AFTER a defiant effort from Akeem Saunders, who stroked his maiden first class century, the Leeward Islands Hurricanes batting crumbled for a second time in three days to hand the Guyana Jaguars a ten-wicket win last evening in the seventh round Cricket West Indies (CWI) Professional Cricket League (PCL) Four-day encounter.Trailing by 268 on first innings, the tourists were asked to follow on by the Guyana Jaguars, and were bowled out for the identical deficit, leaving the Jaguars with just one run for victory.Akeem Saunders acknowledges his teammates after reaching his hundred.Saunders had anchored the middle-order, putting on 91 for the fourth wicket with Shane Burton (53) and 76 for the fifth with Jahmar Hamilton (23), but when he was dismissed, the visitors’ effort unraveled and the second collapse of the match continued with increasing speed. From 127-4, the visitors lost 6-141.It was a total bowling effort from the Jaguars, with Keemo Paul claiming 3-38, Romario Shepherd (2-33), Gudakesh Motie (2-79), Veerasammy Permaul (2-77) and Sherefane Rutherford (1-18), being the successful bowlers.The tourists were made to follow-on after being dismissed for just 149 in reply to the Jaguars’ first innings 417.Resuming at 114-9, 304 behind the Jaguars first innings total 417, the Hurricanes overnight batsmen Jeremiah Louis and Mervin Matthew put together a last pair stand of 35 runs before left-arm spinner Motie had Matthew caught at the wicket for 16.With 268 runs ahead, Leon Johnson rightly enforced the follow on and pacers Paul and Shepherd provided instant results with their pace, bounce and movement, claiming the wickets of both openers Montcin Hodge (13) and Chesney Hughes (8), at 26-2.Paul had Hughes edging one to Anthony Bramble on a delivery which had some extra bounce while Hodge was trapped leg before wicket.Soon after Motie pegged the tourists further back with the wicket of Devon Thomas; Motie benefiting from a fine Johnson catch at first slip.But Burton and Saunders then allied for a counter-attacking 64-run unbroken partnership for the fourth wicket until the interval, at 100-3.Upon resumption, the left-handed Burton went pass his fifty but departed soon after, caught at the wicket off Rurtherford.At the other end, Saunders brought up his fifty in company with Hamilton, and the pair then continued to frustrate the hosts until a power outage sent the players off the field.When play finally resumed some 40 minutes after, Permaul put down Saunders when the right-hander was on 87, but the pair added 76 runs for the fifth-wicket before Permaul trapped Hamilton plumb in front for 23.The 23-year-old Saunders then registered his hundred off 171 balls, but soon after he was dismissed, edging Motie behind, at 205-6. His innings lasted for 173 balls, inclusive of 12 fours and a six.Permaul then bowled Rakheem Cornwall (9) while Paul and Shepherd, who both returned for respective new-ball spells removed Terance Warde (29), Gavin Tonge (1) and Jerimiah Louis (16).Tagenarine Chanderpaul then ensured the victory with a boundary. Anthony Bramble was named man-of-the-match for his unbeaten 196.The tournament will break for the holiday season and will resume on January 4, 2018.GUYANA JAGUARS FIRST INNINGS 417Leeward Islands Hurricanes 1st innings (Overnight 114-9)M.

Credit: Ryan Mattis ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada – Immigration and labor officials here say the promoters of a show featuring Jamaican singer, Buju Banton, have not yet made any request for an exemption allowing him to enter the island for the May 11 show.“Night of Love”Banton, whose real name is Mark Anthony Myrie, will headline the “Night of Love” carded for May 11 here as part of a tour of several Caribbean countries.Earlier this week, the Trinidad and Tobago government announced an exemption for the Jamaican singer because the country’s Immigration Act prohibits “persons who have been convicted of or admit to having committed any crime, which if committed in Trinidad and Tobago would be punishable with imprisonment for one or more years”.The legislation also allows for the Minister of National Security to issue a written permit to allow any person to enter the island or to remain therein. National Security Minister Stuart Young gave the assurance that once the promoters request the necessary exemption, he was prepared to grant an exemption.Grenada’s laws similar to TT’sGrenada’s Immigration law also has similar provisions, but the final directive will be at the discretion of the Immigration Minister after an application is made for a work permit in the Ministry of Labor.Grenada’s Minister for Immigration is Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell.When asked if his company was aware of the law, Ian St Bernard of Sunshine Promotions replied “I am not a lawyer, I don’t know anything about that, I have my work permit, call the Attorney General and ask them about that”.Immigration officials have explained that as a Caribbean Community (CARICOM) national, there is provision for all CARICOM nationals to enter the island, however, the Minister of Immigration can approve enter and denial. “It is always at the pleasure of a receiving state that a person is allowed into a country so in the case of Buju, who served time in prison and did not received a pardon, an immigration officer without receiving an exempt instruction will have to comply with the law,” one Immigration official said.An official from the Ministry of Labor explained that despite the provision for free travel within CARICOM entry to an island is still guided by the Immigration Act.In 2011 Buju Banton was sentenced to 10 years in prison after he was convicted of conspiracy to possess cocaine with the intent to distribute. He was released in December 2019 from a USA federal prison after serving seven years behind bars.

