ODIs need a Test Championship-like revamp, believes Shane Warne

first_imgBrisbane: Spin legend Shane Warne feels one day internationals (ODIs) are losing relevance far too often and there should be something done on the lines of ICC Test Championship to revive the 50-over format. In February, after India were blanked by hosts New Zealand 0-3 in the ODIs, India skipper Virat Kohli had said this format is not much relevant this year, referring to the T20 World Cup and the engrossing fight for World Test Championship.“I like the concept (Test Championship) and I wish there was something like this in ODIs too,” Warne said during an Instagram live.“Then ODIs have context leading up to the World Cup. Maybe points or something I don’t know. But there are too many meaningless ODIs,” said the legendary Australian leg-spinner, regarded as the best the game has ever seen.Warne also put his weight behind three-match ODI series and not five. “I think three matches are just fine in 50-over contests. Five is too much.”Warne also picked Mark Waugh ahead of Jonty Rhodes as the best all-round fielder in the game.“Mark Waugh was the greatest all-round fielder closely followed by Ricky Ponting. In ground fielding, I would say it’s between Punter (Ponting) and Jonty (Rhodes). They all were marvellous.”Warne also said he is spending time with family and playing online games during the lockdown period to fight the coronavirus pandemic.ODIs need a Test Championship-like revamp, believes WarneBrisbane, April 7: Spin legend Shane Warne feels one day internationals (ODIs) are losing relevance far too often and there should be something done on the lines of ICC Test Championship to revive the 50-over format.

JOHN, B.C. — Another prominent company operating in Northeastern BC has fallen victim to the economic downturn in the oil and gas industry.Calgary-based Terra Energy has announced its cost of operations exceeds gross revenues at current commodity pricing levels and the company’s lender has declined to provide further financial support.Therefore, it says since the company has no other means of financing available, it no longer has the financial capability to carry on its operations.- Advertisement -This week’s announcement follows one at the end of last week that Terra had undertaken a process of shutting-in all of its operated/licensed wells and facilities in order to secure and enhance the safety of its operations.Now, it says all of its operated licensed wells and facilities in B.C. and Alberta have been shut-in and that Terra has terminated certain officers of the company and all of its remaining non-executive employees.It adds directors have determined that Terra’s business is no longer viable and that they and officers of the company have resigned.Advertisement Terra also confirms it has notified the aforementioned lender, Canadian Western Bank and both the BC Oil and Gas Commission and the Alberta Energy Regulator, of its shut-in initiative.Meantime, while acknowledging this issue takes him outside the area of his association’s representative responsibility, Mark Salkeld of the Petroleum Services Association of Canada says the current economic problems facing petroleum producers like Terra Energy are very similar to those facing the service, supply and manufacturing sectors P-SAC does represent.That noted, he has reintroduced the Energy East pipeline back into this debate, with this message for its critics.last_img read more

Grange signs historic sports cooperation agreement with China

first_imgStory Highlights The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has described the sports cooperation agreement which she signed in the Chinese capital today (Friday) as “historic and extremely beneficial”.Minister Grange and the General Manager of China Sport International Company (the state-owned sports cooperation agency) Mr Lu Guoguang officially signed the agreement which will see more than 400 Jamaican athletes travelling to China for training over the next three years. Minister Grange said it was the first time that so many Jamaican athletes would benefit directly from a bilateral sports cooperation agreement. “Our athletes have natural abilities but need assistance and the Government of Jamaica can only do so much, and so we sincerely thank you for the current project and we believe that the benefits are of tremendous value to our athletes,” said the Minister.Although the signing of the document took place only today, implementation of the programme began in January of this year when a contingent of Chinese coaches and administrators arrived in Jamaica to assess certain national teams, collaborate with local coaches and administrators, and prepare for the first batch of 138 Jamaican athletes and coaches to arrive in China. The first batch — representing seven disciplines: Synchronised Swimming, Gymnastics, Swimming, Badminton, Women’s Volleyball, Women’s Football and Women’s Basketball — is currently completing 60 days of intense training at specialised facilities across China.Mr Lu (speaking through an interpreter) said the Jamaican athletes made tremendous strides during training:“In the two months we have made great improvement.  The first (main) improvement is the record of your athletes and in the two months together, the athletes from Jamaica and China live, eat and train together and have built a great relationship between each other.”Ahead of signing the agreement in Beijing, Minister Grange travelled to some of the training centres in the cities of the Changsha and Kunming to observe the facilities, receive progress reports on the athletes from their Jamaican coaches and Chinese trainers, and to hear from the athletes their impression of the programme.  They all reported that the first year of the programme has been a success. Minister Grange said:“I’m happy to see first hand the vast improvement in the skill level of our athletes and to tour the facilities.  Our athletes have now been exposed to world class training facilities and to world class coaching and we will make sure that your investment is not wasted. We want to ensure that the infrastructure is in place for them to do well when they return to Jamaica and so we want to look at the development of our national stadium, for example.”Under the agreement, the Chinese government will also donate equipment to the seven sporting disciplines.  The equipment is to arrive in Jamaica this year. Minister Grange and the General Manager of China Sport International Company (the state-owned sports cooperation agency) Mr Lu Guoguang officially signed the agreement which will see more than 400 Jamaican athletes travelling to China for training over the next three years. The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has described the sports cooperation agreement which she signed in the Chinese capital today (Friday) as “historic and extremely beneficial”.
