New Delhi: The 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League is set to get underway on March 29 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai with Mumbai Indians kicking off the campaign on their home ground.Speaking to IANS, a Delhi Capitals official said that the starting date is set to be March 29 with defending champions MI playing the opener at Wankhede.”I am told that the 2020 edition of the IPL will start on March 29 at Wankhede,” the official said.This means that the teams playing the first couple of games will miss the services of the Australian, English and Kiwi foreign recruits as there will be two international series on at that point in time with Australia and New Zealand clashing in a T20I series that has the last game on March 29 and the England-Sri Lanka Test series which ends on March 31. Speaking to IANS, a senior official of one of the franchises had earlier said that they were keeping fingers crossed that the IPL Governing Council will go back to the old format of having doubleheaders through the tournament and start around April 1.

USC Hospitality unveiled a new website this week for its express catering service, which will replace the USC room service website and include a larger menu.Erika Chesley, the USC Hospitality associate director for special events, sales and marketing, said the new express catering service will focus on delivering prepared food and drinks anywhere on the University Park or Health Sciences campuses.“During this summer and up to this point, we worked on creating a brand-new menu for the new concept,” Chesley said. “We deliver freshly prepared meals that are for groups anywhere from 10 to 500 guests, and pretty much everything is either cold or room temperature service, with exception to the coffee.”Chesley said one of the main changes will be the new website, which she said is an improvement upon the old USC room service site.“The new website is phenomenal,” Chesley said. “The website we had for room service was very outdated … this new site is very easy to use and it only takes a couple clicks to get your order.”Chesley also said the express catering service’s menu will be different from the original room service menu since USC Hospitality plans to offer more selections in the new menu, as well as upgraded versions of old menu items.“We’ve expanded the menu and there are more breakfast selections that are available now,” Chesley said. “When it comes to the lunches, we’ve really upgraded the sandwiches, so there’s a wider variety of sandwich options now than there were before.”Some faculty members, such as Associate Director of the Marshall Undergraduate Advising Office Aba Cassell, have praised the service for being a convenient meal option.“I use the express catering because it’s convenient, and because in terms of service, I believe they do a good job,” Cassell said.Cassell did, however, voice concern over the quality of the service.“In terms of placing the order and paying, it can be a bit difficult, though, because it seems they are short-staffed,” Cassell said.Some students said they would not use the service because of its price.“I saw the [updated] USC express catering website from an email from USC Hospitality, and it seemed to be easy to use and well put together,” said Nicole Matthews, a sophomore majoring in political science. “The only issue that I have with the whole service is that it’s pricey for a college student on a budget and frankly, it’s unreasonable unless you work for a department at USC and need something convenient.”

Ivan Rakitic stated that Edin Dzeko is “one of the best strikers in the world” and that Barcelona must beware of the “reinforced” Roma.Roma and Barcelona are meeting at the stadium “Olimpico” today, in the first round of the Champions League.“Roma is a famous club and they have really stepped up. This is the first match in the group stage and it is very important”, said the Croatian national team player for Barça TV.“We will play at a full stadium and they will have a great support of the fans. They have an organized team and, like every Italian club, they know what to do in every moment of the game. They have reinforced the attack with Dzeko, who is one of the best strikers in the world”, Rakitic added.(Source: klix.ba)
