They have to establish a lead and keep it.”The opening Test at Southampton and the second and third at Old Trafford will be played in a bio-secure environment and behind closed doors because of the coronavirus pandemic.West Indies have been in the UK since June 9 to prepare for the series.They are holders of the Wisden Trophy after winning 2-1 in the Caribbean last year, but have not won a series in England since 1988.“It’s going to be a series that’s watched all around the world and everybody is hoping to see a competitive series,” said Lara, who scored 34 Test centuries.“It would mean a lot to all West Indians if they could win.“If they play good cricket on the first day of the Test series, show they have the mettle to perform against England, that’s the key.” (BBC Sportlast_img read more

Syracuse shows inexperience during grueling Candlewood Suites Invitational

first_img Published on September 9, 2013 at 12:40 am Contact Eric: esriter@syr.edu After grueling two days, Syracuse sits at 1-5.The Orange dropped three of four games this weekend in its first home matches of the season.Playing four games in two days is tough for a team, let alone an inexperienced and unseasoned one. Not only do the games take a physical toll, but they also take a significant mental one.“I think physically very tired, but mentally even more,” SU head coach Leonid Yelin said. “They probably couldn’t sleep well (last night).”It was a grueling schedule. Syracuse played a match at 2:30 p.m. on Friday which went five sets, then played another match with only an hour and a half in between.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFriday’s second match didn’t end until after 10 p.m., and it went five sets. Then, on Saturday, SU had to be back at the Women’s Building for an 11 a.m. start.The exhaustion showed as Syracuse came out with a brutal 12-25 first-set loss Saturday morning. The Orange got it together for the middle sets but fell apart in crunch time, losing in four sets.“I think coming into the game we were tired. We had two games yesterday. We just had to forget about being tired and just play,” junior Nicolette Serratore said. “Obviously it’s not an excuse, we have to play through it.”The problem may be more than just exhaustion, though. The lack of experience on the team seems to be affecting its play.“We are a new team, we have new people,” said sophomore Gosia Wlaszczuk. “We have to work on every single element of volleyball.”When Syracuse is playing well, the players are performing like seasoned veterans. Freshman setter Erica Handley is a true leader on the court while Serratore and sophomore Silvi Uattara bring it together offensively.The middle sets of the Oakland game Saturday were proof of that.“I think things were just clicking. Everything came together the way we wanted to,” said Handley of those sets. “We worked as hard as we could and pushed as hard as we could but things just didn’t click the way we wanted them to.”SU still lacks teamwork.“We are not a team yet, we are like individuals,” Wlaszczuk said. “Sometimes things will click and we will keep going and going.”Most of these problems can be fixed as the season goes along. Whether it is through better team bonding or more practice, the problems are curable.With three more games next weekend SU will have some things to work on. Losing five of the first six matches can take a toll.This week will be a good time to work out the biggest kink: SU’s state of mind.“We just need to be a little more stable, relax a little bit more,” Serratore said. “And kind of have that confidence and that swag that we can go out there and beat these teams if we play like we know we can.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Nigel Birrell: Lottoland – High Court has missed the opportunity to help innovators

first_img StumbleUpon Share Submit Winning Post: Swedish regulator pushes back on ‘Storebror’ approach to deposit limits August 24, 2020 Nigel Birrell, Chief Executive of Lottoland, has published an official statement following the High Court of England & Wales’ rejection of the combined ‘EuroMillions appeal’ against DCMS and its interested parties – the UKGC and National Lottery operator Camelot UK.This week, Lord Justice Green and Justice Gross rejected Lottoland and Multi Lotto UK’s February High Court appeal seeking to annul DCMS approved ‘Gambling Act 2005’ amendments on ‘synthetic lotteries’ offering EuroMillions transactions.“We respect the UK court ruling regarding betting on non-UK Euromillions, but are disappointed at the missed opportunity to remove a piece of legislation that, in our view, conflicts with the fundamental rights of EU law which should allow Lottoland the freedom to provide all of its services to the UK,” Birrell’s statement reads.Lottoland and Multi Lotto had charged DCMS of denying services on EuroMillions, a pan-European lottery game that is not governed by the remit of the UKGC, thus unfairly favouring Camelot UK as National Lottery operator.Furthermore, the appeal stated that DCMS amendments had breached EU laws on member states restricting services and that the government department had not conducted a fair consultation on its policy which was enforced from 6 April 2018.The judgement of ‘EU Lotto Ltd vs DCMS’ saw the High Court back DCMS, stating that as a government department it should have the ability to implement policy amendments on ‘the grounds of protecting recognised public policy initiatives’, such as securing National Lottery funds for good causes.Birrell and Lottoland maintain that the Gambling Act amendments simply serve to support Camelot as National Lottery operator, stifling innovation and market disruptors. Nevertheless, leading Lottoland, Birrell confirms that the Gibraltar firm will not move to contest the High Court’s decision.“We feel that this new legislation simply protects the outdated monopoly and that this ruling goes against freedom of choice and value for customers in the UK.“Lottoland is an innovator who grows the market and offers customers new products and games. That said, we aim to move on and will not appeal the court decision.” UKGC launches fourth National Lottery licence competition August 28, 2020 UKGC hails ‘delivered efficiencies’ of its revamped licence maintenance service  August 20, 2020 Share Related Articleslast_img read more

