first_imgSYDNEY, Australia (CMC):Carlos Brathwaite has thrown his support behind West Indies teammate Andre Russell after replacing the injured all-rounder for the remainder of Sydney Thunder’s Big Bash League campaign.Russell was forced out of the Twenty20 tournament after sustaining a hamstring injury during Thunder’s win over Melbourne Stars seven days ago.The 28-year-old Brathwaite said he chatted with Russell on his arrival and was hopeful the player could regain fitness soon.”Obviously, it’s not the best circumstances to come in. I spent the night with him the same night I landed, just chilling and chatting,” Brathwaite said.”I told him I felt he needed rest, but it’s always sad to see someone get injured, especially someone you’re so close to, someone like him, who works as hard as he works and deserves everything that he gets.”SIMILAR TALENTSBrathwaite will bring identical talents to those of Russell’s. The barrel-chested Barbadian is a steady seamer who relies mainly on variations, and is an aggressive lower order batsman and sharp fielder.He put his abilities on show in last year’s Twenty20 World Cup final when he blasted consecutive sixes off the first four balls of the final over from Ben Stokes to lift West Indies to a dramatic victory.The feat has followed him ever since, but Brathwaite was quick to downplay expectations.”It’s very hard. I guess the biggest and most difficult expectation was from myself,” Brathwaite said.”I kind of put those expectations to bed now. I realise I won’t hit four sixes in a row probably ever again. I’m trying to be consistent as I can.”Brathwaite’s first outing for Thunder earlier this week was a quiet one, taking two wickets and making six as the reigning champions won their second straight outing after losing their opening four games.last_img read more

first_img In reply, the reigning champions cruised to their target with ten overs remaining to continue their resurgence following a four-game losing streak to open the tournament. Opting to bat first, Sixers were quickly in trouble when they lost openers Michael Lumb (11) and top-scorer Daniel Hughes (20) cheaply to be 36 for two in the sixth over. Brathwaite and leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed, who was outstanding with four for 14 from his four overs, then combined to wreck the innings. Right-armer Brathwaite claimed wicketkeeper Brad Haddin (4), caught at mid-wicket in the 10th over; Johan Botha bowled for three, playing across the line in the 14th over before having Nathan Lyon caught in the deep for nine in the 18th over. Opener Kurtis Patterson then stroked an unbeaten 38 from 26 balls in a 54-run opening stand with James Vince, who hit 28, to put Thunder in charge. Losing streak SYDNEY, Australia (CMC): West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite was brilliant with the ball as Sydney Thunder won their third straight with an eight-wicket triumph over cross-town rivals, Sydney Sixers, to keep alive their hopes of a play-off spot in the Big Bash League here yesterday. Playing in only his second game since arriving to replace injured Windies teammate, Andre Russell, the Barbadian snatched three for 21 from four overs of clever medium pace to help restrict Sixers to a paltry 99 for nine, in front of nearly 40,000 at the Sydney Cricket Ground.last_img read more

first_imgHOUSTON (AP): New England Patriots win fifth title with record-breaking comeback to beat Falcons 34-28 in first Super Bowl overtime. Tom Brady has a record fifth Super Bowl win for a quarterback after the biggest comeback in the game’s history, and one of the greatest catches. James White ran 2 yards for a touchdown on the first possession of overtime, and the Patriots came back from 25 points down for a 34-28 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51. The Patriots drove to the tying score with help from a unbelievable catch by Julian Edelman, who somehow kept the ball off the turf on a diving grab of a tipped pass that bounced off a defender’s shoe. James White ran 1 yard for a touchdown, and Brady’s 2-point conversion pass to Danny Amendola tied the score at 28-all with 57 seconds left. The Falcons, who lost again in their second Super Bowl, led 28-3 in the third quarter after Matt Ryan’s second touchdown pass. Robert Alford had an 82-yard interception return in the first half.last_img read more

