That the 1992 World Cup was cricket’s version of a revolution is pretty obvious. Be it the introduction of coloured clothing with player names at the back, a large number of floodlit matches, white balls at either end of the pitch or the 15-over field restrictions – limited-overs cricket as we know it now can trace its roots back to this World Cup, hosted for the first time by Australia and New Zealand.Imran Khan’s team in mint green gathered steam after an initially floundering campaign.Eventually, it was Imran Khan’s team in mint green that gathered steam after an initially floundering campaign. Pakistan took home the gleaming Waterford crystal trophy after defeating England by 22 runs in the final in front of over 87,000 at the newly-refurbished Melbourne Cricket Ground.This was the only time the World Cup was played in a completely round-robin format, with South Africa coming back from their apartheid-induced isolation to become the ninth team in the fray with only a few months left for the event. The top four teams would then proceed to the semi-finals.New Zealand took on defending champions Australia in the opening match at Eden Park in Auckland and, thanks to an unbeaten century by captain Martin Crowe, beat their fancied neighbours.Some of Crowe’s captaincy innovations are being followed even today, including opening the bowling with off-spinner Dipak Patel and sending Mark Greatbatch out as a pinchhitting opener with the steady John Wright to make full use of the new fielding restrictions and the short boundaries.advertisementSoon, England and New Zealand emerged as the teams to beat by keeping virtually perfect records till the closing stages. The eventual champions, on the other hand, won just one of their first five games.Then came Pakistan’s match against South Africa, in which Jonty Rhodes – who was already establishing himself as a livewire – took out a young Inzamam-ul-Haq with an airborne run-out, in what became a lasting image of his fielding. Pakistan had three points from five matches with just three more to play.It was at this stage that Imran told his team to play like ‘cornered tigers’. The 39-year-old’s leadership galvanised his young team, which was missing pace spearhead Waqar Younis, and they responded with victories against Australia, Sri Lanka and New Zealand to scrape through ahead of Australia.The Allan Border-led side ended up fifth, with four wins and four defeats, failing to live up to their pre-tournament billing as favourites. The first semi-final was played in Auckland, with New Zealand piling up 262 for seven courtesy a 91 from player-ofthe-tournament Crowe. But Miandad anchored the chase with an unbeaten 57 and Inzamam hit a hurricane 60 off 37 balls to help the Asians win by four wickets.The other semi-final, however, produced one of the most infamous incidents in limitedovers cricket. England posted 252 for six in 45 overs in Sydney thanks to Graeme Hick’s 83 and South Africa were at 231 for six in 42.5 overs, needing 22 to win off 13 balls. But a sudden shower reduced the number of overs to 43.The rain rule was such that the new target was obtained by subtracting the lowest-scoring overs of the opposition’s innings from the final score and thus, South Africa needed a farcical 21 off one ball when play resumed.The final saw the old guard of Imran and Javed Miandad rescue Pakistan from a double strike by Derek Pringle, putting on 139 to help their team reach 249 for six in 50 overs, aided by quickfire knocks from Inzamam and Wasim Akram.Akram then took out Ian Botham in the opening stages before returning to dismiss Allan Lamb and Chris Lewis off consecutive deliveries. Leg-spinner Mushtaq Ahmed too chipped in with three wickets. For Imran, it was the realisation of a lifelong dream and he dedicated the victory to a cancer hospital in his mother’s name. INDIAN ANGLEIndia went in with a good blend of youth and experience, and a young man named Sachin Tendulkar made his World Cup debut.However, the Mohammad Azharuddin-led team struggled with its fielding and disappointing performances overall, winning just two matches – against Zimbabwe and Pakistan, with one match against Sri Lanka being abandoned. Tendulkar shone with 283 runs in eight matches, cracking half-centuries against New Zealand, Pakistan and Zimbabwe. But the curtains came down on the World Cup careers of 1983 champions Kapil Dev, Ravi Shastri and Krishnamachari Srikkanth.VENUE PROFILESARDAR PATEL STADIUM, MOTERA, AHMEDABAD This 48,000-seater stadium was built in 1982 on the banks of the Sabarmati River on the outskirts of Ahmedabad. Located on a 50-acre site, it took only nine months to construct it. The first ODI played here was the fourth between India and Australia in 1984, with Australia winning by 7 wickets.

