To be honest, Test cricket is dying: ICC chairman Shashank Manohar

first_imgInternational Cricket Council (ICC) chairman Shashank Manohar on Thursday said, people, these days don’t have five day’s time to watch Test cricket and conceded that the longest format of the game is dying.Shashank Manohar, on the second day of his invitational visit to Bangladesh, said the ICC Test Championship, starting after the 2019 Cricket World Cup, is one of the last-ditch efforts to revive Test cricket.Manohar’s comments come even as the ongoing season has produced some fine Test cricket. While Asian giants India registered their first-ever Test series win in Australia, the West Indies are showing signs of revival after thrashing England in the first two Tests of an ongoing three-match series at home.Despite the quality of Test cricket seeing an upward trend, footfall (or the lack of it) at even some of the most popular venues across the globe has been a huge cause for concern. It is safe to say global cricketing powerhouse, India is struggling to bring audiences to the stadiums for Test cricket.At the same time, a large sum of the world’s richest cricket body, Board of Control for Cricket in India’s revenue is generated from Indian Premier League, the glitzy and glamours franchise-based Twenty20 tournament.T20 has the maximum TRP: ICC chairman”We are trying to see whether Test championship can generate interest. Because Test cricket is actually dying to be honest. So to improve the situation, we are trying ways and means. The [ICC] board directors came to a conclusion that if we start a Test championship, it would keep Test cricket alive and generate more interest in the game,” Manohar said.advertisementTalking up the T20 format, the ICC chairman added: “If you look at the TRPs of the broadcasters, T20 has the maximum TRP. It is because of being the shorter version of the game. Nowadays, people don’t have five days time to watch a Test match.”From 10 to 5 everybody has their own job to do so it is very difficult for them to watch this game. T20s get over in three-and-a-half hours, like watching a movie. Therefore, it is picking up very fast.”The ICC approved its first-ever Test championship for a two-year period between 2019 and 2021. Top nine teams will play six series each during the said duration in a home and away format. The two teams finishing at the top two spots of the Test championship table will then play the final.The Test championship is one of ICC’s latest moves to bring context to Test cricket. While the introduction of day-night cricket saw an increase in attendance, India’s reluctance to adopt the pink-ball cricket is not helping the sport.ICC chairman on cricket’s inclusion to OlympicsMeanwhile, Shashank Manohar also spoke about the practical difficulties of getting the International Olympic Committee to include cricket in the Olympic Games.”We are trying to take it to Olympics but there are certain hurdles. The bigger issue is the Olympics is held over 15 days. How do you finish a world event of cricket in fifteen days?” Manohar added.”For that, you need cricket stadiums also. Olympics are not held only in cricket-playing countries.”Also Read | 20 years on: A look back at Anil Kumble’s historic 10-wicket haul vs PakistanAlso Read | Won’t be disappointed even if India lose New Zealand T20s, focus is on World Cup: GavaskarAlso Read | Vidarbha beat Saurashtra by 78 runs to defend Ranji Trophy titleAlso See:last_img read more

Urban Meyer Says Braxton Miller Position Change Story “Jumped The Gun”: “I Haven’t Made Those Decisions Yet”

(Photo by Rich Schultz /Getty Images) braxton miller urban meyer 2012 ohio state spring gameTwitter/@StephDEpifanioSports Illustrated dropped a late news bomb on the college football world earlier, with the news that Braxton Miller will be moving to wide recevier/h-back for the coming season. The move has been met with praise from Buckeye fans, and members of the team. One key member of the program isn’t ready to fully commit to the move, however: head coach Urban Meyer. The three-time national champion told The Columbus Dispatch that reports of the official position change are a bit premature.“I haven’t made those decisions yet,” Meyer told The Dispatch. “It’s a little bit jumping the gun here. Braxton came to see me. He’s been talking to me about it (the switch). We’ve been working at it, but I’m not ready to say exactly how we’re going to use him yet.”Considering Pete Thamel’s SI report was based on a conversation with Miller, we have to imagine the move is, in fact, happening. Meyer is probably not thrilled that it was announced in July, giving Virginia Tech and others more than a month to prep for a J.T. Barrett or Cardale Jones-led offense, as well as figure out how to defend Miller as a skill guy. Otherwise, this would be a pretty crazy redirection by members of the Buckeye program.[Columbus Dispatch]last_img read more

Dermatologist shares five common sunscreen mistakes and offers tips to avoid them

first_img Ignoring the label- There are a variety of sunscreens on the market. To effectively protect yourself from the sun, the AAD recommends looking for sunscreens that are broad-spectrum, water-resistant and have an SPF of 30 or higher. Using too little- Most people only apply 25-50% of the recommended amount of sunscreen. However, to fully cover their body, most adults need about one ounce of sunscreen – or enough to fill a shot glass. Apply enough sunscreen to cover all skin that isn’t covered by clothing. Apply the sunscreen 15 minutes before going outdoors, and reapply every two hours while outdoors or after swimming or sweating. Applying only in sunny weather- Alarmingly, the AAD found that only about 20% of Americans use sunscreen on cloudy days. However, the sun emits harmful UV rays all year long. Even on cloudy days, up to 80% of UV rays can penetrate your skin. To protect your skin and reduce your risk of skin cancer, apply sunscreen every time you are outside, even on cloudy days. Using an old bottle-The FDA requires that all sunscreens retain their original strength for at least three years. Throw out your sunscreen if it’s expired or you’re unsure how long you’ve had it. In the future, if you buy a sunscreen that lacks an expiration date, write the purchase date directly on the bottle so that you know when to toss it out. Relying solely on sunscreen- Since no sunscreen can block 100% of the sun’s UV rays, it’s also important to seek shade and wear protective clothing, including a lightweight, long-sleeved shirt, pants, a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses with UV protection.

To help change this behavior and reduce the risk of skin cancer, the AAD’s 2019 SPOT Skin Cancer™ campaign is asking Americans “Do you use protection?” and encouraging the public to “practice safe sun” -; no matter your age, gender or race. To learn more about skin cancer prevention and detection and to find a free skin cancer screening near you, visit DoYouUseProtection.org.Additionally, the public can help raise awareness of skin cancer by using the hashtag #PracticeSafeSun when sharing AAD resources, photos of how they “use protection” outdoors, or encouraging friends and family to take advantage of the AAD’s free skin cancer screenings. Individuals who have been affected by skin cancer can also share their personal stories on SpotSkinCancer.org to provide support and inspiration for others fighting skin cancer and communicate the importance of skin cancer prevention and early detection. Reviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)May 14 2019Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States, affecting one in five Americans in their lifetime. Yet according to dermatologists from the American Academy of Dermatology, most cases of skin cancer can be prevented by protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays.The best way to do this, they say, is by seeking shade, wearing protective clothing and applying a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. However, in a recent survey, the AAD found that not everyone is applying their sunscreen correctly -; leaving people vulnerable to dangerous ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Sunscreen is the most important skin care product you can use, as it helps prevent sunburn, skin cancer and premature skin aging, including wrinkles and age spots. However, to ensure the best protection for you and your family, it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s directions before using.”Tanya Kormeili, MD, FAAD To help the public protect their skin and reduce their risk of skin cancer, Dr. Kormeili shares five common sunscreen mistakes and how to avoid them: Source:American Academy of Dermatology Sunscreen is a vital tool in the fight against skin cancer, including melanoma, the deadliest form.
