ICC Champions Trophy 2017: Australia begin training at London Australia will play the first warm-up game against Sri Lanka on May 26 © Getty ImagesWhile a few Australian players are still playing in the playoffs of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017, some have already started preparations for ICC Champions Trophy 2017. Four members of the squad along with coach Darren Lehmann will leave for England soon. All-rounder Marcus Stoinis, pace duo Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc, and wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade are already training at Bupa National Centre in Brisbane. Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell and Pat Cummins, who just returned after their stint in IPL, have already reached England. These players will soon be joined by their teammates David Warner and Moises Henriques after their franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) were eliminated on Thursday. Marcus Stoinis declared fit for ICC Champions Trophy 2017 Touchdown London….. Thank you to everyone in India, my @thegujaratlions team mates and all the staff for making it another very special @iplt20 experience. The results didn’t go our way but we gave it a crack and had a lot of fun along the way! Thank you India A post shared by Aaron Finch (@aaronfinch5) on May 14, 2017 at 11:23am PDT Chris Lynn, if Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) lose in Qualifier 2, will join the list of these players as well. Otherwise, he will travel with Australia skipper Steven Smith and leg-spinner Adam Zampa after the IPL final on Sunday. As for the remaining members, James Pattinson and John Hastings are already getting accustomed to the English conditions through their County stint for Nottinghamshire and Worcestershire respectively. The Champions Trophy is less than two weeks away with the warm-up games beginning on May 26. The first warm-up match will be played between Australia and Sri Lanka at The Oval. As for the main tournament, Australia will begin their Champions Trophy journey against New Zealand on June 2 at Edgbaston. Speaking to the reporters, Smith stated that IPL plays a crucial role for the preparations, “Playing in IPL is great ahead of the Champions Trophy. It is always good to play white-ball cricket before such a big tournament. Though the format is different, we are playing with world-class players.” Meanwhile, Wade mentioned that Starc, Hazlewood and himself have benefitted from the break, “The luxury we have is two practice games which you don’t normally get before a tournament. That’s enough game-wise to go up to a tournament, plus we have 10 days training, which is also rare before a tournament,” as quoted cricket.com.au.

IPL 2017: “Individual brilliance wins you matches, teamwork wins you championships,” says Rohit Sharma
IPL 2017: “Individual brilliance wins you matches, teamwork wins you championships,” says Rohit Sharma Rohit Sharma became the first captain to lead a side to three IPL titles © BCCIRohit Sharma laid his hands on the coveted Indian Premier League (IPL) title once again when Mumbai Indians (MI) beat Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) by 1 run in a low-scoring affair. This was MI’s third title, but RPS, who had already beaten MI thrice in the tournament, had to settle for the second place in only their second season. Rohit, who was not particularly in good form in the tournament, believes that teamwork wins tournaments, while individual brilliance will win you just matches, and that is exactly what happened to MI this season. MI finished at top of the table in the group stages this time, just ahead of RPS. Full Cricket Scorecard: Rising Pune Supergiant vs Mumbai Indians, IPL 2017 Final at Hyderabad “I feel individual brilliance can win you a few games, but what is required to win a championship is team unity and team work. These are the factors which I believe personally is very critical to win a championship,” Rohit said in the post-match press conference. Rohit feels that is important to get the combinations right at the early stages of the tournament and that all three MI titles have been special for him. “All three titles are special. I personally feel it is how you prepare at the start of the tournament, getting your combinations right. I feel that is the most critical part of winning a tournament,” he said. Mitchell Johnson had 11 runs to defend in the final over of the match. Rohit praised the veteran Australian bowler for a superb performance, who finished with figures of 3 for 26 from his 4 overs. “We got some proven match-winners in our squad. Mitchell Johnson is a proven customer. He [Johnson] proved again and again playing for Australia and he has done it for Mumbai as well. He has been in that atmosphere before for us. Yes, I could happily rely on him when I needed the most. The last over was very crucial. It was fantastic to have him throughout the season,” the Mumbai skipper said. READ: IPL 2017 Final: Knew Johnson would take MI home, says Bumrah When quizzed about MI’s strategy against a set Steven Smith, Rohit said, “There was no specific strategy. We just wanted to make it difficult by not giving him [Smith] pace. What we saw, he was trying to use the pace of bowlers. That’s something me and Johnson discussed. He [Johnson] was bowling against the wind. So, we wanted Smith to hit into the wind. That will make it difficult for him.” Mumbai Indians managed to reach 129, but Rohit felt they were about 20 to 30 runs short. He also praised Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah and Krunal Pandya for their excellent performances. “Our target on this wicket was 140 to 160. 160 on this wicket probably would have been a match-winning score,” he said. “Cricket is all about experience. You will always have some experienced and proven match winners and some inexperienced in your squad. I personally felt at the start of the tournament, it’s always good to have five bowlers theory,” he said. Rohit said that thinking of becoming the Indian captain one day would be thinking “too far ahead.” READ: Parthiv credits Mitchell Johnson’s final-over heroics for Mumbai Indians’ (MI) success “It’s thinking too far ahead. I don’t think too far ahead. When the opportunity comes, it comes. I will grab it with both hands,” he said.

