Pietersen concerned about England pace post-Anderson, Broad

first_imgBy Sudipto GangulyMUMBAI (Reuters) – Kevin Pietersen is concerned about England’s test bowling resources when the long-serving pace duo of James Anderson and Stuart Broad call time on their careers, the former captain has told Reuters.The experienced new ball pair, both in their 30s, have recently said they were aiming to be part of England’s bid to reclaim the Ashes in Australia next year and would subsequently consider retirement.“I am worried about England’s Test team, when Broad and Anderson go. They are on their last legs at the moment,” Pietersen told Reuters in an interview.“If Broad and Anderson go, there’s going to be a big, big gap to fill. Do they have the bowlers?“Mark Wood is very good, however he’s full of injuries. And Joffra Archer, he’s also had that elbow injury during that South African series, so he hardly played.“So it will be about how quickly England can fill that gap because … if you can’t take 20 wickets in the Test match you really are behind the eight ball.”Anderson, 37, is Test cricket’s most prolific fast bowler with 584 victims but has not played since January when he suffered a rib injury in South Africa.Broad, who is second on England’s list with 485 wickets, is four years younger but does not see his playing career continuing as long as Anderson’s.Pietersen was more confident about the leadership of the team, though admitted he was among those who had reservations about Joe Root’s captaincy before the 3-1 Test series triumph in South Africa earlier this year.“I think that he came away from that tour a much better leader, a much better captain, and with a lot more respect from a lot of people that had reservations about him leading into that Test tour in South Africa,” he said.SENSATIONAL STOKES England held Australia to a 2-2 draw in last year’s home Ashes series but even then needed Ben Stokes’s brilliant unbeaten 135 to win the third Test in thrilling fashion at Headingley.The New Zealand-born all-rounder also played a spectacular leading role in England’s 50-overs World Cup triumph in 2019 and was Player of the Series in South Africa.“He’s been absolutely sensational over the last few years,” said Pietersen.“We all knew he had cricketing talent, we all knew he had the ability to turn the game on its head.“But for him to consistently do it, and for him to prepare the way that he continues to prepare, and to play the way that he plays, he is a huge asset to that England team.”Despite his appreciation for Stokes’s abilities, Pietersen said it was too soon to compare the 28-year-old with England great Ian Botham.“Comparing people, I think you can only do at the end of a career,” said Pietersen, who scored more than 8,000 runs for England in 104 tests.“In terms of match winning they’re right up there with each other. They both win games, single-handedly, so the comparisons I think are quite unfair while a guy is still playing.“I hated being compared to people. I just wanted to play and be me.”South African-born Pietersen has continued to be himself after retiring from cricket in 2018, becoming deeply involved in animal conservation and highlighting the plight of the rhinoceros.His charity, Save our Rhino Africa/India (SORAI), will be relaunched towards the end of June.last_img read more

Galaxy Book 2 Handson Meet Samsungs Surface Pro Killer

first_imgThe first round of Snapdragon Windows laptops didn’t catch on, but Samsung is hoping to change that with the new Galaxy Book 2, which promises 20 hours of battery life along with Gigabit LTE and a faster Snapdragon 850 processor.I had a chance to go hands-on with this 2-in-1, which includes a keyboard and pen (unlike the Surface Pro 6). The Super AMOLED display and design look great, and there’s some special goodness here for Galaxy phone owners. But the jury is out on the performance of the Snpadragon 850 chip.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

It will be available through ATT.com, Microsoft.com and Samsung.com initially, followed by AT&T, Sprint and Verizon stores. “It’s not just about shoving a modem into a PC,” said Don McGuire, vice President of product marketing at Qualcomm. “Samsung’s know-how in bringing this to market is important. Samsung understands the operator channel.”MORE: Surface Pro 6 Review: The Best 2-in-1 Just Got BetterDesign and DisplayThe Galaxy Book 2 is one of the sleekest convertibles I’ve seen this year. The silver magnesium back feels sturdy, as does the aluminum flip-out kickstand. The right side houses two USB-C ports (not Thunderbolt 3) along with a headphone jack, while the right side has the SIM card slot for LTE. This is where you can also plug in a microSD card. Around back you’ll find a fingerprint reader and 8-MP camera. There’s a 5-MP camera up front. Samsung says the camera supports Windows Hello, so you should be able to log in fast via facial recognition.The Galaxy Book 2 weighs 1.75 pounds as a slate and about 2.4 pounds as a laptop, which is pretty light and in line with other 2-in-1s.DisplayThe bezel around the screen is a bit thicker than I’d like, but this 12-inch Super AMOLED panel (2160 x 1440 pixels) is rich and bright.I played a quick Aquaman trailer on YouTube, and the colors really popped on this panel. Other highlights include dual speakers tuned by AKG with Dolby Atmos support.Key Specs: CPU, RAM and StorageThe Galaxy Book 2 is powered by a Snapdragon 850 processor, a step up from the Snapdragon 835 chip inside convertibles like the HP Envy x2 and Asus NovaGo. Qualcomm says to expect a 30 percent performance improvement. The $999 configuration includes 4GB of RAM, which is on the low side when many other ultraportables and 2-in-1s come with 8GB standard. There’s also 128GB of storage on board.Keyboard and S PenThe S Pen on the Galaxy Book 2 supports 4096 levels of sensitivity and the inking felt super smooth during my brief hands-on time. I also like that the back of the S Pen works as an eraser, similar to the Surface Book 6.However, I have a couple of complaints. The S Pen feels almost too light, and while it does attach to the left side of the system magnetically, the connection doesn’t feel as strong as the Surface Pen does with the Surface Pro 6.Battery LifeSamsung is targeting very long endurance with this device, and it says that you should expect up to 20 hours of battery life — or more than two full work days. By comparison, the Surface Pro 6 lasted close to 9.5 hours on our tests.The Galaxy Book also offers fast charging support, but we’re awaiting details on how fast.MORE: Laptops with the Longest Battery Life Carrier Support and Samsung FlowOne key differentiator for Samsung is how the Galaxy Book 2 works with Galaxy phone. The Samsung Flow app will let you transfer files and get notifications right on this Windows device. I tried this out with a Galaxy Note 9 and it worked pretty well. OutlookThe Galaxy Book 2 looks like it could give ARM-based Windows PCs a shot at wider appeal. The price isn’t cheap, but you get a keyboard and pen, and the performance of the Snapdragon 850 processor should be better than before — though maybe not quite in the same league as a Core i5 chip. I also like the Super AMOLED display. However, I wish the S Pen’s magnetic connection to the unit were stronger. It will really come down to how well the Book 2 balances its potentially epic battery life and speed, and how well this device’s ARM chip runs non-Windows Store apps.
