West Indies head coach Phil Simmons has said having more seniors in the T20 side compared to the Test squad is a good feeling as it makes things easy for him for the two upcoming T20Is against India in Lauderhill, Florida. As opposed to the inexperienced Test side that lost 2-0 to India, their T20 squad features Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, Sunil Narine, Andre Russell and Kieron Pollard among other specialist T20 players. They will also play under the new captain Carlos Brathwaite after Darren Sammy was dropped from the side.Its good to have all the senior guys back and they make things easy for me because its a case of them doing all the work and they know this format inside out, Simmons said on Thursday in Lauderhill. So it gives me a chance to just enjoy them freeing themselves out there.Simmons also said being the T20 champions helped the sides confidence, comparing them with the 1980s Test side, which dominated the longer format for years.In this context, I think its a case where we are world champions and its something we have made our own, similar to back in the 80s when we made Test cricket our own. We always had the team to beat in T20 cricket so from that point of view weve got a lot better and all the guys are loving playing it. But its a stepping-stone to one-day cricket too.Brathwaite has played only eight T20Is so far and played only the first of the four Tests against India, scoring 0 and an unbeaten 51. While he had recently said the T20 players were mature enough to handle a change in leadership, Simmons said the objective of the new captain and the entire side would be to build on the World T20 win in India.I think his (Brathwaites) main mindset is that we have to continue where Sammy left us and the good work that Sammy did in this position, Simmons said. I think thats the mindset of all players that we have to continue the work we did in the [T20] World Cup and before that.Even though their T20 squad is vastly different from the Test side, Simmons said there would be an easy transition in the dressing room because the T20 side has broadly remained the same since the World T20, which they won without Narine and Pollard.Yeah, it could be a bit different but I think theres only three players here who played in that [Test] series, Simmons explained. So it is not that much of a transition because the three players know how to play this and one of them was the best player in the World Cup, you know, batting wise. I think we are easy with that transition.We still prepare for the two days here the same way we would have prepared before. Its just that the Indian team has been together for longer but we are over here preparing and we will do that over the next two days.Simmons also emphasised on the kind of impact players like Russell and Narine could make in the shortest format. Russell recently struck a 44-ball 100 packed with 11 sixes and played a crucial role, along with Gayle, in taking Jamaica Tallawahs to their second CPL title. Narine took 14 wickets in the CPL with an economy rate of 5.55, and also finished as the second-highest wicket-taker in the tri-series against South Africa and Australia in June.I dont think theres much to be said about Andre, Simmons said. From what hes on the pitch, he just gives everything over there and hes always going to be our main player for us. Once he starts, with either bat or ball, we are in a position of winning.I havent seen the surface properly yet but Narine played here for Trinidad & Tobago in the CPL and he has done well and adapted well. So Id like the same from him.Their squad will also be bolstered by Johnson Charles, the second-highest run-scorer in the CPL, Andre Fletcher, Lendl Simmons and legspinner Samuel Badree, the No. 1 ranked bowler in T20Is, who had injured himself in the World T20 final. Simmons stated that beating India in T20s, just like they had done in the World T20 semi-final in Mumbai, was going to be a bigger motivation than their T20 ranking, which is third currently behind New Zealand and India.It (ranking) is motivation but I think, as in Mumbai, just to beat India because thats always going to be the team to beat in T20 cricket because theyve commanded the format for a long period. So winning against India is always going to be high on the agenda. Where we get after that, we are happy at that.The only thing that we are doing is that we will prepare as best as we can because India is going to be coming looking for revenge for the semi-final loss and we have to make sure that we are ready for whatever they bring to us.Simmons was also asked about the recent discussions the WICB held with the players during the WICB/WIPA Players Symposium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and he barely commented on that, but sounded more excited about the coming matches at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium in Lauderhill.I was there, and Im happy that discussions were held, he said. Its not about holding discussions; its about where you go from there. Lets see where it takes us.This is an awesome stadium, awesome! Looking at the CPL, the wicket seemed to be very good too. So if the wicket is as good as it was in CPL in a stadium like this, we are in for a treat over the weekend. Cheap Jerseys Authentic .

