I am confident that we are going to announce a good team. We have worked on this for almost one and a half years. We have observed all the players, tested good combinations. We are confident that the team we will announce, will definitely win the World Cup to be held in England in 2019,” Prasad said. highlights “We are not going to give the excuse that we lost the games because we tried out players. As a side, combination wise, we are sorted. Condition-based, there is one maximum change in the World Cup. We are clear on the playing XI for World Cup. We have to focus on the decisions that resulted in our loss. Hardik Pandya’s return balances the batting and the bowling. We know where we are going to the World Cup as a combination. We have to take better decisions in pressure situations. There is no confusion relating to combination or the playing XI,” Kohli said.India will begin their World Cup campaign against South Africa on June 5 in Southampton but all eyes will be on the June 16 encounter against arch-rivals, Pakistan.

  • Gabrielle Cooper’s been honing an unexpected off-court skill for 10 years

    first_imgLANSING, Ill. — Shortly after 1 p.m. on a Friday in mid-May, Gabrielle Cooper arrived at Naturally Nappy Locs by Benji, the salon run by her mother in this small town. She walked through the storefront door, about 25 miles south of Chicago, and looked around.The building is nondescript. Inside, there’s no scent of fresh products, no loud music — just a TV in the back of the room and some chit-chat. A few barbers and stylists were occupied with customers. Minutes after her arrival, Cooper, a junior guard for the Syracuse women’s basketball team, walked over to a window. Then she put on her black apron and went to work.“Good energy,” she said, opening the blinds to let sunlight in. She began to twist the dreadlocks of a woman in front of her, who happened to be her grandmother, Deborah Smith.Save for activities on the basketball court, Cooper’s idea of the perfect Saturday is spent here, twisting hair. She has been one of Syracuse’s key players over the past two seasons, but her off-court passion is styling hair — specifically, the dreadlocks of men and women. The art is central to her life.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMatthew Gutierrez | Senior Staff WriterCooper learned the trade from her mother, Benji Hardaway, and the pair come together whenever Cooper is home from Syracuse during the summer and on breaks. Taking care of hairdos is Cooper’s side hustle — and her backup plan if her WNBA dreams don’t work out or end sooner than she’d like.An important part of many of her clients’ lives is maintaining Afrocentric hair, Cooper said. “Locs,” short for dreadlocks, is a hairstyle where the hair that would be combed or shed locks on itself, creating ropelike strands.Cooper said hair can send a message about one’s personality or self-image, and it’s a way to channel beauty. Her three-step process is wash, twist then dry, with the end goal of twisting natural hairstyles “into something beautiful,” Cooper said. She treats each hairdo differently, giving each the sort of attention, care and respect that she learned from her mom.Integral to the process is tight twisting. As she twists the hair, she wants to make it tight so it stays locked and lasts a bit longer.“I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately, getting older, trying to figure out what I want to do with my life,” Cooper said. “I have the talent for this, and there’s always going to be a market for it.”Paul Schlesinger | Staff PhotographerDuring the school year, Cooper has less time to work at her craft. Off-days are her best opportunities to open up shop out of her South Campus apartment. Her mother’s clients have included NFL star Brandon Marshall, but Cooper rivals that with a list of her most loyal customers: Syracuse football players.One day two years ago, SU junior defensive back Scoop Bradshaw was walking in Manley Field House. His hair was frizzy, and his locks were tangled. At least it appeared that way to Cooper, who stopped him in his tracks to call him out.“She was like, ‘You need your hair done ASAP,’” Bradshaw recalled.Cooper mentioned she could take care of his hair herself. Bradshaw was skeptical — he said his hair says a lot about who he is, and he doesn’t mess around with who styles it. But Cooper gained his trust when she said her mother had taught her the craft. That Cooper has dreads, too, solidified her as reliable, Bradshaw said.Bradshaw came over to her apartment the next Friday, and she spent five hours twisting his hair, Cooper said, because he hadn’t been to a stylist in over a year. When he looked in the mirror later that day, Bradshaw liked what he saw. The result has been a two-year business-like relationship between Cooper and Bradshaw.“She’s the only one I let touch my hair,” Bradshaw said in August, when he scheduled an appointment with Cooper so his hair “looked good for the first day of class.”Alexandra Moreo | Senior Staff PhotographerWord spread. In fall 2016, Bradshaw’s teammates asked who was doing his hair. He told them it was a women’s basketball player, Gabrielle Cooper. They hit her up via text, and soon she was doing their hair, too. She charges about $60 per appointment, which usually takes between one and two hours.Last fall, Cooper found herself doing several other football players’ hair, including junior fullback Chris Elmore, also a native of the Chicago area. He now tries to meet with Cooper as frequently as every three weeks, because he has a saying he shares with teammates: If you want to play in the NFL, he tells them, you’ve got to start acting like it.“You look at those guys, they’re well-groomed, always,” Elmore said. “So we have to try to keep ourselves that way too.”Back in Lansing, Illinois, in May, Cooper was working in tandem with her mother, who doubles as her inspiration for hairstyling and personal hero. As the soundtrack changed to a local radio station, which was playing Frank Sinatra’s “High Hopes” — “He’s got high hopes” — Cooper spun around the chair to reach the other side of her client’s hair.Cooper said she has been styling hair since she was about 11 years old, mimicking her mother, who taught herself how to style hair by studying YouTube videos. As a little girl, Cooper began helping her out when needed. But one day, Cooper’s mother, Benji, was overbooked. That’s when Cooper took her first client. She’s been hooked to the craft ever since.“Pass the spray, mom,” Cooper said at her mother’s shop.Her mother smiled back and tossed her the bottle.“This is home,” Cooper said, and then she went back to work, twisting one dreadlock after the other.

