Cricket News Women’s World T20: Harmanpreet Kaur’s India aim to sustain momentum vs Pakistan

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: The Indian cricket team got their Women’s World T20 2018 campaign off to a great start with a 34-run win over New Zealand in Providence, Guyana. Harmanpreet Kaur, the skipper, led from the front with a historic century and she will be buoyed to sustain the momentum against arch-rivals Pakistan in their next game.Kaur has acquired a reputation for her big knocks on the big stage. Once in the zone, no bowling attack in the world can stop her from clearing the ropes effortlessly. The Indian skipper was given great support by 18-year-old Jemimah Rodrigues and the middle order made up for the poor start given by the top order.Read More |India eye clean sweep in Twenty20s, West Indies aim to end positivelyIf there is one area of concern for the Indian batting, it is the openers with Smriti Mandhana and Taniya Bhatia. Mandhana, in particular, has endured a lean patch in Twenty20 Internationals, managing just three fifties in 15 innings. Kaur’s team will receive a major boost if Mandhana can repeat her heroics during the 2017 World Cup.Read More | We cannot get too carried away: Real Kashmir coachThe bowling is also in good shape, thanks to the exploits of legspinner Poonam Yadav and offspinner Dayalan Hemlatha. The slow and low nature of the Providence wicket was exploited brilliantly by the two bowlers, who ended up with three wickets apiece. These two bowlers will be the key in this campaign if India are to go all the way.Pakistan struggleOn the other hand, Pakistan has not had an ideal build-up to the World T20 competition. Just before this competition, they had a three-match series against Australia and they were blanked 3-0. The scores by Pakistan in the series were 131,101 and 97. Even in the opening game against the same opponents, they could manage just 113 to lose the encounter by 52 runs.Pakistan’s batting as well as their bowling has been a major concern. The bowlers, in fact, have bowled out oppositions only twice in the last 12 games while the batting has not seen too many big scores. However, against India, they will have an extra sense of motivation to turn their poor form around. In five games in the World T20, Pakistan have won twice and lost three games. Their last win came in 2016 when they won a rain-curtailed encounter at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi by two runs.A win for India will put them in a great position to enter the semi-final while Pakistan would be hoping to surprise Kaur’s side and throw the entire group wide open. last_img read more

GTT National Indoor Hockey Championships to begin on Monday

first_imgTHE annual GTT National Indoor Hockey Championships will return to the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall for the first time in seven years as the Guyana Hockey Board (GHB) stages its first tournament on the newly installed tiled floor.The tournament has been sponsored by the communications giant for seventeen years and is the top local indoor competition that determines the annual national champions.The competition commences earlier this year as the GHB gears up for the Indoor Pan American Cup to be contested mid-October this year.In order to prepare for the International event, the GHB will use the National Championships as a test event to ensure all systems are in working order.To maximise the benefit to the local national teams, both male and female national teams will compete although they will not be eligible for trophies.The competition features four divisions – Men’s First Division, Men’s Second Division, Ladies and Veterans (Over-35).Pizza Hut GCC striker Sonia Jardine turns Hikers midfielder Nicole Eastman.Despite being three-time champions, the favourites, PEPSI Hikers, will now be without their fantastic four in Robert France, Andrew Stewart, Jamarj Assanah and Aroydy Branford, who will all be making an appearance for the national BLACKS.The club still boasts a solid line-up with veteran Shane Samuels expected to fill the void along with goalkeeper Jason ‘Puzzle’ Hoyte.Old Fort without the likes of the dynamic Aderemi Simon and skilful Jason De Santos will capitalise on its depth of quality to offer good opposition for the top spot.Bounty GCC and Saints are also poised to topple the defending champs with their strong junior teams who competed well in the most recent competition.Pizza Hut GCC have lost six players who have all been called up for national duty but remain the solid favourites to win gold. The defending champions, who have not losted the competition in ten years, will need to bring their A game to hold off the challenges of the new teams in contention.Old Fort have been creeping up the ranks over the past eight years, led by Boshani Kaladeen and Tamala Glen. They will pose a potent attack that will be hard for opponents to handle.The Bingo Spartans are eager to contest their second indoor tournament and are a fast-improving side while new entrants, SIDM, will take the floor in an effort to make the record books as the first debutants to hoist the trophy.Defending veteran champions, GCC Vintage, are strong favourites for the over-35 division while the Old Fort Warriors are expected to have the edge in the men’s 2nd division. Both divisions, however, promise to be competitive as no team has retained the trophy for more than two consecutive years.Matches start on Monday September 25 from 17:00hrs and the finals will be contested on Saturday September 30. Men’s national selections, the BLACKS and the GREENS will play an exhibition match right before the final presentation.last_img read more

