COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP): Sri Lanka’s Test opener Kaushal Silva was taken to hospital yesterday after being hit on the head by a cricket ball while fielding in a domestic match. Sri Lanka Cricket said that Silva was struck during a match in Pallekele. His scans were clear, but he was flown to a hospital in the capital Colombo for further tests and observation, the cricket body added. Silva has played 24 Test matches for Sri Lanka and scored 1,404 runs at an average of 31. “Kaushal was fielding at short leg when he got hit,” espncricinfo.com quoted national team manager Charith Senanayake as saying. According to Senanayake, Sri Lanka vice-captain Dinesh Chandimal “swept right on to the back of Kaushal’s head. He did take evasive action, but still the ball hit him”. The website said Silva was wearing a helmet with additional padding, a design introduced for player safety after the death of Australia batsman Phillip Hughes after being struck by a ball on the head in November 2014. Yesterday’s match was part of Sri Lanka’s preparations for its tour of England next month, with the first of three Tests starting at Headingley on May 19.
PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): Recently sacked Trinidad and Tobago head coach, Stephen Hart, says the national programme is badly in need of an administrative upgrade and believes any success the national side achieves will be as a result of “luck”. In his parting shots after being fired last week, the 56-year-old pointed to several areas in the programme which he said needed a more professional approach. “I think Trinidad football needs to become way more professional in everything that surrounds the team – from a scientific point of view, from a travel point of view, from a logistics point of view, and just basic planning and funding,” Hart told C Sports Live. Hart led T&T for 31/2 years, but his tenure ended after the side lost both their opening games of the final round of CONCACAF qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup earlier this month. They opened their campaign with a 2-0 defeat to Costa Rica at the Hasely Crawford Stadium here before losing 3-1 to Honduras at the Estadio Olimpico Metropolitano in San Pedro Sula a few days later on November 15. The results left them one from bottom of the six-team group but Hart said he had been confident T&T could turn around their form. “They (football association) were not happy with the two World Cup results, and even though I had confidence that the players on this team, and with the injection of maybe a few new players, … had the capability to turn it around, the association did not see it that way.” Hart enjoyed several high points during his time in charge of T&T. He twice led them to the quarter-finals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup and also guided them into the final of the 2014 Caribbean Cup before losing to Jamaica. Under Hart, T&T enjoyed a good run in the recent semi-finals of the World Cup qualifiers when they lost just once in finishing second in Group C to United States, in progressing to the final round.

Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson ESPN, TV5 join forces for rebranded ‘ESPN 5’ After getting to Game 7 of the World Series a year ago, the Indians set out to win it all in 2017. This was supposed to be their year.Instead, it’s just another heartbreaker for a Cleveland team that appeared unstoppable and had Kluber on the mound at home for the biggest game this season.“It’s disappointing,” manager Terry Francona said. “We felt good about ourselves. We came down the stretch playing very good baseball, and we did some things in this series that I don’t think were characteristic of our team. We made some errors, kicked the ball around a little bit.“Sometimes you don’t swing the bat. That’s part of it. But we made it harder to win in some cases, especially the last two games.”But the presumptive Cy Young Award winner wasn’t himself in two starts, posting a 12.79 ERA and looking ordinary. Following Game 5, Francona hinted that Kluber may have been bothered by a back injury — and other health issues — that put him on the disabled list earlier this season.ADVERTISEMENT Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny MOST READ Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours “I don’t think we need to get into details of that,” Kluber said when asked about the injury. “I was healthy enough to go out there and try to pitch. I don’t think anybody is 100 percent at this point of the year, but good enough to go out there and try to compete.”Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius homered twice off Kluber in the first three innings, staking the Yankees to a 3-0 lead.“I made two mistakes to Didi,” Kluber said. “He’s a good hitter and he hit two home runs. I felt like I threw the ball better than I did the other day, but ultimately it wasn’t good enough.”When they left for New York on Friday with a 2-0 lead, the Indians seemed to be in the driver’s seat.But a team that won 22 straight games — the longest streak in AL history — couldn’t prevent its first three-game losing streak since July 30 to Aug. 1.Outfielder Jay Bruce, who was so clutch after coming over in an August trade from the New York Mets, was stunned by the Indians’ unexpected slide.“It’s a missed opportunity for us,” said Bruce, eligible for free agency this winter. “I’m still very proud of the way we played this year, but obviously it doesn’t mean much when you get to the postseason and can’t do the job.“I don’t have any explanation for it. I don’t know if there’s an exact science for closing out a series. We couldn’t get it done. We got beat. They played better. That’s the bottom line.”Jason Kipnis, who moved from second base to center field late in the season, was having trouble accepting Cleveland’s fate.“They deserved to win, but I’m not going to tell you the better team is going on,” he said. “I still think we’re the better team, but they played better than we did the last three games.“When you have that good of a season, over 100 wins, it makes it that more disheartening when you don’t finish the job. Everyone in here knows we had higher hopes than this, but that’s baseball. This game is tough.
