WI eye win after bowlers force England collapse

Posted on

first_imgSOUTHAMPTON, England (CMC):Speedsters Shannon Gabriel and Alzarri Joseph rocked England in the final session with fiery spells as the hosts collapsed spectacularly losing five wickets for 30 runs in a nightmare 75-ball period, to leave West Indies with an excellent chance of winning the opening Test.Cruising at 249 for three late on the penultimate day with Zak Crawley and captain Ben Stokes well entrenched, England suddenly lost their way in the face of Gabriel and Joseph’s hostility, and limped to the close on 284 for eight – a lead of 170 runs heading into today’s pivotal final day at the Ageas Bowl.Gabriel finished with three for 62, while Joseph claimed two for 40 to rescue a day, which seemed headed England’s way from the outset.Part-time off-spinner Roston Chase had earlier taken two for 71, his wickets coming in the first and second sessions respectively.Zak Crawley, in only his fifth Test, top-scored with a career-best 76, while opener Dom Sibley chipped in with exactly 50 – his second half-century in his seventh Test.For the second time in the match, Stokes got a start but failed to carry on when he perished for 46, while opener Rory Burns hit 42 in a 72-run opening stand with Sibley, which got England away to an excellent start once they resumed on 15 without loss.Having won the first session to be 79 for one at lunch and also dominated the second to be 168 for three at tea, England seemed poised to bat West Indies out of the game in the final session, especially with Crawley and Stokes taking control. The 22-year-old Crawley, unbeaten on 38 at tea, struck eight fours off 127 balls while the left-handed Stokes, yet to score at the final interval, faced 79 deliveries and blasted six fours.Boundaries flowed at the start of the final session, Crawley punching Chase to the ropes at cover to move into the 40s before collecting two more fours through point in the bowler’s next over – the first a cut and the second a reverse sweep – to bring up his second Test fifty. BOWLING INEFFECTIVE Chase, bowling in tandem with part-time off-spinner Kraigg Brathwaite, proved ineffective and even when Gabriel and the wicket-less Kemar Roach were handed the second new ball after 11 overs, there was no immediate success for West Indies.But captain Jason Holder quickly rung the changes, introducing himself for Gabriel and struck in his second over, removing Stokes to a catch by Shai Hope at the first of two gullies, the left-hander sparring at a widish ball that lifted.Stokes’ dismissal opened the floodgates for West Indies and the tide of the game shifted. In the following over, Crawley chipped a return catch to Joseph and Jos Buttler perished four overs later, bowled off the inside edge to Joseph for nine after being reprieved by DRS in the previous over when he was adjudged lbw to Holder.With England reeling on 265 for six and just under half-hour left in the day, Holder summoned Gabriel again and he provided two key strikes in the second over of his new spell.

