Thats about all he can do right now, so hes trying not to think about when he might be able to play again for the Los Angeles Lakers. Heavyweight boxing is in a confusing -- some say messy -- state, but not everyone is complaining.When Tyson Fury imploded, so did the heavyweight division and two of the four versions of the world title are vacant.Briton Fury (25-0, 18 KOs), 28, is currently inactive and receiving treatment for mental health related problems after twice pulling out of a rematch with Wladimir Klitschko, who he beat a year ago.Fury relinquished the WBA and WBO belts while WBC champion Deontay Wilder (37-0, 36 KOs), 31, is currently injured and not expected to return until next spring.IBF champion Anthony Joshuas December 10 defence against American Eric Molina, which was hastily arranged after Klitschko decided not to fight the Briton on that date, has been criticised by fans as a mismatch.Fury, who became the lineal champion and holder of three world title belts (IBF, WBA and WBO) by out-pointing Klitschko, also caused a storm by offensive comments while champion before then testing positive for cocaine use.After the controversies, postponements, positive drugs tests and disappearing champions, the heavyweight division is in a state of flux.But has is all been so bad for boxing? It depends who you ask.I think its terrible for boxing what has happened with the titles, Mick Hennessy, Furys promoter, told ESPN.Tyson did something unique and very special by becoming lineal champion and ending Klitschkos reign. That was what was needed for the sport, something fresh. All the belts were together except one.For a period it really lifted heavyweight boxing. What is going on now is ridiculous. Everyone is scrambling around trying to get their hands on titles that they dont deserve.It degrades the value of the titles. People are calling Anthony Joshua a world champion but hes not a world champion. Others will be sold as world champions, but they arent. The public need to know they arent proper world champions. Only Deontay Wilder is a legitimate champion like Tyson was.Tyson isnt boxing at the moment but as far as Im concerned hes still the man. Until Tyson retires no one can say hes not the best.Hennessy expects Fury to box again in 2017.Its day by day, were not going to predict it [when Fury will box again] but I think he will when the time is right because its in his blood, Hennessy said.Its something that he loves and if he finds that love and when things are right, he will be unstoppable.The only person who can stop him is himself, none of these other fighters who are fighting for titles now.But for Joshua, the splintering of the title belts gives him a chance to strengthen his position. The 2012 Olympic gold medallist is set to dispute the vacant WBA super world title with Ukraines Klitschko -- providing he beats Molina -- in the spring, with Cardiffs Principality Stadium being considered as a venue.Joshua (17-0, 17 KOs), 27, only got to fight for the IBF title because it became vacant after Fury had won it from 40-year-old Klitschko (64-4, 54 KOs), who had ruled for nine and a half years. By agreeing to face Klitschko in a rematch instead of facing the IBFs mandatory challenger, Fury was quickly stripped of the IBF belt.Tyson Fury has done really well for the division, said Joshua.The fracturing of the heavyweight belts has also been good news for those wishing to get a crack at world titles.When three of the four worldd titles were in the hands of Klitschko, who most years has only boxed twice, it limited the chances of contenders getting the chance to challenge for the belts. Nike Dunk Cheap China. .Now, with at least three (four if you include the WBA regular title) world heavyweight champions next year, more will have a shot at global glory than in the days when Wladimir and brother Vitali held all four belts between them.Its all over the place in the heavyweight division right now, heavyweight contender David Price told ESPN. Thats maybe not good for the fans but its better than having just one champion for the boxers because we can be involved in bigger fights.It was locked down for years by the Klitschkos. You had to become a mandatory challenger for one of their belts or be a safe voluntary defence. Then Tyson Fury changed all that.Theres so much going on with the titles at the moment, the WBA is all over the place, and I just wish it had happened four years ago when I was British champion. Now Im not in the best of positions.Anthony Joshua has been so fortunate the way things have fallen into place for him.Price (21-3, 18 KOs) was overlooked as an opponent to challenge his fellow Briton Joshua on December 10 but is hopeful of a world title shot in 2017.Im ranked with the IBF [12] and WBO [11] and I want the quickest and easiest route to a title, it doesnt make sense to take the toughest route. The WBO have got a vacant title so maybe that is a route for me, Price said.I was supposed to fight Joseph Parker on this show on December 10 but that fell through and then I was supposed to fight Eric Molina on that date. Now Parker is boxing off for the vacant belt against Andy Ruiz.Las Vegas-based Parker (21-0, 18 KOs) will fight Mexican Ruiz Jr (29-0, 19 KOs) for the vacant WBO belt in his homeland of New Zealand on the same date as Joshua-Molina.David Haye (28-2, 26 KOs), the former WBA champion, lies in the wait for the winner of Parker-Ruiz, according to the WBO. Haye, 36, has also been linked to a fight against Russian Alexander Ustinov (33-1, 24 KOs), 39, for the fringe WBA interim title but the Briton has yet to announce his next fight after two easy wins earlier this year which ended an exile of three and a half years.The WBAs regular world title is also vacant and will be contested by Australian Lucas Browne (24-0, 21 KOs) -- banned earlier this year after testing positive for a banned substance -- and American veteran Shannon Briggs (60-6-1, 53 KOs), who at 44 is seven years older than Browne.Among the others scrambling to get a title shot is Florida-based Cuban Luis Ortiz (25-0, 22 KOs), who was recently stripped of the WBA interim title for failing to fight Ustinov next but this weekend hopes to put himself back in contention.The 37-year-old -- known as King Kong -- has his first fight after signing a deal with Joshuas promoter Eddie Hearn on Saturday when he faces American Malik Scott (38-2-1, 13 KOs) at the Salle des Etoiles in Monte-Carlo.I think Fury was able to shake up the heavyweight division and because of him, the division is now one of the most exciting divisions to watch, said Ortiz.I just want to get the opportunity to face him, or Wilder, to prove I am a champion as well. