Stokes and Hales named in England one-day squad for Australia

first_imgLONDON, England (Reuters) – Ben Stokes has been included in England’s one-day squad for the five-match series in Australia despite being under suspension.Stokes is currently unable to play for his country pending a decision on whether to charge him in connection with an altercation outside a Bristol nightclub in September.But he has been named in the 16-man squad for the ODI series starting next month after selectors were given “clear guidance to name their strongest squad”.He is joined by Alex Hales, who was also suspended after the Bristol incident but has since been told he can play for England after police confirmed he would not face criminal charges.Both players could yet face disciplinary action by the England and Wales Cricket Board.But with Stokes’ situation still not determined, he may not feature in the five-match one-day series, let alone the current Ashes series.The England all-rounder is currently in New Zealand, where he is playing for Canterbury after being granted dispensation by the ECB.With no decision yet made on whether to prosecute him, his chances of featuring in the Ashes, which has three Tests remaining, are diminishing.“Should the ECB Board receive formal confirmation that Ben Stokes has either been charged or that he will face no charges, they would convene within 48 hours to make a decision on his availability for the team at that stage,” the ECB said.Also in the one-day squad are Kent batsman Sam Billings and Yorkshire’s David Willey, who is selected ahead of Essex’s Ravi Bopara.The first one-day international is in Melbourne on January 14.England squad: Eoin Morgan (Middlesex) (capt.), Moeen Ali (Worcestershire), Jonathan Bairstow (Yorkshire), Jake Ball (Nottinghamshire), Sam Billings (Kent), Jos Buttler (Lancashire), Tom Curran (Surrey), Alex Hales (Nottinghamshire), Liam Plunkett (Yorkshire), Adil Rashid (Yorkshire), Joe Root (Yorkshire), Jason Roy (Surrey), Ben Stokes (Durham), David Willey (Yorkshire), Chris Woakes (Warwickshire), Mark Wood (Durham).last_img read more

Donegal business owner sends stark warning to leaders over no-deal Brexit

first_imgA Donegal businessman who owns a coach hire company on the Donegal-Derry border has urged Boris Johnson and Leo Varadkar to sit down and compromise over Brexit. Reddins Coach Hire is based on the Derry-­Donegal border and its boss Don Reddin said it feels like the area is caught in an international “game of poker”.He told a national newspaper: “It’s a very unstable time.” Mr Reddin says British Prime ­Minister Boris Johnson’s outright rejection of the backstop and ­Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s refusal to consider changes to the Withdrawal Agreement creates a “mad puzzle”.And the businessman says local anxiety hasn’t been as high since the Troubles, adding: “You don’t want people’s feelings running higher than they already are.”Mr Reddin claims a way to break the stalemate and to tackle the threat of a no-deal Brexit must be for both sides to give ground.He added: “If they leave ­without a deal, where do you start with sorting that out? “I understand where Boris is trying to come from, that Theresa May looked like a weak leader.“It’s all getting hot in the Tory kitchen. By the same token, as far as the EU is ­concerned they have done their negotiation.”The coach hire chief added: “If they leave ­without a deal, how do you sort that out? Where do you start? Transport regulations, all the cross border ­trading?“I close my eyes and shake my head in disbelief that they could be jeopardising so much.”Another business on the straddles between the Donegal and Fermanagh border has called for a solution “as quickly as possible”.He added: “Both sides are saying ‘this is a red line’ but at some stage or another somebody’s going to have to talk.”The backstop, hatched between former UK PM Theresa May and chiefs in Brussels, guarantees a seamless border between the Republic and Northern Ireland.It kicks in only if post-Brexit border trading and security talks fail. Advertisement But Mr Johnson says he can’t accept the UK keeping such close formal ties with the EU in any transition period after leaving at 11pm on Halloween night.The EU position, championed by Mr Varadkar, is that the backstop must be in place ahead of any deal being struck.That tense face-off means a no-deal Brexit, and the trading ­turmoil it could spark, is looking increasingly likely just 83 days from the deadline.Pub owner Pat Britton, whose bar in Pettigo village stands right on the border between counties Fermanagh and Donegal, said the issue was Britain’s to fix. Advertisement He sees no reason for UK and Irish leaders to hammer out ideas around the backstop.Mr Britton said: “It’s nothing to do with Leo Varadkar. The Tories are trying to bully the Irish Government into a position that is their fault.“It’s not our fight. It’s a fight with Europe. They voted to get out of Europe so it’s their problem.”Donegal business owner sends stark warning to leaders over no-deal Brexit was last modified: August 10th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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)last_img read more

2010 catalyst for Zimbabwe?