Filmmakers discuss new docuseries

first_imgThe lights dimmed in the auditorium as the film began to play. Actress Amy Poehler’s face filled the projector screen as she interviewed a California domestic worker on her experiences in the new docuseries America Divided, produced by panelists Norman Lear, Solly Granatstein, Mark Greenberg and Leah Natasha Thomas. The filmmakers met on Wednesday in the Annenberg Auditorium to discuss the EPIX original docuseries.The panel featured Lear, Granatstein, Greenberg and Thomas, as well as Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism Dean Ernest Wilson III and Price School of Public Policy Dean Jack Knott. The panel was moderated by USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy Global Director Bonnie Reiss. The directors began the panel by explaining what they hoped the docuseries would accomplish. Greenberg explained that, instead of trying to provide a clear solution to current-day problems, they wanted instead to provide a new and unique perspective about people’s lives and conditions instead. “We were really trying to shed a light on what we saw as the critical issues plaguing society,” Granatstein said. “We weren’t trying to prescribe a solution because the issues are complicated. Instead, this project’s purpose was to show that the first part of bridging the gap is trying to understand the other side.”Lear recalled his astonishment at learning Brooklyn’s low-income living conditions in comparison to the million-dollar apartments across town. “I had no idea that I would be so profoundly disturbed and informed from this project,” Lear said. “It isn’t until you’re standing in a $1.2 million apartment, learning that it was bought with money that was parked there by faceless international millionaires; and then later in the afternoon you’re sitting with 50 tenants who are being forced out by landlords who are doing everything they can to get them out there that you realize just the magnitude of the inequity in this country.” Having finished the production for the first season of America Divided, panelists reflected on the current political climate. Although most of them agreed that the average welfare of the American citizen has improved over the past decades, they also agreed that the country is now more divided than it was before. “The divide is deep, and it’s multifaceted,” Greenberg said. “And part of it is from people who feel left out, feel left behind, are angry and have decided to express that by voting for a conservative candidate. The other part is from people who feel left out, unheard, have lost hope in our political system and have as a result given up on voting. And because of that we have a gap in communication, in understanding.”Moving forward, Lear and Greenberg offered myriad proposals to unite the country. Two of them included increased communication and increased empathy.“What we’re doing here, causing conversation, is so important,” Lear said. “To look at this film and see and learn isn’t enough. To look at it and talk to someone and get the conversation going is critical to bridge the divide.”Wilson explained that empathy sounds simple and cliche, but in reality it is difficult to achieve.“One of the reasons we’re so divided politically is that we’re so stuck in our own pain, that we’re so stuck in our grievances that we really can’t deal with other people’s pain,” Wilson said. “And we tend to think of empathy as passive. But lately after having conversations with activists, I realized it takes a kind of courage to be empathetic.”last_img read more

