LFC defender Virgil Warns Messi and Barca After Champions League Defeat

Virgil van Dijk subtly warned Lionel Messi and Barcelona after Liverpool’s loss in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final. Barcelona won 3-0 at Nou Camp on Wednesday night, thanks to goals from Messi and Luis Suarez who put the La Liga champions under control. Liverpool produced a rousing performance, but their hard work was apparently cancelled by Messi’s two goals in the second half. However, Van Dijk seems to be hoping for an impressive comeback before the return leg at Anfield next week and says Messi “won the battle but not the war”.

ENG Try to find to clear up muddle before CWC 2019

Less than a month removed from the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, England is under pressure. Alex Hales’ removal from the preliminary squad has created a muddle, one they will need to clear up over the next couple of weeks, starting with the one-off ODI against Ireland in Malahide.

England will have the chance to try its reserves ahead of the tournament. Those include Jofra Archer, who recently became eligible to play, Chris Jordan and James Vince.

With Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow rested for the ODI, Ben Foakes will come in as the wicket-keeper batsman. Dawid Malan and Ben Duckett, who was added to the squad in place of Hales and the injured Sam Billings, will also be vying for CWC spots.

Standing opposite they are Ireland, who in their last ODI assignment tied a competitive five-match series against Afghanistan 2-2 in Dehradun.

The hosts will rely on the experienced trio of Paul Stirling, Kevin O’ Brien, and skipper William Porterfield. Andrew Balbirnie, their best batsman in the Afghanistan series, will be the lynchpin of their batting order.

The veteran duo of Tim Murtagh and Boyd Rankin will spearhead the pace attack, while George Dockrell and Andy McBrine complete the spin department.

Key players

Jofra Archer (England): The all-rounder will make his much-anticipated England debut, after a long wait of more than three years. Archer is a proven commodity in franchise T20 cricket, but can he replicate it at the international level?

Andrew Balbirnie (Ireland): Balbirnie had a highly successful series against Afghanistan, scoring 145* and 68. He also made 125 for Leinster Lighting in a List A fixture last week and will hope he can sustain that form.

Conditions

Passing showers have been forecast midway through the game, which might bring the DLS method into play. Three 330-plus totals have been notched up at this venue in the last three years, a state that might pique the interest of batsmen from both sides.

Squads

Ireland: William Porterfield (c), Andrew Balbirnie, George Dockrell, Josh Little, Andrew McBrine, Barry McCarthy, James McCollum, Tim Murtagh, Kevin O’Brien, Boyd Rankin, Paul Stirling, Stuart Thompson, Lorcan Tucker, Gary Wilson

England: Eoin Morgan (c), Jofra Archer, Dawid Malan, Ben Duckett, Ben Foakes, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, James Vince, David Willey, Mark Wood

Ashton Turner exposes shoulder injury cost him CWC spot

Ashton Turner, the middle-order player, has exposed a shoulder injury played a part in his lapse from the Aussies ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 team.

Ashton Turner exposes shoulder injury cost him CWC spot

The injury flared up during the Big Bash League late last year and has restricted Turner in the field and from bowling his off-spin. “I do understand I’m a little bit limited with my shoulder and that probably played a part in my omission,” Turner told foxsports.com.au.

Potentially not being able to bowl probably cost me an opportunity to play a few more games before they had to select the team.

On Boxing Day when I re-injured my shoulder, I thought that my season was over and I was going straight into surgery and wouldn’t play another game for months.

“The fact I was able to keep playing the Big Bash and still be on the selector’s radar as a batter was a surprise to me. Then, to pick me in the ODI squad and then to give me the opportunity to play a few games, probably exceeded my expectations.”

Turner, who scored a masterful 84 off 43 balls against India in Mohali, was in consideration for a World Cup spot after the knock. However, the return of Steve Smith in the middle order, coupled with his limitations due to the injury meant he was sidelined in the provisional squad.

Turner and Smith were playing for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL when the squad was announced – Turner went straight to Smith when he heard the news.

“The day that we found out, I went to him Smith straight away and said, ‘Well done, mate, for getting in the squad’ and he said, ‘Commiserations for not being in the squad,” Turner told Cricinfo.

The 26-year-old is now eyeing a return to the national side and hopes to impress during his tour of England with Australia A. He also has a surgery scheduled after that on the troublesome shoulder. “I’m going to have surgery in a couple of months,” he added.

“Missing out on the World Cup squad has only motivated me more to want to get back there because being a part of that Australian side was such a great experience. That’s where I want to be.”

Klopp Reveals What He said to the LFC Stars After Defeated by Barca in the Champions League

Former Liverpool player Luis Suarez gave the advantage to his team before Lionel Messi scored two goals in seven minutes to allow Barca to keep the advantage. Messi’s second free-kick – a superb free-kick – was his 600th goal on Barcelona. The return match will take place next Tuesday in Liverpool.

Asked what he had said to his players in the locker room after the defeat, Klopp replied, “I said I’m really proud of them, that I really liked the game.”They do not have to think about the next game against Barcelona, ​​we’re playing in Newcastle now, that’s our goal.” “We’re going to the hotel, we’re sleeping well, we get up in the morning, take a flight for us. Go home, and then we get ready for Newcastle.”Whatever happens, these boys, I could not be more proud of them. I know the result and people who have not seen the game will say strange things, we accept it easily.

