Women’s Team To Unleash Youth

first_imgSix players will debut at the Open level in the series for the Australian Women’s Open side, with five players having competed in last year’s Youth Trans Tasman Series, as well as Leah Percy who becomes the first Victorian player to represent Australia in an Open’s division. Bell returns to coach the team, having won three World Cup titles with the Australian Women’s Open side in 1995, 1999 and 2003 and more recently coaching the 18’s Girls and 20’s Girls in the 2009 and 2011 Youth Trans Tasman Series’ respectively. Bell says that he is looking forward to the opportunity to again coach the team, saying he is a different coach to what he was eight years ago. “I’ve learnt a lot having our Youth teams for the last half a dozen years, I’ve managed to stay up with it I believe and the girls have given me good feedback, they are very both supportive and receptive to having me as their coach, that has made me feel comfortable,” Bell said. “I’m really looking forward to it.”2011 Australian 20’s Girls players, Marikki Watego and Bianca Mounsey  and 18’s Girls representatives, Jenna Hitch, Ashleigh Quinlan and Charlotte Caslick have all been selected  for the first time in the Women’s Open side for the 2012 Trans Tasman Series, which starts on Thursday in Mudgee. Eight members of the team are 21 years of age or under, with the signs looking promising for the future of the Australian Women’s Open team. “I don’t think we’ve ever had half the Australian team turnover from one tournament to another so it’s exciting that we’ve got a lot of young girls coming through and we’re having to blood a lot of new people but I think the positive side of it is that we’re doing it so early in the cycle.”Several players that Bell coached in his last stint as coach will again line up for Australia in the series, including Louise Winchester, Kristy Judd and Kelly Woods. Bell says that having these players still in the team as well as numerous players that he’s coached at a Youth level over the past couple of years is of great benefit to himself and the team in general. “It’s good because from a coach’s perspective you’ve always got to have some people who are familiar with you at least. The ones that I’ve coached with the Women’s last time around, Kristy Judd is the perfect example, I just think it’s fascinating just to have someone I started with. I brought her into the Australian team as an 18-year-old and she was with me at my first World Cup in 1995 and now I come back into the vogue and she’s still there. Having her there is just a really good feeling for me because I’ve always admired her as a person and as a player and having her there gives me that extra little bit of security so it’s really good.”Judd will again line up for the Australian Women’s Open team, 17 years after her debut for Australia at the 1995 World Cup in Hawaii. Ironically, the youngest player in the side, Charlotte Caslick, was born in 1995, showing the diversity in the Women’s Open team. Bell has had plenty of experience coaching both girls at different levels and they will be roommates in Mudgee, something that both girls are looking forward to. “Kristy was there in 1995 with me at the first one and Charlotte I’ve coached at both school level and youth level, she’s in my regional and my club side and I can remember her playing as an 11 or 12- year-old and coaching her. Now she’s actually debuting for Australia with the very first player I remember getting into the team as an 18-year-old so it’s really quite an interesting story.”“Charlotte is a lovely girl as well and I’m sure her and Kristy will get along famously. I’m sure Charlotte will just be thrilled to be rooming with the icon of Women’s touch.”A familiar face will join Bell and the team throughout the series, with former Australian Women’s Open representative, Shelley Matcham the manager of the team. Bell says Matcham, who played 38 caps for Australia between 2001 and 2009, will be of great benefit to the team as a manager and mentor. “I got Hound (Matcham) on board at the Alliance in the Elite Eight and I found not only her ability as a past player but the fact that as a mentor and a person that the girls can go to talk, learn off and get advice…and someone within our structure to motivate and just be a good role model for the younger players. I think she’ll just be awesome.”“All the older players who have played with her have said ‘it’s great to have Hound there’ because they know what she brings to a team even when she’s not playing. What she brings to a team is that real lift of intensity and enthusiasm and she’s the sort of player who says ‘it’s no one’s right to play for Australia, you have to earn it’, she’s very passionate.”Despite the number of new players in the team Bell says that the contingent has bonded very well and they can’t wait to take on the Kiwis from Thursday. “At the camp everyone was really excited and really had a good camp and you normally would think with some of the older players, they’ve lost half their team they’d all be in the doldrums but I’m sure all the incumbents are really pleased to have these really good young girls come in and take the places of other people because I’m sure they are also confident of what they’ve seen of them.”“Everyone is just thrilled to be a part of it, there’s a really good feeling in the Women’s team. I think it’s really got a good balance across the team.”“I just want to get it started and looking forward to seeing these girls hopefully reach their potential.” The Australian Women’s Open team starts its campaign against New Zealand at 7.35pm on Thursday at the Glen Willow Regional Sporting Complex in Mudgee, New South Wales. There are plenty of ways to keep in touch with the 2012 Trans Tasman Series, which will be held at Mudgee’s Glen Willow Regional Sporting Complex from Thursday, 26 April to Saturday, 28 April 2012, including in the following ways:Websites:www.austouch.com.auwww.transtasman.mytouchfooty.com Facebook – www.facebook.com/touchfootballaustraliaTwitter – www.twitter.com/touchfootyaus (be sure to use the hashtag #transtasman2012 in your tweets)YouTube – www.youtube.com/touchfootballauslast_img read more

