Cricket News Rishabh Pant, Vijay Shankar deepen India’s ‘problem of plenty’ for 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup

first_imgIn the five-match series against the England Lions, Rahane smashed 59 and 91 and looked in good touch. Rahul, who was suspended from the tour of Australia along with Hardik for their ‘outrageous’ comments on the show Koffee With Karan, is also in the mix having scored 89 in the four-day game against the England Lions in Wayanad. However, Rahul’s form across all formats has been average in 2017 and 2018. However, Prasad reiterated that Rahane had a good chance as his form in the domestic circuit has been good.”In domestic cricket he has been in form. He is very much in contention for the World Cup,” Prasad said. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Rishabh Pant and Vijay Shankar have given the Indian cricket team plenty of depth due to their performances in the recently concluded tours of Australia and New Zealand. However, this has also presented the MSK Prasad-led selection panel with plenty of headaches as they prepare to pick the 15-man squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 which will be held in England from May 31. Pant was the star with the bat and behind the stumps during the tour of Australia in which India won the Test series 2-1. Shankar, on the other hand, chipped in with a vital 45 that helped India win the Wellington ODI and in the absence of Virat Kohli, he batted at No.3 in the Twenty20 Internationals in which he blasted 43 in the Hamilton T20I which India lost by four runs.In an exclusive interview to ESPNCricinfo, MSK Prasad has said that Shankar and Pant are in contention for a spot in the World Cup squad. “The progression of Rishabh in the last one year is phenomenal across the formats. What we actually felt is he needs a bit of maturity now, gain more experience. That is reason we have included him in India A series wherever possible. In whatever opportunities he has got, Shankar has shown the skillsets required at this level. We have been grooming him through India A tours in the last two years. But we will have to see where he can fit in the dynamics of this team,” Prasad said on the opportunities for both Pant and Shankar.The current line-up of the Indian cricket team has plenty of players who select themselves. Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli form the top three while MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya and Ambati Rayudu are the players who shore-up the middle order along with Kedar Jadhav. With the inclusion of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar as pacers and Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal as the spinners, there are only two or three spots where there will be intense competition. Pant and Shankar are not the only two players, with Ajinkya Rahane also in the mix as well as KL Rahul and Krunal Pandya.

PL on Citi: Jordan Ayew wins 2nd straight eToro Award of season

first_imgJordan Ayew’s contribution for the second straight week for Crystal Palace did not go unnoticed as he won the eToro Man of the Match Award for the second time in this season’s Premier League.Ayew scored the winning goal for the South London side as they beat Aston Villa 1-0 on Saturday to help them move to 7 points from their first four games of the season.The goal was his second for the season after one at Manchester United last weekend and on receiving the award, he told Crystal Palace’s official website that all his efforts in the campaign were aimed at rewarding the team’s faith in him by signing him on a permanent deal despite not being the brightest spot during his loan spell from Swansea.“Since I came to this football club, the staff, Chairman, everyone are motivating me. So even if I had a difficult year last season, they still trust in me and they signed me this year.The thing I have to do is pay them back on the pitch and that’s what I try to do. I work hard every day and now it’s paying off. I hope it continues.”After the match, Crystal Palace manager, Roy Hodgson, spoke highly of the Ghanaian and said the Ayew had worked well against Villa and fulfilled all his requirements on the day.“Had he not scored the goal today (against Aston Villa), I would still be heaping praise on him because of the work he does for us, his tactical understanding, the number of times he does the job we want tactically to help other players take up the positions they need to take up. I’m not just talking attacking-wise, I’m talking defending too.When he puts icing on that cake by scoring a goal last week and a goal this week, then it’s happy days – there’s no doubt about that. It’s in particular happy days for him and it’s happy days he deserves. Last season, he didn’t get as many opportunities as he would like to have had.There were many times he found himself on the bench as a substitute and wasn’t even getting onto the field of play but never once did he stop working hard in training. Never once did he stop trying to do the right things in training. Players like that, when their moment arrives, as a coach you feel really happy for them.”Ayew and Palace head to Tottenham when the Premier League returns on September 14 at 2pm and the match will be part of Citi FM’s live coverage of the Premier League which includes updates from all the afternoon kick-offs on match days.last_img read more

