CSK crush RCB in a low-scoring IPL season opener

first_imgCHENNAI Super Kings (CSK) rode on a stunning show by spinners Imran Tahir, Harbhajan Singh and Ravindra Jadeja to thrash Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by seven wickets in the opening match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai yesterday.After opting to bowl, CSK bundled out RCB for a paltry 70 runs. Ambati Rayudu top-scored for RCB with 28 runs, strengthening his case for India’s number four slot in the World Cup squad, as the home team chased down the small target with 14 balls to spare.RCB, in defeat, maintained their inglorious record against CSK and also had the ignominy of ending with the sixth lowest total in the league.Skipper MS Dhoni’s move to open with Harbhajan (3-20 in 4 overs) paid rich dividends as he removed rival skipper Virat Kohli (6) in the fourth over and RCB never recovered from that early blow.Dhoni’s reading of the pitch was immaculate as a top score of 29 from Parthiv Patel was a testimony to that and the time that CSK needed to score the runs.Once Harbhajan’s finger-spinners had inflicted a telling damage on the psyche of the RCB line-up, Tahir tormented the visitors even more with his googlies that killed the contest in the first half. With so much assistance for spinners, Ravindra Jadeja wasn’t going to be left behind, finishing with 2-15 in 4 overs.Having gauged the pace of the pitch, Harbhajan altered the length of his deliveries effectively and also reduced the pace at times to trouble the batsmen. There are times Harbhajan dropped his length but the slowness of the track made batsmen indecisive.While he was lucky as his off-break dropped short but Kohli’s mistimed pull-shot was taken by Jadeja at mid-wicket boundary.Moeen Ali slog-swept Harbhajan for a six but that was all that he could manage with a length delivery stopping on him as he tried to check his drive and a loopy return catch was gleefully accepted.AB de Villiers (9) wanted to hit out of trouble and was first dropped by Imran Tahir and, off the very next ball, was caught by Jadeja at mid-wicket boundary. With Shimron Hetmyer (0) getting run-out needlessly, RCB were in the dumps even before halfway stage.It was the perfect platform for Tahir and Jadeja, who were unplayable with the pitch offering reasonable turn and it only helped that the lower-order’s confidence was shot to pieces.The way each batsman reacted to Tahir’s googlies was different. Left-hander Shivam Dube (2) didn’t read the googly and edged to slips. Navdeep Saini padded one in his intent to defend while Yuzvendra Chahal holed out at deep square leg trying to hit out of trouble.Pathiv Patel (29) was the top-scorer and the last man dismissed but hardly looked convincing. The pitch wasn’t an easy one to bat on but 70 was too small a total to defend for RCB even though they stretched CSK for nearly 18 overs.Suresh Raina (19) didn’t score much but he did complete 5 000 runs in IPL when he reached an individual score of 14. An IPL ‘legend’, Raina is the first player in tournament’s history to achieve the feat. (PTI)last_img read more

