No Comments on Carlos Bravo goes on loan to Rayo Majadahonda

Selection intervention – Cameron, Nanthan never had board approval for Shiv’s inclusion in Australia series – report

No Comments on Selection intervention – Cameron, Nanthan never had board approval for Shiv’s inclusion in Australia series – report

first_img UNHAPPY SELECTORS ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC): A report into alleged interference in the selection process has determined that the two highest ranking officials of the West Indies Cricket Board, spoke without “approval” when they backed the retention of Shiv Chanderpaul for the Australia series. WICB president Dave Cameron and his vice-president, Emmanuel Nanthan, had supported Chanderpaul’s selection last May after the Clive Lloyd-led selection panel had decided to drop the veteran left-hander. In a media release on Saturday, the WICB said the findings of the report showed that both Cameron and Nanthan had spoken in personal capacities. “The findings stated that the actions of the president and vice-president to support the selection of Shivnarine Chanderpaul for the home series in May last year, were personal statements and were done without approval of the Board of Directors,” the release said. Chanderpaul was controversially left out of the squad for Australia series following a run of low scores in previous series against South Africa and England. According to media reports at the time, Cameron attempted to have Chanderpaul included against the will of selectors. The report, conducted by human resource specialist Colin Barnett, was commissioned by the WICB after head coach Phil Simmons controversially claimed last September that there had been “outside interference” in the selection of the one-day squad to tour Sri Lanka. Two other selection cases came under scrutiny of the report, namely the Test squad to Australia last December and the cancelled one-day international series against Zimbabwe. According to the release, the report found no discrepancies in these cases. “The other findings reported support the roles of the director of cricket (Richard Pybus) and the selectors and that they were following the existing selection policies and guidelines.” The report also put forward a list of recommendations to improve the overall selection process, among these the refining of selection policies, updating the terms of reference for selectors and advising the public on selection criteria. Simmons stunned the cricket fraternity ahead of the Test tour of Sri Lanka last year when he told a media conference that the selection of the tour had suffered from “outside interference”. The Trinidadian, who had then been only recently appointed, said he and chairman Lloyd had agreed on the need for Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard to be recalled to the ODI squad only to be outvoted by the three other selectors Eldine Baptiste, Courtney Walsh and Courtney Browne. Simmons said those with influence had interfered to ensure the two players remained sidelined. He was subsequently suspended for the Sri Lanka tour, but reinstated for the Australia series following an inquiry.last_img read more

No Comments on Charlie Smith on a cruise

first_img fitness level Last season’s beaten Inter-secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)-FLOW Manning Cup finalists, Charlie Smith High, cruised to a perfect four wins from as many matches with a comfortable 3-0 victory over St Andrew Technical (STATHS) at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex yesterday. They sit atop Group D with 12 points. They have scored 13 goals, while conceding once. Despite having a new-look team, Charlie Smith played with their customary flair in front of a passionate Arnett Gardens crowd, which cheered them for the full 90 minutes. The players left the best for last yesterday. In the second minute of injury time, Omario Fisher struck a 35 metres shot, which lit up the back of the net and left everyone talking about his moment of brilliance. His shot gave goalkeeper Jeadino Waite no chance. It was a case of hard work paying off for Fisher. “It was good and perfect. I was working for this (goal) a very long time,” said Fisher, who has notched three goals in three appearances in his first year of Manning Cup. “More and more goals is what I want for the season for the entire team and the staff,” stressed Fisher. It was an even contest leading up to the opening goal, when Ashawn Ricketts sent Charlie Smith ahead in the 56th minute after the goalkeeper failed to collect cleanly. Zamario Sinclair doubled their lead in the 60th minute. Coach Jerome Waite believes his team proved much fitter than their opponents. “The game wasn’t the best in the first half. We still have a lot of work to do in terms of decision-making, but after 60 minutes in the game, you could see where the fitness level of the Charlie Smith team came to life while the opponents faltered in that area,” he told The Sunday Gleaner. “The talent pool is minimal, based on what you have seen. It is not the best Charlie Smith team, but what they are showing is that they have a lot of character and fighting spirit. We expect them to continue as the season progresses,” Waite added. Meanwhile, STATHS coach, Alrick Clarke, said it wasn’t a bad performance, but thought “a few errors” cost them the game. “Hopefully, we will rebound again. This might have been our toughest game of the season,” Clarke assessed..
