Indian Premier League Condition-based planning in bowling and batting key to Mumbai Indians’ success: Jayant Yadav

Posted on by

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. highlights New Delhi: Mumbai Indians produced a brilliant performance in the first qualifier against Chennai Super Kings as they defeated the three-time IPL champions by six wickets to reach the IPL final for the fifth time. This was their fourth consecutive win against Chennai Super Kings and it was a combined effort with both bat and ball that gave Rohit Sharma’s side a crucial win. The bowlers conceded just 32 runs and took three wickets in the powerplay during the Chennai Super Kings innings and Suryakumar Yadav led from the front with a blazing 71 and it was this condition-based planning in both departments that gave Mumbai Indians success.Speaking after the match, Jayant Yadav, who played in the match as the extra spinner has heaped praise on Rohit Sharma and his tactics. “Rohit has been brilliant, it is one of those occasions where he juggled his bowlers to the situation. I think in the power play, the batsman cannot get used to you because if he understands what you are trying to do in different deliveries, he can really size you up because of the field restrictions. As professional cricketers, and especially in an always evolving T20 game, there will be different match-ups in different overs and every over counts. We as professional cricketers need to be up for it,” Jayant said. The offspinner, who had played a couple of Tests and internationals for India in the 2016/17 season against England, New Zealand and Australia, was picked by Mumbai Indians after being released by Delhi Capitals and said the team had adopted a tactical approach to tackle Chennai Super Kings in their home turf at the MA Chidambaram stadium.”Our plans on batting or bowling have always been condition specific. For example in Wankhede, there are different plans for different people. In Chennai, there are different plans for different people. So, it’s about gearing yourself tactically to various situations and trying to execute those plans to the hilt. I played in Chennai because the track here offers spin. I played as an extra spinner and my match-up was against lefties or bowling in the power play. So, I think that was a tactical decision and came off well in the end,” Jayant said.Mumbai Indians will now await the winner of the second qualifier while Chennai Super Kings will be playing the winner of the eliminator between Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Mumbai Indians entered the final for the fifth time in the IPL.Chennai Super Kings will play the winner of the Eliminator in Qualifier 2.Delhi Capitals have never won an IPL playoff game.last_img read more

Road to provincials just got a whole lot tougher for LVR

Posted on by

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily SportsThe L.V. Rogers Bombers now realize booking tickets to the B.C. High School AAA Boy’s Soccer tournament will not be as easy as in past years.Mount Baker took advantage of a short-staffed Bomber squad to squeak out a 1-0 victory in at the Wild High School Boy’s Soccer Tournament Saturday in the East Kootenay City.“We watched Baker play and knew we need some pace to stretch their wing/backs,” said Bomber coach Keith Williams. “Opportunities we had in the last few minutes proved worthless with errant shots,” Williams added. “A very excited and proud Baker team celebrated a well-deserved 1-nil victory.”The Bombers were missing Sean Hickson, Luis Loeschnik, Bruno Moro and Conrad Lanaway for the entire tournament.LVR opened the five-team, round robin tournament by stomping Selkirk Storm of Kimberley. Mitch Melanson had four goals to lead the Bombers.The Bombers then dumped Prince Charles Comets of Creston by the same 6-0 score in a very chippy contest. Luke Mori and Melanson each scored twice with Cormac Southam and Simon Sheppard adding singles. LVR’s Russell Ray was ejected from the contest.A tired and weary Bomber squad concluded the tournament by sneaking past Fernie Falcons 2-0. Mori and a converted defender to striker Kevin Lewis scored for LVR.“We were tired and sore after playing three games with one to three subs, so we took it easy (against Fernie),” Williams explained. “It was a nice way to conclude the tournament .  . . playing good patient defending (against) a weaker side.”The silver medal concludes the tournament season for LVR. The squad finished 12th at the Best of the Best High School Boy’s Soccer Tournament in Chilliwack before capturing top spot the weekend previous in Summerland.LVR now prepares for the Kootenay Zone Final set for Wednesday, November 3 in Cranbrook.  Game time is 1 p.m. MDT.The winner advances to the Provincial AAA Tournament November 25-27 at the Burnaby Lake Sport Complex. [email protected]last_img read more

