Won’t make it back: Gould to Dale Steyn on giving Sachin not out in 190s

first_imgLONDON: Sachin Tendulkar’s name will remain etched in history as not only one of the legends of the game, but also as the first batsman to score a double century in ODIs in 2010. But South Africa pacer Dale Steyn believes that he had trapped the batsman plumb in front in the 190s, only for umpire Ian Gould to give it not out citing crowd pressure.”Tendulkar scored the first double hundred in ODI cricket, and it was against us in Gwalior. And I actually remember — I think I got him out lbw when he was about 190-odd. Ian Gould was the umpire, and he gave him not out,” the South Africa pacer said during the Sky Sports Cricket Podcast with England bowler James Anderson. “And I was like, ‘Why, why did you give him not out!? That’s so dead.’ And he was like, ‘Mate, look around – if I gave him out, I won’t make it back to the hotel.'” Gould had another interesting incident involving Tendulkar and that was during the 2011 World Cup semi-final between India and Pakistan in Mohali. While he gave Tendulkar LBW, the batsman took DRS and the decision was overturned. Gould said that he would stick to his decision of giving Tendulkar out in the 2011 World Cup semi-final. Gould said that he could not believe it when his decision was overturned after Tendulkar went for a review. “When I gave him out at Mohali, I’m thinking this is out. I will sit here and guarantee you, if I see it again, I’d still give it out, simple as that. He talked to Gambhir and looked like he was going to walk out, and I’m thinking thank God for that, then he spun on his heels and made that T sign and the world stopped,” Gould told BBC 5 Live Sport. “Eventually, (third umpire) Billy Bowden told me ‘It’s missing leg, I need you to change your decision.’ Well, no disrespect to him, but I was watching on a 90-foot screen showing me it was missing leg by an inch so I didn’t really need his analysis. I’ve got a picture here where I’m looking slightly disgruntled or annoyed as I gave them not out,” he added. Gould said that an umpire’s reaction in that situation is similar to that of a player who made a costly mistake. He however managed to get his focus back on the game. “My biggest fear after that was that I didn’t want another ball to hit anybody on the pad, my mind had gone. I had the brilliant Simon Taufel with me who kept me going. At the end of it, it’s just one of those moments,” he said. IANSlast_img read more

Paul Fox – Smart Inter Milan plays open new Asian horizons for LeTou

first_img LiveScore celebrates streaming service launch with Serie A partnership June 17, 2020 Share Share StumbleUpon Related Articles LiveScore adds new leagues to streaming offering August 12, 2020 Marek Suchar: “As esports betting grows, we will no longer speak about it as one sport” June 18, 2020 Submit Paul Fox, Chief Executive of Asian focused online gambling operator LeTou has proclaimed a positive and progressive first six months for the betting brand’s key partnership with Serie A football team Internazionale Milan.Back in August 2018, Philippines based LeTou extended its European football sponsorship portfolio becoming the ‘Official Asia Gaming Partner’ of the Nerazzurri, securing its biggest sports partnership to date.Leading LeTou’s expansion within multiple markets, Fox underlines the strategic importance of partnering with one of Europe’s highest-profile football clubs, whic he harbours a boundless international reach and appeal with football fans.“Internazionale is steeped in history and renowned as a football giant across the world, but the club is about more than what happens on the pitch every weekend. Few clubs can boast a fanbase as global as Inter’s, and we viewed them as the perfect partner to reach new audiences in Asia.” Fox details to SBC.“Inter’s commitment to having a long-term impact in key Asian regions was a big selling point for us, and there are a lot of synergies between the sports and gaming sectors. To become Inter’s first ever Asian Gaming Partner was proof that at LeTou, we are now one of the key players in our industry.Partnering with the Serie A giant, Fox and LeTou marketing have emphasised developing mutually beneficial conditions and prospects aiding and advancing both parties agendas, thus moving Inter-LeTou beyond standard betting sponsorship norms which have dominated Asian betting sponsorships.Emphasising cooperation, LeTou has fully embraced Inter Milan’s development of Chinese football academies, spearheaded by the Club’s new owner the Suning Retail Group, directives that have opened the LeTou brand to a potential 97 million Inter Milan Asian fanbase.Backing LeTou-Inter partnership prospects, Internazionale Sales Director Tal Moriah details:-  “Inter has already opened six academies throughout China in Beijing, Shanghai, Sichuan, Jiangsu, Shenyang and Hongkong, with over 100 football programs across the school system and elite youth team camps and clinics.”“The academies are operated on the highest level, with both certified coaches sent from Milan and local Chinese coaches. Training of local coaches is at the core of the Inter-Academy projects all over the world and in China we have seen great potential growth. Inter will continue to invest resources in the development of football in China.”For 2019 and beyond, Fox underlines that LeTou will continue to back Inter Milan’s Asia market social and youth football initiatives, with the aim of changing the perception of generic betting-sponsorships that have targeted Asian consumers.“The work that Inter has already done in key regions such as China is proof that they are focused on implementing change and contributing to the growth of football in Asia. Providing children with access to quality coaching will help them to understand the game and have an appreciation of how it can be used as a tool for good. It is an honour to be working in partnership with such as a successful football club both on and off the pitch, and we look forward to continuing our collaboration with them.last_img read more

