Anything related to the 1983 World Cup officially will have to come from them.”THE KAPIL SHARMA SHOW shoot was originally scheduled for Saturday night. It was advanced by a day for Friday, as some of the players have contractual obligations with news channels to appear on the preview shows and for the India-Australia One Day International on Sunday morning.India is hosting Australia for a five-match ODI series and two T20 Internationals. The first match is scheduled for Sunday at Visakhapatnam.The two players, however, declined to comment on the reported unhappiness on the “remuneration from granting the rights of their story from the 1983 movie. “Only Kapil and Gavaskar should speak on this,” said one player. “There is no written or exclusive mandate to both of them. But in a team, mutual understandings are bigger than anything.”National daily Times of India had reported that the players were “not happy with a collective contract of ₹ 1.5 crores for 10 of them”. While Kapil reportedly has a separate contract, Gavaskar has not signed on the dotted lines, the paper has reported.However, insidesport.co has learned that the players stand to gain more than the committed ₹ 1.5 crores if the film does well commercially. “This too will be discussed today,” a player said. “The contract has various clauses. But we are not supposed to speak on that. Only Kapil and the film producers are the authorised spokespersons for everything related to the movie.”Meanwhile, the players are happy with the timing of the hype around the film. “This has yet again put us in the limelight. There are individual offers with the most of us. But we have decided to play as a team. We will discuss further tonight and hope we all will stick to the decision.”The cricketing part of the film will be shot in London at the Lord’s and the Oval.

Photo: St. Barnabas, via Facebook[Episcopal News Service] The Diocese of Springfield’s Standing Committee is in mediation with Bishop Daniel Martins to settle a disagreement over the bishop’s retirement, with Martins planning to retire in June 2021 and the Standing Committee insisting he step down sooner.In documents obtained by Episcopal News Service, the Standing Committee has informed Martins it is unhappy with its previously approved arrangement allowing the bishop to reside in Chicago and commute to the diocese, which encompasses the largely rural southern half of Illinois.“Your continued residence in Chicago presents an untenable situation best addressed by advancing your previously announced retirement date,” the Standing Committee said in a May 8 letter to Martins, threatening to revoke the permission it granted him to live outside the diocese.Springfield Bishop Daniel Martins was consecrated in 2011. Photo: Diocese of SpringfieldThe Standing Committee also referenced an April 15 letter to Martins, in which it urged Martins to move his retirement date up by eight months, to October 2020. “This will give you the opportunity to preside at the annual synod and for the diocese to celebrate your ministry with us,” the Standing Committee said in April, offering to make “appropriate financial arrangements” for him.Martins refused, according to the Standing Committee.The diocese now is working with a mediator to settle the dispute, with input from Bishop Todd Ousley, who leads The Episcopal Church’s Office of Pastoral Development and regularly assists dioceses with their bishop transitions. In an email, Ousley declined to comment for this story, citing “this sensitive diocesan matter.”The Rev. Beth Maynard, president of the Standing Committee and rector of Emmanuel Memorial Episcopal Church in Champaign, said by email she wouldn’t respond to questions about the dispute because of the ongoing mediation.Martins announced his retirement plans in October 2019 in an address to the diocesan synod. When reached by phone, he declined to talk for this story about the mediation and the Standing Committee’s efforts to force his early retirement. He confirmed to ENS that he had asked for and received permission to live in Chicago starting in September 2018 because of a “personal family matter,” while returning to his diocese to continue his ministry there.He told ENS, however: “My hope is to remain in office until my successor is consecrated.” The Standing Committee announced in December it was laying the groundwork for a bishop search, but Martins said this week he wasn’t sure how far the search had progressed.The Standing Committee outlined its dissatisfaction with Martins’ living arrangement in its April 15 letter. “Your relocation has increased the financial burdens to the diocese, as your level of involvement in the work of ministry in this diocese and your physical presence in this diocese have greatly decreased,” the letter said. “Full episcopal ministry is not being provided, and you are largely inaccessible.”That letter was drafted a month after Martins joined most bishops across The Episcopal Church in suspending in-person worship at Episcopal churches starting in mid-March in response to the nationwide surge in COVID-19 cases at the outset of the pandemic. Two months later, with new cases on the decline in Illinois, Martins began allowing congregations to return to their churches on a limited basis on May 31.Some Episcopal congregations in the Diocese of Springfield have decided they will continue to gather online only while virus transmission remains a threat at public gatherings. For those that chose to reopen, Martins initially had them cap attendance at 10 people. A week later, Martins raised that cap to 25% of church capacity, mirroring the approach to reopening taken by Roman Catholic churches in the region.Martins