Cricket News Smriti Mandhana 83 helps India thrash Australia in ICC Women’s World T20

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Smriti Mandhana’s magnificent 83 and contributions from India’s spinners gave India a thumping 48-run win over Australia in the final Group B game of the ICC Women’s World T20 in Providence, Guyana. With this win, India have topped the group and will face the loser of the West Indies vs England game. This was India’s first-ever win against Australia in this tournament and this will give them plenty of momentum as they seek to win the title for the first time. Mandhana, who had struggled earlier in the tournament, put on her best show against her favourite opponents and that set the base for India to achieve their highest total in Twenty20 Internationals against the three-time World T20 champions.Read More |ICC Women’s World T20 witnesses an entry into the million clubOpting to bat, India lost Taniya Bhatia (2) but after a slow start, Mandhana opened the shackles with a straight-driven boundary off Megan Schutt in the fourth over. However, the left-hander went after Sophie Molineux by launching her over long on for a six and then late-cutting a short ball past backward point. Mandhana continued to find the boundary by launching Schutt over long on for her second six and then cracking a cut shot to the deep backward point fence. With 34 runs coming off three overs, India had gotten momentum.Read More | ‘Sensible decisions key for Indian team’s success in Australia’After losing Jemimah Rodrigues (6) cheaply, Mandhana found great support in skipper Harmanpreet Kaur and the duo continued to attack. Harmanpreet got going with a six over deep midwicket off Molineux and Mandhana reached her fifty off 31 balls by sweeping Ashleigh Gardner to the fine leg fence. Harmanpreet continued to pepper the boundary and the 68-run stand put India on course for a big total.However, Australia fought back with quick wickets towards the end, including Harmanpreet for an aggressive 43. In the 15th over, Mandhana was adjudged LBW and on Veda Krishnamurthy’s insistence, she took the review and replays showed the ball was pitching outside the line of leg stump. This boosted Mandhana and she went past 1000 runs in Twenty20 Internationals. India finished on 167/8 and on a pitch assisting the spinners, Harmanpreet’s side held the upper hand.Australia struggleIn response, Australia were dealt a body blow before the start of their chase as wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy was injured. In the 19th over of the innings, Healy had a nasty collision with Schutt and she injured her shoulder in the process.Read More | Jasprit Bumrah will be X-factor for India in Australia: Damien FlemingAustralia never got going as India’s spinners worked their charm on a slow, low Providence wicket. Anuja Patil, Deepti Sharma, Radha Yadav and Poonam Yadav all worked their magic to wreck the Australian chase. Deepti Sharma started off with a bang by taking two wickets. Poonam and Radha combined in tandem in the middle overs to ensure Australia did not get away.Ellyse Perry kept Australia in the hunt with an aggressive 39 but Patil ran through the lower order to finish with 3/15 as India secured a famous win. Speaking in the post-match presser, captain Harmanpreet said with such good players in the side, the team had to put in a solid performance.Mandhana, who was named player of the match, was relieved that she could finally convert her start into a big score and thanked her partner Veda Krishnamurthy for her presence of mind. “First three matches I got starts but couldn’t convert it. So, I just wanted to score big today. Veda insisted on the review, and thanks to her we got 20-30 runs extra,” Mandhana said. last_img read more


