Football News India suffer 2-5 defeat against North Korea in Intercontinental Cup


first_imgNew Delhi : Listless in the first half, India fought back in the second session with a spirited display but still lost 2-5 against North Korea to suffer their second consecutive defeat in the Intercontinental Cup football tournament here Saturday. Jong Il Gwan (8th and 29th minute), Sim Hyon Jin (16th), Ri Un Chol (63rd) and Ri Jin (90+2) scored for North Korea while Lallianzuala Chhangte (51st) and captain Sunil Chhetri (61st) reduced the margin for India.  The loss put the home side virtually out of reckoning for a berth in the final as they occupy the bottom of the points table. Tajikistan are in the top of the table with six points from two wins while Syria and North Korea have three points each. Defending champions India have an improbable chance of making it to the final if North Korea lose against Tajikistan on July 15.In that situation, the home side will need to beat Syria by nine-goal margin in their final league match on July 16, which is highly unlikely.The top two teams will make it to the final of the four-team tournament. If two or more teams end at same point, the ranking will be decided through goal difference.   India now have minus five goal difference while North Korea have zero and Syria plus one.   After their 2-4 defeat at the hands of Tajikistan in the opening match on July 7, India were expected to produce a much improved show but they were listless in the first half, conceding three goals.They did produce a dominant performance in the second half, scoring two while also conceding two to lose the match in front of a sizeable crowd which included sports minister Kiren Rijiju at the EKA Stadium.India coach Igor Stimac has insisted that results in this tournament would not matter much as the team prepares for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, and he made as many as nine changes from the starting line-up in the Tajikistan match.Amrinder Singh started at the goal instead of number one choice Gurpreet Singh Sandhu and the likes of Udanta Singh and Sahal Abdul Samad did not start though they were brought in the second half.Just like against Tajikistan, the Indian defence wilted under intense pressure from the North Korean forwards. While the North Koreans struck thrice and had many other chances, India had just one chance in the first half which Chhetri wasted as he failed to keep his running header down.Stimac introduced Chhangte and Udanta in the second half, and also brought in Sahal later. Indian looked like a completely changed side as they controlled the game for most part of the second half. Apart from the two goals they scored in the second half, India could have added more. Sahal, Udanta and Chhetri had chances to score but failed to find the back of the North Korea net. North Korea scored a goal against the run of play and then added another in the injury time.  For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Butler’s hot shooting night helps lead Syracuse to win over Binghamton


first_imgDespite being a freshman, Brianna Butler has not been afraid to launch the 3-point shot this season. Heading into Saturday’s game against Binghamton, she had taken 47 3-pointers, making 13.Against the Bearcats, all eight of Butler’s field-goal attempts came from beyond the arc. She made four.“Obviously, Brianna Butler is a great shooter for us,” head coach Quentin Hillsman said. “She has to make open shots, and she did tonight.”Behind Butler’s 12-point effort and a balanced offensive attack, the Orange outlasted the Bearcats 68-45 to move to 10-1 on the season. Binghamton struggled from the field, shooting at a 28.6 percent clip (16-for-56), and SU got the win after a week of rest from game action.Despite suffering through a tough early season that has seen only one win in 11 games, the Bearcats hung with SU early.  Binghamton pulled to within 20-17 on a 3-point shot by Stephanie Jensen with 5:30 remaining in the first half.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut from there, the Orange defense tightened, holding Binghamton scoreless for the remainder of the half. SU closed the half on a 10-0 run, capped off by a Pachis Roberts 3 with 23 seconds left. Elashier Hall opened the second-half scoring with a 3-pointer that put SU up 33-17, and Binghamton would not get within 14 points the rest of the way.The Orange defense held up despite limited minutes from star senior center Kayla Alexander, who was held to 18 minutes due to two early fouls. Alexander’s foul trouble led to extended action for Shakeya Leary and Taylor Ford, who played 15 and eight minutes respectively.The two combined for 11 rebounds and played an important role in limiting Binghamton’s second-chance opportunities, Alexander said.“No matter what happens, I know we have so many other players like Keya and Taylor who have no problem (stepping in),” Alexander said. “(They) can usually come in, step in, just do their thing and help the team to be successful.”Four Orange players scored in double figures, with Hall leading the way with 14. Alexander continued her reliable pace with 12 points, five rebounds and four blocks, and has scored in double figures in all 11 SU games this season – while accumulating 44 blocks.Syracuse has strived to maintain a deep rotation and spread meaningful minutes across the lineup throughout the season. The Orange did it again on Saturday, 13 players seeing playing time, and nine of them racking up double-figure minutes.“To have four players in double figures tonight is really, really big for us,” Hillsman said. “That’s all we want, is balance. We want to have balance on the floor, balanced scoring, a balance of rebounding. I thought that overall, we had that.”If SU had shot a little better (the Orange went 20-for-63 from the field, a 31.7 percent clip), the margin of victory could have been even greater. Hall went just 4-for 12 despite leading the team in scoring, and senior guard Carmen Tyson-Thomas (0-for-5) was held scoreless for the first time all season.SU will try for its 11th win of the season on Friday, Dec. 21, when it takes on Washington State at the Carrier Dome at 7 p.m.Any win is a good win, especially at the end of exam week, Hillsman said.“Coming off exams is tough,” Hillsman said. “We knew going into this game that it would be tough getting going. But obviously, we played well enough to win.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on December 15, 2012 at 6:54 pm Contact Kevin: [email protected]last_img read more

