T&T defeat Guyana by 5 wickets

first_imgGuyana were condemned to a five wicket defeat at the hands of Trinidad and Tobago while Barbados and Jamaica registered victories over Leeward Islands and Windward Islands respectively in the opening round of the Cricket West Indies Colonial Medical Insurance Women’s T20 Blaze at the National Stadium, Providence yesterday. In the second match of the day, Guyana won the toss and elected to bat first, posting a fighting 157-4 in their allotted overs. However, a horrendous bowling display by the hosts allowed Trinidad to reach 161-5 in 18.4 overs.Once again, Guyana was fetched on the back of Shemaine Campbelle who smashed an unbeaten 54-ball 77. The West Indies batter smashed six fours and three sixes including a 24-run final over from Karishma Ramharack after being dropped on 39 on a marvelous attempted relay catch on the boundary between Britney Cooper and Shania Abdool, as well as on 42 at point.Campbelle was supported by a brisk start from Sheneta Grimmond (21) and Treymane Smartt (21). However, Guyana’s bowling did not support the effort of the batting as player of the match, Stacy Ann King laid the platform for Trinidad with a 48-ball 59 consisting of five fours and one six. The poorly set field leaked boundaries in almost every over as King and Leeann Kirby (31) shared in a 68-run opening stand that was broken when Kirby held out to Erva Giddings at mid-wicket on her 19th delivery.The helpless bowling attack allowed Cooper to come in and express herself with the bat by stroking an unbeaten 52. Cooper’s innings was highlighted by one six over mid-wicket off of Kaysia Schultz and eight fours, five of which was taken off of Shabika Gajnabi in the 14th over.Earlier, Barbados disposed of Leeward Islands by a 99-run margin after winning the toss and posting 206-6 while limiting Leewards to 107-5 in their allotted overs. Once again, Hayley Matthews got off to an aggressive start, scoring 45 from just 22 balls, laced with eight fours and one six. Matthews had shared in a 46-run opening stand with Danielle Small (7) who was run out after Shawnisha Hector was smacked for 24 in the second over of the day.Leewards fought back with two quick wickets but Deandra Dottin continued her extraordinary form with a 23-ball 63 consisting of 10 fours and three sixes, taking Jenisen Richards for 36 and 21 in her final two overs.Dottin forged a fourth wicket partnership of 80 with Kyshona Knight who contributed just eight towards the 36-ball union. In reply, only Shebani Bhaskar showed any ambitions of batting for long with an unbeaten 40 that was decorated with five fours through the leg side.Melissa Howard (18) and Hector (15) showed some positivity with the bat but their efforts were foiled after being trapped leg before wicket to Matthews and being hit in the head and falling on the stumps off of Shamila Connell respectively.Meanwhile, in the final encounter under lights, Jamaica marched to a 62-run victory over Windward Islands. Jamaica won the toss and batted first, posting 185-2 from their allotted overs. The defending champions were indebted to Natasha McLean, who was dropped on two and 17 and went on to make 56 containing five fours and two sixes. McLean shared in a 123-run opening stand with Jodian Morgan who blasted an unbeaten 72 that was laced with 10 fours and two sixes. In reply, Windwards closed on 123-8, despite Juliana Nero’s 60 and Afy Fletcher’s 35 that resisted the Jamaican bowling with a 67-run second wicket partnership.The contest continues tomorrow from 09:00hrs with Guyana battling Leewards, Trinidad taking on Windwards and Barbados facing Jamaica.last_img read more

2015 Orioles preview: Alejandro De Aza

first_imgWith Opening Day just less than three weeks away, we’ll take a look at a member of the 2015 Orioles every day as they try to defend their American League East title this season.March 9 – Adam Jones March 10 – Chris Tillman March 11 – J.J. Hardy March 12 – Zach Britton March 13 – Chris Davis March 14 – Wei-Yin Chen March 15 – Jonathan Schoop March 16 – Travis Snider March 17 – Kevin GausmanOF Alejandro De AzaOpening Day age: 30Contract status: Under club control through the 2015 seasonMinor-league options remaining: Need player permission to option due to five years of major league experience2014 stats: .252/.314/.386, 8 HR, 41 RBI, 56 R, 17 SB, 528 PAWhy to be impressed: The left-handed hitter provided a spark for the Orioles down the stretch after coming over from the White Sox, posting an .877 on-base plus slugging percentage in 89 plate appearances. His speed can be an asset as he’s expected by many to take over the leadoff spot against right-handed pitching and has stolen 79 bases in his career. Why to be concerned: De Aza’s overall OPS has declined steadily from .920 in 2011 to just .700 last season, and he walked just 39 times a year ago, which isn’t exactly what manager Buck Showalter is looking for at the top of the order. His defense is better at the corner outfield spots than in center, but De Aza has profiled as a below-average defensive player in his career. 2015 outlook: De Aza was a good starting outfielder in 2011 and 2012, but his career path has been declining ever since, making it concerning if the Orioles entrust him with a near-everyday role. He’ll provide some speed and reach double digits in homers, but an OPS in the low .700s, mediocre defense, and struggles against left-handed pitching aren’t qualities you’re looking for in a starting outfielder on a contending club.last_img read more

