Windies need to stay disciplined, urges Coley

first_img “I think we got almost 70 overs in, two wickets down … I think we probably ideally would have wanted to have them four wickets down but we’ll come back tomorrow [and work hard],” Coley told reporters here. “We’ve seen it in two previous games where they have been very well positioned and then pretty much [collapsed] so we just need to be disciplined in our approach.” He added: “We need to follow our processes and as the day goes on we’ll be able to assess and reassess … but the key to tomorrow is that we remain disciplined and bowl in the areas that we know we need to.” Prolific opener Azhar Ali was in sight of another hundred on 85 not out and was partnered by the outstanding Younis Khan on 10. Azhar was joined by the 22-year-old rookie Babar Azam who chipped in with 55. Rain further frustrated West Indies’ progress in the post-lunch session was only two overs were possible, and Coley commended the bowlers for staying focused in spite of the interruptions. “We’re happy we were able to get on the park and play. We’ve been here before and we figured it was going to be one of those days [going] on and off so we’re happy were actually able to get the amount of cricket in that we did get,” the Jamaican explained. “Tomorrow (Thursday) gives us another opportunity to actually be better than we were today but I just want to give the bowlers a lot of credit. They stuck to it. It’s not easy to be on and off the field, focus, refocus and they stuck to their tasks so very well done by our bowlers.” ROSEAU, Dominica, (CMC): Assistant coach Andre Coley has urged a disciplined effort from West Indies bowlers on Thursday’s second day in an attempt to prevent Pakistan piling up a huge first innings score in their first innings of the decisive third Test here. The Caribbean side toiled without much success on a rain-hit day at Windsor Park as Pakistan, sent in on a slowish pitch, battled their way to on 169 for two at the close.last_img read more

REVEALED: FRAUDSTER’S SECRET VISITS TO CO DONEGAL

first_imgA FRENCH fraudster who stole millions of euro from Co Donegal investors has made secret visits back here, investigators believe.Officers from the PSNI and Interpol are checking reports that Francois de Dietrich travelled here under a false passport using freight ferries between France and Britain and then between Britain and the North.The most recent trip could have been just two months ago at a time when a European arrest warrant had been issued. He had fled a village near Paris last year after his location became known to French police.“We believe he may have used a DFDS freight route between Belfast and Heysham for the journey to Northern Ireland,” said one PSNI officer today.“And we believe he may have used that route on several occasions, perhaps as recently as February, before travelling to the North West to Derry and then to Donegal.”Gardai and the PSNI are keen to hear from anyone who have seen the conman in the North West in recent months.Francois de Dietrich offered dozens of Donegal investors massive returns if they handed over money to him.Some people initially made money out of their ‘investment’ but ultimately around €30M was scammed, with police now believing up to €20M of that was taken from people in Co Donegal.But donegaldaily.com rumbled the scam and de Dietrich fled the country.However British and Irish authorities moved to freeze bank accounts containing tens of millions of euro north and south of the Border.In January the French man, who was formerly based in Ballybofey, failed to turn up for a court hearing in Belfast where he was due to appeal an 18-month prison sentence for contempt of court.The jail term was imposed after he refused to reveal details of his worldwide assets to the UK Financial Services Authority.His former solicitor in Belfast was given permission by the courts to end representation for him.REVEALED: FRAUDSTER’S SECRET VISITS TO CO DONEGAL was last modified: April 25th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Francois de DietrichREVEALED: FRAUDSTER’S SECRET VISITS TO CO DONEGALlast_img read more
