Imagine waking up at 3am, having breakfast and then having a high-intensity training session at 4.30am. That’s exactly what the Colombia U-17 squad had to do in order to prepare themselves for the time difference between their capital Bogota, and India, where they take on Spain in their opening match of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Navi Mumbai on Wednesday. Anticipating that jet lag could be a huge hindrance to their campaign since the time difference is a huge 10-and-a-half-hours, coach Carlos Paniagua devised a plan, which started right from October 1.Every day, the girls were asked to wake up an hour early.

Underwhelming India slump to 8-0 defeat to ruthless USA in FIFA U-17 WWC debut

The result was expected. The manner and scoreline, not so much. It took the USA just nine minutes to get on the scoresheet in their opening 2022 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup match against hosts India at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar on Tuesday. And once they started, you had a feeling that it was going to be a long night for India. USA produced an attacking masterclass to hand India an 8-0 drubbing, their biggest-ever win at an U-17 World Cup. It was also India’s worst-ever defeat at the U-17 level. Playing against a nation that has won the senior World Cup four times and the U-20 World Cup thrice was never going to be easy for the Indian team especially since most of the players had never played a competitive international match before. So while the outcome of the match was never i...

Need more ‘aggression’ from Proteas bowlers in Australia: Mark Boucher | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: South Africa head coach Mark Boucher on Tuesday said his bowlers need to be more aggressive in the T20 World Cup in Australia on pitches that will suit their seamers. The touring South Africans suffered a crushing seven-wicket loss to India in the third one-day international in New Delhi as they went down 2-1. India skittled out South Africa for 99 in the series decider but it was the bowlers' performance in the second match that bothered Boucher after they failed to defend 278 and let go of a 1-0 advantage in the three-match series. "Australia will suit our fast bowlers a lot better," Boucher, who will step down as the national coach after T20's showpiece event, told reporters. "We have got some good pace, some good bounce in our attack, so we need to keep the aggression the...

South Africa left with questions to answer ahead of T20 World Cup after India drubbing

Most of the players who demolished South Africa in Tuesday’s series-decider will not feature in the upcoming T20 World Cup, but everyone seemed to be in a rush to impress if any of the chosen 15 becomes unavailable. South Africa didn’t know what hit them in Delhi, be it Mohammed Siraj with the short stuff, or the spinners whom the Proteas couldn’t make head or tail of, falling for a paltry 99 in 27.1 overs – their lowest ODI total against India and only the fourth time they had failed to reach three figures in the format. The home team didn’t break much sweat in securing a seven-wicket win and a 2-1 series triumph, with the match lasting much less than one 50-over inning. Washington Sundar has emerged as a kind of powerplay specialist and set the tone early by getting Quinton de Kock. D...

I have become practical, focus is on ODIs now: Kuldeep Yadav | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Kuldeep Yadav seems a person much more in control of things. After having lost his place in the first-choice India team during the Covid-19 pandemic, the left-arm spinner seems to have found his core from this year's IPL. Since the IPL, he has become consistent with his performance and that played a big part in this 'second-string' Indian team's victory in the ODI series against South Africa. "I have worked on my rhythm. Earlier, I used to impart pace on the ball from my shoulder. But now I got the rhythm to vary the pace. I got the confidence from the IPL.
