Both showed no signs of a struggle and kept adding runs to the scoreboard, taking South Africa closer to the victory. Both completed their half-centuries in the process.In the 38th over, Jhulan Goswami handed India the first breakthrough as she got hold of Wolvaardt (80). Sune Luus then came to bat but failed as Goswami dismissed her as well. However, the comeback was too late for the Indian side as South Africa easily got over the line in the 41st over.Earlier, Mithali Raj top-scored with a knock of 50 runs as India posted a score of 177/9 in the allotted fifty overs against South Africa.Put in to bat first, India got off to a bad start as the side lost its first two wickets with just 18 runs on the board. Smriti Mandhana (14) and Jemimah Rodrigues (1) both failed to leave a mark and the hosts were put on the backfoot.Punam Raut (10) also failed to stay at the crease for a long time and this brought Mithali and Harmanpreet Kaur to the middle in the 14th over of the innings.Mithali and Harmanpreet put on 62 runs for the fourth wicket and the partnership saw Harmanpreet scoring runs at a brisk pace. When India started to gain an upper hand, Sune Luus dismissed Harmanpreet (40) in the 26th over, reducing India to 102/4.Deepti Sharma then joined Mithali in the middle and both batters started rebuilding the innings for the hosts. The ODI skipper Mithali brought up her 54th ODI fifty in the 38th over of the innings and India was looking to post a target in access of 225.But as soon as Mithali got to her fifty, she was sent back to the pavilion by Shabnim Ismail in the 38th over of the innings and this brought an end to the 52-run stand between Mithali and Deepti. Soon after Deepti (27) was also dismissed and this reduced India to 155/6.The lower-order of India was not able to provide much resistance and as a result, the hosts were able to post just a total of more than the 175-run mark in the allotted fifty overs.Also Read: IPL 2021 Fixtures and Schedule announced: Chennai to host MI vs… Previous articleBoxam International: Indian boxers shine in Spain, bag 10 medals including one goldNext articleIPL 2021 schedule & fixtures: 5 biggest changes that fans will see in IPL this season Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

The disciplinary lottery rolls on and on

first_img There were plenty of international players in the dock this week but maybe the disciplinary process should be in the dock as well.Another week of autumn internationals, another round of citings and yet another round of puzzling decisions by the men in blazers when the disciplinary hearings got underway. And before we get going this is not just a rant against the All Blacks who seem to have attracted most of the ire on social media since their win over Ireland in Dublin last Saturday which was probably the most physical game seen this calendar year.Talking point: Sam Cane’s tackle put Robbie Henshaw out of the gameThere were four players up before the beak this week – England’s Joe Launchbury, Argentina’s Nicolas Sanchez and the New Zealand pair Malakai Fekitoa and Sam Cane. They were charged variously with booting an opponent in the head, striking an opponent and a couple of dangerous tackles and got a variety of punishments, some of which were of the head-scratching variety.Rugby is a hurly-burly game and you can’t expect referees – or  journalists, for that matter – to see everything and there was hardly a mention of the first two incidents in the aftermath of the matches. The first most people knew that Launchbury and Sanchez could be in bother came when the disciplinary emails dropped a couple of days later.But when incidents and the non-sending off of players change the results of games then something needs to be done and if that needs a change in the laws then it needs a change in the laws. Different definitions of a high tackle are being talked about, but that won’t be introduced into the elite game any time soon – maybe they current laws should be refereed properly.In the dock: Joe Launchbury has been suspended for two weeksRugby administrators always have an eye on playing numbers and no-one wants to play a game where you could get decapitated. No mother is going to let her son or daughter get involved in a sport where there is a real danger of getting your block knocked off.And if someone does something that could take an opponent’s head off the lawmakers should throw the book at them and they should have thrown the book at at least one of the four players last weekend.But sometimes it seems they chuck a load of balls in the air and see what numbers come down first when deciding the length of bans. There are guidelines but it often seems these are pretty meaningless and there are too many things to be added and taken away from the entry points when they finally come to the conclusion that most blokes are available to play next week.Head high: Malakai Fekitoa is carded for his high tackle on Simon ZeboLaunchbury was first up and the three-strong disciplinary committee ruled that his kick to the head of Fiji centre Asaeli Tikoirotuma was reckless, but not deliberate, but deserved a red card at the time and gave him a four-week ban. This was reduced to two weeks as Launchbury had held his hands up and pleaded guilty; he was contrite and had a clean record. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Shown the card: Jaco Peyper brandishes a card in Dublin With another raft of citings from the weekend, there is a growing cacophony of commentators getting increasingly confused by the inconsistent disciplinary process…center_img Sanchez, the Argentina fly-half, admitted he had struck a Scotland player, as he was trying to get free from an ‘illegal grasp’ but pleaded that it did not merit a red and was not banned at all.The two New Zealanders, Cane and Fekitoa, had different cases to answer, both involving dangerous tackles that could conceivably have ended in red cards and with no-one getting their marching orders you wonder what World Rugby’s  directive earlier this month was all about.No case to answer: Nicolas Sanchez was exonerated from a striking chargeThe governing body told referees to be strict on tackles, charges or kicks that can cause concussion but what happens if they card a player who is then let off on the Tuesday afterwards? They truly do have the impossible job.World Rugby’s match officials selection committee chairman Anthony Buchanan said: “The laws of the game clearly state that the necks and heads of players are sacrosanct. When it comes to foul play, the game is cleaner now than ever before but referees must constantly be alert to head-high hits.”Cane’s hit on Robbie Henshaw, in the game against Ireland, which knocked the centre out is a tough one to call, even after looking at the video. He doesn’t seem to make a huge effort to wrap his arms around the Irishman, it does look high and Joe Schmidt’s reaction in the coaches’ box is pretty instructional as Ireland only got a penalty out of it.But Steve Hansen, the New Zealand head coach, saw it differently, the All Blacks contested the citing and Cane was not banned – although he was injured and out of the next game New Zealand game anyway. Long ban: Chris Ashton is someone who some feel has been hard done by disciplinary panelsFekitoa was sinbinned for his tackle on Simon Zebo which was does not getter any better the more you look at on the video. Fekitoa, who should have seen red, came back on after his 10 minutes in the cooler and scored his second try of the game. He should have been nowhere near the pitch and was given a week’s ban at his hearing despite saying he didn’t think his tackle deserved a red. As it was he got a two-week ban, reduced to seven days, when mitigating factors and contrition were taken into account.Surmising the game, you can be sure that it was not the greatest day at the office for referee Jaco Peyper and his assistants. Fekitoa’s was a blatant high tackle, you can argue the toss about Cane’s challenge but how Launchbury got four times – originally before it was reduced – the ban the New Zealand centre got is baffling. Just ask Chris Ashton. He could tell you a bit about the lottery of suspensions and how long you are going to get.last_img read more

(Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.com) Oscar Saraviahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/oscar-saravia/ printTCU volleyball opened their season with two consecutive losses to No. 2 Baylor at the Ferrell Center in Waco this weekend. The Frogs were swept in the first game after losing all three sets 25-19, 25-19 and 25-12. “We’re thankful that we’ve been given the opportunity to compete and appreciate all of the effort that so many people have put in to make that happen,” head coach Jill Kramer said. “Although we didn’t get the result we wanted tonight, we get another crack at Baylor tomorrow.”Preseason All-Big 12 Katie Clark and sophomore Afedo Manyang led the Frogs on offense, combining for 20 kills. Setter McKenzie Nichols added 24 assists. Baylor started strong, leading 9-4 early in the first set, and they never looked back, gaining a large enough lead to hold off late momentum by the Frogs to win the set. The second set was a battle, featuring four lead changes and eight ties. TCU showed positive signs with an early 6-4 lead, but Baylor won seven of the last eight points to claim the set. The Bears were dominant in the third and punished the Frogs after a series of mistakes. Setter McKenzie Nichols in action against Baylor during the second game on Saturday.

A division bench of Justice Aravind Kumar and Justice Pradeep Singh Yerur said : “We are of the considered view that interim arrangement deserves to be made by balancing the interest of both parties namely, both set of students, viz., students who have been admitted between 28.07.2020 to 31.07.2020 by member colleges of first petitioner-Foundation and students who are now seeking admission in the fresh Mop-Up round, which has been announced by the respondent-authorities.” The court is hearing a petition filed by Association of Minority Professional Colleges in Karnataka and others challenging the notification of the authorities dated August 15, allowing fresh registration of candidates for counselling to PG medical course which is likely to unsettle the selection already made by the member institutions of the Association. Senior Advocates, D.N.Nanjunda Reddy, Madhusudhan.R.Naik, Shashikiran Shetty, appearing for petitioners, contended that orders passed by Apex court on July 30, do not suggest or indicate to undo the process of admission already done and extension was granted only in cases where counselling process could not be completed. The member colleges of petitioner-Foundation have already made admission under Clause 6(d) of Consensual Agreement, by accommodating unreported students admitted under Mop-Up round of counselling and thereby if Mop-Up round is now allowed to be extended by impugned communications and notification, it would be in gross violation of law affecting the rights of students who have already been admitted. On the other hand, Additional Advocate General Dhyan Chinnappa and Advocate Vikram Huilgol, appearing for the respondents, informed the court that pursuant to the impugned notification, several students have arrived from various parts of the country to participate in the fresh Mop-Up round of counselling notified by KEA. The said exercise is being undertaken by the State by virtue of the order passed by the Hon’ble Apex Court on 30.07.2020 extending the time schedule upto 31.08.2020 and in the event of process of counselling is stayed, it would result in great prejudice being caused to the students and it would not sub-serve the larger interest of students. While allowing interim arrangement the bench clarified :”Such admission card/letter issued by the respondent-authorities would not entitle or empower such students to get themselves admitted to the respective colleges to which they have been granted admission, till these writ petitions are disposed of. We also make it clear that member-colleges of petitioner-Foundation, who have admitted the students as noticed herein above, would also be bound by the order that would be passed by this Court and their admissions which have been made by the respective colleges would be subject to the result of these writ petitions.” The court has also directed the respondents to file their statement of objections to the petitions by August 24 and posted the matter for further hearing on August 25. Case background: The present scenario is on account of the Department of Medical Education extending the last date of admission for Medical and PG Courses upto 31.08.2020. The apex court by its order dated January 18, 2016, clarified that ‘time schedule’ stipulated for admission to Under Graduate-UG and Post Graduate-PG Courses by MCI is to be adhered to namely, approved the time schedule as prescribed in the notification issued by MCI with previous sanction of the Central Government. As per notification February 20, 2018, issued by the Medical Council of India substituting the time schedule to be followed for completing admission process for Post Graduate Courses (Broad Speciality) from 2018-19 batch onwards and notified thereunder