Indian Premier League Dinesh Karthik loses cool in Kings XI Punjab clash, Ravichandran Ashwin rues powerplay performance

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Kolkata Knight Riders, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals are still in the fray.Kolkata Knight Riders face Mumbai Indians in the final IPL 2019 league game.Kings XI Punjab now face Chennai Super Kings in the last league game. New Delhi: Kings XI Punjab had stumbled to 111/4 in the 14th over in their clash against Kolkata Knight Riders in Mohali. Dinesh Karthik’s side had applied the pressure and was looking good to restrict Kings XI Punjab to a below par score. However, Nicholas Pooran blasted 48 and Sam Curran hammered 55 off 24 balls to boost Kings XI Punjab to 183/6. In 6.3 overs, Kings XI Punjab had blasted 72 runs and this angered Karthik who gave an earful to the Kolkata Knight Riders side during the innings break. The outburst seemed to have helped as Kolkata Knight Riders stormed to a seven-wicket win thanks to Shubman Gill’s unbeaten 69.Speaking after the match, Karthik explained the rationale behind the outburst. “”It’s been a hard few days. I wasn’t too happy with the bowlers and what the fielders were doing, so I thought I should let the boys know what I felt at that time. It is rare, not many people have seen me angry. If I feel I need to be angry to get the best out of the boys, then maybe,” Karthik said. On the other hand, Ravichandran Ashwin admitted that the lack of a good start in the powerplay has hurt Kings XI Punjab yet again in the Indian Premier League. Ashwin highlighted that in the previous edition, the bowling powerplay was the team’s main weakness and in 2019, the batting powerplay has been an issue, despite Chris Gayle and KL Rahul scoring over 450 runs at a strike-rate of close to 150.“We have to address the areas that we are lagging. One of such area is the powerplay both with the ball and the bat. Last year, we had a great batting powerplay with Chris (Gayle) and KL (Rahul) but this year we couldn’t get off to great starts, obviously because the pressure was on them and they had to like, do a job. We have to address this going into the next year because we have lost most games on powerplay battles. It has been a massive problem,” Ashwin said.Kings XI Punjab only have a mathematical chance of qualifying for the playoffs while Kolkata Knight Riders can seal the fourth and final spot if they beat Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad lose to Royal Challengers Bangalore. highlightslast_img read more

AP Poll, you haunting oracle of truth

first_img@BadgerFootball is class all the way. There’s a reason Kalani tries to pattern his program after you guys. Awesome game! Good luck the rest of the season. Go take that B1G Ten Title!— мιѕтєя ¢ (@codythemac) September 16, 2018After I saw this one, I truly thought someone was screwing with me. I mean, when I think of the combination of college football fans (not exactly noted sweethearts) and Twitter (@realDonaldTrump), this is not the message I expected to be getting.All of that being said, the main reason I’d recommend BYU to be your gloating-team-of-choice, is that there is something truly satisfying about knowing your conquerors aren’t having sex.This week the Badgers are all the way down to No. 18 in the poll. I must now believe that they are in fact, exactly the eighteenth best team in the country, as it is written. Last week was a very different era.We have all changed so much during this time. I myself was foolish, immature and so, so naive. Why it was just mere days ago that I doubted the infinite wisdom of the AP Poll? Ah, how the turntables.After the AP Poll dropped the Badgers in the rankings after consecutive victories, I thought it was ridiculous — short-sighted even. It seems funny to say now. Little did I know that it was I who was being short-sighted. How ridiculous I was being to doubt the all-mighty AP Poll and its prescience.I continued my short-sightedness all the way up to the last moments of Saturday’s game. In fact, here is my Tweet from @BHeraldSports right before Gaglianone was to miss that fateful kick. It was picked up by BYU fans everywhere and absolutely lambasted for hours. If only I had heeded the signs of the AP Poll.There is, however, a bright spot. If I may be so bold as to hand out advice for being on the receiving end of gloating from a college football fanbase, and I feel I am well qualified in this regard, I would highly recommend that team be BYU. First off, they are, for the most part, incredibly gracious winners.Big BYU fan here, but I feel for that kid. That’s a rough go. Best of luck and go win the Big 10!— Uncle Maui (@DavidFiso) September 16, 2018Thank you, Uncle Maui, like the tropical Hawaiian island you are named for, you bring rays of sunshine and warmth even in these times of darkness.Hell of a game @Wisconsin. Good luck on the rest of the season.— Y are you the way you are? (@matticus1619) September 16, 2018Two things to take away from this one besides from the sincerity:I was sort of shocked by the use of the “H-E- Double Hockey Sticks” there by a BYU supporter, but nonetheless thankful for the sentiment.“Y are you the way you are?” is a name that hits a little to close to home at this point.last_img read more

He can improve, he can do better.“He scored against Chelsea, I want him to be nearer the goal, having chances to score more. He can. He’s very young.”Iwobi himself said Arsenal will take the point against unbeaten Liverpool.“It was a terrific contest against Liverpool,” he said.“Lucky enough I was able to pull out an assist. We ought to have won the match and sealed a win over Liverpool from the first half, but a point is not as bad as losing,” concludes Iwobi.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram *Iwobi earns more plaudits from Arsenal Boss for five-star performanceChelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, explained at the weekend why Nigerian international Victor Moses is out of favour at Stamford Bridge.Blues defeated Crystal Palace 3-1 yesterday without even list Victor Moses amongst the reserved players.last_img read more
