Windies could win 2016 World T20 – Croft

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC): Former West Indies pacer Colin Croft believes West Indies could win the International Cricket Council (ICC) World Twenty20 in India next year. However, Croft said that the regional side’s victory would depend on many computations and selections. “India 2016 is nine months away, but proper planning and selections are main keys for WI to win there, since WI’s one-day international and Test rankings are nearly on the floor,” he said. “Trinidad & Tobago’s Red Steel’s recent win in Caribbean Premier League 2015, beating similarly talented Barbados Trident, tells only one story, that a WI team consisting of several players from that final game, plus some from other teams, could bring WI further World T-20 success. “So, as suggested by the West Indies Cricket Board, let us accentuate the positive, if it exists.” LAST OPPORTUNITY He noted that some of the players have ongoing issues with the WICB and might not even be available for selection. “But realistically, ICC World T20 India 2016 could be the last opportunity for some of this present generation of WI cricketers to win any further world championships for some time in the future,” he said. The 2016 ICC World T20 is scheduled to be held in India from March 11 to April 3, 2016. Sri Lanka are the defending champions. WEST INDIES’ RANKING The former Guyanese cricketer said he was not surprised at the West Indies’ last international tournament win in Sri Lanka, when they won the World T20 in Sri Lanka in 2012. Noting West Indies’ ranking of number four with 17 points, behind Sri Lanka, Australia and India, Croft believes it’s possible for West Indies to be number one in T20 again. “Victorious T&T Red Steel has no Champions League competition to look forward to anymore, so Dwayne Bravo, Darren Bravo, Suleiman Benn, Kieron Pollard, Jason Holder, Kevon Cooper, Samuel Badree, Jason Mohammed, Ashley Nurse and Imran Khan – from the last CPL final – plus Sunil Narine and Chris Gayle, if he recovers from his medical issues, could be the nuclei for India 2016,” Croft said.last_img read more

Ramnarine supports CARICOM report

first_imgFormer president of the West Indies Players Association (WIPA), Dinanath Ramnarine, has described as spot on, the recent recommendations of the Review Panel of the CARICOM Cricket Governance Committee, which, among other things, has called for the dissolution of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB). The panel, set-up in conjunction with the WICB, listed several shortcomings of the current board structure and management of the WICB, and its attendant territorial boards of Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, the Windward Islands, the Leeward Islands and Guyana. This, the review panel said, has resulted in continued decline of West Indies cricket, which languish at the bottom of the premier International Cricket Council Test and one-day international rankings. “I can see the thinking, and the train of thought of the review panel, and believe the recommendations hit a lot of nails on the head,” Ramnarine told The Gleaner. “There is great urgency for restructuring, especially at the territorial board levels, which continue to operate at a level that does not support good governance.” urged Ramnarine. “For example, when last has Guyana had a proper, democratically elected board? “The current structure of the WICB, and general structures of West Indies cricket, are weak, and has failed the people of the Caribbean, and I believe the time has come for serious change,” he added. Chaired by University of The West Indies, Cave Hill Campus principal, Professor Eudine Barriteau, the review panel said the current structure of West Indies cricket was “incapable” of delivering desired results.  “The WICB and Territorial Boards have been able to ignore the extent to which their operations lack transparency and accountability, because the current structures do not respect these basic tenets of good governance within their operations,” said the panel. “Our main recommendation (therefore) is that the Board should be immediately dissolved, and, all current members resign, and an Interim Board selected.” The Interim Board, the review panel recommended, should then work with a change management expert to install a new governance framework. The panel also went on to explain that its suggestions are not too far from that of which Australia instituted in recent times, as a means of moving with a changed global business landscape. Ramnarine, a former director of the WICB when he was head of WIPA, also commended the suggestion on an Interim Board. “It is a good suggestion, and probably the best way forward at this time,” Ramnarine said. “The board currently lacks the requisite persons with the right expertise to chart the way forward.” The five-member review panel also included former West Indies player, Deryck Murray, Sir Dennis Byron, president of the Caribbean Court of Justice, president of the Grenada Cricket Association, Dwain Gill, and president of the Caribbean Development Bank, Warren Smith.last_img read more

