Press Association QPR owner Tony Fernandes wants Harry Redknapp to remain in charge at Loftus Road if the club are relegated. Rangers’ Barclays Premier League future is looking bleak ahead of Sunday’s clash with Wigan as they sit seven points adrift of safety with only seven matches remaining. Speculation will shroud Redknapp’s position should they slip into the npower Championship, but Fernandes told London Call-In: “I want stability more than anything. I wanted it with Neil Warnock and Mark Hughes, so it’s third time lucky with Harry. I think he is the man.” He went on: “We understand each other well and he knows how committed the shareholders are. “He has a great coaching staff and philosophy – he’s a fantastic man and I would love to keep him as long as he wants to stay.” Fernandes has confirmed there will be departures from Rangers regardless of what happens over the coming seven games. “We will have to sit down with Harry and discuss who we want to keep and who would go,” he said. “Obviously there will be players that will go regardless of if we stay up or go down. We want players who can give a lot to the club for a long time. “I do see players going, but we do have the nucleus of a good squad now which we have had to rebuild. “Every single player who has left QPR has not stayed in the Premier League and I think that shows how much rebuilding we had to do.”

COLOMBO (Reuters) – Left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja broke the back of Sri Lanka’s resistance after lunch to secure India’s series-clinching victory by an innings and 53 runs in the second Test on Sunday.The all-rounder claimed his ninth five-wicket haul as Sri Lanka, forced to follow on after being shot out for 183 in the first innings, made 386 in the second before collapsing minutes before the tea break on the penultimate day.It was a first victory by an innings or more for India in Sri Lanka and, following their biggest victory by runs in Galle last week, ensured an eighth straight series triumph under Virat Kohli.“We said this morning that even if we don’t get wickets early on, we are going to enjoy the tough times because they really improve you as a side and you need those tough times to improve as cricketers,” the India captain said.“We were very happy that we went through that difficult phase as well, for you never want to get complacent as a side.”Kohli will fancy equalling Australia’s modern era record of nine consecutive Test series wins when India host Sri Lanka for three matches later this year.Sri Lanka will take a modicom of confidence into that series from a second innings resurgence that was built around the 191-run stand between Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis, who fell for 110 on Saturday.Lefthander Karunaratne’s gallant 141 merely delayed the inevitable on Sunday, though, as Jadeja (5-152) and spin partner Ravichandran Ashwin (2-132) tormented Sri Lanka on a worn-out track where the ball spun alarmingly and often kicked off.Sri Lanka had resumed the fourth day on 209-2 at the Sinhalese Sports Cricket Ground with Karunaratne continuing his grim battle with the Indian bowlers.Nightwatchman Malinda Pushpakumara threw away his wicket, attempting a bizarre reverse slog against Jadeja who dismissed Sri Lanka skipper Dinesh Chandimal for two in his next over.Karunaratne and former captain Angelo Mathews resisted India for a while during a 69-run stand but Jadeja returned to wreck Sri Lanka after the lunch break.Karunaratne’s defiant knock, which included 16 boundaries, came to a cruel end when he was presented with an unplayable delivery that reared up, hit his gloves and ballooned into the air for Ajinkya Rahane to catch behind the wicketkeeper.Mathews followed next, edging Jadeja to perish caught behind for 36 and Hardik Pandya claimed a couple of late wickets to hasten Sri Lanka’s collapse.“We were outplayed in the first innings both with bat and ball,” Chandimal said after his team lost a test inside four days for the second time in the series.“Credit goes to them, they batted brilliantly in the first innings and put us under huge pressure. I’m really happy the way guys played in the second innings.”Jadeja, who smashed 70 not out and claimed seven wickets from the test, was adjudged man-of-the-match.Rahane was the bright exception in India’s otherwise poor catching display, grabbing four in Sri Lanka’s second innings alone.Wriddhiman Saha also shone behind the stumps, taking a couple of spectacular catches, effecting a stumping and conceding only four byes on a pitch where the ball frequently misbehaved.Pallekele hosts the dead rubber third and final Test from Saturday.INDIA 1st innings 622 for 9 decl (C.

