After being snubbed from the recently announced 20-man squad for the England tour, Prithvi Shaw had to face another setback as this time he was travelling to Goa without an e-pass.
With the horrendous corona pandemic raving havoc, Maharashtra has imposed lockdown like restrictions and asked the citizens to take a mandatory e-pass from the Government in case they want to leave their homes.
About 39,923 new COVID-19 cases were recorded on Friday, with the death toll rising to 695 for the day.
These unprecedented time made it necessary for the State to take strict measures allowing only essential movement.
Shaw was en route to Goa and stopped by the police administration in the Amboli district. The budding cricketer was stalled for over an hour for failing to apply for the e-pass. Shaw exercised the guidance of the police and requested an e-mandate through his phone.
The authorities immediately issued him one, and the 21-year-old was allowed to continue his journey after receiving the clearance.
Earlier, former Indian cricketer, Akash Chopra had expressed his disappointment on and England Tour.
During an interview with ESPNcricinfo, Chopra suggested that the youngster would have been dismayed at his exclusion since the latter hasn’t received many opportunities after failing to make a mark in the Adelaide Test.
“If I was Prithvi Shaw, I would be slightly surprised and disappointed. I’d actually be thinking ‘you haven’t given me so many opportunities. Since the Adelaide Test when I got out for 0 and 2, I have not played a single Test,” said Chopra.
Cameron Bancroft, Australia cricketer has reportedly hinted that there may have been “an awareness” about the ball-tampering incident among Australian bowlers.

Cameron Bancroft, Australia cricketer has reportedly hinted that there may have been “an awareness” about the ball-tampering incident among Australian bowlers.
Cameron Bancroft, who was caught on camera rubbing the ball with sandpaper before shoving it in his pants during the 2018 Test against South Africa in Cape Town, was handed a six-month ban for his role in the scandal that rocked Cricket Australia.
Cameron Bancroft Learnt From Ball Tempering Mistake And Should Have Made A Much Better Decision If He Had Better Awareness
But during an interview with The Guardian, Cameron Bancroft was asked if any of the bowlers knew about it. In his response, the Australian batsman said that he is responsible for his own actions, but added that there probably was an “awareness” about it.
The CA found captain Steven Smith and vice-captain David Warner also involved in the scandal and both the cricketers were also handed a 12-month ban for their roles.
“Yeah, look, all I wanted to do was to be responsible and accountable for my own actions and part. Yeah, obviously what I did benefits bowlers, and the awareness around that, probably, is self-explanatory,” he said.
“I guess one thing I learnt through the journey and being responsible is that’s where the buck stops [with Bancroft himself]. Had I had better awareness I would have made a much better decision,” he added.
When asked again in clear terms, “So some of the bowlers did know?”, Bancroft, as per the report, hesistantly replied: “Uh … yeah, look, I think, yeah, I think it’s pretty probably self-explanatory.”
Steven Smith and David Warner returned to the national team’s fold just before the 2019 ODI World Cup, while Cameron Bancroft has since struggled to break back in.
Three years since the Cape Town Test, Cameron Bancroft, while not having taken any names, has seemingly admitted that Australia’s bowling attack consisting of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, Nathan Lyon, and Mitchell Marsh knew he was scuffing the ball up with sandpaper.
Cameron Bancroft Disappointed With His Actions For Letting Australia Down
Speaking further on the incident, Cameron Bancroft said that he was disappointed about his actions, but has learned from his mistakes.
“In purely cricketing terms it makes me feel a little shit. I was just settling and then, of course, it was lost.
“I was obviously disappointed because I’d let the team down and carried out an act that completely compromised my values. But it came down for me just when I was really improving at that level. It felt like I’d thrown a lot away.
“I hadn’t got a Test 100 yet but I felt I was on my way to achieving that, so I was extremely disappointed to give that up. But that’s how important that part of my life was then. I’ve come to learn that it is important but it doesn’t dictate my life in the same way,” he added.
“I invested too much to the point where I lost control of my values. What had become important to me was being liked, being well valued, feeling really important to my teammates, like I was contributing something by using sandpaper on a cricket ball.
“That’s something I don’t think I even understood until that mistake happened. But it’s part of the journey and a hard lesson I needed to learn,” Bancroft further said.
“Yes. It doesn’t condone, whatsoever, the mistake I made but in terms of all I’ve learned about myself and life, I’m almost grateful for the mistake in a way. It’s been an interesting journey and I wouldn’t change it for the world. It changed me and I’ve become the person I am today.
“It’s also taught me to deal with the anxiety and disappointment that comes with cricket and everyday life. There are always going to be challenges. It’s how you’re able to stay as balanced as possible when that happens,” he signed off.
The trio of Cameron Bancroft, Steven Smith, and David Warner were banned for their roles in the ball-tampering scandal. While Cameron Bancroft was handed a nine-month ban, then skipper Steven Smith and his deputy David Warner were suspended for a year each.
Cricket Australia also slapped , who was declared the plotter-in-chief, with a lifetime leadership ban while Steven Smith was banned from leading Australia for two years. Head coach Darren Lehmann also resigned in the aftermath of the scandal.
Despite winning the league title in 2019-20, Real Madrid had something of a player purge last summer.
Zinedine Zidane’s side shipped out both established and youth team players, simultaneously trying to free up space in the squad and reduce the wage bill in light of their growing financial concerns.
But how have those players done? We’ve looked at how all 10 have done at their new clubs.

Imre Szijan is a Hungarian activist and writer living in Berlin. Is this finally the time the European Union stands up to Viktor Orbán? In the more than a decade the Hungarian prime minister has been in power, independent institutions, universities, the press and minority communities have all been under constant attack. This time, it’s Hungary’s LGBTQ+ community that’s in Orbán’s sights — but if the past is anything to go by, the EU is unlikely to do much about it. The deployment of starvation tactics against asylum seekers in Hungarian detention facilities was not enough to trigger serious sanctions against the Orbán regime. Nor was the expulsion of the Central European University (CEU), amid an anti-Semitic smear campaign targeting its founder, George Soros....

There are currently around 14,000 migrants in federal custody, and officials are building up the capacity to care for them. Since Biden’s inauguration, the U.S. has seen a dramatic spike in the number of people crossing the border.

Adam Isacson, an analyst at the Washington Office on Latin America, told the Associated Press that the surge in migrants...
