ICC World Cup Jason Roy hits emotional hundred vs Pakistan with baby daughter in hospital

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. highlights New Delhi: Jason Roy blasted his eighth ODI ton off just 77 balls and backed by Ben Stokes’ amazing 71 off 64 balls, England registered a thrilling three-wicket win against Pakistan at Trent Bridge to take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series with one game being abandoned by a no-result. Babar Azam’s knock of 115 went in vain and despite Pakistan scoring 340/7, their bowlers once again struggled as England’s pitches produced yet another exhibition of run-scoring. This was Pakistan’s ninth loss in 10 games with one match at The Oval being abandoned due to rain. Roy’s knock earned him the player of the match but he revealed that the knock was difficult as his baby daughter Everly was admitted in the hospital.“It was a very emotional hundred. I didn’t see it coming. I had a bit of a rough morning so this one is a special one for me and my family. It was my little one. We had to take her to the hospital at 1:30 in the morning. I stayed there until 8:30 am, came back for a couple of hours sleep and got to the ground just before warm-up and cracked on,” Roy told BBC Radio’s Test Match Special. Apparently, after the end of the match, Roy went back to the hospital but it was revealed the condition was not that serious. Pakistan has lost nine out of 10 ODIs heading into the World Cup.Jason Roy smashed his eighth ton in ODIs.England could finalise their World Cup squad after the end of the series. Apart from Roy, Ben Stokes’ knock ensured England crossed the line in a tense match. Jos Buttler, who was the stand-in skipper following Eoin Morgan’s suspension due to a slow over-rate, hailed Stokes’ composure. “For Ben to soak up that pressure, come through it and be not out at the end will give him lots of confidence. It was great to see him play in that fashion. It’s great to watch Jason go about his work too. He’s been in great form and he was desperate to go on to his hundred,” Buttler said.However, Pakistan missed a crucial chance to seal the match when skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed did not appeal for a run-out of Tom Curran when he was on 6. Curran went on to make a crucial 31 and his haul of 4/75 earlier strengthened his case for his inclusion in the final 15-man squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Sarfaraz, though, lamented that his non-appeal was costly.“We had enough runs on the board and if we field well we win this game. The coach told me (about the run-out). I thought both bails had come out, I hope that if the third umpire saw it on the television he would tell the umpires as well,” Sarfaraz said. The final match will take place on May 19 in Leeds and England will be determined to finalise their team composition for the tournament which will begin on May 30 with the hosts taking on South Africa at The Oval.last_img read more

Rescuers Retrieve Swimmer

first_imgUPDATE August 11The swimmer, identified as 18-year old Kevin C. Searfoss of Rockaway, died at Monmouth Medical Center at 11 p.m., according to Sea Bright Patrolman Daniel Chernavsky.Original story: SEA BRIGHT, August 10 – A young adult male was pulled from the rough ocean water Monday morning and rushed to Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch.The man, who has not yet been identified by authorities, had a faint pulse when lifeguards retrieved him, said Sea Bright Councilman Jack Keeler.Ira Fields, who frequents the stretch of beach between Driftwood Beach Club and the town of Monmouth Beach,  was there when a group of young men arrived at the unguarded beach this morning at the 1500 block of Sea Bright and quickly jumped in.“Seven to eight kids ran into the water,” said Fields. “They were waist deep in the water. After a minute I heard someone call ‘Help! Help!’ so my wife called 911. I got my binoculars out but I couldn’t see a body anywhere. It was disturbing.”Nearby, Driftwood Cabana Club’s head lifeguard heard the desperate call.“I ran down the beach 400 yards and then I dove into the ocean and pulled him in,” said Tyler Schick. The young man he rescued seemed okay, but attention immediately turned to another missing person of the group.Other lifeguards and rescuers from Sea Bright Fire Rescue and Ocean Rescue squads poured onto the beach for adjacent areas, formed a line united by a rope, and began combing the ocean floor for the missing man in a coordinated effort.After about 20 long minutes, the man’s limp body was retrieved from the ocean by Mike Hudson, the captain of Sea Bright Ocean Rescue. CPR was administered, and a pulse was detected.“It was scary. I was tired. It was exhausting,” said Jenna Kowitski, a lifeguard at Driftwood who participated in the rescue.All along the beachfront,  red flags were flying to warn swimmers of the dangerous rip current conditions today.“We’re trying to warn people to stay put in front of lifeguards. This was an unguarded beach,” Hudson said. As private land, it is not part of the Sea Bright Municipal Beach area, officials said.John Gomez, who also witnessed the rescue, joined many others on the Sea Bright Fire Rescue Facebook page in congratulating the volunteers for their professionalism. “I was able to watch this and have to say – you guys did an amazing job. Your professionalism, focus and passion are exemplary!” he wrote.– Reported by Heather Nelson and Christina Johnsonlast_img read more

