Cavaliers lead series

LeBron James was in inspired form as he led the Cleveland Cavaliers to a devastating 121-98 win over the Chicago Bulls in the NBA first-round play-offs.
James racked up 37 points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists and two steals as the Cavaliers stretched their series lead to 3-1.

Antawn Jamison chipped in with 24 points as the visiting side dominated in the United Center.

Miami Heat also notched a century, defeating the Boston Celtics 101-92, their third win in four matches.

Dwayne Wade was the undeniable star of the show, pouring in a massive 46 points as he tormented the Celtics.

The San Antonio Spurs are also looking a good bet for the next stage of the play-offs after going 3-1 up in their series against the Dallas Mavericks.

They triumphed 92-89 on the night, with George Hill responsible for 29 of their points.

The Denver Nuggets have a mountain to climb after Utah Jazz made it three wins from four in Salt Lake City.

Chennai Super Kings - IPL 2010 CHAMPIONS

Chennai were crowned Indian Premier League champions after defeating Mumbai by 22 runs in the final of the Twenty20 tournament in Mumbai.

Suresh Raina hit an unbeaten 57 and shared in a half-century stand with Mahendra Singh Dhoni (27) as Chennai posted 168 for five after opting to bat first.

Sachin Tendulkar (48) led a spirited chase, but Chennai were immaculate in the field as they restricted the Indians to 146 for nine.

Chennai off to a cautious start and while Murali Vijay looked in good touch, Matthew Hayden could only scratch around during an opening stand worth 44.

Vijay, however, was the first to depart, the right-hander holing out in the deep in the eighth over, while Hayden departed in the next when he mistimed a pull which went straight up for wicketkeeper Ambati Rayudu to glove a comfortable catch.

Dilhara Fernando, who had removed Vijay, then snared Subramaniam Badrinath and Chennai were left floundering at 68 for three at the end of the 12th over.

Dhoni joined Raina and immediately injected some pace by smashing Kieron Pollard for a six and four in the medium pacer's third over.

The turnaround came when Raina, who had played himself in nicely while Badrinath had attempted to up the ante, was let off twice - first on 13 when a mistimed pull which landed safely between Fernando and Abhishek Nayar, and again on 28 when Zaheer Khan grassed another straightforward chance.

In between those missed chances, Raina had lifted the tempo by smashing a four and a six and went on to club two more sixes before raising his half-century with his second boundary.

Together the duo added 72 in just 5.5 overs and although Dhoni departed, a few big hits from Albie Morkel and Srikkanth Anirudh helped the Super Kings keep the momentum.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin piled pressure on Mumbai opener Shikhar Dhawan by beginning with a maiden and Doug Bollinger picked off the batsman by having him edge to Dhoni in the second.

Tendulkar and Abhishek Nayar (27) got the chase back on track with a 66-run stand, although both presented Chennai with several opportunities with shoddy running and calling.

Nayar was eventually run out and Raina, introduced for the first time in the 12th over, also got rid of Harbhajan Singh - promoted up the order - in the same over.

The bigger blow, however, came in the 15th over when left-arm spinner Shadab Jakati removed Tendulkar and Saurabh Tiwary in the same over.

With Chennai needing 55 from the last three overs, the Super Kings were in dominant position, but Pollard narrowed the equation by hammering Bollinger for two sixes and two fours in the 18th which yielded 22.

However, both Rayudu (21), who had turned in a steady hand, and Pollard fell in the penultimate over from Morkel and the chase fizzled out.

Beauty Queen Shilpa reacting sharply

Jaipur team co-owners Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra have reacted sharply to BCCI questioning their ownership in the franchise.
BCCI President Shashank Manohar on Monday alleged he could not see either Shetty or Kundra's names in the franchise papers with the Board.

"I didn't find the names of Shilpa Shetty or Raj Kundra in the register," Manohar said.

Shilpa slammed the Board, saying Manohar's statement was an insult to her and her husband. She is reportedly upset with the probe in her stake. The Jaipur board are meeting today and will reconvene on Tuesday to work out legalities.

The Bollywood beauty said she paid for her stakes more than anyone else and will give her version on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Jaipur sources revealed Shetty and Kundra would not have gone public had the deal been under wraps.
Meanwhile, the Income Tax Department has asked all franchises for their shareholding and investment patterns. The team owners have been asked to file their income statements and present their audited accounts.

The department has alsoa asked the franchises to submit the details of the payments made to all the parties.

Will Mumbai Indians Win Royal Challengers Banglore ?

Having made it to the last four stage in three attempts, Mumbai Indians will be banking on skipper Sachin Tendulkar's sensational form and home advantage against last year's finalist Royal Challengers Bangalore in the first IPL semi-final here on Wednesday.

The Mumbai team not only has an extra advantage in home support but also a leader in Tendulkar, who has been in prime form in the tournament leads the run-getters chart. Tendulkar, by and large, has been the fulcrum around which the Mumbai batting has revolved. With 561 runs with five half centuries and a strike rate in excess of 136, the master batsman has led the team from the front.

Mumbai would again be depending on the start provided by orange cap-holder Tendulkar. They rested some key players, including their captain, for the inconsequential last league fixture against Kolkata Knight Riders last night and promptly slid to a huge defeat.

Tendulkar, however, has lacked a good opening partner with veteran Sri Lankan Sanath Jayasuriya lacking confidence and Shikhar Dhawan being inconsistent. Ryan McLaren was tried out against Bangalore and the experiment clicked with the all-rounder making 40 and Mumbai would be tempted to try it out again on Wednesday.

Mumbai youngsters have, by and large, provided good support with the duo of Saurabh Tiwary and Ambati Rayudu accumulating over 360 runs so far in the tournament. South African J P Duminy - after being drafted into the side in the last few matches - and Kieron Pollard has been a key figure in the Mumbai middle order and to add to it feisty Harbhajan Singh has proved more than handy with the long handle.

