Cricket News Moeen Ali reveals Aussie cricketer called him ‘Osama’ during 2015 Ashes

first_imgNew Delhi: England all-rounder Moeen Ali, who recently made his comeback to the red-ball cricket in the recently concluded five-match Test series against India, has claimed he was subject to racial abuse from an unnamed Australian cricketer during a match in the 2015 Ashes. Moeen, who is Birmingham-born with Pakistani heritage, had earlier addressed a racial abuse that he received during last Ashes from the Aussie fans. Now, the 31-year-old has mentioned the racial abuse incident during the 2015 Ashes in his soon to be published autobiography. In that particular match, England won by 169 runs, with Moeen being the pick of the players for his brilliant knock of 77 runs in the first innings and five wickets.   “It was a great first Ashes Test in terms of my personal performance, however, there was one incident which had distracted me. An Australian player had turned to me on the field and said, ‘Take that, Osama’ [a reference to Islamic terrorist Osama Bin Laden]. I could not believe what I had heard. I remember going really red. I have never been so angry on a cricket field,” Moeen Ali states in his autobiography.ALSO READ: Asia Cup 2018: The Tigers take on the Lions in campaign openerLater, England coach Trevor Bayliss narrated the incident to his Aussie counterpart, Darren Lehmann as it was a serious incident of racial abuse.However, the player refused to accept that he called him ‘Osama’, claiming he had said, Take that, you part-timer. I had to take the player’s word for it, though for the rest of the match I was angry.”The player in focus also said that he would never say something like this as some of his best friends were Muslim.ALSO READ: Asia Cup 2018: India vs Pakistan | Check out these rivalry statsMoeen further stated that he received more racial abuse during last winter’s Ashes Test in Adelaide, but this time from the audience, ‘when is your kebab shop opening?’ a fan had shouted from the stands.Moeen rejuvenated his form from last winter during the 4-1 Test series victory over India.

Trojans can’t let Rodgers brothers break out

first_imgGolden Tate was pretty good this past Saturday, but wait until you see what the other guys can do.The Notre Dame junior receiver took a USC defense that had barely bent all season — and was almost never broken — and, well, broke it a bit.Mighty threat · The 5-foot-6, 190-pound Oregon State running back Jacquizz Rodgers ran all over the Trojans in an upset victory in 2008. – Leah Thompson | Daily TrojanHe had eight catches for 117 yards and two touchdowns — the first two through the air against USC all season long.Now imagine what two Golden Tates could do against USC’s defense. Scary, right?That’s the problem the Trojans will face Saturday, when Oregon State comes to town with the Rodgers brothers, Jacquizz and James.Twice the skill, twice the playmaking ability.USC will have its hands full.“The Rodgers brothers are ridiculous,” USC coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday. “They’re both terrific football players. They can get you a number of different ways.”Jacquizz can run between the tackles and outside of them. He dances through seams like a man on a tightrope, delicately measuring each step on his way to accomplishing some grand feat.“He’s the style of runner that really demands of it your defense,” Carroll said. “You give him a crack, he can take it. If you make a mistake he’s going to take advantage of it.”And did he ever take advantage of it last year. No one will forget the sophomore running back’s 186-yard, two-touchdown performance in the Beavers’ 27-21 victory in Corvallis, Ore. a season ago.Jacquizz Rodgers became a household name.This year, he’s on a staggering pace. In six games, he’s rushed for nearly 700 yards and 13 touchdowns — running behind a line with one starting senior.He can catch the ball, too: 38 receptions for 269 yards.“There’s no magic to it,” Oregon State coach Mike Riley said of his running back. “He’s a good player.”A very good player.When the ball is in his hands, look out. Thirteen touchdowns don’t happen by accident.And his brother James?His two-touchdown performance in last year’s upset seems to slip through the cracks, but nothing the junior wide receiver is doing is slipping through the cracks this year.He leads the team in receptions with 43, receiving yards with 544, and has four touchdowns. He’s also averaging 15 yards per punt return and almost 23 yards per kick return.He’s an electrifying player with incredible skills.All of this presents a major problem for USC. How will the Trojans match up against the likes of two talented playmakers?We saw the way Tate gave USC’s defense fits this past Saturday. He broke a big play on an incredible catch for a touchdown, beating redshirt senior cornerback Josh Pinkard to the ball. He prolonged the potential game-tying drive with a leaping catch over the middle.Now imagine two players who can light it up like Tate on the field at the same time. Both can run and catch. They can make the plays to grind out yards just as well as they can burn you for the big play.“We’ve got to put together a great week of preparation,” Carroll said. “It really calls for a strict approach to it this week.”Carroll was pleased with the way his team started this week off in practice, but will that be enough to contain the Rodgers brothers?The Trojans had two weeks to prepare for Tate, yet he nearly beat them in the second half, making six of his eight grabs in the final 30 minutes and scoring twice.Yes, Tate does have junior quarterback Jimmy Clausen throwing him the football, and the Notre Dame line is ripe with seniors. And no, Oregon State senior quarterback Sean Canfield is not on Clausen’s level.But Canfield is beginning to hit his stride, and the Beavers’ offense is clicking with three straight games of 28-plus points.That means the offense is as explosive as it has been — and the Rodgers brothers are at the center of it.Now it’s up to the Trojans to stop Jacquizz and James on Saturday. If they can’t, the fourth quarter won’t be the only troublesome quarter for USC.“Thrilla on Manilla Paper” runs every other Thursday.

