U-19 World Cup

Yashasvi Jaiswal century leads India to third straight Under-19 World Cup final

Having retreated with the collapse of 6 of 26, Pakistan U19 cannot pose any challenge to the Indian U19 pair Yashasvi Jaiswal and Divyaansh Saxena, who took part in an undefeated position of 176 to lead the defending champions by defeating the ten-wicket team, wins the semifinals the first of the Under-19 World Cup in Potchefstroom. India's victory led them to the third consecutive final and closer to the U-19 World Cup the winner from New Zealand and Bangladesh will play in the final on February 9. Jaiswal reached a hundred years in the championship with six goals to win India, while Saxena remained undefeated in 59. Pakistan, which chose to hit, seemed on course to reach a respectable sum when it placed its first game Haider Ali and Captain Rohail Nazir in half a century for the third wicket. The duo helped Pakistan recover from 34 to 2 at nine, but Haider fell shortly after he reached his 50s while trying to cut out Jaiswal in half the time. With 96 vs. 3 in 26, Hider’s share marked the progress of Pakistan significantly, as Nazir saw four more in front of him. Rapid India, Sushant Mishra, and Kartik Tyagi did most of the damage, exchanging five shares between them, while Ravi Bishnoi finished two out of 10 injuries. The collapse of Pakistan began on Day 35, with a score of 146 for 4, and Saxena made a great effort on the deep square leg to cause the slide. It seems that Mohamed Haris' pass from left-arm spinning raised by Ankolekar was destined for four rebounds, but Saxena ran a pigeon of his entire length to complete the acquisition a few centimeters from the ground. This effort prompted other Indian players to improve their game, and Tyagi made three yorker strikes later to defeat Irfan Khan. Just five balls later, Vishnu managed to arrest Abbas Afridi with a controversial decision when Pakistan fell to 163 versus 7. And foreboding was given to 62, three, and 44, and ended 172.India's persecution began with caution, as Saxena and Jaiswal scored less than four goals for more than 15 games. They played the new ball in cloudy conditions with strong crosswinds blowing on the ground, which did not provide any opportunity for Pakistan to return to the game through early wickets.After Jaiswal got fifty out of 66 balls in 22, he started using his feet against the spindles to hit long or pull the pacemakers off the field. Saxena hit the ball on the floor for most of her roles and left Jaiswal the assailant. Saxena reached her fifties in the 1930s when she was driving to cover 83 balls, and the demand rate has now been reduced to two halves each. Saxena scored six goals while Jaiswal scored eight, four and six players, of whom one took a hundred and India won. After stamping the chase, Jaiswal raised his arms in the air, looked up and accepted the chain around his neck.Nazeer praised the archers in India for their effort but said that Pakistani strikers cannot reach their potential.Hard, but cricket is about the game. Team wins, and today we don't play cricket well. India was better in this area with bowling. "They beat us," said Nazer at the post-match press conference. When I was hitting Haider, we were improving. But after Haider jokes, we do not build associations."That's why the hitting squad failed to get big runs. With the hit, our pick of opportunity was weak at the decisive moment. Three mid-order texts at a low price fell in deflation. Because there weren't enough races on board the plane, our players cannot penetrate either. "The game got the best attendance of all the matches in the tournament so far, with followers from Pakistan twice as many as from India. Cheers, friendly and unfriendly, rang through GB Marx Oval from both sides, Pakistani voices dwindled as the game progressed. India has now reached the level with Pakistan regarding the U-19 World Cup record face to face on both sides. Jaiswal tops the race record lists in this edition, after winning the fourth score of more than 50 in five games. India's victory was also the first victory for ten wins in the knockout history of the U-19 World Cup. Read More: India vs New Zealand: Prithvi Shaw returns to Test squad; Mayank Agarwal replaces Rohit Sharma in ODIs

Copa del Rey has Real Sociedad, Athletic Bilbao, Granada, and second-division club Mirandes as its four semi-finalists, after both Real Madrid and Barcelona failed to make it to the last four in a decade.The new edition of the Copa del Rey claimed the largest number of casualties on Thursday, and Real Madrid and Barcelona were eliminated in the last eight.Real Madrid lost 4-3 to Real Sociedad at home, before Barcelona scored a late goal to lose 1-0 against Athletic Bilbao on the most surprising night in a competition filled with surprises.Valencia also lost the defending champions on Tuesday and Villarreal were excluded on Wednesday. Sevilla and Atletico Madrid had already been sent off in previous rounds.The semifinals will only be played in two stages this season, giving smaller clubs more chances to beat larger teams.The last four surprises will also include Granada and the second division club Mirandes. This is the first time in ten years that neither Madrid nor Barcelona have reached the last four cup games, as at least one of the Spanish powers reached the final each year since the 2009-10 season when Seville won the title. Barcelona reached the final in the past six years in a row."This is the new Copa," said Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets. "We are playing a game, away from home, and in one play you are eliminated."Real Sociedad finished a series of unbeaten matches in Madrid 21 by beating Santiago Bernabeu to reach the semi-finals for the first time in six years.Athletic beat Barcelona thanks to the winner of Inaki Williams three minutes after the end of the second half, adding to the difficulties faced by the club since coach Ernesto Valverde expelled him and replaced him with Kick Sitan.Barcelona has not yet been affected by the new coach, and the players and managers of the club have disagreed recently."I think we have taken a step forward. We are playing better than our opponent," Setien said. "Everything went well, except for the result."Barcelona dominated during the second half and was on the verge of breaking the deadlock with clear potentials for Antoine Griezmann and Lionel Messi. But it was Athletic who found the late winner when Williams threw a header in the far corner after the Ibai Gomez crossing.Athletic, the second most successful club in the cup with 23 championships, behind Barcelona, needed a penalty shootout to advance against second division clubs in the previous two rounds.Messi appeared in its seventy-fifth session in the Cup, in keeping with Joseph Samiter's record in Barcelona since 1932.Real Sociedad's victory stopped a series of eight wins in Madrid and gave the club its first defeat in all competitions since October.He also ended Madrid's hopes of winning the cup competition for the first time since 2014.Real Sociedad, semi-finals in 2014, will seek to win the third Copa del Rey Cup, the first since 1987."Our fans deserve a prize like this," said Real Sociedad coach Imanol Alguacil. "This victory means a lot, it comes in full Bernabeu, against a team like Real Madrid, with our team playing well." You can imagine how we feel now. "Visitors dominated most of the match, but Madrid was about to return after scoring goals in the second half."We did everything we had in the end, but it was too late," said Madrid defender Marcelo. "It is difficult to come back after receiving four goals at home. It is disappointing, but we still have other competitions."Madrid was partly dominant thanks to their strong defense, having only received 13 goals in 22 Spanish league matches.The young Norwegian playmaker Martin Odegaard, who played for Real Sociedad on loan from Madrid, did not celebrate after he opened the scoring in the 22nd minute of the match after being saved by Madrid goalkeeper Alphonse Areola.Young Swedish striker Alexander Issac joined the lead two minutes into the second half, a shot in the 54th and a shot in the top corner in the 56thIsaac, 20 years old, has scored in five consecutive games, already scored an offside goal after reviewing the video just a few minutes after the break.Marcelo approached Madrid with a low shot from inside the area in 59th, but Mikel Merino again increased the advantage for visitors at close range in 69th.Rodrygo scored second in Madrid in 81st, two minutes after Vinicius Jr.'s goal was canceled by the video review. The third came through ahead from Nacho Ramos three minutes after the time of detention.Real Sociedad defender, Andoni Gorosabel, was sent off before the final whistle.

How will Big Six benefit from the new replacement rule?

  • Jun 09, 2020
  • pitchhigh
  • 585

The rule change is uneven because 'Big Six' - Liverpool, City, Chelsea, United, Arsenal, and Spurs - have high-quality bench power and can carry peer-to-peer alternatives.IFAB approved the FIFA proposal last month.As the Premier League prepares to restart on June 17, the authorities allowed five substitutions per match, instead of three, in the remaining nine rounds. However, there is a school of thought that changes will work for the great.Is the change in the mid-competition rule legal?Completely legal. Last month, the (IFAB) International Football Association Board approved the FIFA proposal and allowed for a temporary change to the remaining matches of the 2019-20 season. "IFAB agreed to make a temporary amendment to the laws of the game on the basis of a proposal received from FIFA seeking to protect the welfare of players," said the FIFA. Teams will have three chances to make these five replacements and will also be allowed to have nine players on the bench instead of seven. Some Bundesliga clubs used five substitutes after restarting.Why did FIFA suggest the change?FIFA has suggested this keeping in mind managing the player's workload during football after COVID-19. The three-month layoff period affects players' fitness. In addition, a tight schedule increases the risk of infection and there is a risk of excluding players if they become infected with the coronavirus. "The concern in this regard is that the frequency of matches is higher than normal, which may increase the risk of potential injury due to the player's overload," FIFA said in a statement.In the context of the Premier League, why is change so uneven?Simply because "Big Six" - Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur - have high classic bench strength and can withstand similar substitutes. Minor clubs, in terms of money, have no extra wealth. As reported by Telegraph Sport, Wolverhampton Wanderers only used 20 players in this period. Wolves are sixth on the table with 43 points and the change appears to be giving a clear advantage to their four main rivals such as United, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Spurs. Leicester City, currently third with 53 points, has used 21 players so far. United, on the other hand, used 25 in the Premier League, while Chelsea used 24.Has any club opposed change?Yes, Aston Villa, Bournemouth and West Ham United have reportedly voted against change. They are all caught in downhill scrap. For example, on July 1, West Ham is scheduled to play against Chelsea. Now, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has the option of resorting to players such as Antonio Rudiger, Ross Barkley, Callum Hudson-Odoi, or Olivier Giroud if he wants to spin his players. On the other hand, Hammers manager David Moyes may have to resort to someone like Ben Johnson who has not yet played a minute in the Premier League this season.How did the change work in Bundesliga?The German Bundesliga has benefited from this in terms of workload management and intensity maintenance. "You can see in the first games that after 60 or 70 minutes, the players were really tired because there were no preparations or friendly matches." It was a really good thing. "We have avoided injuries," Simon Rolfs, sports director of Bayer Leverkusen, was quoted by the Telegraph Sport newspaper as saying.article source: indianexpressimg source: usa today postAlso Read: Premier League allows 5 substitutes when season restarts

Serbian legend Novak Djokovic does not seem to hang tennis rackets any time soon. Also, his victories at Grand Slam stadiums do not seem to stop at the highest level in every game he plays.World number one Djokovic has denied former rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal on numerous occasions to add more major titles to their name. He is also one of the reasons why NextGen Tennis has not achieved a breakthrough in the Grand Slam stages.The main champion for 17 times, Djokovic revealed his motivation for hitting the ball hard and harder with the passage of days. First of all, I must say that I am in a very special position and role. Novak told Wish & Go Podcast: “I have been a very successful person in popular sports around the world. It feels like I have a loudspeaker in my hand. There aren't many athletes in this privileged position. I won it with my success and I am grateful for that. It is one of the reasons I still play professional sports."He said: "The most important reason is that I love it, I love competition, and the second is that I feel that the terrain inside me causes a storm of emotions, which I cannot experience anywhere else in such a short time." He said.Novak Djokovic on his priorities besides tennisIn addition to tennis and its unparalleled competitiveness in the professional tennis circuit, Novak tends evenly towards the health sector. He participates extensively and uses his platform effectively to spread awareness of mental and physical health.In addition, Novak, 33, is passionately spreading the importance of education among children. His foundation works proactively to ensure that disadvantaged children receive a quality education.

FSU Football News: FSU football coaches continue to work hard to rate players in the 2022 recruitment cycle. Their latest offer from Maryland is in great shape.FSU football has gained a lot of ground on the 2022 Recruitment Council, with the training team offering over 170 recruits so far making it big in FSU football news.It is one positive because of the epidemic that has closed recruitment visits, as it gives coaches time to evaluate more tapes as they begin to form the necessary relationships with aspiring players.Their latest offer goes on the ball's defensive side to four-star Jaishawn Barham from Hyattville, Maryland."I am blessed to receive an offer from Florida State University," said Jaishawn Barham on twitter.ThoughtsHe is registered with 6'3 ″ and 230 lbs and is considered the 40th nationally and the No. 3 outside linebacker and the No. 2 player in Maryland according to 247 Sports.Barham does not have a composite rating at this time but has 19 offers from FSU, Florida, Arizona State, Maryland, Michigan, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Penn State, South Carolina, Texas A&M, Virginia and Virginia Tech, among others. This is the most popular thing in FSU football news.He has offers from almost every senior officer, especially the big shows that enlist the Maryland area apart from Alabama. Maybe this offer will come sometime.Barham has a good physique and is physically ready to play college football. The crazy thing is that I wouldn't be surprised if he'd grown defensively because he has stil left with two more years of high school.He's meet FSU's soccer need, whether he stays back or becomes a defensive end, so this is a good deal. There are no 247 predictions for Crystal Ball for him right now, and Penn State is the only school he has visited at this time.Noles offer comes a little late considering that some of these schools offered him in January 2019. However, they do have time to make an impression, and as with everything about employment, we will have to see if they can get him on campus.img source: tomahawknationarticle source: chopchatAlso Read: NFL Preseason: NFL discusses shortening preseason, according to report

GTA Online on PS5 shows us Rockstar’s real priority now

GTA Online on PS5 shows us Rockstars real priority now

Sony has noted in a press release that the "enhanced and expanded" versions of the current GTA 5 and GTA games online will be released in 2021. This was announced during the "Future of Games" event from Sony, confirming the launch of PlayStation 5. However, It did not show any screenshots of what the new version of the game would be like.Sony PS5, which started with the Rockstar logo, briefly revealed people's enthusiasm, to make everyone understand that the developer in the open world is relaunching the multifaceted action game, but for next-generation consoles. Of course, there will be bells and whistles, with Rockstar promising technical and optical improvements as well as performance improvements. However, after a few generations of the game itself, we are approaching diminishing returns for the new experiences that GTA 5 has to offer, and fans know it. Rockstar's decision here is clear, of course: GTA 5 was just one of its best years in 2019, and with the latest decision to briefly release the game for free, the player base will likely continue to explode. After all, Epic Games Store couldn't keep up with the volume of people trying to download GTA 5 for free in mid-2020. Why did this momentum stop just because the new consoles will be released in a few months?This hidden PS5 announcement was the biggest news that Rockstar would not only bring back GTA 5, but would also launch GTA Online as MMO as a standalone experience in 2021. Those who update will receive "new updates" and " exclusive content "and the player experience will be Multiplayer. It will be free on PS5 for the first three months after launch. However, to entice people to start playing now, Rockstar says that all PlayStation Plus members will receive a million dollars in the game every month that signs in to play GTA Online. While no details are shared, these vague promises actually seem more substantial, in terms of content, than any improvements made to the main part of the game.Read More: Online Games: Top 10 Most Popular Online Games in 2020Rumor has it that Rockstar's next big project is in its early stages of development, so there is something to expect, perhaps with real storytelling. But if GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 were any indication, then what Rockstar would launch would then probably share a similar strategy: launching a massive game that could stand on its own, but ultimately served as a drug to monetize the multiplayer experience. Multiplayer will be supported for years and will potentially become a major source of income. Meanwhile, solo discount: GTA 5 may be on sale permanently, if not delivered for free, as evidenced by the appearance of Red Dead Redemption 2 on Xbox Game Pass.It's not wrong that Red Dead Redemption 2, even after having sold it very well, did not receive solo extensions, but many updates online. It's no mistake that GTA 5 hasn't received any updates for a single player, but it has so much content for GTA Online that it could soon be presented as a standalone experience.While Rockstar argues that the lack of additions for the single-player was "not a conscious choice" when it comes to GTA 5, it followed the same approach when it came to the West. In the case of Red Dead Redemption 2, a long-term online goal was planned, according to a developer last year. why not? By accepting Special Take-Two, the multiplayer chips of these two games contribute to more than half of the company's revenues.GTA Online independently reports a change, although it has been going on for years. By breaking away from the single-player mode, Rockstar opens up many different possibilities that are not dictated by basic game restrictions. Who knows what GTA Online will look like in two years? At this point, fans who request solo additions may be in the minority in the face of the number of people playing and spending money on Rockstar's multiplayer worlds.Read More: Free Online Games?

NFL Preseason Games: What to expect if the NFL has a two-match preseason in 2020

NFL Preseason Games: The National Football League faces the potential of two games this year, a radical departure from the four-season schedule they are used to.Last week, Tom Pelissero reported that NFL and NFL players are discussing the shortening of the 2020 season. A halving of the season will allow for a longer acceleration period, giving players time to prepare physically to participate in a training camp and games coming from an unusually reduced period because of the epidemic of COVID-19.Two-game preseason raises questions like: How many teams should you start in the first place? Should player Joe Burrow take some preseason snapshots? How about Tom Brady, who will be 43 in August? How do teams like Chicago hold a quarter-finals contest?This is where the NFL (National Football League) preseason games can learn a lot from the Canadian Football League, which has played a two-game season for years. I recently spoke to two former NFL coaches who also have extensive CFL experience on how NFL teams deal with this change, provided the League and NFLPA come to an agreement. Here is what I collected:Pre-season will favor the experienced teams. With the massive elimination of pre-season game events, call cards can be limited early in an attempt to avoid mysterious skilled players and new players in low-exposure plans. Organizations with new players in skill positions, especially midfielders, are more likely to focus on playing run games and screens early in the regular season, allowing the game to evolve over time, while teams with strong continuity starting in 2019, They would be better off to post their full game plans earlier.How might practices be? Practices are likely to involve more situational strategies, stealing time for individual and basic periods. Expect less live climbs, with more rounds during 11 to 11 sessions and more mock drill exercises.How will teams deal with playing time in the season? One of the sources said that their starters didn't play in the CFL season, except for the offensive streak, which was getting used to playing together. Maintaining the health of your best players in the opening game of this season was more important than getting them to take a few replays. It is not unlikely that a seasoned midfielder will play in the one-quarter of the game in CFL preseason, but it is doubtful how much really helps. For junior midfielders such as Bengals' Burrow, if they know enough about the system, they can play to cope with the speed of the NFL preseason games.Mid-fielders development and competitions. There is limited time to evaluate backups, which you see most of the time played in the NFL preseason games. Removing two valuable action matches on the field may harm teams with small QBs. Look at Dwayne Haskins in Washington. He had eight quarters of NFL pre-season action last year to learn as a beginner before finally taking up the initial job in the middle of the regular season. Imagine how hard things Haskins would have faced had he played in just four quarters in the NFL preseason games, giving him less time to develop before being pushed into action in the regular season. Or consider Aaron Rodgers, who had three years of four NFL preseason games to prepare before replacing Brett Favre as Green Bay's QB1. He was well trained and had time to develop.Quarterback competitions will be determined by what coaches see in practice and in NFL pre-season games. This will not change. The most important QBs are likely to divide playing time in both games NFL preseason games, as each QB gets the same starting. Beyond that, what will ultimately help determine who gets the starting job will be more competitive situations (including in full scrimmages and simulated games) that will be recorded in practice.Also Read: NFL Preseason: NFL discusses shortening preseason, according to report

Speaking on Ellen Show, he said, "You know, everyone is asking me, did Tom (Brady) take you to Tampa?"

