1st T20I: Australia Women Thrash India Women By 9 Wickets, Take 1-0 Series Lead

Mumbai, Dec 9, Australia Women produced a dominant performance to hammer India Women by nine wickets in the first T20I to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series at D.Y. Patil Stadium, here on Friday. Brilliant quickfire knocks by Deepti Sharma (36 not out off 15) and Richa Ghosh (36 off 20) propelled India Women to 172/5 in 20 overs. Apart from Deepti and Richa, the likes of Shafali Verma (21 off 10), Smriti Mandhana (28 off 22), and Harmanpreet Kaur (21 off 23) got decent starts but couldn't convert to big innings. In reply, opener Beth Mooney (89 not out off 57) played a sensational knock and led Australia's domination throughout the innings. Mooney was well supported by Tahlia McGrath (40 not out off 29) and Alyssa Healy (37 off 23) as Australia chased down the target quite comfortably in overs with nine wickets in hand. Devika Vaidya (1/33) was the lone wicket-taker for India, who were ordinary with the ball as well in the fielding. Earlier, put into bat first, Shafali Verma smacked 21 runs off 10 balls to give India a flying start before falling to Elysse Perry in the third over. After Shafali's wicket, Smriti Mandhana continued the charge and hit a few boundaries to continue the momentum. But, Perry struck again with the wicket of Jemimah Rodrigues (0), leaving India at 45/2 in 4.5 overs. The Aussies managed to keep a lid on the rate between overs 6-12 and also took the wickets of Smriti and Harmanpreet during that period. India were four down for 76 in the 12th over, when Richa Ghosh walked out to bat and changed the complexion of the game. She stitched a quickfire half-century partnership with Devika Vaidya (25 not out), which got India going. Richa got out in the 17th over but she had set the tone for Deepti Sharma, who came out all guns blazing. Deepti mashed four fours in a row in the last over to take India to a score of 172/5 in 20 overs.

2nd Test, Day 1: Abrar's Dream Debut, Babar's Fifty Give Pakistan Edge Over England

Multan, Dec 9, Pakistan spinner Abrar Ahmed's dream debut and skipper Babar Azam's fifty gave the hosts an edge over England on the first day of the second Test at the Multan Cricket Stadium, here on Friday. The 24-year-old leg-spinner's 7-114 helped Pakistan bowl out England for 281 in their first innings. In reply, Pakistan were 107-2 at the stumps on Day 1, with Babar Azam unbeaten on 61 and Saud Shakeel on 32, trailing by 174 runs. Of the 12 wickets that fell on the day, James Anderson was the only fast bowler to dismiss a batter when he found an edge off Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq, who departed without scoring. Abdullah Shafique scored 14 before edging spinner Jack Leach to keeper Ollie Pope, but Babar and Saud saw off the day with a third-wicket unbroken stand of 56. Earlier, Abrar was introduced in just the ninth over, and the spinner cleaned up Zak Crawley in his first over with a sharp googly to break the opening stand but went on to concede 11 runs off his next over as England continued to attack. After five overs, Abrar had conceded 39 runs as Ben Duckett and Ollie Pope put up a good partnership. He himself broke the stand in the 19th over by trapping Duckett in front. He followed it up with the big wicket of Joe Root, trapped LBW with another superb leg-break. Ben Stokes (30) and Will Jacks (31) showed some resistance after lunch with a 61-run sixth-wicket stand before Abrar bamboozled the England captain with a superb wrong'un. Ben Duckett (63) and Pope (60) were the main scorers in an England innings that finished at the stroke of tea after skipper Stokes won the toss and decided to bat. The visitors managed to add fifty runs for the last three wickets courtesy of a free-stroking Mark Wood who finished with 36 before Zahid Mahmood got three to wrap up the innings quickly and finish with 3-63.

Kim Garth is making her debut for Australia while Anjali Sarvani is also playing for the first time for India. As per the Australian skipper, it will be difficult for the bowler to grip the ball with dew, so she decided to bowl first. We are going to have a bowl. Hope to suck into this powerful Indian line-up. It looks like a good chance to get it together, and hopefully with a little bit of dew later, it might get a bit hard to grip the ball, said Healy at the toss.