Les Miles’ players have his back after rough week

Posted on

first_imgBATON ROUGE – Les Miles has rapped with Snoop Dogg for his players.He dances for his players. He tries to make it fun for his players, light. He also has a doghouse waiting for them just in case and the occasional exit sign. And he has their backs, maybe too much sometimes regardless of their arrest records and videos of their wrongdoings.LSU’s football coach wants his players to know he is there for them so that they will win for him. He also wants his players to know he is there for them just because he wants his players to know he is there for them.“He always has our back,” middle linebacker Kendell Beckwith said. “Just about no matter what.”After a weekend of hell and heaven last Oct. 24-25, Miles’ players have his back more than ever. They are there for him.“It was tough seeing him,” LSU freshman tailback Leonard Fournette said, but he didn’t finish the sentence. He was describing how Miles told the team the Friday night before the Ole Miss game last week that his mother Martha, 91, had just died. She had been living in an assisted living center in Baton Rouge and had never fully recovered from a recent fall.Miles had planned to visit her that week, but put it off to the open week that would follow the Ole Miss game.On Friday night, Miles and his wife Kathy were at their son Manny’s high school football game. He is the star quarterback for University High. While at the game, Miles received a call from his offensive coordinator, Cam Cameron, whose son Chris plays for Catholic High along with Miles’ other son Ben. A fullback and linebacker, Ben broke his ankle against McKinley that night. So Les went to the hospital to be with Ben. His season was over. Kathy stayed at Manny’s game.While at the hospital, Miles received another call. His mother had died suddenly.Miles later went to the Cook Hotel, where his team stays on the weekends of home games on the LSU campus. He usually does not talk to his team this late on a Friday night. Players had just finished with their position meetings and were off to their rooms.“We never did that before,” Beckwith said. “I was hoping nobody got in trouble or anything like that. A lot of things were rushing through my head. It never came to my mind that somebody had passed away. It was very emotional because, I mean, all of us love our moms. So we just couldn’t imagine losing our moms like Coach Miles just did.”Miles wept in front of his team. Players had not seen this side of him.Fournette started a new sentence.“That’s a real man,” he said. “His son broke his ankle. Then he doubles back and got the news about his mother, who died. And he still came to see us. That’s a man. We had a heart to heart that night. It was an emotional moment because when he said that, I thought of my mother. And what would I do if I lose my mother?”It was a sleepless night for Miles, who just three years ago lost his sister Ann Hope Browne in a car accident in Addis near Baton Rouge, where she had moved along with Martha Miles after her brother got the LSU job in 2005. While an assistant coach with the Dallas Cowboys in 2000, Miles’ father, Hope “Bubba” Miles, died a few days before a game.“I had a rough night last night,” Miles said after his No. 23-ranked team upset No. 3 and undefeated Ole Miss, 10-7, with a late touchdown and dramatic defense in front of an electric and full Tiger Stadium in yet another memorable game of the Miles era.“Martha Miles, this is a great night, considering. I miss you mom,” he said. Miles still has two brothers, Mark and Eric, his family, and a football team.“We dedicated this game to Miss Martha for coach and for ourselves and for our family,” said Fournette, who gained 113 yards on 23 carries, caught two passes for 41 yards and returned two kickoffs for 57 yards.“Losing a mom is very drastic, and he loved her very much,” said LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings, who threw the game winning touchdown pass to tight end Logan Stokes with 5:07 to play. “But he didn’t want it to be about him. He wanted us to keep being focused on the game. He came in Friday, told us what happened, and obviously, we were very emotional.”But it was all about Miles.“I mean, deep down inside, we hurt for him, and we wanted to go out and do well and get a win for him that night,” said Beckwith, who led the Tigers with 10 tackles, including consecutive stops on third-and-two and fourth-and-1 plays in the final two minutes to halt a drive.“We could all feel for him,” said cornerback Jalen Collins, who broke up three passes. “You know, everybody loves their mom, and just imagine that. Having that type of loss is tough. We all talked about it after he left the meeting. We wanted to win that game for him and for ourselves. We had his back because we knew it was going to be a tough game for him to coach a day after losing your mom. It was emotional for him, and we wanted to make it easier for him.”Miles was hugged dozens of times by players before and after the game. After getting through the purple and gold swarm of fans that descended onto, and engulfed most of, the field for the first time since 2000, LSU’s players gave Miles the game ball.“We just wanted to play for him and play our hearts out,” cornerback Tre’Davious White said. “It brought us together. Even though we were already together, it made us that more tight and behind Coach Miles. We have his back.”And Miles felt it.“I have to be very honest with you, this football team responded very well,” Miles said on the Southeastern Conference teleconference on Wednesday. On Thursday, a funeral was held for Martha Miles in Baton Rouge. The Tigers, now ranked No. 16, will be preparing for a 7 p.m. game Saturday against No. 3 Alabama in Tiger Stadium after a weekend off.“Yeah, there were some extenuating circumstances as we went into that game,” Miles said. “The players certainly added to my ability to deal with personal circumstance.”last_img read more

Saban vs. Meyer Trilogy: Video look back at three games

Posted on

first_imgOhio State coach Urban Meyer vividly remembers the times he’s had to match wits against Nick Saban when coaching at Florida.The Gators and Crimson Tide met three straight seasons. In 2008, Florida beat Alabama in the SEC title game, 31-20, en route to winning a national title. Alabama was undefeated and No. 1 and Florida was No. 2 with one loss.The next season, the Tide turned the tables on the Gators and prevailed 32-13, in the conference championship game en route to completing an undefeated season with a national championship. Both teams were undefeated as Florida was No. 1 and Alabama was No. 2.“The 2008 game was one of great games in college football history, in my opinion, where very evenly matched teams were going back and forth, back and forth,” Meyer said Sunday. “We scored right at the end to take a two-score lead. The second year, that was one of the best teams I’ve very coached against. They handled us pretty good. (Mark) Ingram was the tailback and they just dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides.”Alabama won the rubber match, 31-6, in Tuscaloosa in 2010. Undefeated once again, Alabama was No. 1 and Florida ranked seventh. Four years later, Meyer and Saban will meet again when top-ranked Alabama (12-1) plays fourth-seeded Ohio State (12-1) in the second semifinal game of the College Football Playoff at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on New Year’s Day.Commentary: Meyer equal match to SabanMeyer said he will likely look at the tape of his games against Saban in preparing for the playoff game.“We’ll probably look at the last two,” Meyer said. “Maybe we will because our offense has adapted and changed somewhat, but I always like to go back and see because a lot of times there are some fundamental coverage concepts or front concepts that we’ll look at. That will mostly be on that side of the ball. I’ll check out a little bit of what they did in the past, but that’s about it.”When Meyer does take a peek or long look at those games, below is what he’ll see.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3TjpfOwf_U&w=420&h=315%5D%5Byoutube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZ-5It2FMsA&w=420&h=315%5D%5Byoutube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDrktJxyIsw&w=560&h=315%5Dlast_img read more

