LONDON, (Reuters) – Batting great Brian Lara has said West Indies’ best chance of victory against England is to race out to an early lead and secure the win inside five days. All-rounder Jason Holder is part of the tourists’ impressive bowling attack but questions remain about their batting ahead of the series opener which began in Southampton yesterday.“They have to be able to pounce immediately,” the former West Indies captain told BBC Sport.“England are not beaten very easily at home and are overwhelming favourites. “They have to hit the road running and stamp their authority on England.“I don’t think they can last five days, so they have to take these games in four days. They have to establish a lead and keep it.” The three-test series, to be played in a bio-secure environment and without spectators, marks the resumption of international cricket after the coronavirus shutdown. “It’s going to be a series that’s watched all around the world and everybody is hoping to see a competitive series,” said Lara, whose 400 not out against England remains test cricket’s highest individual score. “It would mean a lot to all West Indians if they could win. “If they play good cricket on the first day of the test series, show they have the mettle to perform against England, that’s the key.”

By Mike McGuire DAVENPORT, Iowa (May 23) – A very long green flag run ended with Scott Hogan in victory lane Friday night at Davenport Speedway. Hogan caught race-long leader Darin Duffy with three circuits left in the 50-lapper and held on to the checkers in the $2,000 to win IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified Madness feature.The green light stayed on for the last 34 laps and the main event had the look of its first repeat winner in Duffy. He started on the pole and led the first 47 laps before the third-starting Hogan charged by coming to the flagstand.“Fifty laps is a long time and there were just two yellows. It got really dicey there for a while,” admitted Hogan, already on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot. “(Doug) Crampton was right there, too, but we got through the lapped traffic OK and then got spread out again.” Duffy was higher up on the oval when Hogan used the middle line to complete the pass for the lead. He’d go on to take the win by a couple car lengths just before catching up with more lapped cars.Duffy, “B” winner Crampton, Richie Gustin and Chris Zogg completed the top five. Forty-three IMCA Modifieds were in the pits Friday at Davenport. Feature results – 1. Scott Hogan; 2. Darin Duffy; 3. Doug Crampton; 4. Richie Gustin; 5. Chris Zogg; 6. Mitch Morris; 7. Dean McGee; 8. Tim Current; 9. Kurt Kile; 10. Ray Cox Jr.; 11. Eric Barnes; 12. Jake Bowman; 13. Kelly Meyer; 14. Dan Klatt; 15. Brian Mullen; 16. Bob Dominacki; 17. Josh Starr; 18. Jason Masengarb; 19. Tony VonDresky; 20. Doug Nigh.Heat winners were Kile, Gustin, Zogg, Bowman and Cox. “B” feature winners were Crampton and Dominacki.

By Warren RappleyeaStaff Writer By Warren Rappleyea Staff Writer Defending champion Simon Wangui of Kenya will head up a field of about 3,000 runners in the five-mile George Sheehan Classic on Aug. 9 in Red Bank. The annual event, which traditionally kicks off to the sounds of strains of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run,” takes participants through downtown Red Bank and through the neighboring towns of Little Silver and Fair Haven. Race Director Phil Hinck stopped short of promising good weather, though he did note that the race weekend should provide plenty of fun for entrants and their families. The Sheehan Classic is the second largest race in New Jersey, second only to the Spring Lake 5, also helmed by Hinck, a fixture on the Shore running scene. Besides Wangui, other top runners include Nephat Kinyanjui, a member of the Kenyan Junior National Team; Moses Mwangi; and Catherine N’Dereba, a two-time Boston Marathon champion. In addition to the main event, another 500-600 people will participate in a variety of other events that begin on Friday evening with the Kids Classic, a variety of short races for children ages 4-13, said Race Director Bob Rosa. In addition to the five-miler, the weekend includes a wheelchair race and a two-mile health and fitness walk. The course for the five-miler remains the same for the seventh straight year. It will start and end on Broad Street after twisting through Fair Haven and Little Silver. It also includes an out-and-back aspect along Harding Road. Just past the four-mile mark, runners face the challenge of Tower Hill, after which it’s downhill and relatively flat to the finish. Runners will again be timed by