Oval Test, Day 2: English bowlers rip through South African batting

first_imgDebutant England bowler Toby Roland-Jones ripped through South Africa’s top batting in the second Test on Friday, taking four wickets as the tourists collapsed to 126-8 at the close, losing seven wickets in the final session of the day.Responding to England’s first innings total of 353, the 29-year-old Roland-Jones removed both openers and then claimed the key scalps of Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock in his first Test for England.Experienced seamers James Anderson took 2-16 and Ben Stokes, who earlier in the day scored a sparkling century, and Stuart Broad each took one wicket, leaving South Africa facing defeat in the third game of the four-match series. The series is currently tied 1-1.Temba Bavuma and Kagiso Rabada put on 53 for the eighth wicket, but this was the only resistance.Vernon Philander, the pick of South Africa’s bowling on the first day at the Oval, sent down five overs but then left the field again for treatment, apparently for a stomach ailment that also forced him off the field on the first day.It was later reported that Philander had been admitted to hospital. He was unlikely to bat on Friday, but could bat on Saturday if he recovers in time.England’s seam attack made hay in ideal English conditions — cool, humid weather — and a Duke ball that southern hemisphere teams dislike. The swing bowling made life virtually impossible for South Africa’s batsmen.The tourists’ bowlers could not match the control of the seam and Stokes drove England to what now looks like a strong first innings total.advertisementStokes hit 112 in 153 balls, reaching and passing his century in dramatic fashion by smashing three consecutive sixes off the bowling of spinner Keshav Maharaj.The England left-hander had resumed on Friday with opener Alastair Cook, who added just six runs to his overnight 82 before Morne Morkel beat his bat and trapped Cook leg before wicket, 12 short of a 31st test century.Resuming on 171-4, England advanced to 269-6 at lunch as Stokes and Bairstow shared a 75-run partnership.Two wickets fell in the morning session, those of Cook and Bairstow.Stokes and Bairstow looked comfortable until the new ball was taken 20 minutes before lunch.With the swinging ball, Kagiso Rabada induced an edge from Bairstow to second slip, where captain Faf du Plessis took the catch. Bairstow scored 36 in 52 balls.Moeen Ali and Roland-Jones added valuable runs and were able to witness another Stokes blitz in an innings that included nine fours and four sixes.At tea, South Africa was 18-1. Roland-Jones induced the faintest of edges from opener Dean Elgar and he was caught behind by Jonny Bairstow with the last ball before the break. Elgar reviewed the decision, but replays showed a slight touch.After tea, Roland-Jones continued his work with three more wickets.last_img read more

Photo: The Cleveland Browns Had A Spelling Error Announcing Their 1st Round Pick For The 2nd Year In A Row

first_imgCleveland Browns have spelling error while announcing their 19th overall pick.Cleveland Browns’ Spelling ErrorFor the second year in a row, the Cleveland Browns had some difficulty announcing one of their first-round picks on Twitter. Last year, while announcing the selection of Johnny Manziel, Cleveland’s Twitter account misspelled “22nd.” It took them three tries to get it right. And tonight, while announcing the selection of Florida State offensive lineman Cameron Erving, the Browns spelled the player’s last name wrong. It’s “Erving,” not “Irving.”The Browns just misspelled the name of their own 1st round pick. Sigh…. pic.twitter.com/eF1Y0uDcEi— Al Ciammaichella (@Gotribe31) May 1, 2015Thankfully, it didn’t take them too long to correct it. With the 19th pick in the 2015 #NFLDraft the #Browns select Florida State OL Cameron Erving. #BrownsDraft pic.twitter.com/e3KbWO4A6E— Cleveland Browns (@Browns) May 1, 2015Do better, Cleveland.last_img read more

Advocates of monarchy in politics exposed Adityanath

first_imgLucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday hit out at the Congress for doubting the bravery of security forces, saying those who advocate “monarchy in our democratic set-up” have been “exposed” by one of the family loyalists. “Congress’ royal dynast family which advocates monarchy in our democratic set-up has been exposed by one of the family loyalists who happen to be Congress President’s conscious keeper,” he said in a series of tweets attacking Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s chief advisor Sam Pitroda. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details “The family enterprise had doubts about the bravery and valor of our armed forces when they were in power, but today New India stand with its soldiers to defeat forces of terror,” he said. Yogi was referring to Pitroda’s remarks, after the February 14 terrorist bombing in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama on a CRPF convoy in which 40 troopers were killed, that such incidents “happen all the time” and that the previous UPA government could also have sent planes across the border after the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, but “that is not the right approach” to deal with the world. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday His remarks came soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused the opposition of insulting the defence forces and of being the “natural habitat of terror apologists and questioners” of the country’s armed forces. Earlier in the day, the Prime Minister said in a tweet: “Loyal courtier of Congress’ royal dynasty admits what the nation already knew — Congress was unwilling to respond to forces of terror. This is a New India — we will answer terrorists in a language they understand and with interest.”last_img read more