If batting has been their cornerstone, the all-round effort in the bowling and fielding department has been the highlight of their successful IPL III campaign. Harbhajan (15 wickets), Zaheer Khan (14) and death-bowling specialist Lasith Malinga (13) have done superbly both in terms of penetration as well as in economy while Pollard (11) too has chipped in nicely.

The fielding too has been brilliant, thanks mainly to the efforts put in by South Africa great Jonty Rhodes, who is the fielding coach of the outfit.

Bangalore, on the other hand, has slight edge in terms of experience with their array of battle-hardened international veterans in captain Anil Kumble, tournament's second-most run-getter Jacques Kallis and veteran Rahul Dravid.

With the likes of Manish Pandey, Kallis, Robin Uthappa, Virat Kohli, Ross Taylor and Kevin Pietersen up its rank, Bangalore boats of a formidable batting line-up. Apart from Kallis, who has aggregated 542 runs with six fifties at a strike rate of close to 120, it has been Uthappa's pyrotechnics that come to the side's rescue on more than one occasion.

Bangalore's bowling department, meanwhile, rests mainly on the shoulders on Kumble (12 wickets), pace spearhead Dale Steyn (12) and Kallis (11) with Praveen Kumar (8) contributing at crucial times even though he has been expensive.

The match also provides Kumble and his men a revenge opportunity as Bangalore, playing at home ground, lost by 57 runs to Mumbai in their last encounter three days ago.

But Kumble would be drawing heart from the fact that their previous visit to Mumbai, when they played at the Brabourne Stadium, was a successful one as the bowling clicked superbly to restrict the home team to 151 and overhauled the target with five wickets in hand.

The winners of Wednesday's contest would meet the victorious side of the second semi-final, to be held on April 22, between holders Deccan Chargers and Chennai Super Kings at the same Navi Mumbai venue in the summit clash on April 25.

Mallya in support for Modi

Beleaguered Lalit Modi found support from Bangalore owner Vijay Mallya, who credited the IPL commissioner for the cash-awash Twenty20 league's mind-boggling success.

Throwing his weight behind Modi, Mallya said IPL owes its success to Modi and also wondered at the hue and cry raised over trans-border transaction by some of the IPL franchisees.

"Unfortunately, this entire issue has snowballed into an unnecessary storm," Mallya said.

"As far as I'm concerned, I'm full of appreciation for what Lalit Modi has delivered through the IPL. If he has issues with the Government of India, that's his private matter and he needs to deal with it," said the liquor and aviation tycoon.

Modi opened a Pandora's box when he revealed the IPL Kochi franchise ownership, which cost union minister Shashi Tharoor his job, while the Income Tax authorities raided IPL office in Mumbai, grilled Modi and shot off a 10-point questionnaire to the Board of Control for Cricket in India.

Allegations of money laundering and betting are also doing the rounds and Finance Minister Pranab

Mukherjee said all aspects, including the sources and routes of funding of teams, will be thoroughly probed.

Mallya, however, sees nothing wrong with the transaction made through Mauritius.
"Cross-border transaction is part and parcel of the growth and development of Indian economy. Just because some investment has been routed through Mauritius doesn't make it tainted investment," said Mallya.

He said Bangalore has a clean slate and he has no doubts that other franchises also have unsullied record.

"As far as Bangalore is concerned, we've notified the stock exchange, replied to the Registrar of Companies and we are clean. I'm sure all other franchises would also love to be transparent," Mallya told a television channel.

He also dismissed reports that the franchise owners are meeting for Friday's IPL Award ceremony in Mumbai where they would discuss the issue with BCCI officials, after which Modi would be removed from the IPL commissioner's role.

"I'm not aware of any such meeting. But if there is a meeting of the franchise owners, I will attend as I always do. But as of now, I'm not aware of any such initiative to dislodge Modi," Mallya said.
Modi appreciated Mallya's gesture, who credited the IPL Commissioner for the high-profile Twenty20 event's mindboggling success.

"Thanks @thevijaymallya for the support..... truly appreciate your gesture," Modi wrote on his twitter page.

Meanwhile, the chief of the Sahara Group, Subroto Roy, told a television news channel that Modi has done great work for the IPL.

Bcci Turning out to be profitable organisation

As a former president of BCCI, I am saddened to note the recent developments. BCCI was formed in the year 1940 as a non-profit organization under the Societies Registration Act and the Members of the Board were eminent personalities, who were keen to develop cricket as a sport in India and so also several of the state associations have been formed under the Societies Registration Act with similar objectives.
BCCI has never missed the track and also were keen to develop cricket as a sport. The proposal of BCCI to form IPL no doubt is basically a proposal of combination of business and sport. It required careful handling by BCCI, so that the benefits of such a proposal could be fully enjoyed by the BCCI.
Unfortunately, however, I noticed that insiders have taken part in the IPL bids and I apprehended if it is allowed it would definitely spoil the spirit under which the BCCI is functioning in the development of cricket. I, therefore, represented the matter to BCCI and the Board has simply ignored the representation and to the contrary amended the bye-laws to give more room for insiders to meddle with.
I subsequently came to know through media that some of the office-bearers of the BCCI are connected with many of the IPL franchisees directly or indirectly. However, the BCCI did not take a serious note of it despite bringing it to its notice through courts. Today, 'The Hindu' newspaper in its editorial highlighted that "Allegations have been made that the process of bidding for franchises suffered from something like insider trading. There are also conflicts of interest among those serving on the IPL's Governing Council."
Parliamentarians have also raised their voice saying that the BCCI is taken over by the government and the IPL has to be banned. I feel to a larger extent the members of the BCCI have failed in their responsibilities and they had consciously allowed themselves to be exploited by certain groups by amending the byelaws. As far as I am concerned I have taken the matter to the court. Although before the High Court, Chennai I am not successful, I hope I may be successful by moving the issue before the Supreme Court.
The BCCI should ensure all those who have some stake or interest either directly or indirectly should be kept away from the board, so that it shall be able to independently perform and develop cricket as a sport which has been nourished so well over a period of 60/65 years free from any commercial interest by any of its members. Just expelling one or two members will not be a solution to the present episode.

