Vijay, Pujara hundreds put India in control

first_img(REUTERS) – Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara both hit hundreds and combined in a stand of 209 to hand India a big first innings lead over Sri Lanka on the second day of the second Test in Nagpur on Saturday.The hosts reached the close of play on 312 for two with Pujara unbeaten on 121 after his 14th Test hundred and had captain Virat Kohli not out on 54 at the other end.The world’s top-ranked test side were ahead by 107 in the first innings after Sri Lanka were bundled out for 205 on the opening day.Vijay, who missed India’s three-Test series in Sri Lanka with injury and was left out of the drawn first match in Kolkata, celebrated his return to the side with 128 runs.He top-edged a full toss from left-arm spinner Rangana Herath to be caught at short fine leg and was the lone success for the Sri Lankan attack after two sessions of fruitless toil.Kohli followed up his unbeaten ton in the last test with his 15th fifty and further deflated the touring side’s morale with his attacking knock, hitting six boundaries, and an unbroken third-wicket partnership of 96 with Pujara.Resuming the Indian innings on 11-1, both Vijay and Pujara were watchful during the first hour’s play and waited for the bad balls for scoring opportunities.Playing at the same ground where he made his debut nine years back, the 33-year-old Vijay square-drove the first ball of the morning for a four.He completed his 10th Test hundred with a single against off-spinner Dilruwan Perera, his innings studded with 11 fours and a six.Sri Lanka had a chance to dismiss him for 19 when the short-leg fielder first floored a sharp chance off Herath and then failed to run out the opener who was well out of his crease. Perera also dropped Vijay on 61 at short mid-on off paceman Lahiru Gamage.Pujara was typically poised at the other end, mostly leaving the deliveries outside his off-stump and offering a dead bat in defence.Perera got the right-hander to edge one on 25 but the ball fell well short of Angelo Mathews at slip. Pujara’s innings was otherwise spotless and he has hit 13 fours in his 284-ball knock so far.Sri Lanka had managed to keep a lid on India’s scoring rate in the first hour of play but it was after the introduction of Perera that India got momentum with both the batsmen attacking the off-spinner who went for 117 runs in 21 overs.SRI LANKA 1st innings 205 (D.

Clippers’ Doc Rivers has mixed feelings about new Coach’s Challenge rule

first_imgPLAYA VISTA — Wishes do come true.Not only are Kawhi Leonard and Paul George making themselves at home with the Clippers, but this season coach Doc Rivers got what he asked for (sort of) back in 2016.That February, Rivers advocated for a challenge flag system similar to the NFL’s following some questionable late-game calls that didn’t go the Clippers’ way.“I’ve been pushing for flag for a year now,” Rivers told Yahoo Sports then. “We should have a challenge flag. That is the third time this year that (the NBA) has come back and said it was a bad call. It doesn’t do anything for us.” Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum “I didn’t even want to; Lou and Pat asked me to do it,” Rivers said after practice Saturday. “I told them it was a foul. They basically bet me that it wasn’t a foul. I said, ‘All right, I’m throwing the flag then.’ That’s what the challenge flag was about.”And in this case, the challenge served Rivers’ purpose by proving him right, and Dozier made two of his three foul shots.Otherwise, even though he went on record requesting a challenge flag in the past, Rivers said he isn’t sure how often he’ll actually be twirling his finger at the refs, or how effective the system will prove.“My guess is, if you’re really sure, you’ll use it … in late game,” he said. “If you have a lead and you think you need a timeout anyway even though you may lose it, use it.”Added Rivers: “I would like the rule, there is a way I would like it. But I don’t like that it has to be a call to trigger the trigger. It would be nice if I saw a foul and I called it, that would be nice. But this way, I think I just think it’s a tough rule. I think it’s a foul on every play, so when you contest a foul call, there’s a chance somewhere he got fouled. And so I don’t love it in that way.”What he does appreciate, Rivers said, was the NBA’s willingness to see if new ideas stick.“I like us challenging new stuff,” he said. “I do like trying that stuff out.”Related Articles What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory For the first time this season, coaches can challenge one call per game. Those calls can include a personal foul charged to a coach’s own team, a called out-of-bounds violation, or a called goaltending or basket interference violation – but no others.A team can use its challenge on a called personal foul at any point in the game, but in the last two minutes of the fourth period or the last two minutes of overtime, coaches cannot challenge a called out-of-bounds violation or a called goaltending/basket interference violation.And unlike the NFL version of a challenge, no flags are being used. Instead a coach “must immediately signal for a challenge by twirling his/her index finger toward the referees,” according to the NBA.So if fans weren’t watching closely, they might have missed Rivers twirling his finger to trigger his first in-game challenge Thursday, when he issued the NBA’s official version of a courtroom “Objection!” mostly to win an argument with Clippers veterans Patrick Beverley and Lou Williams on the bench.With 6:30 left in the fourth quarter, Rivers challenged the call on Derrick Walton Jr., who was assessed a foul for interfering with P.J. Dozier’s 3-point attempt near the top of the arc.center_img SUNDAY OUTING?In their fourth of five preseason games, the Clippers will host the Australian professional basketball team Melbourne United at 12:30 p.m. Sunday at Staples Center, where they could play without Leonard and rookie point guard Terance Mann.Leonard made his on-court Clippers debut Thursday, playing 10:45 early in a 111-91 loss. In his limited time, he had seven point and six assists – and left the game wanting more, Rivers said.“He wanted to play more, I knew that, but that was his first live,” Rivers said. “I wasn’t going more. I don’t know if I’ll play him at all (Sunday) or not, we’ll see.”Mann said he had “a little hamstring and hip problem,” but not to worry. “I’ll be fine.” Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
