Coach Ravi Shastri vowed on Sunday that India will "take no prisoners" in their quest to win a Test series in Australia for the first time, but cautioned against underestimating a struggling home team. "I think once you have a sporting culture you will always have that and I always believe no team is weak at home," Shastri said, as he began reparations for the first of three T20 internationals at The Gabba in Brisbane. "We might have three or four players not playing when a team comes to India, but God forbid anyone (who) says it's a weak Indian team because you'll be surprised. So similarly, we are taking no prisoners we want to go out and put our best foot forward and focus on our game rather than what's happening outside." Shastri played down Australia's newfound 'good-guy' attitude on and off the field and simply expects them to play well. "At the end of the day it's the cricket that talks," he said. "When you're good at what you do and if you can do it consistently it doesn't matter which side you're playing for that cricketer will do well and so will the team." Virat Kohli has been public enemy number one with the Australian fans in the past, but Shastri has seen him mature and now as captain believes he will flourish in Australian conditions. "He loves coming to Australia, he's passionate about his game," Shastri said. "The pitches here suit his style of play and once you've done well in this part of the world you always want to come out and play well again because I think it's a great place to play cricket, they play it hard. The sporting public really appreciate good, tough cricket. It doesn't matter which side wins or loses as long as there is competition as long as I've come to Australia I know the people love it." Shastri did not believe the hosts' new, polite approach would affect his skipper. "He's a professional, he's matured, you saw him four years ago. He's played all around the globe since then and captained the side and that alone comes with a...
A judge on Monday told lawyers representing the warring sides in the Florida recount that they need to "ramp down the rhetoric" alleging illegal activity surrounding the process because it's eroding the public's confidence in the election, when no evidence of fraud has been presented. The order by the judge to the lawyers in the case happened during an emergency hearing in Broward County on a motion by lawyers for Rick Scott's Senate campaign asking law enforcement to impound Broward County's voting machines and ballots when they're not being used during the Florida recount. The recount is already secured by police outside and deputies inside, with both parties and campaigns monitoring the entire process. But Scott's campaign insists Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes has a history of violating state law during vote-counting. "This is about protecting the vote," said Jason Zimmerman, an attorney for Rick Scott's Senate campaign. "It's the integrity of the election system that's at stake here. There are allegations and evidence submitted in our verified complaint in our motion to this court that the supervisor of election in Broward County has engaged, not just in this election but in prior elections, of election issues, irregularities. And in fact illegal conduct," he continued. A lawyer for Snipes said Scott's campaign is attempting to use the court to imply the likelihood of wrongdoing in case Governor Scott doesn't win the Florida Senate race. "You want to talk about what undermines our electoral process? That type of behavior, that type of suggestion without any evidence," said Eugene Pettis, the lawyer for Brenda Snipes, Broward's supervisor of elections. Circuit Chief Judge Jack Tuter said he's seen no evidence of wrongdoing in the Broward County vote-counting but suggested to add another layer of confidence, the sides agree to add three additional sheriff's deputies to monitor the machines and ballots. He also urged lawyers on all sides to "ramp down the r...
