Pakistan 304 for 4 (Younis 127, Misbah 90*, Shafiq 68) v West IndiesScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsYounis Khans 33rd Test hundred gave Pakistan the ideal first-day platform in the second Test against West Indies, lifting them from an uneasy 42 for 2 to a commanding 304 for 4 at stumps. Air Max 97 Vapormax Noir . Returning to the side after missing the day-night Test in Dubai to recover from a bout of dengue fever, Younis looked like he had never been away. He added 87 with Asad Shafiq for the third wicket, and 175 for the fourth with Misbah-ul-Haq, as Pakistan ground down a limited West Indies attack in typically benign first-day conditions in Abu Dhabi.Younis made 127 before he fell in the 84th over of the day, slog-sweeping Kraigg Brathwaites part-time offspin to deep midwicket. It turned out to be the last ball of the day, with the umpires ruling that the light had faded too much to continue just as the nightwatchman Yasir Shah walked in to the middle. Misbah, who already has five hundreds in Abu Dhabi and averaged 99.77 at the ground before this innings, went to stumps batting on 90.West Indies bowlers endured a long and largely thankless day on the field, made worse by two costly misses. In the last over before tea, Kraigg Brathwaite failed to hold on to a return catch off a firmly-hit flat-bat drive when Younis was on 83. Then, batting on 54 in the eleventh over after tea, Misbah nicked a ball from Shannon Gabriel that straightened in the corridor. Wicketkeeper Shai Hope, having initially moved in the wrong direction, dived low to his right behind the stumps, and the ball bounced out of his right glove.Gabriel bowled impressively in patches, picking up two wickets and generating reverse-swing with the old ball, but the rest of West Indies bowling didnt make much of an impact. Miguel Cummins and Jason Holder made up somewhat for their lack of incision by conceding less than three runs an over, but the spinners were neither threatening nor economical. Among them, Devendra Bishoo, Roston Chase and Brathwaite conceded 181 runs at an economy rate of 4.41.Having chosen to bat first, Pakistan lost their first wicket in the fifth over of the morning, Azhar Ali playing on while looking to drive Gabriel through the covers, the ball nipping in a little and not quite coming on to the bat. Walking in at No. 3, Shafiq got going almost immediately, rising to his toes to cut Gabriel for four off the second ball he faced. In the next over, he punished another short ball, this time swivelling to pull Miguel Cummins through square leg.Shafiq continued to play his shots, moving confidently forward to ease drives through the covers and nimbly back to cut and pull deliveries from Bishoo that were only marginally short. As he sparkled at one end, Sami Aslam played a strange innings at the other. He seldom got the strike, and barely scored any runs when he did, while not looking particularly troubled by any of West Indies bowlers. By the end of the 13th over, he was batting on 6 off 28 balls and Shafiq on 32 off 44. Then, off the second ball of the 14th over, he looked to drive Bishoo through the covers, against the turn, and was bowled through the gate by a dipping legbreak. In walked Younis, back in the side after missing the first Test to recover from a bout of dengue fever. He got an early freebie from Bishoo, wide and overpitched, to smear through the covers, but that was his only boundary in the 62 balls he faced before lunch, as West Indies tightened their lines and lengths. There was little in the conditions to challenge either batsman, and Younis moved safely to 29 without always looking at ease.His shuffle across the crease caused him a couple of uneasy moments: Cummins found his leading edge while he tried to work through the leg side, and Jason Holder got him to nick the ball when he moved across rather than forward, towards the ball in defence, but both balls fell safely short of fielders.Soon after lunch, Younis nearly played on to Cummins; defending firmly into the pitch, he had to stretch his left foot out to kick the ball away as it rolled back towards the stumps. But he grew increasingly comfortable at the crease after that, and took heavy toll of the spinners, pouncing on anything cuttable, and driving through the covers with and against the turn, the pick of his shots an inside-out loft over extra-cover off Chases offspin.Shafiq fell in the ninth over after lunch, chopping on while trying to force Gabriel through the covers off the back foot. Gabriel was reversing the ball both ways in this spell, and beat both of Misbahs edges soon after he came to the crease, but Holder took him off after a spell of only three overs. The longest spell Gabriel bowled all day lasted four overs.With West Indies main threat out of the way, Misbah began enjoying himself, greeting Bishoos reintroduction by pulling his third ball, a rank long-hop, over midwicket for four, and then, three balls later, launching a flighted ball high over the long-on boundary. Younis and Misbah took 40 runs off Bishoos eight-over spell before tea, shutting the door in West Indies faces right after Gabriel had opened it a crack with the wicket of Shafiq. Misbah only hit six boundaries in his innings: four of them came off Bishoo, of whom he took 37 runs in 40 balls.Post-tea, West Indies went into defensive mode, getting Cummins to bowl wide outside off stump with a packed off-side field. But the tactic didnt really stem Pakistans run flow; there was no movement available to him, and plenty of large spaces in the vast outfield for Misbah and Younis to push the ball into for twos. After four overs, Cummins gave way to Gabriel; he found Misbahs edge in his second over, and Hope - playing this Test match because Shane Dowrich pulled up injured in training - put the chance down. Pakistan were 242 for 3 at that stage, and 242 for 4 may just have rattled them given they were playing five bowlers. Instead, Misbah and Younis added a further 62. Air Max 270 Flyknit Pas Cher .

Hey Kerry, big fan of yours, just finished reading your book. I think that we all saw the Canucks/Flames line brawl just after puck drop. It was obvious that something was about to happen, even to the referees because the fourth lines were on to start. DENVER -- The Denver Broncos pulled out of a two-game tailspin just in time to face a team that helped touch off the problems.For the second time in three weeks, the Broncos (5-2) will be facing AFC West rival San Diego (3-4), which has strung together consecutive wins over Atlanta and the Broncos since its 1-4 start.When you win, it boosts so much confidence around the team, Chargers nose tackle Brandon Mebane said. Coming in on Mondays, Wednesday and Tuesdays, the vibe and the atmosphere are so much better. Just winning period is a good feeling. We are starting to believe.San Diego handed Denver a 21-13 loss a week after Atlanta dealt Denver its first loss of the season.They have some interesting stats, said Broncos coach Gary Kubiak, who was sidelined by illness for the earlier meeting between the teams. I think theyve held the lead more than anybody in this league right now. Theyve just lost some games late, but played really well.They obviously got after us and went to Atlanta and beat a really good football team on the road. Theyre playing well. (San Diego quarterback) Philip 1/8Rivers 3/8 is playing well. Defensively, theyre very active. (Defensive end Joey) Bosa is playing a big part right now so well have to play a lot better than we did a couple of weeks ago, I know that.Showcasing a resurgent running game and efficient play from quarterback Trevor Siemian, the Broncos got back on track last week with a 27-9 win over Houston.And the rematch with San Diego comes in Denver this time. For their part, the Chargers have not won on the road against a division foe since beating the Raiders in Oakland 31-28 on Oct. 12, 2014. The Chargers have not swept a season series against the Broncos since 2010.Be that as it may, with Rivers as productive as ever and Bosa blossoming as a rookie pass rusher the Chargers are in a pretty good place heading into Sundays contest.I think our attitude has been good, Bosa said. Nobody really ever got down even after those few losses in a row. We just tried to keep our head up in the locker room, feed off of each other and keep a positive attitude moving forward. Affter getting that win on Thursday night (against the Broncos), I think it really boosted the positivity and the belief in the locker room and now were just feeding off that, especially with another win on Sunday. Air Max 97 Undefeated Pas Cher. San Diego coach Mike McCoy said the Chargers know better than to automatically assume a repeat of their first encounter with Denver.That ones behind us now, he said. You cant worry about that one and the last couple of weeks. You got to go on to the next one and play better this week.Denvers defense re-asserted itself in the win over Houston, limiting the Texans to three field goals and the unit is anxious to show its mettle the second time around against the Chargers.Thats definitely the case, Broncos safety Darien Stewart said. Im happy to be playing them again this early. Were looking forward to it. We still had a bad taste in our mouths even last week and last game. Were ready for them.Both teams have their share of injuries that they are dealing with heading into the game.Denver running back C.J. Anderson, who had his first 100-yard rushing game last week, will miss the contest after undergoing knee surgery to repair meniscus damage. Anderson was placed on injured reserve on Friday.Rookie Devontae Booker, whose 4.8 yard average per carry leads the Broncos, will start in Andersons place and fellow running back Kapri Bibbs could see more playing time.Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall also has missed practice time this week with a hamstring injury.Meantime, Denver pass rushing linebacker DeMarcus Ware is nearing a return from a fractured forearm, though it is still uncertain whether he will play against the Chargers. Ware, who suffered the injury Sept. 18 against Indianapolis, returned to practice this week.San Diego placed defensive tackle Caraun Reid on injured reserve after he suffered a knee injury during the overtime win at Atlanta.Cornerback Brandon Flowers returned to practice this week after missing the past month because of a concussion.

