His family, who have been heavily invested in the left arm quick’s progress, deemed his selection as a culmination of a roller coaster ride of emotions, which involves a very recent episode of young Arshdeep being trolled heavily online af...

Arsenal v PSV Eindhoven postponed due to national mourning of Queen

Thursday’s Europa League group game between Arsenal and PSV Eindhoven has been postponed due to the lack of adequate security personnel following the death of Queen Elizabeth, UEFA said on Monday. “This is due to the severe limitations on police resources and organizational issues related to the ongoing events surrounding the national mourning for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,” UEFA said. UEFA added that a new date will be communicated in due course. The Queen died aged 96 last week, which led to a raft of postponements across different sports in Britain over the weekend, including Premier League and English Football League (EFL) games.

Bayern defence braces for return of Barca’s Lewandowski to Munich

Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann will decide only shortly before the game which central defenders will face Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski as he returns to Munich for their Champions League Group C match on Tuesday. The Poland forward, who scored 344 goals for Bayern in 375 games during his eight years at the club, joined the Spanish side in July in a deal worth 45 million euros ($45.63 million).

Juergen Klopp seeks Liverpool reaction against Ajax even as injuries mount

Liverpool have identified their shortcomings from their Champions League loss to Napoli and must find consistency in their performances again if they are to beat Ajax Amsterdam in their second group game, manager Juergen Klopp said on Monday. Klopp said the 4-1 loss at Napoli last week was the “worst game we played since I was here”, adding that analyzing the match was akin to watching a “horror film” with at least eight players playing below their level. “We had a meeting, showed them the situations and I didn’t have to say a lot, the players know. We brought ourselves to this situation,” Klopp told reporters ahead of Tuesday’s game at Anfield.“We had obvious football problems which were from misjudgments. Everyone wanted to sort it by themselves, there was no structure. “We had four o...

Skipper Elgar not sure where South Africa will find test runs

South Africa’s fragile top six and lack of runs at test level was exposed as England won a bowler-dominated three-match series 2-1 on Monday, leaving touring captain Dean Elgar with much to ponder ahead of their next five-day assignment in Australia. South Africa made 326 in their only innings at Lord’s in the first test, but did not manage a score over 179 in their next four visits to the crease as Elgar conceded their brittle middle order is letting the side down. They used every batter in their extended tour-party in the series, but only Sarel Erwee managed a single half-century. “I always bank on experience and we don’t have that at test level,” Elgar told reporters. “The next best thing is who do we have with experience in first class cricket back home? Is that the right solution, ...
