Cricket News Find It Easier To Bowl In Death Overs: Deepak Chahar

first_imgNew Delhi: Deepak Chahar had an impressive outing in the Mohali Twenty20 International against South Africa on Wednesday. In his opening spell in the powerplay, he dismissed Reeza Hendricks for 6 and in the death overs, with South Africa aiming a big finish, he came back and got the wicket of Temba Bavuma for 49 to finish with 2/22 in four overs. Chahar has been impressive ever since his debut with his ability to swing the ball both in the air and off the pitch as well as using the variations. The death overs in any form of limited overs cricket is a challenge for bowlers. Most are unable to execute their skills and their confidence takes a beating after the batsmen go after them aggressively. For Chahar, the opposite is true. The youngster claimed that he relishes bowling in the death overs rather than in the powerplay as there are more fielders and he likes to take the batsmen by surprise.”Earlier I used to bowl more in the death overs and find it easier because in Powerplay you have only two fielders outside the circle and after that you have the protection of five fielders. You can use variation also in death overs. How I bowl depends on the batsmen. In the death overs, the batsmen is expecting yorkers or a slower ball but if you can also bowl a bouncer or knuckle ball, it can surprise him. You to have to keep guessing the batsman,” Chahar said.Also Read | Steve Smith Retains No.1 ICC Rankings, Says ‘Gave It All’ In Ashes 2019The Rajasthan pacer, who is used to open the bowling for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League and when asked about how he developed his skills, Chahar was unsure. In his opening spell of three overs, Chahar swung the ball and picked up the wicket of Reeza Hendricks before returning in the 18th over to remove a set Temba Bavuma with a well disguised slower ball. “I don’t know how I developed it (bowling at the top) but you have to do it when you are playing for India. It is challenging with only two fielders outside the circle. But I have started thinking sub-consciously that I will need to bowl three overs with two fielders outside the circle,” Chahar said.Also Read | MS Dhoni Cares About Indian Cricket And Is On Same Page With Us: Virat KohliIndia are gearing up for the 2020 World T20 which is in Australia and they have a total of 27 international Twenty20 games before they finalise their team composition. Chahar has impressed in the chances that he has got but he is aware that cementing his place in the Indian cricket team for the tournament is far from guaranteed. “There is one whole year left for that. I play each match as if it is my last for India. At this time Indian cricket is at the top. If you want to play you have to do well in almost every game. There is a lot of competition and may be that is why Indian cricket is at the top. There is no guarantee that you will get your place back even if you are returning from an injury,” Chahar said. The third and final game of the three-match Twenty20 International series will be played on September 21 at the M Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore. With the first match in Dharamshala being abandoned due to rain and the second match in Mohali resulting in an India win, Virat Kohli’s side will be determined to clinch the series and continue their dominance of South Africa in limited overs cricket.

Meghan Kelly: CNN’s Don Lemon “Pretends to be Objective”

first_imgFormer Fox News and NBC News anchor Megyn Kelly and CNN anchor are in a war of words over objectivity and racism. Kelly ripped Don Lemon in a tweet that CNN “pretends he is an objective news anchor.” In her tweet, Kelly linked to a story that included Lemon’s criticisms of the way President Trump conducts the White House coronavirus task force briefings.“CNN still pretends he is an objective news anchor (yeah, sure) while the [mainstream media] recoils in horror at the bias of Fox/[One America News], etc. Who do they think they’re kidding?” Kelly tweeted. Lemon, who has served as a moderator for several of the network’s town hall events during the 2019-2020 Democratic primary season and is listed as an anchor on his CNN.com bio, said on “CNN Tonight” on Monday that he feels like Howard Beale, the character from the satiric 1976 movie “Network,” after watching the president’s task force briefings.“I have to be honest with you. For the last couple of weeks, when I walk into this building and I get in front of this camera, I swear I feel like I’m in the movie ‘Network.’ I feel like Howard Beale. Americans are mad as hell. What are you going to — how much more can Americans take?”“Every single day berating people, lying,” Lemon said of Trump. “How much more — How many people have to die?”https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/tv/news/megyn-kelly-don-lemon-twitter-fox-news-trump-a9452976.html?jwsource=clKelly’s perspective on Lemon quickly trended Tuesday as a top topic on Twitter.Twitter users have also brought up remarks made by Kelly on her later Today talk show, in which she questioned why wearing blackface as part of a Halloween costume wasn’t acceptable.Kelly apologised for her comments but was dropped by NBC in October 2018 following the controversy.Lemon reacted to Kelly’s remarks on Chris Cuomo’s CNN show, telling his colleague at the time: “Megyn is 47 years old, she’s our age. There has never been a time in that 47 years that blackface has been acceptable.” Kelly was a longtime Fox News host before joining NBC News in 2017.last_img read more
