Pro Kabaddi 2018 Live Score, Bengaluru Bulls vs Tamil Thalaivas Live Score Streaming: Bengaluru Bulls 25-14 Tamil Thalaivas

Pro Kabaddi 2018 Live Score Streaming, Bengaluru Bulls vs Tamil Thalaivas: Bengaluru Bulls had beaten Tamil Thalaivas earlier.

Pro Kabaddi 2018 Live Score Streaming, Bengaluru Bulls vs Tamil Thalaivas: Bengaluru Bulls have played just one match that season and that was a successful one against Tamil Thalaivas. In that particular match, Pawan Shehrawat emerged as the star, scoring 20 points despite having to limp off a few minutes into the second half. His five-point raid was something that the Tamil Thalaivas never really recovered from. They ended up losing the match 48-37. That was the Thalaivas fourth defeat on the trot and they would now hope that a good rest period would do good for them.

Mahender Singh got a green card just before the stroke half time. This has been Bengaluru’s half through and through and Tamil Thalaivas have not shown any ability of coming back from this. 

So Kashling Adake had started this rout with a four-point raid on his very first attempt. Thalaivas have very rarely managed to get a single point out of raids since then. A Super Tackle helped them get themselves to six points. 

What a start from Bengaluru. They manage to inflict an all put within the first six minutes of the match. 

So these are the starters for both sides

The defeat against  Bengaluru Bulls was probably one of the toughest ones to take for Tamil Thalaivas among the four they suffered at home. It was an even contest for the first 10 minutes but that changed after Pawan stole five points from a single raid. Bengaluru just kept building on that and the crushed Thalaivas, no matter how hard they tried, remained behind for the rest of the match. They would hope that something like that does not occur again this time. 

Delhi Dynamos vs ATK, ISL 2018 Football Live score streaming: Both sides looking for first win

Delhi Dynamos vs ATK, ISL 2018 Football Live score streaming: The Indian Super League is back and the first game is between the winless pair of Delhi Dynamos and ATK. While Dynamos, the home side for the day, are only winless as the one game they played ended in a draw, ATK are also pointless, having lost both their opening home matches.

They would be hoping that they can change this pointlessness with a win, or even a draw here. ATK possess a good side on paper, and they would be hoping that all that strength does not turn into nothing on the pitch.

The players from both the team have arrived on the pitch as they get ready for the national anthem. It would be intresting to see how Kalu Uche performs against his former team.   

ATK: Arindam Bhattacharya; Aiborlang Khongjee, Gerson Vieira, John Johnson, Ricky Lallawmawma, Pronay Halder, Komal Thatal, Manuel Lanzarote, Everton Santos, Balwant Singh, Kalu Uche

Delhi Dynamos: Francisco Dorronso, Pritam Kotal, Rana Gharami, Marti Crespi, Narayan Das, Shubham Sarangi, Vinit Rai, Lallianzuala Chhangte, Rene Mihelic, Nandhakumar Sekar, Andrija Kaludrejovic

The ISL is back after what was a rather remarkable international break for India. Not too many players from these two teams were involved in it, those who were in the team were subsitutes. But now, getting back to present day realities, ATK find themselves in knee deep water already. Two listless performances at home means that they are yet to win even a point. Perhaps that is the reason why coach Steve Coppell has gone for some new faces in his starting XI. 

Delhi Dynamos vs ATK, ISL 2018 Football Live score streaming:

Delhi Dynamos vs ATK, ISL 2018 Football Live score streaming: ATK are facing their worst start to an ISL season, having lost two matches at home against Kerala Blasters and NorthEast United to sit with zero points at the bottom of the table.

What is worse for the two-time champions is that they have failed to open their goalscoring account and have conceded three already. The side had managed to pick up at least one point in their opening two matches in the last four seasons.

Despite a strong team with new additions like Manuel Lanzarote, Kalu Uche, John Johnson and Everton Santos, the Kolkata side has failed to find their groove and have been lacking in attack.

Vijay Hazare semis: Gautam Gambhir-led Delhi up against high quality Jharkhand

Gautam Gambhir-led Delhi will need to negotiate Jharkhand’s potent bowling attack with guile when the two teams meet in the second semifinal of the Vijay Hazare Trophy in Bemngaluru on Thursday. Gambhir leads a formidable Delhi unit comprising Unmukt Chand, Nitish Rana and Dhruv Shorey.

