At Lucknow’s Ekana Stadium, KL Rahul suffered an injury six months ago that necessitated surgery and sidelined him for a considerable amount of international cricket. Now that he was back as a regular member of the Indian team, Rahul could afford to laugh it off, albeit a little too sardonically. Rahul made a joke at the pre-match news conference on the eve of India’s match against England, saying, “I am trying to forget; you are reminding me again and again.” “I can’t claim that it has left my thoughts. All I could remember from when I initially woke up here…

Probing spells from Tabraiz Shamsi (4-60) and Marco Jansen (3-43) prevented Pakistan from posting a daunting total in their World Cup fixture against South Africa in Chennai on Friday (October 27). Most of the Pakistan batters got starts – skipper Babar Azam and Saud Shakeel produced fifties – but none of them batted deep enough to make a significant impact on the innings. Shamsi and Jansen led South Africa’s quest of wickets and strikes at regular intervals meant that Pakistan, who got to 270, could never really break free except in one or two rare passages of play. When Pakistan chose to…

On Thursday, October 26, in Bangalore, Sri Lanka upset England by eight wickets, bringing the World Cup to yet another surprising conclusion. Even though the overwhelming outcome wasn’t totally anticipated, it was a sort of role reversal as the defending champions suffered a crushing defeat for the fourth time in the competition, endangering their hopes of winning the championship. Technically speaking, this is not an upset because Sri Lanka had won the previous four rounds of this competition. After opting to bat, England collapsed to a pitiful 156 before the game’s halfway mark. All Sri Lanka had to do afterward…

With a devastating performance, Namibia stunned Zimbabwe at the inaugural Twenty20 International held in Windhoek. The captain Craig Ervine and Nick Welch both went for ducks, leaving Zimbabwe in a vulnerable position at 2/2 and laying the groundwork for a disastrous batting opening stand. Zimbabwe was unable to recover from the blow, and 2/2 soon became 22/4. After the bleeding was temporarily stopped by a 39-run partnership between Sikandar Raza and Wessly Madhavere, Namibia started to capture plenty of wickets once more. Raza led the squad in scoring with 39, but Luke Jongwe 22 helped the opposite team win 121/9,…

The International Cricket Council sent a news release stating, “Mathews, who has played 221 ODIs, was named as a replacement after Pathirana failed to recover from a shoulder injury sustained during a warm-up match and was subsequently ruled out of the tournament.” The news is somewhat of a boost for Sri Lanka, who are currently positioned ninth in the standings and have lost three of their past four games. After being called up to the team as a travelling reserve, Mathews…

On Tuesday, October 24, in Mumbai, South Africa easily defeated Bangladesh by 149 runs, demonstrating once more the value of their formidable batting arsenal. Quinton de Kock’s third World Cup century, Heinrich Klaasen’s excellent fifties, and stand-in captain Aiden Markram’s fifty runs were among the highlights of South Africa’s impressive batting exhibition total. Bangladesh never really got going in the chase, and the game was all but gone before it was called, much like the South Africa vs. England encounter. Under the lights at the Wankhede, with Bangladesh at 42/4 in the twelfth over, the Proteas pacers effectively ended the…

New Zealand scored 273 in their World Cup 2023 opener against India in Dharamsala, due to a career-high 130 from Daryl Mitchell and a 159-run partnership with Rachin Ravindra (75) at the third wicket. The late push, spearheaded by Mitchell and Ravindra, enabled New Zealand recover from a precarious 19/2 deficit. Nevertheless, with Mohammed Shami’s 5-54 leading the way in wicket-taking, the hosts amazingly rallied in the end. After being put to bat, Mohammed Siraj and Shami’s early strikes in a superb PowerPlay upfront caused early concerns for New Zealand. Devon Conway was trying to flick a full ball on…
