McAuley: No egos in Baggies squad

first_img He went on: “You always hear how players miss the dressing room when they retire. We’ve a good dressing room at the moment. It works both ways, I said there was no egos when I came here. Everyone wants the same things, we play to win. “Do the headlines affect the dressing room? Once you’re on the pitch, you’re focused, things in the background don’t come into your mind. You’re too busy focusing on the game and what’s going on in front of you.” McAuley was not allowed to comment on Odemwingie’s behaviour but revealed that Macedonian international Popov had apologised for his actions. He said: “Goran has said sorry for his actions, we draw a line under it and he’ll serve his time on the sidelines. “Liam Ridgewell will come into the side now and make it hard for him to get back in “Was it cultural? I’m not sure. It was out of character. He’s actually a nice guy. “You can put it down to a head loss. It’s something he wishes he hadn’t done. It was one of things you can’t believe. I’d have reacted differently. But he knew he was in the wrong after the game. He held his hands up.” Press Association Defender Gareth McAuley insists the strong nature of the West Brom dressing room will ensure the club bounces back from the current series of unsavoury incidents surrounding key players.center_img Peter Odemwingie has been fined for his series of Twitter attacks on the club and turning up at Loftus Road without permission on transfer deadline day, only to see his proposed move to QPR collapse, while left-back Goran Popov was also disciplined for spitting in the direction of Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker. But McAuley is adamant the players will police themselves, and said: “Everyone keeps everyone in check. When players are low you pick them up. When they’re getting carried away you bring them back down to earth. That’s how dressing rooms always have been.” last_img read more

Cricket News Umesh Yadav’s death overs bowling horror revisited after loss to Australia

first_imghighlights Australia won a Twenty20 International against India in India for the second time.Umesh Yadav bowled the final over against West Indies in Vizag which ended in a tie.Australia were boosted by a fifty from Glenn Maxwell. It was deja-vu for Umesh. At this same venue, four months ago during the ODI clash against West Indies, the Vidarbha right-hander was once again found wanting in the death overs. Virat Kohli became the fastest to 10,000 runs in ODIs and his 157, combined with Ambati Rayudu’s 73 helped India reach 321/7. In response, Shimron Hetmyer blasted 94 and was well supported by Shai Hope as West Indies seemed on course for a win. A flurry of late wickets resulted in the Windies needing 14 runs off the final over bowled by Umesh.A first ball yorker was dug out by Hope for a single but on the second ball, a reverse-swinging delivery hit the back leg of Ashley Nurse and went past MS Dhoni for four leg byes. The third ball was slogged to deep midwicket for a couple by Nurse and West Indies needed seven off three balls. However, Nurse played the scoop shot and holed out to third man and Hope managed to squeeze a yorker to deep midwicket for two runs. Windies needed five runs off the last ball but Umesh bowled a full ball slightly wide of off stump and Hope carved the square drive to the deep backward point fence for a boundary to tie the game. Umesh ended up as the most expensive Indian bowler in that match, conceding 78 runs for one wicket.Vizag is a venue where MS Dhoni made a mark on the world stage with a brilliant 148 against Pakistan in 2005. It was the venue that saw Kohli script an epic to upstage Sachin Tendulkar. But for Umesh, Vizag is the venue of horror for his death bowling.  New Delhi: Umesh Yadav, death overs bowling and Vizag. It is a horror story that is the stuff of nightmares. The first Twenty20 International between India and Australia saw fortunes swaying constantly. KL Rahul hit a fifty but India managed just 126/7. Australia were boosted by Glenn Maxwell’s brilliant 56 but once he fell, India found the opening and Jasprit Bumrah bowled a sensational 19th over where he conceded just two runs and took two wickets. Australia required 14 off the last over which was to be bowled by Umesh Yadav. The advantage was with India and in the first ball, Pat Cummins mistimed a slog to long on and Australia needed 13 off five balls. Then it went horribly wrong.Jhye Richardson moved to the off side and Umesh bowled a short delivery outside off which the batsman thumped to deep midwicket for a boundary. Nine runs needed off four balls. A brilliant yorker was bowled but Richardson dug it out superbly and ran two runs. A low full toss was hit down the ground for a single and six runs were needed off two balls. Umesh bowled a low full toss and wide outside off stump, Pat Cummins latched on to it and creamed the drive to the deep extra cover fence.Before the final ball was bowled, former India skipper Sunil Gavaskar pointed out that long on was a bit too deep and the fielder should move in. Umesh bowled a full ball on middle stump and Cummins mistimed the drive past the bowler. However, since there was no timing, the ball did not go quickly to the fielder who ran in and flung the ball at Dhoni’s end. This was enough for Australia to steal the game and win by three wickets off the final ball. Umesh could not defend 14 runs in the final over.

