Cricket News Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft bans to stay: Cricket Australia

first_imgNew Delhi: Cricket Australia has announced that there will be no reduction in the penalties imposed on Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft in the wake of the ball-tampering scandal in the Newlands Test against South Africa in March 2018. The Australian Cricket Board announced the decision in a board meeting on Monday to consider a submission lodged by the Australian Cricketer’s Association (ACA) which called for the bans to be immediately lifted. The ACA had given the proposal after the Ethics Centre review concluded that Cricket Australia’s mindset of ‘winning without the cost’ was the main reason for the scandal in Cape Town.Read More | Maninder Singh’s advice to India in Australia: Read conditions wellThe decision means Smith and Warner, who have been banned for a year, will not be able to play domestic cricket or international cricket until the end of March 2019. Bancroft, who was suspended for nine months for his role in the scandal, could return to domestic cricket by January 2019. Earl Eddings, the interim chairman of Cricket Australia, explained the rationale behind not reducing the bans.Read More | Shastri questions India’s ‘poor travellers’ tag ahead of series “We believe the ongoing conversation about reducing the sanctions puts undue pressure on the three players – all of whom accepted the sanctions. Though we recognise that this decision will be disappointing for the ACA, we thank them for their submission. Our commitment to continue building a strong relationship between CA and the ACA in the interests of cricket in Australia remains. The Cricket Australia Board doesn’t intend to consider further calls for amendments to the sanctions,” Eddings said.Read More | India in Australia: First whitewash, ODI glory and historic twin tonsBancroft’s first international assignment, should be considered, could be the Sri Lanka Tests that begin in mid-January. On the other hand, Smith and Warner could play international cricket before the World Cup if Pakistan decide to move the scheduled ODI series from March to April.Cricket Australia stated that all the elements of ACA’s recommendations were considered and the submission was deliberated at length. The Board maintained that the length and nature of the sanctions was appropriate considering the damage to Australian cricket. The ACA has called the Board’s decision “disappointing” and announced the matter was closedMassive fall-out from ball-tampering scandalThe ball-tampering scandal erupted in the Cape Town Test against South Africa when Bancroft was caught on camera trying to alter the condition of the ball with yellow sandpaper from his pocket.  The controversy resulted in Smith and Warner being banned by Cricket Australia for a year and Bancroft for nine months, with Warner being permanently banned by the Board from holding a leadership position.In the wake of the scandal, an Ethics Centre report to review Australian Cricket Culture was published and it criticised Cricket Australia’s mentality of fostering a philosophy to ‘win without counting the cost’. Another report in the form of the Longstaff Review was constituted which looked in Cricket Australia’s cultural failings. The review criticised Cricket Australia as “arrogant and controlling” and that players lived in a “gilded bubble”. This resulted in the resignation of Chairman David Peever.

Better prices and new pipelines expected to drive higher Canadian crude output

first_imgCALGARY – A pipeline capacity gap that is impeding the movement of Western Canada’s crude to market will close by 2021 and there will be surplus room from about 2022 until 2030, according to the Canadian Energy Research Institute.The Enbridge Line 3 and Trans Mountain expansion pipeline are expected to come onstream in about two years, followed by the Keystone XL pipeline about a year later, the Calgary-based think-tank said Tuesday in a forecast based on financial and market modelling.It predicts Canadian crude oil production will jump to 7.2 million barrels per day by 2038 from 4.2 million bpd last year, aided by thirsty markets that will drive global oil prices above US$100 per barrel by 2030.Oil production growth will come mainly from the oilsands, which will build from the current 2.65 million barrels per day to just under 5.5 million bpd by 2038, CERI says in its reference scenario.“In all cases, we see increases in the production of oilsands because we see increasing demand for oil globally,” said CERI CEO Allan Fogwill.“We see the market access issue being resolved and we also see improvements coming in the production of oilsands, helping reduce the cost.”Its oil production forecast is higher than one released last week by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, which predicted that Canadian oil output will increase to 5.6 million bpd by 2035 as oilsands production rises to 4.2 million bpd.Emissions from the oilsands would exceed the Alberta government’s cap of 100 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year by 2030 with current technology, Fogwill said, but added new technologies are expected to allow the industry to continue to grow without violating the cap.CERI foresees a much darker future for natural gas than oil, with rising production from shale gas wells in the U.S. replacing western Canadian gas in its traditional markets of Eastern Canada, the eastern U.S. and, eventually, mid-continent U.S.Gas production will fall from current levels of about 16.5 billion cubic feet per day to about 15.4 bcf/d over the next two decades unless LNG export facilities are built to send gas to new markets overseas, Fogwill said.About 14 liquefied natural gas processing facilities have been proposed for the West Coast but none are being built as yet. CERI calculates that two LNG terminals would add about five billion cf/d to demand for gas mainly from Alberta and B.C.The picture for natural gas could get even worse if oilsands producers succeed in their goal of reducing the amount of gas they burn to create steam to produce bitumen, Fogwill said.Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter.last_img read more

Vigyan Prasar to strengthen science outreach strategy

first_imgKolkata: In a fresh bid to popularise science among the masses, Vigyan Prasar – an autonomous body under the Department of Science and Technology, is all set to communicate with people in regional languages, a scientist said. Apart from English and Hindi, all publications and online content of Vigyan Prasar, will be available in regional languages also, the scentist said on Friday. “For greater outreach, Bengali, Tamil and Marathi languages have been selected initially,” Rintu Nath, the scientist of Vigyan Prasar said while speaking at the seminar on ‘Science communication, popularising and outreach in Bengali – the road ahead’.

