I am Ayush Gupta, and I will be bringing to you all the live updates from this tie. England came up with a commendable performance in the opening T20I at Southampton, drubbing South Africa convincingly by nine wickets and draw first blood in the series. They will be looking forward to continue with the same winning momentum and seal the series with a win here. As for South Africa, they are certainly not a team to back down so easily and a great fightback could well be on the cards as they look to stay alive in the series. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: England vs South Africa 2017, 2nd T20I at Taunton Speaking of the opening T20I, South Africa managed to post only 142 for 3 in their stipulated 20 overs, courtesy AB de Villiers’ unbeaten 65, along with Farhaan Behardien’s unbeaten 64.England bowlers David Willey and Mark Wood gave South Africa a scare in the opening five overs, reducing them to 3 wickets. For England, they were off to a steady start during the chase, with openers Alex Hales and Jason Roy putting up a quick 45 in their stand. However, it was Jonny Bairstow, whose unbeaten 60 paved the way for England to complete the chase. ENG vs SA 2017, 2nd T20I at Taunton, preview and likely XI With the match being held at The Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton, the pitch would be interesting to see how it behaves. Usually, it is a batting paradise. This would also be the first T20I at this venue. England have played just an ODI at this venue on June 11, 1983, which was the opening international match at this venue off the three ODI matches, against Sri Lanka, where they won by 47 runs. Although the venue is an active T20 venue for county club Somerset, which has produced greats like Marcus Trescothick, it would be interesting to see how things go in the first ever T20I tie at this venue. South Africa coach Russell Domingo to fly back home post mother’s accident Squads: England: Eoin Morgan (c), Jonny Bairstow, Sam Billings (wk), Jos Buttler (wk), Mason Crane, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Jason Roy, Craig Overton, Liam Plunkett, David Willey, Mark Wood.

FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: England vs South Africa 2017, 2nd T20I at Taunton Jason Roy’s bizarre dismissal turned the second Twenty20 international’s South Africa’s way as the Proteas won by just three runs at Taunton on Friday. The narrow victory saw South Africa level the three-match series at 1-1 as they bounced back from a nine-wicket defeat by England in the series opener at Southampton on Wednesday to set-up a winner-takes-all clash in Cardiff on Sunday. England were on course for an unbeatable 2-0 lead while Roy (67) and Jonny Bairstow (47) shared a second-wicket stand of 110. But when Roy was given out obstructing the field — the first time this had happened in a T20 international — the innings fell away. FULL CRICKET UPDATES: England vs South Africa 2017, 2nd T20I at Taunton England’s cause was not helped by batting second under increasingly dark skies in a match that started at 1600 GMT despite a lack of floodlights on the ground, although home skipper Eoin Morgan did field first after winning the toss.

