Umpires: Deighton Butler, Gregory Brathwaite. SCOREBOARD Partnership KINGSTOWN, St Vincent, (CMC): Devon Thomas fashioned his second first-class hundred but his first in regional cricket, while left-arm spinner Nikita Miller then grabbed two wickets to inch towards 400 first-class wickets, as Jamaica Scorpions dominated Windward Islands Volcanoes on the second day of their ninth-round contest yesterday. The right-handed Thomas, an Antiguan who captained Leeward Islands Hurricanes up to last season, stroked an enterprising 122 to guide his new side up to 445 all out in their first innings at the Arnos Vale Stadium. Captain Paul Palmer struck a career-best 82 in a fabulous 178-run, sixth wicket partnership with Thomas, which enabled Scorpions to build on their overnight 284 for five. Left-arm seamer Delorn Johnson was the best bowler, with four for 84, while off-spinner and captain Liam Sebastien picked up three for 113, and leg-spinner Keron Cottoy, two for 128. In reply, Volcanoes were going strong at 138 for three, but lost two wickets late in the day to finish on 149 for five – still 296 runs behind going into day three. Sunil Ambris top-scored with a breezy 50 off 77 balls, with five fours and a six, rookie Jerlani Robinson chipped in with 31, while veteran opener Devon Smith struck 26. The 33-year-old Miller, who has played one Test and 46 One-Day Internationals, but has been overlooked by selectors for the last 12 months, knocked over Under-19 World Cup star Gidron Pope for 14 and then claimed Ambris, to move to 398 first-class wickets. Thomas owned the day, however, with a classy innings – only his second triple- figure score in seven years. Resuming the day on 24 not out, he counted 13 fours and two sixes in a knock that spanned 166 deliveries and just over 31/2 hours.

24 August 2012President Jacob Zuma has announced the composition and terms of reference of the judicial commission of inquiry into the Marikana tragedy, calling for cooperation from all parties involved so that the country can come to a full understanding of the causes behind the tragedy.Thirty-four people were killed in clashes with the police at the mining town of Marikana near Rustenburg last Thursday. Prior to this, 10 other people – including two police officers – were killed in nearly a week of fighting between rival worker factions.A number of memorial services took place around the country on Thursday as South Africa mourned those who lost their lives and came together to show support for the families of the deceased.Addressing journalists in Pretoria on Thursday, Zuma said the commission of inquiry would be headed by Judge Ian Farlam, a retired judge of the Supreme Court of Appeal, and include advocates Bantubonke Tokota and Pingla Hemraj.In investigating the events leading up to the tragedy, the commission has been tasked with looking into the conduct of mining company Lonmin, the South African Police Service (SAPS), and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU).Regarding Lonmin, the commission will investigate, in particular, whether the company:Exercised it best endeavours to resolve any disputes which may have risen between itself and the labour force on one hand, and generally among its labour force on the other.Responded appropriately to the threat and outbreak of violence which occurred at its premises.By act or omission, created an environment which was conducive to the creation of tension, labour unrest, disunity among its employees or other harmful conduct.Employed sufficient safeguards and measures to ensure the safety of its employees, property and the prevention of the outbreak of violence between any parties.The commission will also examine Lonmin’s policies generally, including its procedure, practices and conduct relating to its employees and organised labour.“It will also investigate whether by act or omission, the company directly or indirectly caused the loss of life or damaged to persons or property,” Zuma said.Regarding the SAPS, the Commission will look at:The nature, extent and application of any standing orders, policy considerations, legislation or other considerations in dealing with the situation that gave rise to the incidents.The fact and circumstances that gave rise to the use of force and whether this was reasonable and justifiable in the circumstances.The role played by SAPS through its respective units, individually and collectively in dealing with the incident.Whether by act or omission, it directly or indirectly caused the loss of life or harm to persons or property.Regarding the NUM and AMCU, the Commission will look at:Whether the unions had exercised its best endeavours to resolve any disputes which may have arisen between itself and Lonmin or the other union or other parties.The extent to which the unions exercised effective control over its membership and those allied to it, in ensuring that their conduct was lawful and did not endanger the lives and property of other persons.Whether by act or omission, it directly or indirectly caused the loss of life or harm to persons or property.Zuma said the commission would also look into the role played by the Department of Mineral Resources, any other government department or agencies in relation to the incidents, and whether this was appropriate in the circumstances and consistent with their duties and obligations according to the law.“The Commission will also look into the conduct of individuals and loose groupings in fermenting and/or otherwise promoting a situation of conflict and confrontation which may have given rise to the tragic incident, whether directly or indirectly,” the President said.The commission will submit interim reports and recommendations to Zuma each month before the final report is presented.The commission’s work will be completed in four months, and within a month thereafter it will submit its final report to the President.“The commission shall, where appropriate, refer any matter for prosecution, further investigation or the convening of a separate inquiry to the appropriate law enforcement agency, government department or regulator regarding the conduct of a certain person or persons,” Zuma said.It will also have the necessary powers, including the power to enter and search premises, secure the attendance of witnesses and compel the production of documents.“We urge all affected parties to work with the commission so that the truth can be uncovered about what really happed in Marikana,” Zuma said.Source: SANews.gov.za

