GUYANA and West Indies cricketer, Keemo Paul, recently returned to his homeland in Saxacalli, on a mission to provide basic food and cleaning supplies for the livelihood of villagers.The community, which is located on the west bank of the Essequibo River, some 25 miles south of Parika, has taken it upon themselves to reduce travel to a minimum, in an effort to safeguard themselves from the novel coronavirus, commonly called COVID-19.With boat-service operation and fishing a key part of livelihood, both of which are reduced significantly now, accessing basic amenities has become difficult.The 22-year-old Paul took it upon himself to supply the community with face masks and sanitising products, along with numerous food supplies.

I am not here currently, but I know that being in lockdown will be hard even for communities like these that live off the land. From time to time, we would have to travel to do business for other food supplies and I felt if I can give persons those needs, they will stay home more.”The all-rounder, who would have been in India playing the Indian Premier League had it not been for the pandemic, added “Prevention is better than a cure and I just want to see my family and close friends remain safe.”Keemo further asked for persons to act smart, follow the guidelines of the health authorities, and stay home unless it is necessary to leave home.

(AP Photo/Darko Vojinovic)VOLGOGRAD, Russia — Amid a crescendo of boos and whistles as neither side tried to score, Japan advanced to the knockout round at the World Cup because of a newly implemented tiebreaker — fewer yellow cards.The Japanese, barely playing for the final 15 minutes of the match, lost to Poland 1-0 Thursday. But they still reached the round of 16 because Colombia beat Senegal 1-0 in the other Group H match.ADVERTISEMENT Both Japan and Senegal finished the group phase with four points, had the same goal difference and the same amount of goals scored. Starting at this year’s tournament, disciplinary records — known as fair play — were added by FIFA as a tiebreaker. Japan had four yellow cards in its three group matches while Senegal had six.It’s the first time since 1982 that no African team has advanced from the first round at the World Cup.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownPoland, which had already been eliminated, got its goal from defender Jan Bednarek in the 59th minute.

Colombia, which won the group with six points, will play the second place team in that group on Tuesday in Moscow.Senegal, however, has become the first victim of the new tiebreaker.“I don’t know if the regulation is cruel or not, but I can’t ask my players to go on the pitch in order to avoid yellow cards,” Senegal coach Aliou Cisse said. “You have to be in contact with other players when you play football.

But the Japanese still had more of the chances in the first half.Poland had an early chance to take the lead in the 32nd minute when Japan goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima stopped a header from Kamil Grosicki. Scampering across his goal before diving, Kawashima clawed the ball to safety just before it had crossed the line.Robert Lewandowski then had a chance to put Poland ahead 2-0 — a result that would have allowed Senegal to advance — in the 74th minute after a swift counterattack but his effort flew over the bar.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award View comments
