The Black Caps produced a disciplined bowling display and they did it without regular spearhead Tim Southee. New Zealand, surprisingly included two spinners in their squad with opening bowler Tim Southee dropped. That was the inaugural test at the ground‚ in January 2008‚ when seamers Chris Martin‚ Kyle Mills and Jacob Oram took nine of Bangladesh's wickets in the first innings and left-arm spinner Daniel Vettori claimed four in the second dig.
Pakistan hosted PSL's final last night at Gaddafi Stadium of Lahore , where Peshawar Zalmi beat Quetta Gladiators to the title before a massive crowd after a spectacular closing ceremony. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had given the green signal to Pakistan Cricket Board and PSL organizers to hold the final in Lahore and this was followed up by Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Pakistan Army, Rangers, security related agencies, police and others had gathered to make foolproof security ...
But, it is slim pickings on free agency. The 49ers, meanwhile, now have no quarterbacks signed for the upcoming season. Hoyer will likely be in good position to open the year as the starting quarterback in Santa Clara as well. The Jets are in full rebuild mode and Hoyer might make sense as a one or two-year option. The Bears and 49ers are set to play this season at Soldier Field, where Hoyer figures to square off with his now-former team.
The British government's annual budget is one of the most high-profile, choreographed events in the country's political calendar and for much of the past century has taken place in the spring, but Wednesday's budget is meant to be the last to be held in the spring, with the event being pushed into the autumn.
Stan Kroenke is also a huge admirer and could yet still convince the Frenchman to stay. "He (Wenger) has more reason to answer". Speculation regarding the future of the Gunners boss was increasing on an nearly daily basis with fan unrest at a high after a succession of disappointing results.
It makes you reflect on the people that have helped you and been with you all of this way". One minute and two seconds into the second quarter, Nowitzki hit a baseline jumper over Larry Nance Jr . There are only five other players that have reached the same milestone. At the risk of getting sappy, I'd like to say that Dirk Nowitzki has been a joy to watch throughout his career, that he has legitimately brightened my life by being really good at the children's game I obsessively watch.
Sri Lanka made late inroads in Bangladesh's order after being largely frustrated by Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar's century stand on day two of the first Test in Galle. When Tamim took the catch on long-on, he was running the risk of touching the boundary rope, but he successfully tossed the ball in the air and grabbed it again coming inside the field.
Hello friends. We know it's been another awful men's basketball season, and we understand many of you curl up into the fetal position and start crying any time you hear the words "USF" and "basketball" in the same sentence. If you want to prove you're smarter than me, Jon, David, Patrick or anyone else in the staff, come sign up for the Corn Nation Tourney Bracket . The NCAA Tournament is always exciting, and big upsets always happen, which is what makes these bracket challenges so exciting ...
It's still hard to know where we are in the pecking order, but I think we are there or thereabouts. "During the last three years we've won five races, Ferrari have won three, Mercedes have won almost 60 races". The feeling is getting better and I feel the vehicle is starting to evolve a bit, so that is nice. "So that was all going pretty well", Ricciardo explained.
If the Cowboys release him without the designation, they would clear $5.1 million in cap space. Thursday is the first day the Cowboys can designate Romo as a June 1 cut. The two have been linked on a consistent basis over the past several months with recent suggestions indicating Denver would likely consider signing the veteran should he be released (more on that here).
Are we supposed to be surprised? The NFL's "tampering period" which allows teams to speak with other team's free agents, but not sign them, started at noon today. It's also possible the Bills could move on from Wood, a fan favorite and locker room leader who is nevertheless set to hit free agency after this coming season and would clear $3 million in cap space if he were to be released.
Newcastle were firm favourites for this clash, being the side with the best away record in the division, but it was the home side who came closest to breaking the deadlock in the opening phase, with Bournemouth loanee Lewis Grabban heading wide of the target from 6 yards in the first minute, wasting the Royals' best chance to go in front.
With less than $21 million heading into the start of free agency, it's likely the Bills would need to back load the salary cap charges to sign Wagner. Since taking over the starting gig in his second season, the 27-year-old has missed just two games. If the Texans can land Wagner, he would be the penciled in right tackle for the 2017, upgrading the position over what the team had in 2016.
Republicans and Democrats alike say they oppose giving tax breaks to the hockey team, while sticking Glendale taxpayers with an empty arena and $230 million in debt. "They have all of the tools that they need over there, they just need more support for that whole area", said Gendreau. Coyotes majority owner Andrew Barroway issued a statement agreeing with Bettman's assessment and pushing for the passing of SB1149.
Pundits in Spain, prior to the match, had suggested that Zidane should drop one of the " BBC " (Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo) and include an additional midfielder in a 4-4-2 formation. During a four-month injury absence for Napoli's Polish global striker Arkadiusz Milik, Mertens was pushed up front and has responded by taking his league tally to 18 goals.
