Pakistan’s Ali a doubt for Sabina Park Test

aliA groin injury has put Pakistan seamer Hasan Ali in doubt for the opening Test of the three-match series against West Indies bowling off in Kingston on Friday.

The 23-year-old, who is yet to make his Test debut, picked up the injury during last weekend’s three-day four game against the WICB President’s XI and is yet to recover.

The Pakistan Cricket Board said the player would undergo rehabilitation in an attempt to return to full fitness quickly.

“On clinical assessment there is strain to one of his adductor muscles. He will undergo progressive rehabilitation to regain strength in the groin,’ the PCB statement said.

“Currently, we are confident that he will recover in time to be able to play in the Test series against West Indies. We will continue review his situation as he progresses through rehabilitation stages and give an update later when we are satisfied with his successful recovery or progress.”

Ali was expected to be a shoo-in for the first Test after impressive performances in the preceding limited overs series. He was especially outstanding in the opening one-dayer with a five-wicket haul.

The right-armer sent down 27 overs in the first innings of the tour game but did not bowl in the President’s XI second innings.

He has taken 29 wickets in 16 one-dayers and 10 wickets in seven Twenty20 Internationals. (CMC)


Allen, Walton fail to prevent Scorpions defeat

…Red Force beat Hurricanes by innings and 17 runs


Fabian Allen

Fabian Allen

Not even a stunning half-century from rookie Fabian Allen could prevent Jamaica Scorpions from a sudden collapse as they crashed to a 26-run defeat to Barbados Pride in their final match of the regional four-day championship here (Barbados) yesterday.

Starting the final day at Kensington Oval on 114 for one in pursuit of 341 for victory, Scorpions were dismissed for 314, in the second session after suffering a swift lower-order meltdown.

Chadwick Walton, unbeaten on 70 overnight, made 93, while Trevon Griffith, who started the day on 25, made 53.

Allen, in only his fourth first-class game, smashed an entertaining 60 off 35 deliveries and Test batsman Jermaine Blackwood chimed in with 44.

Scorpions reached lunch on 241 for five — with another 100 runs required in the final two sessions of the contest.

But Test left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican claimed five for 87 and veteran spinner Sulieman Benn, also a left-armer, picked up three for 90 as Scorpions lost their last five wickets for 73 runs.

The defeat for Scorpions was their fifth of the campaign and their fourth in five outings in the latter half of the competition, after leading at the mid-season break.

Starting the day in control of the run chase, Walton and Griffith extended their second-wicket stand to 137 before being separated.

Scorpions were increasing their stranglehold on the game when Grifftih swung Warrican to Ashley Nurse at mid-on at 162 for two. Just inside the hour mark, Walton perished with his fifth first-class century in sight, superbly taken at short leg by Kyle Corbin off off-spinner Kenroy Williams.

All told, Walton faced 181 deliveries in a shade over 3-1/4 hours at the crease and counted seven fours and four sixes.

Scenting a way back, Pride claimed Paul Palmer cheaply for five to a juggling catch at leg slip by Jonathan Carter off Warrican as Scorpions slumped to 176 for four.

Blackwood and the experienced Devon Thomas then came together to steady the innings in a 65-run, fifth wicket stand which seemed to carrying Scorpions safely to the break.

But Blackwood fell on the stroke of lunch, when he edged Benn to Nurse at slip at 241 for five, after he had struck three fours and six in a breezy 66-ball knock.

It all went haywire for Scorpions after lunch, with three wickets tumbling for five runs in the space of 20 balls to leave Scorpions on the verge of defeat at 251 for eight.

However, Allen brandished his bat to good effect, blasting three fours and six sixes to rally the innings and give Scorpions hope.

He put on a vital 44 for the ninth wicket with Captain Nikita Miller (4), which rattled Pride before Warrican had Miller caught at slip by Benn.

Allen’s last-ditch effort ended when he holed out to Kevin Stoute at cover off Warrican.

In another game in St Kitts capital of Basseterre, Trinidad and Tobago Red Force defeated Leeward Islands Hurricanes by an innings and 17 runs on the final day of their match.

