Cricket News ICC Women’s World T20 witnesses an entry into the million club – This is how

first_imgNew Delhi: The ICC Women’s World T20 encounter between West Indies and Sri Lanka saw the hosts thrash the Lankans by 83 runs to enter the semi-final of the tournament. An aggressive 62 from Hayley Matthews, followed by aggressive knocks of 49 and 41 from Deandra Dottin and Stefanie Taylor helped the Windies reach 187/5 and Sri Lanka proved to be no match, losing the match by a heavy margin with Matthews taking three wickets. The result also helped England enter the last four, having earlier defeated South Africa with Anya Shrubsole taking a hat-trick. However, during the Sri Lanka innings, an instance occurred which propelled women’s cricket into the elite league in the sport.Read More | ICC Women’s World T20: West Indies, England enter semi-finalOn the fifth ball of the fourth innings of the Sri Lankan chase, medium pacer Shakera Selman bowled the one millionth recorded delivery in women’s cricket. The action was equally eventful, with the batter Kavisha Dilhari getting a leading edge back to the bowler. Selman tried to collect it, but she could not hold on to the catch. However, she attempted a run-out at the striker’s end but failed in that as well.Read More | Avoid confrontation with Virat Kohli: Du Plessis advices AustraliaThus, Selman etched her name in the history books and she joins a select list of players who have entered the million club either with the bat or with the ball in men’s cricket.Millionth ball and run in men’s cricketTest cricket originated in 1877 and the first match was between Australia and England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Cody Bellinger continues hot start with grand slam as Dodgers beat Giants

first_img Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies “I think last year was certainly an outlier for me, for him, for us,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “I saw some good things in spring training and you’ve got to give him a runway. So we’re doing that and, to his credit, he’s putting quality at-bats together.”Roberts alluded to Bellinger’s “track record” against left-handers, referring to his NL Rookie of the Year season in 2017 when Bellinger’s OPS against left-handed pitchers (.903) was better than all but three left-handed hitters in MLB (Joey Votto, Charlie Blackmon and Corey Seager) and his 12 home runs were the most by any left-handed hitter off left-handed pitching.Bellinger said he never lost confidence against lefties even when he was benched against them last year. But he did lose his way.“I think I just got away from my plan,” Bellinger said. “When that happens, when your plan and your approach aren’t there, the results probably won’t be there.”Bellinger went to work this offseason, watching video of the good and bad of his first two seasons with hitting coaches Robert Van Scoyoc and Brant Brown. Becoming more advanced in the mental side of the game has been “a huge part” of his hot start, Bellinger said. “I think it’s just the consistency factor that the coaches have helped me with and that I’m learning,” he said. “Just learning, watching video, understanding what I’m good at, what I’m not good at. That was more offseason work. During the season, you just grind. It’s a cat-and-mouse game and you do what you can to beat the pitcher that day.”The Dodgers have definitely been the predator, not the prey this season.They have homered in each of their first six games, matching the franchise record originally set by the 1954 Brooklyn Dodgers. Going back to last year, they have hit at least one home run in each of their last 10 regular-season games.Kiké Hernandez’s abuse of Bumgarner has been fairly constant for going on five years now.Hernandez was 2 for 3 against Bumgarner on Tuesday, driving in the first run in the Dodgers’ five-run third inning after Bumgarner had drawn an error on Russell Martin’s comebacker and walked the opposing pitcher, Hyun-Jin Ryu.Hernandez continues to be a large thorn in Bumgarner’s side. He is 21 for 42 (.500) with five doubles and four home runs against the Giants left-hander.Like Bellinger, Hernandez is off to a hot start, batting .400 (8 for 20) with two home runs and cementing his status as the primary second baseman with exceptional defense. He was all over the infield Tuesday – turning one double play with shortstop Corey Seager, another without him and making a diving play on a line drive – and the outfield as well at times. Playing deep in a defensive shift, he made a sliding stop on Brandon Belt’s hard ground ball, firing to Ryu covering first.Those were all in support of Ryu, whose most challenging physical activity for five innings might have been trotting home on Bellinger’s slam. Ryu retired 15 of the first 16 batters he faced and needed only 48 pitches to get through the first five scoreless innings.“He has a lot of weapons,” Roberts said of Ryu. “So when you have fastball command which he had tonight and he can front-to-back guys with his changeup or his breaking ball, speed them up by throwing the cutter inside to right-handers … if he’s executing, he can attack guys in a lot of different ways.”Ryu ran into trouble in the sixth, giving up four hits, including a two-run home run to Bumgarner. But he left with a 5-2 lead after becoming the first Dodgers starter to go seven innings this season.Caleb Ferguson handled the eighth and passed a four-run lead, 6-2, to Yimi Garcia for the ninth.Related Articles PreviousGeorge Lombard #29 of the Los Angeles Dodgers shows off his socks against the San Francisco Giants in the third inning of a MLB baseball game at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday, April 02, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

(Photo by Keith Birmingham, Pasadena Star-News/SCNG)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Cody Bellinger has made it clear. He doesn’t want to be left out again.Eager to put the platooning of the last months of the 2018 season behind him, Bellinger hit a grand slam off Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner in the third inning on Tuesday night and the Dodgers held on for a 6-5 victory over San Francisco.The home run was Bellinger’s fifth this season, matching Oakland’s Khris Davis for the major-league lead. It is Bellinger’s first off a left-hander since last Aug. 29.He didn’t take many swings against left-handers after that. This year, though, Bellinger and A.J. Pollock are the only Dodgers to start each of the first six games this season – whether the opposing starter was right- or left-handed. Bellinger is off to a 12-for-28 start that includes 3 for 10 against left-handed pitching, a positive sign after last year’s .226 average against lefties that landed him on the bench against them in August, September and October. Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco center_img How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire That’s when things got complicated.After a leadoff double by Evan Longoria and a walk created a save situation, Kenley Jansen came in.First baseman Max Muncy bobbled a potential double-play grounder, startling Jansen when he turned and threw to first base instead. The error loaded the bases for the Giants and Jansen forced in a run by walking Yangervis Solarte on four pitches.Two more scored on a one-out single by Gerardo Parra, making it one-run game before Jansen got Pablo Sandoval to hit into a double play. Once again, it was Hernandez with a strong-armed turn to get the out at first.Dodgers relievers have now given up 20 runs in 25 innings over the first six games.“Four-and-two – that’s all you can do with that,” Jansen said, citing the bottom line (the Dodgers’ win-loss record) when asked about the bullpen. “You can’t look at what’s already happened. It’s a long season. Once we all get things locked down, we’re going to have a lockdown bullpen.” Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
