Cricket News England vs India 2nd Test: Rain washes out entire first day of Lord’s match

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. London: Frustrating the two teams, incessant rain washed out the entire day one of the second cricket Test between India and England at Lord’s, London on Thursday.The play was called off at 4.50 pm local time without a single ball being bowled.The match officials decided to take an early lunch, moving the scheduled break ahead by 30 minutes. Even after lunch, there was no respite from the rain and it went on throughout the afternoon.Finally, 45 minutes after the ‘tea break’, the umpires inspected conditions twice before declaring no play was possible today.The remaining four days will see 96 overs each to make up for the lost time. However, there is more rain forecast for this weekend and as such this match could see routine rain breaks.A few players, including Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik, Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings, did make their way to the indoor nets to pass time.As the scheduled tea break came over, there was some weather clearance in the distance and the rain did slow down. The umpires came out and had a chat with the ground staff as well, who were regularly cleaning off water from the covers.England are leading the five-match series 1-0 after winning the first Test in Birmingham by 31 runs.England did name a first 12 on Wednesday, with 20-year-old Olliver Pope waiting to make his Test debut. India have not announced their playing XI but skipper Virat Kohli had said that he was tempted to play the second spinner.That thought might well have changed now, given the weather conditions and forecast ahead.  last_img read more

Syracuse to relive ‘miracle,’ face Big Red in finals rematch

first_img Comments Published on April 12, 2010 at 12:00 pm Jovan Miller called it a miracle.Only 27 seconds separated Cornell from a national championship. Big Red attack Rob Pannell thought the game was wrapped up. A Syracuse turnover gave his team possession in its own end with a 9-8 lead. The championship trophy was all but sealed.But then came ‘the miracle.’Nine seconds left, Syracuse’s Stephen Keogh picks up the loose ball just before midfield. He lofts it behind his back to Matt Abbott 20 yards from the goal. Two Cornell defenders converge on the SU midfielder, but he keeps his balance and flings a pass toward the net. Six seconds left.The ball deflects off Cornell midfielder Roy Lang’s stick right to Kenny Nims on the crease. He makes the catch, dives around goalie Jake Myers and buries the shot in the back of the net. Tie game. Four seconds left. ‘The miracle’ complete. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘Every time I think about that situation, I get goose bumps,’ Miller said Monday. ‘It’s something that’s almost too good to be true. It should be in a movie-type deal.’Cody Jamieson would go on to score the game-winning goal with 2:40 left in overtime, delivering Syracuse its 11th national championship with the 10-9 victory. That game marks the high point of the local matchup that is quickly developing into a major rivalry. Despite Syracuse’s overall series domination, highly competitive games have become the trend in recent years, as Cornell has risen to meet its upstate New York counterpart.And tonight at 7 p.m., for the first time since the championship game, No. 2 Syracuse (8-1, 2-0 Big East) and No. 9 Cornell (8-2, 3-1 Ivy League) will butt heads at Schoellkopf Field in Ithaca, N.Y.‘We’re always excited to play (Syracuse),’ Cornell senior attack Ryan Hurley said in a phone interview Friday. ‘And obviously with the game last year, the rivalry has kind of changed for a while.’As one of the most storied programs in college lacrosse history, Syracuse has plenty of big rivals among the top teams in the country. The Orange has already taken on Virginia, Princeton and Johns Hopkins this season, as it does every year.But those teams don’t have the Central New York influence on their rosters that Cornell does. Those teams aren’t 45 minutes down Interstate 81.SU head coach John Desko said that even before the championship epic last season, this matchup brought a lot of intensity.‘Cornell-Syracuse, to begin with, is an emotional game,’ he said. ‘You’ve got players from the Central New York area from both groups that have known each other throughout their high school careers and now into college. Plus, the two teams are local and you’ve got a repeat of last year’s national championship game.’Historically, the upstate battle has been mostly one-sided. SU leads the series 60-33-1, including a 20-4 record against the Big Red since 1988.But all four of those Cornell wins have come since 2000, equaling all of the Big Red’s victories in the series over the previous 19 years. And were it not for the frenzied ending to the championship game a year ago, Cornell would be only one game under .500 against the Orange last decade. ‘If you beat them once, that’s considered a lot of success against Syracuse, and we’ve had the opportunity and the great fortune to beat them a couple times,’ Big Red head coach Jeff Tambroni said in a phone interview Thursday. ‘… The rivalry may have heightened because some of those wins by Cornell.‘And maybe because of the championship game last year, there will be a little bit more publicity and certainly a little bit more focus on this particular game.’Both teams did lose key players from last year’s teams. Tewaaraton Trophy winner Max Seibald is one of 16 seniors from last season who won’t be trotting onto the field for Cornell tonight. Nims and Abbott won’t be connecting for any miraculous finishes this time around for the Orange, who lost 11 seniors from last year’s team.But that doesn’t take away from this budding rivalry. There are still plenty of players from last year on both teams that will take the field tonight, players that experienced the emotions of that game. For Cornell players, it was devastation and disappointment. Pannell said tears filled the locker room after the game. The championship trophy slipped right through their fingers.For Syracuse, it was elation and euphoria. The Orange came out on the right side of a ‘miracle.’And in Miller’s mind, those emotions and those memories will carry over to the rematch tonight.‘I wouldn’t be surprised if they try to pack out the whole stadium,’ he said. ‘I know on their end, they’re extremely bitter. It was the national championship game. I think we’re going to have to come in and be extremely poised, and we have to be ready for anything.’zjbrown@syr.educenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Jung Money: Americans are blinded by Olympic pageantry

