IPL के दौरान कोविड-19 का शिकार हुए साहा अब पूरी तरह उबर चुके हैं

आंध्र प्रदेश के विकेटकीपर बल्लेबाज़ केएस भरत को विश्व टेस्ट चैम्पियनशिप और पांच टेस्ट मैचों की सीरीज़ के लिए भारत के आगामी इंग्लैंड दौरे परऋद्धिमान साहा के स्टैंडबाय के रूप में शामिल किया गया है। हाल ही में साहा कोविड-19 बीमारी से ठीक हुए हैं।

भरत 19 मई को मुंबई पहुंचे, जहां 2 जून को लंदन के लिए उड़ान भरने से पहले अधिकांश भारतीय दल अपने होटल के कमरों में दो सप्ताह के लिए क्वारेंटाइन हैं। भारत ए के लिए नियमित रूप से विकेटकीपर रहे भरत, फरवरी-मार्च में इंग्लैंड के खिलाफ़ घरेलू टेस्ट सीरीज़ में भी स्टैंडबाय खिलाड़ियों का हिस्सा थे।

IPL में सनराइज़र्स हैदराबाद की तरफ से खेलने वाले साहा ने दिल्ली में दो हफ़्ते क्वारेंटाइन में बिताए। इसके बाद वह कोलकाता में अपने घर लौट आए। पहले इंग्लैंड के खिलाफ़ सीरीज़ और फिर आईपीएल के चलते काफी समय घर से दूर रहे साहा ने बीसीसीआई से गुज़ारिश की थी कि अगले सप्ताह मुंबई में भारतीय टीम से जुड़ने से पहले उन्हें कुछ समय अपने परिवार के साथ बिताने का मौक़ा दिया जाए।

सावधानी बरतते हुए, चयनकर्ताओं ने अंतिम समय पर भरत को टीम में शामिल किया है। इससे पहले इंग्लैंड दौरे के लिए 20 सदस्यीय दल की घोषणा करते समय उन्होंने विकेटकीपर के तौर पर ऋषभ पंत और ऋद्धिमान साहा का चयन किया था। आईपीएल 2021 के स्थगित होने से एक दिन पहले ही साहा कोविड पॉज़िटिव पाए गए थे।

Match Preview – Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh, Bangladesh in Zimbabwe 2021, 2nd ODI

Preview

Bangladesh look the better side, but if Zimbabwe’s batters come good, they could well script a bounceback

Big picture

For two successive games now – in the one-off Test and the first ODI – Zimbabwe have had a great start with the ball but have failed to build on the advantage, allowing Bangladesh to rebuild after early wickets. On both occasions, Zimbabwe finished on the wrong side of the result. As they face Bangladesh in the second ODI on Sunday, the batters must add to the work of the bowlers, before the series goes away from them.

In the first ODI, Blessing Muzarabani led the pace attack with a fine new-ball display. He removed both Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan and, at one stage, Bangladesh were pinned at 76 for 4. But Liton Das rescued the team by scoring a century before Shakib, on his way to clinching the top spot among Bangladesh’s ODI wicket-takers, helped Bangladesh post a resounding win with a five-for.

Ben Stokes reveals playing through ‘ridiculous’ finger pain during Pakistan ODIs

“Sometimes though you just have to grin and bear it, and captaining England is one of those reasons”

Ben Stokes has revealed he has had a pain-killing steroid injection in his left index finger after playing through “ridiculous” pain during England’s ODI series win against Pakistan.

Stokes had fractured the finger in mid-April while playing for the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL. He played six T20 Blast games for Durham in June and early July but had not been scheduled to take part in either the ODI or T20I leg of Pakistan’s tour until a number of Covid-19 cases in the England camp forced the entire squad into self-isolation, with Stokes captaining a new-look ODI side to a 3-0 win.

“It was a totally unexpected set of games for me and the truth is I would never have played under normal circumstances due to how much pain I was in with my left index finger,” Stokes wrote in his Daily Mirror column. “The surgery was a success after I had broken it at the IPL, but it was still so painful.

“Sometimes though you just have to grin and bear it, and captaining England is one of those reasons. The finger has healed structurally, but the pain was just ridiculous for where it should be so that is why I have now had an injection to ease it for the rest of the summer.

West Indies vs Australia, 5th T20I, 2021

The visitors are already without many players who would make up their usual ODI top order

Australia will monitor the fitness of captain Aaron Finch ahead of the ODI series against West Indies after he picked up a knee injury during the final T20I in St Lucia.

Finch twisted his knee in the field and was significantly hampered during the Australian chase, especially when running between the wickets. His innings of 34 was ended by a spectacular catch at long-on by Fabian Allen as Australia fell 16 short to concede the series 4-1. A Cricket Australia spokesperson said Finch had a mild knee complaint earlier in the tour, which he had fully recovered from.

The squad travels to Barbados on Saturday ahead of the three-match ODI series, which begins on Tuesday. They are already without the majority of the players who would make up their usual ODI top order, so they would want Finch in their XI.