Buckeyes rely on defense to start 30 in the Big Ten

The Buckeyes got a very important victory on Saturday: 31-13 over Wisconsin. The win was anything but conventional, but it did solidify the Buckeyes as the leaders of the Big Ten.“It was a little bit different ball game than I think any of us anticipated,” coach Jim Tressel said in his weekly press conference. “We knew Wisconsin was a heck of a football team, and we knew we were going to have our hands full.”Once again, the defense led OSU to a comfortable victory by several scores, but offensively the Buckeyes have more questions than answers.OSU (5-1, 3-0) now prepares for the Purdue Boilermakers (1-5, 0-2) on Saturday.Defense comes up big yet againAll season, the Buckeyes’ defense has made plays when necessary. Saturday wasn’t any different.Senior captain Kurt Coleman returned from a one-game suspension and wasted little time returning to form. His 89-yard interception return stopped a driving Badger team and shifted momentum into the Buckeyes’ favor for the remainder of the game. His 14 tackles were also a career high.“The funny thing about it, I was joking with my teammates and they were telling me that because I missed a game I needed to have double the production, and it just so happened that I happened to have double the production. It was a great feeling to come back and help this team, especially in that kind of fashion. I was just happy to be out there playing with my teammates again.”Tressel said the Badgers played up to his expectations, but the Buckeyes “came up with some plays that are game changers.”“Obviously, Kurt Coleman’s play and the pressure that was put on the quarterback, his being where he was supposed to be, and then I thought the execution on the interception return was outstanding,” Tressel said. “You always say when an interception is thrown, if you can block the intended receiver and you can block the quarterback and then get everyone else running down the sideline, you have a chance, and they did that just as you would hope they would do.”OSU got another interception for a touchdown in the second half. With the game still in doubt, junior safety Jermale Hines put the Buckeyes up two touchdowns with a 32-yard interception return.The defense will look to control Purdue’s high-powered offense on Saturday. The Buckeyes have held all but one opponent to under 20 points, including back-to-back shutouts of Toledo and Illinois.Pryor takes a step backAfter having nine touchdowns in the last three games, quarterback Terrelle Pryor saw his production drop significantly against the Badgers.The sophomore completed 5 of 13 passes for only 87 yards with one touchdown and an interception. His one bright spot for the afternoon came right before halftime, when he led the Buckeyes 88 yards for the go-ahead score. A run of 27 yards and a touchdown pass for 32 yards to DeVier Posey were the highlights of the drive.The offense struggled to find a rhythm because of three touchdown by the defensive and special teams. However, OSU would have liked to see more consistency from its quarterback.The problems on offense do not begin and end with one guy, Tressel stressed. The lack of production was an offensive problem, not just a problem with his quarterback.“I think the thing you do with any of us is understand that when things go just right, I probably didn’t do it by myself, and when things didn’t go the way you’d like, it probably didn’t have everything to do with me,” Tressel said.No Boom, only ZoomThe depth at running back is quickly depleting for OSU. Daniel “Boom” Herron did not play against Indiana on Oct. 3 but returned against Wisconsin. Unfortunately for the Buckeyes, he re-injured his ankle and most likely will not be available against the Boilermakers.Freshman Jamaal Berry, who was a prized recruit for the Buckeyes this season, has also been injured. Whether he will make an impact this season remains to be seen.“I’m the eternal optimist. I keep waiting for Jamaal Berry to be healthy because when he’s been healthy, he’s been very, very good,” Tressel said. “Right now, it’s Brandon and Jordan.”Small finally makes large impactSenior wide receiver and returner Ray Small has spent his fair share of time in Tressel’s doghouse. The Glenville product, who many thought would be the next Ted Ginn Jr., has not lived up to expectations, and it was unsure whether he would even play this season.However, when he took a Badger kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown on Saturday, he put defenders and past troubles behind him. He said there is no better feeling than making an impact again.“It means a lot. I play the game as if it’s my last play, no matter if it’s practice or if it’s the game,” Small said. “This year I came in and take it a lot more serious.”Small said he has no regrets and would love to have another big game this weekend to show how far he has come. read more
