Only BCCI can answer why I didnt play IPL last year

first_imgJaipur: The BCCI had acted voluntarily while banning Steve Smith and David Warner from last edition of IPL on ball tampering charges and the former Australian captain said that only the Indian board can answer why it panned out that way. Cricket Australia’s one year ban was from international cricket and the duo were well within their rights to a play domestic T20 league like IPL but the richest cricket board in the world decided to impose their own sanctions. Smith, whose one-year ban ends on March 29 will be available for Rajasthan Royals’ first game on March 25 but it will depend on the condition of his elbow. “I am available for all the matches and BCCI has to answer that why I was not allowed to play earlier,” Smith took a dig at the BCCI during a promotional event on Friday. Speaking after the jersey launch ceremony, Smith said that he was looking forward for the tournament. “It is exciting to be back on field and I am looking forward to the tournament,” he said during an announcement. With his international ban set to end on March 29, Smith will be eyeing good IPL in order to make it to the World Cup squad.last_img read more

Credit: Whitney Wilson / Lantern photographerTime and change will surely show this weekend for the four seniors of the Ohio State field hockey team as they play their last two home games at Buckeye Varsity Field for senior weekend. As the season quickly approaches the long awaited tournament time, energy will be high as OSU (8-6, 4-2) faces off against No. 16 Northwestern (10-6, 3-3) on Friday and nonconference opponent California (9-5, 4-1) on Sunday. Coming off of their first win against Iowa on Sunday since 2010, the Buckeyes are moving forward toward with their eye on the Big Ten prize — especially the graduating players. Co-captains and seniors Peanut Johnson and Emma Royce said they look forward to wrapping up on a good note and expect everyone to truly give it their all. “I just want to leave with a good feeling,” Johnson said. “It’s the last two home games so everything’s sinking in, and I just definitely want to play the absolute best that I can”.Royce agrees, recalling her early years on the team when she gave her all for her older teammates.“I just remember when I was a freshman, sophomore, junior, having the feeling of wanting to give everything for those people who are about to leave,” Royce said. “So hopefully we see that extra push from them.”Northwestern’s strong season is being seen as welcome competition from the Buckeyes. OSU coach Anne Wilkinson said she looks for her team to stand up to the challenge. “I like our matchup with Northwestern because we usually have a really competitive game,” Wilkinson said. “We both have a lot at stake, it’s the Big Ten. If we can maintain possession and  finish our chances we’ll be all right.”The 19th-ranked Wildcats are coming off a shutout 3-0 victory against Michigan State on Sunday, leading with shots 25-1, and penalty corners 19-0. Their trek to Columbus on Friday will be their final Big Ten game of the season. Royce said she has no doubt that the Buckeyes are fully prepared both mentally and physically to successfully take on both the Wildcats and the Golden Bears this weekend. “Northwestern has a strong season every year, we’re by no means underestimating them,” Royce said. “But at the same time we have every faith that we’re going to come out with two wins this weekend.”The Buckeyes are set to face off against Northwestern on Friday at 3:30 p.m. and California at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.Senior spotlightPeanut Johnson, forward, Dayton, OhioTwo-time All-Big Ten selection Two-time second-team all-National Field Hockey Coaches Association West RegionHas started 56 of 69 career games with 33 goals and 20 assists for 86 pointsRanks ninth in the Big Ten in goals (nine)Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week (Sept. 16)Three times this year has had five points in a gameGoals in six games this year (OSU is 5-1 in those contests)Team captain in 2015Emma Royce, Back, London, England2013 Big Ten all-tournament teamTwo-time Big Ten preseason watch list choiceTwo-time team captainHas started 67 of 68 career gamesTeam leader this year with five assists13 goals and 12 assists in her career for 38 pointsFour multi-point games this year (OSU is 4-0 in those contests)Team captain in 2015Sydney Stype, goalkeeper, Upper Arlington, OhioThree-time Academic all-Big Ten (2012, 2013, 2014)Four-time NFHCA National Academic selection (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014)Four-time OSU scholar athlete (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014)Appeared in games during the 2012, 2013 and 2014 seasons.Annie VonderBrink, forward/midfield, Kettering, OhioAcademic all-Big Ten (2013)OSU scholar athlete (2012, 2013)NFHCA National Academic Squad (2012)Veteran of 40 career gamesTwo goals and two assists for six pointsScored this year in the season opener against Saint Louis. read more

