New Delhi: Naseem Shah’s international journey as a cricketer has already become a roller-coaster journey. After accusations of age-fudging, Naseem made his Test debut where he bowled 20 overs but struggled for control and penetration as he ended with just one wicket. Naseem got the wicket of David Warner off a no-ball and although he got his wicket again, Warner had scored 150. His omission from the Day-Night Test in Adelaide raised questions. After arriving back in Pakistan, Naseem was selected in the Pakistan squad for the upcoming Under-19 World Cup which will be held in South Africa.However, there is confusion now regarding his selection in the Under-19 squad. Naseem has been selected in the national team for the upcoming two-Test series against Sri Lanka which will be part of the ICC World Test Championships. There are reports that he might be selected for the series against Bangladesh in January that is also part of the Championship cycle but it will also coincide with the Under-19 World Cup. According to a source in the Pakistan Cricket Board, Naseem cannot play in both the senior and junior squads at the same time.”Two reserve pacers have already been named in the camp and if Naseem is required for national duty he will be replaced as he can’t play for both the senior and junior teams,” the source said.The head coach of the Pakistan juniors Ijaz Ahmed confirmed that he has asked chief selector and national bowling coach Waqar Younis to release Naseem from the senior outfit for the youth World Cup. Ijaz, the former Test captain, who recently guided the Pakistan Emerging side to the Asian Emerging Nations Cup title said once Naseem joined the junior team the pace attack would look very menacing.”Like I said before he will be our main weapon in the mega event and I want him to join the training camp with the junior players at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore. Naseem will add a lot of potency to our attack as we have some other very good young pace bowlers and spinners,” Ijaz remarked.Also Read | After Test Debut, 16-Year-Old Naseem Shah To Play In Under-19 World Cup For PakistanTest cricket returns to Pakistan after 10 years with Sri Lanka playing two Tests in Rawalpindi and Karachi. In 2009, international teams stopped touring Pakistan after the Sri Lankan cricket team was targeted by terrorists in Lahore. After several tours by teams like Zimbabwe, West Indies, ICC World XI and recently the Sri Lankan team, the improving security situation has led to the return of Test cricket in the country.

By ForwardProgress, January 8, 2016 in Sports Logo News SportsLogos.Net Sign in to follow this 11 Forums Home Pro and College Cheerleading Squad Logos 11 11 ForwardProgress Cheerleaders don’t get a lot of attention on this site so I thought I’d make a thread dedicated to pro and college cheerleading squad logos. After doing some research on this, I stumbled upon many logos I’ve never seen before and many of them are great examples of the graphic design styles that were popular the year they were designed.”Pro” mostly means NFL, NBA, and NHL cheerleaders, as well as any additional dance teams, but if you find any logos for WFL, USFL, XFL, CBA, WNBA, WHA, modern day hockey minor leagues, etc, cheerleading squads by all means post them too.”College” means the cheerleading squads and dance teams that perform at NCAA football and basketball games.One thing that is common with cheerleading squads is they tend to have goofy names, often a pun off the pro or college team they are cheering for. I will make sure to point out the best examples below.In my opinion what makes these logos interesting is more often than not they borrow the colors and certain design elements from the team the cheerleaders are cheering for. So even if you didn’t know the name of the squad you could still guess what team they belong to based on the colors and design of their logo.Feel free to add pics of cheerleading squad logos to this thread as you find them! I’m starting with the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders because I found 10 different variations of their logo since the 70’s and 10 pics is the limit for posts.Here we go:1966–1977 Dolphin Dolls1978–1983 Dolphins Starbrites1984–present Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders And last butt not least: what looks like a Victoria’s Secret model wearing some kind of outfit featuring their logo: Cheerleading Cheerleaders All Activity Sports Logos NBA 319 posts Followers 1 NCAA ForwardProgress NHL Forums Home Favourite Logos:Hartford Whalers, Binghamton Whalers, and anything from the 70’s Sign in to follow this Sports Logo News Go To Topic Listing Posted January 8, 2016 All Activity Logos SportsLogos.Net Followers 1 Football This topic is now closed to further replies.

