India aim to extend winning run in fourth Test vs England

first_imgHaving already pocketed the five-match cricket Test rubber, with an unassailable 2-0 lead, a confident India will be aiming to keep the winning momentum going when they face an inconsistent England in the fourth match at the Wankhede Stadium here from Thursday. (Kohli, Pujara approaching key milestones)This will be the first instance since 1989 when India will play a Test at the Wankhede sans retired batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar.The fourth Test will also give India a chance to exact revenge for their loss in their previous two Test meetings at the ground before heading to Chennai for the final encounter.Going into Thursday’s encounter, the Virat Kohli-led side will aim to extend their dominant run despite some injury concerns in the squad.The top-order batting has clicked well for the hosts with Cheteshwar Pujara and Kohli himself exhibiting great form in the middle while all-rounders Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have handled any hiccups brilliantly lower down the order.Senior wicketkeeper-batsman Parthiv Patel, who was drafted into the national side after after an eight-year long wait, has displayed good maturity behind the stumps as well as an opening bat with scores of 42 and unbeaten 67 in the third Test at Mohali.But with the return to fitness after a forearm injury of opener Lokesh Rahul, Patel may be asked to bat down the order. (Rahul to open the innings: Kohli)Youngster Karun Nair, who made his Test debut at Mohali, looks likely to make way for Rahul.Kohli will however, be concerned with the form of opener Murali Vijay who has failed to click in this series so far.advertisementRAHANE RULED OUTKohli’s deputy Ajinkya Rahane, however, has been ruled out of the remainder of the Test rubber after the Mumbai batsman sustained an avulsion fracture on his right index finger during training on Wednesday.Manish Pandey has been named as Rahane’s replacement.The bowling department have so far fared decently with pacers Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami managing to be amongst the wickets with the new ball.SHAMI DOUBTFUL STARTERHowever, Shami’s concerns with a sore knee makes him a doubtful starter. In his absence, Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be Umesh’s likely new ball partner.Local boy Shardul Thakur has been named as a back-up option in case Shami is ruled out of the squad.The spin department, comprising the trio of Ashwin, Jadeja and Jayant Yadav have well established their supremacy over the English batsman and Kohli is likely retain the trio at the spin-friendly Wankhede.India will also aim to keep their 16-match unbeaten streak and are just one short of equalling their own unbeaten record of 17 games without a loss.On the other hand, despite conceding the series, the visitors are expected to come hard after spending a week away in Dubai.England had also replaced two injured players — teenaged opener Haseeb Hameed and left arm spinner Zafar Ansari — with two uncapped players — Keaton Jennings and Liam Dawson.For any chance of reviving their fortune in the ongoing series, the visitors will bank on their batting, which has failed to click as a unit so far.Skipper Alastair Cook will be expecting at least two of his main batsmen — Joe Root, Moeen Ali, Jos Buttler and stumper Jonny Bairstow — to spend enough time in the middle while handling the Indian spinners.Promising left-handed opener Jennings is likely to partner Cook at the top.Meanwhile, the return of pacer Stuart Broad, who missed the third game after sustaining a foot injury in the Visakhapatnam Test, will lend enough teeth to their bowling attack.The visitors are likely to go in with four pacers with leg-spinner Adil Rashid and Moeen filling the spinners’ slots.Squads:India: Virat Kohli (Captain), Murali Vijay, Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Manish Pandey, Ravichandran Ashwin, Parthiv Patel (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Amit Mishra, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Karun Nair, Jayant Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur.England: Alastair Cook (Captain), Keaton Jennings, Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Jake Ball, Gary Ballance, Gareth Batty, Stuart Broad, Jos Buttler, Ben Duckett, Steven Finn, Liam Dawson, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes.last_img read more

