However, he kept his eyes on the ball and took a stunning catch. The left-armer ended the innings in style in the final over when last man Yuzvendra Chahal tapped a full ball back to Boult, Mohammed Shami set off for a non-existent run and was sent back mid-pitch. Boult ran to the bowler’s end and flew like superman to break the stumps and run-out Shami.The image of Boult running and throwing himself onto the stumps to un-out a batsman evoked memories of Jonty Rhodes, the ace South African fielder’s effort against Inzamam-ul-Haq in the 1992 World Cup clash between Pakistan and South Africa in Brisbane. Inzamam looked to slog pacer Brian McMillan to square leg but the ball hit his pad and ballooned to point. Inzamam wanted a run but was sent back mid-pitch. The batsman turned but Rhodes ran like a hare from point and threw himself at the striker’s end to demolish the stumps and run-out Inzamam.Brilliant athleticismThis is not the first time Boult has displayed such athleticism at international level. In the 2013 Test against West Indies at the Basin Reserve, Wellington, Denesh Ramdin cut a short ball from Corey Anderson but Boult at point dived to his left and plucked a stunning one-handed catch to dismiss Ramdin. In 2014 against India at the same venue, Ajinkya Rahane miscued a full ball to extra cover off Tim Southee but Boult ran forward and dived to take a catch with one hand.In a Twenty20 match against the West Indies in Dominica, Kieron Pollard pulled Anderson to deep midwicket but Boult took a one-handed catch but lost his balance, he jumped over the ropes while tossing the ball up, he came back in and took the catch diving parallel to the ground. In the Delhi Daredevils vs Royal Challengers Bangalore game in Bangalore, Boult took a stunning catch near the boundary to catch Virat Kohli. Kohli flicked a full toss from Harshal Patel to deep square leg but Boult turned around and took a catch over his head to complete a brilliant catch near the boundary.Boult can bowl marvellously. Boult can field like Superman. Trent Boult is indeed a master. Trent Boult picked up his fifth five-wicket haul in the Hamilton ODI.Boult snapped up MS Dhoni cheaply for 1 in Wellington.India have won a series in New Zealand for the first time since 2009. New Delhi: Trent Boult is well-known as a world-class bowler and his 5/21 in the Hamilton ODI was testament to his great skills. However, not many are aware that Boult is one of the best fielders in the world as well. In the Wellington ODI against India, Boult was on fire not just with the ball but also in the field and his athleticism helped New Zealand restrict the damage after Ambati Rayudu’s brilliant 90 and a magnificent 22-ball 45 from Hardik Pandya which propelled Indian cricket team to 252 all out. Boult continued his great run by getting rid of Shikhar Dhawan for 6 but it was his delivery to MS Dhoni that provided the fans at the Cake Tin with a memorable moment.Boult angled a full ball across on off stump and the delivery straightened on off stump, the former India skipper missed it to be cleaned up for 1. However, Rayudu’s 98-run stand with Vijay Shankar (45) and 74-run stand with Kedar Jadhav (34) laid a solid platform for India and Hardik Pandya’s blitz off 45 off 22 balls put India on course for a big total but it was in the 49th over that Boult’s fielding took precedence.
(REUTERS) – Australia captain Steve Smith and his India counterpart Virat Kohli have escaped any charges after a controversial Decision Review System (DRS) incident in this week’s Bengaluru Test, the International Cricket Council said on yesterday.Kohli accused Smith of ‘crossing the line’ on Tuesday when he was given out leg-before-wicket but looked towards the players’ area in the stands as he mulled over whether to ask for a review of the umpire’s decision using DRS.Players are not allowed to seek direction on reviews apart from conferring with the non-striker. Neither team can make more than two unsuccessful review requests per 80 overs.Smith said it was a one-off incident caused by “brain fade” but Kohli countered that it was not the first time it had happened and that he had complained to the match officials.“In relation to Steve Smith and Virat Kohli, the ICC has considered both incidents in the context of this match and concluded it will be taking no further action against either player,” the governing body said in a statement.The third Test between the teams starts in Ranchi on March 16 with the series level at 1-1.“Ahead of (the third Test), the match referee will bring both captains together to remind them of their responsibilities to the game,” ICC chief executive David Richardson said.
