Build Windies ODI squad around Brathwaite – Ambrose

first_imgFORMER West Indies bowling legend Sir Curtly Ambrose has called for the Barbadian opener Kraigg Brathwaite to be made a central figure in the regional team’s One Day International (ODI) squad on the heels of several impressive performances in the WICB Regional Super50 tournament.The Barbados Pride opener has been one of the most impressive batsmen on display so far, racking up a total of 462 runs, the second most in the competition behind Leeward Islands Kieran Powell. In nine matches Brathwaite has fired two centuries and three half centuries enroute to leading the team to the final against Jamaica Scorpions yesterday.The 24-year-old who made his ODI debut against Pakistan last year has made seven appearances since, the last coming against Zimbabwe in November.Ambrose is convinced a consistent inclusion for Brathwaite could bear fruit for the Windies.“I have to say that I am most impressed with Kraigg Brathwaite he hasn’t really been in the one day setup consistently. Many of us don’t think he is one day player and to have come into the Barbados Pride team and scored two centuries and a couple of half centuries and scored like 400 runs, to me that was marvelous,” Ambrose said.“I that is something that I believe we need in the West Indies senior team someone like Kraigg who can bat through the innings if possible and put the other big hitters bat around him.”last_img read more

Shafer scouts Notre Dame’s highly efficient red-zone offense

first_img Published on September 24, 2014 at 2:06 pm Contact Phil: | @PhilDAbb Notre Dame has come away with points every time it has advanced the ball inside an opponent’s 20-yard line this season.The No. 8 Fighting Irish (3-0), who battle Syracuse (2-1) at MetLife Stadium on Saturday night, are 14-for-14 in red-zone scores — 10 of which have been touchdowns. So far this season, the Orange’s defense has yielded seven scores, including three touchdowns, on nine opportunities in the red zone.“We try to play our best red-zone defense possible but they are a great offense,” SU head coach Scott Shafer said during the Atlantic Coast Conference coaches’ teleconference on Wednesday. “They’ve been spectacular in the red zone.”Notre Dame has been in tempo with its plays, Shafer said, and has been consistent in finding the dead spots in the opposing defenses.The keys for Syracuse’s defenders, the head coach added, will be to train and discipline their eyes well enough and then get their feet in the right spots. The need to understand that the field is compressed in the red zone is amplified by UND’s efficiency, he said, and the timing in the Irish’s passing game will be more precise.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“The job that Notre Dame has done is just unbelievable,” Shafer said. “We’ll have a tough task and a great challenge that we’re looking forward to, but (it’s) hard to be much better than they have been in the red zone.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Fifa’s Sepp Blatter victim of conspiracy, daughter says

first_imgFifa president Sepp Blatter is the victim of a conspiracy from “behind the scenes”, his daughter has told the BBC amid the corruption crisis gripping world football.”Nobody is without fault but (…) he’s not the person who is taking money,” Corinne Blatter said.Her comments come as key Fifa officials face a string of bribery charges.Mr Blatter, who has been re-elected as Fifa president, has not been implicated but faces calls to stand down.Asked whether she thought there was a conspiracy against Mr Blatter – who won re-election as head of world football’s governing body on Friday despite the current crisis – Corinne Blatter said: “I wouldn’t say from the Americans and the British, but certainly people working behind the scenes, yes absolutely.”She added: “I don’t know if you want to call them dark forces but I mean they really tried hard, they tried in September, October last year. How can Uefa who is saying ‘we are the strongest confederation’, how can they not put up a candidate?” Mr Blatter beat rival Prince Ali bin al-Hussein of Jordan on Friday in an election that was overshadowed by arrests and corruption allegations.In September 2014, Mr Blatter had come under pressure to quit after rejecting calls for a report into alleged World Cup bidding corruption to be made public.Corinne Blatter’s comments came as the head of the English Football Association called on Uefa president Michel Platini to unite Europe behind a collective boycott of the 2018 World Cup.And in further intrigue, South African newspapers reported on Sunday that the nation did pay $10m (£6.5m) to a football association led by a figure at the centre of the Fifa allegations, despite a week of denials.’Not taking money’ Corinne Blatter denied claims that the events of the last few days had left her father with no credibility.”All these things happened just to discredit him so that he would resign. But I can tell you in about [two or three] weeks no one will talk about it anymore.”Other news will be top and he’ll work normally, as he said yesterday at the press conference he had a great executive meeting and everyone is going to work together. He’s also the president of those who didn’t vote for him and they have to work together now.”And she denied again that Mr Blatter had taken any money.”All the money he earned he earned it by working and he is a hard working president. “All these people who say that he takes money I don’t know what kind of money he should take and he’s not the kind his character is not like that, he’s not taking any money.last_img read more
