New Delhi : It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Sri Lanka has been the unlukiest team in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 with two of their four games being washed out due to heavy rain. Sri Lanka started off their World Cup campaign with an obnoxious outing, suffering a 10-wicket loss against the current table toppers New Zealand. However, they came back strongly against Afghanistan to open their account in this mega event. With one win, one loss and two no results, Sri Lanka will be up against the five-time champions Australia at the Oval in London on Saturday. Australia, led-by Aaron Finch are currently placed at number two position in points table and have won three out of four games in the competition so far. With this, News Nation brings to you as what could be the best fantasy 11 for this all-important encounter.

Bulgaria’s Pulev, whose only defeat in 29 fights came against Wladimir Klitschko, beat Hughie Fury to earn his position as IBF mandatory challenger and, last weekend, he outpointed Rydell Booker.The IBF told Sky Sports earlier this year about the race between Pulev and WBO mandatory challenger Usyk: “Ours has to come first. The organisations have agreed that the IBF mandatory would be next.”Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn first explained in August that the winner of the rematch against Ruiz Jr would have two mandatory challengers to immediately contend with.“We’re going to have a problem where Usyk and Pulev both say: ‘you’ve got to fight me next’,” Hearn told Sky Sports.That could lead to the possibility of a belt being vacated by the winner of Ruiz Jr versus Joshua.“Some belt could become vacant,” Hearn said. “Because the IBF and the WBO are both going to order their mandatories after Joshua-Ruiz Jr. Unless a deal can be done with someone, you’ve either got to do that, or vacate.“But the Joshua-Ruiz fight is so big, it’s almost bigger than the belts.”Usyk, the former undisputed cruiserweight champion, won his heavyweight debut against Chazz Witherspoon last month and immediately said “I am ready” to challenge the champion of his new division.He had previously made clear that his dream fight would be against Joshua at Wembley Stadium, saying: “If you want to be the best, you have to fight the best.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram The winner of Anthony Joshua’s rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr could be mandated to fight Kubrat Pulev next, instead of Oleksandr Usyk.Pulev (IBF) and Usyk (WBO) are the mandatory challengers for the titles that are stake between Joshua and Ruiz Jr on December 7, and are racing to be the next opponent for whoever emerges with the belts.“Kubrat Pulev’s next fight will be for the IBF world heavyweight title,” his promoters Top Rank told Sky Sports. “If the Joshua-Ruiz winner decides not to fight Pulev, his next fight will be for the vacant IBF title.”
RAY PFEIFFER/Herald PhotoThe Badgers offense was a major concern coming into the 2006 season, but those concerns have officially been put to rest.If UW head coach Bret Bielema needed any more affirmation of this — besides watching his team enjoy back-to-back 500-yard games — it came when running back P.J. Hill became the second Badger to earn the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week award in as many weeks, with quarterback John Stocco winning it last week.Hill shared the honor with Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith. Last weekend, Hill carried the ball 35 times and ran for 249 yards — including a 60-yard run for a touchdown on the second play of the game.One of the concerns that Bielema addressed at his weekly press conference Monday was Hill’s ability to withstand the physical wear and tear of having a large number of carries week in and week out.”There are certain things that we have done during the course of the week and made certain adjustments during practice of the things that he goes through or doesn’t go through,” Bielema said. “Also, we limit the contact that he goes through from our own players during the course of the week. Our players also realize that we are a better team when P.J. is playing.”Hill split Bielema’s choice for UW offensive MVP of the week with tight end Travis Beckum, who quietly hauled in eight catches for 107 yards, both game highs, against the Wildcats.”I thought [Travis] made a giant step forward, not only in the passing game, but some of the things that he was able to do in the running game,” Bielema said.On the defensive side of the ball, cornerback Jack Ikegwuonu and defensive end Matt Shaughnessy were named the co-defensive most valuable players. According to Bielema, Ikegwuonu has been playing very well the last few weeks and had a very good game against Northwestern, even though he has not put up stellar numbers.”