LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter arrived for a marathon appeal hearing against a six-year ban from football on Thursday, pledging to accept the verdict of the Court of Arbitration for SportI do hope it will be positive for me, Blatter, sporting a light gray beard, told reporters at around 8 a. Ultra X Yeezy Boost Black .m. (0600 GMT) ahead of a closed-door hearing expected to last several hours. He left almost 15 hours later.It was a long day because the cross examination of the witnesses we have brought, the 80-year-old Blatter said as he left the court. It was specially a long day for me because I was the central person.Blatter declined to speculate on the verdict which is expected within several weeks. He could challenge it in a further appeal to Switzerlands supreme court.He denies wrongdoing in authorizing a $2 million payment to former FIFA vice president Michel Platini in 2011. They claimed it was for backdated and uncontracted salary for work Platini did in advising Blatter from 1999 to 2002.The so-called disloyal payment led Blatter to be put under investigation for criminal mismanagement by Swiss federal prosecutors last September. That investigation is ongoing.FIFAs ethics committee judged the $2 million deal was a conflict of interest and initially banned Blatter and Platini for eight years last December. FIFAs appeal committee cut both bans to six years.Platinis appeal to CAS was already judged in May, when Blatter appeared in person as a witness. Platini promised a further appeal to the Swiss Federal Tribunal after his ban was only cut from six to four years.Platini arrived for Blatters hearing around midday local time to be a witness and left four hours later.I say again the truth and I hope that this time they will listen to us, but I doubt it anyway, Platini said in French.The judging panel in Platinis case noted the absence of any repentance from the former France great.The three-member panel for Blatters case is expected to respect the verdict of the separate panel which judged Platini.Blatters comments Thursday suggest he would not pursue a federal case. Federal judges can intervene only if legal process is abused.We are football players, we learned to win but also we learned to lose and it will not be the end of the world, Blatter said outside CAS.A failure to overturn the ban for Blatter would likely end his hope to one day be named FIFA honorary president by its 211 member federations.The case already ended Platinis chance to replace Blatter as FIFA president, and also forced him out of European governing body UEFA.On Sept. 14, UEFA members will elect a successor to replace Platini who had a mandate through March 2019. By imposing a four-year ban, the CAS panel ensured UEFA had to replace Platini, rather than wait for him to return.The disloyal payment emerged last year when Platini was strongly favored to win the election to replace Blatter, who had announced his departure plans after 17 years as president amid pressure from American and Swiss federal investigations of corruption implicating senior FIFA officials.Both men were questioned at FIFA headquarters last September by Swiss investigators who were waiting for them outside an executive committee meeting.During the turmoil in world football, Platinis right-hand man at UEFA, Gianni Infantino, submitted an election candidacy on the entry deadline day and won the vote in February.Arriving at the hearing with his Zurich-based lawyer Lorenz Erni, Blatter said he hoped the CAS panel will understand that the payment made to Platini was really a debt that we had against him.This is a principle, if you have debts you pay them, Blatter said.

