"I got mad because it was not nice, and it was done on purpose. Some of the spectators, they were just into the match and you could feel it.

Both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have produced some unforgettable moments on the football pitch and surprisingly they have been doing that consistently for more than 15 years now. The duo have won a combined total of 11 Ballon d'Or's, which is an award of high prestige, while numerous star footballers have missed out on the prestigious award because of the domination from Messi and Ronaldo. Interestingly, year 2021 has proved out to be full of surprises for both the footballing greats. Lionel Messi has left FC Barcelona and now plays for Paris Saint-Germain due to Barcelona's financial problems. The 33-year-old Argentine is currently struggling in his new club with injuries coming into play and a change of role in terms of positioning.

However, Messi is yet to score a league goal for PSG, but has scored 3 goals for the French club in the Champions League. Messi won 34 club career trophies with FC Barcelona, including 10 La Liga titles and 4 Champions League titles. In addition, he has won the Ballon d'Or for a record six times which is the most by any player ever to play football. On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo once again impressed with his return to Manchester United new now, as the striker has time and again saved the Red Devils' blushes by scoring crucial goals.

In the process, he even became the top scorer in three different big leagues England, Spain and Italy, thus creating a new record. Christian Ronaldo scored 29 goals for Juventus in Serie A and also become Portugal's top scorer with 111 goals for his country in 2021. The rivalry between these two can define a whole era and decade of football. Who's better? It's an endless debate with too many opinions from too many people but one thing is for sure that Ronaldo and Messi will go down as two of the greatest footballers that the world has ever witnessed.Also Read- Rohit Sharma named India T20I captain for New Zealand series

India vs New Zealand, 2nd T20I: India Look To Keep Winning Combination In Ranchi

India Look To Keep Winning Combination In RanchiIndia concludes its recent disappointment at the 2021 T20 World Cup with a five-wicket victory over New Zealand in the T20I series at Jaipur. The Indian team, led by Rohit Sharma, led Rahul Dravid to victory in his first match as a new senior coach. However, the think tank may not have thought much about his victory as it took time to correct the goals of the 165 races set by the visitors. For the second game, the team manager may consider joining the same group to win the series before making any changes to Game XI before the final.Kuala Lumpur Raffle: The newly appointed T20I Deputy Captain is looking forward to a modest lead in the first game, scoring only 15 times from 14 balls. Rahul looked good on the patch, but he couldn't move forward and turned his back in an attempt to catch Mitchell Santner.Rohit Sharma: The captain drove head-on, showed various shots and then dropped a single score of 48 points. Winning as captain gives Rohit new confidence in the rest of the match.Suryakumar Yadav: Suryakumar went out on the field with a positive intention and did nothing for the player in his amazing 62 game strike with a hit rate of over 150.Rishabh Pant: Wicket-keeper Pant showed a great application and played in a good position when Daryl Mitchell hit the out-of-bounds in the final round of the match and pushed the team to the goal line.Shreyas Iyer: Iyer's return to the team was unforgettable after being removed from the Indian team at the T20 World Cup in the UAE and Oman. Ayer looked weak during an eight-ball stint in the penalty area and missed the ball along the way. At that time, management expected him to drive the team home with his pants.Venkatesh Iyer: All-terrain rookie Venkatesh Iyer didn't have the opportunity to play the ball, but he started his football career with an international cricket with four great people. However, he would be disappointed not to end the game because he was the victim of the reverse sweep of Mitchell's delivery.Axar Patel: Axar tries to win more in the game at Ranchi without losing a small gate in the opening match. He allowed 31 runs with 4 overs and he faced only one ball while chasing India.Ravichandran Ashwin: Ashwin was late in the wicket line, but he certainly had an impact when he got two wickets with two decent numbers of 23. The two wickets helped reduce New Zealand's culling rate.Bovneshwar Kumar: The form of Bovneshwar in the first match was very positive for the Indian national team. He seemed to be in full control as he shook the ball in both directions to catch two wickets in a six economy.Deepak Shahar: Shahar wants to improve the economy by giving more than 40 points in the first match. He threw the ball into the right area, but often lost control of his streak and handed many poor deliveries to New Zealand batters.Mohamed Siraj: Siraj looked like someone who came from a break after the IPL. His improvements can only be expected in the next match of the series. He made a small cut with 4 overs giving 39 rounds.For read daily article and know about sports news to visit here - Pitchhigh

Mumbai: With time running out and India's various plans to travel to South Africa, BCCI now has no choice but to sit at a table with Cricket South Africa (CSA) and reschedule the series.BCCI is still trying to see if the three test matches can be reduced to two, giving the Indian team more time before flying. Any calls to this effect will likely be answered within the next 48 hours.The Indian cricketer remains unconvinced by the tour yet to play three Tests, three One-Day Internationals, and four T20Is. Arriving in Mumbai to play the second Test against New Zealand and knowing that the vital bubble is immediately expected to enter, players have many questions and no answers.Team members recently raised a series of questions as news began arriving over the past two weeks of a very rapid switch to a news release in countries such as South Africa and Botswana.

