Saini, who scalped two wickets while conceding only 18 runs in his four overs quota, was named the man of the match at the Holkar Stadium in Indore – the very venue where he played against Vidarbha in the Ranji Trophy final back in 2018. Soon after, leggie Yuzvendra Chahal, who was not picked for the game, interviewed him (Saini) and Shardul Thakur on his famous Chahal TV and was all praise for his RCB colleague for his flawless yorkers. However, Chahal also took a cheeky dig at Saini by labelling him as ‘Yorker Queen’.

Skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to bowl first as the Indian bowlers put up a fantastic display, restricting the Lanka batsmen to 142 for nine wickets in 20 overs.Although Saini was the star among the bowlers with his sensational figures of 4-0-18-2, Shardul Thakur also impressed the fans, picking up three wickets in the 19th over.With a target of 143, openers Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul started the Indian innings brilliantly, with their 71 runs partnership. But after their dismissals, it was Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer who put up a 51-run stand for the third wicket, guiding India to a comfortable victory.As for Sri Lanka, only Wanindu Hasaranga was the pick among their bowlers, with two wickets to his name in four overs.The final game of the series will be played at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Friday.You might also like:Fan constructs remarkable Virat Kohli potrait using old phone parts!Sourav Ganguly: Rishabh Pant is a ‘special talent’ but selection depends on selectors Advertisementlast_img read more

ULSTER PLAYER OF YEAR LACEY WILL BE FIT TO FACE AUSSIES

first_imgDonegal’s classt defender Karl Lacey hopes to be fit to feature for Ireland in next month’s International Rules series. Lacey has undergone keyhole surgery to his knee after picking up an injury when tackled by Barry Cahill in the Tir Chonaill County’s defeat to Dublin in last month’s All-Ireland SFC semi-final. The Four Masters clubman, who this week was named Ulster Footballer of the Year, is expected to be fine to take part with the provisional Irish squad that will meet ahead of the series with Australia though, with Donegal selector Rory Gallagher optimistic of his chances.“It’s minor enough – just a wee cleanout basically,” said Gallagher.“There’s no big fear that it’s anything major and he’ll probably only be out for a couple of weeks. We’d be expecting him to be part of it (the Irish provisional squad).“If everything goes according to plan, he should be back and in contention for that. It (the injury) was a direct result of that bang in the Dublin game.” On the defeat to the Dubs at Croke Park, an honest Gallagher added: “We weren’t happy, but at the same time Dublin deserved their victory in the end.”ULSTER PLAYER OF YEAR LACEY WILL BE FIT TO FACE AUSSIES was last modified: September 10th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGAAkarl laceylast_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — December 18, 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ryan Martin 171218We have a fairly calm start to the week. Moisture so far over Ohio has been pretty minor. We do have to deal with lingering moisture through the day today, and in many cases, but we do not expect much. With the clouds we are only looking at minor precipitation, spits and sprinkles here and there, for a total of no more than a few hundredths to .15” over 40% of the state.Tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday look dry with better sunshine potential. Temps remain normal to above normal and we will see no snow left anywhere in the state by late this week (there is only minor snow cover remaining in northern Indiana as of this morning anyway, a lot of which was in areas that have not been able to see as much sun. We see good west winds through the period, with a turn to the strong southwest not likely until late in the week.On Friday, we see those southwest winds develop, and clouds build quickly. However moisture is slower to arrive and we are projecting now only a few hit and miss showers for Friday during the day. Much better moisture fills in overnight Friday night through Saturday the 23rd. Through Saturday midday we can see .25”-.75” over 90% of the state. Some models are trying to put much heavier rain in over southern Indiana with thunderstorms, but we are not going there yet. This Saturday precipitation will be the start of what could be a very interesting holiday weekend.The balance of Saturday and most of Sunday will be dry, but colder air tries to come in from the NW. Meanwhile, moisture continues to flow up the old, stalled frontal boundary sitting to our south. Eventually, Christmas Eve night we see this moisture surge back north, covering most of the state by Christmas morning. Cold air maintains its advance from the northwest, setting up a potential rain in the south changing to snow in the central and to light snow in the north kind of set up for early Christmas morning. And, the precipitation continues through Christmas day, adding to snows in the central and north. The precipitation finally leaves Tuesday the 26th, by midday. It is way too early to project where heavy snows and problem spots will be, and we expect the track of this system to change over the next few days. But, this is the “headline event” of the weather over the next 10 days, especially since it dances around Christmas itself. The map above shows total precipitation from the 22nd through early the 27th. This will have rain, but some of these totals can be snow, depending on where the cold air set up and when!Behind that system, the bitter cold air is coming in and parking over the state. Temps will be well below normal through the turn of the month. We should be mostly dry through the extended window, but a strong complex developing in the southern plains needs to be watched for the New Year’s weekend too…as that is an area we watch closely for winter storm development.last_img read more

