  3. Delhi Capitals (DC) did themselves a big favour when they traded Shikhar Dhawan from Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL) Auctions. Carrying on his momentum from the last game against Mumbai Indians (MI), Dhawan went on to score a thrilling half-century in the second match itself against the mighty Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Being the only one to score big in the team, the left-hander piled up 51 runs out of the 147 of the team. Getting some assistance from Prithvi Shaw at the beginning, followed by Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant in the later stages, 'Gabbar' moulded his innings to perfection to aid the home side. View this post on Instagram Patient. Determined. Responsible That was @shikhardofficial today for the @delhicapitals as he notched up his 33rd #VIVOIPL half century ð A post shared by IPL (@iplt20) on Mar 26, 2019 at 9:01am PDT Despite the loss, DC will be delighted as most of their top-order batsman appear in good form, unlike the previous seasons. Whether it was Pant and Colin Ingram in the opening match or Dhawan and Shaw in last night's encounter, Delhi's top-order looks in ominous form. Thanks to his fifty against CSK, Dhawan (94 runs) climbed to the second spot in the race for the 'Orange Cap', which is currently donned by his teammate Pant who leads the list with 103 runs to his name. With the arrival of iconic Ricky Ponting as the coach and legendary Saurav Ganguly as Team Advisor, a new-look Delhi looks is slowly, yet steadily establishing themselves as serious contenders this season.

  5. The Indian cricket team has been hogging the limelight amid their ongoing tour of England. After a 2-1 win in T20Is and a 1-2 loss in the ODI series, Virat Kohli and his men now gear up for the much-anticipated five-match Test duel, slated to begin from 1st August in Edgbaston. But, while there has been a lot of focus on the form of the visiting team, an Indian cricketer recently stole the limelight on the back of a memorable performance. Indian women cricketer Smriti Mandhana elated her fans and would have surely made her male counterparts proud, after smashing a joint-fastest fifty in the history of women's T20 cricket. Playing for Western Storm in a rain-curtailed six-over-a-side match in the ongoing KIA Super League, the Indian opener went hammer and tongs at the Loughborough Lightning bowling attack, to notch up her fifty in mere 18 deliveries. In the process, the 22-year-old equaled the record of New Zealand's Sophie Devine who achieved the feat against India in 2015. 52* | Five fours | Four sixes | 19 balls - @mandhana_smriti ð± ð¥ Highlights as @WesternStormKSL beat Loughborough Lightning: https://t.co/G6F2do8HS4 pic.twitter.com/vOuDjkBZbn — England and Wales Cricket Board (@ECB_cricket) July 29, 2018 Mandhana, who became the first Indian to play in England's premier women's domestic T20 tournament, slammed five fours and four sixes to remain unbeaten at 52 off just 19 balls, as her side Storm amassed a total of 85 runs at the loss of two wickets. Coincidentally, Devine was also playing in the match - for Loughborough - and scored an unbeaten 46. But, she couldn't avert a defeat for her side who fell short by 18 runs. It wasn't really surprising to see her artistry with the willow taking the social media by storm, but it was Sri Lankan veteran Kumar Sangakkara who made Mandhana's day. This just made my day. A big fan girl moment for me. Can't express how glad and overwhelmed I am. This memory is going to stay with me forever ðð #blessed #grateful #Legend #thebest A post shared by Smriti Mandhana (@smriti_mandhana) on Jul 29, 2018 at 10:15am PDT After impressing everyone on the field, Mandhana gracefully endured the 'fan moment' when she got an opportunity to meet Sangakkara. The Indian southpaw clicked a picture with her role model and then shared it on Instagram with the caption: "This just made my day. A big fangirl moment for me. Can't express how glad and overwhelmed I am. This memory is going to stay with me forever”. Watching @mandhana_smriti putting bowlers to the sword here at Taunton. She is brilliant to watch. Great ambassador and great skill — Kumar Sangakkara (@KumarSanga2) July 29, 2018 Sangakkara, who was present at the ground where Mandhana recorded her feat, also took to Twitter and praised the Indian cricketer. "Watching @mandhana_smriti putting bowlers to the sword here at Taunton. She is brilliant to watch. Great ambassador and great skill," his tweet read.
