You learn a lot playing on tricky wickets: Rohit

India captain Rohit Sharma is happy that his team got to “learn a lot” in their eight-wicket victory over South Africa in a low-scoring chase on a “tricky track” in the first T20 International. Suryakumar Yadav’s unbeaten 50 off 33 balls ensured that India didn’t face too many hiccups despite KL Rahul’s struggles on a track where South Africa were left tottering at 9/5 at the start of the game. “The wicket was tricky. You learn a lot playing such a game. You understand what the team needs to do in tough conditions. It was nice to play a game like that. We knew the bowlers will get something seeing grass on the pitch, but we didn’t expected help for the full 20 overs,” Rohit said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

Chahar & Arshdeep send back half SA side in 15 balls as India secure victory in first T20I

Some of the stands were just filling in; most of the spectators were finding their way and sitting in the maze of the colossal Greenfield Stadium; the moonless sky was not yet fully dark. The game was just 15 balls old, not even one-tenth of the match had progressed, but already the contest seemed dead, and the match slow-burning to a long and dreary climax. The contest, in that sense, was over before it had begun. Over much before KL Rahul sealed India’s eight-wicket win with a thumping six off Tabraiz Shamsi with 18 balls to spare. Over when South Africa lost five wickets in 15 balls. T20 games are not unaccustomed to explosive starts, but often, it’s the case of opening batsmen tearing into the bowlers on shirtfronts. The recent Australia-India series was a classic instance, wherein ...

Bhowneesh Mendiratta earns India’s first 2024 Paris Olympics quota place in shooting

Bhowneesh Mendiratta earned India’s first 2024 Paris Olympics quota place in shooting, after he finished a commendable fourth in the men’s trap competition at the ongoing ISSF Shotgun World Championship in Osijek, Croatia. Bhowneesh missed a world championship medal narrowly in the process, being the first to bow out with 13 out of the first 15 hits in the 35-shot medal match. There were four quota places each up for grabs in both the men’s and women’s trap event on the day. The 23-year-old world number 144 (before the final) from Faridabad, however, secured the Paris Olympics quota for the country after he topped the second ranking round match with a brilliant 24 out of 25 hits. It was an excellent effort from the Indian youngster, whose only senior medal at the world stage before this...

Watch: Suresh Raina takes a stunner against Australia Legends in Road Safety World Series semi

Suresh Raina, representing the India Legends, rolled back the years on Wednesday against the Australia Legends team when he took an absolutely sensational catch to dismiss Ben Dunk (46) in the semifinals of the Road Safety World Series. Regarded as one of the finest fielders in his prime till his retirement last year, Raina leapt off his feet, displaying his vintage agility, and grabbed a stunning catch in the 16th over. Abhimanyu Mithun was bowling and Dunk went after the wideish delivery and slapped it towards point, where Raina was waiting for it with open arms. 🥵🫂 @ImRaina #Raina pic.twitter.com/fyBo9ckq33 — Dhruv Joshi (@dhruvjoshi___25) September 28, 2022 The wicket came at a crucial point in the match when Dunk was looking dangerous after Australia Legends were sent out to bat ...

In Gujarat, the National Games, garba and the start of election fever

For once, Divyansh Panwar isn’t fretting over targets and decimals. Instead, the 20-year-old world cup medallist who practices a sport that demands absolute stillness of mind and body – shooting – wants to let himself loose and shake a leg. “I’m in Ahmedabad during Navratri, so I got to try garba one of the nights,” the Tokyo Olympian says. Not very far from the Ahmedabad Rifle Club in the old city area, at the Sabarmati Riverfront, a rower can’t stop talking about Navratri as well. Not in terms of a garba night out, however. Turns out, most hotels at the six host cities of the National Games, including Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar and Bhavnagar, have refused to serve non-vegetarian meals because of the festival. “So, we have arranged all meals for them at the venues because, for them, protei...

IND vs SA 1st T20: ‘Surya woke up after he got hit!’

“He [Suryakumar Yadav] woke up after he got hit!” KL Rahul would say later. It was a brute of a first delivery from Anrich Nortje that cut in sharply with bounce to ram into Surya’s ribcage. The next ball could have been the wicket ball but proved the jail-break moment. He was now on an off-stump guard and tried to swing a short-of-length kicker to the on side but was done in by the pace, the line, and the bounce. But the ball flew off the leading edge over third man for a six, leaving Nortje with a wry smile. Next ball, Nortje went for a yorker but sprayed it on to the pads, and Surya picked it up and over deep backward square-leg bonndary. Before Surya’s entry, Rabada had harassed KL Rahul and picked up Rohit Sharma with a wonderful away-seamer. It lined up on the off stump, sucking ...

‘Surya told me if he looked ‘to be defensive on this pitch, I am not sure I will be able to do the job .. I am going to play my shots’: Rahul shares Suryakumar’s secret recipe

India had lost their big guns Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in quick succession to the South Africa’s pumped-up pacemen Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje when Suryakumar Yadav walked in. The first ball was an unplayable Jaffa, that in KL Rahul’s words, made Surya “woke up”. It was a sharp lifting nipbacker from Nortje that rammed into a hopping Surya’s ribcage. It seems that ball helped firm up Suryakumar’s approach. Since the target wasn’t too much and the ball was moving around, a few batsmen might have decided to play out the pacers. Surya went the other way. The reason was interesting and revealing. “He said if I look to be defensive on a pitch like this, I am not sure I will be able to do the job for the team. I am going to stick with what I know best and play my shots and see how...

Denmark to wear World Cup jerseys that protest host Qatar

Denmark will wear team jerseys at the World Cup that protest the human rights record of host nation Qatar, with a black option unveiled Wednesday to honor migrant workers who died during construction work for the tournament. “The color of mourning,” kit manufacturer Hummel said in a post on Instagram releasing the black third-choice design. “While we support the Danish national team all the way, this shouldn’t be confused with support for a tournament that has cost thousands of people their lives,” the company said. The designs seem to complete a promise made by the Danish soccer federation last November to wear clothing with “critical messages” at the tournament in Qatar. This shirt carries with it a message. We don't wish to be visible during a tournament that has cost thousands of p...

Singapore GP: Birthday boy Verstappen can get F1 title party started early | Racing News – Times of India

SINGAPORE: Max Verstappen could be celebrating more than his 25th birthday at the floodlit Singapore Grand Prix this weekend as the Dutch driver takes a first shot at securing his second Formula One title.