French Open: Rafael Nadal wins record 10th title

first_imgHis clay-court prowess as unassailable as ever, Rafael Nadal won his record 10th French Open title by dominating 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 in the final Sunday.No other man or woman has won 10 championships at the same major in the Open era, which began in 1968.The 31-year-old Nadal was overwhelmingly good from start to finish against Wawrinka – and over the past two weeks en route to La Decima, Spanish for “10th.” Not only did Nadal win every set he played in the tournament, he dropped a total of only 35 games, the second fewest by any man on the way to any title at a Grand Slam tournament in the Open era with all matches being best-of-five-sets.Along with improving to 10-0 in finals at Roland Garros, Nadal increased his career haul to 15 Grand Slam trophies, breaking a tie with Pete Sampras for second place in the history of men’s tennis, behind only rival Roger Federer’s 18.It marked a stirring return to the top for Nadal in his favorite event and on his favorite surface: Over his career, he is now 79-2 at the French Open and 102-2 in all best-of-five-set matches on clay.A year ago in Paris, Nadal surprisingly withdrew before the third round because of a wrist injury, making the announcement at a news conference while wearing a blue brace on his left arm and a look of resignation of his face. He couldn’t bring himself to watch much of the rest of the 2016 French Open, he said, other than some doubles matches involving a good pal, and the singles final.advertisementFinally back to full strength in the off-season, Nadal returned to work, reconstructing his forehand and redoubling his efforts to get back to his best.Well, he sure proved to be precisely that Sunday, when the conditions were exactly to the liking of a guy who grew up on the island of Mallorca. The sun was shining, there was barely a trace of cloud in the bright blue sky and the temperature was about 85 degrees (30 Celsius).Wawrinka is no slouch; he owns three major titles, including one from Roland Garros, and had never lost a Grand Slam final. But a five-set semifinal win Friday over No. 1-ranked Andy Murray must have taken something out of the 32-year-old from Switzerland, the oldest French Open finalist since 1973. His shots didn’t have their usual verve, his legs their usual spring. After one point Sunday, Wawrinka bent over, leaning one arm on his racket and resting the other on a knee.Instead of pointing to his right temple, as he often does after key points won, Wawrinka kept rubbing his forehead or running his fingers through his hard after key points lost. When he netted a forehand to close a 14-stroke back-and-forth in the second set, he pounded his strings on his head several times.Nadal has that way of wearing down opponents. On this day, he was nearly perfect. He won all 12 service games, saving the lone break point he faced, and made a mere 12 unforced errors.When it ended, Nadal dropped to his back on the clay, then rose and briefly pulled his blue shirt over his face. He was again the champion, again unbeatable at the French Open.last_img read more

Paul Scholes interviewed for Oldham Athletic manager’s job

first_imgPaul Scholes was interviewed for the Oldham Athletic manager’s job on Wednesday morning, with the club now deciding whether to give the former Manchester United and England midfielder the role.Scholes was formerly a coach at United but this would be his first permanent No1 position should he be appointed. Scholes is a part-owner of Salford City and he was briefly caretaker manager of the club in 2015.At United the 42-year-old was a reserve -team coach under Sir Alex Ferguson before he came out of retirement in January 2012 to resume his playing career.

Easy to Assemble, the PONS Bed Frame Charges Your Devices While You Sleep

first_img 1 of 16 Editors’ Recommendations Give Your Hypercar the Garage It Deserves with a Custom Aston Martin Lair As much as we hate to admit it, we rely on our smartphones to the point where we sleep next to them, looking at them as soon as we wake up. One survey from 2015 revealed that a whopping 71 percent of Americans sleep with or next to their mobile phone. Might as well keep it charged, right? The folks at PONS have designed a bed frame that comes with built-in USB plugs. “We came up with the idea for PONS because we wanted to solve a real problem: the tedious, irritating process of buying, assembling and enjoying a great bed,” said Gary Heiman, the CEO of PONS’s parent company, Standard Textile.Forget complicated directions and strange tools, the PONS bed frame is very easy to assemble. While PONS says that it only takes five minutes to make, it took us around 15 minutes, which is still impressive. Once the bed frame is put together, simply plug in the cord to a wall outlet, and now you have all the power you need to get you through a full night’s sleep and into the next day. “Four integrated USB ports with touch-enabled lights in the PONS bed frame allows you to easily recharge while you rest,” said Heiman.The bed frame is constructed with premium hardwoods and it comes in three hues—Driftwood, Acacia and Black. “Recognizing today’s busy consumers, who may move frequently, the design concept for PONS leverages technology and engineering to create a high-end sleep experience that ships fast and free, and comes together in minutes,” said Heiman.So not only is the PONS bed frame convenient, it adds a high-end and technologically-savvy touch to any bedroom. We highly recommend it. (We also recommend topping the bed on the PONS bed frame with The Company Store bedding.)For more information, visit ponsrevolution.com.