South Africa edge past England by 3 runs in 2nd T20I to stay alive in the series South Africa came up with a stellar performance © Getty ImagesVisitors South Africa came up with a stellar performance as they edged out hosts England by just three runs to win the second of the three-match Twenty20 International (T20I) at the County Ground in Taunton on Friday. With this win, South Africa stay alive in the series, as both the teams would not fight it out on Sunday at Cardiff in the decider. South Africa managed to put up a good total of 174 for the loss of eight wickets, courtesy opener JJ Smut’s 45 and skipper AB de Villiers‘s 46. In reply, England could manage 171 for the loss of six wickets, courtesy opener Jason Roy’s hard-fought 67 and Jonny Bairstow’s 47. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: England vs South Africa 2017, 2nd T20I at Taunton Earlier, England skipper Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to field first as he made three changes to his squad, with Tom Curran, Liam Livingstone and Liam Plunkett making their way in for Mark Wood, Alex Hales and Mason Crane. As for South Africa, Morne Morkel and Chris Morris made their way in, while the notable omission was in the form of leg-spinner Imran Tahir. The South African openers were off to a steady start. However, with just 25 runs on the board, Reeza Hendricks was cleaned up by debutant Tom Curran for mere seven. Nevertheless, Mangaliso Mohsele along with Smutss contributed to a 32-run stand before the former fell for mere 15 to Plunkett. It was again followed by a healthy 39-run stand Smuts and de Villiers, before the former fell short of his half-century by just five runs, as Dawson got rid of him in the 11th over. The skipper then held the fort, as he played a steady innings, while incoming batsman David Miller was dismissed for a cheap eight by Plunkett in the 14th over, as the score read 113. FULL CRICKET UPDATES: England vs South Africa 2017, 2nd T20I at Taunton Out came Farhaan Behardien to support de Villiers. However, just 14 runs later, the skipper too fell short of his half-century by just four runs, falling prey to David Willey. It was Behardien then, along with incoming Morris, who contributed 30 runs more before Morris fell for 12 to Curran. Following his dismissals, none of the other batsmen could contribute much, while Behardien too fell for 32 to Chris Jordan in the final over, as South Africa finished on a fair total of 174 for the loss of eight wickets, while Curran claimed 3 for 33. As England began the chase, they were off to a shaky start, with just 15 runs on the board, opener Sam Billings was dismissed for mere three by Morris in the second over. However, it was followed by an impressive 110-run stand for the second wicket between Jason Roy and Bairstow. As Roy contributed 54 runs in the stand, Bairstow fell short of his half-century by just three runs, after being dismissed by Morris in the 14th over. Meanwhile, Roy went on to score his second T20I half-century. However, just when it seemed he could steer England home, in the 18th over, as the score read 153, Roy was given out for obstructing the field. As Livingstone was batting, he defended the ball towards mid-off, while Roy went in for a run only to be denied by Livingstone. As Roy turned back to get back into the crease, he changed his run-up track and went on to the other side of the wicket, while a throw hit Roy, who was in line of the wicket. As the South Africans appealed, the umpires reviewed the decision, as the third umpire ruled it out on the grounds of the batsmen deliberately going across the wicket to come in line of the throw. Following his dismissal, the incoming batsmen could hardly contribute as the tide turned in favour of the South Africans. Although the match went to the last over and the final ball, with Dasona and Plunket could not do enough to hit the winning runs for his team, as England will have to wait until Sunday to stand a chance to win the series in Cardiff, while South Africa deservedly stay alive in the series, with a slender three-run win. Brief scores South Africa 174 for 8 in 20 overs (JJ Smuts 45, AB de Villiers 46; Tom Curran 3 for 33) beat England 171 for 6 in 20 overs (Jason Roy 67, Jonny Bairstow 47; Chris Morris 2 for 18) by 3 runs.

India vs West Indies, 1st ODI: Photos ◄ Back Next ► Picture 1 of 5 Ajinkya rahane scored a fine 67 © AFP Shikhar Dhawan extended his excellent ICC Champions Trophy form to the start of the West Indies tour but heavy rain forced the abandonment of the opening one-day international at the Queen’s Park Oval on Friday. Dhawan stroked an assured 87 and featured in an opening stand of 132 with Ajinkya Rahane (62) as the tourists reached 199 for three off 39.2 batting first when torrential midday showers curtailed their innings and no further play was possible. A no-result was declared in late afternoon when it became clear that prevailing conditions would not allow for a minimum 20 overs to be faced by the West Indies to constitute a match. Full Cricket Scorecard: India vs West Indies, 1st ODI After West Indies captain Jason Holder chose to field on winning the toss on a bright warm morning, India’s openers laid the foundation for a formidable total. They dominated a bowling attack that lacked genuine potency in the absence of injured fast bowler Shannon Gabriel, who has been ruled out of consideration for the first two ODIs after breaking down during the series against Afghanistan two weeks earlier. Rahane made the most of his opportunity with the experienced Rohit Sharma rested from this campaign following the Champions Trophy. He was first to the half-century mark but was also the first wicket to fall, deceived by a slower delivery from fast bowler Alzarri Joseph and offering a simple catch to Holder at mid-on. Dhawan was then joined by captain Virat Kohli and looked certain to complete an 11th ODI hundred only to fall leg-before to Devendra Bishoo 13 runs short of the landmark. Leg-spinner Bishoo, who was not considered for any of the three ODIs against the Afghans, was the pick of the bowlers with figures of one for 39 from his allotment of ten overs. As the skies clouded over India lost another wicket in attempting to accelerate with Yuvraj Singh becoming Joseph’s second wicket. Kohli and former captain MS Dhoni were playing with greater urgency when the showers first arrived with India at 189 for three off 38 overs. They resumed after half an hour but managed just another eight deliveries before the players were again chased off the field by a heavy downpour. Despite the best efforts of the groundstaff and the umpires, who were hoping to have the West Indies face 26 overs in pursuit of a target of 194 on the DLS method, no further play was possible. The second match of the five-game series takes place at the same venue on Sunday.