The Lightning are 2-0 so far on a four-game road trip, giving the club five straight wins as the guest and improving Tampas away record this season to 11-8-2.The original ownership group of the Columbus Crew wasnt looking to sell. Instead, Hunt Sports Group was seeking a local investor to purchase a minority share in the MLS franchise. Once businessman Anthony Precourt began to learn more about the club, though, it was only a matter of time before he could convince Hunt Sports Group to sell the entire franchise. The deal was announced on Tuesday, the day before the leagues annual All-Star game. Precourt Sports Ventures LLC will take over operating rights to the franchise from the company run by Clark Hunt, whose late father Lamar Hunt helped establish the league nearly 20 years ago. "We have all the resources we need to make the Crew increasingly relevant locally and nationally, stronger financially and more competitive on the field," Precourt said. "Im going to take this job extremely seriously. It has really consumed me, and trust me, Ive had many sleepless nights over the past few months, thinking about and dreaming about our future together." The Crew, which won the MLS Cup in 2008, was one of the charter members of the league, and Hunt called it a "bittersweet" day for his family and company. But he also made it clear that Hunt Sports Group will remain active in MLS through its ownership of FC Dallas. "We were initially very taken back by his interest," Hunt said, "but after we got to know Anthony, we concluded that he was the right guy to lead the Columbus Crew." During the early days of Major League Soccer, every team was owned by just a few different groups. But over the years, those teams have slowly taken on more local ownership -- Hunt Sports Group sold the franchise in Kansas City in 2006 -- in an attempt to diversify the league. MLS Commissioner Don Garber said following the dedication of futsal courts in Kansas City, Kan., on Tuesday that the sale of the represented a "great development" for the league. "Its been a long time from our days when we had three owners," Garber said, "and now were soon to have 20 teams and with the exception of the 50 per cent ownership that Phil Anschutz has in Houston, we have one team and one owner, and thats been a goal of this league since 2002." The Crew, the only MLS club in Ohio, has experienced plenty of success since its founding. Along with capturing its first MLS Cuup five years ago, it also won the U. http://www.originalsstansmithuk.com/adidas-stan-smith.html. S. Open Cup in 2002 and the Supporters Shield for the leagues best regular-season record on three occasions. The club was also groundbreaking in that it opened the first stadium built specifically for an MLS team in 1999. The facility has been used by the U.S. national team for several competitions, and has served as a blueprint for other soccer-specific stadiums across the league. Garber said that Precourt, whose Precourt Capital Management provides investment management services and private equity investing in the energy sector, began to express interest in expanding into the sports and entertainment realm more than a year ago. Precourt was drawn to MLS, and began discussions with Hunt about four months ago on purchasing part of the Columbus franchise. Over time, Precourt became more enamoured of the league. "We werent pressuring them to sell the team," Garber said, "but as discussions proceeded and Anthony got more involved in MLS and did his due diligence, he said, Hey, I want to own all this team, and he was able to convince the Hunt family to sell him 100 per cent interest in the club." Precourt said that while Columbus is "a very healthy franchise," he has plenty of plans to make it even stronger. The club has close to 7,000 season ticketholders and would like to reach 10,000 in the near future. The new ownership will discuss naming rights options, and that hell look at the Crew brand to see if there are ways to make it more exciting. "Ill tell you that were going to be thoughtful and thorough about the decisions we make," Precourt said. "Were not going to make knee-jerk reactions. Our intent is to come in and have it be status quo here for a while and just assess the situation -- learn, ask a lot of questions, and by season end, well start to build our business plan for the following year." Precourt said that while he lives in Northern California, he plans to establish a second home in Ohio and made a promise to Crew fans that he will "by no means be an absentee owner." "This club, and any sports franchise for that matter, should be a sacred community asset. That is how were going to treat the Crew," he said. "Our goal will be to take the Crew to be one of the standard bearers in the league." Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