PHOENIX -- Chris Taylor has been a spot starter at best in his young major league career, and hed never had anything like the night he had on Friday. Nike Epic React Flyknit Comprar .Taylor, acquired in a trade with Seattle a month ago, fell a single shy of the cycle, and Bud Norris finally beat Arizona in the Los Angeles Dodgers 13-7 victory over the Diamondbacks.Taylor, a utility infielder recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on June 25, tripled in the fourth, doubled in the fifth and hit a grand slam in the sixth, his first career home run. He was out on a bunt in the eighth.It was a really a fun night, he said, a night Ill always remember.Norris (5-7) was 0-7 with a 13.92 ERA in his career against the Diamondbacks entering the game, but ended the drought with the help of the Dodgers season-high 18 hits. Norris went five innings, allowing five runs and eight hits.Its a tough place to pitch, he said. I personally have struggled here a few times, so I just wanted to go as deep as I could, kind of just leave all my pitches out there.Arizonas Patrick Corbin (4-8) lasted four innings, giving up seven runs and seven hits.The biggest thing for me is not getting ahead like I have in the past, he said. It is leading to walks and hitters counts. It is something I need to get better on.The Diamondbacks took a 3-2 lead with three runs in the third, two on Michael Bourns triple, only to give it up in the Dodgers five-run fourth, with two scoring on Taylors triple. Yasiel Puig singled in two more before being thrown out trying to stretch it into a double.Los Angeles loaded the bases with no outs in the sixth. Silvino Bracho struck out the next two but Taylor hit one into the seats beyond left field and the Dodgers led 12-4.In the eighth, needing only a single, Taylor chose to lay down a bunt and was thrown out by the pitcher.I thought it was a good time, the situation, he said. They had the third baseman back and its always been a part of my game, regardless of the hits (I had). I think you put me in that situation again Im still going to try it. Its something I take pride in.The Dodgers led 12-7 at the time, not usually a situation that calls for a bunt, but manager Dave Roberts backed up Taylors decision.When youre trying to win a game here in this ballpark youve got to play by different rules, Roberts said. Its almost like you cant score enough. So I thought it was a very heady play. If it was executed a little bit better he would have hit for the cycle.Eight Dodgers have hit for the cycle, only two since the franchise moved to Los Angeles in 1958: Wes Parker in 1970 and Orlando Hudson in 2009.Third baseman Jake Lambs two errors in the third led to an unearned Los Angeles run.The Diamondbacks fell to 15-33 at home.KERSHAW CLOSERDodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is inching closer to a return.Kershaw, sidelined since June 27 with a mild disk herniation, will throw a simulated game in Los Angeles on Saturday. Roberts said Kershaw will throw 60 pitches.Before he was hurt, Kershaw, as usual, was one of the games best pitchers, going 11-2 with a 1.79 ERA.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: Roberts said a bone scan Friday of OF Andre Ethiers right tibia showed the fracture has not completely healed but its healed enough that Andre, to his tolerance, can continue to progress with baseball activity. Roberts said the Dodgers will ramp him up and see where it takes us. LHP Alex Wood (posterior elbow) will pitch in the same simulated game as Kershaw.Diamondbacks: RHP Zack Greinke (strained oblique) played catch Thursday night, the first time hes done so since the injury.UP NEXTDodgers: RHP Brandon McCarthy (2-0, 2.70 ERA) makes his third start since coming back from Tommy John surgery, facing his former team for the first time.Diamondbacks: RHP Archie Bradley (3-5, 4.64), coming off a strong but losing effort against San Francisco, makes the start for Arizona in the second game of the three-game series. Since being recalled from Triple-A Reno on May 29, Bradley ranks fourth in the NL in strikeouts. Nike Air Max 270 Negras Mujer .

Ivy Slaughter made it nine straight to start the second quarter, and Florida State led 46-22 at the half.Florida State, which lost 78-76 to UConn on Monday, made 8 of 11 shots in the third quarter to push the lead to 74-38.

LONDON -- The rebranded FIFA Council lost its first member because of a scandal. Womens Brazil Jerseys .Wolfgang Niersbach quit the ruling body on Friday after losing an appeal against a ban from soccer in relation to Germanys 2006 World Cup bid.The FIFA ethics committee imposed a one-year ban this year after finding Niersbach guilty of failing to report findings about possible unethical conduct and conflicts of interest during the bidding process.FIFA said Friday that its appeal committee agreed with the findings of the ethics committee that a one-year ban from taking part in any football-related activity at national and international level was adequate in this case.Niersbach responded to the verdict by announcing he was stepping down from his positions on the rule-making committees at both FIFA and UEFA.The decision is extremely hard for me because I remain of the opinion that the ethics committees judgment is completely excessive, the German said.The 66-year-old Niersbach is the first member of the FIFA Council, which replaced the discredited executive committee in May, to be sanctioned by the ethics division.Niersbach, who ruled out appealing to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, was a vice president of the 2006 World Cup organizing committee, in charge of media and marketing.Swiss federal prosecutors, and German criminal and tax investigators, also have wider ongoing criminal cases into the 2006 World Cup -- a hugely successful tournament at the time which the host nation called its Summer Fairytale.Niersbach is a suspect in a Swiss criminal case investigating fraud, money laundering, criminal mismanagement and misappropriation relating to a payment of 6.7 million euros ($7.3 million) to FIFA in 2005.Niersbach had tried to hold on to his positions of leadership within European and world soccer despite resigning as German federation president in November 2015.---Associated Press writer Ciaran Fahey in Berlin contributed to this report.

