New Delhi: To bowlers bruised and battered, and faced with the frightening prospect of again running into Virat Kohli, spin great Shane Warne offered an advise: bowl at either leg or wide of off stump, but not at the stumps. “If you’re going to bowl to Virat Kohli, you either bowl at leg stump and protect the on side, or you bowl wide of off stump and you protect the off side. You cannot bowl at the stumps, because he can hit you both ways,” Warne was quoted as saying ‘ESPNcricinfo’. Also Read – Dhoni, Paes spotted playing football together “So, I think you’ve to take out one side of the field. Protect just one side of the field, that’s how you bowl to very good players,” the Australian added. Warne plotted Kohli’s dismissal if he were to actually bowl to him. “I’d be bowling wide of off stump and letting him try to cover drive with a slip, short cover and some protection out there. So then it’ll be very hard for him to get it over the leg side. That’s what I’d be trying to do and hopefully get a little bit lucky and he mis-hits one.” Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian Open Warne said he has not seen anyone “dominate” one-day international cricket like Kohli has, but steered clear of calling him the greatest of all time. “I got asked the question last night and again this morning: is Virat Kohli the best player in one-day cricket? Is he better than Tendulkar, is he better than Lara? I’m still thinking about it, I’m still trying to work that out.” Since the start of 2016, Kohli has amassed 3985 runs in 59 ODI innings, maintaining a staggering average and strike rate at the same time. Warne continued, “The one thing we can say is I don’t think we have seen anyone dominate one-day cricket like Virat Kohli has. The best player I saw (Don) Bradman’s the best so he doesn’t even come into the equation but Viv Richards is the best player I saw. As a player, playing against them, Lara and Tendulkar were the two best players that I bowled to.” The Indian has just scored his 41st ODI century, inching closer to Tendulkar’s record of 49 tons. “You know records are different in different eras and it’s very hard to judge. All you can judge is how a player is in their era, and Virat Kohli is so far ahead in one-day cricket than everybody else in hundreds made, especially while chasing that sets him apart from everybody else that is playing,” said Warne, known for his aggressive approach in his heydays as the world’s best leg-spinner.

Behind a pair of double-doubles from its star players, the No. 7 OSU women’s basketball team (5-0) overcame a slow start to defeat UNC-Wilmington 88-69 on Sunday at Value City Arena. Center Jantel Lavender scored 25 points to go with 11 rebounds and point guard Samantha Prahalis scored 21 points and recorded 11 assists in her second game back from serving a three-game suspension for committing a secondary violation in the offseason. The Buckeyes struggled to establish a rhythm in the first half, committing seven turnovers and missing five of their first eight free throw attempts. OSU coach Jim Foster said his team is still adjusting to Prahalis’ presence in the line-up. “Without a doubt it’s a work in progress,” Foster said. “In the first half we forced some issues … there’s no bad teams this time of year, let alone, that’s a good team.” UNC-Wilmington led the Buckeyes 17-16 with nine minutes remaining in the first half before a Prahalis floater regained the lead for OSU. Amber Stokes then added to the OSU lead with a jump shot and stole the ensuing inbounds pass, finding Prahalis for another floater, which extended the Buckeyes’ lead to 22-17. Paced by 12 first-half points from guard Brittany Johnson, the Buckeyes failed to push their lead to more than eight points, as UNC-Wilmington cut the Buckeye advantage to 37-32 at the end of the half following a 3-point shot by Abria Trice. Johnson finished the game with 17 points. “Brittany did a very good job at the offensive end,” Foster said. “On this team, if you run, you’re going to get pretty good shots.” The Buckeyes had a difficult time putting away the Seahawks in the second half, as back-to-back 3-point shots from Alisha Andrews and Jessica Freeman cut the Buckeyes’ lead to 57-54 with less than 11 minutes remaining in the game. “When you win a lot of games, you’re targeted by your opponents,” Foster said. “We’re the big game on a lot of teams’ schedules.” The Buckeyes extended their lead to 11 points on a 3-point shot from Prahalis, but the Seahawks answered back again on the very next play when Brittany Blackwell was fouled as she converted a lay-up and made the subsequent free throw. The Seahawks, however, couldn’t find an answer for Lavender in the second half; with less than seven minutes remaining, she scored on six consecutive OSU possessions, pushing the OSU lead to 80-65. “We started running the floor really well, reversing the ball and making the extra pass,” Lavender said. “It was just, basically, attention to detail, running the plays right and reversing the ball.” Lavender’s basket with 6:02 remaining in the second half moved her past former OSU center Jessica Davenport for the school’s record for career field goals. “I’ve been fortunate to coach some very, very talented post players here,” Foster said. “Jantel got that running start as a freshman here and she hasn’t stopped since, so it was just a matter of time until that was going to happen.” The Buckeyes will next face Virginia on Thursday in the Big Ten-ACC challenge, when they’ll play their lone game of the season at St. John’s Arena before taking on No. 11 Oklahoma on Sunday at Value City Arena. “I like the challenge, I like the fact that we’re playing a lot of different teams with a lot of different looks,” Lavender said. “It’s basically preparing us for anything that we could potentially face in the NCAA tournament.”
