Former cricketer and World Cup 2019 commentator kicked off plane after altercation with two women

On Tuesday, May 21, former Australian opening batsman Michael Slater was kicked off a plane in Australia, after a heated argument with two women.

Slater fought with the two women – who were apparently his friends – inside a Qantas flight and that resulted in a delay by 30 minutes, for the flight to take off. a report said on Tuesday. The three of them were set to travel from Sydney to Wagga Wagga, Slater’s hometown in New South Wales.

According to reports, Slater locked himself in a toilet and refused to come out, after “yelling and swearing” at the women. Eventually, security had to be called to remove him from the plane.

Later that day, the former World Champion apologised for his “disruptive” behaviour. “I did have an argument with two friends whilst boarding a flight to Wagga and I apologise for the inconvenience this caused other passengers on the flight,” he said.

Meanwhile, Qantas in a statement to AFP, said: “Prior to departure on a Sydney to Wagga Wagga flight on Sunday, a male passenger was asked to leave the aircraft for being disruptive. He complied with the crew’s request.”

The former batsman was part of the Australian cricket team from 1993 to 2001, and played 74 Tests before his retirement in 2004. He was also a part of the Aussie team that won the World Cup in 1999.

Currently, he is a well-known television commentator and is due to commentate at the upcoming World Cup 2019 in England.

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Indian star reveals how he developed his ‘weird’ bowling action

The 2019 edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup is only a few days away and the various participating teams, including the Indian contingent, have already entered the final stages of preparation of the mega event.

Team India is looking forward to the tournament, as explained by captain Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri on Tuesday’s press conference. “This will be the most challenging World Cup ever,” Kohli had said.

India’s lineup consists of strong batsmen, such as Kohli himself, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, MS Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik. Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav are the frontline Indian bowlers.

India also possesses a great set of all-rounders namely Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Kedar Jadhav and Vijay Shankar. Among them, Kedar Jadhav is one of India’s best part-time bowling options due to his wicket-taking abilities.

Kedar Jadhav is known for his “weird”, slow sidearm bowling style and in an interview, he was asked about how and why he chooses to bowl that way. Jadhav said it was something he developed recently, in his quest of being different from the crowd.

“I certainly haven’t been bowling it all along. But I like creativity so when I was bowling, I realised off-spinners are usual. Anyone who does not know to bowl will bowl off-spin. That’s when I tried a few new things like the sidearm ball and it worked. I tried it in the match and it got me wickets so stuck with it,” he explained.

Jadhav’s sidearm bowling could surely be a sight to watch out for, in India’s matches during the World Cup. However, it remains unclear as to whether he will bowl in the tournament as he is only recovering from an injury to his right arm, which he suffered during the IPL finals in early May.

India’s World Cup campaign begins on June 5th, when they will play against South Africa in their first group-stage game at the Ageas Rose Bowl stadium.

ICC updates rankings before World Cup 2019, Indian stars hold top spots in batting charts

Ahead of the Cricket World Cup 2019, the International Cricket Council (ICC) updated the batting rankings for One Day International (ODI)s. Indian batsmen Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma emerged leaders with 890 and 839 points respectively.

Both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma had an exciting 2018-19 season, as the duo led their team to several series wins – against West India, Australia and New Zealand among others. Virat Kohli, in particular, had an excellent year as he broke many records and climbed many milestones.

Kohli scored six hundred in 2018 alone and also became the fastest cricketer to reach 10000 ODI runs – in terms of matches, innings and balls faced. Rohit Sharma on the other hand, made three 150+ scores last year, the most for any batsman in 2018.

The Indian team recently lost their home series against Australia but Kohli and Rohit – who are the team captain and vice-captain respectively – continued to perform well with the bat.

The top-five ICC ODI batting rankings are as follows:

As you can see, New Zealand’s Ross Taylor follows the Indian pair at the third spot, with 831 points. Shai Hope of West Indies (808) is placed fourth and South Africa’s Quinton de Kock (803) follows him at fifth place.

Francois du Plessis (South Africa – 801 points), Babar Azam (Pakistan – 788), Joe Root (England – 782), Fakhar Zaman (Pakistan – 758) and Martin Guptill (New Zealand – 750) complete the top-ten in the rankings.

