He has been at the HPC learning a new action and a new run-up. He has been video-taped regularly, assessed, analysed and he has one more session before he can actually participate in a match. Of course, once the umpires are satisfied with what they see, we will apply at the ICC for a review for him to re-enter international cricket,” Hilaire said.Hilaire was speaking during an interview with the Antiguan media on Monday.He added, “He (Shillingford) has been very committed, very dedicated. His personal coach from Dominica has also been with him to the HPC to see the programme to go back Dominica and help him to implement the remedial work. Thomas Kentish, the former Windward Islands and Combined Islands spinner has been doing a lot of work with him and we are very happy with the kind of work Shane has put in as he tries to make a return to international cricket.”Shillingford made his international debut against South Africa last year and also toured Sri Lanka at year-end. He has played five Test matches, taking 14 wickets.“We had hoped that he would probably play this weekend [WICB First-class semi-final]. It depends on the HPC coaches telling us when they think he’s ready. We are not rushing it. We want to take our time, we want to make sure he goes through all the fundamentals before we put him back into competitive cricket,” Hilaire said.Source: Caribbean News Nowlast_img read more

DND seeks exemption from order to shun foreign aid

ABS-CBN NEWS MANILA – The Department of National Defense (DND) hopes to be exempted from President Rodrigo Duterte’s directive rejecting grants and loans from those countries backing a UN resolution, led by Iceland, seeking a comprehensive report on the Philippines’ drug war. Lorenzana, however, was not able to immediately identify which of the 18 countries, who backed the probe against Duterte’s war on drugs, have pending grants or loans for the AFP mode. “At the outset, we assure the nation and its citizenry that this directive will not have a negative and significant impact on the country,” Panelo said. “The policy would not affect existing loans or grants which are already being implemented.” The UNHRC adopted the Iceland resolution last July for an international investigation into the spate of killings and human rights violations in the country due to President Duterte’s “war on drugs.” On Monday, Malacañang confirmed the existence of the document containing the presidential directive to shun aid from countries backing the probe. Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said he might ask Duterte to exclude them from the rejection of the loans as it could possibly affect the Armed Forces of the Philippines’ (AFP) modernization program.center_img “All proposed engagements with the said countries, except for France, are technical assistance grants, thus it would “not significantly affect the infrastructure program of the government,” he added. Eighteen countries have voted for the approval of the resolution during the 41st session of UNHRC in Geneva while the other 14 opposed it and the remaining 15 countries abstained. A memorandum on signed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea on Aug. 27 ordered “all agencies, state companies and government financial institutions should suspend negotiations or agreements pending the assessment of our relations with these countries.” Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo, however, said this directive will not affect the country’s economy. “Maaapektuhan ‘yan. ‘Yung loans siguro magkakaroon ng konting kwan kami diyan. We might ask for exemption,” Lorenzana said.
