first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Other Sports News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Lucknow: Indian shuttler Sourabh Verma’s impressive run at the Syed Modi International tournament came to an end after he lost in straight games to Chinese Taipei’s Wang Tzu Wei in the men’s singles final in Lucknow on Sunday. The 26-year-old Indian, who won two BWF Super 100 titles in Hyderabad and Vietnam this year, went down 15-21 17-21 to world no 22 Tzu Wei in a 48-minute summit clash to miss out on his maiden Super 300 crown. Sourabh came into the summit clash with a 1-1 head-to-head record, having lost narrowly to Tzu Wei at the Tong Yun Kai Cup in March this year.The Indian, who was at the court for 75 minutes during his semifinal win over Korea’s Heo Kwang Hee on Friday, couldn’t produce his best in the final as Tzu Wei claimed his first title in three years. The duo engaged in long rallies with Sourabh trailing 1-3 initially but the Indian soon managed to make it 4-3 in his favour. Sourabh waited for errors from his opponents and punished any weak returns to grab a 7-4 advantage. Tzu Wei then tried to play closer to the net and it worked as he not only drew parity at 8-8 but lead 10-8. Sourabh grabbed two points before finding the net as Tzu Wei held a slender 11-10 lead at the break.The Taiwanese shuttler dominated the proceedings after the interval and opened up a 18-13 lead after the Indian went long. Tzu Wei eventually sealed the opening game after the Indian made a judgement error at the backline. In the second game, Sourabh struggled with the length and lagged 0-5 at the start. A superb backhand shot gave him a point but Tzu Wei put a lot of power in his smashes to make life difficult for the Indian.Also Read | PV Sindhu Aims To Break Run Of Early Exits In French Open Badminton TournamentSourabh fought his way back to narrow the gap to 5-7 before a focussed Tzu Wei managed to hold on to a three-point lead at the break. The momentum shifted in Sourabh’s favour after the breather as he clawed his way back at 13-13 when Tzu Wei went wide. Tzu Wei broke the run of play with a body smash before Sourabh returned the favour and grabbed the lead for the first time in the second game at 15-14. The Taiwanese, however, again took the lead and grabbed three championship points and sealed the match when Sourabh went long again.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi : Royal Challengers Bangalore and India captain Virat Kohli on Friday said he was happy with the kind of players picked by his franchise during the IPL auction and looking to enjoy “the best form of cricket by playing bold”. During the IPL auction held in Kolkata on Thursday, RCB bought eight players, including the likes of Chris Morris, Aaron Finch, Kane Richardson and Dale Steyn.“I am very happy with the players that we have selected and really looking forward to the new season. We’ve had a lot of discussions on the structure and balance of the team and this looks like a good start for us,” Kohli said. “I believe it all comes down to every individual to give out their best performance during the league and to enjoy the best form of cricket by playing bold,” he added.RCB’s Director of Cricket Operations Mike Hesson said the plan of the franchise in the auction was to look at players that will combine well with the retained squad. “We want a squad that can have balance and adapt to any conditions both at home and away. To pick players who help us maximise our budget judiciously took a thoughtful approach.I am very pleased with the way auction went,” he said. “We wanted the majority of our overseas players to bring plenty of international experience in order to add and share knowledge with the exciting developing talents we already have at RCB. When we look at any overseas player to bring to RCB, it’s not only about talent, but where else can they contribute,” he added.Hesson termed Finch a hugely experienced player who not only adds plenty of skill but also a calm head to the team. “Chris Morris and Isuru Udana both provide all round packages being able to bowl at any time in the innings, especially death overs. Kane Richardson and Dayle Steyn have the ability to take wickets in the Power Play and bring some hostility and experience to our attack.“We have picked a local talent in Pavan Deshpande who provides us batting cover, his power and flexibility where he bats is a very useful addition to the squad.” RCB Chairman Sanjeev Churiwala said his franchise had wanted a balanced squad that embodies the philosophy of RCB, a bold and fearless attitude to project the best cricket in the tournament.“I am glad that we have managed to assemble a team of some of the strongest T20 players and with the guidance of Mike, Simon and other coaching staffs, we have a very good set of combinations that drives the RCB proposition for a great season.” RCB have not won the IPL title in the 12 editions so far. They were runners-up in both 2009 and 2011 to then Deccan Chargers and Chennai Super Kings respectively.

