Pollard smashes six off last ball to hand Kings crucial win

first_imgDUBAI, United Arab Emirates, (CMC) – Kieron Pollard smashed sixes off the last two deliveries of the game to fire Karachi Kings to a dramatic five-wicket win over Lahore Qalanders and keep alive their hopes of a playoff spot in the Pakistan Super League.Chasing 156 for victory at the Dubai International Stadium on Saturday, Kings entered the final over requiring 14 runs for victory with Pollard on strike and the West Indies batsman finally proved his worth in gold for the franchise.He gathered a couple in the deep off the first delivery bowled by seamer Aamer Yamin, managed a single off the next ball but was handed the strike again quickly when Imad Wasim took a single off the third ball.Pollard was kept scoreless off the fourth ball leaving Kings with 10 runs needed from the last two balls but the Trinidadian cleared the ropes at long off with the fifth delivery before depositing the final delivery over square leg to pull off a sensational win.The right-hander finished unbeaten on 45 from a mere 20 deliveries with a four and four sixes while prolific opener Babar Azam top-scored with 49 from 42 balls.Babar and captain Kumar Sangakkara (20) had added 53 for the second wicket to put Kings on course for victory before four wickets tumbled for 23 runs in the space of 24 deliveries.Pollard and Imad Wasim (19 not out) then rescued the innings in an unbroken 55-run, sixth wicket partnership.Pollard’s West Indies counterpart and fellow Trinidadian, Sunil Narine, was brilliant in his four overs of off-spin, taking one for 19.Sent in earlier, Qalanders were carried by an unbeaten 32 from Mohammad Rizwan and 31 from captain and opener Brendon McCullum, while Narine lashed two sixes in a six-ball 19 batting at number five.Kings moved into fourth spot in the standings on six points but a defeat in the remaining preliminary game on Sunday could see them eliminated.In the other game, neither captain Darren Sammy nor Marlon Samuels had much of an impact but Peshawar Zalmi still managed to beat Quetta Gladiators by two wickets with four balls left in their final game, to go top of the table.Sammy suffered the indignity of a first ball ‘duck’ while Samuels scored seven as Zalmi, chasing 129 for victory, slumped to 52 for six in the 10th over.But Shahid Afridi arrived to hit an explosive unbeaten 45 off 23 deliveries to drag Zalmi over the line.last_img read more

He was two shots up on Mackenzie Hughes, who shot a first-round 60 and was playing Friday afternoon.Gordon shot a 30 on his first nine holes, making six birdies and a single bogey on the back nine at TPC River Highlands. He had nine birdies during his round and just missed a few others, including on the fourth hole where his 35-foot birdie putt came to rest on the edge of the cup. June 26, 2020 Patton averaged less than two points a game, appearing in nine games over three seasons for the Timberwolves, Philadelphia and Oklahoma City.COLLEGE FOOTBALL-CIVIL WAROregon, Oregon State drop ‘Civil War’ name for rivalryUNDATED (AP) — Oregon and Oregon State have agreed to drop the name “Civil War” for their rivalry games.

The change also comes amid ongoing protests following the death of George Floyd while in police custody. Denny McCarthy told that he withdrew after feeling sick Thursday night and tested positive for the coronavirus Friday. Bud Cauley, who played with McCarthy Thursday, also withdrew before Friday’s second round. McCarthy became the third PGA Tour player to test positive for the virus since its restart and the second this week, joining Cameron Champ, who withdrew on Tuesday. Nick Watney withdrew just before the second round of last week’s RBC Heritage Championship. Webb Simpson, Graeme McDowell, Brooks Koepka (KEHP’-kuh) and his brother Chase also withdrew from the Travelers after coming into contact with people who had the virus.In other developments related to the coronavirus pandemic:— The NBA and the National Basketball Players Association say 16 players tested positive for coronavirus in the first wave of mandatory tests done in preparation for the restart of the season. Those 16 players were part of a pool of 302 tested on Tuesday. Tests are continuing for all 22 teams that will be participating in the restart at the Disney campus near Orlando, Florida, next month. The league and the union announced today that they have finalized terms of the deal that will allow the league to restart. Oregon State President Ed Ray said the Civil War name “represents a connection to a war fought to perpetuate slavery.”Oregon athletic director Rob Mullins said former Oregon quarterback Dennis Dixon raised the issue of the name. The football series between Oregon and Oregon State has been played 123 times and is the fifth-most contested rivalry in the country. This season’s game is tentatively scheduled for Nov. 28 in Corvallis. The men’s basketball series between the two teams has been contested 354 times.

Players have made varying degrees of escrow payments in recent seasons since a deal was struck with owners to split hockey-related revenue 50/50.— The Davis Cup men’s tennis competition has been canceled this year because of the coronavirus pandemic and will pick up again in 2021.

