Won’t comment on Morgan issue at this time: KKR CEO | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Even as it emerged that their captain Eoin Morgan, along with his English compatriot Jos Buttler, are under an investigation by the English Cricket Board (ECB) after their alleged racist tweets, mocking Indians, surfaced on the social media, the Kolkata Knight Riders have refrained from commenting on the issue, for now. KKR CEO Venky Mysore, though, did assert that the organisation has "zero tolerance for any sort of discrimination." "We don't know enough about it to comment at this time. Let's wait for the process to be completed to get all the facts before we jump to any conclusions. Just to reiterate, the Knight Riders organisation has "zero tolerance" for any sort of discrimination," Mysore told TOI on Wednesday. Morgan is England's white-ball skipper, while Buttler is the n...

BCCI may push back IPL final to October 15 in order to reduce double headers | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The BCCI brass is exploring the option of using the full window of Indian Premier League by pushing the final back to October 15 in order to reduce the number of double headers in the UAE's searing September heat. As PTI had first reported, the tournament will start on Sunday, September 19 and while the final was tentatively planned for October 10, the BCCI as well as the Emirates Cricket Board are mulling stretching the lucrative T20 event till October 15. "September 15 to October 15 is the window. Initially, BCCI was thinking of having 10 double headers. But, in third and fourth week of September, having 10 afternoon matches can be physically exhausting for player in such short window," a BCCI source told PTI on the condition of anonymity. "So if October 15, which is a Frid...

Kyle Jamieson recalls ‘interesting experience’ of leaving IPL abruptly | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson says leaving the IPL amid the raging pandemic in India was an "interesting" experience but he remained confident that the "good people" around him would ensure a safe passage to England for his first UK tour. Jamieson, along with New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, chose to fly to Maldives from Delhi before they were to take a flight to the UK as they felt unsafe in India's national capital, then the hotspot of COVID-19 in the country. "It was an interesting one. It is not something that you could plan for. We were sort of informed right through. We had some pretty good people around us, the BCCI and IPL teams," said Jamieson in a media interaction on Sunday. The lanky pacer plays for RCB in the IPL.

‘Chinna Thala’ turned our hearts inside out: CSK recalls Suresh Raina’s knock | Cricket News – Times of India

CHENNAI (Tamil Nadu): Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Sunday recalled Suresh Raina's ferocious innings in the knock-out match against King XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014.

Sehwag's innings was studded with 12 fours and eight sixes and the right-handed batsman scored his runs at a strike rate of 210.34.

Raina, who came in to bat at number 3, went all guns blazing right from the start and smashed KXIP bowlers out of the park. CSK on Sunday shared a picture of Raina reliving the m...

ECB not changing India Test series schedule to accommodate IPL a missed opportunity: Mark Butcher | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: Former opener Mark Butcher feels the ECB should have agreed to the BCCI's request to change the Test series schedule to accommodate the remaining games of IPL as it would have given the England Board the leverage to get top Indian players for its 'Hundred' tournament. The Indian Board had informally made a request to shift the five-match Test series between India and England, starting August 4, by a week in order to accommodate the remaining 31 IPL games but it has not met with any favourable response from England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). "Well, listen. I take a deep breath here ... as does the nation. I think it's a massive missed opportunity," Butcher said during the latest Wisden Cricket Weekly Podcast.

MS Dhoni’s best may come in 2nd half of IPL: Deepak Chahar | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Pace bowler Deepak Chahar has said that veteran wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni may hit form with the bat if the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) season resumes. Dhoni managed only 37 runs in seven matches while CSK were dominant and placed second on the points table when the season was indefinitely suspended due to Coronavirus pandemic. "A batsman cannot bat the same way for 15-20 years. If any batsman hasn't played regular cricket before, it is never easy to just come to a competition of the level of IPL and start performing, it takes time," Chahar was quoted as saying by Sportskeeda. "He has always played the finisher's role, which is even tougher when you haven't played regular cricket. Even in the 2018 and 2019 IPL seasons, Dhoni bhai started a bit slowly by his standa...

Wriddhiman Saha subtly questions IPL bubble tightness, says UAE would have been better venue | Cricket News – Times of India

KOLKATA: Seasoned wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha has indicated that the bio-bubble for IPL 14 was not as foolproof as the one in UAE last year, becoming the first India player to publicly question, even if subtly, the tightness of the controlled environment. The 36-year-old Saha was among the players who contracted the dreaded virus before the IPL stumbled to an abrupt halt midway into its 14th season after multiple COVID-19 cases were reported in its bio-bubble. During an interview with PTI, Saha spoke about the bio-bubble breach in India and said it would have been better if the IPL was held in UAE, like last year. "It's the job of the stakeholders to assess it, but the only thing I would say is that there was not a single individual during our training in UAE (last year), not e...
