The Spain international arrived to much fanfare in a £26million summer deal, but has so far failed to live up to the billing. Soldado’s struggles have saw him go two months without a goal before last weekend, when he netted his first in nine games as Tottenham beat Cardiff 1-0. Under-fire Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado can kick on after ending his goal drought, according to the man third in the club’s all-time list of goalscorers, Martin Chivers. “It is up to the club and the way they are thinking, but I am sure if Tim Sherwood gets good results before the end of the season, even if we just miss out on the Champions League, he has a very good chance to carry us on.” Spurs face a vital trip to Chelsea on Saturday before facing Benfica in the Europa League last 16 next week – a match they go into without their top continental scorer, Jermain Defoe. The 31-year-old England international netted five goals in the competition this season – which saw him overtake Chivers as Spurs’ all-time top goalscorer in Europe – but has now moved on to Major League Soccer side Toronto FC. “We needed a Jermain at the football club but he has been offered something he can’t turn down at his age,” Chivers said. “He has got a gold mine, struck lucky. I just hope he can go through the five years because he will be set for life. I am pleased for him. “Jermain has given us some fantastic years, he has scored many goals but I think he needs another challenge and I think that challenge over there is just right at his age.” The relief was palpable and fans’ favourite Chivers – a man who bagged 174 goals in 367 games for the north Londoners – is confident the Spaniard can still be a success at White Hart Lane, if he gets the right service. “Tim Sherwood has certainly done well with Emmanuel Adebayor to give him the confidence and make him grow happy enough to show us what he can do,” he told Press Association Sport. “He has persevered with Soldado and I feel very sorry for him as you can’t play him in every game when he is missing goals galore. “But we know than he can score goals – you don’t suddenly become a bad player, but you have to have the service and I don’t think we create that many chances.” The air of relief following’s Soldado strike against Cardiff was highlighted by the manner in which the team celebrated en masse with the forward. Chivers believes that moment captured the camaraderie cultivated by Sherwood, who he hopes is given a chance to make his mark on the job amidst talk of a summer departure. “I think the team spirit is very good under Tim Sherwood,” he said, speaking at the Football Legends Awards in aid of the Willow Foundation, which supports seriously ill 16-to-40-year-olds. “I have been working there for 24 years now and seen 14 managers come through. That is not conducive to success and I don’t want to see a 15th manager soon. Press Association

Kevin Pietersen scored a double ton helping England to a commanding 474/8 despite Praveen Kumar’s fiver on the second day of the first Test against India at Lord’s on Friday. Watch KP’s 200 and MSD bowl | Score At stumps, India were 17/0 in 6 overs with openers Gautam Gambhir and Abhinav Mukund at the crease.Though KP’s ton and Praveen Kumar’s five-wicket haul were the highlight of the day, it was India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who managed to grab the maximum eyeballs.And it wasn’t his keeping, but his bowling that hit the limelight – yes, the India skipper, and one of the most successful wicketkeepers that India has produced, bowled on the day.Soon after the lunch when a few overs were left for the new ball to be taken, Dhoni pulled off his gloves and took to bowling to fill the void left by Zaheer Khan, who pulled his hamstring on Thursday.The change also saw Rahul Dravid keeping wickets. And Dhoni could have sent Pietersen back into the pavilion if the DRS hadn’t ruled otherwise. On-field umpire Billy Bowden had given him out when the ball seemed to have nicked off his bat on to the keeper Rahul Dravid. But the reviews ruled against it and Pietersen went on to complete his ton.England started with the overnight score of 127/2 with Pietersen and Jonathan Trott in the middle.The clear and sunny sky aided the batsmen as the ball seemed to come on to the bat unlike Day 1 when the ball was swinging a lot more with the nip in the air following the morning showers.advertisementJonathan Trott and Kevin Pietersen were going strongly against India and the duo had put on 98 runs for the third wicket when Praveen Kumar struck.And it was the swing, albeit only a little, that did the trick. The ball kept low moved in and struck against Trott’s pads. He fell for 70 and India got the crucial third wicket on 160.Post Trott’s dismissal, Pietersen took up the challenge and went ahead consolidating the innings. At lunch England were cruising at 217/3 with Pietersen and Ian Bell in the middle.The second session saw Kumar strike again and this was post Dhoni’s cameo with the ball and Pietersen’s 18th Test ton.Kumar couldn’t get Pietersen, but he got rid of his partner Ian Bell with a ball that took the edge of his bat to land in keeper Dhoni’s gloves behind the stumps at 270/4. Bell scored 45.But Kumar’s over was far from over and two balls later he got England’s fifth wicket with new man Eoin Morgan walking back on a duck. From 270/3 England were down to 270/5, but they still had a good batsman in Matt Prior.At tea, England were sitting pretty on 305/5 with Pietersen and Matt Prior at the crease.The third session too was dominated by Pietersen even though Prior scored a fine 71 before going down to Kumar, who finished with a five-wicket haul with Stuart Broad being his last victim on the day.Kumar did take up the challenge in the absence of senior pro Zaheer Khan and claimed his maiden five-wicket haul at Lord’s, yet the Indians were missing their pace-spearhead.No wonder it had prompted ‘Captain Courageous’ to shun his gloves and take to bowling.