Why Man City are missing out on big targets like De Jong

first_imgManchester City’s team would look very different now if they had got all of their priority transfers over the line: Alexis Sanchez on the left, Jorginho in midfield and Dani Alves at right-back.You could argue that City have dodged a few bullets there, although that does not account for the possibility that they would be performing much better for Pep Guardiola, who is getting the best out of the vast majority of his squad.It also misses the point slightly, as these are players that City wanted to sign, and were very close to doing so. 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? No club signs all of their targets but Frenkie De Jong can now be added to the list of near misses, after he eventually spurned the overtures of City (and PSG) to join Barcelona.Guardiola was asked about De Jong recently and while he was at pains to point out that he was not talking specifically about the 21-year-old, he said his club need to be smarter when it comes to fending off rival interest from the biggest clubs in world football.”Normally, when you are involved with Real Madrid and Barcelona, you are going to lose; no chance,” he conceded. “You have to be quicker and more efficient.”That has been City’s approach and it was no different with De Jong; at the end of 2018 Barca sources were pessimistic on their chances of concluding a deal because the Premier League champions had put in so much groundwork, and were willing to pay Ajax’s transfer fee and De Jong’s wage demands.There were a few twists and turns along the way but Barca eventually won out not just because De Jong wants to play with Lionel Messi at Camp Nou, but because Barca agreed to pay well above Ajax’s asking price, as well as wages of around £270,000 per week, including bonuses.Pep quoteIn the end, it was good old-fashioned financial muscle that proved decisive and it has left some City fans and plenty of outsiders wondering if the wealthy champions could have splashed more of the cash that they obviously have.City’s transfer approach is broadly this: they try to reach agreements with the players as soon as possible, and use their desire to play for Guardiola as leverage against the selling club. It is about City’s idea of value.This has worked well in many cases. Bernardo Silva, Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Riyad Mahrez, among others, were signed this way. City have paid upwards of £50m for those players but they have regarded them all as good value. The approach does not always work out, though, and it has led to some high-profile misses in the past two years. There is a lot of risk involved.For example, they were unlucky with Jorginho because they had struck agreement with both the midfielder and Napoli, only for the Italian club to flat-out refuse to sell to City, so they could get a higher fee – and compensation for Maurizio Sarri – from Chelsea.That was an unforeseen turn of events but it could be argued that had City met Napoli’s demands much earlier instead of haggling they would have eliminated the possibility of Chelsea making their move.City held out for what they saw as a fair price and that is what they did for Alexis Sanchez a year earlier.They were always confident that the Chilean would sign for them that summer; despite interest from PSG and Bayern Munich, he had his heart set on playing for Guardiola.Arsenal did not want to sell to a domestic rival but City’s approach left them with no choice. On transfer deadline day, Arsenal finally agreed to a £60m sale and Alexis even signed a City contract, but the deal fell through because the Gunners did not have time to find a replacement.Each club pointed the finger at the other but City took the risk in running down the clock in a bid to force Arsenal not only into selling to an English club, but for the kind of figure City wanted to pay. Had they made their move sooner, they may have got their man.Pep quoteThen there was Dani Alves’ remarkable 11th hour U-turn which left Guardiola and City furious.It is hard to criticise the club too much for missing out on the Brazilian, given he had met Guardiola, agreed personal terms and engineered a cut-price exit from Juventus on the sole basis that he wanted to work with the Catalan again.He eventually joined PSG because his wife wanted to live in Paris, but again there are ways City could have been “quicker and more efficient” – for one thing, they let him go on holiday to Brazil before putting pen to paper. Could they not have eliminated any room for PSG’s overtures by acting quicker?The other side to this is that City want their prospective new players to be 100 per cent committed to playing for City and Guardiola, but if City expect loyalty from their transfer targets, could they not show a bit back when it comes to the crunch?Their approach is a two-way street and if a player has given them his word, could City not go above their valuation of that player if the selling club holds out for a few extra million?Not in all cases, of course; Jorginho could have been signed earlier for not much more than the eventual agreement, but City showed the merits of their approach by refusing to pay £90m for Mahrez a year ago and then signing him for £60m in the summer instead.And while they certainly could just pay up, given their resources, that hardly promotes the kind of responsible spending that so many rival clubs demand of them. More importantly, it would do nothing to change the perception that they can be taken for a ride by clubs and agents.City are still big spenders but by refusing to pay over the odds for players, they are trying to show the world that they will not be held to ransom. As Guardiola recently said, “A month ago, I started reading ‘Ruben Neves, £100m.’ That is not going to happen. We are not going to pay £100m for a holding midfielder.”That is an admirable and sensible business stance, and it has often been successful.But while other clubs remain willing to dig deep into their pockets for top players, it does mean City will continue to miss out on important targets. Barca’s push for De Jong is further proof of that.last_img read more

