Windies crash to 59-run defeat after Kohli’s 42 nd ODI ton

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, (CMC) – Veteran opener Chris Gayle broke Brian Lara’s record for the most runs by a West Indies batsman in One-Day Internationals but his failure typified the Caribbean side’s brittle batting and overshadowed the achievement, as the hosts crashed to a 59-run defeat under Duckworth-Lewis-Stern in the second ODI here Sunday.Chasing a revised target of 270 off 46 overs following a rain break 13 overs into their run chase at Queen’s Park Oval, West Indies were toppled for 210 with four overs remaining, to fall behind 1-0 in the three-match series.Opener Evin Lewis, playing in front of his home crowd, top-scored with 65 while fellow countryman Nicholas Pooran chimed in with 42 but West Indies lost wickets at key stages to watch their chase come apart at the seams.In fact, they appeared well en route to victory at 148 for three in the 28th over but collapsed and lost their last seven wickets for 62 runs in quick time.Bhuvneshwar Kumar led India’s attack with four for 31 while fellow new-ball seamer Mohammed Shami claimed two for 39 and left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav, two for 59.India captain Virat Kohli had earlier struck his 42nd One-Day International hundred to become his country’s second highest run-scorer in ODIs as the visitors reached 279 for seven off their 50 overs, after choosing to bat first.The right-hander’s polished 120, which also saw him surpass Pakistani Javed Miandad for the highest ODI aggregate against West Indies, left him only behind legend Sachin Tendulkar in India’s all-time ODI scoring charts.He was supported by Shreyas Iyer who stroked 71, the pair putting on 125 for the fourth wicket to stabilise the innings.Kohli struck 14 fours and a six off 125 balls while Iyer’s knock required only 68 balls and included five fours and one six.Seamer Carlos Brathwaite was the best bowler with three for 53 from his 10 overs.West Indies struck as early as the third ball of the morning when left-arm pacer Sheldon Cottrell got one to straighten and trap Shikhar Dhawan lbw for two, courtesy of DRS.Kohli then dominated a 74-run, second wicket stand with an unusually subdued Rohit Sharma whose 18 came from 34 balls before he was taken at point by Nicholas Pooran in the 16th over, attempting to clear the infield with off-spinner Roston Chase.When left-hander Rishabh Pant fell for 20 in the 23rd over, bowled trying to pull a length ball from Brathwaite, India were in need of a partnership and got it through Kohli and Iyer.Kohli started positively with boundaries on either side of the wicket off seamer Kemar Roach in the second over, and he sustained the momentum to reach his half-century off 57 balls at the end of the 15th over, when he steered Brathwaite to the third man ropes.He needed a further 55 deliveries to reach triple figures, with the landmark arriving in the 38th over when he punched pacer and captain Jason Holder to long on for a single.Kohli eventually fell in the 42nd over to a catch in the deep off Brathwaite but India never found the acceleration they wanted in the last 10 overs, and managed only 67 runs.Faced with a challenging but hardly daunting target, West Indies were handed a decent start of 45 off 57 deliveries for the first wicket by Lewis and Gayle.Not for the first time, Gayle struggled with momentum but passed Lara’s mark of 10 405 runs when he took a single to third man at the start of the ninth over.Unsurprisingly, however, he perished in the following over after facing 24 balls for his 11, lbw to a full length delivery from Kumar, with the resulting review more out of desperation than prudence.Shai Hope then played on to left-arm seamer Khaleel Ahmed in the 13th over for five as the Windies reached 56 for two at the rain break.With the target revised, Lewis set about building the foundation for a possible win, facing 80 balls and striking eight fours and a six as he anchored two key partnerships to tilt the balance in the home side’s favour. First, he put on 40 or the third wicket with Shimron Hetmyer (18) before adding a further 56 for the fourth with Pooran.He lost Hetmyer at the end of the 18th over, caught at cover off Kuldeep miscuing a pull before he then departed in the 28th over, hauled in at cover by Kohli also off Kuldeep.Even then, West Indies still looked safe bets to prevail as Pooran struck four fours and a six off 52 balls in a 31-run, fifth wicket stand with Chase (18).But with the partnership threatening, Kumar removed both in the 35th over in a wretched period that saw West Indies lose four wickets for three runs in the space of 14 balls, as India regained control of the contest.INDIAS Dhawan lbw b Cottrell 2Rohit Sharma c Pooran b Chase 18*V Kohli c Roach b Brathwaite 120+R Pant b Brathwaite 20S Iyer b Holder 71K Jadhav run out 16R Jadeja not out 16B Kumar c Roach b Brathwaite 1Mohammed Shami not out 3Extras (b1, w9, nb2) 12TOTAL (7 wkts, 50 overs) 279Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Dhawan), 2-76 (Sharma), 3-101 (Pant), 4-226 (Kohli), 5-250 (Iyer), 6-258 (Jadhav), 7-262 (Kumar)Did not bat: K Yadav, Khaleel AhmedBowling: Cottrell 10-0-49-1 (w2), Roach 7-0-54-0 (w2, nb1), Holder 9-0-53-1 (w1), Thomas 4-0-32-0 (w2, nb1), Chase 10-1-37-1, Brathwaite 10-0-53-3 (w2).WEST INDIES (target: 270 off 46 overs)C Gayle lbw b Kumar 11E Lewis c Kohli b Kuldeep Yadav 65+S Hope b Khaleel Ahmed 5S Hetmyer c Kohli b Kuldeep Yadav 18N Pooran c Kohli b Kumar 42R Chase c and b Kumar 18*J Holder not out 13C Brathwaite c Mohammed Shami b Jadeja 0K Roach b Kumar 0S Cottrell c Jadeja b Mohammed Shami 17O Thomas lbw b Mohammed Shami 0Extras (b4, lb5, w11, nb1) 21TOTAL (all out, 42 overs) 210Fall of wickets: 1-45 (Gayle), 2-52 (Hope), 3-92 (Hetmyer), 4-148 (Lewis), 5-179 (Pooran), 6-179 (Chase), 7-180 (Brathwaite), 8-182 (Roach), 9-209 (Cottrell), 10-210 (Thomas).Bowling: Kumar 8-0-31-4 (w1), Mohammed Shami 8-0-39-2 (w2), Khaleel Ahmed 7-0-32-1 (w2), Kuldeep Yadav 10-0-59-2 (w1), Jadhav 5-0-25-0 (w1), Jadeja 4-0-15-1 (nb1).Man-of-the-Match: Virat Kohli.last_img read more

