Cricket: England bowl against India in 2nd Test!

England vs India 2018

LONDON: England captain Joe Root won the toss and elected to field against India in the second Test at Lord’s today. 
After rain washed out Thursday’s scheduled first day without a ball bowled, there were blue and sunny skies above Lord’s.
England made two changes from the side that beat India by 31 runs in the first Test at Edgbaston last week to go 1-0 up in this five-match series.
As confirmed by England captain Joe Root on Wednesday, Surrey batsman Ollie Pope was given a Test debut in place of Dawid Malan, who was dropped after a run of low scores.
Pope is the fourth player under 21 to represent England in Test cricket this year, following Mason Crane, Dominic Bess, and Sam Curran.
England was without Ben Stokes because of his ongoing trial on a charge of affray in Bristol.
Fellow pace-bowling all-rounder Chris Woakes came into the side in Stokes’s absence, with off-spinner Moeen Ali dropped from a squad where uncapped Essex pace bowler Jamie Porter had already been released.
India also made two changes, with Cheteshwar Pujara coming in after struggling opener Shikhar Dhawan was dropped and left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who caused England problems in the preceding white-ball series, replacing paceman Umesh Yadav.
KL Rahul was set to open alongside Murali Vijay.
Kuldeep’s inclusion meant India played two spinners, with off-break bowler Ravichandran Ashwin, who starred at Edgbaston, retained.

Teams:
England: Alastair Cook, Keaton Jennings, Joe Root (capt), Ollie Pope, Jonny Bairstow (wkt), Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes, Sam Curran, Adil Rashid, Stuart Broad, James Anderson

India: KL Rahul, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (capt), Ajinkya Rahane, Dinesh Karthik (wkt), Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma

Umpires: Aleem Dar (PAK), Marais Erasmus (RSA)
TV umpire: Chris Gaffaney (NZL)
Match referee: Jeff Crowe (NZL)

Relevant piece:

James Anderson struck twice to leave India 11 for two at lunch after a rain-marred opening session on the second day of the second Test against England at Lord’s on Friday.
After rain washed out Thursday’s first day without a ball bowled, England captain Joe Root decided to field when he won the toss.
Although the skies above Lord’s were then blue and sunny, they soon clouded over and combined with a green-tinged pitch made conditions favorable for England’s pacemen and in particular swing specialist Anderson.
England’s all-time leading Test wicket-taker started this match needing just six wickets to become the first bowler to take 100 wickets in Tests at Lord’s and he needed just five balls to move closer to that landmark.
The 36-year-old Lancashire star struck in the first over of the day. Murali Vijay, aiming legside as the ball moved in towards him in the air, was undone by late outswing and bowled for a duck to leave India naught for one.
His exit brought in Cheteshwar Pujara, recalled after India dropped struggling opener Shikhar Dhawan.
Pujara may be sixth in the Test batting rankings but he averaged a meager 14.33 in 12 innings for Yorkshire this season with a top score of 41.
But Pujara could only watch Anderson dismissed KL Rahul (eight), who pushed forward defensively and got a thin edge to wicket-keeper Jonny Bairstow.
Rahul might have left the ball but, with Anderson bowling from the Pavilion End, there is always a concern for right-handed batsmen that the ball can come down the slope that runs across the ground and hit the off stump.
India were 10 for two in the seventh over, with Anderson having taken two wickets for five runs in 15 balls.
But two balls later, after new batsman Virat Kohli, the India captain, had added a single, the umpires took the players off the field for rain.
Pujara and Kohli were then both one not out.
Lunch was brought forward to 12:40 pm (1140 GMT) in the hope the match could restart at 1:20 pm.
Both teams made two changes after England’s 31-run win in the first Test at Edgbaston — a match that, despite star batsman, Kohli’s first Test century on English soil, left the home team 1-0 up in a five-match series.
Ollie Pope, a 20-year-old Surrey batsman, made his England debut after Dawid Malan was dropped.
England was without Ben Stokes because of his ongoing trial on a charge of affray in Bristol.
Fellow pace-bowling all-rounder Chris Woakes replaced Stokes.
For India, Pujara replaced struggling opener Shikhar Dhawan and left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who troubled England with 14 wickets in the preceding limited overs series, was selected for just his third Test after paceman Umesh Yadav was omitted.
Earlier, former England captain Ted Dexter rang the Pavilion bell to signal five minutes before the start of play.
That honor would have gone to India great Sachin Tendulkar had the match started on Thursday.

