PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) – Leg-spinner Imran Khan’s 20th five-wicket haul in first-class cricket undermined Leeward Islands Hurricanes and put Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in a good position in their eighth round Regional Four-Day match here yesterday.Khan snatched five for 25 as Hurricanes, resuming the second day at Queen’s Park Oval on 36 for three, struggled to 163 all out in their first innings.Left-arm spinner Khary Pierre supported well with two for 26.Akeem Saunders top-scored with 49 and wicketkeeper Jahmar Hamilton got 28, while Mervin Mathew hit an unbeaten 22 down the order.Armed with a lead of 58, Red Force also struggled and were 143 for eight in their second innings at the close – an overall lead of 202 runs heading into day three.Left-handed opener Amir Jangoo struck 38 while captain Denesh Ramdin got 28 but they were the only ones to show any resistance.Sheno Berridge claimed three for 34 while off-spinner Chaim Holder (2-19) and seamer Jeremiah Louis (2-41) picked up a brace of wickets apiece.Red Force had started strongly, however, with Jangoo putting on 52 for the first wicket with Jeremy Solozano who made 10.Jangoo was positive, striking six fours and a six in a cameo 30-ball knock but once he perished, the innings went into decline.Earlier, Saunders had rescued the visitors as he narrowly missed out on a well-deserved half-century.He added a promising 45 for the fourth wicket with Devon Thomas (13) and another 29 for the fifth wicket with Hamilton.Saunders faced 57 deliveries and struck eight fours before he was fifth out as part of a slide which saw the last six wickets fall for 53 runs.Khan snatched four of these wickets – including that of Saunders – to lead the rout.last_img read more

Joey Barton has FA ban for breaching betting rules reduced

first_img English football suspension extended until 30 April  March 19, 2020 StumbleUpon Submit Share Premier League looks to broadcast every behind-closed-door fixture August 28, 2020 Related Articles Upon appeal, the ban of former England international and Premier League footballer, Joey Barton has been reduced by five months.  Barton was punished by The FA for breaching betting and player conduct rules on 1,260 bets on matches between 26 March 2006 and 13 May 2016.  The former Burnley midfielder appealed against the length of the ban, describing it as ‘excessive.’ The appeal board of the FA agreed with Barton and shortened the ban which was due to end on 25 October 2018, but will now end on 1 June 2018.The report by the FA, said the ban now “reflects the overall seriousness of the breaches and also the mitigation including the full extent of Mr Barton’s addiction.”Barton, who was released by Burnley in May was given a one match ban by the Scottish FA in November 2016, whilst playing for Rangers, also for breaching gambling rules. Last April the footballer announced on his personal website, that the length of the FAhas “effectively forced me into an early retirement.”Barton revealed on Twitter that he was also due to play in a charity match for victims of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, however, as it is an FA sanctioned match his ban will inhibit him from playing any part in the game.
