जुलाई में श्रीलंका दौरे पर सीमित ओवर की सीरीज़ के लिए राहुल द्रविड़ निभा सकते हैं भारतीय क्रिकेट टीम के मुख्य कोच की भूमिका। हालांकि बीसीसीआई की ओर से इस बात का अभी कोई औपचारिक ऐलान नहीं हुआ है, लेकिन ईएसपीएन क्रिकइंफ़ो को मिली जानकारी के मुताबिक़ द्रविड़ के कंधों पर ये ज़िम्मेदारी आ सकती है।

टीम इंडिया के हेड कोच रवि शास्त्री, बोलिंग कोच भरत अरुण और बैटिंग कोच विक्रम राठोर जून की शुरुआत में ही इंग्लैंड के लिए रवाना हो जाएंगे। वे सभी सितंबर तक इंग्लैंड में ही रहेंगे, जहां भारत को पहले वर्ल्ट टेस्ट चैंपियनशिप का फ़ाइनल खेलना और फिर मेज़बान टीम के ख़िलाफ़ पांच मैचों की टेस्ट सीरीज़ भी खेली जाएगी।

इस बीच जुलाई में भारत को सीमित ओवर की सीरीज़ के लिए श्रीलंका का दौरा करना है, जहां 13 से 27 जुलाई के बीच भारत और श्रीलंका के बीच तीन मैचों की ODI और T20I सीरीज़ प्रस्तावित है। इस दौरे पर भारतीय क्रिकेट टीम के बेंच स्ट्रेंथ के पास ख़ुद को साबित करने का सुनहरा मौक़ा होगा, क्योंकि इंग्लैंड गए भारत के शीर्ष 20 खिलाड़ी और चार स्टैंडबाय खिलाड़ी श्रीलंका दौरे का हिस्सा नहीं होंगे।

राहुल द्रविड़ लंबे समय से भारतीय अंडर-19 टीम और भारत ए के कोच रहे हैं, द्रविड़ उन ज़्यादातर खिलाड़ियों के साथ रहे हैं जिन्हें इस दौरे के लिए टीम में चुना जाना है। फ़िलहाल द्रविड़ बेंगलुरु में स्थित नेशनल क्रिकेट एकेडमी (NCA) के हेड हैं।

ईएसपीएन क्रिकइंफ़ो को मिली जानकारी के मुताबिक़ पूर्व भारतीय तेज़ गेंदबाज़ पारस महांब्रे श्रीलंका दौरे पर बोलिंग कोच हो सकते हैं। महांब्रे भी भारत ए और अंडर-19 टीम के कोच रह चुके हैं।

द्रविड़ ने टीम इंडिया के युवा खिलाड़ियों को तराशने और उन्हें परखने में बड़ी भूमिका निभाई है, उनकी कोचिंग में भारत ए और अंडर-19 टीम ने कई प्रतियोगिताओं में जीत दर्ज की है। बीसीसीआई अध्यक्ष सौरव गांगुली भी NCA में शानदार योगदान के लिए अपने पूर्व साथी की तारीफ़ कर चुके हैं।

श्रीलंका क्रिकेट के अनुसार भारत और श्रीलंका के बीच 13, 16 और 19 जुलाई को ODI सीरीज़ खेली जाएगी, जबकि T20I सीरीज़ 22, 24 और 27 जुलाई को आयोजित होगी। ऐसा माना जा रहा है कि भारतीय टीम 5 जुलाई को श्रीलंका पहुंचेगी जिसके बाद उन्हें एक सप्ताह तक क्वरंटीन रहना होगा। दौरा ख़त्म होने के बाद 28 जुलाई को भारतीय क्रिकेट टीम घर वापस आ जाएगी।

कोविड सुरक्षा माणकों के मद्देनज़र सभी मुक़ाबले बायो-बबल के अंदर होंगे और मैदान में दर्शकों को आने की इजाज़त नहीं होगी। हंबनटोटा के पास स्थित सूरियावेवा ग्राउंड और दंबुला में स्थित अंतर्राष्ट्रीय स्टेडियम को मैचों की मेज़बानी मिल सकती है।

इससे पहले भारत ने श्रीलंका का दौरा 2018 में किया था जहां टीम इंडिया ने निदाहास टी20 त्रिकोणीय सीरीज़ की विजेता रही थी। जबकि सभी फ़ॉर्मेट की द्विपक्षीय सीरीज़ के लिए भारत ने आख़िरी बार 2017 में श्रीलंका का दौरा किया था।

Recent Match Report – Bears vs Northants North Group 2021

Debutant thrashes half-century before Jake Lintott helps turn the screw in Northants chase

Birmingham 191 for 6 (Benjamin 60*) beat Northamptonshire 177 for 8 (Keogh 55*, Rhodes 3-41) by 14 runs

Birmingham Bears sealed their spot in the Vitality Blast’s quarter-finals by closing their group campaign with a 14-run victory over Northamptonshire Steelbacks.

