Indian cricketers Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and team director Ravi Shastri on Monday paid tributes to veteran Sri Lankan batsman Kumar Sangakkara, who will be playing the final Test of his career in the second game of the three-match series which begins at the P. Sara Oval Stadium here on Thursday.India Test skipper Kohli said he would remember Sangakkara for the lovely human being that he is and the honour of playing alongside him over the years.Also read: No Sanga show in Galle “I am sure if a guy who is retiring from the game, I cannot connect to it but I can imagine the kind of emotions he might feel because this is something that he has probably done for the last 20 years day in and day out of everyday life. And, not to do that anymore would be a big shock for anyone,” Kohli said.Sangakkara has scored a whopping 12350 runs in 133 Tests. His 14-year career includes 38 centuries with his highest score being 319 against Bangladesh.Also read: High hopes for fitting end to Sangakkara’s career The Sri Lankan made his debut against South Africa at Galle, in July 20, 2000.He is a lovely person “He has been a wonderful player for Sri Lanka. A lot of left-handers really look up to him for the way he plays. His technique and the way he has scored runs all over the world, his numbers speak for themselves. He is a wonderful human being. He is a lovely person. I have had quite a few chats with him on the field and away from the field as well,” Kohli said.advertisement”I am actually glad that he is going to be playing his last few games against us because it is a special occasion for us to be a part of. Such a legend of the game retiring, as a young side it will be an honour for us to give him that respect in his last few Tests,” the 26-year-old added.”Hopefully he doesn’t score too many runs against us but I really wish him all the luck with his life after cricket. It has been wonderful to know such a great player and a great man.”He is unmatched for his consistency Ravi Shastri flipped back the years and hailed Sangakkara as one of the statesmen of the modern game.”I saw him from his first game. I was commentating on that game when he played and he is still around. He broke into being one of the top two or three players and he never got out of that. There might have been a one year or a six-month period where his form might have dipped. But otherwise, for sheer consistency, he is unmatched,” Shastri said.Elaborating further on what made the left-handed batsman so special, Shastri said, “His ability to adapt and concentrate and his ability to bat for long periods of time. He had a wide range of shots, understood his game well and obviously worked as hard as any you would get. Also, his simple ability to assess the conditions very quickly, be it England, Australia, South Africa, West Indies or Colombo made him very special.”I was fortunate enough to watch him play Rohit Sharma too joined in, wishing Sangakkara the best post his retirement.”He has been a stalwart of the game and played this game in true spirit. I was fortunate enough to watch him play closely many a times in my career. I would just like to wish him all the very best,” Sharma said.

The remainder of the squad will be selected by Cricket Australia’s (CA) National Selection Panel (NSP) later.Also read: England’s James Anderson ruled out of final Ashes Test CA Chief Executive Officer (CEO) James Sutherland said he was looking forward to the fixture which will again be played under lights but this time with a pink ball.”Congratulations to Mike again on his appointment as captain.

