Dhanraj to advise Windies spinners

first_img IMPROVING SKILLS “We welcome Rajindra to the West Indies team group,” said WICB director of cricket, Jimmy Adams. “We’re delighted he has agreed to come and work with our players. He has a wealth of knowledge on the game and we know he will make a great contribution. “He will be spending time with our slow bowlers prior to both the ODIs in Guyana and the start of the Test series in Jamaica, as we look to improve and enhance their skills and grow in the game.” The 48-year-old Dhanraj was one of the leading bowlers in Regional 4-Day Tournament in the late 1980s and 1990s. He took 295 wickets in 78 first-class matches, and also played four Tests and six ODIs for the West Indies between 1994 and 1996. PROVIDENCE, Guyana (CMC): Rajindra Dhanraj has been hired for a brief period to advise the spin bowlers in the West Indies team. The West Indies Cricket Board announced yesterday that the former Trinidad & Tobago and West Indies leg-spinner will work with the team prior to the start of the upcoming three one-day internationals (ODI) against Pakistan in Guyana before he flies to Jamaica to mentor the slow bowlers ahead of the start of the three Tests later this month.last_img read more

Furious Matano demands AFC improvement

first_img0Shares0000AFC Leopards head coach watches as his players warm up before their CAF Confederation Cup tie against Fosa Juniors of Madagascar at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega on February 11, 2017. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 12- AFC Leopards head coach Robert Matano went ballistic after his charges produced a shockingly underwhelming performance against Malagasy side Fosa Juniors in their 1-1 CAF Confederations Cup preliminary round draw on Sunday.Matano, not one known to shy away from expressing his feelings and disappointments has now demanded improvement from his players, giving an indirect warning that those not ready to pull their socks will watch proceedings from the terraces. “The players didn’t measure up to expectation. We have been here for four days and the players only have themselves to blame. They didn’t play according to plan and the way I expected them to play,” Matano said after the match.He stretched in his disappointment into the dressing room after the final whistle, clearly stating to the players they let themselves down especially on an evening they played in their ‘traditional home-ground’.Matano was forced to make changes five minutes to the break pulling out Aziz Okaka and Henry Uche who were appalling in their performance and Matano was irate that their under-performance caused him to change his plans.AFC Leopards players walk into the pitch for their CAF Confederation Cup tie against Fosa Juniors of Madagascar at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega on February 11, 2017. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“We were sloppy from the start and we conceded a very easy goal because of a defensive lapse. Our defence was scattered, our midfield was not there, our striking was poor with no organization, no urgency and no constructive moves,” Matano further fumed.“The players just didn’t measure up and without those changes I don’t think we would have matched that team,” he noted.He has now vowed to make a raft of changes for the return leg in Mahajanga on February 21 as he seeks to ensure his side progresses to the next round despite conceding a potentially dangerous away goal.Either a high scoring draw or outright win will see Leopards progress to the next round.“We are going to win, you just take my word,” Matano, with a rare smile on a frustrating evening signed off.If they successfully edge out a good result in Madagascar, AFC will face the winner between Ngazi Sport of the Comoros and AS Port Louis of Mauritius in the first round next month.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

IT’S PADDY’S DAY AS DONEGAL CLAIM VOCATIONAL SCHOOL’S TITLE

first_imgPaddy by name and Paddy by nature.When Donegal needed a hero on St.Patrick’s Day, then Patrick McBrearty was willing to fill the shoes.McBrearty forgot about the pressure and blasted home a penalty to give Donegal their sixth title Vocational Schools title at Pearse Stadium in Galway yesterday. The Kilcar lad’s goal at the end of the third quarter was decisive and Donegal will feel justice was done after being denied victory in the drawn game after a mix-up in scores.Donegal minor McBrearty — who hit 2-6 in the draw — was taken down when they led by 0-9 to 0-8 after 44 minutes and he converted.Reigning champions Cork never recovered and while Jeff O’Donoghue, Gary Farrell and Michael Vaughan found their range, Donegal had points from Shaun Boyle and John O’Malley to lift the crown for the first time since 2002.Aside from the penalty, all bar one of the remaining scores from both teams came from play in a high quality game which saw Cork race into a three-point lead in the opening eight minutes. But by half-time John Joe O’Shea’s team had reduced the margin to 0-6 to 0-5. The sides were level twice in the second half before McBrearty decided the issue with his penalty.SCORERS — Donegal: P McBrearty 1-1 (1-0 pen), S McGarvey 0-3, S Boyle, J O’Malley 0-2 each, L Barrett, B McNeilis, D White 0-1 each.Cork: J O’Donoghue 0-4, J Corkery, D Harrington, M Vaughan 0-2 each, G Farrell 0-1 (1f).Donegal — C McGlynn; J Campbell, A Blair, A McCloskey; M Reilly, P Doherty, N Breslin; D White, L Barrett; S McGarvey, J O’Malley, R McHugh; B McNeilis, P McBrearty, S Boyle.Sub: S Ellis for Breslin (38).
