10 months agoEmery hopes Arsenal defeat acts as wake-up call

The objective is therefore top but we know it’s not easy because the other teams are at a high level.”We need to be very, very demanding.” last_img read more

Report: PSG 2 Strasbourg 0

first_imgNeymar provided Paris Saint-Germain with an injury scare after hobbling off having appeared to twist his right foot in the 2-0 Coupe de France win over Strasbourg.PSG’s 9-0 thrashing of Guingamp on Saturday was soured by midfielder Marco Verratti suffering a sprained left ankle, and Neymar sustained a problem in their latest success.The Brazil forward received treatment for an issue seemingly sustained after a challenge from Strasbourg midfielder Moataz Zemzemi and, though Neymar returned to the pitch, he withdrew himself in the 62nd minute and was consoled as he made his way down the tunnel.

Thomas Tuchel’s side had been 1-0 up at the time thanks to Edinson Cavani’s early goal, and Angel Di Maria’s 80th-minute volley made sure of their progress to the last 16.GOAL! 2-0! Angel Di Maria makes it two! #PSGRCSA#ICICESTPARIS pic.twitter.com/s1Hxd2zP5T— Paris Saint-Germain (@PSG_English) January 23, 2019PSG went ahead inside four minutes, Cavani placing home after Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting gathered Thiago Silva’s long ball.After going close with a pair of free-kicks, Neymar somehow poked wide in front of an open goal after sliding to reach Di Maria’s squared pass.Cavani’s downward header from a corner was clawed away by Matz Sels, who kept out Neymar’s effort and saw Di Maria’s follow-up attempt hit the post before half-time.Neymar’s eventful evening continued when he suffered his apparent injury when trying to fend off Zemzemi, who attempted to tackle the Brazilian three times before the referee’s whistle went.The PSG forward was unhappy with the rough treatment meted out and got a form of revenge when he flicked the ball over the Strasbourg midfielder before firing wide from the resultant set piece.However, Neymar left the pitch shortly after and his evening ended with 28 minutes still to play.It appeared to have an adverse effect on Tuchel’s men, who barely created anything until Di Maria reached Julian Draxler’s back-post cross to make sure of the win 10 minutes from time.That killed off any hope of a Strasbourg fightback and also allowed Tuchel to introduce Jese Rodriguez from the bench for his first PSG appearance since December 2016. What does it mean? PSG left with Neymar fearsNeymar sustained his injury with less than three weeks to go until the first leg of PSG’s Champions League last-16 tie against Manchester United. A fractured metatarsal and sprained ankle suffered last February ensured he missed the rest of the domestic season. A similar period on the sidelines would be a significant blow to PSG’s continental hopes.No Mbappe … then no Neymar, no problem.Tuchel opted to leave Kylian Mbappe out of his matchday squad and even after Neymar came off his team still had plenty of firepower. Di Maria looked the most dangerous throughout and got his reward when Draxler picked him out at the back post to score the second with 10 minutes to go.Zemzemi endures night to forgetHe may have injured Neymar but Zemzemi was made to look foolish when the PSG forward responded by flicking the ball over his head moments later. Moreover, it was Zemzemi’s dreadful clearance that allowed the home side to score their second and clinch the tie.What’s next?Ligue 1 leaders PSG, who are 13 points clear with two games in hand, may be without Neymar when they entertain Rennes on Sunday before a trip to Lyon. Fifth-placed Strasbourg will hope to get back to winning ways in the first of back-to-back games against Bordeaux.  read morelast_img read more

‘No change’ in Lampard’s position amid Chelsea rumours

first_imgDerby owner Mel Morris insists there is “no change” to Frank Lampard’s position at Pride Park, despite rumours he could succeed Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea.There is yet another managerial vacancy at Stamford Bridge after the Italian’s departure to Juventus was confirmed on Sunday afternoon.Sarri only spent one full season in charge at Chelsea, guiding the team to a third-place Premier League finish while also earning his first major trophy as a head coach in the form of the Europa League.

