s was miffed after winning her gold medal in London

Zimbabwe beat Hong Kong by 14 runs in the opening game of the ICC 2016 World T20 in Nagpur. Akeem Dent Jersey . Viru Sibanda (59 off 46 balls) hit a maiden T20I half century for Zimbabwe, helping them to 158-8 from their 20 overs.Sibanda put on 61 for the fifth wicket with Malcolm Waller (26) after Zimbabwe struggled at the start, losing four wickets inside eight overs.However, both were dismissed inside four balls in the 17th over as Zimbabwe again lost a cluster of quick wickets before a crucial unbeaten 30 off 13 balls from Elton Chigumbura - including three sixes - helped them to a winning score.Jamie Atkinson (53 off 44) hit fifty for Hong Kong, but with the required run-rate creeping above 13-an-over, he fell in the 17th over.Tanwir Azfal (31no off 17) briefly threatened to take the game to the wire, striking three fours and a six, and Zimbabwe will have been particularly worried when Chigumbura dropped the Hong Kong captain on 17.With 30 needed from the final two overs, Tendai Chatara (2-28) took two wickets in two balls to find himself on a hat-trick. He could not take it, but Zimbabwe would close the game out for the win.After Hong Kong won the toss and chose to field, they benefited from some dozy running by Hamilton Masakadza (20 off 13), the Zimbabwe skipper was run out with his bat not grounded and his foot off the floor when a direct hit clattered into the stumps. Sibanda acknowledges the crowd after reaching his half-century The impressive Tanwir (2-19) then removed Richmond Mutumbami - for a duck - and Sean Williams (12) as Zimbabwe stumbled to 62-4.The scoring rate was still high thanks to Sibandas efforts at the other end, and he rebuilt with Waller, notching a vital fifty-partnership.Aizaz Khan (2-33) removed both in the same over and another run out meant Zimbabwe had lost three wickets for four runs and were suddenly struggling to set a decent score, before Chigumburas fireworks from the final two overs.Hong Kong made a slow start to their reply, hitting only five boundaries and one six in the first 10 overs, scoring 48 and losing Ryan Campbell and Babar Hayat, both for nine.Atkinson received some useful support from Mark Chapman (19 off 17) and Anshuman Rath (13 off 8), but perished soon after reaching his fifty, and Hong Kongs hopes of an unlikely win disappeared with him, despite Tanwirs best efforts.Sky Sports is the only place you can watch all 35 games in 27 days of the 2016 ICC World T20. Or watch from £6.99 without a contract, on NOW TV. Alfred Blue Jersey . Patrice Bergeron and Daniel Paille scored 20 seconds apart a few minutes after Stamkos was taken off the ice on a stretcher with a broken right leg, and the Bruins beat the Lightning 3-0 on Monday afternoon. Official Houston Texans Jersey .ca! Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. .C. at the helm of the top team in the Eastern Conference. His tenure as the GM in Vancouver was all too brief. Though he led the Canucks to what was then a franchise record-shattering campaign in just his second season, Nonis was gone and replaced one year later. LAS VEGAS -- She became the first American woman boxer to win a gold medal in the London Olympics, then did it again a few months ago in Rio.Nice trinkets, but Claressa Shields has bigger things in mind. Way bigger.A one-in-a-century fighter, Shields said.The brash middleweight from Flint, Michigan, makes her pro debut Saturday night on the undercard of the Andre Ward-Sergey Kovalev light heavyweight title clash. Shell do it without headgear but with the same two-minute rounds as in the amateurs.And she will do it against a familiar opponent in Baltimore boxer Franchon Crews, a top amateur she beat on her way to earning a spot on the 2012 Olympic team.Very seldom do you see someone making their pro debut with this level of fight, said Mark Taffet, who is Shields co-manager. The idea is to use the first year and make it impactful in a way that hasnt been done for a female fighter.Theres no shortage of big plans for Shields, and seemingly no lack of confidence that the 21-year-old can succeed where other women boxers havent. But theres also no guarantee Shields can be a breakout fighter who can bring the kind of interest to the fractured world of womens boxing that Ronda Rousey has to the UFC.It may be a longshot, but thats not stopping Shields from envisioning womens boxing having a different future. She believes she can someday headline pay-per-view cards of her own like Ward-Kovalev at the glittering new T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas Strip.I consider myself a pay-per-view attraction now, Shields said. The more you see me box, the more youll like me. I want to fight 12 rounds. If a girl could withstand me for 12 rounds, that would be a good fight.Shields will make her debut in a four-rounder that wont be on the pay-per-view portion of the card. Taffett said her bout, expected to take place with few people in the arena, will be streamed online and put on specialty channels in an effort to get people to buy the Kovalev-Ward card. Will Fuller Jersey. Crews also will make her pro debut in the fight. She is an eight-time USA Boxing national champion and a silver medalist at the 2012 world championships.Shields, whose story of rising out of poverty with her fists was the subject of a documentary film after her first gold medal win, said she wants to fight 10 times in the next year to build her resume and get more people interested in her.I believe 150 percent in my boxing ability, she said. I know Im a great fighter. I fight better than 90 percent of the men who box now. I just know that, and Im not at my best yet.Shields was miffed after winning her gold medal in London that she didnt receive the kind of endorsements and attention given gymnast Gabby Douglas. Things were a bit better in Rio, where she became the first American boxer to defend an Olympic title and won the Val Barker Trophy as the tournaments top overall fighter.Instead of continuing to draw a $5,000 monthly stipend from USA Boxing to go for a third gold in Tokyo four years from now, though, she decided to turn pro. Despite womens boxing receiving little attention in recent years and her bout not on pay-per-view, Shields isnt deterred.Taffet, who used to be head of pay-per-view for HBO, said he signed on to help manage her because he is a big believer.Shes going to make her mark not just on womens boxing, but all of boxing like the way weve seen recently in MMA, he said. Its a new world, and theres a new sheriff in town.
