Sehwag's tweet on a husband-wife relationship has everyone in splits

6 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Virender Sehwag, who is known for his hilarious and witty tweets, sent his fans on Twitter into a frenzy with a comical tweet on a husband-wife relationship. The former India cricketer posted a picture of two birds sitting on a tree, where one bird is seen shouting at the other bird, while the other bird is looking away. He tweeted, "Don’t know much about birds but easy to identify the husband in this picture". Virender Sehwag's fans on Twitter could not stop reacting to this epic one-liner and started commenting on the post. Most of the fans were impressed by the former batsman's witty sense of humour, while some others took the tweet with a pinch of salt.  We wonder what does Virender Sehwag's wife Aarti Ahlawat has to say about the tweet.

Hardik Pandya can be close to Ben Stokes in 2 years, says Klusener

8 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
A game-changer in his hey-days, South African all-rounder Lance Klusener foresees India's Hardik Pandya closing in on someone like Ben Stokes if the team management can be "patient" with him for the next two years at least. "Among current all-rounders in world cricket, Ben Stokes is right up there. There are a few who have come and gone in recent times as well but certainly, a guy like Pandya, give him a year or two at this level, there is no reason why he can't be one of the best all-rounders out there," Klusener told in an interview here Wednesday. Klusener, who is in the city as senior Delhi team's consultant coach for the Vijay Hazare Trophy, spoke at length about Pandya's all-round abilities which have come under the scanner after his largely disappointing show in England. "I think we must be careful while making comparisons. Everybody wants to compare Hardik to the great Kapil Dev. Hardik is his own cricketer. Of course, he has got some learning to do. I guess Hardik's success ..

News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Puducherry became the first Plate group team to win a Vijay Hazare match with an eight-wicket win over Manipur yesterday. Manipur folded for a paltry 120 after Puducherry opted to field. Mumbai-based boys Sagar Udeshi (4-20) and Sagar Trivedi (3-47) shared seven wickets between them as Manipur struggled to get a partnership going. Another Mumbai-bred player Shashank Singh (63 not out) along with Himachal Pradesh veteran Paras Dogra (21 not out) sweated little to cruise to the target in 25.3 overs. Puducherry is led by Mumbai veteran all-rounder Abhishek Nayar, who returned with figures of 9-2-16-1. Catch up on all the latest T20 news and updates here.

Ben Stokes, Hales in ODI squad despite ECB's disrepute charge

8 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Ben Stokes and Alex Hales were named in England's one-day squad to tour Sri Lanka on Wednesday despite being charged with bringing cricket into disrepute. The pair face a disciplinary panel hearing in London in December following a brawl outside a nightclub in the southwestern city of Bristol in September 2017. Stokes, 27, was last month cleared of affray following a seven-day trial related to the incident. Hales, 29, was with his England teammate during the altercation but was not charged. Warwickshire fast bowler Olly Stone, 24, has been called into the 16-man squad for the first time as a replacement for Yorkshire's Liam Plunkett. Plunkett, who is getting married, will be available again for the last two ODIs of the five-match series. Stone, who has struggled with injury problems in recent years, has impressed selectors with his consistent performances this season. The first ODI takes place in Dambulla on October 10.

Asia Cup 2018: Rusty India made to sweat for win by Hong Kong openers

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Minnows Hong Kong gave India a might scare in a Group A match of the Asia Cup at the Dubai stadium yesterday. After their bowlers had done a good job of restricting India to under 300, their openers Nizakat Khan and Anshuman Rath put on a record 174-run stand that sent shock waves in the Indian camp. But once wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav got rid of Rath and debutant Khaleel Ahmed accounted for Nizakat, their challenge wilted away. After being put in to bat, the way centurion Shikhar Dhawan and Ambati Rayudu were batting, it seemed India would post a huge total. But after the duo departed, the Indian innings lost much of the momentum and managed 285 for seven in the end. Hong Kong kept threatening the Indian total right till the end. Luckily for India, barring the openers the other Hong Kong batsmen were overawed by the task and cast their wickets away. The win assured both India and Pakistan's passage into the Super Four, rendering today's match between the two of little consequence,..

