ICC urged to meet with CARICOM

first_imgRenowned regional academic Professor Hilary Beckles said it was critical cricket’s world governing body, the International Cricket Council (ICC), heeded the call of the Caribbean community, in helping to solve the governance crisis in West Indies cricket.The Vice-Chancellor of the University of the West Indies (UWI), said the Caribbean side had been a key player in the expansion of the global game, providing a “new performance culture” while also generating “a box office bonanza for five solid decades.”  CARICOM requested a meeting with the ICC during the Commonwealth Heads of Government in London this week to discuss the governance crisis only to be told their representatives would be busy preparing for their quarterly board meetings in Kolkata from April 21-26.“CARICOM has been respectful of the International Cricket Council in its request for a discourse,” said Sir Hilary, who has written several books on West Indies cricket.“The ICC knows, and should be respectful of the fact, that West Indian cricketers rescued the dying Test game after the Second World War, and gave it a new performance culture that captured the global imagination.“In the process, the celebrated West Indian brand was born and has generated a box office bonanza for five solid decades.”Following the two-day Intersessional in Haiti last February, CARICOM adopted legal advice which confirmed it could challenge CWI’s right, as a private entity, to manage the public good of West Indies cricket.Labelling regional governments as a “major financial stakeholder”, Sir Hilary underscored the importance of ICC approaching CARICOM’s requests with a level of “gratitude and generosity.”“The ICC sits on a mountain that is filled with West Indian gold. It should therefore be mindful of the need to hear the West Indian case from the people and their governments,” argued Sir Hilary, a former director of Cricket West Indies.“CARICOM is not asking for any special dispensation. It is insisting that as the major financial stakeholder, there has to be internal restructuring using best practices that have long been upheld by the ICC itself,” Sir Hilary said.last_img read more

Kent clinch County crown with Quinney the last-gasp hero

first_img BEN QUINNEY was mobbed by jubilant team-mates after holing the putt which earned Kent a dramatic County Finals victory – and later admitted he didn’t know his team’s destiny lay solely in his hands.Despite heavy downpours over two days, rain delays and a revised format for the Men’s County Championship, nothing could put a dampener on an amazing outcome for Quinney, captain Danny Curtis and his team as they won the prestigious title for only the second time in their history.Not since 1978 had Kent laid claim to the honour of being English County champions – but that all changed in an amazing finale to two days of outstanding golf at Huddersfield GC.The final scoreboard showed that with a halved match in the morning singles against Somerset and then a 4-3 win over Northumberland in the afternoon matches, Kent topped the leaderboard with five points from their three games.But the bald facts and figures couldn’t fully convey the nerve-jangling chain of events that led Kent to their moment of glory.With Northumberland – morning winners over Nottinghamshire – only needing to half the afternoon match with Kent to earn their first title since 1965 – the odds were in their favour. Kent knew a win would see them emerge victorious.Kent turned the screw when Tom Sherreard, Liam Burns and Joshua Bristow returned three points in the first three games completed.Sherreard, in particular,  was on fire with five birdies in a row to close out his match against Andrew Minnikin.However, Northumberland’s Alex Dixon, Matty Lamb and Gary Donnison hit back with three points of their own to leave the outcome down to the final match.With two holes to play, Quinney was one up. But a three-putt on the 1st hole (his 17th after a shotgun start) opened the door for Heads.A large crowd gathered round the 2nd green to witness the finale. Heads came agonisingly close with a 25-footer to guarantee a halved match and overall victory for Northumberland.Quinney then kept his cool to read the left to right break on the slippery, ten-foot birdie putt and find the middle of the cup.After being swamped by team-mates Quinney emerged from the scrum and said with a wide smile: “I knew it was important, but I didn’t know it was to win the championship.“Even so, that’s the most pressure I’ve ever been under because you just want to win a point for the team and Danny.“I was confident over the putt. I’ve had it before and knew how it would break. “It’s been such a long time since the county has won this that I think we’ll enjoy the party.”Captain Curtis was struggling to put it into words, but added: “You couldn’t write it. The last putt of the last match, but these boys deserve it.“Benn Barham has been brilliant as coach and our team of volunteers have played their part.“We’ve waited a long time to get back to his position and I’m thrilled for everyone associated with our county.”The finale was teed up after a morning of rain-delayed action saw Kent slip up and Northumberland move into pole position.Northumberland claimed a 5-2 victory over Nottinghamshire with Mark Wharton, Dixon, Donnison, Lamb and Minnikin posting points.A soggy start to the day was an inconvenience for players, officials and spectators alike. A two-and-a-half hour rain delay from 8.30am forced everyone indoors until the weather picked up and the heroic greenstaff got to work on draining the putting surfaces.On resumption of play shortly after 11am Kent ran into a Somerset side intent on improving from their narrow first day loss against Northumberland and the match finished tied on 3.5-3.5 points apiece.Burns, Jensen Hull and Sherreard all notched convincing wins for Kent while Tom Plumb, Taylor Stote and Sam Fernley did likewise for Somerset.Nerves were jangling as Jacob Kelso and Will Poole came down their last hole – but neither man could eke out a birdie to sneak the win and honours were even.That allowed Northumberland to head into the final round of games knowing a draw against Kent would be good enough to claim the trophy.With Nottinghamshire and Somerset playing for pride in the afternoon and the former claiming a 4-3 win it was left to Kent to enjoy the prize-giving ceremony and prepare for a long night of celebrations.The manner of defeat was cruel on Northumberland and their captain David Gilroy and especially Wharton, Dixon and Donnison who won all three of their games.However, all teams were quick to offer congratulations to Kent who were worthy and sporting winners.For detailed results from both days play at the Men’s County Finals please click here Tags: Kent, Men’s County Finals, Northumberland, Nottinghamshire, Somerset Photograph credit: Leaderboardcenter_img 28 Sep 2019 Kent clinch County crown with Quinney the last-gasp hero last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Klopp fumes over penalty as Liverpool fall in Napoli – againby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveJurgen Klopp was unhappy with the refereeing in Liverpool’s 2-0 loss to Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday night.The game looked destined from a draw until Andy Robertson fouled Jose Callejon in the box after 81 minutes. Replays showed Callejon initiated the contact to Robertson’s outstretched leg, but nonetheless, Lorenzo Insigne stepped dutifully to fire home Napoli’s first of the game.An uncharacteristic error from Virgil van Dijk then allowed Fernando Llorente to score his first goal for Napoli to double their advantage. Speaking after the game, Klopp was adamant Robertson should not have been penalised for the challenge with Callejon.He told BT Sport: “It should hurt because there were opportunities for us. It was an open game with a lot of counter attacks, but we didn’t finish them off and that is a problem.”In the second half it was a wild game, they were running and we were running.”I don’t think it’s a penalty. What can I say, for me, it is clear and obvious no penalty. He jumps before any contact, we can’t change that.”We played a lot of good football but didn’t finish it off. We controlled moments but had not enough chances in the end. We made decisions that were not right and have to accept the result. It was very often the final ball that was not right.”Napoli defeated Liverpool 1-0 at the San Paolo Stadium in the Champions League group stages last season. last_img read more

