Ottley confident recharged Red Force can beat Scorpions

first_imgPORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): Captain Yannick Ottley says despite Trinidad and Tobago Red Force’s lacklustre start to the new Regional Four-Day season, they are still confident of beating Jamaica Scorpions in the fourth round of the tournament, which bowls off next weekend. Red Force lie one from bottom in the six-team championship on 27 points after a win, a defeat and a draw in their opening three matches. Ottley said the recent short break following the end of the third round had given his side a chance to regroup, and there was a great vibe in the camp ahead of the trip to Kingston. “We have had a couple rest days and a few practice sessions, but the guys have been doing some one-on-one work with the coaches and identifying a few areas we need to improve on, so it is good to see guys working on their skills and trying to be better at what we do,” Ottley told the Trinidad Express. “We are pretty good at the moment. The team is really gelling together. There is a lot of unity in the team. We are like a family and we just need to keep supporting each other.” Red Force made a strong start with a convincing nine-wicket victory over Windward Islands Volcanoes at Queen’s Park Oval, but then showed little enterprise as they slumped to a heavy 292-run defeat to arch-rivals Barbados Pride at the same venue in the following round. Rain then ravaged their third-round home encounter against Leeward Islands Hurricanes, allowing limited play in the game. Kyle Hope (86) and debutant Isaiah Rajah (69) both struck half-centuries in an opening stand of 162, but Red Force slumped to 287 for eight in their first innings before rain wrecked the game. POSITIVE SHIFT Ottley said that outing had signalled a positive shift from the batting woes they endured against Pride. “With that game against the Leewards, we started well with the bat, and it could have been two wins and one loss at home, and I think that would have been a pretty good start for us, but the batting has really come along well [since the Pride game] and we just have to continue to play together as a team and make sure we keep the attitude right,” he pointed out. Scorpions are one place above Red Force on 28.6 points with two-time reigning champions Guyana Jaguars leading the standings on 33.6 points.last_img read more

Nesta Carter free to run, says IAAF

first_imgAndre Lowe, Special Projects Editor – Sports The legal team representing embattled Jamaican sprinter Nesta Carter is currently finalising its submission to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to appeal the sprinter’s disqualification for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. However, Carter is allowed to compete pending the outcome of the CAS proceedings, this after the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) received confirmation from the IAAF outlining that the sprinter had not been issued a suspension after retroactively testing positive for the prohibited substance methylhexaneamine. JAAA president Dr Warren Blake told The Gleaner yesterday that he had received confirmation from the IAAF after writing to CEO Olivier Gers and enquiring about Carter’s eligibility to compete. Gers, who was in the island recently as a guest at the RJR Sports Foundation National Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year awards and who also had meetings with Blake and other track and field interests during his brief visit to the island yesterday responded to the JAAA president outlining that Carter was free to compete. “It appears Mr Carter is not provisionally suspended and is eligible to compete in athletics competition pending the CAS procedure,” Gers wrote in his response to the JAAA’s query after consultation with the IAAF’s Medical and Anti-Doping Commission. Carter is now expected to start his season shortly after going nearly 17 months since his last race.  Carter will compete this Saturday at the Milo Western Relays at the Montego Bay Sports Complex as a member of MVP’s 4x100m relay team.last_img read more

Jamaica will open against Belize on Monday, then play against Guyana on Tuesday,and complete their group fixtures on Wednesday against hosts Bahamas.

Children under 12 will be issued one free ticket with the purchase of an adult ticket, while mound tickets cost $1,000. NOTE: An earlier version had said ‘Fifty years of Sabina Park’.
