AFCON opportunity spurring Sofapaka’s Avire

first_img0Shares0000Sofapaka striker John Avire celebrates his lone goal against Nzoia Sugar in a Kenyan Premier League clash at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machaos on February 7, 2019NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 22 – The thought that improvement in his goal scoring fortunes will earn him a chance to be in Kenya’s team for the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) next June is motivation enough for Sofapaka forward John Avire to keep them banging.Avire joined the 2009 champions at the beginning of the season from Mount Kenya United and has so far scored four goals in 14 appearances and hopes to score more. The 21-year old forward was part of head coach Sebastien Migne’s preliminary 25-man squad that trained last Tuesday and his maiden call up to the national team has spurred in him a desire to earn more.“I believe I can earn a place in the team. If I continue working hard and keep on adding my tally of goals, I will stand an opportunity to be there. If given the chance, I know I will do my best and prove that I deserve it and I am among the best,” the forward told Capital Sport.Avire says having trained with the team for the first time on Tuesday, he has a renewed hunger to ensure he is a consistent figure.Sofapaka forward John Avire training with national football team harambee Stars during a session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies on February 19, 2019.

It is everyone’s dream to play for the national team and for me that is a motivation to continue giving my best,” he said.He added; “ The first session was a challenge at first but after I got used to it I enjoyed it a lot and I am hoping this is a first for many.”Avire famously led Passenga High School to a first ever national school games title in 2014 as a Form Two, scoring the winning goal as they beat Upper Hill High School in the final. He also ended up as the tournament top scorer.After clearing High School in 2016, he signed for Bandari who loaned him out to Kakamega Homeboyz before he was recalled. He joined Mount Kenya midway through last season before following his coach Melis Medo to Sofapaka.Ex Sofapaka FC head coach Melis Medo has a chat with striker John Avire after a training session at the Eastleigh High School on November 16, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluThe striker also hopes to vie for this season’s golden boot and guide Sofapaka to the Kenyan Premier League title, two things he believes are very possible.“We are on a good run at the moment despite last weekend’s loss. I believe if we continue working the way we are with a lot of teamwork and unity, we will achieve that target. We have Homeboyz away this weekend and I am hoping we can bounce back,” noted the speedy striker.0Shares0000(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

‘KITTEN THROWN FROM CAR IN CROLLY’ – CLAIM

first_imgA FARMER has recovered a badly injured kitten from the roadside in Crolly which he believes was chucked from a moving car.Donegal Pet Rescue told donegaldaily.com that the kitten’s rear legs were broken in the incident at the weekend.“The Crolly kitten is now with the Animal Health Centre in Ramelton,” said DPR in a statement. “The kitten has two broken legs and the injuries are consistent with being thrown from a moving vehicle. Heidi the vet there has confirmed this.“She has offered to operate on the poor kitten for 100 euro (normally costs around 300 euro) which is very kind of her. If anyone would like to donate towards the cost, they can do by donating online or directly to the vets.”The spokesman went on: “Helen on the Helpline received a distressing call from a farmer near Crolly, who was out feeding his herd of cattle, when he heard a screech of brakes.“He rushed over and saw a kitten screaming in agony. One of our volunteers rushed out and thought the poor kitten had at least two broken legs and must have been thrown from the car like a piece of rubbish. Helen could hear the kitten screaming when she was on the phone with the farmer!

How Sourav Ganguly stood his ground to take Anil Kumble on Australia tour

first_imgThe national selectors had made up their mind to drop Anil Kumble from the 2003-2004 Australia tour but former India skipper Sourav Ganguly put his foot down and ensured that the legendary spinner make it to the series.”I will give you the example of Anil Kumble, who was probably the biggest match-winner India has ever produced in the last 20-25 years. I remember attending a selection meeting before the tour of Australia in 2003. I was the captain of the side and I knew, selectors were not very keen on having Anil in that tour,” said Ganguly on the sidelines of a promotional event.”As I entered the selection meeting, I could sense the selectors had made up their mind to leave Anil Kumble out. I kept on requesting and insisting that he is such a match winner, he is done so much good for Indian cricket. He must be in Australia and the selectors just didn’t agree,” said Ganguly.Kumble is highest Indian wicket-taker in Tests, having grabbed 619 wickets in 132 matches with his best figures of 10/74 against Pakistan in New Delhi.Kumble, who coached India before the current coach Ravi Shastri, also has 337 ODI wickets in 271 matches.”The selectors wanted to pick a left-hand spinner because Australians don’t play left-hand spin well, and this went on for a good couple of hours. It was getting late and John Wright came up to me and said Saurav let’s finish this and go with what they said and I am sure we will do well,” he said.advertisementGanguly said he told coach John Wright that if Kumble was not picked for that tour, he might not play for India.”I told John that Kumble has been a champion for last 10 years, he is on his way down at the moment, may be because he hasn’t bowled well, but I actually feel it is a temporary thing,” said Ganguly.”I told John if you leave Anil, he may not play for India again. I said I am not going to sign the selection sheet till Anil is in the side. The selectors got fed up with me and said if I don’t play well, if the team does not play well and if Kumble does not play well, I will the first person to to go before anyone goes. I said fine, I am ready to take that risk and we will see what happens,” he added.And after that Kumble was picked for the Australia tour and Ganguly said he came out with flying colours.”Anil had an outstanding series, an outstanding year as well. He went on to pick 80 wickets that year, which was the most by any spinner in a calendar year in history of Test cricket,” said Ganguly.last_img read more

