For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Hardik Pandya’s woes has increased following all the backlash which he has received from social media following his ‘outrageous’ remarks on the show Koffee With Karan hosted by popular film director Karan Johar. The BCCI have officially suspended both Pandya and Rahul and have asked the duo to return home from the series against Australia. This has thrown their participation even in the tour of New Zealand in doubt where India will play five ODIs and three T20Is. The move comes after Committee of Administrators member Diana Edulji said that the duo should be suspended until further course of action is taken. The former India women’s cricket player had initially suggested a two-match suspension for the duo but referred the matter to the legal cell after CoA chief Vinod Rai agreed with her and recommended the same.The move was taken by BCCI legal team refused to declare their comments on women in the chat show Koffee With Karan a violation of the code of conduct. “We feel that present matter doesn’t fall under the ambit of Code of Conduct and procedure of Code of Conduct can’t be invoked in present circumstances,” the firm stated. The firm said the behaviour in question was neither a criticism of any match or against a player or support staff or match official. A senior BCCI official said this was not a code of conduct but it was about bringing an organisation to disrepute. The official cited the example of Steve Smith, who was only banned for one Test in the ICC Code of Conduct situation but was banned for one year by Cricket Australia.Read More | Don’t stand by comments made by Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul: Virat KohliVirat Kohli also distanced himself from the controversy, stating, “From the Indian cricket team point of view, any inappropriate comments that are made in that scenario are something that we definitely don’t support. We definitely as the Indian cricket team do not support views like that and that has been communicated (to the two players). I can definitely say that as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers we definitely don’t align with those views and those are purely individual views,” Kohli said.Pandya’s remarks were slammed as ‘misogynistic’, ‘racist’ by many Twitter users and the Board of Control for Cricket in India also jumped him, issuing a showcause notice to the all-rounder along with KL Rahul, the other cricketer present on the show. Pandya had taken to Twitter to apologise for his remarks and apparently, he has also expressed ‘regret’ over the comments when he responded to the showcause notice. The all-rounder has said the mistake will not be repeated in the future.

I would like to assure you that there was no malice or any sort of ill-intent on my part to offend anyone or portray any section of the society in bad light. I made these statements in the flow of the show and had not comprehended the extent to which my statements would be found offensive.”The situation came into light with this one conversation when Johar was asking questions about not asking women’s name in a night club and what do men talk about. To this, Pandya replied, “I like to watch and observe how they (women) move. I’m little from the black side so I need to see how they move.” Pandya also boasted about how he casually discussed his sex life with his parents. “When I lost my virginity, I came home and said, ‘Main karke aya hai aaj (I had sex today)’. At a party my parents asked me ‘acha tera wala (women) kaun sa hai [who is your interest here?] so I said yeh, yeh, yeh (pointing out women)’ and they were like ‘waah proud of you beta’,” Pandya replied with laughter. read more
After a video saluting healthcare workers, the rules for Sunday’s race were laid out. NASCAR used graphics to present virtual explanations for the racing procedures and the images included simulated fans in the stands. There are no fans permitted to attend a NASCAR race through at least June 21.At least one vehicle attempted to enter the property but was turned away at the only open gate outside the speedway.___1 p.m.Kevin Nobles wasn’t going to miss a race at Darlington Raceway. It didn’t matter that he couldn’t get near the track. 2:30 p.m.South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster gave a brief welcome over video to NASCAR in a virtual version of the traditional pre-race driver meeting.The meeting was streamed on NASCAR.com, and McMasters thanked the stock car series for coming to Darlington for its restart.McMasters said he was disappointed not to be at the track but vowed to be at Darlington’s first race with fans.