Cricket News West Indies could give Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team tough challenge: Sir Viv Richards

first_imgIndia has not lost a Test series in West Indies since 2002.India won the four-Test series in 2016 2-0.The World Test Championship begins on August 1. New Delhi: India and West Indies endured mixed fortunes in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. While India lost only one game and qualified for the semi-final where they lost to New Zealand in a pulsating match in Old Trafford, West Indies managed to win only two league games as they finished eighth in the points table only above Afghanistan, who lost all their games. Following the end of the World Cup, both sides now gear up to face each other for three Twenty20 Internationals, three ODIs and two Tests which begin from August 3. With India having dominated the West Indies in all formats in the last encounter at home in October 2018, Virat Kohli’s side will be expected to dominate in the Caribbean as well.However, former West Indies cricketer and legend Sir Viv Richards believes West Indies could pose a challenge to India in the upcoming series. “India-West Indies series have always seen explosive action and I don’t expect anything less this time around. With the current form of the West Indies team, I look forward to them giving a tough competition to the Indian side,” Richards said in a media release issued by official broadcasters Sony. In the last tour of the West Indies, India managed to win the four-match Test series 2-0 but lost the two Twenty20 International series 1-0 after losing the first match in a high-scoring thriller by one run. West Indies had made 245 and a KL Rahul century almost put India on course for a win but Dwayne Bravo held his nerve as West Indies restricted India to 244 to win a world record encounter. The two-Test series between West Indies and India will be played in Antigua and Jamaica and it will be part of the two-year World Test Championship. The first series of the World Test Championship will be the Ashes contest between England and Australia in Edgbaston on August 1. highlightscenter_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

No support from TTCB boss for Cameron’s ICC bid

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) — Another Cricket West Indies (CWI) director has made it clear he will not support former president Dave Cameron in his bid to become the next chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC), and he does not expect the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) that he leads will either.In fact, Azim Bassarath has suggested that Cameron’s bid is laughable.“I don’t know how to react to this but the fact that Mr Cameron is seeking nomination for ICC chairman. I don’t think anybody in the Caribbean will take that serious,” he said on Isports on i95.5FM here.His comment came in response to a question from host Andre Baptiste, who said others in the studio were laughing at the idea of Cameron seeking to lead cricket’s world governing body.“I am also laughing,” Bassarath said as he expressed surprise at the efforts of the former CWI boss who found himself at the centre of controversy at several points during his two terms at the helm of the cricketing organisation.Cameron confirmed a week ago, on Nationwide Sports radio in his native Jamaica, that he would be asking for CWI’s nomination, as he seeks the support of at least two full members of the ICC in his bid to succeed Shashank Manohar.Speaking on the same radio show on Monday, CWI vice-president Dr Kishore Shallow made it clear that Cameron would not be getting his support.But two days later, on the Mason and Guest sports talk show, Barbados Cricket Association [BCA] president Conde Riley urged CWI to support Cameron’s effort, saying that the governing body of cricket in the region needed to support its own.Bassarath said he was not surprised that Riley, a longtime supporter of Cameron who lost the presidency of what was then the West Indies Cricket Board to Ricky Skerrit in the March 2019 elections, would be batting for the Jamaican in this matter.“Maybe he will ask Cricket West Indies to support Mr Cameron but I have my views also — that I will not support it — and I don’t think the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board will support Mr Cameron, even in his nomination in moving forward,” the TTCB president said.Bassarath also suggested that Riley, whom he referred to as his friend and a man who was passionate about cricket, was still stuck in the past and “has not as yet gotten over the fact that Dave Cameron is not president of Cricket West Indies anymore”.That comment was in relation to Riley’s call for West Indies Coach Phil Simmons to be sacked for leaving isolation at Old Trafford in Manchester, where the regional squad is preparing for their three-Test series against England, to attend his father-in-law’s funeral last Friday.The BCA boss had written a letter to board members, quoted by ESPN Cricinfo, in which he called for the Trinidadian’s “immediate removal as head coach”.Skerrit has since defended Simmons, who had received permission to leave the biosecure environment, saying that he still has the full backing of CWI, “no matter what has been said”. The CWI president also contended that the matter of coach Simmons’ exiting and returning to Old Trafford “should never have been controversial in any way”.Bassarath said Riley’s letter was “a bit harsh”.“I think he should have waited until he received more information before he sent the letter…I don’t think that Conde would have done a letter like that calling for the firing of Phil Simmons had he known the medical team had given him the necessary approval to attend the funeral,” he said.He added that Riley had to realise that “the election is over and we must work together as a team for the benefit of West Indies cricket”.“I hope that Conde is going to realise that the bickering and the fighting among directors will cease and let us move on with the cricket. The cricket is more important than any one of us and we have to do whatever has to be done for the benefit of the young men and women in the Caribbean who are involved and who are playing cricket professionally, and try to take the cricket across the Caribbean on an upward mobility,” he added.However, Bassarath said Riley’s misstep was not enough for him to step down, adding that the Barbadian cricket administrator still had a lot to offer cricket in his country and in the region.“I will maybe have a word with him for us to get together, let us work towards the cricket and focus on the cricket alone and leave the politics out at this stage,” he said.last_img read more

