IPL 2017: Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) bundle out Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) for just 73 in match 55 of IPL 10 Shardul Thakur celebrates the wicket of Kings XI Punjab captain Glenn Maxwell © BCCIRising Pune Supergiant (RPS) took on Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in a virtual knockout match in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 on the last double-header weekend. Kings XI Punjab’s luck continued to evade them as RPS won the toss and put the visitors into bat. It was a combination of horrible batting by Kings XI Punjab, brilliant fielding and smart bowling by trio of Jaydev Unadkat, Shardul Thakur and Daniel Christian that put RPS in a position of power in the match. Kings XI Punjab showed no resolute in the middle despite playing one extra batsmen, while Rising Pune Supergiant’ rose to the occasion and bundled out visitors for 73. If Rising Pune Supergiant win this match they will qualify for the IPL 10 Qualifier to go up against Mumbai Indians (MI). The chase now looks like a formality. Full Cricket Scorecard: Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) vs Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), IPL 2017, Match 55 at Pune RPS got off to a excellent start nabbing Martin Guptill on the very first ball of the match. Unadkat who has been a revelation for RPS asked Guptill to play away from his body and the latter obliged. As expected Shaun Marsh came out at No.3 to partner Wriddhiman Saha. Saha meanwhile was lucky to be dropped in the Undakat’s second over by MS Dhoni. Marsh’s stay in the middle only lasted 13 balls before he lobed a dolly to his Australian teammate Steven Smith off Shardul Thakur for 10. Saha was joined by Eoin Morgan in only the 4th over, playing his fourth match for Kings XI Punjab this season. Morgan’s time in the middle was cut short by Unadkat who ran him out on the non-strikers end for 4. Rahul Tewatia strangely came out above skipper Glenn Maxwell at No.5. He too after hitting a boundary went back in the dressing room. Tewatia in an attempt to pull a short-ball managed to lob the ball to a flying Unadkat at short fine leg. Maxwell came out in the middle and went back to the pavilion after facing just 3 balls. Maxwell went after a wide delivery and gave a simple flick straight into the hands of Ajinkya Rahane off Thakur; his second in the over. After a few wicket less overs, the first over after strategic timeout by Christian induced Saha to a false shot. Playing away from his body, Saha got a thick edge to Dhoni for a 17-ball 13. Akshar Patel after playing a steady hand of 22, handed Dhoni a very easy catch off a nothing shot against Christian. This was also Dhoni’s 100 dismissal in IPL. Swapnail Singh followed suit and was caught behind. The ball rebounded off Christian’s palms and Dhoni made no mistake. KXIP continued to give wickets away with Ishant Sharma throwing away his wicket to Adam Zampa for 1. Zampa concluded the KXIP innings getting Mohit Sharma for a 12-ball 6 that saw visitors finish on 73. This is also the lowest total for KXIP in IPL beating their previous best of 88 versus Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

Jos Buttler’s ‘fanboy moment’ courtesy Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and when he went home ‘crying’ because of Aravinda de Silva © Getty ImagesJos Buttler is a household name. Thanks to those effortless towering sixes, England cricket, especially in limited-overs, has only benefitted. Buttler had played a crucial role in Mumbai Indian’s (MI) campaign in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016. This year, being promoted as an opener, Buttler has made small-yet-significant role in his side finishing at the top of the points table. Due to national duties taking precedence, Buttler will miss out playing in the playoffs. In a recent interview to MI, Buttler revealed one of his earliest ‘fanboy’ moments. Taunton has happy memories in store for Indian cricket fans. At the very venue in Somerset, Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid launched an onslaught against the defending champions Sri Lanka in the ICC World Cup 1999. The 318-run stand for the second wicket was then the highest ever in ODIs. Ganguly slammed India’s then highest individual score — 183 and Dravid stole the show with a classy 145. India posted 373 and notched-up a 157-run win. At that point of time, the win served as a sweet revenge for Indians who were left humiliated at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, in the World Cup 1996 semi-final against the same opposition. “He stole my pen!” @josbuttler takes us through his fanboy moment and find out who stole his pen! #CricketMeriJaan pic.twitter.com/LVcLz7tRbC — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) May 12, 2017 Buttler, then 8, was a Somerset resident and watched the carnage live. “I went to watch India against Sri Lanka at Taunton in a World Cup game, and Ganguly got 183 I think and Dravid got about 150 . Taunton was Somerset – my home. Watching these guys play against [Muttiah] Muralitharan and smashing him out of the ground into the river – that was probably my earliest fanboy moments of cricket, watching those guys,” Buttler recalled. ALSO READ: Jos Buttler is one of the most destructive batsmen in world, says Parthiv Patel There was a moment in the game that left Buttler in tears. Sri Lankan stalwart Aravinda de Silva was fielding near the boundary when Buttler had gone to him to take his autograph. De Silva obliged but a change in fielding position saw the diminutive Sri Lankan fielder rush to his new spot but he had not returned Buttler’s pen. Poor little Jos went back to his mother crying. “I used to try and get everyone’s autographs; You can run around the boundary and get autographs. I remember Aravinda de Silva, I was trying to get his autograph and then something must have happened. He took my pen, he had signed, and then he must have got moved or something, so he ran off. And he ran off with my pen. And I remember running back to my mum crying that Aravinda de Silva had stolen my pen,” Buttler added. The onslaught by the Indians must have surely inspired the eight-year old then. Buttler is one of the most exciting cricketers in the world and with changing times, he is the one now signing numerous autographs and obliging to slefies.

