Mominul Haque hits 181 in 4th test as Bangladesh cruise to 380

Mominul Haque hits 181 in 4th test as Bangladesh cruise to 380

CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh Mominul Haque’s maiden century finished on 181 as Bangladesh strolled to 380 7 against New Zealand on the third day of the first test on Friday.

Bangladesh trailed New Zealand’s first innings by only 89 runs, with a draw looking likely unless a bowler from either side turns some tricks at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.

After tea, Mominul could add only nine runs to his total before he cheap soccer jerseys was trapped lbw by left youth Barcelona Jersey arm fast bowler Corey Anderson to the relief of the visitors. Mominul and captain Mushfiqur Rahim combined for 121 for the fifth wicket to keep Bangladesh on track to catch New Zealand’s first innings of 469.

Mushfiqur fell in the next over, well caught in the slips by Ross Taylor off Doug Bracewell, who finished with 2 71 while Anderson took 2 23 on debut.

Mominul’s century in his fourth test was the third highest by a Bangladeshi. Mushfiqur scored 200 and Mohammad Ashraful 190 in a draw 2014 world cup jerseys in Sri Lanka in March.

Mominul, whose previous best score was 64, reached 100 from 98 balls, the second fastest by a Bangladeshi in tests.

In all, he hit 27 boundaries to amass his total in 274 balls, and was unhappy to miss out on a double century.

“Definitely, I am frustrated, I don’t know if I will get another chance like this,” Mominul said.

“I got bad balls yesterday. They had overcome their weaknesses and threw good balls in places today.”

New Zealand opener Hamish Rutherford said they were still hopeful of winning.

“We still are in a very good position, the pitch is very flat, and it hasn’t broken up as much as everyone would have thought,” Rutherford said. “So leading into tomorrow, 89 runs ahead, a couple of wickets early would put us in a very good state.”

Bangladesh started slow but steady in the morning session when Marshall Ayub was the only wicket to fall, caught behind off Anderson for 25, ending a partnership of 126 runs with Mominul.

Shakib Al Hasan fell cheaply on 19 in the first over after lunch at 180 4, then Mominul and Mushfiqur saw Bangladesh past tea.

Nasir Hossain was the last wicket of the day as he played some shots but fell for 46 at 371 7 to Kane Williamson, to give debutant spinner Ish Sodhi his first wicket. Sodhi has conceded four an over.

Nigerians 7′s team prepare for World Cup qualifiers

Nigerians 7′s team prepare for World Cup qualifiers

On a school playing fields a team of amateurs and semi pros are training hard for the chance to take on the might of New Zealand and Fiji at the Rugby 7′s World Cup.

Comprised entirely of ex pats, most living in and around Croydon, Nigeria is one qualifying tournament away from making their inaugural World Cup appearance.

Coach Mark Dean, from Sanderstead, formed the squad last year and as an ex Trinity pupil, secured the Shirley school’s playing fields for his team ahead of the Africa Regional qualifiers thisThe 34 year old said: “I got involved with Nigeria in August last year. At short notice I was approached by two Nigerian players I had worked with on the UK circuit after a team based out of

Nigeria was refused visas to fly to a tournament.

“I put together an ex pat squad and took them to a tournament in Morocco on three days notice, and we finished third, winning our spot in the qualifiers.”

With a year of training behind the team, who include three Croydon based club players David and Emmanuel Akinluyi, who play for Old Whitgiftians, and teammate Temi Okenla, will be hoping to go one

better once again in Morocco.

Mr Dean, who has played for Warlingham, South African side Amanzimtotti, The Royal Navy team and represented Surrey said: “I am very grateful to Trinity in running the training camp this week.

“The squad framework has been 2014 world cup jerseys in place since 2011 but they have probably only had two weeks together over that time so the camp at Trinity School represents a huge step forward in developingFacing the Nigerian team is World Series competitors Zimbabwe, Morocco, Tunisia and Namibia, alongside Ivory Coast, Zambia and Madagascar, youth Barcelona Jersey with only two teams making the World Cup in Russia nextSuccess will also see the Black Stallions qualify for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014.

Mr Dean said: “Should we make it we would be very keen to work with Trinity School again in that situation as their cheap soccer jerseys facilities for rugby are top class and the staff incredibly helpful with.

Vunipola and Sharples in line to face Fiji

Vunipola and Sharples in line to cheap 2014 world cup jerseys soccer jerseys face Fiji

FORMER Thornbury Broncos player Mako Vunipola looks set to make his England debut against Fiji at Twickenham on Saturday youth Barcelona Jersey after being named amongst the replacements.

Charlie Sharples has been named in the starting lineup and will win his third cap in the first autumn international, but his former Dursley youth team mate Ben Morgan has been released to play for Gloucester in their LV=Cup game against the Ospreys.

