England seamer Jake Ball insists he is itching to gun down Australia’s batsmen after declaring himself fully fit for his side’s opening Ashes Test in Brisbane, which starts on Thursday. Ball, who strained ankle ligaments during a tour match earlier this month, appears to have moved ahead of Craig Overton in the pecking order should England opt for a four-pronged seam attack at The Gabba.
West Brom are expected to seek a manager with Premier League experience to steer them away from the relegation zone after axing head coach Tony Pulis. Pressure upon the experienced Pulis had intensified in recent weeks after a run of form which has seen the Baggies fail to win a Premier League clash in 10 attempts. Factoring in West Brom’s slump towards the end of last season, the Midlands outfit have claimed victory in just two of their last 21 top-flight fixtures.
Australia coach Darren Lehmann insists his side have seen chinks within England’s armour that they are confident of exploiting when the first Ashes Test in Brisbane gets underway on Thursday. England have played three warm-up clashes against inexperienced opposition and only managed to take one wicket during the entirety of Saturday’s final day against a Cricket Australia XI.
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".
