first_imgWest Indies head coach, Phil Simmons is adamant that batsmen must score centuries while crediting their month-long camp for the victory in the first Test on Sunday over England. Simmons fielded questions from Stabroek Sport via the team’s virtual press conference yesterday where he spoke about the batsmen converting half centuries into centuries moving forward  in the three-Test series.When asked about the areas he wanted to see improvement on following their four-wicket win, Simmons stated “I think definitely the fact that we had two guys getting sixties and a couple other guys getting 40s and not going to score hundreds.”The head coach noted, “I like to see 100s in my scorecard at the end of an innings. I think that is something that we have to improve on.” Simmons reasoned that had the half centuries been converted into tons, the game could have been won with a little more ease.“If one of the guys who scored 60 went on to score 100 the game might have been easier for us going down to the end so we have to make sure batsmen score 100s and take games away from the opposition,” Simmons added.Reflecting on the win, Jermaine Blackwood inspired the chase with a top score of 95 in the second innings while Kraigg Brathwaite (65), Shane Dowrich (61) and Roston Chase (47) piloted the first innings. Nevertheless, Simmons labelled the match as “excellent” while deeming the victory as “a great win” that exemplified the hard work put in by the players.“For me I think it was a great win because it signified a lot of hard work done by the players over the last four or five weeks because you don’t come to England and just win a Test match, I think when you look back at the five days of the Test match it was what I would say (was) a top class Test match. In all the days Test match cricket was played by both teams even coming down to the last hour, your bet could have gone either way so I think it was an excellent Test match and to come out on top is been great from us,” he said.Simmons noted that the win was very important in avoiding the hardships of playing catch up against England in England. He pointed out, “I think it is important because we don’t want to come behind chasing England in England so the chasing is from their point of view now. You guard against complacency by just trying to do the same things you did just before the first Test, trying to put all the measures before the first Test into place and let the players know we won a Test match but right now that Test match is history, we got to be thinking about Thursday and what we will be doing from Thursday to Sunday.”Simmons contended that the month-long stint in the bio-secure venue orchestrated by the England Cricket Board was instrumental towards the victory. In that facility, West Indies were housed on site at the venue with an extended touring party that featured a total of 25 players.When asked about the stint’s significance, Simmons responded “I think that has been the biggest influence on the performance.” The head coach posited, “I think the fact that we have been here for that period of time, we’ve had quality bowling in the nets because we have 11 seamers here, you can’t put a price on that.”The 57-year-old former all-rounder went on to weigh his experience while being a player and concluded that this method of preparation should be looked into.“I think that is something we have to look at because I don’t like to go back in my days but I remember we would come to England and play three or four proper warm up games before the first Test and then we would also have three-day games or four-day games between Test matches so I think that period of training we had here goes a long way to how we performed in the first Test,” he stated.last_img read more

first_imgJust over a week ago, the Ravens were coming off the bye with their season dangerously close to circling the drain before Thanksgiving.Two victories and two Pittsburgh losses later, Baltimore wakes up Monday in sole possession of first place in the AFC North. That winless October now feels like a long time ago as the 5-4 Ravens are the only team in the division above .500.Even if you still aren’t ready to believe in the Ravens with their well-known issues, the Steelers (4-5) are now in the midst of their own four-game losing streak after falling to Dallas in the closing seconds at Heinz Field on Sunday. It wasn’t a divisional showdown like the Ravens’ 21-14 win over Pittsburgh the previous week, but the game felt no less pivotal for the struggling Steelers, who will now play four of their next five on the road.The Steelers were considered the early class of the division after winning four of their first five, but that is no longer the case in mid-November as Ezekiel Elliott’s last-second touchdown changed the landscape of the AFC North on Sunday evening.The attention now shifts to Cincinnati’s Monday road game against the New York Giants as a win would move the Bengals (3-4-1) into sole possession of second place. In two weeks, the Ravens will try to snap their five-game losing streak against the Bengals that dates back to the 2013 season.Of course, seven weeks remain in the regular season with the Ravens playing road games against two first-place teams — Dallas and New England — and against Pittsburgh and Cincinnati in the final two weeks. Their final two home games come against Miami and Philadelphia, who both own winning records and are better than anyone expected them to be at the start of the season.No matter how mediocre the rest of the division looks, it still won’t be easy for Baltimore.The Ravens’ problems on offense can’t be dismissed despite a 22-point second-half outburst against Cleveland on Thursday, but a very strong defense and the Steelers’ struggles suddenly make the path to a division title appear less daunting. Pittsburgh will have an easier task next week with a road game against the winless Browns while the Ravens must play at one-loss Dallas, but Baltimore will be firmly in the division mix at Thanksgiving no matter what the Steelers and Bengals do.You can’t ask for more than that after losing four straight in October.The chances of a wild card appear bleak for any AFC North team with the AFC West currently sporting three seven-win teams, but a 9-7 record is looking more and more like the mark to win the division.And even with the difficult remaining schedule, that goal looks more attainable after a fruitful eight days for the Ravens.last_img read more

first_imgRahim Ayew says he is in no hurry to play in Europe after catching the eye with some solid displays at the of African Nations Championship for Ghana.Rahim, the eldest son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele is the only of three brothers to still be playing his football at home but insist he feels no pressure at this stage.His younger brothers Andrea and Jordan are both on the books of Olympique Marseille.“If the time comes, I will go to Europe. But until then I will work hard in the domestic league and wait for my break. There is no point in putting myself under pressure,” he said.Rahim does however feel the pressure of doing well in a Ghana shirt because of his family background.His father Abedi was a three-time African player of the year, his uncle Kwame was at one point second top goal scorer in Portugal and second top goal scorer for Ghana at the 1992 Olympics before going on to play for the Black Stars. Recently his brother Andrea captained the Ghana U-20 side to win the African Youth Championships in Rwanda. Inevitably, Rahim knows that puts the spotlight on him and is determined to play a key part as Ghana bid to reach the final of the tournament reserved exclusively for home based players and stake a claim for himself.He thinks the Senegal game will be the most difficult for Ghana yet in the competition but which ever way it ends, Rahim insist he will leave Ivory Coast with his reputation and confidence enhanced.“When I was called up there were those who thought I was simply benefiting from my father’s status. It put a lot of pressure on me but I am happy that when I have played I have proved I am a decent footballer on my own merit.”The 21-year old says he took a lot of inspiration from Andrea when he was called up for the Nations Cup but is in no doubt which one of the three brothers is the better player.“It is Jordan who is at Marseille. He is a bit like Cristiano Ronaldo. He has height, pace a lot of tricks and great ball control.” Source: Kickofflast_img read more