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '

The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.There is nothing like the ping of an aluminum bat in the cool spring air or the sight of a guy who bought his spot on the Goldeyes roster at a charity event – actually coming in TWICE to act as pinch runner -- or watching the Goldeyes score three runs in the eighth to put the game away without the benefit of a single hit. Yes, its the annual pre-season game between the University of Winnipeg Wesmen and the Winnipeg Goldeyes and its usually a crazy evening at the ballpark. It certainly was a crazy one on Friday night. This year, the Wesmen played a heck of a game, pinging out nine hits in an 8-4 loss to the local pro team. For the Goldeyes it was the final home game of the pre-season and while it probably didnt tell Rick Forney a lot about his new team, it did give his players a chance to have some fun at home before heading out for 16 days on the road. "I thought the Wesmen kids did a great job tonight," said Forney. "They played a real good baseball game. We saw a better team this year than last year, thats for sure. Their shortstop made two real good plays and the third baseman made a great play in the eighth. Their fundamentals were better than last year. Theyre improving. They gave us a real good baseball game." Left fielder Ryan Scoma was the player of the game for the Goldeyes, going three-for-three with two runs scored and an RBI.

The Goldeyes scored three in the third, two in the sixth and then three in the eighth on four walks, two productive outs and two stolen bases. Forney also had a look at six pitchers. The only pitcher to struggle was Justin Garcia who gave up all four runs on four hits in the fourth inning. "Our pitchers had some trouble getting loose in the colder weather," said Forney. "The balls werent rubbed up and they didnt get a good feel for the baseball. And I thought our outfielders had some trouble picking up the ball off the aluminum bats, but we played good defense today and I was happy with a good days work." Nick Drews and Brendan Gaunt each had two hits for the Wesmen.  Drews scored a run and also drove one in. The Wesmen starter Josh Loewen, in his final game at the university level, was the hard-luck loser. However, in 5.2 innings of work, he allowed five runs on 11 hits and didnt look out of place against a professional ball club. Aaron Correa earned the victory for the Goldeyes after throwing two scoreless innings. That was the final home pre-season game for the Goldeyes. The team will now head out onto the road, play in Fargo Saturday night and Sunday afternoon and then in Kansas and Wichita next week before opening the season in Grand Prairie, Texas next Friday night. The first home game is not until May 27 when the Laredo Lemurs open the season at Shaw Park. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '

NEW ORLEANS -- Former U. Cheap Nike Shox Shoes .S. soccer star Lauren Holiday has been diagnosed with a brain tumor while pregnant, and her husband, New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday, is taking indefinite leave from the NBA club to care for his wife, the Pelicans said Sunday.We are all praying for a healthy delivery of their first child and a successful surgery for Lauren, Pelicans general manager Dell Demps said in a prepared statement provided Sunday by the club. Furthermore, we ask everyone to respect the Holidays privacy at this time.Lauren Holiday, who retired from soccer last year, was among the worlds most respected players in the womens game during a career highlighted by Olympic gold medals with the U.S. national team in 2008 and 2012, and a FIFA World Cup title in 2015. The midfielder played in 133 games for the U.S. team, scoring 24 goals. She also played professionally in the NWSL, winning a championship with FC Kansas City in 2015.Lauren Holiday met Jrue at UCLA, where she played soccer and he played basketball. Jrue Holiday has been with New Orleans the past three seasons, but has spent most of that stint injured. He expects to return this season in full health and the Pelicans see him as a core player along with All-Star forward Anthony Davis.The most important thing for Jrue to do right now is be with his wife and family, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said in a statement. Every one of our coaches and players understands what Lauren and Jrue are going through, and they know were behind them one hundred percent. Well continue to do everything we can to support them and help them get through these hard times.In an interview with the Times-Picayune/, which first reported Lauren Holidays condition and Jrue Holidays plan to take leave, Jrue Holiday said Lauren was diagnosed with a benign, operable tumor on the right side of her brain.Their baby is due in mid-October, and in the interest of the health of both mother and baby, Laurens brain surgery will take place about six weeks after delivery, Jrue Holiday said. The birth also