Mitchell Marsh identified as a leader for the future, says Greg Chappell

first_imgAustralian national selector Greg Chappel believes that all-rounder Mitchell Marsh is an appropriate candidate for the role of vice-captaincy of the national team.Chappel said that Marsh, being the captain of Australia A team, would surely prove to be a good option for the position, cricket.com.au reported.”We do have three or four guys who are going to be quite capable. There is an opportunity for them to get some experience in leadership roles. We want to give them leadership opportunities and (Marsh) is one that has got that opportunity. He is captaining Western Australia and he has been identified as a leader for the future,” Fairfax quoted Chappel, as saying.”He will get that opportunity (against India A) and I am sure he will do a good job. I saw him at the Under 19 level – he has got some natural leadership skills. The more opportunities he gets, the better he will get at it,” he added.The Australian team had to go through a major leadership reshuffle after their former captain Steve Smith and former vice-captain David Warner were handed a one-year ban by the Cricket Australia for their involvement in a massive ball-tampering scandal that took place during the four-match Test series against South Africa at New Lands.Since then, the team have been struggling to get a perfect combination of players and leaders in the squad.Earlier, Australian bowler Pat Cummins had endorsed the name of pacer Josh Hazelwood for the vice-captaincy role.Hazelwood had responded in a positive tone and had asserted that it is an exciting role that brings out the best in players.advertisementApart from Hazelwood and Marsh, there are other names like Mitchell Starc and Nathon Lyon who are likely to be considered for the position of Tim Paine’s deputy.(With ANI inputs)last_img read more

Moto G7 concept video leaked, shows waterdrop notch, bezel-less screen, dual cameras

first_imgMotorola is all set to launch the Moto G6 Plus in India today. The smartphone manufacturer has already launched the other two phones under the G6 series, aka the Moto G6 and the G6 Play in the country back in the month of June this year. Meanwhile, looks like, Motorola has already started working on the follow-up series as a 3D concept video of the Moto G7 surface online, showing the full design of the phone.Not much is known about the Moto G7. A couple of weeks ago, live images of the Motorola One alongside an ‘unknown’ phone surfaced online. Reports now suggest that the then unknown device was actually the Moto G7. Based on a couple of leaks and rumours from the past, Waqar Khan created a 3D concept video and uploaded it on YouTube. The concept video shows the complete design of the phone from both front and rear side.The video shows the Moto G7 in four colours — red, white, dark blue and light blue. On the front, the Moto G7 is seen with Oppo F9 Pro and Vivo V11 Pro like waterdrop notch design. But sadly, the waterdrop notch on the G7 doesn’t look as promising as on the Oppo and Vivo phones. The design of the notch is also different compared to the F9 Pro and V11 Pro. The notch includes the selfie camera and also the earpiece. With the waterdrop notch onboard, the bezels on the Moto G7 have been reduced on all sides.advertisementOn the left side, the Moto G7 is seen sporting both the power as well as the volume buttons. This means the SIM card tray will be on the right side of the phone. As per the video, looks like the G7 will boast off a glass back with a circular shaped camera module on the top edge followed by the fingerprint sensor just as the G6. As far as the rear panel design is concerned, the G7 will look much like the G6. Looks like, Motorola is in no mood to bring the in-display fingerprint sensor on its phones anytime soon, unlike other phone makers like Oppo, Vivo, among others.The circular camera setup on the rear panel includes two sensors on it. The megapixel count, however, is yet to be revealed. The Moto G6 also packs a dual camera setup on both rear and single on the front. The Moto G6 includes a primary sensor of 12-megapixel and secondary sensor of 5-megapixel on the rear panel. The rear camera of the G6 is paired with LED flash. On the front, the Moto G6 packs a 16-megapixel selfie shooter with LED flash.Going by the 3D concept video, it also looks like that the G7 will come with a bigger screen than the predecessor. The G6 sports a 5.7-inch display with 1080 x 2160 pixels resolution. Under the hood, the G6 comes with 1.8GHz octa-core processor, 4GB RAM, and 3000mAh battery.last_img read more