that at the end of “Mop-Up” round of Counselling by the Governmental Agency, all those seats which remained unfilled/vacant should be handed over to the respective institutions and Counselling Authority should forward the list of students in order of merit equaling to ten times the number of vacant seats in respect of Medical colleges in the light of Consensual Agreement entered into between Government of Karnataka and first petitioner. Under the notification time schedule fixed for PG admission was 31st May of every academic year. Due to COVID-19 pandemic prevalent in the country, Hon’ble Apex Court extended the last date of admission to 31st July, 2020 for the academic year 2020-21. In Karnataka the process of counselling was commenced and after 2 rounds of counselling and Mop-Up round being concluded on 27.07.2020, time for reporting to get admitted was fixed as 28.07.2020 by 6.00 p.m. The Department of Medical Education by communication dated July 28, addressed to all private medical and dental colleges, directed them to fill “the stray vacancy seats” in respective institutions by 31.07.2020. The names of eligible candidates, their details in the ratio of 1:10 was also shared by the second respondent with the private medical and dental colleges. The petitioner and its member-institutions on receipt of communication dated 28.07.2020, duly notified on the web portal of KEA, about vacant seats and have called for applications from eligible candidates for filling up the same. It is further stated that on 30.07.2020 third respondent also notified on its website the list of vacant and unreported seats after Mop-Up round and upon transfer of the unfilled seats and unreported seats allotted in the Mop-Up round of the counselling along with list of eligible candidates, petitioners are said to have completed the admission between 27.07.2020 to 31.07.2020. However, the States of Bihar and Rajasthan counselling process having not been completed due to COVID-19, applications came to be filed before Hon’ble Apex Court for further extension of time schedule for admission to PG Courses for Academic Year 2020-21 and Apex Court by order dated 30.07.2020 in M.A.No.1282/2020 in W.P.(C) No.76/2015 allowed said application and extended the time for admission from 31.07.2020 to 31.08.2020 and ordered that such extension would enure to the benefit of entire country.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

North Carolina woman’s husband is a person of interest in her death, police re-examining death of first wife

first_imgNash County Sheriff(LEGGETT, N.C.) — A North Carolina husband is a person of interest in the unsolved murder of his most recent wife, Diana Keel, who was an emergency room nurse and mother of two, officials said Thursday.The state’s Department of Transportation employees found the 38-year-old woman’s body on Tuesday near Leggett, North Carolina, about 30 minutes from her home in Nashville, North Carolina, according to the Nash County Sheriff’s Office. Foul play was “definitely” involved, officials said on Wednesday.Authorities believe her body had been there since Saturday — the day Keel was reported missing by her 18-year-old daughter, according to the sheriff’s office. Keel also leaves behind a 10-year-old son.Keel was last seen by her husband, Rexford Lynn Keel, on Friday, the sheriff’s office said.Lynn Keel said he didn’t report his wife missing because she would leave “from time to time” and “stay gone a couple of days,” authorities said Wednesday.Nash County Sheriff Keith Stone told reporters Wednesday night that Lynn Keel remains a person of interest, adding, “There are persons of interest that I don’t want to name at this time.”“Because in any investigation you can have a person of interest and it can change at any time and go in a totally different way,” Stone said. “So were not going to rule out any possibilities at this time.”Attempts by ABC News to reach Lynn Keel on Thursday were unsuccessful.Diana Keel’s employer said she hadn’t been at work in a few days and her car has remained parked at her home, officials said.As investigators dig into Keel’s mysterious death, detectives have also followed-up on the Jan. 1, 2006, death of Keel’s former wife, Elizabeth Edward Keel, the sheriff’s office said Wednesday.Edward Keel fell and hit her forehead on the corner of the concrete steps at the front of the couple’s home, according to the sheriff’s office.Edward Keel’s death was ruled accidental based on blunt trauma to the head, the medical examiner’s office determined at the time, the sheriff’s office said.Lynn Keel was not listed as a suspect in Edward Keel’s death, said Brandon Medina, Chief Deputy of the Nash County Sheriff’s Office.But, in the wake of Keel’s killing, investigators have reviewed in detail Edward Keel’s death report, autopsy report and photographs, “along with the notes from the primary deputy, investigator” and other witnesses, Medina told ABC News via email Thursday.Lynn Keel continued to live in the same house his first wife died in, officials said.
