Revitalised Moeen enjoying run of form in limited overs cricket

  Revitalised Moeen enjoying run of form in limited overs cricket England all-rounder Moeen Ali is once again playing a pivotal role in matches, as he rediscovers his form. Following a hugely frustrating Ashes series – where he averaged 19 runs with the bat and over 100 with the ball, the Warwickshire star has used the limited overs matches to revitalise his cricket. As England defended a low total of 234 in the third ODI at Wellington, Ali bowled terrifically economically, and took two wickets in two balls to precipitate a New Zealand collapse and clinch the game for England. Finishing with figures of 3-36 off his ten allotted overs, he was understandably very happy with his performance. “In one-day cricket lately I feel I’ve bowled quite well in Australia and I feel as though I can turn a game like that in terms of not just taking wickets but trying to bowl tight and then the wickets will come. A lot of the times they don’t come but I managed to get three quick wickets and the obviously Rash (Adil Rashid) had two as well.” Working in tandem with Rashid will be key for sustained success for England in the ODI form of the game. If the duo can stifle run rates like they did in Wellington, this team will be justified in having lofty ambitions. Whether or not Moeen can convert this form into test cricket remains to be seen in the two match series at the end of this tour, but England fans will be happy to see their utility-spinner with a smile on his face once again.

The 46-year-old actor was paid the hefty amount to re-film scenes for the Steven Spielberg-directed movie - compared to the $1000 Michelle Williams was paid to reshoot - after its leading actor Kevin Spacey was accused of making sexual advances towards actor Anthony Rapp.

Kevin Spacey © AP Kevin Spacey Spacey was booted from the movie and replaced by Christopher Plummer, causing a number of reshoots to take place over the Thanksgiving week last year.

And now it has been confirmed that Mark has handed over his entire fee to support the cause.

After receiving a salvo of criticism from crazed feminists that know nothing about business, math, or contract law, movie star Mark Wahlberg has donated the $ 1 . 5 million he rightfully earned in re-shoots for "All The Money In The World" to the " Time ' s Up " campaign in honor of his co-star Michelle Williams.

Lawyer Nina Shaw, who is heavily involved in Time's Up, told a panel at SWSX: "Yes, Mark has written that cheque. Men often get paid more, not because they're better actors, but they're in stories where they drive the narrative. The reason they drive the narrative is they're in stories that are picked by men."

Mark had previously vowed to donate his fee to the Time's Up movement in Michelle's name.

He had said at the time: "Over the last few days my reshoot fee for All The Money in the World has become an important topic of conversation. I 100 per cent support the fight for fair pay and I'm donating the $1.5 million to the Time's Up Legal Fund in Michelle Williams' name."

Pellegrino offers apology to fans after Newcastle defeat

  Pellegrino offers apology to fans after Newcastle defeat Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino has issued a public apology to the club’s fans after his side were embarrassed 3-0 by Newcastle United yesterday, as reported by the club’s official website. Saints were behind after just 63 seconds at St James’ Park and failed to really recover as they were consigned to another loss in the league, meaning that it’s now just one win in 17 top-flight games for Pellegrino. The club currently sit just one point above the relegation zone in the Premier League with just eight games in the season remaining. Saints still have to face Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal before the end of the season, too. The Saints boss addressed the fans following the defeat: “I would like to say sorry to our fans, because we couldn’t show the value of the club. We couldn’t represent our club at this level, but we have eight games to go and we are still alive.” The club have been steadily going downhill for some time now and it seems that unless they can find some goals from somewhere, they will be plying their trade in the Championship next season. He continued and discussed how he can help his side to save their season, with the FA Cup quarter-final clash against Wigan Athletic next on the agenda for Southampton. “We are still in a position that we can change to save the season. We’ve got the FA Cup now and we’ve got three weeks to prepare for the next Premier League game.” “When you are in a difficult situation you have to be together, you need togetherness in the club.In football, it is like this.” “It’s really sad when you don’t get positive results and everybody looks worse than they are.

Actor Mark Wahlberg has given away the $ 1 . 5 million (£1 m ) he made for the reshoots on All the Money in the World, after it was revealed that his co-star Michelle Williams was paid just a day for the extra work.

According to a tweet from USA Today entertainment editor Andrea Mandell, Wahlberg will donate the money in his co-star’s name to the legal defense fund of Time ’ s Up , the Hollywood-led anti-sexual harassment initiative. “Over the last few days my reshoot fee for All the Money in the World has

Mark admitted the pay gap on 'All the Money in the World' was "very awkward".

He said: "It didn't take much to make the decision [to donate the money]. It was just the right thing to do, you know? And Michelle is a fantastic actress. It's not me who decides who gets paid what. Your value's based on what the marketplace dictates, and with that particular situation, it was very awkward.

"It was like, you know what, we'll donate that and they need the rest of the money that I got paid to do it too, because I, like everybody else, did the movie to make the movie with Ridley Scott. I took a substantial pay cut."
