India vs England: Broad ready for challenging and exciting Test series

first_imgEngland pacer Stuart Broad has said India have some world-class players in their side and the upcoming five-match Test series will be an exciting one. The much-talked about Test series will start at Edgbaston from August 1.”India are a stand out side in world cricket and they have got some wonderful players, who have adjusted to conditions to all around world,” Broad was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo.Broad said the team that adapts to the conditions quickly will come out on top.”It’s going to be a hard-fought series. What I really enjoy is a five-Test series. Generally, your best players win you five-match series. Let’s hope, we come out on top. It is nice to have longevity to the series. Generally, the team that adapts and plays best cricket has longevity through the series will win it,” Broad said.England 2014 to England 2018: India make big strides in Test cricketBroad also said even the ground staff won’t be able to predict how the 22-yard strip would behave during the first Test.”It will be a really exciting series as both teams don’t know what the pitch will do neither the groundsmen really know because probably they haven’t experienced this sort of weather in England for a long time. The lack of moisture that has been around, players will have to adapt,” he said.Zaheer Khan backs India to dominate England in Test seriesFor Broad, every ground from Trent Bridge (Nottingham) to the Lord’s will pose different challenges, and the bowling unit that adapts quickly will have the upper hand.advertisement”The bowling side that can quickly adapt will have more success. (Need to) realize what’s the threat. Is it spin, reverse swing, or knee roll seam? We will be discussing all the way through.”Each ground will be different. Trent Bridge might be very different to Lord’s. Lord’s (track) traditionally in last couple of years have spun quite a lot. Bowlers like Yasir Shah, Moeen Ali have got 10-fors. At Trent Bridge, it doesn’t turn that much. So we need to use different skills for different grounds for sure,” said the 32-year-old, who has 417 wickets from 117 Tests.Dinesh Karthik nervous yet excited ahead of 1st Test in England after 11 yearsBroad however refused to predict as to how the series will pan out.”It’s impossible to tell how the series will go. If the pitches are spin-friendly, the spinners will take a lot of workload. Seam bowlers would not have many overs through them but that will be a wrong mind set to go in thinking that ‘I would just want to play five Test matches’. You want to go in there fit and firing in each and every Test match every time,” said Broad.After the first Test at Edgbaston, India and England will play Test matches at Lord’s (August 9 to August 13), Trent Bridge (August 18 to August 22), The Rose Bowl (August 30 to September 3) and Kennington Oval (September 7 to September 11).(With inputs from PTI)last_img read more

Report: ESPN To Buy Second Half Of Big Ten’s Media Rights For $190 Million Per Year

first_imgBig Ten logo.Twitter/@bigtenAfter FOX agreed to buy up half of the Big Ten’s available media rights for a reported $240 million per year, many speculated that a Big Ten/ESPN divorce could be on the horizon. FOX’s move does mean big changes for the conference, but ESPN will still have a major Big Ten presence. According to a report by Sports Business Daily, ESPN is set to buy the other half of the Big Ten’s package for $190 million per year over the next six years.ESPN will buy the second half of the Big Ten’s media rights package, ending months of speculation that the two were about to sever their 50-year relationship.ESPN will pay an average of $190 million per year over six years for essentially half the conference’s media rights package, according to several sources close to the talks. Two months ago, Fox Sports agreed to take the other half of the package for an average of $240 million per year. CBS Sports also has told the conference that it will renew its basketball-only package for $10 million per year.FOX will air the Big Ten Championship Game, and gets first choice for games, meaning that college football fans will be flipping to the network, and not ESPN, to watch Michigan vs. Ohio State in the future.FOX gets a game selection advantage over ESPN in that reported deal. So Michigan-Ohio State is probably moving to FOX for a while.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) June 20, 2016With the combination of FOX and ESPN’s deals, the Big Ten is set to pull in $2.64 billion for its media package. On the field, you can have a very healthy debate over which conference reigns supreme, but in the bank accounts, it is hard to argue against what the Big Ten has pulled off this off-season.[Sports Business Daily]MORE FROM COLLEGE SPUN:The 10 Most Aggressive Fan Bases In CFBIn Photos: Golfer Paige SpiranacESPN Makes Decision On Dick Vitalelast_img read more

Ohio State mens hockey wins home finale against No 15 Golden Gophers

Sophomore goalie Christian Frey skates near his goal during a game against Minnesota at the Schottenstein Center on March 6. OSU lost, 4-2. Credit: Alexis Soares / Lantern photographerIn the final home game of their collegiate careers, OSU’s eight seniors were the stars on the ice one last time.The senior class helped lead the team to a 5-2 victory over the No. 15 Golden Gophers on Saturday.“Led by our seniors, no question,” coach Steve Rohlik said. “We talked a lot about it today and in video session, you can’t script a book any better than what happened tonight, but again, you’re led by eight pretty quality young men. But I credit the team because it takes all 27 guys to get it done, and all 27 guys jumped on board and everybody wanted to do it for the seniors, but more importantly for the program.”Sophomore forward Nick Schilkey’s backhander off a rebound from senior forward Darik Angeli put the Buckeyes in a 1-0 lead.The Gophers notched two tallies in the second period, but senior forward Matt Johnson tied the score at 2-2. OSU then added three goals in the third to take the win.This weekend proved to be a big one for junior defenseman Craig Dalrymple as he scored his first two goals of the season in back-to-back nights against the Gophers.“Two goals in two games, it’s pretty special,” Dalrymple said.OSU’s defense held the game for the Buckeyes by not allowing one of the best power-play units in college hockey to score on its four power-play chances.“That’s a scary team on the power play when you’re clicking at the right percent. They have so many weapons,” Rohlik said. “I think our guys decided it just doesn’t matter, you have to go out and kill a penalty and our guys just jumped the boards and got the job done.”After Minnesota coach Don Lucia decided to pull his goalie late in the final period Saturday to allow the Gophers to add an extra attacker, the Buckeyes took advantage.Led by the stick skills of senior forward Tanner Fritz, the Buckeyes scored twice on an empty net. Fritz assisted junior forward Anthony Greco on the first, and scored the second himself, marking his last home goal as a Buckeye.“I think the hockey gods were shining down on me a little, but definitely nice to go out that way,” Fritz said.Fritz, who leads the Buckeyes with 26 points and has had a point in each of his last six games, said this win was one to remember.“It’s an awesome feeling, something that I’ll remember and cherish down the road. I can look back on this and be proud of what I’ve done,” Fritz said.But the Buckeye captain’s hockey career isn’t over yet, as OSU is set to travel to Madison, Wis., to take on the Wisconsin Badgers in its final series of the regular season.“We enjoy this win. We played a very good hockey team,” Rohlik said. “We are going into their senior weekend and we have to become a better team starting on Monday and that’s our focus. If we can continue to do that, hopefully we can cause some success.”Puck drop in Madison is set for 8 p.m. on Friday and 7 p.m. on Saturday. read more