COVID-19 puts CWI finances in ICU

first_img(CMC) – The financial health of Cricket West Indies (CWI) has been described by its president Ricky Skerritt as being in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic which has prevented competition in the sport.“This crisis has put our already poor financial state into ICU. It is like going to the doctor with an illness, and as he is about to prescribe the medication you get a stroke,” he said in an interview with Guardian Media Sports.Skerritt said there would have to be some cost-cutting, and a committee, set up after a 63-page financial review report by accounting and financial management consulting firm PKF was presented to the board last December, would be making recommendations on how to come out of the crisis and thrive financially. The PKF report made 26 recommendations.“What this committee will do is to look at that and also look at the emergency situation that this COVID-19 pandemic has thrown us into and recommend what can be done,” the CWI boss said.“This committee may expect to be looking to not massage on the body but make deep surgical incisions as far as the cutting back process goes. What we have been doing all the while is cost-saving but I think the time has come for cost-cutting.“We have about 100 cricketers on retainers and the board has had to fund this professional league. This has come at great expense to us and all these things will be looked at,” he added.Skerrit said the committee is expected to present its report in time for the board’s next quarterly meeting on May 27, “where all we will be dealing with is finances”.The committee is tasked with assessing the related financial implications for future international tours, regional tournaments and High Performance camps with regard to revenue, operating expenses, cash flow and re-scheduling or cancellation of events.It will also review the current CWI cost structure and make recommendations on new areas for potential cost-reduction in addition to making recommendations generally on how CWI will need to operate to continue its core business, specifically given the changing but uncertain economic environment.COVID-19 has forced the cancellation and postponement of sporting activities across the globe.Several of CWI’s revenue-generating events have been affected. South Africa’s five-match T20I and two-Test tour and the New Zealand tour of the West Indies, both due to start in July, are in jeopardy.last_img read more

McCullough, Syracuse reflect on season-ending torn ACL, look to others to excel in forward’s absence

first_imgBefore Syracuse’s 70-57 win against Florida State on Sunday night, Chris McCullough played as the Houston Rockets in the NBA 2K basketball video game against walk-on Doyin Akintobi-Adeyeye. McCullough won by 30.Eight minutes and nine seconds into SU’s game, it was Akintobi-Adeyeye with more power than McCullough, stepping under the freshman forward’s left arm to shoulder his weight. McCullough had just torn his right ACL after jumping to catch a Michael Gbinije outlet pass, but the severity of the injury was unknown at the time.“Just to keep my hopes up and keep me happy he made me laugh, he said ‘Remember that 30-piece,’” McCullough said of Akintobi-Adeyeye at Monday’s practice in the Carrier Dome.His Orange teammates were getting ready for their 8 p.m. Tuesday tipoff against Wake Forest – the first of 15 more regular-season matchups SU will play without the 6-foot-10 freshman forward. McCullough said he’s staying positive and will still be himself, dancing and joking in the locker room. He and his teammates said the rest of the team will have to step up in his absence.McCullough will not be able to gain a medical redshirt as he would’ve had to play in 30 percent or fewer of his team’s regular-season games. He’s played in 16 contests — 51.6 percent of the 31 SU will play this season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter limping into the locker room during the first half, McCullough said he walked around for five minutes, then iced the knee. He knew he was done for the game and had a serious injury, but couldn’t walk when he got up after he finished icing his knee.He watched the rest of the game by himself in the locker room, where he took a call from his mother but told her there was a game going on and that he’d call her back.“My mom, she talk for too long,” McCullough said. “I told her I’d call her back after the game or something.”After the game he went to his South Campus apartment where teammates visited him. He took some medicine, went to bed and put a pillow under his leg, which he said he couldn’t keep straight.On Monday morning he got an MRI, and two hours later, team trainer Brad Pike told him he had torn his ACL. Head coach Jim Boeheim said it’s a 6-8 month process of getting McCullough back for next season.“It’s a terrible injury and it’s just unfortunate,” Boeheim said before Monday’s practice. “It’s a freak accident. You just have to get it taken care of and do his rehab and come back. We’ve had two guys have terrible ACLs, Andy Rautins and Eric Devendorf and they’re both still playing today, stronger than ever.”Earlier in the day on the Atlantic Coast Conference coaches’ teleconference Boeheim said that sophomore forward B.J. Johnson could play in either forward spot off the bench, Chinonso Obokoh would be SU’s backup center and Tyler Roberson would start in McCullough’s place.Roberson is averaging 23.2 minutes per game compared to McCullough’s 28.1, but has recently rotated in for, or alongside McCullough at the power forward spot.He said he’s learned his role at the No. 4 spot better as the season has progressed, increasingly moving out of the small forward position he played more earlier in the season.“I think I’m ready for it,” Roberson said of increased minutes. “It’s not something that I think would be asked of me that’s too much. I think I can do it.”McCullough said his surgery has not been scheduled yet as he waits for the swelling in his knee to go down. He said the whole team, not any individuals in particular, will have to step up without him and insisted that he’d still be himself around the team even though his pain is currently a “10 out of 10.”“I’m still going to be funny in the locker room, still going to be me, just going to be looking around now, can’t get my boogie on no more,” McCullough said, wiggling his hips. “Can’t do my tootsie roll.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 12, 2015 at 5:33 pm Contact Jacob: jmklinge@syr.edu | @Jacob_Klinger_last_img read more