Proposals being made at NAFTA table wont send Canada away Trudeau

first_imgMEXICO CITY – The leaders of Canada and Mexico said Thursday they’re not walking away from NAFTA talks in the wake of the latest aggressive proposal from the U.S.Both Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said the proposal — a sunset clause on any new North American Free Trade Agreement — remains just that, an idea.“We will continue to take very seriously the work we do and we will not be walking away from the table based on proposals put forward,” Trudeau said at a joint news conference with Pena Nieto in Mexico City’s stately National Palace late Thursday evening.“We will discuss those proposals, we will counter those proposals and we will take seriously these negotiations.”Negotiations for a revamped NAFTA are now in their fourth round and the U.S. sunset clause idea is the latest in a series of moves that have frustrated Canadian and Mexican negotiators. More challenges lie ahead — rules for auto parts could come as early as Friday. An original suggestion from the U.S. that American and regional content levels be beefed up has already drawn condemnation.Trudeau and Pena Nieto talked with their aides and then their foreign affairs and trade teams for close to two hours Thursday afternoon. Trudeau’s visit is his first official trip to Mexico and follows Pena Nieto’s trip to Canada in June 2016.While the two sides were discussing a range of issues, the ongoing talks to rework NAFTA were a large part of the discussion.Pena Nieto suggested that while observers have made predictions that certain proposals could tank the talks, that’s only speculation.“I would not pay much attention to any statements other than that which happens (at) the negotiation tables,” he said, according to an English translation of his remarks.Pena Nieto indicated he was paying attention to a suggestion from U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday that should NAFTA talks fail, bilateral deals could be negotiated instead.Afterwards, Trudeau didn’t rule out the notion, and Pena Nieto said he did discuss it with the prime minister Thursday.But he said he also heard Trump say that the three countries could find a creative way to negotiate a new trilateral pact.“I think that Canada and Mexico share the idea that the NAFTA agreement is a good mechanism, it’s not the only one but it’s a good mechanism to potentialize the development of the North American region and to turn it into the most competitive one.”Efforts by Canada and Mexico to deepen their own bilateral connections, however, were on full display Thursday.In the room during the news conference were dozens of Mexican firefighters who assisted in combating wildfires in B.C., while prior to their meeting, Pena Nieto took Trudeau past a photo display of Canadian relief efforts in the wake of devastating earthquakes in Mexico last month.Trudeau had stopped by a Red Cross aid distribution centre earlier Thursday as part of his government’s approach of engaging in more public diplomacy events to encourage foreign relations.But the formal side is equally important. Trudeau will address the Mexican Senate on Friday, one of only a handful of foreign leaders to have ever done so.last_img read more

It may be harder to find the perfect Christmas tree

first_imgMONTPELIER, Vt. — There’s a tight supply of tannenbaums this holiday season.That means some shoppers will be paying more or searching longer for that perfect Christmas tree. But industry officials say there’s no cause for panic buying.The tight market is rooted in an oversupply followed by the Great Recession that caused many growers to leave the business. Now the supply is tight.Tim O’Connor from the National Christmas Tree Association says most people will find what they want, but prices could be a bit higher than last year’s average retail price of about $75.All told, the association says U.S. consumers are expected to buy about 27 million live trees. That’s roughly the same as the last two years.Lisa Rathke, The Associated Presslast_img read more