Liverpool wins Premier League

Liverpool wins the Premier League to end 30 years of wait

Liverpool crowned the Premier League champion after Manchester City lost their match against Chelsea.Liverpool crowned the Premier League champions without kicking the ball on Thursday when Chelsea's 2-1 victory over Manchester City ended their 30-year wait to win the English title. Jurgen Klopp's men concluded the 19th league title in the club with seven games to play after second place city's defeat leaving them with 23 points. Liverpool moved into two points from the title with Crystal Palace 4-0 demolished in Anfield on Wednesday.Their twenty-eighth victory in 31 league games this season led Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah to the announcement "It is our time to win the league" and 24 hours later his wish was granted.Liverpool got the benefit they wanted from Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.Willian's 78th-minute penalty, awarded by Fernandinho's handball, ended the city's reign which was for two years as champions after Kevin de Bruyne canceled the first match of Christian Polisic.Liverpool won the title before any other Premier League champion, breaking the previous record of five games left by City and Manchester United.It was a painful wait for Liverpool fans around the world, as the coronavirus gap forced them to put the champion on ice after the Premier League suspension in March with the Club team winning two titles.The delay of three months was the last hurdle on the road to Liverpool's long journey to the summit of English football.Liverpool spent years with rivals Manchester United during the Alex Ferguson era before falling behind due to the massive spending from Manchester City and Chelsea.Then, managed by Brendan Rodgers, they missed a notorious golden opportunity to win the title in 2014 when Reds captain Stephen Gerrard made a costly slip in losing the late-season against Chelsea.But the Klopp's team deserved the heroes after an amazing campaign that could end in record style.Klopp's men can break the record for the highest winning margin, which City scored when they finished 19 clear points at the top in the same season.They are also within walking distance of most Premier League wins: 32 by city in 2017/18 and 2018/19.We can play wellKlopp, the first German coach to win the Premier League, has been the architect of the Liverpool Renaissance since the former Borussia Dortmund head arrived at Anfield in 2015.Influenced by his players' belief in "heavy metal" soccer and his "fast-paced" plan, the magical Klopp took its place alongside Liverpool's iconic managers Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley, and Kenny Dalglish.When Dalglish brought Liverpool to the title in 1990, the award Shankly once described as "bread and butter" for the club.After years of poor performance, Klopp returned in his unique style and brought trophies to Liverpool.They won the Champions League last season when they beat Tottenham in the final, 12 months after losing to Real Madrid in the same stage of the competition.It was fitting for Liverpool to save one of its most striking offers for the week in which it won the title.After the palace was destroyed, Klopp said: "Imagine if the stadium were full and people would have experienced it live. It would have been amazing."Article source: ndtvAlso Read: FSU Football News: Tayon Holloway offered by Florida State

Conor McGregor moved to Instagram and previewed the sports collaboration that was in progress. UFC's superstar has announced Reebok Tracksuit to his fan base of around 37 million followers. Reebok has expressed interest in working with Connor McGregor from the beginning of the fighting game.Conor McGregor: Don't slow downToday, The Notorious One is the largest single entity in MMA and shows no signs of slowing down. Conor McGregor adds to his long list of commercial projects outside the appraiser. The timing of the announcement looks totally bizarre after just days of reports that UFC and Reebok will part ways. According to Ariel Helwani of ESPN, UFC may consider different options in the coming new year.“In an interview with @LeBatardShow earlier today, Dana White said that the Reebok deal will end, at the end of this year, and they are talking to companies about a new deal,” Halawani said on Twitter. "I heard the same thing. For the time being, we won't be surprised if the two sides separate."Reebok: A Brief HistoryReebok mainly entered the field of combat sports when it entered into a clothing deal with UFC in 2015. The promotion was looking at various ways to simplify sports, and they went on to a uniform clothing line. Per Dana White has reviewed several options but Reebok was at the top of the ranking. Reebok distinguished itself as it looked forward to organizing combat sportswear for men and women.Moreover, since the time of the partnership, it has been reported that athletes like Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor will have a personal line.The partnership between UFC and Reebok came with its fair share of complications. Many fighters have strongly opposed the merger since its official announcement. The general consensus was that a unified deal would result in significant losses in terms of personal care. Not to mention that many fighters claimed to have lost 6-digit income from former existing sponsors in light of the new deal.It seems that regardless of the UFC's future with Reebok, Conor McGregor continues to expand beyond the appraiser. In addition, the McGregor star continues to burn brightly even after apparently turning away from the appraiser.Also Read: Khabib Nurmagomedov VS Justin Gaethje at UFC 253

Fans and critics still remember how the Delhi boys went into a verbal battle in 2013 during the IPL match when the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) hosted the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the M Chinnaswamy stadium.However, the cause of this battle is still unknown. Gambir and Kohli both played down the accident on many occasions, but the man who separated the duo from the confrontation recently spoke on the same thing.Rajat Bhatia, who tried to stop Gambir and Kohli, did his best to calm things down, recently spoke to the Asianet Newsable, and said that he was just very competitive players who act very strangely in the midst of this moment."This is something that happened when two aggressive leaders played, and always wanted to do their best and win their teams." "Even if they had some kind of collision in that match, that was just part of the game," said Bhatia, who was part of the KKR team in that match."Later on, I didn't see them fighting (Gambir and Kohli). In the midst of the moment, many things happen. But, it shouldn't happen for the worst. The 40-year-old added," It wasn't like that on that day. "In that match, RCB won that match with eight wickets over KKR. After chasing 155 to win, the hosts rode Chris Gayle's sparkling punch 85 strokes to hit the target with 15 balls to spare.Young Kohli scored 35 before being caught by Ewen Morgan outside Lakshmipathi Balaji in the tenth final. It was his class that led to an unpleasant conflict during the celebration of KKR.article source: crickettimesAlso Read: India May Tour South Africa In August For Three-Match T20I Series

Wisden utilized CricViz, the detailed cricket analysis tool for his performance analysis.The amazing Jadeja MVP rating was 97.3, second only to Muttiah Muralitharan from Sri Lanka, which made him the Most Valuable Player in test format in the 21st century."It might be surprising to see Ravindra Jadeja, one of the best all-rounder in India, as number one in India. After all, it is not always an automatic choice in the test team. However, when he plays, he is chosen as a frontline player and has batted number 6, Which contributes to the high turnout in the game, " Cricviz’s Freddie Wilde told Wisden."The 31-year-old’s bowling average of 24.62 is better than Shane Watson and his 35.26 batting average is also better than Shane Watson." The average differential of 10.62 between batting and bowling is the second-best in this century scoring more than 1,000 points and taking 150 wickets. He added that it is an all-rounder vehicle of the highest quality.After making its debut in 2009, Jadeja represented India in 49 Tests, 165 ODIs, and 49 T20Is so far.The 31-year-old’s bowling average of 24.62 was better than Shane Warren and his 35.26 average batting was better than Shane Watson.Earlier on Monday, Jadeja was trending on Twitter with fans participating in an online discussion on "Who's the Best", Ravindra Jadeja, or Krunal Pandya.However, the comparison between the two seemed completely unfair given that Jadeja is a seasoned activist and Krunal Pandya made its debut in India in 2018 and only appeared in 18 T20I so far.Also Read: IPL News: Rajat Bhatia talks about the ugly dispute in IPL between Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli

Iowa Football: The Iowa Athletics Department announced on Tuesday budget cuts of about $ 15 million for the next fiscal year as a result of a coronavirus, and many Hawkeyes coaches and senior managers will take voluntary future pay cuts in a year.In a press release, Iowa officials said that the Athletics Department budget for the previous fiscal year was $ 124.8 million and the projected budget for the period 2020-21 was $ 127.5 million. It decreased to $ 112.5 million after it was cut to $ 13 million in operating expenses and about $ 2 million in compensation.Gary Barta, Iowa's director of sports, said that women's basketball coaches Lisa Bluder, American football coach Kirk Ferentz, men's basketball coach Fran McCaffrey and wrestling coach Tom Brands voluntarily agreed to cut the 15%  of the basic salary for one year.Barta will cut his total compensation by more than 30%, and AD Barbara Burke has agreed to cut wage by 25%."None of this is easy for our coaches and staff," Barta said in a statement. "I appreciate your continued understanding in these unstable times. We have been dealing with the epidemic in such a financial situation that requires difficult decisions. It is our responsibility to maintain a financially responsible process while providing the highest level of service to our student athletes."Iowa officials said compensation cuts would be implemented throughout the athletic division on a sliding scale based on annual salary.“I’m concerned about our employees and realize that lowering wages will have a major impact on many families across the department. I want to thank all of our employees for their support and understanding because we worked during this process,” said Barta. "We are trying to balance the necessary financial cuts by spreading the sacrifice carefully."Barta said the announced budget and cuts were based on assumptions that upcoming football and basketball seasons would be played in the presence of the fans. If not, the Hawkeyes may have to make more significant cuts."These are tough times with a lot of uncertainty," said Berta.Article source: espnAlso Read: FSU Football News: Tayon Holloway offered by Florida State

The Welterweight opponent was in a state of ripping within the promotional offer with 8 consecutive professional victories. Not to mention that he scored victories over Rafael Dos Anjos, Gunnar Nelson, and Donald Cerrone.His last defeat in December 2015 was the undisputed champion, Kamaru Usman. However, his vast autobiography failed to help him capture a clear path for Welterweight gold. Leon Edwards: A "rocky" periodMoreover, his linear and non-controversial approach within the appraiser failed to attract the fighting fans.

The stage for the IPL to take place this year has been decided after the postponement of the T20 World Cup. © TwitterHighlights• The postponement of the T20 World Cup opened a window for IPL 2020• The BCCI has considering two places: India and the United Arab Emirates• The International Cricket Council postponed the T20 World Cup on MondayThe International Cricket Council announced on 20 July, the postponement of the 2020 World Cup, paving the way for the establishment of a window for the Indian Premier League.The postponement of the ICC T20 World Cup has opened a window to this year's Indian Premier League. The rich league appears to be back after being postponed in April due to a Coronavirus pandemic. However, concerns remained over the place. BCCI has two places to consider: India and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Their favorite site is India, but as the incidence of coronavirus infection increases, they decide to get a backup site. The United Arab Emirates also hosted the first phase of IPL 2014.A proposal to organize the league will be sent to the government after the IPL Board meeting this weekend, with two windows proposed to organize 60 games.BCCI prefers the window between September 26 and November 7, while broadcasters want to host it between September 26 and November 14, to make the most of it during the Diwali weekend.However, the Indian team is traveling to Australia for a series of four tests, starting from December 3, the council will have to plan a clear quarantine window before starting the chain.For the time being, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will seek to provide plans for the biosafety site and process of bringing in players, ensuring their health and safety in the midst of an endemic epidemic.On Monday, the International Cricket Council revealed the revised dates for its next three global events in men's cricket, including the 2023 World Cup in India.The International Cricket Council said in a statement that Men's T20 World Cup 2021 will be held from October to November 2021 with the final on November 14, 2021.It added that the ICC T20 2022 World Cup will take place from October to November in 2022 with the final on November 13, 2022.The International Cricket Council did not mention the location of the T20 World Cup finals in 2021 and 2022.Also Read: IPL News: Rajat Bhatia talks about the ugly dispute in IPL between Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli

NFL Preseason: The NFLPA tells players that there will be no Preseason matches in 2020

NFL's Mike Garafolo, Tom Pelissero, and NFL Network informer Ian Rapoport reported that the NFL Players Association told its players on Tuesday that there will be no games Preseason games in 2020.The union leadership shared this information with its players during a group call one day after the league proposed a list for one match for the federation, then followed it later in the day with a narrow bid that included no pre-season matches. NFL and NFLPA were previously divided on the list of pre-season, and the league maintained the desire to play half of the typical four-season schedule before agreeing this week.The NFL also told its members that it still pays longer for players to physically adapt to the requirements of a professional soccer field, and lists are expected to be 80 players per team. The National Football Association is still signing a list of 80 men for a training camp, according to Pelissero, and although there is debate about giving teams an option to split the list (i.e. 80 workers and 10 pending), the association has told players that it wants all teams to follow a rule.The federation said it has a general agreement with the league on high-risk prospects and the possibility of withdrawal, and another general agreement on compensation in matches lost due to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic. The main economy still needs to be divided between the two sides, and details of general agreements must also be finalized, but the two sides have agreed on the concept.Players flocked to social media over the weekend to publicly press the NFL to take their desires seriously in health and safety protocol discussions, which included the desire to complete August without any preseason games. While ensuring this appears to be almost guaranteed, both sides can move on to the next set of issues as they aim to lay the groundwork for operations at this unprecedented time.Also Read: NFL Preseason: Texas DE J.J.

IPL 2020: This means that after the T20 World Cup in Australia was postponed, the Board of Control for Cricket in India set a 51-day window for IPL, the same as last year, ruling out more double addresses.The deferred version of the Indian Premier League (IPL) to be played in the United Arab Emirates will begin on September 19, and the final will be played on November 8. Brijesh Patel, Chairman of the IPL, confirmed the schedule on Friday, although the Indian board is still waiting for a green signal from the government to take out IPL from India."We have written to the Indian government. We hope to get a response very soon. Once it arrives, a meeting of the IPL Board of Directors will be held next week to finalize all other details."This means that after the T20 World Cup in Australia was postponed, the BCCI set a 51-day window for the IPL, like last year, ruling out more double addresses. Having two games on the same day has become a conflict with broadcasters, who cannot take advantage of afternoon games in the same way as night games. Even when double heads are scheduled, they are booked on weekends. The same formula will be applied when the program is finally formed.When the board meets next week, it will have to make other decisions, whether it is possible to maintain home and visitor coordination this year or not. There are three locations in the United Arab Emirates: Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, and Dubai, where matches can be organized. Dubai itself has two reasons; In addition to the main stadium, there is also the ICC Academy ground where T20 International Associated Nations was organized. In addition, the spending modalities must be completed, the amount the concessions will incur, and the board. Patel said, "All these matters will be decided by the Governing Council."The meeting will also decide whether IPL-13 may have limited crowds, now that the COVID-19 situation has become better there. "We will seek advice from the UAE government if we can have crowds," he said.With each team needing at least a month to train, the franchise is expected to leave the base before August 20, giving them exactly four weeks to prepare.Also Read: The NFLPA tells players that there will be no Preseason matches in 2020

The Indian Premier League (IPL) Governing Council will meet over the weekend in a conference call, followed by a meeting with key stakeholders: franchisees, broadcasters, and central sponsors.The meetings will chart out the "final plan" for the tournament, which will take place in the UAE from September 19.This comes after reported on concerns raised by the dealership about the arrangements being made for the 13th edition of the IPL. "In all these years of the IPL, the responsibility for accommodation, hospitality, travel, etc., during the IPL, was with the owners of the team. Nothing will change this year. The only change will be in the POEs regarding COVID "President Brijesh Patel said, also confirming the dates for the Meetings.BCCI decided to share its plans with UAE on MondayBio-secure bubble: Strict protocols being put in place. Each franchise agency will create its own bubble in which the team only interacts with the limited number of people in its ecosystem or assigned to them by the BCCI. A similar bubble will be created for employees of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, broadcasters, etc. Only through pre-designated coordinators will anyone be allowed to interact with people outside of their bubble.Revenue pools: Since the 60 IPL matches were played in 51 days, there will be no change in the distribution of the CBI's central income group.Gate money: If IPL were not to happen, franchises would not have sought any income. Letting go of gate money, the board says, is "pittance".Travel & accommodation: The franchise must specify its own travel and residence arrangements in the United Arab Emirates. Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry will coordinate with UAE authorities to guarantee "discounted hotel rates" and share them with concessions. Thereafter, the franchise would have the right to compromise on the options available to BCCI or to make its own arrangements. The franchise will take its players to the Emirates and vice versa, as is the case during the IPL in India each year.Medical assistance: Franchises will organize their own medical teams and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry will organize a central medical team. Once the players and support staff arrive in the UAE, the burden of proof will fall on the dealer, who in turn will coordinate with the BCCI medical team 24/7. The medical team of each franchise will remain with their teams in the security bubble.Player replacement & loaning: There will be no change in player policy and franchises will be free to travel with additional players to avoid last-minute travel.The Board and the Board are working in fine detail to prepare a draft of these policies to be discussed at Saturday's meeting and then shared with the concessions. "Once we share what we do with the benefits, we know there will be questions. We need to be fully prepared," says Patel.Source: Times of IndiaAlso Read:Brijesh Patel: IPL 2020 will start on September 19 in the United Arab Emirates

These are some of the major rules in Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) prepared by the Indian Cricket board which will be sent to IPL franchise soon for the T20 Championship expected in the UAE from September to November.There will be no fans in the stadium, at least initially, commentators will be six feet apart, the least crowded shelters, no more than 15 players in the locker room, post-match prize shows for social distancing rules, and four COVID tests in two weeks for all players.These are some of the major rules in Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) prepared by the Indian Cricket Board which will be sent to IPL franchise soon for the T20 Championship expected in the UAE from September to November.While awaiting government approval to transfer IPL-13 to the United Arab Emirates, the Emirates Cricket Council confirmed its interest in hosting the event after receiving a request from BCCI.Speaking to a news agency, an official at the BCCI said that not only players in the field, including their wives and friends (WAGs), and franchises, should follow the rules of "bio-bubble" would be determined."Once they enter the bio-bubble, no one can break it and join it again," the official said."The BCCI will not decide whether WAGs and family members can travel with the players, we leave it to franchises. The official said, but we have established a protocol in which not everyone, including the team's bus drivers, can leave the bio-bubble. The standard operating procedures for the franchises will be issued as soon as we meet." With the next week. If you have a complaint, you can return to the meeting and we will discuss it."SOP also states that each player will undergo four Covid tests within two weeks before the tournament starts. Two tests will be performed in India before departure and two during quarantine in the UAE.The SOP was prepared according to the rules laid down by the Cricket board of England and Wales for a series of tests against the West Indies.In the past, players representing India joined IPL teams separately, but this relaxation was not allowed this time. They will have to enter a bio-bubble with the rest of their team members.With most perks with teams of 20 or more players, along with a large number of support staff, some key SOP guidelines relate to housing. Teams will not be allowed to change hotels once they are appointed.BCCI has already asked concession holders to sort out the hotel's logistics and arrangements, although the council will help get discounts during reservations. It is known that only negative sellers enter hotels, changing rooms, and other designated areas.The BBCI will also provide standard operating procedures to broadcasters and officials.Given that the Covid curve is expected to crush the UAE by then, the official said there is a possibility that fans could watch the live event from the stands since September. But BCCI does not risk. "We don't want to take a risk. At least during the first part of the tournament, the matches will be played behind closed doors," the official said.According to Gulf News, the United Arab Emirates announced 375 new cases on Wednesday, bringing the number of state cases to 59,921, with 53,202 cases recovered.Also Read: BCCI shares detailed plan for IPL 2020 in UAE

At least 3 players in Barcelona rebelled: Arthur Melo, Arturo Vidal and Ivan Rakitic against Lionel Messi before the Champions League showdown.Things have not been easy in Barcelona recently. The Catalant giants, suffering on the field and losing the La Liga title to Real Madrid, also suffered from controversy in the dressing room throughout the season. Recent reports claim that Barcelona players rebelled against captain Lionel Messi before the Champions League match against Napoli.Three Barcelona midfielders revolt against Lionel MessiSpanish media publication Diario Gol claims that at least three Barcelona midfielders have clashed with Messi and are therefore looking for a way out of the club to trade elsewhere. There will be a minimal break between the conclusion of the UEFA Champions League and the start of the 2020-21 season. Therefore, players are cautious about participating in the competition by citing frantic UCL matches.At least three midfielders: Arthur Melo, Arturo Vidal and Ivan Rakitic were looking for an easy exit without playing in UCL matches. Arthur, who had already agreed to an exchange agreement with Juventus, was reported to have refused to return to Barcelona's training to prepare for the match against Napoli. Instead, he wants to leave for Italy earlier.Arthur, Vidal, Rakitic are not satisfied with Lionel MessiArturo Vidal is not happy with his playing time and youth manager's preference for Riqui Puig. Also, the arrival of Miralem Pjanic from Juventus next season will simply affect his place on the team. Therefore, the Chilean international is looking to find a way out as soon as the current season ends, as Inter Milan is the favorite to sign the midfielder.Finally, Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has not had the best relationship with Messi. The Croatian midfielder is not happy with his situation and believes the club and Lionel Messi are synonymous. He saw a steady decline in his playing time, losing his place in the starting squad. So Rakitic is looking for another club.Lionel Messi transfer reports appearMeanwhile, Messi has also seen a decline in his relationship with the Barcelona Council and with training staff for the past two seasons. Several reports of Messi's transfer have gained importance in recent days with Serie A giants Inter Milan looking to sign the six times Golden Ball Award winner, and these reports have been supplemented by rumors that his father is seeking a home in the Italian capital.Also Read: LaLiga Virtual Stand | LaLiga will use "virtual stand" and fans sound for broadcasting

Barcelona sack coach Quique Setien after UEFA Champions League exit

Barcelona decided to split from coach Quique Setien after ending the 2019/20 season without titles. Barcelona announced the sacking of its coach, Quique Setien, on Monday, three days after losing to Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.Setien, 61, was named in January after the two-time league winners Ernesto Valverde were sent off despite his team leading the La Liga standings on goal difference.Under his leadership, Barcelona finished the 2019/20 La Liga season in second place, five points behind champions Real Madrid. They also lost to Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals.Barcelona ended their season without a title on Friday after being knocked out of the UEFA Champions League, thanks to a disgraceful 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich."This is the first decision within a broader restructuring of the first team to be agreed upon between the current technical secretary and the new manager, which will be announced in the coming days," the club's statement said.According to The Guardian, current Netherlands coach Ronald Koeman will be appointed as the manager at the Camp Nou next week.The statement, released more than nine hours after President Josep Maria Bartomeu and the directors kicked off the board meeting, also said that the club's hierarchy had decided not to call for an impending election in the wake of the Bayern Munich defeat."The directive understands that an immediate call for elections is not possible, given that the league season will start at the end of the week on September 12, 2020, and the situation resulting from the COVID-19 crisis is economic and social," he added.Accordingly, the club will continue to implement the plan to reverse the sporting and economic situation, based on profound changes in the first team, in addition to resetting the budget to confront the new situation caused by COVID-19, before the end of the current term.As in the case of Real Madrid, Athletic Bilbao and Osasuna, Barcelona presidents are elected by the club's members.Bartomeu won the last elections, which were held in 2015, but was barred from running in the next round of elections because he had already served two consecutive terms, having been named president in 2014 after Sandro Roussel resigned.Victor Font is the favorite in the election, while former President Joan Laporta has announced his intention to run.Also Read: Time to move forward: Willian confirms departure from Chelsea after seven years

South Africa risks banning international cricket after a government body has suspended CSA

Cricket in South Africa is going through a major crisis after the Sports Federation and the Olympic Committee, a government body that oversees the nation's wide sport, suspended cricket in the country, South African cricket. This means South Africa Cricket has halted its daily operations and is raising questions about the team's future in international cricket. International Cricket Council (ICC) rules prohibit government interference, and this could mean that the national team's participation in international tournaments could be at risk.This unprecedented development comes after months of turmoil in the management of cricket in South Africa. What could this mean for South African cricket and players, as well as the future of international cricket for Proteas? Here is an explanationQ) What is SASCOC, the government entity that stopped cricket in South Africa?SASCOC (South African Athletic Association and Olympic Committee) is the National Olympic Committee (NOC) and National Paralympic Committee (NPC) in South Africa and the body responsible for South Africa in the Commonwealth Games. It is also responsible for high-performance sports in the country and coordinates the relationship with various international sports federations. Therefore, it is a sports ombudsman that was formed after a process that began with a working group set up by the Minister of Sports. Therefore, it is a super body of government.Q) Why was Cricket South Africa acquired and stopped operations?In the last year, Cricket South Africa has suffered from many problems, especially since December 2019. There were three main problems which were racism, lines of payments, and accusations of corruption. The sacking of its CEO, Thabang Morrow, was the first in a series of managerial crises that affected South African cricket. Morrow was fired for "gross misconduct". The administrative crisis was exacerbated when CEO Chris Nenzani resigned, and so did Jack Bean. Therefore, for "alleged mismanagement and misconduct", cricket in South Africa has been suspended.Q) Why could South Africa be banned?The ICC does not permit any form of government interference in the daily management of the board. This was the reason why cricket was banned in Zimbabwe for a certain period last year due to increased government interference. If this happened, South Africa could be banned for the second time in its history, with the first ban between 1970 and 1991 due to apartheid policies.Q) Will the current participation of South African players in the IPL be in question?It is not yet known if this measure will affect the participation of South African players in the IPL. From now on, they are free to compete. Only their international matches can be called into question.Read More- Barcelona sack coach Quique Setien after UEFA Champions League exit

