Pandya stars as Mumbai Indians end CSK’s unbeaten run

first_imgMUMBAI Indians (MI) registered a comprehensive 37-run victory to end Chennai Super Kings’ unbeaten run in IPL 2019 yesterday.Put in to bat first, MI started slowly but late blitzkrieg from Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya helped them end at 170/5.Quinton de Kock (4) departed in just the third over as he looked to up the ante but holed out at square leg with Deepak Chahar drawing first blood.Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav then tried to repair the damage, adding 37 runs for the second wicket. But Ravindra Jadeja cut short the MI skipper’s stay, dismissing him on 13. Rohit edged one to Dhoni who took a smart catch.Tahir then removed in-form Yuvraj Singh (4) cheaply. Krunal Pandya came out all guns blazing, hitting Chahar for three consecutive boundaries. Local boy Suryakumar Yadav looked good as well during his stay, timing the ball well and getting on top of the bounce early.The two took their time but ensured that MI didn’t lose anymore wickets. Suryakumar completed his half-century from 38 balls. However, Mohit Sharma removed Krunal Pandya for 42, with the all-rounder missing out on a deserving half-century. Krunal hit five boundaries and one six.Suryakumar departed for 59 in the next over and that brought big hitters Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard to the crease.MI were 125-5 after 18 overs and were headed for a below-par score but things changed dramatically in the final two overs.Shardul Thakur conceded 16 runs from the 19th while usually reliable Dwayne Bravo conceded 29 runs from the final over as Mumbai added 45 runs in the final two overs.Pandya hit 25 runs from just 8 balls, with three huge sixes and one boundary. Pollard meanwhile hit 17 from 7 with two sixes, much to the delight of MI dressing room.All the CSK bowlers were among the wickets, with Tahir’s 1-25 being the standout performance. Jadeja interestingly bowled only two overs and ended with figures of 1-10. Bravo’s figures of 1-49 were marred by a disastrous final over.CSK’s chase got off to the worst possible start, with Ambati Rayudu’s struggles with the bat extending further. The opener was removed for a first-ball duck by Jason Behrendorff as he extracted some extra bounce from the wicket.Malinga removed the other opener, Shane Watson, as he hit one straight to Pollard at covers.Behrendorff kept things tight and was soon rewarded with a wicket but it was more due to the fielding brilliance of Pollard on the boundary line.Suresh Raina looked to hit one into the stands, but Pollard stationed at the point boundary took a one-handed blinder, ending with a somersault.MS Dhoni got a hero’s welcome as he joined Kedar Jadhav at the crease. The two steadied the ship for CSK but took their time, completing the 50-partnership. Jadhav targeted Bumrah, hitting him for 15 runs in his first over.Just when the game seemed to be heading to Dhoni territory, Rohit threw the ball to Hardik and the all-rounder delivered by removing Dhoni and Jadeja in the same over.Dhoni hit one straight to square leg, departing for a 21-ball 12. Jadeja nicked one straight to de Kock for 1.After that, it was always going to be an uphill task for the visitors. Jadhav scored a valiant half-century but departed for 58 as he looked to hit Malinga out of the park but only managed a nick to the keeper.Bravo hit one into the third tier but departed next ball for 8, again Malinga getting the wicket.Shardul Thakur did hit a six and a four, ending unbeaten on 10 but it was never going to be enough as MI registered a comprehensive win.Pandya was the standout bowler, ending with figures of 3-20. Malinga also picked up three but conceded 34 runs in his three overs. Behrendorff was the other star performer with the ball, ending with figures of 0-22.last_img read more

Trojan golf teams compete in early fall tournaments

first_imgUSC’s men’s golf team finished in a tie for first place with Oregon at the Itani Collegiate in Pullman, Washington, on Tuesday. To determine a winner of the tournament, the teams engaged in a playoff, where the Ducks reigned supreme after one hole. The Trojans finished at 6-under par for a final round score of 834 (273-270-291).Sophomore Rico Hoey finished the tournament in third place with a final score of 5-under 205 while junior Bobby Gojuangco and freshman Jonah Texeira finished tied for 10th with a score of 1-under 209. Freshman Sean Crocker moved up 13 spots on the final day to finish in a tie for 19th place with a score of 1-over 211.Some highlights from the first rounds of the tournament on the men’s side included sophomore Rico Hoey tying for first overall with Oregon’s Aaron Wise with a 9-under 131. Hoey had 10 birdies and only one bogey in the first two rounds. Gojuangco finished the second round tied with Texeira for ninth. Seniors Eric Sugimoto and Paul Smith ended Monday in 48th and 26th respectively; Sugimoto was 3-over while Smith was 1-under.The Women of Troy, meanwhile, completed the ANNIKA Intercollegiate Tournament in Orlando, Florida. The team finished in sixth place with a three-round combined score of 5-over 869 (287-291-291). They finished behind a top five which consisted of South Carolina, Arizona, Oklahoma State, Stanford and Duke respectively. Sophomore Karen Chung and senior Doris Chen tied for 11th after the final round with a score of 1-under 215. Sophomore transfer Elizabeth Doty tied for 25th with a score of 3-over 219 for the tournament.Both teams also had impressive opening two rounds of their respective tournaments. After 36 holes, the men’s team was in second place with a combined score of 17-under 543 (273-270). This left them trailing Oregon by two but one ahead of host Washington State and seven ahead of both California and Arizona State.The Women of Troy finished their second round in fourth place with a combined 2-over 578 (287-291). In a crowded field, the women’s team trailed first-place South Carolina by six, Arizona by five and Northwestern by three. Oklahoma, Stanford and defending NCAA champion Duke all finished the second round tied for fifth, one back of USC.Chen ended the second round tied for fourth at 2-under 142, finishing the round with a consistent 10 pars in a row. Chung was in 12th after Monday with an even 144. Junior walk-on Victoria Morgan had the flashiest shot of the day when she hit her first career hole-in-one on the par 3 seventh hole. Morgan called it “the shot of her life.”Despite a few impressive shots, USC’s women’s team finished the tournament in the middle of the pack. Though the Women of Troy seem to have fallen off from when they won a school-record eight events last season. But head coach Andrea Gaston remains optimistic.“[T]his was a nice oportunity to see some of the depth on our team,” Gaston said. “This was also our first tournament of the season. Obviously we would have liked to have finished better, but since most of our players haven’t competed for almost two months, we are pleased that all players contributed to the team score.”last_img read more