THE Dwain Jacobs show was on at the Georgetown Football Club ground as Police outclassed GFC 4-0 in the final of the Corona Beer Invitational on Sunday night.The captain led by example on a night when his team needed him the most, scoring a hat-trick to give his team the inaugural title.Coming into the night, the Police were the underdogs but they relished that title, especially in front of the GFC crowd supporting their own.Police were the more attacking team from the beginning as they forced the ball into GFC’s half and it eventually paid off when Jacobs slammed in the first from outside the area.This stunned the home crowd and sent shockwaves through those present.The match continued with several enterprising runs from the hosts but all fizzled out in the final third, leaving the Police the freedom to attack at pleasure.Dwain Jacobs was in no playful mood as he scored this goal, one of his three on the night as his side cruised past GFC 4-0They plundered their second through Jacobs again who rushed the keeper and slotted the ball over his flailing arms and into the net for the second in the 42nd minute.Police would score two more times in their triumph, Jacobs completing his third in the 45th and Kester Dundas in the 48th.With the win, Police are now $1M richer and have another title to their name.In the third-place playoff Western Tigers brushed aside Northern Rangers 2-0, thanks to strikes from Darren Benjamin 35th and Jamal Pedro 90th+ 1
Submit StumbleUpon Share As citizens of a proud nation, Italians love staying true to their traditions. And this is no different when it comes to routines around betting and gaming, according to Leadstar Media CEO and Founder Eskil Kvarnström.Despite the explosion of online gambling in so many countries around the world, data first collected by Statista (presented here by Eurispes) found that offline was still comfortably the preferred way for Italians to play for money – whatever their chosen vertical might be.According to the data, almost three in 10 Italians surveyed play for cash prizes (28%), but 18.3% of that group were offline only. Conversely, only 2% of gamblers claimed to bet exclusively online across the year, while 7.9% were active across both. New trend for Italian puntersHowever, the tide does seem to be shifting, with many Italians now opening online betting accounts and therefore also becoming eligible to claim a welcome offer. To highlight this point, data from national media agency Agimeg revealed that online spend across gambling verticals in Italy increased by 29% in January 2020 against the corresponding month of 2019 (€153m to €197.5m).This is a trend of real interest to Kvarnström, whose affiliate network includes Italian betting affiliate site BookmakerBonus.it.He also expressed his confidence in the prospects of the Italian online market, by saying: “We have always known that Italy is a large market with huge potential, despite having a large number of players who still prefer to undertake their betting offline. We’re confident that eventually we will see an even bigger curve in the trends towards online betting.”Online betting yes, but mainly on mobile phonesPlayers well acquainted with online betting have often cited the simplicity and speed in which you can find and place bets from your mobile device in real-time as a major advantage. This is something that Leadstar Media has identified as a key factor to success in Italy and optimised its site for mobile use accordingly. As of today, 80% of users on BookmakerBonus.it are visiting the site using their mobile phone. The hope, for Kvarnström at least, is that those players that have been converted to betting with online platforms in the last weeks will continue to do so after everything has settled down and the country returns to business as usual. Benefits of online betting“Online betting has in fact a number of distinct advantages when compared to betting offline in the local shops,” says Kvarnström. “Obviously we don’t expect online betting to replace the social factors of congregating and discussing the potential outcomes of games that so many Italian players have become accustomed to over the years. “However, we’re hoping many will begin to appreciate the distinct advantages that online betting can offer such as cashout, which are simply not available in brick-and-mortar shops.”Cashout remains an unknown feature for most Italian punters. Just over a year ago, we learned from Agimeg that the country’s ban on the concept would be lifted on a trial basis. However, this period was soon closed, alongside Asian handicap multiples, after Giovanni Tria was forced out of government last September.Despite this regulatory U-turn, Kvarnström explained that bookmakers offering an exchange platform, some of which you can find referrals for through BookmakerBonus.it, are allowed to provide the cashout feature to their customers.Kvarnström concluded: “So besides being an established betting market for many years, Italy is still in the transitional stages when it comes to making the switch towards online betting and we want to help our customers to understand the numerous benefits by providing them with informative content on our site.” Share CT Gaming bolsters Italian profile with The Betting Coach August 27, 2020 TVBET passes GLI test for five live games in Malta and Italy August 25, 2020 Successful summer leaves Leadstar positive over industry’s recovery August 18, 2020 Related Articles
AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisAlpena — The Alpena County Adult Drug Court program received a major boost from the United States Bureau of Justice Assistance.A $500,000 grant was awarded to the court which helps a select group of substance abusers strive toward a path to sobriety by monitoring and constant check-ins with those participants. The program lost funding last year after failing to secure an enhancement program. The new funding will help address a majority of issues facing this program.“We’re going to hire more employees, more case managers, and more compliance officers,” said Judge Tom LaCross. “1:1, we’ll be able to serve people that we have in drug court better and then we’ll be able to take on more people, more participants in drug court.”The program has been successful in helping reduce addiction problems in people and guiding them towards a new chapter in life.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: 88th District Court, Alcohol Addiction, alpena, alpena county, Alpena County Adult Drug Court Program, Drug Addiction, Drug Court, Judge LaCross, Sobriety, Tom LaCross, United States Bureau of Justice AssistanceContinue ReadingPrevious Downtown business owner added to the DDA boardNext How overloaded school bags lead to functional scoliosis
LOS ANGELES >> There are no ties in baseball, only subtle hints to wrap things up after the ninth inning has ended.For the Dodgers, the hints weren’t very subtle Wednesday in a 6-4 loss to the Baltimore Orioles. Pitcher Kenta Maeda pinch ran in the eighth inning. Another pitcher, Scott Kazmir, pinch hit in the 13th inning. Organist Dieter Ruehle played Take Me Out To The Ballgame during the seventh-inning stretch and again during the 14th-inning stretch.By the time manager Dave Roberts was ejected for arguing a low strike called by umpire Pat Hoberg in the 14th inning, there were almost as many security guards lining the field than fans in the front row.Jonathan Schoop’s two-run double off Chris Hatcher in the top of the 14th provided the final score. Hatcher was also forced to bat for himself with the bases loaded in the bottom of the inning because the Dodgers had long since run out of position players. Hatcher, a former catcher, grounded out against Orioles closer Zach Britton to end the game. Generally speaking, the pitchers got the better of the competition.The two teams combined for 36 strikeouts, breaking a 20-year-old Dodger Stadium record. The “Strikeout Meter” on the left field scoreboard ran out of room for “K”s. The Dodgers went 1 for 14 with runners in scoring position, the Orioles 2 for 11.The haze of a 5-hour, 26-minute loss obscured a couple noteworthy milestones. Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley had six hits, a new career high in his 1,660th career game. And rookie shortstop Corey Seager extended his hitting streak to 19 games with a double.Mark Trumbo hit two solo home runs, his major-league leading 25th and 26th of the season. He also scored the Orioles’ first run after hustling out a popup that Seager lost in the afternoon sun. That was at 12:32 p.m., when there were no shadows on the field.Justin Turner’s home run in the first inning off Kevin Gausman gave the Dodgers a 2-0 lead. The Orioles scored single runs in the second, third and fourth innings to pull ahead 3-2.Luck turned in the Dodgers’ favor in the fifth inning when Adrian Gonzalez dumped a weak hit into shallow center field in front of a charging Adam Jones. Seager and Utley both scored, giving the Dodgers a 4-3 lead and giving Gonzalez seven RBIs in six July games.But Trumbo tied the game, 4-4, in the top of the sixth inning with a home run off reliever Casey Fien. The former Angel has five multi-homer games this season.Norris pitched five innings and left in line for his second win in as many starts since he was acquired from the Atlanta Braves. The right-hander, who pitched for the Orioles from 2013-15, gave up three earned runs on six hits and two walks. He struck out five.The Dodgers blew a fantastic chance to take the lead in the seventh inning. With Dylan Bundy pitching for the Orioles, a single by Utley and a double by Seager put runners at second and third base with none out. But Bundy came back to strike out Turner, Trayce Thompson and Howie Kendrick, sandwiched around an intentional walk to Adrian Gonzalez.Again in the eighth inning, the Dodgers loaded the bases