  6. Javeria Khan. Photo: ICC A record-breaking fifty by Javeria Khan helped Pakistan Women clinch a thrilling win in the first T20 international against Sri Lanka Women in Colombo on Wednesday. Pakistan chased down Sri Lanka?s total of 129 to register their highest chase in the shortest format of the game. Javeria Khan smashed the fastest T20I fifty by a Pakistani woman, scoring 52 off 36 balls to dominate the chase. She was helped along by skipper Bismah Maroof, who put up a brisk 42 off 31 balls. No. 11 Ghulam Fatima, on her T20I debut, hit a boundary on the penultimate ball of the chase to seal the win. For Sri Lanka, Anushka Sanjeewani scored her maiden T20 half-century (58-ball 61). Veteran off-spinner Sana Mir and pacer Diana Baig picked up two wickets each. Pakistan clean swept Sri Lanka 3-0 in the recently concluded ODI series during the ongoing tour.
  7. During his playing days, Virender Sehwag was undeniably a force to be reckoned with. His unorthodox batting technique allowed him to hammer the opposition bowlers all around the park. And, even after calling time on his career, Sehwag continues to be a dominant force on social media with his wit and humour. But, while he may have retired from international cricket, Sehwag clearly hasn't forgotten the art of batting. His genius with the willow was once again on full display during the unique Ice Cricket tournament in Switzerland. Taking on Shahid Afridi-led Royals XI, the 'Nawab of Najafgarh' turned back the clock and took the fans to his yesteryears where he once reigned supreme. Despite the bone-chilling conditions in the backdrop of breathtaking Alpine range in the resort town of St Moritz, the 39-year-old created a unique record of scoring the first four and six of the first of its kind tournament. And, if that wasn't enough, Sehwag went on to etch his name in the history books as the first-ever cricketer to score a fifty in the Ice Cricket tournament. There was a reason why 90's people used to say - "Sehwag ki batting dekh kar chalte hain" @virendersehwag ðªðª#IceCricket pic.twitter.com/i1j41KezwD — Prashant Pareek (@prashan235) February 8, 2018 After deciding to bat first, Palace Diamonds got off to a roaring start, following a flabbergasting rendition of masterful strokeplay by their captain Sehwag who smashed a 31-ball 62 including four majestic fours and five towering sixes. In the end, it was his old nemesis Shoaib Akhtar who put an end to Sehwag's blazing innings. Hathiyar chhode hain ,chalana nahi bhoole hain :) Great fun on the ice. pic.twitter.com/V1bjFATGnI — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) February 8, 2018 Following his outing in temperatures below zero degrees, Sehwag took to Twitter and posted a brilliant one-liner about his knock. "Hathiyar chhode hain ,chalana nahi bhoole hain :) Great fun on the ice," he tweeted. @virendersehwag .. kya baat kaha Viru... — Sourav Ganguly (@SGanguly99) February 8, 2018 The post garnered a massive response from the fans and it even evoked a response from Sourav Ganguly. Impressed with Viru's comment, Ganguly replied: "kya baat kaha Viru". Here's what the twitterverse had to say after witnessing Sehwag back in action: Kya baat hai Paji..sher toh sher hai. Shikar karna nahi bhulega — Vasim Kadri (@KadriVasim) February 8, 2018 Aap kaha bhul sakte ho aap to run rate k bazigar ho — Rohan yadav (@Rohanyadav16) February 8, 2018 Virender Sehwag is a special man. first 4⣠of the tournament first 6⣠of the tournament And first 5â£0⣠of the tournament all are done by him.

  8. Who says he can?t celebrate his batting in his world-famous style as well? We are used to seeing Hasan Ali do his trademark celebration after ripping through opponents? wickets. Hasan Ali's trademark celebration But today, he smashed New Zealand?s bowlers all over the park to reach his highest ODI score of 51 (off 31 balls), in the second Pakistan vs New Zealand ODI in Nelson. And, of course, that warranted a memorable celebration. Batting or bowling, Hasan Ali loves his style. So do his fans. This is how he celebrated his fifty against New Zealand in Nelson, January 9, 2018/Getty Images Needless to say, his trademark celebration looked as awesome as when he does it while bowling. Watch it here: Fans couldn't get enough of it. Even the ICC couldn't resist. Celebration goals, indeed.
