Pakistan don’t have a finisher like India’s Hardik Pandya, rues Shahid Afridi

Former Pakistan captain Shaheed Afridi lamented the lack of a finisher in his country’s T20 lineup akin to Indian star Hardik Pandya. Speaking to sports presenter Sawera Pasha, Afridi agreed that Pakistan lacked a finisher of Pandya’s caliber and said, “This kind of a finisher (like Hardik Pandya) we don’t have. We thought Asif Ali, and Khushdil will do the job but they haven’t. “Nawaz is also not that consistent, and neither is Shadab. Among these four players, at least two need to be consistent,” said Afridi on Samaa TV show. “The period in which Shadab bowls is very crucial. The day he does a good job with the ball, Pakistan wins,” said Afridi added. The former allrounder also spoke about Pakistan’s chances of winning the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022 and said, “In the kind of pitches ...

England “offers” to be neutral venue for Indo-Pak Test series, BCCI “not interested”

London, Sep 27 (PTI) England and Wales Cricket Board has informally offered to be the hosts if India and Pakistan plan to play a bilateral Test series but BCCI sources said chances of that happening in near future is “next to nil”. The UK daily ‘Telegraph’ reported that “Martin Darlow, the deputy chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board, has held talks with the Pakistan Cricket Board during the current Twenty20 series and offered England’s grounds as venues for ideally a three-match Test series in future.” While the ECB has made the offer for its own commercial gains, the powers that be in the BCCI laughed off the suggestions and said that no such possibilities might arise at least in next few years. “Firstly, ECB spoke to PCB about an Indo-Pak series and that’s a bit weird.

Karun Nair axed as KSCA turns to its youth brigade | Cricket News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Lack of consistency caught up with middle-order batter Karun Nair, who was on Tuesday omitted from the list of probables named by the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20 tournament beginning next month. The 30-year-old, who was the second highest run-getter for Karnataka in the previous edition of the tournament, failed to make the 25-player cut. The list will be pruned to 15 before the team leaves for Mohali for the tournament beginning on October 11. In 39 Mushtaq Ali matches since 2018, Karun has scored 782 runs, which includes four half-centuries, at an average which is a shade below 25. Speaking to TOI on Karun’s exclusion, state senior selection committee chairman Fazal Khaleel said, “We can’t pick a player of his stature among...

India suffer 0-3 defeat to Vietnam in international football friendly | Football News – Times of India

HO CHI MINH CITY: India suffered a 0-3 thrashing at the hands of a higher-ranked Vietnam in the second and final match of the Hung Thinh Friendly football tournament on Tuesday. It was a reality check for the 104th ranked Indians after three convincing wins in June in the Asian Cup qualifiers and a 1-1 draw against Singapore in this tournament on Saturday as they were literally outplayed by the 97th ranked Vietnam in the second half. Phan Van Duc (10th), Nguyen Van Toan (49th) and Nguyen Van Quyet (70th) scored for Vietnam to no reply from the Indians whose defenders had a mediocre outing, especially in the second half. The Indians, however, were on equal terms with their opponents in the first half only to be blown away in the second session. Vietnam won the tournament with two wins fr...

Iran has been embroiled in massive protests over the past few days after a 22-year-old woman, Mahsa Amini, died in custody while being held by the morality police for violating the country’s strictly enforced Islamic dress code. Iran’s national football team player Sardar Azmoun, who plays for the Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen and Iran’s national team, has pledged his support for the protesters in what is being dubbed a daring act. He is the first player from the national team to do so. In an Instagram story, Azmoun expressed his anger and said that he cannot remain silent despite a rule in the team prohibiting the players from speaking out during the team’s World Cup training camp in Austria. “The ultimate [punishment] is to be kicked out of the national team, which is a small price...