Multan, Dec 9, Pakistan spinner Abrar Ahmed impressed with the ball on his debut, claiming 7 for 114 on the first day of the second Test against England at the Multan Cricket Stadium, here on Friday. The 24-year-old leg-spinner's 7/114 is the third-best haul in an innings by a Pakistan bowler in their first Test. He is the 22nd bowler in men's Tests to take seven wickets or more in an innings on debut. Abrar cleaned up Zak Crawley in his first over with a sharp googly to break the opening stand, but went on to concede 11 runs off his next over as England continued to attack. After five overs, Abrar had conceded 39 runs as Ben Duckett and Ollie Pope put up a good partnership. He himself broke the stand in the 19th over by trapping Duckett in front. He followed it up with the big wicket of Joe Root, trapped LBW with another superb leg-break. Ollie Pope holed out trying a reverse sweep and Harry Brook fell attempting a loft as Abrar completed a five-wicket haul in the morning session. He became just the second Pakistan bowler after Wahab Riaz to take a five-for on his first day of Test cricket. The spinner added two more after lunch to take each of the first seven wickets before Zahid Mahmood broke any chance the leggie had to take all 10, taking the remaining three wickets. Abrar's dream debut came after a solid showing in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy for Sindh in 2022. The leg-spinner, whose variations have stood out so far in his career, took 43 wickets in the season, the most by any bowler, with five five-wicket hauls and a ten-for. The spinner added two more after lunch to take each of the first seven wickets before Zahid Mahmood broke any chance the leggie had to take all 10, taking the remaining three wickets.

India Aim To Avoid Bangladesh Whitewash In Last ODI

Injury-hit India go into the final match of their one-day international series against Bangladesh in Chittagong on Saturday staring at an unprecedented whitewash and without skipper Rohit Sharma. Bangladesh have already secured the series after winning the first two matches in Dhaka by one wicket and five runs respectively, but they have never defeated India in all three games of a series. Sharma fought a valiant fight with a broken thumb in Wednesday's second match, scoring 51 not out off 28 balls, but was unable to take his side home. Rohit has flown to Mumbai for specialist consultation and will miss the final ODI, the Board of Control for Cricket in India said in a statement on Friday. The BCCI said fast bowler Kuldeep Sen and Deepak Chahar were also unavailable for the match, with back and hamstring injuries respectively. Kuldeep has been diagnosed with a stress injury and is ruled out of the series. Fellow fast bowler Deepak Chahar sustained a left hamstring strain during the 2nd ODI and is also ruled out of the series, it said. Left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav was added to the India squad. Allrounder Washington Sundar said India were looking to improve. We look to play our best cricket, we have certain things to do, focus on the process and make sure we win the game and end the one-day series on a high, Sundar told reporters in Chittagong. Bangladesh are relishing the prospect of a historic success, after winning the ODIs 2-1 on their neighbour's last visit in 2015. This team has never beaten India 3-0. That's a massive goal for us, said fielding coach Shane McDermott. I know that after the series win, the boys have one eye on one more win in this ODI series. Sharma's absence could be a blessing for Bangladesh, he added. I think with him not playing we have much better chance. We saw his innings the other day, and we know he is such a high-quality player, he said. Also Read: Roston Chase Picks Up His All-Time XI, Includes 3 Indians Sharma has scored 738 runs at 61.50 against Bangladesh in 15 ODIs, with three centuries and as many half centuries.

