Ollie Robinson returns to England Test squad for South Africa series | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: England have recalled fit again fast bowler Ollie Robinson for the first two Tests of their three-match series against South Africa that starts at Lord’s on Aug. 17 as a replacement for the injured Jamie Overton. Robinson has himself only recently returned to action after a back problem and will Test his fitness in a four-day game for the England Lions against touring South Africa in Canterbury starting next Tuesday. Sam Billings, who had been cover for concussed wicketkeeper Ben Foakes, drops out of the squad that beat India by seven wickets last month - a fourth win in a row under the new leadership of coach Brendon McCullum and captain Ben Stokes. Robinson’s last Test was against Australia in Hobart in January. He has 39 wickets at an average of 21.28 in his nine appearances ...

England’s win one of the hosts’ best-ever run chases in history of Test cricket: ICC | Cricket News – Times of India

EDGBASTON: England's historic come-from-behind win against India in the rescheduled fifth game at Edgbaston, with the hosts managing their highest successful run chase in Test history, has given a new direction to the team under skipper Ben Stokes and coach Brendon McCullum. It's extremely rare that a team 378 runs in deficit comes back to win a Test, but England played patiently on Day 4 and 5 and rode on superb unflinching performances from their most consistent batters -- Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow -- to carve out a win against one of the most feared Test sides in the world. On Wednesday, the ICC listed the most successful Test run-chases ever by England before the historic Edgbatson victory. 1.

In Numbers: Record breaking India vs England 5th Test | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Joe Root (142*) and Jonny Bairstow (114*) led England's stunning fighback with an unbeaten 269-run stand and inflicted a seven-wicket defeat on India in the rescheduled fifth Test to draw the five-match series 2-2. Let's recap some of the big numbers and records that the five-day action produced at Edgbaston in the fifth Test:* The combination of Rishabh Pant (146 & 57) and Ravindra Jadeja (104 & 23) accounted for 330 of the tourists' runs - almost half of what India scored (416 & 245) in their two innings combined. * The 222-run stand between Pant and Jadeja in the first innings is the joint-highest partnership for the sixth wicket in Test cricket for India away from home. They equalled Sachin Tendulkar and Mohammad Azharuddin's record which was set in 1997 again...

‘Broady, get on with the batting and shut up’: Umpire Kettleborough blasts Stuart Broad

Umpire Richard Kettleborough blasted Stuart Broad and told him to ‘get on with the batting and shut up’ during his five-ball stay in England’s first innings. The incident took place on Day 3 of the match when Broad went to complain about short balls bowled to him by Jasprit Bumrah. Umpire Richard Kettleborough could be heard on the stump mic telling England star Stuart Broad to be “shut up” during the fifth Test against India at Edgbaston. “Let us do the umpiring – you do the batting, alright?”Kettleborough said.

India vs England 2022: ‘It was pretty unlucky’ – James Anderson on Stuart Broad’s 35-run over against Jasprit Bumrah | Cricket News – Times of India

BIRMINGHAM: Veteran England pacer James Anderson backed his bowling partner Stuart Broad, who was on the receiving end of an unwanted record on day two of the fifth Test against India at Edgbaston on Saturday. Coming in to bat at No. 10, India's stand-in captain Jasprit Bumrah made light of a bowler of Broad's calibre, hitting him for four boundaries and two sixes in an over, while six runs came off extras. In the 84th over of the match, captain Bumrah started off by hitting a boundary, hooking Broad into the gap for four. Next, the veteran English paceman bowled a wayward delivery to concede five wides. Broad's next ball was a no-ball, which went for a six. After that Bumrah wreaked havoc hitting Broad for three consecutive boundaries and in the process taking India's total past the 40...

5th Test, Day 2 – ‘Captain Bumrah’ rattles England: Smashes Brian Lara’s world record with bat, wreaks havoc with ball | Cricket News – Times of India

BIRMINGHAM: Skipper Jasprit Bumrah held sway with a mesmerizing all-round performance, which included a world record feat with the bat and an incisive spell with the ball as India seized complete control from England on a rain-hit second day of the rescheduled fifth Test here on Saturday. Such was the power of Bumrah's all-round show (31 off 16 balls and 3/35) in his first appearance as India captain that it easily overshadowed Ravindra Jadeja's superbly constructed third Test hundred that took India to a commanding first innings score of 416.