“It’s just like they always hit in this kind of match, as they are brave in those moments. I just like it. ‘In the end, it’s still a 3-0 – but I’m thinking of the game – and that does not change. But that’s OK. Let’s go home and go play Newcastle. Klopp also praised Messi, “unstoppable,” whose last two goals seem to have sent Liverpool to a European exit. “In these moments, it is unstoppable,” added the boss of the Reds. “You cannot defend the free kick – what strikes.

How the teams stack up in ICC CWC 2019

With the top tournament on the near horizon, it’s time to look at the squads that will be competing for cricket’s top prize this English summer.  Cricket World Cup Final Tickets can be garbed from our global event ticket sales market.

Oldest Squad

How the teams stack up in ICC CWC 2019
How the teams stack up in ICC CWC 2019

While there isn’t much clarity on how the side will line up, Sri Lanka’s contingent of experienced older figures could be vital in ushering them past the group stages. With an average age of 29.9, they are the oldest squad competing for the trophy in this edition.

Seasoned pacers Lasith Malinga, 35, and Suranga Lakmal, 32, look likely to spearhead the bowling attack. Former captain Angelo Mathews, 31, was destined for a return after the side’s poor 50-over form in the absence of the talismanic all-rounder, and there’s a call-up for Jeevan Mendis too. The 36-year-old has not played ODI cricket since 2015, but an extra wise head in the dressing room might be key to revitalizing fortunes for the 1996 winners.

Youngest squad

How the teams stack up in ICC CWC 2019

The youngest squad at this summer’s CWC is that of Pakistan, where the average age is 27.3, followed closely by Afghanistan (27.4). Pakistan look set to unleash promising 19-year-old quicks Shaheen Shah Afridi and Mohammad Hasnain on the world’s biggest stage, while Afghanistan will look to exploit their youthful options with the two-pronged spin attack of 20-year-old Rashid Khan, the No.3-ranked bowler on the ICC ODI Bowling Rankings, and fellow tweaker Mujeeb Ur Rahman, who at 18, is the youngest player at the tournament.

Most capped

How the teams stack up in ICC CWC 2019
How the teams stack up in ICC CWC 2019

Although age might signal ample cricketing experience, it needn’t necessarily have come at the international level. India has the fourth youngest side in the tournament, but also the most capped squad, with a combined total of 1573 appearances, eclipsing the second-most capped team, Bangladesh, by a margin of 274.

Among India’s seniors is MS Dhoni, who has played 341 ODIs, and has still remarkably managed to maintain a batting average of 50.72. Virat Kohli, the captain, and No.1-ranked batsman on the ICC ODI Batting Rankings have 227 appearances to his name, and Rohit Sharma, ranked No.2, has 206 caps, forming a frightening combination.

Bangladesh, meanwhile, will look to draw on their experience as they push for their first CWC title. Mashrafe Mortaza (205 caps), Shakib Al Hasan (195 caps), Mushfiqur Rahim (201 caps), and Tamim Iqbal (189 caps), will know that this is probably their final shot at achieving greatness together.

Mushfiqur recently said that “having most experienced players in the team, this is the strongest World Cup team that Bangladesh has ever had,” and he might just be right.

Most hundreds

India has little to no competition here. With a team tally of 90 and a whopping 41 of those belonging to Kohli, India’s capacity for mammoth innings will certainly be of concern to their opposition. Rohit (22), Shikhar Dhawan (16), and Dhoni (10), also have multiple tons under their belts, but over-reliance on these veterans could be a pitfall.

Although New Zealand, South Africa, and India top England with their tally of centuries, it is the host nation that boasts the most centurions. Seven England players have reached three figures in ODIs, compared to five each for India, South Africa, and New Zealand, which is an indication of their strong batting depth.
Afghanistan and Sri Lanka are both lacking in the century department, with 12 apiece; West Indies’ Chris Gayle alone has more three-figure scorers (25) in ODIs than the two nations combined. That being said, Afghanistan only played their first ODI in 2009.

Most wickets

Taking wickets on hard, high-scoring tracks can be difficult, but English conditions might just give hope to those who are more skilled at getting the ball to nip around, and we have seen many a swing bowler achieve great successes on English shores.

Bangladesh and Sri Lanka’s squads sit atop the leaderboards for ODI wickets, with 829 and 815 respectively, and the onus will fall on the side’s veteran seamers. Mortaza, with 259 scalps in the format, will lead the line for Bangladesh, whilst Malinga, who has the most ODI wickets among all players in the tournament, with 322 scalps, still carries much of Sri Lanka’s bowling weight on his 35-year-old shoulders.
Aaron Finch’s Australia has the least ODI wickets, with 495. Left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc has 145 of those, while fellow fast bowlers Jhye Richardson, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Jason Behrendorff are all relatively inexperienced at the top level. Nathan Lyon is no stranger to the international arena, but exciting young leg-spinner Adam Zampa might be primed to undertake the Aussies’ main spinning role.

We have appointed a team of 42 men full of experience, a good number of the winning Grand Slam team are present and players who have returned from their injury.

We have created an excellent competition on the team and there are currently two players on the injured list that we could add to the team later, based on their recovery.

We were really impressed by Rhys and Owen. It’s been a long time since they were on our succession plan. It will be good to have them with us in a camp and see what they are capable of doing.

We are looking forward to meeting and having a hard summer of work ahead of us. We have planned it meticulously and plans have been in place for quite some time now. Looking back on the years 2011 and 2015, we were satisfied with our preparation. We hope to be able to take this into account this year and, hopefully, take advantage of it.