IPL 2020 is about to start in the UAE after months of uncertainty and a lot of last-minute planning. The first match in the Indian Premier League this season will be played between the Mumbai Indians and the Chennai Super Kings. MI and CSK were the finalists in 2019, a classic that saw MI come home with only one race left.IPL has been played in South Africa and the UAE as well in previous years. Getting ready for cricket after a long break may be the biggest challenge than a change of venue.Neither team will be severely affected due to the unavailability of Australian and English players during the first week of IPL, which is a good thing too.The MI vs CSK IPL 2020 match will take place at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on September 19, 2020.TEAM PREVIEWS:Mumbai IndiansEveryone will talk about the 5 matches the Mumbai Indians played and lost in the Emirates, but we are not sure if that is important. It was 2014 and we don't think it applies. After that, India won the AFC Asian Cup in the Emirates, and Rohit Sharma was one of the best players.Predicted TOSS MI VS CSKThe team that wins the toss may want to play first just to see what the court has to offer. However, we don't think the surface will change much in 20 times.Pitch and conditionsWe can be reasonably sure that it will not rain in Abu Dhabi in mid-September. The stadium at Sheikh Zayed Stadium will be flat, on the slower side, and without much bounce. A typical subcontinental cycle doesn't mind CSK at all.We've seen scores of around 150-160 on par in the other T20 tournaments that have been played here in the past.MI VS CSK Betting TipsWe will support the defending champions to win their first match in IPL 2020. That wasn't something they had done much in the past, but this time, their team looks a lot stronger than what CSK has to offer. Table. A better hitting squad, a smaller group of players, and more strength in their setup give the Mumbai Indians the advantage.He would lead the batting again and possibly open the batting alongside Quinton de Kock, as he did last season. Rohit Sharma has had a quiet moment in IPL over the past few years and only managed 405 injuries in 2019. It's a good comeback, but not for someone like Rohit, the white ball legend in India.Increase the possibilitiesPetway has a weird thing that has grown up now with six-year-old Rohit Sharma. The market is at 2.50 instead of 1.50. We think it's a good bet. Go to Betway to place a bet.Quinton de Kock scored 529 times while SuryaKumar Yadav had scored 424 times the previous season. These are three of which MI will launch its IPL 2020.We think multiplication number four is ready to be caught. Ishan hit Kishan most of the time, but he never made it his own. MI could choose to add Chris Lynn to the trade order and maybe switch to Rohit in order in the past (unlikely) or just start with Kishan.Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, and Hardik Pandya form the strong core of this team. Bullard was in great shape and looking better than ever. It will be one of MI's wild cards this season. This leaves the four shooters. Rahul Shahar did enough to secure the start, while JaspreetBumrah is an automatic pick. Trent Boult and Mitchell McLennan could be the other bowler's MI is looking for.This is a very solid assortment with almost all bases covered. The depth at the spinning pins and hitting position # 4 are the only potential weaknesses we can see.Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings (MI vs CSK)  Predicted SquadsMumbai Indians (MI) Squads Aditya Tare, Anmolpreet Singh, Anukul Roy, Dhawal Kulkarni, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, JaspritBumrah, Jayant Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Lasith Malinga, Mitchell McClenaghan, Quinton de Kock, Rahul Chahar, Rohit Sharma, Sherfane Rutherford, Surya Kumar Yadav, Trent Boult, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Chris Lynn, Saurabh Tiwary, Digvijay Deshmukh, Prince Balwant Rai Singh, Mohsin KhanChennai Super Kings (CSK) SquadsMS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Piyush Chawla, Dwayne Bravo, Sam Curran, Karn Sharma, Shane Watson, Shardul Thakur, Ambati Rayudu, Murali Vijay, Josh Hazlewood, Francois Du Plessis, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Lungi Ngidi, Mitchell Santner, KM Asif, Narayan Jagadeesan, Monu Kumar, RutuRaj Gaikwad, R.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be in a positive mood. Army Orange has reached the qualifiers for the past four seasons, and won the championship in 2016. This year, David Warner and his company will begin their campaign against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Monday, 21 September at Dubai International Stadium. When it comes to their rivalry, there isn't much to separate them. For the competitors, led by Virat Kohli, a challenging road awaits them. With no qualifiers taking place in the last three seasons, RCB will be under some pressure. At the auction, they managed to bring in some big names, and Adam Zamba joined them too. However, all that matters is producing products in the field.Scope and conditionsThe court in Dubai was good to beat. Scoring in a power game can be decisive for both teams. Spinners are more likely to play a role, especially after the field expands. As it is a night game and the dew factor in mind, teams can advance first after winning the draw. The weather is expected to be warm, with a temperature of around 35 ° C.Playing Combinations for SRH vs RCBSunrisers HyderabadProbable XIDavid Warner (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Manish Pandey, Priyam Garg, Vijay Shankar, Abdul Samad/Abhishek Sharma, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed/Siddarth Kaul, Shahbaz Nadeem.Royal Challengers BangaloreProbable XIAaron Finch, DevduttPadikkal, Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers (wk), Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Chris Morris, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Adam Zampa, Navdeep Saini, Dale Steyn/IsuruUdana.The best possible outcomes of SRH versus RCBDavid Warner - Sun Raisers HyderabadDavid Warner was undoubtedly the most prolific foreign hitter in IPL history. Regardless of the conditions, the South has made races. After winning the Orange Cape several times, he is expected to be back at his start. Warner is also running after the COVID-19 pandemic after playing the ODI and T20I series against England.Virat Kohli - Royal Challengers BangaloreVirat Kohli is someone who does not resort to high-risk strokes and prefers to work in the middle. Playing since 2008, he's the Challengers' running top scorer and in IPL history with over 5,000 rounds to show for his efforts. He also has five centuries of his name, four of which came in 2016 when he scored nearly 1,000 points in one copy of the T20 Championship.Head to HeadOverallPlayed- 15 | RCB won- 6 | SRH won- 8 | N/R- 1At neutral venues (outside India)This will be the first time when the two teams will play against each other outside India.Average first innings score: 138 (Last four T20Is played at this venue)Record of chasing teams: Won – 1, Lost – 3, Tied – 0Broadcast DetailsMatch timings – 06:00 PM local time, 07:30 PM ISTTV – Star Sports 1, Star Sports 2, Star Sports 1 Hindi, Star Sports 1 Select, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports 2 HD, Star Sports 1 Select HD, and Star Sports 1 HD Hindi.Live Streaming – The match can be streamed online on Disney + Hotstar VIP.The prediction is for Sunrisers Hyderabad to win the match.Read More: Dream11 IPL 2020- Location, Sponsers, Schedule, Logo, Squads, Prize Money

Dream11 IPL 2020: RR vs CSK Match Prediction Who will win todays match?

  • Sep 22, 2020
  • pitchhigh
  • 827

Finally, the wait is over and I now have the Indian Premier League for 2020. The tournament we have all been looking forward to has got off to a great start. After a thrilling duel between the Indians in Mumbai and Chennai Super Kings in the first match, the Delhi Capitals and the 11th Kings of Punjab made an explosion. The start of IPL definitely made the wait worthwhile, as the tournament had only just begun.Next in the tournament is the Chennai Super Kings who will face the Rajasthan Royals. While the Super Kings have already had a picnic, it will be the first game for the royals. The Chennai Super Kings looked rusty at the start of their first match but were back to their usual best condition before the match ended. The Rajasthan Royals have a good squad coming from England and considering these players have been playing for quite some time already, the royals may not need a warm-up. CSK and RR, the two great and fiercely competitive teams meet on September 22, 2020, at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah.TEAM PREVIEWSRAJASTHAN ROYALSRajasthan Royals is perhaps one of the least glamorous teams in the tournament, and it is definitely rich in talent. While they pride themselves on their patriotic talent, this time they have some great international T20 players available. They took center stage when disagreements surrounded the Indian Premier League and thus were banned from participating in the tournament for two years, 2016 and 2017. They haven't been able to do much since then as they failed to qualify for the qualifiers on neither side. Later seasons.But this time, Rajasthan Royals has a solid squad, at least on paper, and that's mainly because of their strong top-ranking. Jos Buttler, Steve Smith, David Miller, and Robin Uthappa are some of the game's best advocates. Ben Stokes' participation in the tournament is still under the clouds, but he is sure not to be a part of the squad in the first matches of the Rajasthan Royals. Jos Butler, who has been isolated from his family according to the protocol, will also come out of his upcoming Royals game. Given the way Butler has been, his absence is definitely a major setback for the royal family.Although it is not their greatest strength, the Rajasthan Royals is full of resourceful Indian players who have proven themselves on the national circuit. Shreyas Gopal is an experienced baseball player and is as good as any player in the competition. He's also impressed the past year and with potentially favorable conditions for the spinners, Gopal will have a vital role to play. With Stokes and Buttler not playing in Game 1, the onus is on Sanju Samson and Yashasv Jaiswal to get the Royals off to a good start on the ball. While Sanju Samson is well known for his skills, Yashasvi Jaiswal broke aside thanks to his excellent U19 cricket performance. Along with Ryan Parag, Jaiswal will undoubtedly be the one to watch out for.Rajasthan Royals had a distinct weakness in Bowling Death, but with Tom Curran the way it is, there may be no need to fix Death Bowling problems. Curran was brilliant against the Australians in the recently concluded T20I series and with Archer ready to play alongside him, the Royals had two players who are good at killing. Slow launches from the UAE have to match the likes of Unadkat and Tye, providing management with a good number of options to choose from.While the royals had a solid squad on paper before the tournament began, Jus Butler's absence definitely leaves their plans a little muddled. Since the deck will likely slow down as the game progresses, the importance of quickly scoring a new ball cannot be overstated. Given that, a lot will depend on the likes of Robin Uthappa and Jashasvi Jaiswal. While they are not short of talented Indian players, the royal family is definitely lacking in Indians who have good local experience behind them. Their group is made up of mainly young Indians, and this could be a weakness that CSK might look to exploit.Rajasthan Royals is one of those teams rich with stellar players, who can all defeat them again a day. However, the absence of Stokes and Butler definitely takes the balance out of the squad. Since there aren't many experienced Indians at their disposal, they are highly dependent on their foreign players, especially Archer and Smith. The conditions in Sharjah are sure to suit them and if their foreign players can serve as a good example then the Royal Family team will be a tough team to deal with.CHENNAI SUPER KINGSWith Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh withdrawing from IPL 2020, the Chennai Super Kings appeared to be in trouble. However, as he always does, not only did MS Dhoni manage to fill the holes in the opening match, but he also managed to lead his team to another victory. It wasn't easy and there were some apparent weaknesses, but a win will definitely instill a lot of confidence in the team.The Chennai Super Kings victory in the first match was a tale of two halves. They looked tense and unprepared for the first half of the first half, but they dressed up again with great spells from Sam Curran and Piyush Chawla. Ravindra Jadeja and Lungi Ngidi brilliantly rushed out to knock out five wickets between them in the event of death changing the tone of the match. Mid-stage, CSK dropped its momentum with them, but that momentum was short-lived as they lost Shane Watson and Murali Vijay early on in the chase.Pave de Plessis seemed irritable throughout his inning, but a superb shot from Ambati Raudeau failed to press Fave de Plessis as the duo added 115 points to finish third. With an impressive appearance from Jadeja and Curran, Faf du Plessis sealed the deal when CSK won the match with four extra balls and five wickets in hand.While the Super Kings had many positives to glean from the opening match, their biggest comfort was a superb Fave win in third place, an area that Suresh Raina has owned for a long time. Given that CSK sealed the deal without injuring MS Dhoni or Kedar Jadhav, it says a lot about depth in the hitting lineup. They hit it deep with Deepak Chahar available to reach 10th place and that could be a nice advantage in critical situations.With Fave de Place in third place, the struggle for third place appears to have disappeared. With that being said, management will be wary about the top spots as Murali Vijay and Shane Watson didn't get off to a good start. These are the early days of the tournament, and while we expect MS Dhoni to stick with Watson, Murali Vijay may not have a long rope. He was never comfortable against James Pattinson and gave in to one on the inside, falling for the lead. With RetragJaquad and N Jagadisan in the team, CSK will definitely start looking for these options soon. We can even see a change in the next match with Gaikwad or Jagadeesan instead of Vijay. Sam Curran's excellent performance puts Dhoni in a nice pickle to choose between Dwayne Bravo and Sam Curran when the Caribbean player gets into shape.The Chennai Super Kings have never been such a scary team. At least it was never as terrifying as the Mumbai Indians or the Royal Challengers in Bangalore. The secret to their success so far has been the captain of MS Dhoni and the team efforts of the Chennai Super Kings always. They are very good at adapting to conditions and that will be very helpful this year. They have done well against the strong side of Indians in Mumbai and they should keep doing well in the upcoming matches as well.Predicting TOSS RR VS CSKBoth sides have preferred to play first in both games so far, and those decisions made sense at last with the pictorial spray in both games. Although the deck will likely slow down as the game progresses, splashing might make hitting a lot easier in game 2. Also, this is the first game on this deck and both sides will want to look at it before hitting. So, hopefully, the captain who wins the field will pass first.Pitch and conditionsThe average first-half results in the UAE hover around the 155-round mark and the average first-half winning score is just under 170. Although in various places, the totals in the first two matches were around the race mark of 160 and made for exciting competitions. We expect the surface in Sharjah to be a lot more friendly to strikes and shooters will have to work harder, especially in fatal situations. The weather will likely be hot and players' fitness will be tested again. Needless to say, the chances of rain are slim. As was the case in the first two matches, splashing could be a factor, causing the ball to hit the bat a little better in the second half of the second half. Given this and the usual nature of the surface, the team hitting first must look for at least 170 passes on the board.Predicting RR vs CSK DREAM11Check out the Dream11 fantasy squad for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) match of 2020 which will be played between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings. Make sure to check the latest updated equipment right after checkout.RR VS CSK PLAYING 11WICKET-KEEPER: Sanju SamsonBATSMEN:o    Faf du Plessis (C)o    Ambati Rayudu (VC)o    Shane Watsono    Steve Smitho    Yashasvi JaiswalALL-ROUNDERS:o    Sam Currano    Ravindra JadejaBOWLERS:o    Lungi Ngidio    Jofra Archero    Shreyas GopalRR VS CSK BETTING TIPSThese are the early days of the tournament and most teams will be looking to form the right groups as soon as possible. By winning their previous game, the Super Kings will be cheerful. On the other hand, the Rajasthan Royals are not out on the field yet, and with Joss Butler and Ben Stokes absent, things have not started well for them. Also, Steve Smith hasn't played in a while due to concussion protocols and getting involved under the roof either. Since foreign unity was an important part of the royals' strategies, the absence of Butler and Stokes would be a factor. Given that and the fact that the Chennai Super Kings have already played and won a match, putting your points on winning the Super Kings should be the way to go on that next showdown.Our favorite bets:Top Hitter Team - Rajasthan Royals - Stephen Smith, 4 @ 1xBetWith Gus Butler and Ben Stokes absent, the onus is on Steve Smith to lead the team with the club. He is the most experienced player on the team and likely has a good number of installments available to play with. Steve Smith is an excellent spin and paced player, and it'd just be a matter of settling for big goals. There aren't many candidates other than him in the Royals field to score big points. This is an excellent bet with a good risk ratio.Highest Editorial Association - Rajasthan Royals, 1.85 @ BetwayIt looks like the opening duo of the Chennai Super Kings are undecided in their match against Mumbai and hopefully, it will happen again. Murali Vijay looked grumpy and Shane Watson had a slow start. Moreover, the duo will have Guofra Archer Bowling, who is in for a brilliant run in the England Series against Australia. On the one hand, the Royals' opening pair is likely new and better prepared to take on CSK's core basketball players.Total score (20 plus) - Ambati Roudou - 17.5 more, 1.83 in PetwayAmbati Rayudo looked great in the opening match and was named man of the match for his winning performance. Momentum and shape generally play a big role in this form of the game and Rayudu will be looking to get the most out of his look. With a superb shot from behind, he would slide with confidence and score more than 17 points which should be a walk in the park for him.When will the next wicket fall, Chennai Super Kings, Fall Of Wicket 1 - 20.5 Under, 1.83 @ 1xBetThis bet can be considered an extension of the second bet. The primary Chennai Super Kings duo is an Achilles heel and is unlikely to qualify in the next match. Rajasthan Royals has a decent new ball attack and picking up a small gate of irregular hitters shouldn't be a big challenge, especially given that these hitters don't have good match practice.Player Performance - MS Dhoni - Overall less than 33.5, 1.83 @ 1xBetNot likely to be a game in which huge totals are scored. Moreover, with the typical Ambati Rayudu and Faf du Plessis case, MS Dhoni is unlikely to be able to handle adequate deliveries. There is also the possibility that both Curran and Jadeja will be upgraded to lead him, mainly for a left-to-right combination in the middle. We saw MS Dhoni use these tactics in their first game, too. Given all these factors, the only real chance of earning MSD Points is behind logs and we don't think that earning many points is only possible through wicket maintenance. Sure, that sounds like a decent proposition for those looking to keep it safe. Read more: Dream11 IPL 2020- Location, Sponsers, Logo, Schedule, Squads, Prize Money

Dream11 IPL 2020: KKR vs MI Match Prediction Who will win todays match?

  • Sep 23, 2020
  • pitchhigh
  • 1089

The first matches of IPL 2020 were exciting! We've already seen Super-Over, the value of the experience and many players have improved tremendously. There have also been some disappointments, but it is too early to dismiss someone.This next match will be held between Kolkata Knight Knights and Mumbai Indians. KKR is the last team to start and will be playing their first IPL match. For their part, the Mumbai Indians were defeated by the Chennai Super Kings in their first match.Both teams are very strong and they have really great talent. Can KKR exit the blocks in an instant or will the Mumbai Indians learn from their mistakes in the first match?The KKR vs MI IPL 2020 match will take place at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on September 23, 2020.TEAM PREVIEWSKOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERSKolkata Knight Knights will watch every match so far and learn. We've seen that the stadiums so far have had an amazing pace and bounce off it. The lawnmowers left lawn on the roof to prevent breakage and allow the ball to hit.This is something KKR will enjoy.His strength struck him. We look forward to seeing Shubman Gill open throughout the 2020 IPL season. He is a great talent, but he really hasn't had such a wonderful year that he will see him push for a place in the Indian team. He would have Sunil Narain at the top if he was fit. Narain has missed CPL's last few matches and has probably only rested as a precaution.KKR has the option to choose Tom Banton instead of Narine or maybe switch to Rahul Tripathi in order to add another foreign player. Personally, we'd love to see Pantone out there, but KKR's bowling beats aren't the strongest.Nitesh Rana, Ewen Morgan, Dinesh Karthik, and Andre Russell make up a very powerful medium system. Morgan was in great shape with a six-hitter, while Russell also had a productive CPL.We're not sure if Russell will really throw a lot this season, but it could be very dangerous if the roofs continue to offer some bounce.KKR's bowling attack is slightly weaker. Pat Cummins was very expensive in England, Kuldeep Yadav had his worst year in IPL 2019 and had to be eliminated, while the Indian speed squad lacked experiencePrasidh Krishna and maybe Shivam Mavi could start. This is where adding someone like Lockie Ferguson could be helpful if Narine isn't available.MUMBAI INDIANSThe Mumbai Indians continued their tradition of starting slowly and losing a match to CSK they should have really won. Now they will also face a tough test against KKR.Mumbai looked rusty in their previous game. Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Cook looked good before shedding it. The same can be said of Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya as well.We are also not sure if Saurap Tiwari would be the better option in fourth place. He scored 42 of 31 deliveries, but he's not the best in the spin and looks a bit suspicious against bowling at close range.For some strange reason, Kieron Pollard is still underrated by the Mumbai Indians. They don't send him to command and let him hit as much as he can. His performance always drops in sixth place due to a lack of available deliveries or hitting partners.The strength of the average order in Mumbai Indians is as good as the KKR, if not better.Jaspreet Bomrah was strangely elusive in the previous match. He didn't seem confident enough for his workers to try and ended up conceding many kicks. Trent Bolt was Mumbai's best shooting player in the previous match. Your ability to collect early terrain will again be crucial.Mumbai picked James Pattinson for their first match, but we can easily see him replaced by Mitchell McLennan or Nathan Coulter-Nile.The strengths of the Mumbai Indians team will not change or disappear overnight. However, her slow start and current form of the main players are cause for some concern.KKR VS MI TOSS PREDICTIONThe launch will be very important. We saw that the field became better to hit in the second half and the spray made things more difficult for bowlers. Hitting second would be a huge advantage.PITCH AND CONDITIONSWe've all come to the IPL 2020 thinking it's going to be low-score competitions in dust pots that are perfect for deer. Well, the curators did their job very well and managed to give us beautiful hitting fields on the bouncy surfaces and the lawn.The squares contain enough pitches that this trend can continue during the first weeks of IPL before the skins start to slow.The Mumbai Indians played their first match on this intact ground. The ball hit the racket well and hardly any turn was offered. There was also a lot of dew favoring the second hitting side.KKR VS MI DREAM11 PREDICTIONDream11 team and Dream11 tips for KKR vs MI IPL 2020KKR VS MI PLAYING 11         WICKETKEEPER:o Q Kock         BATSMEN:o S Yadavo S Gillo R Sharmao E Morgan (vc)         ALL-ROUNDERS:o K Pollardo    A Russell (c)         BOWLERS:o T Boulto R Chaharo P Krishnao P CumminsKKR VS MI BETTING TIPSThe importance of the gift in this competition cannot be overstated. The splash factor will flip things hard in favor of side chase, so keep that in mind while placing your bets.But overall, we think KKR has an excellent chance of making a little surprise in this competition. He has the batting to be able to match the striking power of Mumbai Indians. A KKR bowling attack can also benefit from the additional recoil offered.Bet KKR to win.Our favorite betsHexagon winner - Mumbai Indians ($ 2.10) (10 creeks)We don't think any team in IPL 2020 will have the six-strike power that Mumbai has, although KKR comes close. Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Kirun Pollard, and Suryakumar Yadav are excellent. I hope Andre Russell never owns one of his popular games.Total Eoin Morgan Points: Over 20.5 ($ 1.83) (Petway)Morgan is in the shape of his life and his support has been very profitable for us this season. You will be in the top 4 or 5 for sure and have a lot of problems to deal with. His ability to six whales and the way he attacks the flirt make him the best candidate to win that bet.Total people over 11.5 ($ 1.83) (1xBet)There is enough power six hits for this team to make this our best bet. The stadium was good in the opening match and expected to be the same. We don't think it's a problem that a total of six in the match is 12 or more. Read More:  Dream11 IPL 2020- Location, Sponsers, Logo, Schedule, Squads, Prize Money

