Indian Premier League Shardul Thakur, the slower ball and the pain of the one-run loss in IPL 2019

first_img New Delhi: One run. That was the margin of defeat for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL 2019 final against Mumbai Indians at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium on Sunday. It was a repeat of 2017 when Mumbai Indians had won the IPL title for the third time against Rising Pune Supergiants at the same venue. In the 2017 final, there was a run-out which gave Mumbai Indians the title. In 2019, it was a redemption act by Lasith Malinga as he managed to defend nine runs in the final over to hand Chennai Super Kings their fifth loss in the final.The batsman who was facing Malinga at the time was Shardul Thakur. The youngster had been promoted ahead of Harbhajan Singh and had gotten the equation down to two runs off one ball when he had squeezed a couple. Malinga bowled a slow, dipping yorker and Thakur, batting in the pressure of the final, walked across and looked to nudge the deliver to the leg side but fell over and was trapped plumb in front. For Thakur, the one-run loss was a repeat of the pain he had suffered when Chennai Super Kings took on Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M Chinnaswamy stadium during the 39th match of the tournament. Mumbai Indians became the first team to win the IPL title four times.Chennai Super Kings lost in the final for the fifth time.This was MS Dhoni’s sixth loss as a player in the IPL. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. In the game against Virat Kohli’s side, Chennai Super Kings had stumbled in their chase of 162 and they needed 26 runs in the final over which was bowled by Umesh Yadav. MS Dhoni was on strike and Thakur was at the non-striker’s end. The Chennai Super Kings skipper had set-up the platform for a mind-numbing assault. The first ball was hit for a four and then Dhoni launched three sixes and a couple as Chennai Super Kings needed two runs off one ball.When Umesh ran to bowl, Dhoni was in the zone. The bowler bowled a slow off-cutter and Dhoni missed. Thakur hared across to steal a bye but Parthiv Patel’s direct hit resulted in his run-out as Chennai Super Kings lost by one run. Thakur had not started running as soon as the bowler delivered the ball due to the earlier controversy generated by Ravichandran Ashwin in his mankading of Jos Buttler in the previous games. Had the mankading controversy not taken place, Thakur could have probably made it.Speaking about the match, Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni said there were mistakes committed. “The middle order wasn’t great, and today it was very funny as to how both teams were only passing on the trophy from one team to the other. Both teams made a lot of mistakes, the team that made one lesser mistake won,” Dhoni said.Both teams did make mistakes. However, for Thakur, he will have to live through the pain of been at the losing end of both one-run margins.last_img read more

Coleman returns to city after brief stay at Gateway

first_imgColeman has participated in preseason scrimmages with the team and has participated in all team workouts—minus one week to sort out his enrollment—since his return to the district.“Jaylen is fully eligible to play with the USO team and actually did a great job during our preseason scrimmages,” Obama Academy athletic director Andre McGee said. “We’re really excited to have him back in position with us and we believe that he is going to do everything that is expected for his pursuit of an athletic scholarship.”USO head coach, Lewis Berry, who coached Coleman at Peabody the past three seasons, was unreachable for comment.“It feels good to be back to what’s familiar,” Coleman said. “My experience at Gateway was great. Coach (Terry) Smith was one of the best coaches that I ever had. I’d made friends there and the move is bittersweet. But it’s the best one for me.”In a brief statement Smith said that Coleman “with his family issue (and with their discretion) has decided to leave the program.”He is currently being looked at by as many as 10 major college programs, including Virginia, Purdue, West Virginia, and Pitt. But Coleman really wants to be a Cincinnati Bearcat.“When I visited the school this summer, I really felt comfortable there,” he said. “Out of each of the schools that are interested in me, I think I really want to go (to the University of Cincinnati).”His stepmother Tashika Cox said upon arrival back in the district, Pittsburgh Public Schools gave him two options for attending school.“Since Obama Academy is a magnet program, we had to notify the program beforehand if Jaylen was going to be attending there,” she said. “Since we were obviously too late to make that decision, they gave him the option to enroll in the Boys Academy at Westinghouse or University Prep. Jaylen really wanted to play for the USO team, so he chose UPrep.”Coleman, known for his running ability, will, as he has in the past, also play at running back for USO. A situation that he described as “back to normal.”(Malik Vincent can be reached at [email protected]) by Malik VincentAccording to USO (U. Prep, Sci. Tech and Obama) for senior linebacker Jaylen Colman, “there is no place like home.”His stay at Gateway High School in Monroeville was cut short by what he described as “family issues that forced him to move back into the city.”The talented multi-position former Peabody football star will attend Pittsburgh University Prep at Milliones for the 2011-12 school year.

Buffalo Bills cheerleaders suspend operations

first_imgIn this Nov. 17, 2013, photo, Buffalo Bills cheerleaders perform during the Bills’ NFL football game against the New York Jets in Orchard Park, N.Y. (AP Photo/Heather Ainsworth)BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Pack up the pom-poms in Buffalo, because the Bills will be playing without the support of their official cheerleaders this year.Stephanie Mateczun, whose company manages the Buffalo Jills cheerleading squad, said Thursday she has suspended operations through at least the end of the season. The decision was made two days after five former Jills filed a lawsuit complaining they worked hundreds of hours for free, and were subjected to groping and sexual comments.The civil action was filed in state Supreme Court and seeks unspecified back pay and legal fees. It names Mateczun’s company, Stejon Productions Corp., the Bills, and the Jills’ former manager, Citadel Communications Co., as defendants. Stejon took over managing the cheerleaders in 2011.Mateczun is in the process of hiring legal representation, and declined further comment.The Bills have been made aware of the Jills’ decision to suspend operations, but otherwise declined comment.Lawyer Frank Dolce, who represents the five cheerleaders, said the decision to suspend operations won’t affect his case because it addresses past complaints.Dolce, however, did question Mateczun’s motives, saying her decision to suspend the squad was unnecessary.“If they cease operations, they will blame the lawsuit for the destruction of the Jills, when that was not intended at all,” Dolce said, noting there is not much money at stake in the lawsuit.“We love the Bills. We love the Jills,” he said. “We do not love the travesty of its management that has occurred over the last few years.”According to the Buffalo Jills Alumni website, the squad was formed in 1967, eight years after the Bills were established as founding members of the American Football League. In 1986, the Bills relinquished managing the cheerleaders to private companies.Cheerleaders have launched similar suits against the Oakland Raiders and Cincinnati Bengals.The case against the Bills claims the Jills are wrongly classified as independent contractors and subjected to policies that violate the state’s $8 per hour minimum wage law and other workplace rules.The Jills aren’t paid for games or practices and have to make 20-35 appearances, most of which are unpaid, at community and charity events each season, the lawsuit said. On top of that, they have to pay $650 for their uniforms and are not reimbursed for travel or other expenses, the cheerleaders said.All five cheerleaders said they had to take a “jiggle test” so that Mateczun, Stejon’s president, could assess their physiques. And Mateczun, they said, controlled everything from their hair and nail polish color to what they could post on Facebook.The time and expense, as well as rules governing their personal lives, far exceeded what they signed on for, the women said.Dolce and his clients hope their legal action leads to policy changes within the Bills’ organization that ensure future cheerleaders are paid and treated better.“A decision to disband the Jills as an entity is a tremendous mistake for community spirit,” Dolce said. “We do not feel bad that Stejon Productions has ceased operations. We think that’s a good thing. We just hope the Bills don’t trivialize the Jills because of the poor management of them.”___Associated Press writer Carolyn Thompson contributed to this report.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img read more
