Cricket News Rahkeem Cornwall Makes ‘Gigantic’ Impression On Debut In Jamaica Test Vs India

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Even before he stepped out on to the field at Sabina Park, Rahkeem Cornwall had already made big strides. Weighing at 140 kg and standing six foot five inches tall, Cornwall is indeed the Big Show of world cricket. Cornwall became the heaviest Test cricketer after he made his debut at Sabina Park and in his third over, he got the massive wicket of Cheteshwar Pujara for 6. The offspinner had a good time on day 1, bowling 27 overs and conceding just 69 runs as India reached 264/5 at stumps thanks to fifties from Virat Kohli and Mayank Agarwal. In addition, Cornwall also took two catches.Speaking after the end of the day’s play, Cornwall said it was a great feeling to take the wicket of Pujara. “Good feeling to get him as my first Test wicket. It was nothing really new to me but it was a good feeling. It was a good feeling of making my debut. I think the ball comes on really nice in the start. I have to work hard and put the ball into right areas,” Cornwall said. In addition to Cornwall, Jason Holder was the best bowler on the day taking 3/39 in 20 overs. Cornwall added that he was clear what he had to do in order to restrict India. “Our seamers bowled well and when I was asked to bowl, I have to do the same. It was a good feeling to get my first Test wicket. We thought the pitch had a lot of moisture so we thought once we get the first chance to bowl, we can get the early wickets. The toss went in our favour. It was a good day on the first day of Test cricket,” Cornwall said. Also Read | Who is Rahkeem Cornwall – The six foot five, 140 kgs giant of Windies Test team?Mayank Agarwal, who scored 55 and shared a partnership of 68 with Virat Kohli to revive India, also praised Cornwall’s accuracy. “Rahkeem is very, very (consistent), he forms good clusters and he keeps bowling those areas, keeps bowling those areas. I thought it wasn’t very easy to score off him. We took our time and it was very important for Virat and me to actually get a partnership going and it was important that one of us went on to score big. He definitely gets a lot more bounce compared to many other spinners. He just keeps hitting those lengths,” Agarwal said.  highlightscenter_img Rahkeem Cornwall removed Cheteshwar Pujara in his third over.Cornwall also took two catches.Virat Kohli and Mayank Agarwal hit fifties.last_img read more

Last-gasp Sterling Goal Restores City’s Eight-point Lead

first_imgPREMIERSHIPRaheem Sterling’s 96th-minute winner sank Southampton to give Manchester City a club-record 12th-successive Premier League victory last night. The win also restores the Citizens eight-point lead at the top of the table.Sterling had scored decisive late goals in City’s previous two wins, over Feyenoord and Huddersfield, but his third strike of the week was his most dramatic of the lot, and sparked wild celebrations from City boss Pep Guardiola and his bench.City had taken the lead at the start of the second half when Saints defender Virgil van Dijk got the final touch on Kevin de Bruyne’s free-kick. But it appeared Saints got their reward for a determined display when Romeu swept home Sofiane Boufal’s pull-back with 15 minutes remaining.Sterling, who has now scored 13 goals this season, had other ideas.He had already seen a goal disallowed for a foul on Saints keeper Fraser Forster moments earlier, but was not to be denied – cutting in from the left, exchanging passes with De Bruyne and bending the ball past Fraser Forster.Guardiola’s side had already made the most successful start in Premier League history, with 37 points from their first 13 games.This win saw them become the first side to reach 40 points from 14 games, and maintains the advantage of eight points over Manchester United that they had at the start of the weekShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

