Cricket News Virat Kohli’s advocacy of Test cricket great for future: David Gower

first_imgNew Delhi: In modern-day cricket, there is a growing debate about how Test cricket will survive in a period when there are Twenty20 leagues flourishing all over the globe. The club vs country debate among international players often makes news. Several players have given up on their international careers to become Twenty20 mercenaries all over the world. In this atmosphere, there are certain sections of former cricketers and fans that vouch that Test cricket is the ultimate format of the game. Recently, one quote by Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli has given hope to one England cricket legend that Test cricket can flourish.Read More |Virat Kohli’s wicket celebration vs CA XI takes internet by stormFollowing India’s series loss to England, Kohli sat down for an interview with Wisden and said nothing beats the thrill of Test cricket. “If you really love the sport, you understand Test cricket and you understand how exciting it is. I cannot explain to you the job satisfaction that you get when you do well in Test cricket, because you know how demanding it is. It’s the most beautiful format of the game. I don’t think it’s going to go anywhere,” Kohli had remarked at that time.Read More |Virat Kohli’s India aim to avoid tail-ender woes in Australia TestsThese comments from Kohli have given former England batsman David Gower a lot of reassurance. The left-hander, one of the most prolific run-getters for England in the 80s, believes Kohli;s endorsement is a great sign for the survival of Tests.Read More |Hardik Pandya’s absence will be a big factor for India: Ian Chappell“It is a reflection of the balance of power if Virat says that — you’ve got a lot of people who will listen,” said the 61-year-old, adding that the launch of next year’s World Test Championship will help in the popularity of Test cricket,” Gower said during the inaugural Ranji Memorial Public Conversation on Cricket in London.Gower, who smashed 8231 runs in 117 Tests, believes a win for India in Australia will boost the popularity of the format even more and the introduction of a World Test Championship from next year will help provide greater context for matches. “We had a fantastic series against India, closer than the margin suggests,” Gower said.

Olashore  Redefining Nigerian Sports to International Standard

first_img“Aside from in- house training, we also hire someone from outside to train them. They usually embark on various field and track events in order to get well rooted in them. I encourage students to build themselves on sports because in this present day, sports is more like a money spinning sector and we need to ensure students are kept on their toes”.Similarly, the principal Mr. Derek Smith stated that as part of school’s eagerness to build 21st century leaders, children were trained to be skilled.“We want to ensure our students are trained and well skilled in sports so they can participate in competitions. As it is, we have one of our students participating in the UK. Some of our present students might grow to become even better competitors. Above all, learning to live a healthy lifestyle is key,” he said.Olashore school inter house sports ended in grand style, with Red House emerging the winner, Blue House the first runner up and Green House the second runner up, while leaving Yellow House behind.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Olashore international school is set to build an international standard set of student as far as sports is concerned.

