India vs Sri Lanka: Cheteshwar Pujara’s stop-start Test career turns 50, but there’s a long way to go

India vs Sri Lanka: Cheteshwar Pujara’s stop-start Test career turns 50, but there’s a long way to go

Cheteshwar Pujara is on the verge of his 50th Test match for India. The landmark brings both a sense of sadness and relief. The boy wonder from Rajkot, the man who was the highest run-getter in 2006 U19 World Cup, the one who stormed the domestic scene with three triple hundreds in 2008, that guy should have played a few more Tests for India by now. But then we shouldn’t get too greedy. A pure Test cricket technician, almost a one of his kind batsman in this era lasting this…

ICC Women’s World Cup 2017: Crowning glory continues to elude a deserving career

It wasn’t quite Indian women’s cricket’s Balwinder Singh Sandhu moment, but it came close. Sandhu did it in the 1983 World Cup final, bowling a vicious delivery and knocking out Gordon Greenidge’s off-stump. Just three days ago, Jhulan Goswami bowled an away-goer to Meg Lanning in the Women’s World Cup semi final — arguably the ball of the tournament — that angled in and straightened after pitching, hitting the top of off. Lanning, the biggest star in women’s cricket — aptly nicknamed as the Megastar — went for a duck…

Morkel may put Test cricket first as career winds down

Morkel may put Test cricket first as career winds down

Morne Morkel could consider playing only one format of international cricket, and it may well be Tests, as he reaches the twilight of his career. At 32, Morkel considers his career “nearly finished” and will meet with CSA at the end of the ongoing tour to England to discuss his future. Unlike some of his senior team-mates such as AB de Villiers and Faf du Plessis, Morkel does not appear to be eyeing the 2019 World Cup as a swansong, despite recent reappearances in the one-day team.

CEO: Career vs. children is the wrong mindset—it’s not a trade off

CEO: Career vs. children is the wrong mindset—it’s not a trade off

Recently, I sat in the back of an elementary school classroom in southeast London, on a Saturday morning. As I watched a group of beginner guitar players, including Isak, my five year old grandson, I frantically scribbled down the teacher’s fingering for the intro chords of “Uptown Funk.” At the end of class, my mind raced to a question I have occasionally considered over the years: “Did I sacrifice experiences such as this with my own children, because of devotion to my career, and would I do it differently a…

Lewis Hamilton unsure about what future holds in F1 career

Lewis Hamilton has hinted he could walk away from Formula One at the end of the season, while also indicating it was highly unlikely. The triple world champion, so often an enigma shrouded in contradiction, offered little certainty after winning the British Grand Prix for a record-equalling fifth time. What came across strongly, however, was that the Mercedes driver felt in the form of his life and would always want to be a winner. “Apart from being with my family, the happiest moment I ever have is when I’ve got…

This is the No. 1 trait that will kill your career

This employee routinely claims to be receiving unfair treatment, and is never satisfied with their work environment — and it’s all their boss’ fault. “Are you a boss hater?” Welch says. “If you are, watch out.” You may think you’re being subtle, but the boss can tell.
