After all the New Zealand talk that a one-off Test would be exciting, theyve actually decided they would have preferred a few more matches after they lost at SuperSport Park. JuJu Smith-Schuster Womens Jersey .Its a shame, really, to just play the one Test and for that to be the decider, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson said.Centurion became a shoot-out because of the Durban abandonment and, in a bid to strike the first blow, Williamson chose to bowl first. He saw grass on the Centurion pitch - more grass than we sometimes see at the height of the summer - and he had heard that it would be soft and spongy and would get easier for batting as the sun baked the surface. It turned out that Faf du Plessis would have done exactly the same thing, even though hindsight showed it would have been a mistake.It was a good toss to lose and unfortunately I won it, Williamson said, as he admitted he second-guessed himself by the end of the first session on the first day. Naturally when they are 130 without loss, it crosses your mind. But there was enough in the wicket to have restricted them to a below-par total. History shows wickets fall in clumps and we werent able to do that.New Zealands short-ball strategy was one of the reasons South Africa scored a quickly and Williamson conceded that was a strategic error. Youre right. That first session, we were a little short, he said.That, combined with a poor track record on DRS and umpiring errors, left New Zealand having to work much harder than they did in Durban, where they dismissed South Africa for 263. But that was only the half of it. When South Africa unleashed their rejuvenated pace pack on New Zealand, it was clear there was a difference in quality between the two sides. New Zealands openers could not cope with the moving ball, their big guns did not fire and their long tail could not delay the inevitable.Williamson chose to look at the challenge as a lesson for New Zealand, particularly for their younger batsmen. Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander are two world-class bowlers and they have shown it. Then you throw Kagiso Rabada into the mix and on surfaces that are offering, they will find anything, Williamson said. Its a challenge the batters were excited to come up against. In terms of experience, there is no better to move your game forward.Henry Nicholls benefited the most from that experience with 76 in the second innings. Only Williamson himself, who scored 77 in the first, managed more runs but he is also still learning in terms of his new leadership role. It is very enjoyable, he said. Theyre a great bunch of guys and its nice to be a part of this unit and lead the side. Its better when you are winning.He would know. He now has a series loss and a series win to his name and was as gracious in defeat in South Africa as he was in victory in Zimbabwe, although, ultimately, he wanted a few more matches. The better team won but it would have been great to play another game or another two. T. J. Watt Jersey . Goals from Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery and Thomas Mueller extended Bayerns unbeaten run to a record 37 matches. "This record is incredible," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said. T. J. Watt Youth Jersey . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. http://www.steelerspronfl.com/Youth-JuJu-Smith-Schuster-Elite-Jersey/ . Giroud, who wasnt in the starting lineup for two matches after allegations about his private life and a decline in form, scored twice in the first half. Tomas Rosickys chip made it 3-0 before half time at Emirates Stadium, while defender Laurent Koscielny scored an unmarked header in the second half. MADISON, Wis. -- The University of Wisconsin says it asked a fan wearing what appeared to be a President Barack Obama mask and a noose around his neck to remove the offensive parts of the costume during the schools football game on Saturday night against Nebraska.A picture circulating on social media showed the fan in a black-and-white jumpsuit, wearing the mask, the noose and a sign on his chest. Another person appeared to be holding up the rope of the noose.The fan complied when guest services staff asked to remove the offensive parts of the costume, accordinng to a school statement . James Conner Youth Jersey. University policy does not allow fans to wear masks while entering the stadium, but they are allowed to wear them once inside.The school said the costume, while repugnant and counter to the values of the university and athletic department, was an exercise of the individuals right to free speech.Wisconsin says it also exercised its right to ask the fan to remove the offensive parts of the costume. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