first_imgt23 July 2009One could be forgiven for still feeling apprehensive about the situation in Zimbabwe.For many years, Africa and the rest of the world has watched its political and economic meltdown, which spilled over into neighbouring states, casting a pall over much of the sub-continent’s progress and, of course, South Africa’s 2010 World Cup preparations. Nevertheless, by securing the rights to host the quadrennial showpiece of international soccer, South Africa has become a beacon of hope for Zimbabwe and the rest of the continent.And over the past few months, there have been strong indications that the tide has turned and that Zimbabwe is now gearing itself to play a pivotal role in the 2010 tournament.For starters, a government of national unity has been formed, a move which has stabilised the economy, curbed post-election violence and given the country’s tourism industry a major boost.With concerns being raised over accommodation shortages in South Africa, Zimbabwe is now being promoted as a popular alternative.Victoria Falls, home to the world’s largest waterfall, is re-establishing itself as a luxury and adventure travel destination ahead of the tournament, with plans to attract thousands of tourists.Several senior Fifa officials are visiting Zimbabwe this week to assess the situation, and Fifa chief Sepp Blatter has reportedly indicated that he plans to visit before the tournament.Despite the political uncertainty, global football’s governing body has invested heavily in Africa’s former breadbasket. It has funded the installation of an artificial turf in the capital’s Rufaro Stadium, giving the ageing facility a new lease of life.Could 2010 prove to be the catalyst marking Zimbabwe’s full return to the international fold?Urquhart is a former Fifa World Cup media officer and the current editor of Project 2010last_img read more

