Barnwell hammers scorching century to propel DCC past Everest

first_imgChristopher Barnwell smashed a belligerent century to power the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) to a commanding eight-win over the Everest Cricket Club (ECC) in their Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA)/GISE/Star Party Rental/Trophy Stall first-division, two-day encounter on the final day at the DCC ground, yesterday. It was an exhibition of six hitting from the burly right-hander who hammered his side to what seemed like an unlikely victory which sent the club’s supporters into a frenzy.Set  193 for victory from 19 overs, DCC began like a house on fire and raced to 51 in the sixth over with Sherfane Rutherford (12) and Raymond Perez giving their side the ideal start.Christopher Barnwell thumps the sky after reaching his century and winning and winning what appeared to be an unlikely match for his side (Royston Alkins photo)Skipper Barnwell then stepped to the plate and hammered an unbeaten 103 which was decorated with 12 maximums and four fours to see his side to victory inside 14 overs. The skipper had support from Perez (32) and Joshua Persaud who was there at the end with 37. Both men, along with the skipper took Everest’s bowlers to the cleaners to spur the GCA T20 champions to a clinical victory.The final day’s play began with DCC resuming on 194 – 6, trailing Everest by 88 runs with Perez returning to the crease on 63 after losing Barnwell (89) in the final over of the day on day one.He added 32 to his overnight total before falling to Gudakesh Motie five short of his maiden first-division century. His innings included eight fours and two sixes. DCC’s lower order then hung on to push their side past Everest’s first innings total with Nkosi Barker (37) and Ashmead Nedd (25) adding precious lower order runs before DCC was dismissed for 297, earning a lead of 15 runs.Motie was the pick of the bowlers, snaring 5-84 for the visitors.Everest, in their second innings, wiped off the deficit and reached 28 – 1 at the luncheon interval.Gudakesh Motie had a fine all-round match, smashing a fifty and bagging a. five for (Royston Alkins photo) Yadram (11) was the man dismissed, falling LBW to Rutherford as Tagenarine Chanderpaul and Adrian Sukwah who survived a few close shaves took Everest safety to the interval.The duo, after the break, took the score to 51 before Nedd bowled Sukwah (15).Chanderpaul, meanwhile, remained tight in defence and also struck the ball sweetly through the cover region. DCC, however, managed to strike twice with the score on 80 when off-spinner Beaton removed Akshaya Persaud (14) and first innings century maker Rajendra Chandrika (0) to leave the score on 80 – 4.Leg-spinner Steven Sankar got into the act and snapped up a double strike of his own by removing Ronaldo Renee (16) and Chanderpaul (42) for a knock which included six lovely timed fours.Those strikes left the score on 120 – 6. Sankar had a third when he dismissed Travis Mohammed (5).Motie all the while, who watched wickets tumble from the other end, started to free his arms and swatted the spinners for several boundaries to push the score along as he soaked up time while extending Everest’s lead. The left-hander then tore into Sankar and Carlton Jacques, smashing the duo out of the park before falling to the latter – the last man dismissed- for an entertaining 85 which included four fours and nine towering maximums.His innings propelled Everest to 207, earning a lead of 192. Rutherford ended with 3-15 while Sankar snatched 3-61 as the pick of the bowlers.last_img read more

Gordon’s ‘coming of age’ season

first_imgGuyana-born Canadian cricketer, Jeremy Gordon, has credited his latest season in the Toronto and District Super 9 as a “coming of age” run for him. Gordon, a 32-year-old seamer hailing from New Amsterdam, Berbice, was instrumental throughout the tournament for the Vikings where he picked up 30 wickets in the competition, including 2-46 in the final when he struck both times in his first over to set the foundation for a successful title defense for Vikings.“This season is a coming-of-age season for myself,” Gordon told Stabroek Sport, noting that he did a lot of work in the pre-season during the winter period which he credits for helping him achieve his goal. Gordon revealed that he had set the benchmark of taking 30 wickets in the competition and was so dedicated and determined to achieve his ambitions that he went so  far as to hire a personal coach.“I worked on my consistency, I worked on my fitness which I’m still working on by the way, and generally I kept things pretty simple and try to stay in the moment as much as possible,” Gordon explained. Gordon was pleased with his returns after bowling with the new ball where he struck almost every game and ended with an economical spell.The fast bowler said that he was humbled by a few games that were lost in the early stages but was proud of the way he, along with the team, came back to bring home the title. “We didn’t have any negatives really. We lost a few games early up in the season and we bounced back like any championship team would…the support I got for my teammates was unbelievable both on and off the field that definitely helped me and us achieve our objective which was to win our third straight title,” he said Reflecting on his performance, Gordon said he holds this season closer to his heart than most since he worked harder and reaped the rewards but was optimistic about expanding his range and playing in various leagues around the world including the Caribbean Premier League. Gordon has represented Canada in five One Day Internationals and two T20 Internationals from 2012 to 2014.last_img read more

