Powered by Firework On Friday, Team India defeated New Zealand by seven wickets in the second T20I at Eden Park to level the three-match series 1-1. The visitors chased down the 159-run target with seven balls to spare. With the win, the Men in Blue surpassed Pakistan to become the T20I side to complete the most successful run chases in the format.Advertisement India have managed to pull off a total of 37 wins while chasing in 56 T20I matches since their debut in 2006 in the format. They lost 17, while two ended in a draw. India hence have managed to register a win/loss ratio of 2.176 after the Auckland win, which is the highest for any T20I side. India are followed by Sarfraz Ahmed-led Pakistan who have amassed 36 wins in 64 chases while losing 26. They have a win/loss ratio of 1.384. Australia are next, followed by South Africa and Sri Lanka.(Stats Courtesy: ESPNCricinfo)India are now one win away from winning the series and hence would equal a Pakistan-set World Record in T20I cricket. The win in Hamilton would leave India and Pakistan tied with 11 unbeaten T20I wins. While Pakistan have won all their 11 T20I matches before their South Africa defeat this month, India have won eight and drew two (both against Australia), since their defeat to West Indies in a one-off encounter in July 2017.Advertisement The Hamilton T20I will be played on Sunday and Seddon Park pitch will aide the bowlers more than the batters. “It’s important to understand the mistakes that we made – it’s been a long tour for everyone. So we didn’t want to put a lot of pressure on the boys, just go in there with a clear mind. It’s going to be a cracker of a game in the 3rd T20I, but nothing to take away from New Zealand, they’re still a quality side,” said Rohit Sharma after India’s win Auckland.Advertisement Advertisementlast_img read more

Liverpool patience pays off with win over Maribor

first_imgLiverpool were rewarded for their patience as they eventually overcame some resilient defending from Slovenia’s Maribor to win 3-0 at Anfield in their Champions League Group E match on Wednesday.Maribor had learned their lesson after suffering an embarrassing 7-0 home defeat in Slovenia and defended in numbers, keeping a compact shape and allowing Juergen Klopp’s side plenty of possession but few chances.After a frustrating first half, Liverpool finally broke through in the 49th minute when Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross from the right was expertly flicked home by Mohamed Salah.The home side should have doubled their advantage four minutes later when Roberto Firmino turned superbly to beat his marker Aleksander Rajcevic, who then brought down the Brazilian inside the area to concede a penalty.Yet Maribor keeper Jasmin Handanovic did well to push James Milner’s spot kick on to the post.The cushion of a second goal arrived in the 64th minute when Emre Can played a swift one-two with Milner before confidently driving home from the edge of the box.Substitute Daniel Sturridge made it 3-0 in the final minute when he was spotted, unmarked at the back post by Alberto Moreno following a short corner and had time to control before firing home.Liverpool top the group with eight points, one clear of second-placed Sevilla and three ahead of Spartak Moscow. Maribor prop up the standings with one point.last_img read more

