New Zealand Women continued their dominance
over West Indies Women at Mount Maunganui,
beating them by eight wickets in the fourth T20 to
take a 3-0 lead in the series.
After failing in chases in previous games, West
Indies chose to bat but fared poorly. Kycia Knight
(28) and Shemaine Campbelle (29) were the only
batsmen to pass 20 and West Indies were restricted
to 99 for 7 in 20 overs. Morna Nielsen conceded
only eight runs in four overs and took two wickets
for New Zealand, while Suzie Bates took 2 for 12.
New Zealand lost Sam Curtis for a duck in the
chase but Bates scored 50 and Sara McGlashan con-
tributed 32 as they scored 103 for 2 in 16.3 overs.
Anisa Mohammed was economical for West Indies,
finishing with figures of 4-0-9-1.
SCORES: New Zealand Women 103 for 2 (Bates
50) beat West Indies Women 99 for 7 (Campbelle
29, Nielsen 2-8) by eight wickets
West Indies Under-19 batsman Jeremy Solozano
struck a brilliant 96 runs yesterday to leave Queen s
Park Cricket Club in a commanding position at the
end of the first day in their two-day clash against
Preysal in the National League.
Solozano s innings guided the Parkites to a massive
302/8 declared in their first innings. Left-handed
Solozano was ably supported by Daron Cruickshank
and Kevon Cooper, who made 84 and 41 respectively.
Solozano and Cruicksank shared in a 147-run part-
nership that took the match away from Preysal.
Anthony Adams was the top bowler for Preysal,
snatching 5/79. Preysal closed the day on 37/3 as
Cooper ended the day with figures of 3/11.
At California, the match between Caldrac and
Tableland was stopped by the officials as players
were using obscene language. Officials must decide
when the match will continue.
Former sports minister and present
manager of the T&T National Cricket team
Manohar Ramsaran has lashed out at the
local broadcast media for not providing
live coverage of the Regional Four-day
Cricket competition now being played at
the Queen s Park Oval on Tragarete Road
Meanwhile, retired national football coach
Alvin Corneal has slammed the business
community for failing to step and sponsor
the Red Steel which is based in T&T and
participates in the Caribbean Premier League
The sporting stakeholders made the com-
ments at Safari Publishing s launch of the
new magazine Play Caribbean Sports held
yesterday at the President Box at the Queen s
Ramsaran said: "Yesterday (Friday) I got
several calls about which station was carrying
the match? What is happening at the Oval?
The media house(s) seem to be absent. Of
course, if something goes bad---there s a
riot at the Oval--all the media would be
here. It is time we use the media to also
promote positive things: positive thoughts,
He added: "...T&T, we hear many times
that sport is an industry and it must grow
and so on. We are guided sometimes mis-
guided by headlines in the media, but when
we have positive things done, they are not
there at all.
"I am asking media houses, let someone
come and tell the nation the score. They
(people) might not be here in numbers, but
they are still interested in what is taking
place. And, if the vibrations aren t sent,
maybe people won t come to see what is
happening. The media has become integral
to the development of T&T."
Corneal questioned the mind-set of the
business community which regularly reports
He said: "The economy of this country
compares with the first five rich countries
in the world, per capita and we cannot put
a cricket team on the field in a Caribbean
Premier League (CPL). As far as I am con-
cerned that s a retrograde step. They got
the encouragement they needed in the first
tournament and yet still it didn t work.
Naim Khan, editor-in-chief of Play
Caribbean Sports, said the Caribbean has
produced some of the world s finest athletes
and journalists in various disciplines and
that this never ending flow would be rep-
resented in the region s newest glossy pub-
He lauded the achievements of Usian
Bolt, Gary Sobers, Vivian Richards, Brian
Charles Lara, who he recalled were all
schooled in the region and still held the
most prestigious records in their respective
The talent and flambuoyancy displayed
by Caribbean athletes was unrivalled, Khan
said, despite the lack of proper facilities,
coaches and sustained financing.
In his view, however, regional athletes
needed to step up their level of profession-
alism. He said this component was an inte-
gral factor if emerging regional athletes were
to achieve sustained growth.
"We seem to have a never ending flow
of talent, in which our people are being
pursued by clubs, institutions and countries
across the globe. Caribbean sport person-
alities bring a different atmosphere to any
institution that pursues them.
"Currently, the world s finest athlete s is
Jamaican Usain Bolt. Jamaica has an excellent
track and field programme which produces
medals at every international meet," said
He added: "Chris Gayle, Kieran Pollard,
Sunil Narine and Dwayne Bravo are all
adored by the IPL franchise and supporters.
Dwight Yorke, Russell Latapy and David
Nakid were seldom released by their clubs.
Many times the TTFF (now TTFA) had to
intervene for their release. Michael Holding
and Shakka Hislop are now renowned com-
mentators on Sky Sports in the UK and