The BCCI should also ensure that even the state associations should pass appropriate resolutions to amend their bye laws that no office-bearers shall have any commercial interests either directly or indirectly in IPL franchisees or in any other commercial ventures of the board or of its own events.

Chennai Super Kings Storm into IPL SEMI-FINALS

MS Dhoni and Subramaniam Badrinath smashed half-centuries as Chennai sealed a six-wicket IPL victory over Mohali at Dharamsala.

Shaun Marsh made Chennai pay dearly for lapses in the field as he smashed an unbeaten 88 and, with excellent support from Irfan Pathan (44 not out) and Kumar Sangakkara (33), powered Kings XI to a formidable 192 for three.

In reply, Badrinath (53) and Suresh Raina (46) kept Mohali in the hunt before Dhoni (54 not out) finished off the chase with a couple of towering sixes.

The victory, with two deliveries to spare, lifts Chennai to second in the table and their superior net run rate all but assures them of a place in the semi-final later this week.

Mohali signalled aggressive intent at the start and maintained the tempo thanks to some poor fielding from Mohali.

Mahela Jayawardene smashed Sudeep Tyagi for two sixes in the first over and went on contribute 21 in an opening stand worth 34 before Tyagi took an outstanding catch at the mid-on to remove the Sri Lanka batsman.

Albie Morkel, however, put down a far more simple catch from Marsh in the next over while the batsman was on 10, a missed opportunity which proved costly for Mohali.

Marsh and Sangakkara rebuilt nicely and got Mohali close to the 100-run mark with a 56-run stand for the second wicket.

Sangakkara found the boundaries regularly and had looked in supreme touch until he went down on one knee to swipe off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin across the line, missed completely and was bowled.

Yuvraj Singh's cheap dismissal then gave Mohali a glimmer of hope, but Pathan quickly closed the door with a solid batting performance which helped Mohali to a strong total.

Marsh, who was dropped again at the start of the 19th over, put on 99 with Pathan and en route reached his seventh IPL half-century with a towering six off Raina.

Ramesh Powar then gave Mohali a strong start in the field by removing Matthew Hayden for five in his second over with the new ball.

Powar struck again in his next over to get rid of the other opener, Murali Vijay, but Raina and Badrinath revived the chase with a 62-run stand.

Raina hit three sixes and five fours and perished attempting a big shot off Juan Theron in the 10th over, but Badrinath forged on and together with Dhoni kept Chennai in contention.

Badrinath fell just after reaching his half-century and the Super Kings were left needing 45 from 20 deliveries at that stage.

Dhoni, however, upped the tempo and unleashed an array of attacking strokes as Chennai raced across the line

Delhi DareDevils Sweeps Chennai Super Kings

Gautam Gambhir cracked an unbeaten 57 as Delhi Daredevils spanked Chennai Super Kings by six wickets in a low-scoring IPL match to virtually seal a semifinal berth on Thursday.

Captain Gambhir led a remarkable recovery with a resolute batting display with Mithun Manhas (25 not out) after his side made a messy start in the run chase of 113 by losing their top three batsmen for just six runs in the second over.

The duo shared 75 runs from 70 balls for the unfinished fifth wicket as Delhi romped home with eight balls to spare and snap their three-match losing streak at M A Chidambaram Stadium.

Gambhir, who fought dehydration by applying water on his head and body on few occasions, struck five fours in his 56-ball innings, his second IPL 3 half century, and hit the winning runs, a two, as Delhi reached 113 for four in 18.4 overs on a pitch which offered turn to slow bowlers .

Earlier, Chennai Super Kings could make just 112 for nine after electing to bat with left-arm pacer Ashish Nehra taking three wickets for 26 to lead a superb bowling display by Delhi Daredevils.

With the win today, their seventh in 13 matches, Delhi are virtually in the semifinals with 14 points. They play Deccan Chargers at home in their last league match on April 18

Despite the loss, Chennai are still not out of semifinal race with 12 points from 13 matches though the paltry total after batting first took down their net run rate to plus 0.270.

Pacer Dough Bollinger was the most successful bowler with two wickets for 24 runs in his four overs while Ravichandran Ashwin and Shadab Jakati got a wicket apiece.

Delhi made a disastrous start in their run chase, losing their top three wickets for just six in the second over and looked like throwing away the match before Gambhir and Manhas rescued them.

On a track which offered turn to slow bowlers, Chennai opened bowling with a spinner and Ravichandran Ashwin did not disappoint his captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni by removing dangerous David Warner in his third ball for a duck.

Warner tried to play a cut shot but failed to negotiate the turn Ashwin extracted and the ball spooned to cover for Murali Vijay to take a diving catch.

Virender Sehwag (4) played his characteristic style and fell the same way as he has been doing for a while in IPL III, out cheaply for four after playing a big shot early on as the thick edge off Doug Bollinger's first ball was easy picking for Matthew Hayden at slip.

Three balls later, Tillakaratne Dilshan (1), who returned to playing eleven after being dropped due to poor form, did not last long as he tried an expansive shot off Bollinger only to see inside-edging the delivery and his furniture being disturbed.

Gambhir and wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik started the repair work by sharing 32 runs from as many balls for the fourth wicket before the latter was out for a 16-ball 13 in the seventh over.

