Marlon Samuels has highlighted that now that his form is back, he intends to take it into the West Indies two-match Twenty20 international series against Sri Lanka, which bowls off today in Pallekele.The stylish batsman, following an abysmal Test series against the Sri Lankans, with scores of 11, 0, 13 and six, improved in the team’s subsequent one-day international series that ended last week.He hit scores of two, 63 and 110 not out, and in the final game of the series was named Man of The Match.The Test and one-day series ended 3-0 in favour of the Sri Lankans.UNFORTUNATE DECISIONS”I got out in the Test series a couple of times as a result of some unfortunate decisions. However, nonetheless, I continued to work hard,” said Samuels.”Sometimes, when you fail a couple of times, you try different things. However, I didn’t, and now that my form is back, I will continue to work hard.”Samuels, the most experienced batsman for the West Indies in the Test and one-day series, is set to be joined in the Twenty20s by the experienced trio of Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard and captain, Darren Sammy.This, it is expected, will make the team more competitive and according to Samuels, he is looking forward to playing his role.

Residents of Belema and Sawmill communities on Bushrod Island in Monrovia have said they may file a lawsuit against Liberia Cement Company (CEMENCO) for its ongoing demolition exercises if the company refuses to carry out environmental safety procedures.The residents complained that their homes are covered in dust during the demolition of the old factory. However, Mr. James D. Gibson, Jr. told the Daily Observer last week that the demolition at the old CEMENCO factory has not started, pending the result of a bid process for a company the perform the demolition exercise. Gibson also said that the cement production process is done in coordination with Liberia’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and poses no health risks to the community.Mr. C. Brown Dennis, spokesperson of the communities, who spoke to the media after a peaceful protest yesterday at the main entrance of the company, said that they experience flooding during the rainy season “because the new factory which is built in the community often blocked the waterways.”He claimed that the current demolition exercise that CEMENCO is undertaking will pose serious risks to their health.“This peaceful protest is to create awareness by calling the attention of CEMENCO management to the manner in which they are dismantling the old plant; that it could cause us serious health problems. What we want them to do is to stop and hire a professional company; and if they do not stop, we will take legal action against them,” said Dennis.He alleged that the company hired by CEMENCO does not have the equipment to do the work properly and “is not licensed by the government of Liberia through the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).”He claimed that there is a sickness or disease called “asbestosis,” which comes from asbestos, adding that if the sheets are not dismantled properly they will cause lung cancer for residents.“Last week, we met the management of the company and they denied that they were not dismantling the plant and said in fact they do not have asbestos. But interestingly, when you look at the plant, it tells you that they are carrying on the demolition,” he said.He therefore called on the national government and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to intervene so as to save their communities from “environmental calamity.”Meanwhile, officials at CEMENCO contacted refused to comment or address the issue.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
A mother is calling for justice after saying that even though bandits broke into her home and dragged her out of bed by her hair after chopping her son several times, one of the alleged perpetrators has only been charged with armed robbery and no mention was made of the wounding.Bebi AliIt was on August 4, 2019 that gunmen entered the house through a door that was left open and chopped 30-year-old Rene Anthony Juman of Lot 162 Angoy’s Avenue, New Amsterdam, leaving him with a fractured skull and a broken shoulder after he was chopped several times. Four of his front teeth were also knocked out by the bandits.His father, 50-year-old Mohamed Ishmael, was choked during the home invasion. Moreover, Bebi Ali was hit with a crowbar and dragged from her bed after the bedroom door was forcefully opened.Some of the injuries to Rene Anthony JumanOn Wednesday, one of the suspects, Victor Sealey, appeared before Magistrate Renata Singh at the Reliance Magistrate Court and was not required to plea to the charge of robbery under arms.It is alleged that on August 4, at Angoy’s Avenue, he robbed Juman of two silver chains.After the charge was read, Magistrate Singh, seeing the reaction from Ali— who was on her feet as one of the Virtual Complainants— asked her if she had something to say.The woman then revealed that the charge as stated did not represent the statement she and her son had given to the Police.After the court hearing, she told Guyana Times that she needs justice.“I told the Magistrate, ‘No, that is not my story. That he go in our house, chop up my son, break my door’. I don’t know why the Police did not send the statements…”In Court on Wednesday, the woman explained that her son received life threatening injuries. The break and enter charge, she said, came as a surprise given the magnitude of the injuries.Back in August, the family had reported that three cellular phones were on a table when the bandits entered and they did not interfere with them; they only demanded money and jewellery.According to Ali, she had given two statements to the Police and those statements were not in the Police file that the prosecutors had on Wednesday.“My first statement had everything that take place; how they break the door and what happen to my son, beat my husband, knock me and pull me out of the bed from the room by my hair and everything”.The second statement, she explained, included the names of the suspects.According to Ali, she did not provide that information to the Police initially because of fear and the fact that when she was with her son, who was transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital for some time, Ishmael was left alone in the house.“It is after I got him out of the house that I gave the Police the second statement,” she said.Following Ali’s report to the court, the Magistrate said she is of the opinion that something was not right and advised that she contacts the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).Meanwhile, a Police source confirmed that following the arrest of Sealey, a file was prepared and sent to the DPP for advice and he was subsequently charged.Sealey was placed on $100,000 bail and will have to return to Court on November 6.The matter has been transferred the New Amsterdam Magistrate’s Court.
