But despite the fanfare surrounding Standhardinger’s entry to San Miguel, Austria is still putting a premium on team chemistry.“We still don’t know yet what we could have from him since he’s going to Hong Kong, but once he joins us, we’re expecting great things from him. The important thing here and what we’re after for is to have good chemistry. It took us a long time to have that and now that we do, it’s just a matter of blending him in to our team,” he said.But based on what Austria had seen so far, it looks like chemistry issues won’t be that much of a problem.“Based on what we saw, he’s a good fit for our team. He’s really a hardworker and that’s what we like from him. He could give a lot of help for our team because you know, that’s what we’re always aiming for. We’re always looking for excellence.”ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.

World Cup: Lloyd, Hussain back India

first_imgLegendary West Indian captain Clive Lloyd on Friday said the current Indian ODI squad is well equipped to win the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup. “India is very good side. Their batting is strong. Also they are currently No 1 Test side in the world,” Lloyd, who led West Indies to the Cup glory in its 1975 and ’79 editions, told Headlines Today, as former greats such as Kapil Dev, Arjun Ranatunga, Sourav Ganguly and Md Azaharuddin sat to review the Cup preparations of different teams, along with cricket analyst Charu Sharma and former cricketer Nikhil Chopra. Former England captain Nasser Hussain, while favouring India and Sri Lanka, also echoed the views of Lloyd, who cautioned against complacency on the fielding front, saying a good fielding side that stops the run flow wins games in an ODI. “Obviously India are a very good side. They have superstar names,” Hussain said, adding, no one should write off the Aussies, despite the Ashes loss.  While former Pakistan captain Aamer Sohail believed his national team was better prepared compared to 1992, when Imran Khan made his country the world champions, Kapil Dev said it’s an open WC. “Everyone is on an equal footing,” said Sourav Ganguly.last_img read more

Stankovic Juve are playing in another league

first_imgFormer Inter Milan midfielder Dejan Stankovic is impressed with the current side but suggested Juventus are in the world of their own.The Nerazzurri have won all seven games in all competitions put together, making up for a poor start to the season. However, Stankovic thinks other Serie A teams may settle for second fiddle at the end.“It’s a good streak, I expected it sooner or later,” Stankovic told Sky.“It’s a well-constructed squad that is improving game-by-game, and which has emerged more compact from the difficulties.“Mauro Icardi is a great player, and he’s getting better and more clinical as the years’ pass.Romelu Lukaku, Serie A, Inter MilanCapello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The former Italian manager believes Romelu Lukaku is perfectly suited for Antonio Conte’s Internazionale Milan in the Serie A.“The squad has changed and it’s important to have a deep bench. Thanks to that quality, the substitutions are always good.“All the signings were good, and just as I expected [Matteo] Politano was a good step. I’m expecting more from [Roberto] Gagliardini though, he’s an important player who can give more.“The Scudetto? I’m a realist, and Juventus are playing in another league, everyone else is playing for second place.“As for the derby, these games are unique and I can’t make a prediction. It’ll be a good game because Milan have woken up.“I hope Inter win, but it’ll be a tough game.”last_img read more