A defined jawline is often hailed as one of the key indicators to a youthful face.But from the age of 25 elastin and collagen levels drop at an alarming rate of around six per cent year, and our jawline begins to sag, which can add years to our appearance. While some turn to invasive surgeries such as face lifts, three industry experts have now shared their top tips to maintaining a sharp jawline the natural way – and the key is in starting early. 1. Creams won’t reverse but they can preventDr. Justine Hextall, Constultant Dermatologist on behalf of The Harley Medical Group, told Femail that regularly moisturising will help slow down the skin’s aging process, though it will not reverse it.‘It would be unlikely that applying a cream would immediately correct a sagging jawline,’ she said. ‘Although newer technologies allow for deeper penetration of topical preparations I am not aware of any cream that can truly firm skin after a few applications with lasting results.‘That said, serums and creams with anti-oxidants can protect skin and mitigate against the free radical damage from the effects of pollution and sun exposure amongst other things.‘So in effect they can protect against damage to the skin’s collagen and elastin over time, if used regularly.’2. Don’t underestimate the effect of your lifestyleDr. Julia Sevi, Medical Practitioner at Aesthetic Health highlighted the important of a healthy lifestyle.‘In the quest to preserve collagen and elastin there are key things to avoid and important positive lifestyle factors to pursue,’ she said.‘The biggest culprits are sunlight, smoking, pollution and stress which accelerate the decline of collagen and elastin and hence increase the appearance of sagging skin.’Sharing her advice on how best to protect you skin against exposure to these factors, she said: ‘Avoiding cigarette smoke and regular application of Factor 50 sunscreen even in winter, with the addition of a hat in summer, can minimize further damage. ‘We cannot avoid pollution but we can help protect against it by wearing antioxidant skincare and at night we should double cleanse and tone to ensure maximum removal of pollutants.‘Reducing chronic stress is an important factor in preserving collagen and healthy skin function.‘Positive lifestyle factors for saving sagging skin include getting eight hours sleep per night, good nutrition including adequate protein, antioxidants, vitamins A, B,C & D3, zinc and omega 3, taking regular exercise and considering hormone balance in an early menopause.’3. Meet with a skincare specialist‘The key is to meet with a skin care specialist and plan a treatment programme, that includes the best possible skin care regime for your skin.’ Dr. Justine told Femail.‘I am a believer in maintaining skin health and having a good skin care regime, healthy diet and having intermittent non-surgical interventions which a Dermatologist can advise on.’Justine revealed that many women are advised to remove fat from around their jaw, while others prefer to focus on stimulating existing collagen with radiofrequency treatment and micro-needling. 4. Start earlyCosmetic Surgeon Dr. Alex Karidis stressed the importance of starting a skincare routine early.‘From the age of 25 we lose about six per cent of our skin elastin yearly and I think it’s good to be aware of this,’ he said. ‘There are people that embrace professional non-surgical treatments early on in their life, from their thirties, and the idea is to prevent sagging rather than reversing the effects of ageing.’Explaining that many of his clients have avoided invasive treatments later on in life, he added: ‘I have found from my experience of 15 years that people who embrace professional devices are the ones who are delaying the need for further face treatments in later years.‘It is a regular programme that you have to maintain and if you stop it, you will lose the results you’ve worked for. ‘There are various ways you can stimulate the skin including light peels and LED treatments. There’s not one silver bullet that does everything, it’s a combination of everything,’ he concluded.Source

