Without Steve Smith And David Warner, Australia Are Like India Without Virat Kohli And Rohit Sharma, Says Sourav Ganguly


Former India captain Sourav Ganguly has made an astute observation before India embark on the Australia tour. The Cricket Association of Bengal president said the absence of Steve Smith and David Warner in the Australian team is tantamount to India not having Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in their ranks. “It’s a huge factor. This is like the Indian team not having Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli,” said Ganguly, further saying that this is India’s best chance to win a Test series in Australia, keeping in view their bowling attack.

“It’s a great moment for Indian cricket. This is their best opportunity to beat Australia. India are a good side and have good bowling attack. I have seen in England that they (bowlers) have taken 20 wickets in every test. But you also have to keep in mind that Australia in Australia are a different kettle of fish. Many feel that they are a weak outfit but I don’t think so,” the 46-year old added.

The Australian Cricketers Association (ACA) had made a submission to Cricket Australia at the start of the month to lift the ban on Australian captain Smith and vice-captain Warner. But indications are that they are not ready to bring the trio (Cameron Bancroft included) back to international cricket early. Therefore, there seems little hope they will play Test cricket before March 29 when the ban on them ends.

India play four Tests starting December 6 at Adelaide Oval. India’s best result Down Under was 1-1 in 2003-04 series under Ganguly.

Asked about Kohli’s ‘leave India’ comment to a fan, Ganguly said, “I would not like to comment on that. It’s not necessary to react to each and every comment.”

Ganguly also hinted that India pacer Mohammed Shami has expressed his desire to play for Bengal in the next Ranji Trophy game against Kerala. “Shami has wanted to play. If he plays it’s good for the Bengal side. We had written a letter before the first match as well to play him but he had few fitness issues for which he had to go to rehabilitation. If he plays, it’s great.”

Highlights

  • Kapil Sharma can’t stop gushing about food from Amritsar
  • The true-blue Punjabi loves the food from his hometown Amritsar
  • Kapil Sharma posted pictures of parathas with homemade butter

Actor-comedian Kapil Sharma is all set to tie the knot with his girlfriend Ginni Chatrath in December this year. The TV comedy show host has made his excitement for the impending wedding quite public, saying in interviews that he is ecstatic to be getting married to Chatrath and that the marriage will be a welcome change in his life. The cheerful lad belongs to Amritsar in Punjab and like any true blue Punjabi, he loves his Punjabi grub. Sharma has 11 million followers on Instagram and he often shares enticing pictures of delicious dishes from his home town, much to the delight of his foodie fans. From decadent-looking street foods to Punjabi staple flat bread paratha with lassi, you can spot it all on Kapil Sharma’s Instagram page. It seems like Sharma is a die-hard foodie at heart and we can obviously relate to his love for food as well!

Recently, Kapil Sharma posted a series of posts about the various foodie delights that Amritsar has to offer. From poori chhole, Amritsari kulche, gol gappe and gur (jaggery) ka halwa to ghee ka paratha with homemade butter, Kapil Sharma sampled it all, and from the looks of it, he can’t stop gushing over all these toothsome dishes.

Doesn’t it all look oh-so heavenly? Especially with the nip in the air, very few of us are able to resist the charms of homemade butter with piping hot and crispy parathas, fresh off the griddle. Parathas with homemade butter are a popular choice of breakfast in regions across North India and with good reason. All those delicious carbs and greasy fats are needed to brace our bodies for the harsh cold during winters. And then, if there’s the added oomph of fresh home-churned curd and some lassi to go with the paratha, who minds the alarming number of calories that go with the meal? Certainly not us! Well looks like Kapil Sharma agrees. Life is short guys- smatter your parathas with butter generously.

Rohit Sharma Handled His Troops Admirably During India’s Sweep Against Windies, Says VVS Laxman


With Virat Kohli rested, Rohit Sharma led India to a 3-0 clean sweep against the West Indies in the three-match T20I series. Leading by example, Rohit scored a century, his fourth in the shortest format, in the second T20I, which India won by 71 runs in Lucknow. Watching him lead the men-in-blue to victory with dominance, former India batsman VVS Laxman couldn’t resist heaping praises on the 31-year-old Mumbai batsman.