Ohio State students not surprised by Terrelle Pryors departure

Terrelle Pryor’s time at Ohio State has come to an end. OSU students aren’t surprised. Larry James, Pryor’s attorney, said Pryor will forgo his senior season. Through James, Pryor released a statement on Tuesday to The Lantern. “In the best interest of my teammates, I’ve made the decision to forgo my senior year of football at the Ohio State University,” Pryor said. Pryor’s decision comes in the wake of former head coach Jim Tressel’s resignation and multiple reports saying that the NCAA launched an independent investigation of the star athlete for allegedly receiving discounts on vehicles throughout his tenure at OSU. OSU students weren’t surprised by the news of Pryor’s departure. “I’m not surprised,” said Andrew Leggett, a first-year in pharmaceutical sciences. “I’ve felt like it was going to happen for awhile.” Pryor has long been a polarizing figure in the Buckeye community and his departure is no different. “I feel like it would be better if he stayed,” said Aaron Wendel, a first-year in health sciences, “because he’s not ready for the NFL I don’t think.” Not everyone agreed. “I don’t think he was going to be able to play next season anyway,” said Paul Warren, a first-year in Biology. “It’s probably in his best interest (to leave).” Pryor’s 31-4 record as a starter makes him the second-winningest quarterback in OSU history, trailing only former Buckeye quarterback Art Schlichter. Pryor threw for 6,177 yards and 57 touchdowns while rushing for 2,164 yards and 17 touchdowns. James said Pryor hasn’t decided what the next step in his career will be. Some have suggested Pryor could enter the NFL’s supplemental draft. Many question whether Pryor’s skills can translate to the next level. “I don’t think he’s going to do anything (in the NFL),” Leggett said. “I don’t think he’s ready. I don’t think he has the ability to read defenses or make throws. I think he’s done.” Others think Pryor’s raw athletic ability is too good for NFL teams to turn down. “I think he can make (the NFL),” Warren said. “I think he’s athletically gifted. If he wants to, he’ll be able to.” OSU’s next step at quarterback is just as uncertain Pryor’s. Joe Bauserman, Kenny Guiton, and Braxton Miller spent spring practice vying to replace Pryor, who was facing a five-game suspension for selling memorabilia and accepting improper benefits. Now, in wake of Pryor’s absence, the trio of inexperienced quarterbacks will have to lead the Buckeyes for the entire season. “I don’t know who the next quarterback will be so it will be interesting to see what happens next year,” said Amy Hoffmeister, a third-year in human development and family science. read more

Credit: Sal Marandino | For The LanternThe Ohio State baseball team will take a hot offense up against the solid pitching staff of Hawaii. The Buckeyes (10-10) hope to continue their winning ways at home against the Rainbow Warriors (9-11) in a four-game series starting Thursday.

In four home games this season, Ohio State has hit .355 with six home runs for an average of 8.5 runs a game. The explosive offense of Ohio State will be tested against a Hawaii squad that boasts several successful pitchers. Redshirt junior pitcher Dylan Thomas has a 1.50 ERA in 24 innings pitched this season. Thomas has thrown 13 innings as a starter, including an 11-strikeout start against Longwood University. Sophomore pitcher Jeremy Wu-Yelland has the most innings pitched for Hawaii. He holds a 4.13 ERA and 24 strikeouts in five starts. The Rainbow Warriors hold a team ERA of 4.20, while averaging 8.35 strikeouts a game. Offensively, Hawaii bats .256 as a team. However, more than 42 percent of the team’s hits come from three starters.The team’s top hitter is freshman outfielder Scotty Scott, who bats .325. Scott has started all 20 games for the Rainbow Warriors and leads the team with five steals on eight attempts. Sophomore first baseman Alex Baeza leads Hawaii with 20 RBIs, as well as four home runs and a .319 batting average. The last of Hawaii’s big three is senior shortstop Maaki Yamazaki. He has a .304 batting average to go with 13 RBIs. The series between Ohio State and Hawaii takes place at Bill Davis Stadium, and will open up with a 5:05 p.m. game on Thursday. This will be followed by a 5:05 p.m. Friday game, a 3:05 p.m. game on Saturday and a 1:05 p.m. finale on Sunday. read more

However, he also confirmed the offer was rejected.Doan has played a key part this season for his team as he has been able to score eight goals and three assists – a player of that rank is certainly out of Groningen’s pocket.