CalPIRG holds panel to discuss health care reform

first_imgOn the first day that the new Affordable Care Act goes into effect, California’s Public Interest Research Group held a panel discussion to importance of the bill and what it means for young adults.“What we’re celebrating today is really just the first step toward creating a system that actually functions,” said USC medical student Joshua Lilienstein.Lilienstein was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2006, while in medical school. He said his saga of trials and tribulations made him aware that the network of hospitals, pharmacies and doctors wasn’t cohesive.“I myself was responsible for making sure nothing fell through the crack,” Lilienstein said about his experience as a patient. “This is an incredibly leaky system.”The U.S. Public Interest Research Group and non-profit organization Families USA released The Young Person’s Guide to Health Insurance, a pamphlet that explains health care rights and options available under the new law.Events on 35 college campuses across the country, including USC, were held to distribute the material.“During the six months since the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was passed, there has been great confusion about the provisions and their implications,” said a press release by Health Insurance Sort, an independent health insurance comparison agency.Mike Russo, a health care policy expert and CalPIRG Health Care Reform advocate, commended the law because he said believes young people are the hardest hit by this crisis.“The provisions that go into effect today are the first of many that will help California’s families and young people rest a bit easier about their health care,” Russo said.Some aspects of the new law include: bans against the denial of pre-existing conditions and charging more for a woman than a man for coverage. A student can also now stay on his parents’ plan until the age of 26.Assemblyman Mike Davis, of the 48th District which includes USC, said he is proud we have made health care as equally important as education.“Today is probably one of the most significant days that the United States of America has experienced in decades in terms of public policy,” he said. “I stand here today proud that our country is saying health care is important.”Even Lilienstein acknowledged that insurance companies are not all malicious.“From the provider point of view, there is a huge well of good will to want to make the system better,” he said. “But it will be very difficult for us to pull together a cohesive statewide plan.”Dr. Michael Cousineau, an expert in health care policy, said he was surprised that more people didn’t know the details of the law.“it’s important for young people to get information out there,” Cousineau said. “I’m surprised to find out how many young people didn’t know about health care.”last_img read more

Extra-time again unkind to Badgers

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin men’s soccer team has struggled to win games so far this season and Saturday it suffered another extra-time defeat, this time a 2-1 loss to Michigan.The game ended when the Wolverines’ Rylee Woods scored in the 99th minute off a free kick from 30 yards out to hand Wisconsin (1-7-1 overall, 0-3-0 Big Ten) another tough loss. His shot curled around the wall and through traffic, which made it difficult for freshman goalkeeper Adrian Remeniuk to make a play.Remeniuk had taken the place of the injured Casey Beyers, who had made four starts in a row before sustaining his injury.Both teams remained scoreless until the 80th minute when senior Jacob Brindle scored off a cross to put the Badgers ahead for the time being.However, Michigan (2-5-2, 1-1-2) scored the equalizer just three minutes later when James Murphy stole the ball from the Badgers and bounced his shot off the post and behind Remeniuk for the goal.In the final six minutes of regulation, Wisconsin had several opportunities to score, but could not find the back of the net.“As soon as it went 1-1, we started creating chances again and could have easily won it in the last five or six minutes of the game once they tied it,” Wisconsin head coach John Trask said. “I thought our response to their goal was good, but soccer can be a cruel game sometimes, and our guys are living it right now.”In their past seven games, Wisconsin has scored only six goals, which has been difficult to overcome. Defensively, the Badgers have given up 18 goals in that same time frame.The opportunities were there for Wisconsin, but they were unable to convert. The Badgers had 19 total shots Saturday night, but only three were on target. Twelve of Wisconsin’s attempts came in the second half, but put only one of those shots on frame.Wisconsin also lost the corner kick battle 6-4, with all of their corner kicks coming in the second half.In order to get back in the win column, Brindle said the Badgers will need to find ways in which they can get high-quality chances.“We had some good chances. I know I should have put a couple more [shots] away, but we’ve been working on that in practice,” Brindle said. “Just getting into places where you can be dangerous in front of goal, they’re going to fall eventually.”Trask sees the opportunities that Wisconsin gets and knows they are close to putting more shots in the back of the net.“We had some good attacks that, with a little bit finer pass, or a little bit more clinical on the finish, and we probably get a couple more goals,” Trask said.Trask also knows this is the learning curve that comes with a young team that includes three freshmen on the attacking end.“I just felt that final third (of the field), that last pass, that last decision, that’s part of having a lot of young players, that’s the nature of the beast,” Trask said. “A year from now, the decision is better, the moment is better, and we have to continue to mature this group.”Before giving up the two late goals, the Badgers’ defense had been strong for a majority of the game. But after Wisconsin scored to go ahead, Michigan ramped up its attack to try to battle for the equalizer, and the Badgers couldn’t hold them back.“We knew they were going to come out strong after that first goal,” senior Carl Schneider said.Wisconsin has not played a full game of complete team defense yet, Trask said, but he will continue to work on it with his players.Michigan tallied seven shots on goal out of their 10 total shots on the game.“At the end of the day, we don’t seem to be able to stop the opposition from scoring goals,” Trask said.Despite the goals they have given up, the Badgers have played close games on their home turf, with this being the third straight Wisconsin home game to go to extra time.Remeniuk saved five shots on the night, but it was not enough to give the Badgers a win. It is unknown if Casey Beyers will be healthy enough to return to the starting 11 by their next game.The Badgers will play that next game at home at the McClimon Complex at 7 p.m. Tuesday against Green Bay.last_img read more