Liverpool midfielders Philippe Coutinho (center) and Steven Gerrard (left) and defender Jon Flanagan (right) celebrate scoring a goal during a match against Manchester City April 13 at Anfield. Liverpool won, 3-2.Courtesy of MCTWhen discussing the history of football — the European kind — there are certain clubs that stand out as giants of the game.Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Manchester United, Ajax and Liverpool.Between all of these clubs, numerous domestic and European titles have been claimed, including 13 of the last 16 UEFA Champions League titles.But one o f these clubs, Liverpool, despite all of its historical success, has been a ghost of its former self in recent years.The club owns 18 English league titles, but hasn’t won one since the 1989-90 season. It hasn’t won a European competition title either since 2005’s epic comeback from 3-0 down against Milan.But now, after taking care of Manchester City 3-2 at home this past Sunday, Liverpool has what seems to be its best chance to claim its first Premier League title (the Premier League was established in 1992 in place of the Football League First Division).As an avid Manchester City fan — judge me all you want, I don’t care — this loss pained me because it means that Liverpool controls their destiny in the race for the title.But not even the most dedicated fans of other English clubs can deny that on some level, Liverpool deserves to win another title eventually.Sure, striker Luis Suarez is deplorable — having the infamous distinction of biting an opponent during a game, on two separate occasions — but the storylines are just too great to fight against.A young manager in Brendan Rodgers, who is so close to reaching the summit at the sprightly age of 41.Suarez and striker Daniel Sturridge combine to create one of the more entertaining goal scoring pairings in recent memory, as they currently sit first and second in goals scored this season.It is also the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.During an FA Cup semifinal match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest April 15, 1989, at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield, England, a steel-fenced barrier broke, and 96 Liverpool supporters died from injuries related to the accident.But perhaps the greatest of the storylines is that of talismanic captain Steven Gerrard.Gerrard has been with the club since 1998, making 471 appearances and scoring 111 goals, and is likely to go down as one of the greatest players to ever wear the Liverpool kit. But despite all of his hard work and success with the team, he has never won the Premier League title.At age of 33, his career is likely coming to an end sometime in the next couple years, and it is hard to deny he deserves a title.Gerrard was emotional following the win against Man City, saying at times he felt the game would never end.“That win means so much,” Gerrard said in an interview with Sky Sports 1. “They got back into the game, but I think we showed today that we want to go to the wire. We want to go all the way. That’s the longest 90 minutes I’ve probably ever played in. It felt like the clock was going backwards in some parts of the game.”Sure, the title is likely to come down to the wire — Liverpool is only two points clear of Chelsea, and Man City sits six points back but have played one less game — but for now the Liverpool faithful has hope that the drought will end and Liverpool will be restored to the elite club it once was.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez says “nothing justifies” Spain sacking coach Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the World Cup in response to Champions League winner appointing him new manager.Lopetegui who said he was initially congratulated by federation president Luis Rubiales insisted he acted in a “professional and honest” manner in accepting the appointment on Tuesday, only to be dismissed the following day.However, the Spanish football federation said it fired Lopetegui two days before Spain’s opening game in Russia because the discussion for the job occurred “without any information” communicated to the organization.On the other hand, Perez said Rubiales’ reaction was “one of pride” and he “disrespected” Real.He also said the agreement was announced before the World Cup to “make it transparent and avoid speculation and rumours”.Top 5 Atletico Madrid players to watch in next week’s UCL Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 With the Champions League about to start, we need to start talking about the Top 5 Atletico Madrid players to watch in the competition.Atletico…He cited Chelsea signing then Italy boss Antonio Conte before Euro 2016 and Manchester United confirming Dutch manager Louis van Gaal’s appointment before the 2014 World Cup.“We had legitimate freedom to make this agreement,” said Perez, according to BBC.“That agreement has somehow been interpreted as disloyal.“The president’s response was unprecedented. Nothing justifies Lopetegui not being on the bench for tomorrow’s game.”