LOUIS -- Cardinals cleanup hitter Allen Craig says hes recovered from a foot injury and ready to be put on St.Emmanuel Adebayor will face a late fitness test ahead of Crystal Palaces pivotal relegation clash with Norwich at Selhurst Park. Despite both Palace and Norwich sitting above the relegation zone, neither can afford to slip up with Sunderland and Newcastle desperate to remain in the top flight.Palace have not tasted victory in the Premier League since December 19, and have been dragged into a relegation battle, when earlier in the campaign it seemed the only way was up for Alan Pardews men. The Canaries would be in a far worse predicament if they hadnt mustered a spirited last-gasp victory over Newcastle last time out.With Norwichs woeful record on the road, and the Eagles six-game losing streak at Selhurst Park, picking a winner here is a tall order, but the loser will be looking nervously over their shoulders come Saturday evening.Team newsCrystal Palace striker Emmanuel Adebayor will face a last-minute fitness test before their clash with fellow strugglers Norwich.The forward suffered a slight knock in training this week and could be unavailable on Saturday but manager Alan Pardew is confident he will be available for Wednesdays game with Everton.James McArthur (ankle) and Brede Hangeland (knock) are the only players still on the sidelines due to injury.Norwich will have captain Russell Martin back in the squad for the clash while winger Nathan Redmond could be in contention to start after recovering from a hamstring injury.Full-back Ivo Pinto had been struggling with a virus, but should return.Opta statsCrystal Palaces win over Norwich in the reverse fixture in August was their first victory over the Canaries in the Premier League (D4 L4).Norwich are winless in 14 away league games against Crystal Palace, last winning away to them in May 1996 (D5 L9).Crystal Palace remain the only team in the top four tierrs who are yet to win a game in 2016 (D3 L9). Maglia Giacomo Bonaventura. he Eagles have now gone 14 league games without tasting victory; they last went 15 matches without a league win in March 1998.A league-high nine of Crystal Palaces Premier League goals this season have been scored by defenders.Five of Palaces nine league goals from defenders have come courtesy of Scott Dann, a league-high figure for a defender this season.On home soil, the Eagles have now lost six Premier League games in a row. No team has lost seven home games in a row in the top-flight since Wolves in April 2012 (nine consecutive games).The Canaries have scored a joint-league low one goal in the first 15 minutes of their games (level with Aston Villa), which equates to an outright low three per cent of their total goal haul.Mersons predictionsThis is a massive game. If Norwich win this and Sunderland and Newcastle lose, youd think that would be it really. Both of them are a fluke result away from being relegated. Norwich did well on Saturday, I watched the game and it was a good result. Crystal Palace picked up a decent result as well, so it will be an interesting one.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds 15/2)BettingCrystal Palace are 11/10 with Sky Bet with Norwich 5/2 and the draw trading at 12/5 ahead of their Premier League clash on Saturday. Palace (16/1) have been sucked into the relegation picture after a winless run in their last 14 league matches, while Norwich are now 1/2 to stay up after claiming seven points out of the last nine. The Eagles won convincingly at Carrow Road earlier in the season and are 11/4 to secure a victory by exactly one goal and 9/4 to win to nil.  Check out tips from our Sky Sports pundits and bet here.Crystal Palace v Norwich is included in this weeks Super 6.

BERKELEY, Calif. Nike Air Max 90 Heren Goedkoop . -- With the clock running down and the game on the line, California coach Sonny Dykes trusted his much-maligned defense to deliver.The defense responded with six stops from inside the 10 to seal the win.James Looney stopped Zach Moss from the 1-yard line on the final play of the game to give the Golden Bears their second straight home win against a ranked opponent, 28-23 over No. 18 Utah on Saturday.Im really proud of our defensive players, Dykes said. Those guys have taken a lot of criticism from people. The good thing is they didnt listen to it. They kept working and kept getting better.Dykes declined to use any of his three timeouts late in the game as Utah (4-1, 1-1 Pac-12) drove for a possible winning score, believing a defense that has struggled to stop opponents all season could come up with one key stand for Cal (3-2, 1-1).Im glad Coach Dykes put the faith in us, Looney said. He always has. Its not like its a new thing. He just told us to go out there and play. He knew we were playing well and he put his faith in us and we came through.The Utes had a first-and-goal at the 9 with about 2 minutes left. Dykes considered starting to use timeouts to save time for his high-powered offense that had built the lead behind four TD passes from Davis Webb but decided against it.A pair of short runs and a sack, left the Utes facing a fourth down, but a pass interference in the end zone against Marloshawn Franklin Jr. with 14 seconds gave Utah three more shots from the 2.Moss ran for 1 yard on first down, Troy Williams threw an incomplete pass on second down before Looney ended the game by wrapping up Moss before he even got back to the line of scrimmage.I had a chance to make a play, it was my play to make and I made it, Looney said. It was about time. I need to make those. Im a leader of this defense and I need to make those plays.That set off a wild celebration for Cal and sent the Utes home in disappointment following their first conference loss.A