The 60-year-old cited family ties as the driving force behind his desire for a swift return to Italy and he has signed a three-year deal with the Serie A champions.Lampard has been touted to succeed Sarri at the Bridge, having impressed in his debut campaign as Rams manager.The Chelsea legend took Derby to the Championship play-off final, narrowly missing out on promotion after a 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa at Wembley.Club owner Morris has revealed that, contrary to reports, no senior officials from Chelsea have been in contact to discuss a possible deal for Lampard as of yet.“We have made it very clear to everyone – but most importantly to Frank himself – that we want to retain him at the club for the long term,” Morris said in a statement on Monday.”If Chelsea want to hire Frank, then it is in their gift to make an offer in pursuit of that. In the meantime, we will continue to put our best foot forward to continue with our plans for the coming season.”We will work closely with Frank in that regard so that he knows how much he is wanted by everyone associated with the club.”Lampard enjoyed an illustrious playing career at the Bridge, racking up 640 appearances in total while contributing a staggering 211 goals from midfield.He also managed to win three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, one Champions League, one Europa League and two League Cups during his time in west London, earning himself a place in the club’s hall of fame.The 40-year-old left Chelsea to join Manchester City in 2014 and completed a move to MLS outfit New York City the following year, before hanging up his boots in 2017.A number of ex-Blues have weighed in on Lampard’s potential appointment in recent weeks and he has received a glowing endorsement for the role from his uncle Harry Redknapp.last_img read more

‘Leroy Sane can be the new face of Bayern Munich’

first_imgLothar Matthaus has tipped Leroy Sane to make a move to Bayern Munich, saying he could become the new face of the Bundesliga champions.Sane has proven his worth at Manchester City, having helped Pep Guardiola’s side to two Premier League titles in the last three seasons.But the 23-year-old fell out of favour with City in the back half of last season, starting just five matches in the league after January.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Sane also only played a total of just seven minutes over two legs of City’s quarter-final defeat to Tottenham in the Champions League, leading to talk he could look for a move in the summer.Bayern Munich have been tipped as a potential destination for Sane, with the club’s chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge admitting that his side are looking to find an agreement for the Germany international. Matthaus, who starred for Bayern and Germany during his playing career, believes the conditions are there for a transfer to happen.”I really think Bayern Munich [would] like to spend a lot of money, more than €80 million (£72m/$90m),” Matthaus told ESPN. “In City he’s not happy in one way, and City is ready to give him up. But the main answer has to be from Leroy Sane. Does he like to come to Bayern Munich, yes or no?”Should Sane decide he wants to join Bayern, Matthaus believes that the club’s good relationship with its former manager will help make the transfer a reality.”When he says yes, Bayern will contact Manchester City,” Matthaus said. “There’s a good relationship between Bayern Munich’s board and Pep Guardiola and I think they will find a way.”If Sane does move to the Bundesliga champions, Matthaus believes that the sky is the limit for the winger back in his native country.”The important thing is Leroy Sane has to say 100 percent yes to Bayern Munich,” Matthaus said.”And then he will be a big star in Germany, maybe the biggest face of German football in the last years because for the money that Bayern would like to spend on him, he can be the new face of Bayern Munich.”However, Guardiola doesn’t appear willing to let Sane leave without a fight, saying on Wednesday that he wants to help the winger reach his potential at City.last_img read more

Clemson Hosting Coastal Carolina Football, Displaced By Hurricane This Week

(Photo by Tyler Smith/Getty Images)Hurricane Dorian has been making its way towards the Southeastern Coast, after battering the Bahamas this week. On top of the tremendous damage it’s caused, the hurricane has made preparing for college football games especially difficult for some schools in its path. Luckily, for one, Clemson is here to help.In the state of South Carolina, the governor ordered an evacuation of areas along the coast. Among the affected colleges is Coastal Carolina, which has had classes cancelled and all facilities closed for the coming storm.Coastal Carolina has only a few days before heading to the Midwest for a game against Kansas. Earlier this week they were forced to practice on a high school field.But the Clemson Tigers have decided to extend a helping hand to their in-state neighbors.The Chanticleers revealed on Wednesday that the Tigers had opened their doors to them.Southern hospitality! Thank you @ClemsonFB for opening up your home to let us work today.#ChantsUp | #BEL1EVE | #BAM pic.twitter.com/5Auf1YY4G7— Coastal Football (@CoastalFootball) September 4, 2019The Chanticleers and the Tigers couldn’t be farther apart in terms of ambitions and overall ability. They played each other only once back in 2009, with Clemson easily beating them in a 49-3 victory.Clemson has gone on to win a pair of national titles since that game, while Coastal Carolina just launched its program in 2003, and joined the FBS level in 2017.But in the face of potentially serious damage at the hands of Hurricane Dorian, it’s nice to see that colleges are able to come together like this.Clemson is preparing for perhaps its toughest game of the regular season, when it hosts Texas A&M on Saturday. Coastal Carolina will travel to Kansas this week.last_img read more

