Scotland vs Pakistan T20

Scotland vs Pakistan: Scotland Cricket has been seeing exciting times lately, strong promising shows in the ICC World Cup Qualifiers, their recent induction into the ODI ranking ladder and then a David-beating-Goliath win against England to record the first instance of the bottom-most ranked team vanquishing the top-ranked side in any format.

They now play a two-match T20I series against Pakistan, who are coming off their second drawn Test series in England in as many efforts in the last three years. After a shock Champions Trophy title win last year, Pakistan’s white ball form has been inconsistent, but they have been especially dominant in T20Is. In the last one year, they have won 13 out of their 16 fixtures in the format, winning five series on the trot. Both sides flaunt an exciting bunch of cricketers at their disposal, and with unprecedented glory at stake for Scotland and reputation to carry on for Pakistan, the two teams will have a lot to play for.

On the occasion of this exciting match-up, let us look back to the first and only time the two sides faced off each other in a T20I.

Back in 2007, when not only the viewers but the players as well were still trying to understand the dynamics of Twenty20 cricket, Scotland and Pakistan faced off in the third match of Group D in the inaugural ICC World T20, at Durban on September 12. Scotland, though only in nascent stages of their journey in international cricket, were a side that comprised mainly semi-professionals, and approached their match-ups with the heavyweights with a nothing-to-lose attitude.

Pakistani cricket was in all sorts of disarray, after a callous group stage exit from the World Cup in the same year, courtesy an upset caused by the same opponents and following controversies surrounding the squad selection for the World T20 with Shoaib Akhtar left out for disciplinary issues, an inexperienced bloke named Misbah-ul-Haq picked at the expense of Mohammad Yousuf and leadership handed to Shoaib Malik.

Giving his side the best chance of winning by chasing, as do most underdogs, Scotland captain Ryan Watson sent in Pakistan to bat first and his bowlers started off impressively with a maiden over in the powerplay. Persistently tight lines meant that Pakistan were looking dwindling in the contest at 50 for 3 in 7.4 overs, a lackluster start by all measures. The pace duo of John Blain and Dewald Nel were the best performers for their side with their combined figures being 8-1-48-4.

A steady, yet swift hand of 41(29) from Younus Khan exuded his usual brilliance and set up a platform for a late finish by Pakistan’s talisman Shahid Afridi, who eventful five-minute and seven-balls worth of stay at the crease yielded 22 runs and powered Pakistan to a competitive 171/9, including useful contributions from Kamran Akmal and Misbah at the back end of the innings.

In an age where batsmen were not too sure about how to approach targets of middling figures, Scotland’s inexperience surfaced. Apart from a lone hand by opener Fraser Watts who made an enterprising 46 off 35, nobody else from the top and middle order showed signs of a fight. Excluding Watts, no batsman in the top six reached double figures and no one in the whole line-up crossed 14. They were guilty of not giving themselves ample time at the crease before launching into the bigger strokes.

It was not just Scotland’s incorrect approach, but a mighty effort on the behalf of Pakistani bowlers as well. Umar Gul’s raw pace and Afridi’s cunning leg-spin accounted for four wickets each and they gave just 44 runs between them. This was the start of what would become a much-feared bowling line-up for the rest of the tournament. In the end, 171 runs proved 51 runs too many for Scotland as Pakistan registered their first win of the tournament and began their run of victories leading them into the finals.

More than a decade from then, things have changed drastically for the sides as well as the manner of operations in this format of the sport. While Shoaib Malik is the sole survivor from the eleven-year-old face-off, Pakistan have gone on to become one of the most consistent sides in a format where teams have generally struggled to have a hold of momentum for longer periods.

Also, on Tuesday, Scotland will be fielding a side that will not consist of eleven debutants. So, watch out for what will be an exciting contest.

Netherlands vs Ireland T20

New Ireland Twenty20 captain Gary Wilson has called on his squad to play with freedom in this week’s Tri-Series tournament in the Netherlands.

The Irish squad flew to Holland on Monday for their first competitive T20 international fixtures under Wilson’s captaincy.