The sixth match of the Indian Premier League 2020 will take place between Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.Kings XI Punjab kicked off its 2020 IPL campaign on a strange note. They started the match with a fire attack from Mohamed Al-Shami, which ended with numbers 4-0-15-3. Sheldon Cottrell also gave a good role, picking up two wickets from his four sums and conceding 24 times. But they let the match slip by in the second half of the bowling rounds. Then the team quickly lost their home and were reeling at 55/5 when Mayank Agarwal played a superb kick in the rear.However, when they hit the win, Agarwal threw his share and the team failed to make a run in their last three handovers. The match went to super and Punjab lost the match. KXIP will return in full force after their failed confrontation against Delhi.On the other hand, the Royal Challengers Bangalore team finished on the right side of the streak against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Devdutt Padikkal and AB de Villiers set an explosive half-century record for the team, while Navdeep Saini and Yuzvendra Chahal improved their play when their team needed them.However, there are many problems in the Bangalore lineup, such as the weak bowling links Shivam Dube and Umesh Yadav, which Punjab will try to exploit.Read More:Top 10 Fantasy Cricket Websites in IndiaMatch Analytics and OddsThe form of RCB would suggest your cricket betting on this match should be with RCB to win.Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) - Aaron Finch, Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers, Josh Philippe (wk), Washington Sundar, Shivam Dube, Navdeep Saini, Umesh Yadav, Dale Steyn, Yuzvendra ChahalKings XI Punjab (KXIP) - Lokesh Rahul(c & wk), Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, Sarfaraz Khan, Glenn Maxwell, Nicholas Pooran, Krishnappa Gowtham, Chris Jordan, Sheldon Cottrell, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed ShamiCricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions* - PrePlayWho will win the toss? - Kings XI PunjabWho will win? – Kings XI PunjabTop Batsman (Runs Scored) – Devdutt Padikkal (Royal Challengers Bangalore), KL Rahul (Kings XI Punjab)Top Bowler (Wickets were taken) – Yuzvendra Chahal (Royal Challengers Bangalore), Mohammed Shami (Kings XI Punjab)Most Sixes – AB de Villiers (Royal Challengers Bangalore), KL Rahul (Kings XI Punjab)Man of the Match –  KL Rahul Team Scores Batting First – Royal Challengers Bangalore 165+, Kings XI  Punjab 180+Match Handicap Kings XI PunjabIndian Premier League 2020 Live Cricket Streaming - bet365 live cricket streaming page allows you to watch cricket live.

CSK VS DC IPL 2020The Chennai Super Kings will face the Delhi Capitals in the seventh match of the Indian Premier League 2020. The match will be held at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium and is scheduled to start at 6:00 pm local time. Both CSK and DC have a lot of firepower in their teams, but somehow they didn't live up to their expectations. As for CSK, apart from Faf Du Plessis and AmbatiRayudu, they haven't managed to make an imprint in the tournament yet. The same goes for the capitals of Delhi, which despite winning their match against the 11th Kings, Punjab, were not at their best. There were some good shots from Shreyas Iyer and Marcus Stoinis, but neither happened for a big shot. However, Mohamed Al Shami's performance on the ball will bring a break for the Delhi Capitals. The game is expected to end on a tightrope with CSK gaining a slight advantage due to his experience in the batting order.CSK 14 -6 won the record over Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League and will look to continue his streak. However, the capitals of Delhi cannot be ruled out because they also have a great squad that, in their day, can blow their opponents away.CSK vs DC IPL 2020 Live streamingTV Channels: Fox Sports, Kayo Sports, Sky Sports, SuperSports, BeIN Sports, Start Sports 1, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports Select, Star Sports Select HD.Live Broadcasting: Hotstar. Fans from Australia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, continental Europe (excluding the UK and Ireland), South and Central America, Central Asia, and Southeast Asia (excluding Singapore) can watch the live broadcast on YuppTv.Predict launchThe field can go either way, but the team that wins the field must look to run on the board. The second-ranked teams struggled to be chased in the field.Weather reportThe weather in Dubai is expected to sweat players, with temperatures reaching 40 degrees Celsius.Toss PredictionThe match will be held at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. Dubai Stadium provided some assistance to pacemakers with the new ball and is expected to play the same. Hitting wasn’t that easy on the ground with teams that settled on around 150 in previous matches. Any result above the 160 marks in this area should be difficult for the opponent.Read More: Top 10 Fantasy Cricket Websites in IndiaChennai Super Kings Team News & Playing 11Chennai Super Kings Team NewsAmbati Rayudo missed the match against the Rajasthan Royals, but he is expected to return to the team for the next match. It would be a big boost for the Chennai team who sweat the hitter look. Aside from him, Faf du Plessis' figure is also a positive sign for Chennai Super Kings. However, players cannot win your matches and CSK needs players like Shane Watson, Kedar Jadhav and MS Dhoni to do well in the upcoming matches.For Chennai, their players were the strongest midfielders, but RR hitter brought them to the cleaners in the previous match. MS Dhoni can bring Imran Tahir in place of Lungi Ngidi and Shardul Thakur can replace Piyush Chawla.Chennai Super Kings Key PlayersFaf du Plessis: Faf had a great touch in both of their matches. Once again, you will have the Chennai key in the middle order. He is a skilled player at turning the shot and can hit hard when necessary. With Ashwin and Axar Patel on the DC squad, he's a key figure in CSK's hit squad.Shane Watson: Shane Watson is one of those players who won't beat you in matches on a regular basis, but in his day, he can only defeat an opponent. Watson looked good at the previous game, as we assume a big shot is pretty close.Deepak Chahar – Deepak Chahar has been great in Chennai for the past few seasons. MS Dhoni trusts the shooter and almost every time he delivers his captain. It will be important for the new ball.Chennai Super Kings Team FormChennai started their tournament with a win against Mumbai Indians but was outplayed by Rajasthan Royals in their last game.Chennai Super Kings Predicted Playing 11Murali Vijay, Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Faf du Plessis, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Shardul ThakurDelhi Capitals Team News & Playing 11Delhi Capitals Team NewsDelhi Capitals started their tournament with a spooky victory over Kings XI Punjab in their debut match of the 2020 IPL Championship, they were good at the match but definitely not at their best. Players like Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer started out but couldn't make it big. Shikhar Dhawan Road and Prithvi Shaw will also give headaches to Delhi capitals. Marcus Stones did well, but his fortitude is always in question. One positive thing for DC is their bowling that looks pretty settled with Rabada and AnrichNortje bowling splendidly. Axar Patel too had a fabulous game against Punjab. The only change that could be expected from them is Mohit Sharma being replaced by either Ishant Sharma or Avesh KhanDelhi Capitals Key PlayersPrithvi Shaw: Prithvi Shaw couldn't deliver the score in their final game, but we all know how devastating the opening matches can be. With this kind of attack on Chennai, Pretty Show will definitely envision himself achieving a great result.Shekhar Dhawan: Dhawan will also be excited to be participating in the tournament. He didn't have enough time to curl in his last game, but he is hoping for a big hit against the Chennai Super Kings.• Kagiso Rabada: Rabada could become a trump card for DC with its extra speed. The Chennai beginners have been fighting at a real pace and Rapada definitely poses a huge threat to them with the new. With the old ball too, he has the skills to stop the flow of running in death situations.Delhi Capitals Team FormDelhi’s first game ended in a tie but the Capitals held their nerves to emerge victorious in the Super OverDelhi Capitals Predicted Playing 11Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shimron Hetmyer, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Ravi Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Ishant SharmaChennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals PredictionBoth teams have a strong team but Chennai just have a slight advantage over Delhi due to their vast experience teamCSK vs DC Dream11 PredictionWicket-keeper: MS Dhoni is not at his best, which makes picking goalkeepers easy. Rishabh Pant with a score of 9.5 is the most viable option for his team.Batsmen: You need players who can play big hits on your team. Shreyas Iyer has been at its best lately at 9.5 and it's one of my top picks. Shekhar Duan is 10 years old another hitter you don't want to miss. From Chennai, the choice is very simple. It should be one of the Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, or both.You can also pick Shane Watson with 9.5 points as on his day; It will give you a lot of cool points.All-rounders: You have a lot to choose from in the off-road division with players like Sam Curran (8.5 credits), Marcus Stones in (8.5), Ravindra Jadeja in (9), and Axar Patel (8.5) in competition. You can also go to the Dwayne Bravo, but it's a risky option because you don't know if it's fit to play and bowling.Bowlers: In the bowling section, you can choose KagisoRabada in 9.0 with Deepak Chahar in 8.5. Imran Taher is also likely to play and can reach his team with 9.5 pointsCaptain/Vice-captain: As for the leader, Faf du Plessis could be a good choice with Shreyas Iyer. For Vice Captain, you can go to Shikhar Dhawan or Shane Watson because they are two great players. Read More :  Dream11 IPL 2020- Location, Sponsers, Logo, Schedule, Squads, Prize Money

The Kolkata Knight Riders played their first match against the Indians in Mumbai, and they showed signs of rust because they couldn't even get close to the Mumbai Indians' total of 195 and only managed to take 146 rounds, losing the match 49 times.KKR's Mavi impresses:Shivam Mavi’s speed and control was a discovery for the Kolkata Knight Riders against MI as he only conceded 32 exaggerated 4 runs and collected two wickets, which is great considering the high-scoring match.Sunil Narain was a bank for KKR as always. Andre Russell is also impressed with his collection. Sandeep Warrior finished 3-0-34-0 but showed some good signs of improvement and is a work in progress for Kolkata. Unfortunately for them, Culdeb Yadav and Pat Cummins did a lot.Kolkata batting rusty against MIPursuing a giant goal, his initial group Shubman Gill and Sunil Narine were unsuccessful. Narine will have two more chances to unlock, after which there can be a change at the top of the order if the off-road vehicle is down.It was a surprise move by KKR to bring Dinesh Karthik to # 3. He's impressed with his 23-ball spell in the penalty area, but Karthik is perhaps better suited to the role of a spiker. Ewen Morgan and Andre Russell looked a long way from Kolkata and with their eliminations, Kolkata's hopes of winning their first game of the season also evaporated.However, Kolkata will be back stronger in this game with a match under his belt now and after he has tested his combinations between them.  Read More: Top 10 Fantasy Cricket Websites in India Injury concerns for HyderabadWhile the Kolkata Knight Riders were rusty in their first meeting, Sunrisers Hyderabad's loss in their first game of the season was a mixture of poor execution and shame.For starters, Mitchell Marsh, SRH's multi-skilled player chosen over Mohamed Nabi, was only able to throw four balls before he had to leave. Marsh was excluded from the season with Jason Holder chosen as his replacement.SRH will likely go with Muhammad Nabi for this game. If Ken Williamson has recovered from his quadriceps muscle injury, it can be added to boost the average sexual and reproductive health ranking.David Warner wasn't lucky enough to be knocked out in the last game. Both Johnny Bayerstow and Manish Bandy were killed by reckless shots after the set.SRH depend on bowling to bail them out:SRH, however, was impressed, as Bhuvneshwar Kumar stood out. Although he did not collect any share, Bofneshwar only admitted 25 times out of the four sums. Off-road young man Abhishek Sharma went so far as to throw a couple of overs as he picked up a wicket and conceded 16 rounds.With Afghan bowling duo Muhammad Nabi and Rashid Khan preparing to return together, Hyderabad is hoping for its first win at the table.Matching and probability analysis:The SRH model may indicate that your cricket bets in this match must be with SRH to win.Here's the probable playing XI of both teams:Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) - David Warner (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Manish Pandey, Priyam Garg, Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma, Mitchell Marsh, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, T NatarajanKolkata Knight Riders (KKR) - Sunil Narine, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik(c & wk), Nikhil Naik, Pat Cummins, Kuldeep Yadav, Sandeep Warrier, Shivam Mavi Read More: Dream11 IPL 2020- Location, Sponsers, Logo, Squads, Prize Money- PitchHigh

In beating, DC's top ranking from Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw would look to lay the groundwork for a grand total. While Shaw looks great with willow, Dhawan offers something special. Rishabh Pant and Ayer were also in great shape. While the duo rescued DC after a high-profile breakdown against KXIP, they also made valuable contributions against the CSK. Additionally, Australian off-road driver Marcus Stoinis has proven his worth with both a bat and a ball and is expected to make late-night fireworks with Shimron Hetmeyer. In the bowling division, South African duo Kagiso Rapada and Enrich Norte are in great shape so far. The DC Team Management only hopes Nortje is a little cheap like his countryman.

This time, however, the Sunrisers look a little more balanced than the Yellow Army.In the last game against Delhi Capitals (SRH), SRH scored his first points in the tournament, with a 15-point win. Ken Williamson's return from injury also boosted his hitting squad and the New Zealand captain won the gold medal early on.Scope and conditionsThe pitch in Dubai has improved for hitting over a period of time. The striking teams first gained a huge advantage on the surface. Spinners are more likely to play.The hitter will have to rely on singles and doubles, because crossing long limits may not be that easy.

With an explosive batting formation that completes Bowling's emotional death, the Mumbai Indians will have their nose in an IPL match against Rajasthan Royals. Rajasthan Royals may need to tweak the Indian squad a bit as they try to pull their IPL campaign out of the current rot against the super-confident Mumbai Indians on Tuesday. Starting with a blow in Sharjah, the royals suddenly collapsed onto larger land in Dubai and Abu Dhabi as the willow bearers did not show half the threat as they did during the first two matches.“The last two matches did not go as planned after a very good start to the tournament. But I think this is how T20 cricket works.” Steve Smith, captain of the royal team, said on the eve of the match. “I hope tomorrow I can score a few games. I missed the last two games, but it's happening. "On the other hand, the Mumbai Indians have been solid in the last two games and are currently at the top of the table thanks to a better execution rate compared to Delhi Capitals, who also stand at six points. After a shocking loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore in "Super Over", the defending champions once again bounced back in style, defeating Kings XI Punjab and Sunners Hyderabad by 48 and 34 rounds respectively.Read More: Top 10 Fantasy Cricket Websites in IndiaMI vs RR WEATHER FORECASTMI vs RR Dream11 IPL 2020 Match 20_Predicted XIs, Weather Forecast_Google ScreenshotMI vs RR 2020, IPL Live Streaming DetailsTV Broadcast: Star Sports Network.Online Live Streaming: Disney+ Hotstar VIPMI vs RR Pitch ReportThe stadium at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, is fairly balanced and offers a lot of support for both hitters and bowling.

The mystery remains over whether to hit first or hunt in Abu Dhabi. The Mumbai Indians, despite playing three matches here, are not chased yet.

DC vs RR Match Prediction – Who will win today’s match? Dream11 IPL 2020, Match 30In their previous meeting, the Royals lost to the Capitals by 46 runs.Delhi Capitals (DC) have had decent outings thus far in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Having won five out of their first seven games, Shreyas Iyer and Co aren’t far away from qualifying for the playoffs, barring a miraculous slump.However, in their last match, the Capitals lost to the Mumbai Indians (MI) by five wickets at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. The Capitals are next scheduled to lock horns with the Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Wednesday, October 14 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.Moreover, DC is unbeaten in this IPL in Dubai, having won three games. The Royals, on the other hand, are placed sixth in the points table, despite beating David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). They can’t afford to be complacent either.Pitch and ConditionsThe pitch in Dubai has been a decent one for batting. Batters have found their way, but even the bowlers haven’t done bad. Chasing teams have mostly found it tough to find their feet as the track has shown a tendency of slowing down.The conditions will be hot with the temperature around the 33-degrees Celsius mark.

In 141 games, he has 3,835 runs with 27 fifties and two centuries.Moreover, having already played for the Royals and captaining them, he can be one of the top-performers for DC with all his experience. He must be aware of RR’s bowling attack in the event.Steve Smith– Rajasthan RoyalsSteve Smith started the ongoing IPL with a couple of thumping knocks. But ever since, the right-hander has gone into a bit of a slump. The opener has strained to cross even the single-digit score and would be looking to get back amongst the runs.However, against the Capitals, Smith has decent numbers.

RR vs SRH Dream11 IPL 2020 Prediction, Playing 11In another high-effort Indian Premier League match on Great Thursday, Rajasthan Royals Sunrisers Hyderabad will face Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Match No. 40. The royals led by Steve Smith are sixth in the standings with eight points and still have little chance to advance to the next round. On the other hand, SRH is one point six points below it and thus has four points to memorize. RR failed to shoot Chennai Super Kings (CSK). His tactic of demoting Jos Butler to fifth, however, managed to finish the match unbeaten at 70 and lead the team to victory. Ben Stokes, Sanjo Samson and Robin Uthapa should provide a good start, while the responsibility for turning them falls to Butler and Smith. Samson has been in decline since the first two games of the season and will be looking to improve his performance.RR captain Guofra Archer (39 wickets from 31 matches) will once again lead the reins and seek support from Stokes, who has yet to make a difference. The other players, Tiwatia, Shrias Gopal, Ankit Rajput and Kartik Tiyagi were too cheap for the ball against CSK. On the other hand, SRH is on the verge of losing a tipping point, and winning alone is what keeps them optimistic. The 2016 champions are based largely on the top four: Johnny Burstow, Warner, Manish Bundy and Ken Williamson. They still couldn't find a finisher in their middle order. It was this factor, along with Williamson's injury, that drove Warner down the standings in his previous match against the Kolkata Knight Riders.