“I was again mightily impressed with Rohit’s captaincy. He is becoming a semiregular at the job, especially in T20 cricket, and handled his troops admirably,” Laxman wrote in a column for The Times of India.

In the third and final T20I in Chennai on Sunday, India rode on impressive fifties by Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant to beat the Windies by six wickets in a last ball thriller. With this, they clinched the three-match series 3-0 and Rohit became the only Indian to have led his team to a 3-0 T20I whitewash twice. Earlier, Rohit had led India to a 3-0 clean sweep against Sri Lanka in December last year.

Hailing the regular vice-captain for his grit, Laxman added: “He is proactive on the field and has clear plans, but isn’t afraid to improvise. He also continued to bat beautifully, and his fourth T20I hundred in Lucknow was one for the ages. I have seen few batsmen combine power and elegance with such nonchalance.”

India have registered three such T20I whitewashes in their history of cricket. Apart from Rohit’s double delight; former India captain MS Dhoni once led the nation to 3-0 clean sweep against Australia in 2016.

Having led India in 12 matches, Rohit has been the best in the business. He has won 11 matches and lost just one so far in his career as captain. On the second place, Pakistan’s Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed, Australia’s Michael Clarke and Asghar Stanikzai of Afghanistan, all had 10 wins from their first 12 T20Is.

With 2207 runs to his name from 87 matches, Rohit is the second highest run-scorer in T20 International cricket. He is just 64 runs short of New Zealand batsman Martin Guptill’s tally of 2271 T20I runs. India skipper Kohli is on the fifth place with 2102 runs in 62 matches.

UP Minister Shrikant Sharma Says Ayodhya May Be Declared Pilgrimage


Faizabad has been recently renamed as Ayodhya. (File)

Lucknow:

Rohit Sharma Rues MS Dhoni’s Absence From T20I Team


After the clean sweep over the Windies, Rohit Sharma rued Dhoni’s absence from the team, saying that the former captain not being part of any team was “a big miss”.

“MS (Dhoni) was not part of the Nidahas Trophy in Sri Lanka also. MS not being in any team is a big miss. His presence in the team itself is a huge boost for a lot of the players, not just me, especially the younger players,” said Rohit Sharma.

According to chief selector MSK Prasad, Dhoni’s T20I career is not over and the decision to leave him out was made to shore up back-up options behind the stumps.

India have played a total of 107 T20I matches since the format’s debut in 2006 and Dhoni has been part of 93 of those matches. Dhoni, who led India to the T20 World Cup title in 2007, has scored 1,487 T20I runs at an average of 37.17 and a strike-rate of 127.90.

Dhoni has hit two half-centuries and also has 54 catches and 33 stumpings to his name in T20 international cricket.

The former India captain in not part of the T20I team but has made it to the ODI squad for the Australia tour.

With the culmination of the Windies series, the focus will now shift to the daunting tour Down Under.

Rohit Sharma said it was important for Shikhar Dhawan to return to form ahead of the crucial tour of Australia, which will be a completely “different ball game”.

Dhawan, who struggled throughout the preceding ODI series against West Indies, returned to form with a smashing 92 off 62 balls to help India beat the visitors by six wickets in the final T20I.

Dhawan and young Rishabh Pant (53 off 25) stitched 130 runs off 80 balls for the third wicket on Sunday to lay the foundation for the win after India were in a spot of bother at 45 for 2 while chasing 182.

“It was important from the team’s perspective and for the players to get some runs ahead of the important Australia tour. Shikhar especially was batting well in the ODI series but he was not able to get big scores. I am glad that he could play a match-winning knock and get some form under his belt before the crucial tour,” Rohit said.

“Rishabh was also hungry to go out and get some runs. It was the perfect situation. We were two down inside the first six overs. There was a bit of pressure as well. They handled it well and it was a match-winning partnership. It is important in the team’s perspective that both these guys got runs,” he said.

India’s tour of Australia starts with the three-match T20I series in Brisbane on November 21.
