New Zealand Cricket (NZC) announced the schedule of the tour on Tuesday with the opening fixture, a T20 International, scheduled at the Sky Stadium in Wellington on November 18.
The offline tickets will be made available at the OCA conference hall from 10 am today.
Odisha Cricket Association (OCA) secretary Sanjay Behera confirmed the date of India-South Africa T20I match to be played at Barabati Stadium in Cuttack.
He has nine wickets from six games for SRH this season and the manner in which he intimidated an established international batter like KKR's Shreyas Iyer was an exhilarating sight.
Indian bowlers didn't give any freebies to Tim Seifert (12) and Rachin Ravindra (7) and Mitchell Santner (4) and pulled things back in the death overs as New posted 164-6 in 20 overs.
While the good news is that the match shall be played in front of a sizeable crowd with the host association refusing to put any restrictions on entry of spectators with even single shot of Covid-19 vaccine, the other side of the story is that the strict Covid protocols shall limit the smooth entry of audience in the stadium and it would not be a cakewalk for them to enter stadium like pre-Covid times.
After the Power-play, New Zealand stemmed the run-flow by not conceding any boundaries in the middle overs. Sharma mistimed his pull to long-on off Ish Sodhi in the eighth over.
Coolidge: West Indies captain Kieron Pollard on Thursday became the second batsman after India’s Yuvraj Singh to hit 6 sixes in an over in a T20 International. Pollard’s rampage came against Akila Dananjaya in the first T20 between West Indies and Sri Lanka, who had taken a hat-trick in only his previous over. Pollard is […]
Canberra: A well compiled half century from KL Rahul and a late onslaught from Ravindra Jadeja helped India post a 162-run target for Australia in the first T20I of the three-match series at the Manuka Oval on Friday. Put into bat, India didn’t have a great start as they lost a wicket early in the […]
Karachi: England will make their first visit to Pakistan in 16 years when they will play two T20Is in Karachi on October 14 and 15 next year. England will arrive in Karachi on October 12, and both the sides will depart for India on October 16 for the T20 World Cup at the end of […]
Mount Maunganui: India registered a rare 5-0 whitewash against New Zealand after notching up a seven-run win in the fifth and final T20 International at Bay Oval here on Sunday. Electing to bat, India posted 163 for three, riding on Rohit Sharma’s 60 off 41 balls and a 33-ball 45 from K L Rahul. The […]
Rajkot: Skipper Rohit Sharma made it a memorable 100th T20 International blending grace with brutality in his 85 off 43 balls as India cantered to a series-levelling eight-wicket victory over Bangladesh here on Thursday. Chasing an easy target of 154 on far better track compared to Feroz Shah Kotla, Rohit showed the gulf in class […]
New Delhi: India’s stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma on Sunday reclaimed the top spot in the list of highest run-scorer in T20 internationals during the first T20I against Bangladesh at the Arun Jaitley Stadium here. Rohit has been trading the top spot with Virat Kohli for some time now and it was the latter who was […]
Lahore: Pakistan pacer Mohammad Hasnain on Saturday became the youngest player to claim a hat-trick in T20 internationals in the second T20 against Sri Lanka at the Gaddafi Stadium here on Saturday. However, his hat-trick went in vain as Pakistan went on to lose the first T20I by 64 runs. Sri Lanka set them a […]
Surat: Indian women’s team produced another authoritative performance to comfortably defeat South Africa by five wickets in the fifth T20 International, taking an unassailable 3-0 lead in the six-match series. With two games being completely washed out, the series was extended from five to six matches and India needed to win on the day to […]
Mohali: Captain Virat Kohli on Wednesday got past his deputy Rohit Sharma as the leading run-scorer in T20 internationals after his unbeaten 72 helped India record a facile seven-wicket victory over South Africa in the second T20 international here on Wednesday. Kohli started the match on 2,369 runs in 65 innings to Rohit’s 2,422 runs […]
Mohali: Virat Kohli took a stunning catch to pour cold water on Quinton de Kock’s half century as India restricted South Africa to 149/5 in 20 overs in the second T20 international here on Wednesday. After the first rubber was washed out without a ball being bowled, a new-look South African team were asked to […]
Mohali: Rishabh Pant’s form would be an important sub-plot when India look to seize the advantage against South Africa in the second T20 International here on Wednesday after a washout in Dharamsala effectively made the series a two-match affair. The T20 World Cup is more than 12 months away but India captain Virat Kohli has […]
Dhaka: A rather monotonous T20 international between Afghanistan and Zimbabwe was brought to life by Mohammad Nabi and Najibullah Zadran when they smashed seven consecutive sixes across the 17th and 18th overs here on Saturday. It was the second match of the tri-series being played between Bangladesh, Zimbabwe and Afghanistan, which the latter ended up […]
Lauderhill: The time has come for Rishabh Pant to “unleash” his rich potential in all three formats, said India captain Virat Kohli ahead of the first T20 international against the West Indies here on Saturday. With little clarity over the future of veteran M S Dhoni, Pant has now become the preferred choice in all […]
Guwahati: The Indian women’s cricket team suffered a five-wicket defeat to England in the second T20 International, surrendering the series with a sixth straight loss in the shortest format. Chasing 112 for an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series, England completed the task in 19.1 overs, holding nerves after losing a few quick wickets. […]
Lucknow: The West Indies were expected to do well in the T20 internationals, but a five-wicket loss in the first outing of the three-match rubber against dominant India showed the script might not change when the two sides clash in the second contest at the Ekana International Cricket stadium here on Tuesday. India have won the […]
Cardiff: Alex Hales struck an unbeaten 58 off 41 balls to power a much-improved England to a series-levelling five-wicket victory over India in the second T20 International here. The hosts scored 149 for five in 19.4 overs to overcome India’s sub-par total of 148 for five on a Sophia Gardens surface that offered bounce. Virat […]
Manchester: After thrashing minnows Ireland in a T20I series, India’s real test on the tour will start today when the Virat Kohli-led Team India will be up against a formidable England side in the first of the three-match Twenty20 International series at the Old Trafford in Manchester. While India has been a consistent limited overs […]