Province Invests in Aquatic Club Expansion

first_imgHalifax residents will have more access to swimming lessons, hiking trails, and paddling thanks to a provincial investment in the expansion of the Maskwa Aquatic Club. Minister of Health Promotion and Protection, Barry Barnet made the announcement today, April 14, at the Maskwa Aquatic Club. The $300,000 investment will be part of the $1.1 million re-development and expansion of the club. “This investment will allow the Maskwa Aquatic Club to grow and offer more opportunities for Nova Scotians to come and be physically active,” said Mr. Barnet. “We know that there is a shortage of facilities across the province and we are committed to investing new money to make physical activity accessible to all Nova Scotians.” The Maskwa Aquatic Club is a not-for-profit organization that offers outdoor recreation programs and events for all ages and abilities. The provincial investment will be used toward the overall club expansion plan which includes building more boat bays to accommodate more canoes and kayaks. Increased beach facilities for more swimming programs, and the expansion of their current trail system which will be accessible in both the summer and winter months. “The membership growth of our club has been tremendous over the past number of years,” said Sean O’Connor, vice-commodore of the Maskwa Aquatic Club. “With this investment we are able to expand and meet the growing needs of our community and provide a safe place to come and participate in water activities.” Mr. O’Connor said that one of the challenges of the past few years is that they have out grown their current clubhouse. One of the highlights of this provincial investment is the design and construction of a new larger clubhouse that they will be able to use year round. “Not only will these improvements mean more accessibility for sport and recreation but it also creates a destination for others outside the province to come and experience,” said Len Goucher, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Heritage. “Making our water ways accessible to our visitors is an key way we can encourage sport tourism.” The Maskwa Aquatic Club hopes to have the start the expansion in the coming fall and have it completed for the summer of 2008.last_img read more

In Yemen UN aid chief rallies support for relief efforts to prevent

“I have come to Aden with the first humanitarian UN flight to lend support to the humanitarians who have been working in this city and in Yemen since the conflict escalated in March 2015,” UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien told reporters there. “Today, almost 19 million people in Yemen need humanitarian assistance. Seven million people don’t know where their next meal is coming from and we now face a serious risk of famine,” he added. Mr. O’Brien said the purpose of his visit was also to meet with senior Government officials to discuss how to prevent a possible famine and how to better protect the civilians that are caught in this conflict. In Aden and the surrounding governorates, 3.1 million people need humanitarian assistance, two thirds of whom are in desperate need of food, he warned. RELATED: As Yemen’s food crisis worsens, UN agencies call for urgent assistance to avert catastropheYesterday, in meetings with President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi, Prime Minister Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr and other senior officials, the top UN aid official stressed the need for all parties to the conflict to respect international humanitarian law, protect civilians and civilian infrastructure and to allow for unimpeded and immediate full access by humanitarian partners to all of Yemen. Given the urgency of the situation, they also discussed the need to facilitate commercial imports of food, fuel and medicine, through all ports of Yemen, and the resumption of commercial flights to all of Yemen, Mr. O’Brien said. “Yesterday, I saw with my own eyes the destruction of the war and the impact on the people living in Aden,” he said, noting that he was especially pleased to know that two babies – a boy and a girl – were born while he was at a maternity hospital. “They are Yemen’s hope and future,” he said. In the Aden hub, more than 55 humanitarian organizations are working to meet pressing needs. “We are here to help and provide neutral, impartial life-saving assistance to all people in need, regardless of where they are in Yemen,” Mr. O’Brien said, stressing that there are no military solutions to this conflict and only peace can provide a lasting solution to this unfolding humanitarian crisis. read more