Karthik top-edged a pull shot off Jakati for S Badrinath to take a well-judged catch at midwicket to reduce Delhi to 38 for four.

The early wickets saw run rate plummeting and Delhi were 56 for four at the halfway mark. After Karthik's dismissal Gambhir and Manhas did not have a four for five overs as they ran mostly for singles.

The duo opened up from the 16th over onwards and struck some lusty blows off Ashwin, Suresh Raina and Bollinger to ease past the target of 113 with eight balls to spare.

Manhas gave able support to Gambhir and his 32-ball 25 contained two fours.

Earlier, left-arm pacer Ashish Nehra took three wickets for 26 to lead a superb bowling display by Delhi Daredevils as they restrict Chennai Super Kings to a paltry 112 for nine.

Needing to win the match for a semifinal berth, Chennai failed to apply themselves against a disciplined Delhi bowlers as their top six batsmen were back at the hut by the halfway mark for just 55 runs after electing to bat.

S Badrinath top-scored with a 29-ball 30 while Murali Vijay (17), Suresh Raina (15) and Michael Hussey (15) got the starts but failed to convert them to big scores as Chennai slumped to their lowest IPL III total.

For Delhi, Nehra took important wickets of openers Vijay and Matthew Hayden and that of Badrinath in his four overs. Sehwag chipped in with a superb two for 18 from his four overs while Dilshan, Amit Mishra and Dirk Nannes got one each.

Lalith Modi Grilled by Income Tax Official

Lalit Modi was tonight questioned by Income Tax officials over the financial dealings and share holding patterns of IPL amid allegations and counter-allegations over the bidding process for franchisees.

Modi was first quizzed for over an hour from 1915 hours at Nirlon House in Worli area where his offices are located. A second team of I-T officials questioned him thereafter.

Official sources said the I-T team's visit was part of a "source probe" that has been initiated by the Revenue Department to look into the financing aspects of the multi-crore IPL in the wake of the controversy over the funding of IPL Kochi, the new franchisee.

The I-T action comes in the wake of accusations questioning the funding and bidding process that governed all the teams after controversy erupted over the Kochi bid which involved union minister Shashi Tharoor.

IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi said the IT team's visit was only an inquiry and not a raid and assured that the IPL will "fully cooperate" in the inquiry.

The I-T department has created a special cell in Mumbai to keep a tab on all income generated by the IPL, the sources said.

Modi was continuing to be questioned late in the night as a third team of I-T officials reached his office around 2300 hours.

Sources said the probe has been initiated to find out if there is any illegal flow of funds, involvement of underworld and betting syndicates and whether any black money in being pumped into the sporting extravaganza including from foreign shores.

Modi had divulged names of the Kochi franchise while alleging that Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor had asked him not to reveal the names of the promoters which included Sunanda Pushkar, a close friend of his.

Tharoor is alleged to have played a role in Sunanda getting free equity worth Rs 70 crore in IPL Kochi, a charge denied by the minister.

The probe move came as the CPI-M said the government should inquire into the source of certain funds flowing into the tournament and reconsider whether any tax exemptions or concessions are justified for this commercial enterprise.

"There is an inquiry. It is not a raid. The I-T officials are possibly looking for the details of the tender (for Kochi team). We will extend all possible cooperation to them," Modi earlier told PTI.

Immediately after the I-T officials visited the offices of BCCI-IPL at Wankhede stadium here, Modi rushed to the headquarters to meet them. Thereafter Modi and I-T officials moved to Nirlon House.

Videocon Eager to Buy Kings Xii Punjab

Videocon are reportedly interested in buying the Mohali IPL team with the promoters setting an asking price of $ 300 million.

The franchise, currently co-owned by Dabur's Mohit Burman, Apeejay Surendra's Karan Paul, Bombay Dyeing's Ness Wadia and actress Preity Zinta, is languishing at the bottom of table in this year's IPL and is virtually out of a race for the semi-finals.

Sources indicated the final price is likely to rest around $280 million.
Reports suggest Videocon's chairman Venugopal Dhoot is eager to buy 'a minority stake in an existing team.'
Dhoot revealed to a Indian English daily that negotiations are already underway with the franchise: "We are negotiating the price."

The current owners bought the Mohali team in 2008 for $ 76 million (Rs 350 crore). However, Burman denied any plans to sell.

Chennai Super Kings Assaults Kolkatta Riders

R Ashwin bowled a virulent opening spell before Suresh Raina played an annihilative 78-run knock to bring Chennai Super Kings back in the semi-final hunt as the hosts scored a comprehensive nine-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders in their crucial IPL match here on Tuesday.

The Chennai team with this win, which came with 6.3 overs to spare, has virtually shut the semifinal door on Kolkata, who are languishing at number seven in the points table.

Chennai have jumped to second position from six in the points table and are tied on 12 points with four other teams as the race to the semi-finals is hotting up.

Ashwin's devastating three-wicket spell, in which he polished off the Kolkata top-order, set up the win as all Kolkata could manage on the board in the make-or-break match was just 139 for eight after electing to bat at M A Chidambaram stadium.

Wicket of Mathew Hayden was the lone blot in Chennai's chase as Raina's sublime knock, bejewelled with 11 fours and three sixes, did not give any chance to Kolkata to claw their way back in the match.

Raina's destructive innings came off just 39 balls and the left-hander finished the match in style with a six off Iqbal Abdullah as Chennai overhauled the target in 13.3 overs.

Murali Vijay played an unbeaten 50-run knock and supported Raina well with the duo raising an unbeaten 137-run partnership for the second wicket.

After cheap dismissal of Mathew Hayden (0) in the very first over, Raina ensured Chennai do go the Kolkata way and annihilated the rival attack with his fiery strokes.

