Jhulan will sorely be missed in the Indian seam ranks

Her long arms went up in the air. She broke into a broad smile. The crowd cheered. Her teammates sprinted towards her. They hugged her. She was still smiling, soaking up the moment, possibly for one last time, relishing the sound most musical to a bowler’s ears — of the stumps being rattled.It was wicket No. 255 for Jhulan Goswami in Women’s ODIs. The second on the list has 191 (Shabnim Ismail). It was also wicket No. 355 for Jhulan in international women’s cricket. The second on the list has 329 (Katherine Brunt). We do not know for sure how long Jhulan will be on top of those lists. What we know is that we would be lucky if women’s cricket could produce another bowler like her. A skilful, hard-working bowler who could carry a country’s attack on her shoulders for two decades like ...

‘When Surya started hitting, I looked at the dug-out. Rohit & Rahul bhai said, you can just keep batting on,’ Virat Kohli says after a 48-ball 63

How does Virat Kohli decide it’s better to go a touch quiet, let the more attacking partner do more of the hitting even after he has started in an attacking vein as he has repeatedly done this series against Australia? It’s “utilising my experience”, he would say at the end of India’s series win against Australia, and also add that he also looks for confirmation from the dugout from the captain Rohit Sharma and the coach Rahul Dravid. “When Surya started hitting it like that, I kinda looked at the dug-out as well. Rohit and Rahul bhai both told me, ‘you can just keep batting on’ because Surya was striking it that well. It was just about building a partnership, so I used my experience a little bit, stayed back.” Once Suryakumar fell, going for yet another six off the last ball of the 14t...

WADA’s war on drugs continues as cannabis remains on banned list

In September last year, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said it was reviewing the status of cannabis, which is prohibited in competition. This followed the positive test of USA’s sprinting star Sha’Carri Richardson during the US Olympic Track and Field trials in June. She was banned and missed the Olympics. However, on Thursday WADA said the recreational drug would remain on its list. Is an athlete at risk of getting banned if she or he ingests marijuana? Cannabis is sourced from the cannabis sativa plant. There are over 500 chemical substances in the plant but the one on Wada’s prohibited list is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC gives users of marijuana the high. So, cannabis in Wada’s books is marijuana, the chemical in which is THC. So, an athlete can test positive for cannabis wh...

What made Ravi Shastri call Suryakumar Yadav’s six off Daniel Sams as the shot of the match?

“Shot of the match bhai!” Ravi Shastri cooed, only he, as is his wont, pronounced bhai as bye when Suryakumar Yadav ran down the track to the pacer Daniel Sams and hit a back of length ball on the up and over long-off. Quite a stunning hit that, and brought up memories of Sachin Tendulkar sashaying down the pitch and slamming Glen McGrath for a six and a four off somewhat similar balls to long-off boundary in that famous duel at Nairobi 22 years back. Even three days back for that matter, Sachin Tendulkar was doing it at the Road Safety World Series: though he hit a short-of-length ball from Chris Tremlett over long-on. Now, long-off is another thing altogether. And though Sams is no McGrath, the ball was a touch more difficult. As it was a tad more back of length and rose that touch m...

Tiafoe seals first Laver Cup title for Team World | Tennis News – Times of India

LONDON: Frances Tiafoe sealed Team World's first victory over Team Europe in the Laver Cup as he saved four match points on the way to beating Stefanos Tsitsipas on Sunday. The American, who beat Roger Federer in the Swiss great's last competitive match on Friday, proved a fly in Europe's ointment once again with a scintillating victory. He was outplayed in the first set but roared back to win 1-6, 7-6(11), 10-8 to give Team World an unassailable 13-8 lead. Team World, who had lost the four previous editions of the team event, began the day trailing 8-4 but Canada's Felix Auger-Aliassime stunned Novak Djokovic 6-3, 7-6(3) having earlier partnered Jack Sock to a 2-6, 6-3, 10-8 victory against Andy Murray and Matteo Berrettini.

Kolhi, the new (six) hitman, Surya plays for the team, even when on 45 & the emotional Axar

Virat Kolhi projects himself as a reluctant six-hitter. He is (perhaps deliberately) underselling himself. He might not be as languid a six-hitter as Rohit Sharma or as audacious as Suryakumar Yadav. But he can hit humongous one himself (one of every 24 balls he faces is not a sorry record; Rohit Sharma’s is a marginally better 21). But of late, he has turned the ignition on his six-hitting. In the last four games, he has struck one every 12 balls. The last of them realistically knocked Australia off the game. India required 11 off the last over, and with a neat swing over long on off the first ball from Daniel Sams, he slashed the equation to a manageable five off as many balls. He does most of his six-hitting business from the crease. A half-stride forward, a full step back, a high b...

When Ashakiran Barla won the 800m title at the recent Youth Nationals in Bhopal, she wanted to share the joy with her mother back home in Jharkhand. But the15-year-old had to wait for almost two days to even speak to her mother at their home in Naxal-affected Gumla district. The reason is best explained in Ashakiran’s own words: “Jab bijli hi nahi hai toh phone kaise hoga? (How can my mother have a phone when we don’t even have an electricity connection yet?). Ashakiran’s home in the Adivasi village of Nawaidh, about 100km from Ranchi, is yet to receive an electricity connection despite several pleas to local authorities. “My mother got the news about my medal from a neighbor and she called from their phone. She didn’t even know that I had travelled to Bhopal for the competition,” says ...

India vs Australia 3rd T20I Highlights: Suryakumar Yadav and Virat Kohli power India to a six-wicket win in series decider | Cricket News – Times of India

HYDERABAD: It all boiled down to the last three overs. The Australians, who were 140 for six at the end of the 17th overs, had got 46 in the final three. The Indians, who had set the chase up very nicely needing just 32 for a series win, overcame some spirited fightback to post a thumping six-wicket win in the third and final T20I match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Sunday. Virat Kohli struck some welcome form with a 48-ball 63 (3x4, 4x6) and though he fell with just five needed off five balls, the Delhi batter had ensured a victory. Hardik Pandya remained unbeaten on 25 as the Indians replied with 187 for four with a ball to spare. In the end, the difference between the teams was the steady show of the Indian batters in the middle overs. Scorecard | As it happenedBut the...

MCC says run-out decision in India vs England women’s match ‘properly’ made | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: The MCC, the guardians of the laws of cricket, on Sunday stamped its seal of approval on all-rounder Deepti Sharma's run out of Charlotte Dean at the non-striker's end which saw India win the third women's ODI against England here. India managed to pull off a win as Charlotte Dean (47), the last England batter, was adjudged run out in controversial fashion, for backing up. Dean was out of her ground and Deepti simply held the ball to remove the bails, leaving the English team flabbergasted.
