Cricket News Virat Kohli overtakes this West Indies legend during Napier ODI against New Zealand

first_imgVirat Kohli overtook Brian lara’s tally of ODI runs.India beat New Zealand by eight wickets in Napier.Kohli is third in the all-time list of international centuries. New Delhi: Virat Kohli continued to break records just for fun as he achieved another special milestone during India’s win in the Napier ODI against New Zealand which they won by eight wickets. Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan (75*) shared a brilliant 91-run stand and it complimented the efforts of Kuldeep Yadav (4/39) and Mohammed Shami (3/19) as India dominated New Zealand in all departments. While Dhawan notched up a fifty after nine innings, Kohli continued his sublime run-making form. After starting off cautiously following Rohit Sharma’s wicket and a bizarre break due to sunshine shining directly at the batsmen, Kohli opened up with a couple of brilliant boundaries off Lockie Ferguson.In the 16th over bowled by left-arm orthodox bowler Mitchell Santner, Kohli blasted a drive past extra cover to reach 23. With that boundary, Kohli went past West Indies legend Brian Lara’s ODI tally of 10405 runs. Kohli made smooth progress and he managed to overturn an LBW decision on review. The Indian captain looked good for his 49th fifty but he top-edged a short ball from Ferguson to perish for 45. highlights While Lara took 299 games to reach 10405 runs, Kohli has crossed this mark in just 220 games. Out of all the batsmen who have gone past 10000 runs, only Kohli and MS Dhoni have an average in excess of 50. Kohli’s strike-rate of 92 is the best among all batsmen, with Sri Lanka dasher Sanath Jayasuriya striking at 91. Sachin Tendulkar leads the tally with 18426 runs from 463 ODIs followed by Sri Lanka legend Kumar Sangakkara who hit 14234 runs in 404 ODIs.Kohli has amassed plenty of records in ODIs. He is second in the all-time tally of ODI centuries, with 39 tons. He already has 64 international tons, which is the third-most behind Tendulkar and former Australia skipper Ricky Ponting. During his last century against Australia in Adelaide, Kohli affirmed himself as the chase master in ODIs again. This was his 24th in a chase and India have lost just three times, once to Australia in Canberra, against New Zealand in Napier in 2014 and recently against West Indies in Pune.

Roberson turns in up and down performance following injury in Syracuse loss

first_imgWith cotton in his nose to stop the bleeding and stitches above his left eye — which at times seemed nearly closed — Tyler Roberson resembled a boxer more so than a basketball player.Due to Roberson’s injury, which he suffered 10 minutes into the game, he played a little less than he usually does. Yet he still came away with a hard-fought nine points and seven rebounds in addition to his battle scars in Syracuse’s (17-10, 7-7) 65-61 loss to Pittsburgh (18-10, 7-7 Atlantic Coast) on Saturday in the Carrier Dome.Roberson wasn’t too sure about how it happened, but he believed a Panther’s elbow — SU guard Ron Patterson said it was Pittsburgh forward Michael Young’s — caught him over his left eye and drew blood.Holding a white towel to the left side of his face, Roberson walked to the SU locker room where trainer Brad Pike fixed him up with five or six stitches and numbing. Roberson applied ice when he returned to the bench and re-entered the game with 1:28 left in the first half.“I feel fine. I just had to go out there and finish out the game,” Roberson said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textRoberson racked up three offensive rebounds in the first five minutes of the game — there were plenty of SU misses to be grabbed — and had five points by the time of his injury.He tipped in a Syracuse missed shot 2:47 into the second half and blocked a Jamel Artis layup attempt two minutes later.The Orange held a 13-rebound edge over the Panthers at halftime, but didn’t outrebound its opponent in the second half as each side grabbed 12 — and Roberson had just one rebound in the last 17 minutes of the game.But he reappeared in the last two minutes, attacking the middle of the paint for a basket to cut the deficit to 60-55 and snatching a defensive board 24 seconds later.His brief reemergence was too late for SU, though.“That’s a tough matchup, for him to go against Pitt’s bigs,” SU forward Michael Gbinije said. “I’m content with his effort and I feel like he didn’t do anything wrong out there. Just one of those games for him, but we all know he’s a good player.” Comments Published on February 21, 2015 at 5:51 pm Contact Phil: [email protected] | @PhilDAbb Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