Big three want more Champs tickets

first_imgWHILE there may be a shortage of grandstand tickets for Saturday for the Inter-Secondary School Sports Association-GraceKennedy Boys & Girls’ Athletics Championships, ISSA President Dr Walton Small has reiterated that there are more than enough for every other day of the event held inside the National Stadium.”ISSA has no issue with tickets, except for Saturday. We have ample tickets for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. We have ample tickets for the bleachers, and we encourage people to use the bleachers,” Small told The Gleaner following Friday evening’s RJR Sports Foundation Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year Awards at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel.Small was responding to queries based on the complaints by a trio of old boys’ associations from Calabar High School, Jamaica College and Kingston College, known by the moniker ‘Three the Hard Way’.David Miller, president of the Calabar Old Boys’ Association; Dr Patrick Dallas, president of the Kingston College Old Boys’ Association; and Collin Greenland, treasurer of the Jamaica College Old Boys’ Association, said they had concerns about the distribution of tickets for Champs last year.”There appears to be no structural way of dealing with tickets. Why should we, who spend $20 million per year preparing for Champs, be given the same number of tickets … . Why should (a school) who have no investment have the same talk,” said Miller.”We are not saying that we should get all of it. What we are saying is that what happened last year, something was not transparent about the allocation of tickets,” Dr Dallas added.The group said their organisation wanted more Champs tickets, but an email sent to Dr Small, requesting a meeting, had been met with a brusque reply that their concerns be directed to ISSA via the principals of their respective schools.”We feel disrespected because we didn’t get an audience. We don’t believe that we should go through our principals. We are an alumni association … not a sixth-form association,” said Dr Dallas.Dr Small said there was no intent to be disrespectful.”It’s unfortunate that they view it that way. We (ISSA) cater to a variety of organisations and if every organisation demands that they want to meet with us, you can see what would happen. The structure at ISSA – once it’s coming from schools – we refer everything through the principals. It does not matter what it is,” he said.The Old Boys’ group pointed out that collectively, they invest as much as $45 million towards the development of their respective schools’ athletes.”Our three schools together are a huge part of the following for Champs. It is no coincidence that KC, Calabar and JC, between them, have won over 90 per cent of the Champs,” Dr Dallas added.Greenland noted that their schools helped to make Champs what it is.”The day would never come when we would withdraw from Champs because we cherish the thing, but there really wouldn’t be a Champs without one of these schools,” he said.Meanwhile, Dr Small said subsequent to the group’s meeting with The Gleaner, he had got approval from his board to meet with them.He also added that the window for Champs tickets is opened at the end of football season. Requests are taken via email.He said the demand was overwhelming, and pointed out that the grandstand seats only 5,000 persons.”After we give our sponsors and special guests, all we have are 2,000 tickets to sell. Unless they expand the stadium, we will not be able (to accommodate more) and, therefore, we encourage people to come and use the bleachers. That is where I stay. Come and share time with the president in the bleachers,” Dr Small said.last_img read more

Montague pleased with first-day execution

first_imgChairman of the organising committee for the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletic Championships, Colleen Montague, says she was pleased with the execution of the first day of the five-day championships, currently taking place inside the National Stadium. Montague admitted some disappointment that spectators continue to shun the opening day of the championships despite the free admittance, but believes there are some positive signs as she looks forward to another successful staging of the event. “Things are going very well, everyone has carried out their part, it was an amazing effort on everyone’s part to ensure that everything was in place for today (yesterday),” Montague told The Gleaner. “We had some very minor hiccups, but we are pleased with where we are. “We know that each day is different. Tomorrow (today) brings another complexion because all the schools will be out, and by Friday, the spectators will all be out, so every day brings a different aspect to Champs, and we just take it day by day,” Montague added. “We take it year by year, and what we have been seeing on all of the days is a vast improvement over a few years ago. We are taking it step by step, and we are working with all of our stakeholders. In a few years we will see even more improvements on these days,” she said. The Wolmer’s Girls’ School principal was also disappointed that the demand for grandstand tickets could not be met, but reminded fans that there will be an opportunity to watch the event on big screen outside the National Stadium’s main gate on Saturday. “We are very unhappy that we are unable to satisfy the demands of so many persons who want to be here with us,” Montague said. “We will be having a screen outside for persons who come and aren’t able to get inside, they will be able to view it and experience it there.”last_img read more

