rall Indias dominance in the first session, Englands comeback in the second and Indias fightback in the final session made this Antworten

Choice of game I was visiting India for a month-long break and had timed my vacation such that I could attend the Mumbai Test. Wankhede Test are generally quite entertaining as the pitch offers something for everyone and the game moves quite fast. England had won their previous two Tests here and India was on the verge on another series win. All this offered a tempting prospect to watch the game.Team supported Being an Indian, I was supporting India but all I wanted to see was a contest between bat and ball and a hard-fought day of Test cricket. And both the teams didnt disappoint.Things I would have changedThere are two things in particular that I would have changed. First being the heat. Despite being December, temperatures in Mumbai are still well in the late 20s and as the day went on, the sun was beating straight down at the Sunil Gavaskar stand making it very uncomfortable. The seats in the stadium are not the most comfortable either and that added to the uneasiness.But more importantly, I would have changed the way Alastair Cook used Adil Rashid in the first session. After removing Cheteshwar Pujara early, England had a great chance to attack with the legspinner when both M Vijay and Virat Kohli were looking to settle in. Instead, Moeen Ali bowled a fairly ordinary 10-over spell allowing them to get set for the long haul. By the time Rashid was brought in, Vijay had reached his ton and Kohli was beginning to dominate the bowling. He got just five overs in the first session and the tactics were baffling.Key performer India had lost Pujara off the second ball of the day while still trailing by 254 runs. They ended the day with a lead of 51. Between the third ball of the day and stumps, Virat Kohli had stitched together yet another mature century proving again how he has lifted his long-form game. It was a near chanceless knock filled with sparkling strokes and astute defense defying the English bowlers throughout the day. He was also the crowd favourite and had been welcomed with loud cheers which only increased as his innings progressed.Wow Moment This has to be the moment Virat got to his ton. The crowd had come to watch him bat and he didnt disappoint. There were deafening cheers as he moved swiftly through the 90s and chants of Vi-raat-Virat filled the stadium. Virat got a well-deserved standing ovation after reaching his hundred and it felt like we had got our moneys worth.Face-off I relished Rashid vs the Indian middle order. After picking Vijay, Rashid had begun to trouble the Indian middle order with his leg spin. Every now and again, he would get one to grip the surface and beat the outside edge or the googly would miss the inside edge to strike the pad. He may not have got the wickets to show for his effort, but he kept a lid on the scoring which brought wickets from the other end. The afternoon session saw some gripping cricket between Rashid and Kohli and while Kohli emerged the winner, Rashid could have easily run through India on another day.Shot of the day There were a few contenders for this. Virats slap pull off Stokes in the 69th over which also took him to 1000 test runs in 2016, Vijays lofted drive over Andersons head in the 77th over and Virats rasping off drive in the 131st over. But one shot that stood out was the boundary Virat hit just after reaching his ton in the 121st over. Jake Ball bowled a full wide delivery which Kohli dispatched with a classy square drive. What made the shot great was his hand-eye coordination which accounted for the lack of footwork. The ball sped across the turf in no time and beat the man sweeping on the off-side boundary. It was also a statement of what was to come.Crowd meter The crowd at the Wankhede was energetic throughout the day. The day started with a few pairs of Punjabi drummers in North, Sunil Gavaskar and Sachin Tendulkar stands playing the drums which made the crowd dance. There was never a dull moment as the crowd cheered every single run with the loud vuvuzela. If there was a lull in the game, Mexican waves were performed to keep everyone on their feet. One of the waves lasted seven rounds and it was wonderful to watch and be a part of.No Wankhede Test goes without chants of Sachin-Sachin and this one had its share too. The crowd also showed their admiration for Mumbai Indians player Jos Buttler as he was fielding at the fence by applauding and cheering him on. All-in-all the crowd made it a great experience just as much as the cricket did.Overall Indias dominance in the first session, Englands comeback in the second and Indias fightback in the final session made this an intriguing day of Test cricket. Virat and Vijays tons and the celebrations in the crowd at every milestone made it a highly enjoyable day, one which I will remember very fondly. The chants of Virat-Virat are here to stay for a very long time.Marks out of 10 8.5 .com) - Yankee Stadium is the home of the Bronx Bombers, but on Sunday afternoon it will open its gates to host the latest addition of the Hudson River Rivalry.

ATLANTA -- Jameis Winston is no longer a rookie.He wasnt about to get flustered when an early mix-up led to an interception.Bouncing back from that mistake, Winston threw four touchdown passes for the second time in his young career as Tampa Bay claimed a winning record for the first time since 2012 by opening the season with a 31-24 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.Winston began his second year as a pro by going 23 of 33 for 281 yards, using just about every weapon at his disposal in the matchup between NFC South rivals. He hooked up with receiver Mike Evans, running back Charles Sims III and tight ends Austin Sefarian-Jenkins and Brandon Myers on scoring plays.Im just growing as a man every day, Winston said.The Falcons grabbed a 10-3 lead late in the first quarter after Winstons pass for Vincent Jackson was picked off by Desmond Trufant, who returned it 13 yards to the Tampa Bay 9. There was a breakdown between the quarterback and receiver, as Jackson broke outside while Winstons threw to the inside.But Winston shook off that miscue with a 4-yard TD pass to Myers and went to work again with less than 2 minutes to go in the first half.Winston converted on third-and-10 with an 11-yard pass to Jackson. Then came a short throw to Sims, who did the rest. He faked out two defenders -- cutting right while they both tumbled the turf, taking each other out -- and broke two more tackles on the way to a 23-yard touchdown that put Tampa Bay ahead for good with 14 seconds left in the half.The Buccaneers scored on their first two possessions of the second half, pushing the lead to 31-13. Winston connected with Sefarion-Jenkins on a 30-yard touchdown, followed by a perfectly thrown 45-yard scoring pass to Evans over two defenders.To their credit, the Falcons didnt quit in their final season opener at the Georgia Dome before moving next door to $1.4 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium.Matt Ryan , looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2015 season in which the Falcons missed the playoffs for the third year in a row, hooked up with Julio Jones on a 25-yard touchdown. A two-point conversion closed the gap to 31-21.Another long drive resulted in Matt Bryants third field goal, and the Falcons got the ball back one more time with 1:52 remainning and no timeouts.dddddddddddd They managed only first down before the Bucs closed it out.We had four trips into the red zone and came away with one touchdown, Ryan said. Weve got to be much better.KOETTERS DEBUTFormer Atlanta offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter was a winner in his debut as an NFL head coach.Koetter was splashed with a bucket of Gatorade and given the game ball by Winston. Also reveling in the victory was Tampa Bays new defensive coordinator, Mike Smith, who was head coach of the Falcons for seven years until being fired after the 2014 season.All right, Koetter quipped. Good guys win.
