Australia's pacemen were unable to garner much from the pitch and were despatched all over the ground as the old ball came to the end of its life.

The decision to appoint both the former IOA presidents was taken at the IOA's Annual General Body Meeting here. Kalmadi was given a clean chit by the Parliament's audit watchdog on Tuesday.

The Raiders believed enough in McGloin to place a second-round tender on him as a restricted free agent this past offseason, but he has had little time on the field since his rookie season in 2013. In September, following the Raiders' win over the Saints, Carr was asked about performing in big moments and referred to Bryant. If a win over Denver is coupled with a loss by New England against Miami, the Raiders would be the top seed and the Super Bowl LI representative from the AFC would go ...
Arsene Wenger says he is "immune to excessive reaction" and will not be distracted as Arsenal attempt to get their faltering Premier League title bid back on track.

Coach Jimbo Fisher put on the full court press to land five-star running back Cam Akers . The conventional wisdom has been that it came down to Florida State and Ole Miss, and the Seminoles' year-long pursuit of Akers won out. Akers exits MS as one of the most productive high school players in the state's history, with 8,140 yards rushing and 78 touchdowns, along with over 5,000 yards passing and 71 touchdowns, in four seasons for Clinton High.
I probably could have given him a better ball and he could have run with it. Which, to me, is absolutely brilliant coaching. Granted, it wasn't as high had it been on CBS or Fox in the same late Sunday afternoon window, but the fact that the game was able to attract viewers on Christmas Day gives NFL Network some food for thought the next time the holiday falls on a Sunday.
Early in the game, Embiid was whistled for a traveling violation while being guarded by Cousins, causing the Sixers rookie to look in the direction of officials for an explanation while he walked back up the court.

Brown's game-winning catch capped a high-scoring fourth quarter in which both teams combined to find the the scoreboard five times.
FC's Craig Burley credits Jose Mourinho. Check out the official Premier League ticket hub . Manchester United record a fourth successive league win for the first time under manager Jose Mourinho. Ibrahimovic still needs to be scoring goals, though, and he's delivering on that side, too. "When such a guy decides to come, I was completely clear that he would be ready and he is ready for more next season".
The Packers quarterback gave Packer nation a scare when he was sandwiched by Viking defenders Danielle Hunter and Eric Kendricks. "We're planning on going to Detroit to win the division, " coach Mike McCarthy said after the win. The Packers were able to do whatever they wanted for most of the game.

Temple ranks 23rd in the AP Poll since winning seven straight games entering their final game of the season. Despite the overall positivity of their respective seasons, the circumstances for each team heading into this game are far from ideal.
However, based on the small sample size Jose Mourinho has afforded us of the 27-year-old wearing red, Hayrapetyan shouldn't have to worry too much about 2017. Daley Blind scored the opener late in the first half, receiving an Ibrahimovic layoff and drilling the ball low into the right corner of the Sunderland net.
I heard Pep Guardiola was here in the stadium tonight. Liverpool were gifted a third goal when Stoke City defender Imbula Wanga netted an own -goal to make it 3-1 to the home said. Liverpool face Manchester City on New Year's Eve as they seek to cut the gap on Premier League leaders Chelsea. It was the Liverpool that we expect to see week in, week out.
After that people assumed that he was taking a dig at his former teammate Kevin Durant who now plays for the Warriors. Westbrook really has no reason to thank Irving, other than to take delight in his former teammate losing in a marquee game.
The victory left Liverpool second in the Premier League table and six points behind leaders Chelsea heading into their clash with Manchester City at Anfield on New Year's Eve. From Lallana and Firmino to Mane and Sturridge, Stoke faced threats from all angles at Anfield. But with three assists and five goals in his last seven games he has clearly added a cutting edge under Klopp.
That message turned into a two-minute speech. The Buckeyes also played in last year's Fiesta Bowl at University of Phoenix Stadium. Ohio State was facing a fourth-down and six-yards-to-go situation at its own 19-yard line in the third quarter against MI when coach Urban Meyer called for a fake punt.
That was before any of us knew just how good rookie Dak Prescott was going to be. It seems like we'll just have to wait for more solid confirmation if these two are actually a couple. "We have gained on it because he's got that much under his belt". Jones has said he does not believe Romo needs a few snaps to shake off the rust after not playing in a regular season game since Thanksgiving a year ago.
The Reds boast a squad full of several incredibly talented players including Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino - not mention a brilliant manager in Jurgen Klopp. There were groans coming from the Kop but Firmino lifted the home fans in the crowd of over 53,000 when his shot was blocked on the line by Peter Crouch and the equaliser then arrived after 34 minutes.
Stoke broke the deadlock after 12 minutes as John Walters glanced home Erik Peters's cross at the near post. Mignolet did much better when former Reds midfielder Joe Allen created space for himself inside the penalty area, the Belgium global parrying the shot far enough away from the waiting Peter Crouch.
You could say that both teams have been fighting and clawing for some period of time to get to this point, to this game, in this stadium, with this amount of significance or what is at stake. It's old school, and I love it. "The team has expectations for us. We're not there yet". "You're given your opportunities". The Steelers/Ravens game is being broadcast on the NFL Network .
Did the Cowboys beating the Lions on Monday night clear anything up for Big Blue? A first-round playoff bye also could be available for the Packers-Lions victor. A win over the NY Giants will prove our Washington Redskins have a winning team and capable of going all the way. Tampa Bay's eight wins have come against teams with 52 wins, and that figure would increase to 58 if it beats the Panthers.
Before the start of the season, there is no way I would have had this team going to the playoffs. "I think everyone wants to talk about home-field advantage and playoffs and stuff like that", McCourty said after the Patriots' 41-3 triumph over the New York Jets.
Hong Kong entry Scallywag - a revamped version of the boat that won the 2011 race as Investec Loyal and was 2015 runner-up as Ragamuffin - is one of four 100-foot supermaxi yachts in the 88-strong field. A spokesman for Wild Oats said her crew had been able to stabilize the keel and the yacht was making around nine knots towards the Australian coast.
Health will be just as important as securing home field advantage for the Patriots to reach the ultimate destination they are aiming for. Judging by Tom Brady's comments Tuesday on WEEI's "Kirk and Callahan", the Patriots quarterback is expecting to play in the regular-season finale, and it wouldn't be surprising if most of New England's starters see ample playing time despite the team already having a first-round playoff bye locked up.
I respect the past and I know he loves the club. 'I care about the way we play and I care about our results and to get the maximum points possible and what happens, happens.

The loss extended the NFL's longest active playoff drought to 17 seasons. Lynn previously served as the Jets' running backs coach under Ryan, whom the Jets fired after the 2014 season. Ryan is coming off of a disappointing 34-31 Christmas Eve loss to the Miami Dolphins. Ryan famously claimed that the Bills had "won the offseason" in July, but was in hot water just two weeks into the season following an 0-2 start.
