Perhaps numbers do never reveal the full story, but they tell a large part of it fairly well. Vapormax Weiß Deutsch . Every Friday, The Numbers Game will take a look at statistics from the present and the past, busting myths and revealing hidden truths.Mythbuster of the week - Sunny not so flash after all? There is little doubt that Sunil Gavaskar would rank among the best openers in the all-time Test list. What is slightly over-rated, though, is his record against West Indies. At first glance, the stats are awe-inspiring: an average in the mid-60s, with an equally impressive record both home and away, and a hundred every two Tests over a span of 27 matches. Dig a little deeper, and a few chinks appear. Gavaskars two best series against the West Indians came when their bowling attack was a far cry from the four-pronged battery of fast bowlers that had been synonymous with their cricket in the 1980s. First, the sensational debut series in 1970-71, which fetched Gavaskar 774 runs from four Tests. The pace-bowling attack consisted of Vanburn Holder (career record - 109 wickets from 40 Tests at 33.27), Grayson Shillingford (15, 7, 35.80), Keith Boyce (60, 21, 30.01), Uton Dowe (12, 4, 44.50), John Shepherd (19, 5 25.21) and Garry Sobers (235, 93, 34.03). Hardly fearsome stuff.Then, when West Indies came with a team weakened by the Kerry Packer exodus, Gavaskar feasted again, with 732 runs in six Tests. The pace bowlers this time were Holder, Norbert Phillip (28, 9, 37.17), Sylvester Clarke (42, 11, 27.85) and a raw Malcolm Marshall, who managed measly returns of three wickets at an exorbitant 88.33 in the Tests. The two series in which Gavaskar did have to confront a four-pronged pace attack, he didnt enjoy quite as much success. The tour of 1982-83 was especially miserable: his only score of note in nine innings was an unbeaten 147 on the fifth day of a Georgetown Test which was meandering towards a draw after rain had washed out two of the first four days. Remove that knock, and his eight remaining innings in that series fetched him a mere 93.The home series in 1983-84 was far more rewarding - his century at Delhi and 90 at Ahmedabad were memorable innings - but almost half his total runs in the series came from one innings, an unbeaten 236 in the last Test, at Chennai, in another rain-affected match after West Indies had already sealed the series in emphatic style. Michael Holding, in his autobiography Whispering Death, suggests that Gavaskar was a fair-weather batsman - impenetrable in good batting conditions, but not quite as impressive when the going got tough. Does he have a point there?* * * * * *The new Michael Bevan Its probably sacrilegious to even mention them in the same breath, but theres an uncanny similarity between Michael Clarkes performances in his short international career so far, and Michael Bevans record at the same stage of his career. In their debut ODIs, both made unbeaten 39s, anchoring their teams to wins in run-chases. Bevans ODI stats have been dominated by a significant number of not-outs, and Clarke seems to be going the same way too: three unbeaten innings out of seven, exactly as many as Bevan had at the same stage. Bevans first half-century only came in his tenth ODI, though; Clarke already has two in seven. His average will surely come down from its current lofty perch of 70.25, but, if his early matches are anything to go by, Australia have probably found a key member of their batting line-up for a long time to come. * * * * * *Unchanged in defeat and ... defeat The recently concluded two-Test series against England resulted in just the second instance of Bangladesh fielding an unchanged team in two consecutive Tests. The only other occasion it happened was in their two-match series in New Zealand in 2001-02, both of which they lost by an innings. The 11 players who represented them were: Javed Omar, Al Sahariar, Habibul Bashar, Aminul Islam, Mohammad Ashraful, Sanwar Hossain, Khaled Mashud (capt & wk), Khaled Mahmud, Mohammad Sharif, Mashrafe Mortaza, Manjural Islam.Five of those players - Omar, Bashar, Mashud, Mahmud and Mortaza - played in both Tests against England as well.S Rajesh is assistant editor of Wisden Cricinfo. Nike Vapormax Fake Kaufen . -- When the Florida Panthers fell behind by two goals in the first period to the top team in the NHL, it appeared they were on their way to yet another loss. Nike Vapormax Plus Bestellen . PETERSBURG, Fla. . The parade and rally were held to celebrate the Saskatchewan Roughriders 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday in the CFLs championship game. Zipping Classic An intriguing renewal of this event, with five members of the Melbourne Cup beaten brigade and the Victoria Derby fourth, So Si Bon, the leading contenders. The key to this race is the fact it is run at weight-for-age. Proven form under such conditions is important, and the two with runs on the board are Who Shot Thebarman and Big Orange.Who Shot Thebarman was very good when a running-on fifth in the Cup; he ran equally well last year behind Prince Of Penzance before spacing his rivals in the Zipping Classic under an enterprising James McDonald ride. The field is tougher this time but Chris Wallers stayer is treading a known path to success.Big Orange will relish the step away from handicaps, meeting his Flemington rivals anywhere between 1kg and 5kg better off. He was