For the first time in many years, no Australian batsmen feature in the top ten. Aaron Finch (Australia – 744) is their top-ranked batsman, at 11th spot overall.

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Twitter trolls Team India for playing PUBG before the tournament

On Wednesday, Team India led by their captain Virat Kohli left for England from Mumbai, to participate in the much-awaited Men’s Cricket World Cup.

The tournament begins on May 30, with England facing South Africa in the opening game at the Oval. However, prior to the main event, all participating teams will play warm-up matches starting from the 24th of May.

India will play two warm-up matches, initially against New Zealand on May 25th and then against Bangladesh on May 28th, before they begin their tournament run in the group stage match against South Africa on June 5th.

Meanwhile, BCCI released the pictures of the Indian team all set to depart to England. The players including Yuzvendra Chahal and Mohammed Shami were seen playing the popular video game PUBG on their gadgets while waiting to board their flight.

The photos met with mixed responses from Twitterati, with some users slamming the players for getting distracted before such a major tournament. Others were in support of the stars, sending them warm regards for the tournament.


Reports: Manchester United ahead of Real Madrid in race to sign 21-year-old Brazilian

A recent word around the rumour mill is that Premier League club Manchester United have gotten ahead of Spanish giants Real Madrid, in the transfer race for Fluminense striker Pedro.

Globo Esporte reports that The 21-year-old Brazilian was previously targeted by Real Madrid and Inter Milan as well, before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co. entered the fray.

In 2018 August, Pedro got injured on his right knee, before which he had been negotiating with Real Madrid, while the Nerazzurri was also maintaining a watch on the proceedings. After the injury, the forward took several months to recover post an immediate surgery.

The Fluminense star scored two goals in four recent appearances since returning the game. That in turn, prompted Manchester United to begin negotiations on him this May, as per Globo Esporte. The Portuguese news agency further estimates that the club would pay €20million or more for the player.

However, Fluminense President Pedro Abad has also announced that they will not consider the sale of Pedro until June when the club is set to elect their new batch of representatives. As defined in an official club statement, the new representatives will assume the club on June 10, which is when the Brazilian team will begin to respond to clubs interested in Pedro.

FOX Sports Asia probability ratings: 3/5; Manchester United are keen on revamping their attack options ahead of next season, and Pedro could be an economical choice for Solskjaer especially as he is also interested in making a few other signings this summer.

Reports: Chelsea to sign Barcelona star as Eden Hazard replacement if transfer ban is lifted

According to reports from Spain, Premier League giants Chelsea are interested in pursuing the signature of FC Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho in the summer, provided the transfer ban imposed on them is lifted.

Chelsea’s interest in the former Liverpool star arose as a result of Eden Hazard’s impending move to Real Madrid, a transfer that is currently on its final stages prior to completion.

They find it necessary to line up a replacement for the departing star at the earliest, which is why they have now set their sights on Coutinho. The Brazilian meanwhile, had a difficult 2018-19 campaign even as Barcelona won the La Liga and are well on course to secure a domestic double by winning the Copa del Rey as well.

Coutinho joined Barcelona from Liverpool in January 2018 for a sum of  £106million. The deal also had a few additional clauses that could cost the Catalans further millions in the near future.

According to Daily Mail, Spanish radio station Cadena Ser reports that Chelsea is the only club to express keenness in signing Coutinho. The news agency further adds that it could be because they have to find a replacement for Eden Hazard, at all costs.

Another problem that the Blues face, is the two-window transfer embargo that has been imposed upon them by FIFA, after breaking rules surrounding the signings of under-18 players. The Londoners are currently in plans to fight the case at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, in an attempt to overturn the sanction.

But as the legal processes are still ongoing, Chelsea remains banned from signing players this summer – which in turn could mean that Coutinho could be forced to extend his unhappy stay at the Blaugranas.

FOX Sports Asia probability ratings: 2/5; There are very little chances that the transfer ban on Chelsea is lifted and as a result, the same applies to their prospects of signing Philippe Coutinho this summer.

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Virat Kohli identifies two main bowlers that could lead India to glory

On Tuesday, Team India captain Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri attended their final press conference before the Cricket World Cup. While speaking about his team’s preparations, Kohli said that Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal could be the two bowlers that would lead India to the title.