SRH VS DC Dream11 IPL 2020 PredictionDelhi Capitals will look completing the unfinished business and close their place In the supplement when they face Sunrisers Hyderabad in a crucial match in the Indian Premier League today. Two consecutive losses against Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab would hurt, but DC needs to take the band aid off and score two points to take their tally to 16, which will lift them to the top of the table. On the other hand, the Sunrisers hopes of conducting the qualifiers are pinned by a thread. David Warner and his men are second to last, with eight points from 11 startups. To reach the qualifiers, they must win the remaining three matches and hope that all other results go well. Capitals have an explosive striking division as well as an enormous bowling unit. They did not count on anyone, as different players raised their hands at different times to deliver goods to the team. The South African rhythm duo by Kagiso Rabada (23 wicket) and Anrich Nortje(14) was exceptional. Tushar Deshpande and Ravichandran Ashwin have performed irregularly in recent matches, while Axar Patel has done a good job putting down rival teams.Sunrisers is heading towards clash after a frustrating defeat. Chasing a modest 127 against KXIP, the complexion of the game changed after dismissal of Warner and Jonny Bairstow in quick succession. The former Champions have lost five wickets in their last two matches to suffer a humiliating defeat. The team relies heavily on its combat unit, primarily on Bairstow, Warner and Manish Pandey. Vijay Shankar did well in the victory over the Rajasthan Royals, but was unable to repeat his performance against KXIP. The bowling unit beefed up with the inclusion of Jason Holder was impressive in the previous match and the Warner captain desperately hopes they make a similar bid against Delhi. Army Orange will also rely on the fact that they beat Delhi earlier in the tournament.SRH VS DC Fantasy Tips Jonny Bairstow, Rishabh Pant, Ajinkya Rahane, David Warner (VC), Shreyas Iyer, Priyam Garg, Kagiso Rabada, Jason Holder, T Natarajan, Rashid Khan and Ravi Ashwin (C). SRH vs DC Probable Playing XIsSunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (C), Jonny Bairstow (WK), Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad/Abhishek Sharma, Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Khaleel Ahmed/Basil Thampi, T Natarajan and Sandeep Sharma.Delhi Capitals: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw/Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer (C), Rishabh Pant (WK), Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Ravi Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Tushar Deshpande/Harshal Patel and Anrich Nortje.SRH vs DC SQUADSSunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (C), Abhishek Sharma, Basil Thampi, Yarra Prithviraj, Billy Stanlake, Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Shahbaz Nadeem, Shreevats Goswami, Siddarth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan, Vijay Shankar, Wriddhiman Saha, Abdul Samad, Fabian Allen, Jason Holder, Priyam Garg, Sandeep Bavanaka, Sanjay Yadav, Virat Singh.Delhi Capitals: Shreyas Iyer (C), Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, Anrich Nortje, Ishant Sharma, Pravin Dubey, Avesh Khan, Sandeep Lamichhane, Kagiso Rabada, Keemo Paul, Mohit Sharma, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Ravi Ashwin, Marcus Stoinis, Daniel Sams, Rishabh Pant, Alex Carey, Shimron Hetmyer and Tushar Deshpande.Also read: Virat Kohli's Superb Tattoos

Shikhar Dhawan's fierce half-century and the full spectacle of Marcus Stoinis led the Delhi Capitals to the first Indian Premier League final, surviving some moments of anxiety before winning 17 times in the second qualifiers in Abu Dhabi on Sunday. . Impressive counterpunches from Ken Williamson (67) and Abdul Samad (33) threatened to destroy the hopes of the Delhi Capitals, but the timely firing of Stoinis for the Kiwi hitter put him in his favor. The Capitals will now challenge the Indians in Mumbai for the title on Tuesday, having lost to them in their first qualifiers.Shikhar Dhawan in his form broke 78 out of 49 balls to help the Capitals score 189 challenges out of three after choosing to hit. Promoted to open roles, Stoinis added 86 rides with Dhawan and then took three wickets for 26 rounds in the SRH race chase. Each step succeeded in the capitals on Sunday as Shimron Hitmire, who was appointed, also helped the team win a 42-time race unbeaten. Rapada eliminated dangerous player David Warner - 2 - with his first balls to give the capital the start he wanted.Manish Pandey - 21 - and Priyam Garg - 17 - hit the ball beautifully and confidently in their small 31-round position, but Stoinis shot them in the space of three balls. All three windows were within five behind the SRH. The Delhi spinning duo of Aksar Patel and Praveen Dube also played well while maintaining control of the actions.Williamson and Jason Holder kept one or two strokes and odd strokes. The Kiwi hitter began hitting with remarkable ease and his tough game against spinners kept SRH in the chase. However, Holder came out while attempting a superb shot against Patel.Williamson wrapped up his 50s with Patel's song. He got good support from Abdul Samad, who crushed Norte by two quarters and six.SRH needed 61 of the last five more times and asked Williamson to do the job. Stoinis turned him back, knocking him off a wide ball that hit Rapada directly in order to take cover. Rapada - 29/4 - Then run down the SRH standings to settle the capitals match.Previously, Captain Shreyas Iyer, 21, wasn't doing much. Dhawan, in his fast-paced innings, hit sixty-four. He added 52 runs to the third wicket with Hetmyer before his nearest Sandeep Sharma fired it - 1/30.SRH's dirty way also helped in the capitals, as they dropped Stoinis early in turns and gave them some free kicks. SRH also wiped out Dhawan in the end, though it didn't cost them much.Once again, the Afghani Rashid Khan Roundabout (26/1) was the most effective marksman, although T. Natarajan played well in the big hurdles.Stoinis, after being defeated by Jason Holder against Sandeep in midfield, punished the SRH players with a series of restraints.Stoinis, with three at the time, was well organized by Sandeep, but he didn't take the opportunity. Holder, who was later reprimanded by Stoinis, who had 18 West Indies field three, four, and six.Sandeep was initially flawless with his long balls, but then he veered off and was punished by Dhawan.Spinner Shabaz Nadeem came out to launch the latest version of Powerplay and ended up losing 14 times as DC hit 65 without losing.Warner moved the bowlers around the ball and handed the ball to Rashid and Natrajan.

The seventh edition of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL 2020-21) is set to begin in less than two weeks. ISL is the biggest arena in Indian football, where the best and brightest of Indian football collide over the course of five exciting months to earn the right to be called the title of India's champions.After six years of history behind it, the league has attracted big names in football from around the world. From former English Premier League winners to Champions League winners, many have claimed the Indian subcontinent.With that said, let's take a look at the top 5 stars in the Premier League who will do their trade in the next edition of ISL.1 - Anthony Pilkington (SC East Bengal)Right now, expectations are high for Anthony Pilkington, who will play SC East Bengal this season. The 32-year-old Republic of Ireland international footballer was part of the impressive Norwich City squad that played in the Premier League from 2011 to 2014 before relegating to the tournament.Pilkington's record was particularly good, as he was a staple of the team that survived relegation in the first two seasons. He made 75 appearances for the Canary Islands and scored 14 goals before moving to Cardiff City and Wigan Athletic.2. Gary Hooper (Kerala Blasters FC)At one point in his career, Gary Hopper was among the England team names led by Roy Hodgson. Hopper's quality was so high that he was also a target for several Premier League clubs during his time at Celtic, as he managed to win successive titles.Hopper moved from Celtic to Norwich City before the 2013-14 season and was a regular in the club's starting line-up for most of the season. However, he only scored quite a few goals when he relegated the Canary Islands to the Championship. Hopper will help Norwich return to the league before moving back to the championship with Sheffield Wednesday.3 - Stephen Taylor (Odisha)Stephen Taylor, 34, was one of the first foreign players to sign a club in the International League this season. The former Newcastle United center-back played more than a decade in the Premier League and played more than 200 games before moving to Portland Timbers in the United States.Taylor has signed with Wellington Phoenix in the A-League and signed with Odisha FC at a time when the club desperately needs a center back with a good driving experience. On paper, Taylor sure fits the bill, but it remains to be seen if he can be any good for Stuart Baxter's side.4. Adam Low Funder (Mumbai City FC)The 33-year-old joined Reading before the 2011-12 season and was a huge hit with the club. His 12 goals in 32 matches helped the club secure its rise to the Premier League for the 2012-13 season.Although the royals relegated at the end of the season, Le Founder had a good outing, scoring 12 league goals and taking home the Premier League's Player of the Year award in January.Given that Mumbai City coach Sergio Lopera prefers an offensive style of play, the 33-year-old will undoubtedly play a pivotal role in the upcoming ISL season.5. Daniel Fox (SC East Bengal)For a six-foot defender, Daniel Fox is as solid as he looks. The 34-year-old has played twice in the Premier League with two different teams. Fox's first taste in the Premier League came in the 2009-2010 season with Burnley. However, after only 14 games for the club, Burnley was relegated.Fox then managed to help his new club, Southampton, secure the promotion ahead of the 2012-2013 campaign. He kept his place in the starting line-up alongside players such as Jose Fonte, Ricky Lambert, and Morgan Schneiderlin.

Three Major Changes in Big Bash League

The Annual Big Bash League has introduced three new terms of play that will be applicable starting with the upcoming 10th season beginning next month. Power Surge, X-Factor Player, and Bash Boost are the three new bases that Cricket Australia hopes to "exploit" the current situation of T20 cricket.Here are the three rules:Bash Boost: This is basically a bonus point that will be awarded to the team that is ahead of the race in the middle stage. For example, if team A scores 1/70 of a point 10 times past it and Team B scores 67/2 in the same stage, then the former will get a bonus point.X-Factor Player: In the first half, after the 10th player is thrown, the team may present a previous target player as the twelfth or thirteenth before kick-off. However, this X-Factor player can only replace someone who has yet to hit or has not offered more than one player.Power Surge: This will be a period of two where only players are allowed outside the inner field circuit. The hitting team may request her at any time after their last eleventh in turns. However, Powerplay's six overrun period has now been reduced to four.Aside from these major changes, winning teams will now receive three points instead of two, as was the practice in previous releases of BBL.CA advisor Trent Woodhill said such changes would improve the game.According to cricket.com.au, Woodhill said, "We need to innovate because people love change, but I think these (changes) will really improve the game itself." "I'm coming from a high-performance perspective, not just a gimmick, so I like these changes to pass the high-performance test on strategy and elite performance."Woodhill also feels this will make captains and coaches more accountable and accountable for their decisions."He'll pressure the leaders and coaches. Having played more than 300 T20 matches in the men's and women's games, the T20s have a pattern, and that will spoil that pattern away. It'll make the players think a little, and ... force you on match day to have a story where Fans and broadcasters alike will have to delve into the research and ask questions about decisions that have been or are not being made, "he said.Also Read: IPL 2020 Final Result: Mumbai Indians become the fifth time trophy winner

After Update 14.60, Fortnite players around the world have been testing the latest in Venom's legendary abilities. From its appearance, it has not only an innovative concept but a wide range with explosive power.In a recent video, creator and Twitch streamer SypherPK talked about the latest update and future of Fortnite.Venom's legendary ability "Smash & Grab" allows players to unleash a symbiotic arm that penetrates the environment, captures enemies, and lures them towards the player. It seemed like an arm could pass through buildings and SypherPK was stunned by its long arrival.To take advantage of the legendary ability, just visit the Quinjet Patrol Echo 2 and destroy some supply drones that eventually lose their capacity.A few weeks ago, Epic Games had secretly removed Groot's Bramble Shield and replaced it with a Thor Hammer. Interestingly, the latest update complies with this decision, as Groot's legendary ability is back in the game.SypherPK confirms its theory in Fortnite Season 5After Awesome Season 4, fan expectations for the upcoming Fortnite season have already skyrocketed. Additionally, Donald Mustard previously confirmed that the upcoming Galactus event will be "the biggest event in the game's history".However, SypherPK is adamant in its theory about Fortnite Season 5. The Streamer thinks the Marvel-Fortnite collaboration is far from over and both franchises have a lot to offer.In hindsight, SypherPK's claims make every sense. Fortnite has been harassing Galactus' arrival for a long time, and one event is unlikely to be enough to justify the entire buildup. According to the channel, Galactus will likely remain undefeated in the event, and Fortnite Season 5 will continue the Marvel storyline.Due to the efforts of SypherPK, fans have also witnessed the return of veterans like TimTheTatman and Nickmercs. Not only did former Fortnite creators enjoy their comeback, but they also promised to play Fortnite a lot.Without a doubt, the Marvel-themed fourth season did wonder for Epic Games. The game finally looks new, and the impressive Season 5 roadmap adds to it in a big way.Also Read: PUBG Unban in India | Latest News

The Reason behind banning Refueling In F1

F1 has banned refueling of tanks since 2010. Then, to reduce the cost as well as increase safety, the FIA decided to ban it. Therefore, F1 On racing cars will follow the latest regulations that will improve racing with a full fuel tank.According to Haas F1 Team driver Romain Grosjean, a restoration of the refueling system can be very beneficial for an F1. You will have the opportunity to solve and troubleshoot GPDA.He said, "Yes, we want it." "Not because we think it's great for racing, but because we need to reduce the weight of the car to help Pirelli." It is a temporary solution to make the car 70kg lighter or 60kg lighter. It is one of the reasons why we can feel excessive car fever like crazy. "Additionally, he highlighted the benefits of reintroducing the base. He said, "Yes. The tire will help, which is a big weakness."Also, there are many other theories for different drivers. Most of them saw the era of refueling and subsidizing automobile refueling.According to runners' opinions, running with a light car is safer and more convenient. Thus, it makes racing more comfortable, while also reducing the risk factor, in one aspect of the tire dramas.What stopped the F1 refueling decision?Many suggested a meeting on the F1 strategy group. Also, in 2017, in order to ensure the display is optimized and rendered. After that, not all of the ideas reached the desired destination.In the debate over ethnic refueling, the positives and negatives have arisen. The argument in favor of refueling did not outnumber those who opposed it.It would be impossible to dispute the fact that the cost and the safety of faults. However, it would be very difficult to say that refueling is not going to make the cars faster either. The lighter car is faster to start the race. Cabins with 50kg of fuel will be faster than those with starting at 100kg.Based on the current maximum allowed. It wouldn't make much of a difference if the lighter load allowed the driver to push their tires a little harder to set half a second per lap.From a driver's point of view, they would like a faster speed, but they are not the ones who watch the races, so there is not much difference between those who watch. It would be incredibly unfair to attribute the recent spike in movements solely to the refueling ban. The arrival of three new teams in 2010 took a toll on the numbers, while the Pirelli designed to smash tires and DRS (Traction Reduction System) arrived in 2011 and turned the whole sport around.But it would also be wrong to say that refueling did not have a negative effect on overtaking. Statistics can paint a misleading picture, but it is rare that such a large amount of data does not provide a true overall trend, and the view that refueling hurts bypassing is supported by a number of highly experienced VIPs. Inside F1.Formula One needs to attract new fans and from now on the focus is on making a bigger impact in closed-circuit racing with more competition across the field and pockets of action. This idea of banning refueling was also to create opportunities for teams in difficulty. Also, to avoid danger to the pit crew members and the passengers in the cockpit as well.Also Read: Top Opening Partnerships in Test Cricket

Is the elimination of Line officials at the 2021 Australian Open a smart move?

  • Jan 06, 2021

With the advent of technology, tennis is doing its part to incorporate it. But this has a price. It seems likely that the linemen will be eliminated from the sports day in and day out as the falcon's eye is gaining prominence. The Australian Open 2021 has taken the step to implement the Hawk's Eye as the lead legal brand sponsor judge. But was the decision a preview of the future, or was it a precaution due to COVID-19?Why were the strip men eliminated from the Australian Open 2021?It was recently announced that the Australian Open 2021 would wear Hawk's eye in place of stadium officials. Hawkeye calls or the electronic line will be used throughout the tournament, but not in the qualifying event.This decision can be seen in two ways. First, the COVID-19 model. With the emergence of the new strain of Coronavirus, Australia has taken vigorous measures to control it. There is a facility limit and players must be quarantined for a period of 14 days. So it stands to reason that there will be fewer people in the stadiums, and getting rid of the line guards is one way to do that.Novak Djokovic sees no reason to have line judges The second is the transition to technology. Over the years, Hawk-eye has become more accurate and faster. Hence, the call for the dismissal of line officials gained momentum. The main defender of this was world number one Novak Djokovic. The Serbian was firmly against the use of guards in tournaments. His statement coincided with an incident with the assistant referee at the 2020 US Open, but the player said his statement was not due to his exclusion.“The technology is so advanced right now, there is absolutely no reason why you should keep line umpires on the Court. That’s my opinion” Djokovic said.Rafael Nadal opposes the dismissal of the linesmenBut wearing a falcon's eye eliminates the human element in tennis. World number two Rafael Nadal opposed Djokovic's idea of a non-linear judge.“Personally, I prefer the line umpires to what we have here… If you ask me what I would like to see in the future… Well, I believe we have room for evolution as a sport as tennis has not changed a lot in the last fifty years, compared to other sports, that is a reality, but at the same time I do not believe that this is the way to improve the “show.” Nadal said.Why eliminating service lines causes problems in the Australian Open 2021?Nadal can get it here. The sport will evolve over time, but eliminating the referees is not the way. The correct way is to merge both of them together. As in football, there are referees and technology working simultaneously so that all decisions are correct. Likewise, tennis can have a line and technique experts to oversee legal signs.Excluding line, officials would mean the loss of livelihoods for thousands of people. Many people trust him, and that's hard and skillful work. Eliminating them will leave them without their main source of income.Also Read: Australia Open 2021 Champions to See a Drastic Change in Prize MoneyHow will we get the new referees' chair without assistants?Moreover, the tennis match culture will change with the elimination of the umpires. Tennis hasn't changed much in years and has had a specific way of playing. Moreover, another interesting argument is that the rulers of the See are no longer rulers. So, tennis would need a way to find new referees if the linemen were removed.“Another way to think about it is that tennis is an industry and [automation is] a significant change. How are we going to create a new generation of umpires? I started as a line judge; how will young umpires get their chance?” ATP umpire Ali Nili said.Currently, electronic line calls have been used in the US Open Finals and the 2020 ATP Finals. The Australian Open 2021 is also on the train. It is meant to be a precaution, given COVID-19, but what could be an uncertainty could become a habit in the future.Also Read: Australian Open 2021 organizers forced to cancel the quarantine stay plan for international players

The way the Serbian player covers the tennis courts makes it almost as if there are two players on his side of the court.The results obtained and the success of Novak Djokovic has been phenomenal in the last decade. It turns out that he is the only player in the modern era to have won four major tournaments in a row (Wimbledon 2015, US Open 2015, Australian Open 2016, French Open 2016).Novak Djokovic is spending quality time with his family in MarbellaAs the world enters the new year, the Grand Slam champion has traveled 17 times to Marbella, Spain. Serbs trained in the warmer climates rather than the snowy regions of Serbia.Since the much-needed break was fine after a somewhat erratic season, Djokovic decided to travel to the seaside location to relax. Even the world's No. 1 has bought properties in the area.After a disappointing season last year, the Serbian ace will surely look to bounce back next Australian Open season. He will also want to forget some of the episodes he played in the previous season, such as being disqualified for accidentally hitting a woman with the ball at the US Open.Also Read: Australia Open 2021 Champions to See a Drastic Change in Prize MoneyNovak Djokovic is the favorite at the Australian Open 2021It won't be long before the eight-time Australian Open champion leaves for Australia.

Following the schedule, the Australian Open 2021 will begin on February 8, 2021. However, clouds of uncertainty still hang around the Grand Slam.The coronavirus epidemic is not over yet and it could become a major obstacle for the elderly. The effect is that the pandemic has the potential to cancel the Grand Slam.Two crew members tested positive before the Australian Open 2021Two crew members onboard tennis trips have recently tested positive for COVID-19. This is a major concern as there is a possibility that they may have infected other passengers.According to some reports, management required about 50 players to remain under strict quarantine until further orders. This is also very annoying for players as they will not be able to train outside until the following instructions arrive.In such a scenario, it's really hard for Tennis Australia to organize the event as scheduled. However, Craig Tiley, Tennis Australia's CEO, has more to say about it.Although two crew members have contracted the virus, Tilly said management will stick to the planned date without any delay or cancellation. He noted that it was unfortunate that two people had tested positive, but he also revealed that there were 643 other tests that came back negative.“Ticket sales have gone well, we have two weeks of great tennis and we definitely intend to continue with those appointments. So far, we have had 643 negative tests and two, unfortunately, they have been positive,” Tilly said.From Tiley's words, it looks absolutely certain that the Australian Open 2021 will take place in its regular schedule. However, there are still three weeks left before Grand Slam. Even though Tiley appears assertive in her position, she will have to change something in her plans if more positive situations arise in the future.As of now, the Australian Open 2021 is underway and will be held from February 8, 2021, to February 21, 2021. It will be the first major tournament of the year, so fans are very excited about it. .

