SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium -- Nico Rosberg beat Red Bulls Max Verstappen to pole position by 0.149s on a weekend where he is looking to capitalise on teammate Lewis Hamiltons grid penalty at the Belgian Grand Prix.Rosberg set the fastest time with a 1:46.744, but the margin to Red Bull and Ferrari was smaller than expected on a day when few drivers improved on their second attempt in Q3. Kimi Raikkonen secured third on the grid for Ferrari, 0.166s off Rosberg, with Sebastian Vettel a further 0.198s off after complaining of a lack of traction out of the final corner.Daniel Ricciardo had to settle for fifth after sailing well wide of the apex on his final attempt and ended up with a 0.323s deficit to teammate Verstappen, who nailed his first attempt in Q3 to the delight of a large crowd of travelling Dutch fans. Force India will line up sixth and seventh ahead of Valtteri Bottas, who was down on power due to an engine software issue in his Williams.Jenson Button qualified eighth in the updated McLaren, proving the progress Honda has made with its engine and turbo updates on a power-sensitive circuit. Felipe Massa rounded out the top ten after suffering from the same software issue as Bottas and locking up into the first corner on his single flying lap in Q3.Rosberg, Raikkonen, Vettel and Ricciardo all set their fastest times in Q2 on the soft compound, meaning they will start on yellow-striped tyres while the rest of the top 10, including Verstappen on the front row, will start on the more delicate super-softs.Romain Grosjean will start 11th on the grid ahead of Kevin Magnussen, who secured Renaults best qualifying position of the season in 12th. Cheap Manchester United Jersey. . Esteban Gutierrez qualified 13th but faces a five-place grid penalty for impeding Pascal Wehrlein in a dangerous manner during final practice.

Daniil Kvyats run of disappointing qualifying performances continued down in 19th place ahead of Marcus Ericsson, who is due a 10-place grid drop for using his sixth turbocharger of the season this weekend.As expected, Hamilton completed a single lap at a pedestrian pace to ensure he qualified within 107% of the fastest time, as per the regulations, but without burning through any more sets of tyres than necessary.He will be joined on the back row by Fernando Alonso, who has a 35-place grid penalty of his own, but did not set a lap time after exiting the pits and coming to a halt at the top of Eau Rouge. Honda detected an anomaly with his power unit ahead of the session, but believed it was fixed before sending him out on track. Despite failing to set a time within 107%, Alonso is expected to be allowed to start the race based on his previous practice times.

Ross Taylor has not had it easy over the past few years. Brandon Mebane Jersey . He lost the captaincy in a leadership switch so acrimonious it prompted newspaper tirades, radio-talkback swearing, and blazer bonfires. He was hit so hard in the gonads in 2015, he required surgery and a recovery period of two months. In between, he had seen his mentor battle cancer twice before tragically losing the fight. And just as Taylor finished up one of his worst batting tours, in India, Brendon McCullums book cast fresh aspersions on Taylor s leadership, and told of rifts that will probably never heal.He was down on his luck. Before this Pakistan series, Taylor was the sullen sitcom protagonist muttering at least things cant get any worse. But then peals of thunder rang out and galumphing raindrops began to fall. He was the cartoon character who had been beaten up on the city sidewalk before, from the 16th floor, a grand piano came whistling down.It was an eye problem. Taylor was in one of the worse form ruts of his career and, on top of it all, he had developed an eye problem. The bad-taste Twitter jokes almost wrote themselves. Would he need a seeing-eye dog at the crease? Would New Zealand Cricket issue the team-sheet in braille? If he was thrown a piece of fielding equipment to place behind the wicketkeeper, would he snatch the helmet and start racing around thinking hed pouched a catch at slip?When it