West Indies Struggle After Head And Labuschagne Heroics For Australia

Australia took four wickets to leave the West Indies reeling Friday in the day-night second Test after Travis Head crunched 175 and Marnus Labuschagne became the second-fastest man to 3,000 Test runs behind Donald Bradman. At stumps in Adelaide on day two, the visitors were 102-4, still 409 runs behind after Australia declared their first innings at 511-7. Opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul remained defiant on 47 alongside nightwatchman Anderson Phillip on one. Skipper Steve Smith's declaration gave his bowlers just over a full session to inflict maximum damage with the pink ball under lights, which is usually the most treacherous time to bat in day-night Tests. And they grabbed the opportunity as the home side look to sweep the two-Test series after winning in Perth by 164 runs. Michael Neser, in the team for an injured Josh Hazlewood, bagged the key wicket of Perth century-maker Kraigg Brathwaite for 19, with wicketkeeper Alex Carey taking a regulation catch after the West Indies skipper got a feather-edge as he tried to defend. Neser found movement and removed Shamarh Brooks for eight in a mirror dismissal. Nathan Lyon then held a caught-and-bowled to send Jermaine Blackwood packing for three, making the veteran spinner the most successful bowler ever at Adelaide Oval with 57 wickets, surpassing Shane Warne's 56. Cameron Green capped a good day for the hosts by bowling Devon Thomas for 19. Head earlier made a sparkling career-high 175 before a brain fade with Green deprived him of a maiden double century. Green nudged to fine leg and was pushing for two, but then sent Head back. He dived for the crease, but fell just short. It was a waste and even more so with Green out for nine soon after. Alex Carey (41 not out) and Neser (18) consolidated ahead of the declaration 30 minutes before tea. Labuschagne compiled 163, to go with his 204 and 104 not out in the first Test, before the West Indies made their first breakthrough of the day, with wicketkeeper Joshua da Silva holding a catch off Thomas's bowling. It snapped a 297-run stand between Head and Labuschagne and ended another stylish performance from the left-hander. In the process, he passed 3,000 Test runs in his 51st innings, matching West Indies great Everton Weekes as the second-quickest to the milestone. But they were still considerably slower than Australian legend Bradman, who accomplished the feat in 33 innings. Australia resumed on 330-3 after dominating on Thursday. Labuschagne began on 120 and Head 114, with an injury-hit West Indies again faced with a flat pitch offering little help. Alzarri Joseph extracted some early bounce, but the Australians were largely untroubled with Head impressive, pouncing on anything short or wide. The West Indies bowling stocks were diminished with allrounder Kyle Mayers and pacemen Kemar Roach and Jayden Seales out injured. Adding to their woes, replacement Marquino Mindley again failed to bowl, having limped off after just two overs on his debut Thursday.

South Africa Batter Mignon Du Preez Announces Retirement From International Cricket

