Cricket News IPL 2019: Sunrisers Hyderabad aim to overcome knock-out blues

first_imgSunrisers Hyderabad won the 2016 IPL title by beating RCB.David Warner missed the 2018 edition of the IPL due to the ball-tampering scandal.Sunrisers Hyderabad lost in the 2018 final to Chennai Super Kings. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Sunrisers Hyderabad – a team that shows plenty of brilliance in the league stages only to fritter their advantage in the knock-out stages. The team, which is considered as the best bowling unit in the IPL, has had their moments but only one title in the last six editions is not an impressive resume for a team that has the potential to match the capabilities of top sides like Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders. Sunrisers did not have too much to ponder in the 2018 auction where they bought just three players in Martin Guptill, Jonny Bairstow and Wriddhiman Saha. However, the squad will see a welcome boost in David Warner, who missed the 2018 edition due to the ball-tampering scandal in the Newlands Test against South Africa.Warner’s addition to the side not only gives them power at the top but it also gives them a solid leadership potential, provided Sunrisers Hyderabad choose Warner. With Shikhar Dhawan going to the Delhi Capitals, Sunrisers need some solidity in their batting. The likes of Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey and Vijay Shankar give them depth along with Wriddhiman Saha. highlights If Sunrisers Hyderabad need to go the distance in the IPL, then they will have to bank on their bowlers. In the previous edition, the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Siddarth Kaul efficiently controlled the flow of runs in the death overs. The bowling though, is boosted by Afghanistan legspinner Rashid Khan, who is without doubt one of the best spinners in the Twenty20 format. His brilliance in the middle overs and also at the death makes him a valuable asset. It is this bowling composition which makes Sunrisers Hyderabad potent as compared to the other teams.Sunrisers Hyderabad squadMartin Guptill, Yusuf Pathan, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Shahbaz Nadeem, Sandeep Sharma, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Mohammad Nabi, T Natarajan, Kane Williamson, Abhishek Sharma, Siddarth Kaul, David Warner, Vijay Shankar, Khaleel Ahmed, Manish Pandey, Billy Stanlake, Deepak Hooda, Basil Thampi, Ricky Bhui, Sreevats Goswami (wk)Backroom staffHead coach: Tom MoodyMentor: VVS LaxmanBowling coach: Muttiah MuralitharanAssistant coach: Simon HelmotIndian players to watch out forManish Pandey: The right-hander has not played an ODI for India since September 2018 in the Asia Cup. Even in the Twenty20 against West Indies in October, he did not impress. A solid performance in the middle order in this edition could potentially see him go to England for the World Cup as the back-up to India’s No.4 conundrum.Siddarth Kaul: The Punjab pacer is an effective option in the death. In the tour of England, Kaul did not impress much but he can be a wonderful asset in the death in the company of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Although the Indian bowling composition is settled for the World Cup, a good performance might boost his inclusion.International players to watch out forDavid Warner: He missed the 2018 IPL due to the sandpapergate scandal and now he is back. The Australian’s addition is a welcome boost to their batting fortunes. In addition to his leadership skills, Sunrisers will be banking on him to repeat his 2016 heroics.Martin Guptill: For most editions of the IPL, the New Zealand opener has been ignored during the auctions only to be included as a replacement for a player who is injured. A good performance in the IPL is the right boost for this aggressive player and he could be in the right frame of mind heading into the World Cup for New Zealand.  Past record2013: Fourth (Eliminator)2014: Sixth2015: Sixth2016: Champions2017: Fourth (Eliminator)2018: Finallast_img read more

