Cricket News Ashes Test: Smith’s brave 92 after sickening blow leaves England with slender lead

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. London: Australia batsman Steve Smith just missed his third Ashes hundred in as many innings after returning following a sickening blow to the neck from a Jofra Archer bouncer on the fourth day of the second Test against England at Lord’s on Saturday. Smith’s 92 was the centrepiece of Australia’s 250 all out in reply to England’s first innings 258.The star batsman had made 80 when he was felled by a bouncer from World Cup-winner Archer, making his Test debut, timed at 92.4 mph. The ball struck him on the side of the neck and head.Smith, fell face forward onto the ground. He was wearing a helmet without the additional neck protection that was introduced following the death of Phillip Hughes after his former Australia team-mate was hit by a bouncer in a 2014 domestic Sheffield Shield match in Sydney.Smith, who had marked his comeback Test following a 12-month ball-tampering ban, with innings of 144 and 142 in Australia’s 251-run win in the series opener at Edgbaston last week, received several minutes of on-field treatment involving both teams’ medical staff.He got to his feet but eventually retired hurt, with Smith receiving a generous round of applause as he walked back into the pavilion.Archer had previously struck Smith, then on 70, on his unprotected forearm with another bouncer during a fiery eight-over spell that cost 31 runs. And it was that injury, not the blow to the neck, which an Australia team spokesman said prevented Smith from fielding at the start of England’s second innings.“Steve Smith is off the field because of his sore left forearm and has been taken for a precautionary X-ray of that arm after being struck there during his innings,” the spokesman said.Earlier, Smith’ resumed his innings as soon as he could when Peter Siddle’s exit left Australia 218-7. From the second and third balls he faced on his return after 46 minutes off the field, Smith hit two fours off Chris Woakes—a slammed shot over mid-on followed by a backfoot drive through the covers.But on 92, facing his ninth ball, Smith shouldered arms to a Woakes delivery that nipped back and was plumb lbw to leave Australia 234-8. In total, he faced 161 balls including 14 fours.Smith turned towards the pavilion, signalling that he was reviewing umpire Chris Gaffaney’s decision almost as an after-thought before replays confirmed his dismissal.This series, the first of the ICC’s new World Test Championship, has seen the introduction of concussion protocols designed to allow injured batsmen to be replaced by a substitute—previously restricted to fielding duty alone. Smith assessed on pitch The Australia spokesman insisted Smith’s health had not been put at undue risk by letting him resume his innings. “Steve was hit on the neck below the left ear,” the spokesman said.“He was assessed lying on the pitch at the instructions of team doctor Richard Saw. Dr Saw made the precautionary decision to remove Steve from the field of play to have him further assessed under Cricket Australia’s head impact protocol.“Steve then passed his assessments and will now be monitored on an ongoing basis, as is routine,” he saidStuart Broad, leading the attack in the absence of the injured James Anderson, England’s all-time leading wicket-taker, took 4-65 in 27.3 overs and Woakes 3-61 in 19.Archer finished with figures of 2-59 in 29. Australia had resumed Saturday on 80-4 with Smith 12 not out and Matthew Wade, who also made a hundred at Edgbaston, unbeaten on nought.Broad soon had Wade caught low down by Rory Burns at third slip for an innings of six that took 45 balls. Smith, amid some typically extravagant ‘leaves’, completed his fifty when he lofted spinner Jack Leach over long-on for four. last_img read more

