Rohit Sharma, Indian cricket’s milestone man, turns 31

first_imgHappy Birthday Rohit Sharma!The hitman, as he is popularly known, is in the middle of a gruelling Indian Premier League season and is trying to help Mumbai Indians get their campaign back on track after a disappointing start.Rohit, who turns 31 today, recently smashed an unbeaten 56 to lead his team to an 8-wicket win over Chennai Super Kings in Pune which helped Mumbai Indians stay afloat in the IPL.But IPL apart, Rohit had a very successful season with the bat for India last year when he amassed 1293 runs in 21 ODIs with six hundreds and five fifties. He was only behind captain Virat Kohli on the list of batsmen with most runs in 2017.Rohit has been India’s most prolific opener in the 50-over format which is why he is one of the key reasons behind the Men in Blue’s success since 2013, when he was promoted to the opener’s slot by then skipper MS Dhoni.At 31, he holds some of the most significant batting records in international cricket.He is the only batsman in the world to smash three double hundreds in ODIs and holds the record for the highest individual score of 264 in the 50-over format.Rohit is also the joint-record holder for the fastest century in T20 internationals when he slammed a ton in just 35 balls against Sri Lanka in Indore last year.He is also the only captain to win three IPL titles while leading the Mumbai Indians. This season he has been inconsistent with the bat but still managed to score 196 runs in 7 games so far at 32.66 with two half-centuries.advertisementMumbai however, have failed to fire as a team and are currently placed sixth in the IPL points table with two wins in seven games. Rohit’s team has always been slow-starters in the league and have gained momentum in the second half of the tournament.But they already have a huge task at hand of winning at least six more matches to have a chance on paper to make the playoffs.Rohit therefore, has a huge task at hand at the moment and will have to find a way to keep inspiring MI and keep the winning run going.But even amidst the stiff competition, wishes poured in for Rohit on social media.Birthday boy @ImRo45 was spotted with his better half at the Pune airport yesterday!#CricketMeriJaan #MumbaiIndians #HappyBirthdayRohit Indians (@mipaltan) April 30, 2018Wishing @ImRo45 the happiest of birthdays.

Poulsen punishes wasteful Peru

first_imgPeru 0 Denmark 1: Heartbreak for Cueva as Poulsen strikes Stephen Creek Last updated 1 year ago 01:59 6/17/18 yussufpoulsen-cropped Getty Images Christian Cueva was reduced to tears half-way through Peru’s 1-0 defeat to Denmark after he missed a penalty. Yussuf Poulsen bounced back from conceding a first-half penalty to score the decisive goal in Demark’s 1-0 victory over Peru in their World Cup Group C opener.The RB Leipzig forward was deemed to have tripped Christian Cueva in the box when referee Bakary Gassama consulted VAR, but the Peru midfielder skied his spot-kick and left the field in tears at the end of a tense opening period.Denmark settled into the game after the interval and the talismanic Christian Eriksen provided Poulsen with a chance to turn his evening around in the 59th minute, and the 24-year-old made no mistake. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move Paolo Guerrero came on from the bench following a successful appeal to suspend his 14-month drug ban cleared him to feature, but he could not turn the game in Peru’s favour.Kasper Schmeichel denied Jefferson Farfan brilliantly with six minutes to go as Ricardo Gareca’s men gave a good account of themselves in their first World Cup match for 36 years, entertaining the hordes of South American fans who packed the Mordovia Arena.France await Peru next, while Denmark will go into their game against Australia in confident mood after collecting three points.THE MAN. #ForDanmark #WorldCup #PERDEN — Fodboldlandsholdene (@dbulandshold) June 16, 2018 Orlando City’s Yoshimar Yotun lashed the ball into Schmeichel’s midriff from 25 yards as Peru made a positive, energetic start to the game and Edison Flores lifted a powerful shot over the crossbar from just outside the box.Andre Carrillo surged towards the Denmark box in the 13th minute and cut inside to curl a low drive towards the bottom-left corner, only for Schmeichel to pull off a diving save.Denmark began to dominate possession but it was not until the 27th minute that they attempted a shot on goal, Thomas Delaney launching the ball over.Peru promptly countered when Carrillo’s weighted pass put Farfan through on goal and Simon Kjaer had to rush across to dispossess the striker.Denmark midfielder William Kvist was taken off on a stretcher after a sustaining a blow to the ribs in a challenge with Farfan, and disaster almost struck for Age Hareide’s men when Cueva was brought down in the penalty area by Poulsen.The referee pointed to the spot upon reviewing video footage and Cueva blazed over, much to the dismay of Peru’s sizable travelling support.Denmark looked more assured after the restart and pushed forward in search of a breakthrough. It arrived just before the hour mark when Eriksen ran through the middle and fed Poulsen, who slotted the ball low to the left of Peru goalkeeper Pedro Gallese.Peru piled forward and Flores drew a fine, one-handed save from Schmeichel, before the winger was replaced by Peru’s all-time leading goal-scorer Guerrero in the 62nd minute.The veteran forward quickly tested Schmeichel, heading directly at the keeper from close range before trying an audacious backheel from the edge of the six-yard box that trickled past the post.Schmeichel then made a brilliant stop with his feet from a late Farfan thunderbolt as Denmark clung on for a hard-fought victory.#DEN win!The unbeaten start for the European teams at the #WorldCup continues! #RUS W #POR D #ESP D #FRA W #ISL D #DEN W — FIFA World Cup (@FIFAWorldCup) June 16, 2018 Key Opta stats:- Denmark have won four of their five opening games at World Cup tournaments, losing only against the Netherlands in 2010.- Peru are winless in their last seven World Cup games (W0 D2 L5).- Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has kept a clean sheet in his last five appearances for Denmark. He’s gone 534 minutes without conceding at international level, with his last goal shipped coming via the Republic of Ireland’s Shane Duffy in November.- Peru had 17 shots in this game, the most by a team without scoring so far in the 2018 World Cup.- Christian Eriksen has scored (12) or assisted (5) 17 goals in his last 14 appearances for Denmark.  read morelast_img read more