first_imgWhile reviewing the verdict from the Supreme Court last Friday that sent both Giwa and Pinnick to the lower court for retrial, the NFF board led by Pinnick said that that it had taken note of the decision of the Supreme Court to refer back to the Federal High Court, and start afresh a case brought before the apex court by two football stakeholders against the NFF leadership.The statement from the NFF reads: “NFF 1st Vice President/Chairman, Legal Committee, Barrister Seyi Akinwunmi, said the NFF Board appreciated the reasoning of the apex court in refusing the prayers of the appellants, which if granted would have accorded them some kind of legitimacy, against the backdrop of an ongoing administration of Nigerian Football which is at the cusp of taking Nigeria to the world’s greatest football event, the World Cup.“He disclosed that the NFF’s lawyers are confidently prepared to argue the case afresh and look forward to finally putting the matter to rest, and to prove to the world that Nigerian football can continue to be run in its orderly manner.“He referred to the case as a mere distraction for Nigerian football which ought not to have been instituted in the first place given the convention for resolution of football disputes.“The 1st Vice President said: “We are law-abiding citizens of this great country, and we have no qualms about starting the case afresh. The Supreme Court did the right thing in the circumstances, and while we must be careful not to discuss matters which are subjudice, we must note that the appellants have within the norms in sporting disputes, actually exhausted all legitimate channels in this matter, including arguing their position, and failing, at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.Meanwhile, the bans imposed on Chris Giwa by the world football governing body FIFA and continental body CAF remain in place.The CAF letter conveying the world-wide ban on Giwa was dated February 6, 2017 and signed by the Deputy Secretary to the Disciplinary Committee extended the ban imposed by the Nigeria Football Federation and the Confederation of African Football to a worldwide status.FIFA also handed down the same punishment to four other officials, who were involved in the NFF leadership tussle.The letter read, “FIFA can confirm  the worldwide extension of sanctions imposed by the Nigerian Football Federation’s (NFF) Disciplinary Committee on 12 May 2016 against the officials Christopher Giwa, Muazu Suleyman, Yahaya Adama, Sani Fema and Johnson Effiong for breaches of the NFF Statutes and the FIFA Code of Ethics.“In accordance with art. 136 ff of the FIFA Disciplinary Code, the Chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee has decided to extend the five-year ban from taking part in any kind of football-related activity imposed on the five officials to have worldwide effect.“The relevant member association as well as CAF have been duly notified of the chairman’s decision.”The FIFA sanction excludes him from all football matters May 11, 2021.Giwa was first banned by the NFF in May 2016, after they approached a civil court over the leadership tussle – an action that is against the federation’s statutes.This five-year sanction was later extended by CAF.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram *FIFA: Giwa remains banned from all football activitiesBy Femi SolajaThe board of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), insisted yesterday that Friday’s verdict by the Supreme Court on the lingering leadership tussle between Chris Giwa and Amaju Pinnick was no threat to the country’s participation at the World Cup next June.last_img read more

Gridiron: Gridiron nation shows no mercy

first_imgThe Most Disappointing Team AwardAmidst a myriad of worthy candidates — South Florida, Wisconsin and Illinois come to mind — the award has to go to Clemson. The Tigers started off the year ranked No. 9 before losing in spectacular fashion to Alabama. In the infinitely winnable ACC, Clemson failed to break .500 in conference, and even more impressively, with a wealth of talent at the “skill” positions Clemson scored 10 points or less six times. Completing the fall from grace, Clemson cut the cord with head coach Tommy Bowden despite signing him to an extension in the offseason. Expectations have been lowered so far that late season wins over Duke and Virginia earned interim head coach Dabo Swinney the permanent position. The Heisman Memorial Trophy Award While I have yet to be awarded a vote by the Heisman committee, at Gridiron we would give the award to Colt McCoy, quarterback of Texas. This season, McCoy accounted for 42 total TDs and 4,021 yards, while completing 77.6 percent of his passes. He also led the Longhorns to victory over three top 10 opponents before falling to Texas Tech on a last-second pass. While rival quarterback Sam Bradford deserves recognition, Bradford also had the benefit of two 1,000 yard rushers, whereas McCoy has none. Besides, McCoy needs something to ease the pain of yet another BCS letdown. The “best regular season” in all of sports will come to an end this weekend, as college football plays its final games of the semester.Which means that after a few Big East matches and the conference championships, we have a month to brace ourselves for the worst postseason in all of sports.Funny how those two go hand in hand.While it would be easy to take shots at the BCS and write a column pointing out the plethora of flaws in college football, we at Gridiron Nation prefer to think positive. After all, besides Texas getting screwed out of the national championship, the Mountain West Conference passing the Big East in overall quality and Ohio State losing every big game of the past three years, some good things did happen this season.With that in mind, we give you the most prestigious 2008 Gridiron Nation Awards. The Recruit Everyone Missed Out On AwardAnd the winner is Jacquizz Rodgers, freshman running back for Oregon State. The diminutive Texas native burst onto the scene when he shredded USC, handing the Trojans their only loss of the season. Rodgers set a Texas state record for touchdowns in high school with 136 and he rushed for 2,902 yards his senior year, earning him the AP player of the year award in Texas. Somehow, Oregon State landed the super freshman over programs such as Texas, Texas Tech and Oklahoma. Oh wait, it is because Rodgers is only listed at 5 feet 7 inches. I know recruiting is an imperfect process, but once again, big schools overvalue potential over production. Seeing as Texas’ leading rusher this season is their quarterback, I’m betting the Longhorns would like a do-over where Rodgers is concerned. The Did Just Enough To Not Get Fired AwardApparently the award goes to Charlie Weis. Notre Dame announced Wednesday that Weis will indeed be back for another season, despite totaling a mere nine wins the past two seasons. Riding the strength of three top 10 recruiting classes, Weis led the Fighting Irish to a 6-6 record and a potential bowl berth. Notre Dame’s most impressive win came over the 7-4 Navy, and the Fighting Irish scored less than 10 points in four games. Clearly, the man deserves another chance. The Schadenfreude AwardOne team’s misfortune is the rest of the nation’s pleasure. Michigan’s fall from grace this year was spectacular on every level. Here are just a few of the Wolverine’s accomplishments: Michigan lost to a MAC team for the first time in their history. Rich Rodriguez debuted by snapping the Wolverines 33-year bowl streak. And of course, Michigan ended the season at 3-9 losing to Ohio State by 35 points. All of this happened while the rest of the nation sat back and laughed. Best Reason To Watch College Football AwardWith a lack of stunning rivalry games, crazy upsets or surprise national title contenders, this award has to go to the Big XII South division. This division boasts three top 10 teams in Oklahoma, Texas and Texas Tech, along with another top 20 team in Oklahoma State. It seemed like every week a Big XII shootout was taking the headlines, and almost every legit Heisman candidate comes from this conference. Most importantly though, with a three-way tie between the aforementioned Big Three at the top of the division, more evidence was provided that the BCS is completely broken. Hopefully, if enough big programs complain about the BCS (See: Texas and USC), we will eventually get a true postseason for college football.last_img read more

