first_img Google+ Facebook Pinterest Fort Wayne-South Bend Bishop Kevin Rhoades issues statement about George Floyd death IndianaLocalNews WhatsApp Pinterest (Photo supplied/Fort Wayne-South Bend Catholic Diocese) Fort Wayne-South Bend Bishop Kevin Rhoades issued the following statement about the death of George Floyd and the violent protests that have followed:“I share the following sentiments of my brother U.S. Bishops: “We are broken-hearted, sickened, and outraged to watch another video of an African American man being killed before our very eyes.” The tragic and senseless death of George Floyd in Minneapolis last week, like that of Ahmaud Arbery this past February in Georgia, reminds us that the vile evil of racism still persists in our nation.Racism is a pervasive social evil that we must be committed to fighting and eradicating wherever we find it, in ourselves and in society. It is antithetical to our Christian faith which proclaims the dignity of every human person created in the image and likeness of God.In many cities across our nation, including in Fort Wayne and South Bend, people have gathered to rightly protest the killing of George Floyd and the injustices suffered by African-Americans in our country. Sadly, violence has broken out at protests in many places. Rioting and looting only cause further injustice. Violence solves nothing and causes further harm.Substantive changes are needed in our society to eradicate racism and racial injustice, beginning with a commitment to respect for the life and God-given dignity of every human person. Let us pray that God will heal our society and help our nation to put an end to the destructive evil of racism and an end to violence in our communities.I am asking our priests to offer the special ‘Mass for the Preservation of Peace and Justice’ on a day this week. Let us pray for the eternal repose of the soul of George Floyd, for his family, for all victims of racial injustice, and for the many good men and women in law enforcement who serve with honor and who respect the human dignity of all whom they serve.”Most Reverend Kevin C.

David Warner breaches 600-run mark in IPL 2017 after 848 in 2016

first_imgSunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner breached the 600-run mark in this year’s Indian Premier League as he scored a 65 not out against Gujarat Lions to guide his team to the playoffs on Saturday.The defending champions had a must-win game in hand and Warner stitched a 126-run partnership with Vijay Shankar to take Hyderabad through.Once again, Warner stood tall for his team after Hyderabad had lost Shikhar Dhawan and Moises Henriques early in chase of 155. The current Orange Cap holder has already scored 604 runs, including a century against Kolkata Knight Riders and four half-centuries.Last season as well, Warner had lead Sunrisers Hyderabad to the title, scoring a massive 848 runs on the way, falling only behind Virat Kohli’s 973 runs.This consistency from the captain has been the key to Hyderabad success but Warner said that the support he gets from the team helps him perform.”Shikhar got off to a flier but once he got out, I knew I had to play the anchor. To have the luxury to have guys come and rotate strike in the middle overs, we are very happy,” Warner said in the post-match presentation.Warner also mentioned that the wicket was tough to bat on.”With the way this wicket was, we knew this was going to be tough as the ball got older. When we lost two wickets, I was scratching my head but I spoke with Vijay. The ball was moving a bit initially,” Warner added.Warner seemed happy and relieved to have reached the playoffs and credited his bowlers for restricting Gujarat to 154 after a century-run opening stand between Dwayne Smith and Ishan Kishan.advertisement”It would have been a shame to miss out on the playoffs. They got to a flier and we were scratching our head. We tried to communicate after the first wicket,” Warner said about Rashid Khan’s picking up the first wicket of Dwayne Smith.”When we got couple of wickets we realized the wicket was slowing up. I told the bowlers to keep backing themselves to hit the hard length,” Warner continued.Warner also praised the performance of Mohammed Siraj, who got the man-of-match award for his 4/32, and said that India’s pace department looks strong at the moment.”Credit to Siraj for the way he bowled. He has been in an out for the last of couple of games. India are in a good stead as far as pace bowling is concerned. They have got some fantastic pace bowling names, from Bumrahs to Bhuvis to Umeshs to Ishants, the list just goes on. They keep executing their skills I think and as far as the guys in this team (Hyderabad) are concerned, they have my faith.”Warner said that from here on, they would only look be to be patient and keep executing their plans.”Obviously we are not worrying about the next few games. We could finish top two. We will take one game at a time. We have to wait patiently and execute our skills.”last_img read more

But what about at centre-half, the position where he made his name in junior football?“If you’re a Manchester City who really own possession, he could be a great centre-half. But for West Ham, he’s a No.4.“If he was at City he could play centre-half, like John Stones, 100 percent. If you’re possession based, you’ve got to be as good as a midfielder.“Even goalkeepers now, they need to be able to play a ball, have vision.” last_img read more