could be induced early.Jrue Holiday told the newspaper that Lauren has numbness on the right side of her face because the tumor is pressing on a nerve.He said he and Lauren are still very excited about the birth of our first child, but our focus shifted from having this magnificent blessing to making sure everything is going to be OK with Lauren and the child.The couple has sought to guard their privacy during this time, and Lauren has yet to speak publicly about her condition.However, some member of the U.S. national team said Holiday had written them about her condition and they were eager to support her.Shes just a very resilient strong person and she has strong faith and thats helping her in keeping her strong during this time because it is scary, said Becky Sauerbrunn, a former teammate with the U.S. national team and FC Kansas City. If anyone could get through something like this, it is Lauren.Heather OReilly, another former teammate with the U.S. national team and FC Kansas City, said, Were there for her. Were all behind her. Thats kind of what times like these sort of show is how close-knit this soccer community is.For the time being, the Holidays plan to reside Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, near the Duke University medical specialists wholl handle Lauren Holidays surgery. After Laurens operation, Jrue will be a primary caretaker for both his wife and newborn. The Pelicans said they plan to send a trainer to North Carolina to help Jrue maintain his fitness and basketball skills during his absence.We encourage Jrue to take as much time as he needs to be with his wife and family before returning to the Pelicans, Demps said, adding that the top priority of team owners Tom and Gayle Benson is the health and wellness of the people in the organization.We understand that Jrue will miss some games, and his teammates are prepared to step up in his absence, said Demps, whose own wife, Anita, is a cancer survivor and also has had a benign tumor removed from her brain. We will welcome Jrue back with open arms when he is ready to return to the team.Last season, Jrue Holiday played in 65 games, averaging 16.8 points, six assists, three rebounds and 1.4 steals in 28.2 minutes per game. For about the first half of last season, he played under minute restrictions as he came back from a stress fracture in his lower right leg that sidelined him for the better part of the previous two seasons.His replacements to start the upcoming season could include Tim Frazier, who filled at the end of last season after Holiday was sidelined by fracture of his orbital eye wall. New Orleans also acquired former New York Kicks point guard Langston Galloway this offseason.Pelicans combo guard Tyreke Evans also has played point guard in stints throughout his career, but the timeline on his comeback from knee surgery remains unclear.

According to a report from the Winnipeg Free Press, the Bombers will name Acting GM Kyle Walters to the post full time. ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Through two preseason games in which hes played slightly more than two quarters, Raiders quarterback Derek Carrs numbers are downright bad.Carr is clearly not happy about it. To a certain extent, however, he also expected it.Entering his third NFL season and the second in offensive coordinator Bill Musgraves system, Carr is using the preseason to experiment with throws and plays that likely wont be used in the regular season.That might sound contrary to the normal theory of honing in on what works best in the preseason and tightening it up for when the games count.The Raiders, though, want Carr to embrace the opportunity to test the boundaries of his skills.Sometimes people are going to be mad at me for certain things in the preseason but (quarterbacks coach Todd Downing) always tells me its a great opportunity to see what you can get away with, Carr said Tuesday. I take that really to heart and do it.In seven drives with Carr at quarterback, the Raiders have scored two field goals, punted four times and had one end on an interception.While Carr has completed a modest 60 percent of his passes (12 of 20), he is averaging just 4.1 yards per pass attempt and has a quarterback rating of 48.3 that is by far the lowest among Oaklands three quarterbacks.On more than one occasion, Carr has forced throws into tight coverage. On others, he has put the ball up for grabs downfield while throwing off his back foot.Carrs longest completion in the two preseason games was a 22-yarder to wide receiver Michhael Crabtree against the Arizona Cardinals. Discount Nike Shox. You know what it looks like when it looks good, Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said. We work on fundamentals a lot. We want to be able to block people, shed blocks, tackle, throw it and catch it ... some of the basic things that its really all about.Teams rarely reveal their regular-season strategies during the preseason. That figures to be the case more so this week when the Raiders host the Titans on Saturday night.Oakland and Tennessee also play each other in the regular season on Sept. 25.Both sides Im sure will hold a few things back, Del Rio said. Youre not going to show everything you want to do in the regular season in a preseason game.That means more experimenting from Carr.Its not a decision thats going to hurt us, Carr said Its a decision, if it works, its going to be a great thing for us. If we can continue to build on that, can it help us? Thats really all it is.I try not to do it too much but obviously I will do it during the preseason. Its a great opportunity and its a great time to do those things because when you hit Week 1 youre not going to try something new. Youre just going to do what youre supposed to do.Game notes Wide receiver Amari Cooper attended practice but did not participate. ...

Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said Friday that a victory in the first match will be crucial to winning the support of demanding home fans and to put the squad on the right track for its fourth title in the World Cup warm-up tournament. "Its fundamental to win this match and thats what Ive been telling the players." Scolari said. "We need to have the fans on our side, so its important we get off to a good start." Brazil hasnt won a significant title since the 2009 Confederations Cup in South Africa and home fans have criticized and jeered the national team following a series of poor results recently. "We need to take advantage of the home fans, and to do that we need to play well," Scolari said. "Our team is not fully ready yet and we know its not going to be easy, but we need to work hard to keep the fans on our side." Scolari led Brazil to the 2002 World Cup title but has endured disappointing results in the seven matches he coached since returning to the national team in December. Brazil is coming off a convincing 3-0 win over France in its final warm-up, but it had won only one of its six matches until then, against Bolivia. Scolari and the Brazilian players were loudly jeered and booed by nearly 50,000 home fans after a 2-2 draw in a friendly against Chile in April. Scolari knows first-hand how an opening loss at home could make the teams path to the title more difficult. He was head of the home team when he coached Portugal at the 2004 European Championships, when the hosts lost the opening match but eventually reached the final. "Its horrible to lose the first match at home, just horrible," he said. "Its tough to handle and thats something we have to avoid at all costs. If we lose, its going to be difficult with the fans, the media, with everything." Scolari said its even tougher because Brazil is not as respected at home as it is abroad. Brazilian fans often feel distant from the national team, in part because most of the players are from foreign clubs. This time the coach included 11 players from domestic clubs in the Confederations Cup squad, repeatiing the winning formula of the 2002 team that thrived in South Korea and Japan, when 13 members played at home. Cheap Baseball Jerseys. Since then, the national team has had only a handful of domestic players in most tournaments. The current players know the responsibility that comes with playing at home. "Theres always a lot of pressure when it comes to the Selecao, but even more now here at home," said Neymar, the 21-year-old Barcelona striker touted to lead Brazil to the title. "We know there is a lot of pressure and we know of our responsibility. But we have a great group and we will do everything we can to reach our goal of winning the Confederations Cup and then the World Cup next year, which everybody knows is the most important thing for us." Brazil has won the last two Confederations Cups, in 2005 in Germany and in 2009 in South Africa. It also won the 1997 tournament in Saudi Arabia. The five-time world champions havent won a significant title since the 2009 tournament. Only goalkeeper Julio Cesar and defender Daniel Alves were in that squad. "The team has been revamped and its always hard when you start from scratch," Neymar said. "But we are starting to put a team together and thats the most important thing right now. We know we have talented players who can make a difference in the end." Brazil beat Japan 4-0 in a friendly last October, when coach Mano Menezes was still ahead of the national team. "We won that match but it wasnt easy," Brazil striker Hulk said. "We faced a lot of difficulties in the beginning of that match and we expect the same in the opener here." Japan arrived just two days ago because it was playing World Cup qualifiers in Asia, and Italian coach Alberto Zaccheroni said he expects his team to face some difficulties against the hosts on Saturday. "Our team has improved lately and our goal in this competition is to show the world how we improved," he said. "We are going to be playing against teams that are ahead of us in the (FIFA) rankings, so Im curious to see what happens. Maybe we are not the best team in the world but we know how to play football and we have very good players."

I was just thinking when are you going to stop. When are you going to have a bad few legs? He never did. Michael Smith I just had to stand and watch, there was nothing I could do, Smith told Sky Sports. Even when I was nearing a finish, he was checking out the 132s and stuff like that. You were trying to get in to play, but he would not even let you. You just had to watch what he was doing.I was just hoping he would miss, so I could win a leg. I didnt was to get nil-ed! When he missed the double 18, I got a shot at the 116 and I checked it, I thought at least I got one. The debate has started. Is Michael van Gerwen the greatest darts player ever? I was just thinking when are you going to stop. When are you going to have a bad few legs? He never did.You have to try and focus on your own game, but it was hard to because Michael just didnt miss. He didnt let you concentrate whatsoever. Michael van Gerwen produced another inspired performance to take top spot of the Premier League last week Smith earned his maiden point of the Premier League after drawing with Dave Chisnall last week, giving him confidence to take into this weeks match against his mentor Anderson.The reigning champions absence through illness on the opening night forced Smith to play twice and the youngster is cheekily seeking revenge. Wayne Mardle and Rod Harrington debate whether Michael van Gerwen can replace Phil Taylor as the best darts player ever It was a bit hard to play two on my debut, he said. It was hard enough finding my feet in the first game, never mind playing my second. It would have been nice if [Anderson] was there, so I could have asked a few questions and it would have chilled me out a lot more.We are both going up there, both of us to win. We have played four times and its two-all. I wont say anything, because I know hell get me back one day! Ill just go up there to try and get the win.I was scared that I was going to end up with no wins and no points. To finally get the point against Chizzy and that win last week, I can relax and have fun.Watch Premier League Darts on Thursday live on Sky Sports 1 HD at 7pm.  