For the next week, the South African squad will not be enjoying romantic sunsets with their other halves. Instead, at twilight, they want to be on the cricket field, preparing for their first day-night Test in the time frame they have identified as the trickiest to play with the pink ball.As the natural light fades and artificial ones take over, the pink ball becomes what JP Duminy called gloomy and, so, more difficult to see. Duminy admitted the South African players, who have limited experience with the pink ball, dont really understand whether the colouration of ball or the changing hues from the environment affect visibility but confirmed the contrast is significant. Its definitely a difference that you see, but I cant give you the scientific reason why that is. Weve still got to work that out.At dusk, the pink ball also starts to move a little more and so, for batsmen, survival in that period is key. Youve just got to fight through that phase, Duminy said. Its obviously new to us, pink-ball cricket and day-night Test cricket. Weve got to get used to it. And thats why we wanted to bat as much as possible in that period during the warm-up game.For their warm-up match at the MCG on Saturday night, South Africa chose to bowl first to give their batsmen time in the middle when things got tough. The sun only set around 8pm - which will be the same as Adelaide - so the first hour of the final session is the most crucial. The second hour of that session takes place in complete darkness when Duminy said it actually becomes a little bit easier to see the ball.Hashim Amla batted through that twilight period and it became clear that his scoring slowed and the only chance he gave away, a catch to slip, came then. Both Duminy and Faf du Plessis were dismissed then too. With net sessions scheduled for that time, Duminy is hopeful they can tighten up. I dont know if its a danger, maybe its just something we need to be wary of. The more we can spend time in that light... its the same sort of thing in the practice nets as well. The more we can spend time under that sort of light, the easier it will be for us.The converse of all that is South Africa could end up in the field at that time, when their bowlers will come into play in a big way. After Steven Smith lamented Australias inability against the seaming, swinging or spinning ball, it may transpire that they too have problems against the pink ball, even though they are more experienced with it.Kyle Abbott and Tabraiz Shamsi were the most economical and effective bowlers at the MCG, but Duminy believes South Africas entire attack would prove useful with pink ball in hand. KG [Kagiso Rabada] has been pretty effective too, he swings the ball a little bit, Duminy said. The main thing is that most the guys are in good form, which is great for us, and its not determined by the colour of the ball in terms the areas you want to hit, the lengths you want to it, it stays the same no matter what the colour of the ball.Twilight is also a tricky time for close-in fielders, so drills will be an important part of this weeks practises. In certain positions, it becomes a little more challenging. Its all about preparation; how much time you can spend in that light, catching balls, fielding, Duminy said.If you think about any sort of sport - if you think about a golfer, for example, he needs to be on the practise range to get better. Thats the sort of approach we are taking.Because South Africa had not any time on the range, so to speak, before this tour, they were hesitant about playing a pink-ball Test when it was first proposed. Their major worry was that the series would be riding on the match and they would be at a disadvantage. The opposite has happened.As a contest, the series is over and this fixture is a dead-rubber, albeit with a difference: its Australias chance for redemption and South Africas to rally around a captain with a cloud hanging over him. Still, Duminy believes they hold the advantage. We are probably sitting in the pound seats in terms of the concerns around the pink-ball Test but that doesnt change the motivation and the desire to win the game, Duminy said. The goal was always to win the series, however that came about; now we sit with an opportunity to win 3-0, so thats the new goal. http://www.officialraidersgear.com/Raiders-Bo-Jackson-Draft-Jersey/ .

The CFLs leading rusher kept adding to his gaudy numbers this season and scored the winning touchdown with just over two minutes to play. The New Westminster, B.C., native plowed three yards into the end zone for the last score of a heated, see-saw battle between the two teams with the best records in the CFL.The war of words between Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger goes on and on. While the Manchester United boss has generally had the upper hand on the pitch over the years, both managers have had stern words for each other in the press room. Here we recall their rivalry in quotes, dating back to Mourinhos first season in English football... I dont see especially that Chelsea play more English players than we do. Who have they produced, homegrown? Just one, John Terry. - Wenger in 2005 when quizzed on Arsenals all-foreign line-up. Man Utd vs Arsenal November 19, 2016, 11:30am Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass At the beginning of the following season in August 2005, Wenger also expressed concerns over Chelseas tactics: I know we live in a world where we have only winners and losers, but once a sport encourages teams who refuse to take the initiative, the sport is in danger.Mourinho was unimpressed. Wenger has a real problem with us and I think he is what you call in England a voyeur. He is someone who likes to watch other people. There are some guys who, when they are at home, have a big telescope to see what happens in other families. Wenger must be one of them - it is a sickness. He speaks, speaks, speaks about Chelsea. Wenger has a real problem with us and I think he is what you call in England a voyeur. He is someone who likes to watch other people. Mourinho on Wenger Wenger responded with a put-down of his own. Hes out of order, disconnected with reality and disrespectful. When you give success to stupid people, it makes them more stupid sometimes and not more intelligent.And more from Mourinho... At Stamford Bridge, we have a file