India vs South Africa : Bottles hurl in Cuttack.

All, Cricket, Sports
Angry and disappointed spectators hurled missiles, mainly water bottles, into the cricket ground after India were bundled out for 92 against South Africa in the second T20 International at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack. South Africa were 64/3 in 11 overs when play had to be stopped. Put into bat, India just lasted 17.2 overs, to record their second-lowest total in T20Is. Their lowest was 74 against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in February 2008. As India collapsed, fans vented their fury by throwing water bottles from the two-levels gallery three and four as it continued unabated in the innings break. Bottles are incidentally banned in most of the venues in India where water is supplied in pouches but an Odisha Cricket Association official said in Barabati Stadium th...

South African batsman Jean-Paul Duminy, who blunted the Indian attack with his match-winning knock, said the 16th over in which the visitors gathered 22 runs turned the opening T20 cricket match in their favour. It was Duminy who went berserk and smashed left-arm spinner Axar Patel for three consecutive sixes in that over. His 34-ball 68 not out, laced with a four and 7 sixes, earned him Man of the Match award. Duminy carried forward the good work done by openers Hashim Amla (36) and AB de Villiers (51) to the visitors a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. "The start was crucial for us. I think the key was that we did not lose wickets in the six overs. And the way AB and Hash (Amla) played was exceptional. The turning point was the 16th over. We tried to find a big over and tha...

After becoming the first batsman in history to record two ODI double-centuries, and breaking the record for the highest score in the format, Rohit Sharma said he felt it was important "to think" about an innings while compiling it. And that's what he did at Eden Gardens, he said. "It's important to look at the team score, because that's how you will build your innings, you need to know where your team stands," Rohit said, after his 264 off 173 balls powered India to 404 for 5 against Sri Lanka. "It's important to know what the score is and how many overs have been bowled, and how many overs of each bowler are left. I think it's very important to think when you're batting, and that's what I did." Rohit was playing his first match for India in two and a half months, having been sidelined...
