The former India captain was docked 50 percent of his match fees.”It’s (incident) like having a loss. And again, you move on to the next match as quickly as you possibly can. So to be honest, we haven’t spoken about it. It’s been dealt with and we’ve moved on,” Hussey said on the eve of their return leg match in Kolkata.”Yeah, it’s all happened and it’s been dealt with pretty much right after the game. And the game is finished and and that’s the thing about the IPL. You get to move on to the next match very quickly. There’s no point us dwelling on it. Worrying about and stressing about it, we’ve got to move on.”Hussey went on to say that Dhoni is a huge asset to any team, a brilliant player who can play to any situation of the game well.”So if he comes into the team’s in trouble, quite often you see him play slowly and just resurrect the innings, build a partnership, we’ve seen how dominant and how powerful that can be at the death as well.advertisement”So that that’s probably his value is that he can play a variety of roles. And he plays it very well with a calm head. So, so he’s a huge asset to any team that he plays for.”Asked whether he could be the answer to the No 4 riddle in the upcoming World Cup, Hussey said: “I’m sure the Indian selectors will think about lots of different combinations along the way. But at the end of the day, I don’t think it really matters whether you bet 4, 5 or 6, I think he’s going to be a great asset to the team.”Table leaders CSK are the team to beat this season with six wins out of seven matches, the latest coming against Rajasthan Royals when Santer sealed the game in the final ball with a six amind all the drama and controversy.”The lucky thing about the CSK batting order is that they are very experienced players. They know their own games very well. Quite a few of them have played here at the Eden Gardens on many occasions so they will know hat to expect and lets hope they can make the adjustments as quickly as possible. I’m expecting them to adjust pretty quickly,” he said.Andre Russell in ominous form with the bat, Chennai Super Kings will have their strategies clear to stop the Jamaican.”He is obviously in great touch at the moment. I just think every team is going to have some some clear plans against him. But I think you need to be really calm in the moment with him, very clear on where you want to try and ball and then execute that skill as best you can.”If he still is good enough to get it away, that’s okay then try and execute it again the next ball. not to complicate things too much keep things very simple but but the execution is probably the key.”With 10 wickets from seven matches, seamer Deepak Chahar has been in exceptionally good form doing a fine job in the Powerplay overs.Hussey said the 26-year-old’s ability to to swing the new ball with good control makes him a bankable bowler.”You watch the slow motions, the seam position coming down, it’s in beautiful position so yeah, he’s been very accurate and can swing the new ball and that’s why he’s used in the in the in the first few over and he’s ability to pick up wickets in that power plays very important as well,” he hailed.”In the last few matches, we have actually started using them at the death as well. And and I do see that continuing, maybe just one over towards the end. And it’s something that I know he really looks forward to.”Giving a team update, Hussey said Dwayne Bravo is not fit yet.”I am not hundred percent sure but he is well on his way to getting back from the hamstring injury, hoping he is back as soon as he can but I don’t think he is ready quite as yet.advertisementAlso Read | MS Dhoni should have been banned for 2 matches over umpiring outburst: Virender SehwagAlso Read | IPL 2019: MS Dhoni reveals reason behind post-match interactions with young cricketersFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Durr scores and dishes as No 5 Louisville beats Nebraska

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Asia Durr has always been known as a scorer. Now, Louisville’s top player is finding other ways to beat opponents.The senior guard scored 25 points for the No. 5 Cardinals, who reeled off an 85-68 victory over visiting Nebraska Thursday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. However, she also added a career-high eight assists in the win.“It felt great out there tonight,” said Durr, who made 8-of-17 shots and 4-of-9 3-pointers. “Every time I drove, they would pinch in. So, my teammates were there, and they made some great shots tonight.”Playing a team that has four starters returning from an NCAA Tournament trip last season, the Cardinals (7-0) never really dominated in the first three quarters, but they weren’t really threatened either. After the first quarter, the Huskers (2-4) never got closer than five points to the Cardinals, and that came with 6:30 left in the first half.Louisville finally broke away with a 10-2 run than spanned the final minute of the third quarter and the first 1:38 of the fourth that. Bionca Dunham’s inside jumper made it 68-52 with 8:22 left in the game.The Cardinals led by as many as 24 points in the final period, and it was with Durr dealing. Louisville’s fifth-leading career scorer got five assists in the fourth quarterDurr, a senior guard and national player of the year candidate, didn’t just provide a scoring punch. She added a career-high eight assists before leaving the game with 3:21 left. Five of those came in the final quarter.“She’s really starting to see the floor much better, and I think that’s something she can continue to do for us,” Louisville coach Walz said.Sam Fuehring added 14 points and 10 rebounds for Louisville, while Arica Carter pitched in 12 points.Maddie Simon scored a season-high 16 points to lead the Cornhuskers, who also got a season-high 15 points from Hannah Whitish.BIG PICTURENebraska: Having already played two ranked teams, the Cornhuskers didn’t come into the Yum Center the least bit intimidated. They shot 56 per cent in the first quarter and even led midway through the period. However, it wasn’t enough to overcome their season-high 23 turnovers.“Their defence is very relentless, and so it kind of just wears you down,” Nebraska coach Amy Williams said.Louisville: While the Cardinals defence has been good at forcing turnovers, it has been a little shaky of late in allowing opponents better looks at the rim. After keeping their first four opponents under 40 per cent, the Cardinals have allowed 45.8 per cent in the last three games.While Walz acknowledges there’s room for improvement, he also said there are worse problems to have early in the season.“I’d rather be sitting here trying to get better defensively than trying to figure out how to score,” he said.FAMILIAR FOESThe game was a reunion of sorts as Walz was an assistant at Nebraska 20 years ago when Williams was a Cornhusker. The head coach of that team, Paul Sanderford, sat courtside and then got a chance to meet with his proteges afterward.Walz spoke highly of Williams, who led a 15-win turnaround in just her second season at her alma mater last year en route to a 21-11 campaign.“Amy’s done a fantastic job,” he said. “She does a great job of recruiting to the style she wants to play. I expect them to do well in the Big Ten.”BANNERS UPBefore the game, Louisville unveiled its banner for reaching last season’s Final Four, and in doing so, the school showcased the new, more conspicuous spot for the program’s achievements. The banner, along with ones for the 2009 and 2013 NCAA finalist teams, now stand next to the men’s Final Four and championship banners at the north end of the Yum Center.Previously, they were positioned elsewhere in rafters, but Walz and others contended they were harder to see behind the light banks.UP NEXTNebraska: The Cornhuskers venture to Omaha Sunday for an afternoon contest against Creighton.Louisville: The Cardinals play their third of six straight home games on Sunday when they host Tennessee State.Steve Bittenbender, The Associated Press read more
