Record-breaking Carter a Rahane admirer 

‘I just like how smooth his technique is; hopefully he gets back into the Test team’ ‘I just like how smooth his technique is; hopefully he gets back into the Test team’ Ajinkya Rahane must be looking forward eagerly to the Duleep Trophy starting next week, as he returns to competitive cricket since May. He may be surprised to learn that there is a cricketer from New Zealand who hopes he will make a comeback to the Indian side.That Kiwi batter, Joe Carter, played some shots at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday that Rahane too would have approved of. After his brilliant 197, Carter spoke of his admiration for the Indian veteran of 82 Tests and 90 ODIs.

Carter misses double century; India-A begins well

To the handful of spectators at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday, Joe Carter may have looked like someone desperately trying to get out on the cusp of a maiden double hundred. He succeeded in his second attempt — in as many balls — as he stepped out against Kuldeep Yadav, and got stumped by K.S. Bharat.He was on 197 then. The New Zealand-A batter later revealed that the team had been looking to declare before tea. Superb knock Thanks almost exclusively to his superb knock (197, 305b, 474min, 26x4, 3x6), the visitors made 400 in their first innings on the second day of the first ‘Test’. The next highest score in the innings was 32, by Sean Solia, the other overnight batter. The duo added 87 for the sixth wicket, as they resumed at 156 for five. India-A ended the second day at 156...

Mohammad Rizwan (78, 57b, 6x4, 1x6), Fakhar Zaman (53, 41b, 3x4, 2x6) struck half-centuries and Khushdil Shah played a cameo as Pakistan cruised into the Super 4 of the Asia Cup, beating Hong Kong by 155 runs on Friday.

Rizwan plays patience game as Pak thump Hong Kong by huge margin

Restlessness crept into the stands, as Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Rizwan laboured on in the middle overs. The crowd, sitting just 60 yards from the batsmen, began to belt out: “We want sixes, we want sixes.” Nudged singles and stolen twos were not the brand of cricket they had braved the relentless sun and stifling heat to see, though the wicket was on the lower and slower side, where batsmen struggled to hit through the line or on the up. Then, as though listening to their prayers, sensing the vibe, Rizwan unshackled. The shackling, though, was not self-inflicted. He was wading through a phase wherein he looked not so much out of runs as out of touch. He was struggling for fluency. He could not middle the strokes that he usually middles — the sweeps, the cuts, the hits down the ground, ...

Champions League refs told to punish ‘acts of simulation’

Champions League referees must be tougher with players who exaggerate contact trying to get an opponent shown a yellow card, UEFA said Friday. UEFA wants to punish attempts to “dupe” referees with “acts of simulation or by over-reacting to light-contact fouls” when European club competition groups start next week. “It represents unfair conduct by players against their colleagues — a bad example of disrespectful behavior,” UEFA chief refereeing officer Roberto Rosetti said in a statement. Match officials were urged to be smart and show “fingertip feeling” when handling international games in Europe this season. “It’s crucial for the referees to be able to read the game and understand the spirit of play in these situations,” said Rosetti, an Italian who refereed the 2008 European Champion...

In the shadow of the Peng Shuai controversy, China’s new generation emerges at the US Open

Tennis is a sport of fledgling popularity in China. This past decade, Li Na performed at the highest level, winning the 2011 French Open and 2014 Australian Open and subsequently reaching World No. 2. But the players the country has produced since is proof enough to suggest that Li Na’s success was an outlier, as opposed to an institutional shift. Recently, Chinese tennis has been under the scanner for all the wrong reasons. Peng Shuai, arguably China’s most successful player since Li Na, accused Zhang Gaoli, a high-ranking Chinese official and former Vice-Premier of the country, of coercing her into having sex in a Weibo post last year. The post was taken down later and the Chinese government was accused of censoring her. Subsequently, concern about her well-being spread as she was not...

Ghost of a Match Day Friday at Sharjah 

The Match Day Friday was slumberous in Sharjah. The shops and offices that hug the stadium are shut, a few moustachioed guards are reluctantly tottering with their automatic weapons outside the stadium, a modest structure compared to the stadiums in Dubai or Abu Dhabi, there are no serpentine queues that test the durability of the barricades or a mad rush. Spectators are quietly filing into the stadium, more like students under the supervision of a class teacher during an excursion. The road beside the stadium and the flyover beyond it are largely bare. This was not the Match Day Friday in Sharjah we imagined it to be or watched a hundred times over in the past. This was a ghost; bereft of the old buzz, the friction, the bristle and the halo that made Match Day Friday both feared and lo...
