KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed that tickets for Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 6 will go on sale from tomorrow (Wednesday) at 10 am.
Following a shambolic loss, Joe Root opined that he wouldn’t call the Chennai pitch for the second Test as a ‘good’ pitch but insisted that it made for exciting cricket. He also admitted that it is a learning experience for the visitors to look at India and bat for long periods of time. After cruising past the hosts India in the first Test, where Joe Root led by example, England were looking to keep their momentum up for the second Test, at the same venue. However, right from the toss, everything went awry as they lost the toss and were made to bowl on a relatively flatter wicket. Eventually, that combined with their first innings batting display took the game away from the visitors, who ended up chasing the game from the second day. The visitors subsequently succumbed to a 317-run loss, during which the conditions in Chennai was a major part of the debate. Joe Root opined that he wouldn’t call it a good pitch but reckoned that the pitch did make for exciting cricket between the two teams. “It’s very alien to what a lot of English guys will have experienced before, as are green seamers that you might across in the UK. Do I think it was a good pitch? I wouldn’t say it was a good pitch, but it made for very exciting cricket,” said Root, reported ESPNCricinfo. “I do think that the toss was an important one to win but it wouldn’t have guaranteed us to win the game either. India showed that you can score runs on it and found a way of managing a very tricky surface so we’ve got to learn from that,” he added.Despite the tricky surface, India through their two innings – showed England how to bat, scoring 614 runs. Root stated that it was something that the visitors would have to learn from and added that they needed bat for long periods of time like the hosts. “How they (India) didn’t get away from their game plan, how they knew exactly the way they were going to score their runs. How they managed to bat at the other end for long periods of time.””And as a batting group, how does that look for us individually? How I am going to manage these big turning deliveries and how am I going to stay really calm and clear under pressure? We’ve got to take bits from it and add it to our own games, and come back better for it as well,” he added.However, next up for the visitors would be a day-night clash in Ahmedabad, where Root has his sights on, insisting that the break will help them regain momentum. “Day-night cricket offers something different again, so we are very much looking forward to that. We’ll have a little bit of a break now to refresh and have a look at a few things, but it’s exciting times.”Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

Chennai: India captain Virat Kohli said Tuesday his side showed more “grit” and “determination” to thrash England in the second Test, playing down complaints about the difficult pitch.
With local hero Ravichandran Ashwin claiming eight wickets in the match and scoring 106 in the second innings, India completed a 317-run victory inside four days in Chennai.
Left-arm spinner Axar Patel claimed a five-wicket haul on his Test debut as England were out for 164 while chasing an unlikely 482 on day four.
Some said the Chennai pitch, which crumbled from nearly the first day, was not fit for a Test.
But England made no public complaint and Kohli rejected the criticism and said his side played a “perfect game”.
“I think our application with the bat was outstanding,” said the India captain.
“The conditions were challenging for both sides but we showed more application and grit and determination to battle it out.
“We didn’t panic out there looking at the hard turn and bounce on that pitch.”
Kohli highlighted that India scored 600 runs over two innings despite the conditions, and winning the toss made no difference.
“So if you put up that kind of batting performance and you string in those important batting partnerships then we know that our bowlers are going to do the job.”
England captain Joe Root conceded that his side were “outplayed in all three departments this week” and had to learn quickly before the third Test in Ahmedabad.
But he added: “I would say it was a challenging wicket. I do think that it was an important toss to win.”
England, he said, now have to be “honest” and learn quickly to adapt to conditions in India.
England, struggling since the opening day, kept losing wickets after resuming on 53-3 on day four.
Root departed for 33 soon after lunch, falling to Patel.
Left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav joined in to finish off the innings, taking Moeen Ali after he smashed 43 off 18 balls.
The last wicket partnership of 38 between Ali and Stuart Broad, unbeaten on five, was England’s highest of the match.
England, who have been resting and rotating players, said Ali would be returning home after the Test.
Ali had coronavirus in Sri Lanka but recovered to take a total of eight wickets in the second Test against India.
Ashwin’s five wickets to help bowl out England for 134 in the first innings in response to India’s 329 set the tone for the host’s dominance.
England conceded a lead of 195 and then struggled on a pitch that offered turn from day one.
“This wicket was very different to the one we played on in the first game,” Ashwin conceded, but he added that the wickets had not fallen from the balls he expected.
“It was the mind of the batsmen that got us wickets.”
Opener Rohit Sharma hit an attacking 161 to set up India’s big innings after they won the toss and elected to bat first.
Sharma’s seventh Test century and his first against England raised the pitch of the returning Indian crowd — present in a stadium for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic.
Kohli made 62 in the second innings, putting on a key 96-run seventh-wicket partnership with Ashwin on day three.
Both sides need to win the series to take the second place in the World Test Championship final against New Zealand later this year.
The third Test — a day-night match — will begin in Ahmedabad on February 24.
Authorities have not said if fans will be allowed into the world’s biggest cricket stadium — with a 100,000-plus capacity — for the game.