Florida To Start Reopening on May 4; Three Counties Excluded

first_imgFlorida’s Governor Ron DeSantis has outlined his plans for reopening of the state which will begin on Monday, May 4. DeSantis said that the reopening of the state will be in three phases, but for phase one, Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, which have been hardest hit by the coronavirus, are not include. Bars, gyms, hair salons and movie theaters will remain closed until the next phase of reopening. Visits to nursing homes are also still prohibited. Beginning May 4, Florida restaurants and retail stores can reopen at 25% of their capacity. Restaurants can use outdoor seating if the tables are six-feet apart. “Dade, Broward and Palm Beach are very important to Florida’s future,” DeSantis said. “We want to get them going. I think we have a good path to do it. But it’s going to be on a little bit different timetable than the rest of the state.” People are still being advised to follow the CDC social distancing guidelines when out in public. Wearing a mask is also still standard but residents won’t be fined for not wearing them. As some counties in Florida have already reopened recreational venues with strict guidelines, DeSantis, on Wednesday, announced the first phase of reopening for the entire state. The three counties, which comprise South Florida, have been responsible for 60% of the state’s COVID-19 cases. DeSantis said that the three states are still trending upwards, in terms of positive cases and deaths, and thus they cannot be included in the phase one reopening. The recommendations were made by the specially appointed task force, who also received input from Florida’s residents. As of Wednesday night, the state had surpassed 33,000 cases of coronavirus.last_img read more

2013 Cowbell Tour (Stage 11): Prosper Agbo dethrones Tetteh-Djanmah

first_imgProsper Agbo ended the two year reign of Henry Tetteh- Djanmah to become the 2013 Cowbell National Cycling Champion.Agbo kept his cool throughout the final day of the tour (24km criterium within suburbs of the capital) by meticulously riding behind his team leader, Francis Tetteh, during a ferocious pace closed circuit race in Accra.“I don’t even know what to say, but thank God; this is the happiest day of my life” said Prosper Agbo, whilst wiping his tears of joy.Immediately the whistle of the Race Commissiare triggered the riders into action, team Die Hard decided to dictate the pace of the race, by attacking, but All Stars riders led by Emmanuel Sackey and the 17 year old sensation, Frank Awuku Akuffo, responded in equal measure with a swift attack.Team Die Hard fought as wounded lions to help their lead rider, Tetteh Djanmah to retain his title with a series of attacks initiated by, Nuru Paddy, Moro Egala and their youngest rider Abdul Razak Umar, who was seeking to win the White Jersey (Best Young Rider).All stars did not budge; they rather took the fight to their opponent. When they succeeded by countering the attacks, they then initiated their own attack.Francis Tetteh and Prosper stayed safe in the peloton. Occasionally Francis had to escape the peloton to counter some of the attacks from other teams such as Young Stars.Samuel Anim, winner of the Green and Red jerseys throughout the competition, proved it was not a fluke.He refused to be drawn into needless attacks, and came out only when necessary, to do what he does best: win ‘Point Chauds’, to keep a firm grip on his Green Jersey.This situation of attacks and counter attacks increased the tempo of the race and eventually kept the bunch together, when the riders realized that it will go down to the wire. 100m to the end of the last lap, the cheering supporters at the Accra International Trade Fair Centre, were treated to an inevitable field Sprint.Henry Tetteh Djanmah, knowing his reign had ended, because he could not sustain a breakaway throughout, wanted to at least win a stage victory, which eluded him throughout the tour.He was first to kick out of the bunch with his teammates Moro, and Nuru.The determination, pace, strength and power of Samuel Anim carried him to take the chequered flag, winning his 6th stage victory in the Process.last_img read more
