Cricket News Spoke about building partnership with Ishant Sharma: Ravindra Jadeja

first_imgRavindra Jadeja slammed a gritty fifty to help India to 297 all out.Ishant Sharma picked up his ninth five-wicket haul.Jadeja and Ishant shared a 60-run stand for the eighth wicket. New Delhi: India started off poorly on day 2 of the first Test against West Indies in Antgua, losng Rishabh Pant for 24. However, Ravindra Jadeja batted with confidence and shared a partnership of 60 for the eighth wicket with Ishant Sharma, who hit 19 and consumed plenty of deliveries to frustrate West Indies. The duo batted for over 19 overs and India ended on 297 all out. Boosted by the performance of the lower order, Ishant led the charge and took 5/42 as West Indies were left reeling at 189/8. Speaking after the end of the day’s play, Jadeja said it was important to build a partnership with the lower order as that would frustrate the West Indies team.”I was constantly talking to Ishant that we should stay in the middle for as long as possible. That was the thought process. We knew if we kept believing in our defence and technique, then we can stay out in the middle. We were not thinking far ahead but taking one over at a time. I was positive in my mind, my shot selection was positive. When Rishabh got out, I was talking to Ishant about building a partnership and luckily we had a 50-plus partnership. In Test cricket, if the lower order like number 8, 9, 10 batsmen scored runs, the opponent bowlers get irritated and not good for them (opponents). So, it was the game plan,” Jadeja said. Ishant’s spell of 5/42 was his ninth five-wicket haul and third in the Caribbean and Jadeja was full of praise for Ishant’s bowling as he bowled the right length and line on this wicket. “Ishant bowled well. The two caught and bowled (of Kraigg Brathwaite and Shimron Hetmyer) were remarkable, and I believe those two dismissals were the turning point. For a fast bowler, to take those return catches after so much of bowling is tremendous. On this wicket, you have to bowl in right areas. Ishant’s rhythm improved with each over. He was also getting the swing as the ball got older, there was bounce and good carry and I think that helped him. If he did not hold on to two return catches, the situation might have been different. Those two dismissals helped us in turning the momentum into our side,” Jadeja remarked. India would be determined to bowl West Indies out for under 200 and build a hefty lead as they look to get their World Test Championship campaign going with a bang. highlightscenter_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Silva’s Late Strike Gives Man City 13th Consecutive Win

first_imgDavid Silva won it for City, acrobatically converting a Kevin de Bruyne pass with seven minutes left.Victory meant Pep Guardiola’s side re-established their eight-point lead over Manchester United, who they play at Old Trafford next Sunday.They have also equalled the longest winning run within a top-flight season, matching Sunderland and Preston (1891-92), Arsenal (2001-02) and Chelsea (2016-17).West Ham, though, have set a club record for the fewest points after 15 Premier League matches – they have just 10.The Londoners had their chances – as well as Ogbonna’s goal, Michail Antonio almost pounced when Ederson spilled the ball, and Manuel Lanzini forced the goalkeeper to save at his near post.But it always looked as though City’s pressure would tell and, shortly after De Bruyne’s free-kick was palmed away, Gabriel Jesus skipped through and slid the ball to Otamendi, who scored.Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling, De Bruyne and Jesus had further chances before Silva won it for the home side, but there was still time for the Hammers to go close, with Diafra Sakho shooting just wide after Marko Arnautovic pulled the ball back.Silva’s strike made this the fourth game in a row City have won thanks to a goal scored in or after the 83rd minute. Raheem Sterling had scored the past three, having also hit an injury-time winner at Bournemouth in August.A home victory always looked the likeliest result, with City extending their unbeaten run in all competitions to 28 matches.They were made to fight for the points, though, and Silva’s late winner was one of 18 shots they had in the second half.While City have been in full flow for much of the season, they have also shown their resilience – taking a league-high 10 points from losing positions.That combination of silk and steel has taken them eight points clear at the top, and it will take something special to stop them.>Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram  EPLManchester City came from behind to win a record-equalling 13th Premier League match in a row with victory over stubborn West Ham at Etihad Stadium.Angelo Ogbonna’s header on the stroke of half-time put the lowly Hammers ahead, but Nicolas Otamendi responded with a predatory finish shortly after the break.last_img read more