Kohli said that going into the World Cup, Kuldeep and Chahal are “pillars” of India’s bowling attack.

It did not sound right as Kuldeep was dropped from the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) team during the recently concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) because of poor form. However, the Indian captain feels that the move may have had a positive effect on the 24-year-old Chinaman bowler.

“In hindsight, if you look at it, someone like Kuldeep who has had so much success, it is important to see a period where things don’t go your way. We are glad that it happened in the IPL rather than during the World Cup,” Kohli said, before adding:

“He had time to reflect and correct things and come into World Cup even stronger. We know the kind of skill set he possesses alongside (Yuzvendra) Chahal. They are two pillars of our bowling line-up.”

Apart from the wristspin duo, India’s bowling lineup also consists of pacers Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammad Shami, while Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Vijay Shankar and Ravindra Jadeja provide them with ample backup. The Indian squad heading for England has also been widely touted as the strongest-ever in the history of all Indian World Cup teams.

India will begin their World Cup campaign on 5th June 2019, when they will face South Africa at the Ageas Rose Bowl, New Hampshire

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: England’s IPL star vows to get Virat Kohli out

On Tuesday, England announced their 15-man squad for the Cricket World Cup and Jofra Archer was named a part of the team. Archer marked his call-up by saying that he has his sights set on the big wicket of India’s Virat Kohli.

Archer, who has played just three one-day internationals so far, earned his name by playing in some the world’s best T20 leagues. Archer plays with the Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League (BBL) and Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Originally from Barbados, it was only in March 2019 that the youngster earned his qualification to play for England in international games.

After his World Cup selection, the Sussex pacer talked to Sky Sports and named Virat Kohli as the one cricketer he would love to dismiss in the upcoming tournament.

“I’d quite like to get Virat Kohli out because I wasn’t able to in the IPL,” Archer said, before adding: “And Chris Gayle as well.”

He went on to speak about how platforms like the IPL and the BBL have helped him prepare for the World Cup, despite having not spent much time with the England Cricket Team.

“I think I probably have a bigger advantage over some of the other guys in our team,” he said. “We play (these guys) twice a (season) in the IPL, so you know their weaknesses, you know their strengths, you know if they can’t run between the wickets… it gets you an extra bit of inside information.”

He added: “To be honest, I think international cricket is probably the same intensity as the IPL. I think the only thing that changes is the amount of overs.”

England will open their World Cup campaign on May 30th, when they host South Africa in the opening game of the competition. England is then set to face West Indies on June 14th and India on June 30th, which is when Archer will get the opportunities to dismiss Gayle and Kohli, respectively.

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Jofra Archer’s teams engage in hilarious twitter banter after his World Cup selection

On Tuesday, England Cricket Board (ECB) announced their squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. In a surprising yet sensational move, the selectors picked Jofra Archer as part of the 15-man squad.

Archer has been widely regarded as an up-and-coming all-rounder, thanks to his brilliant death-bowling abilities. He is also handy with the bat on most occasions. The youngster rose to fame by playing for the Big Bash League (BBL) side Hobart Hurricanes. Archer also plies his trade with the Indian Premier League (IPL) side the Rajasthan Royals and with Sussex Cricket in England.

As soon as the news of him getting picked for England’s World Cup squad was known to the public, Archer received an outpouring of wishes on Twitter. It was hence only fair that Rajasthan Royals joined in the proceedings, posting a tweet of their own to congratulate the star:

This is where the banter then started to take shape. Sussex Cricket appeared “displeased” at the Royals for claiming ownership of Archer, as they replied: “‘Your’ pace machine?”

Sussex’ response was then met with a laughing emoji, courtesy of Hobart Hurricanes, Archer’s third team:

Finally the youngster himself had to intervene, and he asked his teams to “play nicely”:

But the person handling Sussex’ Twitter account was evidently on a roll and that resulted in this piece of art:

Rajasthan Royals then proceeded to make a small correction, as they reminded everyone that Archer is England’s player as well:

The Twitter thread evidently had users in splits, one of them even terming the exchange between Sussex, Royals and Hurricanes as the “GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) Twitter thread”:

Some others tried to add to the fun, inviting Pakistan Super League (PSL) side Quetta Gladiators to chip in with a response, as Archer has played for them as well.

