INSPIRED by Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, India are on course to take a 2-0 series lead after reducing England to 78-4 in their second innings in Mohali.The tourists trail by 56 runs at stumps on day three of the third Test, with just six wickets remaining and Virat Kohli’s team having only batted once.The sole hope of any meaningful resistance for Alastair Cook’s men appears to be Joe Root, who will resume on 36 today, alongside Gareth Batty (0 not out).Beginning the day on 271-6, India reached 417 all out, a lead of 134. Jadeja built on an overnight score of 31 to get to a career-best 90, falling just short of a ton when he picked out Chris Woakes at long-on off Adil Rashid (4-118).Ashwin had earlier departed for 72, edging to Jos Buttler trying to drive Ben Stokes (5-73), bringing an end to their stand of 97 for the seventh wicket. The tail continued to wag, though, Jayant Yadav (55) supplying a valuable first Test half-century as he and Jadeja put on 80.England were then forced to rearrange their top order, Haseeb Hameed unable to bat due to a finger injury, prompting Root to be elevated to partner Cook.The skipper survived two lbw appeals in the space of four deliveries, with one India review overturned and a second from Cook upheld, as he passed Steve Waugh to sit 10th on the list of leading Test run-scorers with 10 934, behind Allan Border.Nothing could save the captain, though, when Ashwin (3-19) bowled him through the gate for 12.Moeen Ali could only add five from 20 deliveries before chipping Ashwin to Jayant at mid-on.Wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel did brilliantly to hold a catch when Jonny Bairstow (15) tried to chop down on a delivery that stayed low from Jayant (1-12).And a final late blow came when Stokes (5) fell victim lbw to Ashwin, a successful review showing the delivery hitting the top of off stump.(Omnisport.com)ENGLAND 1st innings 283 (J.

Jurgen Klopp Jurgen Klopp is expecting a “loud and wild” atmosphere when Premier League leaders Liverpool travel to Everton for the Merseyside derby today.Liverpool thrashed Watford 5-0 on Wednesday to maintain their one-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table. Both teams have 10 games left to play and Klopp is expecting a tough encounter against Everton.“Of course, the fans of Everton don’t want us to win anything and probably for our fans it’s the same the other way. But in the game, it’s only very emotional and passionate.“I hope it will be like that, that’s how football should be. At Goodison they really support their team, so now let’s go there and use the atmosphere of course. It will be loud, it will be wild, it will be everything – and we have to deliver on the pitch as well.” Liverpool beat their Merseyside rivals 1-0 in December thanks to a last-gasp goal from Divock Origi.That result means Everton are winless in 18 matches against Liverpool in all competitions.“It is a special game for both, for the city also, for our fans a special match, for their fans also a special match,” said Everton boss Marco Silva.“I managed my first Merseyside derby last December and what I felt was a special match for both teams.”This will be the 200th top-flight meeting between Everton and Liverpool, becoming only the second fixture to have been played that many times in the top English league after Aston Villa vs Everton (202).Everton are winless in their last 18 encounters with Liverpool in all competitions (D9 L9), their longest ever such streak against their Merseyside rivals.Despite remaining unbeaten in their last 16 league meetings with Everton, Liverpool are looking to do the double over the Toffees for just the third time in the last eight seasons (also in 2011-12 and 2016-17).Premier League meetings between Everton and Liverpool have produced more red cards than any other fixture in the history of the competition (21).Liverpool have scored more 90th-minute winning goals in Premier League games against Everton than any side has against another in the competition (5).Liverpool have conceded fewer away goals than any other side in the Premier League this season (8).Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Junior attack Nicky Galasso will miss the 2013 season with a lower-body injury and surgery, SU Athletics announced in a press release Tuesday.Galasso transferred from North Carolina before the beginning of the semester earlier this month. He scored 56 points off 24 goals and 32 assists in his ACC Freshman of the Year season in 2011 before playing limited minutes in 2012 due to the lingering effects of breaking his foot in Nov. 2011.He was expected to contend for a starting spot this season.“It’s tough on the group, I think it’s tough on Nick and his family and the staff, too,” Syracuse head coach John Desko said. “We were excited to see what he could do out there.”Galasso suffered the season-ending injury last week in practice, according to Syracuse men’s lacrosse information director Mike Morrison. He will be able to redshirt and retain his year of eligibility.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments Related Stories Transfers provide boost, integrate into team Published on January 29, 2013 at 1:24 pm Contact Jacob: firstname.lastname@example.org | @Jacob_Klinger_ Facebook Twitter Google+