also resumed his visitations, starting with St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Alton on May 31. He visited Trinity Episcopal Church in Mattoon on June 7, and on June 14, he joined an outdoor worship service at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Havana. Worshippers sat in chairs spread around the churchyard so they could maintain the distance recommended by public health officials to slow the virus’ spread.Members of the congregation at St. Barnabas presented Martins with a drawing of their church, inscribed to him on the back “with much love, gratitude and thanksgiving for your guidance, leadership and episcopal support.”The Diocese of Springfield is known as one of the more theologically conservative dioceses in The Episcopal Church. Leading up to the 79th General Convention in July 2018, Martins was one of eight diocesan bishops who still refused to allow use of same-sex marriage rites in their dioceses, though most of those bishops, including Martins, reluctantly accepted a compromise resolution to make the rites available in all domestic dioceses.Martins was consecrated as the 11th bishop of Springfield in March 19, 2011. His predecessor, Bishop Peter Beckwith, retired in February 2010, leaving the diocese’s ecclesiastical authority in the hands of the Standing Committee. Between Beckwith’s retirement and Martins’ consecration, administration duties fell to the Ven. Shawn Denney, then serving as the diocese’s archdeacon. Denney, vicar of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Springfield, now is a member of the Standing Committee that is seeking to expedite Martins’ retirement.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Friedman Tennis Center. No. 3 TCU beat No. 28 Oklahoma State 4-3 in the championship match of the ITA Kick-Off Weekend.TCU is now headed back to the ITA Team Indoor National Championship for the second straight year.“We had some guys really step up today,” TCU head coach David Roditi said. “Today I feel like we learned so much and we were able to get the win.”Roditi said last year’s experience in the Indoor Championship helps give the team confidence going forward.“I think last year helps,” Roditi said. “I mean we can’t do any worse, right? We lost all three matches.”The berth to nationals did not come easy. The Frogs had to fight from behind after losing the doubles match point.Oklahoma State’s Temur Ismailov and Lucas Gerch beat TCU’s Guillermo Nunez and Jerry Lopez to start the match. Lukas Finzelberg and Jurence Mendoza finished off Alex Rybakov and Reece Stalder to give the Cowboys an early 1-0 lead.The No. 4 player in the country, Cameron Norrie, got the Frogs back on track. Norrie dominated Ismailov 6-1, 6-2.The Frogs and Cowboys played a tight match from there on out.TCU took a 3-2 lead after Eduardo Nava defeated Tristan Meraut 7-6, 6-4.Guillermo Nunez had a chance to close the match out for the Frogs, but lost a tough one against the Cowboys’ top player, Julian Cash, 6-7, 7-6, 4-6.With the match tied up 3-3, both teams turned to court four. Ironically, Jerry Lopez and Lucas Gerch were locked up 3-3 in the third set when all eyes fell on them.Jerry Lopez was able to will TCU to victory behind the support of the Horned Frog faithful. Lopez won the match 7-6, 5-7, 6-3, clinching a birth to the ITA Team Indoor National Championship.“It was unbelievable,” Lopez said. “Getting out of there with a victory was huge, and you feel such a relief after that.”Lopez said the most important thing was to stay calm — not exactly the easiest thing to do during the biggest match of your career.But Lopez was able to control his nerves and perform under the pressure.“I’m proud of Jerry,” Roditi said. “He just kept hanging in there. There were times where he didn’t feel very good and he came back. He kept sticking mentally in the match.”Coach Roditi said the team will practice only indoors for the next two weeks in preparation for the tournament.The ITA Team Indoor National Championship will be held on Feb. 12-15 in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Meyer, whose name many TCU students know best from the restaurant “Dutch’s” on South University Drive, coached TCU from 1934-1952 and won two national titles.O’Brien is the most accomplished player in TCU history, winning the Heisman Trophy and a national championship in 1938.The third statue is of the man who revived it.With his arms crossed, polo tightly tucked into his khakis and visor fitted firmly on his head, Gary Patterson stands, carved from bronze, an icon on TCU’s campus.In his 20 seasons as a head coach, he’s collected 177 wins, 17 bowl appearances (11 of them wins), two AP Coach of the Year Awards, and countless other honors. In the 20 seasons prior to Patterson’s leadership, the Frogs won just 95 games and appeared in only four bowl games.After giving the university push back for years on the idea of a statue, the head coach agreed when the statue became the dying wish of a TCU donor.“I’m humbled that somebody would want to do it, the university would want to do it,” Patterson said when the statue was built. “But we’ve got football games to win.” On April 2, 2016, Patterson became just the fourth active head coach to have a statue erected in his name. Today, he and Alabama’s Nick Saban are the only of such coaches who are still active.It’s a symbol of the undeniable way that Patterson has lifted TCU Football to national prominence, though the coach’s resistance to the statue is even more reflective of his legacy.Stay humble. Win football games. That’s all.TCU head coach Gary Patterson joins his players for the TCU fight song following a matchup with Oklahoma in 2018.

