South Africa knocked out of the World Cup with Pakistan defeat

first_imgSOUTH Africa’s hopes of reaching the World Cup semi-finals are over as their nightmare tournament continued with a 49-run defeat to Pakistan at Lord’s.The Proteas have failed to pass the group stages for just the second time and face two dead rubbers over the next two weeks.South Africa failed to reach the knockout rounds as hosts in 2003, but still won three of their six encounters.Head coach Ottis Gibson’s men have only beaten minnows Afghanistan at this tournament, and still have to face Sri Lanka and Australia.Even three wins in nine matches would not gloss a woeful campaign, but given the Proteas’ dire form the chance of consolation victories appears remote.Former England bowling coach Gibson’s contract expires after this tournament and is unlikely to be renewed.SA Cricket World Cup record• 1992 – Semi-finals• 1996 – Quarter-finals• 1999 – Semi-finals• 2003 – Group stage• 2007 – Semi-finals• 2011 – Quarter-finals• 2015 – Semi-finals• 2019 – Group stageFaf Du Plessis may well relinquish the captaincy too.Du Plessis hit 64 as South Africa managed just 259 for nine, failing to reach the 309 required for victory.The beleaguered 34-year-old has had to duck as many brickbats off the field as bouncers at the crease as the Proteas’ figurehead in England, and few would begrudge him having had enough.Quinton De Kock posted 47, while Hashim Amla and Aiden Markram both failed amid another miserable top-order return for South Africa.This latest comprehensive defeat came at the hands of an erratic Pakistan, who kept alive their own hopes of a semi-final but should not boast the quality or consistency to make it that far.Haris Sohail’s 89, including a 71-run partnership with Imad Wasim from just 40 balls, ultimately proved the difference between the sides.Pakistan’s 308 for seven proved more than sufficient, as Babar Azam posted 69 and openers Imam Ul Haq and Fakhar Zaman both notchedImran Tahir proved the pick of the Proteas’ bowlers, taking a smart two wickets for 41 runs.Lungi Ngidi ended on three for 64 but those figures were massaged by two soft dismissals at the death.Markram’s removal of Mohammed Hafeez raised questions as to whether South Africa should have put more faith in spin sooner in this tournament.If the Proteas’ injury-hit pace attack has proved problematic though, their batting has been little short of abject.Wahab Riaz plundered three for 46 and Mohammad Amir two for 49, but neither man had a particularly testing afternoon with the ball.Rarely has a South Africa side suffered for such a lack of top-order aggression, and that cost Du Plessis and company dearly once again.Caption.Haris Sohail returned to the Pakistan XI for the first time since their opening defeat by West Indies and

Aussies name huge 26-player group with eye on UK tour

first_imgUNCAPPED trio Daniel Sams, Riley Meredith and Josh Philippe are among a preliminary list of 26 players named yesterday by national selectors as Australia’s men’s team looks towards a return to on-field action.Australia’s next assignment is yet to be confirmed, although Cricket Australia and the England & Wales Cricket Board are in discussions about a limited-overs series in the UK in September.With that in mind, selectors have identified 26 players of interest, a large group that will help cover a range of contingencies for a possible England tour, which will likely be played in a bio-secure ‘bubble’, meaning replacement players won’t be able to be drafted in.A final squad will be named if and when the tour is confirmed.Other notable names on the list of 26 are Glenn Maxwell, who hasn’t played for Australia since October, as well as batsmen Travis Head and Usman Khawaja, who have recently been out of favour in white-ball cricket.Paceman Andrew Tye has also been named despite not being offered a state contract by Western Australia for this season.Victoria’s Peter Handscomb and veterans Shaun Marsh and Nathan Coulter-Nile, who were all part of Australia’s World Cup campaign last year, were all overlooked while WA pace duo Jhye Richardson and Jason Behrendorff were not considered due to injury.Other players of note to have not been named are Test quick James Pattinson, recent ODI and T20 squad member Ashton Turner and domestic stars like Cameron Green, Daniel Hughes, Nathan Ellis and Jono Wells.Ben Oliver, CA’s Executive General Manager of National Teams, said while officials are still working through the logistics of touring England, the announcement of a 26-man group of players gives everyone some much-needed clarity.“The ECB are a long-standing and valued international cricket partner and we are doing all we can to give the tour the best possible chance of taking place,” he said.“We continue to work with the ECB and government agencies and a decision on the tour will be made in due course.“In the meantime, the identification of a preliminary list will enable us to work with players and states more directly on the preparation for the tour in the hope it can proceed.“The health and wellbeing of players and staff, along with our commitment to public health within our communities, remain our utmost priority.”A short tour consisting of three ODIs and three T20s was originally scheduled for this month but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.If the tour goes ahead, it would likely require players and coaches to be quarantined in hubs during the series – like the England and West Indies players are currently – while members of the touring party may also need to quarantine when they return to Australia.“This preliminary list covers the contingencies of playing One-Day Internationals and T20 Internationals in bio-secure hubs with the likely prospect of not being able to bring in replacements should the tour proceed,” selector Trevor Hohns said.“The preliminary list includes several exciting young players who have recently excelled at state level and in the BBL. These emerging players are those we would like to develop further as we believe they have a bright future in Australian cricket.“The preliminary list also has a view towards the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup and in the longer term the 2023 ICC World Cup.”Australia’s preliminary squad: Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Aaron Finch, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Ben McDermott, Riley Meredith, Michael Neser, Josh Philippe, Daniel Sams, D’Arcy Short, Kane Richardson, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa.(Cricket.comau)last_img read more