  9. Peruvian emergency workers on Wednesday said they had recovered 50 bodies -- six of them children -- from a horrific bus crash over a cliff north of the capital Lima. Photo: AFP LIMA: Peruvian emergency workers on Wednesday said they had recovered 50 bodies -- six of them children -- from a horrific bus crash over a cliff north of the capital Lima. The coach had plunged around 100 meters (330 feet) over a seaside cliff in Peru on Tuesday after a collision with a truck on a precarious stretch known as the "devil´s curve." It had been travelling from Huacho, 130 kilometers (80 miles) north of the capital, to Lima with 55 passengers registered and two crew on board. The vehicle landed upside down on rocks at the edge of the sea. "We have finished the painful task of recovering the bodies. Fifty bodies have been recovered from the accident," the regional head of Lima´s health service, Felic Palomo, told radio station RPP. "They have been identified by their next of kin," he said. The latest toll was higher than the 48 deaths previously given by the interior ministry. Efforts to get at the bodies were suspended Tuesday night because the tide had risen and reached the bus, the police said. More than 200 workers from the police, army and navy took part in the rescue and recovery effort. A police helicopter had to winch some rescue workers to the wreck of the blue bus while others made the precarious journey down on foot with the assistance of ropes. Crews were still at the scene to ascertain whether any more bodies remained in the crushed bus. There were six survivors, all injured. But most on board perished. One passenger, Maximo Jimenez, 24, saved himself by jumping through a window on the bus just as he saw it careen off the road. He suffered a broken arm and took himself to the hospital in a taxi, according to doctors who treated him. Perilous road Dino Escudero, head of the traffic police, told reporters that a crane was being brought in to haul up the wrecked bus. Other officials said that would permit an inspection to see if anyone had been crushed underneath. "Hopefully there will be no other bodies," said a police commander, Victor Rucoba. President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski wrote on Twitter that "it is very painful to suffer an accident of this magnitude." He expressed his sympathies with the relatives of those killed. Maria Elena Aguilar, director of Alcides Carrion Hospital in El Callao, said her facility received five patients with multiple injuries. The accident took place on a coastal highway about 45 kilometers north of the capital Lima, said Colonel Dino Escudero, head of the police highway patrol division. The Pasamayo highway on which the tragedy occurred is only used by trucks and buses, as cars travel a different route. It is a dangerous sea-hugging road where fog is frequent and high humidity can make the roadway slippery. The bus driver had a lot of experience and was working with an assistant, said Luis Martinez, a representative of Transportes San Martin de Porres, which owned the bus. Martinez could not confirm whether the driver had been killed or injured, but added that the bus underwent a mechanical check before leaving Huacho. More than 2,600 people died in traffic accidents in Peru in 2016, according to the latest available official figures.
