Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick stayed neutral in the debate whether his striker Robert Lewandowski is better than Barcelona star Lionel Messi ahead of Friday’s Champions League quarter-final clash in Lisbon Barca face Bayern at the Estadio da Luz for a place in next Wednesday’s semi-final.Advertisement Lewandowski is enjoying the best season of his career so far with 53 goals in 44 games, while Messi has managed 31 in 43 matches.However, treble-chasing Bayern need to come up with a plan on how to contain Messi.“You never defend against him alone. In the (previous Bayern) games against Messi, it always worked well when the whole team played their part,” said Bayern forward Thomas Mueller.“If the first player doesn’t win the ball (from Messi), the next comes and tries.“We have to act together, go into the challenges aggressively, but cleanly.“It will be exciting, but in our games in the last few weeks, we have shown that we can do it,” he added with Bayern unbeaten in their 13 match since the restart.Read Also: Simeone defends Atletico Madrid stars after UCL exitFlick insists Friday’s showdown is not “Bayern against Messi.

WITH the completion of the National Schools’ Cycling, Swimming and Track and Field Championships,the lingering question is what’s next for these sports in the schools as well as for individual athletes who have shown potential.Towards that end, at least in the field of athletics, president of the Athletics Association of Guyana (AAG)Aubrey Hudson, said that the Association is working along with the Guyana Teacher’s Union and Ministry of Education (MoE) to have every secondary school in the country registered with the Association.According to Hudson,when systems are put in place to foster a better relationship between the schools and the AAG,it will put the Association in a better position to look at the welfare of the students.“We are in touch with the school system,” Hudson said, continuing that: “We are on a drive right now to register every secondary school as members of the AAG, because we feel a need for them to be represented, and (we’ll) try to sit with the Guyana Teacher’s Union (GTU) and the Ministry of Education(in) creating the interest in track and field and ensuring that every school has a physical education teacher with at least a basic knowledge of track and field.With that even if they (the athletes) are far away from a club but they have an active school’s track and field program then we can more be in touch with them, and whenever we have meets we can ensure that they are invited.”Hutson added that the Association is looking at outlying areas outside of Georgeotown, and the initiative has already begun to roll out on the East Coast of Demerara.“To take the whole country in one grasp it’s going to be too difficult. We’re working primarily on the East Coast right now, and once we would have covered there, we’re going to move to the West Coast, West Bank and East Bank.“Linden and Georgetown are, I don’t want to say taken care of, but most of the athletes in these areas are in clubs, so we’re really looking at the outlying areas immediately outside of Georgetown, and then we’ll go to Berbice and so on.” Hudson related.The AAG recently assisted the East Coast Demerara, District 4, team to train on the highway for the recently concluded Nationals.The Asosciation is working on its relationship with the varying authorities that run the school system, Hutson noted, to improve on the overall Championships as well.“We’re really and truly massaging our relationship with the GTU and the Ministry (of Education) and I think every year it is getting better and better. We’re changing our approach and we’re gently bringing to board the things that we think are going to make the Championships better.”Working along with the organisers the AAG provided the Fully Automatic Timing (FAT) system to record timings at the Championships this year, the first time that the system was in use at this event. Through this the AAG can now sanction timings clocked at the meet.“The mere fact that we are going to authenticate their performances, we can use those performances now as a yardstick to judge when requests are made to us for athletes of a particular talent for let’s say for scholarship then we can say yes these are authentic performances.” Hutson relayed.
JAMAICA Tallawahs secured their third win of the CPL and tournament and ahead of the pack into third place thanks to Glenn Phillips’ 79 not out and a polished bowling performance on a slow surface at Queen’s Park Oval.Rovman Powell opted to bat first, anticipating that the pitch would get slower as the game went on, and was vindicated by a XX-run win as his side defended 147 with complete ease.(Scores): Jamaica Tallawahs 147 for 6 (Phillips 79*, Emrit 3-32) beat St Kitts and Nevis Patriots 110 (Brathwaite 3-11) by 37 runsThey had struggled to score in the first ten overs, inching to 53 for 1 at the halfway stage, but after spending 16 overs grinding between first and second gear, Phillips suddenly slipped into sixth and floored the gas on his way to his highest CPL score since the equivalent fixture last season.Patriots’ run chase never get going after Fidel Edwards cleaned up Chris Lynn in his first over, with Edwards, Veerasammy Permaul and Sandeep Lamichhane finishing with two wickets and Carlos Brathwaite grabbing three.Fabulous PhillipsPhillips struggled badly early in the Tallawahs’ innings, making 14 off the first 23 balls he faced before eventually hitting his first boundary at the end of the 11th over. He had little of the strike after a sedate Powerplay, camping on the back foot against the spinners throughout and scraping his way to 38 off 44 balls with 21 balls left in the innings.The nadir came in the 14th, when he played out a maiden against legspinner Imran Khan after Nick Kelly had shelled a sitter off the last ball of the previous over.But he managed to launch a late-innings explosion against the Patriots’ wayward death-bowling pair, Sheldon Cottrell and Rayad Emrit. First, he whacked Cottrell for three sixes in as many balls, all three of them in the ‘V’ down the ground. Emrit was the victim for his last two sixes, both over long-on, and was then heaved through midwicket for four even as Phillips collapsed with cramp.He eventually ended unbeaten on 79 off 61 balls, scoring more runs from his final 17 balls (41) than his first 44 (38). It was the first time he had ended not out in his CPL career, and he revealed afterwards that he had been desperate to take the innings deep after failing to take Tallawahs over the line at any stage in the tournament to date.Patriots’ post-Powerplay problemsESPNcricinfo’s predictor gave the Patriots a 73.4% chance of winning after they had reached 39 for 1 after six overs of the chase, but they fell away in dramatic style in the following five overs. Chadwick Walton, standing in for Phillips for the first half of the chase after his cramp while batting, took a great catch off Permaul to dismiss Denesh Ramdin, before Ben Dunk chopped on to begin a wicket maiden for Brathwaite.Kieran Powell was left stranded as he skipped down the wicket against Permaul at the start of the 10th over, Walton taking four or five seconds to dislodge the bails as he cruelly taunted the batsman, and Brathwaite’s legcutter accounted for Emrit in the 11th. That meant they had lost four wickets for 14 runs in five overs after the fielding restrictions were lifted – before Lamichhane had bowled a single ball.Lewis in limboBoth teams had injury problems to cope with. Andre Russell missed a second game in a row due to his knee flare-up which will have Kolkata Knight Riders sweating, and had Phillips’ cramp to contend with too.Dunk went off the field in the second over for the Patriots with a thumb injury, though was soon back on and was fit to bat, but Evin Lewis hobbled off after the end of the innings nursing his groin. He had opened in 140 out of his 149 career T20 innings, but found himself sliding down to No. 7 today due to his tweak.He signalled early on that he had few intentions of knocking the runs off in ones and twos, whacking a Lamichhane googly for a towering six over wide long-on and then slapping Edwards for another huge blow down the ground. But he fell to Lamichhane in the 16th over trying to repeat the trick, and took any lingering hopes the Patriots had with him. (ESPN Cricinfo).