Fourth-place finish successful in light of midseason struggles

first_imgMEGHAN CONLIN/Herald photoIOWA CITY, Iowa — Not all the events of Saturday afternoon worked against Wisconsin. Even though the Badgers fell hard to Iowa here, the team locked up a bye in the Big Ten tournament, which gets underway in Indianapolis Thursday.By virtue of Illinois’ 75-68 victory over Michigan State earlier in the day, the Badgers were guaranteed of finishing no worse than a tie for fourth place in the conference by tip-off of their matchup with the Hawkeyes. Wisconsin will face Indiana at 1:30 p.m. Friday at the Conseco Fieldhouse. “The Big Ten tournament is just like another season, so we’ve got to worry about that and be ready,” freshman Kevin Gullikson said.The fourth-place finish for the Badgers is the first time in the Bo Ryan era that Wisconsin has finished outside of the top three in the Big Ten. However, considering the major personnel issues the team had to deal with — losing reserves Greg Stiemsma, Marcus Landry and DeAaron Williams midseason — the campaign is in many aspects a success.Players and coaches seemed satisfied with the finish, considering the hardships they endured.”It was a challenge,” junior forward Alando Tucker said. “With the loss of our players early [and after] readjusting, it was a big challenge for us. I think it made us tougher, makes us stronger … We stayed tough; I’m not disappointed in the effort we put in each night.””It is what it is,” Ryan said. “But, I’ll tell you what: We were right in the mix up until the last week, and they go on the road into the two toughest places [to play] so far this year.”After playing two games in three days, the Badgers will be given plenty of time to rest and prepare for the Hoosiers. “I still think a lot of the guys feel that we can go far, and we’re still talking about winning the Big Ten tournament,” junior point guard Kammron Taylor said.”There is still a lot of basketball to be played, if we can play the normal Wisconsin basketball game,” Tucker said. Gullikson impresses: Although the Badgers as a whole looked to be somewhat fatigued on the court against Iowa, Gullikson, a walk-on from Stillwater, Minn., looked anything but. Statistically Gullikson only pulled down four rebounds and fouled out in 21 minutes, but his defense on Big Ten Player of the Year candidate Greg Brunner was impressive.”You look at Kevin Gullikson out there working, and what he is doing defensively; he has been so impressive with his energy,” Ryan said. “I think if you asked Brunner, he’d probably tell you the same thing. Gullikson did a heck of a job.”True to Ryan’s words, Gullikson did draw the attention of Brunner”I don’t remember having played against him at their place, and he isn’t someone you would forget,” Brunner said after the game, icing his right ankle that he injured late in the game, forcing his early exit. “He was physical, he played hard. He’s a tough guy.”Ohio State wraps up Big Ten title: On Sunday afternoon Ohio State put the finishing touches on its first regular season Big Ten championship since the 2001-2002 season and its first out-right conference title in 14 years.The Big Ten’s top team played at home against the last-place unit in the conference, and the results were, as one might expect, an Ohio State thrashing, as the Buckeyes cruised to a 76-57 victory over the Boilermakers.The win came on Senior Day and was the final home game for four Buckeye starters, Terence Dials, Je’Kel Foster, J.J. Sullinger and Matt Sylvester.Purdue finished the regular season 0-12 on the road.last_img read more

