    Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag, who was one of the frontrunners for the position of Team India coach, almost won the job, but for a proposal to bring along with him a team of support staff, it has been reported.

    As per a Times of India report, Sehwag wanted to bring along with him a team of support staff that would include physiotherapist Amit Tyagi and Mithun Manhas. Both Tyagi and Manas work with Sehwag at Kings XI Punjab, where the former opening batsman is the mentor.

    The report added that India captain Virat Kohli and the team had made it clear that they would not interfere with the Cricket Advisory Committee’s (CAC) decision.

    Sehwag, one of the five candidates who went for the interview, gave the third best presentation after eventual winner of the job Ravi Shastri and Tom Moody's.

    An insider even told TOI that Kohli encouraged Sehwag to apply. “Of course, Viru paa. Your contribution to Indian cricket is great and we're all so familiar with you. I have no problems whatsoever in you applying for the role. Anybody who thinks he can contribute his best for Indian cricket can and should apply," Kohli told Sehwag.

    However, when Sehwag mentioned that he would be bringing his support staff, Kohli expressed reservations. “Paaji, I have a lot of respect for you for what you can bring to the table but you have to understand that there is a professional set-up in place, therefore this cannot happen. The rest is up to the CAC," Kohli said, according to the insider.  

    "What went in Shastri's favour was also the fact that he understood the importance of the work ethic put in place by the existing support staff members who have worked with the team for close to three years," the source added.

    India and Tamil Nadu off-spinner Ravichandran has improved a lot and is a smart cricketer, legendary Sri Lanka bowler Muttiah Muralitharan said today.

    "Ashwin has improved a lot in the recent past. He played really well in the recent matches. He has the experience and talent to showcase his skills in the upcoming ones. In fact, according to me, he is a smart cricketer. Looking forward to see his performance," he told reporters on the sidelines of an TNPL event here.

    Muralitharan, who holds the record for most Test wickets, however, said the Lanka team's performances in the recent time were not very good.

    "I am happy that the present Sri Lankan team is absolutely new. But I can notice the team is slacking a bit in overall performance these days. They should solve all their problems themselves and build on the reputation of the team.

    The retirement of Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene and myself both from Test and ODI cricket has weakened the team but they need to move on," he said.

    He said he was looking forward to his role as mentor of TNPL franchise VB Thiruvallur Veerans and hoped to guide the young players to the best of his ability.

    "I am happy to be a part of this wonderful team. All the players have got a great opportunity to showcase their skills in the upcoming league matches. Though I am not a full-fledged coach, I will surely guide them in the best possible manner," he added.

    About the return of Chennai Super Kings to the IPL fold, Murali said, "I have been associated with the team for quite a long time. But in the near future, if I again get an opportunity to work with CSK, I will enthusiastically do it,' he said.

    To a question as to why spinners were doing better when compared to the pacers, he said, "Spinners always have a lot of opportunity in cricket. But to be honest, the world has a lot of highly talented spinners which is the actual reason." He also spoke about his association with Tamil Nadu and said, "I always prefer to be here. My grandparents are from Namakkal and I am also, right now, doing business in Tiruchirappalli. Many of my relatives are also from the state."

    Chris Grayling says he'll do all he can to make Crossrail 2 work Transport secretary Chris Grayling has said he will do everything he can to make Crossrail 2 work, despite concerns that Transport for London's (TfL) funding package for the £31bn project hadn't "lived up to initial promises".

    During yesterday's parliamentary questions, he was posed a question by the Labour MP for Cambridge Daniel Zeichner, who asked about Crossrail 2's omission from the Conservative manifesto, and when a decision would be made on TfL's business case and funding proposals.

    Grayling said:

    Firstly I absolutely support the need for the capacity improvements that Crossrail 2 will bring to London, and indeed not just to London; to areas outside.

    We are working our way through the business case; I don't think it's any secret that the TfL funding package hasn't quite lived up to initial promises but I want this to work, I'm seeing the mayor next week, and we'll do everything we can to make it work.

    It is the second boost to Crossrail 2 proponents over the past week, after Treasury minister Liz Truss had the rail project added to her responsibilities when portfolios were updated last week.

    The General Election had pushed back the prospective timeline for Crossrail 2, while speculation over the project's future grew with its omission from the Conservative manifesto and Queen's speech.

    The funding proposals have also been a key sticking point. While TfL has said London can provide half the costs for the project, the department for transport wanted the capital to demonstrate it can foot half the cost during construction. Many of the initially floated proposals would only be retrievable once Crossrail 2 is up and running.