Dornsife hosts presidential election conference

first_imgDornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences hosted the “2016 Presidential Election Conference” on Tuesday, bringing notable strategists, political consultants, journalists and professors to campus to sum up and debate the outcomes of the 2016 presidential election. The last panel of the conference featured Joel Benenson, a pollster for Obama in 2008 and 2012 and Hillary Clinton’s chief campaign strategist in the 2016 race; Alex Castellanos, a political consultant for President-elect Donald J. Trump; Mike Murphy, a Republican political consultant for Jeb Bush’s campaign; Bill Carrick, a political consultant and strategist; and professors of political science and communication Diana Mutz and Lynn Vavreck, who teach at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of California, Los Angeles, respectively.Discussion focused on the strengths and flaws of the candidates and their campaigns, as well as concerns regarding the future of political parties, Congress and the presidency as a whole.“People tend to vote for what they perceive they did not get the last time because every four years they get to pick something,” Murphy said. “The biggest driver is partisanship; most of the people who voted for Trump did so because he was the Republican.” Murphy said that they did the same for Clinton because she was a Democrat. He also said the divide between the politicians in Washington, D.C. and the people who felt that their wages were stagnating contributed to the election of Donald Trump.“A guy comes along who’s famous for being on television and getting stuff done. A guy who wrote a book called The Art of the Deal,” Murphy said. “A guy totally divorced from politics. President Obama was perceived as gridlocked, and by many voters [this was seen as a] weakness.”Benenson emphasized the flaws of both political parties and the need to modernize the system post-election through taking into account the needs of the citizens, strengthening democracy and the economy.“There was something very different at work in this election. Democrats, as a party, even though we won the popular vote six out of seven times, can’t just be a presidential party,” Benenson said. “We have to do more work in some states where we actually have a much better message for economically disadvantaged people, including white voters and voters of color.”Benenson added that the Republican party was also going to be tested, especially with a future Trump presidency and Republican-majority House of Representatives and Senate.“They are going to be under a microscope. [Trump’s] going to have to show leadership in a way he has not done so at all in his campaign,” Benenson said. “He needs to speak out earlier and sooner.”Castellanos discussed the lack of civilian trust in the government. “What are people actually dissatisfied with? Maybe it’s the product they’re buying with their votes that’s not working to the degree that they have paid for and invested in,” Castellanos said. “What if big structures can’t keep up with a dynamic and changing society, and what if we need others tools in our toolbox to govern ourselves other than the big factory in Washington?”Mutz echoed Castellanos’ sentiments, citing evidence from her population-based survey experiments.“What people are responding to is not political differences, issue differences, ideological differences; what they’re responding to is the tone,” Mutz said. “They are mad that nothing is coming out of Washington because nobody can agree on anything.”last_img read more

DPS Chief John Thomas wanted to change the police, so he joined them

first_imgPhoto from USC NewsJohn Thomas’s office captures every significant experience in his life. His shelf teems with the awards and honors he earned as a police officer. A framed photo of him shaking hands with former president Barack Obama hangs near the door. The walls are decorated with black-and-white photos of Los Angeles Police Department figures, reflecting his passion for history.Thomas is the chief of the Department of Public Safety, where he is responsible for overseeing more than 300 personnel who work 365 days a year. Born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, he was no stranger to USC when he joined DPS back in October 2006. Prior to that, he served in the LAPD for 21 years.He considered attending law school after college, but felt compelled to join the LAPD because he believed it was the best way to make a tangible, everyday difference in people’s lives. He said that his own negative encounters with the police also contributed to his desire to improve the dynamics of police interactions with members of minority groups.“I used to get stopped commuting for school between Westwood and South Central,” Thomas said. “I remember clearly an officer telling me that I had no business being anywhere west of La Cienega.”During his time with the LAPD, Thomas was a part of the department’s Gang Enforcement Detail in South Los Angeles, and completed undercover narcotics enforcement assignments. He was tasked with infiltrating drug rings, purchasing narcotics and organizing search warrants. One of the locations he monitored in East Los Angeles was a hub for heroin, which he said exposed him to how deeply crime could damage communities.“The worst thing I saw was the impact [of drug crimes] on kids,” Thomas said. “The kids would have to walk to school surrounded by heroin needles.”Thomas thought that universities could be doing more to address the social issues linked to crime and help at-risk youths by providing them with opportunities and resources. To this end, Thomas retired from the LAPD as a lieutenant and decided to pursue a career in campus policing. After retiring, he became the deputy chief of police for the University of the District of Columbia for a year before moving back to Los Angeles He said that his role with DPS is very different from his previous role with the LAPD.“We’re constantly educating the transitory student population,” Thomas said. “I think we do more educating than enforcing.”   However, for Thomas, the job of DPS chief comes with dark and difficult moments. In recent years, certain crimes — such as the 2014 murder of Chinese graduate student Xinran Ji — have caused USC’s administration to augment security measures around campus. Thomas said he takes any tragedy that happens personally, and says he’ll never forget when he had to speak with Ji’s parents.“No parent sends their kid to any university and expects that. Instead of coming to a graduation, they’ll be coming to make funeral arrangements and claim the body,” Thomas said.After that incident, Thomas realized that DPS shouldn’t practice a “one size fits all” approach to educating students about crime. He understood that the department should account for differences in students’ cultures and mindsets. Thomas emphasized that this mentality is especially important now, amid tension around President Donald Trump’s new administration. Thomas’ priority is to ensure that each individual student feels safe and that their constitutional rights are being protected.Going forward, Thomas’ goal is for USC to be recognized as the safest urban campus in America. He believes the best way to achieve this is by improving relationships between DPS and USC students, DPS and the local community and USC students and the local community. He is a big proponent of programs like the Neighborhood Academic Initiative and the DPS Cadet Program because he believes that any area’s level of safety depends on its inhabitants having a good quality of life.“We need to make sure that everybody who lives around USC feels like they have a stake in USC — that there’s something special about being part of this campus community,” Thomas said.last_img read more

