Published at 11:00 am The City Pharmacy PNG Lewas have been training hard in an attempt to improve their chances of qualifying for the Womens T20 World Cup, which will be held in the West Indies in November this year. In order to get there, the girls have to be one of the top teams at the ICC Womens T20 World Cup Qualifier to be held in Netherlands in June. Cricket PNG caught up with City Pharmacy PNG Lewas Coach Rarua Dikana to asses how the preperations are coming along. “The training has been going really well. The girls have been working really hard as well. This is the 4th month into our training program – Preparing for the T20 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers in July (in Netherlands). We’ve played a few matches as well. We’ve played a series of T20s couple of weeks ago and now we are playing some matches, including 40 over matches and we have finished off the training matches for now with a couple more T20s. There has been some very good performance by our batswomen and bowlers. Sibona Jimmy had some good knocks in the 40 over contests. She has been the best of the batting group and she is clearly in form. She has scored 43 and 80 runs in the the two 40 Over matches. Hopefully she can carry this form through the year.” Sibona’s national teammate in the past, Kaia has been on the receiving end of the fantastic innings being played by the left-hander, captaining the Reds team. But the Lewa is enjoying the experience. “It was hard to take care of the girls as Captain. Tough decision taking up that opportunity to work with the girls, but I manage to do it. The girls are very supportive. We are working together , and I really like they way they help me and I love learning from them. I play as an all rounder. I bowl china man and bat in the middle order. My goal is to when batting rotate the strike and work hard, play with the team and while bowling I like to take wickets to restrict runs. Overall, our we are preparing well, the girls are training hard, trying to get where we want – We want to be up there with all the teams that we are going to be playing against in Netherlands. The challenge the we are facing now, is that we need to work hard on our batting. The last couple of months our betting has not been going well, it was the biggest issue we had. However, we are working with the coach now and we have are giving a 110% to ensure we have a good batting side. All the batswomen are working hard. The last couple of games we had, they are very good, the batters are doing hard work and practicing everything they’ve learnt. Our bowlers have been good though.” In an effort to expand the base of recruits and get the best players from Papua New Guinea, Cricket PNG has 6 women training in Amini Park from associate cricket boards around the country. Coach Rarua Dikana is impressed with the quality on display. “Young Natasha Ambo from Popondetta is leading the bowling table with 5 wickets. We invited her from the Popondetta Cricket Association and this is hopefully good encouragement for the players from outside Moresby. Natasha is joined by players from Lae and from Alotau, etc… They are all here to play the Reds v Blacks series, to see how they do in match conditions – vital for their selection going forward, but not the only criteria. “We have a big selection umbrella, covering all the aspects of our training program so far. Commitment and performance will be a combination of the selection criteria AND their performances in match conditions. As that explains that selection is not completely dependant on performances here, the 40 over and T20 matches are important to see how the girls do in pressure conditions. We’ve built them up with sessions in the nets, to improve their skills and practice batting on a centre wicket, over the last 3 months but the match conditions are basically to see how they are applying those skills in the middle.”

Guyana Jaguars Head Coach, Rayon Griffith is optimistic about his impact on the West Indies team after being promoted to Assistant Coach of the senior side for the Ireland Tri-series. Griffith’s appointment was announced by Cricket West Indies (CWI) yesterday, just five days after CWI President, Ricky Skerritt revealed a number of changes including the sacking of interim head coach, Richard Pybus and the appointment of Floyd Reifer as head coach on an interim basis.The appointments, according to Skerritt are expected to begin with the Tri-Series and carry into the 2019 ICC World Cup and India’s tour of the Caribbean soon after.Director of Cricket, Jimmy Adams said, “CWI have, in consultation with interim Head Coach Floyd Reifer, assembled a strong support group of coaches to work with the squad for the Tri-Series against Ireland and Bangladesh as we prepare for the World Cup. This support group will continue throughout the ICC Cricket World Cup in England. Griffith, 40, is a level Three Coach and has featured in the Amazon Warriors set up for the Caribbean Premier League and West Indies A since becoming a coach over a decade ago. The former fast bowler told Stabroek Sport that this is a step in the right direction for his career on a personal note, but on the wider scope of things, he is confident in his ability to contribute positively towards the development of West Indies cricket. He also expressed gratitude to the Almighty whom he credits for guiding him in his journey.Griffith pointed out that preparation has always been the hallmark of his career and that he has continuously dedicated his energies towards improving the trade.The newly appointed assistant coach said, he is prepared to deal with the rigours of working with the team, particularly in his role with respect to fielding, noting that West Indies are among the trendsetters when it comes to fielding. Griffith added that he is eager to work along with Reifer, having collaborated in the past at the West Indies A team level.He explained that the energy that comes from an environment with Reifer is one which makes situations comfortable and allows an open forum where opinions and suggestions are solicited in order to get results.The Coaching Staff and Team Management: Floyd Reifer- Interim Head Coach, Roddy Estwick – Assistant Coach, Corey Collymore – Assistant Coach (Fast Bowling), Rayon Griffith – Assistant Coach (Fielding), Mushtaq Ahmed – Assistant Coach (Spin Bowling), Rawl Lewis – Team Manager, Dr. Oba Gulston – Physiotherapist, Corey Bocking – Strength and Conditioning Coach, Dexter Augustus – Video and Data Analyst, Steven Sylvester – Sports Psychologist and Zephyrinus Nicholas – Massage Therapist.

