Powered by Firework Folowing the cancellation of the first match due to bad administration by the curators, India and Sri Lanka finally went head to head in the second match of the ongoing T20 series yesterday at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. While Team India had a comfortable chasing victory, the main talking point of the match was Virat Kohli. Not because of his knock on the pitch, but his amazing mimicry of teammate Harbhajan Singh’s unique bowling style, and even received appreciation from the man himself!Advertisement Image Courtesy: AFP/Star SportsDuring the warm up session before the match, the skipper was seen imitating Bhajji’s signature stance before bowling, and his peculiar hand movement while delivering the ball. Even after that, Kohli was seen doing it again, while Harbhajan was himself present on the field, reacting to the funny incident along with Irfan Pathan, before they greeted Kohli.As Irfan Pathan was heard saying “this is going to go viral”, it definitely has. Watch the Indian captain in his comic avatar in the clip below, courtesy of the Twitter handle of cricket journalist Prasenjit Dey.Advertisement Harbhajan, the legend himself was present at the scene with Irfan, who was enjoying his compatriot’s act.The 39 year old casually humoured: “You people invited me today so I will stand here, and watch how Virat Kohli does my acting,” and laughed over a jesting Kohli, who was also doing Harbhajan’s pose after bowling.However, Irfan revealed that it was not the first time Kohli did this. “Earlier while playing with him, we have seen this reaction, and the one before that too,” meaning that the 31 year old used to do this regularly.While Bhajji has not been the choice of Men in Blues’ bowling squad anymore since 2016, the Chennai Super Kings star has been a regular presence in the Indian cricketing scene. Along with former teammate Irfan Pathan, who recently announced retirement from all forms of cricket, yesterday’s pre match scene was a light up.Winning the toss, Kohli opted to field first, as Sri Lanka put up a target of 143, with Shardul Thakur picking three wickets. The hosts started off the chase with a stormy 45 off 32 from K L Rahul, and the skipper himself who scored a quick 30 from 17 balls, India won the match by the 18th over with 7 wickets remaining.The third and final match of the series will take place at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium on Friday.Also read-Vigilante Turbanator: Harbhajan Singh bats for Suryakumar Yadav selection; accuses Indian selectors of biasGuwahati groundsman’s ‘lack of awareness’ blamed for India – Sri Lanka T20 getting cancelled Advertisementlast_img read more

Guus Hiddink still eyeing top-four finish

first_imgGuus Hiddink believes Chelsea can still finish fourth this season, and he will continue to do so ‘as long as it is mathematically possible’.The Blues looked back to their best on Sunday as they beat Crystal Palace 3-0 at Selhurst Park – their first away Premier League win since August – and it continues Chelsea’s unbeaten run since Jose Mourinho’s departure in December.The three points takes them up to 14th in the table, 12 points off fourth-placed Tottenham with 18 games to play.The Chelsea manager said: “It’s rather difficult, normally Chelsea should always be competing for the top positions.“But coming from that far [behind Spurs], it’s mathematically possible to go in fourth position but with the strength of this league it’s difficult.“But if we play like today with our discipline and using the quality of the players, we don’t know.“As long as it’s possible, we will go on.”Chelsea’s overall performance was arguably one of their best of the season, showing unity and glimpses of quality which saw them ease to last year’s Premier League title.Stars who were not performing under Mourinho looked sharp and interested and the Dutch boss says that is down to taking things back to ‘basics’.  “When a player enjoys what he is doing then his quality will [improve].“But it demands some giving, not just taking. And they were willing.“Not just now, but in the previous games. The team is willing and the players who are not normally willing to do that, they do so and that is what I ask of the team. Basic things.“When they do that they start enjoying the game and perform very well.”Nigerian midfielder John Obi Mikel returned to Chelsea’s starting XI last week in the draw with Manchester United after impressing Hiddink and he caught the eye of Chelsea fans in his deep-lying midfield position.Hiddink said of the 28-year-old: “When I took the first training session around the Sunderland game, I saw him in small games playing and smiling and I know he can be of big value to bring balance to the team.”SEE HERE – ‘Chelsea are back, Diego Costa is back!