was announced he would play in this Test despite the ailment, knives may have been sharpened in the media. Headlines with the phrase blind ambition may have been penciled in. Hot-takes ending with should have seen this coming were dreamt up and kept on mental standby.Yet, just as in 2012, when his captaincy was at its nadir following a Test in Galle, Taylors response to personal crisis was runs. In the first innings at Hamilton, he had hit four boundaries faster than you could say pterygium, the salvo leaving Pakistans early momentum punctured. He departed to an excellent in-ducker for 37, but was almost immediately fluent when he came to the crease in the second innings - shellacking short balls behind backward point, and cracking a few through the covers for good measure.Imran Khan would add to Taylors ailments by drawing blood with a lifter that hit his glove in the 56th over and, before long, Wahab Riaz had made it his second-session mission to hit him there again. A microcosm of Taylors larger plight began to play out. He was ducking bouncers like questions about his place in the team, he was diverting balls off his hip like suggestions his dealings with coach Mike Hesson had been forever soured. Occasionally, he would lean back, blast a ball behind point, and remind us all of his ferocious talent as a batsman. When he pulled a ball to the boundary the blinding 290 in Perth was brought to mind. When he shuffled forward to smother Azhar Alis spin, the lionhearted 104 in a Dubai draw was briefly remembered.Late in the day, with a part-time legspinner bowling, and quick runs to be had, he even resisted the old urge to dust off the old leg side heave. This was the shot that had made him IPL riches; it had even helped bring him a famous World Cup hundred against Pakistan. Taken instead were the more measured leg side options: the lap sweeps and the well-timed flicks off the toes. As he neared his hundred, talk of failing eyes had been forgotten - it was the power in his wrists, and the spring in his feet that entered the conversation. It was his decision-making that caused the flutter online.Leading into this game over three or four days, I was wondering if Id play this Test match, Taylor said after play. But Im very happy that I made that decision. There were definitely thoughts in my mind not to play. It was good to draw on experience - Ive been in that situation before - and put the team in a good position.However the Test ends on Tuesday, Taylor will begin to prepare for his surgery, which is scheduled for the following day. It is said be a straightforward procedure, which should take no more than six weeks to recover from.As he prepares for the layoff, he has reminded fans this New Zealand team is lucky to have him. And that though events seem to continually conspire to push him out completely, cricket is fortunate Taylor keeps fighting to stay.*The 104 in Dubai had come in a draw. The article had originally said it had come in a loss. Derwin James Jersey . Once again Jordan Cieciwa (@FitCityJordan) and I (@LynchOnSports) go head to head in our picks.

MARNE, Mich. -- Dalton Sargeant won at Berlin Raceway on Saturday night for his first ARCA Racing Series victory, taking advantage of late contact between leader Josh Williams and Chase Briscoe.The 18-year-old Sargeant, from Boca Raton, Florida, easily held off Briscoe -- his car damaged on the left front after the run-in with Williams -- to end the Indiana drivers winning streak at four races.Driving the No. 55 Toyota Racing Development Toyota for Venturini Motorsports, Sargeant pulled away on the final restart in the 200-lap race on the 0.48-mile paved oval.The 21-year-old Briscoe was coming consecutive victories at Winchester, Iowa, Clermont and Pocono. Spencer Pulley Jersey. The points leader was racing Williams for the lead when they made contact going through the first two turns and ended up in the outside grass on the backstretch, with Williams car tangled up in foam and tire barriers.Matt Kurzejewski was third, followed by Bret Holmes, A.J. Fike, Clair Zimmerman, Tom Hessert, Thomas Praytor and Ed Pompa. Williams was 10th, 10 laps down.