LUCKNOW, Afghanistan, CMC – West Indies strokemaker Nicholas Pooran has been slapped with a four-match ban for ball tampering, casting a dark shadow over the Caribbean side’s recent one-day whitewash of Afghanistan. The incident took place during the third One-Day International here Monday when television footage showed the 24-year-old “scratching the surface of the ball with his thumbnail.”
The Ravens failed to make the postseason for the fourth time in five years, but where exactly did their players stack up across the NFL in 2017?Whether it’s discussing the Pro Bowl or picking postseason awards, media and fans spend much time debating where players rank at each position, but few put in the necessary time and effort to watch every player on every team extensively enough to develop any kind of an authoritative opinion.Truthfully, how many times did you closely watch the offensive line of the Los Angeles Chargers this season? What about the Detroit Lions linebackers or the Miami Dolphins cornerbacks?That’s why I can appreciate projects such as Bleacher Report’s NFL1000 and the grading efforts of Pro Football Focus. Of course, neither should be viewed as the gospel of evaluation and each is subjective, but I respect the exhaustive effort to grade players across the league when so many of us watch only one team or one division on any kind of a consistent basis. It’s important to note that the following PFF rankings are where the player stood at the conclusion of the regular season.Below is a look at where Ravens tight ends ranked across the league, according to those outlets:Running backs Defensive linemenBenjamin Watson2017 offensive snap count: 699 NFL1000 ranking: 7th PFF ranking: 55th Skinny: The 37-year-old led Baltimore in receptions returning from last year’s Achilles injury, but he gained just 8.6 yards per catch and nearly a third of his 522 receiving yards came against Cleveland. His true value falls somewhere between these two rankings, but the free agent is considering retirement.Nick Boyle2017 offensive snap count: 696NFL1000 ranking: 34thPFF ranking: 27thSkinny: Boyle became a linchpin blocker for Greg Roman’s diverse run-game schemes, but he is limited as a receiver, making him no better than a solid No. 2 tight end. The 2015 fifth-round pick caught a career-high 28 passes, but a 7.3 yards per catch average reflects his lack of speed.Maxx Williams 2017 offensive snap count: 315 NFL1000 ranking: 71stPFF ranking: 24th Skinny: Injuries have derailed the former second-round pick’s career as he was little more than a glorified fullback, catching 15 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown in 11 games. Breshad Perriman headlines the painful shortcomings of the 2015 draft, but Williams has been nearly as disappointing.Vince Mayle 2017 offensive snap count: 21 NFL1000 ranking: n/aPFF ranking: n/a Skinny: The former wide receiver was a solid special-teams contributor, but he didn’t catch a pass and carried the ball twice all season, scoring a touchdown in Oakland. Given his lack of opportunity despite the position needing more speed, Mayle can’t be viewed as anything more than organizational depth.2018 positional outlookMy big question after Dennis Pitta’s hip injury last spring was whether the Ravens had real depth or only inventory at tight end, and the latter proved to be true by season’s end. Darren Waller’s suspension and Crockett Gillmore’s season-ending knee injury were unfortunate developments, but neither was surprising when considering their respective histories. Watson was a good story coming back from a major injury and has tremendous character, but the veteran leading the Ravens in catches says all you need to know about the state of this passing game. Boyle is a good blocking tight end, but Williams lacks the speed and athleticism to be a difference-maker at the position like the Ravens envisioned when they traded up to draft him three years ago. One of the major priorities of the offseason must be to add a tight end with some game-changing ability, whether it’s through the draft, free agency, or a trade.
