Ponting says he urged Dravid not to retire

Posted on by

first_imgFormer Australia skipper Ricky Ponting claims that he persuaded Rahul Dravid against retiring when he was written off after a string of low scores last year and the in- form Indian batsman has reciprocated the support by inspiring him during his lean patch.Dravid, the lone Indian batsman to perform well in with three centuries and 461 runs in the team’s recent 0- 4 Test whitewash at the hands of England, was woefully out of form last year and Ponting said he encouraged the veteran right-hander carry on despite the criticism.”I remember after our last series in India there was a lot of talk and speculation about Dravid being finished,” Ponting told a cricket website.”I actually went and found him at the end of the series and said ‘don’t you even think about retiring’ because I just saw some stuff in a few of his innings that suggested he was still a very, very good player.”I just said ‘don’t let them wear you down, don’t let them get you down’. I received a similar text message before and after the Ashes from him as well,” he added.The 36-year-old Ponting has not scored a Test century since January last year but he is confident of regaining his touch and he is looking up to Dravid for inspiration.”There are a few ( who provide an inspiration for batsmen of advancing years).Sachin (Tendulkar) and (Jacques) Kallis both had a great last year; Dravid is doing well now. It’s not only good for guys of my age to see guys doing that, it’s good for the younger blokes to see it as well; to know that if you keep doing the right things and work hard, and if you’ve got talent, then age is not a barrier in our game,” he said.advertisementSpeaking about the state of the game in general, Ponting said he is worried about the impact of Twenty20 on youngsters.”The big worry I’ve had about Twenty20 cricket and even other shorter forms of the game being played at really developmental times in kids’ careers is that it won’t teach them the art of concentration.”Cricket for me when I was growing up meant batting until someone got me out, and if that took them a week then that’s how long it took them,” he said.”Now, even Under-17s and Under-19s are playing T20 games in national championships, and at the detriment of two- day games. Good state players these days are averaging 35; if you were averaging 35 when I was playing your dad would go and buy you a basketball or a footy and tell you to play that. So there are areas of concern there; I don’t know how you change them,” he explained.Asked about India’s slide from the top of ICC rankings after the debacle in England, Ponting said it would be interesting to see how Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men do once the veterans retire.”India still haven’t reached that point that I thought they’d get to yet. They’ve still got that crux, those great batters in that side. Time will tell with India now. Dravid was probably one who was in the gun before the rest of them and he’s found a way to come through,” he said.”They (Tendulkar, Dravid and VVS Laxman) are all about the same age and they won’t go on forever. They will be tested more than anything with their bowlers.”- With inputs from PTIlast_img read more

first_imgWolves captain Conor Coady: We must build on Besiktas Europa League winby Paul Vegas21 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveWolves captain Conor Coady says they must make the most of their Europa League win at Besiktas.Coady says Wolves must build on the famous win and try to go as far as possible in the Europa League.He said: “I was saying to (sporting director) Kevin Thelwell in the changing room; the distance that this club has come in the last few years is amazing.“To beat Besiktas 1-0 in the Europa League (a team) who are usually in the Champions League is what dreams are made of.“But we need to use this as a springboard to set us forward because we do not just want to be a number in this competition, we want to try and go as far as possible.”But honest skipper Coady believes improvements can still be made.He said: “I think it is always important coming to a place like this that you do stay organised and solid, now we have done that I think it gives us a base for big Willy (Boly) to keep his cool in the box and put the ball in the back of the net!“It was a good night but a lot of improvement to do.“We can play better. We did not keep the ball as well as we should have or create as much as we could have. The feeling at the end to win a game like that was brilliant.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Real Madrids preseason struggles continue with loss to Tottenham