The USA Today reported Tuesday that Major League Baseball attornies will be in Albany, N.Y., today to speak with the district attorney that initiated the initial investigation that brought Matthews’ name to the forefront. Moreno was quoted in Tuesday’s editions of the Arizona Republic sounding like he is just about at wits end. Moreno doesn’t want the team’s fans to be left in the dark and he is unable to provide answers to many of their questions. “It’s very frustrating,” Moreno said. “(Matthews) needs to make a statement to the fans. Our feelings were the best way was to be pro-active and talk to the fans immediately.” Moreno promises some type of resolution before the regular seasons begins, but they clearly are unable to force their will on Matthews, who has hired high-profile attorney Robert Shapiro to defend him. Matthews is following Shapiro’s advice with his no-comment stance. Halo highlights SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. As the Gary Matthews Jr. situation drags on, the Angels front office impatiently waits for some kind of resolution. Owner Arte Moreno is upset, general manager Bill Stoneman is shaking his head and Matthews is keeping quiet. “It’s certainly not an ideal way to start a five-year relationship with a guy,” Stoneman said before Tuesday’s game against the San Francisco Giants. A week ago Matthews’ name surfaced in an investigation of Internet pharmacies accused of illegally selling human growth hormone. A day later, a report on Sports Illustrated’s Web site alleged that Matthews not only had ordered human growth hormone, it said when the order took place and where it was shipped. Bartolo Colon had an eight-minute bullpen session and reported no discomfort. Colon, who had rotator cuff damage last season, was on a mound for the first time since July.

“We’ve come here four times and won four games, so we believe we can win here all the time now,” said Brown, afer Celtic ended a Rangers six-game winning run that had sparked suggestions of an unlikely title challenge.“They did a lot of talking beforehand – we stayed quiet. We usually do our talking on the park.”Rangers’ wait for a first league win over Celtic since 2012 continues, but they looked set to stretch their recent fine run when they twice went in front through Josh Windass and Daniel Candeias in the first-half.Rangers failed to hold either lead for long as first Tom Rogic and then Moussa Dembele equalised. The hosts failed to exploit Jozo Simunovic’s red card just before the hour mark before Edouard came off the bench to score the winner.“It’s incredibly tough,” said Rangers manager Graeme Murty. “We were punished by not doing the basics very well.”– ‘Immense performance’ –Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers were forced to hand a debut to goalkeeper Scott Bain due to a late injury picked up by Dorus de Vries, and the replacement played a big part in helping the champions seal a record fourth straight win at Ibrox.“It feels great,” Rodgers said after the victory. “It was an immense performance considering we went behind very early in the game.”“You can see the intensity in the stadium today. It was an incredible football match to be involved in.”Bain’s first involvement was to pick the ball out of his net after a terrible error by Dedryck Boyata, who gifted possession to Windass. The Rangers winger strode forward before blasting his 17th goal of the season.Rangers’ early joy lasted just eight minutes as Rogic replied in spectacular fashion, curling into the top corner from 25 yards.Rangers quickly reestablished their lead thanks to more poor Celtic defending.Declan John’s low cross evaded a host of bodies and fell for Candeias to fire home at the far post.Again Celtic responded brightly and Wes Fotheringham was forced into brilliant saves to deny Dembele and Callum McGregor.The visitor’s pressure paid off in first-half stoppage time when Dembele rounded off a frantic half by lobbing Fotheringham for his sixth goal in eight games against Rangers.After a brief lull after the break, Rangers seemed to have been handed the upper hand once more when Simunovic was shown a straight red card for what the referee’s assistant deemed to be an elbow on Morelos.However, despite their numerical advantage, Rangers were caught cold by a clinical Celtic counter-attack.Edouard had only been on the field two minutes before he collected Dembele’s layoff and then cut inside to curl high into the far corner.In contrast to their defending earlier in the game, Celtic’s 10 men largely soaked up Rangers’ pressure trouble free.But they were enjoyed a huge let off two minutes from time when Bain saved Windass’s low effort and Morelos somehow turned the rebound onto the post with the goal gaping from point-blank range.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Substitute Odsonne Edouard (R) came on to score the winner for 10-man Celtic 21 minutes from time to open up a nine-point lead over Rangers © AFP/File / Franck FIFEGLASGOW, United Kingdom, Mar 11 – Celtic captain Scott Brown dismissed talk of Rangers challenging for the Scottish title after his side twice trailed and played more than 30 minutes a man short yet won 3-2 at Ibrox on Sunday.Substitute Odsonne Edouard’s winner for the 10 men, 21 minutes from time opened up a nine-point lead over Rangers.
