Australia will play its first league game against Afghanistan. Alex Carey is a part of Australia squad for World Cup 2019. Aaron Finch will lead the side in World Cup 2019. New Delhi: Australia’s wicket-keeper batsman, Alex Carey is set to join Sussex for the T20 Blast after the conclusion of ICC World Cup, it was confirmed on Thursday (May 30). The tournament will start from July 18 and Sussex will play their first game on the next day against Hampshire.Carey said he’s excited to work with Jason Gillespie and is looking forward to playing in front of the home crowd. “I’m very excited to get the opportunity to play with Sussex,” he pointed out.”I played for East Grinstead in the Sussex Premier League a few years ago and now to play for the Sharks in the Blast is super exciting. I’ve heard the fans are the best in the country and I can’t wait to join Dizzy and the guys in July.” Carey has played 44 T20 games and has 918 runs to his name at a strike rate of 128.93 with one century. Gillespie, who is also a coach at Adelaide Strikers where Carey plays in the Big Bash League, stressed the batsman’s ability to adapt will hold him in good stead.”We’re delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to Alex and excited for him to be linking up with us,” he said “He’s been impressive opening the batting for the Strikers in the Big Bash and now he’s getting experience in the middle order with Australia.”He can certainly clear the ropes but he’s also able to read and adapt to different conditions. That versatility will give us options on how best to utilise his batting in this year’s Blast. Alex is also a world-class keeper so to have a player like him joining the Sharks is a real coup for the club. I know Alex well from the Adelaide Strikers and he knows Sussex well from his time playing league cricket in the county, so I’ve no doubt he’ll fit in nicely in our dressing room.” highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
Facebook Twitter Google+ Stanislovaitis stood with tears in her eyes, faced with the reality that her time as a member of the Syracuse volleyball team was over. Even though the Orange missed the playoffs in her final season, it didn’t affect the way Stanislovaitis felt about her time with the team. She felt fortunate to be a part of it all. ‘I think looking back on it, I’ve been given a gift,’ Stanislovaitis On Senior Day, Syracuse’s volleyball season came to an end after a 3-1 loss at the hands of Louisville. Stanislovaitis Hayley Todd and Sarah Hayes didn’t get the chance to go to the playoffs in their final year with the Orange. At times during the year, the thought that this team wouldn’t be making the trip to Pittsburgh for the Big East tournament would have been incomprehensible.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text There were highs and lows. Huge wins and crushing losses. Stretches of nothing but dominance mixed with stretches of struggles. Syracuse beat some of the conference’s best teams and lost to some of the worst. Any player on the team will attribute that to life in the Big East, where anything is possible. ‘I always thought we were going to make it,’ said Hayes, a defensive specialist. ‘It can’t always work. We did everything we could.’ At times, everything was enough. Especially during the Orange’s nonconference schedule, when it piled up victories over teams that never had a chance. During one stretch of the season, the Orange went 10 straight matches without losing a single set. Winning was easy. Each victory was just one step closer to Syracuse making the postseason. There was nothing stopping the Orange as it went through the schedule unchallenged. SU may have been beating teams that weren’t up to its level, but to the Syracuse coaches, that schedule was filled with teams that were far from pushovers. ‘Any given day, if you have a bad day, any of those teams are going to beat you,’ assistant coach Carol LaMarche said. ‘Those were intense games. Any moment, we could’ve lost any of them.’ ‘Any moment’ never came. Syracuse won them all. But those moments did come once the Orange opened up its Big East schedule. Suddenly, SU couldn’t make any mistakes during those matches because opponents would capitalize. And the fact that on any given day Syracuse could lose was true more than ever. Throughout the season, LaMarche said the best team on the court for those two hours during a match is going to win. And that team doesn’t have to have the best record or the best talent. Just the best two hours. Once conference play started, having the best two hours began to be a problem for Syracuse. Winning became increasingly difficult, and losses started to send the Orange to the bottom of the conference standings. ‘We knew we were going to have to perform every weekend in order to push forward to the tournament,’ outsider hitter Todd said. ‘It didn’t exactly go the way we wanted it to.’ Syracuse finished the season with a 5-9 Big East record. Some of the losses during the year made sense. The Orange lost to some of the best conference teams, including Cincinnati, Louisville and Marquette. Other losses didn’t. At the bottom of the conference is DePaul, which beat one Big East team — Syracuse. Through all of that, the highs and the lows, the big wins and the crucial losses, being a part of the team that has the program’s best start to a season isn’t lost on any member of the Orange. Even though the playoffs remained elusive, every player can be proud of the season overall, LaMarche said. That will make it easier to wipe away the tears. ‘It’s a pretty significant start,’ LaMarche said. ‘They can’t forget that. Although we didn’t make it to the Big East (tournament), it’s not a failure.’ firstname.lastname@example.org Published on November 16, 2010 at 12:00 pm Contact Chris: email@example.com | @chris_iseman Comments
