Former Australian spinner Brad Hogg – who follows the IPL closely – explained why Sunrisers Hyderabad lost by seven wickets against Chennai Super Kings on Wednesday at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Hogg felt SRH did not use ace spinner Rashid Khan well and that is what cost them the match. He also felt David Warner could have been a little more aggressive with the fielding placements knowing that they need to win to get off the bottom of the table. Hogg tweeted: “ Use of Rashid probably cost the @SunRisers last night, could of been a little more aggressive with field placements in his first over, especially when they needed the win to get off the bottom of the ladder.” Use of Rashid probably cost the @SunRisers last night, could of been a little more aggressive with field placements in his first over, especially when they needed the win to get off the bottom of the ladder #SRHvCSK #IPL2021 Brad Hogg (@Brad_Hogg) April 29, 2021 However, Rashid Khan picked up … [Read more...] about IPL 2021: Use of Rashid Khan Cost SRH The Game, Reckons Brad Hogg After Chennai Beat Hyderabad

After watching three quarterbacks selected ahead of him, Ohio State Buckeyes star Justin Fields was eventually drafted with the No. 11 overall pick by the Chicago Bears. Fields will join a crowded quarterback room in Chicago with Andy Dalton and Nick Foles . In two seasons as the starter at Ohio State, Fields completed 68.4% of his passes for 5,373 yards with 63 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He also rushed 867 yards and an additional 15 touchdowns on the ground. During this morning’s edition of ESPN’s SportsCenter, senior NFL reporter Jeremy Fowler explained how the Bears plan to use Fields in his rookie season. “(Fields) will be the starter eventually, but they want to take this slowly,” Fowler said. “I was told they believe they can win 10 games with Andy Dalton . They’ve been stuck in that 8-8 range, and stable veteran quarterback play can get them over the hump and back into the playoffs. Fields, the ceiling we know is massive, but they also drafted … [Read more...] about How Justin Fields will be used by the Chicago Bears in his rookie season
The Jacksonville Jaguars had themselves a draft over the weekend. Of course, it all hinges on No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence and how he develops as a quarterback, but they selected another playmaker in the first round. Travis Etienne , the former Clemson running back and Lawrence’s teammate, should fit in nicely with the Jaguars offense this season. However, this came after head coach Urban Meyer and company were reportedly heartbroken that Florida wide receiver Kadarius Toney was off the board. Nonetheless, Meyer was high on Etienne and already has a unique way to use the rookie running back in 2021. "He's much more than a running back," Meyer said, via ESPN. "He's a slash. We did not recruit him just because he's a running back. We probably wouldn't have. He's a guy that had a lot of production in the passing game at Clemson. He's got excellent hands and he'll be dual trained. "Those dual-threat players are hard to find, too, but if you can find … [Read more...] about Urban Meyer has unique way to use Travis Etienne with Jaguars
IPL 2021: Covid-positive cases in Chennai Super Kings: BCCI Official The petition, filed by a lawyer, was listed for hearing before Justice Prathiba M Singh, who said it appeared to be in the nature of a PIL in view of the reliefs sought and directed that it be listed before the appropriate bench. The plea was moved by Karan S Thukral, a lawyer, who has contended that conducting IPL matches in Delhi at a time when the city is grappling with a shortage of beds, oxygen, essential medicines and people are cremating their loved ones is "unreasonable and unjustified".

One of the most intriguing free agent signings for the Chicago Bears so far this offseason has been the addition of former Kansas City Chiefs running back Damien Williams . The Chiefs released Williams in a move to free up around $2 million in cap space this offseason, and Matt Nagy and company promptly swooped in and signed him. Williams chose to opt-out of the 2020 season to care for and be near his mother, who had been diagnosed with stage-4 cancer, but the former Super Bowl hero is ready to return to the field in 2021. When we last saw him, the 29-year-old running back was tearing through defenses in the 2019 postseason. He scored three touchdowns in the Chiefs' divisional round playoff win over the Houston Texans, and he followed that performance up with a 104 yard, two-touchdown showing in the Chiefs' Super Bowl LIV win over the San Francisco 49ers. Williams did quite well in the Chiefs' pass-centric offense. Appearing in 27 games in two seasons with … [Read more...] about How Will the Bears Use New RB Damien Williams?