Alpena Senior Citizens Center Offering 2 New Programs to Encourage Healthy Eating Habits

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisThe Alpena Senior Citizens Center is about to start offering two new free back–to–back six-week educational programs from Michigan State University Cooperative Extension.Starting April 4th Nutrition Instructor, Amy Page will be speaking to seniors in a class called ‘Eat Smart, Live Strong.’“It’s a one week class, it’s an hour long each week, and what it is, is a class that teaches seniors how to adopt new healthy lifestyle behaviors, and how to increase their vegetable consummation on a daily basis, how to incorporate simple physical activities that they can do at home. When they participate in the class, we do simple chair exercises, nothing too hard, again showing them things that they can do at home,” Page said.March is National Nutrition Month; Page said both programs would help seniors with chronic illnesses.“As a society we have an obesity epidemic. We have a lot of heart disease, and a lot of high cholesterol issues…diabetes…those are all major conditions that people do face on a daily basis and even though most of the seniors who will be participating in these classes may already have these conditions, tips that I can give to them will help manage those chronic health conditions,” she explained.Eating healthy plays a major role in everyone’s daily life.“Just developing a health lifestyle in general will help the mindset, it will help how your sleep patterns how you feel, such as depression, and how your emotions are, and things like that. So it’s important for an overall well–being,” she added.The second program, ‘Eat Healthy, Be Active’ begins June 6th and will allow seniors to receive $10 for every class to go out and buy fruits and veggies at farmer markets and local grocery stores.Each program will be held at Alpena Public Safety Building at 501 West Chisholm Street.

