  • Former England captain Michael Vaughan has reacted to the troubling year that has engulfed Cricket South Africa.
  • He stated that South Africa had “failed” in their attempt to create a secure bio-bubble for the England series which could jeopardise future tours.
  • Vaughan firmly believes that Australia will not tour South Africa next year for a planned Test series.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan wants Cricket South Africa (CSA) to get its house in order after a troubled year.

Vaughan was reacting to England’s ODI series against the Proteas which was called off following coronavirus issues.

The tour adopted a bio-secure bubble in Cape Town and it was the Proteas’ first experience of hosting and taking part as a team in a bio-secure environment.

The bubble, however, was not successful as three Proteas and two hotel staff members from the team’s base,

  • Nancy
    Pelosi was re-elected to the position of US Speaker of the House – her fourth,
    non-consecutive term.
  • Pelosi
    narrowly beat out Republican leader Kevin McCarthy for the House speaker role.
  • Democrats
    currently have one of the slimmest House majorities in two decades, 222 to 211
    with two vacancies.

Washington
– Nancy Pelosi, the only woman to serve as US Speaker of the House, was
narrowly re-elected to the position on Sunday in a deeply divided new Congress
that convened in the final weeks of Donald Trump’s presidency.

Pelosi,
80, faced a scare when five fellow Democrats defected and voted
“present” or for someone else during the floor vote.

But
the woman who is third in line to the presidency secured her fourth – and
perhaps final – non-consecutive term as House speaker by earning 216 votes
versus 209 for Republican leader Kevin McCarthy.

White House coronavirus task force warns some Covid-19 strains ‘may have evolved into a more transmissible virus’

Posted on

“This fall/winter surge has been at nearly twice the rate of rise of cases as the spring and summer surges. This acceleration and the epidemiologic data suggest the possibility that some strains of the US COVID-19 virus may have evolved into a more transmissible virus,” reports sent to states dated January 10 and obtained by CNN said.

The report continued, “Given that possibility, and the presence of the UK variant that is already spreading in our communities and may be 50% more transmissible, we must be ready for and mitigate a much more rapid transmission.”

LeBron James says ‘it would be great’ for LA Lakers to visit the White House

Posted on

It had become a tradition for the reigning champion to visit the US president in the season following its triumph, albeit one that’s taken a brief hiatus during Donald Trump’s time in office.

James’ Cleveland Cavaliers were the last team to fulfill the tradition when the players met Barack Obama in 2016 but the Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors both since declined invites to meet Trump.

In 2018, the Warriors decided instead to visit the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in lieu of the traditional White House trip.

However, following the Lakers’ victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday, James said he would be happy to meet Joe Biden’s new administration but questioned whether current health and safety regulations would allow it.

The Lakers would have the possibility to visit the White House when it plays the Washington Wizards in the second half of the
