Jamaica Tallawahs captain Chris Gayle has thrown his support behind making a USA leg an annual part of the Caribbean Premier Leagues schedule, and has said he hopes the league will come back next year for the good of cricket in the US. Wholesale Chiefs Jerseys .Speaking at the Tallawahs training session on Monday at the Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, Florida, Gayle said that in order for the effort to get into the US market to succeed, it had to be on a consistent basis rather than the one-and-done events of the past. Gayle has toured the USA with West Indies teams to New York in 2006 and Florida in 2012, and believes the fan base is present to support cricket but that the lack of regular events has stifled momentum.I think the US is cricket-orientated, Gayle said. When you look at the mixed culture here over in the US, I think you have a huge cricket base and cricket fans over here as well. I think the cricket from a West Indies point of view has been trying to break into the US market for years now. We havent been successful so its just always a bit of here and there.Hopefully the CPL will actually be consistent with having games here in the US. If its just a one-off thing, then itll be a problem for the game of cricket in the United States as well. If it can actually progress, I know this leg will be a good one for CPL and if it can continue next year and keep letting the people here in the US get a chance to see it live, then it should be a fantastic thing for the game of cricket here in the US as well.The most recent tour in 2012 provided good memories for Gayle. Opening the batting for West Indies in the first of two T20 internationals against New Zealand, Gayle struck an unbeaten 85 off 52 balls and combined with Kieron Pollard for a 108-run stand in the final 6.5 overs to post a total of 209 for 2, a record for the side which stood until January 2015. A series sweep over New Zealand in Florida set the tone for their World T20 triumph over Sri Lanka a few months later and Gayle said he was happy to be back in Lauderhill.It was a great memory to be honest with you, Gayle said. When you look back at it, you are always thinking what sort of wicket youre going to get to play on because a lot of cricket up here is played on the matting. We played on a wicket that was very good to bat on. I dont see any difference since Ive just been out there from what happened in the past. So it should be a good wicket and hopefully a lot of runs can be scored on the wicket as well which will actually make the game more interesting.Its like here in the Caribbean. The sun is out, the beach is just down the road as well. I know everybodys looking forward to it. South Beach is a bit further away and everybodys having a good time as well. But its just good to be back and Im looking forward to the opportunity to play here again. Hopefully this will be a new beginning for CPL and will hope it progress over the next few years as well.Gayle also recalled the first-day sellout crowd of 15,000 people in 2012 for the West Indies matches. Though attendance has been capped for the CPL at 10,000, Gayle expects the atmosphere to be just as lively and is hoping the sizeable Jamaican expat population will give Tallawahs a boost for their games against St Lucia Zouks on Saturday and Sunday to help maintain their hold on the first place heading into the playoffs.When West Indies actually played New Zealand here, the turnout was tremendous, Gayle said. I think the CPL will bring out the crowd once more. The atmosphere that theyve seen on TV, Im sure they want to experience it for themselves as well so hopefully we get a good [crowd to] start on Thursday and then itll progress over the weekend as well. So it should be a good one and Im looking forward to it.Im happy on a personal point of view as well and as a team point of view to actually be at the top of the table. So hopefully we can actually maintain the momentum which we left in Jamaica and come in here and play against the Zouks on Saturday and Sunday, win at least one of those games and then move on to the final.Im sure youll see some Jamaican flags flying around. The support is actually good for us. Itll be noisy, its going to be a great atmosphere and hopefully everybody at the end of the day can walk away happy and then well move on to the finals in St Kitts. Chiefs Official Jerseys .com) - The Calgary Flames aim to bounce back from their first regulation home loss of the campaign on Friday night when they host a Detroit Red Wings club that they swept in three meetings a season ago. Chiefs Youth Jerseys . 8 Iowa State on Saturday, sending the Cyclones to their third consecutive loss. The Longhorns (14-4, 3-2) got their biggest win of the season with their third in the row in the Big 12. . Capitals head coach Adam Oates said Ovechkin was injured in the first period against the Vancouver Canucks on Monday and clarified it was not a head injury. CALGARY -- Hugh ONeill passed a big test in his latest audition with the B.C. Lions. The 23-year-old booted five field goals, including the game-clinching kick late in the fourth quarter, as B.C. defeated the Calgary Stampeders 29-27 in a soggy CFL pre-season game on Friday. ONeills winning field goal from 47 yards out with 1:13 left on the clock bounced off the crossbar and over for the victory in a driving rain at McMahon Stadium. "Its a little more dramatic than I would have liked," said the Edmonton native. "I just tried to stay focused on my stroke and just not worry too much. I put my head down, made the kick and waited for that bounce." B.C. left 21-year veteran kicker Paul McCallum in Vancouver. Lions head coach Mike Benevides wants the option of having two kickers this season and is testing ONeill and Steven Shott as possible partners for McCallum. "Paul didnt come because we know what he could do," Benevides said. "This is about evaluation. Weve had a roster built with a possibility of having two kickers on game day if we so choose and just to see if we have enough quality to get that on there. "Hugh, this is his third pre-season with us. He answered the bell. He had a huge kick to make." The wind and rain that started early in Fridays third quarter made execution difficult for the players. It was also uncomfortable for the announced crowd of 26,328 at McMahon Stadium, the majority of which left before the end of the game. ONeills abundant beard has earned him several nicknames, including "Moonshine" and "Duck Dynasty." The weather didnt rattle the University of Alberta product, who was a perfect 5-for-5, including kicks of 10, 19, 36 and another from 47 yards to end the first half. "They gave me an opportunity to have the game to myself, which is massive for me," ONeill said. "Just to get that kind of back-on-the-field menntality and playing a whole game is really good for me, so Im trying to make the most of it. Authentic Chiefs Jerseys. " The CFL tuneup was both a preview of the regular-season opener for both clubs and a rematch of the 2012 West Division final, which the Stampeders won to earn a berth in the Grey Cup. B.C.s Korey Williams scored on a 105-yard kickoff return and Nick Moore caught a touchdown pass from Thomas DeMarco for the visitors. Calgary backup quarterback Kevin Glenn threw touchdown passes to Mo Price and Khalil Paden. Running back Jonathan Williams scored on a one-yard dive late in the fourth quarter to give the hosts a temporary lead. Stampeders kicker Rene Paredes had a pair of field goals. Lions No. 1 quarterback Travis Lulay played a fraction of the first quarter before giving way to backups DeMarco, Chris Hart and Joey Elliott. Lulay completed 2-of-5 passes for 13 yards. DeMarco was 6-for-12 for 68 yards and a touchdown, Hart was 1-for-6 for two yards and Elliott was 3-for-4 for 25 yards. Calgary rotated starter Drew Tate, Glenn and Bo Levi Mitchell through the game with third-stringer Mitchell working the majority of the second half. Tate connected on 2-of-7 passes for seven yards in the first quarter. Glenn was 7-for-10 for 125 yards, a pair of touchdown passes and one interception in the second quarter. Mitchell was 9-for-14 and 101 yards. Ryan Perrilloux had one throw for three yards. "Drew had a tough time," Calgary coach and general manager John Hufnagel said. "Kevin came in and looked sharp. Bo, I thought, made plays in the second half under strenuous conditions." Notes: The Stampeders conclude the pre-season on Thursday in Saskatchewan and open the regular season at home against the Lions on June 28. ... The Lions host the Edmonton Eskimos in their final pre-season game on Friday. B.C.s home-opener is July 4 against the defending Grey Cup champion Toronto Argonauts.Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