Butch out for 4-to-6 weeks

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team’s chase for a championship — Big Ten, NCAA or otherwise — just got a little bit harder.Badgers junior Brian Butch has been diagnosed by the UW Sports Medicine staff with a dislocation and an associated fracture of the right elbow, an injury that will likely sideline the forward four to six weeks.”I’d like to thank all the fans that have expressed their concern with my condition and let them know that I will work hard to get back on the court as soon as I can,” Butch said in a statement released through the UW athletics department. “I will continue to support my teammates and hope to contribute any way I can, whether as a cheerleader or a voice of experience on the bench. I have all the confidence that my teammates can continue the success that we have started.”Butch is averaging 8.8 points and a team-leading 5.9 rebounds a game. The versatile big man was also shooting 34 percent from 3-point range.The injury all but assures Butch will be out for the remainder of the season. The NCAA Sweet Sixteen round takes place in four weeks, while the Final Four will be held the following weekend.”We know how tough it will be for Brian to have to sit out but we also know the type of person he is and how hard he will work to get back,” UW head coach Bo Ryan said in the statement. “For Brian to average close to 10 points and six rebounds a game for the last two years is a good indication of how steady a contributor he has been to our program. We will miss his energy and enthusiasm on the court but know he will still give us those things in the locker room and on the bench.”Midway through the first half of Wisconsin’s 49-48 loss to Ohio State Sunday, the two-year starter went up for a rebound and was subsequently low-bridged by a tumbling teammate, as junior Greg Stiemsma was trying to take a charge. Butch tried to break his fall and sustained the injury doing so.The McDonald’s High School All-American howled in pain immediately and had to be helped off the court. While Butch returned to the bench by the end of the game, he was seen with his arm heavily taped and in a sling.After the contest, players felt for their fallen comrade, but were quick to call on themselves to step up and pick up the slack for Butch.”There’s going to be some more minutes for other guys,” said freshman Jason Bohannon in the aftermath of Wisconsin’s loss at Ohio State. “Those guys have got to step up in the time they have and just play well and try to get the W.”Likely to see more playing time in Butch’s absence are sophomores Joe Krabbenhoft, Marcus Landry and Kevin Gullikson, as well as Stiemsma. Krabbenhoft got a surprise start Sunday over Butch, but whether he will maintain that position or make way for Landry or Stiemsma remains unclear.last_img read more

Holt: Could BCS lose anti-trust suit?

first_imgThere are a number of things in this country I’d like to see come to an end. The recession tops the list, followed by M. Night Shyamalan’s filmmaking career and the BCS. Yes, the BCS, that flawed and controversial overlord of college football. Or, in the eyes of the state of Utah, the root of all evil.After what some (read: residents of Utah) perceived as an outrageous snub, the 12-0 University of Utah was not allowed to play for the 2008-09 national title. Despite being the only undefeated team left in FBS football, the Utes were ranked sixth in the BCS standings and played Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, while Oklahoma battled Florida for the title in a matchup of one-loss teams.Apparently, the pride from