Shikhar Dhawan could have played Ranji Trophy: Aakash Chopra on Shikhar Dhawan’s form

first_img Press Trust of India New DelhiMarch 6, 2019UPDATED: March 6, 2019 22:57 IST Shikhar Dhawan has scored only 21 runs in the two ODIs vs Australia. (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSShikhar Dhawan has scored at a below par average of 26.85 since the Asia CupDhawan’s former captain Vijay Dahiya said that Dhawan’s problem lies in the mindset and not techniqueAakash Chopra felt Dhawan could have come back to India and play Ranji Trophy after the New Zealand seriesShikhar Dhawan’s prolonged bad patch is more about his mindset rather than technique, feel former players, who have watched the Indian opener’s dip in form over the past few months.Since Asia Cup where he was the top scorer, Dhawan has scored only 376 runs in 15 innings at a below par average of 26.85 and only two half-centuries to show for his efforts.If pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile got him in the first ODI against Australia in Hyderabad, it was part-time off-spin of Glenn Maxwell that became his undoing in the second game after getting set.Both Aakash Chopra, who has opened alongside Dhawan in the first-class cricket and Vijay Dahiya, who has been Dhawan’s captain as well as coach in the Delhi team, agreed that he is going through a bad patch.But having keenly tracked his career, both the former Test players are confident that the left-hander will turn it around.Even former India keeper and analyst Deep Dasgupta thinks that “mindset is an issue as Dhawan has always found ways to score runs, working around his technique.””There is no denying Dhawan is going through a bad patch but with only three international matches left, I don’t see any drastic changes happening,” Chopra told PTI on the eve of the third game.”If he has scored 5000 plus ODI runs (5199 from 125 games), it means that he has been around for a reasonable period of time, seen ups and downs to have scored that many runs.”His record in multi-nation tournaments (World Cup, Champions Trophy, Asia Cup) is fabulous, so it could well be a matter of time that he is back in form,” feels Chopra.advertisementDahiya thinks Dhawan’s issue is that of mindset and trying to score quickly.”I won’t say technique is a big issue here as the boundaries that he got were all in-front of the wicket. May be not on the off-side but those were not behind the stumps shots either,” said Dahiya, who believes that every individual reacts to pressure in different situation.”What he was trying to do was to score quickly and that’s what happened against Maxwell. He probably felt that since Maxwell is a part-time, he can score quickly and that’s why played that pull shot,” Dahiya said.Talk about shot selection, Dasgupta feels that it happens when you are in supposedly a “bit of a comfort zone”.”He was set in Nagpur and he could have easily played it to either long-off or long-on for a single. This happens when you are a bit confused. With Shikhar, if he plays that expansive cover drive with a big front-foot stride inside the first two overs, you know that he is in good touch,” Dasgupta.The pressure of competition can at times affect the mindset and KL Rahul finding his form could be a reason, believes Dahiya.”You will only feel the pressure when someone pushes you. It is very important to know how your mind works in those situations,” said Dahiya.But Chopra ruled out the Rahul factor when it comes to choice of playing XI.”Had they split these matches (2 T20s and 5 ODIs) into seven games with 4 matches for Shikhar and 3 for Rohit with Rahul playing all seven, there could have been that possibility. But that didn’t happen,” said Chopra.But Chopra did raise a pertinent point about Dhawan not playing any first class cricket for the entire month of December.”He exactly didn’t set the stage on fire against West Indies at home and since he was not in Test side against Australia, he could have come back and played Ranji Trophy. It would have helped him as well as our domestic cricket. But that didn’t happen.”Also Read | When ‘humble’ MS Dhoni declined to inaugurate the Dhoni PavilionAlso Read | Why Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni are in love with Team India’s latest jerseyAlso Read | MS Dhoni comes home to Ranchi for India vs Australia 3rd ODIFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Pollard was unstoppable: KXIP batting coach Sriram in awe of MI stand-in captain