Inconsistency plagues Buckeyes in New York

It’s tough to say who was colder Thursday night; the students jumping in Mirror Lake or the Ohio State men’s basketball team.In the 2K Sports Classic semifinal game against No. 6 North Carolina, the Buckeyes shot a frigid 9-31 from the field in the first half, en route to a 77-73 loss.“We had a rough first half,” junior guard Jon Diebler said. “If we had come out with a little bit more intensity, the game probably would have been different.”In the second half, the Tar Heels extended their lead and were up 19 points before the Buckeyes finally made a run. Five quick points by Dieber, coupled with two free throws from junior Evan Turner, sparked a 7-0 run. The Buckeyes got as close as two points after a Diebler three-pointer with 15 seconds to go. Carolina’s Larry Drew then made two free throws to end any hope of a miracle, and the Buckeyes were handed a four-point loss. “Obviously we made a great comeback,” coach Thad Matta said. “Finally late in the second half we started making some shots and got a little rhythm to our offense. I’m proud of the way our guys fought back into it, but it obviously wasn’t enough.”The Buckeyes dug themselves too deep of a hole with their first half shooting woes. Though everyone struggled to make shots, it was sophomore William Buford who had the most trouble. Buford made only two of 10 shots in the first half and finished an abysmal 3-16 from the field.In addition to scoring difficulties, Turner struggled to hold onto the basketball. His 23 points led the team, but the Buckeye point guard turned the ball over 10 times.  “Sometimes I might have thought about the situation too much, whether I should shoot or pass, so I traveled here and there,” Turner said. “I just have to make sure it never happens again.”However, Turner and Co. had little time to work out any kinks. OSU played the following day against California in the tournament’s consolation game. Junior center Dallas Lauderdale got his first start of the season against California, completing his return from a preseason hand injury. Lauderdale scored eight points and grabbed four rebounds in 30 minutes of play.More importantly, he anchored the Buckeyes on the defensive end, blocking seven shots. “He gives us a different look both offensively and defensively,” Matta said. “He has pretty good timing. It allows us to do a little bit more on the perimeter knowing he is back there.”Friday’s game had a similar feel to Thursday’s, but with reversed roles. It was the Buckeyes that dominated the majority of the game, and with about 15 minutes to go in the game, they had a 22-point lead. Then, like OSU the night before, California began a comeback. California promptly went on a 17-2 run to cut the Buckeye lead to nine. But on the shoulders of Turner’s 22 second-half points, the Buckeyes were able to hold on and earn a 76-70 victory.  “Basketball is a game of runs,” Turner said. “Fortunately we are mature enough to keep a lead. We handled what we had to handle, and we took care of business.”Turner finished the game with 26 points and 14 rebounds and, along with Diebler and David Lighty, played all 40 minutes. Friday marked the fourth time in as many games that Turner has recorded a double-double. “It has been a good stretch of games,” Turner said. “I am just trying to play hard.”The Buckeyes return to play Lipscomb Tuesday at the Schottenstein Center. read more

CVan pass changes worry residents

first_imgC-Tran’s proposal to eliminate its daily and monthly paratransit passes will help to control costs and preserve its services, but some people worry the move would put a heavy burden on some of the service’s most dependent users.Federal law requires C-Tran to provide transit service for people with disabilities that complements its regular fixed-route bus system. C-Van accounts for 4 percent of the agency’s ridership but about 23 percent of operating costs. C-Van customers typically pay $1.80 per ride, but C-Tran’s actual cost of providing the trip is $44. Meanwhile, a fixed-route bus ride typically costs $1.80, while C-Tran’s expense to provide the ride is about $6.As the community’s population ages and more people begin to use paratransit, C-Tran wants to be sure the cost of providing the service doesn’t affect the viability of its other services in the long term.“I think there’s a misconception that agencies are worried about their bottom lines. That’s not true. We’re concerned about our customers. We need to be able to make this sustainable,” C-Tran spokeswoman Christine Selk said.About 1,270 people use C-Van every month and take about an average of 18,800 trips. But, according to Selk, of those 1,270 riders, only about 450 buy a monthly pass and only around 150 take the 33 trips required to equal its $59 cost. But the riders who do ride enough to make up the cost of a monthly pass ride a lot. Those “heavy users” take an average of 43 C-Van trips per month.last_img read more
