World Cup 2019: Mark Waugh picks Kohli, Buttler, Warner as his top 3

first_imgFormer Australia batsman Mark Waugh has picked the top three batsmen he would be looking forward to in the upcoming World Cup beginning on May 30 in England and Wales.The batsman which Waugh picked was India skipper Virat Kohli. “Definitely Virat Kohli,” Waugh told cricket.com.au. “He’s No.1.”Kohli, regarded by many as the greatest ODI player ever, will be playing in his third World Cup and would be rearing to go and lead the team to title victory.England’s hard-hitting batsman Jos Buttler was Waugh’s second choice. “Jos Buttler, I’d have him at No.2 in the top three,” he said.Buttler has been in amazing form in the last four years, not only in ODIs but all three formats of the game. Earlier this month, he smashed a 50-ball century against Pakistan in Southampton after taking the West Indies’ attack apart for 150 from just 77 balls in February.The third batsman on Waugh’s list was David Warner.”Aaron Finch at his best is right up there, so is David Warner,” said Waugh. “I’ll go with David Warner.”Warner, who made a comeback to cricket after serving a one-year ban for his involvement in the Sandpaper Gate, has been in tremendous form off late. In the IPL 2019, he scored 692 runs in 12 matches he played for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Warner last played an ODI for Australia 18 months ago, Waugh is expecting fireworks from the swashbuckling opener.The World Cup will begin with the opening match between hosts England and South Africa on May 30.advertisementAlso Read | Unfancied Sri Lanka head to World Cup 2019 with hope for miracleAlso Read | We can change some perceptions: Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza ahead of World Cup 2019Also Seelast_img read more

She said Mulvihill and a co-worker, Jason Kovach, drove to the area and used a flashlight to look for a package taped to a power pole.Kovach, who was called as a witness, testified that he armed with an aluminum baseball bat that Mulvihill had given him. They saw some rustling in the bushes, then noticed what looked like a someone lying in a prone position with a rifle pointed at them, he said.”Greg yelled `gun!”’ Kovach testified.The witness said shots rang out and he and Mulvihill took off running back toward their car.As Mulvihill drove away, he told Kovach, “I think I’ve been shot,” the witness testified.Kovach called 911 and told a dispatcher, “My friend has just been shot. He’s bleeding pretty bad.”The witness said a gunman was hiding in the bushes and was wearing camouflage.Related Link: Judge to hear pretrial motions against woman, gunman accused in plot to murder her husbandAccording to Breton, Mulvihill was shot under the armpit but thought he took a bullet in the back.The prosecutor said Mulvihill was trying to reclaim his life after Lovejoy had made claims that he had molested their young son and sexually abused her. The couple had been separated since July 2014 and were in the final stages of completing their divorce, Breton said.Carlsbad police determined that the phone used to call Mulvihill was purchased by Lovejoy, and feces found in the bushes at the scene of the shooting were traced to McDavid, the prosecutor said.Investigators found a multitude of guns and a silencer in McDavid’s garage, and a “blast bag” containing seven spent shell casings, Breton told the jury.The prosecutor said Mulvihill was three weeks away from receiving a $20,000 settlement from Lovejoy as part of the divorce and was set to share custody of their son.McDavid’s attorney, Ricky Crawford, said his client was a trained marksman and former Marine who fired his rifle only after he heard someone yell “I have a gun!””If Weldon McDavid wanted to kill someone with his skill set, he would have done so,” Crawford told the jury. “That was not his intent.”Crawford said Lovejoy — whom he met when she took shooting lessons at a gun range where he worked — told him that she had been trying for years to get someone to do something about her estranged husband allegedly abusing their child.If someone showed up to a meeting to get information about the situation, he must be guilty, McDavid thought, according to his attorney.”He (McDavid) was never asked to perform a violent act,” Crawford said. “He never agreed to do so. He was never offered money.”Brad Patton, Lovejoy’s attorney, said his client had taken out a temporary restraining order against Mulvihill because she claimed he was abusing her and their son.After the restraining order elapsed, Lovejoy still had concerns about her estranged husband but “at no time was there a discussion/conspiracy to murder her husband,” Patton told the jury.McDavid faces 50 years to life behind bars if convicted, and Lovejoy could be sentenced to 25 years to life if she’s found guilty.

Man arrested after attacking soldier in Paris

first_imgAn assailant attacked a soldier on a counter-terrorism patrol in Paris on Friday, France’s armed forces minister said, the latest in a series of strikes targetting troops protecting transport hubs and tourist sites.The assailant was wrestled to the ground before being detained. The soldier, part of Operation Sentinel, a force deployed in the wake of Islamist attacks was unhurt in the incident.French media reported he was armed with a knife.It happened at the Chatelet subway station, a busy central hub for the metro and the suburban RER rail network that carries commuters into the capital from the capital’s sprawling suburbs.“The man was arrested,” Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly told Europe 1 radio shortly after the attack. She said she had no further details on the assailant or his motives.France announced on Thursday it was revamping Sentinel to make it a more mobile force whose movements were less predictable. But ministers said it numbers would not be reduced.Islamist militants have killed more than 230 people in a wave of attacks on French soil since early 2015.French war planes have carried out bombing raids against Islamic State strongholds in Syria and Iraq and the militant group has urged its followers to target France.French media said the aggressor shouted references to Islamic State as he attacked the soldier.last_img read more

9 Candidates File For June 30 Special Election To Fill Farenthold Seat

first_imgFacebookU.S. Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Corpus Christi.Nine candidates have filed for the June 30 special election to finish former U.S. Rep. Blake Farenthold‘s term, according to the secretary of state’s office. The deadline was 5 p.m. Friday. As expected, the group includes the four candidates who are currently in the May 22 runoffs for the November election: Democrats Raul “Roy” Barrera and Eric Holguin, as well as Republicans Bech Bruun and Michael Cloud. The other five candidates who filed for the special election are Democrat Mike Westergren, Republican Marty Perez, Independent Judith Cutright, Libertarian Daniel Tinus and Independent Christopher Suprun.Of the five non-runoff candidates, Suprun, who is from Dallas, is perhaps best known — he voted against Donald Trump at Texas’ Electoral College meeting following the 2016 presidential election. Westergren, meanwhile, is a Corpus Christi lawyer who unsuccesfully ran for Texas Supreme Court in 2016.Abbott announced the special election Tuesday, giving candidates only three days to file for the race to complete Farenthold’s term, which ends in January 2019. Early voting for the special election runs from June 13-26, and a runoff — which looks probable given the number of candidates — would likely take place in September at the latest. Farenthold, a Corpus Christi Republican, abruptly resigned earlier this month amid mounting scrutiny over the revelation last year that he used $84,000 from a taxpayer-funded account to settle a sexual harassment claim in 2015. On Wednesday, Abbott issued a letter to Farenthold demanding that he make good on his promise to repay the amount by putting it toward the cost of the special election. Abbott asked Farenthold to respond to the letter by Wednesday.Before the June 30 special election to finish Farenthold’s term, voters in the district will primary runoffs will take place on May 22 to determine Democratic and Republican nominees for the seat in the fall. The winner of that contest will serve a full term beginning in January 2019. Sharelast_img read more
