Cricket Anyone / Most consecutive five-wickets-in-an-innings
« on: November 15, 2013, 03:47:59 PM »
Shane Shillingford took his fifth consecutive five-for, and his sixth overall in Tests, in India's first innings. He is only the fourth bolwer in Test history to take five-wicket hauls in five or more consecutive innings. The last time a bowler achieved this was way back in 1953 when Alec Bedser took two against India and three against Australia. Charlie Turner of Australia holds the record for taking the most consecutive five-wicket hauls - he took five-fors in six consecutive innings against England in the Ashes in 1888. Click here for a list of bowlers with most consecutive five-wicket hauls.

CTB Turner   6 - 10 Feb 1888
T Richardson 5 - 1 Mar 1895
AV Bedser 5 - 17 Jul 1952

This match will also be celebrated as the 150th Test appearance by West Indian stalwart, Shivnarine Chanderpaul.

West Indies will be led by allrounder Darren Sammy as they look to ascend the International Cricket Council rankings once more. They are presently ranked at Number 6 on 99 points according to the ICC rankings released on Monday. India are listed third on 116 points.

Lost one game so far to NZ , beat ENG twice. Finals tonight, 7pm

TAYLOR EXPECTS BIG CROWDS FOR DECIDER

BRIDGETOWN Barbados - Top West Indies cricketer Stafanie Taylor says she is anticipating a large turnout of spectators at Kensington Oval to witness the finals of the Women’s Twenty20 International Tri-nations series between the regional side and England on Saturday night.

The tournament,the first International women’s series being played in the region, which also involved New Zealand, has been attracting large crowds comprising regional and international spectators.

Taylor was speaking after the West Indies victory over England in a super over to end the preliminary phase of the tournament Thursday night.

“To be honest I like the support. People are actually coming out and supporting us and I must say I want them to continue supporting us,” Taylor said in an interview with WICB media.

“Sunday is the final and I know it’s is going to be a bigger crowd and I hope everybody will come out and enjoy the game”.

The super over became necessary after a tied game with both teams scoring 118 for seven.

Four  runs were needed off the final delivery of the game  and the England batters scrambled through for three runs after Danielle Hazell edged to third man to even the scores.

“I think it was actually good in the end,” said Taylor, the stand-in captain for regular skipper Merissa Aguilleira who was suffering from a flu.

“ I thought that after the two wickets that we got in the last over  it was a kind of a booster and it was kind of sad that from the one the last ball they got three runs to tie the game but I think all in all we did well”.

Deandra Dottin thrilled her hometown supporters by leading the victory charge with two fours in consecutive balls as West Indies scored nine without loss after England posted six for one wicket in the super over.

Taylor says the team favoured 17 year old spin sensation Shaquana Quintyne as the best choice to bowl the super over for West Indies.

“I think everybody decided that at the end of the day she had better stats than I did so we thought that it would be best for her to bowl,” said Taylor.

“I thought she held her nerve and bowled really really well. I am very proud of her”.

Both teams had already qualified for the finals and will therefore meet in a highly anticipated tournament decided from 7 Eastern Caribbean time Thursday night.

WICB to air Women’s Tri-Series LIVE on television
 
ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Cricket fans across the Caribbean will get to see live action from the
first ever international women’s tri-nation series hosted in the region.

The WICB announced today that it will produce and make available for broadcast, the upcoming
Women's T20 International Series – featuring West Indies, England and New Zealand.

The matches will be aired on terrestrial broadcasters in collaboration with the Caribbean Media
Corporation (CMC).

Games will be played under lights from Monday, October 14 to Saturday, October 26 at the
historic Kensington Oval – which hosted the finals of the ICC World T20 three years ago. First
ball is 7 pm (6pm Jamaica Time).

Nelecia Yeates, the WICB’s Commercial Manager, said the WICB responded to the call of fans.
 “Women’s cricket is on the rise in the region and across the world. As part of our mandate we
have embarked on this project, which will see the entire tournament being beamed across the
region. Fans have been calling for it and the broadcast will ensure that all matches will be seen
by as many people as possible,” Ms Yeates said.

“We will see some of the leading women’s cricketers in the world – including our own Stafanie
Taylor, Deandra Dottin and Shanel Daley – who are all rated among the best in the game. The
tournament promises to be action-packed and will be a great advertisement for women’s cricket
and women-in-sport in general.”

The three participating nations are among the top four teams in the world in the T20 and 50-over
formats. The Windies reached the semi-finals of ICC World T20 tournament in Sri Lanka a year
ago and were runners-up in the marquee ICC World Cup (50-overs) in India earlier this year.
 
The television coverage will feature an expert team of analysts, including former West Indies
batting great Desmond Haynes, who played 116 Tests and 238 One-Day Internationals in his
illustrious career.

Tendulkar, Dravid named in CLT20 squads

Sachin Tendulkar, who has retired from the IPL, and Rahul Dravid, who has indicated the upcoming Champions League would be his last tournament, have been named in the Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals squads for the Twenty20 event. A Faisalabad Wolves squad has also been announced, in an indication of the Pakistan side's probable participation in the qualifying stage of the league, after political tensions between India and Pakistan had cast doubts over whether they would be allowed to come over.

Kumar Sangakkara is the only player who hasn't preferred his IPL franchise for the tournament among the 12 wanted by two sides, and has decided to play for his home side Kandurata Maroons. Explaining the process for deciding which teams these players would represent, Dean Kino, a CLT20 governing council member and director of legal and business affairs, said: "Players who were named by more than one team were asked to select which team they were going to play for. Teams were then allowed to replace any player that withdrew from their squad and elected to play for another side.

