Dhawan impressed by Pant's calmness on captaincy debut, says he's only going to get better IMAGE: Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant kept his calm. Photograph: BCCI/IPL Delhi Capitals experienced opener Shikhar Dhawan was mighty impressed with Rishabh Pant's leadership qualities, saying the youngster led the team in a calm and composed manner in his first match as captain and will only get better with time. Pant was thrust into captaincy after regular skipper Shreyas Iyer sustained a shoulder injury during the recent ODI series against England and was ruled out of the tournament. "He (Rishabh Pant) did quite well. First of all, glad that he won the toss. It was a bit of a sticky wicket, so it was good for us to bat second. He kept his calm and kept on motivating the boys," Dhawan said during the post-match press conference. "He made good changes as well. It was his first match (as captain), so I am sure it is only going to get refined from here. He has … [Read more...] about How captain Pant fared in his first match

Suresh Raina is back with a bang in IPL but rued the fact that CSK failed to score an additional 20 runs against Delhi Capitals in their opening game which led to a seven wicket defeat. CSK put on board a competitive 188 with Raina scoring a brisk 54 but last-year’s finalists Delhi Capitals overhauled the target without any fuss. “A bit disappointed to lose the game, it could have been better, but like I said it is always to come back and do the Whistle Podu,” Raina said in a video posted by CSK on their website. “It could have been better if we would have scored 15-20 runs more but I think we bowled better in the middle overs, in the next few days we will have a few good practice sessions where can we learn what to do better,” he added. Rain had missed the last edition of the IPL held in the UAE due to personal reasons and the left-hander said he enjoyed his first outing in yellow jersey. “It feels amazing to be back with MS Dhoni and the Chennai Super Kings. It is always good to … [Read more...] about Raina Feels CSK Were 15-20 Runs Short Against Capitals
With the 2021 NFL Draft so top-heavy at the quarterback position, there hasn’t been much chatter surrounding Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond . A three-year starter for the Aggies, Mond is coming off a 2020 season that saw him complete 63.3% of his passes for 2,282 yards with 19 touchdowns and three interceptions. As of now, Mond appears to be projected as a second or third-round pick, but there is growing interest in NFL teams surrounding the Texas A&M signal-caller. During Sunday morning’s edition of ESPN’s SportsCenter, senior NFL reporter Jeremy Fowler talked about the upside of selecting Mond. “Teams are saying he’s an intriguing Day 2 option, somewhere in that second to third round range as a potential starter with upside. I spoke to A&M coach Jimbo Fisher who said he’s talked to 10-15 NFL teams extensively about Mond. And they all value the same things. He’s a winner. He won 32 games, four-year starter, experienced, has arm and athleticism and … [Read more...] about Kellen Mond’s 2021 NFL Draft stock is on the rise

His exploits with the bat and ball had given KKR multiple options in the past but the West Indian was far from his best in 2020 and was also called for suspect action. Heading into his ninth season with the franchise, Narine faces some heat as KKR seemed to have got his back-up in the form of Bangladesh's star all-rounder Shakib. But the KKR skipper thinks differently and said: "Shakib and Sunil are no different. In big moments of the game, particularly last year, you would throw Sunil the ball or you would get him in with the bat because he has been in that situation over and over again.

IMAGE: Since winning their only IPL title in 2016, Sunrisers Hyderabad have made it to the play-offs, but failed to win the IPL title. Photograph: BCCI One of the most consistent teams in the Indian Premier League over the last few years, Sunrisers Hyderabad will be one of the teams to watch out for in IPL 2021. Since winning their only IPL title in 2016, Sunrisers have always made it to the play-offs, but failed to win the IPL title. With the likes of David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey and Wriddhiman Saha in their ranks, SRH have one of the most destructive batting line-ups. With an in-form Jason Roy also in the equation, the choice of four foreigners won't be that easy with Captain Warner and Rashid Khan picking themselves. Bairstow was in splendid form in the ODI series against India and given his good record opening the batting for SRH with Warner in the last few years, it will be very difficult to keep him out. Jason … [Read more...] about Can Sunrisers Hyderabad go all the way?