first_imgPollard was unstoppable: KXIP batting coach Sriram in awe of MI stand-in captainMI’s Kieron Pollard became an “unstoppable” force for the KXIP with his 10 sixes and three fours, said coach Sridharan Sriram.advertisement Press Trust of India MumbaiApril 11, 2019UPDATED: April 11, 2019 12:57 IST MI’s Kieron Pollard struck 10 sixes and three fours in his 31-ball whirlwind 83 against KXIP (AP photo)HIGHLIGHTSKXIP coach Sridharan Sriram said their good plans failed against an “unstoppable Pollard”MI’s Kieron Pollard struck 10 sixes and three fours in his 31-ball whirlwind 83 against KXIP”To do 13 an over for like 13 overs – took some doing,” said SriramKings XI Punjab had their plans in place but nothing could have worked in the face of an “unstoppable” force called Kieron Pollard, the team’s coach Sridharan Sriram conceded reflecting on the three-wicket loss to Mumbai Indians in the IPL.MI’s stand-in skipper Pollard, who promoted himself in the batting order, struck 10 monstrous sixes and three fours in his 31-ball whirlwind 83 that helped the home team chase down the stiff KXIP target of 198 at the Wankhede Stadium here on Wednesday.”We have seen Andre Russell (of Kolkata Knight Riders) doing it a few times. (But) this was extraordinary. To do 13 an over for like 13 overs – took some doing and only someone like Pollard could do that,” said Sriram after his side lost on the last ball.Sriram defended his bowling unit that, barring Mohammed Shami (3 for 21), was carted all over the park by Pollard.”At that point of time you have to be positive and hopefully he mis-hits one. I think our plans were good but just that today he was unstoppable,” added Sriram.His team missed crossing the 200-run mark after being well-poised when openers Chris Gayle (63 in 36 balls) and KL Rahul (100 not out in 64 balls) put on 116 in 77 balls, but Sriram felt that the final Punjab score of 197 for four was better than par for the course.”We didn’t have any target. I thought 185-190 was par for this wicket we were happy what we got,” said Sriram, who has also been a bowling coach for the Australian team in the past.advertisementGayle left in the 13th over and the scoring rate dropped before Rahul smacked a few sixes off Hardik Pandya’s penultimate over to up it. Sriram defended his batsmen.”These things (slowing down) just tend to happen. Someone can’t keep hitting for all the 20 overs. It’s hard to get going like that,” the former India left arm spinner said.He also defended the Punjab’s tactics of going into an IPL game with only five bowlers.”That’s how our combination works right now. We have had success as a bowling unit doing this. You got to take such a day like this one; can’t do much,” he said.Also Read | IPL not ideal yardstick, but little choice left for India selectors ahead of World CupAlso Read | Will not consider IPL performances for World Cup selection: MSK PrasadAlso Watch | Great to have someone like Chris Gayle in KXIP: KL RahulFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

It moves you and makes you appreciate life. Jersey’s success lies in its well-packed screenplay, which will move you to tears in a few places. In a scene, where Sarah and Arjun patch up after a nasty fight, one would just tear up seeing the beautiful relationship they share on screen.”Several critics call Jersey the best Telugu film that has released so far in 2019. The box office collection of the film will be a testament to the statement.MOVIE REVIEW: JERSEYALSO SEE | Priya Varrier and Roshan Abdul get cosy in a car for photoshootALSO WATCH | Scripts are decided depending upon the audience: Actor NaniGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Premier League: Southampton stay alive after thrilling draw with Bournemouth

