Pandya’s last-over six lifts India to victory in thriller against Pak

INDIA WERE within touching distance, requiring just seven runs off five balls. But nerves could still jangle, and it nearly did, as they eked out only one run off two balls. The old-timers could sense a Javed Miandad-Chetan Sharma moment. But Hardik Pandya did not leave it too late. He swung the fourth ball over long-on to wrap up a famous win, one that could eliminate bitter memories of the last time they played Pakistan here, in the World Cup 10 months ago that ended in a galling defeat. Later, captain Rohit Sharma said that at no point in the game did they surrender hope. “That’s the kind of belief we want to have in this group, where you are not in the game and you still manage to pull it off. We want to make sure they have all been given enough clarity around what to do in the midd...

“This Indian team is more secure than any team I’ve played for. Credit goes to the management and captain.” Hardik Pandya

Just after the toss, Hardik Pandya would say that this team was the “most secure than any other team” he has played in. “I have been in and out of the team but they [my team-mates] respect and value me. That helps me perform better. A lot of credit goes to the management and captain. Because of that this team is more secure than any team I’ve played for,” Pandya told Star Sports.” Hardik Pandya came up with a special all-around effort as India won the match by five wickets against Pakistan on Sunday. Pandya (33 not out off 17) and Ravindra Jadeja (35 off 29) then shared a 52-run stand to take India on the cusp of a famous win. The star all-rounder’s three fours off Haris Rauf off the 19th over effectively sealed the game for India. In the post-match presentation, Hardik Pandya said, “In...

Hardik seals it with a six, India beat Pakistan in Asia Cup

Hardik Pandya knows he is a cool cat. At times, he lets people know it too. He hit the match-winning six, accepted a bow from Dinesh Karthik, looked up at the dressing room and signalled a ‘telephone ring’ kind of wiggle. The same wiggle that Shahnawaz Dahani does after taking wickets though perhaps there was no connection between the two here. As it would happen, Dhani was one of the first player he would bump into after that celebration, and there ensued a sweet moment between the two. Smiles and animated happy faces. But the coolest moment happened after the third ball of the final over. He had just moved outside leg stump and tried to smash it through the off side but couldn’t beat the infield. He then looked across at Karthik, shut his eyes and nodded his head – the Indian way to s...

Asia Cup 2022, India vs Pakistan Highlights: Hardik’s all-round show helps India pull off a scrappy win over Pakistan | Cricket News – Times of India

DUBAI: It’s been 10 months since Shaheen Afridi’s memorable spell of pace and swing dismantled India’s batting in a T20 World Cup game here at the Dubai International stadium. The Indian pace attack literally and figuratively bounced back on Sunday evening to bowl out Pakistan for 147 as the Indian batters scrambled to a thrilling five-wicket win with two balls to spare in the opening match of the Asia Cup. Led by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya, Indian pacers dished out short-pitch stuff right through the innings as first five Pakistan wickets fell to deliveries climbing to the shoulders of the Pakistani batters. Bhuvneshwar’s 4/26 and Hardik’s 3/25 gave Indian batters a relatively modest target to go one-up over Pakistan in this tournament. It came down to Hardik to finish off the...

No Bumrah & Shami, but Bhuvneshwar leads effective short-ball barrage

As Babar Azam walked off, after he was rushed into a pull shot off Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya galloped from mid-on, furiously wagging his index finger, implying that he masterminded the wicket, that it was his suggestion to bounce out the masterful Pakistan captain. Bhuvneshwar, unused to wild celebrations, nodded his head in approval. Babar’s was not the only wicket the short ball from the Indian quartet was to consume as the innings unfolded. The short-pitched balls were to be the kryptonite of the top-five batsmen. Shortly after Babar departed, Fakhar Zaman lashed his bat at a wide short ball off Avesh Khan, only for the extra bounce to defeat his purpose. Then Pandya inflicted triple blows off his short balls to eject Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah and Mohammad Rizwan and crush...

