IPL 2021: Andre Russell Will Come To Bat After About 12 Overs, Says Brendon McCullum

Andre Russell’s batting position for his IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) has been debated for the past few seasons. After yet another KKR loss, coach Brendon McCullum shed more light on the team’s strategy regarding the Jamaican’s batting position.

On Thursday, against the Delhi Capitals (DC), Andre Russell walked out to bat at No.6 – a position popularly believed to be too low for someone who is the side’s trump card. Coming in during the 11th over, he smashed a 27-ball 45 not out to help KKR post 154. However, the total wasn’t enough to prevent a defeat.

Andre Russell Couldn’t Play With The Same Freedom But Powered KKR To A Competitive Score: Brendon McCullum

With wickets falling at the other end, the West Indian all-rounder couldn’t express himself as freely as he usually does. With a strike rate of 180 in his IPL career, Andre Russell tops the list of the best strike rates in the tournament’s history. So while Brendon McCullum believes that the 33-year-old is best utilized after 12 overs, he wants the other batters to provide him with a platform.

Speaking on why KKR management thinks Andre Russell’s position should be strategic, McCullum told the press: “I had a conversation with Andre Russell at the start of the season. We looked at a lot of stats and numbers.

“Ideally, with the right platform, beyond 12 overs is what we agreed on. There are times when he has to come in earlier, like today. That allowed him to settle down slightly better, but he couldn’t play with the same freedom because we had fallen into a sort of a hole. But then he powered us to a competitive score.”

Skipper Eoin Morgan was ineffective, and the gamble of promoting Sunil Narine didn’t pay off either. Sunil Narine has managed to score a mere 10 runs in 4 matches while skipper Eoin Morgan has managed only 92 runs in 7 games with a highest of 47 as KKR’s middle order has failed repeatedly this season.

Brendon McCullum: It’s Up To The Other Guys To Provide Andre Russell With A Platform

Brendon McCullum cited the example of KKR’s clash against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Mumbai last week, where KKR was 31 for five in the sixth over, chasing 221, and Andre Russell kept them in the game with a 22-ball 54 not out. KKR was eventually bowled out for 202 to lose by 18 runs.

KKR was reeling at 31/5 but a late assault from Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik, and Pat Cummins helped the 2-time champions get close to CSK’s total of 220 runs. Dinesh Karthik hit 40 from 24 while PatCummins hit 6 sixes and 4 boundaries for his 34-ball 66 not out before running out of partners.

McCullum said: “Against Chennai Super Kings at Mumbai, the game was so far beyond us by the time he walked in. He had to take the game on, and he has the ability. Ideally, it’s 12 overs onwards when he can do the damage with the least amount of risks.

“So it’s really up to the other guys to provide him with a better platform rather than ask too much from him. He was good tonight and in the last few games. So, looking at the few positives from this loss, his form is certainly one.”

With 163 runs at 27.16 and a strike rate of 155.23, Andre Russell has had a fluctuating season this year and has often struggled for support. KKR is in the fifth spot in the points table with only two wins from their seven matches. They will have to win at least five of their remaining seven games to stand a chance of qualification to the playoffs.

KKR has batsmen – Karun Nair, Gurkeerat Singh, Ben Cutting, Sheldon Jackson, and Tim Seifert – warming the bench as the side-eye changes in the games to follow.

Rahul Dravid Opens Up on Cricketing Debut for India in 1996 against England

After waiting in the wings for a long time, former Team India skipper Rahul Dravid, who made a significant contribution for the Indian National Cricket Team, sheds light on his debut game during India’s tour of England back in 1996. He has also thanked Sanjay Manjrekar, who somewhat responded with pun intended in his recent interview.

More often than not, Dravid has favoured his team by stitching crucial partnerships. He has bailed out his side whenever it was in dire straits. To add on, Dravid’s diligence has proven to be an inspiration for many from time to time.

Dravid, who is currently nursing India A and Under-19 teams, has made his Test debut under the leadership of Mohammad Azharuddin in June 1996 during the second Test against England at iconic Lord’s stadium.

