ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC):Jason Mohammed hit a maiden One-Day International half-century and Jonathan Carter gathered his third but West Indies failed to come to grips with a challenging run chase, and slumped to a 45-run defeat to England in the opening game of a three-match series here yesterday.Asked to overhaul 297 after England captain Eoin Morgan had struck his 10th ODI hundred, West Indies lost wickets in clusters and were bowled out for 251 in the 48th over, to suffer their sixth one-day defeat in their last eight outings.Mohammed, in only his third ODI and his first international appearance in two years, top-scored with 72 while Carter weighed in with a robust 52 and Shai Hope, 31.The right-handed Mohammed anchored two successive half stands, which pulled West Indies around from danger at 39 for three in the 12th over and lifted them into a strong position at 190 for four in the 39th over.But Carter’s dismissal signalled a decline for the hosts and they lost their last wickets for 61 runs in the space of 54 balls, to fall behind in the series.SECOND GAMESeamers Liam Plunkett (4-40) and Chris Woakes (4-47) did nearly all the damage, grabbing four wickets apiece, to underline a potent England performance ahead of Sunday’s second game at the same venue.Sent in, the tourists slumped to 29 for two in the eighth over after speedster Shannon Gabriel struck twice early on but the left-handed Morgan came to his side’s rescue with a superb 107 off 116 deliveries.All-rounder Ben Stokes hit 55 and opener Sam Billings gathered 52, while Moeen Ali came at the end to produce a cameo unbeaten 31 from 22 balls.Following a half-hour delayed start because of wet run-ups and then rain, England found themselves stunned after Gabriel prised out Jason Roy (13) and Joe Root (4) cheaply.Roy, dropped by captain Jason Holder off a caught and bowled chance in the fifth over, perished in the following over – lbw on the back foot to one which kept low.Gabriel then got the prized wicket of Root, spectacularly bowling the right-hander with a quick delivery which jagged back and found the batsman rooted to the crease.However, Morgan arrived to steady the innings, anchoring three partnerships which ensured England reached the fourth highest total at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium.He put on 67 for the third wicket with Billings, 110 for the fifth wicket with Stokes before adding a further 53 with Moeen Ali for the sixth wicket.Morgan, dropped on four in the 11th over by Kieran Powell at first slip off the first ball of seamer Carlos Brathwaite’s opening spell, made the most of the opportunity to raise his 32nd ODI half-century off 67 balls in the 31st over.He then required only another 45 deliveries to reach three figures, clearing the ropes at mid-wicket with Brathwaite to bring up the landmark in the 48th over.In reply, West Indies were given a solid if not spectacular start of 36 by left-hander Evin Lewis who made 21 and Kraigg Brathwaite who scored 14.LEADING EDGELewis was looking ominous when against the run of play, he pulled an innocuous delivery from Woakes into the lap of deep mid-wicket in the 10th over.Powell, making a return to international cricket following a three-year break, failed to impress as he perished in the 11th over for one, caught at point off a leading edge by Jason Roy off Plunkett.And in the following over, Brathwaite found himself in a tangle against an ordinary short ball from Woakes and swatted a simple catch to Adil Rashid at mid-on.Mohammed then instigated a recovery, first in a 69-run, fourth wicket stand with Hope and then in an entertaining 82-run, fifth wicket partnership with Carter.All told, he faced 91 balls and struck seven fours.SCOREBOARDlast_img read more

Warriors fall flat in first game at Chase Center

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO — For his first shot in his new home, Stephen Curry pulled up from 30 feet — and air balled.It was an anticlimactic start after the buildup of the Chase Center’s first game, and reflected the Warriors’ early disjointedness in Saturday’s 123-101 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.The Warriors missed its first 10 shots as a team before Curry made the first basket four minutes into the game. After trailing by as many as 18 points, the Warriors used a 31-point second quarter to cut the …last_img

Twitter’s Dickbar Meets Its Demise

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Tags:#NYT#twitter#web When Twitter rolled out an update to its iPhone app earlier this month, it included a new feature that quickly became the bane of most upgraders’ experience. The QuickBar permanently hovered at the top of your tweet-stream, giving you a real-time update of trending topics.After resoundingly negative feedback that included the new label by which we now refer to the feature – the DickBar (named after Twitter CEO Dick Costolo) – Twitter made some tweaks so that the feature didn’t always appear. And now – rejoice – Twitter has killed the feature altogether, announcing that an update available in the App Store today will return your official Twitter iPhone app to its DickBar-less state. “After testing a feature and evaluating its merits, if we learn it doesn’t improve the user experience or serve our mission,” says Twitter, “we’ll remove that feature.” It was pretty clear that the QuickBar did not improve the user experience, as Instapaper founder Marco Arment pointed out in a blistering blog post that labeled its introduction “offensive”: “It’s a news ticker limited to one-word items, lacking any context, broadcasting mostly topics that I don’t understand, recognize, or care about. It’s nonsensical. At worst, it can offend. At best, it will confuse.”Despite the unpleasant user experience, many speculated that the introduction of the QuickBar was part of Twitter’s plans to eventually insert ads and monetize the tweet-stream. In making its announcement today, Twitter says that it does believe “there are still significant benefits to increasing awareness of what’s happening outside the home timeline. Evidence of the incredibly high usage metrics for the QuickBar support this.”But it’s “back to the drawing board,” says Twitter. Thankfully, now co-founder Jack Dorsey is back at that drawing board too, having just announced earlier this week that he’s stepping back in to take a more active role in Twitter’s product.
