Reacting to Canadian Phil Lo Greco’s pointing to his family issues at a pre-fight promotional event here on Tuesday (30th of January), Amir Khan threw water at him causing a skirmish on-stage.

While referring to a tweet Khan sent to Anthony Joshua (in August 2017 concerning to his own marriage and Khan later apologized to the British heavyweight for sending it) Lo Greco said: “After the Canelo loss you went on a losing streak – family, wife, and then you go out and tweet to the heavyweight champion of the world. What is wrong with you, mate?”

Khan said that his opponent’s behavior would serve as motivation to give that guy a beating. The 31-year-old British, former world champion,  is scheduled to clash with 33-year-old former WBC International Welterweight Champion Phil Le Creco on 21st April in Liverpool.

ICC charges Jayasuriya in anti-corruption probe!

Published

on

DUBAI: Dashing former Sri Lankan batsman and ex-chief selector Sanath Jayasuriya has been charged for not cooperating with a match-fixing probe and concealing information, the International Cricket Council said today.
“The International Cricket Council (ICC) has charged Jayasuriya on two counts of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) and have given him 14 days to respond,” the ICC said in a statement.
Jayasuriya, 49, was reportedly asked to cooperate with an inquiry from ACU chief Alex Marshall who visited Sri Lanka last week.
“The charges include failure or refusal, without compelling justification, to cooperate with any investigation carried out by the ACU, including failure to provide accurately and completely any information and/or documentation requested by the ACU as part of such investigation,” the ICC said.
The other count included “obstructing or delaying any investigation that may be carried out by the ACU, including concealing, tampering with or destroying any documentation or other information that may be relevant to that investigation and/or that may be evidence or may lead to the discovery of evidence of corrupt conduct under the Anti-Corruption Code”.
The ICC’s ACU is acting on the lead given in a sting operation in a documentary by the Qatar-based Al Jazeera television earlier this year.
The documentary revealed how fixers rigged two Test matches between Sri Lanka and India in July last year and Sri Lanka versus Australia in August 2016.
Jayasuriya played 110 Tests, 445 one-day internationals and 31 Twenty20s for Sri Lanka and was also a former captain during his illustrious career between 1989-2011. He is also a former member of Sri Lanka’s parliament.

HYDERABAD: India was 80-1 at lunch in reply to West Indies’ first innings score of 311 on day two of the second and final cricket Test in Hyderabad on Friday.
Prithvi Shaw, on 52, and Cheteshwar Pujara, on 9, were batting at the break after Lokesh Rahul was bowled by Jason Holder for four. The hosts trail West Indies by 231 runs.
Earlier Umesh Yadav returned career-best figures of 6-88 to help bowl out the tourists early in the morning session.
India leads the two-match series 1-0.

Relevant: India paceman Umesh Yadav claimed six wickets to help dismiss West Indies for 311 after Roston Chase completed his century on day two of the second Test on Friday. Yadav returned career-best figures of 6-88 as the hosts bowled out the West Indies early in the morning session. The tourists survived 101.4 overs after electing to bat first in Hyderabad. Chase top-scored with a gritty 106 off 189 deliveries – his fourth Test century. The overnight batsman was finally bowled by Umesh after starting the day on 98. Umesh picked all the three wickets in the morning session after the West Indies, who trail the two-match series 1-0, started on 295-7. Umesh, who had lost his pace partner in debutant Shardul Thakur early on day one, was ably supported by left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav who claimed three wickets. Thakur suffered a groin strain in just his second over of the match and limped off the ground after bowling 10 deliveries. He was sent for scans and has not returned to the field since. The West Indies innings was largely built on the 104-run seventh-wicket stand between Chase and skipper Jason Holder, who made 52.