first_imgPremier League: Southampton stay alive after thrilling draw with BournemouthSouthampton played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Bournemouth to secure their Premier League future for the year. Cardiff City defeated by Fulham 1-0, while Wolverhampton Wanderers beat Watford 2-1advertisement Reuters SouthamptonApril 27, 2019UPDATED: April 27, 2019 22:57 IST Southampton with the draw vs Bournemouth have secured their Premier League future for the year (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSSouthampton drew 3-3 Bournemouth to secure their Premier League future for the yearCardiff City defeated by Fulham 1-0, while Wolverhampton Wanderers beat Watford 2-1Cardiff stay in the relegation zone, while Wolves are 7th in the table on 54 pointsSouthampton secured their Premier League status for another year after a thrilling 3-3 home draw with Bournemouth on Saturday as Cardiff City slumped to a 1-0 defeat at Fulham.The draw put Southampton in 16th place on 38 points, seven ahead of Cardiff and four clear of Brighton & Hove Albion with two games left to play.Fresh from scoring the fastest goal in Premier League history against Watford, Irish striker Shane Long again got Southampton off to a flying start with a goal in the eighth minute, but Dan Gosling equalised eight minutes later.Long missed a sitter in the 24th minute, stabbing the ball against the post with the keeper stranded and the goal at his mercy, and it was to prove costly as Callum Wilson pounced to rattle home a rebound in the 32nd minute.James Ward-Prowse put the Saints level with a skimming shot that flew in at the foot of the post 10 minutes into the second half.Matt Targett thought he had put the icing on the cake for Southampton when he leapt to meet Yann Valery’s cross, sending his header into the net to spark scenes of wild celebration.They were interrupted when Wilson scuffed home his second, but news that Cardiff had gone behind to Fulham had filtered through to the ground and Southampton were able to enjoy confirmation of their survival in the top flight.FULL-TIME Fulham 1-0 CardiffA Ryan Babel worldie proves the difference as Cardiff’s hopes of #PL safety are dented#FULCAR pic.twitter.com/JoYp8xbqzeadvertisementPremier League (@premierleague) April 27, 2019Babel strike leaves Cardiff on brink of relegationRyan Babel struck a potentially deadly blow to Cardiff City’s Premier League survival chances with a stunning 25-yard strike that secured Fulham a deserved 1-0 win at Craven Cottage on Saturday.The defeat left Cardiff three points adrift of Brighton & Hove Albion, who play Newcastle United later on Saturday, and means they are likely to join Fulham in the Championship next season.Somewhat bizarrely, Fulham equalled their own Premier League record of three successive wins as Dutchman Babel struck a fierce first-time shot 11 minutes from time to register his sixth goal of the season.The game was delayed for seven minutes in the first half after Fulham’s Denis Odoi was accidentally kicked in the face by team mate Maxine Le Marchand.The defender was knocked out cold and had to be revived with oxygen before being carried off to a standing ovation.FULL-TIME Watford 1-2 WolvesRaul Jimenez and Diogo Jota secure victory for Wolves at Vicarage Road#WATWOL pic.twitter.com/hB9aNnzh1gPremier League (@premierleague) April 27, 2019Wolves avenge FA Cup heartbreak with 2-1 win at WatfordWolverhampton Wanderers got some revenge for a stinging FA Cup semi-final defeat by Watford as they beat them 2-1 in a lively Premier League clash on Saturday.They also stayed in contention for a Europa League berth, seventh in the table on 54 points from 36 games, four ahead of closest challengers Everton and Watford.Having thrown away a two-goal lead in their 3-2 Cup defeat by the Hornets at Wembley, Wolves enjoyed better fortunes this time after goals by Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota gave them the win at Vicarage Road.Also Read | West Ham United inflict first defeat on Tottenham Hotspur at new stadiumFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