India vs West Indies, 1st ODI: Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane snitch record stand before rain abandons match © AFPLeaving off-field controversies behind, India commenced their 5 One-Day International (ODI) series against West Indies. The first ODI was being played at one of India’s happy hunting ground in West Indies, i.e. Port of Spain, Trinidad. West Indies put India to bat on a slow and two-paced wicket. It was the opening pair of Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane who took charge and got the side off to a flier, adding 132 runs for the opening wicket. Sadly for India, rains followed them from England to the Caribbean Islands ensuring no further play after 39 overs with the score reading 199 for 3 . As a result, the was called off with long rain interruptions and unfit ground conditions. Full Cricket Scorecard: India vs West Indies, 1st ODI Rahane and Dhawan, especially the former, took some time to get their eye in and move on. Dhawan, riding on his impeccable ODI form off late, continued to make merry. The pair got going and crossed the 50-run mark in 10th over. This was also the 5th consecutive 50-run stand between Dhawan and Rahane. The pair also became the third opening pair for India to cross the 100-run stand in West Indies (eventually surpassing the 123 run stand between Dhawan and Rohit Sharma in 2013). Rahane gained confidence and slammed his 17th ODI half-century in 67 balls. Following suit, Dhawan registered his 20th fifty in 71-deliveries. To add to the records, this was also the first instance of both Indian openers scoring fifties in West Indies. However, against the run of play, Rahane departed for 62 after Alzarri Joseph deceived him with a slower ball. He was early into the shot and managed to give Holder an easy catch at mid on. His wicket saw Virat Kohli join Dhawan in the middle. The pair added 36 runs in as many balls before Dhawan (87) was trapped leg before by Devendra Bishoo. Dhawan did challenge the decision but DRS had the last laugh. He eventually made 87 off 92 balls. Yuvraj Singh came at No. 4. On the score of 2, Yuvraj became the first Indian player to 500 ODI runs in West Indies. Nonetheless, the southpaw had a short stay in the middle, falling for 4 off 10 deliveries. With MS Dhoni’s arrival, even rain decided to make its presence felt and play was halted with India 189 for 3. After a gap of 45 minutes, game resumed for an over before another rain interruption. India, by then, had piled up 199 for 3 with Dhoni (9*) and Kohli unbeaten on 32. Incessant rain meant play being called off. For India, Kuldeep Yadav made his ODI debut. Kuleep become only the second left-arm chainman from Asia, after Sri Lanka’s Lakshan Sandakan, and the first chinaman bowler from India to don the natioanl jersey in ODIs. Both sides will now take on each other on June 25, Sunday, at the same venue in Queen’s Park Oval. Brief scores: India 199 for 3 in 39.2 overs (Shikhar Dhawan 87; Ajinkya Rahane 62, Virat Kohli 32*; Devendra Bishoo 1 for 39 ) vs West Indies.