TOI understands that BCCI has accepted the idea of answering these questions in the form of questions and answers, which has not yet happened.“Until the players get a response from the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry, there will be confusion because no one knows anything. But if you look at the statement from a ministerial department in the South African government, it emphasizes the security operation. Thanks to BCCI that the two countries share a deep bond. It's his way of saying, "Come on and we'll take care of it. The ball is in the court of the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry now.”For the record, the South Australian Department of International Relations wrote to the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry this week.Those in the know say the BCCI is confident in the tour and the fact that it can be done within a strict biological bubble, especially with the guarantees the South African government and the CSA have made in favor of the setup. However, the Indian Board of Directors has yet to consider the possible renegotiation and rescheduling as it is short on time.Despite the CSA's guarantee, BCCI will also have to make efforts to explain security protocols to players and this can only happen through conversations.“There is no sign of talks yet. Officials are busy preparing for the general assembly meeting in Kolkata on December 4. There is also a meeting of the IPL board of directors. Where is the time? Now they should be in an active mode now. It has been,” the sources said.From Wednesday, the Indian team will be busy with the second Test in Mumbai and again it takes time to sit at the table with the players and talk about it.

SA Vs IND, 1st Test: India Beat South Africa To Create History

In the end, there was no raucous celebration, no wild punches, and no moving screams as the Indian team crushed Fort Centurion on just 12 balls in Thursday's second session. It looks like the world's number one test team is now accustomed to wearing the look of excellence away from home.Instead, it was gratifying to see winning sprinter Jaspreet Bumrah run into Virat Kohli's style and pat him on the back. Kohli responded, as she usually does, with a dismissive smile, her way of showing hard-to-get pride.SCORECARD | AS IT HAPPENEDProgress is measured by milestones, and Thursday's 113-race victory over South Africa in the first round is a huge step forward. India's first test win in this stronghold for the home team (South Africa has now the year began with a Raising Voices Revolution victory, another victory at Gabba in Brisbane, and a three-hole victory at Ft. India has the only other example of winning four events outside of Asia in a calendar year, as in 2018, after victories at Lord's, The Oval and now Centurion. "It's always a difficult place to play and we have to be precise," Kohli said.st, only three of the 27 Tests here, and have never lost to an Asian team before) is a sure sign that Virat Kohli-il's team are poor travelers. Keep traditional beliefsIt's a cycle that started off the shores of South Africa in 2018 and took the team's rapid battery development into a well-tuned lethal machine full circle. India has yearned for such amazing wealth for generations. They are clearly in a hurry now to make adjustments.Bhumrha, Mohamed El Shami (8/107 per match), and Mohamed Siraj are three unique examples of India's fast bowling art. Bumrah, Twisted, Apprentice, Whip, Biomechanics nightmare, can use folding and the ball will move at high speed. He can magically work as he did with India before the wicket lunch for Dean Elgar on the last day of a tough phase of the match, sending van der Dussen off the day before.Elgar (77 of 156 balls; 12 x 4) made a positive start and with South Africa advancing, there were moments of doubt. Was the second entry into India sufficient? Why did the court not act as it did on the fourth day? Enter the Bumrah and the infamous Centurion Rift. Bowling ball low and fast, and Elgar went too far and lost his sight. With this lbw, the South African resistance evaporated.Bhumrha was the first to successfully transfer his skills from short formats to the test arena and pave the way for the likes of Siraj. “We talked about it in the locker room. He didn’t throw Bumrah too much in the first rounds (he twisted his ankle), it allowed the SA to get 40 again. We had a lot of confidence in our bowlers to get the job done,” Kohli said. Indian Cricket Over the past 4-5 years, the bowling unit has played an important role. The way these people play together, our team is in difficult situations,” Kohli said.Then there is Shami, according to Kohli "among the top three bowlers in the world". It's impossible to judge Shami when she's at her climax. “For me, he is one of the top three fast shooters in the world right now,” Kohli said. "His strong wrists, his put-together, his ability to beat lengthwise consistently... He's totally world-class." Shammy, who had already kicked Elgar out of his bowling alley, fixed it by shooting Mulder and Jensen in a late stitching position.India can win easily despite being tired out all day, and that is something they will appreciate. In terms of game and surface nature, KL Rahul's first roles turned out to be the deciding factor, as Dean Elgar acknowledged. Here again, it was the difference between the two fast attacks that came to the fore. India's fast bowling has ensured that South Africa is eliminated under 200 for only the third time in each half since they entered international cricket. Meanwhile, Rabada, Ngidi, and Mulder were inconsistent that first morning and were guilty of not getting the hitters to play enough on a quiet surface.Also, Read -  Sports Calendar 2022 | World Sporting Event Calendar