How to Insulate a Cathedral Ceiling with Mineral Wool

Posted on by

first_imgOur expert’s opinionPeter Yost, GBA’s technical director, had this to say:Roof assemblies, like wall assemblies, should be designed and insulated to dry in at least one direction. We tend to focus on how building assemblies get wet from interior moisture during the cold winter months, but more importantly, we have to focus on how they dry from any of a variety of moisture sources, not just wintertime interior relative humidity.Roof assemblies are like wall assemblies that never get stood up straight. So, while they do see more bulk water, they can be designed and insulated without back-venting the roof sheathing (“hot roofs”), just as walls are. There are two critical elements, however: selecting materials for ALL layers that collectively create directional drying AND a continuous and contiguous (to the insulation) air barrier in the unvented roof assembly.On the other hand, back-venting the roof sheathing is a more forgiving approach, if the soffit-to-ridge vent chutes are continuous and well-sealed with respect to the roof cavity insulation.You can “decouple” the roof cladding and roof sheathing (in terms of wetting and drying) from the rest of the cathedral roof assembly with either a top-side air space or a vent chute underneath the roof sheathing. Each presents construction detail challenges, and costs. And frankly, the choice of roof cladding material and your climate can strongly suggest just how important some sort of venting is to the performance of the roof assembly. For examples, see this article from Building Science Corp. as well as this one.For more information on vapor profiles and drying, take a look at this blog. CONSTRUCTION DETAILS RELATED ARTICLES First, will that be enough insulation?Whether unvented cathedral ceilings should be dense-packed at all is a question that’s generated plenty of discussion in the past. Leaving that aside for the moment, a key question for Roy is whether mineral wool packed into a 2×10 rafter bay will provide enough thermal insulation for his locale, and the answer is no, it won’t. What about a vapor-permeable chute?If the ventilation chute carries away any excess moisture from the cavity insulation, Thomas Jefferson says, it would seem “wise” to make the baffle with a vapor-permeable material.“Foil-faced polyiso does add R-value but it’s not permeable,” Jefferson says. “I’d suggest hardboard (Masonite) or another fiber panel to just hold back the dense pack without impeding water vapor. The dense-pack will be only ~R-31, so you’ll need to furr out below the joists or add polyiso below, as Martin suggested.”Holladay disputed Jefferson’s opinion that “this vent chute serves partly to carry out any excess moisture from the cavity insulation.” According to Holladay, “No one wants interior moisture migrating through the insulation to the ventilation cavity — certainly not deliberately,” he says. The idea is to prevent any moisture from getting into the ventilation cavity and to provide a mechanism that helps keep the roof sheathing dry.“The purpose of the ventilation channel is to lower the humidity of the roof sheathing — in case some sloppy carpenter did a bad job of caulking the ventilation chutes in place, or in case some electrician mistakenly installs wiring or a can light in your ceiling,” Holladay says.Isn’t the purpose of a ventilation chute to prevent the accumulation of moisture? asks Jefferson. “Moisture can come from a few different sources, and one could be below the chute,” he says. “Why design a vent chute to intentionally exclude water vapor that just might find itself in the cavity insulation? Not that it’s intentional for the insulation to be damp and need drying to the exterior, but the opportunity of drying reduces risk.”Not really, Holladay says: “The purpose of the ventilation channel is as a last-ditch method of keeping your sheathing dry in case your assembly has flaws. But you don’t want to build in any paths that allow or encourage vapor to flow toward your cold sheathing.” Spray-in foam works, tooGiven the difficulties of building in an effective ventilation chute, Roy asks, what about the possibility of using closed-cell foam directly on the underside of the roof sheathing?Closed-cell foam provides an