Phillips still stuck in Australia

first_img(CMC) – Barbados and West Indies left-hander Omar Phillips has been forced to wait even longer before he can return home, after the Australian state of Victoria extended its state of emergency for another four weeks, in response to the continued spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic.Australia closed its borders last month to mitigate against rising cases of the virus and while the travel ban does not apply to international departures, several airlines have grounded flights until May-June, leaving hundreds of travellers stranded.Based in Melbourne where he has been playing for Stratmore Cricket Club, the 33-year-old Phillips was scheduled to return home on April 12 but as tension heightened amidst the outbreak, he re-booked his ticket for March 23.However, that flight was subsequently cancelled and attempts to secure a flight for the following day also proved futile.Perhaps the biggest blow to his chances of leaving Australia came earlier this week when Victoria, of which Melbourne is the capital, extended its shutdown for another four weeks until May 11.“Every day it’s something new so I’ve just got to play by ear at the moment. I’m just waiting on word on when they will start back flights,” Phillips said.“(The club) has been great, (they’ve been) fantastic. It’s a good family club and everyone’s been chipping in and trying to make sure I’m as comfortable as possible because it’s not easy being away especially in this time.“For me, I have to give them top marks because before they realised how serious it was, they had certain measures in place to make sure I was comfortable and they made a promise to my Mom that they would look after me so I really have to tip my hat to them.”Phillips, an opener, played two Tests for West Indies as part of a second-string team during the tumultuous players’ strike of 2009, when Bangladesh toured West Indies.He narrowly missed out on joining an illustrious club of batsmen with centuries on debut when he perished for 94 in the first innings at Arnos Vale in Kingstown.Overall, he has played 57 first-class matches and scored a single hundred but has not featured in the domestic championship in nearly two years.Phillips said he was trying to make the best use of the time while the city remained under the state of emergency.“I’ve been on a couple bike rides out just to get some exercise. The gym I was in do the online fitness courses so it’s been good,” he explained.“Staying indoors can be mentally challenging especially for someone who is not accustomed to being locked indoors all day.”Australia has already recorded nearly 6 500 infections and 63 deaths. Victoria, meanwhile, has reported 1 291 infections and 14 deaths, and Premier Daniel Andrews said he had not yet ruled out extending the curfew “well beyond” the May 11 date.last_img read more

AFCON: Gabon Set for Showdown with Cameroon

first_imgCameroon and Gabon will be out to book their places in the knockout stages of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations when they do battle at the Stade de l’Amitié in Libreville this evening. Hosts Gabon have yet to win a game at this year’s showpiece with the Panthers held to successive 1-1 draws.Following a shock stalemate against AFCON newbies Guinea-Bissau in the opening game of the tournament, Gabon failed to take their chances as they were held to the same scoreline by 2013 finalists Burkina Faso. Now with arguably their biggest test still to come, head coach José Antonio Camacho will be hoping that his team can finally find their rhythm with pressure mounting on the Spaniard.Gabon have been dealt a further blow with news that Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina has been ruled out of action for the rest of the tournament, subsequently placing further pressure on the likes of captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Sunderland midfielder Didier N’Dong. “Failing to beat Burkina Faso was frustrating because we now have to wait for outcome of the Cameroon game. We had several chances but we did not convert them though the players gave their best and attacked piling pressure on Burkina Faso,” Camacho told supersport.com.“We had hoped for a win but it did not come. I know the frustrations from our fans but we hope to atone despite having a tough fixture against Cameroon.”He continued: “I am optimistic we will qualify for the quarterfinals even though a lot of pundits have written us off after the draw. As a coach I have to keep on encouraging and motivating my players to keep the focus and work hard on the pitch.”Cameroon head into the fixture top of Group A with four points – all four teams can still book their place in the knockout stages with Guinea-Bissau sitting on a single point.The Indomitable Lions were held to a 1-1 draw by Burkina Faso in their opening game before the four-time champions bounced back from an early setback to beat Guinea Bissau 2-1 with goals from Sébastien Siani and Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui securing all three points for the Hugo Broos’ coached team.“Being Cameroon, you’re forced to fight until the end and despite the fact we went a goal down, the team reacted well and earned an important win that was simply an amazing comeback,” Broos told supersport.com.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

(AP Photo/Tyler Kaufman)ExpandNEW ORLEANS – A purple exercise ball in the visiting locker room was as good a seat as any to watch the must-see game of Sunday afternoon.As Michigan State and Duke tipped off, LeBron James leaned back on top of the ball, lounging in shorts, flip-flops and socks. Moments later, Kyle Kuzma pulled up a chair a few feet away, eyes focused on the screen as he grazed at an early dinner.Neither would play in the game that would tip off nearly an hour later – a 130-102 Lakers win that was much less compelling viewing, albeit a gritty effort.It was the first game the Lakers played since announcing James won’t play for the rest of the season. The Pelicans, who have limited Anthony Davis’ minutes since he requested a trade in January, did not play their All-Star either. Kuzma was a late scratch with apparent left ankle tendinitis.