Why do some airliners have windshield wipers and others do not?


first_imgKeeping airliner windshields clear today is a far cry from the early piston era when pans of alcohol mounted above the instrument panel were lit on fire to prevent windshield icing. Windshield wipers, still in use even on the Boeing 747, are highly effective at sweeping rain and snow away from aircraft windshields, but with the higher speeds of jets, other innovative methods were employed to maintain good pilot visibility during approaches and departures in bad weather. The biggest single advance was using heated high-pressure bleed air ducted from the aircraft’s engines to cover the windshield with a protective layer of hot air to prevent ice from building-up on the glass.Other methods for maintaining pilot visibility in bad weather include electrically-heated wires imbedded in the windshield, thin sheets of alcohol dispersed externally on the windshield, or a combination of trusty windshield wipers augmented by a rain-dispersing agent. Another factor in anti-icing and rain dispersal is the design of the windshield itself. The current Boeing 737 windshield, in use since 1954, has six perfectly flat panes of glass. Newer wide-body airliners have compound-curved windshields with entirely different airflow characteristics for mitigating ice accumulation and rain.last_img read more

I have the ability to remain unfazed, don’t feel pressure: Shikhar Dhawan


first_imgHis technique in seaming conditions has often come under intense scrutiny but Shikhar Dhawan doesn’t have time for doubting Thomases as he gears up for the battle ahead in the ICC World Cup.Dhawan, one half of world’s most formidable limited overs opening pair, has always performed well in marquee events and is confident that he would be able to replicate his stellar show in familiar conditions like in Champions Trophy in 2013 and 2017.He was also India’s most successful batsman in the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.”People tell me about my record in ICC events but frankly speaking, the intent has always been the same. It’s not that the effort is less than 100 percent ever. The focus as always is on the process. I am confident that I will have another good ICC tournament,” Dhawan told PTI during an exclusive interview.The 33-year-old had a modest international season before roaring back to form in the IPL, scoring 521 runs for Delhi Capitals to finish fourth in the top run-getters’ list.So was there any kind of pressure as the World Cup was round the corner, “No” was Dhawan’s emphatic reply.”I am not that sort of a guy who feels the pressure. I have the ability to remain unfazed. And critics? Woh apna kaam kar rahein hain (They are doing their job). If I don’t score runs in 5-10 games, it doesn’t mean that everything is lost. I know what kind of a player I am and what my capabilities are,” said Dhawan, who has 16 ODI hundreds and 5355 runs in 128 ODIs.advertisementAsked if the dissection of his technique outside the off-stump and the kind of analysis done bothers him, the senior opener replied, “To know what is being written about me, I need to read the newspapers or watch television. I don’t do both, so what’s being discussed hardly bothers me. And as far as social media is concerned, yes I am on twitter and Facebook but I hardly use them.””I am not someone who is constantly checking twitter updates or Instagram comments. I just check it occasionally. Let me tell you something — I don’t have time for negativity in my life. It can bog you down if you constantly want validation from the outside world. I don’t need that,” he said.In fact, he says, Ricky Ponting and Sourav Ganguly’s presence in Capitals’ fold couldn’t have happened at the right time.”Both Ricky and Dada were successful international captains because they had the ability to create champions. Obviously their experience helps. They told me that there is no problem with my technique.”It has now been 15 years in senior representative cricket for Dhawan (having made his first-class debut back in 2004) and the fire still burns brightly in him.”Mera jazbaa aaj bhi utni hi hai (the passion is still the same as it was when I started). As I told you that I have shut out negativity and primarily because I am a happy go lucky person. Before I made my Test debut, I had played nearly nine years of first-class cricket.”Had I not been passionate and hungry, I couldn’t have performed for India after nine years of domestic cricket. Now I have played six years of international cricket. It has been a great journey,” he said.There is a different facet to his personality as he has now started taking interest in classical music and is learning flute.”I am a big fan of Sufi music. The Wadali brothers (Puranchand and Pyarelal Wadali) are my favourite. Now I have started learning flute and I am enjoying it like anything.”So how did he start learning flute? “I realised that I do have time at my disposal when I am not playing matches or training. Once I started listening to flute on Youtube, I took a liking for it and decided to learn the art.””You need to de-stress and for that you need to have a hobby. Har insaan ko life mein kuch shaunkh paalna chahiye. Yeh zaroori hain. I am not someone who would over-think about my game.”So rather than sitting and chatting in my hotel room, I thought why don’t I learn a bit of music. I am still very new but I now I can identify the raagas like Hamsadhwani.”A devoted family man, Dhawan would shuttle between Delhi and Melbourne, where his wife Ayesha and his three children are settled.”My family often joins me on tours but then children have school. So whenever I get a 15-day break, I am off to Melbourne to spend time with my wife and kids.”advertisementWith a young family, it is difficult but he attributes it to the strong support system and the sacrifices his wife Ayesha and children make.”They know that my focus is on providing them a good life. I want the best education for my kids and everything that can help them have a better life,” he concluded.Also Read | India favourites for World Cup, says Shikhar DhawanAlso Read | R Ashwin thought about Mankading Shikhar Dhawan.
