England’s tour of India 2016-17 – 4th Test at Wankhede – Day 3

@imVkohli help India take lead on 3rd day of 4th TestClick To Tweetvirat-kohliMumbai: Skipper Virat Kohli’s brilliant unbeaten century powered India to a commanding position on the second day of the ongoing fourth Test match at Wankhede Stadium, here today.

Earlier today, India lost the wicket of overnight batsman Cheteshwar Pujara (47) on the second ball of the day. However, Kohli’s 15th Test hundred and an equally confident 136 by Murali Vijay (his 8th Test hundred) helped India to reach 247/2 at lunch.

Post lunch India lost wickets of Murali Vijay, Karun Nair (13), Parthiv Patel (15) and Ravichandran Ashwin (0) within 45 runs to slump to 307/6. However, Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja (25) took India close to visitor’s first innings score with a 57 run stand for the seventh wicket.

The unbroken eighth-wicket stand of 87 between Kohli and Jayant Yadav (30*) helped hosts extend their first-innings lead to 51 runs by the end of day’s play.

For England, spinners Moeen Ali (2/139), Adil Rashid (2/152) and Joe Root (2/18) accounted for six of the seven Indian wickets to fall.

Brief Score at the end of Day – 3:

England: 400 all out (Keaton Jennings 112, Jos Buttler 76, Moeen Ali 50, Ashwin 6/112, Jadeja 4/109)

India: 451/7 (Virat Kohli 147*, Murali Vijay 136, Joe Root 2/18)

India lead England by 51 runs with 3 wickets remaining.

Junior World Cup 2016- Austria stun South Korea 5 -2

Congrats @austriahockey on beating South Korea 5 - 2Click To Tweetcedric-d-souzaLucknow: In a Pool A match, Austria registered their first win of the tournament after defeating South Korea 5-2 in the first match on the third day of Men’s Hockey Junior World Cup 2016 at the Major Dhyan Chand Stadium here on Thursday. Austria, coached by former India coach Cedric D’Souza took a two goal lead by the 21st minute. Joohan Park’s goal just at the stroke of half time raised hopes of Korean fightback.

In the second half, Oliver Binder scored an early goal for Austria. Joohan Park’s goal in the 56th minute again livened up the match. But, another couple of goals in the 60th and 62nd minute by Franz Lindengrun and Pit Rudofsky respectively ensured full three points for the European team.

Playing in their first Junior Hockey World Cup, Austria now has four points from two matches. Yesterday the European newcomers had held the South American giants Argentina to a 1-1 draw.

Austria 5 (Marcel Hilbert 8’, Pit Rudofsky 21’and 62’, Oliver Binder 39’, Franz Lindengrun 60’) beat South Korea 2 (Joohan Park 35’, 56’)

England’s tour of India 2016-17 – 4th Test Match at Wankhede – Day 1

Ashwin leads Indian fightback on 1st day of 4th TestClick To Tweetkeaton-jennings

Three quick wickets by Off-Spinner R Ashwin helped India stage a fightback after Keaton Jennings’ fluent century on debut had put England on top on the opening day of the 4th Test match being played at the Wankhede Stadium here today. Drafted into the side as a replacement for the injured Haseeb Hameed, 24 year Jennings became the 103rd player in the history of test cricket to score a century on debut. He is also the 19th Englishman to achieve this feat.

English openers Alastair Cook and debutant Keaton Jennings (112) put on 99 runs for the opening wicket to justify Cook’s decision of electing to bat first after winning the toss. Just when England looked on course to a huge first innings score, Jadeja had Cook (46) stumped and Ashwin had Joe Root (21) caught at slips on either side of lunch to bring India back in the contest.

After this Jennings continued to impress, as he and Moeen Ali (50) took England’s score to 192 for two wickets at Tea. These two continued to frustrate team India and threatened to take the match away, before Ashwin struck twice in three balls to dismiss Moeen Ali and Jennings, as England slumped to 230 for four from 230 for two. Soon, wicket-keeper batsman Jonny Bairstow was dismissed by Ashwin as the visitors lost their fifth wicket at 249.
After this Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler joined hands to stitch together a undefeated 39 run partnership for the sixth wickets. For India, Ashwin picked up four wickets, while Jadeja chipped in with one wicket.

Brief Score at the end of Day – 1:

England: 288/5 (Keaton Jennings 112, Moeen Ali 50, Ashwin 4/75)
