The 20-year-old hit an unbeaten 41 off 26 balls (4 fours, 1 six) just when Trichy were tightening the screws. The all-rounder's efforts ensured the last season finalists attained the target of 146 in the final over and they finished on 149 for 5 in 19.2 overs. Captain C Hari Nishaanth earlier led from the front to give Dindigul a fluent start. The left-hander, who made it to the Chennai Super Kings team this season, struck 38 off 26 balls (6 fours) and more importantly raised 67 runs off 50 balls for the first wicket with S Arun (19 off 27 balls, 2 fours). Trichy left-arm spinners Rahil Shah (2-25) and M Mathivanan (1-26) had Dindigul in a spot of bother by not only choking the run flow but also claiming three wickets. Between the 11th and 13th overs they conceded just six runs, picking the wickets of Nishaanth and S Lokesh (9), with captain Shah bowling a wicket maiden. Earlier, Trichy had to battle hard to post 145-5 in 20 overs. Their innings was built around the . . .
Pamment did not elaborate on his assertion about the Indian players and did not take any names either. The IPL was suspended on May 4. "Some of the senior Indian guys don't like being restricted and told what to do," he was quoted as saying by stuff.co.nz. "But we did feel safe - at no point did we feel the bubble would be compromised ... We felt the travel was always going to be a challenge." The New Zealander, a former Northern Districts coach, said he and the MI players started to feel apprehensive shortly before the competition was halted. "It was when cases started to come with the teams. They were a little more fearful, a little more apprehensive," said the 52-year-old, who returned home on Saturday (May 8).

The 2020-21 NBA season just ended earlier this month when the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Phoenix Suns in six games in the NBA Finals, but it's never too early to look ahead to next season. On Tuesday, the league officially released its schedule of upcoming key dates, from free agency through the 2022 NBA Draft. After two straight seasons in which the NBA was forced to truncate and shift its schedule, the league will return to its traditional 82-game regular season schedule that runs from October through June for the '21-22 campaign. Also returning will be the somewhat controversial play-in tournament, which occurs in-between the end of the regular season and the start of postseason play. The play-in tournament was introduced for the 2020-21 season, and it gives the teams that finish ninth and 10th in the final regular season standings in each conference an opportunity to qualify for postseason play.

Getty Images The Yankees aren't having the type of season that they would have liked but that's to no fault of Aaron Judge . The outfielder has stayed relatively healthy this year and has 21 home runs and 47 RBI over 85 games. He's been a fixture amongst MLB DFS lineups despite the Yankees struggling to put runs on the board. Judge will hope to help New York gain some ground on the Rays in the Wild Card race when the teams face off at 7 p.m. ET. With one of the biggest bats in the game, Judge also has one of the biggest price tags for Wednesday's MLB DFS player pool. He will cost you $4,000 on FanDuel and $4,400 on DraftKings, so rostering him means you'll need to search for value elsewhere. With many day games on Wednesday's schedule, the MLB DFS player pool for the night games is rather limited so it would be beneficial to have some help in filling out your lineups. So, before locking in any MLB DFS picks for Wednesday, be sure to check out the MLB DFS advice, . . .
Getty Images The cold war between Aaron Rodgers and the Packers has thawed some over the last few days and the NFL 's reigning MVP is now poised to return to Green Bay for the 2021 season on a revised contract. Of course, this comes after an offseason-long feud between the two sides, largely spearheaded by the quarterback's discontent with his standing in the organization and a lack of say in certain decisions. As you may expect, Rodgers was the topic of conversation during Packers GM Brian Gutekunst's meeting with reporters on Wednesday and he was asked specifically about the quarterback's opinion being heard. Gutekunst noted that Rodgers has always had a voice within the organization, but may now focus on following through with his wishes. "He's earned that seat at the table to have a voice," Gutekunst said. "He always has had a voice, I think it's just kind of incorporating that."

There's never a dull moment surrounding the New York Knicks , and excitement over what they will do in the 2021 NBA Draft may be even higher than usual after their somewhat surprising 41-31 campaign in the 2020-21. If the Knicks are going to improve on their first-round playoff exit and cement their status in the Eastern Conference, getting some help through the draft will be critical. With four swings, including picks No. 19 and 21 in the first round, New York will have the opportunity to add a player or two who could contribute early. Considering the strides the team took last season and its returning talent nucleus of players like RJ Barrett and Julius Randle , there could also be some merit in trading away a pick or two (New York also has picks No. 32 and 58) to bring in a proven talent. The options are plentiful for the Knicks and Leon Rose, who is entering his second draft as team president. Here, we'll break down what to expect from New York in the 2021 NBA Draft, . . .