first_imgBefore I get started, I want to apologize for yet another Winter Olympics-related column this week. But as a Korean, I feel compelled to follow up on something I wrote earlier this semester.Ollie Jung | Daily TrojanWhen North Korea announced it would send 22 athletes to PyeongChang, South Korea, last month, I was cautiously optimistic. Even though tensions between the hermit nation and the rest of the world were at their highest in recent memory, I was hopeful — hopeful that a united Korea at the Opening Ceremony and the presence of a joint women’s hockey team would show the humanity of the North Korean citizens, many of whom suffer under the most brutal regime on the planet (though I’m sure some of the athletes are beneficiaries of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un’s corruption).And despite the United States’ current relationship with North Korea, I was hopeful that Americans would watch the Olympics and see the Koreans’ dream of eventual unification — the identity of a singular nation, even though it has been muddled by generations of conflict.“It would be easy to root against the athletes, considering North Korea’s threat to the United States,” I wrote in January. “But the competitors under the unified flag don’t reflect their governments.”After the opening week of the Games, however, I now have the complete opposite concern: Politics and the novelty of the situation seem to have temporarily blinded many of us from reality.American audiences were captivated when Kim Jong-un’s sister, Kim Yo-jong, attended the Opening Ceremony alongside South Korean president Moon Jae-in, the country’s most dovish president in more than a decade when it comes to relations with the North.“Kim Jong-un’s Sister Turns on the Charm, Taking Pence’s Spotlight,” a New York Times headline read. The article detailed people’s objections to Vice President Mike Pence’s cold attitude toward the North Korean envoy sent to PyeongChang, while also describing the understated charisma of Kim Yo-jong.The top comments on the article mortified me (why I dove into the cesspool of an internet comments section, I don’t know).“With all due respect to [the] charm displayed by Jong-Un’s sister for maintaining some modicum of civility at the international event, it doesn’t take much effort to outshine the bigot Pence,” one comment read.“Ms. Kim was polite, courteous and a positive representative of North Korea. VP Pence and wife Karen, on the other hand, were rude and disrespectful to all Olympians,” said another.No matter how low an opinion you may have of our current administration here in the States, don’t be naive enough to let that dislike push you to suddenly sympathize with Kim Yo-jong or any other member of the North Korean leadership. Don’t give them credit for being courteous when they literally imprison their own citizens within their country while diverting every single valuable resource to the dictatorship.It’s as simple as this: If those commenters on the New York Times website were North Koreans speaking about their own government, they would be hunted down and killed. American student Otto Warmbier died because he stole a poster. North Koreans have been executed en masse for being caught with Bibles.All this amazing fanfare we’ve been seeing — the Opening Ceremony, the joint hockey team and the hundreds-strong cheering sections chanting, “We are one!” — it’s the manifestation of a carefully planned so-called “charm offensive” from North Korea.Not to say that these gestures can’t be used as a unifying force, but if they work, the North’s plan would have backfired. It would be downright silly to assume that this third-generation totalitarian dictatorship, which has consistently spit in the face of basic human rights in its decades-long pursuit of nuclear weapons, has extended a genuine olive branch so abruptly, only for the likes of Pence to rebuff it.The best-case scenario for these Games is a wholehearted South Korean embrace of the Northern people — not its regime.I still dream of living in a unified Korea someday — the land my grandfather once lived in, before he was forced to leave his parents as a teenager and escape south to avoid being forcibly conscripted into the Communist forces. I hope these three weeks in PyeongChang bring us a step closer to that reality.But when things inevitably return to more or less the status quo at the end of the month, it won’t be because of Pence, President Donald Trump or anyone else other than the human skidmark named Kim Jong-un and those who ally with him.Ollie Jung is a senior majoring in print and digital journalism.
