Warner recovering from neck blow says Lehmann

first_img(REUTERS) – Australia opening batsman David Warner is recovering well after being struck in the neck by a bouncer from team mate Josh Hazlewood and should be fit for the upcoming two-Test series in Bangladesh, coach Darren Lehmann said yesterday.The left-hander dropped his bat and slumped to his knees after an attempted hook shot went awry at Marrara Oval in Darwin on Tuesday, but quickly picked himself up and walked off the ground unassisted.With the squad set to depart for Bangladesh tomorrow ahead of the first Test in Dhaka, which starts on August 27, Lehmann expected Warner to board the flight.“He seems alright, walking around the ground today, so fingers crossed he’ll be okay and we’ll get an update in the next day or two,” Lehmann told reporters.“It’s always a scare when that happens, isn’t it? Hopefully he’s going to be OK.”last_img read more

Hypersuit and Join win gaming and esports start-ups contest in Paris

first_imgThe esports and gaming edition of RockTech Paris took place in Paris late last week, and welcomed 100 participants for the industry.In partnership with Orange & Reed Smith, RockTech Paris #Gaming & #Esport put seven startups specialised in video games and esports in the spotlight. They were each given three minutes to pitch their business in front of the audience and to a jury of potential partners and investors composed of Index Ventures, Orange, Riot Games, Trust Esport Ventures and Meltdown. The two winners of this edition were:Hypersuit (France): ‘Creating ultra-sensational VR Gaming technologies’Join (France): ‘First data marketing platform that helps advertisers to optimise their esports media campaigns’Hypersuit was selected as the best startup by the all-star jury, which included Matthieu Dallon, whereas Join was selected by the audience in a democratic voting process. These two beat off an impressive selection of start-ups which also included StriveWire, Gameblr, Yalla and Matecrate.Hypersuit is a prototype which gives users the experience of flying. It’s a fully immersive experience, and one which is understandably generating ample attention.Both the RockTech Paris winners will receive personalised mentoring from RockTech partners Orange and Reed Smith, as well as tickets for our own ESI Super Forum. This one day conference is focused on the convergence of traditional sports and esports, and will take place on March 22nd in London.Hypersuit specifically will also benefit from three months of incubation at Paris&CO, a new incubator dedicated to esports.This edition of RockTech Paris also saw a Q&A with PandaScore Founder Flavien Guillocheau and a sit-down with Team Vitality CEO Nicolas Maurer. Vitality recently secured a significant investment to the tune of €2.5m (£2.2m) and announced a deal with Renault at last week’s Esports BAR in Cannes. Amongst a host of other topics Maurer commented on their hiring policy and stated that they often ‘look to hire from outside esports’ for business oriented roles, and he also noted that he ‘really believes in mobile esports’. The team already has rosters in Arena of Valor and Clash Royale, but perhaps we should we expect a Vainglory team from the French organisation sometime soon?Maurer is amongst the speakers at next month’s ESI Super Forum in London, and attendees will hear more from him there where he’ll be joined by an excellent panel including Nikolaj Nyholm, CEO of RFRSH and Ben Woodward, Co-Founder of Code Red Agency. Esports Insider says: This was an excellent start-ups focused event with good content, and solid pitches across the board. The jury took their time in the decision making process and so congratulations to Hypersuit for coming out on top. Join clearly impressed the audience too, and sounds like a company well positioned to make some moves in 2018 as more and more brands launch esports campaigns.last_img read more

A.J. Puk promotion carries major wild card implications for A’s

first_imgThe long-awaited influx of top prospects is finally underway for the A’s, who have been forced to wait to debut their two best young arms due to injury setbacks.Ahead of Tuesday’s game against the Yankees, Oakland will reportedly promote left-hander A.J. Puk from Triple-A in hopes he’ll shore up an inconsistent bullpen. Puk, the No. 6 overall pick in the 2016 MLB Draft, is eventually expected to become a starter for the organization. For now, though, his high-90s fastball and sharp slider could make him a primary late-inning option for manager Bob Melvin at a crucial point in the season. MORE: A’s ‘very happy’ post-deadline despite apparent bullpen holesShould the A’s make the wild card, Puk would additionally have the chance to join a historic list of first-year pitchers to break through in October. There are several of those potential hurlers in MLB this season, most notably Dodgers rookie Dustin May, who is also slated to log significant postseason innings.Oakland was 1 ½ games back of the Rays for the second wild card entering Monday. When the A’s were unable to complete a deadline deal for another relief pitcher at the July 31 deadline — despite attempting to do so — they held hope Puk and fellow left-handed prospect Jesus Luzardo could emerge. Luzardo is on a rehab assignment from a strained lat and is in position to join the MLB roster soon.Oakland’s bullpen has been shaky at times over the past month, though its most problematic arms banded together for seven scoreless frames in an extra-inning victory this past Friday against the division rival Astros. Last year’s closer, Blake Treinen, has a 4.67 ERA. Top 2018 setup man Lou Trivino has a 4.75 ERA. There is room for Puk to grab high-leverage opportunities within a couple of weeks.last_img read more
