Pope’s 8 for 35 sends Aussies into U-19 World Cup semi-finals

first_imgIN a display reminiscent of Shane Warne in his pomp, 18-year-old Australian leg-spinner Lloyd Pope decimated England’s Under-19 side, knocking them out of the World Cup in the unlikeliest of fashions.England looked to be on course for a comfortable quarter-final win, having reduced their opponents in Queenstown to 127 all out and cruising at 47 without loss in reply.But Pope entered the attack to take the first five wickets of the innings in just 32 balls, returning for a second 15-ball spell in which he bamboozled England’s tail-emders for three further wickets.His figures of eight for 35 off 9.4 overs led to inevitable comparisons to Warne, who tweeted his congratulations and revealed he had bowled with the youngster two years ago, hailing him as “a real talent”.Warne wrote: “This is terrific and brings a huge smile to myself. I had the pleasure of meeting this impressive young man in Adelaide a while ago. Was nice to bowl with him too – Lloyd give it a rip – well done and congrats! Spin to win my friend.”It brought an abrupt end to England’s hopes of winning the tournament, with Australia lined up to face either Afghanistan or hosts New Zealand in the last four.“You always have to have belief to win the game,” said Pope after his one-man performance. “All the boys have worked so hard for this and we never gave up – that’s the true spirit of all the boys. I always love playing for my country and to take some wickets was really awesome.”The red-haired Pope, who understandably boasts Warne as his idol, got into England’s heads from the outset of his spell. First, England opener Liam Banks was stumped by Baxter Holt, then captain Harry Brook was bowled by a googly, leaving Pope on a hat-trick.Although he failed to get his three in three, he did not have to wait long before Will Jacks was out for a solitary run.England still looked in the ascendancy with Tom Banton having scored 58 runs off 53 balls but his departure – caught at slip – caused panic in the England camp as wickets then fell steadily and they lost their final six wickets for just 25 runs.last_img read more

ChromeOS Feels Like the Past Before It Ever Became the Future

first_imgTags:#Analysis#cloud Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… mike melanson Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Related Posts After a couple months trying out Google’s Chrome OS powered tablet, the CR-48, and countless conversations about the company’s vision of the future I’ve reached one conclusion – the future of the cloud is not in my browser. It may be powered by standards-based technologies and work over the usual Web protocols, but it has to look better than this.If you haven’t yet seen Google’s Chrome OS, just take a look at the Chrome browser. That’s it. It’s a browser without a close, minimize or resize button. You’re eternally stuck inside that browser screen to do any and everything you want. There’s no other menu, there’s no nothing. Chrome OS seems to be saying that, just because everything exists in the cloud and is built using HTML5, that it has to look like it too. The user experience has to relate the technology. Rather, the cloud-based operating system that most strongly contradicts this thought will likely take the lead.I don’t know about you, but this isn’t the cloud I envision myself, and my future computing experience, living in. The cloud operating system will need to be a seamless experience, a fully transparent layer connecting the user with their data and online processing without them being any the wiser. As a matter of fact, it should give an even greater control over the display of information, not less. The idea that the future of the cloud looks like a browser seems preposterous. Why do we need to give up user experience, some tried and true organizational features like desktops, folders and taskbars, for a life contained in an un-minimizable browser window?[Image via SocialBarrel] 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Raising awareness of them is imperative,” added Dawson, who has used the experience to join up with the Big Tick Project, which looks to raise awareness about the dangers of ticks and tick-borne disease in the UK.
