Ithaca City School District delays start

first_imgITHACA (WBNG) — Students in the Ithaca City School District will be starting school a week later than originally planned. This comes after the Board of Education decided Tuesday to push the start date for classes from September 8th & 9th to September 14th. Not only that, but officials say students will no longer start the school year in person, but will be learning remotely with tentative plans to begin in person instruction on October 5th. center_img The move is in response to concerns over the spread of the coronavirus and delays in district construction projects caused by supply chain issues related to the virus.last_img

Pakistan late strikes overcome Bravo’s 116

first_imgPAKISTAN bowlers held their nerve to seize a 56-run win over West Indies after an intense, attritional fifth day in Dubai, in which Darren Bravo led his side’s plucky tilt at a come-from-behind victory.Bravo scored a 249-ball 116, taking his side to within 83 runs of the target, before Pakistan finally overcame his dogged resistance to wrest back a match that had looked like slipping away. They wrapped it up with 12 overs remaining, to register a memorable win in their 400th Test.For much of the final day, Bravo proved to be an immovable object at the centre of the Dubai cricket ground. He carried forward his fine form and doughty resistance from the first innings, showing the application and patience to rebuff whatever Pakistan threw at him. His forward defensive shots, of which there were many, were perfectly middled and he was equally convincing when leaving the ball. On occasions, he unfurled one of his crisp drives or cuts to the off-side boundary, but his knock was more about grit than flair.Bravo began the day batting on 26 off 67, with West Indies on 95 for 2, still 251 runs short of their target. After seeing Marlon Samuels depart off the first ball of the day and losing Jermaine Blackwood inside the first hour, Bravo shared a fighting 77-run fifth-wicket stand with Roston Chase and continued his vigil well after Chase departed.As West Indies pursued what would have been their second-highest successful chase, more and more they came to depend on Bravo. He shouldered that burden until almost an hour into the final session. But with 83 runs to win and four wickets in hand, he played a tired drive off Yasir Shah, managing only to squirt the ball back towards the bowler, whose sensational diving catch was the last, decisive turn on a gripping final day.Yet West Indies had made Pakistan work much harder for the win than they would have expected after a promising start to the day. After Pakistan’s demoralising collapse on the previous day, Amir’s first-ball wicket was just the tonic they needed.It was a rather unremarkable delivery, bowled from around the wicket, pitching on a good length well outside off and angling in. Samuels was drawn into poking at a ball he could easily have left and a thin edge was gleefully accepted by Sarfraz Ahmed behind the stumps.Blackwood, coming in at No.5, played a scratchy knock, fishing at balls outside off, with the bat well away from the body. He got away with numerous plays and misses against Amir, as well as a checked drive off a slower ball that fell between mid-off and mid-on. But it was to spin that he perished, when he played a length ball from Mohammad Nawaz from deep in his crease and was wrapped on the pads in front of leg stump.Chase then joined Bravo for a partnership that steadily revived West Indies and unsettled Pakistan over the course of 28.2 overs of stubborn fight.Wahab and Sohail Khan tested the batsmen with occasional bouncers and yorkers, Amir bowled probing lines, the spinners plugged away – but Bravo and Chase looked untroubled through it all.By the 71st over, Chase’s confidence had grown to the extent that he dared to drive Yasir against the turn for a boundary through midwicket. Perhaps that was when confidence became overconfidence. Next ball, Yasir flighted another one pitching outside leg and Chase attempted the same shot again. This time the ball turned past his outside edge to crash into leg stump.Two balls later, Wahab yorked Shane Dowrich to hit his middle and off stumps, sending him back for a first-ball duck. West Indies were now reeling at 194 for 6, and Pakistan had a firm grip on proceedings again.But Bravo was still at the crease and he had his captain Jason Holder for company. The two men saw the side through to dinner, leaving 114 to win in the final session. They continued to chip away at the target after the resumption, and Pakistan’s anxiety gradually built. When Amir wrapped Holder on the front pad with a delivery that appeared to be sliding down, Pakistan’s review of the not-out decision seemed more out of desperation than expectation. Hawk-Eye gave them no respite.Another hopeful review followed when Yasir’s appeal for a catch at slip was turned down. The ball had gone off Holder’s pad. Pakistan had no reviews remaining. West Indies were 84 runs from victory. The tension was mounting.Two balls later, Yasir flew to his left to take the return catch of Bravo that decisively swung the match in Pakistan’s favour. West Indies’ last three wickets added 26 runs, but the sting had gone out of the contest, and a pair of run-outs handed Pakistan a hard-fought win.last_img read more

Former Indian cricketer feels this player is our best spin bowler – not R…

Powered by Firework Following the disastrous conclusion of the New Zealand tour- several questions have been raised on the form of the batting order of Team India. On the other hand, the bowlers did a comparatively better job- Ishant Sharma picking a gfive wicket haul, Jasprit Bumrah ending his wicket drought and of course, the triple strike from Ravichandran Ashwin in the first Test at Basin Reserve. The veteran stalwart is revered as one of the greatest spinners in the world, but retired international Dilip Doshi has brought in another name. The former leg spinner believes its not Ashwin, but India’s best spin bowler is Ravindra Jadeja!Advertisement Image Courtesy: PTIJadeja, who is set to return to international duty in the upcoming 3 match One Day International series against South Africa starting tomorrow, was not allowed by BCCI to take part in the currently ongoing Ranji Trophy final between Saurashtra and Bengal.Dilip Doshi, who secured over 100 wickets in his Test cricket career spanning 33 matches, has put his fellow Gujarati all rounder over the rest of his compatriots in the spin bowling department.Advertisement In a recent interview with Times of India, Doshi hailed Jadeja over Ashwin, the latter whom he thinks hasn’t had much improvement in the recent years.“I still think Jadeja is the best spinner in this side. Ashwin has not improved over the years.” Doshi told reporters.Advertisement Since his international debut back in 2009, Jadeja has earned 49 Test and 165 ODI wickets. In the stunning 5-0 T20 win over the Kiwis last month, he earned 4 wickets, and also secured 2 in the ODI series.Ashwin on the other hand, has fallen down the selection order in limited overs cricket, making his last ODI and T20 appearances in 2017. While acknowledging the 33 year old’s composure with the ball, Doshi feels Ashwin hasn’t reached the level he was supposed to.The 72 year old continued: “I agree he (Ashwin) is steady, but I feel he has not improved to a level where he should have been for whatever reason it may be.” Jadeja will join up with the Men in Blue to take on the Proteas in the ODI series starting this Thursday in Dharamshala.Also read-Read the hilarious social media banter between RCB teammates AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli Advertisementlast_img read more
