Mumbai march on with win over Daredevils

first_imgMITCHELL McClenaghan and Jasprit Bumrah starred with the ball as Mumbai Indians stretched their winning run to six Indian Premier League matches with a 14-run triumph over Delhi Daredevils to go four points clear.McClenaghan has played a key role in Mumbai’s outstanding start to the IPL season and the left-arm quick took 3-24 at the Wankhede Stadium as Delhi could only muster 128-7 in reply to 142-8.Pat Cummins and Amit Mishra took two wickets apiece in an Indians innings that never really got going, with Jos Buttler’s 28 the highest score for the leaders.But McClenaghan claimed three wickets in his first two overs as the Daredevils were reduced to an embarrassing 24-6 and Bumrah took 2-21 after debutant Kagiso Rabada and South Africa team-mate Chris Morris combined for a 91-run stand to give the visitors hope of pulling off an unlikely win.Buttler was dropped by Rishabh Pant on 11 and took advantage of that life by smashing Rabada for six into the leg side, but the Proteas paceman had his first IPL wicket when he cleaned Parthiv Patel with the last ball of that over.Sanju Samson ran the dangerous Buttler out with an underarm throw and Nitish Rana pulled Cummins (2-20) straight to Corey Anderson at midwicket.The leaders continued to lose wickets at regular intervals and were 120-6 when Cummins saw the back of the clean-hitting Kieron Pollard (26 off 29). Hardik Pandya (24 from 23) was run out in the final over of what was an impressive display in the field from Delhi.Zaheer Khan’s side made a horrendous start to their run chase, though, as Pandya ran Aditya Tare out in the first over and they were five down for just 21 when McClenaghan trapped New Zealand team-mate Anderson in front without scoring.Rabada was recruited for his hostile fast bowling, but he made an impressive 44 from only 39 balls and Morris scored an unbeaten 52 off 41 deliveries to give Delhi a sniff, only for Bumrah and McClenaghan to put the squeeze on at the death.(Omnisport)last_img read more

Joshua Focuses Ahead of World Title Bout

first_imgAnthony Joshua is unconcerned by popularity and says winning is all that is required to maintain public interest.The Londoner won Olympic gold in 2012 and has enjoyed a direct and speedy journey to today’s world title clash with IBF champion Charles Martin at The O2 – live on Sky Sports Box Office. In his previous bout – a seventh-round knockout defeat of long-time rival Dillian Whyte at the same venue – Joshua appeared to land a blow on his opponent after the bell.But Joshua told Behind The Ropes: “This isn’t golf. It’s the fight game, the hurt business. You fight until you’re pulled off your opponent. That’s what I’d tell any fighter in my gym.“You don’t fight and listen for the bell. That’s why people get punched after the bell. As a fighter, let’s not forget what you’re in it for. You’re a gladiator, a warrior and you fight until you’re pulled apart. That’s where I’m coming from.“We keep rocking and rolling until we’re pulled apart and may the best man win. Someone has to go. I enjoy it. I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t. Boxing to me is fun and helps me to develop me as a man.“Nobody forces me to do it. I found it myself. I built it myself. I train by myself. It’s all me. I just enjoy it and I like the people I’m around. From a young age, when I was 18, boxing became my life. Without it I don’t think I’ll have much fun.“This is not a popularity contest. This is fighting. I’ve got to win. As long as I’m winning, people are going to keep on watching. I leave the popularity thing down to the PR people. You’ve got to have the focused mentality.”With Joshua wowing the British public with his ferocious run of knockouts to date, the 26-year-old is delighted at the prospect of home advantage when he takes on the American.He added: “I’m not in a rush to be travelling the world. Charles Martin coming over here is class. There are big stadiums here and an unbelievable fanbase so I don’t see why we have to go overseas to fight. I think it’s unbelievable he wants to come here and fight me so I’ll enjoy it while it lasts.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