Keck opens new stem cell research center on HSC

first_imgThe Keck School of Medicine welcomes the new Eli and Edythe Broad CIRM Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research today with the grand opening of a $80-million, five-story building.The dedication ceremony will begin at 10:30 a.m. and will include a ribbon cutting, speeches and tours following the celebration of the 87,500-square foot building located on the Health Sciences Campus.Keck School Dean Carmen Puliafito, USC President C.L. Max Nikias, State Sen. Gloria Romero, building donors Eli and Edythe Broad, and representatives from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine will be present at the ceremony.The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation, a Los-Angeles based national philanthropy aiming to “advance entrepreneurship for the public good in education, science and the arts” according to its mission statement, donated $30 million toward the development of the building, in addition to CIRM’s $27-million gift. Additional donations for the building were made by private philanthropists.The building received a silver Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design designation, the first LEED designation on the HSC. The structure earned its designation for its eco-friendly design, which incorporated a unique low-iron glass and an HVAC system that uses water instead of air for cooling.The center, which is the newest addition to the group of biomedical research centers on the HSC, will house three areas of study: stem cell, preclinical and clinical research.“Our goal in investing in this world-class center at USC is to create an integral hub for stem cell research in Southern California,” Eli Broad told Keck news. “This innovative building represents the infinite possibilities for medical discovery by researchers drawn from around the world.”last_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — It might be one of the most unusual pictures one will ever see. But Thursday’s storm wasn’t exactly your normal storm.Stephen Locke of www.tempestgallery.com, is a storm chaser from Rowland Park, Kans. near Kansas City, Mo. He has been chasing storms of all kinds across the great plains for 20 years. The storm he chased yesterday, was as unusual as one he’s ever witness.He had been following this particular storm from Salina which was heading straight south. As he was going south on the Kansas Turnpike, he noticed the storm had developed a nice looking “shelf cloud,” or the mushroom shape seen in  this picture…Photo taken just east of the turnpike by Stephen Locke.“(The storm) really took on a new form as it passed through Wichita,” Locke said. “I had to get off the turnpike and get a shot of it right then and there.”Locke got off the Exit 19 ramp and turned east toward Oxford. He shot this using a wide-angle lens just north of the Gary and Charlotte Seyfert house.It has become a Facebook sensation.Locke wrote: Shelf cloud beast at Wellington, Kansas 06.27.2013. The grittiest storm that ever chased me (at 80mph). Still pulling sand out of my eyes. You can see it kicking and sucking dirt. Shortly after this image, as we crossed the border into Oklahoma, it was a full on haboob.Locke said he continued south trying to stay in front of the storm to Tonkawa, Okla. Eventually he could not keep up.Kenneth Cook, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Wichita, said the storm was unusual in that it formed in the northeast around Wilson Lake and headed almost straight south. He said it was similar to the storm that went through Cheney Lake in 2006.A shelf cloud is formed as warm, moist air rises along the front edge of a gust front and are associated with severe thunderstorms. These clouds are especially prevalent when the air is very stable near the base of the thunderstorm, Cook said.There’s been debate just how strong of winds and the amount of rain Wellington received. Seyfert said he got about .4 inches of rain. The NWS had no readings from Wellington. Mulvane received .58 inches while Caldwell received .37 inches, Cook said.As far as the wind, there were 60 mph winds in Belle Plaine, 80 in Harper, 89 in Wichita and 70 in Cowley County according to NWS tallies.Locke, whose web gallery are filled with incredible storm pictures, said when it comes to the ferocity of storms, this was a big one.last_img read more