Trojans look to maintain strong play over weekend

first_imgThe USC men’s tennis team hopes to keep its momentum swinging in the right direction as it battles No. 3 Texas on Friday and No. 27 Louisville on Saturday.USC will also travel to Florida next week to take on No. 15 Florida and No. 36 Florida State.The Trojans and Longhorns last met more than a year ago, when the then-No. 1 Trojans fell to then-No. 8 Texas in the quarterfinals of the ITA National Team Indoor Championships last year.Doubles play was the thorn in the Trojans’ side and they were ultimately not able to bring it back in singles play, losing 4-2.“[They have] very good doubles teams, so it will be a really good win,” said senior Jaak Poldma. “It will be tough though. I think our singles will be stronger on the top courts.”Doubles has been a sore spot all season for the Trojans, who would like to avoid repeat of last year.Lately, however, the Trojans have begun to look stronger and more consistent, especially during last week’s 5-2 win against UCLA.“[It has] a lot to do with injury,” Poldma said. “We tried a few different lineups when some of the guys were out and found what works.”Injuries have still been an issue for the Trojans, with senior Peter Lucassen sidelined with a stress fracture.Earlier this season freshmen Michael Grant and Ray Sarmiento were out, and sophomore J.T. Sundling recently hurt his knee.“We’re a good team as a whole, so whenever we’re all playing it’s good,” Poldma said. “But when we’re injured it’s not so good. Still, I think that when we are healthy we’re the favorites.”Singles has been a strong spot for USC, with dominant performances from the top four seeds, juniors Steve Johnson and Daniel Nguyen, Poldma and Sarmiento. Johnson competed as a wildcard entry in the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells earlier this week.“Steve has been unbelievable,” Poldma said. “He just lost to a top player. I haven’t lost a set. Daniel is ranked in the top 20, and Raymond hasn’t lost a match since he had to forfeit [due to injury].”First serve against Texas is at 3 p.m. at Marks Stadium. The Trojans then take on Louisville on Saturday.The teams met earlier this season in Seattle at this year’s ITA Indoor Championships where USC beat the Cardinal in a 4-0 shutout.Saturday’s matchup begins at noon.last_img read more

