Sohail Tanvir's disguised pace variations and the mistiming he creates from a wrong-footed action made him a sought-after purchase around the world and his 350-plus wickets speak to his value to the teams he represents.

Playing for the Rajasthan Royals on May 4, 2011, Tanvir took a match-winning six wickets against the Chennai Super Kings at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur. He ended the tournament as the highest wicket-taker, with 22 wickets from 11 matches at an average of 12.09, an economy rate of 6.46 and a strike rate of 11.20, the best among bowlers with more than six wickets.

In the final of the tournament, on June 1, at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai, with Rajasthan chasing 164 to win, Tanvir added 21 runs along with Captain Shane Warne. He hit the winning runs off the final ball of the innings, to see the Royals home.

He was later presented with the "Purple Cap", an award for the leading wicket-taker of the tournament.

In February 2012, Tanvir featured in the inaugural Bangladesh Premier League tournament representing Sylhet Royals. He took 13 wickets and scored 78 runs in the tournament.

  • Rabada does damage again after Shaw half-century as Capitals go top Rabada does damage again after Shaw half-century as Capitals go top

    Kagiso Rabada starred once again after Prithvi Shaw blasted a blistering half-century as Delhi Capitals beat Chennai Super Kings by 44 runs to go top of the Indian Premier League.

    Rabada took two wickets for as many runs in a Super Over to set up a victory over Kings XI Punjab in the Capitals' first game of the tournament last Sunday.

    The South Africa paceman was outstanding once again at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Friday, taking 3-26 to restrict Chennai to 131-7 in reply to 175-3.

    Shaw earlier smashed 64 off 43 balls, while Shikhar Dhawan (35) and Rishabh Pant (37 not out) also chipped in to get Delhi every chance of making it two wins out of two.

    Opener Shaw and Dhawan put on 94 for the first wicket off just 10.4 overs, but Piyush Chawla (2-33) and Sam Curran (1-27) helped to keep the Capitals under the 200 mark they looked set to reach.

    The Super Kings never looked like reaching their target, Faf du Plessis top scoring with 43 before he was removed by Rabada, who also got rid of MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja in the final over.

    Rabada's compatriot Anrich Nortje took 2-21 from a brilliant four overs for CSK, who have now lost two out of three, as the Capitals moved to the summit. 

    UNWANTED RECORD FOR JADEJA, SHAW CUTS LOOSE

    Shaw and Dhawan laid the platform for Delhi's comfortable victory with an entertaining opening stand.

    It was no fun for Jadeja, who saw Dhawan clatter his first ball for six over midwicket and Shaw sweep him over the ropes in a second over that went for 15.

    Jadeja's four overs cost 44 runs and he failed to take a wicket, becoming the first spinner to concede at least 40 runs in three successive IPL matches.

    Shaw was named man of the match, having hit nine fours as well as that big six in masterful knock before Dhoni stumped him off Chawla in the 13th over.

     

    LANDMARK FOR DU PLESSIS AS SOUTH AFRICANS TAKE CENTRE STAGE

    Du Plessis reached the 2,000 IPL runs landmark but he was never going to be celebrating with a victory.

    His fellow South Africans Rabada and Nortje did the bulk of the damage in the run chase, bowling 23 dot balls between them and taking key wickets.

    Axar Patel also set the tone, with his four overs costing only 18 runs and he also took the wicket of Shane Watson.

  • CWI lauds Stafanie Taylor on landmark achievement of 3000 T20 runs CWI lauds Stafanie Taylor on landmark achievement of 3000 T20 runs

    Cricket West Indies (CWI) has congratulated Stafanie Taylor on becoming the first West Indies women’s player to score 3,000 runs in T20 Internationals.

    Stafanie Taylor scored her 3000th run on Wednesday but West Indies Women lost to England by 47 runs at Derby on Wednesday in the second of their five-match T20 Vitality Series.

    They also lost the first match on Monday by a similar margin. However, this time the loss unfolded differently.

    Chasing 152 for victory, the West Indies Women, with the score at 11, lost Hayley Matthews for three in the third over, caught off a leading edge by Heather Knight from a Katherine Brunt delivery.

    However, the West Indies had a glimmer of hope when Deandra Dottin and Stafanie Taylor put together a partnership of 61 in nine overs to have the West Indies well-positioned at 71 for one in the 12th over.

    That was also when things began to unravel for the West Indies as their next seven wickets to 32 runs to close at 104 for eight.

    It began with the last ball of the 12th over when Dottin adjudged leg before wicket for 38 to Sarah Glenn’s quicker and fuller leg-break.

    Six balls later, wicketkeeper Amy Jones, stumped Lee-Ann Kirby for one from a Mady Villiers delivery. 75 for three.

    Six balls later, Jones was again in action, stumping Captain Stafanie Taylor - who had earlier scored her 3000th run - for 28 from a Glen delivery wide of the off-stump. 79 for four.

    Shermaine Campbelle was the next wicket to fall, for five, after swinging Anya Shrubsole’s delivery to deep square leg where Fran Wilson held onto a running catch. It was then 89 for five.

    Six balls later, Chinelle Henry was out lbw to Villiers for seven. 89 for six.

    By the time Sophie Ecclestone bowled Britney Cooper for a duck to leave the West Indies were 91 for seven, the Caribbean side had lost six wickets for 19 runs from 33 balls and still needing 61 from the last 16 balls.

    Shortly thereafter, Aaliyah Alleyne was trapped lbw by Ecclestone for five at 96 for eight.

    It was left to Selman, who remained unbeaten on 6 and Afy Fletcher 4, to get the West Indies past the 100-run mark as the innings came to a close.

    Villiers was the pick of the England bowlers taking 2 for 10 from three overs. Ecclestone (2 for 19) and Glenn (2 for 24) did their part to dismantling the West Indies batting line-up.

    Earlier, England had smashed 52 runs off their last five overs to wrest control of the match from the West Indies, who had up to then, kept England’s batters reined in.

    Having had England at 96 for six in the 15th over, Sarah Glen and Katherine Brunt attacked the bowling with great success. Together the pair added 46 runs before Selman bowled Brunt for 18 in the final over.

    England had already taken full advantage of Shamilia Connell, whose last over, the 19th, went for 19 runs. Glenn slapped her for four over deep backward point and then followed up with a shot over the covers for three.

    Brunt followed suit the next ball that yielded two runs. She then smashed the flustered Connell out to the deep extra cover boundary for four.

    By the time Glen was run out for 26 off the last ball of the innings, the damage had already been done with England once again getting beyond 150 runs that once again proved to be more than enough.

    It was a welcome fightback from England, who after 15 overs didn’t look likely to score 150.

    As they did in the first match on Monday, England had a good start scoring 34 from the first four overs before Selman had Tammy Beaumont caught by Chinelle Henry for 21.

    At 44 for one Danni Wyatt was run out for 14.

    By then Stafanie Taylor (2 for 12) and Selman (2 for 32) had begun to squeeze the life out of the England batting.

    However, Jones who scored 25 from just 20 balls sparked England’s revival that ultimately proved to be too much for the West Indies.