WASHINGTON -- A rare offensive outburst by the Orlando Magic overcame the biggest night of John Walls career. Under Armour Clearance Sale .Elfrid Payton scored 22 of his career-high 25 points in the first half and the Magic beat the Washington Wizards 124-116 on Tuesday despite Walls 52-point performance.The Magic were averaging 93.2 points and scored over 100 points in just five of their first 21 games but shot 52 percent en route to a third straight victory.Were growing on that end of the floor, Magic coach Frank Vogel said. We got several great contributions, starting with Elfrid Payton coming off the bench having the game of his life. He was terrific tonight.Wall had the highest-scoring game of his career and kept Washington in it with 33 points in the second half as the Wizards cut the lead below 10 in the fourth quarter. The guard made 18 of 31 from the field and added eight assists.I mean, (in the) third quarter I started to make shots, and I was trying to be more aggressive at times, Wall said. I was able to be aggressive and get into the paint and make some easy shots.Payton played like Wall in the first half as he went 8 for 8 from the field and 3 for 3 from the line, nearly matching his previous season best of 23 points in the first two quarters alone. Payton finished 9 for 12 and handed out nine assists.They were playing off a little bit, so they gave me a couple of open looks, Payton said. They just looked like they were staying home so just trying to be a little bit more aggressive.Orlandos 124 points were a season high.Jeff Green scored 13 of his 20 in the first half for Orlando. Green went to Georgetown and played his college basketball at the Verizon Center, and he made a key 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter that stopped a Washington rally.(The offense) was clicking, Green said. We were making shots, making the extra pass, trusting each other, and we got it done.The Magic scored the games first seven points and the lead went back and forth until they took command in the second quarter.Orlando (10-12) slowly pulled away, making 13 of its first 18 shots in the second quarter to take a 62-48 lead with just under 3 minutes left. The Magic scored 40 points in the period en route to a 65-52 halftime edge.Seven Orlando players scored in double figures. Bismack Biyombo contributed a season-high 14 points and grabbed 13 rebounds.Only three Wizards scored in double figures.TIP-INSMagic: The Magic are 5-1 when scoring 100 points. ... Vogel called off practice Monday, and his team took a trip to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture.Wizards: Ian Mahinmi remains out with a sore knee -- the non-surgically repaired one is the problem now. Coach Scott Brooks said the center had an MRI last week. ... Brooks also said Sheldon McClellan has been assigned to Delaware of the D-League and will play three or four games there.A LITTLE HELP FROM THEIR FRIENDSThe Orlando bench gave the starters a lift by scoring 73 points. Payton and Green led the way while Jodie Meeks added 18, and Nikola Vucevic had 10. The four combined to make 24 of 37 shots (67 percent) from the field.NO DEFENSEThe 124 points were the most Washington has allowed in a home game this season, and the second-highest amount the Wizards have allowed in any game.UP NEXTMagic: On Wednesday, the Magic will host the Celtics. Bostons been getting some great shooting in recent games from Jonas Jerebko.Wizards: The Nuggets come to town on Thursday for their first meeting of the season. Denver won both meetings last year, and its a bit of a homecoming for forward Will Barton, who went to high school in nearby Baltimore. Under Armour Scorpio For Sale .

