highlights New Delhi: Yuvraj Singh, India’s greatest match-winner who recently announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket, showed that class is permanent as he put in a brilliant display in the Global T20 League competition which thrilled the crowd present for the clash in Brampton. Playing for the Toronto Nationals, Yuvraj struck some brilliant hits and was well assisted by a knock of 43 from 24 balls by former India player Manpreet Gony as their team Toronto Nationals won a high-scoring thriller against Edmonton Royals by two wickets in the Global T20 clash at the CAA Centre on Saturday. In a match which was reduced to 19 overs due to rain, Toronto Nationals chose to field against Edmonton Royals. Faf du Plessis, the Edmonton skipper, smashed three sixes in his knock of 24 but the innings was given great impetus by Ben Cutting’s knock of 43 off 24 balls which included one four and four sixes and Shadab Khan’s 36 off 17 balls. The 65-run stand between Cutting and Shadab helped Edmonton Royals reach 191/6. In response, Toronto Nationals started poorly as they lost two quick wickets but Heinrich Klassen and Yuvraj Singh steadied the ship with a 56-run stand.Also Read | Life After Dhoni: Prasad backs young Pant for all three formatsYuvraj looked in brilliant touch right from the start as he creamed a boundary off Safyaan Sharif to get off the mark in style. The left-hander thrilled the audience when he straight drove Jimmy Neesham to the boundary straight down the ground and he raised the tempo with a brilliant six down the ground off Shadab. The Pakistan legspinner bore the brunt of Yuvraj’ onslaught as he was hit for a four and a six in the same over while he greeted Cutting with a flicked six over deep midwicket. However, his innings ended on 35 off 21 balls when he chipped a full ball back to the bowler.Also Read | Twitter Reactions: Lasith Malinga retires from ODI cricket with ‘win’ on and off the fieldHowever, Gony changed the course of the game when he smashed three fours and a six in Neesham’s over and two sixes in Kyle Phillip’s over. Despite scoring no fifties and with a required rate of over 10, Toronto Nationals still won the game by two wickets with Gony being awarded the Man of the Match. However, Yuvraj’s knock made amends for his poor show in the first match where he struggled to make 14 off 27 balls and he walked off despite not been dismissed. With this knock, fans in Brampton saw a glimpse of India’s ultimate match-winner doing what he does best, which is winning matches.

JEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoCHICAGO — Things didn’t turn out all that bad for the Badgers after all.Following a bitter loss to Ohio State in the Big Ten tournament title, Wisconsin found out that they had earned a No. 2 seed — the highest ever for a UW team — in the Midwest regional. The Badgers get a first-round matchup with 15-seeded Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, winners of the Southland Conference tournament. What the Badgers might’ve lost in seeding Sunday was made up for in location, as the team will return back to the United Center next Friday and, should they make the Sweet 16, will be in the closest regional site, St. Louis.”What better situation could you ask for if you’re not a No. 1 seed,” said forward Alando Tucker. “We can’t be happier. … We’re excited that we are still in the Midwest. We’re back in the United Center, there was a sigh of relief [when we heard that].” Head coach Bo Ryan appreciated the proximity because of the ease of players’ families of making the trip, as well as the strong UW fan base.”Our people are good fans. They’re very supportive and know how to have a good time and enjoy sports, no matter what sport it is. Our fan base has got to be one of the best in the country. Hopefully, we’ll get some help from them this next weekend.”As for Wisconsin’s opening round opponent, the Islanders won conference regular season and tournament titles going 23-6 overall and 14-2 in league play. TAMCCU, the longest-named school in the tournament, beat Northwestern State 81-78 on Sunday afternoon to punch its ticket to the Big Dance.Though Texas A&M-Corpus Christi is regarded as sizeable underdogs to Wisconsin, that didn’t stop Tucker from being taken aback at first when he heard the matchup.”I heard Texas A&M and then they added on,” Tucker said, referring to the No. 3-seeded Big XII power. “So when I heard Texas A&M I was like, ‘Wow, that’s a tough matchup.'” The relatively unknown Islanders were something of a mystery to the rest of the Badgers, but not for long.”We’re going to know a heck of a lot more in the next 24 hours,” said Ryan. “It’s a good program. They’ve done a great job of getting it done, and in a tournament atmosphere. That’s pretty good stuff. I know they’re excited.”In fact, even the correct pronunciation of the school was something that needs a little practice.”Corpus Crispy, Corpus Christi, I can’t even say it,” Tucker said. “I’m not even going to try and say it anymore.”The Big Ten, tagged all season long as one of the weaker power conferences, earned the second most bids of any conference with six bids, as Ohio State (No. 1 seed), Indiana (7), Michigan State (9), Purdue (9) and Illinois (12) all will join UW in the tournament. “I think it’s phenomenal. I think as you go through a Big Ten season, it’s amazing what it takes to win in this conference,” Ohio State head coach Thad Matta said. “There’s great players, there’s great coaches, and for six of us to be in out of 11, I couldn’t be happier for the league. I think it’s just another statement of why the Big Ten is the Big Ten.” The ACC earned the most berths with seven, followed by the Pac-10, ACC and Big East all also will send six teams, while the SEC will send five and the Big XII four.”I think it’s great. I think it’s great for our conference,” said Ohio State’s Ron Lewis, whose team will be the top-seed in the South region. “It shows that we have a good conference and that we’re still building.” For the Badgers’ part, the announcement of the seeding was of some consolation coming off Wisconsin’s worst defeat of the season. The team expressed a want to hit the floor as soon as possible to wash the bitter tastes from their mouths.”I just want to get back out there and play … so we can get this one behind us and step back out on the hardwood,” sophomore forward Joe Krabbenhoft said. “You’re going to see a toughness you’ve never seen out of us, because we are going to use this as big time motivation to play Wisconsin basketball the way it’s supposed to be played.”Krabbenhoft vowed to erase the memory of Sunday’s contest to all who will watch the Badgers play in the NCAA tournament. “As a team, we’re hungry more than anybody has ever been. To go in there and prove to the world that what they saw today on national TV was not Wisconsin. What Wisconsin is what everybody is going to see in the NCAA tournament,” Krabbenhoft said.”I’m sure whoever we play is going to be a great team, and I’m not trying to give bulletin-board material, but they are going to run.”
In what might have been Syracuse’s most methodical drive all season, it made its intentions clear: SU wanted Dontae Strickland involved.Eight of SU’s first 13 plays were called runs to Strickland and the running back caught one pass on the drive, too. The SU running back racked up 45 total yards on the drive. It lasted 4 minutes 59 seconds, took 79 yards and ended with a Syracuse touchdown.“I have to give a lot of credit to my offensive line,” Strickland said. “Blocking schemes and play calling were great. All the credit goes to my offensive line. I couldn’t have gotten those yards without my offensive line.”Strickland had his best day as a Syracuse (1-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) running back on Saturday, racking up 127 yards on 30 carries in a 45-20 loss to South Florida (3-0). Despite getting 30 carries, Strickland didn’t score a touchdown. He also grabbed three catches for 17 yards.More CoverageAdvertisementThis is placeholder textWith shrinking margin of error against USF, Syracuse football makes too many mistakes in 45-20 lossSyracuse football loses control of game during 28-point 2nd quarter for South FloridaGallery: Syracuse football blows 17-point lead in loss to South Florida For the first time since the 2015 season opener, SU had a running back go over 100 yards. Strickland’s rushing yards surpassed SU’s total from each of the last two games against Colgate and Louisville.“It’s not really eating the hot hand,” Syracuse head coach Dino Babers said. “It once again ties into why we do certain things. They were taking certain things away, and it became Strickland’s day. Something we tell all of our personnel is you never know when your day is going to be.”On Saturday, Syracuse ran more four wide receiver sets than it had in games past, which helped spread out the USF defense. The offense is predicated on spreading teams out and then running up the middle against them, which the Orange did to the Bulls.Strickland didn’t break many long runs but did get one 19-yard run in.In the first two games of the season, Strickland tallied just 17 touches for 48 yards. His career day propelled SU to finish just short of its first 200-yard rushing game of the season. The Orange rushed for 199 yards on 55 carries.Like the rest of Syracuse’s offense, however, most of Strickland’s success came during the first quarter when he rushed for 75 yards on 15 carries —half his total rushes for the whole game. Even Strickland’s longest rush came during the quarter.“A lot of teams we have played recently feel like we don’t have a running game,” Strickland said. “I feel like this game established that we can run the ball on offense, so I’m pretty happy about that.” Comments Related Stories With shrinking margin of error against USF, Syracuse football makes too many mistakes in 45-20 lossDontae Strickland has career day in loss to South FloridaSyracuse football comes up short on 4th downs in loss to South FloridaStorify: Syracuse community reacts to 45-20 loss to USFGallery: Syracuse football blows 17-point lead in loss to South Florida Published on September 17, 2016 at 10:48 pm Contact Chris: firstname.lastname@example.org | @ChrisLibonati Facebook Twitter Google+

Consider donating today to support our mission.The Atlantic Coast Conference expects to make a decision on fall sports by the end of July, commissioner John Swofford said in a release. Swofford’s statement comes one day after the Big Ten announced a conference-only scheduling format this fall and Stadium’s Brett McMurphy reported soon after that the ACC would follow suit.But ESPN and The Athletic recently reported that a decision hadn’t been made yet, and Swofford reiterated Friday that the ACC is continuing “to work on the best possible path forward.”“Over the last few months, our conference has prepared numerous scenarios related to the fall athletics season,” Swofford said in the release. “The league membership and advisory will make every effort to be as prepared as possible during these unprecedented times.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn addition to the Big Ten’s announcement, the ACC also delayed all competitions for Olympic sports this fall until Sept. 1 and the Ivy League’s canceled fall sports altogether — a move that Syracuse Director of Athletics John Wildhack said was “anticipated.” The Orange have already lost their Sept. 12 nonconference football game at Rutgers, and it’s unclear how many SU teams will be affected by the other conferences’ decisions. Football’s schedule is the only one that SU Athletics has released.Wildhack said during a Zoom conference Thursday that conference-only scheduling is a possibility for the ACC, but multiple options are still being explored.“Obviously the goal would be to play a full schedule, we’ll see if events dictate that we’re allowed to do that or not,” Wildhack said.