INSPORTS all-island football championship kicks off October

first_img The agency is seeking out a certain amount of talented athletes from each parish. As mandated by Minister of Culture, Gender Affairs Entertainment and Sport Olivia Grange, these youngsters who are identified will be channelled into INSPORTS’ extensive coaching programmes to further develop their technique and increase the possibility for national selection. The state agency’s thrust behind establishing structured competitions is also in an effort to realise the health, social and economic benefits of sports. By improving performance standards and developing sports facilities, INSPORTS is increasing the potential for organised football to make significant social contributions. Andrews explains that this is a key element in the formulation of INSPORTS’ policy on sports. “The social impact of organised football, and sports in general, cannot be underestimated. Sports aids in the development of personal skills of individuals and teaches values such as sportsmanship, tolerance, self-discipline, team spirit and strength of character,” he said. “In this way sports can play a role in tackling social challenges experienced by communities, including anti-social behaviour, substance abuse and social exclusion. We are counting on community support to continue to make our programmes a success.” The INSPORTS All-island Football Championship will commence in October at the Alva playing field in St Ann. KINGSTON: In keeping with its strategic operational plan regarding development of football at the community level, the Institute of Sports (INSPORTS) will again be hosting the all-island football championship to begin in October, where the winning team will receive $500,000 and the INSPORTS all-island trophy. The main objective of the INSPORTS all-island football championship is to provide a structured medium through which youth from communities who are not registered in organised competitions can get an opportunity to display their talent for further development. The all-island competition has in excess of 14,500 participants across the island, many of whom are unattached youth. “We are targeting unattached youth not only to give them some structure, but through organised competitions, we are able to seek out and identify more talent,” said Ian Andrews, administrative director of INSPORTS. “We have found that very often, some of the best talents are among these youth. Similar to the Australian Institute of Sports, our aim is to identify, develop and produce world class athletes.” DEVELOP THEIR TECHNIQUElast_img read more

PLCA upset over absence of clubs

first_imgGeneral manager of the Premier League Clubs Association (PLCA), Pat Garel, said yesterday that the absence of clubs at the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) weekly press conference is “unacceptable’ and would not be “tolerated” in the future. Humble Lion FC and Waterhouse FC failed to send representatives to yesterday’s mandatory function. The Clarendon-based Humble Lion did not show, while Waterhouse’s manager turned up after the briefing was over. “It is embarrassing for the no-show of the clubs as the weekly press conference is mandatory. We will have to do something about it moving forward,” Garel told The Gleaner during the press conference at Red Stripe yesterday. “This can’t be tolerated and is unacceptable. The clubs that are selected to be in attendance were sent emails for them to be there two days prior to the holding of the press conference” she said. Struggling Waterhouse are scheduled to host Maverley-Hughenden FC in the feature game to be televised live on Television Jamaica (TVJ) on Sunday. “The absence of Waterhouse is really unacceptable as their game is a live television one. The sponsors won’t be pleased,” she asserted. Garel also claimed that she contacted an official of the Waterhouse club before the 10 a.m. start of the press conference and she was told that the manager and two players would be in attendance. Waterhouse’s manager, Doreen Thompson, who turned up an the end of the briefing, said she was informed very late. “I was informed late by the coach (Marvin Tate). I’m not a person who normally shows up late (for any function),” Thompson informed The Gleaner. In the case of Humble Lion, the club’s secretary, Daphne Taylor, said assistant coach Lenworth Gordon and captain Wolry Wolfe should have been the representatives. “We sent the assistant coach and Wolry Wolfe. At the moment, we don’t know why they did not turn up,” Taylor said when contacted. The other four clubs who were scheduled to attend the briefing – Maverley-Hughenden, Jamalco, Harbour View and Tivoli Gardens – were represented.last_img read more