At Least One Injured As Suspected Robbers Attack Enyimba Team Bus

first_imgAt least one player was left with serious injuries after suspected armed robbers waylaid the team bus of Enyimba as they made their way to Aba on Thursday.The Nigeria Professional Football League champions were heading back to their base following a 2-0 win against Adamawa United at the Pantami Stadium, Gombe, on Wednesday.The attack reportedly happened along the Enugu-Okigwe-Umuahia Expressway in Imo State.Players and officials reportedly fled into the nearby bush to escape the daredevil robbers who gained entrance into the bus by shattering the windshield and surrounding windows.Club sources say an unnamed player was left with cuts from the shattered glass but no other casualties were recorded as the robbers made away with cash and personal effects of the team.It is the second such attack the Aba-based side have faced recently after also enduring a similar attack near Okene, Kogi State in 2016 on their way to Kaduna for a Super Four Tournament.Incidents of NPFL clubs running into trouble on the roads are rife with clubs mostly travelling long distances by road due to financial constraints.In 2015 a bus attack left five Kano Pillars players with bullet wounds while travelling to Owerri.Last November, FC IfeanyiUbah were attacked by armed robbers, leaving several players critically injured and the bus driver with bullet wounds.RelatedNPFL: Gunmen in NYSC Uniforms Attack FC Ifeanyi Ubah Team Bus Enroute Kano (Graphic Pictures)November 29, 2019In “NPFl”VIDEO: Lobi Stars Players Narrowly Escape Death As Team Bus Goes Up In FlamesMarch 2, 2020In “Featured”Udoh Targets Continental Glory for Enyimba (AUDIO)January 11, 2019In “NPFl”last_img read more

Shameik Moore says ‘Wu-Tang: An America Saga’ reveals the authentic side of the iconic hip-hop group

first_imgHulu/Craig Blankenhorn(NEW YORK) — Shameik Moore plays a young Raekwon in the new Hulu series Wu-Tang: An America Saga. The 24-year old actor, singer and rapper tells ABC Radio that the Wu-Tang Clan series shows the authentic side of the group that its members never revealed in the past. “When cameras came, it felt like the FBI to these guys. So there wasn’t really showing or saying certain things to the camera,” he says. “[We] wasn’t gonna find out what made Method Man tick, what made Raekwon tick, what made RZA tick.” “On this show, you get more,” Moore continues. “You get what makes them tick. The stuff that they would never just show you, you know, in a documentary or just being themselves.”Moore worked with RZA previously when the Wu-Tang leader directed his upcoming film Cut Throat City, which also stars Wesley Snipes, Terrence Howard and T.I  The Get Down star says it was on the set of that movie that RZA decided he should play Raekwon.“He told me that he saw moments in that film, small moments, where I got upset or I got more serious and he was like, ‘I feel like you can play Raekwon based off of that.’”Ironically, Moore says as a child, he wasn’t allowed to listen to hip-hop.  However, he became a fan through watching the 2004 film You Got Served, starring Marques Houston and B2K.“I was in military school and Christian schools, like real strict environments growing up,” he recalls. “Then I got into hip-hop after I saw You Got Served.  That was a totally different generation of hip- hop at that point.” Wu-Tang: American Saga, also starring Erika Alexander from Living Single, premiered September 4 on Hulu.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Yaas, witch! As finale airs tonight, ‘Motherland: Fort Salem’ gets a second season

first_imgFreeform/David Bukach(LOS ANGELES) — Wednesday night is the first-season finale of Freeform’s Motherland: Fort Salem, a series set in an alternate, present-day America where witches are part of the U.S. military.  The show’s just been renewed for a second season, and star Jessica Sutton tells ABC Audio that she’s thrilled.“I was hoping and praying and just putting it out there in the universe…because the response has been so amazing and I’ve just been feeling so much love from the growing fandom,” she tells ABC Radio.“And yeah, I think all the girls [in the cast] were just feeling like there’s just so much more to explore in the world. And these characters…We want to know what happens to them!”Motherland is a very female-driven show that focuses on three young witch cadets; Sutton plays cadet Tally Craven. She believes that the show’s struck a chord with viewers because of the tight bond between her character and the other cadets in her unit, played by Taylor Hickson and Ashley Nicole Williams.“We’ve got this amazing fellowship, and I think ultimately at the end of the day, Motherland  — stripped of all its military bad-assery and the awesome empowerment that every character finds and undergoes –…it’s a love story,” she explains.In tonight’s finale, Sutton’s character makes a huge sacrifice, and there’s a major cliffhanger.  As for what she’s looking forward to in Season 2, Sutton says she’s “in the dark” about what will happen to Tally and her fellow witches. But, she adds, “I’m hoping that we see the unit’s dynamic changing, and understanding Tally’s power, because I feel like we were just touching on that.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Asylum applications up 150% in Mexico since US election

first_imghansslegers/iStock/Thinkstock(MEXICO CITY) — Mexico’s refugee agency, COMAR, reported a significant increase in the number of asylum applications the country has received since Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election in the United States.The report showed that Mexico received 150 percent more asylum applications than the same time period the previous year. According to the agency, it received 2,148 applications between November 2015 and March 2016, compared to 5,421 between November 2016 and March 2017.It is not clear how much of the jump is related to Trump’s presidency. Actions taken by the Obama administration last year to encourage more screening of refugees in Mexico — an effort to help with the flood of people leaving Central America — could also be a cause of the increase.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
