Sports desk. Former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman believes that Bhuvneshwar Kumar will play an important role in India’s campaign in the T20 World Cup this year and the workload of this needs to prioritize management. After a long break due to injury, Bhubaneswar returned to India’s T20 team. He suffered a thigh muscle injury during the Indian Premier League last year due to which he was ruled out of the IPL and then Australia tour. Laxman said in Star Sports’ Cricket Connected, ” I am very happy that Bhubaneswar regained fitness as he is a very important bowler for India, especially in limited cricket.


He said that apart from Jasprit , if anyone in the Indian bowling line-up has experience of bowling in both new ball and overs, then he is Bhubaneswar. Laxman said, “He is a very important member, we have to take care of Bhuvneshwar Kumar as he is going to play a very important role in the World Cup in November.” Uttar Pradesh fast bowler Bhuvneshwar played his last T20 International match in December 2019. Laxman said that for him to be 100 percent fit, I feel that the workload and injury of Bhuvneshwar Kumar should give priority and importance to the management.


Laxman feels that Bhubaneswar will not get to play more than two matches in the five-match T20 International series against England starting on Friday in Ahmedabad. Laxman preferred wicketkeeper batsman Lokesh Rahul over Shikhar Dhawan to open the innings with Rohit Sharma. He said that the selection of the second is a difficult question. Rohit Sharma is sure to be selected in limited overs cricket. I will go with Lokesh Rahul because in the last few months and years I feel that whenever the Indian team management has fielded Lokesh Rahul as an opener, he has done well at that place. Dhawan is expected to play in the series as a reserve opener despite good performances in the IPL and Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Granada vs Real Madrid, La Liga 2020-21: Marcelo Dropped From Squad After Argument With Zinedine Zidane

Real Madrid have a number of injury conerns in their defence and their backline for the clash against Granada was shortened even further after star defender Marcelo was left off the squad list by manager Zinedine Zidane despite being fully fit. It is understood that the Brazilian full-back was axed from the team for Thursday’s game in La Liga due to an argument with the manager. Real Madrid Sweats it Out For La Liga 2021 Match Against Granada as the Title Race Still Remains Open.

Marcelo, who has been Real Madrid’s main left-back for over a decade, has been relegated to a back-up role by Zinedine Zidane since the arrival of Ferlan Mendy at the club. However, after the Frenchman was ruled out for the rest of the season with an injury, the Brazilin was expected to replace him in the team but has seen himself being excluded from the squad for the crucial encounter against Granada at Los Carmenes. Ronald Koeman Doubtful About Barcelona Clinching La Liga 2021 Title After 3-3 Against Levante.

Real Madrid Squad

According to a report from Goal, Marcelo’s exclusion from the Real Madrid squad for the Granada encounter in La Liga was due to an argument with manager Zinedine Zidane. It is understood that the Brazilian is frustrated with his depleting role and the manager’s tactics and line-up decisions in recent months with the issue to head at Tuesday’s training session.

The left-back has been starved of minutes this season as he is 15th in the Real Madrid squad for total minutes this term after playing the majority of the campaign as the back-up for Ferlan Mendy. It is understood that the Brazilian isn’t the only veteran frustrated with Zinedine Zidane’s tactics and there is a growing concern that the manager might leave at the end of the season.

Real Madrid will have to count on youngster Miguel Gutierrez to step up in the absence of the first-choice left-backs in the important encounter against Granada as they look to keep the pressure on leaders Atletico Madrid. With three games left in the season, Zidane men are five points behind in the La Liga title race and will be aiming to cut the gap.

Cristiano Ronaldo Creates History After Scoring In Juventus' 3-1 Win Over Sassuolo in Serie A 2020-21 Fixture

Cristiano Ronaldo once again created history for Juventus as he netted in the 3-1 victory over Sassuolo on Wednesday. The Portuguese star netted his 100th goal for the club as he managed to get himself on the score-sheet just before half-time as Andrea Pirlo’s men still remain in contention for Champions League qualification into the final stretch of the season. Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala Score 100th Goal To Keep Bianconeri in Top-Four Race (Watch Goal Highlights).

With his against Roberto de Zerbi’s men, Cristiano Renaldo became the fastest player to reach the 100-goal mark for Juventus, achieving the landmark milestone in just 131 appearances and becoming the first player in the Italian club’s history to net a century of goals in less than three seasons.

Prior to Wednesday, only Omar Sivori and Roberto Baggio had required less than five seasons to reach the 100-goal mark. However, Cristiano Ronaldo surpassed the two, reaching the landmark in just less than three seasons having joined the Bianconeri in 2018-19 from Real Madrid on a record transfer fee.

100 Goals For Juventus

With his strike against Sassuolo, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner became the first player in history to score more than 100 goals with three different clubs and his national team, having achieved the feat first with Manchester United (118 goals) than Real Madrid (450 goals) followed by Portugal (103 goals).

Unique Feat

Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract with Juventus expires next season and at the moment there are no talks about his renewal as there is uncertainty over the Portuguese star’s future at the club following an underwhelming campaign as this season saw the Bianconeri unable to defend the league title for the first time in 10 years and battling for Champions League qualification.

London, May 13: Porto is set to be confirmed as host of the Champions League between Chelsea and Manchester City after Portuguese authorities have the return of supporters to stadiums.

UEFA is planning to announce by the end of the week that the 50,000-capacity Estádio do Dragão will be used for the May 29 showpiece with thousands of from both English clubs set to be allowed into , people with knowledge of the planning told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

UEFA is hoping for more than 10,000 people to be at the Porto stadium after having to move the final from Istanbul to Portugal for a second successive year.

The initial backup plan had been to use Wembley Stadium in London but talks with the British government stalled on Monday over being able to secure quarantine waivers for the guests and broadcasters required by UEFA to attend the game.

Portugal is on England’s “green list” of 12 low-risk territories where people can travel from next Monday without having to quarantine upon their return, making it easier for City and Chelsea fans to attend the game.

Istanbul became impractical for the Champions League final once the British government announced on Friday that Turkey was being placed on the “red list” of countries requiring anyone returning to enter mandatory hotel quarantine for 10 days. Premier League 2020-21: Emile Smith Rowe Scores Sole Goal As Arsenal Beat Chelsea 1–0.

UEFA on Wednesday announced that the referee for the final will be Antonio Mateu Lahoz, who sent Pep Guardiola off during a game three years ago.

Mateu Lahoz has officiated in six matches in the elite European club competition this season.
