What Is New In Cricket
  1. Shafali Verma became the youngest player to score 50s in both the innings: In the women’s one-off test in Bristol, Shafali Verma became the youngest player to score half-centuries in both the innings. Additionally, Deepti Sharma scored a total of 29 runs in the match after the lunch break, which was extended due to rain. 
  2. Sachin Tendulkar states that Japrit Bumrah will play a crucial role in the upcoming match: The former cricketer said,” I was told that when a bowler is bowling well, stand at the non-striker’s end (laughs). Jokes apart, Bumrah is a world-class bowler, his action is slightly awkward, I have played him in the nets and his action is awkward. He is quicker than you think. He hits the bat hard so one can say because his action is odd, you get less time to react.” He also added that Ishant Sharma would provide guidance for the WTC match as he is an experienced player that “understands the conditions in England better than anyone else.” 
  3. The India Vs New Zealand match called off due to rain: Day 1 of the current WTC match has been called off due to unexpected weather, much to the disappointment of many players and fans.

Kevin O’Brien retires from ODI cricket: Kevin O’Brein, the Irish all-rounder who plays for Ireland, Leinster and Railway Union Cricket Club has announced his retirement from the over 50 format of ODI cricket. He holds numerous records, some of which include scoring the fastest century ever in 50-over World Cup, claiming the most number of wickets by an irish player at 114 wickets and becoming the first sportsperson from Ireland to represent his country 300 times. He will continue playing in the T20 and test cricket formats despite his retirement from ODI. 
  5. West Indies changes CPI 2021 dates at the request of BCCI: in order to make time for the second leg of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League that is going to be played in UAE, the the Board of Control for Cricket in India has asked West Indies to prepone the Caribbean Premier League to begin on August 25 and end on September 15.
