CAPE TOWN, Jan 14 (Reuters) – Keegan Petersen scored a stunning 82 as South Africa cruised to a seven-wicket win in the Third Test and a 2-1 series victory over world number one India on unforgiving Newlands ground after chasing their tough 212 goal on Friday.

It is only the fourth time in 133 years that a side have scored over 200 runs in Cape Town to win, and follows South Africa’s epic seven-wicket victory in Johannesburg in the second Test as she needed 240 runs in the fourth inning.

Petersen, who was the series top scorer with 276 points, was the anchor for the home side, but there were also important unbeaten contributions from Rassie van der Dussen (41) and Temba Bavuma (32) as they put 57 for the fourth wicket.

The result means India are still looking for a first Test series victory in South Africa after having high hopes when they won the opening game.

“It was a hard-fought series, but I think South Africa did surprisingly well in defending themselves in the second test and then capitalizing on the same momentum in the third,” India captain Virat Kohli said during the interview. the post-match presentation.

“I think in the two Tests they won they were a lot more clinical with the ball in critical moments, and to be honest we also had a bit of a lack of focus, which cost us. They deserved winners in the end.”

South Africa, who were underdogs for the series despite having home advantage with their inexperienced team, had started the day on 101 for two and had a lot of scares on the difficult ground against the high quality Indian couturiers, who might have had more reward with better luck.

India was extremely frustrated with the technology used for dismissal references and could have gotten themselves into trouble with their deliberate on-field comments into stump microphones.

Elgar believes the victory is an important step forward for his side, which have lost a host of experienced players to retirement in recent years.

“I’m quite delighted. I couldn’t be more proud of the group of players,” he said. “We’ve been thrown to the sword a few times in this series and the guys have responded brilliantly.”

“The way our bowling unit has come and gone in the last two games has been brilliant. Taking 60 wickets in a Test series is a tough challenge.”

“We have a young and talented group. The experience is not there, but we are acquiring it and improving every day.”

The teams will now play three One Day Opens from Paarl on Wednesday.

A fairytale finish! Retired New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor ends remarkable career by winning Bangladesh’s final wicket – only their THIRD wicket and in his 112th test – to seal huge victory

  • Bangladesh were 279 for nine when part-time spinner Ross Taylor took the ball
  • After two dot balls, Ebadot Hossain skied one and was caught in the midwicket
  • This meant prolific drummer Taylor improbably ended his long testing career.
  • New Zealand dominated Bangladesh in the game to secure the end of the series 1-1











Ross Taylor won Bangladesh’s final wicket – just the third of his testing career – in his final act of test cricket to seal New Zealand’s playoff victory by one end and 117 points in the second and last game Tuesday.

New Zealand’s decision to call a call denied Taylor, who made 28 in his first reported 521-6 total, the chance to strike again.

Bangladesh scored 126 in the opening innings and were 278-9 in the final session of Matchday 3 when New Zealand skipper Tom Latham threw the ball at Taylor.

The part-time spinner sent two point balls before inducing a skyer from Ebadot Hossain and Latham took a fall in the middle of the wicket to secure a winning farewell to the former New Zealand captain.

The margin of victory could have been greater had it not been for Liton Das’ 102 counterattack for Bangladesh, which shocked the Test world champions in the opener at Mount Maunganui.

“It’s a great way to end,” said Taylor, New Zealand’s most prolific test hitter with 7,683 runs, including 19 hundred, in 112 games with an average of 44.66.

“I wanted to end with a win and the guys definitely gave it to me.

“It was an emotional game for me and my family… it was good to get the victory,” added the 37-year-old, who will play his last limited international matches against Australia and the Netherlands during the season. ‘been at home.

On the heels of their surprise eight-wicket loss in the opening test, New Zealand imposed a follow-up before their setters secured the victory.

“The bowlers did a hell of a good job on a tiring wicket,” said Latham.

