It was the Mitchell Starc, Steven Smith show!

Perth: A stunning catch by Steve Smith snared the prized wicket of Kane Williamson as Mitchell Starc tore through the New Zealand top order on the second day of the first Test in Perth on Friday. Smith dived horizontally to his right at second slip to take the catch to remove Williamson for 34 from the bowling of Starc, just when it appeared New Zealand were fighting back well after losing their two openers with only one run on the board. After Australia posted 416 in extreme heat on the back of a third successive Test century for Marnus Labuschagne the Kiwis were struggling at 109 for five in reply at stumps, still 307 runs in arrears. Ross Taylor, who put on 76 for the third wicket with Williamson and made 290 in his previous Test in Perth, was on 66 and BJ Watling was yet to score. Smith's freak catch was a key moment, as the Kiwis slumped to 97 for five by losing three wickets for just 20 runs and Tim Southee conceded the last hour cost the Kiwis dearly. "Being five down is a coupl..

Ranji: Mumbai kickstart season with huge 309-run win over Baroda

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
Vadodara: Domestic giants Mumbai began their 2019-2020 Ranji Trophy season on a winning note, as they thrashed Baroda by 309 runs in their Elite Group B game here on Thursday. Baroda set a stiff target of 533 runs and needed another 460 runs to win. The hosts were teetering at 74/3 when play resumed and needed to play out the whole day to settle for a draw and avoid an outright defeat. But Shams Mulani, who had shone with the bat in the first essay and also picked a fifer, ran through the Baroda line up, as the side was bundled out for 224. Mulani ended with the figures of 4-72, as the 41-time domestic champions went for the kill. The left-arm spinner was ably supported by off-spinner Shashank Attarde (2-61) and medium pacer Akash Parkar (2-16), as Mumbai fetched six points from the lung-opener. For the hosts, Deepak Hooda (61; 8x4 and 1x6) and two-down Abimanyu Rajput (53; 7x4) tried to delay the inevitable by playing defiant knocks. The duo conjured a 81-run stand for the fourth..

Giles Shield: Double delight for Ayush Mhatre, Siddhant Rai

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
IES VN Sule Guruji Vidyalaya's (Dadar) Ayush Mhatre and Rizvi Springfield's (Bandra) Siddhant Rai scored double centuries for their respective teams in the U-14 MSSA Giles Shield inter-school cricket tournament on Thursday, helping their teams win convincingly. At Cross Maidan, while batting first, opener Ayush smashed a 137-ball 207 not out to help the Dadar team post 347 for two against Gokuldham High School. Yash Chavan contributed an unbeaten 68. In reply, Gokuldham were bundled out for a mere 35, suffering a 289-run defeat, thanks to some fine medium pace bowling by Arya Pandit (8-28). Interestingly, Ayush was picked as a ball boy for Wednesday's India v West Indies T20I at the Wankhede Stadium but chose not to go as he felt the late night travel home to Virar after the match would tire him for the next day's inter-school fixture. "It would have been great to see some of my heroes like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard in action from the boundary ropes but today's Giles..

Post-match presentation politics mars third IND v WI T20I at Wankhede Stadium

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ Cricket  
The smooth conduct of the third and final T20 International between India and West Indies by the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) was marred by a post-match presentation ceremony fiasco at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday night. As per protocol, Jayesh George, the joint secretary of the BCCI, handed over the paytm T20 trophy to Virat Kohli for India's 2-1 victory, while MCA president Dr Vijay Patil and secretary Sanjay Naik were part of the presentation party. The heartburn began when Naik presented the Star of the Match trophy to Kohli for his 29-ball unbeaten 70. The Man of the Match (KL Rahul), Man of the Series (Kohli), Gamechanger of the Match (Rohit Sharma) and Kamaal ka Moment (Bhuvneshwar Kumar) awards were presented by the sponsors, while MCA president Patil appeared to be a mute spectator. MCA Secretary Sanjay Naik; (left) MCA president Vijay Patil It is believed that this did not go down well with the newly-elected MCA chief although he didn't show his displeasure on the gr..
