CRICKET: Guyana’s Soaring Star – Shimron Hetmyer – By Albert Baldeo

SHIMRON HETMYER’S SOARING STAR! – By Albert Baldeo

Hetmyer’s century in the 2nd One Day against England was his fourth in just 22 ODIs.

Shimron Hetmyer

At his age (22), no other Caribbean batsman had even scored more than one. Sir Garfield Sobers, widely respected as the greatest cricketer who ever lived, said the youngster reminded him of himself. Sir Don Bradman had said the same of Sachin Tendulkar, who lived up to the comparison. Hetmyer must know that there can be no greater praise for a cricketer, and with it, no greater challenge. He must rise even higher.

Indeed, I saw the similarities long before Sobers uttered these words which will be the biggest test for the young Guyanese who hails from Cumberland, Berbice. I thought it was a video of Sobers batting when I first saw Hetmyer batting on TV.    Continue reading

SPORTS: US Football: Kaepernick WON. The NFL LOST – Massively

It doesn’t matter how much he made from the settlement; he bested the league.

Eric Reid and Colin Kaepernick: “Taking the knee”

Technically, Colin Kaepernick withdrew his collusion case. Technically, the NFL did not admit that it conspired to blackball Kaepernick from the league after he began taking a knee during the national anthem to protest racial injustice. But non-technically speaking, THE NFL LOST – Massively.

The terms of the settlement were not disclosed. But it doesn’t matter how much money Kaepernick ultimately receives from the NFL; what matters is that he bested a league that has a long history of pummeling its opposition in court, especially players.   

In a way, the NFL had no other choice. Last August, arbitrator Stephen Burbank rejected the NFL’s request to have the case dismissed. Continue reading

Cricket: Deryck Murray: Worrell Gave Blueprint to Beat England – Sherdon Pierre | Newsday

Deryck Murray: Worrell Gave Blueprint to Beat England

Sherdon Pierre | Newsday – Trinidad

“If you wanted to be considered equal to the English cricket team, you had to be twice as good – not only on the field but twice as good off the field.”

Deryck Murray yesterday recalled the words of cricket legend and West Indies’ first black captain Sir Frank Worrell when they first met. Murray was speaking at History Fest 2019 held at the Alma Jordan Library, University of West Indies, St. Augustine.

The topic of discussion was experiences of cricket, colonialism and nationalism.         Continue reading

CRICKET: West Indies Revival: win Second Test vs England by 10 wickets

A Caribbean triumph that the cricket world can rejoice in witnessing

It was probably fitting that the series should be clinched with a six.

It was probably reflective of the balance of power that John Campbell, playing his second Test, should thrash a delivery from James Anderson, playing his 147th, over wide mid-on to wrap up a three-day victory. It underlined the dominance of West Indies and illustrated the confidence they have in their themselves. It was the young and strong mauling the ageing and decaying.

It’s taken seven days to settle this series. One week to prick the bubble of this ‘new’ England and the silly talk of ‘total cricket’. One week to revive hopes in the Caribbean game.

Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Roston Chase bags eight as West Indies crush England

A rampaging Roston Chase tore through England’s batting line-up to hand West Indies a comprehensive 381-run victory inside four days in the first Test in Barbados, putting them 1-0 in the three-match series.

Chase finished with career-best Test figures of 8 for 60 off 21.4 overs to almost single-handedly bowl England out for 246 in their second innings but, in truth there were many more architects of the West Indies’ victory.      Continue reading

CRICKET: West Indies cricketers set to win First Test against England in 2019 tour

Jason Holder celebrates double century against England

Inspired Jason Holder hits double century as wicketless England toil

 First Test, day 3: West Indies 289 & 415-6dec; England 77 & 56-0
 Holder unbeaten on 202 batting at No8

Ever so politely – for Jason Holder is a polite man – West Indies’ captain redoubled the torment of an England team who could score only 77 runs on Thursday and take no wickets on Friday. Holder, batting at No 8, hit a double century, only the third man in Test history to do that from there; Shane Dowrich hit his third Test century; and England toiled for four hours 40 minutes on this puzzling surface.          Continue reading

Cricket: Alvin Kallicharran Awarded British Empire Medal – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine + video

Alvin Kallicharran is Honored With British Empire Medal

Alvin Kallicharran

It was August 2015 at Idlewild Park in New York. There were a number of greats of West Indies cricket. At the end of the game the young cricketers wanted to speak to only one of them. He willingly obliged and for the next few minutes he had them under his spell. Alvin Kallicharran spoke about the need for discipline, about keeping oneself fi t and above all to never to give up, even when a mountain is staring at you.

The youngsters listened intently and at the end of his motivational speech they gave him a warm applause.
