Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja huge weapons for India in Champions Trophy: Michael Clarke to India Today

first_imgFormer Australia captain Michael Clarke on Friday said spin twins Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja will be India’s key weapons in the Champions Trophy next month in England.WATCH: India have the firepower to defend Champions Trophy title, Michael Clarke tells India TodaySpeaking exclusively to India Today, Clarke said India definitely have the firepower to defend the Champions Trophy title which they won in 2013.”Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin are going to be two huge weapons for India in England depending on the weather conditions there. If they are getting good summer, the wickets will be dry and I think spin will play a part. Even if it swings there, I think India have got quality fast bowlers whom they can utilise,” Clarke told India Today. (Shikhar Dhawan-Rohit Sharma ideal opening pair for India in Champions Trophy: VVS Laxman to India Today)Clarke also said that the Indian Premier League is a good opportunity for the players to prepare for the Champions Trophy, which begins on June 1.”I feel India have the firepower to defend the Champions Trophy title. I feel the Indian Premier League as the preparation leading to the Champions Trophy is fantastic for the all the players involved. There’s absolutely no doubt that India will be well prepared. They have got good enough players,” he said.Clarke said opener KL Rahul’s absence will be a big loss but added that India have the players to replace him.”I think if KL Rahul is not completely fit, India will not pick him. It is a big loss but India have got replacements. I think Rohit Sharma needs to play and open for India. And then I think the selectors will go for Ajinkya Rahane. Rahane’s technique if the ball is swinging is conducive to England, he is a good player of both fast and spin and offers a lot on the field.advertisement”No brainer at No.3… Virat Kohli as captain, Yuvraj Singh at No.4. I think Yuvraj has earned his place, he is experienced. I would go with MS Dhoni at No.5. He is experienced and he’s still the best keeper in the Indian team. At No.6, I would pick Manish Pandey and then Kedar Jadhav at No.7.”Ashwin and Jadeja will be my two spinners and my four quicks would be Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who continues to show that he can play in all three formats. Then it’s Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami,” he said.last_img read more

Amazing Dads documentary miniseries launched in Jamaica

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, October 23, 2017 – Kingston – The Bureau of Gender Affairs in partnership with Men of God Against Violence and Abuse (MoGAVA), AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) and the Management Institute for National Development (MIND), have launched a new miniseries titled ‘Amazing Dads’ which aims to promote positive stories about fathers in Jamaica and mobilise men to be productive members of society.Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Hon. Olivia Grange, who has portfolio responsibility for the Bureau, attended the launch, which was held at MIND on Old Hope Road in St. Andrew on Friday, October 20, during which she recommitted to supporting the initiative.The concept of Amazing Dads was developed by members of MoGAVA, which is a faith-based organisation that primarily seeks to empower men to become productive citizens.According to Ms. Grange, when the concept of the miniseries was introduced to her by MoGAVA earlier this year, she readily endorsed its development and implementation.“The Amazing Dads miniseries is a well-needed platform to highlight the positive roles of men, notably, our Jamaican fathers.   There are many amazing stories of fathers who have gone above the call of duty for their children and their family’s well-being, despite challenging circumstances,” she added.The Minister said she is hopeful that positive messages about Jamaican fathers will be broadcast, so that other persons who need motivation to become positive male role models will be inspired.“These stories are not always highlighted to remind us of how important fathers are, and that good fathers do exist. For this, I commend Reverend Jayson Downer and his creative team for conceptualising the idea of Amazing Dads. I wish to commend the Bureau and their continued support and partnership with men groups such as MoGAVA. I also wish to highlight the partnership of AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which is providing developmental support to this initiative,” she said.Ms. Grange noted that some of the goals of Amazing Dads are consistent with those of the special service desk for men that was established in the Bureau of Gender Affairs in April 2016.  This followed Cabinet’s approval for the name of the Bureau of Women’s Affairs to be changed to the Bureau of Gender Affairs.“It (the desk) serves as a central point to provide sensitisation and awareness on a range of issues affecting men and boys.   These include parenting, health, education, the role of men in the elimination of violence against women, among others.   It also focuses on policy, research, gender-sensitive training to develop leadership and promote responsible male behaviour and attitudes”.The desk also serves to forge partnerships with men’s groups and other key stakeholders to heighten awareness on specific issues faced by men and boys.In the background information on Amazing Dads, which President and Founder, MoGAVA, Reverend Jayson Downer, shared with those present, it stated, “Amazing Dads is a public education programme that seeks to highlight men and their positive role as parents in the Jamaican society.   The programme will be in the form of a televised miniseries, which aims to document the importance of fathering, dispel the cultural myth that fathers are ‘wutliss’ and, perhaps, most importantly, demonstrate how Jamaican fathers can be actively involved in the growth and development of their child/children amidst challenges”.It further stated, “Amazing Dads also aims to reiterate the positive roles that men play in society, being mentors and guiding both younger males and other fathers.   Fathers of exemplary character will be interviewed to share their role played in their child/children’s lives and the influence it has on their child/children’s behaviour.   The interviewer will take a journey in the lives of these fathers, interviewing other family members, friends, members of the community and, in some cases, their child/children, in an effort to get a wholesome view of fathering”.MoGAVA has implemented several initiatives with men and boys throughout Jamaica, with one of the programmes being ‘Fathering Behind Bars’.Fathering Behind Bars aims to assist men who have been incarcerated, through sensitisation sessions, empowerment and capacity building, to develop as better men, despite previous mistakes.    Additionally, it is intended to motivate fathers behind bars to continue playing an active role in the lives of their child/children, and help to restore hope.Release: JIS Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more