Nobel laureate visits Dornsife’s speaker series

first_imgNobel laureate Vernon Smith, commenting on society’s most basic structural elements, said that “the rules of property and modern conventions have ancient origins.” Commerce has existed since prehistoric times, and even primitive tribes increased their economic wealth through methods like specialization.Smith, a professor of economics and law at Chapman University and a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, gave a lecture to students and faculty on Monday at the University Club. He received his Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University and has taught at several prominent universities, including Stanford University, Brown University and California Institute of Technology.Smith’s discussion centered on Adam Smith’s theory of moral sentiments as an explanation for various game theory models that have confounded economists since the 1990s. Hosted by the USC Dornsife Institute for New Economic Thinking, the talk is the first in this semester’s series.Smith began by exploring the underpinnings of the Enlightenment, noting that prominent economist Adam Smith may have been profoundly influenced by Isaac Newton’s theories.“I like to think of people in the Scottish Enlightenment as applying Newtonian thinking to social, political and economic life,” Smith said, relating Adam Smith’s theory of the “invisible hand” to Newton’s theory of the invisible force of gravity.“There are all kinds of order out there in our social, political and economic life. Where does this order come from?” Smith said. “Part of it is that we’re influenced by things that we’re not aware of. We learn things without even realizing we are.”He then explored several fundamental ideas behind the theory of moral sentiment, including that humans may not be completely rational actors and are instead prone to altruistic behavior. Smith showed this by examining the results of his tests on game theory.Smith’s lecture ultimately explained an alternative way of viewing economic phenomena, saying that modern economists tend to explain the results of their studies by superficially altering predictive economic functions. His theory, however, harkens back to Adam Smith’s 18th century thesis, prescribing a deeper cause as the root of our capacity for altruistic actions.Viren Rupani, a sophomore majoring in business administration, said that attending these events gives him the opportunity to hear about cutting-edge economic theories.“I’ve always been really fascinated by economics,” Rupani said. “Usually in class you get to learn about classical textbook theories, but when you come to lectures like these you get to see what new developments are happening in the field and learn new insights.”Rupani also commented on how basic structures of human interaction can be applied to economics through Smith’s theory.“I found the synthesis between Adam Smith’s theory of moral sentiment and the basis for human interaction to be very interesting in how they potentially relate to the realm of economics,” Rupani said. “You can synthesize these fields and see how they come together to provide a much more comprehensive view of how human interaction takes place in the marketplace.”last_img read more