The diminutive southpaw began his corrosive knock by hitting Ashok Dinda for three boundaries, of which two were exquisite off-side drives, in the paceman's first over.

Raina treated Kolkata bowlers with utter disdain and each and every Kolkata bowler bore the brunt of his fury.

In just six overs, Chennai had scored 67 runs and the match was very much in their hands.

Raina rattled up his half-century with a massive six off Abdullah after consuming just 24 balls. The fifty was laced with 10 boundaries.

Earlier, Ashwin's (3/16) devastating spin bowling spell punctured Kolkata's hopes of a good start as they lost four wickets at a score of 19 inside fifth over.

It was 73-run fifth-wicket partnership between Manoj Tiwary (27) and Angelo Mathews (48) that pulled Kolkata out of dire straits and gave something to their bowlers to defend.

Tiwary's 31 ball knock ended when he attempted to hit Suresh Raina out of the park but could only find Murali Vijay in the deep.

Mathews got out in the last over and hit two sixes, both off his compatriot Muttiah Muralitharan, and an equal number of fours in his run-a-ball innings.

At the start, after being hit for a massive six by Chris Gayle (7) in the first ball of the third over, Ashwin got his revenge in no time as he had the Caribbean batsmen stumped in the next ball.

Four balls later he had Brendon McCullum (0) caught by Muralithran just behind the short fine leg.

Aussie paceman Dough Bollinger (2/15) added to Kolkata's misery by trapping Ganguly (10), who though was unlucky to be adjudged leg-before by umpire Sanjay Hazare as the TV replays showed the ball would have missed leg stump.

The Kolkata players, sitting in the dug out, had hardly recovered from the shock start that Ashwin returned to cause more ripples by dismissing David Hussey (0) in the first ball of the fifth over to be on a hat-trick.

Huseey's dismissal was a terrific piece of work by Chennai skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni behind the wicket.

Ashwin would have got his hat-trick but for umpire Simon Taufel decision as the Australian ruled out the catch appeal against the new man in Angelo Matthews of Sri Lanka.

TV replays showed that ball indeed touched the gloves of Mathews before landing in the hands of close fielder.

From there on the Sri Lankan made full use of the umpiring error and in company of Tiwary repaired the innings well.

Chicago Wins against Toronto as Derrick rose shines

The Chicago Bulls beat Toronto 104-88 to take a one-game lead over the Raptors in the race for the final Eastern Conference play-off spot.

Derrick Rose was the star for the visitors at the Air Canada Centre, scoring 26 points, while Joakim Noah weighed in with 18 as the Bulls won all four quarters.

Dwyane Wade scored 32 points as the Miami Heat pulled into a tie for fifth place with a 111-98 victory over the New York Knicks, while Orlando Magic recovered from a 28-19 first quarter deficit to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-92.

In the Western Conference, the Portland Trail Blazers edged out the Los Angeles Lakers 91-88 at Staples Center, improving their prospects of avoiding the top-seeded Lakers in the first round of the play-offs.
Emeka Okafor scored 23 points as the New Orleans Hornets ended a run of five successive defeats with a 114-86 victory over the hapless Minnesota Timberwolves

Kevin Durant scored a whopping 40 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder poured in 42 in the first quarter of their match against Golden State - but it was still not enough as the struggling Warriors scored a morale-lifting 120-117 victory.

And Amare Stoudemire impressed for the Phoenix Suns, scoring 35 points in their 116-106 win over the Houston Rockets, for whom Luis Scola led the way with 30.

Akram Sushmitha sen Controversy

Wasim Akram clears the air as media links former Pak skipper with ex-Miss Universe Sushmita Sen.

When love is in the air, how can controversy be far behind? Hot on the heels of the Shoaib Malik-Ayesha Siddiqui-Sania Mirza saga that left a bitter-sweet taste in the mouth, two Pakistani quicks have been in the news for luscious reasons.

While the dope-tainted Mohammed Asif is facing heat from his ex-lover and actress-girlfriend Veena Malik, the Sultan of Swing and former Test skipper Wasim Akram is being romantically linked with former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen.

A recent report in Mumbai Mirror said Akram and Sushmita were spotted at a Mumbai nightspot and spent an evening in the company of each other. The report quoted an eyewitness account saying: "Akram and Sushmita walked in hand-in-hand at around 11.30 on a Monday night. They booked the bed-by-the-sea table and were seen relaxing. They seemed very comfortable in each other's company.

"Later, a couple of Sushmita's female friends also joined them. While Akram was acting coy, Sushmita seemed to be in pretty a playful mood and was loud enough to let the world know that she's very happy with the new man in her life. Both of them stayed together till around 1.45 when the restaurant shut down."

No matter how compelling the Mumbai Mirror report read, in an exclusive chat with on Friday night, Akram has cleared the air, strongly denying he was dating the Bengali beauty.

"I have known Sushmita for some time. Yes, I have been with her a couple of times, but if that means I am in love with her, then that's a very silly assumption," Akram said.
May not be in love, but Akram and Sushmita, who remains ‘single' by choice, have been ‘professionally' linked. Both were judges on a reality show Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena a couple of years ago. The chemistry between the two was a hallmark of the TV serial. While Sushmita is a proven movie star, Akram is a face on ESPN-STAR's star-studded commentary team.

"She is just a good friend, nothing more than that," Akram clarified.

The Pak pacer lost his wife Huma in October last year after illness. Sushmita was recently seen cheering for Kolkata team in an Indian Premier League match at the Eden Gardens. Akram is the team's bowling coach.
Meanwhile, Sushmita too has denied any romantic links with Akram. She praised the cricketer and said "he is a wonderful man."

Mumbai Indians Easily Knocked Down By kings xi Punjab

Mohali skipper Kumar Sangakkara hailed his side's six-wicket victory over table-toppers the Mumbai in their Indian Premier League clash.