Or watch live for £6.99 without a contract, on NOW TV.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio States stout defense hasnt allowed a touchdown in two games against overmatched Bowling Green and Tulsa. Urban Meyer knows the first real test will come at No. 14 Oklahoma next week.The Buckeyes intercepted four of Tulsa quarterback Dane Evans passes Saturday -- including pick-sixes by safety Malik Hooker and cornerback Marshon Lattimore -- in in a 48-3 victory.Our defense is playing so well right now, Meyer said. Obviously, the challenge will come next week against a very good team, and were going to jump on that one early and get ready to go.The offense, on the other hand, was a little slow to get going Saturday.After piling up a school-record 776 yards last week against Bowling Green, Ohio State (2-0) didnt score an offensive touchdown against until quarterback J.T. Barrett ran in from 11 yards with 9:42 left in the third quarter.Tailback Mike Weber, Barrett and H-backs Curtis Samuel and Dontre Wilson added scoring runs later in the second half to put the game out of reach.Wilson said Ohio State must come out gunning next week in Norman.It will be tough, it will be tough, Wilson said. Thats the plan not to start that way, and I dont think well start that way. Weve got to establish the running game. Once the running game pops we can start doing better.Tulsa (1-1) managed only Redford Jones 37-yard field goal in the first quarter and was limited to 188 total yards on offense.We got some things going but just didnt finish when we got in the red zone, Tulsa coach Philip Montgomery said. We just made too many crucial mistakes at bad times.Barrett was a pedestrian 14 for 22 for 149 yards and no touchdowns after throwing for six last week.Weber gained 92 yards on 17 carries and scored his first touchdown as a Buckeye.Lightning in the area extended halftime to about 70 minutes and driving rain fell throughout the second half, chasing away many of the 104,410 fans.THE TAKEAWAYTULSA: The Golden Hurricane played tough against Barrett and the Ohio State offense in the first half, but Tulsas offense made too many mistakes to stay in the game.Right before the half, the picks were a tough pill to swallow, Montgomeryy said. Stitched Nike NFL Jerseys. HIO STATE: Ohio State again flexed its defensive muscle and showed its secondary could be among the best in the country. The Buckeyes managed just 158 yards of offense in the first half against a four-touchdown underdog, but the harder the rain fell in the second half, the more they scored. They finished with 417 yards.KEY NUMBERS:Samuel again put together a solid game, catching five passes for 62 yards and rushing for 78 yards on 8 carries....The Ohio State defense limited Tulsa to 77 rushing yards on 36 carries for a 2.1 yards-per-carry average....Hookers second-quarter interception was his third of the season. He returned it 26 yards for a touchdown, marking the second-consecutive game an Ohio State defensive back has a pick-six. Later in the second quarter, Lattimore returned an interception 40 yards for a score....Ohio State defensive end Sam Hubbard tallied a career-high six tackles. Linebacker Raekwon McMillan led the Buckeyes with nine.MAKING ADJUSTMENTSBarrett said Ohio State was confounded by the Tulsa defense in the first half, but halftime adjustments kick-started the attack in the rainy second half.That was a hard thing in the first half, he said. They threw the kitchen sink at us. It was a really good defense. With that being said, trying to adjust to that on the sideline was kind of rough in the first half. Once we got to halftime we made better adjustments.He said the driving rain wasnt a factor.POLL IMPLICATIONS:No. 4 Ohio State walloped a weaker opponent as expected. No. 2 Clemson struggled with an underdog so could possibly lose some votes.UP NEXTTULSA: A home game against FCS team North Carolina A&T next week.OHIO STATE: The real season starts as the Buckeyes travel to Oklahoma to take on the Sooners.

Sri Lanka A 0 for 0 trail West Indies A 276 (Vishaul Singh 96, Brooks 65, Gunaratne 3-27) by 276 runsScorecard West Indies A stumbled on either side of a substantial fourth-wicket partnership between Shamarh Brooks and Vishaul Singh to fold for 276 against the Sri Lanka A team at the Khettarama Stadium. Wholesale NFL Jerseys .West Indies A were immediately put under pressure after opting to bat, as dropped Test opener Rajendra Chandrikas poor form continued. He was trapped in front by Lahiru Kumara, who had spearheaded the Sri Lanka Under-19s pace attack on their recent tour to England. Vishaul Singh (96) found himself doing the rescue act twice, coming in at 56 for 3 and putting on 125 for the fourth wicket with his captain Shamarh Brooks, before a second collapse led West Indies to losing three wickets for four runs.Kemar Roachs unbeaten 45 was the only other notable contribution, as the Sri Lankans didnt let the batsmen settle. U-19 offspinner Charith Asalanka and allrounder Asela Gunaratne stood out for Sri Lanka A, taking two and three wickets. Chinaman bowler Lakshan Sandakan, who made his Test debut in the recently concluded series against Australia, bowled 28 overs but only managed to pick up one wicket.Sri Lanka A openers Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Perera were unbeaten without scoring in the solitary over they faced before stumps.

