MS Dhoni struggling at the moment, India too top-heavy: Sourav Ganguly

first_imgSourav Ganguly was critical of the Indian team management’s handling of KL Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane and reckoned the side was too dependent on the top three – Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli.India lost the three-match ODI series to England at Leeds on Tuesday – it was their first series loss since January 2016 and came after another poor show by the middle-order. Rohit got a hundred in the first match while Kohli scored two half-centuries at Old Trafford and Leeds. Dhawan was far from his best and that meant the onus was on the middle-order to fire.In fact, the India’s batsmen from Nos 4 to 6, had a strike rate of only 66. Overall, they scored 156 runs from seven innings they played in the series. Suresh Raina’s 46 was the best effort by the middle-order.More disconcerting was MS Dhoni’s form. At Lord’s, he failed to get going when India needed some big hits during a steep chase while at Leeds, he scored a scratchy 42. And then there was the bizarre decision to leave KL Rahul out of the last ODI after plenty of pre-series hype given his form in the IPL and the T20Is.Also read – Rishabh Pant named in India squad for first 3 Tests vs EnglandGanguly said Dhoni needed to do more if he is to play in the 2019 World Cup.”If Dhoni has got to play, then he has got to get in a position where he keeps hitting. If it is 24-25 overs and he has got to build an innings, he is struggling at the moment.advertisement”He may turn it around as he has been a great player for India but at the present he is not turning it around enough and this has been going on for more than an year,” said Ganguly.Also read – MS Dhoni asks for match ball after Leeds ODI. Twitter is abuzz”India are too top heavy at the moment. If your top-order doesn’t get runs, then you are struggling. It is a big issue. You have to have quality like England have,” said Ganguly in his post-match analysis for the official broadcasters.Ganguly said he would bat Rahul at number four, behind Rohit, Dhawan and Kohli. On Tuesday, for the series-decider, India decided to bring in Dinesh Karthik instead.”Eyes closed, I will have Rahul at four. Your top four have to be the best players and you got to persist with them. Go and speak to Rahul and say ‘we will give you 15 games’. Just go and play.Also read – India vs England: Root, Morgan and English spinners snap India’s winning run”They (the team management) are not giving enough opportunities at the moment. Rahul got the fantastic hundred at Manchester and now he was dropped. You won’t be able to produce players like that. Same for Rahane.”These are your two best batsmen. You have to have solid number four and five. Then you decide between Dinesh Karthik or MS Dhoni at six and Hardik Pandya at seven,” said one of India’s most successful captains.Ganguly said there was too much pressure on Kohli and Rohit at the moment. The former captain said India won the ODI series in South Africa because of Kohli’s three hundreds (he finished with 558 runs from six matches).Also read – Virat Kohli wants India to move on after first ODI series defeat since 2016Ganguly felt Rahul and Rahane were not being looked after properly.”I think two of your best batsmen (Rahane and Rahul) are not being looked after properly. I am not saying it is deliberate but it is my opinion either of the two have to be played at four because it is too much pressure, especially on Rohit and Virat Kohli.”In South Africa, India did well because Kohli got three hundreds. If he doesn’t get a hundred, you will have issues.”(With PTI inputs)last_img read more