2017 Ohio Crop Tour I-71 Day 1

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest       Presented by AgroLiquidFollow Day #2 of the I-71 Leg of The 2017 Ohio Crop Tour Marion County Corn Summary: Both of these fields were replanted and both were 20 inch rows. The corn had a ways to go and the dirt was very dry as you can see by our stake. Very light insect and disease pressures and the ear count was 33. Bird and raccoon damage was seen here as well. Overall this field was clean with some pollination issues and our yield guess is 165. Marion CountyMarion CountyMarion CountyMarion County Soybean Summary: This was the most variable field we have been in on tour. Some water damage was noted and now, ironically, it could use a little rain. Canopy height was 34 inches and the first node was 4 inches high. We rate this field as Fair to Good. Marion CountyMarion CountyWyandot County Corn Summary: Took a long and windy path to find this massive field (Bart hopped up on the van for the picture because we don’t have a drone #EastIsBeast). It felt like an episode of Breaking Bad and we weren’t sure we would be getting out. Pretty nice field here but we noticed some firing. Some Grey and rust on the upper leaves. This field wasn’t to dent stage yet either. Very few fields have been. No insects here and pollination could have been a touch better. Our yield estimate here is 173. Wyandot CountyWyandot CountyWyandot County Soybean Summary: We found some double crop soybeans here in the R2 stage. Saw our first stink bug of the tour. Needless to say there is still a lot of potential here. Canopy height was 14 inches and the first node began 3 inches up the stalk. This field is rated Good by our scouts.Wyandot CountyWyandot CountyCrawford County Corn Summary: This soil needs some moisture. Deep cracks tell that story and this corn is not yet dented and you can tell that it is recovering from excessive rain early on. Some Grey and rust here but overall things aren’t that bad. Ear count was 34 and our yield estimate is 198. Crawford CountyCrawford County Soybean Summary: This field was extremely clean with just minimal Frog Eye, Japanese Beetles and Grasshoppers. Canopy height was about 40 inches and the first node was about 4 inches up. We rate this field as Good. Crawford CountyCrawford CountySeneca County Corn Summary: This field was planted on May 17th and it was another really nice stand. Common rust was heavy but other than that this corn was in pretty good shape. We did notice some weak stalks and more tip back. Our yield guess here is 208.Seneca CountySandusky County Corn Summary: This field was planted on April 15th and the stand is excellent. Some common rust but no sign of GLS or Northern. Some tip back here too in this R4 field. Our yield guess here is 174. Sandusky CountyHuron County Corn Summary: Best stop of the tour so far. Excellent fill during pollination and a solid ear count of 31 will give us a yield estimate of 231. Most 18s and a 20 around didn’t hurt. Rain is needed here soon as the leaves are starting to roll. The milk line was at 1/3. Common rust was seen in this field and some Northern was noted. Huron CountyHuron CountyHuron County Soybean Summary: Needed rains will be really helpful to these beans. We were still able to get the roots out, but it was a bit more of a challenge here. Disease and insect pressures were very low in these young beans. Canopy height was 38 inches and the first node was found 3 inches high. We rate this field as Good. Huron CountyHuron CountyAshland County Corn Summary: By the looks of things this corn was planted very late, maybe the 10th of June. Our samples just gave us enough to work with and the variables are much higher here with so much longer to go until maturity. If we would have had this stop before lunch these might have been good on a salad. Ground is dry here and the dirt is gravely. Ear count was 33 with light disease and insect pressure. Our yield guess with what we had to work with was 162.Ashland CountyAshland CountyAshland County Soybean Summary: These soybeans may look better from the road than they actually are. Rain will be needed here for a good pod fill. Pop was around 160-170,000 and there were some insects feeding but no disease to be found. Canopy height was 46 inches and the first node was 5 inches high. We rate this field as Fair to Good.Ashland CountyAshland CountyWayne County Corn Summary: This corn in southern Wayne County is in great shape and it just starting to show a little N deficiencies. Population could have been a little more aggressive as these ears will filled to the tip. Very little disease and insect pressures (some grasshoppers). A 30 ear count here and a yield guess of 193. Wayne CountyWayne CountyWayne County Soybean Summary: 20 inches rows here and they could use some rain. Canopy height was 36 inches with nodes starting 3 inches up. Some Sun scull and insect pressure but not too much. We rate this field as Good. Wayne CountyWayne CountyHolmes County Corn Summary: This field still hasn’t reached dent stage and the ear count was 30. When we got our samples out they looked really good but the looks were deceiving as we had a few 14s here. Some Grey was found but not bad at all and no insects here. Our yield number is 153 here.Holmes CountyHolmes CountyHolmes County Soybean Summary: This farmer wasted no field as these beans were planted right up to the berm of this gravel road. Our two scouts went in two different directions and the samples were much different. One pop count was 160,000 and the other was 68,000 and it showed in plant development and the root system. We found some Septoria Brown Spot and Downey Mildew along with some light grasshopper feeding. Canopy height was 40 inches and the first node was 4 inches high. We rate this field as Good.Holmes CountyHolmes CountyRichland County Corn Summary: Another solid field of corn here. This is the highest ear count we have had so far at 36. Nitrogen seemed to be holding its own here. By far the cleanest field we have seen thus far and a couple of 18 arounds. Very little disease and pest pressure here. 198 is our yield calc here.Richland CountyRichland CountyRichland County Soybean Summary: Starting to see some frog eye on this part of the tour. Very little but it is noticeable. Canopy height was 38 inches and the first node from 3.5 inches high. Light insect pressure and there is still some potential for additional pods here. We rate this field as Good to Excellent.Richland CountyRichland CountyKnox County Corn Summary: We had the rare opportunity to have this farmer on hand for our check. This corn was planted the Tuesday after Easter and is easily the best we have seen so far. This area of the county got about 2 tenths of rain Tuesday evening and moisture was still in good shape here. Grey leaf was noted below the ear but insects were no where to be seen. Eat count was 30 and milk line was 1/2. Our yield calc here is 210 bushels per acre.Knox CountyKnox CountyKnox County Soybean Summary: Marestail has made its way to this field but it hasn’t hurt it too much. These heavily podded beans had a first node start at about 4 inches high and the canopy was 44 inches tall. Disease and pest pressures were light. Only Japanese Beetle feeding here. We rate this field as Excellent.Knox CountyKnox CountyMorrow County Corn Summary:  This corn has a long way to go as pollination was just wrapping up. Ear count was at 29 and the stand was even and the ear set was high. Hail had hit this field at some point and there was some disease pressure noted. On some of our samples the top 2 inches do not pollinate. Too early for milk here. Our yield guess is 145 for this field.Morrow CountyMorrow CountyMorrow County Soybean Summary: These soybeans were much better than what we saw yesterday. You could tell they didn’t get off to the best start with the uneveness, but if we got a freeze tonight, these would still be just fine from a yield standpoint. Weed control was spot on and no real disease or insect pressure. Canopy height was at 36 inches and the nodes were short. About R5 here and we couldn’t help but notice all of the 4-bean pods! We rate this field as excellent.Morrow CountyMorrow CountyLicking County Corn Summary: Easy to see this field was planted a bit later than our previous field, as has not yet dented. Soil moisture was good here and grey and rust was noticed but very minimal. Ear fill was just okay here with an ear count of 30 and our yield guess is 158 bushels to the acre.Licking CountyLicking CountyLicking County Soybean Summary: Marestail pressure was the first thing we noticed here and once we got out into the field we saw plenty of Japanese Beetle damage, although they were long gone. Canopy height was 33 inches and the first node showed up at about 7 inches high. Pods were starting to fill and some flowers showed that more potential was there. We rate these beans as Good.Licking CountyLicking County Delaware County Corn Summary: Everything that you could want a corn field to be at this stage of the season is right here. Population was very good, insects and disease pressure were low. The reason that this field will not see its full yield potential is because of heavy bird damage, upwards of 15%. Our yield calculation at our first stop is 160 bushels to the acre with a 31.5 ear count.Delaware CountyDelaware CountyDelaware County Soybean Summary: This field was at R5 and had a canopy height of 42 inches. Disease and insect pressures were light here too and this field recently had a sprayer through it. These beans were planted into a rye cover crop and the first node started at 13 inches high. On a scale of Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor and Very Poor, we rate this field as Good.Delaware CountyDelaware Countylast_img read more