Ghana will play for us once we beat them, says Joseph Ochaya

first_imgJoseph Ochaya features for his current side Lusaka Dynamos during a recent league game. File photo.FOOTBALL–With the all or nothing tie against Ghana just over 24 hours away from kickoff, Cranes and Lusaka Dynamos left back Joseph Ochaya is optmistic Uganda will go on to achive world cup qualification.The 23-year-old who is capped 33 times for the senior national team side is hoping to be part of another history making chapter in Ugandan football after being part of the team that represented Uganda at the African cup of nations earlier this year in Gabon breaking a 39 year wait.With Uganda never qualifying for the World cup before, the former Navibank Saigon, Assante Kotoko and KCCA FC defender hopes that this is the year(next) that Uganda represents Africa at the show piece of world football.“Yes Ghana is going to cause us problems inside out like they have always done in the past. The biggest factor here is that we have played them on several occassions and we hope to use that in our favour to try and get all three points on Saturday,” Ochaya said.Saturday’s meeting will be the fifth between the Cranes and Black Stars in just over three years with each team winning once and drawing twice in the past four ties.Ghana’s only win in that period came in the very last meeting of the side at the AFCON tournament early this year in Gabon as an Andre Ayew penalty in the 32nd minute proved to be the difference after 90 minutes.Uganda hosted and defeated Ghana at Namboole in the Equatoria Guinea 2015 AFCON qualifiers 1-0 the last time the Black Stars where in Kampala.Proline defender Savio Kabugo scored the solitary goal on 10 minutes via a powerful header from a Godfry Walusimbi corner.“If we defeat Ghana on Saturday, they will be out of contention and come thier last group game at home to Egypt, they(Ghana) will not let Egypt beat them at home which plays in our favor as we will only require a win away to Congo Brazzaville to qualify,” Ochaya added.On Saturday, Ghana who are four points off the pace need to better Egypt’s result as the Pharaohs host Congo Brazzaville, to still stand a chance of progression to Russia 2018 but anything short of that will see the Black Stars out of contention.With Uganda only two points behind Egypt, the Cranes will need to much or better Egypt’s result this weekend and then require all three points away to Congo and hope Ghana can defeat the Pharaohs when the two teams lock horns in Tamale on match day six.Ghana arrived in Kampala last night and will have a training session at Namboole this evening ahead of tomorrow’s game.Commentslast_img read more

Man on rape charge denied passport for family wedding

first_imgAn Inishowen man, charged with rape and sexual assault, has been denied access to his passport to travel for a family wedding later this year.The man appeared before Buncrana District Court to apply to the court for the return of his passport, which he earlier surrendered due to strict bail conditions imposed. The man, who cannot be named due to a publication order imposed by the court, is charged with raping and sexually assaulting a woman at an address in Inishowen on a date in February 2017.He appeared before Buncrana District Court and applied to have his passport returned to him to allow to attend two weddings in Poland in the summer.His solicitor Frank Dorrian said he understands that the charges against his client are ‘very serious and significant’ and he knows the stakes in the case are very high in terms of the bail conditions.But he said the man has lived in Inishowen for the past 13 years and has strong ties to the community.He said he appeared before court on every occasion and fully co-operated with the Gardaí and would like to be able to travel to Poland on two separate occasions during the summer.Mr. Dorrian said he knows when the charges are so serious the risk of evasion are higher, but he hoped his client’s co-operation and engagement with the court process might counter that risk a little.However Garda Inspector Seamus McGonigle said this was a different level.“These are serious offences,” he told the court.“And this application is a different level there is just too much risk. I accept there might a be family occasion but with respect that doesn’t matter – he is a flight risk.”Mr. Dorrian said he knows that they are on a ‘thin wedge’ but added that the man, despite not being married or having any children, had family connections in Inishowen.However, Judge Paul Kelly said it was ‘somewhat a stretch’ to give the man his passport back and refused the application.Meanwhile Insp. McGonigle said he was applying to the court for some extra time for preparing the Book of Evidence in the case.He said Gardaí needed an extra month to prepare the Book. Judge Kelly agreed and adjourned the case until June 13.Man on rape charge denied passport for family wedding was last modified: May 15th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:buncranacourtdonegalpassportlast_img read more