The tournament will see Ireland, Scotland and the hosts play each other twice between June 12-20.

“We need to get ourselves back up that rankings table,” said Wilson.

“The key message I will be getting across to the team over the coming days is to back your ability and play with freedom.

“It’s time for the team to play some good cricket and get ourselves, in this format of the game, back on the straight and narrow.

“To be honest, we’ve probably slipped away a bit over the last few years, so we need to put in some good performances.

“My view is that with Twenty20 cricket you encourage players to play with a lot of freedom.

“The way to do that is to be nice and relaxed about the way we go into our cricket and, as captain, let guys really express themselves.

“This is a really enjoyable format and – with either bat or the ball in hand – the guys should view this as a great opportunity to showcase their skills.”

Batsman Wilson, whose appointment as Ireland captain was announced earlier in June, believes his side will face difficult opposition in the Tri-Series.

“Both Scotland and Netherlands have named pretty strong squads,” he added.

“It’s a format that they’ve done well in recently, so we’re expecting tough games.

“However, if we play to our skill level – really play to the level we know we can – then I’m confident it will go well for us.”

Ireland Head Coach Graham Ford believes now is the time to experiment both game plans and playing roles as part of preparation for the World T20 Qualifier tournament in 2019.

“I see this as the start of a journey to the World T20 Qualifiers, which is a hugely important tournament for us,” he commented.

“We’ve got a few games between now and then to find our best combinations and do a bit of experimenting to find which players suit which roles best.

“We will be using this Tri-Series to strategise around our strengths and develop a game plan that will enable us to perform well in the Qualifier tournament in 2019.”

Ireland squad for the Tri-Series in the Netherlands: Gary Wilson (capt), Andrew Balbirnie, Peter Chase, George Dockrell, Barry McCarthy, Kevin O’Brien, William Porterfield, Stuart Poynter, Boyd Rankin, James Shannon, Simi Singh, Paul Stirling, Stuart Thompson, Craig Young.

Auburn vs Florida

Auburn vs Florida: The message from Josh Anthony was simple Saturday afternoon in the aftermath of Auburn’s series-opening loss to Florida in the Gainesville Super Regional: Stay true to yourself.

The mission is hardly as unassuming: Defeat the top-seeded and defending national champion Gators on Sunday, on their home field, to keep the season alive and live to see another day.

Yet that’s the scenario Auburn now faces after its 8-2 loss to Florida in Game 1 of the best-of-three series. The Tigers have their backs against the wall and face a season on the brink, their College World Series aspirations coming down to the nine innings that await them Sunday at 11 a.m. CT (ESPN) at McKethan Stadium.

“Playing our game got us where we are today, and if we lave that, I really don’t feel like we will win if we leave our identity,” Anthony said. “It’s key for us to keep within ourselves and execute like we know we can.”

Auburn will try to keep its season alive and extend the Super Regional another day, to a winner-take-all Game 3 on Monday at 7:30 p.m. CT. To do so, the Tigers will turn to Freshman All-American Tanner Burns (7-4, 3.12 ERA), and they will have to go through first-round MLB Draft pick Jackson Kowar (9-5, 3.38).

“Auburn’s obviously a very good team, and we knew that from before,” Florida shortstop Deacon Liput said. “The weekend’s far from over.”

Burns has put together a fine freshman campaign while making 16 weekend starts. The right-hander out of Decatur is coming off six solid innings in a regional win against Northeastern last week, and he heads into McKethan Stadium having put together some of his best performances of the year away from Plainsman Park. That includes seven innings of one-run ball in the SEC Tournament against Ole Miss last month, as well as seven scoreless innings at Alabama in April.

Burns has the added benefit of experiencing a start in Gainesville already, though it was hardly his best effort. On April 27, he tossed four innings and allowed three runs and three hits in an 11-5 win against the Gators — the Tigers’ lone win in four tries against Florida this season.

Auburn hopes Burns can turn in a better effort, even if the Tigers want a similar result.

