Bowler Stuart Broad will miss the remainder of England’s Test series against India because of a calf tear.

Broad, 35, was initially ruled out of the second Test, which starts on Thursday, but a scan on Wednesday has revealed a tear to his right calf.

He is England’s second-highest Test wicket-taker and could have played his 150th Test at Lord’s.

James Anderson, 39, is also a doubt for Thursday with a quad muscle niggle – so Saqib Mahmood has been called up.

England, who have Mark Wood and Craig Overton as the other pace-bowling options in the squad, expect more information on Anderson’s injury later on Wednesday.

The series is level at 0-0 after the first Test at Trent Bridge was drawn.

Broad, who has 524 wickets, felt a sharp pain in his calf when doing a warm-up ‘shuttle run’ during England training on Tuesday and left the field immediately.

England’s fast-bowling resources are already depleted. Jofra Archer, with an elbow injury, and Olly Stone, with a back problem, are long-term absentees, while Chris Woakes is out with a heel issue.

All-rounder Ben Stokes has also taken an indefinite break from cricket to focus on his mental wellbeing.

Anderson moved to 621 wickets – third on the all-time list – during the first Test but he missed training on Wednesday.

Asked if England can manage without their two attack leaders, batsman Jonny Bairstow told BBC Sport: “I don’t see any reason why we can’t cope.

“We’ve had a lot of people stand up previously. We don’t know exactly what will happen tomorrow, but there might be an opportunity for someone to play a Test at Lord’s, and that’s an exciting prospect.”

Bairstow did admit it is “naturally” a blow to lose bowlers of the calibre of Anderson and Broad, but added: “I don’t think it’s too much of a destabiliser.

“It’s the nature of professional sport. There will be injury and illness at times. You have to be adaptable.”

England already looked set to make changes to their side, with spin-bowling all-rounder Moeen Ali likely to come in for a batsman to give greater depth and variety to the attack.

Batsmen Haseeb Hameed and Ollie Pope are also in contention to return.

India will be without fast bowler Shardul Thakur, who has a hamstring injury.

His absence could mean a return for off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who was left out of the first Test despite having 413 Test wickets to his name as India opted for four front-line pace bowlers.

“Four fast bowlers means you can apply pressure in every session,” said captain Virat Kohli. “We like playing with that template.”

Kohli confirmed that Thakur is likely to be fit for the third Test at Headingley.

The Scot now has the chance to earn his full playing privileges in America for next season

After finishing in a tie for 15th at last week’s WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational, Robert MacIntyre has earned himself special temporary membership on the PGA Tour and a place in this week’s Wyndham Championship on a sponsor’s exemption.

The Scot has enjoyed a stellar season to date having made 10 of 12 PGA Tour cuts and registered two top-10s in that time, but because his starts have all come via the world rankings, the 25-year-old hasn’t been able to bank any of the 341 FedEx Cup points he’s earned.

However, thanks to an impressive showing in Memphis at the TPC Southwind course, that has now changed. Four rounds in the 60s left MacIntyre on eight-under and in a tie for 15th alongside Webb Simpson, meaning he qualified for special temporary PGA Tour status and has the chance to earn his full card for next season with a good finish this week.

He won’t be able to compete in the FedEx Cup play-off series but should he accumulate more points than the player ranked No. 125 at the conclusion of the Wyndham Championship, MacIntyre will become a PGA Tour member as of the 2021/22 season.

It appears to be the next logical step in the young Scot’s burgeoning career. The World No. 49 has found a home at every level of the game since turning pro in 2017.

In seven major appearances, the man from Oban in the north of Scotland hasn’t missed a single cut, picking up back-to-back top-10 finishes at The Open as well as a T12 in his Masters debut that secured his place in next year’s tournament.

And at the backend of last year, MacIntyre finally claimed his first European Tour title at the Aphrodite Hills Cyprus Showdown by way of a final-round 64.

The 25-year-old’s attacking style of play has earned him many plaudits and admirers, and has even put him in the mix for a Ryder Cup debut in September.

