Cricket News This Sri Lankan left-arm spinner fills Rangana Herath’s void, creates history in South Africa Test

first_imgIn the process, Embuldeniya created history by becoming only the fourth Sri Lanka bowler in history to take a five-wicket haul on debut. In 1986, left-arm pacer Kosala Kuruppuarachchi became the first Sri Lankan to take five-wickets on debut during the Pakistan Test in Colombo as the hosts won the match by eight wickets. Upul Chandana, the legspinner, became the first Sri Lankan to take a five-wicket haul on debut overseas when he took 6/179 against Pakistan in Dhaka in 2000 but Sri Lanka lost the game by an innings and 175 runs. Akila Dananjaya took 5/24 against Bangladesh in Dhaka in 2018. Embuldeniya is the first Sri Lankan to take a five-wicket haul on debut outside the sub-continent.Embuldeniya made his First-Class debut in 2017 for Nondescripts Cricket Club. In 21 games at the domestic level, the tall left-arm bowler has taken 125 wickets at an average of 20.13. His major success in 2019 came in the game against Saracens Sports Club at the Colts Ground in Colombo. Embuldeniya picked up 6/96 and 3/66 but Saracens won the game convincingly. He followed it up with 4/86 against the Sinhalese Sports Club at the P Sara Stadium. Following the 0-2 rout against Australia, Sri Lanka appointed some fresh faces in the side and Dimuth Karunaratne was made the stand-in captain in place of Dinesh Chandimal. Lasith Embuldeniya became 4th Sri Lanka bowler to take five wickets on debut.Rangana Herath took 433 wickets in 93 Tests.Sri Lanka have won only one Test in South Africa. New Delhi: When Rangana Herath announced his retirement during the Galle Test against England in 2018, Sri Lanka suffered yet another setback in their quest to rebuild the team. Following the retirement of Muttiah Muralitharan, who had taken 800 wickets and was Sri Lanka’s ultimate match-winner, it was Herath who helped Sri Lanka maintain their consistency. The left-arm spinner, who made his debut in 1999, became the leading left-arm bowler in the world as he finished with 433 wickets in 93 Tests. However, in the Durban Test against South Africa in February 2019, Sri Lanka unearthed a new gem and a bowler who can potentially fill the void left by Herath. On day 3, 22-year-old left-arm spinner Lasith Embuldeniya created history with a five-wicket haul to give Sri Lanka a faint chance.Embuldeniya had taken the wickets of Dean Elgar (35) and Temba Bavuma (3) but a 96-run stand between Quinton de Kock and Faf du Plessis boosted the Proteas towards a healthy lead. De Kock was trapped LBW by Embuldeniya for 55 but Faf du Plessis neared a century and he shared a 60-run stand with Vernon Philander. However, after the lunch break, Vishwa Fernando got rid of du Plessis for 90 and Embuldeniya got the wickets of Philander (18) and Kagiso Rabada (0) as he finished with a haul of 5/66 from 26 overs. Fernando’s haul of 4/71 resulted in South Africa losing five wickets for eight runs.

Conte blundered with Febregas final snub, claims ex-Chelsea favourite

first_imgRay Wilkins claims Chelsea boss Antonio Conte blundered by leaving Cesc Fabregas out of his FA Cup final side.The Blues were denied a league and cup double as they were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal at Wembley on Saturday afternoon, but Wilkins believes it could have been a different story had the Spaniard been involved from the start.Instead, Conte preferred Nemanja Matic in the central midfield role alongside N’Golo Kante and the game was past the hour mark before former Gunner Fabregas was introduced into the action.And ex-Stamford Bridge player and coach Wilkins feels the decision to bench Fabregas, who has been in brilliant form in the closing weeks of the season, cost the Premier League champions.“You saw the Italian coach come out in Conte in that he went with two holding midfielders, rather than putting in the one who could create and open up Arsenal,” Wilkins said on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“The game was crying out for Fabregas to be put on at half-time. He’s the one player who can open teams up with one pass and I would have played him.”Cesc Fabregas unhappy with FA Cup final snub and refuses to rule out summer exitlast_img read more

Hartley eighth at Canoe Sprint Worlds

first_img‘A bit surprised’He told the Road To Rio website: “I was actually a bit surprised by Bridge making it into the A-Final in the 500 because there are some 200 metres paddlers now filtering into the 500m distance and doing so well. The K4 combination went on to finish sixth in the semi-finals in a time of 1:43.054, which meant another B-Final on Sunday. The South African quartet then placed fourth in that B-Final, which was won by Great Britain ahead of the Czech Republic and Spain. The bubbly Hartley remained as optimistic as always afterwards, saying: “Thank you for all the positive energy and wishes for my race today. It was a tough race with good athletes! I had to settle for 8th overall.” SAinfo reporter Hogg broke new ground for South Africa by becoming the first South African para-canoeist to take part in a World Sprint Championships. “Her up-and-down year with being sick and not being able to train as hard as often as she did in the past was also a worry for me.” Para-canoeingPara-canoeist Stu Hogg was also in action, finishing eighth in his heat of the K1 men’s 200 metres (LTA), with victory going to Tom Kierey of Germany. “It was a really hard heat and a difficult class for me. Big thanks go to Craig Mustard and James Godden (management) for getting me this far, plus all the support from everyone. I’m keen to really work hard for next year and improve on my weaknesses.” That result put Hartley into the B Final on Sunday where she posted a slightly faster time, clocking 42.737 to finish in eighth place. South African sprint canoe queen Bridgitte Hartley continued her fight back to full fitness with an eighth place in the final of the women’s K1 500 metres at the ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships in Duisberg, Germany on Saturday. Marharyta Tsushkevich took the win 41.145, with Sarah Guyot of France and Rachel Cawthorn of Britain following her across the line. K4Hartley’s weekend had begun on Friday, when, as part of the newly formed South African women’s K4 combination, she, Tiffany Kruger, Esti van Tonder and Kerry Shuter posted a time of 1:39.191 in their heat. She posted a time of 2:02.626 seconds in the final, which was won by Hungary’s Danuta Kozak in a time of 1:57.395, with Germany’s Katrin Wagner-Augustin placing second in 1:58.300. 200 metresEarlier Hartley had placed fifth in the K1 200m semi-finals, clocking 42.850 seconds. The winner, Slovenia’s Spela Ponomarenko-Janic stopped the clock in 40.229 in the third of three semis. Hartley, who won a bronze medal in the event at the London Olympics in 2012, was earlier this year felled by a bout of chicken pox, which set back her training and racing schedule, so her placing outside of the medals did not disappoint team manager Craig Mustard. “Missed making it to semi-finals by one position,” he told Road to Rio after his race. “Trying to take only the positives from this year and build toward next year. 3 September 2013last_img read more