Scores: RED FORCE 533 (Yannic Cariah 196, Tion Webster 109, Amir Jangoo 46, Ewart Nicholson 45, Akiel Cooper 41, Isaiah Rajah 40, Marlon Richards 24; Jason Campbell 3-100, Jeremiah Louis 2-90, Gavin Tonge 2-113); HURRICANES 299 (Chesney Hughes 71, Montcin Hodge 64, Akeem Saunders 27, Kacey Carty 53, Jacques Taylor 27; Imran Khan 5-66, Roshon Primus 2-62) and 237 (Montcin Hodge 96 not out, Kacey Carty 54, Akeem Saunders 41; Imran Khan 6-74, Bryan Charles 3-110).

National swimmers Leon Seaton and Lian Winter may have missed the podium after their events at the just concluded CARIFTA Championships which were held in the Bahamas from April 15 to 19 but have gained invaluable experience.

Seaton, had qualified for six events but only swam four where he made it to the finals on three occasions. In the 200M freestyle the 13 year-old entered the preliminary rounds with a time of 2:21.30s but during the final he clocked 2:17.49s which was only good enough for eighth place. He had a time of 2:17.09s to place seventh in the preliminary race.

In the 100M freestyle, he got fifth place, his highest placement in a final, in a time of 1:01.58s. He was expecting a much better showing in the final having stopped the clock at 1:00.39s during the preliminary rounds.

Likewise the 50M freestyle, a time of 27.46s gave him eighth place.  The other event he participated in was the 50M butterfly but only could not qualify for the finals with a time of 30.28s.

On the other hand, Winter got to three finals of the six events that she competed in, with her highest placement being eighth with a time of 32.79s in the 50M butterfly. The 100M Backstroke (1:22.57s) and 200M butterfly (3:00.98s) gave her 18th and 12th respectively.

The athletes returned home on Wednesday evening and are expect to the pool where they will endure rigorous training ahead of Goodwill Games that are set for August.


Need to capitalise on diplomatic ties – GTTA President

By Akeem Greene

GTTA President Godfrey Munroe

GTTA President Godfrey Munroe

President of the Guyana Table Tennis Association (GTTA) Godfrey Munroe is of the firm opinion that to help develop the sport, the relevant stakeholders must seek to capitalise on their diplomatic ties in an effort to give players the opportunity to garner more international exposure.

“It is using diplomatic relationships with key countries and we are working with Director of Sport [Christopher Jones] in this regard in getting good relations with China.” Munroe stated in an interview with Guyana Times International Sport.

His comments stems from Guyana hosting the 22nd Caribbean Region Table Tennis Federation (CRTTF) Cadet & Junior Championship at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall, where Dominican Republic were the most dominant team in both the under-15s and 18s categories, winning 12 gold, four silver and eight bronze medals while the host won three silver and seven bronze medals.

Munroe explained that  the Dominican Republic team have a  mentorship programme with China, whereby during the summer, two pre-cadet, cadet and senior players would go to China and train, while a  Chinese player/coach would visit the country to  help develop their structure, an ambition that the president endeavours for Guyana.

In addition to Guyana strengthening their bi-lateral ties, Munroe contended that  there is a need  for more support from the corporate sector, increase in  domestic tournaments, strengthening  their school programme and increasing  the amount of certified coaches.

Last year when the championships were held in the Dominican Republic, Guyana won four medals (1, gold, 1 silver & 2 bronze) with the five-member (Shemar Britton, Elishaba Johnson, Kyle Edghill and Nicholas Romain and Miguel) that they fielded.

Commenting on this year’s results, Munroe felt it allowed the association to get a gauge as to where the sport is currently.

Commendably, the competition was at a high standard but Munroe critically assessed the need the examination of the players’ mental strength and physical conditioning.


Australia name Pattinson, Henriques in Champions Trophy squad

James Faulkner

James Faulkner

Moises Henriques was chosen ahead of batsmen including Usman Khawaja, Pete Handscomb, George Bailey and Cameron White – plus the allrounder James Faulkner – in an Australian Champions Trophy squad that also features recalls for James Pattinson and John Hastings.

The omission of Faulkner from an Australian ICC event squad for the first time since 2011 marks a major change for the selectors, who have also determined that Henriques is worth his place for his batting alongside the likes of Marcus Stoinis and Hastings.

Khawaja and Handscomb were both part of the ODI team over the summer, and the latter’s performance with the bat suffered notably when asked to keep wicket in New Zealand in place of the injured Matthew Wade.

Chris Lynn, who injured his shoulder in the IPL this week, and Mitchell Starc have been chosen subject to fitness assessments, meaning Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Pattinson all appear in a pace-laden squad six months out from a home Ashes series.

