Windies Women eager to prove ODI strength – Cooper

first_imgPORT 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.last_img read more

Mexican police mount big hunt for kidnapped footballer

first_img Authorities gave no further details about the kidnapping or its motive. Former teammates on Mexico’s national team went on social networks to offer their support for his welfare. “A shame what happened,” goalkeeper Jesus Corona said on Twitter. “My prayers are with him and his family at this difficult time.” Similar comments came in tweets by goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, defenders Diego Reyes and Miguel Layun and strikers Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez and Oribe Peralta, all of whom are in the United States for the Copa America competition. DIFFICULT TIME CIUDAD VICTORIA, Mexico (AP) : Federal and state forces mounted an operation yesterday to find kidnapped Mexican football star Alan Pulido, who was abducted in the crime-plagued northern border state of Tamaulipas. The 25-year-old Pulido is a forward for Olympiacos of Greece and was part of Mexico’s 2014 World Cup team, though he wasn’t called up for the Copa America tournament that starts this coming week. “We have information that he was intercepted by armed persons and since then his whereabouts is unknown,” said state Attorney General Ismael Quintanilla. The Tamaulipas Coordination Group that includes federal and state security agents said on its Twitter account that it was searching for the player. Reporters in the city saw an unusual deployment of troops and police in the streets, while at least two police or military-style helicopters flew overhead. A state official earlier said Pulido was kidnapped early Sunday after leaving a party near his hometown of Ciudad Victoria, the capital of Tamaulipas, a state that has suffered battles between major drug gangs. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to discuss a case under investigation.last_img read more

Blake ready to take baton from Bolt

first_img “It is my position to take over, so I have to, and I am definitely confident I can do that,” confirmed the 27-year-old athlete. Blake is a training partner of eight-time-Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt. Blake, meanwhile, is already looking forward to represent Jamaica at the IAAF World Relays in The Bahamas in April. He notes that he is happy with changes to his technique, made by coach Glen Mills. “World Relays is definitely on. I love the Relays and I love the atmosphere … I love the relays and I am just looking to keep Jamaica on top,” he explained. “Give God thanks, the preparation has been coming on fine; coach Mills has changed up a lot in my training and I am feeling excellent,” continued Blake. While Blake refused to go into details about the things his coach changed in his technique, he says he is ready to run. “All I will say is that I am running more upright now and I am feeling good. I am feeling brand new,” he explained. Blake added that his leg feels rehabilitated after injuries: “I don’t even know I have legs; they are feeling fine, and as you can see, I am running well.” CONFIDENT IN SELF Yohan Blake, the 2011 World 100m champion, remains happy with his pre-season progress so far, noting confidence in his ability to successfully replace Usain Bolt as Jamaica’s leading male sprinter. The Racers Track Club athlete anchored his team to a comfortable world-leading 38.59 seconds to win the men’s 4x100m relay at last Saturdays’ 41st staging of the Puma Gibson McCook Relays, at the National Stadium. Following Saturday’s win, he told The Gleaner that he is ready to be Racers’ leading athlete after Bolt’s expected retirement from the sport at the London World Championships, this year. “Confidence? My confidence is back; I am running and feeling healthy, so it is great. Yes, definitely, I am the man to take over when Usain will leave,” he responded in an interview. According to Blake, he is comfortable and ready to run.last_img read more

Unfamiliarity cost us – Holder

first_img STRUGGLE WITH BOWLERS “We struggled with their slow bowlers and it’s a situation where we need to counteract their slow bowlers in the middle. Those were the guys who really put the strangle on us up front.” Holder ruled out the pitch being a factor in the poor batting display. The surface had been under a matting cover for the last three days during the playing of a Regional Four-Day match between Barbados Pride and Guyana Jaguars. “I felt that the pitch was slow and it was a little bit more difficult to hit on,” he said. “It broke up a little earlier than I thought it would, but bearing that in mind, we just needed to find ways to knock some balls back down the pitch. It was a good enough pitch for us to get 150, at least. Definitely think if we had 150 on the board it would’ve been a much better game. “It’s clear we didn’t bat well. We started off with a runout, which gave them momentum. It was a very good piece of fielding, but we never really recovered from there. It was a situation in the middle where we had to consolidate, build a partnership.” The remaining three T20Is in the series will be played Thursday, Saturday and next Sunday at Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad. BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC): Jason Holder said he expects West Indies to bounce back from defeat now that they have a better idea of the Pakistan side. The lanky all-rounder felt that unfamiliarity with a number of Pakistani players, especially debutant leg-spinner Shadab Khan, was principally the reason for the Windies’ six-wicket loss in the first Twenty20 international on Sunday at the Kensington Oval. Khan had a memorable spell of three wickets for seven runs from his allotted four overs, as the home team was restricted to 118 for eight before the visitors successfully chased down the target with 17 balls remaining. “We need to just sit down and work out our plans against all their bowlers,” said Holder. “Obviously, we are coming up against some guys who we have never played. In this situation, we need to find how best to play them given the conditions that we have.last_img read more

Cavaliers trade Irving to Celtics for Thomas — source

first_imgSince Irving made his stunning request, the defending Eastern Conference champions have been looking for a trade partner. They found the perfect one in the Celtics, who will now build around Irving and newly signed free agent Gordon Hayward.Irving’s first regular-season game for Boston will be against Cleveland as the Cavs will host the Celtics on Oct. 17 — a date being circled by fans already.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?