"CLT20 regulations state that when a player elects to play for their 'away' team, that team must pay the 'home' team $150,000 compensation per player. A 'home' team is classified as a team from the country a player is eligible to represent in international cricket.

"This payment is applicable for 10 of the 12 players that were eligible for more than one team. The exceptions are Kumar Sangakkara, who will be representing Kandurata Maroons, which is classified as his home team, and Thisara Perera, who qualified for Brisbane Heat and Sunrisers Hyderabad, neither of which is classified as his home team."

Lasith Malinga has not been named in the Mumbai Indians squad as he wanted to be with his wife and family, as they expect their second child late in September.

Group A includes Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals, Lions, Perth Scorchers and Qualifier 1 while Group B has Chennai Super Kings, Brisbane Heat, Titans, Trinidad & Tobago and Qualifier 2. Otago Volts, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Faisalabad Wolves and Kandurata Maroons will play the qualifiers beginning on September 17 in Hyderabad, with the top two sides advancing to the main draw starting September 21 in Jaipur and to be played across Ranchi, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad and Delhi.

NO EXCUSES

Red Steel coach Greenidge wants home advantage to pay off

Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel head coach Gordon Greenidge says he is not going to make any excuses for his team’s poor showing in their first two matches in the Caribbean Premier League Twenty20 and is hoping for better returns in their home games starting tomorrow night.

The Red Steel lost to the Guyana Amazon Warriors in their tournament opener last week before being blown away by the Barbados Tridents over the weekend.

With five matches to play in the preliminary round of the competition, the Red Steel need to turn their fortunes around if they are to have any chance of making the semi-finals.

They tackle the Jamaica Tallawahs at Queen’s Park Oval tomorrow night in the first of three home matches and Greenidge says the turnaround must start there.

He said: “No excuses. We had matches to play. We had opportunities. We just did not play well enough to win.

“We are looking forward to better things obviously. So far we have not played as well as we should and know we could but we have three home matches so we need to make use of the match here like the other teams have done.

“Hopefully, come Wednesday we can put that first win under our belts and move on to Friday and Sunday.
“Trinidad have performed exceptionally over the years in T20 games. As a matter of fact, Trinidad in the last eight years or so has been perhaps the mainstay in the regional cricket in the Caribbean. The players are not new to this,” he added.

The coach also noted that the players have been getting along and gelling together really well and are eager to get their first win of the campaign.

“Once you get that first win under your belt, things will start to happen. We hope we can get that win on Wednesday. It has to happen on Wednesday, we can’t wait for it to happen on Friday.
“There is no looking back now. There are no second chances. Each match now is like a final to us and we need to win the next three matches at least,” the coach insisted.

Asked about what needs to be done to turn things around for the franchise, Greenidge did not discount making changes.

“The top order, the middle order...it is all concerns at the moment. We need to see if a change or shuffle around can make the difference. We need to find out if the guys are happy and contented in the position they are in and also the positions they may have to occupy seeing that things have not gone according to plan.

“I think we have not batted well which is obvious. We have not scored sufficient runs.

“In the first match, we should have done better but we didn’t. The second match, we lost our way completely and we did not bat for 20 overs which is a major disappointment. As a matter of fact, the whole match lasted only 20 overs. That is not acceptable in a situation like this.

“We should have done better. We know we can do better,” he added.

Tyson Gay and Asafa Powell: Olympic sprinters fail drug tests

US sprinter Tyson Gay and Jamaica's former 100m world record holder Asafa Powell have failed drug

Gay, 30, the joint-second fastest man over 100m, was notified by the US Anti-Doping Agency on Friday that his A sample from an out-of-competition test in May had returned a positive.

The management company for Powell confirmed he had tested positive for a banned substance.
Another Jamaican sprinter, Sherone Simpson, has also failed a drug test.

The Olympic 4x100m relay silver medallist said on Sunday she had tested positive for a stimulant at last month's national championships.

Powell and Simpson's doping positives come a month after Jamaican Olympic champion Veronica Campbell-Brown tested positive for a banned diuretic.

The 30-year-old Powell was the last man to hold the individual 100m record before compatriot Usain Bolt broke it in 2008. He is still the fourth fastest man of all time.

Powell later helped Jamaica to win 400m relay gold at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
Gay, the fastest man in 2013, is waiting for the results of his 'B' sample.

He has already withdrawn from next month's World Championships in Moscow.

"I don't have a sabotage story... I basically put my trust in someone and was let down," he said.
"I know exactly what went on, but I can't discuss it right now.
"I hope I am able to run again, but I will take whatever punishment I get like a man."

More to follow.

Report: Five Jamaican athletes fail drug tests

Last updated Sun 14 Jul 2013
Sport Jamaica Tyson Gay athletics

 
Five Jamaican athletes - including two London 2012 medallists - have tested positive for banned substances, according to the Jamaican newspaper the Gleaner.

Two field and three track athletes reportedly tested positive for the banned substances following recent tests at Jamaica's National Stadium.

The paper reports that two of the runners who allegedly tested positive for the banned substances won medals at the Olympic Games in London.

The Jamaican Anti-Doping Agency said it had not received any independent verification of the adverse findings.

The revelations, a month ahead of the World Championships, come after the American sprinter Tyson Gay revealed he had tested positive for a banned substance.
