Bairstow, Burns warm up for opening Test with fifties

first_imgCAVE HILL, Barbados,  CMC – Jonny Bairstow and Rory Burns found form ahead of next week’s first Test, hitting half-centuries on the opening day of the second two-day match against CWI President’s XI here yesterday. The charismatic Bairstow narrowly missed out on a hundred with 98 while opener Burns carved out 68 as the tourists, opting for first knock, were dismissed at the close for 379 in their first innings.Adil Rashid, batting at number 10, chipped in with 48 while Sam Curran got 47 and Chris Woakes, 43. Left-arm seamer Raymon Reifer (3-39) and part-time off-spinner John Campbell (3-58) picked up three wickets apiece on a day of toil for the hosts at the 3W’s Oval here on the outskirts of the city.Jonny BairstowKeaton Jennings failed for the second time this week when he perished lbw to Reifer for seven in the morning’s seventh over but Bairstow and Burns took command for England in a 118-run, second wicket stand. Bairstow’s knock was a breezy one, coming from just 112 balls and including 10 fours while Burns struck nine fours in 89 balls at the crease.They took England to lunch at 137 for one but Burns departed in the fourth over following the resumption, stumped off off-spinner Bryan Charles.Jos Buttler helped add 33 for the third wicket with Bairstow before falling to a catch at the wicket off Reifer at 181 and Bairstow was removed by Reifer with 16 runs added, as England lost four wickets for 47 runs to slip to 228 for six, in the second over after tea. But Curran and then Woakes and Rashid then propped up the lower order. Curran faced 64 deliveries and counted five fours, adding 30 for the seventh wicket with Ben Foakes (22) before combining with Woakes to put on a further 45 for the eighth wicket.Woakes and Rashid inflicted more pain on the President’s XI, playing with abandon in adding 73 for the ninth wicket.last_img read more