Blake Griffin struggles in return, but Clippers beat Wizards

first_imgChris Paul’s 3-pointer with 22.9 seconds left at the shot-clock buzzer gave the Clippers a 113-107 lead, and that was all she wrote.“The play we ran didn’t necessarily work,” Paul said. “We had three seconds on the shot clock, so it was just, ‘Let me get the ball, see if I can put it in.’ Luckily, it went in.”Washington (37-40) is in 10th place in the Eastern Conference standings and fell 3 1/2 games out of a playoff spot with the loss, pending eighth-place Indiana’s game against the Knicks later Sunday.Paul led the Clippers (48-28) with 27 points and 12 assists, Jamal Crawford scored 19 off the bench, J.J. Redick scored 18 and DeAndre Jordan had 12 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks.Jeff Green, who scored four points, played only 1 1/2 minutes of the fourth quarter because of a cut on his left hand. Marcin Gortat scored 21 for the Wizards, Markieff Morris had 18 points, John Wall 15 points and 13 assists.The talk of the day centered on Griffin’s return. The Clippers went 30-15 without him. He showed glances of the Griffin the league has come to know. With 6:51 to play in the first quarter, he threw down a dunk off a lob pass from Paul in transition.“He was open, tried to find him,” Paul said.Griffin shared his thoughts, as he saw the lob from Paul.“It was like, ‘Please don’t throw it too high,’” he said, drawing laughter. “Normally I’m ready to go for those, but sprinting like full-court and then going up, I was a little worried.”Griffin sustained a partially torn left quad tendon on Christmas night against the Lakers. It’s better, but still torn.“I feel good right now,” he said post-game. “But the key is tomorrow, the key is the next few days. That’s my biggest concern.”Doc Rivers assessed Griffin’s performance.“I thought he looked fine,” he said. “His conditioning was OK, his athleticism was good. But his timing was a little off, so it’s what it is.”It was obvious at times that Griffin was not happy with his play. His shot was short and he had butterfingers on a couple of passes.“I am glad he is hard on himself,” Rivers said. “It is what makes him Blake. Blake is going to be Blake. Players know who they are. When they do not play well or play to their standards, they get frustrated and they get over it.“That is what makes them great. It is the average guys that do not get over it. The great ones tend to get frustrated and then are fine the next day.”Jordan suggested Griffin’s return was fuel for his team’s fire.“He has been out for what feels like the entire year, but our energy was definitely a lot higher than what it has been the past couple of weeks,” Jordan said.As for the Wizards, time is running out on their playoff chances.“The fat lady hasn’t started singing yet,” said guard Bradley Beal, who scored eight points on just 2-of-16 shooting. “Some crazy things have happened at the end of the season, so anything can happen.”The Clippers shot 50.6 percent, the Wizards 45.7. All eyes were on Blake Griffin on Sunday afternoon. It was his first game back with the Clippers after he missed 45 consecutive games with two injuries, and a four-game suspension because he fractured his right hand on the face of Matias Testi – the team assistant equipment manager.Griffin understandably struggled at times. He finished with six points on 2 of 7 shooting, five rebounds and four assists in 24 1/2 minutes. But the Clippers defeated the hungry Washington Wizards 114-109 before a sellout crowd of 19,060 at Staples Center.“It was just nice to be back out there,” Griffin said. “That’s really the main takeaway. I had a blast being out there. Rhythm was pretty bad, my conditioning was a little bit better than I thought it was going to be. But not great by any means.”The victory clinched homecourt advantage for the Clippers in the first round of the playoffs. The Wizards are fighting for their playoff lives, so it wasn’t all that shocking to see them cut a 12-point deficit (104-92) with 3:47 to play to just three (110-107) with 47.4 seconds to play.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

What Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball had to say about his shoe line at ComplexCon

first_imgWhile it seemed like most of the audience weren’t fans of the shoe, Ball shared his own take on producing it.“It was on a short timetable, so I mean it’s what we came up with,” he said to cheers and applause from the audience, who while they didn’t seem to be fans of the shoe, nevertheless supported his entrepreneurial spirit.Wale, however, put things in humorous sneaker perspective after calling Ball a great ball player and complimenting his black-owned business.“Are they anywhere in the realm of top 30, 40, 50 of the year? (expletive) no,” he said, as the audience laughed and clapped.Here’s what else happened on the first day of ComplexCon.

The most important thing about this shoe is that it’s their own brand,” Kent said.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Lonzo Ball practices, but won’t return to Lakers’ lineup until after All-Star break