An hour with OSU athletic director Gene Smith

Lantern sports editor Zack Meisel sat down for an exclusive interview with Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith last week to discuss a number of topics, including Big Ten expansion and compliance issues in college athletics. The following is an excerpt from the interview. Check back with The Lantern all quarter for more from Meisel’s interview with Smith. The Lantern: Are you sick of the word ‘expansion’ yet? Smith: No, not really. It’s funny, because I’m watching everybody else. We’re basically done for now. I don’t know if we’ll expand any more, I really don’t. It’s a possibility, but what’s interesting is watching the rest of the landscape with the WAC and the Mountain West, and there’s rumors about the SEC. TL: When you see the turmoil at programs like USC and North Carolina, what goes through your mind? GS: I feel for them. I’ve been there, as an athletic director, when I first came to Ohio State and actually had it at Arizona State. I was on the NCAA infractions committee, so I heard cases, Michigan’s case, Utah’s case, a whole bunch of them. So I feel for them, because at the end of the day, everyone’s trying to do what’s right. And there’s some things you can’t control. I don’t know their particular situations. But do we have some bad people in the business? No doubt. But 99 percent of our people are trying to do it the right way, and outside influences take them to where they are. TL: In the case of Georgia receiver A.J. Green the report was that he sold his own jersey. Can you at least see where he’s coming from, maybe feel for the kid? He knew he was wrong, but some of these kids — maybe it’s the situation they’re in? GS: See, I don’t. My thing is, if one of our kids really needs money and they’re in dire straits, they should have a relationship with their coach where they can share that. Then we find a way to help them. … I could give you countless stories where our kids have come to us and said, ‘I’ve got this problem.’ And so then we find a way to solve it. And there are ways to solve it. Philosophically, going to your point, should we be able to allow kids to sell jerseys or their likenesses and make money? I believe that, but I believe that money should be saved in an account for them for when they graduate. If you open that door and you allow every kid to monetize their persona, holy smokes. So I’m good with it if we said, ‘Whatever a kid’s jersey value is, you sell it, but you take a portion of that money because you have expenditures, you take the profit from it and put it in an account, if the kid graduates.’ I wouldn’t give it to them unless they graduate, they get the money. I’ve always said that that’s the way to go. TL: What was it like being named athletic director of the year by the Sports Business Journal? GS: It was funny, I was supposed to go on a vacation with my wife and we had three other couples we were going with. We were leaving on a Wednesday night, and I remember getting a call and they saw that I wasn’t coming. They invite six ADs to come and one of the six wins, it’s kind of like the Oscars. So I wasn’t going to go because I didn’t think I was going to win. I told the guy, ‘Look, I’m going on vacation with my wife.’ And he said, ‘Mr. Smith, I can’t tell you that you should be here, but I want to tell you that Sean McManus from CBS is going to provide the award and it’s probably to your advantage to be here.’ And I said, ‘OK, I think I get what you’re saying, but here’s my deal: If I tell my wife I’m going to be a day late to this vacation spot, you’ve got my back, right?’ And he said, ‘No problem, she’ll be happy that you did this.’ That’s exactly how it went. One, I was moved in that moment. I was there in front of those people and I felt great that I was able to represent the department and get that award because I’m just standing on the shoulders of a whole lot of people who do a whole lot of work. TL: And it made the vacation even better. GS: It made the vacation a whole lot better because I was able to take the trophy with me. And I had my buddies down there, helping me, protecting my back. TL: What, if any, major flaws does the Ohio State athletic department still have that you’re working on? GS: A lot of our stuff is in facilities. My predecessor, Andy (Geiger), did an unbelievable job with the ‘Shoe, the Schott, Bill Davis Stadium, Jesse Owens. Now, we have to take all of those other sports and get their facilities up to par. We just finished field hockey. I remember our first game here in ’05, I was standing on the practice field with Tressel one evening, it was getting dark, and we didn’t have lights out there. So, that’s always been on my to-do list, is to get what we just completed done. So it’s a lot of little projects that are highly important. We’ve got the boathouse that’ll be done in December, tennis we have one of the top three tennis programs in the country, which most people are surprised at, and they have cracks on their court with water coming up the cracks. I hope to have all this done in a short period of time. Of all of those sports with facilities where we want our kids safe and they’re representative of the quality of that team, field hockey just got done and field hockey was playing on a compacted, 10-year-old artificial turf that I know was killing their knees. Anyway, that’s our biggest challenge is getting those facilities done. And then the other piece is staying on the cutting edge, that allows us to continue to communicate with our fans and recruit. This past year, we had 422,000 Facebook views, largest in the country, 51 million hits on our website. We’re setting up a training session for our coaches and some of our staff on Twitter on how to properly use Twitter and maximize our opportunities. That type of stuff is not a flaw as much as it is staying — keeping that focus — staying on the cutting edge. Our core leadership is in our coaching staff, and we have great coaches, so I don’t see many flaws. read more

