SAMMY CRITICAL The meeting was also attended by current men’s T20 captain Darren Sammy, who criticised the board following the final of the T20 World Cup in India earlier this month. The WICB said that only recently, it took the decision to review all governance reports to determine if there were relevant parts that could still be implemented. The Patterson Report, authored by former Jamaica Prime Minister PJ Patterson, was produced in 2007, but its main recommendation of a Council of Stakeholders, comprising 23 members, has been ignored by the WICB. “The one recommendation that has not been favoured by the current, or the previous board, is the adding of another layer to the existing body,” the board said. “That has been the bane of contention in recent times, with a few groups calling for the dissolution of the board.” Despite the heavy criticism it received, the board maintained it had performed well. “The board, so far, has lived up to its promises, and while that is being done ‘let’s trust the process’.” ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC): Regional governing body, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), has once again pushed back on growing calls for its dissolution, claiming yesterday that it had “lived up to its promises” and urging the region to “trust the process”. Referring to “small groups” that were “clamouring for its dissolution”, the board, in a statement, defended its stewardship, repeating the argument that it had already implemented 90 per cent of all recommendations from the various commissioned governance reports. The fact that it had opted not to restructure along the lines suggested by the Patterson Report was not enough reason to justify dissolution, the Dave Cameron-led WICB contended. Further, the board pointed to the Under-19 team and the senior men’s and women’s Twenty20 World Cup teams and said their recent success was proof of the board’s efficiency. “In under 100 days since the start of 2016, three teams from the West Indies in two formats won three world titles,” the WICB said. “That accomplishment has come as part of the high-performance programme implemented just over two years ago. That there are small groups clamouring for the board’s dissolution is reason to ask. What more could a region want? “The acceptance of an average of 90 per cent of all the commissioned reports received have been implemented, minus adding another layer of bureaucracy cannot justify calling for the board to be dissolved. “Instead, the small groups should consider, among other things, promises made by governments to contribute to the growth of cricket by hosting matches or international series; continuing to facilitate development that aids in the growth of the sport; creating a more enabling environment for movement around the region; revitalising cricket in the schools across the region; (and) assisting in the setting up of territorial academies.” The board statement comes one day after several West Indies legends, including Sir Garry Sobers, Sir Wes Hall, Sir Vivian Richards, and Sir Andy Roberts issued a joint statement backing the CARICOM Governance Panel recommendation for the dissolution of the WICB and also calling for the immediate resignation of the board of directors. Outstanding former players Deryck Murray, Charlie Griffith, and Desmond Haynes were also among the group, which met in Grenada last week to discuss the matter. The legends also met with Grenada’s Prime Minister, Dr Keith Mitchell, the chairman of CARICOM’s subcommittee on cricket, who has been at forefront of the push for the WICB to be restructured.

They drew with Leicester on Sunday but Manchester City’s defeat at Southampton means the Louis van Gaal’s men are four points behind their neighbours with a game in hand.United have scored only 19 goals away from home and need one more from either this game or next week’s trip to West Ham to avoid setting a club record. Their previous fewest number of away goals in the Premier League is 21, set last season.And they have managed just 17 wins, two short of their record fewest Premier League wins, set in the 2013-14 campaign.Norwich, though, have lost 20 league games – only relegated Aston Villa (26) have lost more. And the Canaries have lost 11 and draw two of their last 15 league games. Leaving them with a desperate fight for safety.

ROME (AP):It’s no coincidence that Juventus have won Serie A every season since the Juventus Stadium opened in September 2011.The Bianconeri have been virtually unbeatable in the Italian league’s only major club-owned stadium and improved on their own Serie A record with a 26th consecutive home win yesterday.Gonzalo Higuain scored his fourth brace of the season as Juventus beat Bologna 3-0.Juventus held the previous record of 25 straight home wins, established at the stadium between 2013 and 2015.The current streak began against Bologna on Oct. 24, 2015, and Bologna never really had a chance to prevent the latest record.Higuain opened the scoring with a volley from a lobbed pass from Miralem Pjanic seven minutes in, Paulo Dybala added a penalty before the break and then Higuain headed in another early in the second half.Juventus, which still have a game in hand, restored their four-point lead over Roma, which beat Genoa 1-0 earlier.Lazio also won 1-0, over struggling Crotone with a last-minute goal from Ciro Immobile after Lucas Biglia hit the crossbar with a penalty in the first half.Lazio are fourth, one point behind third-placed Napoli, which beat Sampdoria 2-1 on Saturday.Fresh off their Italian Super Cup win over Juventus, fifth-placed AC Milan needed a late goal to beat visiting Cagliari 1-0.Carlos Bacca scored from close range two minutes from the end after being set up by Gianluca Lapadula.Cagliari ended with 10 men when Bruno Alves was sent off for pulling down Bacca just outside the area to prevent a clear scoring opportunity in added time.FREE KICKEarlier, Ivan Perisic scored twice and seventh-placed Inter Milan came from a goal down to beat Udinese 2-1 and win their fourth straight game.Perisic equalised in first-half added time, slotting a shot inside the near post after receiving a pass from Mauro Icardi, then headed in from a free kick three minutes from the end.It was the first brace in Serie A for Perisic, a Croatia international who joined Inter from Wolfsburg in 2015.Jakub Jankto, a 20-year-old Czech midfielder, had put Udinese ahead early in the first half after being set up by French talent Seko Fofana.Atalanta revived their chances of finishing in the Europa League spots with a convincing 4-1 win at Chievo Verona.Domenico Berardi returned from a long injury layoff for Sassuolo in a 0-0 draw with Torino.The Pescara-Fiorentina match was postponed due to too much snow and ice inside and around the Stadio Adriatico.
