ICC World Twenty20: Rohit Sharma thrilled as Mohammed Shami makes impressive comeback

Posted on

first_imgIt’s never easy for a fast bowler to make a comeback from a knee injury but Mohammed Shami is working very hard to get his rhythm back and the Indian team has plenty of expectations from him in the ICC World Twenty20, opener Rohit Sharma said. (India’s win in photos) Shami had his knee operated last year and has since struggled to reclaim his place in the team. He was named in the squad for the series against Australia but had to pull out even before a ball had been bowled. (India thrash West Indies by 45 runs in WT20 warm-up match) Playing his first match after recovery, Shami took two wickets and gave away 30 runs in India’s warm-up game against the West Indies on Thursday.”It’s never easy for a fast bowler to come back from a knee injury. He’s worked really hard. It was his first game after the layoff and he did pretty well. He’s worked really hard all this while. He executed the plans really well. He bowled bouncers, yorkers, slower ones. That’s what we expect from him. He was one of the main bowlers till the last time he played for India. Expectation will be there on him,” Rohit, who himself hit a sublime unbeaten 98, said.”He worked hard at the nets yesterday, trying to get his rhythm back. He just wanted to go out in the park and play.”It’s about getting a feel of the conditions. Once he got on, he bowled well with the new ball and did well with the old one,” Rohit added.advertisementThe prolific batsman also said that India’s dominant run is a result of excellence in all three aspects of the game.India have won 10 out of their last 11 Twenty20 matches, winning three series — against Australia, Sri Lanka before lifting the Asia Cup — in a row.”We have done well in our last three tournaments and we are not winning just because of one department. We are winning because of our bowling, batting and fielding has been superb,” Rohit said after India’s 45-run win.He said it was great to have a feel of the home conditions before the main round of World T20.”It shows we’re not taking practice matches lightly. We treat them as good as a league match. The feel of the World Cup, coming here and playing in India and having a feel, was important. We did all that,” he said.”Our bowlers did the job for us. Everyone got to bowl. In batting also most got the chances. Fielding effort was so good. Rahane was superb on the field. We’ve one more practice match left. We are happy,” he said as they leave for Mumbai for their last warmup match against South Africa on March 12.Having failed in batting, Rahane (seven) was brilliant on the field taking four catches that dismissed Andre Russell, captain Darren Sammy, Ashley Nurse and Sulieman Benn.Eden Gardens is a venue where nothing goes wrong for Rohit, who has won two IPL titles for Mumbai Indians (2013 and 2015) and also scored a world record 264 (against Sri Lanka in November, 2014).”I love playing here. It’s been happy hunting ground for me. Whatever cricket I’ve played here, it’s the same. It’s nice, I love coming here and playing. It’s been good always but that does not mean I score always. I’ve to bat well to score runs and I was happy with the way it went for the team.It’s a typical Kolkata wicket, there was no change in it,” he concluded.last_img read more

Capella Bangkok Opening in 2019

first_imgCapella Bangkok Opening in 2019Capella Bangkok Opening in 2019Visionary global hospitality brand, Capella Hotel Group is to unveil its first urban resort in Thailand: Capella Bangkok, set to open in the second quarter of 2019. Taking up residence on the east bank of the legendary River of Kings (Chao Phraya River) the new luxury property is the first to open along the waterway in the last two decades.John Blanco, General Manager of Capella Bangkok comments: “The revival of the riverside has been happening organically for some years now and it’s incredible to experience the enthusiasm everybody has for a return to the city’s original roots. It’s reminiscent of the redevelopment of historic – and often artistic – waterfront locales in other major metropolises such as the Meatpacking District in Manhattan and Belém in Lisbon, and I have every confidence that it will have the same uplifting effect on the city as a whole.”Undergoing a major transformation, the surrounding Chao Phraya and Charoenkrung neighbourhood is revelling in the rise of its burgeoning local arts scene and the revival of its provincial culinary landscape. Charoenkrung and Chao Phraya have inevitably moved with the times, but unlike many districts throughout the sprawling metropolis, this specific area retains a strong sense of community identity which puts the riverfront lifestyle centre stage. A contemporary playground is afoot in which heritage will be rediscovered and new stories can be crafted by travellers who want to immerse themselves in one of Bangkok’s oldest neighbourhoods.John Blanco adds: “I am sure our guests will enjoy exploring the locale and discovering the diverse street food stalls, riverfront seafood markets and decades-old shophouse restaurants including the legendary Thip Volcanic Fried Mussel & Oyster, in addition to the fashionable new eateries celebrating Bangkok’s bygone culinary roots. Guests are also sure to be enamoured by groups of all ages performing tai chi and yoga along the river and games from badminton to native takraw.”Capella Bangkok offers 101 suites and the city’s first riverfront villas located within the highly-anticipated Chao Phraya Estate, a more-than-14-acre prime waterfront land development that boasts unprecedented accessibility and 350 metres of riverfront real estate.Designed to evoke the feeling of a personal pied-à-terre with unobstructed views of the river from every room, the luxury property features a signature restaurant curated by celebrated Michelin-starred chef Mauro Colagreco, Auriga Wellness with an extensive list of carefully curated Asian therapies combining traditional techniques with contemporary solutions, The Capella Living Room – a light-filled, river-facing lounge that will host local artisans, music and culinary delights to reflect the neighbourhood’s passion for food, wellness and culture.Crafted local experiences, provided by the Capella Personal Assistant, will offer guests first-hand encounters with resident luminaries and inspire them to create and share their own memories about the city’s most intriguing enclave.About Capella Hotel GroupCapella Hotel Group, headquartered in Singapore with offices in China, Europe and USA, offers global hospitality management services through two distinct brands.
