Mumbai Indians (MI) are set to take on arch-rivals Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in a crucial encounter at the latter’s home ground in Chepauk on April 26. While MS Dhoni-led CSK sit comfortably at the top of the points table, Rohit Sharma’s MI can’t afford to lose as it will adversely affect their chances of qualifying for the playoffs.On the eve of the match, Sharma billed the clash as the ‘El Clasico’ of the IPL on his Twitter page – and rightly so. There is no other match-up in the IPL that can boast of a larger fan following and viewer interest than that of Super Kings juggernaut squaring against the Mumbai franchise. Also, MI are the only team in the IPL against whom CSK have a winning percentage of less than 50.Not just this, but what equates the mouth-watering clash to it’s supposed football counterpart is the fact that CSK vs MI has more often than not produced some exhilarating performances, jaw-dropping moments, tense finishes and much more.#ElClassico of @IPL is here folks pic.twitter.com/5OuFWRTJE4Rohit Sharma (@ImRo45) April 25, 2019Here we take a look at five such encounters between these teams in the history of the IPL which prove the same:1. CSK vs MI, Chennai, IPL 2008: Chennai won by 6 runsDo you remember Abhishek Nayar? The long-time prolific run-scorer for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy had his moment in the sun as he hit 45*(20) raising MI’s hopes of a come from behind win while chasing 209 in the first-ever match between these teams. After CSK had put up a mammoth total riding on a brutal 81(46) from Mathew Hayden, MI seemed out of the contest when they needed 62 of the last four overs. But Nayar combined with stand-in captain Harbhajan Singh to knock down all but 6 runs off the deficit. And just to top off all the nostalgia, it was 2007 World T20 final hero Joginder Sharma who was trusted to bowl the final over by Dhoni. And just like a few months ago at the Wanderers, Sharma didn’t disappoint his skipper.advertisement2. MI vs CSK, Mumbai, IPL 2011: Mumbai won by 8 runsBefore Harbhajan Singh joined the Yellow Brigade, he already had built an impressive CV against his former rivals. With three wickets in an over adding up to his five for the match, Harbhajan tormented the Chennai batsmen with his flight and guile to earn his side a hard-fought victory. Rohit Sharma (87) and Subramaniam Badrinath (71*) played crucial roles for their respective teams but it was Singh who finally turned the match in MI’s favour by breaking the back of CSK’s batting. Chasing a par total of 165, CSK crumbled from a comfortable 98/2 in the 12th over to 156/9 by the end of the match.3. MI vs CSK, Mumbai, IPL 2012: Mumbai won by 2 wicketsAnother humdinger of a game that went to the final ball of the match with four required to win off the last delivery. Dwayne Smith pulled off the ultimate heist for MI when the team needed 16 off the last over. The equation became 14 required off 3 balls as Mumbai kept crumbling, but Smith hit a six and two fours off the final deliveries to seal an incredible night for the home team. Earlier Sachin Tendulkar (74) and Rohit Sharma (60) had put MI on course of an easy win in pursuit of 175. This can be termed as the time period when MI started to assert their authority over the Super Kings in the IPL.4. CSK vs MI, Chennai, IPL 2013: Mumbai won by 9 runsAfter Mumbai posted a mere 148/6 helped by Kieron Pollard’s rapid half-century, their hopes received a major shot-in-the-arm with CSK losing wickets at regular intervals. But at 137/8 with just an over to go, MI couldn’t take their foot off the pedal as MS Dhoni (51) was still at the crease. That scenario changed drastically on the next ball itself with veteran Munaf Patel removing the Chennai talisman to all but seal a famous win for Mumbai.5. MI vs CSK, Mumbai, IPL 2018: Chennai won by 1 wicketChasing 166 for victory, the returning CSK were in a hopeless situation with the score reading 106/7 at the end of the 15th over. But such has been the resilience of CSK players over the years that they somehow find ways to overcome the toughest of situations. In this match, Dwayne Bravo rose like a phoenix blasting seven humongous sixes in a 30-ball 68 to bring his team within touching distance of the target.Also Read | Unfortunate to see so many people going after MS Dhoni: Virat Kohli to India TodayAlso Read | Why India need MS Dhoni’s experience at 2019 World Cup: Former CSK teammate explainsadvertisement

Washington: US President Donald Trump on Monday said he will meet his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping and Russian leader Vladimir Putin in June on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit in Japan.

