Australia vs England, T20 World Cup 2022 Match Live Streaming Details: Once promising a clash of favourites, the Super 12 showdown between Australia and England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday now appears more of a desperate battle for survival for two humbled teams. Australia, thrashed by New Zealand in their opener, have looked a shadow of the side that triumphed in the United Arab Emirates last year, with captain Aaron Finch’s batting struggles topping concerns. Whether England have the means to exploit Australia’s vulnerable position is no certainty following their morale-sapping defeat to Ireland at the MCG on Wednesday. Barring a fiery 3-34 from express paceman Mark Wood and solid death bowling, Jos Buttler’s side were mostly poor in the field and their batsmen culpable ...

Watch: Zimbabwe fans celebrate after team defeats Pakistan in T20 World Cup

The often overlooked Zimbabwe team shook the cricketing world to the core on Thursday night when they defeated Pakistan by 1 run at the Perth stadium in their T20 World Cup encounter. The nation was watching with bated breaths as the last over began with Pakistan needing 11 runs from it. After getting tonked for a 3 and a four with fuller balls, bowler Brad Evans adjusted to hit the hard length for three of the final 4 balls. The result? Zimbabweans were screaming their heads off and lying on the ground in joy. The fourth was a rasping seamer that beat the bat. Dot ball. The fifth, another hard length, was weakly shovelled to mid-off by Nawaz, and Mohammad Wasim Jr sunk to the ground. He was not on strike, and probably knew the game was up. It was. The final ball was the surprise fuller...

Sikandar Raza’s sleight of hand & twists of fate help Zimbabwe sting Pakistan at WC

By the time Sikandar Raza dragged his weary body to collect the man of the match award, he was both emotionally and physically drained. Beads of sweat were dripping from his brow, eyes were moist with tears of joy and words stuttered and stumbled from his mouth. He would pause between sentences so that he could catch his breath, his gaze would scatter, and he would lose the drift of a sentence midway through it. A riot of emotions had seized him. “I think I’m lost for words. My throat’s dry, probably because of all the emotions,” he would say. The match was straight out of his sweetest dream. The 38-year-old hoarded nine runs, a useful contribution in a match Zimbabwe snuck home by a run, picked up the wickets of top-scorer Shan Masood, Haider Ali and Shadab Khan with his “mystery spin”...

Requests for photos of Kohli, fan-boy moments and better media coverage: How playing Team India at the SCG was a surreal experience for the Dutch

The Netherlands were outclassed by India on Thursday but playing the Rohit Sharma-captained star-studded side in front of 40,000 people at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) in a T20 World Cup match was a surreal experience for the Dutch players. For some like India-born Dutch opener Vikramjit Singh, whose family left Punjab to escape insurgency in the mid-1980s, seeing the adulation Virat Kolhi received was like a fan-boy moment. Ahead of the game, the number of requests Singh received for pictures of Kohli outnumbered the good luck messages for him. “I have been getting lots of messages today and most of them are about wishing ‘hi’ to Virat rather than wishing me well for the game. Everyone was watching back home and they all were excited as I was,” Singh said after the game. Singh exper...

I had already said Pakistan will come back this week. And India will come back next week after playing semi-final. Voh bhi koi tees-maarkhan nahi hai: Shoaib Akhtar

Former Pakistan players Shoaib Akhtar, Aaqib Javed, Moin Khan Waqar Younis and Misbah-ul-Haq have come out strongly after Pakistan’s loss to Zimbabwe. Akhtar blamed the entire set up from Babar Azam the captain to Rameez Raja the PCB chairman. Aaqib Javed said he was shocked to see some of the techniques of the batsmen. And Moin Khan said it seems they never prepared for the bouncy tracks of Australia as they lacked basic technique. Akhtar would also add that India would be out of the world cup at the semi-final stage. Waqar felt the Pakistan openers were batting with a fear that team would collapse if they get out and Misbah questioned if there was any game plan to the bowling.

When I get out in nets during simulation, I don’t bat again: Suryakumar Yadav | Cricket News – Times of India
