KOLKATA, India (CMC):In the space of just four deliveries on Sunday, West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite banished bitter memories that had haunted him for the last five years.Playing in his Twenty20 International debut against Bangladesh in Dhaka back in October 2011, a 23-year-old Brathwaite conceded 14 runs off the penultimate over with the hosts needing 22 off the two last overs, in pursuit of 133.With eight runs left off the final over, Bangladesh got home off the fifth delivery, to deal West Indies a three-wicket defeat and claim victory in the one-off T20 game.DEBUT IN BANGLADESH”I remember my debut in Bangladesh when I didn’t come through for the team and we lost and I made it my business to say Carlos Brathwaite will develop to be a match-winner.”Brathwaite became an instant hero at Eden Gardens as he blasted West Indies to a four-wicket win and to the capture of the 2016 Twenty20 World Cup.With the Windies needing 19 off the last six balls, Brathwaite clattered sixes off the first four deliveries in a stunning finish.”It’s better than a dream. Initially, the plan was just to get bat on ball and run as hard as possible. We knew we couldn’t waste any balls and that was just the first plan,” Brathwaite said afterwards.”Fortunately, I got the first couple of away, that kind of settled the nerves a bit. Then after the third one I knew that all I had to do was get bat on ball on the fourth one and we were world champions. Fortunately, all four went for sixes and here we are, world champions, a treble for West Indies cricket.”Brathwaite finished on 34 not out off 10 deliveries, in an exhilarating 54-run stand with Man-of-the-Match Marlon Samuels, who was unbeaten on 85 off 66 balls at the end.”It’s one of those out-of-body experiences. As a young man you dream of winning a World Cup – probably just winning a game – and to be able to do it among all these legends in T20 cricket, to be able to do it for the people of the Caribbean (is special).” he explained.Brathwaite had earlier contributed with the ball, taking three for 23 as West Indies restricted England to 155 for nine off their 20 overs.
Senators entering the Chambers of the Senate on Tuesday for the plenary of the 20th day sitting were greeted by scores of toddlers, kindergarten and pre-school kids of the Quality Foundation School from the ELWA Community.The kids, according to their handlers, out of curiosity had written the lawmakers through the Secretary of the Senate to allow them visit the Senators during session and observe their proceedings.The handlers said the kids’ desire was based on the fact that they wanted to see firsthand how the Senators debate issues leading to the crafting of some of the laws.The headmistress of Quality Foundation told the Senators that the children, even at such a young age, are being taught basic issues about the Constitution, as demonstrated by their enthusiasm while singing two stanzas of the “Lone Star Forever”. This was followed by their school’s ode, which spells out that Quality Foundation produces quality education. She said the school is living up to its name by ensuring that although they are just children, they will be molded with a solid foundation in order to produce the quality of education the country will depend on in the future.Most of the children attending the school, according to the school’s authorities, come from parents living in the ELWA Community, who are mainly marketers.Watching the Legislators on television debating in sessions is said to be one of the factors responsible for the interest created in what happens behind the walls of the Capitol Building. “Some of them are even dreaming of becoming lawmakers one day,” the headmistress told the Senate.Welcoming the children and their handlers, Senate Pro Tempore Gbehzohngar M. Findley assured them that the building was their property and that lawmakers were more or less caretakers.“One day you are going to wear the shoes we are wearing today, but you have to continue to be serious in your lessons, disciplined, respectful to those who impart knowledge to you, and above all honest,” Pro Tempore admonished the little girls and boys.On behalf of the Senate, Pro Tempore Findley presented an amount of US$50 as transportation for their unusual, but welcomed visitors.But the biggest surprise for the visitors came from the Senate Chairman on Public Corporations and co-chair on Autonomous Commission and Agencies, Senator Alphonso Gaye, who “on behalf of the people of Grand Gedeh County”, presented an amount of US$500 as “transportation.”Senator Gaye amidst laughter from his colleagues, told the gathering that Senators who are fathers and mothers will always be willing and prepared to identify with children who demonstrate that they can be counted upon to represent their people when the time comes.The visit ended with the Senators taking a photograph with the children on the floor of the Senate chamber.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