Raiola’s worldwide ban delayed due to appeal

first_imgFootball agent Mino Raiola’s worldwide ban has been temporarily stayed until the outcome of the “urgent” appeal lodged on Wednesday, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has confirmed.Raiola, who represents the likes of Paul Pogba, Matthijs de Ligt and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, was given a three-month suspension by the Italian Football Association (FIGC) in May, although it did not provide any specific reasoning.FIFA then moved to extend the suspension to a global scale shortly after, but CAS has confirmed the agent has lodged an appeal and the worldwide ban has been subsequently put on hold until a final decision is reached next month.

The ban imposed by the FIGC is not impacted, however.A CAS statement read: “The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has registered an urgent appeal filed by the football intermediary, Carmine ‘Mino’ Raiola, against the decision taken by the FIFA Appeal Committee on May 28, 2019 (the challenged decision) which confirmed a previous decision of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee.”In such decision, a three-month period of suspension from performing the role of sports agent in Italy which was imposed on Mino Raiola by the Intermediaries Committee of the Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio (FIGC) was extended by FIFA to become a worldwide ban.”Prior to the filing of his appeal, Mino Raiola also filed an urgent application to stay the execution of the challenged decision.”On June 7, 2019, the president of the CAS Appeals Arbitration Division upheld the application. Accordingly, the worldwide extension of the suspension of Mino Raiola is stayed pending the outcome of the CAS proceedings.”However, the suspension imposed by the FIGC in Italy is not affected by the CAS decision.”Further to the parties’ agreement, CAS will conduct an expedited procedure with a shortened procedural calendar in order to allow for a final decision to be rendered at the beginning of July 2019.”Raiola’s client de Ligt figures to be one of the big transfers of the summer, as the Ajax star has been linked with Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool and Manchester United after leading the Dutch side to the Champions League semi-final.Pogba, too, has been linked with a move to Real Madrid following an up-and-down campaign with Manchester United.last_img read more

Rodri tells Atletico Madrid he wants to join Man City

first_imgAtletico Madrid midfielder Rodri has decided to leave the Spanish club and join Manchester City.Rodri, 22, emerged as City’s first choice midfield target long before the end of the 2018-19 season, with the English side even reaching a preliminary agreement over personal terms, putting them in a position to pay his €70 million (£63m/$78m) buy-out clause at the end of the campaign.However, concerted attempts from Atletico to renew his contract and raise that buy-out clause threatened to scupper the transfer, with sources close to the player informing Goal that he was seriously considering committing his future to the Madrid club.

But Rodri recently decided that he will in fact leave this summer, and he informed Atleti of his choice on Monday. It is believed his preferred option is to play for Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium and he has conveyed that message to the club.City sources are insistant, after several transfer near-misses, that the deal is not yet done, but the Blues are considered major favourites to get it over the line. All that is left is to deposit the amount of Rodri’s release clause to the Spanish league and conclude talks regarding personal terms. Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain also showed varying levels of interest in the player while he deliberated over his future in recent weeks, and sources in Germany suggest Bayern are still keen to sign the midfielder. The German club’s sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, met Rodri’s agent, Pablo Barquero, in Madrid in May.Mats Hummels’ expected departure for Borussia Dortmund could require Javi Martinez to move to centre-back, opening up a gap in midfield for Rodri to fill.But Rodri has told Atletico and City that he wants to move to the Premier League champions and barring a major 11th-hour u-turn, the deal is expected to be completed in the coming days.Sources indicate the midfielder would earn a basic salary in excess of £100,000 per week, plus performance-related bonuses, should he conclude his move to Manchester.Additional reporting by Kerry Haulast_img read more