The good news is that we finally have a draft calendar for 2017. Igor Larionov Canucks Jersey . The bad news is what the calendar itself looks like -- a chaotic collection of dates that bears no resemblance to realistic flight schedules and which fails to take into account the impact of jetlag and endless travel on the human body.Not only will the F1 circus once again have to put up with the impossible journey between Montreal and Baku -- assuming that the much-loved Canadian Grand Prix even takes place next year -- but for those who traditionally save money by staying out in Asia between the Singapore and Japanese grands prix, we will have to go from European time back home to local time in Sepang before switching back onto European time for the Marina Bay night race and back onto local time again when it comes to racing in Suzuka.The first sight of next years proposed calendar led to jokes about wrist-slashing and finding new jobs in the Sepang press room on Thursday, but the draft calendar is no laughing matter. It is hard enough to stomach for those independent freelancers who already spend in excess of £20,000 each year simply attending the races, but for the hard-working F1 mechanics whose jobs are truly physical, 2017 is a nightmare that people will have to suffer unless they see it as an opportunity to move into a professional sphere that is kinder to both body and family life.Working in Formula One is a privilege, make no mistake. Whatever ones role within the paddock, we are afforded with a unique opportunity to see the world (or, at the very least, the airports and circuits of the world), all while working in a field that inspires passion like no other.But that passion comes at a high cost, both financial and personal. Divorce rates within the sport are high, but higher still is the level of staff turnover -- particularly in teams -- as those who revelled in the adrenaline and adventure of a life on the road in their twenties decide that it might be a nice idea to have a social life, a family life, or even simply a personal life when they hit their thirties.There are rumours that following the Liberty Media takeover of the sport we will soon see calendars of 25 or more races, and while increasing F1s global reach is no bad thing, a 25-round calendar will only work if it is assembled by those who have real and recent experience of attending every round.As things currently stand, 2017 features seven back-to-back races, few of which make logistical sense. Shanghai-Bahrain works well for anyone using a Middle Eastern airline (thatll be most of us...), while Spa-Monza makes for a pleasant road trip, as some of us discovered this year. But Montreal-Baku is an exercise in insanity, with no direct commercial flights between the two venues. This year I booked two separate returns (London-Montreal and London-Baku), and alterations to the airlines schedules post-booking meant that I had a 15 minute window in which to complete a transfer at Heathrow.Similarly insane is the non-flyaway pairing of Austria and Silverstone, which tested the limits of the truckies ability to get from Spielberg to Northamptonshire in time to set up the motorhomes at the latter venue without violating EU regulations on the maximum number of driving hours allowed before road safety becomes a problem. Given the FIAs interest in road safety, it boggles the mind that the Federation would sanction such a pairing for a second consecutive year.Budapest and Hockenheim make for a logical pairing given the proximity of the two venues, and the only complaint there is a social one -- the Hungarian capital is a fun and bustling city with an abundance of choice when it comes to celebrating the start of the summer holiday, while Hockenheim is something of a damp squib when it comes to partying hearty. Or partying at all, come to that.Sepang to Singapore leads to the body clock problems mentioned earlier, even if its only a short hop between the two circuits. Switching between three time zones in two weeks (four if one stays out east to save money rather than heading home before Suzuka) is far harder to live than can be imagined if youve not tried it. At least the Mexico-Brazil back-to-back is an easy (almost) end to the season...Still, the overall calendar consensus? Could do better. Much, much better. Expect record rates of employee attrition over the course of the year, and yet more divorces than weve seen in years past. Even the marital guidance counsellors now on many teams payrolls are going to find it hard to save the relationships that will allow teams to retain their valued staff. Bo Horvat Canucks Jersey . JOHNS, N. Markus Naslund Canucks Jersey .C. -- Al Jefferson joked that he feels he can score from anywhere on the court.http://www.officialcanuckshockeyshop.com/Ryan-Miller-Jersey/ . After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week. JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. -- Carson-Newman coach Ken Sparks has retired, ending a 37-season career in which he won 338 games to rank fifth on the NCAAs all-time list.Its been an unbelievable journey, Sparks said Monday during a news conference at the athletic complex that has been named after him.The only coaches with more career wins are John Gagliardi (489), Joe Paterno (409), Eddie Robinson (408) and Bobby Bowden (377). Sparks went 338-99-2 and had the most wins of any active coach.Sparks, 72, had continued coaching even after announcing in 2012 that he had cancer. Sparks said Monday that he was at peace and indicated his health issues played a role in his decision to retire now.Last week, after missing three days of practice and being in the hospital four straight days, I said `Im not a very good football coach. These guys deserve a better coach, Sparks said. Thats