Junctures where Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) lost IPL 2017 plot against Mumbai Indians (MI) We are living in a T20-dominated world where chasing 10 to 12 an over has become a norm © BCCIDid Mumbai Indians (MI) eventually crack the Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) code? Or was it simply the occasion and pressure of the stage that got the better of Pune? We are living in a T20-dominated world where chasing 10 to 12 an over has become a norm. All Pune needed was less than six-and-a-half an over. Pune had completed a hat-trick of wins against an impressive Mumbai outfit this season, but they chose to crack on the day it mattered. Eventually it was a solitary run that made the difference to the grand Maharashtra derby at Hyderabad and here are the moments where Pune lost the plot. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) vs Mumbai Indians (MI), IPL 2017 Final at Hyderabad Leaking at the death: Pune’s bowlers had done all the hard work to have Mumbai reeling at 92 for 7 after 17 overs. Two days prior, Mumbai had Kolkata Knight Riders in a similar position. Mumbai dismantled Kolkata for 107 that night. Pune gave away 37 runs off the last 3 overs. There is no doubt that Krunal Pandya was brilliant, but he was helped by some ordinary bowling from Dan Christian. There were length balls, not according to the field. Mitchell Johnson was allowed to free his arms. It was only in the 19th over when MI crossed the six-an-over mark for the first time in the game. The last over cost Pune 14. A four and a six off Krunal’s bat can be excused, but there were two wides as well. Was it a case of complacency? Mumbai Indians (MI) in IPL 2017: Marks out of 10 for Rohit Sharma-led champions In the end, every run mattered. RPS’s brilliant bowling throughout the innings but in hindsight, Christian’s 26 off last 2 hurt the side, as did the 5 wides they bowled during the innings. Tame Powerplay: Ajinkya Rahane found form in the end stages of the tournament. Steven Smith has been scoring from the start. And yet, Pune went for a cautious approach in the Powerplay. Mumbai had, in fact, employed five different bowlers in the first 5 overs. Rahane was dropped by Krunal off Lasith Malinga. It was nothing short of a sitter. Rahane did make use of the opportunity, but Smith was happy to stay at the crease without trying to accelerate when the field was inside. Earlier, the otherwise flamboyant Rahul Tripathi went for an ultra-cautious approach. RPS were 38 for 1 after 6 overs. RPS vs MI, IPL 2017 final: Rohit attains new high, Smith’s misfortune and other highlights The curious case of Pune’s No. 4: Too much of shuffling in the batting order has not helped Manoj Tiwary’s case. Tiwary has been one of the most consistent performers for Pune this season. He has played those blinders towards the end of the innings several times this season. Rahane fell for an attractive 38-ball 44 in the 12th over when the score read 71. With Smith sort of struggling at 18 from 25 balls, Pune could have sent in Tiwary. MS Dhoni walked out instead. Was there need for machismo and finishing things in style with a six? Or was getting the scoreboard to move the need of the hour? Fairytales are often not repeated. It is not wise to expect them daily. Dhoni and Smith have struggled when they have batted together. With the required run-rate close to seven-and-a-half, their partnership hurt Pune’s case. Rohit goes past Dhoni, Gambhir; other statistical highlights from IPL 2017 final The Dhoni-Smith stand: Dhoni has been a shadow of his pristine past this IPL. The number of dot balls he has played has hurt