first_imgWICKETKEEPER/ batsman Anthony Bramble led the Guyana Jaguars spirited fightback with his maiden first class century and stole the limelight on day one of the seventh round Cricket West Indies (CWI) Professional Cricket League (PCL) Four-day encounter between the title-holders, and the Leeward Islands Hurricanes.The 27-year-old Bramble held the innings together after the hosts were reduced to 41-4 at one stage of the Day/Night encounter at the National Stadium, Providence.Watched by a handful of spectators, the right-hander’s effort with the bat has been instrumental in taking the Jaguars to 276-8 when bails were lifted.However, it was Bramble and Shivnarine Chanderpaul’s partnership which ensured the hosts ended the day with a marginal points victory.The pair had manufactured a salvage operation after they had been thrust together with the Jaguars in deep trouble just before the close of the first session. They added 118 for the fifth-wicket, with the ex-West Indies captain contributing 51.Bramble, who brought up his century when he cut Mervin Matthews through backward point for his 14th boundary, is unbeaten on 116 from 197 balls, hitting 16 fours and three sixes.Veerasammy Permaul is the other not out batsman on one.Shivnarine Chanderpaul drew on every ounce of his experience and defied a strong Leeward Islands Hurricanes bowling attack.After opting to bat, the Jaguars were left gasping for breath. Their openers’ Tagenarine Chanderpaul and Chanderpaul Hemraj were off to a sedate start, which resulted in a partnership of just 17 runs off 69 balls.The tourists’ seamers were tight and disciplined, and the dismissal of Chanderpaul was a combination of out-swingers and patience.The 21-year-old struggled once again to rotate the strike and his 35-ball resistance was ended when Jeremiah Louis nipped one away from the opener to have him caught behind for 10.The left-handed Leon Johnson was then trapped leg before wicket to off-spinner Rahkeem Cornwall without scoring, and from 21-2 it became 36-3 when Matthews then claimed the wicket of Vishaul Singh (5) with an extra bit of bounce from the track when the batsman edged him to Devon Thomas in the slips.The session turned decisively in the visitors’ favour as Hemraj, who struck four delectable boundaries in his 25, edged Cornwall to slip where Thomas again obliged with a sharp catch.But Chanderpaul and Bramble then cautiously guided their side through to the first break without further trouble.However, after the break the pair had other ideas as they began the rebuilding process with a steady partnership without major alarm. They gathered the runs at a decent pace – rotating the strike well and putting away the bad balls – as they extended their stand as the session progressed.Bramble was the faster of the two to reach fifty, registering his ninth at this level off just 70 balls, finding the fence on nine occasions, while Chanderpaul, who occasionally came out of his shell with crisp attacking strokes, had no problems in wearing down the tourists’ bowlers, as the pair continued untroubled until the interval.Soon after the interval, Chanderpaul smashed Chesney Hughes for his second six to reach his fifty off 115 balls, but medium pacer Thomas, after getting some reverse swing, then took the key wicket, trapping the left-hander leg before, at 159-5.Keemo Paul (5) went immediately after, caught off the bowling of left-arm spinner Hughes, but Bramble, who was joined by Sherfane Rutherford continued his resolute knock. The pair put together 64 before Rutherford was trapped leg before wicket to Cornwall for 23.Romario Shepherd (22) joined Bramble, and he too provided valuable support until he was bowled by Gavin Tonge. Play resumes today at 14:00hrs.SCOREBOARD GUYANA JAGUARS 1st innings Chanderpaul c wk Hamilton b Louis 6 Hemraj c Thomas b Cornwall 25 Johnson lbw b Cornwall 0 Singh s Thomas b Matthews 5 Chanderpaul lbw b Thomas 51 Bramble not out 116 Paul c Thomas b Hughes 5 Rutherford lbw b Cornwall 23 Shepherd b Tonge 22 Permaul not out 1Extras: (w-1, nb-15, lb-6) 22Total: (for eight wicket; 88 overs) 276Fall of wickets:1-17, 2-21, 3-36, 4-41, 5-159, 6-164, 7-228, 8-263Bowling: Tonge 12-3-43-1, Matthews 17-10-18-1, Louis 16-6-46-1, Cornwall 21-2-80-3, Warde 9-2-30-0, Thomas 9-0-30-1, Huges 4-0-23-1last_img read more

