#1 n, Im finally getting my swagger von mary123 23.10.2019 05:08

Hardik Pandya doesnt do regular. Life, king size seems to be more his thing. He is what they call filmy - read: dramatic. Pandya is a showman; look up his interviews on YouTube to watch him explode into a gazillion expressions in less than a minute. He is image-conscious, finicky about brands, and even shares his birthday with Amitabh Bachchan; you wonder why he isnt in Bollywood.Pandyas love for the limelight also means he loves taking on a challenge. In IPL 2016, he had the chance to be play-maker when Mumbai Indians promoted him to No. 3, but the move didnt quite work out. Both his batting and bowling form took a hit, and he was left out of Indias subsequent limited-overs series against Zimbabwe and West Indies. Up to that point, though, Pandya had featured in each of the 16 T20Is India had played in 2016, picking up 15 wickets at an average of 24. He was then sent to Australia with the India A team, where, statistically, he didnt have a great tour, but the selectors had seen enough to bring him back.A few minutes before the toss in Dharamsala, Pandya was surrounded by his team-mates as he collected his maiden ODI cap from Kapil Dev, incidentally 38 years to the day since Indias finest allrounder had made his Test debut. Pandya was in the spotlight again for about 30 seconds. MS Dhoni decided Pandya could bask in it a while longer when he gave him the new ball.Our thinking was to give him a chance to exploit the new ball. The reason being, we all felt, he is quite deceptive - he can bowl quick and he has got movement, Dhoni said. Even on wickets where some of the other bowlers dont get that kind of swing, he is still somebody who can get some purchase of the wicket.Pandya didnt begin well, though, as Martin Guptill took him for three fours off his first five balls. The numbers werent in his favour again, but two of those three boundaries were off edges, and a fourth delivery only just missed Guptills outside edge. Dhoni made note and installed a third slip before the last delivery of the over. Pandya got the ball to swerve in on a length and straighten to find Guptills edge, which went went to second slip.Pandya took off in celebration, with arms outstretched, but there was none of his usual vein-bursting screams. His only extravagance on the day, in fact, was a pair of sunglasses that appeared to be fashioned after cartoon characters Swat Kats headgear.Pandya maintained good pace, staying between the late 130s and early 140s, and married it with late movement to frequently find the batsmens body: Kane Williamson copped one on the thigh pad, while Tom Latham, who handled Pandya with the most ease, was hit on the box. While Pandya leaked a boundary in each of his first three overs and bled 26 runs - mostly by bowling too full - he made it up by giving away only five more runs in his next four overs.He was particularly effective against the left-hand batsmen, conceding only 18 runs off the 31 balls they faced. Pandya benefited as much from his Test match length as from his new-ball partner Umesh Yadavs accuracy at the other end; together they pinned down the returning Corey Anderson before his attempt to club Pandya was snaffled by a diving Umesh at mid-off.With the first leg of the Pandya experiment having gone well, Dhoni said he wanted to give him a decent run with the new ball. We only have eight games before the Champions Trophy [including the Dharamsala ODI], so we would like to see under different situations and conditions how he reacts and how he quickly he can adapt to the conditions, Dhoni said. Of course, lets say for example, if it is 2-2 and it is the fifth game of the series, then we will obviously try to play the best XI. But, I dont see any reason if he keeps performing the way he did in this game why he cant be our first pick when it comes to the three fast bowlers.Pandya, meanwhile, was back in the limelight when he walked out to collect his Man-of-the-Match award. The characteristic wide grin was in place, but there was no excessive animation, mirroring his manner from the game. It wasnt a bad change to embrace on a comeback. To the new ball then, and new beginnings. Arizona Diamondbacks Store . The next step is a better finish.

Arizona Diamondbacks Gear . LOUIS -- Valtteri Filppula assisted on three of Tampa Bays four goals, and the Lightning beat the St. Arizona Diamondbacks Pro Shop . LUCIE, Fla. Ray Smith could not help but smile at Arizonas media day last month, barely able to contain his excitement for the upcoming season.After tearing the ACL in both knees over the previous two seasons, he had every reason to be amped up.His elation did not make it past the first game and now his career is over.Smiths difficult basketball career took another frustrating turn on Tuesday night when the redshirt freshman had to be helped from the court during the No. 10 Wildcats exhibition game against College of Idaho.On Thursday, Arizona coach Sean Miller announced what everyone had hoped would not be the case: Smith tore his right ACL for the second straight year, along with meniscus damage.The torn ACL was Smiths third in three years, leading him to end his basketball career.I love the game of basketball, but I have decided to step away from the game for good, Smith said. I will still be involved with the team and I will still attend THE University of Arizona.Smith went down early against College of Idaho, setting off a collective groan from the McKale Center crowd. He walked off the court to the locker room and returned to the game.Midway through the second half, he went down again and didnt get up. Smith crumpled from the non-contact injury and immediately gestured for help. He was carried off the court.Arizona said in a statement that Smith will have surgery within a month and begin the rehabilitation process.In the 25 years I have been a college basketball coach, I have never felt as helpless as I did when I saw him go down on Tuesday night, Miller said in a statement.No 19-year-old kid should have to experience three season-ending injuries in a 30-month period of time. I have watched Ray work with our strength and conditioning coach tirelessly for two years. I have seen him inn our training room around the clock, doing everything he can to play the game he loves.dddddddddddd To witness his extraordinary efforts and see this happen to him once again is beyond disheartening.Smith was one of the nations top high school recruits out of Las Vegas, an athletic 6-foot-8 forward who played above the rim and was a versatile defender.He missed his senior season at Las Vegas High School after tearing his left ACL, but was expected to join Allonzo Trier and Justin Simon as the next stars in Tucson last season.Instead, Smith tore his right ACL in practice before the season began.Following a lengthy rehabilitation, Smith returned to the Wildcats this season, ready to get his career back on track.The last two years, I would say, imagine someone who starved for two years, Smith said recently. How much I wanted to compete and watching them compete, that just hurt me and for a while, I just didnt feel like myself. Finally getting a taste of that competition, Im finally getting my swagger back, starting to believe in who I am.Now Smith has to go through it all over again.Miller said last month that he planned to ease Smith back into the fold by limiting his minutes in games, possibly giving him time off at practice. The goal was to give Smith time to regain his strength and confidence.Smith had no trouble running and jumping in practice, but was not able to make it through his first game back.My father once told me that just because someone is a good basketball player doesnt make them a good person. That the sport doesnt define who we are only what we can do, Smith said. Pretty much what Im saying is thank you BASKETBALL youve been GREAT! ' ' '