  10. A fat paycheck, dimples and six-pack abs might make most men look like they've stepped straight out of a list of ‘The Most Eligible Bachelors In The World', but what makes a guy (read: you) truly attractive? The answer is, how you treat (and respect) women every day. © AA Films Sure, you might be averse to rape jokes, fight for #GenderEquality campaigns online, listen to Beyoncé's ‘Run The World (Girls)' on loop, or stand up for your women friends when they are being harassed at the bar, but then again, that's so 2012. Sometimes, all it takes is a single statement to be an asshole – it's like using #NotAllMen at the end of your tweet – you've literally proved your douchiness in 140 characters or less. Want to know whether you make the cut? Whether you call yourself a feminist on Facebook or are a guy who simply enjoys helping around at home, if you go ahead and say any one of these fifty sexist (or sometimes, misogynistic) things to (or around) a woman, you are probably getting it wrong: 1. ‘Are you sure you can handle that?' 2. ‘You are really funny for a girl!' 3. ‘Wow! You really need to calm your tits!' 4. ‘Okay, there's no reason to start crying about this now, alright?' 5. ‘Will you stop being so dramatic!' 6. ‘Is it that time of the month already?' 7. ‘Are you like, a feminist? Does that mean you hate all men?' 8. ‘Girls don't talk like that.' 9. ‘You aren't looking to get married? That's intense. But wait, are your parents okay with that?' 10. ‘What do you mean you don't know how to cook?' 11. ‘It's got nothing to do with the fact that you are a woman, but I really don't trust your driving skills,' 12. ‘Hold on, when I say that all women are like that, I obviously wasn't talking about you. I was just talking about women in general…' 13. ‘You'd look so beautiful if you just tried a little harder,' 14. ‘ You have got to stop being such an attention whore!' 15. ‘Gross, what kind of girl wants to gain muscle?' 16. ‘What sort of mother leaves her child at home with a nanny? It's such a first world thing to do' 17. ‘I mean, she's sexy, but she's not the kind of girl I'd take home to meet my mom, you know what I mean?' 18. ‘I am not saying she asked for it, or this isn't a stance that supports rape, but why can't women just dress more appropriately when they are out partying late in the night?' 19. ‘How can she be such a bitch at work, dude? I bet she hasn't been getting any…' 20. ‘Whoa, you need to hold on with those drinks, lady!' 21. ‘You're pretty strong for a girl… do you do pull ups at the gym?' 22. ‘Don't mind, but don't you think that your dress is a little too low. Would you be safe going back home later in the night like that?' 23. ‘Wait a minute, what do you really know about football?' 24. ‘Okay, jokes aside, which of the main characters from *** And The City do you most identify with?' 25. 'I am sure she got the promotion because she was sleeping with the boss…' 26. ‘Have you thought about going on a diet?' 27. ‘Have you thought about putting your name down on a matrimonial site?' 28. ‘...But what about men's rights?' 29. ‘What do you mean pink is not your favourite colour?' 30. ‘hy! Wanna b ma frend?' 31. ‘Who takes women's cricket seriously, yaar? I am Team Virat!' 32. ‘Such a beautiful woman like you doesn't deserve to be alone at a bar, so how about I buy you a drink right now?' 33. ‘Don't you want to do something about those stretch marks?' 34. ‘My boss is such a ball-buster, man…I am sure she has her husband whipped at home,' 35. ‘So much drama, man! She must be on her periods….' 36. ‘It's women like her that give women all over the world a bad name, no?' 37. ‘Yes, yes, that's all very good, but what I honestly feel would work for this situation right now is that….' 38. ‘Whoa! Did you see the jugs on that one?' 39. ‘It's just my opinion, but I think that women are their own enemies…' 40. ‘Are you really going to teach me how to play Call Of Duty? No thanks!' 41. ‘Does your boyfriend know you are going out dressed like that?' 42. ‘You must have been such a pretty girl when you were younger…' 43. ‘What are you doing at the gym? Shouldn't you be at home watching Keeping Up With Kardashians or something?' 44. ‘Wow! I didn't know girls could abuse like that!' 45. ‘See, when I told you to ‘go make me a sandwich', I was obviously joking, where's your sense of humour, yaar?' 46. ‘If you can't make round rotis, you are failing as a woman….' 47. Are you really going to have that steak all by yourself? Shouldn't you be having something healthier? Like a salad? 48. ‘Listen, this might sound awkward, but you might want to cover up a bit…your bra strap is showing…' 49. ‘I am telling you, boys will be boys, and you should just get used to it…' 50. ‘You make more than your husband? He must be such a great guy!' Feel like you've said more than half of these to all the important women in your life? Are you hanging your head in shame? Reaching out for your phones to apologize to all your (girl) friends? Writing out a ‘love you' text to your mom? That's great. Now let it sink in as you go make yourself a sandwich.