Ivanisevic attended the exhibition series hosted by the top-ranked Djokovic in Serbia and Croatia. He says: “I would like to inform everyone who has been in contact with me that I tested positive and ask them to take extra good care of themselves and their loved ones.” Ivanisevic won his only Grand Slam title at the All England Club in 2001.— Red Star Belgrade CEO Zvezdan Terzic said Friday he has tested positive for the coronavirus, days after the Serbian soccer champion played matches in front of thousands of fans despite the pandemic. Five Red Star players earlier this week tested positive for COVID-19 in the wake of their title triumph and a semifinal league cup match against rival Partizan.

He is remembered for his resounding victory over American boxing idol Sugar Ray Leonard in Montreal in 1980.— Diamond League track meets in France and the United States have been canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Cavaliers are scheduled to open the season against Georgia on Sept. 7 in Atlanta.— Tennessee’s athletic budget for 2020-21 assumes the Volunteers will have fans in the stands for football season but still includes a $10.1 million cut in overall revenues. University of Tennessee President Randy Boyd says reducing the number of fans further because of the coronavirus pandemic would have a “significant impact” on the budget. But Boyd said Friday that Tennessee is financially prepared to handle any problems. Tennessee projects a drop of 19.4% with $29.8 million in revenue from athletic ticket sales. The Volunteers won their final six games last season under coach Jeremy Pruitt.

Man City Beats Chelsea on Penalties to Win Carabao Cup …

first_imgArrizabalaga refused to come off and Sarri backed down in a rage, before his misery was completed as City won the shootout, with Raheem Sterling scoring the winning penalty.Ilkay Gundogan, Sergio Aguero and Bernardo Silva scored from the spot for City and even though Arrizabalaga saved from Leroy Sane it was to no avail.Jorginho’s spot kick was saved by Ederson and David Luiz hit the post as Chelsea were sunk, despite Cesar Azplicueta, Emerson and Eden Hazard converting their kicks.Manchester City retained the trophy but Arrizabalaga’s insubordination will be the headline story.The scenes inside Chelsea’s dressing room hardly bear thinking about after the chaos of those closing moments at Wembley.Arrizabalaga’s point-blank refusal to be replaced by Caballero led to furious exchanges between Sarri and his technical staff, with the Italian looking at one stage as if he would storm away and leave his Chelsea players to it for the conclusion.He eventually returned but blazing with fury. Antonio Rudiger then restrained Sarri as he appeared set on confronting Arrizabalaga after his one-man rebellion.Of course, the goalkeeper was seriously at fault, showing his manager a complete lack of respect in ignoring his demands.What, however, does this say about Sarri’s authority and rule at Stamford Bridge that he backed down instead of demanding the goalkeeper obey his demands?The sad aspect was that this was a tactically sound and spirited Chelsea display, in sharp contrast to the 6-0 mauling at Manchester City on 10 February.Chelsea grew into the game and consider themselves unfortunate to lose in this manner – but the ramifications of those closing moments will reverberate around Stamford Bridge and could have very serious consequences for both Sarri and his goalkeeper. Manchester City won the Carabao Cup 4-3 in a penalty-shoot out at Wembley yesterday after Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga defied manager Maurizio Sarri’s attempt to substitute him.City claimed the first major trophy in their four-pronged assault on silverware but this stale final, which was goalless after extra-time, will be remembered for an almost unprecedented challenge to Sarri’s authority by Arrizabalaga.The £71m Spanish keeper, Chelsea’s club record signing, had been struggling with cramp in the closing stages of extra-time and Sarri decided to send on substitute Willy Caballero, who saved three penalties in a shootout to help Manchester City win this trophy against Liverpool in 2016.

Afcon 2017: Nigeria fail to qualify after defeat by Egypt

first_imgNigeria have failed to qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations after falling to a 1-0 defeat in Egypt in their Group G match on Tuesday.With just one game remaining and only the group winners to qualify, Nigeria cannot make up their five-point deficit to table-toppers Egypt.Ramadan Sobhy’s 65th-minute winner puts Egypt on the verge of qualification.Egypt face Tanzania in June and will book their place in Gabon with any result better than a 3-0 defeat.Nigeria won the Nations Cup in 2013 but have now suffered back-to-back eliminations in qualifying.They threw everything forward to find an equaliser on Tuesday and keep their hopes alive and came close when West Ham winger Victor Moses crashed a shot against the post in the 84th minute. The match in Alexandria became a virtually all-or-nothing tie for Nigeria after Chad withdrew from the group on Sunday, citing financial difficulties, and all results from their matches were erased.That left only three teams in Group G and in accordance with the rules of the Confederation of African Football only the winner would qualify for the finals.Egypt have seven points with one match to play, against bottom club Tanzania, who have only one point but two games remaining.To have any chance of qualification Tanzania would need to beat Egypt by a better scoreline than the 3-0 defeat they suffered in Egypt last June because head-to-head records would come into effect if the sides finished level on points.Tanzania would still have to beat Nigeria in their final match in September.  –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.
