World Cup final was both the best and worst day of my cricketing life: Martin Guptill

first_imgMartin Guptill finally opened up on the epic Cricket World Cup 2019 final match, describing the England-New Zealand clash as the best and worst day of his career.The New Zealand opener was involved in probably two of the most important moments of the July 14 final at Lord’s, the result of which was eventually decided on boundary count after both the teams could not be separated after the end of the allotted 100 overs and the subsequent Super Overs.”Hard to believe it’s been a week since that incredible Final at Lords. I think it was both the best and worst day of my cricketing life! So many different emotions, but mainly proud to represent New Zealand and play for the Black Caps alongside a great group of mates. Thank you to everyone for all your support, it has been amazing,” Guptill said in an emotional Instagram post on Tuesday.At the fag end of the final of the World Cup 2019, England had looked down and out as New Zealand’s death bowlers seemed to have created a vice-like grip over the match, not giving Ben Stokes room to hit the big shots.advertisementIn the final over of England’s chase with the team needing 9 to win off 3 balls, Guptill’s throw from deep mid-wicket region struck a diving Ben Stokes’s bat on the full at the striker’s end and the ball raced away to the boundary behind the wicketkeeper. Thus, instead of 2 runs, England got awarded 6 bringing the equation down to 3 required off 2 balls – a much more achievable target, even though Trent Boult ensured a tie.When the match went into the Super Over, Guptill found himself on the field again but this time he had the responsibility to score 16 off 6 balls to bring New Zealand home their maiden World Cup. On the last delivery of the Super Over Guptill was on strike with his side needing 2 off 1 but he only managed to dig out Jofra Archer’s full delivery to Jason Roy at deep mid-wicket. As he scampered for the 2nd run, Roy’s throw found Jos Buttler’s gloves at the striker’s end, who dislodged the stumps in a flash. Guptill desperately dived to cross the crease but was found well short when the bails were dislodged bringing an end to a crazy Lord’s evening.As the England players celebrated in ecstasy, Guptill stayed motionless with his head sulking trying to make sense of what had just transpired. Soon he was being comforted by his teammates and even Chris Woakes came up to him to offer words of encouragement.When the dust finally settled on the exhilarating Lord’s evening, Guptill wouldn’t be faulted for still wondering what went on with him at World Cup 2019. He couldn’t have imagined the events of the past 6 weeks before, but he is sure to be revisited by them for a long time to come.Also Read | Martin Guptill’s World Cup story: Poor run with the bat, crucial run-outs and a heartbreaking overthrowAlso Read | Didn’t want to feel the pain and regret of losing another final: Jos ButtlerAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Stokes asked umpire to take off four overthrows during final, claims Andersonlast_img read more

Koscielny wary of ‘free’ Pogba & Martial

first_imgLaurent Koscielny is wary of facing Marcus Rashford, who has “progressed a lot”, while the “freedom” offered to Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial also concerns the Arsenal defender ahead of a meeting with Manchester United.The Gunners are set to play host to the Red Devils in a heavyweight FA Cup fourth round encounter on Friday.AdChoices广告Unai Emery is likely to offer club captain Koscielny an outing from the start in that contest, with the Frenchman back in favour after returning from a long-term injury-enforced absence. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? It could be that the 33-year-old is faced by a couple of familiar faces, with Pogba and Martial flying again for United, while an in-form Rashford may form the focal point of an attack which has been rejuvenated across seven successive victories under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.Koscielny told Arsenal Media of the challenges posed by Rashford: “I think he’s progressed a lot.“He’s gone forward in every year and he’s getting better in his career. He’s still young and he’s still learning about the top level, and has the quality as well to progress in different parts of his game. “I think they have a lot of good strikers at their club with Martial, [Jesse] Lingard, [Romelu] Lukaku and so on.“I think their danger can come from any side. You need to be careful of everyone on the pitch.”Paul Pogba Man Utd 2019He added on Solskjaer’s impact at Old Trafford and the spark rekindled in key men: “Their results show the difference with the new manager.“After that, I don’t know what he’s changed in the squad but I think they play more together, with more freedom maybe, and you can see that with Martial or Pogba. They have more freedom on the pitch.“When you play with this freedom, you have more confidence in your quality and you can show that on the pitch.”While United will head to north London buoyed by an impressive run of form, Arsenal are coming off the back of a 2-0 derby victory over Chelsea and are feeling pretty good about their own game.“For a football player, this is a typical game that you want to play in,” said Koscielny.“Afterwards, the result is another thing, but you are very excited to play against big teams, big clubs, with lots of history in the competition. It’s very important to be focused on this.”last_img read more