Asia Cup 2018: Pakistan gear up to take on India at 'Home'

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
It's the rivalry that matters. When India played Hong Kong in their opening Asia Cup match at the Dubai International stadium here yesterday, it drew sparse crowds. But it will be filled to the rafters when they take on arch-rivals Pakistan at the same venue today. With both teams expected to qualify for the next round, this game is more for gaining a psychological edge ahead of the crucial Super Four match at the same venue on September 23. And if both keep winning their other matches, the two could well meet again in the September 28 final. But that's for the future. There is no doubt the teams will not be thinking too far ahead and, as captains usually say, they will be taking one game at a time. One can understand the craze for India-Pakistan clashes, as they rarely face each other these days and have not played in the UAE for 12 years. That may be a bit of a disadvantage for India as barring MS Dhoni, no other player from the current team has played international cricket here. ..
                 

Asia Cup 2018: Expect tight cricket in the tournament, says Manjrekar

2 days ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
While Team India are not expected to break much sweat when they take on minnows Hong Kong today in their Asia Cup opening match at Dubai, all eyes will be on the much-anticipated clash against arch-rivals Pakistan on Wednesday. Going by the trend in the last few years, India have largely dominated Pakistan. This time around though, the contest is most likely to be a closely-fought one, felt former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar. India-Pakistan contests are mostly witnessed only in ICC World Cups [50 overs, T20] and in the Asia Cup due to the political tension between the two nations. India thumped Pakistan by eight wickets when they clashed in the 2013 Champions Trophy at Edgbaston. In the 2015 World Cup, India won by 76 runs at the Adelaide Oval. Pakistan suffered another crushing defeat in the 2017 Champions Trophy where they lost by 124 runs in the group stage. However, in the same tournament, Pakistan avenged their loss with a thumping 180-run victory in the final. There has only ..

Pakistan are favourites to win Asia Cup, says Sanjay Manjrekar

2 days ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar believes India are one of the main contenders to lift the ongoing Asia Cup, but tipped Pakistan as the favourites given the neighbour country has been playing in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) regularly. Pakistan have begun their Asia Cup campaign routing minnows Hong Kong by eight wickets Sunday and have the added advantage of playing in the UAE, their "home" ground. India, led by skipper Rohit Sharma, would start their campaign Tuesday against Hong Kong, which is a dress rehearsal for their marquee clash with arch-rivals Pakistan the next day. "I think Pakistan start as favourites more than India, because they have been playing in those conditions (in the UAE) for a while now and it's a team which is on the surge. "India, of course, are resting Virat (Kohli), which takes a lot of strength away from the team," Manjrekar, an ESPNcricinfo expert, told PTI here. He was quizzed whether in the absence of Kohli, India were the favourites going i..
                 

Wayne Parnell's new county deal could end his South Africa career

2 days ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
South Africa's Wayne Parnell has signed a new three-year contract with Worcestershire that could signal the end of the 29-year-old all-rounder's Proteas career. Parnell has not played for South Africa in nearly a year and was sidelined with injury in December. By agreeing what is known as a 'Kolpak' deal with Midlands side Worcestershire, he has effectively agreed to being classed as a home player and not a member of the county's overseas contingent. That status that would no longer apply if Parnell played for South Africa while still under contract at New Road. Parnell decided to spend the next several years with Worcestershire while helping them win English cricket's Twenty20 Blast at Edgbaston on Saturday. "This is probably the toughest decision I've had to make in my career," Parnell told ESPNCricinfo. "It's a very difficult decision and I am fully aware and understand the pros and cons of it.

The legendary Virender Sehwag Monday said he resigned from the Delhi and Districts Cricket Association's cricket committee keeping the body's interests in mind while skipper Gautam Gambhir distanced himself from Manoj Prabhakar's non-appointment as bowling coach. Sehwag, along with committee members Aakash Chopra and Rahul Sanghvi, had recommended the retention of Prabhakar as bowling coach but it wasn't ratified by the management. It couldn't be confirmed if that was the trigger for Sehwag's resignation. However, as per DDCA sources the trio's resignation was accepted because the state body will submit a new constitution as per the Supreme Court orders in the next two days, and fresh panels will be appointed. When Sehwag was asked whether Prabhakar's non-appointment led to his resignation, he gave an open-ended reply.

