Yuzvendra Chahal achieved a noteworthy feat of taking six wickets in the Vijay Hazare Trophy match between Uttarakhand and Haryana, surpassing the landmark of 200 List-A wickets with his outstanding effort. He didn’t make the India T20I team for the Australia series, but he still showed off his skills by taking three wickets in his first four overs. His career high was achieved when he dismissed Akhil Rawat in the ninth over, which was his turning point.

Chahal’s abilities were evident when, two balls after taking his 200th wicket, he quickly secured his sixth List A five-for by removing Mayank Mishra for a duck. After completing an incredible six-wicket haul in his final over, the accomplished spinner finished with outstanding stats of 6/26 in 10 overs. He was left out of the Asia Cup and 2023 World Cup lineups despite his outstanding performances; Kuldeep Yadav was selected ahead of him.

The spinner from Haryana’s last appearance for India was during the August tour of the West Indies. Even though his career has seen ups and downs, he remains calm under pressure. Chahal indicated that he was accustomed to handling problems of this nature in a recent interview over his exclusion from the ODI World Cup.

Mohammed Shami mom was unable to attend the much-awaited match on Sunday. Ara, who is dealing with some serious health problems, was taken to the hospital on Sunday morning after feeling lightheaded. The pacer’s family had originally intended for everyone to be there at the match; instead, only Haseeb, his older brother, and his relatives made the trip to Ahmedabad.

News 18 said that Ara recently discussed her chronic health difficulties with someone who had communicated with her. On Sunday, though, she had a standard examination before being brought to the hospital. Shami’s younger brother, Mohammed Kaif, a former domestic cricket player for India, was oblivious to the circumstances.

India went on to defeat New Zealand by an overwhelming 70 runs in the first semi-final of the 2023 World Cup. Before the match began, there were rumors that the host country had changed the pitch for the crucial match. They were eager to play on the field of their choice rather than the newly prepared one used for the semifinal. Shubman Gill, an Indian cricket player, discussed the same issue at his news conference after the game and said he didn’t know the full story.

“I recently learned that the pitch was the subject of dispute. In his post-match press conference, Shubman Gill questioned, “What was the controversy?” Outlook cited him.

If I hadn’t experienced cramps, I would have received my hundred: Shubman Gill
Regarding the semi-final game, Rohit Sharma and Gill once again struck the mark in providing India with a great start. Nevertheless, Gill’s performance at Wankhede was hampered by severe cramps as he attempted to get his first World Cup century. While India amassed a huge 397 runs against New Zealand, Gill withdrew at 79*.

Even though Shubman Gill came back into the game later on, the conditions of the match prevented him from reaching his century, as he finished his innings with eight fours and three sixes to finish on 80* runs. India will not participate in the ODI World Cup 2023 final in Ahmedabad on November 19.

“If I hadn’t experienced cramps, I would have received my 100. Whether or not I scored a hundred, we were still able to reach the target total, which was what we had actually hoped for about the 25th or 30th over. It doesn’t matter if I received a hundred or not since we made that many,” Gill continued.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) found itself in hot water before the India vs. New Zealand ODI World Cup semi-final match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday, November 15. The BCCI was accused of altering the scheduled surface. For the high-profile match, the BCCI chose to utilize an old pitch rather than a “fresh pitch” sanctioned by ICC pitch specialist Andy Atkinson, according to a Daily Mail story. Former captains of the Indian team, Sunil Gavaskar and Michael Vaughan, shared their thoughts on the subject.

As the pitch is available to all teams, I don’t think there needs to be a lot of debate over what this pitch will or won’t do. This Indian team is definitely capable of managing any surface, in my opinion. You’ve already witnessed that in the competition. Additionally, if the pitch is drier—which it probably is because the rains have stopped— Therefore, there won’t even be a trace of wetness. Indeed, there will be one in which there may or may not be a small amount of spin. However, Gavaskar told India Today, “I don’t think there should be too much of a problem because the Mumbai pitch is generally very good for batting.”

“I don’t think there would be much of a problem with the pitch given the caliber of bowlers we have who have bowled exceptionally well, whether bowling first or second. This usually happens, I believe, the night before a game when you have nothing to write about and you attempt to write something because you want to fill your columns and you want to speak about pitches and things like that. It makes no difference to me. They converse without a doubt about whether the pitch changes after the toss. However, the 74-year-old continued, “I don’t think any noise should be made at all if the pitch is the same before the toss.

It was on his official ‘X’ (formerly known as Twitter) handle that Michael Vaughan said the semi-final ought to be played on a new field.

“New ground should be used for a World Cup semifinal. The former England captain wrote on X, “It’s as easy as that.

It is necessary to acknowledge that this conflict has somewhat overshadowed the intriguing semifinal match between two of the top cricket teams.

In the current ICC Cricket World Cup, South Africa and Australia will play in the second semi-final. On November 16, the explosive match will take place in Kolkata’s renowned Eden Gardens. At the same time, the opening knockout match between New Zealand and India is set to take place at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium one day earlier. South Africa captain Temba Bavuma participated in a longer-than-30-minute optional training session prior to the crucial match.

The 33-year-old batsman in Kolkata completed a few circuits around the outfield. After that, he performed a few fitness exercises as directed by strength and conditioning coach Runeshan Moodley and team physiotherapist Sizwe Hadebe.

