West Indies used just three bowlers – Kemar Roach, left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn, and their captain Darren Sammy – and they hardly broke a sweat, as Bangladesh were chortled for the fourth lowest total in World Cup history of 58 in 18.5 overs in the Group-B match to stun a vocal crowd into silence at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium.Benn was the most successful of the three West Indies bowlers with four wickets for 18 runs from 5.5 overs, but Roach with three for 19 from six overs, which earned him the Man-of-the-Match award, and Sammy with three for 21 from seven overs were equally devastating. Chris Gayle, defying illness, then coolly anchored the visitors to one of their most emphatic victories in ODIs, with 226 balls remaining. The result meant that West Indies moved into second place with four points. It’s the same number as South Africa, and one more than India and England – and all three have a match in hand.Scores:BANGLADESH 58 off 18.5 overs (Junaid Siddique 25; Sulieman Benn 4-18, Kemar Roach 3-19, Darren Sammy 3-21) WEST INDIES 59 for one off 12.2 overs (Chris Gayle 37 not out)Source: CANA NEWScenter_img Sharing is caring!

Palace see off Foxes

first_imgLeicester were given a reality check at Selhurst Park as Crystal Palace made sure a memorable week for the Foxes ended in defeat. Having come from two goals down to beat Manchester United 5-3 last weekend, Leicester boss Nigel Pearson conceded pre-match that he now had to stop people getting over-excited with his side’s impressive start to life in the Barclays Premier League. But there was little to send the travelling contingent back to the East Midlands feeling giddy as the bite of top-flight football saw the visitors punished for a rare off-day, losing 2-0. James McArthur forced a corner after collecting a Campbell knockdown and curling in an effort, with Joe Ledley’s header from the resulting set-piece hacked off the line by Esteban Cambiasso. Schemiechel was on hand to push away an arrowing strike from Puncheon moments later as Leicester were beginning to get pegged back. Referee Keith Stroud was not endearing himself to the home fans after awarding a number of free-kicks to Leicester but he made the right decision to wave away claims for a Palace penalty as Yannick Bolasie went down under pressure from Ritchie de Laet. That proved to be the last action of note in a 45 minutes that will not live long in the memory – especially as the game burst to life at the start of the second-half. Nugent came agonisingly close to breaking the deadlock early after the restart but his shot came off the legs of Joel Ward and behind for a corner. Leonardo Ulloa had been unusally quiet but he came close with a header from Cambiasso’s near-post cross, with fellow Argentinian Speroni doing just enough to prevent him scoring a sixth of the campaign. Palace also started the second half brighter and were ahead moments later as Puncheon’s deep corner was headed towards goal by Scott Dann, with Campbell scrambling it past Schemiechel from close range. The Foxes were left bewildered from the very next Puncheon set-piece as Palace skipper Jedinak this time powered home a free-kick from the left-hand side of the box to double the hosts’ advantage. Pearson’s side prospered in catching United’s defence short on the counter-attack but Vardy, the man of the match against the Red Devils, was guilty of losing possession when a ball to Nugent would have set the one-time England international through on goal. Having fallen behind, Pearson responded by introducing Danny Simpson, Riyad Mahrez and Matty James from the bench, while Marouane Chamakh made his comeback from a hamstring injury for the hosts. Ulloa saw a late effort bravely blocked by Damien Delaney but overall t he alterations did not bring about a change in fortunes for Leicester, who suffered just their second league defeat of the season and fall behind Palace in the table as a result. For Palace boss Neil Warnock, this was a second win in six days as goals from Fraizer Campbell and Mile Jedinak settled an encounter which inherently lacked the quality both sides showed in causing upsets last Sunday. Leicester capitalised on some wayward defending to seal their headline-making win over United last weekend but today they found themselves wanting at the back. Following a timid first half which was played as though both sides were set up not to lose, Palace struck twice in three minutes shortly after the interval. The Eagles have now taken eight points from Warnock’s four league games in charge as the 65-year-old recalled all 11 players who had started the 3-2 win at Everton. Leicester, too, were unchanged but their feet were brought firmly back to the ground in south London as they failed to reach the heights of recent weeks. James Vardy, the catalyst for Leicester’s heroic comeback, had the game’s first chance but could not beat Julian Speroni, who did well to keep out a driven effort. Campbell also passed up a good opportunity to open the scoring but headed Jason Puncheon’s free-kick straight at Kasper Schemiechel in the Foxes’ goal. Palace were becoming an ever-increasing attacking threat. Press Associationlast_img read more