He is expected to draw plenty of interest from National Football League scouts once he hits the field in Norman. Teams often will adjust the times to account for the differences in surfaces between the Scouting Combine and other locations; Mixon ran on a synthetic surface similar to the field at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Technically, those players are under contract with their respective clubs until 4 p.m. ET on Thursday when the new league year begins. During the next three days, teams and agents can express interest and work out the structure of a contract with any player who is scheduled to become a free agent.
Paul Merson has slammed Arsene Wenger's "embarrassing" decision to drop Alexis Sanchez for Arsenal's crucial Premier League clash against Liverpool . Sanchez joined Arsenal in 2014 from Barcelona and the Gunners are desperate to have him re-sign with his current contract up in June 2018. Playing Olivier Giroud made sense but Wenger said he wanted to play more direct and Alexis is the most direct player I know.
We are preparing to win. David Wagner's team have managed to get the better of Leeds twice in the Championship in the present campaign as they beat their more illustrious rivals 1-0 at Elland Road in September before edging out Garry Monk's side 2-1 at the John Smith's Stadium last month.

With a new tandem of first-time decision-makers in place (coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch), the 49ers are looking for a new quarterback to lead them into the next era. The 49ers may be willing to give it up to get Cousins, and it is definitely a storyline to watch. Let us not forget that when Cousins was selected by the Redskins in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, and he was supposed to be the backup insurance policy to Robert Griffin III - the can't miss future star.
That means Calais Campbell would be unlikely to sign here (but could if they went the tackle route with Beachum), but the Broncos could certainly nab Chris Baker and Bennie Logan and upgrade defensive end and nose tackle, and pursuing a mid-tier guard like Larry Warford would likely be ideal.
Last week, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport said they want a first-round draft pick in return for the wide receiver, but it's now clear that a lower pick in the first round isn't enough for the Saints. Cooks would instantly give the Titans a legitimate deep threat and upgrade the Titans' offense. The 23-year-old Cooks has spent his entire three-year National Football League career in New Orleans as it stands today.
After posting a 4.51 40-yard dash time while weighing in at 240 pounds, he all but guaranteed a first-round selection in this April's draft. Now, there's potential for him to fall out of the first round. He ran a 4.61 in the 40-yard dash, which was very underwhelming, especially when compared to John Ross' number. But with Jones and Tate already under contract, choosing Ross - or any other receiver for that matter - is a decision that likely would be raked by some analysts and especially ...
Kohli was full of praise for his bowlers for their efforts. The Australians had their task cut out, as they started the day with the target of 188, which seemed quite achievable. "I feel that the partnership between Ajinkya and Pujara, in a situation where the momentum was against us in the series, was outstanding", Kohli said after the victory.
Tony Bellew ran at me and I hit with a left hook that dropped him but by then... "The way people look at Micky Ward-Arturo Gatti, at Roberto Duran-Sugar Ray Leonard, at Joe Frazier-Muhammad Ali". I had my preconceived ideas, but after sharing a ring with him he's a true warrior like I am. I've got no other aches and pains apart from the leg. He said if he was to win he'd give me a rematch.
As Pro Football Talk's Michael David Smith noted , Garrett's 1.63-second time in the first 10 yards may be even more impressive, since explosion matters more for defensive ends than straightaway speed. "I've been in those situations before and I've made those plays". Speaking of sub-4.3, that's exactly what Ross ran in headline-grabbing fashion on Saturday, breaking Chris Johnson's combine record of 4.24 with an eye-popping 4.22 in the 40-yard dash.
Where can I watch the Barcelona v PSG game? Depending on whether or not PSG can ride the inevitable early wave of Barcelona pressure, Cavani might not need to score in order for the Ligue 1 giants to advance to the quarterfinals. Unai Emery has an experience playing against Barcelona from his days at Sevilla, Valencia and Almeria and he certainly doesn't think that this is over - We are playing against a great team and I have great respect for FC Barcelona.
Manchester City are the only English side who look likely to reach the quarter-finals after they beat Monaco 5-3 in their first-leg clash but Arsenal trail Bayern Munich 5-1 and Leicester are 2-1 down to Sevilla. Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale has told The Sun he spoke to former Bernabeu stars David Beckham and Steve McManaman before signing because he wanted to "avoid the mistakes" made by some British players in Spain previously.
It might not be Wenger's usual style, but surely there was a case to be made for fronting up last night? We just want to try to focus on the football. As much as fans are hurting tonight, you might well assume that the Arsenal dressing room was a sombre place, with hard silences and face etched with shame.
The Tigers play Mississippi State on Wednesday at 6 p.m.in the opening game of the tournament. He entered the season with 19 or more wins in each of the last four seasons, but only reached the NCAA Tournament once (2014-15), when the Tigers made a second-round exit.
