MS Dhoni not getting younger, leave the man alone: Sunil Gavaskar

first_imgBrief Scores: India (299/4; Kohli 104, Dhoni 55 not out) beat Australia (298/9; Marsh 131, Maxwell 48, Bhuvneshwar 4 for 45) by 6 wickets. Full ScorecardMS Dhoni defied age to slam an unbeaten 55 off 54 balls in the unrelenting Adelaide heat as India chased down 299 against Australia with six wickets and four balls to spare. Thanks to Dhoni’s 69th fifty and Virat Kohli’s 39th hundred, India have been able to draw level 1-1 in the three-match series.MS Dhoni’s form was a big talking point ahead of the ODI series. Last year, he managed only 275 runs from 20 ODIs without scoring a fifty. On Saturday, Dhoni ploughed his way to 51 off 96 balls and failed to accelerate as India fell short by 34 runs in the first ODI in Sydney.However, it was a different story on Tuesday at the Adelaide Oval. Faced with a steep chase of 299, India were able to get off to a good start. Shikhar Dhawan (32) and Rohit Sharma (43) played their parts before Virat Kohli took control with a 112-ball 104.It was Kohli’s 82-run stand with MS Dhoni that put India in command. Even after Kohli’s dismissal, India never looked like being out of the fight, thanks in no small measure to Dinesh Karthik and MS Dhoni, who stayed calm under pressure.This innings must be a huge relief for MS Dhoni fans – over the last year, their hero has had to endure stinging criticism for his inability to finish matches. Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar said it was important to realise Dhoni was not getting any younger and urged critics to be more patient with him.advertisementMS Dhoni is 37 but the Indian team considers him to be crucial to their plans for the World Cup.”He keeps telling the bowlers to bowl a particular delivery, what a batsman is planning to do. He has a sense of what a batsman is thinking. Obviously, nobody can read precisely what is going on in a batsman mind…the best way to help bowlers, the best way to help field placements for a captain or wicketkeeper is to put himself in that particular batsman’s place or mind. What the batsman is looking to do now…is he looking to get out of jail kind of shot? Is he looking to push the ball ball around for a single? These are the kind of things where Dhoni helps the bowlers and of course with the field placing because Virat is so important in the deep in the final overs when he saves those two runs diving around, takes magnificent catches in the deep. So it’s not possible for Virat to maybe have a conversation with the bowlers or maybe to make adjustments to the square fielders. That is where Virat has complete faith and trust in Dhoni to make those little bit of adjustments for him,” Gavaskar told India Today.”That value you cannot calculate at all. My prayer is to please leave the gentleman alone and he will continue to do well. He is also not getting younger. So the consistency you might have at a younger age will obviously not be there and you have to bear with that. Bear with that little inconsistency. But he’s still tremendous value to the team.”Not just Gavaskar. Virat Kohli, who won the man-of-the-match award for his 104, said Dhoni kept him calm and ensured he did not get too carried away during a tense chase. “Tonight was an MS classic. Only he knows what’s going through his mind. He calculates the game so well. He backs himself to hit those big hits. Hats off to him and Dinesh as well.”He came in and showed the right kind of intent. MS was as composed as ever. We try and help each other… Tonight was special for us,” Kohli said.Gavaskar is also confident Dhoni will get his rhythm back before the World Cup starts.”India now go to New Zealand for the one day series and T20 series then they comeback and play the one day matches against Australia and a couple of T20s. Then the IPL starts. So he’ll be playing pretty much right through till the World Cup starts and he’ll be settled till then. He’ll get a 10-day break before the World Cup starts. I think it would have been ideal had he played a bit of cricket before he came to Australia. Not just he, but Shikhar Dhawan and Ambati Rayudu also. We can see a little bit of rustiness. Let’s just focus on today, let’s just focus on tomorrow and hope that with the matches in store with the IPL together, India will be ready for World,” he said.advertisementAlso Read | MS Dhoni has done this for years: Dinesh Karthik on match-winning stand in AdelaideAlso Read | Jasprit Bumrah salutes MS Dhoni: Legends don’t need to prove their worth to anyoneAlso Read | MS Dhoni overtakes Virat Kohli for highest average in successful run chaseslast_img read more

Former Vessel Captain Convicted of Oily Waste Dumping

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Leiplaw The former captain of the fishing vessel Native Sun was found guilty of discharging oily waste directly into the ocean, thereby violating the Act to Prevent Pollution from Ships, the U.S. Department of Justice informed.The government alleged and proved that Randall Fox, one-time captain of the Native Sun, discharged bilge slops from the vessel directly overboard into the ocean using unapproved pumps and hoses.One of these discharges was video-recorded by a crewmember, who reported the crime to authorities.Following a three-day trial, Randall Fox faces a maximum of six years in prison and a criminal fine of up to USD 250,000.“Today’s (April 5) conviction shows that illegal dumping in our oceans will not be tolerated,” Acting Assistant Attorney General Jeff Wood of the Justice Department’s Environment and Natural Resources Division (ENRD), said.Other evidence at trial established that the Native Sun had repeatedly pumped its bilges in the same manner depicted in the video. Bingham Fox, the defendant’s father and the owner of the Native Sun, was convicted at trial of related crimes a year ago.The Act to Prevent Pollution from Ships prohibits the discharge of bilge slops and other oily mixtures, unless they have been properly treated using approved pollution prevention equipment and meet rigorous standards.last_img read more