Four of the best teams in Counter-Strike remained on the final day of competition at the Esports Championship Series Season 2 Finals in Anaheim, CA, but only one would walk away victorious. Chris Smalling Jersey . At the end of the day, Astralis claimed its title by avenging its loss at the ELEAGUE grand finals against OpTic Gaming.OpTic Gaming and Astralis set up grand final rematchThe first semifinal of the day saw OpTic Gaming square off against Team EnVyUs. Seizing control of Game 1 on Overpass from the onset, OpTic dominated from start to finish in a 16-3 stomp. Will RUSH Wierzba was on fire with a 23/10 KD (kills/death ratio) and a 109.1 ADR (average damage per round) in the win. Game 2 was a closer contest, even if the end result was ultimately the same. EnVyUs got ahead early with a 3-0 lead, but ran headfirst into the Green Wall in the gun rounds. OpTic went on a 15-4 run to reach map point, but EnVyUs would fight back. EnVyUs teased a comeback by taking five straight wins before OpTic closed out a 16-12 win. RUSH topped the charts again with a 25/19 KD and 94.3 ADR, both game-highs.The second match of the day was a bit surprising, as Astralis came away with a 2-0 sweep over SK Gaming. While SK had been looking down on their luck as of late, no one could have predicted their poor performance in this series. In Game 1 on Cache, SK Gaming looked completely out of sorts as Astralis jumped ahead to a 10-1 lead. They would try to recover with eight consecutive round wins between the end of the first half and the start of the second half, but would eventually fall off again with six straight round losses to give Astralis the 16-9 win. Game 2 was an even more dominant showing from Astralis, this time starting off strong with an 11-1 lead before finishing things up 16-4. Nicolai dev1ce Reedtz was the top man in this series with an out of this world 46/19 KD and 97.6 ADR.Astralis gets their revenge in the grand finalsThe stage was now set for a rematch from last weeks ELEAGUE Season 2 grand finals between OpTic Gaming and Astralis. While everyone was hoping for a great series, what we actually got was swift revenge from the Danish juggernauts. Game 1 was on Overpass, and it looked like OpTic were still warming up. Astralis torched the North American squad in the first half by a score of 14-1 before finishing things up in the second half for a 16-6 win. Markus Kjaerbye Kj?rbye exploded for a 24/10 KD and 107.9 ADR.Game 2 switched over to Train and was a much closer affair. After 11 rounds, OpTic had a 6-5 lead and it looked like we finally had a series on our hands. Astralis shut that door really quick, though, with nine straight wins to take a 14-6 lead. While OpTic won five straight to close the gap a bit, Astralis finally wrapped things up with a 16-11 win to claim the ECS Season 2 crown. This time it was Andreas Xyp9x H?jsleth who led the charge with a 25/15 KD and 94.7 ADR, giving Astralis their first major title of 2016 in convincing fashion. Marouane Fellaini Jersey .

BARCELONA, Spain -- Barcelona reached an agreement on Monday to send midfielder Rafinha to Celta Vigo for one season. Marlon Mack Jersey . The 20-year-old Brazilian has come up through Barcelonas youth ranks since he was 13. Rafinha holds dual nationality and has played for Spain in the under-16, U17 and U19 levels. But last year he switched to Brazil, where he played in its under-20 team at the 2013 South American Youth Championship in Argentina. The attacking midfielder made his debut with Barcelonas senior team in November 2011, coming on for Cesc Fabregas. Rafinha extended his contract with Barcelona until 2016 in June, just before being sent to Celta on loan. Rafinhas older brother, midfielder Thiago Alcantara, who also came up through Barcelonas youth ranks, moved from the Spanish champions to Bayern Munich on Sunday to be reunited with coach Pep Guardiola. Bayern agreed to pay 25 million euros ($32.75 million) for the 22-year-old Thiago, a son of Mazinho, who was a member of Brazils 1994 World Cup champions. Thiago helped Spains under-21 team win the European championship last month, scoring a hat trick in the final against Italy. He was born in Italy to Brazilian parents and debuted for Barcelonas first team in 2008. Marvin Harrison Jersey .

