highlights New Delhi: If one had to term this game in two words, ‘see-saw’ would have perfectly summed it up. The game tilted so many times that it was difficult to predict which way the game was moving. This makes one say, that we witnessed a crackerjack of an encounter which went all down to the wire. And one will have to say, in the end, it was India who held their nerves and managed to upstage Australia comprehensively in the end. A stupendous batting display from MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav led India to register a 6-wicket win over the men-in-yellow to go 1-0 up in the five-match ODI series.In the scorching heat at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, the toss fell in favour of Australian skipper Aaron Finch who asked the opposition to have a bowl first. For Australia, Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja started off the innings.And Indian captain Virat Kohli went to his favourite aide Mohammad Shami who used his tall frame to extract extra bounce from the wicket. His discipline helped his counter-part Jasprit Bumrah to send Aaron Finch back to the pavilion.Finch’s wicket led Marcus Stoinis to the crease, who along with Usman Khawaja rebuilt the Australian innings and smashed Indian bowlers all around the ground. The duo went on to register a partnership of 87-runs, which tilted the game in Australia’s favour.However, the Indian bowlers came strong and dented Australia’s middle order. Though Glenn Maxwell played a little cameo of 40-runs the likes of Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav were the star for India with the ball as the troika picked up two apiece to dismantle the Aussie batting lineup. Australia managed to put up a total of 236 runs in their quota of fifty overs, which was exactly 50 runs less than the par total at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium.In reply, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan started off the proceedings for India. However, Dhawan emulated Aaron Finch to walk back to the hut for a duck. Virat came next to the crease, who took nine deliveries to open his account, but once he was in, it was difficult to stop him. Fortunately for Australia, Adam Zampa bowled a quicker one through the air and sent the skipper back.Once Virat was out, suddenly India was under pressure as Rohit Sharma and Ambati Rayudu followed their skipper as scoreboard suddenly looked 99/4 and middle-order was exposed earlier to one can expect.However, what followed was nothing short of sensational as Kedar Jadhav along with India’s chase-master MS Dhoni scripted a beautiful run-chase. The duo registered a partnership of 141 runs, as India go one up in the series.The next game is scheduled to happen on March 5 in Nagpur. This remains to be seen if Australia can come back strongly and give India a fight. Brief Score:AUS: 236/7 in 50 overs (Khawaja 50; Shami 2/44)IND: 240/4 in 48.2 overs (K Jadhav 81; Coulter-Nile 2/46) MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav scripted a beautiful run-chase. The next game is scheduled to happen in Nagpur on March 5. Shami, Bumrah, Kuldeep picked two wickets each.

“The team was involved, I was accused too. It was a tough phase for all of us. Fans felt that the punishment was harsh. Coming back was an emotional moment and I have always said, what doesn’t kill you makes you strong,” says Dhoni in the 45-second trailer of documentary ‘Roar of the Lion’ which will be streamed on Hotstar from March 20. Dhoni had not commented on the turmoil before this. In July 2015, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals were suspended from the cash-rich cricket league for two years for betting activities of their key officials Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra during the 2013 season.Both the officials were banned for life from being involved in any cricket matches conducted by the BCCI. The punishment was handed down by a Supreme Court- appointed three-member committee headed by former CJI R M Lodha, which held that the betting activities of the two officials, Meiyappan and Kundra, then a co-owner of Rajasthan Royals, brought the game of cricket, BCCI, and IPL into disrepute. The 2019 edition of the IPL begins March 23 with Chennai Super Kings hosting Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai. highlights New Delhi : The twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League is all set to begin on March 23 when MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to start off marque T20 tournament. All the franchises are working regressively with the full fortitude to get their ideal playing eleven in place before their first game. With this, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that we are all set to witness another crackerjack of a tournament. Before this, CSK skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni went on to talk about the spot-fixing incident in the documentary released by the franchise. He believes that spot-fixing is even worse than murder. “The biggest crime that I can commit is not a murder, it is actually match-fixing,” he said. Dhoni led the Chennai franchise to its third IPL title in 2018, making it a dream return to the competition after the team served out a two-year ban for its management’s role in the 2013 spot-fixing scandal. MS Dhoni believes spot-fixing is a bigger crime than murder. Indian Premier League is scheduled to start on March 23. CSK will play against RCB in the opener.

