WI whitewashed in T20 series against Pakistan

first_imgABU DHABI, UAE (CMC):Pakistan exposed West Indies’ weakness to spin bowling and large outfields by cantering to a comfortable eight-wicket win in their final match, to complete a 3-0 whitewash yesterday.West Indies lost three front line batsmen to the ordinary left-arm spin of Imad Wasim, before stumbling to 103 for five in their 20 overs at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.Shoaib Malik struck an unbeaten 43 to guide his side to victory with 29 balls remaining.Debutant fast bowler Kesrick Williams launched his international career by snatching, in one over, the only two Pakistan wickets to fall.Asked to bat after Pakistan won the toss, West Indies’ innings careened into disarray in the third over when Wasim picked up two wickets in two balls.Johnson Charles gifted his wicket when he attempted a heave over midwicket, but missed and lost his middle and leg stumps.Wasim’s next delivery kept low enough to hit the toe end of Chadwick Walton’s bat before crashing into the stumps.Two overs later, the World champions plunged to 17 for three when Andre Fletcher was run out for nine.Fletcher worked a ball towards square leg and took off without approval from Marlon Samuels, but Rumman Raees’ throw was pounced on by Sarfraz Ahmed, who whipped off the bails.LOOSE SHOTSA couple of partnerships in the middle of the innings attempted to repair the damaged caused primarily by West Indies’ failure to adapt, loose shots and bad running.Samuels and Nicholas Pooran stitched together 37 runs for the sixth wicket until Pooran attempted a shot that would have cleared most grounds, only to be caught by Malik on the deep mid-wicket boundary for 16.Samuels and Kieron Pollard, negotiating spinners that were constantly attacking the stumps – including Wasim who finished with three for 21 – then compiled 37 runs for the sixth wicket.Samuels finished unbeaten on 42 off 59 balls, while Pollard, in conditions not favouring big hitting, ended up not out on 16 off 17 balls without hitting a boundary or clearing the ropes.SCOREBOARDWest Indies inningsJ Charles b Imad Wasim 5ADS Fletcher+ run out (Rumman Raees/+Sarfraz Ahmed) 9CAK Walton b Imad Wasim 0MN Samuels not out 42DJ Bravo b Imad Wasim 11N Pooran c Shoaib Malik bMohammad Nawaz 16KA Pollard not out 16Extras (lb 3, w 1) 4Total (5 wickets; 20 overs) 103To batCR Brathwaite*, SP Narine, JE Taylor, KOK WilliamsFall of wickets 1-12 (Charles, 2.2 ov), 2-12 (Walton, 2.3 ov), 3-17 (Fletcher, 4.4 ov), 4-31 (Bravo, 8.1 ov), 5-66 (Pooran, 12.4 ov)Bowling: Wasim, 4-1-21-3, Tanvir 4-0-22-0, Nawaz 3-0-16-1 (1w), Amir 4-0-20-0, Malik 2-0-11-0, Raees 3-0-10-0.Pakistan inningsSharjeel Khan c +Fletcher b Williams 11Khalid Latif b Williams 21Babar Azam not out 27Shoaib Malik not out 43Extras (lb 4, w 2) 6Total (2 wickets; 15.1 overs) 108Did not bat: Umar Akmal, Sarfraz Ahmed*+, Mohammad Nawaz (3), Imad Wasim, Sohail Tanvir, Mohammad Amir, and Rumman Raees.Fall of wickets 1-36 (Sharjeel Khan, 5.1 ov), 2-40 (Khalid Latif, 5.6 ov)Bowling: Taylor 2-0-19-0,(1w), Williams 4-0-15-2,(1w),DJ Bravo 4-0-31-0,Narine 4-0-21-0,Brathwaite 1.1-0-18-0.Result: Pakistan won by eight wickets.Series: Pakistan won the three-match series 3-0.Man-of-the-Match: Imad Wasim.Toss: Pakistan.Umpires: Ahsan Raza and Shozab Raza; TV- Ahmed Shahab.last_img read more

Boy threatened and robbed elderly woman at knifepoint in bedroom

first_imgA boy who crept into a woman’s bedroom before threatening her at knifepoint and stealing her phone and handbag has been ordered to stay away from anybody with a criminal record. The boy, who is 17 years old, broke into the woman’s home in Letterkenny on July 18th last. He was along with another man who both threatened the elderly woman who was alone in her bedroom.The woman tried to call out to her son but the men told her to “shut her f***ing mouth.”They fled with her handbag and phone and she noticed later that a laptop computer and a key was missing.Later that evening Gardai came across three males acting suspiciously and one of them, the accused, handed over a bank card which later turned out to belong to a son of the woman who was robbed.He was interviewed and eventually admitted to breaking into the woman’s home but would not reveal the name of his accomplice.A victim impact statement was read out in court on behalf of the victim who admitted she was still suffering as a result of the break-in.She said she was still nervous, had trouble sleeping, lies awake in bed in fear and is hoping to be rehoused.“I also suffer from panic attacks because I know the two suspects are still out there,” she said.Garda Joe English told the court that he knew the boy and that he was a good boxer who would chat away to him if he was not drinking.Barrister Peter Nolan said his client was still a child who had suffered from alcohol trouble since he was fourteen.The court was told the boy, who is currently being held in Oberstown Children’s Detention Centre in Lusk, Co Dublin, has a ‘moderate risk of reoffending’ in the next 12 months.The break-in occurred when the boy was already on bail for other offenses.“This was a violation of this woman home, privacy and her person. It was appalling,” said Mr. Nolan.But he added that he appears to have done well in Oberstown House and ask the court to look at this as a way of dealing with the case.“If he’s sent away that will be the end of it and he will be dealing with the ‘Real McCoys’ and he will be back in court in a year’s time,” added Mr. Nolan.The boy himself, who turns 18 early next year, said he wanted to apologise in public to his victim.Judge John Aylmer said “This is a very serious offense of burglary while on bail. If I was dealing with an adult I would be considering a jail sentence of three years.“But because he is a juvenile I must approach it differently and ultimately detention must be the sentence of last resort.”He imposed a detention order of six months but backdated it to the day he went into custody on July 18th and also placed him under the supervision of Probation and Welfare Officer upon in his release for a period of another six months.The court was told that the boy’s dad has a criminal record but Judge Aylmer said he would excuse communication with his father.Boy threatened and robbed elderly woman at knifepoint in bedroom was last modified: December 7th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:burglarycourtdonegalknifeletterkennylast_img read more
