Will help KL Rahul to improve Punjab Kings: Australian players

Sports Desk: Moises Henriques won the title in February by Sydney Sixers in Australia's famous T20 League Beag Bash League. However, he did not take credit for the fact that every player in the team plays his role during the tournament. Heinrichs said that a successful team needs players who are ready to help their captain when needed and the same happened to him in the BBL.

This player will be seen playing for Punjab Kings in the IPL. He said that he would do the same for his captain KL Rahul. Henriques just because you are the captain does not mean that you run the match. I had 10 other very good players, very good leaders helping me. Now I will try to do the same for KL (Rahul), whether it is while playing the game or watching the game. It is the team's effort to do better from wherever it is. 

Henriques highlighted how good fielding works in favor of the team in the shortest format of the game. He said, I think the filming is a big part that does not get praise and it is acceptable. Many of the best teams I have played with have had a good fielding setup. 

He gave an example, saying, if you can save 5-10 consecutive runs on the field, while other teams are probably losing a few runs on the field every time. If you take the chance of that half-catch or odd run-out, you do it multiple times in a season and it will probably give you 2 or 3 extra wins during the season. The first match of Punjab Kings will be played against Rajasthan Royals on 12 April in Mumbai.

FC Goa ready for AFC Champions League group stage debut

Madgaon: AFC Champions League football tournament will be held for the first time since Wednesday in India and FC Goa will be the only team from the country to participate in the group stage of the continent's top club football competition. The FC Goa team will clash with Al-Rayan SC of Qatar at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Wednesday and head coach Juan Ferrando is hopeful that the team will be able to take advantage of playing at home.

In this continent's most prestigious club competition, Indian Super League 2019-20 champion FC Goa has been placed in Group E along with Persepolis of Iran, Al-Rayan and Al-Wahda of UAE. The path of the Indian team will not be easy against the team of Al-Rayan, playing under the guidance of former Paris Saint Germain manager Laurent Blanc. Al-Rayan has such legendary players as former FC Porto star Yasin Brahimi and Ivory Coast's Yohan Boli.

It will not be easy for FC Goa to overcome the challenge of strong teams of Persepolis and Al Wahda. Before his league debut, Ferrando described his players' chance to play once in their lifetime against some of Asia's biggest players. FC Goa qualified in the group stage of the 2021 AFC Champions League by winning the ISL Winners League Shield in the 2019-20 season. This is the first time an Indian team is playing in this phase of the competition.
