first_img(REUTERS) Novak Djokovic made an immense statement in his bid to rule men’s tennis again when he defeated Andy Murray, the man who deposed him as world number one, 6-3 5-7 6-4 in an epic Qatar Open final in Doha yesterday.Looking back to near his peerless best at times in a game of searing quality, the Serbian missed out on three match points and had to repel a roaring Murray comeback before ending the Briton’s 28-match, five-tournament winning streak.In their first meeting since Murray won their season-ending climax at the ATP World Tour finals, the Briton ran into a rejuvenated Djokovic who, despite having problems with his racket hand and receiving two warnings for his behaviour, prevailed thrillingly in their 36th contest.The world number two said it was “the dream start” to 2017 in his build-up to the defence of the Australian Open title later this month and defeat provided food for thought for Murray, who lost for the 25th time against his old rival.“It was close, a very physical battle. All the way to the last shot, you never know with Andy. It’s no strange occurrence for us to play three sets for three hours,” Djokovic told Eurosport.“It means a lot. For the last three months of 2016, I haven’t felt that confident on court and didn’t play that consistent. But to start 2017 with a win over the world number one and my biggest rival was a dream start so I’m hoping I can get the best out of it.”Djokovic had looked out of sorts as he struggled to tame Spaniard Fernando Verdasco in Friday’s semi-final and he started inconsistently again, also requiring treatment to a bleeding right thumb in the third game.Yet Djokovic began playing with an authority that he had not displayed all week and was so frustrated after losing one 29-shot rally that he was warned for hitting the ball away petulantly towards his box.Still, he pressurised Murray, making his breakthrough in the eighth game as the Scot surrendered the crucial break with a mis-hit forehand.When Djokovic cashed in on a sloppy service game, in which Murray delivered two double faults, to take a crucial 4-3 lead in the second set, he looked unstoppable.He seemed certain to wrap up the victory serving at 5-4 but a couple of missed backhands and courageous aggression from Murray led to him missing out on his three match points. The Briton pounced to break serve — a feat he has now achieved in an impressive 112 successive matches.Djokovic received a point penalty for smashing his racket which handed the 11th game to Murray and the Scot rammed home his ascendancy by breaking again to take the second set.Yet just when Murray seemed to be taking control physically, with Djokovic looking increasingly weary, the Serbian produced an inspirational game to break to love at 3-3.When he served for the match again, he made no mistake, crashing a forehand winner to seal victory.last_img read more

A short ball, down the leg side, Dickwella just helps it with a pull over fine leg!21.02 IST: Bumrah to Dickwella, DROPPED! That should have been taken! Well, you can forgive him afterhis heroic innings. But still. Dickwella miscues his pull and the ballgoes towards mid-wicket.

Two runs taken.21.01 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to bowl from the other end.20.57 IST: Interesting shot, poor running. Full and straight, Dickwella gets downand paddles it over the keeper. Gets more height than distance butluckily for him, Kuldeep Yadav does not get to it from short fine leg. A single taken.20.55 IST: We are back! Was that even a break? Well, seems so. Jaydev Unadkat tostart off proceedings. Two Sri Lankan batsmen are out as well.Surprising. Can they prove their mettle? Time will tell. NiroshanDickwella and Upual Tharanga are their names.

MS Dhoni b Perera 28 (21 balls). India 255/5 in 19.4 overs BOWLED ‘EM! Thisara is right on the money with that.

Shreyas Iyer lbw b Perera 0 (1). India 254/4 in 19.2 oversHe’s gone! Iyer knew that, so the review was probably for namesake.Fuller and slower on the stumps, Iyer misses the shot and is caughtflush on the pads. Appeal from Thisara, the umpire raises his finger.It’s taken upstairs and replays show that Shreyas is gone. He startedwalking even before the decision came in, the third umpire actually toask the on-field umpire to stop him. Anyway, Iyer is gone and the Lankan captain has this wicket.20.38 IST: WICKET! Hardik Pandya c Samarawickrama b Pradeep 10 (3 balls). India 253/3 in 19 oversNo hat-trick for Sadeera! He manages to hold on to his third catch.

