West Indies look to break losing run

first_imgCaptain Jason Holder is banking on a coin toss to help set up an unlikely change in fortune and close off a wretched tour of the United Arab Emirates when West Indies meet Pakistan in the third and final Test match today. Holder wants to bat first in the three Test series for the first time at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, desperate for a face-saving strategy that could conjure a consolation win on a winless tour thus far. The Caribbean side is seeking to avoid a clean sweep by the rampaging Pakistanis after losing the series and suffering the same fate in the three-match ODI and three-match T20 series earlier. “If we can bat first and perhaps put some runs on the board for a change and see where that takes us. We have been made to play catch up for most of these Test matches. We have done really well in the second innings of each test match,” said Holder. “Winning the toss could be crucial. We have bowled first in both Test matches. Maybe it’s time to change the dynamics a bit and take first knock on a fresh pit,” he continued. West Indies have produced poor performances overall, but bounced back courageously in Dubai and Abu Dhabi to push those matches into the final day although they were unable to press hard enough to secure victory. Outstanding performances from Darren Bravo, Devendra Bishoo, Shannon Gabriel and Jermaine Blackwood have powered their efforts, but wins continue to elude Holder’s men. Barbadian fast bowler Miguel Cummins, who took only one wicket in the first two Tests, is likely to be replaced by promising Leeward Islands pacer Alzarri Joseph. Wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich is likely to return for the final Test after injury concerns. “He is still progressing nicely,” the Windies skipper disclosed. “I think he is a lot better than he was in the beginning of the last test match, so we are still going to give him some time up to tomorrow and make an assessment then.” HUNGRY FOR A TEST WIN West Indies are hungry for a Test win since their last victory was by five wickets over England in Barbados in May last year. Reports from Sharjah suggest that the pitch appears flat and could offer help to the spinners towards the end of the Test. Guyanese leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo could, therefore, prove useful after taking ten wickets in Dubai and would be seeking to extend his heroics to the final Test. “The pitch here is normally pretty good. I think the only question is whether it will hold together or slow down like probably Abu Dhabi pitch did or deteriorate like Dubai pitch,” said Holder in an interview with members of the media after a full training session yesterday. “We played a warm-up game here and guys played two ODIs here as well… so everybody should be familiar with these conditions and we are confident we will execute our plans.” First ball is 1 a.m. Jamaica time.last_img read more

Trojans’ Gibson on the rebound

Spears loses custody to ex

first_imgBy Sandy Cohen THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Britney Spears’ continuing downward spiral took a devastating turn Monday when she was ordered to relinquish custody of her children by a judge who had cited her drug- and-alcohol-fueled lifestyle. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Scott M. Gordon ruled that ex-husband Kevin Federline will take Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, beginning Wednesday “until further order of the court.” The order stemmed from an unspecified oral motion made by Federline’s lawyers and was handled in a closed-door hearing. The judge’s order did not state the reason for the change in custody and he ordered all transcripts of the proceedings sealed. Phone messages left for representatives of Spears and Federline were not returned. Last month, Gordon said Spears engaged in “habitual, frequent and continuous use of controlled substances and alcohol” and ordered her to undergo random drug and alcohol testing twice a week as part of her ongoing custody dispute with Federline. Spears also was previously ordered to meet weekly with a “parenting coach” who was to observe and report back to the court about her parenting skills. Both Spears and Federline must complete the court’s “Parenting Without Conflict” class. Spears, 25, and Federline, 29, were married in October 2004. She filed for divorce last November and it became official in July. The two have joint custody of their sons, but Federline is seeking a greater share. Since Spears became single, her troubles have played out in the tabloids. First she was photographed at Hollywood hotspots partying with Paris Hilton – appearing drunk and out-of-control. Some photos captured the pop star without panties. Then Spears shaved her head, beat a car with an umbrella and ended up spending a month in rehab. An MTV Video Music Awards performance last month meant to herald her comeback was universally panned, with Spears appearing spaced-out and lethargic. The following week, Spears’ management firm dropped her and her divorce lawyer resigned. She then was charged with misdemeanor counts of hit-and-run and driving without a valid license for allegedly crashing into a parked car in August. The driving offenses likely compelled the judge to issue Monday’s orders, said New York divorce lawyer Raoul Felder. “She was driving without a license with a child in the car,” he said. “You can put aside the in and out of rehab, the shaving her head. But this? When a judge went out on a limb for her? There’s no going back.” Though Spears must relinquish physical custody of the children until further ruling, she and Federline still share legal custody. Los Angeles divorce lawyer Connolly Oyler said he’s surprised the children weren’t taken from Spears sooner. Judges typically remove youngsters from households where parents are ordered to undergo drug testing, he said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