Arsenal’s injured schemer Mesut Ozil picked up a “Sport For Good” prize last night at the annual Laureus awards following his decision to pay for 23 Brazilian children to have life-saving surgery this summer.The midfielder, who has somewhat struggled to find his best form with the Gunners as well as having to deal with a messy court case involving his own father this week, explained his decision to donate his World Cup-winning bonus to the seriously ill kids, saying:“We had the idea to help 23 children because we had 23 players in the squad. And they underwent surgery, which was successful. I am very thankful. The doctors did a great job. I am very happy because it goes well for the children.”The former Real Madrid playmaker has come under fire from many sections of the UK media for apparently not showing enough heart on the football pitch with Arsenal. However, no-one can accuse the 26-year-old of lacking heart when it comes to helping those rather less fortunate than himself.Other winners on the night at the Laureus awards were swimmer Missy Franklin and F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel, who won the sportswoman and sportsman of the years awards and Bayern Munich who were named team of the year

PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 9 – Victory over Ghana’s Black Queens has given Harambee Starlets hope of a first ever qualification to the Olympic Games, with only two teams now standing between them and a historic place in Tokyo 2020.Starlets beat the Ghanaians 1-0 via a Gentrix Shikangwa extra time penalty to progress to the penultimate qualification round where a tie against Zambia awaits. With giants Nigeria, South Africa and now Ghana ousted from the race to represent Africa in Rio, Starlets believe they have an opportunity to progress.“We really wanted to beat Ghana to qualify and now that we have, I don’t think there is any other team that we fear. I believe as a team we have what it takes to beat anyone and our confidence is now at an all time high. We are focused on the Olympics and we will work hard to achieve it,” a confident Shikangwa told Capital Sport.She added; “We don’t fear anyone. If we can beat Ghana, then we are confident of beating anyone. Our secret has been training hard and ensuring we do everything the correct way.”Skipper Dorcas Shikobe has meanwhile asker her teammates not to let their guards down and keep working hard to ensure they achieve history.“Everyone has a chance and we also have a chance. This is behind our backs now and we have to focus on the next assignment. We have the ability, we are working together as ateam and everyone wants the same thing,” the skipper stated.Victory over Starlets against Zambia will put them into a good position of qualifying to the Olympics. They will face the winner between Ivory Coast and Cameroon in the final. Winning the final gives them a direct ticket to Tokyo.A loss will mean they head into the repacharge where they face off with the losing team from the South American qualifiers.“We are bridging the gap between Kenya and the rest of the continent and we are showing the world that we are growing. What we have invested in terms of scouting for talent is clearly visible. We will continue working, continue fighting because the work is not yet finished. We still have a long way to go,” head coach David Ouma stated.Meanwhile, the team has called on the government to give them support in their quest to qualify for the Olympics. The team did not receive any financial backing from the government for the current qualifiers while they are owed allowances dating back to 2017.“The federation is doing what it can but the government has to come in and support the girls. We are now close to history and we need all the support we can,” the tactician offered.0Shares0000(Visited 17 times, 1 visits today)
Comcast is considering offering lower-priced services, such as an Internet and phone bundle, for customers who don’t get its cable TV. This is a “cultural shift” for the company, Angelakis said. Comcast has decided to spend heavily on advanced set-top boxes. That higher spending doesn’t necessarily bring in new customers since it tends to be marketed as an upgrade to current subscribers.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

In the past year, the stock has ranged from $18.83 to $30.18. The news also pressured other cable stocks: Time Warner Cable Inc. slid 4.4 percent to $25.87 while shares of Cablevision Systems Corp. fell 4.2 percent to $25.76. “We’ve seen a real softness in the business related to a combination of … macroeconomic issues and markets, and you’ve seen some competitive intensity,” Michael Angelakis, Comcast’s co-chief financial officer, said Wednesday at the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference in New York. Cable stocks have struggled in 2007 on worries of stricter regulations, a slowing economy and competition from phone companies as they lured customers with their video services. Cable had enjoyed an advantage of being able to deliver video, Internet and phone services through one provider. “Competition has increased and we’ve got to respond,” Angelakis said. But “the expectation that I have is, over the next couple of years, we will lose some share on the video side.” PHILADELPHIA – In a bad year for cable stocks, Comcast’s fall has been downright ugly. Shares tumbled to a 20-month low Wednesday after the nation’s largest cable operator disclosed that this year’s revenue growth and cash flow will come in lower than expected. Comcast said consumers were balking at increasing their spending in a slowing economy, and phone companies had stepped up competition. Comcast also raised capital spending to push its advanced digital set-top boxes and its digital services. “Comcast’s announcement today is the worst of all possible worlds,” said Craig Moffett, senior analyst at Sanford Bernstein. “The promise of the cable stocks has always been as growth decelerates, so too will capital intensity, and free cash flow will rise.”
