Since Darling’s first six in 1898, batsmen and the game of cricket have evolved in a major way. The advent of ODIs in 1971 made power-hitting the essential tool of survival in cricket while the explosion of Twenty20 and many global leagues have made six-hitting the norm for entertainment. In ODIs, Shahid Afridi of Pakistan is the leading six-hitter with 351 sixes from 398 games. He is the only batsman to hit over 300 sixes in the ODI format. For India, MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma are the leading six-hitters.Read More | Cricket South Africa’s official Twitter handle hackedIn Twenty20 Internationals, Chris Gayle of West Indies and Martin Guptill of New Zealand are the ultimate six-hitters with 103 each. While Guptill achieved the feat in 76 games, Gayle has taken just 56 games for this feat.In Tests, only players in history have scored over 100 sixes in the format. Adam Gilchrist of Australia was the first player in history to reach 100 sixes during the Test match against Sri Lanka in Hobart in 2007. In 2016, Brendon McCullum shattered Gilchrist’s record to achieve the most sixes in Test history. In his final game in Christchurch against Australia, McCullum blasted a century off just 54 balls, the fastest in Tests and his 145 off 79 balls included 21 fours and six sixes, which took him past Gilchrist’s tally. In the second innings, he hit another six to finish on 107 sixes as he ended his career in style.For India, Virender Sehwag has the most sixes with 91 in 104 Tests while in Twenty20 Internationals, Rohit has hit 98 sixes in 90 games and he has a chance to go past 100 in the upcoming three-match series against New Zealand. Interestingly, no batsman has hit over 100 sixes in all three formats. Gayle is the nearest with 98 sixes in Tests but it will be interesting whether the West Indies dasher will play another Test. New Delhi: The six is one of the most important and entertaining numbers in the game of cricket. Fans throng to the stadium to see sixes which sail over the boundary ropes and into the stands. The Twenty20 format, the shortest in this game, was built upon the promise of big sixes on a consistent basis. For a batter, the six is considered the ultimate number as it showcases his/her attacking prowess and big-hitting ability. However, for cricket fans, the common question is when was the first six ever hit in cricket? The answer is today. On January 14, about 121 years ago, the first-ever six in cricket was hit in the 55th Test match which was ever-played.Joe Darling, playing for Australia in the Test match against England in Adelaide in 1898, hit a shot that sailed out of the Adelaide Oval. Interestingly, any hit that would go over the boundary at that time was considered five runs instead of six but the rule was later changed to make it six runs. This was the first six ever hit in Test cricket without the aid of overthrows. Things became even better for Darling as he hit a magnificent 178 and the knock included 26 fours and three sixes. Significantly, he notched up his century by hitting another six as Australia won by an innings and 13 runs as they won the five-match series 4-1.Read More | Jadhav shares a cup of tea with Dhoni, Dhawan, takes a ‘subtle dig’ For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.

Published on February 1, 2018 at 12:20 am Contact David: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments Two seasons ago, Anna Shkudun was Syracuse’s star. She was featured at the top of the Orange’s lineup, tallied 13 singles wins and became the first SU player since 1996 to be invited to the NCAA singles tournament before ending the season ranked 64th nationally.The following November, Shkudun underwent left knee surgery. While her teammates and coaches knew she would spend most of the upcoming season at less than 100 percent, nobody expected her to struggle like she did. The Energodar, Ukraine native spent her second year of eligibility at SU laboring through knee discomfort and registered a lowly 2-13 singles record, the worst on the team.“My knee was bothering me so much,” Shkudun said. “I had a lot of limitations. I could not do a lot of jumps or runs, movements to the side, or bend my knees a lot.”A season later, now in her third year of eligibility, Shkudun is “just under 100 percent,” she said. But with a solidified one-two duo in Gabriela Knutson and Miranda Ramirez, she knows her time at the top of the Syracuse (3-0) lineup is likely over. Instead of worrying solely about her on-court contributions, Shkudun, a team captain, has embraced a leadership role while continuing to physically prepare herself for competition.Still recovering from the surgery during the 2017 season, Shkudun contributed for a struggling SU team. Shkudun’s first three appearances of the 2017 season came in doubles, where she partnered with either Masha Tritou or Gabriela Knutson to tally three straight wins against Virginia, Buffalo and Brown. Against both Brown and Virginia, Shkudun was a part of Syracuse’s only wins in the meet.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe following match against Boston College, Shkudun made her season debut in singles at the No. 1 slot. She lost, 3-6, 0-6, marking the first of 13 defeats in her next 15 singles matches. Unlike in doubles, Shkudun ran to all quadrants of the court to cover holes formerly filled by her partner. This put additional stress on her knee and tired her out much faster than in past singles matches. Soon, Shkudun’s poor results and slow recovery began to affect her.“It affected me a little bit mentally,” Shkudun said. “When you know that you can’t do better than your body allows, it hurts you mentally.”While she continued to struggle in singles play, Shkudun remained steady in doubles, where she posted a 6-6 record with her primary partner, Dina Hegab. In doubles play, Shkudun stayed on the baseline, only moving side-to-side when it was absolutely necessary. When standing still, she applied as little pressure to her left knee as possible, Shkudun said.Hegab does not think the success of the duo was harmed by her partner’s injury. Because Shkudun stayed on the baseline and avoided moving forward or side-to-side, she played the entire match without putting too much strain on her knee.