New Delhi: The Indian skipper Virat Kohli along with the Head Coach Ravi Shastri addressed the media ahead of the departure for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 which is scheduled to begin on May 30. Indian skipper focused on the importance of the two wrist spinners (Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav) and also spoke about the preparations for the game against Pakistan. Virat Kohli will lead Indian team into the World Cup for the first time.”Kuldeep Yadav has had time to reflect and time to correct things entering the World Cup. Kuldeep and Yuzvendra Chahal are the two pillars for the World Cup. We were not worried about Kedar Jadhav. A team that does well in the World Cup is one that can handle the pressure well,” he said.Before starting their World Cup campaign, India will play two warm-up games against New Zealand and Bangladesh. The first league game is scheduled to be played against South Africa on June 5 at Rose Bowl in Southampton. When asked, whether the upcoming World Cup challenging, Virat said, “It is the most challenging World Cup of all the three I’ve attended so far. Any team can upset any side on their day.

This team has played brilliant cricket over the last five years. The most important thing is to get out there and enjoy the World Cup. If you play to your potential, the cup might be here.””Our mantra will be to be flexible according to conditions. Anywhere else in the world, overcast conditions don’t matter much, but in England it does. So you’ve got to be ready for that,” he added.Speaking about the importance of MS Dhoni, Ravi said, “Mahendra Singh Dhoni is someone who’ll be right there. His communication with Virat has been fantastic. No one better than him when it comes to keeping. Great to see the way he was moving in this IPL. He will be a big player in this World Cup.”The all-important clash against the arch-rival Pakistan is scheduled to happen on June 16 and when Virat was asked about that particular game, he said, “If we keep focusing individually on every team, we won’t be able to focus on our campaign.”
by Malik VincentFor New Pittsburgh Courier Allderdice head coach Andre McDonald preaches defensive toughness to his players. If you ask anyone on his staff or someone he’s coached, he swears by it. So much, that the Dragons have proudly sported “HAWK-D” on their warm-ups for the past five years, and this season on their uniforms. But they aren’t the only ones who do.“It was uplifting to hear the entire student body chanting HAWK-D,” McDonald said. “It was really motivation to our guys to play the best game that we could.” ‘HAWK-D’—The Allderdice boys celebrate with the championship trophy after defeating Perry 73-63 in the City League championship game March 5. (Courier photo/William McBride/File) Led by senior Cameron Bailey’s 22 points and Eric Mallinger’s near triple-double, Allderdice (12-4, 17-7) won its second consecutive City League boys basketball Championship over top-seeded Perry, 73-63, at Peabody High School March 5.“It was a great contest,” Bailey said. “But I have to give much credit to our coaching staff, they had a great scouting report and they did everything they could to get us prepared for battle.”Perry had been the favorite to win it all after surrendering one conference game all year and defeating Allderdice in both of their regular season meetings.“I realized we needed to be prepared this time,” McDonald added. “We broke down the film from the last four meetings and made sure that we were going to come out and compete at our highest level.”Junior guard Justin Dobbs added a game-high 23 points for the Dragons but admits that he got off to a slow start.“My shot was off early so I eventually got to a point where I was just trying to get to the foul line.” Dobbs said. “We started to run the pick and roll and once that happened, I was fortunate enough to start making good decisions with the basketball.”Mallinger finished with nine points, 11 blocks, and 16 rebounds.“I knew that the offense was going to come,” Mallinger said. “I take pride in doing what I need to do on the defensive end. The coaches and I don’t even need to discuss that. I just try to go out there every game and crash the boards, as well as to make plays on defense.”Perry’s normal leading scorer, Marcus Smith, was held to only 10 points for the Commodores (15-1, 21-4). They were led by Bruce Grover’s 19 points and Greg McGhee’s 16, 11 of which he converted from the free-throw line.“We set out to build a strong program from top to bottom,” Allderdice assistant coach Jason Rivers said. “We’re the only team in the city that has a ninth grade program that feeds into our junior varsity, and goes into varsity. These kids do a tremendous job to get prepared to come up and win in this level.”(Reprinted from the March 9, New Pittsburgh Courier.)

ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 23, 2016)–The overwhelming 1-9 favorite, American Gal ran like it, taking Sunday’s $70,000 Anoakia Stakes for 2-year-old fillies by 6 ½ lengths under Rafael Bejarano. Owned and bred by Kaleem Shah, the Kentucky-bred filly by Concord Point, trained by Bob Baffert, covered six furlongs in 1:10.46.Breaking from the far outside in post position five, American Gal sat a close third into the far turn and overtook dueling leaders Bernina Star and Woot Woot leaving the quarter pole en route to an authoritative victory.“She surprised me today,” said Bejarano. “I thought she would show more speed away from the gate, more than last time. But today, she was calmer in the post parade and even in the paddock and at the start as well.“She finished better today than in her last race. Last time, she was head and head, but she showed more finish today, more kick.”Idle since breaking her maiden at first asking at Del Mar on Aug. 14, American Gal paid $2.20, $2.10 and $2.10.With a total show pool of $345,356, American Gal accounted for $315,450 of it–resulting in a minus show pool of $63,891.“Today was good, it’s always nice having a home-bred,” said Baffert. “It’s crazy, I think she blew a shoe leaving there, I want to see how her foot is.”Ridden by Norberto Arroyo, Jr., Woot Woot, who has ascended from the maiden claiming ranks, was off at 7-1 and paid $2.80 and $2.10.Bernina Star, who broke from the rail with Jamie Theriot, was off at 6-1 and paid $2.10 to show.Fractions on the race were 21.99, 45.21 and 57.62.

The … PHILADELPHIA — When the Toronto Blue Jays shipped their staff ace, Marcus Stroman, to the New York Mets on Sunday, the first reaction of many players, managers and executives was the exact same.“What?,” they asked at once.Considered one of the top pitchers available on the trade market, Stroman was expected to move from the Blue Jays to a contending club with a legitimate need for a frontline starter come October.In all likelihood, the Mets’ season will end in September.
A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Jordanian student sentence to two years in prison for IM. Imad Al-Ash got two years in prison for the last refuge of the scoundrel, lèse majesté. (If you want a quick rule of thumb for tinhorn dictatorships, check to see if lèse majesté is on the books.) During the five months leading up to his sentencing, the Jordanian secret service tortured the kid. He had allegedly sent an IM criticizing the King of Jordan. Maybe the Queen should consider extending her vaunted public “patronage” of education to encompass the less stylish area of NOT ALLOWING HER HUSBAND TO TORTURE PEOPLE. But what do I know? I went to a state school.Kenya introduces toll-free SMS to report hate speech. In advance of the August 4 elections, the Kenyan government is prosecuting hate speech. Given the horrible inter-ethnic violence, it’s understandable. But given how every thing becomes a weapon in this sort of a fight, it’s worrying. When the next election’s done, who believes such a thing will be rolled back? BurstNET shuts down 70,000 blogs over terrorism scare. A hosting company shut down a platform, Blogetery, that had over 70,000 blogs. First it maintained the FBI had told it to, then admitted the agency had only asked for information on its owner, Alexander Yusupov. One of the blogs had allegedly contained Al-Qaeda-oriented terrorism information. The company said the terrorism issue was the last straw as the owner had broken to the TOS regarding copyright.China now plans to “deanonymize” cell phone users. China is attempting to destroy all anonymity on the Internet. Week after week of this, I don’t even know what more to say. The Chinese government is just wall-to-wall creeps. The United States plans to “deanonymize” the Internet. Really? Really? Are you people doing this just to embarrass me? Saying “there’s no difference between the U.S. and China” is stupid. But saying, “It looks like there’s less and less difference” is, unfortunately, not. Saudi arrested on the most ridiculous charge yet. My hand to G-d I thought I had seen every knuckle-headed “charge” a person could be brought up on. But the Saudis, bless their black little hearts, have raised the bar. For criticism of religious and political leaders in his country, Sheikh Mekhlef bin Dahham al-Shammari has been arrested on the charge of “annoying others.” I swear to you I am not making that up. Just click the link. I mean, are the KSA’s torture squads even trying anymore? Turkish citizens hit the bricks to protest online censorship. Thank you, my Turkish brothers and sisters, for allowing me to end on a note of hope. Though the increasingly autocratic Turkish government is cinching down more and more on its people, those people aren’t taking it lying down. Thousands of people took to the street.