Bell makes himself available for JFF Academy role

first_img Love for young players Meanwhile, Bell’s love for young players goes far beyond coaching and is not restricted to his own team. It is not uncommon to see him rush to the assistance of an injured opponent or hug an opposing player, who just had a horrific moment and give him words of comfort and encouragement. Against Tarrant on Tuesday, Bell showed his selflessness, as he left his bench to help nurse Tarrant’s injured goalkeeper, Jonathan Currie, who could not continue, and with the help of another person assisted the player (by shoulder) to the bench. He then had comforting words for substitute goalkeeper, Demario Knight, who slipped and spilled the ball in his own goal with his only touch of the game in time added on. “I have seen Cristiano Ronaldo play badly, I have seen Messi missing a penalty, so these youngsters will play badly and they will miss easy goals. But I have a genuine love for these kids and they know I have their backs. I get upset like any other father, I shout at them like any other father but for most parts, I just want the best for these kids and we are trying to do that through sports,” he noted. Neville ‘Bertis’ Bell, the highly-regarded head football coach at St George’s College, says he has no desire to coach the national senior team, noting that he is comfortable at his alma mater and is focused on helping youngsters in their development. To this end, the coach said that he would be willing to assist with the Jamaica Football Federation’s (JFF) youth development efforts. The charismatic Bell has earned many admirers for his work with St George’s and many believe he can have a similar impact on the Reggae Boyz. He is, however, more interested in helping the national academy. “I appreciate it (that people believe I can help the national team). It’s a huge compliment, but I am comfortable where I am. I have told the JFF that I would help in any way. Maybe I can help at the JFF academy, I would get involved in that but I really don’t have that desire or time to coach the national team. It takes a lot of time and I would have to give up everything else I’m doing and I am not sure I want to do that now,” said Bell. Despite his impressive resume and the respect that he has earned from Jamaican football fans, the five-time Manning Cup winning coach insisted that his best work is with young players. “I am happy here (St. G. C). I don’t think I have any great ability, but if I have any it would be to motivate kids. Sometimes when I hear ‘big coach’, I feel good but I am certainly not the big coach, I just want to motivate these youngsters,” he continued.last_img read more

Shuttle carrying former area resident, teacher blasts off

first_img• Photo Gallery: Space Shuttle Launch • AP Video: Space Shuttle LaunchMany people around the country watched astronaut Tracy Caldwell head into space aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour on Wednesday. But for Julie Amancio, who watched the launch on television at home in Chino, the event was equal parts inspiration and perspiration.“Oh my goodness,” Amancio said. “It’s scary, ’cause you want to make sure they get up there safe.” The lift-off wasn’t any easier for Marian Miller, Amancio’s mother, who was sitting at her daughter’s side.Minutes before, Miller talked about how as girls her daughter and Caldwell would spend time together.“To go from this to this is just awesome,” Miller said, first pointing to a picture taken decades ago of her daughter and Caldwell as little girls on horseback and then pointing to the shuttle on television.After the shuttle launched and Mission Control announced all systems were running smoothly, Miller exclaimed, “Good!”Caldwell, a mission specialist on this shuttle mission, has ties to the area. She will celebrate her 38th birthday on Aug. 14 – midway through her 11-day flight. She was born at Arcadia Methodist Hospital, according to her mother, Mary Ellen Caldwell. At the time, her family had been living in Pomona for about two years. Around 1972, the Caldwells moved to El Monte, where they lived until they moved to Glendora in 1980.The family lived in Oklahoma for about a year and a half, and returned to Southern California to make their home in Beaumont, where Tracy Caldwell graduated from high school.Wednesday afternoon in Beaumont, about 40 children assembled at the Beaumont-Cherry Valley Recreation and Park District to view the launch. Caldwell’s mother is the director of the center and has talked to the children about the launch for months.“They were excited, clapping and shouting and high-fiving each other,” said Lanette Dolan, a teacher at the center.On Wednesday’s mission, the Endeavour carried teacher-astronaut Barbara Morgan, who was finally fulfilling the dream of Christa McAuliffe and the rest of the fallen Challenger crew.Endeavour and its crew of seven rose from the seaside pad at 6:36 p.m., right on time, and pierced a solidly blue sky. They are expected to reach the international space station on Friday.Once Endeavour was safely past the 73-second mark of the flight, the moment when Challenger exploded shortly after the call “Go at throttle up,” Mission Control exclaimed that Morgan was “racing toward space on the wings of a legacy.”Immediately after the shuttle reached orbit, Mission Control announced: “For Barbara Morgan and her crewmates, class is in session.”Morgan, now 55, was McAuliffe’s backup for Challenger’s doomed launch in 1986. Even after two space shuttle disasters, she never swayed in her dedication to NASA and the agency’s on-and-off quest to send a schoolteacher into space. She rocketed away in the center seat of the cabin’s lower compartment, the same seat that had been occupied by McAuliffe.McAuliffe’s mother, Grace Corrigan, watched the launch on TV from her home in Massachusetts.“I’m very happy that it went up safely,” she said. “We all send her our love,” she added, her voice breaking.Midway through the flight, Morgan will speak with students in Idaho, where she taught elementary classes before moving to Houston in 1998 to train as a full-fledged astronaut, the first teacher to do so.But Morgan’s main responsibility in orbit will be to her commander, Navy Cmdr. Scott Kelly. She will help operate Endeavour’s robot arm and oversee the transfer of cargo from the shuttle to the station. The rest of the crew will be busy installing a huge square-shaped beam to the exterior of the station and replacing a broken gyroscope.The Associated Press contributed to this story.m_rodriguez@dailybulletin.com(909) 483-9336160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