If you’re starting to think the Lakers would be better off going topless after this consensual arrangement, at least to avoid more ridicule from the local sports-talk landscape, that leads us to the next problem.Type in pretty much the worst imaginable adult-related bedroom gadgetry you’ve ever heard of on the site’s search engine, and what comes up is stuff more obscene than a $64 million contract once given to Timofey Mozgov. One-size-fits-all championship rings, for example, available for all sorts of body parts.It’s obvious the Lakers desperately need this kind of extra cash channel to counteract any more of the league-imposed fines that come from loose-lipped tampering.But our guess is if Jeanie Buss ever decides to go onto the flea-market site that really does offer stuff like $2 dentures, $10 horny goat weed herbal tea or a $39 electronic device that ignites a 12-cue professional looking light-up-the-sky fireworks show for your backyard, without any of the necessary permits or safety devices – surely, all quality items — she might first order something from the cease-and-desist department once she sees all the other Lakers-branded counterfeit-looking items that would seem to undercut the team’s own NBA vendors.Otherwise, what’s the promo code again for that $24 Kobe Bryant NBA Robojam Gyro Helicopter with the twin propellers coming out his head and likely to catch fire once the batteries are loaded into it?== When do the market-delayed, marked-down Big Baller shoes start showing up on Wish.com so the common-folk have a legitimate shot at rejecting them?== One tip for those about to follow the Sparks’ return to the WNBA Finals for Sunday’s Game 1 against the Lynx: The Sparks will be the team in the purple or yellow jerseys with the logo for something called “EquiTrust” stitched above their numbers. That’s a well-regarded life insurance company that Magic Johnson Enterprises added to its portfolio in 2015. The Lynx’s jerseys read “Mayo Clinic,” one of the nation’s best hospitals located near the team’s base in St. Paul-Minneapolis. Sellouts? Seems like stuff we could actually use. We trust they could put on a clinic about how to vet out sponsorship deals.== Can the Lakers also generate a cease-and-detest whatever against Derek Fisher to prevent him from further damaging the brand, and the NBA in general, during his recent performance on “Dancing With The Stars”?== If the Lakers and Clippers are trying to wage their own “battle for L.A.” in basketball terms, what possesses them to stage their annual “media day” events on the same day? To splinter attention?== The Clippers need you, and a $175 fee, to prove you still have game. They are accepting applications to open tryouts that could lead to a roster spot on their NBA G League Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario. Cashier check, credit card or debit card only. No cash or personal checks. Just like how Chris Paul once had to prove his worth before giving up on the whole idea?== If the Rams could get NFL approval to go all-mustard-yellow PJs every week, and then face the 49ers about 49 times a season, wouldn’t that be the secret to filling in a few extra empty seats in the Coliseum on a regular basis? Out of all the image-conscious brands existing today to do business with, there’s this one e-commerce site that offers a holistically horrific selection of cut-rate overseas warehouse drek imaginable, at discounted prices so embarrassingly low and a reputation perhaps even lower that it sends up enough red flags that the Better Business Bureau posts hundreds of complaints for everyone’s amazement and amusement.But wait, there’s more.That dream package deal interests you so much, you not only embrace it as a legitimate partner for your professional sports team, but deem it worthy of adding their name on a high-visible patch that’s right next to your iconic logo?Dear Lakers: Be very careful what you Wish.com for.
