Barcelona Express Worry About La Liga Match In United States

Barcelona have withdrawn their wish to play a first ever La Liga game in the Unites States until all parties agree with the idea, the club announced on Monday. The Catalans are set to face Girona in Miami on January 29 but the Spanish football federation (RFEF), Spain’s professional footballers’ association as well as FIFA president Gianni Infantino have voiced their concerns. “The FC Barcelona Board of Directors have agreed to withdraw their disposal to play their game against Girona FC in Miami, after noting a lack of consensus over this proposal,” a statement on their website read.

“Barcelona were and remain willing to play a La Liga game in Miami, and accepted that income from the game would be shared amongst all Primera Division and Segunda Division clubs,” it added. 

The two clubs had signed a formal request from the league sent to the Spanish football federation to allow the fixture at the Hard Rock Stadium, which would be the maiden game as part of a 15-year project to play more Spanish league games in the USA.

Meanwhile, Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said on Monday that the club wants to “help” French winger Ousmane Dembele realise his potential, after the youngster’s latest disciplinary transgression.

The 21-year-old arrived two hours late for practice on Sunday and had to train alone and is now facing a disciplinary sanction from the La Liga champions.

“Something has happened that we are going to try to resolve internally, in the best possible way to help the player because he has a lot of talent,” Valverde said ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League game against Tottenham.

“What we want is to help him, because he’s young. He has a long career ahead of him, we want to get the best out of him, because we know when he feels good he can give us a lot.”

Watch: Dwayne Bravo

Dwayne Bravo, the stylist West Indies’ all-rounder, took the social media by a storm after one of his video came out in which he was seen dancing like a chicken before taking a catch in a T10 League match. The viral video, from the T10 League Eliminator Final match in Sharjah on Saturday, shows Dwayne Bravo‘s chicken-like celebration which continues after dismissing Afghanistan all-rounder Mohammad Nabi via caught and bowled. Bravo claimed four wickets and remained not out for 27 to guide Maratha Arabians to a seven-wicket win over Bengal Tigers in the eliminator match.

The 35-year-old Trinidad star had bowled just two overs, though it was enough for him to hog all the limelight with his flamboyancy.

However, the Arabians lost to Northern Warriors by 10 wickets in the second eliminator clash and later suffered a six-wicket loss to the Tigers in the third place play-off match on Sunday.

Bravo lost his wicket for just two runs and managed to claim just one wicket in Arabians’ defeat in the third place encounter at Sharjah.

In the final, Northern Warriors defeated Pakhtoons by 22 runs to lift their maiden title at the T10 League.

T10 League, the only internationally approved ten-over league in the world, is being hosted annually by the United Arab Emirates since 2017. Under the captaincy of Misbah-ul Haq, Kerala Kings had thrashed Punjabi Legends by eight wickets to win the inaugural edition of the league.

Ravichandran Ashwin Explains Why Virat Kohli Had To Bowl During Practice Match

As Indian bowlers struggled to make an impact in the practice match at the Sydney Cricket Ground, captain Virat Kohli came to the rescue and bowled a couple of overs with his unconventional right-arm medium fast bowling style. He delivered two overs and conceded just six runs to entertain the crowd both in and off the field. While many of his fans flooded social media with his videos, experienced spinner Ravichandran Ashwin acknowledged the skipper for “dishing out a lesson to all the bowlers”.

“I think he was just dishing out a lesson to all the bowlers on probably where we should bowl,” Ashwin jokingly said after the third day’s play.

The 32-year-old off-spinner, who has 336 Test wickets to his name, explained that Kohli’s spell came at the time when bowlers were tiring out and waiting for the second new ball.

“I think he just wanted to bowl a couple of overs. Because the bowlers were tiring out and before the second new ball came into play. That’s about it,” Ashwin added.

Kohli impressed one and all with his ‘part-time’ bowling in the third day of the four-day practice match against Cricket Australia XI on Friday. However, this remained the only amusing sight for the Indians on a tough day in Sydney.

After resuming the day from 24/0 against India’s first inning total of 358, opener D’Arcy Short gave the hosts a flying start on the penultimate day of the warm-up match. He top-scored for Australia with a 91-ball 74, which included as many as 11 boundaries.

Max Bryant (62), Harry Nielsen (56 not out) and Aaron Hardie (69 not out) supported Short as Australia concluded the day on 356/6, just two runs short of India’s total.

For India, Mohammed Shami claimed three wickets, while Umesh Yadav and Ashwin contributed with a wicket each.

