Of the 15,033 eligible to vote, 9,159 chose not to. Owner Assem Allam, whose financial backing helped return the club to the Barclays Premier League, has vowed to walk away from the KC Stadium if the name change is blocked. The Football Association is yet to decide on the proposals. Hull said in a statement the ballots were counted independently by Beyond Dispute. Hull season ticket holders have voted narrowly in favour of changing the club’s name to Hull Tigers. A total of 2,565 fans voted in a recent ballot in favour of the name change with the Allam family continuing in charge of the club, while only 48 fewer rejected the proposal. However, with only a 39 per cent turnout, just 17 per cent of season ticket holders eligible to vote backed the name change. Press Association
Kolkata: The Indian football team slipped two places to 106 in the latest FIFA rankings released on Thursday after their 1-1 draw with much lower-ranked Bangladesh in the World Cup qualifier earlier this month.Despite securing an impressive 0-0 draw against Asian champions Qatar in September, the home stalemate against then 187th ranked Bangladesh saw India drop two ranks from 104 to 106 in the latest tally. Bangladesh, meanwhile, jumped three spots to 184 riding the result which their head coach Jamie Day had described as being similar to India’s famous tie against Qatar.Meanwhile, Belgium has remained at the top spot in the rankings with France and Brazil also holding on to their positions.Top-ten rivals Uruguay (5th, up 1), Croatia (7th, up 1), Argentina (9th, up 1) have edged closer to the summit, according to the FIFA website.But the most significant rises are to be found further down the Ranking, where the in-form quartet of Ukraine (22nd, up 3), Japan (28th, up 3), Turkey (32nd, up 4) and Russia (37th, up 5) are among the more notable climbers.Jumps of ten or more places have also been made by a clutch of teams outside the top 50, namely Nicaragua (137th, up 11), South Sudan (162nd, up 11), Barbados (160th, up 10) and São Tomé and Príncipe (180th, up 10).And there are celebrations, too, for Kosovo (114th, up 5), who can again feel pride in their best Ranking position to date.