If Julianna Pe?a defeats Valentina Shevchenko on Jan. Adam Vinatieri Jersey . 28 and still doesnt get a UFC title shot, it wont be just business as usual.Pe?a is scheduled to headline next months UFC Fight Night event in Denver, but isnt afraid to admit shes not happy about the matchup.After defeating Cat Zingano at UFC 200 in July, Pe?a felt she had earned a shot at Amanda Nunes for the UFCs bantamweight championship. That shot went to Ronda Rousey instead, who lost the title to Holly Holm in shocking fashion last year and hasnt fought since.Girls who are coming off knockout [losses] get to fight for the title again, said Pe?a, who is 4-0 in the UFC and has won The Ultimate Fighter reality series.I still have yet to wrap my brain around the fact that Ive beaten everybody and still not been able to sniff a title shot.Pe?a (8-2) hasnt been afraid to share her opinion. Earlier this year, Shevchenko revealed shed been approached about fighting Pe?a at UFC 205 on Nov. 12 in New York. Pe?a responded, matter-of-factly, that she was more interested in a title fight.When the shot went to Rousey (12-1), Pe?a was so upset she openly talked about fighting outside the UFC. She eventually agreed to the Shevchenko bout, in part because it was a five-round main event.After that, if the UFC tries to book another bantamweight title fight without her, the consequences will be severe, according to Pe?a.If not this time, I will raise hell, Pe?a said. I think [UFC president Dana White] knows Im a firecracker and I definitely dont think he wants to see the wrath that will come if I dont get a title shot.I think he definitely knows Im the clear-cut answer for getting a title shot and Ive been the clear-cut answer. If I dont get a title shot, I quit.Pe?a, who has moved her training from Spokane, Washington, to Chicago ahead of this bout, said she was also irked about the recent announcement of an inaugural featherweight championship fight between Holm and Germaine de Randamie.According to Pe?a, shes asked to fight Harmless Holly on several occasions, but its never come together. Seeing Holm compete for a title even though she is coming off back-to-back losses is bulls---, in Pe?as book.All that said, Pe?a says her focus is now on Shevchenko and she will take care of business on Jan. 28. The UFC better take care of business afterwards.I know shes going to be working her takedown defense immensely, Pe?a said. Shes going to be on her bicycle. I think its funny she says Im trying to escape a fight with her. Im like, Honey, it has nothing to do with you. Ill fight you all day long and twice on Sundays. It has nothing to do with you besides politics at this point.She says Im running and escaping the fight? Well see whos going to be on their bicycle and whos going to be standing in the center of the cage, ready to bite down on their mouthpiece. Reggie Wayne Jersey . Datsyuk will miss Tuesdays game against New Jersey and could be sidelined longer, while Cleary will likely miss at least the next three games. Its been an injury-plagued season for Datsyuk, who has suited up for just 39 games. Johnny Unitas Jersey . Aaron Harrison scored a 22 points for Kentucky (6-1), which has won four in a row following a Nov. 12 loss to current No. 1 Michigan State. Julius Randle overcame a scoreless first half and added his sixth double-double in as many games with 14 points and 10 rebounds. http://www.coltsfansshop.com/Colts-Al-Woods-Draft-Jersey/ .J. -- Josh Cribbs was in the Pro Bowl in February and out of a job six months later. CHICAGO -- NBA star Dwyane Wades cousin was an innocent bystander, police said, pushing her baby in a stroller near a Chicago school where she intended to register her children when she was fatally shot Friday.Nykea Aldridges famous relative, who grew up in Chicagos south suburbs, tweeted to his nearly 6 million followers about her death, saying Friday it was an act of senseless gun violence and posting Saturday morning that Chicago needs more help& more hands on deck. Wade ended both days of tweets with the hashtag EnoughIsEnough.The 32-year-old mother of four recently relocated to an area on the citys South Side, her family said. She was near the school, which is about a mile and a half southwest of the University of Chicago, when two males walked up and fired shots at a third man but hit Aldridge in the head and arm. She wasnt the intended target, police said.Police said Saturday afternoon that two people of interest were being questioned by detectives but no one has been charged in the shooting. Authorities are investigating whether the encounter between the men was a robbery, possibly involving a driver from a ridesharing company, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.Chicago has been plagued by gun violence for years, especially in a few South and West Side neighborhoods. This July alone, there were 65 homicides -- the most that month since 2006.Wade, whose charitable organization, Wades World Foundation, does community outreach in the Chicago area, signed with the Chicago Bulls in July after 13 years with the Miami Heat. He and his mother, pastor Jolinda Wade, participated Thursday via satellite in a town hall meeting in Chicago on gun violence hosted by ESPN.My cousin was killed today in Chicago. Another act of senseless gun violence. 4 kids lost their mom for NO REASON. Unreal. (hash)EnoughIIsEnough, he tweeted Friday. Marlon Mack Jersey. Wade also tweeted Saturday morning: The city of Chicago is hurting. We need more help& more hands on deck. Not for me and my family but for the future of our world. The YOUTH! adding in a following tweet, These young kids are screaming for help!!! (hash)EnoughIsEnough.Outside the emergency room where Aldridge was pronounced dead, Jolinda Wade clutched her sister and spoke for the family as mourners stood in a circle holding hands and praying. She said shed participated in the town hall meeting never knowing that the next day we would be the ones that would actually be living and experiencing it.Were still going to try to help and empower people like the one who senselessly shot my niece in the head, Jolinda Wade said. Were going to try to help these people to transform their minds and give them a different direction.It is not the first time Dwyane Wades family in Chicago has been affected by gun violence. His nephew, Darin Johnson, was shot twice in the leg in 2012 but recovered.Chicago had recorded 381 homicides by the end of July, up 30 percent from the same period of 2015. Its murder rate is higher than the more populous cities of New York and Los Angeles.Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has spoken about the citys violence, and tweeted about Aldridges death Saturday morning. He first posted, Dwyane Wades cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!, and then tweeted, My condolences to Dwyane Wade and his family, on the loss of Nykea Aldridge. They are in my thoughts and prayers.Family members are caring for Aldridges baby, who wasnt hurt.

