For ‘senior’ Shafali, another World Cup opportunity

At 16, Shafali Verma was India’s highest run scorer in her first senior T20 World Cup in 2020. Seven months earlier, she had become the youngest to feature in a T20 International at the age of 15. And so when she was caught behind by Alyssa Healy, in the third ball of an unsuccessful chase, while trying to go for a boundary, it was just seen as an off day for one of the most promising young cricketers. Cut to three years later, watching her lead India in the maiden U19 Women’s T20 World Cup final shouldn’t come as a surprise. However, the journey since the 2020 World Cup hasn’t been as smooth as many believed it would be for Shafali. Sunday presents an opportunity for Shafali to create happy memories of an ICC event. With over 2,000 runs in 74 games, Shafali has had a mixed run with the...

Breathless 60 minutes of India-England produce an entertaining 0-0 draw 

The match ended the way it began: a shot, a save and the attacker holding his head in disbelief, puzzled at how his goal-bound attempt was kept out. But Nicholas Bandurak wasn’t the only one left wondering. After the end of a breathless 60 minutes, players on both sides of the pitch, the two dugouts and the four overflowing stands were all equally astonished. The match that had everything – breezy runs towards the opponent’s circle, a dozen penalty corners, a glut of cards, a defender left with a bloody face, an attacker hobbling out clutching his hamstring, a disallowed goal and a goal-line clearance right at the final hooter – ended with nothing. After serving goal fests in their previous four encounters, the law of averages finally caught up with India and England as they played out ...

‘Aap IPL khelte hain, wahaan par aapko thakaan nahi hoti? (You play IPL, you don’t get tired there?’: Gavaskar questions Team India’s concept of workload management

Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has made a scathing attack on Team India’s ‘workload management’ concept following their exit from the T20 World Cup in the semifinals. Gavaskar said he can’t understand why the senior players talk about the workload management, when they are playing for India, they never questions it during the Indian Premier League (IPL). “Aap IPL khelte hain, poora season khelte hain, wahan aap travelling karte hain… sirf pichhla IPL 4 centres me hua tha, baaki sab jagah aap idhar-udhar daudte rehte hain.

We can call them chokers, says Kapil Dev after India’s T20 World Cup exit | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Legendary all-rounder Kapil Dev has labelled the current Indian team as "chokers" after its elimination from the T20 World Cup following a 10-wicket drubbing by England in the second semifinal in Adelaide. The heavy defeat on Thursday marked India's fifth knockout loss in the last six World Cups. "I will not go into the details and slam them because these are the same players who have gotten us a lot of respect in the past but yes, we can call them chokers. That's okay. There is no denying it -- after coming so close, they choke," Kapil told ABP News. The 1983 World Cup-winning skipper, however, said fans should not be too critical of the team's performance in the semifinals.

Former India World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev has says the current team can be termed as chokers owing to their recent track record in knockout games at the world tournaments.

T20 World Cup: BCCI to seek Rahul Dravid, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli’s views before deciding future course of action

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will hold a meeting with coach Rahul Dravid, captain Rohit Sharma and ex-skipper Virat Kohli before deciding the future course of action vis-à-vis the T20 side following the 10-wicket defeat to England in the semifinal of the T20 World Cup on Thursday. A board official said the next step will be taken only after hearing Dravid and the two players once they return from Australia. “We will call a meeting and discuss the roadmap for our T20 team,” the official told The Indian Express. “We don’t want to take any decision in haste. Let team management and players present their point of view first; the board will decide how to go about it later.” After India’s embarrassing exit from the tournament, the arguments in favour of rebooting the team...

‘Devastated, gutted, hurt’: Team India players react after England spoil the party Down Under

Team India players took to social media platforms to express their disappointment after England rolled over India in a 10-wicket win on Thursday and set up a T20 World Cup final against Pakistan. Set 169 to win, England reached its target with four overs to spare as openers Alex Hales (86 not out) and Jos Buttler (80 not out) decimated the Indian bowlers. The English openers silenced the 40,000-strong pro-India crowd by scoring 170 runs off just 96 deliveries. It was also the highest England opening stand in T20 cricket and the highest opening stand in all T20 World Cups. After the disappointing loss, India’s head coach Rahul Dravid admitted that the result was a “disappointment” for the Rohit Sharma-led unit.

‘Ghar ka ek hi buzurg hona chahiye, saat buzurg nahi’ (There should only be one leader in the team, not seven): Ajay Jadeja

Former India player Ajay Jadeja has made a scathing attack on Team India’s captain Rohit Sharma following India’s 10-wicket loss in the semifinals against England in the T20 World Cup on Thursday. Jadeja said the ageing side is also one of the major factor in India’s World Cup debacle. “Ghar ka ek hi buzurg hona chahiye, saat buzurg honge toh bhi dikkat hai. (There should only be one leader in the team. If there are 7, it would be difficult),” Ajay Jadeja was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz. Jadeja also questioned Rohit Sharma’s captaincy before the lead up to the World Cup. “Main ek baat bolunga jo chubhegi agar Rohit Sharma sunenge, agar team banaani hai kisi captain ko, toh usko saare saal team ke saath rehna padta hai.

Watch: Rohit Sharma in tears after India’s loss to England in T20 World Cup

India suffered heartbreak at the T20 World Cup yet again, losing to England by 10 wickets in the second semifinal in Adelaide on Thursday. After the match, the cameras caught Indian skipper Rohit Sharma wiping away tears as he looked devastated after the loss. He was then calmed down by head coach Rahul Dravid. It was another debilitating loss for India in a major ICC tournament, their second 10-wicket loss in the space of one year in the same tournament.

Conservative India needs T20 reboot: Rohit, Rahul, Kohli misfits as Top 3

When England captain Jos Buttler walloped the ball over long-on, over Virat Kohli’s head, for the match-winning hit in the T20 World Cup semi-final, commentator Ravi Shastri would scream, “It’s over Kohli”. He meant the ball, but it also could be said about the campaign and the old warhorse’s dream of winning an ICC T20 World Cup. It’s over Kohli, it’s over, Rohit Sharma, and it’s over, Rahul Dravid. The time has come to reboot the T20 team, with youngsters and a bolder approach in the management. Not because these fresh faces would be capable immediately, but because it’s clear that this aging team can’t. A country can ache over a mythical past culturally if it so chooses; it can’t afford to do it in sports. As that adage goes, if you don’t let go, be dragged. India’s fate in the World...

T20 World Cup: ‘Buttler & Hales way to hot tonight, India clueless with the ball’

Alex Hales (86) and Jos Buttler (80) produced commanding fifties during their unbroken opening stand of 170 as England made a mockery of the 169 run-chase against India in the T20 semifinal at Adelaide on Thursday. Such was their dominance that the Three Lions romped home with four overs to spare. It was a tough day for India’s bowlers as they couldn’t take a single wicket. England seemed to have saved their best for the grand stage as they reduced the semifinal to a lop-sided affair, courtesy a splendid bowling effort which they complemented with some breathtaking stroke-making.

IND vs ENG Emotional Rollercoaster: Hardik squashes England plans; Kohli peps himself up & Rohit’s timing is way off

Everyone should have a friend like Hardik Pandya. Someone who would be a calming influence in any crisis. So there was Hardik in a tense huddle with a broad smile on his face. Once again, Virat Kohli was the main speaker in the pre-match team huddle. He did the same against Pakistan too. He ended his passionate monologue with his right handed karate chop landing on his open left palm to make a point. But it was Hardik’s war cry that dispersed the tight circle. Before that he was in his sleeveless vest, the tattoos shining in the sun, talking to Nasser Hussain.