Driving the LM002 Lamborghinis iconic Ur Urus

first_img 2020 Audi R8 first drive: Improving an already fantastic supercar More From Roadshow Post a comment The pedals, meanwhile, require leg strength. The clutch has the kind of heavy, long throw you’d expect from an Italian V12-powered truck from the ’80s. That’s no surprise, but I hadn’t expected a similarly reluctant throttle. Drive an LM as a daily and you’ll never have to worry about skipping leg day at the gym.The dogleg, five-speed manual has long throws but is easy to operate within the 6,500 rev limit. You might be thinking you’d always be probing that limiter just to hear the engine sing. That’s what I thought, but the engine note is a bit disappointing. Sure, it sounds better than most any other SUV on the market today, and it’s in a different league from military machines like the Hummer, but the evocative roar of the Countach sadly gets lost somewhere within the depths of the LM’s exhaust system.And performance? Some 444 horsepower are supposedly available, but I’ll be damned if I could find them. While a significant number have surely gone to pasture in the decades since this example’s manufacture, the LM’s titanic curb weight is surely to blame for its sluggish acceleration. Lamborghini LM002Like nothing before, or since, and that’s probably for the best.  Lamborghini Final thoughtsSo the LM is slow, clumsy, heavy and not particularly sonorous. A terrible thing, then, right? Oh no, it’s quite the opposite. The LM002 is a hoot to drive. It’s so raw and ridiculous that my brief period behind the wheel was spent smiling — despite how many times I had to wind that wheel over for even the mildest turns.The LM is an icon of a bygone era the likes of which I’m quite confident we’ll never, ever see again. Heck, we probably shouldn’t have seen it in the first place. Lamborghini’s modern SUV, the Urus, is a marvel of modern engineering that drives far better than it rightfully should. The LM002, meanwhile, is a ridiculous idea executed with the sort of gusto only 1980s Lamborghini could deliver. And for that, I love it. Lamborghini LM002 is an SUV from another time 2019 Lamborghini Urus review: Part SUV, part supercar A little historyLM stands for “Lamborghini Militaria,” and that’s your first clue as to how this boxy beast came to be. In the late ’70s, Lamborghini saw an opportunity to get into the government supply business, to create a product that could be bought by the truckload by over-funded, style-conscious military outfits around the globe in search of a dune-conquering battlefield machine. Things wouldn’t quite go according to plan. Lamborghini started with the Cheetah, the granddaddy of the LM, powered by a rear-mounted V8 sourced from Chrysler of all places. That prototype, part of a failed attempt to gain a US military contract, led to the LM001 a few years later. That vehicle fit in very much the same mold and was still powered by a rear-mounted, American V8 — though this one came from AMC. That machine, too, effectively went nowhere.Finally, Lamborghini engineers decided they’d put the engine in the more traditional position for off-road rigs: up in the nose. That was a step in the right direction, but in the process, those engineers leapt wildly off the beaten path by swapping out the cheap, reliable American V8 for a V12. And not just any V12: It’s the same 5.2-liter lump that powered the LM’s stablemate, the Countach. If you had a front-mounted V12 you’d have a big nose, too. Lamborghini The architectural challenge required to sling an engine that big into the nose of an off-roader, a vehicle designed for things like approach angles and wading depth, boggles the mind. Even more remarkable is the brazenness of the decision. This was, remember, a military machine. Can you imagine a battlefield mechanic keeping an Italian V12 running reliably? With hindsight, it’s easy to see why the LM was neither a commercial nor combat success. Only about 300 were ever produced from the machine’s introduction in 1986 to its discontinuation six years later. This has lead to sky-high valuations. In 2017, one sold at an RM Sotheby’s auction for $300,000, and given the recent spike of interest in the vehicle, some estimates put current valuations closer to $400,000.Thanks to its small production run, half that even of the incredibly rare Miura, spotting an LM002 today at an auto show is a treat. Seeing one running is practically unheard of. Getting to drive one? That, dear readers, makes for a special day.Lamborghini LM002Wider corners are better when driving the LM002. Lamborghini The driveDespite looking positively massive in photos, the LM is actually petite by modern SUV dimensions. It’s shorter and lower than the new Urus, Lamborghini’s ballistic, 641-horsepower SUV. Despite that, the LM is heavier. So, so much heavier. Curb weight for the LM002 is 5,900 pounds. That’s 1,000 pounds more than the Urus! Looking at the thing, it’s hard to tell where all the weight is, but surely a big chunk lingers under the disproportionately long hood. That the V12 drinks from a 45-gallon fuel tank doesn’t help its weight problem. It’s necessary though, because while Lamborghini quotes no efficiency figures, the Countach with the same motor was EPA-rated at a measly 7 miles per gallon. The LM weighs nearly twice as much and has all the aerodynamic finesse of a Walmart Super Center. It’s not a difficult climb up to the driver’s seat and into a massive cockpit covered with huge expanses of leather and wood. The external theme of wide, flat surfaces continues on the inside, so much so that it feels more like a yacht than an SUV — a surprisingly cramped yacht, though. Appropriately, if the 5.2-liter engine wasn’t big enough, Lamborghini offered a marine-sourced 7.2-liter V12 instead!That nautical impression was reinforced the first time I tried to turn out of the parking lot. Your average car requires something like two or three turns to go lock-to-lock on the steering. I’m not sure how many turns the LM requires, because I lost count, and I can count pretty high. Suffice to say hustling the LM through a tiny, Italian roundabout is an exercise both of quick hands and upper-body strength.

