Cricket News BCCI Ethics Officer Dismisses Conflict Of Interest Complaint Against Sourav Ganguly

Posted on

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: BCCI ethics officer D K Jain has dismissed a conflict of interest complaint against board president and former India captain Sourav Ganguly. Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association life member Sanjeev Gupta had filed the complaint on October 4 when Ganguly was heading the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), claiming he held multiple posts as CAB president and its representative to the BCCI AGM.As per the existing constitution, no individual can perform multiple cricketing roles at the same time. However, Ganguly took charge as BCCI president on October 23 and duly resigned from his CAB position, clearing him of any conflict.”In my view, in the light of the noted development, the issue of whether there is any “Conflict of Interest” on the part of Mr. Ganguly does not survive for the consideration of the Ethics Officer,” Jain stated in his order issued on Friday. “Resultantly, the present complaint is rendered infructuous and is disposed of, as such,” Jain added.Also Read | When Bumrah Comes Back, We Will Have One Heck Of A Bowling Attack: KohliConflict of interest is one of the most contentious issues facing Indian cricket. Before demitting office, the Committee of Administrators, in its 11th and final status report submitted to the Supreme Court, had recommended some key amendments to a “straight-jacketed” conflict of interest clause in the BCCI constitution.If the amendment is accepted by the apex court, former players with less than two-year contracts with the BCCI or state associations, will be allowed to have multiple roles. They will also be allowed to join multiple committees like the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) and won’t be barred from commentary stints. last_img read more

O’Shea upbeat ahead of European games

Posted on

first_imgHarlequins director of rugby Conor O’Shea said his side’s impressive 23-16 victory over Wasps has set them up perfectly for crucial back-to-back games against Leinster when the Champions Cup resumes in December.Quins sit top of Pool Two after two wins from two games, just above the Irish province.O’Shea said: “It’s fantastic and they will be really tough games but it’s a long way off.AdChoices广告“Our leading players face a huge four weeks with England and the LVCup coming up. It’s a chance to give the legs of Nick Easter and Nick Evans a rest.“We want to keep the feel good factor though.”Quins trailed 10-6 after Joe Simpson crossed for the hosts, but Charlie Matthews went over to earn a 13-10 half-time advantage for O’Shea’s side.A penalty try midway through the second half and a total of 13 points from the boot of Nick Evans ensured victory for Quins“We should have taken more chances but I’m delighted as it takes a good side to do that to Wasps at Adams Park,” O’Shea added.“It was a big step forward as it was a hugely physical performance from us as people say we can’t win against sides that are physical against us.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

“I thought my career was f***ed” – Newcastle United flop recalls…

Posted on

first_imgTo say that leaving Newcastle after just six months was a relief for Florian Thauvin would be an understatement. Returning to Marseille on loan the January after he left them for £14m, the French winger found a new lease of life, quickly developing into a great forward, one who was part of his country’s World Cup winning squad in Russia.Finishing last season with 22 goals and 12 assists in 35 league appearances, the 25-year-old has started this campaign in similar fashion, finding the back of the net seven times in 11 games, as well setting up three others for his teammates.Sitting down with Onze Mondial, Thauvin revealed one of the main reasons why he ended up going to St James’ Park, as well as Marseille needing the money, was because he was badly surrounded.Embed from Getty ImagesHe said: “I made some bad decisions. I can tell you today, I have a good entourage and it’s a lot easier for me to feel good. It’s all a lot simpler. I made the wrong choices in the past, no one was there to help me at that time, and that’s why I got it wrong.”Struggling from the off under Steve McClaren, Thauvin admits part of it was his fault, giving up so soon, even though he feels he wasn’t given enough time to show what he could really do.He explained: “Maybe if I’d stayed longer, I could have won a spot in the team, but I wasn’t thinking about that. I told myself I wasn’t playing and I wanted to leave, to go back to Marseille.”Asked to expand on that feeling, he continued: “Over there, I thought my career was f*cked. I came home in the evening and told my girlfriend that this was it, it was over. I wasn’t playing at Newcastle. I ended up at this club lost, no one talked to me. My phone never rang. I had my family and my girlfriend.“That’s when I decided to grab the bull by the horns and said ‘I’m going back to Marseille and I’ll make a name for myself’. And that’s what happened”.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystWill Blockchain Reduce the Global Trade Finance Gap to Reach the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals?StanChart by CNBC CatalystUndoDating.comThe Most Handsome Men In Hong Kong On This Dating SiteDating.comUndoTheTopFiveVPNEnjoy Netflix Now Without Any RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPNUndoCNN with DBS BankWhat Banks Did To Help Corporations Mitigate Future CrisesCNN with DBS BankUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoInstant Voice Translator43 Languages Instant Voice Translator Flying Off Shelves in Hong KongInstant Voice TranslatorUndolast_img read more