IRS officer Neeraj Singh responds to allegations

first_imgNew Delhi: To begin, I have never been accused of corruption or criminal conspiracy, neither have I been put to notice for such acts by multiple or any law enforcing authority, as alleged in your news report dated June 27, 2019. I have dutifully and promptly replied to any query on any matter raised by the department, qua me, and nothing is pending from my side. It is factually incorrect to allege that I was overseeing investigative operations of the Income Tax (IT) department when a search by Kolkata Police brought out documents recovered from Govind Agarwal. Further, attributing my connection with Rose Valley chairman Goutam Kundu is equally wrong as I have been posted in Mumbai since 2015. In addition to this, I have never conducted any search/investigation against any chit fund company, including Rose Valley. All searches by the IT department on chit fund companies were carried out sometime in 2012 – definitely before I joined the Investigation wing of the IT department at Kolkata. Also Read – Ahead of Xi’s visit, China says Kashmir issue should be resolved bilaterally; drops UN referencesFurther, allegations that a slew of documents were recovered from the offices of Govind Agarwal, revealing a long corruption racket, is conjectural and without any iota of evidence. As stated earlier, I share no connection with Goutam Kundu or Subhra Kundu. Further, the allegation that Govind Agarwal was a front man is baseless and sensational. I, along with my family members, have no interest of any nature in any company or firm operated by Govind Agarwal. The allegation that I have travelled with the Kundus and Agarwal to Port Blair is unsubstantiated, as is the allegation that Agarwal has borne the travel and hotel bills for my family and me. As regards the allegation regarding the plot of land at Port Blair, neither my family members nor I have had anything to do with any property in Port Blair. Also Read – Rajnath Singh arrives for Rafale handover ceremony in FranceI don’t know Ranjit Sinha and, therefore, the question of me introducing anybody to him does not arise. I have never visited Astor Hotel with Subhra, as alleged. My wife has never made any purchases of gold from Adrija Gold, again as alleged. It is factually incorrect to say that I have been posted in Mumbai from May 2017, as I had been transferred to Mumbai way back in 2015. The allegation that I have been president of Chirag United, a football club, is incorrect as I have been never associated with any football club. Further, that I have travelled to Thailand in 2015 is also incorrect, as I have not travelled there during or after 2015. The allegation of using shell companies or paper companies to launder money on my behalf is far from the truth – in fact, I have investigated many shell companies, brought them to books and crippled that flourishing industry. Therefore, it is likely that I have made enemies, and it is quite possible that some of them are spreading these baseless canards. Further, that a credit balance of Rs 8.5 crore was found in an account of my minor son is definitely a figment of the imagination. As regards the allegation of investigating corruption by CBI in 2004 is concerned, this was again a case of vindictive complaints and the allegation there was that my wife got a job because of my official position (not of any bribery). The CBI investigated thoroughly and closed the case. This has been duly accepted by the special court of CBI, exonerating me – raking it up here, fully knowing the facts, exposes the vindictiveness of the informant/source. With regards to allegations of reports/files belonging to IT department being found in Agarwal’s premises, I must reinstate that I have been in Mumbai since 2015, after duly handing over charge to my successor. Gathering from the news report, the papers mentioned therein would be in the custody of multiple authorities and thus, to put any allegation on me is far-fetched. Especially because they were found two years after I had already handed over the charge. I have handled extremely sensitive cases while posted at Kolkata and elsewhere, and have made many people unhappy by enforcing the law diligently without fear or favour. In fact, it was on account of certain differences while being posted there that I had chosen, voluntarily, to come out of the investigation wing and Kolkata, much before the complaints or alleged actions by any enforcement agency has been reported – this is well-documented. I take this opportunity to strongly deny all allegations and innuendos made in the news report – they are baseless and without credible evidence.last_img read more