During the athletes parade, the 23-strong Ukrainian team was represented by a lone flagbearer in an apparent protest at the presence of Russian troops in Ukraines Crimean peninsula. . 1, meaning problems for the doping controls at both major international sports events next year. The World Anti-Doping Agency provisionally suspended the Moscow Antidoping Center on Sunday, saying its operations must improve or a six-month ban on the facilitys accreditation will be imposed. It was only six weeks ago, when on day two at Chester-le-Street, Angelo Mathews walked down the pitch, conferred with a team-mate, and, having been given out, decided to review the decision. He had quite clearly hit the ball, so this was the shambolic head-on collision to cap a veritable pile-up of facepalm reviews. Does he understand the rules? people wondered on social media. What the hell is going on?In Galle, the same captain had his top-scoring batsman overturn a review on day one. He got his best bowler Sri Lankas second Test hat-trick by reviewing an lbw shout on day two. Then on the third day, Mathews set his offspinner on track for a first career ten-wicket haul with a bat-pad review, and for good measure, got his young left-arm wristspinner a scalp off a ball that spun at the batsman as if it had been shot out of a cannon, from point.In six weeks, the same man who appeared not to know how caught behinds worked, had become a DRS-savant capable of mentally simulating the ball-tracking for every delivery. In addition, there was the inspired promotion of Kusal Perera to No. 3. There was the fruitful decision to have David Warner face a lot of offspin. There was a breakthrough almost every bowling change, and the close fielders appealed themselves hoarse.So adept was Mathews at turning everything he touched into a wicket, you almost expected the official who handed him the winners cheque to look back at splayed stumps and ruefully trudge off.How on earth has the transformation happened? What the hell is going on?****It was only 13 days ago, ahead of the Pallekele Test, that Mathews said he [didnt] know what to call himself, when asked if he considered himself an unlucky captain. Weve had so many injuries in the past few months, he said. At the international level, I cant go and say we cant play because we dont have any bowlers. We need to know how to produce them.He would have desperately liked Dhammika Prasad and Dushmantha Chameera to have been fit through the England tour. He would have loved for Nuwan Pradeep and Suranga Lakmal to be available through this one.Yet, in Galle, all but four wickets were the work of two bowlers. Dilruwan Perera and Rangana Herath might conceivably have won this match on their own. Having been required for only two overs on the first evvening, seamer Vishwa Fernando would have had a more productive debut Test if he had set up a stall at fine leg and sold ice creams to fans for the rest of the Test. Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys China. Lakshan Sandakan had spent much of the Pallekele match bamboozling Australian batsmen after coming in for Lakmal, but he produced more grinning high-fives than deliveries in this game.In a way, Pradeep or Prasad or Chameera or Lakmal would have been counterproductive here, because they would have all had longer spells with the new ball, and that would have delayed Perera and Heraths introduction. Fewer of those sliders - which Australian batsmen appear to believe are the work of paranormal spiritual forces - would have been bowled.It seems the more Sri Lankas bowlers are injured, the more effective Sri Lankas attack becomes.Which leads you to wonder how on earth is this all happening. What the hell is going on?****It was only two weeks ago that SLCs public profile reached a nadir, for the boards public maligning of Muttiah Muralitharan, and its stipulation that the Test match mace be only privately handed over.During the Galle Test, though, the opening of the countrys largest indoor nets complex - in Pallekele - was announced by the board. This came, of course, with much trumpet blowing. The release claimed that ICC chief executive David Richardson was so impressed by complex, that following a mere inspection of these nets, he immediately took the field and struck a double-century against an attack consisting of Warne, Murali, Hadlee and Marshall (Im paraphrasing here). According to the statement, the project will also be completed at less than half the initial budgeted cost.So forget that after two matches, Sri Lanka have a young batsman in Kusal Mendis whom coaches are already speaking of building a top order around. Forget the turnaround in Mathews fortunes. Forget the historic Under-19 win in England overnight, or the fact that a spin-bowling succession plan for Herath has now emerged.SLC is making common-sense, cost-effective decisions that will benefit the islands elite teams, and promote crickets growth.What on earth is bloody happening?