Mourinho keen to avoid European slip-up

Posted on

first_imgChelsea manager Jose Mourinho has warned his players that they could easily still end up in the Europe League this season despite being unbeaten in their opening four Champions League group games.The Blues top Group G with eight points but face a tricky away fixture against Schalke next week, before hosting Sporting Lisbon in the final match on December 10.And after only drawing away against Slovenian side Mariobor in their last game in Europe, Mourinho is concerned.AdChoices广告“Chelsea can end in the Europa League, if we lose to Schalke and against Sporting,” he said.“We are not in a position to be worried about other results and teams [potential opponents in the next stage].”Defeats against both sides would mean that the Germans and Portuguese teams would finish above Chelsea if they also win their fixtures against Maribor.But a draw against Sporting would guarantee progress, while a draw with Schalke would almost certainly be good enough because of Chelsea’s superior goal difference.“The first objective is to finish second and go into the last 16,” Mourinho added. “And the second objective is to finish first. We don’t want the third possibility.“When we play Schalke, we are only focused on making sure we do not go to the Europa League.” Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook See also:Chelsea’s Under-18 side see off Arsenal Injury sidelines Chelsea youngster AkeChelsea set to make decision on FabregasNo Arsenal approach for Cech – MourinhoMourinho rules out Chelsea complacencyMourinho: Everyone fit for Schalke gamelast_img read more

Liverpool ‘about to begin talks’ to sign player, transfer considered very…

Posted on

first_imgLiverpool’s links with Nabil Fekir have been something of a whirlwind. First claims came from France that a deal was agreed, and then it quietened down again, and then it was agreed again. L’Equipe have a rather calmer look at the situation in their Monday edition. First off, it’s clear they expect very much Nabil Fekir to leave Lyon this summer, and that’s partly because of the Liverpool interest.With no competition mentioned, Liverpool are therefore the obvious destination, but whereever the player ends up, L’Equipe believe the transfer ‘should’ happen.It’s claimed Jurgen Klopp’s club are ‘about to be begin talks’ to sign Fekir, and the French newspaper states that will be after the Champions League final against Real Madrid.This time there’s no fee mentioned, but Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has a tough negotiation reputation and he’ll extract every Euro from Liverpool that he can.Embed from Getty ImagesThere’s now enough claims from France to make this one sound more than just smoke, and Liverpool could be on the verge of signing themselves a player who can help open up defences when clubs sit back against Klopp’s onslaught, something which is surely only likely to increase.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a Beautiful City and Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndo美術寶1對1在香港,少兒美術班多少錢?價值280元的課程免費領美術寶1對1UndoHero WarsGetting this treasure is impossible!

Club have ‘strong interest’ in Newcastle player, ‘goal’ to sign him…

Posted on

first_imgOn January 7th, Calciomercato reported the Morocco international wants to ‘close the experience’ at St James’ Park and find a new club this month.So far, the 26-year-old has not been successful in leaving the Tyneside club and has less than a week to join another club.Having failed to make a single appearance in any competitions for the Magpies, another Italian website Tutto Mercato Web now claims the left-back is no longer included in Rafael Benitez’s plans for this season.Lazaar has previously played for Varese, Palermo and Benevento and the report suggests that he could return to Italy before the window closes.So far, there has been a ‘strong interest’ from Cagliari, who have made him their goal for January.With his contract at Newcastle set to expire in 2021, TMW doesn’t mention whether Cagliari are going to convert their ‘strong interest’ into an offer for Lazaar… but he sure’y wouldn’t be their ‘goal’ otherwise.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameChallenge Your Brain With This Must-Play Strategy Game.

But the fact that the Battalion have a hard time drawing flies (mainly because of the oversaturated GTA market-the move to North Bay will be good for them) and the Bombers do even moreso…plus the fact that Canada cares more about junior hockey than pro minor league hockey…They’ll be lucky to last one season.

first_imgLONDON (Reuters) – Mesut Ozil and Arsenal team mate Sead Kolasinac escaped unhurt after an attempted carjacking by knife-wielding attackers in North London yesterday, British media reported. The Dail Mail website said former Germany international midfielder Ozil was driving his black Mercedes when the car was boxed in by motorbike riders wearing helmets.A video clip accompanying the story showed Bosnian defender Kolasinac, who was a passenger, outside the vehicle and confronting the attackers.Ozil was shown in a photograph talking to police outside a Turkish restaurant. The paper said waiters and chefs had rushed to the players’ aid. “Ozil looked absolutely terrified, as anybody would after being chased by men with knives,” witness Azuka Alintah told the website.“He looked like he was running for his life. And I suppose he was.”Arsenal said both players were fine and the incident was being treated as a “private matter.” Police said they were called out shortly after 1700 local time after reports of an attempted robbery.“It was reported that suspects on motorbikes had attempted to rob a man who was driving a car,” a spokesman said.“The driver, along with his passenger, managed to get away unharmed and travelled to a restaurant in Golders Green, where they were spoken to by officers. There have been no arrests. Enquiries continue.”last_img read more
