Zimbabwean quick Brian Vitori reported for suspect action again

Brian Vitori, the Zimbabwe pacer, has once again been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action, an International Cricket Council release stated on Wednesday (November 30). His action came under scrutiny once again during the tri-series final in Bulawayo against Sri Lanka on Sunday (November 27) which the visitors won by six wickets.
In a game where he bowled nine overs, returning with figures of 3 for 52, in what was his first One-Day International since July 2015, his action came under the scanner in the report that was handed to Zimbabwe's management.
Vitori had received a suspension for the same in January 2016, but resumed bowling in June 2016 after remedial work and a subsequent reassessment that granted him permission for the same.
With the latest reporting, Vitori will have to undergo further testing within 14 days. Until the results of the tests are known, he is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket.

Brazilian football team in Colombia plane crash !!!

In a tragic incident, a plane flying from Bolivia has reportedly crashed while approaching Medellin, Colombia. There were over 70 passengers and 9 crew members on the flight that was scheduled to land in Medellin before the tragedy occurred around midnight local time. 

Amongst the passengers were also the players of Brazilian football club Chapecoense. The team was set to face Medellin's Atletico Nacional on Wednesday, 30th November, in the finals of the Copa Sudamerica (South American Club Cup). 
This was scheduled to be the 1st leg of the final, with the second to be played in Brazil on 7th December. The match has been suspended.
According to reports, the reason for the crash has still not been determined. Although Elkin Ospina, the mayor of the nearby town of La Ceja, told AFP, "It appears that the plane ran out of fuel." 

The plane was a British Aerospace 146 short-haul plane and had also transported the Argentinian national team earlier in November.
The plane crashed in the mountainous terrain on the outskirts of the Colombian city where Colombia's civil aeronautics agency said it had a team at the airport in response to the emergency call. Mayor Ospina also said that hospitals and medical centres were preparing to receive the injured.

Medellin’s Mayor Federico Gutierrez told Blu Radio, "It’s a tragedy of huge proportions." And also said that there is a possibility of survivors. Let's hope that he is right.
Latest from Colombia - - 81 people on board including top Brazilian football team Chapecoense
- 6 reported survivors