South Africa women's batter Mignon du Preez on Friday announced her retirement from all forms of international cricket, including T20Is after a career spanning almost 16 years in the green and gold jersey. Mignon, South Africa's most-capped female cricketer, made her last international appearance at the inaugural Women's Cricket T20 tournament at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in August. She previously retired from Tests and ODIs earlier in the year after taking part in the 2022 ODI World Cup in New Zealand. Fifteen years of international cricket, WOW, what a blessing it has beenIt's never an easy decision to step away from something you love as much as I love cricket, but I know in my heart that the time is right for me to announce my retirement from all forms of international cricket. However, I will continue to play the shorter format of the game in the global leagues until such a time that I am blessed to become a mom and start a family of my own. Now for all the thank yous... said Mignon in her retirement speech, where she expressed gratitude to the Almighty and her husband Tony. She broke into the T20I setup in August 2007, seven months after making her South Africa debut as a 17-year-old in ODIs. At the time of retirement, Mignon, 33, has played in 114 T20Is, scoring 1,805 runs at an average of 20.98, including seven half-centuries and a high score of 69 against Ireland at Solihull in 2014. A special thank you has to go to my dad for being my very first Mini-Cricket coach and for being the one who made me fall in love with this beautiful game. I am truly blessed with the best parents anyone could ever ask for. Thank you, mom and dad, for being such amazing role models and for always encouraging me to use my God-given talent. A special thank you has to go to Peter Harold and Curtly Diesel that invested hours into taking my game to the next level in the last couple of years. To Northerns Cricket Union, thank you for being my 'home base' since I was 10 years old and for naming a Gate in my honour at SuperSport Park, she added. In that period, Mignon has also represented South Africa in a staggering seven ICC Women's T20 World Cups since the inaugural edition in 2009. After being appointed the full-time national captain in 2011, the experienced batter donned captaincy duties on 50 occasions -- a record for South African women's cricket. To the fans, thank you for your ongoing support through the highs, but especially during the lows. You guys drive us to be better cricketers and to put on a show every time we step onto the field. To CSA, thank you for your continuous support, allowing me the opportunity to captain my country and for finally making women's cricket a viable career option in SA. To my teammates, thank you for all the memories that I can treasure for a lifetime. It was an honour to share the changing room and field with each one of you. I will miss you all tremendously but can't wait to follow your journeys to success and I will definitely be rooting for you from the sidelines in the future. I will definitely miss the change room chats, the off-field friendships from all around the globe, travelling and learning about different cultures. However, I am extremely excited about the next phase of my life together with the ones that I love dearly and that have taken a back seat during the last 15 years of my career, she elaborated. Mignon enjoyed her best season, statistically, in 2014 where she helped South Africa qualify for their first-ever T20 World Cup semifinal in Bangladesh. She ended that year with 369 runs from 20 matches, scoring at 24.60 with a strike rate of 91.56. She was also a member of the Proteas squad that secured a second T20 World Cup semifinal appearance in Australia in 2020 where they went down to the eventual champions via the Duckworth-Lewis and Stern (DLS) method. Mignon would lead South Africa into the 2022 ODI World Cup semifinal with a last-ball victory over India in the final league match before South Africa lost to future runners-up England in the semi-final. This is a bittersweet moment for South African cricket and the world at large as we bid farewell to one of the game's favourite characters on the international stage. Over the last 16 years, du Preez's professionalism and commitment shown towards her country have been exemplary, not only to those who follow in her footsteps but also to her teammates and peers in the game. Mignon would lead South Africa into the 2022 ODI World Cup semifinal with a last-ball victory over India in the final league match before South Africa lost to future runners-up England in the semi-final.

Abrar Ahmed Spins An Inescapable Web On Debut As Pakistan Bowl Out England For 281 Runs

Pakistan debutant Abrar Ahmed spun a spell over England Friday, grabbing seven wickets as the tourists were dismissed for 281 on the opening day of the second Test in Multan. The 24-year-old -- nicknamed Harry Potter by friends because he wears glasses similar to those of the fictional boy wizard -- produced magic of his own to finish with 7-114. It was the second-best debut by a Pakistan bowler behind pacer Mohammad Zahid's 7-66 against New Zealand in Rawalpindi in 1996. Ben Duckett (63) and Ollie Pope (60) were the main run scorers in an England innings that finished at the stroke of tea, after skipper Ben Stokes won the toss and decided to bat. England, on their first tour of Pakistan since 2005, lead the three-match series 1-0 after winning the first Test in Rawalpindi by 74 runs. Spinner Zahid Mahmood claimed the last three wickets to finish with 3-63. Ahmed had taken all five England wickets at lunch with the score at 180-5, becoming only the second man to take five before lunch on the opening day on debut. West Indian Alf Valentine achieved the feat against England at Manchester in his first Test in 1950. Stokes (30) and Will Jacks (31) defied the all-spin assault after lunch for a 61-run sixth-wicket stand before Ahmed befuddled the England skipper with his mastery. In the first session, Ahmed dismissed Zak Crawley (19), Duckett and Joe Root (eight), before sending Pope and Harry Brook (nine) on their way. He is the 13th Pakistan bowler to take five or more wickets in an innings on debut. Despite losing wickets regularly, England scored at a brisk pace, with Duckett knocking nine boundaries and a six, and Pope cracking five to the rope. Pakistan captain Babar Azam employed spin as early as in the ninth over, and Ahmed bowled Crawley with a sharp incoming delivery with only his fifth Test ball. He then trapped Duckett and Root leg-before -- both given out only after Azam reviewed the on-field calls.

Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne Shine With The Bat; Australia Declare First Innings At 511/7 Against West Indies

Travis Head crunched 175 after Marnus Labuschagne became the second-fastest man to 3,000 Test runs behind only Donald Bradman on Friday as Australia put the West Indies to the sword in the day-night second Test. At tea in Adelaide on day two, the visitors were 14 without loss after Australia declared their first innings at 511-7 soon before the break. Kraigg Brathwaite and Tagenarine Chanderpaul were both on seven. Australian skipper Steve Smith's decision gave his bowlers just over a full session to inflict maximum damage with the new pink ball under lights, which is usually the most treacherous time to bat in day-night Tests. Head make a sparkling 175, his highest Test score, before a brain fade with Cameron Green ended his impressive 219-ball knock, depriving him of a maiden double century. Green had nudged to fine leg and was pushing for two, but then sent Head back. He dived for the crease, but fell just short. It was a huge waste and even more so with Green, who never looked comfortable, out for nine soon after, dragging an Alzarri Joseph delivery onto his stumps. Alex Carey (41 not out) and Michael Neser (18) came together and consolidated before the declaration 30 minutes before tea. Labuschagne made 163, to go with his 204 and 104 not out in the first Test, before the West Indies made their first breakthrough of the day ahead of dinner, with wicketkeeper Joshua da Silva holding a catch off Devon Thomas's bowling. It snapped a 297-run stand between Head and Labuschagne and ended another stylish performance from the left-hander. In the process, he passed 3,000 Test runs in his 51st innings, matching West Indies great Everton Weekes as the second-quickest to the milestone. But they were still considerably slower than Australian legend Bradman, who accomplished the feat in 33 innings. Australia resumed day two on 330-3 after dominating on Thursday, when David Warner (21), Usman Khawaja (62) and skipper Steve Smith (0) were the only wickets to fall.

India vs Australia, 1st T20I IND-W vs AUS-W Cricket Match Preview, Prediction, Where To Watch, Probable XI And Fantasy XI Tips

Commonwealth Games silver medallist team India are all set to host T20 World Champions Australia women's team for a 5-match T20I series at home. IND-W vs AUS-W 1st T20I: Match Preview: Team India are on a good roll in T20Is this year, with 13 wins in 20 games. This included an Asia Cup title and a silver medal at Commonwealth Games. Indian Women's team would look to finish the year off on a high with a win against World Champions Australia. However, the Alyssa Healy-led side is a much tougher competition as compared to teams who participated in the Asia Cup. Australia has a strong lineup and have an impressive record against India (6-1). It will also be a challenge for Hrishikesh Kanitkar, who recently took over as the batting coach while Ramesh Powar was shifted to NCA to work with the Men's team. Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues and Shafali Verma have been shouldering the batting for team India this year and are the top three run-getters this year for the team. The batting will revolve around these three along with captain Harmanpreet Kaur. However, apart from Harmanpreet and Jemimah, all the other batters have struggled against the Australian team. In bowling, Renuka Singh, Rajeshwari Gayakwad and Deepti Sharma have picked up 17 wickets combined against Australia since 2021 and will head the bowling department against World Champions. Richa Ghosh and Shafali Verma would also look to kick off their U19 T20 World Cup preparations, which is scheduled to be played next month. While Australia's regular captain Meg Lanning has taken an indefinite break from cricket, Alyssa Healy will be leading the Australian side in the 5-match T20I series against India. Tahlia McGrath (289 runs) and Beth Mooney (244 runs) have been the top scorers for Australia this year in T20Is and would shoulder the batting along with Ellyse Perry and Healy. Healy had an off-season in the T20Is recently with only 78 runs in 9 innings, but her good run in WBBL would give provide her with some confidence. Alana King has been the lead wicket-taker for Australia this year and is expected to enjoy bowling in the Indian conditions and should favour her leg-spinning attribute. Jess Jonassen, Tahlia McGrath and Megan Schutt would be the key bowlers for the Australian team against India women's team.