Jasprit Bumrah: Right arm fast and awesome

Jasprit Bumrah: Right Arm Fast. The categorisation is oversimplifying Bumrah. He is many in one—a versatile new-ball merchant; an old-ball virtuoso, a seam artiste; supreme length-manipulator, an all-format freak of nature, a talisman and a matchwinner, an icon and an entertainer. On Saturday, he was all, more than all, and pure theatre too. There are many reasons spectators flock to watch him in flesh or turn on the television when he is winding up that unique action of his. Apart from the sense of achievement that will grow with the years in just having been there the day that Bumrah did that, a desperation almost to be part of him in some tiny way, Bumrah brings something for everyone. For the masses, he gifts the visceral thrill of a supersonic fast bowler splaying stumps and blast...

‘Yuvi hai ya Bumrah’: Twitter goes ballistic as Bumrah goes big in a 35-run Broad over

“Just when you think you’ve seen it all, this game surprises you even more,” wrote Ravi Shastri. Indian captain Jasprit Bumrah tempted him to with his swashbuckling batting in Stuart Broad’s over that cost 35 runs, the most expensive in Test cricket history. Bumrah had come in to bat in the 80th over of the India innings with just two wickets remaining. Two overs later, when Anderson dismissed Jadeja who had just scored a hundred, Bumrah took the initiative of going all out. And he found the opportunity to do so in the next over as Stuart Broad misjudged the India no. 10, bowling him wide and short.

Jasprit Bumrah hits 29 as Stuart Broad concedes world record 35 runs in single over

In the ongoing 5th Test between India and England, England speedster Stuart Broad created an unwanted world record when he conceded 35 runs in an over as Indian skipper Jasprit Bumrah thrashed him all around the park. Broad had conceded 6 sixes in an over to Yuvraj Singh in the T20 format back in 2007 but he might not have expected the same treatment here at Edgbaston. Bumrah smashed two sixes and four fours to amass 29 runs with 6 runs added as extras and created a world record for scoring the most runs in an over in Test cricket. Before Bumrah’s masterclass, 28 runs were the most conceded in an over in Test cricket with Robin Peterson, Joe Root and James Anderson sharing the dubious honour. Time to relive that special over once again 💪 Boom Boom Bumrah indeed 💥#ENGvINDpic.twitter.com...

World Record: Jasprit Bumrah rips apart Stuart Broad in 35-run over, the most expensive in Test history | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Jasprit Bumrah, the batter, was in carnage mode on Saturday as he smashed Stuart Broad for a 35-run over on Day 2 of the rescheduled fifth Test against England in Birmingham. Broad has now the unwarranted record of conceding most runs in an over in Test cricket's history. Bumrah and his blade went after Broad as the Englishman relived the horror of the 2007 inaugural T20 World Cup when the now retired India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh smashed him for 36 runs that had 6 sixes in it.

3rd Test, Day 1: Daryl Mitchell leads New Zealand rally after Stuart Broad strikes for England | Cricket News – Times of India

LEEDS: In-form Daryl Mitchell powered New Zealand's revival after Stuart Broad struck early for England on the first day of the third Test at Headingley on Thursday. New Zealand were 225 for five at close of play, with Mitchell 78 not out following his hundreds at Lord's and Trent Bridge. Those inspired efforts were insufficient to prevent the World Test champions falling 2-0 behind in the three-match series. But Mitchell will aim to add another ton as the Black Caps try to salvage a victory in the series finale. Broad, England's spearhead after James Anderson was ruled out with an ankle injury, removed Tom Latham in the first over of the day and then captured the prize wicket of New Zealand captain Kane Williamson during a return of two for 45 in 17 overs. Mitchell, however, held firm ...