After that, the leadoff hitter resumed his shuttle runs, increasing his pace with each forward and backward loop. Even though he occasionally stooped and put his hands by his sides, he didn’t appear uncomfortable when jogging. It was also noticed that the leadoff hitter had some strapping on his leg.

Later in the workout, he was observed conversing with coach Rob Walter after shadow-batting with a stump. After observing Rassie van der Dussen’s batting, he went to the net and batted with a stump. Even so, the first hitter advanced to knock a few balls down the field.

“During the past 72 hours, there have been positive, objective indicators of improvement with Temba’s right hamstring strain. The South African medical team told ESPNcricinfo, “We will continuously assess his progress through the management plan over the next few days to give him the best chance to play on Thursday.”

Temba Bavuma was working on Monday as “part of the rehabilitation strategies of the recovery plan,” not for a fitness test, the medical team also made clear.

India advanced to the tournament’s semi-finals and will take on New Zealand at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium after winning all nine of their league matches in the 2017 ODI World Cup. Prior to that, Mumbai police had received reports of ticket resale and are actively investigating the matter.

Tickets priced between INR 25,000 and INR 50,000 are being sold, according to Praveen Munde, DCP (Circle-1). He said that an additional investigation is presently in progress and that his team has already gotten in touch with the accused.
“The World Cup match ticket for New Zealand vs. India, which normally costs between Rs. 2500 and Rs. 4000, was being sold for Rs. 25000–50000. Our team got the information, got in touch with the accused, and things got done. The inquiry into the matter is still ongoing, according to Praveen.

This is nothing new in the ongoing competition, though. Numerous such instances were discovered during the league stage, but thus far neither the cricket board nor the municipal authorities have been able to stem the flow.

However, India’s matchup with New Zealand in the semifinals is a rematch of the competition from 2019. The Men in Blue have a painful history of losing to the Kiwis in knockout matches, as evidenced by their recent defeat in Manchester. against November 15, though, the Rohit Sharma-led team will be confident in their chances as they take on New Zealand because they are playing in fantastic form.

Since their current playing lineup has been effective, India is unlikely to alter it. Shubman Gill, Rohit Sharma, and Virat Kohli each scored fifty runs in their last league match against the Netherlands, while Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul each scored a century. All of the hitters are hitting well right now. Bowlers have also performed admirably thus far.

New Zealand strikes the ideal balance in this regard. In the most recent encounter, Trent Boult displayed his class, while youngster Rachin Ravindra has been one of the tournament’s performers. As a result, when these two teams play, a fantastic match is anticipated.

In the final league match of the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023, India easily trounced the Netherlands by 160 runs, as was predicted. The competition marked the ‘Men in Blue”s tenth straight victory. For the Indian supporters, Virat Kohli first wicket in nine years in ODI cricket was the cherry on top.

After deciding to bat first, India scored 410/4 on Sunday in front of a raucous crowd at Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium. The Netherlands, in response, were bowled out for 250. Following the conclusion of the first inning, the outcome of the match seemed inevitable because it would never be simple to chase 411 against a bowling team as hot as India. Still, few would have guessed that Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, rather than Mohammed Shami, who is currently playing well, would be listed in the wickets column.

In the prior games, too, fans had insisted that Kohli get the ball. Prior to the Netherlands game, captain Rohit had only made three deliveries with him. The fervent Bengaluru audience yelled “Kohli ko bowling do [Give Kohli the ball],” and Rohit complied.

Dutch skipper Scott Edwards and Sybrand Engelbrecht shared a 39-run fourth-wicket stand till Kohli dismissed Edwards in his second over, caught behind down the leg-side. KL Rahul sprinted to his left to accept a well-executed catch. Kohli and his colleagues were ecstatic, as the audience sent out a cheer.

Cricket fans experienced a wave of nostalgia after witnessing Kohli’s dismissal of Kane Williamson in the 2008 U-19 World Cup semifinals. The Delhi player bowled a delivery that was identical to the one he bowled to Edwards, but missed Williamson’s willow. But then Shreevats Goswami lost his footing and stumped the Kiwi batter cleanly.

Earlier this month, veteran player Paul Compton of the De La Salle Kingsgrove Cricket Club in Sydney achieved a noteworthy milestone when he claimed his 1000th wicket for the side. In his 40th season with the team, the 60-year-old, who started his senior cricket career with DLSKCC in 1983, accomplished this milestone. In the final over of Peakhurst Park’s match versus Coogee Bay this past weekend, he had his historic moment. With a top-edged pull shot from Finn O’Neill, which partner Achilleas Spanos expertly collected at short mid-wicket, Compton claimed his 1000th wicket.

Paul Compton became a life member of the DLSKCC in 2011 after winning seven premierships. a career high of 8–30 against the Allwah Hunters in 1987 served as a career high. The previous January, he scored his first career hat-trick against Illawarra Catholic Club. Remarkably, Compton disclosed that he was more excited about his hat trick than about hitting the 1000-wicket mark.

“I was more excited about getting a hat-trick than I was about taking the 1000th wicket.” I swear, I must have made nearly 80 attempts. So many have been reported. “Releasing that burden from my back felt amazing,” Compton said to Fox Cricket.

Paul Compton said, “That last hundred was the hardest; I just wanted to get it done.”
A total of 422 clean bowled dismissals, 458 catches, 113 leg before wickets, two stumpings, and one hit wicket comprised his incredible 1000 wickets for the team. Compton said that he experienced moments of frustration throughout his quest for this momentous milestone, as the final 100 wickets proved to be a very difficult task.
