Cricket World Cup: New Zealand put down early marker, Rachin Ravindra & Devon Conway hit tons as holders England thrashed in opener

[ad_1] Devon Conway was sitting in the corner of the press room, his toes peeping out of the slip-ons that had ‘Black Caps’ big and bold. On the dais, his co-wrecker in the 273-run partnership Rachin Ravindra, who loves sprinkling “it was pretty cool” in most answers, was addressing the media. When someone asked how it felt that two persons who have their roots away from New Zealand – Conway in South Africa, and him in India – combined to give defending champions England a 9-wicket hiding in the first game of the World Cup, Ravindra would play it cool: “Well, we are both Kiwis, now”.On the sidelines, Conway, who was intently listening to his younger teammate, would murmur: “My Man!”. And when Ravindra finished his media interaction, Conway and Matt Henry, who was sitting beside him, woul...

World Cup 2023: Grant Elliott hopes New Zealand can bury the ghosts of 2015 & 2019

[ad_1] Unlike anyone else who was present at the Eden Park in Auckland on March 24, 2015, Grant Elliot doesn’t remember any of the conversations he had during the World Cup semifinal against South Africa. Especially not while batting in the middle. Well, maybe one. “The only conversation I remember is when (Daniel) Vettori came down with 5 to win off 2 balls, and said ‘it’s up to you now, you need to take both deliveries’. Yes, my heart started pumping!” he tells The Indian Express. As he tapped gloves with Vettori and went back to take the strike, a thought took over. Not that it was Dale Steyn, arguably the greatest fast bowler of the 21st century, who stood in his way to score those five runs in two official attempts. But that, “If I hit a boundary here, I won’t be going to my sister’...

Cricket World Cup 2023: England, New Zealand kick off extravaganza with the ‘Greatest final of all time’ still fresh in memory

[ad_1] As Eoin Morgan, England’s ODI World Cup-winning captain-turned pundit, walked into the captain’s roundtable in Ahmedabad, Ravi Shastri asked him whether he had dispensed any advice to his successor Jos Buttler. Giggling, Morgan replied in jest: “I told him don’t mess it up.” But assuming a graver voice, he said; “I just told Jos Buttler to be Jos Buttler. Be yourself, do not copy anybody.” Buttler’s men embellished England’s ICC trophy cabinet by winning the T20 World Cup last year, and have lived by Morgan’s relentless-aggression ideals. But they land in India without the aura of defending white-ball champions in both formats, with niggles, concerns and without the ruthless quest for the title Morgan’s men displayed. Post the transformational Morgan era, England have won only hal...
