He’ll bat No.3.”Commenting on Pattinson, Langer said: “It’s a great story isn’t it, coming back from where he was as a young bowler, the back surgeries, to more than likely being selected for this Test match, it’s a great story.”Khawaja passed a fitness test on his hamstring on Monday and will bat at No.3 in the first Test.Meanwhile, Australia’s star pacer Mitchell Starc is likely to miss out on a berth in the starting XI. Pattinson will likely to partner Pat Cummins with Starc and Josh Hazlewood fighting it out between them and Peter Siddle for the third pacers’ spot.“There’s probably three to be fair, Starcy, Peter Siddle and Josh Hazlewood, for one spot,” coach Langer was quoted as saying by The Australian.With 27 wickets, Starc was the highest wicket-taker at the just-concluded World Cup.

Women’s Soccer: Badgers upset No. 8 Gophers in overtime shutout

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team continued Big Ten conference play Saturday and knocked off No. 8 Minnesota Golden Gophers 1-0 on the road. Going into Saturday’s game, the Badgers owned a record of 1-2-1 in the Big Ten and were coming off a 3-2 loss to the Indiana Hoosiers. In a defensive shutout that went into overtime, the Badgers finally broke the tie behind a goal from freshman forward Dani Rhodes and pulled off the upset over the Gophers (9-3-1, 3-1-1 Big Ten).Wisconsin (5-4-4, 2-2-1 Big Ten) continued their dominance on defense but struggled to find the net. Goalkeeper Caitlyn Clem played an excellent game for the Badgers, recording three diving saves that secured the victory. The physical battle was one that saw 31 total fouls between both teams and proved to be another classic in an already historic rivalry.Women’s Soccer: Freshman forward Dani Rhodes defies first-year hurdles for WisconsinAt this time last year, Dani Rhodes was setting records in both soccer and basketball for Waukesha West High School. Read…The Badgers created scoring chances for themselves early in the first half. Midfielders Rose Lavelle and Micaela Powers, along with defender Camryn Biegalski, were all able to rattle off a few shots but were unable to find the back of the net in regulation. Lavelle led the team with three shots followed by forward Emily Borgmann with two. The second half was just as dry as each offense took only a few opportunities — Wisconsin shooting four times and Minnesota tallying five. The game remained scoreless until the 99th minute when Rhodes found the back of the net inside the six yard box. The goal was Rhodes’ second of the year with her first goal coming in the season opener against Illinois State just minutes into the game, which also proved to be the game-winner. The victory improved Wisconsin to .500 in conference play which currently puts them in seventh in the Big Ten standings. A win like this against an eighth-ranked conference opponent could give the Badgers the spark they need to contend for a consecutive Big Ten regular season championship. Despite struggling offensively for the better half of the season, the Badgers have still outscored their opponents 15-12. This is good news for a team who constantly creates chances offensively and is complimented by a defense that has recorded five shutouts and allowed multiple goals in a single game only three times. In their next match, Wisconsin will be back home in the McClimon Soccer Complex to take on another difficult opponent in the Nebraska Cornhuskers (9-4-0, 3-2-0 Big Ten) Oct. 6. The Badgers have won the last two meetings against the Cornhuskers with their last defeat against them coming in 2013. The game will start at 7 p.m. and can be viewed on BTN.last_img read more

Sarri Still Commands Players’ Respect after Kepa Drama, Says Luiz

first_imgThe Italian coach and Kepa later said the incident was the result of a misunderstanding and Luiz was adamant the players are on Sarri’s side.“The coach has the power over the group. He has our respect,” Luiz said. “For me, there is not a problem here for that. We all believe in his philosophy, we all believe in the way he wants us to play.“That’s why we did a great game against the best team in Europe at the moment. Apart from that, it was a misunderstanding and we all want to do what is best for Chelsea.”Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack believes the Chelsea hierarchy needs to take a strong stance on the matter, to support Sarri.“It was not a good picture for Chelsea,” Ballack told talkSPORT radio. “The board has to say something because it is really, really important that the players respect the coach and respect each other. Something shouldn’t happen like that.”Kepa saved Leroy Sane’s penalty in the shootout, but could have done better with Sergio Aguero’s effort that slipped under his body as City retained the trophy after a goalless draw.“It is never easy for us to listen from afar,” Luiz added about the Kepa incident. “I didn’t know if the coach wanted to make the change because it was his decision or because he (Kepa) had already been on the floor twice.“Kepa was saying ‘no, I’m good, I can stay on the pitch’, but from far you can’t understand.“I’m sure if Kepa knew the coach wished to change him because it was his decision, he would have come off because he is a great professional, he is a great boy and would respect that.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram David Luiz (right) celebrates scoring in the 2-0 win over Manchester City, Saturday David Luiz has said that Kepa Arrizabalaga’s refusal to be substituted during the Carabao League Cup final against Manchester City does not show that Maurizio Sarri has lost the respect of his Chelsea players.Sarri’s position is precarious after a run of poor results but his team put in a valiant performance in Sunday’s match against City, who had beaten the Blues 6-0 just two weeks earlier.City retained the trophy with a 4-3 penalty shootout win at Wembley, but the match was overshadowed by a bizarre incident when Kepa declined to go off, sparking an angry response from the manager.last_img read more

LeBron James, Cavaliers hand Clippers their 7th straight loss, in OT

first_imgJames made a free throw to open overtime — he went 1 for 5 at the line — and give Cleveland its first lead. Then, after Love made his two 3-pointers, James sealed the Cavs’ fifth win in six games with a jumper.“Well defended,” Rivers said. “It’s LeBron James.” Blake Griffin scored 23 and DeAndre Jordan had 20 points and 22 rebounds for the Clippers, who didn’t give up the lead until the first minute of overtime. The Clippers had chances to put the Cavs away in regulation, but they didn’t execute down the stretch and then had defensive breakdowns in overtime.“They made some big 3s,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “You have to give them credit. That’s why they’ve been in a lot of Finals.”The Cavaliers again played without starting point guard Derrick Rose, who will miss at least two more weeks with a nagging left ankle injury.The Cavs spent all night chasing the Clippers and caught them at 105-all when Love grabbed an offensive rebound and fed James, who dropped an uncontested 3-pointer with 47 seconds left.Griffin missed tough shots on consecutive possessions, giving Cleveland one last chance in regulation but James missed an off-balance left-hander just before the horn. Wade’s aggressiveness in the second quarter helped the Cavs shake off an atrocious start.
