India vs Ireland 2nd T20 Match Live Streaming: When and where to watch IND vs IRE live?

India vs Ireland (IND v IRE), 2nd T20 Match Live Streaming: India will be hoping for clear weather and improved performances from rookies like Umran Malik when it clashes with Ireland in the second and final T20, on Tuesday. The rain had reduced the series-opener to 12-overs a side contest and it could well be another shortened game considering a rather gloomy forecast for match day. Ruturaj Gaikwad did not come out to bat on Sunday due to a calf niggle and he could be the only change in the playing eleven if the opener doesn’t regain full fitness.

Kyle Mayers heads West Indies turnabout to lead Bangladesh by 106

West Indies started the day 167 runs behind Bangladesh and finished it 106 runs ahead in the second Test at Daren Sammy Stadium here. All-rounder Kyle Mayers on Saturday led the turnaround with a chanceless and unbeaten 126 runs, easily the highest score by either side after two days.

Winner of the first Test in Antigua in just over three days, West Indies was well on course to clinch the short series.

Da Silva was 26 not out after facing 106 balls. Brathwaite and Campbell, from a shared 67...

Sri Lanka vs Australia: Glenn Maxwell’s Test hopes on the rise despite deteriorating ‘baggy green’

The “baggy green” cap awarded to Australian cricketer Glenn Maxwell on his Test debut has completely fallen apart after an extended spell in his closet, the all-rounder said ahead of a potential test return in the upcoming series against Sri Lanka. The 33-year-old, who played the last of his seven Tests against Bangladesh five years ago, was added to Australia’s Test squad as injury cover for middle order batsman Travis Head. The baggy green is presented to Australian players when they make their Test debut and they receive just one for their entire career. “I took it out last year and had a look at it and it was deteriorating and I thought ‘that’s not a good sign’,” Maxwell told reporters. “My wife took it out yesterday and it had completely fallen apart. She said ‘I don’t think I can ...

‘Distasteful’: Broadcasters slammed for showing late Shane Warne’s advert during England vs New Zealand Test

Cricket fans on Friday slammed the ‘distasteful’ Shane Warne advertisement shown during the coverage of the third Test match between England and New Zealand. Shane Warne appeared in the Advanced Hair Studio video – which has now been pulled from Sky’s programming. When the ad came on during a break of Sky Sports’ coverage on Day 2 of the Third Test at Headingley, fans were understandably left feeling uncomfortable.

After 1996 World Cup boycott, Murali chucking row, finally Aussie cricketers win Lankan hearts

There was a time when the relationship between Sri Lanka and Australia hit the rock bottom. In 1996, Australia refused to play its opening match of the World Cup in Colombo, citing security fears after a bomb exploded in the Sri Lankan capital the previous month killing more than 80 people. Later that year, Australia refused to play a two-match Test cricket series in Sri Lanka in August. "We're generally the enemy" 😅 The scenes in Colombo after the fifth ODI were unreal and left Glenn Maxwell and the Aussies stunned as fans thanked them for touring 🥰 #SLvAUS pic.twitter.com/Xugt5KVmyX — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) June 24, 2022 Three years later, in 1999, Muttiah Muralitharan “chucking” row boiled over at Adelaide Oval in 199, when play was held up for 12 minutes after the Sri Lank...

Cold, slow pitches, beanies, hand-warmers: Ireland coach lists out what awaits India

Heinrich Malan began his cricketing journey in South Africa, making 10 first class and nine List-A appearances for the Northerns cricket team between 2005 to 2009. He then moved to New Zealand, switching from playing to coaching as he managed the Central Stags and later, the Auckland Aces. During this time, he was also involved in several projects with the New Zealand A and the senior’s men’s national team, including their tour of England last summer that ended with the World Test Championship Final win. Ajaz Patel, who took a 10-for against India, has credited Malan for helping him hone his ‘match awareness and the understanding of the game’.

‘Don’t expect people to stay quiet’: Kapil Dev blasts Virat Kohli on his lean patch

The long and tedious wait for Virat Kohli’s 75th international century dragged on for past two and half years. Since he has scored his last international century, Kohli became a father, forsook captaincy, and the halo around his batting has just begun to fade. Former India captain Kapil Dev has lashed out at Virat Kohli’s poor run of form. “I haven’t played cricket as much as Virat Kohli. But sometimes you may not have played enough cricket but you can look to figure things out. Either that, or we just cannot criticise such great players. We have played cricket and we understand the game and after that, they have to improve their thought process, not ours. If you prove us wrong, we will like it,” the legendary all-rounder said on Uncut. “If you don’t score runs, we feel there is some fa...

Ranji Trophy helped me find my lost rhythm, says Cheteshwar Pujara ahead of England Test

Cheteshwar Pujara didn’t have a decent run in the Ranji Trophy. He managed to score only 191 runs in five innings, while playing for Saurashtra. The defending champions were knocked in the league stage, and Pujara was not picked by any IPL teams during the mega auction. The IPL snub proved to be a blessing for Pujara. He played for Sussex in the County and scored a couple of double tons and two hundred – 170*, 203, 109, 201* – in seven inning games at an average of 143.

How the cover drive could make or break Shubman Gill’s tour of England

In a short video of India’s net sessions before the tour game against Leicestershire, Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma are shown batting next to each other. Gill, who would most likely open with the captain in the Edgbaston Test, watched Sharma lean into a drive in awe. He tried to reprise the stroke, but was beaten, as the ball was not quite as full as he had anticipated. He shrugged his head pensively, observed Sharma for a second or two, and then leaned into a drive himself, this time middling the ball and you could hear the clang that echoed when the ball crashed into one of the poles, and scattered applause from his teammates, or perhaps the support staff. The same stroke that produced two different outcomes sums up his Test career too. For most part of his 19 Test innings, he has ...

Ranji Trophy final: Mumbai’s Yashasvi Jaiswal shows maturity to keep MP bowlers at bay

“Of course, we knew that he (Kumar Kartikeya) would bowl the first over. They were doing some tricks, like trying some stuff mentally, which I’ve seen them doing earlier,” said Yashasvi Jaiswal. “For example, the ’keeper goes far back and the fast bowler walks up to his run-up but all along we knew that Kartikeya is going to bowl. We were literally ready.” Madhya Pradesh had tried to surprise the Mumbai openers on day one of the Ranji Trophy final by opening the bowling with the left-arm spinner but Jaiswal wasn’t getting flustered. As soon as the early nerves settled, he hit Kartikeya for a couple of boundaries which got him out of the attack for a while. Under a heavy cloud cover, with the MP seamers making the ball jag around, Jaiswal yet again provided solidity to the Mumbai batting...
