Loading… The 55-year-old former central defender told the BBC the FA had a zero-tolerance attitude to racism and ministers should adopt the same policy. Reported incidents of racist abuse in English football rose by 43 percent in 2018-19 compared to the previous season, according to campaign group Kick It Out. “We in football are giving off a message about zero tolerance,” said Elliott, who is the FA’s inclusion advisory board chief. “The government has to be alongside.” Manchester City and England striker Raheem Sterling has been highly praised for speaking out on racism. Elliott said it was important that players received support, with potential benefits within football and society at large.Advertisement “There has to be a duty of care because the by-product of speaking out will be the positive impact and the positive behaviour in stadiums, which will then have a domino effect on societal behaviour,” said Elliott. “With the utmost respect, this is one area where there has to be a united front – we must be together.” The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, in a statement carried by the BBC, said it was committed to working with football authorities in tackling racism. “Racism or any form of discrimination has no place in football or society, and we must confront this vile behaviour,” the statement said.

Hyderabad: Former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin was on Friday elected President of the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA), life coming full circle for the man who was once indicted for match-fixing and banned for life from playing. The stylish batsman of yesteryears polled 173 votes while his opponent Prakash Chand Jain got 73 votes. The victory marks his entry into cricket administration. The 56-year-old, who has also served as the member of parliament from Moradabad in Uttar Pradesh, led India to a spate of Test series wins over England, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe at home in the 1990s. But the former batsman fell from grace after he was implicated in the 2000 match-fixing scandal that shook the core of Indian cricket. However, the Andhra High Court had ruled that the investigation against him was not conducted properly. Azharuddin, who appeared in 99 Tests and 334 ODIs, filed his nomination for the president’s post in the HCA last week.Arun Dhumal, younger brother of former BCCI president and current MoS (finance) Anurag Thakur was elected president of the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) unopposed, during its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Friday. Una district’s Sumit Sharma is the new secretary of HPCA as there was no opposition against the Dhumal-led panel.

However for that, he will have to relinquish his state body’s position.

Dhumal said that his primary aim would be to ensure that Thakur’s dream of setting up 70 cricket coaching centres across the state is realised. “Anurag ji’s dream was to have 70 centres across the state. We have already got clearance for 62 of them and 22 are already operational. Around 1200 kids are getting coaching,” he said.
SYDNEY, Australia (CMC) – When West Indies begin their bid for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 title on Saturday, vice-captain Anisa Mohammed says they will be seeking revenge on hosts Australia.Speaking ahead of her side’s opening match against Thailand in Perth, the 31-year-old spinner said the Caribbean women were working hard to one-up the Meg Lanning-led squad in the 10-team tournament.Mohammed – the highest T20I wicket-taker of all-time – helped Windies beat Australia to the title in 2016 at Eden Gardens; but the Caribbean women then lost out to the same opposition at the semi-final stage on home soil in 2018, with a 71-run defeat.“We’ve come to win this World Cup and take it back from Australia,” the Trinidadian said.“It would be nice to spoil the party. They spoiled ours, so it would be nice to return the favour.”A World Cup victory would not only be a team achievement, but a personal one for Mohammed.“The final in 2016 was a really special day. That was probably the biggest highlight of my career – winning a World Cup. It’s something I’d love to do again,” she said.“As a team, we know what it’s like to win and what it’s like to lose. Winning is definitely better, so we want to win this time.”Australia are one of the favourites of the tournament, but Mohammed believes West Indies have what it takes to rain on their parade.“Australia have been doing really well. They recently played in the tri-series and came out on top, but we’ve been working hard ourselves.“Australia are known as the top team in the world. All teams will be gunning to beat them,” she said.West Indies Women and Australia Women met in a bilateral series in September 2019, and the under-strength Caribbean side were beaten 3-nil and by margins of six, nine and nine wickets respectively.Experienced West Indies fast bowler Shakera Selman fanned the flames of the rivalry by revealing it’s only recently the two teams have started to build relationships.“We have some history with Australia,” said Selman. “Since the last series, I’ve noticed a lot of the girls have built some sort of friendship and some sort of camaraderie.”“They’ve beaten us a few times. They were hurting after we beat them in 2016 and they came back to beat us two years later. It would be a big game if we faced them in the semi-finals but we’ve got to take each one as it comes.”Australia Women will open the seventh season of the T20 World Cup 2020 on Friday with a contest against India Women at Sydney Showground.Following their first match against Thailand at the WACA in Perth, Western Australia, West Indies Women will play Pakistan Women on February 26 at Manuka Oval, Canberra; England Women on March 1; and South Africa Women on March 3. The latter two games will be played at Sydney Showground.The tournament will culminate on March 8 with the final match in Melbourne.