first_imgBy Clifton RossANTHONY Bramble, Chris Barnwell and Tagenarine Chanderpaul stroked half-centuries as the Guyana Jaguars ended day one on 263 for six against the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force and in a promising position, yesterday, at the Guyana National Stadium, Providence. Barnwell clobbered 10 fours in his 58 off 104 balls while Bramble made amends for his failures in the previous rounds, ending on 63 not out off just 49 balls.Meanwhile, it was another Ironman knock from the opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul who grafted 68 from 251 balls with 9 fours before he departed.The gritty opener followed up fifties in Barbados and Antigua, with another innings which spanned 338 minutes. At stumps, the defending champs were 263-6 with Bramble eyeing what could be a brisk century when he resumes today with partner Devendra Bishoo who is 10 not out.Red Force spinner Bryan Charles was the pick of the Red Force bowlers with 4-62 from 23 overs, providing the big breakthroughs when his team needed it.After winning the toss and electing to bat, Jaguars opener Chandrapaul Hemraj cracked six fours and a solitary six during his 36 off 41-ball stay at the crease before he had his stumps disturbed by the cunning spin of Charles. When Hemraj departed, Guyana were 37-1 with Chanderpaul yet to find his gears. Captain Leon Johnson (20) found the ropes on three occasions, but as the former Test batsman seemed to be finding his rhythm, left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein (1-65) served up a beauty which trapped the Jaguars lbw; minutes before the lunch break.When play resumed at 69-2, Chanderpaul on 13 and Vishaul Singh, yet to come off the mark, then sought to get things going for the afternoon session.Fresh off a half-century in the last game, Singh failed to replicate from the last match and succumbed to a catch at gully for 4, to give Charles his second scalp.Tagenarine continued to grind the bowlers and found the occasional boundary as he was joined by Barnwell. The emergence of Barnwell saw the pair upp the scoring as they shared a half-century stand with both players eyeing fifties as the tea interval loomed.Barnwell reached his milestone off 98 balls, batting for roughly 120 minutes with eight fours, motoring past Chanderpaul but departed shortly after, trapped lbw by skipper Darren Bravo’s (1-17) medium-pace, ending the 86-run partnership for the fifth wicket.Bramble announced his presence at the crease with a four and six off Hosein and quickly raced into the 30s. Chanderpaul reached his third fifty of the season after some 295 minutes in the middle, facing 219 balls with just six fours as the Jags held down the final session of the day.After 37 balls, Bramble raced to his half-century with 2 sixes and 8 fours, one of which was smashed through backward-point to bring up his milestone, as the Jags took their score well past the 200-run mark.The Jags suffered a bit of heartache before play ended when Chanderpaul was caught by Red Force wicketkeeper Joshua DaSilva off Charles.The spinner then grabbed his fourth wicket when all-rounder Kevin Sinclair lobbed a simple catch back at him to depart for a 3-ball duck, as Bishoo and Bramble remained firm when play ended. Action continues at 09:30hrs today.last_img read more

first_imgThe Confederation of African Football (CAF), thursday announced that the next edition of its premier tournament after the one in Cameroon will hold in June/July of 2023.According to the acting scribe of CAF, Abel Bah, the event would hold at a different calendar from the AFCON 2022 in Cameroon. The preference of January/February date for the edition in Cameroon is because of weather situation of the Central African country.The timing of the competition has been the subject of speculation after President Ahmad stated in June that it would take place in 2023 while saying he ‘did not know what month’. “As of today, the 2023 Nations Cup is planned for June/July because, to make it clear, in the regulations we have decided to play all Nations Cups in June/July,” Bah told BBC Sport Africa.In 2017, CAF decided to schedule all future Nations Cup for these months, enshrining the change in its tournament regulations.The next Nations Cup will take place in January 2022 however owing to unfavourable weather conditions in Cameroon in June and July, when the host country suffers some of the wettest months of the year.“The Nations Cup in Cameroon, after the request of the authorities, was postponed to January/February,” added Bah.“As of today, we haven’t received the same request from Ivorian authorities.”Given that Cote d’ivoire suffers its wettest month of the year in June, such a request should not be ruled out.However a move to earlier dates in 2023 could prove difficult as the 2022 World Cup will be played between 21 November and 18 December.With a Nations Cup in early 2022 and mid-2023, and the 2022 World Cup it means some of Africa’s leading footballers could play three major tournaments in the space of 18 months.