Juan Mata’s goal was enough to give the Red Devils the victory over Wolves at Old Trafford in their third round replay. Juan Mata scored for Manchester United against Wolves Wolves were almost gifted the lead after 10 minutes when a poor pass from Fred bounced off Nemanja Matic and Raul Jimenez won a challenge with Harry Maguire. Neto’s goal was chalked off for handball But the ball hit Jimenez on the hand before it reached Pedro Neto who stroked it into the net. Following a VAR review referee Kevin Friend ruled out the goal. Juan Mata and James both went close to breaking the deadlock and Matt Doherty hit the woodwork as the first half ended goalless at Old Trafford. Mata saw Ruddy keep out his effort before Doherty’s header came back off the post. James had the best chance but hit his shot straight at Ruddy following a run into the area. It was Mata who eventually found the breakthrough in the 67th minute to put Solskjaer’s side 1-0 up.

ICC World Cup How MS Dhoni was outsmarted by Kane Williamson in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 clash in Manchester

first_imgNew Zealand has won five World Cup games against India in England.Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor smashed the fifties.New Zealand has reached the World Cup final for the second time. New Delhi: New Zealand had played attritional cricket, with Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor slamming fifties. A total of 239/8 was viewed as an under-par score, not worth of testing the might of Rohit, Kohli and others in the batting order in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 semi-final in Old Trafford, Manchester. Instead, there was a dramatic change in the script. Matt Henry removed Rohit for 1. The one person who could have made the difference and had made five tons before this match was gone. Virat Kohli was trapped LBW by Trent Boult for 1. When KL Rahul and Dinesh Karthik fell cheaply to Henry, India was in dire trouble.Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya attempted a recovery but both fell to Mitchell Santner and India’s hopes were fast fading away. A team-high on star power was now unfolding against a team known for their tactical acumen, mainly because of their skipper Kane Williamson. It was Williamson’s genius that ensured New Zealand had to grit it out to reach a total of 239. Now, he was rotating his bowlers brilliantly. Now, he was presented with the ultimate test. New Zealand had to go for the kill and in their path, stood MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja.Dhoni was the finisher par excellence. Jadeja was on a redemption mission after being labelled ‘bits and pieces’ by former India player and current commentator Sanjay Manjrekar. The pattern was set. Jadeja was going to be the aggressor and Dhoni was the sheet anchor. The former India captain was consuming plenty of dot balls while Jadeja was clearing the boundaries with ease.The power of Dhoni was such that he ensured Jadeja had all the freedom. Jadeja hit four fours and four sixes while MS Dhoni managed just one four. The 116-run stand had given 1.5 billion Indians reasons to dream again. Lord’s was still on.However, India still had the problem of a mounting net run-rate. Dhoni was still not able to turn his aggressive switch on. He was consuming too many dot balls. The former India skipper was going by the blueprint that had made him India’s ultimate finisher. Hang in there till the end and go for the kill in the last over. With 37 needed off the last three overs, Williamson had a conundrum. He had bowled out Matt Henry and had only one over of Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson. James Neesham was the other bowler who was entrusted to bowl one over.In Dhoni’s blueprint of death overs batting, his aim was to target the weak link in the bowling in a chase. In 2013, when India was in a similar situation against Sri Lanka in the tri-series final and had only one wicket remaining, Dhoni had gotten India to the final over. The right-hander then hit Shaminda Eranga for two sixes and a four in the final in Trinidad as India secured a brilliant win. In the 2019 semi-final, that weak link was James Neesham.However, Williamson had other ideas. He presented Dhoni the challenge. He told Dhoni, go through Boult and Ferguson in order to get to the last over bowled by Neesham. Boult and Ferguson were Williamson’s go-to bowlers in the death. Dhoni was now presented with a new challenge in his blueprint. Boult had bowled four good balls and the pressure mounted. On the fifth ball, Jadeja miscued a full ball and was caught for 77. With 31 needed off 12, it was now up to Dhoni.In many Twenty20 games and in the IPL, Dhoni had hogged the strike in the end and gotten India over the line or had fallen just short of it. Now, in the semi-final, he was expected to do the same. Dhoni upper-cut Ferguson for a six over deep backward point, rekindling the memory of the final of 2011 when he did the same thing to Thisara Perera at the Wankhede. However, next ball, Dhoni wanted a couple but a direct hit from Martin Guptill ended India’s hopes. It was a poetic tragedy that Dhoni’s career started with a run-out and his World Cup career ended with a run-out. Go deeper and even in 2015, India’s hopes in the semi-final against Australia ended when he was run-out in Sydney.In this instance, one felt that Dhoni’s struggle to press on the accelerator and the moment when he had to do it was too late. However, Williamson had outsmarted Dhoni in that he had too much to do at the death. The IPL, with the conditions and the kind of bowlers, is a different thing. In a World Cup, it is a different beast. In all this, the fact that there were six New Zealand fielders outside the circle when there should have been five was overlooked by the umpires. However, such is the nature of the sport.India had dominated the league stages of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 thanks to some brutal batting and clinical bowling. New Zealand, on the other hand, were reliant on only one or two individuals and were suffering a loss in momentum. The semi-final clash of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between India and New Zealand was a mere formality in Virat Kohli’s path to Lord’s on July 14. Commentators, analysts, mostly Indians were already wishing the team all the best for the next two games. Media houses had already booked the Indian cricket team a ticket to the final. However, there is a saying in cricket which is ‘expect the unexpected’. India’s fans would hopefully learn. However, in an era of inflamed passion, this is difficult and a country with one-tenth the population of India showed their brilliance under pressure.