The captain himself has led from the front, scoring 490 runs in the competition at 61.25 including two hundreds. He had smashed 104 off 72 balls in the quarterfinal against Haryana after pacer Kulwant Khejroliya claimed six wickets including a hat-trick to set-up the five-wicket victory. Both Delhi and Jharkhand, who have won the tournament once each, are high on confidence going into another knock-out fixture.

Jharkhand’s win against Maharashtra was fashioned by their quality bowling attack, boasting the spin duo of Shahbaz Nadeem and Anukul Roy, and the pace combine of Rahul Shukla and a resurgent Varun Aaron.

Left-arm spinner Nadeem, who has been knocking on the India doors for a while now, is the tournament’s leading wicket-taker with 22 scalps. Young Roy, who also bowls left-arm, is not far behind with 14 wickets and was the man-of-the-match in the rain-affected quarterfinal after picking up a match-winning four-wicket haul.

The spinners had made their presence felt after the early damage done by Shukla and injury-prone Aaron, who has so far picked up 16 wickets at 17.87. The way Jharkhand have performed convinced even their mentor M S Dhoni that the side could go all the way without his services.

Just like Delhi captain Gambhir has let his bat do the talking, Jharkhand skipper Ishan Kishan too has made compelling contributions, amassing 405 runs at 50.62, including a hundred and three half centuries.

Kishan was out cheaply against Maharashtra but the experienced Saurabh Tiwary did the job alongside Shasheem Rathour who scored an unbeaten 53 to take his team home in a truncated tie. But come Thursday, they will be tested against the likes Khejroliya and Navdeep Saini along with young-spinner Lalit Yadav, who has been Delhi’s leading wicket-taker with 13 scalps at 24.38.

Determined to redeem pride after a below par show at the Asian Games, the Indian men’s hockey team is expected to make a solid start when it clashes with hosts Oman in the Asian Champions Trophy opener, in Muscat on Thursday.

The Indian team was favourite to win gold in Jakarta but had to settle for a bronze after a disappointing loss to Malaysia in the semifinals.

World No. 5 India goes into the tournament as the highest-ranked Asian nation and tackling Oman should not be problem for the side at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex.

India beat Oman 7-0 when the two teams met the last time during the 2014 Asian Games 2014, and coach Harendra Singh believes that facing the hosts will be a good test for his team ahead of other crucial round-robin matches.

“We are very excited to start our campaign against the hosts Oman, who will be playing in front of their home crowd. The opening match will be a good test for us ahead of some crucial pool matches against the likes of Malaysia, Pakistan, Japan and South Korea,” Harendra said.

“It is important for us to the start the competition by doing the basics right and producing our best performance in order to build momentum for the upcoming fixtures.”

India go into the tournament as the defending champions, having won the 2016 edition by defeating Pakistan 3-2 in the final in Kuantan, Malaysia.

But Harendra believes his team needs to keep the errors to the minimum if it has to lift the trophy again.

“We know that we have a good team which is capable of defeating any country in the world, but sometimes things do not go your way. Therefore, it is important for the unit to keep focus throughout the sixty minutes and not give the opponents any chances,” he said.

“We have to make sure that we have improved from the mistakes we committed at the Asian Games, and this tournament gives us the perfect opportunity to regain confidence ahead of the World Cup in Bhubaneswar. Our immediate aim is to qualify for the semi-finals of the competition and the team will work hard to achieve that.”

After playing Oman in the first match, India will face arch-rivals Pakistan on October 20, Japan on October 21, Malaysia on October 23 and South Korea on October 24.

The last edition of the tournament saw India remain undefeated as they defeated Japan 10-2, drew 1-1 with South Korea, beat Pakistan 3-2, China 9-0 and Malaysia 2-1 in the pool stages.

In the semi-finals, India had beaten South Korea 5-4 in penalty shootout.

Marouane Fellaini should be fit for Manchester United’s Premier League trip to Chelsea on Saturday despite sitting out Belgium’s friendly against Netherlands, the midfielder’s national team manager Roberto Martinez has said.

The 30-year-old was not involved in the 1-1 draw against Ronald Koeman’s Dutch side in Brussels on Tuesday, with Martinez confirming Fellaini was not “100 percent fit”.

