Cricket WC: Hurt Lanka ready to down Kenya

COLOMBO: Sri Lanka are expected to welcome the return of fast bowler Lasith Malinga to their ranks when they meet Kenya on Tuesday in a World Cup Group A match.Sri Lanka”s bowling lacked the penetration on Saturday to stop Pakistan from running up a competitive total of 277-7 and the lost the contest by 11 runs.Malinga has been nursing a sore back in the past fortnight but coach Trevor Bayliss said that he was available for selection for the Kenyan game.”Malinga”s physio told us that the first two weeks were the most important,” said Bayliss.”The first two weeks are up tomorrow since he got injured. He is fit and it”s up to the selectors to select him or not for tomorrow.”Malinga is a key component in the Sri Lanka bowling line-up having built up his reputation at the last World Cup by becoming the only bowler to capture four wickets off four balls in the match against South Africa.Sri Lanka will be looking to redeem themselves having come off second best against Pakistan.One of the key areas Sri Lanka will be concentrating on is building up partnerships in their batting which let them down after a decent start during their run chase.Sri Lanka will stick to their original batting line-up and if there are any changes it is going to be in the bowling where either Nuwan Kulasekara or Thisara Perera may have to make way for Malinga. Sri Lanka may also rest Muttiah Muralitharan, the master spinner who has been so far disappointing, and play their other two spinners Ajantha Mendis and Rangana Herath.Kenya, well beaten in their first two matches by New Zealand (10 wickets) and Pakistan (205 runs), are looking for some redemption with suggestions from a recent Reuters interview LDE71P0B7 of splits between the senior players and coach.”We can”t continue doing the same thing all the time. Tomorrow we have the third game against another top side. We have got to work on that and try to get a good result out there,” Kenyan captain Jimmy Kamande said. (Reuters)

Oil mixed as Saudi commits to supplies

SINGAPORE: Crude prices were mixed in Asian trade Tuesday as oil kingpin Saudi Arabia”s pledge to ensure sufficient supplies partially eased investor worries, analysts said. New York”s benchmark West Texas Intermediate contract for April delivery fell five cents to $96.92 and Brent North Sea crude for April delivery was up 21 cents to $112.01.Fears about supply disruption sent Brent soaring close to $120 last week.Saudi Arabia, OPEC”s largest producer, said on Monday it was committed to the stability of the oil market after Libya”s crude production dropped as the country is hit by unrest.The government, in a statement carried by the state-run SPA news agency, said the cabinet met and discussed the anti-regime protests shaking Libya “and their repercussion on oil production in that country.”Saudi Arabia “is committed to the stability of the market” and to ensuring that oil supplies remain available, the statement said, adding that the kingdom hopes Libya”s production returns to normal soon.Chen Xin Yi, commodities analyst for Barclays Capital warned: “While news that Saudi Arabia is increasing its crude output to more than nine million barrels per day, which helped eased concerns about short term supply, the crude oil produced is not an exact substitute for the Libyan”s crude.”Libya”s opposition forces, in control of the country”s major oil installations, said Monday they were resuming oil exports, with the expected departure of a tanker for China.It will be the first cargo of crude to sail from Libya since February 19, after security forces began a crackdown on anti-regime protesters in the east.On February 22, Saudi Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi said Riyadh would compensate for any oil supply problems caused by unrest in the Middle East, but added there was no current shortage.Saudi Arabia pumps around 8.4 million barrels of oil per day, but Naimi said the kingdom still has a spare capacity of another four million.