Cheap Wholesale Nike Basketball Shoes .Reynolds chased down a Sam Perrett grubber that went between the legs of Manly fullback Tom Trbojevic with just 79 seconds on the clock on Thursday night for the Bulldogs to consolidate their top-four spot in a patchy performance.Reynolds was controversially earlier been denied what would have been the match-winning try by the bunker in the second minute of extra time.Reynolds kicked 25m out from Manlys line and chased through and picked up a Daly Cherry-Evans fumble to crash over.But video referee Bernard Sutton somehow ruled that Reynolds pushed Cherry-Evans in the back before he picked up the ball. The loss ends any chance of Manly making the finals this year under first-season coach Trent Barrett.Manly skipper Jamie Lyon missed an 80th-minute penalty goal, from a Sam Kasiano ruck penalty, that would have kept the visitors slim playoff hopes intact.The Sea Eagles were the better side for much of the contest but missed a number of field-goal attempts in extra time as the Dogs held their composure.However, Canterburys effort will have only given ammunition to those who have written them off as a premiership threat.Cherry-Evans chipped and chased for himself and outleapt Will Hopoate for the games first try in just the fourth minute.Brett Morris scored his first try from a Falcon assist from his brother Josh when the Steeden bounced off his head and Brett pounced in the in-goal.Brett added his second five minutes later, scything his way past three defenders to score his 130th career try.The Dogs led 12-6 at the break before Matt Wright crossed two minutes after halftime on the back of a Lyon linebreak.The Dogs went ahead again in the 56th minute through winger Perrett but his opposite Jorge Taufua answered six minutes later after a Nathan Green tapdown.Taufua was denied 10 minutes later via a double movement and the game moved into the golden-point period after Lyons miss.Manly centre Dylan Walker suffered a dislocated shoulder in the first half and could have played his last game of the year.The win was the Bulldogs seventh in eight games and their eighth in nine golden-point matches.They will hold their spot in the top four regardless of other results in round 23.It was a pretty scrappy affair, Bulldogs coach Des Hasler said of his 200th NRL win with the clipboard.The positive for us was (winning after) the five-day turnaround. It was against a side that was desperate.Their season was on the line - you could see that.We came up with some great defence.They are (ugly) wins, but we have to have them. There was a lot at stake in this game.The fact that we can graft out the win and overcome moments of adversity to hang in there and keep turning up, that has to be a good sign.Manly are on 20 points with three matches to play meaning they cant make the 28-point cut for the final eight.The boys are shattered, coach Barrett said.From my point of view, I couldnt be more proud of the effort and fight. We knew we had to win to make the finals and we gave ourselves every chance.We had the opportunity to win the game there in golden point but it wasnt to be. Nike Basketball Shoes Cheap .

rrent situation at Fremantle.You can do 98 go

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. Cheap Nike Tanjun Wholesale . -- Ford found some extra power at one of NASCARs fastest tracks -- enough to put Greg Biffle on the pole for the first time in almost four years.Biffle led a Ford contingent to a strong showing in qualifying for Saturday nights race at Daytona International Speedway to earn the top starting spot.He was one of seven Ford drivers to qualify in the top 14 at a track where Toyota used teamwork to win the Daytona 500 in February.Biffle was the last car to make a lap in Friday nights qualifying session and earned the top starting spot with a speed of 192.995 mph in his Roush Fenway Racing Ford.It is Biffles first pole since Charlotte in October 2012, a streak of 130 races, and he credited engine builder Doug Yates.I am not going to discredit winning a pole but we would sure like to win an open race track, Biffle said. We have been really close with a couple outside front row starts and just havent quite gotten there. It does feel good for our team though.Biffle bumped Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch from the top of the leaderboard. Edwards lap of 192.748 was good enough for second, while Busch dropped to third with a lap at 192.336.Joe Gibbs Racing had to scramble to ready Buschs backup car for qualifying after Busch destroyed his Toyota during a crash in Friday mornings practice session.Ricky Stenhouse Jr. qualified fourth to give Roush two drivers in the top four.It is a good day for the Roush Fenway Fords, Stenhouse said. The guys have been bringing really good cars to the speedways, really fast cars. It is really cool that Greg got it for our organization. It shows we are putting a lot of hard work in and it is starting to pay off at every race track.Brad Keselowski qualified fifth in a Team Penske Ford, while teammate Joey Logano was 11th and Ryan Blaney was 12th for The Wood Brothers. Roush driver Trevor Bayne was 13th and Aric Almirola 14th for Richard Petty Motorsports. All the Fords use engines built by Doug Yates.I am really happy to see a Ford on the pole with Greg Biffle and I think we will be ready to race, Keselowski said. It makes you feel really good to see all those Ford teammates up there in the front of the field.The Ford drivers will have to work together to fend off the Toyota brigade that ganged up on the field to win the Daytona 500. JGRs four drivers worked with Martin Truex Jr. to form a juggernaut that led to a Denny Hamlin win as Toyota drivers took four of the top five spots.Edwards expected a similar strategy on Saturday night.That worked really well, I dont know that it will ever work that well again, Edwards said.I