ICC keen on Pakistan hosting T20Is vs World XI in September 2017 Pakistan won their maiden Champions Trophy title by beating India in summit clash © Getty ImagesPlans for the full resumption of international cricket in Pakistan moved forward Friday when the sport’s global governing body said it wanted to send a World XI to the country later this year. With the exception of Zimbabwe’s tour two years ago, Pakistan have had to play all of their ‘home’ matches outside of the country since a 2009 terror attack on Sri Lanka’s team bus in Lahore. But Friday saw the International Cricket Council (ICC), following the conclusion of its annual meeting in London, announce that plans for a World XI to play in Pakistan later this year were “continuing to be developed”. The ICC board said it had agreed to support a three-game T20 series between Pakistan and a World XI in a bid to help revive international cricket in the country. All the matches would take place in Lahore and be accorded full Twenty20 international status, the ICC said, adding “further details will be announced in due course.” After Pakistan’s stunning 180-run win over arch-rivals India in the final of ICC Champions Trophy at The Oval last week, coach Mickey Arthur said he hoped the visit of the World XI would go ahead. “We’re scheduled to have a World XI in Pakistan in September for three T20I games. So hopefully that starts paving the way for future tours. We can only hope”, he said. Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed added, “I hope this win will boost Pakistan cricket and all the (major) playing nations will come to Pakistan. Giles Clarke, the president of the England and Wales Cricket Board and head of the ICC’s Pakistan task force said, in comments reported by the Guardian in March, “The desire is to give the cricket-starved Pakistani supporters the chance to see some of the world’s finest players in live action. Furthermore, the terrorists cannot win and cricket must not give up on Pakistan.” Read More || However, JANTASHAKTI.COM does not confirm this news, I have taken this news from this link !

ICC Women’s World Cup 2017, New Zealand vs Sri Lanka, Preview: Inoka Ranaweera and co. look to shed off ‘underdog’ tag Can Sri Lanka break the jinx against New Zealand in World Cup? © Getty ImagesIn a tournament that is ruled by England Women and Australia Women, New Zealand Women are the only team to have earned a World Cup title as well. This year White Ferns will begin their ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 campaign against Sri Lanka Women in Bristol. Skipper Suzie Bates, who has led the side in 2009 and 2013 World Cup’s, enter this tournament along with three other players who remain constant from 2009 World Cup. Sri Lanka Women, on the other hand, have only one positive to take away from World Cup – beating India and England to gain the fifth position four years ago. While New Zealand hope to get off to a strong start, Sri Lanka would want to recreate the 2013 magic. New Zealand Women’s perspective: The third-ranked New Zealand side started their World Cup journey with a mixed performance in the warm-ups. Where they comfortably won against India, the home side got the better of White Ferns. However, New Zealand are coming to the World Cup with a strong squad. Suzie was awarded ICC ODI Player of the Year last year. Supporting her will be comeback player Sophie Devine. Sophie was the star of Big Bash League (BBL) smashing century for Adelaide Strikers. However, a thumb injury during BBL kept her away from the Australia series. Amy Satterthwaite is another player to