Australia’s Kane Richardson out of Sri Lanka series with injury | Cricket News – Times of India

Test skipper Pat Cummins will however return to the side for the five-match ODI series beginning on Tuesday after recovering from a long-running injury. Richardson picked up his injury during the warm-up for the final Twenty20 international match but played Saturday's game before the severity was detected in a scan the next day.

Australia's ploy to open their attack with Glenn Maxwell (2-18) paid off with the off-spinner dismissing opener Danushka Gunathilaka in the first over.

Australia stick with quicks for Sri Lanka T20 opener | Cricket News – Times of India

Australia have recalled fast bowler Kane Richardson for Tuesday's T20 series opener against Sri Lanka and stuck with the three-pronged pace formula that won them their first World Cup last year. Richardson was selected ahead of namesake Jhye Richardson to replace rested Pat Cummins and join Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood in the attack in Colombo.

Aussie David Warner ‘feels the pain’ of Devon Conway after New Zealand opener dismissed by England’s Stuart Broad in Lord’s Test | Cricket News – Times of India

MELBOURNE: After New Zealand opener Devon Conway fell to England's pacer Stuart Broad on day one of the first Test at Lord's, Australian opener David Warner, who has been dismissed by the bowler numerous times, posted a message on social media expressing his sympathy for the Kiwi batter. Conway was dismissed for just three runs after being caught by Jonny Bairstow at the slips off a Broad delivery. "Devon Conway I feel your pain," posted the Aussie opener on Instagram. Notably, the great Aussie opener has been at receiving end of Broad's brutal pace many times. During the 2019 edition of the Ashes, Broad had dismissed Warner seven times out of his ten innings. In two of his dismissals, Warner was caught by Bairstow as well. Warner's run in that series was horrific, as he could score onl...

Warner may have got out for a golden duck in the team's previous IPL match against Punjab Kings, but he made vital contributions in the field. When asked about his outstanding fielding, Warner said, "There are two facets of the game for me - batting and fielding. I look to stop ones in the ring and take some catches near the boundary.

IPL 2022: Manjrekar calls to get rid of ‘completely redundant’ bails after Chahal-Warner incident | Cricket News – Times of India

NAVI MUMBAI: Former India batter Sanjay Manjrekar has called for getting rid of "completely redundant" bails in modern-day cricket after an incident featuring Yuzvendra Chahal and David Warner in Wednesday's IPL 2022 match between Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals at DY Patil Stadium. In the ninth over of Delhi's successful chase of 161, Warner had a huge slice of luck when on the last ball of the over, a leg break from Chahal went past his bat and brushed the leg stump. It was sufficient to light the stumps but not enough to dislodge one of the bails, which is a requirement for a clean bowled dismissal. Eventually, Warner was unbeaten at 52 and with Mitchell Marsh leading the chase with a 62-ball 89, Delhi got a much-needed win by eight wickets. "I've said this before as well, it's r...

Seamers rein in RR batsmen before Marsh takes charge to keep DC afloat in playoffs race

With pitches tiring in the Indian Premier League, it has become a bit tricky to decide what to do at the toss.

IPL 2022: Unstoppable Warner rubs salt into SRH wounds

Warner’s will, Powell’s power An indication of just how determined David Warner was against the side for which he’d made 4,000 runs came in his watchfulness against Bhuvneshwar Kumar early on. Into his second over, Bhuvneshwar was yet to concede a run. Big swing both ways and a line constantly threatening either the stumps or the outside edge; even without the deceptive changes of pace and length, he is a hard bowler to go after. He’d already toyed with Mandeep Singh in the game’s opening over. Warner was beaten too on the outside edge, and gave that spell the respect it deserved – he left alone a couple of deliveries and quietly defended two more. The fun began in the fourth over when Umran Malik came on. The young tearway has got the country excited with his extreme pace, and there wa...
