Cornwall’s allround display leaves Barbados Pride facing uphill task

first_imgBASSETERRE, St Kitts, (CMC) – An excellent all-rounder display from Rahkeem Cornwall rallied Leeward Islands Hurricanes and left Barbados Pride with an uphill task, heading into the third day of their opening round Regional Four-Day Championship contest at Warner Park.The burly 23-year-old smashed a lively 84 as the Hurricanes, resuming from their overnight 210 for five, were dismissed for an impressive 377 in their first innings on yesterday’s second day.Nkrumah Bonner, unbeaten on 70 overnight, fell short of three figures with 94.Off-spinner Kenroy Williams grabbed four of the five wickets to fall to finish with four for 26 while captain and seamer Kevin Stoute claimed three for 35.In response, Pride ended the day on 102 for three, still 275 runs adrift of overhauling their target.West Indies A captain, Shamarh Brooks, was unbeaten on 28 while opener Omar Phillips made 24 and Test batsman Roston Chase, 22.Once again, Cornwall proved to be the Hurricanes’ main asset, picking up two for 41, to give them honours on the day.His innings had earlier also given the hosts the momentum, as he and Bonner combined to extend their sixth wicket stand to 68, before being separated.Unbeaten on six overnight, Cornwall, one of the successes on the recent West Indies A tour of Sri Lanka, faced 150 balls in a shade over three hours at the crease and counted 12 fours and a six.Bonner, meanwhile, hit 11 fours in a knock spanning 254 deliveries and 5-1/4 hours.When the Jamaican fell, Cornwall anchored another key partnership, adding a further 55 for the seventh wicket with Jacques Taylor whose 29 required 117 balls in just over two hours and contained three fours and a six.Cornwall then set Barbados back early when he bowled Anthony Alleyne for 19 at 26 for one in the ninth over of the innings before Brooks and Phillips put on 35 to steady the reply.When Phillips became Cornwall’s second victim at 61 for two, Brooks and Chase posted 38 for the third wicket – a stand that appeared set to take Pride safely to the close without further loss.But the introduction of off-spinner Jacques Taylor accounted for Chase, lbw at 99 for three, to give Hurricanes the advantage.HURRICANES 1st Innings(overnight 210 for five)*K Powell c Williams b Stoute 26K Carty lbw b Greaves 0M Hodge lbw b Stoute 8C Hughes b Warrican 31N Bonner c wkp Rampersad b Chase 94+J Hamilton c Roach b Stoute 65R Cornwall c Stoute b Williams 84J Taylor c and b Williams 29H Walsh Jr cot out 19G Tonge c Phillips b Williams 11Q Boatswain c Phillips b Williams 1Extras (b1, lb8) 9TOTAL (all out, 157.5 overs) 377Fall of wickets: 1-12, 2-38, 3-39, 4-92, 5-204, 6-272, 7-327, 8-348, 9-368, 10-377.Bowling: Roach 18-7-43-0, Greaves 14-6-34-0, Stoute 25-11-35-3, Chase 18-4-60-1, Warrican 50-17-104-1, Charles 23-6-64-0, Brooks 1-0-2-0, Williams 8.5-1-26-4.PRIDE 1st InningsO Phillips c Bonner b Cornwall 24A Alleyne b Cornwall 19S Brooks not out 28R Chase lbw b Taylor 22J Warrican not out 1Extras (b1, lb1, nb5) 7TOTAL (3 wkts, 36 overs) 102To bat: K Stoute, K Williams, +M Rampersad, J Greaves, K Roach, N Charles.Fall of wickets: 1-26, 2-61, 3-99.Bowling: Tonge 7-3-9-0, Boatswain 6-2-24-0, Cornwall 15-3-41-2 (nb4), Walsh 5-1-20-1, Taylor 3-1-6-1.Position: Pride trail by 275 runs with seven wickets remaining.last_img read more