Formula 1 may not race in 2020, say bosses

first_imgFORMULA 1 chairman Chase Carey has admitted that the sport’s owners are preparing for “the remote possibility of no racing in 2020”.He said they discussed with lenders how to handle the loss of income involved in not being able to run a season.But he emphasised: “We are increasingly confident – although there are no guarantees – that we will have a 2020 championship season.”F1 released figures showing income fell by 84% in the first quarter of 2019.Owner Liberty Media said F1’s revenue in the first quarter of 2020 was $39m (£31.6m) compared to $246m (£199m) in the same period in 2019.The records do not include any income received for the two races called off in that period in Australia and Bahrain, or any revenue from broadcasting rights.Carey, who was speaking on a conference call with investors after the release of the first-quarter results, said the coronavirus crisis had had “a significant impact on F1 and we are adjusting in numerous ways”.The figures reflect the difficulty created for F1 by the lack of racing, with all the sport’s main revenue streams facing disruption, and the importance of running a season this year.Carey said the “goal” remained to start the season in Austria on the first weekend in July, and that it was “likely” this would be followed by a second race at the Red Bull Ring the on 11-12 July.He said he believed it would be possible to have a championship of 15-18 races, and that the plan was for a series of European races through August and into September, before heading to Eurasia, Asia, the Americas and the Middle East, finishing on 13 December.“We expect the European races to be without fans,” Carey said, adding that he was working through the methods by which teams could get to the races without adding to the risk of spreading coronavirus.“We are making good headway on having races that can be secure and safe for everyone,” he said.Carey added: “We hope to be able to allow fans to attend in the latter part of the year” and that he was “increasingly positive about the number of locations that will be able and want to host a race this year”.A series of internal transactions at F1 owner the Liberty Media Group gave the sport an extra $1.4bn of liquidity to deal with the effects of the coronavirus crisis.Carey said: “We expect the impact of the coronavirus on the wider world will continue, but we feel well positioned to return to the growth curve we were on a few months ago.”The sport has made a series of moves in recent weeks to reduce costs for teams in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.These include delaying a major regulation change planned for 2021 until 2022, forcing teams to use their 2020 cars next season and a move to lower the budget cap that is planned to be introduced next year.