Stingy defense shuts down Minnesota’s offensive attack

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoIt must seem like the opponent is playing defense with six people for the Minnesota Golden Gophers when they play Wisconsin.The first time the two teams met, Wisconsin held the high-scoring Minnesota to a season-low 47 points in a 63-47 win for the Badgers.On Saturday, it was much the same story, as the 14th-ranked Badgers frustrated the Golden Gophers into shooting just 33.3 percent from the field as UW won again, 65-56.For Minnesota, which entered the game ranked second in the Big Ten in scoring with just over 68 points per game in conference play, the 56 points was its second-lowest scoring output of the season.“They do a good job of guarding the basket; they don’t give up many easy baskets in transition,” Minnesota head coach Tubby Smith said following the game.“You’ve got to be patient. That’s the key. They’re not going to gamble, and usually you’re going to be taking a shot at the end of the shot clock.”When Minnesota was patient enough to work the ball inside to its post players, the Golden Gophers found it tough to convert, stymied by their own missed layups and the Badgers’ tough interior defense.“You have to score over them,” Smith said. “They’ve got good, long defensive people inside and good physical inside; [they] play great position defense.”Wisconsin dominated points in the paint, outscoring Minnesota by a 22-12 margin.“We made sure to chest up and not foul them and make sure that they made some difficult shots,” Wisconsin forward Brian Butch said. “Anytime you do that ? it’s tough to make baskets.”One of the most effective defenses for the Badgers was their own offense. For the second straight game, UW was able to hold on to the ball and limit its turnovers (10). Against a team like Minnesota, which likes to get easy baskets in transition off of steals and opponents’ turnovers, that ball control can be just as important as anything defensively.“You have to get back, you?ve got to not let people get to the rim or get wide-open threes,” UW head coach Bo Ryan said.For as poorly as they shot overall, the Golden Gophers were able to find some open looks from 3-point range in transition.Minnesota burned Wisconsin with three fast-break 3-pointers in the second half, including two by guard Lawrence McKenzie ? the second of which tied the game at 45 with just under nine minutes left in the game.That look for McKenzie came off a missed free throw by Joe Krabbenhoft. With the Badgers aggressively going for an offensive rebound, McKenzie’s defender was late to get back on defense and no one helped out defensively.“That’s one of the few in transition that we give up,” Ryan said. “We don’t give up very many, but he was wide open.”Hughes returns to formAfter three consecutive games in which his scoring output was considerably below average, point guard Trevon Hughes hinted at a return to form with his 11-point, six-rebound, two-steal outing against Minnesota.Having scored just 16 points in the previous three games combined, it was Hughes’ decision-making that made the difference Saturday.“He was more consistent because his decision making was more rational and calculated,” Ryan said.And while Hughes failed to record an assist during Saturday’s win, he also kept the ball safe. Hughes did not turn the ball over at all in 34 minutes, marking the first time he has done so this season.“A guy like Trevon isn’t going to get a lot of assists in a game where we go to the free-throw line 33 times,” Ryan said.last_img read more

Captain Jackie Firenze prepares for final game in Syracuse uniform

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 28, 2015 at 8:29 pm Contact Matt: mralex01@syr.edu Jackie Firenze looked like she was starting to tear up.She said she doesn’t like to think about it, but 10 days before her final game at Syracuse, the senior was forced with to think about the inevitable. “It kind of sucks,” she said.Firenze, a two-year captain, has been a leader for the Orange long before she was granted the privilege of wearing the black and white striped band on her right arm. On Saturday, she’ll take the field for the final time as Syracuse (7-10-1, 3-6 Atlantic Coast) hosts No. 7 Clemson (12-3-1, 6-3) at 1 p.m. at SU Soccer Stadium.“Jackie, she’s been crying about it,” her mother, Kelly Firenze, said. “She’s been struggling … especially as it gets closer, knowing that the end is (near).”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe beginning, however, started well before taking the field as a freshman in 2012. The Baldwinsville resident grew up an Orange fan and attended women’s soccer games even before Syracuse head coach Phil Wheddon held the position.When it came time to choose a college, Firenze originally committed to Boston University, but thinking about the field she grew up attending influenced her decision to stay.“She changed her mind at the end and she said, ‘Why would I want to go anywhere else?’” Kelly said.As a freshman, Wheddon said the thing that stood out most about Firenze was an edge to her that he said was probably higher than some of his older players.He said the coaches looked at Firenze then and knew she’d be a captain at some point in her Syracuse career.“Of course it’s challenging stepping into a role where you have a lot more responsibilities,” Firenze said. “But I think I was ready for it.”Firenze said any difficulties adjusting to the new position were lessened by what she learned from Alyscha Mottershead and Jenna Rickan, the two captains her freshman year she credits for helping to mold her into the leader she is now.On the field, Firenze is a vocal presence. She can often be seen shouting directions to teammates and motioning across the field. After a 0-0 tie against Cornell on Sept. 11 — the third straight game SU was unable to muster a goal — Firenze was clear things had to change.She struggled to describe the cause of the scoring struggles but was adamant about figuring it out. The next day, Syracuse held a team meeting and went on to put up two goals in its next game, a 2-1 win over Colgate.The elephant in the room on offense was on the forefront of the captain’s mind.“She’s not afraid,” Wheddon said. “And this is one of the things I appreciate most about Jackie, is she’s not afraid to say the things that are uncomfortable.”On Sunday, the senior walked onto the field for the second half of SU’s game against Wake Forest. Sam Hunt’s “Leave the Night On” blared through the speakers and a proud mother beamed from the wet bleachers.Kelly talked of her favorite memory — when Firenze scored the game-winning goal against UConn her freshman year on a shot that snuck through the goalkeeper’s legs with three seconds left, the only time Syracuse has beaten UConn in the last 21 meetings between the two teams — and mentioned how all good things must come to an end.Firenze has thought of trying to play professionally after Syracuse or coaching at the college level, something her mother said would be the “dream job.” The senior isn’t sure exactly where she’ll go from here, but it won’t be far.“She’s not ready to give it up,” Kelly said. “Soccer is in her future.” Commentslast_img read more