  11. <p>In a team full of proven stars and youth icons, young Hardik Pandya is slowly and gradually carving his own niche. His aggressive batting, skillful bowling and electric fielding has already made him one of the vital cogs in the Indian cricket team.</p> <p>A regular face in limited-overs cricket for the Indian side, Pandya has time and again showcased what he is capable of through sublime performances. He proved his worth in the T20I against Bangladesh during the World T20 last year where he snatched a crucial win from the jaws of defeat for India, while in the Champions Trophy final against Pakistan, his blistering knock almost got Men in Blue over the line.</p> <p class="articleimg"><img id="ed-img" class="art-lazy imwidth-full" title="Hardik Pandya's Blazing Fifty On Test Debut Proves He's Here To Stay" src="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/hardik-pandya-a-blistering-fifty-on-test-debut-proves-this-baroda-boy-is-here-to-stay-740x400-1-1501166521.jpg" alt="Hardik Pandya's Blazing Fifty On Test Debut Proves He's Here To Stay" data-original="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/hardik-pandya-a-blistering-fifty-on-test-debut-proves-this-baroda-boy-is-here-to-stay-740x400-1-1501166521.jpg" />© Reuters</p> <p>Such has been his exploits that every time Pandya walks out in the middle, he is expected to produce something incredible. He has undeniably ticked all the boxes of filling in the void of an all-rounder that the Indian team has rued for a long time. It was on the back of his short, yet already influential limited-overs career that eventually earned the Baroda cricketer a place in the Test side.</p> <p dir="ltr" lang="en">Proud moment for young <a href="https://twitter.com/hardikpandya7">@hardikpandya7</a> as he is all set to make his Test debut <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TeamIndia?src=hash">#TeamIndia</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/SLvIND?src=hash">#SLvIND</a> <a href="https://t.co/YTGTzQ0Z4y">pic.twitter.com/YTGTzQ0Z4y</a></p> — BCCI (@BCCI) <a href="https://twitter.com/BCCI/status/890063957549076480">July 26, 2017</a> <p>It must've been a moment of great pride for Pandya when he received his maiden Test cap from captain Virat Kohli ahead of the first Test between India and Sri Lanka at Galle. But, while Kohli backed the youngster to come good, many were left wondering if it was too early to bring a limited-overs specialist like Pandya in the longest format.</p> <p>But, contrary to popular perception, Pandya wasted no time in unleashing a batting performance that has now caught the attention of bigwigs in cricket. The right-hander began his Test career with a blazing half-century, taking the Lankan bowlers to the cleaners at will.</p> <p class="articleimg"><img id="ed-img" class="art-lazy imwidth-500" title="Hardik Pandya's Blazing Fifty On Test Debut Proves He's Here To Stay" src="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/hardik-pandya-a-blistering-fifty-on-test-debut-proves-this-baroda-boy-is-here-to-stay-740x400-2-1501166554.jpg" alt="Hardik Pandya's Blazing Fifty On Test Debut Proves He's Here To Stay" data-original="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/hardik-pandya-a-blistering-fifty-on-test-debut-proves-this-baroda-boy-is-here-to-stay-740x400-2-1501166554.jpg" />© AP</p> <p>Coming in to bat at No. 8 with India carefully place at 495/7, the 23-year-old accelerated the innings to ensure his side reached the mammoth total of 600 in the first innings. He was part of the crucial 62-run stand with Mohammed Shami who gave adequate support to the Indian all-rounder at the other end.</p> <p>Pandya smoked three sixes - most by an Indian batsman on Test debut - and five fours in his 49-ball knock, cutting a sorry figure for the opposition bowlers. While Pandya was throwing the kitchen sink, Shami also joined the party in his run-a-ball 30.