Man City rebounded well from a rough first half, dealing PSG a significant blow as both well-funded powers seek a first Champions League title. Even by the standards of Paris Saint-Germain, this was a spectacular meltdown. At halftime of Wednesday’s Champions League semifinal first leg it led and had dominated to such an extent that Manchester City was probably relieved to go into the dressing room only 1-0 down. But Man City pressed harder and higher in the second half and PSG disintegrated. A 2-1 win doesn’t guarantee Man City’s progress to a first Champions League final, but it has a clear advantage, not just in terms of the score line but in the way PSG lost discipline. City and PSG were two clubs who emerged relatively unscathed from the Super League fiasco. City did sign up, but it never seemed entirely committed and was the first club formally to withdraw. PSG, meanwhile, refused the invitation and its president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, wound up as the new chairman of the … [Read more...] about Man City persists, PSG collapses in telling Champions League semifinal first leg

WELLINGTON • Former assistant Ian Foster was yesterday named the All Blacks' new head coach, as the three-time Rugby World Cup winners opted for continuity despite a disappointing semi-final exit at the latest edition in Japan. He was the preferred candidate of departing coach Steve Hansen, under whom he worked for eight years, and was always the favourite to take over and rebuild the side. The 54-year-old Foster beat main rival Scott Robertson to the job, despite the Crusaders coach winning three straight Super Rugby titles. New Zealand Rugby chairman Brent Impey hailed Hansen's successor as someone who would bring "fresh energy", saying: "He brings world-class international experience to the role, an incredibly strong coaching team, and we think he'll do an outstanding job." Foster, who signed a two-year contract, said he was humbled to take over one of the most-coveted roles in rugby. He added: "I feel truly privileged and honoured to be given this opportunity and I can't … [Read more...] about New coach Foster to give All Blacks ‘fresh energy’
Amazon Prime Day 2021 isn’t set to arrive until June, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start embracing what we expect to be the retailer’s most exciting event to date with a little bit of harmless speculation. For starters, it’s safe to assume that Prime Day 2021 will see more discounts than ever before. How do we know? Because each Prime Day is bigger and better than the last — duh! So, Prime Day 2021. What’s it about? Well, it’s far too early to say with absolute certainty what we’ll see. Heck, we don’t even know for certain when it will be (though we have a pretty good idea — more on that in a bit). One thing is almost for certain, though: While Amazon will be at the heart of Prime Day 2021, other retailers will also be throwing their hats into the ring. What happened on Prime Day 2020? Before we can look forward to Prime Day 2021, we first need to look back to Prime Day 2020 — an anomaly in the history of the event. Amazon was left with no choice but to reschedule the … [Read more...] about Prime Day Deals 2021: When is it, and what can we expect?
New Delhi [India], April 29 (ANI): Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni feels that players are taking more responsibility this season after registering their fifth consecutive win of the season. CSK reached the top of the points table with a seven-wicket win over SunRisers Hyderabad here at the Arun Jaitley Stadium. CSK has 10 points in their six games so far. A late onslaught from Kane Williamson (26*) and fifties from Manish Pandey (61) and Warner guided SRH to 171/3 in their allotted 20 overs. In reply, Ruturaj Gaikwad's blistering 75-run knock and a fifty from Faf du Plessis (56) helped CSK to chase the target with nine balls to spare. "The batting performance was superb, but that doesn't mean the bowling was not good. It was a surprisingly good Delhi wicket, there was no dew. Brilliant opening partnership. I think addressing the problem [what's been different for CSK this year?] The earlier you settle the issue, the better it is. The fact was 5-6 months we were out … [Read more...] about IPL 2021: Players have taken up more responsibility this year, says Dhoni
