Police believe the body of a fisherman pulled from a harbour in Scotland may be that of a missing Donegal man.It is believed the body found in the sea near the pier at Ullapool harbor yesterday is that of Anthony Toland.Mr Toland, 34, from Glengad in Inishowen, was missing for a number of hours after last being seen on Christmas day. The alarm was raised that evening and police, coastguard and the RNLI carried out “extensive searches”.His body was recovered from the harbour yesterday after the search resumed with the assistance of Grampian Police dive team.Police said that his family have been informed and investigations into the circumstances are continuing.Police do not suspect foul play but are working on the theory that the late Mr Toland may have slipped and lost his footing while returning to his boat. He was the son of Ann and the late Owen Toland and has five brothers and four sisters.He was well-known and respected in the Glengad area where he played for the local Glengad United football team.A local source “It’s such a tragic time of year for anything like this to happen. But the fact that he was such a young man makes it all the harder.“His family are still trying to take it all in,” said the source.Police are still trying to establish exactly how Mr Toland died.

South Africa have left out off-spinner Johan Botha, left-arm seamer Wayne Parnell and middle-order batsman JP Duminy from their Test line-up for the first match of the high-profile series against India starting at Centurion on December 16.Captain Graeme Smith and key batsman Hashim Amla, both of whom recovering from injuries, were expectedly named in the 12-man line-up.Botha, Parnell and Duminy were part of the original 15-man squad and they have now been released to represent their respective domestic teams in the latest round of the Supersport series that begins on Thursday.Parnell and Botha will play for the Warriors, and Duminy for the Cobras.The decision means that there will be a toss up between Ryan McLaren and Lonwabo Tsotsobe for the third seamer’s slot, while Paul Harris is a certainty in the playing XI if South Africa opt for a spinner. Duminy’s exclusion ensures Ashwell Prince will keep the number six slot.South Africa squad for first Test:Graeme Smith (capt), AB de Villiers, Jacques Kallis, Ashwell Prince, Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel, Mark Boucher (wk), Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Ryan McLaren, Paul Harris, Hashim Amla, Alviro Petersen.
Days after calling Ravindra Jadeja a bit-and-pieces cricketer, Sanjay Manjrekar said he was a street-smart cricketer after the all-rounder struck in his first over of India’s final group match of the 2019 Cricket World Cup against Sri Lanka at Leeds on Saturday.Before India’s game agaisnt Bangladesh, Manjrekar had said: “I am not a big fan of bits and pieces players which Jadeja is at this point of his career in 50-over cricket. In Test matches, he is a pure bowler. But in 50-over cricket, I would rather have a batsman and a spinner.”Ravindra Jadeja, who played his first game in the World Cup against Sri Lanka on Saturday, responded with a sharp message on Twitter and said he had enough of Manjrekar’s verbal diarrhoea.Still i have played twice the number of matches you have played and i m still playing. Learn to respect ppl who have achieved.i have heard enough of your verbal [email protected] jadeja (@imjadeja) July 3, 2019On Saturday, Ravindra Jadeja came on to bowl as first change in the 11th over. He struck with his 4th ball when he found turn – he had bowled it slower than his usual speed and outfoxed Kusal Mendis as MS Dhoni completed the stumping.Jaddu grabs a laddu for the much needed breakthrough! #WhistleForIndia #INDvSL #CWC19 Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) July 6, 2019On air for Star Sports at that stage, Sanjay Manjrekar said Jadeja was a street-smart cricketer.”Jadeja is a quick bowler and this is a pitch that’s going to turn. Of the 3 spinning options India have – Kuldeep Yadav and Chahal have been the game-changers for India in the middle for India in the last 18 months.advertisement”Come the semi-finals and finals, although he has been one with the higher average, Kuldeep and Chahal get more wickets, and have their average as a result under 30. India are assuming they are going to play England at Edgbaston, a small ground where the ball will turn for the spinners.”They won’t have the heart to play both wrist-spinners especially the England played those two wrist-spinners in the last game so I see Jadeja as a good compromise, a good option. He can keep the runs down when the pitch is turning.””He will be a force.. just have to contend with people like Morgan and Stokes. So Virat Kohli will have to bowl him at the right time as well,” Manjrekar said.Also Read | World Cup 2019: MS Dhoni turns to ‘former spinner’ Ravi Shastri for adviceAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur slams net run rate rule after missing semi-final berthAlso See