  • Sprint king Bolt rejects Malta football offer

    first_imgHe scored two goals in a pre-season friendly last Friday but is yet to be offered a deal, with cashed-up Valletta dangling a two-year trial-free contract to entice him away earlier this week.But Bolt’s agent Ricky Simms said he had opted against a move to the Maltese Premier League team, which is backed by a group of investors from the Sanban Group in the United Arab Emirates.“There is a lot of interest in Usain playing football,” he told ESPN.“We regularly receive similar approaches. I can confirm Usain does not wish to pursue this opportunity in Malta.”Valletta chief executive Ghasston Slimen told the broadcaster: “We wish Usain Bolt all the best with his football career. The Valletta FC offer is always on the table.”Australia’s domestic A-League season starts this weekend, with the Mariners in action on Sunday away to Brisbane Roar. With no contract, Bolt is not eligible for selection.Club chief executive Shaun Mielekamp said this week the Jamaican “will continue his indefinite training period … until any further notice”.Reports suggest the Mariners are waiting for governing body Football Federation Australia to decide whether it will contribute to a potential Aus$3 million (US$2.1 million) offer to the 100m world record holder.Sydney’s Daily Telegraph on Thursday reported Bolt and Mielekamp sat down for a coffee in the wake of the Malta offer for clarity on his future.It said the 32-year-old, who regards Australia as a second home, might consider accepting less money if it means locking in a contract.Coach Mike Mulvey was reluctant Thursday to talk about Bolt, saying he was not involved in contract negotiations.“I’m really not interested in it (contract speculation) to tell you the truth,” he told reporters.“He’s been great among the guys and I was very happy for him last week with the two goals he scored, but we move on.”Mariners captain Matt Simon dismissed suggestions the chronicles of Bolt were distracting the squad ahead of their A-League opener.“He’s been here for a couple of months now, so everywhere we go with Usain, everyone’s talking about him,” Simon said.“We’ve just been down to business, concentrating on the season and putting into practice what we’ve been doing at training for the last 12 weeks.”Bolt, who retired from athletics last year, has previously tried out with clubs in Germany, South Africa and Norway to no avail.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Since retiring from athletics last year, Usain Bolt has been pursuing his dream of becoming a professional footballer © AFP/File / PETER PARKSSYDNEY, Australia, Oct 18 – Sprint superstar Usain Bolt has turned down a contract from Maltese champions Valletta and will remain in Australia to pursue his dream of becoming a professional footballer, his agent said Thursday.The eight-time Olympic champion has been on trial with A-League club the Central Coast Mariners since arriving Down Under in August.last_img read more

  • Exclusive – Kiely: West Brom star Berahino must deliver to back up own hype

    first_imgFormer West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Dean Kiely has claimed Saido Berahino must back up his own hype by delivering on a regular basis.The 21-year-old has netted 14 times for the Baggies this season, but suggested his burgeoning career may lie elsewhere next season after revealing he hopes to move “on to bigger things”.Liverpool and Tottenham have been linked with a move for Berahino’s services, but Kiely warned the England under-21 international is not the “finished article”.“It’s ok saying it, but you’ve got to deliver,” Kiely told talkSPORT’s Weekend Sports Breakfast. “He’s obviously had a good start to date.“I heard [Tottenham manager Mauricio] Pochettino talk about [Harry] Kane and in my time at the club, Alan Irvine, Steve Clark, Roy Hodgson all said Saido would progress into a very good player but it’s all about learning and getting better.“There is always the thing with young English strikers that they’re not the finished article. They show that they could be in and around the England squad and set the Premier League alight for a long, long time.“Certainly for Saido, there are little issues that you read about and you sort of sigh a little bit. Monday to Friday is about training and about getting better. Saturday and Sunday is game time so go and score the goals and that’s the only way your stock value increases.”And Kiely added that the role of social media within football means matters can no longer be kept private in a club’s dressing room, after Berahino surprised his club with his comments.“When I played if anyone got big for their boots then nobody would see it on Twitter 30 seconds later,” he added.“It always stayed in house; it always stayed in the dressing room and got sorted out.“It’s very open in everyone’s faces and everyone can have an opinion on it. But certainly the responsibility lies with the player.”last_img read more
