Keble PemBroken

first_imgBefore the Blues game against Oxfordshire on Friday evening, it was the turn of the colleges to try 20/20 cricket as last year’s cuppers winners Pembroke defeated Keble by 7 wickets. Coloured clothing and music may have been the order of the day but Pembroke’s victory was largely thanks to a disciplined bowling and fielding performance. Having won the toss and elected to field Pembroke skipper Paul Ramsay led the way making a breakthrough with his third ball removing Booth for a single. When Chris Stearn nicked his next ball to Jonathon Fennell at slip, Keble were reeling at 3-2. They took time to recover with captain Rafe Roylands (23) and Ross Bland (14) putting on 31, but were unable to score quickly. Ramsay, who finished with figures of 4-1-10- 2, was ably supported by offspinner Adam Hunter (4-1-6-2). A rally from Stuart Drury (29) and Alan Bannister (22) boosted the Keble score to a competitive 116 with 31 runs coming from the last two overs. Keble required early wickets to put pressure on the Pembroke but had to wait until the eighth over when Dan Fox was caught superbly at backward point by Booth off the bowling of Stearn for 13. Any hope of a Keble fightback faded with Laurence Parker-Brown (39) and Nick Warrillow (22) adding 44 runs for the second wicket in just 6 overs effectively ended any Keble resistance. Warrilow fell in the 14th over, attempting to repeat a huge six off Roylands getting stumped by Tim Oliver in the process, the same bowler finding the edge to remove Parker-Brown two overs later. Fennell and Tom Bullock required just 3 overs to score the remaining 23 runs, with Fennell squrting the winning run to third man with on over to spare.ARCHIVE: 6th week TT 2004last_img read more

NFL teams huddling up to devise plans for social change

first_imgLast Updated: 30th August, 2020 07:54 IST NFL Teams Huddling Up To Devise Plans For Social Change Sam Darnold watched as several of his New York Jets teammates took turns speaking, many of whom got emotional. And, the quarterback did what he thought was his best play at that moment. He listened COMMENT SUBSCRIBE TO US Written By FOLLOW US LIVE TVcenter_img WATCH US LIVE Associated Press Television News First Published: 30th August, 2020 07:54 IST Sam Darnold watched as several of his New York Jets teammates took turns speaking, many of whom got emotional. And, the quarterback did what he thought was his best play at that moment. He listened.“I took the time to understand it is different growing up Black in America,” Darnold said Saturday. “And I now understand that better.”Darnold recalled how his parents always harped on him returning home before dark in Southern California so he didn’t get lost. He heard another not-so-sugarcoated side of that same curfew rule from his teammates.“They were told, ‘Hey, make sure you’re home before dark or else something bad can happen,’” Darnold said. “That’s a different conversation than what my parents had with me.”The Jets were one of nine NFL teams that canceled practice Thursday in wake of the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man, in Wisconsin last Sunday. Instead of taking the field, the entire team spent more than four hours talking about racial injustice and social issues.The conversations — which included team president and CEO Christopher Johnson, general manager Joe Douglas and coach Adam Gase — were led by players detailing their experiences with racism, inequality and police brutality. They continued their discussions Friday, an off day, to begin devising plans to effect change among each other and in the community.“One of the guys in the room was like, ‘In order for us to help, we have to realize that this is a snowball and not an avalanche,’” said offensive lineman Jonotthan Harrison, who is Black. “We can’t just jump off the deep end and be like, attack this and do this and do this. No, we have to be very methodical and we have to approach it the right way, the safest way.”Many teams around the league have had similar conversations — with topics ranging from equal rights to making sure players are registered to vote — in the days since Blake, 29, was left paralyzed after being shot in the back by a police officer.The Seattle Seahawks canceled their scheduled practice Saturday after a lengthy team meeting. Coach Pete Carroll spoke to reporters later in the day for more than 14 minutes, without taking questions.“Our players are screaming at us: ‘Can you feel me? Can you see me? Can you hear me?’” said Carroll, who is white. “They just want to be respected. They just want to be accepted. Just like all of our white children and families and want to be. It’s no different because we’re all the same.“And there’s a lot of people that don’t see it that way, but there’s a lot of people that do.”Blake’s shooting was captured on cellphone video and ignited new protests in the U.S. three months after the death of George Floyd under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer touched off a nationwide reckoning over racial injustice — and discussions among NFL players and staffs about equality.“A lot of our players, a lot of our Black players, are hurting from the standpoint of this is close to home for many of them,” said Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson, who is white. “So for me, it’s about understanding, it’s about learning, it’s about gaining knowledge, and then being able to support our guys.”Bengals players, coaches, ownership and staff marched together in Cincinnati from Paul Brown Stadium to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center on Saturday.“Together, as a unified front, we must identify, address and ultimately end those practices and policies that would deny liberty and justice to all, regardless of race, religion, or creed,” the Bengals said in a statement. “It is time for us all to take a stand! It is each of our responsibility to effect change in our communities, not only for us but for those yet to come.“We cannot turn a blind eye to the racism still experienced in this country.”On Friday night at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin — flanked by team president Art Rooney II and general manager Kevin Colbert — briefly spoke on social unrest and prejudice while players locked arms behind him.Tomlin, one of three Black NFL head coaches, is the third-longest tenured coach in the league. Players and staff followed Tomlin’s speech by kneeling in prayer around the 50-yard line.“We decided to come together, lock arms and make a stand to show compassion,” linebacker Vince Williams said Saturday. “Even though we’re professional athletes, we’re still sympathetic to everything going on.”Darnold said he and his Jets teammates have not talked about sitting out any games as a form of protest, something that has happened the past several days in other sports such as the NBA, WNBA, NHL, MLS and Major League Baseball.“We have to continue playing because, quite frankly, this is the reason we have a platform, is because we play football and we are in the NFL,” Darnold said. “And that was a huge point to all the guys was, we have to continue playing, we have to continue to push our message across and get our points across to everyone because if we stop playing then that platform can be taken away from us.”Green Bay Packers center Corey Linsley, who is white, said it was eye-opening to listen to some of his teammates’ experiences — particularly offensive lineman Billy Turner and linebacker Christian Kirksey, both of whom are Black.“To hear their stories and especially know the place that they’re coming from, it’s impactful, man,” Linsley said Saturday. “It hits you different, for sure. It’s made an impact on me.”It’s made an impact on a number of guys in this locker room in the way that we view the world, the way that we view our criminal justice system, the way that we view society in general.”Image credits: AP last_img read more