Commonwealth organisers roll out red carpet – and condoms

first_imgGold Coast, Australia | AFP | About 225,000 condoms, 17,000 toilet rolls and free ice cream: welcome to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games village, where athletes and officials will want for little.Ahead of Wednesday’s opening ceremony, thousands of competitors and support staff are pouring in to their temporary home on Australia’s eastern coast.Organisers hope to make the village as comfortable and safe as possible for the 6,600 athletes and team officials — and that includes their sexual health.The large number of free condoms equates to about 34 per person, a robust average of three a day over the 11 days of competition.At the recent Pyeongchang Olympics in South Korea, organisers handed out 110,000 free condoms — a Winter Games record — while 450,000 were on offer at the Rio Olympics, where sexually transmissible Zika was a threat. At the Gold Coast village, competitors can relax with virtual reality computer games, swim, lounge by a man-made waterfall, play the piano or sample the free lollies and ice cream.About 300 chefs will staff the 24-hour dining room, catering for different needs including vegan, vegetarian, halal, gluten-free or lactose-free.The 1,250 apartments and townhouses that comprise the athletes’ village will be sold off or made available to rent from early 2019.The redevelopment of the area is the “most significant legacy project of the Games”, organisers say.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Wrongly Convicted Leonard Cure to be Released from Florida Prison

first_imgFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A man serving a life sentence for a 2003 armed robbery and armed aggravated assault in Dania Beach should be freed while his case is reviewed further, according to the Broward State Attorney’s Office. The prosecutor who convicted him is having serious doubts about eye witness testimony and the lack of any evidence connection Cure to the robbery.Leonard Cure, 50, was found guilty of robbery with a firearm and aggravated assault with a firearm by a Broward jury. Because he was classified as a habitual felony offender, he was sentenced to life in state prison on Nov. 3, 2004.But the Broward State Attorney’s Office is recommending that he should be released immediately “while prosecutors complete a more extensive reexamination of his case.”“This is the right thing to do,” added Broward State Attorney Mike Satz.Cure is expected to be released from the Sumter Correctional Institution in Bushnell next Tuesday.He was convicted of stealing $1,700 in cash from two employees of a Walgreen’s store in Dania Beach on Nov. 10, 2003 (Case Number: 03-019405CF10A).A memo written by Berger reads in part:“The issues we find most troublesome are those surrounding how Cure became a suspect in the first place. Seemingly, a man who had no connection to a Walgreen’s robbery became the main suspect after someone reviewed photos of well-dressed/neat-appearing African-American males. That was it, there was no physical evidence, no witnesses who knew him, nothing but an alleged search in the questionable ‘TRAP’ Program. The case became questionable at the very onset. If the identification was bad, then everything that comes after is bad as well.“The original prosecutor also saw the weaknesses in this case. Once one of the two victims had a difficult time identifying Cure in the lineup and after the first jury came back hung, he offered a below guidelines sentence of 7 years. Cure has now served significantly more time than that, over 16 years. After the hung jury, he continued to maintain his innocence. A second jury convicted him and he was then sentenced by the Judge [Fred Berman] to life in prison.“After considering all the facts and circumstances of this case, it is our conclusion that it is in the best interest of justice to release Cure as soon as possible. We would like to modify his sentence and give time served for his 16 years plus in Florida State Prison. This will allow for the defendant to be released after serving a significant amount of time while we can thoroughly review his case for a potential exoneration.”Click here to read the order modifying Cure’s sentence.Broward County Judge Circuit Judge John J. Murphy III signed the order to release Cure from prison.“I am beyond excited. I have so many thanks for the State Attorney’s Office and the Innocence Project of Florida for paving the way for my freedom. I’m looking forward to spending time with my family for the first time in 16 years,” Cure said to the Innocence Project of Florida upon finding out about his release from prison.last_img read more