Guyana one step closer to manufacturing fish food

Guyana is one step closer to producing locally manufactured fish food. Efforts toward this end are being spearheaded by the Ministry of Agriculture, Satyadeow Sawh Aquaculture station at Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara (ECD.)Fisheries Officer, Nieketa DookieFisheries Officer, Nieketa Dookie told the Department of Public Information (DPI) that the production of fish food from local inputs is one of three experimental projects being undertaken by the aquaculture station.“We had two feed trials. One concerns us producing a locally made feed and comparing that to the imported.” Dookie explained. She added that the other feed trail is aimed at investigating the effect of alternate days feeding.In addition, Dookie who has responsibilities for aquaculture said the research on producing locally manufactured fish food is being aided by the Government of Japan.“We worked along with a Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) volunteer this year to produce a local feed. We were successful in terms of the feed’s physical characteristic remaining intact, that is it won’t disintegrate too quickly into the water. That trial is ongoing,” the aquaculture specialist explained.According to the DPI, the production of fish food locally will be done using local inputs, and will aid in government’s drive to diversify agriculture in the hinterland regions and reduce cost of production.“We would be sourcing local ingredients that are pretty dominant in areas so that they can use it as fish feed, especially in interior locations where importing a commercial feed would be very costly. Utilising those ingredients that are local to them in a fish feed to promote fish rearing activities would be a boost” Dookie added.In 2001, the Mon Repos Aquaculture Station was established with the main aim of producing fingerlings and advancing aquaculture technology. The station consisted of one residence, one laboratory and ten concrete ponds. The station was dedicated to slain Agriculture Minister Satyadeow Sawh in August 2009.

ASA Opposes Proposed Cut to Crop Insurance Restructuring of Food Aid in

first_imgProposed cuts to crop insurance and a restructuring of the nation’s food aid programs drew criticism from the nation’s soybean farmers today as the American Soybean Association (ASA) weighed in on the proposed 2014 budget from President Barack Obama. Included in the budget is a proposed $7.4 billion reduction in the federal crop insurance program.“As ASA has said many times over, soybean farmers are willing to do our part to address the nation’s fiscal challenges, and we have a vested interest in ensuring that the cuts needed are made in a strategic manner, with all potential consequences taken into account. As many farmers still struggle to recover from the worst drought in generations, now is not the time to make such a deep cut to the federal crop insurance program,” said Danny Murphy, ASA President and a soybean farmer from Canton, Miss.“Farming is an industry grounded in uncertainty, whether with regard to markets, prices, drought or rainfall, and we assume a huge risk when we put seed in the ground each planting season,” Murphy stated. “Farmers are not alone in assuming that risk. The crops we plant produce a variety of foods and other products that Americans depend on every day. Crop insurance is a critical tool to ensure that not only are part of the risks covered for American farmers, but also for the millions of Americans who count on what we produce.”In addition to the proposed cuts to crop insurance, ASA reiterated its strong opposition to a proposed restructuring of the nation’s international food aid programs. The proposed change would replace in-kind aid with cash vouchers for purchases of food aid from foreign suppliers instead of commodities grown by American farmers. The proposal would shift jurisdiction over $1.5 billion from the House and Senate Agriculture Committees to Foreign Operations, and provide that only 55 percent of food aid be purchased from American farmers.“Federal food aid programs provide nutrition to impoverished people in developing countries, and we remain absolutely opposed to the replacement of in-kind aid with cash, which takes a key market away from American producers and places aid recipients at risk by allowing purchases from suppliers whose safety and quality are unknown. The proposal would also adversely affect shipping and logistics providers, packaging companies, and private voluntary organizations,” Murphy added.Murphy did point out that not all was negative in the President’s budget. Several of ASA’s top priorities were reflected in the proposal, including both agricultural research and infrastructure. “A significant positive in the budget is the investment in agricultural research, including $383 million for competitive grants through the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI),” Murphy said. “Also encouraging is the President’s $50 billion commitment to ports and inland waterways through his ‘Fix It First’ program, and the goal of cutting timelines in half for major infrastructure projects, including ports and waterways.”###ASA represents all U.S. soybean farmers on domestic and international issues of importance to the soybean industry. ASA’s advocacy efforts are made possible through voluntary farmer membership by farmers in 30 states where soybeans are grown.For more information contact:Danny Murphy, ASA President, 601-906-3809, dpmurphy@bellsouth.netPatrick Delaney, ASA Communications Director, 202-969-7040, pdelaney@soy.orglast_img read more