And to that group’s credit, they delivered as James sat courtside dressed in black from head to toe.“This time of the season, a lot of guys are trying to get stats,” coach Luke Walton said. “But if someone was open we were making the extra pass and guys were cheering for each other and having a good time.”It was a stage for second-year guard Alex Caruso to showcase a career-best 23-point performance. That included a third-quarter sequence in which he hit a long three, notched a breakaway dunk off a steal and took a charge as the Lakers outscored the Pelicans by 22 in the pivotal frame. The team totaled 30 assists on the night.Since joining the regular rotation, Caruso is averaging 10.7 points while shooting 47 percent from 3-point range. Sitting with his feet in an ice bath post game — a common media set-up for James when he plays — Caruso said he’s looking for more than a few good games: He’d like a permanent roster spot rather than a contract that splits his time between the G League.“Every game for me is a job application,” he said. “It’s me going out there and showing this is where I’m supposed to be. I’m one of the best 350, 400 players in the world and I want to be in this league.” How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Rajon Rondo – who left the game temporarily in the second half to stitch up a cut on his forehead – finished with a 24-point, 12-assist double-double, his second straight strong game for the depleted Lakers.A recent ESPN report cited that James made a raspberry sound to express disapproval of how the Lakers’ experiment went this season, with the front office surrounding him with playmakers instead of shooters. After the win, in which the Lakers scored more points in regulation than only other one game this season, Rondo spoke up for the other argument: That there wasn’t enough time with a healthy roster to come to a more definitive conclusion.“I just don’t think we had a fair opportunity,” he said. “That experiment didn’t work, probably because we had probably 100 games total missed of court appearances. I can’t really comment on whether it was a good or bad thing. I’m not really sure.”On Sunday night, it was probably as much about the caliber of competition: No Pelican scored more than Julius Randle’s 17 points. Davis wore a suit as well, and he stopped to talk to James on his way out of the arena after the game.It was the Lakers’ fourth win in their last five games, and with 35 wins, they’ve matched last season’s total with five games remaining on the schedule. Walton has, at times, seemed unable to explain why his team is suddenly playing well with nothing on the line, but he’s also enjoying some aspect of it as well.“For where we’re at,” Walton said, “it’s been fun to coach this group lately, and the way they’ve been playing out there.” Job applications may also be on the minds of some other veteran Lakers who will see their contracts expire at the end of the season.JaVale McGee added 23 points and 16 rebounds, his fourth double-double in his last five games. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (19 points), Reggie Bullock (19 points) and Mike Muscala (10 points) all found ways to make an impact.Related Articleslast_img read more

Paco: “It is as important to finish LaLiga as its quality, that it is not a single against married”

first_img“The important thing is the people. We will see ourselves immersed in an ERTE and that creates uncertainty” The goal of the season for Paco remains the same and the margin, a little higher than the rest of the teams. Rayo is still pending the postponed match against Albacete. “We are eleven and a half short. Our idea is to get into the playoff and for this we have to try to make a strong start. We came from a spectacular inertia, but that has already been lost and we all started from scratch, “he explained. To achieve this, will they be able to count on those players who end their contracts on June 30?” The pertinent organizations will have to make this clear, but applying the logic, the contracts will be extended until the end of the course “.Paco, Sandoval, Fran Fernández and Ramis agreed in their applause and thanks to all the professionals who have taken a step forward in this coronavirus crisis. “These situations bring out the best and worst in people, but the human being is so stupid that he forgets quickly and surely in five years we will be as stupid as now. Hopefully it will last several generations“the rayista coach concluded. BEHIND CLOSED DOORS YOUR PLAYERS Paco Jémez addressed the hypothetical future that LaLiga holds, during a gathering on-line organized by the coaching school of the Royal Madrid Football Federation (RFFM), in which Sandoval, Ramis, Fran Fernández also participated and which was moderated by Petón. “I have no doubt that the championship will end, I do not think we will reach 2021. You have to find a place to finish it as soon as possible and that other future competitions are not compromised. No problem to play in the summer. Of course, it will be very difficult to do it in front of people. We are getting used to the idea that it will be without an audience. We are concerned about health and we want it to be risk-free if we compete “, started the franjirrojo coach.It would not be Paco’s first experience without spectators in the stands. He already faced it during his time in Mexico at the head of the Cruz Azul. “It was against Veracruz. A very strange thing. Only the screams of the players and coaches could be heard. The essence was missing, which is the people“he recalled and added:” Acclimating to that is more mental than physical. We will have to adapt. When we start there will be no excuses and the set-up will also make us return to routines and put everyone in their place. “Beyond that, the coach knows that he will have his staff to death:” I trust them and I know when I have to squeeze them they will be there. Definitely“center_img “We are getting used to the idea of ​​playing without an audience. We will have to adapt because the essence is missing, which is the people” In addition to the physical is the emotional aspect of footballers. Something to which the coaches attach great importance. In these tough times … the answer is empathy. “We are at your disposal to help you in any way possible. He just caught me like a dog. I have my daughter studying here in Madrid, my mother and sister in Córdoba, my wife and my other daughter is in A Coruña … And the same players, some have their family in another country. And the shit we have on top is so big … that thinking about football is difficult for me now. With this pile of shit around, talking about football can be frivolous for people, “reflected Paco. While the competition resumes or not, all the technicians have sent homework to their pupils in the hope that a set-up can be done before starting. “I know they work at home, they have their planning and material was brought to them. We send them videos to entertain and memorize what they usually do, but the important thing is to care about people and we will be immersed in some ERTE that create uncertainty. When we return we will need almost a preseason. The longer we stand, the more we will need later. I do not get accounts so that the competition has a minimum of rigor …“argued Mr. Rayista.Paco asks for a minimum of three weeks of preseason so that the group can be at the top again. “It is as important to start the competition as it is of quality and we do not see a single against married. Let’s see if the races are going to make us destroy it: it can bring injuries, decreased performance … “, explained the coach, who also spoke about the new problems looming on the horizon:” We are getting into an unknown scenario, playing in summer with extreme temperatures, every 72 hours, without an audience, perhaps without youth squad … Is a fregao where we will go around the cakes as they come to us. Although we will all be in the same conditions. “last_img read more
