England pull off biggest WT20 run chase

first_imgMUMBAI, India (AP):England pulled off their greatest World Twenty20 victory yesterday, beating South Africa by two wickets in the highest-ever run chase in the tournament’s history.Joe Root smashed 83 off 44 balls as England survived a very late scare to march to 230-8 in 19.4 overs after South Africa had posted 229-4 on the back of half-centuries from Hashim Amla, JP Duminy, and Quinton de Kock.England openers Jason Roy and Alex Hales had provided a roller-coaster start of 48 runs off just 15 deliveries, and Root motored along the chase by hitting six fours and four sixes against wayward South African bowling.”It’s just nice to contribute to a game of cricket,” Root said. “Be sensible, play smart cricket … and the guys were so calm under pressure.”England’s remarkable performance in the Group One match puts them only second behind West Indies’ highest-ever successful run chase in all Twenty20 Internationals when they made 236-6 against South Africa at Johannesburg last year.South Africa seamers were guilty of giving away 20 extra runs from wide deliveries to help England’s cause.Root combined in a match-winning 75-run fifth wicket stand with Jos Buttler (21) off 36 balls as England rebounded in style after being thumped by the West Indies in the opening group match two days ago.Root was brilliantly caught in the deep off Kagiso Rabada’s full toss delivery in the 19th over, but by that time, England required only 11 off 10 deliveries.With the scores tied, England lost two wickets in the first two balls of the 20th over before Moeen Ali drove to mid-off to complete England’s first win in the tournament.UNCHASEABLESCORE”We’ve all played long enough to know that no score is unchaseable,” South Africa captain Faf du Plessis said. “We said we needed to start with intensity and didn’t do that … the execution of our extras, it makes it very tough because you are always under the pump.”Earlier, Amla blazed 58 off 31 deliveries and de Kock smashed 52 off 24 balls against the same England bowling attack, which was destroyed by West Indies’ Chris Gayle at the same Wankhede Stadium.Duminy joined in South Africa’s runfest with an unbeaten 54 off 28 balls with three fours and three sixes as none of the four England seamers could stem the flow of runs.England captain Eoin Morgan said his side had “to play out of our skin” to win the match. “But there’s a lot of talent in our team if we play with freedom.”last_img read more

Body recovered from Better Hope drain

first_imgPolice on the East Coast of Demerara (ECD) are probing the death of Campbellville, Georgetown resident, Ravin Fowler, whose lifeless body was recovered from a drain at Robert Street, Better Hope North, ECD, on Friday afternoon.Police, along with residents, watch as ranks retrieve Ravin Fowler’s body from a drain in Robert Street, Better Hope North, ECDGuyana Times understands that the 32-year-old man’s body was submerged in the drain near a culvert for almost two hours before it was removed.This newspaper was told that Fowler would often be seen in the area drinking with friends. Reports are the deceased was also imbibing in the area on Friday. Two persons told this publication that he left the company of his drinking buddies and sometime after, he was discovered in the drain.When Guyana Times spoke with the deceased’s friends, they said they had no knowledge of how he ended up in the drain but reasoned that he may have caught a seizure. However, the cause of death will only be drawn from a post-mortem examination which is expected in the coming days.Police ranks in C Division (East Coast Demerara) were on the scene taking statements at the time this newspaper arrived at Better Hope, ECD. Persons in the area and other curious onlookers were standing in disbelief and could be heard saying they recognised the deceased when Police recovered the body from the drain.According to information disclosed, relatives would often argue with the now dead man about the excessive amount of hours he spent in Better Hope rather than being at his Georgetown home where he resided. His brother, Raymond Doorsammy, told Guyana Times that his late sibling was not taking the treatment doctors had prescribed for his seizures.He noted that it was in recent times, that his brother started to consume alcohol heavily. He recalled that he was at work when he received the message of his brother’s demise.Undertakers transported the body to the Lyken Funeral Parlour and an autopsy is expected to be performed on Wednesday. Fowler had no children and leaves to mourn five siblings.last_img read more

At least 18 arrested in L.A. gang probe

first_imgPolice and federal agents carried out raids Thursday against alleged members of a notorious street gang accused of conspiracy and drug trafficking, arresting at least 18 people and seizing stashes of crack cocaine. Nearly 1,000 law enforcement officers conducted sweeps targeting the Black P-Stones street gang – a Bloods set known for its violent history in Los Angeles and Chicago – in parts of Los Angeles’ Baldwin Village area, Hawthorne and Inglewood, FBI officials said. Eight defendants were indicted on federal charges of conspiracy and distributing cocaine base, with the remaining 10 facing various state counts. Another eight indicted on federal charges still were being sought, said J. Stephen Tidwell, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s local office. The gang allegedly made one of its homes in Baldwin Village, a lower-income community in South Los Angeles that’s seen 28 murders and more than 1,500 assaults in the last five years, officials said. Also seized Thursday were weapons, including an AR-15 assault rifle and an AK-47. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Hoping to break up the gang, authorities targeted its leadership. Law enforcement officials said they plan to maintain a large presence in the affected areas in coming months in an effort to keep the group from regenerating. “We won’t forget about this gang,” Tidwell said. “We’ll continue to make sure we’ve … dismantled it.” Though the gang was believed to have partly originated in Chicago during the 1960s, there have been no sweeps there as part of the crackdown, officials said. last_img read more