India to endure Spanish challenge in Hockey World Cup opener | Hockey News – Times of India

Failed to defend targets in Asia Cup 2022 because of dew: India batting coach Vikram Rathour

Defending targets in T20 Internationals has been a grey area for the Indian team but batting coach Vikram Rathour surprisingly cited “dew” being a factor which was not the case when the team played in the recently concluded Asia Cup. Since the Super 4s of the Asia Cup, India have played six T20Is and won three of them while losing three. However, all the three defeats — against Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia — have come while defending targets. Contrary to Rathour’s claims, none of the Indian team members, who spoke to the media after the defeats against Pakistan and Sri Lanka in Dubai, blamed it on the dew factor making defending difficult. “We are working on that area of getting better at defending targets. But to be fair to our bowlers, toss plays a vital role and every time we ha...

Schmidt penalty save earns Japan goalless draw with Ecuador | Football News – Times of India

Japan goalkeeper Daniel Schmidt kept out Ener Valencia's 82nd minute penalty in Dusseldorf on Tuesday to earn Hajime Moriyasu's side a 0-0 draw with Ecuador. Schmidt reached to his right to keep out Valencia's spot kick after Michael Estrada had been brought down in the area by Shogo Taniguchi at the end of a disjointed game between the two World Cup qualifiers. Ecuador will open the World Cup finals against hosts Qatar on Nov. 20 before taking on the Netherlands and Senegal while Japan have been drawn to meet Germany, Spain and Costa Rica. Moriyasu made 11 changes to the starting line-up that defeated the United States, also in Dusseldorf, on Friday, with Gaku Shibasaki taking over from Maya Yoshida as captain and Schmidt replacing Shuichi Gonda in goal.

Did Viv Richards hit a six to smash a hotel window or did Thiruvananthapuram, a city of stories, imagine it?

All six gates, barring the entrance of the University Stadium, remain locked all the time. Not for the fear of miscreants sneaking into the ground that hosted the state’s first-ever international game at night and turning it into a bar, but to keep off cows and goats. A policeman that mans the gate points out to a grassless patch, a trail of destruction left by a nanny goat that wandered into the building, office to some state sports body associations. “To tell you the truth, we end up monitoring goats and dogs more than human beings,” he says. The Greenfield Stadium is a sparkling modern venue, where the India-South Africa series kicks off from Wednesday, but the soul of the city’s cricket is trapped inside the unkempt University Stadium, neighboured by the State Assembly Building, the...

Shubman Gill slams maiden ton for Glamorgan against Sussex | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: India batsman Shubman Gill slammed his maiden County Championship ton (119, 139b, 16x4, 2x6) for Glamorgan, against Sussex, on Tuesday at Hove. Unbeaten on 91 off 102 balls at stumps on Day 1, Gill reached his century off 123 balls, before he mistimed a lofted shot over mid-wicket and was eventually caught by Sean Hunt off off-spinner Jack Carson. Both the 23-year-old’s two sixes – a ramp shot over slips off Pakistan pacer Faheem Ashraf, and a superb pickup shot off pacer Bradley Currie over mid-wicket -were classy shots. It was Gill’s 8th century in his 38th First-Class game. Glamorgan shared a video on twitter of Gill reaching his century, captioning it: “Century!!! Shubman Gill makes a maiden Glamorgan century. 123 balls, 12 fours, 2 sixes. Well batted, Shubman.” 𝗖𝗘𝗡𝗧𝗨𝗥𝗬!!!Sh...

The hosts, batting first, notched up 284 and then bowled out their opposition for 178.

I-League Committee sticks to 3+1 rule on number of foreigners in season beginning October 29 | Football News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The League Committee of the All India Football Federation (AIFF) on Sunday allowed I-League clubs to register six foreigners, including one Asian, on the match-day squad but permitted only four of them (under the prevailing 3+1 rule) in the playing eleven for this season beginning on October 29. Last season, the I-League clubs were allowed to register six foreign players but only four, including one Asian, were allowed on the match-day squad. India head coach Igor Stimac is not a fan of increasing the number of foreigners in the domestic leagues on the grounds that less number of Indian players will get to play. "The League Committee recommended (to the executive committee) to increase the number of foreigners to 5+1 (5 foreigners from anywhere in the world, and one from Asia...
