CRICKET: Can Nicholas Pooran Do For the West Indies What Eon Morgan Has Done For England! – By Tony McWatt

By Tony McWatt

Nicholas Pooran

Now that he has been appointed captain of the West Indies ODI and T20 teams, Trinidad-born Nicholas Pooran might be seeking to emulate the outstanding accomplishments of England’s white-ball cricket skipper Eon Morgan. The question to be asked and answered is, can he?

Eoin Morgan’s tenure as England’s white-ball captain began ignominiously with the team having endured a most disappointing campaign at the 2015 ICC World Cup. Since then, however, Morgan has led England to championship victory at the 2019 ODI World Cup. The country’s first captain to ever do so.

Morgan was also at the helm for England’s top-four finishes at the 2016 and 2021 T20 World Cups. Indeed, since 2015 and under Morgan’s leadership, England has also been consistently ranked among the world’s top three teams in both of the ODI and T20 formats.          Continue reading

CRICKET: Analysis: West Indies’ England Test Series squad selections – Four Day Championships

 By: By Tony (McWatt) and Reds Perreira

Stabroek News — February 20, 2022

The first two completed rounds of the 2022 Caribbean Regional Four-Day Championships would have presented the Desmond Haynes led Selection Panel with much food for thought to chew on in terms of their choices for the West Indies 13-member squad to face England in the forthcoming three-Test series.

With Head Coach Phil Simmons still currently away in India, it was left to his fellow selectors, Chairman Desmond Haynes and his sidekick Ramnaresh Sarwan, to observe player performances during the Four-Day Championships first two rounds as they pertained to eventual choices for the forthcoming Tests against England. In some instances, they would have been very pleased by what they saw, in others overly disappointed.              Continue reading

USA: Football: Los Angeles Rams vs Cincinnati Bengals – Super Bowl LVI (2022)

| Super Bowl LVI Game Highlights – Video – Some Comments on the YouTube entry:

Hats off to the Rams. Well deserving. Stafford spent so many years on a mediocre Lions team. LA finally got their Rams back a couple years ago that left in 1994. This was a feel good story.

Cooper Kupp cemented himself as an LA legend in one season, and proved his doubters wrong in the biggest stage of all, congrats to our MVP

Congrats to the Rams! I am proud of what the Bengals did this year. Not many thought they would go to the SB, so congrats to them for accomplishing so much.

CRICKET: Holder’s helmet trick seals the T20 series for Windies vs England + video highlights

Jason Holder gets helmet trick – 4 wickets in 4 balls

Watch “Highlights | West Indies v England | Holder Takes 4 Wickets in 4 Balls! | 5th Betway T20I” 
Windies Cricket Channel – 31 January, 2022 – http://Windiescricket.com

(ICC) Jason Holder claimed four wickets in four balls in front of an ecstatic home crowd in Barbados, to put a very personal seal on an outstanding series win for West Indies. In a pulsating finale at Bridgetown, Holder built on a career-best haul of 4 for 30 from the left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein, to outlast an England team that was once again left to rue its own shortcomings at the death, as they succumbed by 17 runs to lose the series 3-2.

England were set 180 for victory, after a two-paced batting display from West Indies, in which Kieron Pollard and Rovman Powell cracked 66 runs from the final four overs to re-ignite an innings that had gone flat during a masterful display of legspin from Adil Rashid.
