Cricket News ICC Women’s World T20: Australia clinch record fourth title with crushing win over England

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: The Australian women’s cricket team is record-breakers when it comes to ICC World events. They have won the 50-over World Cup six times. On Saturday, at North Sound Antigua, they secured a record fourth World T20 title by crushing England in the final. The Southern Stars bowled England out for a paltry 105 and they chased the target to win the contest by eight wickets. This is Australia’s second World T20 win in the West Indies, having won the title in 2010. Remarkably, in the last time England took on Australia in the final, it was in the 2014 World T20 in Bangladesh and remarkably, they were bowled out for 105 and the target was achieved in 15.1 overs.Read More | Bangladesh continue stellar Test run, beat West Indies in first TestAustralia’s march to the title owed a lot to the all-round efforts of Ashleigh Gardner, the 21-year-old off spinner. Her efforts, combined with consistent contributions from the other Australian bowlers negated the advantage England had after opting to bat. Ellyse Perry and Megan Schutt struck early blows and it was left to Danielle Wyatt and skipper Heather Knight to steady the ship.Read More | Mithali Raj’s manager lashes out at India skipper Harmanpreet KaurHowever, Gardner removed Wyatt for 43 when the batter drilled a flighted delivery to extra cover only for Meg Lanning to take a fantastic catch. With Wyatt’s dismissal, England lost seven wickets for 41 runs, with Gardner accounting for skipper Knight and Anya Shrubsole. The England tail folded cheaply and they were bundled out for 105, with Gardner taking 3/22.In response, Australia started aggressively with Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney sharing a 29-run opening stand. Healy fell for 22 when Sophie Ecclestone breached her defences while Mooney tried to steer Danielle Hazell to third man but ended up edging to the keeper. However, Gardner, having hurt England with the ball, hurt the opposition with the bat as well and she was given good support by Lanning.Gardner broke the shackles by launching Knight over deep midwicket and Australia came closer to the target when Gardner launched Kirstie Gordon over long on for two sixes in one over and victory was sealed in the 16th over when Lanning tapped Natalie Sciver to point for a quick single to spark wild celebrations in the Australian camp.Speaking after the win, Lanning said the calmness displayed by the team was outstanding. “I think this is a very satisfying win. We knew we could change a few things and we are a very calm group and I think we showed that tonight. The girls have been outstanding and the support staff has been excellent,” Lanning said.On the loss, England skipper Knight said it was a competitive wicket but the total was not challenging enough. “We just lost wickets at the key time and we lost momentum and we didn’t put a competitive total on the board,” Knight rued. last_img read more

Sports Kenya bows to pressure, Gor back at Kasarani

PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 29 – The body mandated to run government owned sports facilities in the country, Sports Kenya, has bowed to social media pressure and allowed Gor Mahia to use the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani for their CAF Confederations Cup quarter final match against RS Berkane on April 7.In a statement released by its Director General Pius Metto on Friday evening Sports Kenya say they have asked the Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) to end their shopping expo that was to run from April 3-7, a day before. This means that the Kasarani Stadium will be available for Gor to use on Sunday April 7th.The same director general had earlier on written to Gor Mahia telling them to ‘either use Meru or Machakos’ as they had made prior arrangements with KAM to have the expo at the stadium and that stance was not about to change.This is despite Kasarani, constructed in 1987 to host the All Africa Games being a Sports Complex and first priority always given to sporting events.Social media had gone bonkers entire Friday afternoon with football lovers protesting the decision to push Gor to the second-grade Machakos stadium and give priority to KAM who have almost zero connection to sports.Sports Kenya had attempted to flex their muscles shutting down the calls for them to consider their primary role of promoting sports in the country, but the power of Kenyans on Tiwtter ultimately became too much for them to bear.0Shares0000(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Siblings Sue New York Funeral Home for Giving Father’s Ashes to Another Family

first_imgTwo Indian American siblings have filed a lawsuit against a New York-based funeral home for mixing up the ashes of two people, following which their deceased father’s ashes were given to members of some other family, who then immersed them in Ganga river in India.Susan and Sunil, the adult children of late Sarup Sharma, filed a lawsuit in Nassau County Supreme Court on Aug. 13, saying that the Long Island-based Lake Ronkonkoma Moloney Funeral Home accidentally mixed up the remains of their father with another deceased man of same last name, the New York Post reported.Calling this mix-up “reckless and negligent,” the lawsuit said that the children of Sarup Sharma had to go through “mental anguish” as this mistake on the part of funeral home deprived them of “solace and comfort” and “the right to dispose of their father’s remains as they choose,” the report added.Sarup Sharma died on Feb. 3, 2017 at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in Queens, according to the lawsuit, Newsday reported. The family children hired Moloney Family Funeral Homes for the funeral and cremation services, and for safekeeping of their father’s ashes until they could travel to India.Funeral home officials did not explain to the brother and sister how the mistake occurred, the report cited Oscar Michelen of Mineola, the family’s attorney, as saying.In September 2017, the funeral home gave the ashes of Sarup Sharma to a different grieving family, which was seeking the remains of its deceased member named Shashi Sharma. After getting the ashes, the family traveled to India and immersed them in Ganga.The mistake came to the light after Sarup’s children contacted the funeral home and told them about their planned trip to India. Moloney officials informed them in November 2017 that the ashes were mistakenly given to a wrong family.Shashi’s family got his ashes and traveled to India once again to immerse them in Ganga, while the siblings were deprived of their father’s remains.The funeral home apologized to the grieving families for the emotional trouble caused to them and assured them that they are committed to prevent any such happening in future.“Once we learned of the situation, we immediately reached out to both families to express our remorse and assure them of our full cooperation during this difficult time,” Katherine Heaviside, the funeral home’s spokesperson said, the publication reported. “We have reviewed all of our procedures and have taken steps to further strengthen our protocols to ensure that we maintain the full trust and confidence of the families we serve, as we have for the last 85 years,” she added.The funeral home offered to bear the expense of Shashi Sharma’s family’s second trip to India, the report cited Heaviside as saying.