Syracuse women’s ice hockey has relied on its four freshmen this season

first_imgAnna Leschyshyn drifted into the RPI zone, her stick raised seeking a shot. Defender Jessica DiGirolamo took the puck behind the net and every Engineer skater turned toward her.It was Feb. 1, and the Orange were in the opening period of a 5-1 win against RPI. DiGirolamo sent a saucer pass into the slot and, without hesitation, Leschyshyn one-timed the puck into the Engineer’s net — lifting Syracuse to an early lead.It was the latest rookie contribution for the Orange, Leschyshyn’s sixth goal of the season — a total that’s tied for second among freshmen in College Hockey America. The transition from youth to college hockey often comes with a faster pace and stronger players, Leschyshyn said, but this group of SU freshmen have accounted for 21.8% of the team’s points over 26 games. As Syracuse (9-16-1, 7-4-1 CHA) enters its final eight games of the year, contributions from all four freshmen — forwards Madison Beishuizen, Brynn Koocher, Leschyshyn and defender Mae Batherson — will boost the Orange as they search for a second-straight conference title.“With our roster size, we expect our freshmen to come in and contribute,” head coach Paul Flanagan said.Batherson is fifth on Syracuse in points scored and leads CHA freshman scoring among defenders. The only freshman on Syracuse’s blue line, she’s already playing on the second defensive pairing. She’s on the power-play and penalty-kill units, too, and has scored 15 points, including 12 assists.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBatherson’s first of two CHA Rookie of the Week honors came at the start of conference play in November. In a two-game series against RIT, she had a goal and an assist in the opener and a power-play goal the next day.Then, Batherson dished a trio of assists in an 8-3 win against Mercyhurst for her second-highest point total in a single game. After following that up with a goal the next game, she earned her second rookie of the week honors for the four-point weekend.“Took a bit to adjust to the strength and speed of the game at first, but feeling more comfortable and confident as I go through the season,” Batherson said.The three freshmen forwards have also had varying degrees of success. Leschyshyn is ninth on the team with 12 points, Beishuizen is 12th with nine points and Koocher, despite some injury trouble, is 13th with eight points. They are all top-10 in CHA freshman scoring.“You never know how much and how often,” Flanagan said, “but I think we’re very pleased that they’ve come in, they’re all contributing in their own way.”Koocher has missed five games this season because of various reasons, including a wisdom tooth removal. Still, she’s been an integral part of the offense splitting time at second- and third-line center.The success of the freshmen for Syracuse isn’t an anomaly, though. Just last year, Lauren Bellefontaine was named CHA Rookie of the Year after scoring 20 points in 38 games and Abby Molughney finished tied for second on the team with 22 points. Together they were named to the CHA All-Rookie team and their combined point totals accounted for 19% of the Orange’s offense.This year, the individual point totals aren’t as notable but collectively, the contributions are still there. Each one-on-one skills session with assistant coach Julie Knerr has helped the four freshmen acclimate, easing Syracuse’s transition from the graduation of last seasons’ top point producers.“Trying to break the rust a little bit for them when they’re first here,” Knerr said, “but also trying to make them feel like the adjustment process is taking its own path.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 4, 2020 at 11:21 pm Contact Gaurav: gshetty@syr.edulast_img read more