how the decision came about. My goal was, and youve heard me say this before, my goal was to die on the practice field and they roll me over in the kudzu and (his wife) Carol wouldnt have to worry about funeral arrangements. Were going to see what the Lord has for us.Before Carson-Newman entered the NCAA ranks in 1993, Sparks led the Eagles to five NAIA nationaal championships -- in 1983, 1984, 1986, 1988 and 1989. Luca Sbisa Jersey. . Carson-Newman was an NAIA runner-up in 1987 and lost in the NCAA Division II championship game in 1996, 1998 and 1999. Carson-Newman reached the Division II semifinals in 2009.Sparks teams won 21 South Atlantic Conference championships and earned 25 NCAA or NAIA playoff appearances.Carson-Newman went 4-7 this year, only the second losing season in Sparks career.Sparks was inducted into the inaugural NCAA Division II Hall of Fame coaches class in 2010 along with Northwest Missouri States Mel Tjeerdsma and West Alabamas Bobby Wallace. Sparks also is in the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame and the NAIA Hall of Fame.This is a day that none of us looked forward to as Carson-Newman football fans and supporters, but its a day we honor and a day we rejoice in, Carson-Newman athletic director Allen Morgan said. Its a day we honor Ken and the legacy he is leaving for how he has touched young mens lives in a way far greater than wins on a football field.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

USD $21) for intoxication, after he streaked naked at Pallekele Stadium on Tuesday evening.Alex James vaulted over two sets of metal barriers and made his way to the middle of the ground fully clothed, after rain had stopped play on the first day, before beginning to pose near the venues covered square. With no police or security personnel in the vicinity at the time, James then proceeded to remove his clothes and made a brief nude jaunt, which featured a dive on the rubberised tarpaulin covers.Upon seeing a policeman approach him, James then collected his clothing, scaled the barriers, and was seen high-fiving other Australia supporters on the bank. He was later arrested, taken to the police station, and was sentenced by the Kandy Additional Magistrate on Wednesday.Streaking is virtually non-existent at Sri Lankan sports venues, and public nudity deemed offensive, especially in the vicinity of children.

BUIES CREEK, N. Raekwon McMillan Dolphins Jersey .C. -- Corey Gensler scored 18 points and added four steals to help lead Campbell to an easy 90-59 win over Johnson & Wales (NC) on Monday night.Gensler accounted for all of his points from 3-point range, finishing a perfect 6-for-6.

This story is part of ESPN The Magazines Oct. DeShone Kizer Browns Jersey . 31 NBA Preview Issue. Subscribe today!New York IslandersOverall: 84 Title track: 61 Ownership: 110 Coaching:?108 Players: 63 Fan relations: 62 Affordability: 99 Stadium experience: 118 Bang for the buck:?19 Change from last year: -11The Islanders bolted Nassau Coliseum, played their first season in Brooklyn and posted their first playoff series victory in 23 years. But the loyal fans who made the commute on the Long Island Rail Road were far from pleased with the Barclays Center and the way ownership handled the transition, dragging down the overall ranking 11 points to 84th.Whats goodBuilding around fan favorite John Tavares, the Islanders have had back-to-back 100-point seasons for the first time since winning the Stanley Cup in 1981 and 1982. Once-maligned GM Garth Snow has put together a Stanley Cup contender, and the No. 61 rank in title track represents a 32-point leap from two years ago. Coach Jack Capuano seems to get little love (108th ranking), which is a little surprising since he has lasted five consecutive seasons behind the bench, the first time that has happened since the legendary Al Arbour did it from 1990-1994. The Islanders average ticket price of $49.21 was almost $13 below the league average, which is even more impressive given the cost of living in New York City. Throw in a winning team, and you get a 13-point jump in Bang for the Buck to 19th overall.Whats badThe Islanders ranked 28th in NHL attendance last season with a 13,626 average, nearly 2,000 less than their final campaign at Nassau Coliseum. Fans have complained about the dim lighting and the numerous obstructed seats at the Barclays Center. Brett Yormark, the CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment, didnt help things when he suggested in an interview that those with blocked sightlines can watch the game on your mobile device. The game is on the scoreboard. Nassau Coliseum routinely ranked at or near the bottom of our standings in stadium experience, and Barclays Center has carried on the tradition with the worst rating among NHL teams. And a triple-digit ranking in ownership was the fans goodbye present to Charles Wang, who officially handed the reins to Jon Ledecky (uncle of Olympic gold medalist Katie Ledecky) and college roommate Scott Malkin.Whats newDespite the winning streaks, fans still arent convinced about this teams roster, which is down 23 spots from last year. But look no further than Ledecky, who promised at an introductory news conference that he will make the Islanders a world-class organization. And next year it might be stadium experience on the rise: There already are rumblings that the club could leave the Barclays Center after three seasons by exercising an opt-out clause. Newsday reported over the summer that Ledecky and Malkin have had talks about possibly moving the team to a new arena near Citi Field or Belmont Park. Wherever they skate, if the winning continues, the Islanders are a team that is worth the trip.Next: New York Rangers?| Full rankingsJabrill Peppers Womens Jersey .