“We love Tanner,” Anthony said. “We’re going to go back and back up Tanner just like we back up Casey (Mize).”

On the other side will be Kowar, another dangerous right-hander in the Gators’ seemingly never-ending arsenal of arms. The Tigers are no stranger to him, either, having teed off on him in that same April 27 contest. In that outing, Auburn plated seven runs — five of which were earned — on eight hits in 4 1/3 innings, making for easily the shortest outing of his season.

“He’s going to pound the zone,” Anthony said. “He’s going to throw a lot of strikes. As a hitter, it’s our job to hit the strikes, so it’s going to be a competitive game tomorrow.”

Kowar has struggled of late, however. Over his last three starts, the junior right-hander has allowed 18 runs (14 earned) on 27 hits in 17 2/3 innings of work. During that span, he has walked nine, struck out 16 and posted a 7.13 ERA.

The Gators hope for a return to form for Kowar, and they know that’s what they will need to clinch another trip to Omaha.

“This time of year, I think the thing we’ll talk about (Sunday) is a leadoff walk in the second led to a run and a leadoff walk in the third led to a run, and sometimes those mistakes that you make end up costing you a game, and sometimes a game costs you a season,” Florida coach Kevin O’Sullivan said. “We’re going to have to be as good as Brady was (Saturday), and we’re going to have to have some really competitive at-bats.”

South Carolina vs Arkansas

South Carolina vs Arkansas: How to watch South Carolina play in Omaha-or-go-home game against Arkansas.

It all comes down to one final game — with a win, South Carolina baseball will advance to its 12th College World Series. A loss will send the Gamecocks home for the summer.

But who will start atop the mound for USC’s biggest game of the year Monday is still a mystery.

After Carolina’s 8-5 victory Sunday to extend its NCAA tournament Super Regional with Arkansas, coach Mark Kingston declined to name a starting pitcher for Monday’s pivotal Game 3, though he did say it will one of two freshmen — Carmen Mlodzinski and Logan Chapman.

“We’ll look at one of those guys. We’ll look at matchups and we’ll make a decision based on what we think gives us our best chance,’ Kingston said. “We’ll be all hands on deck … no doubt about it. We have a lot of guys in that dugout who want to be a part of it and contribute.”

Both Chapman and Mlodzinski briefly warmed up in the bullpen during Sunday’s game, but neither made an appearance.

In the opposing dugout, Arkansas will be going with junior righty Isaiah Campbell as its starter, despite the fact that he faced just three batters and did not record a single out in his last start, the NCAA regional final against Dallas Baptist. Coach Dave Van Horn insisted Sunday that he has faith in Campbell.

“I feel fine with Isaiah. He’s got great stuff,” Van Horn said. “If he comes out and does what he can do, he’ll be out there for a while. If he doesn’t, we’ll go to the next guy.”

The Gamecocks are trying to become the first team all season to win a series at Baum Stadium — the Razorbacks are 34-4 at home this year. USC is also 2-4 against Arkansas this season.

“We have confidence regardless of their record,’ junior shortstop LT Tolbert said. “We don’t even really look at that stuff. Just trying to focus on each game. I think we’ve matched up well with them all year, despite only winning two of the games so far. We know we have a lot of confidence ourselves.

The game will be televised on ESPN2, not ESPN as originally scheduled. Game 3 of Florida and Auburn’s Super Regional was shifted to 8 p.m., taking Carolina and Arkansas’ spot, forcing an adjustment.

Duke vs Texas Tech

Duke vs Texas Tech: Duke dominated at the plate Sunday night, beating Texas Tech 11-2 to force a winner-takes-all Super Regional final game Monday. One more will send the Blue Devils to their first College World Series since 1961.

“So we like lightning delays and we like elimination games,” Duke coach Chris Pollard said. “It was that way in Athens. We used a lightning delay to kind of get ourselves reset, get our offense going, and we’ve been really comfortable playing with our backs against the wall.”

