New Zealand 262 and 93 for 4 (Ronchi 38*, Ashwin 3-68) need another 341 runs to beat India 318 and 377 for 5 dec (Pujara 78, Vijay 76, Rohit 68*, Jadeja 50*, Santner 2-79)Scorecard and ball-by-ball detailsR Ashwin put India firmly on the path to winning the Kanpur Test, grabbing three wickets in a 13-over new-ball spell that blew an early hole through New Zealands hopes of saving it. jerseys from china . In the process, he also became the second-quickest bowler to 200 Test wickets in the history of the game.Tea was taken as soon as India declared their second innings at 377 for 5, leaving New Zealand the task of surviving four sessions or chasing down 434. A New Zealand win was probably out of the question, and the likelihood of a draw plummeted when Ashwin took out both their openers in the fourth over of their innings. By stumps, they had lost two more wickets, those of Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor, their most experienced batsmen.Batting against Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja on a fourth-day pitch was always going to be difficult for New Zealand. A couple of avoidable dismissals made their job even harder. Martin Guptill gave India their first breakthrough with an ill-advised slog-sweep out of the rough. He inside-edged into his front pad, and popped up a catch to silly point.With New Zealand already three down, Taylor was run out going to the non-strikers end, by a direct hit from Umesh Yadav at deep midwicket. Having already given the throw half a chance by watching the fielder rather than putting his head down and haring as fast as possible, he made the worst possible error as he crossed the crease, getting his bat past the line but failing to ground it.The other two wickets, though, were all about Ashwins skill, particularly through the air. First, his flight drew Tom Latham forward but not particularly close to the pitch of the ball. Then, instead of turning away, natural variation kept the ball going with the angle from around the wicket, beating the left-handers inside edge and hitting his front pad right in front.Like all good players of spin, Williamson has feet that can quickly adjust to being beaten in the air. But even the quickest feet cant do much when a ball turns sharply and quickly. He had reached 25 when Ashwins trajectory pulled his front leg forward and across, outside off stump. Realising he wouldnt get close to the pitch, he dragged his foot back, in a bid to give his bat room to work the ball into the leg side, but the ball just turned too far and too quickly, missing the bat entirely and pinging the withdrawn front pad bang in front.On another day, Ashwin might have had a five-for by stumps. Richard Kettleborough turned down close lbw shouts against Taylor, once from over the wicket, once from around, with the sheer amount of turn generated by the bowler working against him. There were also a couple of missed half-chances, as Umesh Yadav, backtracking from square leg, and M Vijay, running from second slip towards point with the ball dropping from behind him, failed to catch Williamson and Luke Ronchi.As it happened, New Zealand went to stumps without further loss, with Ronchi and Mitchell Santner trusting the contrasting methods that had served them well in the first innings. They kept India wicketless for the last 15.3 overs of the fourth day; their task on the fifth will be a whole lot harder.Resuming their second innings on 252 for 1, India batted through the first two sessions, declaring as soon as Ravindra Jadeja completed his second Test half-century. Jadeja and Rohit Sharma - who went past 1000 Test runs while scoring an unbeaten 68 - added an unbroken 100 for the sixth wicket, at 5.40 runs per over, effectively putting the target beyond New Zealands reach.Promoted ahead of R Ashwin and Wriddhiman Saha, Jadeja struck three sixes and two fours, and Rohit hit eight fours in his innings, and the pace of their scoring was aided by the ones and twos made available by New Zealands spread-out fields. It was an understandable tactic given the pairs six-hitting ability, and given Indias position.Before Rohit and Jadeja came together, New Zealands spinners had shown a marked improvement over their display on the third evening, when their frequent loose balls had allowed Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara to extend Indias advantage at a nearly uncontrollable rate.Mitchell Santner, probably the best of the three spinners, dismissed Vijay in the tenth over of the morning, getting one to straighten from an off-stump line to hit his front pad. Then Virat Kohli, who had already got away with a couple of streaky, over-aggressive shots in moving to 18, looked to sweep Mark Craig out of the rough and top-edged to deep midwicket.Either side of lunch, New Zealand took two more wickets, both to sharp catches by Taylor at slip. First, Ish Sodhi went around the wicket and opened up Pujara. Then, Santner picked up a deserved second, getting one to turn further than expected to kiss the edge of Ajinkya Rahanes defensive bat. cheap jerseysnfl jerseys china . The 27-year-old Scrivens will be joining his third NHL club since signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in 2010. The move also reunites with him with head coach Dallas Eakins from their time together with the American Hockey Leagues Toronto Marlies. http://www.cheapjerseysnflchinasupply.net/ . The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said. Its 15 minutes before game time, and Colleen Smith is at the net, front and center for the DePaul volleyball team. The 24-year-old Illinois natives got gum in her mouth and a smile on her face, and shes helping her hitters get in some warm-up swings. Chew, smile, set, repeat.Five years ago, on a different campus, the former high school All-American setter, a freshman at Indiana, kept a different routine. Cough, ache, puke, rest.Smiths life was in danger, not to mention her volleyball career. Her body was attacking itself. She was vomiting blood. Her red blood