Intrepid Cricket Cranes falter again

first_imgOmani players celebrate a wicket// Alvin Bagaya.By Alvin BagayaCRICKET. Media houses counted the match as make or break for either team which was outright disrespectful to their two remaining opponents in the tournament. Oman and Uganda still have two games to play after this and the general assumptions was that they will qualify but both technical benches will know you only qualify when your squad is on the finals nomination sheet to the umpire.Uganda won the toss and elected to bat, a decision that may have backfired as they lost out of form opener Arthur Kyobe in the first over for a second ball duck.Hamu Kayondo 20(41) fell to the leg spin of Kawar Ali  but Bilal Khan had already taken care of pinch hitter Muhammad Irfan 15(19).Roger Mukasa 57(68) stroked two fours and one six, making the most of two dropped opportunities to score a much needed half century off a score card that was a sore sight at Kyambogo Cricket Oval.For long, Mukasa has been a source of runs for Uganda but his main support recently, Ukani Shehzad 9(17), was clean bowled by Khawar Ali’s leg spin.There was never any showing late in the order after the usual late order fighter Deus Muhumuza was questionably dropped for the fixture. The team sheet raised many queries among home fans after lead scorer against Singapore was dropped as well. The result will no doubt be an indictment on the coaching staff.The Uganda innings folded in the 47th as Maqsood and Bilal Khan were the chief destroyers on the day.The Oman run chase was led by Jatinder Singh 52(63), stroking a half century, the much feared Ugandan spin attack rendered ineffective in the face of a paltry score to defend. He scored ten fours and one six in his innings.Uganda Captain Davis Karashani remains hopeful that the fate of the Cricket Cranes in the ICC World Cricket League Division III remains in their own hand.“It is still wide open, we still have a chance,” Karashani said.Jatinder Singh 58(71) and Captain Sultan Ahmed 22(44) who were both run out put on 63 for the third wicket and by the time they left the wicket, Oman were home and dry; Nassem Kushi 14*(12) and Ajay Lalcheta 19*(10) knocking off the winning runs in the 27th over; Oman winning comfortably by six wickets.

Dimension Data expands into Angola

first_img3 October 2008Dimension Data has acquired a 51% stake in Angolan IT company Sistemas Redes e Communicaçoes (SRC), enabling the multinational IT solutions and services provider to expand its Middle East and Africa operations.The Middle East and Africa region is key to Dimension Data’s expansion strategy, and the company already has 25 offices in 12 countries. SRC meanwhile, has been providing technology and communications solutions in the Angolan market for the past 12 years.The acquisition also marks the launch of Dimension Data Angola, which will be based in the capital Luanda.According to the Johannesburg-based company, seeking local partners provides them with best practice, expertise and local market knowledge, enabling the company to deliver specialised offerings to their clients.“Dimension Data has an established track record of delivering world-class technology services and solutions that enable Africans to do great things,” said Dimension Data Angola MD Bruno de Carvalho in a company statement this week.“By combining this with SRC’s strong client base and local knowledge and skills, Dimension Data Angola is able to provide more comprehensive services and solutions ideally tailored to the local, Angolan market.”Natural resource wealthDe Carvalho said that the Angolan economy had undergone a period of transformation in recent times, and had emerged as the fastest growing economy in Africa, growth which could be partly attributed to the wealth of its natural resources.With oil being one of the country’s greatest exports, there are many multinational organisations based in Angola, some of which are existing customers of Dimension Data.“Global businesses require globally linked technology solutions and Dimension Data with its network and experience is able to deliver and take advantage of these market opportunities,” said De Carvalho.He believed that the company could use technology solutions to help Angola improve its competitiveness, promote local economic growth, ensure skills development, and encourage investment in initiatives to improve access to technology.“Our vision is to bring social and economic opportunities to the millions of people across Africa and the Middle East that are not yet realising the benefits of technology,” said De Carvalho.SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — July 2, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We are making changes to the forecast this morning as our pattern is looking wetter. Rains moving into Ohio today are as we expected when we last talked this past Friday, but dryness for the rest of the week is out, and scattered showers are in. This make the forecast one that benefits most crop growth and development, as long as it verifies. However, we are seeing some pretty good model agreement on the pattern for the remainder of this week and the weekend. We do not see models diverge until next week. A map of 10 day rain potential is below at right, and discussion of our forecast changes follows.Today we have scattered showers across Ohio, and we see additional showers tomorrow. The days look very similar. Each day we can see a few hundredths to .3″ of rain, with coverage combined over the two days at 75%. On Wednesday, we see sunshine break out over the southern half of Ohio, with no precipitation from I-70 southward. Up north, we see scattered showers developing late in the afternoon and evening, but staying north of I-70. Rain totals will be .25″-.75″ with 60% coverage north of I-70.For Thursday, we have scattered showers sagging south across the state, ending up near I-70 by sunset. These showers will bring a few hundredth to .3″ again to that part of the state with 70% coverage, but we see nothing for Thursday south, and sunshine will mix with clouds there. Friday will be wet statewide, with showers and thunderstorms bringing up to half an inch of rain and 80% coverage.We are dry for the weekend through midday Monday! Sunshine will dominate, and temps will be pleasant. Showers are back for the Monday night through Tuesday and Wednesday period. These showers do not have excessive moisture on any given day, only about a trace to half an inch possible on either of the days, but combined, we will see some good moisture, and coverage at about 70%.  Once again, models have been a bit divergent on solutions for next week, and our forecast is admittedly toward the wetter end of the spectrum. So, if we do see changes evolve over the coming days, we expect our forecast will trend drier, so stay tuned.For the extended period. We will see the showers expand to statewide coverage for Thursday, the 12th, bringing .25”-.75” to 75% of Indiana. Then we go dry for next Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We finish the 11-16 day forecast period with a nice, slow moving frontal complex sagging across the region for the 16th and 17th, allowing for an additional .25”-.75” of moisture with 90% coverage.Temperatures will continue on a bit of a roller coaster. Rains overnight and today will pull temps back to near and slightly above normal levels today and tomorrow. We will be hot again Wednesday, Thursday and Friday morning, on strong south flow and some sunshine in the area. Temps will be well above normal. Then the front that sweeps through Friday brings significantly cooler air in for Friday evening through the weekend. Temps for that period will be below normal. Then we spend most of next week near normal. After the heat of this past weekend, this is also a good forecast outlook on temps.last_img read more