Jameis Winston would have had an easy decision had Steelers been a real option

first_img Colbert has maintained through the offseason he is comfortable with Rudolph moving forward. Why that’s hard to believe when one looks at backup quarterbacks such as Sean Mannion (Vikings), Matt Barkley (Bills) or Nick Mullens (49ers) is hard to say.But it’s not nearly so hard to believe as why Winston — with tens of millions of dollars at stake should he prove himself worthy of a starting spot elsewhere — would decline the chance to see if Roethlisberger can last 16 games for only the seventh time in 16 years.He wouldn’t. No one in his circumstance would. Option No. 2: Play behind a quarterback who missed 14 games just last year because of an elbow injury that required major surgery.According to, he chose the situation where he was far less likely to be needed to play.Well, Winston did throw 30 interceptions last year, so I guess his decision-making ability could be questioned. But even he could see which of those situations was more promising.MORE: ‘Humbled’ Winston eager to work, learn with SaintsIt is quite obvious the Steelers (Option No. 2) never offered a contract to Winston. The Tampa report was refuted hours later by morning, on Pittsburgh radio station KDKA-FM, Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert declared the team was not in the market for a veteran backup for Ben Roethlisberger, whose absence from so much of the 2019 season almost certainly cost the Steelers a playoff spot.DRAFT WHAT-IF: Big Ben as a Brown?”We’re always going to watch what’s out there. It’s my job to evaluate any position, any player that’s out there,” Colbert told the station’s morning team. “I can honestly say that we absolutely made no negotiation or any offer to any veteran quarterback.”One can logically say if they had, in this circumstance, they’d have themselves a veteran QB. Winston signed for $1.1 million to back up Drew Brees with the Saints, although there are incentives that could add another $3.4 million should Winston be called on to perform in the regular season and playoffs. Such a deal would have been relatively cap-friendly for the Steelers, although they don’t often weigh down contracts with performance incentives.MORE: Projecting who will start for Saints after Brees retiresWhat few apparently want to believe is the Steelers continue to be confident in Mason Rudolph, their third-round pick in 2018, who started eight games last season and posted a 5-3 record but was benched after a poor performance at Cleveland that ended with him being struck on the head by his own helmet. Rudolph was thrown into the lineup in an emergency, when Roethlisberger left midway through the Steelers’ Week 2 game against the Seahawks. Rudolph played well in that game and the following week, on the road against the Super Bowl-bound 49ers. He was injured in Week 5, though, on a high hit by Ravens safety Earl Thomas. He left that game but returned to lead victories against the Rams and Colts, among others. He never was quite as sharp, though.He did throw a pretty touchdown pass when he briefly was reinserted in a must-have road game against the Jets, but his season was ended soon afterward by a hit that left him with a shoulder injury. Jameis Winston started 16 games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season, led the NFL in passing yards and yet found himself out of a job. At that point, we are being asked to believe, he was presented with two options to play as a backup and perhaps get the opportunity to reestablish himself as a starting-quality NFL quarterback.Option No. 1: Play behind a quarterback who has started 97 percent of all regular-season games over the past 15 seasons.

