Indian Premier League IPL 2019: Delhi Capitals aim to avoid collapse woes against rampant Sunrisers Hyderabad

first_img New Delhi: Summer has arrived in Delhi. The temperature is rising and the heat is well and truly on. For Delhi Capitals, they will be feeling the heat even more. A collapse of seven wickets for eight runs when they needed just 23 off 21 to win against Kings XI Punjab will rankle for a long time. How will Delhi Capitals bounce back? Their task heading into the next match at the Kotla will not be easy, considering the team that they are about to face is coming off a massive 118-run win over Virat Kohli’s side. Their opponents, Sunrisers Hyderabad have been boosted by the top order masterclass of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow. Both batsmen scored centuries and shared a record opening stand to decimate Royal Challengers Bangalore in such a way that they lost the match by one run solely to Jonny Bairstow’s bat alone. Sunrisers Hyderabad’s batting is an added bonus to their power-packed bowling line-up. With Mohammad Nabi complimenting Rashid Khan, the spin duo compliment the bowling of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul and Sandeep Sharma. For Delhi Capitals, they will need to shore up their lower middle order if they are to avoid such collapses in the near future. The bowling has been boosted by Kagiso Rabada but even he conceded 10 runs in the last two balls of the Kings XI Punjab innings which proved to be costly.  Team combinations With the match being played at the Feroz Shah Kotla, the pitch might once again assist the spinners. Will Delhi Capitals risk playing Amit Mishra in place of Avesh Khan? With the lower middle order struggling a bit, they might look to get Manjot Kalra or Jalaj Saxena to give them a bit of a buffer. Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, might not be wanting to make too many changes. Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s side looks settled and they will be aiming to sustain the momentum. Delhi Capitals (Playing XI): Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Colin Ingram, Hanuma Vihari/Manjot Kalra, Amit Mishra/Jalaj Saxena, Harshal Patel, Chris Morris, Sandeep Lamichhane, Kagiso Rabada Sunrisers Hyderbad (Playing XI): David Warner, Jonny Bairstow(w), Vijay Shankar, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Yusuf Pathan, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar(c), Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul Who will win? On form, Sunrisers Hyderabad look set to continue their winning run but Delhi Capitals can put up a strong performance in front of their home fans. Weather and pitch The weather is expected to get hotter with day temperatures touching close to 40 degrees and night temperatures hovering close to 23. Stadium and timings The match will be played at the Feroz Shah Kotla and it will start at 8:00 PM IST. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.

7th edition of COURTS 10K set for October 1

first_imgTHE COURTS Guyana Inc. 10K, one of the country’s most lucrative road races, will be held on October 1, with the company once again teaming up with the Athletics Association of Guyana (AAG) to host the seventh installation of the race.With over $2M invested in this year’s event, COURTS Marketing Manager Pernell Cummings told reporters at the company’s Main Street branch yesterday, that as an entity, “we’re very happy to be contributing to Athletics in Guyana and also to the overall fitness of the Guyanese people. I must thank the AAG for continuing to partner with us and for making this event a success.”Cleveland Forde and US-based Euleen Josiah-Tanner are defending male and female champions respectively, having dominated the event for a number of years.Forde clocked 32 minutes 40 seconds (32:40.0) to win last year’s 10K, while rivals Winston Missigher (33:15.1) and Cleveland Thomas (33:26.7) finished second and third respectively.Josiah-Tanner ran 40:12.20 to finish ahead of the now Monroe College student Claudrice McKoy (41:42.9), while Ashanti Scott was third in a time of 41:56.6.“I want to challenge athletes to break this (dethrone Tanner and Forde), and I myself, being a part of the COURTS Committee, challenge all my staff to come out and try to beat me,” Cummings jokingly said.Aubrey Hutson, president of the AAG, stated that the COURTS 10K is one of the pillars of road races in Guyana and his association is more than happy to be partnering with the company for another year.Hutson hinted at a number of changes to this year’s 10K and efficiency with regard to producing results, but stated “the route remains the same, we’re going to start in front of COURTS Main Street, into High Street Kingston, proceed east into Carifesta Avenue, then into the Rupert Craig Highway and we’re going to make a U-Turn at Conversation Tree and once we come onto the southern carriage way, we come west into Public Road Kitty, proceed south into Vlissengen Road, west into Lamaha Street and to Main Street for the finish.”“What we’re trying to do as well is to include some of the school athletes who are left out because of the age restriction of the IAAF and who can do a 10K; so we’re looking this year, to put athletes between ages 10 and 15 years old, those preparing for the Schools Championship to do a ‘Golden Mile’ around Main Street where we go up to Lamaha Street and return,” said Hutson.With regard to the cash prizes up for grabs, Hutson explained, “We’re still in negotiations to see how best we could improve on that but it would not be less than what it is, but the usual great prizes that are awarded by COURTS could be expected this year again.”last_img read more