Gullikson displays high ceiling during first year

first_imgBRYAN FAUST/Herald photoRecently freshman walk-on Kevin Gullikson has been seeing increased playing time on the court and many are taking notice to his upstart career. With Gullikson being a freshman, it wouldn’t be unfair to think that it would take time before he would feel comfortable out on the court. But his playing time has shown the opposite, as he has become a great asset for the team on the court.”I’ve learned so much from all the guys and coaches,” Gulikson said. “I’ve been pretty comfortable coming in and being able to [play]”Basketball players often have a hard time transitioning from the high school level to the intense college style. However, Gullikson feels he’s adjusted just fine.”Things that would maybe go unnoticed here [college] are just normal in the Big Ten, where they’d be called fouls in high school,” he explained. “All of the banging that’s done in the post … It gets you a lot more tired, and you have to be a lot tougher.” Though he has adjusted, Gullikson still has room for improvement.”The big thing I’m going to work on is getting stronger,” Gulikson said. “Also my outside shot and maybe my quickness and footwork. So maybe I can bring a little more to the table both on the perimeter and in the low post.”Like most underclassmen, Gullikson looks up to players, such as junior captain Alando Tucker, who can fire up a team and also has great work ethic. Gullikson himself would like to mimic that someday.”Guys who just go in there and just work their tales off and try to bring some of energy, that’s kind of what I try and do, guys who work hard like that,” he said.Though Gullikson has room to grow, one thing he has mastered is hard work.”For a guy who probably didn’t expect to be playing a lot this year, he comes into practice and he works his butt off, and you know everything is paying off,” junior Kammron Taylor said. “I’m really impressed with what he’s doing right now. He doesn’t have the height, but he has the drive and determination to stop the other big men. I think he’s been doing a good job; he’s been that spark off the bench.””You look at Kevin Gulikson out there working, and what he is doing defensively; he has been so impressive with his energy,” UW head coach Bo Ryan said of Gullikson, following the Iowa game.Not only does Gullikson work hard on the court, he also excels in the classroom. Gullikson was recruited by a plethora of Ivy League schools and could have easily gone anywhere he wanted to. But, Gulikson passed on the chance, as he wanted to go to Wisconsin to be challenged not only as a walk-on, but also academically. “Education has always been important, but I wanted to play at the highest level for basketball and I wanted the biggest challenge I could get,” he said.”I like the atmosphere of a college town where athletics are so important to all of the people.” Gulikson added. “It’s fun being a part of it and having such support at all of the games.”last_img read more

Syracuse Hammerheads to celebrate 45 years of club rugby in October

first_imgForty-five years ago, a bar-side meeting of two Syracuse University graduate students gave life to what has since become one of the most successful club sports teams the school has ever seen.It was this alcohol-infused conversation that led to the inception of the SU Hammerheads club rugby team, which celebrates 45 years this October of passion for the sport and the culture it promotes.On one side of the table at Lee’s on Westcott Street was the relative elder John Mauro, a 25-year-old graduate of the University of Notre Dame and a two-year Army veteran. Opposite Mauro sat Peter Baigent, an Englishman, first-year graduate student and Dellplain Hall resident adviser. The two men met at Lee’s to share a beer and discuss what had brought them together in the first place: a furious passion for the sport of rugby.“Rugby is more than just a sport — it’s a whole philosophy of living,” Mauro said. “It’ll draw you if it’s for you. It’ll find you.”Mauro himself was found by the sport during his undergraduate tenure at Notre Dame, when the university formed a club team during his freshman year in 1961. When he decided to enroll part-time at Syracuse’s University College to earn his MBA in 1969, he was disappointed to discover that rugby hadn’t reached SU.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textUndeterred, Mauro took out an ad in The Daily Orange calling for his fellow students to come out and form a club of their own, regardless of any rugby experience. After a week, he received just one lone response, but Baigent turned out to be all the team would need to get on its feet.Using his connections as an RA, Baigent assembled a team composed mostly of students living in Dellplain Hall and reserved some practice time at Hendricks Field. Meanwhile, Mauro focused his efforts on finding competition, eventually setting up contests with teams from the University of Rochester and State University of New York at Buffalo.After a winless first season, Baigent and Mauro decided to enlist the help of Bob Wilson, an Englishman one year younger than Baigent. They lured Wilson with an RA position and the allure of American women, whom Baigent promised would soon fall head over heels for him.With Wilson aboard in 1970, the team quickly improved. In 1972, Baigent and Wilson took the team on an English tour, where the squad faced off with talented programs that gave the Hammerheads a new perspective on rugby. They won the Upstate Tournament the next season, setting the tone for the future success of the program.Forty-one years after that first championship, the majority of the present-day team’s players come to college with little to no rugby experience. Captain Angus Bishop estimates a 75-25 split between those like Mauro who stumble upon the sport and those who come to college looking to participate in rugby.“That’s one of the things that makes the Hammerhead culture so great,” Bishop explained. “We try to be as inclusive as possible. No matter what you are or what you be, everyone is accepted. We’re always going to be welcoming you with open arms. It’s the more the merrier.”The team that’s won six New York state championships since 1998 also bonds on international tours every two years, cross-state road trips for games and boisterous post-match parties that often include the opponent.“You may not see somebody for 10, 20 or 30 years, but when you do see them, it’s like it was yesterday,” Mauro said. “You start telling the same old stories that you made together.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 16, 2014 at 12:13 amlast_img read more

