Windies v Bangladesh

A century stand between Kieron Pollard and Denesh Ramdin rescued an imploding West Indies and spurred them to a three-wicket win over Bangladesh in the first one-day international (ODI) at the National Stadium yesterday.

Pollard and Ramdin compiled 145 runs for the sixth wicket to pull the home team from the jaws of defeat following a top-order batting collapse that left them reeling on 34 for five.

Pollard started slowly but accelerated his innings later to finish with a top score of 89, while Ramdin scored 74, starting quickly, but curbing his enthusiasm later in the innings.

WICB favours Arthur as new coach

Tue, Aug 19, '14


WICB Under Scrutiny

Just days after the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) changed the regional selection panel, they continued their house cleaning yesterday by removing Ottis Gibson as coach of the regional side.

The former all-rounder, who played two Tests and 15 One-Day internationals for the Windies, served England as bowling coach from late 2007 until he came back home to take charge of the regional unit in February 2010.

Information reaching the T&T Guardian is that he was likely to be replaced by for the former South Africa and Australia coach Mickey Arthur. The South African, Arthur recently finished his duties with the Jamaica Tallawahs in the Limacol Caribbean Premier League T20 tournament.

West Indies Look to Prolong Bangladesh's Woeful Run

Tue, Aug 19, '14


Windies v Bangladesh

St. George's: West Indies and Bangladesh commence a three-match One-Day International series at the Queen's Park Stadium in Grenada on Wednesday with the home side heavily favoured to extend the tourists' miserable record in 2014.

Despite several encouraging performances in a 95-run win in their lone warm-up fixture against a Grenada XI on Sunday, Bangladesh will be hard-pressed to challenge a Caribbean side brimming with big-name international players, all of whom will be match fit given their participation in the just-concluded second season of the Caribbean Premier League T20 franchise tournament.

Soggy end betrays smart start

Tue, Aug 19, '14



The second edition of the CPL had crowds and runs aplenty, but concluded with an anti-climax.

For the first match of the Limacol Caribbean Premier League for 2014, the clouds hovered all game without a drop of rain falling. But in the last match, the grand finale, showers spoiled the party, allowing Messrs Duckworth and Lewis to decide the outcome of the game with just 25 balls left to be completed. For several minutes before Kieron Pollard and his Barbados Tridents emerged on the field to celebrate their victory at Warner Park in St Kitts, television viewers and those in the packed audience stared at an empty field. The covers were removed, but there was no sign that play was about to resume. It later turned out there was a dispute about the application of Duckworth-Lewis, leading the losing Guyana Amazon Warriors to contest the outcome.