Trevor Hohns, the chairman of the selection panel, said Australia’s medical staff would monitor the fitness of Lynn and Starc – who has been out of action since he flew home halfway through Australia’s Test series in India with a stress fracture in his right foot – and hoped both would be fit by the time the team departed on May 18.

Pattinson, who last played an ODI in September 2015, has been in roaring form since his return from a long-term injury, taking 24 wickets at 17.41 for Victoria in the Sheffield Shield and carrying that form into the County Championship for Nottinghamshire, taking 13 wickets in two matches at 12.92. His inclusion gives Australia a wealth of genuine pace options, with Hastings’ return a nod to early English summer conditions.

“Both James and John have made very good returns from injury and are bowling well for their respective teams in the English County competition as well as both contributing well with the bat,” Hohns said.

“When you also add Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins to the fast bowling artillery it becomes a very exciting proposition for Australian cricket.”

Henriques has been an irregular member of Australia’s ODI squad, playing only eight matches between his debut in 2009 and his last match in August 2016. He has scored 46 runs at 6.57 and taken six wickets with his medium-pace at 40.83.

Faulkner has greater ODI experience – 67 matches, with averages of 34.06 and 30.08 with bat and ball – and was Player of the Match in the final of the 2015 World Cup. Since then, while his left-arm seam has remained an effective weapon, his batting returns have fallen away, with his last 17 innings yielding a high score of 36 and an average of 17.40.

It is also possible that a lack of recent match practice has gone against Faulkner, who has not featured in a competitive game since playing for Tasmania against Queensland in the Sheffield Shield in early March. He is yet to play a match for his IPL team, Gujarat Lions, this season. Henriques, on the other hand, has featured in all but one of Sunrisers Hyderabad’s six matches, scoring 138 runs at an average of 46.00 and a strike rate of 127.77, and taking one wicket in 10 overs.

“Moises finished off the domestic season very well and has had a great start in the Indian Premier League,” Hohns said. “We believe Moises’ batting has improved significantly in the past six months and he will provide us with a strong option should he be selected.

“James has been a consistent performer for the one-day squad for several years, however with players such as Pattinson, Cummins and Hastings coming back to full fitness and the emergence of Marcus Stoinis, James was squeezed out of the squad and an unlucky omission.”

Stoinis and Hastings are the two other seam-bowling allrounders in Australia’s squad, with Glenn Maxwell and Travis Head providing part-time offspin back-up to Adam Zampa’s legspin. (ESPNCricinfo)

YWCC proud of Hetymer’s Test selection

Shimron Hetmyer

Shimron Hetmyer

Twenty year old Shimron Hetmyer’s selection to the West Indies Test squad to take on Pakistan in the Caribbean is hailed as a victory for the Young Warriors Cricket Club (YWCC), according to the club’s former President Anil Beharry.

Hetmyer and fellow Guyanese Vishaul Singh was called to be a part of the 13-man squad which will be led by Jason Holder in the Q Mobile Cup Test Series starting on Friday at Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica. Hetmyer and Singh’s selection came after stunning performances against the Pakistanis recently while playing for the West Indies Cricket Board President’s XI.

The left-handed batsmen gained selection to the WICB President’s XI after consistent performances for the Guyana Jaguars in the ongoing Digicel Regional Four day Tournament and on the West Indies ‘A’ team’s recent tour to Sri Lanka.

Beharry, also former President of the Berbice Cricket Board, described Hetmyer as very humble and extends his congratulations to the young cricketer. Beharry assisted in mentoring Hetmyer while he played for the YWCC in Berbice.

“I am very elated and I must say congratulation to both of them….Shimron is extremely talented and a natural born cricketer and he will definitely move to the highest level and consistently perform,” he said.

He added that Hetmyer can earn a place in the Indian Premier League (IPL) since he believes that he is capable and ready to extend his boundaries.

“From the first time I saw Hetmyer, at age 6, he was taller than his age group, supremely talented than his age group and that is why we dragged him in to the club structure…at the age of 11 he made the Berbice Under 15 team, at the 14 he made the Under 17 team and at 16 he made both Berbice and Guyana’s Under 19 team,” Beharry reminisced.

He noted that Hetmyer scored his first century at the age of 16 while representing Berbice at the Inter-County games, where he had difficulties participating since there were issues with him leaving school and as a result he had to sneak out without anyone’s knowledge. He was later selected to as a member of the Guyana Under-19 squad and later led the team at the ICC Youth World Cup.

