Kimberley South Africa, January 20 (ANI): West Indies defeated England in a rain-affected match by 71 runs (DLS) in the ongoing ICC U19 World Cup on Monday. Chasing 268, England were restricted at 184/9 before the start of rain at Diamond Oval here. As the rains did not stop, the Caribbean team was declared the winner by the DLS method.

Ben Charlesworth and Jordan Cox stitched a 53-run opening partnership. Cox was dismissed by Ashmead Nedd after playing a knock of 20 runs in the 14th over. Charlesworth (36) was scalped by Matthew Patrick in the 21st over.

Tom Clark and Jack Haynes added a 51-run stand for the third wicket. The former was plumbed in front of the wickets by Nedd after scoring 38 runs.

Dan Mousley, who joined Haynes in the middle, failed to leave his mark on the scoreboard and was sent back to the pavilion by Nyeem Young in the 33rd over. Mousley scored just four runs.

After the dismissal of Mousley, England lost four quick wickets as Heynes (27), Joey Evison (1), Lewis Goldsworthy (3), and skipper George Balderson (10) were sent back to the pavilion, reducing England to 151/8.

Kasey Aldridge and Blake Cullen stitched a brief stand of 23-run for the eighth wicket. Aldridge was caught and bowled by Matthew Forde after scoring 21 runs.

Cullen and Hamidullah Qadri remained unbeaten at seven and four runs respectively. Young bagged fifer while Nedd clinched two wickets to give their side a second consecutive victory in the tournament.

Earlier, Windies were asked to bat first after losing the toss. An unbeaten 86 by Kevlon Anderson and Nyeem Young's half-century steered them to 267/7 in 50 overs.

Anderson's knock was studded with three sixes while Young hammered 66 runs off 41 balls. He was awarded player of the match for his all-round performance with bat and ball. (ANI)

ATLANTA (AP) — Rapper and actor T.I. has settled civil charges with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that he helped promote a fraudulent cryptocurrency. T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, agreed to a civil settlement with the SEC that was announced Friday. He is paying a $75,000 fine and agreeing not to sell or market similar securities for at least five years. Harris got into trouble, the SEC said, because he used his social media accounts to promote FLiK, falsely claiming to be a co-owner, and asked an unnamed actor and comedian to also promote FLiK, providing language calling it T.I.’s “new venture.” The SEC says both of those moves broke federal laws against selling securities without registering with the SEC. The charges against Harris were part of a larger enforcement action against others including film producer Ryan Felton, who faces wire fraud and other charges in a 28-count indictment unsealed Wednesday.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Legal advocates are lining up on both sides of actor Bill Cosby’s appeal as the Pennsylvania Supreme Court prepares to review his 2018 sex assault conviction. Cosby was the first celebrity to go on trial in the #MeToo era, and his appeal could resolve lingering questions about how the cases should be tried. For starters, the high court will try to clarify when other accusers can testify against a defendant — and when the additional testimony amounts to character assassination. Public defenders in Philadelphia, in a friend-of-the-court brief filed in Cosby’s appeal, noted that courts have given conflicting guidance on the issue.

NEW YORK (AP) — The Council of Fashion Designers of America gave its top fashion awards on Monday to Gabriela Hearst for womenswear and Kerby Jean-Raymond for menswear. The two designers led a group of winners that the CFDA said was the most diverse in the 39-year history of the awards. It was the second honor in two days for Jean-Raymond, the prominent Black founder of the Pyer Moss label, who was also named Designer of the Year by Harlem’s Fashion Row in a virtual ceremony on Sunday. The CFDA winners also included Telfar Clemens, who won the accessories award, and Christopher John Rogers, who won for American emerging designer. All four were first-time winners.

NEW YORK (AP) — There’s a scene in a new documentary about Paris Hilton, where the so-called socialite is speaking with former classmates from a Utah boarding school. They joke about how on her reality series “The Simple Life,” Hilton pretended to be clueless over many things— including how to perform any sort of manual labor. One bluntly described it as “some straight-up (expletive),” as they all laughed. “I don’t think you had like a high-pitch voice back then,” was another observation. None of this is a surprise to Hilton. What’s revealed in “This is Paris,” which debuted for free Monday on Hilton’s YouTube channel, is that the ultra-glam, baby-talking young woman whose standard line was “that’s hot,” was a manufactured caricature not just for fame but self-protection, too.