Dennis Praet has been linked with a move to Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur earlier in the window, but it looks like Leicester City are expected to acquire the Sampdoria midfielder’s services. Sky Italia reported on Tuesday evening that Brendan Rodgers’ side are ‘close to an agreement’ with the Serie A club for the 25-year-old.Tuttosport claim the Belgium international is ‘ready to leave Sampdoria and move to Leicester’.Sampdoria value Praet around €26m and are working to find an agreement with all parties involved to close the deal.Embed from Getty ImagesIf Leicester meets Sampdoria’s demands, then there should not be any obstacle for Praet to join Leicester.His former manager, Marco Giampaolo wanted to sign him for his new club, AC Milan. However, Praet is more likely to move away from Italy.Sampdoria face Spezia in a friendly later today and the former confirmed on their official website that Praet has been left out of the squad for the fixture.It could be another indication the player’s future could be away from Sampdoria.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The rise and reset summarizes the career of Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith.One of the most talented players in franchise history, Smith has repeatedly ascended to the cusp of greatness, only to be denied by injury over and over. Often those setbacks have come at critical junctures of seasons for Baltimore, who has qualified for the playoffs just once since Smith defended the last two pass attempts of the final goal-line stand in Super Bowl XLVII. He hasn’t appeared in even a late-season do-or-die scenario since 2013 because of injuries.Drafted in 2011 to be the next Chris McAlister, Smith missed a combined nine games in his first two seasons and didn’t become a full-time starter until 2013, allowing him to shed the premature label of being a first-round bust. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound defensive back appeared on his way to his first Pro Bowl in 2014 before a Lisfranc injury to his left foot ended his season and hindered him for much of the following campaign. The climb to the top tier of cornerbacks began again in 2016 before a high ankle sprain in Week 14 cost him the remainder of the season.Then came last year’s torn Achilles tendon in Week 13 after he’d overcome pain in the heel throughout the season to again look like one of the top corners in the league.Another reset.“It sucks. I’m not going to act like it doesn’t,” said Smith, who turns 30 this week and returned to practice less than seven months after the injury and subsequent surgery. “It seems like I’m constantly trying to fight just to get back to even instead of training and excelling [and getting] better and progressing even more. It’s always getting back even, getting back to just being healthy. It’s really just keeping a strong mental [attitude]. Coming in, I obviously read things about me; I can hear it and feel it.“Obviously, I want to be on the field. It hurts.”Head coach John Harbaugh has been one of Smith’s biggest supporters, proclaiming he would “make history as a cornerback” when he was only entering his second full season as a starter four years ago. The injuries have not only stunted Smith’s greatness and denied a potential place as one of the team’s all-time greats, but they’ve frequently come at inopportune times for a defense that’s been unable to shed a “good, but not great” label since future Hall of Famers Ray Lewis and Ed Reed walked away.Might the Ravens have held off Tom Brady and New England in the 2014 divisional round instead of squandering two 14-point leads if Smith had been on the field? Does Ben Roethlisberger so easily march Pittsburgh down the field in the 2016 Christmas heartbreaker if Smith was playing right corner instead of Shareece Wright? What about last season when the defense blew late leads against the Steelers and Cincinnati in the final four weeks, once again leaving the Ravens on the outside looking in?These are the questions you ask when falling excruciatingly short of the postseason in back-to-back years and one of your best players isn’t on the field for the critical moments.“You kind of hurt for him because he’s played himself into that position year after year, and the injuries have taken their toll,” Harbaugh said. “And then he kills himself to get back. Hopefully, this will be the year where he can stay injury-free the whole time. He’s worked really hard, and he’s really talented and really is conscientious. I’m in his corner. I want to see him do well.”Last season felt different for Smith, whose toughness had occasionally been questioned in the past by his harshest critics and frustrated fans. His name first appeared on the official injury report in Week 5, but he persevered through heel soreness, regularly missing practice time during the week before showing up to play the best football of his career on Sundays. According to Pro Football Focus, opposing quarterbacks posted a measly 49.2 passer rating when targeting him in 2017 as he matched his career high with three interceptions, recorded nine pass breakups, and scored two defensive touchdowns.But his left Achilles tendon finally gave out against Detroit on Dec. 3. Baltimore entered that week ranked second in the NFL in pass defense before finishing the season an underwhelming 10th. That type of overall decline has been all too common following a Smith injury, a reason why he was hellbent on staying on the field.