on an A.J. Ellis walk, a double by Utley and an intentional walk to Seager. Orioles pitcher Brad Brach then got Turner to pop up, ending the inning.The Orioles tried to force the issue in the 13th inning when pinch hitter Joey Rickard singled with one out. Jones then lined a single into the right-field corner and Rickard was cut down at home plate on a relay throw from Yasiel Puig to Utley.The Dodgers have already played a longer game this year, a 17-inning win in San Diego on May 22. That game ended similarly, when the team with the most tired pitcher on the mound lost. It just happened to be the Padres; the Dodgers won, 9-5.This time it was the Dodgers. Hatcher, who’d thrown two scoreless innings less than 24 hours earlier, was the sacrificial lamb. Six Dodgers played all 14 innings. They felt it, too.“You’d like to think physically, but sometimes it’s mental at the same time,” Seager said. “To be locked in for that long, it’s challenging for sure.” “It’s an extra-inning baseball game,” a somber Hatcher said. “They happen.”And when they happen, there are consequences. The Dodgers already needed to make a roster move to make room for pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu, who makes his first start of the season Thursday. They’ll re-consider that move after eight relievers threw 186 pitches in relief of starter Bud Norris on Wednesday. Pedro Baez was the Dodgers’ only reliever who didn’t appear Wednesday and he’d pitched the first two games of the series.Ryu maxed out at 84 pitches in eight minor league rehab games, so anything more than a five-inning start against the San Diego Padres will be considered a nice bonus.“This is definitely not a turn-key game,” Roberts said. “There’s a lot of stress in there, I think, for everyone. Our guys competed. It was a long one.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
Notre Dame typically sells fewer season tickets than other football programs with sold-out stadiums. It withholds roughly 50 percent of its house for those who enter a ticket lottery for individual games. As they consider how many fans could safely attend football games in this circumstance, that allows ND to consider whether to stop at the season-ticket base or to add a certain percentage of lottery winners to the crowd.He said ND is addressing a number of items both for the gameday visitor experience (concessions, entry/egress, whether to have the traditional walk by the team to the stadium) and for student athletes (locker room space, practice approach, weight room capacity and maintenance).“I think tailgating creates a much more challenging dynamic to control,” Swarbrick said, “to establish some regulations around and have it be the safest environment you can.” The reopening of America is happening at a different pace in different states, and the return to college athletics could follow the same disparate course. This means it is possible teams and athletes in states that resume activity earlier could gain a competitive advantage over others that are on a less aggressive schedule.And if that happens to disadvantage Notre Dame? Deal with it, athletic director Jack Swarbrick has told his coaches. “I’m not concerned about competitive advantage or disadvantage,” Swarbrick told reporters on a Zoom conference Tuesday afternoon. “I accepted long ago in this pandemic that’s a natural consequence, and I have told our coaches over and over again: Do not focus on that issue. Focus on health; your health, your staff’s health and, most important, the health of our students. And we’ll go from there. Whatever the consequences are, they are.“There will be great disparities that are inevitable in this. The NCAA will do what it can, I think, to regulate them. But you’re still going to have circumstances where schools aren’t open, and others are. Or states that haven’t reopened, and some have.”Like all athletic administrators, all college administrators, Swarbrick is planning for a 2020-21 academic year whose very existence, in a traditional sense, is uncertain. Many university presidents have expressed an intent to reopen their campuses on schedule, but still they recognize that may not be prudent.MORE: How the coronavirus pandemic might change sports (and us)If ND does choose to open campus for the fall term — and Swarbrick stressed there is “an enormous desire to get back on campus” for a residential university such as Notre Dame, subject to safety considerations for students and staff — it is possible athletes could return to residence before the student body as a whole.“We’ve all agreed at least six — and more likely seven — weeks would be required to safely prepare the football team,” Swarbrick said. “So, in the interest of safety there, just as with the decision to open the dorms, you have to figure out a way to assemble those students, to put them in an environment that’s safe … and to prepare them for the season.”Swarbrick and other ADs are planning for many contingencies, including the possibility of football teams following different timeframes in sort of a “patchwork” season.