Adding to India’s misery, teenage sensation Prithvi Shaw suffered an ankle injury after he landed awkwardly on his left leg while fielding early in the morning session. The 19-year-old opening batsman has been ruled out of the first Test in Adelaide.

Virat Kohli Bowls During Practice Match Against Cricket Australia XI. Watch Video

Virat Kohli, who has led India to victories single-handedly with his batting on various occasions, was seen bowling on the third day of the four-day practice match against Cricket Australia XI on Friday. Even though Kohli bowled just two overs, conceding six runs in total, cricket fans didn’t hesitate to heap praise upon the India captain. Some termed him India’s fourth seamer, while others called him a perfect all-rounder. Within no time, the fans flooded social media with the videos of Kohli bowling his signature right-arm medium-fast.

Seamer Mohammed Shami led the bowling attack and claimed three big wickets. Fast bowler Umesh Yadav and spinner Ravichandran Ashwin contributed with a wicket each as India restricted Cricket Australia to 356/6, just two runs short of India’s first innings total.

Earlier in the day, India suffered a major blow as teenage sensation Prithvi Shaw landed awkwardly on his left foot while fielding at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Shaw has been ruled out of the first Test in Adelaide due to a ligament ankle injury.

After having tied the three-match T20I series 1-1, India will face Australia in four-Test series, starting December 6 in Adelaide.

For Australia, opener D’Arcy Short scored noteworthy 74 runs off 91 balls, with the help of 11 boundaries. Max Bryant (62), Harry Nielsen (56 not out) and Aaron Hardie (69 not out) supported Short as the hosts dominated the day. Indian bowlers appeared helpless in the morning session as they conceded nearly six runs per over in the first hour of the play.

This isn’t the first time when Kohli bowled in a cricket match. The 30-year-old has eight international wickets to his name in the limited-over format. It would be interesting to see if India skipper decides to share the load of his bowlers in the upcoming Tests as well.

Sanjay Bangar Slams KL Rahul For Reckless Shot-Selection In Warm-Up Match

Team India’s much-awaited Test series against Australia is just a few days away but it seems that the form of KL Rahul still remains a conundrum for the visitors. Rahul, whose superb hundred against England at The Oval secured his place for the Test series Down Under, played a poor shot, driving on the up, to find mid-off in the sixth over of the day of India’s only practice match before the Test series. Five Indian batsmen struck half-centuries and enjoyed useful time in the middle after the rain swamped Sydney on Wednesday. However, Rahul remained India’s most notable failure. Facing an inexperienced attack containing a total of 36 first-class wickets with D’Arcy Short accounting for 16 of them, Rahul opened the batting with Prithvi Shaw but was dismissed by seamer Jackson Coleman for 3 runs with just 16 runs on the board. At close of play, India batting coach Sanjay Bangar addressed the media and it seemed that he is running out of patience with Rahul.

“He has been looking in good shape, including today, it is just that he is finding new ways to get out,” Bangar said.

“Even today, the ball was quite far and he played it away from his body and lost his wicket. But what we are reading is, he is playing the ball well and he is one hit away. We know his ability and if he converts that to performances then it is important for the team,” Bangar said.

“He is not a young player anymore and he is on his second tour here. He has played 30 Tests and he has a responsibility. We expect him to play with that responsibility and play his role for the team.”

After torrential rain washed out the opening day of play at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Wednesday, India were keen to get in the middle for some batting practice in their only game ahead of the four-Test series.

Impressive young opener Prithvi Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara, skipper Virat Kohli, Hanuma Vihari and Ajinkya Rahane all also managed half-centuries.

CA XI were on 24 without loss at stumps.

India will play Australia in the first Test of the four-match series, starting from December 6 in Adelaide.

India Make Perfect Start, Beat South Africa 5-0 In Their First Pool C Match

India started their Hockey World Cup 2018 campaign with a 5-0 win against South Africa in their first Pool C encounter at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar. The Manpreet Singh-led side dominated South Africa in all the four quarters of the game, as Mandeep Singh opened the scoring in the tenth minute of the first quarter. And as Akashdeep Singh scored India’s second goal in the 12th minute of the same quarter, South Africa lost their steam, eventually letting India score three more in the entire match.

The attacking mindset, which coach Harendra Singh had advocated before the start of the tournament, was visible on the field as the Indian players were not letting the ball slip out of their possession.

India were leading 2-0 by the end of the first half of the match.

