Sir Curtly: Donít sledge

Sat, Jul 4, '15

 

Media Watch

London—Cricketers who sledge opponents are trying to compensate for their own lack of skill, according to one of the greatest fast bowlers in history. The Ashes, which starts in Cardiff on Wednesday, is again expected to be a battleground for verbal intimidation between England’s and Australia’s most aggressive characters.
But Sir Curtly Ambrose, who took 405 wickets in 98 Tests for West Indies, believes the practice is virtually pointless. Bowling with consistent pace and accuracy, the 6ft 8in Ambrose menaced the world’s best batsmen from 1988-2000, while remaining a man of few words. Indeed, Ambrose believes umpires do not punish sledging severely enough.

Pietersen, Fletcher blow Tridents away

Sat, Jul 4, '15

 

Caribbean Premier League

Seventies from Kevin Pietersen and Andre Fletcher led St Lucia Zouks to a comfortable 30-run victory against Barbados Tridents in Basseterre. The pair added 138 for the second wicket - the highest partnership so far in this season of the CPL - in just 75 balls.
Zouks got off to a poor start, losing Johnson Charles in the second over, but then Pietersen and Fletcher took over. Tridents couldn't stop the runs from flowing, primarily off the bat of Pietersen - he struck three fours in the third over, and took to Rayad Emrit as well, smashing him for two sixes and a four. Pietersen found deep midwicket in the 14th over, and the boundaries dried up for a while, but another late flurry took Zouks to 202 for 5 - the highest total of this CPL.