Kyler Murray touts knowledge of Cardinals’ secret offense

first_img Cardinals to induct Carson Palmer into ring of honor Veteran receiver Larry Fitzgerald teased last week about how knowledgeable Murray is of the offensive playbook, which he confirmed during mandatory minicamp.“Is it true? I’d say obviously I’m more familiar with it,” Murray told reporters Tuesday . “Coach Kingsbury obviously knows it the best. But yeah, obviously with (Fitzgerald) being a veteran and not having to come to every OTA and stuff like that and me being there every day, studying every day, yes, I do know it better. Related News “But that’s my job.”#LIVE : Kyler Murray Press Conference.— Arizona Cardinals (@AZCardinals) June 11, 2019Kingsbury also confirmed that Murray knows the playbook and that most quarterbacks should be able to understand it, but wouldn’t offer much more insight.“I think there’s probably some truth to that, having played in a similar system for all those years,” Kingsbury said of Murray . “Christian Kirk has a good feel for it as well, I’d say. Some of the terminology and concepts are really similar to what they’ve both done before.”Murray was selected with the No. 1 overall pick out of Oklahoma, and Kingsbury indicated the offense is similar to the Sooners’ high-power tempo. However, this is the NFL and Kingsbury said there would be some growing pains and adjustments as Murray gets used to being a professional. Everyone will have to wait for the NFL season to start before they can see how the Cardinals’ offense will unfold.Until then, new coach Kliff Kingsbury is keeping the team’s offensive tactics under wraps, but one thing has leaked out — rookie quarterback Kyler Murray knows the system inside and out. Jadeveon Clowney still not close on a deal with Texans “I like his attitude because he’s going to take chances,” Kingsbury said. “And this is the time to do it. See what you can get away with. If you want to go at Pat (Peterson) a couple of times, it’s usually all it takes to learn. But no, he’s aggressive by nature the way he thinks and attacks when he’s out on the football field and I like that.”As for whether the offense has a special name? Murray wouldn’t budge.“No. It’s an offense,” Murray said. “It’s an explosive offense.” Patrick Peterson surprises Cardinals by attending OTAs despite suspensionlast_img read more

Gautam Gambhir calls for a day-night Ranji Trophy final

Powered by Firework Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir has asked BCCI president Sourav Ganguly to arrange a Ranji Trophy final under the floodlights following India’s successful maiden pink ball Test against Bangladesh at Kolkata. The match saw a massive attendance on the first three days and even tickets for day four was completely sold out in no time.Advertisement “I was at Eden Gardens and the Pink Ball Test was done really well by Sourav Ganguly and his team. There was just enough hype and drama around the game,” Gambhir wrote in a column.Advertisement “I was happy to see that fans’ interest was not compromised. I’d now request Dada to have a Ranji Trophy final with a pink ball.”The left hander also reckons that Virat Kohli should accept Australian skipper Tim Paine’s challenge to play a day-night Test at Adelaide next year. During the 2018-19 tour a pink ball Test was supposed to be held at the South Australian capital but India refused to play that game.Advertisement “I like the way Australia skipper Tim Paine has ‘flighted’ one for India captain Virat Kohli, challenging him to play a day-night fixture on the next tour Down Under. Knowing Virat he is not the one to back out.“And why should he? A day-night Test match between India and Australia at Brisbane or the MCG will be quite a spectacle. And you can trust Aussies to make it a truly memorable game by some smart marketing.“I haven’t seen Virat’s response for Paine but if I was him I would have straight away told him to make some late night babysitting arrangements as we were ready!” he concluded.

first_imgNacho Vidal has shown these complicated days for everyone, their enormous solidarity and their desire to contribute their grain of sand to make confinement less difficult, especially for the little ones. As he showed through his social networks, he wanted to have a detail with his little neighbor, Odei. This was his birthday and the red defender wanted to leave him a little surprise at the door of his house; a note and signed photos for Odei and her sisters. The man from Alicante accompanied the surprise photo for his neighbor with this text: “I have a neighbor, Odei, who misses El Sadar as much as I do. Yesterday I wanted to leave the doormat for him and his sisters, a small gift so they don’t forget that we will see each other again soon ”. But the story did not end there and the surprised ended up being Nacho. Also through his networks, he said: “This morning the doorbell rang. It was little Odei and he would bring me this cake that he has made to celebrate his birthday. I have not been able to hug him, but I wish him a happy day. The smile still lasts. Thank you for reminding me that the simplest things are always the best. ”Nacho Vidal’s gesture reinforces the message of encouragement that he sent to all the fans from Rojas a few days ago., given the complicated situation that is being experienced: “A lot of strength and a lot of encouragement to endure this situation, which is difficult for everyone. I want to tell fans to stay active, to find things that they are passionate about and can do at home. Let them try to carry it as well as possible. And as for the competition, that they continue to feel Osasuna as they do, which has always given us a lot. And when this resumes, let them be with us. ”last_img read more