Watch Asia Cup Super Four, Ind vs Ban cricket match free live streaming online: Watch IND vs BAN ODI match Live on Hotstar, JioTV and Airtel TV – India were back to their best against Pakistan after a rusty performance in the Asia Cup opener against Hong Kong this week. India survived a scare to edge past Hong Kong by 26 runs before they thrashed Pakistan by 8 wickets.The twin victories helped India qualify for the Super Four stage of the tournament and in their first game they meet Bangladesh at the Dubai International Stadium on Friday.India have won their last 9 matches against Bangladesh in international cricket — six Twenty20 Internationals, two one day internationals and one Test.After the Bangladesh game, India and Pakistan meet again on Sunday before the Rohit Sharma-led side takes on Afghanistan on Tuesday.For India, the worry will be the team combination as Hardik Pandya has been ruled out of the tournament due to a lower injury, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar might be rested after back-to-back games against Hong Kong and Pakistan.Left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed may come in place of Bhuvneshwar but it is still not clear as to who would be Pandya’s replacement in the playing XI.Not just Pandya, all-rounder Axar Patel and paceman Shardul Thakur have also been ruled out of the tournament.Deepak Chahar has replaced Pandya while Ravindra Jadeja and Siddarth Kaul have come in place of Patel and Thakur.advertisementManish Pandey can add batting depth and looks a possible addition in the middle-order, while Kedar Jadhav’s off breaks are more than handy, and he is expected to take care of Pandya’s quota of overs.Openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan were amongst the runs in the first two matches while Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik looked solid against Pakistan.It is Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s batting form that could keep the team management worried.Dhoni hasn’t been firing and it will be interesting if Rohit promotes him in the batting order to give the veteran time to get settle down.While India’s rivalry with Pakistan is historic, the one against Bangladesh has been a bitter one post the controversial 2015 World Cup quarter-final at Melbourne.What time is India vs Bangladesh Asia Cup 2018 ODI?The game starts on 5:00 PM IST on September 21, Friday at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.What TV channel and live stream is the India vs Bangladesh Asia Cup 2018 ODI Live Streaming on?Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD in English commentary and Star Sports 3 and Star Sports 3 HD in Hindi Commentary.