Gov’t Allocating $35m for Road Repairs in St. Thomas

first_img Local Government and Community Development Minister, Hon. Desmond McKenzie, says the funds, which are expected to be disbursed on Monday (June 5) will be used to repair several breakaways. The Government will be allocating $35 million to repair several roads in St. Thomas that were damaged during the recent flood rains. Story Highlights The Government will be allocating $35 million to repair several roads in St. Thomas that were damaged during the recent flood rains.Local Government and Community Development Minister, Hon. Desmond McKenzie, says the funds, which are expected to be disbursed on Monday (June 5) will be used to repair several breakaways.This provision is in addition to $30 million, which he said was allocated to assist in clearing several roads across the parish that were blocked also as a result of the rains.The Minister was speaking with journalists during a tour of communities in St. Thomas on Friday, June 2.While pointing out that not all of the damaged roads would be repaired, Mr. McKenzie assured that a short-term solution was being pursued.“As more funds are available, we will ensure that disbursement is (done) in a timely manner, so that (the) response to the needs of the parish can be as quick as possible,” he said.In this regard, the Minister said it was imperative that the National Works Agency and St. Thomas Municipal Council discuss how this would be effectively undertaken, while commending both entities on their quick response in clearing the blocked roads recently.Meanwhile, Mr. McKenzie emphasized the need to reduce the risks which roadways with breakaways posed for users, until the repairs are carried out.To this end, he has asked officers attached to the St. Thomas Municipal Corporation to immediately erect warning signs in the vicinity of these areas in the interim.Mr. McKenzie also indicated that a multi-agency approach is being embarked on to carry out clean up and recovery work in the communities of Cave Valley and Douglas Castle in St. Ann, which suffered extensive flooding and damage.

Why An AnalyticsObsessed Cycling Team Keeps Winning The Tour De France

More: Apple Podcasts | ESPN App | RSS FiveThirtyEight Welcome to the latest episode of Hot Takedown, FiveThirtyEight’s sports podcast. On this week’s show (July 26, 2016), we talk to The Wall Street Journal’s Jason Gay about the Tour de France and Team Sky, which has won four of the past five Tours — perhaps because of an emphasis on analytics. (That it has a lot of money also helps.) Then, Neil Paine explains why MLB teams should always at least look to buy or sell at the trade deadline, rather than hold. Finally, we talk about Nnemkadi Ogwumike’s extraordinary year for the WNBA’s L.A. Sparks and whether she’s having the best statistical season of all time. Plus, a significant digit on Roger Federer’s announcement that he will miss the rest of the tennis season because of a knee injury.Links to what we discuss are here:Jason Gay in The Wall Street Journal asks if the Tour de France needs a financial fix to help balance competition among teams.Gay describes how the eventual Tour de France winner, Chris Froome, ran up a mountain in his cleats after crashing his bike during this year’s race.On Deadspin, Patrick Redford explains how Froome dominated this year’s Tour.And William Fotheringham in the Guardian breaks down how Team Sky’s analytics and tactics helped it to victory.Last year, Neil Paine and Nate Silver came up with the “Doyle Number.” It tells us when an MLB team should be willing to trade future talent at the trade deadline in order to try to win in the current season.Neil calculated the Doyle Numbers for this year’s teams, and the Chicago Cubs came out on top, meaning the team should try to win this season rather than hoard prospects.Jim Bowden at ESPN breaks down the trade deadline objectives for all 30 MLB teams.Nnemkadi Ogwumike’s Basketball-Reference.com page.

Reds Indians week in review

Cleveland IndiansThe Cleveland Indians struggled offensively once again, going 2-4 in series’ against the Los Angeles Angels and the Minnesota Twins.After taking only one of three from the Angels, the Tribe returned home and only won one in a weekend series against the division-leading Twins.The Indians are 10-14, 5-and-a-half games behind the Twins in the American League Central and in third place behind Detroit.Studs: Austin Kearns. The former Cincinnati Reds slugger had a big week, with seven hits and six RBIs in three games against the Angels. He came into Sunday’s game against Minnesota hitting .357, with two home runs and 12 RBIs.Duds: The offense. The Indians’ offense continues to be a major disappointment, with an American League-worst 85 runs. Those fortunes could change when highly touted catching prospect Carlos Santana gets called up from the Columbus Clippers.Up Next: The Indians continue their homestand with three games against Toronto beginning Monday and a three-game weekend series with the Detroit Tigers. Cincinnati RedsStep by step, the Reds are creeping back from a sluggish start to the season.The Reds opened up their week on the road with a three-game series at Houston.For the first time this season, Reds fans had their chance to bring out the brooms, as the Reds swept the series against the Astros.Pitchers Aaron Harang and Bronson Arroyo had some solid outings, each recording a win in the first and third games of the series respectively, and Mike Leake continued a brilliant start to his professional career recording a win off his seven-inning, five-hit performance in the second game.Pitcher Johnny Cueto helped the Reds’ win-streak get to five games on Friday, as the Reds won at St. Louis.The streak then came to an end Saturday as the Reds couldn’t match the Cardinals’ late-game surge, losing the game 6-3.Studs: The Rotation. At the beginning of the season, it seemed like these guys were never going to win a game for the Reds. In just this past week, Harang, Leake, Arroyo and Cueto all recorded wins, and didn’t leave it up to late game heroics to ensure a Reds’ win.Duds: Jonny Gomes. It was tough because no one Red had a really bad week. Gomes has only two hits in 15 at-bats over the last six games, though, and he’s a liability in the field as it is.Next Week: The Reds come back home this week as they host a series with the Mets today, and then get a day off before hosting a three-game series against the Cubs. read more