first_imgTHE chasing team continued their streak of winning full-length matches at the 2018 IPL, with Royal Challengers Bangalore collecting the two points on this occasion. Umesh Yadav’s three wickets in one over set the game up early, after which the South African duo of Quinton de Kock and AB de Villiers brushed aside a slight hiccup to take the hosts to a comfortable four-wicket win. RCB’s victory helped the franchise arrest their five-match losing streak at the Chinnaswamy.At one point, it didn’t look easy for RCB, especially after they lost both Brendon McCullum and the captain Virat Kohli inside the Powerplay. But the 54-run partnership between de Kock and de Villiers did enough to take the pressure off the chase, after which Chris Woakes and Washington Sundar saw the team through to the win.In the first innings, Kings XI made 155, but should’ve made more after a blazing start courtesy KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. At the end of the match, the losing captain R Ashwin confessed that Kings XI was “twenty runs short”, and that – one could say – was the eventual difference between the two sides.Despite the batsmen getting RCB across the line, it was their bowlers who set the game up. Umesh Yadav returned figures of 3 for 23, which included a triple-wicket over and was assisted by useful spells from Kulwant Khejroliya and Sundar.last_img read more

first_imgFORMER national cyclist-turned-businessman Wilbert Benjamin continued his benevolence over the past weekend by donating a new racing cycle to 2017 national juvenile champion, Berbice’s David Hicks.Last month, Benjamin who is based in Canada where he owns and operate a sports store and also owns a similar store located at Courtland Village, Corentyne, Berbice, donated cycles, spare parts and uniforms to several individuals and to his former club Flying Ace Cycle Club (FACC).

first_imgMADRID, Spain (Reuters) – Spanish footballers are surprised and indignant that an agreement to stage regular season La Liga matches in the United States has been made without their consent, their union said yesterday.La Liga’s organising body announced last week in partnership with multinational media, sports and entertainment group Relevent that it plans to hold Spanish top flight games in the U.S. in the future.La Liga has not yet given details on when the first game across the Atlantic would take place, how many games per season would be involved, how they would be selected or whether it would compensate the loss of home advantage for teams involved.In response, the Spanish Footballers Union (AFE) said it was holding a meeting yesterday to discuss the issue and added to the criticism which it made at the time of the announcement.The AFE said that “captains and players” from La Liga sides would participate.“The AFE and the players do not understand unilateral decisions,” said a statement published yesterday. It said the players were “surprised and indignant that their views were not taken into account in an agreement which affects them directly.”“La Liga is distancing the fans from the players, which damages the spectacle and the essence of football,” it added.“The players again feel they are marginalised from decision-making (even though) they are the fundamental actors and their opinions are essential for the growth of Spanish football.“The players demand that our opinions be heard and taken into account in any future negotiation or decision by La Liga which affects them.”The AFE also demanded “balance and common sense” in decision-making and complained about the kickoff times for some La Liga games this season.“The players are again being punished by the kick-off times of certain matches, which can damage their health because of the weather conditions or the lack of recovery time,” it said.“The AFE points out that certain kick-off times can be harmful for everyone who is involved in the spectacle – players, fans, and referees, whose health can be endangered.”last_img read more