MOSCOW -- Russian investigators are pressing graft charges against a former deputy governor of St. Petersburg linked to the construction of a trouble-plagued stadium that is to host World Cup matches in 2018.The Investigative Committee said in a statement on Wednesday that Marat Oganesyan, the citys deputy governor in 2013-2015, has been detained on suspicion of embezzling 50 million rubles ($777,000) on a single contract to supply display screens for the new stadium. However, it could be only part of a much larger corruption case.Investigators said Oganesyan arranged for a friendly subcontractor to win the contract and funneled the money out via shell companies. Investigators said they have filed a motion with a local court to jail Oganesyan pending the probe.One official in the St. Petersburg city hall as well as three employees of the subcontractor are also under investigation in relation to the 69,000-seat stadium, provisionally called the Zenit Arena.Current deputy governor Igor Albin said on Twitter that the total sum of damages at the stadium ... exceeds 700 million rubles ($10.7 million), citing evidence presented to the city governments construction department.No external events will influence the construction of the Zenit Arena now: the budget for the construction is balanced and everything that is needed has been bought, Albin added.Wednesdays announcement came amid a blitz of corruption-related arrests and investigations in Russia. Late Monday, Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev was dettained over an alleged $2 million bribe, while Wednesday also saw reports of investigations at a state technology firm and a helicopter manufacturer. Fagner Jersey. The St. Petersburg stadium has taken almost a decade to build, prompting Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to publicly call it disgraceful. The stadium, which is to host a 2018 World Cup semifinal match, is set to cost more than $600 million. Until the ruble dropped sharply in value in 2014 against the backdrop of international sanctions and a low oil price, the same ruble budget was worth more than $1 billion, making it one of the most expensive soccer stadiums in history.The St. Petersburg City Hall in July fired the general contractor over repeated delays and cost overruns, also saying that authorities have gone to the police because it has allocated $39 million for the construction which has been unaccounted-for. Later than month President Vladimir Putin issued a special decree, ordering officials in St. Petersburg to speed up the construction.FIFA expects Zenit Arena to be delivered in December so that it is ready to host the Confederations Cup next year.There have also been several deaths of workers during construction. In the past 12 months, three have died in accidents, and investigators said Tuesday a North Korean man working on the stadium had died of an apparent heart attack in a workers communal area at the stadium.

Williams technical director Pat Symonds says he is not aware of a loophole in next years regulations that is capable of giving a team an advantage similar to the one Brawn GP had in 2009. Hydro Flask Australia .Brawn GP managed to win the title in its single year of competition, despite limited testing and a modest budget compared to its rivals. The team gained a significant advantage by interpreting the rules around the rear of the car differently to allow for a double-decked diffuser producing more rear downforce. Only Toyota and Williams did the same, but came up with less effective solutions.Although several other teams were aware of the loophole that allowed the double diffuser, they opted to take a literal interpretation of the regulations and started the season with a single-deck diffuser. When the FIA conceded that the double diffuser was allowed under the regulations, all teams came up with their own versions -- albeit retrofitted to their original designs.With wider tyres, wider cars and new dimensions for the diffuser, front wing and rear wing, 2017 presents a bigger overhaul of the regulations than the 2009 changes, but Symonds says he is not aware of a loophole with the same potential as the double diffuser.2009 was slightly different, he said. There was a huge discrepancy between the teams but largely because there was a somewhat twisted use of semantics to interpret a regulation that made a fantastic difference.Now that may happen again -- if it does, were in trouble because we havent seen it -- but if everything is equal, and were all interpreting the rules in a similar way, then okay, thats one thing. 2009 was different because there was this interpretation [around the double diffuser] and at Renault we asked the question could we do this and we were told no. Later it transpired the FIA said we asked the question in the wrong way -- Ive never quite understood it -- but yeah, we missed it and it was hard to get back.It was quite interesting, those of us who didnt have the double diffuser, we had half our crew in Paris arguing against it and the other half busily designing it! The week after the court of appeal, we were in China with a double diffuser. We didnt start the development after the court of the appeal, we started that a long while before.Symonds said trying to find a different interpretation of the rules has become a key part of modern Formula One car design.Thats something that is part of our jobs and I think some teams are very aggressive at it and very good at it, more so, for example, that we are at Williams. We seem to be working flat-out just doing what we need to do, but I know that other teams do have people with that fundamental job -- to look at everyone elses cars and see what they can see thats wrong with them and then look at the rules over and over again to see how you can exploit them.But when I say exploit, I dont mean cheat or anything like that, I mean just making sure that, coming back to semantics [of the rules], they think I know thats what he [the rule maker] meant, but whats he said?. Thats what it comes down to, and quite often they are not the same thing. Hydro Flask Clearance . In what the team had called a retirement, Ryan said Thursday that he is resigning as chief executive of the Rangers in a move effective at the end of this month. Hydro Flask Straw Lid 32 Oz . To the surprise of many, it isnt the Wolverines but their in-state rivals the Michigan State Spartans. http://www.hydroflaskaustralia.com/wide-mouth.html .Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. Guard play wins in March by consistently passing tests all season.No. 17 Saint Marys and Dayton are driven by dynamic guards setting the table, which could make for a riveting Saturday afternoon (2 p.m. ET) meeting with two of the nations leading mid-major programs match up at UD Arena.Its a hostile venue few volunteer to visit because of the frenetic pace and style of play encountered, as coach Archie Miller pointed out recently.We had a lot of things fall through that prevented us from really moving faster, Miller said of the scheduling oddity that brought the reigning West Coast Conference champion to Ohio. The thing we wanted to do the best was secure a series this year starting at home with a bona-fide NCAA tournament team. We were able to get that later than we wanted.Dayton returns the favor next season with a visit to the 3,500-seat home of the Gaels.For the Flyers, who are knocking on the door in the AP poll, the game could be meaningful, but Millers rotation is down two key players from an athletic frontcourt. That trusts even more of the burden on battle-tested backcourt mates Scoochie Smith and Charles Cooke.Flyers forwards Josh Cunningham and Kendall Pollard are sidelined indefinitely and Miller has used sophomore forward Sam Miller and junior guard Darrell Davis for increased minutes to stretch his rotation.The Gaels are fighting for the type of consistent national prominence Archie Miller and the Flyers -- whose senior class stands 17 wins shy of the school record for victories by one class -- have achieved. Randy Bennett, the all-time wins leader at Saint Marys College, has driven thhe program to consistent success even as Gonzaga lords over the West Coast Conference. Water Bottle Hydro Flask 24 oz Standard Mouth Olive. The 2016-17 program is chasing an NCAA Tournament appearance after missing the field despite 29 wins last season. The engine at both ends of the court is point guard Emmett Naar. He controls the offense and dominates the ball for a club averaging only 6.0 turnovers per game. Saint Marys relies on balanced scoring and perimeter shooting. Keeping the tempo in their favor wont be easy against Daytons in-your-shirt pressing defense.Naar believes the difference in this years team is depth. Even in scoring 110 points to get to 2-0 on Wednesday night in pounding Prairie View A&M, Naar was focused on balance.I dont think anyone scored 20, which is pretty good, Naar added. Having a deep bench like that is amazing. For the other team its more guys to worry about, more guys to scout. It just adds a lot to our team.The only previous meeting between these teams was a Dayton win in 1957. But Bennett brought his 2013 team to this venue for the 2013 tournament play-in game.All youve got to do is look them up. Theyve had great success. (Bennett) does a great job. They return just about everybody from a team a year ago that won the regular-season WCC, said Archie Miller.Up next for SMC are games against San Jose State and UAB before the Nov. 30 visit to Pac-12 neighbor Stanford.Dayton plays Nebraska at 8:30 p.m. Thanksgiving night in the first round Wooden Legacy tournament in Anaheim, Calif. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Black Jerseys China NFL Jerseys White Discount NFL Jerseys Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2020 ' ' '

MILWAUKEE -- John Hensons tip-in at the buzzer gave the Milwaukee Bucks a 110-108 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night, their first of the season. Nike Epic React Flyknit Pink Australia .Rashad Vaughn scored a career-high 22 points, including six 3-pointers, for Milwaukee. Giannis Antetokounmpo added 21 points and 11 rebounds. He scored all of his points in the paint, including seven dunks.Vaughn, who surpassed his previous career high of 12, hit consecutive 3-pointers that gave Milwaukee a seven-point lead late in the fourth quarter. But after Matthew Dellavedova missed a driving layup, Bojan Bogdanovic nailed a 3-pointer to tie the score with 11.6 seconds remaining, setting up Hensons heroics.Bogdanovics 26 points led the Nets, who made just 11 of 35 3-point attempts.The Nets played without oft-injured starting center Brook Lopez, who rested after logging 26 minutes and scoring 25 points on Friday night in a home win over Indiana.TIP INSNets: The team plans to closely monitor Lopez, who has had three surgeries on his right foot. This doesnt mean that he wont play back-to-backs the rest of the year, coach Kenny Atkinson said. We will look at what is best for him and the team. We want peak performance for the long term. . G Greivis Vasquez left the game in the first half with a sore right ankle and didnt return.Bucks: After missing the season opener with a sprained left ankle, Tony Snell made his first appearance with the Bucks since being acquired in an Oct. 17 trade that sent Michael Carter-Williams to Chicago.

