Real Madrid players celebrates UEFA Champions League title

Madrid, May 28: Real Madrid’s players celebrated their 13th UEFA Champions League title with thousands of their fans at Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu stadium, after the Spanish football club crushed Liverpool 3-1 in the Champions League final in Kiev.

Together with Real Madrid’s UEFA Champions League victory, the Bernabeu stadium was also chosen to celebrate Real Madrid Basketball team’s 10th EuroLeague champion title, after last week the team won against Fenerbahce Dogus Istanbul in Belgrade, reports Efe.

Never before had any sports club managed to win the maximum continental trophies in a single season. But this week, Real Madrid, in seven days, won both the EuroLeague and the UEFA Champions League.

The ground of the Santiago Bernabeu stadium was the place where the two teams came together to offer their titles to the Madridistas, who had previously gathered up around the Almudena Cathedral, Puerta del Sol and Plaza de Cibeles to celebrate the triumphs.

However, it was Cristiano Ronaldo who stole the spotlight of the day, after he had hinted, following the final in Kiev, that he would leave the club in summer.

Before arriving at the stadium, the Portuguese player was very active in the celebrations with the rest of his teammates, and at the insistence of the fans who had gathered at the Puerta del Sol, he spoke a few words.

“Good afternoon. Thank you for coming here this afternoon. It’s an unforgettable moment. It’s a spectacular job. We made history, and that’s what we were looking for. Thanks to the Madridistas. It’s a happy moment. We are very happy and thank you, Hala Madrid!” he told the fans.

Jones was part of the Australian team that won the 1987 World Cup, playing a starring role in the campaign. Jones was Australia’s third highest run-getter in the tournament, scoring 314 runs in 8 matches. He was currently in India as part of the team of experts working on the Indian Premier League with host broadcaster Star Sports.

“It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing away of Mr. Dean Mervyn Jones AM. He died of a sudden cardiac arrest.

It was all about being ruthless: MI skipper Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma

Abu Dhabi, Sep 24 : Rohit Sharma, on Wednesday, returned to his usual, elegant self with a masterful innings to lead Mumbai Indians to a 49-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Rohit scored 80 off 54 as MI scored 195/5. In reply, KKR managed to score 146/9.

Interestingly, this marked MI’s first ever victory in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), having lost all of their matches in 2014 when a part of the group stage was played in the UAE.

“It was only two players from the 2014 squad. It was all about how we executed our plans today, we never let it go. We were in good position throughout the game but it was all about being ruthless, getting as many (runs) as possible. We knew the wicket was good and dew was coming down,” said Rohit in the post-match presentation ceremony in which he was declared Player of the Match.

As the KKR bowlers fumbled with their line and length and gave Rohit short deliveries, the MI captain replied with his trade mark pull shots to deposit the ball over the boundary.

“I back myself to play (the pull shots), love playing it and practiced it quite a bit. Pretty glad it came out well, they were all good (laughs), can’t pick one. I haven’t played a lot of cricket in the last six months time and was looking to spend some time in the middle; it didn’t come out well in the first innings but glad to have done it tonight,” he said.

Rohit Sharma

Mumbai Indians (MI) cruised to a 49-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 on Wednesday (September 23).

Earlier in the day, KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik won the toss and invited Rohit Sharma’s MI to bat first at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

The Mumbai side got off to a poor start after they lost Quinton de Kock (1) in the second over of the game.

However, things changed massively after that with Rohit Sharma and Suriyakumar Yadav forming a formidable partnership.

The duo knitted together a 90-run stand before Yadav was dismissed for 47. Saurabh Tiwary (21) and Saurabh Tiwary (18) constructed short innings with the Mumbai skipper who completed his half-century.

It was thanks to Rohit’s captain’s knock of 80 rubs which propelled MI to 195/6. Pat Cummins had a horror show with the ball for KKR on his debut as he ended up giving away 49 runs from his three overs.
