ICC World Cup ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Jason Behrendorff fifer, Aaron Finch ton help Australia enter semis

first_imgAustralia is the first team to qualify for the semi-final of 2019 World Cup.Australia has a 6-2 head-to-head record against England in World Cups.England has not beaten Australia in World Cups since 1992. For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: In Australia’s previous tour to England in 2018, they were whitewashed 5-0 and lost the one-off Twenty20 International. In that horror series, they had conceded 481 in Trent Bridge which was the highest total ever. Heading into Lord’s on a green and seaming deck with overcast conditions, it looked like Australia’s nightmare against England would be prolonged. However, the World Cup brings out a different beast in Australia. In a clinical display of batting and bowling, the five-time champions turned the tables. Aaron Finch blasted his seventh ton against England and Jason Behrendorff’s maiden five-wicket haul, combined with Mitchell Starc’s 4/43 helped Australia beat England by 64 runs at Lord’s on Tuesday and become the first team to seal their spot in the semi-finals.The win was Australia’s sixth in eight encounters against England and it prolonged the hosts’ agony of not winning against the five-time champions in this tournament, having last won in 1992. For England, their second consecutive loss dents their semi-final prospects immensely with Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan all having a chance.The base for Australia’s victory was built by Finch, who had scores of 36,82,153 and 53 in the previous games. Finch found an able ally in David Warner and the duo tackled the conditions brilliantly. After surviving testing over of swing and seam from both Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer, both stitched together their fifth consecutive fifty-plus opening stand. Both Warner and Finch grew in confidence and in the 18th over, Adil Rashid was smashed for a couple of boundaries as the partnership crossed 100.Both Warner and Finch reached their fifties but Moeen Ali got rid of Warner for 53. Finch progressed to his 100 with a couple of sixes and was given good support from Usman Khawaja. However, Ben Stokes got rid of Khawaja and Steve Smith entered. The right-hander was greeted by a chorus of boos while the crowd had not applauded Warner’s fifty, indicating the antagonism exhibited by the England crowd due to the duo’s involvement in the ball-tampering scandal in Newlands in 2018.Finch notched up his 15th ton by tucking Archer to the leg side for a couple but fell immediately as he top-edged a short ball. The wicket of Finch cost Australia some momentum in the death overs, with Glenn Maxwell hitting some lusty blows before falling cheaply. Australia’s total of 285 owed a lot to Alex Carey as he struck some crucial boundaries to give the Australian bowlers momentum.In response, Starc was at his absolute best and he was ably supported by Behrendorff, who struck second ball by removing James Vince. Starc trapped Joe Root LBW with an inswinger while Eoin Morgan top-edged a bouncer to fine leg. Jonny Bairstow looked to revive the England innings with some attractive fours but Behrendorff, bowling an extended spell, got a short ball to climb up and Bairstow miscued the pull to be caught close to the boundary at deep midwicket.Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler combined and steadied the ship. Australia built the pressure while Stokes found the boundary on a regular basis. The partnership went past fifty but Marcus Stoinis got Buttler to pull a short ball to deep square leg where Khawaja took the catch near the ropes. With that wicket, Stokes changed gears and he launched Glenn Maxwell for two sixes and Cummins for two boundaries. However, the match was sealed in grand style when Stokes, batting on 89, was undone by an absolute brute of a yorker from Starc and he fell for 89.Behrendorff came back and polished the tail as he ended with his maiden five-wicket haul and Australia sealed the win when Rashid sliced Starc to cover. The five-time champions have shown that past results do not matter and that in the World Cup, they definitely know when to raise their game. For England, their quest for a maiden World Cup title, that too a chance at home, is now slipping away slowly.center_img highlightslast_img read more