Ailis O’Reilly performed well for Mystics on the night, scoring 17 points, however the spotlight was on Killester’s Christa Reed who scored a whopping 44 points, the same amount as Mystics’ final score. Mystics will face reigning National Cup champions DCU Mercy next week.Belfast Star have stormed to the top of the Basketball Ireland Men’s Super League table this weekend following a ten-point win over Garvey’s Tralee Warriors in front of a capacity crowd in the kingdom on Saturday evening.Big displays once more from Mike Davis and Mark Berlic along with a 25-point performance from Sergio Vidal Baldovi helped Star over the line in a pulsating game that saw a big push from the visitors late in the third to drive on down the stretch to win out 79-89 in the end.Speaking afterwards, Star head coach, Adrian Fulton, reflected on a big road win for his side: “That was two very, very good teams going toe-to-toe for a lot of the game and I thought it was a very good spectacle for the huge crowd here. We’re delighted obviously, it’s a win and it’s a big win as it’s on the road, and we’re delighted.”His son, 16-year-old CJ Fulton, was one of the stars on the night for the Belfast squad and Adrian admitted he’s been performing well for the team: “He has been doing well, we’re delighted with him, and we didn’t think he’d be playing nearly as much as he is. It’s more out of necessity – Aidan Quinn is injured, Conor is basically playing with one hand, and CJ was given the opportunity and he’s grasped it and it’s terrific.”DCU Saints meanwhile took home the bragging rights from their Dublin derby with Templeogue on Saturday evening, winning out by just one point at the death (67-68) at Oblate Hall. Huge performances from Martins Provizors and Mike Bonaparte – who combined for 42 points on the night – helped DCU to put the game in the melting pot in the third quarter and Tariq Guebaili was the hero of the hour when he put Saints ahead by the minimum with five seconds to go. Templeogue just couldn’t find the target from the free throw line as the seconds ticked down to see a memorable victory for the Saints in the end.UCD Marian got back to winning ways on Saturday evening with an 86-64 point win over Keane’s SuperValu Killorglin in Dublin. Top scoring from Conor Meany and Mike Garrow helped the hosts into a 41-27 point lead at half-time and they didn’t look back from there, despite the sharp shooting of Killorglin’s Pierre Newton which saw him finish the game on 30 points. Griffith College Swords Thunder continued their recent winning streak, running out 87-78 point winners over UCC Demons. Another huge display from guard, Elijah Mays, saw him finish with a tally of 32 points to help Swords home to a fourth consecutive win.Over in the Women’s Super League, Courtyard Liffey Celtics and Ambassador UCC Glanmire remain the only two unbeaten teams in the league, with four wins from four games apiece. This tees up a hugely interesting clash between the two sides next Saturday evening when they go head-to-head in Upper Glanmire.Liffey Celtics ran out impressive 80-57 point winners over DCU Mercy in a big battle in Leixlip on Saturday evening.  A combined 54-point display from Celtics’ Americans, Briana Green and Allie LeClaire, helped see them home to glory.“I’m absolutely delighted with the win,” said Liffey head coach, Mark Byrne. “I thought we played really well at times especially in the second half. I think, like some other games we’ve had this year, the scoreline maybe flatters us a little bit as DCU are very good and it was a tough game, but I’m really, really happy with how we played. It was a good strong performance all round. It’s great to be 4-0, but it’s very early still.”Ambassador UCC Glanmire meanwhile took the spoils against IT Carlow Basketball on Sunday afternoon, running out 49-61 point winners after a convincing display from the Cork side.  Maxol WIT Wildcats also took home an emphatic 71-32 point win over Marble City Hawks on Saturday evening, with a solid team performance seeing a host of scores from Meibh Maher, Allyssa Velles and Cathy Kavanagh to send them home to victory.Niamh and Grainne Dwyer meanwhile were on hand to save the day for Fr Mathews on Sunday, as they secured a two-point victory at the death in a ding-dong battle in the Parochial Hall. With nothing separating the sides throughout the contest, two free throws in the dying seconds from the cool hands of Niamh was followed at the other end by a vital steal by Grainne to see their side home to a 70-72 point win in the big Cork derby. Grainne led the scoring with a whopping 30-point display.
