Cricket News Virat Kohli Gets Official Warning, Comes Closer To Being Banned

first_imgNew Delhi: Virat Kohli is known for his aggression and passion when he steps out on the field, whether as a batsman or as skipper of the Indian cricket team. The aggression and passion is good but sometimes it can lead to trouble. In the third and final Twenty20 International between India and South Africa at the M Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore, Kohli’s aggression has resulted in an official warning and this has put him in danger of being banned in the future if he repeats the offence again. Kohli was found guilty of a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct in the match which South Africa won by nine wickets. The incident occurred in the fifth over of India’s innings, when Kohli made contact with bowler Beuran Hendricks while taking a run. “Kohli was found to have breached Article 2.12 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to ‘Inappropriate physical contact with a Player, Player Support Personnel, Umpire, Match Referee or any other person (including a spectator) during an International Match’,” the ICC said in a statement.Also Read | Virat Kohli Says ‘Will Have To Take Risks’ For World T20 SuccessIn addition to this, one demerit point has been added to the disciplinary record of Kohli, for whom it was the third offence since the introduction of the revised Code in September 2016.  Kohli now has three demerit points after having got one demerit point each during the Centurion Test against South Africa on January 15, 2018 and against Afghanistan in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 on June 22.”Kohli admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Richie Richardson of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees, and as such, there was no need for a formal hearing,” the ICC said.Also Read | Virat Kohli Is Effective As Captain Only Because Of MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma: Gautam GambhirLevel 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points. When a player reaches four or more demerit points within a 24-month period, they are converted into suspension points and a player is banned. Two suspension points equate to a ban from one Test or two ODIs or two T20Is, whatever comes first for the player. Demerit points will remain on a player or player support personnel’s disciplinary record for a period of 24 months from their imposition, following which they will be expunged.

Camptown, Pouderoyen qualify for Turbo semis

first_imgCAMPTOWN FC and Pouderoyen FC are into the semi-final rounds of this year’s Turbo Knockout tournament following wins on Thursday evening at the Ministry of Education ground.In the first game, it was a 1-1 scoreline which required penalties to determine Camptown FC the winner over Linden’s Silver Shattas.Jurmain Samuels scored for the Linden side first and it was going well until Wayne Sharples equalised with five minutes to go.Not even regulation time could set the two apart and it came down to penalties, the Georgetown side winning 7-6.In the second game, an extra-time goal from Neil Lynton ensured that Pouderoyen made it through to the next round.With both halves ending scoreless, it was the fear too that this game would require penalties but Lynton ensured that did not happen.The semi-finals will take place next Friday with game one pitting Camptown against Pouderoyen and Police and Grove Hi-Tech battling it out in the other encounter.last_img read more

UW slips late in OT against PSU

first_imgJunior forward Mark Zengerle scored the opening goal for the Badgers Monday, but Wisconsin couldn\’t hold on for the win, eventually falling 3-2 in overtime.[/media-credit]As the Wisconsin men’s hockey team entered its eleventh overtime game of the season with Penn State, the unnerving feeling of a must-win situation was overwhelming.With just one minute to play in extra time, a tie seemed imminent. But as Penn State junior forward Taylor Holstrom continued to hack away at a loose puck, the Badgers watched their NCAA tournament hopes slip farther away when the Nittany Lion put away the game-winning goal with just 34 seconds left on the clock.After shutting out Penn State 5-0 in game one of the non-conference series, the Nittany Lions (13-13-0) roared back from a short two-goal deficit to upset the No. 18 Badgers (14-11-7, 10-7-7 WCHA) 3-2.“We’re going to look back at this and say, this was a game of missed opportunities,” head coach Mike Eaves said. “We’re probably going to look at the film and say we out-chanced them two to one and we didn’t score enough to put it out of the game in regulation.”Holstrom was the first to get Penn State on the board at the 6:48 mark of the third period, only seven seconds after Wisconsin made it 2-0. Penn State won the center ice faceoff and, according to sophomore goaltender Landon Peterson, Holstrom’s shot ricocheted off a Badger glove causing him to lose sight of the puck.Penn State tied things up 2-2 just less than six minutes later as freshman forward Casey Bailey capitalized on their fourth power play of the evening while junior forward Michael Mersch took a seat in the sin bin for slashing. Bailey beat Peterson five-hole as the Oregon, Wis. native attempted to clear the puck.The 3-2 overtime win was the final game for the Nittany Lions as they played as an independent this year and will join the Big Ten next year – along with the Badgers.Despite the loss, the Badgers outshot the Nittany Lions 44-36, with 20 of those shots coming in the middle period.After opening the second period with some sloppy play, Wisconsin eventually took command, putting up the majority of its 20 shots in the final 14 minutes of the period.The boosted offense finally helped the Badgers get on the board and junior center Mark Zengerle scored his first goal since Feb. 2 against North Dakota to give Wisconsin a 1-0 lead.Zengerle worked the puck around the Penn State defense at the blue line, gaining a 2-on-1 situation with freshman winger Nic Kerdiles. After passing back and forth in the slot to get the misdirection, Zengerle chipped the puck up into the net for the score at the 16:40 mark of the second period. The Rochester, N.Y. native led the Badgers with six shots on net on the night.Still rolling after a hot finish in the second, sophomore forward Joseph LaBate notched a wrister from left top of the left circle top shelf for the 2-0 lead.The Badgers certainly weren’t short on chances Monday night; they just couldn’t capitalize often enough.“I think we had plenty of chances to try and get that cushion to put them away,” Zengerle said. “Their goalie played pretty well but at the same time, we have to finish our opportunities.”Those opportunities included a meager four shots on four power play chances on the night. After scoring two power play goals Sunday night on seven chances, the Badgers weren’t able to capitalize – especially after losing senior forward Derek Lee around the 9:40 mark of the first period due to an unspecified leg injury.Lee, who quarterbacks the power play, was only on the ice for the Badgers first man-advantage of the night. Eaves has maintained time and again that the power play suffers due to a lack of identity, especially when Lee isn’t there.Regardless of how successful the power play is or isn’t, with the upset, the Badgers’ postseason hopes have fallen into dire straits. With two WCHA series left to close the season, Wisconsin does control its own fate, but making the NCAA tournament will be a more difficult task.“What can you do about it? It happened, we have to get back to work,” sophomore defenseman Jake McCabe said succinctly.“I wouldn’t say momentum’s been lost, but it’s devastating,” Zengerle added.last_img read more