“Ross Taylor got up and took the last wicket. He’s been there for 17 years … has been such an important member of the group. ‘

Latham, whose 252 earned him the man of the match title, managed a superb catch on the second slip to clear Mohammad Naim as Bangladesh began to crumble.

Neil Wagner put the Tourists’ batsmen through a bouncer barrage and was awarded with numbers 3-77, while Kyle Jamieson claimed 4-82.

Bangladesh captain Mominul Haque (37) and Nurul Hasan (36) couldn’t convert their starts to big shots, but Liton scored freely to bring his second Test 100 to 106 balls.

“I’m really happy with the first test, but the second test was disappointing,” said Mominul.

Devon Conway was named man of the series for smashing two hundred in three innings.

At least one draw in Christchurch will give Bangladesh a historic series victory over New Zealand, and they are aiming for that ahead of the second test.

Against all odds, Bangladesh claimed an eight wicket victory on day five at Mount Maunganui thanks to a team performance. Bangladesh had not won a single international match against New Zealand in New Zealand in the previous 32 meetings.

“We had a few difficult months in all formats [before NZ tour]Bangladesh head coach Russell Domingo said. “It’s a great result [in the first Test] for boys, and they deserve it. They worked really hard and stuck to the plan, and a lot of credit goes to them because it was a fantastic performance.

“They are a young team so they don’t come here with the scars that some of the older players left playing in New Zealand so many times. There is a very good spirit in the team at the moment, good energy. “

Spirited performances from the young Shoriful Islam (3 wickets in the first round), Mahmudul Hasan Joy (78 in the first round), Najmul Hossain Shanto (64 in the first round) and a magic spell of 6/46 in the second round by Ebadot Hossain gave the Tigers a victory to long cherish. But the job is only half done.

“Like I said, there are a lot of young players in the squad who are trying to make a career. They are very motivated and determined, and they are looking to do what no other Bangladesh team has done before. , win a series in New Zealand. They are halfway there, the job is not done. But they are very determined to achieve something special that can inspire another generation of Bangladesh cricket. “

Unlike Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui, Hagley Oval in Christchurch will pose more challenges in Bangladesh on a green surface. In this case, visitors will certainly be looking to play first as they did when the series opened.

“I think it will be an important draw. I think the statistics show that the last 10 tests here have been won by the teams that have played first. Obviously the new ball from day one will be important. We will be looking to play first if we won the toss.
They are a quality team and they will suffer. But they will certainly be nervous before the game. They lost a test and there’s not really time to recover, ”Domingo said.

Last update: 01/06/22 5:03 PM

Dean Elgar hit an unbeaten 96 to lead South Africa to a seven-wicket win over India in the second test

Dean Elgar hit a heroic undefeated 96 to lead South Africa to a seven-wicket victory over India in Johannesburg to tie the Test series at 1-1.

Elgar, the South Africa captain, defied a hostile Indian attack and bullet holes that hit him on difficult Wanderers ground to deliver a winning performance as he led a successful 240-point chase, rightly hitting a limit to secure victory.

South Africa reached 243-3 towards the end of a rain-restricted fourth day to tie the series after India won the first test in Pretoria by 113 runs, the decisive match ahead in Cape Town, live on Sky Sports Cricket from Tuesday.

The home side were 118-2 overnight but had to wait as Thursday’s first two sessions were swept away by rain.

lgar and Rassie van der Dussen finally resumed their chase under a cloudy sky, the outcome still uncertain, as the terrain was to favor the formidable Indian attack.

But the two hitters continued their partnership and added an extra 57 points in the first few hours of play as they faced tourist bowling, before Van der Dussen edged out Mohammed Shami for the first slip and was out for 40.

South Africa still needed 65 to win when the wicket collapsed and could have quickly spiraled into trouble if Shardul Thakur had held up a strike when new hitter Temba Bavuma hit the second ball he faced directly to the launcher.

But Elgar was the hero, showing a fierce fighting spirit and setting the example to give his young team an important and morale-boosting victory. He faced 188 balls, hit 10 limits and deserved a century.