Pedro scored from a pass by Lionel Messi in the 33rd minute and added two more goals in the 47th and 72nd after Valdes saved his second penalty in four days following his stop in Wednesdays 4-0 over Ajax in the Champions League. Lewis Hamilton was left questioning when Nico Rosbergs run of good luck will come to an end after the German benefitted from a Red Bull strategy blunder to consolidate second in Brazil.Rosberg was passed by Max Verstappen for second position after the final restart but soon reclaimed the position when the Red Bull driver pitted for intermediates. That turned out to be the wrong decision as the rain intensified, forcing Verstappen to pit again -- though his charge from 16th to third suggested he could have finished higher.The result means Rosberg now just needs to finish on the podium in Abu Dhabi to claim the title and Hamilton was baffled to hear Red Bull got its strategy so wrong in the heavy rain. The German driver avoided race-ending collisions at Turn 1 in Malaysia -- where Hamiltons engine failed while leading -- and in Mexico despite making contact with other cars.When Sky Sports put it to Hamilton that Rosberg had an element of good fortune on his side again in Brazil, Hamilton said: Unbelievabble, when will it end? Red Bull made such a big mistake with that call. Nike Pegasus 35 Australia. When the team called me and said, People are starting to pit for inters, Im like, Theyre crazy, there is no way it is going to last, and they are going to have to pit again. Thats what they did and it is a shame, but there is nothing I can do about that.Verstappen still had a great race, and got back up to third, but it would be good if they made some good calls at the next race.Hamilton turned in a dominant drive from pole position to win on Sunday, leading every lap of a rain-delayed race to move second on the all-time list of race wins. The reigning world champion later said he never felt threatened by Rosberg in second.After the race, Verstappen and Red Bull boss Christian Horner expressed doubts Hamilton would have been beatable even without the strategy mistake given his dominant pace . Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Black Jerseys China NFL Jerseys White Discount NFL Jerseys Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2020 ' ' '

Thailands Ariya Jutanugarn opened up a two-shot lead at the Ricoh Womens British Open after a six-under par 66 in the third round. Hydro Flask 24 OZ Sale .The 20-year-old, at 16 under, is closing in on the 19-under Womens British Open record with 18 holes to play.She extended her bogey-free run to 33 holes with four birdies in an impressive outward nine of 32 on the Marquess Course at Woburn and a controlled 34, picking up two further shots, coming back, saw her overtake South Koreas Mirim Lee, who led after the first and second rounds.Lee shot a 69, with just one bogey at the third, and is three clear of American Mo Martin, with Scotlands Catriona Matthew one further behind after struggling on the back nine to card a 71.I feel a lot more comfortable, especially today, said Jutanugarn, who won three times in four weeks on the LPGA Tour in May after missing out on her first major title two months earlier at the 2016 ANA Inspiration, having held a two-stroke lead with three holes remaining only to close with a trio of bogeys to finish fourth.I think I know how to play under pressure -- I have to focus on and focus on what is under my control.Jutanugarn has a quirky pre-shot routine in which she makes herself smile before addressing the ball.I really want to try to be relaxed before each shot, she told BBC Sport.I feel whatever it is to make me happy and the easy one is to smile. Hydro Flask PNW Collection Sale . It might not have mattered. While the Dodgers are preparing for the playoffs, the Padres showed their future has promise behind two rookies. Hydro Flask 18 OZ Sale . A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain. http://www.hydroflaskwaterbottleuk.com/hydro-flask-with-straw-uk.html . Belfort (24-10) needed just 77 seconds to down Henderson in the headlining bout of Saturdays "UFC Fight Night: Belfort vs. Henderson" event at Goiania Arena in Goiania, Brazil. The fight served as a rematch of the pairs 2006 meeting, which Henderson won by decision. By the end of this week -- when the severity of the hamstring, groin, knee, and shoulder injuries suffered in Week 2 crystallizes -- fantasy owners may only have one or two players lost for a significant amount of time.While this may seem like good news, its actually going to create a messy set of logic games on the waiver wire.---THE INJURY REPORTTake Jonathan Stewarts hamstring injury, for instance. Stewart owners are going to have to decide whether to add Fozzy Whitaker (who had 131 total yards filling in for Stewart) or Cameron Artis-Payne (who has been a healthy scratch the past two weeks, but more neatly fits the lead back profile). And even if an owner successfully claims the correct back, theres Mike Tolbert stealing touchdowns -- followed by the possibility of Stewart being healthy enough to play. Once thats all settled, a fundamental fantasy dilemma remains: Do you let go of a potential star whos off to a slow start (someone like Titans wideout Rishard Matthews) for an iffy player with a new opportunity?This is going to be an issue throughout fantasy football.Adrian Petersons knee injury appears serious enough to keep him out for a significant amount of time, and while Jerick McKinnon seems like the obvious backup, it was Matt Asiata getting six carries in Mondays win -- McKinnon got two. In an odd twist, Petersons wife said after the game that hell be OK and was walking on the injured knee, according to a tweet from Larry Fitzgerald, Sr., a prominent member of the Minneapolis-area media and the father of the Arizona wide receiver.---MORE SIGNIFICANT INJURIESIn Detroit, Ameer Abdullahs foot injury opens the door for either second-year running back Zach Zenner or rookie Dwayne Washington. Zenner has been a healthy scratch the last two weeks, while Washington had 56 total yards Sunday, most of them on two big plays. Washington may quietly be the most intriguing add of the week.In San Diego, a Danny Woodhead injury turns all eyes to... Kenneth Farrow? The rookie caught 74 passes over four years at the University of Houston, and is the closest thing the Chargers have to a Woodhead-style pass-catching back. Expect the Chargers -- if Woodhead is out -- to get creative with their playmakers, like Travis Benjamin and Dontrelle Inman.---A BRIEF INTERMISSION TO LOOK AT ACTUAL PERFORMANCESBrowns receiver Corey Coleman built on his Week 1 momentum with a Week 2 full-on explosion, catching five passes on eight targets for 104 yards and two touchdowns. 21 oz Ombre Hydro Flask Sport Cap Standard Mouth Black. . He is available in 38 percent of CBSSports.com leagues. But, a fun fact: Terrelle Pryor had more targets from new starter Josh McCown (who, naturally, also may be hurt).Will Fuller also put forth a 104-yard game -- his second 100-yard game in a row -- to prove his legitimacy as Houstons No. 2 receiver and confirm a fantasy-friendly rapport with Brock Osweiler.Willie Snead (five catches on eight targets, 54 yards and a TD) and Stefon Diggs (nine catches, 11 targets, 182 yards, TD) continued to remind us that their 2015 breakouts werent flukes. Diggs, especially, looked like a bona fide NFL superstar Sunday night, with a series of deft moves and cuts against Green Bay.The Steelers had a value shift at wide receiver, as Sammie Coates (available in 81 percent of CBSSports.com leagues) hauled in 97 yards on two receptions, while last weeks waiver wire darling, Eli Rogers, managed just one catch for 9 yards.Titans rookie Taj Sharpe finished with an unimpressive four catches for 33 yards, but received a team-high seven targets, so he isnt a drop candidate just yet. In the same game, Lions wideout Golden Tate managed just two catches for 13 yards, but they came on nine targets. While Tate has been a bit of a bust thus far, he has 16 targets on the season -- more than Eric Decker, Allen Hurns, or Travis Benjamin.---WE NOW RETURN TO YOUR REGULARLY-SCHEDULED INJURY UPDATESJimmy Garoppolos shoulder injury and Tom Bradys impending return will create a messy window for the Patriots in Week 3 (a Thursday night game) and Week 4, as their only healthy, non-suspended quarterback is rookie Jacoby Brissett. Expect to hear names like T.J. Yates and Ryan Lindley thrown around, but expect Brissett to start.Arian Foster (backup: Jay Ajayi), Thomas Rawls (backup: Christine Michael) and Doug Martin (backup: probably Charles Sims, maybe Jacquizz Rodgers) also suffered injuries, but the extent wont be known until later this week.And it would be wise to keep an eye on Brandon Marshalls status. While hes been known to play through injury, a possible MCL issue could sideline him and bring Quincy Enunwa up wide receiver rankings for Week 3.---This column was provided to The Associated Press by the Fantasy Sports Network, http://FNTSY.com. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Black Jerseys China NFL Jerseys White Discount NFL JerseysStitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2020 ' ' '

