Twitter reacts to ‘Prophetic’ Rishabh Pant predicting Tim Southee’s dismissal

Published

Years after manifesting for a wicketkeeper as prophetic as MS Dhoni, Indian fans’ prayers were answered with Rishabh Pant’s prophetic moment predicting Tim Southee’s dismissal. The wicketkeeper had asked the all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja to bowl the length, which resulted in Southee’s wicket.

India were nearly there to bat in the second innings when Mohammed Shami had accounted for all-rounder Colin de Grandhomme. However, the famous Kiwi tail, comparison of Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner and Trent Boult wagged and wagged with Kane Williamson to put India under extreme pressure. So much so, at one point, New Zealand were 162/6, chasing India’s first-innings total of 217.

However, once Jamieson got going, with a six, there was no stopping, as the others around him, Southee, Williamson and Boult were inspirational with their own performance. After Jamieson holed out to the deep fielder, off Shami’s bowling, Southee ensured that the runs were flowing with some extravagant shots of his own.

At one point, it looked like the Kiwi pacer would not walk back to the pavilion without scoring a half-century against the Indian bowling unit. However, that’s exactly when the Indian skipper Virat Kohli brought back his ace spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who accounted for Neil Wagner. Soon after that, Kohli also brought his left-arm spinner, Jadeja, who was hit out of the park by Southee.

Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant from behind the stumps asked the all-rounder to bowl the same length he bowled to Colin de Grandhomme. As prophetic as it sounds, the wicketkeeper’s little piece of advice had resulted in immediate success for India, as Southee was bowled off the next ball to hand the BlackCaps a lead of 32 runs, going into the crucial second innings.

RISHABH PANT IS THE MASTERMIND!

Daniel Norris trade for the Brewers is nothing to phone home about

Milwaukee supporters sure were hoping for some better news, as Norris is currently sporting a 5.83 ERA this season. That’s not the kind of production you want from a reliever, which is why the Brewers receive a C grade for this deal.

Meanwhile, for Detroit, they’re getting a B+ for moving Norris. In return, Tigers beat writer Jason Beck is reporting Detroit is receiving 21-year-old pitching prospect, Reese Olson.

Blue Jays acquiring Twins ace Jose Berrios for Martin, Woods Richardson

Published

on

The Toronto Blue Jays made a big splash hours before Friday’s MLB Trade Deadline, acquiring right-handed starter Jose Berrios from the Minnesota Twins, Sportsnet’s Ben Nicholson-Smith confirms.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic was first to report the agreement.

Nicholson-Smith reports that the Blue Jays are sending No. 2 prospect Austin Martin and No. 4 prospect Simeon Woods Richardson to the Twins in the trade.

Berrios, who is under team control through the 2022 season, was one of the most sought-after starters on the trade market. He has 3.48 ERA and 126 strikeouts in 20 starts for the Twins this season. The two-time All-Star has spent his entire six-year career with the Twins and outside his rookie season he has never had an ERA above 4.00.

The move gives the Blue Jays a third ace starter to join Robbie Ray, Alek Manoah and Cy Young finalist Hyun-Jin Ryu. It also is the latest blockbuster move in the AL East arms race after the Yankees, Red Sox and Rays all made trades in recent days to add power bats to their lineups.

The Blue Jays enter play Friday, their first home game at the Rogers Centre in nearly two years, fourth in the division with a 51-48 record. They are 9.5 games back of the Red Sox for first in the division and 4.5 games out a wild card spot.
