MUMBAI: While Sachin Tendulkar 's innovative idea of having 14 players-a-side in Harris Shield matches was well-received in some quarters, former India skipper Dilip Vengsarkar says it only should be implemented in the initial rounds of the tournament as it could prove detrimental in the moulding of allrounders and could impede tail-enders' batting skills.Vengsarkar, who was vice-president of the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) till early 2017, had given his consent to the format last season.
MUMBAI: Had it been at the senior level, it would be a no-contest, but when the African U-17 champions Mali face the European U-17 champions Spain in the semifinal of the FIFA U-17 World Cup at the DY Patil Stadium here on Wednesday, both teams will know that they can't afford to give an inch.Both teams have had a similar journey in this tournament. Both lost their first game to South American opponents - Spain went down to Brazil 2-1 and Mali were stunned by Paraguay 3-2.
MUMBAI: The Indian Colts won hearts with their spirited performance at the ongoing U-17 World Cup. Though they weren't able to get any points on board, they set quite a few records along the way. Qualifying for a Fifa event - though by courtesy of being hosts - was one. They also managed to score a goal, an excellent header by Jeakson Singh in their 2-1 loss to Colombia.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