Cricket: Sri Lanka edge out S. Africa by 3 wickets in only T20

Sri Lanka thrash S.Africa

COLOMBA: Spinner Lakshan Sandakan starred in Sri Lanka’s hard-fought three-wicket win over South Africa in the only Twenty20 international after bowling out the visitors for their lowest total in the game’s shortest format.
Electing to bat in the only T20 match of the tour, South Africa were bowled out for 98, a total the hosts surpassed with four overs to spare.
The Proteas, who lost the two-Test series 2-0 and then came back to clinch the one-day internationals 3-2, were two runs less than their previous low score of 100 against Pakistan in 2013.
Dinesh Chandimal, who returned from his ban for breaching the spirit of the game, remained unbeaten on 36 to guide the team home in a tricky chase.
But it was Sandakan’s bowling figures of 3-19 with his left-arm wrist spin that set up the win. He was ably supported by fellow spinners Dhananjaya de Silva and Akila Dananjaya who took two wickets each.
Wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock top-scored with 20 before being run out but the rest of the South African batting fell flat in 16.4 overs.
Sri Lankan batsmen also made heavy weather of their 99-run target as the South African bowlers led by paceman Kagiso Rabada made the hosts work hard for their win.
Rabada, fellow paceman Junior Dala, and spinner Tabraiz Shamsi took two wickets each.
From a comfortable 59-2, the hosts slipped to 88-7, but Chandimal kept his calm during his 33-ball stay that laced with 3 fours and 1 six.
Chandimal, 28, was banned for two Tests and four ODIs after refusing to take the field against West Indies following ball-tampering allegations in June.
Sri Lanka now hosts England for a full series in October-November while South Africa travel to Australia for three ODI matches and one T20 during the same period.

Cricket: England beats India by an innings and 159 runs in 2nd Test

England vs India 2018

LONDON: England beat India by an innings and 159 runs to win the second Test at Lord’s today. 
Victory, achieved on the fourth day of a rain-marred match featuring a total first-day washout, put England 2-0 up in this five-match series.
India slumped to 130 all out in their second innings, with James Anderson taking his 100th Test wicket at Lord’s en route to four for 23, with Stuart Broad’s four for 44 featuring two wickets in two balls.
But, appropriately, Chris Woakes ended the match when he had Ishant Sharma caught at leg-slip by debutant Ollie Pope.
Woakes, recalled in place of Ben Stokes after his fellow all-rounder was omitted because of an ongoing trial for affray, made 137 not out – his maiden Test century – in England’s first innings 396 for seven declared.

His stand of 189 with Jonny Bairstow, an England record for the sixth wicket against India, helped the hosts recover after they had slumped to 89 for four.
Anderson took five for 20 in swing-friendly conditions as India collapsed to 107 all out in their first innings.
India batted for just 82.2 overs in the entire match, with England’s lone innings occupying 88.1 overs.
The third Test at Trent Bridge starts on Saturday, with India now looking to become only the second team in history to win a five-Test series from 2-0 down after a Don Bradman-inspired Australia achieved the feat against England back in 1936/37.