Emma Firenze finds success for Syracuse following lost year due to knee surgery

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Emma Firenze knew something wasn’t right last season. More than a year removed from surgery, her right knee hadn’t healed properly.“I just wasn’t feeling comfortable,” she said. “So I decided I had to do something else.”When the season ended, she opted to have a second surgery, which she underwent on Christmas Eve.Ten months later, she’s back playing with Syracuse and, by her account, fully recovered. She started her first game on Sunday against North Carolina State and is using a unique approach on the field to succeed. She could start her second game Thursday night, when the Orange (5-10-1, 1-6 Atlantic Coast) hosts Miami (5-9, 2-5) at SU Soccer Stadium.During a game with her club team before coming to SU in 2013, Firenze made a “wrong step” and her knee buckled.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“It was just kind of a freak thing,” she said.Surgery required her to sit out her entire freshman season. She played as a sophomore in 2014 but never felt fully healthy. In 15 games, she recorded only four shots on goal and didn’t have a single point.Getting a second surgery was a joint decision made by Firenze, her family and SU’s coaches, including head coach Phil Wheddon.“I don’t want a player to be hurt and uncomfortable if they can avoid it,” Wheddon said. “It was disappointing for everyone that her first surgery didn’t work the way that she wanted to. It was a decision that was in the best interest of Emma.”The journey back to the field was a grueling one. Firenze rehabbed every day for several months. She had days where she questioned whether she would ever play soccer again.She sought encouragement from her coaches and family, including her sister Jackie Firenze, a captain on the team.“Of course, there’s going to be highs and lows,” Jackie said. “If she ever gets low, I’m there to help her out.”But in September, Syracuse’s assistant athletic trainer Kathleen Chaney cleared Emma to play. She practiced for a couple weeks before actually playing in a game. During that time, she emphasized playing the ball with her right foot. Firenze is naturally left-footed, but one of her main strengths as a player has long been her ability to use both feet effectively.After the injury to her right knee, though, Firenze fell into a habit of using predominantly her left foot. She’s been using her right foot more and says she’s as capable with it now as she’s ever been.As Firenze showed that type of progress in practice, Wheddon gave her a chance to play in games. She came off the bench in each of the first six games of ACC play. She then, she started for the first time in 2015 against the Wolfpack on Sunday, when she scored her first career goal 50 seconds into the game.With three games left, Firenze said her goal is to score another goal before season’s end. Wheddon wants to see her continue to improve her fitness so she can play for longer stretches of time. Against N.C. State, she didn’t play the entirety of either half.But Firenze simply being on the field is something she and Wheddon don’t take for granted.“She had a long road and she’s fought really, really hard to get where she is,” Wheddon said. “I’m really happy for her.” Comments Published on October 22, 2015 at 9:59 am Contact Michael: mdburk01@syr.edulast_img read more

Volleyball: Wisconsin comes off win against Illinois, heads to Iowa City

first_imgThe kills rained down on the Illinois defenders Wednesday night as Sophomore Dana Rettke went for a career-high 23 kills on 38 attempts, hitting an impressive .526. The No. 6 University of Wisconsin Women’s volleyball team downed the No. 7 Fighting Illini in four sets, 21–25, 25–21, 25–23, 25–18, improving to 4–1 in conference play.Despite the statistics, the game was no cakewalk for the Badgers as they had to make two crucial comebacks. Anxious Badger fans knew what had happened last week against Minnesota and the game versus Illinois was playing out in a very similar manner. However, down a set, and facing a 7–14 deficit, Wisconsin (11–2 Overall, 4–1 B1G) turned on the burners and took off with an 18–7 scoring run to close out the second set.Dana was not the only Badger lighting it up. Madison Duello added 10 kills to the stat line and Sydney Hilley went for a career-high with seven kills. Tionna Williams and Hilley both finished with a hitting percentage of .667 while the team hit .326 (58-15-132). These are the types of contributions Wisconsin will need in matches such as Illinois and future tournament games. The more productivity coming from the outside will only open up hitting lanes for Rettke coming down the middle and lead to more team success for the Badgers.Football: Badgers hope to deny Nebraska their first win of season SaturdayThe No. 16 University of Wisconsin Badgers will host the Nebraska Cornhuskers Saturday at Camp Randall as Wisconsin eases off Read…Wisconsin put on their display of composure as well. Facing a 22–23 deficit in the third set, the Badgers rallied off three consecutive points to take the set and all the momentum with them. After closing out the Illini in the fourth set, the Badgers improved to 4–2 against top 25 opponents on the season and 6-0 in games where they hit above .300.Next up on the radar for the Badgers is the unranked Iowa Hawkeyes (10–6, 2–3) which will complete the four-game road trip for the Badgers who are currently 2–1 on the trip.Iowa has dropped three of their last four games to ranked opponents with their only win coming against Northwestern in five sets.  The only thing that can beat the Badgers in this game is themselves. As long as they do not get complacent, this should be nothing more than a business trip for the Badgers.You can listen to the action starting at 7 p.m. live from Iowa city on 100.9 FM, The Badgers Sports Network.last_img read more