$80-Million Initiative to Help Registered Coffee Farmers

first_img The Minister said the Government will be taking a multipronged approach to improving the industry, including market diversification, increased productivity and production of the Blue Mountain, High Mountain and lowland coffee varieties. Speaking at a press conference on October 3 at the Ministry in Kingston to provide an update on the coffee industry, Portfolio Minister, Hon. Karl Samuda, said the initiative “will commence almost immediately”. Registered coffee farmers are to benefit from an $80-million initiative that is expected to improve and increase their yields over time. Story Highlights Registered coffee farmers are to benefit from an $80-million initiative that is expected to improve and increase their yields over time.The project, which falls under the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries’ Productivity Incentive Programme, will focus on training; the purchase of inputs, such as fertilisers and fungicides, and tools.Speaking at a press conference on October 3 at the Ministry in Kingston to provide an update on the coffee industry, Portfolio Minister, Hon. Karl Samuda, said the initiative “will commence almost immediately”.He informed that the Coffee Industry Board will be responsible for disbursing the supplies. “They have all the farmers registered, so it will commence almost immediately, because they need it (the assistance) immediately,” he said.Mr. Samuda explained that the move is expected to increase the productivity level of coffee from the current 20 boxes per acre to 80 boxes per acre.He said the Government is committed to supporting a vibrant coffee industry, both for export and to supply the domestic market.On prices in the industry, he reminded farmers that the Government does not set coffee prices, adding that the prices are usually market-driven and determined by supply and demand.Farmers are now being paid $6,000 per box as compared to the $10,000 per box they received last year.He pointed out that the decline has resulted from a decrease in prices from the main buyer of the Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee, Japan.Mr. Samuda further noted that the Japanese have also invested in improved storage systems, allowing them to better preserve and store the Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee for longer periods.The Minister said the Government will be taking a multipronged approach to improving the industry, including market diversification, increased productivity and production of the Blue Mountain, High Mountain and lowland coffee varieties.He said collaboration among the farmers, processors and exporters will redound to the benefit of the industry and the country.Members of Parliament from three of the island’s coffee-producing areas were in attendance and welcomed the move. They are Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, and Member of Parliament for West Portland, Hon. Darly Vaz; Member of Parliament for East Rural St. Andrew, the Most Hon. Juliet Holness and Member of Parliament for West Rural St. Andrew, Juliet Cuthbert-Flynn.For his part, Managing Director, Newport Fersan Jamaica Limited, Dennis Valdez, said his fertiliser-manufacturing company stands ready to improve and maximise productivity within the sector.He said a product dubbed ‘coffeeliser’ has been designed specifically for the sector.“We will be giving a five per cent discount on the price, and in addition to that, we will give 1,000 bags for the whole sector,” he said.Representing the Jamaica Coffee Growers Association, Jennifer Housen, expressed gratitude for the initiative, adding that the farmers stand to benefit.Coffee production moved from 201,000 boxes last year to some 230,000 this year.last_img read more
