ISL: Anirudh Thapa’s Indian feat in Chennaiyin FC’s winning start | Football News – Times of India

Chennaiyin FC have always shown confidence in their Indian youngsters. And, at Tilak Maidan in Vasco on Tuesday, that confidence reaped dividends in a 2-1 winning start against Jamshedpur FC where 22-year-old Anirudh Thapa scored the first goal by an Indian player, and the fastest so far, of the Indian Super League season. The 52nd second strike was the mastermind of Rafael Crivellaro coupled with the quick run and cross from the wings by Esmael Goncalves to Player-of-the-Match Thapa who was at the right place in the box to guide it past Jamshedpur FC keeper TP Rehenesh. It was just the beginning of an open encounter with Owen Coyle’s Jamshedpur searching for an equaliser and his former wards in Chennaiyin looking for the second. Brazilian Crivellaro kept creating chances and finding th...

NEW DELHI: After a month's uncertainty over his fitness status, it has emerged Rohit Sharma may struggle to make it to Australia for the full Test series.

The NCA now reckons that the duo will need at least three weeks to be Test-match fit....