Allie Munroe refines her game to bolster Syracuse’s defense

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 4, 2015 at 11:57 pm Contact Chris: cfthomse@syr.edu Robert Morris’ Britney Howard glided down the ice on Saturday afternoon with only one skater to beat, Syracuse freshman Allie Munroe.Howard slowed as she approached the net, forcing Munroe to skate toward RMU’s leading goal scorer. But Howard extended her hands past Munroe’s body, firing a shot that skirted SU goalie Jenn Gilligan.The goal was all Robert Morris needed to beat the Orange, as the third-period empty-net goal cemented a 2-0 loss.While Munroe’s mistake was costly, it proved as a learning experience for the young defender. She’s still adapting her talent to a new pace of play while being thrown into unfamiliar territory as a starter.“Young players are going to make mistakes,” Syracuse head coach Paul Flanagan said. “No one felt worse about it than (Munroe).”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMunroe and the Syracuse (4-5, 2-1 College Hockey America) defense may face their toughest conference opponent twice this weekend in Lindenwood (3-4-1, 1-0-1), led by CHA leading scorer, Shara Jasper. With a potential conference title in sight this season, Munroe continues to refine her game to bolster SU’s defense.As Munroe learns the complexities of collegiate hockey, she holds a great advantage: no one on Syracuse’s roster has been forced to change her playing style as many times as Munroe.She didn’t grow up playing organized hockey with girls because no leagues existed in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Munroe’s hometown. Instead, she competed with boys.“I got a little tougher that way,” Munroe said. “I learned to keep my head up.”But she had to stop checking when she arrived to New Hampton (New Hampshire) School to play competitive hockey against girls. With a toned down physical approach, she had more time to make decisions with the puck.The transition was seamless as she notched 53 points in 63 games, becoming a New Hampshire state all-star.“I give her a ton of credit from transitioning from prep school to being a solid Division I player,” Flanagan said. “She’s one of the better recruits we’ve been able to land here.”Munroe blew teammates away in Syracuse’s first practices of the season. She never shied away from the puck, making impressive shots and taking leadership on defense. Her talent propelled her to the first line on opening night, and she hasn’t left it since.The freshman’s quick, accurate passing stood out immediately to defender Heather Schwarz.“It’s almost as if she’s been playing college hockey for years now,” Schwarz said. “I can always rely on her to give it to me on the tape of my stick and get it out really easily.”After slowing down when transitioning from boys’ to girls’ hockey, Munroe’s latest adjustment has been acclimating herself to a smarter style of hockey than she has played in the last four years.Flanagan noticed Munroe’s difficulty keeping up against St. Lawrence, which he believes will improve with more game experience.“It was a fast game,” Flanagan said. “She wasn’t terrible, but I could tell when she came off the ice that she wasn’t pleased with herself. Hopefully, that’s just a little dip.” Commentslast_img read more

Clayton Kershaw goes to Injured List with back stiffness

first_img“I think that the disappointment, for me, is for Clayton, because he’s as prepared as any player I’ve ever been around and starting on Opening Day means a lot to him. For him to not get to experience it for the night, I think I just feel for him.”Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire “His back stiffened up and he got treatment on it that night, felt better,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “Yesterday (Wednesday), he came in, felt a little bit better. Then this morning, just (talking) with the training staff, just to make sure we err on the side of caution, we didn’t feel that it was prudent to start him.”Roberts would not speculate on how long Kershaw will be sidelined but did say he would be eligible to come off the IL next week when the Dodgers are in Arizona.“I don’t know the timetable. And I don’t think it’d be too responsible to try to take a stab,” Roberts said. “I just hope that every day he gets better and better and we can get him on the mound again as soon as possible.”May, 22, becomes the Dodgers’ youngest Opening Day starter since a slightly-younger 22-year-old Fernando Valenzuela started the opener in 1983. May was not on the initial season-opening roster announced by the Dodgers Thursday morning but was recalled and added to the roster. Roberts said May was put on alert Wednesday and did not throw to hitters as originally planned.“He’s just very unflappable,” Roberts said of May. “He’s a very confident young man. He’s got obviously really good stuff. So it’s something where when a change of plans happens, Dustin adjusts very well.

None were part of Opening Day 2020.For the second season in a row, Kershaw will open the regular season on the Injured List. In 2019, his franchise-record run of eight consecutive season-opening starts ended due to a spring-long battle with a sore shoulder.This year, however, Kershaw appeared as healthy as he had been in years during the aborted spring training in February and March, avoiding the back problems that had been an annual issue for him from 2016 through 2018. He arrived at Summer Camp having thrown multiple innings in workouts and was on track to start Thursday night’s opener against the San Francisco Giants.During a workout in the weight room on Tuesday, however, Kershaw began experiencing back stiffness and the Dodgers chose to place him on the IL and start Dustin May against the Giants.last_img read more