Men’s basketball tops Robert Morris in season opener

first_imgRedshirt junior guard Derryck Thornton dribbles down court at Galen Center. Thornton tallied 8 points in the win over Robert Morris. (Emily Smith | Daily Trojan)Shaqquan Aaron planted and took flight, tomahawking the ball with his right hand and flushing it with authority. Before running back on defense, he flexed at his team’s bench and unleashed a mighty roar.It would be understandable if this was a scream of pent-up frustration. The story for much of USC’s season opener — in front of a crowd of 2,502, the smallest for a season opener since 2006 — was a dysfunctional offense. But Aaron’s dunk, one of two throwdowns for the redshirt senior guard during a solo 9-0 scoring run in the second half, gave the Trojans the spark they needed to pull away from Robert Morris in the Trojans’ 83-62 victory. “I just felt like it was time to give my team a boost,” said Aaron, who led the team with 20 points. “It wasn’t just me. We all bought in together and locked down on defense, which led to offense.”Aaron’s mini-explosion was part of a 21-5 run the Trojans used to take control in the second half. After being unable to receive good looks for much of the first half, USC found its way to the rim over and over again as the second frame progressed. Once they had some easy looks at the rim, the ball seemed to move much quicker and their outside shots began to fall; the Trojans had 11 assists in the second half and shot 60.7 percent from the field, including six makes on nine attempts from long range.But it was striking that they needed a run at all. USC was down 53-49 with just over 12 minutes left, due mostly to a stagnant offense. The team had almost as many turnovers (11) as field goals made (13) in the first half and struggled to make shots at the rim despite their size and talent advantage.USC’s perimeter players seemed rusty, possibly feeling the effects of many preseason injuries that kept the team from practicing much as a whole. The Trojans fumbled the ball around off the dribble and on passes, allowing Robert Morris to score 9 first-half points off turnovers.“First game, some of those guys were a little nervous and wanted to prove some things,” head coach Andy Enfield said of the team’s disjointed first half. “They just needed to settle down.”The Trojan defense wasn’t particularly inspiring, either. Although USC maintained a small lead for most of the half, Robert Morris temporarily took control with a 16-4 run in the middle of the frame. The Colonials targeted USC junior forward Nick Rakocevic during this stretch, using USC’s switch-happy defensive scheme to put him into actions that gave his quicker matchup space to shoot or attack off the dribble. Their ball movement also sliced up the press and zone the Trojans occasionally went to.Rakocevic made his presence known in the second half, however; he began to dominate the interior, grabbing defensive rebounds en route to 16 total boards on the night. His 18 points only trailed Aaron for highest on the team.“I’ll do that every game if I have to,” Rakocevic said of his work on the glass. “Offensive rebounding has kind of been my thing since freshman year, so I wanted to stick to that.”The whole team might have needed some time to find its groove. The careless ball-handling, poor shot selection and slow-footed defense of the first half was replaced by energetic ball movement and stifling athleticism in the second.“We made some adjustments defensively, how we guarded ball screens,” Enfield said. “We finally rebounded the ball, and then we went down and shared the basketball. It’s a fun style to play when you can run, spread the floor and make the extra pass.”Freshman guard Kevin Porter was also impressive in his debut, totaling 15 points, five rebounds and a number of highlight plays. His alley-oop slam gave the crowd a taste of his game-changing athleticism, and he showcased his shot-making ability with a tough stepback three in the second half, although he picked up a technical for taunting afterward.“He just needs to [be] more controlled, act like you’ve been there, done that before,” Enfield said.This USC team clearly has talent. Multiple players stepped up when needed, and senior forward Bennie Boatwright, heralded freshmen guard Elijah Weaver and forward J’Raan Brooks did not play due to injury. But last year’s team was talented, and they disappointed as a top-15 team in the preseason. The Trojans need to avoid stagnancy and apathy and play like they did in the second half more consistently, or they will fall below expectations for the second straight year.last_img read more
