-based players had made their way through the junior ranks at the same time, with Anisimova thrashing Gauff to win the U.S. Open junior title in 2017. Hence when the duo walked on to Centre Court on the sixth day of these championships, they were already all too familiar with each other's strengths and weaknesses. Yet during the opening exchanges, 11th seed Gauff threatened to wallop Anisimova as she had two break points to go 4-0 up. An error from the 18-year-old Gauff and a smash from her opponent kept 20th seed Anisimova alive in that game. From then on, Anisimova began to work her way ba...

Rock-solid De Minaur beats British wildcard Broady to reach Wimbledon last 16 | Tennis News – Times of India

Alex De Minaur. (AP Photo)LONDON: Alex De Minaur proved rock solid as he ended British wildcard Liam Broady's Wimbledon run in the third round on Saturday, winning 6-3, 6-4, 7-5 to reach the last 16 for the first time. For the second match in succession, the 23-year-old was up against a British left-hander, and as against Jack Draper the 19th seed gave a masterclass of precision hitting. Broady, playing in the third round of a Grand Slam for the first time after knocking out seeded Argentine Diego Schwartzman in five sets, threw everything in his arsenal at De Minaur. But finding a way past one of the quickest players in men's tennis was exhausting with De Minaur picking up balls that he had no right to get back.

‘Yuvi hai ya Bumrah’: Twitter goes ballistic as Bumrah goes big in a 35-run Broad over

“Just when you think you’ve seen it all, this game surprises you even more,” wrote Ravi Shastri. Indian captain Jasprit Bumrah tempted him to with his swashbuckling batting in Stuart Broad’s over that cost 35 runs, the most expensive in Test cricket history. Bumrah had come in to bat in the 80th over of the India innings with just two wickets remaining. Two overs later, when Anderson dismissed Jadeja who had just scored a hundred, Bumrah took the initiative of going all out. And he found the opportunity to do so in the next over as Stuart Broad misjudged the India no. 10, bowling him wide and short.

Jasprit Bumrah hits 29 as Stuart Broad concedes world record 35 runs in single over

In the ongoing 5th Test between India and England, England speedster Stuart Broad created an unwanted world record when he conceded 35 runs in an over as Indian skipper Jasprit Bumrah thrashed him all around the park. Broad had conceded 6 sixes in an over to Yuvraj Singh in the T20 format back in 2007 but he might not have expected the same treatment here at Edgbaston. Bumrah smashed two sixes and four fours to amass 29 runs with 6 runs added as extras and created a world record for scoring the most runs in an over in Test cricket. Before Bumrah’s masterclass, 28 runs were the most conceded in an over in Test cricket with Robin Peterson, Joe Root and James Anderson sharing the dubious honour. Time to relive that special over once again 💪 Boom Boom Bumrah indeed 💥#ENGvINDpic.twitter.com...

CAB grants NOC to Wriddhiman Saha, “will hold no grudge against establishment”, says veteran keeper | Cricket News – Times of India

KOLKATA: Veteran India discard Wriddhiman Saha on Saturday was granted the NOC (No Objection Certificate) by Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), bringing down curtains to his 15-year association under acrimonious circumstances. A veteran of 40 Tests, Saha who will turn 38 in October, was categorically told by Indian team management earlier this year, that they don't want an aged second wicketkeeper in the set-up. Since then, Saha has been critical of BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and also at the beginning, didn't have charitable things to say about head coach Dravid either. "Mr Wriddhiman Saha came to CAB and in an application to President Avishek Dalmiya sought the NOC from the association," the CAB stated. "CAB gave concurrence to the request of Mr Saha and provided the NOC to him fo...
