Marcus Stoinis on Wednesday became only the second batsman to be run out on 99 in T20 cricket as Brisbane Heat successfully defended 206 to open their Big Bash League campaign with a win against Melbourne Stars.Chasing 207 for a win, Stoinis top-scored with 99 off 51 balls with six boundaries and as many sixes but his valiant knock went in vain as Stars ended up with 191 for 6 in 20 overs, 15 runs short of the target.19-year-old Pakistan leg-spinner Shadab Khan starred with the ball for Brisbane with two wickets in his four overs while Josh Lalor, Mark Steketee and Brendan Doggett struck once each to round off a comprehensive performance for last season’s semi-finalists.James Faulkner remained unbeaten on 47 and it was his 137-run partnership with Stoinis which saw the match going right down to the wire before Brisbane managed to pull off victory.Earlier, Brisbane managed to go past the 200-run mark mainly due to a brilliant half-century from Al Ross (51 off 36 balls) and Joe Burns (50 off 28 balls) helped the hosts pile on 206 for 7 after being put into bat at the Gabba.Former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum (40 off 22 balls) and Ben Cutting (35 off 18 balls) also played swashbuckling knocks in the first innings.Stoinis was adjudged Man of the Match for his performance. Brisbane climbed to the top of the table owing to a better net run-rate than Sydney Thunder, who defeated Sydney Sixers in the opening match on Tuesday.

The Deputy Governor, H.E. Anya Williams, was also part of his delegation. Following his visit H.E. the Governor commented:“It was a great pleasure to visit South Caicos again. I was able to see for myself the damage still evident from the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria over the island. Making repairs to homes and public buildings remains a real challenge for the local community.I also visited two local conch and lobster processing plants and witnessed the determination of both businesses to get back to normal. I saw for myself the efforts being made by Sailrock, not only to repair damage to their own resort buildings but also to provide assistance to the local community.And I saw once again the real promise of local young people during my time at the Iris Stubbs Primary and at the Marjorie Basden High School. South Caicos is a great island with huge potential and I and my wife were grateful for the opportunity once more to see that potential for ourselves.”Press Release: TCIG Related Items:
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has urged UEFA to take action against clubs if they break the rules on Financial Fair Play.German magazine Der Spiegel claims Sheikh Mansour’s City regime added multi-million-pound sponsorship deals with Abu Dhabi companies and using their owner’s fortune to meet UEFA’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) stipulations.Last Friday, the Football Leaks emerged with allegations that City were given an FFP settlement when they received sanctions for overspending by UEFA in 2014, and although the club declined to comment on what was called “out of context materials purportedly hacked or stolen from City Football Group and Manchester City”, it claimed “the attempt to damage the club’s reputation is organized and clear.”On his own, Klopp feels UEFA should take appropriate actions when clubs breache the rules, stating that the rules are a good thing for football when enforced.“I heard about the Der Spiegel story, but I didn’t read it so far,” Klopp said as quoted by Goal.Report: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“It’s really difficult to comment but what I can say in general is that FFP is a really good thing. But we always thought that.”“If it’s in place, they (UEFA) have to do something with it. I have no clue what happens, I know it is about Paris obviously and Man City,” he said.“I’m not sure if other clubs are being talked about as well. That’s all I can say. I think FFP is a really good thing because it sets the rules and stuff like that.”“If everything is fine, then everything is fine. If not, then somebody should do something.”