Their win turned the pressure on Worcestershire Rapids, who failed to defend 169 against Leicestershire Foxes later in the evening. Will Rhodes’s side faced a tense wait but were able to celebrate after Josh Inglis’ run-scoring form continued with his second Blast hundred of the season. It means the Bears will face Yorkshire at Chester-le-Street on August 24.
The Bears’ total of 191 for 5 owed much to a dazzling debut from Chris Benjamin. The 22-year-old struck an unbeaten 60 from 34 balls, with seven fours and two sixes, to lead a recovery from 68 for 4.
The Steelbacks, qualification hopes long extinct, mustered 177 for 8 in reply. They threatened briefly through Ricardo Vasconcelos, who struck 39 off 33 balls, and Josh Cobb, and Rob Keogh bashed an unbeaten 55 from 33 balls when the cause was lost, but the chase fell away in the face of pressure built by superb spin bowling – 4-0-19-2 – from Jake Lintott.

After choosing to bat, the Bears received a brisk start from Adam Hose. The opener was injured embarking on a quick single on 5, resumed with a runner and struck 37 from 28 before skying Graeme White to long-on. Three wickets fell in seven balls as Tom Taylor’s excellent throw punished Kyle Mayers for hesitating at the start of a second run and Freddie Heldreich trapped Sam Hain lbw.

That was 68 for 4 but Benjamin, having already had a chance to acclimatise himself as a runner for Hose, started audaciously by reverse-sweeping his first ball for four. That launched a stand off 84 in 52 balls with skipper Will Rhodes, the debutant racing to a 27-ball half-century.

Fourteen balls remained when Rhodes lifted Mohammad Nabi to deep midwicket. Those 14 balls produced 39 runs as Carlos Brathwaite celebrated his 33rd birthday with three sixes in a thunderous ten-ball 27.

After the Steelbacks lost Ben Curran, lbw to Rob Yates, to the seventh ball, Vasconcelos and Cobb thrashed 65 in 34 balls before Cobb was brilliantly caught by Rhodes at mid-on off Craig Miles.

Seven runs from Lintott’s first two overs cranked up the pressure, which told when Vasconcelos top-edged Rhodes to short third man. Lintott removed Taylor and White with successive balls and the Steelbacks’ Blast campaign was laid to rest while the Bears’ attention turned to Leicester.

Sri Lanka vs India, 1st ODI, 2021

The return of his pairing with Yuzvendra Chahal paid dividends for India

Among the eleven Indians who took the field against Sri Lanka in the first ODI, perhaps none had a greater point to prove than Kuldeep Yadav. The left-arm wristspinner has not been part of India’s first-choice XI in limited-overs formats recently, and faced several questions about his form. He responded by bowling with guile and bit to return 2 for 48, putting to rest the demons of his last ODI outing for India, where he had given up 84 runs in 10 overs as Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes ran amok.

After the game against Sri Lanka on Sunday, Yadav pointed to his past record when asked if he feared his white-ball career was over, and said it would be nicer if that was talked about as much as the times he’s not done well.

“Sometimes you get hit for runs, but other times you get wickets too. I have taken three-four wickets often, taken five-six wickets too,” Yadav said. “If people talk about that more, it’ll be nicer (smiles). Nobody’s cricket [career] is finished after one game or two games. I think the last series was good for England because the pitches were very good in Pune. Spinners didn’t have much help. It happens sometimes, the pitch is not in your favour. But sometimes you should credit the batsmen too for batting well, rather than say someone’s cricket is finished.”

Yadav did admit to nerves at the start of the game, nerves compounded by spending a lot of time on the bench, and within bio-bubbles, which can foster self-doubt even with well-intentioned advice.

Luke Wright, Delray Rawlins overhaul small target to secure quarter-final vs Yorkshire

Sussex 134 for 6 (Wright 39, Podmore 3-35) beat Kent 130 for 7 (Bopara 3-15) by four wickets

Jofra Archer made a low-key return from his elbow injury to help Sussex seal a quarter-final spot in the Vitality Blast by beating a depleted Kent side by four wickets at Canterbury.

Archer was restricted to three overs as an injury precaution, returning figures of 0 for 20 as he bowled two overs with the new ball and then returned to bowl the 19th. It was his first appearance since May, when he aggravated an elbow injury during a County Championship match against Kent and was required to undergo surgery.

Sussex finished on 134 for 6, Luke Wright‘s 39 and Delray Rawlins‘ 33 steering them into the last eight with 2.5 overs to spare.
Earlier Ravi Bopara took 3 for 15 and David Wiese 2 for 16 as a Kent side with 15 first-teamers still isolating struggled 130 for 7, Calum MacLeod – the Scotland batter on a short-term deal – their top scorer with 31.

Kent had already ensured top spot in the South Group and will play their quarter-final against Birmingham Bears at the St Lawrence Ground despite tonight’s defeat, while Sussex will play Yorkshire at Chester-le-Street on August 24.
