Local conditions DUBAI, UAE (CMC): West Indies Test and ODI skipper Jason Holder says the regional team remains a powerful force despite the absence of some top players heading into the series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates. West Indies are missing some of their big stars in the T20s and ODIs, including explosive opener Chris Gayle and all-rounder AndrÈ Russell. Trinidad and Tobago left- handed batsman Evin Lewis was called up to replace Gayle at the last minute, while Kesrick Williams, the fast bowler from St.Vincent and the Grenadines, has replaced Russell. “It’s obviously a big loss to lose certain players, but obviously, we have some very capable players in the dressing room to fill their boots,” said Holder. International circuit “Evin Lewis was called up at the last minute to replace Chris Gayle, and we saw what he did (100 against India at Lauderhill). I don’t think we are short on personnel. It’s just a matter of everyone getting in and getting used to international circuit. “We have played a very vibrant brand of cricket, especially in the limited overs, and I think whoever is coming in has the ability to do the same.” West Indies start their tour with a warm-up game against Emirates Cricket Board XI at the ICC Academy on Tuesday before the opening T20 match against Pakistan on Friday. “We are just looking to start the series well. It is important that we start well,” said Holder, after an intense net session at the ICC academy on Friday. “We are coming off a very good win against India in the T20 series. We are coming in with a bit of confidence and, hopefully, we can carry it in the heat here in Dubai.” One major factor the Caribbean side will have to contend with is the climate in Dubai. The 24-year-old Barbadian, who celebrates his next birthday in November, says his teammates would need to become familiar with local conditions quickly. “I just think it’s a situation where we understand these conditions as best as we can and as quickly as we can and get acclimatised to the conditions here. The heat is not something we are accustomed to,” said Holder. “We come from the Caribbean, which is quite hot – at times it can get hot – but the humidity in the Caribbean is not as it is here. It is just important to acclimatise ourselves to the conditions here as quickly as possible and play the cricket we are accustomed to.” West Indies and Pakistan will play three T20s, three ODIs, and three Test matches.
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Six-day work weeks may become standard for workers in the private sector, according to a leaked email sent to The Ministry of Labour from the troika on Friday.The email called for several changes in labour regulations preceding the next bailout. Most significantly, it proposed a reduction in the cost of hiring and firing workers, and increased flexibility in worker schedules.The troika suggested that employers should be able to fire employees more easily. Specifically, they proposed cutting by half the amount of notice that employees receive before being fired, from 4-6 months to 2-3 months. Similarly, they asked that the compensation workers receive upon retiring be reduced by at least 50 percent, if they receive another pension, and that compensation for workers who are fired be reduced by up to 50 percent.In terms of worker flexibility, the troika called for looser regulations governing working hours, so that employees might work for six days a week, with a minimum rest between shifts of only 11 hours. They also proposed to lift restrictions on switching workers between morning and evening shifts.The troika’s demands are expected to cause increased conflict in the already tense relations between the General Confederation of Greek Labour (GSEE) and the government.

It’s been established that the Thunder and Warriors don’t like each other. More specifically, Russell Westbrook hates the Warriors with every fiber of his being.The dislike boiled over into a physical confrontation during last night’s game, when Steph Curry got into some pushing and shoving with Semaj Christon during a jump ball in the first half. Russell Westbrook jumped right in the middle of the scuffle and shoved Curry.The Warriors easily won the game, 111-95. The hate is real.