Michell Burger, a woman who lives on an estate next to Pistorius gated community, said she and her husband were awoken by the screams in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14 last year, when Pistorius killed Reeva Steenkamp by shooting four times through a door in his bathroom. When a team like the Philadelphia Flyers is on a remarkable nine-game winning streak, its a no-brainer that it will move up in the rankings. The same can be said for the Minnesota Wild and Calgary Flames, who are enjoying winning streaks of four and six games, respectively. Still, it takes more than that to dethrone the top two teams. Once again, the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens switch places atop our rankings, with the Flyers shooting up to third.Were also seeing some individual performances boost the St. Louis Blues, Minnesota Wild and Boston Bruins.The bottom of the barrel has minimal change, with the Vancouver Canucks, Arizona Coyotes and Colorado Avalanche still looking up at the rest of the league.1. (Last week 2) New York Rangers, 20-9-1Coach Alain Vigneault has gone with the hot hand in net, and now the Rangers have a goalie controversy brewing.?Antti Raanta?went 3-0, forcing?Henrik Lundqvist?to the sidelines as a healthy backup for three games for the first time in three years.2. (1) Montreal Canadiens, 19-6-3With forwards Alex Galchenyuk and David Desharnais both sidelined with knee injuries, many thought the Canadiens would struggle offensively. Instead, Montreal scored 10 goals against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday, led by captain Max Pacioretty (four goals and one assist) and?Tomas Plekanec?(a career-high four assists in the win).3. (10) Philadelphia Flyers, 18-10-3The Flyers extended their winning streak to nine games by getting lots of goals from their scorers, good defense from the blueliners and strong goaltending. And all of this without defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, who is?day-to-day with an upper-body injury.4. (4) Pittsburgh Penguins, 18-7-3The Penguins are on a winning streak (five games) of their own. Captain Sidney Crosby has six goals and six assists for 12 points in his past seven games and leads the league with 20 goals. He and the Pens have four games this week, against the Coyotes, Bruins, Kings and Maple Leafs.5. (6) Columbus Blue Jackets, 17-5-4Columbus confidence is high, as the Blue Jackets have gone 7-0-1 in their past eight games. It also helps that goalie Sergei Bobrovsky is 6-0-1 in his past seven games, including five consecutive wins and a 1.56 goals-against average during that stretch.6. (3) Chicago Blackhawks, 18-8-4Captain?Jonathan Toews?skated on Sunday for the first time in a week, but the Blackhawks arent rushing his return from an upper-body injury. Backup goalie?Scott Darlings shutout streak was snapped at 125:39, but he has been outstanding in relief of Corey Crawford (out since his appendectomy).?7. (7) Washington Capitals, 17-7-3Coach Barry Trotz has criticized?Alex Ovechkin?for being penalized too often this season, and No. 8 has heeded his advice. After a seven-game goal drought, the Caps captain scored his 13th goal of the season -- and 200th career power-play tally, making him the 18th player in history to reach the milestone -- on Sunday.?8.? (11) St. Louis Blues, 16-9-4No rest for the weary. Goalie Jake Allen started his third game in four nights and his fourth game in six nights on Sunday against the Wild. At least hes getting help on the other end from forward Vladimir Tarasenko,?who has points in 14 of his past 18 games (10 goals and 13 assists).9. (8) San Jose Sharks, 16-11-1Forward Logan Couture is heating up and has seven goals in his past 10 games. Overall, he has 11 goals and eight assists for 19 points in 28 games.10.?(14) Minnesota Wild, 15-8-4The Wild have won four in a row and enter Mondays action in third place in the Central Division, thanks in large part to goalie Devan Dubnyk, who?leads the league with a 1.66 goals-against average, a .946 shooting percentage and four shutouts. Head coach Bruce Boudreau has done a terrific job in Minnesota, and his addition of former NHL defenseman Scott Stevens to run the defense has paid big dividends.11. (5) Ottawa Senators, 16-11-2The Senators need to fix their penalty-killing unit -- soon. Ottawa allowed three power-play goals for the third time this season, and the second time in as many games, during Sundays 5-1 loss to the Ducks. The Senators will miss defenseman Mark Borowiecki, who was suspended two games for his boarding penalty against Kings forward Tyler Toffoli on Saturday.12.? (12) Edmonton Oilers, 15-11-5I have no issue with captain Connor McDavid calling Flyers Brandon Manning classless after a game last week. Whether hes correct that Manning hurt him on purpose last season, its good to see McDavid ?