Nick Compton needs to adopt a more positive approach to his batting going forward if Englands No 3 wants to save his Test career, according to Sky Sports pundit Michael Holding. Black Air Jordan 1 Retro . The Middlesex batsman made just nine runs from 34 balls on day one of the second Test against Sri Lanka at the Emirates Riverside as the home side closed on 310-6.However, after also failing in Englands comprehensive first Test win at Headingley last week when making a three-ball duck, the pressure is now very much on Comptons shoulders going into his second innings in Durham. Holding, however, thinks Compton should be more aggressive the next time he walks to the wicket, with the former West Indies paceman using compatriot Lawrence Rowes past difficulties for his country as an example of how to hit your way into form. Weve picked out Joe Root as our player of the day after his 80 helped England reached 310-6 after the first day of the second Test People have been saying that maybe he needs to change the way he bats, Holding told Sky Sports. There are two viewpoints.I remember years ago when Lawrence Rowe was having struggles in the Caribbean and he was not getting any runs. He went out there against England blazing one afternoon and got something like 47 or 48 in quick time. And then he came back and got a triple century.Greg Chappell went through a similar situation in Australia in the Eighties and they asked Greg, when he did eventually get some runs, if he ever thought about going out and throwing his bat.And he said: No, that is not the way I have ever batted. I just decided to keep on batting the way I know how to bat and eventually the runs will come. Milinda Siriwardana was pleased with his performance after he picked up two wickets on day one of the second Test against England Well Compton may need to start thinking a little more positively about his stroke play, because he goes out there in this defensive mode. And I think he is putting a lot of pressure on himself by being in that defensive mode.He needs to loosen up a bit. Do not go out and throw the bat, but loosen up a bit.Mahela Jayawardena, meanwhile, agrees with his fellow Sky Sports pundit and the one-time Sri Lanka captain believes Compton is placing himself under too much pressure when going out to bat.You felt that he was on a mission after he got out in the first Test match caught behind, he said of the right-hander who has been out for scores of 15, 26, 0, 19, 6, 0 and 9 in his last seven Test innings. England opener Alex Hales told David Lloyd he thinks England had the better day after England posted 310-6 So his focus was on trying to get forward and making sure that he controls that.And you could see his intent of playing forward all the time. Then all of a sudden the short ball came out of nowhere because he was not prepared.You need to be going with the flow, rather than putting yourself under pressure, by batting with a plan.It probably was a planned thing from the Sri Lankans, but he was not ready for that short ball and he took it on. Alex Hales (left) chats to Nick Compton on the opening day of the second Test in Durham So he just needs to clear his mind and bat the way he bats naturally and be more positive.One England player who is not struggling for runs so far this summer is opener Alex Hales, who made an impressive 83 on day one at the Riverside, his second score in the eighties after falling 14 runs short of a century in Leeds last week. He is showing why the selectors showed faith in him. They knew what he could produce and he has shown he could adapt Michael Holding on Alex Hales However, Jayawardena feels the Nottinghamshire batsman must now take the next step up by recording that elusive maiden Test ton in order to make him feel like he belongs at the highest level of the game.He needs to get that hundred, as once you get that, you feel you belong in Test cricket, he said.He has found a way to control his innings and tempo, but once he gets those big runs under his belt, then he can start to control his innings better. The longer he spends time there, he will find a way to control his tempo better.Jayawardena, though, has urged Hales to carry on playing his natural game, despite the Englishman once again getting dismissed playing an attacking shot against a spinner, as he also did at Headingley. Watch a pick of the action from the first day of the second Test between England and Sri Lanka Either way, Holding thinks Hales is demonstrating just why England coach Trevor Bayliss picked him for the tour of South Africa and then kept faith with the opener after his lean time with the bat during the winter.When he didnt do that well in South Africa a lot of people, including myself, were saying he doesnt really look like he is going to make it at Test level. England knew exactly what he could produce - and he is now producing.When he came into the side people spoke about his possibly being a dasher, but he hasnt batted that way in Test cricket as he realises it isnt going to work. He dug in at Leeds when wickets were tumbling around him.And now he is showing why the selectors showed faith in him. They knew what he could produce and so its good to see he can adapt.

