first_img india today digital LondonJuly 13, 2019UPDATED: July 14, 2019 18:02 IST Eoin Morgan will be leading England in a historic World Cup final on July 14 (Reuters)HIGHLIGHTSEoin Morgan said England are focussed on not getting ahead of themselvesI certainly feel pretty relaxed. I am also very excited about tomorrow: MorganEngland take on New Zealand in the World Cup final on Sunday at Lord’sEngland captain Eoin Morgan said being in the World Cup 2019 final means a lot to him and his teammates but they are not putting pressure on themselves by thinking about the outcome.England have reached their 4th World Cup final and their first since 1992 but the founders of cricket are yet to win a men’s title in the 50-over format. Morgan and his men have a good chance, considering they will be heading into Sunday’s final at Lord’s against New Zealand as favourites.England have a negative head-to-head record of 3-5 against New Zealand but their 119-run thrashing of the Black Caps in the group-stages should give them a lot of confidence. It’s not going to be easy though as both teams will be bidding for their first World Cup title.”I haven’t allowed myself to think about lifting the trophy. Sport, in particular, is very fickle. If you ever get ahead of yourself, it bites you on the backside,” Eoin Morgan told reports in London on the eve of World Cup 2019 final.”It means a huge amount to me and everyone in the dressing room. It’s a combination of four years of hard work, dedication and it presents a huge opportunity to win the World Cup. We have had huge backing throughout the tournament,” Morgan added.”I certainly feel pretty relaxed. I am also very excited about tomorrow. We are going to enjoy the game regardless of the occasion. You never know what you are going to say to the team before the morning of the game. Everybody is fit in our squad. So it’s good news.”advertisementMorgan doesn’t predict a high-scoring final at Lord’sEngland have out-batted oppositions with their firepower in World Cup 2019. The likes of Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and captain Morgan himself have decimated opposition bowling attacks but the skipper doesn’t predict a high-scoring contest, considering the nature of the wicket at Lord’s.New Zealand qualified for the final after surviving in a low-scoring thriller against pre-tournament favourites India. After posting 239 in a rain-affected semi-final in Manchester, Matt Henry and Trent Boult blew away the Indian top-order and helped fend away a lower middle-order threat to book a place in Sunday’s final.”It isn’t ever a high-scoring ground – so I’d say tomorrow isn’t going to be a high-scoring game. I think it will be a bit of a battle.””In general, the scores have been a lot lower than they have been in the last two or three years. Adjusting to that has been hard work but New Zealand have handled that brilliantly.”Also Read | Come on England: 101 former cricketers wish their team good luck ahead of World Cup 2019 finalAlso Read | Always feared England would produce their best on the biggest stage: Allan BorderFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Mise à jour sur le virus H1N1 grippe porcine chez lêtre humain

first_imgAucun nouveau cas du virus H1N1 (grippe porcine chez l’être humain) n’a été confirmé dans la province aujourd’hui 7 mai. Le Dr Robert Strang, médecin-hygiéniste en chef de la Nouvelle-Écosse, précise toutefois que cela ne signifie pas que l’épidémie est terminée ou contrôlée. « Comme nous le disons depuis le tout début, nous nous attendons toujours à un plus grand nombre de cas dans un plus grand nombre d’endroits, » a dit le Dr Strang. « Le système de la santé publique demeure vigilant et continue de surveiller la situation à l’échelle de la province. » Les mesures de prévention constituent la meilleure façon de rester en bonne santé. Il faut donc se laver les mains souvent, se couvrir la bouche avec la manche pour tousser ou éternuer, rester à l’écart des endroits publics en cas de maladie et désinfecter souvent les surfaces et articles couramment utilisés tels que les poignées de porte et les comptoirs. Il est important que les Néo-Écossais comprennent qu’il est sécuritaire de se rendre au travail et à l’école, de participer aux activités scolaires et de faire des sorties sociales s’ils ne présentent pas de symptômes de la grippe. Le nombre total de cas signalés en Nouvelle-Écosse depuis le début de l’épidémie, le 26 avril, est toujours de 53. Tous les cas sont bénins et les personnes atteintes se sont rétablies ou sont en cours de rétablissement. Une ligne d’information sans frais est en opération de 8 h 30 à 20 h 30 chaque jour. Le numéro de la ligne sans frais est le 1-888-451-4222. Pour obtenir plus d’information sur le virus H1N1 (grippe porcine chez l’être humain), consultez le www.gov.ns.ca .last_img read more