air barrier, but to control condensation it must be applied to a minimum R-value, depending on what climate zone you’re building in, Holladay says. That ranges from R-5 in zones 1-3 to R-35 in zone 8. Making airtight ventilation chutesThe most effective ventilation chutes will be site-built, Holladay says. “Usually, the builder starts by tacking up 1″x1″ sticks in the upper corners of the rafter bays,” he writes. “Then rigid material (Celotex, thin plywood, or rigid foam) is installed against the sticks, with caulk or spray foam to make the installation airtight.”While providing an excellent air seal, these chutes are not the fastest to install, Holladay says.M S says chutes might be made from sheets of polyisocyanurate foam insulation, sealed at the seams with spray foam. The foam would simultaneously serve as baffle and insulation. By dense-packing the remainder of the rafter bays with cellulose, at R-4 per inch, the roof would be rated at R-39.“Now, as Martin suggests, overlay the face of your studs with rigid insulation, either polyiso or XPS,” M S says. “Putting up another 2 in. of polyiso gets you close to R-52.”center_img As GBA senior editor Martin Holladay points out, a 2×10 is really 9¼ in. deep. Using the values published by the National Association of Home Builders Research Center, mineral wool at a density of 2½ pounds per cubic foot would have an R-value of about 34 if it completely filled the rafter bay.The 2006 International Residential Code requires ceilings in Roy’s area (Climate Zone 5) to be insulated to at least R-38, Holladay says.If part of each rafter bay is dedicated to an air chute, reducing the amount of insulation that can be added, the numbers get worse. This means that whether Roy adds air chutes or not, he’ll need to find a way to add more insulation if he wants to meet IRC requirements. Q&A: Joe Lstiburek says, Don’t dense-pack unvented cathedral ceilings Q&A: Green way to insulate cathedral ceilings? Q&A: Is dense-packed cellulose an air barrier?Insulation Overview Debating the merits of ventilationDespite assurances from the insulation contractor, building codes won’t allow the kind of roof assembly Roy is contemplating.“According to my understanding of the International building codes, you can’t install an air-permeable insulation like mineral wool in a cathedral ceiling unless you first install ventilation chutes on the underside of the roof sheathing,” Holladay says. “Styrofoam ProperVents are too flimsy to withstand the pressure of dense-packed insulation, so you’ll probably want to install plastic AccuVent or site-built ventilation chutes.“It doesn’t make any sense to install soffit vents if you don’t have ventilation chutes between the top of the insulation and the bottom of the roof sheathing,” he adds. “If it were my house, I would install ventilation chutes (well sealed to prevent air leakage). I would also install 2 inches of foil-faced polyiso under the rafters, held in place with 1×4 strapping, and I would blow the mineral wool through holes in the polyiso.”A poster named M S directs Roy to an article by building scientist Joseph Lstiburek of the Building Science Corp., who says flatly: “As fantastic as the dense-pack approach is for walls, it is a pretty dumb approach for unvented cathedral ceilings and flat roofs. And, no matter how hard some of us work to try to stop people from going ahead and doing it, they persist on doing it. First, it is a building code violation. Second, it violates the physics.”It would seem Roy should abandon ship on whatever plans he had for dense-packing an unvented cathedral ceiling. So what’s the best way of adding ventilation? John Roy is building a house in southeastern Massachusetts, and at least part of it will have a cathedral ceiling. He’s thinking of insulating the ceiling with dense-packed rock wool.The president of a local insulation company tells him there’s no need to install air chutes in the rafter bays before the insulation is blown in because the insulation does not absorb water. The local building inspector is prepared to go along with the recommendation providing soffit vents are installed.Is Roy getting good advice? That’s what he’s asking in this Q&A post, the subject of this week’s Q&A Spotlight. Roof/Wall Connections for a Cold Climatelast_img read more