Over his 20-plus years of coaching, Patterson has made it clear that he never wants any part of that for his players. “Whether you’re in football or outside of football, humility is a lost art anymore,” Patterson said. “Humility actually makes you really good. You’ve got to have confidence, but you don’t need to have arrogance.” In 2009, he won the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award for coaching a team that excels in athletics, academics, and community service.That same year, TCU defensive end Jerry Hughes won the Lott Impact Trophy, an award for the college football defender who best impacts his team, university, and city.This year, linebacker Garrett Wallow is a Lott Impact Trophy semifinalist.”That’s definitely one of my biggest accomplishments,” Wallow said. “I definitely take pride in showing that I do a lot off the field.”That humility Patterson talked about also shows up in his players in many ways that often go unnoticed.Quarterback Max Duggan starts every press conference by shouting out his offensive line and his defense. After rushing for an astounding 154 yards and three touchdowns in TCU’s win over Texas Tech earlier this year, the young signal caller could only praise the efforts of his teammates.”I wasn’t throwing the ball great, and I need to do better on that,” Duggan said. “But the O-line and receivers and everyone stepped up in being able to run the ball and being able to attack them that way.” This dedication to hard work and humility has helped many former Horned Frogs earn good reputations at the professional level.Hughes, whose 11-year NFL career has seen its bulk for the Buffalo Bills, was recently praised by his defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier for being a team leader following the departure of several tenured members of the team.”I think humility is something teaching guys that you’ll do whatever you have to do to be successful,” Patterson said. “At the NFL level, that’s one of the things they talk about our kids when they come back, what they like about them.”Patterson mentioned former TCU running back Sewo Olonilua as someone in this category.After rushing for 1624 yards and 18 touchdowns in his four-year career with the Frogs, Olonilua went undrafted in the 2020 NFL draft. He was then picked up by the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent before being signed to their practice squad on Sept. 6th.On Nov. 7th, Olonilua’s hard work paid off, as he was activated to the Cowboy’s active roster following several members of their running back core dealing with injuries.Another former Frog who has held on to Patterson’s hard work and humility is San Francisco 49ers cornerback Jason Verrett.A two-time All-American in college and perhaps TCU’s best cornerback ever, Verrett has dealt with serious injuries since being drafted by the San Diego Chargers in 2014. Though he made the NFL Pro Bowl in 2015, many have seen his career as a big “what if?”Earlier this season, Verrett was listed as fully healthy and grabbed his first interception since 2016 against the Los Angeles Rams, letting everyone in the country know that he was finally back to his lockdown ways.”All we did was watch JV [Verrett] work for the last couple of years, stay quiet, keep his head down and do everything he could to get back to this football team,” 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said in an interview with ESPN.Colin PostInfogramArlington strong…@Esteban_avila27 x @rimingtontrophy #GoFrogs #OLineU pic.twitter.com/qv2BthfSm5— TCU Football (@TCUFootball) October 14, 2020 TCU head coach Gary Patterson (center) joins his team in kneeling during a moment of silence to represent the Frogs’ fight against racial injustice prior to their 2020 matchup with Kansas State.

(Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer) Bigger than footballThis mantra has been evident for Patterson from the beginning, and it goes well beyond the football field.Soon after he was announced as head coach in Fort Worth, Patterson started the Gary Patterson Foundation with the goal of improving youth education in the city.Focusing on “ONE child at a time” the foundation has helped give hundreds of thousands of dollars to numerous schools in the Fort Worth area since its founding. Most recently, they have focused on improving and updating FWISD libraries with their “Launch Into Literacy” campaign that began in 2018. Even with the impact that his foundation continually makes, Patterson is constantly looking for more opportunities to make a difference.In the fall of 2020, the head coach teamed up with musician Leon Bridges and TV host Chris Harrison to form The Big Good, an organization focusing on helping non profits in the Dallas/Fort Worth community.The group’s first goal was to help families over Thanksgiving. On the Friday before Turkey Day, Patterson himself went to AT&T Stadium to help hand out meals to families in need. His willingness to go help despite the riskes posed by the pandemic demonstrates just how important helping others is to Patterson.”I don’t even have my name on it,” Patterson said of the Big Good. “It’s not that important to me as long as we can help people.”Patterson’s efforts over the years have not go unnoticed. In 2018, he won the Stallings Award, which recognizes a head coach for making a stark difference on and off the field.TCU defensive end Jerry Hughes (98) was a menace on the field and a servant off the field, winning the Lott Impact Trophy in 2009.

In 2011, he won the Rose Bowl, thrusting TCU into the national spotlight. In 2014, he dominated Ole Miss in the Peach Bowl, reminding the nation what they had missed in the inaugural college football playoff. In 2016, he completed one of the greatest comebacks ever to beat Oregon in the Alamo Bowl.He’s won every coaching award in the book, most of them twice. He’s sent dozens of players to the pros, many of whom have become pro bowlers and Super Bowl champions. He’s helped thousands in need in Fort Worth through the efforts of his foundation.Yet, despite all of that, Gary Patterson is only worried about right now. Every year, his message to his team continues to be, “We’re all we need.”After starting the season 1-3 following a blowout loss to Oklahoma, it’s clear that the Frogs took hold of that motto and ran with it, as they’ve won five of their last six games.Center Steve Avila said earlier this season that he would even be the water boy if the team needed.“I always tell the coaches, wherever you need me at,” Avila said. “I can hand out water if you need me to. I don’t have a big deal doing anything.”After playing left tackle at South Grand Prairie High School and joining the TCU scout team in 2018, Avila bought in to the Patterson’s unselfish culture by shifting to guard and center his redshirt freshman season. Now a sophomore, Avila has started six games at center, one at right guard, and one at right tackle for the Horned Frogs.It’s a good thing that TCU did not ask Avila to hand out water, as in October, he was named to the watchlist for the Rimington Trophy, which is presented annually to the top center in the country.”I think that’s what Steve was talking about,” Patterson said. “How are you a good teammate? How do you work? How do you play? How do you practice? All that stuff, and I think all of our guys who have been successful have gone forward and been like that.”Led by guys like Avila, the Frogs have showed what playing as a team can do for them in their last five games.During their hot streak, TCU has scored an average of over 41 points per game in their four wins. In the four games before that, the Frogs averaged just 23.75 points per game.In a win over Baylor on Halloween, five different Horned Frogs recorded a sack, as the Frogs put together their most balanced and effective pass rush of the season. Two weeks ago, TCU had two 100-yard receivers (Quentin Johnston and Derius Davis) and a 100-yard rusher (Duggan) for the first time in the Patterson era. Nevertheless, it was their defense that earned them the 29-22 upset win over No. 15 Oklahoma State.With just under four minutes remaining, safety Trevon Moehrig came up with an interception in the end zone helped seal the win for TCU.“We’ve just been getting better every week,” Patterson said postgame of his defense. “You got to have a little luck and make a couple of plays. But, the kids have been playing hard and we’ve been really playing like this since the Oklahoma game.” With the regular season now over, the Frogs finish 2020 at 6-4. Amid one of the most difficult seasons in sports history, TCU is headed to a bowl game for the 17th time in the last 20 years. His doubters will always remain, but perhaps this year more than ever, Gary Patterson has time and time again proved that he is one of the best coaches in college football. He may not have constructed TCU Football, but he sure did revive it, refusing to lose sight of the principles of humility, hard work, and success along the way.TopBuilt with Shorthand Colin Post is a Sports Broadcasting and Journalism double-major from Houston, Texas.
