The ICC has handed official warnings under its pitch and outfield monitoring process to Kingsmead in Durban and the Queens Park Oval in Port of Spain. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare Golden Knights Jersey . Kingsmead hosted the first Test between South Africa and New Zealand from August 19 to 23, and the Queens Park Oval the fourth Test between West Indies and India from August 18 to 22. Both matches were heavily curtailed because of outfield conditions.Andy Pycroft and Ranjan Madugalle, the match referees for the two Tests, both rated the outfields poor in their official reports.Madugalle and Geoff Allardice, the ICCs general manager, reviewed CSAs response to the poor rating, while Allardice and match referee David Boon reviewed WICBs response.Since this was the first occasion either ground had received a poor rating, the grounds stood to receive either a warning or a fine not exceeding USD 15,000, along with a directive for appropriate corrective action.The sanctions take into account Durban and Port of Spain venues history of producing good conditions for international cricket and commitment by both the boards to take appropriate steps to ensure similar events are not repeated in future, an ICC release said.In all, 11 sessions out of 15 were lost to a wet and soft outfield at Kingsmead. Only 22 overs of play were possible in the Port of Spain Test, with no play at all on days two, three, four and five despite largely sunny weather. T.J. Tynan Jersey . Bryzgalov stopped 25 shots on Saturday in the Oklahoma City Barons 4-1 victory over the Abbotsford Heat. The Oilers signed Bryzgalov to a one-year $2 million contract last Friday after shedding payroll by dealing defenceman Ladislav Smid to the Flames. Nate Schmidt Golden Knights Jersey . Vaives lawyer Trevor Whiffen claims the former 50-goal man wasnt provided with a copy of the claim beforehand and that he would not have agreed to the allegations made against the NHL had he been asked to review its contents. http:///...knights-jersey-c-13/ . He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. NEW YORK -- American swimmer Ryan Lochte said he over-exaggerated what happened at a Rio de Janeiro gas station and acknowledged it was his immature behavior that got him and three teammates into a mess that consumed the final days of the Olympics.Lochte, in a portion of an interview with NBCs Matt Lauer that aired Saturday , continued backtracking from a story that he initially described as an armed robbery. Police have said the swimmers vandalized a bathroom after a night of partying and armed guards confronted them and asked them to pay for the damage.Its how you want to make it look like, Lochte said. Whether you call it a robbery or whether you call it extortion or us just paying for the damages, we dont know. All we know is that there was a gun pointed in our direction and we were demanded to give money.But he admitted that he understood that he was being told that the Americans had to pay for the damages or the police would be called.At that point, Lauer said, Youre striking a deal. Is that fair?We just wanted to get out of there, Lochte said, adding the swimmers were frightened.Lauer told Lochte that his story had morphed from one about the mean streets or Rio to a negotiated settlement to cover up dumb behavior.Thats why Im taking full responsibility for it, because I over-exaggerated the story, Lochte said. If I had never done that, we wouldnt be in this mess.Lochte also said that he had lieed in telling NBC interviewer Billy Bush the next day that a gun had been cocked and pointed at his forehead. David Clarkson Jersey. He said that he was still under the influence of alcohol when he talked to Bush.I definitely had too much to drink that night and I was very intoxicated, he said.Lochte, who dyed his hair white for the Games and had it turn a light shade of green from the pool, had changed his hair back to its regular shade of brown for the interview, which was conducted in New York. As Brazilian police investigated his robbery claim, and eventually held his teammates for questioning while they sorted out his story, he had tweeted he intended to dye it back.He said he hoped to continue competitive swimming but acknowledged that it wont be his decision about whether hed be able to be part of the American team again. USA Swimming and the International Olympic Committee could issue sanctions.Lochte said he regretted how the incident had tarnished Rio and the last week of the Olympics. He also gave an interview to Brazils main broadcaster Globo on Saturday to apologize for his actions.Brazil doesnt deserve that, he said to Globo. I am sorry that my immaturity caused all this ruckus.---Associated Press Writer Adriana Gomez Licon contributed to this report from Rio de Janeiro.