Former Police Officer Creates Clothing Line to Support Victims of Traumatic Injuries

first_imgFormer Baltimore City police officer Teresa Rigby-Menendez, founder of Survivor Wear Inc.Former Baltimore City Police officer Teresa Rigby-Menendez does not remember the day that cut short her law enforcement career. Just over three years on the force, Rigby-Menendez had been assisting a motorist on I-83 when an oncoming vehicle lost control and slammed into her stopped patrol car, pushing the service vehicle into Rigby-Menendez and causing her to fall off the highway, a 30 foot drop.Three years later, Rigby-Menendez is still working through her physical recovery. Forced to retire due to her injuries, she has found another way to give back. Combining her desire for service and the lessons she learned through her rehabilitation, Rigby-Menendez has founded Survivor Wear Inc., a clothing line designed to raise awareness about traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and the need for long-term support for those who have experienced trauma.“Normally, when people are injured, sometimes [others] forget about them, especially when they look as if they’re doing a little bit better,” said Rigby-Menendez about the importance of realizing that recovery from injury, and especially traumatic brain injury, is a long-term process that continues well beyond the point someone leaves the hospital.Rigby-Menendez can attest to this, as she continues to deal with the psychological scars from the accident. She continues to work through a fear of being in automobiles, regardless of who is driving; of driving on I-83; and of heights. For the first year after her accident, Rigby-Menendez required company at all times and is still working to feel comfortable being left alone.Her recovery is still a reality she lives daily, but Rigby-Menendez credits a personal support system with all the progress she has made over the last three years. She believes this system is important to all trauma victims, and has sought to highlight it through Survivor Wear. “A lot of people that are injured resort to alcohol, or become addicted to their medication, or things like that, and they don’t have anybody there for them to back them up, and I was just trying to figure out a way that we can just work together and support one another so that we don’t have to resort to those other escapes,” said Rigby-Menendez.Her personal support system is in place and has rallied around Rigby-Menendez’s Survivor Wear initiative. Her husband, William Menendez, is vice president of Survivor Wear, and Rigby-Menendez’s sister serves as secretary.For William Menendez, Survivor Wear is important because it’s a chance for his wife to remain working in service to the public. “She’s retired, and she couldn’t give back again by patrolling the streets, and the only way she could give back to the community and the city was in [this] way.”The Survivor Wear line currently consists of eight different baseball-cap style hats with variations on the ‘survivor’ theme. The hats are available online at www.survivorwearinc.com and proceeds are donated to the Brain Injury Association of Maryland. Survivor Wear’s 501(c)(3) status is currently pending and Rigby-Menendez says she is in the process of developing Survivor Wear jackets and t-shirts.“The way I see it is when you’re wearing it, or when you support survivor wear, you purchase a hat, you should wear it with pride,” said Rigby-Menendez. “No matter what you’re going through, you had a traumatic experience or you’re dealing with everyday life, you wake up in the morning, you’re surviving.”last_img read more

Bridging the fashion divide

first_imgThe different techniques of embroidery, colour combinations and stitching methods have embellished the creative attires adorned by fashion aficionados since time immemorial. Creative trends in fashion today have managed to reach a much wider audience through various mediums such as films, TV and the internet. Between India and Pakistan, the proximity had enabled the transfer of various techniques of embroidery since the pre-partition era, a time when people knew about Chikankari or Multani Tanka. Later, as political complications restricted it, the need for another way of accessing the latest trends, arose.