Pandya gets into the act straightaway, smacks a boundary and six off the first two balls he faced. India 253/2 in 18.5 overs20.38 IST: Pradeep to Pandya, FOUR!20.36 IST: WICKET! KL Rahul c Dickwella b Pradeep 89 (49 balls). India 243/2 in 18.3 overs A rare positive instance in this innings for Sri Lanka. That’s abrilliant take from Niroshan Dickwella. Full around off, Rahul looks togo big down the ground but edges it behind. It’s travelling fast, butDickwella dives superman-like to his right and takes a one-handedstunner. Lovely take, something for the Lankans to smile about.20.34 IST: Pradeep to Rahul, SIX! That’s as flat as an F1 race track. What a hit! Low full toss on thepads, Rahul flicks it over square leg. Gunaratne out in the deep has achance to catch it, but he maybe loses it somewhere in the lights. Goesover his head and over the boundary.20.32 IST: Chameera to Rahul, SIX! Full and outside off, just an extension of the arms. In essence a lofted cover drive, really. Rahul clears the rope and gets another biggie tohis name. Rahul enters the 80’s with that SIX off the last ball from Chameera. India 236/1 in 18 overs20.29 IST: Chameera to Rahul, SIX! Chameera bowls it with some real pace, but Rahul hits it with doublepower straight back. Really full on middle, Rahul goes deep inside hiscrease and hammers it straight back down the ground. The ball hasdisappeared deep into the stands, no idea where. But it’s gone highsomewhere.20.27 IST: Dananjaya to Rahul, SIX! Maximum to end the over! Too full from Dananjaya, Rahul leans ahead abit and lifts it so comfortably over long on for a biggie. Surprisingthe ball hasn’t been lost once with it being smacked around everywhere. 21 runs came off the over. India 223/1 in 17 overs20.26 IST: Dananjaya to Dhoni, SIX!20.24 IST: Dananjaya to Dhoni, SIX!20.24 IST: India 202/1 in 16 overs, run rate – 12.62 per over. Rahul 65*, Dhoni 12*20.16 IST: Pradeep to Rahul, FOUR! That’s actually not a bad ball but still it’s gone for a boundary. Just one of those evenings. Yorker on the stumps tailing back in, Rahul just manes to get some bat on it and it’s off the inside edge past the leg stump for a boundary.20.16 IST: Pradeep to Rahul, SIX! The back-of-the-hand slower one doesn’t work, KL Rahul picked that up quite early. Positioned himself well for the hoick and went bang over square leg for half a dozen.20.13 IST: Pradeep to Rahul, FOUR! That’s just inside the rope. Consecutive fifties for KL Rahul, his 3rd in this format. Length ball there to be hit, Rahul lofts it over mid-wicket. Looks like it’s going to go all the way but the ball falls just inside the rope. Replays confirm that. KL has been in fine touch since coming in the side, has taken full advantage of the chance given to him.

Overpitched from Akila and that’s dispatched. On the stumps, Dhoni drills this through mid on and away to the boundary line.20.03 IST: WICKET! Rohit Sharma c Dananjaya b Chameera 118 (43 balls). India 165/1 in 12.4 overs An imperious knock comes to an end. Short ball outside off, Rohit looks to loft it over short third man but finds Akila Dananjaya there who takes a good catch. The Indian skipper then waits as he thinks it’s a no ball for height, but the umpire doesn’t signal anything. He has to walk back, but he’s done his job, to say the least. The Indore crowd has been thoroughly entertained as Rohit Sharma walks back to a loud cheer. Thoroughly deserved.20.01 IST: Chameera to Rohit, SIX! That’s outta here! Rohit Sharma, take a bow, my man! Low full toss on the stumps, Sharma just lofts it over mid-wicket and that’s another maximum. Played that with so much ease.12.3: D Chameera to RG Sharma (118), 6 runs, 165/0 https://t.co/uPKH7cUa6J #IndvSL #TeamIndia @Paytm- BCCI (@BCCI) December 22, 201720.00 IST: Chameera to Rohit, FOUR!

Full and wide outside off, Sharma flays it through the left of sweeper cover for a boundary.19.59 IST: Chameera to Rohit, SIX! 19.53 IST: Mathews to Rohit, FOUR! 2nd T20I hundred for Rohit Sharma! Fastest century by an Indian, joint-fastest overall. If there was any Indian equal David Miller’s record, it was surely going to be him. What a way to bring it up. Fuller length ball outside off, Sharma smacks this on the up and pierces the gap in the covers for a boundary. Sensational knock, he removes his helmet and celebrates in joy.

What a hit, son!19.39 IST: Gunaratne to Rohit, SIX! 13th T20I fifty for Rohit Sharma! Length delivery on middle and off, Sharma camps back and muscles the pull over mid-wicket for a maximum. Brings up his fifty for that and that’s another captain’s knock with that. He’s going to want to make this big now.Watch out! Cricket balls are lying in the stands, in the 2nd tier.

This is poor, should be doing much better given the runs are anyway flowing for the Indians. Sharma cuts this towards point, the fielder there dives to his left but can’t stop it. It wasn’t too far away from him so he should have the batsmen down to maximum a single. Instead, it goes past Perera too at short third man who can’t stop it. Boundary results.19.34 IST: Chaturanga to Rohit, FOUR! He, too, is welcomed with a boundary! Rohit Sharma looking his aggressive best here.

KL Rahul with an absolute bomb of a shot. Brute force, this. Stands firm to this length ball outside off and hammers it over long off. In the upper tier so that’s a massive biggie. Unbelievable hit that from KL Rahul, most wouldn’t be able to even dream of hitting it like that.19.14 IST: Excellent over from the experienced Mathews, just 3 runs came off it. India 18/0 in 3 overs 19.12 IST: DROPPED! That was a dolly. Should have… Should have taken it. In and out straight!

