Hardik Pandya: Didn’t want to risk playing Ruturaj Gaikwad as he had a calf niggle, says Hardik Pandya | Cricket News – Times of India

MALAHIDE: India skipper Hardik Pandya revealed that he didn't want to risk sending out Ruturaj Gaikwad to open the innings in the first T20 against Ireland as he picked up a calf niggle in the first half of the game. India chased down a 109-run target with relative ease in the rain-curtailed T20 against hosts Ireland on Sunday night. But at the halfway stage instead of regular opener Gaikwad, Deepak Hooda walked out to open the innings alongside Ishan Kishan. "Rutu had a niggle in his calf," Pandya said at the post-match press conference. "We had the choice of taking a risk and sending him in (to open), but I was not okay with it. A player's well-being is more important, and (I thought) we'll be able to manage what happens in the match." Hooda, who was playing his fourth T20I for India,...

IPL 2022: How successful was the ‘win toss and bowl’ formula for teams in the league phase? | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The Sunrisers Hyderabad-Punjab Kings contest on Sunday marked the conclusion of the league phase of the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League. A total of 70 matches were played since March 26 and this year's cricketing extravaganza was no different than its predecessors -- bringing out the highest quality of cricket almost every single evening over the last one and a half months. Restricted to just 4 venues due to Covid, the groundsmen at the Wankhede Stadium, Brabourne Stadium, DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai and Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune did a fantastic job to ensure that the pitches, which had to be reused, did not bring down the quality of cricket.

IPL 2022, SRH vs PBKS: Sunrisers Hyderabad look to end on a winning note against Punjab Kings | Cricket News – Times of India

With nothing to play for in an inconsequential match against Punjab Kings, Sunrisers Hyderabad will look to end their campaign with a win in the last league match of the IPL at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday. SRH started with three defeats but turned it around with an impressive run of five consecutive wins, only to succumb to five more losses. They just about managed to scrape past Mumbai Indians by three runs in their penultimate match. They are level on points with Punjab Kings. Both teams went out of the reckoning after RCB beat GT on Thursday. Skipper Kane Williamson has left to be with his partner for the birth of their second child, so Bhuvneshwar Kumar is likely to lead. Punjab, meanwhile, ruined their chances after a 17-run defeat to Delhi and will also be seeking a c...

IPL 2022, MI vs DC: Will Rohit Sharma do Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis a favour? | Cricket News – Times of India

RCB need Mumbai Indians to beat Delhi Capitals today to qualify for the playoffsMUMBAI: Keep an eye on the stands at Wankhede.

Kohli and du Plessis themselves joked about this on Thursday evening, after their comprehensive win over the Gujarat Titans to inch closer to the play-offs. But the joke is getting serious. RCB's entry into the playoffs depends on the result of the match between Delhi Capitals and the Mumbai Indians. Should Delhi lose the game, RCB go in as Delhi will end with 14 points. A simple win for Delhi should take them through as their net run rate (+0. 255) is far superior to RCB's -0. 253. So, Delhi must w...

Tripathi's wonderful knock of 76 came off just 44 balls, laced with nine boundaries and three sixes at a strike rate of 172.73. "He's not far at all. If someone doesn't get up from the bench or gets up from the wrong side of the bed and gets injured, this guy can be slotted in straightaway. He can go at No. 3 or 4.