Moving on to other details, England’s World Cup campaign will begin on May 30th, when they are set to host South Africa at the Oval (London) on May 30th. Archer is expected to a key presence in the squad as the hosts look to win their maiden World Cup, on home soil.

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Pakistan cricketer posts controversial tweet regarding selection snub, later deletes it

On Monday the 20th of May, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) named a few key changes to their team ahead of the Cricket World Cup. Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz were selected in the 15-man squad whereas Junaid Khan failed to make the cut.

Both Amir and Wahab did not initially feature in the provisional squad and their hence their inclusion in the team was surprising to many. Amir did not play in the recent England series due to sickness and Wahab last played an ODI two years ago, against India in a losing cause in the Champions Trophy 2017.

“The rationale behind bringing him [Wahab Riaz] back is his ability to reverse swing the ball,” Inzamam-ul-Haq, Pakistan’s chief selector said. “Nobody expected the pitches in the UK to be flat even in the early season there (during the recent ODI series against England). So we have realised that and reviewed our selection.” In addition, it is also rumoured that Amir is a part of the squad solely based on his ability to take wickets in important matches.

Meanwhile, Junaid Khan was a part of Pakistan’s bowling line-up in the recent England series. Pakistan lost the contest 4-0 thanks to a sub-par display by the bowlers including Junaid himself.

“Junaid had been originally preferred over a few other bowlers based on their recent performances. They had the opportunity to cement their Word Cup spots, but they were well below-par in the series against England,” Inzamam said, explaining his omission.

The 29-year-old did not receive the news well, and he took to Twitter to express his unhappiness. He tweeted a picture of himself with his mouth sealed shut with black tape. In the caption he wrote, “I don’t want to say anything. Truth is bitter. (Sach karwa hota hai).”

The “unique” way of protest attracted the attention of Twitterati and soon the tweet got viral. Junaid eventually deleted the tweet but by then, it was too late.

Moving on, the World Cup begins on May 30th as hosts England take on South Africa in the opening game at The Oval, London. Pakistan’s first match is on May 31st, when they will face West Indies at Trent Bridge.

Surprising Barcelona star revealed to be Lionel Messi’s best partner in La Liga

Chilean star Arturo Vidal ended his debut La Liga season on a good note, finishing as Lionel Messi’s best partner in the competition.

The former Bayern Munich star did not start the year well but as the season progressed, Vidal moved from strength to strength to establish himself in a starting position under Ernesto Valverde. He even overtook the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele to emerge as someone that Valverde prefers more in  his starting XI.

Meanwhile, Marca reports that Vidal has also become one of Lionel Messi’s best allies on the field. The Chilean finished the season with seven assists, most of which were for the Argentine superstar.

Vidal’s latest assist came against SD Eibar in the final matchday of the La Liga this Sunday. Barcelona were trailing 1-0, when Vidal advanced into Eibar’s penalty area before passing the ball towards an unmarked Lionel Messi, who then had the simple job of tucking the ball into the net.

Overall, Vidal featured in 52 games across competitions this season, 33 of which came in the La Liga. He also scored three goals – one each against Real Madrid, Getafe and Real Betis.

Marca also reports that the star is most likely to feature in the starting XI for Barcelona in the upcoming Copa del Rey finals, where the Catalans will face Valencia on May 29th.

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Team India’s Rejected XI

The world’s largest and the most popular cricket tournament, the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is just few days away and the various participating teams are busy in preparations for the mega event.

The 2019 edition of the quadrennial tournament will be hosted by England and Wales and the games will begin on the 30th of May. Team teams – England, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and West Indies –  will compete against each other in the group stages, before the top-four teams enter the semi-finals.

Even though all the participating teams are strong enough to lay their hands on the trophy, a few teams have been labelled as favourites – one of them being Team India.

India have named a strong 15-man squad to play in the World Cup. They have an able captain in Virat Kohli, who is also the team’s best batsman if not the world’s best at the moment. Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, MS Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik will take up batting responsibilities alongside Kohli.

Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal are India’s front-line bowlers while the team also boasts of solid all-round options in Hardik Pandya, Vijay Shankar, Kedar Jadhav and Ravindra Jadeja.

India is a country known for brilliantly talented cricketers. While only 15 players could make it into the final World Cup squad, there definitely are quite a few stars who are unlucky not to have made the cut. Hence, today we will be discussing about a “rejected Indian XI” that could not only have played the tournament, but could also have given any opposing team a good run for their money.

That being said, here is the Team India Rejected XI:

Mayank Agarwal: Agarwal had a highly successful domestic season and he also played for India A against England Lions, Australia A, New Zealand A and South Africa A in 2018-19. He was excellent with the bat and along with Prithvi Shaw who is also his India A teammate, provided the team with much-needed stability in opening, that went on prove crucial in many victories.

Prithvi Shaw: Prithvi Shaw is one of the most exciting newcomers in Indian cricket. The youngster rose to fame in Mumbai’s cricketing circles as a 14-year-old and five years later, his cricketing prowess has only improved by leaps and bounds. Shaw is already a star in the IPL as well, for his side the Delhi Capitals.

Shubman Gill: Another young prodigy, Shubman Gill rose to fame in the U-19 Cricket World Cup in 2018. He scored a century against Pakistan and also played a few other innings that proved decisive in India’s title run in the global tournament. In the IPL, Gill plays for the Kolkata Knight Riders where he is a trusted top-order batsman.

Shreyas Iyer (captain): Shreyas Iyer is an important figure in Mumbai cricket and also for the Delhi Capitals in the IPL, where he is the captain. Iyer led DC to the playoffs in the 2019 IPL season – proving his captaincy powers. He is also a solid top-order batsman and recently clinched the record of striking the most sixes in a domestic T20I game in India (15).

Manish Pandey: Pandey is a trustworthy batsman irrespective of where he is placed in the batting order. He has also been a part of India’s first-class teams for the past few years now, which indicates that he is quite dependable with the willow.

Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper): Undoubtedly the next big thing in Indian Cricket, Rishabh Pant a.k.a “The babysitter” was touted to be named in the final squad for Team India in the World Cup but he missed out unfortunately as the selectors chose to go with Dinesh Karthik as their secondary wicket-keeping option. An able wicket-keeper batsman, Pant’s inclusion in this squad is a no-brainer.

Krunal Pandya: The elder brother of Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya is an equally-able all-rounder and have partnered Hardik at Mumbai Indians in the IPL for the past few seasons. Krunal recently made his international debut in Australia as well, where he was a moderate success. Krunal Pandya would be very useful for the team as a spin-bowling all-rounder who can also play the big shots when needed.

Ravichandran Ashwin: India’s front-line spinner for a long time, Ashwin was sidelined due to the sudden rise of the wrist-spin duo, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav. Ashwin, however continues to shine in the domestic circuit and also in the IPL, where he also captains Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). He was one of KXIP’s leading wicket-takers in the 2019 IPL season.

Deepak Chahar: Chahar plays for the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL, where he played a major role in their title win in 2018 and their run to the finals in 2019. A dangerous new-ball bowler, Chahar could make maximum use of the swinging English conditions to wreak havoc on the batsmen.

Khaleel Ahmed: Ahmed debuted for India in late 2018. An up-and-coming left-handed pacer, Ahmed is known for his sharp wicket-taking abilities. He could be a good option in the middle overs, when he relies on pace to take wickets.

Ishant Sharma: Ishant Sharma has been a consistent performer for Team India since 2008. He is an expert in Test cricket, while in limited-overs he is used only sparingly. That does not take away anything from the Delhi Capitals star, whose ability to maintain pace, line and length over long spells make him an useful bowler.

As you can see, Mayank Agarwal, Prithvi Shaw, Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey and Rishabh Pant would be the main batsmen, while Krunal Pandya would be the all-rounder option. Ashwin would be the front-line spinner with Pandya available as a secondary option. Deepak Chahar, Khaleel Ahmed and Ishant Sharma would be India’s pace-bowlers.

Shreyas Iyer led his Delhi Capitals (DC) side very well in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 and we need not looking beyond him for the role of captain. Rishabh Pant would be the automatic pick for keeping the wickets.
