Patient perseverance provides success for Cornwall

Patience and persistence, they say, are the providers of progress which Rahkeem Cornwall continues to learn every time he takes the field.

The 24-year-old from Antigua was the most successful Windies “A” bowler in the second “Test” against Sri Lanka “A” which ended in three days last Saturday at the Trelawny Multiplex.


Zimbabwe wobble as Bishoo leads Windies fightback

So far it has been a case of living by the sword, dying by the sword in this first Test between Zimbabwe and the Windies at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo. After Zimbabwe had deployed spin bowling so effectively to bundle out the Caribbean side for 219 on the first day – with captain Graeme Cremer leading the charge with a four-wicket haul – the visitors simply returned the favour on Sunday, skittling the home side for 159 just before tea.

Legspinner Devendra Bishoo was the chief tormentor, claiming five wickets, while there were two each for the captain Jason Holder and Kemar Roach.


Cricket Australia calls on fans to help Australia #BeatEngland

With an Ashes summer rapidly approaching, Cricket Australia has put out a rallying cry to fans around the country to get behind our Australian women’s and men’s cricket teams under the banner #BeatEngland.

The #BeatEngland campaign is built upon a simple truth – nothing brings Australia together like the prospect of seeing our cricketers beat the old enemy on home soil, and this summer fans will have plenty of opportunities to show their passion and throw their support behind our women’s and men’s teams in the pursuit of victory. 


Taylor, Jarvis in Zimbabwe side to face West Indies

Brendan Taylor and Kyle Jarvis are set to make their return to international cricket when Zimbabwe face West Indies in a two-match Test series scheduled to start this weekend. The two players, who recently returned to the national fold after spending some seasons in English county cricket, are part of the 16-man squad selected for the series in Bulawayo.

Solomon Mire is in line to make his Test debut, while the uncapped wicketkeeper Nyasha Mayavo has also made the cut.


Hard work paying off for Damion Jacobs

Damion Jacobs said there was no magic formula or secret to his success in the first “Test against Sri Lanka “A”, rather it was down to hard work, pure and simple.

The Windies “A” leg-spinner earned the Player-of-the-Match award following a haul of six wickets in the Sri Lankans’ second innings which propelled the hosts to an innings-and-13-run victory in the weather-affected match which ended at the Trelawny Multiplex on Saturday.
