England to play three cricket Tests in New Zealand to conclude 2024

The England and Wales Cricket Board on Tuesday announced a three-Test tour to New Zealand starting at Christchurch on November 28. After the series opener at Hagley Oval, the tour will move to the North Island for tests in Wellington from December 6-10 and in Hamilton from December 14-18. The last time the Test teams met in February and March of last year, they split a two-match series after England was on the verge of a 2-0 victory when skipper Ben Stokes enforced the follow-on. New Zealand won by one run only the fourth team in history to win a Test after following on in the second Test after England won the first by 267 runs. The three matches at the end of this year form part of the World Test Championship, which New Zealand won in its inaugural edition before losing the title to Australia. India, which has won six of nine Tests in this edition, leads the WTC standings with Australia in second place and New Zealand in third. England is ninth ahead of home series against West

India vs England: Rohit Sharma aces captaincy test in series of comebacks

The contest against England's 'Bazballers' was probably the biggest Test of Rohit Sharma's captaincy at home and not only did the India skipper ace it, he also got to "learn a lot" about his leadership in what he described as a "series of comebacks" India have been put under pressure in all the four Tests played thus far but after the Hyderabad debacle, the hosts managed to put the pressure back on the opposition to seal the series in Ranchi. The finale starts here on Thursday. Rohit struggled to define the 'Bazball' approach adopted by England but gave the opponents due credit. "Honestly, I don't know what Bazball means... whether it is to go and strike? whether it is to go and defend and wait for the loose ball? because I've not seen any wild swinging from anyone. I don't know exactly what this term means," Rohit said on Wednesday. "But yeah clearly they've played better cricket than the last series they were here. And you've got to give credit to two of their batters who got big

IND vs ENG: I used to watch and learn from Zaheer Khan - James Anderson

James Anderson, England's greatest fast bowler with an unparalleled longevity and nearly 1000 international wickets, says he has learned a few elements of pace bowling, including reverse swing, from Indian great Zaheer Khan. At 41, Anderson continues to lead the England attack and is two short of becoming the first fast bowler in the history of the sport to breach the 700-wicket mark. Spin legends Muttiah Muralitharan and the late Shane Warne are the only bowlers with 700 plus wickets in Test cricket. "For me, Zaheer Khan was someone I used to watch a lot to try and learn from. How he used the reverse swing, how he covered the ball when he ran into bowl, that's something I tried to sort of develop on the back of playing against him quite a few times here," Anderson told JioCinema. Zaheer, one of India's finest seamers, played his last Test in 2014 when Anderson was at the top of his game. Among the current lot of Indian pacers, Anderson is most impressed by Jasprit Bumrah's abilit

1st Test: NZ vs AUS Playing 11 - Ravindra in for Kiwis; Aussies unchanged

Devon Conway has been ruled out but Rachin Ravindra has been cleared to play for New Zealand in the first cricket test against Australia starting at the Basin Reserve on Thursday. Conway suffered a thumb injury while keeping wicket in the second Twenty20 international between the teams on Friday last week. While initial scans suggested there was no fracture, additional tests in Wellington in recent days have found there is damage to Conway's left thumb. Conway will have further tests later in the week. Meantime, Will Young open the batting with Tom Latham in Conway's place. Henry Nicholls, who was dropped from the New Zealand team ahead of its two recent tests against South Africa both victories has been recalled to provide reinforcement for the batting lineup. It's disappointing for Devon to be ruled out on the eve of an important match, New Zealand coach Gary Stead said. He's a class player batting at the top of the order for us and I know he was really looking forward to this

IND vs ENG: With a salute, soldier's son, Jurel responds to father's wish

The world was not waxing lyrical or using hyperbole to describe his entry into cricket's top-flight after an arduous journey. But Dhruv Jurel, who is not a graduate of some superbly fecund youth system, gave an indifferent shrug to the lack of buzz with a neat 90-run knock in only his second Test and a salute to his Kargil war veteran father after reaching his maiden international half-century here on Sunday. It was a soldier's son responding to his father's wish, rescuing his team from a precarious situation against a formidable England side while chaperoning the lower-order batters with an unwavering desire to succeed among the sport's elites. "It was for my father. He is a Kargil war veteran. Yesterday I spoke and he indirectly said, 'son, at least show me a salute'. That is what I have been doing all my growing up years. It was for him," Jurel said at the end of his most memorable day in the sport thus far. His father Nem Chand was a retired Havildar with the armed forces and .

No need to act like a hero: Rohit warns Sarfaraz for not wearing helmet

Rookie Test player Sarfaraz Khan was impressive on the field with two catches on the third day of the fourth Test against England here on Sunday, but India captain Rohit Sharma pulled him up for standing at the close-in position without wearing a helmet. The incident took place in the later part of England's second innings when Kuldeep Yadav was bowling. Sarfaraz, who was playing in only his second Test, came to field at close-in position without wearing a helmet, leading to Rohit warning him. "Arey bhai, hero nahi banne ka, helmet pehen le (brother, no need to act like a hero, wear the helmet)," Rohit was heard telling Sarfaraz in his inimitable style. Sarfaraz had to listen to his captain. A helmet was brought from the Indian dressing room and Sarfaraz wore it. The short clip went viral on social media. Even Delhi Police used it to spread awareness about the importance of wearing helmet while driving. "Two-wheeler par hero nahi banne ka! Hamesha helmet pehenne ka! (no need to a