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_img Published on November 12, 2012 at 2:56 am Contact Michael: mjcohe02@syr.edu | @Michael_Cohen13 Facebook Twitter Google+ ABOARD USS MIDWAY, SAN DIEGO, Calif. — In a game that was ultimately decided by antithetical beginnings, the contrasting performances from each team’s star shed light on the bigger picture. While one struggled, the other surged. One was splendid, and the other self-destructed.Behind a torrid start from C.J. Fair, and an inversely horrific one from San Diego State’s Jamaal Franklin, Syracuse raced to a 13-point advantage less than 10 minutes into the game. The lead was never relinquished, Franklin never recovered and Fair compiled arguably the best game of his career with 17 points and 10 rebounds to lead Syracuse to a 62-49 victory in the Battle on the Midway in San Diego Harbor.“I felt really confident coming into the game,” Fair said. “And I saw that I was feeling it early, so I just tried to see how far it could go.”Fair guided the Orange to a 17-4 lead by the 11:51 mark of the first half, as he poured in seven of his team’s first nine points. He took full advantage of the calm breezes that fluttered lightly across the flight deck of the USS Midway in the first half by burying a pair of jumpers in the opening minutes.His midrange jump shot from the left baseline broke a 2-2 tie, and San Diego State never knotted the game or took the lead from that point on. Three possessions later, Fair drilled his team’s only 3-pointer of the game on the left wing.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“The first couple shots I had available were jumpers,” Fair said. “I took them and I made them. But you could see as far as the conditions out here that a lot of shots were getting altered by the wind. We didn’t want to just settle on jumpers instead of getting to the basket.”Where Fair refused to settle for jumpers following his first two makes, Franklin, the reigning Mountain West Conference Player of the Year, grew content. He missed all six of his 3-point attempts on Sunday, four of which came in the second half when the winds picked up significantly.Franklin’s afternoon began inauspiciously, and he turned the ball over three times in the first 2:10 of the game. By the time he managed to enter the scoring column, there were less than five minutes remaining in the half and his team trailed by double digits. He scored just two points in the first half on 1-for-3 shooting and missed all four of his free-throw attempts. His turnover total stood at six.His counterpart, Fair, finished the half with 11 points and six rebounds.“I’ve played against a lot of good teams, but they’re definitely up there in the top five of the best defensive teams we played,” Franklin said.It was a statement personified by Baye Moussa Keita’s chase-down block with 11:22 remaining in the second half. Franklin emerged ahead of the pack on a fast break for what appeared to be an easy right-handed dunk. But Keita raced down the court to block the ball at the rim with his right hand.A foul was called, and Franklin hit both free throws, but it showed he would get no easy baskets against the Orange — fast break or otherwise. Franklin finished the game with 11 points on 3-of-12 shooting and committed seven turnovers while missing seven free throws.“They are really big, and it was frustrating that we couldn’t score,” Franklin said. “When you have someone real big in front of you, it makes it a lot more frustrating.”Meanwhile, Franklin was tasked with guarding Fair for much of the game. And though he said his goal was to keep Fair out of the paint, he failed in that regard. Twelve of Fair’s 17 points were scored in the lane, including a crucial tip in off a miss by Michael Carter-Williams midway through the second half that ended a quick 4-0 run by the Aztecs that saw them pull within 12.Franklin allowed Fair to pull in just two offensive rebounds, but they both resulted in points for the Orange.“I thought when we made a couple of runs and had a little bit of momentum going, we said, ‘One more stop, one more stop,’” San Diego State head coach Steve Fisher said. “Either we couldn’t make a stop, or when we did and had an opportunity, we weren’t able to capitalize on it there.”By that time, though, the winds had picked up and the hole was too deep to climb out of. Fair’s initial outburst seized control for Syracuse early, and when coupled with Franklin’s dreadful performance, it sealed a victory for the Orange.“It was important to get that lead,” Fair said. “You couldn’t really shoot 3s, so we were basically trading baskets. And that kind of hurt them because they couldn’t really get over the hump.” Commentslast_img read more

