Shreyas Iyer: I have ‘sealed’ number 4 spot in Indian batting order

first_imgShreyas IyerAdvertisement zijNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs6a00hWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Ecm( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 7eqvWould you ever consider trying this?😱7sjCan your students do this? 🌚yu2ieRoller skating! Powered by Firework Although India have a strong batting and bowling options, they have always struggled for the number 4 position. They have tried several batsmen like Ambati Rayudu, Vijay Shankar, Rishabh Pant, Manish Pandey and a few on that particular position but no one has really impressed apart from Shreyas Iyer who has done fairly well. Advertisement Shreyas IyerHe is confident that his consistent performances in the past one year will help him to cement his place in the most-debated number four position in white-ball cricket. Having tried many, India recalled the Mumbai batsman in the West Indies series after their semifinal loss to New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup.He justified his place in the West Indies series which earned him a place in their New Zealand tour earlier this year as well. Once again he showed his calibre and ended up being the highest run-getter with a hundred and two fifties in India’s 0-3 series whitewash. He amassed 217 runs – the most by an Indian in that place in a three-match bilateral series.Advertisement “If you have been playing for India at that position for a year now that means you have sealed it. There should be no more questions asked about it,” Shreyas Iyer said in an Instagram live session hosted by his IPL franchise Delhi Capitals. “When the debate was going on about No 4, performing at No 4 and completely sealing the position was really satisfying.”“But when you are playing for India, you need to be very much flexible at any position or whatever the team requires. I feel I can bat any position depending on the situation,” he again said.The young lad of Mumbai failed to make to the cut in the ICC Cricket World Cup squad. However, he was included in the Caribbean tour where his swashbuckling form left everyone amazed, including the captain Virat Kohli who later complimented Iyer saying he was “exactly the same” in his younger days.“It’s really a phenomenal feeling when he talks or compliments his teammates… He’s a role model for all the youngsters out there,” Iyer shared. “Whenever he goes out on the field it feels as if he’s playing his first game. He’s never tired, always energetic like a lion. You see a different body language when he enters the ground, something great to learn from him.”Not only this, he has impressed as a leader also while captaining Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League. He made his debut season in 2015 where he scored a whopping 439 runs while playing with a fractured index finger. He got the captaincy in the mid-way of the 2018 season from the veteran Gautam Gambhir and he led Delhi Capitals to their first playoffs in seven years in 2019 season as well.Keeping his free-flowing batting ability in mind, it wouldn’t be wrong saying that Shreyas Iyer can be a good choice for that place.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out MMAIndia.com Also, follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comALSO READ:Harbhajan Singh to begin his second innings with acting, shares movie posterRobin Uthappa reveals cricket was the only thing that probably kept him from ‘jumping off the balcony’ Advertisementlast_img read more

The Hidden World of Solar Hardware

first_img Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details. This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Roughly 2400 megawatts of new residential solar was deployed last year, the equivalent of 7.5 million 320-watt modules. That’s a big investment. Ever wonder what prevents all those panels from blowing away in a stiff breeze?Solar mounting hardware—the racks, clips, and bolts that keep solar modules in place—is a world all but invisible once the panels are installed. With any luck, homeowners will never have to worry about, or even see, the equipment over the 25-year-plus lifespan of their solar arrays. That’s what manufacturers and installers are banking on.To that end, the industry has developed a variety of mounting systems that keep modules in place on virtually any type of roof, even in high-wind regions like south Florida. When a rooftop arrays isn’t feasible, a ground-mounted array is another option.Hardware represents an estimated 3% of the overall cost of a residential solar array, according to data cited by EnergySage, a Boston-based firm that connects customers with solar installers. Hardware is the essential foundation of any installation, even if most homeowners are blissfully unaware of it.“In our experience, most people don’t really want to know or need to know about that,” says Thomas Tutor, a branch manager for Maine-based Revision Energy. “They trust us to install it well and use high quality equipment that we’re going to stand behind regardless. So we make sure we choose equipment we believe in.”Here’s a rundown on the variety of mounting options installers have to choose from.Most residential solar arrays go on the roof where they’re safely out of harm’s way. The Solar Energy Industry Association, a trade group, lists a dozen and a half manufacturers of solar mounting hardware at its website, so installers have lots of options when it comes to choosing… center_img Start Free Trial Already a member?

No. 3 Duke rolls past Miami

first_imgHis slump is over, and now No. 3 Duke hopes its slide is, too.The Blue Devils routed Miami 87-57 on Saturday behind 19 points and 10 rebounds from RJ Barrett and 19 points from fellow freshman Cameron Reddish.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesWith national player of the year candidate Zion Williamson sidelined for a third straight game with a mild right knee sprain, Duke (25-4, 13-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) never trailed and shot 57 percent to bounce back from its second loss in three games — which coincided with Williamson’s injury.“Everyone plays their part in the team and does their thing, but our focus right now is to get Zion healthy and get everyone healthy and feeling good,” White said. “Just trying to have everyone playing their best basketball by that point.