‘Arsenal must be realistic’ – Emery gives up on title race

first_imgUnai Emery says Arsenal need to be realistic and admit that there is a big difference between their side and the two that dominated the Premier League last season. Arsenal finished fifth in the English top-flight last term, one point behind fourth-place Tottenham as the Gunners fell short of a Champions League spot. They also fell short against the Chelsea in the Europa League final, as the Blues topped their London rivals 4-1 in Baku to doom the club to another Europa League campaign.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks 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? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Arsenal’s next goal will be to push back into one of those top four spots, not to challenge the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City atop the league. And Emery says that is because there is still a massive gap between his side and the league’s top two, one that will take time for the club to close. “We need to be realistic and the distance between Liverpool and Manchester City and us is [a lot of] points,” Emery said. “We want to reduce that, we want to be more competitive. We need to improve defensively but with no loss offensively, because the first idea we developed with this team is to be offensive. “Sometimes it’s true that we struggled defensively, and to take the balance. Sometimes we took this balance last year. Our challenge is to keep producing that. And with other teams we know, we are realistic. At the moment Manchester City and Liverpool they are very strong, but we want to do our way. “To be in the top four is the same difficulty because Tottenham is growing up, Chelsea also kept their players [other than selling Eden Hazard] and can keep the performance. Manchester United were behind us last year but they have a lot of potential as a team. “We need to believe in our way, we need to believe in our process, believe in our players. We have very good players, very good young players. We want to sign two or three players to help us and to do our way.” Unai Emery 2019Emery enters his second year in charge of the Gunners, having taken over for Arsene Wenger ahead of the 2018-19 campaign. And the former Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla coach says that he expects progress this year as the club continues to adjust to him as he adjusts to life in the Premier League. “I think we progressed, it’s not enough for our first target but it’s our way,” Emery said. “I think some players’ development was clear and I want to continue this year. Our target generally is going to be if we can take some titles, and, overall, our first objective is to get to the Champions League. But we need that process and we are doing that process. “We need to reduce the difference with Chelsea and Tottenham. We must remember it is only two and one point behind them [respectively]. “It is not enough. I know it is not enough, but we can be positive to do one step more in our way to achieve and to compete with them and to fight for the top four in the Premier League.”  Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Liverpool & Man City the real title contenders – Lloris

first_imgLiverpool and Manchester City are the ‘real contenders’ for the Premier League title this season, says Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, despite his side holding the latter to a draw.Spurs earned a point against Pep Guardiola’s champions at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday after they came from behind twice through Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura to snare a 2-2 result.City had a late strike ruled out by VAR for handball in contentious circumstances to leave just Liverpool and Arsenal with 100 per cent records in the Premier League after the opening two games.

Tottenham enjoyed one of their strongest seasons in years under Mauricio Pochettino last campaign, securing another top-four finish and reaching a first Champions League final.However, they ultimately faded in their domestic pursuits and were outclassed for the European crown by Liverpool in Madrid.Speaking after Spurs’ impressive point against City at the weekend, France international Lloris stated that his side are aware they are the third runner behind a two-horse race for the title, and that his team need to improve their consistency in avoiding soft defeats.“One thing that we try to improve this season: if you cannot win, it’s important to not lose the game, especially against an opponent like Manchester City,” the keeper said in the Evening Standard following his side’s efforts on Saturday.“If you want to stay in contact with the best team in the Premier League, it’s important to get this feeling. There were some games that we lost [last term] that we should have drawn. We all know the difficulty of playing at City, so it’s a good feeling to build confidence.“With humility, Liverpool and City are the real contenders. We’re going to try our best to challenge for top spot, but it’s difficult to find the consistency. “We just need to try to use the experience of the last few years in the best way and it’s about details — to not lose a game, especially a game you do not deserve to win. You draw, you take a point and it’s very good because your rivals share the point with you. “Now it’s just to keep the consistency.