“She never showed to me on the court that she was hurting,” Hegab said. “She didn’t take away from our confidence as a team.”Since the Orange’s first round loss to Louisville in the ACC Tournament on April 26, Shkudun has prepared both on her own and with SU’s training staff for her final season. Head coach Younes Limam also named Shkudun a team captain, as he feels her experience and leadership qualities can help the team when she is not on the court, he said.In three team matches this season, Shkudun has recorded four wins, two in doubles and two in singles. While she still experiences some minor limitations, her mobility is far better than it was last season, she said. When the Orange faced Colgate on Jan. 26, Shkudun remained on the sidelines and provided support for her teammates. During breaks in play, she approached her teammates and gave instruction.When healthy, Anna Shkudun’s tennis ability helped her achieve something no other SU player had since 1996. Since, it has been a long, painful and frustrating journey. She’s almost back to full health. In the meantime, she’ll keep helping her team in anyway possible.“We do believe she is going to contribute a lot,” Limam said about Shkudun. “And not just by playing.” Facebook Twitter Google+
Trojan Baseball closed out its 2018 regular season by dropping two out of three games to the Cal State Northridge Matadors at Dedeaux Field last weekend. Junior infielder Dillon Paulson totalled 10 home runs in his 2018 season. Emily Smith | Daily TrojanIn Thursday’s series opener, the Trojans fell to the Matadors 1-2 in a 10-inning affair. Both teams scored in the second inning. The Trojans immediately responded to the Matadors’ score with a run from junior third baseman Brandon Perez off a groundout to tie the game. The 1-1 score would hold into extra innings.In the 10th inning, CSUN redshirt junior outfielder Joey Cooper opened the inning with a single to right field. He would advance to second base on a sacrifice bunt and proceed to third on a groundout. A Trojan throwing error allowed Cooper to advance across the plate, granting the 2-1 lead to CSUN. Consequently, the Trojans were unable to match the Matadors score in the bottom of the 10th inning.USC freshman pitcher Kyle Hurt threw 7.1 innings, to be relieved by fellow freshman pitcher John Beller. CSUN junior pitcher Walker Armstrong tossed the first 7.0 innings, and senior Hayden Shenefield pitched for the rest of the game.USC looked to turn the series around on Friday night with a second chance against the Matadors. CSUN drew first blood in the first inning with a five-run performance that the Men of Troy could not match. Senior left fielder Albee Weiss hit a two-run home run that contributed to CSUN’s early dominating lead. Trojan junior starter Quentin Longrie was replaced by freshman Isaac Esqueda for 4 innings, followed by sophomore Chris Clarke who finished the game. USC tried to fight against its first inning deficit but only mustered one run in the second inning and two runs in the third inning. The Men of Troy ultimately fell 3-9 in game two. On Saturday, the Trojans took advantage of their third and final chance by defeating the Matadors 8-4 on senior day. The offense was headlined by junior center fielder Lars Nootbaar’s three-run homer and junior first baseman Dillon Paulson’s two home runs.Redshirt sophomore Kaleb Murphy contributed to the win with a two-run single to knot the score in the fifth inning. Junior pitcher Solomon Bates dominated on the mound for 7.0 innings. Wegman threw the eighth inning, making his first appearance in about 11 weeks, followed by Beller, who tossed the final inning to close the win for Bates.“It’s been huge going out on Sundays and being able to salvage series or even win series with [Bates],” Paulson said. “He’s given us his all the whole year and it was nothing different today.”USC concluded its 2018 season with a 26-28 record. This marks the third straight season that the Trojan ball club has failed to achieve a winning record. However, the team’s young roster looks hopeful for the upcoming 2019 season.“It was a great way to send [the seniors] off with a win,” head coach Dan Hubbs said after the game. “Our guys are learning how to win. It’s a young staff and that bodes well moving forward. The guys know they need to get a little bit stronger to withstand the whole season. I’m excited for the future of the program. Big things are coming.”

TEMPE, Ariz. — A day after the Angels revealed their plan to give Shohei Ohtani a late start as a pitcher, Ohtani said it was not a concession he needed.“I was getting prepared to start on Opening Day, but if that is what the team wants me to do, then I’ll be prepared to delay my debut,” Ohtani said through his interpreter after the first official workout of the spring on Wednesday. “I don’t see any problems.”Ohtani finished his rehab from Tommy John surgery in December, three months later than scheduled because of knee surgery. The Angels decided to give him more rest, and also preserve his innings for later in the season, so they are opting to have him wait until mid-May to begin pitching in major league games.Ohtani said he “probably could’ve made it (by Opening Day), but they told me a while ago that I’d be waiting until mid-May, so that’s where my mindset is right now.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Also on Wednesday, Major League Baseball officially released its 2020 rule changes, including the two-way player designation that essentially applies only to Ohtani.Because Ohtani qualifies as a two-way player, he does not count against the limit of 13 pitchers that a team can carry on its 26-man roster.INJURY UPDATESPitcher Félix Peña, who had knee surgery last August, said he is not sure if he will be ready for Opening Day.“I don’t have a date yet,” he said through an interpreter. “I’m not too certain, but I’m working hard for (Opening Day).”Peña has been throwing off a mound.
