Irfan Pathan paves way for life to return to normalcy for J&K cricketers

first_imgKolkata: The boys from Jammu & Kashmir are sweating it out at the Moti Bagh ground in Baroda as they prepare for the upcoming domestic season of the Board of Control for Cricket in India. Till a couple of days back, they weren’t even sure what the future had planned for them. After all, it wasn’t any normal time in the life of these cricketers from the Valley.The abrogation of Article 370 by the Indian government and the advisory before that saw the boys being asked to leave the state. There was a month of inactivity from early August till the start of September when the players did not have a place to stay. It was then that mentor Irfan Pathan spoke to officials of the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association, including CEO Ashiq Ali Bukhari and planned to give advertisements on television which drew the Kashmiri players to report to the JKCA office in Jammu.”The plan worked after we put out the advertisement in late August. Then we decided to bring them to Baroda and hold a camp before the Vijay Hazare Trophy,” Irfan told IANS.Due to the curfew in many parts of the valley after the state got special status, the players could not be contacted and it was then that Bukhari and administrator C.K. Prasad finally met in Delhi to create a solution.The camp has been underway from August 6 at Baroda under the watchful eyes of Irfan but to come this far, it was nothing short of a struggle. First, the JKCA had to stay away from the Vizzy Trophy after it failed to connect with the players due to a communication breakdown in the valley.”We had started the camp in mid-June and we had made good progress. When the camp got called off in early August, it was time for the matches and training. We know that we are running behind time but we needed to find a way to make sure boys stay in a good frame of mind to play a certain level of cricket,” Irfan said highlighting the problem they faced in the lead up to the Vijay Hazare Trophy which begins on September 24.There is only one ground in Jammu and it became impossible to practice there as other age-group players also needed to train. Usually, the team trains in Srinagar till early November and then shifts to Jammu during winters.”It is not an ideal situation. We are slightly under-prepared but we will try our best,” Irfan said after the boys — 26 of them led by captain and India international Parvez Rasool, trained for the first time in Baroda.It was a five-hour-long session with a lunch break in between but the highlight was a bonding session as Irfan stressed there will be a lot of fun games done to keep their mental health in the right space.”When I met them, they did look rusty due to lack of training. But in the next couple of weeks they will pick up hopefully,” said Irfan, who has been doing a lot of personal talk with each of the players to keep them in the zone.With preparations not being ideal, Irfan, who has played 29 Tests, 120 ODIs and 24 T20Is for India — and won the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007, said the aim is to take one day at a time and ensure the boys perform to the best of their abilities.

Fast reaction: 3 quick takeaways from Syracuse’s 105-57 blowout victory over Eastern Michigan

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Behind one of SU’s best offensive half of the season, Syracuse (7-4) raced out to a 52-24 lead at the break and cruised to a 105-57 win over Eastern Michigan (6-5) in the Carrier Dome on Monday night. The Orange assisted on all 19 field goals in the first half and hit eight 3-pointers in the opening 20 minutes. The rest was a formality, even without Tyler Lydon, who didn’t play in the second half due to a strained right Achilles suffered late in the first period.Here are three quick takeaways from SU’s dominant win over the Eagles.The status of Tyler LydonAfter coming down flat on his right foot following a rebound late in the first half, Lydon limped off the court and headed to the locker room with trainer Brad Pike. He hobbled into the tunnel under his own power and didn’t return to the court until the second half was just starting.Lydon was being held out as a precaution and would be available if the game was closer, per the ESPNU broadcast. Instead, with Syracuse leading comfortably at half, the sophomore sat in between assistant coaches Mike Hopkins and Gerry McNamara while wearing a blue T-shirt and warmup pants with ice on his right foot/ankle.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBefore his injury, Lydon led the Orange with 12 points on 4-of-7 shooting. He hit both of his 3-pointers, both of his free throws and chipped in six rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal.The guards answered Jim Boeheim’s pleasGranted, it was against an inferior opponent, but Eastern Michigan came into the game averaging the second-most steals per game in the country. Rob Murphy’s 2-3 zone, the one he learned while an assistant under Boeheim from 2004-11, was no match for the Orange’s backcourt.The SU head coach has harped on the fact his team needs more from its guards, in whatever capacity that may be. On Monday night, they delivered. Andrew White, Tyus Battle, John Gillon and Frank Howard combined to score 56 points while shooting 17-of-33 from the field.Howard registered 11 assists and Gillon nine, while Battle seemed back to his normal self following a week of not practicing an being eased back into competition against the Hoyas. Howard shed his offensive demons to an extent, scoring 10 points on 3-of-5 shooting, snapping a dreadful 2-for-20 streak over the three games prior to Monday’s.White and Gillon continued their steady play of late, combining to score 28 points while hitting a total of seven 3-pointers.Tyler Roberson emerges from the doghouse, for nowWith Lydon sidelined the entirety of the second half, Roberson played over 20 minutes for the first time since Nov. 26 against South Carolina.He scored 10 points, almost equaling his total of 12 points from the last six games. Roberson also pulled down eight rebounds, holding down frontcourt duties with either Dajuan Coleman and Taurean Thompson in the second half.Roberson has been mainly a non-factor this season with the emergence of the freshman Thompson as Syracuse’s best low-post scorer. In the first half, the combination of Lydon and Thompson was lethal, as the pair connected on high-lows on multiple occasions to stretch Syracuse’s lead to enough where it didn’t need arguably its best player for the second stanza.And even if it was at the expense of an injury, Roberson got his chance, which he didn’t too all that badly with.