“I did [platelet-rich plasma] shots, I did Prednisone, I did everything I could possibly do, and resting it,” Smith said. “As soon as I would break or run, it would come back immediately. There was nothing really I could do besides trying to rest it, and you can’t really rest during an NFL season. I just played until it went out.”Adding insult to injury was Smith receiving a four-game suspension for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. Many figure Smith had to be taking something to aid in his efforts to stay on the field, but he attributed the failed test to an unapproved pre-workout supplement earlier this week.“It’s a mistake that’s easily avoidable,” Smith said. “I wasn’t conscious of it, and I didn’t know, obviously. I would never take a steroid or some PED. I don’t need that type of stuff to play football.”Smith is back in a familiar position, needing to prove himself all over again while also fighting the stigma of a PED suspension. Coaches and teammates have praised his work ethic throughout the offseason and have been amazed by his quick return to the practice field.He says the torn Achilles hasn’t been nearly as challenging as his 2014 Lisfranc injury, an ailment that still gives him occasional problems. Few would have predicted Smith already practicing in late July as teammate Eric Weddle quipped that his healing ability rivaled that of Wolverine last month.“I’m feeling fine, normal,” Smith said. “Just getting back into playing football and the cuts and stuff that you can’t really [simulate off] the field. You can’t really duplicate some of the stuff that you would do in practice. Those kinds of little nuances I have to work on, but other than that I feel totally fine.”Smith enters a pivotal season as he enters the penultimate year of his current contract and carries a $15.35 million figure on the 2018 salary cap, the second highest on the roster. A scheduled $9.5 million base salary and $15.85 million cap figure next season could prove too risky if Smith fails to return to form or is again stricken by injury in 2018.The Ravens quietly began preparing for that possibility last year by using their first-round pick on Alabama cornerback Marlon Humphrey, who looked the part of a future No. 1 corner as a rookie and has similar attributes. Their cornerback depth is as strong as it’s been in years with reliable veteran Brandon Carr still on the roster as well as young options such as Tavon Young, Maurice Canady, Anthony Averett, and Jaylen Hill.Even if Baltimore is better equipped to endure his absence than in previous years, Smith has every intention of regaining his pre-injury form and resuming his ascent to a potential Pro Bowl.“I think I can get there as soon as possible,” Smith said. “I don’t really feel any setback or anything that’s holding me back from doing that.”You only hope the latest career setback was the final one.
Taylor Hill/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) — Kim Kardashian’s new shapewear brand is getting a new name after all.The reality star has announced she’ll be changing the name of the upcoming line from “Kimono,” after receiving backlash for cultural appropriation.In an Instagram post Monday, Kardashian says she’s grateful for the direct line of communication she has with her fans and the public.“I am always listening, learning and growing — I so appreciate the passion and varied perspectives that people bring to me,” she writes. “When I announced the name of my shapewear line, I did so with the best intentions in mind.”She continues, “My brands and products are built with inclusivity and diversity at their core and after careful thought and consideration, I will be launching my Solutionwear brand under a new name. I will be in touch soon. Thank you for your understanding and support always.”After initially announcing the new line was called “Kimono” last week, fans criticized her for appropriating the name of a traditional Japanese robe. Initially, Kardashian defended the choice of the name, telling the New York Times she had no plans to change it.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

04/07/2016 Borrell’s work has not gone unnoticed and both Guardiola and Begiristain have decided he should have a place on the first team’s new project. Pep and Rodo know each other from their time at Barça together, when Begiristain was also at the Catalan club. In July 2009 he moved to Liverpool (2009-2014) with Rafa Benitez and Pep Segura, where he trained the Under 18 team and then the reserve team, before taking over as director of the club’s academy during his final season on Merseyside. Rodolf Borrell will make up part of Pep Guardiola’s coaching staff at Manchester City after working as director of the club’s academy for the last two seasons. Guardiola has made serveal changes to his staff, with Mikel Arteta also joining the set up in Manchester. CEST Txiki Begiristain, a key figure in Borrell’s career, took him to City in 2014, giving him the task of developing and implementing new training methods at the club, which quickly showed results. The youth teams at City have stood out for their attacking style and their manner of playing, which in turn has led to good results. The differences could be seen this past season, with City winning various national titles, including the Under 18 Premier League, as well as several international tournaments. Up until this point, Borrell’s professional career has been long and successful. He was a coach for 14 seasons (1995-2009) at Barça’s academy – working with nearly all the age groups – where he won a number of titles and contributed to the development of players such as Lionel Messi, Gerard Pique and Cesc Fabregas when he coached the famous 1987 generation. Ivan San Antonio Upd. at 17:32 City have various young players who will be on the fringes of the first team in the coming seasons and with Rodolf Borrell forming part of Guardiola’s team, these young players will encounter a familiar face when the doors open for them.
