So we have to say it was close in the last game: ‘Do we start him or not?’ and stuff like this. “It’s really, really good and it’s like always in life, if you learn from your experiences… you cannot learn too much from being injured and stuff like that, but how is your mood?

The four-star recruit has the physical gifts to become an absolute star in college.

While Smriti is currently the No.1 ODI cricketer in the world, T20I captain Kaur’s attacking batting style has made her a household name in the country. Kaur’s fiery batting has made many believe that she is a fearless cricketer. Though according to Mandhana it’s not true.The duo recently appeared on the online chat show ‘What the Duck’ where they shared a number of stories related to the team and their teammates. When the host asked Kaur whether she was afraid of anything at all, a smiling Mandhana jumped in and said that her senior was afraid of ‘ghosts’. She also added that when she tried to scare Kaur, she ‘punished’ her junior by forcing her to share the room with her.”We were playing the World Cup in England. Harry (Harmanpreet) Di is most afraid of ghosts. I myself am a bit in the same league but her fear is on an extreme level. So, I am always itching to scare her. So one day I told her all the ghost stories which were related to the hotel we were staying in. I had heard about a number of ghost-related incidents with our teammates. So I told her everything and she had to listen to all of it because she was undergoing treatment. But later she punished me by forcing me to sleep with her during the night,” said a laughing Mandhana.advertisement”We all had single rooms and the hotel itself felt quite eerie. 3 of us were sleeping in one room but I didn’t let them sleep all night because I myself couldn’t,” explained Kaur.The discussion prompted the host to ask whether there was a ghost at the hotel in reality. Though Smriti and Harmanpreet agreed that they didn’t personally have any such experience, some of their fellow teammates did claim to have encountered ghosts during their stay at the hotel.”We didn’t see any ghost but 2-3 of our teammates said that they felt its presence. For example, Sushma Verma kept saying that the ghost had kept her captive for an hour and didn’t let go. And she actually cried for an hour (Sushma Verma). So who knows, there might have been something,” concluded Mandhana.Also Read | I’ve tried to copy Smriti Mandhana since she used to wear glasses: Riyan ParagAlso Read | Hockey India in awe of Jemimah Rodrigues’ dribbling skills Also Read | USA women’s cricket team creates history by sealing twin berths in global qualifiersFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Anil Kumble-led ICC cricket panel to discuss boundary count ruleAnil Kumble-led ICC cricket panel to discuss boundary count rule

first_imgAnil Kumble-led ICC cricket panel to discuss boundary count ruleAnil Kumble-led committee will discuss the controversial boundary count back rule in their next meeting. England won their maiden World Cup on boundary count rule after a tied Super Over against New Zealand.advertisement Indo-Asian News Service New DelhiJuly 28, 2019UPDATED: July 28, 2019 23:39 IST England edged past New Zealand on the boundary count to win their maiden World Cup. (IANS Photo)HIGHLIGHTSAnil Kumble-led ICC Cricket Committee is to discuss on boundary count ruleEngland won the World Cup 2019 on boundary count rule after a tied Super OverEngland vs New Zealand World Cup 2019 final ended in a tie even after a Super OverFormer India skipper Anil Kumble-led Cricket Committee will discuss issues relating to the World Cup final, including the controversial boundary count back rule, in their next meeting, International Cricket Council (ICC) General Manager, Cricket, Geoff Allardice said.”The Cricket Committee will consider any issues arising from the World Cup final when it next meets (in the first quarter of 2020),” Allardice was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.”A Super Over has been used to determine a winner in a tied match in ICC events since 2009 (replacing the bowl-out), and the tie-breaker after a tied Super Over needed to be derived from something that happened in that particular match. So it has always related to the number of boundaries scored in the match,” he added.England edged past New Zealand on the boundary count to win their maiden World Cup earlier this month, leading to a massive uproar regarding the rule. In the final at Lord’s on July 14, England were adjudged winners of the World Cup on the basis of their superior boundary count – 22 fours and two sixes – to New Zealand’s 17 after the the match ended in a tie after regulation play and Super Over.”Almost all the T20 leagues around the world also use boundaries as the tie-breaker in their Super Overs. We wanted to use the same Super Over regulations that are used across all professional cricket and that’s why it was the way it was. Whether it should be different is something that our cricket committee will consider at some point,” Allardice said.advertisementOn sharing the World Cup, he said that the ICC’s Chief Executives Committee did not deliberate on the matter at its annual conference.”No, that wasn’t discussed. The consistent view has been that the World Cup final needs a winner, and a Super Over was in the playing conditions to decide a tied final in each of the last three World Cups,” he said.Allardice also hailed India skipper Virat Kohli’s comments on the World Test Championship. “It is very encouraging to hear those comments. I know players love playing Test cricket. For the first time there is a real context to the matches they play that extends beyond a particular series.”I know the Test rankings have done a good job over a long period of time in the sense of identifying the best team, but to be able to compete on a points table and play for a spot in the final will add a new element to Test cricket and will make it more interesting to people from the countries not involved in that particular match,” Allardice said.Also Read | Right process followed: ICC backs Kumar Dharmasena’s overthrows decision in World Cup 2019 finalAlso Read | Endured ‘excruciating’ pain during World Cup: Jofra ArcherAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

