Indian Premier League Andre Russell blitz gives Kolkata Knight Riders thrilling win vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

first_imghighlights New Delhi: David Warner had made a grand comeback to the IPL by blasting 85 in Sunrisers Hyderabad’s total of 181/3. Kolkata Knight Riders rode on Nitish Rana’s brilliant fifty but when a floodlight failure for close to 20 minutes halted play, Rana was trapped LBW by Rashid Khan for 68 and Kolkata Knight Riders needed 53 runs off the last three overs. The death overs were an area where Sunrisers Hyderabad excelled in the last couple of seasons. No one told that to Andre Russell, who was averaging just six against Sunrisers Hyderabad. In a blazing assault, the West Indies all-rounder blasted 19 runs in the 18th over bowled by Siddarth Kaul and 21 runs in the 19th by Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Shubman Gill finished the match with two sixes off Shakib Al Hasan in the final over as Kolkata Knight Riders secured a thrilling six-wicket win against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL 2019 encounter at the Eden Gardens on Sunday.Russell’s brilliant 49 off 19 balls, aided by Rana’s 68 was the key in Kolkata Knight Riders winning their seventh consecutive first match in the IPL but they had to fight it out till the end after Warner’s remarkable fifty, his 37th in IPL resulted in a brilliant return. Having been left out of the 2018 IPL due to the ball-tampering scandal, Warner displayed his class against pace and spin and he was given great support from Jonny Bairstow, who made his debut in the IPL and shared a great opening stand. Kolkata Knight Riders won the match by six wickets off the final over against Sunrisers Hyderabad.This was Kolkata Knight Riders’ seventh consecutive win in the opening game of IPL.Sunrisers Hyderabad were boosted by David Warner’s 37th IPL fifty. For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. The left-handed Warner got going with two boundaries off Piyush Chawla and Kolkata Knight Riders wasted a review when Chawla appealed for an LBW to a delivery that was pitching outside the line of leg stump. Bairstow thumped Chawla for a six and Warner continued to find the boundary on a regular basis, including two fours off Sunil Narine. Warner tackled Kuldeep by employing the reverse sweep and he benefited from a dropped catch by Dinesh Karthik on 39. Warner notched up his fifty by drilling Russell to the deep extra cover fence and by slicing a short ball over third man for a six.Warner slammed a six off Kuldeep and the opening stand went past 100 but Chawla broke the stand when Bairstow misjudged a skidder to be bowled for 39. Vijay Shankar came in and slammed some big hits. Warner (85) blasted another six off Russell but was unlucky to miss out on a century as he drove a full ball to cover where Robin Uthappa took a good catch. After Warner’s wicket, Russell accounted for Yusuf Pathan (1) with a slower delivery but Shankar pushed Sunrisers Hyderabad towards a good total by clobbering a four and a six off Prasidh Krishna in the 19th over.Chasing 182, Shakib Al Hasan struck in his first over when he removed Chris Lynn (7) cheaply. However, Rana and Uthappa steadied the ship for Kolkata Knight Riders, with the left-handed Rana hammering two fours and a six off Sandeep Sharma in the fourth over. Uthappa also rotated the strike and got some crucial boundaries and he benefited from a drop by Yusuf Pathan on 21 off the bowling of Rashid Khan. Rana neared his fifty with a slog swept six off Shakib but Siddarth Kaul broke the 80-run stand by getting rid of Uthappa with a yorker for 35.Karthik (2) was undone by a slow knuckle ball from Sandeep Sharma but Rana kept Kolkata Knight Riders in the hunt, smashing a six off Sandeep Sharma. However, from that point, it was the Dre Russ show and his hitting at the death overs cemented his reputation as one of the best finishers in Twenty20 cricket.last_img read more

CSA appoints Beresford Williams as acting president

first_imgCRICKET South Africa (CSA) has appointed Beresford Williams as acting president of the board – following the resignation of Chris Nenzani on Saturday – with a more long-term appointment expected when the board’s annual general meeting is convened on September 5.The decision came a day after Dr Jacques Faul resigned as acting CEO of the board, not long after the organisation revealed that Nenzani had stepped down from his position over the weekend and COO Naasei Appiah had been fired.Faul, who was seconded from the Titans in December 2019, was due to return to his role with the franchise on September 15, but opted to leave his post four weeks early.While Faul was not available for comment on Monday evening, ESPNcricinfo understands that he chose to leave his post following a heated board meeting in which his position became untenable.An acting CEO is expected to be named imminently, with Appiah, who is fighting his dismissal in court, making himself “available” on a radio show minutes after news of Faul’s resignation was made public. Company secretary Welsh Gwaza, who was at the board meeting, and was unable to divulge any information, is one of the names being mentioned for the acting role.In a statement, CSA said: “Dr Faul has put in place a detail transitional plan that will ensure the organisation makes a seamless transition to a new Acting CEO that the Board will advise on shortly. The Board is forever grateful for the outstanding commitment and leadership that Dr Faul has made and continues to make to CSA and the game of cricket.”Nenzani stepped down three weeks before his term was due to end, following increasing pressure in the face of administrative upheaval.A CSA statement, issued on Monday morning, gave no reason for Nenzani’s exit, and thanked him for his time in office. “Mr Nenzani has provided valuable leadership, insight, assistance and direction in advancing the game of cricket with a focus on achieving transformation and access for the majority of the South African population,” the statement read.Not everyone feels that’s enough, though. “Given what has happened over the last nine months, the president owes stakeholders an explanation for why he is stepping down now,” Andrew Breetzke, SACA CEO, told ESPNcricinfo.Nenzani had been in the position since 2013 and served two three-year terms, the second of which was extended through a change in CSA’s constitution in 2019. That gave Nenzani an additional 12 months, to see CSA through a difficult period. But he has since said he regretted staying on. (ESPN Cricinfo)last_img read more

