Powell boosts Scorpions for Red Force clash

first_imgIn a bid to address the poor batting fortunes of the Jamaica Scorpions, the national selectors have made two changes heading into the team’s fourth-round clash with Trinidad and Tobago Red Force at Sabina Park, starting today.In comes recent West Indies one-day international recruit, all-rounder Rovman Powell, and former captain and batsman Paul Palmer Jr, while out goes opener Trevon Griffith and wicketkeeper Chadwick Walton.The 23-year-old Powell and Palmer Jr are yet to see any action this season, with Powell recently returning from Zimbabwe with the West Indies team, having toured Sri Lanka with West Indies ‘A’ a month earlier.Palmer Jr, in the meantime, who was entrusted with the leadership position last season, but who was overlooked at the start of this year’s campaign, has been named in various Scorpions 13-member squads since the start of the tournament three rounds ago but is yet to make his seasonal debut.The Robert Samuels-led Scorpions will enter the contest one place above the Red Force in the six-team championship.Jamaica are fourth on 28.6 points, 1.6 points ahead of Trinidad, who are fifth. The table, which sees a mere 6.6 points separating the top five teams, is being led by two-time defending champions Guyana Jaguars on 33.6 points.They are followed by early-season pace setters Barbados Pride on 33.4 points and surprise package thus far, the Leewards Hurricanes, on 29.4.CRUCIAL GAME”Based on the position of the teams in the standings, it will be a very crucial game,” said Jamaica batsman AndrÈ McCarthy.”Trinidad is always a tough team and has rivalry with us, so it is always our intention to beat them. This match is no different, and it is for us as a team to get our game together, including our batting, which has been struggling a bit.”The Scorpions, who are hoping to better their third-place finish last season, has so far registered a win, a loss, and a no-result, the same as the Red Force.They are, however, slightly ahead of their opponents based on points awarded to fast bowlers as per a new West Indies Cricket Board regulation.Jamaica will look to in-form opener John Campbell, who is third in the batting charts, Jermaine Blackwood and Andre McCarthy to lead their batting, which, with the absence of Walton, could see young Brandon King, who has been part of the squad, making his seasonal debut.As for their bowling, it is again likely that it will be spearheaded by captain and spinner Nikita Miller, along with fast bowler Raynard Leveridge and Powell.Trinidad, in the meanwhile, will welcome the return of new West Indies batsman Jason Mohammed, who also played in Zimbabwe, with the diminutive right-hander set to lead their batting, while bowling-wise, much will be expected of Jamaica-born fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell, who was drafted in the off-season.SCORPIONS (from): Nikita Miller (captain), Fabian Allen, Jermaine Blackwood, John Campbell, Derval Green, Damion Jacobs, Brandon King, Reynard Leveridge, Andre McCarthy, Paul Palmer Jr, Rovman Powell, Devon Thomas, ShacayaThomas.RED FORCE (from): YannickOttley (captain), YannicCariah, Sheldon Cottrell, JydGoolie, Kyle Hope, Jon-Russ Jagessar, Steven Katwaroo, Imran Khan, Jason Mohammed, Khary Pierre, Roshon Primus, Isaiah Rajah, Marlon Richards.last_img read more

Smith’s experience is useful for Barbados Tridents – Holder

first_imgWest Indies bowler Jason Holder, who is leading Barbados Tridents in the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL), has said that former Australian captain Steve Smith is helping the team with a ‘wealth of knowledge on the field’.Steve SmithThe comment came after Smith played his debut match at CPL, where he helped Tridents register a 30-run victory over Shoaib Malik-led Guyana Amazon Warriors.“Definitely it does (help having Smith’s experience). We’ve got a wealth of knowledge on the field,” Cricket.com.au quoted Holder, as saying. “Smithy was a successful captain. He shared a lot of knowledge,” he added.Smith, along with young West Indies batsman, Shai Hope, built a steady third-wicket partnership of 105 runs to stabilize his team’s position after they lost two early wickets at a meagre score of 11 runs. He contributed 41 runs to the scorecard, before getting out at one of Imran Tahir’s deceiving deliveries.The Australian batsman is currently serving a 12-month ban from International cricket for his alleged role in the massive ball-tampering scandal during the third Test match against South Africa at New Lands.Barbados Trident’s next encounter is with Keiron Pollard-led St. Lucia Stars on August 18.last_img read more

