Cricket News Archie Schiller, 7-year-old spinner, named Australian co-captain for Boxing Day Test

first_imgNew Delhi : Cricket Australia on Sunday named seven-year-old leg-spinner Archie Schiller as the new team co-captain alongside regular skipper Tim Paine for the Boxing Day Test against India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.  The Barossa Valley boy, who turned 7 on Saturday, will toss the coin and join hosts for the national anthem in the Boxing Day test. The leggie, who want to get Virat Kohli’s wicket, is all set to partner Nathan Lyon in the third Test starting Wednesday. Australian national cricket team head coach Justin Langer informed Schiller about his inclusion in the extended squad via a phone call. During their conversation, Schiller sounded impressively confident when he told Langer that he will get Indian skipper Virat Kohli out at the MCG.Archie Schiller, who has endured 13 heart operations and spent half of his life in hospital after being diagnosed with a life-threatening congenital disease, had the dream of captaining the Australian cricket team. Make a Wish Australia and Cricket Australia, worked together to make Archie’s cricket dreams come true.Archie and his three-year-old brother Harry were invited into the cockpit of the flight to Melbourne he was travelling in. The flight attendants, pilot and the staffers of Make a Wish Australia and Cricket Australia cheered and greeted the new Australia skipper with a huge round of applause.When Archie was just three months old, it came to light that he had faulty heart valves. Weeks after his birth he underwent an urgent surgery lasting more than seven hours in Melbourne. And six months later, he underwent a second surgery before he went under the knife again in last December.”We were told that it could go either way. We’ve learned to take nothing for granted and to cherish every day we have with him,” Schiller’s mother Sarah recalled.Paine said the decision to make Archie the co-captain was their way of fulfilling his long-cherished dream. “Sometimes we live a life, it’s very good, but you can be consumed in your own life at times, so to have someone like that around is actually really inspiring for our group. It’s great to have him around and we look forward to his debut on Boxing Day,” Paine said.Also Read | Under Virat Kohli’s captaincy, India have learnt to give it back to opposition: Viv RichardsBoth Australia and India are 1-1 in the four-match series.

After Trump barbs GM announces 18 bn investment new jobs

first_imgNew York: Facing a barrage of attacks from President Donald Trump over plant closures, General Motors announced Friday a USD 1.8 billion investment and the creation of 700 new jobs in the United States. About USD 300 million will be geared towards production of electric vehicles at the auto giant’s Orion plant in Michigan, creating 400 jobs, the company said in a statement. Those vehicles had been slated for production outside of the United States. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal In November, GM shuttered five US plants, including auto assembly plants in Michigan and Ohio as part of a 15 per cent cut in its workforce worldwide — cutting around 14,000 employees — which drew Trump’s Twitter wrath. This week he urged the company to reopen the Lordstown, Ohio auto plant or sell it to someone who would. “We are excited to bring these jobs and this investment to the US,” GM chief Mary Barra said in announcing the plans to employees in Orion. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boost “This new Chevrolet electric vehicle is another positive step toward our commitment to an all-electric future. GM will continue to invest in our US operations where we see opportunities for growth.” The new investment will help the company comply with new rules agreed to under the revised North American free trade deal, the statement said. Among other changes, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA, requires that manufacturers produce a share of their vehicles in higher-wage factories in order to gain duty-free access to the region — a requirement aimed at favoring US and Canadian facilities over those in Mexico. The treaty has yet to be ratified, however. The Orion plant already builds the Chevy Bolt EV, and the new model “will be based off an advanced version of the same vehicle architecture,” the statement said. However, this is separate from the previously announced plan to produce a Cadillac EV. In addition to the investment, GM said it is in the process of adding 1,000 jobs to its truck assembly plant in Flint, Michigan. And the company said it has 2,700 openings at five sites around the country available to the 2,800 hourly workers impacted by the recent plant closures.last_img read more
