Persistent rain ruins second day
Rain has ruined play on the second day of
the third test at Kensington oval.
Play was called off after lunch, and will
resume half an hour early tomorrow.
Opener Kraigg Brathwaite hit an
enterprising 68 while Chris Gayle (42) and
Kirk Edwards (41 not out) also made positive
contributions as West Indies reached 159-2
The home team, which bowled out New
Zealand for 293 on day one, was still trailing
by 124 runs.
Right-hander Brathwaite, fresh off a
maiden century in Trinidad last week, stroked
10 fours off 116 balls.
The West Indies, overnight 32-0, were
guided by the 21-year-old Brathwaite and
veteran Gayle as their stand posted 79.
The 34-year-old Gayle characteristically
smashed six fours and a six before off-spinner

the big Jamaican left-hander holed out to
But New Zealand’s joy was shortlived as
Brathwaite and Edwards, two Barbadians
in front of their home fans, shared a second
wicket stand of 74 in an hour.
But just as the hosts were taking full
control, left-arm seamer Neil Wagner snared
Brathwaite into a loose drive. Tim Southee
took a diving catch to his left at extra cover.
Edwards, c losing in on a second successive
half century, lashed four fours and a six off

Djokovic, the 2011 champion,

hurting his left shoulder in a
spectacular diving attempt to
reach a Simon drive in the third
set on Centre Court.
But the Serb overcame the scare
to set up a clash with French
14th seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga for
a place in the quarter-finals.
“It was a sharp pain when I fell.
The muscle was still quite sore
because of the impact, so all in all
I’m just glad to get through,” the
world No 2 said.
Tsonga made the last 16 by
beating Jimmy Wang of Taiwan,
6-2, 6-2, 7-5.
Murray, who eased to a 6-2,
6-3, 6-2 win over Spanish 27th

of just 19 games, beating his
previous Wimbledon best of 26
games conceded in 2010.
He will face Kevin Anderson,

FOOTBALL WORLD CUP
Brazil set for acid test against Chile
Belo Horizonte (Brazil)
Brazil know that their
outstanding past record against
Chile will count for nothing
when the sides meet in an all-
South American World Cup
last-16 tie at the Mineirao
in Belo Horizonte tomorrow
The tournament host team has
lost just eight of 68 previous
meetings with Chile, and has
emerged triumphant in all three
past encounters in the World
Cup, scoring 11 goals in the
That run includes a comfortable
3-0 win against Marcelo Bielsa’s
Chile side at the same stage of
the 2010 finals in South Africa,
but midfielder Willian insists
that Brazilian fans should not
automatically expect a repeat
changed so much. Of course
Brazil have beaten Chile a few
times before, which is good. But
we must not think about this.
Every game has its own story.
I am sure that Chile will be
motivated and confident too,”
the Chelsea player said.
Brazil has yet to live up to the
high expectations surrounding it
at these finals despite collecting
seven points from a possible nine
in the group stage.
In contrast, Chile has
impressed, notably in sending
the holder Spain packing from
the competition with a 2-0 win at
the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro.
Only a 2-0 defeat to the
Netherlands in its final Group B
match condemned it to second
place and another meeting with
However, Brazil coach Luiz
Felipe Scolari has admitted he
would have chosen different
opponents for his side than
Chile, which drew 2-2 at the
Mineirao in a friendly in April
last year and narrowly lost 2-1
when the teams clashed in
Canada last November.
Striker Fred, who scored his
first goal of the tournament
in Brazil’s 4-1 win against
Cameroon, believes it will be
an open encounter against a
Chile side which operates with a
three-man defence and looks to
the class of Alexis Sanchez and
Arturo Vidal going for ward.
“Chile are tactically very strong
and play with great commitment.
Going for ward they have players
who can make the difference,”
the 30-year-old said.
“ We have seen some of their
games. The way the tournament
has been I think they will look
to attack and Brazil will do the
Chile has not reached the
quarter-finals since it hosted the
tournament in 1962, when it was
eventually eliminated in the last
four by Brazil.
However, the current side,
coached by Argentine Jorge
Sampaoli, is confident it can
capitalise on the enormous
weight of pressure on Brazil and
upset the odds.
“If I thought we were going
to lose, I would go back to my
room, collect my things and go
home,” Sanchez, who will come
up against his Barcelona club
colleagues Daniel Alves and
“ We have respect for them,
but I think we are going to
beat them. We came to this
World Cup to make history.
We beat the world champions,
and although we had a slip-up
against Holland, we are going
out to try and win the cup.
“These games are to be enjoyed.
We are confident and at the same
time we know what we have to
do to beat a team containing
some of the best players in the
world.” — AFP