‘Buried’ homeless study finally aired

first_imgThe authors said they believe their recommendations – compiled with the aid of hundreds of officials and community members – remain timely and represent the only “comprehensive and coordinated plan that identifies the organizations accountable for each action and specific benchmarks for outcomes.” In their study – “10-Year Strategy to End Homelessness: Public Discussion Draft” – the authors recommended that various city and county agencies and philanthropic organizations hold meetings to discuss the strategies, which include reducing homelessness among welfare recipients and those released from jails, hospitals and foster care. The plan also calls for obtaining commitments from public agencies to develop services and housing for the homeless, establish annual goals of reducing the number of homeless people and finding them jobs. It also involves enrolling more disabled homeless people in Supplemental Security Income, obtaining more federal Section 8 housing-subsidy vouchers, providing more substance abuse and mental health treatment for the homeless and establishing an oversight agency to ensure the plan is carried out. In the report, the authors wrote that the county’s Department of Public Social Services has the largest institutional role in preventing and ending homelessness. The authors wrote that 85 percent of the 254,000 people who were homeless some time in 2002 received welfare benefits. But Flaming said welfare cuts, rising housing costs and a lack of living-wage jobs have left those people unable to afford housing. The report also found the greatest scarcity of resources for homeless people in the Antelope and San Gabriel valleys. And the Antelope Valley has the highest percentage of homeless welfare recipients in the county at 34 percent. That compares to 12 percent in the San Gabriel Valley and 7 percent in the San Fernando Valley. “In the Antelope Valley, we had social workers testify about emancipated foster kids who were digging foxholes in the fields to sleep at night because they had absolutely no shelter,” Flaming said. troy.anderson@dailynews.com (213) 974-8985160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority’s 10-year plan to end county homelessness, released earlier this year, omitted more than two dozen significant recommendations, said authors of a study that was to form the plan’s backbone. And the authors charged Wednesday that while the expectation was that their three-year study, completed in June 2004, would be publicly vetted before being implemented, it was suppressed because of concern it would influence the November mayoral race. The report had 25 action strategies, and each one has someone to carry it out, said Daniel Flaming, president of the Economic Roundtable. The “Bring LA Home” report released in April uses pieces of this strategy, “but a lot of it got left out.” The roundtable undertook the LAHSA-commissioned study in 2002 with the Institute for the Study of Homelessness and Poverty at the Weingart Center. Under terms of their more than $100,000 contract with LAHSA, the groups were barred from releasing their study to the public.

Some involve doughnuts.After an independent group filed a Freedom of Information Act request, LAHSA quietly released the study last month. The groups made the study public today. The study was commissioned by LAHSA and headed by Mitchell Netburn, who resigned earlier this year after a city-county report faulted the agency’s money management. But Robin Conerly, interim executive director of LAHSA, said the agency just managed the process and did not suppress the report. Conerly said the report includes “very good, reasonable thinking” in its recommendations, and she expects those to be integrated into the report as it becomes an implementation plan, rather than just a campaign strategy document. Torie Osborn, senior adviser to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and his point person on homelessness, said the report was commissioned by the original Bring LA Home commission named by former Mayor James Hahn. “It came out in 2004 and was pretty much buried,” Osborn said. “I don’t know the reasons for that. It’s lost to institutional memory.” last_img read more