Jamie Overton joins twin brother Craig in England squad for third Test | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: Surrey seam bowler Jamie Overton was on Thursday called up for England's third and final Test against New Zealand, joining twin brother Craig in a 14-man squad. The uncapped Overton, who is the younger sibling by three minutes, earned his place in the 14-man group after taking 21 wickets for the County Championship division one leaders this season. The 28-year-old, who has been hampered by injuries during his career, was called into the England one-day squad in 2013 but has not played international cricket. Overton, who previously played with Craig at Somerset, is the only addition to the 13-man group named for the first two Tests. The Overtons faced each other in a County Championship match between Somerset and Surrey this week, with Craig suffering concussion after Jamie hit h...

McCullum has England ‘running towards the danger’: Stuart Broad | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: Stuart Broad says England coach Brendon McCullum inspired the dramatic second Test victory against New Zealand by telling his team to "run towards the danger". McCullum has revitalised England in union with new captain Ben Stokes and the improvement generated by the fresh regime's positive attitude has been remarkable. England had failed to win any of their previous five Test series, winning just one match from 17 prior to the current New Zealand contest. But after beating the Test world champions by five wickets for a second successive match, England will head to Headingley next week looking to complete a clean sweep. Just a year ago, England, under the guidance of then coach Chris Silverwood, settled for a draw after refusing to take on a target of 273 in 75 overs against New ...

England’s Stuart Broad says he is on good terms with Root despite West Indies snub

Veteran England seamer Stuart Broad has dismissed speculation of a rift with former test captain Joe Root, saying that it would be “pathetic” if he were to fall out with him over being dropped for the tour of West Indies earlier this year. Broad and fellow paceman James Anderson, England’s top two wicket-takers in test cricket, were left out of the three-test series in the Caribbean, which ended in a 1-0 defeat and led to Root resigning as skipper. Both returned to the side for the opening test against New Zealand at Lord’s last week and were instrumental in helping the hosts to a five-wicket win in Ben Stokes’ first match as captain. “Joe and I spoke at length when he stood down as captain and I said to him how much he’s meant to me as a captain, and what a privilege it was playing und...

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson relishing extended England series | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: New Zealand captain Kane Williamson is looking forward to seeing his side challenged over a longer campaign as they prepare for a three-Test series in England. The economics of the game mean although New Zealand are the reigning World Test champions, they are rarely involved in anything more than a two-match campaign, even when they are at home as a result of having one of the smaller populations among leading cricket countries. Indeed the last time New Zealand were involved in anything more than a two-Test series was when they suffered a 3-0 defeat in Australia in 2019/20. But last year New Zealand hit the ground running to win a two-match campaign away to England 1-0 before, just over a week later, they defeated India in the inaugural World Test Championship final at Southampt...

New skipper Ben Stokes wants England to feel ‘free’ as Stuart Broad and James Anderson recalled | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: New England captain Ben Stokes said he wanted everyone in the side to "feel free" under his leadership as James Anderson and Stuart Broad were recalled for the first Test against New Zealand at Lord's starting Thursday. Stokes has taken over as skipper from Joe Root, with England on a woeful run of one win in 17 Tests. But the all-rounder told reporters at Lord's on Wednesday: "There's been a lot of talk about a 'reset', which is a word I don't like. "I just see it as a completely blank canvas. I just want everyone to feel free under my captaincy. "This is our time and we are going to dictate how things go forward. Everyone is starting fresh."

England recall Stuart Broad and James Anderson for Lord’s Test against New Zealand, Matthew Potts to make debut | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: England have recalled veteran pace bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad to their side for the first Test against New Zealand at Lord's starting Thursday while giving a debut to Durham quick Matthew Potts. Anderson, 39 and Broad, 35, England's two most successful bowlers of all time, with a combined 1,177 wickets between them, were both controversially left out of the squad for a 1-0 series loss in the West Indies earlier this year.

England must excite to attract stayaway fans, says Stuart Broad

England must produce a brand of cricket to excite supporters, fast bowler Stuart Broad said, with the team’s first Test match under new leadership failing to sell out any of its opening four days at Lord’s.

Stuart Broad vows to give ‘heart and soul’ at Lord’s | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: England veteran quick Stuart Broad has vowed to leave his "heart and soul" on the field should he earn a Test recall against New Zealand at Lord's this week. Both James Anderson and Broad, England's two all-time leading Test wicket-takers, were controversially left out of the squad that lost 1-0 in a three-match series in the West Indies earlier this year.
