Alastair Cook is daring to eye another Edgbaston tour de force after proving he is at least as effective against the pink ball as the red. Cook (153 not out) was at the crease throughout the first day of England's inaugural floodlit Test, sharing a third-wicket stand of 248 with Joe Root (136) in a stumps total of 348 for three against West Indies.
England play their first day-night Test match this week, against the West Indies at Edgbaston. Sure, there have been four previous day-nighters, but this is the first in England and the first with the Duke ball. Nobody’s quite sure what to expect. Day-night Test cricket is still very much in its infancy, but some people think that it could be the shot in the arm the five-day game needs. But cricket has made radical leaps before.
Moeen Ali plans to carry on attacking with ball as well as bat after 'riding the wave' at Old Trafford to help put England in a winning position at Old Trafford. Moeen's response to a spot of adversity at 153 for seven in England's second innings was to play to his strengths as a natural strokemaker - especially after being dropped at slip on 15 by Dean Elgar off Keshav Maharaj.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