India vs West Indies 3rd ODI: Dream 11 prediction, captain and vice-captainIndia vs West Indies 3rd ODI: Dream 11 prediction, captain and vice-captain

first_img India Today Web Desk Port of SpainAugust 14, 2019UPDATED: August 14, 2019 11:44 IST India vs West Indies 3rd ODI Dream 11 Prediction (AP Photo)After a convincing show in the second ODI, Virat Kohli and boys will look to seal the deal in the final ODI of the three-match series at the Queen’s Park Oval on Wednesday. With the opening game washed out, the Indians have taken a 1-0 lead and the last game of the series will decide if India will lift the ODI trophy as well after a clinical show in the T20I series.Interestingly, this could be the last time that the legendary Chris Gayle takes the field and the West Indies outfit would look to give him a grand send-off. Speaking during the 2019 World Cup, Gayle had said that the ODI series and the Test series that followed would be his last. But the Windies selectors kept emotions aside and decided to ignore him for the Tests. So, the third ODI could be the last time that the opener is seen in Windies colours.For India, it will be about keeping the foot on the pedal and not giving any inch away to the hosts. After an 11-innings phase where he didn’t score a century, Kohli roared back to register his 42nd century in the second ODI and more than the hundred, it was the way in which he guided Shreyas Iyer in the middle overs that made the knock all the more special.BatsmenThis match will possibly be the final ODI for Chris Gayle and the big-hitting Jamaican will look to end his 50-over career on a high. He failed in the first two matches and will surely look to make amends in the final game so leaving him out of the playing XI is out of the question.advertisementRohit Sharma should be the second-choice opener with the in-form right-hander also due for a big score after a rare failure with the bat in the second ODI.Virat Kohli hit a match-winning hundred in the last game and is the best option at No. 3. He was part of a 125-run partnership with Shreyas Iyer, who showed superb composure with the bat under pressure and hence, is a perfect choice for the No. 4 position.WicketkeeperJust like Rohit Sharma, India wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant is also due for a big one and today just might be his day with the bat. Pant is reliable behind the stumps as well and can earn you a lot of points if he gets going.All-roundersCarlos Brathwaite has shown good form with the ball with three wickets in the last match. And he can demolish any bowling attack in the world on his day with the bat. Choosing him over Jason Holder might just pay off in this match.Ravindra Jadeja should be the second all-rounder your side as he is economical with the ball and is one of the best fielders in the world. He has also shown good form with the bat lower down the order.BowlersBhuvneshwar Kumar should be the first choice when it comes to picking fast bowlers as the Indian seamer has the ability to pick up wickets at the beginning when the ball is swinging and at the end as well with his death-bowling abilities being one of the best in the business.Chinaman Kuldeep Yadav has been India’s first-choice spinner and he repaid the team management’s faith with 3 wickets in the 2nd ODI. He will be a key player for India once again in the final match.Mohammed Shami and Sheldon Cottrell can be the final two players in your Dream XI.