The Wisconsin women’s volleyball team will defend its home at the Field House for the second consecutive weekend with matchups against Michigan and Michigan State.The Badgers are hoping to extend their success after a weekend against tough opponents like Ohio State and Penn State. Despite getting off to a strong start and taking the first game, Wisconsin lost its third straight conference match to the Buckeyes 3-1 last Friday.However, the resilient squad was able to bounce back and not only take on the defending national champions, the Penn State Nittany Lions, to five sets, but come out on top. This was the Badger’s first five-set win of the season. The two teams traded sets all the way through the fourth. Then, Wisconsin went on a 7-1 run and never gave up the lead.Freshman setter Courtney Thomas and the rest of the Badgers are happy to have an extra confidence boost but still remain humble.“It was good for us, beating Penn State is awesome,” Thomas said. “It gives us another win that we needed but just beating them doesn’t give us other wins, so we have to come out strong this weekend.”The Badgers’ first opponent is Michigan. Wisconsin was successful against the Wolverines at their home gym in Ann Arbor earlier this season, beating the then No. 18 squad 3-1. The Badgers’ strong offense and blocking helped them upset their second ranked opponent, and with the help of Ellen Chapman’s 12 kills, the Badgers nearly doubled the Wolverine’s hitting percentage.Led in blocks by freshman Crystal Graff and Alexis Mitchell with six blocks apiece, Wisconsin out blocked Michigan 16-10.Head coach Pete Waite was pleased with his team’s consistency and composure last time around and hopes that Graff’s absence won’t affect that same rhythm his players maintained during the previous encounter with the Wolverines.“The biggest thing is staying tight as a team,” Waite said. “Each player has to do what they can to help their teammates out. When they do that, their chemistry starts building and building, and they really are a tight group and they play some really good ball.”The solid and consistent play will be key, especially when defending against Wolverine outside hitter Alex Hunt. Hunt, a senior, previously scored on 15 kills against the Badgers and has had double digit kills in 17 matches, shining even against top ranked opponents such as Nebraska, where the senior tallied 22 kills and 17 digs.Hunt receives the ball from freshman setter Lexi Dannemiller. Dannemiller is a three-time Big Ten Freshman of the Week and has recorded 10 double-doubles so far. The freshman distributed 45 assists in her last meeting with the Badgers and averages 11.63 per set. With Hunt and Dannemiller at their best, Waite expects a much different Michigan team this time around.“I think they were off their game a little bit,” Waite said. “I think we caused some of that, but they are also a very good team. As we watch them on tape, we can see that they are playing some good ball now. Alex Hunt is an All-American who almost scores at will, so we really need to pass well when she is serving and defend well when she is attacking.”Wisconsin will also see strong attacking from Michigan State on Saturday. Previously, the Badgers were defeated 3-1 by the Spartans at their home in East Lansing. Wisconsin fell behind early, losing the first two sets.Despite a 34-32 win in the third set, the Badgers couldn’t hang on during a 6-3 Spartan run in the fourth game to secure the match.Redshirt senior Jenilee Rathje leads the Spartans. The 5’11” outside hitter had a monstrous 26 kills against the Badgers and averages 4.36 kills per set. She is assisted by sophomore setter Kristen Kelsay who adds 6.32 assists per set.“The biggest thing for any team is serving tough and attacking in strong ways so that their setter can’t get to the ball so easily, and I think we have been doing a great job of that,” Waite said. “But Rathje is a good athlete. Some players are going to get their kills. Sometimes it’s a matter of limiting their teammates, and hopefully we will be able to do that.”Playing well defensively will be very important for the Badgers this weekend, especially going up against tough attackers like Hunt and Rathje. Thomas recognizes that defense may be the difference for Wisconsin.“Defense is a really big key,” Thomas said. “Obviously against Penn State we out-dug them so that was great. We can see that if we play really good defense we can run our offense pretty well and come out with a win.”

