Debutants script India’s win vs England

India 6

There’s something about debutants for India in this series against England.  After Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav hogged the limelight in the recently-concluded Twenty20 series, Krunal Pandya and Prasidh Krishna made the big stage their own to hand India a convincing 66-run victory over world champions England in the first ODI of the three-match series in Pune on Tuesday. After under-fire opener Shikhar Dhawan delivered with a solid 98, Krunal (58 not out off 31) smashed the fastest fifty by …

India Win High-Scoring Tie, Clinch T20 Series

India 5

India seemed to have saved their best for the last. Having played catch up twice to level the series, India dished out top drawer stuff to clinch the fifth Twenty20 International by 36 runs and win the series 3-2. On a day when both the teams indulged in range-hitting out in the middle and the shirtfront of a wicket produced 412 runs, India withstood Dawid Malan (68; 46b, 4×9, 6×2) and Jos Buttler’s (52; 34b, 4×2, 6×4) assault to restrict …

The India-England Twenty20 series is living up to its billing as a battle between the top two sides in the shortest format of the game.

The series will now be decided in the last match on Saturday. Asked to bat first, India posted 185 for 8, their highest total in the series, thanks largely to a 31-ball …

Jos Buttler 2

It’s turning out to be a topsy-turvy series with India and England matching each other in every aspect in the five-match Twenty20 series. India skipper Virat Kohli’s brilliance proved not good enough as England humbled the hosts by eight wickets in the third T20 International in Ahmedabad to take a 2-1 lead in the series on Tuesday. England captain Eoin Morgan unleashed his fast bowlers Mark Wood (3/31) and Chris Jordan (2/35) to restrict the hosts for 156 for six, …

Kishan, Kohli maul England, help India draw level

Virat Kohli And Ishan Kishan

King Kohli is back. The India skipper’s unbeaten 73 off 49 balls powered his side to a comfortable seven-wicket win in the second T20 International against England in Ahmedabad on Sunday. But hold on. For a change, Virat Kohli was not the talking point of the day. But rather it was Ishan Kishan who made a memorable debut for India smashing 56 off 32 balls coming out to open the innings with KL Rahul, which laid the foundation of India’s …

India’s Mithali Raj climbs new summit, breaks glass ceilings

Mithali

India’s Mithali Raj will definitely feature in any discussion on longevity in sports. The veteran batswoman became the first Indian to complete 10,000 runs in women’s international cricket. Her 36 in the third One-Day International against South Africa took her to 10,001, making her only the second in the women’s game to reach the mark after England’s Charlotte Edwards who is ahead with a career-high 10,273 overall runs. Edwards played for 20 years, but Raj has done one better than …