Australian players’ union threaten to boycott Bangladesh tour, The Ashes over Cricket Australia pay dispute CA chief executive James Sutherland demanded the Australian players accept the offer in a blunt email © Getty ImagesSydney: The players’ union called on Cricket Australia (CA) Sunday to mediate over intractable wage negotiations instead of threatening not to pay their stars. The governing body late last week threatened not to pay contracted players beyond June 30 unless the proposed remuneration overhaul was accepted. CA chief executive James Sutherland demanded the players accept the offer in a blunt email, as the impasse with the Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA) looked no closer to resolution. The latest flare-up casts doubt on what team Australia could field after June 30, with a two-Test series scheduled in August in Bangladesh ahead of a home Ashes showdown with England later in the year. Sutherland warns AUS players to accept new CA terms or to forget payments The ACA’s chief executive Alistair Nicholson criticised CA’s “incoherence and aggression” in the negotiations. “Clearly, we are disappointed that CA are threatening the players,” Nicholson said in a statement. “It’s also a window into the nature of CA’s behaviour in these negotiations so far. There is incoherence and aggression in what we have experienced at the negotiating table from CA.” Nicholson said this was shown by CA’s attempts last week to offer some top players multi-year deals only to threaten them the following day. “However, despite these threats, the players affirm their offer to participate in independent mediation,” he added. “Quite simply, one side entered these negotiations in good faith with an intent to provide a win/win result, and the other is trying to remove player unity and drive a wedge in Australian cricket. The point lost on CA is that the players will not respond to threats, whilst broadcasters and sponsors need certainty.” Clarke: Warner, Smith to continue playing in IPL despite CA’s stand Nicholson said it was time for CA to sit down in mediation for the good of the game, instead of making unnecessary threats and creating uncertainty. He added that his organisation had been in touch with cricketers on Friday to brief them on the latest situation. Emerging Test batsman Peter Handscomb, on county duty in England, said all players should be treated equally. He raised fears long-form players could be lost to Twenty20 if the current financial model was not retained. “It’s about being a partner in the game. It’s huge for the players. We all feel we have a genuine role in growing cricket,” Handscomb told The Sunday Age newspaper. “We’re putting ourselves out there in public, playing and promoting the game all the time. The revenue-share model helps us feel that we’re really part of the successes or failures.” Australian cricketers offered multi-year contracts to forgo IPL in future Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins on Saturday tweeted on social media in response to the email: “Players are staying strong #fairshare”. Former Test paceman Mitchell Johnson added: “Players past & present will stay strong #fairshare.” Read More || However, JANTASHAKTI.COM does not confirm this news, I have taken this news from this link !

IPL 2017: Virender Sehwag steps in to solve Twitter spat between Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya © Getty ImagesHardik Pandya and his older sibling Krunal Pandya are known to be very tight. The Pandyas have taken the franchise cricket world by storm with their heroics for Mumbai Indians (MI). There was a bit of banter between them as Hardik despite being an international cricketer gets 20 times less the salary that Krunal fetches for MI. However, recently, the brothers who do not miss an opportunity to exhibit their camaraderie on social media left the fans bemused. The brothers usually get into banters on social media but this seemed more serious. While Hardik seemed emotionally down about something, Krunal’s tweet expressed that he is the older brother for a reason and he insisted his younger brother to not make an issue of this. The tweet war made it to Virender Sehwag’s timeline and in his trademark-style, the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) mentor stepped in.

