SA’s Dale Steyn for Ja Tallawahs

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica (CMC): Jamaica Tallawahs have named South African speedster Dale Steyn to replace Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga, who has been ruled out of the upcoming Caribbean Premier League (CPL) through injury. The 32-year-old Steyn is one of the world’s leading Test bowlers but has already made his mark in the shortest form of the game, claiming 58 wickets from 42 Twenty20 Internationals at an economy rate of 6.71 runs per over. He was a member of the South Africa side at the recent Twenty20 World Cup in India and is currently representing Gujarat Lions in the Indian Premier League. “It is a great privilege to feature in the CPL for the first time, and I am proud and delighted to sign up for the Jamaica Tallawahs for the forthcoming CPL season,” Steyn said. “The CPL is one of the strongest Twenty20 leagues in the world game and it’s a tournament that’s on the rise.” Steyn will join overseas stars Sri Lankan Kumar Sangakkara and Bangladeshi all-rounder Shakib-al-Hasan, along with Jamaican big names Chris Gayle and AndrÈ Russell, forming a formidable squad for this season’s campaign. The 32-year-old Malinga, who has in the past played for Guyana Amazon Warriors, has failed to recover from a knee injury sustained last November.last_img read more

Brathwaite is an investment – Browne

first_img “Not that I am saying that is in any way a reason not to perform but we have to take into consideration he’s still a young player at the international level. There’s so much things. We have a very young team and … the selection panel we sat and we talked about all players, and we all felt that Carlos Brathwaite was still someone that we can get a lot out of.” Brathwaite shot to prominence last April when he smashed massive sixes off the first four balls of the last over to propel West Indies to a dramatic victory over England in the final of the Twenty20 World Cup. Since those heroics, his form in ODIs has been ordinary, with a meagre 157 runs coming from 12 appearances at a lowly average of 15.7, while taking 17 wickets with his medium pace. Overall, Brathwaite averages just 13 with the bat from 20 ODIs and has taken 21 wickets at 40. Browne contended Brathwaite should not be measured against his exploits at the T20 World Cup, especially since he was still relatively new to international cricket. Brathwaite, who was elevated to the T20 captaincy last year, was a vital part of the Barbados Pride squad that won the Regional Super50 title last weekend in Antigua. BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, (CMC): Chairman of selectors, Courtney Browne, has described Twenty20 World Cup hero, Carlos Brathwaite, as an “investment” in West Indies cricket and argues his inclusion to face England in the three-match One-Day International series should not be viewed purely in terms of recent form. The 28-year-old all-rounder’s selection has been questioned in some quarters especially in light of his recent failures but Browne said Brathwaite was still at a very early stage of his development and the selection panel was focused on getting the best out of him. “He’s a young player who is a very exciting player on his day, who hasn’t played a lot of international cricket either. He’s an investment and we all know if we get him right what he can produce for us,” Browne said. “We would have seen him in the T20 World Cup but one of the things is if you sit and hear, say a coach or captain, speak about Carlos Brathwaite it is a bit different.” He continued: “The way how 50-overs cricket is played now where there are power-plays and there are certain bowlers you go for in power-plays and certain bowlers you don’t. And Carlos’s strike rate would be more than the other bowlers because of the time of the games when he bowls. MASSIVE SIXESlast_img read more

Sharapova made her return in April at Stuttgart, reaching the semi-finals as a wildcard, but such invitations sparked criticism from some WTA rivals, saying she should have to work her way back without such benefits, some suggesting a life ban.“I’m aware of what many of my peers have said about me and how critical of me some of them have been,” she wrote.“If you’re a human being with a normal, beating heart… I don’t think that sort of thing will ever fully be possible to ignore.”Sharapova was refused a wildcard by French Open organizers and missed Wimbledon with a thigh injury, so the US Open will be her first Grand Slam event since last year’s Australian Open.Shaking off criticism after the French Open snub, Sharapova tweeted, “If this is what it takes to rise up again, then I am in it all the way, everyday.

