With his bouncers and slower balls, Curran 2.0 ready to torment India

On an April evening in 2019 at the Wankhede Stadium, Kieron Pollard was on the rampage. Every time Sam Curran, then just 20, ran in to bowl, one could almost sense the next six coming. Six of Pollard’s 10 sixes were hit off Curran’s left-arm medium-pace, which cost 54 runs in four overs. It was Curran’s maiden Indian Premier League season for then Kings XI Punjab and though he tried hard, he just didn’t have the pace and variations to escape punishment on a small ground. Three years later in the T20 World Cup, he has become England’s go-to death bowler, conceding a mere 34 runs from 41 deliveries in the last-four-over stage. In must-win games against New Zealand and Sri Lanka, Curran bowled two miserly overs each at the death, taking the crucial wicket of Glenn Phillips and giving away ...

Qatar minister accuses Germany of ‘double standards’ in World Cup criticism

Qatar’s foreign minister has accused Germany of “double standards” over its criticism of the World Cup host’s human rights record and has defended its summoning of the German ambassador, in a newspaper interview published on Monday. Qatar has faced intense criticism from human rights groups over its treatment of migrant workers, who along with other foreigners comprise the bulk of the country’s population. Qatar’s foreign ministry last month summoned the German ambassador over Interior Minister Nancy Faeser’s comments that a country’s human rights record should be factored into whether they are selected as World Cup host. “On the one side, the German population is misinformed by government politicians; on the other, the government has no problem with us when it comes to energy partnersh...

Rahul Dravid, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli give-up business class so that team’s pacers get rest and more leg-space

Cramped legs and stiff backs are an athlete’s biggest pre-competition enemy, but the Indian cricket team has gone the extra (air) mile to ensure its pace bowlers stay comfortable. At a T20 World Cup that has demanded breakneck air travel crisscrossing Australia, head coach Rahul Dravid and batting superstars Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have given up their designated business-class seats for the quicks — Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya — so that they get adequate legroom. This has helped them to rest and recover between games. “Before the tournament, we decided that since the pace bowlers clock the maximum mileage on field day in, day out, they need to stretch their legs,” a support staff member of the Indian team told The Indian Express on its arriva...

Mohammad Haris: A fearless six-hitter, Mr Google, Mohammad Yusuf lookalike

Inside a congested room of the Maazullah Khan Cricket Academy in Peshawar, a group of middle-aged men were scattered around a television set. Their shining eyes were fixed on a stubbled young man on the screen. He was fidgeting with his helmet, rehearsing his shots, tapping the turf a few times, as he waited breathlessly for the bowler to steam in. The moment arrived. Mohammad Haris, whose batting was the sole interest of the group, drove the first ball firmly to the extra cover fielder. Among the watching group was Pervez Khan, Haris’ childhood coach who narrated to The Indian Express how it was to watch his ward take on some of the fastest bowlers in the world on the biggest stage. “He looks in good touch, the feet are moving well,” Khan remembers telling his friends after the first s...

Shastri wants India to stick with ‘X-factor’ Pant against England

Former coach Ravi Shastri wants India to stick with Rishabh Pant in the T20 World Cup semifinal against England, saying the flashy wicketkeeper-batter will bring in the X-factor in the shorter boundaries of Adelaide Oval. India will take on England in the second semifinal in Adelaide on Thursday, and the former head coach believes that Pant is a match-winner and the right man for the finisher’s role. Pant, though, got out for just three in his only appearance in the showpiece, against Zimbabwe on Sunday. “Dinesh (Karthik) is a lovely team player. But when it comes to a game against England or New Zealand, just seeing their attack, I think you need a robust left-hander, who can turn it on and a match-winner and a left-hander,” Shastri told Star Sports after India defeated Zimbabwe in the...
