            [post_content] => On the 28th of September, West Indies cricketer Lendl Simmons will appear in court in relation to a lawsuit that was filed by an advertising executive who has accused him of releasing intimate photos of herself. Filer of the lawsuit Therese Ho alleges that after a brief sexual relationship with the right handed batsman, released intimate photos of her, without her permission, via social media and instant messaging networks. The date for the hearing was scheduled by Justice Frank Seepersad.

Ho believes that he had breached the common law principle of confidence and is therefore seeking substantial damages from Simmons. Forestalling any further disclosure of material which emanated from her brief relationship with Simmons, Ho applied for and received an injunction on the 5th of June in 2014 from Justice Ronnie Boodoosingh.

Ho alleges that Simmons shared intimate photos of her with his fellow West Indies teammates via social media, as well as through the mobile app Viber while with the West Indies team during a tour of India. She also accuses Simmons, who was a member of the West Indies World Cup squad, of broadcasting the photographs in revenge after she threatened to go public with their romantic affair.

The 30-year-old Trinidad and Tobago opening batsman has denied ever being involved with Ho, but admitted they had a brief singular sexual encounter.

            [post_content] => Following comments made by two people on social media, the former St. Kitts and Nevis prime minister, Dr. Denzil Douglas is threatening legal action against them. In a letter written by Douglas' lawyer, he demanded that the individuals each issue an apology, retraction, #300,000 in damages, and $300,000 in legal expenses. The letter accused Jermaine Lake, the brother-in-law of Prime Minister Dr Timothy Harris, of making a, "scandalous, totally false and defamatory" comments on Facebook. The letter references his relationship to today's prime minister and describes Lake as a "public and outspoken supporter of the current administration.

The post which was made on the 11th of March related to comments pertaining to reports that the former prime minister had received a visit from US officials in January regarding the revocation of his US diplomatic visa.

"It is clear that you are not concerned with the true position. You acted with clear and transparently dishonest intention or with extreme recklessness in order to cause maximum damage to the former prime minister with the outrageous allegation," the letter from Douglas' lawyers read.

On another hand Rivi Warner-Lake, the daughter of prominent People's Action Movement politician Dr Charles Warner, is also facing a threat of legal action over Facebook posts.

In a similarly articulated letter, Douglas' legal counsel made reference to a series of posts on Facebook on March 18, which in addition to comments about his character, accused the former prime minister of criminal acts and abuse of his office.

The latter said that Douglas takes is very sober about the  issue with the allegations and in particular attempts to "scandalize his name, reputation and legacy."  While the former prime minister is open for political debate, it is apparent that the recipients are "solely motivated to damage Dr Douglas' good name for partisan political purposes", both letter stated.

The letters dated March 19 give Warner-Lake and Lake, who are of no relation, 48 hours to respond and in the absence of a "speedy and constructive response." Upon failing to do so Douglas says he will have no choice but to begin proceedings for defamation.

It is understood that Warner-Lake was expected to respond on Tuesday, while Lake by Wednesday.

            [post_content] => As they begun losing five crucial wickets, the West Indies batsmen bat in an explosive manner against their hosts New Zealand, in the fourth quarter-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 at the Wellington Regional Stadium in Wellington on Saturday. The game which ended with the New Zealand team striking a cricket World Cup record of 237 not out begun with the New Zealand skipper, Brendon McCullum being elected to bat first after wining the toss.

Cullum became the first New Zealander to score consecutive World Cup centuries, bettering his own national record of 189 not out then overtook Chris Gayle’s World Cup record of 215 set against Zimbabwe at the current tournament. His innings took 163 balls and included 24 boundaries and 11 sixes.

West Indies on the other hand were left regretting their opportunity in the opening over from Jerome Taylor when Guptill, on four, hit the ball straight to Marlon Samuels who was slow to react and dropped the ball at square-leg. Gayle who made complaints of having a back pain before the commencing of the match, setted off as if he were on a mission to reclaim his record that was snatched by Guptill after Trent Boult had bowled Jonathan Charles for three with his second ball.

He swung Southee for a six and four to leg before redirecting his focus to the customarily frugal Daniel Vettori, whose economy rate succumbed to clobbers when Gayle heaved three consecutive sixes over mid-wicket.

At the other end, Boult continued to take wickets and Vettori took a stunning catch on the third-man boundary to dismiss Marlon Samuels (27). The fun now ended when Gayle, who was now in obvious pain, was on borrowed time and fast bowler Adam Milne, returning to the side after missing the final group match against Bangladesh through a shoulder injury, dismissed the left-hander for 61 with eight sixes.

Capitulating swiftly, the remaining West Indies' batsmen peppered the boundary, Boult overtaking Australia's Mitchell Starc as the tournament's leading wicket taker with 19 victims, finished with four for 44.

New Zealand, being the most dominant team throughout the tournament, has won all their games in the group stage. West Indies on the other hand, have had a contrasting tournament.
