English Cricket Mourns the Loss of a Great Man


It’s always a sad day for any sports league when they lose one of their own. It’s no different for English cricket that is now mourning the death of an important figure in their circle. This will probably cause the thoughts about the coming back of cricket odds and matches to be set aside.


Lancashire Cricket Club confirmed that Lancashire chairman David Hodgkiss died at the age of 71 due to the Coronavirus. He is the first individual directly involved in the professional British sport to die after having tested positive for COVID-19. Hodgkiss also had underlying health issues even before his passing.


The club published the following statement on Monday morning:


‘Further to the announcement from his family, it is with great sadness that Lancashire Cricket announces the passing of its Chairman; David Hodgkiss, O.B.E.


David served the club with distinction over many years including holding the offices of Treasurer, Vice-Chairman and latterly Chairman.


He was much loved by everyone at Lancashire Cricket Club and respected throughout the cricketing world.


Our sincere condolences and thought and prayers are with his family. A further statement will be released in due course, but at this time we ask that everybody respects that family’s privacy.’


He had been on the board at Old Trafford since 1998 acting the roles of Treasurer and Vice-Chairman before succeeding Michael Cairns in April of 2017 as the Chairman. Hodgkiss was a central figure in the renovation of Old Trafford over the past decade. 


His regime was a period of refurbishment and includes the construction of The Point along with £9 million worth of public funding. Due to the success of his plans, The Old Trafford was awarded both prestigious India vs Pakistan World Cup fixture along with the first semi-final.


At the news of the beloved chairman’s passing, tributes started to flow for David Hodgkiss from the entire sports league. It was led by the managing director of England cricket and the former head coach of Lancashire, Ashley Giles. 


Giles went on his Twitter account to express his grief for the tragedy.





Players also expressed their condolences and shared their impression of the man in the micro-blogging site. 


‘Old Trafford won’t be the same without Hodgkiss,’ said Mike Atherton, the former England and Lancashire star.


Matt Parkinson also wrote how sad the news was and that Hodgkiss is ‘a great man who always had time for everyone and loved the [club]’ and that he will remember the man’s capping speech for a long time.



Alex Davies said this news wa awful and described Hodgkiss as a ‘Funny man who loved the [club]. Played a huge part in getting the club to where it is today’


Davies also shared that it was Hodgkiss that gave him his county cap and that he will forever be grateful to the man.


William Livingstone’s tweet declares that it was a piece of devastating news. He also expressed that Hodgkiss was a pleasure to be around.


Every tweet from each of the players expressed how Hodgkiss was a great man who had time for everyone. They also express how Hodgkiss was passionate about cricket and how he helped bring it to where it is today. 


The devastation of not being able to watch any match nor place wagers on crickets odds weighs nothing compared to the news that a great man is no longer on this Earth.

Affordable Locksmith Colorado Springs - Top Quality Locksmith Work Can Be Inexpensive

All goodies in life come at a price. approximately is it said. However we believe hat where locksmiths are concerned, this has to not be the case. Cheap locksmiths aren't cheap within the way they work or the way they are going around making keys. it's just that these locksmiths charge much less and hence often fall prey to suspicion. We believe that affordable should be a second name to each locksmith service available. there's no point in hiring a locksmith who charges you a really high fee. Hence cheap locksmiths, affordable and cheap that they're , are a way better option available to the so called costlier locksmiths.


Locksmith Colorado Springs


Cheap locksmiths are often looked upon with suspicion. Cheap locksmiths, however good they could be, often fail to urge the gleam of recognition within the service requirer's eyes. Cheap locksmith services suffer from the matter of plenty, ironically. Cheap locksmiths, preferably called affordable locksmiths, because the name suggests, are inexpensive. An old adage goes that everything within the world comes for a price. Well locksmith services are not any exception to the present . What we are saying is just that locksmith services, good locksmith services, often are very less costly.


Cheap locksmiths, the planet over are regarded to be just that, cheap locksmiths. Cheap locksmiths need to handle the foremost delicate locks of a number of the foremost prized cars, houses, bungalows etc. Cheap locksmiths the planet over are regarded to be masters at their tricky and sometimes tiring work. Cheap locksmiths gather enough bangs for his or her buck within the recognition they get. Cheap locksmiths guarantee you the simplest treatment to your car and therefore the great freedom of worry of being locked out of it. albeit they are doing such a lot , and handle all their work with such a lot care, cheap locksmiths are often ridiculed and called also called 'cheap'.


Finally, and unfortunately, there are many locksmiths out there who aren't licensed locksmiths. repeatedly these unlicensed locksmiths who are often also inexperienced, very unprofessional and easily call themselves "locksmiths" are simply trying to earn the maximum amount money as possible. These locksmiths therefore will give deleterious and really misguided advice. Most of the days , these people don't have any real experience in locksmith services. They also lack training within the security industry. they're often very greedy individuals. These aren't cheap locksmiths. These aren't locksmiths in the least . Cheap locksmiths offer an equivalent services offered by other locksmiths, but at a way lesser rate. We like better to call these locksmiths, inexpensive locksmiths or discount locksmiths instead of us calling them cheap locksmiths and thus degrading them.


There should be a word of caution though. There are many touts posing to be locksmiths, who claim to charge you only a fraction of what he other locksmiths are charging you. the most intention of those so called 'cheap locksmiths' is to enter your house and relieve you of your valuables. Hence you ought to lookout and verify the license of the locksmith given to him by the local administration to be doubly sure.

YouTube starts rolling out video chapters feature


YouTube has started rolling out its video chapters features with the aim of helping its users on desktop, mobile or tablets to focus on the portions that matter the most to them.

The feature will also allow creators to better organise their content. It is expected to be particularly of great help for long-form videos.

With such videos organised by chapters, just like a book, users will be able to skip some portions that they may find irrelevant.

"The Video Chapters feature is officially here," the YouTube Twitter handle for creators said on Thursday.

"When Chapters are enabled, viewers watch more of the video, and come back more often on average," it added.

The video chapters feature was soft launched by YouTube in April, The Verge reported.

YouTube users on desktop would know if the video they are watching has chapters when they hover the mouse over the bar that indicates video progress.

This bar will have breaks to indicate the end of one chapter and beginning of another. Hovering over these little breaks will also tell you the name of the chapters.

The same applies to users of other mobile devices as well. But YouTube's phone app will trigger a haptic buzz the moment a user reaches the next chapter.

On other mobile devices, such as tablets, where haptic feedback is not available, when a user lifts his/her finger off the screen, the video progress bar will automatically snap to the beginning of a new chapter, said the report.