Heather Garozzo – Team Dignitas – From shame to pride

first_imgWhat a difference a decade makes. Heather Garozzo is the Director of Fan Engagement at Team Dignitas. Heather Garozzo, Team DignitasAhead of XLIVE Esports Summit where she’ll be speaking at the New York event on a panel focused on women in esports, here she tells us about her own experiences in the industry. Her journey from pro player to working in a professional capacity with Team Dignitas is a journey worth documenting, especially since her career began way back when during esports’ relative early days, and continues today when it’s on the up and up. Esports Insider: You’ve been in esports for some time now, what has surprised you the most about the growth and changes in the past few years?Heather Garozzo: ​Over a decade ago, I was ashamed to tell friends, family and co-workers what I did on the weekends. I was a varsity athletes, I worked in professional sports (Milwaukee Brewers) but my secret passion was competitive video games. “We’ve built something truly from the ground up to become the fastest growing sport in the world”Fast forward to the modern day and that shame has turned to pride. For me, that’s one of the biggest changes – a surprising change. Telling many people that I played and now work in professional video games is cool. It’s met with interest and curiosity. The same seems true for many of my peers in the industry. This is something to be proud of. We’ve built something truly from the ground up to become the fastest growing sport in the world.ESI: From your personal experience, what are your thoughts on the perception and treatment of women playing in the CS:GO scene.. Has this changed much in the past couple of years? Does it need to?Heather: ​There are certainly more women in the industry than years ago – not just players, but fans and women working in the industry. I used to be the only woman in the room in a sea of hundreds. So no one really bats an eye anymore if you see a woman cheering for her favorite team or grinding out 50 hours of a week of practice. However, being disrespected online, in streams, on social media pages and in-game hasn’t gone away – and likely never will. It’s the unfortunate nature of the internet. Even the world’s best athletes are met with online harassment.I’ve learned to block that out and instead try to surround myself with supportive friends and mentors.ESI: ​What will you be discussing at your panel at the XLIVE Esports Summit in August (22-23)?Heather: ​I’ll be speaking on a women in esports panel. Despite mentioning prior that thepercentage of women in esports is drastically higher than years ago, we’re still a small minority.The non-endemic space still has questions about our path to where we are today and what we’d like to see in the future to make esports a more welcoming space for women. We’ll present thoughts on where we came from, what struggles we endured along the way and what we’d like to see for the future of women in esports. However, we hope the panel will be more of a Q&A where we’ll use our expertise to help answer questions from our audience given we’re all very different positions across the industry.ESI: You’re currently managing the all-female Dignitas CS:GO team, how did you start playing and what was it like coming up and going pro? Does more need to be done to encourage girls and women at a grassroots level, and if so what?Heather: ​I’ve played since 1999. At first, it was only something to pass the time on weekends when I didn’t have softball practice, for example. My brother would have friends over for LAN parties in my parent’s basement. Eventually, I started to gain an active interest. Since I’m incredibly competitive, I immediately became infatuated with improving my game. I later started traveling to tournaments, winning a few hundred dollars each weekend. My travels took me from regional tournaments to nation-wide tournaments and finally international events.“More should be done at the grassroots level. I’ve met so many women that ask me how to get started”Yes, more should be done at the grassroots level. I’ve met so many women that ask me how to get started. They don’t know where to find other women to play with – not that women should only play with women – but often times they find it more of a comfortable starting point. I’d love to see more local meet-ups where female gamers can get together and just have fun on LAN. The University of California-Irvine, one of the most progressive universities in regards to esports, recently has a Women’s Esports bootcamp. Several of our Team Dignitas’ professional female gamers went there to help mentor those aspiring gamers. I hope to see more events similar to this.ESI: ​What are your thoughts on female only teams and leagues? Is this a good way to go about ‘levelling up the playing field’?Heather: ​I don’t see anything wrong with female-only teams. I’ve played in both over the years.Some years, my best friends in the game happen to be male so that’s who I play with. Other times, they are female. To me, gender composition of a team is irrelevant. Play with the four other people you get the most enjoyment out of playing with. It’s hard to become a player if you don’t have great chemistry with your teammates.“The University of California-Irvine, one of the most progressive universities in regards to esports, recently has a Women’s Esports bootcamp. I hope to see more events similar to this”As for female leagues, I don’t think they are the best idea. I prefer female-only tournaments, and in moderation. The current amount, something around three to four per year, is plenty. It’s enough to give women an achievable stepping stone to becoming a better player. It’s enough that it inspires other women to want to compete and gives them something relatable to look up to. That being said, I’d never want to see the day where every tournament has a side women’s only event.“Eventually, just as a fraction of a percentage of male players emerged as stars, someday that should be the case for a fraction of a percentage of the female players too”I don’t believe there is anything physical holding women back from being top tier. Similar to males, the percent of males (a fraction of a percent) that are professionals are there because of the effort they put into becoming better. Women can, and some are attempting to do, just that. To be the best, you have to practice like and compete against the best. There are a handful of women I think that one day could play on a very top team. However, for now, I think there is simply just a need to get more women interesting in esports and competing, rather than just playing casually.Eventually, just as a fraction of a percentage of male players emerged as stars, someday that should be the case for a fraction of a percentage of the female players too.ESI: What does your position of Director of Fan Engagement at Team Dignitas entail?Heather: ​As the Director of Fan Engagement, I’m tasked with increasing our volume fans and giving them a reason to keep returning.“Historically in esports, people are fans of players, not necessarily organisations. If their favorite player moves to a new team, so does that fan’s allegiance”Historically in esports, people are fans of players, not necessarily organisations. If their favorite player moves to a new team, so does that fan’s allegiance. That’s not necessarily the case in professional sports (though obviously there are exceptions).Through streaming, social media, website content and public relationships, I’m working closely with our players and staff to increase theirs and our followings. Team Dignitas is a legacy brand in esports – one of the oldest still around, dating back to 2003. That’s something to be proud of.We’ve had over one hundred world champions play for Team Dignitas. We also have some very exciting new stars. It’s my job to help share our incredible players, their interesting stories and their game knowledge with our growing audience of fans.Source: Team DignitasESI: Can you share some thoughts on the impact of the Philadelphia 76ers ownership of Team Dignitas?Heather: ​The Philadelphia 76ers have brought a wealth of experience to our team, in multiple aspects. As it relates to our players, the Philadelphia 76ers performance team, lead by Dr. David Martin, have given us unparalleled resources at our finger tips. From sessions with a sports psychologist, to gaining insight from the Sixers’ nutritionist and chef, discussing communication with Coach Billy Lange, and learning exercises to cope with or prevent injuries, the Sixers have given Team Dignitas a regimented training program that will improve our future access. They’ve also built a bootcamp area, overlooking the NBA practice court, where our teams can practice from during their routine visits for the training program.“As it relates to our players, the Philadelphia 76ers performance team, lead by Dr. David Martin, have given us unparalleled resources at our finger tips”On the business end, our internal marketing team is communicating with the Sixers daily, all the way up to their CEO. The Philadelphia 76ers, along with the NJ Devils & the Prudential Center have a invested but also very genuine interest in our success. We’re both learning about each other’s industries and trying to pave the way for the future of both esports and sports.Disclaimer: Esports Insider is an official media partner of the XLIVE Esports Summit.

