IPL 8: In-form Rajasthan Royals take on resurgent Mumbai Indians

first_imgMumbai Indians, who are yet to win a game in the IPL, will be looking to bounce back todayBuoyed by their thrilling last-ball win against Delhi Daredevils, a confident Rajasthan Royals will take on a beleaguered Mumbai Indians in an Indian Premier League cricket encounter on Tuesday.Having won their first two matches on the road, the Steven Smith-led side will be playing their first match in their “adopted home” venue of Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera.For Royals, the tournament couldn’t have started on a better note as they had two contrasting victories in their first two games.While the the 26-run win against Kings XI Punjab in Pune was a walk in the park, the Royals were stretched to the limit by Daredevils in their second match where Tim Southee got them home with a splendid last-ball boundary.The IPL unearths new talent every year and the talk after the first five days has been about young Baroda all-rounder Deepak Hooda, who has surprised one and all with composure and big-hitting abilities.The 25-ball 54 against DD has made the young Haryanvi ‘talk of the town’ and with Ajinkya Rahane and Smith for company, the youngster would be expected to blossom further.For Mumbai Indians, it’s been the worst start possible as they were comfortably beaten by seven wickets in their opening encounter against defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders while Harbhajan Singh’s individual brilliance could not stop them from losing the second match by 18 runs.On paper, Royals will start as favourites but MI can’t be written off. Even during last season, they had lost five matches on the trot in the UAE leg before recovering remarkably to make it to the play-offs.advertisementBut batting has been a bit of a bother for MI, who have icons like Sachin Tendulkar, Anil Kumble and Ricky Ponting on board to help the players.Barring Rohit Sharma in the first game and Harbhajan in the second, the MI top-order has not performed per expectations.Australian opener Aaron Finch and India’s middle-order batsman Ambati Rayudu have both looked out of sorts while Corey Anderson also has been a bit scratchy despite a half-century in the first match at the Eden Gardens.But with the likes of Kieron Pollard, Finch, Rohit eager to make amends for the failures, the task will be cut out for the likes of Chris Morris, Tim Southee and James Faulkner to use all their variations and change-ups in store on a batting-friendly Motera pitch which also provides some help for spinners.The Royals’ batting line-up is pretty solid despite the absence of regular captain Shane Watson, who has been on the bench for the first two matches with a toe injury.But with current combination, which has Smith, Faulkner, Southee and Morris as the four overseas cricketers in the playing XI, doing well, it will be interesting to see whether the regular captain can find his place in the team.last_img read more

In Career Game, Chuba Hubbard is the Bell Cow OSU Needs

first_imgHe filled it up all night and churned out tough run after tough run, but he punctuated his latest career performance with a 33-yard nail hammered into the Golden Hurricane’s coffin with just two minutes remaining.He also had a 34-yard run called back because of an offensive 12 men on the field penalty. face palm emojiChuba is putting up big numbers early, and gaining a little more than momentum as he enters Big 12 play.Oklahoma St RB Chuba Hubbard a Heisman dark horse. Already with 500+ rushing yards/7 TDs. Statement opportunity at Texas next weekend— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) September 14, 2019The actual count is 521 yards and 66 carries in three games (nearly half of his total carries in 13 games last year). That’s a hair under 8 yards per carry as well as seven rushing touchdowns. It’s still very early, but a little Heisman buzz is not unwarranted for the Cowboys’ new bell-cow back.

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. It was an ugly outing for just about every phase of OSU football on Saturday, at least at one time or another — except one.Spencer Sanders and the Cowboys passing game suffered through its first stinker of his young career. Sanders singlehandedly lost the turnover battle 2-0. Tylan Wallace was electric when he was able to avoid Tulsa’s apparent (and fairly successful) PI-defensive strategy.What’s worse, this was the lowest passing yardage total (169 yards, one TD, one INT) by any Oklahoma State team since Daxx Garman went for 158, one TD and one pick, and barely survived the 2014 Texas game.The defense came up with some big stops in the second half, but was rather welcoming to Tulsa early, allowing 171 yards, six yards per play and 14 points in the second quarter to allow the Golden Hurricane to take a 21-20 halftime lead. It’s Tulsa, maybe I give Jim Knowles’ crew a B-.But OSU’s ground game, led by Chuba Hubbard, was the Cowboys offense. He kept them afloat early and pushed them to victory late.Hubbard turned in a career-high of 256 yards on 32 carries (8 yards per), both of which topped a career mark set two weeks ago in Corvallis. His three rushing scores tied a career best for the second time.Chuba was unstoppable in Tulsa and has been so far this season, anytime it has counted.Mike Gundy said he pulled Chuba against McNeese because he fumbled his second carry of the game (though he stayed in for six more and a whole other quarter). But regardless of whether he sat because it was McNeese or because of ball security, the Cowboys didn’t need him to beat an FCS opponent.They did need him against Tulsa, and he delivered big.The first play from scrimmage was a handoff to the world-class speedster, and he took it 75 yards to the house.Shortly after that he added a 30-yard score, pushing OSU to a 14-0 lead and padding the numbers on an all-time opening quarter.last_img read more