Dodgers’ 2015 roster will have a very different look

first_imgDodgers second baseman Howie Kendrick could only speak for himself Friday. He was alone on a dais at Dodger Stadium, at least until his two young sons joined him to talk about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.Still, he could have spoken for everyone as he looked ahead to working with new double-play partner Jimmy Rollins: “I think spring training is going to be huge as far as getting in and getting comfortable.”From the moment pitchers and catchers report on Feb. 19, 2015, everyone — from the players to the security personnel at Camelback Ranch — ought to be given a list of names and jersey numbers. Friday, Kendrick became the fourth Dodgers player to wear number 47 in the last two years. RELATED: Howie Kendrick is introduced at Dodgers Stadium The joke about the Dodgers having more front-office executives than desks in the front office is already old. In December alone, new president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman has overseen seven trades, signed two starting pitchers (once Brett Anderson passes his physical) and designated three players for assignment — including two who were not on the Dodgers’ roster in October.“I don’t think we’re ever going to get to the point where we sit back and put our feet on the desk,” Friedman said of his projected 2015 roster. “The bullpen will always be an answer that we give. It’s against my nature to ever feel comfortable with a bullpen in the off-season.”It will be tempting for fans to judge the entire off-season on the success of the blockbuster trade that sent popular outfielder Matt Kemp to the San Diego Padres. Asked if he realizes that fans will hate him if the trade is deemed a failure, Friedman said, “not any more than we will hate ourselves.”RELATED: Whicker: Kemp-for-Grandal is not Martinez-for-DeShields bad, but badBut that trade cannot be judged in a vacuum. Without it, Rollins would still be in Philadelphia. As it stands, the Dodgers have a reasonably clear picture of their personnel at every position. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Catcher: Friedman said that Grandal was among his top targets in October. How Grandal and A.J. Ellis split the playing time is ultimately up to manager Don Mattingly.First base: Adrian Gonzalez played 159 games last season. Grandal and Scott Van Slyke can lighten his load depending on whether a righty or lefty is pitching.Second base: Kendrick played 154 games at the position last season. Darwin Barney and Alex Guerrero can back up.PHOTOS: Howie Kendrick wears Dodgers cap and jersey for first timeShortstop: Rollins played 131 games last season at age 35. While Friedman praised Rollins’ durability, prospect Corey Seager might work his way into the mix this season.Third base: Juan Uribe, who turns 36 in March, was limited to 103 games last season because of hamstring problems. Justin Turner should be prepared if Uribe continues to slow down.Left field: Carl Crawford, 33, played 94 games at the position last season. Van Slyke and Andre Ethier — who’s still a Dodger for now — can back up.Center field: Friedman said that Joc Pederson, 22, isn’t guaranteed the opening day job. He mentioned Yasiel Puig, Andre Ethier, Kiké Hernandez and Chris Heisey as the other candidates, in that order.Right field: It’s Puig’s job once Pederson is ready to play center. Ethier, Van Slyke and Hernandez all have varying degrees of experience in right.Starting rotation: Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Brandon McCarthy are locks. Brett Anderson is the number-five starter if he passes his physical and gets through spring training healthy. Mike Bolsinger, Joe Wieland, Carlos Frias, Zach Lee and Chris Reed give the Dodgers the best ten-deep group that they’ve had in years.Bullpen: Kenley Jansen, J.P. Howell and Brandon League are the last men standing from 2014 — and League has been mentioned in trade rumors. Pedro Baez and Paco Rodriguez will try to stick in the majors. Joel Peralta, Juan Nicasio, Chris Hatcher and Adam Liberatore can define their roles in their first spring training with the Dodgers.For his part, Friedman wasn’t willing to reflect on his own off-season Friday.“I don’t think we’ve been able to slow the game down enough to postmortem the last two months,” he said. “We won’t until we get to spring training.”You can’t blame him. On the field and in the locker room, the changes have been sweeping.last_img read more