New Delhi: In the build-up to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, there is plenty of debate on the nature of the pitches in England. The England vs Pakistan series saw the hosts put up totals in excess of 350 with remarkable ease. In the last five years, ever since the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup debacle, England has notched up scores of over 300+ 30 times. The broad consensus heading into the World Cup for teams was that pitches in England were absolutely flat and batsmen would have a field day. In the warm-up game between India and New Zealand at The Oval, it was expected that a high-scoring encounter was on the cards considering the flat nature of the Oval deck.However, contrary to the script, Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team were on the receiving end of a masterclass from Trent Boult. He snapped Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul in a sensational burst of new ball bowling and India were reduced to 39/4. New Zealand seized the momentum and India were tottering at 115/8. Had it not been for Ravindra Jadeja’s attacking 54, India would not even have reached 150. Kohli’s side was bundled out for 179 and New Zealand won by six wickets with Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor smashing fifties. This loss came in a warm-up match. The stats and numbers are not counted in the player’s tally. It is not even an official match. Jasprit Bumrah bowled just four overs and picked up one wicket for two runs. Yes, too much should not be read into a warm-up game. However, the loss does raise some questions.Rewind to Hamilton 2019. On a pitch that offered a hint of swing. Repeat, just a hint of swing. India was razed out for 92 with Boult taking 5/21. Just a hint of movement in the right areas is enough to trouble India’s batsmen. Rohit Sharma’s dismissal is a classic case in point. Boult pitched it up on a length and it swung back in, Rohit played down the wrong line and was trapped in front. In England, Kohli has always been troubled by deliveries that have swung just outside the off stump. Kohli played with a slightly angled bat and dragged a delivery from Colin de Grandhomme which nipped back in onto the stumps.The inability of the Indian batsmen to counter slight movement could be a worry when they head into the main tournament. The fact that swing undid them at The Oval should give them a wake-up call. In the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy final against Pakistan, Rohit, Dhawan and Kohli were all undone by the pace and bounce of Mohammad Amir as Pakistan won the game by 180 runs.From the Oval to Hamilton and back again at the same venue in the space of two years, India’s top order when confronted with a little swing tend to develop cold feet. In these two years, whenever the top order has failed, the middle order has struggled to get going. The Delhi ODI loss to Australia was a classic case when the top order failed and the middle order could not get the momentum.To reiterate, this is a warm-up that has no bearing in the overall cricket statistics. But, it is the right time to iron out certain flaws in the batting with India’s game less than 10 days away at the same venue against South Africa. New Zealand bowled out India for 92 in an ODI in Hamilton in February 2019.Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan fell cheaply.India will open their 2019 World Cup campaign against South Africa at The Oval. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
The former Nigerian sprinter Adigun is part of the new team of global influencers who are joining with youth champions behind the “Zero Malaria Starts with Me” campaign to inspire awareness and action on this World Mosquito DaySpeaking during an event to commemorate the World Malaria Day, CEO of the RBM Partnership to End Malaria, Dr Abdourahmane Diallo, said malaria does not stop devastating lives during health emergencies and still kills a child every two minutes, adding, “Indeed, experiences from the Ebola outbreak in West Africa show it can resurge in times of crisis with immediate and deadly consequences. Covid-19 has exposed weaknesses in health systems around the world and, with lives at risk and resources increasingly stretched; long-term malaria investment alongside short-term Covid-19 response is essential, smart, and cost-effective.”To shine a spotlight on the vital importance of sustaining malaria efforts during the Covid-19 pandemic, the Bigger Picture campaign, launched recently, featured Eliud Kipchoge, Siya Kolisi, Saray Khumalo, Luis Figo, and Seun Adigun.The stars filmed themselves wearing a face mask whilst talking about the vital importance of tackling malaria and saving more lives during the pandemic, creating a striking image of Covid-19 and malaria together – a visual representation of seeing the Bigger Picture.Malaria is one of the world’s oldest and deadliest diseases, transmitted by mosquitoes, which still kills an average of over 400,000 people annually – over 90 per cent of them in Africa. An estimated 228 million long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) were due to be delivered across Sub-Saharan Africa this year – more than ever before – but severe disruptions to life-saving net campaigns and limited access to antimalarial medicines as a result of Covid-19 could potentially result in a doubling of the number of malaria deaths in the region compared to 2018, according to recent modelling analyses by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Imperial College, London.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram By Mary NnahAgainst the backdrop of the global pandemic, leading athletes from Africa and beyond, including Kenyan world-record-holding marathon runner Eliud Kipchoge, World Cup-winning South African rugby captain Siya Kolisi, top female South African explorer Saray Khumalo, veteran international footballer Luis Figo, and founder of the first-ever Nigerian bobsleigh team, Seun Adigun, are urging people to ‘see the bigger picture’ by tackling Covid-19 and malaria together to save more lives.Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga were the three women who put Nigeria down in history as Africa’s first bobsleigh team at the last Winter Olympics in Korea.

“I was just happy to be part of the organization for all those years,” he said, “just to be a professional player and play, but really I never have given it any thought about them giving me a statue or anything like that.”Baylor averaged 27.4 points and 13.5 rebounds over the course of his career. He appeared in 11 All-Star games and was a first-team All-NBA player on 10 occasions.He famously ended his illustrious career nine games into the 1971-72 season, retiring one game before the Lakers reeled off a league-record 33 consecutive wins en route to their first championship in L.A. He is generally considered one of the greatest players to never win a championship, having lost in the NBA Finals seven times.Baylor recognizes that a shrinking number of fans are old enough to remember his playing days. When asked what he hoped people remembered about his career, he paused as he searched for an answer.“Be honest, I never really thought about it,” he said. “Just that the fact that I went out, gave 100 percent, everything I had, enjoyed playing. I had terrific teammates, and just enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun. And nothing else to say, but pleased that they’re building a statue and excited to see how it goes.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThe Lakers are expected to announce their plans for the statue on Tuesday.“I don’t know how I’m going to react or anything once I see it,” Baylor said, “because nothing like that has ever happened before. But I’m sure that I will enjoy it. Will get an opportunity to probably see some of the people I played basketball with, some of the guys. And I think it should be an interesting day, a fun day.”Perhaps the first great Lakers player of the Los Angeles era, Baylor made the move from Minneapolis with the team in 1960, and went on to spend his entire 14-year-career with the franchise. His No. 22 jersey is one of 11 to be retired by the Lakers and he ranks in the team’s all-time top five in points, minutes and field goals. He is the franchise’s career leader in rebounds with 11,463.Baylor spent 22 years as the Clippers’ general manager, winning Executive of the Year in 2006.To some, a statue for Baylor was long overdue. However, it was something Baylor said he had never really considered.

The ceremony to unveil Baylor’s statue, the sort he has attended as a supporter, will be held prior to the Lakers’ game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
