The Indian cricket team aims to secure their maiden Test series victory in South Africa when they face the Proteas in a two-match Test series commencing on December 26th (Boxing Day) at the Centurion. The next test match will mark the debut of captain Rohit, experienced batsman Virat Kohli, and key fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah following their defeat in the final of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023.  

India concluded the ODI series with a 2-1 victory despite playing with a less experienced team after drawing the T20I leg of their South Africa visit. They are optimistic that their success in limited-overs cricket will carry over to the game’s longer format as they aim to achieve their first-ever Test series win in South Africa.

India has been visiting South Africa since the 1992-93 season, although they have been unsuccessful in winning a Test series. In the 2010-11 season, the Proteas came close to winning but ultimately drew the penultimate match, resulting in a 1-1 tie for the three-match Test series.

South Africa vs Indian Freedom Trophy Test Series 2023/24: Team Updates 

Several senior members not included in the white-ball teams have returned for the Test series. Rohit Sharma, who experienced heartache in the 2023 World Cup final, is set to play his first international game as the team’s leader since then. Ishan Kishan has opted out of the series due to personal circumstances, resulting in KS Bharat being selected as his successor. The development occurred within 48 hours following Mohammed Shami’s exclusion from the tour due to his ankle issue.

India has suffered another setback as Ruturaj Gaikwad has been out from the Test series owing to a fractured finger, which is expected to require approximately five weeks for recovery.

Temba Bavuma, who was given a break during the ODI series, will resume his role as the leader of the South African team. However, it is unclear if Kagiso Rabada can play, even though he has been included in the squad.

The left-arm seamer Nandre Burger, who performed exceptionally well in the limited-overs matches, has been selected for his first Test match, along with batsman David Bedingham and Tristan Stubbs. Additionally, wicket-keeper Kyle Verreynee has been brought back into the team. Dean Elgar, the ex-South Africa skipper, has officially declared his retirement, making this series his final appearance.

SA vs. IND Test Series 2023/24: Predictions and Odds 

In 2021, during their most recent tour to Centurion, India emerged victorious in the Test match held at SuperSport Park, marking the beginning of their series with a triumph. However, they subsequently suffered defeats in matches held at Newlands and the Wanderers.

There is no doubt about the excellence of India’s fast bowlers, but they must also be cautious about their over-rates while relying largely on their quicks.

South Africa had emerged victorious in eight out of their previous nine Test matches at SuperSport Park. However, the defeat against India stands out as an exception. The opening duo of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal played a crucial role in the first stages of the contest.

Betting odds from the recommended bookies in India have released prices for the first test series match on December 26: 

South Africa [2.72] 

Indian [2.36]

Regardless of how powerful the SuperSport Park wicket appears, the team that wins the toss will almost surely begin batting first.

Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin’s versatility could give India a significant batting depth advantage over South Africa, which relies heavily on specialists.

Injury concerns also plague South Africa’s premier fast bowlers, as Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi have missed the white-ball series due to nagging ailments.

And for these reasons, we believe the sportsbooks are correct in placing India as the betting favourite.

The Philadelphia Eagles can’t seem to catch a break right now.

On top of their current slump, they will now be without one of their best players for their Monday night wild card matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, star W.R. A.J. Brown will miss the game with a knee injury, but he’s expected to be available next week if the team advances to the NFC Divisional Round.

The former Tennesee Titans star injured his knee in the regular season finale during the loss to the New York Giants.

He missed his second straight practice on Friday and also made the news for wiping out all Eagles-related information and pictures from his Instagram account and deactivating his Twitter account.

At least both Jalen Hurts and DeVonta Smith have been full participants at practice and are fully expected to be healthy and play in this must-win matchup.

The Eagles started off the season 10-1 but lost five of their last six games.

They wasted multiple opportunities to run away with the NFC East Division and get the No. 2 seed in the NFC, and they’re on upset alert against a tough Buccaneers defense that could give them a lot of trouble.

Crazy as it may seem, this has put Nick Sirianni on the hot seat, as he seems to have lost his locker room’s trust.

It’s not usual to see a team firing a coach just one year after making this Super Bowl, but their meltdown hasn’t been usual, either.

آس 90 : How the Winnipeg Jets have worked their way to the top of the NHL standings

How the Winnipeg Jets have worked their way to the top of the NHL standings

سایت ace90

After 39 games, the Winnipeg Jets are on top of the NHL. This is the latest into a season that this iteration of the Jets has occupied first place in the overall standings. (The Atlanta Thrashers led the league 18 games into the 2006-07 season.)