“He should be fine, it’s just he wasn’t 100 percent,” Martinez told reporters.

Skipper Maya Yoshida was thrilled with Japan’s “historic” 4-3 win over Uruguay on Tuesday but said his side still have a lot of room for improvement.

Inspired by the young, vibrant trio of attacking midfielders Shoya Nakajima, Takumi Minamino and Ritsu Doan, who came into the game with just nine caps between them, Japan dominated the world’s fifth-ranked side and could have scored more than four.

Japan, ranked 54th in the world, have won all three of their games under new boss Hajime Moriyasu and the victory suggested they were on the right track ahead of January’s Asian Cup.

“I think overall we played well,” Kyodo News quoted Yoshida as saying.

“Of course we conceded three goals, which shouldn’t happen, but if we compare ourselves to Uruguay … then I think it was a historic victory for us.”

While Uruguay made five substitutions in the friendly, Moriyasu opted to make only two.

“That’s because I think the manager is really happy with (the new attackers),” added Yoshida.

“That’s why we only substituted two players.”

Japan have friendlies lined up against Venezuela and Kyrgyzstan next month before they begin their campaign for a fifth Asian Cup title in the United Arab Emirates.

Sri Lanka vs England 3rd ODI Live Cricket Score Streaming Online, SL vs Eng Live Cricket Score: Sri Lanka take on England in the 3rd ODI. The biggest concern in the match is what role would the rainfall play in the match. It is monsoon season and the rainfall washed out the first ODI. In the 2nd ODI, the match was decided via Duckworth Lewis. Both teams will hope to play full 50 overs in the match and have a complete game.

Here is the news – It is raining in Pallekele. There might be a delay in toss.

Hello and welcome to our Live Blog on the 3rd ODI between Sri Lanka and England. The two ODIs of the series have been hampered by heavy rainfall. And here is the news – the rain is expected to play a role in Pallekele, as well. One must ask why do ICC plan a series during a monsoon season in a country? But well, that is a debate, which has gone for many, many years.

Sri Lanka vs England Live Cricket Score 3rd ODI Live Streaming: Joe Root and Eoin Morgan commanded with the bat early on before Chris Woakes picked up wickets later to see England take a 1-0 lead in the five-match ODI series against Sri Lanka. The first ODI of the series was washed out after just 15 overs were bowled but there was enough in the second to get a result. When the drizzle turned into heavy rain, Sri Lanka were well behind the cutoff and after an hour of delay, England won by 31 runs under the DLS method. England needed to bowl 20 overs in Sri Lanka’s chase to ensure a result and not have to play on the reserve day on Sunday. The weather held up until then with drizzle coming down at the time. To facilitate that, England bowled 10 overs in 31 minutes at one point with play being eventually stopped in the 29th over.

NBA Roundup: Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant lead Warriors past Thunder in festive opener

Stephen Curry is coming off an injury-plagued season and a summer he thought might be among his best yet. On a festive night of celebration as another championship banner went up, Curry brought his usual flair and dazzle. Kevin Durant did all of the little things, too. Curry had 32 points, nine assists and eight rebounds, Durant added 27 points, eight rebounds and six assists, and the Golden State Warriors opened their quest for a three-peat by holding off the Oklahoma City Thunder 108-100 on Tuesday night.

“I love who we are, game 1 of 82,” Durant said. “Just keep grinding.” Golden State needed a strong fourth quarter after the two-time defending champions received their 2018 rings in a pregame ceremony shortly before tipoff and began the final season at Oracle Arena before a move across San Francisco Bay to new Chase Center .

“It’s a great move for the organization. We know that but this place is special, so we want to make sure this is a special season,” coach Steve Kerr said. Klay Thompson shot just 5 of 20 for 14 points while center Damian Jones scored 12 points on 6-of-7 shooting for the Warriors in his first career start and 26th game.

Kerr knows his players are still getting in shape and looked tired, saying: “We didn’t look much like ourselves. It’s not surprising either. We need a couple more weeks.” Curry called it “an emotional night” but then the Warriors had to refocus and get to work.

“We played a solid game, nothing spectacular, we had a lot of mistakes,” Curry said. “We understand the process of kind of building up.” Paul George scored 27 points for the Thunder, who struggled to find an offensive groove while missing star Russell Westbrook because of knee surgery last month.