USC avoids scare against Oregon

first_imgJust when it seemed like poor shooting would doom the USC women’s basketball team, Briana Gilbreath got hot.Down 58-51, the sharpshooting junior guard knocked down consecutive three-pointers to pull the Women of Troy (11-4, 3-1) within one point.  The teams traded baskets the rest of the way in a game that wasn’t decided until Oregon guard Nia Jackson missed a layup in the final seconds, preserving a 79-76 win for the Women of Troy.Gilbreath poured in 26 points for USC — with 20 coming after intermission — and added seven rebounds and four steals despite being plagued all game by foul trouble.Freshman forward Cassie Harberts scored 11 points and grabbed 18 rebounds for the Women of Troy, who outrebounded Oregon 56-42 and held a 23-12 edge in offensive rebounds.“I knew I had to rebound to help the team tonight,” Harberts said.  “Our guards had a size advantage which helped [all of us out].”USC knocked off one of the highest-scoring teams in the nation despite shooting just 36 percent from the field.  After the game, USC coach Michael Cooper credited his player’s resolve for allowing them to rally back from a double-digit deficit in the second half.“I like our toughness and think again that goes back to our preseason schedule and the team’s we played,” he said.  “That has given us something and gotten us ready for conference play.”Oregon led 45-35 before the Women of Troy went on a 12-0 run that gave them their first lead since the midpoint of the first half.USC held the Ducks nearly 10 points below their season average and frustrated Amanda Johnson, the conference’s leading scorer.Sloppy play marred the first 20 minutes of action.  USC trailed 37-30 and connected on just 11 of its 38 field goal attempts.  The Ducks were barely better at 33 percent, but hit nine three-pointers in the half.Oregon jumped out to an early 9-2 lead on a trio of three-pointers before Gemelos came off the bench and sparked USC with five quick points.  From there, the lead seesawed back and forth for the rest of the half before Oregon pulled away late with an 11-4 run.For the half, Gemelos led the Women of Troy with eight points off the bench.  The USC starters combined to shoot just 6-24 from the field in the half.With the victory, USC moved to 6-0 on the season at the Galen Center.last_img read more

USC falls to sixth place after loss at Cal

first_imgIn a game of runs, the Trojans tripped during the final sprint.After outplaying Cal nearly the entire game, USC blew a 10 point lead in the final six minutes, losing 76-68 to the Golden Bears in Berkeley after being outscored 25-7 to finish the game. The Trojans actually held a 15-point lead in the second half, but could only muster two field goals after taking a 10 point lead with 5:52 left.“I think we played really well to that point,” said USC interim head coach Bob Cantu. “At the end, we weren’t able to get stops and we had some key turnovers that led to some run-outs for them.”Moving on · Senior guard Jio Fontan, who scored 16 points in the loss at Cal, looks to get the team refocused for Sunday’s game against UCLA. – Ricardo Galvez | Daily TrojanJunior shooting guard J.T. Terrell led the Trojans with 17 points, while sophomore guard Byron Wesley had 16 points, including a season-high four 3-point shots on six attempts. Senior point guard Jio Fontan also had 16 points to go along with five assists.After the Trojans took their 61-51 lead with just under six minutes to go, Cal went on an 11-0 run over the next 2:40. The run was Cal’s third run of at least nine straight points, and was fueled by a 3-pointer each from leading guards Allen Crabbe and Justin Cobbs, who combined for 45 points.Down 62-61, the Trojans resolutely ended the run on the next possession with a spot-on 3-pointer from Fontan to go back up 64-62 with 3:25 to go. Instead of the momentum turning back to USC, though, the Golden Bears went on another run, this time a 10-0 sprint to give them a 72-64 advantage with 34 seconds left.The sides traded points for the next four possessions, but after Fontan missed a 3-pointer with USC down 76-68 with 16 seconds left, the Trojan comeback effort was officially finished.Finishing with a game-high 23 points and 10 rebounds, Crabbe found his stroke late and outscored USC himself, 10-7, to finish the game.“He made big shot after big shot,” Cantu said on Crabbe. “He played tremendously and those shots were able to catapult [Cal] over the hump late.”The agonizing part of the loss for USC was that the Trojans had the game in hand for the first 34 minutes.After Cal found a jumper for a quick two on their first possession, USC reeled off a 9-0 run, capitalized by a signature Terrell 3-pointer. The Trojans then missed their next eight shots and Cal had a 13-0 stretch to retake the lead at 15-9 with 11:15 to go in the half.The scoring streaks weren’t done yet though. USC had a 12-0 run in them this time, capped off by junior forward Dewayne Dedmon nailing an off-balance jumper while being fouled; he made a free throw for the three-point play. USC led 21-15 at this point, and the sides traded baskets for the rest of the half as USC entered the break leading 32-28. Cal had nine turnovers in the opening 20 minutes, and USC had 16 points off of those Golden Bear miscues.Just like the first half, Cal scored with a jumper on the first possession of the second half. And, just like the first half, USC went on another run. This time, the Trojans made their first six shots of the half for a 15-2 spurt that gave them a 47-32 with 16:01 left in the game.Cal pulled off a 9-0 stretch of their own to cut it back to 10 as the Trojans kept turning the ball over. But USC was still hot from the floor, and shot 58 percent through the first 14 minutes of the second half. Unfortunately, the last six minutes were the ones that mattered most.In earning the weekend split, one of USC’s bright spots was the stellar play of Dedmon, who logged a season-high 32 minutes on Sunday, while junior center Omar Oraby played only four. Oraby totaled just seven minutes against Cal and Stanford, in part because of Dedmon’s growth.“Dewayne has done a great job of not getting in foul trouble these last few games,” Cantu said. “And we’ve also been going small lately, and [senior forward] Aaron Fuller is getting a lot more time because of this.”Dedmon played 31 minutes against Stanford on Thursday, his previous season high.USC’s next game is on Sunday when it plays rival UCLA at the Galen Center. Tipoff is scheduled for 12:30 p.m.last_img read more

