Don’t sell cricket, teach it: Javagal Srinath | Cricket News – Times of India

Former pacer not happy with mindset of a few private academies, wants KSCA to set up four centres in BengaluruBENGALURU: In 2002, when the Karnataka State Cricket Association Academy was launched at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, it was one of the first association-run academies in the country. The emphasis was on tapping rural talent and the outreach of infrastructure and coaches. But over the years, the purpose of the Academy has been diluted and it has been non-functional since the Covid-19 pandemic. With Karnataka failing to win a title across age groups both among men and women this season, former India pacer Javagal Srinath is of the opinion that the foundation at the academy-level has to be strengthened for the progress of the sport in the state. In an exclusive interview with TOI, S...

Ranji Trophy 2022: Where Karnataka lost the plot | Cricket News – Times of India

BENGALURU: As the Karnataka team exited the KSCA Alur stadium on Thursday evening after being humbled by Uttar Pradesh in the Ranji Trophy quarterfinals, dusk was settling in. The interplay between the elements resulted in a literal silver lining settling around a dark cloud as the team’s buses wended their way to the city. Sadly, there wasn’t much for Karnataka to take away from the match, barring the pacers’ performance in the first innings. Karnataka ended the season without a title – they also made an appearance in the final of the 20-over Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and reached the quarterfinal of the 50-over Vijay Hazare Trophy, beaten both times by Tamil Nadu – thereby suggesting that it is time for introspection. While looking ahead is important, it is essential to look back at what...

Ranji Trophy 2022: Karnataka skipper Manish Pandey rues batting fiasco | Cricket News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Karnataka skipper Manish Pandey looked heartbroken after his team’s five-wicket loss to Uttar Pradesh in the Ranji Trophy quarterfinals on Wednesday. The team’s famed batting line-up fell short and the combined experience of four of their top-order batsmen – Mayank Agarwal, Manish Pandey, Karun Nair and R Samarth — and the over 22,000 first-class runs they have scored counted for little. “It is disappointing from a batting point of view, as a batsman myself and the batting group. The second innings — this was not among the best batting performances we had of late. But yesterday (Tuesday) was not a day we want to remember. We should have taken our time and seen the overs through. We cannot repeat the same mistake again,” the skipper reasoned. Pandey also revealed that the mann...

Ranji Trophy: Karnataka-Railways match ends in a draw; J&K start with win over Pondicherry | Cricket News – Times of India

CHENNAI: Karnataka and Railways played out a draw in a Ranji Trophy Elite Group C match while Jammu and Kashmir began on a winning note, trouncing Pondicherry by eight wickets on Sunday. Resuming at 63 for one, Karnataka slipped from 179 for 2 to 223 for 9 before skipper Manish Pandey declared, leaving the opponent with a 278-run target from 41 overs for an improbable victory. The Railways finished at 69 for 4. With Mayank Agarwal batting on 39, the focus was on how much the India Test batter could get.

JAIPUR: Tamil Nadu came up with a superb all-round performance to crush Karnataka by 151 runs to progress to the semifinals of the Vijay Hazare Trophy domestic 50-over tournament on Tuesday.

Opening batter N Jagadeesan hammered 102 (101 balls, 9x4s, 1x6) and left-arm spinner R Sai Kishore, pushed up the order to go after the bowling, smacked 61 (71 balls, 4x4s, 3x6s) before the burly M Shahrukh Khan bludgeoned an unbeaten 39-ball 79 (7 fours, 6 sixes) to help Tamil Nadu pile up 350-plus score.

Vidarbha, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh teams to beat in Vijay Hazare Trophy pre-quarters | Cricket News – Times of India

JAIPUR: Karnataka, Vidarbha and Madhya Pradesh would have a slight edge over their respective opponents in the three pre-quarterfinals of the Vijay Hazare Trophy to be played here on Sunday. While the Faiz Fazal-led Vidarbha should go as favourites against minnows Tripura, it will be a clash of equals when Karnataka take on an equally upbeat Rajasthan at the KL Saini Stadium. The third quarter-final between two neighboring states – Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh -- also promises to be an exciting affair in which the former would be banking on the performance of Venkatesh Iyer, who shone in his debut T20 series against New Zealand, and that could eventually be the difference between the two sides.

Vijay Hazare Trophy: TN thrash Karnataka by 8 wickets in southern derby | Cricket News – Times of India

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Left-arm spinners M Siddharth and R Sai Kishore came up with impressive performances as Tamil Nadu outplayed arch-rivals Karnataka by eight wickets in an Elite Group 'B' match of the Vijay Hazare Trophy on Thursday. Skipper Manish Pandey's decision to bat first backfired as Siddharth (4/23) and Sai Kishore (3/28) spun a web around the Karnataka batters to bundle them out for 122 in 36.3 overs. Save Pandey (40) and Rohan Kadam (37), none of the other Karnataka batters could make a significant contribution. Tamil Nadu then rode on B Indrajith's unbeaten half-century to overhaul the target in 28 overs. The slide began in the opening over when Sandeep Warrier had Ravikumar Samarth caught behind by Dinesh Karthik for a duck off in the second ball. Only a 67-run partnershi...