TEMPE, Ariz. >> A team of scouts converged on Tempe Diablo Stadium on Wednesday morning. Their star attraction was a day away from arriving, but there was plenty of scouting to be done.These were location scouts working on behalf of Major League Baseball, which is teaming with HBO on a publicity stunt never before attempted in baseball. Actor/comedian Will Ferrell will be pitching for the Dodgers, playing somewhere in the field for the Angels, and appearing in three other games (Mariners-A’s, Reds-Diamondbacks, Giants-White Sox) staggered throughout the day – one inning at each position, for nine different teams, in five different games. He’ll be using a helicopter to shuttle from one game to the next.Stranger than fiction? “It remains to be seen exactly how it’s going to work out but we’re going to do our part,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “I don’t think it’s going to be anything we won’t be able to handle.”Scioscia wasn’t sure where Ferrell would be playing for the Angels, or what inning.“He profiles as a relief pitcher,” Scioscia quipped. “He’s pretty big isn’t he?”Ferrell, a 6-foot-3 right-hander, will auction “game-used memorabilia” at MLB.com, with proceeds being donated to Cancer for College and Stand up to Cancer. Footage of the stunt will be integrated into an HBO special from Funny Or Die in partnership with the league.There’s some precedent for this. The Dodgers once invited Ferrell to read the starting lineup over the PA system prior to a 2013 game. Actor/comedian Billy Crystal batted for the New York Yankees in a Grapefruit League game in 2008. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “Spring training affords an appropriate setting where our game can serve as the backdrop for an event that will benefit organizations that fight cancer,” MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. “Will is a big fan of our game and many of us in baseball — among our clubs, and our millions of fans — are big fans of his. Major League Baseball is happy to take part in what will surely be a fun and memorable day for a great cause.”The star of “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” ‘’Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” and “Elf” will also umpire a portion of the Dodgers-Padres game at 6 p.m. in Peoria.Dodgers’ Urias stumblesEighteen-year-old pitcher Julio Urias has been a hot topic in Dodgers camp. He threw two scoreless innings in his spring debut against the Milwaukee Brewers last Friday, impressing teammates with his maturity on and off the field.Wednesday, Urias was dealt adversity in the form of three straight singles by the heart of the Chicago Cubs’ major league lineup: Anthony Rizzo, Starlin Castro and Miguel Montero. Urias was allowed to face Chris Coghlan with the bases loaded and none out, and induced a sacrifice fly that drove in a run. His final line: one-third of an inning, three hits, one earned run.“It looks like a bad outing on paper, but I look at it as a good outing because it’s something I can work on,” Urias said through an interpreter. “My confidence is absolutely there. I want to work on the slider, the changeup as well, locating pitches in the zone.”Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he removed Urias because he’d thrown 24 pitches in one inning. Urias threw another 15 pitches in the bullpen afterward.“He still is an 18-year-old in big league camp with a pretty good reputation,” Mattingly said. “He’s going to get guys ready to go. They’re going to want to get a piece of him.”Urias considered it a lesson learned.“I can’t rely on the fastball here,” Urias said. “You have to have your secondary pitches.” AlsoAngels left-hander C.J. Wilson tweaked his left knee during a fielding drill Monday and will have his next start delayed until the weekend. Rookie left-hander Sean Newcomb will start against the Cubs’ Jason Hammel instead. Wilson’s injury is not considered serious. … Angels closer Huston Street was still out sick one day after experiencing flu-like symptoms in the dugout. … Angels reliever Joe Smith is “three or four days” away from appearing in a game after experiencing stiffness in his leg, Scioscia said. … Right-hander Matt Shoemaker will start for the Angels on Friday. … Hyun-Jin Ryu will make his Cactus League debut for the Dodgers on Thursday night in Peoria against the Padres. James Shields is starting for the Padres. … Dodgers right-hander Brandon McCarthy will oppose the Reds’ Jason Marquis on Friday in Glendale, a previously scheduled 7 p.m. game.
