Estwick urges huge effort from Windies on key third day

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados, (CMC): Bowling coach Roddy Estwick has called on West Indies to produce a massive fielding effort on Tuesday’s third day to prevent the second Test and the three-match series against Pakistan from slipping away. West Indies were ragged on the second day here Monday, losing their last four wickets for 26 runs to be all out for 312 in their first innings and then letting off opener Ahmed Shehzad three times as Pakistan reached 172 for three at the close at Kensington Oval. “We’ve got to regroup. We didn’t have the best session between lunch and tea. We were a bit better bowling 30 overs for 60-odd runs after tea and getting three wickets which was a decent performance but we were very scrappy between lunch and tea,” Estwick told media following the day’s play. “We will sit down in the morning and we’ll have a discussion and we’ve got to correct it and we’ve got to correct it quickly. We can’t allow Pakistan to get a lead because once Pakistan get a lead going into day three or four, it’s going to be very, very difficult so we’ve got to work really hard. “Also, we’ve got to learn, put it behind us and try and make sure we have a better day.” Shehzad was given a life on three when Vishal Singh grassed a catch at mid-on off fast bowler Shannon Gabriel with the score on five, in the third over of the Pakistan innings in the morning session. He gained another reprieve on 21 when he was adjudged lbw to Gabriel off a no-ball and was let off yet again on 32, this time stumped off an illegal delivery from off-spinner Roston Chase. Shehzad went on to make 70 in a 155-run opening stand with Azhar Ali who ended the day unbeaten on 81. “I think we were very sloppy between lunch and tea and that’s an area we’ve got to improve,” Estwick lamented. “We dropped one or two catches, we got wickets out with a no-ball. That’s a focus we’ve got to try and improve on because you can’t afford on a pitch like this – an unresponsive pitch to our seam bowlers – to make the kind of mistakes that we did between lunch and tea. “We came back nicely between tea and close of play but before tea it was very disheartening to see the performance.” Leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo accounted for Shehzad and veteran Younis Khan (0) to end with two for 53 while Gabriel took a return catch of a leading edge to account for Babar Azam without scoring, as Pakistan lost three wickets for six runs on the space of 23 balls in the final session. But Estwick said every bowler needed to step up on Tuesday if West Indies were to prevent Pakistan taking a stranglehold on the game. “All of the bowlers have got to come to the party, all the team have got to come to the party,” he urged. “We’ve got to be prepared to work hard because as I said, it’s an unresponsive pitch for the pace bowlers but we’ve got to work hard, we’ve got to make sure we stay disciplined, the fielding has to be energised. “It has to be a whole team effort tomorrow, a really big team effort [in order] not to let Pakistan get away from us.”last_img read more