</p> <p class="articleimg"><img id="ed-img" class="art-lazy imwidth-full" title="Hardik Pandya's Blazing Fifty On Test Debut Proves He's Here To Stay" src="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/hardik-pandya-a-blistering-fifty-on-test-debut-proves-this-baroda-boy-is-here-to-stay-740x400-3-1501166584.jpg" alt="Hardik Pandya's Blazing Fifty On Test Debut Proves He's Here To Stay" data-original="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/hardik-pandya-a-blistering-fifty-on-test-debut-proves-this-baroda-boy-is-here-to-stay-740x400-3-1501166584.jpg" />© AP</p> <p>From stealing runs with ease to shifting gears at regular intervals, Pandya's innings was a reflection of what he has been able to do convincingly in limited-overs cricket. But, most importantly, it was his ability to pull away the short deliveries with ease that impressed us all.</p> <p>Thanks to his late onslaught, India romped to their fifth 600-plus total since December 2016. All those totals have come in the last eight Tests they have played. Prior to that, India hadn't scored a total of 600 runs for 47 Tests.</p> <p class="articleimg"><img id="ed-img" class="art-lazy imwidth-full" title="Hardik Pandya's Blazing Fifty On Test Debut Proves He's Here To Stay" src="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/hardik-pandya-a-blistering-fifty-on-test-debut-proves-this-baroda-boy-is-here-to-stay-740x400-4-1501166602.jpg" alt="Hardik Pandya's Blazing Fifty On Test Debut Proves He's Here To Stay" data-original="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/hardik-pandya-a-blistering-fifty-on-test-debut-proves-this-baroda-boy-is-here-to-stay-740x400-4-1501166602.jpg" />© AP</p> <p>For a Baroda boy who fought all odds to realise his childhood dream, Pandya has surely come a long way to cement his place in the Indian side. And, for the sake of Indian cricket and his fans, let's hope that the journey of this youngster in the longest format is equally decorated as his career in limited-overs cricket.</p> <p></p>
  12. While the men's team failed to lift the ICC Champions Trophy, the Indian women's cricket team kick-started their 2017 World Cup campaign with an astounding win over England at County Ground in Derby. While India secured a comprehensive 35-run victory, it was skipper Mithali Raj who eteched her name in the history books with yet another personal feat. Put in to bat, the Indian team got off to a brilliant start with both the openers Punam Raut (86) and Smriti Mandhana (90) providing a 144-run stand to their side. Their partnership was eventually broken by Heather Knight who got Mandhana out caught by Danielle Hazell in the 27th over. While England would've fancied a comeback after Mandhana's dismissal, they were soon left bearing the brunt of Mithali's blazing willow. The Indian captain slammed a 73-ball 71 including eight boundaries to keep the scoreboard ticking for her side. A seventh consecutive fifty for the @BCCIWomen skipper, Mithali Raj! 🇮🇳 ➡️ https://t.co/zAcLPQA9Tu #ENGvIND #WWC17 pic.twitter.com/vqD4BAA8t1 — Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 24, 2017 It was Mithali's seventh consecutive half-century, bettering the likes of Lindsay Reeler (Australia), Ellyse Perry (Australia) and Charlotte Edwards (England), all of whom slammed six back-to-back fifties each in the past. In her last seven ODIs including this one against England, Mithali has scored - 71 vs England, 62* vs South Africa, 54 vs South Africa, 51* vs South Africa, 73* vs Bangladesh, 64 vs South Africa and 70* vs Sri Lanka. Also, this is Mithali's 47 ODI fifty, which is also the highest in women's cricket history. Meanwhile, the India skipper is also just 148 runs away from becoming the first women's cricketer ever to slam 6000 ODI runs. Superb batting performance by the @BCCIWomen's team! Keep it up @SmritiMandhana, Poonam Raut and @RajMithali — sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) June 24, 2017 Thanks to her blitz alongside the fifties from Mandhana and Raut, India managed to post a competitve total of 281 runs at the loss of just three wickets in 50 overs. In reply, England fell short by 35 runs before being bowled out in 47.3 overs. Fran Wilson (81) and Heather Knight (46) tried to get England's chase on track, but both of them got run-out thanks to some brlliance in the field by India. With figures of 3-47, off-spinner Deepti Sharma turned out to be the most effective bowler for India. Seamer Shikha Pandey, too, impressed with her tally of two wickets at the expense of 35 runs.

