11 July 2012 His 555 test dismissals is a massive 139 more than the number two man on the list, Adam Gilchrist. Another way to put his achievement into perspective is that his total of 555 is more than double the number of dismissals made by the man in fifth place all time, Jeff Dujon, who tallied 270 in his career. Boucher was standing up to leg-spinner Imran Tahir when Tahir bowled Germaal Hussein with a googly. In a freak accident, a bail flew off the stumps and hit Boucher in the left eye. He immediately fell to the ground and was surrounded by his team-mates, all thoughts of celebrating the wicket forgotten. “We’re trying to respect what he’s given us and hopefully play with him in our hearts and minds through the next few years. ‘Saddened’South African captain Graeme Smith, who read the statement on behalf of Boucher, said in response: “Bouch, we have walked a long road together, and we are saddened to part under these circumstances. StatementHe released a statement, which read: “It is with sadness, and in some pain, that I make this announcement. Due to the severity of my eye injury, I will not be able to play International cricket again. “I don’t think you can replace Mark Boucher. That’s not what we’re trying to do,” Graeme Smith told ESPN Cricinfo. “I have a number of thank yous to make to people who have made significant contributions during my International career, which I will do in due course. He is number two all-time on the lists of dismissals in one-day international cricket, with 424 to his name. “He’s created a legacy for a lot of us to be a part of and to look up to. We need to respect what he’s done for our country and be proud of that.” “You leave us today with sad hearts, but also with a deep gratitude for your contributions to our team, and to us as people. A two-and-a-half hour surgery followed for the veteran Protea, during which it was established that the damage was severe. Boucher had said he wished to retire after the England series, but after being forced out of the tour he announced his retirement. InfluenceNumbers, however, vastly underplay the role and influence Boucher had on the Proteas. He was renowned for his tough-as-teak, never-say-die temperament and for being a leader in the South African team. He earned the respect of his team-mates and South Africa’s opposition. “For now, I would like to thank the huge number of people, many of whom are strangers, for their heartfelt support during the past 24 hours. I am deeply touched by all the well wishes. I wish the team well in the UK, as I head home and onto a road of uncertain recovery.” He went on to play in 147 test matches, which at the time of his retirement was seventh on the all-time list, and just five games less than the South African record holder, Jacques Kallis, his closest friend. He also took part in 295 one-day internationals and 25 Twenty20 internationals. He also bowled eight balls in test cricket and took a wicket, dismissing Dwayne Bravo for 107 in the drawn fourth test against the West Indies at the Antigua Recreation Ground. “You have been more than a performer, you have been a motivator, an inspirer, an energizer … and a good friend to many,” Smith said. “For the 14 years of your International career, you have been a true Proteas’ warrior, a patriotic South African, a fighter who asks nothing and gives everything. You have been a 100 percenter for this team. As a batsmen, he scored 5 515 runs in tests, including five centuries and 35 fifties. “I had prepared for this UK tour as well, if not better than I have prepared for any tour in my career,” Boucher’s statement read. “I had never anticipated announcing my retirement now, but circumstances have dictated differently. “The fighting spirit you brought to the team remains with us. We wish you a good as possible recovery from your injury. As we bid you a farewell as an international cricketer and wish you well for your future, we keep you as a friend and respected Proteas’ warrior.” He was responsible for exactly 1 000 dismissals in those games, with all but two of them being achieved as wicketkeeper. He added a catch as a fielder and claimed a wicket as a bowler. International careerMark Boucher’s international career began in October 1997 in the second test against Pakistan, when current Proteas’ coach Gary Kirsten was still opening the batting for South Africa. South Africa’s record-setting wicketkeeper Mark Boucher announced his retirement from international cricket on Tuesday after suffering a career-ending eye injury in the opening match of the Proteas’ tour of England against Somerset.

Creating a Premiere Pro Swipe TransitionYour first step is to find the two shots you want to transition with one another. Layer them into your timeline.Now get your transition element. In this example, I use a post. Take a screen cap of the frame and place it into your timeline, above and between your two shots.Now mask your transitioning layer.From here, we animate the post’s position. Remember if your footage moves in one direction your animation moves in the opposite. The camera pans left to right, so we animate right to left.Keyframe and crop your footage to track with the animation.Finally, apply a Gaussian blur and darken your animated image to better integrate it with your footage.Creating a Premiere Pro Vehicle Swipe TransitionNow, let’s move over to our car animation. Luckily, it follows similar steps. Find the two shots you want to transition. Layer the first shot above the second by about ten frames.Next, grab an image of a car, layer it above the two other shots, and mask it.Scale and position your car image so that it fills the screen. Make sure the wheels are off-camera.Move your image’s position to one side of the frame. Then click your keyframe marker. Move up ten frames and slide the image to the opposite side.The next step is to apply a crop effect to the shot bellow your animation. Create a keyframe and track the moving animation with your crop. This effect will reveal the shot below your cropped video. Improve your swipe transitions by animating a still image in Adobe Premiere Pro.Top image via Shutterstock.When it comes to video transitions, I’m always trying to step up my game. To me, a good transition cuts a scene seamlessly without making the audience feel like something was there in the first place. In today’s tutorial, I show you how to create a seamless swipe transition by animating still images. I also demonstrate how to create the famous car swipe transition common in Edgar Wright‘s films. Do you know other tips for using animated stills in video editing transitions? Let us know in the comments.