RIO DE JANEIRO -- The Olympic wind gods held their breath, and then exhaled all at once. Cheap Florian Thauvin Jersey .First there was too little wind, and then too much.Almost as if someone had flipped a switch, a strong wind from the southwest blew across the Rio de Janeiro Games sailing courses late Monday afternoon, causing mayhem and postponing the medal race in the womens Laser Radial.Boats swamped on the ocean courses and even on Guanabara Bay, where the Laser Radial fleet hoped to get in its medal race before officials decided it was too windy. It was postponed until Tuesday.The fleet was scheduled to sail at 1 p.m., followed by the mens Laser at 2. Both fleets stayed on the beach for several hours because there was no wind. The mens race was postponed until Tuesday, and the womens race was on the cusp of being postponed when the wind rose. The boats went out into the whitecaps but with gusts hitting 25 knots, officials called it off.Everybody expected it for tonight so it came a bit early, said Marit Bouwmeester of the Netherlands, who has an eight-point lead and is looking to upgrade the silver medal she won at the 2012 London Games.Were used to it that we get postponed and wait for wind, but I think nobody thought wed actually get canceled by too much wind, so thats quite funny, she said.One Laser Radial blew over.That was me, offered Irelands Annalise Murphy, who sits in third place and is looking to overcome the disappointment of missing a medal four years ago.Now there will be four medal races on Tuesday: Laser Radial, Laser, mens Finn and the mixed b 17 catamarans.The mens 49er fleet got in three races. New Zealands Peter Burling and Blair Tuke went 2-3-1 to increase their lead over Germanys Erik Heil and Thomas Ploessel. Defending gold medalists Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen of Australia had a good day to jump into third place.Burling said the wind hit 40-45 knots just after the final race ended.The boat was going really fast and there were some beautiful conditions out there, but we got hit pretty hard by a massive squall on the way in, he said. Everyone here is pretty cold and we have a fair bit of work to do on the boats and check them over.Did they stay upright?No, said Burling, who also serves as helmsman of Emirates Team New Zealand in the Americas Cup. We struggled to stay up with just the pole up.Outteridge said the conditions were awesome before the squall hit, giving the fleet some stable racing.When the big wind hit, Outteridge said he and Jensen tied their skiff to the support boat and quickly lowered their sails.As Aussies like to say, the wind was strong enough to blow dogs off chains.We got belted at the end, said Outteridge, helmsman for Swedens Artemis Racing in the Americas Cup. We were pretty fortunate that the race had finished before we were belted. I think everyone has some form of damage to their boats, whether its a bit of wear and tear on the sails, to people probably lost sails out there because it got that windy.We did a very good job of just making sure we didnt get any damage to the boat.In the womens 49erFX, Spains Tamara Echegoyen Dominguez and Berta Betanzos Moro went 4-1-1 to take a four-point lead over New Zealands Alex Maloney and Molly Meech. Its another point back to Brazils Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze.Dominguez said a number of 49erFX skiffs capsized, but not them.Our coach told us to put our main down as fast as possible, she said. Cheap NGolo Kante Jersey .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back. Cheap Adil Rami Jersey . It was the second consecutive win for the Pacers (2-5), who lost their first five preseason games. Jeff Teague led the Hawks (1-5) with 17 points and eight assists and Al Horford had 12 points and seven rebounds. Mike Scott scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half. http://www.cheapfrancesoccerjerseys.com/?tag=cheap-corentin-tolisso-jersey . PAUL, Minn. PHILADELPHIA -- Thanks to a powerful power play fueled by Wayne Simmonds, outstanding goaltending by Steve Mason and the steady progress of 19-year-old rookie defenseman Ivan Provorov, the Philadelphia Flyers carry a six-game winning streak into Thursday nights home game against the Edmonton Oilers.Simmonds is coming off back-to-back two-goal performances and leads the NHL with eight power-play goals. He is tied for third in the NHL with 15 goals.Hes been primarily pretty much a 30-goal scorer, Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said. Hes doing the exact same thing, doing exactly what he has always done. The thing with Simmer is that he doesnt change his game, he doesnt waver. I think you are seeing a very confident player right now, a very competitive player and a very focused player. Hes been very important for our group here especially in the first third of the season and that is going to continue.The Flyers power play has produced more goals this season -- 24 in 28 games -- than any team in the NHL. Claude Giroux is a big reason. He leads the NHL with 15 power-play points.Mason has been the Flyers best player in recent games. He stopped 42 of 44 shots in Tuesday nights 3-2 overtime win against the Florida Panthers, his fifth straight win. Florida recorded 85 shot attempts to the Flyers 51.Mase has been outstanding over the last three weeks, Flyers right winger Jake Voracek said. Sometimes you are going to have hockey games like that but Mase was great and we scored when we needed to.Masons 88 wins as a Flyer moved him past Pelle Lindbergh and into sixth in franchise history. Mason needs six wins to move into third place in franchise history.The Flyers have also received steady play from Provorov, a 19-year-old rookie who picked up an assist and recorded a huge block on a 2-on-1 in overtime on Tuesday night.I think he has done a great job all year long and he is only going to get better, Simmonds said of the 19-year-old rookie. Cheap Nabil Fekir Jersey. If you watch him play he is getting better and better, not every game, but every shift.Provorov will draw the assignment of stopping the Oilers top line of Connor McDavid, Milan Lucic and Leon Draisaitl, who have combined for 30 goals and 78 points this season. McDavid leads the NHL with 36 points and all 11 of his goals have come at even strength.The Flyers likely will try to match the checking line of Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, Chris VandeVelde and Dale Weise against the McDavid line.The Oilers are coming off Tuesday nights 4-3 overtime loss in Buffalo. Jordan Eberle, Lucic (8 goals) and Draisaitl (11 goals) scored for the Oilers (14-10-4) while Cam Talbot made 22 saves.The Oilers blew a one-goal lead late in regulation and lost on a power-play goal in overtime.We did a really good job taking that game over after the first, McDavid told the Edmonton Journal. Started slow, battled back, had the lead and werent really giving up much, especially in the third period. Give them credit. They found a way to get one, get it to overtime and their power play bared down.It comes down to them pulling their goalie and executing and we have to live with that, Oilers coach Todd McLellan said. Thats going to happen in the game, thats going to happen every now and then and its the next 22 seconds when you take a penalty that you dont need to take and that sets you up for a loss.As for projected rosters, Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas is expected to return after missing three games with an illness. Oilers defenseman Dillon Simpson could make his NHL debut. The Flyers activated forward Boyd Gordon and placed Matt Read (upper body injury) on injured reserve. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Black Jerseys China NFL Jerseys White Discount NFL Jerseys Stitched NFL JerseysCheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2020 ' ' '