of quotes from Mr Wenger about Chelsea Football Club in the last 12 months - it is not a file of five pages. It is a file of 120 pages. When Mourinho departed Chelsea in September 2007, the rivalry was put on hold but that didnt stop the pair trading criticism of each other from further afield.The English like statistics a lot, said Mourinho in 2008. Do they know that Arsene Wenger has only 50 per cent of wins in the English league?When Mourinho was in charge at Real Madrid and Xabi Alonso and Sergio Ramos got booked for tactical reasons against Galatasaray in order to serve suspensions for a comfortable second leg rather than risk missing important games later in the tournament, Wenger had plenty to say. Dont miss Manchester United v Arsenal live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 11.30am on Saturday When you see how it looks on television, it is the best demonstration to think: Never do that again. It looks, frankly, horrible. Its a pity to see that from a big club.Again, it only succeeded in sparking a fiery response from Mourinho... Instead of speaking about Real Madrid, Mr Wenger should speak about Arsenal and explain how he lost 2-0 against a team in the Champions League for the first time. The history about the young kids is getting old now. Sagna, Clichy, Walcott, Fabregas, Song, Nasri, Van Persie, Arshavin are not kids. They are all top players. After a cordial start upon Mourinhos return Chelsea, Wenger was unimpressed when Juan Mata was sold to Manchester United - a move that he argued could distort the league table given that the Blues had played their final game against United the previous week while rivals still had to play them.Chelsea have already played twice against Man United, they could have sold him last week. I think if you want to respect the fairness for everybody, this should not happen.And the response... Wenger complaining is normal because he always does. Normally he should be happy that Chelsea sold a player like Juan Mata, but this is a little bit his nature.dddddddddddd I think what is not fair is that his team always has the best days to play. He’s out of order, disconnected with reality and disrespectful. When you give success to stupid people, it makes them more stupid sometimes and not more intelligent. Wenger on Mourinho In February 2014, just a few weeks later, Wenger was asked why some of Arsenals fellow title hopefuls were so keen to downplay their ambitions. It is fear to fail, he said.Mourinho delivered a memorable monologue in reply. Am I afraid of failure? He is a specialist in failure. Im not. So if one supposes hes right and Im afraid of failure, its because I dont fail many times. So maybe hes right. Im not used to failing. But the reality is hes a specialist because, eight years without a piece of silverware, that’s failure. After a decade of verbal insults, the rivalry finally escalated physically in October 2014 when Wenger shoved Mourinho during an argument on the touchline at Stamford Bridge.In hindsight, I think I should not have reacted at all, said Wenger. Its not a way to behave on a football field. Did Mourinho provoke me? That is how I felt. I did not enter Chelseas technical area.And when it was suggested to Mourinho that his Arsenal counterpart could be charged... Charged? If it was me, it would have been a stadium ban.Wenger passed up the opportunity to shake Mourinhos hand after finally getting the better of his rival in the Community Shield in August 2015 - but it was the Portuguese delivering the next public jibes. After a fiercely-contested match at Stamford Bridge, which included Gabriel being sent off after a clash with Diego Costa, Wenger criticised referee Mike Dean and went unpunished by the FA, leading to this outpouring from Mourinho: In this country, only one manager is not under pressure. Every other manager is. We cannot be below par. We have to meet the objectives. There is one outside that list, but good for him. You know who. The one who can speak about the referees before the game, after the game, can push people in the technical area, can moan, can cry in the morning in the afternoon, nothing happens. He can not achieve, keep his job, still be the king. In the rule book it says some managers can speak about the referees before and after games. Some others cannot. I am in the list of those who are punished if they speak about the referees. As Chelseas woeful start to their title defence saw them lose 3-1 at home to Southampton, Mourinho launched into another tirade, this time lasting seven minutes and including: referees are afraid to give decisions for Chelsea. The comments earned Mourinho a £50,000 fine and suspended one game stadium ban. After receiving clarification on why hed been fined, Mourinho adopted the words Wenger was allowed to use to criticise referee Mike Dean. In his post match assessment of Champions League officials after a goalless draw at Dynamo Kiev he said: The referee was weak and naive. Following Mourinhos move to Manchester United, he wasted little time before apparently aiming another dig at his French rival. Questioned about his poor 2015/16 season at Chelsea and what that had done to his reputation, Mourinho said: There are some managers, the last time they won a title was 10 years ago, the last time I won was a year ago. If I have something to prove, imagine the others! To finish 4th is not the aim. There are some managers, the last time they won a title was 10 years ago. If I have something to prove, imagine the others! To finish 4th is not the aim. Jose Mourinho Mourinho was also less than impressed by Wengers criticism of the world record transfer fee United paid for Paul Pogba. The Arsenal boss had called the £89m outlay completely crazy. Mourinho hit back: When I heard some of the comments and heard some of the managers criticising that, I dont think they ever have this problem because to have this problem, you need to be at one of the top clubs in the world. At Manchester United, it can happen.A biography of the Portuguese, quoting Mourinho as saying, Ill break his face, in reference to Wengers comments on Juan Matas January 2014 switch from Chelsea to Manchester United has also stoked the fires of the rivalry this season. There are sure to be more cutting comments from both men, ahead of their eagerly anticipated meeting at Old Trafford on Saturday.