Star halfback Shaun Johnson has made light of a niggling thigh complaint with a brilliant solo try to help carry the Warriors to a 27-18 NRL victory over an under-manned Gold Coast in Auckland on Saturday. Julién Davenport Texans Jersey .With 14 minutes to go and the home side up by only two points, Johnson received the ball 60 metres out and went on a weaving run to the tryline.Second-rower Bodene Thompson added the Warriors fourth try before halfback Cameron Cullen got a late consolation for the visitors.Johnson had the final say with a last-minute field goal.The win was an important one for the Warriors, with both sides having come into the latest round sitting two points outside the top eight.It allowed them to give back-rower Simon Mannering a fitting celebration for his 250th first-grade appearance.Mannering stood in as captain, with regular skipper Ryan Hoffman struck down by a virus.The Titans were forced into several injury-related changes, with co-captains William Zillman (foot) and Nathan Friend (hand), and up-and-coming half Ash Taylor (groin) among those withdrawn.They also lost Karl Lawton early in the second half, the 20-year-old centre stretched off on his NRL debut with a leg injury.That left them down to 15, with interchange forward Ryan Simpkins having gone off just before halftime with concussion.The Titans made a spectacular start as former Kiwi Josh Hoffman, moved to fullback for Zillman, gathered a grubber on his own line and raced away for a try in the second minute.Warriors centre Blake Ayshford replied with his own runaway effort after an intercept on his own 20m mark.The Titans targeted the oppositions right edge with their kicking game, and the tactic paid off when Nene Macdonald climbed high to pluck in a Tyrone Roberts cross-kick for a try.But the Warriors again tied up the game, winger Tuimoala Lolohea dotting down in the corner to make the score 10-10 at halftime.Roberts and Issac Luke traded penalties to keep the match locked up.Another Luke penalty put the Warriors ahead for the first time before Johnson scored what turned out to be the decisive try. Deshaun Watson Youth Jersey .

SOUTHERN PINES, N. Wayne Gallman Womens Jersey .C. -- Peggy Kirk Bell, a leading golf instructor who owned Pine Needles Resort and spent a lifetime as the premier advocate for womens golf, has died at her home at Pine Needles. She was 95.Kelly Miller, her son-in-law and the club president at Pine Needles and Mid Pines, informed club members that she died Wednesday. The Pilot newspaper first reported Kirk Bells death.Kirk Bell was one of the top amateurs in womens golf in the years before the LPGA Tour was formed. She won the Ohio Amateur three times, captured the 1949 Titleholders by two shots over Patty Berg, and won the North and South Womens Amateur. She also played on the 1950 Curtis Cup team.She and her late husband, Warren Bell, bought the Pine Needles Resort and developed it into a top destination. Pine Needles held the U.S. Womens Open three times; the winners were Annika Sorenstam in 1996, Karrie Webb in 2001 and Cristie Kerr in 2007.A legend in the game. You were a special person in my life. You will be missed, Kerr tweeted.The Bell family later purchased Mid Pines.A native of Findlay, Ohio, Kirk Bell was a gifted athlete with limited playing opportunities. She wanted to teach physical education and tried golf at age 17.I found it more of a challenge than any sport Id tried, she said in The Gift of Golf, a biography about her. You simply couldnt haul off and slam the ball like you would a softball. It took dexterity, but you had to apply it properly. Power was nothing without timing in golf.Kirk Bell attended Rollins College in Florida and built an impressive amateur career.She got married in 1953, and the Bells bought Pine Needles. Kirk Bell helped developed a concept called Golfaris, golf instruction taught by women for women.