John Peabody aims to inspire with The Hand & EyeJohn Peabody aims to inspire with The Hand & Eye

first_img Editors’ Recommendations On the Road with Mikah Meyer, the First Person to Visit Every National Park Site in One Trip The Best Documentaries on Netflix Right Now For most small business entrepreneurs, having the chance to tell the story of your craft often gets lost in the shuffle of developing and maintaining your business. Focus on growing a customer base, providing quality products, and marketing your business take precedent over finding a medium to spread your message, no matter how influential it may be. For journalist John Peabody however, the passion and inspiration behind what makes every small business unique defines the framework behind his latest project, The Hand & Eye.When John first launched The Hand & Eye nearly one year ago, he began with the simple premise of chronicling a new class of craftsmen, makers, and creative minds in hopes of celebrating their work and telling their stories. But instead of finding currently-trending individuals or businesses, he set out to find those who hadn’t yet had their stories told. Twelve months later, The Hand & Eye features an exclusive mix of entrepreneurs with skills ranging from clock making, to surfboard shaping, to hand-painted outdoor advertisements.Like most good ideas, the thought to create The Hand & Eye struck John at a rather odd moment; on a flight to Puerto Rico for a surfing trip. Although the idea for showcasing small businesses came at 35,000 feet, John knew he wanted to approach it in an original way and aspired to send a different kind of message. “I didn’t want it to be just about the products, but rather something to feature interesting jobs,” Peabody tells The Manual, “a way to inspire people and document fascinating stories.”After spending just a few moments on the site, these fascinating and inspiring stories jump out with every click. A journalist since his days in college, it’s easy to see John has a knack for telling compelling and exciting stories; a knack he puts on full display with The Hand & Eye.But for the former small business editor at Reuters, it’s his improved photography skills he feels most proud of. Not only does he acknowledge the fact that proper photography helps capture the essence of what the makers and craftsmen do, but he feels it lets him do right by them and provide their craft the justice it deserves.For now, The Hand & Eye mostly covers entrepreneurs on the East Coast, with most of the stories coming out of New York City and Brooklyn — where Peabody calls home. Despite New York City experiencing its own industrial and manufacturing renaissance as of late, the idea of branching out and finding more outside of the city is one of the next steps for The Hand & Eye. “I’d love to just travel and bring The Hand & Eye to places not usually covered,” John says, adding, “I’ve always been fascinated with spending a week in Detroit; there’s just so much going on there.”In the mean time, John continues to document the rich culture of craftsmen the East Coast has to offer, and provides his followers with exceptional, awe-inspiring content. It’s hardly just one thing which allows The Hand & Eye to stand out, but rather the harmony of all the unique designers, farmers, woodworkers, and crafters he’s found along the way.With just a year under his belt developing the triumph that is The Hand & Eye, it’s clear John’s passion for small business and penchant for writing runs deep. Color us intrigued to see what John has in store for the next twelve months.To take a look at all of John’s featured small businesses, head on over to The Hand & Eye website. 10 Best Crime Documentaries on Netflix Right Now Professional Nomads Show Off How They Renovated an Airstream 12 Classic Sci-Fi Novels Everyone Who Likes Reading Should Readlast_img read more

TGIF Shopping: Peter Nappi Nashville’s SecretTGIF Shopping: Peter Nappi Nashville’s Secret

first_img The MNML Leather Highlander Travel Bag Makes Short-Term Trips a Breeze Repurpose Your Baseball Glove Into a Wallet With the Pastime Custom Program Editors’ Recommendations This week we’d like to highlight a Nashville-based leather shoemaker Peter Nappi. The brand makes men’s and women’s shoes with Italian craftsmanship in their creative hangout turned store. Founders Philip and Dana Nappi studied leather and shoemaking in Italy before they created the brand, which has become one of Nashville’s best-kept secrets. Peter Nappi is the epicenter of Nashville’s cool kids (like). The luxury shoe retailer is housed within a former meatpacking warehouse in East Germantown. Now it caters to shoppers as well as local creative types. The space has become a local hangout as well as an event space with its carefully curated vintage design.Peter Nappi (Philip’s grandfather) is the inspiration the brand. He emigrated from Italy as a shoemaker in 1904. When the two founders discovered this while studying in Italy it solidified their decision to reinvigorate his legacy with the creation of the brand. The latest collection wears a broken-in look very well. We love that it’s not too glossy and has some character right off the shelf.“The FW14 collection is inspired by the rich, time-worn structure and color palette of Italian architecture, combined with classic American dress/work style,” Philip Nappi said. “Some of the leathers were treated to bring out the luster of the hides, while others were specially treated for a subtly broken in effect.”We are impressed by their two boot options. The Alfeo is their lace-up cap toe brogue boot that comes in both suede and leather. The other is their Rocco, which is a leather lace-up work boot that comes in suede, leather and a cotton canvas. Both hit just above the ankles. If you’re looking for something a little more dressed up try out the Pietro, their cap-toe wingtip that comes in a leather and suede. They also have a plethora of other finely made kicks. Browse their online store to pick up a pair here.