Dr. Bour Resigns as LICC President

first_imgThe President of the Liberia International Christian College (LICC), Dr. Sei Bour, has resigned for what he referred to as ‘administrative reason.’Located in Ganta, the commercial hub of Nimba County LICC is one of the newly established colleges in Liberia. The college Board is yet to inform the public the official reason for Dr. Bour’s resignation, but in email exchanges, where his letter of resignation, dated July 4, was attached, Dr. Bour said he cared deeply about the college, “but the issues of negativity have forced me to reassess my position as the president of LICC. Therefore I must make the difficult, but necessary choices that the best for the college, me and my family is to resign.” Earlier, he said in the opening paragraph of his letter, “When I accepted to serve as president of LICC, I did so with a vision to build this institution into excellence with a focus on the success of the academy and its students.”He maintained that despite all his achievements, which included the purchase of 24 acres of land, erecting multipurpose buildings on the campus, and the hiring of competent faculty and staff, it appeared there was a lack of agreement between him and the Board of Directors – a situation which, he said, likely undermined LICC’s mission to help rebuild Liberia’s educational standards.“There is no doubt the recent lack of agreement between myself and the ULICAF Board of Directors has been significant and distracting to our mission of helping to rebuild our nation through education at LICC,” Dr. Bour said. ULICAF is the United Liberia Inland Church Associates and Friends. He thanked the Board of Directors and all ULICAF members who gave him the opportunity to serve, congratulating them for their achievement since the LICC was established.Dr. Sei Bour, who has since left for the United States of America, expressed appreciation for the time and experiences with the college.There has been no response from the Board, since the news of Bour’s resignation started circulating in the county, as efforts since Sunday, October 9, to get a comment from Acting Board Chair Dehpue Zuo through Facebook messages have so far not materialized. However, an administrative assistant in the president’s office, Henrietta Barhn, posted on her Facebook page that a man identified as Dr. James N. Kermue was introduced by Rev. Karney Dunah, founding member of ULICAF, as interim president of the college.Established by the United Liberia Inland Church Associates and Friends (ULICAF), the LICC was launched in 2009 with a vision to make available Christ-centered, affordable, and relevant educational opportunities and programs to Liberian students.The visionary leaders of UNICAF began their ministry in the United States of America with the intention to help Liberian refugees settle in their new culture and community in the USA. The LICC has a complex built on 24 acres of land in Ganta City, including a modern community research center (library and technology center), an academic building and an under-construction three storey building for the College of Agriculture.The institution has held four graduations since it was established, and offers Associate of Arts (AA) degrees in Pastoral Theology/Mission, Education, Management, Accounting and Agriculture.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Horse town to get 315 houses

first_img“Because it’s just really good due to the water supply problems in the area.” There is only scattered development around the project site, mostly ranch-style homes on bigger lots than the project will have. The developer, B&C Land and Water, says the houses on its project could sell for $1million or more, and it expects many buyers to be horse riders. “It’s a very tranquil, very gorgeous setting for anyone to live (in),” said Dennis Bushore, project manager for B&C Land and Water. Open space will account for 73 percent of the project, including some large hills, Sackett said. AGUA DULCE – Rural Agua Dulce will become a little more developed after a vote Wednesday by the Regional Planning Commission allowing construction of 247 houses. The houses will be built on 2-acre lots, between Sierra Highway and the Antelope Valley Freeway. Sixty-eight homes were approved five years ago, so the total project will have 315 houses. The project will include a water reclamation plant and import water from a pipeline, so it will not deplete groundwater sources. “It’s a real benefit for the project, and it’s probably one of the reasons the commission voted unanimously for it,” said Jodie Sackett, a planner with the Department of Regional Planning. A slightly larger version of the project was approved in 1994, but that project was delayed because the developer was waiting for a reclamation plant to be built in the area as part of another project. Now, the developer has eliminated 24 lots from the project to build the tract’s own water reclamation plant, which will provide water for lawns and landscaping. Final approvals on the 908-acre project will take a year, and after that, homes will be built in stages to meet market demand, Bushore said. Agua Dulce Town Council member Don Henry said the community would prefer no growth in the area, but realizes that’s impossible. “I think people finally realize that it’s here, and they like the rural atmosphere,” he said. “And I think that’s why people move out here, is to get away from the city-size lots, and they like the horse theme that most of the community maintains.” (661) 257-5253160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