[He] doesn’t have as many stats as we would like to see, but this is because they are not really coming his way,” Bielema said. “There are certain things that he is doing [well], not only on defense, but also on special teams.”Take a numberThe Badgers made their debut in the rankings this week. They are now ranked No. 25 in the nation in this week’s Associated Press Poll, receiving 86 votes.However, Bielema was not flattered by the national recognition. Instead, he said he looks at it as somewhat of a distraction to his players.”I really appreciate the ranking and everything that comes into it,” Bielema said. “I knew it would become an issue, not just from the media and the questions that they were going to be asked, but now they are going to walk into the classroom and people are going to make reference to it.”He emphasized that the players must keep working hard and maintain Bielema’s mentality.”The reason we are in this situation is the focus that we have had and we have kept the ‘1-0’ mentality,” Bielema said. “If we falter off of that, we can lose that same position as fast as we earned it. “No rest for the wearyThe question arose of the Badgers not having a bye week this season. Wisconsin has hit the halfway point of a grueling 12-game stretch in consecutive weeks. This could have a big impact not only on the health of the players, but also keeping the “1-0″ mentality that Bielema has been pushing on his players and his coaches.”What we try to do is understand where we are with our players,” Bielema said. “Some guys, no matter what you do to them during the course of the game, they’re always going to come back on Sunday, and especially giving them Monday off, are going to come back on Tuesday for a strong practice.”Bielema didn’t say either way definitively whether he would prefer to have a bye week or would he rather just keep on moving through the season.”I have nothing to compare it to as a head coach,” Bielema said. “As an assistant coach, you always look forward to those off-weeks because you look forward for your players to have a chance to get healthy.”Hubbard, O-line updatesOne of the major health issues that Bielema addressed was the injury that Paul Hubbard sustained last weekend. Hubbard has been a large contributor to the young receiving core. He has had 19 receptions for 313 yards and two touchdowns on the year.”Sunday’s practice, we didn’t practice him,” Bielema said of Hubbard, who appeared to be knocked out with a concussion Saturday. “But we expect him to go out there [Tuesday] and be able to bounce back.”One of the concerns that some have had was how good the offensive line would be. The O-line lost four starters from last year, which created some skepticism among critics and fans.However, Bielema feels that they have made a lot of progress, not only from last spring, but this year as well.”This was probably the best performance this past weekend in overall pass protection from first quarter to fourth quarter,” Bielema said. “I can’t say enough positive things.”
There are certain intangibles a coach expects of their team’s captain on the field.For Wisconsin head coach John Trask, his captain – senior midfielder Drew Conner – has all the necessary characteristics that make up a great leader on the pitch.“Quality, heart, work-rate,” Trask said. “[Conner]’s got a great engine, a special engine in comparison to most college players.”Conner, a Cary, Illinois native, has had a difficult start to the season, Trask said, but that doesn’t negate Conner’s influence in the UW program during his four seasons in Madison.“[Conner] came in and had an immediate impact as a freshman,” Trask said. “He was a part of a very good team in 2013, and an integral part. It wasn’t like he was a young member of the team. He was a big key.”Conner admits that his career has been up and down, especially in the beginning of this season, but he has his sights set on what the team can make happen during the second half of the season.The role Conner played during his freshman season earned him the honor of a spot on the 2012 Big Ten All-Freshman team due to his two goals, one assist and domineering work ethic in the midfield.The Wisconsin captain has picked up other accolades during his time at UW. Following a one goal, seven assist sophomore season, Conner was selected to the Second-Team All-Big Ten. Conner was also ranked the 73rd best player in the nation by TopDrawerSoccer for his junior year.Coming into the 2015 campaign, and Conner’s senior season, TopDrawerSoccer rated him the 17th best player in the Big Ten.Perhaps the most impressive feat of Conner’s Wisconsin career is that he has started every game of every season. That’s rare for mosts collegiate soccer players, but not for one with professional aspirations like Conner, Trask said.