Yorkshire batsman Nicholas Pooran given ball-tampering ban
Yorkshire and West Indies batsman Nicholas Pooran has been
banned from his country's next four Twenty20 internationals after he admitted
to tampering with the ball.
Pooran, 24, played for Yorkshire in this year's T20 Blast and
will return to Headingley as an overseas player next summer.
He was caught on camera using his thumb to scrape the ball and
seam during the third and final match of the Windies one-day series win over
"Pooran was charged with violating Article 2.14 of the code,
which relates to 'changing the condition of the ball'," a statement from
the International Cricket Council, cricket's world governing body, read.
"He will now miss the next four T20I games for the West
Indies and will have five demerit points added to his record."
Man convicted of street murder
A man has been convicted of murdering a 32-year-old man on a Middlesbrough street
John Lewis was stabbed through the heart on Crescent Road in May.
Jonathan Porritt denied murder but was convicted following a trial at Teesside Crown Court.
The judge remanded the 28-year-old, of Crescent Road, in custody and warned him he faced a life term when he is sentenced on Friday.
Porritt was also convicted of possessing a bladed weapon in a public place.
National park board member Jim Munday said: “The reason for the shortage of new and affordable housing in the Yorkshire Dales National Park lies with the slow rate of building in the park and not with any lack of planning permissions."
There is not enough investment in the sort of small-scale, affordable housing schemes that we need, in part because it’s cheaper to build on large sites outside the National Park in places like Colburn and Catterick."
A report into its finances showed the tourist agency would've run out of money by this month had local authorities not agreed to inject £1m.
Mr Box has now confirmed Welcome to Yorkshire will sit out next year's Chelsea Flower Show before "reassessing" its position for 2021.
I think the debate has been that it puts Yorkshire on the map, but what's it done for Yorkshire's economy? It's really important that everything's cost- effective, so I think the funding saved can best be used for a range of community events."