As it turned out, in its quest to repeat as Section III Class A champions, the Cicero-North Syracuse field hockey team would have to go through opponents against whom it prevailed three times in the regular season by the same 1-0 margin.Yet the no. 3 seed Northstars could not make it out of Monday’s semifinal at Baldwinsville’s Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium as no. 2 seed Rome Free Academy outlasted them in an epic match not decided until the Black Knights prevailed in a shootout.These same two teams had met just nine days earlier at RFA Stadium. C-NS claimed that 1-0 decision, but it turned out to be a 60-minute dress rehearsal for the far more important playoff rematch. Things had already taken place that afternoon as no. 4 seed Baldwinsville, playing on its home field, knocked off top seed Fayetteville-Manlius in yet another 1-0 match where Emma Brushingham scored in the first half and the Bees’ defense withstood a Hornets second-half barrage that included 11 unsuccessful penalty corners.Nothing of that sort happened between C-NS and RFA. Instead, it lurched back and forth as warm day turned into cool evening, neither side wanting their season to end.The Northstars had most of the good early chances, earning six penalty corners before converting with 12:59 left in the first half when an RFA turnover turned into a shot from the right point that Faith Weaver converted. Tags: C-NSfield hockey A big moment came when Katie Thies, poised to make it 2-0 with six minutes left in the half, was stopped point-blank by Black Knights goalie Lilianna Ferrucci, which wasn’t the last time Ferrucci would make a key stop.RFA did get many of its own chances late in the half, and carry that momentum into the second half, continuing to push until, with 15:45 left, Drew Kopek put it past Ally Wagner to tie the game.And it would stay tied for quite a while, through regulation and then a pair of tense seven-on-seven overtime periods. C-NS had a player advantage to cards for 10 minutes, but could not capitalize, and in the second OT each of the goalies again made game-saving stops.So it all rode on a shoot-out, with each side getting five opportunities to, within 10 seconds, make a 20-yard run at the net and try to beat the other team’s goalie.Three rounds passed, and neither Wagner nor Ferrucci were beaten. Finally, C-NS converted on its fourth shot, only to have RFA answer it to keep things even.The fifth round had Ferrucci force another Northstars attempt wide. Black Knights freshman Alyssa Nardslico slid the ball past the charging Wagner, and RFA had won.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story
Paul Flanagan has been harping on one thing to his team as it prepares for a road test against No. 10 Ohio State this weekend. The SU ice hockey head coach wants to see the Orange compete consistently for an entire game. Flanagan felt his team didn’t compete every second last weekend against Union. That was clear during the first period of Friday’s game, in which SU only outshot its opponent 5-4. The second period was much different as the Orange built an 18-1 shot advantage. Syracuse (4-2-1) went on to win both games on the weekend, which saw the freshmen class gain valuable experience. The young team learned it must compete at a high level from the time the first puck drops to the final horn. There is no time to breathe easy at the Division I level. ‘We can’t just turn a light switch. You can’t turn it on and off,’ Flanagan said. ‘That’s what we’ve been kind of doing.’ The Orange could get away with the letdowns against a struggling Union team. But if SU isn’t ready this weekend against a Top 10 opponent in the Buckeyes, the outcome will be different.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Senior captain Stefanie Marty knows the team has to play at a higher level to compete with Ohio State (4-2-0). ‘Union, we knew if we just play our game we will win,’ she said. ‘If we make a lot of mistakes, (Ohio State) will beat us. We really have to be ready.’ Marty would rather be playing against the best teams in the country. She said the team likes playing the underdog role. ‘I think in general, the team and I like that more, we don’t have anything to lose,’ Marty said. ‘We can just go after them.’ If SU pulls off the upset this weekend, it could go from underdog to ranked. The team received one vote in the latest USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Women’s College Hockey Poll. The momentum from last weekend earned the team some recognition. But for the Orange, the road to becoming an elite program starts this weekend. ‘I think we can be in the Top 10, and these games are what we have to win to be up there,’ Marty said. Junior forward Lisa Mullan said the team is pumped up to prove itself against another top program. ‘It’s our first really long or far-away road trip, so they’re going to be a pretty tough team, she said. ‘It’s going to be a battle.’ Flanagan expects a hard-fought game with OSU in the first ever meeting between the programs. His St. Lawrence teams played OSU four times earlier in the decade. Flanagan was also an assistant coach for the U.S. Women’s National team under OSU head coach Jackie Barto, so he knows this weekend’s opponent is tough. OSU jumped out to an undefeated record before dropping its last two to current No. 1 Wisconsin last weekend. He said the Buckeyes have a powerful front-line that can score goals in bunches. Like SU, the Buckeyes start a freshman goalie (Lisa Steffes), and Flanagan wants to exploit that inexperience with an aggressive approach on offense. In order to generate those chances, the team will have to compete for 60 minutes. The head coach just wants to see consistency in his team’s effort. He said if his team can do that and his goalie makes plays, SU can keep it close. And in a close game, anything can happen. With a strong effort, the Orange would move another step closer to the Top 10. For now, Flanagan just wants to see progress. He hasn’t started dreaming about the national rankings just yet. ‘We’re not putting a lot of pressure on this group — ‘You got to win’ or the end-all be-all of everything,’ Flanagan said. ‘We want to win, but I think before that we just need to compete.’ firstname.lastname@example.org Published on October 27, 2010 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: email@example.com Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
On Saturday night, the sports world watched as Floyd Mayweather beat Conor McGregor in one of the most highly anticipated boxing matches in history, one that is expected to shatter pay-per-view records. We marveled at how McGregor, an MMA fighter making his pro boxing debut, hung tough against one of the all-time greats, and we oohed and aahed in the middle rounds as Mayweather landed punch after punch on a finally fatigued McGregor, forcing the referee to call the fight in the 10th round.I’ll bet you this: Not once during the fight did it cross your mind that Mayweather has a criminal history. He was cited at least seven times for assault against five women — according to Deadspin — pleading guilty twice to domestic violence and serving 60 days in prison in 2012.It didn’t cross my mind. As my friends and I gathered around my phone watching the fight, I was just glad that Periscope streamers were saving me the $100 in pay-per-view costs and that I was witnessing a momentous sporting occasion. To me, the competition and significance of the match was enough to overlook — no, straight-up ignore — Mayweather’s checkered past. By no means was this an endorsement of Mayweather. I despise the man, but not enough to turn away from the spectacle.All of this leads to an essential question when it comes to sports: Where is the line that professional athletes must cross before they are shunned entirely from their sport, before society deems their actions intolerable and their peers cast them aside as pariahs?Domestic violence seems to be forgivable; we’ve overlooked athlete after athlete across various sports. The NFL let Michael Vick back in the league after he participated in dogfighting, and it gave Leonard Little a second chance after he killed a woman in a drunk-driving incident. Mike Tyson — a convicted rapist — was allowed back in the ring and his first fight back in 1995 broke pay-per-view records at the time and then we loved him when he made a cameo in The Hangover.Clearly, we are willing to overlook at a lot of things if the entertainment payoff is worth it. Outside of the ring, Tyson is a convicted criminal; inside it, he was a dominant boxer. On the football field, Vick didn’t have the “dogfighting” stigma attached to his jersey; he was simply just another quarterback.To some, money and success trump morality and ethics. Tyson filled plenty of pockets with every fight he took on — period. Vick was a skilled quarterback and helped teams win football games — period. If they both also happened to be bad human beings, so be it. And there’s always the argument of giving people a second chance.But if we are to forgive the Mayweathers and Tysons and Vicks of the world, then we need to take a long, hard look at one current football player and ask why we aren’t treating him the same. It is weeks before the NFL season kicks off, and Colin Kaepernick is still unemployed.Kaepernick, as is widely known by now, caused an uproar last season when he knelt during the national anthem before games in a sign of protest for civil rights and against police brutality. He created a divisive firestorm: Some of his peers