Emerging Players never stopped believing, says Sinclair

By on September 18, 2020

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, (CMC) – Off-spinner Kevin Sinclair said West Indies Emerging Players(WIEP) had a feeling they would have won the Super50 Cup after a stroke of fortune saw them squeeze into the semi-finals.They suffered a 10-wicket crushing at the hands of Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in their final preliminary game to finish on 18 points which left them second in Group B but were expected to be overhauled by Guyana Jaguars, on 16 points, especially with last year’s losing finalists facing minnows United States in their final game.But Jaguars suffered a stunning eight-run upset, leaving Emerging Players to finish second behind Group B winners Red Force.“We were watching the game on a flatscreen back when the US and Guyana was playing so when US beat Guyana we were overjoyed and overwhelmed,” Sinclair said after Emerging Players pulled off an astonishing record 205-run victory over Leeward Islands Hurricanes in Sunday’s final to win the title.“We knew we would have win this tournament because we come out and play good cricket. We just had to back we ability and keep doing what we [were] doing – nothing different, don’t change anything. “We as a team, we [played better cricket] than the rest of teams. We rotate the strike better, we bowled in partnerships, we take wickets. Different little things that other teams didn’t do we stuck out and do, so I must say it was an all-round effort by the team.”Emerging Players, hastily cobbled together just prior to the start of the tournament, opened their campaign with a defeat when Jaguars beat them off the last ball of the game by two wickets.However, they went on a four-game winning streak to surge up the standings, before going winless in their last three matches, suffering two defeats and a no-result due to rain.In the semi-final, they shed their underdogs tag to upset Barbados Pride and book their spot in the final.Sinclair, who picked up 13 wickets in the tournament including a destructive four-wicket haul in Sunday’s final, said the team had been full of self-belief right throughout.“I really feel overjoyed. I must say thanks to the Almighty for being with us right through the tournament because there were moments when teams looked like they would have beat us and then we just stuck [it] out and something happened and we just pulled it over [the line],” he explained.“I think the guys played good cricket right through – the fielding was on top, the bowling was really tight and the batting just had to keep going.”Head coach Floyd Reifer, who oversaw the senior West Indies side this year, came in for praise from Sinclair.“Floyd Reifer and the management team worked really hard with us in terms of the fielding and the all-round game and even the mental aspect of the game, so I must say it was all-round [good] tournament for me and the guys.”last_img read more

Integrity Commission Plans Quick

By on September 17, 2019

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 5 Nov 2014 – Around middle of November is when the Deputy Governor will know when she has to participate in an inquiry related to the scandalous situation at the Grand Turk Cruise Center. While Anya Williams has been cleared of breaking any laws of the Integrity Commission ordinance, it is a little less certain if whatever role or action she demonstrated at the harbour on August 7th, 2014 was against the Code of Conduct for Persons in Public life. Under the Acts of Corruption section of the Code, it says: Public officers must avoid any action which might give an appearance of corruption or the possibility of corruption. Under the Dealing with the Public Section of the Code it says: Public officers must deal with the public and their affairs fairly, efficiently, promptly, effectively, courteously and sensitively, to the best of their ability. Director Eugene Otuonye, QC flat out declined expounding on the now criminal case against the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Finance, Athenee Harvey who is charged with being in breach on two counts in that same GT Cruise Center matter where it is alleged she got away with not paying Customs Duty on goods brought in; Harvey’s court appearance is December 1st this year and it is explained in a media report that any recommendation of the Commission will be given to the Governor, who will make the determination as it relates to the Deputy Governor.

She has become one of the top leading actress of Bollywood and now the 26-year-old is all ready to set her foot into the Telugu film industry with SS Rajamouli’s period action film RRR which also stars Jr. NTR and Ram Charan in the lead.A day prior to Alia’s 26th birthday, Rajamouli announced that she and Ajay Devgn would be a part of RRR. On the day, Alia shared her excitement and told the media that now her wish has been fulfilled as she always wanted to work with the Baahubali series filmmaker.”Now, I am doing the preparation for it. I can’t reveal details of the film because I don’t know whether I am supposed to talk about the film, but… I am feeling really grateful as I wished in my heart that I wanted to work Rajamouli sir and that wish has been fulfilled now, so I feel immense gratitude. It’s my first time to work in the South Indian film industry, so I am really excited,” Alia Bhatt, who turned 26 on March 15, said on being asked about being a part of RRR.RRR will tell a fictitious story based on two freedom fighters. The film will release on July 30, 2020, in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam and other Indian languages simultaneously.Apart from this announcement, the teaser of Alia’s upcoming film Kalank has got an immensely positive response from the audience. After that she will feature in Brahmastra opposite her love of life Ranbir Kapoor.Asked if she she has set a new benchmark for herself by doing such big films, she said: “Whenever I do any film, I first see what is my character in the film and who is the director of the film. I think it’s not important to remember that what benchmark I have set for myself.”I feel that playing my character honestly is important and what my director wants me do with that character is important than anything else, so I don’t know what benchmark I have created, but now I just want to create something good for my next film with lot of honesty.”(With IANS Inputs) RelatedAlia Bhatt celebrates 26th birthday with Karan Johar and boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor [PHOTOS]RRR story revealed and release date announced by SS RajamouliAlia Bhatt showed a lot of attitude on Kalank sets: Varun DhawanRRR movie press meet live: Rajamouli confirms Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Samuthikarani, Daisy Edgar Jones’ roleslast_img read more

Civil Engineers Say Texas Needs A Statewide Flood Plan

By on September 2, 2019

first_img Listen Civil engineers across Texas say the state needs a comprehensive flood mitigation plan. That’s one of multiple recommendations for dealing with flooding in the post-Harvey era described in a new report from the Texas chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers.The group says lawmakers should find the money for the statewide plan, along with putting more money into the state’s struggling dam safety program. The report cites a 2008 state audit that concluded the program was “not able to accomplish its statutory mandate to ensure the safe construction, maintenance, repair and removal of dams” in Texas.Houston engineer Michael Bloom, who helped with the report, says another idea is making flood risk maps more nuanced than they currently are.“Those maps could be enhanced to show multiple sources of flooding,” he says, “and maybe slightly more detail in terms of the gradation of risk.”For example, Bloom says, people should know if their flood risk is near zero, or more like 10 or 20 percent over a certain period of time.The report also calls for a more regional approach to planning, saying “flood water does not respect political boundaries.” 00:00 /00:49 X center_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Courtesy of U.S. Air Force, Tech Sgt.
