England got it wrong and must learn quickly, says Root

first_imgBy Ed OsmondLONDON (Reuters) – England captain Joe Root admitted his team had been comprehensively outplayed by an inexperienced Pakistan side in their nine-wicket loss to the tourists in the first Test at Lord’s.England were bowled out for 184 on the first day after Root won the toss and never recovered as they suffered their first defeat in a May Test at the home of cricket following series losses in Australia and New Zealand.“We got it wrong, we know that,” Root told reporters on Sunday. “These conditions suit us as well. It’s a talented team and there are guys in there who will do great things for England.” Pakistan scored 363 in their first innings and England collapsed to 110 for six in their second before a seventh-wicket partnership of 126 between Jos Buttler and Dom Bess spared the embarrassment of an innings defeat and took the match into the fourth day.“We have been out-performed in all three departments, we have to be better,” Root said. “There have been a number of collapses recently and we have to find a way as a group.” The last time England lost the first test in a home summer was in 1995 against West Indies and they only have four days to regroup before the second and final match at Headingley starting on Friday.“We have to be more patient and take our opportunities when we get them. We can do that next week and we must take that chance,” Root said.“We can’t ignore this, we have to learn from it quickly. A lot of the things that we do are very good.”England, fifth in the world Test rankings, are unlikely to make changes to their side, although batsmen Mark Stoneman and Dawid Malan are under particular pressure following lean runs. “We are ambitious, we want to win but sometimes we make poor decisions,” Root said.“It’s about the number of runs you score, not how long it takes you and maybe we need to absorb a bit more. You have to recognise the right times to attack.”England’s last home Test series loss came in 2014 against Sri Lanka and they have won five and two drawn two since. They host top-ranked India in a five-Test series starting in August.

I would’ve loved to see them go more vintage than modern (NAU turned me into a hipster, apparently) — it would fit the university and town so much better. At the end of the day, though, this rebrand will help sell the university to a wider demographic, and I’m sure that’s why they did it. They’ve made no secret of trying to compete with U of A and ASU for enrollment the last 10 years, and the school has grown dramatically even since I graduated 3 years ago. I’m sure this rebrand will help legitimize the sports a little. 0 Share this post Share this post Posted April 29, 2014 Hopelessly Optimistic Detroit Fan hettinger_rl 423 Location:PHX, AZ GeauxColonels drdougfresh 690 Does anyone know who designed them?

Ed Frankovic: Time off was good for Caps

first_imgEd Frankovic joined WNST to give a Capitals update as they prepare to face the Flyers on Wednesday night. They have had some down time after the blizzard impacted their schedule, and Ed believes that the time off was a positive for the team.“I’m actually looking at it as a positive,” Frankovic said. “John Carlson’s been banged up, their best defender. Brooks Orpik’s been out. Yeah, they’ve missed games against Anaheim and Pittsburgh at home, and they would have been fun, but they’ll reschedule those. I think it came at a pretty good time”To hear all of Ed Frankovic’s chat with Nestor, listen right here:Audio Playerhttp://c631904.r4.cf2.rackcdn.com/Ed%20Frankovic%20Caps%20012516%20-%201:25:16,%208.58%20AM.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.last_img read more

FIFA Reject Chelsea’s Transfer Ban Appeal

first_imgChelsea have lost their appeal against FIFA’s decision to ban them from signing players during the next two transfer windows.The only change to the ban, until the end of January 2020, is that the Blues can sign under-16 players from the UK during the suspension period.FIFA took action against Chelsea after an investigation into their signing of foreign under-18 players.The club can now appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.“The FIFA appeal committee has decided to partially uphold the appeal lodged by Chelsea,” FIFA said in a statement.“This ban applied to the club as a whole – with the exception of the women’s and futsal teams – and did not prevent the release of players.”FIFA said it found breaches in 29 cases out of the 92 investigated.RelatedManchester City Get Slap On The Wrist For Breaking FIFA Transfer RulesAugust 13, 2019In “England”FIFA Bans Chelsea, Drops Heavy Fine On English FAFebruary 22, 2019In “England”English Giants Chelsea And Manchester City Under FIFA Investigation For This Reason.September 21, 2017In “England”last_img read more

US reviewing airstrike that corresponds to site where 200 Iraqi civilians allegedly died

first_img Related Main_sail/iStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — The U.S. military admitted that an airstrike in Iraq on March 17 corresponds to a site where 200 civilians allegedly died, but said it is still assessing the particulars of the strike and the validity of allegations of civilian casualties.“An initial review of strike data from March 16-23 indicates that, at the request of the Iraqi Security Forces, the coalition struck ISIS fighters and equipment, March 17, in West Mosul at the location corresponding to allegations of civilian casualties,” stated a media release from the task force Saturday. A formal review of the March 17 operation “is underway to determine the facts surrounding this strike and the validity of the allegation of civilian casualties,” the release said.The military’s release came after it earlier announced a review of whether any of three airstrikes in Syria and Iraq over the past week were linked to reported deaths of hundreds of civilians.In addition to the March 17 airstrike in western Mosul that reportedly killed 200 civilians, Central Command also said this week it is reviewing a March 16 airstrike near a mosque in al-Jinnah, Syria, that is said to have killed dozens, and an airstrike Monday, March 20, on a school building outside of Raqqa, Syria, that may have also killed dozens of civilians fleeing local fighting.The March 17 strike targeted three adjoining houses. Local news reports indicate ISIS may have used civilians in the area as human shields in an effort to guard against airstrikes on the buildings. The Iraqi military’s media operations center has claimed that ISIS was responsible for the civilian deaths.Col. Joseph Scrocca, a spokesman for the operation against ISIS in Iraq, Syria and beyond, noted on Friday that ISIS has previously demonstrated disregard for civilians and civilian facilities by “using human shields, and fighting from protected sites such as schools, hospitals and religious sites.”Scrocca added there have been instances where ISIS forced families from their homes to booby-trap them with explosives to delay Iraqi forces.The Central Command’s release on Saturday asserted that the coalition fighting ISIS “respects human life, which is why we are assisting our Iraqi partner forces in their effort to liberate their lands from ISIS brutality. Our goal has always been for zero civilian casualties, but the coalition will not abandon our commitment to our Iraqi partners because of ISIS’s inhuman tactics terrorizing civilians.”“Coalition forces comply with the Law of Armed Conflict and take all reasonable precautions during the planning and execution of airstrikes to reduce the risk of harm to civilians,” the statement said.The U.S.-led coalition has conducted more than 19,000 airstrikes against ISIS in Iraq and Syria since the summer of 2014.U.S. Central Command has also opened a credibility assessment into an airstrike Monday night, March 20, that targeted a school building near Raqqa, ISIS’s de facto capital inside Syria.The activist group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights alleges that an airstrike on the school killed 33 civilians who had been seeking shelter from local fighting.And, U.S. Central Command is conducting a full investigation and credibility assessment of an airstrike on March 16 in the village of al-Jinnah in northwestern Syria.U.S. officials said that airstrike killed dozens of al-Qaeda militants who had gathered for a meeting in a building near a mosque across the street. They emphasized that the mosque was not struck and that the building was not affiliated with the mosque. However, locals said that dozens of worshipers were killed in the airstrike and that the targeted building was, in fact, a mosque.A military spokesman confirmed that earlier this week Gen. Joseph Votel, the commander of U.S. Central Command, ordered a full investigation into the circumstances of the mission.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