cell count was half of what it should be. Her lungs collected fluid.Doctors at IU made a rare diagnosis: granulomatosis with polyangiitis, also known as Wegeners granulomatosis -- a disease that drastically slows the flow of blood through the kidneys, lungs, throat and nose. After that came blood transfusions, chemotherapy and dozens of prescriptions.But even as a freshman lying in a hospital bed, Smith plotted her return to volleyball. She thought about it as a sophomore, too, when the Hoosiers coaching staff told her they no longer had a scholarship spot for her. She thought about it each time she was rejected by a program that wooed her as a transfer because the doctors didnt want to take on the risk of a Wegeners patient.Those five years led to this moment: Senior Day. Nov. 13. Her final home game at DePaul.Now third in program history in assists, Smith is still receiving chemotherapy treatments -- just once every six months now -- and is considering a professional career overseas.I just love that winning feeling, she said. It was important for me to get back to that.On this November day, as she flicks the ball behind her to a streaking hitter, she thinks back on all those battles won. Her eyes are on the next pass, well before the hitters spike smacks the ground.Chew, smile, set, repeat. She savors this moment. It is a gift.***Wegeners is rare. That much we know. A 2009 study in Arthritis & Rheumatology estimates that it occurs in about one in every 125,000 people. Others believe it goes widely underdiagnosed and is far more common. Either way, a statistician would tell you the odds of an elite NCAA athlete having Wegeners are minuscule.I feel like its so easy to give up on your dreams and your goals, Smith said, but I knew that volleyball was such a huge impact on my life, and it has truly shaped me into the person that I am today.There are little reminders of what shes gone through at every DePaul home game. Her parents and sisters, who live in the Chicago suburbs, know just how precious each moment on the court is for Smith and never miss a match. She has a red bow, the color chosen for autoimmune disease and Wegeners awareness, in her hair, and she and her teammates have bows on their shoes, too. As her career nears its end with one last Big East game Sunday against Butler in Indianapolis, theres this, too: a single-season program record for wins in the Big East.Before Smith tallied the first of her 4,185 assists (and counting) as a Blue Demon, coach Nadia Edwards was well equipped to bring Smith in despite her disease. Rush University Medical Center in Chicago provided a primary care location that would suit Smiths needs, and DePaul gave Smith a chance to continue competing in a big conference while staying close to home.We knew the talent that she possesssed, but every single day she stepped on the court, she gave us her all, Edwards said. cheap nfl jerseys. Shes been the anchor of our team for the last four years.Those four years werent without obstacles, either, on and off the court. She endured a 3-27 season her second year with the program. Then, this January, she had a Wegeners flare-up. While at dinner with her family, her mouth filled with blood before spouting from her nose. It took her a few months to get back to playing.I was a little surprised because she was doing very well, and she was on medication, said Dr. Roger Rodby, a nephrology specialist at Rush who has worked with Smith the past four years. Of all the diseases I take care of in the autoimmune spectrum, this ones the toughest. Its the one thats hardest to get to go away, and its the most likely to come back.But she came back, too, and its hard to imagine it going any differently. Smith is eternally positive, and playing volleyball trumps all ailments. Earlier in the season, she took an eight-hour chemo treatment on a Monday so she could recover and play DePauls two weekend road matches. She slipped in and out of sleep with her dad and one of her sisters by her side. The picture she took during the treatment, though, belied the difficulties it presented. She gave a beaming smile with a thumbs-up, the Chicago skyline in the background.Somehow, Smith didnt miss a match this season.Its just crazy to think back when I was at Indiana that, basically, a lot of people thought I was never gonna be able to play again, she said. I really do believe that everything happens for a reason, and I found my home here at DePaul. It definitely worked out.Her next home might be in Europe, where the odds are tougher still. Edwards played professionally and said Smiths talent isnt even a discussion. Shes good enough. Its about finding a team that needs a setter and, again, can accommodate her condition. And, isnt already at the cap for the number of American players allowed on its roster. Her dad, Bubba Smith, wants her to do it, no matter how nervous having his daughter that far away might be.But Europe is, thats her dream, he said. Fulfill it. Because every other dream youve had, youve fulfilled it. That would be something, you know? Jim Valvano, whatd he say that time? Every day, youve got to be able to smile, to cry, and thats a fulfilling day.Laugh, think, cry, repeat. Smiths familiar with that routine, too.***Smith locks arms with her mom and dad and walks toward her teammates and coaches. The gum is gone, but the smiles still there. The tears and memories have crept in, too. One of her outside hitters, Myah Reed, barely holds in her sobs.Smith celebrates with DePauls two other seniors. She hugs about two dozen fans -- friends and family -- in the stands. Then she sits down in the bleachers at McGrath-Phillips Arena, her home for the past four years, with that support system surrounding her. Everyone smiles. Cameras flash. There are two games left, but this has a feeling of permanence to it. Its hard not to think of the end.Smith lets herself do that, briefly. But as usual, her thoughts turn from whats happened to whats next.We still have season left, she said.And whatever else comes after it.