At the last meeting of the FIS Council on May 25, 2020, the Italian Winter Sports Federation (FISI) submitted a request to postpone the World Championships until the 2022 season due to the massive shock of the Covid-19 outbreak. The city of Cortina and the Italian region of Veneto were among the first and hardest hit, with unprecedented financial ramifications for the local and national business community and the general population.Since the request, the FIS family and Infront's commercial and media rights holders have gathered with the broadcasters, sponsors, and partners to support the Italian Winter Sports Federation, and have actively collaborated to find a solution so that del Mundo Cortina 2021 can be staged as originally scheduled."We are pleased that we were able to find a solution whereby the FIS Cortina 2021 Alpine Ski Championship will be held during the originally scheduled period in February 2021, to replace it as one of the most prominent events in the winter calendar in the FIS," the FIS said. President Gian Franco Casper. "The last month of efforts to find this solution demonstrates the strong collaborative spirit of the ski family and relevant stakeholders to enable this important decision to be made."“FISI has worked closely over the past five years with all stakeholders participating in the World Championships in Cortina,” said FISI President Flavio Roda. “After speaking with them in recent weeks, it was evident that there was a strong desire to implement the event in 2021 and put all available resources into ensuring that the World Championships are held at the highest level. Building on these comments and the clear commitment from all parties, FISI expressed to the FIS Board the importance of These world championships to be presented in 2021 as a positive sign for the entire country of Italy.The FIS Alpine Ski World Championships is a very important event for the International Skating Federation and its member national ski associations during the two-year cycle, as well as for its many stakeholders. This applies to sports promotion, athletes, financial aspects, visibility, and sponsorships of the National Skating Federation, as well as broadcast rights holders of tournaments, sponsors, and partners.Also Read: SUPER BOWL | WHEN, WHERE AND EVERYTHING

IPL 2021 Auctions: BCCI in a fix, auctions likely to be conducted without a IPL title sponsor on board

IPL Auctions 2021 - No major sponsor on board yet:The biggest cricket league in the world, the Indian Premier League (IPL), once again has no sponsors. The relationship between IPL and title sponsor Dream11 ended on December 31 with a very remote chance to renew the deal with the flagship fantasy platform. Neither the official IPL website (Iplt20.com) nor any of the IPL press releases bear the Dream11 name or logo.Senior BCCI Officer in Sponsor Status IPL 2021. We are told that it is likely that the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) will make a new bid for the main sponsor, as a return to the former sponsors VIVO is not possible."Bidding for the new main sponsor is the only possible option currently available. The IPL deal for 2020 was almost half of it and we cannot continue it. A return to LIVE is also unlikely in the current situation. A Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry official said:" The final decision will be made on the new bid. And sponsor the title soon. "It should be noted that BCCI suspended its 440 Cr sponsorship deal with VIVO in the wake of anti-China sentiment ahead of IPL 2020. This led to Dream11 entering as a title sponsor, but for 222Cr, which is nearly half the price of the VIVO bargain. While signing the agreement, Dream11 tried to negotiate with BCCI to extend the rights to IPL 2022 also at the same price. But BCCI held up and the deal was eventually signed for only one season, i.e. IPL 2020.Will the auction take place without the main sponsor on board?The Board of Directors decided to hold the IPL Auctions 2021 on February 18th in Chennai, which is less than 3 weeks old. It will be difficult for BCCI to terminate the main sponsor before IPL auctions 2021.The IPL Auction is a widely broadcast and televised event in which the Main Sponsor, in particular, earns a large number of Miles and it currently appears that the auction in Chennai will be held without the Main Sponsor.Options with BCCI -1) Renegotiate the deal with Dream11:- Seems unlikely. This could put BCCI in a legal mess. The title sponsorship tender published by BCCI prior to the IPL 2020 was for only one year and if BCCI decided to renegotiate the agreement with Dream11 for another year, that would be contrary to the terms of the bid and could be challenged by the competing parties.2) Return to VIVO:- BCCI has all contractual rights to return to VIVO as the main sponsor. But the question is, will they risk defying the public sentiment that is still against China and Chinese companies? Once again, the choice appears unlikely.3) Bid for the main sponsor:-This appears to be the most feasible option in the current circumstances. This gives everyone involved a fair chance. Even BCCI can get a prime sponsor of similar value to what VIVO promised thanks to the massive audience numbers of IPL 2020.The problem with choice is lack of time. The Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) is unlikely to launch a tender in the next few days and complete the paperwork ahead of IPL auctions 2021.So don't be surprised if auctions for the world's largest cricket league take place without a major sponsor on board on February 18.Also Read: India vs England 2021 | England tour of India Full Schedule, venue, dates - All you need to know

Rafael Nadal is currently preparing for the 2021 season by participating in the ATP Cup, and the Spaniard was expected to oversee the pitch in his first match against Australian Alex de Minor, but the 34-year-old withdrew from the match due to a back injury. There is more bad news in this regard.Rafael Nadal will not play his second game against Stefanos TsitsipasFans were very disappointed in Rafael Nadal's absence against Alex de Minor. We will have to wait another day to get close, but the Spanish team is now facing more negativity as the tournament progresses.Spain comfortably overtook Australia in their first match, but once again struggled with a squad shortage as they faced a promising Greek side led by Stefanos Tsitsipas. The main event in this confrontation was the showdown between Tsitsipas and Rafael Nadal, but the match appears to be off the table.A back injury has been worrying Rafael Nadal for some time and preventing him from playing professional matches. It has been confirmed that Rafael Nadal will not play against Greece and that is a problem.Roberto Bautista Agut replaced Rafael Nadal against Australia, and it is expected that he will also face the challenge from Tsitsipas.While Spain has their support, tennis fans will be disappointed that the second-ranked player in the world is no longer in good shape ahead of the Australian Open 2021.“I'm not good enough to play tomorrow” - Rafael NadalThis is not the perfect start for Rafael Nadal until 2021. He had two good matches in the group stage of the ATP Cup 2021 but had to answer them from the bench.The Spaniard should not be disappointed with this back injury, it is just the beginning of a new season. There is still a lot to come, but the 34-year-old declared his inability to participate in the ATP Cup with a disappointing message. "I'm not good enough to play tomorrow," Rafael Nadal said.However, if Spain can defeat Greece, Rafael Nadal can return and help his country in the ATP Cup semi-finals. It all depends on how Spain plays against Greece in their next match.Also Read: Tennis in 2019 Rafael Nadal on top as new faces make mark in women's game

IPL 2021 Big Update: VIVO to transfer IPL title rights

IPL 2021 Big Update: Chinese mobile maker Vivo, which has suspended its IPL sponsorship rights for the 2020 edition, is considering exiting the Indian Premier League by transferring its rights to Interested bidders, which may include Dream11 fantasy gaming platform and startup Unacademy Tech Education.Dream11 was the IPL title sponsor for the 2020 release, taking the rights to Rs 222 crore, which is nearly half (Rs 440 crore) of what Vivo paid annually for a five-year contract.It is understood that in the prevailing situation where the geopolitical relations between China and India are in a delicate state, Vivo realizes that it is unwise to continue the partnership for the remaining two years.“It is almost final for Vivo to exit the IPL address sponsorship agreement by mutual consent with the board. It has been suspended for the 2020 edition. However, there is a clause that allows them to transfer their outstanding responsibilities as sole sponsors for the title to the new winner. If the board agrees in principle, it could happen. This was stated by a senior source in the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry to PTI on condition of anonymity.With the IPL set to expand 9 or 10 teams in 2022, the new bidder is expected to secure the title sponsorship rights for at least three years.Dream11 and Unacademy will present their offerings to Vivo. In any case, Unacademy is an associated sponsor and is willing to offer a larger sum to acquire the rights to Vivo, ”said an industry expert who has been tracking developments.MPL, who is the sponsor team for Team India, is known to be unable to choose Title Sponsorship because Dream11 was a Senior Partner and will have what they call in the sponsorship language "Category Exclusive".BCCI bosses hope that a clearer picture will emerge by the end of the week once Vivo has a tangible final presentation.“See, Vivo paid nearly 440 crores (Rs 2,190 crores for 5 years). Now, if BCCI calls for bids, like last year when Dream11 paid Rs 222 crores, it might go up, but it can't be doubled. But if it is There is a transfer of rights, so the previous amount can be equalized or even improved.The IPL Auction will take place on February 18th in Chennai with a maximum of 61 available spaces."Since the transfer of property rights will take some time, it is expected that the Vivo logo will be used during the auction on February 18th."Also Read: IPL 2021 AUCTIONS: BCCI IN A FIX, AUCTIONS LIKELY TO BE CONDUCTED WITHOUT A IPL TITLE SPONSOR ON BOARD

Indian hockey forward Dilpreet Singh says Taking each training session as opportunity to make strong case for spot in Olympic squad

Indian hockey striker Dilpreet Singh, who was training at the Sports Authority of India (SAI) Center in Bangalore as part of the potential major-male group, plans to make the cut in the Round of 16 final that he will represent to India in the prestigious Tokyo Olympics, set to begin in July.The 21-year-old striker said that since there are no major competitions in 2020 affected by the epidemic, he takes every training session as an opportunity to make a strong case for a place on the Olympic team. We don't want to worry about factors that are not under our control. I don't want to wait for the chance to play a match for India to defend myself but to make the most of the opportunity here in the camp to show my skills and prove myself. "We give 100 percent of each training session," Dilpreet said in a statement.Speaking of his development and the opportunity for him to train with senior players again in the camp, the youngster added: "I've been working on my technical game. I improved my end. Watching the older players playing and spending time with them helps the younger players gain confidence and of course improve." We ask our veteran players for advice and guidance, and they have been of great help to us at all times. "Dilpreet, who was part of the teams that won the silver and bronze medals at the Breda Hockey Champions Cup 2018 and Asian Games 2018, respectively, returned to the junior starting group after the 2018 World Cup.Speaking of the omission, the boy from Amritsar said, “I was very upset with myself because I was a part of almost every major tournament and I was looking forward to appearing in the Olympics as well. But the omission of the senior core group affected me so much and made me realize that I had squandered the golden opportunity and I had to work harder. "However, a year later, after doing well in potential youth basics, Dilpreet was called up for the FIH Pro League match against World Champion Belgium."I started from scratch. I trained hard in the junior camp to at least get a place in the first team. He used to follow every first-team training exercise. I was in constant contact with the top players for that and asked them for guidance, and finally, in 2020, I'm back." "To the main group of the FIH Hockey Pro League. The postponement of the Olympic Games gave players like me the opportunity to improve the situation and make the most of it. The choice of teams is not in my hands, I focus on giving 100 percent on the field and improving day after day."Also Read: The 47th FIH Statutory Congress will happen in Delhi

IPL 2021 – CSK Skoda deal falls apart: The Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) did not start well for MS Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings. First, Mutout, the long-term front-shirt partner refused to renew the title sponsorship contract with Team Doni. Now the deal with Czech car manufacturer Skoda has collapsed in favor of CSK.It is noteworthy that Skoda has been reported to have signed a 25 Cr deal with CSK as the main sponsor of IPL 2021. But for unknown reasons, Skoda decided to withdraw from the deal. According to CSK management sources, online fashion company Myntra is listed as CSK's new senior partner for this season.We contacted Myntra management, but they declined to confirm the development. It is worth noting that the agreement between CSK-Myntra will be in the range of 22-23 kronor, which is slightly less than what CSK expected from the market.Founded in 2007, Flipkart acquired Myntra in 2014. The company later acquired the online fashion store Jabong in 2016. Since then, it has grown into one of the largest online fashion sites in the country.Is performance the reason why CSK is struggling with sponsorships?MS Dhoni’s CSK has always been a hit with sponsors. Three of the IPL champions did not fight for endorsements. According to some industry experts, things have changed now. Team performance in the IPL 2020 and team age may influence the CSK this year according to a few experts.“IPL is all about performance. When CSK was performing, Dhoni was on top of the world – brands were lining up CSK’s doors. With performance getting patchy by the day and Dhoni in retirement mode – it will be a little tough for CSK this year”, according to one of the top industry experts dealing in IPL team sponsorships since its inception.CSK’s squad for IPL 2021CSK retained players – MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, N Jagadeesan, Faf Du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sam Curran, Ravi Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Mitchell Santner, Josh Hazlewood, Shardul Thakur, Karn Sharma, KM Asif, Imran Tahir, R.

Kieron Pollard hits Six Sixes in an over – Pollard Joins Yuvraj Singh: Multilevel West Indies and Mumbai Indians, Kieron Pollard has become the second man in T20 cricket history to reach 6 stats in one game. Bullard crushed Sri Lankan Akila Danangaya with six women in his sixth domestic hunt.The Mumbai Indians player smashed Dananjaya after hitting the West Indies with a hat-trick in the fourth game, including Chris Gayle's comeback for a duck. Bullard became the eighth batsman in cricket history, smashing six sixes in one game.5.1 Dananjaya to Pollard, Six times, Bullard drops to one knee and hits that long ball on the long one. There was a cry to catch him, but Pollard cleared the boundaries at some distance. 5.2 Dananjaya to Pollard, Six races this time puts it on the viewscreen. So full of Dananjaya this time and Pollard stuck with this 5.3 Dananjaya to Pollard, The SIX runs a hat-trick with six more. A little thicker and wider, but that doesn't matter for Pollard, who crushes it from a distance. Bullard is not worried about those popups 5.4 Dananjaya to Pollard, Six races make it four races in a row! What a strange day for Akila Danangaya, who was beaten for four, six, and six in a row after a hat-trick in the last round. It was a long ball and Pollard pulled it down the middle of the middle. Hit it by rolling and keep sailing 5.5 Dananjaya to Pollard, Six run stops! Five Six on Five Balls by Kron Pollard. This is a butcher shop. Bullard swings back and uses all of his power to fire it directly over the player's head. 5.6 Dananjaya to Pollard, SIX does not work, no. Kieron Pollard has smashed six stats in one here. Yuvraj Singh finally has a company. Shot on pillows and slide, just a simple slide as it flies over the deep edge of the middle deal. Arch from Pollard to admit his teammates' breakdownPollard does Yuvraj: Former Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh is the only batsman before Bullard to achieve this feat in T20 International. Yuvraj defeated Stuart Broad in the 2007 T20 World Cup match in Durban.Pollard, who was sent off for 38 of 11 balls, burst at six by hitting the first ball down the field and then putting Dananjaya on display from the second ball. Dananjaya drifted off the trunk of the third ball, but Pollard slapped it carelessly, as the fourth ball was deposited over the middle of the deep wicket while the fifth ball crashed over the archer's head. Dananjaya came around the wicket, but Pollard pulled him off his stands to set the record six and six and bowed to celebrate the occasion in front of the Coolidge crowd.It was a rapid turnover of fortune for the Sri Lankan worker, who had just scored a hat-trick in the previous round, sacking starter Evin Lewis, Gayle, and wicketkeeper Nicholas Boran in the fourth game.Pollard joined Yuvraj and Herschel Gibbs from South Africa as the only batsmen to achieve this feat in an international match under the Gibbs brand in the 2007 World Cup Finals against the Netherlands.

With India striker Shreyas Iyer excluded from current Ind vs Eng series and unlikely to be available for IPL 2021, the big question is who will lead Delhi Capitals in this year's IPL. According to sources at Delhi Capitals (DC), Rishabh Pant, India's biggest match-winner of the past six months, is likely to be responsible for driving DC during the season.Based on the information available, DC promoters Kiran Kumar Gandhi and Barth Jindal in consultation with Coach Ricky Ponting will receive the last call soon."The team is still gathering all the information about Shreyas' injury case. The team promoters and head coach will make the final decision on who will coach us, but it is clear that Rishabh Pant Deputy Commander should be the automatic selection," said one of the sources closely associated with the Delhi Capitals.Besides Pant, Delhi Capitals has a few other candidates such as Ajinkya Rahane, Steven Smith, Shikhar Dhawan, and R Ashwin in the team who have had experience with a leading IPL franchise in the past, but DC is unlikely to look to another source. . Beyond the pant.According to the source, the Delhi Capitals management is likely to announce the name of the new captain before the end of this week.IPL 2021: What is the status of Shreyas Aire? Will it be available for the second stage of the IPL?Shreyas Iyer dislocated his shoulder while playing during the first ODI match between India and England on Tuesday. Based on the information available, Ayer is currently in severe pain and is likely to undergo surgery.In the event that Iyer undergoes surgery, he will be out of the game for at least 4 months. As a second scenario, if surgery is not required, it will take at least 6 to 8 weeks to return. In both scenarios, Iyer is unlikely to appear in IPL 202I this year."You will have to undergo surgery. So it not only looks like the first part of an IPL, but Iyer will miss the IPL completely. It could take at least four months before you can go online again. A source said the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry" Severe pain. "Iyer took the helm of the Delhi team in mid-2018 and under his leadership, the team has performed well since then, once they reached the play-off rounds as well as last season.Ayer is unlikely to play for English County Lancashire in the one-day tournament. On Monday, Lancashire announced that Iyer would sign the tournament, starting July 23.Iyer, 26, suffered the injury in the eighth inning of England when he dived into Johnny Bayerstow's blast from Chardoll Thakur's pacemaker. He looked with great pain as he left the field, clutching his shoulder.DC will not only miss Ayer as the leader but also as a formidable hitter.

With DC captain Shreyas Air disqualified for the entire IPL season, the Delhi Capitals management called an emergency meeting to decide on the seasoned captain. Based on the information available, DC promoters Kiran Kumar Gandhi and Barth Jindal along with Coach Ricky Bunting will be participating in a conference call today to decide on the captain's name for the IPL 2021.We were informed on Thursday that Rishabh Pant is the preferred candidate to lead the Delhi Capitals. The DC promoters, the coach, and a few other members of the administration will likely give their stamp of approval to the same, although according to the sources, deliberations on some other names are not excluded."The team promoters and the head coach will make the final decision on who will coach us, but it is clear that Rishabh Pant Deputy Commander should be the automatic choice," said one of the sources closely associated with Delhi Capitals.IPL 2021 Delhi Capitals Captaincy – Names that can be discussed for captaincy role?Besides Pant, the capitals of Delhi currently have several options for the position of captain. They have Ajinkya Rahane, Steven Smith, and R Ashwin in their ranks. All of these names have experience from the leading IPL franchise in the past, but the source told us that DC is unlikely to look beyond Pant.Of all the potential candidates, only Pant is not an IPL franchise yet.Ashwin - Leading Indian superstar KingsXI Punjab for two seasons in 2018, 2019. Overall, Ashwin has 28 games experience, 12 wins, and 16 lost. His record for KXIP was not overly encouraging. Although considered one of the game's best readers, DC is unlikely to hold back in handing the Captain to a player who has failed as captain with some other perks.Stephen Smith - 43 games, 25 won, lost 17. Smith has a lot of experience driving the IPL franchises, but what works against him is that his place in the squad is not very secure. He also failed to live up to expectations as captain of the Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2020; There is no chance that the metropolitan administration will give Smith leadershipAjinkya Rahane - Highly successful as captain of the Indian Test Team in Australia. But he has had a captain disaster for the Rajasthan Royals, he's unlikely to go with Rahani as captain. His team captain's record says: 25 matches: 9 won and 16 lost.By comparison, Rishabh Pant has never led the IPL franchise, but her enthusiasm, current form and most importantly, aggressive mindset works in her favor. Additionally, DC has groomed him as a future leader over the past two years by appointing him as Deputy Leader in 2019, 2020. All this indicates that the Delhi team is unlikely to look beyond Pant to gain the lead role.IPL 2021: DC Captain Shreyas Iyer to undergo surgery on April 8thIPL 2021 - Shreyas Iyer Injury: The Shreyas Iyer injured shoulder has been confirmed ready for surgery.

IPL 2021 New Rules: The BCCI said, in its revised IPL 2021 playing terms, which have been traded among franchisees, that 20 must be completed within 90 minutes. Previously, you should have started the 22nd in the 90th minute.According to Cricbuzz, the BCCI said: "As a match control measure, the number 20 has been included in each half now at 90 minutes, and the 22nd previously had to start at the 90th minute or earlier."In developing this point, the BCCI said: “The minimum bonus rate to be achieved in IPL matches would be 14.11 hourly bonuses (ignoring the time-out required).In non-stop matches, this means that the 20th Final must end within 90 minutes (85 minutes of playing time plus 5 minutes of time-out) from the start of the innings. For late-stage or intermittent matches in which the turn is scheduled to be less than 20 bonuses, the maximum time of 90 minutes will be reduced by 4 minutes and 15 seconds for each time the innings are reduced. "By thinking more about timing, the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry entrusted him with the responsibility of ensuring the verdict of the fourth referee and giving him the power to warn the hitter if he indulged in time-wasting tactics. "In the event that time allocations are given to the field team under clause 12.7.3.4 above (loss of time by the hitting team), this time will be deducted from the allocations granted to the hitting team mentioned in determining your surplus rate. The fourth referee must ensure that the leader of the hitting (if not He is not at the gate) and the team manager is aware of any warnings. "IPL 2021 New Rules: 90-minute time restriction and no soft signalBCCI removed the soft signal base in the IPL. According to the new rule, the soft signal from the court ruling will not affect the third ruling. The BCCI stated that “a field judgment that gives a soft signal when the decision is referred to the third referee will not be applicable”.Reflecting on this, the BCCI said: “If both officials in the field need the help of the third referee to make a decision, the final referee of the shooter will first make a decision on the field after consulting with the referee's final referee. Forward, before consulting with a two-way radio with The third verdictSuch consultation will be initiated by the final referee of the player aiming for the third referee by making the shape of the TV screen with his own hands. The third referee will determine whether the hitter has been caught, whether the pitch is a hit, or whether the hitter has intentionally obstructed the field. In the event of a fair reception, the third referee will use all available technical support. The third referee will inform his decision. "IPL 2021 New Rules: 90-minute time restriction and no soft signalThere was a clamor to abolish the soft signal in the cricket world and it was India's patron Virat Kohli who spoke out the most against Al Qaeda. He was also against the ruling on LBW's decisions, but BCCI decided to go ahead. "The referee's call is the concept within the DRS according to which the final referee's decision will remain on the field, and which will be applied under the specified circumstances where the ball-tracking technology indicates a marginal decision regarding the area of influence or the wicket zone (sic)."The BCCI also revised the short-term decision of the arbitrators. The third referee is authorized to override the outside referee's decision to reduce one set of the hitting team's total. There were a lot of controversies last year during the Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) and Delhi Capitals match where a short-term decision proved incorrect by the square match referee was costly to the Punjab team.New IPL 2021 Rules: BCCI emphasizes a 90-minute time restriction and no weak signal. The Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry said the changes will take effect on April 1.Also Read: IPL 2021: DELHI CAPITALS PROMOTERS CALL EMERGENCY MEETING TO DECIDE ON CAPTAIN FOR 14TH EDITION OF IPL

IPL 2021 RR Playing XI vs PBKS: Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler ready to open for Rajasthan Royals