Set aside the famous last name and the famous failures. Nike Air Force 270 Pas Cher .Forget USC, Tennessee, Oakland.Never mind the truth, the rumors and everything in between.Look at Lane Kiffin for what he is now -- offensive coordinator at Alabama -- and what do you see?Its a messy ruffle of hair, the kind that might have been washed yesterday but most definitely hasnt seen a comb in weeks. Its baggy sweatpants that look borrowed from an offensive linemen, an orange tie when Tennessee comes to town. Its trash talk during practice, pre-emptive touchdown signs, fist pumps and a swaggering Twitter presence, a strange concoction of trolling and random Bitmojis. And its the game to back it up.Its Lane Kiffin, bro genius and quite possibly the best O.C. in college football.The Nick Saban-Lane Kiffin marriage still feels as unorthodox as when it began three years ago, but theres no denying its success. It has produced two playoff berths, a pair of 3,000-yard passers and one national championship. And you know what? Theyre still together, still going strong after all these years. Under the seemingly heavy-handed leadership of Saban, Kiffin has never felt more like himself.I call him a 12-year-old child, said Fresno State offensive coordinator Eric Kiesau, who was Kiffins roommate last year while on staff at Alabama as a consultant.I tell my son, Make sure you brush your teeth. Thats what I did with Lane: Lane, make sure you brush your teeth before we go to work. But hes awesome. Hes light-hearted and all about football and winning games.Kiffin was serious about being a coach even before his playing days were over.At Fresno State, he was destined to be a career backup quarterback. He knew it, his coaches knew it. Billy Volek was going to be the starter and some freshman named David Carr had just arrived, so rather than ride the bench his senior season, he decided instead to become a student coach.Pat Hill, who coached 15 seasons at Fresno State, gave Kiffin all the responsibilities of a graduate assistant, working closely with then-offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford.It worked out best for everybody because he was able to, really on a student level, spend a lot of time with those two young quarterbacks and really helped them understand things, Hill said. Volek would go on to play 10 years in the NFL and Carr would become the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2002. He was really sharp at that age. He knew football because of his dad [longtime NFL defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin]. Just a sharp guy.Thus began an odyssey that would make Kiffin an offensive coordinator by age 30, head coach by 32 and unemployed before reaching 40.He clearly had a mind for the game, but maybe not the maturity. From Oakland to Tennessee to USC, there were a series of avoidable missteps. And thats where Saban came in. From Alabamas successful taskmaster, maybe Kiffin could learn a few things. Without the burden of being a head coach, maybe he could rediscover what made him such a hot commodity in the first place.At Alabama, hed reinvent himself, bonding with players in a way that some former coaches were surprised to learn. One such coach thought he was awkward during his USC days because he was trying to act older than he was, positioning himself as an authority figure. That couldnt be further from the truth now. Theres a healthy amount of respect, of course, but there are other interactions that come as natural as trash talk between friends.Hes gonna do that, said tight end O.J. Howard, grinning from ear to ear. Hes going to tell [the defense] what route were running, who hes going to throw it to -- and we still might score on them. Hes that type of coach.Said safety Eddie Jackson, who is thrilled to jaw back and forth: Coach Kiffin is fun, man. He loves the competition.Make no mistake, though, working with world-class athletes helps. First, it was wideout Amari Cooper, who became the focal point of the offense in 2014 and wound up a Heisman Trophy finalist and first-round pick. Then along came Derrick Henry, who convinced Kiffin to run the football to the tune of nearly 400 carries and 2,219 yards last season, earning him only the second Heisman in school history. At the same time, Calvin Ridley emerged as one of the best freshmen receivers in the country, racking up more than 1,000 yards despite not starting a game until four weeks into the season.Everyone knew Kiffin could call a game, but he has raised eyebrows at Alabama. When Saban hired Kiesau to go all-in on the no-huddle, it was as if Kiffin was given the toy car he was meant to drive his entire life.Kiesau helped convert Tedford, Steve Sarkisian and Charlie Weis to the no-huddle, but none took to it as quickly as Kiffin. During the first scrimmage, Kiesau said he looked at Kiffin and said, Lane, this is the best thing for you.Hes really, really sharp, Kiesau said. He knows what hes doing. And to be quite honest, going no-huddle and going fast works for him better. Because when youre a playcaller you get into a rhythm and its more a reactionary mode, whereas when you huddle you have more time to think and you can overthink yourself.Whats more, it has allowed Kiffin to take greater control during games. Rather than let the quarterback audible at the line of scrimmage, Kiffin can do it himself from the sideline using play cards and hard signals.Essentially, the no-huddle creates a video-game feel where the coordinator is controlling the quarterback. Kiesau, who called it the magic behind the offense, said that when you have good players, You sit there and just press F1 or Y or whatever you want and boom! The result: Blake Sims transformed from a former part-time receiver to the schools record-holder for passing yards in a single season, and Jake Coker went from an overlooked fifth-year senior to a 3,000-yard passer and national champion.That guy on game day is for real, Kiesau said of Kiffin. He has a good feel for the game.Pressed for a specific instance, he said, Im telling you, it was every Saturday.When we first started doing this, in my mind, I said, We havent practiced this, we havent practiced this. Then the guy would go do it and wed rip it. I cant tell you how many of those touchdowns to Calvin Ridley when we threw a bomb over their head he saw the safety cheat down and said, All right, were going to do this, and literally drew it up in the dirt on the sideline with the guys and he would tell them, This is going to be a touchdown. The safety is going to cheat down and its going to be a touchdown. And sure enough, it happens.He added: Wed look at each other and laugh like, Practice is so overrated.Maybe the most visible evidence of Kiffins brilliance came during the national championship. Clemson was playing a lot of man defense and Kiffin noticed their linebackers were slow moving across the formation. So he put a tight end on the right off the ball and let him slide left up the field. Calling screens and naked slides, the linebackers couldnt find the tight end by the time the ball was snapped. They couldnt catch Howard, who went from a fourth or fifth option in the passing game during the season to hauling in 208 yards and two touchdowns during Alabamas 45-40 win in Arizona.Said one SEC defensive assistant coach: The games are slow motion for Lane Kiffin on the sideline. Hes able to see the defense, call the play, help the [QB]. I think hes one of the finest coordinators in all of football. Hes proven it.One more SEC championship.One more remarkable turn at quarterback.One more season like the last two and