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 “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.