(Katie Zhao | Daily Trojan) Outside of deciding on weekend plans, we face this dilemma all the time. We live in a world of information overload, of breaking news every 15 minutes, of thousands of tweets posted a second. Instead of making a choice to explore the new and unknown, we tend to stick to what we know, what is comfortable and what we have already been exposed to. At its worst, we can tumble down rabbit holes of extremist ideology, surrounded only by like-minded folks and unable to consider the opinions or needs of others. At its most OK form, we rewatch “Gossip Girl” for the fourth time instead of streaming a new show (or, you know, going outside). “There are so many cool things happening in L.A. all the time, and I just stay in my room,” said my housemate as we passed a flyer pinned to the bulletin board of a Mexican restaurant near Union Station. His statement was painfully relatable. The advertisement described an upcoming art show of some sort, featuring local creatives at a small venue downtown. In a rush to get back to campus, neither of us snapped a photo so we could remember to attend the event, but the posting reminded us of all the shows happening around the city, underground or otherwise. I can’t believe I was worried. I mean, c’mon, this is L.A. Once I opened the door, the music scene came pouring out. My French class introduced me to Sophie Gragg of The Luna Collective. I started going to the house shows she would organize and discovered some USC talent. Eventually, I asked her for a list of local artists to check out, whom I researched or stumbled upon at other concerts in the area. After a while, I started discovering musicians myself. Friends, friends of friends, hours of mild Instagram stalking or Facebook event browsing introduced me to so many artists I now love and appreciate. I’m not saying that staying home and relaxing is not a completely respectable use of your time. Do what you need to do after a long week! Treat yourself, take a nap or binge some TV. But, there is a difference between relaxing and being too lazy to go out and experience something new, especially something in the local art scene. And I don’t want to be lazy! When I first came to USC, I wanted to do everything: make friends, join clubs, explore L.A. and go to local concerts. When I was in high school, I was incredibly active in the young Bay Area music scene. Many of my friends were in bands, so I would go to their shows to support them from the crowd or photograph their gigs. I befriended the other musicians with whom they shared bills, building a robust circle of music friends. Those concerts quickly became some of my fondest high school memories. In turn, when heading to college, one of my biggest worries was not being able to find a music scene as good as the one I was leaving back home. The city of Los Angeles has at least five cool local art events happening every night. If you sign up for newsletters like We Like L.A. or check out websites like DoLA and Time Out Los Angeles, you’ll see an abundance of activities to check out. One can become overwhelmed looking at all the possible Friday night plans, giving Angelenos a problem opposite of what some small-town folk experience: too much happening, not enough time. Deciding what music to dive into is kind of like choosing your major. When you apply to college, determining what you want to study can be a nearly impossible process. Even when you arrive at school, you can switch to other schools or programs until you decide what’s right for you. The process of choice seems like a lot at first, but once you go through the process of elimination — getting rid of what you definitely don’t want to study — choosing what to focus on feels a lot easier, right? When overwhelmed, it’s a lot easier to just lay low and stay home than to choose what to do. I fall victim to this problem myself, clicking “Interested” on four different Facebook events for concerts happening on a Saturday. Wanting to go to all of them, I sometimes choose to go to none, refusing to pick a favorite by avoiding picking at all. Once I was knee-deep in the local music scene, I felt like I was swimming. Typical of a freshman, I looked at the number of artists surrounding me with wide eyes, unsure of where to even begin with really “getting into” their music. But once I dove in, I was able to prioritize and manage the music I cared about. Eventually, I could pick between concerts happening on a Saturday night. So, if you feel overwhelmed, it’s probably just the beginning. Do your research. Figure out what concerts and other local events make you excited, what makes you tick. Going to events that actually exhilarate you is so much better than going just for the sake of going. Fiona Pestana is a junior writing about Los Angeles’ local music scene.
