‘WI can compete well without top players’

first_img 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.last_img read more


Province reportedly loses $7.5 million this year in crops

first_imgLargely due to 42.6 millimetres on the second, the full month post was 75, a total normally recorded by the local airport weather station, only in July.However, over 90 per cent of it this year was posted in the first 13 days the month, and with the canola crop harvest hanging in the balance, farmers took advantage of the drier second half of September — combined with double digits highs, on all but four of the next forty days, beginning on the 14th — and got the job done. While it doesn’t apply that much in the Peace Region, the province wide claim for lost crops this year has been placed at $7.5 million.That’s less than half of the ten year average, and it’s a far cry from what was anticipated in mid-summer when southern areas of the province were dealing with drought conditions and farmers were fearing the worst.Overall yields were down but University of the Fraser Valley agriculture expert Tom Bauman concedes the losses weren’t as severe as earlier anticipated.- Advertisement -He attributes that to the fact some fruit crops in the drought hit region surprisingly acclimatized to the heat, and also that, many failed crops weren’t insurable.In this area, Kelly Kassian of Richardson Pioneer says, despite below average precipitation in all of the traditionally heaviest rainfall months of June, July and August, local yields this fall were close to the area norm.As reported earlier, harvest operations were repeatedly interrupted in September when there were ten daily posts of measurable rain even though six of them were less than three millimetres, and four of those less than one.Advertisementlast_img read more


Naked man who caused €66,000 of damage to hotel wants to be role model for his son

first_imgA businessman who caused more than €66,000 of damage to a hotel while naked said he wants to be a role model for his son after he puts his court case behind him.Marketing manager Eamon Devlin damaged four bedrooms in a Co Donegal Hotel and blamed a cocktail of medication and drink for his actions. Letterkenny Circuit Court heard how the 41-year-old had wrecked his own room and then arrived in the lobby of the Ballyliffin Lodge Hotel to tell staff that his room had been ransacked by “gypsies.”His lawyers had pleaded not guilty on his behalf claiming his consumption of the tablets with alcohol had led to a case of “involuntary intoxication.”A two-day trial heard how Devlin booked into the hotel with his three-year-old son as he was going through a divorce and wanted to spend time with his child.The father and son had enjoyed a day out playing pitch and putt at Ballyliffin Golf Club before having a swim and some bar food at the hotel.He had a pint of Carlsberg, an Irish coffee and took a bottle of wine to his room.At 11.30pm Mr Devlin ordered another bottle of wine be brought to his room.However, in the early hours of the morning, around 5am, Mr Devlin arrived in the reception of the hotel naked carrying his son who was in his pyjamas.He asked staff to come to his room, number 214, claiming there was ‘gypsies’ in his room and he needed to get them out.The Ballyliffin Lodge Hotel in which the damage was caused.Night porter, Seamus Henry went to the room but found nothing wrong and that there was nobody else in his room.Around 6am, the night porter received a phonecall from room 215 complaining of shouting in the accused man’s rooms which had been going on for half an hour.Accompanied by another staff member, Mr Henry went upstairs and noticed the corridor was flooded.They used the master key to gain entry to room 214 but had to force the door as it was damaged.Mr Henry said the room was under three inches of water and that sinks had been pulled off the bathroom wall and there was also broken glass everywhere.The court was told that the water later spread to three other rooms and at one stage it appeared that the ceiling of one room almost collapsed.Hotel manager Colm O’Kane said he was telephoned at home to tell him what had happened and he arrived a short time later.He said that Devlin asked him “Did you see them, did you see them? The gypsies? Youse are doing a great job.”Devlin, a marketing manager with a software company in Northern Ireland, was arrested and interviewed at Buncrana Garda station.He blamed a combination of stress, medication and alcohol for his behaviour on the night and offered to pay compensation for the damage saying he was deeply ashamed of what had happened.He told Gardai “I’m a big boy. If that phonecall to room service hadn’t been made I wouldn’t be here.”He said he recalls going into the bathroom but the room went dark and he could not find a way out and believed the gypsies were in the room taking his son.He also said he was taking tablets for an ear infection which he bought in a pharmacy in Northern Ireland and these were called Day and Night Nurse.However, a jury found Mr Devlin guilty.At Letterkenny Circuit Court today he apologised to the staff of the hotel and the Gardai.The court heard that at the time of the incident, Devlin’s ex-wife had told him that she was planning to relocate to America with her son and he was under severe stress.Devlin said he was now trying to get his life back together and can pay €250 a month back to the hotel for the damage of more than €66,000.He said “I apologise to the court for what happened. I am deeply sorry and ashamed. It was totally out of character and it was meant to be a fun weekend with my son. It was irrational behaviour and it should not have happened.“The last five years have been a nightmare for me personally. I want to be a role model for my son. This is a black mark for me. I have to live with this but I want to rebuild my life,” he said.Judge John Aylmer adjourned the case until Friday for sentence.Naked man who caused €66,000 of damage to hotel wants to be role model for his son was last modified: December 6th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BALLYLIFFIN LODGE HOTELdamagedonegalEamon Devlinmedicationnakedsonlast_img read more