MAN BROUGHT HAMMER TO BAR AND BEAT VICTIM AROUND HEAD

first_imgA Ballybofey man viciously attacked a man with a claw hammer in a bar and then threw the weapon in the River Finn.Robert ‘Rab’ Connell walked casually into Junction 15 on May 16th last and proceeded to batter Damian Woods around the head in front of his hysterical girlfriend.Connell, 46, hit his victim five times in the head in front of a number of other patrons. He was then wrestled off the victim and he ran out a side door of the bar and threw the attack weapon in the nearby River Finn.He then rushed home and put his blood-soaked clothing in his washing machine to clean them.Letterkenny Circuit Court heard how he thought Mr Woods was one of a number of men who had previously attacked him and beat him up at Drumboe Woods.Mr Woods was rushed to hospital and had to receive 28 stiches for various wounds to his head and also suffered a fractured skull.Connell, of 2 Sessiagh View, said he had never planned to attack Woods but had been on his way to get a Chinese meal.He had been drinking and smoking herbal cannabis and just happened to look inside Junction 15 bar and saw Woods in there.Connell said he had been thinking of “yer man’ and decided to take a hammer to town with him up his sleeve.Judge John O’Hagan said this was a savage attack and noted that 90% of offences in Donegal are Section 3 Non Fatal assaults.“Mr Connell wants me to believe that he went to town and just happened to have a hammer and just happened to meet Mr Woods.“He didn’t like the area and needed a hammer for his protection. That’s a tall one to accept“People fore themselves up on drink and drugs and think they are the rulers of the world and think they can do what they want but, I’m sorry, they can’t,” he saidJudge O’Hagan told O’Hagan he would be facing three years in jail if he had not pleaded guilty.He remanded him in custody until Friday to make a decision on his sentence.* Donegaldaily.com – keeping you in touch with all that’s happening in the courts.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldaily© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.MAN BROUGHT HAMMER TO BAR AND BEAT VICTIM AROUND HEAD was last modified: November 9th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:attackBallybofeyHAMMERJUNCTION 15ROBERT CONNELLlast_img read more

Irish Law Society commends Pearse Doherty for ‘exposing’ insurance companies

first_imgThe Law Society of Ireland has commanded Pearse Doherty for his ‘exposure’ of insurance companies on the island. Pearse Doherty called out insurance firms for not reporting suspected bogus claims to gardai – despite one firm believing 20% are fraudulent.The Donegal TD was speaking at an Oireachtas committee meeting alongside CEO of AXA Phillip Bradley, Allianz chief Sean McGrath, and FBD Ireland’s Jackie McMahon and Fiona Muldoon. Sinn Féin Finance spokesperson @PearseDoherty has called out the insurance industry for magnifying the scale of the issue of fraudulent claims in order to justify their high premiums and increases. pic.twitter.com/jaR5kH2dFr— Sinn Féin (@sinnfeinireland) July 5, 2019Responding to Pearse Doherty TD’s detailed questioning of the insurance sector in recent days, Law Society of Ireland Director General Ken Murphy said: “Deputy Doherty is to be commended for devastatingly exposing the soaring super-profits insurance companies are enjoying.”“The Law Society echoes Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan’s praise for Deputy Doherty’s cross-examination of insurers, and his call for the industry to do more to reduce costs.Mr Murphy continued: “Pearse Doherty’s questions laid bare the insurers’ distraction technique of blaming false and exaggerated claims, rather than their own profiteering, for the excessive premiums that threaten the survival of so many Irish businesses.” “It is now clear that insurers are making enormous profits while Irish businesses struggle to pay exorbitant premiums,” Murphy added.“We are glad to see political recognition that it is insurance companies, themselves, not the victims of accidents, the judiciary or the legal profession, who must answer for the incredibly burdensome premiums they are choosing to charge their customers.”“It is also clear that a primary source of false and misleading claims in this public debate is the insurance industry itself.“In the light of what Deputy Doherty’s fearless and forensic questioning has exposed about false and exaggerated claims, should the insurers not report themselves to the Gardaí?”Irish Law Society commends Pearse Doherty for ‘exposing’ insurance companies was last modified: July 8th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