Pune many times throughout the tournament. Smith and Dhoni consumed too many balls and were guilty of not rotating the strike. Criticism of Dhoni is often considered blasphemous by most Indian fans. To most he is the protagonist or the victim or the unsung hero. The usual scapegoats in these cases are unsung men like Tiwarys and Christians. In franchise cricket, if you pocket bigger amounts and are a superstar, you should be the one taking onus. Smith and Dhoni added 27 from 27 balls. By the time Dhoni departed the required run rate had shot up to eight-and-a-half. By the end of the game both had played a total of 25 dot balls. Rohit’s Midas touch in IPL finals and other stats in statistical preview from RPS and MI clash Keeping it for too late: Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah are two of the finest death bowlers in limited-overs cricket. If Bumrah can restrict the likes of Brendon McCullum and Aaron Finch to 5 runs in a Super Over, it is a tough task to score 10 off them at death, on a surface that was not very easy to bat on. That was probably the time they needed a Dhoni more than a Tiwary, for while Tiwary can get those boundaries away, Dhoni has the power to clear the ground even if with mis-hits. And if Tiwary has to bat that late, they should probably have promoted a competent slogger like Christian. Smith’s six off Burmah in the penultimate over got Pune back in the contest. He had moved to 51 from 49, and it was the slowest fifty this IPL. With no Ben Stokes, Pune were batting with one less batter. That probably made Smith want to bat till the end. Tiwary’s brain-fade: Tiwary is no rookie. He was one of the big buys in the inaugural IPL. He is a domestic stalwart. He leads one of the high-profile sides in domestic cricket. He has been in the situation before. Remember, he scored 2 boundaries off Dwayne Bravo in the final over to help KKR lift their maiden IPL Trophy in 2012. This was a similar job. He started well with a smartly placed boundary, bringing the equation down to 7 off 5 balls. So far, so good: singles could have done the job at this point. Unfortunately, in a moment of madness Tiwary looked to clear the long-on only to find the patrolling Kieron Pollard. Of course, one must credit Mitchell Johnson for altering the length and not bowling too full. That was the first hammer to the nail. Smith’s freak dismissal: Seven from 4 with Smith on strike. Four out 5 times you would expect the batting side to win. Unfortunately, this was that other occasion. Smith went deep into the crease. He sliced one brilliantly over extra-cover. On another day we would have praised Smith’s batsmanship and array of strokes. Unfortunately, the flat trajectory meant that and the ball came swerving to Ambati Rayudu at sweeper cover. Rayudu, the only fielder placed outside the ring on the off-side, took it at an awkward height. Smith took the long walk back: 7 from 3, Johnson the bowler and a teenage Washington Sundar the batsman, Mumbai had sealed it there. “When you’re three down for a majority of your innings you should be winning that game. They let the rate climb, they were too cautious up front in the first 11 or 10 overs,” said Ajit Agarkar in his analysis for ESPNCricinfo. It sums up the rest. Credit to Mumbai bowlers. Credit to Rohit Sharma’s belief and leadership. Fairytales do not happen every day, I say at the risk of repeating myself. It is not wise to expect them either. Jay, Mahi, Smithy — as the meme goes — had their highs this season. But the final came as a reality check: as all we know, cricket has no place for Amarendra Baahubali. Smith is a human, as is Dhoni.

