Ever since he took over the reins from MS Dhoni as captain, Virat Kohli, with his majestic batting and unmatched leadership, has helped the Indian cricket team in scaling new heights in international cricket. His aggressive brand of cricket has now become one of India's most influential tools to upstage the opposition. Not one to back down from a fight on the field, the Indian captain has often been seen dishing out perfect responses to those who've tried to provoke him with words. The ongoing four-match Test series between India and Australia was expected to produce an exciting contest, not just with the bat and the ball, but also with verbal volleys. However, the first Test hardly had any confrontations or altercations on the field and the second match in Perth was also pretty clean in that regard, until the fourth day's play. Early on Day 4, the 71st over bowled by Jasprit Bumrah saw a rare clash of the captains of the two sides. The first delivery of the over saw the Australian skipper pushing the ball for a quick single towards midwicket, where Kohli ran towards the pitch in anticipation of collecting the ball and came extremely close to Paine before he could reach the non-striker's end. The incident irked Paine who was seen following Kohli for a couple of steps for a few words as the Indian captain made his way towards his fielding position for the next delivery. "I'm not saying a word to you, why are you getting riled up?" Kohli was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo. Virat Kohli and Tim Paine are back at it! The two have locked horns again as tension builds on the 4th day of the 2nd Test. ðº Watch LIVE on #FoxCricket & ð° join our match centre: https://t.co/fLeuCrQjUF #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/MFZlzpoIt5 — Fox Cricket (@FoxCricket) December 17, 2018 In reply, Paine said: "I'm fine. You're the one that lost it yesterday, why are you trying to be cool today?". This is when umpire Chris Gaffaney intervened and said: "Oi, that's enough, that's enough". "We're allowed to talk," Paine replied to the on-field umpire. "Nah, nah, come on, play the game. You guys are the captains," Gaffaney added further. "We can have a conversation. There's no swearing, no," Paine said. "Tim, you're the captain," Gaffaney responded. In his final comment to Kohli, Paine said: "Keep your cool, Virat". If the verbal exchange wasn't enough, the two skippers, then, faced-off with a 'chest bump' on the final delivery of the 71st over. Paine had punched the ball for another run towards mid-on where Kohli was fielding. While Paine was completing his run, Kohli came running in and collided with the Australian skipper. While the duo didn't exchange words at that time, their 'chest bump', once again, got the on-field umpire giving some words of wisdom to the two captains. © Twitter After Lunch on Day 4, Mohammed Shami spelt trouble for the Australian skipper with a nasty short ball. As Paine tried to get out of the way, he gloved the ball in the air before, who else, but Kohli completed a simple catch. As the Aussie leader began his long back towards the pavilion, Kohli had a few more words to say to the 34-year-old which made him turn around for a reply. Apart from that, the duo had earlier been recorded exchanging words after a caught-behind appeal against Australian captain was turned down on the third day. Walking past Paine, Kohli said to his Team India mates: "If he (Paine) messes it up, it's 2-0". In reply, Paine said: "You've got to bat first, big head". More cheeky banter caught on the TV stump mic! #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/pDbuJIfJJI — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) December 17, 2018 And then, when Murali Vijay was batting for India in the second innings on Day 4, the Australian captain, who was keeping wickets, was heard on the stump-mic saying: "Murali, I know he's your captain. But you can't seriously like him as a bloke".
BEIJING: An Iranian oil tanker that sank in the East China Sea has left two oil slicks covering a combined 109 square km (42 square miles), the Chinese government said late on Tuesday, as maritime police scour for damage and prepare to explore the wreck. Satellite imaging showed a slick of 69 square km (26.6 square miles) and a second 40 square km (15.4 square miles) slick, which is less thick and not as concentrated, the State Oceanic Administration (SOA) said in a statement. The large tanker Sanchi sank in the worst oil ship disaster in decades on Sunday, raising worries about damage to the marine ecosystem. The bodies of two sailors were recovered from the ship while a third body was pulled from the sea near the vessel. The remaining 29 crew of the ship are presumed dead. In a statement on Wednesday, the Ministry of Transport said the salvage team had located the wreck, which was at a depth of 115 metres (377 feet) under sea level, and were preparing to send underwater robots to explore it. The SOA said vessels have taken 31 water samples in the area around the wreck containing black grease with heavy oil smells, and a concentration of petroleum that exceeds some seawater quality standard limits. Clean-up teams continue to monitor the wreck area to assess the distribution and drift of the oil spill and the ecological impact. The Sanchi had been adrift and ablaze after crashing into the freighter CF Crystal on Jan 6. Strong winds pushed it away from the Chinese coast, where the incident happened, and into Japan?s exclusive economic zone. The ship, which was carrying 136,000 tonnes or almost 1 million barrels of condensate - an ultra-light, highly flammable crude oil - sank after several explosions weakened the hull. On Tuesday, Japan?s environment ministry said it does not see much chance that the spill will reach its shores.
