Ambrose lauds Skerritt’s administration

first_img(CMC) – Legendary fast bowler Sir Curtly Ambrose has lauded the Ricky Skerritt administration for immediately confronting and attempting to fix the player issues facing West Indies cricket.Prior to Skerritt’s election as Cricket West Indies (CWI) president a year ago, several experienced players remained at loggerheads with the Dave Cameron-led board and often declined selection while others opted for retirement.However, with Skerritt immediately overhauling the selection process and announcing his intention to use a player-centred approach to governance, the Caribbean side has seen the return of players like Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo and Lendl Simmons.“CWI before Ricky Skerritt’s tenure has had major issues with players and the board, and a lot of players just didn’t want to represent the West Indies because of issues,” Sir Curtly said here.“What I like about his (Skerritt) thing is that he brought all the players back in, meaning that everyone can be available for selection so we can try and find the strongest West Indies teams and that, to me, is a good thing.”Simmons was recalled after 2-½ years in the wilderness while Bravo ended his retirement and earlier this year made his first appearance in nearly four years for the Caribbean side.Pollard, whose appearances had also been infrequent, was appointed captain of the white-ball sides last September, despite having not played a single One-Day International in three years.Sir Curtly, a former West Indies bowling coach, said Pollard’s appointment had been a progressive move by selectors.“I like the idea of bringing Pollard as captain and I’ve said that before, in the ODIs and T20s,” said the Antiguan, who snatched 405 wickets from 98 Tests.“I think he is a fantastic leader. I have a lot of respect for him. He knows how to get the best out of his players and it is going to take a little time as well because we are so far behind.”Despite the positive moves by Skerritt regarding player involvement, Sir Curtly said the former tourism minister in St Kitts had a massive job on his hands in rescuing West Indies cricket.“West Indies cricket generally has been in a serious decline for about 20 years and even though president Skerritt and his crew have a lot of things they want to put in place, it is almost impossible to fix West Indies cricket in one year and not even one term, because one term is two years,” Sir Curtly argued.“It is going to take a lot longer than two years to really implement the things that they want to implement.”last_img read more

Fresh Two-year FIFA Ban Looms for Adamu

first_imgYesterday, the report of the adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee of FIFA chaired by Hans-Joachim Eckert, recommended a two-year ban for the former director general of the National Sports Commission.In November 2013, Adamu was allegedly to have agreed to receive £500,000 in order to influence the voting procedure with his vote for the 2018 FIFA World Cup bid. The sting operation was carried out by UK-based Sunday Times.However, the report of the fresh matter before FIFA is the outcome of the investigations opened on March 9, 2015, two years after Adamu finished serving his three-year ban for that sting operation.According to FIFA, the investigations against Adamu conducted by Dr Cornel Borbély, chairman of the investigatory chamber of the Ethics Committee, were opened on March 9 2015 and the final report was passed to the adjudicatory chamber on December 2, 2016.“In the final report, the investigatory chamber recommends a sanction of a two-year ban from all football-related activities (administrative, sports and any other) and a fine of 20,000 Swiss Franc for violations of arts 13, 15 and 19 of the FIFA Code of Ethics (FCE).“The adjudicatory chamber under its Chairman Hans-Joachim Eckert has studied the report carefully and decided to institute formal adjudicatory proceedings against Mr Adamu.“In the course of the proceedings, the party (Adamu) will be invited to submit his position including any evidence with regard to the final report of the investigatory chamber (art. 70 par. 2 of the FCE), and may request a hearing (art. 74 par. 2 of the FCE),” stressed the statement.However for fair hearing, FIFA declined to further details of the matter as the former Nigerian sports administrator is deemed innocent until final verdict of the case.“For reasons linked to privacy rights and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty, the adjudicatory chamber will not publish further details at the present time,” concludes the statement.Adamu was filmed in the Sunday Times sting in 2010 asking undercover reporters posing as bidders for $800,000 to influence his World Cup hosting vote, saying he wanted the money paid to him personally so he could finance soccer fields in Nigeria.He was suspended and not allowed to take part in the December 2010 votes, then banned for three years by FIFA. He failed in two appeals against his sanction. Adamu is not the only football administrator to face FIFA’s sanctions.Several others including former President Sepp Blatter and former UEFA chief, Mitchel Platini, are currently serving several years sanctions from all football related activities.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Duro IkhazuagbeThree years after he completed serving a three-year ban for ethical violation former CAF and FIFA Executive Committees member, Dr Amos Adamu, is in fresh trouble that may earn him another two-year ban from all football related activities.last_img read more