Cricket Australia Blasted For 'Losing Control' Of David Warner Saga

Australian Cricketers' Association chief Todd Greenberg said on Friday that David Warner was left with no choice but to ditch his leadership ban appeal, and that Cricket Australia had lost control. Warner this week withdrew his bid to overturn a lifetime captaincy sanction imposed after the infamous ball-tampering scandal of 2018, furious that an independent review panel wanted to make it public. The batsman said he was concerned for the well-being of his family and the Australian team should they have to relive those traumatic times in the media glare. Greenberg said it should never have got to this point. The moment Cricket Australia outsourced the review, in my view, they lost control of that process, he told SEN sports radio. Why the panel decided the issue needed to be a public hearing after both CA and David agreed the matter be held privately is beyond me, and I think lacks a real level of common sense. The process became a long way removed from the one David agreed to participate in, that's why I don't think David had much choice to do what he did. Greenberg added that the ACA were unbelievably frustrated. Not just for David, for his teammates who I know are really annoyed around this process that was allowed to drag into the middle of the Test summer. Warner was cast as the key villain in the so-called 'Sandpaper-gate' scandal during a Cape Town Test, having conspired with then-skipper Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft to illegally alter the surface of the ball. He was suspended from playing for a year and banned from any leadership role for life. Adding fuel to the fire, Warner's manager James Erskine on Thursday told the same broadcaster it was naive to think more people did not know what was going on. He also claimed the players were given permission to ball-tamper by two unnamed executives some 16 months before the Cape Town incident.

David Warner: ACA CEO Todd Greenberg slams handling of captaincy saga

ADELAIDE: Todd Greenberg, chief executive of the Australian Cricketers Association (ACA), slammed Cricket Australia for losing control of the situation and asserts that the Test team is dissatisfied with how David Warner's leadership ban has been handled. The Adelaide Test has been marred by Warner's decision to drop his request for a review of the decision to relieve his suspension and the outrage over an independent panel's demand that his appeal is heard in public. Greenberg said, the 35-year-old Test opener was forced to withdraw his pitch out of concern for the welfare of both his family and the Australian team. He also expressed the union's view that there was no longer any chance to rescue the situation because the single sanction left over from the 2018 ball-tampering scandal had been eliminated. Given that both Cricket Australia and Warner had anticipated the process to be played out in secret, Greenberg claims he was perplexed as to how it had come to this. However, he claimed that in addition to Warner, the other players and Australian cricket were the biggest losers, with Warner's teammates feeling the same way. Greenberg told SEN that to say they were unbelievably frustrated would be an understatement. That was the main feeling I experienced. Not just for David and his family, but for all of us, we are very frustrated. But I also know that his teammates are quite frustrated with the way this process has been allowed to linger into the summer of tests. After Warner's manager James Erskine made the stunning assertion on Thursday that players had been given permission to tamper with the ball as early as 2016, Greenberg said any retracing of the events leading up to the Cape Town incident would not be helpful. After the union initially made a pitch to have the restriction lifted in February, the ACA chief labelled the entire procedure as complicated and said there was no justification for the hearing to be held with reporters present.

Kuldeep Yadav Added To India Squad For Third ODI Against Bangladesh; Rahul To Captain In Rohit's Absence

