a-Jersey/ . - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is not a fan of his teams use of the wildcat formation

Swashbuckling batsman, aggressive captain, and all-round good bloke… Nasser Hussain discusses the outgoing - in more ways than one - New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum. . Its a cliché to talk about cricketers being in the entertainment business but thats exactly what McCullum was in.He was never there to plod along and get a score for himself - he was the original see ball, hit ball guy who was there to show you what he could do.That came from his immense ability, though - it wasnt a case of Brendon waking up one morning and thinking Im going to transform the game, he knew he had the skill to back it up.Dont forget this is a man with a Test triple hundred, three more double hundreds, and 200 sixes in one-day international cricket!His fast hands and fast feet have been incredible to watch, with some of his knocks - particularly the 77 from 25 balls he scored against England in the World Cup, when the opposition didnt know what had hit them - have been incredible. McCullum marmalised England at the 2015 World Cup It can be easy as a player and a captain to be consumed by the game but if you worry about getting out and play fearful cricket, you never express yourself.McCullum never had that problem and always played fearless cricket, probably because its in his nature to be a bit of a gambler, a bit of a risk taker.Proof of that was that he often used up DRS reviews in the first over!If Brendon batted for an hour-and-a-half he could change the game - but he definitely changed the game as a captain in the modern era. Nasser says the Kiwi was a galvanising captain He worked out that in order to win matches you had to take wickets and have catchers in place - in the 2015 World Cup he pretty much adopted Test-match fields.You have to have the attack to deploy those fields - theres no point setting three slips and gully if your bowler is bowling leg-stump half volleys - and he had that in Trent Boult and Tim Southee.Players responded to him, though, and bought into his ideas - I guess it was hard not to if he was attacking all the time and telling you do the same. McCullums final ODI series ended with a win over Australia The other thing to mention is that he is a really nice guy.I know that doesnt really matter in the world of professional sport but he is, and I think it is a real shame that we are losing someone like him at the peak of his powers.At 34, going on 35, he could still have a good few more years left in international cricket and thats something the ICC and these T20 franchises around the world need to think about.How will you remember McCullum?

Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the leagues most productive bench, and Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night after blowing a 27-point lead. . - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is not a fan of his teams use of the wildcat formation, saying "it makes you look like a high school offence. . -- Claudio Bieler hadnt scored since early September, and not from the run of play since mid-July. The Patriots dont plan on spending much time discussing Aaron Hernandez and neither do we in this preview. If there is one club built to handle an off-field controversy, its the Bill Belichick era Patriots. Even if New Englands offence stumbles a bit out of the gate, their defence can help them stay in games, especially in the AAFC East with the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets in the first two weeks. . The club still still has one of the best coaches in the game and there is no reason to think they wont make the playoffs once again.