MercedesAMG CLA35 teaser promises a more powerful swoopycoupe sedan

first_imgEnlarge ImageYou know, for a while, I wasn’t sure the CLA35 would be offered in a bright enough paint color. This teaser puts my mind at ease. Mercedes-Benz It’s only been a couple weeks since Mercedes-AMG unveiled the A35 ahead of its debut at the New York Auto Show, but it appears there’s a second hot four-door on its tail.Mercedes-Benz today published a teaser for the Mercedes-AMG CLA35, a hotter version of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, itself a more stylish version of the A-Class. The automaker didn’t offer up much information in the post, saying only that the car is “stunning from every angle” and that there’s “more to come.”In all likelihood, the CLA35 will be more or less the same, powertrain-wise, as the A35, given the shared number on the badge. If that pans out, that means the CLA35 will wield a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 that makes 302 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, a fair bump over the CLA250’s 221-hp, 258-lb-ft engine, which is already about 30 hp above the A220’s four-pot.In terms of performance, the A35 is able to reach 60 miles per hour in just 4.7 seconds, so it stands to reason that the CLA35 will get there in about the same amount of time. Other additions to the A35 that we should expect to see on the CLA35 include a stiffer suspension, bigger brakes and a retuned variable steering system. Mercedes-Benz has not confirmed where it will debut the CLA35, but considering the A35 is slated to make an appearance at the New York Auto Show, it wouldn’t be obscene to assume a pair of debuts in about a fortnight’s time. Either that, or Mercedes could give it a separate debut in the near future to space the two out. The New York Auto Show kicks off in just under two weeks, so it won’t be long until we find out.

Walmart follows eBay Target in offering challenge to Amazon Prime Day

first_img 3 HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. Tags Amazon Prime Day Internet Services See at Turo Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. Walmart is getting in on the effort to upstage Amazon’s Prime Day sale in July. Robyn Beck/Getty Images The third week of July is shaping up to be an online retailer battle royale, with challengers looking to upset Amazon’s Prime Day sale. After eBay and Target announced sales to coincide with Amazon’s, Walmart.com is throwing its hat in the ring with a sale of its own.Like eBay and Target, Walmart is hoping to steal some of Amazon’s thunder by kicking off its sale a day before Prime Day, which will start July 15. Walmart said Wednesday that it’ll release thousands of special buys and Rollbacks on Walmart.com during an online sale that begins July 14 and runs through July 17.Walmart promises savings on electronics, video games, home items, fashion and toys. Some of the items already revealed include the HP 15.6-inch HD Touch Display laptop computer for $429 ($150 below list) and the Dyson Multifloor Bagless Upright Vacuum for $154 (a savings of $125).Customers whose orders are greater than $35 will receive free two-day shipping or free NextDay delivery without a membership, depending on eligibility and the buyer’s location.On Monday, Amazon said its Prime Day 2019 sale will start July 15 just after midnight Pacific Time and run for 48 hours, its longest sale ever after last year’s 36 hours of deals. See It What’s cooler: A snapshot of a firework exploding in front of you, or full 360-degree video of all the fireworks and all the reactions to seeing them? Oooh, ahhh, indeed. At $250, the compact Rylo dual-lens camera is selling for its lowest price yet. And for an extra $50, you can get the bundle that includes the waterproof housing.This deal runs through Sept. 3; it usually costs $500.

At $59, this is within a buck of the best price we’ve seen. It lists for $129 and sells elsewhere in the $89-to-$99 range.This is one item of many available as part of eBay’s Labor Day Sale (which, at this writing, doesn’t specifically mention Labor Day, but that’s how it was pitched to us).

I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free.

Sprint Sarah Tew/CNET Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case: $155 (save $45) $999 Free Echo Dot with an Insignia or Toshiba TV (save $50) Walmart Amazon Prime Amazon eBay,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. Comments Share your voice The Cheapskate Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners.