AndPlaying shots in the middle of suspended sums is not easy.NOT AN EASY WICKET TO PLAY SHOTS IN MIDDLE OVERS“We got off to a good start and I think the wicket was slow, and it was also taking a little turn. So when you're chasing (almost) 300 rounds, when the middle rank comes in the at-bat, it's not an easy thing to play.”. shooting.“Our pendulums fell into piles and it affected us like a beating unit,” Dhawan said.Dhawan also paid tribute to South African pair Temba Pavuma (110 out of 143) and Rasi van der Dousen (129 out of 96) for their remarkable horns, which paved the way for victory.When asked about the turning point in the match, he said, "I think my two South African rackets hit really well and took the turns very deeply."YOUNGER BATTERS NEED TO MOULD GAME AS PER DEMANDS Dhawan believes that dealing with different match situations comes with experience and the likes of Rishabh Pant, Iyers - Shreyas, and Venkatesh will understand better as they play more games.“It (the discussion) that we have to play according to the situation and what the situation requires, putting the team ahead and the individual's game is important.The left-hander was asked again how the middle-ranking problems could be fixed, and he replied: "Look at our thought process as a unit or a team we're building our team for the 2023 World Cup, so there are going to be some hiccups. Here and there, which is good and we as a team, we analyze How can we improve?ROHIT'S ABSENCE IS A FACTORDhawan believes the team will be stronger after the return of white-ball captain Rohit Sharma and the middle-ranking will also perform cricket better."And I think we all have good clarity now because we have this group of groups and they are going to be there and how they can be improved.“There is no Rohit (Sharma) now, as soon as he comes back an experienced player will come and the middle-ranking (Rahul goes down) will be strong. So the youngsters who have chances will benefit from this experience. We are looking at the big picture.”

The story of Kuldeep Yadav's return is increasing day by day. He was only able to pick up five wickets in 14 games for the Kolkata Knight Riders in 2019 and 2020 before setting off the bench for good in 2021. In the two games he's played against KKR this season, Kuldeep now has eight wickets in his bag alone. On Thursday night, he took 4/14 reserve 4/35 in the previous game.When he broke the KKR draw for the second time this season, he offered Team Delhi Capitals a comeback in the competition by restricting KKR to 146/9. His spell set up the game for a tense assortment of hits in the capitals to chase the target with six balls and four wickets to spare.The undefeated Ruffman Powell 16-ball 33 calmed nerves on the Capitals bench when David Warner knocked off 26-ball 42 and captain Rishabh Pant 2 for 84/5 on 12. The KKR's freefall under new captain Shreyas Iyer isn't over.Kuldeep publicly expressed the confidence Rishabh Pant put in him during the tournament. He delivered it back at Wankhede Stadium. After Mustafa Rahman, Chetan Sakarya, Aksar Patel, and Chardol Thakur choked each other out in a power game, Kuldeep claimed a share of IPL starters Baba Inderjit and Sunil Naren in the second and third balls. Spell to reduce KKR to 4/35.Kuldeep Yadav has picked up his fourth wicket and Andre Russell goes for a duck.Just as Iyer seemed to gain some momentum with his 42 for 37, Pant miraculously caught a shot from Kuldeep. The dangerous Kuldeep tricked Andre Russell three balls later and stopped him for a duck. The pitch looked double-paced and Coldip's bluff was too much for the KKR's hitting lineup, which was 83/6 on the 14th.Despite all the talk about Pant's faith in Kuldeep, he hasn't let Kuldeep complete his full quota of four sums. Perhaps the KKR had a window to break out, and Nitish Rana replaced Lalit Yadav with an 18 in 17 runs to add some momentum to the roles. Rana seemed to be the only stable thing in the chaotic KKR arena that cut and replaced their eleventh game in a big way. The team does not match the team that started within the tournament.With his calm head and clear vision, he threatened to inflict great damage on the people of the capital with 57 out of 34 balls. During his 34-ball 62 trade partnership with Rinku Singh on the seventh wicket, Rana was exposing the weak points of the capitals. Bowling of Death Mustafizur played his magic in the final, conceding just two runs and catching three wickets, finishing four overs at 3/18 numbers, and making sure KKR didn't get away with the game.Read More - Who is Richest Cricketers in the World | PITCHHIGH

"He will bring," Bafoma said.For South Africa, Miller's bats were ranked sixth, but Pafuma indicated that the left-handed could advance.“The talk has always been about David upgrading the standings and letting him take on a lot of balls and be more devastating. He knows his place in our team and his role in the team. He has… played a little bit. OK. But if there is a chance to deliver more. From the shipments to David, I'm sure this will be something that will be looked at."Quinton de Kock is another South African who performed excellently in the IPL and will now appear in the upcoming T20I series.

