  • New concussion rules were introduced in Test format as well last year. Australian batsman Steve Smith was replaced by Marnus Labuschagne on Day 5 of the second Ashes 2019 Test at the Lord's under the rules. Recently young Indian batsman Rishabh Pant also suffered from concussion after being hit on his helmet by pat Cummins.

    Team India’s middle-order muddle is only well known, and perhaps reached a crescendo in 2019 when it became a key factor in their ODI World Cup semi-final exit. Nearly 12 different batsmen had been trialled at number four during the two-year experimentation phase before that tournament — all of it had come to nought with an inexperienced Rishabh Pant handed a job he couldn’t execute.

    This is not the first time that the cricketers have been spotted with their rumoured girlfriends.

    Sent home from Australia after the chat show controversy at the beginning of the year, Rahul ends 2019 on a strong note. With Rahul, India also have a wicket-keeping option in the T20 format. He has kept wickets at the domestic level and does so with reasonable success at the IPL. “He is definitely an option,” said India coach Ravi Shastri.

    India's top three Rohit Sharma (63), K L Rahul (77) and Kohli (85) -- fired in unison in a 316-run chase but it got slippery in the end when the Indian captain left the scene with 30 required off 23 balls. It was then that Thakur, in the company of a composed Ravindra Jadeja (39 not out), smashed 17 runs off six balls to seal the deal for India.

    Rishabh Pant’s mental strength will be key as he deals with a rough patch — and realises sports is as much about failure as success. For motivation, he has to only look at Kohli & Rohit. Meanwhile, the cricket fraternity should back him up. This is what international sport is all about. It isn’t about success and more success.

    Hope gave solid support to Hetmyer and deservingly completed his eighth ODI hundred. Another talented southpaw like Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (29 not out off 23), hit back-to-back boundaries to register a memorable win for West Indies.

    Batting first, India scored 170 for 7 with Shivam Dube hitting 54 off 30 balls and Rishabh Pant contributing an unbeaten 33 off 22. In reply, Lendl Simmons scored an unbeaten 67 off 45 balls and Nicholas Pooran scored 38 off 18 balls to finish the chase.

    Pant shared pictures while playing with MS Dhoni's dogs.

    The T20 World Cup is more than 12 months away but India captain Virat Kohli has already detailed his plans and expectations from the youngsters in the side.

    Skipper Rohit Sharma made it a memorable 100th T20 International blending grace with brutality in his 85 off 43 balls as India cantered to a series-levelling eight-wicket victory over Bangladesh in Rajkot on Thursday.

    It is an interesting time for Kohli to miss out. One, it allows him an iota of rest in what is going to be a hectic schedule stretching into autumn of 2020. Two, and more importantly, it will allow him to watch this side from the outside.