Since you’re here… England, who had omitted Jos Buttler and Adil Rashid from the side in Southampton, were not quite at their sharpest in the field. Woakes, who ended with four wickets, had a better day but this time David Willey yielded runs at a mildly alarming rate – his 10 overs cost 86 runs.In this side, with Mark Wood and Jofra Archer omitted, the bowlers were of uniform pace and, in the absence of Rashid, there was no mystery from the spinners. Joe Denly was given a solitary over again. Unlike at Cardiff in the T20 international there were no long-hops but there were two full-tosses and Morgan did not trust him to continue. He can bat but it is wishful thinking to believe he can have a significant impact with the ball against the best players in the world. They required one favour from Pakistan. On 21 Roy slapped the first delivery from Hasan Ali gently to mid-off. There Shaheen Afridi dropped the simplest of catches and soon Roy was pummelling the boundaries at will with the crack of the ball meeting bat resounding around the ground. Initially Roy played the most eyecatching shots with straight-driven sixes peppering the spectators but Bairstow advanced just as quickly and one of his sixes over midwicket went even further – over the temporary stand towards a burger bar.Once Roy was caught at cover, trying something extravagant, Bairstow took centre stage, tormenting the left-arm spinners in particular. This was brutal, carefree batting, while Joe Root looked on in quiet admiration as the two Yorkshiremen added 75 together. Both departed before the end but even this was convenient for England since it allowed Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali some much-needed time at the crease. Neither were quite so fluent – and Moeen benefited from two dropped catches – but before long they started to middle the ball. Stokes was run out for 37 after a deflection at the non-striker’s end but Moeen finished with a flurry on yet another day when bowlers had to look forlornly at some ugly figures once they returned to the haven of the dressing room. 1.

Topics While blasting the ball to every corner of this shrunken ground, Roy and Bairstow – in just their 26th innings together at the top of the order – became England’s most productive opening pair in ODI cricket with considerable scope to add many more runs in the next few years. More immediately the analysts of the world will be searching for frailties. On this type of surface – another belter – they can intimidate the best.Bairstow explained afterwards that the secret was playing “strong shots”. He said: “It’s not like we are slogging and playing ramp shots but genuine cricket shots.” He also feels he benefited from his experiences in the IPL. “I loved it there and learned different things from different coaches and players [including his teammate David Warner].” Pakistan had to recover from the loss of two early wickets to Chris Woakes, who found some movement early on when dismissing two obvious dangermen. In the first over Fakhar Zaman, after his heroics at the Ageas Bowl, edged to Root, who juggled before coolly taking possession of the ball at second slip. Then Woakes nipped a ball between the bat and pad of Babar Azam.Thereafter the bat was seldom beaten; Haris Sohail batted smoothly until he was carelessly run out as Tom Curran’s right boot, not renowned for its accuracy in the pre-match football games, kicked the ball into the stumps. Sarfraz Ahmed consolidated for a while along with Imam and Asif Ali once again provided some muscle. The tail wagged eagerly as Pakistan mustered 94 runs from the final 10 overs.

Read more Earlier the England bowlers had suffered as well, mostly at the hands of Imam-ul-Haq. He is the nephew of the great Inzamam and he hit the highest score ever for Pakistan in an ODI against England. It was a polished innings by the 23-year-old left-hander and by modern standards it was not particularly violent. His 151 occupied just 131 balls yet for most of the time he was content to stroke the ball away, missing nothing off his legs.Imam bats in glasses, which is unusual, and they never steamed up. There is still scope in this format for a measured player around whom there can be pyrotechnics from the other batsmen. However it is hard to gauge what a good total is at Bristol (or anywhere else, in fact) with the boundaries reduced, the pitch true and the white ball showing very little inclination to swing. Cricket Pinterest match reports Jonny Bairstow celebrates his century. Photograph: Tom Jenkins/The Guardian Jonny Bairstow England’s greatest opening pair in this format made a mockery of what used to be regarded as a monumental target, as they went two up with two to play of this five-match series.Jonny Bairstow, who finished with 128 from 93 balls, and Jason Roy (76 from 55 balls) added a blistering 159 before they were parted in the 18th over, which meant the rest of the chase was no more than a canter. Needing 359 for victory England knocked off the runs with six wickets and 31 balls to spare. This was the second-highest successful run chase by an England side, the highest having taken place just three months ago against West Indies in Barbados. England’s six-wicket win over Pakistan on Tuesday is their second-highest successful ODI run chase – and the fifth best of all time.