In what turned out to be a cracker of a game, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) managed to hold their nerve to eke out a narrow five-run win over Kings XI Punjab (IPL) in Match 19 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017. Chasing a competitve total of 159 runs, the Glenn Maxwell-led Punjab almost pulled off a thrilling win until Bhuvneshwar Kumar turned the tide against the visitors. The right-arm seamer ran amok with sensational bowling figures of 5-19 to ensure Hyderabad continued their unbeaten home run this season. But, while Bhuvneshwar's swing bowling sealed the game for Hyderabad, another man from the opposing team won a billion hearts with his gutsy batting performance, despite ending up on the losing side. Manan Vohra's 50-ball 95 will surely go down as one of the IPL's greatest 'backs-to-the-wall' innings ever. © Twitter With Punjab losing six wickets for just 82 runs, Manan defied a pitch of inconsistent pace and bounce to revive a floundering chase that looked almost over in the 14th over of the match. Wow! Manan Vohra has opened this match up after all of us had thought it was over. This is breathtaking batting. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) April 17, 2017 On a pitch where all the other Punjab batsmen struggled to even get going, the 23-year-old cricketer appeared to be in a league of his own. He was timing the ball better than anyone from either side. And, what he was also doing, better than most batsmen this season, was picking Rashid Khan's deceiving googly out of hand. © Twitter After notching up his fifty in the 15th over, Manan went after the Afghanistan leg-spinner again, pulling and lofting him for 4,0,6,6,4. From what looked like a certain defeat, the Punjab opener got his team to touching distance with just 16 runs required off 12 balls. © Twitter But, as the game tilted towards Punjab, Bhuvneshwar came out all guns blazing with his steaming yorkers and bowled the most important delivery of the game to Vohra who was trapped in front of the stumps. It was a five-for-five for Bhuvi and eventually the game for Hyderabad. © Twitter Despite going in vain, Manan's batting masterclass was just too hard to overlook. Such was the intensity of his innings that Hyderabad captain David Warner and his teammate Yuvraj Singh acknowledged Manan's gritty effort by giving him a pat on the back after his dismissal. Vohra’s 95 (50) is one of the all-time great IPL innings. He scored at 11.40 RPO on a pitch where everyone else scored at 6.41 RPO. #IPL — Freddie Wilde (@fwildecricket) April 17, 2017 "Unbelievable game of cricket. Credit to Manan for playing like that. Credit to Bhuvi too, he was unbelievable. Manan made it look easy when he cleared the ropes. He had to dig in for his team. Unfortunately only one team can win. It's great to have Bhuvi in the shed at the back end and he executed perfectly," Warner said after the match. One of the great IPL innings from Manan Vohra ends with one of the best death bowlers, Bhuvaneswar, bowling a top spell — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) April 17, 2017 Sharing similar notions, Punjab captain Maxwell also lauded Manan's knock. "An outstanding game, made by a great innings by Vohra. Unfortunately he didn't have help from the rest of us. It was definitely chase-able. We did well in the middle with the ball but let it slip in the back end. To play an innings like that in a losing cause is criminal. He's a superstar. A big score like that was around the corner for him. We knew Bhuvi was going to swing it around a bit. We didn't expect the wicket to be so up and down and he bowled good lengths. We had planned for him and Rashid, but giving seven wickets to them probably did us in. We wanted to take off and get 60 in the Powerplay, but it didn't come off," Maxwell said. On a day when Punjab suffered a batting collapse in their second consecutive match, Manan didn't just save the blushes for his side, but almost pulled off what could have been one of the most miraculous wins this season. .@ImMananVohra's highest ever score in the IPL included 5 6's & 9 4's. Almost single handedly taking us to victory! #LivePunjabiPlayPunjabi pic.twitter.com/UCC1hkuFex — Kings XI Punjab (@lionsdenkxip) April 17, 2017 Low scoring but what a cracker.. but gotta feel for Manan Vohra - that Punjab dugout owes him some answers tonight..#SRHvKXIP #IPL2017 — Jatin Sapru (@jatinsapru) April 17, 2017 Manan Vohra has played a knock to remember. On a pitch where some of the finest batsmen struggled to put bat to ball. Well played ?? #IPL — Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) April 17, 2017 Excellent knock by Manan Vohra today, though we lost today's game but your performance gave us the win feeling #KXIP #MananVohra #ipl — Ishmeet Singh Banga (@ishmeetbanga27) April 17, 2017 Great fighting win #orangearmy brilliant again from #Warner & #Bhuvi Special mention to #Vohra quality innings! — Tom Moody (@TomMoodyCricket) April 17, 2017 The 61.68% of KXIP’s runs scored by Vohra is the 19th highest ever in an IPL innings & the highest ever in a losing cause. #IPL — Freddie Wilde (@fwildecricket) April 17, 2017 Wonderful game this, the best of this year's IPL so far. Vohra's innings will be remembered for a long time but Bhuvi too good.#SRHvsKXIP — Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) April 17, 2017 Impressive stuff from Manan Vohra & Manish Pandey. India's got talent. Truckloads of it. Pick the right squad & #ChampionsTrophy is ours. — Rajkrishnan Menon (@RajkrisMenon) April 17, 2017