Steven Bergwijn’s amazing journey from kid with beer can to new Spurs hero

first_imgTOTTENHAM’s £27m new boy Steven Bergwijn announced himself to Spurs fans with a stunning strike on his debut against Manchester City.And the Dutch forward will be looking to maintain his scoring streak with the North London giants, as he continues to settle at his new club.13 Steven Bergwijn scored on his Spurs debut against Man CityCredit: Getty Images – Getty13 Bergwijn owes his career to supportive dad, JurgenCredit: Instagram @j_bergwijnOne attribute that stood out in the 2-0 win over Pep Guardiola’s side was 22-year-old Bergwijn’s close control when under pressure.It’s a skill he can thank his dedicated dad for, who religiously tossed balls high up in the air for his young son to try and bring down instantly.The fleet-forward wide man is also no stranger to living the high-life, driving top-of-range Mercedes cars and dating a glamorous missus.But he had to work hard to achieve his dreams of earning a Premier League move.He comes from a loving family – and two years ago shared a cheeky photo on Instagram of himself as a kid with a can of Heineken.CRUYFF COURTWhen Bergwijn was just seven, his early promise saw him scouted by Ajax.After training, he would make his way home to Almere – some 18 miles form Amsterdam and head straight to Cruyff Court.At the tiny turf pitch, he would be joined by Surinam-born dad Jurgen, who would put his boy through his paces.”He’d toss the ball up in the air, like, way, way, waaaay up — and I’d have to bring it down under control in different ways,” Bergwijn told The Players’ Tribune.13 Bergwijn shared this photo on Instagram of him as a child with a can of HeinekenCredit: Instagram @stevenbergwijn13 Dad Jurgen Bergwijn has even more tattoos than his famous sonCredit: Instagram @j_bergwijn”Sometimes on my chest, sometimes with my feet. Because I was a bit smaller than the other kids, my dad knew that winning the ball in the air wasn’t going to be easy for me.”So he’d toss it up, and I’d bring it down. Over and over and over again.”A FATHER’S SACRIFICEAt the age of 13 Bergwijn moved to PSV after falling out with an Ajax coach, and the aspiring footballer became even more reliant upon his dad.Jurgen Bergwijn would drive nearly two hours to get his son to Eindhoven, sleep in the academy’s car park, then drive Steven back.”When I left Ajax at 13 years old to play with PSV, my dad became the only way I could get to Eindhoven to train with my new club,” he said.”Every weekday, we’d wake up at 5:30 a.m, eat breakfast, get in the car, and drive an hour and 45 minutes to Eindhoven for a 9:00 a.m training session.”I’d do all the things my dad taught me on the pitch while, about 200 yards away, he slept in the car in the parking lot. Then I’d come over, knock on the glass, and we’d drive all the way back and I’d go to school.”We did that for nearly two years. Two years.”That was the sacrifice my dad, and my whole family — my mom, sister and brother — made for me.13 Both Bergwijn’s parents were originally from SurinamCredit: Instagram @j_bergwijn13 Bergwijn always had the support of his brother and sister as he worked hard to become a footballerCredit: Instagram @j_bergwijn”They’d make that drive, too, to come watch games and support me whenever they could.”Eventually we moved to Eindhoven and the commute became a lot shorter, and the sleeping in the car finally stopped.”BECOMING A PRO BRINGS ITS TRAPPINGSBergwijn was an established player in the PSV team by the age of 18.And soon he began to enjoy the trappings of what being a top-class footballer brings.While he doesn’t boast a Neymar-like entourage, he does like his cars.His preferred choice of motor is Mercedes, and he’s been seen behind the wheel of a AMG GLE 63 worth around £120,000.Recently, Bergwijn also added a G Wagon to his car collection that has a starting price of around £93,000.Both cars won’t look out of place in North London’s poshest abodes, where the Tottenham and Arsenal’s football elite reside.13 After breaking into PSV’s first team, Bergwijn invested in some nice wheelsCredit: Instagram @stevenbergwijn13 Bergwijn shared a snap on Instagram with his Mercedes AMG GT 63 worth around £120kCredit: Instagram @stevenbergwijn13 Recently, Bergwijn added a £93k Mercedes G Wagon to his garageCredit: Instagram @stevenbergwijnA GIRL CALLED CHLOEBergwijn has reportedly been in a romance with stunning 21-year-old Chloe Jay since 2015.The fashionable Wag is a dancer, model and social media influencer with over 50,000 followers on Instagram.Latest Football featuresHOUSE OF GODMaradona’s teenage home now a quirky museum made to look like it was in 1978TIM VICKERYCunha’s goals for Hertha Berlin show he can succeed Firmino & Jesus for BrazilMAN THEY’RE BADMan Utd’s worst kits include vintage green and gold shirt & ‘cursed’ greyLewdicrousInside Lewandowski’s £7m flat in Poland with private cinema and a golf simulatorExclusiveTIM VICKERYBarcelona target Martinez stood out as a teen because of his talent and graftGONE TO THE DOGSGrealish, Sterling & Noble among Prem stars protected by £25k guard dogsMALIBU STANArsenal owner Kroenke’s £20m Malibu home where Princess Di was set to move inGROOM-ALDORonaldo’s hairstyles through the years, from blond highlights to tight top knotShe often shares snippets of her life online to fans, whether it’s onboard a private yacht in a glamorous holiday setting or getting ready to dine in a posh restaurant – she’s got the art of being a Wag down to a tee.And shortly after Christmas, Chloe stunned fans when she revealed she was expecting the pair’s first child together – a baby boy.They even threw a special party with their loved ones to celebrate the good news.13 Bergwijn dates stunning model Chloe JayCredit: Instagram @chloejaylois13 Jay is an influencer who boasts over 50,000 followers on InstagramCredit: Instagram @chloejaylois13 Jay has taken to Wag life, enjoying the trappings of expensive beach holidaysCredit: Instagram @chloejaylois13 This year Jay and Bergwijn will be welcoming their first child togetherCredit: Instagram @chloejaylois View this post on Instagram As many of you know i’m pregnant and expecting a little baby boy, I have not shared much about it yet, there are many reasons for that.

It depends during that span of time on the players that will develop, but definitely, I think June Mar Fajardo will be a candidate when that time comes,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Still at the peak of his powers, Fajardo is still a mainstay on coach Chot Reyes’ roster for the 2019 Fiba World Cup Asian qualifiers with his resume boosted by his accomplishments in the PBA as a four-time MVP and a five-time champion.And barring any major injuries, Austria is expecting the Cebuano giant to continue having no letups in the growth of his game as the buildup for the country’s hosting of the global basketball extravaganza approaches.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkFajardo will be 33 years old by 2023.Austria also acknowledged that Reyes has an abundance of talent at his disposal with 7-footers Kai Sotto and AJ Edu both part of the “23-for-23” cadet pool.

You can never know what will happen,” Austria said.That’s why Austria has his full belief that Fajardo will still be donning the national tri-colors come 2023.“Maybe if June Mar wins a fifth of sixth MVP, they will think about it,” he said. “We want nothing but to help Gilas be better because they’re representing our homeland.”ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson View comments Go for Gold adds Kent Salado MOST READ LATEST STORIES OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Meralco ‘never the same’ after Almazan injury in PBA Finals Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Scottie Thompson also worthy of Finals MVP, thinks Cone Brian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defense Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
