Naomi Osaka made a winning start to her title defence at the Australian Open on Monday as the Grand Slam tournament began on schedule after a build-up hit by haze from raging bushfires. Hazardous smog left several players with coughs and breathing difficulties during qualifying last week, prompting speculation about whether the tennis season's first Major would be delayed. But a full roster of matches began on time under cloudy skies at Melbourne Park, with air quality rated as 'good' and rain forecast. … [Read more...] about Naomi Osaka Makes Winning Start At Australian Open After Smoke Fears Ease
“We saw some poor defending, poor goaltending I think in Philly. Tonight I thought it was more the same to be honest with you,” said Cassidy on Sunday. “Not so much on the goalie, they were good goals. But we get beat off the wall on the first one. The last one I can’t tell you what happened to be honest with you. It’s a rimmed puck goalie needs to get out and stop. The D need to communicate. … [Read more...] about Bruins coach Cassidy has some harsh words for his defense
Mostert, though, led the group in carries (147), rushing yards (772), and rushing scores (eight). He also finished the regular season on a roll, so it was surprising when last week Coleman led the backfield with 22 carries for 105 yards and two scores. Coleman mixed in with Mostert early in the NFC title game against the Packers before leaving with an injury, but even at that point, Mostert was already going bonkers. By the time the first half ended, Mostert had racked up 160 yards and three touchdowns on just 14 carries. In so doing, he became only the fifth player in NFL history to run for 160 or more yards and three touchdowns on the ground in a playoff game ... and he still had a full half to go. … [Read more...] about NFC Championship 2020: 49ers’ Raheem Mostert makes NFL history in dismantling of Packers
When Saha came back with the resurfacing of the same injury during the IPL, the bulletin doesn't say why he was not referred to a specialist immediately. At this stage, let it not be forgotten, despite two injections, Saha's shoulder was as bad as it had originally been four months previously. This should have sent the BCCI into panic. Why did nobody in the BCCI - the NCA claims the due communication was made at that time - act and try to withdraw Saha from the IPL? After all the BCCI had been managing the workload of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who incidentally played for the same franchise. … [Read more...] about How Wriddhiman Saha’s full injury story came to light
So I'm not too sure whether he still knows how to play those situations. When it comes to Test matches, you can still play your natural game whether it is 100 for 5 or 400 for 5. In T20 cricket, you are not really asked to do too many different things. But in a 50-overs game, in the middle order, you have to be a little more equipped in terms of handling different situations. My only concern is whether he is ready to do that as of now. … [Read more...] about The Rishabh Pant question: In or out of India’s World Cup squad?