Pakistan’s captain Shahid Afridi reacts after misfield by a fellow team member, unseen, during the Cricket World Cup semifinal match between Pakistan and India in Mohali on Wednesday.Former Pakistan captain Aamir Sohail has blamed Shahid Afridi’s “defensive captaincy” for the team’s World Cup semifinal loss to India, saying the skipper succumbed to pressure in the high-voltage game.”The match began in earnest in the 11th over and there is no room for sentiment in this game. It was pivotal for Afridi and his team to attack and take wickets but that didn’t happen,” Sohail said after the 29-run defeat to India.”Even while Sachin struggled the slips were removed and he snatched singles at will and chances went abegging which increased the pressure on the team,” he noted.He said even though Afridi was aware of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s struggle for form in the tournament, he didn’t attack him.”Once again we failed to go for the jugular. Saeed Ajmal was bamboozling Sachin and should have been kept on. However, Afridi thought otherwise,” he said.Pakistan’s former Test batsman Basit Ali also slammed the defensive approach.”In the past we never won against India because of a defensive approach we always attacked them and put them under pressure. In the semi-final it was the other way around,” Basit said.Basit criticised Waqar Younis for not adopting a good game plan.”It really amazes me that our management was unaware of when to utilise the batting powerplay even though Abdul Razzaq was promoted in the order and at one stage Misbah was batting with Afridi.”advertisementFormer Test leg-spinner Abdul Qadir also felt that the Pakistan team management needed to learn from the defeat and take measures to deal with the problem of inconsistent batting.No Pakistani batsman managed to get a hundred in the World Cup with the highest run-getter being Misbah-ul-Haq with his 248 runs from eight matches.”Overall the team’s performance can be termed as satisfactory as it reached the last four stage against the odds but we need to address the issue of inconsistent batting and the good thing is we have found couple of good young batsmen now,” Qadir noted.A disgruntled citizen in Lahore also filed a civil petition in the High court on Thursday alleging that the government of Pakistan and its functionaries had gifted the semi-final to India in a bid to improve relations with India.The petitioner prayed to the court in his application that the telephone conversations of Shahid Afridi, Prime Minister, Yousuf Raza Gilani and interior minister, Rehman Malik be investigated and their recordings produced in court to verify his claims.- With PTI inputs

The win by the Cardinal eliminated Notre Dame from College Football Playoff contention, and kept Ohio State’s hopes alive after the Buckeyes thrashed Michigan today to finish the regular season 11-1. Naturally, Ohio State’s players and coaching staff were very happy with the outcome, and celebrated it on Twitter.

Twitter/@CoachKatieMeierMiami women’s basketball coach Katie Meier was not happy with the sexist slides from the Texas A&M football women’s clinic, which have gotten the Aggies criticized nationally and led to the suspension of two staff members.Last night, Meier blasted A&M on Twitter for the slides. She also expressed disapproval for only punishing offensive line coach Jim Turner and special teams coordinator Jeff Banks with two-week suspensions.Miami women’s basketball coach Katie Meier fires back at the Aggies’ presentation.This cannot be REAL life in 2016 college athletics. We are EDUCATORS. We WORK in higher education. W set standards https://t.co/WMvuRgXn8e— Katie Meier (@CoachKatieMeier) July 30, 2016 The actual slides are degrading and offensive. I have seen them. 2 week suspension is a joke. Change the culture https://t.co/586e9HTevu— Katie Meier (@CoachKatieMeier) July 30, 2016Meier is a well-respected coach, having compiled a 283-188 record (.591 winning percentage) at Charlotte and Miami. She has taken the Hurricanes to five NCAA Tournaments in the last six years.One of the suspended A&M coaches, Jim Turner, has been in hot water before. Turner was the offensive line coach of the Miami Dolphins in 2012-13 and was a major figure in the team’s bullying scandal.A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin released a statement apologizing for the action’s of his staffers.“There is absolutely no place in our program or in our University community for inappropriate conduct or degrading comments towards women, or anyone, regardless of intent.[…]“On behalf of Aggie football, I want to apologize for the comments at Chalk Talk and also for my failure to review their individual presentations. I want to thank the almost 700 women who came out this week who not only participated in the program but who supported a worthy cause in the Twin City Mission.”For a coach rumored to be on the hot seat, this is probably the last thing Sumlin needed.
