Bennifer from 2003 is a summer 2021 vibe.
Australian cricket has been plunged back into the ball-tampering crisis of three years ago just as Steve Smith hopes to regain the captaincy he lost after the cheating incident in Cape Town. Cameron Bancroft, the opening batsman who was caught scuffing the ball with sandpaper, indicated in an interview with the Guardian at the weekend that the bowlers also knew what was going on. Only Bancroft, Smith and David Warner were found guilty of any involvement in the incident at the time. Cricket Australia responded to Bancroft’s comments by issuing a statement saying they would look into any new evidence. Now David Saker, who was the Australia bowling coach at the time, has hinted — in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald — at collective responsibility and wider knowledge of what was going on. “The disappointing thing is it’s never going to go away. Regardless of what’s said. We all know that we made a monumental mistake. The gravity wasn’t as plain until it all came out,” he said. “There were a lot of people to blame. It could have been me to blame, it could have been someone else. It could have been stopped and it wasn’t, which is unfortunate.” Saker believes the ball-tampering affair will dog Australian cricket for decades, and drew parallels with the under-arm incident involving Trevor Chappell in 1981. Bancroft, currently playing for Durham, was banned for nine months for his part in the incident and has not played for Australia since losing his place during the 2019 Ashes. “Uh … yeah, look, I think, yeah, I think it’s pretty probably self-explanatory,” he said when asked if the bowlers knew what was going on in Cape Town. The dredging up of the ball-tampering saga could not come at a worse time for Smith as his bid to regain the captaincy gathers momentum. A month ago he publicly declared he would like his old job back when Tim Paine steps down, probably at the end of this winter’s Ashes series. Paine also backed Smith for the job. It could also be potentially embarrassing for Pat Cummins, Paine’s deputy and Smith’s main rival for the job, because he was part of the bowling attack in Cape Town. But despite the statement from CA there is unlikely to be any great desire to reopen the case. An inquiry found that Smith, David Warner and Bancroft were the guilty players. Darren Lehmann resigned as head coach. James Sutherland stood down as CA’s chief executive and performance director Pat Howard left his role as part of sweeping changes at the top of Australian cricket. The investigation only focussed on the Cape Town Test and did not look into whether there had been any previous examples of ball tampering. Alastair Cook wrote in his book in 2019 that Warner admitted to ball tampering during a first-class match in the 2017-18 Ashes when it was noticeable the Australian attack found more swing than England. “David Warner, a couple of beers into his celebration, mentioned that he used substances attached to the strapping on his hand to accelerate the deterioration of the ball during a first-class match,” wrote Cook. “I looked at Steve Smith who shot a glance that said: ‘Ooh, you shouldn’t have said that,”

Investors with losses are encouraged to contact the firm before May 17, 2021; click here to submit trade information LOS ANGELES, May 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Portnoy Law Firm advises investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Bellus Health, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLU) investors that acquired shares between September 5, 2019 and July 5, 2020. Investors have until May 17, 2021 to seek an active role in this litigation. Investors are encouraged to contact attorney Lesley F. Portnoy, to determine eligibility to participate in this action, by phone 310-692-8883 or email, or click here to join the case. Before the market opened on July 6, 2020, BELLUS announced topline results from its Phase 2 RELIEF trial of BLU-5937 in patients with refractory chronic cough. According to Bellus, the trial “did not achieve statistical significance for the primary endpoint of reduction in placebo-adjusted cough frequency at any dose tested.” Bellus’ stock price fell $9.05, or 75%, on this news, over two consecutive trading sessions to close at $2.97 on July 8, 2020, thereby injuring investors. It is alleged in this complaint that Bellus made materially misleading and/or false statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about Bellus’ business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, the complaint alleges that Bellus knew, and failed to disclose, that while BLU-5937’s “high selectivity” contributed to the drug causing little to no taste alteration in chronic cough patients, high selectivity also contributed to the drug potentially being less efficacious and thus likely not be able to meet the primary endpoint of the Company’s Phase 2 trial. A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than May 17, 2021.
