DHAKA, Bangladesh (CMC):The young WestIndies cricketer, Shamar Springer, who broke Bangladeshi hearts with an unbeaten half-century that set up a thrilling, three-wicket victory, says it felt good to beat the hosts in front of thousands of spectators.Springer steadied the young West Indies innings with an unbeaten 62 from 88 balls, which steered them past Bangladesh’s 226 all out, with eight balls to spare in front of thousands of dejected home fans.His match-winning effort, which followed a disciplined bowling performance in which he grabbed two wickets, ensured the Caribbean side will meet the undefeated India Under-19s for the title on Sunday at the same venue.”Right now words can’t really explain how I feel,” said Springer, a lanky all-rounder from Haggatt Hall in the Barbadian parish of St. Michael.”This is a very heart-warming feeling to guide my team to victory. It feels very good and it feels even better to beat them in front of 15,000.”WINNING RUNSSpringer capped his performance by hitting the winning runs, a drive through cover, off Mohammad Saiffudin, for his fifth four, and was named Player of the Match.”I was very satisfied,” said Springer, referring to his bowling figures of two for 36 from ten overs, same as compatriot Chemar Holder.”This was my best performance, in my opinion, with the ball, and it was great to get that performance in at this stage”.It will be the second time a West Indies Under-19 teamwill play in the Final of the tournament, following Denesh Ramdin’s side which lost to Pakistan Under-19s 12 years ago.”They should watch us because we are young andexciting and just hungry for victory,” said Springer, in a comment directed at West Indies fans eager for a favourable outcome in Sunday’s final.”They should also look forward to see my chestroll again”.

The West Kazakhstan Philharmonic Orchestra chose an unusual composer to headline its London performance Friday: Borat’s real-life brother. Erran Baron Cohen, the brother of actor Sacha Baron Cohen, composed the 16-minute piece, “Zere,” which is debuting at St. James’s Church in London. The irony of working with a Kazakh orchestra was not lost on Erran Baron Cohen, a trumpeter who composed the score to his brother’s movie “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.” In the smash comedy, Sacha Baron Cohen portrays a backward Kazakh television journalist. “After I’d got over the initial shock of being rung up by someone from Kazakhstan, I thought it was a great accolade if they liked the music in the film so much that they asked me to write for a symphony orchestra,” said Erran Baron Cohen.
Lille are three points ahead of Lyon, who have a game in hand, and five ahead of Montpellier, who did not play for a second consecutive week, and have played two fewer matches.The French title race is all but over with reigning champions Paris Saint-Germain 10 points clear, but a young Lille side are eyeing a return to the Champions League group stage for the first time since 2012, while Lyon, who squeaked into the last 16 in Europe in midweek, are seeking to ensure they will be back next year.“This match was one of our most dominant performances in the league,” said Lyon coach Bruno Genesio. “Even with superiority, we continued to play simply, to work for each other.”Lyon took the lead in only the sixth minute with a goal by Houssem Aouar, his sixth of the season.Nabil Fekir added the second in the 34th minute. Kenny Tete shrugged off a timid challenge to pull back a low cross which Fekir attacked while Monaco’s Jemerson hesitated.Monaco managed only one shot all game. They played almost the whole second half with 10 men after Aleksandr Golovin raked his studs down the back of Fekir’s calf in the 47th minute and was sent off.– ‘Childish attitudes’ –Ferland Mendy added a deserved third for Lyon just before the hour mark.“The match in Kiev on Wednesday made us realise that we had a strong group,” said Genesio. “And that we had to stop the childish attitudes that we have seen on some matches.”Monaco, the only team in the bottom half of the French league table to play this weekend, meekly wasted a chance to gain ground on their rivals.“We have to look at the first goal we conceded and especially the second goal which summed up this game,” Henry said. “Winning without desire is hard.Lille are now five points clear of third-placed Montpellier in Ligue 1 © AFP / PASCAL GUYOT“We have to try to put this game behind us, we have a big game against Guingamp next week.”Earlier, in-form striker Nicolas Pepe scored what proved to be the winner as 10-man Lille won at Nimes.“What a match, I’m really proud of my players,” said Lille coach Christophe Galtier. “We must not forget that we played for more than an hour and 20 minutes with 10 men.“With the added time, it was a very long and hard match physically.”Portuguese teenager Rafael Leao headed Lille into a fourth-minute lead, but Galtier’s men suffered a setback when former Southampton centre-back Jose Fonte was sent off in the 16th minute.Jonathan Bamba’s deflected effort doubled the advantage shortly before the interval, though, and Pepe appeared to have made the points safe midway through the second half with his 12th goal of the campaign.“After the PSG strikers, Pepe and Bamba are the best,” said Nimes coach Bernard Blaquart.The 10 men finally started to tire late on, but Lille held on for victory despite Nimes goals from Rachid Alioui and Clement Depres.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Aouar and Fekir found the net as Lyon eased past struggling Monaco © AFP / ROMAIN LAFABREGUEPARIS, France, Dec 17 – Lyon dominated struggling Monaco from beginning to end on Sunday to climb back into the Ligue 1 top three and bury Thierry Henry’s side deeper in the relegation zone.Lyon kept pace with Lille, who won 3-2 at Nimes earlier despite playing much of the match with 10 men.