Spurs could have signed £80million-rated Villa skipper Grealish for just £6m

first_imgDANIEL LEVY will be hoping his determination to drive a hard bargain does not come back to haunt him at Villa Park this afternoon.Tottenham chairman Levy  watches his club’s  Premier League clash against Aston Villa knowing he could have signed the hosts’ £80MILLION skipper Jack Grealish for £6M just 18 months ago.3 Tottenham could have bought Villa skipper Jack Grealish for just £6mCredit: Getty Images – GettyVilla, then cash strapped and in the Championship, were willing to sell their star man for that meagre price as they desperately needed the money.Club chiefs were in a race against time to pay off  debt and save Villa from the prospect of going into administration — or even worse. It was July  2018 and Levy and  the squad were literally at the airport waiting to head off to Los Angeles for a pre-season tour.But the Spurs supremo believed he could get Grealish for £5m, or even £4m, so he decided to make Villa sweat and boarded the plane.3 Grealish (pictured to the left) is now reported to be valued at £80millionCredit: Getty Images – GettyIt turned out to be a  big mistake because by the time he landed in LA 11 hours later, Villa  had been bought by billionaires Nassef  Sawiris and Wes Edens.And that meant they were no longer skint and in desperate need of cash . . . so their asking price for Grealish was up to £40m.Spurs considered lining up another bid of £20m, but Levy knew it would be rejected so they pulled out of the race to sign the former England Under-21 star.3Grealish was gutted as he had set his heart on a switch to the North London club.But he managed to put that disappointment behind him as he  led his boyhood idols Villa back into the Premier League via the play-offs last season.Grealish, 24, has kicked on again this term and his outstanding displays have caught the eyes of Europe’s top  clubs — including Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United.The Red Devils are believed to be lining up an £80m summer swoop for the playmaker.Most read in footballFOUR-TUNE TELLERSRugby league working on four potential restart dates as finals may switchIT’S AL GOODTottenham star Alderweireld buys iPads and laptops to help coronavirus victimsASHES FLICKEREngland’s Ashes series against Australia not cancelled yet despite concerns’MENTALITY MISTAKES’Jose blames Wolves defeat on mistakes and demands Spurs be ‘ruthless’NDOM-BELLYSpurs fans demand trophy after pancake world record is set at Tottenham StadiumGossipSPURS SAY ALTAYTottenham ‘to negotiate £20m transfer for Fenerbahce goalkeeper Bayindir’MIXED EMOTIONSJose delighted with Bergwijn’s Spurs debut but fumes over Sterling tackleMAKE YOUR DEBUT Bet £5 get £20 in free bets for new customers at LadbrokesLevy — widely regarded as one of the toughest negotiators in football — must be kicking himself.While Grealish, must have no regrets about it now the way his career has panned out.But you cannot help but wonder how differently things could have turned out for all parties, had Spurs snapped up Grealish for that bargain fee when they had the chance.last_img read more

Clinical Crusaders crush Highlanders

first_imgChasing their eighth title and first since 2008, the Crusaders will remain in Christchurch next week to meet either the Stormers or the Chiefs who play later on Saturday in Cape Town.RNZI reports driving rain and wind greeted both teams at a sodden AMI Stadium, but the conditions played into the hands of the home side’s dominant pack while dampening the Highlanders’ attacking firepower.Front-rowers Joe Moody and Codie Taylor rumbled over for tries to drive the Crusaders to a 17-0 lead at halftime that the Highlanders were unable to budge in the second half.”It wouldn’t have been the prettiest to watch but both sides just got on with it and didn’t complain,” a shivering Crusaders captain Sam Whitelock said pitchside.”The weather was great for us and we really embraced it, we knew if we could be clean on the penalty count we would give ourselves a great opportunity.”With severe flooding and three South Island regions under a state of emergency, the Highlanders’ preparations were thrown into disarray by the weather, their flight to Christchurch cancelled on Friday and their arrival delayed until seven hours before kickoff.The 2015 champions hardly laid a finger on the ball in the first half and committed a rash of penalties to give the Crusaders all the momentum.”I thought technically they were probably a bit smarter in the way they played,” Highlanders captain Ben Smith said.”Once they got down into our 22, they used the ball really wisely.”The Highlanders emerged after the break with renewed commitment and stopped their opponents from scoring but were unable to capitalise on their few drives forward.Crusaders flyhalf Richie Mo’unga slotted an early penalty but missed another shot 20 minutes later that would have stretched the lead to 6-0.The Crusaders’ forwards then flexed their muscles, however, winning a decisive scrum near the half-hour mark to win a five-metre line-out.A few minutes of bashing against the Highlanders’ defence along the try-line ended with referee Angus Gardner awarding a contentious pick-and-go try to prop Moody under a pile of players.Controversy threatened again five minutes later, when the Crusaders rumbled over from a line-out drive and were awarded the try on the field.It was cancelled moments later after the television match official was unable to see the ball grounded.It scarcely mattered, as the Crusaders rumbled forward again, allowing hooker Taylor to score another pick-and-go try on the stroke of halftime.Mo’unga duly converted and the Crusaders maintained their iron-willed discipline to close out a rousing win and warm the hearts of rain-soaked fans in the terraces.last_img read more
