first_img1 April 2014 The Momentum Proteas qualified for the semi-finals of the ICC Women’s World T20 for the first time with a five-wicket win over New Zealand in Sylhet on Monday. It was also a first-ever win for the South African women over the White Ferns in a World Cup. In three previous Women’s World Twenty20 tournaments, South Africa had finished bottom of their pool on every occasion, so to progress to the final four is a major step forward for Hilton Moreeng’s charges.‘The greatest moment’ “This is unquestionably the greatest moment in the history of South African women’s cricket to reach the semi-finals of a major ICC event,” Cricket South Africa President Chris Nenzani said in a statement on Monday. “It is indeed one of the great moments in the history of women’s sport in our country. “We are extremely proud of what our team has achieved and I wish them everything of the best for the rest of the tournament.”‘NZ innings Batting first after winning the toss, New Zealand managed only 114 for 8 in their 20 overs, with Sophie Devine’s 40 off 43 deliveries by far their best score. Only three other batswomen made it into doubles figures as the South African bowlers and fielders dominated. Medium pacer Marizanne Kapp starred with a haul of 3 for 23 in her four overs, while leg spinner Dane van Niekerk snared 2 for 12 in her three overs.SA reply South Africa lost two early wickets in their run chase, falling to 16 for 2, before Van Niekerk and captain Mignon du Preez came together to put on 36 for the third wicket before Van Niekerk fell for 23. Du Preez and Kapp then added 54 runs for the fourth wicket before Kapp was out for 23 with victory in sight. There was a slight hiccup when Du Preez fell on the same total for a captain’s knock of 51 off 47 balls. Tension was high as only 14 balls remained, with nine runs required, and two new batswomen at the crease. Chloe Tryon and Shandre Fritz showed few nerves, however, taking the Proteas to victory only four balls later.‘An incredible job’ “I thought that our bowlers did an incredible job today,” South Africa’s captain Mignon du Preez said after the match. “Kappie [Marizanne Kapp] and Dane [van Niekerk], as the seniors, led from the front and took matters into their own hands, taking wickets just when we needed them. The rest of our bowling unit, including Sune [Luus], PJ [Sunette Loubser] and Shibby [Shabnim Ismail] were fantastic in keeping the pressure up. “I am extremely impressed with the dog fight and spirit that the team displayed. We knew that this was a make-or-break game and we put our hearts into it, and I’m just really glad we gave the country something to cheer for today.”‘I’m peaking at the right time’ Reflecting on her contribution with the bat, Du Preez said: “It’s always great to be able to pitch in and play a big role for the team, just as they need it. As a captain, you want to always do well and today was a particularly important game, so I’m really glad that I’m peaking at the right time.” The Proteas will face either England or the West Indies in the semi-finals and Du Preez says no matter who her team faces it will be business as usual. “I think the formula we have been using has worked for us so far and we’re happy to continue with things the way that they are,” she explained. “We obviously want to be at our very best for the next match and we have a few kinks to work out, but right now, we are just going to regroup and just for tonight, enjoy this epic and historic win,” she concluded.

first_imgIt has been little over a year that Mehtab Hossain made his comeback to the senior national team after a stellar season for East Bengal.Having made his senior team debut during the SAFF Championships in 2005, the midfielder’s international career has been blighted by injuries and despite performing well at the club level, he failed to make the cut for the Asian Cup in 2011.Now with a new chief coach – Dutchman Wim Koevermans at the helm, Mehtab is aiming to give his best so that India can complete a hat-trick of Nehru Cup titles, even though players like Bhaichung Bhutia, Climax Lawrence and Mahesh Gawli have retired.”Some of the young players who performed well in the AFC under-22 championship have the potential to succeed at a higher level. It is hard to replace a Bhaichung or Climax but players such as Manandeep Singh have to take up the challenge,” Mehtab told Mail Today.Mehtab, who recently returned from Scotland after undergoing trials at Airdrie FC, said that the experience of playing in foreign conditions benefited him immensely. He says that the team management was impressed with him but he was not able to procure a work permit.”Playing in Scotland was a great experience. The facilities and the environment are excellent and the coaching staff at Airdrie was impressed with my skills. But I was not able to join them because of work permit issues. But I have got assurance from East Bengal that they would support me if I get a chance to play abroad,” Mehtab said.advertisementThe senior team has not played any tournament after the AFC Challenge Cup debacle in March and Mehtab admits that success in Nehru Cup would provide a boost. “The players know the importance of the tournament. The coach is trying to bring in a new style of play and as professional players, we have to try our best to implement his ideas on the field,” he added.last_img read more

first_imgTV presenters Ant and Dec have announced a brand new documentary project, as they set out to spend time with HRH The Prince of Wales to mark the 40th anniversary of The Prince’s Trust for ITV and track the journey since His Royal Highness set up the organisation in 1976.As long-term ambassadors for the charity, over the next year the pair will accompany The Prince on key engagements and get more involved in the work The Trust does to support vulnerable young people in the UK. The 90-minute special will air on ITV early in 2016, the year The Prince’s Trust celebrates its 40th anniversary.Ant and Dec are a similar vintage to The Trust – both were born the year before it was founded in 1976 – and together with His Royal Highness they will reflect on the four decades that have passed since The Trust set out to improve the lives of disadvantaged young people in the UK, meeting some of those it has supported along the way and hearing their extraordinary stories.Ant and Dec will gain a close perspective as they visit courses and Prince’s Trust Centres to get an inside look at the efforts made to help 13 to 30 year olds, many of whom come from a care background, and who deal with a range of challenges such as homelessness, mental health issues, unemployment, difficulties at school and offending.Ant and Dec said: “We are hugely excited to be working with HRH The Prince of Wales on our first project of this kind. We’ve worked with The Prince’s Trust for years and know what an incredible job they do of supporting young people right across the UK.“This is a unique opportunity for us to get under the skin of a great organisation and its founder, to pose the questions we’ve always wanted to ask and to see the achievements of the young people celebrated.”Commenting last year on the occasion of the duo’s National Television Award celebrating 25 years in television, The Prince of Wales said: “I have had the great pleasure of meeting them on many occasions over the last fifteen years, as avid and generous supporters of The Prince’s Trust taking time out from their extremely busy schedules to support and inspire those young people who come to us in disadvantaged and difficult situations.“As role models, they have led by example, showing a work ethic and a dedication that I know is appreciated by, and encouraging to, the many courageous young men and women who come to my Trust seeking guidance in trying to make a better life for themselves and in turn, in some cases, their families and communities.”Martina Milburn CBE, Chief Executive of The Prince’s Trust, said: “The Prince’s Trust has made positive changes to generations of vulnerable young people since its inception and we’re really excited that Ant and Dec are going to be highlighting the work we do to mark this milestone in our history.”The documentary will be directed by award-winning director Michael Waldman for Spun Gold Productions.

Andrew said: “We are delighted to be following The Prince’s Trust over a year to celebrate this landmark occasion. This special programme will see Ant and Dec spending time throughout the year with The Prince and seeing at close hand the work he does within the Trust aimed at enhancing young people’s lives up and down the country. This promises to be a major event in the schedule and a real treat for our viewers!”

Daniela Neumann, Creative Director at Spun Gold, adds: “We are so very proud to be producing such a landmark documentary to mark the 40th anniversary of The Prince’s Trust. We can’t wait to provide viewers with unprecedented access into the charity and more importantly highlight its life changing work that has touched so many lives and made a profound impact on our nation. It is always an honour to work alongside The Prince of Wales, and Ant and Dec are undoubtedly the nation’s most loved presenters.
