Germany has recorded 1,707 new cases of the coronavirus in the past 24 hours, the highest daily toll since April, official figures showed Thursday.Germany has fared better than many European neighbors in suppressing the virus so far but like elsewhere, the number of cases has jumped significantly over the summer holidays.Much of the rise has been blamed on returning holidaymakers as well as parties and family gatherings. Topics : The latest figures, from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for infectious diseases, bring to 228,621 the number of infections in the country since the start of the pandemic.It takes the daily toll back to a level not seen since late April, when the pandemic was considered to be at its peak.The daily record of new cases in Germany is just over 6,000, registered in early April.Ten new deaths were reported in the past 24 hours, bringing the total to 9,253. Faced with a surge in cases, Germany earlier this month introduced free, mandatory tests for anyone returning from areas deemed a high risk for COVID-19 infections.Chancellor Angela Merkel warned on Tuesday there could be no further relaxation of coronavirus restrictions.She urged Germans to follow the rules on hygiene precautions and reminded travellers returning from risk areas that quarantine was not an option “but a must” so long as they could not show a negative test.Some experts however have said that the jump in the infection toll could be explained by a sharp rise in the number of tests being carried out in the country.
USA Cricket has a new name and new logo. USA cricket has a new name and logo. Will it be a new dawn for cricket in the United States?Replaces USACAThat’s what administrators and players are hoping for following last week’s developments. The new governing body is USA Cricket, replacing USACA which was expelled from the ICC annual conference in June.The decision was taken on September 24, the 173rd anniversary of the first cricket match between the United States and Canada in New York City. That match also took place on September 24, 1844.Building a brand“One of the things we really tried to do is build a brand that not only connected with our past and 300 years of cricket in the United States, but also helped paint a picture for what the future of this sport could be,” Eric Parthen, USA project manager for the ICC, told ESPNcricinfo. “We started the process working with Adrenalin, a company out of Denver that has done some work with the NHL, Phoenix Coyotes, Los Angeles Kings.”New logoParthen said the new logo is significant, as it shows USA Cricket is serious about moving the sport into the American mainstream.“The logo process engaged a wider population of people through surveys. Once we got through the survey process, we drove it more internally with Adrenalin, taking the feedback we got both from the [ICC’s USA] advisory groups, and from the surveys in the wider population within the cricket community. We ultimately used that as the guiding principles for creating this logo.”The USACA logo had an eagle in a cricket ball. The new one has a cricket bat which Parthen believes can attract fans outside its largely Asian and West Indian base in the US.Taking sport mainstream“As we want to take this sport mainstream and not just be a sport for the people that are currently playing it or the expats, that bat was the single most identifying factor for cricket within the United States,” Parthen told ESPNcricinfo. “Maybe that’s not true for Australia or England or India, but in the United States, the one thing that mainstream America associates cricket with, is the bat.”The ICC expelled USACA as a member after 52 years, saying that the organization failed to prepare a structured league to improve the game in the country.
