Watch: Sam Curran gets T20 record haul for England at men’s World Cup

Sam Curran took the first five-wicket haul by an Englishman in Twenty 20 internationals to help England beat Afghanistan in the cricket T20 World Cup on Saturday.

Let’s focus on WC, not Asia Cup issue: Rohit Sharma

Just as India and Pakistan geared up for Sunday’s ICC T20 World Cup match here at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, the off-field noise has been further amplified by discussions over next year’s Asia Cup. It was no surprise that during Saturday’s press conference, the issue was raised with Indian skipper Rohit Sharma. The backdrop to this were the statements from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah, who is also the Asian Cricket Council president. Shah had emphasised that the continental tournament would be held at a neutral venue and it drew a sharp response from the Pakistan Cricket Board. Subsequently, the BCCI president Roger Binny reiterated that touring Pakistan is a call that would be taken by the government. When specifically asked about these...

India-Pakistan games aren’t for the faint-hearted. It is not just the players’ skills, but temperament also plays a significant factor in the outcome. There will be match-ups and The Indian Express argues about the crucial moments which might play a big role in the T20 World Cup clash between India and Pakistan. If the rain gods stay away, we will have another cracker at the MCG on Sunday. Shaheen’s first over There are lots of questions regarding Pakistan’s ace speedster Shaheen Shah Afridi, who is making a comeback after a long injury layoff. Is he back to his best? Will he have the same impact as he had in the last T20 World Cup against India in the UAE? The simple answer is to ask Afghanistan’s Rahmanullah Gurbaz. In the warm-up match against Afghanistan, Afridi trapped Gurbaj with ...

Rohit prefers to use the word ‘challenge’, not ‘pressure’

Rohit Sharma shuffled in, leaned towards the microphones and quipped: “nervous”. It was an aside, perhaps a query to the sports correspondents and above all an ice-breaker. The scribes laughed and as a Saturday morning moved from dark clouds to glorious sun that lit up the Melbourne Cricket Ground, a calm Rohit answered every query and smiled at times.On the eve of the ICC T20 World Cup clash against Pakistan, the Indian skipper stressed that his men are ready: “We addressed what went wrong for us in the last (T20) World Cup. Coming to this World Cup, we are very well prepared. No team will be 100% right but we want to do as many things as possible right.” With Mohammed Shami replacing an injured Jasprit Bumrah, Rohit praised the former: “When Bumrah got injured, we wanted to have s...

T20 World Cup: India versus Pakistan, the big one at the G

Since Shaheen Shah Afridi bowled KL Rahul, trapped Rohit Sharma in front and finished off the job when he had captain Virat Kohli miscue a bouncer to the keeper last October in a Group game of the T20 World Cup, a lot has changed in Indian cricket. Shaheen Shah Afridi in T20 World Cup 2021. (AP) Kohli’s reign as captain ended soon, Rohit Sharma was handed the reins, Rahul Dravid took Ravi Shastri’s place in the coach’s hot seat. A slew of experiments followed, in terms of personnel, batting spots but India have stuck to the tried and tested and the few changes have been brought about because of injury. What has changed though is the Indian team’s batting approach – from keeping wickets in hand and waiting to accelerate towards the second half of an innings to going all out from the wor...

Can Ireland put brakes on Sri Lanka’s Kusal Mendis

Sri Lanka’s opening day shocker against Namibia and Ireland’s dire loss to Zimbabwe now seem a long way in the past. Both teams won back-to-back games, Sri Lanka routinely, and Ireland spectacularly, to bounce back and make it into the Super12 stage of the World Cup. Momentum has swung the way of both teams, both can play spoilsport in their group and their match on Sunday, despite the Lankans being heavy on-paper favourites, should be a tight contest. Key matchups: Sterling, Balbirnie vs Theekshana, KumaraAfter losing Dushmantha Chameera, Lahiru Kumara has deputised in fine fashion for Sri Lanka, and Maheesh Theekshana’s prowess in the powerplay makes the side potent to take early wickets. But if Ireland’s innings against West Indies is any indicator, they are up against it. Paul Stirl...

Ricky Ponting says West Indies’ early T20 World Cup exit is a ‘disgrace’ | Cricket News – Times of India

Despite ammunition delays from Germany owing to Ukraine war, Swapnil Kusale brings 3-position 50m shooting Olympic quota

Swapnil Kusale passed through the highest of highs and then crashed to the lowest of lows at the 2022 ISSF World Championships in Cairo on Saturday. The Indian 50m rifle three-position shooter had an excellent day at the range and won India a quota for the 2024 Paris Olympics in his event, but then missed out on a medal in cruel fashion. Ammunition delays from Germany in the lead up to the World’s, owing to the Ukraine war, did not deter the shooter in his quest of a quota from the World’s. The 27-year-old shooter was in second position in the final standing series and was a shoo-in for the gold medal shootout. But a poor series of 47.5, encapsulated by a horror 8.2 final shot, not only killed any hopes of Kusale reaching the shootout, but also dropped him to fourth spot and away from t...