Closer to being Team USA than that aforementioned Dream Team … However, beyond comparisons, the truth is that The United States met the predictions and won a fourth consecutive gold in men’s basketball at the Olympic Games after beating France 87-82 in the final, this Saturday in Saitama.

Kevin Durant was the leader of the Americans with 29 points, well supported by Jason Tatum (19), against a France that paid dearly for its mistake from the free throw line (18/29) and the losses of the ball (18).

Despite the doubts during the preparation of the Olympic tournament, with worrying losses to Australia and Nigeria, and debut in Tokyo 2020 losing to France fairly (83-76), the United States returned to hang the gold in men’s basketball to maintain their dominance in this sport.

Since the stars of the NBA participate in the Olympic Games, since Barcelona 1992 with the mythical Dream Team, the Americans have only missed the gold medal once: it was in Athens 2004 with the coronation of Argentina of the Golden Generation led by Manu Ginobili.

Of the 20 Olympic tournaments, the United States participated in 19 (The only thing missing, due to the boycott of the western bloc, Moscow 1980). In all of them he got on the podium: 16 times to receive the gold medal, once the silver one was hung and, twice, the bronze one.

The Bleus, who had already shown in the first phase that this North American team could be beaten, did not lose faith at any time, but in the end they had to bow to Durant’s performance and their own mistakes.

With another triple by Frank Ntikilina the Europeans were only three points (73-70) with just under six minutes to play, but the Americans again took advantage of the French errors to hit the final stretch, certifying the gold with a triple by Tatum (82-72, m.37).

Leo Messi’s Barcelona jerseys for the 2021-2022 season disappeared from the official Barça stores when his signing for Paris Saint-Germain was announced, and now Nike will be in charge of deciding his fate once the club has returned them to him, although it is not known. they calculate large economic losses in this regard.

Barça has approximately two months to send the product, according to sources from the entity, but the number of shirts from the six-time Ballon d’Or that will have to be returned will not be particularly significant. because the name and number are usually stamped in the same store.

This is also confirmed by those responsible for the Barça stores, who explain that Nike sends them on the one hand the non-personalized shirts and on the other the sheets to do so, and that they managed to sell all Messi shirts from last season.

Therefore, only those of the current course that the shop assistants stamped should be returned to the North American multinational for them to wear in the stores as a claim for fans to buy them without having to queue for the stamping. This commercial resource is only used, always according to these sources, with the best players of the team and it is evident that Leo Messi was the emblem par excellence.

On the other hand, those responsible say that the plates with the number and the name are usually cut out so that they can be reused with other players and that they are not returned to Nike. This is what happened with all the leading players who left previously, as happened in the case of Neymar, who will once again become Messi’s teammates, this time at PSG. According to different studies, until now 8 out of 10 Barça shirts that were sold wore the ’10’ of Leo Messi, which meant income of between 20 and 30 million per season for the club.

This Tuesday the specialist in the economy of Barça and general director of Diagonal Inversiones, Marc Ciria, explained to EFE that the entity is betting a lot on Memphis Depay commercially and that he “could sell 5 out of 10 T-shirts and thus prevent the drop in sales from going beyond 30% in the short term.”

The Barça home kit for the 2021-2022 season can be purchased from June 16. Thus, the Barça fans have practically had two months to buy it with Messi’s ’10’ on their back. This summer it has been common to see it on the streets of Barcelona while practically everyone took the continuity of Rosario for granted. What will its owners do with it now?

In which ultra-secure Paris villa will Lionel Messi set down his suitcases, with his family, when he signed the solid gold contract, Tuesday, August 10, offered to him by the leaders of Paris-Saint-Germain ( PSG)? The question may seem anecdotal in the turbulent context of the star’s arrival in Paris. It is however essential in the eyes of the best footballer of this beginning of the XXI.e century, escorted daily by a cohort of bodyguards and whose in-laws were kidnapped, in 2015, by armed and hooded burglars in Rosario, the birthplace of the Argentinian prodigy.

