England’s Test cricketers reassembled for training at The Kia Oval on Tuesday after a week spent stewing on the defeat at Trent Bridge, with two fresh faces in the squad and their firebrand vice-captain, Ben Stokes, of all people urging a more sensible approach.
Tom Westley will make his Test debut against South Africa at the Oval next week, with Dawid Malan is hoping to join him, after England named a 13-man squad on Thursday. With Gary Ballance ruled out of the third Test following the fractured left index finger the No3 suffered during the 340-run defeat at Trent Bridge, the England selectors have resisted the claims of Surrey opener Mark Stoneman and instead opted to draft in two middle order players.
Gary Ballance suffered a hairline fracture to his left index finger during the defeat to South Africa at Trent Bridge but has told England he is ready to bat in next week’s third Test. Ballance, who was struck by Morné Morkel during England’s fourth day collapse as the tourists levelled the series, saw the minor crack show up in an X-ray on Tuesday morning but has reported minimal discomfort and claims he is able to grip a bat handle unimpeded.
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".