knelt with him in solidarity, while others called him out for being unpatriotic for disrespecting his country’s flag.It’s fine to disagree on his actions. It’s not fine, however, to use his actions as a reason to blackball him from the league, which is what the 32 NFL owners have been doing all offseason, whether they admit it or not.Let’s set aside the argument that Kaepernick doesn’t have a job because he’s not good enough. He isn’t Tom Brady, but Kaepernick is far and away a better quarterback than Austin Davis, Blaine Gabbert, Thad Lewis and David Fales — just four of the many free agent passers who have landed jobs this offseason. Remember: Kaepernick is still 29, just a season removed from starting for the San Francisco 49ers, four years removed from leading his team to the NFC Championship Game and five years removed from being one play shy of winning a Super Bowl for the 49ers. And you’re telling me you’d rather have NFL journeymen like Thad Lewis on your team?Point is: Kaepernick doesn’t have a job because owners don’t feel comfortable with the backlash and distraction that would come with signing him. They fear that fans would stop showing up, afraid that by signing Kaepernick, they would alienate the very people they need to fill their stadium and keep the cash flowing.The issue here is that Kaepernick has injected politics into sports in a very forceful and public manner, and I don’t think society is quite ready for that yet. Michael Jordan, who famously avoided controversial statements during his playing days, reportedly once said, “Republicans buy sneakers, too.” Giving an athlete with a criminal record a second chance is, in most cases, a black-and-white issue. Prison time isn’t political. But Kaepernick’s quandary is more nuanced. Sure, some sports fans think that athletes should use their platform to advocate for what they believe in, but there are many others who don’t, especially if they don’t agree with Kaepernick’s position.It’s an unfortunate situation — embarrassing, even. Vick encouraged animal cruelty and the NFL welcomed him back. In more recent examples, Adrian Peterson pled guilty to charges of child abuse after beating his 4-year-old son with a tree branch and is still in the league. Joe Mixon was drafted in the second round this year despite assaulting a woman in a bar in college, an incident that was caught on camera.Yet, Kaepernick, who simply exercised his First Amendment rights — breaking zero laws or NFL rules in the process — has been shunned from his sport, blackballed and cast aside. It’s clear that we haven’t reached the point where we can truly accept athletes for who they are as people, not just pawns who run around throwing and catching footballs.Until then, by cheering for women beaters such as Floyd Mayweather but castigating Colin Kaepernick, we are nothing but hypocrites. And that’s a shame. Eric He is a junior studying journalism. He is also the associate managing editor of the Daily Trojan. His column, “Grinding Gears,” runs Mondays.

StumbleUpon ESI Digital – No Drama Please… Esports growth should be treated as business as usual August 20, 2020 Share Submit International betting and gaming operator 1xBet has signed a title partnership deal with Ukraine-based esports team NAVI for 2020.1xBet has confirmed that it will support NAVI in various esports disciplines across the year through a number of “powerful marketing activities”. It will also serve as the title sponsor on the NAVI website and for all of the team’s merchandise.Having started out in 2009 as a CS:GO team called Natus Vincere, taken from the Latin for ‘born to win’, the team has gone on to become a leading multi-game esports organisation.The abbreviation NAVI was initially borrowed from the film Avatar, before being officially revealed after a competition between the team’s fans to decide a new name.A representative for 1xBet said: “1xBet has been focusing on supporting esports for many years, which is one of the fastest growing betting industries. Competitions in various disciplines daily attract the attention of hundreds of thousands of fans from around the world.“We really like this dynamic field of interest and 1xBet was attracted by the idea of cooperation with an esports organization known throughout the world. “The full name of the team Natus Vincere means ‘born to win’. This perfectly describes our audience – players who bet on esports and other sports with 1xBet every day.”To demonstrate the importance of esports to the 1xBet business, we learned early last year that the number of users betting on esports had increased by almost 350% in 2018 when compared with the corresponding period of 2017. The operator’s esports section has since enjoyed another 200% boost in 2019 against the 12-month period for 2018.
