Guyana All-Stars thrash Caribbean All-Stars by five wickets

Posted on by

first_imgTHE Guyana All-Stars completed a five-wicket win over the Caribbean All-Stars in the Hurricane Relief Twenty20 game Sunday evening.Given the strength of both teams, the result was of academic interest, since the encounter played at the Guyana National Stadium, Providence, was aimed at garnering funds to support relief efforts for last month’s Hurricane victims in the Caribbean.With the absence of a number of advertised players, the no show of the local artistes and the cheerleaders, the crowd support was the biggest disappointment.However, moments after both teams were met by Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo and Director of Sport Christopher Jones, play eventually got underway an hour later than the scheduled 17:00hrs start.Sent in, the Caribbean All-Stars piled up an imposing 174-5 off their 20 overs.The total was bolstered by a 97-run opening partnership between Andre Fletcher and Kjorn Ottley. Fletcher, who was bowled off a free-hit when on 29, made a 57-ball 77, with six sixes and a four.Both batsmen unleashed a barrage of boundaries to race out of the blocks to score 44 at end of the first six overs.The duo kept the hosts under pressure with confident batting and with a healthy run rate at the halfway point of the innings.Sherfane Rutherford cuts for one of his eight boundaries square of the wicket.However, spinner Ramaal Lewis provided the Guyanese with the first breakthrough when he bowled Ottley for 38 off 32 balls; his innings included four fours and two sixes. One run later, Guyanese Shemroy Barrington (1), was caught in the midwicket region off of Ricardo Adams.Those two quick wickets had no effect on Fletcher, who continued the assault, along with Nicolas Pooran, who took 19 runs off the 15th over bowled by Veerasammy Permaul.Pooran made a breezy 33 off 15 balls, with three sixes and two fours. Lendl Simmons made a first-ball duck before Fletcher fell in the penultimate over.Romario Shepherd ended with 2 – 39 while Adams and Lewis took a wicket apiece.The hosts faced a few anxious moments in their run chase after losing opener Robin Bacchus (4) early, but fellow opener Sherfane Rutherford stood firm, and carved out a number of sweetly timed boundaries.He ensured there were no more hiccups until the halfway stage of the innings, when skipper Leon Johnson (15), was removed.Anthony Bramble (9) and Rutherford fell in quick succession. Rutherford’s innings of 51 lasted for 41 ball, and included eight fours.However, late cameos from Christopher Barnwell, who made 25 off 11 balls, with three fours and a six, Jonathan Foo (23 off 15 balls), and Gajanand Singh (16 not out) completed the victory in 18.5 overs.Kellon Carmichael who grabbed 2 –24 from three overs, was the best bowler for the Caribbean All-Stars.The game was organised by the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB)in partnership with Ansa McAl’s Carib Beer and Keem’s Foundation, a charitable organisation.last_img read more

Chelsea v Arsenal preview: Match details, kick-off time, facts, predicted line-ups

Posted on by

first_imgWHEN IS THE MATCH?Saturday September 19, kick-off at 11:45am (Ghana time)WHERE IS THE MATCH BEING PLAYED?Stamford Bridge.WHY IS IT WORTH FOLLOWING? Chelsea are in disarray. A tetchy Jose Mourinho was recorded making an off-colour remark to Everton manager Roberto Martinez in the wake of his side’s 3-1 defeat on Saturday – all because his counterpart ‘jumped ahead’ of him in the interview queue. Martinez’s response added weight to what many already believe – that Mourinho is only gentlemanly when he’s winning. “When he beat us 6-3 last season he was such a nice man,” said Martinez in the recording. “I prefer him like that.”Now chuck Arsene Wenger into the mix. The Arsenal manager has a running feud with Mourinho and would enjoy nothing more than inflicting another defeat on Chelsea. Can he do it? Recent history says probably not: the Gunners have failed to beat Chelsea in seven Premier League outings, although they claimed a morale-boosting win in the Charity Shield in the annual season curtain-raiser.Arsenal will climb into second, albeit probably temporarily with victory, while Chelsea could do without chants of “we are staying up” and must start accumulating points soon…TEAM NEWS Forward Willian is out of Chelsea’s Premier League clash. Striker Radamel Falcao, playmaker Oscar (both knee) and Pedro (thigh) could be available, but are doubtful. Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is out for around three months following knee surgery, while defender Papy Djilobodji, who is not in the Champions League squad, could be included. Arsenal report no fresh injury worries from the midweek Champions League trip to Dinamo Zagreb. Goalkeeper Petr Cech is set to return against his former club, having been on the bench in Croatia, while defender Hector Bellerin and midfielder Aaron Ramsey are also back in the squad after being rested. Centre back Per Mertesacker could be in contention again after recovering from illness. Midfielder Jack Wilshere is set for an operation on a hairline fracture in his left fibula next week, while forward Danny Welbeck and Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky (both knee) are also sidelined MANAGER QUOTESJose Mourinho: “In everything you do in life, you need confidence to be better. In football, when you lose matches, you are affected. You can say you’re not but you are. Normally, when bad things in football happen, the first thing is to find a dramatic story. Somebody punched someone in the dressing-room. The manager doesn’t want to speak with this guy. Diego Costa fought with John Terry and before they start the fight, they brought a translator for them to understand each other because Diego cannot speak English and John cannot speak Spanish. They organise it like the Wild West duels. We are going to fight at this time, bring a translator to help us. Or, Mourinho doesn’t want to give new contracts to Terry and (Branislav) Ivanovic. Mourinho instructs the scouts to find a new right-back urgently.”Arsene Wenger: “Let’s not forget it is the start of the season and only five games have been played. For us it is a big game and we know our position at the end of the season will depend on how well we do in the big games. I do not think too much about where Chelsea stand in the league at the moment. I focus more on us performing well with full power tomorrow.”  MATCH FACTSChelsea are unbeaten against Arsenal in their last seven Barclays Premier League encounters (W4 D3).The Gunners have failed to score in their last four Premier League matches against the Blues and have managed just two goals in their last seven league games against them.Arsene Wenger secured his first win over Jose Mourinho in the Community Shield on his 14th attempt in all competitions (D6 L7). Eden Hazard has scored in the Blues’ last two PL clashes with Arsenal at Stamford Bridge, with both goals coming in the first half from the penalty spot.Jose Mourinho has never lost successive league home games as a manager – he lost his last home league game against Crystal Palace (1-2).Theo Walcott has scored 11 goals in his last 11 Premier League starts for Arsenal.The Gunners have won seven and lost none of their last eight Premier League away matches.Chelsea have kept five clean sheets in their last seven Premier League games against Arsenal, including the last four in a row. Arsenal have fired in the most shots on target in the Premier League (39), while Chelsea have allowed their opponents the most in the top flight (38).Only David James (169) has kept more clean sheets than Petr Cech (165) in Premier League history and the Czech has not been beaten in his last three league outings.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