Aug 01-04: 1st Test, Edgbaston: England won by 31 runs

James Anderson and Stuart Broad shared eight wickets before Chris Woakes completed a brilliant return to international duty with the final blow as England thrashed India by an innings and 159 runs in the second Test at Lord’s on Sunday.
India, the world’s top-ranked Test side, failed to cope with overcast and swing-friendly conditions in both their innings, with a rain-marred match effectively over in under two days’ standard playing time.
India were dismissed for 130 on Sunday’s fourth day, having been skittled out for just 107 first-time around.
Anderson, England’s all-time leading Test wicket-taker, finished with innings figures of four for 23 as he became the first bowler to take 100 Test wickets at Lord’s.
Allied to the first-innings return of five for 20, that meant Anderson had a match haul of nine for 43.
“I am not very proud of the way we played,” India captain Virat Kohli told Sky Sports. “England deserved to win; we deserved to lose.”
Victory left England 2-0 up in this five-match series after their 31-run win in the first Test at Edgbaston last week.
“The bowling unit were exceptional throughout the whole game,” said Joe Root, the England captain.
“The conditions were in our favor but you still have to ask questions and we did.”
Only once have a side come from 2-0 down to win a five-match Test series, when a Don Bradman inspired Australia recovered to beat England in 1936/37.
This match was a personal triumph for Woakes, who was recalled by England in place of Ben Stokes because of his fellow pace-bowling all-rounder’s ongoing trial for affray.
Woakes’s 137 not out, his maiden Test century was the cornerstone of England’s 396 for seven declared.
He also shared an England record sixth-wicket stand against India of 189 with Jonny Bairstow (93).
That partnership helped England recover from a top-order collapse that saw them slump to 89 for four at lunch on the third day.
Man-of-the-match Woakes also had overall figures of four for 43.
“To get to a position where we could declare after Jonny and Woakesy’s magnificent partnership, I am chuffed to bits for Woakesy to get a hundred,” said Root.
His century saw Woakes become just the fourth cricketer after England’s Gubby Allen and Ian Botham and Australia’s Keith Miller to have scored a century and taken 10 or more wickets in a Test at Lord’s, with the Warwickshire star returning match figures of 11 for 102 at the ‘home of cricket’ against Pakistan two years ago.
“To get a hundred and be on the honors board is something that will stay with me forever,” said Woakes.
Sunday’s humid and cloudy conditions were ideal for 36-year-old Lancashire swing bowler Anderson, who has now taken 553 Test wickets.
That left Anderson, fifth in the all-time Test standings, just 10 wickets behind Glenn McGrath’s tally of 563 — the most by any paceman at this level, with the top three places all belonging to spinners.
Having bowled opener Murali Vijay for naught in the first innings, it was not long before Anderson had him caught behind for a second duck — his 100th wicket in 23 Tests at Lord’s.
Vijay’s fellow opener KL Rahul fell for 10 when lbw to Anderson.
After lunch, Ajinkya Rahane (13) was well caught by Keaton Jennings at third slip off Broad.
Rahane’s exit brought in Kohli, the world’s top-ranked batsman coming in at number five rather than his usual number four position because of a stiff back.
But Kohli, who hopes to be fit for the third Test in Nottingham starting on Saturday, could only watch as Broad’s superb late inswinger knocked over off stump to bowl Cheteshwar Pujara for 17.
Kohli, needing prolonged on-field treatment, fell for 17 when caught by debutant Ollie Pope at short-leg off Broad.
And the next ball saw Broad have Dinesh Karthik plumb lbw.
Ravichandran Ashwin (33 not out) survived the hat-trick, Broad spearing the ball legside for four byes, before Woakes ended the match when Ishant Sharma was caught by Pope at leg-slip.

