Powered by Firework The New Zealand tour has turned sour for Team India. Along with it, the captain Virat Kohli is struggling to find his usual finesse, and the lacklustre batting from the ODI series is has carried over into the Test. Although known for one of the present pioneer batsmen of Test cricket, Kohli failed to make a mark in the first Test, scoring only 21 across both innings of the first Test against New Zealand. As a result, the ICC no.1 Test batsman has lost his top spot, dropping to second position.Advertisement Image Courtesy: AFPThanks to marvellous performance in the South Africa and Bangladesh test series last year, Virat Kohli soared to the top spot in the batting ranking list last December, toppling Steve Smith with 928 ratings. Now, the Aussie superstar with 911 ratings has gone back to top of the ranking list, as Kohli’s ratings are down to 906.Australia’s last Test was against New Zealand, where Smith scored a marvellous 214 in the first test, including two half centuries. This is the eighth time Smith has regained his no. 1 rank in the last five years.Advertisement The Indian batting squad failed massively to rack up a good total against the Kiwis in the test, and Kohli himself, managed to put up a score of 2 and 19 in both innings respectively. With scoring totals of just 165 and 191, the hosts snatched away an easy 10 wicket victory in the second innings, chucking India into their heaviest Test defeat under the captaincy of Kohli at the Basin Reserve cricket ground in Wellington.Following Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara has also lost two spots, and is down at 9th rank. The specialist Test batsman scored a total of 22 runs in the first Test.Advertisement However on the other hand, Mayank Agarwal has joined the top ten list, soaring up to no. 10 in the ranking, which is his career highest. The 29 year old put up an appreciable total of 92 across the two innings, along with a half century in the second one. With a rating of 727, Agarwal is one rank below Pujara.Ajinkya Rahane gone up to his previous rank at the no. 8 position. The 31 year old veteran middle order batsman scored 75 in the match.The second Test is to happen at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch this Saturday.Also read-World Cup winning Indian captain slams Virat Kohli for team selection in NZFormer Kiwi Craig McMillan reveals exactly why India got crushed by NZ in the first test Advertisementlast_img read more

Home Improvement Show To Feature 150 Exhibitors

first_imgBy Mary Ann BourbeauLINCROFT – Area residents can get their home and garden projects off the ground next week when the Jersey Shore Home Show springs into town.The show is a great place to meet area home professionals and gather ideas for future projects. The three-day event will take place Feb. 26-28 at Collins Arena at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft. Homeowners will have the opportunity to meet more than 150 home improvement specialists all under one roof. Builders, contractors, decorators and landscapers will be on hand to talk about their services. Visitors can find valuable information and ideas about kitchen and bath remodeling, flooring, patios, roofing and siding, and many other products and services.“I think for people who are looking to remodel their home, it’s a good place to find answers,” said Stephanie Kucharski, associate producer of expos for Townsquare Media Group, the company running the event. “You could do online research, but it’s nice to meet people face to face. You might also find things you didn’t think you needed for your house. It’s nice to have it all under one roof.”Some area exhibitors include Decorator’s Choice Closets of Shrewsbury, Majestic Exteriors of Colts Neck, Just Landscapes of Freehold, Superior Siding and Roofing of Ocean, Design Line Kitchens of Sea Girt and NJR Clean Energy Ventures of Wall.There will also be vendors offering information on basement waterproofing and remodeling, sunrooms, modular homes, tile, gutters, water conditioning, windows, awnings, home security, fencing and decks, solar panels, roofing and pools. Financial companies will also be on hand to help homeowners find a way to pay for it all.“It’s a pretty wide mix of companies,” said Kucharski.This year’s special guest will be Stephen Fanuka, host of the HGTV show “Million Dollar Contractor.” Fanuka, who has worked with some of the world’s top architects and designers, will host 45-minute workshops along with a meet and greet at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday, and 1 p.m. Sunday.Tom Paolino, owner of Millennium Stone Works of Colts Neck, will be among the exhibitors Paolino, a third-generation mason, has been in the business for 22 years and has taken part in the Jersey Shore Home Show for nine years.“It’s a great way to introduce yourself to people,” he said.Millennium offers landscape design services that can include multilevel patios, fireplaces, firepits, waterfalls, outdoor kitchens, pizza ovens and outdoor entertainment systems.“I love to create,” Paolino said. “It gives me a lot of pleasure.”Tom Klahre of Shrewsbury-based Decorator’s Choice Closets will be on hand to talk about the latest trends, such as building drawers inside the closet so the homeowners don’t need a dresser.“A lot of people want a jewelry safe in their bedroom closet,” he said. “We have one that is tied into the studs and you open it with a fingerprint. Some people want one under the bed so they can reach their pistol in about five seconds. It’s pretty cool.”Klahre said customers these days are looking for garage cabinetry, rich-looking closet doors, or a small desk inside a pantry that can be used for paying household bills or wrapping gifts. He even built a three-level clothing rack in a closet with high ceilings, where the racks are spring-loaded and can be pulled down for use.“We design a 3-D picture on the computer with the exact dimensions of the project so people can see exactly what they’re getting” Klahre said. “Whatever the customer wants is what they get.”Klahre said appearing at the Jersey Shore Home Show has been beneficial to his business in the past, but he is glad that the scheduling for this year’s show was better than last year.“Last year, they had it during the football playoff game,” he said. “Thank God they didn’t do that again.”The Jersey Shore Home Show will take place 1 to 8 p.m. Friday; 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $8 for adults; children 17 and under are free. Seniors age 65 and up pay $6 on Friday only.
