Warner slams unbeaten 93 as Sunrisers reach IPL final

first_img FOUR FOURS Earlier, Bravo hit a cameo 20 off 10 deliveries with four fours to help Lions get up to 162 for seven off their 20 overs, after they were sent in. Australian Aaron Finch top-scored with 50 off 32 balls while New Zealander Brendon McCullum struggled for 32 off 29 deliveries. Smith, batting at number six, made just one before cutting a long hop from Aussie seamer Ben Cutting to Shikhar Dhawan at point, at 83 for five in the 13th over. Sunrisers will now take on Chris Gayle’s Royal Challengers Bangalore in tomorrow’s final. NEW DELHI, India (CMC): West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo bowled a poor penultimate over, and Australian star David Warner capitalised, to propel Sunrisers Hyderabad into the final of the Indian Premier League (IPL), with an exciting four-wicket victory over Gujarat Lions in the final play-off game here yesterday. Chasing 163 for victory at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Sunrisers reached their target with four balls to spare, with captain and opener Warner stroking a sublime, unbeaten 93. The game was in the balance with Sunrisers requiring 24 runs at the start of the 19th over but Bravo conceded 19 runs, to squander any advantage Lions had. Up until then, the Trinidadian had bowled superbly to grab two for 13 for his first three overs of medium pace. Bravo scored 18 from 20 balls and picked up two wickets for 14 runs. But Warner smashed the first and fourth deliveries for off-side boundaries as Bravo provided generous room outside off-stump, and Bipul Sharma virtually secured the result when he carted the final delivery of the over for a straight six.With five needed from the last over, Warner punched the first two balls to the square boundary to achieve victory. All told, Warner struck 11 fours and three sixes off 58 balls, an innings that rallied Sunrisers after they slumped to 84 for five in the 13th over.last_img read more

Trump warns countries that might oppose North American World Cup bid

first_img“It would be a shame if countries that we always support were to lobby against the U.S. bid. Why should we be supporting these countries when they don’t support us (including at the United Nations)?”Morocco is the only other nation bidding for the 2026 football showpiece against the combined North American bid.World football’s governing body FIFA will announce the winning bid after a vote on June 13 in Moscow, ahead of the start of this year’s World Cup in Russia.Noel Le Graet, president of the French Football Association, has said France will back Morocco.Le Graet said this month that Africa, where the World Cup has only been hosted once before — in South Africa in 2010 — “has often been neglected”.Ahmad Ahmad, president of the Confederation of African Football, has urged European countries to support Morocco.In an exclusive interview with AFP this week, he appealed to European self-interest saying: “Vote for us and we’ll vote for you next time.”While Morocco can expect widespread support from African countries, the 10 countries of the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) said this month in a joint statement they had decided “unanimously” to support the North American bid.The North American bid has long been viewed as the front-runner to stage the tournament, thanks to its well-developed infrastructure.But there have been concerns that Trump’s comments on such issues as immigration could hurt the bid.US law enforcement were also responsible for exposing systemic corruption in FIFA in 2015, but US Soccer Federation chief Carlos Cordeiro said in March that he didn’t believe anti-US sentiment would be a factor in the vote.“This is not geopolitics this is football,” he said.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000President Donald Trump says it would be a shame if countries that the US always supports were to lobby against the US’ FIFA World Cup bid. © AFP / NICHOLAS KAMMWASHINGTON, United States, Apr 27 – US President Donald Trump tweeted support for the North American FIFA World Cup bid Thursday, and hinted nations who oppose it could face political repercussions.“The U.S. has put together a STRONG bid w/ Canada & Mexico for the 2026 World Cup,” Trump tweeted.last_img read more

France’s Albert Fert and Germany’s Peter Gruenberg independently described giant magnetoresistance in 1988, then saw the electronics industry apply it in disks with incredible amounts of storage. “I can hardly think of an application that has a bigger bang than the magnetic hard drive industry,” said Phil Schewe, a physicist and spokesman for the American Institute of Physics. “Every one of us probably owns three or four or five devices, probably more, that depend on billions of bits of information stored on something the size of a dime.” Fert, 69, is the scientific director of the Mixed Unit for Physics at CNRS/Thales in Orsay, France. Gruenberg, 68, is a professor at the Institute of Solid State Research in the west German city of Juelich. They will share the $1.5million prize. Gruenberg told reporters gathered at his institute that he was not too surprised to win the Nobel. “Because I have received a lot of awards, I was often asked, `When will the big award come?”‘ Gruenberg said.