Russell Domingo all-praise for Kagiso Rabada ahead of ODI series in England Kagiso Rabada has grabbed a total of 57 wickets in 34 matches he played in the 50-over format © Getty ImagesMelbourne: South Africa coach Russell Domingo has lavished praise on fast bowler Kagiso Rabada by comparing him with the country’s pace spearhead Dale Steyn as the 21-year-old begins a huge northern summer with the three-match ODI series against England, starting on Wednesday at the Headingley. Proteas will be without their key bowler Steyn for the England series as well as for the Champions Trophy and Test matches that follow as he continues to recover from a shoulder surgery. Meanwhile, Rabada, who made his ODI debut in July 2015, has grabbed a total of 57 wickets in 34 matches he played in the 50-over format since then. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: England vs South Africa 2017, 1st ODI at Headingley With Rabada establishing himself as one of the most complete fast bowlers at the moment, Domingo has pinned high hopes on him in the absence of Steyn. Admitting that Rabada can be as good as Steyn, Domingo said that the young fast bowler is a fantastic prospect for his side and that they are expecting good contribution from him in the upcoming tour. “He could be as good as Steyn. He’s a fantastic prospect for us and we’re expecting really big things from him this tour.He’s got pace and he’s got a wonderful head on his shoulders, with a great outlook on life . just very simplistic and calm,” cricket.com.au quoted Domingo as saying. ENG-SA seek lead with one eye on CT 2017 Domingo further insisted that Rabada’s excellent physical condition can also prove beneficial in his bid to steer clear of injury, which is a part and parcel of every paceman’s career. Describing Rabada as their `special` cricketer, Domingo admitted that the former is a fantastic bowler who needs to be managed carefully. “If he takes his shirt off you can see why he doesn’t get too many injuries – he’s an unbelievable athlete.He is built unbelievably well for a fast bowler,” the Proteas coach said. “We have to manage him because he’s a fantastic bowler who plays all formats for us and we have to be careful how we play him because he’s a special cricketer,” he added. The fiery right-arm quick also finished with the figures of two for 26 in South Africa’s warm-up clash against Northamptonshire on Sunday.

Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) vs Mumbai Indians (MI), IPL 2017 Final, preview and likely XIs: Hyderabad gears up for the Maratha war The venue for the Maharashtraderby is Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad © BCCIThe state of Maharashtra has a special place in Indian cricket. The state boasts of three domestic cricket sides — Mumbai, Maharashtra and Vidarbha. Last year, a majority of the home matches for Mumbai and Pune had to be shifted because of drought. Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017: After 59 matches, we have the two finalists, the sides from Maharashtra — Mumbai Indians (MI) and Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) — tussling for the trophy. The venue for the Maharashtraderby is Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) vs Mumbai Indians (MI) – Final In a way, it is only fair that two of the best sides in the tournament are clashing for the final. Mumbai finished on top and Pune at the second spot. However, to Pune’s advantage, they have completed a hat-trick of wins against the most balanced unit in the tournament. MI start favourites against a Ben Stokes-less RPS side but haven’t we said this before… Head-to-head For some inexplicable reasons, Mumbai have failed to crack the Pune code. Or it may be the case that Pune had reserved their best against their neighbours. RPS have won four out of the five games against MI thus far. RPS finished seventh in the last edition thanks to MS Dhoni-six off the last ball, which prevented them the last spot. Having won one out of their first four matches this season, they bagged nine wins from their next 11 encounters. “You really need to peak at the right time in tournaments like this,” RPS skipper Steven Smith is spot on. News from the centre Hyderabad has dished out batting-friendly surfaces this year with 170 being the average. Win toss and bat first may not be wrong move here. In this season, five out of seven times the team batting first has won the contest here. Ben Stokes, the highest-paid overseas player ever in IPL, played a crucial role in RPS’ qualification to the playoffs, from where they took a shorter route to the summit clash. Stokes’ absence will continue to hurt RPS and the decision they will need to ponder over is the replacement. Should they continue with Lockie Ferguson’s extra pace or strengthen the batting with Usman Khawaja? Mumbai too, have enough to worry about. Lendl Simmons has not really fired and therefore Jos Buttler will be missed. It would not be an unwise decision to have Rohit Sharma open the innings with Nitish Rana coming back in