Ohio States defense might be hitting its stride as season ending

The conversation about Ohio State’s defense is changing inside and outside the huddle. The Buckeyes, which limited a hapless, anemic Illinois offense to 170 yards in a 52-22 shellacking on Saturday, moved to 10-0 and one step closer to the program’s first undefeated season since 2002. And while the Illini’s own incompetence and 118th national ranking in total offense might have helped OSU’s Silver Bullets, sophomore linebacker Ryan Shazier said the talk in the huddle among members of the once much-maligned defense is different than what it was before. “It just got a lot easier to talk to each other, everybody’s gonna have each other accountable for everything,” said Shazier, who was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week after a 14-tackle outing Saturday. “Now when we go in the huddle, we don’t talk about ‘Don’t let the big play happen, don’t let this, don’t let that’ – we just go in there talking about ‘We need a turnover, three-and-out, get the offense the ball.’” This just might be reflective of a defense coming of age, particularly after surrendering 49 points on the road against a now 4-5 Indiana squad. Though the Buckeyes left Bloomington, Ind., with a shaky 52-49 win, first-year coach Urban Meyer approached the contest’s postgame press conference arguably as disgusted as he’d been all season. Meyer even hinted at taking a more active role in a defense that had given up 87 points in back-to-back weeks. But now? After allowing 22 and 23 points in wins against Purdue and at Penn State, respectively, Meyer said improvement on the defense’s part has been evident. “Ever since the Indiana debacle in the second half, I’ve seen pretty much four-to-six seconds,” Meyer said regarding the level of effort he’s come to expect out of the Buckeyes. “And I see a lot of hard coaching going on. And that’s what I expect out of our staff.” It’s a line Meyer’s used since he came to Columbus in Nov. 2011-4-6 seconds, he said, of relentless effort, relentless pursuit on every play of every game. By the former Florida coach’s calculations, it’s enough to win football games. OSU cornerback redshirt sophomore Bradley Roby said the defense is getting back to that pillar of Meyer’s coaching philosophy. “Since the Indiana game we had a lot of serious meetings and we had to get it done on defense, and that’s what we’ve been doing lately,” he said. Like Meyer, Roby said the game against the Hoosiers was a “wake up call.” “We were like, ‘Man, we’re way better than this.’ Ever since then we been practicing harder and playing harder and it’s been showing,” Roby said. Arguably, such progression had never been so apparent before Saturday in a game which saw OSU secure more first downs (32) than the Illini had points. In reality, OSU’s defense gave up just 14 points, considering eight of Illinois’ points came off a 77-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown late in the game’s fourth quarter. Illini junior quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase mustered just 96 yards and an interception against an OSU front-seven that harassed him from start to finish. “From what I saw he was just running around all day,” Roby said. While Scheelhaase was sacked twice, the Buckeyes’ defensive line appeared to be getting enough of a push to allow its linebackers, Shazier included, to slam the door shut on runs to the outside and entrench themselves against short, dump-off passes over the middle. “It’s pretty fun when the coaches let the team loose and let us go after the ball,” Shazier said. “I’ve been playing like this mentality for all my life, see ball, get ball.” That aggressiveness, however, might only be made possible because of a more aware defense. OSU assistant head coach and co-defensive coordinator Everett Withers said players are comprehending, perhaps now more than ever, what’s happening on any given play. “The biggest deal is I think our kids in the back seven are starting to understand when we get this formation, these are the two or three things that will happen,” Withers said. “Everybody’s recognizing exactly what they need to see in that formation.” And if Illinois is any indication, it might be working. “We knew exactly what was coming before they even ran it sometimes,” Shazier said. With a bye this weekend, OSU travels to Wisconsin on Nov. 17 for its second-to-last game of the 2012 season. read more

Mens basketball 2018 recruit Dane Goodwin remains committed waiting for new coach