The Blue Devils (45-17) scored 11 runs on 16 hits, getting on the board in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Zack Kone and Griffin Conine hit back-to-back singles, then Joey Loperfido (three hits with three RBIs) scored both with a no-out triple. A ground out later, Max Miller doubled in the freshman first baseman then Chris Crabtree doubled to score Miller, putting Duke ahead 4-0.

Chris Proctor started the fifth inning with a lead-off double, then stole third base. Kone singled to right field to extend the Blue Devils lead, 5-0, and Texas Tech (43-18) replaced ace Caleb Kilian with Kurt Wilson.

Kilian (9-2) allowed five runs and eight hits — both career highs — in four-plus innings.

Conine singled, then Wilson walked Loperfido. Kennie Taylor picked up his first hit of the day with a RBI single, making it 6-0. Miller continued the scoring, hitting a triple down the right field line and clearing the bases for a 9-0 lead.

Crabtree struck out looking and Wilson hit Jack Labosky before Texas Tech went to the bullpen again. Jimmy Herron flied out to center field off the first pitch Connor Queen threw, scoring Miller on the sacrifice before the end of the inning for a 10-0 lead.

Sophomore lefty Graeme Stinson (5-1), making only his fourth start in 23 appearances this season, threw six scoreless innings with six strikeouts.

“We got an unbelievable pitching outing from Graeme Stinson,” Pollard said. “When we did score, he put up a couple of really big shutdown innings.”

The Red Raiders’ first chance at scoring came in the sixth inning. Josh Jung hit a two-out single, then Grant Little doubled to right field. Jung advanced to third and was tagged out at home, the 10-0 score holding up after replay review reversed the initial call at the plate for the third out of the inning.

Stinson replaced by Davis to start the seventh, then Michael Davis tripled with two outs. Kennie Taylor was injured on the play, landing awkwardly on his right leg trying to limit the damage of the line drive. Cody Farhat followed that up with a RBI double to put Texas Tech on the board, 10-1.

The home team added another run in the eighth inning and Duke did the same as Loperfido picked up his third RBI of the day.

Monday’s 4 p.m. game will decide whether Duke joins North Carolina in Omaha or if its season ends and Texas Tech advances to the College World Series for the third time in five seasons. The Blue Devils have been to three CWS in their history.

Belgium vs Costa Rica

Belgium take on Costa Rica who are coming into this game having lost their last game 2-0 to England and it will be interesting to see how this game turns out.

The Central Americans have played every team in Belgium’s group and the Belgians will be hoping they can learn a thing or two in this game.

All the teams in group G have won against Costa Rica so far and Roberto Martinez’s men should complete the victories here. The Belgians drew against Portugal in their first warm up game before beating Egypt 3-0 last time out. The Belgians have an abundance of attacking talent and their defence is also solid.

Belgium have kept a clean sheet in 6 of their last 7 home games and they have not conceded a goal in their last four. They conceded just twice at home in the qualifiers, so it looks like Costa Rica are in for a tough night.

Costa Rica have lost four of their last five away games without scoring a goal and they lost without scoring against Tunisia and England. Belgium claimed a 1-0 win over Costa Rica 16 years ago and that clash is their most recent encounter.

Belgium vs Costa Rica Preview

Competition – International Friendly

Stadium – King Baudouin Stadium

Date: 11th June 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Watch Belgium vs Costa Rica Live Stream Online: Costa Rica vs Belgium: Time, Live Stream and TV Schedule, Belgium play their final friendly before FIFA World Cup 2018 on Thursday as they face Costa Rica at Elland Road in Leeds.

The match will be manager Gareth Southgate’s final chance to see his players in match action before their opening game of the tournament against Tunisia on Monday, June 18.

Costa Rica will play Belgium and Belgium before they head to Russia. Oscar Ramirez’s team have been drawn in Group E and will face Brazil, Switzerland and Serbia.

Belgium go into the game fresh from a 2-1 win over Nigeria. While the result will be welcomed, the performance still left plenty of questions.

The Three Lions were excellent in the first half as they surged into a 2-0 lead. However, they wilted after the break and allowed Nigeria back into the game.

