Ramdin, Pollard axed from Windies’ ODI team

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC):Wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin’s 12-year international career was dangling by a thread after he and all-rounder Kieron Pollard were axed from the one-day international (ODI) squad for next month’s Tri-Nations Series in Zimbabwe.Neither Trinidadian was named in the 15-man squad announced yesterday by the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) for the tour which runs from November 12-27 and also features Sri Lanka.Both players have paid the price for poor form during the 3-0 drubbing by Pakistan in the recent three-match ODI series in the United Arab Emirates.Pollard’s form was perhaps the most glaring, as the right-hander managed just 42 runs from three innings at an average of 14 and produced precious little with the ball.More striking, however, was Pollard’s lacklustre approach with the bat, which prompted Pakistani bowling legend Waqar Younis to call for his dropping ahead of the final ODI.Pollard was only recalled to the West Indies ODI squad for last June’s Tri-Nations Series in the Caribbean – involving Australia and South Africa – following a near two-year period of exile.UNBEATEN HALF-CENTURYHe marked his return with a match-winning unbeaten half-century against South Africa in Guyana, en route to averaging 41 in the series as West Indies reached the final.The 31-year-old Ramdin, meanwhile, may feel hard done by especially after scores of 37 and 34 in the last two ODIs against Pakistan.While he managed just 79 runs in the series, only Marlon Samuels (116), Darren Bravo (90) and Kraigg Brathwaite (85) scored more, in what was a poor showing overall by the Windies batsmen.During the Tri-Nations Series in June, Ramdin scored nearly 200 runs, including a scintillating 91 against Australia in Bridgetown and 40 against the same side a few days later in a losing effort in the final.Ramdin’s sacking from the ODI side comes four months after he was also dropped from the Test squad and just over a year after he was removed as Test captain and it leaves his international career at the crossroads.He is not currently a member of the Twenty20 set-up.SQUAD: Jason Holder (captain), Sulieman Benn, Carlos Brathwaite, Kraigg Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Jonathan Carter, Johnson Charles, Shannon Gabriel, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Sunil Narine, Ashley Nurse, Rovman Powell, Marlon Samuels.last_img read more

The Public Theatre in Civic Square

first_imgInspired by classical Greek theatre, the pop-up open-air theatre will be presenting work of special significance to the Greek and wider Australian community. One of the events you’ll have the chance to enjoy is Sappho, presented in nine fragments. Written by Jane Montgomery Griffiths, the one-woman play, performed by Mary Helen Sassman, is a homage to Sappho, the ancient Greek love poet whose work has echoed through the centuries. The preview will take place on Tuesday 17 November, with the season continuing over four nights. Cost of admission is $28 for the preview, and $38 thereafter. Another event not to be misses is a special oration by Dr Efrosini Deligianni of the University of New South Wales and local performer Jim Adamik. Entitled Athenian Democracy: From Solon To Tsipras, the pair will deliver selections of the most powerful and significant speeches from Greek democracy, in English and in their original language, either Ancient or Modern Greek. Cost of admission is $10.
