Kohli, Ishant put rampant India on verge of series sweep

first_imgBy Amlan ChakrabortyKOLKATA, India (Reuters) – India captain Virat Kohli embellished the pink-ball test with a sparkling century before his quick bowlers reduced Bangladesh to 152-6 in their second innings as the hosts closed in on a 2-0 series sweep on day two of the second and final Test yesterday.After India declared their first innings on 347-9 in their maiden day-night Test, Bangladesh risked losing the match inside two days after slumping spectacularly to 14-4 in the seventh over.But Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah, who made 39 before a hamstring injury forced him to retire hurt, batted resolutely to force a third day at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens.Bangladesh, dismissed for 106 in the first innings, still trail their hosts by 89 runs.Ishant Sharma, who claimed 5-22 in the first innings, was the wrecker-in-chief in the second as well, returning 4-39 with an impeccable display of seam bowling.Mushfiqur will resume on 59 today, hoping to continue the fight though India look set to seal their 12th consecutive home series victory.India’s top order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara was not surprised how his pace bowling teammates continued to torment Bangladesh.“Our aim was very simple – to bowl to them in the right areas and try and make them play as many balls as possible,” said Pujara.“We know the ball was going to swing and it was important to control the swing and be accurate with our line and length.”Earlier, Kohli smashed a magnificent 136 and added 99 runs with Ajinkya Rahane who fell for a fluent 51.The India captain cover-drove Ebadot Hossain to reach 99 and, with the crowd chanting his name, took two off spinner Taijul Islam to bring up his 27th Test century, and 20th as captain.He removed his helmet to soak up the applause, then continued the celebrations shortly afterwards by hitting Abu Jayed for four consecutive boundaries.Ebadot dismissed Kohli when Taijul moved from deep square leg and hurled himself into the air to take a stunning catch.Kohli hit 18 fours in his 194-ball vigil, outlasting the entire Bangladesh team who had folded in 30.3 overs in their first innings.Armed with the heavily-lacquered ball, Ishant then mowed down the top order to put Bangladesh on the mat.His second-innings victims included Mominul Haque, who made a nightmarish debut as Bangladesh’s Test captain, being dismissed for a duck in both innings.Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah, however, refused to throw in the towel, displaying stomach for the fight that was lacking among their teammates.“We’re still 90-odd runs behind, tomorrow we’ll try to avoid an innings defeat and make them bat again,” Bangladesh quick Al-Amin Hossain said.Bangladesh have had to call two concussion substitutes after Liton Das and Nayeem Hasan sustained nasty blows to the helmet in the first innings.BANGLADESH 1st innings 106INDIA 1st innings o/n 174 for 3Mayank Agarwal c Mehidy Hasan b Al-Amin Hossain 14Rohit Sharma lbw Ebadat Hossain 21Cheteshwar Pujara c Shadman Islam b Ebadat Hossain 55Virat Kohli c Taijul Islam b Ebadat Hossain 136Ajinkya Rahane c Ebadat Hossain b Taijul Islam 51Ravindra Jadeja b Abu Jayed 12Wriddhiman Saha not out 17Ravichandran Ashwin lbw Al-Amin Hossain 9Umesh Yadav c Shadman Islam b Abu Jayed 0Ishant Sharma lbw Al-Amin Hossain 0Mohammed Shami not out 10Extras: (b-12, lb-2, w-8) 22Total: (nine wkts decl., 89.4 overs) 347Fall of wickets: 1-26, 2-43, 3-137, 4-236, 5-289, 6-308, 7-329, 8-330, 9-331.Bowling: Al-Amin Hossain 22.4-3-85-3 (w-1), Abu Jayed 21-6-77-2, Ebadat Hossain 21-3-91-3 (w-3), Taijul Islam 25-2-80-1.BANGLADESH 2nd inningsShadman Islam lbw Ishant Sharma 0Imrul Kayes c Virat Kohli b Ishant Sharma 5Mominul Haque c Wriddhiman Saha b Ishant Sharma 0Mohammad Mithun c Mohammed Shami b Umesh Yadav 6Mushfiqur Rahim not out 59Mahmudullah, retired hurt 39Mehidy Hasan c Virat Kohli b Ishant Sharma 15Taijul Islam c Ajinkya Rahane b Umesh Yadav 10Extras: (b-8, lb-5, w-5) 18Total: (six wkts, 32.3 overs) 152Fall of wickets: 1-0, 2-2, 3-9, 4-13, 5-133, 6-152.Bowling: Inshant Sharma 9-1-39- 4, Umesh Yadav 10.3-0-40-2, Mohammed Shami 8-0-42-0 (w-1), Ravichandran Ashwin 5-0-18-0.last_img read more