DDTV: DONEGAL PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURES INCREDIBLE CORNCRAKE VIDEO

first_imgBY RONAN MCLAUGHLIN, PHOTOGRAPHER: Formerly an extremely common summer visitor, Corncrakes have suffered drastic population declines this century and are threatened with global extinction.Now only present in small numbers in the Shannon Callows, north Donegal and western parts of Mayo and Connaught.This decline is due in most part to intensive farming practices including early mowing to make silage and mechanised hay making practices which have destroyed nests and driven Corncrakes from old habitats. Now Corncrakes are confined to areas where difficult terrain precludes the use of machinery and where traditional late haymaking still takes place.This is perhaps Ireland’s most iconic bird, and gets my vote for our National bird, I took this video yesterday at Malin Head, Co. Donegal. An amazing experience.www.facebook.com/ronanmclaughlinphotography DDTV: DONEGAL PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURES INCREDIBLE CORNCRAKE VIDEO was last modified: June 6th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DDTV: DONEGAL PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURES INCREDIBLE CORNCRAKE VIDEOlast_img read more

India seeks people who are ill with bird flu

NAVAPUR, India – Indian health officials went door to door Monday searching for people sickened by the deadly bird flu strain, while hundreds of German troops disposed of dead wild birds in a desperate attempt to contain the fast-moving disease in Europe. In Brussels, Belgium, European Union agriculture ministers discussed ways to combat bird flu – such as by vaccinating poultry – as the disease spread to a half-dozen EU nations. Malaysia announced the deaths of 40 chickens from the lethal H5N1 strain, the first reported cases of the virus in the country in more than a year. In Hong Kong on Tuesday, a dead magpie found near a street flower market was confirmed to have been infected by the H5N1 virus, the government said. It was the latest in a spate of bird deaths from the strain in recent weeks.

Local officials near the affected area reported that a 27-year-old poultry farm owner died of bird-flulike symptoms, though tests had yet to determine the cause of death. Samples from at least eight other people hospitalized for flulike symptoms near Navapur also were being tested, and results were expected later this week. Inspectors visited homes and farms surrounding Navapur, a town of 30,000 people, searching for signs of illness and making sure even chickens being raised at private homes were killed and properly disposed of. “It’s like a war – they come in completely covered with masks and goggles and check if the carcasses are disposed properly,” said Ghulam Vhora, a Navapur poultry farmers association official. Since early Sunday, more than 200,000 chickens have been slaughtered around Navapur, a major poultry farming region where the H5N1 strain of bird flu was found in some of 30,000 dead chickens. Checkpoints also have been set up to stop people carrying poultry out of the area. last_img read more

Half-time: Chelsea 1 Man Utd 2

first_imgJuan Mata’s free-kick late in the first half gave Chelsea a boost after they had found themselves two down after only 11 minutes following David Luiz’s own goal and Robin van Persie’s simple finish.Manchester United went ahead when the ball dribbled over the line after Van Persie’s shot struck the post and then the unfortunate Luiz.Luck went against the Premier League leaders on that occasion, but they had no-one but themselves to blame for the second goal.Antonio Valencia had time on the left and after Chelsea failed to clear the Ecuadorian’s low cross, Van Persie was able to smash home from five yards.Chelsea ended the half strongly and almost scored when defender Jonny Evans turned John Obi Mikel’s cross onto his own post and Gary Cahill went close with a header from the resulting corner.Visiting keeper David De Gea then produced a fine save to deny Fernando Torres but was beaten by Mata’s curling effort.Before the game, United’s Rio Ferdinand shook hands with Ashley Cole following speculation about whether he would snub the Blues left-back during the traditional pre-match routine.Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Cech; Ivanovic, Luiz, Cahill, Cole; Mikel, Ramires; Hazard, Oscar, Mata, Torres.
