first_img POSITIVE MANNER Head coach Theodore ‘Tappa’ Whitmore was left satisfied with Jamaica’s all-important win over Suriname in their Caribbean Football Union qualifier last night in front of less than 1,000 fans inside the National Stadium. Playing with ten men after young defender Damion Lowe – son of former Reggae Boyz player Onandi Lowe was sent off after a silly challenge, the Jamaicans managed to maintain the lead they had earlier enjoyed through Corey Burke’s first-half goal, to book their place in next year’s Caribbean Cup and CONCACAF Gold Cup tournaments. “We got a good result. We won and that is what we wanted to do. After the red card, we played two lines of four (players) and one upfront and it worked out for us, so I am pleased,” Whitmore told The Gleaner after the final whistle. Burke scored the game’s only goal 11 minutes into the match, but with two minutes to go before the half-time break, the hosts were left a man short after Lowe – like his father had a few times in his career – was shown the red card, to set up what promised to be an anxious second half for the locals. It was, in fact, Lowe who got the first chance for the Jamaicans, who started in a positive manner, but his header went agonisingly wide after six minutes of play. Eleven minutes into the game, Michael Binns’ raking pass found Dino Williams down the left side. Williams then beat his marker before setting up Burke, who hardly could have missed from seven yards out, sending the small set of loyalists inside the National Stadium in celebration. Burke should have made it 2-0 a minute later, but with the Suriname goalkeeper Cladel Kohmnor at his mercy, he chose to pass to Williams as the chance went begging. The hosts were in total control until Lowe needlessly stepped on an opponent who was on the ground and as expected, was shown a straight red card by the official. After the break, the visitors increased their intensity in attack and looked dangerous at times with Jamaica spending most of the first 20 minutes of the period in their defensive third. Nonetheless, the Jamaicans were never really threatened and, in the 65th minute, Binns nearly added to their lead but saw his shot rebounding off the post. Two minutes later, Rosario Harriot had to clear off the line after goalkeeper Andre Blake left his line and the ball rebounded off the Suriname attacker Roxey Fer. Soon after, Blake had to produce a spectacular diving save to deny Stefano Russell, who unleashed a wicked right-footed effort from inside the penalty box, which sent the Jamaican captain sprawling to his left to make the stop. There was precious little else to worry the Jamaicans who gave away little more and held on for the win.last_img read more

first_img Needing 19 runs from the final over and with a world title at stake, the big Barbadian was left with little to do but go for it. But knowing he had to go for it was easy, actually getting it done is what sets that performance apart. It was top-quality execution of the highest order, amid all the intangible pressure moments that come with playing in a big final and doing it from a position where the margin for error was next to none. Cricket, like all other team sport, is an interdependent activity where one facet of the team depends equally on other aspects of the team in order for the team to function effectively. There is absolutely no doubt that it was Samuels’s innings that set up the victory, but it was Brathwaite’s innings that won the game. The Barbadian could easily have been awarded the Man of the Match for that final. He took three wickets for 23 runs from his four overs when the West Indies bowled, before his 34 runs from 10 in the successful run chase. That all-round performance was at least equally deserving of the Man of the Match award. There was, however, not much room in those triumphant moments for complaints about Samuels being awarded the Man of the Match When all is said and done, though, those four sixes to end the match, and win the title, will represent the most lasting memories for everyone who witnessed that game. In another 20 or 30 years when discussions about great cricketing moments take place, Carlos Brathwaite’s super spectacular SIX, SIX, SIX, SIX will be right up there with any other moments on offer, and will probably top the list. The decision by the International Cricket Council to award Carlos Brathwaite’s swashbuckling match-winning innings of 34 runs from 10 deliveries, inclusive of four consecutive sixes to end the grand finale in spectacular triumph for the West Indies, as the 2016 Twenty20 Performance of the Year, has stirred up a spritely pre-Christmas debate. The moot point being, did Brathwaite’s innings constitute a better performance than Marlon Samuel’s crucial 85 from 66 deliveries? A most timely innings that basically held the then-faltering West Indies batting together, and effectively put Brathwaite in the position to execute his much-heralded heroics. One school of thought is that Samuels’ innings was better, based on the circumstances which dictated a technical repair job, that required great reconciliation between continuing to score at a healthy rate, while holding the innings together; a great balancing act between defence and attack in the most high-pressure circumstances. The Jamaican batting stylist literally set the stage for the victory, meaning his innings was better and more impactful on the result and was, therefore, a better performance. It’s one of those delicate exercises in contextualising and valuing individual performances comparatively in a team sport. But my nod goes unequivocally to Brathwaithe’s innings. What Marlon Samuels did was what any high-quality top-order batsman is expected to do in those circumstances. Marlon himself played a very similar title-winning innings in the 2012 World Twenty20 final against Sri Lanka. The fact of the matter is that that type of innings, as played by Samuels, will more than likely be played many more times in the future. What Carlos Brathwaite did was so unique that it quite likely will never be done again. TOP-QUALITY EXECUTIONlast_img read more