Eddie Alvarez didnt know what hit him. Romelu Lukaku Jersey .The crowd at Madison Square Garden yelled and cheered as Alvarez absorbed blow after blow with a stunned look on his face. Conor McGregor verbally lashed out as only he can do, and all of a sudden the main event of UFC 205 became a reality -- and Alvarez clearly wasnt ready.Thanks to his unique ability to sell fights with his mouth by going deep inside the head of his opponents, its not out of the question to believe a fight against the UFC featherweight champion McGregor begins at the moment the contract is signed. If you consider Tuesdays wild UFC 205 news conference in New York as a de facto first round of McGregors main event against the lightweight champion Alvarez, it would be difficult to score it as anything other than a clear victory for the Irish superstar.McGregor (20-3) seemed right at home as the centerpiece of the UFCs long-awaited debut in New York City and produced some of his finest work in terms of talking trash toward anyone who got in his way, from Alvarez (28-4), to Nov. 12 undercard fighters Donald Cerrone and Jeremy Stephens.There are those, of course, who will tell that you that prefight talk is just that -- words to market a fight. Just like theres an argument to be made that Alvarez, a street-tough veteran of 32 fights in promotions all over the globe (and the epitome of a Philadelphia fighter), has been around enough fight banter before to be affected.But Alvarez, 32, who upset Rafael dos Anjos in July to win the title, certainly lacks experience in a setting exactly like the one he found himself on Tuesday -- on a main event stage this large against an opponent this skilled in the art of mental warfare.In that regard, Alvarez looked largely unprepared to deal with the psychological storm that comes with standing across from McGregor, whose history of getting inside the mind of opponents is hard to overlook, dating back to his UFC debut in 2013. From wearing down Jose Aldo to outright breaking Dustin Poirier and forcing him to fight off emotions, McGregor, 28, is a proven master of manipulation through equal methods of intimidation and infuriation.An outright comparison to a young Muhammad Ali in this case wouldnt be hyperbole as McGregors colorful public act isnt just a show designed to drive up his bottom line through entertainment. Its a calculated target for the emotional weak spot of his opponents.Alvarez might not be subject to fear of McGregors power or reckless confidence or even his uncanny ability for precise predictions through his alter ego Mystic Mac, but its worthy of consideration whether Alvarez, the champion of the larger weight class between the two, is vulnerable to something different altogether -- overconfidence -- with McGregors clown prince routine acting as fuel.On July 7, at the postfight news conference after his title victory, Alvarez talked about the number of lightweight elites he has beaten in the UFC, from Gilbert Melendez to Anthony Pettis and dos Anjos, before mentioning his preferred choice for his first title defense.I would ask Dana White, please to give me an easier fight like Conor McGregor, Alvarez said. I deserve that. I have been fighting the best guys, so I would like a gimme fight.Alvarez was just as confident on Tuesday.This guy has eight minutes of fight in him. Thats it, Alvarez said. He quits after eight minutes each fight. Hes not a championship fighter. He has never been. And he has never, ever fought anyone in UFC like me, ever.The basis for Alvarezs stance, outside of natural confidence in himself, is that McGregors run to stardom has been largely hand-picked, which he explained at length in July during a UFC 201 Q&A session.McGregor fans are a bit swayed, you guys are a bit biased, Alvarez said. Youre not seeing what I see as a fighter. What Im seeing is not the right style matchups. Hes fighting the perfect style matchups for himself. Hes not fighting the guys who will threaten the way I can.When you mix his wrestling ability with McGregors vulnerability on the ground, theres some credence to Alvarezs words. However, as McGregor argued on Tuesday, theres just as easily a case to be made for the opposite, with Alvarezs weakness meshing perfectly with McGregors greatest strength.Like I said, hes chinny. He has a chin, McGregor said. He gets cracked, he gets dropped, and it has happened throughout his career. Hes a weathered fighter. Hes on his way out and hes very, very lucky to be in the position