Tyler Vaughns represents the future for the USC offense

first_imgFreshman wide receiver Tyler Vaughns dives into the end zone in a game against Arizona State. Photo by Daniel Zhu | Daily TrojanAfter a full week of dealing with the fallout from Notre Dame, head coach Clay Helton was happy to hand out plenty of praise following USC’s bounce-back victory at Arizona State last week.“Maybe our best team effort all away across the board,” Helton said after the Trojans’ 48-17 blowout over the Sun Devils, in which they torched ASU for 607 yards on offense.As usual, USC relied heavily on the run, but the team opened up a big lead early thanks to a handful of big passing plays. The Trojans saw on film how aggressively the Sun Devil cornerbacks were pressing, and they employed a simple game plan through the air: Go deep.“The plan was to try to throw it over their heads and back them off,” Helton said. “Whether we hit them or not, we thought it was going to be important.”Redshirt sophomore quarterback Sam Darnold executed the strategy to perfection, and redshirt freshman wide receiver Tyler Vaughns hauled in close to half of Darnold’s 266 passing yards and caught two of his three touchdown passes. It was a career night in every way for the wideout: Vaughns’ six catches tied a career high for the third straight week, and his 126 yards, two scores and 42-yard touchdown reception were all personal bests.The big night was a long time coming. After beginning the season sharing a spot on the depth chart with redshirt freshman Josh Imatorbhebhe and freshman Randall Grimes, Vaughns shot up the ranks as he quickly developed a rapport with Darnold. Vaughns has emerged as one of his quarterback’s favorite targets.“Tyler has been a big part to the passing game for a while now,” Darnold said. “I think the way he works and the fact that every single play [he assumes] the ball is coming to him is huge. That’s a really great mentality to have as a receiver.”Vaughns frankly had no reason to assume a throw was coming his way on his second touchdown reception. Reminiscent of Darnold’s snipe through triple coverage in last season’s Rose Bowl, Vaughns caught a laser beam late in the second half while sandwiched between three defenders and taking an illegal hit to the head to stretch USC’s lead to 25 points.Offensive coordinator Tee Martin described his disbelief in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.“It’s a pick, it’s a pick, it’s a pick,” he remembered muttering aloud during the play. “No, it’s a touchdown!”Vaughns had only found the end zone once in his college career before his two-score effort in Tempe, when he hauled in a 37-yard pass against Oregon State. But last Saturday also marked the fifth straight game he had recorded at least five receptions and 65 yards, and his career night quietly pushed him ahead of redshirt senior wideout Steven Mitchell Jr. as USC’s second-leading receiver with 478 yards on the season.Now, as the Trojans pursue their first Pac-12 championship in nearly a decade, Vaughns will be one of Darnold’s central weapons alongside Burnett and the running back duo of junior Ronald Jones II and freshman Stephen Carr. Vaughns’ breakout — if he can sustain it — might just lift a receiving corps that never seemed to recover from the departure of wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.When reporters questioned his options on opening day, Darnold insisted he just needed time to develop trust with his young wideouts. He steadfastly maintained his stance as the season went on, through every miscommunication and every interception. Perhaps Vaughns’ second-quarter score last weekend was the tipping point Darnold had long been waiting for.“That was the moment that I felt [Darnold] trusted [Vaughns] to that next level,” Martin said, “like the Deontay throw in the Rose Bowl.”last_img read more

Eight operators fall foul of Spelinspektionen

first_img Global Gaming adds sportsbook extension to Ninja property August 25, 2020 StumbleUpon Submit ‘Deal maker’ Rafi Ashkenazi ends Flutter tenure  August 27, 2020 Soft2Bet continues new market drive with Irokobet launch August 26, 2020 Related Articles Share Share Eight gambling operators, including Flutter Entertainment and GVC Holdings, have fallen foul of Spelinspektionen after it was revealed that the operators had been offering betting markets on events where the majority of the players were under the age of 18.Bet365, GVC, The Stars Group, Flutter Entertainment, Gaming Innovation Group (GiG), Bethard Group, Casinostugan Limited and Polar limited had all received both a warning, and subsequent penalty fees, which have amounted to  SEK41.2m (£3.5m).Hillside ENC – which holds the Swedish licence for bet365 – was among the operators that faced the highest penalty after being hit with a penalty fee of SEK10m. TSG Interactive, which holds the license for pokerstars.se, pokerstarscasino.se, fulltilt.se and betstars.se, was faced with the same penalty. Betfair International, which holds a license for its betfair.se site, was hit with a penalty fee of SEK5.5m (£467,000), while Bethard Group – which operates a number of betting brands including bethard.se, inandoutbet.com, scandibet.com and fastbet.com – was handed a SEK2.5m penalty.Katarina Abrahamson, Coordinator against match fixing at The Swedish Gambling Authority, told SBC that the fines have been issued by the regulator in a bid to ‘protect’ underage players from the influence of gambling. The infractions, which Abrahamson has described as a ‘serious breach’ of Swedish law, have led the gaming operators to implement various measures in ensuring that future betting takes place in accordance with the country’s gaming laws, for example by not offering games on U19 and U21 series.Abrahamson explained that Swedish law strictly prohibits the wagering of bets on matches featuring players or athletes who are not yet of a legal gambling age – which is currently 18.last_img read more
