BEN STOKES last night saluted the ECB’s shock decision to let him play for England again. The superstar all-rounder will return for next month’s tour to New Zealand, despite awaiting trial after being charged with affray following an incident in Bristol in September. Stokes tweeted: “I’m extremely delighted to be given this opportunity. “I can’t wait to get back out on a pitch with the Three Lions on my chest and feeling that pride that we all get.
BEN STOKES’ punch-up in the street continues to create shockwaves and divisions across English cricket. The fallout — some of which is increasingly bitter — from that fateful night in Bristol has touched every strand of the national team and the people who run it. For starters, try to get your head round this . . . Stokes was banned from playing in The Ashes even though he had not been charged with anything.
LIAM LIVINGSTONE has been chosen for England’s Test tour of New Zealand, with Gary Ballance dumped. The Yorkshire captain makes way for Lancashire’s skipper, with Livingstone included in the red-ball squad for the first time. The big-hitting batsman played two Twenty20 internationals last summer and said: “This is a huge honour. “As a kid, I always wanted to play Test cricket and I’m determined to take my chance if I get an opportunity in New Zealand.
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".
