ICC World Cup England survive Rohit Sharma ton, beat India to keep World Cup 2019 semis hope alive

first_imgEngland won against India after 27 years in World Cups.India is one win away from reaching the playoffs.England takes on New Zealand in their last game. New Delhi: Rohit Sharma blasted his 25th century and had shared a brilliant 138-run stand with Virat Kohli. The Indian cricket team skipper is considered the ultimate chase master as the team looked to achieve the highest run-chase in World Cup history. Kohli had created a record by smashing his fifth consecutive fifty. However, Liam Plunkett managed to get Kohli driving loosely to backward point as the skipper fell for 66. The 138-run stand had consumed 155 balls and India were playing catch-up in response to England’s massive score. Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya kept the fight alive but once Plunkett took both of them, India’s chase ended in a whimper and they lost by 31 runs. For England, the win kept their hopes of reaching the semi-final alive and this was their first win against India since the 1992 World Cup clash in Perth.Chasing 338, India had started disastrously when KL Rahul fell for 0 to Chris Woakes. England’s bowlers bowled in the right areas and did not give the Indian players easy runs. Rohit survived a dropped chance on 4 by Joe Root off Jofra Archer and the batsman capitalised with a boundary. Kohli looked in good touch with two boundaries off Archer but England ensured they never got going. Rohit and Kohli looked to break the shackles but the asking rate mounted.Both batsmen went past fifties and they opened up. Rohit smashed three consecutive boundaries off Ben Stokes while Kohli found the boundaries consistently. However, once Plunkett got Kohli, all hopes hinged on Rohit and the middle order. The Mumbai batsman closed in on his landmark with two boundaries off Mark Wood. Rishabh Pant, playing in his first game, looked nervous as the asking rate mounted.Rohit reached his 25th century and third in this tournament but Woakes dealt the killer blow when Rohit miscued a slow off-cutter to Jos Buttler. Hardik Pandya held the key and he immediately looked to keep India in the game and he blasted three boundaries off Woakes in the 39th over. However, Plunkett continued to dent India and England were rewarded when Pant miscued a hoick to long leg only for Woakes to dive to his left and take a brilliant catch near the boundary. Pandya kept the fight going but in Plunkett’s final over, the all-rounder miscued the lofted shot and was caught at long on.The chase fizzled out after that and India tamely lost the game with MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav unable to score freely in the death overs. The win for England will give them massive relief after the game was brilliantly set by Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy after England chose to bat.Bairstow and Roy, playing his first game after suffering a hamstring injury, galvanised the top order brilliantly as they began aggressively. The powerplay yielded 47 runs as the platform was built for an onslaught. Roy blasted Hardik Pandya for a boundary and a six and that opened the floodgates. Both batsmen found the boundary every over with India’s spinners coming under pressure.Bairstow reached his fifty with two sixes off Yuzvendra Chahal while Roy also notched up his fifty. The 160-run stand was broken when Roy mistimed the lofted shot off Kuldeep only for Ravindra Jadeja, the substitute for KL Rahul who injured himself to take a splendid catch. Bairstow continued on his merry ways and notched up his maiden World Cup century.However, India’s bowlers varied the pace in the middle overs and managed to restrict England. The hosts looked like scoring in excess of 350 but in the middle period, they managed just 65 runs in 14 overs, with Mohammed Shami wreaking havoc again. Ben Stokes, though, had other ideas and he flayed the bowling to all parts of the ground and he was given good support by Jos Buttler. Stokes notched up his fifty and although Shami took his maiden five-wicket haul, the exploits of Bairstow and Roy has ensured England fight another day in the race for the semi-finals.

Tyson’s Marijuana Company Wants Barca’s Camp Nou Naming Rights

first_imgMike Tyson However heavyweight champion Tyson is hoping he can fight off the competition and raise the profile of his company, SwissX, which sells a range of CBD and cannabis-based products.“It’s a great stadium,” Tyson’s business partner Alki David told BBC Sport: “It’s something we’ve specifically been looking for to adopt in our company and it seemed like an amazing idea.“My company is a cannabis company and Spain has a long tradition within the European Union as being a leader or a liberal in the road towards legalisation, so it’s evolved quite naturally.”Asked if a deal with Tyson’s company could harm Barcelona’s reputation, David said: “That remains to be seen. The world is born on ideas.”David, a billionaire who is involved with several companies, says he is already in talks with the Catalan giants and is optimistic about his chances of securing a deal.“This is an opportunity that I am bullish about. It is an historic moment in the history of sport and it fits well with my current plans,” he said earlier this week. “Contact was opened at the start of the week and I am quietly confident the deal will be secured.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Mike Tyson’s cannabis company hopes to secure the naming rights to Barcelona’s Camp Nou stadium, the former boxing champion’s business partner announced yesterday.Barcelona announced at the weekend that they will sell the naming rights to Camp Nou for the 2020-21 campaign and donate the proceeds to help in the fight against coronavirus.Many big companies are expected to line up with a bid to have their name associated with the iconic stadium and prestigious club.last_img read more