that he is in. One round is all it will take me to knock him out.Either way, Alvarez failed to come away from their first public appearance looking victorious -- a notion that was hammered home by the final question of the news conference, as a fan disguised as a media member badly trolled the lightweight champion before berating him with expletives.Instead of firing a witty or explosive comeback, Alvarez seemed confused, repeatedly asking, Whats your question? as McGregor joined the crowd in celebrating with delight.His question is why are you talking s---? Thats his question, McGregor interrupted. Why the f--- you up here talking s---? Say it like it is, youre blessed. Youre blessed that I chose you. Youre blessed that I chose to whoop your ass next. Say it like it f---ing is.Its true that Alvarez wouldve never had a prayer by attempting to out-Conor his opponent in a verbal joust of one-liners, but he failed to compete on Tuesday just the same, choosing to laugh off or ignore insults at one turn, only to be overwhelmed at the next.Meanwhile, McGregor had his way with conducting the cheers from an adoring and rowdy crowd. Its quite possible that none of this will matter once the two fighters square off at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 12, what is being billed as the biggest card in the companys 23-year history, but McGregor will do his best to take advantage of every situation, with Tuesday just a simple demonstration of that fact.McGregor appeared the more comfortable, brash and calculated of the two on Tuesday, ready to step inside the Octagon at the worlds most famous arena confident in his history of subliminally cracking the armor of his opponent long before the fight has officially begun. In many cases, McGregors opponents have been the last to know that it already has. David Beckham Jersey . Woodson said during a radio interview Thursday that the Knicks Carmelo Anthony doesnt get the same calls as other superstars. Joel Castro Pereira Jersey . There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me. http://www.manunitedfcpro.com/Kids-Paul-Pogba-Jersey/ . Aaron Harrison scored a 22 points for Kentucky (6-1), which has won four in a row following a Nov. 12 loss to current No. 1 Michigan State. Julius Randle overcame a scoreless first half and added his sixth double-double in as many games with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Dhoni from the block Some wicketkeepers are conmens conmen. They practise grifting for griftings sake. It is an urge that suddenly possesses them when they put those big gloves on. Take MS Dhoni for example. He walks before he is given out, he withdraws run-out appeals against dozy batsmen, but the wicketkeeper within doesnt allow him to give up on trickery. More than the gains, it is about devotion to an art form. It is not like claiming grounded catches or flicking the bail when nobody is watching and appealing for a hit-wicket; the big joy is doing it legally and in full view.This one is from the back alleys of street cricket. Its anytown, India, during the hot summer, in one of those IPL matches that merges into many others. There is nothing to remember this match by, except this, the fifth ball of the last over of the first innings. Chennai Super Kings Joginder Sharma bowls a yorker that squeezes under the bat of Laxmi Ratan Shukla, Kolkata Knight Riders last recognised batsman. For some reason, Ishant Sharma, the No. 10 wants to steal a bye and take strike last ball. Shukla, on whose watch the first four balls have yielded 11, tries to send Ishant back but it is too late.Dhoni sees that both batsmen are at the strikers end, so he lobs the ball over their heads to Joginder, at the non-strikers end. This in itself shows some presence of mind, but the really shrewd thinking is yet to come. As Dhoni walks towards the stumps, he sees Shukla step out of his crease to pat Ishant on his shoulder, perhaps just to reassure him that its okay, that his intention was noble but not its timing. Dhoni raises his left hand, asking Joginder to wait before breaking the wicket. Only once he sees Ishant cross Shukla does Dhoni gesture with his right hand, like a traffic policeman, telling Joginder to break the wicket. Knight Riders have lost Shukla. Dhoni has waited till the last moment to take the slightest advantage.Saint SangaKumar Sangakkara has fooled much of the world with his polished accent and Spirit of Cricket lecture. He is not fooling me. Not if he does this to