Winnipeg, which has collected points in a franchise-record 12 consecutive games (10-0-2), has put on a defensive clinic over the past two months. The Jets have gone 29 games in a row without allowing more than three goals — the sixth-longest streak in league history. (The 1928-29 Boston Bruins hold the record at 44 consecutive games.)

“We emphasize a team game,” Jets coach Rick Bowness told reporters Sunday following the team’s 6-2 win against the Arizona Coyotes. “We emphasize pressure all over the ice. We emphasize as soon as (opponents) get in the zone, get on them as quick as we can. We just emphasize pressure as much as we can all over so they’re not carrying the puck in, they’re not going east-west on us, they’re not making plays.”

Since their streak started on Nov. 4, the Jets have shut down their opponents on the rush, limiting them to 5.03 scoring chances per game — second only to the Carolina Hurricanes (4.97) over that span. By comparison, Winnipeg allowed 6.5 rush chances per game through its first 10 contests.

The Jets have denied 44.2 per cent of attempts at entering their defensive zone, which ranks 10th since Nov. 4. When opponents have been able to set up in the Jets’ zone, they have not had much luck getting to the slot. Only 36.1 per cent of shots attempted against the Jets over the past 29 games have come from that area, the third-lowest mark in the league.

Of course, such a run of defensive dominance is not possible without outstanding goaltending. Connor Hellebuyck has saved a league-best 15.1 goals above expected in 21 starts since early November (0.72 per 60). Laurent Brossoit has been just as good when called on to give Hellebuyck a rest, saving 5.93 extra goals over his past eight starts (0.75 per 60).

There might not be a more complete team in the NHL than the Jets. All four forward lines are effective in their roles, led by the No. 1 unit of Nikolaj Ehlers, Mark Scheifele and Gabe Vilardi, which has outscored opponents 14-4 at 5-on-5 since coming together in mid-December. The defence is solid at both ends, and the goaltending is arguably the best in the league.

The Jets appear to be the real deal.

“That’s not an easy feat,” Jets forward Cole Perfetti told reporters Sunday when asked about leading the league. “You look at the teams in this league, you look at the players, it’s so hard night-in night-out to win on a consistent basis. We’ve been doing that.”

آس 90 : Pirate’s Rennie Stennett Goes 7 for 7 in 22-0 Blowout Against Cubs in 1975

Pirate's Rennie Stennett Goes 7 for 7 in 22-0 Blowout Against Cubs in 1975

48 years ago in Chicago, the Pittsburgh Pirates had an afternoon game against the Chicago Cubs. It was a record setting day in several ways. What stood out about that game was not just the lopsided final score that resulted in a Pittsburgh victory as they scored 22 runs and shut out the Cubs.

Moreso however was the play of Rennie Stennett. On that day, the Pirates second baseman came to the plate that afternoon seven times and with each at-bat he stroked a hit. Seven at-bats and seven hits. He became the only player since 1900 to achieve seven hits in a nine-inning game. One curious fact about the game is that the Cubs sent Rick Reuschel to the mound as a pitcher and later in the game his brother Paul pitched in relief and Stennett had a hit against both.

The final 22-0 score was the largest margin in a shutout in Major League history dating back to 1900. Prior to 1900 the Baltimore Orioles Wilbert Robinson duplicated the feat of seven hits in a single game and while there was one other player with seven hits, Stennett remains the only player to do it in a nine-inning game.

Of Stennett’s seven hits, two were doubles and he added a triple. His batting average after the close of this game was .287. In addition to the seven hits, Stennett has 11 total bases and scored five times as well as knocking in two runs. On the field he added four putouts. But Stennett was not the only Pirate with a big day. Star right fielder Dave Parker had a career day at the plate as well.

“The Cobra” as Parker was known had four at-bats and banged out just two hits, but they resulted in five RBIs, and he scored three times. Parker, like Stennett, also came to the plate seven times, one of which resulted in him being walked. Parker was hit by a pitch on one plate appearance and scoring a sacrifice hit on another. One of Parker’s hits was a home run. Incredibly, there were just two home runs in the game, Parker’s blast and one by Richie Hebner.

