The Noble Don Taylor drillship started drilling the Redtail exploration well, which is 1.25 miles northwest of Yellowtail-1, in July. “Our Stabroek Block exploration program continues to identify high-quality reservoirs in close proximity to previous discoveries, establishing efficient opportunities for new projects in Guyana”, said Mike Cousins, senior vice president of exploration and new ventures at ExxonMobil. A third production vessel for the Payara development, with a production capacity of 220,000 barrels a day, is on hold pending government approval. “Developing these projects remains an integral part of ExxonMobil and our co-venturers’ long-term growth plans and a source of significant value for Guyana”.

Steve Smith and David Warner are expected to be back in late March. World Cup is scheduled to begin on May 30 in England. Warne, in his day, too served a year-long suspension in 2003. Interestingly, Warne was suspended in 2003 for a year after testing positive to banned diuretic drugs. Many wrote him off, but the leg-spinning legend quickly bounced back and enjoyed several more years playing at the highest level with the Australian team.”Sometimes having an enforced lay off — like I’m used to, I had 12 months off myself — what that means is you become really fresh. You freshen your mind up, you become hungry again and realise how important cricket is to you.”Warne said both players would also “have a point to prove” when they eventually pad up again.”That’s why I reckon Australia can win the World Cup,” he said, despite the team’s recent patchy one-day form. They’ll walk straight back in, they’ll be hungry. They’ll be a bit nervous in the first few games but that’ll be good for them, they’ll be excited and I would expect them to play as good as they always have,” Warne concluded. New Delhi: Steve Smith and David Warner are currently serving a year-long suspension after sandpaper incident happened against South Africa in early 2018. Post this, the duo has had a hard time facing criticism. The star pair’s ban from state and international cricket for ball-tampering expires later this month and they are expected to be rushed back into the Australian side for the defence of their title at the showpiece tournament in England this year.Unfortunately, both Steve Smith and David Warner suffered an elbow injury in the recently concluded Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) which may elongate their return to the International circuit. However, Steve Smith and David Warner have already started to hit a few balls in the nets. With this, Warne went onto praise duo’s ability to be back in the scheme of things as soon as they finish their suspension period and has no doubt they will be as good as ever, benefiting from the break rather than their skills being blunted. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, (CMC) – Legendary former West Indies captain, Sir Vivian Richards, has endorsed Kieron Pollard’s appointment as white-ball skipper and believes “politics with the last regime” prevented the Trinidadian from assuming the position sooner.The 32-year-old Pollard was elevated to the position last month and next week leaves the Caribbean with the Windies for his first challenge, when they take on dangerous Afghanistan in India from November 5-18 in three One-Day Internationals and three Twenty20s.“I’ve always felt he should have been [appointed] a bit earlier,” the 67-year-old Sir Vivian who never lost a Test series as captain, told the Line and Length cricket podcast.“I guess the politics with the last regime and the things that obviously went down in India, and some of these guys in my opinion were blacklisted from playing the role that they should and helping to move the team forward, and I think because of those political issues, it didn’t quite help the progress.”nPollard replaced all-rounder Jason Holder as one-day captain and all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite at the helm of the T20 squad, and was part of a major overhaul of the management of the men’s side with fellow Trinidadian Phil Simmons named as head coach for the second time in four years.An aggressive lower order batsman who has specialised in the T20 format, Pollard will bring plenty experience to the role having led Barbados Tridents for five years during the Caribbean Premier League, and overseen their capture of the title in 2014.He also led St Lucia Stars last season and this year took over as captain of his native Trinbago Knight Riders after injury ruled all-rounder Dwayne Bravo out of the entire campaign.Sir Viv said he had identified the leadership qualities in Pollard from as early as 2013, when he saw him in the inaugural CPL season.“When I first saw him in the first CPL tournament we had in the region, he was in my opinion the best captain, no disrespect to Carlos and [people] like that,” Sir Viv said.“Carlos is a very highly competitive individual and would have won us a World Cup off his bat but he was put in that position for political reasons and I think he would understand that as well because I think he is very sensible and knowledgeable. “So I have no issues with Kieron Pollard. I believe he brings inventiveness and is proactive more than anything else which I think can help at times.”Only recently, Pollard indicated he would not tolerate insularity in selection during his tenure and Sir Viv said he was in full agreement with the new captain’s position.“I’ve always been of the feeling that you try and pick the best team that you see regardless of where the individuals may come from, the best team that you see possible that can represent you,” Sir Viv stressed.“That’s the way I’ve always looked at it. The insularity factor in my opinion was null and void.”

D’Tigers’ Vincent Nnamdi is not losing sleep over the final 12-man roster for the 2019 FIBA Men’s World Cup in China as Nigerians wait with bated breath.With the competition becoming so stiff amongst the players in camp, the shooting guard said the pressure is definitely on the coaching crew led by Alex Nwora rather than the players.Vincent who plies his trade with NBA franchise, Stockton Kings, hinted that the boys in camp are fully focused on the task ahead of their first game on Saturday against Russia. “I don’t think there is any pressure. I think the biggest pressure is on the coaching crew to take that decision. Like I said, we have a lot of great talent, great athletes here so it will be a tough decision for them to make.”On the team’s chances in China, Vincent who scored 23 points including the game-winning 3-pointer against Poland on Saturday during the Peak Invitational Tournament expressed confidence that the team can go all out to win the World Cup.“I think the sky is the limit for us. I think we can go as far as going to win the championship. We have lot of talents, skill, size and I think we are very capable of doing it.”He lauded the NBBF for the Grade A friendlies which have in no small way contributed to their level of preparation.Nnamdi explained that playing against fellow world cup bound teams (Dominican Republic, Canada, Iran, Poland and Montenegro) has really helped their confidence.“The first 3 games, we were still getting the team together. It’s good the way we performed and it’s good to always get the win. We definitely have a lot of confidence.”“We have a lot of confidence. We are a confident group and we definitely looking forward to be in China”, Vincent said.He said irrespective of the coaches’ decision, it remains an honour to represent Nigeria“It’s an honour to be here and to be part of this process and represent the nation”.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