tough game to lose but proud of our guys for how they hung in there and fought back, just like weve done many times previously in the season, Utes coach Kyle Whittingham said. Were just one play away there.THE TAKEAWAYUtah: The Utes came into the game wanting to limit Cals chances and did just that by running 97 plays on offense and holding the ball for 42:01. Utah had a 21-play scoring drive in the first half that took 9:08 and kept Webb off the field.We didnt want to get into a scoring contest with them, Whittingham said. Thats their MO, thats not our MO, and thats exactly how it went down is we did not let that happen.California: The Bears were not their usual selves on offense as they struggled to run the ball and went more than 30 minutes of game time with just one first down. But Webb was good enough the rest of the game, throwing for 306 yards and a pair of scoring strikes to Chad Hansen and Demetris Robertson to give Cal the win.TIMEOUT DISPUTE: A key factor on the final drive was a disputed timeout by Utah. With the clock stopped with 14 seconds left, the officials granted the Utes a timeout they said they never called. By using the teams second timeout there, Utah felt forced to throw on second down from the 1 because it was out of timeouts and Whittingham wanted to make sure he had three shots at the end zone.It limited how many times we couldve run the football, thats what it did, Whittingham said. That was a huge factor.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Utes will likely fall out of the poll following their first loss of the season, while the Bears will need to do more work to get into the rankings for the first time this year.UP NEXTUtah: The Utes return home to take on Arizona next Saturday.California: The Bears seek their first road win when they travel to Oregon State on Saturday.---AP college football website: collegefootball.ap.org Nike Air Max 90 Essential Dames . -- Matt Ryan needed one of the best games of his career to lead the Falcons and their depleted offence out of their three-game losing streak last week.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Nick Saban had a moment early in top-ranked Alabamas season opener when he wondered if it really had been a good idea to go with two freshman quarterbacks. http://www.supercolorrosachiaro.it/adidas-superstar-supercolor-scontate.html .After a shaky first quarter, including dual-threat true freshman Jalen Hurts fumbling on his first play, things worked out for the Crimson Tide in a 52-6 victory over No. 20 Southern Cal.Just dont ask Saban what the quarterback plans are moving forward for the defending national champion Tide.I made a decision for this game that whatever we did at quarterback was for now. ... We made a decision today for now. Thats the only decision we made, Saban said. So Im not speculating on what were going to do in the future.Alabama plays its home opener next Saturday against Western Kentucky before getting into SEC play the following weekend at No. 11 Ole Miss, the only team to beat the Tide in the regular season the last two seasons -- and the Rebels did it both years.Saban never even revealed who was taking the first snap against USC until redshirt freshman Blake Barnett went out for the opening series Saturday night, becoming the youngest starter the coach has used at Alabama. Saban went even younger when, as he had planned, Hurts got into the game on the third series.We think both guys are talented, and we wanted both guys to play in the game, Saban said. When the first quarter was over, I was wondering to myself, `Was this a good plan or a bad plan? Both guys were a little shaky in the beginning.Alabama gained 12 yards on 10 plays in the first quarter, and trailed 3-0 before Hurts overcame the fumble to account for four touchdowns.The Tide led for good when Hurts hit ArDarius Stewart for a 39-yard TD, and found him open again for a 70-yard scoring pass. The quarterback who at this point last year was playing high school ball in Texas, and not in the Dallas Cowboys NFL stadium, added touchdown runs of 7 and 6 yards to make it 38-3 before he exited late in the third quarter.He had the hiccup at the beginning, bit it was his first game, he turned the page and got back on it, Stewart said of the young quarterback.Barnett added a 45-yard touchdown after returning in the third quarter, and finished 5-of-6 passing for 100 yards. Cooper Bateman, the sophomore who started a game last season, completed his only pass for 5 yards and was sacked while playing Bamas final offensive series.With a defense that is still dominating after four players were taken in the first two rounds of the NFL draft last spring, Alabama has more leeway in getting things settled at quarterback.After allowing a field goal on the games opening series, and stopping USCs second drive in Bama territory on linebacker Ryan Andersons fourth-down sack, the Tide allowed only 11 yards on the Trojans seven possessions the rest of the half. Southern Cal was held without a touchdown for the first time since 2007 in its most lopsided loss in a half-century.Of course, Saban was still far from completely satisfied after improving to 10-0 in season openers at Bama.If you want to know the truth about it, I wasnt pleased with the way we played, Saban said.

