“If you can’t accept rules, stop playing cricket!”- Furious fans slam N Jagadeesan for flashing ‘middle finger’ after being run-out in TNPL 2022

Published

on

The Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2022 got off to a fiery start with the clash between Chepauk Super Gillies and Nellai Royal Kings on Thursday, June 23. Two Tamil Nadu stars, Baba Aparajith and N Jagadeesan, engaged in a heated exchange. Aparajith ran out Jagadeesan at the non-striker’s end as the latter backed up too much.

Even though the bowler was well within his rights to whip the bails off, Jagadeesan wasn’t a happy man. He showed his middle finger multiple times before walking back furious into the dugout.

Fans on Twitter slammed N Jagadeesan for showing his frustration despite being run out fair and square. They felt Aparajith was well within his rights to run him out. The off-spinner had pulled out of his run-up once to give Jagadeesan an indirect warning.

Here are some of the reactions:

Baba Aparajith runs out Jagadeesan at non striker’s end on his delivery stride. Out as per the laws. Jagadeesan was not too pleased at all

Ashwin, Aparajith – name starts with A.Jos, Jagadeesan – name starts with J.the cases of bowler running out batsman at the non Striker’s end in IPL and TNPL. 😀 😀

N Jagadeesan showing the middle finger for a legitimate form of dismissal. Absolute shame.#TNPL2022

Let’s get this right. Baba Aparajith runs out N Jagadeesan as per laws of the game in the #TNPL2022 opening match #TNPL

N Jagadeesan is run out at the non-striker’s end for leaving the crease early. High time this mode of dismissal is normalised. #TNPL2022

hahaha. @aparajithbaba ran out Jagadeesan in the bowler’s end walking out of the crease as he was on his bowling stride.. jaggy walks off showing middle finger.. looked silly on TV… 😀 😀

Hope Jagadeesan is banned in SMAT next season for showing middle finger in TNPL

@CricCrazyJohns And he shows middle finger to aparajith after that dismissal 🤐


TNPL delivers a Super Over in the first game itself

The TNPL 2022 opener between the Nallai Royal Kings (NRK) and the Chepauk Super Gillies (CSG) produced a thrilling finish. The game went right down to a Super Over.

Batting first, NRK were in deep trouble at 27/3 at one stage. However, L Suryaprakash and Sanjay Yadav got together and steadied the ship. While Suryaprakash played second-fiddle, Yadav played an incredible knock of 87* off just 47 balls. His stunning innings took his team to 184/4 in their 20 overs.

In reply, CSG skipper Kaushik Gandhi held the fort from one end. However, wickets tumbled from the other end and the game got really interesting towards the end. Harish Kumar played a fantastic cameo to take the game to the Super Over.

N Jagadeesan got another chance to bat and pumped a six straight down the ground. However, his team scored just nine runs and that wasn’t really going to challenge NRK as they registered their first points of the season.

Published

on

The Indian Cement Company Ground in Tirunelveli hosted the fourth match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League 2022 between Salem Spartans and Nellai Royal Kings on Saturday (June 25).

After being asked to bat first, the Salem Spartans batters never got going as they only managed to score 149 in their 20 overs, losing seven wickets. Daryl Ferrario top-scored with 60* and was well-supported by R Kavin, who scored 48. The Royal Kings’ bowlers bowled brilliantly, with Athisayaraj Davidson and NS Harish finishing with two wickets each.

The batters then stepped up and backed up their bowlers as they contributed and helped them chase down the total. A fantastic cameo from G Ajitesh (48* off 25 balls) helped the side get across the line with 14 balls to spare to win the game by five wickets. G Kishoor finished with two wickets but his side failed to defend the total.

Uthirasamy Sasidev follows Suryaprakash in the list with 73 runs in two games. The right-handed batter represents Chepauk Super Gillies and has looked good in both outings so far. Chepauk Super Gillies skipper Kaushik Gandhi and S Harish Kumar are in the third and fourth positions as both have scored 65 runs so far.

Sanjay Yadav of Nellai Royal Kings leads the most wickets column with three scalps to his name in two games. He has bowled brilliantly for the Nellai Royal Kings and averages 17 with the ball. Yadav also bowls economical spells and is certainly a player to look out for in the competition.

The Chepauk Super Gillies have lost both games but R Alexander has been impressive for them. He went wicketless in the first game but stepped up on Saturday as he picked up three wickets, conceding only 20 runs in his four overs. He sits in the second position on the most wickets list.

Kiran Akash, NS Harish, and V Athisayaraj Davidson have each picked up three wickets and are behind R Alexander in the list. They will all look to keep performing in a similar fashion in the upcoming games.

Report: Jimmy Garoppolo to start throwing soon; trade market could heat up

Published

on

Jimmy Garoppolo’s recovery from shoulder surgery is going well, and the San Francisco 49ers quarterback will throw over the next few weeks, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

Fowler also says that Garoppolo might be able to pass a physical relatively soon, which would cause the trade market for the quarterback to kick back into gear.

Garoppolo, 30, started 45 games over the last five seasons with the 49ers, but the team is set to move on with 2021 third overall pick Trey Lance inheriting the starting role. Last season, Garoppolo threw 20 touchdown passes with 12 interceptions in the regular season and helped lead the team to the NFC Championship Game.

San Francisco general manager John Lynch said that the team was “close in some discussions” to trade Garoppolo earlier in the offseason, but those talks came to a “screeching halt” when the quarterback opted for surgery in March. 

Since then, several teams have addressed their quarterback vacancies. One of those teams is the Indianapolis Colts, who were reportedly in talks to acquire Garoppolo before landing Matt Ryan in a deal with the Atlanta Falcons. Also on the trade market is Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, who has been linked to the Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers in rumors.
