Ben Stokes picks up form as England begins preparations for match against Ireland

Stokes’ knee condition raised doubts about his ability to perform as a versatile player, and it became inflamed during a Test series draw in New Zealand in February.

Stokes only managed to play nine ounces in two Tests against the Kiwis, but he intends to take part in England’s attack in the home match against Australia.

Josh Hazelwood praises RCB teammates Virat Kohli and Mohammed Siraj ahead of WTC final

Speaking to the International Cricket Council, Hazelwood said: I think what makes him stand out is how hard he works. First of all, his physicality and then his skill, particularly his batting and fielding.

He always comes out (to practice) first and leaves last … and the intensity with which he consistently trains is at such a high level that he pulls everyone else in. T…

‘For some strange reason they sent him water’: Sunil Gavaskar unhappy with Gujarat Titans’ tactics in IPL final

He played the first 3-4 innings quite brilliantly. Then, for some strange reason, they sent him water. In the middle of the over they sent him some kind of drink.

Maybe from a distance they could just say well played, Gavaskar told …

The fact that he was around means he also saw how the field at the Oval behaves.

He may not b…

In the absence of the injured Rishabh Pant, Kishan, who has yet to play Test cricket, may provide the X-factor, but Sarandeep believes Bharat will go into the eleven as the main wicketkeeper.

KS Bharat is a sure thing. He is a real wicketkeeper for Test matches and we saw that against Australia at home he held up superbly. He has been around for a while and he should get th…

Don’t forget what this season has taught you What did MC Dhoni say to his CSK teammates in the locker room after winning the IPL?

Mahi bhai gave me clarity of thought. He told me what my role was. It was simple – tujhe jaake team ka run rate badhana hai (You must increase your run rate). Even if I go out early, no problem, but I’ll try to accomplish the task at hand. The assignment was clear, Dube told The Indian Express a day after CSK won the IPL. Dube’s hitting percentage this season is 158.33.


‘I think he has something to prove because…’: Sunil Gavaskar on Ajinkya Rahane in WTC Finals