Derek Jeter on Thursday delighted those New York Yankees fans lucky enough — or well-heeled enough — to go to his final home game. First he smashed a near home run (it ended up being a double) in the opening frame. Then he finished his Yankee Stadium career in storybook fashion with a walk-off base hit in the bottom of the ninth:In the minds of most Yankees fans, it was classic Jeter — The Captain stepping up in the clutch, like he’s been doing for years.Then again, Jeter has also had the misfortune of playing his entire career during the sabermetric boom, which for the longest time denied the very existence of a true clutch hitter. Contrary to pinstriped dogma, Jeter couldn’t be something that didn’t exist.Sabermetricians have since softened on that stance, and further research has shown there are players with a demonstrable ability to improve their hitting when it matters most. (Of course, most of those players are guys you’d never expect, provided you’re not a huge Scott Spiezio fan.) Sabermetricians have also devised ever more inventive ways to measure what it means to hit in the clutch, chief among them being Win Probability Added (WPA) and its derivatives.WPA measures the change in win probability resulting from each plate appearance, putting a number on how much every play moved the needle toward a win in either team’s direction. Naturally, clutch situations will carry more WPA weight, because those moments produce the largest swings in win probability; there’s even a metric called Leverage Index that tracks how crucial a given situation is relative to the average plate appearance in Major League Baseball.(To give an example of WPA in action, Jeter’s final plate appearance at Yankee Stadium began with a 69 percent chance of New York winning. When the plate appearance ended, the Yankees had a 100 percent chance of a win — having, you know, won the ballgame. Therefore, Jeter earned 0.31 units of WPA with that single, making it the most impactful hit of the game for the Yankees.)If you add up all of those incremental pieces of win probability throughout the season, you’ll arrive at the total estimated number of wins a player added at the plate, giving a great deal of weight to when the player’s numbers were produced.That’s WPA.But there’s also a way to measure what a player’s WPA would be if we didn’t weigh clutch moments so much heavier than ordinary ones. To do that, sabermetricians have developed WPA/LI, which divides a batter’s WPA by the average Leverage Index of all his plate appearances, effectively producing a context-neutral version of WPA.Because any discrepancies between the two metrics are necessarily driven by contradictions in performance between big and routine moments, the difference between WPA and WPA/LI has been used to quantify clutch performance. And Jeter — despite his reputation, despite hits like Thursday night’s game-winner — hasn’t hit appreciably better or worse in pressure situations than in typical ones.As is the case with a few notable advanced metrics, the “Clutch” figures at Baseball-Reference and FanGraphs don’t match up exactly (here, probably because of slight differences in the sites’ win probability models). But both data sets tell similar stories. According to Baseball-Reference.com, there have been 1,077 players to have 1000-plus career games since 1940, and Jeter ranks 634th in Clutch — right ahead of Nate McLouth, Nick Swisher and Shane Victorino. FanGraphs’ Clutch data only goes back to 1974, but among the 1,663 qualifiers with 1,000 or more plate appearances since then, Jeter ranks 639th, slightly outpaced by Deion Sanders. Relative to the universe of MLB players past and present, Jeter’s Clutch differentials are only remarkable for how unremarkable they are.Maybe that’s the point. This particular statistical conception of clutch focuses narrowly on just one definition of the term — how much a player’s numbers improved or declined in big moments — but ignores the baseline level of performance from which each player was starting. Sanders was a relatively mediocre hitter who was relatively mediocre in the clutch as well. By contrast, Jeter was a fantastic hitter (and not just “for a shortstop”) for most of his career, regardless of the circumstance, so it means something that he performed to his usual high standards in clutch situations as well. That’s how you end up producing as many career WPA as a Hall of Famer like Ernie Banks, for instance.If anything is puzzling about Jeter’s relatively average crunch-time metrics, it’s not the contrast against his game-raising reputation as Captain Clutch — a good amount of which was myth-making hooey anyway. It’s that his style of play has traditionally been quite conducive to outperforming one’s baseline statistics during high-leverage at bats. Running a regression between FanGraphs’ version of Clutch and its various component stats, including walk rate, strikeout rate, isolated power and speed score, the two metrics most strongly associated with a player’s Clutch number are a lack of strikeouts and a lack of power. Jeter’s career K-rate was 2.9 percentage points below the MLB average, and his career isolated power was 25 points below the norm, so you’d think he’d have a leg up in the clutch. Not so, say the statistics.But his curtain call at Yankee Stadium demonstrated those traits perfectly. On Wednesday, my colleague Jonah Keri wrote extensively about Jeter’s signature inside-out swing, and his propensity for going to the opposite field. About how Jeter perfected the art of going the other way through hours of practice, gaining the consistency required to shoot the ball precisely into the gap between the first and second basemen. It was fitting, then, that his walk-off single showcased all of that. Jeter the “technician” produced hits like Thursday night’s farewell stroke in clutch and non-clutch moments alike.