Ebola survivors share life-saving tips via mobile app

first_img8 January 2015Ebola survivors in West Africa are connecting with each other and sharing public health advice, as well as speaking about the challenges they face in post-recovery, using an interactive mobile app available through #ISurvivedEbola, the ground- breaking West African multimedia campaign.The innovative digital tool debuted in Guinea on 5 January, piloted by the first Guinean survivor to share her story with the #ISurvivedEbola campaign. The website also houses the stories of a growing community of Ebola survivors from Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea.In the first message sent via the mobile app, Camara “Fanta” Fantaoulen said: “Yes, I survived Ebola, thanks to the help of the brave health care workers who treated me. And I’ve learned that together, we can defeat this virus and protect our families and communities.”After losing her father and five other family members to suspected or confirmed Ebola, Fantaoulen believed her death was imminent when she tested positive for the virus. Thanks to a combination of early treatment, strict adherence to her treatment plan, and sheer determination, she recovered from the virus and is now providing psychosocial support to Ebola patients.Survivor storiesThe mobile app is the latest component of the #ISurvivedEbola campaign, which leverages survivor stories from Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea to deliver vital public health information about Ebola to affected populations, and to reduce the stigma faced by Ebola survivors.A key way in which the campaign does this is by documenting survivor stories in video, audio, and print formats; then disseminating these stories broadly via local, national, and international media, online platforms, and other distribution channels. Educational radio dramas that tell fictional yet reality-based stories of survival, and radio call-in shows that feature Ebola survivors as guests, are among the campaign activities.#ISurvivedEbola is part of the #TackleEbola initiative and is implemented by PCI Media Impact in collaboration with Unicef.Each survivor who has shared his or her story through the campaign is given a smartphone installed with the app. This helps them to use the technology to share information about their lives after recovery. The smartphones and the app were provided and developed with support from the charity fundraising website GlobalGiving.With the release of the app and launch of the website, the #ISurvivedEbola campaign has completed the first phase of its roll-out. It includes two additional survivor story videos from survivors in Liberia and Sierra Leone, respectively.Helping othersThe Liberia video introduces the world to Decontee Davis, a 23-year-old who overcame Ebola but lost her fiance to the virus. Davis now works in an interim care centre for children who have come in contact with Ebola patients and are under 21 days of observation. Many of these children have lost one or both parents to the disease.From Sierra Leone, audiences meet Aminata Kargbo, a university student who, after surviving Ebola, has become a leader in efforts to educate others on the benefits of early treatment.“We began in early December with the launch of the campaign and release of the first survivor video out of Liberia,” said Sean Southey, chief executive of PCI Media Impact.“Then, the campaign launched educational Ebola-focused radio programmes in Liberia and released the premier survivor story out of Sierra Leone. Now, we have activated the mobile app, released the first survivor story out of Guinea, and launched a website that will allow concerned citizens throughout the world to join the movement.”The multiple #ISurvivedEbola campaign products and activities are reinforcing the existing work being done by organisations like Unicef in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea to spread key messages about Ebola to the public.“While treatment of Ebola patients is critical, the best way to end the Ebola outbreak in West Africa is to cut the chain of transmission and prevent further infections,” said Rafael Obregon, chief of the communication for development section at Unicef.“As the global UN lead for the Social Mobilization Pillar of the Ebola response in West Africa, Unicef is at the helm of efforts to stop transmission by working with national governments and partners to educate the public in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea about how to protect themselves, their families, and their communities from the virus.“#ISurvivedEbola is reinforcing our efforts by providing this information in multiple, highly entertaining forms, including through the testimonies of actual survivors.”Videos for the #ISurvivedEbola campaign are available on Vimeo, while audio clips are available on Soundcloud.Follow #ISurvivedEbola on Twitter @SurvivedEbola, Facebook, and Instagram @isurvivedebola. Source: APOlast_img read more

It moves me when fans chant my name – Ciro Immobile

first_imgCiro Immobile acknowledges that he stayed in Lazio despite having been given big wage offers and also adding that he considers it an honour to play for Lazio.The last season’s Serie A Capocannoniere signed a new contract earlier this month that has been scheduled to expire in June 2023.“When I am on the field and hear the fans chant my name, it moves me every time,” Immobile told Lazio Style Channel while replying to student questions on a school visit and quoted by Football Italia.“It’s a great honour for me to play for Lazio and I remained here despite being offered bigger wages elsewhere.”Ciro Immobile, ItalyCiro Immobile relieved to end Italy goal-drought Andrew Smyth – September 9, 2019 Striker Ciro Immobile was a relieved man after finally ending his two-year Italy goal-drought during Sunday’s 2-1 win over Finland.The children asked him about his early days and the job of being a football player.“My father passed on his passion for the sport, whereas my brother was never really interested. I used to cry when my parents wouldn’t let me go out and play football due to my poor grades. Football had become my life.“Nowadays, we don’t really get time to visit cities when we travel for matches, as we eat and then stay in our rooms the day before the game.“During training, we work on technique, tactics, pace, mentality and how to face various match situations. We joke around in the locker room and consider the opponents to be colleagues, but still try to beat them on the pitch.”last_img read more

Marcelino unsatisfied with Valencias 21 win

first_imgValencia boss Marcelino Garcia Toral was left to rue his side’s lack of clinical edge in front of goal after narrowly beating bottom side SD Huesca 2-1On the back of drawing for the 10th time in only 16 games at SD Eibar last weekend, Valencia got off to a bright start at the Mestalla against Huesca.Captain Dani Parejo put Los Che in front, after some great play with Denis Cheryshev and Rodrigo Moreno, before Santi Mina was denied adding a second by Huesca keeper Roberto Santamaría.After Carlos Soler was denied by Santamaría in the second-half, Huesca were awarded a penalty after Cucho Hernandez was pulled in the area.The Colombian forward then stepped up to slot the penalty-kick home to even the scoreline at 1-1.However, a stoppage-time winner from Italian defender Cristiano Piccini secured Valencia a fourth win in La Liga this season.FC Barcelona, Valencia CFMatch Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).“It’s a result that doesn’t give us much; we’ve drawn ten games in which we deserved much better results,” Marcelino told the club website.“In Eibar, we deserved to win. This result compensates for one of the many draws that we’ve had.“We hope that this win helps boost our belief in ourselves. We’re a competitive team who have played as equals against big sides.“However, we have had -and still have- a serious problem, which is our lack of goals.“We have to work on this. I’m optimistic and I think that this situation is going to be turned around.”Valencia have now broken into the top-10 of La Liga and will next take on Deportivo Alaves on January 5.last_img read more