Oklahoma City trailed by 10 at the break then came out of halftime making 9 of 12 shots to go ahead 69-66 before the Warriors rallied. “I was really encouraged and pleased with the way we came out in the third quarter,” coach Billy Donovan said. “Last year at times it was a struggle for us.”

Versatile Warriors All-Star Draymond Green, limited during the preseason by a sore knee, wound up with two points, 13 rebounds and five assists in nearly 33 minutes. Curry, who shot 11 for 20 with five 3s, notched 17 30-point performances during his injury-shortened 2017-18 season.

These teams met in a season opener for the first time _ though the Warriors won on the road against the Seattle SuperSonics in 1983. Golden State lost last year’s opener at Oracle after a title run, 122-121 to the Rockets.

TIP-INS

Thunder: OKC started 1 for 9, missing its initial three 3-point tries, and went 6 of 23 in the opening period (1 for 9 on 3s). … The Thunder were outrebounded 57-46 but grabbed 16 on the offensive glass. … C Steven Adams started after he had been questionable with lower back stiffness.

Warriors: Andre Iguodala experienced left calf tightness and played 10 minutes, all in the first half. … Reserve G Shaun Livingston, who had been questionable with right foot soreness, played 14 minutes.

MOMENT OF SILENCE

The Warriors showed a photo of late Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen on the big screen wearing a Portland hat, offering a tribute and moment of silence. Allen, a Microsoft co-founder who also owned the Seattle Seahawks, died Monday in Seattle from complications of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, according to his company Vulcan Inc. He was 65.

ROCK THE VOTE

Kerr encouraged fans to register to vote in a (hash)RockTheVote message on the scoreboard, while the Warriors also did so on social media with Twitter and Facebook posts.

THE RINGS

Players’ rings _ what the team said are the first reversible championship rings ever _ were lowered from the rafters with blue and yellow lightsabers. Kerr called them “obscenely beautiful” and noted he much prefers the banner raising for its significance. At the end of the ceremony, Curry took the microphone and called out longtime equipment manager and director of team operations Eric Housen to receive his ring in a lovely gesture to someone so important to the operation behind the scenes.

Recently retired big man David West, part of the last two title teams, sat courtside and received his ring. Representatives from each of the franchise’s championship seasons were on hand for the festivities.

UP NEXT

Thunder: At Clippers on Friday.

Warriors: At Utah on Friday.

Was in a bad place like everyone else: Darren Lehmann opens up on ball tampering saga

Former Austalia coach Darren Lehmann opened up on the ball tampering scandal that rocked Cricket Australia in March 2018. The former Australia allrounder, who first signed in the position from mid-2013, and was handed two extensions by the team performance manager Pat Howard, resigned from the position in the aftermath of the episode. Speaking to FIVEaa radio in an interview, the 48-year-old said that the incident affected him on a personal level.

“I was in a bad place like everyone for a little bit of time. It’s taken me the last three months, I’m starting to feel a bit more normal and enjoying watching the cricket again. Your kids, and when your wife’s copping it you say enough’s enough. That’s when it gets too personal and you take a step back,” he said.

Speaking on the banned cricketers Steve Smith, David Warner, and Cameron Bancroft, who were found complicit of tampering with the ball during the 2nd Test against South Africa in Newlands, Lehmann said they will return to play cricket for Australia. “They’re not too bad, they have good days and bad days like everyone. Obviously, that was a pretty big mistake by everyone, but the game moves forward, and they’re going ok, they’re good young men, and they’ll come back playing really good cricket for Australia,” the former Australian international said.

Lehmann further added that he may have extended his welcome as the Australia coach. “I look back now and I had a fantastic five years coaching Australia. But I look back now and go ‘maybe it was a bit too long’ to be fair. I speak to Justin Langer quite regularly just making sure he gets some time off where he can because you’re on the road and it’s 300 days of high pressure trying to win every game. That takes its toll,” he said.

“It’s 24-7, you don’t sleep. You’re thinking about either the day, the coming day, six months ahead, who you’ve got coming up, what players are coming back from injuries, you’re talking to everyone. It’s literally the most demanding job I’ve ever had, but it’s great fun. Even right to the end, I loved it,” he added.
