I do get affected by failure: Virat Kohli

first_imgNew Delhi: Virat Kohli is not only one of the most successful captains India have had, but also a run-machine. In fact, there seems to be no way that he can fail. But he did fail when it came to the semi-final test against New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup and Kohli has revealed that he too does get affected by failure just as any other human would.“Do I get affected by failures? Yes, I do. Everyone does. At the end of the day, I know my team would need me. I had the feeling so strong in my heart that I am going to come not out and make India go through that tough phase [in the semi-final].“But then again, maybe that was my ego talking because how can you predict something like that? You can only have a strong feeling or maybe it was a strong desire to do something like that,” Kohli told India Today.Kohli wants to leave behind a legacy which other will follow. In fact, the team has already become one of the best when it comes to the longest format of the game, winning both at home and on foreign soil.“I hate losing. I don’t want to walk out and say I could have done this. When I step out on the field, it’s a privilege. When I walk out, I want to have zero energy. We want to leave behind a legacy that future cricketers will say we want to play like that,” he said.Speaking after the second Test against Bangladesh, Kohli though said there was still some time before this Indian team can be compared to the Windies one of the 1970s and 1980s.“I can only say we are at the top of our game. You can’t judge a team’s dominance with seven games. You’re talking about a West Indies side which did it for 15 years,” Kohli said.“So, when we all are close to retiring then you ask me this question. How the decade has gone playing together. Not after seven games. Seven years yes but not seven games,” he smiled.Kohli said the mindset has changed as they now know they can beat any team in the world. “I think there is still time (to compare). But we are quite excited how we are playing and what the challenges are. Going forward we will be playing New Zealand now. Now the frame of mind is to get to the next series in test cricket. Not like we are finished playing at home let’s see what happens abroad. We are waiting to play Test cricket. That mindset has changed. Now we know if we play well we can win anywhere in the world. That’s a very nice and exciting feeling to have within the change room,” he said.

Baždarević: We are going to Greece for Victory

first_imgCoach of the national team of BiH Mehmed Baždarević spoke about the upcoming match with Greece.When asked whether there is anxiety in the BiH camp, Baždarević said:“To be honest, there is both anxiety and relaxation. I am doing everything I can to ensure that we work well and be peaceful because I know that we will need both peace and anxiety on Sunday night in Greece.”Baždarević said that he watched the preparatory match of Greece last night.“Last night’s match of Greece cannot give us much information because only two or three players who will play on Sunday played last night. We know that we will face a good and determined team. We are ready, and the national team is enthusiastic.”Baždarević added that the aim is to achieve a good result.“The aim is to come back with a good result and I hope we will achieve it. Kolašinac had stomach flu and we separated him from the team so that other players would not get ill as well, but he worked hard with his club. We certainly have the same quality as Greece and with the right attitude towards the match a good result can be achieved,” said Baždarević.(Source: ba.n1info.com)last_img read more

Clear Lake council tonight to discuss proposed regulation of new floating dock after Parks & Rec board suggests changes

first_imgCLEAR LAKE — The Clear Lake City Council tonight will consider adopting the first reading of an ordinance regarding the use of the new floating dock at the Main Avenue boat ramp at the seawall. The council at its meeting two weeks ago referred the ordinance to the city’s Parks and Recreation Advisory Board for further review. Under the original language, no more than one commercial vessel could be docked at any one time by any one business renting watercraft to the public, nor could any watercraft or vessel be tied or moored to the dock for more than three continuous hours. In a memo to the council, Parks and Recreation director Randy Miller says the board recommended changes including: allowing 45 minutes for staging and/or removal of commercial watercraft; allowing no more than two commercial vessels at any one time for the purpose of staging or removal; any actively rented craft should fall under the same time limitations as any other watercraft; clarifying a section in the proposed ordinance to include organized events such as regattas, tournaments, or boat shows; and clarifying that commercial vessels or watercraft should refer to the selling of products such as food and goods. The board also suggests that the council look into any similar ordinance that may exist in the Iowa Great Lakes area for comparison, as well as see a discussion further open up with other commercial watercraft rental providers in the Clear Lake-Ventura area for any input they may have to a proposed ordinance. The council meets at 6 o’clock tonight at City Hall.last_img read more
