Dropping Hardik Pandya’s catch cost Australia big time: Sachin Tendulkar

first_imgIndia all-rounder Hardik Pandya cashed in on an early reprieve during his swashbuckling innings against Australia, smashing 48 off 27 balls which gave his team the push that was needed to put up a massive total on the board in their second World Cup 2019 match in London on Sunday.Hardik Pandya was elevated up the batting order to No.4 and walked in after Shikhar Dhawan’s wicket in the 37th over. Hardik shared an 81-run partnership with Virat Kohli and did the bulk of the scoring even though the Indian captain was well-set in the middle at that time.Hardik hit three sixes and four boundaries in his brief cameo and narrowly missed out on scoring the fastest half-century in this World Cup. But his knock helped India go past the 300-run mark in the 46th over.Kohli (82), MS Dhoni (27) and KL Rahul (11 not out) then made sure to take the score past 350 which took the game out of Australia’s reach.”Alex Carey would be not so happy with what he did. Hardik was dropped first ball that cost them big time because he is someone you wouldn’t want to give him an extra chance. The first chance that he gives you better catch that ball”With Hardik having that ability to clear the boundary so effortlessly, you want to see his back when he’s going full swing you don’t want him to spend time in the middle. When we lost that wicket (Shikhar Dhawan) I was just hoping either Dhoni or Hardik should walk in and it rightly happened so,” Sachin Tendulkar told India Today after the game.advertisementRohit 57 (70)Dhawan 117 (109)Kohli 82 (77)Pandya 48 (27)Dhoni 27 (14)from #TeamIndia to post 352/5.

It’s a free bat swing and during the impact he’s stable. Early on in his career he was trying to hit the ball too hard and would lose shape.”Now he’s maintaining a good shape and that centre of gravity is far more stable. He is not slogging, he’s playing proper cricket shots and he did so even in IPL 2019,” Tendulkar said.The series loss in India earlier this year “motivated” India in their clash against Australia, says #ViratKohli. #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/bZfKcN3QIECricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 10, 2019India rode on opener Shikhar Dhawan (117) and captain Kohli’s (82) knocks to post a mammoth 352 for 5 after winning the toss and then bowled out Australia for 316 with Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah taking 3 wickets each.The defending champions had won both their games before losing to India in this World Cup while India had defeated South Africa in their opening match.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Batsmen underestimate Yuzvendra Chahal, feels Sachin TendulkarAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Sachin Tendulkar surprised with David Warner’s slow batting vs IndiaAlso Read | Sachin Tendulkar on India’s win over Australia: It was incredible and specialAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Sachin Tendulkar questions Australia tactics in failed run chase vs IndiaAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Sachin Tendulkar wants Shikhar Dhawan to break his record in ICC tournamentslast_img read more

Injured Humboldt Broncos player returning home for first time since accident

first_imgAIRDRIE, Alta. — It’s been more than a year since injured Humboldt Broncos player Ryan Straschnitzki slept at home in his own bed.That’s about to change.After several months of renovations, his family’s home in Airdrie, just north of Calgary, is once again ready to be lived in.For Straschnitzki, paralyzed from the chest down in a 2018 bus crash that left 16 people dead and 13 others injured, it will mean increased independence.“I think everything’s just going to be accessible for me with the lift and everything like that,” he said.“Last summer I didn’t get to spend any time with friends and I figure I might as well have a good summer with friends and family and part of that is moving home.”The Straschnitzki’s are returning home today @660NEWS @BTCityNewsCGY pic.twitter.com/LReBJ8M7zu— Kristen Fong (@FongK10) April 27, 2019The Straschnitzkis have been living in hotels since last July when Ryan returned home from physiotherapy at the Shriners Hospital for Sick Children in Philadelphia.The renovations were months behind schedule, largely due to a number of structural problems in the original home.The garage floor sank 50 centimetres and had to be re-poured. There were problems with wiring and he hardwood floors had to be ripped up.The biggest changes included installing a separate heating unit for Straschnitzki’s bedroom — he’s unable to sense when his body is too hot or too cold — and building an elevator from the garage to what will be his basement apartment.TV personality Mike Holmes, one of Canada’s most recognizable home renovators, oversaw the remodelling project.Follow @BillGraveland on TwitterThe Canadian Presslast_img read more
