Umpire first signals a ‘wide’, soon reverses his decision to ‘out’ in Ireland Women’s Super 50 series

To support and boost the women cricket scenario in the country, Ireland Cricket board is currently hosting the Women’s Super 50 series. The tournament started in the first week of August with all the players divided into two teams, Typhoons and Scorchers.

They took on each other for the fourth time at the Oak Hill Cricket Club on Sunday (August 23).

In the tournament opener, Typhoons registered a seven-wicket win against Scorchers. However, the Scorchers levelled the series after winning the second one-day by eight wickets.

Later in the third match Scorchers had taken a 2-1 lead with back to back victories over Typhoons. The Scorchers continued the momentum in the fourth game and defeated Typhoons by 71 runs.

Scorchers’ skipper Gaby Lewis led from the front as she smashed 95 from 109 balls with 11 fours and a six. It was utterly her efforts that took Scorchers to 177.

Umpire surprised everyone with reversal of decisions

Typhoons came to chase a possibly low score but unlike Scorchers, Typhoons captain Laura Delany couldn’t perform for her side. Delany faced two balls and went back to the pavilion for a duck. On the delivery of LN McCarthy, Delny edged one down the leg and was caught behind by the wicketkeeper.

Well, when Denly started walking back to the pavilion, she stopped as the on-field umpire declared the dismissal ball as a wide delivery. Later, after looking at the square-leg umpire, he reversed his decision and gave it out.

Here is the video:

Currently, Lewis with 209 runs in three games is the leading run-scorer. While her teammate Leah Paul has acquired the second spot with 143 runs in four matches. Typhoons’ Louise Littler is the highest wicket-taker in the tournament. She has picked up 6 scalps in 3 games, whereas Paul follows Little with as many wickets in four contests.

‘What if I don’t have the same cover drive as before?’: KL Rahul on his fear during enforced hiatus from the game

In recent years, Indian cricket stars have been subjected to arduous schedules with minimal breathing space in between two successive series.

Indian captain Virat Kohli, during numerous press conferences, has touched upon the busy schedules of cricketers, with key actions throughout the calendar year.

With the amount of travelling, the load on players increases multi-folds. However, with the onset of , players could breathe a sigh of relief with the imposed hiatus from the game.

The last time Indian cricketers stepped onto the field in a competitive match was back in February this year, during the .

Since then, players have observed their quarantine period, amidst lockdown imposed in various parts of the country. The Indian cricketing stars are so used to doing the hard yards, day in and out, that the enforced hiatus made them itch to go out and resume their trade.

IPL 2020 will finally see the Indian stars back in a competitive environment, after a break of seven to eight months.

Moreover, India’s white-ball specialist KL Rahul had a different take on the enforced break from the game. The newly-appointed captain has opened up about his fear of losing his touch, due to the prolonged sabbatical from the game.

I did get anxious sitting at home. My fear was that I would get lazy, so I trained at home during the day. I made a plan for a day and tried to stick to it. But initially, I didn’t bother as I felt I deserved to be lazy and that I can wake up at whatever time I want to. Even if I didn’t train, it was acceptable for me because my body needed that break after years. Later on, though, I told myself I needed to plan my day, be it doing household work or getting up at a particular time. Most days, I stuck to my plan. I didn’t want to waste my time watching TV. I cooked, walked my dog and designed clothes for my brand,” Rahul told Indian Express.

‘Had nightmares thinking, what if I become slower?’: Rahul

Once or twice I did have sleepless nights thinking what if once I get back to playing cricket, I am not the same player. That was a bit scary, but luckily in Bengaluru, we got a few practice sessions, and that made me feel good. A couple of nights, I had nightmares. I woke up with the feeling, ‘Oh s**t, what if I can’t pick the line and length of the ball? What if I become slower? What if I don’t have the same cover drive as before?’ All these question marks were there. And the first session didn’t help: all those fears came true. I batted so badly in that session it was scary. But after three sessions, I started to feel better, and it made me happy,” Rahul concluded.