Furthermore, in the drawn fixture, Dravid during his debut international game, slammed 95 off 267 balls while spending 363 minutes at the crease.

In between, his patient knock, Dravid found fence on six occasions and thus it paved a way for young Dravid to cement his spot in the national fold.

In that particular Test fixture, Sourav Ganguly has registered 131 off 301 as Jack Russell earned Man of the March award for his 124 and 38 in the second essay.

While responding to a question of Raunak Kapoor, Dravid reminisced about cricketing career and his Test debut.

The 46-year-old had emerged as a calming influence for Team India during his heydays. He shed light on his debut while admitting the fact of being lucky.

While dwelling into the game, Rahul has focused on his game to play a quintessential role for India.

“I think, you have got to acknowledge that and you’ve to accept that you’re lucky. I look at how I started my career. (As a player) I started in 1996 in Lord’s. And the only reason, I played that particular Test match was because Navjot Singh Sidhu decided to leave the tour. And, Sanjay Manjrekar got injured. Now, it’s easy I’ve played the amount of cricket to go back into 1996,” Dravid told during ESPNcricinfo’s Superstats show.

In response, cricketer-turned-commentator Manjrekar with his tongue-in-cheek comment said, “It was not actually an injury. I just wanted the world to see Rahul Dravid. And I have always been that kind of a guy.”

Manjrekar has represented India between 1987 and 1996 to feature in 74 ODIs and 37 Tests. He has recently picked India’s playing XI for South Africa in 2019 World Cup.

Dravid has represented India in 344 ODIs, 164 Tests and a solitary T20I. He bids adieu to cricket in March 2012.

Across formats, he has accumulated 24,208 runs in the international fold between 1996 and 2012.

Ricky Ponting Reckons Rishabh Pant to Slam More Test Tons than MS Dhoni

Former Australian National Cricket Team skipper Ricky Ponting is in awe of promising Indian Test wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant for his temperament and skills. The legendary batsman Ponting believes Pant has a lot in his tank to represent his national side. Ponting reiterated a lot has been said about MS Dhoni, but he sees a lot of promise in Delhi-based Pant.

According to the batting stalwart Ponting, Pant will slam more tons than Dhoni, who has smashed six hundred during his Test career comprised of 90 Tests. Recently, Pant has slammed his second Test ton at Sydney which earned him accolades.

“We talk about MS Dhoni all the time and his impact on Indian cricket. He played a lot of Tests for India but made only six Test hundreds. This kid will make a lot more Test hundreds than that,” Ponting was quoted as saying by ICC digital.

Interestingly, in nine Test matches, Pant has recorded two centuries in overseas condition.

In England, Pant became first-ever Indian wicketkeeper-batsman to record a hundred in the Test fold, last year.

On Tuesday, the 21-year-old Pant has bagged the award for ICC’s Emerging Cricketer of the year before making it to the ICC Test Team of the year under the tutelage of Virat Kohli alongside pace sensation Jasprit Bumrah.

Interestingly, owing to the comparison Ponting has heaped praise on Pant adding the latter is following the suit of legendary Adam Gilchrist. So much so, Ponting revealed he would be excited to pay for a game in which Pant would step up to play in the middle.

“We talk about him in the commentary box and he is sort of like another Adam Gilchrist. He’s a cricketer that I would happily pay to watch,” Ponting further added.

Pant is a real talent: Ponting

Ponting reiterated the exceptional talent in Pant will help him to go a long way. He is the cricketer to represent India across formats according to Ponting who led Australia in a spectacular way.

“He is a real talent and an incredibly good ball striker. He has got a really good game sense as well. He is someone who could play a lot of Test cricket for India across formats,” Ponting said.

However, while observing Pant’s game on close quarters, Ponting maintained the youngster should focus on his keeping role and the time will allow him to improve his game as a batsman.

“He has got to do a bit of work on his keeping and he will also become a better batsman,” Ponting remarked.

Ponting asserted Pant will learn the niceties of the game while getting better of challenges in the foreseeable cricket. However, he has set a pedestal—to emerge as one of the best in business in the traditional format.