Passing Our Culture and Values to the Next Generation

first_imgWhen the civil war in Liberia ended 13 years ago, it set back the promotion of the country’s culture policy, a mark that has sliced through the fabric of the country’s rich culture, almost breaking it down completely.Yet when peace returned there was still hope for a cultural rebirth. That hope started to fade immediately after government sold Kendeja, Liberia’s cultural center, to millionaire Bob Johnson for a resort.While many well-known cultural practitioners do not believe another cultural renaissance can happen in Liberia, nevertheless four retired members of the now less active Liberia National Culture Troupe still believe that another cultural renaissance is a possibility.Due to their strong belief and hope for a cultural rebirth, these four retired culture professional, who are well-trained in cultural values and norms, have begun training a little over 18 children, some below the age of five, and some adults cultural dance, the importance of diversity and morality among others.“It is nearly 10 years now since the sale of Kendeja, the home of the Liberia National Culture Troupe, and nothing much has been done by government to have a new home, which will help bring about another culture rebirth. “At the school, we teach each child traditional dance steps from all the tribes in Liberia, folklore and traditional songs as well as explaining to him or her to respect diversity and forgo immorality,” says Washington Z.M. Dagbeh Jr., head of the four retired traditional dancers and culture experts. During extra training sessions, the students are taught to make traditional handmade crafts and unique traditional dancing outfits.For now, the trainers are looking at perfecting the children’s dance steps, tuning their physical abilities to do acrobatic dances, and helping them understand the basic rules of respecting tradition and diversity, he said.“This level one runs for roughly four months; thereafter, we kick start level two, which focuses on learning the history of our traditions, clans, towns and families,” Mr. Dagbeh said, adding, “We will be teaching them some basic traditional secrets about life. It will be purely practice; however, some hidden things will not be taught, except to those who can keep secrets.”In the midst of financial constraints, Dagbeh and his team “still manage” with the little they have to continue their efforts breeding a new generation of cultural practitioners.He said that the children practice three times a week; that sometimes the training is extended for additional activities; and that no matter the current financial difficulties they are experiencing, they cannot stop the training.“Sometime it is difficult to work when you have financial problems; however, the team will continue making the necessary sacrifice that is needed to enable them pass down this valuable cultural knowledge to the children. This is the greatest responsibility we have, and it must be fulfilled while we are alive,”he said in a confident tone. Seated at the edge of the open theater, where the children were practicing their various local dialects, Nyeapu Flomo took a deep breath “as a sign of relief for the tremendous work we have done so far.”As she looked at the children practicing, she said to herself “at long last I’m giving back to a new generation the same way my parents did for me.”Ma Flomo, who joined the Liberia National Culture Troupe at a very tender age in 1970s upon her graduation from the Sande Society in Bong County, explained that her current task is to teach the children traditional greetings skills, laws and other moral behaviors, like refraining from sex before marriage. “We have not even gone six months and the children have now mastered all I’m teaching them. They are now becoming agents for cultural values and norms.“For us, it is traditionally unlawful for one to shout among his peers or at them; not to talk about elderly persons. It is also unlawful to stand straight and greet an older person; the best ways is to bow with your head. “It is also unlawful to just see people talking and interfere; so in that case that individual has to wait until the end of the discussion before coming in. It is also unlawful for individuals to pass through people when they are sitting down; and in case the area is the only road, you have to bend down until you cancross. These are some of the many moral values we are installing in them,” said Ma Flomo, 63.Like Dagbeh and Ma Flomo, 23 year-old student Evelyn Cooper said for a cultural rebirth to happen, the older generation has to get more involved, like her mentors are doing, not waiting for government to act first.“At long last, our understanding about culture is growing and I’m grateful for that. Many of us who came here with no knowledge of our culture are now going home with something. Though we are still at level one, everything we do is exciting and it is actually shaping our lives in a more positive way.“The only regret I have now is that I was not taught these cultural values years ago before I had my first child. At first my thought was having a child outside marriage was acceptable, but now I have learned it is not acceptable in our culture,” noted Cooper.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Grief and violence in Pakistan

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Cheema described Mehsud as an “al-Qaida leader” who was also behind the Karachi bomb blast in October against Bhutto that killed more than 140 people. Mehsud is regarded as the commander of pro-Taliban forces in the lawless Pakistani tribal region South Waziristan where al-Qaida fighters are also active. At the funeral, some wept and others chanted “Benazir is alive,” as the plain wood coffin was placed beside the grave of her father in the vast, white marble mausoleum in southern Sindh province near the Bhuttos’ ancestral home. Hundreds of thousands of mourners thronged the mausoleum of Pakistan’s most famous political dynasty in an outpouring of emotion for Benazir Bhutto. The government said al-Qaida and the Taliban were responsible for her death, claiming it intercepted an al-Qaida leader’s message of congratulation for the assassination. But many of Bhutto’s furious supporters blamed President Pervez Musharraf’s government for the shooting and bombing attack on the former prime minister, Musharraf’s most powerful opponent. They rampaged through several cities in violence that left at least 23 dead less than two weeks before crucial elections. “We have the evidence that al-Qaida and Taliban were behind the suicide attack on Benazir Bhutto,” Interior Minister Hamid Nawaz said. Interior Ministry spokesman Javed Iqbal Cheema said that on Friday, the government recorded an “intelligence intercept” in which militant leader Baitullah Mehsud “congratulated his people for carrying out this cowardly act.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
