first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua, CMC – The West Indies Cricket Board yesterday urged top regional players to make themselves available for upcoming domestic tournaments, even as several of them prepared to turn out in Australia’s Big Bash League which runs alongside next month’s NAGICO Super50.Chief executive Michael Muirhead said the Super50 – the region’s premier one-day tournament – had been scheduled during a period to allow for maximum participation for the Caribbean’s leading players, and said their presence would be a fillip especially for West Indian fans.”There is an opportunity to have the best players compete for regional supremacy in the upcoming events,” Muirhead said.”The Board has looked at its tournament schedule and has placed each tournament at a time that allows our international players to participate in other competitions overseas.”We, however, value our competitions and we think the fans would want to see our best players compete against each other.”The Super50 bowls off from January 7-24 in Trinidad and Tobago and St Kitts, and features eight teams spread across two groups doing battle in a preliminary phase before climaxing with semi-finals and a grand Final.However, the Big Bash which started on Thursday, runs through to the New Year and is set to also wind up on January 24.Several West Indies players will be campaigning in the Big Bash with the likes of marquee opener Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, Darren Sammy, Dwayne Bravo, Samuel Badree and Lendl Simmons all signed to various franchises.Players who fail to make themselves available for the Super50, will be ineligible for the Tri-Nations Series involving Australia and South Africa from June 6-26.Muirhead said with the packed schedule ahead next year, all players would also have the opportunity to develop further.”In the upcoming year, there are a number of tours in and out of the region and with that amount of cricket added, along with the phased roll out of the high performance program, the players will have a chance at better preparing themselves for producing at the highest level.”Following the Super50, the Regional First Class Championship will resume with the remaining five rounds on February 11.last_img read more

first_imgThe Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) and the Medical Council of India are giving final touches to major reforms in the MBBS curriculum with an emphasis on thinning down courses for undergraduate medical students.“We have already prepared a draft curriculum for MBBS programmes. Currently, the draft curriculum is being assessed by experts. We will also seek public opinion on reforms to be adopted in the MBBS programme,” said Director General of Health Services Jagdish Prasad here over the weekend.Region-specific ailmentsDr. Prasad, who was speaking on the campus of the Institute of Medical Sciences and SUM Hospital, said the course orientation would be to skill students in handling common diseases in their surroundings, especially addressing region-specific ailments. “Students will no more study bulky books. Courses will be much easier to comprehend. At present, an undergraduate student is required to acquire knowledge on 10 types of surgeries, which is not necessary. They can master the skill while specialising in the stream,” he said, adding that, “We hope the new curriculum will be ready for medical students within next 18 months.”Vernacular language Dr. Prasad, who had served as principal of medical colleges for several years, said the directorate has also mooted introduction of vernacular language as medium of studies in MBBS programmes.“After admission in MBBS programme, many students usually do not understand subjects which are taught in English. In some colleges, crash courses on English are also offered so that students would have better comprehension of subjects,” he said.Stating that vernacular languages as medium of studies would have been better choice, Dr. Prasad said: “We are facing shortage of writers to translate subjects available in English into vernacular languages. In Japan, medical courses are available in Japanese language. They were able to do it as they have one language. In India, we have so many languages. But we are contemplating to give it a try.”New leprosy casesHe expressed concerns over incidences of leprosy in Odisha. “It is unfortunate that Odisha still has sizeable number of leprosy patients. We had started complete leprosy eradication programme in the country. After implementation of the programme for years, now 40,000 new cases have been detected during recent door-to-door survey of 40 crore houses. In Odisha, there are 5,100 new leprosy patients.”last_img read more
