Dominik Samuels: playing cricket with passion and success – Campion College all-rounder sets sights on West Indies team

first_img The highest level Strong youth programme “They have a pretty strong youth programme in Barbados and I must say it’s better than in Jamaica,” Samuels added. Dominik was captain of his prep school team in Barbados and when he moved to Jamaica at age 11, also captain Sts Peter and Paul Prep School team for one year, before moving on to Campion College. “It was a good experience because their structure is a bit different. They play hard ball and being a part of the training squad – because the boys were two or three years older – helped me. I’ve played not only local players there, but also from England and visiting teams,” Samuels said. Samuels has been outstanding in the Grace Shield, scoring 782 runs this season. The batting all rounder also scored four centuries, with a top score of 136 not out against St George’s College and three half centuries. He helped Campion reach the semi-finals of the Grace Shield and led them to the title last season. For Samuels, it isn’t only about playing sport. The Jamaica and West Indies youth representative believes in balancing academics as well. Having earned a government scholarship to Campion, he has been on the school’s honour roll every year since. Now in the fifth form, he will do nine subjects at the Caribbean Examinations Council level later this year. SOME might say that cricket is a dying sport in Jamaica. But 16-year-old Dominik Samuels does not appear to be one who believes that. The Campion College Grace Shield team member has been playing cricket since he was four years old and in 12 years of playing at the prep and high school levels, his passion for the sport has never waned. While his father Raymond played Headley Cup cricket as a student of York Castle High, it was while still a young boy living in Barbados that Dominik’s love for the game really developed. “I influenced him, but I think the turning point for him was when I was on vacation and we were in St Ann and his cousin who was a couple of years older played cricket and he saw his cousin playing. We lived in the Bahamas, he started playing, but they don’t really play cricket in the Bahamas so there was no opportunity. I relocated to Barbados and at age five he really got to play cricket because they have a really strong prep school competition there,” the elder Samuels explained. While there, he also played for Wanderers Cricket Club and got the opportunity to play in camps with older and more experienced boys. “I’m certainly looking to play for the West Indies in the future, to play at the highest level of cricket. But I still want to balance my cricket and academics as well,” he said. “It’s a matter of time management really. I have to make timetables and understand that if I want to be successful I know how much work I have to put out so I can train in the evening,” he added. Having the strong support of both his parents who attend his games also helps, he said. As for the future, he wants to attend a school in the United Kingdom, where he can continue to pursue his cricketing goals. “Cricket is a game where you have to be disciplined and patient and you have to understand that things take time and you have to be diligent in what you do and cricket also taught me that when you fight out of tough situations you always come out with good results,” he said.last_img read more

Ruddock knocked out in Canada heavyweight bout

first_imgJamaican Donovan ‘Razor’ Ruddock had his dream of once more becoming the Canadian heavyweight boxing champion, at age 51, dashed to pieces on Friday night when he was knocked out at two minutes and five seconds of the third round in Toronto, Canada, by current champion Dillon Carman.Ruddock, who was the Canadian champion in 2001 when he walked away from the ring without formally retiring, tried to turn back the clock and had two successful outings in March and May this year. This, in addition to his former impressive record and world rating, obviously were the reasons he was given the opportunity to challenge Carman.The dream did not come true, however, as after two tentative rounds, in which both boxers did very little, Carman exploded in round three and floored Ruddock twice. He beat the count the first time, but was knocked out cold on the second occasion and laid flat on his back for several seconds before being revived.He has had a great career and is now 40-6-1, while Carman, who is 29, won the title on October 2, 2014, and has a 9-2 record.The consensus after the fight is that he should now formally retire and not put himself at risk.- Leroy Brownlast_img read more

The BCCI also suspended bilateral relations with the WICB. Following the October meeting between Cameron, Muirhead, and BCCI officials, the WICB said it hoped for an amicable resolution, especially with the BCCI set to meet in the AGM. “We had discussions on the resolution of the impasse that currently exists. It was very cordial,” ESPN Cricinfo quoted Muirhead as saying recently. “We discussed everything that would affect us at length.

We will decide at the appropriate time,” Manohar said. “They met us recently … the CEO of the West Indies Board and the chairman of the West Indies Board. They have given their viewpoint. We will take a call.” WICB president Dave Cameron, along with chief executive Michael Muirhead, recently met with BCCI officials to discuss a resolution to the dispute which arose in October last year when the West Indies one-day team abruptly abandoned the tour of India over a contracts squabble with players union WIPA.last_img read more