It was Hardik’s sensational spell of 4-0-22-2 that played a massive role in MI’s win last night against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Eden Gardens. The role marked MI’s 100th win. Even Krunal played his part in the game. Meanwhile, Sehwag’s KXIP are playing a knockout encounter against Rising Pune Supergaint at Pune on Sunday.

IPL 2017: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will try their best to return to Eden Gardens with the title, asserts Shahrukh Khan Shahrukh Khan (second from right) could only be seen in Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR’s) last appearance at the Eden that ended in heartbreak with Mumbai Indians (MI) beating them by nine runs © BCCIKolkata: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) owner and Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan hopes his team will win the IPL title this season and return to the Eden Gardens again, not to play a match but to celebrate with the silverware. Busy with his film shooting schedule, Shahrukh could only be seen in KKR’s last appearance at the Eden that ended in heartbreak with Mumbai Indians (MI) beating them by nine runs last night. “The way the crowd has supported us in every match, we will try our best to return here again — with the trophy,” Shah Rukh said while leaving Eden Gardens post-midnight after the rain-delayed match. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) vs Mumbai Indians (M), IPL 2017, Match 54 at Kolkata The two-time champions have suffered four losses in five games but still made the last-four by virtue of their healthy net run-rate +0.641, which is only second to table toppers Mumbai Indians (+0.784). “We lost closely in a few matches. It’s difficult now but that’s even better. We have to win three matches now [Eliminator, Play-off and Final],” he said, as KKR head to Bengaluru for their match on May 19. “It was the last match in Kolkata and a bit unfortunate that none of them will be here. But even if we don’t return again to play a match this season, God-willing we will come back with the Trophy.” Shah Rukh profusely praised the purple supporters for backing the team in highs and lows in the 10 editions with KKR winning the title twice in 2012 and 2014. “All stadiums are good across India. But their full capacity is our half capacity. We always had full house, even when we were not doing well in earlier seasons,” he said. FULL CRICKET UPDATES: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) vs Mumbai Indians (M), IPL 2017, Match 54 at Kolkata “We have had lows and highs, some pain and joy.

The attachment from Kolkata fans is helping us moving forward. We will forever remain purple. I really wanted to tell everyone that I was busy in work and could not come earlier,” he said. “My daughter first came here as seven years old when we first played here, and she could not come this time because of her exams. Everyone says that this atmosphere is never seen anywhere in the world. My kids have attachment to the city.” Shah Rukh hoped to follow the team in the play-offs in their quest for a record third title. “I don’t give the team any message. I just hug them and wish them fitness and all the best. I’m here to give them love. We have an experienced coaching staff and senior players to guide the team.

PHOTOS: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians, IPL 2017 Match 54 Ambati Rayudu and Saurabh Tiwary scored half centuries to help second-string Mumbai Indians post 173/5 in 20 overs against Kolkata Knight Riders in both sides’ final Indian Premier League (IPL) engagement at the Eden Gardens on Saturday. Rayudu, who had played only once before this game against Rising Pune Supergiant where he was stretchered out with a groin injury, starred for the visitors with a 37-ball 63. His innings was laced with six fours and three sixes. Full Cricket Scorecard: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) vs Mumbai Indians (MI), IPL 2017, Match 54 Tiwary (52 of 43 balls), playing his first game of the season, stitched together a 61-run stand with Rayudu for the third wicket before being involved in another 57-run association with skipper Rohit Sharma (27 of 21 balls). Hardik Pandya (not out 1) and Krunal Pandya (not out 0) were at the crease at the end of the innings. Trent Boult in his first spell returned splendid figures of 2-0-8-1, picking the prized wicket of Lendl Simmons who went back to the hut for a golden duck. The New Zealand pacer was pick of the bowlers returning figures of 2/30. Ankit Rajpoot bowled well too conceding just 14 runs in his three overs and also taking one wicket. Boult, playing his fifth match this season, made the most of the 22-yard Eden strip which looked to have some bite for the quicks after the rain. With Rohit at the crease and his enviable record at the venue in mind, Gambhir threw the ball to Sunil Narine in the fourth over. Narine has conceded just 77 runs in 71 balls to Rohit, also dismissing the India limited overs opener once in three innings at the Eden. After six overs, the visitors were 51/1. Just when Rohit looked good for another big innings at his favourite ground, Rajpoot put a spanner in the works with a cutter which the skipper tried to glance past short third man but was LBW. Rayudu made the most of a reprieve in the 12th over when a Narine delivery spun back sharply to take a thin edge off the bat only for wicketkeeper Robin Uthappa to drop the catch. The pair guided Mumbai to 100 runs in 13.1 overs before Tiwary was run out. With Kieron Pollard at the crease, it was not such a big blow for Mumbai who had to up the ante. Rayudu smacked Kuldeep Yadav for a four and six before the chinaman bowler floated the ball wide to force the batsman playing after 37 days to come out of his crease and reach for the ball, handing Uthappa an easy stumping. Pollard (13) could not do much damage toe-ending a Boult delivery for Yusuf Pathan to catch at cover. KKR made just one change, replacing Chris Woakes who is nursing an ankle niggle with Boult while already-qualified Mumbai Indians made six changes to their side resting some of the first team players. Krunal Pandya, R Vinay Kumar, Rayudu, Mitchell Johnson, Tim Southee, and Tiwary were all slotted in with Jasprit, Harbhajan Singh, Nitish Rana, Parthiv Patel, Mitchell McClenaghan, and Lasith Malinga making way.

