Paine’s DRS judgements are going wrong so often that Australian great Ian Healy felt the visitors are almost better off without reviews.After wasting an all-important review during the Leeds Test that came back to haunt Australia later, Tim Paine once again proved that there is no end to his DRS woes. On Day 3 of the ongoing fifth Test at The Oval, the Australian skipper decided to not review on two occasions against Joe Denly and Jos Buttler.The ball-tracking replays later showed had Paine sent the LBW shouts from Mitch Marsh and Nathan Lyon upstairs, the decisions would have turned in Australia’s favour.Joe Denly, who was given a lifeline by Paine on 54, went on to score 94 while Buttler added quick 47 to push England lead towards 400.Speaking at a press conference after the day’s play, Tim Paine accepted that he needs to take some lessons on better use of DRS.Taking a dig at Paine, former Indian cricketer-turned commentator Aakash Chopra asked the Australian skipper to give a call to former Indian captain MS Dhoni and ask if he is enrolling students in his class. Dhoni is arguably the best when it comes to taking a DRS call.Give a call to Dhoni.

We’re having a mare (nightmare). We’ve got it wrong.”It happens, it’s fast, it’s a tough job. As I’ve said throughout the whole Test series, I’ve got a new respect for umpiring, particularly in Test cricket.”For years players whinged about umpiring, and now we’ve got it in our hands a little bit and we’re finding that it’s hard.”Also Read | Steve Smith wishes wife Dani Willis on 1st wedding anniversaryAlso see:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

first_imgHEALTH MINISTER DR James Reilly is to face nurses and midwives at the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation conference today – a day after union members were told to ‘stand up’ to government and employers.The INMO will present the minister with the findings of their trolley and ward watch surveys, which note the amount of people on trolleys and in wards in Irish hospitals.The figures, which were released yesterday, show an increase since 2007 in the amount of people on trolleys and wards.At yesterday’s conference, the president of the INMO, Claire Mahon, said that it has been “an uphill battle” for the union’s members during the last few months, but it is one she will continue to fight.She said that the union members “cannot solve our overcrowding problem without additional beds, without nursing/midwifery staff and without additional community support services.  To think otherwise is simply to ignore the reality and to compromise the care of patients”.Stand upMahon said that she was addressing the members before Minister Reilly “as I believe that I should address you, not a Minister who has shown little or no regard for our professions”.She also commented on patient safety in Irish hospitals, saying: We did not party.  We did not cause the country to go bankrupt. However we are certainly paying the price.If the government introduces pay cuts, Mahon said that she will actively participate in a campaign of opposition, and if necessary, industrial action. The union is willing to re-engage in talks, and willing to make payroll savings, she added.INMO members voted yesterday to undertake a nationwide ballot seeking a mandate for industrial action if the government introduces cuts.The three-day conference will come to a close in Letterkenny, Co Donegal, today.Read: INMO to debate emergency motion on industrial action>Read: INMO prepared to mobilise against pay cuts> The main focus in Irish Health care has not been on patient safety, it has been on budget constraints and cost savings. We know that when the emphasis is placed on savings rather than at the frontline we see staffing shortages, equipment shortages and short cuts being taken. These kinds of cut backs can have a detrimental effect on patient health, progress and chances of survival.Mahon described the situation in Irish healthcare as “critical and unacceptable”, and called on registered midwives and nurses to “stand up” and make employers and government act.She also spoke about the extension of the Croke Park agreement, describing the proposals as “deeply divisive and discriminating”. The INMO delegation left the talks and Mahon said she is “proud” that this occurred.According to Mahon:INMO members are living, from month to month, many of them not able to pay all of their bills, many of them increasingly in mortgage arrears and all of them simply trying to provide for themselves, their families, their children and their loved ones.last_img read more
