“Cricket is truly for all,” says the International Cricket Council in a video promoting the diverse nature of its game. How right they are – anyone can play and you can play it just about anywhere. But here’s the disclaimer – unless you qualify to play for one of the 10 best cricketing nations in the world, you can forget about competing at the highest level. At a time when Fifa is expanding its World Cup to include a massive 48 teams, 10 seems to be the magic number for the ICC.
She was part of the New Zealand team that thumped Hong Kong 121-0 in last year’s Women’s Rugby World Cup in Dublin and now Aroha Savage is doing her bit to develop the sport here. Along with fellow Black Fern Rawinia Everitt, Savage joined Societe Generale Valley at the start of the KPMG Women’s Premiership season and has also held a coaching role with Hong Kong’s under-16 national age grade side.
Hong Kong are still in the running to qualify for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan but the Sunwolves are looking to use May’s Super Rugby game at Mong Kok Stadium to win over a new legion of fans for their national side. The Tokyo-based Sunwolves take on South Africa’s Stormers in the first ever Super Rugby game in Hong Kong on May 19 and co-captain Yutaku Nagare wants the locals to get behind his side. “I’m very excited and looking forward to playing in Hong Kong for the first time,” he said.
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".