Upper Arlington four-star shooting guard Dane Goodwin goes up for a shot against Westerville South on Jan. 24, 2017 at Upper Arlington High School. Credit: Jacob Myers | Managing EditorAn anxious state of uncertainty flows through the Schottenstein Center and anyone affiliated with the Ohio State men’s basketball team after Monday’s firing of coach Thad Matta.Before OSU Athletics Director Gene Smith announced with Matta that the program would be heading in a different direction, the two commitments for the 2018 class, Justin Ahrens and Dane Goodwin, each received a call from OSU assistant coach Greg Paulus informing them of the news.Tuesday, the three-star forward Ahrens from Versailles, Ohio, decommitted from the Buckeyes 2018 class, making Goodwin, a four-star shooting guard from Upper Arlington, Ohio, the lone commitment in the class as he awaits the hiring of a new head coach at OSU for the 2017-18 season.Damon Goodwin, Dane’s father and coach of Capital University’s men’s basketball team, told The Lantern that when the two returned home from Damon’s basketball camp at Capital Monday, the family discussed what they wanted to do. He said that Dane still wants to be a Buckeye, if he feels that the program is a good fit.“He’s kept his commitment (to OSU),” Damon said. “In Dane’s mindset, I think he wants to lay low for the next few days and see what happens and see who this guy is going to be and hopefully they do it fairly quickly.“Dane committed two-and-a-half years ago and we certainly didn’t foresee this happening at the time. We knew a little bit before it happened. But did we expect it? No. Did I expect it? Certainly not.”Dane committed to OSU on Dec. 1, 2014 as he was beginning his freshman season at Upper Arlington High School. Having committed so early in the process, Dane’s family never had to worry about going through the recruiting process with him, which Damon said he was thankful for. Now, a wrench has been thrown into that seamlessly easy recruiting cycle raising lots of questions that not only he has to find an answer to, but also other Columbus-area prospects like 2019 guard Jeremiah Francis and 2019 forward Jordan Mitchell.“The reality is this: (Dane) committed to Ohio State two-and-a-half years ago, but he also committed to Thad Matta. One of those variable is gone now,” Damon said. “Ohio State is a special place and Dane knows that. And he knows how special it can be for him. But there’s just so many question marks as of today.”Damon said that some of those question are regarding who OSU decides to bring in. Dane and Damon will evaluate the new coach’s style, what type of players he will be looking for among other factors. Damon said he has no doubt OSU will find a very good coach — one who he hopes has a lot of the same qualities Matta had.“With Dane being a 17-year-old, the last few years he kind of had it planned out where he was going to be and who he was going to be playing for,” he said. “That world has been rocked a little bit right now. It’s tough for him and tough on us as parents. There’s really nothing to do until they decide who is going to lead the program.”As of now, Dane has not had any other schools directly reach out to him, his father said.Matta’s departure was especially hard on Dane and their family given the profound impact the former coach had on them from the start of Dane’s recruitment.“I never knew (Matta) before he recruited Dane,” Damon Goodwin said. “I think Dane and I and our whole family were just kind of blown away by his sincerity. He offered Dane — you know, he hadn’t played a high school game. (Matta) saw him play in the summers. He saw him work out in the fall and when a guy like that makes a commitment to your son, that’s impressive.“As a father, I don’t know what else you would want out of a coach for your son. He’s a good man. That’s certainly the toughest part.”Jacob Myers: myers.1669@osu.edu and Twitter @Jacob _Myers_25 read more

Cardiff boss Warnock blasts scandalous domestic loan rules

first_imgCardiff manager Neil Warnock has condemned what he believes are  Premier League loan rules which he described as “Scandalous.”Current English Premier league loan rules stipulate that clubs can only have a maximum of two players on loan from other Premier League teams, and only one from any given Premier League club.Cardiff have Bournemouth’s Harry Arter in their squad presently, meaning they can only make one more Premier League loan signing in January’s transfer window.“Heaven knows why we can only have two Premier League loans in,” Warnock told Itv, ahead of the Boxing Day clash against his former club Crystal Palace.“When you are talking about English players needing experience – our younger players for the English team – and we can’t loan more than one more player.MANCHESTER, ENGLAND - MAY 12: Cardiff manager Neil Warnock celebrates with the fans after the Premier League match between Manchester United and Cardiff City at Old Trafford on May 12, 2019 in Manchester, United Kingdom.

You can bring 10 from abroad, so who are we trying to help?“Who has invented these rules? It’s a disgrace, really, when I could be giving another good young English lad an opportunity of playing in the Premier League.” Warnock admits that the loan market will be his likely port of call as he looks at squad strengthening.“Hopefully, we can bring in one or two over the next couple of weeks to give us a little bit more choice with selection,” he added.“I would like to think I’ve got one (player) close, but you just never know.”last_img read more

UCI Commercial Fishing Outlook For 2019 Season Far Better Than Last Year

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A run of approximately 6 million sockeye salmon is forecasted to return to Upper Cook Inlet in 2019, with an expected harvest by all user groups of 4 million, according to numbers released by the Department of Fish and Game on Thursday. The commercial fishery harvest in 2019 is estimated to be approximately 3 million sockeye salmon, which is 200,000 fish more than the 20-year average annual commercial sockeye salmon harvest. The run forecast for the Kenai River is approximately 3.8 million, which is 200,000 greater than the 20-year average run of 3.6 million. Brian Marston, Area Management Biologist: “The sockeye salmon forecast are slightly above average and looking far better than last year. It doesn’t mean a whole lot of difference at first in our management for this year, because we will still be in our second year for the Monday, Thursday fishing periods.