India’s Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane spent much-needed time out in the middle as he led India to a draw against West Indies A in the 3-day practice match in Antigua.Ajinkya Rahane, who opened the innings for India on Monday, scored 54 but batted out time as he faced 162 balls in the team’s 2nd innings at the Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua. Rahane stitched a 96-run stand for the 2nd wicket along with Hanuma Vihari who followed up his first innings 37 not out with a fine 64.Notably, Rahane was leading India A in the absence of Virat Kohli who was rested for the practice match due to a thumb injury he had picked up during the ODI series.Rahane had been struggling for form even after he began his maiden county stint with a hundred for Hampshire in May. The India vice-captain was not the best of form at the international level and the upcoming 2-Test series will be crucial to his future with the senior national team.Day 3. Let’s go #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/aCmZDMXA4OBCCI (@BCCI) August 19, 2019India declared on 188 for 5 in the second innings to have a go at West Indies A in the final session of Day 3 in Antigua. The likes of Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin who did not feature in the first innings got an opportunity to both bat and bowl in the 2nd innings for India.Interestingly, both Wriddhiman Saha, who is making a comeback after a long injury layoff, and Rishabh Pant got an opportunity to bat on Day 3. While Pant is expected to pip Saha for the wicketkeeper’s role in the first Test, it remains to be seen how the team management handles the Bengal wicketkeeper who is keen on getting back to his best.advertisementIn reply, West Indies A made 47 for 3 in 21 overs when both the captains decided to call the practice match a draw. Jasprit Bumrah, who went wicketkless in the first innings, picked up one while India’s premier spinners R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja entered the wicket column.Earlier in the Test, Cheteshwar Pujara’s hundred and Rohit Sharma’s well-paced half-century helped India post 297 for 5 decl. in the first innings. Pujara, who was in fine form in Australia earlier this year, looks set to continue his run-scoring ways in the West Indies.Pacers Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav along with Kuldeep Yadav shone in the first innings, picking up 3 wickets each to restrict West Indies to 181-all out.Rohit or Vihari? Will Kuldeep play?Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma has audtioned successfully for the middle-order role but he may have to sit out in the first Test if India decide to play Hanuma Vihari in the middle-order. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are certain to open the innings for India.It will also be interesting to see if India consider Kuldeep Yadav ahead of R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja for the 1st spinner’s role in the upcoming series.Virat Kohli is expected to return and lead the side as they are set to begin their World Test Championship campaign with the 2-Test series in West Indies from August 22.Also Read | Sourav Ganguly, Sanjay Manjrekar offer contrasting views on conflict of interest issue in BCCI meetAlso See:
England are relieved that Australia batsman Steve Smith is not seriously injured after being struck by a bouncer but will aim to exploit his absence in the third Ashes Test, skipper Joe Root said on Wednesday.A concussed Smith was ruled out of the third Test, starting at Headingley on Thursday, after being struck in the neck by a vicious bouncer from England paceman Jofra Archer.Root said the loss of Smith, who has scored 144, 142 and 92 in three innings so far, was similar to England missing paceman James Anderson who is unavailable after suffering a calf injury in the first Test.”We had the challenge of Jimmy going down four overs into a Test and had to manage without a replacement, so you get these swings within a big series… when you get your opportunity you’ve got to jump on it,” Root told reporters.”When you play against someone of (Smith’s) quality, you’re trying to find a number of different ways to get him out. The way that Jofra bowled in that spell… we felt like we were creating chances all the time.”But you never want to see someone go off injured. There was a lot of concern in our dressing room for his health and it’s great to see that he’s up and about.”England added Ollie Pope to their squad as a standby after fellow batsman Jason Roy was struck on the neck during training on Tuesday.”Jason has been monitored quite closely, as you’d expect. He’s undergone a couple of concussion Tests so far and scored really well, so as it stands I fully expect him to be fit and ready to play tomorrow,” Root said.advertisementAustralia lead the five-match series 1-0 after winning the first Test by 251 runs. The second Test was drawn.

Transfers Stoger backs Reus amid Milan links: ‘He is indispensable for any team’ Dejan Kalinic 13:52 22/2/2018 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments() Getty Images Transfers Milan Borussia Dortmund Bundesliga Serie A The attacker is linked with a switch to Serie A, but the BVB is eager to keep his German star Borussia Dortmund coach Peter Stoger labelled Marco Reus “indispensable” amid rumours linking the attacker is linked with a potential move to AC Milan.Reus, 28, has battled injuries throughout his career and underwent knee surgery last year, seeing him spend more than eight months on the sidelines before his return earlier in February.His goal helped Dortmund to a 1-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga on Sunday and, despite his injury troubles, the Germany international is once again drawing interest from clubs around Europe.

We speak to him constantly because he knows his body very well, because he knows how well he is, and because it is just as important to us as it is to him that he stays healthy.”So we will decide soon how we manage his role. It was always in our minds [that he would be rested], but if he feels well, he is indispensable for this team.”Reus has returned to make three appearances so far this season, having played just 24 times in 2016-17.But his return comes at a crucial point in the season for Dortmund. The club currently sit second in Bundesliga table and hold a slim 3-2 lead over Atalanta heading into Thursday’s second leg of their Europa League last-32 tie. And with U.S. international Christian Pulisic having struggled for form in recent weeks, Reus’ return to the side looks even more crucial for BVB, who face crucial Bundesliga clashes with RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt in early March.