the middle-order. Play three overseas players if need be. Also, there will be a dilemma between the choosing of the Mitchells. Mitchell McClenaghan’s injury has been an opening for Mitchell Johnson, who has done reasonably well as a replacement. So who to go for will be a question MI will be scratching their head over? Likely XIs Karn Sharma’s match-winning feat in Qualifier 2 against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will see him earn a spot ahead of the veteran Harbhajan Singh. Also to Karn’s advantage, he knows the venue well having previously played for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Asela Gunaratne could have added more to MI’s batting armoury but an IPL finale might not be the right spot to hand someone debut. Johnson should only play if McClenaghan continues to remain unfit. Mumbai Indians Probable XI: Parthiv Patel (wk), Rohit Sharma (c), Nitish Rana, Ambati Rayudu, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Karn Sharma, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah RPS will not want to tinker with their winning combination that upset MI at Wankhede Stadium on Tuesday. However, they are a batsman short and the onus lies on the top four (Rahul Tripathi, Ajinkya Rahane, Smith and Manoj Tiwary) to provide the stability in the middle. Meanwhile, this will be a big game for Adam Zampa, who has the massive boots of Imran Tahir to fill in. Not very far from Hyderabad, in Visakhapatnam, Zampa had claimed a six-for last season. Rising Pune Supergiant XI: Rahul Tripathi, AjinkyaRahane, Steven Smith (c), Manoj Tiwary, MS Dhoni (wk), Dan Christian, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Lockie Ferguson, Jaydev Unadkat, Adam Zampa Key Clashes MS Dhoni vs Rohit Sharma: This is Rohit’s fourth IPL final, while Dhoni’s seventh. In fact, every time Mumbai have played an IPL final they have found Dhoni in the opponent. Rohit has won three IPL as a player, two for MI. This is Dhoni’s chance to equalise Rohit. Jaydev Unadkat vs Hardik Pandya: Hardik Pandya has been sensational at the end. Meanwhile, Unadkat will be bowling a few at the death. Can Hardik meet out a treatment to Unadkat that he dished out to Ashok Dinda? If Unadkat bags another five-for, the Purple Cap will be his. Manoj Tiwary vs Karn Sharma and Krunal Pandya: Tiwary was guilty of slowing things down in the previous game, especially against the MI spinners. He did score a crucial fifty but this time around, he will have to step up against the street-smart MI spinners. While Karn has kept Harbhajan out of MI XI, Tiwary has been one of the most consistent performers for RPS. However, against Krunal his strike rate this season is a low 83. Washington Sundar vs Ambati Rayudu: The 17-year-old off-spinner foxed the experienced Rayudu in the Qualifier 1 as the latter departed for a duck. Expect a vengeance time. Steven Smith vs Jasprit Bumrah: Bumrah is amongst the smartest bowlers in limited-overs cricket. He has bowled the most in the last five overs this season. He excelled in Super-Over. His 3-1-7-3 against KKR in the second qualifier swung things in MI’s favour. Smith meanwhile is one of the finest batters in the world. How they counter each other will determine a chunk of this contest. Ajinkya Rahane vs Mumbai Indians: Yes. Rahane may not have scored the desired runs this season (338 at 24.14 and SR of 118.6) but against MI he has a knack of picking up his game. He has already scored two fifties against MI this season. His overall numbers against MI reads — 224 runs at an average of 56 and a strike rate of 143.6. Pune, whose two-year run along with Gujarat Lions (GL) ends this season, may well play their last game in IPL. They were denied an extension by the governing council early this month. We do not know what will happen to the team once Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) return but this is their chance to create history. For Mumbai, if they bag this crown, they will eclipse KKR and CSK and end up being the only side with three titles to their name. Squad Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (c), Parthiv Patel (wk), Nicholas Pooran (wk), Krishnappa Gowtham (wk), Ambati Rayudu (wk), Lendl Simmons (wk), Kulwant Khejroliya, Karn Sharma, Saurabh Tiwary, Asela Gunaratne, Mitchell Johnson, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell McClenaghan, Shreyas Gopal, Siddhesh Lad, Vinay Kumar, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Tim Southee, Lasith Malinga, Jagadeesha Suchith, NitishRana, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Jitesh Sharma, Deepak Punia Rising Pune Supergiant: Steven Smith (c), MS Dhoni (wk), Mayank Agarwal, Baba Aparajith, Ankush Bains, Ankit Sharma, Rajat Bhatia, Deepak Chahar, Daniel Christian, Rahul Chahar, Ashok Dinda, Lockie Ferguson, Usman Khawaja, Jaskaran Singh, Saurabh Kumar, Milind Tondon, Manoj Tiwary, Jaydev Unadkat, Adam Zampa TIME: 14.30 GMT | 20.00 IST Read More || However, JANTASHAKTI.COM does not confirm this news, I have taken this news from this link !

