Zampa was seen taking something out of his pocket before bowling.Fans on social media immediately started to talk about the incident and some even claimed that Zampa was tampering with the ball during his spell.Adam Zampa tamper with ball against India ! @ICC @BCCI @cricketworldcup @imVkohli @msdhoni @sachin_rt @SGanguly99 @virendersehwag @cricketcomau pic.twitter.com/uKFJ612hKrSagar Tayde (@SagarTa47360539) June 9, 2019Did #AdamZampa just tampered the Ball ?? #CWC19 #INDvAUS#TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/dRHcOxp1NUSP (@SuneelPofficial) June 9, 2019But Australia captain Aaron Finch revealed after the match that Zampa had hand warmers in his pockets, which he carries in every game. Zampa went wicketless in the match and conceded 50 runs from his 6 overs.”I haven’t seen the photos, but I know that he has hand warmers in his pocket. He has them every single game he plays. I honestly haven’t seen them, so I can’t comment too much on it. But I know for a fact that he has hand warmers every game,” Finch said at the post-match press conference after Australia’s 36-run loss against India in London.The video footage and pictures immediately brought back memories of the Cape Town Test between South Africa and Australia last year when Cameron Bancroft was caught rubbing sandpaper on the ball on the big screen at the ground.advertisementBancroft was suspended for 9 months by Cricket Australia for that incident while then-Australia captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner were banned for a year each.The tainted duo of Warner and Smith made their comeback into the national team at the World Cup this year and have been booed by the crowd in England on several occasions already.Even on Sunday, Steve Smith was booed by a section of the crowd at The Oval following which India captain Virat Kohli asked the crowd to stop.If I was in a position where something had happened with me, and I’d apologised and accepted it, and came back and still I would get booed, I wouldn’t like it either.#ViratKohli on why he asked the fans to stop booing Steve Smith. #CWC19 | #INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/CIMicjoSA0Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 9, 2019India crushed Australia by 36 runs to register their second successive victory and bring an end to Australia’s 10-match unbeaten streak in ODIs. The defending champions had won both their games before losing to India in this World Cup.India rode on opener Shikhar Dhawan (117) and captain Kohli’s (82) knocks to post a mammoth 352 for 5 after winning the toss and then bowled out Australia for 316 with Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah taking 3 wickets each. The defending champions had won both their games before losing to India in this World Cup while India had defeated South Africa in their opening match.”Just one of those games, they outplayed us. You look at everything (when asked if he’d change the combination). You assess the conditions; you look for different combinations and different balances over time.”They got 120 off the last 10 overs and which is a lot. We didn’t bowl well. With so much batting to come, makes it tough to stop. There wasn’t huge amount on offer (help for the bowlers). We could have been straighter, dried up (runs) a little bit at times. They (India) bat very deep, you want to go for wickets, Finch told in the post match presentation,” Finch said at the post-match presentation.Also Read | India outplayed us, says Aaron Finch after defeatAlso Read | Apologised to Steve Smith on behalf of crowd, says Virat KohliAlso Read | Cricket World Cup 2019: Points TallyAlso Read | Sachin Tendulkar questions Australia tactics in failed run chase vs Indialast_img read more

first_img “The sessions really took persons through an idea to determine whether it is really needed in the market, and how it is that they can go all the way through the process of commercialisation,” she noted. Coordinator for the Science and Technology Education Unit at the SRC, Amanda McKenzie, explained to JIS News that the sessions took the format of a panel discussion. Story Highlights More than 200 students and teachers participated in ideation sessions held recently to prepare them for the Scientific Research Council (SRC) National Science and Technology Fair.The three sessions, which were held in Kingston, Montego Bay and Mandeville, provided a forum for participants to identify key challenges affecting sectors in Jamaica and possible solutions.Coordinator for the Science and Technology Education Unit at the SRC, Amanda McKenzie, explained to JIS News that the sessions took the format of a panel discussion.Following this, ideas from the discussion were pitched and analysed to determine the feasibility of the ideas.“The sessions really took persons through an idea to determine whether it is really needed in the market, and how it is that they can go all the way through the process of commercialisation,” she noted.“For the Fair, we don’t want persons to come up with ideas that are not necessarily relevant at this time, so the sessions were to provide that sort of brainstorming session that would first identify the gaps that currently exist, what we can expect in the future, and how it is we can now, through foresight, develop innovative solutions to address [these],” she added.Students and teachers were exposed to presenters from various industries representing the categories of the Science Fair, including energy, health, security and food and agro-processing.Ms. McKenzie said there was a representative from the Montego Bay Marine Park who looked at the environmental conditions in Jamaica, and challenged persons to come up with ideas and solutions to mitigate these.Additionally, the students and teachers were exposed to an entrepreneurial perspective with the inclusion of entrepreneurs in the fields of nutraceuticals, agriculture, entertainment and photography.“This [entrepreneurship] is important because this is something that we are really pushing for persons, especially for the youth to get involved in,” Ms. McKenzie explained.She further added that this is a key component of the ‘Youth Employment in the Digital and Animation Industry’ (YEDAI) project, with which the Council is partnering this year to stage the National Science and Technology Fair.“We realise that there is a high rate of migration; especially for individuals that have attained tertiary-level education, there is a low innovation index in Jamaica, and even in cases where persons have developed items, products and services, there is not enough support, guidance or resources available to them,” Ms. McKenzie said.She noted that the sessions sought to provide persons with information to let them know of the potential that they “can tap into, benefit from and generate employment for themselves and other persons”.The sessions were held between April 19 and May 2.The National Science and Technology Fair is scheduled for June 12, with a registration deadline of May 18.For more information, persons may send an email to steu@src-jamaica.org or they may call 876-927-1771-4.
