ICC World Cup Virat Kohli blasts record fifth consecutive fifty in 2019 World Cup, 54th overall in clash vs England

first_imghighlights New Delhi: Virat Kohli continued his magnificent form in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup as he blasted his fifth consecutive fifty-plus score in the tournament to keep India alive in their chase of 338 against England in Edgbaston on Sunday. Kohli, who had blasted 82,77,67 and 72 in the clashes against Australia, Pakistan, Afghanistan and West Indies, continued his great run as India were pegged back by some disciplined bowling from England after Jonny Bairstow smashed a century and Ben Stokes blasted 79 to help the hosts reach a huge score. Kohli and Rohit Sharma shared a 100-run partnership after KL Rahul was dismissed for 0 by Chris Woakes.Kohli became the second batsman in World Cup history after Steve Smith to achieve this feat. Smith had smashed five fifty-plus scores consecutively in the 2015 World Cup held in Australia and New Zealand. Smith blasted 95, 72, 65, 105 and 56* as Australia won the title for the fifth time. Smith became the only player to score over fifty in the quarterfinal, semi-final and the final. In the semis, he blasted 105 against India at the Sydney Cricket Ground.The Indian cricket team skipper would be determined to break his run of consecutive fifties and score his first century in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Kohli has already gone past 11000 runs and he became the quickest to the feat during the game against Pakistan in Old Trafford. India needs a win against England in order to seal their spot in the semi-final while Eoin Morgan’s side would be hoping to stay alive in the race for the playoffs by winning both their games against India and New Zealand. Kohli and Rohit would be hoping to create history in the game against England as India attempt the highest successful chase in the history of the World Cups. The highest chase in World Cups is 329 which was achieved by Ireland against England in Bangalore during the 2011 edition.When Kohli went past 11000 runs, the right-hander broke the previous record held by Sachin Tendulkar, which was just 276 innings during the Kanpur ODI against England in 2002. Consider the enormity of Kohli’s feat. Tendulkar took 276 innings while Kohli achieved it in just 222 innings, 54 innings quicker. The average of Kohli is over 60 while Tendulkar had an average of close to 45 at this stage. Kohli joined the likes of Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Sourav Ganguly and Jacques Kallis to reach 11000 runs in under 300 innings.The consistency of Kohli is remarkable. In October 2018, when he had played 205 innings, he had reached 10000 runs during the series against West Indies. Eight months later and 17 innings later, Kohli blasted a further 1000 runs as he continued to enhance his reputation as the ultimate run-making machine in the world.Kohli is already the fastest to 8000, 9000 and 10,000 runs in ODIs and he added yet another feather to his cap with his entry into the 11000. Rohit reached his milestone by cutting Shadab to the deep point fence for a single to bring up his century off just 85 balls. Rohit continued to rake in the records as he broke Virat Kohli’s mark of the highest individual score in World Cups against Pakistan, which was 107 in the 2015 World Cup in Adelaide. Virat Kohli scored his fifth consecutive fifty-plus score.Steve Smith achieved this feat in the 2015 World Cup.India is one win away from reaching 2019 World Cup semifinal.center_img For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Moving forward: Syracuse’s Class of 2013 set to sign Letters of Intent on National Signing Day

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ When he took over as head coach, Scott Shafer immediately went to work keeping Syracuse’s recruiting class intact in the wake of Doug Marrone’s departure to the Buffalo Bills. For the last month, Shafer and his new assistant coaches criss-crossed the country, convincing some recruits to stick with the Orange, and others to join.The dizzying process is finally at its conclusion.Syracuse’s 20 commits in the Class of 2013 will sign their Letters of Intent on National Signing Day on Wednesday. Nine of the 20 have three-star ratings from, and among them are two quarterbacks who could be the Orange’s starter next season. The class stretches West to California and South to Florida. Even with the losses of two key commits, Syracuse’s recruiting class remains strong.There was no guarantee SU’s group of signees would resemble Marrone’s group of commits, since other schools tried to sway them to reopen their recruitments. When Marrone left and took several assistant coaches with him, including offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, uncertainty about SU’s recruiting class hovered over the program.