Coach Kallis: KKR not considering sacking Karthik

13 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Sports  
Dinesh Karthik's leadership skills have come under scanner after Kolkata Knight Riders' five back-to-back defeats in the ongoing IPL but coach Jacques Kallis said that there has been no discussions on removing the under-fire captain. "No. We haven't discussed it, nor it had been brought up. So now there's been no talk about that," Kallis said when asked about a possibility of a shakeup like Rajasthan Royals where Ajinkya Rahane was removed for non-performance. "Hopefully, he [Karthik] can get in and get us some big runs. That will certainly mean a lot to the team and as much as he wants to do it," the South African great said of his skipper, who averages a dismal 16.71 from nine innings this season. However, it is learnt that the team's principal owner Shah Rukh Khan had called the top players to Mumbai. Also read: IPL 2019: KKR team divided?

Asian Games gold medallist and defending champion Swapna Barman settled for a silver in women's heptathlon while top medal contender Jinson Johnson pulled out of the men's 1500m race on the third and penultimate day of the Asian Athletics Championships here Tuesday. Barman, 22, logged 5993 aggregate points from the seven events to finish, second behind Ekaterina Vornina (6198 points) of Uzbekistan, while Purnima Hembram, the other Indian in the fray, was fifth with 5528 points. Barman's aggregate points yesterday was more than the 5942 she had logged while winning the gold in the last edition of the continental meet in 2017 but was less than the 6026 that she had accumulated in the Asian Games in Jakarta last year. With the silver from Barman, India's medal count now stands at two gold, four silver and five bronze.

IPL 2019: Russel will come up the batting order if situation demands, s

14 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Sports  
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) coach Jacques Kallis feels Andre Russell will definitely come up higher in the batting order if the situation demands. His remarks come after the underutilisation of Russell with the bat in the IPL match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday. "It certainly hadn't been one of our plans but if the situation arises then it's something we'll think of. It's a matter of what the team needs in such a situation and what the captain and management come up with, and we feel where each player is suited to play. But like I said, if a situation arises where Andre or someone else can come up the order, we've got to perhaps try one or two things a little differently," ESPN Cricinfo quoted Kallis as saying on Tuesday. Russell has been in a fine form in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as he has scored 392 runs at an average of 65.33 and a strike rate of 217.77. KKR lost the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad and as a result, they are positioned at the..
                 

Pep Guardiola: We are not scared of Manchester United

15 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Sports  
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said Old Trafford is no longer a "scary" place to visit ahead of tonight's derby at the home of Manchester United. Victory for City will keep the reigning champions on course to become the first team in English football history to win a treble of all three major domestic trophies in the same season. City boast an impressive run of five wins and a draw in their last seven league visits to Old Trafford — a sequence that includes 6-1 and 3-0 victories. Guardiola, however, refused to use that form guide as a reason for confidence, although he accepted a trip to Old Trafford was not as daunting as in previous years. "I don't make theories about what happened in the past for what is going to happen in the future," Guardiola told reporters yesterday. "Every game is completely different. Pep Guardiola The reason why is the fact this club in the last decade grew a lot and it is not scary to go there. Before it was maybe more difficult. The players ..

Kapil Dev: No cricketer has served India like Dhoni

17 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Sports  
Former India all-rounder Kapil Dev believes twin World Cup-winning captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the biggest contributor to the gentlemans game. Coming from the man who himself lifted the 1983 World Cup in England, this is no mean appreciation. As Dhoni walks into the last stretch of his international career, there has been quite a few statements made by former cricketers and pundits, especially after the most decorated captain hit a lean patch in 2018. For Kapil, however, it is all about respecting what Dhoni has achieved on the field. Speaking to IANS, Kapil said: "I don't have to say anything about Dhoni. I think he has served the country very well and we must respect him." It's almost certain that the showpiece event in England and Wales that kicks off on May 30, will be Dhoni's last and Kapil wants the former India skipper to finish on a high lifting another WC trophy. "No one knows how long he wants to play and how long his body can continue to take the workload. But, there ..

Shiva Thapa (60kg) secured himself an unprecedented fourth successive medal, while veteran L Sarita Devi (60kg) made the semi-finals for the first time in nearly a decade to continue India's stupendous run at the Asian Boxing Championships here yesterday. In all, eight Indian boxers - four women and four men - advanced to the medal rounds on Day Two of quarter-finals. Shiva, 25, defeated Thailand's Rujakran Juntrong in a one-sided contest, winning 5-0. He has a tough semi-final lined up against Kazakhstan's Zakir Safiullin, a silver-medallist from the 2015 edition. Thapa had won a gold in 2013, a bronze in 2015 and a silver in the 2017 edition of the marquee continental event. He is the first Indian to achieve the incredible feat. In the women's draw, former world champion Sarita, who last reached the Asian semis back in 2010 and ended with a gold, defeated Kazakhstan's Rimma Volossenko in a split decision to advance. Former junior world champion Nikhat Zareen (51kg) too booked her ..

The seasoned Harbhajan Singh is glad to be back in action after being laid low by health issues. The India off-spinner picked up the two crucial wickets of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow in Chennai Super Kings' six-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad here Tuesday night. "It's always nice to go out there in the middle, unfortunately I missed a few games due to sickness. My whole family was sick, in fact. Nice to be back, and really happy with the result as well," Harbhajan said at the post-match presentation ceremony. Watson brought back memories of last year's IPL final with a blazing knock of 96 that has almost ensured a play-off berth for CSK. Harbhajan said, "We would have liked to finish the game in the 19th over itself, but the boys were just testing our hearts. Somehow we have the tendency to take it to the last over. As long as we're getting the result, we're fine. "It's nice to see Shane Watson getting those runs under his belt. He's a serious player, last year he won us the..