West Indies dismiss Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq as Pakistan go to tea on Day 4, 3rd Test at 72-5 Younis Khan (Left) and Misbah-ul-Haq have scored over 15,000 Test runs between them for Pakistan © AFP (File Photo)Pakistan go to tea at 72 for 5 on Day Four of the third Test against West Indies at Roseau, Dominica. Pakistan as a result now have a 201-run lead. Misbah-ul-Haq was dismissed for 2 in his final Test innings as he top-edged one to Shane Dowrich off Devendra Bishoo. He hugged Younis Khan and then shook hands with all West Indies players. The Pakistan players gave him a guard of honour on his way back to the pavilion. Younis Khan too followed suit soon after a sharp catch from Kieran Powell for 35, with Bishoo striking again. Younis, like Misbah was given a guard of honour by the Pakistan players. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: PAK vs WI 2017, 3rd Test Shan Masood’s wicket brought Misbah and Younis together for one final time in international cricket. Pakistan have three a couple of wickets in this session, but have also added just 64 runs. If West Indies manage to get a couple of quick wickets in the final session, they might feel that they are still alive in the game. Live Updates: Pakistan vs West Indies 3rd Test, Day 4 Gabriel after going wicketless in the first innings has removed both the openers in this innings. Roston Chase is the only other wicket-taker, picking up the wicket of Babar Azam off the last ball before lunch. West Indies were earlier bowled out for 247, conceding a deficit of 129 runs. Roston Chase top-scored with 69. However, Mohammad Abbas picked up his maiden five-wicket haul to help Pakistan bundle West Indies out early in the first session of Day Four. West Indies managed to add just 29 runs to their overnight score of 218 for 5. Pakistan did not get off to the best of starts as they lost Azhar Ali and Babar Azam in quick succession for 3 and 0 respectively. Younis and Masood put on 49 for the third wicket before the latter was dismissed LBW. Pakistan in the final session will look to bat West Indies completely out of the game. Younis and Misbah will have to play a huge role in ensuring that happens. Pakistan still have Sarfraz Ahmed and the tail to follow. They will be confident of getting enough runs on the board. Pakistan in their first innings put up 376 thanks to 127 from Azhar Ali. Misbah, Azam and Sarfraz too scored vital fifties. Chase picked up four wickets, while Holder finished with three. It was West Indies, who won the toss on Day One and elected to bowl first. West Indies did not make any changes to their XI, while Pakistan brought in Hasan Ali and Masood in place of Shadab Khan and Ahmed Shehzad respectively. The three-match series is level at 1-1. Brief scores: Pakistan 376 (Azhar Ali 127, Misbah-ul-Haq 59; Roston Chase 4 for 103, Jason Holder 3 for 71) & 72 for 5 (Shan Masood 21, Younis Khan 35; Shannon Gabriel 2 for 19, Devendra Bishoo 2 for 5) lead West Indies 247 (Kieran Powell 31, Roston Chase 69; Mohammad Abbas 5 for 46, Yasir Shah 3 for 126) by 201 runs.