He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo. Week 1 of the NFL season was packed with intriguing calls: Jack Del Rio shedding his conservative label and making the Raiders both risky and relevant again.And non-calls: the Broncos hits on Cam Newtons noggin that led to plenty of finger pointing but nobody checking him for a concussion during the game.Of the costly on-field choices, one stood out: Dallas receiver Terrance Williams decision to turn upfield rather than veer for the sideline to give his kicker a chance at a last-second field goal with the Cowboys trailing the Giants 20-19.He obviously just needs to get out of bounds in that situation and give us a chance, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. It was a poor decision on his part. We talked to him about that. He understands that. His instincts took over and took him inside instead of to the sidelines, and well all learn from that situation.Coaches are wise to go with the bold moves when theyre in the same division Denver has dominated ever since Tim Tebow was trying to hit his tight ends and receivers rather than curveballs and the cutoff man.So, three days after watching Denvers defense pummel Newton anew , Del Rio and Andy Reid made strong statements of their own.Del Rio wanted nothing to do with overtime in Oaklands shootout at New Orleans, so he told his offense theyd go for the 2-point conversion when they began their final drive and he stuck to his word. Derek Carr rewarded Del Rios gamble with a toss to Michael Crabtree for a last-minute 35-34 win.I was thinking, `Were here to win. Lets win it right now, Del Rio said.Reid and his QB, Alex Smith, never flinched when his Kansas City Chiefs fell behind San Diego 24-3 and found themselves trailing by 17 points in the fourth quarter. They stuck to their game plan and were rewarded with a 33-27 overtime victory.They got help from Chargers coach Mike McCoys curious call.The Chargers led 27-10 with 11:20 left in the fourth quarter when McCoy decided to try a 54-yard field goal -- odd, considering it would be a three-score game either way. Instead of running his best play on fourth-and-2 or trying to pin the Chiefs deep, McCoy sent in Josh Lambo, who missed. The Chiefs got the ball at the 44 and promptly began their comeback.McCoy said special teams coach Craig Aukerman told him Lambo was crushing it before the game: He was dead-on. I asked Craig about it and he said, `Yeah, hes going to put it right down the middle. He had all the confidence in the world. So I had all the confidence in the world, too.Things quickly fell apart for the hard-luck Chargers.That was a turning point, McCoy said.Their AFC Westt rivals are eager to show theyve narrowed the gap with the Broncos, who are bracing for those hefty fines this week after four helmet-to-helmet hits on Newton. Air Jordan 1 Retro 2018. HEAD GAMES : None of the high hits on the leagues reigning MVP resulted in penalty yardage, and the one that was flagged was negated by an intentional grounding call. That prompted Panthers coach Ron Rivera to complain about officials not protecting his QB. But Rivera didnt do all he could to help Newton, either. He called 11 runs for Newton, who was hit 17 times, and he never took his QB out of the game, even in the final minute after a hit by safety Darian Stewart left Newton motionless on the ground. The players union has asked why Newton didnt undergo a cognitive exam on the sideline during the game. The NFL is reviewing how the Panthers medical team handled the pinballed QB.FINAL FOUR: Opening weekend pitted the Super Bowl participants and the conference runners-up. Denvers 21-20 win over Carolina in Trevor Siemians first start, and New Englands 23-21 win over Arizona in Jimmy Garoppolos first start came down to missed field goals in the closing seconds. Graham Gano took the blame for pushing his 50-yarder wide left in Carolinas crushing loss. Chandler Catanzaro said his 47-yard miss against the Patriots was on him. But it was really Kameron Canadays low snap that was to blame. The rookie long snapper won the job late in the preseason to replace the reliable Mike Leach, who retired.QB QUANDARY : The Vikings had only seven days to prepare Sam Bradford, so coach Mike Zimmer went with the safe pick and started 15-year veteran Shaun Hill at Tennessee. Hills arm strength is limited and the Titans wisely crowded the line to hold Adrian Peterson to 31 yards on 19 rushes. But Hill delivered plenty of precise throws to the middle of the field and he didnt turn the ball over. The Vikings used three takeaways to fuel a 25-16 victory.NBC commentator Tony Dungy said the Vikings have to start Bradford against Green Bay in Week 2. When colleague Rodney Harrison asked why hed think Bradford is ready, Dungy replied: They traded a No. 1 draft choice for him because they knew they needed him.---AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Pro Football Writer Dave Campbell and AP Sports Writers Dave Skretta and Schuyler Dixon contributed.
