  Harmanpreet's final-over six secures title for India
Posted by: nairrk - Today 07:41 AM - No Replies

India Women 245 for 9 (Deepti 71, Meshram 59, Kapp 2-36, Khaka 2-55) beat South Africa Women 244 (Du Preez 40, Gayakwad 3-51) by one wicket

With India needing eight off the last two balls, stand-in captain Harmanpreet Kaur struck Marcia Letsoalo over midwicket for a six and then took two off the last ball to secure the title for her team at the P Sara Oval, in Colombo.

India's chase of 245 boiled down to nine needed off the last over. Harmanpreet dragged the first ball, a slower one, to deep midwicket and aimed for a double, but Poonam Yadav was run out at the non-striker's end for 7 off 15 balls. Letsoalo then sent down three successive dots to tip the game in South Africa's favour. Harmanpreet, though, snatched victory to ensure India finished the tournament unbeaten.

Rajeshwari Gayakwad, the No.11, who hung on with Harmanpreet, was earlier impressive with the ball. Her left-arm spin complemented Shikha Pandey's pace; their combined returns of 5 for 92 helped India dismiss South Africa for 244.

Having elected to bat, all of South Africa's top eight moved into double-figures, with the top score being Mignon du Preez's 40 off 72 balls. Opener Lizelle Lee and captain Dane van Niekerk made 37 each before Suné Luus' 29-ball 35 took the total close to 250.

Deepti Sharma, who bowled an economical spell of 1 for 46 in the first innings, laid the platform for India's chase with a second-wicket partnership of 124 in 25 overs with opener Mona Meshram (59). Sharma was dropped twice - on 46 and 70 - by van Niekerk, before she pressed onto score 71 off 89 balls, including eight fours.

South Africa's underwhelming fielding further strengthened India's chances, as Luus handed a life to Veda Krishnamurthy in the 36th over. Pandey chipped in with a crucial 12, after Marizanne Kapp ended the fourth-wicket stand of 38 between Kaur and Krishnamurthy, who hit a 27-ball 31. India's lower-middle order then caved in, losing four wickets for 14 runs. A run-a-ball 41 from Kaur, however, ensured India sealed their highest successful chase in ODIs.

"To be honest, I was waiting for that ball because that is my strong area," Harmanpreet said after the win. "I know like we needed nine runs in the final over and I was going to hit the ball. If we run then we will go for two runs. My partner also did a great job and ran two runs. It was a totally team effort from our side."

  Mustafizur Rahman returns for Sri Lanka Test tour
Posted by: nairrk - Yesterday 02:12 PM - No Replies

[Image: prv_c57ca_1487663404.jpg]

Mustafizur Rahman, the Bangladesh fast bowler, will make his Test comeback after a bout of injuries in the upcoming two-Test tour of Sri Lanka. Pacer Rubel Hossain has also been included in the 16-man squad named on Tuesday (February 21) while opener Imrul Kayes missed out due to a thigh injury.

Mustafizur replaces Shafiul Islam in the squad that traveled to Hyderabad for the historic one-off Test against India. Opener Imrul was also a part of the contingent but missed out after injuring his thigh in the warm-up match against India A. A similar injury had forced him out of the Christchurch Test in January. Mosaddek Hossain, who was named as Imrul's replacement, retains his spot in the squad for the upcoming Sri Lanka series.

Bangladesh had opted to rest Mustafizur for the historic game in India earlier this month as the team management felt the bowler was not at the peak of his fitness yet for a Test comeback. The left-arm pacer underwent a shoulder surgery in August last year after sustaining an injury while playing for Sussex in the County Championship.

Mustafizur was then picked for the limited-overs tour of Bangladesh's New Zealand tour in December-January where he played four games before injuring his hamstring that ruled him out of the succeeding two-Test series. He proved his fitness by turning up in Bangladesh's first-class competition, where the left-armer played two rounds, that convinced the selectors to recall him for an international stint.

"I am really impressed with the way he bowled in the second innings. I think he got back his rhythm," Minhajul Abedin, Bangladesh's chief selector had said.

Rubel too has been handed a recall after impressing in the Bangladesh Cricket League, where he took ten wickets in two games for South Zone.

The first of the two Tests will begin on March 7 in Galle, while the second game will be played in Colombo from March 15. The second game would also be Bangladesh's 100th Test match.

Bangladesh Test squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (Captain), Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mominul Haque, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Sabbir Rahman, Mustafizur Rahman, Taijul Islam, Mehedi Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Mosaddek Hossain, Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Subashis Roy, Rubel Hossain.
