England injury crisis of no concern to Virat Kohli

India captain Virat Kohli has dismissed talk that England's injury crisis has bolstered his side's hopes of victory in the third Test as they "don't wait for the opposition to be weak". Kohli's men head into Wednesday's clash at Headingley 1-0 up in a five-match series after a superb 151 run-win in the second Test at Lord's. England, already without injured quicks Stuart Broad, Jofra Archer, Olly Stone and star all-rounder Ben Stokes, were dealt a fresh blow this week when express fast bowler Mark Wood was ruled out of the third Test with a shoulder injury suffered while fielding at Lord's. But Kohli, looking to lead India to just their fourth series win in England, bristled at suggestions his side -- who were injury hit themselves when winning in Australia earlier this year -- told a pre-match press conference on Tuesday: "Even when the key players are playing we think we can beat anyone in the world -- we don't wait for the opposition to

Renuka Singh, Yastika Bhatia and Meghna Sindh called up by India Women for Australia tour

Two uncapped women players in Meghna Singh and Yastika Bhatia have been called up for the tour of Australia in September-October. Meghna Singh plays for Railways as a medium-pacer and Bhatia is a left-handed batter from Baroda. The 25-year old Renuka Singh is also among the players earning their maiden national call. Renuka is a pace-bowling all-rounder from Himachal Pradesh. The experienced Rajeshwari Gayakwad is also back to the squad after recovering from an injury that she picked during the recent tour of England. India's tour to Australia will start with three ODIs, after which the two teams will play a one-off day-night Test match at Perth. The series will end with three T20Is. The selectors of India have picked the same squad for the Test and ODI series that toured the UK recently. Mithali Raj will lead the 18-member contingent with Harmanpreet Kaur leading the T20I squad, which has 17 members. Only Test and ODIs squad:  Mithali Raj (capt), Harmanpreet Kaur (vice-capt), Smri

Dawid Malan eager for Test return after 'emotional' exit

England batsman Dawid Malan returns to Test duty this week determined to make up for lost time having been left feeling "very emotional" when dropped from the side three years ago. The 33-year-old has been recalled for the third Test against India at his Headingley home ground starting Wednesday in a bid to add some steel to England's fallible top order. It was against India that the now 33-year-old Malan last played Test cricket in 2018 only to then be dropped just five matches after finishing the 2017/18 Ashes as England's top-scorer in Australia thanks to a well-made 140 in Perth. Since then he has become a notable white-ball cricketer, with the left-hander now having been number one for nearly a year in the International Cricket Council's Twenty20 batting rankings. His only first-class innings this season saw Malan make 199 for Yorkshire and now he wants to disprove the view of former England selection chief Ed Smith, the man who dropped him from the Test side

Top 4 opening pairs for Pakistan in Tests

From the great Majid Khan to Saeed Anwar, the Pakistan team has been lucky to have several successful opening pairs who have won lots of matches for the country. Here is a look at the four best opening pairs in Test cricket for Pakistan   Mohsin Khan & Mudassar Nazar, (1981-1986) Both right-handers came together at the start of the 1980s to form a formidable opening partnership for Pakistan. In 54 innings together in partnership, Moshin Khan and Muddassar Nazar amassed 2057 runs at an average of 39.55. This included 16 half-century stands and three-time the pair breached the 100 marks in partnership. Nazar Nazar was a patient opener who showed great determination not to give his wicket away under any circumstances while Mohsin was more elegant and relied on stroke play thus complementing each other. Aamer Sohail & Saeed Anwar, (1994-2000) The dynamic duo of Saeed Anwar and Aamir Sohail were a regular feature in both formats for Pakistan. Both left-handers were an absolute night

Cricket failed to become an institution in Pakistan because here

Re-plug: Cricket failed to become an institution in Pakistan because here 'PM appoints cricket chief', says Imran Khan Imran Khan, who is now the Prime Minister of Pakistan, had insisted back in 2016 that cricket in Pakistan had failed to become an institution because the Prime Minister appoints the PCB chief. Khan, before coming into power, was vocal about cricket getting influenced by politics which led to the downfall of sport in the country.  "The reason cricket has, unlike elsewhere, failed to become an institution in Pak is because here PM appoints PCB Chief," he said in a tweet posted on March 27, 2016. In 2018, Ehsan Mani was PM Imran's nomination to succeed Najam Sethi. In fact, Sethi had already resigned from his post when the news of Imran Khan taking oath as Prime Minister of the country was confirmed. Now with Mani's tenure as PCB chairman almost completed, there have been speculations about Ramiz Raja getting picked as the new chief. Reportedly,