It was the first time South Africa had beaten India at the Wanderers and kept alive their hopes of denying the world’s top-ranked team a first-ever series victory in South Africa.

HAVING served as an entertainment tray in the previous three games, there was an eager excitement to see what African neighbors South Africa and Namibia would offer as the final course of the thrilling African floor hockey series.

South African coach Justin Rosenberg asked his team to start faster and focus in games and he got exactly that as the hosts have produced their best first half performance of the series so far. .

It only took the South Africans 4 minutes to open the scoring with Mustapha Cassiem with a plunging shot from the right of the circle. Although the South Africans were forced to work hard for the first game, the second came soon after.

Justin Domleo initially reacted to a good save from DJ Strauss and the seasoned activist sent home.

The visitors gave themselves a first impression in the first quarter when dynamic teenager JP Britz struck out 1 goal from a penalty corner with 20 seconds left in the opening rally. Having started the game so brilliantly, the South Africans would have been frustrated to have led by just one goal, but they made sure there was no disappointment in the second quarter.

Mustapha Cassiem made it 3-1 thanks to a quick reaction in a variation of the penalty wedge before his brother Dayaan Cassiem made it 4-1 with a characteristic reverse shot from the top of the circle. Despite the withdrawal from Namibia by Brynn Cleak, South Africa extended the lead with Marvin Simons producing a skillful finish after incredible work from Aiden Tun. At halftime, South Africa led 5-2 and were happy with their best first half of the series.

The third quarter, however, saw Namibia embody the spirit they have aligned in their values ​​and fought with a breathtaking period of hockey to bring the level back. Dakota Hansen started the revival by scoring after a wonderful referee from Ayden Shrives allowed the advantage.

Then, it was JP Brits who scored his second and third goals to restore parity. The third was a pure quality moment for the teenager, who will travel to the PSi U18 national championships on Monday. Namibia had all the momentum and were looking to capitalize by getting the go-ahead, but the African champions showed why they are exactly that.

Having failed to convert their corner kick opportunities, the South Africans were able to count on Mustapha Cassiem who scored his third of the game and his 9th in the series, to finish the series as the top scorer.

Remarkably, for the first time in the series, there was a scoreless final quarter and both teams were content with a one-goal deficit.

Results of the African indoor hockey test series

2nd Test – SA 7-4 Namibia

3rd Test – SA 3-3 Namibia

Pakistan survived a late scare from Romario Shepherd to win the T20I three-game series against the West Indies 2-0 with a narrow nine-point victory in Karachi on Tuesday (December 14th).

Despite losing the first wickets on the power play, Pakistan were backed by Mohammad Rizwan and Haider Ali who provided the platform with a 48-point stand. A 4 for 41 collapse followed, leading to death, but Shadab Khan’s quick cameo of 28 did not come out and Iftikhar Ahmed’s vigorous punches at the end helped the hosts finish with a 172 competitive for 8.

Brandon King led the West Indies hunt with his first T20I fifty, but his departure, followed closely by a three-wicket Shaheen Shah Afridi, sounded the death knell for visitors and Shepherd’s late blow was unsuccessful.

Pakistan lags on power play

The powerplay script was too similar to Game 1 for Pakistan’s taste. Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman fell early, within five overs, and Akeal Hosein again dictated the conditions, allowing the West Indies to take control. It was Rizwan’s call, but Babar fell victim to a brutal Hayden Walsh throw and lazy run, going for a non-existent single. Zaman descended on the track to attack the spinner with his left arm and was beaten to the outside edge while Nicholas Pooran retrieved the ball and whipped the deposits in a flash. Having opted for the bat, Pakistan were in a less than ideal position at 38 for 2 at the start of the fifth and Hosein was knocked out by the seventh, coming back 1 for 16 of his quota.

