Proteas apply anti-choke at World T20

first_imgSouth Africa 170 for 6 (JP Duminy 86*, Hashim Amla 41, Corey Anderson 2 for 28, Tim Southee 2 for 46)New Zealand 168 for 8 (Ross Taylor 62, Kane Williamson 51, Dale Steyn 4 for 17, Imran Tahir 2 for 27) 24 March 2014 South Africa claimed a remarkable two-run victory over New Zealand at the World Twenty20 in Chittagong, Bangladesh on Monday. Bowler Dale Steyn led the way with a four-wicket haul and a final over which included three dismissals and only four runs. Chasing 171 for victory, New Zealand entered the last over of the contest on 164 for 5, with Ross Taylor well set on 62 off only 36 balls, while Luke Ronchi had five runs to his name off only two balls. Steyn, up to that point, had captured 2 for 13 in three overs, but it would take something special to see the Proteas to victory. Steyn delivered.Final over With his first ball, he had Ronchi caught behind by a diving Quinton de Kock, as the Kiwi wicketkeeper thick edged a full ball behind the wicket. Nathan McCullum, showing his nerves, tried to go for a big hit off Steyn off the first ball he faced, but failed to make contact. Steyn cranked up the pace all the way to 148 km/h with his next delivery, pitching the ball short of a length outside off and McCullum missed it as he tried to work it to the leg side. With only three balls remaining McCullum hit Steyn over extra cover for four, lifting the Black Caps to 168 and leaving them needing only three runs off of the remaining two balls. With the second last delivery of the game, Steyn bowled a short and wide ball to the batsman, who connected with the bottom of his bat. The ball looped to extra cover and South African captain Faf du Plessis made the catch to end McCullum’s short stay. The batsmen had, however, crossed and that brought the dangerous and in-form Taylor onto strike. A boundary would be enough to win the game. With the pressure amped up to 11, Steyn produced a full delivery, wide of off and all Taylor could do was push it back towards the bowler, who calmly completed the run out before streaking off in celebration. He was chased down and surrounded by his ecstatic team-mates as the Proteas revelled in an astonishing victory.‘Steyn is my trump card’ In his post-match interview, captain Faf du Plessis said: “I was thinking all the time that Steyn is my trump card. I need to bring him back in the game. Fantastic effort from him.” He also praised JP Duminy for a superb innings of 86 not out from only 43 balls, which included 10 fours and three sixes. It was the best T20 innings he had yet seen from Duminy, Du Plessis reckoned.Credit to SA Black Caps’ captain Brendon McCullum was generous in his praise of South Africa after suffering a tough defeat. “Credit to SA for the way they hung in there,” he said. “We probably should have won it easily, [but you] can’t take it to the final over against a top bowler like Steyn. Little bit of luck and we’d have got across the line.” The Proteas next face The Netherlands in another Group 1 game on Thursday, followed by England on Saturday.SCORE SUMMARYlast_img read more

MilinkovicSavics agent denies buyout clause speculations

first_imgAccording to the TeamTalk, a day after the Serbian in-demand midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic extended his contract with Lazio, his agent Mateja Kezman announced his client is poised to stay at the Stadio Olimpico despite the interest of numerous major European clubs.Yesterday was a great day for all Biancocelesti fans, as both Ciro Immobile and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic pledged their alliance to the Rome-based club. The extension of the 23-year-old box-to-box midfielder is by far the most significant news for Simone Inzaghi ahead of Lazio’s commitments in Serie A and the Europa League, as Juventus, AC Milan, Manchester United, Chelsea, and Real Madrid all tried to lure the Serbian away from the Stadio Olimpico.The Italian news outlet SportMediaset revealed yesterday that any club that wants to sign Sergej would have to allocate €100 million according to the new buy-out clause.However, player’s agent Mateja Kezman came out to deny those claims, suggesting that Milinkovic-Savic plans to remain at Lazio after the club managed to keep all of their key players during the summer transfer session.“Sergej, Lazio and we in his entourage are all very happy with his new contract,” Kezman told LaLazioSiamoNoi.Ronaldo Nazario came to Real Madrid 17 years ago today Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 2, 2019 It is time to remember the time when Ronaldo Nazario was presented as a Real Madrid player, it was 17 years ago to this…“We’re looking forward with positive energy. The club is strong because they kept all of last season’s players, there’s a serious project and they want to play in the Champions League.“So, everyone just has to concentrate on doing their best and making all the Lazio fans happy.“No-one talked about a release clause, Sergej is very happy in Rome. He’s been here for three years and he loves the club and the city.“He’s concentrating on recapturing his best form.”As things stand, Milinkovic-Savic is set to stay in Rome for another five years, while the interested parties should switch their attention towards other alternatives.last_img read more

Citizens prefer Agüero over Salah any day of the week

first_imgCitizens Kyle Walker and Pep Guardiola believe that Sergio Agüero is still a better player than Mohamed Salah due to his consistency.As we move closer and closer to the crucial Premier League match between Liverpool and Manchester City this Sunday, two Citizens were questioned about the comparisons between strikers Sergio Agüero and Mohamed Salah.While the Egyptian forward had a breakthrough performance with the Reds last season, neither Kyle Walker nor Pep Guardiola believe that he is better than ‘Kun’ Agüero because of the Argentine’s consistency.The Liverpool player’s dip in form this season proves this, because Agüero started the competition in top form, and Mo is very far from the player who finished the previous competitions with nearly 50 goals.“For me, I’d rather mark Salah — every day of the week. I think Sergio has proved it now and I can assure you, having played against him when I was at ­Tottenham, he’s a nightmare – a complete nightmare to play against,” said Walker while being quoted by The Mirror.“You think he’s not interested in the game and all of a sudden it’s in the back of the net. He has that ­quality. He’s done it year in, year out. He is always up there scoring the most goals in the Premier League. He has probably carried City for a lot of years with his goals.”Pep also backed his striker at City over the Egyptian: “Salah is younger, it was his first year back in England since his time at Chelsea, so we will see in the ­future, but a guy who has the quality to score nearly 50 goals in a season always has that quality.”Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league. We will take a…“Football is all about ups and downs. Salah remains an ­excellent player and will score goals in the future. When you are in there, scenting goals, sometimes this happens. Sergio has scored a lot of goals, but there were periods when he didn’t score.”“How many years has ­Sergio scored all those goals, eight or nine years? For Salah, it was the first one so we will see in seven or eight years. For Sergio, his huge value comes from being ­consistent over many, many years.”“It is about being consistent every three days during 11 months. That is why the big, big players around Europe do that because it is the most difficult thing.”Man City’s Kyle Walker on why he’d far rather mark Mohamed Salah than Sergio Aguero, ahead of Liverpool trip #LFC #MCFC | @sbates_people https://t.co/Gm55OsZqmD pic.twitter.com/AmoVqQJNXu— Mirror Football (@MirrorFootball) October 6, 2018last_img read more
