Sunday’s World Cup match against arch-rivals India is a gilt-edged opportunity for every Pakistani player to etch his name into cricketing folklore, coach Mickey Arthur said.The soldout clash will be Pakistan’s seventh attempt to beat India in a 50-over World Cup match and South African Arthur has reminded them the bigger rewards that await them if they can break the jinx.As bilateral cricket remains suspended because of political tensions, the neighbours meet each other only in ICC events with emotions running high in both countries.”It doesn’t get more exciting,” Arthur said of the hotly-anticipated contest at Old Trafford.”I’m telling our players in the dressing room, ‘you could be a hero tomorrow. Your careers are going to be defined by a moment in the game. You do something incredible tomorrow, you’ll be remembered forever.”Our mantra is ‘how do you want to be remembered?’ We’ve got 15 incredible cricketers in that dressing room, and we keep stressing to them ‘how do you want to be remembered? You’re the class of 2019. What are they going to say about you in history?'”And tomorrow presents an unbelievable opportunity for these guys to really make a mark.”Arthur’s approach was in contrast to that of India captain Kohli, who sought to play down the hype around the match.Inconsistency has again plagued Pakistan’s campaign with Sarfaraz Ahmed’s men shocking hosts England but going down to West Indies and Australia.The “perfect match” that Arthur demands from his team has not materialised but their victory over India in the final of the 2017 Champions Trophy at the Oval could be an inspiration for Pakistan.advertisement”That’s a long time ago. We’re concentrating at the moment on our own games because we know, if we put three disciplines together, we can beat anybody in the world,” Arthur said.”We haven’t put the perfect game together yet. Our disciplines have been good with the bat, have been okay with the ball and okay in the field. If we put the perfect game together, we can beat everybody.”Arthur took charge of a mercurial Pakistan side in 2016 following his stints with South Africa and Australia.Since then, the 51-year-old said, he has tried to bring in more consistency but was not too unhappy with the side being branded “unpredictable”.”I like to think we’ve become a lot more structured as a team. I think there’s been a lot more role clarity given to players…”I certainly think our gap between being very, very good and very bad is a lot closer, and I do think that we’re playing a game now that is a little bit more consistent.”But that unpredictability tag always sort of hangs around the Pakistan team, and that makes us very exciting.”Also Read | Virat Kohli’s message for fans ahead of India vs Pakistan: It is a cricket match, enjoy itAlso Read | India vs Pakistan: Mohammed Shami likely to replace Kuldeep Yadav in crucial World Cup matchAlso See:
Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James took issue Monday with New York Knicks President Phil Jackson’s use of the term “posse,” leading to a lively discussion on Twitter.James’ issue stems from a statement Jackson made to ESPN Nov. 14, when he referred to the NBA player’s business partners and friends as a “posse.”“When LeBron was playing with the [Miami] Heat, they went to Cleveland and he wanted to spend the night,” Jackson told ESPN. “They don’t do overnights. Teams just don’t. So now [Heat coach Erik] Spoelstra has to text [Heat president Pat] Riley and say, ‘What do I do in this situation?’ And Pat, who has iron-fist rules, answers, ‘You are on the plane. You are with this team.’ You can’t hold up the whole team because you and your mom and your posse want to spend an extra night in Cleveland.“I always thought Pat had this really nice vibe with his guys,” Jackson continued. “But something happened there where it broke down. I do know LeBron likes special treatment. He needs things his way.”When asked for his response, James told ESPN he had “no relationship at all” to the former Chicago Bulls coach.“I had nothing but respect for him as a coach for what he was able to do,” he noted.But what Twitter latched onto was James’ issue with the word “posse.”“To use that label – and if you read the definition of what the word ‘posse’ is – it’s not what I’ve built over my career. It’s not what I stand for,” the athlete said. “It’s not what my family stands for. And I believe the only reason he used that word is because he sees a young African-American trying to make a difference.”In response, D.J. Andrews called for Jackson to lose his position.Somebody gotta hack Phil Jackson email and get him outta here too— D.J. Andrews (@DJDarrel3) November 15, 2016@KobeTruthNlight agreed with James but told him to respect the coach who led the Lakers for more than a decade.Ok Lebron I agree with you about Phil Jackson , but you better respect the greatest coach ever!