Adams champion after split verdict

first_imgNicola Adams repelled the brave challenge of Belfast flyweight Michaela Walsh to claim Commonwealth Games boxing gold in Glasgow. The 31-year-old Olympic champion was simply too classy for Walsh, who will go home with a richly deserved silver medal after a promising week of performances. However, the three ringside judges remarkably did not quite see the fight the same way with one scoring in favour of Walsh as Adams triumphed only via split decision. Press Associationcenter_img Fearless Walsh went into the fight convinced of her ability to cause an upset and started well as she snaked home a right hand in the opening seconds. However, Adams stepped up a gear, landing a left and right combination which wobbled Walsh, and following up with a sharp right hand as she pursued the Northern Ireland fighter around the ring. Adams never let go of her dominance, relying on all her considerable experience to keep Walsh at bay and land shots on the button almost at will. After a tangle sent the pair rolling on the floor early in the third round, Walsh had some success with her left hand, but Adams responded with a good right and resumed command. At the end of a more competitive fourth both fighters raised their arms in triumph, but the reality was that Adams had once again proved herself a class apart . last_img read more

Fired-up TKR battle out-of-sorts Tridents

first_imgHero Caribbean Premier League 2018…Fresh off their win over the Guyana Amazon Warriors, defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) will be seeking another win when they take on the last placed Barbados Tridents in Match 28 at the Queen’s Park Oval.Shai HopeFriday night’s match should be interesting as TKR will be sizing up the under-pressure of Stars who are in last place, having suffered a recent series of losses; setting up a typical top-of-the-table versus bottom-of-the-table clash. TKR shook up the Guyana Amazon Warriors in Wednesday’s game with Colin Munro denting the bowling surging to 90.While TKR’s line-up has been firing throughout the tournament, Chris Lynn has been out of touch and with his replacement Colin Ingram a similar player to Munro, the champs could fancy their star-studded batting order and hope for a change at the top of the order.A strong showing from USA pacer Ali Khan who starred with 3 wickets in the last game along with some collective work from skipper Dwayne Bravo, Australian leggy Fawad Ahmad and others who have been making a difference. Should the Tridents look for some luck, they will need their batters to fire on the right cylinders with their batsmen like Hashim Amla, Shai Hope, Dwayne Smith and others picking up the slack.Steve Smith who was ruled out with an injury was also a huge loss for the Tridents, making their playing combination going forward a bit more mysterious. However, the quality of bowlers the Tridents possess such as their Pakistani pair of Mohammed Irfan and Wahab Riaz will be a handful while Jason Holder will have triple the responsibility playing as an all-rounder and skipper.Colin MunroTKR could look again to Brendon McCullum for another MVP knock after the ex-New Zealand Captain smashed 66 in a low-scoring game versus the Tridents earlier in the tournament, to help TKR win by 4 wickets.With both Bravo brothers in immaculate hitting form, along with the pair of Kiwis, Ramdin’s seniority and a clicking bowling attack; the champs will fancy the chances of adding to their 12 points and remain in number one spot. The Tridents meanwhile, will be keen on upsetting TKR’s current flow; when the two franchises collide from 20:00h at the Queen’s Park Oval. (Clifton Ross)last_img read more
