Recently, Serie A was suspended for a month in Italy, and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics is on the verge of getting postponed. Although, there hasn’t been any disruptions in the schedule of the Indian cricket team, who are welcoming South Africa tomorrow for a 3-match One Day International series. However, the players themselves have come up with a precautionary measure. The age old use of saliva to shine the ball can be a method of virus contamination, as superstar bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar considers halting the practice.Advertisement Image Courtesy: AFP/PTIThe COVID-19 virus can be transmitted through saliva, and if the team doctors suggest, the Indian bowlers may restrict the renowned method to polish the ball for reverse swing in the coming matches.Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who recently recovered from a hernia injury that he sustained back in December 2019, spoke about the virus outbreak during his practice session prior to tomorrow’s match. Although stating that the players have thought of limiting the use of saliva during the game, the pacer worries it may hamper their performance on pitch.Advertisement “We have thought about this thing but I can’t say right now we will not use saliva because if we don’t use saliva then how will we shine the ball? We will get hit and you people will say you are not bowling well” Bhuvi told reporters.However, the 30 year old didn’t neglect the ever present threat of a contamination, and suggested that the squad will follow the instructions from the team doctors.Advertisement He continued: “But it’s a valid point and let’s see we will have a team meeting today and whatever instruction we get or whatever is the best option, we will do that.”“It all depends on the team doctor and what advice he gives us,” Bhuvi added.However, there has already been 52 confirmed cases of coronavirus in India, and regarding the gigantic crowd gatherings during cricket matches in the country, there’s always a risk. Adding on it, Bhuvi stated that the team has taken every possible precaution to inhibit any chances of contamination.“You cannot say anything right now because it’s taking a dangerous situation in India. But we are taking every precaution we can take. We have a team doctor with us and he is giving us instructions about dos and don’ts. So we hope it won’t go (spread) much further,” the bowler concluded.Also read-Photo: Hardik Pandya just put on 7kgs of muscle ahead of India comeback! Advertisement
The social and economic issues faced by people in Donegal have been highlighted today while Taoiseach Leo Varadkar hosts his rural Cabinet meeting in the county. Government ministers have gathered in Oideas Gael Glencolmcille this Thursday afternoon for their final meeting before the summer recess.With Ministers travelling far from Leinster House, the event has led Donegal Deputy Pearse Doherty to put the experiences of people living and working in Donegal under the spotlight. The Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson says the rural Cabinet meetings should be “something of substance rather than for optics”.Deputy Doherty said: “Here in Donegal we know all too well of the many social and economic issues which exist here and which, for as long as any of us can remember, have plighted this region and have earned us the moniker of ‘the forgotten county’.“When we look at almost every possible metric which measures economic and social performance we here in Donegal remain an outlier.“Poverty continues to afflict the lives of ordinary people with census data having consistently identified communities across Donegal as having some of the highest levels of deprivation to found anywhere in the state.” Deputy Doherty has also raised the issue of Donegal’s lack of high-quality infrastructure, which he says is impacting prosperity in the region:“In terms of infrastructure, the county has no rail link, no motorways and survey after survey has found that homes and businesses here have access to some of the slowest download speeds in the state both in terms of mobile and fixed-line data. “Essentially, if you’re from Donegal you are much more likely to be affected by poverty, to have a lower level of educational attainment, to be unemployed or out of work, while you also have the added burden of having poorer access to basic services and supports.”The Donegal Deputy has said that “progressive policies” are needed to tackle the county’s issues.Mr Doherty said: “The people of Donegal are well known for their ‘can-do’ attitude and there is a genuine entrepreneurial spirit in the county, something which is readily seen in the many small and medium sized businesses which – in spite of a challenging business environment – continue to be successful. “It is just a pity that more isn’t being done at government level to bolster these businesses and support the badly needed employment they provide in our communities.“So while today’s meeting of the Cabinet in Donegal is to be welcomed, I remain sceptical of this government’s willingness and ability to seriously address and remedy the many economic and social issues people living here experience in their daily lives.”Donegal’s issues brought to the fore as Cabinet meets in county was last modified: July 25th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

No matter where you are right now, no matter how poorly you are doing at this moment, it is not final. It is not a life sentence. Your past does not determine your future.You are not, nor can you ever be, a loser. Losing, like failure, is an event. It is something that you do, and because this is true, it is something that you can stop doing. Thankfully, it is not something that you are. You can fail before you learn to succeed. You can lose before you learn to win. You can make poor choices before you make better choices.If what you are doing is not creating the success that you want or need, then you are simply making poor or unhealthy choices. This does not make you a loser; it makes you a person who is not making good choices. Making poor choices is not a permanent state. It isn’t even a permanent trait, even if you have managed to persist at making poor choices for most of your life.Right now, you can make different choices. Healthier choices are available to you. Those healthier choices are available to you, and to everyone else who has made poor choices, discovered that those choices made their lives infinitely more difficult, and decided to step onto a different path, one that may not reveal itself very easily, and one that will not be easy.You can choose to eliminate negative belief systems that no longer serve you or that move you further from who you want to be. At any time, you can choose to make better decisions and take the actions that you have avoided up to this point. You can determine that the trajectory of your life needs to dramatically change, and you can take the first step towards your different future. You will not be the first person to have successfully done so.Right now, there are a good number of people who write and speak about success who describe people with certain beliefs and behaviors as losers. This is unfair. It is said with a conviction and that intimates a finality, and that makes it false.Today is day one. Who will you be?
