Rohit Sharma has Maturity and Experience says VVS Laxman

first_imgNEW DELHI: Former India cricketer VVS Laxman wants Rohit Sharma to stick to his natural game during the upcoming three-match test rubber against South Africa starting on October 2 in Visakhapatnam.“The biggest advantage that Rohit has is his experience, which I didn’t have. I opened in Test cricket after playing only four Test matches. Rohit has played 12 years of international cricket. So he has the maturity and the experience and he is also in good form,” Laxman told former India cricketer Deep Dasgupta during an interview on the latter’s YouTube channel “Deep Point”.“I believe the mistake that I made while opening the innings was to change my mindset, which got me a lot of success as a middle-order batsman, whether it’s batting No 3 or No 4,” added Laxman, who amassed 8781 Test runs.“I also tried to change my technique. As a middle-order batsman, I was always having a front press (front-foot trigger) and then go towards the ball, whereas talking to seniors and coaches, I went to back and across as I had to face Curtly Ambrose (97-away series), who would generate steep bounce from length. This huge change in approach affected my batting and I hope Rohit shouldn’t do it,” Laxman told the former India stumper.“If you tweak your natural game too much, then you will not get the results as your mind gets cluttered and you tend to lose your rhythm. I can admit that my flow was affected when I opened. Rohit is a rhythm-based player and if his touch gets affected, then it will be difficult,” the Hyderabadi stylist was candid in his confession.However Laxman didn’t discount that there is a basic discipline, more so in mindset that an opener must have and he is confident that a player of Rohit’s calibre can imbibe that after so many years of international experience.“Rohit wants to play Test cricket and with Ajinkya (Rahane) and (Hanuma) Vihari at Nos five and six Rohit knows that his chance to do well is as an opener. He should take this positively. He has nothing to lose. For a class player like him, it is better than sitting on the bench. He has to be in that playing XI,” he concluded.

Sonoma County Will Provide Loans For Energy Retrofit Work

first_imgBoth Homeowners and Commercial Property Owners Are EligibleSANTA ROSA, Calif. — The Sonoma County government has launched a program to offer loans to homeowners and commercial property owners for energy-retrofit work and the installation of renewable-energy equipment.Similar municipal or county-funded finance programs exist in Boulder County, Colorado; Berkeley, California; and Palm Desert, California. Today San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom announced that San Francisco will soon launch a similar loan program.According to the Press Democrat, Sonoma County will provide loans at 7% interest to homeowners for a variety of projects, including photovoltaic arrays, solar water heaters, energy-efficient windows, on-demand water heaters, insulation, and low-flush toilets. The minimum loan amount is $2,500. Borrowers will have up to five years to repay loans up to $5,000. Loans over $5,000 are considered long-term loans, with repayment schedules that can stretch out over 20 years.Loan Payments Are Tacked Onto Property Tax BillsHomeowners will repay loans by means of premiums added to property tax bills. If a property is sold, the new owner will become responsible for the loan payments.Sonoma County will commit $100 million to the new Energy Independence Program. “It’s going to create energy improvements, jobs and help get this economy going,” said County Controller Rod Dole. “We’ve been getting phone calls for weeks. The interest has been phenomenal.”According to supervisor Shirlee Zane, other counties and municipalities are considering similar programs. “We are going to be a model for the whole country,” Zane said.last_img read more

FINAL THOUGHTS: Women’s open

first_imgPrior to the start of the State of Origin series, the two captains of the women’s open teams Louise Winchester (New South Wales) and Peta Rogerson (Queensland) shared their final thoughts.Lousie Winchester on…The women’s open division:“We know it is going to be a tough one that is for sure, New South Wales and Queensland are always the toughest games I’ve been a part of. You’ve got the best versus the best, you have got such quality players out there mixed with experience and youth. It’s always the quickest touch I have ever played and you know, Australia are world champions in touch and it’s the best of New South Wales against the best of Queensland. It is an absolute physical battle as well as a mental battle.The series 2-1 loss in 2012:“That [loss] really hurt us. Queensland deserved it, they outplayed us but we have had two years to think about what we need to do and to get the series win, especially in Queensland it will be something we are looking forward to and being a part of.”Peta Rogerson on…The Queensland team:“We’ve had a great couple of weeks with our preparation. Everything has run really smoothly and there isn’t an overly nervous feeling in the camp at the moment but I’m sure as it draws closer, it will build. I just hope all of our girls have a great series, especially the girls on debut, I just want them to have the opportunity to play really well.Playing in Queensland:“You’ve got your family and your friends who sometimes don’t get the chance to watch you play when you are travelling further away. It is always that extra special to play in front of them and that’s what makes it a bit more proud and important.Wearing the maroon colours:“Growing up as a girl playing touch, it was my dreams to make a Queensland team and every time I put on a Queensland jersey it makes me feel very, very special and very proud, and to captain these group of girls, it will be a great moment this weekend.”There are plenty of ways to keep up-to-date with all of the latest results, news and information from the 2014 State of Origin.
