Brathwaithe blames Williams for Windies loss

first_img(CMC) – LITTLE mention was made of West Indies’ fragile batting as the Caribbean side sought reasons to explain their 47-run defeat to New Zealand in Friday’s opening Twenty20 International.Instead, the spotlight fell on the final over of the Black Caps innings when seamer, Kesrick Williams, conceded 25 runs, allowing the hosts to rattle up 187 for seven off their allotted 20 overs, after they were sent in at Saxton Oval.“For the first 19 overs we bowled as good as we did. But it happens, Kesrick Williams has been the best bowler in the world this calendar year and he just went awry,” captain Carlos Brathwaite said afterwards.“It wasn’t even a bad day, just one bad over and that gave them some momentum going into our innings, and we never really got that big over.”Glenn Phillips top-scored with 55 and Colin Munro got 53, but the Windies snatched five wickets for 40 runs in 31 balls during the middle overs, to leave the hosts on 162 for seven at the end of the 19th.But Mitchell Santner, who finished on 23 not out from 11 balls, then tore into Williams, to propel New Zealand to a competitive total.Still, West Indies batted poorly from the outset, losing wickets steadily, and only Andre Fletcher with 27, Brathwaite who scored 21 and tail-ender Ashley Nurse, 21 not out, showed any real enterprise.They were already beaten at 103 for eight in the 16th over before Nurse saved some face with lusty hitting.“Credit to them (New Zealand). Sometimes you have to give credit to the opposition,” Brathwaite said of the Black Caps bowling effort.“They bowled with discipline and they fielded really well.”New Zealand captain Tim Southee praised his side’s all-round effort.“We struggled early on with the bat, but the guys hung in there and were able to finish really strongly and then the way we fielded and bowled was exceptional,” he said.West Indies face New Zealand in the second T20 at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui on New Year’s Day.last_img read more

2015 UPAC Basketball Games: University of Professional Studies qualifiers from zone one

first_imgThe University of Professional Studies Accra (UPSA) took advantage of a partisan crowd and the tactical ingenuity of coach Emmanuel Essel to qualify from Zone One of the 2015 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) basketball competition.“I played the whole competition from the bench and didn’t allow my players to do what they wanted on the court. That’s was my secret for winning this competition,” said coach of UPSA, Emmanuel Essel “.Emmanuel Essel, former coach of the University of Ghana basketball team, kept screaming instructions from the bench throughout the competition, in order to keep his team playing according to his strategy.In their first game, UPSA survived a scare from Pentecost University College but rallied to narrowly win by 29-28. The home team: UPSA outplayed an inexperienced Ho Polytechnic team with numerous turn overs in the second game. Ho Polytechnic relied on the individual talents of Sedem Tsetsevi, Cliton and Richardson, instead of playing as a single unit against a tactically well drilled UPSA team.  The last match of the day between UPSA and Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) decided who emerge from Zone One to the national competition. Both teams (UPSA and GIMPA) had won their respective first and second matches before they clashed in the last match.During the final match, the supporters and students of UPSA were on their feats dancing, singing and cheering their team on to successfully complete a ‘host and win’ mission. Every defensive and Offensive play of the UPSA team was cheered as UPSA led by their talisman, Delvin Bayonne out played the star studded GIMPA team by 25-20 points.“We focussed mainly on the defence and team work,” said Delvin Bayonne, who was adjudged the most outstanding player of the competition.Unlike the UPSA team, GIMPA’s star players: Kwame Boamah, Mc-Martey and Jake Morrison failed to deliver the much need points especially from the free throw line when it mattered most.“I don’t know what happened to my team in the final match and their inability to convert free throws, maybe it was the rim or something”, said Clement Adu-Gyamfi , coach of GIMPA.last_img read more

Ethnic Relations Commission must first work with politicians

first_imgDear Editor,The constitutional Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC) should direct its work as a matter of high priority at political leaders, Ministers of Government, members of the National Assembly, public servants, politicians and political groups of the People’s Progressive Party and the People’s National Congress.Working first with these categories can impact positively on race relations and social cohesion. They are the influential ones who – by private and public statements, conduct, and practice in their public duties – set the national tone for the politics of race and lust for power in Guyana. These groups should be the primary targets to promote peace, justice and reconciliation for the national community good.The ERC will be wasting its time and resources and will achieve nothing, unless it engages the political players and public officials identified above in a determined effort to promote reconciliation for improved race relations for the building of national unity. The ERC should simultaneously engage and investigate thoroughly public employment practices to determine fairness, discrimination based on ethnicity, political affiliation, or political opinion with reference to our Constitution and labour laws.There is wide spread observation and concern by the national community about employment practices in the public service and in public agencies. The Ethnic Relations Commission should undertake a comprehensive human resource audit on the ethnic composition of senior persons in the public sector for the challenge to those in public life, Government, the National Assembly, and public officials to take the appropriate corrective actions and measures in the national interest. The ERC can only justify its existence with integrity by pursuing actively the recommended actions above.With thanks,Joshua Singhlast_img read more
