Batsmen shine at trial

Batsmen shine at trial

first_img Left-arm spinner Patrick Harty with four for 81 was the top wicket taker yesterday while there were two wickets each for fast bowlers Marquino Mindley and Nicholson Gordon. “The game is a competitive one, and interestingly poised, and is the sort of encounter we wanted at this stage of our preparation,” said Jamaica coach, Junior Bennett. “The only regret is that despite so many fifties, none of the batsmen in either has gone on to triple figures. “However, there is a day to go and let’s hope that will happen.” Half-centuries from Andre McCarthy, young Guyanese opener Trevon Griffith and Brandon King highlighted yesterday’s third and penultimate day of Jamaica Scorpions’ sixth and final trial match at Sabina Park. McCarthy who scored an undefeated 163 in the fifth trial fixture, topscored with 63 while Griffith and King hit 57 apiece, as Paul Palmer’s XI, batting a second time, were dismissed for 317. This is to go with their equally competitive first innings total of 302.  Also getting among the runs were wicketkeeper Chadwick Walton 36, and, all-rounder, David Bernard Jr, 26. Campbell’s XI, set a victory target of 309, were six without loss when stumps were drawn.last_img read more

Cybermen in Space in Doctor Who Comic Crossover Event

Cybermen in Space in Doctor Who Comic Crossover Event

first_imgStay on target Titan’s “epic” comic crossover event continues with the Tenth Doctor and some unexpected (and surprisingly nimble) guests.Part three of “The Lost Dimension” picks up right where “Alpha” left off: with a hologram of the Third Doctor screaming in pain as a mysterious white energy destroys him.The image vanishes as suddenly as it appeared, leaving the Tenth Doctor to work out what was attacking his former self.“Very occasionally, I’ll see the Doctor get scared. Doesn’t happen very often, but when it does, you know things are serious,” companion Gabby Gonzalez writes in her disappearing diary. “He’s trying not to let on how concerned he is. Something big is happening all right.”Something big that even the titular Time Lord can’t decipher.Before he can even wrap his clever mind around the situation, the team must make an emergency landing on Poseidon Station, a power refining facility in emergency lockdown.While the Doctor deftly fixes the ship’s problem, another one quickly arises: Poseidon Station is being invaded by Cybermen!“The Lost Dimension: Part Three” (via Titan Comics)The army of emotionless humanoids, however, isn’t acting (or, frankly, moving) logically; their mode of attack is chaotic, disorganized—very un-Cyberman-y. Is this a new cyber-virus, or something more sinister?(In Doctor Who, it’s always the latter.)Writer Nick Abadzis managed to sneak in a wee history lesson: Director Jessop initiates emergency code Dunkirk—a reference, for those who haven’t seen Christopher Nolan’s summer blockbuster, to the famous evacuation of Allied soldiers from France during World War II.But as the rest of the crew runs for their lives, Cindy and Akiyama are trapped in the station, surrounded by Cybermen, with only holographic communication with the Doctor and Gabby to guide them to safety.The fast-paced comic ends on a serious cliffhanger, leaving readers anxious for more “Lost Dimension” stories: Eleventh and Twelfth Doctor chapters are coming soon, alongside two special issues and the “Omega” grand finale (on sale Oct. 11).My biggest gripe with “The Lost Dimension: Part Three”—aside from having to re-read Abadzis’s convoluted space jargon at least three times—is the artists’ racial stereotyping.Companion Cindy Wu has appeared in multiple comic stories, none of which depict her with the cliched slits-for-eyes reminiscent of 20th-century cartoons. So why, suddenly, have illustrators Mariano Laclaustra and Carlos Cabrera chosen such an offensively outdated image?Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. ‘Marvels’ Expands Marvel’s Podcast UniverseDamon Lindelof Starts Beef With Alan Moore Ahead of HBO’s ‘Watch… last_img read more
