first_imgA decision on the abandoned Group Two Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Under-20 Women’s qualifiers between hosts St Lucia and Jamaica’s Reggae Girlz on Thursday will not be reached until some time next week, according to a source at the CFU office.Jamaica Under-20 women defeated Grenada 5-0 in their opening game through a hat-trick from captain Khadija Shaw; and were already assured the top spot in the group after Grenada stopped St Lucia 4-0 in the group’s other game on Tuesday.However, their final game against the hosts on Thursday had to be abandoned after heavy rains in the eastern Caribbean nation left the field in an unplayable state. As a result, the game was called off just before the scheduled start.When The Gleaner contacted the CFU office yesterday, one administrator said the case had already been referred to the executive council, and a decision on the matter was not expected until sometime next week.According to the administrator, the Reggae Girlz are already assured of the top spot in the group and a place in the next round of the qualifiers and insisted that there was no need for supporters to be concerned.There are four qualifying groups in the regional qualifiers and the top team from each group is set to advance to the final round, along with the best runner-up in the three-team groups and the second best runner-up of the three groups, the runner-up of the four-team group and final-round hosts, Haiti.

WI Women seek to level series

first_img Their mistakes West Indies Women will be hoping to keep their five-match one-day international series against England Women alive when the teams meet in game four at Sabina Park today. The series currently sees West Indies trailing by 1-2 after losing the third game by 112 runs last Friday at the same venue. They have fought back before and captain Stafanie Taylor and her team will be looking to level the series today. After going down by five runs in the opener, which was played at the Trelawny Multipurpose Stadium, the West Indies rallied to take game two by 38 runs. “If history is anything to go by, I think we should bounce back,” said West Indies assistant coach Ezra Moseley.” It seems as if we like to come from behind.” Looking at the fourth game, Moseley believes that things will be different as the team has analysed their mistakes in game three. “I think the players realise the mistakes that were made, especially in the field,” Moseley said.” We dropped a few catches and allowed the English to run too many twos.” Moseley, who is deputy to head coach Vasbert Drakes, is also hoping that their batting performance will improve. “The pitch, hopefully, will be another good one to bat on, and I am expecting our batters to come to the party,” he said. Only three players made it to double figures in the West Indies’ paltry score of 108. They were opener Shaquana Quintyne, 21, Deandra Dottin, 20, and Shermaine Campbelle, 18. The team’s other front line players – Taylor, Hayley Matthews and Merrisa Aguillera – made nine, five and zero, respectively. Meanwhile, England captain Heather Knight believes that they can close out the series today and, according to her, that is their main intention.last_img read more

Hunting a ‘perfect game’

first_imgROSEAU, Dominica (CMC):West Indies enter the decisive third Test against Pakistan at Windsor Park today chasing the “perfect cricket game”, as they seek to notch their first series win over a higher-ranked side in five years and turn the corner on a worrying trend of results.A series, which started in disappoint-ment with a seven-wicket defeat at Sabina Park last month, suddenly took a turn for the better last week when the Windies produced a memorable performance to crush Pakistan by 106 runs at Kensington Oval and level the three-match series.And with the hosts on the verge of ending a protracted drought, captain Jason Holder told reporters that rather than feeling pressure, it was critical his side pulled all the various facets of their game together to execute over the next five days.”There’s no pressure. We’re in a situation where we’ve played some good cricket in this series so far,” a calm Holder said on the eve of the contest.”We haven’t been perfect, but we’re striving to play a perfect cricket game. Once we strive to do that and we get 99 per cent of that going right, I think we will be on the better side at the end of this game.”He added: “It always gives you confidence to win any cricket game. As I said before, there are still a few areas I would like to see them tighten up in. One is, for sure, our fielding, and I urge the guys to play a perfect cricket game, and there’s no better chance to do than in this final game.”West Indies were almost unrecognisable in the last Test in Barbados. On every occasion they found themselves in trouble, they fought back gallantly, before producing the ultimate bowling performance on the final day to dismiss Pakistan for a record-equalling venue-low 81.But even with the memories of the victory still fresh, Holder urged his side not to dwell on the win, but rather, focus on turning out an improved performance.”It doesn’t change anything for me [that this game is a series-decider]. I just take it as another cricket game,” Holder noted.West Indies’ last series victory over a higher-ranked side was when they beat New Zealand 2-0 in the Caribbean in 2012. Opener Kieran Powell is the only surviving member from that side.Since then, West Indies have lived in virtual drought, with just nine wins in 36 Tests since then, and six of those coming in series against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.Of the 13 series played since, the Caribbean side has lost nine.West Indies have retained the same 13-man squad from the last Test for the encounter here.SQUADSWEST INDIES: Jason Holder (captain), Kraigg Brathwaite, Kieran Powell, Jermaine Blackwood, Shai Hope, Vishal Singh, Shimron Hetmyer, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich, Alzarri Joseph, Shannon Gabriel, Devendra Bishoo, Miguel Cummins.PAKISTAN: Misbah-ul-Haq (captain), Ahmed Shehzad, Azhar Ali, Shan Masood, Babar Azam, Younis Khan, Asad Shafiq, Sarfraz Ahmed, Usman Salahuddin, Yasir Shah, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Asghar, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Abbas.last_img read more