Eric Addo says its business as usual

Posted on

first_imgEric Addo says the Black Stars players can feel the excitement gripping Ghana ahead of the 2010 World Cup qualifier on Sunday but insist they just want to get on the pitch and do the business.A huge crowd watched the team play two different sides over 45-minute spells and Addo says their dedication to the team has been important.“Every day they are in training they are here and you could see by their passion for the Black Stars,” he tells KickOffGhana.com.“The players are aware there is a great deal of excitement in the system ahead of the game because they think we can qualifier on Sunday.”Addo has played all but one of the current qualifiers and hopes Sunday will be business as usual.“The fans may be high on their expectation levels but the most important thing is for us to get on the pitch and get the three points. After that if there is a party so be it because it will be nice to seal qualification in front of our wonderful home fans.” Ghana could secure their place at the 2010 World Cup if they beat Sudan and the game between Mali and Benin ends in a draw.Source: Kickoff.comlast_img read more

No. 18 Michigan at No. 8 Villanova: What we learned from Wolverines’ big win in 2018 title game rematch

Posted on

first_imgThe Wildcats had no answers for Michigan on either end of the floor. The Wolverines carried a 44-17 lead into the locker room and turned the game into a blowout early in the second half. No one was expecting the outcome of the game to be that one sided.  Here’s what we learned from Michigan’s big win: Related News The 2018 title game rematch between No. 18 Michigan and. No. 8 Villanova was one of the most anticipated nonconference matchups of the season.

But, the Wolverines have the potential to be one of the best teams in the country if they continue to play the way they did Wednesday.If there was one negative for the Wolverines, it was their 3-point shooting. They knocked down just five of their 17 shots from behind the arc.Villanova needs Paschall, Booth to always bring their A gamesVillanova will only go as far as Eric Paschall and Phil Booth can take them.The Wildcats will need the two upperclassmen to be their go-to scorers this season as they’re the team’s only two returning starters. It’s no coincidence that Michigan pulled away in the first half when the pair struggled. Paschall didn’t score his first basket until there was 2:14 to play before halftime while Booth shot just 2 of 5 from the field in the period.Paschall entered play averaging 18.5 points and 7.5 rebounds through the first two games. Booth was even better at 20 points per contest. But, they combined for just 19 points on 5-of-22 shooting against Michigan.Same jerseys, new facesThe names across the front of the jerseys Wednesday were the same as the 2018 title game. But, the players were almost entirely different.Both Michigan and Villanova have had major roster turnover since they last met in San Antonio in early April. The Wildcats had four players drafted – including three in the first round – while the Wolverines lost three of their top four scorers. The Wildcats’ three new starters combined for just 13 points while the Wolverines received a big contribution from freshman Ignas Brazdeikis (18 points). Charles Matthews — who tallied just six points against Villanova last season — registered a game-high 19 points.TIP JAM!Ignas Brazdeikis sends it in for @umichbball. pic.twitter.com/66zXyOp7GG— FOX College Hoops (@CBBonFOX) November 14, 2018Villanova controlled the title game from start to finish last season and cruised to a 79-62 win.

16-year-old Grace Summerhays becomes youngest winner of Utah Women’s Amateur

Kelsey Chugg chips the ball onto the green while competing against Grace Summerhays in the finals of the Utah Women’s Amateur at the Soldier Hollow Golf Course in Midway on Thursday, July 16, 2020. With the match even, Chugg had momentum on her side and at the par-4 15th hole, after missing the green short, she chipped within 2 feet. It almost looked like a gimme, but such putts aren’t given in a tense finals match and sure enough, Chugg pulled her putt slightly and it lipped around the cup as she stared in disbelief.“I don’t know what happened with that little putt,” she lamented later. “That’s golf, right?”At both 16 and 17, Chugg hit over the green on her approach shots, only to make great recovery shots. However, she couldn’t sink the putts and Summerhays closed out the match with a pair of pars. “Not my best final round. I don’t know if it was fatigue or what,” said the 29-year-old Chugg, who defeated 2018 champ Tess Blair 1 up in the morning. “The putter was the big thing. I had no confidence. I putted really well this morning but just couldn’t get it going this afternoon. Grace played fantastic and did what she had to do.” Summerhays says she plans to be back next year to defend her title. She and Chugg will both play in next month’s U.S. Women’s Amateur in Rockville, Maryland, Aug. 3-9. “I’m excited about where my game is headed,” Summerhays said.