“We feel good about [Conner]’s opportunities to move on in the game to the next level, whether it’s Major League Soccer or potentially overseas,” he said. “There are parts of his game we’d like to continue to see him move forward, but he’s still got over half a season left with us.”Conner has continued maturing during his time at Wisconsin, and Trask said the coaches are still figuring out the best way to utilize his talents while also allowing Conner to continue his development as a player.Something that really helped Conner in his progression as a player was training with professional players during the summer.“I think it did more for my confidence than anything else,” Conner said. “The pro game is definitely just as demanding on the mental side of the game as it is the physical.”While Conner continues his development, he’s also had to provide guidance to the younger guys on the team. Trask says Conner’s dedication to prepare, especially by being the most fit player on the team, sets an example for the rest of the players, both young and old, of how to take care of their business on the pitch.Leadership one of Conner’s strongest traits for men’s soccer teamAs of late, Wisconsin men’s soccer head coach John Trask has gotten some big-time names to come play for him Read…“[Conner] sets the standard on things like the beep test, our fitness test,” Trask said. “He has a hunger to be a good player and what that takes and how he goes about it.”Conner said he’s been trying to get the younger players to be more involved and instill confidence in them, which former UW standouts A.J. Cochran and Tomislav Zadro did with him during his freshman and sophomore years.“I think recently it’s just been trying to get certain guys to feel out the game and sense when they need to take over and get on the ball,” Conner said. “Sometimes as a younger player, you hesitate to get involved when things don’t go perfectly from the start.”The senior midfielder is grateful to have had the opportunity to wear the captain’s armband for the Cardinal and White, but Conner acknowledged that he couldn’t have gotten to be where he is today without some help.“I could never find it alone,” Conner said. “Adam [Lauko] and Carl [Schneider] have done awesome, not to mention many of the other upperclassmen who have stepped up.”Conner was a key piece in the 2013 team that made a magical run into the NCAA tournament. But even though he said it was a great ride during his second year, there’s been one game that has been imprinted into the captain’s memory.Daniels: For Badger men’s soccer, it’s mission accomplishedFor the 13 seniors on the Wisconsin men’s soccer team, the last four years had been building to this moment. Read…“The Rutgers overtime win this season,” Conner said. “That was just ridiculous.”With a little over half of the season left, there’s still time for Conner to leave a significant impact on the Wisconsin soccer program, and Trask has been pleased with what one of his first high-end recruits has done on the pitch for the Badgers.“[Conner’s] had a great career for us,” Trask said. “Now we’re hoping for a lot more this next half-year.”

If it ultimately leads to another national championship for Clemson, then the decisive drive by Lawrence in a game that saw the Tigers outgained — and, in many ways, outplayed — will be remembered be as epic and gripping. It was neither. It was ruthless and efficient.Even the message Lawrence said he delivered to his teammates before taking the field — “Let’s go win it; we’re built for this” — wasn’t exactly the William Wallace “Freedom” speech from “Braveheart.”None of this makes for a tremendous story. It certainly made for a hell of an ending, though. BENDER: Five storylines that will define LSU-Clemson title gameLayup 1: Lawrence drops back and finds wideout Justyn Ross for an easy 11-yard gain.Layup 2: Lawrence scrambles for another 11, taking a hard hit.Layup 3: Lawrence swims through the rush looking left, gives up on that option and sees Amari Rodgers breaking open to the right. Lawrence throws sharply off his back foot, Rodgers catches it in stride, blows up All-American cornerback Jeff Okudah and continues toward a 38-yard gain.Slam dunk: Lawrence holds the ball at his hip and fakes as if he’ll run, then stops and throws almost a jump pass to star running back Travis Etienne. He jets through the middle of the OSU defense and carries safety Jordan Fuller the final 3 yards into the end zone for the score that makes it Clemson 29, Ohio State 23.Down 2 with 3 minutes to play and the offense goes 94 yards on just 4 plays to score the go-ahead touchdown…#ALLIN pic.twitter.com/4OfXFXjdfi— Clemson Football (@ClemsonFB) December 29, 2019It took all of 78 seconds.“There were some huge plays in that game that could have gone one way or another,” Ohio State coach Ryan Day told ESPN following the game. None occurred on the decisive drive.TAKEAWAYS: Lawrence saves TigersOn Clemson’s first 12 possessions, seven of which ended with punts, the Tigers averaged 5.57 yards per play. On the last, they averaged 23.5 yards. Ohio State put up no resistance at all when it mattered most.Of course, there was an overriding reason for this, and several underlying ones.