Ohio State sophomore pitcher Jake Vance (3) throws a pitch in the third inning of the game against Ohio University in April 10. Ohio State won 4-0. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThe combined pitching staffs of Ohio State and Youngstown State dragged on a Wednesday night matchup for three hours and 26 minutes, struggling to find the strike zone while issuing a combined 17 walks. The difference for Ohio State (25-10, 6-3 Big Ten) was its ability to strike out batters, 15 in total, with the team cruising to a 12-3 victory against Youngstown State. (10-23, 7-7 Horizon).“We can’t create that type of help for our opponent if we’re gonna beat a really good team,” head coach Greg Beals said.Youngstown State’s control issues began early. Junior starter Kip DeShields walked four batters, threw a wild pitch and surrendered three runs on one hit while recording just one out before being pulled.The Penguins’ pitching struggles continued in the third, when the Buckeyes strung together five straight hits to extend their lead to 6-2.Youngstown State’s pitching staff finished with 10 walks, a hit batter, four wild pitches and a balk.Ohio State sophomore first baseman Conner Pohl extended his hitting streak to 15 games, swatting a three-run home run in the fourth. He finished the day 2-for-4.“[I’m] not chasing any off-speed, just playing my game honestly,” Pohl said. “I’m a fastball hitter and just seeing fastballs to hit.”Youngstown State trailed the game by seven runs late in the game and had back-to-back innings with the bases loaded, but both times failed to capitalize.Ohio State sophomore Jake Vance got off to a rocky start on the mound with a 43-pitch first inning, but smoothed things out in the second and finished with one earned run and five strikeouts in three innings.Redshirt sophomore second baseman Matt Carpenter recorded his first career hit in the victory.“You could tell by the reaction from the dugout tonight, that tells you what type of teammate he is,” Beals said. “Speaks to the talent that’s up and down the lineup and throughout that locker room. There’s guys that aren’t getting regular playing time that can play.”Redshirt senior Austin Woodby pitched a pair of innings for the Buckeyes and received his first win of the season.Even with the 12-run performance on Wednesday, Ohio State had the opportunity to do more damage against Youngstown State. The Buckeyes left 12 runners on base while the Penguins left 14 runners on base and scored only three runs. After scoring 31 runs in their past two games, the Buckeyes will begin a three-game set with Indiana on Friday.
In a tough and well-fought match, Morocco lost its opening match of FIFA World Cup against its Asian counterpart, Iran, as Morocco substitute Aziz Bouhaddouz scored an own goal in injury time giving Iran their first win match since 1998.Morocco started aggressively and dominated the proceedings for first 20 minutes of the game but lost the grip on the match as the game proceeded. Bouhaddouz put the ball into his own net with a diving header at the near post in the 95th minute as Morocco defended a left-wing free-kick.The African side had wasted numerous chances in the first half and were denied later on when Iran goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand produced a fine save from Hakim Ziyech.Ali Daei wouldn’t be upset if Ronaldo breaks his scoring record Andrew Smyth – September 13, 2019 Iranian legend Ali Daei wouldn’t be upset to lose his record as international football’s all-time record scorer to the “great” Cristiano Ronaldo.But Iran took went with the win, and this their second time in World Cup history after a 2-1 win over the United States at France 1998.Morocco became the second African side to concede a late winning goal in the World Cup on Friday, after Egypt lost 1-0 to Uruguay in Group A, thanks to a last-minute header from Jose Gimenez.
In 2015, there was a Cristiano Ronaldo’s film which gave an insight into his sporting and personal life, it is 2018 and the Portugues international star is set to start up his own reality show and it will be about himself, only that this time, it will be on social media.The reality show will follow Ronaldo on and off the pitch and shall be partly produced by Tom Brady’s Religion of Sports media company who had before now, created a series on the NFL star named Tom vs Time for Facebook Watch, according to Variety via FourFourTwo.Ronaldo who has 122m followers on his official Facebook page seeks to sell the concept of a 13-part series with Facebook reportedly keen to secure it.Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.The series has been reported to have a value of around $10m (£8.8m) and this means Ronaldo will be adequately paid no matter who it’s sold to. However, that isn’t the only one the five-time Ballon d’Or winne wants to have.Ronaldo will launch a superhero series named Striker Force 7 and a drama following a girls’ high school soccer team in upstate New York very soon.
Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has advised Paris Saint-Germain to sign Aaron Ramsey.The French champions have reportedly joined Bayern Munich in the race for the signature of Aaron Ramsey and have received rave reviews from his old boss Arsene Wenger, Metro claims.Ramsey is out of contract next summer and is expected to leave the Gunners after they surprisingly withdrew their contract offer despite months of positive talks.It had been reported that Ramsey’s destination is Munich, but reports in France claim PSG have been advised to try and sign him by Wenger.The former AS Monaco manager who signed Ramsey back in 2008, has a good relationship with PSG’s owners and has been linked with the sporting director role at the club.Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.Wenger has met with PSG manager Thomas Tuchel previously and talk of singing the Wales international came up, with Wenger Le Parisian’s fears.Arsenal are reportedly mulling over whether to cash in on Ramsey when the transfer window reopens in January should they receive a good enough offer.Though the 27-year-old can begin negotiating a pre-contract agreement to leave free as soon as the window opens.Bayern are understood to have held talks with the former Cardiff MSN’s representatives with Ramsey demanding around £200,000 in weakly wages as well as a huge signing-on fee.
Cardiff 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.Warnock will coach Cardiff City for one more year Manuel R. Medina – May 15, 2019 The manager will guide the Bluebirds in the English Championship, but he will also help the team find his successor.“I’ve got Harry Arter, so I can’t take a young English striker or a young English midfield player, if I’ve got another one (on loan).“It’s scandalous, really. 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.”
