McCullum to overhaul top-order to revive Kolkata's IPL campaign
Kolkata Knight Riders coach Brendon McCullum criticised the top-order's slow batting in Thursday's defeat against Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and said changes were likely in the team to revive their campaign.
Delhi opener Prithvi Shaw smashed 82 off 41 balls to set the tone for his team's seven-wicket victory with 21 balls remaining."It's very, very disappointing," McCullum said after two-time champions Kolkata slumped to their fifth defeat in seven matches.
"What we saw from Prithvi Shaw was the perfect template of how we want to play."You're not always going to be able to hit every ball for four or six, but you can have the intent to do so, particularly when you're given a free licence."
Famed for his aggressive batting during his playing days, the former New Zealand captain said he and Kolkata skipper Eoin Morgan had asked the batsmen to try and score briskly."Unfortunately we're not quite getting that. We're certainly not getting it in the abundance that we need," McCullum said. headtopics.com
"It's very difficult if you don't play shots to score runs, and unfortunately we didn't play enough shots. It's become a bit of a theme."Kolkata face Royal Challengers Bangalore in their next match on Monday and McCullum said there would be personnel change.
"A saying that I've used throughout my career is that 'If you can't change a man, change the man'," said the coach."So we'll probably have to make some changes and try and bring in some fresh personnel who will hopefully take the game on a bit more."Read more: Reuters Top News »

Top court orders German govt to set post-2030 climate goalsBERLIN (AP) — Germany's top court ruled Thursday that the country's government has to set clear goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions after 2030, arguing that current legislation doesn't go far enough in ensuring that climate change is limited to acceptable levels. Several individuals from Germany and elsewhere, backed by environmental groups, had filed four complaints to the Constitutional Court arguing that their rights were impinged by the lack of sufficient targets beyond the next decade. Germany, like other Europ ean Union countries, aims to cut emissions by 55% by 2030 compared with 1990 levels. Legislation passed in 2019 set specific targets for sectors such as housing and transport for that period, but not for the long-term goal of cutting emissions to ‘net zero’ by 2050. No strong negotiator exist for Joe B., Putin & Xi Jinping with the exception of God!! So, please please our Geat God negociate them to lead the World which is now Globalized!! Let our God bless the entire World!! Please help me I'm being stalked. if METoo is not dead help me get thru to ACLU SafeHorizon RonanFarrow andersoncooper Lavernecox bershanshaw it's urgent before someone offs me In their ruling Thursday, judges said the current legislation “irreversibly pushes a very high burden of emissions reduction into the period after 2030.” (as it should, the solution to climate change has yet to be invented, it undoubtedly will in the future)