Japanese Surgeon Promises Dream Team VI $30,000 Each for Olympic Gold

first_imgA benefactor has promised a bonus of $30,000 to each Nigerian player should they win gold at the Rio 2016 men’s Olympic football tournament in Brazil according to the BBC.Celebrated Japanese plastic surgeon Katsuya Takasu announced his desire to reward the 1996 Olympic football champions, along with $20,000 for silver and $10,000 for bronze after hearing about their financial woes.“I read about the financial problems affecting the team and I felt the need to make a big contribution,” Takasu told BBC Sport. “I am not doing this for media attention but to motivate a team with an indomitable spirit. I fell in love with the Nigerian team because despite all these problems they are in the quarter-finals of the Olympics.“Whether they win or not, I will still donate something to help alleviate the challenges in paying their bonuses and allowances.”The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) were impressed by this gesture but are being careful. “I have been in direct contact with Mr Takasu and impressed by his gesture,” NFF vice-president Seyi Akinwunmi told BBC Sport.“But we need not get carried away because the integrity of the country is at stake. First we must check about this. Significantly, the team has an important game and we need to focus on that.”Before arriving in Rio, the ‘Dream Team VI’ were held up in Atlanta, USA, because of a problem with the payment for their flight.The 1996 Olympic champions only landed in Brazil just hours before their opening 5-4 win over Japan. Nigeria had a troubled build-up to their quarter-final against Denmark in Salvador on Saturday.The players boycotted a training session in a dispute over pay, and their injured top scorer with four goals – Ogenekaro Etebo – has been ruled out of the match but will return should Nigeria advance to the semi-finals.Meanwhile, the Nigeria Olympic team have now received their camp allowances from the government, according to the team’s media officer Timi Ebikagboro.“The sports ministry has cleared all camp allowances of the team in Brazil. Players and officials have now been paid 22 days allowances,” said Ebikagboro.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Live from Owings Mills: Ngata missing from practice again

first_imgOWINGS MILLS, Md. — Despite the notion that Haloti Ngata’s thigh injury is not considered serious, the Pro Bowl defensive tackle was missing from practice for the second straight day on Thursday.Ngata was nicked up during the Ravens’ 30-27 win over the Arizona Cardinals despite the team reporting no new injuries following the game. While concern has grown with the hulking defensive lineman missing from practice again, Ngata is still expected to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.Left guard Ben Grubbs practiced for the second straight day after he was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday. The fifth-year lineman appeared to be more active than he was the day before as he fired out from a three-point stance with the rest of the starting offensive line during positional drills.Return specialist David Reed (knee) returned to practice after not participating on Sunday, but wide receiver Lee Evans (ankle) and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (thigh) were not present during the portion of practice. Evans is expected to miss his sixth straight game as he deals with “stress” in his left ankle.last_img read more

MLB trade rumors: Tigers’ asking price for Matthew Boyd could prevent deal

first_img Dodgers trade rumors: Los Angeles among teams interested in Orioles reliever Mychal Givens The Tigers, widely expected to be offloading some of their top talent before the trade deadline, may not be so eager to part with Matthew Boyd.According to MLB.com, the Tigers “remain uncertain” about whether to deal the 28-year-old lefty, one of the most sought-after starters on the market. The Phillies are rumored to be particularly interested in Boyd (4.07 ERA, 1.13 WHIP in 2019). The Yankees, Astros and Brewers have also been mentioned as possible trade destinations. MLB trade rumors: ‘Chances are pretty high’ Mets move Zack Wheeler before deadline The trade discussions involving Boyd have also reportedly involved pairing him with either Castellanos or Greene to sweeten a potential deal.center_img But the MLB.com report notes that the Tigers’ “high asking price” for Boyd has made some baseball executives “doubt that he will be moved at this year’s deadline.” Boyd is under team control for three more seasons.On the other hand, the report says the Tigers are “virtually certain” to trade outfielder Nicholas Castellanos and “almost certain” to trade All-Star closer Shane Greene. Detroit has reportedly been very active in shopping Greene in recent days, with the Phillies also believed to be involved in those discussions.

Do you know which BH Football Player scored the Fastest Goal ever?

first_imgGoal that Christian Benteke scored on Monday on the match between Gibraltar and Belgium is the fastest in the history of the World Cup qualifiers.He scored after 8.1 seconds of match, and threw into oblivion Davide Gualtieri who scored in in the match between England and San Marino in 1993 just a few hundredths later.It is interesting that among the fastest goals ever is goal by one of BH national team players, and believe it or not – our goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.Begovic needed only 13 seconds to score it from a distance of almost a hundred meters on the match between the Premier League team Stoke and Southampton on the 2nd of November 2013.The fastest goal in the history of football was achieved in the championship of Saudi Arabia and it was scored by the player Al Hilal, Nawaf Al Abed in 2.3 seconds.(Source: fokus.ba)last_img read more