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados,  (CMC) – West Indies Twenty20 captain Carlos Brathwaite warmed up for next month’s tour of India with a scintillating Man-of-the-Match all-round performance as Combined Campuses and Colleges Marooners stunned Barbados Pride by seven wickets here Wednesday.The 30-year-old seamer claimed three for 21 from 10 superb overs as Pride, sent in at 3W’s Oval, were bundled out cheaply for 174 in the final over of their 50 allotted.Opener Shayne Moseley struck a patient 49 and all-rounder Kevin Stoute, 37, but Pride’s top order once again struggled to string partnerships together.Brathwaite, the Marooners captain, then shone with the bat, blasting an unbeaten 50 from 31 balls – his third List A half-century – as the hosts overcame a minor hiccup to reach their target in the 32nd over.The barrel-chested right-hander smashed three fours and three sixes and was the catalyst for a match-winning unbroken 90-run, fourth wicket partnership with Jonathan Drakes who ended on 41 not out.Kjorn Ottley chipped in with 42 while fellow opener Kyle Corbin scored 40, as Marooners put together their most clinical performance of the Regional Super50 to upset their neighbours.The defeat left Pride still in fourth spot without a win in three matches and with all to do if they are to climb into the top two in Group B and qualify for the semi-finals.Marooners, meanwhile, collected their second win and will now climb into second above Leeward Islands Hurricanes who failed to beat USA in the day/night contest also on Wednesday.Pride endured a nightmare start when Leniko Boucher (2) and captain Shamarh Brooks (0) perished cheaply to leave the score on 13 for two in the seventh over.Moseley and Jonathan Carter (11) added 27 for the third wicket but once Carter and Justin Greaves (7) fell in quick succession, Pride were tottering on 55 for four in the 21st over.However, the left-handed Moseley combined with Stoute in the best stand of the innings – 40 for the fifth wicket – in a repair job for Pride.While Moseley faced 87 deliveries and counted three fours, Stoute struck a four and a six in a 71-ball knock.Brathwaite broke the stand when he bowled Moseley with a full length delivery in the 34th over and with six runs added two overs later, had Ashley Nurse caught and bowled for two.Springer, who made 22, then anchored three small stands, enabling Pride to get up to their eventual total.In reply, Kjorn Ottley and Corbin gave Marooners a solid start of 70, to further damage Pride’s hopes of an immediate comeback.Ottley struck two fours and three sixes in an attractive 57-ball innings while Corbin was also free-scoring, counting six fours and a six off just 46 balls.When former West Indies left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn claimed Corbin lbw in the 15th over, it triggered a slide that saw three wickets fall for 18 runs as Amir Jangoo (3) and Ottley followed in the space of 32 deliveries at the hands of West Indies off-spinner Ashley Nurse.But any hopes Pride had of turning the tables on Marooners were quickly dashed as Brathwaite took control of the encounter with a dashing innings, in tandem with Drakes who faced 46 deliveries and struck four fours.Brathwaite ended the game in style with two consecutive sixes off Windies teammate Ashley Nurse who finished with two for 43.PRIDES Moseley b Brathwaite 49+L Boucher run out 2*S Brooks lbw b Brathwaite 0J Carter c wkp Jangoo b Jordan 11J Greaves lbw b Y Ottley 7K Stoute c Y Ottley b Buchanan 37A Nurse c and b Brathwaite 2S Springer c Kirton b Jordan 22S Benn b Jordan 15M Cummins c and b Cottoy 20M Mindley not out 0Extras (b1, lb2, w5, nb1) 9TOTAL (all out, 49.2 overs) 174Fall of wickets: 1-13, 2-13, 3-40, 4-55, 5-95, 6-101, 7-125, 8-151, 9-172, 10-174.Bowling: Y Ottley 8-1-21-1, Jordan 9.2-0-36-3, Brathwaite 10-2-21-3, Jagessar 6-2-19-0, Cottoy 6-1-38-1, Buchanan 10-0-36-1.MAROONERSK Corbin lbw b Benn 40K Ottley lbw b Nurse 42+A Jangoo c wkp Boucher b Nurse 3J Drakes not out 41*C Brathwaite not out 50Extras (lb2) 2TOTAL (3 wkts, 31.3 overs) 178Did not bat: L Buchanan, K Cottoy, J Jagessar, A Jordan, Y Ottley, N Kirton.Fall of wickets: 1-70, 2-85, 3-88.Bowling: Cummins 5-1-29-0, Mindley 3-1-17-0, Benn 10-1-38-1, Nurse 7.3-1-43-2, Carter 2-0-18-0, Springer 2-0-9-0, Stoute 2-0-22-0.last_img read more
