Bangladesh’s Shoriful declared fit for second West Indies Test | Cricket News – Times of India

DHAKA: The underperforming Bangladesh cricket team received a boost Monday when bowler Shoriful Islam was declared fit and drafted into the squad for the second and final Test against the West Indies. The left-arm pacer will leave for St Lucia on Monday to join the Bangladesh squad for the match, which starts Friday. The 21-year-old has played four Tests for Bangladesh since making his debut in April 2021. The Under-19 World Cup winner missed the second Test against Sri Lanka in May and the first Test against the West Indies last week with a hand injury. Bangladesh lost the first Test against the hosts by seven wickets in Antigua to go 1-0 down in the series. if(typeof window !== 'undefined') { window.TimesApps = window.TimesApps || {}; const { TimesA...

Sri Lanka thrash Bangladesh by 10 wickets in second Test to win series | Cricket News – Times of India

DHAKA: Asitha Fernando finished with a career-best 6-51 as Sri Lanka thrashed hosts Bangladesh by 10 wickets in the second Test on Friday to win the series 1-0. The visitors bowled out Bangladesh for 169 runs in their second innings with the 24-year-old playing a starring role at Dhaka's Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium. Oshada Fernando then hit an unbeaten 21 to ease Sri Lanka to a devastating win. Play had resumed on the fifth and final day with the hosts at a precarious 34-4 and Sri Lanka upped the pressure when Kasun Rajitha bowled Mushfiqur Rahim for 23 in the eighth over. Shakib Al Hasan (58) and Liton Das (52) then held on through the first session with a mix of caution and aggression. Shakib's counter-attack saw him hit Rajitha for three fours in one over, forcing Sri Lank...

2nd Test: Bangladesh must defy injuries to win decisive Test against Sri Lanka | Cricket News – Times of India

DHAKA: Hosts Bangladesh hope that team spirit will propel them to victory in the series-deciding second Test against Sri Lanka from Monday with their four frontline bowlers all out injured. Bowlers from both teams struggled to make an impact on all five days of the drawn first Test in Chittagong. But the wicket at Dhaka's Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium is expected to offer some assistance and no Test has been drawn at the ground since 2016. If Bangladesh, who enjoyed the upper hand in the first Test, are to get a result they will do so with their bowling stocks badly depleted. Off-spinner Nayeem Hasan, who claimed 6-105 in the first innings of the first Test, was the latest to be ruled out with a finger injury on Friday. The hosts are also without Taskin Ahmed, Mehidy Hasan and Shoriful...

Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal extends T20I break | Cricket News – Times of India

DHAKA: Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal said Thursday he would prolong his break from Twenty20 internationals for at least another six months, adding to speculation over his future in the short format. Tamim is one of Bangladesh's greatest batting assets and has captained the one-day international side for the past two years. But he has not played a 20-over international since March 2020 and withdrew his name from last year's World Cup to give younger players an opportunity. Bangladesh failed to win at the tournament and also suffered a clean-sweep series loss against Pakistan at home in November. The team's top-order struggles have sparked calls for Tamim's return, but he made clear on Thursday that his priorities were elsewhere. "There were a few discussions over my T20 career in the las...

ACT hockey: Confident India start as overwhelming favourites against Japan in semifinal | Hockey News – Times of India

DHAKA: Back to their best after a slow start, defending champions and Olympic bronze-medallist India would start as overwhelming favourites against Asian Games gold winner Japan in the semifinal of the Asian Champions Trophy men's hockey tournament here on Tuesday. The Manpreet Singh-led side's confidence must be sky high as they had thrashed Japan 6-0 in their last round-robin match and come Tuesday, India would definitely fancy another big win en route to the title clash. Having said that, India will need to guard against complacency as any slip-up could spoil all their hardwork. India ended the round-robin stage of the five-nation tournament at the top of the standings with 10 points, ahead of Korea (6), Pakistan (5), Japan (5) and hosts Bangladesh (0). But the start was far from ide...

Asian Champions Trophy: Visa issues force Pakistan to leave without goalkeepers | Hockey News – Times of India

KARACHI: Pakistan hockey squad has left for Dhaka to take part in the Asian Champions Trophy without any goalkeeper in their line-up due to visa issues. Asif Bajwa, the secretary of the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF), said both the goalkeepers in the Pakistan camp, Amjad Ali and Mazhar Abbas, were not issued visas for Bangladesh. "Because of the unusual situation the squad has left for Dhaka without any goalkeepers," Bajwa said. He said that as an emergency measure, the PHF has decided to send the two goalkeepers who recently represented Pakistan in the Junior World Cup in India -- Abdullah and Waqar. "Since they have got Bangladesh visas we are sending them now to Dhaka as we can't take any more risks of waiting for visas to arrive for the senior goalkeepers," he said. Interestingly ...