Laura Seitz, Deseret News Laura Seitz, Deseret News Grid View MIDWAY — The Summerhays family golf legacy added another chapter this week with 16-year-old Grace Summerhays winning the Utah Women’s State Amateur tournament at Soldier Hollow Golf Course.Summerhays, who just turned 16 last week, defeated four-time champion Kelsey Chugg 3 and 1 in the finals Thursday after winning three matches over the previous 32 hours.In winning, Summerhays became the youngest winner in the 114-year history of the event, joining the accomplishment of her brother Preston Summerhays, who two years ago became the youngest golfer to win the Utah Men’s Amateur. In the process she avenged last year’s loss in the finals, by defeating last year’s winner Kerstin Fotu in the semifinals before beating Chugg in the finals.“I’m excited about where my game is headed.” — Grace SummerhaysShe talked about both of her motivations to win this year’s tournament.“It was definitely motivation, to be so close and not quite get it last year,” she said. “That was a pretty big motivation knowing there’s a lot of good players here.”And the other:“Before the start of the week, my dad (Boyd) said it was my last chance to win as the youngest, so that was motivation to win as much as anything,” she said. The Summerhays family lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, but comes up to Utah every summer to be with extended family and escape the brutal summer heat in Arizona.Grace came close to winning last year at Logan Country Club but trailed the entire match against Fotu and lost on the final hole.She came into this year’s tournament with a little more length in her game and an improved short game, particularly her putting.Summerhays held off Fotu in the morning even after the BYU sophomore drained three putts of more than 30 feet on the final five holes to push the match to the 18th hole.Against Chugg, she tied the match after four holes and took a 2-up lead after eight holes and still held the same lead after 12 holes. But Chugg won holes 13 and 14 when Summerhays missed par putts from 5 and 8 feet, respectively.

Wellington opened with a 17-7 lead and held a 31-15 advantage at the half. El Dorado would actually outscore Wellington in the second half, but could never push the game into single digits.“These girls have been playing defense like that all year,” said Jeff Frazee, Wellington eighth grade girls coach. “The key last night, as it has been all year, was their energy right out of the gate. We knew we would be getting their best shot and matching their energy was our focus. The girls accomplished and their talent took over.”Frazee said El Dorado is a good team with good character. When Airalyn Frame, who had 21 points for the game, picked up her fourth foul, El Dorado picked it up a notch.Ali Zeka was a key part of Wellington’s big victory over El Dorado on Monday.(Eric Rinehart photo).“The coaching staff was very proud of the five on the court that weathered the storm,” Frazee said. “We knew we were going to put Airily back in the game if they came within 10 regardless of time remaining, which they did.”Then Sadie Glover came up with a big basket and Frame hit a 3-pointer on the next possession and that sealed the deal for Wellington.“It means a lot that these girls set goals and accomplished them,” Frazee said. “Going undefeated is a cool experience for them but they’re also ready to accomplish great things as Crusaders in the years to com.”Frazee said the future’s bright especially if they fall in love with the weight room in the high school.“They can have championship teams in multiple sports,” Frazee said.The individual stats for the girls were: Ali Zeka 10, Airalyn Frame 23,  Nicole Peninger 6, Mercedes Glover 9.

Powered by Firework The star Brazilian centre forward Neymar is eyeing to make a return at Camp Nou in the next season. The club officials of Paris Saint Germain have kept their silence over the future of Neymar. According to several reports in Spain, Neymar is desperate to join his old friend Lionel Messi at Barcelona. Advertisement There was no disclosure of the release clause of Neymar by the club management of Paris Saint Germain in the previous season. According to various sources, if any club wish to go for Neymar, they can’t buy him until 2020 and they have to pay the release clause around £215 million which is very close to his transfer fee worth £220 million. If the club want to buy in the next season, they have to go friendly terms with Paris Saint Germain which is very unlikely to happen. Advertisement Real Madrid are targeting to get Neymar in their squad from last summer transfer window. But according to former Barcelona full back Juliano Belletti, Neymar will wish to join Barcelona over Real Madrid any day. He said, “I think that if Neymar came back to Spain, he would do so with Barca.” “I don’t think he will spend many years in Paris, but I don’t think he will go to Madrid. The relationship between Barça and Brazilian players is incredible.”Advertisement The rumours are suggesting that, the President of Barcelona have already talked with the Barcelona players about the possibility of the return of Neymar at Camp Nou. Lionel Messi & Co have no problem with Neymar joining his old club. They will be ready to greet him again in their side if the Brazilian centre forward wish to make a comeback at Camp Nou.