Especially since Lionel Messi is perfectly aware of the misadventure experienced this winter by his probable future Parisian partner and compatriot Angel Di Maria, March 14, 2021. That day, Di Maria struggles to hide his perplexity and annoyance when he leaves the lawn of the Parc des Princes. The Argentine striker of PSG is then invited by his trainer, Mauricio Pochettino, to leave the field early, in the middle of the league meeting against Nantes. The player will learn it from the mouths of his leaders: his home in Neuilly-sur-Seine (Hauts-de-Seine) has just been “visited” by burglars, during the match, despite the presence on the scene of his family and a security guard.

The damage would be evaluated at several hundred thousand euros (jewelry, watches) for Di Maria, already the victim of “home-jacking” during his time at Manchester United (2014-2015). That same evening of March 14, another burglary took place in Chatou (Yvelines), at the parents of the Brazilian defender of PSG, Marquinhos. This time, the damage amounted to only several tens of thousands of euros, but the situation got out of hand: the father of the Parisian captain was harassed and kidnapped, with his two daughters, in a dressing room.

A law of the series for PSG

Responsible for the “Marquinhos affair”, the Versailles prosecutor confirms to the World the opening of a judicial investigation against four suspected criminals, placed in pre-trial detention and indicted, among other things, for “theft in an organized gang followed by violence, forcible confinement”, “association of criminals with a view to committing a crime”. “The burglary was prepared”, specifies a judicial source.

At Paris-Saint-Germain, these two “home-jackings” are not isolated cases. We can even talk about a playoff law: four burglaries targeting club players have taken place since January 2021. Already, in February 2019, the mansion of Brazilian Dani Alves, in Neuilly-sur-Seine, had been burgled for damage of 500,000 euros. Then, in January 2020, four hooded individuals fled as they attempted to “visit” Marquinhos’ home in Yvelines.

All confirmed. The vaccination campaign changes priority: it focuses on the very young while the run-up to the over 50s who have not received even a dose fades into the background. The general writes it Francesco Figliuolo in a letter addressed to the Regions with which he asks to “prepare preferential lanes for admission to the administration of citizens” who are between 12 and 18 years from August 16, “even without prior reservation”. At the moment for the under 18 the administration is authorized only of Pfizer O Modern.

Without an acceleration in the administration of first doses, in fact, the goal – set by Figliuolo himself – of immunizing 80% of the population by the end of September would not be achieved. And the general knows. And in fact he wrote to the Regions that the vaccination campaign “is developing in the terms planned that see the progressive achievement of the objectives envisaged for the immunization of the priority classes, of the most vulnerable and fragile citizens ”. But among the fragile and the vulnerable, however, there are above all the 4.42 million Italians with more than 50 years that have not received even a dose: on this category, the general seems to have thrown in the towel.

Until mid-July the commissioner Son he repeated that “going 60 is our categorical imperative”. The strategy set up with the Regions, which also provides for the involvement of general practitioners, has not, however, yielded the desired results. Hence the decision to reverse priorities. Not only for a percentage of the first doses used but also in view of the restart of the school, with sports activities attached. “This predisposition – the letter reads in fact – will also have positive implications for encouraging safe shooting both sporting activities and those aimed at guaranteeing greater psychophysical well-being for the youngest ”.

Messi’s move to PSG fixed

After 21 years at FC Barcelona, ​​superstar Lionel Messi signed a two-year deal with Paris Saint-Germain. The lavishly endowed working paper also includes an option for another season in the French capital.

“I hope this will be a great year”

Messi has signed a contract until 2023. After that there is an option for a further year. He should earn at least 35 million euros a year, and he has big plans for sport. “I hope this will be a big year,” said Messi, whose new club has never won the premier class despite great financial efforts. In 2020 they lost the final against Bayern (0: 1), in 2021 they were eliminated in the semifinals.

PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi with his latest transfer coup: Superstar Lionel Messi

As at his farewell press conference in Barcelona on Sunday, Messi was accompanied by his wife and three sons, who were already wearing the new jersey of their famous dad with the number 30. During the appointment, fans celebrated their new star. Messi then went outside to wave to the fans.

“Madness since my arrival”

The “Messimania” had already reached Paris on Tuesday. Several hundred fans had received the superstar at the small Le Bourget airport before PSG made the transfer official the evening after a successful medical check. Messi was now celebrating almost in awe. “I thank the Parisians, it’s been madness since I arrived. That is the icing on the cake, ”emphasized Messi. After the tears when they said goodbye to Barca, joy followed again. “I’ve been very lucky since I arrived here,” said Messi.

In front of the Paris Club shop in the city, the fans lined up patiently and excitedly in a long queue to buy another jersey from the new superstar. Initially, only the original version for women was available in the PSG online shop.

Messi will wear the number he once had on his debut at FC Barcelona: 30. He wanted to leave Neymar’s 10 for his former and now congenial Brazilian strike partner.

Reunited with Neymar

With a Parisian superstar group, only all possible titles can be the goal and the claim. Messi’s decision for PSG was made easier in addition to a certainly very well paid contract, which allegedly also guarantees him the right to be treated by the Argentine national team doctors and to fly to Barcelona when he wants, through those he already knows well from PSG squad. Neymar (formerly also FC Barcelona), Angel di Maria (national team) or coach Mauricio Pochettino.

“That played a role, yes,” said Messi. With Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, he could now form the new dream storm of world football. If Mbappe stays. Al-Khelaifi said: “He’s a Paris player. He wants to win. He has said publicly that he wants a high-performing team. He has her. We can’t do more. “

Messi is the masterpiece of the Qatar club owners. 35 titles during his time – with the youth totaling 21 years – at FC Barcelona speak for themselves. “I still remember the first day ten years ago. People asked what we were up to, ”said Al-Khelaifi. Neymar came in the summer of 2017 for the record transfer of 222 million euros, a year later Mbappe for 145 million – Messi comes free and promotes the club to even higher spheres.

Messi is forever grateful to Barcelona

Messi played for Barcelona for 21 years, scoring 672 goals in 778 games for the Catalans. Negotiations had failed after his return last week. PSG announced the commitment on Tuesday evening. He was forever grateful to FC Barcelona and its fans, stressed Messi again. “You know I like to win, that I am a winner. I want to pursue that further. “

His era in Barcelona ended for financial reasons. The club, which was in debt with almost 490 million euros, had gotten itself into a hopeless situation – probably also due to its lavish salary. “If we sign Leo, it will be because we can,” said PSG President Al-Khelaifi, “otherwise we would not have done it.” You know the rules of financial fair play and adhere to them.

Due to the dramatic deterioration in the security situation in Afghanistan, Germany is no longer deporting rejected asylum seekers there.

A spokesman for the Federal Ministry of the Interior said on Wednesday: “Due to the current developments in the security situation, the Federal Minister of the Interior has decided to suspend deportations to Afghanistan for the time being.”

A deportation of six Afghans that was postponed last week will initially not be made up for.

The security situation in Afghanistan has deteriorated dramatically since the decision to withdraw international troops from Afghanistan in mid-April.

The militant Islamist Taliban have now brought nine provincial capitals under their control – on Wednesday they captured Kunduz airport and, after fierce fighting, the city of Faisabad.

► The Taliban now also control the borders in the north of the country: According to this, the Islamists have taken control of the borders with Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The Taliban had promised not to cross the borders, the newspaper “Kommersant” quoted on Wednesday as Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

The EU ambassadors represented in Kabul had only spoken out in favor of stopping deportations on Tuesday. 26 organizations, including Amnesty International, Pro Asyl, Caritas and Diakonie, pleaded for it in a joint statement.

The Federal Foreign Office is currently preparing a new asylum situation report for Afghanistan, which is usually the main basis for decisions about deportations. However, this report is not yet available. More than 1,000 migrants have been returned to Afghanistan since 2016, mostly criminals.