Saracens prop Vunipola, who grew up in Thornbury and attended The Castle School, is one of three uncapped players in the 23 man matchday squad, with Leicester hooker Tom Youngs handed a start and Wasps back row Joe Launchbury named as a replacement.

England head coach Stuart Lancaster has made five changes to the starting lineup from the final Test against South Africa in the summer with Sharples, who missed that tour after undergoing shoulder surgery, replacing the suspended Chris Ashton on the right wing.

Sharples, 23, won his first cap for England in a World Cup warm up match against Wales last August and, although former boss Martin Johnson did not take him to New Zealand, he was brought back into the squad by Lancaster for the Six Nations this year and made his first start in the 24 22 win in France.

Thomas Waldrom keeps his place at No8 after deposing 23 year old Morgan at the end of the series in South Africa, but the former Katharine Lady Berkeley’s School pupil is expected to be given a chance at some point in the series with games against Australia, South Africa and world champions New Zealand still to come.

Lancaster said: “Congratulations to Tom Youngs, who has made a great transition from centre to hooker in a short period and deserves his chance, as do Joe Launchbury and Mako Vunipola, who we are pleased to be able to include in the squad.”

“This QBE International series will be a real marker of where we are as a squad. We are playing four back to back matches in four weeks against the top teams in the world and we are confident we can rise to the challenge. The foundations are in place, now it’s time for us to execute and deliver.

“Fiji is a good first Test for us and we can’t wait to play back at Twickenham. The atmosphere against Ireland back in March was superb and you can’t underestimate what it means to the players to have 82,000 people and the nation behind them.”

With the starting lineup averaging just 14 caps per man with eight and a half caps per man on the bench, it is one of the most inexperienced England sides in the professional era.

5 things to know

5 things to know

It’s one of the reasons why so many fans are glad the BCS goes away after this season. Warning: The College Football Playoff will have some of the same qualities. In fact, before the new system even started, it had an impact on the old system.

Five things to know about the last BCS matchups:

As BCS executive director Bill Hancock loves to say, the BCS got it right. Unlike past title games, there is no controversy about this matchup. The Seminoles have been historically dominant and have a chance to become the third major college team to win each of its games by at least 14 points. The Tigers have had a wild ride and plenty of close calls, but they won the best conference and have steadily improved this season. Florida State opens as an 8 1/2 point favorite.

2) Rose Bowl: No. 5 Stanford (11 2) vs. No. 4 Michigan State (12 1).

Old school Rose Bowl. The Pac 12 champion vs. the Big Ten champion. The weather will be perfect. The sun will set on the San Gabriel Mountains. For about four hours, all will be right with Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany’s world.

3) Orange Bowl: No. 12 Clemson (10 2) vs. No. 7 Ohio State (12 1).

The Buckeyes blew a chance to play Florida State for the national title, but found a soft landing spot in South Florida. Clemson might seem like an odd pick, considering its losses to Florida State and South Carolina. But Clemson plays in the Atlantic Coast Conference, and the ACC and Orange Bowl have a lucrative agreement in the new postseason system. The deal that keeps the Orange Bowl relevant. Orange Bowl officials were going to respect that relationship, and happily match the Tigers with one of college football’s most popular powerhouse programs.

4) Sugar Bowl: No. 4 Alabama (11 1) vs. No. 11 Oklahoma (10 2).

Next season the Sugar Bowl becomes to the Southeastern Conference and Big 12 what the Rose Bowl is to the Big Ten and Pac 12. Those leagues will send their champions or another highly ranked team to New Orleans any year the Sugar Bowl does not host a national semifinal. It’s a really good deal for the Sugar Bowl. Taking Alabama was an obvious pick to replace SEC champion Auburn. Sugar Bowl organizers could have made the Crimson Tide Oregon matchup that fans have been craving, but instead they went with the Sooners, much to the delight of their Big 12 partners.

5) Fiesta Bowl: No. 6 Baylor (11 1) vs. No. 15 UCF (11 1).

Baylor makes its first BCS appearance by winning the Big 12. UCF is the final beneficiary of the Big East’s automatic bid to the BCS. The Big East is no more, whittled away by conference realignment and renamed the American Athletic Conference. In the college football playoff, the American will compete with the Mountain West, Conference USA, the Sun Belt and the Mid youth Barcelona Jersey American cheap soccer jerseys Conference for one guaranteed spot in what will be six 2014 world cup jerseys marquee bowl games _ two semifinals and four New Year’s games. The Knights are a good team, but without much of a following. But they were guaranteed a spot and Fiesta organizers had the last choice, so think of this as sort of a prearranged marriage.

Saints march on

Saints march on

Adam Lallana and Jay Rodriguez strikes secured Southampton a third successive Premier League victory, albeit in somewhat fortuitous fashion in a 2 0 win over Swansea.

The clash between two sides known for their attractive style lived up the billing, with play flowing from end to end in a pulsating encounter at St Mary’s.