first_img“Goal Line Stand” runs Thursdays. If you would like to comment on this story, email Michael at katzml@usc.edu or comment below. The highlight of Saturday’s spring game did not involve football.It wasn’t the touchdown that senior quarterback Matt Barkley threw to sophomore receiver Marqise Lee in the corner of the end zone.It wasn’t the pair of interceptions that senior cornerback Isiah Wiley made either.No, it happened when the Trojans stood around with their helmets off, looking down at the field at a 5-year-old boy wearing a cardinal No. 7 jersey.Corey Marquetti | Daily TrojanBefore the highly anticipated game even began, Barkley, senior safety TJ McDonald and senior punter Kyle Negrete stood around as a boy, who goes by the name McClain, stabbed the field as only true USC Trojans can with a fake sword roughly a quarter the size of Tommy Trojan’s.McClain suffers from a rare blood disease that might ultimately prove fatal, but, looking at the boy on that cool Saturday afternoon, you sure wouldn’t know it. As he ran through Negrete’s legs and playfully tackled him, his       life-threatening illness hardly seemed to matter.McClain was able to get on the field with the help of the Make-a-Wish Foundation, which has made it possible since 1980 for terminally ill children to live out their dreams while they can. The foundation has made these sorts of dreams realities for 250,000 children around the world.For many children, their dream is to be on the field with their favorite professional team or to practice with stars like Jets quarterback Tim Tebow or Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade.McClain’s dream? To lead his favorite team, the USC Trojans, out of the tunnel at the Coliseum.And the players seemed to love it. Barkley was seen smiling on the JumboTron, helping the boy stab the field and helping him do traditional Trojan poses, including the “V” for victory. McDonald was beside Barkley, having fun and carrying McClain around the field. And there was Negrete, who, when tackled, received loud applause from the more than 15,000 fans at the game.Traditionally, a spring game is the chance for a player to prove himself, to make his way up the depth chart, to make an impression on coaches and to excite fans for the season to come.But Saturday was so much more than that for everyone at the Coliseum.We didn’t learn who is going to be Barkley’s backup. We didn’t learn who is going to start opposite junior cornerback Nickell Robey, either.We did, however, learn that football is just a game. It is a game that ends when the final whistle blows and the clock hits zero.Unfortunately, a boy like McClain does not necessarily have the luxury of playing a game. Every day is a fight.And to the delight of fans in attendance, the Trojans took a few minutes out of their hectic day to realize this in the midst of Saturday’s chaos.For fans, the lasting memory of Saturday probably isn’t going to involve football at all. Sure, it is going to involve a football field, but that’s about it.Fans will remember McClain being lifted on the broad shoulders of Barkley and McDonald, who already have the weight of an entire fan base on those shoulders, and of the boy doing his best Tommy Trojan impression.And I don’t think the Trojans would have it any other way.In a game that can be so violent and so time-consuming, it was obvious that when McClain was on the field, the only thing that mattered was McClain getting his chance to have a dream come true. It was a chance to show true emotion and humanity and to give hope for those who need it.And without hesitation, the Trojans obliged.As much as we like to think that our student-athletes train 24 hours a day, seven days a week to prepare for the grueling season that begins in September, these are actual people under the helmets and beneath the shoulder pads.People who realize football is only a part of life, who know that sometimes doing the little things can mean so much to someone so small and that making a sick child’s dream come true is more important than throwing four touchdowns or beating a top-ranked team.Besides, the smile that McClain wore was worth more than any tackle or touchdown could ever prove to be.last_img read more

first_img Six Nations 2019: Team-by-team guide CAPTAIN FANTASTICFarrell is a natural leader in the squad and acted as co-captain with Dylan Hartley for the November Tests. However, with Hartley ruled out of the Ireland clash with a knee injury Farrell is set to be sole skipper, providing he is fit after a minor thumb operation, and will have the chance to stake his claim for the armband permanently. Farrell demands high standards from those around him and leads by example on the field. The chance to captain England to a Six Nations triumph is sure to be a huge motivator.SETTING A WORLD CUP MARKERFour years ago, Farrell was part of an England squad that suffered a humiliating pool-stage exit at the Rugby World Cup – becoming the first home nation to crash out in the groups. It was that poor showing that prompted the sacking of Stuart Lancaster and the appointment of Jones. With the next World Cup taking place in Japan later this