throttling an uninspired Alabama team and finishing second in the final polls didn’t last very long, as Utah’s attorney general Mark Shurtleff plans to file an antitrust lawsuit against the BCS in June. When public whining by non-BCS schools and pleas to the president weren’t enough to change things, those incensed Utes decided to take things into their own hands.The lawsuit accuses the BCS of owning an unfair and harmful monopoly over college football. In many respects, Shurtleff has a legitimate argument. Only 10 teams get bids to BCS bowls, and a non-BCS school such as Utah has to play flawlessly to be one of them. It needs to finish both as its conference champion and in the top 12 of the BCS rankings to earn an automatic bid, and only one non-BCS school can receive said-bid each year. And just to rub salt in the wound, Notre Dame, which doesn’t even belong to a conference, gets in automatically if it finishes in the top eight of the BCS rankings.In addition, the amount of revenue major conference schools get from the BCS dwarfs that of the Hawaiis and Boise States of the world. While the BCS distributed $70 million total to the non-BCS conferences since it was instituted, ESPN reported that it paid $18 million each year to the major conferences.So yes, the BCS is the jerk in Monopoly who buys every property just because he can, while Utah is stuck with a house on Baltic Avenue and a sour attitude. But a number of purely football-related reasons indicate the messy affair this lawsuit is bound to become.Utah will point to the fact it is the only non-BCS team to win two BCS bowls. Their 21-0 first- quarter lead over Alabama in the ’09 Sugar Bowl — good. The fact the Crimson Tide players looked like they would rather be eating glass than playing that game — not so good. That incredible 2007 Fiesta Bowl victory by Boise State will probably be pointed to as well. Hawaii’s 41-10 loss in the 2008 Sugar Bowl might be conveniently forgotten.Shurtleff won’t be alone in the suit either; he’s gathering allies to form a Justice League of Football as I write this. However, his only hope might be if some of the big boy BCS schools decide to take up the cause. Perhaps the Badgers could be motivated to join the fight? As recently as the 2006-07 season, they finished 12-1 with a top 10 ranking, yet did not play in a BCS bowl due to rules stating only two teams per conference may do so (thanks, Michigan and OSU).Texas Tech might have something to say as well. After all, the Red Raiders weren’t too happy about being odd man out in a Big 12 where Texas got a BCS bid despite losing to the Raiders in their head-to-head matchup.More than likely, the lawsuit will result more in publicity and courtroom bickering than in the end of the BCS. According to ESPN, if Utah wins the suit, the BCS would have to restructure and pay damages to any “states and universities harmed by the BCS.” That’s a lot of money. Luckily, after signing a $500 million TV contract, the BCS can afford lots of big defense attorneys, who will likely use lots of big words to make this into a bigger deal than it needs to be.Ultimately, I don’t think the lawsuit will succeed. There’s too much subjectivity involved and, ironically, subjectivity is what the BCS was created to fix. I don’t even necessarily think this is the right way to go about changing things.However, by actually doing something, Shurtleff is at least taking a step toward fixing the problem. Unfortunately, money can go a long way, so the chances we get playoffs in FBS football are about as good as the odds Utah accepts a settlement just to shut up.last_img read more

