Superb Roach sends message to Windies selectors

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC):Test pacer Kemar Roach sent a strong signal to regional selectors ahead of the Pakistan series as his four-wicket haul trumped Devon Smith’s 28th first class hundred on the opening day of their seventh round clash in the Regional four-day championship here yesterday.Choosing to bat first at Kensington Oval, Volcanoes were lifted to 283 all out by Smith’s enterprising 103, with Keddy Lesporis getting 59 and Tyrone Theophile, 44.The visitors had cruised to 116 without loss at lunch and then 200 for two in the second session but the innings fell away badly thereafter as they lost their last eight wickets for 93 runs.Roach, who has not played for West Indies in 14 months, led the rout with a brilliant spell of four for 22 from 15 overs, a performance unlikely to go unnoticed with Pakistan arriving in the Caribbean shortly.He was supported by Test left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican with four for 69 while off-spinner Ashley Nurse picked up two for 71.At the close, Pride were 22 without loss, still 271 runs behind their target.FULL CONTROLVolcanoes appeared in full control during the first session, thanks mainly to Smith who combined with Theophile to put on 121 for the first wicket.The left-handed Smith struck 16 fours in an innings spanning 196 balls and just under 4-1/2 hours while Theophile’s knock comprised eight fours off 108 deliveries in 2-1/2 hours.Roach stuck a double blow after lunch, trapping Theophile leg before wicket in the fourth over before removing Taryck Gabriel for a first ball ‘duck’ to a catch at the wicket off the very next delivery.The 35-year-old Smith repaired the innings, however, in a solid 78-run third wicket stand with Lesporis whose eighth first class half-century was an attacking one, including eight fours and two sixes and coming from a mere 62 deliveries.last_img read more

One bag per passenger Not anymore hopes EU

first_imgLong a rule frowned upon by frugal air travellers, Ryanair’s strictly enforced one passenger, one piece of hand luggage policy may soon be a thing of the past.With European parliamentarians eying standardised rules for air travel across the continent, Ryanair may soon be forced to allow passengers with more than one piece of carry-on baggage, specifically those with duty-free purchases, on board without a penalty.Ryanair passengers are currently allowed one item of hand luggage, which must weigh no more than 10 kilograms. Travellers whose carry-on bags require a place in the hold can be slapped with an extra €50 at the gate.According to the Irish Independent, the chair of the European Parliament’s Transport and Tourism Committee, British Labour MEP Brian Simpson, said that while he was aware that cabin baggage rules had to reflect different aircraft types, his concern was that “certain airlines” looked to charge for “everything”.The European Commission will introduce reforms for air passenger rights later in the year, the paper reported.Ryanair spokesman Stephen McNamara said the push to introduce standardised hand baggage rules was being backed by airport retail lobby groups, who according to MEPs had experienced a “marked decrease” in sales.