  • Apr 12, 2021

Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) will begin their 2021 IPL campaign on Monday at Wankhede Stadium. RR will take the field under new leadership led by Kumar Sangakkara and led by Sanju Samson. His first assignment will be to pick a strong and stable starting pair, a crucial factor behind the inaugural champion's poor performance last season.Based on the news coming from the Royals' camouflage, it's very likely that RR will choose the UK bursting duo Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler. Skipper Samson, while unwilling to reveal his cards publicly, said junior players will have a long rope this season."It depends. I can't tell you anything. I and Sanja (Kara) will try to provide the best combination for our team and in fact it is always necessary to give the spouses or individuals enough time in the tournament. So I think it will show a little. Of stability, the rest depends on the way we go." Sanju Samson stated."I think it is a decision that we will make with the total purchase of the players involved. We want to keep our options open. The most important thing is for the players to be clearly informed of their choices and make them abide by them." Said RR Manager Cricket Kumar SangakkaraIPL 2021 RR Playing XI vs PBKS: Why Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes will be a good choice as openers?Last season, the Rajasthan franchise tried five sets starting in Butler-Steve Smith, Yashasoi Jaiswal-Butler and Jaiswal-Smith. There was also a chance to pair Stokes-Buttler, but only for two games, only to settle for Stokes-Robin Uthappa in the end.The English couple's first match together was an opening against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The new role affected them and both left cheaply. While Stoke scored five runs, Butler was sent off for 16. However, there was a significant improvement in the second match against the Delhi Capitals. They sewed an inaugural partnership of 63 races. Stokes has contributed 41 times, while Butler has 22 times to his name.But its current form is most important to the RR when choosing a starting pair. The duo were in great shape in the recently concluded White Ball series against India. Second-best goalscorer for Stokes' national team, with 135 points in three matches. On the other hand, Buttler had an influence on the shorter version of the game. He was the best contestant on his team and second overall behind Indian team captain Virat Kohli. In three matches, the goalkeeper scored 172 points.England and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Ewen Morgan also believes that Joss Butler and Ben Stokes would be the right and most exciting choice for Rajasthan to start their roles. "The two obviously will open to Rajasthan this year in the IPL. So it would be great to see it."IPL 2021 RR Playing XI vs PBKS: What will be the batting line-up?The biggest problem Rajasthan faces is the weakness of its Indian heart, which has not been steadfast. Samson has rarely appeared in five consecutive matches in either version in recent years. Pacer Jaydev Unadkat, bought for Rs 11.5 crore in 2018, has failed delivery while Manan Vohra has only been awesome on rare occasions. It will be interesting to see what role Samson, Onadkat, and Vohra will play this season.With Steve Smith out of the picture now, RR is likely at # 3, while Yashaswi Jaiswal or Manan Vohra may be at # 4. Rajasthan will miss David Miller as he's still under quarantine and managing a team waiting for an update on this. In his absence, Ryan Parage will likely be the No. 5 hitters. Rahul Tiwatia will resume his duties in sixth place and he is ready to repeat his role as runner-up like last season.IPL 2021 RR Playing XI vs PBKS: Bowling unit a big headacheRajasthan is a team with an inexperienced bowling unit. With the exception of Chris Morris, which is bought for 16.25 crore Indian rupees, there's no dreadful pace on the side. Their speed bowling star Joffra Archer is not yet available due to injury. To add to his fears, Bangladeshi escort Mustafa Rahman will be absent from the opening match due to the quarantine.While Morris will be the leader of Rajasthan, Jaidev Onadkat and Kartik Tiyagi will likely be his alternates. In the spinning department, Shreyas Gopal will join Tewatia. Sangakkara says an inexperienced bowling alley can be beneficial to your campaign."Lack of experience can work for you sometimes and other times it means that the opposition didn't see it either. But fast bowling, especially in IPL, is not an easy task and we saw it yesterday (during DC vs CSK) too. Sometimes the wicket is really good at hitting or Most wickets are so. So I'm sure our junior bowlers will advance we had Kartik Tiyagi, who did really well last season on spots. And this year we have a new addition in Kuldeep Yadav and Chetan Sakariya. I think it's about keeping them focused on their work. Training them and implementing game plans in different scenarios.RR Playing XI vs PBKS in IPL 2021 (Likely):1) Jos Buttler, 2) Ben Stokes, 3) Sanju Samson, 4) Riyan Parag, 5) Shivam Dubey 6) Rahul Tewatia, 7) Chris Morris, 8) Andrew Tye  9) Shreyas Gopal, 10) Kartik Tyagi, 11) Jaydev UnadkatIPL 2021 – Rajasthan Royals Full Squad: Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, Jos Buttler, Riyan Parag, Shreyas Gopal, Rahul Tewatia, Mahipal Lomror, Kartik Tyagi, Andrew Tye, Jaydev Unadkat, Mayank Markande, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Anuj Rawat, David Miller, Manan Vohra, Shivam Dube, Chris Morris, Mustafizur Rahman, Chetan Sakariya, KC Cariappa, Liam Livingstone, Kuldip Yadav, Akash SinghAlso Read: IPL 2021: BCCI requests Aviation ministry for separate IPL Check-in counters, daily testing to fight Covid-19

After the clinical final against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Eoin Morgan's Kolkata Knight Riders will look to solve the Mumbai mystery in their second IPL match at MA Chidambaram on Tuesday. The KKR was an entirely different unit, in the way they defeated David Warner's SRH by ten runs in their first match on Sunday.Be it the aggression demonstrated by the top-ranked or the explosive ending of Dinesh Karthik, KKR demonstrated a fearless approach under the leadership of patron Eoin Morgan.Morgan's intention was evident at the moment of the launch when he decided to abandon his most trusted Lieutenant, Sunil Naraine.However, they now had routine duties. Mumbai remains the best team on paper. The five-time winning champions are packed with powerful hitters like Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, and Kieron Pollard. Add a bowling lethal unit in IM for Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Bolt.KKR vs MI in IPL 2021: Who has the edge?If individual records and team strength are taken into account, the match between KKR and MI could seem tough. But this was not the case. In 28 matches so far in IPL, MI has always dominated KKR, winning 21 matches against KKR's 6 and the other without providing any results.Matches Played28MI Won21KKR Won6No Result1KKR vs MI in IPL 2021: How will Kolkata try to get the better of Mumbai?Nitesh Rana and Chubbman's opening generation mix started from left and right with the attack from the first ball, clearly indicating that the new approach has written the slogan of Morgan's success everywhere.With a solid median ranking in Andre Russell, Karthik and Morgan, 2020 has been a promising season for KKR, but aimless planning hasn't helped their cause.This time, KKR cemented their middle ranking by adding Bangladeshi superstar Shakeeb Al Hassan, while Morgan, in his full season as captain, is adding a new dimension to the team.Rana's skilled work on his wrist and super strength was shown on Sunday and made sure they stayed ahead despite Rashid Khan's double whammy in the form of generation and messengers.After 80 balls of 56 balls, it was Karthik Under Fire who hit an undefeated cameo of 22 nine-ball passes to propel KKR to a total of 187 from 6 wins.KKR will be looking to shoot the defending champions five times on Tuesday. They have only won once in their last 12 matches against IM, and they have an overall record in head-to-head matches 6-21.Ultimately, however, the whole affair will end in a battle of wits between Morgan and Rohit Sharma, who under MI won a record fifth Premier League title in the Premier League last season in the United Arab Emirates.MI will be a real challenge for KKR as the defending champions will be desperate to secure their first win of the season after losing a Wicket to Royal Challengers Bangalore in an IPL opener on Friday.KRR found it easy against SRH players, who lack firepower, but on Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult, MI attacking would be an entirely different proposition.Jill's struggle to reach the T20 rate has been a concern for KKR and it will be interesting to see the young novice face the best in the business.Also Read: Virat Kohli: Superb looking tattoos and their meaning

We were told that the matches will continue as scheduled in the designated venues. There was no written communication, but it was done. We are verbally told not only our franchisor but the eight franchisees that they are not looking elsewhere for alternative locations yet. Yes, I agree with BCCI's view that the shutdown could be a blessing in disguise when it comes to IPL matches in Mumbai. "Earlier, IPL Chairman Brijesh Patil explained that IPL will remain in Mumbai despite the increasing cases in Maharashtra city and state. IPL matches will be held in Mumbai. Once you are in a bubble nothing happens. Even last season in the UAE, there were some of these events in the lead up to the event, but once the tournament started, everything was fine, ”he said recently, adding:“ We have the necessary permission and guarantees. The state government to hold matches there. Mumbai will only host ten matches between 10-25 April and there will be nothing to worry about inside the vital bubble.

Villarreal beat Manchester United 11-10 on penalties to win their first major title after tying 1-1 in the Europa League final when goalkeeper David De Gea missed the decisive shot with a superb penalty shootout. Gerrard Moreno put Villarreal ahead in the 29th minute of the Spanish club's first European final, but Edinson Cavani equalized early in the second half before Unai Emery's side won with a penalty kick, prolonging the drought. Injured Eric Bailey replaced Harry Maguire at the center of defense, and the United captain was surprisingly among the substitutes despite suffering an ankle ligament injury two weeks ago.De Gea started to lead ahead of Dean Henderson on goal, while Paul Pogba played a more traditional role in midfield as Fred was deemed fit enough to have a seat on the bench.An early collision between Juan Foyth and Pogba caused a bloodshot injury to the former Tottenham defender, but both sides were slow to press ahead on a cold, wet night on the Baltic coast.Rapona's brilliant cross by Carlos Bacca created an opportunity for Pau Torres, the center back with a linked summer pass to Man United, while Marcus Rashford Jeronimo Rulli tested with immersion effort from a distance.Jeremy Pino, who broke Iker Casillas' record as the youngest Spanish player to start a major European final, at 18 years and 218 days, veered against him, but Villarreal quickly got ahead of him.Danny Parejo hit a free-kick from the left flank and Moreno ran away from Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof, bypassing De Gea while the Swede tightened his shirt tight.Moreno equalized the 82nd goal in Villarreal, the club's record for ex-Manchester United striker Giuseppe Rossi.But it also sparked a reaction from United, as fighter Scott McTominay saw his shot derailed before Mason Greenwood stormed the area and sent a powerful cross that Raul Albiol almost hit his net.Another free-kick from Parejo caused panic in the United area just after the break, with Mano Trejoeros sending a cross into the goal before clearing the ball with Moreno and Carlos Bacca in dangerously lurking.Maybe Alfonso Pedraza was lucky because no further action was taken when he appeared to be hunting Greenwood in the Villarreal area, even though United took advantage of a stroke of luck.And a header fell from a corner kick in front of Rashford, whose air volley slipped through Cavani went into the net with Rowley unable to recover after anticipating the first shot.It was Uruguay's sixth goal in the competition this season, and all of that in their last four matches, one that gave United the momentum.Bruno Fernandez hit the ball wide while Cavani tried unsuccessfully to quickly reset the ball, then the striker headed straight for Torres with a missed shot from Shaw.United continued to control the ball as Villarreal absorbed the pressure, but the Spaniards remained a threat as Torres gathered at the end of organizational time.Alberto Moreno cut wide as United got tired, prompting Solskjaer to make his first changeover 100 minutes later when Fred replaced Greenwood.The first 21 penalties were converted successfully before Rolle refused De Gea's bid as United lost for the sixth time in seven sets, giving Emery their fourth European League title.Also read: FIFA Club World Cup 2020-21: Teams, fixtures, dates & where will it take place                 FIFA U-17 Womens World Cup To Be Held In India In Oct 22: FIFA

"He has made no secret of his desire to continue competing at the highest level and winning titles, and of course our ambition as a team is to do the same."Crowds of Paris Saint-Germain fans gathered at Paris Le Bourget airport to greet Messi, who wore a jersey with the slogan "Ici c'est Paris" ("This is Paris").The words are a longtime familiar refrain from a favored fan chant at Parc des Princes stadium, where Messi is to be presented to them before kickoff of Saturday night's game against Strasbourg. So excited was his arrival that police had to push him to prevent the airport's metal barriers from falling down as fans rushed forward to get a better view. He then traveled to Paris, escorted by a police escort, which included several officers on motorcycles, all dressed in black at the rear. When the disbelief of relegation to one of the greatest footballers of all time became a sensation, many gathered to catch a glimpse of Messi on the field. They got their wish when the smiling star briefly greeted them before undergoing a medical examination. Earlier, Messi's father and agent, Jorge, also confirmed that his son was moving to Paris Saint-Germain in a brief exchange with reporters at Josep Taradillas Barcelona's El Prat airport, before boarding his flight in afternoon.Messi arrived with his wife and his three children and boarded a private jet."With all that, towards a new adventure. All five together," said Antonella Roccuzzo on Instagram with a photo of her with her husband on the plane.PSG supporters have witnessed their club's transformation over the past decade since the arrival of sovereign investments from Qatar tied to the emir. Once Messi's contract with Barcelona expired and the Catalan club couldn't retain him, Paris Saint-Germain was one of the few clubs that was able to finance a deal to sign the world's best player six times.Messi's arrival gives Paris Saint-Germain massive attacking options, as he is linked with World Cup winner Kylian Mbappé and Brazilian forward Neymar.Neymar posted on Instagram a video of the two hugging and playing for Barcelona: "back together."While PSG had to pay 222 million euros (then $261 million) to sign Neymar from Barcelona in 2017, there was no transfer fee for Messi. Messi has become the most desiered free agent in football history after his attempts to stay at Barcelona were rejected last week by the Spanish League because his salary did not meet financial regulations, with the Catalan club heavily in debt. 1.2 billion euros (1.4 million dollars)  And soon, Mauricio Pochettino, coach of Paris Saint-Germain, got in touch with his Argentine after Barcelona announced last Thursday that Messi would be leaving the club, he joined at age 13. Messi won every major title with Barcelona and was granted a emotional press conference on Sunday to mark the end of an era.Only Cristiano Ronaldo in the current era challenges Messi's status as the greatest of all time. Paris Saint-Germain is hoping not only that Messi will help the team regain the French title it lost to Lille last season, but that it will ultimately win the Champions League.If Pochettino used the 4-3-3 method, the three in front could see Messi on the right. What should be less demanding is Paris Saint-Germain's compliance with the UEFA Financial Fair Play Rules. Some flexibility in the rules has been provided due to the pandemic and the changes are due to the system that is designed to stop losses. Paris Saint-Germain President Al-Khelaifi,as President of the Association of European Clubs and a member of the UEFA Executive Committee, is involved in the process of discussing a broader update of the FFP that could once again allow a spending without control. Also Read- Olympics: Rowers Arjun and Arvind finish eleventh in lightweight Double sculls in Tokyo

Afghan national team footballer Zaki Anwari dies in fall from US plane at Kabul airport

On Thursday, the Afghan news agency Ariana reported that Zaki Anwari, a soccer player for the Afghan national team, died after falling from a US plane at the Kabul airport on Monday. Crowds of people seeking to flee Afghanistan have gathered at the airport since Taliban fighters took power on Sunday, many of whom were seen trying to board a moving plane. Ariana said that Zaki Anwari fell from a US Air Force Boeing C-17 plane, and the death was confirmed by the Directorate General for Sports. Anwari was one of thousands of Afghans who flocked to Hamid Karzai International Airport on Monday, a day after the Taliban seized the Afghan capital, hoping to board a plane out of the country. He reportedly boarded a C-17 that was about to leave Kabul. Zaki Anwari’s remains were said to have been found aboard the US Air Force C-17 transport plane after the aircraft dashed to escape the advancing Taliban while carrying hundreds of refugees. Hundreds of Afghans were seen crowding a US Air Force plane as it took off from the runway. Some managed to stick to the wheels of flight or sit on the wings, only to fall into the sky. New videos emerged from the Kabul airport showing women crying for help outside the gates and barbed wire, asking troops to let them in. In the video, women are heard saying: "Help us, the Taliban are coming."Also Read- Battlegrounds Mobile India esports kicks off with a prize of Rs 1 crore on July 19

Google once considered teaming up with Tencent to take over Epic Games

  • Aug 20, 2021
  • pitchhigh

When Epic publicly rejected Apple and Google's App Store terms and hit the "Sue All" button in 2020, it seemed like the battle was just beginning. Apparently though, the daggers had already been out for a while, and were as sharp as possible. Today we learned that a Google executive even proposed to resolve a dispute with Epic by reaching an agreement with Tencent to wrest control of the company from founder and CEO Tim Sweeney. Tencent, the Chinese group that owns Riot Games and parts of several other large developers, owns 40% of Epic Games, while Sweeney is the majority shareholder. According to a court document filed by Epic today, an anonymous Google executive once suggested that if Epic isn't playing well, Google should talk to Tencent about buying Epic stock "to gain more control" from the Fortnite developer, or even can do it working with Tencent to take over Epic entirely. "Google has realized that Epic may not accept its offer." As a "potential alternative," a senior Google executive suggested that Google "consider approaching Tencent," a company that has a minority stake in Epic, (i) buy Epic shares from Tencent to gain more control over Epic. or (ii) Join Tencent to buy 100% of Epic. The details come from a unredacted complaint Epic filed today in the US District Court in Northern California. Tencent was still hidden along with other details. But yesterday the court rejected the search giant's request to keep this information sealed, which is why the full document has now been made public. "It appears, sadly, that Google was indeed contemplating a coordinated, multinational hostile takeover attempt of Epic in response to Fortnite launching outside of Google Play," Sweeney wrote on Twitter. Epic's lawsuit against Google is very similar to the lawsuit filed by Apple, which was prosecuted earlier this year. Epic says Google's anti-competitive actions are "forcing app developers and consumers" to use the Google Play Store, which requires sales cut just like Apple's App Store.The big difference is that Apple's App Store is mandatory on iPhones, but for phones running Google's Android operating system, Epic had the option to launch Fortnite as a side-download app, which it did. According to the filing, Google feared that the Fortnite launcher, which later became the Epic Games Store, was a "contagion" that would alienate others from the Google Play Store. Epic presents Google as a scheme that tried to strike a special deal to prevent the Google Play Store from rejecting it, while at the same Tencent surprise everyone. The complaint also notes that Google made similar side agreements with other game publishers, including Activision Blizzard, to keep them on the Google Play Store, and describes the agreements Google made with phone manufacturers to prevent them from pre-installing non-Google stores, resulting in "exclusivity". Epic is seeking an injunction requiring Google to stop what Sweeney and his company consider anti-competitive measures. As in the case of Apple, Epic frames the lawsuit as a fight for software freedom and says Google has failed to deliver on its promise to maintain "an open and competitive Android ecosystem for all users and industry participants."Also Read- Afghan national team footballer Zaki Anwari dies in fall from US plane at Kabul airport

Taliban will never change, they treat women like zeroes: Former Afghanistan footballer Fanoos Basir

Fanoos Basir a former Afghan soccer player fled her country after the Taliban dramatically capturing the capital city Kabul in August 2021. Despite promises by Taliban representatives that the Women would have more freedom than the last time the Taliban ruled the country, the women of the country were skeptical and unsure of their future. Fanoos Basir, said that she does not believe in the Taliban and that the Islamist movement will not change its attitude towards women. The Taliban were toppled in the US-led invasion in 2001, but 20 years later they regained power again and were forced out a foreign military mission, prompting the evacuation of tens of thousands of vulnerable Afghans. The last flights departed on Monday. In 2010, Basir joined a fledgling national soccer team that trained in a dilapidated stadium and began participating in tournaments abroad. However, the national team was disbanded and a large group of players and current staff were evacuated in an Australian military plane. Khaleda Popal, a former captain of the women's national soccer team who now resides outside Denmark, had urged soccer players on the women's team to burn their certificates, jerseys and medals for fear of attack by the Taliban, who had prohibited sports for women during her previous regime. Fanoos Basir not only did this, but tried to flee the country with her ailing parents as many as 3 days after the Taliban captured Kabul that on August 15. After several unsuccessful attempts, Basir, with the help of the French embassy, escaped to France. "Of course, we didn't know the Taliban would come as quickly as they did. Everyone knows what they did 30 years ago. They consider women like zero. They say that everything will change, we will allow women to work but I believe these are all fake face of the Taliban that they are showing to the world. They will never change. They have the same mentality towards women," said Basir.Also Read- Afghan national team footballer Zaki Anwari dies in fall from US plane at Kabul airport"So personally, I thought I would never work as part of their NGO government because working with them means supporting them. I will never support them. I will never trust them." "They still kill people. They have the same ideas and the same attitude towards women. Even if they let us work, we should be accompanied by our brother or father. So, it's impossible." “I was working as a civil engineer and I worked with a lot of guys, so this is impossible for me. "They are fake and they are showing off to the world that they are good and have changed. But they never change." ‘Who are they to forgive us?’ "They talked about resuming all sports activities. But women's sport was not mentioned. How can they change? They say they are going to forgive us. Who are they to forgive us? They have killed so many people, it should be the other way around." She added. 'I don't want to talk to a woman' Recalling the horrible experience when she tried to flee the country from the Kabul airport, Fanoos Basir said that a representative for Taliban did not even speak to her when she asked for clarification. Basir said she saw people being shot when the Taliban warned people not to flee the country in chaotic days at the airport. "We tried a lot for 2 or 3 days (to escape). My mother was sick. I went to the airport, there was a big crowd and they were shooting a lot of people. I saw them shoot people in the head and legs. They were bleeding and they hit them with sticks. ”I covered my face with a burqa. When I approached them, I wanted to ask them a question, but a Taliban pushed me and said." No, I don't want to talk to a woman. He told me to leave to home ". she said Fanoos Basir blamed the United States for the return of the Taliban to Afghanistan. "If the United States wants to kick them out, they can do it in an hour or two. They don't want to do it. They have drones, they have satellites. How is it possible that they are fighting against the Taliban for 20 years and did nothing?" she said.Also Read- Neeraj Chopra vs Sumit Antil: Can two gold medallists clash at Paris Olympics 2024?

Interestingly, as the son of a JWO officer in the Indian Army, Antel competed against Olympic champion Neeraj Chopra in the able-bodied 3rd series of the Indian Grand Prix on March 5 at Patiala, where he finished seventh with a best throw of 66.43 meters. On Tuesday, Antel broke the previous world record of 62.88 meters, which is also set by him, five times a day. His last throw was a foul. His series read 66.95, 68.08, 65.27, 66.71, 68.55 and foul.Also Read- Shooter Avani Lekhara First Indian Woman To Win Gold At Paralympics"At the 2019 World Para-Athletics Championships, I settled for silver.

