first_imgTAROUBA, Trinidad (CMC) – Unbeaten Trinbago Knight Riders swept into tomorrow’s final of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) after ruthlessly disposing of an erratic Jamaica Tallawahs by nine wickets in the first semi-final here yesterday.Akeal Hosein laid the platform for TKR’s 11th straight win when he snatched three for 14 with his left-arm spin to restrict Tallawahs to a meagre 107 for seven off their 20 overs.Opener Lendl Simmons then stroked an unbeaten 54 and Tion Webster, 44 not out, as TKR chased down their target with five overs left.“Getting this far now is about the big picture which is on tomorrow; so for us, we still have to try and keep it level,” TKR captain Kieron Pollard said afterwards.“We still have to try and enjoy our victory as we’ve been doing throughout the tournament but we still have to come in 48 hours and try to play a better game of cricket than we did today.”Sent in, Tallawahs lost Jermaine Blackwood to the fourth ball of the match without a run on the board, bowled by Hosein, as he missed a wild heave and when Glenn Phillips steered left-arm spinner Khary Pierre (2-29) to point in the next over, the innings was already in crisis at two for two.Hosein then quickly knocked over the promoted Mujeeb-ur-Rahman (0) and Asif Ali (4) to leave Tallawahs tottering on 25 for four before Nkrumah Bonner top-scored with 41 and captain Rovman Powell chipped in with 33, to salvage pride for their side.Bonner struck five fours in a 42-ball knock while Powell counted a four and a six off 35 deliveries, as the pair combined in a 38-run fifth wicket stand.Leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed broke the stand in the 12th over when he got Bonner to play on at 63 for five and with five runs added, Tallawahs suffered a game-changing blow when Andre Russell was controversially given out by umpire Nigel Duguid, caught at slip for two off off-spinner Sunil Narine.A clearly upset Russell remonstrated angrily before storming off and TV replays confirmed the player’s reaction, showing the ball clearly striking only the pad before ballooning to Dwayne Bravo.With their talisman gone, Tallawahs’ hopes of a competitive total also disappeared and it was left to Powell and Carlos Brathwaite (13 not out) to add 24 for the seventh wicket, before Powell holed out to deep mid-off off Pierre at the end of the 18th over.“We lost four wickets in the power-play and the stats show when you lose four wickets in the power-play you usually end on a (losing) note,” Powell lamented.“There was a lot of inconsistency. The batters didn’t stand up all season and we asked our international batters to bat most of the overs and we just didn’t do that.”The target was never going to seriously test TKR but when off-spinner Mujeeb bowled Narine for four in the second over with 14 runs on the board, Tallawahs began to dream.However, Simmons and Webster hastily dashed those hopes in a rollicking 97-run, unbroken second-wicket stand.Simmons faced 44 balls and struck half-dozen fours and two sixes while Webster’s 43-ball knock was laced with one six and half-a-dozen fours – the last two of which propelled TKR past their target.last_img read more

first_imgA new year and new opponents await the University of Wisconsin football team, and many critics are saying this year is going to be a walk in the park for the Badgers.Many people, however, seem to have forgotten that nothing ever seems to come easily for this Wisconsin team. Starting off the season with the departures of some of the most talented players and injuries already plaguing this team, this year seems like it is going to be a bit of a struggle for UW.Football: Jack Cichy to miss 2017 seasonThe University of Wisconsin Athletic Department announced Thursday morning senior Jack Cichy will miss the 2017 season due to a Read…The problemsFor starters, there are not that many games against any of the major Big Ten East teams. With Ohio State, Michigan State and Penn State all missing from this year’s schedule, the Badgers are not going to get much quality experience from the Big Ten East.This experience is necessary for the Badgers if they want to make it back to the Big Ten tournament this year — and win. With so many power schools missing from this year’s schedule, Wisconsin will find themselves going into Indianapolis this year with little practical experience against the team they will be facing.One of the other problems is their opening, non-conference schedule. The Badgers are facing three relatively inexperienced schools who will offer little to no insight on UW’s weaknesses. Schools like Florida Atlantic, who the Badgers will play Sept. 9th, will most likely be a walk in the park.Football preview: What to expect from the Badgers this seasonThe University of Wisconsin football team enters the 2017 season with high expectations and hopes of replicating, or even exceeding, Read…This does not help when you consider that after these three games, Wisconsin will face Northwestern in their first Big Ten game of the season. Northwestern has an even better non-conference schedule than Wisconsin, playing Bowling Green, Duke and Nevada within the first three weeks of play — which will help them in the long run.This means that the Badgers will have to fix their mistakes immediately if they want to keep their Big Ten record competitive enough to ensure their spot at the Big Ten Championship game. That kind of pressure could be suffocating for the team, and it means that one small mistake could be a disaster for this teamThe benefitsSince Wisconsin doesn’t see much of the Big Ten East, that also means they will save their record from some potential losses. Not seeing schools like Michigan State, Ohio State and Penn State means Wisconsin will not have to worry so much week to week about their record and their standings within the Big Ten.Another benefit of not seeing the Big Ten East as much this year is that it lowers the chances of injuries happening. Schools like Penn State and Ohio State tend to be aggressive defensively, which can lead to injuries. Injuries like these, which tend to happens late in the season, can be devastating when proceeding into the later part of December.The worst part of the schedule The last two weeks of the regular season are probably the toughest for Wisconsin. The Badgers will close out their home season run against Michigan, which is arguably one of the best teams in the Big Ten. While this game does take place in Camp Randall, it also means that the Badgers could end their season on a bad note while home.The next weekend of the schedule is not much better, with Wisconsin heading to Minneapolis to take on Minnesota. Typically, the Battle for the Axe is an intense game to begin with, but taking on the Gophers at home is going to be one of the more tougher games this season.Football: Chryst’s 100th win begins slowly, develops momentum in second halfWhile the first game of the season might have resulted in a win, the University of Wisconsin football team definitely Read…Wisconsin is looking at taking the Axe home for the thirteenth year, and taking on the Gophers in the heart of TCF Bank stadium is one of the hardest challenges known to Badger football.After those two games, the Badgers hope to head into the Big Ten Conference game, which will hopefully result in the Badgers heading to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl in January.What the Badgers are sayingJazz Peavy“We are in the Big Ten, and it’s not like we’re second class to any division in this league. Any game is a game that we have to prepare for. Nothing is ever going to come easy to us.”Sarah Godfrey/The Badger HeraldChris James“The Big Ten, overall, is well-rounded. Even a 3-10 team can compete [against the best teams]. This is a tough division. The east division is extremely tough, with Michigan, Ohio State and Michigan State all in the same division. Ohio State and Michigan used to play in the Big Ten championship game, but now they can’t. Those match-ups cause a lot of ruckus and a lot of upsets.”Natrell Jamerson“A lot of people doubt our defense, especially after losing so many great players. We feel like our defense is even better than last year. People just doubt our team in general. We’re trying to do a lot more than we did last year.”last_img read more