Lakers’ Magic Johnson at center of NBA probe into Paul George tampering

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Team officials aren’t allowed to make contact with players or their agents to discuss future plans unless it’s after the opening of the players’ free-agency year on July 1.The Pacers’ charges represent a growing concern around the league that potential suitors are reaching out to players and agents with one or two years left on current deals, trying to manipulate opt-outs and trades, league sources said.George, who grew up in Palmdale, informed the Pacers in early June that he planned to opt out of his contract in 2018 and intended to sign a free-agent deal with the Lakers. The Lakers were among the teams who made offers to the Pacers before the NBA draft, but he was ultimately traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder for fourth-year guard Victor Oladipo and second-year big man Domantas Sabonis on June 30.For the Pacers’ purposes, the notion that George wants to sign with the Lakers in free agency next summer surely dampened his trade market.George has long been public in his desire and interest to potentially play for his hometown Lakers, and the 58-year-old Johnson has been open about his affinity for George ever since rejoining the organization’s front office in February. During an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in February, Johnson even joked about ways in which he could openly recruit George while avoiding the league’s tampering rules.“I had to go to school. I had to go to CBA school, salary cap school and tampering school,” he said with a laugh. “You can’t tamper with somebody else’s player.”Kimmel pressed on, asking what would happen if Johnson ran into George somewhere.“We gonna say hi because we know each other, you just can’t say, ‘Hey, I want you to come to the Lakers,’ even though I’ll be wink-winking like, ‘You know what that means, right?’”Tampering likely happens often, especially in a social media age in which team rivalries can become diminished by the relationships between star athletes. Draymond Green helped recruit Kevin Durant from Oklahoma City to the Golden State Warriors a year ago, with text messages that Sports Illustrated reported began after the Warriors’ loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 7 of the NBA Finals. Durant was still under contract with Oklahoma City for 12 days while the conversations took place.George, 27, is one of the NBA’s most talented two-way players and has long been connected to possibly playing for the Lakers. The Lakers made a concerted effort to clear salary-cap space to pursue elite free agents such as George and Cleveland’s LeBron James next summer.George could be eligible to sign a four-year deal worth approximately $130 million with the Lakers next summer in free agency, though Oklahoma City will be able to offer him more than any potential suitor if he decides he wants to stay put.George averaged 23.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 2016-17. The four-time All-Star was part of the 2016 USA Olympic gold-medal team less than two years after suffering a horrific broken leg.

We can confirm, however, that we are cooperating fully with the NBA in the hope of clearing our name as soon as possible,” the statement said.If the league can prove the Lakers were guilty of tampering with George while he was under contract with the Pacers, the Lakers could be punished in a variety of ways, including a loss of draft picks, financial fines up to $5 million, future restrictions on acquiring George and possible suspensions of any offending officials.If the NBA were to find evidence that the Lakers had engaged in a side agreement with George, he could be prohibited from signing a free-agent deal with the team or being part of any future trade to the Lakers.It is unclear if any evidence exists that could incriminate Johnson or the Lakers. The NBA is using the law firm of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen and Katz to probe the matter, the league said in a statement released Sunday.The story on the tampering charges involving George was first reported by Patreon’s Peter Vecsey.center_img The possibility of impermissible contact between Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson and four-time All-Star Paul George is at the heart of an NBA probe into possible tampering, according to an ESPN report.The Indiana Pacers filed tampering charges with the NBA against the Lakers, and the league issued a statement Sunday saying a probe is underway.“The Lakers have been cooperative and, at this point, no findings have been made. We have asked both teams to refrain from commenting while the investigation is ongoing,” the NBA statement said.The Lakers are denying the allegations filed by the Pacers, insisting there is no evidence of tampering, and they expect to be cleared in the matter.last_img read more
