Kuldeep Yadav

Team India gave their fans a reason to celebrate on Sunday when they defeated Sri Lanka to earn their eighth Asia Cup title. The Rohit Sharma-led squad appeared in fantastic form throughout the tournament, winning every game but one against Bangladesh.

In the last match, bowler Mohammed Siraj stole the show with a six-wicket haul and was named Player of the Match. Apart from him, spinner Kuldeep Yadav was named Player of the Series for his outstanding performance.

Kuldeep got a five-wicket haul against Pakistan, followed by a four-wicket haul against Sri Lanka. As Team India prepares for the forthcoming ODI series against Australia ahead of the World Cup 2023, BCCI chief selector Ajit Agarkar referred to Kuldeep as India’s trump card.

Agarkar remarked at a press conference that he has spent some time with him in the IPL. He’s a person with unique abilities. He also said, every person needs to be shown faith, and the Indian team management has done so, with positive results. He’s a trump card us us, the chief selector said. Most teams find him difficult to work with, he added.

The wrist-spinner has been rested for the first two One-Day Internationals against Australia, which begin on September 22. On September 27, he will join the team for the third and final ODI.

In addition to Kuldeep, skipper Rohit Sharma and star batter Virat Kohli have been rested for the first two matches. With the series, veteran spinner R Ashwin made his comeback to the ODI team and could be inducted into the Indian team for the World Cup if Axar Patel does not recover by the September 28 date set by the ICC.

Washington Sundar, an off-spinner, has also been named to the squad for all three games and is another backup option for the World Cup.

Rinku Singh breaks Virat Kohli’s gifted bat, asks for another one ahead of KKR vs RCB

Rinku Singh asked Virat Kohli for another bat after breaking the one he received after the last KKR vs RCB match

Kolkata Knight Riders batter Rinku Singh had a hilarious yet strange conversation with Virat Kohli ahead of the KKR vs RCB match at Eden Gardens. The clash, which is scheduled for Sunday, April 21, in Kolkata, is the rivalry’s inverse.

KKR destroyed RCB at their home ground, the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, in the first leg of the match. The players on both teams’ mutual admiration for one another was one of the rivalry’s highlights.

In that particular game, Virat Kohli had gifted one of his bats to Rinku Singh. Rinku, however, broke the bat when playing a spinner in the Indian Premier League, and he then wisely asked Kohli for a replacement bat before the KKR vs. RCB match.

KKR cameramen captured the event, whether it was scripted or not, as Rinku was seen telling Kohli that he had already broken his bat. A little angry Kohli asked for specifics of the whereabouts and questioned if Rinku was asking for a second bat as Rinku was examining two of his other bats. Before Rinku could respond, Kohli warned the KKR batsman that he would run into problems later in the tournament if he gave Rinku 2 bats in two matches.

In the video, Rinku was seen talking to Kohli, and was heard saying in Hindi that Bhaiya apki bat toot gayi, aapki kasam, dobara nahi todunga bat, to which Kohli replied 2 match mein tujhe 2 bat dun?

Meanwhile, the bat served as a token of appreciation for Rinku’s contributions to KKR and the Indian squad, as well as his rise to the position of finisher. In addition, the video showed the players from RCB and KKR conversing with one another following the game, demonstrating excellent sportsmanship and respect.

RCB has come to Kolkata in an attempt to restart their campaign. The team needs to win its final five games to have any chance of making it through the tournament.

Quinton De Kock overcame a scratchy start to hit 5 fours and a six in his 43-ball innings.

The LSG captain looked in fine touch as he played some magnificent strokes all round the park to give his team a solid start. The captain was harsh on Deepak Chahar as he hit the pace bowler for a 6, before slapping him for another maximum over cover. He also hit the pacer for a four off a slower ball.