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.And on Friday morning, a replacement driver was attacked with a baseball bat while collecting garbage in Long Beach. He was not seriously injured and declined medical attention. Neither side seems optimistic about an early resolution to the strike, which began Oct. 19 after Teamsters Local 396 rejected Waste Management’s final contract offer. Waste Management began running ads Friday seeking to hire replacement drivers on a permanent basis – an implicit threat to striking workers that they may not find their jobs waiting for them when the strike is over. The walkout affects three yards in Compton, Carson and Sun Valley, and some 225,000 residential customers in Manhattan Beach, Carson, Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills Estates, Long Beach, Inglewood and elsewhere. Residents and officials in the affected cities reported this week that collection service is running about a day behind. Most commercial accounts are being handled on time. At the yard in Carson, strikers have taken to blocking garbage trucks as they leave in the morning and as they return at night. Strike organizers say the traffic backup limits the hours the replacement drivers are able to work. “I make each one sit for a minute-and-a-half before he can come through my line,” said Bill Huff, executive coordinator of Local 396. “I’m knocking out about five hours every day. They keep trying to throw me in jail, but I’m still here.” Waste Management employees have called the Sheriff’s Department several times to complain about obstruction and harassment. But when deputies arrive, the strikers are generally on good behavior, Sgt. Bruce Cantley said. “We don’t have the ability, unless they’re paying for it, to sit there all day long,” Cantley said. As trucks returned to the yard Friday afternoon and evening, a striker playfully taunted the drivers with a bullhorn while security guards kept track of the allotted 90 seconds. The conflict was more serious Friday morning in Long Beach, where a replacement driver reported that he was attacked with a baseball bat. The driver was collecting trash in the 3700 block of Atlantic Avenue at about 6:30 a.m. when the attacker approached and hit him in the head, Sgt. David Marander said. The man also struck the garbage truck and fled. He was not apprehended. Waste Management did not comment on the incident. Jay Phillips, president of Local 396, said “We don’t condone violence of any sort.” Phillips said he was not surprised that Waste Management was seeking to hire permanent replacements but doubted that the tactic would be successful. “This is a perfect example of the threatening, intimidating and heavy-handed tactics they use with their workers,” Phillips said. “That’s one of the reasons they’re on strike. This company treats their workers like a commodity that’s easily replaceable.” Kit Cole, a spokeswoman for Waste Management, said that striking drivers whose jobs were permanently filled would be placed on a list from which the company would hire workers as new jobs become available. Huff said he doubted the tactic would work because the labor market is tight. “They can’t find drivers normally,” he said. “They’re trying to train a bunch of idiots now.” Phillips said the union’s negotiating position is that once an agreement is reached, all striking drivers will be allowed to return to work. But as the drivers’ last paycheck arrived Friday, no negotiations were under way. “I got three people – my son, my daughter and my wife,” said Luis Brise o, 42, who has been a driver for the past 11 years. “We gotta pay all expenses. We gotta pay insurance. We gotta pay car. But everybody disagrees with the contract they’re giving us right now. It’s no good.” email@example.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!