EPL: Chelsea fourth despite 2-2 draw with Burnley

News / Mid-Day/ Sports  
Chelsea accused Burnley of time-wasting and playing "anti-football" after Blues boss Maurizio Sarri was sent off before a touchline skirmish marred their 2-2 draw on Monday. Chelsea fell behind to Jeff Hendrick's fine finish before N'Golo Kante equalised moments later. Gonzalo Higuain put Chelsea ahead, only for Burnley's Ashley Barnes to punish more dismal defending from the Blues. Chelsea will take comfort from climbing to fourth place. In a fitting coda to a damaging evening, Sarri was sent for protesting in the final seconds. "We are unhappy. There was too much time wasting. Five minutes injury time wasn't enough to compensate. We couldn't build important rhythm," Sarri's assistant Gianfranco Zola moaned. Chelsea defender David Luiz, said: "It's anti-football. Wasting time, especially when you have the ball.

Sri Lankan stalwarts - speedster Chaminda Vaas and left-arm spinner Rangana Herath, who have claimed 1262 international wickets together (Tests and ODIs), - have rated India's bowling attack as "perfectly balanced" and expect Virat Kohli & Co to reach the semi-final stage of the World Cup starting in England on May 30. "India have been dominating the last two-three years. They have good back-up fast bowlers and will do wonders. The Indian team is very balanced. My prediction is, India will definitely reach the semis," Vaas, 45, during Day One of the eighth Mitsui Shoji T20 League at Police Gymkhana yesterday. Vaas and Herath, who were the chief guests for the opening match, will be coaching youngsters in the city for the next few days. Herath considered the role of spinners as important as the pacers during the 50 overs tournament in England. He expects wrist spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav to come up with something special. "You may give away extra runs, but you nee..

Tonight will be RCB all-rounder Moeen Ali's last game in this season's IPL, after which he will take his place as an England all-rounder again. The man who has contributed the most to whatever little success RCB have enjoyed thus far, has mixed feelings about his premature return to England, which in a way shows the true pull of the IPL. "I feel like I'm a big part of the boys [at RCB] and I'll miss them. It's a shame but there's obviously the World Cup which is very important as well," said Moeen at a media interaction yesterday. "I needed to come and play the IPL. There is a lot of time you can spend in the nets here and improve your game, which is one of the best things about the IPL for foreign players," he added. The man is also fine with the game time he's got even if his batting position hasn't been the optimum one or if he hasn't bowled enough. "Obviously, the preference is to come in as early as possible, but with Virat and AB doing well it isn't really possible. But I am no..

World Cup memory: England win rain-affected thriller

13 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Sports  
Kepler Wessels and Andrew Hudson provided SA a rollicking start after being put into bat by injury-plagued England during a 1992 World Cup match at Melbourne. However, the Proteas couldn't really capitalise on the 151-run opening partnership between Wessels (85) and Hudson (79) as they eventually ended up posting 236-4 in 50 overs, which included 15 extra runs. England achieved the target with three wickets to spare, but not without some drama. Alec Stewart took centrestage this time with a fine knock of 77. England somehow managed to see off Allan Donald, who bowled with gusto in favourable conditions. Rain interrupted play when England were 62-0. Upon resumption, England's target was reduced to 226 runs from 41 overs. England immediately lost Ian Botham (22), Robin Smith (0) and Graeme Hick (1) to put the team in a spot of bother. Neil Fairbrother (75 not out) and Stewart managed to revive England's innings with a 68-run fourth wicket partnership. There was still some drama left as..

After helping Chennai Super Kings (CSK) return to winning ways by smashing a brilliant 96-run knock against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), opener Shane Watson admitted that he was due for runs and added that he was grateful to skipper M.S. Dhoni and coach Stephen Fleming for the faith they showed in him. Watson, who has not had a good outing so far in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), returned to his own and guided CSK to a convincing six-wicket win against SRH at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Tuesday. Chasing 176, CSK rode on a 53-ball knock from Watson to once again move to the top of the points table and almost seal their position in the playoffs. The veteran Australian batsman hit nine fours and six sixes. Before this innings, Watson's best score in the ongoing IPL was 44, which came almost a month ago. He was definitely due for a big score and another poor display might have seen him get replaced by Sam Billings. But the CSK team management continued to back W..

Rajasthan Royals all-rounder Ben Stokes took the Indian Premier League by storm in 2017 as he finished his debut season in the cash-rich league with 316 runs and 12 wickets from 12 games. However, post the high of that opening season, the Englishman struggled in 2018. And even this year, he has managed to score just 112 runs and picked six wickets from 8 games. But for the all-rounder, it is more important to move on, be the past bright or gloomy. Speaking to IANS, Stokes spoke about how the Royals have failed to be consistent, the infamous 'Mankad' episode, his own form this season as also what it takes to be one of the best all-rounders in world cricket and the way he looks to manage his workload. Commenting on the performance of the Royals, Stokes said: "I wouldn't quite say up and down as that would be a bit generous. We haven't performed anywhere near to the capabilities that we have. The games we have won, we have won the critical moments and it is a shame that we have managed ..