Hilpert’s matched that through his first two games.McIntyre said he’ll evaluate the goalkeeper situation “game-to-game,” but was adamant Hilpert needed experience.

Trojans rotate receivers during Tuesday’s practice

first_imgMadeleine Roche | Daily TrojanGreene corps · Injuries have forced USC to shuffle things around among its wide receivers. Junior Jalen Greene capitalized during Tuesday’s practice.With just a few days to go before the spring game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum this Saturday, the Trojans went to work at Howard Jones Field dealing with some lingering injuries on the offensive end. Receiver ShakeupJunior wide receiver Deontay Burnett, redshirt sophomore tight end Daniel Imatorbhebhe and junior tight end Tyler Petite all were limited in Tuesday’s practice due to recent injuries. As a result, many young pass catchers got a chance to prove themselves.Redshirt freshman tight end Cary Angeline saw extended minutes with the first team offense, making a nice touchdown grab during the full-speed scrimmage. Junior Jalen Greene, a converted quarterback, played the majority of snaps at first-string wide receiver, lining up alongside either sophomore Michael Pittman Jr. or freshman Tyler Vaughns, who are both battling for a spot in the starting lineup.“Those two guys are going at it,” redshirt sophomore quarterback Sam Darnold said. “They’ve been going at it the past few weeks, and it’s been awesome to see. Tyler [Vaughns] has really improved his route-running and [Pittman] has really improved as well. They’re going to compete all the way up until the season starts.”The Running Game With injuries to the offensive line and running back corps throughout spring ball, most attention has been paid to Darnold and the passing game. On Tuesday, however, junior running backs Aca’Cedric Ware and Ronald Jones II were both back at full strength and looked sharp.“I’m pretty sure everyone knows we can run the ball,” Ware said. “Our offensive line has continued to improve. They’re young guys who just had to get going, but I know everyone knows we can run the ball.” In the spring game, they will look to re-assert that the run game is an integral part of the Trojans’ offense. “We’re a run-first football team,” head coach Clay Helton said. “We got effective work [this spring]. I wish we had more numbers out here, but it is what it is, and we’ve made the most of it.” Stars Aligned With Athletic Director Lynn Swann, NFL Draft prospect JuJu Smith-Schuster and legendary USC and Patriots linebacker Willie McGinest all present at practice, the Trojans were treated to a star-studded audience. Earlier in the day, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was on campus training with several teammates. “I’ve been trying to [talk to Wilson], but he always comes when we’re in class or no one’s in the weight room,” Darnold said. “He tries to kind of avoid everyone … but I’m trying to this week before he leaves for camp. He’s one of the smartest quarterbacks in the league right now.” Spring Game Format Helton said Saturday’s spring game will focus more on in-game situations rather than simulating an actual game, due to the recent injuries the team has suffered. “We’re going to have to be able to play some situational football, very practice-like,” Helton said. “It will be live in a lot of the periods, [with] tackling to be able to see some young kids play in certain situations, but right now we’re just too limited to play a real live game.”USC’s spring game is scheduled to begin at noon on Saturday.last_img read more