India inched closer to a series-levelling win at Chepauk by picking up 4 wickets in the first session of Day 4 of the 2nd Test against England.Dan Lawrence and Joe Root walked out to bat with England needing over 400 runs to win the Test match. The former didn’t last long, as a brilliant piece of work from Rishabh Pant off the bowling of Ravichandran Ashwin caught him short of his ground.Root then had Ben Stokes for company. The England all-rounder was beaten on numerous occasions, and his only scoring shot – the sweep – didn’t fetch him a single boundary in the 51 balls he faced. Eventually, he was dismissed by Ashwin for just 8 runs, leaving the visitors staring down the barrel.Axar Patel joined in on the fun by dismissing Ollie Pope, before Kuldeep Yadav was denied his first wicket in over two years by Mohammed Siraj, who shelled a straightforward chance at backward point. Kuldeep found a breakthrough in his next over, however.The left-arm wrist-spinner had Ben Foakes caught on the leg-side on the stroke of lunch, and was visibly relieved after the scalp. England are placed at 116/7 at Lunch on Day 4, with Root waging a lone battle on 33 off 90 balls.India should be able to wrap things up in the second session Ashwin will be eyeing a 10-wicket haulGiven the amount of turn the pitch is producing and the unerring accuracy of the Indian bowlers, this Test is unlikely to be dragged into the final session on Day 4. Moeen Ali, Olly Stone and Stuart Broad are the only three English batsmen left.Ashwin, who has taken 3 wickets so far this innings, will look to scalp two more and record his 8th 10-wicket match haul in Test cricket. If he does so, he will become the first Indian cricketer and 5th overall (after Shakib Al Hasan, Imran Khan, Ian Botham and Alan Davidson) to have accomplished this feat.

Winning skipper Virat Kohli has asserted that it was a great game for Team India but also opined that it wasn’t unfair if the toss went either way. He also added that both the teams should be in the game no matter what the wicket and that was the case in this Test, so it was fine.One of the dominating themes of the second Test between India and England was the pitch. It was termed as sandpit and beach by many English fans and experts and has been a point of debate over the last four days. That India won the toss and batted first, it magnified the pitch and the home advantage factor even more. However, India proved that the pitch had runs on offer if the batters applied themselves well enough like was the case in their second innings where Ravichandran Ashwin made a terrific century. Speaking post the win, Indian skipper Virat Kohli termed it a perfect game for his side and also pointed out that the toss wouldn’t have mattered much given both the teams were in play from the first session which is what matters the most.”The conditions were challenging for both sides, but we showed more application with the bat. We didn’t panic out there looking at the turn and bounce, we showed grit, got into the game and scored 600 runs in the game. We know our bowlers would do the job for us if we put up these runs. The toss wouldn’t have mattered much in this game to be honest, because if you looked at our second innings, we got 300 as well,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation.”It wasn’t unfair if the toss went either way. Both teams should be in the game from the first session onwards, whether it is on spinning to seaming tracks, and that exactly was the case in this game,” he added.This Test also marked the return of crowd at the venues, which was the first time since COVID surfaced and international cricket resumed. Kohli added that the presence of fans makes a huge difference in the game. “It was a bit strange in the first game to be playing at home with empty stands. We were pretty flat on the first two days over there to be pretty honest, myself included, didn’t pick up energy on the field. But from the second innings onwards in the first game, we picked up and were on the money in terms of our body language. The crowds make a big difference, this game was an example of the grit and determination this side shows and the crowd is a big part of that.”Virat Kohli was seen asking the fans in the stadium to support the team with ‘Whistle-Podu’ and he said that having the crowd support helps a lot in hot conditions. “Chennai crowd are very intelligent, they understand their cricket really well. In a 15-20 minute period where the bowler needs the support of the crowd, it is my responsibility to involve everyone and bring in the crowd. If I am running in to bowl in this heat, I need people to motivate me. It is a perfect game for us.” Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

Kuldeep Yadav has had a tough few years. Once the gem of India’s spin bowling attack, the left-arm bowler has been on the sidelines for India for a while now. He was even dropped by his IPL franchise, with Kolkata Knight Riders preferring Varun Chakravarthy in IPL 2020.While Kuldeep Yadav finally got a chance to impress in the 2nd Test against England, he has struggled to assert himself. He bowled just 6 overs in the first innings, failing to pick up a wicket. The bowler didn’t get many opportunities to bowl, with Virat Kohli preferring to go with Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin.His bad luck continued in the 2nd innings. Kuldeep Yadav came on to bowl only in the 43rd over and saw Mohammed Siraj drop a sitter off his bowling. To add insult to injury, it was Joe Root who got the lifeline.But luck finally turned Kuldeep’s way, as the bowler picked up Ben Foakes’ wicket a few moments later. The wicket-keeper couldn’t keep his sweep shot down and found Axar Patel, who didn’t make any mistake.Fans on Twitter couldn’t keep calm after Kuldeep Yadav finally got a wicket. From hilarious memes to sighs of relief, the Twitterati rejoiced that the bowler finally had something to smile about.Relief and joy in equal measure after Kuldeep Yadav wicketFans celebrated online after Kuldeep Yadav got his first Test wicket in more than a year. Many also shared pictures of his relieved expression, while others pointed out how Team India collectively celebrated Kuldeep Yadav’s scalp.Phew. I’m more relieved for Kuldeep Yadav than Kuldeep Yadav himself.— Sorabh Pant (@hankypanty) February 16, 2021
