‘We didn’t take anything for granted’ – Jamaica’s Frew credits teamwork for historic Windies’ U-19 victory

‘We didn’t take anything for granted’ – Jamaica’s Frew credits teamwork for historic Windies’ U-19 victory

first_imgOutgoing Jamaica Under-19 captain, Michael Frew, a member of the victorious West Indies Under-19 team, has listed teamwork as the main reason their historic ICC Under-19 World Cup triumph. The West Indies, led by Man-of-the-Match Leeward Islands batsman, Keacy Carty, who scored an unbeaten 52, defeated title-favourites and previously unbeaten India by five wickets in the final yesterday in Bangladesh. “It was definitely, team performance,” off-spinning all-rounder Frew told The Gleaner.  “It wasn’t one person who really carried the team. Everyone chipped in at the right time. “Our opening bowlers, again, gave us a good start with the new ball and the bowlers in the middle came and finished the job. “In the batting we knew we had a lot of balls and the guys batted patiently,” he added. The triumph, which was wrapped up with three balls to spare, after the West Indies scored 146 for five in response to 145 made by the Indians, represented the first time the regional outfit was lifting the title. The previous best performance was a second place finish in 2004, when the West Indies, led then by current wicketkeeper, Denesh Ramdin, lost to Pakistan in the final, also in Bangladesh. Fast bowlers – the impressive Alzzarri Joseph of the Leewards and, Ryan John of the Windward Islands – spearheaded the West Indies bowling performance with three for 39 and John, three for 38, respectively. “Leading up to the final we were winning matches so our confidence was at a pretty good level,” expressed Frew. “However, we knew that India was a good team and didn’t take anything for granted.” Guided by captain Shimron Hetmyer of Guyana, the West Indies, after going down to England in their opening match, rebounded to defeat Fiji and Zimbabwe in their subsequent group fixtures. They then defeated long-standing nemesis, Pakistan, who also knocked them out of the tournament in 2014, in the quarter-finals, before getting the better of Bangladesh in the semi-finals. One of three Jamaicans in the West Indies squad along with fast bowler Odean Smith and batsman Shahid Crooks, Frew, also said he hoped the win would make the people of the Caribbean happy. “I hope it has made them proud,” he said. “We wanted to do this for the people of the Caribbean, including our family and our friends.”last_img read more

