Shaheen Shah Afridi takes cheeky dig at critics of Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan as PAK defeat ENG by 10 wickets

Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan took part in a record-breaking double-century opening stand as Pakistan defeated England by 10 wickets on Thursday. This was also the second time when Pakistan had managed to chase down a target in T20I without losing a single wicket with the first one coming against India in the 2021 World Cup. Babar’s 110 not out and Rizwan’s 88 not out will, for the time being, silence their naysayers who were very vocal about their form during and after the Asia Cup. This innings will come as a relief to not only the countless Pakistan fans but also their teammates. One of their teammate, Shaheen Shah Afridi took a veiled jab at the critics of Babar and Rizwan by posting a rather cheeky tweet where he said, “I think it is time to get rid of Kaptaan @babarazam258 and @i...

Harmanpreet was overthinking, which resulted in her playing a bit cautious in the past: Coach who helped her break shackles

On Wednesday night, when the India Women beat England Women by 88-runs in the second ODI at Canterbury, in Adelaide, a coach typed out a message for Harmanpreet Kaur Bhullar, the skipper of the winning team. Harmanpreet’s 111-ball unbeaten 143 was the highlight of the Indian innings, her fifth ODI century and helped India Women win their first series in England since 1999. Coach Yadwinder Singh Sodhi watched the India innings and went to sleep knowing that Harmanpreet had well and truly turned a corner. “I had to go to work this morning. But watching her play in her natural style of dominating the opposition bowlers was satisfying. It reminded me of her century (171) against Australia in the semifinals of the 2017 World Cup. I messaged her that ‘when you play your natural attacking g...

Super Mouma, 38, beats Diya Chitale, who’s half her age at National Games

In April, almost three years after giving birth, 38-year-old paddler Mouma Das reached the women’s singles final of the TT Senior Nationals. Remarkably, she had trained for only 15 days in that entire duration. Mouma was at it again at the 36th National Games being held in Gujarat. Using her wealth of experience and all her reserve energy, she beat 19-year-old Diya Chitale, who represented India at the recently-held Commonwealth Games. The win gave West Bengal a crucial 2-1 lead over Maharashtra in the women’s team event, which ultimately saw them triumph 3-1. The win also gave Mouma a newfound hope, one that may seem farfetched but for someone who has come back so strongly from a three-year break at the age of 38, it’s difficult to ignore. The dream of getting back into the Indian team...

“It’s just blood, will heal … I don’t accept defeat till the end. I won’t give up till 6 mins are over” Bajrang Punia on how he won bronze at wrestling World C’ships

Here’s what Bajrang Punia’s equally audacious wrestling wife Sangeetha told him after a head injury wouldn’t stop dripping blood and needed bandaging at the recent World Championships: “Wo boli koi nai injury hui hai, iska patti karvaake, dobara se bronze ke liye khelo.” The blood is no biggie, strap on some gauze and go for the bronze, he recalls on his return from a stupendous 4th World’s medal. Bravado manifesting to work like boldness, has been central to Bajrang Punia’s big tournament outings all these years. After 1 Olympic medal and 4 from the World Championships, bravado ceases sounding like a reckless thing he marinates his bulk in, when he’s tossed into glazing fire. But on the matter of blood, Bajrang and Sangeeta – have made cavalier-morphing-to-courageous into one right art...

Shivam Lokhare repays coach Kashinath Naik’s trust with a 70 plus throw

Maharashtra javelin thrower Shivam Lokhare, 18, outwitted the more seasoned athletes at the senior State Meet on Thursday to bag a gold. His effort of 71.65m puts him in the 7th spot in the U-20 Asia season best list. The teenager’s gold-winning effort was more than five metres better than the silver medallist Akshay Ghong’e 66.76m. This was the first senior-level meet for the teenager who has won several national-level titles at the junior level with a 700 gms spear. His 70-plus throw with the standard 800 gms javelin proved that Lokhare had made the transition successfully. The talented thrower was first spotted by seasoned army coach Kashnath Naik, who has worked with top throwers like Annu Rani and Neeraj Chopra, at a domestic meet just three months back. “Back then he had a 62 plus...

Ricky Ponting’s T20 WC face-offs: Bumrah has edge over Afridi, wants both DK, Pant in Indian XI

Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant are capable enough batters to select themselves in the same playing XI during the upcoming T20 World Cup, feels former Australian captain Ricky Ponting. In his latest ICC review, Ponting did his five face-offs for the marquee event and one of them was the heated debate as to who should be in the playing XI? Should it be a potential destroyer of bowling attack Pant or the “designated finisher “Karthik? “The debate in the Indian cricketing circles has long been raging on who should be the designated wicketkeeper-batter in the side. While Karthik can boast about being an excellent finisher, Pant’s prodigious talent has seen him being backed by many,” Ponting wrote in his column. India have fielded both in the same side on some occasions and Ponting believes ...

Experience of playing IPL in India helped to stay calm, says Tim David

The experience of playing in Indian conditions during his IPL stint helped him to stay calm under pressure during the opening T20I, said big-hitting Singapore-born Australian Tim David. The 26-year-old made his IPL debut for Royal Challengers Bangalore in Sharjah against Chennai Super Kings last year. He was then bought by Mumbai Indians and played eight matches for the franchise this year. “I think having had the experience of playing in India before and playing a fair bit of T20 cricket recently, I felt calm the other night because I knew that we’re in a good position to be able to chase those runs,” said David during a virtual press conference. “And the way the pitch was playing so I think to get over the line, you know, that still has to happen.

Harmanpreet Kaur, Smriti Mandhana and the art of hitting in women’s cricket

As Harmanpreet Kaur demonstrated during her 143 against England, a combination of fluid bat-swing and finishing the shot has elevated batting in women’s cricket in recent years It was a mishit really, off the fifth ball she faced on Wednesday evening against England, but it said much about Harmanpreet Kaur’s bat-swing, the soul of her batting. It was a gentle length delivery from the left-armer Freya Kemp – who would cop it from Harmanpreet in the end overs – and it seemed a regulation push, but her hands got away from her, as if on a mind of their own; she just about checked it and looked up with a touch of concern but even that handcuffed flow had chipped the ball over the mid-on fielder for a couple of runs. Not many swing it like Harmanpreet Kaur. Catch the highlights of her mayhem ...

COIMBATORE: Baba Indrajith's scintillating hundred and Krishnappa Gowtham's rearguard 43 took South Zone past West Zone's first-innings total on an interesting second day of the Duleep Trophy final.

Use of ‘rigid tape’ by doctors after head injury was strange, affected my focus: Bajrang Punia | More sports News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Star wrestler Bajrang Punia remains baffled by the on-spot doctors' decision to use 'rigid tape' on his bleeding head, which severely hampered his focus ahead of the quarter-final clash against USA's John Michael Diakomihalis during the World Championship. Bajrang, gunning for his maiden world title, suffered a head injury in his opening bout against Cuba's Alejandro Enrique Vlades Tobier in the very first minute of the clash in Belgrade. The on-spot doctors rushed to the mat and applied 'rigid tape', which is actually used to stabilise knee and ankle. Mostly tennis players and basketball players use that tape. "God knows why they did that? It caused irritation because my hairs were getting pulled as it had stuck on my head. They did not even put cotton on the wound and direc...