Pedon visits his father in hospice care following the Buckeyes’ 80-64 victory over Michigan State on Jan. 7. Credit: Courtesy of Ryan PedonRyan Pedon still remembers the exact seats he sat in for Ohio State men’s basketball games in St. John Arena with his father, mother and sister when he was growing up.Section 7A, row 14, seats 1, 2, 3 and 4.For nearly 15 years of his childhood, Pedon sat in those seats next to his father, Felix Pedon. Ryan, hired to be an assistant coach for the Buckeyes in June, remembers the time spent in that arena as well as anything else from his youth. His mind often wanders back to those seats, especially now — now that he could be close to losing his best friend.Felix has battled Lewy body dementia since his diagnosis eight years ago. At age 86, after years of watching Ryan’s games as an athlete, and now as a coach, he is nearing the end of his battle.Ryan, who departs Thursday for the Big Ten tournament in New York City, is unsure if his father will be alive when he returns.“My gut says about a week, but I don’t know,” Ryan said Tuesday. “I don’t know what to base that off of. I’m not a doctor. Just kind of watching him, looking at him in his hospice bed right now. He’s peaceful. I don’t think he’s having trouble breathing at the moment, so maybe a week or two.”On most road trips, Ryan has been able to effectively compartmentalize his feelings. He said he is always trying to balance his roles as a coach, father, husband and son.But given the health of his father, Ryan’s trip to New York for what could be several days will be different.Felix has always had a family member by his side since his diagnosis. Now that his health is beginning to fail him, Ryan might not be there at the end, something with which he has made peace.“At this point, I think I know my dad would want me to be with the team,” Ryan said, breaking down in tears. “And as much as I’d like to be there for him at the end, you put your faith in the man above and you’ve just sort of got to let the chips fall where they may. Sort of, you leave him in the Lord’s hands. I think that’s probably the best thing I could say.“I’ve got to be there with our team and hope I’m around when it happens, but if I’m not, then I know we’ll have other family that will be here.”—If there was a golden child in the family, it was Ryan, said Dean, his second-oldest half-brother. Felix was always heavily invested in sports, having played tennis until a knee operation in 2008, as well as coaching basketball, baseball and football at St. Catherine’s high school for several years.Dean said Felix knew once Ryan, his fifth son, was born, he had a future basketball player.“My dad came out and he was so proud that he had another boy,” Dean said. “He said, ‘He can dribble with both hands and he goes right to the basket.’ And that truly is how he introduced Ryan to me.”From an early age, Ryan’s parents encouraged him to play basketball — to a certain extent. Ryan had a basketball “bigger than he was,” said his mom, Sally. He took it with him wherever he went, until his mom found it deflated in the trunk of the family station wagon one summer.Ohio State assistant coach Ryan Pedon looks onto the court during the Buckeyes’ final home game of the 2017-18 regular season on Feb. 20, 2018. Ohio State won 79-56. Credit: Edward Sutelan | Assistant Sports EditorWhile Sally expressed concern that her son was becoming too “one-dimensional,” Felix encouraged the habit, building a basketball hoop in the backyard above the garage and frequently playing with Ryan. He even put lights around it so Ryan could continue playing until midnight, often keeping the neighbors awake.When they couldn’t play in the backyard, they went to a local community center.Ryan and his dad were so close, Ryan made him the best man at his wedding in 2010. It was, as Felix shuffled down the aisle, that the family doctor — who was a friend and neighbor in attendance at the wedding — noticed what he believed to be symptoms of Parkinson’s.His disease was originally diagnosed as a form of Parkinsonism, Sally said, but around a year later was identified as Lewy body dementia after Felix underwent multiple tests at Ohio State.“I didn’t know a lot about Lewy body, and I certainly did a little bit of research, but it was something that we found out would be a gradual, you know, sort of a gradual progression,” Ryan said.Given that it is a slow-moving disease and his dad still seemed to be in relatively fine condition — though he began to lose motor skills — the family felt fortunate in some respects. “I don’t want to make it seem like in 2010 it was a death sentence either, because it wasn’t,” Ryan said. “The last eight years, it was probably a blessing that we could see it coming a little bit, too, as opposed to — when it’s a loved one, I think we’re all different with how we respond to death of loved ones. Everybody’s different, but I know our family, we were appreciative that we were able to say our goodbyes and sort of see it coming.”—For a while, most of the Pedon family was away from Columbus. Four of the five sons lived out of state, as did Ryan’s sister, Amy. However, Ryan was hired to join head coach Chris Holtmann’s staff at Ohio State in the summer, bringing him back home to his father.Men’s basketball assistant coach Ryan Pedon sits with his father, Felix Pedon in the Schottenstein Center during a family visit in 2017. Credit: Courtesy of Ryan PedonHaving grown up the son of a Buckeye fan and raised as one, Ryan felt pride at the chance to be able to tell his father that he would be coaching at Ohio State. It had always been a dream of the Pedon family for Ryan to be able to return to Columbus. The dream, unfortunately, was met with a morbid moment.