In conclusion, Pant had recently equalled the record of most catches in the Test fold as a wicket-keeper. He is at par with England’s Jack Russell and the Proteas AB de Villiers. He achieved this feat during Australia series which also saw him surpassing Wriddhiman Saha’s ten dismissals behind the stumps.

Rishabh Pant Bags 2018 ICC Men’s Emerging Cricketer Award

The promising youngster for the Indian National Cricket Team on Tuesday (January 22) has clinched the award for being named as the International Cricket Council (ICC) Men’s Emerging Cricketer for 2018. The 21-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman had a remarkable year, particularly in the Test fold.

In September 2018, Pant became first Indian wicket-keeper batsman to smash a hundred in England. Moreover, while donning the whites, he followed it with a magnificent 159* against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). Eventually, India clinched the four-match series 2-1.

Surpasses Wriddhiman Saha:

Interestingly, Pant also equally the record of most catches taken in the Test fold during the third Test in Adelaide, last year. He surpassed the record of Wriddhiman Saha who bagged ten catches in the Test match.

Pant equally the record of South Africa’s AB de Villiers. He recorded the milestone against Pakistan in 2013 alongside England’s Jack Russell, who snared 11 catches in 1995 against South Africa in Johannesburg.

His eleventh catch came on the bowling of Mohammed Shami who got better of Mitchell Starc. Pant made his name in the record books by claiming six catches in the first innings before settling with five in the second essay.

Between January 1 and December 31, 2018, Pant has backed himself to put up a stellar performance. At the average of 49.71, he amassed 696 runs with the help of two hundreds and as many half-centuries in nine Tests. While donning the gloves, Pant has proved his mettle by claiming 40 catches and added two stumpings to his name.

However, Pant has to prove himself in the limited-overs fold. In 2018, he scored 41 in three ODIs and 114 runs in eight Twenty20 Internationals. He also claimed three catches in the 50-over after making his debut against the Windies at Guwahati in October 2018.

Pant’s emergence signifies the bench strength of Team India. It would also be interesting to see how the national selectors would see him before announcing the 2019 World Cup squad. Pant who himself revealed that he had been closely following Dhoni.

As of now, Pant is bracing himself for a challenge for India A against the England Lions. He has been named for the final two one-dayers of the five-match series.