first_img RETURN ON INVESTMENT Executives from FLOW, exclusive telecommunications partner for the ISSA-GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Championships (Champs) are once again revelling in the value the association brings to its brand from a consumer perspective. Head of retail marketing and television at FLOW, Kim Lee, said that the meet – which is now the largest and most prestigious of its kind in the hemisphere – gives the company a great opportunity to connect with a large segment of its key consumer base. “As far as evaluating our return on investment over the past 13 years, Champs has over-delivered on its promised value. The massive crowds which have attended year after year, along with the high-profile and highly publicised nature of the annual activity gives us great fodder to land our consumer messages and bring attention to special products or initiatives,” Lee said. This year, Champs goers will have the unique opportunity to capitalise on yet another exciting phone offer from the telecommunications company. “From Tuesday to Friday, patrons switching to the FLOW network will be able to trade in voice feature phones or “bangers” as they are commonly referred to, in exchange for a brand new Android phone for only $1,400 + GCT,” Lee revealed. “As major sponsors, we are always looking for new and exciting ways to engage patrons as well as our customers directly and this year is no different. Everyone is now riding the mobile data wave and persons want to be able to get on social media, use video calling, and, of course, capture special moments like Champs. As such, this is the perfect opportunity to unleash this special offer,” she added. During the press launch held two weeks ago for the 2017 Championships, Lee said that beyond its commercial objectives, the activity also allows the company to meet its philanthropic mandate. “Over the past five years, we have invested approximately $10 million outside of our sponsorship fees directly into the sports programmes at several schools to support their participation at Champs,” she highlighted. This year, Calabar High School, Kingston College, Edwin Allen High School and Wolmer’s Boys School, were the beneficiaries of close to $800,000 in cash and other supplies through FLOW’s ‘Journey to Champs’ programme.last_img read more

first_img The students gathered in the school’s quadrangle from as early as 6:30 yesterday morning, with vuvuzelas blowing while dancing to music, which was provided by telecommunications company Flow. The students were also entertained by comedian Pretty Boy Floyd. Principal Walters said this is one of the school’s greatest achievements. After the celebrations yesterday morning, the athletes paraded through the town of Frankfield and on to Chapelton as they shared their victory with the communities which have been supporting them over the years. Everton Walters, principal of reigning ISSA-GraceKennedy Girls’ Athletics Champions Edwin Allen, said they intend on holding on to the title for a very long time. Walters made the declaration during yesterday’s title celebrations at the school’s grounds in Frankfield, Clarendon. Edwin Allen celebrated its fifth girls’ title in six years, after last weekend’s Championships at the National Stadium. At the end of the meet, Edwin Allen finished atop the point standings, with 316.5 points, a clear 51.5 points ahead of their closest rivals, Hydel High. “We want to have it as long as possible – even for the next five years – to maintain this dominance,” said Walters. “We were not deterred by what happen in 2013, because we lost by five points, but we were insistent that we were going to take it, and in 2014, we took it, and we have held it since, and I am very impressed with the team,” he added. Edwin Allen’s coach, Michael Dyke, said that he was very elated with his team’s achievements despite their struggles during the championships. “It became challenging during the course of the championships due to the fact that there is no such thing as a perfect championships, because we suffered our fair share of mishaps, but in the end, the girls stuck to the task,” said Dyke. “We had good experience, good quality, and they delivered in the end,” he said.

But the hardest part for an athlete to face is injuries and age,” he said.“Maybe tomorrow I will say I can’t fight anymore.“But as long as I can, I will not say goodbye to boxing because I’d hate to part with it.” IT happens: Facebook sorry for Xi Jinping’s name mistranslation Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. He chose China for his first title defence in order to promote the sport in the country, partnering with Chinese companies such as Alisports which is part of e-commerce giant Alibaba.“It was significant that I won the belt in Las Vegas, the boxing temple. I want to bring this glory and passion, as well as the boxing culture, to China,” he said.“It would be significant to defend it in China. I don’t just want to bring the belt from the highest temple, I also want to guard it in China and keep it in China.”The weight of history is against Zou.Communist China’s founder Mao Zedong banned the sport as too violent, and it only returned to the public consciousness in 1979 when Muhammad Ali visited China at the invitation of then-leader Deng Xiaoping.Zou won bronze at the Athens Olympics in 2004, then gold at the Beijing Games four years later, before successfully defending his title at the London games in 2012 to put boxing back on the map in China.Add three amateur world titles and it’s easy to see why, if anyone can make boxing big in China, Zou can.He may train boxers after he retires.“I know this business back to front: not just the training, but also their minds, their injuries, their illness and their promotion,” he said.“I know how to deal with pressure.” Duterte’s ‘soft heart’ could save ABS-CBN, says election lawyer Missile-capable frigate BRP Jose Rizal inches closer to entering PH Navy’s fleet Marcosian mode: Duterte threatens to arrest water execs ‘one night’ MOST READ End of his agony?