“I just spoke to the President of the Young Warriors Cricket Club, Rafeek Hasim, and he asked me to extend his congratulations to Shimron Hetmyer and Vishaul Singh on behalf of the club,” Beharry said.

The West Indies first Test 13-man squad also sees a return for Kittitian Kieran Powell while Marlon Samuels, Leon Johnson, Darren Bravo, Carlos Brathwaite and Jomel Warrican who were part of the recent Test side were overlooked. The full squad reads; Jason Holder (Captain), Devendra Bishoo, Jermaine Blackwood, Kraigg Brathwaite, Roston Chase, Miguel Cummins, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph.

The 22nd Caribbean Region Table Tennis Federation (CRTTF) Cadet & Junior Championship came to a close on Tuesday evening at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall and the local contingent had a commendable outing at the event where they managed to bag three silver and seven bronze medals.

The success story for Guyana would have to be girls’ under-18 player Priscilla Greaves who managed to secure the country’s lone individual medal via her bronze which she shared with Cuba’s Shelly Machado.

In the overall results of the championships, Dominican Republic were rampant in both the under-15s and u-18s categories, storming to a total tally of 12 gold medals, four silver medals and eight bronze medals. Barbados (1 gold;1 bronze), Trinidad and Tobago (1 silver; 1 bronze), Aruba (2 bronze) and Cuba (2 bronze) were the other countries that earned a spot on the podium.

The team success came for Guyana in the boys under-15 doubles via silver from the combination of Jamal Nicolas and Terrance Rausche while teammates Tyriq Saunders and Isiah Layne had to share the third spot with Dominican Republic’s Steff Gutierrez and Ronaldo Tejada; Barbados pair of Ramon Maxwell and Rashon Goddard came first.

In the female section, Nevah Clarkston/Abigail Martin had to share third place with Selanas Jackman and Thuraia Thomas.

In the mixed doubles, Kaysan Ninvalle and Martin copped third along with Niran Bissu and Thomas; overall the girls team finished in second place while the boys’ A-team got third.

In the under-18s section, both the boys and the girls finished in fourth position, while Greaves and Jamaail Homer won silver in the doubles.

The other countries to participate in the five-day event were St. Lucia, Suriname and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.


Biggest Party in Sport returns to USA

cplFour Caribbean Premier League games will be played in the USA this year, as Florida’s Central Broward Regional Park has been approved by the ICC to host the T20 league’s matches. The stadium in Lauderhill, which remains the USA’s only ground to have ODI and T20I certification by the ICC, will host two matches fewer than last year’s tally of six.

CPL officials announced the development after receiving permission from the ICC – who is the approving authority while USACA remains suspended – to host the event in Lauderhill. The 2017 edition of the tournament will be held from August 4 to September 10.

A source at the Central Broward Regional Park has told ESPNcricinfo that the CPL has reserved Saturday, August 5, and Sunday, August 6, to play two double-headers beginning at 10am and 2pm each day. However, after the Thursday and Friday matches in 2016 struggled to break 50% capacity, with 10,000 tickets allowed for each game, there are no matches scheduled for weekdays this time around.

In contrast, the two weekend double-headers that followed on July 30 and 31 were played in front of virtual sellout crowds as an overwhelming number of out of town fans came to Lauderhill, particularly from New York and Toronto. The stadium source also told ESPNcricinfo that only four CPL teams will be coming to Florida this summer, rather than all six as was the case last year. It is as yet unknown which two teams will skip the USA leg.

The time slots for the Saturday and Sunday double-headers have also been pushed forward by two hours – the weekend matches in 2016 began at 12pm and 4pm local time – ostensibly in an effort to better capitalise on TV audiences in the Asian subcontinent where the first game would air at 7.30 pm in India and 7pm in Pakistan. This would be similar to the 10am start that the India-West Indies T20I series in Lauderhill followed.

Earlier, ESPNcricinfo had reported that CPL officials had asked Broward County Parks for two sets of week-long time frames to be blocked off in August for possible use for the tournament. The matches in 2016, played in July, were the first revenue-generating cricket to come to the ground in four years and increased interest in the India-West Indies T20I match in the following month.

Hero CPL 2017 launches with eye-catching Draft

cplThe fifth instalment of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) launched in spectacular fashion in Barbados on Friday morning as the Player Draft concluded with some eye-catching movement across all six franchises.

