Terrible’ pitches behind poor Windies showing – Sir Curtly

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) – Fast bowling legend, Sir Curtly Ambrose, has blasted Caribbean pitches as “terrible” and believes they were behind the regional side’s poor showing on the recent tour of New Zealand.The Antiguan said the region needed to resort to the type of pitches which produced the outstanding players of the past and propelled West Indies to the pinnacle of world cricket.“We need to get back to the days when we were the best team in the world where we had good cricket pitches, where there is a little bit in it for the fast-bowlers, a bit for the spinners and if you’re a good enough batsman, you can score runs,” Sir Curtly told Guardian Media here.“The pitches in the Caribbean are terrible and that’s why when we go overseas and the pitches are bouncing, the players are all at sea. We need to get back quick, bouncy pitches in the Caribbean. It will make better players and fast-bowlers.”Windies batsmen struggled against the short ball on the bouncy pitches in New Zealand and failed to win a single match in the series.They were whitewashed in the two-match Test series and the subsequent three-match one-day series, before losing two of the three Twenty20s. The second match was washed out.“I didn’t watch much of it (tour). It is too painful to watch,” said Sir Curtly, who served as West Indies bowling coach until being replaced 19 months ago.“It’s been a disastrous tour and nothing really went well. I’m just hoping that the players and the coaching staff can go back to the drawing board, do some soul-searching and figure out a way to start winning.”He added: “It is not so much about coaching, in my opinion, because the guys have got the skills. We just need the coaching staff to instil certain discipline, and passion and pride and commitment in order to get results.”Sir Curtly grabbed 405 wickets in 98 Tests before quitting international cricket 18 years ago.last_img read more

Arsenal pitch markings painted blue to combat snow

first_img0Shares0000Feeling blue — Arsenal’s ground staff take all measures to combat the snow in London © IKIMAGES/AFP / Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 1 – Arsenal painted their pitch markings blue in a bid to combat the snow gripping London ahead of Manchester City’s visit to the Emirates Stadium on Thursday.With heavy snow coating the English capital in the 24 hours before the clash with the Premier League leaders, Arsenal took the decision to change the pitch markings from their usual white to blue. The move is to help the match officials and players pick out the lines in case there is further significant snowfall during the game.Tottenham initially did the same at Wembley ahead of their FA Cup fifth-round replay victory against Rochdale on Wednesday, but the lines had to be repainted a lighter colour so the video assistant referee system would work.Heavy snow fell during Tottenham’s 6-1 win with ground staff having to sweep along the lines during breaks in play.City are 13 points clear of second-placed Manchester United, while sixth-placed Arsenal are 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham in the race to qualify for the Champions League.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