Rizwan-Haider revives Pakistan

And again, like yesterday, Rizwan and Haider led the recovery. It wasn’t a century of stand this time, but just enough to lay the groundwork for total combat. Rizwan led the way with a 38-30 ball, finding the limit odd and exceeded for not letting the stroke rate drop drastically, while Haider made 31 calm deliveries out of 34 deliveries at the other end. The pair added 48 points to the seven-point association, siding with a respectable 73-2 before a collapse ensued.

Shadab, Iftikhar star with late cameos

The sackings of Rizwan and Haiders in successive Odean Smith overs triggered a mini collapse that saw Pakistan slide from 86 for 2 to 127 for 6 after 17 overs. Iftikhar, well placed on 19 of 14 at the time, led the way with some six from Oshane Thomas to help Pakistan cover some ground on death. Thomas smothered that threat by letting Iftikhar caught up with the last ball of the round, but Shadab (28 * of 12) picked up where he left and slammed three sixes and a four in the final two overs to propel Pakistan to 172. for 8 – hosts scoring 45 out of the last three.

WI loses the first wickets in power play

Mohammad Wasim Jr hit his second ball of the game when Shai Hope mis-timed his stroke to make a single strike for Iftikhar, who was stationed in the middle of the deep wicket. Shamrah Brooks looked menacing during his brief stint – hitting the pitcher who had just secured the breakthrough for a four on a near-perfect Yorkie, then a short arm stroke to clear the deep midwicket for a six. However, Moahmmad Nawaz was quick to put an end to the fireworks display when he trapped Brooks LBW right after to leave the shaky West Indies at 31-2 at the start of the big chase.

King keeps WI on track

King got lucky twice early in his innings – first when a thick leading edge fell just short of the midpoint in the fourth quarter, then four balls later when the pitch underarm. de Babar missed the stumps. And he made sure Pakistan paid the price. The West Indies opener made the most of the reprieve as he kept his team in the chase with his 43 67 balls. With Nicholas Pooran on the other end, King sewed a 54 point stand while the West Indies were at tied with Pakistan at the halfway mark. And while Nawaz took out the visiting captain, just after breaking through the partnership milestone in the 11th, King helped them through the sticky phase by recording his first half-century T20I in 34 deliveries. In his next eight deliveries, King hit two sixes and a four as Windies looked to speed up. However, he ended up handing a single take to Nawaz by trying to club another one for a long time.

Afridi pins WI on the mat

King’s untimely sacking deprived the West Indies of a fatal blow to the acceleration, and if that wasn’t enough, Shaheen Afridi’s 17th triple wicket proved the final nail in the coffin. Tourists needed 46 out of 24, and Smith – at the other end during King’s brief assault – picked up the torch, but fell quickly after a superb demarcation line hold from Asif Ali who saw the soft signal finally confirmed after several reruns from all available angles. Afridi then got rid of Drakes and Walsh in the fifth and sixth deliveries – both bagging golden ducks and leaving WI to wobble at 131 for 8 at the end of the 17th. Running out of mates, Shepherd hit two sixes and just as many. limits to lead a lone fight, but all his undefeated 35 of 19 unbeateners did was narrow the margin for their loss.

Brief Notes: Pakistan 172/8 in 20 overs (Mohammad Rizwan 38, Iftikhar Ahmed 32; Odean Smith 2-24) beats West Indies 163 in 20 overs (Brandon King 67, Romario Shepherd 35 *; Shaheen Shah Afridi 3-26, Mohammad Nawaz 2 -36) by 9 strokes.

Helen Housby will look to help England secure a winning streak against Jamaica this weekend.

The Cumbrian netball star is in line to appear in the second and third tests for the Vitality Roses.

England claimed a 55-45 victory over the Sunshine Girls at Copperbox Arena in London last Sunday.

They are now heading to Nottingham Motorpoint Arena for a double header on Saturday and Sunday.

NSW Swifts star Housby of Drumleaning near Wigton returned to England in the first test.

The England attacking trio, also including Natalie Haythornthwaite and Jo Harten, faced a tough competition from Jamaica and head coach Jess Thirlby said the home side could improve.

