first_img MOBILE, Ala. – After winning the ITA/Wilson Regional championship two weeks ago, Suzana Cavalcante (Jr. / Sao Paulo, Brazil) participated at the 2007 ITA Small College National Championships in Mobile, Ala., and reached the semifinals in singles, before bowing out to the eventual National Champion in a three set match. Cavalcante also teamed up with Paola Arevalo (Sr. / Cali, Colombia) to earn a fifth place finish in doubles. In the national singles championships, Cavalcante reached the semifinals by defeating Northwood University’s Darina Berkova 6-2, 0-6, 6-1. In the semifinal match, Cavalcante faced BYU-Hawaii’s number one player, Elwen Li. In that semifinal match, Cavalcante had a great chance at the win, when she had a one-set lead and was up a break at 4-2 in the second set. However, the very consistent Li came back in the match and won in three sets, 3-6, 6-4, 6-2. Cavalcante then played for the third place position against the University of California in Pennsylvania’s top player, Helena Van Eysendeyk. Cavalcante played very well and cruised to a 6-1, 6-3 win to earn the singles third position at the national level. In doubles, Cavalcante partnered up with Arevalo and had a tough quarterfinal match. The West Florida duo faced the Abilene Christian team of Irene Squillaci and Aina Rafolomanantsiatosika, and came up just short by losing 7-6, 6-2. Cavalcante and Arevalo moved to the consolation draw and beat the Emporia State team of Natalie Villaflor and Marcela Bayon 6-1, 6-4, and the Northwood team of Ashley Neumann and Julia Goncalves 6-2, 6-1, to earn doubles fifth position at the national level.

Ishant Sharma has scalped 10 wickets in 11 games he played this season. Delhi Capitals currently occupies second spot in the points table. Delhi Capitals upstaged Rajasthan Royals in last league game. New Delhi: The Delhi Capitals (DC) have had a great Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019, and one has to say, that this has come after a long time for this franchise. The team, captained by Shreyas Iyer, is placed second on the points table and has already booked itself a berth in the playoffs after their victory against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi. In their last league game, Delhi Capitals got better off Rajasthan Royals to upstage them by five wickets.Quite expectantly, Mohammad Kaif, the DC’s assistant coach, was happy and he talked about how the management worked towards forming the team.“We have identified a core group of players who are going to win us matches and backing them to the hilt. For the coaching staff, one or two failures don’t change the equation as far as the players are concerned. That’s the standout factor for Delhi Capitals this season. We’ve decided that we aren’t going to make many changes this year,” Kaif was quoted as saying in The Times of India (TOI). Apart from Pant and Mishra, Ishant Sharma was the other player, who made a significant impact in the game. The Delhi Capitals spearhead got the first blood and dismissed Ajinkya Rahane. He continued to bowl in the right areas and got rid of Liam Livingstone and Mahipal Lomror.Prior to this IPL, Ishant didn’t have the greatest of careers in the IPL. However, as per Kaif, it was his form in the Test series against England, South Africa and Australia that compelled the Capitals’ management to go for the 30-year-old lanky speedster.“Ishant is a big factor in our success this year. His IPL career has been full of ups and downs. But his recent form in Test matches in Australia, South Africa and England was tremendous. That’s why we were sure that we wanted Ishant in our team,” Kaif, also a former Indian cricketer added. highlightslast_img read more

first_img… Berbice thrash U-15s at Everest groundNATIONAL Youth player Mavindra Dindyal batted Demerara to the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB)/RUBiS Inter-county U-17 title, following a competitive final round match against Essequibo at the GCC ground, Bourda yesterday.Demerara who entered the final round with 18.5 points, 10.1 more than the number 2-placed Berbice, posted 168 in 41.2 overs, batting first and had a mixed performance with Dindyal following up his MVP performance in the last match, with a well-constructed 40 off 45 with 4 fours and a six.The Windies youth batsman was the lone batting star for his team, as a few others managed to chip in with bits-and-pieces contributions as spinner Ryan Atkinson returned 3-33 with skipper Aryan Persaud also grabbed 3 wickets.The combined efforts of Persaud and Atkinson ensured that the Demerara batsmen, apart from stylish Dindyal, who is in a class of his own; never got off to the required start.Cashing in on a gettable total was never that easy for Essequibo, who were mowed down for 134 runs in 45.5 overs, after struggling all innings. Ronaldo Scouten, who did well with the ball in the last round, was the primary scorer for his team with a brisk 34 0ff 30 balls with four massive sixes.No other batsman managed to reach 20 before or after Scouten launched his brutal onslaught in the middle overs. With a low target to defend and a dismal outing by their opponents, Demerara, thanks mainly to Rudranauth Kissoon’s guile (4-25), helped keep his team in the hunt.The second match at the Everest ground had a bit of action also, as Berbice surged to an 8-wicket win over their opponents the Select U-15. The young side were kept to 97 after battling for 40.3 overs, with Nicholas Shoepersaud the top-scorer with 27.Honours went to all-rounder Leon Cecil, who spun his way to magical figures of 6-14 from 9.3 overs while junior national all-rounder Johnathan Rampersaud chipped in with 3-29 from 10 overs.Berbice openers Mahendra Gopilal stroked 54 off 53 deliveries with 8 fours to set the tone while Hemendra Gordyal struck an unbeaten 30 to see his team over the ropes with ease; ending on 98-2 from 21.4 overs.
