Baptiste confident of Windies win

first_img VERY GOOD CHANCE “What we know is that we are still in with a very good chance of winning this Test match and we plan to dig deep and give all we got to get over the line once we get in play tomorrow. It would require patience and application and we are up for it. “This is a young team and it would be great to come here to Sri Lanka and win a Test match. What would be special is it would be the West Indies’ first win over here.” West Indies are set to resume the final day on 20 for one in pursuit of 244 for victory, with Shai Hope unbeaten on 17. They lost Kraigg Brathwaite cheaply for three on the stroke of tea on the third day, which also saw no play in the final session also because of rain. The game has been a low-scoring one, with Sri Lanka managing 200 in their first innings and 206 in their second, and West Indies mustering only 163 in their first innings. Baptiste praised West Indies’ effort in the game and said a successful run chase would be complete a strong overall performance. “All in all, bowling wise and fielding wise, we’ve been very good in this Test match so all we need to do is cap it off with a good batting performance,” Baptiste stressed. West Indies trail 0-1 in the series after crashing to an innings defeat inside four days in the opening Test in Galle. -CMC West Indies remained upbeat about winning the second and final Test even though the penultimate day at the P. Sara Oval was washed out by persistent rain yesterday. Overnight rain and then steady showers throughout the day ensured that the covers remained on, and match officials were forced to call off play around 3 p.m., with parts of the outfield under water. However, interim coach Eldine Baptiste said despite the setback, West Indies were still confident of putting on a strong batting display during today’s final day to win the contest. “There is nothing we can do about the rain. We have no control over the weather,” he said.last_img read more

first_imgFIFA ethics judges open case against Valcke ZURICH (AP): FIFA ethics judges have formally opened a case against Jerome Valcke, who faces a nine-year ban from football. The ethics committee’s judging chamber says it “decided to institute formal adjudicatory proceedings” against FIFA’s former secretary general after studying a prosecution file sent by ethics investigators. The judges acted one day after extending Valcke’s 90-day interim ban by 45 days. Valcke is charged with several violations of the FIFA code of ethics while serving as President Sepp Blatter’s top aide since 2007. The charges include accepting gifts and conflicts of interest. The judges gave no details of the case, citing Valcke’s “privacy rights and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty”. Man United recall winger DORTMUND, Germany (AP): Belgium winger Adnan Januzaj was returning to Manchester United yesterday after his one-year loan spell at Borussia Dortmund was cut short after half a season. The Bundesliga side confirmed that the clubs agreed on “an immediate return”, and that the “last contractual details between the parties are being sorted out”. The 20-year-old Januzaj joined Dortmund at the end of the last transfer period but failed to make his mark with the side. He played just 166 minutes as a substitute in six Bundesliga games, managing four shots at goal, and scoring none. He played two full games in five Europa League appearances for Dortmund, but again didn’t score. Football’s rule-makers discuss approving video replay trials LONDON (AP): Soccer’s rule-makers are discussing whether to approve trials of video replays to assist referees who find it harder to keep up with the faster, modern game. The International Football Association Board first approved technology in 2012 that was limited to systems determining whether the ball crossed the goal-line. But the FIFA-dominated panel met yesterday in London to decide whether to allow the first official in-game tests with video replay systems that could, for example, help to inform referees on whether a penalty should be awarded, a player should be sent off, or consider violent conduct they might have missed. It is “physically harder for referees to keep up,” and high-tech assistance is proving essential, English Football Association chief executive Martin Glenn said. Kiwis beat Lankans by three runs in T20 MOUNT MAUNGANUI, New Zealand (AP): Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson each made half centuries in a 101-run opening partnership to help New Zealand beat Sri Lanka by three runs in the first Twenty20 international between the teams yesterday. Guptill scored 58 from 34 balls to give New Zealand the high-tempo start they needed after Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bowl first. Williamson supported him with 53 from 42 balls to lead New Zealand to 182-4. In reply, Danushka Gunathilaka made 46 and Milinda Siriwardana 42 to help Sri Lanka keep things close into the final over.last_img read more