Indian cricket great Sachin Tendulkar has filed a civil lawsuit against an Australian bat manufacturer, accusing it of using his name and image to promote products and then failing to pay him $2 million in royalties.In Federal Court papers filed this month and reviewed by Reuters, Tendulkar said Sydney-based Spartan Sports International agreed in 2016 to pay him at least $1 million a year to use his image, logo and promotional services to sell Sachin by Spartan sporting goods and clothing.The retired star batsman soon went to work promoting the products, and appeared at a range of promotional events in places such as London and the Indian financial hub of Mumbai, the documents showed.However, by September 2018, Spartan had failed to make a single payment owed, Tendulkar said, and he made a formal request for payment. When none came, he ended the agreement, asking the company to stop using his name and likeness.Yet Spartan continued to do so, according to the documents.Spartan, whose legal representative was not listed on the Federal Court website, did not respond to an email request from Reuters for comment.Les Galbraith, listed by the court documents as its chief operating officer, did not respond to a private message sent to his LinkedIn page.The law firm listed as representing Tendulkar, Gilbert + Tobin, declined comment.Tendulkar’s civil claim accused the Australian company of misleading or deceptive conduct, passing off, or suggesting an official endorsement when none existed, and breach of contract. It did not say what damages were sought.advertisementTendulkar became the world’s leading run-scorer in tests and one-day internationals, with more than 34,000 runs and 100 centuries, in a 24-year career that ended in 2013.In 2012, he was made an honorary member of the Order of Australia, one of the country’s highest civil awards.The court website showed the lawsuit was filed on June 5, with the first court date in Sydney on June 26.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Shikhar Dhawan is a fighter and he will come back stronger, says Sachin TendulkarAlso Read | John Wright was more of a friend than coach, says Sourav GangulyAlso See
Leganes 1 Real Madrid 3: Casemiro inspires comeback for Zidane’s men Dom Farrell Last updated 1 year ago 03:40 22/2/2018 Getty Images Casemiro made one and scored another before Sergio Ramos wrapped up a hard-earned victory for Real Madrid at Leganes from the penalty spot. Real Madrid overcame an early blow and were made to toil after half-time for a 3-1 LaLiga win at Leganes.The victory moves Zinedine Zidane’s reigning champions up to third in the table above Valencia, although the hosts struck first as defender Unai Bustinza claimed his first senior goal.Cristiano Ronaldo was given the night off by Zidane and, with Gareth Bale starting on the bench, Casemiro assumed the unlikely role of being Madrid’s creative driving force.

Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp The Brazilian midfielder created the 11th-minute equaliser as Spain winger Lucas Vazquez continued his impressive recent form and converted a glorious winner before the half hour.Madrid shipped three goals in Sunday’s win at Real Betis but Zidane was grateful to see Sergio Ramos marshalling a more robust backline as 13th-placed Leganes probed without reward during the second period, and the Madrid captain made sure of victory by coolly dispatching a penalty in the final minute.The European champions are still seven points shy of Atletico Madrid in second and 14 behind leaders Barcelona.1 – Casemiro has both scored and assisted in a same game for Real Madrid for the first time ever in all competitions. Crucial. pic.twitter.com/meLBxRRyaN— OptaJose (@OptaJose) February 21, 2018Despite the likes of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Marcelo being out through injury, Zidane still elected to rest Ronaldo and first-choice goalkeeper Keylor Navas.Madrid made a lackadaisical start and Navas’ replacement Kiko Casilla was picking the ball out of his net in the sixth minute.Gabriel Pires flicked on a left-wing corner at the near post and, after seeing his initial attempt saved, Bustinza flung himself towards the ball, taking Theo Hernandez’s clearance on the top of his head to net an unusual diving header.Madrid’s response was impressively swift, with Casemiro intercepting a poor clearance and feeding Karim Benzema before improvising a flick from Mateo Kovacic’s pass that allowed Lucas to clip a precise finish across Ivan Cuellar.Casemiro was again at the heart of things when Madrid took a 29th-minute lead – this time providing the finishing touch himself after exchanging passes with Benzema and accepting Lucas’ assist to crown a glorious one-touch move.Madrid were comfortably on top as the half wound down, with Benzema almost heading a third from Lucas’ cross.Leganes impressively got themselves back on the front foot during the early stages of the second half – Asier Garitano’s double switch, sending on Ruben Perez and Martin Mantovani in place of Dimitrios Siovas and Gerard