PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, (CMC):West Indies Women batsman Britney Cooper says the Twenty20 World Cup champions are out to prove they can also be a force to be reckoned with in the 50-overs format.The 26-year-old, who played a key role in the women’s capture of the T20 title in India last month, said the Caribbean side had already turned their attention to next year’s 50-overs World Cup scheduled for England.”A lot of people feel the West Indies team only knows how to play T20 cricket but it is much more than that,” Cooper said.”I believe we have an opportunity to show all the world that we’re not only a World Cup T20 side but we can also play one-day [cricket]. We’re hoping when we go to England next year that we can bring home another championship back to the Caribbean.”The triumph in the T20 World Cup was their first ever in that format but the women have already strung together some impressive performances in past 50-overs World Cup.In fact, they were good enough to reach the final of the last tournament in India three years ago, when they lost to Australia Women by 114 runs.improving battingCooper, whose career-best unbeaten half-century against New Zealand Women in the semi-final put the Windies Women in the T20 World Cup final, says she was focused on improving her batting in order to strengthen the ODI unit.”I don’t see myself as a T20 player. I really want to find myself higher up the order in the one-day team,” she said.”I bat at five, six sometimes so one day I hope that I can be batting at number three for four, or even opening the batting for West Indies.”Cooper made her debut in 2009 and has since played 31 ODIs and 46 T20s.The Women’s Cricket World Cup is scheduled for June 26 to July 23 next year.

Letterkenny I.T. secured a place in the quarter finals of the CFAI Cup today with a win over Cork Institute of Technology.The team, with manager Niall McGonagle and Tommy Harkin, travelled to Cork on Tuesday for the meeting of two of the best regarded teams in the competition.A goal on 14 minutes from Luke O’ Farrell put Letterkenny on top in what was for the most part a balanced first half which kicked off at 12.00. Jordan Duffy was once again the supplier of a perfect cross which found O’ Farrell advancing with speed to meet the ball on the six yard line and finish with a goal that proved decisive in this clash.Attacking options were plentiful for Letterkenny with both Jordan Duffy and Anthony Oppiah providing good wing play and a midfield three of Ryan Bradley, Oisin Grant and Ryan Toland offering support to the attack at every opportunity.The team adopted a 4-3-3 formation from the kick off and sustained their energy right through the second half, where, it must be said, the opposition pressed hard in the hope of the equaliser. Good performances from O’ Farrell, Sean Black , the Letterkenny I.T. goalkeeper and Oisin Grant proved too much for the Cork I.T. men on this occasion.LYIT Team: S. Black, D. Ramsey, J. Logue, J.

Multinational food and nutrition company Nestle says it is investing about 67-million Swiss francs (more than R500-million) on expanding its operations in South Africa, the majority of which will go toward the construction of two new factories in Gauteng.

Bangladesh fans were not impressed with the umpiring decision that led to centurion Liton Das’s dismissal during the Asia Cup 2018 final at the Dubai International Stadium on Friday.Liton, who was batting on 121 off 116 balls, was given out stumped of the bowling off Kuldeep Yadav after a close decision. Liton’s dismissal left Bangladesh reeling at 188/6 from 41 overs. After Liton’s wicket, Bangladesh struggled to put on runs and folded for 222 from 48.4 overs.Kuldeep bowled a wrong ‘un around off and Das didn’t pick it and came forward to block. He was beaten past the outside edge and his back leg dragged out of the crease. Dhoni whipped the bails off in a jiffy and it was referred upstairs. The TV umpire took several looks at it from different angles. The foot seemed to be behind the line from one angle but from the stump cam it looked like the foot was on the line.Asia Cup 2018, India vs Bangladesh: Report | Highlights | PhotosBut, it was signaled out eventually.

India cricket team Ashwin is likely to be partnered by the left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who conceded 24 from his sole four-over spell in this match.Despite being kept in the field for 94 overs by an Essex side who eventually declared their first innings on 359 for eight, India sent down only 11 wicketless overs of spin. Ravindra Jadeja, who bowled two, appears the most likely spinner to miss out at Edgbaston.India also have a difficult call over their seamers, with Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav fighting for two places.Umesh was his team’s best bowler by some distance in this match, taking four for 35 from 18 overs. Yet Ishant and Shami are still considered favourites to make India’s XI at Edgbaston ahead of a bowler who has not played a Test outside the subcontinent in two years. … we have a small favour to ask.

Dhawan was expected to partner Murali Vijay at the top of the order for the start of the five-Test series at Edgbaston before he returned a pair in this drawn three-day encounter in Chelmsford. The Spin: sign up and get our weekly cricket email. Support The Guardian His place is now under threat after facing only four deliveries in preparation for the challenge of taking on Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad with the new ball in Birmingham. Dhawan is likely to be replaced at the top of the order by KL Rahul, who was expected to bat at No 3 in the first Test.That means a possible reprieve for Cheteshwar Pujara, who was expected to be dropped following a poor run of form that has seen him average only 14.33 in six County Championship matches for Yorkshire this summer. Pujara hardly made a compelling case for his inclusion in Chelmsford, scoring 23 on the final day after making one in the first innings.It leaves India with a selection headache at the top of their order. Yet they will have an equally tough decision over their bowling attack. In terms of spinners, Ravichandran Ashwin is assured of his place after overcoming the minor finger injury he sustained batting in the nets on Thursday. After sitting on the sidelines for the first two days, the off-spinner got through five overs on the final morning without any apparent trouble.

Napoli coach Ancelotti: We beat Liverpool with the long ball!by Carlos Volcanoa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveNapoli coach Carlo Ancelotti was delighted with his players for victory over Champions League opponents Liverpool.Dries Mertens converted a penalty and Fernando Llorente made the most of a Virgil van Dijk error at the Stadio San Paolo for a 2-0 result.“It’s always tough against Liverpool, from the first minute to the last. We had to sacrifice ourselves, but without losing our identity,” Ancelotti told Sky Sport Italia.“We tried a bit too hard to play it out from the back and lost some dangerous balls, while they were aggressive in their pressing.“The game was always in the balance, but I particularly appreciated the way we defended with the basics when it was still 0-0 and that’s what allowed us to have those late chances.“I want to see a team that believes in itself and its quality. I really liked the way we played when we weren’t in control. Llorente helped out, the players were tired and the first goal was from a long ball – which isn’t our usual approach, but it’s not an insult to do that sometimes. This team must know how to do everything.“We brought in important players who improve the quality level of the squad and have different characteristics to what we had before. I have to keep them motivated and that’s not easy, especially when UEFA still have this rule forcing you to keep a short bench and it’s painful sending players to the stands.”He added: “We felt confident on the second goal, it was near the end and we were a goal up. You can press high at times, not at others, it’s about maintaining your identity and also being able to do everything. I liked our quality, but also how we played ‘ugly’ when we needed to.“I asked Giovanni Di Lorenzo how many Champions League games he’d played before and he said none. Oh well, it wasn’t bad! The same goes for Alex Meret, that was his debut, as well.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say