Chattogram, Dec 9, Left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav on Friday has been added to India's squad for the third and final ODI against Bangladesh, with KL Rahul to captain the side in Rohit Sharma's absence, said the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Yadav was initially named in India's Test squad for the two-match series against Bangladesh, starting from December 14. But with fast-bowlers Kuldeep Sen and Deepak Chahar ruled out due to injuries, he had to be called up for the third and final ODI against Bangladesh. Yadav had been in India's squad on tour of New Zealand, but did not get any match to play. He last played in an ODI against South Africa at New Delhi on October 11, picking 4/18 and got the Player of the Match award for playing a pivotal role in a 2-1 series victory for the hosts. Rohit had suffered a blow to his left thumb in the second over while fielding in the 2nd ODI at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Wednesday. The BCCI medical team assessed him, and he underwent x-ray scans at a local hospital in Dhaka. He was attempting to take a catch at second slip of Anamul Haque off pacer Mohammed Siraj, where the ball dipped on him and hit his thumb. Immediately he went off the field, and came out to bat at number nine, hitting an unbeaten 51 off 28 balls, laced with three fours and five sixes, in a courageous effort which went in vain as India fell short by five runs to lose the series. BCCI has said that Rohit has now flown back home to Mumbai for specialist consultation and will miss the final ODI. BCCI added that a call on his availability for the upcoming two-match Test series against Bangladesh will be taken later. In the post-match presentation ceremony of 2nd ODI, Rohit admitted his thumb isn't in good condition, but conceded that too many injury concerns in the Indian team were not ideal. Honestly, the thumb is not too great. Some dislocation on the finger, but not a fracture, which is why I could come and bat. There are a few injury concerns and we need to get to the bottom of it. Need to try and monitor them, because it's important to understand this. Maybe they're playing too much cricket. When they come to play for India, they need to be at more than 100 percent. It's something we have to sit down with our team at NCA and try and monitor their workload. Can't afford to have half-fit players representing India. Sen complained of stiffness in his back after picking two wickets in his international debut during the first ODI against Bangladesh on Sunday. The BCCI medical team assessed him, and he was advised rest from the 2nd ODI. BCCI has now said that Sen has been diagnosed with a stress injury and is ruled out of the series. Chahar, on the other hand, sustained a left hamstring strain during the 2nd ODI and is also ruled out of the series. Both players will now report to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) for further management of their injuries. With Bangladesh having an unassailable 2-0 lead, India will be aiming to sign off from the series on a high in the third and final ODI set to happen at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium (ZACS) in Chattogram on Saturday. BCCI has now said that Sen has been diagnosed with a stress injury and is ruled out of the series. Chahar, on the other hand, sustained a left hamstring strain during the 2nd ODI and is also ruled out of the series. Both players will now report to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) for further management of their injuries.

David Warner's Team-mates Really Annoyed About Handling Of Leadership Review: ACA CEO

Todd Greenberg, the chief executive officer of the Australian Cricketers' Association (ACA), has claimed that David Warner's team-mates have been left very annoyed by the handling of his review into the leadership ban, and slammed Cricket Australia (CA) for losing control of the process. On Wednesday, an angry Warner had withdrawn his application for removing lifetime leadership ban, saying that the independent review panel wanted to make it a public lynching. Since then, CA has come under huge criticism for their handling of the issue. It would be a fair understatement for me to say we are unbelievably frustrated. That is the overarching emotion I felt. We are very frustrated, not just for David (Warner) and his family. But also his teammates who I know are really annoyed about this process, that it has been allowed to drag into the Test summer, said Greenberg to SEN Radio. Greenberg explained that having a public hearing of overturning Warner's leadership ban was one of the big issues, where many had expected that it would be heard in private. The moment Cricket Australia outsourced the review, in my view, they lost control of that process. I appreciate there are complexities in the codes of conduct and I understand there is a level of detail, but it is fact that once it was outsourced, the process was lost control. The code of conduct amendments that had been introduced by CA were that the review would be conducted privately unless there was very good reason for it not to be. There's nothing remarkable about that at all, it's how every code of conduct hearings has been conducted from the very beginning. So why the panel decided the issue needed to be a public hearing after both CA and David (Warner) agreed the matter be held privately is beyond me, and I think lacks a real level of common sense. Greenberg pointed out that when the process of hearing the overturning leadership ban changed, Warner had no other option, but to let go of his pursuit of lifting the ban imposed on him since the Sandpaper gate in 2018. The code of conduct amendments were designed for the review application not to be an appeal of the original offence, it was certainly nothing like that, it was to be a forward-looking process about remorse and rehabilitation. The process became a long way removed from the one David agreed to participate in, that's why I don't think David had much choice to do what he did. Greenberg pointed out that when the process of hearing the overturning leadership ban changed, Warner had no other option, but to let go of his pursuit of lifting the ban imposed on him since the Sandpaper gate in 2018.