Ohio State to be awarded with Capital One Cup at ESPYs

The OSU men’s volleyball team pose with their second consecutive national title trophy alongside James DeSantis, nine-year-old super fan. Credit: Sheridan Hendrix | Oller ReporterOver the past year, few athletic programs have accomplished as much as Ohio State. And for that success, the Buckeyes’ men’s athletics program will be rewarded Wednesday during the ESPYs with the Capital One Cup, an award given to both a men’s and women’s group of athletes that demonstrated consistent success over a variety of sports. The Stanford Cardinal women’s athletics program won the women’s Capital One Cup.The award is earned on a points basis, with different point values being assigned to either ranking within the Top 10 of a certified poll, or placing in the championships of any given sport. The Ohio State men’s athletic program received 111 points, narrowly edging out two-time cup champion Florida who came in second with 105 points.To the athletes and alumni, this award takes on a special meaning.“It says that you’re one of the best,” said Eddie George, former Ohio State running back and 1995 Heisman Trophy winner. “For us to finally hoist up a Capital One trophy to say, ‘OK, our athletic program as a whole is the best in the land,’ says a lot.”For its victory, Ohio State will receive not only the trophy, but $200,000 to be put towards student-athlete scholarships.And though Ohio State ranked third in highest-grossing athletic programs according to Business Insider, George said the school can benefit from the additional source of funding.“Anytime that you can get money for student-athletes to get more opportunities to come, it’s just that added bonus,” George said. “It’s saying that you don’t have to go out and fundraise as much. That goes right toward the bottom line, and it allows for student-athletes to get scholarships, not just for football, but for all sports. It gives someone a chance to foster their dream and to get a great education.”Winning an award such as this requires a well-oiled machine of athletics and someone at the helm who knows how to run it, George said. As a result, George believes a great deal of credit belongs to Smith for the work he has put into Ohio State athletics to put the program in a position to function as well as it has. “It just goes to show you the great job that Gene Smith has done for Ohio State as our athletic director,” George said. “(He) is very adamant and persistent about equality in all of our sports and supporting all of our sports.”George said that Smith and the rest of the athletic department have worked hard to bring Ohio State to the point of where it is no longer just viewed as a football or basketball school, but a university with widespread success across all different sports. He added that winning an award like this one sends a message to any potential incoming recruits that the program as a whole is committed to bringing together all the pieces required to drive a championship-caliber team.“It says that we’re hiring the best coaches, we’re giving the best mentorships, we’re doing everything we can as a university to put our athletes in the best position both athletically and academically,” George said. “It says that you’re coming to a program that believes in winning championships, that’s getting recognition, the best of the best.”George will officially bestow the honor to his alma mater during the presentation of the award, handing the trophy to fellow Ohio State alum and member of the 2016 National Championship-winning men’s volleyball team Miles Johnson.The former standout running back said he did not know how he was chosen, but that as soon as they called to offer him the position, he immediately accepted.“When they asked me to do it, I didn’t hesitate,” George said. “And to honor Ohio State for winning their first-ever Capital One Cup trophy is pretty amazing, so I’m honored to do it.”The ESPYs will begin at 8 p.m. Wednesday, and will be aired on ABC. Point Breakdown:Lacrosse: 36Volleyball: 20Football: 15Gymnastics: 12Wrestling: 12Tennis: 8Fencing: 6*Rifle: 2**The rifle and fencing team received double the listed total, but since both teams are mixed genders, the point totals had to be split with half going to men’s athletics and the other half allotted to women’s athletics. read more

