Sri Lanka’s collectivism beats experimental India

After lunging full-throttle onto the crease, whipping up a plume of dust, Dasun Shanaka scrambled back on his feet, and furiously punched his fists in the air. Shortly, his partner Bhanuka Rajapaksa, who had made a full-stretch dive himself at the other end to complete the double that put Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup final, past India by six wickets, leapt onto him. In a twinkling second, their teammates piled over them.

Asia Cup 2022: India still in it, but only just

Asia Cup 2022 Scenario: India’s second defeat in three days in the Super Four stage has not exactly eliminated them from the Asia Cup, but left them precariously dependent on results of matches not involving them. Needless to say, they need to beat Afghanistan on Thursday, that too by as convincing a margin as possible. But the result of that match could very well be of only academic interest as far as qualification for Sunday’s final is concerned as India could well be out of the reckoning before taking the field. That’s because Pakistan face Afghanistan in Sharjah on Wednesday, and a win for Babar Azam’s team will put them out of India’s reach. For that reason, Rohit Sharma & Co will be supporting the underdogs in that contest. With Sri Lanka already with two Super Four wins, that...

Two seamers plus Hardik Pandya was deliberate plan to try ahead of World Cup, says Rohit Sharma

In T20, teams with more bowling options have tended to do better. India went with just two regular seamers plus Hardik Pandya in the last two games against Pakistan and Sri Lanka. And two spinners. India’s captain Rohit Sharma says he deliberately went in with this combination as he wanted to assess how the team faces the challenges and learn from it ahead of the world cup. “ I wanted to try this combination of three seamers and two spinners- what happens. We are still looking for answers,” Rohit Sharma said in the post-match ceremony after India lost to Sri Lanka. “Ideal combination is to have four seamers. But you also want to try out with three seamers – what happens. I want to be prepared for the world cup. Where you are challenged as a team. When you go to the world cup, you want t...

On a slow pitch, Rohit Sharma sparkles but his team-mates struggle

Rohit Sharma seemed soundproof to the applause when he was walking back to the pavilion. Eyes down, shoulders arched, he dragged his heat-weary limbs, not even reciprocating a thud on his shoulder by the incoming Hardik Pandya, he walked, as if he was in a world of his own. For nearly 70 minutes and 41 balls, he was batting in a world of his own. When his colleagues scratched and scraped on a slowish surface Rohit purred along. He made the same pitch feel like sprawling, six-lane highway without potholes. Or put it the other way, Rohit could spin his Ferrari even on a paddy-field. His 72 runs were stroked at a strike rate of 175; none of his teammates who faced more than 10 balls, could manage a hitting rate of more than 130. His lack of runs in the Indian Premier League and the T20 W...

Asia Cup 2022: India miss again, lose close game to Sri Lanka

“Bad shot to be honest,” Gautam Gambhir would say on air and it pretty much sums up Virat Kohli’s dismissal. “He went too across instead of straighter,” Gambhir would add. Trying to ride on his new dalliance with an aggressive approach from the start of his innings, Kohli went for a shot that he usually doesn’t play: the swipe across the line. Normally, when he wants to hit a length ball from a seamer in that direction, he would chose his signature swat-flick. The ball from the left-handed Dilshan Madhushanka landed on a length on the middle-stump line and uprooted the middle stump, as Kohli failed to connect. Even when well-settled, this is a shot that he usually doesn’t play and it’s not a surprise that he couldn’t make contact. -Sriram Veera Theekshana’s inswinger from hell For a whi...

England women name squad for T20I series against India | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: Pacer Lauren Bell earned her maiden call-up as England named a 14-member women's team for the T20 International series against India, which gets underway in Durham on Saturday. The 21-year-old Bell comes into the squad in place of the 37-year-old Katherine Brunt, who has been rested from the series. Brunt is England's leading T20 wicket-taker.

England Women head coach Lisa Keightley, who will be taking charge of her last series before returning home to Australia, said: "I'm excited about finishing my time with this team with a really exciting series against India.

A series within a tournament, a grand opera with supporting acts

Having an India-Pakistan encounter a couple of times before the final means that a tournament is guaranteed a couple of peaks, and no matter the troughs Having an India-Pakistan encounter a couple of times before the final means that a tournament is guaranteed a couple of peaks, and no matter the troughs It’s not difficult to imagine that cricket’s multi-team tournaments exist simply to enable India and Pakistan to play a mini-series within these. The 50-over and T20 World Cups, Asia Cup, Champions Trophy are about India playing Pakistan, and then some teams playing some other teams. Exaggeration? Perhaps.At the 50-over World Cup in 2007, India and Pakistan, placed in separate groups, failed to qualify for the Super Eight league. Television in particular and the administrators in gene...

From shooters – who will get their first shot at the 2024 Paris Games berth – to the weightlifters, aiming to stay injury-free before their Olympic qualification cycle begins in December, to the wrestlers, whose hectic season was scheduled to end later this month after the World Championships – each of India’s top athletes will have to rejig their schedules after the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) made it mandatory for them to compete in this month’s National Games in Gujarat.

‘Tottenham have been penalised’: Conte fumes over heavy fixture schedule | Football News – Times of India

LONDON: Tottenham Hotspur have been penalised with a hectic schedule compared with other teams and must speak to the Premier League to ease their burden and avoid often playing three times in a week, manager Antonio Conte said on Tuesday.