With Louisville coming to town, SU hosts highest-ranked opponent of decade

first_img Published on October 26, 2010 at 12:00 pm Contact Michael: | @Michael_Cohen13 Comments Nick Bibbs said it will be the biggest game of his life. Wednesday against Louisville is unlike any other game the first-year Division I midfielder has ever prepared for. That’s because he’s never played the No. 2 team in the country before. And it’s also because a Big East tournament spot is on the line. ‘I get nervous before every game, but this one, you know, I think I’m more excited for,’ Bibbs said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text With that mindset, the Orange (2-8-5, 0-4-3 Big East) prepares to take on its highest-ranked opponent in 10 years when the Cardinals (12-0-2, 7-0-0 Big East) arrive at SU Soccer Stadium Wednesday for a 7 p.m. start. Syracuse has two games remaining in its regular season, and the team is still in contention for one of the final two spots in the Big East tournament. Though no one on the SU roster will deny that Louisville is the better team, the players are now faced with the challenge of trying to steal a result against one of the nation’s best teams if they want to get into the postseason. Bibbs is one of those players. Along with goalkeeper Jeremy Vuolo, Bibbs acknowledged that Louisville is supposed to come here and beat SU. As the No. 2 team in the nation, that’s its job. ‘They’re a better team, I’ll just put it out there,’ Bibbs said. ‘They’re a better team, but we’re going to try to outwork them and get a result.’ Outworking the Cardinals is something no one has been able to do this season. Louisville has won its last eight games heading into Wednesday night — the exact opposite of how Rutgers limped into Syracuse over the weekend, riding an eight-game losing streak. But those Scarlet Knights, the worst team in the Big East, came away with their first conference win of the season after trouncing the Orange 3-0. Vuolo chalked that loss up to mental errors. If Syracuse truly expects to ‘outwork’ Louisville, then those mental mistakes have to be eliminated. ‘The difference between these good teams, great teams, bad teams is that one split second of a lapse of concentration,’ Vuolo said. ‘And that happened three times on Saturday. We’re going to look to be sharper mentally for the whole 90 minutes and not have any mishaps that might cost us the game.’ Sentiments that were echoed by SU head coach Ian McIntyre. ‘We know we’ve got 90 minutes where we’ve got to bring our ‘A’ game,’ he said. In reality, Wednesday night’s game is shaping up to be very one-sided. But not in the way you might expect. The Cardinals have already locked up a spot in the Big East tournament. They’ve already locked up the Red Division’s No. 1 seed in the tournament. And they’ve also secured the Big East regular-season title. In essence, all they have to play for is seeding in the NCAA Tournament. This fact, Vuolo said, could provide an advantage for Syracuse. Especially if the Cardinals rest some of their starters in anticipation of an easy victory over the Orange. ‘I’d love them to think it’s a day off,’ Vuolo said. ‘That’d be great. I’d love them not to respect us and to come in here and think they’re going to roll over us. We’ve all had this on our calendar circled in red since the beginning of the year.’ Prior to Saturday’s disappointing loss against Rutgers, McIntyre told his players not to focus on the Big East standings. He urged his team to take everything one game at a time. That changed, Bibbs said, in preparation for the Scarlet Knights. For the first time all year, McIntyre called it a must-get-a-result game. Syracuse let that chance slip through its grasp, and now it has to live with the consequences. That means stealing at least one point from the nation’s second-best team. ‘We didn’t get a result, and we made our lives hard,’ Bibbs said. ‘So we’ll have to deal with it.’ Yet somehow, someway the Orange is still alive and in contention for a spot in the Big East tournament. Even though it has fewer overall wins than any other team in the conference, and even though it has fewer goals than any other team in the conference. The team’s biggest goal, advancing to postseason play for the first time since 2005, is still reachable. And Bibbs and the rest of the players are trying to channel a year’s worth of effort for one crucial push Wednesday night. ‘As coach said, the season is about making memories,’ Bibbs said. ‘And I think if we beat Louisville, it would be a great, great memory for this team.’ mjcohe02@syr.educenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