-- who leads the league in points -- showing emotion.?13.? (15) Boston Bruins, 15-12-2David Pastrnak has been a dynamic player and the teams best forward. He has 18 goals in 24 games and is trying to become the first Bruin to score 20 goals in fewer than 25 games since Cam Neely netted his 20th goal in his 19th game during the 1993-94 season.14.? (17) Calgary Flames, 16-13-2Defenseman Dougie Haamilton had his third multigoal game, and second of the season, to help Calgary to a 6-2 win over the Jets on Saturday.dddddddddddd. The Flames have won six consecutive games, and Hamilton has played well since Brian Burke, Calgarys president of hockey operations, debunked trade rumors. On the offensive end, forward Sean Monahan has four goals and five assists for nine points during the teams winning streak.15.? (19) Anaheim Ducks, 15-9-5The Ducks have won three games behind the performances of Corey Perry and Ryan Kesler, both of whom extended their respective points streaks to five games. Perry has two goals and five assists for seven points, while Kesler has four goals and three for seven points during the streak.16.?(13) Los Angeles Kings, 14-11-2Forward Anze Kopitar has five assists in his past four games but hasnt scored since Oct. 25, a span of 16 games. Overall, he only has 14 points in 22 games this season. Meanwhile, Jeff Carter leads the Kings with 21 points. And Carter?scored the winning goal in four games during the teams recent five-game winning streak.17.?(9) Tampa Bay Lightning, 14-13-2Forward Nikita Kucherov has not gone more than two consecutive games this season without recording a point. He had an assist during Saturdays 4-3 loss to the Penguins. He now has 13 goals and 17 assists for 30 points in 29 games.18. (16) Winnipeg Jets, 13-16-3Defenseman Dustin Byfuglien has one goal and six assists for seven points in his past eight games. Teammate Mark Scheifele has 14 goals and 14 assists for 28 points in 29 games.19.?(18) Nashville Predators, 12-11-4Forward Mike Ribeiro is producing consistently of late, posting two goals and nine assists for 11 points in his past 12 games.20.? (20) New Jersey Devils, 12-10-6The Devils have dropped three straight, but you cant put all the blame on goalie Cory Schneider. He has allowed three or more goals in his past six losses, but its a result of the play in front of him. Thats why New Jersey is scrambling.21.?(21) Florida Panthers, 13-12-4Goalie Roberto Luongo made 37 saves as the Panthers snapped a four-game losing skid with a 4-2 win over the Canucks on Saturday. Florida is 1-2-2 in its past five. Luongo has 446 career wins and is one shy of tying Terry Sawchuk for fifth all-time. Meanwhile, the ageless?Jaromir Jagr is four points shy of tying Mark Messier for second place all-time with 1,887 points.22. (26) Detroit Red Wings, 13-12-4It can be difficult to defend Dylan Larkin when hes using his ridiculous speed, and thats exactly what he has been doing lately, dashing by defenders to score four goals in his past nine games. Veteran forward Frans Nielsen is clearly enjoying his first season in Detroit. He has three goals and five assists for eight points in his past nine games.23. (23) Carolina Hurricanes, 11-11-6Defenseman Noah Hanifin has recorded an even-or-better plus/minus in 16 consecutive games. As a rookie last season, he had 14 consecutive games with a similar stretch.24.?(22) Dallas Stars, 11-13-6Defenseman Jamie Oleksiak was suspended for two games for an illegal check to the head of the Flyers Chris VandeVelde on Saturday, which will slow an already-struggling D.25.? (24) Toronto Maple Leafs, 11-11-5Goalie Antoine Bibeau made his NHL debut and finished with 26 saves in Sundays 3-1 loss to the Avalanche. Leafs rookie Auston Matthews has six goals in his past eight games.26.?(25) Buffalo Sabres, 10-11-6The Sabres have lost three of their past four games. Since Jack Eichel returned, Buffalo is 3-2-1. But inconsistency continues to plague the Sabres, and their special teams need to improve.?27.? (30) New York Islanders, 11-11-5Captain John Tavares has three goals and two assists for five points to extend his point streak to five games. The Islanders are 5-1-1 in their past seven games and will face the Capitals and Blackhawks next.28.?(27) Vancouver Canucks, 12-15-2Forward Bo Horvat is second on the team with eight goals and hes third in points, with 16. He has also been solid at the faceoff dot.29.?(28) Arizona Coyotes, 9-13-5Brendan Perlini scored his first career NHL goal in only his fourth game to help the Coyotes snap a six-game losing skid by beating the Predators 4-1 on Saturday. The Coyotes Alex Goligoski is one of six NHL defensemen to have at least 10 assists, 50 blocked shots and 30 hits, joining the Blue Jackets Erik Johnson, the Canadiens Shea Weber, the Ducks Sami Vatanen, the Jets?Dustin Byfuglien?and the Flyers Ivan Provorov.30.? (29) Colorado Avalanche, 11-15-1The Avalanche have been battling inconsistency all season. Goalie Semyon Varlamov made 51 saves en route to a 3-1 win over the Maple Leafs on Sunday. On Saturday, the Canadiens blasted Colorado 10-1. It was Avalanche veteran forward Jarome Iginlas 1,500th NHL game.
