first_imgSANTA CLARA — No, Jimmy Garoppolo can’t win ’em all. Nor can he fake an angry-man demeanor.As the 49ers starting quarterback comes off his first career loss, he hasn’t morphed into a rowdy cheerleader to rile up his teammates for a rebound performance in Sunday’s home opener against the Detroit Lions.“It’s been the exact same, and I’d be disappointed if it was any different,” coach Kyle Shanahan said of Garoppolo’s persona. “He didn’t have his best game last week but he doesn’t need to come …last_img read more

first_imgIn a massive blow to the Indian cricket team, opener Gautam Gambhir and pacer Ishant Sharma were on Friday ruled out of the second Test against Australia due to knee injuries while VVS Laxman became doubtful on account of back spasms.The celebrations of a narrow one-wicket win over the visitors on Friday had not even ended when the Indians were left to deal with the twin loss ahead of the second and final match of series scheduled from October 9 in Bangalore.”I have an injury and I won’t be playing in the Bangalore Test,” Gambhir told PTI.The BCCI named batsman Abhinav Mukund and pacer Jaydev Unadkat as replacements for Gambhir and Ishant.”Gautam Gambhir and Ishant Sharma have been ruled out of the Bangalore Test against Australia, on account of injuries to their right knees. The All-India Selection Committee has picked Abhinav Mukund and Jaydev Unadkat in their place. Mukund and Unadkat will be replaced in the squads for the NKP Salve Challenger Trophy by Harpreet Singh and Pankaj Singh respectively,” BCCI Secretary N Srinivasan said in a statement.While Mukund plays for India Red, Unadkat represents India Green in the tournament.Gambhir, who scored 25 and 0 in the first Test against Australia, was hit in the knee while fielding at short leg on Thursda when he took evasive action to save himself from a Michael Hussey sweep shot off Pragyan Ojha.Ishant, on the other hand, had been carrying the injury in the match.Concerns also remain about Laxman’s status who batted through pain to heroically guide India to a win in Bangalore.advertisementBangalore Test is a must-win game for us: HusseyDown 0-1 in the series, Australia batsman Mike Hussey on Friday said the visitors are determined to come out with flying colours in the second and final Test against India starting here on Saturday.Incidentally, the second Test against India would be Australia’s last five-day game before this year’s Ashes but Hussey said their priority now is to win the next match and level the series.”Every Test match is big. Yes, it is the last Test before the Ashes but we are not thinking about it this stage. We are 0-1 down in the series and we have to win this match and level the series,” Hussey told reporters.”That is the focus at this moment…To play good, disciplined Test cricket for long periods of time. If we play with the same intensity that we did in Mohali, we have a good chance of leveling the series,” he added.The left-handed batsman, however, is a disappointing man to have lost the Mohali Test from a winning position.”It was a Test match which we could have won. We had our chances, but we could not do the job and get over the line. After match, the dressing room was very quiet,” Hussey said.”From a positive point of view, we did a lot of things right. We are playing against the number one team in the world with a relatively young team. We will try to maintain that consistency here,” he said.Asked why is India such a tough opponent on home soil, Hussey said, “They know how to handle pressure and how to handle every situation. They have done it many many times before.”Their bowlers, Harbhajan (Singh) and Zaheer Khan has played lot of Test cricket and has got lot of experience. They know the conditions well and how to use it to their benefit,” he said.last_img read more

first_imgIslamabad: Prime Minister Imran Khan on his return from the US on Sunday said that those standing by Kashmiris were doing “jihad” and Pakistan will support Kashmiris even if the world does not. Prime Minister Khan, who focussed on the Kashmir issue in his maiden address to the UN General Assembly, told his party workers at the airport here that whether the world is with the Kashmiris or not, we are standing with them. It (standing by Kashmiris) is jihad. We are doing it because we want Allah to be happy with us, he said. It is a struggle and do not lose heart when the time is not good. Do not be disappointed as the Kashmiris are looking towards you, he said. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: ReportHe said “Kashmiris would win if the Pakistani people stood by their side”. Khan on Friday raised the Kashmir issue in his address to the UNGA and demanded that India must lift the “inhuman curfew” in Kashmir and release all “political prisoners”. In his speech that went on for about 50 minutes, far exceeding the 15-minute limit for UN speeches during the General Debate, Khan devoted half of his address to the Kashmir issue, warning that if there’s face-off between two nuclear-armed neighbours, the consequences would be far beyond their borders. Also Read – Iraq military admits ‘excessive force’ used in deadly protestsHis war rhetoric was in sharp contrast to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s peace message from the same podium few minutes earlier in which he said India is a country, that has “given the world, not war, but Buddha’s message of peace.” Pakistan has been trying to internationalise the Kashmir issue after India withdrew the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, but New Delhi has asserted the abrogation of Article 370 was its “internal matter”. India’s decision evoked strong reactions from Pakistan, which downgraded diplomatic ties and expelled the Indian ambassador.last_img read more