Gracia believes that Doucoure should stay at Watford

first_imgJavi Gracia is certain that Abdoulaye Doucoure shouldn’t rush on his move from the club because he can fulfil his European dream even with the Hornets if he will, in the end, decide to stay here.The new Watford coach knows that there are a couple of clubs interested in Doucoure and he would be keen on a potential transfer as well – but he believes that it wouldn’t be the right choice.The Spaniard spoke about his side’s talented player as he said, according to Sky Sports:Players who made it public that they weren’t happy in their club Jozef Fabian – September 12, 2019 Football is about so much more than what happens on the pitch.“Doucoure is playing for a very big team, playing in the Premier League and in the future I would like him to play with Watford in Europe.”“Maybe in the future, he can play with other big clubs who play in the Champions League.”“But what I feel at this moment is that all of our players are proud to belong at this club. They are concentrated on the next match and trying to put the team as high in the table as possible.”last_img read more

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact There are six teams on bye this week and there’s a very good chance that you have multiple starters you’re about to bench. If you’ve been running with Andrew Luck or Philip Rivers and figured you’d dump your backup, it’s time to grab that one-hit wonder. It’s a tough week for running backs too. I had to start Mike James in one of my leagues, and although it didn’t completely crush my running game, it still hurts to start someone this late in the season when the last time you heard their name was on a Saturday. If this is the week you stacked your byes or if you need to fill a gaping hole in your lineup, check out these players and pick up a win in Week 8.Your six Week 8 bye teams: BAL, CHI, HOU, IND, SD, TENQB – 19% Geno Smith, NYJ @ CIN – This guy seems to find a way to get a TD or two every week despite a revolving door of offensive skill players around him. Rex Ryan decided just a few plays into the game that Chris Ivory was going to replace Bilal Powell at running back and Ivory won the carries battle 34-3. The only consistent feature of this offensive attack all year has been Smith.WR – 8% Andre Roberts, ARI vs. ATL – With Larry Fitgerald obviously ailing and the running game becoming more stagnant as Rashard Mendenhall continues to get carries, Carson Palmer will have to go to the air even more and Roberts can be the benefactor. I’m really hoping that Andre Ellington will become this team’s every down back but that seems a little farfetched seeing as Arians won’t let his love for Mendenhall go.RB – 52% Joseph Randle, DAL @ DET – Good matchup here for last week’s breakout running back. If DeMarco Murray doesn’t play then Randle will be in line for the start and another great day on the field. It seems like everyone desperately needs another back right now and this is a great option for plug and play on such a big off-week for the position. Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 0 Comments   Share   TE – 58% Jordan Reed, WAS @ DEN – This guy is a MUST OWN. The Redskins will be passing all day and will be able to expand the offense a bit more with RG3’s knee becoming less and less of an issue. The best sign for Reed owners is that Fred Davis was a healthy scratch last week. Even you have a good TE, get this guy on your team for Flex purposes.DEF – 35% Pittsburgh Steelers @ OAK – The old timey Steelers D should come out in this game. The run-stuffing, hard-hitting, flying-Polomaluing Steel Curtain will be in full effect, especially since the Raiders continue to have issues running the ball. Darren McFadden will return for Oakland but he won’t be 100% and has a rough match up ahead of him. Ignore Pitt’s record in this one, the D will be ready to shut down the Raiders.last_img read more
