‘With his pace, if the ball is not swinging, he will probably struggle there’: Wasim Akram on Bhuvneshwar Kumar at T20 World Cup

Former Pakistan pacer Wasim Akram feels Bhuvneshwar Kumar is likely to struggle in Australia in the upcoming T20 World Cup. In a recent interview with Khaleej Times, Akram said, “He (Bhuvneshwar) is good with the new ball, but with his pace, if the ball is not swinging, he will probably struggle there. But he is a very good bowler no doubt, swings both ways, has the yorker. But you need pace in Australia.” Since the last T20 World Cup, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been India’s leading wicket taker in T20Is with 35 scalps in 26 innings.

Which team won’t want to have a player such as Ben Stokes in their lineup? He can score runs with the bat. He can take wickets with the ball.

In the 12th over of Australia’s chase, Stokes managed to save four runs at long off after he leaped to throw the ball inside the boundary line. Here, have a look at the moment. Simply outstanding!

Women’s U-17 World Cup: Spain reaping rewards for investing in women’s football and catching them young

As many as 91,648 turned up at the stadium for a UEFA Champions League semi-final last season. 91,553 were present for the quarterfinal. No, it wasn’t the semi-final between Real Madrid and Chelsea or Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City. It was a game between Barcelona and Wolfsburg and the quarter-final, an El Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid, in the women’s Champions League. The semi-final attendance set a record for a women’s football match. What’s heartening though was that it wasn’t a one-off. Neither was the attendance during the El Clasico quarterfinal. Stadium attendance for women’s football games in Spain have seen a gradual rise over the past five years (excluding games played in bio-bubbles). It’s also a reflection of the nation’s focus on women’s football and t...