The great Sir Garfield Sobers joined the assembled guests, dignitaries, sponsors and international media to help launch the biggest party in sport.

This year each squad’s Player budget is $750,000 (USD). In addition to an unlimited group of retained players, once more there is a guaranteed roster spot for a Young West Indies emerging player as well as a representative from the ICC Americas, which ties in with one of the Hero CPL’s mandates of providing opportunities for young players across the Caribbean and north America.

CPLThough each team was permitted to retain the core of their squad this year, it still allowed for some eye-catching transfers.

Amongst some of the notable acquisitions are that of Australian all-rounder Ben Cutting who has been recruited by St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots, while West Indies ICC World T20 winner Marlon Samuels has joined the St. Lucia Stars. Samuels was not the only high profile Caribbean capture, with the Jamaica Tallawahs signing up batsman Lendl Simmons. Chadwick Walton has made the move, meanwhile, to Guyana Amazon Warriors and looks set to be a strong addition to their batting line-up.

cpl1For the first time ever, there will be an Afghanistan presence in the Hero CPL, with Mohammad Nabi (St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots) and Rashid Khan (Guyana Amazon Warriors) being snapped up. Barbados Tridents have also supplemented their bowling attack with the signing of Pakistan’s WahabRiaz.

In addition to the high-profile acquisition of New Zealand batsman Kane Williamson, coupled with the return of Dwayne Smith following his transfer from Guyana Amazon Warriors, the Tridents have retained Pakistan’s Shaoib Malik and South African all-rounder Wayne Parnell as they bid to win the coveted title they last won in 2014. Kieron Pollard will lead an exciting team which includes wicket-keeper/batsman Nicholas Pooran, who impressed following his comeback from a long injury lay-off joined the likes of Ravi Rampaul and emerging West Indies player Shamar Springer for the forthcoming campaign.

cpl4Guyana Amazon Warriors have been one of the most consistent sides since the tournament’s inception in 2013 and that is reflected in the retention of a number of stalwarts including Black Caps opener Martin Guptill, in-form Australian batsman Chris Lynn and Pakistan’s towering left-armerSohailTanvir who was one of the most consistent performers in 2016 with bat and ball. In addition, the squad will include West Indies duo RayadEmrit and Jason Mohammed, as well as exciting batsman ShimronHetmyer who led the West Indies to the Under-19 ICC Cricket World Cup title last year.

It will be a case of opportunity knocking for reigning champions, the Jamaica Tallawahs, who will be aiming for their third Hero CPL title. Rovman Powell was a standout player last year and the exuberance of youth will be balanced by a spine of a hat-trick of Asian talent in Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara, Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and Pakistan’s ImadWasim who have all been retained. USA international bowler Timroy Allen has also been retained as the ICC Americas representative.

cpl1St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots completed one of the most eye-catching transfers in the close season by acquiring the services of two-time champion Chris Gayle, and the powerful left-hander will join ‘marquee’ overseas signing Proteas all-rounder Chris Morris and his international colleague TabraizShamsi in the Patriots squad. A string of local Caribbean talent will include influential leg-spinner Samuel Badree, Jonathan Carter, Kieran Powell and promising fast bowler Alzarri Joseph for what will be ICC World T20 winning coach Phil Simmons’ first season in charge of the ambitious Patriots. Carlos Brathwaite has been retained as a West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) ‘Free’ Player, who are players either contracted to the WICB, or, likely to be selected by the WICB for international duty.

St. Lucia Stars will once again be led by charismatic leader Daren Sammy and they will welcome back South African batsman David Miller and Australian all-rounder Shane Watson to the fold. Recently re-named and under new ownership, the Stars will also welcome Sri Lanka’s LasithMalinga for a squad brimming with quality. Local favourite Johnson Charles was a strong performer at the top of the order last year and he will line up once more alongside the likes of Andre Fletcher, Shane Shillingford and Jerome Taylor.

2015 champions Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) have opted to retain all but three of last year’s squad and will once more by led by Dwayne ‘DJ’ Bravo. TKR will look to the guile of Sunil Narine while Darren Bravo will firm up a batting line-up which includes ‘marquee’ player Brendon McCullum, who will be joined again by fellow Black Cap Colin Munro. South Africa’s HashimAmla also returns to the panel who will be coached by Australian Simon Katich.
