Jason Gillespie is looking forward to the Ashes and says the ‘wonderful’ series should be close between two evenly matched teams in England and Australia. England have only won one of the last seven series in Australia but will travel Down Under off the back of series victories over South Africa and West Indies. Despite their recent success, question marks remains over a number of positions in the line-up, with England’s top order in particular the cause of much concern.
England director Andrew Strauss has suggested Joe Root will be allowed to be play in the Indian Premier League. Root has expressed interest in becoming the first England Test captain to feature at the IPL after seeing a number of his teammates flourish in the domestic competition. Jos Buttler, Jason Roy, Chris Jordan and Chris Woakes have all played a part while Ben Stokes signed a record-breaking £1.6million deal with Rising Pune Supergiants earlier in the year.
Rafael Nadal has dismissed suggestions the Laver Cup is nothing more than an exhibition and insists Team Europe are determined to ‘play with passion’ and win the tournament. A European team consisting of Nadal, Roger Federer, Marin Cilic, Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev and Tomas Berdych will face Team World in a three-day event in Prague starting on Friday. Some have criticised the tournament and questioned its worth, particularly as two ATP events are taking place at the same time.
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".
