Rihanna isn't the only celeb to be spotted out and about as West Indies took on Sri Lanka in the Cricket World Cup. Much to everyone's surprise, Rihanna was in Chester-le-Street on Monday to watch the two teams in action at Durham Emirates Riverside ground. She was there to cheer on West Indies, having gone to school with batsman Carlos Braithwaite but people were stunned by her appearance, with some great reactions from Chester-le-Street residents. One of the other Windies players in action on Monday, as Sri Lanka took victory by 23 runs, was the country's cricket legend Chris Gayle. Gayle hit a massive six as Rihanna looked on on a warm and sunny afternoon in County Durham but then Chris Gayle then top-edged a shot high up in the air which was well caught. The 39 year old, who has hit a total of 302 sixes, has been making the most of his time in the North East, and hit on the heels of the full Sri Lankan team heading to the restaurant last week, Chris turned up at new … [Read more...] about West Indies cricket legend Chris Gayle enjoys curry in Newcastle
West Indies head coach Floyd Reifer has revealed his team tried to process their disappointing World Cup campaign with a lengthy soul-searching session. Reifer's side were officially eliminated from the race to qualify for the semi-finals after losing to India on Thursday. With two matches still to play, starting against Sri Lanka in Durham on Monday, Reifer was keen to avoid his team losing their motivation. So he held a team meeting in the Old Trafford changing rooms that lasted over an hour as the squad looked to come to terms with their failure to live up to pre-tournament hype. "We had a long conversation in the dressing room, so we did a lot of soul-searching," Reifer told reporters on Sunday. "It is important for us and important for the fans in the Caribbean as well, for us to put up the performances, even at the back end of the World Cup. "Yes, we are out of the World Cup, but there is still a lot of cricket to play after the World Cup. "It's important for us to find the … [Read more...] about Reifer reveals West Indies’ World Cup soul-searching

The West Indies started their World Cup campaign in style, blowing Pakistan away to revive memories of their glory days of swashbuckling batting and fearsome fast bowling. But, six games in, it is a familiar tale of what-ifs as the two-time former champions contemplate another failed campaign dogged by their old foe -- inconsistency. Carlos Brathwaite on Saturday exemplified West Indies' fighting spirit and impressive reserves of talent, smashing a breathtaking century to take his side agonisingly close to victory against New Zealand at Old Trafford. But instead of completing an unlikely and glorious win, Jason Holder's team lost by five runs, effectively ending their hopes of qualifying for the semi-finals of the 50-over event. It is a familiar scenario for West Indies sides and former paceman Ian Bishop believes the lack of time the team's core group spends together is one reason for their below-par showing in England and Wales. "Obviously they are a talented team," Bishop told AFP. … [Read more...] about Former kings West Indies flatter to deceive once again