Not only to attract schools from the Corporate Area, but islandwide, and going forward, we want to invite overseas high schools to participate as well,” he said.18-YEAR PARTNERSHIP”Mayberry has partnered with the ASAJ for 18 years and that speaks of commitment in sponsoring community development for the long-term and we appreciate it,” he added.High schools and university competitions are on for today’s opening day and prep and primary schools will compete on the final day. More than 60 schools (30 prep/primary and 33 high schools/universities) and over 600 swimmers are down to participate.Mayberry’s assistant vice-president of marketing, Anika Smith, told the gathering they are committed to swimming in Jamaica and called on other corporate entities to come on board.”Here at Mayberry, we value any role we can play in the development of our communities, especially our young people. We have recognised that sports provide a productive outlet for them. This swimming champion-ship has been the signature sponsorship for our company for the last few years. We want to grow the championship, and that’s why we invite other corporate partners to come on board and make it bigger and better,” she said.last_img read more

The private plane, which belonged to Roy Halladay, had just been removed from the shallow waters off Ben Pilot Point in New Port Richey where it crashed last Tuesday, November 7, 2017, killing the 40-year-old former Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies pitcher. (Douglas R. Clifford/Tampa Bay Times via AP)FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Roy Halladay was flying his tiny sport plane low over the Gulf of Mexico shortly before it slammed into the water and killed the retired star pitcher, witnesses told federal investigators.National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Investigator Noreen Price said on Wednesday that Halladay’s ICON A5 experienced a “high-energy impact” with the water. She said both flight data recorders were recovered and the plane did not have a voice recorder.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson View comments Rolled out in 2014, the A5 is an amphibious aircraft meant to be treated like an ATV, a piece of weekend recreational gear with folding wings that can easily be towed on a trailer to a lake where it can take off from the water.“The way that a lot of people described it is a Jet Ski with wings,” Stephen Pope, editor-in-chief of Flying magazine, told The Associated Press. “It’s really a play thing.”The man who led the plane’s design, 55-year-old John Murray Karkow, died while flying an A5 over California’s Lake Berryessa on May 8, a crash the NTSB attributed to pilot error.In other tweets, Halladay said he had dreamed about owning one of the planes. In a video on the company’s website, Halladay said that he had to talk his wife into letting him get one. The son of a corporate pilot, Halladay had been forbidden to take up aviation until the two-time Cy Young Award winner retired from baseball after the 2013 season.According to Pope, “the plane itself is great.” But Pope had concerns about Halladay, a relatively inexperienced pilot, taking the craft out over water at low altitude. The plane, however, was marketed as a craft that could do that.ADVERTISEMENT “They still think that that’s the way the airplane should be flown, and there are people in aviation who completely disagree with that,” Pope said. “They think you should not have a low-time pilot flying low over water. That’s a recipe for disaster.”Low flying was part of the problem when Karkow, the designer, crashed, according to federal investigators. Karkow was killed along with passenger Cagri Sever, the company’s newly hired director of engineering.The NTSB blamed pilot error for the crash, saying Karkow mistakenly entered the wrong canyon while flying over a California lake and was unable to correct in time, striking the canyon wall.Another A5 crashed in April, making a hard landing in the water off Key Largo, Florida, injuring the pilot and his passenger. The pilot told investigators the plane descended faster than he expected.Halladay’s ICON A5 went down around noon last Tuesday off the coast of Florida, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said.    /kgaSports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set According to Price, Halladay had been a licensed pilot since 2013 and logged about 700 hours of flight time before Tuesday’s crash near Tampa. She said a preliminary report on the cause of the incident would likely be issued in seven to 10 days, but the full investigation could take up to two years.Price said it was too early to say whether Halladay’s crash was related to two earlier crashes this 2017 of A5s, one of which killed both the plane’s chief designer and test pilotFEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smog“Every accident is different. They are very complex. So as we move forward in the factual finding phase, if we see anything that we believe might connect it to previous accidents, we will certainly look at that. And if we see anything that we think is unsafe, we will make recommendation immediately,” Price said during a news conference in New Port Richey.The 40-year-old former Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies pitcher had been the proud owner of an ICON A5. He owned the plane for less than a month, and was among the first to fly the model. In one of many enthusiastic tweets about the plane, Halladay said it felt “like flying a fighter jet.”last_img read more

