Scott Borthwick hopes a winter in New Zealand will prove beneficial as he looks forward to the start of Durhams season. Air Max 95 2018 . Borthwick, who came through the ranks predominately as a leg-spinner, was Durhams batting star in 2015 when he piled up 1,286 runs in 16 matches at a healthy average of 42.87.But the 25-year-old is keen to improve his bowling, which led to an England Test call-up at the end of the Ashes series in Australia in early 2014, and hopes changes in playing conditions this season will be a benefit to him, as well as other slow bowlers. It was fantastic to have a full winter in New Zealand, playing for Wellington, Borthwick told Sky Sports News HQ ahead of Sundays Division One opener at home to Somerset.The idea was to go over and work with Jeetan Patel, which was fantastic as he is a top bowler, but I managed to get into their four-day team and it was fantastic to get some runs and a few wickets as well.Ever since I have come into the Durham side weve been successful. Im not saying thats my fault but the last few years weve won three titles, and thats been fantastic. Hopefully that can continue this season.Midway through 2013 I got the chance to bat at No 3. It was always my goal to move up but maybe from eight to three was a bigger step than I wanted. But Ive really enjoyed it and its nice to be in the team as a batter as well as a bowler. Borthwick wants to improve on his 15 first-class wickets from 2015 Among the changes in the County Championship this summer is the scrapping of the mandatory coin toss, designed to encourage the curation of better pitches.And Borthwick hopes the move, which will see visiting captains offered the chance to bowl first, will be advantageous to spin bowlers after he only bowled 149.1 overs in 2015, taking 15 wickets.He added: This time of the season its quite tough, with your fingers feeling a bit chilly. Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali bowled well in the World Twenty20, so hopefully its promising - theres quite a few spinners around now so hopefully we can take a few wickets.Later on in the summer when teams are batting first, hopefully well get some dry wickets and I can come into my own at the end of games, bowling some 20 or 30 over spells I am not very used to here. If we do tend to bat first here then I might have a chance to bowl in the second innings. Ben Stokes was inconsolable after Englands World Twenty20 final defeat Borthwick will be back playing alongside Ben Stokes when the all-rounder makes his domestic return - expected to be against Middlesex on April 24 - and he is backing his team-mate to recover from a heartbreaking finish to the World Twenty20 in India.Stokes was left in tears after giving up four successive sixes to Carlos Brathwaite in Englands six-wicket defeat against the West Indies in Sundays final.Obviously he was massively down the other night, but knowing Ben, his character and his mental skills, hell bounce back from that, he said.I dont think it will bother Stokesy too much. Hes a fantastic cricketer and hell be itching to get back playing for us, and England as well. Hell want to put that behind him, and hes definitely got the character and skills to do it.

Peter Gammons, an analyst for Major League Baseballs network and website, drew the ire of hockey fans on Sunday when he criticized the two NHL teams on Twitter for their physical game the night before. . LOUIS -- Roman Polak was celebrating even before Alexander Steen scored the winning goal in Saturdays 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. tStrange as it sounds in the age of Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel, there was a time when South Africa didnt produce fast bowlers. There were spinners - and bosie bowlers, who graduated from matting wickets - and what Rod Marsh might have called pie chuckers, but quick men were as rare as winter flowers in the veld.So when Lindsay Tuckett, who died on Monday in Bloemfontein aged 97, came on the scene, great hope followed in his wake. He caught the eye before the Second World War while still a schoolboy at St Andrews College in Bloem, with his strong physique, efficient run-up and easy action, but it wasnt until the 1947 South Africa tour of England that he became someone little boys would seek out for an autograph.He only took 2 for 51 in the traditional tour opener in Worcester but took nine wickets (5 for 27, and 4 for 32) against Leicestershire before being rested against Cambridge University. Big hauls followed against Surrey and Glamorgan as the English press corps, ever eager for a story, began to peck out approving notices on their typewriters.His finest moments came early. He was one of seven South African debuts in the Test opener at Trent Bridge, taking 5 for 68 in 37 overs of toil as England responded to the visitors 533. He only managed a single peg in Englands follow-on innings, but as Drew Forrest recounts in his painstakingly researched book on South African fast bowlers, The Pacemen, it might have been rather different. Fielding in the slips, Bruce Mitchell dropped Norman Yardley off Tucketts bowling at a crucial juncture in the England second innings - doing so unaccountably, according to Wisden. Tuckett always maintained that Mitchell was distracted by his wife entering the ground and wasnt concentrating. The match was drawn.As he had done in the first innings in Nottingham, Tuckett accounted for Denis Compton at Lords in taking 5 for 115 as England won by ten wickets. By now a pattern had emerged. Tuckett bowled 84 overs at Trent Bridge and 50 at Lords. All in all he bowled 252 overs in the five Tests, becoming progressively more and more blunted the deeper the season eased into an exceptionally hot summer.He ended up using a knee brace around his niggly groin, recounts Forrest, and although Tuckett took four England wickets in the third Test, in Manchester, he went wicketless at LLeeds and The Oval. Cheap Air Max 95 Mens. In all, he bowled 724 overs on tour, his captain, Alan Melville, literally bowling him into the ground.In a sense, Tuckett was doubly unlucky. Not only did he have to spearhead the South Africans bowling vanguard with little support, he also lost the best years of his cricketing life to the war, turning 28 on the mail ship journey to Southampton ahead of the 47 tour. He was a taciturn man, not given to self-promotion or sentimentality, and he didnt discuss his war years with anyone, describing them as five years of my life best forgotten.The war darkened many a life among those in the 47 team. Tufty Mann, the spinner, survived only because he lived in a pigsty with a false wall. He was befriended by a family of Italian peasants in the land north of Venice and lived for years in a state of feral high alert. He had lost so much weight hiding from German patrols that his sweetheart didnt recognise him when he was finally shipped home. For years afterwards she would find apples secreted underneath pillows and half-eaten sandwiches under the bed.The 1947 tourists were issued with ration cards when they arrived in England. With slightly neurotic attention to detail, the South African newspaperman Louis Duffus, recorded that red meat and butter were so scarce that he ate no fewer than 131 kippers while on tour. Athol Rowan, the offspinner with big hands, frequently used to eat second dinners after dining at the team hotel. Ossie Dawson, another team-mate, mentioned the post-war scarcity of soap.Tuckett played in four Tests in the 1948-49 home series against England, but there is an argument to be made for the fact that he was crippled by the 1947 tour. Despite also being overshadowed by the rise of Cuan McCarthy, Tuckett ended up bowling the final - infamous - over of the fifth Test, in Port Elizabeth, with John Arlott in the commentary box reporting: …and heaven knows who dare bowl it [the last over]. Lindsay Tuckett looks to me like a man who doesnt want to.In the event, he conceded six runs in the over, as England won via a leg-bye off the last ball. Tuckett believed his captain, Dudley Nourse, never forgave him. And so died his Test career. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