Favourites India will look to sweep aside minnows Hong Kong in their Asia Cup opener on Tuesday and prepare for the much-anticipated clash against arch-rivals Pakistan the next day. Hong Kong, expectedly, lost to Pakistan by eight wickets in their first game. India, who even without talismanic skipper Virat Kohli, should give them the same treatment. Under Rohit Sharma's captaincy and with experienced M.S. Dhoni in their ranks, India will look to get their combination right in the first game before the tougher test of Pakistan on which all eyes will rest. Besides Rohit, the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, K.L. Rahul and Kedar Jadhav add teeth to their batting while in the bowling department, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal throw up a lot of variety. The Asia Cup will once again bring to the fore Dhoni's batting frailties with age as his strike rate has been below par in recent limited overs matches.

Bihar returned to domestic cricket with an easy eight-wicket win over Nagaland in a plate group match of the Vijay Hazare Trophy one-day tournament here on yesterday. Back to the domestic fold after a gap of 18 years, Bihar put up a solid batting display led by Babul Kumar's 121 not out to cruise to the 254-run target with 38 balls to spare. Babul's knock came off just 119 balls with 15 fours and a six as he along with opener Vikash Ranjan (47) put together 116 runs to lay the foundation. After Ranjan's departure, the No 3 batsman held the fort with Keshav Kumar joining the party with a brisk 76 not out off 69 balls, studded with six fours and three sixes in match-winning 130 unbroken partnership. Opting to bat, debutants Nagaland got off to a promising start with opener Nitesh Lochab's 79 from 69 balls (12x4, 2x6).

Asia Cup 2018: All-round India crush Pakistan in one-sided encounter

News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
What a difference a day can make to a cricket team. And what a turnaround it was by the Indian team who were so listless against Hong Kong a day earlier. The outfit that struggled to get past the minnows, totally outplayed arch-rivals Pakistan in their second game of the Asia Cup here yesterday. As India and Pakistan had already qualified for the Super Fours after defeating Hong Kong, their Group A match was more for gaining psychological edge for their real battle on Sunday. And it was India who came up trumps a day after surviving a scare against Hong Kong. One did not expect the Indians to come back so strongly especially as they were playing back-to-back matches in intense heat. The inclusion of pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah added a lot of firepower to the bowling attack and that showed in their performance. They bowled Pakistan out for just 162, which was 12 runs less than what the Hong Kong openers alone had posted against them. Once the bowlers had played their part, the batsm..

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed yesterday expressed his displeasure at the Indian team playing all its Asia Cup matches in Dubai while the others are being made to shuttle between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. India were to play two matches in Abu Dhabi but the schedule was tweaked to allow Rohit Sharma's men to play all their matches in Dubai. Asked about the scheduling being skewed in India's favour, Sarfraz said: "If you look at the schedule, even if India lose pool match, they still play in Dubai. Travelling is an issue. If you have to travel 90 minutes and then play matches with a gap of a single day, then it is challenging. "I believe it should have been same for all the teams, irrespective of whether it is India or Pakistan. I don't know what was Asian Cricket Council's thought behind this. I think PCB is looking into the matter," said Sarfraz. It is learnt that the BCCI, which is hosting the tournament, decided against the shuttling of venues keeping the commercial conditions in mind. ..

Indian team were led by centurion Shikhar Dhawan, who returned to form in style (after his struggles in England) against hapless Hong Kong attack and blasted 127 off 120 balls.

Thus, the team management would be in a dilemma whether to play their best XI against minnows Hong Kong today and save a couple of players, especially pace bowlers, for the all-important game against Pakistan on Wednesday. It's a difficult balancing act as India are scheduled to play six matches in a span of 11 days, including the September 28 final, if they make it that far. The good thing for them is that all their matches are in Dubai, thus they will not have to travel to Abu Dhabi by road which Pakistan will have to do for their two Super Four matches.