year, England will be chomping at the bit to head into the tournament with plenty of momentum and Farrell will be desperate to be the catalyst for doing so.Countdown to #IREvENG #CarryThemHome pic.twitter.com/IPkfCSv9sl— England Rugby (@EnglandRugby) January 29, 2019BIG HITTERS BACKEngland has had its fair share of injury problems, with Billy Vunipola missing the entire 2018 Six Nations and the November internationals, while brother Mako was also absent for the latter fixtures. Powerhouse Manu Tuilagi has been blighted by injury throughout his career, and Joe Launchbury missed out in November as well. But all four are in the 25-man squad retained for the Ireland game and England is sure to pack more of a punch with them on the pitch, which should help to create the gaps for Farrell to exploit. The 2018 Six Nations was one to forget for England and Eddie Jones but Owen Farrell can be crucial in a bid for vengeance.England headed into last year’s competition on the back of consecutive Six Nations triumphs, having only been denied a second straight Grand Slam by a final-weekend defeat to Ireland. England will go from the hunted to the hunters against Ireland in its opening game in Dublin on Saturday, but Omnisport looks at why the dangerous Farrell can be pivotal in the bid for Six Nations glory.#IREvENG |  days to go…#CarryThemHome  pic.twitter.com/OR9L4icib8— England Rugby (@EnglandRugby) January 29, 2019TIME TO FLY AT 10?One of Farrell’s biggest strengths, but perhaps also a frustration to himself, is his versatility. The Saracens star is one of the best fly-halves in the world but has largely featured at inside center under Jones as part of a 10-12 axis with George Ford. However, in last year’s November internationals Farrell was utilized in his most effective position in wins over South Africa and Australia, and the narrow loss to the All Blacks. Farrell now appears more likely to start at 12 against Ireland after Ben Te’o was ruled out through injury, but it remains a possibility that England’s captain takes the No. 10 jersey. But that status as pre-tournament favorite proved well wide of the mark, with Jones’ men routing Italy and scraping past Wales before losing their last three to Scotland, France and Ireland.That was the start of a six-match losing streak in 2018, before England finished the year strongly with four wins out of five, the only blot a narrow 16-15 defeat to world champion New Zealand at Twickenham.

Chuck Grassley doesn’t agree with calls from President Donald Trump and other Republicans to reveal the identity of the whistleblower who first reported concerns about Trump’s dealings with the Ukrainian president.Grassley, who wrote significant portions of federal whistleblower laws, says they ensure anonymity for whistleblowers and should be followed.Grassley told reporters in a call Wednesday that it’s important not to reveal the identity of intelligence agency whistleblowers because it could endanger them.He says the whistleblower is less important now that documents have been released of the call that led the U.S. House to begin an impeachment inquiry into whether Trump sought favors from the Ukrainian president that would help Trump’s re-election campaign.Trump and Sen.

first_imgThis Sunday, in Vallecas, there is a duel at the summit. Not classified because Ray is fourteenth and Girona is ninth, but at the level of market value. The Madrid and Girona team have the best rated templates in the category and are cited this weekend in order to start off on a good footing 2020 and demonstrate their value with good play and results. According to Transfermarkt, both clubs have the most expensive templates of Second because that of Girona is priced at 41 million euros and Lightning, 38.4. Both Rayo and Girona are newly descended and this has caused their market value to be high. In addition, they managed to retain key pieces in summer and this is expected to be maintained now in winter. In Girona, Cristhian Stuani stands out, who is currently the top scorer of Segunda with 16 goals, and its market value, according to Transfermarkt, is five million. They are closely followed by other assets that also have a cartel in Primera such as Borja García (four million), Àlex Granell (3.5) and Pablo Maffeo (three). As for Rayo, it is the second team with the highest market value and its stylists are Adrián Embarba (four million), Santi Comesaña (3,5) and José Pozo (three). But the market value of the players does not give points and hence it is necessary to demonstrate quality on the pitch. Girona’s sports director, Quique Cárcel, has dropped this course more than once, considering the rojiblanco team one of the great candidates for promotion. Currently, Pep Lluís Martí’s team is one point away from the playoff. It will be his turn.last_img read more
