Looking back to the 2015 World Cup, England probably played the game in a little bit of an old-fashioned way, and [my role] was about bringing in players that were more attuned to playing the more modern style of game.”But it was about attitude as well, about the knowledge that whoever won that World Cup was going to have to play some bold cricket, and we stuck to our guns through those four years, and through some tough periods as well.”That allowed us to have some tough conversations with the boys, but they stuck to what they believed in and in the way they played, even though over a period of time they learned how to adapt to situations.”advertisementEngland Cricket’s official Twitter handle shared the pictures and captioned the post as “Thank you, Trevor! Emotional goodbye for our coach in the dressing room after his final match in charge”.Thank you Trevor!

A spokesman for Mr. Annan issued a statement calling the action a violation of international humanitarian law and saying it directly contravenes commitments made by the Government. Mr. Annan strongly urged the Government to immediately halt all relocation operations and to facilitate the return of the affected people from the “inappropriate sites” to which they have been taken. “This should be done in accordance with the principles noted above and in consultation with the international agencies present on the ground in Darfur,” he said.The Secretary-General voiced concern about the overall deterioration of the situation in Darfur, where 18 people were recently kidnapped by the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA) while and thousands of Arab militias mobilized in areas of West and South Darfur.“The SLA and the militias risk sparking a new round of violence that could claim the lives of thousands of civilians,” he warned.Mr. Annan urged the parties to the conflict to fully respect the N’Djamena ceasefire, the SLA to release the hostages, and the militias to stand down.He also reminded the Government of Sudan that under international humanitarian law it must prevent any attacks against civilians. read more