Afcon 2017: Equatorial Guinea go out after defeat to Mali

first_imgEquatorial Guinea, who hosted last year’s Africa Cup of Nations, became the first team to be eliminated from the qualifiers for the 2017 tournament in Gabon after a 1-0 home defeat to Mali.Mustapha Yatabare hit Mali’s winner in the 89th minute in Malabo to put his team top of Group C, two points above Benin on 10 points.Equatorial Guinea, who reached the semi-finals on home soil in 2015, are now bottom of the group on one point with two games to play.South Sudan are third, on three points, and still have a slim chance of qualifying as one of the best two runners-up.Elsewhere on Monday, Zimbabwe swept aside Swaziland 4-0 in their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations Group L qualifier.The hosts, who earned a 1-1 draw in Swaziland on Friday, dominated the return match in Harare to move three points clear at the top of the table. Knowledge Musona opened the scoring on 53 minutes from the penalty spot and Costa Nhamoinesu made it 2-0 six minutes later.Evans Rusike extended the advantage and Khama Billiat sealed the win late on.Musona told BBC Sport: “I am feeling very happy. The team collected maximum points at home, we are top of the group and we have a big chance to qualify.”It is crucial we take maximum points from our next game at home (against Malawi on 3 June).”Swaziland remain on five points, three points above Malawi and Guinea who play each other on Tuesday. Each of the group winners and the two best runners-up qualify for next year’s finals in Gabon.In Group B Central African Republic came back from a goal down to beat Madagascar 2-1.Faneva Andriatsima opened the scoring for the visitors on 35 minutes and they went into the half-time break 1-0 up.But two goals in 12 minutes turned the game on its head as Salif Keita stuck the equaliser on 53 minutes for CAR and then Limane Moussa hit the winner.The result puts CAR top of the table by a point from DR Congo, who play Angola on Tuesday. Libya got their first points of Group F with a 4-0 win over Sao Tome e Principe.In a match played in Egypt on security grounds, Libya’s Mohamed Zubya hit a second half hat-trick. –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.

It’s Hell being on top

first_imgAt this stage in the “game” of life a few folks are probably in the midst of one of these three stages. Stage one: having or had a very merry, cherry Christmas. Stage two: not having celebrated or even had any feelings one way or another. And most important (at least to me) is stage three: the ole fake and L-tryptophan inspired New Year’s resolution. I currently have no plans on making any vows for 2012 because except in one or two instances during my lifetime, I have not even come close to keeping the promises I made to myself. I am the first to admit that I been a bit hard on Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin since he arrived in Pittsburgh. I wasn’t trying to be a jerk, but I was truly attempting to assist him in becoming thick skinned in regards to what he was about to face.One of the questions posed to Tomlin at the post game press conference after the Steelers dismantled the St. Louis Rams by the score of 27-0, was, “What did you learn about your team going into the playoffs?” There were snickers throughout the press room. Duh, I wish someone would have asked Bill Cowher or Chuck Noll that same question. Can you imagine the cold stare they would have gotten from “The Emperor” or the look of disgust that they would have received from Cowher? How much of a test was it for the Steelers and what possible lessons could Tomlin have taken from his team playing the Rams, an NFL bottom feeder for nearly a decade, that on Christmas Eve sported a 2-12 record entering Heinz Field to compete against a team who is almost always at the top of the NFL food chain.Another question Tomlin seemed to “take in stride” was this one. “Coach, could you comment on the tackle that Antonio [Brown] made on the Rams fake punt?” Tomlin responded, “I didn’t see it, actually I was talking to Ike Taylor and William Gay on a defensive adjustment.” By the way, Mike Tomlin is truly a football genius because at this juncture of his career he thoroughly understands that when anyone is evaluating anything, anywhere, anytime, “the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.” The majority of the credentialed scribes in Pittsburgh came to the flawed conclusion many years ago that certain players represented the “whole,” while the remaining participants were just bit players. This would seem to certainly include (at least in their minds) the head coach. Hey not so fast; well maybe not head coaches in general but a leader who in the slanted and biased view of the majority of us charged with covering professional football just a tad insignificant in regards to the outcome of the game because his skin contained excessive amounts of melanin.I have heard and witnessed my colleagues gushing over the intellect of certain guru’s that have the responsibility of guiding their franchises on the field. However, when the subject of Tomlin surfaces, it seems as if he is a mere footnote when it comes to the outcome of the games. The most recent resident “intellect” in the NFL is the headmaster of the reigning Champion Green Bay Packers, Mike McCarthy. Just prior to Super Bowl XLV in Dallas there were several features produced on McCarthy, a Pittsburgh native.I understand that Mr. McCarthy is part of the “yinzers” network but give the head coach of your “hometown team” equal billing. When Pittsburgh has a great defensive game Dick LeBeau gets the credit, ditto for the offense and Bruce Arians.Just prior to the Steelers/Cardinals Super Bowl XLIII matchup in Tampa, the majority of the bright lights were focused on Arizona Cardinals Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt, the man who was surely cheated out of the Steelers head coaching job by the “Rooney Rule.” The “majority of the Pittsburgh media “establishment” were openly rooting and cheering for Whisenhunt to prevail over Tomlin just so they could be proven right. What issue did they feel needed to be proven?The matter that had to be confirmed was that the man who paid his dues would almost always prevail over someone who was “handed” the reins of the leadership position.I have resigned myself to the fact that the sitting majority will always equate superior numbers to equivalent intellect. That sort of flawed, biased reasoning and analysis, my friends, will almost always result in damaging the psyches and lowering the esteem of those who are threatened with the progression of those that they consider inferior.I will roll out of the gate as soon as the ball drops in Times Square and usher’s in the year 2012. I will cover and write about sports with clarity, dignity and respect. If it appears at times that I am giving Mike Tomlin or any other African-American the benefit of the doubt, close your eyes and count to ten because I probably will be, Happy New Year.(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: or 412-583-6741.