2018 YRBSS: Fewer U.S. high school students having sex, using drugs

first_imgThe 2017 National Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) paints a promising picture about the drug and sexual behaviors U.S. high school students report, but the findings leave room for concern – especially among groups of young people who report multiple health risks. “The health of our youth reflects the Nation’s wellbeing,” said CDC Director Robert R. Redfield, M.D. “In the past decade, there have been substantial improvements in the behaviors that put students most at risk for HIV and sexually transmitted diseases. However, we can’t yet declare success when so many young people are getting HIV and STDs, and experiencing disturbingly high rates of substance use, violence, and suicide.” Student sexual behavior In 2017, there was another decline in the percentage of high school students who report that they have ever had sex and those who have had four or more sexual partners – the lowest levels since CDC began conducting the survey in 1991. Low use of condomsUnfortunately, a lower percentage of students who engage in sex report using condoms. The correct use of condoms helps to prevent the transmission of HIV and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and 15- to 24-year-olds account for half of all new STD infections in the U.S. The self-reported data show that students who:Ever had sex: Declined from 47.8% in 2007 to 39.5% in 2017.Had four or more sexual partners: Declined from 14.9% in 2007 to 9.7% in 2017.Used a condom during last sex: Declined from 61.5% in 2007 to 53.8% in 2017. Student reports of other factors that have been shown to increase the risk for HIV and STDs – like drug-use, experiences of violence, and poor mental health – remain troubling. Illicit drug use and new findings on prescription opioids While the percentage of students who reported ever using select illicit drugs (defined here as cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, inhalants, hallucinogens, or ecstasy) was down, the survey found that 14 percent of U.S. high school students (1 in 7) reported misusing prescription opioids. The misuse of prescription opioids can lead to overdose as well as injection drug use, which increases the risk for HIV. The percentage of students who:Ever used select illicit drugs: Declined from 22.6% in 2007 to 14.0% in 2017.Ever misused prescription opioids: Was 14.0% in 2017 (first year for data). Substantial levels of violence and persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness Nationally, 1 in 5 students reported being bullied at school, and 1 in 10 female students and 1 in 28 male students reported having been physically forced to have sex. Also in 2017, the proportion of students reporting persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness increased to 1 in 3. The percentage of students who:Were bullied at school: Has not significantly decreased from 19.9% in 2009 to 19.0% in 2017.Were forced to have sex: Has not significantly improved from 7.8% in 2007 to 7.4% in 2017.Females: Has not significantly decreased from 11.3% in 2007 to 11.3% in 2017.Males: Has decreased from 4.5% in 2007 to 3.5% in 2017. Felt sad or hopeless: Has increased from 28.5% in 2007 to 31.5% in 2017. “Today’s youth are making better decisions about their health than just a decade ago,” said Jonathan Mermin, M.D., director of CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention. “But, some experiences, such as physical and sexual violence, are outside their control and continue at painfully high levels. Their experiences today have powerful implications for their lives tomorrow.”Student health: schools central but can’t do it alone The CDC recommends schools, families, and communities must work together to make sure the nation’s youth stay healthy now and into their adulthood. Research shows that schools and families can protect against these risks by working to increase the connections youth have to schools and adults. Families can do this by providing strong family support, modeling healthy behaviors, engaging in meaningful conversations early and often, and staying engaged in their adolescents’ daily lives. Schools can do this by building environments that provide safety and connectedness for all students, delivering evidence-based health education with a focus on building skills for healthy decision-making, and connecting students to necessary health services. These groups can work together to provide more intentional messages, skills, and mental health support for teens, so that encouraging trends can continue and the troubling trends can be reversed. “We know that being connected to schools and safe adults is key to protecting the health of adolescents,” said Kathleen Ethier, Ph.D., director of CDC’s Division of Adolescent and School Health. “Students are more likely to thrive if they feel safe and have a sense of belonging – and if they have parents, adults, teachers, and friends who they know care about their success.” The CDC and its partners work on multiple levels to address strategies that protect and improve young people’s lives – including funding, implementing, and evaluating programs that address many of these risks and protective factors.last_img read more