Urban Meyer event canceled due to unscheduled surgery

While members of the Ohio State football team continue the national championship celebration, an unexpected surgery for coach Urban Meyer prompted the cancellation of at least one event.Meyer’s scheduled appearance at the University of Findlay on Wednesday evening was cancelled due to a “previously unscheduled surgery,” a team spokesman told The Lantern on Wednesday.Reports surfaced Wednesday afternoon that the surgery was an emergency appendectomy.The spokesman said that Meyer could be out of the hospital sometime Wednesday, but there is a chance he will be held overnight.Meyer is scheduled to throw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium on Friday night. The spokesman said as of Wednesday morning, the plans are still intact for Meyer’s trip to New York.This is the second consecutive spring in which Meyer underwent a minor procedure. Last March, he had minor brain surgery to drain a cyst. He returned to practice the next day after that procedure.Meyer’s health problems when he was coaching at the University of Florida were well-documented as well, culminating in him resigning after the 2010 season. read more

Baseball Ohio State faces crucial Big Ten road test against Maryland

Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorThis weekend poses the red-hot Ohio State baseball team with an opportunity to climb the Big Ten ladder and produce fireworks with its bats.Ohio State (21-17, 4-5 Big Ten) will travel to take on Maryland (18-19, 5-4 Big Ten) in a pivotal series for conference positioning. The Buckeyes will take their recent winning ways and big bats up against the struggling Terrapins. “We got a big series in Maryland this weekend to climb the standings in the Big Ten,” Ohio State head coach Greg Beals said. In order to improve their Big Ten record, the Buckeyes will look to keep their bats hot against a Maryland squad susceptible to the long ball.The Terrapins have surrendered 42 home runs this season; the weekend starters have contributed 15 to this total. The Buckeyes have launched 36 home runs on the season. Over the past six games, Ohio State has hit a homer eight times and scored an average of 7.33 runs per contest.“Everybody is just calm and relaxed right now, and it is a really good feeling going into the weekend,” Ohio State junior right fielder Dominic Canzone said. Maryland will come into the weekend on a two-game losing streak. The Terrapins will turn to their best pitcher on Friday to try to get out of their recent rut. Senior pitcher Hunter Parsons has excelled for Maryland. The Friday starter has a 2.95 ERA and has averaged more than seven innings pitched per start. Parsons has a 6-2 record on the season and a 3.06 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Senior John Murphy has made a team-high 16 appearances and has a 3.66 ERA with seven saves. He has struck out 31 batters in only 19.2 innings of work. On the offensive side, the Terrapins have struggled to find consistent hitting. The team is hitting a combined .235 batting average, while having only one player hitting above .275. Maryland freshman first baseman Maxwell Costes has carried the torch for the offense. Costes leads the team with a .281 batting average, and also has 30 RBI and six home runs on the year. Maryland, like Ohio State, has the ability to hit the long ball. The Terrapins have hit 37 home runs, but the Ohio State pitching staff has only allowed 22 home runs on the year. The Buckeyes have settled in these past six games. After dropping five consecutive games, they have responded by winning five of their past six. “I think we are moving in the right direction, and just keep that momentum going as much as we can,” redshirt senior senior pitcher Thomas Waning said. Ohio State will open the series against Maryland Friday at 6:30 p.m. in College Park, Maryland. This will be followed by a 2 p.m. game Saturday and a 1 p.m. finale on Sunday. read more