assume well just try to do the same thing which was basically work together if we can and I watched a little bit of the race the other day and everything just worked out perfectly. If we can do that again, it would be great. We really have a good group of cars and we have a great group of teammates so that would be good.Austin Dillon, who was involved in a horrible accident on the last lap of this race last year in which his car went airborne into the fence, qualified sixth as the fastest Chevrolet.Jimmie Johnson was seventh and the only Hendrick Motorsports driver to advance to the second round of qualifying. Hendrick drivers had won six consecutive poles on restrictor plate tracks dating to the 2015 Daytona 500.Hamlin was ninth and Kurt Busch 10th.Truex, who lost in a photo finish to Hamlin in the 500, was 15th. Defending race winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. was 16th.Tony Stewart, who snapped an 84-race winless streak last week on the road course at Sonoma, qualified 19th.Other notes from Friday at Daytona:AVERAGE EARNHARDT: He didnt get the starting spot he hoped for, but Earnhardt still believes he has a decent shot to get his first win of the season on Saturday night.Its going to be slick in the race and handling is going to be real important, Earnhardt said. Im more concerned really with the car driving good. Might not be the fastest car out there, thats not the car that is going to win the race. I think the guy thats got the best handling package. This place is going to be pretty slick.---BUSCHS BACKUP: JGR did a good job getting Busch a strong car after he crashed his primary in Fridays practice. He had harsh words for Goodyear after the accident, which was caused by a cut tire.Busch complained he didnt have much confidence in Goodyear -- teammate Edwards also had a tire issue in the morning -- but he had softened his stance by the end of the day.From my vantage point weve had a lot of tire issues this year. Thats probably four, five or six tires that weve blown this year, Busch said. We also did the tire test at Kentucky and didnt necessarily have the best of results, I felt like. Thats where the frustration probably stemmed from and came from.Goodyear probably didnt deserve what they got from me earlier today, but thats just from earlier today.---SLOW ELLIOTT: Chase Elliott opened the year with the pole for the Daytona 500, then duplicated the fete at Talladega Superspeedway.He had no shot at making it three consecutive poles at plate tracks and will start 24th on Saturday.It was not as good as weve been in the last couple of plate races, but, hey, well try to focus on the race, Elliott said. Im looking forward to the race and just trying to get going and hopefully not make the same mistake I made here in February.---SMITHS PROBLEM: Regan Smith had a problem on his qualifying attempt and wasnt able to complete a timed lap. Hell start 40th.I crossed the start/finish line taking the green flag, and something happened that changed the pitch and it seemed like I lost a little bit of power, he said. Just to be safe, killed the motor and got it back (to the garage) to see what is wrong with it. If there is a silver lining with this whole thing, at Daytona you can start toward the back and still make time and be OK. Nike Tanjun Shoes On Sale .

Fremantle coach Ross Lyon denies the clubs culture has been eroded by a series of off-field incidents, but says hes not in a position to speculate on the AFL futures of Michael Johnson and Shane Yarran.Yarrans AFL future is hanging by a thread after being charged with assault and unlawful wounding over two separate incidents, while Johnson is facing an assault charge over a scuffle in a kebab store.Star recruit Harley Bennell also hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons last week when his car was impounded after police discovered he was driving with an expired licence.Lyon insists the culture of the club is still strong, but says he cant make further comment on Johnson and Yarran while their cases are before the courts.Everyones allowed due process and natural justice, so it would be remiss of me to speculate, Lyon said after the teams photo shoot on Tuesday.Ive been here five years now. Clearly Ive heard the headlines thrown about culturally. But cultures are built over a long period of time.For four and a half years basically we were pretty much - for want of a better term - incident free.But certainly in a period in the off-season theres been a couple of situations that havent pleased us.Clearly theres boundaries in society that if you have alleged to have broken, it escalates well beyond us.Our basic premise is you know right from wrong, and civility costs nothing. Wholesale Nike Tanjun Shoes. Lyon said the clubs leadership group, headed by captain David Mundy, were in a good position to take a strong stance on any misbehaving players.But he doesnt think Johnsons presence in the leadership group meant any of those messages would be eroded.Bennell flew to Germany earlier this week to seek treatment on his troublesome calves.The 24-year-old midfielder is yet to play a senior game for the Dockers, and rumours about his off-field lifestyle are starting to surface in Perth.Lyon said Bennells past misdemeanours at Gold Coast meant the rumours were inevitable.You make your bed and you lie in it. Clearly hes had a chequered history previously, Lyon said.It doesnt take much to catch fire. We understand that.Lyon was in America taking part in a leadership course at Harvard University while most of the drama unfolded at Fremantle.He said some of the concepts he learned in the course could be applied to the current situation at Fremantle.You can do 98 good things, and if you do two things that dont look great, human nature is to focus on the bad, Lyon said.So what Im here to tell you is theres 98 per cent going right here.
