T20 World Cup, India vs Netherlands: Suryakumar Yadav, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma hit half-centuries as India register second straight win to go top of group | Cricket News – Times of India

SYDNEY: There was one moment in the game when the Netherlands discovered that the difference in class between the two sides couldn’t be bridged merely by bowling good lines. Their varied attack had somehow kept a tight leash on India’s top order on a slowish pitch where the ball sometimes tended to stop. The surface was also worn down a bit by the South Africa-Bangladesh contest earlier in the day. Predictions of India’s masterly domination over an Associate team seemed fanciful when at the end of three overs, only nine runs had been scored and KL Rahul had fallen to a dubious LBW decision which was not reviewed. With Rohit Sharma looking to hit his way out of trouble and Kohli calmly biding his time, at the end of 10 overs India were merely 67/1, a middling start at best, even by the l...

Requests for photos of Kohli, fan-boy moments and better media coverage: How playing Team India at the SCG was a surreal experience for the Dutch

The Netherlands were outclassed by India on Thursday but playing the Rohit Sharma-captained star-studded side in front of 40,000 people at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) in a T20 World Cup match was a surreal experience for the Dutch players. For some like India-born Dutch opener Vikramjit Singh, whose family left Punjab to escape insurgency in the mid-1980s, seeing the adulation Virat Kolhi received was like a fan-boy moment. Ahead of the game, the number of requests Singh received for pictures of Kohli outnumbered the good luck messages for him. “I have been getting lots of messages today and most of them are about wishing ‘hi’ to Virat rather than wishing me well for the game. Everyone was watching back home and they all were excited as I was,” Singh said after the game. Singh exper...

Woes for KL, Rohit’s charmed life, all come to see Kohli bat

As Paul van Meekeren clubbed the last ball of the match to the straight boundary to make it three successive fours off Arshdeep Singh and punched gloves with his partner Shariz Ahmad, the Netherlands last pair had taken 22 runs off the final two overs. However, even as the Dutch went down in a blaze of hits, the chase had never taken off on a slow Sydney wicket, into its fourth innings of the day. Bhuvneshwar Kumar had begun India’s defence of 179 with two consecutive maidens; the spinners Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin had then tied down the Netherlands middle order completely, so much so that only one of the Dutch top six managed a strike-rate above run a ball. Things had cruelly unravelled for Netherlands after they had kept the stars of the Indian top order, Rohit Sharma and Vi...

Really enjoying batting with Virat Kohli: Suryakumar Yadav

Suryakumar Yadav scored a blistering 51 off just 25 balls as India defeated Netherlands by 56 runs to make it 2 wins out of 2 in their World Cup campaign. The swashbuckling batter was adjudged player of the match and talked about his time in the middle. “I was just trying to express myself when I went in to bat. The situation was very simple, I just had to up the tempo at that time. I took one ball today (to get going), but the message was loud and clear. We had to get about 8-10 an over and get a total which our bowlers could defend easily. Very happy with the way things went,” he said. Talking about his partnership with Virat Kohli, he said, “Really enjoying batting with him. The thoughts are very clear when we both are batting. If I get few boundaries earlier then our partnership nee...

Family fled Punjab in the ’80s, 19-yr-old at T20 World Cup for Netherlands

On a cold December night in 1984, Khushi Cheema returned home and asked his wife to pack their belongings. The following day, the Sikh family from village Cheema Khurd near Jalandhar boarded a train for Delhi. During the 52-km ride, 5-year-old Harpreet kept asking his father where they were going. He only got a smile as an answer. “I can never forget that night and the next morning. It still feels like it happened yesterday. My father took that decision to keep his family safe after the rise of insurgency in Punjab during the mid-1980s,” Harpreet tells The Indian Express over phone from Amstelveen in the Netherlands. Cut to the present, Khushi Cheema is back on his farm in Jalandhar, and Harpreet is running a transportation company in Amstelveen. His 19-year-old grandson, Vikramjit Sing...

Giant Pakistani who troubled Smith impresses Kohli, Rohit

Mohammed Irfan Jr. was a bit disappointed after India’s two-hour net session at the Sydney Cricket Ground. “Virat Kohli chaale gayein? Rohit bhai ke saath selfie le liya, Kohli ka ek mil jaata,” the six feet six inch right arm pacer’s sadness was palpable while speaking to PTI. The Pakistan-born pacer, who has made Sydney his home for last three years, was one of the highlights of the Indian team’s net session ahead of its T20 World Cup match against the Netherlands. Bowling with a wrong-footed action, Irfan Jr. looked like a right-arm prototype of former international bowler Sohail Tanveer. Because of his height, the 27-year-old’s natural length was back of good length area and he effortlessly got the deliveries to rear up. Dinesh Karthik was troubled by the bounce but he earned praise...