plain in the big one, but he couldnt lead that day and is a live chance here if able to find his rhythm in front.Its interesting that Almoonqith contests this race and not the two-mile Sandown Cup, a race he won in 2015 and one he would go close to winning again had connections gone that way this year. He ran very well in both the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups and is a winning hope.The two Godolphin raiders, Beautiful Romance and Secret Number, have something to find on Flemington running, while So Si Bon was good in the Derby but that form hasnt been tested yet and three-year-olds havent done much this spring when tested in open company.Recommend Bet: Big Orange to win @ $5 with UBET, but play multiples with Who Shot Thebarman and Almoonqith.Sandown Guineas The Carbine Club on Derby day is usually the right form reference for this Group 2 race over 1600m, so its surprising that just one galloper to contest that race reappears at Sandown on Saturday. It looked to be a hot contest, and the runner-up at Flemington, Mortons Fork, can prove it was just that in a Sandown Guineas lacking in depth.?Mortons Fork was just touched off in the Carbine Club by Criterions half-brother Comin Through, who could well be one direct from the top drawer. ?Godolphin has a great record in the Sandown Guineas, having won it four times in the past eight years, and Mortons Fork is just the type to make it number five.?Standing in his way is the filly Jennifer Lynn, whose winning streak of three started in a Benchmark 64 at Coleraine before progressing to Listed company on Melbourne Cup day. She has something to find with the favourite, but is lightly raced and in-form Darren Weir runners must always be respected.Recommended Bet: Mortons Fork to win @ $2 with UBET, but go to town on an insurance quinella with Jennifer Lynn.Best Bet Sandown Race 6, No.1 Mortons Fork @ $2 with UBET For reasons stated above. Has been heavily backed, so the value looks to be gone, but hes been supported for a reason.Next Best Sandown Race 3, No.1 Qewy @ $2.20 with UBETHow Qewy isnt odds-on ranks alongside the Bermuda Triangle and Donald Trump becoming US President as one of lifes great mysteries. The Godolphin raider has been excellent since arriving in Australia, winning the Geelong Cup before running a game fourth in the Melbourne Cup. At Goodwood prior to coming ovver he finished well in front of Francis Of Assisi, last weeks 10-length winner of the Queen Elizabeth Stakes. Vapormax Weiß Damen. The Sandown Cup is a pretty poor race this year -- most, if not all, of Qewys rivals are either out of form or wont stay two miles, or both. Get on now. Will start odds-on. Will win.Next, Next Best Sandown Race 2, No.4 Redkirk Warrior @ $2.40 with UBET Zipping Classic day always comprises horses who have been up a while, so freshness in the legs is often a key to success. Former Hong Kong galloper Redkirk Warrior contests the second race with just one run this prep under his belt, an eye-catching second to Sir Bacchus three weeks ago at Moonee Valley. Boasted some very handy form in Hong Kong last year, and, if his first run in a year wasnt too taxing, he should be winning this under 54kg. There are question marks over the two Darren Weir runners at the top of the weights, so couple Redkirk Warrior with his stablemate, Sovereign Nation, if youre keen on exotics.Over the Odds Sandown Race 4, No.3 Husson Eagle @ $7 with UBETGet the feeling this one has been laid out by trainer Patrick Payne for a first-up crack at this 1000m scamper. Husson Eagle has won two from four resuming from a spell and looks pretty well treated just 2kg above the minimum for a galloper who has beaten Group 1-placed Wild Rain at level weights. Should get a nice run in transit from gate five and could prove too strong down the roomy Sandown straight. Looks a really nice each-way bet.Under the Odds Sandown Race 8, No.4 Illustrious Lad @ $4.40 with UBETIs in very good form, and seemingly went to a new level down the Flemington straight last time, but the Kevin Heffernan Stakes is a new challenge altogether. Illustrious Lad takes on Group 1 winners Lucky Hussler and Under The Louvre, both of whom plummet in class here, at weight-for-age, and has drawn the outside marble in a field of 11. The chances dont end with the top two, either.Illustrious Lad is going the right way, no doubt, but he looks too short in an event that will test him like he hasnt been tested before.Lay of the Day Sandown Race 7, No.8 So Si Bon @ $4.20 with UBETAll spring punters have been sucked in by three-year-olds off low weights, and they have learned at a cost that carrying a postage stamp isnt a rite of passage to success. So Si Bon has 50.5kg in the Zipping Classic because thats what the weight-for-age scale decrees spring three-year-olds should carry; the colt hasnt beaten the handicapper. At any rate, we dont yet know the merit of the Derby form, which the son of So You Think represents via his fourth placing. Although So Si Bon is good, hed need to be verging on exceptional to beat these seasoned stayers. And Im not sure he is.Multi of the Weekend Sandown Race 2, No.4 Redkirk Warrior - PLACE @ $1.47Sandown Race 3, No.1 Qewy - WIN @ $2.20Sandown Race 4, No.3 Husson Eagle - PLACE @ $2.50Sandown Race 6, No.1 Mortons Fork - WIN @ $2Sandown Race 8, No.1 Lucky Hussler - PLACE @ $1.83Multi price: $29.59 with UBET ' ' '
