NEW DELHI: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has charged 2 Indian and 3 Bangladeshi players after an ugly fight between Indian and Bangladeshi players followed Bangladesh’s post-match win at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom on Sunday.Three Bangladeshi players; Md Towhid Hridoy, Shamim Hossain and Rakibul Hasan and two Indian players; Akash Singh and Ravi Bishnoi were charged with violating Article 2.21 of the code, whilst Bishnoi received a further charge of breaching Article 2.5. All five players have accepted the sanctions proposed by ICC U19 Cricket World Cup Match Referee Graeme Labrooy, according to a statement from ICC.The players were charged with demerit points based on their violations. The points will remain on their records for two years.Geoff Allardice, ICC General Manager Cricket said in a statement, “The match was hard fought, as you would expect in an ICC U19 Cricket World Cup Final, but the elation and disappointment experienced by some players after the game spilled over into unedifying scenes that have no place in our sport. Respect is at the very heart of the spirit of cricket, and players are expected to show self-discipline, congratulate the opposition on their successes and enjoy the success of their own team.“It is disappointing that Code of Conduct charges needed to be laid after such a closely contested match, but it is important to reinforce the standard of behavior that will be expected of these young players should they transition to senior international cricket.”According to reports, an Indian player reacted after Bangladeshi players used some foul language against them.The altercation turned into an ugly fight, and the umpires and support staff had to intervene to resolve the situation.“We were easy. We think it’s part and parcel of the game – you win some and you lose some. But their reaction was dirty. I think it shouldn’t have happened. But it’s okay,” India U19 captain Priyam Garg said, according to ESPN Cricinfo. India’s team was bowled out for 177. This is Bangladesh’s maiden World Cup win.Also Read: U-19 World Cup: Fancied India face Pakistan challenge in semisAlso Watch: Kokrajhar District BJP workers carried out cleanliness drive

That doesn’t mean they won’t wonder what could have been had they played better in the snow Saturday against the Badgers. No. 12 Wisconsin grounded No. 8 Minnesota’s best season of the modern era Saturday with a 38-17 thumping that will send the Badgers to the Big Ten title game against Ohio State.The Golden Gophers entered play with one loss. They exited knowing they had squandered their slight chance at reaching the College Football Playoff. Proud Wisconsin alums did not miss the opportunity to go after Minnesota on social media. NFL star J.J. Watt and recent NBA forward Sam Dekker led the charge against the Golden Gophers, calling out coach P.J.

Among the many hazards of living abroad is the constant feeling that you are out of touch with what is going on back home.When I lived in the United States, I was a bit of a super nerd. I regularly attended midnight movie premieres, I knew all of the obscure pop culture trivia, and I could hold my own around any water cooler. But now, when I go back to the U.S., I find myself lost in the conversations of my formerly uncool friends. I don’t know what’s on TV, or what music people are listening to, or which young adult book series is being turned into a blockbuster film. A big reason for this is the way movies are translated into Spanish.Most titles, understandably, are not translated literally. “The Rum Diary” in English became “The Diary of a Seducer” in Spanish, and “Despicable Me” was translated to “My Favorite Villain.” While this makes sense for the general Spanish-speaking public, it is confusing for a Gringa waiting to see the movie her friends won’t stop writing about on Facebook.So, it comes as no surprise that when a friend mentioned to me that “Sinsajo” was coming to theaters Thursday, I had no idea what he was talking about. I nodded and feigned excitement, while making a mental note to Google Translate it later. It turns out that Google Translate is much more in tune with pop culture than I am, because it correctly translated the made-up Spanish word, Sinsajo, to its made-up English equivalent, Mockingjay, also the titles of the third and fourth installments of “The Hunger Games” (Part I, released last year, and Part II, coming out in Costa Rica tomorrow).At least Hollywood has the decency to literally translate made-up words. For those not obsessed with the mega-popular “Hunger Games” movie series or the book trilogy it’s based on, the mockingjay is a fictional bird in the series, an accidental cross-breed of the repressive government’s genetically engineered “jabberjays” and common mockingbirds. Instead of inventing some nonsensical Spanish word for the title, the translator simply took the Spanish word for mockingbird, sinsonte, and jay, arrendajo.Why can’t all movies do that?Costa Rican “Hunger Games” fans can enjoy not only the perfectly translated title, but also the advantage of catching the movie an entire day before anyone in the United States. For those hoping to see the movie as soon as possible, below are the schedules for theaters featuring the movie on its opening day.CCM Cinemas San PedroSan CarlosLincoln PlazaCinemark*Note some options are dubbedMultiplaza EscazúMultiplaza CurridabatCinépolis*Note some options are dubbedDesamparadosCartagoTres RíosHerediaNovaAvenida EscazúAmanda Zúñiga contributed to this report.