NFL week 11 guide to fantasy football

Posted on by

Play ‘em Shaun Hill (Detroit): Quarterback Matthew Stafford is hurt once again, which opens up the window of opportunity for Hill. Last week, Hill threw for 323 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Hill has now thrown for 300 yards or more yards in three games this season. Throw in the fact that Hill plays the Cowboys (21st-ranked pass defense), and Hill should be considered a starter, especially for teams fighting for a playoff spot or in need quarterback help. Ben Roethlisberger (Pittsburgh): Roethlisberger is coming off his best game statistically, last week against New England, when he had 387 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. Granted, the Steelers had to play catch up, but it was still impressive. Potentially losing Hines Ward to a head injury could decrease Big Ben’s value, but Mike Wallace is emerging as a solid wide receiver. Although Roethlisberger faces the second-best pass defense of Oakland, he had relative success against the Black Hole last year, throwing for 278 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. Peyton Hillis (Cleveland): Hillis had a slight setback in Week 10 against the Jets, with 82 rushing yards, one touchdown and a lost fumble. With that touchdown, Hillis has now found the end zone in all but one of the Browns’ nine games. Expect Hillis to get back on track against a Jacksonville defense that surrenders 115 rushing yards per game. Jamaal Charles (Kansas City): The Broncos did a nice job bottling up Charles last week, holding him to 14 carries for 41 yards. However, Charles managed 80 yards receiving with a touchdown. Going forward, Charles will continue to split carries with Thomas Jones but will be the focal point in the Chiefs’ offense. Consider Charles a No. 1 fantasy running back this week against Arizona, which allows the second-most fantasy points to opposing running backs and is coming off a 91-yard, touchdown performance by the Bucs’ LaGarrette Blount. Dez Bryant (Dallas): One player benefiting from Tony Romo’s injury has been Bryant. Last week, Bryant had 104 yards and a touchdown. As long as Jon Kitna is the starting quarterback, Bryant will remain a better option than Miles Austin. This week, Bryant faces a Lions defense that allows 233 passing yards per game. Bryant makes a solid No. 2 fantasy wide receiver option this week. Marques Colston (New Orleans): After a slow start to the 2010 season, Colston is starting to produce. In Week 9 against Carolina, Colston caught eight passes for 65 yards. Expect Colston to find the end zone against Seattle, which allows the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. Bench ‘em Matt Schaub (Houston): Schaub received treatment on his knee that forced a trip to the hospital this week. Last week, Schaub threw for 314 yards and two touchdowns against Jacksonville. Don’t expect a repeat performance against the Jets. Jay Cutler (Chicago): Cutler has potential to be a quality fantasy quarterback because of the Bears’ offense, but has not shown it yet. Last week against Minnesota, Cutler threw for 237 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions. Interceptions continue to be Cutler’s problem; he’s thrown nine. Until the Bears get a go-to receiver, Cutler will struggle. Matt Forte (Chicago): Forte continues to get a lot of touches but is unable to pile up the yardage. Last week, Forte had 21 carries for 69 yards. Forte is losing goal-line carries to Chester Taylor and has yet to score a touchdown since Week 6 against Seattle. Forte is too inconsistent to start each week. Brandon Jackson (Green Bay): Jackson showed some versatility in Week 9 against Dallas, with 42 rushing yards, 26 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Jackson won’t put up big numbers against a Vikings defense that allows 100 rushing yards per game and hasn’t allowed a rushing touchdown in two straight games. Mike Williams (Seattle): Williams had a broken pinkie but still had 145 receiving yards last week. Like Forte, Williams’ problem is inconsistency, with three double-digit receiving games versus four games with fewer than two catches. Williams’ production will dip if Matt Hasselbeck is not starting. This week, Williams faces a Saints defense that allows the fewest amount of fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers (9). Chad Ochocinco (Cincinnati): Ocho is battling a shoulder injury but regardless of health, Ocho is a bench player. In his last game against Buffalo, he had three receptions for 48 yards. Also, the Bills have a surprisingly stout pass defense, allowing just 207 yards per game. Expect Terrell Owens to get the majority of the looks against his former team. read more
