New Delhi, Sep 17 : India players Rishabh Pant, Shikhar Dhawan and Navdeep Saini have confirmed their availability for the Vijay Hazare Trophy. The move comes as a big boost for Delhi going into the tournament which will be played from September 24 to October 13.

It will be interesting to see how many games Pant does manage to play because the Test series against South Africa starts on October 2. While Dhawan is not in the scheme of things as far as the longer format is considered, Saini wasn’t picked for the series against Proteas. Pant though will be a part of the three-match series that will see India play their second series in the World Test Championship.

Hailing the move, DDCA President Rajat Sharma said: “It’s really heartening to see that Rishabh, Shikhar and Navdeep opted to play for Delhi at first available opportunity. Virat and Ishant also want to help Delhi cricket and I am sure they will also take the field whenever possible.

“It was a promise they made to all Delhi cricket fans at the Annual Awards recently. It shows that DDCA and the players are on the same page to take Delhi cricket to greater heights and win titles.”

DDCA took to Twitter to make the announcement of the trio’s availability and said that the senior selection committee will finalise the Delhi squad shortly.

Former stars like Sunil Gavaskar have always been vocal about how India players should be a part of domestic tournaments when not playing for the country. “If the Indian team has to do well, players have to be in prime form and for that they have to play cricket,” he had said.

Siddaramaiah Congress

Bengaluru, Jan 14: “Chief minister (CM) B S Yediyurappa has said that eating beef is the achievement of the Mysuru leader. He has forgotten to say that looting public money and going to jail is the only achievement of leader of Shivamogga,” said former CM and leader of opposition Siddaramaiah, taunting CM Yediyurappa on his statement of eating beef on the former.

Siddaramaiah tweeted, “I have not eaten beef till date though Yediyurappa had said that I eat beef. I said that I will eat if I feel like.

“It is funny that Yediyurappa and BJP party members, who are enjoying power after buying MLAs of our party, say that Congress party does not have leaders. It is only Congress which won the legislative assembly elections on its own power and ruled for a complete term of five years. Was Yediyurappa CM for five years?

“Let H Vishwanath remember who got him ticket for Lok Sabha and assembly elections of 2008. As he does not have gratitude, he has not got a minister position.”

Azharuddeen has never featured in the IPL before, but this century is a timely step in that direction, given the IPL 2021 auction is scheduled for February.

Mohammed Azharuddeen kerala

Kerala’s Mohammed Azharuddeen smashed the second-fastest century in the Syed Mushtaq Ali, India’s domestic T20 tournament, as he reached the landmark in 37 balls against a Mumbai attack led by Dhawal Kulkarni at the Wankhede Stadium. Azharuddeen missed Rishabh Pant’s record by five balls but it was still the joint-third-fastest T20 century by an Indian. It was also the first hundred by a Kerala batsman in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and sealed their highest-ever chase in the tournament as they beat Mumbai for the first time in any format.

Kerala were chasing 197 after 40s from Yashasvi Jaiswal and Aditya Tare and handy cameos from Suryakumar Yadav and Shivam Dube. Azharuddeen started the innings with Robin Uthappa, who was sedate only in comparison, and the two put on 129 runs in 9.3 overs before Uthappa a 23-ball 33. Soon after, Azharuddeen got to his century off left-arm spinner Atharva Ankolekar. Pant’s record of 32 balls, which came for Delhi against Himachal Pradesh in 2017-18, though was never really under threat.

After being on 89 in 31 balls, Azharuddeen slowed down, scoring 1, 1, 0 and 1 to get to 92 in 35 balls before a six off Mulani and a two took him to the landmark. He remained unbeaten on 137 off 54 balls, with nine fours and 11 sixes, as Kerala cantered to victory by eight wickets in 15.5 overs.

Azharuddeen, the 26-year-old, got off the mark off the third ball of the innings – his first – with a boundary off Kulkarni, and took a special liking to Tushar Deshpande, the other new-ball bowler. In the second over of the innings, bowled by Deshpande, Azharuddeen hit one six and two fours as 20 runs were scored. Deshpande went off the attack but returned in the sixth, and Azharuddeen hit him for two fours and two sixes as the over went for 23, taking his score to 65 at the end of the powerplay.

The most noteworthy aspect of Azharuddeen’s innings was his pull shots, but he did play more than a few pleasing drives too, and found his runs off Ankolekar and Shams Mulani primarily in the V, even as he slapped the experienced Kulkarni over his head for two sixes, both off the back foot.

The record for the quickest T20 century is in the name of Chris Gayle – he got to the mark off just 30 balls when he hit 175 not out off 66 balls for the Royal Challengers Bangalore against the Pune Warriors India in IPL 2013. Then comes Pant’s effort. Rohit Sharma’s 35-ball ton against Sri Lanka in a T20I ranks second among Indians, while Azharuddeen has pulled level with Yusuf Pathan, who hit a 37-ball century for the Rajasthan Royals against the Mumbai Indians in IPL 2010.

Azharuddeen has never featured in the IPL before, but this century is a timely step in that direction, given the IPL 2021 auction is scheduled for February.