I shot a lot of hoops in the backyard of my pal Robert Debelius on Eastern Avenue and this was on the corner boom box whenever Cheap Trick “In Color” or Tom Petty “Hard Promises” wasn’t playing. The first time I ever heard “Highway To Hell” was on DC101 in the parking lot of the Capital Centre seeing ZZ Top on the “Expect No Quarter” tour in March 1980 (my second concert after seeing Styx a month early at the Baltimore Civic Center). Everybody in the tailgate lot in Largo was singing it at full voice and knew every word. Bon Scott had been dead a month and four months later “Back in Black” arrived in that plain black embossed album cover with Brian Johnson and that screech. My parents camped out all morning at the Hecht’s downtown so me and seven of my friends could go to see AC/DC on the “For Those About To Rock Tour.” Saw them several times and have a few “Money Talks” bills that fell from the sky once. And, yes, I’ve seen the derriere of Angus Young on a few occasions as well… There has never been a finer rock song written than “Shoot To Thrill.” These were NOT lyrics designed for 12-year old boys! (And, babe, you can insert your love for Tipper Gore here, shaking a leg the whole way). Hey, man, these were cassettes! And who the hell would fast forward through “Giving The Dog A Bone” or “What Do You Do For Money Honey”? Even after all of these years, rock and roll ain’t no riddle – it just makes good, good sense. Every word. Every song. In order. Never interviewed any of the AC/DC lads. Bummed about that… Every kid in my neighborhood had “Back In Black” on cassette – because it was portable – and Angus Young became the new Eddie Van Halen of my neighborhood on every bike. And for the next 18 months, “Hells Bells” was the anthem of Colgate long before my dude Trevor Hoffman ever came outta the San Diego bullpen. Crazy Rich. Snoball Joe. Chuck Piercey. Pudgie. The temperatures were high…
By Steve ZwemkeHARTFORD, S.D. (July 25) – The biggest Saturday night obstacle at I-90 Speedway for Colin Smith was a car exiting to the pits with just two laps to go in the Coffee Cup IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car feature.The close call came as Elijah Johnson left the track via the backstretch exit as Smith was about to lap him. Smith picked up his fourth win while Jeff Edgington crossed in second. The first-year I-90 Speedway driver has now finished in the top two in each of his last six starts.

Novak Djokovic barely got out of first gear but had more than enough in the tank to beat Briton Kyle Edmund 6-3 6-3 in the second round of the Miami Open on Friday.The top seed, who is trying to join Andre Agassi as a six-times Miami winner, improved his record since the start of 2015 to 105-7, picking up 14 titles along the way.Just five days after an emphatic victory at Indian Wells, the Serb adjusted well to the steamy conditions in south Florida. He was broken once, in the first set, but broke 21-year-old Edmund four times.Earlier in the day, Juan Martin del Potro had two surprises — the first when his scheduled opponent Roger Federer withdrew with illness, and the second when he fell 6-4 6-4 to lucky loser and fellow Argentine Horacio Zeballos.World number 112 Zeballos did not face a break point en route to his first tour-level win of the year.Former U.S. Open champion Del Potro, on the comeback trail after missing nearly a year due a left wrist injury, was clearly bothered by the joint.“He played well,” said del Potro of Zeballos. “He’s a lefty, he can play to my backhand easier than anyone else. He played very smart.“I was suffering a little bit. It was worse than in my first match, but I hope it’s nothing dangerous.“It’d be a surprise for me to win a match at this moment because I’m not 100 percent yet. But I’m here playing tennis. That’s good for me.”Jeremy Chardy of France, the 28th seed, went down 6-4 6-4 to Spaniard Fernando Verdasco.Briton Andy Murray, Spaniard Rafa Nadal and Japan’s Kei Nishikori will be among those in action on Saturday.Results from the Miami Men’s Singles Round 2 matches on Friday 1-Novak Djokovic (Serbia) beat Kyle Edmund (Britain) 6-3 6-325-Joao Sousa (Portugal) beat Vasek Pospisil (Canada) 6-7(1) 7-6(5) 6-2Fernando Verdasco (Spain) beat 28-Jeremy Chardy (France) 6-4 6-4Horacio Zeballos (Argentina) beat Juan Martin Del Potro (Argentina) 6-4 6-420-Benoit Paire (France) beat Mikhail Youzhny (Russia) 6-3 6-415-David Goffin (Belgium) beat Marcel Granollers (Spain) 6-4 6-418-Gilles Simon (France) beat Juan Monaco (Argentina) 7-5 6-18-David Ferrer (Spain) beat Taylor Fritz (U.S.) 7-6(6) 6-1Yoshihito Nishioka (Japan) beat 21-Feliciano Lopez (Spain) 6-4 6-4Lucas Pouille (France) beat 32-Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (Spain) 6-2 6-414-Dominic Thiem (Austria) beat Samuel Groth (Australia) 7-5 6-211-Marin Cilic (Croatia) beat Dusan Lajovic (Serbia) 6-4 6-17-Tomas Berdych (Czech Republic) beat Rajeev Ram (U.S.) walkover10-Richard Gasquet (France) beat Albert Ramos (Spain) 6-4 6-431-Steve Johnson (U.S.) beat Alexander Zverev (Germany) 7-6(9) 7-6(3)19-Viktor Troicki (Serbia) beat Inigo Cervantes (Spain) 6-7(6) 7-6(9) 7-6(3)