Posted on by

first_imgMunich: Real Madrid’s disastrous pre-season continued as they lost 1-0 to Tottenham in Munich. “Our defeat was well deserved,” Real midfielder Tony Kroos told German TV after the match on Tuesday. It’s true that we’re not quite in good shape.” In the second match of the evening, Bayern Munich thrashed Fenerbahce 6-1. Champions League runners up Tottenham will play Bayern in Wednesday’s final. Real will have a chance to find winning form run against a Turkish side that finished their game against the host in disarray. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhFor Spurs, Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game with a deft finish after pouncing on a disastrous pass by Marcello, who was trying to prevent a throw in, after 22 minutes. Humiliated 7-3 last week by Atletico Madrid, Real could thank goalkeeper Keylor Navas, starting in place of injured Thibaut Courtois, for preventing a heavier against an enterprising and more aggressive Spurs team. Madrid survived some goalmouth scares in the first half. After the break, Dele Alli went close twice and 17-year-old Troy Parrott hit the inside of the post. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterZinedine Zidane’s team have conceded 13 goals and lost three of their four warm-up games. “We started off very badly, the opponent took advantage of our mistakes,” said Kroos. With Gareth Bale, the source of turmoil in recent weeks, left out of the squad for the trip to Munich and James Rodriguez yet to start after returning from Bayern, Real rarely threatened. Star summer recruit Eden Hazard was invisible. Both teams will be in action again tomorrow. Tottenham play the winner of the Tuesday’s second match, between Bayern and Fenerbahce. Real will have the opportunity to make amends tomorrow against the loser. Zidane’s men then travel to Austria to face Salzburg on August 6, then to Italy for a match against AS Rome, the last friendly before the starting the Spanish league away to Celta Vigo on August 17. In the late game, Bayern scored five in the first half with two goals from Thomas Muller and one each from Renato Sanches, Leon Goretzka and Kingsley Coman. “We played well from the beginning,” said Mueller who completed his hat-trick in the second half. “Fenerbahce made mistakes with our pressing. When you come into the dressing room at half-time five goals ahead, you necessarily feel good.” Fenerbahce’s German international attacker Max Kruse scored a late consolation goal.last_img read more

Opinion One and done rule bad for college basketball programs fans

Posted on by

Kansas Freshman guard Andrew Wiggins dunks the ball during a game against Eastern Kentucky March 21 at the Scottrade Center. Kansas won, 80-69.Courtesy of MCTIt’s almost that time of year again, to say so long to college basketball season until next year … but wait, there’s a few things you won’t exactly be seeing next year. You won’t be seeing some of the country’s top players return for another season.Many, allowed by the “one and done” NBA draft rule, will enter their names into the 2014 NBA Draft. Players like forward Aaron Gordon of Arizona, guard Andrew Wiggins of Kansas, and forward Jabari Parker of Duke are likely to take their opportunity to abandon the arenas filled with young, hopeful-hearted and spirited university fans to strive toward a game where their wins and successes are no longer a form of mere satisfaction with praise from loyal fans but come in the form of dollar signs and endorsement deals.This rule requiring players to only attend school one year before entering the draft not only lets down fans, but also allows young athletes into the big leagues a few years before their time.While there are many requirements for a player to be eligible for the NBA draft, the specific rule being debated here is this “one and done” rule, implemented in 2006. This rule states that any basketball player — at least 19 years old — is eligible for the draft if he has allowed one year to lapse since his high school graduation. This was set forth to encourage high school basketball stars to not follow in the steps of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett and skip straight to the pros.Many NBA spokesmen have argued against these criteria. Those men only look at the game from a business standpoint and how that rule poses a threat of lost income to them, as the influx of young talent could help boost ticket and apparel sales by helping their teams improve. However, many others feel that requiring players to attend school for at least one year is not nearly enough.Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, suggested that players ought to stay in school for at least three years.I’m going to have to go with Cuban on this one.Speaking from a fan’s perspective, having players leave their beloved sports team after one year is not only upsetting but a let down. It completely discredits the phrase “we’ll get ‘em next year.” Not only will the team not ‘get ‘em next year’ when some of the best players leave and the team has to start back at square one every year to build team chemistry. Fans fall in love with these players. Children develop role models out of these athletes, but are broken-hearted when they can no longer sport the jersey of their favorite player because the player has moved on to bigger and better things.Speaking from a human-interest perspective, one year does not allow these athletes time to fully equip themselves for the real world. With having only one year of college under their belt, this won’t give these players anything to fall back on pending a career-ending injury. College is a self-exploration time that gives adolescents the freedom and time to truly discover who they are and learn life skills. These players won’t develop these characteristics when they skip ahead four years.Call me crazy or an NBA-hater, but imagine what the college ball game would look like if players were required to stay at least three or four years. There would no longer be fear that the best players would not return. These players would have more time to develop their skills, build team chemistry that would lead them to a possible national championship and would establish a stronger and supportive fan base. Not only would these players become better athletically but would be better prepared to handle the professional league and professional world.While Kansas is not as lucky, with many freshmen entering the draft, Ohio State fans are much more fortunate only losing one, likely two, players that stayed for more than one year, sophomore guard Amedeo Della Valle and junior forward LaQuinton Ross. So while we are saddened to see Ross likely forgo his senior year eligibility, thanks for sticking with the Buckeyes for three years. An even bigger appreciation goes out to Aaron Craft for leading the Buckeyes for four solid years and for truly modeling, in my opinion, what college basketball should look like. read more