Ahead of the big series the visitors took on Essex in a 3-day practice match.The one off practice game left India with lots to ponder after the top order failing to live up to their expectations and spinners failing to deliver. One of the few positives India took away from the match was that 5 of their batsmen being able to score half centuries.From the 5 who scored 50s, the Indian captain scored 68 off 93 balls. The moment he notched up his 50, Essex cricket club took to twitter to post a tweet. However, their tweet, “This guy’s not bad at cricket… 50 up for @imVkohli off 67 balls!”, was not received well by the Indian fans.This guy’s not bad at cricket… 50 up for @imVkohli off 67 balls! 👌#ESSvIND pic.twitter.com/CS6ObCNweT— Essex Cricket (@EssexCricket) July 25, 2018 Think twice before u talk of a legend like Kohli..

14 Best Outdoor Stores in the United States Long Hair for Men: Tips for Growing and Maintaining Your Style The Barbershop Renaissance and Men’s Grooming Revolution, According to Fellow Barber’s Sam Buffa Editors’ Recommendations In case you haven’t heard, barber shops are the new well, barber shops. Remember when your pops used to go to get a little off the top and see all his pals and talk gals and games?That whole era faded out with the roll out of Super Cuts and mall hair salons where men got lost in the froth of the wonderful world of women’s hair. It was almost embarrassing to go get your hair cut until recently. In the past eight years since F.S.C Barber opened in New York, barbers have been popping back up all around the country. These spots are reminiscent of the old skool days of mammoth barber chairs, records playing in the corner and beer offered while you wait. But what really makes a barber shop is of course the barber, and Shorty Maniace is the man who every other barber looks to as ‘The One.’ His slicked back hair, tats and dapper daily dress has inspired men around America.Born in Alaska and growing up Spokane, Shorty (who got his nick name from this song) moved to Seattle at a young age and began working at the hair salon of Jasper Paul, who would become his mentor. J.P. would let Shorty cut his friends’ hair and give them street style cuts. He was also developing sculpting and carving techniques with his friends’ hair and really perfecting his craft. But J.P. told Shorty that barbering was a dying craft and that he should go to beauty school. That was perfect because, as Shorty told us, “I was chasing a skirt and she was in beauty school.” Once he began cutting hair professionally he noticed how uncomfortable men were in the lady-like atmosphere of most hair salons. “Gay, straight, even lesbians were uncomfortable!” he laughed.Shorty then went on the hunt for a quality barber shop to work in and bounced around helping shops with their protocol. “Basically I was kind of like a Tabitha’s Salon Takeover but not so bitchy,” he explained. He was of course the star at F.S.C Barber for many years but now that he is back on the West Coast he decided to stop working for da man. He opened his own spot, J.P. Kempt, which opened just yesterday (and was named in honor of his mentor).We rang up Mr. Maniace to hear more about his personal style.Ever since I was a child I have been obsessed with hats. So I have always worn them. I like Brixton’s and Stetson’s. Kind of weird for a barber right? But they look best when you are dressed up so I like to say I stay in the old school range of things.I like all things from the 20s to the 50s. Ralph Lauren, RRL and their old brand, Rugby, are great for me. But the older I get the more comfortable I want to be.Levis are my staple for jeans. I like classic brands; I am kind of a purist about it. I really love the Made and Crafted line by Levis. Its the ‘Spare me a dime, brother’ kind of look.I wear a lot of sweaters that range from the rugby collegiate looks and some vintage too from Pendleton, Chatsworth and Filson.I always like a basic white or chambray shirt from Levis or J.Crew and RRL.I go to Florsheim for my shoes.Outerwear is from Levis or Filson Oil Tin Cloth. If I dress up it’s a vintage overcoat probably from London Fog.All my glasses are from Warby or Moscot.My watch is a Croton.The only ring I wear is my wedding band.

BANCROFT, Ont. – An Ontario church that saw the figures of Jesus and Mary swiped from its nativity scene will now celebrate Christmas with everyone accounted for.Provincial police say the figures were returned to the church in Bancroft, Ont., about 10 days after they initially disappeared.They say Jesus and Mary originally went missing from the front lawn of the church, where the nativity scene was set up in honour of the season.Police did not provide details on the return of the stolen figures.Const. Philippe Regamey says he suspects pranksters may have been behind the theft.He says neither the police nor the church wish to lay charges, but would still like to speak to anyone involved.“They don’t want any charges laid, of course, because it’s Christmas season,” he said. “It’s all about forgiveness and stuff.”