The computer model gives the Buckeyes a 95.5 percent chance to win this Saturday’s game.The two teams have met only six times, but the Buckeyes have crushed the Cornhuskers in their last three meetings. Ohio State has outscored Nebraska a whopping 181-55 in those three games.The game will be played on Saturday at 12 p.m. EST on FOX.last_img read more

Greg Schiano Addresses His Future At Ohio State

But anytime there’s a coaching change … a head coach has to select the staff that he feels gives the team the best chance to win,” Schiano said.Day has not yet indicated one way or another if Schiano’s job is on the line.OSU DC Greg Schiano said he’d like to return, but will respect Ryan Day’s process to fill his staff. “I love being here. My family loves being here. But anytime there’s a coaching change … a head coach has to select the staff that he feels gives the team the best chance to win”— Edward Aschoff (@AschoffESPN) December 27, 2018Schiano’s claim to fame was his 11-year stint as head coach of Rutgers, during which he turned the New Jersey-based college into a top program in the northeast.He left Rutgers in 2012 to coach the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but was fired after two straight losing seasons.Schiano was out of football for several years until Meyer added him to his staff as defensive coordinator and associate head coach in 2016.Even though Schiano has more head coaching experience, Day proved himself adept at coaching the Buckeyes during the first three games of the season when Meyer was suspended.If Schiano does get the ax when Day takes over, he will likely be a top coaching target either in the college ranks, or even for an NFL job.last_img read more

Mid-round pick who should have a long NFL career,” he said.The Senior Bowl is set to take place this Saturday. The game is set to kick off at 2:30 p.m. E.T. and will be televised on the NFL Network.last_img read more

Brent Musburger Announces His College Football Playoff Picks

first_imgBrent Musburger calls a college basketball game.LAS VEGAS, NV – FEBRUARY 19: Sportscaster Brent Musburger appears before a game between the New Mexico Lobos and the UNLV Rebels at the Thomas & Mack Center on February 19, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. New Mexico won 68-56. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)Legendary broadcaster Brent Musburger may not be on the national airwaves anymore, but he remains very involved in the sports world. Based in Las Vegas, he helps create content for VSiN, the Vegas Stats & Information Network, and does broadcast work for the soon-to-be Las Vegas Raiders.Today, Musburger put out his College Football Playoff foursome. He didn’t go with a super conventional group, either.Alabama and Clemson remain involved. They’re by far the heaviest favorites to make the field, and for good reason.His final two selections are a bit more interesting. Musburger has Michigan, the Big Ten favorite, making the field for the first time, and Washington for the second time, getting the Pac-12 back in the mix for the first time in a few years. From VSiN, via the New York Post:Who will join the Big Two is a bigger puzzle. Leading candidates include Ohio State and Michigan of the Big Ten, Oklahoma and Texas of the Big 12, Oregon and Washington of the Pac-12, Georgia and Florida of the SEC and independent Notre Dame.I’m predicting Michigan and Washington will join Clemson and Alabama.Admittedly, Michigan is a risky choice. Part of my reasoning focuses on the committee, which has snubbed the Big Ten conference the past two years. That’s bad business. The Big Ten produces huge TV ratings, and that means more money for the colleges in the next contract. Barring a performance meltdown, I cannot see the conference being snubbed a third straight season.Brent Musburger admits that Ohio State is the “easier” Big Ten pick given their talent and pedigree, but says that he favors Michigan thanks to experience, home field advantage this November, and questions about the Buckeyes’ new head coach Ryan Day and quarterback Justin Fields.Similarly, he gives Washington an edge over Oregon thanks to that game taking place in Seattle, and a more manageable schedule in the non-conference.As for his national championship, he likes things flipping back from orange to crimson:So who wins the championship? Roll Tide! Alabama avenges last year’s debacle. Nick Saban wins his sixth national championship, and quarterback Tua Tagovailoa also hoists the Heisman. As usual, it’s a good time to be in Tuscaloosa.That might not be the biggest ledge to go out on, but at least he keeps the tradition of a new team making the field every year, and gets the Pac-12 back involved to keep things interesting.[New York Post],So who wins the championship? Roll Tide! Alabama avenges last year’s debacle. Nick Saban wins his sixth national championship, and quarterback Tua Tagovailoa also hoists the Heisman. As usual, it’s a good time to be in Tuscaloosa.last_img read more