Tom Adams at Eurosport highlighted the issues:

Southgate will hope his side can maintain their form for the whole 90 minutes against Costa Rica. The Belgium coach has said the team must learn from the win over Nigeria, per Jack Rosser at the Evening Standard:

“We didn’t come to terms with their change in formation, work out their midfield quickly enough, and they had a long passage of possession and they got in behind us. In general, we can improve on what we did. That five- or six-minute spell we have to learn from because, in a tournament, that’s enough to put you out.”

Costa Rica should prove another interesting test for Belgium. They finished second in CONCACAF qualifying behind Mexico and ahead of Panama.

Los Ticos made it all the way to the quarter-finals of World Cup 2014. They finished top of their group ahead of Uruguay, Belgium and Italy, before being knocked out on penalties by the Netherlands—they drew 0-0 with the Three Lions in Brazil.

Belgium Places Still Up For Grabs

Southgate is expected to make changes to his side for Thursday’s game, which should allow some players a chance to make a late claim for a place in the team.

Jamie Vardy, Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold could all make the starting lineup at Elland Road, according to Jason Burt at the Telegraph.

Southgate has also refused to confirm that Jordan Pickford will be his first-choice goalkeeper, despite the Everton man starting against Nigeria and being handed the No. 1 shirt.

“We’ll give consideration to who plays in goal against Costa Rica over the next 24 or 36 hours,” he said, per the Press Association (h/t Mail Online).

Stoke City’s Jack Butland and Burnley’s Nick Pope are the two other goalkeepers in the squad and will be hoping for a run out.

Belgium will be expected to dominate the game, but they will need to show creativity to break down Costa Rica. The players will be aware that an eye-catching display on Thursday could boost their chances of earning a starting spot at the World Cup.

UEFA Champions League Final 2018

The UEFA Champions League Final 2018 will be played between Liverpool FC (England) and Real Madrid (Spain) on Saturday, May 26.

Real Madrid behind its star player, Cristiano Ronaldo is going for a third consecutive Champions League crown (and fourth in five years). In all, Real Madrid has won the Champions League title 12 times (the competition goes back to the 1955-56 season). This is the 16th time Real Madrid has played in the Champions League final.

Liverpool behind a breakout season for Mohamed Salah is in the Champions League final for the first time since 2007. Liverpool last won the competition in 2005, and is a five-time Champions League winner all-time.

Here’s everything else you need to know for the matchup:

TIME, TV INFO: Kickoff – 2:30 p.m. ET, FOX. Streaming online on FOX Sports Go. Pregame coverage will begin at 2 p.m. ET on FOX.

LOCATION: NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium, Kiev, Ukraine

Real Madrid dominance

No club has won more UEFA Champions League crowns. In fact, no other team is even close to matching Real Madrid’s 12 Champions League triumphs; AC Milan is second with seven, while Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Liverpool each have five. Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice en route to Man of the Match honors in Real Madrid’s Champions League final win over Juventus last year, and look for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to be a focal point for Los Blancos on Saturday.

Liverpool’s rise

Under manager Jürgen Klopp, Liverpool has returned to prominence in Europe. Klopp who has been with Liverpool since 2015 has prior experience in leading a team to the Champions League final. In 2013, he delivered Borussia Dortmund to the brink of European glory, only to lose to German rival Bayern Munich. Klopp’s team features Mohamed Salah, who scored a record 32 goals in 36 Premier League games this season.

Real Madrid vs Liverpool: Live Stream, TV Channel

The curtain will come down on the European season in Kiev on Saturday as Real Madrid vs Liverpool face off in the Champions League final for the right to be crowned continental kings.

Reigning champions Madrid are chasing their third title in a row – and their 13th of all time – while five-time winners Liverpool are in the final for the first time since 2007, when they lost to AC Milan.

The Reds overcame Roma in the semi-final to book their trip to Ukraine, marginally edging a remarkable 13-goal tie, with Los Blancos narrowly beating Bayern Munich in the other tie.
