Sunil Ambris and John Campbell stroked lively half-centuries as West Indies A earned a draw against English County Surrey on the final day of their first-class tour match in England on Wednesday.Left to survive two sessions after the hosts declared at lunch with a lead of 361, Windies A safely navigated the afternoon at the Oval cricket ground in London, to end on 194 for three in their second innings.Test batsman Sunil Ambris sent selectors another reminder of his quality with an unbeaten 63 while opener Campbell struck 55.Vishaul Singh chipped in with 26, opener Chandrapaul Hemraj got 23 while wicketkeeper Devon Thomas finished 22 not out.Surrey had earlier added 111 in the first session as they converted their overnight 62 for one into 173 for four declared in their second innings.Ryan Patel, unbeaten on 30 at the start, top-scored with 48 as he extended his second wicket stand with Mark Stoneman (44) to 79.He put on exactly 50 for the third wicket with Will Jacks who made 47.Speedster Odean Smith was the most successful bowler with two for 15, also accounting for Patel to a catch at the wicket.Windies A then made a lively start to their run chase, with Campbell and Hemraj putting on 79 for the first wicket.Campbell struck six fours and a six off 70 balls while fellow left-hander Hemraj counted two fours in a 39-ball innings.Nineteen-year-old off-spinner Amar Virdi got the breakthrough when Campbell drove loosely to cover and Hemraj followed in the next over without addition to the score, lbw to one from seamer Stuart Meaker which kept slightly low.Ambris put on a further 48 with left-hander Vishaul Singh who scored 26 from 46 deliveries, as together they steadied the innings.The right-handed Ambris, already with a hundred on tour, faced 99 balls in just under 2-1/4 hours and counted eight fours and a six.When Vishaul played down the wrong line and lost his off-stump to South African fast bowler Morne Morkel, Ambris found another ally in Thomas to post a further 67 in an unbroken fourth wicket partnership. read more

QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort View comments LATEST STORIES “I think I just tried to make the best basketball play I could at that time. That’s what I just did,” Go, who was found open by Anton Asistio, said after the Blue Eagles’ 76-79 loss to the Green Archers.That play was reminiscent of Ateneo’s playbook in 2006 designed by then Ateneo mentor Norman Black with Macky Escalona and Doug Kramer conspiring in Game 1 of the UAAP Season 69 Finals. The difference, then, was that Kramer made the shot.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutGo hopes to quickly put his costly miss behind him“Coach Tab (Baldwin) has always been preaching to try to play without the emotion, next play mentality. But I think I still have to learn how to take out the emotion in my game,” he admitted. “Veteran players will just shake it off then next game. But I think my emotion overcame and I still held to the past.

You try to think what could I have done, maybe after the game. Yes, it’s nice to review that, but during the course of the game where the next game happens immediately, you can’t allow something to let that hinder you from the way you play and think.”Go added that moments like this should serve as a lesson for him to become a better player.“I’m a young player, but that can’t be the excuse,” he said. “You let emotion overcome you, you don’t think, you just act. That is something that I still have to learn. Those are the things that make great players, because they are able to take the mistakes out of the game, the emotion, the next mistake, the next game. That is how I think I still have to grow as a player.”Go has now his eyes set on the Final Four, where the top-seeded Blue Eagles will take on Far Eastern University on Sunday.“They’re a tough team. Coach Olsen (Racela) knows how we play because a lot of us played for the Philippine team. We have to prepare and that’s what we’re gonna do,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding Stronger peso trims PH debt value to P7.9 trillion MOST READ CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.

About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Southampton goalscorer Long: We won thanks to special effortby Paul Vegas9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveSouthampton goalscorer Shane Long was delighted with victory over Leicester City.Long struck for the 2-1 win, with Saints also surviving Yan Valery’s dismissal.“It’s a tough place to come, and when you go down to ten men it’s going to take a special effort to come away with three points,” Long said.“The manager sets us up well to press teams, and you could see in the first 35 minutes when we had the triggers we went – everyone went together and we caused them a lot of problems.“They found it hard to play against us and ended up kicking the long balls, and we dealt with that quite well.“Once we went down to ten men, the game plan has to change a bit. I had to drop in deep and allow them to have possession at the back.“It was nice we had the 1-0 lead, but we got the second goal and came in at half time with a bit of a cushion.“The talk at half time was all about digging in deep and working hard, and I think everybody out there gave their heart and soul in that performance.“You could see how much the three points meant to us. It was one of those games when you’ve just got to dig deep, but luckily we’ve got the characters in the dressing room who can do that.” read more

Callum gave me that in his display from the start and Christian gave me that in his display coming on.”And in terms of the wingers I have, Willian gave me that, Pedro gives me that so I have good selection problems when people come on and make a difference. That is what we are all about. read more
