Storm over dropped catch will make Arshdeep stronger, say parents who watched game at Dubai stadium

FAST BOWLER Arshdeep Singh’s father Darshan Singh, a former Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) Inspector with 25 years of service behind him, watched from the stands of the Dubai International Stadium as the Asia Cup game against Pakistan slipped away from India — and his son was made the scapegoat for the defeat. Sunday’s Super 4 game was the first time that Darshan and his wife Baljeet Kaur watched their son play for the country from a stadium. But after Arshdeep dropped Pakistan’s Asif Ali in a tense chase, he faced a barrage of criticism on social media with an unidentified user even editing the player’s Wikipedia page to add references to “Khalistan”. “As a parent, it feels really bad. He is only 23. I don’t want to say much about trolls. You can’t shut everyone’s mouth. With...

“What message does he [Kohli] want? Encouragement? After quitting captaincy, what encouragement do you want?” Sunil Gavaskar has a counter-question for Virat Kohli, who had said only Dhoni had texted him after he quit captaincy

A day after Virat Kohli said the only cricketer who played with him to message him after he quit captaincy was MS Dhoni and former player(s) should have offered to help him directly instead of telling it to the world on television, Sunil Gavaskar has a few questions of his own for Kohli. “What message does he want? Was it encouragement? After quitting captaincy, what encouragement do you want?” Gavaskar said on Aaj Tak. But first, for context, this is what Kohli said: When I left Test captaincy, I got a message from only one person, with whom I had played previously; that was MS Dhoni. Many people have my number. On TV, people give lots of suggestions, and people have a lot to say. But none of the people who had my number sent me a message.” Gavaskar wanted to know what specific messa...

Inconsistent mavericks: Dangerous Lankans, full of individual talent, can upset Indian applecart if it’s their day

After their victory against Afghanistan in the Super Four game, Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka summed up his team’s performance: “We are a bit of an unpredictable team. We don’t know which Sri Lanka team would turn up.” Though he said this in half-jest, he precisely captured how the team has performed in this edition of the Asia Cup. At times, they have ranged from sloppy to comical — spilling catches, letting boundaries through their legs, capitulating meekly, bowling profligately. At other times, their performances have fluctuated between resilient and spirited, though never scaling the exceptional heights some of their predecessors in a distant halcyon past have — some of their batsmen have played blinding strokes, some of the bowlers have displayed their unquestionable potential.

Pakistan bowling coach Shaun Tait outlines game changing moment during IND vs PAK Super 4 encounter

Pakistan bowling coach Shaun Tait reserved special praise for seamer Haris Rauf and said that his last over was the crucial moment in the match between India and Pakistan in Dubai on Sunday. Rauf, who started the over with a wide, made a great comeback by bowling three dot balls to Virat Kohli. “Haris Rauf’s last over for me, putting aside the misfield and the drop catch. He has been working so hard on his yorkers and slower balls like the other guys have. And his execution in the last over was perfect last night. Potentially, that was match-winning,” Tait was quoted as saying in a video posted by Pakistan Cricket Board. Tait, the former Australian right-arm fast bowler, praised Rauf for putting a lot of hard work in the nets to hone his prowess and also discussed the mood in the Pakist...

Neymar and I have a good relationship, insists Kylian Mbappe | Football News – Times of India

PARIS: Kylian Mbappe and Neymar have enjoyed a prolific start to Paris St Germain's new Ligue 1 season and even though they squabbled over who should take penalties, the France forward insisted they had a good relationship. PSG take on Juventus in their opening Champions League game on Tuesday with the duo having scored seven goals each on the domestic front while Lionel Messi has provided six assists. Neymar and Mbappe argued over who should take a penalty against Montpellier last month after the Frenchman had missed a spot kick earlier. The Brazilian took it and converted it as PSG won 5-2, before taking it out on Mbappe on social media. "Our relationship has always been like this. There are moments when it's a bit cold, other moments when it's warmer. Sometimes we're like best friend...

Virat Kohli should name player and share what message he was expecting after quitting captaincy: Sunil Gavaskar | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Virat Kohli should name the player he was expecting a call from after quitting Test captaincy and also specify the kind of message he was waiting for, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar said on Monday. Kohli, who top scored with 60 in India's five-wicket defeat at the hands of Pakistan in an Asia Cup match on Sunday, said that barring former skipper MS Dhoni, none of the former players called him. "One thing I can tell you is when I gave up Test captaincy, I got a message from only one person who I've played with before -- MS Dhoni," Kohli said after the match. "A lot of people have my number and a lot of people give suggestions on TV, but among people who have my number, I didn't get a message from anyone else," he had said. When Gavaskar was asked about Virat's grievance, ...

Rafael Nadal, Carlos Alcaraz, or Casper Ruud: Who will be No. 1 after the US Open?

Daniil Medvedev’s fourth-round defeat to Nick Kyrgios not only ended his title defence earlier than expected, but the Russian will also be losing his place at the top of the world rankings. Dropping 1,820 points from the US Open, he has now paved the way for one of three players – Rafael Nadal, Casper Ruud, and Carlos Alcaraz – to usurp him at the top. The following are the scenarios that must take place for any of the three to be World No. 1 after the final in New York. Nadal in pole position All things considered, reaching the World No. 1 mark is going to be the last thing on Nadal’s mind.

Wasim Akram, Ravi Shastri, Gautam Gambhir question Pant’s shot selection against Pakistan

Former cricketers Ravi Shastri, Wasim Akram and Gautam Gambhir have criticised Rishabh Pant for his poor shot selection during India’s five-wicket loss to Pakistan in the Asia Cup. Pant was dismissed off a googly by Shadab Khan, as he tried a reverse sweep, an attempt that experts found to be trifle indiscreet. The wicketkeeper-batter was premeditative and the execution was poor as the ball went straight into the hands of Asif Ali at backward point, resulting in his dismissal at a crucial juncture. “Rishabh Pant will be disappointed because that’s not his shot. His shot is probably hit it over long-on or deep mid-wicket, you end up hitting over there and get out, absolutely you can take it because that’s your strength. Your strength is not reverse-sweeping,” Gambhir told Star Sports. In...

Australian tennis great Margaret Court says admiration of Serena Williams not reciprocated | Tennis News – Times of India

LONDON: Australian tennis great Margaret Court says her admiration for Serena Williams is not reciprocated after the American retired just one major short of equalling her all-time record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles. Williams was widely hailed as the greatest player ever after she bowed out of the sport following defeat to Australia's Ajla Tomljanovic in the third round of the US Open on Friday. But the 40-year-old ends her career with 23 majors, one behind Court, who holds the overall record for men and women. "Serena, I've admired her as a player," Court told Britain's Daily Telegraph in a rare interview. "But I don't think she has ever admired me." The 80-year-old, who works as a church pastor in Perth, has become a divisive figure in tennis over her remarks on race and homosexua...

‘I don’t understand what style of cricket India wants to play’: Shoaib Akhtar after PAK beat IND in Asia Cup 2022

Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar expressed disappointment with India’s team selection against Pakistan on Sunday.  Since Ravindra Jadeja and Avesh Khan were left out due to injury, India had to make a couple of changes as they included Hardik Pandya in place of Dinesh Karthik and Deepak Hooda replaced Avesh Khan. “I had told the Indians and many of my friends not to be so happy. Pakistan will make a very strong comeback and they will ruthlessly beat India. But India should not lose its heart. They need to decide what is the final XI that they would pick. Who is your future?