Swansea dominated proceedings after Lallana’s first half strike, only for substitute Rodriguez to make the most of slack defending to secure a 2 0 win for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

The result was harsh on Michael Laudrup’s team, who showed no signs of a hangover from Thursday’s Europa League clash against St Gallen as they pressed from the outset.

After Lallana latched onto a neat ball from Steven Davis to put Saints ahead, Artur Boruc was forced into fine saves to stop Michu and Wilfried Bony levelling.

Nathan Dyer also hit the inside of the post as half time approached, with Swansea continuing in the ascendancy after the break.

However, Southampton kept the Welsh side at bay to earn a fifth clean sheet of the term, with Rodriguez slotting home seven minutes from time after seeing a Victor Wanyama goal dubiously ruled out.

It was harsh scoreline on a Swansea side that made five changes from the win over St Gallen.

One of those to come in was Saints academy graduate Dyer, who burst down the right flank early on only to be blocked off by Dejan Lovren.

Jonjo Shelvey tested Boruc soon after as Swansea controlled the early tempo, but Saints soon settled into their stride.

Michel Vorm was fortunate to avoid punishment after appearing to handle outside the box under pressure, before Dani Osvaldo wriggled free and fired into the side netting from an acute angle.

An intelligent Rickie Lambert pass just evaded Lallana as Saints continued to threaten, finding the breakthrough in the 19th minute.

Morgan Schneiderlin cushioned a header back to Davis, whose cheap soccer jerseys delicate chipped pass found Lallana and the Saints captain rifled home.

It was just the hosts’ second goal from open play this season, but they almost had another soon after as Lallana came close to latching onto a Lambert knock back.

The match was now flowing from end to end and Swansea were testing the Southampton defence with increasing regularity.

Jose Fonte had to react quickly to head behind a threatening Wayne Routledge cross, before Boruc fantastically denied a header from Michu, wearing a protective scrum cap after receiving a head injury on Thursday.

The Polish goalkeeper was again called into action to thwart hopeful efforts from Shelvey and Bony, as well as smother a low Dyer cross.

Lambert saw a long range free kick parried away when Saints returned to the attack, only for Swansea to come agonisingly close to levelling.

Dyer collected a clever backheel from Bony and had time to strike a left footed effort that hit the inside of the post and flew across the goal before going out for a goal kick.

Davis and Lambert had attempts for Saints, only for Swansea to again threaten as a Dyer cross found Bony, whose powerful header was just pushed around the post by Boruc.

Shelvey, Dyer and Bony youth Barcelona Jersey all had efforts early in the second half as Swansea continued in the ascendancy after Jose Canas was booked for a lunge on Osvaldo.

Saints were struggling to deal with the hosts’ possession game and Lovren was given a yellow card for bringing down Bony on the edge of the box.

Shelvey floated the resulting free kick just over, with James Ward Prowse replacing Osvaldo as Pochettino looked to stem the flow.

The change appeared to work as Swansea attacked with less regularity and Saints managed to secure a better foothold on the game.

The 2014 world cup jerseys hosts thought they had made it 2 0 in the 76th minute when Wanyama prodded home Ward Prowse’s corner, which should not have been awarded in the first place.

337 million Powerball ticket bought in Michigan

337 million Powerball ticket bought in Michigan

Gajda didn’t know if he bought the winner. lottery jackpot ever.

The winning numbers were 6, 27, 46, 51 and 56, with a Powerball of 21. Only one winning jackpot ticket was sold for Wednesday night’s drawing.

“Now we wait to hear from the winner,” she said from the state lottery headquarters in Lansing. “The winner has to call us because we have no idea who bought the winning ticket.”

The gas station will also get a $50,000 prize when the winner comes forward. Lottery officials do not for security reasons release when the ticket was sold, Brancato said.

But once the person claims the prize, his or her name will be released, she added.

“This is important for the transparency of the lottery, so people see we do have winners and we do in fact pay prizes to actual people,” Brancato said.

The lumpsum payout for the prize would be $241 million, minus a 25 percent federal tax and 4.35 percent state tax. Brancato said lottery officials did not have an estimate on the payment option for the $337 million prize.

Sam Odish, 29, owner of the Sunoco station, said he’s happy for the winner.

“We’re happy for our store, happy for Lapeer city,” he said, adding that the $50,000 will be split up among family. “Hopefully it’s a customer from Lapeer, and we’re happy for the customer.”

Marianne Erskine, 48, who works at a hospital across the street from the station, said she wishes she would have bought a ticket as usual. The mother of three skipped this week.

“You snooze, you lose,” she said, still smiling about her misfortune. “I hope it goes to somebody who really needs it. I’d love to see that. I know people who are really struggling. We’re making ends meet, but I know people who can’t.”

The jackpot will now start over again at $40 million. We will delete comments containing obscenities, personal attacks and inappropriate or offensive remarks.