Men’s Soccer: Golden Eagles soar past Badgers

first_imgThe McClimon curse continued on Wednesday night as the Wisconsin men’s soccer team lost a late stunner to Marquette and moved to 0-6 at home in front of the large home crowd of 803.Coming into the game, the Badgers (2-8-1) had just grabbed an impressive tie against Big Ten opponent Michigan and returned to Madison to try and snag their first home victory of the season against Marquette (4-4-2). The loss gives the team only three more opportunities to win at home this season.The first half was a toss up between the two teams with relatively few real opportunities presenting themselves even though the teams recorded a combined 20 shots.The best opportunity for a goal in the half and probably the game for the Badgers came in the 37th minute off a routine shot by Tom Barlow that careened off the post. The half as a whole seemed to be controlled by the Golden Eagles, but the lack of a score left much of the game up to the second.Despite the final score, the Badgers dominated the second half. The young team controlled the tempo and possession for much of the half and it looked that if anyone would score in the match, it would be Wisconsin.The two teams remained knotted at 0-0 for much of the period until a tap in from Marquette forward Kelmend Islami off a long cross in the 77th minute secured the victory for the rival Eagles. The Badgers would have one more attempt from defenseman Sam Brotherton that beat the keeper but was only able to find the post, adding more pain to another loss.“I complement Marquette by making the play to win, but there were too many mistakes by us,” head coach John Trask said. “Guys have to take accountability at this point. It’s not about growing up, guys need to harden up.”Trask also said that while an in-state rival is always an important game to play at home, the team is jockeying for position in the Big Ten right now and the improvements in the defense are promising.The Badgers defense had their hands full with one of the nation’s best forwards in Nortey and Trask says that he was confident in their ability to shut him down.“You can’t sugar coat it any more with these guys,” Trask said. “You have to have to be a little more poignant and we are moving in that direction. I always count on these guys to bounce back and I think they will.”Wisconsin will next host Big Ten opponent Michigan State at McClimon Complex Saturday at 7 p.m.last_img read more

All sporting events without fans until further notice, SU Athletics says

first_imgThe Daily Orange is a nonprofit newsroom that receives no funding from Syracuse University. Consider donating today to support our mission.Even as Syracuse enters the week where three of its five fall Olympic sports begin competitions, all of its stadiums and other home facilities will remain empty. There will be no fans at SU games until further notice, including Syracuse football’s six scheduled home games this season and the opener in the newly renovated Carrier Dome, Syracuse Athletics said in a press release on Friday.The decision, which could change for games later in the season, was made in compliance with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s COVID-19 protocol regarding fans in stadiums. Those guidelines also prohibit in-person attendance at professional sporting events in New York, which notably impacts the Buffalo Bills, New York Yankees and New York Mets. If the protocols do change, Syracuse fans will have the opportunity to attend games by purchasing online pre-sale tickets two weeks before game day, the release said. Fans will also be required to wear masks and practice social distancing.“Syracuse Athletics remains committed to doing everything it can to support and protect the health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes, our staff and the campus and Syracuse communities,” the release said. “All decisions will be science-based and informed by public health guidance as provided by county, state and public health officials.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textCuomo said on a July 21 conference call with reporters that there wouldn’t be any fans at sporting events this season. Two days later, though, Rich Azzopardi, a senior advisor to Cuomo, clarified that the decision would be revisited closer to the season in early September based on “the infection rate and where the world is.” “Right now, we’re still fanless sports activities,” State Budget Director Robert Mujica said on the conference call with Cuomo and reporters. “So that would be a large social gathering with everyone together in a stadium and that is not authorized as of yet.” Facebook Twitter Google+ Subscribe to the D.O.

He also said that Syracuse and the Atlantic Coast Conference were working on various models to potentially accommodate different levels of attendance. But Friday’s release confirms Cuomo’s initial decision. The Orange played in an almost-empty stadium in their season-opening 31-6 loss to No. 18  North Carolina in Chapel Hill, and will play without fans at Pittsburgh. While they could potentially play in front of a crowd — between 20% and 30% capacity — at Clemson, Louisville and Notre Dame, all games in the 49,057-seat Carrier Dome will remain empty.Syracuse has three consecutive home games for football, beginning with its home-opener against Georgia Tech on Sept. 26 and followed by Duke and Liberty. The Orange also have home games this weekend for field hockey, with a pair against Duke on Friday and Sunday at J.S. Coyne Stadium. Volleyball, which plays its home games in the Women’s Building, opens its home schedule against Pittsburgh the following week, on Sept. 25 and 26.last_img read more