French Open 2019: Federer excited about Nadal clash, ready to give his best shot

first_img Next Reuters ParisJune 5, 2019UPDATED: June 5, 2019 09:41 IST Roger Federer excited to try and solve Rafael Nadal puzzle. (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSRoger Federer has reached the semi-final on his return to French Open11-time champion Rafael Nadal eased past Kei Nishikori to the semi-finalI have the match with Rafa, and I’m clearly excited: FedererRoger Federer has never solved the riddle of playing Rafael Nadal at the French Open but still believes he can find the answer when the pair clash for the 39th time in Friday’s semi-final.The Swiss have suffered five French Open defeats by the marauding Mallorcan, four in finals and once in the 2005 semi-final when Nadal burst through as teenager to win the first of his 11 titles on the Parisian clay.The last time Federer beat Nadal anywhere on clay was in Madrid in 2009, one of only two times he has got the better of him on the Spaniard’s favorite surface.”I knew that when I signed up for the clay that hopefully that’s gonna happen (play against Nadal),” the 37-year-old Federer told reporters after his 7-6(4) 4-6 7-6(5) 6-4 victory over fellow Swiss Stan Wawrinka on Tuesday.”Like against any player, there is always a chance. Otherwise, nobody will be in the stadium to watch because everybody already knows the result in advance.”You just never know. He might have a problem. He might be sick. You never know. You might be playing great or for some reason, he’s struggling.”That’s why you need to put yourself in that position. Now I have the match with Rafa, and I’m clearly excited. I hope I can recover well in the next couple of days, which I’m sure I will, and I’ll give it my best shot on Friday.”Federer has played superbly on his first appearance at the French Open since 2015 and crucially he has avoided having any marathon battles on route to face Nadal.advertisementThe 2009 champion breezed through his first four rounds without dropping a set before stepping up a level to fend off Wawrinka in a high-quality contest.He will need another level, or two, against left-hander Nadal whose vicious topspin game has given him mastery over Federer at Roland Garros where he has never even been taken to five sets by the Swiss maestro.He is relishing the challenge though, having not played Nadal at the French Open since 2011 when he lost in four sets.”I’m looking forward to the test,” he said. “You have to be fearless to some extent to take on the spinny balls, the sliding balls, the kicking balls, and that’s what I will do on Friday.”Also Read | Andy Murray to play doubles at Queen’s ClubAlso Read | French Open 2019: Djokovic eases into quarters, Nishikori battles past PaireAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

first_img Sneha Saha New DelhiJune 5, 2019UPDATED: June 6, 2019 17:18 IST HIGHLIGHTSXiaomi Mi 9T is coming soon.The Mi 9T is said to be a rebranded version of Redmi K20.The Mi 9T is said to be powered by Snapdragon 730 processor.Mi 9T is the next Xiaomi phone and it is launching on June 12. So far we have heard a lot about the Xiaomi Mi 9T, thanks to the innumerable leaks and rumours making rounds on the internet. Just a few days ahead of the launch the Xiaomi Mi 9T has been spotted on Geekbench benchmarking site with all the key specs and performance score. Going in line with the past leaks, the Geekbench listing also suggests that the Mi 9T will be a rebranded version of Redmi K20.The benchmark listing reveals that the Xiaomi Mi 9T will run on Android 9 Pie and like every Xiaomi phone the software will be customised by the company’s own MIUI skin. The listing further reveals that the Mi 9T will come packed with 6GB RAM. We believe there will be other RAM models available too. The Geekbench listing notes “davinci” in the motherboard section.To recollect before the launch of the Redmi K20 the phone was spotted on Geekbench with the same davinci codenamed processor. This indirectly suggests that the Mi 9T will come with Snapdragon 730 processor like the Redmi K20. Coming to the benchmark score now. The Geekbench listing reveals that the Mi 9T has managed to score 2,540 in single-core and 6,911 in multi-core.Having said that, until now, it looks like the Mi 9T will sport the same specs sheet as the Redmi K20. This means the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 9T will come with pop-up camera mechanism, triple cameras on the back panel and Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 that is announced by Qualcomm only last month. As far as the specs are concerned the Mi 9T aka Redmi K20 includes 6.39-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display, 20MP pop-up selfie camera, 48MP + 13MP + 8MP rear camera setup, 4000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support, among others.advertisementAhead of the launch the Xiaomi Mi 9T is seen listed on a Bulgaria retail website that reveals the price of the phone. The listing shows the Mi 9T price to be 649 Lev that roughly translates to Rs 25,800. This price is for the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. We expect, similar to Redmi K20 the Mi 9T will also be available in several RAM and storage variants. Notably, Xiaomi is yet to officially reveal the price of the Mi 9T.In China, the Redmi K20 comes in two variants. The 6GB RAM+64GB storage version comes for 1999 Yuan (approximately Rs 20,000) while the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage model comes for 2099 Yuan that translates to Rs 21,000.Notably, the Xiaomi Mi 9T will not come to India. Instead, Xiaomi will be launching the Redmi K20 in the country in the next 6 weeks.ALSO READ | OnePlus 7 will go on sale from tomorrow: All you need to know and should you buy itALSO READ | New Dish TV game gives free monthly subscription, requires predicting winning cricket teams ALSO READ | Redmi K20, Redmi K20 Pro India launch by mid-July, will not be rebranded Poco F2 and Poco F2 ProGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
