MELBOURNE, Australia (CMC):West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo will require surgery on his injured hamstring, ruling him out of the remainder of Melbourne Renegades’ campaign in the Big Bash League here.The 33-year-old fell awkwardly as he attempted to field a delivery on the boundary during Thursday’s clash with Perth Scorchers at the Etihad Stadium, and lay on the ground afterwards clutching his left hamstring.Scans yesterday revealed a serious injury, with doctors recommending surgery.”Unfortunately, my Big Bash season is over, which is very disappointing,” Trinidadian Bravo said.”I’ll now have surgery and the rehabilitation to get me fit and playing at my best again. I want to thank all the Renegades fans for their support for me and I hope to see them again next season.”Bravo’s injury comes as a huge blow for Renegades, who were banking on his experience to propel them in the tournament. He played only two games, scoring 24 and 23 and taking two wickets.However, his 344 Twenty20s meant he was the franchise’s most experienced player, and they are likely to struggle in finding a suitable replacement.”It’s a huge blow. He’s one of the best all-rounders in the world,” Renegades captain Aaron Finch said.DAMAGING BLOW”It’s an unbelievably damaging blow for us, but also for him because we know how much he loves coming out here.”Veteran left-arm spinner Brad Hogg said it was now important that the remainder of the squad pulled their weight.”At the end of the day, you do lose players throughout the tournament. We’ve lost James Pattinson for the first couple of games, and that’s a big loss,” Hogg noted.”And that’s where the other guys have got to step up and play their roles. If you’re going to win the Big Bash, you’re going to require all 18 of the squad.”Bravo is the second West Indies player to be struck down by injury after women’s star Deandra Dottin suffered multiple fractures of her cheekbone in an on-field collision with Brisbane Heat teammate Laura Harris earlier this week.

Liberian track & field athletes in action and target at least three gold medals–Departs for Freetown, KendemaAt least four gold medals have been eyed by the Liberia’s Lone Star Track & Field Team in the Sierra Leone 2018 Traditional Boxing Day activities scheduled for December 23 – 26, 2018 in Freetown as well as the Kendema Mayor’s Marathon and Track & Field Tournament from December 30, 2018 – January 1, 2019 in Kendema, Sierra Leone.Head coach Samuel Cooper said ‘Team Liberia’ has upped her motivation and determination to increase the substance of medals to demonstrate further that the country is not a ‘mere participant’ which has been for the past four years.Athletes pose for photo after trainingA 20-person delegation, comprising 15 athletes, is expected to depart the country early today, hopefully by 6:00 a.m., for a one-day road trip to Freetown, Sierra Leone to participate in two competitions in Freetown and Kendema respectively.Coach Cooper told the Daily Observer yesterday via mobile phone that the Liberian athletes will participate in at least nine events; 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, 5000m, Long Jump, High Jump, and Shot Put.The athletes are Nancy Saah ( 100m/200m/Long Jump); Otricia Borkuah (High Jump/100m); Philip Lademo (400m); Andrew Kpehe (1500m/ 5000m); and Marcox Sackie (800m); Charles Gbelia (100m/200m/ Shot Put); Lydia Gbar (800m/ 15000m); and Harris Melemore (5000m).Other athletes include Abraham Davis (400m); Tonita Dahn (100m/200m); Tracy Chayee (100m/200m); Emmanuel Kartus (100m/Long Jump); Edwin Derkiah (100m/200m); Cornelius Pennoh (Long Jump) and J. Rick U-Fayee (100m/200m).The technical team comprises Coaches Samuel Cooper, Bill Sheriff, Samuel Kiazolu, Ernest Zeigler and medic Abraham Harris.It may be recalled in the 2016 Boxing Day activities, the first post Ebola Boxing Day program, Liberia snatched five medals – one gold, two silvers and two bronce. Mr. Anis Faraj (aka Butterfly) won the lone gold medal in the 1500m.Also in the 2017, Liberia grabbed four medals in both male and female categories; namely two silver medals in the male edition 1500m and 5000m respectively and two bronze medals in female events, shot put and long jump .Coach Cooper told the Daily Observer that ‘Team Liberia’ will be more zealous in Freetown as compared to what occurred during the U-20 ECOWAS Games in Accra, wherein Liberia got two medals amongst at least 350 athletes from 14 countries.Liberia’s male shot put got Silver Medal, while female shot put won a Bronze Medal.However, because of the comparative competition in which Liberia won medals, the Government of Liberia, through the Ministry of Youth and Sports has congratulated ‘Athletic Team Liberia’ for representing the country and clenching two medals in the U-20 ECOWAS Athletics Championship.Youth and Sports Minister D. Zoegar Wilson and Assistant Minister for Sport James Toe in separate remarks, extended their “thanks and appreciation” to the team.The Ministers made the statements when the LAF formally presented ‘Athletic Team Liberia’ and the ‘Medals.’Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) is in the process of relocating its office in Bartica to a more full-fledged location within the town, since it aims to improve the standards of taxpayers’ service and by extension, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni).Commissioner General of GRA, Godfrey Statia and team in discussion with Region Seven REO, Roderick Edinboro along with staffThe GRA’s Commissioner General, Godfrey Statia, lead a group of tax officials on Thursday last to the site which is the proposed new location for the tax office at Fifth Avenue, Bartica. This is where the Authority intends to begin its operations officially as from November this year, and in addition, the new location will also include among other things, living quarters for some senior staff, allowing them to have less rental rates and other related expenses.This move is in keeping with the agenda of strengthening tax compliance and enforcement activities countrywide, beginning with improvements of the existing Integrated Regional Tax Offices (IRTOs), together with the soon-to-be functional Mabaruma office. Existing IRTOs are located at Anna Regina, Essequibo Coast, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam); Parika, East Bank Essequibo, Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara); New Amsterdam and Corriverton, in Berbice, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne); Bartica; Region Seven; Lethem, in Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo); and Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice).An initial assessment was done at the aforementioned locations and from this, it was determined that despite earlier efforts to provide a one-stop-shop at these sites, improvements were necessary in terms of a more enabling environment for staff and building capacity for the benefit of taxpayers who would otherwise have to travel to Georgetown for some services. It was also discovered that in order to be effective, regional offices must not only be equipped to offer complete taxpayer services but also be able to conduct audits and investigations in relation to economic activities by individual and corporate taxpayers in the said localities.The GRA is of the view that this resourcefulness is very timely, in light of the attainment of Bartica’s township status back in 2016, and the continued anticipated growth in economic activities and revenue flows. The Bartica IRTO is currently located at First Avenue, where it had commenced operations in 2007 before it was declared an IRTO under the Integrated Regional Offices initiative in 2008.Several meetings were held by the GRA’s team together with the Regional Executive Officer (REO), Roderick Edinboro, in which plans and strategies were outlined for the region. Additionally, a new office will be commissioned by the GRA in Mabaruma, Region One within a few months, which is the first of its kind in the region.