FIFA denies Barcelona request for exception to transfer rules after Vermaelen’s injury

first_imgFIFA says Barcelona will not get special permission to sign a defender after Thomas Vermaelen was sidelined by injury for several months.Barcelona sought an emergency signing under “exceptional situations” in Spanish federation rules, despite facing a one-year FIFA transfer embargo.FIFA says it told Barcelona on Monday that its disciplinary committee did not “conceive an exception” for signing players “outside the official periods of registration.”FIFA’s ban was imposed because Barcelona broke rules on international signings of young players. It takes effect in January, pending an appeal verdict this month from the Court of Arbitration for Sport.Barcelona signed Vermaelen in the off-season when FIFA froze the ban until appeals were completed.The Belgium international has not played since his reported 19 million euro ($25.4 million) move from Arsenal.last_img read more

March Madness 2019: Odds to make each round, win NCAA Tournament

first_imgHigher seeded teams facing uphill battle to the Final Four Generally seeding and probabilities to reach the Final Four are well aligned. The same applies when we compare championship probabilities to seeding in different regions. Few teams seeded No. 4 in their regions will have tough roads to reach the Sweet Sixteen. Kansas and Kansas State have under 35 percent odds to proceed to the Sweet 16. Their chances to reach the championship game are around 1-2 percent. Chances to win it all The top team to win the tournament based on simulations is Virginia followed by Gonzaga. Other 1-seeds in Duke and North Carolina have around an 8 percent probability to win it all, about half of the win probability of Virginia. Even though Duke has the highest probability to reach the Final Four and win the championship from the East region, simulations show that in head-to-head games, Michigan State will pull the upset and go forward. Betting preview Duke has been the big favorite to win the tournament by sportsbooks, with odds moving between 2-1 to 4-1. By picking Virginia (6-1), North Carolina (8-1), Gonzaga (8-1), Kentucky (10-1) and Michigan State (15-1), a bettor would make money if any of these teams win the tournament. The probability for one of these five teams to win it is around 55 percent. Speaking of odds, AccuScore has simulated all possible matchups thousands of times to come up with probabilities for each remaining team to proceed to each round and win the national championship. And to what may come as a surprise to many, Duke is not the favorite to bring home the hardware according to those simulations.Whether rooting for a Cinderella or a heavy favorite, what are the chances that a team will advance to the next round?AccScore will update the probabilities of each team’s chance to advance