— Jesus (@KobeTruthNlight) November 15, 2016Jammy Jam also sided with James. He referenced Jackson’s history of speaking on issues he was not originally involved in. The retired coach previously put his two cents’ worth in on a 2012 feud between former Lakers players Dwight Howard and Shaquille O’Neal.Idc I’m team Bron Bron, I don’t like Phil Jackson anyway. He be talking shit and acting up but supposed to be all about zen lol— Jammy Jam (@OfficialJammy) November 15, 2016But some users defended Jackson. They backed away from James’ longtime business associate Maverick Carter’s assertion that Jackson was disrespectful.All the hard work,effort and achievement and @PhilJackson11 still calls us a “posse”every step you take they remind you, you ghetto” @S_C_ pic.twitter.com/OPsPvAvFoM— Maverick Carter (@mavcarter) November 14, 2016But Fire Rich Cho checked Carter on the word’s definition.@mavcarter @PhilJackson11 @S_C_ lemme finish it for you. Look at the final definition and stop being so sensitive. pic.twitter.com/4KB4siTRmU— Fire Rich Cho (@FireRichCho) November 15, 2016Carter later clarified his stance, noting he didn’t call Jackson racist.Let me be clear I’m not saying @PhilJackson11 is racist,, I’m calling out his disrespectful language— Maverick Carter (@mavcarter) November 15, 2016Meanwhile, Marquisha Jeng explained the origins of the word “posse” before deciding Jackson “meant no harm.”’Posse’ is derived from the word ‘posse comitatus’, which is a legal term defining power or authority. Phil Jackson meant no harm…— Marquisha Jeng (@_melaninhippie_) November 15, 2016Truth Seeker questioned why James felt disrespected by Jackson while he “went back to slave master Dan Gilbert.” The statement refers to Gilbert’s open letter in which he blasted James for leaving the Heat in 2010. During the ensuing fallout, Rev. Jesse Jackson told the Associated Press Gilbert saw James as an enslaved African who escaped from his slavemaster.“His feelings of betrayal personify a slave master mentality,” Jackson said. “He sees LeBron as a runaway slave. This is an owner/employee relationship – between business partners – and LeBron honored his contract.”I mean I’m black power and everything, but for LeBron to say Phil Jackson disrespected him and he went back to slave master Dan Gilbert. Smh— Truth Seeker (@xfilestrustno1) November 15, 2016Additionally, Checo said he didn’t believe the Knicks’ president was racist.I don’t think Phil Jackson ment for his statement to come off as racist. If he was then he made the WORST career choice. #LeBronJames #NBA— Checo (@ChecoRepublic) November 15, 2016

In picture: Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets Prime Minister Narendra Modi. [File Photo]Press Information BureauIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to come to India on an official visit within two weeks. Netanyahu will visit India for a day just a week before Israel goes to repeat polls after he failed to form a government following the April 9 elections.The Israeli PM will meet his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi where the two leaders are expected to discuss issues including the acquisition of two more Airborne Warning and Control Systems (AWACS), extended range air to air Derby missiles by the Indian Air Force and joint projects in agriculture, water, and waste management.Apart from Military discussions, Netanyahu is expected to extend his support to the Indian government’s abrogation of articles 370 and 35A in Kashmir, as an internal matter and support the bilateral resolution of issues between India and Pakistan. Citing Top diplomats, Hindustan Times reported that before his arrival an advanced security liaison team from Israel will come to Delhi on September 2 to prepare grounds. However, the date of Netanyahu’s arrival is yet to be finalised but he is expected to come either on September 7 or 8.Political pundits have argued saying that Netanyahu’s meeting with PM Modi is more symbolic in nature to enhance his image before the general election. Earlier this year in July, Netanyahu became the longest-serving Israeli prime minister, surpassing Israel’s first premier David Ben-Gurion. Notably, his ruling Lukid party is facing a tough challenge with flagging fortunes. Personally, also the Israeli PM is fighting for personal survival ahead of a hearing before the state prosecution on several graft cases. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gestures as he speaks during an event marking “The Appreciation for the Fallen of Israel’s Wars and Victims of Terrorism Day” at the Knesset, Israeli parliament, in JerusalemREUTERS/Ammar AwadIndian is planning to buy $2 billion worth two PHALCON AWACS mounted on Russian A-50 platform for better surveillance in the air. The order is yet to be approved from the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS). India has five AWACS platforms in comparison to Pakistan, which already has seven in its armada. Moreover, Pakistan has ordered three more from China. Pakistan is already operating three SAAB Erieye and four ZDK-03 from China, which were airborne 24X7 after the Balakot airstrike by the Indian Air Force on JeM camps. On the other hand, IAF deployed AWACS for only 12 hours period.Apart from acquiring two AWACS, India also plans to buy extended range Derby air-to-air missiles from Israel. IAF wants to further upgrade Su-30 MKI with integrating the 70-kilometre range Derby missiles on its platform with the latest radar equipped with a data link to engage with Pakistani F-16s in future.