Miami Open: Hubert Hurkacz stuns Dominic Thiem, Novak Djokovic breezes through

first_img Reuters MiamiMarch 23, 2019UPDATED: March 23, 2019 12:23 IST Dominic Thiem’s bid for a ‘Sunshine Slam’ ended as he crashed out of the Miami Open (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSHubert Hurkacz shocked Dominic Thiem 6-4 6-4Novak Djokovic beat Australian Tomic 7-6(2) 6-2Kei Nishikori lost to Dusan Lajovic 2-6 6-2 6-3Indian Wells champion Dominic Thiem’s bid for a ‘Sunshine Slam’ met with a quick end as he fell 6-4 6-4 to Hubert Hurkacz in the Miami Open second round on Friday, while world number one Novak Djokovic wasted little time in dispatching Bernard Tomic.The 22-year-old Hurkacz broke third seed Thiem four times, including in the final games of each set, to record the biggest win of his career.Austrian Thiem, who beat Roger Federer on Sunday to win his first career Masters 1000 title at the BNP Paribas Open, was uncharacteristically sloppy on the Grandstand court.Kei Nishikori was also sent packing from the second round after Serbian Dusan Lajovic stunned the Japanese world number six 2-6 6-2 6-3.The fifth seed had a first-round bye and appeared headed for a routine victory until Lajovic, who was misfiring in the early stages of the match, suddenly stepped up his game.”He definitely raised his level (in the) second and third sets. He wasn’t missing much like in the first set. He served well in the end,” said Nishikori.”Maybe I didn’t play quite my best today. Credit to him today.”Nishikori, playing in his first match since falling in the third round at Indian Wells last week, had his serve broken five times during the match.”I’m trying to keep my head up,” said Nishikori. “Claycourt season is coming. It’s a completely new season. I’ll try to have good practice, two more weeks, and be ready for Monte Carlo.”Next up for world number 44 Lajovic, who had lost in the first round of five tour-level events this season, will be a clash with Nick Kyrgios after the Australian defeated qualifier Alexander Bublik of Kazakhstan 7-5 6-3.advertisement Djokovic needed just over an hour to brush aside Australian Tomic 7-6(2) 6-2 and advance to the third round of a tournament he has won six times. The Serb improved his record to 6-0 against Tomic.In other men’s matches, seventh seed John Isner beat Italian Lorenzo Sonego, 11th seed Borna Coric beat Roberto Carballes Baena, Briton Kyle Edmund beat Belarusian Ilya Ivashka, Gilles Simon lost to French compatriot Jeremy Chardy and Nikoloz Basilashvili of Georgia beat German Mischa Zverev.Canadian Milos Raonic, the 12th seed, also advanced when Germany’s Maximillian Marterer withdrew due to knee pain while 16th seed Gael Monfils pulled out of the tournament with an injury.Also Read | French Open prize money raised by 8 per cent, new court inauguratedFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

It was his partnership with MS Dhoni which kept India alive in the chase after they collapsed to 92 for 6 in the 31st over.The pair added 116 runs for the seventh wicket before Jadeja’s dismissal in the 48th over. Dhoni departed soon after, run out on 50 which was the final nail in the coffin for India.Is there a better celebration in world cricket?#CWC19 | #INDvNZ | #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/KKuOJLg321Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) July 10, 2019Former captain Sachin Tendulkar lauded Jadeja for his special knock and also praised Dhoni for being the guiding force behind that seventh-wicket partnership which almost won the game for India in Manchester.”He was brilliant. This morning when he got Ross Taylor run out with that direct throw, we in the commentary box were discussing that it could be his day. The way he took initiative in that partnership (with Dhoni), he caught New Zealand by surprise, caught them off guard.”There were number of clean shots by him, which were from a batsman who was out there to do something and prove something. I would give him 10 on 10 today.advertisement”At this world stage who wouldn’t want to go out and perform well. You could see that determination and that hunger to do something was special and very much there. It was amazing to watch both of them, the way they ran between the wickets. That understanding was very much there because they play together in the IPL as well,” Tendulkar told India Today.The Old Trafford crowd applauds a magnificent half-century #INDvNZ | #CWC19 | #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/T4ucoN2oYcCricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) July 10, 2019″The sound that his bat was making was something different. You could hear that. With Dhoni’s guidance and experience he created that impact but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to finish the game. But in a convincing manner that Jadeja took charge, he was the aggressor today. He was hitting those big shots and rightly so.Captain @imVkohli all praise for @imjadeja post his semi-final show #TeamIndia #CWC19 #INDvNZ pic.twitter.com/egJJkzwZ0IBCCI (@BCCI) July 10, 2019″I felt that really worked well. One person was an aggressor and the other one was an experience campaigner. I felt MS (Dhoni) was going to attack in the last 3 overs. Because it also became important for someone to be there till the end. But possibly the boundaries could have come a bit earlier.
