Sprinkler full go this morning, passed it at 10.30 and again on the way back at 11.45. Pitch looks lovely and green but so does Royal Ashleigh golf course just over the road. Heatwave will be over by Monday, so its hardly needed and why during the day, its the worst time to do it?

There are 3 possibilities for the water:
- recycled from the pool, which I doubt as there are chemicals in it
- stored in a large tank, after getting it off the pool roof, which would be a great solution
- off the water mains, bad show if it is, even though we're not under a hosepipe ban

Tanni G-T just said that the wheel chairs they race in, can cost between 10K and 40K USD. That and the cost of the prosthetic limbs, then its hardly a level playing field if you're not from a UK nation, Oz, NZ, Canada or S.A.

Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying seeing everybody competing together under their respective flags but the poorer nations ain't got a hope when it comes to the medals table.

Cardiff move to cut debts by £19m

Cardiff City are looking to convert another £19m of debt into equity as part of renewed attempts to tackle their accounts.

The club has issued 1.9billion new shares at 1p each, with the announcement coming quietly through Companies House on Tuesday. In principal, sources claim the move will effectively wipe £19m off the club's overall debts, which according to their latest accounts stand at £109.5m for the year ending May 31, 2021.

It follows a similar move made in February, where owner Vincent Tan converted another £6m of the £61m owed to him after the club's debts grew due to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Chairman Mehmet Dalman at one stage stated Tan had effectively to put his hand in his pocket to the tune of nearly £3m a month to keep the club running, putting the brakes on a pledge made by the Malaysian back in 2016, where he insisted he'd try and make Cardiff debt-free within five years.

But this latest bid to convert further debt into equity suggests he's perhaps keen to push ahead with that pledge.

Cardiff have been approached by Wales Online for a comment.

It's understood that while the new move will help to cut the club's debts, in likelihood it will have little impact on City's transfer efforts this summer.

Cardiff boss Steve Morison has already been busy in the transfer market, having brought 12 new players on board, and is still keen on bringing in a new striker before the start of the season, which kicks off with a tough home clash with newly-relegated Norwich City.

This latest announcement is unlikely to have any bearing on that search, although there is believed to be confidence among the hierarchy and Morison himself that attacking reinforcements will be brought on board, although it will more than likely be on loan.

Fake Inidan cricket league
at 20:51 11 Jul 2022

Ok, I just love their ingenuity and bloomin cheek plus the only mugs to fall for it were Russian

Police in India have arrested a group of conmen who set up a fake version of cricket's Indian Premier League (IPL) and fooled gamblers in Russia.

Punters parted with more than 300,000 rupees (almost $4,000), police said.

The conmen staged the match on a farm in Gujarat, paying labourers to pose as players, sporting jerseys of real IPL teams, with a bogus umpire instructed to signal a boundary or wicket.

They even hired a man to mimic famous cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle.

Players were paid around 400 rupees ($5) per game and broadcast the matches live over a YouTube channel called IPL.

The channel would never show a wide shot of the pitch, and crowd noise sound effects were downloaded from the internet and played through a speaker.

The tournament began three weeks after the actual IPL concluded in May, police said.

Despite this, the conmen managed to reach the quarter-finals stage of their so-called "Indian Premier Cricket League" before police stopped play.

Russian gamblers placed bets on a Telegram channel set up by the gang, who then alerted the fake umpire using walkie-talkies, police inspector Bhavesh Rathod told reporters.

The fake umpire would then "signal the bowler and batsman to hit a six, four or get out", Mr Rathod said.

Police have arrested four people in connection with the case.

Betting on cricket is illegal in India, and the suspects have been charged with criminal conspiracy and gambling.
