LEEDS (England): England are 113 runs away from completing a series whitewash against New Zealand after the hosts put themselves in a commanding position with eight wickets in hand in the final innings of the third Test on Sunday. Chasing 296 for victory, Ollie Pope and Joe Root were at the crease at stumps after the pair made light work of a competitive target as England finished day four on 183-2. The pair set up what promises to be an intriguing final day, with Headingley hopeful of having a packed house as they look to replicate the Trent Bridge Test's atmosphere by offering free tickets. England lost Alex Lees to a run-out after a mix-up in the fifth over while his opening partner Zak Crawley (25) was caught in the covers off Michael Bracewell, with skipper Kane Williamson involved...

England strike late to seize control of 3rd Test | Cricket News – Times of India

LEEDS (England): England's bowlers struck three times in quick succession late on day three to take control of the final Test against New Zealand at Headingley on Saturday and stay on course for a 3-0 series sweep. The tourists were on 168-5 and led England by 137 runs when rain brought a premature halt to the day's play. New Zealand got off to a promising start in their second innings thanks to a fluent half-century from Tom Latham (76) but lost their way after the opener was dismissed by debutant Jamie Overton (1-34) off the first ball after tea. Devon Conway (11) was soon to follow, succumbing to Joe Root's part-time off-spin before England landed the big scalp of opposition skipper Kane Williamson, who perished for 48 after edging behind to Matthew Potts (2-20). Jack Leach (1-26) al...

LEEDS: England centurion Johnny Bairstow and debutant Jamie Overton blazed a thrilling unbeaten seventh wicket stand of 209 in 223 balls to guide their teetering side to 264 for six at the close of the second day of the third Test with New Zealand on Friday. The imperious Bairstow has now blasted back-to-back centuries as he finished unbeaten on 130 from 126 balls, while number eight Overton showed his genuine all-round qualities with an equally eye-catching 89 not out from only 106 deliveries. England trail the tourists' first innings score of 329 by 65 runs at Headingley, but will be delighted with their fightback after they slipped to 55 for six in their reply. It is the highest seventh-wicket partnership for England against New Zealand and Overton's score is the most by an England p...

New Zealand Cricket have named former Dutch all-rounder Michael Rippon in their 15-man Twenty20 international squad for the tour of Europe in July and August. Cape Town native Rippon, 30, moved to New Zealand from South Africa in 2013 and played 31 times for the Netherlands, including a three-match one-day international series against the Black Caps in March.

2nd Test: Root, Pope centuries fuel England fightback against New Zealand | Cricket News – Times of India

NOTTINGHAM (United Kingdom): Joe Root swaggered to a majestic 163 not out and Ollie Pope hit his highest Test score of 145 as rampant England reached 473-5 against New Zealand at close of play on the third day of the second Test. Replying to New Zealand's mammoth first innings score of 553, Root and Pope took full advantage of a docile pitch with a blistering run-spree at Trent Bridge on Sunday. Thanks to the pair's commanding displays, England are in position to match or pass New Zealand's total in a Test that could be destined for a high-scoring draw with two days left. Freed of the oppressive shackles of the England captaincy after handing the role to Stokes earlier this year, Root was in vibrant mood as he unfurled his full array of strokes in his 27th Test century.

England ‘won’t die wondering’ under McCullum, says Southee | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: Tim Southee has forecast an exciting time for England under Brendon McCullum as the former New Zealand captain prepares to go up against the reigning World Test champions at Lord's. Thursday's opening match of a three-game series will be McCullum's first Test as England coach, with the hosts looking to him to kickstart their red-ball fortunes in much the same way he sparked a New Zealand revival when captain of his native country. England are currently on a miserable run of one win in 17 Tests, with McCullum something of a surprise choice to succeed Chris Silverwood given his lack of red-ball coaching experience, although he will be working alongside a captain with a similar outlook in the newly-appointed Ben Stokes. "It's exciting, obviously a great challenge for Brendon," pace...

IPL 2022: Watch – What went wrong here? Rohit Sharma’s baffling dismissal via DRS | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Was there a genuine edge off Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma's bat that resulted in him having to walk back to the pavilion in Monday's IPL match vs KKR? The KKR players felt there was a genuine edge indeed, but there were very many across the world, who were watching, who felt that Rohit and MI were given a really bad decision, thanks to technology or more specifically the Decision Review System (DRS). WHAT HAPPENEDThis was the last delivery of the first over of the Mumbai run chase. The 5 time champions, who are struggling big time this season and are already out of the playoffs race were jolted early thanks to this rather dubious DRS call. Tim Southee was the bowler and bowled a back of a length ball to Rohit, who was looking at defending the ball and seemed to have mi...

KOLKATA: In 2008, when Tim Southee was making waves in competitive cricket as a 19-year-old, Umesh Yadav had only started considering a career in the sport. Nearly a decade and a half later, Southee, a year younger and 366 international wickets ahead of Umesh, is so impressed with his Kolkata Knight Riders teammate's bowling in IPL-15, that the New Zealander is backing him to wear the India jersey again in the shortest format, having last played a T20I more than three years ago. "I'm a fan of Umesh, he is a tremendous bowler. I was fortunate enough to share the new ball with him a few times when we both played at RCB," Southee said in an interview to PTI.

I think I have been lucky against India but Kanpur Test was reassuring: Kyle Jamieson | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Kyle Jamieson has had a fair degree of success in four of the five Tests that he has played against India but the giant New Zealand seamer attributes a lot of it to the groundwork done by senior bowlers Trent Boult and Tim Southee.