Controversies over F.A Cup winners

first_imgIt would interest you to know that before this morning, most Ghanaians had the records of the most prestigious cup in the annals of Ghanaian football, wrong.On the ultimate Sports Show on Asempa fm, the issue of the number of titles won by each club in the F.A Cup came up, after New Edubiase won the 34th edition of the F.A Cup on Sunday 5th August, 2012. It became necessary to know all the previous winners of the F.A Cup.Pundits have been quick to come out with the following statistics concerning the previous winners based on information from some websites:Number of Titles Clubs9 Hearts of Oak (Accra)8 Asante Kotoko (Kumasi)4 Real Republicans (Accra) (1 shared)3 Great Olympics (Accra)2 Cornerstones (Kumasi) (1 shared)1 Eleven Wise (Sekondi)1 Mysterious Dwarfs (Cape Coast)1 Okwahu United (Nkawkaw)1 Ghapoha (Tema)1 Goldfields (Obuasi)1 Hasaacas (Sekondi)1 Voradep (Ho)1 Nania Fc1 New EdubiaseI state with all equivocation that the above list is incorrect because on Sunday 5th August, 1990, Kumasi Asante Kotoko beat Accra Hearts of Oak 4-2, Isaac Kwakye, Joe Debrah and Robert Eshun scored the goals for Kotoko to beat Hearts of Oak whose goals were scored by Yaw Preko and Ablade Kumah in the F.A Cup final. The following day, which is 6th August, 1990 Hearts of Oak lodged a protest with the GFA that Joe Debrah who played a key role in Kotoko’s victory was unqualified because he had yellow cards in OGLCA Cup, League and F.A Cup. The Disciplinary Committee, after sitting on the case declared Kotoko losers on 28th October, 1990 and an appeal by Kotoko was quashed by the Appeals Committee. As a result of this it makes Hearts of Oak the 1990 F.A Cup winners instead of Kotoko.This is the correct winners list of the F.A CupNumber of Titles Clubs10 Hearts of Oak (Accra)7 Asante Kotoko (Kumasi)4 Real Republicans (Accra) (1 shared)3 Great Olympics (Accra)2 Cornerstones (Kumasi) (1 shared)1 Eleven Wise (Sekondi)1 Mysterious Dwarfs (Cape Coast)1 Okwahu United (Nkawkaw)1 Ghapoha (Tema)1 Goldfields (Obuasi)1 Hasaacas (Sekondi)1 Voradep (Ho)1 Nania Fc1 New EdubiaseFull list of Cup the F.A Cup WinnersSeason Winners Runners-Up1958 Asante Kotoko (Kumasi) 4-2 Hearts of Oak (Accra) [Aspro Cup]1959 Cornerstones (Kumasi) Great Ashantis (Kumasi)1960 Asante Kotoko (Kumasi) 3-2 Hearts of Oak (Accra)1961/62 Real Republicans (Accra) 0-0 Replay 1-1,Replay 2-1 Asante Kotoko (Kumasi)1962/63 Real Republicans (Accra) 1-1 Repay 2-0 Cornerstones (Kumasi)1963/64 Real Republicans (Accra) Great Ashantis (Kumasi)1965 Real Republicans (Accra) and Cornerstones (Kumasi) [shared] (After matches ended in a drawn game twice)1966 competition abandoned1967 not played1968 Mysterious Dwarfs (Cape Coast) 4-2 Mighty Eagles (Ho)1969/70 not played1970/71 abandoned at semi-final stage1972 not played1973 Hearts of Oak (Accra) 2-2 replay 2-0 Akotex (Akosombo)1974 Hearts of Oak (Accra) 4-0 All Blacks (Swedru)1975 Great Olympics (Accra) 2-1 Brong-Ahofu United (Sunyani)1976 Asante Kotoko (Kumasi) 1-0 Eleven Wise (Sekondi)1977 not played1978 Asante Kotoko (Kumasi) 7-1 Gold Stars (Tarkwa)1979 Hearts of Oak (Accra) Eleven Wise (Sekondi)1980 no competition [other sources: Hasaacas (Sekondi)]1981 Hearts of Oak (Accra) 2-2 Replay 1-0 Real Tamale United1982 Eleven Wise (Sekondi) 1-0 Hasaacas (Sekondi)1983 Great Olympics (Accra) 3-0 Tano Bafoakwa (Sunyani)1984 Asante Kotoko (Kumasi) 1-0 Goldfields (Obuasi)1985 Hasaacas (Sekondi) 2-0 Asante Kotoko (Kumasi)1986 Okwahu United (Nkawkaw) Real Tamale United1987 no competition [other sources: Hearts of Oak (Accra)]1988 no competition [other sources: Hearts of Oak (Accra)]1989 Hearts of Oak (Accra) 1-1 Cornerstones (Kumasi) [4-1 pen]1989/90 Asante Kotoko (Kumasi) 4-2 Hearts of Oak (Accra)1990/91 no competition [other sources: Asante Kotoko (Kumasi)]1991/92 Voradep (Ho) 2-2 Neoplan Stars (Kumasi) [3-2 pen]1992/93 Goldfields (Obuasi) 0-0 (4-3 penalties) Mysterious Dwarfs (Cape Coast)1993/94 Hearts of Oak (Accra) 2-1 Mysterious Dwarfs (Cape Coast)1994/95 Great Olympics (Accra) 1-0 Hearts of Oak (Accra)1995/96 Hearts of Oak (Accra) 1-0 Ghapoha (Tema)1996/97 Ghapoha (Tema) 1-0 Okwahu United (Nkawkaw)1997/98 Asante Kotoko (Kumasi) 1-0 Real Tamale United1999 Hearts of Oak (Accra) 3-1 Great Olympics2000 Hearts of Oak (Accra) 2-0 Okwahu United (Nkawkaw)2001 Asante Kotoko (Kumasi) 1-0 King Faisal (Kumasi) [aet]2010/2011 Nania fc 1-0 Asante Kotoko2011/2012 New Edubiase 1-0 Ashgold The information is very credible and authentic, because I have set the following records straight and no one has been able to challenge any of them.(1) I came out that Agyeman Badu’s nation cup goal against Guinea in the AFCON 2012, was not Ghana’s 100th nations cup, but it was our 99th AFCON goal after everybody thought it was our 100th goal in the nations cup.(2) I challenged Kotoko’s 22nd league title and now everybody has accepted the fact that it was Kotoko’s 21st league title, including Kotoko express, the official mouth piece of Kotoko.(3) I set the records straight about Ghana’s highest victory and heaviest defeat.(4) I set the records straight about the previous winners of the SWAG Awards.last_img read more
