West Indies U19s lost by one wicket today and went 0-2 down to England U19 in their five-match Youth ODI series at Beckenham.

The West Indies won the toss and elected to bat and made 180-9 in 39.3 overs.

Notwithstanding, Matthew Nandu retiring hurt for four, the young West Indies side got off to a good start with an opening stand of 64 inside 12 overs before Anderson Amurdan was bowled by Fateh Singh for 27.

Teddy Bishop, who replaced Nandu, made an unbeaten 97 while carrying his bat throughout the remainder of the innings even as his side collapsed around him.

He and Captain Akeem Auguste had added 22 for the second wicket when the latter was bowled by Matthew Prest for 6, triggering a capitulation that saw the West Indies lose their last seven wickets for 94 runs.

It would have been worse had it not been for a 54-run seventh-wicket partnership between Bishop and Isai Thorne, who was the only other batsman to make double figures, with 11.

Prest (3-36), Jacob Bethell (3-29) and Sonny Baker (2-19) were the destroyers as the West Indies failed to bat their allotment of 50 overs.

In reply, England lost wickets early and were 26-2 with openers Prest and William Luxton in the hutch for 11 and 0, respectively. Bethell and James Rew put on 53 for the third wicket before the former was dismissed by Onaje Armory for 20.

Rew was the anchor for the England middle order as the home side got to 155 for 5 inside 29 overs, only 26 runs from their target. However, once he was run out for 63, things swung the West Indies way as England slipped to 162 for 9 by over 35.

However, Singh, who was unbeaten on 12 and Nathan Bramwell on three, took England over the line.

Thorne was the best of the West Indies bowlers with 3-54 while Armory ended with 2-42 and Anderson Mahase 2-34.

    Dwayne Bravo and Ruturaj Gaikwad starred as Chennai Super Kings returned to the top of the Indian Premier League with a six-wicket defeat of Royal Challengers Bangalore.

    RCB slumped to a nine-wicket loss at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders after they were bowled out for only 92 on Monday in their first game since the tournament resumed.

    They looked set to post an imposing total at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Friday after Devdutt Padikkal (70 off 50 balls) and captain Virat Kohli (53 from 41) put on 111 for the first wicket, but could only finish with 156-6.

    Bravo (3-24) and Shardul Thakur (2-29) put the brakes on as Kohli's third-placed side lost their way after the start had been delayed due to a sandstorm.

    An opening stand of 71 from 8.2 overs between the in-form Gaikwad (38 off 26) and Faf du Plessis (31 from 26) set CSK on their way to a seventh win in nine matches.

    Ambati Rayudu (32) and Moeen Ali (23) also chipped in before vastly experienced duo Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni got the Super Kings home with 11 balls to spare, moving them above Delhi Capitals on net run-rate.

     

    OPENERS LAY RCB FOUNDATIONS

    The dangerous Padikkal and Kohli got RCB off to a great start after they were put in by MS Dhoni, taking 55 off the powerplay.

    Padikkal was the first to raise his bat, bringing up his sixth IPL half-century by dispatching Deepak Chahar for four, and Kohli struck Ravindra Jadeja to the boundary to reach his fifty soon after.

    RCB lost their way after Kohli was removed by Bravo in the 14th over, with Padikkal - who struck three sixes - falling straight after Shardul Thakur got rid of AB de Villiers in the South Africa legend's 150th match for just 12.

     

    GAIKWAD IN GREAT NICK

    Gaikwad made a brilliant unbeaten 88 in CSK's victory over defending champions Mumbai Indians and the opener maintained his form five days later.

    The 24-year-old and Du Plessis got the Super Kings ahead of the rate in a great start to the run chase, the South Africa batsman clearing the ropes twice and Gaikwad hitting one six.

    Both batsman fell in consecutive overs, but CSK kept wickets in hand and stayed ahead of the rate, with Raina and Dhoni finished off the job.

  • Sherfane Rutherford returns from IPL following death of his father Sherfane Rutherford returns from IPL following death of his father

    In-form T20 batsman Sherfane Rutherford has returned home to his native Guyana from the IPL following the death of his father, the Sunrisers Hyderabad Indian Premier League franchise announced on Thursday.

    Orin Rutherford, 58, died Thursday, after testing positive for the Covid-19 virus on September 5. He was being treated at the Intensive Care Unit of the Infectious Diseases Hospital in Liliendaal Hospital in Georgetown. He was reportedly unvaccinated.

    "The SRH family conveys its heartfelt condolences to Sherfane Rutherford and his family on the passing away of his father. Sherfane will be leaving the IPL bio-bubble to be with his family in this difficult hour," SRH posted on Twitter.

    Following a successful season with newly-crowned Caribbean Premier League champions St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, Rutherford was looking forward to his maiden season with SRH.

    It always feels good to come to a new franchise. It’s always good coming to something new. I look to learn, gather as much information as I can to work on my game and in the best way I can to help the team,” he said shortly after his arrival in India.

    Rutherford, who almost inexplicably missed on being selected to represent the West Indies at next month’s ICC T20 World Cup, was called up by SRH to replace England’s Jonny Bairstow.

    He last played in the IPL for Delhi Capitals in 2019.