Federer continues his dominance

first_img“I am on a nice roll right now and I am playing in Indian Wells next,” Federer said. “I have won there the last three years, so hopefully I can win again and beat Vilas’ record there. “Records are meant to be broken – but if I don’t, it’s all right,” he added. “I will start all over again.” Youzhny broke Federer in the first game with a crosscourt forehand and held serve to lead 2-0. But Federer broke in the fourth, eighth and 10th games to close out the first set. “I must admit that Mikhail put a lot of pressure at the start of the match, and I really needed to step up my game,” Federer said. In the second set, Federer broke in the second and sixth games. He had six championship points at 5-2, but Youzhny saved them all in a marathon game before Federer served it out. Federer has now won seven titles – including the 2007 Australian Open – since last year’s U.S. Open. He extended his record over Youzhny to 9-0. Youzhny, who won in Rotterdam last week, defeated Nadal in the quarterfinals. Federer’s last defeat was to Andy Murray in the second round of the Cincinnati Masters last August. Roger Federer won the Dubai Open for the fourth time in five years on Saturday, beating Mikhail Youzhny of Russia 6-4, 6-3 in the final. Federer won his 41st straight match, tying Bjorn Borg for the fourth-longest streak in the Open era and leaving him five short of Guillermo Vilas’ 1977 record. Ivan Lendl (44 in 1981-82) and John McEnroe (42 in 1984) also are in front of Federer. center_img “It was a bit of a rough start for me this year, as it always happens with me in Dubai,” Federer said. “But I am happy that I saved my best for the last.” Top-seeded Justine Henin of Belgium won the Qatar Open with a 6-4, 6- 2 win Saturday over Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova. The second-ranked Henin won, who won the Dubai Open last week, broke a sequence of Russian domination in Qatar dating back to 2003 when Anastasia Myskina won the title. Myskina repeated her performance in 2004, while Maria Sharapova and Nadia Petrova took the title in 2005 and 2006, respectively. Henin showed no fatigue despite playing three sets against Patty Schnyder on Thursday and Jelena Jankovic on Friday. “I like to win titles I have not won before,” Henin said. “I like the Gulf. Dubai is like a home.” Fourth-seeded Jurgen Melzer of Austria ended Evgeny Korolev’s eventful run in the Tennis Channel Open on Saturday, beating the unseeded Russian 6-7 (4), 6-2, 7-6 (4) in the semifinals. Not only was Korolev the lone unseeded semifinalist, he was the only player among the final four to lose a round-robin match (to Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina). But Korolev first stood out when he defeated top-seeded defending champion James Blake 6-2, 6-4, in his opening-round match on Tuesday. Korolev initially was declared the round-robin group winner based on his victory over Blake, but the ATP Tour reversed that decision on Thursday before switching back to Korolev on Friday. Korolev came back to take a 5-3 lead in the third set before Melzer rallied to tie it at 5-5. After that, Melzer never trailed. He took a 6-5 lead before Korolev knotted the score at 6. Melzer then took a 4-1 lead in the tiebreaker, which he won 7-4. Qatar openLas Vegas openMexican OpenEmilie Loit earned her third career WTA title by beating Flavia Pennetta 7-6 (0), 6-4 Saturday to win the Mexican Open for the first time. The 10th-seeded Frenchwoman came back in both sets. “I’m happy to win for the first time, I came before, but I finally won,” said Loit, who is 52nd in the WTA rankings. Pennetta played in her fourth Mexican Open final in a row. The Italian led 4-2 in both sets, but made mistakes that Loit capitalized on. In the men’s final, Spaniard Juan Carlos Ferrero will face Juan Carlos Chela. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Five things we learned in Serie A