Naseem Shah: The boy who rattled India and almost won the game for Pakistan

On the eve of Naseem Shah’s departure from Pakistan for the Asia Cup, his mentor and son of Abdul Qadir Sulieman Qadir told him, “Ab aapki zindagi ki udaan shuru hue hain. (The time has come now for you to fly high in your life!) These six months, starting from Asia Cup, if you perform for Pakistan, then you will also become a super star like Shaheen Shah.” Nadeem, Sulieman says, promised him he will do his utmost best. “Banega superstar, aap dekhna! ( He will become a superstar, you wait and watch). Naseem took his first steps on his actualising his promise on Sunday in Dubai right away from his first over. KL Rahul hung his bat out at a skidding thunderbolt outside off to drag it back onto his stumps. He then nipped one back in to Virat Kohli before cleverly dangling one full and well...

EPL: Kane gives Spurs 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest | Football News – Times of India

NOTTINGHAM (England): Harry Kane missed a penalty but scored twice to surpass 200 league goals in his career and give Tottenham Hotspur a 2-0 victory at Nottingham Forest that kept up their strong start to the Premier League season. Forest, who have signed 17 players for about 150 million pounds ($176 million) since promotion, made the early running before Spurs' prolific striker silenced the crowd with a low fifth minute strike from inside the penalty area. His scuffed goal, after a superb run and pass by Dejan Kulusevski, was Kane's 200th league goal. But it was to get better in the second half when Kane scored a close-range header from a sumptuous outside-of-the-boot cross by Richarlison in the 81st minute. That was his 187th Premier League goal, adding to nine in the Championship an...

Ruben Neves’ first-half screamer had given Wolves the lead. Newcastle needed Saint-Maximin to produce as Eddie Howe was unable to call on new $70 million signing Alexander Isak, with the Sweden international yet to receive his work permit, while Bruno Guimaraes and Callum Wilson were injured.

EPL: Fornals gets West Ham up and running with winner at Villa | Football News – Times of India

BIRMINGHAM (England): West Ham United opened their Premier League goals and points account for the season as a deflected effort by Pablo Fornals sealed a 1-0 victory at Aston Villa on Sunday. The Spaniard took aim from 25 metres in the 74th minute and his effort looped in after hitting Villa's Ezri Konsa. It was reward for an improved second-half performance by West Ham who offered little before the break. Villa were hardly much better in a turgid first half although they did have the ball in the net early on when Konsa got on the end of a Lucas Digne corner but the ball had rightly been adjudged to have gone out of play. The victory lifted West Ham off the foot of the table into 17th place with three points, the same as Villa. Had they been beaten without scoring West Ham would have be...

IND vs PAK Asia Cup: Dinesh Karthik preferred over Rishabh Pant in Playing XI

The high-octane cricket battle between India and Pakistan started with a mini selection controversy, with Dinesh Karthik edging Rishabh Pant in the Indian playing eleven. Picking 37-year-old Karthik ahead of Pant, 13 years his junior and Indian cricket’s poster boy, ostensibly came from a thought process that the veteran ‘keeper-batsman has been the team management’s preferred choice as a finisher. Also, going ahead, this could be the team combination with an eye to the T20 World Cup, a couple of months down the line. Pant is not a finisher in white-ball cricket, he is a middle-order enforcer, a role that has been bestowed upon Suryakumar Yadav in this Asia Cup fixture. Leaving out Pant surely wasn’t an easy choice, and it didn’t go down well with Gautam Gambhir. “Now is the time when...

Pakistan look for some respite in face of calamitous floods back home

At the intersection on the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road that runs beside the Dubai International Stadium, a group of Pakistan supporters are restlessly waiting for an unheeding policeman in a traditional thawb to let them past the steel barricades. He gestures to them to be patient, shouting “antazir, antazir.” A couple of India supporters in shiny blue jerseys joined the crowd and one of them quipped at the policeman: “Inko kya pata hain cricket ke bare mein (what do they know about cricket)?” A peel of laughter crackled, even drawing a smile on the face of the stern policeman. Turns out that the delay was due to the team buses arriving and they would have to wait for 15 more minutes. As soon as they heard the words team bus, the excitement kicked in and the wait assumed a new meanin...