In the zone Johnsons 3point shooting keeps Buckeyes in Big Ten Tournament

INDIANAPOLIS — If the Ohio State women’s basketball team (20-9) goes on to win the Big Ten Tournament title, it will have senior guard Brittany Johnson to thank. During Friday night’s quarterfinal round game against No. 5-seeded Iowa (22-8), oft-relied-on sources of offense were less than reliable for the Buckeyes. It took senior center Jantel Lavender nearly 12 minutes to score her first points against the Hawkeyes. By game’s end, Lavender had made five of her nine field-goal attempts. She finished the night with 11 points — 11.6 points below her season average of 22.6 per game. OSU’s second-leading scorer, junior guard Samantha Prahalis, scored only seven points on 2-for-10 shooting from the field. Prahalis also fell short of her season average of 14.1 points per game. OSU coach Jim Foster said he wasn’t satisfied with the Buckeyes’ offensive output. “I thought we were a little careless with the ball,” Foster said. “We were forcing too much in the first half.” Johnson, however, was a scoring threat from the opening tip until the final buzzer. After opening up OSU’s scoring with back-to-back 3-pointers in the first half, Johnson put away the game with three more 3-pointers late in the second. There were a couple more threes in between as well. All told, Johnson made seven of 14 3-point attempts against Iowa and finished the game with a season-high 23-point performance. “I was just in the zone, I guess,” Johnson said. “I just wanted to step up and help my teammates out. That’s what I did.” After the game, Foster said Johnson played well on both sides of the court to lead OSU to the 71-61 win. “(Johnson’s) developed herself into being a great shooter,” Foster said. “I thought her defense tonight was every bit as exciting as the 3-point shots.” Even Hawkeyes coach Lisa Bluder had praise for Johnson. “(Johnson’s) a good player,” Bluder said. “You’ve got to know where she is all the time. She is a really, really good 3-point shooter.” Lavender might have summarized Johnson’s contribution to Friday’s victory most succinctly. “We have the utmost confidence in (Johnson’s) shot,” Lavender said. “She did a great job focusing tonight. That’s what we needed to win.” OSU continues Big Ten Tournament play with a semifinal round game against No. 1-seeded Michigan State (26-4) on Saturday at Conseco Fieldhouse. read more

Senior track athletes compete for the final time at Ohio State

For the senior athletes on the Ohio State men’s and women’s track teams, the 27th annual Jesse Owens Memorials Track Classic was a last opportunity to compete on their home track and leave their best efforts at the Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium where their collegiate careers began three seasons ago. All-American senior Christina Manning, who was named Big Ten Track Athlete of the Week for the ninth time in her career April 2, said the final home meet led to reminiscing upon her career at OSU. “It means a lot. It’s bittersweet actually,” Manning said. “I just get so many memories of when I was a freshman, to sophomore year, junior and right now. I just want to leave something here on this track. So hopefully I have.” Manning won the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 13.06, the ninth best in Division I this season. Manning, senior Madison McNary, sophomore Chesna Sykes and junior Christienne Linton also took home the victory in the 4×100-meter relay with a time of 44.55. Senior sprinter Shaniqua McGinnis said that since this was her last home meet, she was glad her relay team, which included McGinnis, freshman Aisha Cavin, freshman Alexandria Johnson and junior Nyjah Cousar, would win the 4×400-meter relay with a time of 3:45.12. “I just wanted to bring it home as a win,” McGinnis said. “This is my last time running on this track as a collegiate athlete at a meet, so I’m just glad I can bring this win in. It means a lot. To be able to win it like this with the race, it’s something I’ll always remember.” Senior Ashley Galbraith’s high jump of 1.70 meters claimed the win during her final day of competition in the Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. Senior Maggie Mullen was first in the hammer throw, with a personal record throw of 59.84 meters/196-04, the fifth-best in school history. The men’s team earned wins in six events, including the 4×100-meter and 4×400-meter relays. The Buckeyes competed in the 4×400-meter relay without senior All-American Thomas Murdaugh, and claimed a win with a time of 3:12.66. Interim coach Ed Beathea said redshirt junior Cory Leslie’s performance in the mile run was one of the standout performances for the Buckeyes. All-American Leslie finished first with a time of 4:01.99, the third-best in OSU outdoor history. Senior Dan White finished sixth for the Buckeyes in the 800-meter run with a time of 1:52.15. Adam Green, a redshirt senior who placed eighth in the men’s one mile run, said he hoped the Jesse Owens Classic will give him the push he needs for the rest of the season. “It’s a great meet, we love having it. We love competing here. Hopefully this will spring me forward for this season,” Green said. In his first meet of the year, All-American senior Michael Hartfield placed second in the long jump with a jump of 7.45 meters. Women’s coach Karen Dennis said seniors play an important leadership role on the team. “This is what I need our senior and our juniors to understand … there’s a significance in beginnings and endings,” Dennis said. “How you begin something is important, as well as how you end something. And that’s what I’ve been trying to impress upon our juniors and seniors. We need you to leave here leaving everything that you can on the track for the team, so that our freshmen and sophomores see how to leave and how to lead when they become juniors and seniors.” The women’s track and field team’s next competition is the Florida Invitational, set for April 20 in Gainesville, Fla. The men’s team will compete at the Mt. SAC Relays April 19-21 in Walnut, Calif., and at the All-Ohio championships in Oxford, Ohio, April 20-21. read more