Gumbau, rewarded with a spirited showing.Tito slotted a pass down the Madrid left to Nabil El Zhar and Claudio Beauvue got on the end of his low cross to force a point-blank stop from Casilla.El Zhar had a penalty claim following an untidy challenge from Kovacic rejected – the infringement did appear to take place fractionally outside the area – and Madrid continued to do more work in their own half than they would have liked.Bale came on 15 minutes from time, curtailing an industrious and accomplished display from the much-maligned Benzema.The Wales international almost picked out the bottom corner after springing the offside trap, but it was Ramos who grasped the ball and made no mistake when Diego Rico bundled Kovacic to the floor. Key Opta facts: – Casemiro has both scored and assisted in a same game for Real Madrid for the first time in all competitions.- Lucas Vazquez is the player with most assists in LaLiga in 2018 (five), alongside Lionel Messi.- Only Cristiano Ronaldo (10 goals and 2 assists) has been involved in more goals for Real Madrid than Lucas Vazquez (4 goals, 6 assists) in 2018 in all competitions.- Real Madrid have taken more penalties than any other LaLiga side this season in all competitions (12, 11 scored).- Sergio Ramos has scored in three consecutive LaLiga away games (three goals) for the second time, the first since September-Octtober 2007.- Real Madrid conceded their fastest goal in LaLiga this season (five minutes and four seconds). read more
Transfers ‘Kane must leave Spurs to win trophies’ – Villas-Boas fuels Real Madrid transfer talk Chris Burton 18:08 27/2/2018 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Images Transfers Real Madrid Tottenham Hotspur Primera División Premier League Harry Kane The Tottenham striker is enjoying his football and performing at the peak of his powers in England, but has been told he needs a move to reach the top Harry Kane will need to leave Tottenham if he has “a hunger for trophies and notoriety”, says Andre Villas-Boas.The 24-year-old has forged a reputation as one of the most fearsome strikers in world football after stepping out of Spurs’ academy system and earning a regular senior role.He has, however, been unable to collect any major silverware as yet, with individual prizes such as two Premier League Golden Boots representing the peak of his award-winning exploits.

Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp In order for that to change, it may be that he needs to head elsewhere, with former Spurs boss Villas-Boas – who loaned Kane out to Norwich and Leicester during his time in north London – fuelling speculation that a big-money switch to Real Madrid could be on the cards at some stage.The Portuguese said at the Laureus World Sports Awards: “It depends on Harry and his ambitions for the future and how he sees his career going forward.“If he has a hunger for trophies and for notoriety he would have to leave Spurs, if he has no hunger for that, but [wants] recognition and stability, he would stay at Spurs.“Spurs are in that breakout moment of becoming a great football team – the [new] stadium, infrastructure, training ground is there, the team is building up, very well managed.“The trophy cabinet is still what is missing for this great club. That is in the end what footballers chase – glory, winning.“I think for Harry, one or two more years at Spurs wouldn’t be bad and then see how the club develops.“With the new stadium coming through I also think that Spurs should have that margin from him.”Kane has previously moved to commit his future to Tottenham, with the home-grown star happy in his current surroundings.He told German publication Bild when quizzed on the exit talk: “My goal is to play my entire career only for Tottenham.“We have a fantastic team, a great coach, a professional training centre and we’re getting a new stadium. At the moment, everything suits me here and I’m happy.”Spurs will, however, have to prove that they can match his ambition if a player who is still just 24 years of age is to avoid seeing his head turned by mounting interest from afar.
Paris Saint-Germain 3 Marseille 0: Di Maria at the double as holders put Neymar injury aside Nicholas McGee Last updated 1 year ago 06:02 1/3/2018 AFP Hit by the news of Neymar’s impending surgery on Wednesday, PSG cruised into the last four of the Coupe de France by beating Marseille. Paris Saint-Germain put the disappointment of Neymar’s foot surgery to one side to thump rivals Marseille 3-0 and reach the semi-finals of the Coupe de France.The Ligue 1 leaders announced on Wednesday that the world’s most expensive player will miss next week’s second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie with Real Madrid, which they trail 3-1, after the decision was made for him to have surgery on a cracked metatarsal.While Neymar’s prolonged absence may prove fatal to their Champions League hopes, PSG reaffirmed that it will have little impact on their domestic success as Angel Di Maria’s double saw them into a fourth successive Coupe de France semi-final.

Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Di Maria settled the contest with a pair of deflected strikes, the first a vicious shot from outside the box, either side of half-time.Deserved gloss to the scoreline was added courtesy of a wonderful team move finished off by Edinson Cavani, as Marseille again suffered at PSG’s hands having lost by the same scoreline in the weekend’s Ligue 1 meeting, where Neymar suffered his injury.The win keeps PSG firmly on course for a domestic treble and they will be one of just two top-flight teams in the last four after shock triumphs for third-tier Chambly and Les Herbiers, while a free-flowing second-half showing will perhaps give Unai Emery added hope they can fight back against Madrid even without their world-record signing.6 – Angel Di Maria has scored six goals in his last four starts with @PSG_English in all competitions. Revitalized.— OptaJean (@OptaJean) February 28, 2018PSG started very brightly and, after Yuri Berchiche had an effort beaten away by Steve Mandanda, Cavani wasted a gilt-edged chance to give them the lead.The Uruguay international met Di Maria’s pull back after the Argentina winger was sent clear down the left, but he only succeeded in fizzing a shot over the bar.Aymen Abdennour was then fortunate not to concede a penalty when the Marseille centre-back appeared to handle in the area.Most of the pressing was unsurprisingly done by PSG, but Marseille remained dangerous on the counter-attack and Florian Thauvin curled an effort well over the crossbar.Di Maria then showed Thauvin how it should be done as he bent one towards goal from the edge of the area, only to be denied by a brilliant diving save from Mandanda.But Mandanda could not replicate the same heroics on the stroke of half-time, the Marseille goalkeeper beaten as Di Maria unleashed a fierce half-volley that took a slight deflection off Adil Rami and flew into the bottom-left corner.Javier Pastore replaced Kylian Mbappe ahead of the restart and three minutes into the second half Di Maria effectively put the tie to bed – but in far less spectacular fashion.Marseille failed to deal with Yuri’s cross from the left, which eventually fell to Di Maria, and his side-foot effort deflected off Hiroki Saki and under Mandanda.Di Maria then lashed narrowly wide from long range and Julian Draxler went agonisingly close to scoring one of the goals of the season as his bicycle kick from Marco Verratti’s lofted pass was only just off target.A stunning reflex save saw Mandanda keep out Pastore’s diving header, but the final flourish came in style as Draxler nodded a Verratti chip down for Cavani to fire into the bottom-right corner in an illustration of the kind of football they will need to produce to deliver a Champions League turnaround next week.FULL TIME: See you in the @coupedefrance semifinal ! #AllezParis! #PSGOM pic.twitter.com/g7u73AeC8b— PSG English (@PSG_English) February 28, 2018 read more
Manchester United ‘Disappointing’ Alexis advised by Neville on how to get Man Utd firing Chris Burton Last updated 1 year ago 15:43 10/3/2018 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(2) Getty Images Manchester United A. Sánchez Manchester United v Liverpool Liverpool Premier League The ex-Red Devils defender admits the Chilean has not made the expected impact at Old Trafford, but has a chance to prove himself against Liverpool Alexis Sanchez “has been disappointing” for Manchester United, admits Gary Neville, with the Chilean yet to make the expected impact.Jose Mourinho has conceded that a January arrival from Arsenal has struggled to produce his best for the Red Devils, with it possible that his true colours may not be seen until “next season”.United could really do with him delivering before then, with there top-four places and a Champions League crown to challenge for this term.

Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Neville believes it is on Sanchez and Mourinho to find a solution which allows both to prosper, with a crunch clash against arch-rivals Liverpool providing the perfect opportunity to get things right.The former United defender told Sky Sports: “Yes, he has been disappointing since he arrived, but the thing for me with Alexis Sanchez is that he’s got to play more advanced.“Liverpool will want to see him in deeper areas rather than getting in behind Trent Alexander-Arnold.“The young lad did really well at Old Trafford but playing against Anthony Martial or Sanchez he will find the game more difficult if they are making runs in behind.“I would if I was playing and so would any other defender, so he has to be tested, as will Andrew Robertson.“He has to receive balls in advanced areas and I’d like to see him close to Romelu Lukaku and even making runs in behind him.”Sanchez has managed just one goal in eight appearances for United so far and no assists.He has faced accusations of destabilising the Red Devils, with positional problems similar to Paul Pogba being endured.Mourinho is yet to find the best tactical system to incorporate the 29-year-old, with others – such as Marcus Rashford – being shunted out of the side to make way for a high-profile addition.A meeting with Liverpool presents a timely occasion for Sanchez to start proving his worth, as United head into a heavyweight fixture perched just two points clear of their old adversaries in the Premier League table.