ATHENS, Ga. Nike Air Max 2016 Sale . -- Jauan Jennings hauled in a 43-yard Hail Mary from Joshua Dobbs on the final play, giving No. 11 Tennessee a stunning 34-31 victory over No. 25 Georgia after the Bulldogs appeared to win the game on a long TD pass of their own with 10 seconds remaining Saturday.The Vols (5-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) rallied from a double-digit deficit for the fourth time in five games, but this was their most improbable comeback yet. The SEC East rivals packed a whole games worth of action into the closing minutes as Tennessee went ahead for the first time all afternoon by recovering a fumble by Georgia (3-2, 1-2) in the end zone with 2:56 to go.Then, after the Bulldogs threw an interception but got the ball back one more time, Jacob Eason tossed a 47-yard touchdown pass to fellow freshman Riley Ridley. With the Sanford Stadium crowd in a frenzy, Tennessee took the kickoff into position to take one shot at the end zone.Dobbs hurled a towering pass that the 6-foot-3 Jennings didnt really have that much trouble bringing down . He leaped above the scrum to make the catch, and then landed on his back for the score that sent the Tennessee bench charging on the field to celebrate.I just know to go get it, Jennings said. I just grabbed the ball and brought it in.Georgia built a 17-0 lead in the first half but was clinging to a 24-21 edge when it got the ball deep in its own territory late in the fourth quarter.Risking a pass from his own end zone, Eason tried to pull the ball down and was crushed by two Tennessee defenders, Derek Barnett and Cortez McDowell. The ball came loose and Corey Vereen fell on it for a touchdown.Turns out, these teams were just getting warmed up.Eason had another turnover, this one an interception by Malik Foreman. But Georgia used a couple of its timeouts, held defensively and got the ball back again. This time, the young quarterback came through, quickly driving the Bulldogs past midfield. After their final timeout, Eason found Ridley streaking behind two defenders down the left sideline, delivering a pass that the young receiver took in stride, seemingly giving Georgia an improbable win.Not so fast.An excessive celebration penalty forced the Bulldogs to kick off from their own 20, and Evan Berrys 20-yard return got the Vols in range to throw one up. When Jennings brought it down, Tennessee coach Butch Davis sank to his knees, overcome with emotion, while Vols running back Alvin Kamara sprawled out on his back, seemingly in disbelief.It was a crazy play, stuff you dream about, Dobbs said.THE TAKEAWAYTennessee: The Vols have shown remarkable resilience while gaining a commanding position in the SEC East. They keep getting off to sluggish starts, but keep finding ways to win. Now, they have victories over both Florida and Georgia, likely to be their two leading challengers in the division race. That not only puts Tennessee ahead in the standings, but provides a tiebreaker edge that could come in handy by the end of the season.Georgia: The Bulldogs have now lost two in a row in the SEC, a huge blow to their hopes of contending for a division championship in Kirby Smarts first season as coach. It will be interesting to see how they bounce back from such a devastating loss.POLL IMPLICATIONSTennessee could move back into the Top 10, while Georgia is sure to tumble out of the rankings for the first time this season when The Associated Press poll comes out Sunday. The Bulldogs barely hung on to the final spot after their big loss at Ole Miss.UP NEXTTennessee: The Vols are facing their third straight game against a ranked opponent, and another tough one on the road, when they travel to College Station to take on No. 9 Texas A&M (5-0). It doesnt get any easier after that, either. No. 1 Alabama visits Neyland Stadium on Oct. 15, finishing off the toughest part of Tennessees schedule.Georgia: The Bulldogs hit the road to face another SEC East rival, South Carolina.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .

Down by seven with 90 seconds left in regulation, thats where they looked comfortable. Nike Air Max 2015 Sale . -- Gus Malzahn finally had his day in Fayetteville. http://www.airmax2016dames.nl/nike-air-max-2016-release-date/air-max-2016-flyknit.html . -- Quarterback Will Finch threw for 252 yards and three touchdowns, and Yannick Harou rushed in two scores as the No. With 130 international wickets under her belt, and an imposing T20 record, Englands recently appointed vice-captain Anya Shrubsole would have been one of the first internationals selected for the Womens Big Bash League in Australia last winter. If, that is, she had chosen to make the trip.She decided against joining the best of the best in the WBBL partly to preserve her body from the rigours of a chaotic schedule, but mostly because her final university dissertation was due (imagine that in the mens game).In her thesis, the psychology student explored the relationship between perfectionism and competitive anxiety; a topic appropriate for an opening bowler, specifically one who self-describes as a little bit of a perfectionist.Shrubsole spoke to ESPNcricinfo during the Kia Super League, where she is representing Western Storm, who feature in Sundays Finals Day at Chelmsford.Part of this drives you to train and it definitely got me where I am today because I want to do everything well as I possibly can, she explains of perfectionism as it relates to her own career. But theres a fine line: if you go too far over the line almost nothing ends up being good enough because no-one is perfect.There is a relaxed self-awareness in this from a bowler once known for her grumpiness. At 24, but with eight years since her England debut, she is at once a veteran and an improving product despite her seniority. But she believes a mellowing has occurred in the process of applying her psychology learnings into her professional output.A couple of bad balls used to get into my head and it would interfere with the next couple and spiral out of control and I think as you play more thats completely detrimental to what you are trying to do, she says.By putting in place processes to control such a spiral, Shrubsole knows she has limited a weakness in her game that batsmen exploited. The influence of new national coach Mark Robinson has been a key part in this development; he has schooled Shrubsole in the art of expectation management.You want to perform the best that you can, but at the same time if your expectations become unrealistic you almost never meet up to them and are always frustrated. Shrubsoles method: an unfaltering routine to separate emotion from application.I just use the stumps as a physical line, she says. I have from the time where I stop my follow through to when I reach the stumps to think about the last ball, but once I cross that stump line and back to my mark it is to the next ball. Its no more complicated than that: making sure Im always thinking about what is coming next not whats just gone.Perhaps the best illustration of Shrubsoles mental strength happened with bat rather than ball. In last years Ashes Test at Canterbury she batted for 68 minutes and 47 balls without scoring. It was excruciating to watch, but symbolic of doing anything to turn around a dire situation.Ill never stop fighting until the game is over, I pride myself on it, she says when recalling the hand. So that innings became enjoyable and almost quite funny. I quite enjoyed it in the end.For all this, its somewhat ironic that a moment when Shrubsole was least in control provoked a career-defining change to her principle craft. At the 2013 World Cup, she was bowling to West Indies in early-morning conditions that swing bowlers dream of: dew still on the grass and moisture in the air. It was swing, not pace, that had got her to this level, yet she just couldnt get the ball to move. She takes up the story:Standing at fine leg I knew I had to get something more out of the perfect conditions, and I didnt look like getting them out she recalls. So I turned the ball around to see what would happen - and it hooped. Then the next ball absolutely hooped. I thought this was going well.It did go well, Shrubsole ending the day with the Player of the Match award, claiming 4 for 21. So she did exactly the same next time up against Australia, this time picking up 3 for 21. Ive forever bowled inswing since that day.A year later, she led all-comers in the World T20, nabbing 13 wickets at 7.53 