watch out for with 2,970 runs at 37.59. She scored four consecutive boundaries last year to equal the record with Sri Lankan veteran Kumar Sangakkara. Amy has been the lynchpin of New Zealand batting and Suzie can rely on her with a bit of spin as well. However, the focus will be on 16-year-old Amelia Kerr who is skipping her high school purely for World Cup. Amelia, who made her debut last year, has already 10 wickets to her name from 7 ODIs at an economy rate of 3.89. She played a crucial role against Australia claiming best figures of 4 for 42, also claiming the prized scalpof Meg Lanning and likes. New Zealand’s pace-attack is also in place with newbie like Lea Tahuhu and Holly Huddleston handling the initial overs. Suzie can also seek Anna Peterson and Erin Birmingham’s help to bolster the pace-attack. Most of the players from the squad have also tasted the England conditions, courtesy – county cricket. New Zealand Likely XI: Suzie Bates (c), Rachel Priest, Amy Satterthwaite, Katey Martin (wk), Sophie Devine, Katie Perkins, Anna Peterson, Lea Tahuhu, Holly Huddleston, Amelia Kerr and Hannah Rowe. Sri Lanka Women’s perspective: Sri Lanka enter the World Cup tournament with an experienced lot. A total of 9 from the15 members in the squad have been part of the 2013 World Cup campaign. After a successful campaign in the World Cup Qualifiers finishing third, the selectors have persisted with the Inoka Ranaweera as the captain of the side. With the return of former captain Shashikala Siriwardene as well after injury lay-off, Inoka could get some help. With the bat Chamari Atapattu will be lead the side. She was the leading run-scorer for her side with tally of 155 runs. Her consistency in the warm-ups could be witnessed as well. Supporting her will be Nipuni Hansika, Prasadani Weerakkody and Dilani Manodara with the bat. Sri Lanka enter the campaign with four pacers. Udeshika Prabodhani, Eshani Lokusuriyage who guided Sri Lanka to victory against England in 2013 World Cup, Ama Kanchana – the all-rounder and Sripali Weerakkody will be the go-to-bowlers for Inoka. With Shashikala’s return to the spin department, who is the leading wicket-taker with 106 wickets and willbe seen along with Chandima Gunaratne and Chamari also another option handy. Sri Lanka Likely XI: Nipuni Hansika, Hasini Perera, Chamari Atapattu, Dilani Manodara, Prasadani Weerakkody (wk), Shashikala Siriwardene, Eshani Lokusuriyage, Sripali Weerakkody, Inoka Ranaweera (c), Udeshika Prabodhani and Chandima Gunaratne. Recent ODI form: New Zealand Women in 2016-17 (W – 17, L – 7) Sri Lanka Women in 2016-17 (W – 6, L – 19) World Cup journey for both sides: Where New Zealand have been part of all the 11 World Cup editions, Sri Lanka were part of the tournament since 1997. New Zealand have reached the finals four times and won only once. Out of the 74 World Cup matches they have played, New Zealand boasts of win-loss ratio of 48:23. New Zealand Women in World Cup Year Position 1973 Third position 1978 Third position 1982 Third position 1988 Third position 1993 Finalists 1997 Finalists 2000 Winners 2005 Semi-Finalists 2009 Finalists 2013 Super Six stage Sri Lanka, on the other hand, have managed only 7 wins in 28 matches. Their best remains from the previous edition where they finished at No. 5 in the Super Six stage. Sri Lanka Women in World Cup Year Position 1997 Fourth Position (Group B) 2000 Sixth Position 2005 Sixth Position 2009 Fourth Position (Group B) 2013 Fifth Position Head-to-head record of both teams in World Cup: New Zealand clearly hold an upper-hand against with tally of 4-0 over Sri Lanka.

