“Let us begin this bulletin with some news on last night’s T20 International Match between India and South Africa.

David Miller and Rassie van der Dussen hit fiery half-centuries to guide South Africa to a seven-wicket win over India in the first T20 International of the five-match series. Chasing a mammoth 212, Miller and Van der Dussen shared an unbeaten 131-run stand for the fourth wicket to take the visitors home with consummate ease. For India, Axar Patel, Bhuveneshwar Kumar and Harshal Patel scalped one wicket apiece. Earlier, Ishan Kishan smashed 76 off 48 balls to power India to 211/4, while Hardik Pandya had a score of 31 off 12 deliveries and Shreyas Iyer scored 36 off 27 balls. “
“Only about a few months ago, David Miller was in danger of losing his ‘killer’ moniker. Then, this year’s Indian Premier League arrived, the batsman was reborn – someone who sends shivers down the spines of the opposition bowlers.

Rishabh Pant’s India felt the full force of it at Feroz Shah Kotla on Thursday. The pitch eventually played out to be a typical ‘Kotla special’, where the hosts had posted 212/3 batting first.

At 81/3 on the heels of a few tight overs, India probably needed just one more wicket to seal the deal. They ran into Miller and Rassie van der Dussen, who shared an unbroken 131-run fourth wicket stand and pulled off their country’s highest successful chase in T20I cricket. “

Babar Azam became the first batsman to twice score three consecutive centuries in one-day internationals after his 103 helped Pakistan beat West Indies by five wickets on Wednesday. Captain Babar shared a 103-run partnership with Imam-ul-Haq and a 108-run stand with Mohammad Rizwan as Pakistan chased down a target of 306 in Multan to go 1-0 up in the three-match ODI series.

The 27-year-old Babar made two centuries against Australia before Wednesday’s match and also racked up three tons in a row in 2016, all against West Indies.

Babar hit nine fours in his 17th ODI century and the world’s top-ranked ODI batter also surpassed former India skipper Virat Kohli to become the fastest player to reach 1,000 runs as captain. “
“Moving on with some news from the Ranji Trophy.

Mumbai broke the world record for the highest margin of victory in the history of first-class cricket as they defeated Uttarakhand by 725 runs on the fourth day of their Ranji Trophy quarterfinal. They 41-time champions will lock horns with Uttar Pradesh in the semifinals.

Mumbai went past New South Wales’ 92-year-old Sheffield Shield record when they beat Queensland by 685 runs. In the Ranji Trophy, the previous record for the highest margin for victory was held by Bengal, who had defeated Odisha by 540 runs in 1953-54.

Mumbai declared their second innings at 261/3. Chasing the 794-run target, Uttarakhand were bundled out for just 69 in the second innings. “
“Left-arm spinner Kumar Kartikeya took a six-wicket haul to help Madhya Pradesh register an emphatic win by 10 wickets against Punjab on the fourth day of their Ranji Trophy quarterfinal match.

Kartikeya with figures of 6 for 50 had a big say in Punjab’s second innings, scalping six wickets for 50 runs. On Day 3, the 24-year-old accounted for the vital wickets of Punjab skipper Abhishek Sharma, Shubman Gill, Mandeep Singh, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Anmol Malhotra, and Sanvir Singh, to single-handedly demolish Punjab’s batting line-up.

Punjab in their second innings, were bowled out for 203. With 26 needed to win, Himanshu Mantri (9 not out) and Yash Dubey (17 not out) made sure that Madhya Pradesh reached home in style. “
“It has been a season of firsts for Karan Sharma. He made his first-class debut against Vidarbha before the 23-year-old was named Uttar Pradesh captain in the Ranji Trophy, and even made his Indian Premier League debut, representing Lucknow

On Wednesday, he led Uttar Pradesh to their first-ever victory over Karnataka, in 13 attempts, in the Ranji Trophy. UP are now expected to face heavyweights Mumbai in the semifinals, starting June 14.

It was Uttar Pradesh’s bowlers who brought the team back in the game after they bowled out Karnataka for a paltry 114 in their second innings. Captain Sharma stepped up and along with former India U-19 skipper Priyam Garg (52), added a valuable 59 runs for the third wicket. “
“We end the bulletin with some words from Harbhajan Singh for Hardik Pandya.

Harbhajan thinks the man from Vadodara has what it takes to lead India in the near future.

The 28-year-old all-rounder is being tipped as a future India captain after leading unfancied Gujarat Titans to victory in their maiden Indian Premier League season

Bhajji, as he is fondly called, said, “One of the biggest revelations in this year’s Indian Premier League was the advent of Hardik Pandya as the skipper of the Gujarat Titans and the way he led the team from the front to win the coveted title is definitely praiseworthy. “”
