GLASGOW---Sprint super star Usain
Bolt has criticised anti-doping officials
for reducing Tyson Gay s doping ban
after he tested positive for an anabolic
steroid last year.
Gay and Bolt s fellow Jamaican
sprinter Asafa Powell, both 31, failed
drug tests for oxilofrine, in July 2013.
Gay was given a one-year ban and
Powell was initially suspended for 18
"I m not really happy with the sit-
uation and with how it was done," Bolt
"I think for someone like [fellow
Jamaican] Asafa [Powell] to get a ban
of 18 months for that [stimulant
oxilofrine] and then Tyson Gay get just
one year because of cooperating, I think
it is sending a bad message into the
sport that you can do it [dope], but if
you cooperate with us, we ll reduce the
Powell claimed his ruling was "unfair
and unjust", and said a legal supplement
he took, Epiphany D1, was contami-
He appealed to the Court of Arbi-
tration for Sport and his ban was sub-
sequently reduced to six months.
Both Gay and Powell have now
returned to action.
Bolt is scheduled to race for the
first time this year in the Common-
wealth Games 4x100m relay next
Red Steel skipper Dwayne
Bravo has defended his decision
to allow 18-year-old Nicholas
Pooran to take on Sunil Narine
in a Super Over against the
Guyana Amazon last week.
Bravo has been criticised for the
decision which resulted in Red
Steel suffering its first defeat in
the Caribbean Premier League
((CPL) this season.
Bravo admitted that Pooran
might have lost some confidence
after dropping a catch in the final
over of the Guyana chase but said
the rest of the team backed the
youngest player in the side to deliv-
"Obviously the result did not
work out in our favour so you will
hear the negative side in terms of
why we chose young (Nicholas)
Pooran," said Bravo.
"Obviously he was a bit low in
confidence (after the final over)
but the type of player Pooran is,
he is very confident. He is the one
who walked up and said skip I
want to do it so we gave him the
With scores tied at 118 after 20
overs, Chris Barnwell swatted the
first ball of the one-over eliminator
from seamer Kevon Cooper over
mid-wicket, to help Amazon War-
riors gather 11 runs.
With Red Steel requiring 12 to
win, Narine beat left-hander
Nicholas Pooran outside the off-
stump with the first four deliveries
before having him caught at long
off by Martin Guptil off the fifth
ball to seal the game.
"He will only learn from it.
Obviously it was only one over and
anything could have happened and
he was facing the best bowler in
the world in Sunil Narine so there
was not much he could do, even
myself might not have been able
to get the 12 runs in six balls," Bravo
"It is a learning process and I
am happy with him and I like his
attitude and his belief in his ability
and the team believes in him as
The Red Steel are now in
Trinidad and Tobago for three
home games at Queen s Park Oval
in Port of Spain.
They play Guyana on Thursday,
Jamaica Tallawahs on Saturday and
St Lucia Zouks on Sunday.
"Last year we played our first
three games on the road and we
lost all three and coming home to
play was a bit of pressure, so to
win two on the road now, we obvi-
ously feel more comfortable com-
ing home to our fans," said Bravo.
"Based on reports, tickets are
selling out so the fans are happy
with the way the Red Steel team
is playing so far and I am just look-
ing forward to playing here and
putting on a great performance for
our fans home in Trinidad".
Dwayne Smith struck the second
century of this season s CPL series as
the Barbados Tridents inflicted anoth-
er defeat on St Lucia Zouks at Kens-
ington Oval, yesterday.
Smith s brutal attack on the Zouks
bowlers resulted in an unbeaten 110,
as his team racked up an impressive
186 for two, and then restricted the
Zouks to 157-4, to win the match by
Zouks captain Darren Sammy won
the toss and opted to field and saw his
team dismissed Shane Dowrich (0) in
the second over. But it was one of only
two dismissals for Sammy s team, as
Smith shared in two partnerships which
effectively decided the outcome of the
Firstly, he combined with Shoaib
Malik (49) in adding 110 for the second
wicket before being joined by captain
Kieron Pollard (18 not out), in getting
another 54 from 31 balls.
Smith made his intentions clear from
the first over bowled by Robin van der
Merwe, blasting 18, including a six and
In all, Smith slammed eight sixes
and seven fours in his 69-ball knock,
getting to his hundred with a six off
the penultimate ball, and then cele-
brating by hitting the final ball for a
six.Malik hit four boundaries in his 37-
When the Zouks batted, they lost
early wickets. Johnson Charles (12) was
carelessly run out in the third over.
Charles looked set for a big innings
blasting a six and a four from the eight
balls he faced.
Thereafter, Andre Fletcher (27) and
Henry Davids added 37 for the second
wicket but following Davids dismissal
for 22, the Zouks lost Fletcher at 77,
and then captain Darren Sammy (0),
two balls later.
Kenny Lesporis and Sohail Tanvir
gave the crowd something to cheer
about adding 78 in 40 balls but the
chase proved too much.
Lesporis made an unbeaten 50
from 38 balls which included six
fours and one six while Tanvir blast-
ed his way to an unbeaten 38 from
just 18 balls. It included four sixes
and one four.