Breaking barriers

first_imgProfessor Karen Tongson, who began working at USC 15 years ago, has taught courses that explore LGBTQ studies, American popular culture and creative writing. (Twesha Dikshit | Daily Trojan) “The main thing that I said on social media and that I’ve said elsewhere is that I may be the first but I certainly won’t be the last,” Tongson said. “And so among the things that I’ve certainly devoted myself to is mentoring other scholars of color, other women scholars of color in my different departments, making sure that they know the process, that it isn’t mystified to them and that they know how to get to this point.” Tongson has taught a variety of classes at USC, including “Seminar in Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Studies,” “Introduction to American Popular Culture” and a Maymester course “Gender, Sexuality and Food Cultures in the U.S.”  “We just assumed it’s a hard road being a woman of color in academia, but really after we learned she got full professorship — that she was, in fact, the first — it came as a bit of a shock to us,” Eo said. “It’s just kind of a reflection of how difficult things can be for minorities to survive in academia.”   Currently minority groups make up 19% of tenured professors in the arts and humanities at USC. This is more than three percent less in comparison to the University as a whole, which has 23% minority groups in tenure. 30% minority groups are currently on track in the arts and humanities to gain tenure, according to USC institutional research data from 2016. Roman also said with the under-representation of Filipino scholars, Tongson serves as an example for both the community and for other faculty members to follow. “I’ve taught such a range of different courses for undergraduates and graduate students,” Tongson said. “I love teaching my graduate seminars — I especially like teaching graduate seminars where there is not only a kind of critical intellectual component, it’s usually on LGBT studies, but [also] one that has a creative writing component.” “I think what excites me about working with her is that she’s so open and excited about new ideas,” Dunn said. “It can be difficult and a little bit scary as a Ph.D. student to, especially in the beginning, bring your ideas to someone who’s such a senior faculty.” Receiving a promotion to full professor in the English Department includes requirements of publishing peer-reviewed papers and two single-authored books, serving on department committees and continuing to teach as well.  “We give so much of ourselves for our students … sometimes that also means that we kind of put some of our own work on the back burner,” Tongson said.   Tongson came to USC in Fall 2005 to begin her first tenure-track academic job after completing fellowships at UC San Diego and UC Irvine and graduating from UC Berkeley in 2003 with a doctorate in English. Reflecting on her past 15 years teaching here, Tongson said that her time here has passed very quickly and been full of surprises. She said being a female professor of color has meant having to serve as a role model for minority students and mentoring them as an educator.  Tongson, who teaches English, gender and sexuality studies and American studies and ethnicity, said that she hopes to use this promotion as a way to encourage ambition within her own students. Getting the position means having a chance to mentor students make sure other professors with similar goals have someone to reach out to for advice about the process.center_img Kyunghee Eo, a graduate student studying English and gender studies, said Tongson serves as an inspiration to many students because of how she has dealt with challenges as a queer woman of color in academia. Eo said that as more female students, queer students and students of color join the department, they benefit from working with faculty like Tongson who can relate with them and serve as a mentor.  When she first entered college, professor Karen Tongson wanted to teach high school. A few years later, she decided teaching at the community college level was for her. Fast forward another few years and Tongson, then a graduate student, began imagining herself as a faculty member at a research university.  “Her position will be enormously inspiring to younger faculty members, who can see a role model now,” Roman said. “That’s always the thrill of seeing someone you know break a glass ceiling is that they become enormously inspirational figures.” “It was very shocking for me to hear that would be the case if my promotion went through, given that the school has been around since 1880,” Tongson said. “But also because I myself was mentored by so many tremendous female professors of color in this department.” Dunn also said that while he isn’t surprised that institutions have been slow at promoting minorities in academia, he was surprised to hear Tongson would be the first woman of color in the English Department to become a full professor. “She probably shouldn’t have had to hustle quite so hard to get where she is,” Dunn said. “I’m sure that part of that is because she’s facing these institutional barriers. [It’s] really inspiring to see someone with that kind of drive and excitement for their profession, so I think she’s a really great role model for us.” David Roman, a professor of English and American studies and ethnicity, has mentored Tongson and seen the work she has published in diverse fields including gender studies, literary studies, popular culture, critical race studies and queer theory prior to getting her position. He said he helped her navigate through the resistance she faced as a faculty member of color.  Now, after 15 years as an associate professor at USC, Tongson is the first woman of color to be promoted to the rank of full professor in the English Department of the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. “As a senior person of color in the department and as the first out queer professor of color in the department, the most important thing that I’ve been tracking with Karen is maintaining the quality of the work and helping her succeed professionally,” Roman said.  Eliot Dunn, a graduate student studying English, first met Tongson as a prospective student in the program. In the four years he has known her, he has taken her classes and worked with her on his writings and dissertation, which she is directing.last_img read more