“We have a lot of people coming in trying to poach them and take advantage of the situation,” Shafer said at a press conference last month. “That’s the fight that we’re ready for.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textShafer hired George McDonald to be his offensive coordinator. McDonald is known as one of the top recruiters in the country. He spent the last two seasons as the wide receiver coach at Miami (Fla.), so he knows the South Florida area well, and it’s an area where Syracuse has recruited successfully in the past.The Orange has four commits from Florida, including Tyler Provo, the younger brother of former SU tight end Nick Provo.Syracuse did suffer losses. Highly touted quarterback Zach Allen from Temple (Texas) High School flipped his commitment from Syracuse and joined Texas Christian. Augustus Edwards, a running back from Tottenville High School on Staten Island, decided to visit other schools, including Florida State and Miami.But Shafer and McDonald earned the pledges of several talented prospects. Corey Cooper, a three-star wide receiver from Raleigh, N.C., committed to Syracuse on Jan. 27. Cooper had offers from Illinois, Louisville, Miami, North Carolina State, Oklahoma State, South Carolina and Tennessee, among others, according to a team losing its starting wide receivers, Cooper could step right into a key role.“He uses his hands, catches the ball extremely well away from his body,” Cooper’s high school coach Clarence Inscore said. “He runs a really good route.”While Syracuse ended up losing out on Allen, it still has commits from East Pennsboro Area (Pa.) High School quarterback Austin Wilson and Jersey Community (Ill.) High School quarterback Mitch Kimble. Wilson committed to Marrone and remained committed to the Orange, but Kimble was one of the first offers the new Syracuse staff made.Kimble’s high school coach, Dave Jacobs, said Shafer called Kimble on a Sunday and made him an offer. Jacobs said Shafer told Kimble he and his staff evaluated 17 quarterbacks on film and chose Kimble as their top choice.“He’s got everything that they’re going to need in their system and then some,” Jacobs said. “No. 1, as the leader of a football team, I think character is a huge part of the leadership qualities and he certainly has that. … I mean physically, character-wise he’s there.”Kimble will compete for the starting spot with Wilson, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound signal caller gave two stars. Wilson also had a scholarship offer from Eastern Michigan.Syracuse also has six commitments from junior college players, including Wayne Williams, a three-star defensive tackle from ASA College for Excellence in Brooklyn, N.Y. The Orange had tapped into the junior college system during Marrone’s tenure as former SU assistant coach. John Anselmo spent years coaching in the JUCO ranks, and recruited them successfully while with Syracuse.Six players have already signed their Letters of Intent to be early enrollees at Syracuse, including three-star prospect Darius Kelly, a safety from Pima (Ariz.) Community College. He was committed to Marshall until Syracuse made him an offer and he flipped to the Orange.The other three-star prospect in the group is defensive end Trevon Trejo, who played at Golden West College in California.Overall, Syracuse has 20 commits preparing to make their decisions official on Wednesday when they sign their Letters of Intent. All of the recruiting done by Marrone and his staff, and then Shafer and his staff, concludes when all of their recruits sign the dotted line.That’s when the prospects can finally break open the playbook and learn Syracuse’s systems.“One thing I do know is that you never know until Signing Day,” Shafer said. “That’s an absolute.” Comments Published on February 6, 2013 at 1:25 am Contact Chris: [email protected] | @chris_isemancenter_img Related Stories Coordinated visions: McDonald plans to orchestrate physical, explosive offense at SyracuseQuarterback recruit Zach Allen flips commitment from Syracuse to TCUFB : Quarterback Wilson commits to Syracuse, 3rd in class of 2013Dual-threat quarterback Kimble chooses Syracuselast_img read more
