Left-arm spinner Nilesh Kulkarni became India’s first bowler to pick a wicket off his first ball in Test cricket. Ironically, despite dismissing opener Marvan Atapattu off his first ball, Kulkarni went wicketless for the next 419 balls he bowled in the match as Sri Lanka piled on a rec...

Why would Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav, Rohit Sharma, Yuzevendra Chahal want the world to see their leg-pulling session?

Who would invite the world to a savage leg-pulling session with friends? Of all people, India’s top cricketers. The other day, those perpetually shielded by dark glasses, handlers, agents and equipped to the teeth to avert any attempt to invade their privacy opened the doors of their rooms to fans, and even others. They allowed anyone with an internet connection to be the fly on the wall when they dropped guard and spoke about anything and everything. On a non-match day, probably to ward off the boredom of a long tour, Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal and Rohit Sharma connected on Insta Live. Having shared rooms, meals and experiences for years now, they took liberties, didn’t take offence and winked when cracking inside jokes. They were a riot. Pant and Surya would fo...

Sreesanth says India would have won the World Cup thrice if had played under Kohli’s captaincy

S Sreesanth, who has been part of India’s two World Cup winning teams, has said that India would have won at least three World Cups, if he had played under Virat Kohli’s captaincy. Under the leadership of Kohli, India have faltered at different ICC tournaments beginning with the 2017 Champions Trophy, 2019 ODI World Cup, and the 2021 World Test Championship. After tasting defeat against arch-rivals Pakistan in 2017, India have failed twice to beat New Zealand — in the 2019 semi-final and in 2021 final. “If I would have been a part of the team under Virat’s captaincy, India would have won the World Cup in 2015, 2019 & 2021,” said Sreesanth in a ShareChat Audio Chatroom on Tuesday. Sreesanth recalled standing with Sachin Tendulkar carrying the World Cup and how Tendulkar became emoti...

2nd ODI: Reece Topley’s career-best 6/24 sends India hurtling to 100-run defeat | Cricket News – Times of India

If ace pacer Jasprit Bumrah took 6/19 to shape India's 10-wicket thumping win over England at the Oval in the first ODI, it was the turn of seamer Recce Topley to return the compliment in the second ODI at Lord's, as he took 6/24 in 9.5 overs to fire the hosts to a dominating 100-run victory in the second ODI on Thursday. These are now the best ODI figures by an England bowler against India. England's superb comeback, after being hammered in the opener, has helped them tie the score 1-1 and set up an exciting finale, with the ODI series decider to be played on July 17 at Old Trafford. AS IT HAPPENEDLike England saw their batting implode in the first ODI, India too suffered a horrible top-order collapse which saw them crash to 31 for four in the 12th over.

Sachin Tendulkar, Nasser Hussain agree Jasprit Bumrah is best bowler across formats

India seamer Jasprit Bumrah recorded his best figures in ODI when he took 6/19 against England in the first ODI in the Oval. Bumrah’s performance was lauded by everyone across the globe but the best compliment that the star could ever hope to receive was from cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar. The Indian legend tweeted that he was of the opinion that Bumrah was the best bowler across all three formats, something that England legend Nasser Hussain agreed to on-air. “I’ve been of the opinion for a while now that Bumrah is the best bowler across formats. It was good to hear @nassercricket agree with me on-air,” Tendulkar tweeted. It may be mentioned here that the two cricketing stalwarts did not always see eye to eye, with Hussain orchestrating Tendulkar’s only stump out in Test cricket in 2...

Jasprit Bumrah’s pull in Stuart Broad record over evokes memories of Kapil Dev’s Nataraja

The most breathtaking shot from Jasprit Bumrah in the over of mayhem, in which he looted 29 of the 35 runs against Stuart Broad to break the world record for most runs in a single over in a Test, was a marvellous pull. The front leg swivelled up in the air, and it brought memories of three glorious pulls, somewhat similar. The soul of the shots was the flamboyant upward thrust of the front leg and the individuality comes through in what transpires next. We also look at the vastly contrasting version of Sachin Tendulkar’s. Kapil Dev’s Nataraja shot The takeaway from Kapil’s signature shot wasn’t a sense of brutality but of something wildly beautiful. There wasn’t violence in it, like most pull shots can often have. No wonder The Hindu’s R Mohan instinctively sensed something classical in...

India vs England, 5th Test: Old rivalry, new look | Cricket News – Times of India

Both India & England have fresh management but the spotlight will also be on some familiar foes in the rescheduled fifth Test starting todayUnlike the India-Australia contests, the India versus England rivalry has been devoid of personality clashes like Shane Warne vs Sachin Tendulkar or Glenn McGrath vs Tendulkar. There were only brief episodes in the early 2000s when Nasser Hussain and Sourav Ganguly clashed with their unique captaincy styles. It was only after the 2014 series, when Jimmy Anderson had Virat Kohli for lunch, breakfast and dinner, and Kohli responded in style in 2016 at home and 2018 away, that a clash of personalities got top billing. This one-off Test starting at Edgbaston on Friday will perhaps be the last time that one will see the ageing warhorse go up against ...

Exclusive: I told Yuzvendra Chahal that I want to be the world’s best all-rounder, says Yashasvi Jaiswal after twin centuries in Ranji Trophy SF | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The patience was clearly visible in Mumbai's young batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal's batting when he came to the crease in Mumbai's second innings of their Ranji Trophy semi-final clash against Uttar Pradesh. He opened the innings with Prithvi Shaw. Shaw started hammering the bowlers from the word go before departing for a blistering 64 off 71 balls. At the other end, Yashasvi was leaving every outside off delivery with ease without replying to the sledges from the Uttar Pradesh bowlers and fielders. Watching Yashasvi going into the 'Pujara and Dravid mode' frustrated the UP bowlers. The left-hander got off the mark off the 54th delivery he faced when he guided Ankit Rajpoot towards square leg for a boundary. He was applauded by his teammates in the dressing room and he smiled and r...

Pieter Seelaar has played 57 ODIs and 77 T20I for the Netherlands, but most Indian fans will remember him for his spoil against India at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi during the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup. At Feroz Shah Kotla, the Netherland’s left-arm spinner gave India a scare after he dismissed India’s top three, Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar and Yusuf Pathan, in the space of two overs. There was pin-drop silence in the stadium before Yuvraj Singh (51 not out) guided India to a comfortable five-wicket win. Seelar ended with a brilliant figure of 3/53 from his 10 overs.

Tendulkar said that RR bowlers never allowed RCB batters to ease pressure at any point as they sent many star batters of Bangalore back into the hut.

Shoaib Akhtar knew he was chucking, quips Virender Sehwag | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Former India batter Virender Sehwag has quipped that Pakistan's express pacer Shoaib Akhtar used to 'chuck', adding that the much feared bowler knew "he used to jerk his elbow". Speaking on Home of Heroes, Sports18's latest offering, Sehwag said that it was tough to pick the Pakistani pacer because of his action. "Shoaib knows he used to jerk his elbow; he knew he was chucking too. Why would the ICC (International Cricket Council) ban him otherwise?" Sehwag said. "(Australian pace bowler) Brett Lee's hand came down straight, so it was easy to pick the ball. But with Shoaib (Akhtar), you could never guess where the hand and the ball will come from."