I'm glad I was able to finally come out with a good performance and inspire the upcoming generation." It was very hot and humid that day in Tokyo, but Antil never looked bothered. "During the pandemic, I got special permission from the Sports Authority of India to train at home. I was prepared for all conditions - hot and humid. I trained late at night and this paid off well," said Antel, who hails from Sonepat. The Haryana athlete now hopes that Paralympic gold will give him a job once he returns to India. "Currently, I am unemployed and I am doing full-time training but I hope to get a job after this. Let's see what happens when I return to India," he signed off.Also Read- US Open 2021: Naomi Osaka kicks off title defence with straight sets win over Marie Bouzkova

Cristiano Ronaldo becomes all-time highest goalscorer in international football with brace against Ireland

Cristiano Ronaldo missed a penalty but nevertheless broke the men's international scoring record before scoring the second goal as Portugal's 2-1 World Cup qualifying win over Ireland on Wednesday. Ronaldo scored his 110th goal in the 89th minute to move ahead of former Iran striker Ali Daei. Six minutes into stoppage time, Ronaldo scored the 111th goal in 180 games to break the hearts of the Irish after defender John Egan gave his nation the lead in the 45th minute. "I'm very happy, not only because I beat the record but for the special moments that we had," Ronaldo said. "Two goals at the end of the game is so tough, but I have to appreciate what the team did. We believed until the end." But Ronaldo, who has rejoined Manchester United, is still 76 goals behind the most productive international scorer in the game. Christine Sinclair 38 years old, scored her 187th goal for Canada last month at the Tokyo Olympics. Ronaldo's night was frustrating until the late heroics. His 15th-minute spot kick was well saved by goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu, who was just two years old when Ronaldo scored his first goal for Portugal as a skinny winger at European championship in 2004. Ronaldo's only title came with Portugal at Euro 2016. Although he was the top scorer at this year's Euro Cup with five goals in four games, his team's title defense ended in the round of 16. On that note, here are the best Twitter reactions after Ronaldo's historic goalscoring feat.

Pakistan national team coach Misbah-ul-Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis resigned from their positions with the national team on Monday due to citing bio-bubble fatigue The decision helps to raise the eyebrows, since there is only one month left for T20 World Cup. Misbah and Waqar had one year left on their contracts after being appointed in September 2019. Notably, on Monday Pakistan announced their squad for the T20 World Cup and home series against New Zealand and England. Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis reported their decisions to the PCB on Monday.Meanwhile, Pakistan has appointed former spinner Saqlain Mushtaq and former all-rounder Abdul Razzak as temporary coaches for New Zealand Series. The Black Caps team, currently in Bangladesh, will play 3 ODI and 5 T20I matches in September and October. The Pakistani team is scheduled to assemble for their training camp on September 8. The Pakistan Cricket Board has confirmed that the support staff for the T20 World Cup will be appointed in the near future.'Don't think I am in the right frame of mind for upcoming challenges'Misbah-ul-Haq, who had to be quarantined in the West Indies for an extended period after testing positive for Covid-19, admitted that the timing of his decision was not right but he had to take the call to spend time with his family. "The quarantine in Jamaica post the West Indies series provided me with an opportunity to reflect on the past 24 months as well as the schedule for international cricket ahead. Considering that I would have had to continue to spend considerable time away from my family and that too in a bio-secure environment, I have decided to step down from the role," Misbah said, as quoted by a PCB statement. "I understand that the timing may not be ideal, but I don't think I'm in the right frame of mind for the upcoming challenges and it makes sense for someone new to step in and take the side forward."Also Read- ICC T20 World Cup 2021 complete schedule: India to face Pakistan on October 24 Decided to step down together: Waqar YounisWaqar Younis said he decided to step down after Misbah communicated his decision to him. “After Misbah informed me of his decision and his future plans, it was easy for me to resign as we had walked into the roles together, we worked collectively as a pair and now also step down together. "Working with Pakistani bowlers, including young people, has been more satisfying because now they are started to show progress.

Jorginho missed a penalty when Italy draw 0-0 with Switzerland in a World Cup qualifier on Sunday September 5, a result that meant Roberto Mancini's side equaled the world record for consecutive undefeated international matches in a row. Italy is now undefeated in 36 consecutive games, equaling Brazil's record set between 1993 and 1996. The result could have been more positive if Jorginho had converted from the penalty spot in the 52nd minute after a foul by Domenico Berardi, but the Chelsea midfielder was thwarted by goalkeeper Yan Sommer. Italy had other opportunities to snatch the victory from them, but had to settle for a draw, which means they remain top of qualification Group C on 11 points from five games, four ahead of the second-placed Swiss, who have two matches in hand on the Azzurri.Also Read- Cristiano Ronaldo becomes all-time highest goalscorer in international football with brace against Ireland Mancini's team entered the game after a disappointing 1-1 draw with Bulgaria on Thursday, in their first match becoming European champions two months ago. But the visiting team did much better in the first half in Basel and should have taken the lead through good chances for Berardi and Lorenzo Insigne, both of whom were denied by Sommer. The best chance of the night came seven minutes of the second half after Ricardo Rodriguez trying to atone for being caught in possession, lunged in on Berardi to award a penalty. Jorginho, who missed his spot kick in in Italy's penalty shootout victory over England in the Euro 2020 final, stepped up but put his effort far to close to Sommer, who made an easy save.

LaLiga will not be weakened by Lionel Messi's exit, says ex-Real Madrid player Fernando Morientes

La Liga may be shorn of its biggest name in Lionel Messi who left FC Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain but former Real Madrid player Fernando Morientes feels the Spanish league would not be "weakened" by the exit of the Argentine maestro.Messi joined Paris Saint-Germain's club last month is not the only high-profile exit from La Liga. In the last five seasons, players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Sergio Ramos have left Real Madrid or Barcelona."La Liga throughout its history has lost players, just like any other league... It is nothing new. Cristiano left, Neymar left, Messi and Ramos have also left," Morientes, who is also the La Liga ambassador, said during a virtual media interaction."Footballers will eventually leave, but clubs will stay. La Liga doesn't sell itself through a single player. La Liga is never going to have a problem to sell itself as a competition"."La Liga has done a spectacular job attempting to attract the best players to make it as competitive as always been."Morientes said it's an opportunity for the Spanish clubs to prove themselves at the marquee Champions League.“I would like to see a Spanish final in fact, because there are many people who think that Messi's departure has weakened the league. We have to show that this is not the case.Also Read- Lionel Messi signs two-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain after leaving Barcelona"In the last 10-15 years, La Liga teams have always been very competitive in all European competitions. And I'm convinced this coming season the Spanish teams will demonstrate their true potential in this competition," said the former Spanish center-forward.The 45-year-old said it was the responsibility of the clubs to change, adapt and sign great players."La Liga will continue to be a really attractive league that will bring in new players and I'm sure there are great players who will want to play here," said Morientes, who played 183 games for Real Madrid between 1997 and 2005."The Spanish league is strong enough to be attractive to everyone. I am convinced that you in India will continue to follow the league and continue to follow our teams as fans and not just as individual players."On the prospect of 'El Clasico' without Messi and Ronaldo, he said: "Real Madrid and Barcelona at the end of the day are much more than just two players. It's true that both Cristiano and Messi have made history in Spanish football."Obviously we would like to have players of this level. But we must remember that the rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona goes back many years, and Messi and Ronaldo are not always at the club." Also Read- Cristiano Ronaldo becomes all-time highest goalscorer in international football with brace against Ireland

Taliban set to ban womens sports in Afghanistan, claims report

  • Sep 09, 2021
  • pitchhigh

The Taliban said on Wednesday (September 8) that Afghan women cannot participate in sports, including cricket because sports activities "would expose their bodies." Ahmadullah Wasiq, deputy director of the Taliban's cultural committee, told the media that sports activities were not necessary for women. Earlier this week, the Taliban decreed that only a woman teacher would teach female students but if that was not possible then ‘old men’ of good character could fill in. “I don't think women will be allowed to play cricket because it is not necessary that women should play cricket. In cricket, they might face a situation where their face and body will not be covered. Islam does not allow women to be seen like this. It is the media era, and there will be photos and videos, and then people watch it. Islam and the Islamic Emirate do not allow women to play cricket or play the kind of sports where they get exposed,” said Ahmadullah Wasiq, the deputy head of the Taliban's cultural commission, in an interview. In November 2020, the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) awarded contracts to 25 female cricketers. It also held a 21-day training camp for 40 female cricketers in Kabul. The International Cricket Council (ICC) requires its twelve members to have a women's national team and only full members of the ICC are permitted to play Test matches.Also Read- Afghan national team footballer Zaki Anwari dies in fall from US plane at Kabul airport When asked if no women’s cricket would mean ICC calling off the Hobart Test, Wasiq said the Taliban would not compromise. “Even for this, if we face challenges and problems, we have fought for our religion so that Islam is to be followed. We will not cross Islamic values even if it carries opposite reactions. We will not leave our Islamic rules.”Cricket Australia threaten to cancel Hobart Test against Afghanistan Meanwhile, Cricket Australia said it would not host Afghanistan for its first historic Test at Hobart if media reports about the women's team without the support of the Taliban are true. "Driving the growth of women's cricket is extremely important to Cricket Australia. Our vision for cricket is that it is a sport for all and we support the game unequivocally for women at every level," Cricket Australia statement on Thursday September 9. An update on the proposed Test match against Afghanistan pic.twitter.com/p2q5LOJMlw— Cricket Australia (@CricketAus) September 9, 2021"If recent media reports that women's cricket will not be supported in Afghanistan are substantiated, Cricket Australia would have no alternative but to not host Afghanistan for the proposed Test match due to be played in Hobart," the statement added.Also Read- Taliban will never change, they treat women like zeroes: Former Afghanistan footballer Fanoos Basir

Lionel Messi surpasses Pele's goalscoring record, leads Argentina to win in World Cup qualifiers

Lionel Messi broke Brazil great Pele's South American goal scoring record with a hat-trick that helped Argentina beat Bolivia 3-0 in the World Cup qualifiers on Thursday. Messi became the best scorer in South American football history The 34-year-old scored 79 goals for Argentina, overtaking Pele's tally of 77. The Argentine captain opened the way for his team at the Monumental Stadium in Buenos Aires in front of 20,000 lucky fans in the 14th minute. He moved the ball between the legs of a Bolivian defender and shot from outside the penalty area to the right of the goalkeeper Carlos Lampe. Once again he showed his technique to score the second in the 64th minute. Messi and forward Lautaro Martinez exchanged four quick passes to put the six-time Ballon D'Or winner in a magnificent position. He still had time to dribble past one defender before scoring. Messi completed his hat-trick in the 88th minute from close range after getting a rebound from Lampe. Also Read- LaLiga will not be weakened by Lionel Messi's exit, says ex-Real Madrid player Fernando MorientesArgentina now have 18 points in second place. Bolivia remains in ninth place with six. Brazil and Argentina will have one less competitive match after this international window since the Super Classic was suspended on Sunday. FIFA has yet to decide what will happen will the match, as it was stopped in a shocking way after Brazilian health officials tried to remove four Argentinian players for allegedly providing false information to authorities. The top four teams from the South American qualifiers earn direct spots in the World Cup finals in Qatar next year, and the fifth-place team will go into an intercontinental playoff. Previously, Uruguay beat Ecuador by 1-0 to move to third place in the table. Uruguay managed to get a last-minute home win against Ecuador, which was key to their hopes of qualifying for the World Cup. The header by Gaston Pereiro in stoppage time allowed Uruguay to add 15 points and take Ecuador third on the table. The Ecuadorians still with 13 points, are in fourth place and they are also well positioned to go to Qatar next year. Colombia also clinched an important 3-1 home win over Chile in a magnificent performance from forward Miguel Borja. He scored the first from the spot in the 19th minute and added another one minute later. Chile reduced the gap in the 56th minute with Jean Menezes, but Luis Diaz added Colombia's last goal in the 74th minute. Also on Thursday, Paraguay beat Venezuela 2-1. The hosts scored with David Martínez and Alejandro Romero in the 7th and 46th minutes. The visitors scored their only goal in the 90th minute with John Chancellor. He posted on social media after the game: "I dreamed a lot about this day and thank God it came. "I have no words to thank you for all the love received. What a beautiful night, I really enjoyed it. Unforgettable."View this post on InstagramA post shared by Leo Messi (@leomessi)Also Read- Lionel Messi signs two-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain after leaving BarcelonaAlso Read- Cristiano Ronaldo becomes all-time highest goalscorer in international football with brace against Ireland

A match from the end of his bid for what would have been the calendar's first Grand Slam tournament in men's tennis since 1969, Novak Djokovic covered his face with a towel, hiding his tears during the changeover.In 27 Grand Slam matches in 2021, on hard courts, clay courts and grass, Djokovic is unbeatable. Needing one more victory, in Sunday's US Open final against Daniil Medvedev, to complete a season sweep for major titles and claim his 21st career record, Djokovic couldn't pull it off.Outplayed by someone using a similar style to his own, Djokovic came up just short of those two historic milestones, losing 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 to first-time major champion Medvedev at Arthur Ashe Stadium.Also Read- Novak Djokovic outlives Stefanos Tsitsipas at French Open to win nineteenth majorA simply stunning performance from @DaniilMedwed pic.twitter.com/0sF1r2CiNg— US Open Tennis (@usopen) September 12, 2021No.1 ranked Djokovic had been sublime in the sport's top four tournaments, enduring the burdens of expectations and pressure for the past seven months and, in New York, the past two weeks. He beat Medvedev in the Australian Open final in February, then added titles at the French Open in June and Wimbledon in July.He made mistakes, 38 inadvertent mistakes in all. He couldn't convert the chance of a break until it was too small, too late, going just 1 for 6. He also showed frustration, destroying his racket by hitting it three times against the court after one point, drawing boos from the crowd of 25,703 and a code violation from chair umpire Damien Dumusois. List of players to defeat Novak Djokovic in a Grand Slam in 2021:Daniil Medvedev-end of list-— US Open Tennis (@usopen) September 12, 2021Much of Djokovic's troubles had to do with No. 2 ranked Medvedev, who used his 6-foot-6(1.98meter) frame to chase everything and respond with seemingly effortless groundstrokes, in the same way. that Djokovic wears down foes, and delivered pinpoint serving. Medvedev won 20 of his first 23 service points, forming a pattern. He finished with 16 aces and 38 winners in total, 11 wins more than Djokovic. After overcoming several double faults at match point, Medvedev finally finished the job, then toppled over to the court on his side. Djokovic reached the 31st Grand Slam final, equaling the record of six victories on the hard court at Flushing Meadows. But he couldn't get the last thing he needed. He remains tied with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal with 20 major titles. And the last man to complete a true Grand Slam going 4-4 at the majors in a single season remains Rod Laver, who did it twice, in 1962 and 1969, and was in the stands on Sunday. The last woman to achieve this feat was Steffi Graf in 1988. Instead, Djokovic joined Jack Crawford in 1933 and Lew Hoad in 1956 as men who won the first three Grand Slam tournaments over a year and reached the U.S. Open final before losing. Djokovic came out a bit cold Sunday, double faulted in each of his first two service games and mixed enough groundstroke fouls bowing his head or rolling his eyes after some that 12 minutes, Medvedev was a point from a second break and a 3-0 lead. Djokovic eventually used a couple of aces at 117 mph and 124 mph to hold there, but it was Medvedev who stole the show in the early going. It was the fifth consecutive match in which Djokovic lost the first set, and 11th in Grand Slam play this year, but unlike other cases, he was unable to win again. This moment though pic.twitter.com/dgvqLMpdBv— US Open Tennis (@usopen) September 12, 2021Djokovic got to love-40 in Medvedev’s first service game of the second set but did not come through on any of those break points. On the third, Djokovic put a sliced backhand in the net, then pounded his racket against his left thigh — one, two, three, four times, perhaps as disappointed in his footwork as anything. Thousands of fans tried to reinforce him by chanting his nickname "No-Le! No-Le! No-Le!" After some of Medvedev's mistakes, some in the stands would applaud, considered poor form in tennis and repeatedly admonished with a “please” from Dumusois.Also Read- Taliban set to ban womens sports in Afghanistan, claims report

WWE Raw Results, Winners and Highlights: Big E's long journey to the top of the mountain reached its destination by winning the WWE title. This was after he cashed his Money in the Bank contract and defeated Bobby Lashley to close out Raw on Monday night. Removing the element of surprise, Big E announced hours before RAW went air that he intended to cash in the contract and he did! In the main event between Lashley and Orton, it was All-Mighty who sent Viper out with a spear. However, when Lashley (kayfabe) tweaked his knee after delivering a spinebuster to Orton through a table, it gave an opening for the 5′ 11-inch heavyweight who was looking for an opportune moment. With the show approaching into a commercial break, before the match became official, WWE returned with Big E defeating a hobbling Lashley with a Big Ending. Lashley did give a fight as he was on the verge of defending his gold when he countered out of the Big Ending. But Big E's second attempt at Big Ending was correct in terms of money and with that, Raw had a new champion.Also Read- Undertaker WWE Retirement: WWE announces The Undertaker retirement, fans get emotionalAs one of WWE's most beloved Superstars, the Big E moment unleashed the WWE Universe with congratulations on social media.

Lionel Messi failed to provide Paris St Germain with any sparkle as the Ligue 1 team's potent attacking trio lacked inspiration in a disappointing 1-1 draw at Club Brugge in their Champions League opener on Wednesday.In his debut with the French team, the Argentine forward managed to surpass him, but he was far from his brilliant best next to the disappointing Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, who set up Ander Herrera for PSG's first-half opener before being replaced injured after the break.Brugge, who levelled before halftime through Hans Vanaken, were more powerful and had the best chances against a PSG that lacks quality and defensive focus.The result left Paris Saint-Germain and Bruges two points behind Group A leaders Manchester City after the Premier League champions crushed RB Leipzig 6-3."We didn't play a fantastic game but to be fair we did enough to win, we deserved to win," said Herrera."Maybe they had opportunities at the beginning of the second half but I think we controlled the match, we had a lot of chances."Also Read- Lionel Messi surpasses Pele's goalscoring record, leads Argentina to win in World Cup qualifiersBrugge keeper Simon Mignolet disagreed."I didn't have a lot of work, I just pulled a couple of saves.

Legendary Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar has asked the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to groom KL Rahul to be India's next captain.Gavaskar wants to appoint KL Rahul as T20 vice-captain for India, with Rohit Sharma appointed as captain after Virat Kohli decided to leave the captaincy after the T20 World Cup.“It's a good thing that the BCCI is looking ahead. It's important to think ahead,” said Sunil Gavaskar“If India are looking to groom a new captain, then KL Rahul can be looked at. He has performed well. Even now in England, his batting was very good. He has been performing well in IPL and 50-overs cricket as well at the international stage. He can be made vice-captain,” said Gavaskar.Gavaskar praised Karnataka's batsman for his quality of leadership shown in the IPL. Rahul is the captain of Punjab Kings in the IPL.Also Read- Virat Kohli to step down as India T20 captain after World Cup“He has shown very impressive leadership qualities in the IPL. He hasn’t let the burden of captaincy affect his batting. His name can be taken into consideration,” said Gavaskar.The 34-year-old Rohit is Kohli's deputy in the white ball formats and is likely to take the lead role when India meets New Zealand in a home series in November that will feature three T20 Internationals along with two Test matches.Current head coach Ravi Shastri and the tenure of the support staff are coming to an end with the T20 World Cup and as things stand, there are indications that they won't seek an extension.“There is a CAC that will make the decision. If you want to think about the new coach, then you can’t keep talking to the captain. Yes, there needs to be an understanding between the captain and the coach. But you can’t ask a student who his principal or professor can be,” said Gavaskar.Also Read- ICC mens T20I rankings: Indian captain Virat Kohli moves to No 4, KL Rahul retains sixth spot

IPL 2021, PBKS vs RR: Battle for survival between Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals

On paper, Punjab Kings and the Rajasthan Royals have more than a few things in common in the second leg of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Both affected by the withdrawal of players and locked at six points each, the two teams will look to revive their falling campaign during their clash at Dubai International Stadium on Tuesday.Wicketkeeper captains KL Rahul and Sanju Samson comfortably sit among the top six scorers of the tournament, but their individual efforts have left no impact on their team's performances so far.With the odds stacked against them in their 14th attempt to lift the elusive trophy, Punjab Kings will hope for their coach Anil Kumble and the leadership group to get their campaign back on track.Also Read- Virat Kohli to quit RCB captaincy after the end of IPL 2021 seasonDuring his playing career, Kumble had back India from the clutches of defeat on numerous occasions. With the former India captain name doing the rounds for a second stint as head coach of the national team once Ravi Shastri completes his tenure after the T20 World Cup, the legendary leg-spinner will look to prove his mettle as a franchise coach.Before his fallout with Virat Kohli, Kumble had coached India to the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy final. However, his brief tenure as coach of the Punjab Kings has yet to produce the desired results. The Mohali-based franchise finished sixth in 2020 and is currently at the same spot midway into the IPL 2021 season.Tuesday's competition will be more about what kinds of starts can be made by the top order players on both sides. As for the Kings, Rahul and Mayank are expected to open with Chris Gale providing just the right momentum to their innings at No.3.Prabhsimran Singh is another exciting prospect at the top of the order in case he gets into the XI. The middle order will be manned by Mandeep Singh, M Shahrukh Khan and a toss-up between new recruit Aiden Markram and West Indian Nicholas Pooran, eager to get over a nightmarish first phase, where he got four ducks.Leg-spin remains Punjab's forte and the addition of experienced campaigner Adil Rashid, alongside the India pair of Ravi Bishnoi and Murugan Ashwin, could come in handy in UAE conditions. The withdrawals of Riley Meredith and Jhye Richardson means Mohammed Shami is set to be partnered by either Chris Jordan or Nathan Ellis. Left-armer Arshdeep Singh's improved death bowling will also strengthen his case.Similarly for the Rajasthan, a lot will depend on the start provided by power-hitters Liam Livingston and Evin Lewis. Coming to the IPL after some sensational performances in "The Hundred" for Birmingham Phoenix, Livingston will be excited to stretch his run, while at the same time his skills will be tested against a high-quality leg-spin.Weakened by the withdrawal of Ben Stokes, Joss Butler and Jofra Archer, Rajasthan hope that their Indian Players like Rahul Tewatia, Riyan Parag, Jaydev Unadkat and Chetan Sakariya to turn the tide.Also Read- Pakistan vs New Zealand: Entire tour called off due to security concerns minutes before 1st ODI
