Russell stars but Thunder lose again

first_imgSYDNEY, Australia (CMC):Not even a fine all-round effort from West Indies star Andre Russell was enough to save Sydney Thunder from crashing to a 30-run defeat to Perth Scorchers, in the Australian Big Bash here yesterday.Chasing 176 for victory at the Sydney Showground Stadium, Thunder slumped to 17 for two in the third over before crawling to 145 for nine off their 20 overs.The 27-year-old Russell unfurled a whirlwind 42 off 20 deliveries with five sixes but wickets continued to fall as Thunder slid to their third straight loss, leaving them fourth in the BBL standings.With their victory, Scorchers moved to the top of the standings on eight points along with Adelaide Strikers but with a superior net run rate.Sent in, Scorchers recovered from a position of one run for two wickets in the second over to rally to 175 for five off 20 overs.The revival came through Cameron Bancroft who struck 72 off 53 balls in anchoring two key stands. He first put on 63 for the third wicket with Shaun Marsh, who hit 28 from 22 balls and a further 105 for the third wicket with Ashton Agar, who blasted 68 off 34 deliveries.Pacer Russell, who knocked over Michael Klinger with the third ball of the game without a run on the board, returned to claim Bancroft in the penultimate over and end with two for 31 from four overs.In reply, Thunder lost South African Jacques Kallis (7) and Aiden Blizzard (7) cheaply to left-arm seamer Jason Behrendorff before Russell came to their rescue with his cameo.RUNRATEHis first nine deliveries yielded eight runs without a single boundary, but with the required run rate jumping to 13 at the end of the 11th over, Russell launched an all-out assault.He twice cleared the ropes with left-arm spinner Brad Hogg in the 12th over, which went for 16 runs, and then smashed leg-side sixes off English left-arm seamer David Willey in the next over, which also cost 16 runs.It took the return Behrendorff and a stunning catch from Joel Paris at fine leg to account for Russell in the 14th over with the score on 97 for five.Once he departed, the innings lost momentum, with four more wickets falling for the addition of just 40 runs.last_img read more

‘FishMS’ service a hit in SA

first_img10 July 2007The Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative (SASSI) has successfully turned to technology to help preserve the country’s many fish species, with its FishMS service informing users of which species are in plentiful supply, endangered or illegal to buy.“The instant access to accurate information and an informed choice has struck a chord with South Africa’s seafood lovers and cellphone users,” SASSI spokesperson Timony Siebert told the South African Press Agency (Sapa) this week.He told the agency that more than 3 000 people had made more than 11 000 enquiries since the service was introduced last December.Users can SMS the name of the fish in question to 079 499 8795 and a reply by the service will confirm if the fish is in plentiful supply, endangered or illegal to buy.Siebert told SAinfo that the service was funded and developed from “home-grown” technology by iVeri Payment Technologies, who also manage the system, as part of their contribution to the SASSI.“They thought it would be a novel and fun way to help champion the SASSI cause,” Siebert said.Siebert said that it took about 8 weeks to develop and another month of “fine tuning and beta testing” before the service went live, and was promoted “mostly through print media and then spin-offs from radio interviews, internet, word of mouth and SASSI networking partners”.The SASSI has already released a downloadable pocket guide and booklet as well as online database for seafood lovers, which separates fish species into three lists:Green – These species have well-managed populations that can sustain current fishing pressure, and are recommended as the most sustainable choices available. Orange – Though registered commercial fishers and retailers may legally sell these species, an increase in demand could compromise a sustainable supply. Red – These are species that are illegal to buy or sell in South Africa according to the Marine Living Resources Act. Some of these are recreational species that can be caught for ones own enjoyment, subject to the possession of a valid recreational fishing permit as well as other restrictions.Sapa reported that the highest number of queries for a single species was for the Kingklip, which is on the orange list, with 744 enquiries, while the most queries for a fish on the red list was for the Galjoen with 333 enquiries.“SMSs to the FishMS service are charged at normal cellphone rates,” Siebert told SAinfo.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more
