The greatest leave in T20 history as Ashwin releases Chennai 28 III at the Big G

Let’s go back to December 2016. Ravichandran Ashwin had just watched Chennai 28 II, for the first time. Sequel of the 2007 Venkat Prabhu directorial based on friendship set against the backdrop of gully cricket. In awe of it, the all-rounder tweeted, “What a wonderful movie ‘Chennai 28 II’. Completely put my life on rewind mode. Genuinely felt I could have been a part of it.” Little did he know six years later, he would produce a live sequel of the movie that touched him, almost coaxing Mohammed Nawaz into bowling a wide, and eventually leading India’s finish in the T20 World Cup thriller against Pakistan. Venkat Prabhu couldn’t resist. “Lucky us,” he tweeted, tagging Ashwin in a social media post alongside a five second scene from his 2007 movie. In it, actor Ranjith’s character (I...

West Indies’ early World Cup exit surprises and disappoints Pollard

West Indies’ legendary all-rounder Kieron Pollard is surprised and disappointed with the team’s early exit from the T20 World Cup and said all the stakeholders must share the blame. Two-time champions West Indies failed to qualify for the Super 12 stage of the T20 showpiece in Australia after suffering defeats to Scotland and Ireland in the first round. “A bit surprised, to be honest that (West Indies) weren’t able to get over the line against the other teams,” Pollard told i95.5fm, a Trinidad-based radio station. “But again, that speaks volumes of where our cricket as is at the moment. I feel it. I feel it for the guys because they are the ones that are going to get the bashing. And it’s not all their fault.” The elimination attracted reactions from across the cricketing world.

Middlesbrough have appointed ex-Manchester United caretaker Michael Carrick as their new manager, the second-tier Championship club said on Monday as the former midfielder landed his first role as a permanent boss.

The 41-year-old former England international replaces Chris Wilder who was sacked earlier this month when the club were in the bottom three. “Middlesbrough was the first professional club I played for as a nine-year old boy, so it’s a very special feeling to be back here as a head coach,” Carrick said in a statement.

T20 World Cup: De Kock blitz in vain as rain rescues Zimbabwe v South Africa

Quinton de Kock’s blistering knock nearly handed South Africa victory over Zimbabwe before rain played spoilsport in their T20 World Cup opener in Hobart on Monday and both teams ended up sharing the points. South Africa were comfortably chasing a reduced target of 64 off seven overs, after the match was already reduced to nine overs per side due to rain, and made an electric start with De Kock smashing 23 in the first over alone. Play was briefly stopped due to rain but De Kock picked up where he left off, accelerating to a brutal 18-ball 47 but the next interruption after three overs proved to be the final one, with South Africa needing only 13 runs to seal victory. Having elected to bat, Zimbabwe lost openers Craig Ervine (2) and Regis Chakabva (8) in the powerplay and were left r...

Lakshya Sen faces Kidambi Srikanth in opening round of French Open | Badminton News – Times of India

PARIS: Commonwealth Games champion Lakshya Sen will face teammate Kidambi Srikanth in the men's singles opening round match of the French Open badminton tournament on Tuesday. Sen and Srikkanth, the top two Indians in world ranking at eighth and 11th respectively, will battle it out for the second time in their career. Sen was the best Indian on show at the recently-concluded Denmark Open but he had lost to Japan's lowly ranked Kodai Naraoka in the quarterfinals. In their earlier match-up, Srikkanth had defeated Sen in a tightly-fought contest en route to winning a historic silver at the 2021 World Championships. The winner between the two Indians is likely to bump into the Danish world number two Anders Antonsen in the next round of the World Tour 750 event. HS Prannoy, who has been th...

Day after breathtaking win, Team India made Diwali dinner plans but players told not to get carried away

REACHING THE team hotel well past midnight, the Indian team, unlike their fans around the world, didn’t have time to celebrate the nerve-jangling World T20 win over Pakistan. Scheduled to catch an early morning flight to Sydney, where they play the Netherlands on Thursday, the cricketers, after playing the game of their lives, had to do the most mundane everyday thing – pack their bags and leave them in the hotel lobby for the logistical staff to ferry them to the airport. After the warm reception to Rohit Sharma & Co. by the hotel staff and the bus ride from the stadium with fans chasing them, chanting “Kohli, Kohli”, the team retired to the rooms. Their phones were clogged with missed calls and messages, answering all of them would have needed an entire day. A few Indian players t...

