first_imgMAN OF the Match Michael Ward deflected the praise after he led Donegal to the All-Ireland Masters crown yesterday.Ward scored five points as Donegal defeated Dublin 0-9 to 0-7 in the final.“It was very much a team effort from tackling to running,” the Ballyshannon man told Ocean FM’s Paddy McGill. “It’s relief that it’s all over What a second half from each and every one of the lads who came on.“Dublin thought the wind would win it in the second half, but it wins you very little. We got over the line, thanks be to God.”It’s 21 years now since Ward was Man of the Match when Aodh Ruadh overcame Naomh Columba in the 1998 Donegal SFC final.He said: “I still get a buzz out of it.

Has D-day arrived for the troubled A380?

first_imgAn Emirates A380 Speculation is growing that Airbus may draw the curtain on its A380 superjumbo program Thursday as it hands down its annual results.Reuters said Wednesday the European manufacturer was nearing a decision to ax the big plane amid indications Emirates was revising a crucial order that underpins ongoing production.Quoting sources and analysts,  Reuters said Airbus was likely to give an update at its results.Emirates operates the world’s biggest fleet of A380s and has been the aircraft’s staunchest supporter.It has 53 aircraft left on order but is looking to replace some of those planes with smaller twin-engine aircraft after talks with engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce failed to produce the increase in efficiency the Dubai airline is seeking.READ: winning passengers’ hearts may not be enough for the A380 superjumboAirbus is hoping to convince Emirates to switch some of the order to A350 or A330neo aircraft.The decision to wind down the program, which must be approved by the Airbus board, comes as Qantas formally canceled its remaining order for eight A380s and Qatar chief executive Akbar Al Baker criticized the plane as too heavy and fuel-hungry.Read:  Why the Airbus A380 has failed airlines.The Qantas cancellation was not a surprise as the airline had made it clear for several years that it was not taking the additional planes.The A380 was thrown a lifeline in early 2018 when  Emirates signed a deal for up to 36 aircraft to be delivered from 2020.The deal for 20 firm orders and 16 options was valued at $US16 billion at list prices and allowed Airbus to continue production.Since the A380 was designed in the late 1990s, however, much lighter, all-composite aircraft have emerged like the 787 and A350 that burn about 34 percent less fuel per passenger.The A380s engines have been leap-frogged twice and the new 777X to be rolled out shortly will burn around 40 percent less fuel per passenger because of its new generation General Electric engine – the GE9X.Airbus tried to interest airlines in an upgraded A380 neo but only Emirates was interested.One of the biggest arguments for the A380 was capacity limited Heathrow Airport in the UK.Many airlines purchased the A380 because of the landing slot constraints at Heathrow and needed the A380 to get more capacity.But now many of these airlines fly to other destinations in the UK such as Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Cardiff.And airlines such as Emirates offer over 50 destinations in Europe giving travelers far more options.Another problem for A380 operators is the lack of enthusiasm for second-hand planes, suggesting many will end up parked in the desert.last_img read more