computer chip, Hinck noted. All runners will be issued a chip that they must wear on their ankle. This will enable each runner to get an accurate time based on the time they actually cross the start and finish lines. Runners must pick up their chips at the race registration tent in Marine Park beginning on Friday from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. or on race morning beginning at 6:30 a.m. Chips will be collected at the finish line. Race organizers will again host a Friday night pasta dinner, which begins at 5:30 p.m. in Marine Park. Tickets are $8 for adults, and children participating in the Kids Classic are admitted free of charge. The Kids Classic will begin at 6 p.m. on Friday. A five-mile wheelchair race will get under way at 8:25 a.m. on Saturday, and the five-mile Classic will begin at 8:30 a.m., with a Health and Fitness Walk following at 8:40 a.m. Other activities include a Runner’s Expo in Marine Park from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. A panel of area athletes will speak and answer questions beginning Friday night at 7:15 p.m. Participants include New York Power soccer player Christie Pearce of Point Pleasant; Harry Nolan, a nationally ranked masters runner from Middletown; and Amanda and Katy Trotter, who both starred at Red Bank Regional High School in soccer, cross country and track. Entries for the five-miler are $25 ($23 before July 31); race day entries are $30. The entry fees include a T-shirt, and all finishers will receive medals. Entries for the fitness walk and Kids Classic are $16. Proceeds from the race will be used to support the Parker Family Health Clinic, which provides walk-in health care coverage for area residents who do not have health insurance. For more information, call (732) 988-7725 or register online at www.sheehanclassic.org. Race results will be posted on the site after 6 p.m. on Saturday. The site also includes a schedule and description of the events, race information, detailed course maps, and hotel information and directions. Registrations are also being accepted at The Running Store in Shrewsbury and Miles Ahead Sports in Manasquan through Aug. 7.
The regional team failed to win a match in their first appearance in 18 years after being swept 3-0 by China, Indonesia and South Korea to finish bottom of Pool B, consigning them to automatic relegation back to Group Two in 2020.Team Captain Gilles De Gouy said the players failed to take their chances against more experienced opposition.”In Group One you play against better players than you – you have just a few opportunities – I should say four or five – during a match and you have two or three strikes in the first two games – so when you have these break points is where you have to take at least one or two, 50 percent of these opportunities,” he said.De Gouy says all four players need to make improvements if they want to be a part of the Pacific Oceania squad in future.Papua New Guinea’s Abigal Tere-Apisah and Samoa’s Steffi Carruthers took their doubles match against China to a deciding third set, while Tere-Apisah also went the distance in her singles rubbers against Indonesia and South Korea.De Gouy said Carruthers was affected by knee problems which restricted her to only playing doubles, while Tere-Apisah did not arrive in Kazakhstan in peak condition following visa issues.”She had to stay two months in PNG so there was no official matches for her – her last official matches was at the end of November, which is way too far…she felt finally well on court regarding the score in an official match on the final day, which is way too far and way too late, so she has definitely to organise herself so she could play more official matches the same month as the Fed Cup,” he said.Papua New Guinea’s Violet Apisah struggled on her Fed Cup debut, losing both singles rubbers in straight sets before twisting her ankle.De Gouy said the teenager, who was replaced by Carol Lee for the final pool match, needs to lift her professionalism if she wants to improve.”It’s quite surprising because she’s played a few times on the Grand Slam Junior (circuit) – she played US Open, Australian Open in the last few years and so different the Fed Cup is. I think she still has to learn a lot about professionalism and taking responsibility and so I think it’s a big learning curve for her in this event because it’s fully different from her previous experience as a player.”Thailand were also relegated and will join Pacific Oceania in Asia/Oceania Group Two next year.Photo: Facebook Caption: Pacific Oceania tennis players Violet Apisah, Abigail Tere-Apisah, Carol Lee, Steffi Carruthers.