“I love ‘The Lady in Black,’” McMasters said. “Our drivers, race teams and officials have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to get back to the race track and we want to assure you that we have taken the return to racing very seriously,” Phelps wrote.NASCAR chose Darlington, the oldest speedway on the Cup circuit, as the safest place to restart the season after eight events were postponed and the series sat idle for 10 weeks amid the global coronavirus pandemic. NASCAR was facing a financial collapse if live races didn’t resume on national television. So the sanctioning body had its health plan approved in South Carolina and North Carolina and released an aggressive schedule that included 20 races across seven Southern states between now and June 21. The first event is called the “The Real Heroes 400” and is dedicated to health care workers fighting COVID-19. Health care workers will give the command to start the engines.Darlington is hosting three events over four days. Roughly 900 essential people have been approved to be inside the gates. Seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson posted a photo of all the things he had to do himself at Darlington.“One of the perks of making it to the big time is showing up to the car with everything ready,” Johnson posted on Twitter. “Times R different right now & some of the responsibilities R mine again. Hopefully the drink bag won’t leak, visor doesn’t fall off, cool shirt is primed correctly & so on. #NascarIsBack”Brad Keselowski, the 2012 champ, also took to Twitter to show his new normal, a pre-race lunch he had to make for himself. It included a few raviolis, two hard-boiled eggs and a roll. He asked if water boiled differently in South Carolina. “Help me, guys. I’m lost,” Keselowski said. “Let’s go racing.”___ NASCAR is back! The Real Heroes 400 is underway at Darlington Raceway, without fans and with masks and social-distancing mandates all around.The new protocols should matter little to the 40 guys who took the green flag for the first live NASCAR race in 10 weeks.Drivers, crews and officials wore face masks during pre-race ceremonies, which were performed remotely. The Fox Sports booth, featuring Mike Joy and four-time champion Jeff Gordon, also was being broadcast remotely from Charlotte, North Carolina.

They typically have a staff that manages their schedules, prepares their beverages for the race and other important details. Nobles was part of a five-person group setting up a tailgate at an RV park outside the venue known as the the track “Too Tough To Tame.”Nobles, 56, from Aynor and on his way to Myrtle Beach, says he wanted to be close enough “to hear the engines and smell the gas fumes.”Nobles was excited that races were going live and believes it could be a big lift for fans following a 10-week hiatus amid the global coronavirus pandemic. William Coats, another member of the group, said the fellowship they’ll share Sunday is important.___ Associated Press 12:30 p.m.Darlington Raceway President Kerry Tharp says he’s amazed at how quickly every part of NASCAR came together to bring back the sport.NASCAR’s top Cup series returns to the track later Sunday after 10 weeks off because of the coronavirus pandemic.Tharp was visiting the Raceway Grill outside Turn 2, where team owners were setting up for a watch party.

Though the University of Wisconsin’s 2020 fall football season was canceled, it’s still fun to predict what would’ve happened if the Badgers’ “conference only” schedule went on without any hiccups. In an Aug. 6 article, fellow sportswriter Charlie Dern broke down Wisconsin’s first four games. Going off of Dern’s article, The Badger Herald took a look at Wisconsin’s final six games of the 2020 regular season.Saturday, Oct. 3 at MarylandThe year 2019 was a struggle for the Terrapins and first-year head coach Mike Locksley. During the first two weeks of the season, the Terrapins made some noise with wins over Howard and then No. 21 Syracuse. Over those two games, Maryland outscored their opponents 142-20. The Terps soon received national attention by climbing to No. 21 in the national rankings, but shortly after, their season crumbled. Quarterback Josh Jackson struggled through the air and only completed a dismal 47.3% of his passes during the regular season. Jackson’s play warranted questions about who would be the starter in 2020. Between Jackson, redshirt freshman Lance LeGendre and sophomore transfer Taulia Tagovailoa, there was a quarterback competition in College Park. With so much uncertainty surrounding the quarterback position and including the fact that the Terps lost star running back Javon Leake to the NFL, it’s likely Wisconsin will cruise through this matchup without