This story is part of ESPN The Magazines Oct. Derek Rivers Youth Jersey . 12 Owners Issue. Subscribe today!Colorado AvalancheOverall:?77 Title track:?39 Ownership:?92 Coaching: 69 Players:?108 Fan relations: 75 Affordability: 94 Stadium experience:?87 Bang for the buck: 32 Change from last year: -26For the second year in a row, Colorado managed to fall in all eight franchise rankings categories. Although its not quite as bad as 2015s 35-spot drop, the Avalanche are down another 26 places, and thats added up to quite a free fall. Only two years ago, Colorado was 16th overall. Ownership will have a tough time stopping this from snowballing.Whats goodDespite finishing second-to-last in the Central Division this past season, the Avalanche were just six points away from a playoff berth. Thanks to that competitive year and the teams past success, the franchise ranks fairly high in title track. The past is quickly becoming more distant, though: Colorados most recent division championship came in 2013, and the team hasnt earned a conference title since winning the Stanley Cup in the 2000-01 season. At least the Avalanche are a pretty good value, with tickets nearly $15 below the league average and a .500 record despite a late-season collapse.Whats badThe Avalanche share the Pepsi Center with the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Mammoth, a pro lacrosse team, as well as a slew of events that come to the area each year. Because of that, the arena itself, seating included, isnt particularly geared toward hockey (its ranked just 87th this year), and renovations to improve that feel arent likely. As far as ownership goes -- its ranked 92nd -- perhaps thats out of solidarity with St. Louis residents -- the Avs owner, Stan Kroenke, relocated the citys NFL franchise to Los Angeles this past offseason. His shrewd demeanor is good for business but doesnt jibe well with fans or, at times, the cities that host his teams.Whats newUnfortunately for Colorado, whats new is also whats worse -- much worse. The resignation of Patrick Roy in mid-August left the Avalanche scrambling for a coach, and they settled on Jared Bednar, who led the AHL-champion Lake Erie Monsters to the Calder Cup the previous season. The title is nice, but putting a second-tier league coach in charge isnt an awe-inspiring move (fans reacted by dropping the Avs coaching rank 47 spots). The roster, while talented, remains unproven, and the collapse at the end of the past season is reason for a fair amount of skepticism (the players, too, are down 38 spots, all the way to 108th).Next: Calgary Flames?| Full rankings Derek Rivers Patriots Jersey . The quest begins with what is supposed to be an easy one, although Germany has traditionally been a stubborn opponent to Canadian teams at international tournaments. Antonio Garcia Jersey . At a Manhattan federal court hearing, attorney Jordan Siev said his law office has gotten more evidence nearly every day to support its lawsuit accusing MLB and Selig of going on a "witch hunt" to ruin Rodriguezs reputation and career. He said the defendants went "way over the line. http://www.patriotsauthoritystore.com/Authentic-Deatrich-Wise-Jr-Patriots-Jersey/ . But the quarterback hopes to stay involved in football after officially calling it quits Tuesday. "Id love to look at those opportunities as they arise," Pierce said in an interview from his Winnipeg eatery. Suddenly Yorkshire are the masters of white-ball cricket. Alex Lees and his players will arrive at Edgbaston for Finals Day in the NatWest Blast expecting to do well and, to add to their pleasure, there is also a 50-over semi-final against Surrey in prospect.But it was not always this way. Just two months ago Yorkshires best chance of getting points in the NatWest T20 Blast seemed to be an abandonment. So how has the team that was regularly beaten turned into the team to beat? What has changed?Having won five of 14 games and finished next to bottom of the North Group in 2015, Yorkshire had won none of their first five matches this year (although two were abandoned) and seemed to have little chance of qualifying for the quarter-finals.Then they played Derbyshire at Headingley on June 19 and, when rain swept across the ground, their nine-over score gave them a grimy one-run Duckworth-Lewis victory. That was the first of seven wins Yorkshire were to record in this years Blast and, following last Thursdays demolition of Glamorgan at Cardiff, they will arriving at Edgbaston on Saturday in confident mood.I think most people were writing us off but we had that self-belief that if we got one win, we would get on a roll and do well, said the T20 