South Korea will start letting limited numbers of fans back into baseball and football stadiums, an official said Friday, as authorities seek to restore normality after the coronavirus crisis.The country endured one of the worst early outbreaks outside China but appears to have brought it broadly under control with an extensive “trace, test and treat” program while never imposing a compulsory lockdown.Social distancing rules were relaxed in early May and some professional sports — including baseball and football — started new seasons behind closed doors. Topics :center_img From Sunday, fans will be allowed to fill about 10 percent of seats at professional baseball games, said Yoon Tae-ho of the Central Disaster Management Headquarters.The same proportion will be allowed at football matches from August 1, he added.”All tickets will be pre-sold online to record who is being admitted to the stadiums, and every spectator will be required to wear a mask” throughout the games, Yoon told reporters.The South’s daily new infections tally has varied between around 25 to 60 in recent weeks, mostly in the Seoul metropolitan area where half of the population lives.last_img read more

Cricket News Sledging in cricket is not new, says Syed Kirmani

first_imgBengaluru: Former India wicket-keeper batsman Syed Kirmani Friday said sledging in cricket is something which is not new and has been prevalent since the game’s inception. Kirmani’s remark came in the backdrop of veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah’s criticism of India captain Virat Kohli’s on-field behaviour during the ongoing Test series Down Under. Kirmani said Kohli’s aggressive on-field behaviour is his natural instinct.“Naseeruddin Shah, and everybody else have their opinions. Everybody looks at things with different perspective. So, I have nothing to contradict with what Naseeruddin Shah has to say about Kohli. Look, there are natural instincts embedded in everybody. Those natural instincts in their blood cannot be changed,” he said here.Also read | What must Virat Kohli’s India do to win the Melbourne Test and series in Australia?“We never had the advantage of IT and third umpire, but we played cricket in gentlemen’s spirit. I am very proud of it. However, there was sledging in our time too. It will not die,” Kirmani added.Kirmani was replying to a question on Shah’s comments about Kohli on the sidelines of 100-year celebration of Bangalore United Cricket Club. Shah, on December 18, had slammed Kohli by calling him the world’s “worst behaved batsman” in a tweet.The last sentence of Shah’s post was in reference to Kohli’s recent social media post, asking cricket fans to leave India, who admired foreign cricketers. Kirmani also said introduction of fines by third umpires proves that the game is not played in gentleman’s spirit now.Also read | Virat Kohli continues to rule the cricketing world – latest ICC rankings are proofKohli was caught embroiled in an ugly spat with his Australian counterpart Tim Paine during the ongoing series Don Under.