Mohali's captain hit a commanding half-century under pressure to chase Mumbai's total of 154. Mahela Jayawardene (31 off 18 balls) and Adrian Barath (33 off 27 balls) also chipped in as the basement side stunned Mumbai.

Sangakkara, who was named man of the match for his 56 off 42 balls, said: "Finally we won at home and we are very happy. The boys stuck to the basics and won the game for us. We knew 154 was a gettable total."
He was full of praise for his bowlers, who managed to restrict Mumbai to an average total. Piyush Chawla and Irfan Pathan claimed three wickets apiece while Love Ablish snared two.
Sangakkara added: "The bowlers did not give extra runs, which is very important in the Twenty20 format. Pathan and Ablish bowled well. Chawla did well to claim Sachin Tendulkar's wicket."

Mumbai skipper Tendulkar lamented his side's inability to put enough runs on the board to win the match.

"There were no partnerships and that is where we lacked," he said.

"We were about 20 to 30 runs short, 170-180 would have been a good total as the ball was not coming on to the bat."

But the Mumbai skipper is confident of going back to winning ways after being humbled by Punjab.

He said: "We have a long way to go and we need to play to our potential. We have good players and they will do well."

Deccan chargers charge over Banglore challengers

T Suman and Andrew Symonds steered Hyderabad to a fabulous seven-wicket win over Bangalore on Thursday.

Hyderabad lost an early early wicket in the form of Monish Mishra, chasing a massive 185 against Bangalore.
But Adam Gilchrist and T Suman consolidated the innings and played their shots well to lay a solid platform for Hyderabad.
Gilchrist departed after playing a breezy knock of 32 off just 19 balls that put Hyderabad in a good position.
Then even Rohit Sharma departed in quick succession as Bangalore gained an upper hand.
But T Suman in the able company of Andrew Symonds clinch the game away from Bangalore.
Earlier, brilliant half-centuries from Jacques Kallis and Virat Kohli helped Bangalore post a massive total of 184 for six.
Bangalore lost an early wicket in the form of Manish Pandey after Hyderabad put them in to bat in their IPL match.
Thereafter Jacques Kallis and Rahul Dravid consolidated the innings but Dravid failed to sustain and departed after playing a fine knock of 26 off 25 balls. It was Pragyan Ojha, who took the prized wicket of the former India captain.
Then Andrew Symonds struck in the very next over to get rid of Robin Uthappa.
And before Bangalore could get over the twine blow, Ojha struck again to see off Ross Taylor for one.
And suddenly Bangalore were reeling at 68 for four in 10.1 overs.
However, Jacques Kallis and Virat Kohli fired all cylinders to put the team in the driver's seat. They also completed their half-centuries each in the process.
Hyderabad are in a must win situation in this crucial encounter.
While Bangalore are comfortably placed in the points table, with every chance of making it to the semi-finals, Hyderabad's five consecutive loses have put them in a danger of slipping down to the bottom of the table.

Bangalore: JH Kallis, MK Pandey, CL White, RV Uthappa, LRPL Taylor, V Kohli, R Dravid, R Vinay Kumar, P Kumar, A Kumble, DW Steyn

Hyderabad: AC Gilchrist, MD Mishra, A Symonds, Y Venugopal Rao, MR Marsh, RG Sharma, TL Suman, RP Singh, PP Ojha, RJ Harris, Harmeet Singh

Chennai Super kings Brings mumbai to victory haul

Chennai ended Mumbai's winning run with a 24-run victory in the IPL at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Chennai decided to bat first, but a meandering effort only produced a total of 165 for four, thanks to contributions from Matthew Hayden (35), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (31) and Subramaniam Badrinath (30).
It's all about numbers
Mumbai were off to a bright start and had cantered along nicely until a fatigued Sachin Tendulkar retired at the end of the ninth over.

The match then turned on its head as Mumbai collapsed in a heap and although Tendulkar returned to bat again, his dismissal for 45 ensured victory for Chennai.

Murali Vijay (14) recorded his first failure since being promoted to opener but Chennai's innings got going briefly before tapering to a poor finish.

Suresh Raina fell for 23 but Hayden, who had looked scratchy through much of his innings, continued on gamely and together with Dhoni injected some pace into the home side's effort.

But, just when the duo looked set to take the attack to Mumbai's bowlers, both batsmen fell off successive deliveries in a Kieron Pollard over and the home side struggled from that point on.

Badrinath and Michael Hussey, playing his first match this season, failed to kick on, resulting in a meagre 45 runs in the seven-over period stretching from the12th to 18th overs, although Badrinath added some respectability to the score by hitting four boundaries over the last two overs.

Despite the fall of opener Shikhar Dhawan for 16, Mumbai's pursuit of that total had progressed smoothly until the heat and humidity took its toll on Tendulkar and he retired at the end of the ninth over on 38.

Mumbai were nicely perched at 62 for one at that stage, but they imploded once the captain left the field.
Ambati Rayudu was stumped by Dhoni, Thilan Thushara took a neat catch in the deep to get rid of Dwayne Bravo, Saurabh Tiwary pulled one straight to Hayden at midwicket and Vijay took a stunning catch at long-off to send off Pollard to leave them in trouble.

McLaren's dismissal in the 15th over brought Tendulkar back to the crease, with Mumbai requiring 77 from 34 deliveries.

Tendulkar added seven more to his tally before lofting straight to Vijay at long-on and, although Harbhajan made a fighting 33, Chennai were firmly in control.

