How the NCA got Mavi-Nagarkoti up and running in 2 years

When teenagers Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shivam Mavi were terrorising batsmen of their age during the 2018 ICC U-19 World Cup, it seemed the next batch of Indian speed guns was ready to take the world by storm.

But before the duo, with multi-crore IPL contracts, could rub shoulders with the big boys, their frail bodies couldn’t take much stress and it seemed like an anti-climax in the making due to injuries. However, the much-maligned National Cricket Academy (NCA) came into the picture at just the right time to rebuild their bodies and careers. [Read More]

IPL players, teams to pay dearly for bio-bubble breach

The players who breach the bio-bubble in the Indian Premier League (IPL) will have to pay a heavy price, quite literally. The first offence would prompt a six-day re-quarantine without pay, the second will result in a one-match suspension after quarantine, while the third instance will lead to the player’s removal from the tournament without his team getting a replacement. These rules have been detailed in a notification sent to all IPL teams by the Indian cricket board.

There are four acts of omission and commission that will be considered as breaching the bio-bubble: Unauthorised departure from the bio-secure bubble, not completing the daily health report, not wearing Restrata fob (GPS wristband), and missing a scheduled Covid-19 Test. The notification, accessed by The Indian Express, also subjects the family members of the players and staff involved in the administration of the IPL to these rules.

Mohammed Shami’s short ball success and his big Rohit Sharma test

Just around 16 per cent of Mohammed Shami’s deliveries in IPL-13 have been short balls, yet they have accounted for 42 per cent of his wickets in three games. Despite the one-bouncer-an-over restriction, Shami has got 3 of his 7 scalps with the balls that have climbed on to the batsmen. It’s this aspect of Shami’s bowling that has added a spicy sub-layer to the Mumbai Indians-Kings XI Punjab fixture.

On Thursday, facing the Kings XI pacer will be Rohit Sharma, one of the most destructive executioners of the pull. While Sharma’s range of pull shots is extensive, Shami too has a variety of short balls. In the past, Shami has been either too reluctant or too eager to bowl short but now he seems to have cracked the bouncer-code. Here’s looking at a few dismissals that show the effectiveness of Shami’s lethal bouncer.