    The proposed Crossrail 2 route would be tunnelled from New Southgate and Tottenham Hale in the north, to Wimbledon in the south, providing an interchange with other London Underground, Overground and rail services.

    TfL has said it's necessary to ease the surge expected in crowding on public transport, and will unlock the construction of 200,000 homes, as well as 200,000 extra jobs in the region due to the increase in transport capacity.

  • 07/14/17--03:02: Mr Jukes - God First
  • Mr Jukes - God First An impressively soulful venture from Jack Steadman...

    *Mr Jukes*, the new moniker adopted by Bombay Bicycle Club’s bespectacled frontman Jack Steadman, is emphatically not a solo project. Built largely on samples and bursting at the seams with high profile guest spots (BJ the Chicago Kid, Lianna La Havas and Lalah 'Daughter of Donny’ Hathaway all crop up), the ethos behind his new bedroom project is every bit as (if not more) collaborative as that of his old band.

    By 'bedroom project' we in fact mean 'cabin project'. The bones of what would become 'God First' (a name chosen to convey something about the spiritual aspect of inspiration and not the most conceptually tight thing about the record to be honest) were recorded on Steadman’s journey by boat from Shanghai to Canada. The only passenger on a commercial vessel, he would tape his keyboards down to combat the rolling of the ocean and then divide his time between exploring new beats and recording love songs for the crew’s wives.

    This nautical environment cuts through most clearly on opening track ‘Typhoon’. Musically it maps out the fluidity of his musicianship by harking back to everything great on the mid-era Ninja Tune roster: smooth Cinematic Orchestra strings are introduced to arresting Cut Copy beats, giving an impression that will remain throughout the album that Steadman is cannily remixing his own music without bothering to pause and release the original version. But it’s the unusual use of traditional seafaring lyrics about fateful tides, blowing winds and waiting girls that convey a real sense of seaswept yearning, Steadman’s words sounding ever more sea shanty-ish as more and more voices from the St Aloysius' College Choir take up his steady chant.

    From this point on his voice largely remains lost in the mix, submerged under choir-style group choruses and some impressively heavyweight guest spots, and re-emerging occasionally to steer the helm on tracks like 'Ruby' and 'Magic'. Sadly these tracks can't avoid sounding like experimental offcuts from final BBC album 'So Long, See You Tomorrow', as his distractingly accented vocals tend to inadvertently dominate proceedings (I'm sure I'm not the only one who assumed Bombay Bicycle Club were an Indian band when they first heard 'The Boy I Used To Be', not just because of the name either).

    It’s when Steadman truly inhabits his Mr Jukes persona and hides behind his collection of keyboards, drum machines and sample pads, letting someone else take centre-stage, that ‘God First’ really finds its feet. Elli Ingram and Lianne La Havas pour vocal caramel over both ‘Somebody New’ and ‘When Your Light Goes Out’ respectively, while De La Soul rock up on ‘Leap Of Faith’ to shore up their reputations as the kings of collaboration (and launch a fleet of well-merited Gorillaz comparisons across the internet in the process). The pairing of tracks and performers is flawless throughout, with BJ the Chicago Kid lending his effortless cool to the equally laissez-faire ‘Angels/Your Love’ and Lalah Hathaway adding some gospel heft to ‘From Golden Stars Comes Silver Dew’.

    Steadman’s deep knowledge of musical history also makes 'God First' manna from heaven for geeky crate diggers. Album highlight 'Grant Green' perfectly demonstrates the numerous levels at which his brain seems to be capable of operating at any one time. The song features the indomitable Charles Bradley, who famously spent much of his career as a James Brown impersonator, and whose vocals kick in after a horn introduction that is heavily reminiscent of Brown's 'It's A Man's, Man's, Man's World', a song that was sampled by the Wu-Tang Clan for their single 'Gravel Pit', which also sampled 'Ain't It Funky Now' by, wait for it... Grant Green.

    Both immediately hook-filled and intellectually deep at the same time, ‘God First’ has already earned its place as one of the most exciting and unexpected releases of 2017. In recasting himself as the enigmatic Mr Jukes, Steadman has tapped into a well of inspiration that almost completely bypasses his own history as a guitar-toting indie icon, feeding instead off a far wider history of dance, soul and funk. What could have been a vanity project instead sacrifices its creator's ego at the altar of musical collaboration, pushing the limits of what constitutes both a 'bedroom project' and an ‘ensemble piece’.
