Indian Premier League Hardik Pandya has become better cricketer after spending time away: Krunal Pandya

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya blasted 50 runs in the last three overs.Mumbai Indians defeated Delhi Capitals for the first time after three games.Mumbai Indians are second in the points table behind Chennai Super Kings. New Delhi: Hardik Pandya’s career was in the crossroads at the start of the year. He had appeared on the show Koffee With Karan hosted by popular Bollywood director Karan Johar and his comments on the show were labeled ‘sexist’, ‘misogynistic’ and ‘racist’. Hardik was suspended for the Australia tour and an Ombudsman was appointed to look into Hardik’s comments. His suspension was lifted by the BCCI and a clean chit is expected from the Ombudsman. Hardik made a mark in the series in New Zealand but in the 2019 Indian Premier League, he has been in magnificent form. Hardik has chipped in with some crucial knocks at the end, including a blazing 25 against Chennai Super Kings and a crucial 32 off 15 balls against Delhi Capitals.The efforts by Hardik with both bat and ball in the game against Chennai Super Kings won him the Man of the Match award and he received yet another award for his game-changing 32 off 15 balls against Delhi Capitals. Speaking in the post-match press conference, Hardik’s brother Krunal Pandya heaped praise on his brother and said the time he spent away from the game helped him immensely. “When he was away from the game due to injury and the other reasons (controversy), he worked a lot on his fitness. We started playing the game together and one thing that I can say that cricket has always been his priority. Honestly, there are very few players who have a work ethic like him. His goal is always to improve and if you do that, you become consistent,” Krunal Pandya said.Krunal said that Hardik is adding a new dimension to his game every year and that he is also learning from him. “Earlier he used to smash spinners, now he is also doing the same to pacers. He worked on that area during the off time he got and he has gotten the desired results. What like I most about is never giving up attitude. Every year, he is adding something or the other to his game. In fact, I have also learned a lot from him,” Krunal said.The left-handed Krunal and Hardik blasted 50 runs in the final three overs against Delhi Capitals and the all-rounder acknowledged the assault was the key. “I guess while batting it was a very tricky wicket. When I went inside and when Hardik came in we were not aiming for 170, we thought 145 was a good total on this wicket. The way Hardik batted, it changed the momentum for us and we ended up with those extra runs. While bowling we knew how the wicket would behave and our bowlers knew to how to bowl on it,” Hardik said. highlightslast_img read more

Women of Troy record third place finish

first_imgThe USC women’s swim team entered the 2011 NCAA women’s swimming and diving national championships with the same goal it had all season: placing in the top five.Cream of the crop · Junior Katinka Hosszu earned 2011 NCAA Swimmer of the Meet honors Sunday, leading the Women of Troy with wins in the 200- and 400-yard intermediate medley and the 200-yard fly. – Daily Trojan file photo The Women of Troy fared much better, however, and placed third Sunday in Austin, Texas. California took first place with 424 points, Georgia second with 394.5 and USC finished third with 351.This was USC’s best performance at the NCAA competition since 2003. Not only did No. 6 USC swimmers finish off their season with the third-place victory, but junior Katinka Hosszu walked away with Swimmer of the Meet honors.“You always get bumps in the road,” said USC coach Dave Salo. “But the women didn’t get too rattled and it was a tremendous effort. They got caught up in the excitement and didn’t worry about times; they just got out and raced really hard.”The Women of Troy began competition at the NCAAs on Thursday, finishing in second place after the first day of events.Georgia proved to be a strong competitor from the start, leading the field after day one. By the second day, however, the Golden Bears took the lead and the Women of Troy fell to third place, where they would remain for the rest of the competition.“We were still under everybody’s radar [the first day], they didn’t really know how we were going to do,” Salo said. “We had a really good morning and from that point on, we were just meeting our goals.”Although they started strong, the Women of Troy did not put all their focus on that initial ranking.“We knew that there were two long days of competition left, so we didn’t want to get caught up in the point game,” said senior co-captain Presley Bard. “We wanted to focus on our performances, and knew that those would take care of the points.”Named Swimmer of the Meet, Hosszu also became the second USC swimmer on the team to win three NCAA titles in the same year. With titles in the 200- and 400-yard individual medley as well as the 200-yard fly, she helped lead the team to the podium at NCAAs.Another notable USC swimmer at the meet was senior co-captain Lyndsay DePaul. She finished off her college swimming career as a three-time finalist at the competition, and also earned individual All-American honors for the third time.The Women of Troy now have their eyes set on next year’s goals, despite the looming departure of key seniors.“No team is ever the same, every year is a different team,” Bard said. “I think that the team [next year] will be good. I think Lyndsay and I did a good job preparing them. Because we have people like Kasey [Carlson] and Katinka [Hosszu] on the team, it will be fine without Lyndsay and I.”Under the radar all season, the Women of Troy made a strong statement to bring their 2010-11 season to a close.USC hopes its strong finish is a sign of things to come.“A lot of programs have not really considered our team to be significant,” Salo said. “This year we finally turned that corner. We are back where we belong, a top five program.”last_img read more

Junior goalkeeper Caroline Stanley earned 5 saves before being substituted with about 15 minutes left to play.“I think in our game against LMU it was the first time that you could see we were hungry to score goals,” junior forward Jessica Musmanno said. “That’s the type of mentality we want to continue throughout the rest of our season, just doing the little things right where we were unlucky before. Hopefully the streak keeps going.”Despite the big win over LMU, the Women of Troy dropped out of the NCAA rankings, but are still receiving votes. They entered the weekend ranked No. 23, and have been ranked as high as No. 17 this season.USC is outscoring opponents 18-8 on the year, with Eddy leading the team with five goals.

The team seems to be responding.”FAU (2-4-1) is coming off a blowout in their last game, a 10-0 rout over Arkansas-Pine Bluff (1-7-0) on Sunday.

Courtney Zwetsch has a save percentage of .750 in 9 games, with a GAA of 1.25.“We can’t really worry about them,” Musmanno said. “We just have to be confident and shut down our defending. I think right now our defenders have been doing really well, so I have faith in our backline that they’re not going to get scored on 10 times [like Arkansas-Pine Bluff].”Cal State Fullerton’s (3-2-2) last contest resulted in a 0-0 tie against Utah State (4-1-2). They outshot the Aggies 17-12 during the contest, but committed a staggering 27 fouls to Utah State’s 10.USC last played Cal State Fullerton in the 2012 season opener, winning the game 3-2 on the road despite having one defender sent off with a red card.