Hall of famer Willie Stargell contributed to the massacre with three hits in four at-bats with two runs scored and three RBIs. Aside from Hebner’s home run, he added two more hits and knocked in three runs, also scoring thrice. As a team, the Pirates hit Chicago pitchers around for 24 hits while scoring those 22 runs and their team batting average for the game was an incredible .453. Cubs’ pitchers walked six Pirates batters while striking out only five.

Light hitting shortstop Frank Taveras managed to have three hits in six at-bats all while carrying an average that rose to just .213 following this blowout. Every other starter had at least one hit as Al Oliver and Bob Robertson were the only starters with just one hit not counting starting pitcher John Candelaria. The Pirates in the end left 12 men on base.

For Chicago, their only three hits came off the bats of Jose Cardenal, Andre Thornton, and Dave Rosello. All three hits were singles. As for Cubby pitchers they had a disastrous day. Starter Rick Reuschel who took the loss to drop his season record to 10-16 lasted just 1/3 of an inning in the first as the visiting Buccos scored nine times in the opening frame. Unable to get anyone out, Reuschel surrendered six hits and gave up eight earned runs as well as walking two batters.

Relieving Reuschel was Tom Dettore who lasted 3 2/3 innings but gave up seven hits and another eight runs, seven of them earned. One of the hits he gave up was a round tripper and he walked two. After Dettore came Oscar Zamora, who pitched for just one inning and gave up two more runs. There would be two more Chicago pitchers making an appearance and they were Buddy Schultz as the Pirates hit him hard with six hits and four runs, two of them earned. Finally, there was the starting pitcher’s brother Paul Reuschel who pitched the final two innings and unlike the pitchers before him, did not surrender any runs.

In breaking down the inning-by-inning scoring, Pittsburgh scored nine in the first, two in the third, another in the fourth, six in the fifth, and two in each of the sixth and seventh innings. Perhaps Chicago Cubs fans had a premonition of what was going to take place because there were only 4,932 fans in attendance where for most games the crowds are much bigger.

The game took two hours and 35 minutes to complete and with the victory Pittsburgh improved to a season record of 86-64 and found themselves six games ahead of the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League’s East Division. This was the same division the Cubs were in and Chicago on this day remained in fifth place in the East with a record of 72-80 15 games behind Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh’s 22-0 victory may have been the largest margin of victory in baseball history when it resulted in a shutout, but it pales in comparison to what the Texas Rangers accomplished in 2007 when they defeated the Baltimore Orioles 30-3. That sounds like a football score! Here are some other notable blowouts:

  • June 4, 1911. The Cincinnati Reds defeated the Boston Rustlers 26-3. For Cincinnati they set a record by having all 13 players who stepped to the plate to score at least once. No team has ever accomplished the feat in a single game since.
  • May 24, 1936. New York Yankees 25 Philadelphia A’s 2. I guess you could say Philadelphia scored a safety. That is if this was football. While hall of famers Lou Gehrig, Bill Dickey, and Joe DiMaggio were not the big hitters in this game, it was Tony Lazzeri who smacked four hits in five at-bats that included three home runs and an incredible 11 RBIs.
  • August 12, 1948. Cleveland Indians 26 St. Louis Browns 3. The common theme here continues that the losing team hardly scored while getting their butts whooped.
  • April 23, 1955. Chicago White Sox 29 Kansas City Athletics 6. After just two innings the score here was already 11-3 in favor of Chicago.
  • July 7, 1923. Cleveland Indians 27 Boston Red Sox 3. The second appearance on this list by the Indians and the city of Boston again. With Cleveland ahead 8-0 the Indians brought in Lefty O’Doul as a relief pitcher who proceeded to surrender 16 runs in just three innings.
  • June 8, 1950. Boston Red Sox 29 St. Louis Browns 4. The Red Sox finally made it to the winning side of a blowout and this one preceded the Pirates 22-0 victory over Chicago as the most lopsided score in a Major League Baseball game.
  • June 24, 2023. Los Angeles Angels 25 Colorado Rockies 1. Team records for the Angels were set on this night putting into their record books the most runs scored in a single game as well as most hits ever with 28. They also set the team mark for largest margin of victory and single game record for runs scored and home runs in one game. On the flip side, the 13-run third inning by the Angels was the most runs given up in one inning in history by the Colorado Rockies, a dubious team record.