“When I told him I was coming to Ohio State — I’m sorry I’m getting choked up a little bit here,” Ryan said, “But he said, the night I told him I was coming to Ohio State, he said, ‘I can die a happy man.’”Shortly after being hired, Ryan took his parents and his high school basketball coach on a tour of the Schottenstein Center. The group ventured throughout the arena, seeing where the shoes are kept in the locker room, the coaches’ offices and the court with empty seats.Sally said Felix was so proud and that it felt like a dream come true for him to receive a tour of the Buckeyes’ home arena by his son — one of the coaches.Felix was in better shape during the tour of the arena, but as the season neared, his health declined. Ryan said he is unsure if his dad was even able to comprehend or fully watch a game with Ryan as an Ohio State coach on TV given his current mental state.“The saddest thing is he was looking forward to — that was his goal in rehab this fall was to get better and stronger so he could go to that [Nov. 5 matchup against Wooster],” Sally said. “It was sad that he did not get to make that game or any this season.”Ryan visits his dad as frequently as he can. Often, he goes by himself when he can find the time. Whether it’s on the way home from games, before a road trip or just some free time, Ryan tries to spend time with his dad whenever possible.“It’s been pretty cool to be able to go, and with the season we’ve had and go there and tell him that, ‘Dad, we just beat the No. 1 team in the country. We beat Michigan State,’” Ryan said. “You go after games, and sometimes I’ll go real early in the morning. Sometimes I’ll go real late at night. But I just go and sit there and just talk to him.”Ryan has not opened up about his father’s disease much with his fellow coaches. In fact, Holtmann said he asks Ryan about his father more often than Ryan brings him up. Holtmann said he knows Ryan has gone through a lot and encourages him to take time off should he need it.“He needs to know he has my blessing to do that and more than anything, I’m encouraging him to do that, if that’s what he feels like he needs,” Holtmann said. “But he also may feel like, hey, like he told me, ‘My dad would want me to be doing this.’”Even with Ryan having said it has been nice to have the eight years with his father rather than an unexpected loss, Ryan will be losing the person he calls his father, his role model, his best friend.Sally, who has spent countless hours watching the two play pickup basketball outside and going with them to play golf, knows it will be hard on Ryan. It will be hard on everyone in the family. “I’m proud of my kid,” Sally said. “It’s the end of an era. Ryan and his dad have been the closest of all the children.”When he steps onto the team bus that will take him to the airport to board a plane for New York City on Thursday, Ryan won’t know for certain whether he will see his father alive again.But he will forever see his father in his memories, always in that same row, always in the same seats.
Ohio State’s redshirt senior Blake Leeson anticipates to block a George Mason attempt at the game against on Jan. 18 at St. John Arena in Columbus. Credit: Ethan Clewell | Senior Reporter.In a near identical match to Thursday’s five-set thriller, the Ohio State men’s volleyball team closed out the regular season, and its tenure at St. John Arena, downing Ball State in five sets, 19-25, 25-17, 15-25, 25-23 and 15-9. The Buckeyes (10-18, 5-9 MIVA) tallied 6.5 blocks and 21 kills to win the final two sets in a comeback victory despite being both out-blocked 10 to 8.5 and out-killed 51 to 50 by the Cardinals (15-13, 6-7 MIVA). In both matches on Thursday and Saturday, Ohio State fell in the first and third sets, setting up a fourth-and-fifth-set comeback. Head coach Pete Hanson said the Buckeyes’ early struggles have a lot to do with team confidence. “Once we’ve kind of let the jitters die down or let our anxieties flow away because we’re getting tired, then we settle in,” Hanson said. “We’re trying to do too much too early.” With Ball State holding a 13-12 lead in the first set, senior middle blocker Parker Swartz struck a kill and two aces, extending the Cardinals’ advantage to four. Despite an ace by Ohio State senior setter Sanil Thomas and kills by redshirt senior middle blocker Blake Leeson and freshman outside hitter Sean Ryan, Ball State used kills by Swartz and junior outside attacker Matt Szews, as well as Ohio State errors to hold the Buckeyes off in the first set, 25-19. Swartz finished with a team-high four aces, adding nine kills, two digs and three block assists. Junior outside hitter Blake Reardon led the Cardinals with 14 kills, also contributing an ace, two digs and three block assists. Down two sets to one, Ohio State stormed back in the fourth set. After falling behind 9-4 early, the Buckeyes exploded for scoring runs of three and five points, including an ace by freshman middle blocker Ethan Talley, kills by sophomore opposite hitter Jake Hanes and junior outside hitter Reese Devilbiss and two blocks, taking a 15-12 lead. Despite a late surge by Ball State, Ohio State held the Cardinals’ attack at bay, holding onto a two-point lead en route to a 25-23 fourth set victory, ensuring a fifth and final set. Devilbiss ended with 14 kills, a dig and four block assists. Hanes led the Buckeyes with 19 kills and two aces, adding three digs and three block assists. His two aces came as part of a five-ace second set, establishing a foundation for the Buckeyes’ comeback victory three sets later. Ohio State brought its fourth-set momentum into the fifth set, using a five-point run to take a 10-5 lead from three Ball State attack errors and two blocks featuring Devilbiss, Talley and Thomas. Kills by Reardon and junior middle blocker Lemuel Turner helped the Cardinals cut into Ohio State’s lead, but three kills by Hanes, Leeson and redshirt sophomore outside hitter Tyler Alter snuffed out the comeback attempt, leaving the Buckeyes victorious in the fifth set, 15-9, and the match, 3-2. Leeson, a senior who played in his final regular season match for the Buckeyes Saturday night, said this was a special win for him. “I’m just so proud of the guys and to go out and put [St. John Arena] to bed with a win against a team that usually gives us a lot of trouble was a great feeling,” Leeson said. “I wouldn’t have it any other way.” Ohio State will return to action in the MIVA tournament Saturday against No. 10 Loyola Chicago in Chicago.
