The Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday registered a 10-run victory against Chennai Super Kings to go third in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 points table as their rivals slipped two spots and stood fifth. The Kings suffered another loss after everyone thought CSK would easily chase the target of 168. Electing to bat first, KKR seemed to have lost their way despite Rahul Tripathi’s 81 off 51. The team was looking at the total of 180 but ended at 167 in 20 overs.

Chasing KKR’s competitive total of 167, CSK started well with their bat despite losing Faf du Plessis early. Shane Watson’s 50 off 40 and Rayudu’s 30 off 27 laid a foundation for a comfortable run-chase. Watson and Ambati Rayudu together added 69 runs for their team.  CSK needed 67 in 7 overs and their scorecard read 101-2.

The match turned on its head in the 14th over of the innings when Sunil Narine dismissed Shane Watson. Mystery spinners Narine and Varun Chakravarthy operated the bowling end for the next two overs while Pat Cummins had just finished his fourth.

Rishabh Pant misses out 3rd T20I vs Australia, Rohit Sharma explains

Recently, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been under the scanner for his death bowling and facing criticism over his death bowling figures.

Team India’s wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant on Sunday missed out the series decider T20I against Australia at Hyderabad’s Rajive Gandhi Stadium.

With the series levelled at 1-1, India made just one change in their playing XI replacing wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant with pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

During the toss, team India skipper Rohit Sharma explained why Pant had to sit out the series decider.

The team only needed four bowlers in the previous match, which was reduced to an 8-overs-per-side contest. As a result, Bhuvneshwar had to sit out the game, and Pant was included in the playing XI, Sharma, who won the toss and elected to bowl first against Australia in the third and final T20I at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket in Hyderabad, said in the pre-match conference.

It’s good to be back in Hyderabad and play in front of this crowd. India is looking to maintain the winning momentum, so it was a good win for India in Nagpur. Australia have always been challenging, they bring in a different kind of challenge, Sharma said at the toss.

Recently, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been under the scanner for his death bowling and facing criticism over his death bowling figures. The pacer conceded 49 runs in the first match and also failed to pick a wicket.

Bhuvi has been good with the new ball but his bowling at the death has not been like the new ball. After conceding a lot of runs at death in Asia Cup, the pacer conceded 16 in the penultimate over in the first T20I which ended India’s hopes.

India’s bowling was poor in the Asia Cup and things haven’t changed till the 3rd T20I against Australia, despite the team bringing Harshal Patel back.

Apart from Axar Patel, who picked 3 wickets for 17 runs, every other bowler was left bruised by the Australian batters.

A day after shedding tears on being dismissed in what many former and current England cricketers called a pathetic way of being dismissed, England’s Charlie Dean on Sunday tried to run out non-striker during the final of the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy 2022 which is being played on Sunday at the same venue.

Playing for Southern Vipers against Northern Diamonds, Dean was bowling the 8th over of the game and decided to playfully run out non-striker end player Linsey Smith, who managed to keep her one leg inside the return crease.

With a caption, Charlie Dean less than 24 hours later, England’s Barmy Barmy shared a video of the same on social media.

Dean was into her run-up when she tried to emulate the same dismissal that had cost England the match on Saturday. However, non-striker Smith had her foot well within the crease. The two then shared a laugh over it.

Dean’s act led to Twitter full of reactions with most of them praising the all-rounder for moving on quickly from the controversy and showing a strong character.

England all-rounder Charlie Dean was in tears when she was dismissed by Deepti Sharma at the non-striker end during the final ODI against India at the Lord’s.