Chennai: ML Hayden, M Vijay, SK Raina, MS Dhoni, MEK Hussey, S Badrinath, R Ashwin, SB Jakati, DE Bollinger, S Tyagi, T Thushara

Mumbai: SR Tendulkar, S Dhawan, SS Tiwary, R Sathish, AT Rayudu, DJ Bravo, KA Pollard, R McLaren, Harbhajan Singh, SL Malinga, AN Ahmed

Raptors ripped apart by Cavs

Chris Bosh and the Toronto Raptors suffered a painful night as the Cleveland Cavaliers recorded their 11th successive home win.
Toronto's All-Star forward Bosh was flattened by an elbow from Cleveland's Antawn Johnson and was sent to the hospital for tests early in a 113-101 defeat which dents his team's play-off hopes.
Danilo Gallinari was the New York Knicks hero in his team's 104-101 defeat of the Boston Celtics, pouring in an impressive 31 points.
Kevin Martin's 29 points for the Houston Rockets helped them to a 113-103 victory over Memphis, whose 25-14 last quarter success was not enough to get the Grizzlies anything out of the game.
Gerald Wallace scored 28 points and Boris Diaw weighed in with 17 as the Charlotte Bobcats beat the Atlanta Hawks 109-100 to improve their hopes of a first play-off berth.
John Salmons' 26-point haul enabled the Milwaukee Bucks to recover from a 27-14 first quarter deficit and defeat the Chicago Bulls 79-74.
Charlie Villanueva scored 25 points, one more than team-mate Rodney Stuckey, as the Detroit Pistons snapped an 11-game losing streak with a 124-103 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Washington Wizards never looked back after establishing an early 15-2 lead against the Golden State Warriors, holding on for a 112-94 success which means Lenny Wilkens must wait to create a record of 1,333 NBA coaching victories.
Kevin Durant's 45 points were in vain for the Oklahoma City Thunder, who lost a high-scoring match to the Utah Jazz 140-139. Deron Williams led the way for the Jazz with 42 of his own.
Six San Antonio players broke double figures as the Spurs scored a 95-86 win over the Sacramento Kings. Tyreke Evans top-scored with 22 for the Kings in a game which was deadlocked 47-47 at the midway mark

Spurs Beat lakers

Manu Ginobili poured in 32 points as the San Antonio Spurs beat the Los Angeles Lakers 100-81 to clinch a play-off spot.
Tim Duncan added 24 points to see the Spurs move a half-game ahead of idle Portland for seventh spot in the Western Conference and one game behind the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Lakers failed to clinch the Western Conference crown and were jeered from the court by their fans as even a season-high 32 points from Pau Gasol could not help them avoid their third loss in four games.
The Oklahoma Thunder remain on course for seventh spot following a 116-108 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Kevin Durant scored 40 points to set a new franchise record for scoring in a season, beating Dale Ellis' 31-year record.
Oklahoma are also only one-and-a-half games behind Dallas, Denver, Utah and Phoenix.
The Boston Celtics held off a late rally from the Cleveland Cavaliers to edge the Eastern Conference winners 117-113.
Ray Allen scored a season-high 33 points as Boston ended a three-game losing streak to move within a game of the inactive Atlanta Falcons for third spot.
The Orlando Magic have all but clinched the Southeast Division title and second spot in the East, after they triumphed 107-92 over the Memphis Grizzlies to move four-and-a-half games clear of Atlanta with six games remaining.
The tie was marred by an on-court scuffle as a clash between Matt Barnes and Hasheem Thabeet escalated into a near 10-player shoving match.
The Toronto Raptors saw their play-off hopes dealt a blow as they slipped to their first defeat in four games, losing 113-112 against the Golden State Warriors.
The victory saw Don Nelson equal Lenny Wilkens' record for the most wins by an NBA coach.
Elsewhere, the Indiana Pacers crushed the Houston Rockets 133-102, while the Washington Wizards triumphed over the New Jersey Nets 109-99 and the New York Knicks edged the Los Angeles Clippers 113-107.

Shane Warne About the loss against Chennai Super Kings

Rajasthan Royals captain Shane Warne considers Indian Premier League as the toughest Twenty20 event in the world and said his side paid the price for lack of intensity in fielding and bowling against Channai Super Kings here on Saturday.

"We are playing in IPL where the intensity is high more than the other games in any part of the world. And, if your fielding is not good and catching poor then you have to be blamed," he said after his side's 23-run defeat.

"It is a flat wicket and a tiny ground. I knew the total would be little over 200 and 210 was par. Our fielding was quite bad. We dropped a lot of catches especially of Albie Morkel. Bowling at the death was also a concern for us. I think the difference probably was up in fielding and catching. We missed catches at crucial times," he said.

"I could have had Morkel on couple of times and things would have been different then. It is of course credit to him to have hit the balls too. It is just the nature of the game and we are going to get smashed. On a wicket like this everyone is getting smashed," he added.

He, however, praised his batsmen for a spirited run chase, especially Naman Ojha who made an unbeaten 55-ball 94.

"It was hell of a chase but our batsmen responded well enough. To chase 246 for a win and losing the match by 20 odd runs is hell of a chase. Ojha did exceptionally well and more so as he has to keep the wicket. He showed tremendous stamina," said the Australian.

Warne said his side will have to address fielding and bowling woes if they want to qualify for the semifinals.

"Something we need to address our fielding and bowling. We have three more matches coming at home. We showed a lot of character and spirit but the whole thing was not enough as we lost two games in a row. Winning the next match is crucial against Deccan Charges. We do not want to get in to a scenario in which you lose one and then pushed to win all other for a semifinal berth," he said. 

Warne praised Chennai opener Murali Vijay and pacer Doug Bollinger for their performances on Saturday.

"Vijay looks to be a talented and level headed cricketer. Good luck to him. His was a special innings and played good cricketing shots and He played good cricketing shots too. Probably credit should also go to Stephen Fleming for having coached a player like Vijay. He has obviously done his hard work.