any trouble. Wisconsin 5-0Football: Previewing Wisconsin’s first four games in conference-only seasonThe Big Ten announced in early July that if the college football season were to be played this season, the Read…Saturday, Oct. 10 vs. Purdue In this week’s matchup, the Badgers take on the Boilermakers before heading into their bye week. Wisconsin has won 14 straight against Purdue, with their last loss being on Ben Jones’ game-winning field goal at Camp Randall in 2003. In 2019, the Boilers limped to a 4-8 record and suffered an embarrassing 45–24 loss in their Nov. 23 matchup with the Badgers. Last year the Boilers struggled defensively, ranking second to last in the Big Ten in yards per game (436.3) while also giving up an alarming 192.5 yards on the ground. These statistics don’t bode well for the Boilers’ chances in Madison since year-after-year the Badgers model their offense on being a ground-and-pound football team. I see running backs Nakia Watson, Garrett Groshek and Jalen Berger having a field day. With no answer for the Badgers’ physicality, Wisconsin continues their undefeated season. Wisconsin 6-0As uncertainty surrounds college football, Big Ten postponses fall sports seasonAfter a rollercoaster 24-hour period, the Big Ten Conference has decided to move the 2019-20 fall sports season to next Read…Saturday, Oct. 24 vs. IllinoisBefore Wisconsin’s 2019 matchup against the Illini, the Badgers were clicking on all cylinders. Wisconsin was ranked No. 6 in the country and had hopes of appearing in their first-ever College Football Playoff, but after a shocking 24–23 road loss, those chances soon vanished. The Illini have talent and were looking forward to building off a 2019 breakthrough season — a season where Illinois made their first bowl appearance since 2014. Quarterback Brandon Peters is proven and threw for 18 touchdowns with only eight interceptions. Though Illinois is set at the quarterback position, it will be difficult to replace running backs Reggie Corbin and Dre Brown. Last season, the duo rushed for a combined 1337 yards and 12 touchdowns. Without a potent running attack, Wisconsin’s defense can neutralize Peters through the air. Unlike 2019, the Badgers don’t look past Illinois and take care of business. Wisconsin 7-0Saturday, Oct. 31 at MichiganWisconsin enters this Halloween showdown in Ann Arbor with a lot on the line. The Badgers are undefeated with hopes of contending for a national championship. Michigan has a lot of depth offensively. The Wolverines bring back Ronnie Bell, the team’s leading pass catcher, and Nico Collins, who led the team in touchdown receptions last season. Sophomore running back Zach Charbonnet is a rusher that invites contact. In his first year, Charbonnet bulldozed his way to 726 yards and found the endzone 11 times. The defense is also stout and only gave up 20.7 points per game in 2019. I think this game will be a difficult test for the Badgers. Though Wisconsin has the luxury of not playing in front of 110,000 plus boisterous fans at the Big House, Jim Harbaugh and company control the clock offensively and end Wisconsin’s perfect season. Wisconsin 7-1Saturday, Nov. 14 at Iowa The schedule doesn’t get any easier after a road test against the Wolverines, as Wisconsin travels to Iowa City for a battle against the Hawkeyes. One priority for Iowa is replacing seasoned quarterback Nate Stanley. In three years as a starter, Stanley threw for 68 touchdowns, which is second-best in school history. Stanley’s replacement is sophomore Spencer Petras. Petras is a promising passer and in his senior year of high school at Martin Catholic High School, he threw for an astounding 50 touchdowns and 4,157 yards. Though Petras has talent, Wisconsin’s Defensive Coordinator Jim Leonhard’s gameplan will give the young quarterback fits. Following a disappointing loss, the Badgers bounce back and win their fifth straight against Iowa. Wisconsin 8-1Football: Breaking down Wisconsin’s quarterback competitionAfter leading his team to a Rose Bowl appearance and finishing ninth in the NCAA in quarterback rating, you would Read…Saturday, Nov. 21 vs. Rutgers The Badgers wrap their season up against Rutgers in a game that could send them to their second consecutive Big Ten Championship game. This shouldn’t be too difficult of a matchup for Wisconsin, as the Scarlet Knights failed to win a conference game for the second consecutive season in 2019. Jack Coan has a field day in his final game at Camp Randall as he leads the Badgers to the Big Ten title game. Wisconsin 9-1Though it looks like Wisconsin won’t be playing football until the spring at the earliest, it’s still fun to predict what would’ve happened if the Big Ten decided to keep their conference only schedule layout. Though there’s still a possibility of the Badgers playing in the spring, Saturdays in Madison this fall will be quiet without the Badgers suiting up every week. read more

Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“Um, I agree with LeBron,” he said, with a laugh.Neither Walton nor James was in much of a reflective mood when it came to last season, which resulted in the overhaul of the Lakers’ roster and the dismissal of Walton. But both tried to make the best of what was often an awkward partnership, with no shortage of tension fueled by losing games, injuries and trade rumors.At one point, when a reporter asked what the differences were between the current, Frank Vogel-led coaching staff and Walton’s, James frowned: “I feel like that’s kind of a trick question.”Walton declined to talk much about his three-year tenure in Los Angeles, saying at his pregame availability that he was focused on trying to coach his Kings team to win. Sacramento got out to a disappointing 0-5 start before going 4-1 in its next stretch leading into Friday’s game.When asked what he learned from his Lakers days, Walton demurred. Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs LOS ANGELES — Perhaps the greatest public vote of confidence LeBron James ever gave Luke Walton came on Friday morning, long after Walton’s last day as his coach.James, reflecting on the 37-45 record last season that bumped him from the playoffs for the first time since 2005, didn’t lay it at Walton’s feet.“We were just behind the eight ball,” James said. “But throughout it all, we just tried to remain positive, even throughout with the young guys, with the older guys and whatever the case may be. So, I think he did as great of a job as you could do under the circumstances.”Hours before tip-off, as Walton was preparing his Sacramento Kings to take on the Lakers, he smiled when James’ words were repeated back to him. Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed “We can go into that forever,” he said. “I’ve learned from my coaching there, and I try to use that to be a better coach now. But right now it is all on this game tonight and the continued progress of trying to build off the little bit of success that we’ve had recently.”Related Articles Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Walton did allow that coming back to Staples Center, where he both played and coached, was “special” for him. And while he didn’t win a lot of games with a 98-148 record, he left with a lot of relationships in L.A.Kyle Kuzma was coming out of the Lakers’ locker room to warm up as Walton walked through the back tunnel on Friday, and stopped to embrace his former coach. Walton said he still has fondness for the players he led during his tenure, even though many of them no longer play for the Lakers, either.“I like watching those other guys play down in New Orleans,” he said. “Part of coaching is you build relationships with other players. And I enjoy watching the guys that are still here.”Walton also had some praise for James, who is leading the NBA in assists during the team’s hot start.“He’s LeBron, he’s one of the greatest players of all time, if not the greatest,” he said. “So I’m sure last year getting hurt, not making the playoffs, I mean, he’s going right now. And this team kind of follows that lead. They’re playing incredibly well, their defense and offense starts with him. He looks really good.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error read more
CLEAR LAKE — A Grammy-award-winning rock-a-billy star is the headliner at the annual “Winter Dance Party” — the event that celebrates the lives of three rock and roll performers who perished in a plane crash near Clear Lake over 60 years ago. Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives will perform February 1st at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake. Laurie Lietz, executive director of the Surf Ballroom and Museum, says it becomes a little harder each year to set the entertainment lineup for the three-day event. “The traditional artists from the ’50s are in many cases not performing anymore,” she says. “We found that to be the case, specifically, when we were looking to do something a little more rock-a-billy centric as we did this year.” The Kingsmen will open the 2020 Winter Dance Party on January 30th. The band is known for the song “Louie, Louie” and has one remaining member who played with the ensemble in the 1960s. Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, J-P “The Big Bopper” Richardson performed at the Surf in February of 1959 and died a few hours later when their plane crashed in a cornfield. read more