New-ball veterans James Anderson and Stuart Broad were both in the wickets as England eyed a crushing victory over India in the second Test at Lord’s on Sunday.
India were 66 for their six in their second innings, still, 223 runs adrift of England’s first-innings 396 for seven declared when rain led to an early tea on the fourth day.
Despite rain having washed out the whole of Thursday’s first day and much of Friday’s second, England were now just four wickets away from going 2-0 up in this five-match series after a 31-run win in the first Test at Edgbaston last week.
Anderson, England’s all-time leading Test wicket-taker, removed both India openers before lunch and Broad followed up in the second session.
Anderson started Sunday on 99 Test wickets in 23 Tests at Lord’s following his first-innings haul of five for 20 in India’s meager 107 all out.
As in that innings, Sunday’s overcast conditions were ideal for the 36-year-old Lancashire swing bowler.
And having bowled Murali Vijay for nought in the first innings, it was not long before Anderson had him caught behind for the opener’s second duck this match to become the first bowler to take 100 Test wickets at Lord’s.
Fellow opener KL Rahul fell for 10 when, playing across the line, he was lbw to Anderson.
India were 17 for two when rain forced an early lunch, with Anderson having then taken two for eight in five overs.
Rahul’s exit gave Anderson, fifth in the all-time standings, his 551st Test wicket.
Anderson was now just 12 shy of the 563 Test wickets taken by Glenn McGrath.
The Australia great has taken the most Test wickets by any paceman.
The top three places all belong to spinners, with Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan leading the way on 800 Test wickets.
But with the remainder of this innings and three more Tests against India to come, Anderson could overtake McGrath before the end of this series.
After lunch, Rahane (13) was well caught by Keaton Jennings at third slip off Broad despite Jos Buttler moving across from second slip.
Rahane’s exit brought in India captain Virat Kohli, the world’s top-ranked batsman coming in at number five rather than his usual number four position because of a stiff back.
But Kohli could only watch as Broad’s superb late inswinger knocked over off stump to bowl Cheteshwar Pujara for 17.
Kohli, needing prolonged on-field treatment, fell for 17 when well caught by Ollie Pope at short leg off Broad.
And the next ball saw Broad have Dinesh Karthik plumb lbw.
Ravichandran Ashwin survived the hat-trick, Broad spearing the ball legside for four byes.
Earlier, England batted on for 36 minutes before Joe Root declared when Sam Curran, who swatted a six off Mohammed Shami, holed out for 40.
Chris Woakes, recalled for this match after fellow pace-bowling all-rounder Ben Stokes was omitted because of an ongoing trial for affray, finished on 137 not out.
Woakes faced 177 balls, including 21 fours.
He completed his maiden Test century on Saturday, when he shared an England record sixth-wicket stand against India of 189 with Jonny Bairstow (93).
That partnership helped England recover from a top-order collapse that saw them slump to 89 for four at lunch on the third day.
Woakes’s innings meant he became just the fourth cricketer after Gubby Allen, Ian Botham (both England) and Keith Miller (Australia), to have scored a century and taken 10 or more wickets in a Test at Lord’s, with the Warwickshire star returning match figures of 11 for 102 at the ‘home of cricket’ against Pakistan two years ago.

Cricket One-Day Final: Sri Lanka beats South Africa!

Published

on

COLOMBO: Akila Dananjaya claimed six scalps and picked up widespread tributes as Sri Lanka hammered South Africa by 178 runs in the final one-day international today.
While the result did not stop South Africa taking the series 3-2, Dananjaya’s performance established the pint-sized 24-year-old as one of the most threatening spinners on the international circuit.
Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews hit 97 off 97 balls as his side made 299 for eight off their 50 overs. Dananjaya then ripped through South Africa batting line-up as they aimed for the biggest target score taken on by a visiting country at Colombo’s R. Premadasa stadium.
The tourists were all out for 121 two balls short of 25 overs. Dananjaya, who took six for 29, became one of just four spin bowlers with two six-wicket hauls in one-day internationals.
South African skipper Quinton de Kock made 54, with seven fours and a six, before he was bowled by Dananjaya.
“Akila knows what he’s doing with the ball. It’s hard to take on someone like this when he has so many variations up his sleeve,” said de Kock, who got precious little support.
“We have batted well against him in this series, but today he bowled really well.”
Dananjaya’s spin accounted for four of South Africa’s top five batsmen — de Kock, Aiden Markram, Reeza Hendricks and Heinrich Klaasen. Apart from the captain, they managed just 23 runs between them.
Niroshan Dickwella set the tone for a determined batting display by Sri Lanka, hitting 43 off 65 balls before Mathews proved he is becoming a force again after a series of injury layoffs.
Mathews also started slowly, but his final 47 runs came off just 31 balls.
“This was a performance we were looking for but it came in the last match.
“If we had been like that in the first three games things could have been a lot different,” said Mathews.
Despite the fightback in the last two matches of the series, Mathews insisted that the team are still “a work in progress” as they head for the World Cup in England next year.
“We have got about 20 more games so we are looking to get better. We want to make the most of it.”
After South Africa lost both Test matches in Sri Lanka, de Kock said it was a relief to win the one-day series. “It is never easy coming here and winning in Sri Lanka.”
South Africa’s tour ends with a T20 game against the Sri Lankans at the same Colombo stadium on Tuesday.
