‘Carrom ball’ in armoury, Krishnappa Gowtham ready to soar under Dravid’s wings | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Krishnappa Gowtham was nicknamed "Bhajji" by his teammates during his early years and he has adored Ravichandran Ashwin's cricketing philosophy but the all-rounder's skill-sets, including the "carrom ball", is his own customised version. Gowtham is among the six uncapped players picked for India's white-ball tour of Sri Lanka, comprising three ODIs and three T20 matches between July 13 and July 25. "You live a dream for years and now it has come true and you can't be more happier," was Gowtham's first reaction when PTI caught up with him. A consistent performer for a formidable Karnataka side, Gowtham hit the headlines when Chennai Super Kings broke the bank to win his services after an intense bidding war and now at 32, the lanky all-rounder has got his maiden India call-up....

They included Devdutt Padikkal, pacer Chetan Sakaria, Nitish Rana, Krishnappa Gowtham, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Varun Chakravarthy.

IPL 2021, CSK vs SRH: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis star in Chennai’s comfortable win | Cricket News – Times of India

CHENNAI: A common factor in Chennai Super Kings’ victories in IPL-14 has been the performance of their openers --- Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad. The duo took a few games to make an impact but once they found their mojo – the pair has been unstoppable. Against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi on Wednesday, du Plessis (56, 6x4, 1x6) and Gaikwad’s (75, 12x4) 129-run opening wicket stand saw the side cruise to a seven-wicket victory in 18.3 overs chasing 172. The start of the Delhi leg of the tournament hasn’t altered the fortunes of the two sides. While CSK notched up their fifth win in a row to regain the top position in the points table with 10 points, SRH continued to languish at the bottom with just 2 points from 6 outings.

Warner (57 off 55 balls) and Pandey (61 off 46 balls) added 106 runs for the second wicket at the Kotla but it was Williamson's 26 not out off 10 balls and Kedar Jadhav's 12 off 4 balls which ensured a competitive total for SRH.

David Warner: IPL 2021: It was a harsh call by selectors to drop Manish Pandey, says David Warner | Cricket News – Times of India

CHENNAI: Dropping batsman Manish Pandey was a "harsh" decision taken by selectors, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) skipper David Warner said after his team's agonising 'Super Over' defeat against Delhi Capitals (DC), here on Sunday. SCORECARD | POINTS TABLE | FIXTURESIPL veteran Pandey, who hasn't been scoring at a quick rate, was dropped for a much younger Jharkhand left-hander Virat Singh, who scored only 4 off 14 balls. "It depends on the selectors, it was a harsh call as per my opinion," Warner said, training his guns at coach Trevor Bayliss and mentor VVS Laxman, without naming them. Bayliss and Laxman have a big say on team's playing XI. "But at the end of the day it is a decision that they took and you cannot discredit Virat. He's a very good player and the surface was difficult. They ...

IPL 2021: Can’t rely on just boundaries, rotating strike is crucial on slow tracks, says VVS Laxman | Cricket News – Times of India

CHENNAI: Sunrisers Hyderabad mentor VVS Laxman rued that his batsmen could not rotate the strike when getting boundaries was tough against Mumbai Indians bowlers on a tough Chepauk wicket. Chasing a modest 151-run target, SRH could manage only 137 in 19.4 overs as their batsmen struggled to score runs in the middle overs on Saturday. "That's (taking singles and twos) a very important skill especially on these kind of wickets because it is not easy to hit through the line. You can't rely on just boundaries and sixes," Laxman said at the post-match press conference. "It's very important to keep the dot-ball percentage low, and the only way you can do it is by manipulating the field by rotating the strike. That is one aspect of the game which is very important on these kind of wickets. "Un...

CHENNAI: Sunrisers Hyderabad's middle-order continued to misfire as spinner Rahul Chahar and pacer Trent Boult fashioned Mumbai Indians to a 13-run win in their IPL match here on Saturday. Defending 150, leg-spinner Chahar (3/19) stifled the middle-order before Boult (3/28) polished off the tail as SRH were bowled out for 137 in 19.4 overs.

MI vs SRH Preview: Slow starters Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad face off on sluggish pitch | Cricket News – Times of India

Manish Pandey in firing line, Saha's role too under scannerHaving just lost his BCCI central contract, Manish Pandey will be firmly be under the scanner when Sunrisers Hyderabad, who have lost both their matches so far, take on the Mumbai Indians at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Saturday night. So far, the 31-year-old has found runs this season. He has a rather Bradmanesque average of 99 but the pace at which he has got them, a strike rate of 119.27, has just not been good enough for his team. The problem is that while he has managed to dig himself in while chasing a target, he has either struggled to accelerate and been unable to finish off the game, or got out at the wrong time. Both has invited criticism. In the first game against KKR, Pandey slammed 61* off 44 balls but couldn't hel...

Manish Pandey won’t be happy with himself: VVS Laxman | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Former Indian batsman VVS Laxman was least surprised at the exciting matches the ongoing edition of the IPL has thrown up. In his column for the Times of India, Laxman wrote, "The twists and turns of the IPL have been all too evident with the latest season just six games young. Rajasthan Royals' fantastic if eventually unsuccessful run chase, spearheaded by Sanju Samson, put the Wankhede pitch in perspective, while in Chennai, Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad squandered winning positions on successive nights, reiterating the challenges of batting at Chepauk." Samson hit a brilliant 119 against Punjab but failed to carry his team to victory after Deepak Hooda made 64 off just 28 balls.

IPL 2021: Shahbaz Ahmed has proved himself with his performance, says Siraj | Cricket News – Times of India

CHENNAI: Royal Challengers Bangalore pacer Mohammad Siraj feels that spin bowling all-rounder Shahbaz Ahmed has justified his selection in the playing eleven, following a match-winning performance against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL here. Ahmed picked up three wickets in an over to stage a remarkable turnaround for RCB on Wednesday night as the team defended 149 for eight for its second win in as many games. Ahmed even came out to bat at number three ahead of Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers, a reflection Virat Kohli's faith in the ability of the left-hander. "Both Shahbaz Ahmed and Rajat Patidar (who played the last game as Devdutt Padikkal was unavailable) have been brilliant in the practice games," Siraj said in the post-match press conference.

The bowlers, as expected, again ticked most boxes against Royal Challengers Bangalore, only to see their batsmen falter as the team suffered its second defeat of the tournament, this time by six runs.

CHENNAI: Left-arm spinner Shahbaz Ahmed (3/7) dished out a match-winning performance after Glenn Maxwell's half-century to help Royal Challengers Bangalore notch up a six-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League here on Wednesday. Put in to bat, RCB managed 149 for eight on the back of Maxwell's 41-ball 59 before Shahbaz changed the complexion of the match by dismissing Jonny Bairstow (12), Manish Pandey (38) and Abdul Samad (0) in one over, as SRH ended at 143 for nine in the stipulated 20 overs.

IPL 2021: Pleased to score fifty but disappointed to lose the game, says Bairstow | Cricket News – Times of India

CHENNAI: Jonny Bairstow might have been a standout performer for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Sunday but the English batsman was still disappointed as he was unable to take his side over the line against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
