A STUNNING knock from Rishabh Pant helped Delhi Daredevils to a huge IPL win over a Gujarat Lions side, whose play-off hopes are in tatters.Teenager Rishabh Pant played a masterful innings as his 97 helped Delhi Daredevils to a seven-wicket thumping and ended Gujarat Lions’ already slim IPL play-off hopes.Gujarat made the trip to Delhi knowing only four straight wins could realistically extend their season, but a fine 133-run stand from Suresh Raina (77) and Dinesh Karthik (65) propelled them to a hefty 208-7.But Pant, ably assisted by Sanju Samson (61), smashed nine sixes and six fours off 43 balls in a textbook display of Twenty20 cricket as the Daredevils recorded the second-highest run-chase in IPL history to move within five points of the top four with a match in hand.After the early losses of Brendon McCullum and Dwayne Smith, Raina made the most of being dropped on two by Shreyas Iyer to launch four sixes and five fours.Karthik was equally prolific and his knock came from just 34 balls, but – after Kagiso Rabada had made the most of confusion between the batsmen to remove Raina with a direct hit – he was dismissed courtesy of a stunning one-handed catch by a backtracking Corey Anderson at midwicket.Aaron Finch’s 27 off 19 and back-to-back sixes from Ravindra Jadeja (18 not out) at the end of the innings propelled the Lions to a fine position.However, Pant came to the wicket with reckless abandon and cleared the ropes four times inside five overs, Basil Thampi (1-40) and Pradeep Sangwan (1-43) the first to pick off by the 19-year-old.At the other end, Samson was playing his part in a majestic partnership, twice sending Ankit Soni for six.Pant was the main attraction, though, and he picked up 23 runs off a luckless James Faulkner (0-35) in the 11th over with his sublime ball-striking and excellent foot work helping him to three more sixes.Samson helped himself to a couple more maximums off Jadeja before taking on the left-armer once too many and skewing one to Faulkner at long-off in the 14th over.Pant picked up the slack in the same over and slogged one over long-on, but he fell agonisingly short of a century when he edged Thampi behind in the 15th.His masterclass had done the work, though, as Iyer (14 not out) and Anderson (18 not out) steered Delhi over the line.

Though the USC men’s volleyball team defeated Hope International in an out-of-conference game in straight sets — 25-20, 25-22, 25-21 — the victory was hard fought.Clean sweep· Freshman outside hitter Cristian Rivera finished with five kills on Thursday. The Trojans will face Hawai’i at home March 2. – Garry Chien | Daily TrojanJunior opposite hitter Maddison McKibbin — 11 kills, six digs and three blocks — and redshirt sophomore setter Chris Trefzger — two kills, 25 assists, four digs and seven blocks — led the Trojans with very strong statistical outings as the Royals hung around in each set.“[Coming into the game], we [wanted] to get Maddison [McKibbin] back in the flow of playing a game and Trefzger some experience setting,” coach Bill Ferguson said. “When talking to a setter, it’s not just going out and playing, it’s also knowing that we’re going to give him information on a timeout how to run the offense, and he responded pretty well to stuff like that.”Redshirt junior outside hitter Steven Mochalski contributed in a very good all-around performance, recording 10 kills, three assists, six digs and three blocks. But his true contributions on the court were invisible off the stat sheet.“Mochalski is one of those guys that quietly does everything well,” Ferguson said. “He’s the kind of guy that gets kills when teams think they got us where they want us; Mochalski comes out with a big swing.”The Trojans struggled to pull away in the first set until a long rally resulted in pushing the Trojans into the lead, 12 to 11. After that, the Trojans surged ahead of the Royals, leading 24-17, but needed to withstand a late mini-run before winning the first set 25-20.The second set was much tighter throughout, as the lead never exceeded more than three points. The Trojans fell behind late in the set, 17-18. But, USC managed to come back and steal the set late, 25-22.The third set started tumultuously for the Trojans, falling behind 4-7. But after a string of kills by McKibbin, USC took the lead 10-9 and assumed a dominant 22-15 lead. The Royals rallied late once again to push the game within four points, but the Trojans retained the lead through the set to seal the team’s seventh win of the season with a 25-21 third set.Ferguson mentioned before the match he wanted to incorporate the young players on the team, and Cristian Rivera was one that stood out.“[Rivera’s] a guy who had to sit out most of the fall because he was practicing twice a day” Ferguson said of his freshman outside hitter who plays for the Puerto Rican J National team. “Where most guys were getting a lot of training in the fall, Cristian was catching up. He’s a guy we expect big things from in our program in the future.”After Thursday’s match, the Trojans will hit the road and play the University of Pacific in Stockton, Calif., on Feb. 24 followed by a game at Stanford the following day when they will resume play in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation.Ferguson believed that the team must develop its mental toughness traveling to Pacific, to contest the active crowd. “The crowd at Pacific isn’t very big, but it knows its volleyball and can be a big factor,” he explained.The Trojans’ next game at the Galen Center will be on March 2 against Hawai’i.

On Day 2 (Thursday 22 March) in the Drake Suite, Smrha is set to feature on the Investment Panel, titled “where is the attractive risk?” More information about the event can be found at this link.

After the stunning reversal, the Angels were back to where things stood a week ago, with Brian Goodwin as their right fielder until highly regarded prospect Jo Adell is ready.Their rotation depth chart still includes Dylan Bundy, Griffin Canning, Andrew Heaney, Shohei Ohtani and Julio Teheran, with a secondary group including Jaime Barría, Dillon Peters, Felix Peña, Patrick Sandoval and José Suarez. After the Angels waited for days on the drama surrounding the Dodgers’ pursuit of Mookie Betts, the deal they believed they had struck might not be happening at all.The Angels had reportedly agreed to get slugging outfielder Joc Pederson and starter Ross Stripling from the Dodgers after both players were rendered surplus once the Dodgers got Betts and David Price from the Boston Red Sox.However, amid reports of the Dodgers getting Betts and Price in a reconfigured deal on Sunday, there were multiple reports that the Dodgers were no longer trading Pederson and Stripling to the Angels.As of Sunday night, it was unclear whether the deal was dead entirely, or just in need of changes in light of the altered Betts deal. Angels fail to take series in Oakland, lose in 10 innings The Angels had been set to trade infielder Luís Rengifo, who now has no apparent spot with the addition of Anthony Rendon to the infield. They were also reportedly going to acquire outfield prospect Andy Pages from the Dodgers. At least one other prospect was expected to go to the Dodgers in the reported agreement. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Angels manager Joe Maddon questions defensive metrics that rate Mike Trout poorly Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone In the big picture, the Dodgers still need to reduce some salary if they are to stay under the luxury tax threshold after taking on the salaries of Betts and Price. Pederson is set to make $7.75 million after losing his arbitration case, and Stripling will make $2.1 million. That’s nearly $10 million for players the Dodgers no longer need.They have no apparent place for Pederson to play with an outfield of Betts, Cody Bellinger and A.J. Pollock. Chris Taylor and Kiké Hernandez, who can both play the infield as well, also crowd their outfield. Stripling had become more of a swingman than a starter in the Dodgers’ stacked rotation.While that all pointed to the deal still making sense for the Dodgers, there was one theory floated that Angels owner Arte Moreno was frustrated by the delay and pulled out of the deal.Related Articles Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire
