3rd T20I: In 5 Points – The tied game that gave India a series win | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: After a lackluster outing in the recently concluded T20 World Cup, Team India got back to winning ways with the third T20I against New Zealand in Napier ending in a tie due to incessant rain at par DLS score. On the back of their 65-run victory in the second T20I, India won the three-match series 1-0 after the first match was also washed out in Wellington. Chasing 161 for victory, India were 75-4 after nine overs when rain forced the players off the ground at McLean Park.

India vs New Zealand, 3rd T20I: Will Umran Malik and Sanju Samson get a chance? | Cricket News – Times of India

NAPIER: A drastic change in approach is need of the hour for India but question remains if the likes of Umran Malik and Sanju Samson will be tested in third and final T20 against New Zealand here on Tuesday. India were expected to try out a bunch of players after another World Cup debacle but if the team combination for the second T20 was any indication, they seemed reluctant to start with a clean slate.

What Suryakumar Yadav does, I can’t even dream of doing: Glenn Phillips | Cricket News – Times of India

MOUNT MAUNGANUI: He is a T20 ace in his own right but New Zealander Glenn Phillips says he can't even "dream" of pulling off some of the incredible shots that Suryakumar Yadav plays with ease. Surya, world No. 1 T20 batter, will square off against Phillips' New Zealand in the second game here at the Bay Oval, a ground where the Black caps dasher has fond memories of scoring a 46-ball hundred. "He (Surya) is absolutely incredible. The things that he does I wouldn't even dream of doing. I would love to try but we have very different games. The wrist strength that he's got to be able to hit balls for six in extremely awkward areas is a talent you rarely see," Phillips was quoted as saying in stuff.co.nz. Phillips also mentioned that the "high risk-high reward game" that is played by him an...

No favourites in ‘good to watch’ World Cup: Ross Taylor | Cricket News – Times of India

ADELAIDE (Australia): Former New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor says there are no clear favourites till now in a wide open T20 World Cup as conditions in Australia have kept a level playing field. Defending champions Australia bowed out of the tournament after England's win over Sri Lanka on Saturday, a result that made the Three Lions enter the semi-finals alongside New Zealand in Group 1. Less fancied teams had their moments in a cup of upsets from Namibia shocking Asian champions Sri Lanka in the opener to Ireland knocking out two-time champions West Indies in round one.

T20 World Cup: England trump New Zealand to stay alive | Cricket News – Times of India

BRISBANE: Clinical England rescued their Twenty20 World Cup campaign as they held their nerve to beat New Zealand by 20 runs at the Gabba in Brisbane on Tuesday. England, who had been facing almost certain elimination had they lost, moved into the top two in Group 1 along with their opponents with one round of matches to go. Only the top two reach the semi-finals.

Alex Hales also struck a half-century. England ward off Glenn Phill...

T20 World Cup: Wanted to take off quickly, run-out possibility was on mind, says Glenn Phillips on crouching at non-striker’s end

Glenn Phillips, the New Zealand batsman, has said that he decided to crouch like a sprinter in the crease at the non-striker’s end against Sri Lanka so that he could run faster, while keeping an eye on the bowler as the possibility of getting run out was also on his mind. “It was very much spur of the moment,” centurion Phillips said after New Zealand’s 65-run win in the T20 World Cup in Sydney. “I actually had my three-point start wrong, which my best mate’s going to probably give me a little bit of stick for later on. It’s supposed to be the other arm and other leg. “I guess the position was to be able to see the bowlers and take off as quick as possible 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 M...

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...

SYDNEY: With 15 runs on the board and the top three New Zealand batters back in the dugout, Glenn Phillips, who scored a match-winning century, says the only thing on his mind was to reach a competitive total. New Zealand were in all sorts of trouble before Phillips, who scored a 64-ball 104, and Daryl Mitchell (22) stitched an 84-run partnership as the Black Caps defeated Sri Lanka by 65 runs in the T20 World Cup. "Me and Daryll were really clear we wanted to be as positive as possible, and try and make the right positive choice," Phillips, who was adjudged the player of the match, said in the post-match presentation.

CHRISTCHURCH (New Zealand): Devon Conway showed why he will be New Zealand's key batter at the Twenty20 World Cup by top-scoring in an eight-wicket tri-series win over Bangladesh in Christchurch on Sunday. Conway batted with control for his unbeaten 70 off 51 balls as the Black Caps chased down 137-8 at Hagley Oval with 13 balls to spare.
