Stoke concerns over Begovic fitness

first_img Hughes told the club’s website, www.stokecityfc.com: “Asmir is the big worry for us at the moment, because of a knock he has picked up to his thigh on Tuesday. “He has a bit of bleeding in there, so we need to nurse him and then assess him tomorrow to see where he is at. “It is a bit of a concern because he has been outstanding for us this year, but we will see what happens over the course of the next 24 hours.” Sorensen, 37, has been restricted to domestic cup ties in the past two seasons but Hughes has no doubts over the Dane’s readiness to play. He said: “If Asmir isn’t ready then I will have no qualms in throwing Thomas into the team. “He is a top keeper in his own right who has an abundance of experience behind him.” The Hull game will come too soon for midfielder Matthew Etherington despite his return to training this week after a back injury. Hughes said: “Matty has joined the squad again in training this week but I think it will be more worthwhile letting him recuperate back here this weekend, rather than sitting in a coach for three hours. Manager Mark Hughes has revealed the Bosnia international is doubtful for the KC Stadium clash after suffering the injury in training. Thomas Sorensen, who has not started a league game since the final day of the 2011-12 season, is on standby to replace him. Press Association “We will hopefully get him involved in the under-21 game for a spell tomorrow afternoon, which will help him build up his match fitness again.” Full-back Erik Pieters is fit again after a groin strain but Hughes may opt to retain Marc Muniesa, who impressed in the Dutchman’s absence in last week’s shock win over Chelsea. Hughes said: “It’s a very nice problem to have two quality players battling for one position. “Erik has been fantastic this season, but Marc was outstanding against Chelsea. It’s one that I will have to sleep on.” Stoke goalkeeper Asmir Begovic could miss Saturday’s Barclays Premier League trip to Hull with a thigh problem.last_img read more

Cricket News Jasprit Bumrah Reveals He Relies On Advice From Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami To Hone Skills

first_imgJasprit Bumrah took his fifth five-wicket haul in Tests.Bumrah became the third Indian after Harbhajan and Pathan to take Test hat-trick.Bumrah has taken fifers in South Africa, Australia, England and West Indies. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Jasprit Bumrah has had a magnificent start to his Test career. The Gujarat pacer is the only Asian bowler to take a five-wicket haul in South Africa, England, Australia and West Indies on his first tour. Bumrah is the quickest Indian bowler to get to 50 wickets and his display of bowling in the West Indies has gladdened fast bowling purists who see this as a revival in the art of fast bowling. In the second Test at Antigua, Bumrah became the third Indian after Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan to take a hat-trick in Tests and he ended with a haul of 6/27, his best in Tests. Bumrah has revealed that he relies on the advice of seniors like Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami and stated that the current bowling unit is very happy. “Ishant has played a lot more cricket than all of us, (Mohammed) Shami has played a lot, I’m the new guy, so I try and ask questions. I ask them, they’ve played here before, so ‘what works in different conditions?’ ‘If the wicket is not doing anything what should we do?’ What different plans are to be there. You have to assess the wicket, what are the conditions, what works here. Here the wicket has a lot more bounce. In such bouncy wickets you can become greedy and bowl short but you shouldn’t do that. You should look to bowl in good areas and create pressure and try and bowl full. That was the plan going into the first innings,” Bumrah said. In the first innings, Virat Kohli was awestruck by Bumrah’s bowling and it was his instinct to take the review which helped Bumrah achieve history. “The captain’s confidence gives you a lot of self-belief. When you bowl, you can express yourself, you can try whatever you want to do. That gives you a lot of confidence, not only me but each and every bowler is being backed by him so much. As a bowling unit we are very happy and then we have the freedom to do what we want,” Bumrah said. Also Read | India vs West Indies 1st Test: Virat Kohli surpasses Sourav Ganguly, equals MS Dhoni with Antigua winThe right-arm pacer said bowling with the Dukes Ball in England had already given him practice to utilise the Duke Ball brilliantly on the Caribbean pitches which assisted pace bowling. Also Read | Jasprit Bumrah becomes second-fastest Indian to 100 ODI wickets in World Cup clash vs Sri Lanka”I played a lot of cricket in England, we played a lot of Test matches, we bowled with the duke ball. There is a lot of movement with the duke ball, you get a lot of confidence in outswing, inswing, whatever you’re trying. So, that experience helped me out,” Bumrah said.West Indies are currently 45/2 in their pursuit of 468 and Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team are all set to take a 2-0 lead in the Test series and end their tour on the ultimate high.center_img highlightslast_img read more