Kiffin could be done with his career rehab at Alabama, only 42 years old and entering what should be his prime coaching years. Some athletic director, whether its at a Power 5 or Group of 5 school, wont be able to resist the opportunity to hand him the keys to a program.But while this period in Kiffins career could be nearing its end, he appears to be content where he is. Addressing the media last Sunday, he said being at Alabama has been a very different two years.I think of it kind of like the players who come here: freshman, sophomore, junior, he said. Continue to learn, continue to grow under Coach.And continue to have fun.More than anything else, Kiffin seems to be having fun at a place not typically associated with such pleasures. He has offset Sabans scowl with a childish grin like the one that showed up when he was asked about his approach to Twitter. Kiffin said that, in fact, he did not run his own social media accounts. Coach Saban runs it, he deadpanned, prompting a sea of laughter.He was baited with questions about USC and wouldnt bite. He said he hadnt thought about playing his old employer, said it doesnt matter.Its as if he wasnt told that the college football world had given up on him when he was fired by USC in 2013. Either that or he has forgotten all about it.During Alabamas team picture Sunday, Saban and every other coach on the staff wore white sneakers. Kiffin wore red. After the photographer was finished, he was the only coach to untuck his shirt as he left the field.Hes a character, Kiesau said. Thats his deal; he doesnt care.So call him what you want -- a failure as a head coach, a cocky playcaller, a bro. But be sure to call him a brilliant offensive coordinator while youre at it, because theres no denying that.Nike Air More Money Pas Cher . As the crowd erupted, Davis knocked the ball off the glass and back into his hands. With 1:14 to go in overtime, Davis sixth block also became his 17th rebound. That, along with his 32 points -- which tied a career high -- proved too much for Denver to overcome, and the Pelicans held on for their third straight victory, 111-107 on Sunday night. Air Max 270 Homme Blanche . -- Five former Kansas City Chiefs players who were on the team between 1987 and 1993 filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming the team hid and even lied about the risks of head injuries during that time period when there was no collective bargaining agreement in place in the NFL. http://www.chaussuresportairmax.fr/ . After a lengthy wait, persistent rain finally forced the postponement of the Nationals game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night. The teams, and a few thousand fans, waited nearly four hours from the 7:05 scheduled start time before an announcement was made shortly before 11 p. In a dark, enclosed school gymnasium, nestled away in the shires of England, Imran Khan changed his game forever.A little bit smaller than a tennis court, with wooden climbing bars adorning the walls and criss-crossing the windows, it was the type of sports hall commonly found in schools up and down the country. And it was here, a few yards from the boarding house that he would call home for almost a year, that the 18-year-old Imran spent much of the winter of 1971-72, learning to bowl fast.Spurred on by his nightmare Test debut against England at Edgbaston earlier that year, Imran began changing his bowling action. There was to be no quick fix; only a complete dismantling and rearranging job would accomplish his wishes. An unrecognisable metamorphosis: from a whirlwind of arms and legs into an elegant, rhythmical rage.In the summer of 1971, months prior to his arrival at the Royal Grammar School Worcester (RGS), Imran had been under Worcestershire County Cricket Clubs care, turning out for their 2nd XI. It had resulted in little success on the pitch, leaving some of the senior players to remind Imran of his rawness.When he first came to Worcestershire, he was a young lad, says Glenn Turner, the former New Zealand captain who played for Worcestershire across three decades and was, according to Imrans autobiographies, unimpressed by his bowling. I tried to encourage him to concentrate a bit more on accuracy and length as he was spraying it all over while trying to bowl at pace, and he didnt heed that advice because he wanted to be a fast bowler.Six 2nd XI fixtures filled up Imrans time following the end of Pakistans tour in 1971. A five-wicket haul against Nottinghamshire and a score of 110 out of 222 at Derbyshire were standout performances in an otherwise tepid introduction. Enough was shown, however, to persuade the club to include him in their side when the touring Indians were welcomed to Worcestershires New Road ground. Imran made 0 (run out), 15, and failed to strike with the ball.When he arrived at RGS in September 1971, as part of the agreement with Worcestershire CCC, the extraordinary spectacle of a Test player wowed his fellow pupils. For Imran, a place at either Oxford or Cambridge University beckoned if he could gain the grades required. Only the small matter of passing his A levels in the space of nine months needed to be overcome.Bowling fast continued to occupy Imrans mind, though. Overhearing two Pakistan team-mates questioning his ability following a tour game in Scotland had troubled him. I was so angry and humiliated that I vowed that I would prove them wrong; I would go back to the drawing board and sort out my bowling action, he revealed in his first autobiography, Imran. As hard as he tried, the pace he yearned for eluded him. Longing for Pakistan, and the boredom of rain-filled winter days stuck inside revising, didnt help matters. Imran felt homesick and really began to miss Lahore and family, as he later admitted in his 1988 autobiography, All Round View.The breakthrough came in the form of John Parker, a young New Zealand batsman who had joined Worcestershire at the same time as Imran. Parker offered to help Imran remodel his action, and his resolve was typified by the tale of him paying his own passage to England in search of a cricketing career. He possessed the will required to thrive, and in Imran he saw someone with the same hard-working values. With only a year separating the two, a rapport was struck up, the pair rooming together in club lodgings above a fish-and-chip shop during the summer of 71, prior to Imrans school commitments.A keen pupil of technique, and as Imran noted, a walking, talking MCC coaching book, Parker further broadened his knowledge by taking a coaching course at Lilleshall, a tiny village lost in the Birmingham countryside. Parker learnt much there under the brilliant coaching of course leader Harry Crabtree, who helped Parker reassess and refine his own methods, which would prove so useful to Imran.Imran had an action like Jeff Thomson, Parker, now a sports consultant, recalls. His right leg would go behind his left foot and with his back facing the batsman, it put a huge strain on the back, left hip and left knee. We spent many an evening at the school gymnasium practising and practising. It was a basic technique, centred on getting your right foot parallel to the bowling crease. This helps to get you side-on, and then you can coil yourself up while in the air.Then, when you land and transfer momentum from your run-up, you propel your weight onto your left foot, and as youre doing that, your arm comes over and you enter a fairly smooth follow-through. It wasnt very difficult to do - not difficult at all for a guy like Imran.Measuring less than a full cricket wicket, the school building they practised in necessitated a stunting of Imrans run-up. Practising only with tennis balls, and going against the housemasters wishes of using the facility for such purposes, Imran trained frequently, focusing on leg movement, rotation, and his follow-through. The determination was well rewarded. The jump that characterised his bowling was born. Bounding in, hair bouncing with each stride, Imran would jump and twist side-on, his front knee raised high before it was planted back down just before releasing the ball. Thus he stamped his authority on proceedings, sending tremors through many a batsman.Parker would attend training whenever