“Although they are known, they haven’t been there,” Thirlby told Sky Sports of some of his star players. “It just takes time [to settle].

“Having to do that [find your flow] while playing against world-class opposition is difficult. Jamaica never lets you win easily, so coming away with a 10-goal win when we know we haven’t really hit our straps is pretty impressive.

Housby, speaking ahead of the series, noted the difficulty in siding with Jamaica’s qualities.

The 26-year-old Carlisle-born said: “A team like Jamaica is so different from the rest in the top five in the world.

“The way they play and their natural style is so different.

“Historically, England have met Jamaica at virtually every major, whether in the group stages or in the knockout matches. So for us getting that many minutes against them in preparation is not a problem. bad thing.

England and Housby hope to get back in shape ahead of next year’s Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

This will see the Roses defend the title they so memorably won on Australia’s Gold Coast in 2018, when Housby scored the last game-winning goal to secure England gold.

“It went quite slowly [since 2018] but when I really think about it, so much happened after that moment, ”the Cumbrian added.

“It’s really exciting to be able to compete in these Commonwealth Games at home with the chance to defend a gold medal.

“This is something that we – as an England team – have never done before and I know the girls are ready to do it.”

Tomorrow’s second test is live on Sky Sports and streamed on YouTube at 3:45 p.m. ET.

Rohit Sharma beat in style and led with panache to write an almost perfect story about his full-time debut as captain as India handed T20 World Cup finalist New Zealand the ignominy of ‘a 3-0 series loss after a 73-point win in the third T20 International here on Sunday.

The Indian skipper first made a statement scoring 56 of 31 balls in India’s 184 for 7, then made some impeccable captain calls which saw New Zealand surrender for a paltry 111 races in 17 , 2 overs.

It was a second straight bilateral T20I series triumph with a clean sweep for India after beating the Black Caps 5-0 in their own lair in 2020.

Axar Patel (3/9) played with precision and also got a turn as his three wickets in Powerplay literally ended New Zealand’s resistance and the rest was just a formality.

The New Zealand side looked tired after a grueling T20 World Cup campaign and the result won’t faithfully reflect the team’s abilities as they went through the moves for most of the three games.

For India, which was aiming to reset the button, winning the series will certainly give them some hints for the future.

For Rohit and head coach Rahul Dravid, this series was all about checking what kind of ammo they have in the future.

The return of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ravichandran Ashwin to white ball cricket bodes well as nothing can replace experience.

Venkatesh Iyer has shown potential and needs to be persevered. He has been playing regularly and needs more playing time to become a mid-order enforcer after being a top-notch player.

Harshal Patel is a welcome addition with his sincere efforts, but the middle order is still a bit uncertain as he hasn’t lived up to expectations in any of the games.

A few like Ruturaj Gaikwad and Avesh Khan haven’t been tested, but the skipper will surely use all of his options in the future.

But what he has shown like his predecessor Virat Kohli is his ability to speak with performances that his friends will admire.

When India struck, Rohit’s imperious form was in full view as he posed the platform for a higher than normal score.

In his attempt to test the team’s character by hitting first, the skipper led the way with five fours and three sixes in his sublime stroke but despite a lightning start, the Indians stuttered down the middle before Harshal Patel (18 on 11 balls) and Deepak Chahar (21 not on 8 balls) used his long grips which recovered 50 points in the last five overs.

Ishan Kishan (29 of 21 balls), Shreyas Iyer (25 of 20 balls) and Venkatesh (20 of 15 balls) all started but couldn’t convert it to a big score.

After securing two flashy back-to-back limits from Trent Boult’s very first, there was no turning back for Rohit.

There was no preferential treatment as all fast bowlers were treated with the same disdain as he and Kishan made full use of the Powerplay overs, which yielded 69 points.

Rohit pulled Boult behind the square for his first six and hit Adam Milne (0/47 in 4 overs) over long for the second maximum and Lockie Ferguson’s third was another pull behind the square in the stand under the table. giant electronic board.
