We’ve to rectify our silly mistakes: Deepti Sharma | Cricket News – Times of India

NAVI MUMBAI: Star India all-rounder Deepti Sharma blamed their "silly mistakes", especially while fielding, for the nine-wicket defeat to Australia in the opening T20I of the five-match series here.

"The total was very good, but I think we could have fielded a bit better. We also gave away a few loose balls.

Bowler has the right to take bails off if non striker is leaving crease early: Glenn Phillips | Cricket News – Times of India

SYDNEY: "It's my responsibility to make sure that I'm in the crease and leave at the right time," said New Zealand batter Glenn Phillips, adding that the bowlers are well within their rights to take off the bails if the non-striker is backing up. During New Zealand's T20 World Cup match against Sri Lanka, towards the end of his innings Phillips was seen squatting in a sprinter's stance at the non-striker's end and the moment Lahiru Kumara released the delivery, he rushed towards the striker's end. "From a sprinter's start when you're trying not to be out of the crease as much as possible -- there's been a lot going around about Mankads and leaving the crease," Phillips said at the post-match press conference after New Zealand's win over Sri Lanka. "At the end of the day, it's my respons...