The Hurricanes trailed by 25 when he hit his only bucket.Anthony Lawrence and Ebuka Izundu scored 15 points each for the Hurricanes (12-16, 4-12). They have lost nine of 12 and haven’t won a road game in more than 12 months.“For the first time all season, I thought our emotions were maybe a little bit out of control,” coach Jim Larranaga said. “We couldn’t calm ourselves down to make a free throw or a shot or make a good pass or good decision.”BIG PICTUREMiami: Asking the depleted Hurricanes to snap their yearlong road losing streak at Cameron seemed like a tall order — even against a Duke team missing its headliner. Miami fell to 0-9 on the road this season, 0-8 in the conference and were playing four days after blowing a 10-point lead in the final 2 minutes of a loss at Wake Forest. It’s effectively come to this for the Hurricanes — either win at Virginia Tech next week, or carry their road slide into 2019-20.Duke: Barrett averages an ACC-best 23.3 points, has led the league in scoring virtually all season and has shouldered the scoring load in Williamson’s absence. Barrett entered averaging 24 points, eight rebounds and six assists while shooting 51 percent, and with his godfather — two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash — sitting behind the Duke bench, he finished three assists shy of his second triple-double in two weeks.“With Zion being out, everybody kind of gets the ball more, everybody has to make more plays,” Barrett said.ZION WATCHCoach Mike Krzyzewski says there is “no time pressure” on Williamson, adding that the star freshman and second-leading scorer in the ACC “hasn’t done anything with contact” since he was injured in the opening minute of a loss to North Carolina on Feb. 21. “We’re not in any hurry or whatever,” Krzyzewski said.UP NEXT Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting After Roy Williams falls and leaves, No. 5 UNC outlasts Clemson 1 dead, 3 injured in Quezon road crash Duke’s Jack White (41) reacts with the crowd following his 3-point basket against Miami during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in Durham, N.C., Saturday, March 2, 2019.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Men’s open

first_imgPrior to the start of the State of Origin series, the two captains of the men’s open teams Steve Roberts (New South Wales) and Daniel Withers (Queensland) shared their final thoughts.Steve Roberts on…The first game:“The nerves are starting to creep in but there is a good feeling amongst the boys. We are seeking redemption from the last time we played.”The 2012 series loss:“We’ve spoken more so about us and what we can do. I think we are masters of our own destiny. We talked about our attitude and getting that right.”The sky blue of New South Wales:“Whenever you put on a rep jersey, I always wear it with pride. That’s the feeling we are trying to distil in everyone within the team. It is up there with the fastest touch you will play, alongside the Trans-Tasman series. It is really exciting and the skill level out there will be on show.”Daniel Withers on…His team:“We are pumped and are really keen to go. We have got some really young guys who are just enthusiastic and are tearing at the bit to get out there and prove they are more than good enough.”Pressure of being defending champions and playing in Queensland:“At the end of the day you just have to take it as another game. For us it is about coming down tonight, turning up and make sure for 40 minutes we rip and tear, take care of a few things in our game plan and make the scoreboard in our favour.”Team’s preparation:“We had our last session a couple of weeks ago and it was incredibly sharp. I was probably the most sharpest session I’ve ever walked away from in my touch career. We are extremely excited and to see these young boys out there, and if they can bring their A-game, it will just be awesome.”State of Origin series:“You look at the rugby league guys and the New South Wales versus Queensland rivalry, nothing changes. It is probably the fastest game you will ever be involved in and to get out there, play at this level, against some of your mates and the best players in the world, there is no better stage to be running on.”There are plenty of ways to keep up-to-date with all of the latest results, news and information from the 2014 State of Origin.

He further stated that they will write to DCPs and Police Commissioner to seek details regarding spas operating in their respective jurisdiction. “We can conduct surprise check to know whether these spas are employing children,” Roop further said adding that they will also write civic bodies regarding the data.

PM to amp up ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ campaign

first_imgNew Delhi: Intensifying his ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ (I too am watchman)campaign, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on March 31 will interact with people, who have pledged their support to the campaign, from 500 places across the country. Speaking at a press conference here, senior BJP leader and Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the campaign has become a “people’s movement” as the ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ hashtag has been tweeted 20 lakh times and had 1680 crore impressions.Replying to a question if the campaign was a counter to Congress chief Rahul Gandhi’s ‘chowkidar chor hai’ (watchman is the thief) barb, he rejected the suggestion and asserted that Modi in his campaign for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls had projected himself as the “first servant” and ‘chowkidaar’ of the country. On Saturday, Modi had urged his supporters to take the ‘main bhai chowkidar’ (I too am watchman) pledge, saying he is not alone in the fight against graft and social evils. Following his appeal all BJP leaders, including party chief Amit Shah and Union ministers, prefixed the word ‘chowkidar’ to their names in their Twitter profile.last_img read more
