2nd ODI

India wants to put Australia under strain as it chases down 400 runs in the second ODI in Mohali by taking some early wickets. Earlier, India had a strong start, thanks to hundreds runs partnership from Shreyas Iyer (105) and Shubman Gill (104) before Suryakumar Yadav showed off his finishing prowess with a 72 not out off 37. After being asked to bat first, India amassed a mammoth 399 for 5 in 50 overs.

Both KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan attacked to get the game off to an exciting start. Australian bowlers knocked out Shreyas Iyer and Shubman Gill, but then they were contended with Rahul and Kishan.

Individual centuries from Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer, who both put up outstanding performances, furthered India’s overwhelming lead against Australia in the second ODI. After Sean Abbott removed Shreyas Iyer from the game, KL Rahul, the captain, is moving the game along with Shubman Gill.

Australia chose to bowl first after winning the toss. Team India got off to a sluggish start, and Ruturaj Gaikwad left early, but Shreyas Iyer eventually joined them. Shreyas Iyer was hitting Australian bowlers in all directions with Shubman Gill.

At the Holkar International Stadium in Indore, the Australian team will face the KL Rahul-led Indian team. With a victory in Indore, India will attempt to clinch the three-match series, while Australia will be looking for a way to salvage the match.

Since normal skipper Pat Cummins is taking a break, Steve Smith is leading Australia. In the meantime, Prasidh Krishna has taken the place of Indian bowler Jasprit Bumrah in the starting lineup.

The low boundaries of the Holkar Stadium will suit the hitters in the second One-Day International between India and Australia, which is predicted to be a high-scoring contest. The last time India played at Indore was in January of this year, when the team was captained by Rohit Sharma, who scored a massive 385 runs together with opening partner Shubman Gill.

Shubman Gill didn’t deserve to be India T20I captain: Amit Mishra

World Cup 2023: Shubman Gill hospitalized at Chennai’s Kaveri hospital due to low platelet count

Indian leg spinner Amit Mishra has criticised the decision to make Shubman Gill the captain of India’s T20 team.

In a podcast, Mishra said Gill has no idea of what it means to be a captain and is ignorant of the importance of the captain’s role. Mishra said he didn’t feel Gill could do justice to the responsibility of being a captain in the recently concluded T20I series against Zimbabwe.

He suggested Ruturaj Gaikwad was a better option. He said there is a sense that Gaikwad has been ignored by the BCCI and national selectors to support Gill. Even Gaikwad was overlooked as a backup player for the T20 World Cup 2024 and then for India’s captaincy in Zimbabwe.

Mishra didn’t hesitate in saying he wouldn’t have appointed Gill captain for the Zimbabwe series. He admitted the decision had surprised him.

Mishra clarified that he is not someone who hates Gill but believed that if someone was doing well that person deserved a chance and respect, like Gaikwad.

During the IPL, Mishra said Gaikwad as captain of Chennai Super Kings had scored vital runs in many different situations. He has the hallmark of a complete player and needs to be rewarded in ODIs and Tests as well.

Most important thing is that he brings calm to the team and doesn’t make such risky shots, Mishra said in his evaluation of the performances of Gill and Gaikwad in IPL matches.

Mishra said the other captaincy options were Sanju Samson and Rishabh Pant. He said these three, including Gaikwad, are players who can lead India in T20Is.

The leggie also spoke on several other controversial topics including the row involving Sanjeev Goenka and KL Rahul during the IPL and the fraught dynamics between Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir.

A few days after India’s World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev’s appeal, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Secretay Jay Shah has instructed the cricket board to release Rs 1 crore with immediate effect to provide financial assistance to India’s veteran cricketer Anshuman Gaekwad, who is battling blood cancer.

According to BCCI Apex Council, Shah has also spoken to Gaekwad’s family and took stock of the situation and provided assistance.

In the statement, the Council has stated that the board stands by Gaekwad’s family in this hour of crisis and will do whatever is essential for Gaekwad’s quick recovery. The BCCI will continue to monitor Gaekwad’s progress and is confident that he will come out of this phase strongly, the BCCI Apex Council further said.

Earlier, speaking to a Sports channel, Kapil said that he had written to BCCI requesting to lend financial support to Gaekwad, who is battling blood cancer alone and said he is ready to donate his pension to help him.

He further said that his former teammates such as Mohinder Amarnath, Sunil Gavaskar, Sandeep Patil, Dilip Vengsarkar, Madan Lal, Ravi Shastri and Kirti Azad have been generating funds to help Gaikwad, who has been undergoing treatment for the past year at King’s College Hospital in London.

Kapil showed his confidence in the BCCI going to take a look into the matter and extend its help to support the former India head coach Gaekwad financially. Kapil said he was saddened and depressed because he had played alongside Gaekwad and couldn’t bear to see him in this situation. No one should suffer, he added.

The cricket legend said he knows the Board will take care of him and not compel anyone. Any help for Anshu should come from the heart. Kapil further said that Anshu took blows to his face and chest when standing up to some of the ferocious fast bowlers. “Now is the time for us to stand up for him. I am sure our cricket fans will not fail him. They should pray for his recovery,” Kapil added.

Cricketer Kapil Dev has written to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) requesting to lend financial support to his former India teammate Anshuman Gaekwad battling blood cancer alone and said he is ready to donate his pension to help him.

Speaking to a Sports channel, Kapil Dev said his former teammates such as Mohinder Amarnath, Sunil Gavaskar, Sandeep Patil, Dilip Vengsarkar, Madan Lal, Ravi Shastri and Kirti Azad have been generating funds to help Gaikwad, who has been undergoing treatment for the past year at King’s College Hospital in London.

India’s World Cup-winning captain also highlighted the lack of a system and said it is great to see this generation of players make good money. It is good to see the support staff members also being paid well. He further said that, during his time, the Board did not have the money. Today, it has and should take care of the senior players from the past. But where they send their contributions, he wondered.

Kapil said if a Trust is formed, they can put their money there. He believed that BCCI should make a system where they look after the players, former and present. He said players are ready to contribute by donating our pension amount if the family allow them to.