skipper, Lees. As a team weve bought into the ideology of backing yourself and backing your team-mate. The key is to do the same thing when things are not going so well.We sat down and had a couple of chats and said that we knew we were better than the way we had performed. Weve been poor since 2012. Weve done it as a team, as a collective, and thats our blue print.All of which is fine, of course, but rather similar things might have been said by any skipper whose county was playing pretty dismal short-form cricket. And yes, T20 is a game of frustratingly daft narrow margins. The key is to ensure that, far more often than not, you end up on the right side of them. The reasons go deeper than that.Lets go back to that game against Derbyshire because it was important for more than just the result. The game saw the return to Yorkshires T20 team of Adam Lyth, whose confidence had received a fillip when he had hit successive 50-over hundreds against Northamptonshire and Lancashire a few days previously. Lyth blasted 30 off 16 balls, hitting three fours and a couple of sixes. Muck or nettles, he has carried on blasting ever since.But the match against Derbyshire also saw the return to Yorkshires T20 side of Azeem Rafiq, who had been released a couple of years earlier, yet whose form has been such since his re-engagement that he has been awarded his first-team cap. Rafiq is currently bowling his short-form overs at 6.9 runs apiece and he has taken 13 wickets, making him second only to Adil Rashid and Tim Bresnan in Yorkshires list of successful T20 bowlers this season. Azeem was a revelation for us, particularly in those middle overs with Adil, Lees said. He gives you consistency. His bowling has made my jjob a lot easier. Deatrich Wise Jr. Jersey. . I was assured hed be back at some point in the next few years but I didnt know in what capacity and now hes been rewarded with his first-team cap.And the biggest thing for Adam is that hes been backed. There is a carefree attitude that were going to go out and have a good time. The same thing can be said of David Willey, who didnt get the runs he would have liked early in the season.There is a sense in all this that Yorkshires cricketers have taken the brakes off in T20 cricket. Those brakes may not have been applied at all times in all games but they do not need to be. You only need to have four bad overs in the short-form stuff and its Goodnight, Vienna.Perhaps something of this approach was communicated to Lyth and his players by Kane Williamson, the New Zealand leader to whose team talks Rafiq has paid particular tribute.Theres never just one voice in our dressing room, said Lees. There are 11 players who voice their opinion and thats the Yorkshire way in all our cricket. Kane came in at the right time, he was a great character to have around the dressing room and he gave us a bit of direction as to the way we should go, particularly when we were unsure.Kane give us that calmness as well as his own view. We got on a roll when no one believed we should be at a Finals Day and here we are.The results of any change of attitude have been different with each player but they have been particularly evident with two cricketers at very different stages of their career. Jack Leaning has found that hitting sixes is something he can do on a regular basis while Bresnan is suddenly mixing up his deliveries like a drunken postman.Jacks gone from nudging and nurdling it around to whacking it out of the park, said Lees. Hes found his method in white-ball cricket and that can only come from confidence and hes now very confident in that format.Tim is experienced and he probably looked at how he went last year and just adapted things a little bit. May be he has mixed it up a little bit. This year it seems hes bowling tight and he was exceptional in the game at Cardiff but in his own words his first ball was a pie and he got a wicket with it. Last year, it would have gone out of the ground.Liam Plunkett has been some rapid spells, proof that simple, searing pace has a home in Twenty20 and Lees himself, in his first season as a youthful captain, has worked on his own game well enough to enter Finals Day as Yorkshires leading run-scorer.Some would argue that Yorkshire are the form horses at this years Finals Day and they will be boosted by the availability of Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow et al. Whatever else, they will play without fear and with a brio that was absent in the grim days of May and early June. It has been some transformation but at Edgbaston it will receive its most searching test. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