Race for 2022 World Cup Begins in Africa

first_imgTwenty-eight teams would be involved in the preliminary round of matches over two legs between today, September 4 and September 10 as the continent begin its elimination series towards the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.Interestingly, Super Eagles will not be playing at this stage of the tournament where 14 teams will emerge to join the continent’s top 26 countries (including Nigeria) in the second round.According to the format, the 40 teams will be drawn into ten groups of four. Super Eagles The ten group winners will qualify for the final knockout round, played over two legs.The five winners of those ties will represent Africa at the World Cup in Qatar 2022.The pick of the cherry at this preliminary round starting today is the tie between Burundi and Tanzania following their spirited display albeit without much success at the AFCON 2019 in Egypt. It would be interesting to see how far they have both overcome their AFCON failures.Despite recent progress and qualification to the AFCON for only the first time in their history, Les Hirondelles of Burundi failed to go past the group stage in Egypt, – losing all three matches and no goal to their name. Ditto Tanzania who returned to the AFCON for the first time since their debut in 1980, suffered similar fate by losing all three group stage matches and have since relieved Coach Emmanuel Amuneke of the Taifa Stars’ job.The Nigerian and 1994 CAF Player of the Year has subsequently being replaced by Burundi-born Etienne Ndayiragije, who was handed the job though on interim capacity due to his excellent work on the domestic Tanzanian scene with Kinondoni Municipal Council FC.The 40-year-old Ndayiragije has seemingly passed the litmus test when his side last month eliminated Kenya from the African Nations Championship (CHAN) and Tanzanians would expect his winning wand continues in the upcoming ties against Burundi.Similarly, this 2022 World Cup qualification would be an opportunity for rebuilding process for teams like Namibia and Zimbabwe after they both sacked coaches after wishy-washy performances at the AFCON in Egypt.The Warriors were eliminated in the group stage after losing to the hosts (Egypt) and Democratic Republic of Congo , and managed a draw against Uganda but they have a new man in charge following the appointment of Joey Antipas as a replacement for Sunday Chidzambga.In other games, neighbours Liberia and Sierra Leone will cross swords in Monrovia, Mauritius against Mozambique in Belle Vue whereas Portuguese-speaking duo Sao Tome and Guinea Bissau face off in Sao Tome.FIXTURESBurundi vs TanzaniaEthiopia vs LesothoEritrea vs NamibiaLiberia vs Sierra LeoneMauritius vs MozambiqueSao Tome vs G’BissauS’Sudan vs E’GuineaSomalia vs ZimbabweChad vs SudanSeychelles vs RwandaGambia vs AngolaComoros vs TogoDjibouti vs EswatiniBotswana vs MalawiShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
