Sydney:India’s top batting order put Shane Watson’s unbeaten 86-ball 124 in the shade as they clinched the third and final match of their Twenty20 International (T20I) series by seven wickets to blank Australia 3-0 at the Sydney Cricket Ground here on Sunday Watson’s superb maiden century powered Australia batting first to a handsome 197 for five In reply India rode on blistering batting from their top four batsmen — Shikhar Dhawan (26 in nine deliveries) Rohit Sharma (52 in 38) Virat Kohli (50 in 36) and Suresh Raina (49 not out in 38) — to overtake the target in the final over With India needing 17 in the final over Yuvraj Singh hit pacer Andrew Tye for a six and then a four off the first two deliveries to pave the way for the last-ball heroics by Raina Chasing the 198-run target India got off to a flying start They raced to 62 in the first five overs thanks to a quickfire 26 off nine deliveries by Shikhar Dhawan — who after a dismal ODI outing was getting into the groove in T20I The left-handed opener plundered four fours and a six Watson got rid of Dhawan who edged to debuting wicket-keeper Cameron Bancroft However the wicket didn’t bring relief for the hosts as the in-form Virat Kohli joined Rohit Sharma in the middle and the duo scored at will They forged a 78-run stand for the second wicket when Rohit got out after scoring 52 off 38 The Mumbai right-hander was caught by Watson at midwicket off Cameron Boyce — but not before putting India strongly on track — at 124/2 in 123 overs Later Kohli completed his 12th T20I fifty — third in the series — but soon lost his wicket being bowled by Boyce with India needing 51 runs in 51 overs Thereafter Raina kept India going with two back-to-back crucial fours in the 18th over after which India were short of 22 runs in two overs In the penultimate over Watson bowled brilliantly and gave away only five runs with Yuvraj struggling to hit big The veteran southpaw however made amends in the final over collecting 10 runs off the first two deliveries bowled by Tye A bye off the third ball was followed by two consecutive doubles from Raina who then hit a boundary as against the required two runs for the win For Australia leg-spinner Boyce impressed with figures of 28-2 in four overs while Man-of-the-Match Watson gave away 30 runs for a single wicket Earlier Watson making his debut as captain in T20I milked six sixes — three off Ravindra Jadeja and two off Ashish Nehra — and 10 fours during his maiden ton as the Indian bowlers conceded 117 runs in the final 10 overs It was also the first time that India gave away a hundred to an opposition batsman in the shortest format Trailing 0-2 in the series Australia came up with the scratch opening pair of Watson and Usman Khawaja as regular batsmen David Warner Aaron Finch and Steve Smith did not play either due to injury or because they were being rested for the forthcoming series against New Zealand The hosts didn’t get a good start as in-form Khawaja was dismissed for 14 with the right-hander edging a Nehra delivery to wicket-keeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the third over However experienced Watson dropped from the One-Day International (ODI) series showed why he is still a force to reckon with as he kept punishing the Indian bowlers He played a crucial role in a 50-run partnership with Shaun Marsh who took his time Left-hander Marsh (9) had his stumps shattered when he went for a mistimed slog sweep off off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin Marsh’s wicket with Australia at 69 for two in 74 overs brought ‘Big Show’ Glenn Maxwell (6) but he was soon holed out at short cover to Suresh Raina off Yuvraj Singh’s bowling Travis Head then joined Watson in the middle and provided the muscle He despatched Yuvraj for a six and a four to boost his captain’s faith as the partnership flourished with Watson on a song Watson also benefitted from India’s generosity He was batting on 56 and on the second ball of the 12th over he mishit a wide ball from Hardik Pandya towards Virat Kohli who spilled the catch at deep cover In the 14th over skipper Dhoni failed to collect a throw from Pandya failing to run Watson out as the batsman tried to complete his second run Watson made India pay as he hit two sixes off left-arm spinner Jadeja and one off Ashwin before completing his maiden hundred in 58 balls After the hundred he again hit Jadeja for a six and one off Nehra as his team mustered a total of 197 for five Kohli got the Man-of-the-Series award for scoring 199 runs in three matches IANS The Indian Premier League (IPL) is back for its 10th season and apparently getting higher viewership than before I have always had mixed feelings for it It was slickly run but it was thoroughly compromised by the BCCI to the point when it lost credibility The courts have interfered to clean up what was essentially a very corrupt and nepotistic system One may argue that courts intervene too much in India and this is true But this intervention may have restored credibility to the IPL The IPL pose with the trophy before the 10th edition of the tournament Sportzpics This is great because the IPL gives many young players opportunities to make money and display their talent This was not the case a decade ago when there was no IPL Having eight teams each restricted to four foreign players in the playing XI means that there are at least 56 Indians who get a change to show their ability in each match This sort of opportunity was not available to young Indian cricketers before There were and are local teams that compete for tournaments like the Ranji Trophy but you could not become famous playing these unless you later went on to represent India in the national side It is true that as India has become the global economic hub of cricket and as its financial powerhouse the money given to players in local tournaments has also improved But for a long time this money lagged behind what was given to county cricketers in England who play in 18 teams The money in England was much better than that in India in those years We know that because the last generation of Indian players (like Rahul Dravid for Kent Sourav Ganguly for Glamorgan and Sachin Tendulkar for Yorkshire) all did stints in county cricket These days that does not happen because India has moved ahead and rewards its players better than any team in the world Virat Kohli for example has never played county and if offered a stint there he would probably not take it because more money is to be made in this country For the players in many other countries IPL has become the place to make real money I remember a story about the great Sanath Jayasuriya He transformed the way one-day cricket was played two decades ago along with his opening partner Romesh Kaluwitharana The Lankans developed an explosive style taking advantage of the field restrictions and helped their country win the 1996 World Cup As the team progressed through the tournament their government kept promising the players more money At one point Jayasuriya said he needed another Rs 175 lakh to complete constructing his house Sunil Gavaskar writes in his autobiography his father used to give him Rs 10 each time he scored a century in first class cricket and one month he scored so many that it broke the household budget It is remarkable to think of such modest sums today when cricketers are played crores for a few weeks’ work and many Indians make over Rs 100 crore a year I do not grudge them this money and there is one aspect to it that makes me happy Many of the players in IPL are the sons of men and women who are in ordinary jobs and not well off such as auto rickshaw drivers and so on These players are the first in their family ever to move into another social class I think it is a very fine thing that young men from such backgrounds get exposed to fame and money and playing with legends from abroad and India It will give confidence to many others who know them or know of them through their fame There is no shame in being born into poverty Equally I think it is good that players from well off families who have had many advantages must now be exposed to teammates from disadvantaged backgrounds It will change the way they think about the world We in the middle class live very insular lives in India From the time we go to school we are exposed properly only to those who are in the same social class as we are At the traffic light we can roll the window up at the beggar and shut her out and we can look away from the child labourers without a problem Foreigners who do not have such constant exposure are shocked when they come here but it no longer disturbs us much One of the reasons I thought that the Right to Education was a good law was that it forced private schools to set aside 25 percent of their seats for children from underprivileged families Unfortunately it seems that this fine reform is being rolled back It will deny the children of the poor exposure that they will never otherwise get It will equally deny the children of the well-off the exposure that might have sensitised them to the reality of our country By: Reuters | Paris | Published: October 2 2016 10:07 pm France president Francois Hollande with International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach (source: AP) Top News Should Paris be