Lukaku Brace Lifts United, Lloris Saves Spurs in Derby Draw

first_imgRiyad Mahrez fired Manchester City back to the top of the Premier League as the champions won 1-0 against Bournemouth, while Hugo Lloris saved Tottenham in their draw with north London rivals Arsenal yesterday.Pep Guardiola’s side sit two points above Liverpool thanks to Mahrez’s second-half winner at Dean Court. The only frustration for City in a hard-fought victory were injuries to Kevin De Bruyne and John Stones, which could significantly impact their bid to win an unprecedented quadruple.De Bruyne hobbled off after the Belgian midfielder suffered a hamstring injury in the first half.City, who are already without injured duo Fernandinho and Aymeric Laporte, also lost England defender Stones with a groin problem just after the interval.But, showing the depth of City’s squad, it was Mahrez, who had come on for De Bruyne, who finally gave the champions the lead in the 55th minute. Mahrez claimed his first league goal since December, the Algeria winger driving his shot under Bournemouth ‘keeper Artur Boruc.“We made one of our best performances. People should understand how difficult it is to attack 11 players who are defending,” Guardiola said.“We demand a lot of the players without giving them the time to rest physiologically, that is why it is incredible. No matter what happens this season they deserve my admiration.”At Wembley, Lloris saved a 90th-minute penalty as Tottenham salvaged a 1-1 draw in a pulsating derby. Mauricio Pochettino’s side fell behind in the 16th minute when Aaron Ramsey slotted home from Alexandre Lacazette’s pass.But Harry Kane won a controversial 74th-minute penalty to equalise for Tottenham. Kane was offside when Christian Eriksen sent over a free-kick, but the flag stayed down and the England striker was bundled over by Shkodran Mustafi.Kane calmly notched his 22nd goal of the season and his ninth in nine Premier League games against the Gunners.Arsenal had a golden opportunity to take the points when Davinson Sanchez was penalised for a soft challenge on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.Referee Anthony Taylor felt the minimal contact was enough to justify a penalty, but Lloris came to Tottenham’s rescue as the France star dived to his right to keep out Aubameyang’s low penalty.Arsenal finished a bruising contest with 10 men after Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira was sent off for a studs-up foul on Danny Rose.“VAR is coming to help them,” Arsenal manager Unai Emery grumbled when asked about Tottenham’s equaliser.The dramatic finale ensured Pochettino, celebrating his 47th birthday, avoided a third successive defeat as Tottenham’s record run of 33 league games without a draw came to an end.“Lloris’ save was a massive present. I am so happy because we didn’t deserve to lose the game – we were better than them,” Pochettino said.Third-placed Tottenham remain four points ahead of Arsenal as the fight for Champions League qualification heats up.Arsenal dropped to fifth place after Manchester United moved one point above them.Federer wins 100th ATP title in DubaiRoger Federer has won his 100th ATP Tour title at the Dubai Tennis Championships – 6,600 days after winning his first in Milan. The 37-year-old Swiss – a 20-time Grand Slam champion – beat Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-4 6-4.Federer’s first ATP title came at the Milan Indoors on 4 February, 2001, when he beat Frenchman Julien Boutter.“It is an absolute dream come true right now,” said Federer, who will become world number four tomorrow.He is just the second man, after American Jimmy Connors in 1983, to reach the landmark.“I’m delighted. It’s great to win my eighth here in Dubai and in combination with my 100th singles title,” he added. “To win in Marseille and then come here was difficult for Stefanos.“I don’t know if Stefanos was born when I won my first title (he was, in August 1998). It’s a privilege [to play against possible future champions] because I’ll be watching them on the TV. It was a treat to play Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi. I’m sure Stefanos will have a wonderful career.“Tennis is in good hands regardless if I’m there or not.”Federer broke Tsitsipas, 20, in the first game of the match before saving two break points at 5-4 to see out the first set.The Greek – who will break into the world top 10 for the first time tomorrow – held his nerve in the second set until 4-4, before Federer broke his serve once again to wrap up the final in 69 minutes.World number 11 Tsitsipas was Federer’s 50th different final opponent and the 25th different nationality.Federer will have to win 10 more titles to beat Connors’ men’s record of 109, while Martina Navratilova holds the all-time record having won 167 women’s singles crowns during her career.RESULTS & FIXTURESTottenham 1 – 1 ArsenalBournemouth 0 – 1 Man CityBrighton 1 – 0 HuddersfieldBurnley 1 – 3 Crystal PalaceMan United 3 – 2 SouthamptonWolves 2 – 0 CardiffWest Ham 2 – 0 Newcastle UnitedLazio 3 – 0 RomaReal Madrid 0-1 BarcelonaWatford v Leicester 1pmFulham v Chelsea 3:05pmEverton v Liverpool 5:15pmNapoli v Juventus 8:30pmShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Manchester United moved into fourth place in the Premiership table with a dramatic 3-2 win against struggling Southampton at Old Trafford yesterday.Yan Valery smashed a fierce drive past United goalkeeper David De Gea for a memorable first goal of the young Southampton defender’s career in the 26th minute.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team equalised in the 53rd minute as Brazilian midfielder Andreas Pereira bagged his first Premier League goal with a long-range curler.Romelu Lukaku, back in form after a long barren spell, put United in front six minutes later with a composed finish.James Ward-Prowse drew fourth-bottom Southampton level with a superb 75th-minute free-kick.However, in the 89th minute, Belgian forward Lukaku made it four goals in two games with the last-gasp winner.Paul Pogba’s stoppage-time penalty was saved by Angus Gunn, but Solskjaer’s unbeaten domestic run as United boss has now reached 15 games.“The belief is there, they have gone so long without losing games (domestically). The dressing room is bouncing at the moment. They were class finishes from Romelu,” Solskjaer said.last_img read more