Man United show future is brighter without Ronaldo | Football News – Times of India

MANCHESTER (England): Manchester United may not have won their first game since banishing Cristiano Ronaldo from the squad but Saturday's 1-1 draw at Chelsea seemed to confirm the belief they are better off without the individualistic superstar. Although they needed a 94th-minute strike from Casemiro to rescue a point, United were dominant for large parts of the game and looked far more cohesive without the five-times world player of the year. Ronaldo, who has been ordered to train alone by coach Erik ten Hag since leaving the 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur early, has only started two Premier League games this term, the 4-0 thrashing by Brentford and the 0-0 draw with Newcastle United. In United's most impressive victories of the season against Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham, the 37-y...

Only Virat Kohli could have hit those two sixes off Haris Rauf: Hardik Pandya | Cricket News – Times of India

MELBOURNE: Hardik Pandya, one of the cleanest strikers in the game, feels only Virat Kohli could have come up with those two game-changing sixes off a seriously quick Haris Rauf in India's T20 World Cup opener against Pakistan. With 28 needed off the last 8 balls, India had a daunting task at hand but Kohli conjured up two strokes that will be spoken about for a long time. One was a straight-bat six over the bowler's head and the next was a flick over fine-leg under extreme pressure. That brought down the equation to a very gettable 16 off the final over. India pulled off a famous win in the last ball of the game. Hardik, who was watching Kohli's mastery from the other end, looked back at those special sixes.

ICC Twenty20 World Cup | Zimbabwe-South Africa game reduced to 9-over-a-side contest after rain delay

The T20 World Cup match between South Africa and Zimbabwe will be a nine-over-a-side affair after a rain delay of more than two hours here on October 24. After a pitch inspection at 9:10pm local time (3:40pm IST), the umpires decided to have nine-over-a-side match starting 9:35pm local time (4:05pm IST). Powerplay will be of three overs each. Zimbabwe skipper Craig Irvine won the toss and opted to bat in their Super 12 game.

Zimbabwe are playing an unchanged XI from their last match against Scotland. South African captain Temba Bavuma said he would have bowled first anyway, probably keeping ...

Brother Krunal’s I-M-Possible motto; thrill of taking the game deep like ‘Mahi’ & magical last six months: Hardik Pandya’s star turn

What’s the one line said by his brother Krunal that Hardik Pandya will carry with him all his life? “In the word impossible there is the word I-M-Possible.” Pandya recalled how those words spoken by his brother would remain with him till his last breath. Pandya would recall this after walking back from the mixed zone, post India’s sensational four wicket win over Pakistan. Pandya’s contribution to the win was immense, though his role took a backstage after Virat Kohli’s heroics. Had he not been there, things would have been different. He was pushing Kohli to keep at it and giving hope to the man, who was carrying a billion people’s hopes. His own 40 runs and three wickets went unnoticed in the frenzied celebration post Kohli’s heroics. The Baroda all-rounder later revealed that he was...

Virat Kohli is a legend, I found the criticism against him amusing: Brett Lee | Cricket News – Times of India

MELBOURNE: Keeping Virat Kohli down for too long is well-nigh impossible, reckoned Brett Lee just days before the T20 World Cup while expressing his surprise over the criticism of the maestro's lean run. Speaking to PTI, the former Australian speed merchant said that a legend like Kohli can't be kept down for too long. His words proved to be prophetic as Kohli announced his second coming with a magnificent 82 to take India home by four wickets against arch-rivals Pakistan on Sunday. "I found it quite amusing when someone of the calibre of Virat Kohli was attacked. Those who had attacked Kohli didn't have a look at his records and his performances in the three formats of the game," Lee said during an interaction organized by Legends League Cricket. "There are times when you don't get hun...

Kohli swat flick: The shot that’ll rank on top alongside Sachin Tendulkar’s six off Shoaib Akhtar

How many World Cup sixes by a modern-day Indian batsman can you call iconic and will remember forever and a day? Sachin Tendulkar’s thump over point of Shoaib Akhtar, for sure. MS Dhoni’s thunderous wallop to cap off a perfect Wankhede night. Yuvraj Singh’s six-orgy off Stuart Broad, perhaps. Anything else? Right on top, alongside  Sachin, will sit Virat Kohli’s “freaky” swat-flick of a six against Haris Rauf at MCG. It’s a variation of a mutant that he had created in the first place from a regular flick. A couple of years ago, Sunil Gavaskar had predicted to this newspaper how Kohli was going to evolve even further with that shot and target newer areas. “It’s because he now wants to cover not just square-leg but wants to use that shot to target the full arc from fine-leg to wide long-o...