Multan Test: When a fuming Sachin prefered to be left alone

first_imgRahul Dravid and Sachin TendulkarStranded on 194 when stand-in skipper Rahul Dravid declared the Indian innings in the 2004 Multan Test, Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar has spoken about the anger and shock he felt by the decision which “did not make any sense”.In his autobiography ‘Playing It My Way’, Tendulkar reveals how hurt he was at the declaration and he told Dravid to “leave him alone” so that he could come to terms with his disappointment of missing out on a double century.”I assured Rahul that the incident would have no bearing on my involvement on the field, but off the field, I would prefer to be left alone for a while to come to terms with what had happened,” Tendulkar writes in the book.However, the batting legend said that the incident didn’t have any adverse effect on his relationship with Dravid.”Despite this incident, I am glad to say Rahul and I remained good friends and even on the field, our camaraderie remained intact until the end of our careers. We continued to have some good partnerships and neither our cricket nor our friendship was affected.”In the book, published by Hachette India, Tendulkar has narrated the entire story of the Multan declaration and what happened behind the scenes after he was back in the dressing room.Tendulkar writes, “At tea-time, I asked stand-in skipper Rahul Dravid, who was in charge because Sourav was out with a back injury, and coach John Wright what the plan was. I was informed, we were looking to give Pakistan an hour to bat, so would put them in with 15 overs left on the second day. It was perfectly sensible and I went about my business after tea with this plan in mind.”advertisementTendulkar said that he paced his innings in a manner that he could reach double century in time to give Pakistan 15 overs to bat as per plan.”But then, a little more than half an hour into the post-tea session, Ramesh Powar, who was substituting in the game came on the field and asked me to accelerate. I even joked with him, saying I was aware that we needed quick runs but with the field totally spread out, there was only so much we could do”, he writes.”A little later, when I was on 194, he came out again and said I should try and get my double hundred in that over itself because Rahul had decided to declare. I was startled to say the least, because in my mind I still had 12 balls in which to score the remaining six runs before 15 overs were left for the day”, Tendulkar writes.But as it happened, Tendulkar did not get to play a single ball in that over.”As it happened, I did not get to play a single ball in that over with Yuvraj on strike against Imran Farhat.He blocked the first two balls before picking up two runs off the third ball. He once again blocked the fourth ball and was out to the fifth ball.”Then just as Parthiv Patel, the next batsman started to come out, I saw Rahul gesturing us to go back to the pavilion.He had declared the innings with me stranded on 194 and with 16 overs left for the day — one more than we had agreed.Tendulkar admitted that he was indeed “shocked” at Dravid’s decision.”I was shocked as it did not make any sense. It was Day 2 of the Test match and not Day 4, as it had been in Sydney, a month earlier.””Disappointed and upset, I made my way back to the dressing room and could sense that the whole team was surprised at the decision (Rahul Dravid declaring with me stranded at 194). Some of my team-mates perhaps expected me to throw my gear about in the dressing room in disgust and create a scene. However, such things are not in me and I decided not to say a word to anyone about the incident.””I calmly put my batting gear away and asked John Wright for a little time before I went out to field because I was feeling a little tight after batting for so long. Inside, I was fuming. Just as I was washing my face in the bathroom, John walked up to me and apologized. He was sorry about what had happened and said he had not been party to the decision. I was surprised and said to him that as coach he was one of the decision-makers and there was no reason for him to be sorry if he believed in what had been done.”advertisementTendulkar told coach Wright that what has happened can’t be reversed now.”I also said that what was done could not be reversed and it was best to leave it alone. Finally, I couldn’t help reminding him that the declaration was contrary to what had been discussed at tea and it was strange that I was not given even one ball to get to my double hundred after a message had been sent out asking me to get there as quickly as possible”.Tendulkar recollects that after Wright, even regular skipper Ganguly came into “apologise” for the decision.”Soon after my exchange with John, Sourav came to me and said he was very sorry at what had happened and that it wasn’t his decision to declare. This was a little surprising, as the skipper, was part of the tea-time discussion and was also present in the dressing room at the time of declaration.””I said to him (Sourav) that there is no point going over it anymore.”Tendulkar didn’t hide his displeasure at the voluntary opinion given by his one-time teammate Sanjay Manjrekar.” Sanjay Manjrekar, who was a commentator in Pakistan, turned up in my room. Sanjay said, it had been a brave decision to declare and it was a good sign for Indian cricket. He carried on in that vein until I asked him if he really knew what he was talking about.”I explained to him that he was not aware of what had transpired in the dressing room and arrived at his judgement without knowing the real facts of the matter. I made it clear that I didn’t appreciate his opinion, which I thought was a deliberate attempt to be different.”Tendulkar said that he told Rahul that “he was indeed upset and can’t pretend otherwise.””Rahul said that the call was taken with the interests of the team in mind. It was important to demonstrate that we meant business and were keen to win. I wasn’t convinced. First, I said to him that I was batting for the team as well. The 194 was meant to help the team and it was my individual contribution to the team’s cause.”Tendulkar reminded Dravid of the Sydney Test match, held less than a month ago.”When we had both been batting on the fourth evening and Sourav had sent out two or three messages asking when we should declare and Rahul had carried on batting. The two situations were comparable and, if anything, the Sydney declaration was far more significant and may have cost a Test match and series victory. If Rahul was so keen show intent in Multan, he should have done the same in Sydney.”last_img read more