— Lawrence had performed so brilliantly at various points against the Buckeyes that they entered that final possession aware of all he could do to hurt them, and feared every last bit of it. Lawrence has never lost a game as a starting quarterback in college, and he surely won this one for Clemson.— He gets rid of the ball quickly: That was the first completion to Ross.— He runs nimbly, powerfully and authoritatively enough that he ripped off a 67-yard touchdown dash in the first half: That was there in his 11-yard scramble.— He moved in the pocket and progressed quickly through his reads: That was evident in the throw to Rodgers.Lawrence’s 107 rushing yards were an asset in the passing game, as well: That’s where the Buckeyes’ linebackers focused their attention as Etienne sneaked in behind them and encountered so little traffic after catching Lawrence’s final throw.BENDER: Ohio State victim of bad calls, but also its own blunders | AD steamed about overturn”We’d been saving that little play-action to Travis the whole game,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney told ESPN. “It just felt like it was the right time to call it right there, and it hit.” The winning drive in Saturday’s Fiesta Bowl was so easy, it almost seemed there was no greatness to it. Four plays, 94 yards, touchdown, victory, book the flights to New Orleans. It had all the drama of 30-second television commercial.Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence emerging as a hero in the Tigers’ College Football Playoff semifinal victory over Ohio State ought to have required something heroic, no? Instead, it looked like LeBron James in a layup line.
GEELONG, Australia (CMC):Middle order batsman Jermaine Blackwood said he almost lost concentration as he was forced to battle extreme heat on his way to a polished half century for West Indies against Victoria X1 on the first day of their two-day tour match yesterday.Blackwood compiled a well-played 69 to bolster his confidence after scoring a couple of ducks in the first Test as West Indies amassed 303 for eight at Simonds Stadium.The diminutive Jamaican batsman, who scored seven fours and a six, said it was the first time he experienced such extreme heat as temperatures soared to 43 degrees, one of the hottest days on record in the history of Australia.”It was extremely hot out there … dry heat. Even when the wind came across the ground, it was a kind of hot wind. I’ve never experienced anything like it,” said Blackwood.”We’ve played in hot, sticky conditions, but never quite like that.”Blackwood added 99 runs for the third wicket with Kraigg Brathwaite, who top-scored with 78 from 175 deliveries in the first two sessions before retiring to give the rest of his teammates a chance at the wicket.Marlon Samuels struck an aggressive 45 from 39 balls including seven fours. Denesh Ramdin scored 38, while opener Rajindra Chandrika chipped in with 28.”I was quite tired after running some threes. It’s a big ground, so we had to run a few threes. At one point, I felt like I was losing concentration, so you had to dig deep for every ball,” said Blackwood.”I had to put that behind me and just focus on each ball. We got some starts. We just need to convert those starts now.”Blackwood added: “This is international cricket and we will face different conditions. It was cold (in Tasmania) for the first Test and now it’s hot here. It’s all about coping.”West Indies are using the match as part of their preparation for the second Test match at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground, starting Boxing Day.”We’ll just have to go back into the nets and continue to work hard,” he said.”We’re just putting in the work and hopefully it will pay off in the next Test match.”
A dramatic event unfolded in Grand Bassa County when a man identified as Oliver Joe traditionally legalized his relationship with his late girlfriend identified as Mary Davis before her burial.The marriage was a demand by the deceased’s parents, since their daughter and Mr. Joe lived together as husband and wife before her death.Their union was blessed with eight children in the 32 years they lived together and therefore the deceased’s family said before he could own the children, he must perform the symbolic marriage since he did not marry their mother.The “wedding” between the deceased and the boyfriend, occurred in full view of the deceased’s parents and other citizens in Ceegar Town, in District #2, Grand Bassa County.After the ceremony, the remains of the deceased were turned over to Mr. Joe for burial because he had become the husband after satisfying the traditional requirements for marriage.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
