The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) today announced details of the two play-in matches for the final two berths in the historic Copa America Centenario, to be played in the United States from June 3-26, 2016.
Two matchups – Panama vs. Cuba and Trinidad & Tobago vs. Haiti – will be played as a double header on Friday, January 8 2016, at the Estadio Rommel Fernandez in Panama City, Panama. The winner of each match will advance to the Copa America Centenario. Exact kickoff times will be announced shortly.
CONCACAF will have six representatives in the 2016 Copa America Centenario, hosted in the United States and marking the first time the South American championship has been played outside that continent. CONCACAF Gold Cup champion Mexico, 2013 Gold Cup champion and host United States, reigning Central American Cup champion Costa Rica and Caribbean Cup Champion Jamaica have already secured their places in the event.
The four playoff contenders set to compete in Panama earned their places in the play-in matches by virtue of their performances at the 2015 Gold Cup. Cuba, Haiti, Panama and Trinidad & Tobago were all quarterfinalists. Panama earned the right to host the play-in event as the best finisher of the group, advancing to the semifinals and eventually finishing in third place.
The U.S.-hosted Copa America Centenario was originally announced in May 2014, when it was determined the reigning UNCAF and CFU champion, as well as Mexico and the United States, would represent the CONCACAF region, along with two additional teams to be determined via play in matches after a ranking of the best finishers from the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup. That procedure was confirmed last week, along with the final details of the Copa America Centenario in the United States.

THE TRINIDAD Tobago cricket selectors have announced a 13-man squad for the first two matches of the 2015-2016 West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Premier Cricket League Four-Day Tournament.

The T&T Red Force bowl off their campaign on Friday November 6 against the Leeward Islands at Warner Park in St Kitts; and than tackle Barbados at Kensington Oval in Bridgetown from Friday, November 14.

The team will be captained by allrounder Rayad Emrit and includes two overseas players, Kyle Hope of Barbados and Narsingh Deonarine of Guyana.

Sri Lanka wins 1st ODI

The penalty of bowling a no-ball cost West Indies the first one-day international against Sri Lanka which they lost narrowly by one wicket with seven balls to spare under the D/L method at the R Premadasa Stadium under lights.

Sri Lanka chasing a revised target of 163 went into the penultimate over requiring 11 to win off 12 balls and West Indies who were a bowler short following an injury to Andre Russell were forced to bring on Johnson Charles, a wicket-keeper/batsman who had never bowled in ODI cricket before.

The gamble of using a part time bowler at a crucial point cost West Indies the match as Charles not only started the over bowling a wide but off the fifth ball with Sri Lanka requiring eight to win he bowled a no-ball that cost his side three runs as batsman Ajantha Mendis ran two. Worse still the next ball was a free-hit and Mendis smashed it over deep mid wicket for six to signal a nerve-biting win for Sri Lanka.

Due to bad weather the match was reduced to a 26-over affair and West Indies put into bat first totaled 159-8 courtesy a fine knock of 41 off 24 balls (3 sixes, 3 fours) from Russell and an equally good innings of 36 off 13 balls (3 sixes, 2 fours) from skipper Jason Holder.

Sri Lanka leads the three-match series 1-0. The second game takes place at the same venue on November 4.

Phil Simmons will be reinstated as head coach of the West Indies Cricket team weeks after his suspension, according to a media report.

The report quoted "well-placed sources" within the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) as confirming that Simmons will resume his post as head coach, reports CMC.

The development follows a meeting between Simmons and the WICB Human Resource Committee after his public outburst in which he questioned the make-up of the One-Day International squad.

WICB sources were quoted as saying Simmons was warned about his outburst and was told that comments like those would not be tolerated in the future.
