Real Madrid defender Carvajal

Madrid, Oct 10 : Real Madrid’s Spain international full back Dani Carvajal has said that he would one day like to play in England.

Speaking in the magazine ‘Libero’, Carvajal, who is currently out with a muscle injury, admitted that he would “love to play in the Premier League. It is an experience that I want to have and I don’t want to end my career without having,” he explained.

The full back also looked at the nominees to win the Balon D’Or, saying Madrid midfielder Luka Modric was his favourite to win the award, reports Xinhua news agency.

“Modric is the essence of football. It’s not all about scoring goals,” he said, comparing the Croatian to former Spain and Barca midfielder Andres Iniesta. “Iniesta had the chance to win but they didn’t give it to him,” commented Carvajal.

He admitted the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo had meant a change in a Real Madrid side which has failed to win in its last four games, but insisted the departure of the Portuguese star meant the side had to “play more as a team.”

What we saw from Tewatia in nets is what we saw in Cottrell’s over: Smith

Sharjah, Sep 28 : Rajasthan Royals skipper Steve Smith was all smiles after his team pulled off a record chase to beat Kings XI Punjab by four wickets on Sunday in Sharjah. Rahul Tewatia turned it around for himself and his team when he hit give sixes off the 18th over bowled by Sheldon Cottrell and Smith said that this exactly what the team sees the 27-year-old do in the nets all the time.

“What we have seen from Tewatia in the nets is what we saw in that Cottrell’s over,” said Smith in the post-match presentation ceremony. “I told someone as along as he gets one, floodgates will open. He showed heart. He told me during the timeout we still believe.”

Tewatia was hardly able to get ball on bat before he went after Cottrell and RR were banking on Sanju Samson yet again. Samson scored his second consecutive half century and was dismissed on 85 off 42 balls.

“Sanju is striking the ball cleanly all over the ground. Taking pressure off everyone. We will have to adapt to the bigger grounds, but these shots would clear everywhere,” said Smith.

Smith had chosen to bowl first despite winning the first match played at the same ground after batting first. His decision seamed to have backfired when Kings XI Punjab creamed 223/2 but Rajasthan’s fireworks allowed them to get to 226/6 with three balls to spare.

“That was something else, wasn’t it? Generally it gets wetter so I thought we were in with a chance at the halfway mark. A lot of sixes hit here. We gave ourselves the chance. Yeah, good to get over the line,” he said.

Rajasthan Royals IPL

Sharjah, Sep 27 : Rahul Tewatia’s five sixes off the 18th over bowled by Sheldon Cottrell coupled with Sanju Samson’s 85 off 42 balls helped Rajasthan Royals overhaul a target of 224 set by Kings XI Punjab on Sunday at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. RR won the match by four wickets and thus broke the record for the highest successful run chase in the IPL history.

Mayank Agarwal’s century and his epic 183-run opening stand with captain KL Rahul helped KXIP score 223/2. RR in reply ended the match on 226/6 with three balls to spare.

RR lost their first wicket early in the form of the dangerous Jos Buttler.

Samson and captain Steve Smith, however, ensured that their side reach 100 before the 10th over. Smith soon fell on 50 off 27 deliveries off the last ball of the ninth over after which Tewatia was promoted ahead of Robin Uthappa.

In stark contrast to the way he played towards the end of the innings, Tewatia struggled to score runs for much of the early part of his innings while Samson went big guns at the other end.

The latter eventually fell to Mohammed Shami, thus making it look like KXIP are closing in on an easy victory.

However, Tewatia, who at one point had scored just eight runs off 19 balls, smashed 30 runs off the 18th over to flip the tables on KXIP. He was eventually dismissed on 53 but Jofra Archer saw them over the line with 13 runs off just three balls.

Earlier, Mayank scored 106 from 50 balls, his innings punctuated by as many seven sixes and 10 fours. Rahul, on the other hand, scored 69 off 54, smashing seven fours and one six.

Brief scores: KXIP 223/2 in 20 overs (Mayank Agarwal 106, KL Rahul 69; Ankit Rajpoot 1/39) vs RR 226/6 in 19.3 overs (Sanju Samson 85, Rahul Tewatia 53; Mohammed Shami 3/53)

“He is for me, the greatest driver our generation has seen and I am confident that he will break the record of Michael Schumacher. He lives his life on his sleeve, he says what he says, and this is the one thing I really appreciate about him,” she added.

Mercedes’ Hamilton on Saturday took his 96th pole position ahead of the Russian Grand Prix and would be looking to equal Schumacher’s record of 91 race wins on Sunday.