poor Ahmed Shehzad. This is 2013, a Pakistan-Sri Lanka ODI that could be any other, and perhaps Sangakkara knows Shehzad is going to become a selfie-taking menace soon. Shehzad looks to take advantage of the big boundaries in Dubai, and plays a nice chip over cover. He turns blind for the second, trusting Misbah-ul-Haqs call.Sangakkara knows Shehzad doesnt know where the ball is because he hasnt bothered looking, so well before the throw arrives, he mock-collects the ball as a prelude to pretending to whip the bails off. Shehzad panics and dives awkwardly. Sangakkara then collects the lobbed throw from the deep with the satisfied air of one who has robbed a man at gunpoint, except as Shehzad, looking on sheepishly, now understands, it was done with a stick not a gun. He needs treatment after hurting himself in the dive. Even Misbah smiles. Danny Morrison, on air then, sums it up: Oh Sangers, you old dog.Bouchers slick flickMark Boucher rarely got to stand up to the stumps, so when he did, as in this case, he might have thought, I dont care if it is the genial-looking Marvan Atapattu. All I care is about is entering the wicketkeepers trickery Hall Of Fame.Sri Lanka are chasing 264 in Adelaide. They need 147 off 143 with seven wickets in hand. Atapattuu and Tillakaratne Dilshan have added 49. Sergio Romero Jersey. Johan Botha turns an offbreak past Atapattus inside edge. The ball lobs up towards the leg side. Boucher starts appealing for lbw even as the ball is in the air and he is moving towards it. It will probably land about a foot off the pitch. The appeal comes first. Then Boucher, his arms still up in appeal, catches the ball.Now as a batsman made nervous by an appeal - and it is a pretty good shout - you often look for a leg-bye, especially because if the wicketkeeper had collected the ball, he would already have done something with it. But Boucher keeps appealing, hands in the air. So Atapattu takes one step out to look for that leg-bye. He sees Dilshan looking at the umpire, so panics and looks to return. Exactly one second passes between that first step out and him looking to return. It is enough. Without even looking at the stumps or the batsman, Boucher flicks the ball down onto the base of leg stump. Botha is still appealing for lbw when Boucher, pissing himself, goes and tells him he has run Atapattu out.Sri Lanka go on to lose by nine runs. Dilshan was clean-shaven back then and, clearly traumatised, is still recovering by growing weird beards.The reverse Sanga If Sangakkara did what he did to Shehzad just for kicks, Dhoni often does the opposite to get run-outs. Here Mitchell Marsh should really have known better because Dhoni was doing this sort of thing to South African batsmen as far back as 2006-07. Nearly a decade on, chasing 296, Australia are cruising at 204 for 4 after 35 overs when Glenn Maxwell drives Barinder Sran past mid-off. Umesh Yadav gives spirited chase and fires in a throw at the keepers end. Marsh, running back for the third - which is, quite frankly, on - has his back to the action. He has no idea the throw is headed to his end because Dhoni looks like he might be conjuring his latest weird analogy to rubbish the DRS rather than getting ready to collect a throw. Suddenly, though, he springs into action, collects the ball without any preparation, and whips the bails off to catch Marsh short. Marsh can be blamed for not knowing that Dhoni is capable of this, but to give him the benefit of the doubt, no other wicketkeeper pulls the wool over batsmens eyes like Dhoni. At the least give him a walk-on part in The Sting if it is ever remade.The old dogThis is actually one of the more famous cases of absent-minded running by the batsman than pure trickery by the wicketkeeper. Virender Sehwag slashes to third man and strolls through for an easy single. Except that the stroll becomes a little too leisurely. He practises the shot as he goes, turns around and looks to take guard at the non-strikers end.Suddenly, to his horror, he hears his partner, Sourav Ganguly, shout Viru, Viru! but before he understands what is happening, he is out. To be fair, Sehwag has done what many do, but he has forgotten who is behind the stumps. The old dog, Sangers, has collected the lob where first slip would be and is about to send the ball to cover, when he notices that Sehwag is ambling. He takes off a glove and, as inconspicuously as possible, sends in a throw, which misses Sehwag by inches and hits the stumps to run him out.