Tommy Fleetwood downbeat after British Open bid falls flat: ‘I just hope my time will come eventually’

first_img British Open 2019: J.B. Holmes racks up nightmare 87 in final round It marks the second time Fleetwood has finished runner-up in a major, having done so at Shinnecock in last year’s U.S. Open, but he concedes falling short in The Open stings more.”Shinnecock — I felt great that week. Shinnecock has a little piece of history, I shot 63 and it felt great. It was never my tournament,” Fleetwood told reporters. “Today I was much more in the mix. I’ve had a really good feeling all weekend. Related News “The other part of it is, and I’m not putting down the U.S. Open, but if I could pick one event (to win) it would be The Open. It’s my dream, and it always will be. And you’re teeing off in the last group on Sunday with a very, very good chance.”So it feels a lot rougher finishing when you feel like you’ve come so close to what you’ve dreamt as a kid. So that one just feels different.” British Open 2019: Shane Lowry reflects on stunning turnaround to victorycenter_img PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland — A downbeat Tommy Fleetwood is sure he will eventually have plenty of positives to take after his “dream” of winning The Open fell flat on a difficult final day at Royal Portrush.Fleetwood could only muster a three-over 74 and finished six shots behind runaway winner Shane Lowry amid wet and windy conditions in Northern Ireland.

I think for me personally it was nice to play more like I feel like how I should play again,” Fleetwood added.”And of course it’s my second runner-up in a major, which is great and I’m trending in the right way.
