ICC World Cup Rohit Sharma blasts 25th century, equals Sourav Ganguly’s mark of three tons in World Cup edition

first_img New Delhi: Rohit Sharma continued his magnificent run in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as he blasted his 25th century and third in the tournament to keep India in the hunt in their chase of 338 against England in the clash in Edgbaston on Sunday. Rohit had smashed centuries against South Africa and Pakistan in the 2019 tournament but he had endured a tough run in the last couple of games, falling cheaply in the games against Afghanistan and West Indies. Rohit is now joint-second in the all-time list of most centuries in a single edition of the tournament, with Kumar Sangakkara creating a record four consecutive centuries in the 2015 edition of the tournament.Rohit was given good support by Virat Kohli, who blasted his fifth consecutive fifty but fell for 66. Kohli and Rohit shared a partnership of 138 after they had lost KL Rahul for 0 in the third over bowled by Chris Woakes. India would be hoping to create history in the game against England as India attempt the highest successful chase in the history of the World Cups. The highest chase in World Cups is 329 which was achieved by Ireland against England in Bangalore during the 2011 edition.However, on 102, Rohit looked to launch a slow, full off-cutter outside off from Chris Woakes but ended up edging it Jos Buttler the keeper as India suffered a jolt in their chase.Earlier, Virat Kohli stamped his consistency with yet another solid knock. In October 2018, when he had played 205 innings, he had reached 10000 runs during the series against West Indies. Eight months later and 17 innings later, Kohli blasted a further 1000 runs as he continued to enhance his reputation as the ultimate run-making machine in the world.Kohli is already the fastest to 8000, 9000 and 10,000 runs in ODIs and he added yet another feather to his cap with his entry into the 11000. Rohit reached his milestone by cutting Shadab to the deep point fence for a single to bring up his century off just 85 balls. Rohit continued to rake in the records as he broke Virat Kohli’s mark of the highest individual score in World Cups against Pakistan, which was 107 in the 2015 World Cup in Adelaide.

Update on the latest sports

first_img May 9, 2020 UNDATED (AP) — The NHL is considering the prospect of holding its amateur draft before the Stanley Cup final.The draft had been scheduled for June 26-27, but it was postponed with the season in an indefinite suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now the NHL is deciding whether to hold it earlier in June following the NFL’s success with its virtual draft last month.Such a move means teams would not be able to trade players before or during the draft, there would be a lack of clarity over next year’s salary cap and the draft order could be determined before all games are played. There are mixed feelings about the idea among executives.In other developments related to the coronavirus pandemic:— The end of this virus-disrupted school year has produced a bleak financial outlook for major college sports. Budget projections are landing in the red. West Virginia has announced a $5 million projected shortfall for the fiscal year ending June 30. The athletic director will take a 10% salary reduction for the next budget cycle along with other high earners in the department. Minnesota has forecast a $4 million deficit for the current fiscal period. The month before the pandemic hit, a $1 million surplus was projected. Now, the school says all cost-savings measures are on the table. Hamlin takes virtual finaleCHARLOTTE, N.C.

Wisconsin heads into uncharted territories

first_imgThe Wisconsin Badgers head to unfamiliar Bemidji State this weekend in the second to last series of the regular season. The Badgers sit just three points behind the Beavers in the conference standings and need to continue their recent success if they want to have any hope of catching BSU this weekend on the road. UW is only 1-8-1 on the road this season.[/media-credit]All season long, when the Wisconsin men’s hockey team has taken a road trip, there’s always been concern over how the youngest Badgers will handle a new atmosphere.As they head to Bemidji State (15-14-3, 9-12-3 WCHA) this weekend, the youngsters aren’t the only ones who have never visited BSU before – in fact, Wisconsin (13-15-2, 8-14-2 WCHA) as a whole has never set foot on its foe’s campus.“Well, I hope I perform well; I’ll probably be outstanding behind the bench,” head coach Mike Eaves joked.In fact, some of the guys can’t even locate Bemidji, Minn., on a map.Sophomore defenseman Joe Faust used to live in the northern woods of Minnesota, not too far away from Bemidji, and has received questions about it.“I went to a school called Greenway,” Faust said. “I have a lot of friends and family that’s still up there, so I’m excited. Some of the guys were asking me where it was. They knew it was in northern Minnesota, but they didn’t really know where, so I was describing that a little bit.”Joining the Western Collegiate Hockey Association in 2010, the Badgers hosted the Beavers last season, sweeping their newest conference adversary with a 3-2 Friday night win and a 2-0 decision Saturday. The teams have met on neutral ice once before, in the first round of the 2006 NCAA tournament.But in the WCHA era, this week marks only the second time the two teams have met and the first time even Eaves has been to Bemidji’s new arena.“I talked to (women’s hockey head coach) Mark Johnson at the radio show; he says it’s a great facility,” Eaves said. “… I think everybody is looking really forward to going and seeing what they have to offer.”With only two more series remaining in regular season play, the Badgers are looking to make the most of what games they have left. Currently sitting in 10th place in the WCHA, Wisconsin trails eighth place Bemidji by only three points.UW is beyond recognizing the importance of the weekend or any remaining series – the team has known just how important each series has been through the second half of the season. Rather, they just need to win, plain and simple.“We need four points,” sophomore Keegan Meuer said. “We’ve said it for the past couple of weeks; but it’s kind of been do or die for us. Every game has been the most important game of the season for quite a while now, but we need four points. A split will do us no good.”For a team that is 1-8-1 on the road, winning has not been an easy task.But after a 5-2 rout of a potential conference title-contending Denver team last weekend in its final home game of the season, Wisconsin knows it just has to keep the offense rolling and continue to get shots on net.“We have to go and bottle what we did on Saturday,” Eaves said. “Not only playing well but finishing offensively. Our [goal] would be to bottle that and take that on the road with us.”“I think we go back and just look at what we did well and how we did it so well,” Meuer said. “I think it was the first time we put up 35 shots in a while. We kept them under 20, and we got a lot of scoring chances. We got a lot of pucks on the net. … If we just keep getting pucks on net and keep getting traffic in front, we’re going to find ourselves with good opportunities to score.”Regardless, the Badgers hope to continue last weekend’s win and its adjoining momentum through the remainder of the season.“I think Saturday was just huge to get out of a losing streak,” Faust said. “To get that win and play better was a huge boost to the team. It’s just brought back a new level of excitement and energy, and I think we’re just going to try and carry that into Bemidji and keep going. We don’t want to get too carried away, but we have playoffs coming up; we just have to keep improving and getting better every weekend.”last_img read more