Top 5 Great Innings by a Captain batting in the 3rd or 4th Innings

Today we are looking at Top 5 Great Innings by a Captain batting in the 3rd or 4th Innings. Batting at the 3rd or 4th innings of a test match requires lots of guts and survival instinct. Especially in situations where the team is asked to follow on or chase a stiff target great patience needs to be summoned by the batsmen. There have been many instances in test history where the captains of the respective teams led from the front. Brendon McCullum’s innings today at Wellington rewinds us back to the innings of similar stature by captains in the past.
  1. Michael Atherton (185 vs. South Africa) – It was 1995/1996 season and England were playing a red hot South African side captained by a shrewd Hansie Cronje. England was set a daunting total of 479 runs in the fourth innings and they were staring towards a huge defeat as the scoreboard read 145/4. Atherton the skipper was still present fighting his way out and he was joined by an equally stubborn Jack Russell. Similar to the way the skipper McCullum and the keeper Watling fought it out today, another skipper and wicket keeper kept the South Africans at bay for a long period. Mind you, Atherton had to face a rampaging Allan Donald and this innings is even still remembered for his gustiness to withstand raw pace by taking blows all over his body and guiding his team to safety.
  1. Brian Lara (153 vs. Australia) – Those were the days when the West Indies team used to depend on a single champion player named Brian Charles Lara. The opposition was Australia who were rolling out teams on a regular basis. Australia had a lead of 161 when they began their second innings and an inspired bowling performance from Walsh skittled them out for 146. West Indies were left to chasse 308 runs against an attack which read Glenn McGrath, Jason Gillespie, Shane Warne and Macgill. Enter Brian Lara who had single handedly defied the Australians all through the series. He was at his attacking best slashing the bowlers all over the park and watching wickets tumble at the other end. Only 6 runs were needed when Ambrose fell and Walsh joined Lara. He played out an entire over and every ball was met with a triumphant roar from the stands. And then Lara hit the winning runs next over. This is one of the classics of test match history and one of the all-time greatest cricket series.
  1. Graeme Smith (183 vs. England) – Smith has a great record batting in the third and fourth innings of a test match. He showed it once again against a good England attack scoring 183 odd runs and along with Hashim Amla took his team to a commanding position, a lead of 466 runs. Even though England managed to save this match this remains one of the greatest innings played by a captain against a quality bowling attack.
  1. Salim Malik (237 vs. Australia) – This has to be one of the greatest innings played by an Asian batsmen. The scene was enacted at Rawalpindi. Australia had amassed 521 runs and Pakistan shot out for 260 runs in their first innings. They were promptly asked to follow on. Salim Malik showed why he is a highly rated player and played an innings of such sublime quality. His knock was studded with 34 boundaries against a bowling attack that included McGrath, Fleming, and Shane Warne. With support from Aamer Malik and Rashid Latif Australians were kept at bay and Pakistan had managed to draw that match and gave them the confidence to save the next match to win the series and kept their record intact at home conditions.
  1. Martin Crowe (299 vs. Sri Lanka) – Another escape act by a New Zealand captain at wellington. Martin Crowe did to Sri Lanka what McCullum did to India today. In a similar situation with a lead of 323 by Sri Lanka after a sublime Aravinda De Silva innings, Martin Crowe and Andrew jones survived the Sri Lankan bowling attack. Even though it was not a strong bowling attack when the team is facing a deficit of more than 300 runs and batting in the 4th innings of a test match it requires great skill to bat it out. Crowe managed to bat all along and missed a well-earned triple hundred by 1 run after being bowled by a relatively unknown bowler called Arjuna Ranatunga

Rishabh Pant Breaks MS Dhoni’s 13-Year Old Record With SCG Ton

Rishabh Pant made his Test debut just a few months ago, midway during the series in England.  He had arrived in the team with a lot of hype and it is safe to say that the youngster has pretty much lived up to the expectations. In his very first Test series, he left made a mighty impression.

On his debut, he created history becoming just the fourth Indian wicket-keeper to take five catches on debut, achieving the feat in the Trent Bridge Test.  In the same game, he had become the first Indian to get off the mark in Tests with a six. Two Tests later, he became the first Indian wicketkeeper to score a Test ton in England when he scored a thrilling century in the second innings of the Oval Test. In doing so, he also became the first Indian wicketkeeper to score a century in the fourth innings.

Pant has now impressed in the ongoing Test series in Australia too. He started the series by creating history in Adelaide.  He created history by becoming the first Indian wicketkeeper to take six catches in a Test innings in Australia. Pant achieved the feat during the first Test.  By the time the Test ended, he equalled the world record of Jack Russell and AB de Villiers for the most number of catches in Test by a wicketkeeper. With 11 catches in the Adelaide Test, Pant went past Wriddhiman Saha’s Indian record of 10 catches in a match.

And on Friday, he created history once again by becoming the first Indian wicketkeeper to score a Test century in Australia. The southpaw scored a stunning ton in the ongoing fourth Test in Australia. He also became the first Indian wicketkeeper to score two overseas centuries. And he went on to break MS Dhoni’s long-standing record of highest score by an Indian wicketkeeper in overseas Tests.

Dhoni had held the record for well over a decade after scoring 148 against Pakistan in Faisalabad in 2006 before Pant broke it in Sydney. Pant crossed Dhoni’s score in style when he hit Josh Hazlewood for a four to reach 149.




Rishabh Pant Reacts After Being Dropped From ODI Squad

Rishabh Pant is having a decent Test series in Australia. The young wicketkeeper-batsman had a stunning start to the series when he missed out on a world record by just one catch. In the series-opener in Adelaide, he equalled the world record of Jack Russell and AB de Villiers for the most number of catches in Test by a wicketkeeper.