Police hunting suspects in execution-style killing

first_imgThe Police are working on several leads as they hunt for two men responsible for the gunning down of a South Ruimveldt resident, in Layon Street, North Ruimveldt, Georgetown, on Thursday evening.Mark Wilson also called QQThe body of Mark Wilson, 22, also called “QQ”, of Lot 1238 Canje Pheasant, South Ruimveldt, Georgetown, was riddled with bullets by the two suspects at about 22:00h.According to reports, the young man was standing in vicinity of “Short Cut” when two men exited a car and shot at him.In an attempt to escape, Wilson ran through a yard but the gunmen gave chase and continued shooting, hitting him about the body. He eventually collapsed a short distance but the men continued to shoot at him.After the gunmen made good their escape in a car, persons in the neighbourhood ran to assist the injured man. He was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital but succumbed on his way there.Acting Crime Chief Hugh Jessemy explained that based on reports gathered, the shooting might have been a drive-by shooting but this was clearly refuted by the sister of the dead man.The sister, Malika Wilson, told Guyana Times that based on reports received, her brother was brutally shot and killed. “After they shoot he run, but they went behind he… my brother didn’t had the time to say a word… they shoot he up and left,” the woman stated.While she is not aware of any enemies that her brother might have had, she noted that he would always stay at his parent’s home during the day and leave for his place in the afternoon.“I ask he several times if he had enemies but he always tell me that he nah have vibes with anyone… but yesterday (Thursday) afternoon, he left home and went on the road and it was then, the people come and shoot he up.”She noted that after the family received news of the shooting, her mother and other brothers went to the hospital where they saw him lying motionless on a stretcher.He was reportedly shot at least ten times.Although the now dead man was charged and remanded to prison for possession of guns and ammunition in 2015, his sister refuted claims that his death might be linked to that incident, while noting that the case was dismissed.He, along with GDF officer Aaron Eastman, Andrew Escott and Ryan Escott, were charged on December 9, 2015. The four men were arrested by Police after two firearms and several rounds of ammunition were found in the vehicle they were travelling in; however insufficient evidence subsequently led to the case being dismissed.The man’s sister told Guyana Times that despite the other men informing the Police that they do not know her brother, charges were instituted against him.Meanwhile, the aggrieved sister described her now dead brother as a willing, loving and jovial individual.Police are continuing their investigations into the shooting.

Damien in tough spot

first_imgK.B. Leslie leads Damien in scoring with 12 goals. The Spartans have lost just one game outside of league. That occurred at the West Coast Classic at Cal State Fullerton over the Christmas break. Bassett will host Cajon on Saturday in a Division V matchup after winning the Montview League title. The Olympians (18-3-2) are led by Armando Cervantes (13 goals) and Richard Nava (12). “If we’re going to do well, we’ll need big things from both of them,” Bassett coach Raul Contreras said. “They are our star forwards and I expect a lot out of them.” Cajon is the third seed from the San Andreas League. In another Division V opener, Mission Valley League champion Arroyo will host L.A. Baptist. Bonita (10-12-1) will host West Covina on Wednesday in a Division III wild-card game. The Bearcats are coming off a disappointing third-place finish in the Miramonte League behind Diamond Ranch and Wilson, respectively. “I’m confident that we can score goals,” Bearcats coach Adam Archibald said. “We will either win it or lose it on the defensive end.” Archibald credits goalie Jeff Hoover with outstanding play in the net and said the numbers don’t reflect how well he’s playing. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

With a victory, the Spartans likely would get a rematch against Loyola, a team they tied 1-1 early in the season. “\ put us in the bracket of death,” Damien standout Davis Paul said. “I don’t think we got the respect in the rankings a two-time champion should get.” Paul has 11 goals and 12 assists this season, but his numbers are down because he has been the focus of the Spartans’ opponents. “I’ve been getting kicked, punched and elbowed lately, and it’s getting frustrating,” the future University of California player said. “We’re the underdog, and I think as tough as our bracket is, we’ve done well against some of those teams.” Spartans goalie Jon Brapincevic had 12 shutouts and will have to continue his solid play if Damien hopes to repeat this season. center_img Damien High School begins its quest for a third consecutive boys CIF-Southern Section Division I soccer title in an unusual position.