first_img0Shares0000Flying high for Christmas: Juventus are eight points clear of second placed Napoli. © AFP / Isabella BONOTTOMILAN, Italy, Dec 23 – Mario Mandzukic was on target as Italian top-flight pacesetters Juventus beat Roma 1-0 to stay unbeaten in Serie A before Christmas.Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli are second, eight points behind the seven-time reigning champions, after seeing off struggling SPAL 1-0. But Inter Milan are now eight points adrift of Napoli, who they play on December 26, after being held late 1-1 at bottom club Chievo, with city rivals AC Milan dropping out of the Champions League places, with a 1-0 defeat to Fiorentina.Here are five things we learned from Serie A this weekend:Ronaldo ready for a restCristiano Ronaldo was denied by a solid Roma goalkeeper Robin Olsen. © AFP / Filippo MONTEFORTECristiano Ronaldo could rest for the first time since his 100 million-euro ($117 million) move from Real Madrid last summer in next Wednesday’s game at Atalanta, coach Massimiliano Allegri said.The 33-year-old has started every one of Juve’s 17 league games, scoring 11 goals, being substituted just once, in the final 10 minutes against Fiorentina this month after he scored the third goal from the spot.“Cristiano Ronaldo had several chances today and happened to come up against a goalkeeper having a stunning performance. He may well rest in the next match,” said Allegri.Ghosts of past haunt RomaAS Roma Serbian defender Aleksandar Kolarov took a knock as his side fell to tenth in Serie A. © AFP / Isabella BONOTTORoma coach Eusebio Di Francesco conceded his side lived in fear of past defeats as they fell to an eighth consecutive loss to Juventus at the Allianz Stadium in Turin.“The team lived the fears of previous games, playing with little certainty,” said Di Francesco as Roma, who finished third last season, slipped to 25 points behind the leaders.“In the second half we let ourselves go, accepting more duels, were better at managing the ball.“The maturity of Juventus is superior, but I’m happy with Roma’s reaction,” added the Roma coach.Despite being 10th in Serie A, Roma are just four points behind Lazio, who occupy the final Champions League spot.Inter reel at Chievo levellerSearching for solutions: Inter Milan coach Luciano Spalletti shocked at dropping points to bottom club Chievo. © AFP / Vincenzo PINTOLuciano Spalletti said he was shocked as Inter Milan allowed bottom club Chievo to snatch a point.Chievo’s veteran captain Sergio Pellissier struck with a lob in stoppages to cancel out Ivan Perisic’s opener.“We had so many chances to kill off the game and didn’t take them,” said Spalletti, whose side also crashed out of the Champions League this month.“Right at the end, this hole in the defence opened up and Pellissier took full advantage. It’s not a physical issue of slowing down towards the end, it’s purely a psychological one.”Unhappy Higuain may be on the moveAC Milan forward Gonzalo Higuain is frustrated by his two-month goal drought. © AFP / Miguel MEDINASpeculation that Gonzalo Higuain could make a January move were fuelled after coach AC Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso said the Argentine forward was growing increasingly frustrated.“No striker is happy when he does not score, but it’s also hard for the whole team,” said Gattuso, whose side have won just one of their last six league games.There have been reports Higuain could be exchanged with Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata.“The winter market? It’s a question that must be asked of management. Higuain is going through a difficult moment, like the team and as long as he is here he remains an important player to be exploited to the full,” Gattuso added.Higuain scored 16 goals last season for Juventus before joining Milan on loan. The 31-year-old has scored five this term, but none since October 28.Lucky 13: Piatek tops goal chartGoal king: Genoa’s Polish forward Krzysztof Piatek has scored 13 goals in 17 games. © AFP / Vincenzo PINTOKrzysztof Piatek extended his lead at the top of the Serie A scoring charts when he scored his 13th goal of the season in Genoa’s 3-1 win over Atalanta, the Polish striker moving two ahead of Juve’s Cristiano Ronaldo after sealing the points two minutes from the end.City rival Sampdoria’s fellow on-fire striker Fabio Quagliarella scored his eighth goal in seven league games as the Genoa club beat Empoli 4-2, taking his tally for this season to 10.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more


first_imgWith the Evolve Menswear WINTER SUIT SALE in full swing, the experts at Evolve are sharing a few tips to make sure you get the most out of your suit.The ShoulderA well-fitted shoulder should lie flat. The seam on top of the shoulder should meet the sleeve of the suit right where your arm meets your shoulder. Wrinkles on the sleeve and on the top of the jacket means that the jacket is either too bit or too small.Trouser BreakThe “break” is the small wrinkle caused when the top of your shoe stops your trouser cuff from falling to its full length.The cuff should rest on top of your shoe, with the trouser falling a touch longer at the back than at the front but must be above the heel of the shoe. Jacket CollarYour jacket collar should rest against your shirt collar, which should in turn rest against the back of your neck.A tight collar will create bunching and folds just beneath it, and often wrinkles the shirt collar underneath it.Make sure you get the right advice when choosing your suit.