All other blowouts in professional baseball took place pre-1900 and the results were:

  • 5/13/1876: Hartford Dark Blues 28 New York Mutuals 3
  • 5/27/1876: New York Gothams 24 Buffalo Bisons 0
  • 7/24/1882: Chicago White Stockings 35 Cleveland Blues 4
  • 6/20/1883: Boston Beaneaters 29 Philadelphia Quakers 4
  • 7/3/1883: Chicago White Stockings 31 Buffalo Bisons 7
  • 7/6/1883: Cincinnati Red Stockings 23 Baltimore Orioles 0
  • 8/21/1883: Providence Grays 28 Philadelphia Quakers 0
  • 6/24/1886: Brooklyn Grays 25 Baltimore Orioles 1
  • 6/11/1887: New York Giants 26 Washington Nationals 2
  • 6/15/1887: New York Giants 29 Philadelphia Quakers 1
  • 6/28/1887: Philadelphia Quakers 24 Indianapolis Hoosiers
  • 8/25/1891: Chicago Colts 28 Brooklyn Grooms 5
  • 9/10/1891: Milwaukee Brewers 30 Washington Senators 3
  • 8/1/1893: Pittsburgh Pirates 25 St. Louis Browns 2
  • 8/17/1894: Philadelphia Phillies 29 Louisville Colonels 4
  • 6/29/1897: Chicago Colts 36 Louisville Colonels 7

آس 90 : Kabaddi Continues to Grow Its Presence, Increasing PKL Purse and Moving into iGaming

Follow Us On

In the vast nation of India, naturally, cricket reigns supreme – and has done for decades. Still, with over 1.3 billion people dotted around the Subcontinent, there’s plenty of space for more than one major sport. Since 2014, that major sport has looked to be kabaddi, which has only continued to grow in every regard over the last ten years.

While still leagues behind the IPL’s viewership, funding, and exposure, kabaddi has risen significantly since the launch of the Pro Kabaddi League. Interest in the top-tier competition alone has surged by 33 percent, according to these statistics, while interest as a whole in the sport has grown by 14 percent year-on-year. It’s seen as an innovative and entertaining sport.

Thanks to further investments from broadcasters like Star India, T Sports in Bangladesh, and ESPN+ over in the US, there’s enough money in the league to attract top stars and new talents. Now, the PKL’s reach is seen as far as Africa, the Middle East, and East Asia. In another sign of its popularity, the sport even has a presence in the increasingly popular space of iGaming in India.

Kabaddi Raiders proves an instant hit online

If there’s one place in entertainment you can look to for a demonstration of what’s hot right now, it’s iGaming. Developers can make entertainment products like table and slot games relatively quickly, and as the eye-catching title and theme are so important to getting players, they tend to jump on the top trending themes. This is why, on this website, Kabaddi Raiders is prominently posted as one of the top Indian games.

Sitting alongside Andar Bahar and Teen Patti live games from Ezugi, the Indi slots sensation has players spinning the reels to land kabaddi-themed symbols and search for the sports-like features. While the slot was predominantly made for the developers to appeal to as many Indian slot players as possible, its presence also serves another purpose for the sport.

By being available at a leading Indian online casino, Kabaddi Raiders subtly also promotes the sport itself. It’s clearly visible on the site, among other top slots like Book of Dead, Fa Cai Shen, and Mega Moolah, lending it a great deal of authenticity. This also proves how popular the sport is and that its fans are ready to engage with it even this far beyond the court.

Expanding the KPL under growing demand

The Pro Kabaddi League has been the centerpiece for the growth of the sport, taking it from a much more casual meet-up game to a professional organization. With plenty of money on the line for those who participate, athletes can devote more time to training and even aspire to reach the league from anywhere in the world.

What started as an eight-team league rapidly grew to 12, and while commercial circles and international brand participation are still on the rise, they’re not quite at the level to warrant an expansion to 16 or 20 teams. Still, this route for expansion is very much on KPL’s mind.

This year, the Pro Kabaddi League 2023 Auction showed further signs of growth and progress. As we covered here for the event, teams were able to retain a great mix of up-and-coming talents as well as experienced stars, but the real headline-maker was U Mumba paying a record Rs 68 lakh for Amirmohammad Zafardanesh. 

There’s clearly money in the league, and for this tenth edition, the purse was increased from Rs 4.5 crore to Rs 5 crore, hoping that it’ll increase the potential for teams to acquire and keep the best players in the world. Now, while still likely another couple of seasons away, the KPL has announced that a women’s league will be launched.