after every round in the table below.SN’s BRACKET GUIDES: SOUTH | EAST | WEST | MIDWEST2019 NCAA Tournament oddsTeamSeedRound of 32Sweet 16Elite 8Final 4FinalChampVirginia198.0%86.1%66.2%44.5%26.6%16.6%Gonzaga197.9%83.6%63.3%38.9%22.8%13.9%North Carolina198.0%77.6%53.2%30.0%17.7%8.9%Duke198.1%81.2%54.5%32.0%17.0%8.2%Michigan State298.0%73.0%50.0%29.1%16.0%7.9%Kentucky298.0%74.3%44.5%25.6%14.5%7.2%Michigan298.0%65.1%38.2%20.2%10.7%5.9%Tennessee292.0%61.8%39.1%19.1%9.5%5.0%Houston391.2%65.3%35.3%19.4%10.2%4.8%Texas Tech398.1%64.7%33.3%16.6%8.1%4.1%Purdue377.9%49.3%24.8%10.8%4.7%2.2%LSU381.0%50.0%22.5%10.2%4.3%1.6%Auburn566.0%39.3%17.4%7.8%3.6%1.5%Florida State471.5%45.5%17.2%7.7%3.3%1.4%Virginia Tech469.9%40.9%17.8%8.4%3.5%1.3%Mississippi State578.3%41.7%17.1%7.5%3.0%1.1%Nevada765.1%27.2%13.4%5.6%2.4%1.1%Wisconsin562.8%37.1%12.7%5.9%2.4%1.0%Cincinnati763.0%26.8%13.9%5.5%2.2%1.0%Kansas467.7%35.0%13.6%5.6%2.4%0.8%Villanova658.0%28.0%11.9%4.3%1.5%0.6%Kansas State466.9%34.8%10.7%4.6%1.6%0.6%Louisville760.1%19.7%10.0%4.1%1.6%0.5%Buffalo651.7%20.2%7.9%2.9%1.1%0.4%Iowa State457.9%21.7%8.2%3.1%1.1%0.4%Marquette557.7%26.7%7.7%2.8%0.9%0.3%Wofford1059.2%18.8%7.5%2.8%1.1%0.3%Maryland650.0%23.6%8.2%3.1%1.0%0.3%Utah State855.7%13.9%6.3%2.2%0.8%0.2%Virginia Commonwealth861.8%14.4%6.3%2.2%0.7%0.2%Belmont1150.0%20.0%5.7%1.7%0.5%0.1%Arizona State1148.3%14.9%4.9%1.4%0.4%0.1%Ole Miss854.9%8.9%4.1%1.5%0.4%0.1%Syracuse849.2%8.0%3.6%1.2%0.3%0.1%Baylor950.8%7.7%3.5%1.1%0.3%0.1%Saint Mary’s1142.0%14.4%4.5%1.0%0.2%0.1%Oregon1237.2%16.3%2.9%0.9%0.2%0.0%New Mexico State1234.0%14.3%3.7%1.0%0.2%0.0%Washington944.3%8.0%3.2%0.9%0.2%0.0%Florida1034.9%7.1%2.2%0.5%0.1%0.0%Murray State1242.3%15.3%2.6%0.7%0.2%0.0%Northeastern1332.3%11.5%2.5%0.6%0.1%0.0%Ohio State1142.1%10.1%2.4%0.6%0.2%0.0%Iowa1037.0%8.8%3.1%0.7%0.1%0.0%Vermont1328.5%12.5%2.0%0.4%0.1%0.0%Minnesota1039.9%6.6%2.5%0.6%0.1%0.0%Oklahoma945.1%4.6%1.8%0.5%0.1%0.0%UC Irvine1333.1%11.9%1.5%0.4%0.1%0.0%Saint Louis1330.1%11.7%2.6%0.7%0.1%0.0%Old Dominion1422.1%8.4%2.0%0.3%0.1%0.0%Seton Hall1040.8%6.3%1.8%0.4%0.1%0.0%Yale1419.0%6.4%0.9%0.1%0.0%0.0%Liberty1221.8%5.7%0.6%0.1%0.0%0.0%UCF938.2%3.9%1.2%0.3%0.1%0.0%Georgia State148.8%2.9%0.3%0.1%0.0%0.0%Colgate158.0%2.7%0.8%0.1%0.0%0.0%Bradley152.0%0.7%0.2%0.0%0.0%0.0%Fairleigh Dickinson162.1%0.6%0.1%0.0%0.0%0.0%Abilene Christian152.0%0.6%0.1%0.0%0.0%0.0%Montana152.0%0.5%0.1%0.0%0.0%0.0%Iona162.0%0.5%0.1%0.0%0.0%0.0%North Dakota State161.9%0.5%0.0%0.0%0.0%0.0%Gardner-Webb162.0%0.4%0.1%0.0%0.0%0.0%Northern Kentucky141.9%0.3%0.0%0.0%0.0%0.0%Simulate your bracket with AccuScore’s BracketcasterA year ago the overall number one seeded Virginia was upset by UMBC in the first round of the tournament.

When comparing their probabilities to advance to the second round, Houston’s probability is 10 percent lower. Another team with possibilities for a long ride is Auburn.
