India players unhappy with coach Anil Kumble’s “overbearing” attitude

first_imgTeam India cricketers are apparently not very happy with Anil Kumble and they have complained to the Committee of Administrators (CoA) about the coach’s overbearing attitude.Sources told India Today that the players are unhappy with the fact that there was no freedom in the dressing room and insisted that the coach does enjoy cordial relations with the players. It appears Kumble does not enjoy the confidence of his players.WATCH FULL VIDEOThis is a startling development ahead of India’s Champions Trophy defense which commences on June 4 at Edgbaston with clash against arch-rivals Pakistan.Kumble was appointed coach for a one-year term by the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) comprising his former teammates Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman in 2016.The former leg-spinner took over and oversaw five successive series triumphs besides limited-overs series victories over New Zealand and England.Under Kumble’s watch, India were nearly unbeatable in the home Test season – losing only one of 13, winning 10 and drawing two. However, the BCCI initiated a hunt for a new coach and many felt it was because the board was unhappy with his role in salary negotiations for the players with the CoA.Since it is a volatile situation, the CoA is understood to play it carefully, especially as India are days away from the Champions Trophy.Back in 2007, Australian Greg Chappell’s tenure as India coach had come to an end following a public spat with Ganguly and complaints from several other senior cricketers. In the decade that followed, the likes of Tendulkar, Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh have spoken out about the tough times the team endured under Chappell.advertisementUnlike Chappell, however, Kumble, has delivered the results. Under his command, India have not lost any series and Chesteshwar Pujara, who was going through a slump midway into 2016, finished the last season as the most prolific of Test batsmen.The BCCI, in a press release issued on May 25, merely stated that a nominee of the CoA would oversee the process of appointing the next coach to ensure transparency.”To ensure a fair and completely transparent process, a nominee of the Committee of Administrators (CoA) will oversee the entire process along with the Cricket Advisory Committee.”The BCCI’s three-member advisory committee comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman will conduct interviews and seek presentations to select the best possible candidate to guide the team and take Indian Cricket forward.”Earlier, it was thought that the whole process was a mere formality and Kumble would indeed be retained. But if the players are unhappy with him, his position could weaken considerably.last_img read more

first_imgFlex Alert issued for California as heat wave reaches peak in San Diego County August 29, 2017 #ISO issues a #FlexAlert today, 8/29 to #ConserveEnergyfrom 2-9pm. More info & #energysavingtips at https://t.co/tu056Aqt2U #StayAlert pic.twitter.com/0b2loLsQFO— Flex Alert (@flexalert) August 29, 2017The California ISO issued a Flex Alert set to take effect Tuesday at 2 p.m. and extend until 9 p.m. During the voluntary alert period, residents were asked to turn off unnecessary lights, postpone using major appliances until after 9 p.m. and setting the air conditioning thermostat 78 degrees or higher. The hot spell, a byproduct of a “goliath” high-pressure system moving south from northern to southern Nevada, reached San Diego County’s deserts on Sunday.On Tuesday and Wednesday, record highs are expected in Chula Vista, Ramona and San Diego, forecasters said. Those in the east county should not expect the same rain that cooled things down Monday evening, as the location of the high-pressure system will decrease the chances of thunderstorm Tuesday and Wednesday.Due to the extreme heat, numerous public schools across the county will be on minimum-day schedules today, officials said.The weather should be slightly cooler from Thursday into the weekend, though temperatures will remain well above average for this time of year, the NWS advised.The agency reminded the public to never leave children, seniors or pets unattended in cars; to drink more water than usual and avoid alcohol, sugar and caffeine; to wear lightweight and light-colored clothing and wide-brimmed hats outdoors; and to take frequent rest breaks in shaded or air-conditioned environments. Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom center_img KUSI Newsroom, SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A Flex Alert was issued  and Schools across the county had minimum-day schedules Tuesday as the “unrelenting” heat wave that has sent temperatures soaring across San Diego County was expected to peak Tuesday.Record-setting temperatures are forecast in Chula Vista, Ramona and San Diego, with the high temperatures now expected to last into the end of the week, the NWS said. As a public safety measure, an excessive-heat warning for the county’s inland valleys, western foothills and deserts was extended through 10 p.m. Friday after it was initially slated to expire Wednesday. A less serious heat advisory will be in effect for local coastal communities over the same period.Several desert and inland-valley locales logged afternoon highs in the triple digits Monday, including 114 degrees in Ocotillo Wells, 111 in Borrego Springs, 110 in Valley Center, 104 in Campo and 105 in Ramona, according to meteorologists. The latter community tied its record high for the date, set in 1981. The maximum thermometer readings in a few other local areas, according to the National Weather Service, came close to topping the 100 mark — 99 degrees in El Cajon and San Pasqual Valley; 98 in Alpine; and 96 in Escondido. Clouds, thunderstorms and scattered showers cooled things off for many inland communities later in the afternoon Monday.Conditions were considerably more pleasant closer to the ocean, with temperatures ranging from the high 60s to high 70s near the waterfront, and up into the mid-80s a bit farther east.

Mans body washes ashore in Ocean Beach after witnesses report seeing man

first_img SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A man’s body washed ashore in Ocean Beach early Monday morning about three hours after witnesses reported that a man jumped off the pier, police said.Investigators believe the body that washed ashore was that of the man who jumped off the pier but were still working Monday morning to confirm that, San Diego police Sgt. Robert Hawkins said. It wasn’t immediately clear if the death was a suicide, an accident or something else.Witnesses reported the man jumping off the pier just after midnight, prompting an ultimately fruitless search of the water, Hawkins said. Lifeguards and police searched for the man in boats and from above on the pier and in helicopters.At 2:53 a.m., after emergency crews had already completed their initial search, a person flagged down police and pointed them toward a man’s body that washed ashore, Hawkins said. 10News reported that a witness told police the body was that of the man who jumped off the pier.Lifeguards and police were investigating the incident and the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office responded to take custody of the victim and determine the cause and manner of death.
