The all-rounder feels that if Nos. 7, 8 and 9 add a few runs, it could prove crucial The all-rounder feels that if Nos. 7, 8 and 9 add a few runs, it could prove crucial The competition for the pacer’s slot in the Indian team gets stiffer after every IPL season. So some proficiency with the bat could come in handy. Shardul Thakur seems to be well aware of that.The man who became part of cricketing folklore with an exceptional half-century in India’s stunning victory in the Brisbane Test early last year showed yet again his utility in the lower middle-order in the first ODI against South Africa at Lucknow.

‘If we remove Babar and Rizwan from the team, our batting isn’t performing’: Inzamam-ul-Haq

Pakistan made it two wins in two games in the tri-series with Bangladesh and New Zealand with their six wicket win over the Blackcaps. A major reason behind both the wins have been the highest run scorers in the two games. Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam. While Rizwan’s 78* was pivotal to Pakistan to a 21 run win against Bangladesh, it was skipper Babar Azam who scored an unbeaten 79 against the hosts a day later to chase 148. The duo have led the run scoring chart for Pakistan in the T20Is this year. While Rizwan has scored 702 runs in 15 innings, Babar has accumulated 520 runs in 16 innings. The concern for Pakistan however has been the middle order. Or as former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq quoted, “Agar team se Babar aur Rizwan ko nikal diya jaye toh hamari batting bilkul bhi perf...

Verstappen urged de Vries to call Red Bull’s Marko after Monza

Formula One world champion Max Verstappen on Saturday said he urged compatriot Nyck de Vries to give Red Bull motorsport head Helmut Marko a call after his impressive debut at last month’s Italian Grand Prix. De Vries, who finished in the points after being called in at the last minute to stand in for appendicitis-stricken Williams racer Alexander Albon in Monza, was on Saturday announced as a replacement for Alpine-bound Pierre Gasly at Red Bull sister team AlphaTauri for next season. The move revived the 27-year-old’s F1 hopes, after the former Formula Two and Formula E champion and Mercedes reserve appeared to have missed his chance. “This is incredible for him,” Verstappen said after taking pole position for Sunday’s Japanese Grand Prix, which could yield him a second successive tit...

‘(If Australia and England can)….why not the Indian team’: Shardul Thakur on batting deep in white ball format

There’s no rocket science behind Shardul Thakur’s success as a cricketer so far. He can get crucial wickets with the ball, often against the run of play. And he can score runs lower down the order. Just like he did in the first ODI against South Africa. Thakur dismissed Janemman Malan and Temba Bavuma and scored 33 runs off 31 deliveries in the chase of 250, which India fell short of 9 runs eventually. “If you see the teams who have done very well on the international platform, their batting lineup has been quite deep,” Shardul said in a media interaction ahead of the second ODI. “For that matter Australia, if you see Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, they bat at number eight and nine. Even for that matter England. Even their batting lineup is deep. Why not the Indian team? Even we can have ...

With the score at 4-6, 7-6 (8/6), Medvedev called it quits before the deciding set, with even Djokovic initially appearing surprised. "I'm shocked, really," Djokovic said. "He looked completely fine, but maybe the last seven eight, points I saw him move slower. "He wouldn't retire the match unless he felt he couldn't continue."

Missing T20 World Cup berth is huge setback but lot of cricket still left in me: Shardul Thakur | Cricket News – Times of India

RANCHI: Shardul Thakur has come to terms with the "big setback" of missing the T20 World Cup cut but the Mumbai medium pace bowling all-rounder is focussed on doing well in upcoming games as he still has a "lot of cricket" left in him. Thakur did play the T20 format for India during the time Hardik Pandya was doing his long and intense rehabilitation program but poor economy rate of 9.15 has basically pushed him out of the national team radar. "Of course, it's a big setback. Every player dreams to play in the World Cup, not just play but win it as well," Thakur said on the eve of the second ODI against South Africa. "It's okay I'm not selected this time. But there's still a lot of cricket left and also there's the ODI World Cup next year. My focus will be to do well in whatever matches ...