  13. Tamim Iqbal plays a shot/Reuters LONDON: A sure-footed fifty by opener Tamim Iqbal stabilised Bangladesh after Australian pace attack struck early in a must-win clash for Bangladesh at The Oval on Monday. Bangladesh earlier won the toss and chose to bat first against two-time Champions Trophy winners Australia. Bangladesh lost to England in the tournament opener last week, while Australia shared points with New Zealand after their match was washed out by rain. The last completed ODI match between Australia and Bangladesh was held over six years ago, as their World Cup tie in 2015 was washed out. Squads Australia Bangladesh
  14. Tamim Iqbal celebrates his fifty/REUTERS LONDON: Tamim Iqbal powered Bangladesh past 150 with a sure-footed half century which saw the hosts struggling to get wickets in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 opener at The Oval on Thursday. England were handed their first breakthrough by all-rounder Ben Stokes who broke Bangladesh's opening stand at 56-1 with Soumya Sarkar's wicket. Liam Plunkett claimed Imrul Kayes' wicket next, reducing Bangladesh to 95-2. But the tourists were stabilised by some power-hitting from Tamim, who was helped along by wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim. Bangladesh started off cautiously against the hosts' bowling attack, after England won the toss and asked Mashrafe Mortaza's side to bat first. Sarkar was given a new life earlier when Moeen Ali dropped a sitter off Jake Ball's delivery. England have been transformed since their dismal World Cup performance two years ago, with their power batting making them even more formidable in their own conditions. But a determined Bangladesh, after an absence of more than 10 years, have made a welcome return to the Champions Trophy ranked sixth, above both Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Both teams feature several survivors from Bangladesh´s 15-run shock win at Adelaide which condemned England to a woeful first-round exit from the last World Cup. It was a result that led England to completely revamp their approach to the white-ball game. ?We´re getting better too? Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza, although accepting England were a far better side than the one his team knocked out of the 2015 World Cup, insisted the Tigers had improved too ahead of their Champions Trophy opener. Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza during a press conference on the eve of Champions Trophy opener against England/AFP "We just recently beat New Zealand in Ireland," Mortaza told reporters at The Oval on Wednesday. It was some encouragement for Bangladesh after a 2016/17 tour of New Zealand where they were beaten in all formats. "We couldn´t win any matches, but the thing is, we played really good cricket," said Mortaza. "It´s just we couldn´t finish well, that´s it." Mortaza, also Bangladesh´s captain in Adelaide, played down the significance of that result by telling reporters at the Oval on Wednesday: "Look, it was a long time back. And after then, England is a totally different team. The way they are playing, if you look at the last two years, their performance, they win almost everything. And especially at home, they are a serious side." Ben Stokes: England?s go-to man in Champions Trophy The dynamic all-rounder is credited for England's revival in limited-overs cricket "But we know that we are also a better side; that we are a very improving side,? he added. ?We have some exciting youngsters like Mustafizur and Sabbir Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, those players are also in our side." Bangladesh were shot out for 84 by Champions Trophy title-holders India at The Oval on Tuesday in a crushing warm-up defeat. The long wait England captain Eoin Morgan will hope to lift the trophy in two-and-a-half weeks/Getty Images England´s only global one-day title came at the World Twenty20 in 2010 and they lost the 2013 Champions Trophy final to India at Edgbaston in a game reduced to 20 overs per side. With a powerful batting lineup, including pugnacious openers Jason Roy and Alex Hales, Test captain Joe Root, Morgan, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, England usually score their runs rapidly. The hosts, however, faced a hiccup when they lost spectacularly against South Africa in the third and final ODI of the recently-concluded series, slumping to 20 for six in tough conditions on the way to defeat at Lord´s. "It´s a lesson with the bat and ball - our bowlers to be disciplined and to our batsman that, sometimes, you have to sit in," Morgan said. Playing XI England Bangladesh With additional input from AFP
  15. One of the bright spots in the England squad in the five match Test series is Haseeb Hameed. The guy is just 19 and has impressed all with his gritty and solid batting display. And his fight back in the second innings just goes on to show what a find he is for the English team. © Twitter Hameed was carrying an injury on his finger when he came in to bat. He supported Root very well in their quest for helping the team put up a competitive score to defend in the fourth innings but quickly found him running out of partners on the other end. Hameed then took it upon himself and made some quick runs to give England a lead of 102 runs. In the process, he also accumulated yet another fifty plus score in the subcontinent. He is, by far the only guy to have aced the pitches here in India. And that too while he was injured. © Twitter So, when he finally made it back to the pavilion after the end of the innings, the India captain Virat Kohli, in a gesture of respect patted the young man Hameed because what he did in that final session of the play for England deserved massive applause. Watch for the guy, he’s surely one for the future!
