(Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)Fortunately for the Miami Hurricanes, this inconsistent season will come to an end on Saturday. However, the program couldn’t even get through the final week without drama, as rumors are swirling about Jeff Thomas.While the Hurricanes don’t possess consistent play at the quarterback position, Thomas has constantly shown he’s a threat on the outside. The sophomore wideout has 35 receptions for 563 yards and three touchdowns.Although it’s just speculation as of now, there is growing concern that Thomas is leaving the team. This news is coming off the heels of his recent absence at Miami’s practice.BREAKING: Miami Hurricanes’ leading receiver Jeff Thomas not at practice as rumors swirl he’s left the [email protected]_Navarro has the scoop: https://t.co/q6toxFb6o0 pic.twitter.com/y1CaGJOPbb— The Athletic (@TheAthleticMIA) November 21, 2018The report states that Thomas and the coaching staff previously had a fallout.Considering that Miami kept him out of the starting lineup against Virginia Tech over the weekend, perhaps tension is rising between the two sides.Despite all this controversy, the Hurricanes have told the media that Thomas remains a member of the football team.As of this moment, before we go out to viewing, we have been told that Jeff Thomas is still a member of the Miami Hurricanes football team.— Christy Chirinos (@ChristyChirinos) November 21, 2018With the Hurricanes playing the Pittsburgh Panthers on Saturday, the timing of this news is quite bizarre. Either way, it’ll be worth monitoring Thomas’ status with the team.last_img read more

His best bowling figures were six for 44 against the Windies in April 2017. After breaking into the international scene as a 17-year-old, Amir was handed a five-year ban for his involvement in spot fixing scandal in 2011. Amir returned from his ban in 2016 and played 22 Tests, picking up 62 wickets.”It has been an honour to represent Pakistan in the pinnacle and traditional format of the game,” Amir said in a statement. “I, however, have decided to move away from the longer version so I can concentrate on white ball cricket.”Playing for Pakistan remains my ultimate desire and objective, and I will try my best to be in the best physical shape to contribute in the team’s upcoming challenges, including next year’s ICC T20 World Cup.”It has not been an easy decision to make and I have been thinking about this for some time. But with the ICC World Test Championship commencing shortly, and Pakistan boasting some very exciting young fast bowlers, it is appropriate that I call on my time in Test cricket so that the selectors can plan accordingly.”I want to thank all my team-mates as well the opponents in red ball cricket. It has been a privilege to play with and against them. I am sure our paths will continue to cross in limited-overs cricket as all of us play and compete with the same vigour and determination.advertisement”I also want to thank the PCB for providing me the opportunity to don the golden star on my chest. And, I am grateful to my coaches who have groomed me at various stages of my career.”Also See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