Mithali Raj leads India women to T20I series win against Sri Lanka

first_imgThe Indian women’s team survived a mid-innings collapse to beat Sri Lanka by five wickets in the second Twenty20 International for an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series in Ranchi on Wednesday.After restricting Sri Lanka to 107 for 8 in 20 overs, the Indians endured some anxious moments before coming through in 19 overs.The decision to bat first backfired severely for the Lankans with Ekta Bisht (3 for 22) and Poonam Yadav (3 for 17) combining to rip through the visiting line-up.Dilani Manodara’s 27 was the best that a Lankan batter could manage, followed by skipper Shashikala Siriwardene’s 26-run effort.In reply, India’s in-form captain Mithali Raj was the star performer for the hosts, striking an unbeaten 51 which came off 52 balls and was studded with half a dozen fours.However, she could not find a steady partner in the chase until Anuja Patil joined her at the crease. Patil’s 33-ball 34 came handy as India overhauled the target after some hiccups.Inoka Ranaweera was the top bowler for the Lankans, grabbing three wickets for a mere 10 runs in her four overs.Brief scores: Sri Lanka Women: 107 for 8 in 20 overs (Dilani Manodara 27, Poonam Yadav 3 for 17).India Women: 108 for 5 in 19 overs (Mithali Raj 51 not out, Inoka Ranaweera 3 for 10).last_img read more

20 days agoChelsea boss Lampard happy for Abraham over England recall

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Chelsea boss Lampard happy for Abraham over England recallby Paul Vegas20 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea boss Frank Lampard is delighted for Tammy Abraham over his England recall.Lampard does not want to put too much pressure on the striker’s shoulders by saying he will definitely score goals at international level, but points out the player has shown he can score goals in the Championship and now in the Premier League.He said, “The work has only really begun for him because he is a young player, so I want to see him continue playing in the same vein for Chelsea and scoring goals and then naturally when he goes to the England squad, he has all the attributes to go there and be successful.”But it will be another step for him. I am sure he has the attitude to take that challenge of being a goalscorer for England and there is competition there. He will see there are great strikers in that squad already and it is a good challenge for Tammy.” last_img read more
