Villa Park prepared for a play-off

first_img The play-off will only take place if results on Sunday mean the two London clubs are equal on points, goal difference and goals scored. A Premier League statement said: “Should a play-off be necessary the Premier League has made arrangements for a single match to take place at Villa Park on Sunday 26 May 2013. The match will take place early afternoon with a kick-off time to be confirmed should results require the match to go ahead.” The Premier League has announced that a possible third-place play-off between Chelsea and Arsenal will take place at Villa Park on May 26 – a move which could jeopardise the Blues’ tour match against Manchester City in the USA scheduled for the day before. Chelsea are due to play City twice in the USA – with the second match at New York’s Yankee stadium on May 25, the day before the play-off date. The Premier League statement says both the clubs have been consulted. It states: “In the event of results in the Chelsea v Everton and Newcastle v Arsenal Barclays Premier League matches being a Chelsea draw, and an Arsenal win by a single-goal margin having scored two more than Chelsea, both teams would be level on points, goal difference and goals scored.” Under Premier League Rules this would lead to a play-off being required to decide which club finishes third and fourth, thereby determining which club enters the UEFA Champions League at the group stage and which at the play-off stage. Tickets will be allocated equally between each club and will be priced at £20 and £30 with concessions for children and senior citizens priced at a 50% reduction. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Cricket News Six, Run-Out, Wicket! Barbados Tridents Lose By One Run, St Kitts And Nevis Patriots Enter CPL Knock-Outs

first_imgNew Delhi: Shakib Al Hasan was batting brilliantly for Barbados Tridents in their Caribbean Premier League encounter against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. At 85/2 in the 12th over in pursuit of 150, it seemed Barbados Tridents had a great chance. However, a collapse of five wickets for 14 runs in three and a half overs saw St Kitts and Nevis roar back into the contest. The equation boiled down to 12 runs off the final over. Dominic Drakes was bowling it and he started off with a wide. The equation became five runs off five balls when Raymon Reifer hit a six over deep extra cover. However, when Reifer was run-out in the process of a second run, Barbados Tridents needed four runs off four balls but they had one wicket remaining. Harry Gurney and Chemar Holder hung and they needed two runs off one ball. However, Drakes got the perfect delivery on off stump and Gurney was cleaned up as Barbados Tridents lost by one run. The result meant that St Kitts and Nevis Patriots joined Guyana Amazon Warriors in the Caribbean Premier League knock-outs. Also Read | 19 In Final Over And Super Over – Carlos Brathwaite’s Fascinating Contribution In CPL T20 WinThe credit for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots’ win went to Carlos Brathwaite, who took three wickets in the middle overs, which included Shakib (38) and JP Duminy (18) and was named the Man of the Match. Brathwaite’s effort ensured Shamarh Brooks fifty for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots did not go down in vain. Also Read | Trinbago Knight Riders Smash Highest Score In Franchise T20 Cricket, Beat Jamaica TallawahsSt Kitts and Nevis Patriots chose to bat and the entire innings revolved around Brooks’ fifty, who took control after Evin Lewis struggled to get going. Brooks shared a partnership of 43 with Devon Thomas but St Kitts and Nevis Patriots lost momentum heading into the final overs as they lost three wickets for 10 runs. A brace of cameos from Fabian Allen and Keron Cottoy helped St Kitts and Nevis Patriots reach 149/7, with Gurney and Hayden Walsh picking two wickets each.In response, Johnson Charles fell to Sheldon Cottrell while Alex Hales fell to Rayad Emrit. Shakib held the key but Brathwaite’s burst in the middle overs dented Barbados Tridents. This loss might hurt them significantly. With two games to go, they are in fifth position and three points behind Trinbago Knight Riders and one behind St Lucia Zouks. A win against St Lucia Zouks could seal their play-off spot while a loss could eliminate them. St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have played all their league games while Trinbago Knight Riders have played just seven, the same as Guyana Amazon Warriors. Guyana are currently undefeated in the tournament and they look set to finish on top of the table.RELATED  For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

A Long Walk To Freedom: Buju Banton Delivers Historic Performance in…

first_imgCredit: Ryan Mattis After being incarcerated for eight years, Reggae superstar Buju Banton delivered a historic performance at the first stop on his ‘Long Walk To Freedom’ Tour in Kingston, which was said to be one of the most anticipated reggae shows to ever be held in Jamaica. On Saturday, March 16, 2019, Buju Banton kicked off his ‘Long Walk To Freedom’ Tour at the National Stadium in Kingston. It was pandemonium as locals, as well as tourists and international celebrities, flocked to see his first show since his release in December 2018. At full capacity, the national stadium seats approximately 35,000 people, but the number of patrons at this first show exceeded capacity, leaving many persons to stand in walk-ways or sit in aisles.The gates opened at 4:00 PM and early performances included Ghost, LUST and Buju’s son Jahazeil Myrie. As the night went on, other reggae artists gave stellar performances; namely, Agent Sasco, Chris Martin, Romain Virgo, Etana, Cocoa Tea who was joined by reggae newcomer Koffee, and Chronixx.At about 11:20 pm, the man of the year graced the stage. Dressed in all white, with his locs long and flashing, an almost-spiritual Buju Banton began his performance asking “have mercy on me”.The crowd erupted, in one of the loudest roars ever to be heard from the National Stadium, as Banton opened with his hit song “Not an Easy Road”.Although there were a few glitches an technical difficulties relating to mic and sound, that still did not put a damper on the celebration. Buju was in his element, and it was clear. In his two-hour set, the superstar did not miss a beat as far as connection, energy and stage presence.Soul-wrenching classics like “Destiny” and “Untold Stories” had an emotional effect on many patrons in the audience, while the dancehall hits like “Too Bad”, “Champion” and of course, “Driver A” put the crowd in a frenzy.And he brought even more artists to share his moment. British-Jamaican rapper Stefflondon; Marcia Griffiths, whom he said was like a mother to him, Wayne Wonder; and the legendary Beres Hammond all joined Banton on stage.Buju’s performance ended much like the way it started, in a spiritual fashion. He shared the stage, for his last performance of the night, with Gramps Morgan, collaborating on “Psalms 23”.The historic night came to an end, shortly after 1:00 am, with fireworks that lit up the national stadium.last_img read more