Smith stars as Lions roar – Russell now leading wicket-taker

first_img However, KKR were lifted to 158 for four on the strength of a 134-run partnership between Shakib Al Hasan and Yusuf Pathan, who were undefeated on 66 and 63, respectively. Lions have now climbed to the top of the IPL standings following their win over KKR. Despite his team’s defeat, West Indies opener Andre Russell celebrated a milestone by moving to the top of the table for the most wickets taken this season. Russell had Suresh Raina caught at fine leg for 14 to finish with one wicket for 21 runs and taking his tally of scalps to 14. Meanwhile, West Indies allrounder Kieron Pollard wants his franchise Mumbai Indians to forget their excruciating loss to Sunrisers Hyderabad yesterday. Mumbai crashed to a massive 85-run defeat to Sunrisers at the ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam They were bowled out for 92 in 16.3 overs, the lowest total of the season, after Sunrisers posted 177 for three in their 20 overs. “To be honest, sometimes in these sort of games, you can find many faults, and at the end of the day, we come to play cricket, we come to give a 100 per cent,” said Pollard in the post-game news conference. “Today is one of the games where we don’t want to actually pinpoint anything. We just want to actually forget it.” Sunrisers’ innings were given momentum from a solid opening stand between David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan, which yielded 85 runs. Dhawan was not out on 82, while early aggressor Warner was caught by pollard two runs short of his half century. “This is the back end of the tournament and we need confidence. We don’t need guys with their heads down now,” said Pollard, who scored 11, one of only three batsmen to post low double-digit figures. “We don’t need people to be playing the blame game at this point in time. We need all hands on deck in order to get through the back end of the tournament.” Ashish Nehra, three for 15, and Mustafizur Rahman, three for 16, were the main destroyers of Mumbai’s innings. “For me, personally, I think it’s one of those things we just have to forget,” said the West Indies cricketer. “We will sit down again and look at the performances, look at how the wicket behaved and see how we need to improve”. Sunrisers’ huge win has taken them to the top of the IPL table. KOLKATA, India (CMC): West Indies opener Dwayne Smith contributed with the bat again as Gujarat Lions outclassed Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by five wickets in the Indian Premier League (IPL) yesterday. Smith raced to 27 from 18 balls to kick off a methodical run chase in which Lions coasted to 164 for five in 18 overs, after KKR posted 158 for four from 20 overs at Eden Gardens. The Barbadian batsman struck four fours and cleared the ropes once in a 42-run opening partnership with Brendon McCullum, who scored 29 from 24 balls. The partnership ended when Smith was beaten in flight by Shakib al Hasan and lost his stumps in the sixth over. Smith, who bowled two overs for Lions, also picked up a wicket for 14 runs. Dinesh Karthik’s top scored with a busy 51 from 29 balls to seal Lions’ seventh win, with five wickets in hand and 12 balls to spare. Earlier Knight Riders were reduced to 24 for four by the end of the power play as a result of impressive swing bowling by Praveen Kumar and Dhawal Kulkarni, who exploited overcast skies.

Doctor: Hernandez’s brain was severely damaged by disease

first_imgRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompson Ann McKee, director Boston University’s center for research into the degenerative brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, addresses an audience on the school’s campus Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017 about the study of NFL football player Aaron Hernandez’s brain, projected on a screen, behind right, in Boston. McKee says Hernandez suffered severe damage to parts of the brain that play an important role in memory, impulse control and behavior. The cross section of the brain projected behind left is labeled a normal 27 year old. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)BOSTON — Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez suffered substantial damage to parts of the brain that affect memory, judgment and behavior from the most severe case of a degenerative disease linked to head blows ever found in someone so young, a researcher said Thursday.Dr. Ann McKee, director of Boston University’s CTE Center, stressed she could not “connect the dots” between the brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy and the behavior of the 27-year-old who hanged himself in April while serving life in prison for murder.ADVERTISEMENT But McKee said CTE had significantly impacted key parts of Hernandez’s brain, including the hippocampus — which is associated with memory — and the frontal lobe, which is involved in impulse control, judgment and behavior.“We can say collectively, in our collective experience, that individuals with CTE — and CTE of this severity — have difficulty with impulse control, decision-making, inhibition of impulses or aggression, often emotional volatility and rage behaviors,” said McKee, who has studied hundreds of brains from football players, college athletes and even younger players, donated after their deaths.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogHernandez hanged himself in prison days after he was acquitted in the 2012 drive-by shootings of two men in Boston and just hours before his former teammates visited the White House to celebrate their latest Super Bowl victory.Prosecutors contended he gunned the two men down after one accidentally spilled a drink on him in a nightclub — and then got a tattoo of a handgun and the words “God Forgives” to commemorate the crime.

But McKee had not publicly discussed her findings until a conference at the university on Thursday.After Hernandez’s CTE diagnosis, his attorneys filed a lawsuit against the NFL and football helmet maker Riddell, accusing them of failing to warn Hernandez about the dangers of football. The lawsuit, which seeks damages for Hernandez’s young daughter, said he experienced a “chaotic and horrendous existence” because of his disease.ADVERTISEMENT Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson While the outside of Hernandez’s brain appeared normal, the inside was riddled with CTE, said McKee, who showed images of Hernandez’s brain next to those of a typical 27-year-old.In Hernandez’s brain, there was evidence of previous small hemorrhages, which is associated with head impacts, she said. Other parts, like the hippocampus, had begun to shrink and large holes were found in his brain’s membrane, McKee said.Before Hernandez, the youngest brain they’ve examined that showed such severe CTE damage was 46 years old, McKee said.“These are very unusual findings to see in an individual of this age,” McKee said. “We’ve never seen this in our 468 brains, except in individuals some 20 years older,” she said.Hernandez inherited a genetic profile that may have made him more susceptible to the disease, McKee said.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next View commentslast_img read more