SACRAMENTO — Brandon Ingram first learned that something was off when he saw Rajon Rondo by the plane to Sacramento. It didn’t look like he was getting on board.“I seen him walking from the plane – not walking toward the plane,” he said. “But I didn’t know what was going on until we got on the plane so I didn’t know what happened.”He and others in the Lakers organization later learned that Rondo had suffered a grade 3 sprain of his right ring finger, an injury he didn’t fully appreciate the severity of until the day after he helped lead the Lakers to a win over Golden State.That’s the kind of obscurity the Lakers have dealt with in the last week: Injuries with unclear timelines that threaten to derail the team’s 20-14 start. The most looming of all is the strained left groin of LeBron James, who has been described by team officials as “day-to-day” but has also been described as not rushing along his rehabilitation process. Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers The one player who seems to be making definite steps toward a return is JaVale McGee, who traveled with the team despite missing his sixth straight game after suffering from pneumonia. He participated in Thursday’s shootaround, but Walton acknowledged even that morning that he would “probably not” play before officially scratching him a few hours before tip-off.Related Articles Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersWhen asked if the Lakers were exercising extra caution with James’ groin injury – which generally can have a high probability of recurring – Coach Luke Walton said, “Absolutely.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.“It’s one of those things that we want to make sure he’s healthy before he gets back out there,” he said. “That can be an injury where if you do come back too early, you re-hurt, you re-injure it and then you’re out even longer. So we’re going to be very careful and cautious when he starts playing again.”It wasn’t a sentiment that gave hope that James (who leads the team in scoring, assists and rebounds) can return Friday against the Clippers, or even the next Sunday home game against the Kings. Even though James is well-known for his durability, the tone throughout the organization seemed geared toward exercising patience.The same is likely true for Rondo, who Walton said was undergoing medical evaluation in Los Angeles. Walton didn’t learn of the injury himself until Wednesday. While the Lakers said there would be a forthcoming public update on Rondo’s health Friday, Walton suggested at least preliminarily, the decision would be up to Rondo’s tolerance: The injury, it’s worth remembering, is in the same hand that he fractured in mid-November.“It all depends on how, how he can handle that pain,” he said. “So we’re kind of just taking it day-by-day right now to see where he wants to go with it, see how bad that hand is hurting. But he could be out for a while or he could be out for a couple days. It all just depends.” Still, his participation was encouraging, and Walton said McGee will resume his starting role when he returns to action.“This is the first time I’ve seen him on the court in a while,” he said. “So when he gets back on the court, we’ll probably play him for short little runs until he gets that conditioning and body back to where it was before.”Walton said beyond the decisions made by medical staffers, he generally gives veterans some latitude when it comes to their own rehabilitation. The main thing he wants to know about James is his mental state: how he’s faring with the rare case of being sidelined with an injury.Ingram said James was sending updates to teammates on a group chat, and no matter how long he’s out, he’s been encouraging toward those who can play.“Well, we talked to him just about his injury a little bit before he left,” Ingram said. “Just how he was going to take it day-to-day, how he’ll be back soon and just how we can be really good with or without him.” Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error

Powered by Firework Gareth Bale refused to hold Real Madrid’s crest before the game against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday. Before the beginning of the match, there was a photo session of the players in the starting lineup of the Los Blancos. Bale was standing in the middle of the whole group. Consequently, Raphael Varane gave the club crest to Bale.Advertisement However, the Welshman refused to hold the crest. After getting the crest from Raphael Varane, he immediately passed it to Daniel Carvajal. The crest should have been in the middle of the picture, but it was not present there. Needless to say, the picture seemed to be really awkward.Advertisement Gareth Bale’s future at Real Madrid was quite uncertain during the summer transfer window of 2019-20 season. The move to a Chinese Super League club was almost finalized for the speedy winger. However, the proposed transfer was cancelled at the last moment and Bale stayed at Real Madrid.Gareth Bale’s performances at the beginning of the season for the Los Blancos have been impressive. Though, it is being reported that Bale is not happy with the team management of Zinedine Zidane. The situation between Gareth Bale and Real Madrid’s management team is deteriorating every day and things could end in a bitter way.Advertisement ALSO READ:Watch: A brilliant rap constructed using only football player puns!
