Cricket News England hope Jofra Archer is on target against Steve Smith in second Ashes Test

first_imgLondon: England are set to field a revamped attack featuring fast bowler Jofra Archer as they try to finally get Australia’s batting star Steve Smith out cheaply and level the Ashes in the second Test at Lord’s.Holders Australia, bidding to win their first away Ashes series for 18 years, humbled England last time out thanks in large part to Smith, who returned to this level following a 12-month ban for his involvement in a ball-tampering scandal with two centuries as they cruised to a 251-run first Test win at Edgbaston.England have only twice won the Ashes after losing the opener—when all-rounder Ian Botham turned the 1981 series on its head with several superb solo efforts, and in the thrilling 2005 contest which they edged 2-1.Defeat at Edgbaston was made worse for England by the fact that James Anderson, their all-time leading wicket-taker, broke down after bowling just four overs with a calf injury that has ruled the 37-year-old swing specialist out of a Lord’s encounter starting Wednesday.“We are very aware that England played without James Anderson, one of their best players and we got lucky,” said Australia coach Justin Langer.“That’s the truth of it, with him not playing. He’s a brilliant fast bowler, one of the all-time greats, so if he only bowls four overs for the match then we got lucky there.“Here at Lord’s there’s different conditions and different pressures so we just have to make sure we’re right for this Test match,” added the former Australia opener, who played at the ‘home of cricket’ for English county Middlesex.Anderson’s absence means England are set to give a Test debut to Archer, who will be returning to the ground where he bowled the dramatic Super Over that sealed a thrilling World Cup final win over New Zealand last month.But the 24-year-old, coached at Sussex by former Australia paceman Jason Gillespie, has played just 28 first-class matches and Langer was looking to his batsmen to wear Archer down in a way that’s not possible in a one-day international, where bowlers are restricted to a maximum of 10 overs.“It’s the same for everyone in Test cricket, get them into their second, third and fourth spells,” Langer said.‘More ready than ever’ -But a defiant Archer insisted he was ready for the challenge, having proved his fitness for Sussex in a 2nd XI match against Gloucestershire during which he took 6-27 in the first innings and then scored 108 after a side strain ruled him out of contention at Edgbaston.“I’ve played a lot more red-ball cricket and it’s my preferred format,” Archer said. “I’m more ready than I’ve ever been.“I bowled 50 overs in one game for Sussex and am the one usually bowling at the end.England are also set to field left-arm spinner Jack Leach, who scored a career-best 92 in the one-off Test win over Ireland at Lord’s last month, after Moeen Ali was dropped following the off-spinner’s lacklustre display at Edgbaston.Analysis by CricViz shows Smith averages a modest 34.90 against left-arm spin compared to a superb overall Test mark of nearly 63.But as for suggestions Smith had an inherent weakness when confronted with this type of bowling, Langer replied: “No, I don’t buy into it.“He has got this incredible ability to solve problems.” Australia could rotate their attack at Lord’s, with left-armer Mitchell Johnson and Josh Hazlewood looking to test an England top order prone to collapse.“Whether it’s a green top or a dry wicket, we have really good options,” said Langer.“We have six high-class fast bowlers and we’ll work out what’s going to be best for this Test match and the whole series.” For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Mike Hopkins coaches his first game: ‘That was pretty surreal’

first_img Published on December 5, 2015 at 5:44 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3 Related Stories Georgetown bigs outmuscle No. 14 Syracuse in 79-72 winFast reaction: 3 quick takeaways from Syracuse’s 79-72 loss to GeorgetownSyracuse community reacts to loss against former Big East rival Georgetown WASHINGTON, D.C. — Mike Hopkins’ fist sat under his chin, his unwavering gaze focused in on the first play of his head coaching career. The top button of his light blue shirt was covered by his perfectly-placed red and blue striped tie. His suit jacket was on. His composure was perfect to the naked eye.The first few possessions seemed the same, with the head coach rarely getting out of his seat. When he did, whatever he said was likely drowned out by the sold out Verizon Center crowd.“I always visualized myself doing it,” Hopkins said. “I was excited. I was really excited.”He watched a first half in which Syracuse shot 2-of-13 from 3 and was outrebounded 20-11. He watched the Orange fall back by as many as 21 on a third-chance putback by Bradley Hayes. He watched as Syracuse’s comeback attempt fell short in a 79-72 loss to SU’s former Big East rival on Saturday.It was all done on the backdrop of Hopkins’ first game as a head coach. A Syracuse assistant for 20 years, he was promoted to interim coach when the NCAA announced Jim Boeheim’s nine-game suspension would begin nearly a month before it was supposed to.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I think he did a good job of being uplifting,” Michael Gbinije said. “He brought some energy for us when we needed it. … He’s just a genuinely positive guy. It was our first game with him. His first game with us.”When the Hoyas doubled Syracuse’s score at 24-12, the newly-minted head coach called a timeout and waved his players vigorously toward the bench.It was on that bench that Hopkins kept an open seat for Boeheim, with his name written on a piece of tape going from top to bottom. When Hopkins got emotional during his postgame press conference it was when he said he wanted to win it for him.Before tipoff, Gbinije said a couple of the players discussed playing for Boeheim, so he could see the product of the program that he’s built. The loss left the players short of their goal. And still, Hopkins is left with eight more games without his mentor — one that can’t provide that service when he needs it the most.“Imagine if all of a sudden someone came and said you can’t talk to your father for a month and you live down the street,” Hopkins said. “That’s tough.”With Syracuse in the middle of its run to cut a 21-point lead down to six, Hopkins unbuttoned the top of his shirt and loosened his tie. He took his jacket off.After a Trevor Cooney 3, he stomped on the court, hoping to inspire his team to get the timely stop it lacked all night. He put his hands to his hips as Cooney turned the ball over after tripping to the ground as the game trickled out of reach. He turned to face his bench. Nearly all the Georgetown fans in attendance began chanting “Where is Boeheim?”But Boeheim wasn’t there for any of it. From midnight on Saturday until Jan. 9, the head coaching job is for a man who Boeheim’s already deemed his predecessor. It’s not Hopkins’, yet. But for the next eight games, it’s his team to lead.“I felt very comfortable,”Hopkins said. “There was something … I felt like I was playing. That was pretty surreal.” Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