first_img“It was good to see him out there again,” Walton said. “Still a little sore, but still making good progress. We’re not going to play him (Wednesday) with a back-to-back and then a week off coming up. The progress was great, but it just doesn’t make sense to risk it right now,”The Lakers didn’t have a full-court scrimmage before departing for New Orleans, but Walton said they did engage in some half-court defensive drills that included some physical play. Or as Walton put it, “Guys were getting after it.”Ball “looked good, but there was still a little bit of discomfort,” Walton said. Ball teamed with Isaiah Thomas and Walton said they worked well together, adding, “When you put skilled, intelligent basketball players on the same team, they seem to make themselves and their unit look good.”By the time reporters were granted access to the gym, practice was all but over and most of the players, including Ball, had retreated to the locker room. Reporters were treated to the sight of Brandon Ingram sinking an impressive percentage of his shots from 3-point range.So, there was no independent verification of Walton’s assessment of Ball’s effectiveness.“We’re going to continue to treat him and he’ll continue to come in and get work done and get shots up,” Walton said. “When his body is ready, then he’ll play again. I can’t tell you whether that’s going to be the first game (after the All-Star break), the second game or the third game.“It’s whenever his body is ready to get after it again.”SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEWWalton said he would stick with the same starting lineup that produced victories in four of the Lakers’ past five games, which means Thomas will play a reserve role for the second game since he and Channing Frye were acquired from the Cleveland Cavaliers last Thursday.Asked about a role for Frye, who didn’t play in the Lakers’ loss at Dallas on Saturday, Walton said:“Channing is another player who could really stretch the floor for us. I’m interested in getting him and (Kyle Kuzma) on the floor together as a (power forward/center combination), and play with that type of spacing. He’s a veteran who’s going to be great in the locker room. He already is.“He never shuts up, but it’s always positive. He’s just a great guy to have around.”Walton and Frye were teammates at the University of Arizona.“Luke’s brain is built for basketball,” Frye said. “He would throw passes in college and I would be, like, ‘What did you even see?’ Then finally you see it on film two or three times and you were, like, ‘Oh, he saw that three plays ago and expected me to see that, and my 19-year-old self to think like him.“Luke’s done a great job with these guys (the Lakers). They’re starting to buy in. They’re starting to move the heck out of the ball. They’re moving like missiles all over the court and I think you’re starting to see these guys develop and get confidence inside the system.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersNo.Good enough to play in the Rising Stars game during the NBA’s All-Star Weekend on Friday?No.Well, Walton admitted he didn’t know whose decision it was as to whether Ball could participate in the All-Star extravaganza at Staples Center. But he did say he doubted it would happen since the rookie point guard hasn’t been cleared to play by the team’s medical personnel.Walton stuck to the Lakers’ standard party line that Ball wouldn’t be back in their lineup until after the All-Star break, but he was a little hazy on when that might be.

Winks reveals ‘honest’ chat with Mourinho turned his form around

first_imgSTRAIGHT-TALKER Jose Mourinho has put Harry Winks back on the right track.The Spurs midfielder revealed a quiet word from the boss is behind his timely improvement ahead of the business end of the season for club and country.2 Harry Winks revealed straight talking Jose Mourinho put him back on the right trackCredit: AFP or licensorsWinks has played the full 90 minutes in nine of Tottenham’s last ten games and said: “From the beginning I was a little in and out.“The manager pulled me, we were having a couple of words and it was all just an honest, light-hearted conversation that he does with every player.SPURS NEWS LIVE: Follow for the latest news on Spurs“The manager did tell me what he thinks I needed to do. It started with training, just to up my levels in training.“I just think my whole level and just the intensity as well, which I said to the manager that I agreed.“It is something I went back and did it. He is honest enough to tell me.“Since we had that conversation things have improved and I have been playing more and it is important that I keep those levels and intensity because I want to stay in the team.“His honesty is something that everyone appreciates and respects massively.“Just like everyone, still now I have to earn his trust because I know that with one or two poor performances I could be back out and someone else back in.”Winks had known only Mauricio Pochettino as head coach at Spurs, so it was natural that he, and others, would take time to adjust to the demands of Mourinho.But the England international is relishing the opportunity to develop his defensive and tactical qualities — especially when they lead to big results like last month’s 2-0 win over champions Manchester City.Winks said: “Since the new manager has come in, he has been brilliant with everyone, he’s lifted everyone, tried to inject a bit more confidence in the team as well, and for myself too.“He prefers defensive shape and being organised. That is something we needed to improve on anyway because we were shipping too many goals.2“When we play Man City, De Bruyne is very good at getting in the pockets behind full-backs and it was maybe my role to track that area and pick up that space and stop them from utilising his ability to cross from there.“Maybe another game might be to be more front foot and more aggressive in the pressing. Every game we have a different kind of tactical strategy and it is not just bog standard, rigid.“It is great to be able to have those different kinds of tactical elements of my game to add to it.”England boss Gareth Southgate will hope to benefit from the education Winks is receiving from Mourinho.English football has struggled to produce, and rarely celebrated, midfielders like Xavi and Iniesta, the heartbeat of Spain’s World Cup-winning side.Winks has been compared to both and said: “People like Michael Carrick get a lot of recognition after they retire and they are more players’ players as such.“I think in England especially there is always an impetus to straight away look for the attack-minded players, to look at the goalscorers and the people who get the assists.“But every team needs that someone who can be that link between both defence and attack.”The success of Winks in that role may be crucial to England’s chances of success at Euro 2020.But before all that, he and Spurs need to focus on getting goals — and the next ten days could define their season.MOST READ IN FOOTBALLTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’ExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himToday’s home game against Wolves is important to their hopes of securing Champions League football next season.On Wednesday they host Norwich in an FA Cup fifth-round tie and the following Tuesday they go to Leipzig for the return leg of their Champions League last-16 clash.Winks said: “It will be a difficult task to do well in all three.