Michigan beats Purdue to win 2nd straight Big Ten Tournament

first_img“He had a couple of drives that didn’t go down for him, and he had a couple of 3s where he could never get back-to-back pullups or back-to-back pull-up 3s to get into that rhythm,” Purdue coach Matt Painter said.This Michigan team has been coach John Beilein’s best on the defensive side since he took over in Ann Arbor in 2007. It starts with the sophomore Simpson harassing opponents’ best ball-handlers.The Wolverines seemed content to let Haas have room inside as long as they were able limit Purdue’s 3s. Purdue entered the game shooting 42 percent from 3. The Boilermakers finished 4 for 17 from behind the arc.On consecutive possessions early in the second half, the Wolverines forced turnovers by Purdue and turned them in transition 3s — one by Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman and one by Simpson. That put Michigan up 11 with 15:06 left, prompted Painter to call a timeout and had Wolverines fans screaming “Go Blue!”“He’s a pit bull,” Beilein said of Simpson. “We have a picture of a big, mean pit bull in our locker room for every game. And he’s that guy. He’s the one that loves to play defense.”Michigan, playing its fourth game, showed no signs of wear. The Wolverines shot 50 percent and committed five turnovers.Last season’s unlikely run to the tournament championship by Michigan was as an eighth seed and it started with a harrowing plane accident near Ann Arbor, Michigan. No one was hurt, but everyone was shaken. Still, the team got to Washington and ripped off four straight wins to grab an NCAA bid.This one was less dramatic — though surely the Wolverines did not mind.BIG PICTUREMichigan: The Wolverines will enter the NCAA Tournament on a nine-game winning streak. Fifth-seeded Michigan (28-7) became the first team to repeat as Big Ten Tournament champs since Ohio State in 2010 and ’11.Simpson finished with 10 points, five assists and five rebounds.

Legal sports betting coming soon to several US states

first_imgCharts show states with laws on the books or laws under consideration. APWASHINGTON — A decision by the Supreme Court means American sports fans will soon have many more places to place legal bets on the results of football, baseball, basketball, hockey and other games.Five states have the edge in the race to legalize sports betting because they already passed laws contingent on the Supreme Court striking down the 1992 federal ban on such gambling, which the court did on Monday. And that doesn’t include Delaware, which could move quickly to expand the limited legal gambling it has already.ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next China population now over 1.4 billion as birthrate falls Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Weinstein rape trial MOST READ Dave Chappelle donates P1 million to Taal relief operations LATEST STORIES In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Several other states are likely to follow them in the coming months or years as they seek to capitalize on the economic growth and tax revenue that legal gambling can bring.

Delaware tried to legalize bets on individual games in 2009, but that ran afoul of the federal law. With the ban lifted, Delaware has the infrastructure in place through its lottery and casinos to quickly begin expanding its wagering options. State finance secretary Rick Geisenberger told The Associated Press on Monday that full-scale sports gambling could be available at Delaware’s three casinos by the end of June. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. center_img Voters in 2013 approved a constitutional amendment authorizing commercial casinos, and that amendment authorized the casinos to open sports books if the ban were lifted. However, further legislation is needed before any bets can be taken, and the legislature is considering several bills that would shape the sports gambling industry in the state. Major League Baseball, the NBA and casino interests have done intense lobbying in Albany in recent months.PENNSYLVANIADemocratic Gov. Tom Wolf signed a bill last year that authorized sports books at the state’s casinos along with mobile and online sports betting. But gambling industry leaders are skeptical that sports books will flourish in Pennsylvania because of the bill’s tax provisions: a 36 percent tax on gambling revenue and a $10 million licensing fee for sports book operators.WEST VIRGINIALawmakers this year approved sports betting at the state’s five casinos and on approved mobile apps in the event of a Supreme Court decision repealing the ban. Republican Gov. Jim Justice allowed the bill to become law without his signature and later announced that he’d reached a deal for casinos to pay a fee to professional sports leagues to help them protect the integrity of their games. Casino operators, however, said the meeting with Justice ended without a deal and that casinos continue to oppose the fee. The leagues had lobbied unsuccessfully for such language to be part of the law.OTHER STATESNevada is the only state that currently allows wagers on individual games. In addition to Delaware, Montana and Oregon were already allowed to have sports betting in a limited form through their state lotteries because of laws that predated the federal ban. Montana only offers fantasy football and fantasy racing bets, and Oregon’s lottery discontinued its only sports betting product years ago.