possible to advise, but it was a fellow boarder at the school who accompanied Imran most often. Rabi Mehta, born in Kenya, was entering his final year when Imran showed up to start his studies at RGS. A keen cricketer himself, and part of the school team, Mehta instantly bonded with Imran. While Imran was described as distant by some of his peers - and it seems he held back from many - Mehta had no such problem connecting with him.It helped that we lived together, Mehta, who would go on to work for NASA and also research cricket-ball aerodynamics, concedes. I shared a room with my cousin, and Imran was nearby. Imran loved Indian music, and wed often find our tape recorder had gone missing, invariably into his room. Hed play Mohammed Rafi on repeat.The two could regularly be found in the school gym either playing cricket - rules dictating the ball had to be hit along the ground at all times - or working out in the basement, which also housed weight equipment. There, Imran would concentrate on a series of exercises to strengthen his back. His favourite involved lying flat, face against the floor, then lifting his head and legs simultaneously. This practice would become a ritual of his, ultimately helping to prevent injuries that affected many fast bowlers later in their careers.Importantly for Imran, the experience was an enjoyable one. Self-motivation was one thing, but to complete the task with well-natured competition and an element of fun made it all the more manageable. Air Max 98 Gundam Pas Cher. Imran didnt understand the rules of rugby. Not that the teacher who drafted him into the team minded. They were simply happy for the well-built addition bolstering their ranks. Deployed on the wing, his natural athleticism and quick feet made for a mesmerising sight. It also meant he received fewer crunching tackles.He had no idea, they just put him in, Mehta says, chuckling gently during our phone interview. It may have been the first time we played against another school, but he was thrown the ball and didnt know what to do with it. Everyone was shouting for him to run forward. He did well in the end. He liked it for the fitness.The slurry of turned-over mud created by the rugby soon emerged as lush green grass when cricket was back on the school agenda. Nets passed Imran by, his education and practice with Worcestershire taking precedence. He committed to school matches where possible, although atrocious weather reduced these opportunities. Whenever unavailable, Mehta - Imrans school opening bowling partner - gleefully stepped in to fulfil autograph requests by players from other schools. No one ever questioned him. Few, if any, had previously seen Imran, and Mehta ensured the scribbled signature was illegible.It was generally agreed by school team-mates that Imran played within himself, only unleashing his best when provoked. It took a lot to rile him, remembers Martin Claytor, who opened the batting with Imran at RGS. However, on one occasion a batsman edged him behind, didnt walk, and later admitted hed nicked it. Imran proceeded to bowl extremely fast.Despite Imrans shy exterior, his school team-mates found him pleasant to deal with and open to passing on advice when prompted. He even joined in with the teams trips to the local pub - milk being his tipple of choice. A central figure by the end of the season, Imran finished top of his schools bowling (7.50) and batting (58.80) averages.Walking up to Parker, Imran smiled wide. It was a knowing, accepting kind of grin. The year was 1974 and Parker had scored 108 for Worcestershire against Oxford University (and had been dismissed by Imran for 25 in the second innings). Decked out in his Blues, and now captaining the student side after achieving the grades necessary to earn a spot at Oxford, Imran extended his hand to Parker and let out a congratulatory laugh.Not much had changed. But everything was different. Now in his second year at Oxford, Imran split his time between academia and playing for Worcestershire in the latter half of the season. No longer feeling isolated, he enjoyed the trappings of adulthood, though his youthful gusto was never far away. Every time Imran came back, Parker says, he would go, JP, JP, come to the nets, Im getting faster. And hed bounce me constantly. No let up.Taller and stronger, Imran desired more responsibility. Impressive university form saw him recalled to the national team for their tour of England in 74. His international commitments that summer - he featured in three Tests and two ODIs - meant he only played a handful of times in one-day competitions for Worcestershire. The club managed without, winning the County Championship for the third time in their 109-year history. Spearheaded by the batting might of Turner and Ron Headley, and strengthened lower down the order by Basil DOliveira, Worcestershire pipped Hampshire to the title.Imran returned the following year, with a point to prove. He played consistently in the countys first team, making 22 appearances across all formats. Previous concerns from team-mates about his wayward bowling were calmed; the roaring inswingers of old were now shackled from their wild, uncontrollable contortions.Worcestershire failed to retain their league championship, though, finishing tenth. Imran was left frustrated, keen to win silverware himself. Its not that easy for people to come into an English county team, Parker contends. Because we had to give up a lot to go there, and we were very committed. Some of the English werent as committed. It was on their front doorstep.Tensions came to the fore during the off season as discussions over wages at the club intensified. Imran, not for the first time, was dismissive of the accommodation provisions, too. We had a lot of unrest at Worcestershire over the winter of 1975 and some players got released as a result of it, says Phil Neale, a young player at the time, who went on to captain the county to a further two Championship titles.Regardless of the fallout, Imrans improving ability ensured the team and spectators were won over. He hit a rapid 70-odd against Warwickshire [in a one-day game in 1976], says former Worcestershire bowler Paul Pridgeon. And I was there thinking, My God, this lad can really play.Wisden didnt hold back their admiration of Imrans 76 form either, recording that, by scoring a century and taking thirteen wickets in an innings victory over Lancashire, he was identified as an all-rounder of world-class possibilities. Excitement shook Worcestershire that year. Thrilling performances from Turner, Alan Ormrod, Norman Gifford, John Inchmore and Imran propelled the county to a domestic 55-over final at Lords. There they met a snarling Kent, a team built on crushing top-order batting and savvy bowling, led by the smart Mike Denness. Imran had bowled well, smothering the early onslaught, but then struggled during the chase. With both openers dismissed early and DOliveira down the order due to an injury, Imran fell to Derek Underwood for 12, caught on the boundary when going for a hook. Worcestershire were all out for 193, a galling end to an impressive cup run.By the end of 1976, the demanding fixture list, disagreements over pay, and occasional misunderstandings had taken their toll on Imran. I think county cricket gives you a perfect cricketing education. However, after two or three years it does you damage, Imran would say in the 1993 documentary Leading From the Front. Its just not possible to retain your enthusiasm playing six or seven days a week. Left dissatisfied at the burden the schedule put on players, preventing most from performing at their peak, Imran felt it resulted in the passion being zapped from the game.Passion was essential for Imran. Its what convinced him to depart Worcestershire for the livelier surroundings of Sussex in 1977. Its the desire that drove him to start the process of altering his bowling action into the electrifying force that would light up matches. Its the emotion that made him spend all those nights in the confined gymnasium, changing his future. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Black Jerseys China NFL Jerseys White Discount NFL Jerseys Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2020' ' '