He made the world a better place. RIP mate,” McIlroy tweeted.Second-ranked Thomas, who opened with a par, comes off a victory at last week’s WGC Bridgestone Invitational. He could become the first player since McIlroy in 2014 to make the PGA his second win in back-to-back weeks and join Woods as the only men since 1937 to win consecutive PGAs.“We lost a great one today. RIP, Jarrod,” Thomas tweeted. “We will all be thinking about him and his family this week.”Lyle, whose best US PGA Tour finish was a share of fourth in 2012 at Riviera, played in two major tournaments, sharing 48th at the 2008 US Open and missing the cut at the 2006 British Open.“Incredibly sad news about Jarrod Lyle,” tweeted British Open champion Francesco Molinari of Italy. “Tough times for everyone on tour losing someone so special.”Molinari was set for an afternoon start over the 7,316-yard, par-70 layout alongside this year’s other two major winners – Americans Patrick Reed from the Masters and Brooks Koepka from the US Open.“You were and always will be a fighter and will be missed by so many people. Rest In Peace Jarrod,” Reed tweeted.Lyle played in 121 PGA events from 2006 to 2016 and won two developmental Tour events. He was diagnosed with leukemia as a youth and twice thought he had beaten cancer only to have it return last year.“Deeply saddened to hear about the passing of my friend Jarrod Lyle,” tweeted world number 10 Jason Day. “Jarrod will forever be an inspiration to us all.”Australian Day, the 2015 PGA Championship winner, makes a morning back-nine start with five-time major winner Phil Mickelson and 2011 PGA winner Keegan Bradley.Day opened with three pars while 48-year-old left-hander Mickelson, hoping to qualify on points for a 12th consecutive US Ryder Cup squad, sank a 23-foot birdie putt at the par-4 11th only to bogey 12, three-putting from 12 feet.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Tiger Woods stumbled badly at the start while Rory McIlroy opened bogey-birdie in Thursday’s first round of the 100th PGA Championship, the superstar pairing struggling early in the year’s final major showdown.McIlroy, Woods and defending champion Justin Thomas began off the 10th tee at Bellerive Country Club with thousands of spectators lining the fairway, standing 10 deep in spots just to catch a glimpse of the master shotmakers.Woods, making a comeback after spinal fusion surgery, punched out of the right rough, reached the edge of the green in three and sank a nervy five-foot putt for bogey.last_img read more

Marketing responsibly and using AI to unlock esports’ potential

first_img Share GG.Bet scores ESL Counter-Strike & Dota 2 global partnerships July 15, 2020 Submit StumbleUpon Why reliability of service is an integral part of TVBET’s strategy August 6, 2020 Share Winning Post: UK racing must put its best foot forward … July 20, 2020 Related Articles Businesses the world over are facing unprecedented challenges and our industry is no different, writes Digitain Head of Sales Simon Westbury. Heading into a summer when an eagerly anticipated calendar of live sporting fixtures has been derailed, operators and suppliers alike are searching frantically for alternatives. Despite the extensive disruption to live sport, there remains a whole host of options available for players looking to get involved. Providing them with a range of responsible alternatives will be critical to our industry’s perseverance through these challenging times. This is especially the case for esports. With exponential year-on-year growth already, its rise has clearly been long in the making and has now been dramatically accelerated by the current crisis. Indeed, alternative markets are hugely important. For operators, however, they are of limited use without the right tools to introduce them to customers. The biggest challenge this summer will not be the wealth of content you offer (although that’s important) – but how you offer it to the right players. Key here will be predictive AI-based modelling. Players want to know what else is out there, and when it comes to direct marketing, they need to be presented with the right options. The biggest winners in the months ahead (from a B2B perspective), are the ones that already have the CRM tools in place to provide for the ‘Netflix style’ AI tools that can deliver an alternative offering in line with the player’s demand for entertainment.Having a toolkit that elevates the customer experience should have been at the top of every operators’ ICE shopping list, and those who didn’t take advantage of the latest tech are certainly missing out now.  In principle, AI-based CRM harnesses deep data and analytics to ensure that gaming operators are able to maintain, not to mention grow, their market share and build customer lifetime value – an especially valuable proposition at a time like this. When it comes to delivery, Digitain can do this better than anyone. The foundation of our proprietary technology is unrivalled machine learning based modelling capabilities. We can ensure that when any given customer logs on, they receive a bespoke offering fully tailored to their own personal preferences. Providing such a high level of customisation ensures that users are introduced to a raft of new betting markets in line with their profile – whether it be in-house skill games, virtuals or esports – driving increased engagement and boosting incremental revenue for operators. Tie that in with a gamified experience, and when merged with the right customer segmentation – you’ll be able to drive players towards desired content at key times like never before. Combined with bonus rewards, competition against other players and other social elements, and operators will have an incredibly powerful tool for the months ahead.  However, although we take immense pride in the quality of our products as well as the fantastic tools we provide to our customers, player protection always tops our priority list. As people spend more time at home, the need for our industry to act responsibly only grows stronger. Of course, we as an industry can help fill the void of sport with fun and creative ways to engage our partners’ customers, but it is imperative we do so with a principal focus on social responsibility, with revenue coming second. Online retains plenty of potential for capturing market share this summer, and done in the right way, can offer a wealth of opportunity for the brave few who are willing to get bold with their strategies. Under the watchful eye of regulators, the media and the general public, our actions during this difficult period will be remembered for a long time to come. Let’s set the kind of example that others can follow – and make sure we’re remembered for the right reasons. Responsible gaming has never been more important than it is now; and we need to make sure our collective reputation is spotless.last_img read more
