Hyderabad missed Warner-Bairstow magic at top vs DC

first_imgNew Delhi: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) failed to go past Delhi Capitals in the Eliminator of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Wednesday in Vizag and while pundits spoke about how the DC youngsters put up a brilliant show, one cant ignore the fact that SRH missed the services of the duo of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow at the top of the innings. With both Warner and Bairstow leaving for their respective preparatory camps for the World Cup, Hyderabad were forced to open with Martin Guptill and Wriddhiman Saha. And the duo failed to recreate the magic that saw Warner and Bairstow take the opposition bowlers to the cleaners at the top of the innings. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: RijijuBatting at the top for SRH, the duo of Warner and Bairstow scored 1145 runs with Warner getting 692 of them and Bairstow hitting 445 runs from 10 games. They played an integral part in SRH starting the season on a winning note. While the performance of SRH deteriorated after their exit, the early kickstart ensured the Hyderabad-based franchise qualified for the playoffs with just 12 points. Guptill and Saha failed to rise to the challenge and the responsibility seemed to be too huge for them. While Guptill could manage only 81 runs in the three matches that he played, Saha hit a dismal 53 runs in his three innings that he opened in. The result was there for all to see as SRH could manage only 54/1 in the powerplay, having lost the wicket of Saha for 8 in the fourth over against Delhi Capitals. Williamson too accepted that the team missed the two swashbuckling openers at the top of the innings. “Warner and Bairstow were brilliant when they were here and they were prolific with the bat. We were without them for the last two or three games, but we still played very well despite missing them,” he said.last_img read more

Reds Indians week in review

Cleveland IndiansThe Cleveland Indians struggled offensively once again, going 2-4 in series’ against the Los Angeles Angels and the Minnesota Twins.After taking only one of three from the Angels, the Tribe returned home and only won one in a weekend series against the division-leading Twins.The Indians are 10-14, 5-and-a-half games behind the Twins in the American League Central and in third place behind Detroit.Studs: Austin Kearns. The former Cincinnati Reds slugger had a big week, with seven hits and six RBIs in three games against the Angels. He came into Sunday’s game against Minnesota hitting .357, with two home runs and 12 RBIs.Duds: The offense. The Indians’ offense continues to be a major disappointment, with an American League-worst 85 runs. Those fortunes could change when highly touted catching prospect Carlos Santana gets called up from the Columbus Clippers.Up Next: The Indians continue their homestand with three games against Toronto beginning Monday and a three-game weekend series with the Detroit Tigers. Cincinnati RedsStep by step, the Reds are creeping back from a sluggish start to the season.The Reds opened up their week on the road with a three-game series at Houston.For the first time this season, Reds fans had their chance to bring out the brooms, as the Reds swept the series against the Astros.Pitchers Aaron Harang and Bronson Arroyo had some solid outings, each recording a win in the first and third games of the series respectively, and Mike Leake continued a brilliant start to his professional career recording a win off his seven-inning, five-hit performance in the second game.Pitcher Johnny Cueto helped the Reds’ win-streak get to five games on Friday, as the Reds won at St. Louis.The streak then came to an end Saturday as the Reds couldn’t match the Cardinals’ late-game surge, losing the game 6-3.Studs: The Rotation. At the beginning of the season, it seemed like these guys were never going to win a game for the Reds. In just this past week, Harang, Leake, Arroyo and Cueto all recorded wins, and didn’t leave it up to late game heroics to ensure a Reds’ win.Duds: Jonny Gomes. It was tough because no one Red had a really bad week. Gomes has only two hits in 15 at-bats over the last six games, though, and he’s a liability in the field as it is.Next Week: The Reds come back home this week as they host a series with the Mets today, and then get a day off before hosting a three-game series against the Cubs. read more

Football Dwayne Haskins faces first major opponent in No 15 TCU

Ohio State redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins (7) throws the ball downfield in the second quarter of the game against Rutgers on Sept. 8. Ohio State won 52-3. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorDwayne Haskins has been nothing short of spectacular in his first two starts for Ohio State.The redshirt sophomore quarterback combined for 546 yards and nine touchdowns with only one interception while completing 79.2 percent of his throws.These eye-raising statistics came against Oregon State and Rutgers, who held the third- and 55th-worst scoring defenses in the NCAA last season, respectively.Now, with TCU, the 16th-best scoring defense in 2017, on the horizon, Haskins and the Ohio State offense will be getting their first real test of the season. For Haskins, his first real test as a starter.Besides the final 20 minutes of the Michigan game last season, Haskins’ experience came at the end of games that were decided well before he ever touched the field.Haskins will be making his first collegiate start against a ranked opponent at a neutral site 18 miles from TCU’s campus. In doing so, he has an opportunity to build on his already impressive stats.In the press conference on Monday, acting head coach and offensive coordinator Ryan Day said he has seen promising decision-making in Haskins’ first two starts under center. “Whether it’s before or after the snap, he has to make decisions,” Day said. “He has the ability to make a check or in the pass game, he can change the protection and slide it one way or the other. He has a good handle on that.”Day said that despite the early season success Haskins has found, there are still plenty of mistakes to be corrected, especially with TCU coming up on the schedule.“I think that, you know, when the games get tighter, every play matters even more. And so the mistakes are still there,” Day said. “The interception in the red zone two games ago, or, you know, a play with false starting or sack on third down; those plays in a big game are going to show up even more.”To avoid these mistakes, Haskins will have to rely more on the rest of his offense than he has thus far, with sophomore and redshirt junior running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber having the big-game experience to help relieve some of the pressure.“I think the combination of a great offensive line and J.K. and Mike, you have to account for them,” Day said. “You saw Johnnie [Dixon], you see Terry [McLaurin] down the field, one-on-one situations with cornerbacks and then it’s just a matter of making the throw and catch. So it all starts with running the football, and if we can force that seventh guy in the box, that opens up stuff in the pass game.”With Haskins working almost strictly through the air, Day said big games from Dobbins and Weber allow for more chances to beat safeties on deep throws “whether it’s with [a run-pass option] or play-action pass,” something made more important in a matchup that’s expected to be closer than the previous two.It might have been Oregon State. It might have been Rutgers. But Haskins has lived up to the high expectations left behind by former Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett.Breaking the Ohio State record for passing yards and touchdowns in a first start, then completing 87 percent of passes for four touchdowns in his second, Haskins has looked the part of a worthy successor to one of the Buckeyes’ most decorated quarterbacks.Now, coming into TCU, Haskins has an opportunity to prove his worth against an opponent that seems more fit for the challenge than any he has ever faced. read more
