It is not concerning, but we need to pick ourselves: Rohit on death overs bowling

India’s death overs bowling woes is not a concern but the team does need to improve its execution at the back end of the match, said skipper Rohit Sharma on Sunday. Invited to bat, India posted a massive 237 for 3 but South Africa recovered from a disastrous start to take the game deep before eventually falling short by 16 runs as the hosts claimed their first win over the Proteas in a T20 series at home. “The team wants to play and bowl in a certain way and we want to give them that confidence. Yes, we have not bowled well at the death in the last five or six games. We are doing the same to the opposition as well,” Rohit said in the post-match presentation. “To bowl and bat at the death is very tough. That is where the game is decided. It is not concerning, but we need to pick ourselve...

Reluctant pistol shooter Yuvika tops big guns for National Games gold

Pistol shooter Yuvika Tomar has no qualms in admitting that she did not harbour big dreams or wasn’t very passionate about the sport when she took it up. The then 15-year-old’s primary target was to just bag a national-level medal and secure a government job. Choosing shooting over other sports was a no-brainer for Yuvika who comes from Johri village in Baghpat, Uttar Pradesh, a hotbed of shooting. The nearest range was just a 10-minute walk from her place and had some high-profile visitors she could look up to for inspiration. World Championship gold medallist Saurabh Chaudhary was one of them. But when medals started coming thick and fast, Yuvika realised that she was cut out for the big league. The 21-year-old’s latest addition to the medal cabinet was a gold in the 10m air pistol ev...

Suryakumar Yadav: Mr 360 is Mr Invincible too

The third ball of the 11th over, KL Rahul creamed Aiden Markram for a six to wrap up his half-century in 24 balls. This was the fastest half-century by an Indian batter against South Africa. But the record lasted only 34 balls, as Suryakumar Yadav peeled off his half-century in merely 18 balls, sealed with a six carved over point, with his twinkling, whirling wrists, the upper body swaying back a fraction, and the body balanced on tip-toes. His 22-ball 61 powered India to 237/3, a summit too steep for South Africa to climb that they ended up 17 runs beneath it, despite a David Miller century, handing India a facile series win. The scorecard could leave an impression that South African ran India close, but the visitors were seldom in the chase. Only Miller’s hundred and Quinton de Kock...

How Sathiyan changed his game to beat World No. 9 Dang Qiu at TT Worlds

It was all going downhill. India’s top-ranked paddler G Sathiyan had just lost the first two games 10-12, 7-11 against World No. 9 Germany’s Dang Qiu at the World Table Tennis Team Championships in Chengdu, China and it seemed certain that the European champions and World No. 2 side would level the tie 2-2 and take it to a decider. But India were on a high. Sathiyan, in the first match of the tie, had come back from two games down to beat 36th-ranked Duda Benedikt 3-2 (11-13, 4-11, 11-8, 11-4, 11-9) and though National Games champion Harmeet Desai was outplayed 1-3 (7-11, 9-11, 13-11, 3-11) by Qiu in the second match, Manav Thakkar had punched way above his weight to beat Ricardo Walther 3-1 (13-11, 6-11, 11-8, 12-10) and give India a 2-1 lead.

Haaland, Foden hat-tricks as dazzling City humble United

Erling Haaland and Phil Foden scored hat-tricks to fire champions Manchester City to a rampant 6-3 thrashing of local rivals Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday. City’s football was slick, incisive and ruthless in its execution as Haaland claimed his third hat-trick in eight league games and Foden netted his first Premier League treble on a humbling afternoon for United. After a disappointing start under Erik ten Hag this season, with the Dutchman tasting defeat in his first two games, a run of four successive league wins had promised better times ahead but United were brought firmly back to earth by the neighbours. No City player had scored a hat-trick against their bitter rivals since Francis Lee in 1970 and in the space of 90 minutes two men achieved the feat. What an ...

Sarfaraz Khan has been on a run-scoring spree. The Mumbai batsman scored 138 in the Irani Trophy against Saurashtra in Rajkot and now has one more run than Don Bradman after 43 first-class innings. In a chat with The Indian Express, Sarfaraz spoke about the record, the process and why he broke down when friend Suryakumar Yadav got picked for India. Excerpts: How do you feel seeing your name above Bradman? I don’t have any words. I felt I was finished three years ago and now have a record surpassing Bradman. My hard work has paid off. Nobody thinks that he will set a record, it just happens. One-season wonder? I face around 500 balls in the nets daily.

Mismanagement galore during India vs South Africa 2nd T20I | Cricket News – Times of India

GUWAHATI: Trust Assam Cricket Association (ACA) to mess it up every time. Chaos once again reigned supreme at the ACA Barsapara Stadium here during the India-South Africa second T20I on Sunday. If a snake slithering onto the field during India's innings was not enough, the worst was in store when the stadium went into partial darkness during South Africa's chase of the massive target of 238, causing a second interruption in the match. Just after the first ball of Deepak Chahhar in the third over when South Africa were reeling at 5/2, play came to halt after one of the four floodlight towers went off, halting play for 18 minutes. All the players went back to the dressing room and it took about six minutes for the lights to slowly turn on one by one before play resumed. Blaming it on a "t...

At the end of 7 overs of the Indian innings as the South Africans were repositioning themselves, giving them company was a snake that was moving towards long-on.