In the initial stages of the third quarter, India missed a couple of chances. Nevertheless, India made a dominating comeback as they completely destroyed the winning hopes of South Africa by scoring two back-to-back goals in the 43rd and 45th minute of the match.

It was midfielder Simranjeet Singh and forward player Lalit Upadhyay who showed quick reflexes in the field to strike the consecutive goals.

Simranjeet looked unstoppable on the field and continued to tear apart the weak defence of the South African side scoring another goal in the fourth quarter to make it 5-0 in India’s favour.

India kept on attacking the opposition’s goal post till the final hooter.

A solid attack, quality defence, and a controlled game helped India register a convincing win over South Africa in their first Group match.

Simranjeet Singh was adjudged Man of the Match, who scored two goals for his side.

India will play their next group stage match on December 2 against Belgium.

No Match For Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone’s Dance Moves To Gallan Goodiyan And Govinda’s Songs

New Delhi: 

Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh had a blast at Saturday’s party, which was hosted by the actor sister Ritika Bhavnani. Ranveer got the party started with a cute little speech, in which he addressed Deepika and said: “We are here to celebrate what will be an epic future, baby, you and me!” Then he pointed out how the dance floor looks way too empty and made up his mind to set it ablaze. Joining him on the dance floor was obviously new bride Deepika. The party playlist was an interesting mix ranging from Nineties’ songs from Govinda’s films and The Throwdown Mix (Hits Medley) to Ranveer’s Gallan Goodiyan and Deepika’s Lungi Dance.

The guests clearly made way for the couple to hit the dance floor when Ranveer and Deepika coordinated their moves to the peppy Gallan Goodiyan. While Deepika appeared to tone down after a while, there was to stopping Ranveer, who also let his hair down to Govinda’s Coolie No.1 son Main To Raste Se Jaa Raha Tha. At one point, the host of the party was also seen grooving to Lungi Dance.

But there’s truly no match for Ranveer and Deepika on the dance floor:











Meanwhile, don’t miss out on Ranveer’s heart-felt speech for Deepika, in which he says: “I married the most beautiful girl in the world!”



Saturday’s party looked like a friends-only bash, which was attended by the couple’s respective team of stylists and managers and closest friends. Deepika’s hairstylist Gabriel Georgiou let us in on a few photos from the bash while Ranveer’s friend Shanoo Sharma also shared a few glimpses.



Meanwhile, Deepika and Ranveer’s dance moves reminded us of the priceless photos of the couple from their mehendi ceremony in Italy’s Lake Como. At the event, Ranveer reportedly made a dramatic entry to Tune Maari Entriyan from Gunday while Harshdeep Kaur reportedly got the wedding party to Punjabi tracks such as Mehendi Hai Rachney Wali and Kala Shah Kala.





Ranveer and Deepika will continue their festivities with two more events – a Mumbai reception is scheduled for November 28 while a party is said to be hosted later on December 1.

Match Called Off Due To Rain

India vs Australia 2nd T20I Highlights: Match Called Off Due To Rain

Highlights, India vs Australia 2nd T20I: The match was called off due to rain. © AFP

The second T20I between India and Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground was called off due to incessant rain. India captain Virat Kohli had won the toss and invited the hosts to bat. The Indian bowlers restricted Australia to a moderate 132/7 in 19 overs when rain halted play. After many erratic rain spells, the Australian innings was forced to end and India were given a revised DLS target of 137 in 19 overs. However, rain did not let the match resume. By virtue of this abandonment, Australia still have a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. (SCORECARD)

Earlier, Indian pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2/20) and Khaleel Ahmed (2/39) made full use of the overcast conditions, rattling the Australian top order. Bhuvneshwar dismissed Aaron Finch (0) in the first over with an away swinger. Chris Lynn (13) got off to a good start but then played a poor shot. Opener D’Arcy Short followed Lynn soon, leaving his side reeling at 37/3. Marcus Stoinis also departed cheaply, putting Australia further into trouble. Glenn Maxwell (19) and Ben McDermott tried to steady the Australian innings but the former got out trying to up the scoring rate. Towards the end, Nathan Coulter-Nile (20 off 9 balls) and Ben McDermott (32 not out) played handy knocks, helping their team post a fighting total. For India, it was a combined bowling effort as all the bowlers chipped in with wickets at regular intervals. Apart from Bhuvneshwar and Khaleel, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav and Krunal Pandya bagged a wicket apiece