2005 ASICS NTL- SENIORS DAY THREE SUMMARY

2005 ASICS NTL- SENIORS DAY THREE SUMMARY

first_imgWell, day three at the 2005 Asics Seniors NTL has been long but good. We kicked off at 7:30am Friday morning and didn’t finish games until 10:00pm Friday night. After Thursday’s storm action, we had drizzle all day, had to move games from the main arena to preserve the muddy surface and give it time to dry out before finals and got to watch a beautiful sunset as the lights came on and we had some great night Touch. The day was action packed, with special mention going to retiring Australian Touch CEO Bill Ker (or Sonny Bill Ker as he’s now known). Bill pulled on the boots and slipped into the ACT uniform to help out a side hit hard by injuries. It was his first appearance playing at the NTL, having always been involved as an administrator. What a way to go out Sonny Bill! (Pictured here.) Summary of day three: MENS 30’s: After the final round of competition in the Mens 30’s, the Mets and Sharks finished on top of the ladder, with no losses but a draw against each other. With the Scorpions no more than one or two touchdowns behind those two sides, the finals are sure to be hot. In Saturday’s semis the Mets will face the Scorpions and the Sharks will meet the Mets, guaranteeing a certain NSW v Qld style grand final. The Cyclones are the only side yet to win a match in the Mens 30’s and will be looking to topple the Crusaders in their 8th-9th play off and finish with a match against the Warriors for 7th place. MENS 35’s: In the Mens 35’s the Sydney Scorpions and Mets are looking very tough to go past, although the Sharks and the Cyclones round up the top four and are lurking as the outside chances. The Sharks have been slightly inconsistent though, their 3-2 win over the Mets followed by a 7-6 loss to the Hornets. Other quality matches on day three of the Mens 35’s included the Rustlers 4-3 win over the Warriors and the Mets 4-2 win over the Cyclones. MENS 40’s: The Mens 40’s had a massive day of competition, not finishing until 10pm due to the cancellation of their matches the previous day. It looks like it will be an action packed competition, as the Scorpions, Sharks and Suns are all tightly packed at the top of the ladder and the Northern Eagles not far behind. The Northern Eagles are defending Champions, so they can be expected to put in a solid performance come semi finals times. The Scorpions will face the Eagles and the Sharks will play the Suns. MENS 45’s: The Cobras have been the outstanding side of the Mens 45’s, only allowing 7 touchdowns to be scored against them, with three of those being from their match against the ACT (led by the mighty Sonny Bill Ker, ATA retiring CEO who stepped in to make a final appearance for the last few matches, as the ACT side has been decimated by injuries.) The Mets, Scorpions and Eagles look like they could be the only sides who will challenge the defense of the Cobras, who are still looking as fresh as they did on day one amazingly. The Cobras will face the Eagles and the Mets will face the Scorpions in the Mens 45’s semi finals. MENS 50’s: The Mens 50’s were among the last to leave Coffs Stadium Friday night, with their matches finishing after 9pm. It was certainly a tough night for the Mens 50’s, with the weather and wind being cold, although the atmosphere under lights is always something special. Being the end of a very long day and quite late at night, amny of their final round of pool matches were low scoring affairs, the Eagles winning 6-0 over the Rustlers, Cyclones 4-0 over the Suns, Sharks 4-0 over the Cobras and Mets 2-1 over Hornets. The Mets will face the Sharks in the first semi final, while the Hornets will meet the local Northern Eagles. WOMENS 30’s: The Crusaders and Scorpions look the side to beat in this division, their 3-3 draw earlier in the competition leaving them on top of the ladder together. Their strong record puts them straight through to the semi finals, with the other sides forced into qualifying finals for the final two spots in the semis Friday night. The qualifying system looks complicated, but basically the remaining sides, the Suns, Mets, Cobras and Rustlers are fighting for the two remaining spots in the Semi finals. WOMENS 35’s: The Womens 35’s competition may only have five teams but it is certainly tough. The Cyclones and Rustlers played off for the final spot in the final four, with the Cyclones, yet to win a match all tournament, defeating the Rustlers 1-0. They now go through to a semi final against the Hornets, while the Suns will face the Sharks. WOMENS 40’s: The Sydney Scorpions finished top of their pool with four wins and a draw, with the draw against the third placed Cyclones indicating the Eagles (finishing second,) the Scorpions and Cyclones all have more than just a fingertip on the title. The Scorpions will face the Cobras in the first semi final, while the Eagles play the Cyclones.last_img read more

That erased the old mark of 2:04.06 set by Missy Franklin at the 2012 London Olympics.“I’m in shock,” Smith said. “I really don’t believe it.”She lowered her own junior world record in the morning preliminaries, finishing in 2:06.01.Smith goes into Saturday’s final 3.22 seconds ahead of Masse.last_img read more

Real Madrid to announce £86m signing of Hazard after Chelseas Europa final

Real Madrid to announce £86m signing of Hazard after Chelseas Europa final

first_imgLondon: Real Madrid will wait until after Chelsea’s Europa League final clash against Arsenal to announce the signing of Eden Hazard, according to reports in France. The Belgian has one year remaining on his deal at Stamford Bridge and he confirmed on Sunday that he’d informed the club of his decision ‘weeks ago’. While Hazard did not specify what his decision was, it’s believed he’s told Chelsea that he wants the chance to complete a dream move to Madrid to play under Zinedine Zidane. Zidane wants Hazard in for the start of pre-season and Madrid wanted to announce the deal as soon as possible. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: RijijuHowever, Chelsea play Premier League rivals Arsenal in the final in Baku in a fortnight and L’Equipe claim Real will do the Blues the courtesy of waiting until after the game to announce the signing. A fee of €100m — roughly £86m — is said to have been agreed several weeks ago, while Hazard is set to become one of the club’s highest earners. Chelsea signed Christian Pulisic in January for £58m as a replacement for Hazard and the club must deal with the exit of the Belgian during a two-window transfer ban issued by FIFA. Hazard joined the Blues in 2012 and won two league titles, one Europa League, one FA Cup and one League Cup during his seven years with the club. He was crowned PFA Player of the year in 2015 after an eye-catching season under Jose Mourinho.

Hazard has talked about it being “a dream” to one day play for Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane but Sarri said he did not know if the playmaker was set to leave swap London for Madrid. “I hope of course, like every fan of Chelsea, that he will remain with us,” he said. “But at the moment I don’t know.” “I know very well that Eden tried to do his best for seven seasons at Chelsea,” the Blues boss added. “He did very well, he has become one of the best two or three players in the world, but I think also that we have to respect him and his decision.” Sarri also cast doubt over his own position and could not say for sure if he will be at Stamford Bridge for a second season. “I think but I am not sure. I don’t know. I can say only the club asked me to get into the Champions League and we reached the target — the Champions League.” “As you know very well, I love English football.”last_img read more
