Rohit Sharma’s unbeaten 46 in 20 helps India beat Australia in a shootout

Riding on Rohit Sharma’s cultured blitz, India got back to winning ways. They were running away with the game when leg-spinner Adam Zampa intervened with the wickets of Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav in successive deliveries. Suddenly the asking rate started to climb. As the game neared its end, the hosts required 14 off seven balls, on the heels of Hardik Pandya’s dismissal. But Rohit played a classy – he oozed class throughout – cut shot for a four against Pat Cummins to bring the equation down to 10 runs off the final over. Dinesh Karthik sealed the deal in the first two balls from Daniel Sams, hitting a six followed by a four. Chasing 91 for victory in a truncated game, India won by six wickets with four balls to spare to level the three-match series. The warm embrace that Karthik...

Brace of cuts from Rohit, Bumrah’s yorker from hell and Harshal, a forlorn figure

The pulls of Rohit Sharma were typically regal — the stroke fetched him three sixes and a four, each worthy of an essay in itself, each struck with a slice of cricketing divinity. But on the elegance-scale, two of his cut shots shaded out the pull. The first was when Daniel Sams flung one too wide and short outside off-stump. Sharma did not throw his bat at it, he seldom does, but just extended his arms, from the crease, and glided the ball through the vacant slips, fine and fast enough to beat third man. The next was classier. Cummins had erred slightly on the shorter side, a misdirected slower ball, and Sharma just worked the ball past backward point with nothing but a gentle swish of his wrists. The shot seemed nothing but a reluctant steer, but such was the timing that it purred al...

‘There were better ways to handle this situation’: FIDE criticises Carlsen for his conduct in the Niemann Saga, prepared to task Fair Play Commission

Two days after Magnus Carlsen resigned in his rematch against Hans Niemann after making just one move, The International Chess Federation (FIDE) has criticised the five time world champion for his conduct in the ongoing saga between the Norwegian and American GM. In a statement made public, Arkady Dvorkovich, the FIDE President said, “We strongly believe that the World Champion has a moral responsibility attached to his status, since he is viewed as a global ambassador of the game.” “His actions impact the reputation of his colleagues, sportive results, and eventually can be damaging to our game.

Jhulan, pace spearhead and bridge between generations, bids adieu

In the 1997 women’s World Cup final at Eden Gardens Jhulan Goswami was a ball girl and was wowed by Australian seamer Cathryn Fitzpatrick’s pace and movement. After that final, the Diego Maradona fan made up her mind about wanting to play for India one day. About two-and-a-half decades down the line, as Jhulan is set to play her final game for India, she has been accorded a rare honour that eluded even the likes of Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman – retiring on the field and playing the farewell game at the Mecca of cricket. The third ODI between England Women and India Women at Lord’s on Saturday would be Jhulan’s last. She leaves the international scene as the highest wicket-taker across formats in women’s internationals – 353 and one more chance to add to the tally tomorrow. An internatio...

Indian football returns to field with clash against Singapore

After months of federation politics, allegations and counter-allegations, uncertainty over the future of the chief coach and the risk of being an international pariah, the Indian football team will return to action on Saturday when they take on Singapore in a three-nation friendly tournament in Ho Chi Minh City. Since May, the focus in Indian football has largely been on off-field affairs given the goings-on within the All India Football Federation. But with a new body now in place, and the technical committee extending the contract of coach Igor Stimac until the end of the Asian Cup, India can finally start its preparation for next year’s continental championship. But it begins in a far-from-ideal situation. Even though most of the players have had a proper pre-season with their clubs,...

Rahane’s advice helps Jaiswal to double ton in Duleep Trophy final

“The words are still fresh. I have kept them close to my heart. Ajju bhai (Ajinkya Rahane) once told me that to play a long innings, start with small goals. Keep targets of five runs each, don’t play anything rash and most importantly, just stay there. To win a big battle, I need to stay at the crease and runs will surely come. A good ball may take your wicket, but you don’t give any chance.” Yashasvi Jaiswal recalls the words of wisdom he received during the first game of this season’s Duleep Trophy while batting with Rahane, who is captaining West Zone. At 20, the Mumbai opener has been in a rich vein of form. His unbeaten 209 runs against South Zone in a tight final at Coimbatore, is his second double hundred in two weeks. Jaiswal had come from a healthy Ranji Trophy season where he...

“I thought I would be sent home” When Matthew Hayden fired a rocket in Nagpur into a train that made him fear

Matthew Hayden shared a hilarious story about his experience in Nagpur, the venue for the second T20 between India and Australia. Hayden set the context first, bringing up the 2005 triumph when Australia crushed India by 342 runs in Nagpur in a Test to win the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. The episode occurred in the celebrations. “I can tell this story now as it’s more than 10 years!” He started on air on Star Sports. Hayden said he came out in the night from the team hotel to lit up a firecracker: a rocket. It wiggled out of control and took a completely different route than what he had anticipated. “It took off into a house. It was an open building (under construction). it went through the house and into a train! I thought I was going to be sent home. Luckily no one was hurt and I did go...

Son Heung-min's late free-kick earned South Korea a 2-2 draw with fellow World Cup qualifiers Costa Rica in a friendly international in Goyang on Friday. The Tottenham Hotspur forward curled his 85th minute set piece past substitute goalkeeper Patrick Sequeira minutes after Esteban Alvarado had been sent off for handling the ball outside the penalty area.