British tip-off led to PSL scandal: ICC Ronnie Flanagan © Getty ImagesBritain’s National Crime Agency provided the initial intelligence that helped uncover a major spot-fixing scandal in the Pakistan Super League, a leading official from world cricket’s governing body said Thursday. Sir Ronnie Flanagan, head of the International Cricket Council’s anti-corruption and safety unit (ACSU) was speaking to reporters in Lahore after testifying in a case against opening batsman Sharjeel Khan, who has been provisionally suspended by his board since the scandal erupted in February. Fast bowler Mohammad Irfan and spinner Mohammad Nawaz have already been banned for six months with six suspended, and one month with one suspended, respectively after confessing to failing to report offers to fix matches. Opening batsmen Khalid Latif, Shahzaib Hasan and Nasir Jamshed, who did not feature in the tournament, have been charged with more serious offences, and face bans ranging from five years to life if found guilty. Flanagan, head of the ACSU since 2010, said: “The inquiry was absolutely led by the PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) throughout and our role was simply that before the PSL match we received intelligence that was passed to us by the British National Crime Agency.” Sharjeel was charged for failing to report an offer to fix and for playing two ‘dot balls’ (balls from which a batsman does not score) in exchange for money. Latif, whose proceedings will begin later, was charged for luring others to spot fixing. Flanagan added: “As chairman of the ICC’s ACSU and I work very closely with the domestic anti-corruption units across the world, whatever is the outcome of this case, I would say that the PCB and its unit in this entire process have demonstrated a great determination to keep cricket clean.” Sharjeel’s lawyer said Islamabad United coach Dean Jones, a former Australian batsman, former Pakistan captain Mohammad Yousuf and former Pakistan opener Sadiq Mohammad will appear as witnesses for his defence next week. The ICC formed the ACSU in 2001 following life bans on South African captain Hansie Cronje, Pakistan’s Salim Malik and India’s Mohammad Azharuddin after fixing inquiries by their respective countries.

Australia’s vice-captain David Warner this week warned that Cricket Australia “might not have a team for the Ashes” unless they back down on implementing a new pay structure for contracted players.The Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper in the Indian Premier League also suggested there are plenty of lucrative opportunities elsewhere given the rise of domestic Twenty20 tournaments around the globe. “It’s not on our radar – we are paid very well and looked after by the ECB and the PCA. What lies ahead lies ahead, and we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it,” Woakes, who played for Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL and is due to join England’s training camp in Spain, was quoted as saying by Sky Sports. “It sounds like the (Australia) players are standing firm for what they believe in. If it gets to the stage where the Ashes are under threat, of course, it would be a shame for it to not go ahead. It’s the pinnacle…but we are concentrating on what comes next,” he added.

Ranji Trophy 2017-18: Captains favour Home-and-Away format over neutral venues “An overwhelming majority [of captains and coaches] wanted to go back to the home and away concept,” said a Ranji Trophy skipper © Getty Images (Representational Image)Mumbai: The concept of going back to the home and away format in Ranji Trophy games after one year’s experiment with neutral venue format found favour from the majority of participants in the BCCI‘s captains-cum-coaches conclave on Tuesday. “An overwhelming majority [of captains and coaches] wanted to go back to the home and away concept,” said a Ranji Trophy skipper after the conclusion of the two-hour meeting that discussed “every aspect of BCCI tournaments”, according to BCCI’s acting secretary, Amitabh Chaudhry. “There were views supporting both the formats.