apiece, earning the player of the tournament gong in the process.Its a pattern thats continued; her bowling average across 47 T20 internationals an altogether ridiculous 12.79. Sure enough, her reasoning for success in the shortest form evokes that familiar theme again: control. Nike Air Max Zero 2015. Im trying to bowl as many balls that I can to hit the stumps, so youre always in the game, Shrubsole says. This was exemplified by the final KSL group game, where she claimed a - wait for it - quadruple-wicket maiden to end the innings, bowling three opposition batsmen in her five-wicket haul.I know it sounds so simple, but it is that simple: hitting the stumps as much as I can, she says, adding a reminder that she only really bowls three balls: a stock inswinger, a slower ball and a yorker. Better to have three perfected than seven not is her theory.Shrubsole will be in Australia this winter for the WBBL for her debut in the competition, and couldnt be happier with Englands equivalent surpassing expectations in season one. But she doesnt subscribe to the idea of the T20 circuit replacing the primacy of international cricket, stating that competitions need to always fit around that.Its on that international stage where Englands women have flourished this summer, Shrubsoles first as deputy to new captain Heather Knight. The times suit her quiet authority - smart but reserved, gifted but not flashy, she fits in tidily to the Robinson regime.This summer was a brilliant illustration of how things have changed within the team since Robbo has been in charge, she says. It was the indication of a good starting point for how we want to play our cricket: full of professionalism, with a new work ethic to training.Shrubsole sees it as a product of Robinsons background as a coach from the mens game that he fundamentally expected more, challenging why they couldnt prepare as physically as the men. I think thats what we really needed, she says. Hes a brilliant coach and knows how to get the most out of people.Was the change in personnel liberating? Absolutely, Shrubsole says. It allowed everyone to have a clean slate and motivation to put best foot forward. The obvious example of this has been opener Tammy Beaumont, who broke the record the runs scored in a three-game ODI series in Englands 3-0 thrashing of Pakistan.She was on the outside; struggling to get into the squad… so for her, he came in with a fresh pair of eyes and everything before had gone; it was a new start. Shrubsole is also ready to step up if Knight is ever absent through injury. Sure enough, shes thought about it plenty, as youd expect from someone exhibiting all the traits of a quintessential cricket badger. When asked to name her favourite bowler she cites Michael Holding, who retired half a decade before she was born. She later speaks about clips shes watched of Brian Close being peppered by the Jamaican in his pomp.As with batting and bowling and fielding, you wouldnt go into a game not having practiced it and have a routine with it, so Im always keen to captain as much as I possibly can.Additional to her obsessive watching of the game, she has routinely captained teams through her career, including representative sides at youth level and her county for the last four seasons. So should that day come, Im happy and know what I am doing.Casting forward a little under a year, a home ODI World Cup rolls around. Shrubsole assesses England will be there and thereabouts in light of recent progress. She believes the collective confidence is steadily building after their faultless summer. We are going to make mistakes, but its a case of having that belief in what we are doing.Its a considerable journey from watching her dad charging in to open the bowling, trying to get the blokes to let her have a bat or a bowl or a kick of the football.Naturally enough, as a swing bowler Shrubsole wishes for more Test cricket; understandable after her performance in that Ashes Test where she decimated the Australian top order on the opening day, claiming the first four wickets.In T20 cricket you get a lot of wickets as a result of the match situation, but in Test match cricket you have to get people out, she says. I take joy in working batters out and setting them up.A quick with a thesis in competitive psychology who also revels in mind games? If opposition players werent daunted by Anya Shrubsoles capacity, they should be. Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
