Sunshine coach feels the heat


KINGSTON – Under-fire head coach Jermaine Allison-McCracken has blamed a lack of proper preparation, bad timing and the unavailability of the best players for the Sunshine Girls’ shock 1-1 draw in the three-Test series against Barbados.

Ranked fourth in the world, the hosts were held to a 44-44 tie in the opener last Friday, won the second two days later 40-34 before crashing to a stunning 43-41 defeat in Monday’s finale at the National Arena.

McCracken, in her first series after taking over the past in March, said the side did not have the ideal build-up in preparation for the outings.

“I didn’t know much about the Barbados team at all, and there is very little footage around and, so you can’t even see them,” the Gleaner newspaper quoted Allison-McCracken as saying. (CMC)
