Cricket News Pakistan Cricket Board Posts Video Of Players Dancing After Sarfaraz Ahmed Sacking, Apologises
New Delhi: Pakistan Cricket is in the midst of some interesting changes following the changes to the captaincy on Friday. Sarfaraz Ahmed was sacked as the Test and Twenty20 International skipper and the Pakistan Cricket Board appointed Azhar Ali as the new Test captain and Babar Azam as the Twenty20 International skipper. The immediate task for the two individuals will be the upcoming tour of Australia, where Pakistan will play three Twenty20 Internationals and two Tests in November. The two Tests will be part of the ICC World Test Championships.However, in what can be termed as a case of severely bad timing, the PCB’s official Twitter handle did a major goof-up. Following the announcement of Sarfaraz being sacked as the skipper, the PCB Twitter handle uploaded a video where players were dancing. Fakhar Zaman is seen doing the Bhangra. The tweet was removed and the PCB out out an apology.”The PCB apologies for this post and accepts the timing of it was wrong. This was a pre-planned post as part of the one-year to go #T20WorldCup promotional campaign. The timing of this post clashed with the captaincy announcement for which the PCB offers its regrets,” the PCB wrote.Sarfaraz’s sacking came in the aftermath of Pakistan getting whitewashed 3-0 in the recent Twenty20 International series by a second-string Sri Lanka side missing some of their key players. This was the first time since 2015 that Pakistan were whitewashed 3-0 in T20Is and it was the first loss for Sarfaraz as skipper of the Pakistan team.Sarfaraz took over the captaincy following the retirement of Misbah ul Haq and he led in 13 Tests, winning four but losing eight Tests. Sarfaraz’s high point came in the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy when he led Pakistan to victory in the final against India but since then, he has endured a torrid time. Pakistan were whitewashed 3-0 in the Tests against South Africa and in the same series, Sarfaraz was banned for four games for a racist taunt against Andile Phehlukwayo. Also Read | Sarfaraz Ahmed Sacked As Pakistan Test And T20I Skipper, Azhar Ali And Babar Azam New CaptainsIn a PCB release, Azhar Ali hailed Sarfaraz’s contribution. “Sarfaraz has done an excellent job in transforming raw talent into experienced players and I now look forward to inspiring those skillful players in our endeavours to collectively achieve our World Test Championship objectives and beyond,” Azhar said in a statement.