India vs England, ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 preview and likely XIs: Battle of the equals India Women will take on England Women in match no.2 of the WWC 2017After the hype of the recently concluded ICC Champions Trophy 2017, it is now time for the world to witness the might of the women with the commencement of the ICC Women’s World Cup. Fought between eight sides, the ICC Women’s World Cup, which is held by six-time Champions Australia, will face tough competition from England, India, New Zealand and Pakistan. In only the second match of the tournament one will see hosts’ England take on the buoyant India at Derby. While England gained automatic qualification as host nation, India fought their way though a Qualifier tournament in February 2017. Statically speaking England hold quite a lead over India, winning 34 of the 61, while losing just 25 with 2 games ending in no-result. Sadly for India, the trend is the same when it comes to ODIs in England versus the hosts; the win loss ratio being 21:4. But as one saw in the final of the Champions Trophy, numbers are just for the appeasement of the heart and nothing more when it comes to cricket. Match of the equals: Speaking about form, England have been like a run-away train, hardly a bump. In both their warm-up matches they were clinical and through professional; beating both Sri Lanka and New Zealand. England’s last loss in an ODI came way back in October 2016 against West Indies in Kingston. Since then England have hardly dropped the ball. India, on the hand, have dictated teams left, right and centre across 2017. India’s 16-match winning streak started with a victory over Australia in Hobart in February 2016 then move into the bilateral series Sri Lanka and West Indies. During the same period India also participated in the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifiers 2017 to come out as tournament winners. The streak ended when they were handed a 8-run defeat by South Africa recently. Players to look out for: England had a major boost ahead of the tournament after Sarah Taylor announced her return after a leave of absence. Taylor is widely regarded as one of the best keepers in the women’s game. Her presence along with the likes of Heather Knight and Tammy Beaumont adds stability to a young side. The opening pair of Beaumont and Lauren Winfield have enjoyed a rather successful few months, raking up 1,050 runs between them in 11 matches. Sadly for England, Lauren has been ruled out. England’s success will lie on how well their star bowlers Anya Shrubsole and Katherine Brunt perform. Anya along with Laura Marsh and Danielle Hazell will be keenly looked. India, too have a good blend of youth and experience in their side. Starting with skipper Mithali Raj, who has been in quite the purple patch recently will form the fulcrum of the batting unit. Harmanpreet Kaur undergoing a rough patch will want to let her bat speak than anything else. The thought of seeing the likes of Mona Meshram Sharma, Poonam Raut, Smriti Mandhana and Veda Krishnamurthy in England is an exciting prospect for all. All these women have been churning out runs like anything in the past few series and will be eyeing the same. The wily-old fox Jhulan Goswami, who is also the highest wicket taker in women’s ODI history, will marshal bowling duties. She will be joined by Shikha Pandey, who herself has been on a rampage recently. Spinning duties will be taken care by Ekta Bisht, Rajeswari Gayakwad and Deepti Sharma. Likely XIs: India Women: Poonam Raut, Smriti Mandhana, Mithali Raj(C), Harmanpreet Kaur, Mona Meshram, Deepti Sharma, Shikha Pandey, Sushma Verma (wk), Ekta Bisht, Jhulan Goswami, Rajeshwari Gayakwad England Women: Katherine Brunt, Anya Shrubsole, Danielle Hazell, Danielle Wyatt, Fran Wilson, Alex Hartley, Heather Knight (C), Natalie Sciver, Laura Marsh, Sarah Taylor (wk), Tammy Beaumont (10:30 local | 09:30 GMT | 15.00 IST) Read More || However, JANTASHAKTI.COM does not confirm this news, I have taken this news from this link !

India arrive in West Indies ahead of ODI, T20I series India start favourites for the series comprising five ODIs and a T20 International © Getty ImagesPort of Spain (Trinidad): The Indian cricket team arrived for a limited-overs series against the West Indies amid the off-field drama surrounding Anil Kumble‘s resignation as head coach following a rift with captain Virat Kohli. The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) posted a photo of Kohli and opposition captain Jason Holder at the team hotel. India, who lost to Pakistan in the Champions Trophy final at The Oval on Sunday, start favourites for the series comprising five ODIs and a T20 International. The series-opener will be played here on Friday. While Kumble has given his side of the story, Kohli is yet to speak about the differences with the former Indian spinner, who stepped down yesterday as the team boarded the flight to the Caribbean from London. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs West Indies 2017, 1st ODI at Port of Spain Batting coach Sanjay Bangar and fielding coach R Sridhar have travelled with the team to the West Indies. West Indies, currently ninth in the ODI rankings, failed to qualify for the Champions Trophy where the top eight teams battled it out for top honours. India had toured the West Indies last year for a four- match Test series which the visitors won 2-0.