Men’s Basketball: Badgers look to continue hot streak against Michigan

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team (17-10, 10-6 Big Ten) will set out to take on an opponent they have not yet faced thus far in the surging Michigan Wolverines (18-9, 9-7).The Michigan Wolverines are arguably one of the hottest teams in the Big Ten conference right now. Most people counted them out after their puzzling month of January where they started out ranked No. 12 in the nation before going 2-5 and dropping toward the bottom of the conference.It all started with an 18-point loss to their in-state rivals of Michigan State. The Wolverines did manage to bounce back and beat Purdue in double overtime in their next outing, but they followed that win with four straight losses against Minnesota, Iowa, Penn State and Illinois.Men’s Basketball: Badgers among best teams in Big Ten when playing at Kohl CenterThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team (17-10, 10-6 Big Ten) has been mediocre at best on the road this Read…Michigan, at one point, was ranked as high as No. 4 in the nation while sporting wins against two top-ten teams in North Carolina and Gonzaga. But after their collapse in the month of January, the Wolverines found themselves unranked with a 2-6 record in the Big Ten conference.Michigan has significantly turned their season around over the past month, and are now being talked about as one of the more dangerous teams in college basketball. The Ohio State University is the only team to hand Michigan a loss in February, and the Wolverines have now re-entered the AP Poll as the No. 19 team in the nation with a 9-7 conference record.Michigan sits in seventh place in the conference, but they are only one game back on the five-teams who are tied for second place.Men’s Basketball: Multiple contributors fill void left by Kobe KingFollowing a frustrating Jan. 27 loss to Iowa on the road, the Badgers were slammed with more bad news just Read…The Wolverines are not the only team riding a winning streak, as the Badgers have won their last four games. Wisconsin’s winning streak has moved the team into a tie for second place in the conference.Despite Wisconsin’s off-court distractions and struggles away from the Kohl Center, the Badgers still have a legitimate shot to win the Big Ten conference if they can win their four remaining games. Wisconsin is two games back on the Maryland Terrapins, but the Terrapins still must go through Michigan State, Rutgers and Michigan.The Badgers’ date with the Wolverines will take place in Ann Arbor Thursday night. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m. on ESPN2, or you can listen live with the Badger Radio Network.last_img read more

Duke Micah, Isaac Dogboe win vacant titles

first_imgA fired-up Micah came out in the seventh with a series of uppercuts and one right hook to Wilson’s ribs that sent him crashing to the mat, where he immediately began vomiting. Wilson managed to make it to his feet and was saved by a bell that rang immediately after. The time between rounds gave him and his team enough time to assess the situation. He would retire on his stool before the start of the seventh. WBO African title at stake.A victorious Micah said afterward, “This win really shows that when it comes to Africa, I’m the number one in my division. Winning the title is just a stepping stone in my boxing career. The ultimate is the world title and I’m working toward that and I believe I can achieve that feat.”In the co-feature, Isaac “Royal Storm” Dogboe (10-0, 6 KO’s) turned in one of the best performance of his young career, capturing the vacant WBO and WBA featherweight titles with an eight round TKO over George Krampah (14-3, 11 KO’s).Dogboe scored two knockdowns in the first and one in the sixth, gradually breaking Krampah down until he refused to come out of his corner for the start of the eighth.“Krampah is a good boxer but on this day my strategy worked perfectly,” Dogboe said.  “In the fight I decided not to give him any breathing space so the plan was to attack, attack and attack and I had it in the first and sixth round. I will not be swollen-headed following my triumph, work is still ongoing for the world title.” Topping the undercards fights, Isaac Aryee stopped Justice Addy in three to win the vacant national welterweight belt while in the super featherweight contest, Kpakpo Allotey recorded an eight round split decision over Abdul Aziz Quartey by scores of 78-75, 77-75 and 75-77.In the super middleweight battle Emmanuel Anim scored a second round TKO over Nana Yaw Afriyie; featherweight Felix Williams unanimously defeated Kamurudeen Boyfeio in a bout billed for eight rounds. Cards read 79-73 and 80-72 twice.Maxwell Amponsah stopped Stephen Abbey in round four of their eight round light heavyweight contest and Felix Adjourn stopped Ben Tutu in round two of their scheduled eight round clash.Russian-based Ghanaian super welterweight Shahin Adgezalou was the toast of the fans as he stopped Francis Gabetor in round four and in another super welterweight clash, Daniel Adoku forced Ezekiel Afele to retire in round four.– Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