Yearning for another championship, women’s water polo prepares for their first competitive preseason game Friday against the UC San Diego Tritons before traveling to Whittier on Saturday. The weekend will begin the Women of Troy’s campaign to the MPSF and NCAA playoffs.The No. 19 Tritons have garnered a 3-1 preseason record beating Azusa Pacific 15-7, CSUN 10-9 and CSU Bakersfield 9-7 while falling to UC Santa Barbara 9-10. Senior 2-meter defender Alexis Wieseler has already paved her way as the preseason leading scorer for the Tritons with 13 goals in 4 games while goalie Courtney Miller has racked up 38 saves thus far in preseason play.Returning for his 22nd consecutive season, Coach Vavic and the Women of Troy expect to make a splash in the preseason and MPSF play on their campaign for a thirteenth straight trip to the NCAA Tournament. With seven members having played at the national level in both the FINA World Championship and the FINA Junior World Championship, the Women of Troy have proven to be a highly skilled team to be reckoned with.Looking into the roster, the Trojans boast a deep defensive line-up with six outstanding goalies, including sophomore Victória Chamorro who had an outstanding freshman season with 207 saves and All-MPSF honors. Making her debut season with the Trojans, Amanda Longan is expected to bring extra fire to the cage with an already impressive track record, having received the Top Goalkeeper award at the 2015 FINA Junior World Championship.Opponents of the Trojans face double trouble on offense from the Haralabidis sisters, Ioanna and Stephania who shared a total of 114 goals last season, and Canadian sophomore Hayley McKelvey who represented Canada in the 2012 and 2014 FINA Youth World Championships as well as the 2015 FINA Junior World Championship.“Our main goal is to be the best defensive team in the league,” sophomore captain driver Brianna Daboub said. “Ultimately, we’d like to take down No. 1 Stanford and be NCAA champions.”The Women of Troy are confident in their younger squad and believe they have a special chemistry that will ultimately set them apart from the competition and lead them to the playoffs.“Though we did lose some key players, we have a younger talented team and we are very close, so we’re working to play as a unit in the pool and stay strong on defense,” senior driver Melissa Bergesen said.The season opener against the Tritons will begin at 5 p.m. at the Uytengsu Aquatic Center.
LIVE TV Pete Carroll said Monday he remained in contact with Jadeveon Clowney throughout the offseason and the Seattle Seahawks were in on conversations through last weekend before the defensive end signed with Tennessee.“I talked to him throughout the process and stayed with him. We had really good, amicable conversations about things and he was just waiting the whole time,” Carroll said. “He had his sights set really high to start with and it just put him in a situation where he had to wait it out and he didn’t get near the amount that he wanted as it turned out. Our offers and stuff early on didn’t look attractive to him because he had his mindset elsewhere.”Ultimately, Clowney’s decision to sign elsewhere leaves the defensive line and specifically the pass rush as one of Seattle’s biggest questions going into the season opener at Atlanta.But Carroll feels comfortable with what the Seahawks did and how the options in the pass rush looked during training camp.“The early season will tell us,” Carroll said. “We need to get them on file and see what it looks like.”Carroll said Monday that Ethan Pocic will be Seattle’s starting center for the opener, ending one of the few competitions in training camp. Pocic beat out free agent signing B.J. Finney for the starting nod. He’ll be the third new starter on Seattle’s offensive line that includes new right tackle Brandon Shell and right guard Damien Lewis.One spot that could be unsettled, or at least a rotation initially, is cornerback. Quinton Dunbar was the presumed starter, but was away from the team late last week for a funeral and was unable to practice on Monday having not cleared testing protocols. Carroll expects Dunbar back on Wednesday, but his brief absence could lead to Tre Flowers getting a bigger role in the opener.“Tre came back with a level of confidence and two years behind him here that he’s benefited from,” Carroll said. “He had a really good camp, was the best he’s been and did a nice job.”Carroll also said the Seahawks expect Phillip Dorsett to be able to play against the Falcons despite being slowed by a foot problem that has limited his participation in practice the past couple of weeks.NOTES: Seattle placed OL Phil Haynes on injured reserve due to a hip injury and signed FB Nick Bellore to the active roster. … Carroll said newly added LB D’Andre Walker is an option at strongside linebacker and as an addition to the pass rush. Walker was claimed off waivers from Tennessee.Image credits: AP Last Updated: 8th September, 2020 07:00 IST Carroll Says Seahawks Were In Contact With Clowney Till End Pete Carroll said Monday he remained in contact with Jadeveon Clowney throughout the offseason and the Seattle Seahawks were in on conversations through last weekend before the defensive end signed with Tennessee SUBSCRIBE TO US Written By COMMENT WATCH US LIVE First Published: 8th September, 2020 07:00 IST Associated Press Television News FOLLOW US

Mane’s shot from inside the area was stopped by Rico but Firmino was in position to easily tap in the rebound.“We played a very good first half and we stopped playing football in the second half,” Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp said. “We didn’t play until we conceded the second goal. After that we improved and had a couple of chances, but they got the equalizer. You have to stay in the game and close the game out. That was our main mistake, we didn’t play football.”Yedder got on the board with a header in the 51st and a penalty kick in the 60th.

Think having a midlife crisis is bad? New research says that you might go through one every 10 years—at least, if you consider a “crisis” to be a time of self-reflection. Psychologists writing this month in PLOS ONE have found that—among women—life satisfaction is more closely linked to objective measures of health at the “milestone ages,” of 30, 40, and 50, suggesting that people entering a new decade evaluate their lives differently than others. “If you’re turning 39, you throw a party or you go out for a beer. When you turn 40, you sort of have this mental checklist,” says Talya Miron-Shatz, a psychologist at Ono Academic College in Kiryat Ono, Israel, and lead author on the study. “You start asking questions about health and where you are in life.” Analyzing surveys that measure well-being, collected from 800 women in Columbus, the researchers say that women at milestone ages showed increased longer term thinking compared with their peers between decades. Their evidence? Rather than focusing on daily emotion, women at milestone ages were twice as likely to assess their overall happiness in terms of self-reported health. These self-reported health levels generally lined up with objective measures of health, like body mass index. Miron-Shatz cautions the findings are preliminary and don’t apply to everyone. But she says they could be useful in identifying ages at which women are more open to individualized or public health interventions.
