IPL 2017: Virat Kohli, the lone warrior in Bangalore camp 1.5.2017 DNA: Top News
Virat Kohli will reflect on the 2016-17 with mixed emotions and finally concede that cricket is a funny game. He broke records while leading India to nine Test wins in the home season against four opponents. He himself got a thousand-plus runs and everything was going fine. It seemed that whatever he touched turned gold. But the harsh reality of life hit him hard when his Royal Challengers Bangalore could neither win at home or in their away games. The hard-core RCB fans that paint the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru red must be feeling let down by the most famed batting line-up. The likes of Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers have won matches single-handedly from any position. But, not this time around. So much so that if the 49 all out in Kolkata was the lowest point in the RCB history, their 96/9 on Saturday evening in Pune before coming here for Monday’s 4.00 pm game against second-placed Mumbai Indians by the Pune-Mumbai Expressway was no better. Remove Kohli’s 55 and the rest of the batsmen ...

IPL 2017: RCB may be out but their tie vs MI still a sell-out 1.5.2017 DNA: Top News
Royal Challengers Bangalore may be out of contention for the playoffs. But Mumbai Indians, like Kolkata Knight Riders are all but assured of their places in the knockouts. Despite this scenario, Match No. 38 between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore is one that is eagerly anticipated by the fans. So much so that the stadium is a sell-out with demands for tickets/passes pouring. Imagine the craze for this particular fixture when there are 10 people staking claim for one ticket. Furthermore, the fixture is on a public holiday, May Day. Such is the quality of cricket dished out between the two teams in the past that the fans mark the date as soon as the IPL schedule is out. Unlike in the past couple of years, Mumbai Indians have been off to a good start that may have even surprised their captain Rohit Sharma. It is all about maintaining the momentum, and Mumbai Indians will bank a lot on that when they begin their last leg of five league matches on Monday against Virat Kohli’s beleaguered ...

WATCH | IPL 2017: Robin Uthappa, Siddharth Kaul clash on field; Yuvraj Singh straightens lads 1.5.2017 DNA: Top News
SunRisers Hyderabad sent a warning towards the table toppers Kolkata Knight Riders when they registered a comfortable 48-win run during the return-leg match on Sunday. During the match as KKR set to chase the massive target of 210 pressure got better of Robin Uthappa. KKR lost Sunil Narine and Gautam Gambhir early on in just 2.3 overs. Under the circumstances, Uthappa had to stick around longer. But his innings saw a clash with SRH bowler Siddarth Kaul. During his over, there was body contact between him and Uthappa who was walking towards his partner Manish Pandey, followed by a heated exchange of words. At the moment, umpire S Ravi intervened to solve the matter. But after the teams stepped out after a little drizzle stopped the play, seemingly angry Yuvraj Singh put a hand around Uthappa's neck and seemed to have imparted a few words of wisdom. Uthappa's valiant effort 53 off 28 balls couldn't save the match for KKR. Watch the ...

Aizawl FC create history, win I-League crown 30.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Sports
Down and out last season, Aizawl FC scripted a dream success story in Indian football on Sunday, becoming the first team from North-East to win the I-League crown. In Shillong, they needed a draw in the final league match against local team Lajong to win the crown and they achieved just that, holding the hosts 1-1 in an intense encounter. An early goal from Lajong's Dipanda Dika (9th minute) looked like spoiling Aizawl's party. But William Lalnunfela's 67th minute strike meant Aizawl played themselves into the annals of Indian football by landing the crown. It was not long ago that Aizawl was struggling to find a footing in the domestic circuit. Promoted into the 2015-16 I-league on the back of a stellar show in the second division, the side from Mizoram couldn't replicate the same form on the big stage, finishing eighth and was relegated to the lower division. But with a number of teams pulling out of the I-League this season, the AIFF decided to give Aizawl a second chance and the team grabbed it with ...

'I am living every moment' 30.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Monday
New Zealand cricketer Matt Henry, who is playing for Kings XI Punjab this season of IPL, says that the IPL is a good chance to hone one's skills as well as to make some good friends. Vouching for the fact that the IPL format of cricket improves a player's speed of thought and action, Matt talks about why he thinks this game is here to stay, in an interview with Nina C George. How does it feel to be back for another season of IPL? As a team, we got off to a tough start this season, but it's been an eventful, adventurous and exciting journey so far. How do you define IPL? It's a great tournament. It has added another layer to cricket. There are a lot of young players who want to be a part of the tournament now. Is going from one team to another a challenge?

Bagan second best for second straight time 30.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Sports
Ten-man Mohun Bagan brilliantly bounced back through a Darryl Duffy goal to down Chennai City FC 2-1 but the result was not enough as they had to settle for a runners-up finish for the second successive time in I-League football here on Sunday. The Bagan-Chennai clash lived up to the expectation as there was high drama starting with the news that Aizawl conceded a ninth minute goal to leave the Rabindra Sarobar home crowd in a frenzy mode. But in the 32nd minute, Mohun Bagan's U-22 recruit Nanda Kumar silenced the crowd when he darted the ball and scored with a gentle push, showing good presence of mind. What followed was some missed opportunities with Balwant at the receiving end, but Mohun Bagan finally scored the equaliser in the added time of first half through captain Katsumi Yusa. Substitute Jeje Lalpekhlua got the better of Debabrata Roy on the right channel and a cross near the byline saw Duffy place it brilliantly from the first-timed shot to take Mohun Bagan ahead in the 77th minute. But all ...

CoA calls for a meeting a day ahead of BCCI's crucial SGM 30.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Sports
The Committee of Administrators (CoA) has called for a meeting with various zonal representatives of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on May 6 to brief them on what is expected of the board's Special General Body Meeting (SGM). It is understood that in case of the SGM voting for a pullout from the Champions Trophy, the CoA would not hesitate to intervene in the interest of Indian cricket. The decision on India's participation in the Champions Trophy, to be held from June 1-19 in England, continues to be a matter of debate, and would be decided at the SGM of BCCI when it meets here on May 7. A pullout risks sanctions from the ICC besides tarnishing the image of the BCCI. "It is not just the Champions Trophy. Please remember India would miss out on the women's World Cup and the under-19 tournaments if BCCI decides to pull out. The ramifications would be severe and impact India's participation in ICC-conducted events until 2023," warned a well-placed source. There are several within the ...