Rishabh Pant to Lead India Against South Africa

New Delhi: Rishabh Pant's journey in international cricket was as unexpected as his beating. He has always risen through the ranks while facing criticism for his extravagant play. Although doubts remain over his persistence, Bant became the youngest Indian captain in T20I as KL Rahul was disqualified from the T20I series against South Africa due to a back injury on Wednesday.Calm and relaxed man, Pant showed off an intense look during alternate training at Firuzach Kotla on Wednesday, the day before the first T20I against South Africa. Working with match officials and fielding drills in the scorching sun, Pant was preparing for his big day. As he walked off the field and headed to the pre-match press conference, he said, “I am very happy this happened in Kotla. I wish Mr. Tarak (his childhood coach who passed away last November) had had this. We were there to see the moment.”Pant's career really took off after the pandemic. They have spent most of the past two years riding the biosecurity bubble. When India's bubble ban was lifted, he took a leave of absence on Wednesday morning to visit his graduate Venkateswara College in south Delhi, where he had honed his skills in the sonnets club as a teenager. A few hours later he was informed that he would be the captain of the Indian team for the series."It feels great, even though it didn't come in good condition. The news came only an hour ago, so I'm addressing that too. I really want to thank the people who have been with me through thick and thin," Pant said, addressing the media. It is so."Although he replaced regular captain Rohit Sharma, Bant's rise comes at a time when Dinesh Karthik is forcing another revival. One might remember Pant losing to Karthik initially in the 2019 World Cup Finals. Set to be the T20 World Cup five months from now, Karthik pushes her to the same spot again.If Pant feels secure about his place on the T20 side, it's time. Head coach Rahul Dravid has focused on building a core team for the future. With Pant as captain and IPL-winning captain Hardik Pandya as backup, the message is that management is ready to continue investing in Pant.|This was evident as Dravid was seen spending a lot of time with Pant while discussing game plans during team training over the past two days.“It’s the best thing to have (Dravid) around. I worked with him during his under-19 days, with India and the IPL as well. So, there is a lot of experience there. There is a lot to learn from him, like how to act on the pitch, discipline, and game strategy.”Pant doesn't walk here like a rookie captain. He's had the best and worst response in the past two years as captain of the Delhi Capitals. He said, "Captain DC will help me a lot." I am the one who learns from mistakes. He said, "When you keep doing the same thing over time, you get better and keep learning from it, and I think this will help me. I'm going to lift my chin and do my best."You know it's full now. But he is aware of the team's big goals in the World Cup. The very cautious T20 hit has been banned in India for some time now. Pant promised that the change would be visible."As a team, we have thought about some of the goals that we want to achieve as a team. We are constantly working towards them. We are thinking about the World Cup. In the next few days, there will be a lot of changes." pant claimed.When his first pressure as India captain was over, he moved into the center draw and engaged in long sessions of relentless hard-hitting.

Former India national team player Virender Siwaj feels current captain Rohit Sharma could be relieved of the duties of captain of the T20 team so that the 35-year-old can better manage his workload.Rohit has not been able to appear in all India matches since taking over as captain due to injuries and workload management. "If the Indian team management has someone else in mind as a leader in the T20 format, I think Rohit (Sharma) can be relieved and the following can be taken into consideration in the future," Sehwag told PTI in an interview.“One, it would allow Rohit to manage his workload and mental fatigue, given his age.“Secondly, once a new person is appointed as captain of the T20s, it will also allow Rohit to take breaks and rejuvenate to lead India in both Tests and ODIs,” he said in an interaction arranged by the Sony Sports announcer.

England series.However, Sehwag emphasized that if the team management maintains its current policy of having a single leader to lead India in all three formats, Sharma remains an ideal choice."If the Indian think tank still wants to continue with the same policy, which is to allow one man to lead India in all three forms, then I still think Rohit Sharma is the best man for that." While there have been plenty of permutations and combinations at the moment ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year, the former Indian has claimed that his top three choices among batsmen for the tournament will be Rohit Sharma, Ishaan Kishan, and KL.