“One of the things that’s impressed me the most during this extraordinary period of time has been the level of collegiality and collaboration,” Swarbrick said. “I get to interact with the commissioners on a regular basis … and I can’t say enough the extent to which they are working together, spending time together, communicating with each other. And I think that’s the most important thing. It gives us a chance to come up with an overarching policy and ability to start together.“Having said that, I think we all recognize there’s a significant chance that may not be possible, either because states or individual colleges and universities take different approaches. We just have to take the time to figure that out as we go. There are a host of questions that become a byproduct of that: How many games do you need to have in a regular season to have a playoff? What might a re-engineered schedule do to the postseason and the bowl games? What about records, what about Heisman Trophies? Does a team whose school decides it can’t participate in a position where it’s credited with a forfeit? I sure hope not.”Other elements Swarbrick addressed in the 30-plus minutes he spent with reporters:Liability is a concern relative to opening to fans, but it’s not unique to sports or college sports. “We share that concern, and that risk, with every enterprise that opens: with every restaurant, with every hotel, with every theme park, with every movie theater,” Swarbrick said. “I think all we can do is make sure we are complying with the best standard available to us, rely on the experience and expertise of the scientific and medical communities … We can’t let the threat of that risk fundamentally change the experience of our students.”Negotiations with longtime coach Brian Kelly on a contract extension have continued “for a long time and, as soon as we get the opportunity to not meet by Zoom, I look forward to hopefully making an announcement about it.
A tropical wave that is approaching Florida from the southeast is forecast to bring gusty winds, widespread rainfall of six to eight inches in many areas of our region, and potential flooding beginning Friday and lasting through the weekend.Meteorologists do not expect the system to develop into a tropical depression or storm.Still, South Florida Water Management District officials announced on Wednesday that they were lowering canals in anticipation of the heavy rain. They also asked residents to make sure storm drains are cleared of any debris.Rain chances for Friday are up to 70 percent, with thunderstorms likely. There is an 80 percent chance of rain during Saturday, diminishing to 50 percent in the evening. Lightning will also be a concern through the weekend, according to forecasters. A statement from the National Weather Service reads, “We’ll need to keep an eye on this given the possibility of rotating storms producing a tornado or waterspout. That said, the primary hazard associated with the tropical wave still appears to be heavy rainfall with attending risk for localized flooding.”In addition, a new moon is increasing the threat of flooding, due to a gravitational pull that could create above average tides. High tides, when combined with rain, could flood coastal streets. High tides are expected on Friday at 9:34 a.m. and 9:30 p.m.Meanwhile, a tropical wave building in the far Atlantic now has a 70 percent chance of developing over the next five days, as it continues to move west-northwest at around 15 mph. It was located about 1,000 miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands on Thursday, with disorganized showers and thunderstorms. It is expected to form into a tropical depression over the weekend, as it moves into a more favorable environment. If that happens, the system would be named Chantal.

She said the man told her he had a gun but she surmised it probably wasn’t real and in any case “he won’t have time to draw it” before she went into action.After subduing the assailant she discovered the weapon was in fact a cardboard replica of a pistol.Viana posted images of the would-be robber, looking dejected and bruised, with blood on his sleeveless shirt and on a hand, as she kept his arm in a “kimura-like position” until the police arrived.“Since he took the punches very quickly, I think he was scared,” she told the site.She said that, after the suspect’s processing by police and treatment for his injuries, she went home and made dinner. Her hands hurt a bit the next day, but nothing serious and she was otherwise unharmed.Muggings are a constant risk in Rio and other cities in Brazil. The country’s new president, Jair Bolsonaro, was elected on promises to crack down on crime.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next View comments Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