It’s an exciting time for kabaddi players and, particularly, PKL fans. The sport’s continually on the rise, and it’ll only become more prominent in the years to come.

The GOAT has spoken.

Former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who retired from the NFL in 2022 after 23 seasons, has finally weighed on who he believes should win the league’s Most Valuable Player award.

There are plenty of candidates this season, from quarterbacks like Brock Purdy and Dak Prescott to skill position players like running back Christian McCaffrey and wide receiver Tyreek Hill.

But Brady, who’s won three MVP awards himself, said he’d pick McCaffrey to win the award.

“He is definitely, in my mind, the MVP favorite,” Brady said on a recent episode of his “Let’s Go!” podcast, “and according to his quarterback, too, Brock Purdy, who says some amazing things about him.”

The McCaffrey-for-MVP conversation gained a lot of steam after the running back tallied 187 total yards and scored three total touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15.

McCaffrey is currently tied with Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert for the most total touchdowns in the NFL with 20 and leads the league in rushing yards and scrimmage yards with 1,292 and 1,801, respectively.

Those stats have to count for something, but a quarterback has won the award every year since 2013.

A running back has won MVP in the past, though: Adrian Peterson took home the award in 2012 when he was on the Minnesota Vikings.

Other recent running back legends like LaDanian Tomlinson, Shaun Alexander, Marshall Faulk, Barry Sanders, and Emmitt Smith have taken home the accolade as well.

Brady can’t vote for MVP, but his endorsement of CMC’s candidacy might count for something among those who do cast MVP ballots.

آس 90 : Dodgers’ trade for Tyler Glasnow helps club solidify starting rotation

Dodgers’ trade for Tyler Glasnow helps club solidify starting rotation

سایت ace90

سایت آس90

The Los Angeles Dodgers signed the best free agent ever earlier this week. But even that didn’t address their biggest need.

The club inked Shohei Ohtani to a record 10-year deal, yet because he’s not expected to pitch until 2025, the Dodgers needed to bolster their starting rotation, which had taken successive hits in recent seasons. Thursday’s trade for right-hander Tyler Glasnow, which isn’t yet official, accomplishes that, adding a frontline starter to the fold.

Here’s a closer look at the deal as reported and what it means.

The deal: Tampa Bay Rays traded right-hander Tyler Glasnow and outfielder Manuel Margot to the Los Angeles Dodgers for right-hander Ryan Pepiot and outfielder Jonny Deluca. The Dodgers and Glasnow then reportedly agreed to an extension worth $135 million over five years. 

The runners-up: Glasnow had been mentioned in trade rumours for months, with the Angels, Reds and Cubs among clubs linked to him.

The player: Glasnow is the headliner of the trade, so we’ll focus on him. The 30-year-old right-hander possesses one of the most promising arms in the game but has yet to put together a full season due to several injuries. However, despite missing the first two months of the 2023 season with an oblique injury, Glasnow clearly found his form.

The right-hander posted a 3.53 ERA and 2.91 FIP over 21 starts and 120 innings this past season — both career highs. He produced a monster 33.4 per cent strikeout rate, which placed him in the 97 percentile of major leaguers, and generated a career-high 3.2 wins above replacement, per FanGraphs.

Glasnow underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in 2021, and the sense now is that his arm is fully recovered and primed for success. The Dodgers certainly believe so, evidenced by the reported contract the club doled out to him.

The fit: The Dodgers’ rotation endured a major blow in late 2022 when right-hander Walker Buehler underwent Tommy John surgery. Then, during the 2023 season, right-hander Julio Urias (who’s now a free agent) was placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball after he was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence. Long-time ace Clayton Kershaw was injured and ineffective down the stretch and, as a result of all that attrition, the Dodgers’ rotation was exposed during a NL Division Series sweep at the hands of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Glasnow adds certainty to the team’s rotation picture and with Buehler set to return next season, the Dodgers appear to be in great shape. Add Ohtani to the mound mix beyond that, and we’re looking at a scary collection of arms on a team that has made the post-season in each of the last 11 years.

The next domino: Japanese right-hander Yoshinobu Yamamoto is the most coveted starter on the free agent market and the Dodgers were reportedly a primary suitor prior to this trade. It’s unclear how the deal for Glasnow impacts that, but it’s worth noting that Ohtani appeared at the organization’s meeting with Yamamoto.