Good ball, but that’s a seriously good shot. Bit fullish on middle and off, Rahul with a perfectly straight blade punches this straight back down. No point in mid off going after that, he’s never going to catch up with it.19.07 IST: This is the first T20 international being played at the Holkar stadium in Indore. 170 is the average first innings score here in the IPL19.05 IST: Dushmantha Chameera will bowl from the other end.19.05 IST: Two boundaries came off the first over from Angelo Mathews. India 8/0 in 1 over19.04 IST: Mathews to Rohit, FOUR! Rubbish ball! Short, with no pace at all, gives ample time to Rohit Sharma to go back and pull it over wide mid on. Clears the infield with ease and sends it all the way for a boundary.19.03 IST: India are unchanged for this game. Sri Lanka have included Samarawickrama and Chaturanga de Silva for Vishwa Fernando and Dasun Shanaka19.02 IST: Mathews to Rohit, FOUR! That’s gone in a flash!

Hello and welcome to Indore #TeamIndia #INDvSL pic.twitter.com/HwE8BmVEnn- BCCI (@BCCI) December 22, 2017Brief Preview:Team India led by stand-in captain Rohit Sharma will look to seal the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka when the two sides meet in Indore for the second T20I on Friday.The hosts hammered the visitors by 93 runs in the first T20I in Cuttack after the Lankans were bowled out for 87 in chase of 181.The Indians rode on some brilliant bowling performances from young Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and the returning Jaydev Unadkat in a dew-hit Barabati on Tuesday. The leggie bagged 4/23 from his four overs while the Kuldeep picked up two wickets for just 18 runs. On the other hand, the Lankans are going through a terrible phase of transition during which they are badly in need of reliable performers.The result has been a lack of contest and one-sided results, prompting many to question the very logic of India playing such a weak side again and again.This series has hardly proved to be a good preparation for the challenging South Africa tour that awaits India next month, considering the home team’s domination in the absence of a good opposition in favourable conditions.The Indian batsmen have made merry against a toothless attack. Runs and wickets always give confidence to the players but there is a question mark over how much these performances will count in the South African conditions.Sri Lanka on the other hand, need captain Thisara Perera, Upul Tharanga and Mathews to lead by example. They have been part of the side for long and only strong performances by them can infuse life and hope into this dejected side.Players such as Dusmantha Chameera and Dhananjaya De Silva have shown promise and need guidance to be consistent.last_img read more

first_imgCONSTANTINOPLE (AP) — Bayern Munich easily advanced to the Champions League quarterfinals for the seventh straight year with a 3-1 win at Besiktas on Wednesday.Thiago Alcantara, Gokhan Gonul’s own goal and Sandro Wagner gave Bayern an 8-1 win on aggregate following the side’s 5-0 victory in the first leg of the last-16 tie.That result left Besiktas in need of the biggest comeback in the competition’s history, and coach Senol Gunes reacted with seven changes to the side that lost in Munich. Only Caner Erkin, Gary Medel, Ricardo Quaresma and Vagner Love kept their places.Despite the huge advantage, Bayern’s Jupp Heynckes sent arguably his strongest side out as the 72-year-old became the first coach to claim 11 consecutive wins in the Champions League.The team selection paid off as Thomas Mueller crossed for Thiago to kill off any Besiktas hopes of a huge upset in the 18th minute.Bayern’s away goal meant Besiktas needed seven in response to progress. The visitors’ level consequently dropped and Besiktas improved toward the end of the half.Gonul started the second half with an own goal, minutes before a cat on the sideline caused referee Michael Oliver to halt the game briefly. It resumed after the cat jumped back over the advertising hoarding.Bayern’s Rafinha, left, and Besiktas’ Jeremain Lens challenge for the ball during the Champions League, round of 16, second leg, soccer match between Besiktas and Bayern Munich at Vodafone Arena stadium in Istanbul, Wednesday, March 14, 2018. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)Love got the fans cheering again when Gonul pounced on a mistake from David Alaba to set the Brazilian up for Besiktas’ consolation goal before the hour-mark.Alaba atoned by setting up Wagner for Bayern’s third in the final minutes.“We completed the job and now we’ll look ahead to the next round,” Mueller said.The only concern for Bayern was an apparent foot injury for Thiago, who was visibly frustrated as he went off in the 35th for James Rodriguez.“I don’t think it’s too serious,” Heynckes said.The home fans spent the last 15 minutes celebrating their side, singing and waving their flags in recognition of the team’s campaign. Besiktas was playing in the knockout stages for the first time after topping its group ahead of Porto, Monaco and Leipzig.Bayern fans are hoping for a repeat of Heynckes’ treble from his previous stint in 2013. Their side can wrap up the league title this weekend, while a cup semifinal against Schalke also awaits.—Besiktas’ Vagner Love celebrates after scoring a goal during the Champions League, round of 16, second leg, soccer match between Besiktas and Bayern Munich at Vodafone Arena stadium in Istanbul, Wednesday, March 14, 2018.