Clippers win sixth consecutive game, destroying the Orlando Magic 114-86

first_imgThe Clippers (13-5) led 31-23 after one quarter, 57-44 at halftime and 84-62 after three quarters. They have now won six consecutive games and eight of nine.Griffin led the Clippers with 21 points, J.J. Redick had 20 and Chris Paul 19. Griffin shot 9 of 16 from the field, Paul was 7 of 10 and Redick 7 of 11.DeAndre Jordan also had a fine game. He came through with eight points, 16 rebounds and three blocks. And Matt Barnes, the only starter to playing the fourth quarter, came through with 17 points.Tobias Harris led the Magic with 16 points and Victor Oladipo and Ben Gordon each scored 11.The starters — Paul, Griffin, Barnes, Jordan and Redick — shot a combined 62.7 percent (32 of 51). “The ball is going in the basket for us,” Rivers said. “When we looked at our analytics for the season, it said that we were shooting poorly against uncontested shots. Now we are making our uncontested shots. I think that we are getting better shots and making them.”Barnes, who shot 6 of 8, was the only starter to play in the fourth quarter. He came off as stoked about the turnaround of his team, which at one point was just 5-4 before they embarked on a seven-game road trip and won six.“I think there was so much pressure on us early and it just got to everybody,” he said. “Once we calmed down and realized that it is only December, we remembered that we know how to play this game and what we are capable of.“We know what kind of team we have, so if we just go out there and play, we are going to win.”Overall, the Clippers shot 53.8 percent from the field and held Orlando to 41.8 percent.“We were playing exactly how we should play,” Griffin said. “No matter if we are scoring or not, we are moving the ball. It never really sticks. Defensively, everybody is there for each other.”Vaughn bemoaned losing O’Quinn, but praised the Clippers.“It just put us another man down at that position,” he said of O’Quinn. “We didn’t have our starting center or our backup center. But (the Clippers) played extremely well.” It was so interesting that fans at Staples Center began doing the wave during a fourth quarter in which the Clippers led by as many as 31 points on their way to a 114-86 victory over the Magic before a sellout crowd of 19,060.The Clippers (13-5) led by as many as 15 points in the first quarter, but had that lead whittled down to just three at 38-35 when Orlando’s Kyle O’Quinn committed a flagrant 2 foul when he raked Griffin across the face hard as Griffin was going in for what figured to be a dunk try with 5:54 left in the second quarter.O’Quinn was ejected, Griffin made one of two free throws and the Clippers went on an 8-2 run to lead 46-37. Orlando (7-14) got back to within seven points a couple of times, but whatever look they had in the game seemed to be gone after the incident.Interestingly, Griffin didn’t think O’Quinn deserved a flagrant 2.“I didn’t really see much, I closed my eyes,” Griffin said, drawing laughter from reporters. “I got hit in the face. But, honestly, I didn’t think it was going to be a flagrant 2. I didn’t think there was anything vicious or anything like that. But I thought we responded well.” The Orlando Magic entered their game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday with a record of 7-13. But somehow, even without center Nikola Vucevic – their leading scorer and rebounder – they came within an eye lash of winning at high-flying Golden State on Tuesday, only to lose by a point on a 3-point basket by the Warriors’ Steph Curry with 2.2 seconds to play.Would the Magic — still without Vucevic because of back spasms — be down, or angry? Clippers coach Doc Rivers was hopeful it was the former, but …“You just don’t know,” he said. “They’re young, they’re resilient.”Jacque Vaughn, the Orlando head coach out of Muir High in Pasadena, said, “It’ll be interesting.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Hall of Fame trainer banned from Santa Anita after 30th horse dies

first_imgThe grim statistics at Santa Anita Park continue to grow.According to The Associated Press, Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer has been banned by the ownership of the Southern California racetrack after a fourth horse from his stable died. A 4-year-old gelding was hurt Saturday while exercising on the training track and later had to be euthanized. It was the first death of the meet on the training track, which isn’t used for racing, the report noted.The death marks the 30th at Santa Anita in seven months.The Stronach Group, which owns the track, said in a statement that the 73-year-old Hollendorfer “is no longer welcome to stable, race or train his horses at any of our facilities.”Furthermore, the track’s stewards scratched four horses trained by Hollendorfer that had been entered to run on Saturday and Sunday. The move came on the advice of a special panel that reviewed horses’ medical, training and racing history.”I’m training over 100 horses right now,” Hollendorfer told the Daily Racing Form. “Santa Anita didn’t want me stay on the grounds. My opinion was that was a premature thing to do. I thought it was extreme. Now I have to step away for a while.”It remains unclear if Hollendorfer, who has three wins in the Breeders’ Cup, will race at other tracks not owned by The Stronach Group. Santa Anita had closed for racing for three weeks in March after the deaths of the first 22 horses. Two days after racing resumed, a 23rd horse died March 31.The deaths also prompted investigations by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office and the California Horse Racing Board.After six weeks without a death, seven fatalities have occurred since May 17.last_img read more