"Doug is as much as Vijay played. His spell of four overs probably was the best. Wile others went for 10s or plus in a over, Doug was rather economical giving only two or so. Soon after arriving here and bowling at this kind of heat, I think it is credit to him. He executed his plans well," he said.

Bolinger, on his part, expressed happiness over the great start that he has made in the IPL.

"Good fun. Good start for my debut IPL season. It wasn't tough adjusting to the conditions because I've played for Australia on this ground, so it wasn't tough adjusting to the conditions. Every country is different and that is what makes cricket interesting. I like to do this in every match," he said.

"T20 is a funny game. They (Rajasthan) were going at a good rate when Shane Watson was batting. I felt 220 was a par score. We defended well. We kept the basics correct. I just went out there and did what I wanted to do," the Australian said.

Praising his team-mate Vijay, Bollinger said, "He backed his talent and that was a great innings, building the platform needed for the win. Vijay changed the match and rightfully he adjudged the man of the match."

Chennai Wins - Murali vijay shines

Opener Murali Vijay's dazzling century steered the record-breaking Chennai to a commanding 23-run victory over Jaipur.
Vijay, relishing his opening batsman role, smashed a terrific 127 which, along with a solid 62 from Albie Morkel and 34 from Matthew Hayden, took Chennai to a massive 246 for five - the highest total ever recorded in the IPL.

Shane Watson (60) and Naman Ojha (94 not out) replied well, but Jaipur were restricted to 223 for five.

Vijay had put his team in command from the outset, smashing Yusuf Pathan for a boundary in the first over and hitting Sumit Narwal, who shared the new ball, for a six and two boundaries off consecutive deliveries.

Chennai were soon blazing from both ends as Hayden too launched a ferocious attack, the former Australia opener smashing five boundaries and a six during his brief stay.

The opening partnership yielded 62, Hayden falling off the penultimate delivery of the power play, and Chennai then suffered perhaps their only blip - the dismissal of Suresh Raina for 13 shortly later.

However, Jaipur bowlers - including Shane Warne who conceded 32 from three overs - were largely ineffective and Vijay continued to bludgeon and blast.

Morkel kept the tempo up with mighty blows of his own and together the duo added 152 in 11 overs, Vijay going past the century mark for the first time in the IPL and Morkel reaching a half-century off only 26 deliveries.

Both batsmen fell in the final over, but Jaipur were already confronted with a massive target.

Jaipur, however, have never lacked courage and openers Michael Lumb (37) and Ojha gave spirited chase, helping the innings start well and leaving the visitors nicely placed at 62 without loss at the end of the powerplay.

Lumb, however, fell in the eighth over and Jaipur's trump card, Yusuf, was brilliantly caught on the long-on boundary by debutant Doug Bollinger two deliveries later, leaving the visitors in deep trouble.

Watson, playing his first match this season, joined Ojha and gave the Royals a glimmer of hope as he helped add 97 for the third wicket.

Jaipur were left needing 72 from the last five overs, but Watson was bowled by Bollinger at the start of the 16th and Chennai were back in control.

Bollinger was easily the best bowler on either side, finishing with two for 15 from his four overs.

Sania Mirza and shoaib Malik Controversy

Shoaib Malik, on Saturday, made a surprise visit to Sania Mirza's Hyderabad house amid reports that their marriage may be shifted to Dubai.
The former Pakistan captain appeared unfazed by threats of legal action from the family of Ayesha Siddiqui who claimed to have married him.

Clad in a pair of trousers and a T-shirt, Malik who is slated to marry Sania on April 15, appeared on the balcony of the tennis star's house and was seen talking on his mobile phone while Sania and her mother were involved in an animated discussion with each other.

At times, the talk between mother and daughter appeared to be tense and heated.

His visit to Hyderabad assumes significance in the context of a late night threat by Ayesha's parents that they would file an FIR against him if he went ahead with the marriage without divorcing their daughter.

There was no indication about the sudden visit of Shoaib but it comes amid reports in the Pakistani media that the venue of the marriage could be shifted to Dubai to avoid any problems from Ayesha's family. There was no confirmation of the reports as yet.

'Geo TV' quoted sources in Shoaib's family as saying that the marriage has been shifted to Dubai because his family is not keen on coming to India.

The channel reported Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray's threat has scared them and the Ayesha issue is also a factor.

Thackeray had lambasted Sania for choosing a Pakistani as her life partner, saying she would not remain an Indian post her marriage.

Adding to the couple's woes is Ayesha's legal notice to Shoaib for marrying her over phone and dumping her without taking a formal divorce.

Shoaib, who was reportedly playing in a Twenty20 league in Bangladesh, has added to the whole drama surrounding the much-anticipated wedding by landing in Hyderabad much ahead of schedule. The exact reasons for his visit to Sania's residence are not known.

New Lakers Deal for bryant

NBA superstar Kobe Bryant has signed a three-year contract extension with the Los Angeles Lakers, keeping him with the team until 2014.
The 31-year-old, who has won four NBA titles with the Lakers, had the option to become a free agent this summer but has finally agreed terms after a season-long negotiating process. The year remaining on his current contract will run its course before the new deal kicks in.
No financial details were released, but reports suggested it could be worth up to US dollars 90 million.
"We are extremely pleased that we were able to reach an agreement and come to terms on the extension at this time," said Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak.
"Kobe has been a cornerstone of the Lakers for well over a decade, helping to lead us to four NBA Championships and in the process developing into one of the greatest players in basketball history."
The 12-time NBA All-Star, who led the United States to Olympic gold in Beijing two years ago, has been with the Lakers since 1996, having been drafted that year by Charlotte and then traded.
In 70 games this season, Bryant is averaging 27.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.1 assists in 38.8 minutes.