With 11 catches in the Adelaide Test, Pant went past Wriddhiman Saha’s Indian record of 10 catches in a match. The 21-year-old had an opportunity to break the world record during the second session of the final day of the game but he dropped a catch. Pant has impressed with the bat too but has thrown away starts in all the four innings thus far. Despite looking impressive early on, Pant could not just convert his starts, thus scoring 25, 28, 36 and 30 in the four innings.

With two more games remaining in the four-match series, Pant will have opportunity to make a big score.

But just ahead of the third Test in Melbourne, starting on Wednesday, Pant received a big setback. The youngster was dropped from India’s ODI squad for the upcoming series against Australia and New Zealand. Pant had received his maiden ODI call-up during India’s last ODI assignment which was the five-match series against Windies at home. Pant had managed to get just two games where he scored only 41 runs.

Following the snub, Pant took to Twitter to post a philosophical message, writing:

“If you are not willing to learn … no one can teach you. But if you’re determined to learn … no one can Stop you ?????”

Pant, meanwhile, has managed to retain his spot in the T20I squad for the series in New Zealand.

India’s ODI squad:

Virat (Capt), Rohit Sharma (vc), KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (WK), Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed, Mohammed Shami.

Watch: Rishabh Pant’s Hilarious Dig At Usman Khawaja To Unsettle The Australia No. 3

Rishabh Pant is having quite an impressive outing in his first-ever Test in Australia. With the bat, he played a handy knock of 25 that was studded with 2 fours and a maximum. Although the situation demanded Pant to play cautiously, he played his natural game and unfortunately failed to make the start count.

He, however, soon managed to get over it and impressed even more with the wicketkeeping gloves.  The youngster entered the record books after becoming the first Indian wicket-keeper to take six catches in a Test innings in Australia. Pant achieved the feat during the first innings of the ongoing first Test in Adelaide.

The other wicket-keepers who have taken six catches in an innings against Australia are Denis Lindsay (South Africa), Jack Russell (England), Alec Stewart (England), Chris Read (England) and Matt Prior (England). West Indies’ Ridley Jacobs leads the list for taking seven catches at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 2000.

He also equalled his predecessor MS Dhoni’s record of most catches by an Indian ‘keeper in a Test innings. Dhoni had taken six catches during the Wellington Test against New Zealand in 2009.

Well, the Adelaide Test showed another facet of Pant’s personality. The ongoing game made it crystal clear that Pant is as talent with his mouth as he is with his bat and wicketkeeping gloves.

On day two of the game, he was seen constantly throwing verbal volleys at the Australian batsmen. A notable incident took place when Usman Khawaja was batting. The southpaw was playing patiently, keeping the Indian bowlers at bay. And in an attempt to unsettle the Australia star, Pant shouted:

“Everybody is not Pujara here.”

The statement was clearly a dig at Khawaja’s attempt to play patiently like Cheteshwar Pujara does. The India number three had showed his patience in this game too by scoring a fighting century in the first innings. Well, Pant’s sledging did make Khawaja unsettle as he soon departed after scoring 28.

Here is a clip showing the sledging by Rishabh Pant:



Rishabh Pant Creates History In Australia, Equals MS Dhoni’s Record

Rishabh Pant did not have the best of starts with the bat in Australia.  The youngster walked out to bat when India were in deep trouble. The visitors were reeling at 86 for 5. With Cheteshwar Pujara holding firm from one end, all Pant was needed to do was to play patiently.

However, the youngster, known for his aggressive approach, went for the shots and did not last long. He scored 25 with the help of two fours and a six before departing. But the left-handed batsman soon made up for the poor show with the bat by a good show with the wicketkeeping gloves.

Meanwhile, India bowled out Australia for 235 to take a slender 15-run lead. Starting the day on 191 for 7, Australia could add only 13 runs before Jasprit Bumrah removed Mitchell Starc. A 31-run stand between Travis Head and Nathan Lyon threatened to wipe off the deficit. However, Mohammed Shami dismissed Lyon and Josh Hazlewood on successive deliveries to give India a handy lead.
