first_imgBy Amlan ChakrabortyNEW DELHI, India (Reuters) – New Zealand will bank heavily on reverse swing to emerge from the trial by spin that awaits them in the Test series in India, coach Mike Hesson said yesterday.Last time they hosted a team, India rolled out turning tracks and flexed their spin muscles to crush South Africa 3-0 in the four-Test series last year.Kane Williamson and his men can look forward to a similar treatment in the three-Test series beginning in Kanpur on September 22 but Hesson sounded upbeat.“It’s a huge component of playing cricket overseas,” the bespectacled coach told reporters.“On surfaces that aren’t responsive in terms of seam movement, and they are abrasive and they lose their shine very quickly, you need to find another way.“Hence overseas teams are pretty keen to find ways to get the ball to reverse, obviously in a legitimate fashion.”Hesson conceded it would be a different ball game for his side, literally.“The challenge for us is firstly adjusting to the different ball,” he said. “The SG balls (to be used for the series) can be different to what we have been operating with – the Kookaburra.”New Zealand have picked three spinners — Mark Craig, Mitchell Santner and Indian-born Ish Sodhi — in their squad and Hesson said they could prove quite a handful on the turning tracks.“All three … are keen learners of the game and certainly we’re going to put a lot of faith in them in the coming weeks.”Captain Williamson was confident his team would prove equal to the task against the world’s second-ranked Test team.“It’s a tough place to play, particularly in recent years,” said the 26-year-old who will need to lead from the front with the bat if they are to succeed in the series“The pitches have been very tricky and you throw in world class spinners, the challenge is very tough.“At the same time, we see it as a very exciting opportunity …. You want to be playing the best in their backyard and the guys are excited and looking forward to the challenge.”The series, which also includes matches in Kolkata and Indore, was to feature the first day-night Test in India before the proposal was shelved.“There’s no doubt that the pink-ball Test was discussed,” said Hesson, whose team played the first-ever day-night Test against Australia at Adelaide in November, 2015.“Having played one, we were obviously quite happy to play one but for some reason, it was deemed not appropriate. Certainly was not something that came from our camp.”last_img read more

SU forward Chris Nanco nicked it to Ekblom, who redirected a shot by Hokies goalkeeper Ben Lundgaard.Ekblom’s goal in the 104th minute snapped a scoreless tie and No. 9 Syracuse (9-1-0, 3-1-0 Atlantic Coast) beat Virginia Tech (7-4-0, 2-2-0) 1-0 on Saturday night at Thompson Field in Blacksburg, Virginia.“They were a handful and for us to find a way right at the end, to come away with three points, I think gutsy is a good word to use,” Syracuse head coach Ian McIntyre said. “We were just lacking a little bit of quality in the final third and finally at the end we had a good finish from Emil.”McIntyre said the Orange gained momentum in the first overtime, but admitted he thought the match looked as if it would end scoreless.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU goalkeeper Alex Bono turned aside six shots, including one in the first overtime, for his ninth shutout of the season. Five minutes into the first extra-time period, the sophomore keeper turned aside a header from Virginia Tech forward Ricardo John.McIntyre agreed Saturday’s match was much like the gutsy performance it had last week against then-No. 2 Virginia. But with a six-day layoff after Tuesday’s game against Colgate was cancelled, Syracuse had an extra boost.“I think, possibly in a funny way, the (cancellation) on Tuesday probably helped us a little bit tonight,” McIntyre said. “ … It was our first overtime game of the year, and overtime games become very chaotic.”Syracuse’s attack jumped all over Virginia Tech to start the match. The Hokies committed four fouls in the first 15 minutes, and Ekblom and Nick Perea had shot attempts blocked early on.In the 27th minute, Ricardo, who finished with five shots on goal, had two headers turned aside by Bono in a six-second span.The Orange earned its first win, in five tries, against the Virginia Tech program.“It would have been very terrible if we came all the way here and didn’t get a result,” Ekblom said before the team began a 10-hour bus ride back to Syracuse. “We had to work very hard, but I thought we were the better team.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgUPDATED: Oct. 8, 2018 at 12:10 a.m.As a small child, Elizabeth Jamison roamed the sidelines of her mother’s ultimate frisbee games.  Her mother, Alicia Shultz, played in various ultimate tournaments and taught her the basics of the sport. Throughout Jamison’s time in high school, they played in local social and women’s leagues together, and while she’s glad Jamison picked up the sport, Shultz never pushed her to play. Jamison found a passion for the sport on her own.  “She always wanted me to (play) it,” Jamison said, “but I was actually planning on going to school for music, so all my time (in high school) was towards music stuff. So, she definitely established my love for it, but then I came back to it because of my own love.”Jamison’s first experience with competitive ultimate came her sophomore year at SUNY-ESF when she joined Fox Force Seven, the Syracuse women’s ultimate frisbee team. Now, as a senior, she’s one of two captains on the team and handles scheduling, payments and practices, among other things. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter a freshman year in which her former roommate and close friend Miranda Ciardulli described Jamison as being in the library all the time, the pair discovered Fox Force Seven through an event called “Discology.” Ciardulli thought they should go to the event, not Jamison.Both enjoyed the event and joined the team, and while it was Ciardulli’s first time playing, Jamison already had an advantage on many of the players. Summer leagues and learning from her mom aided Jamison. In the first month after she joined the team, she was one of three new players invited to play with the team in a tournament.“The normal way you throw a frisbee is the backhand, and then there’s a flick (forehand),” Ciardulli said. “Usually, people who are just learning cannot throw that for their life, but she could already throw it, and she could play, and her flick is just amazing, so people would be like, ‘Oh my God.’” Jamison still had adjustments. College ultimate was faster and more strategic. In higher levels of the sport, there are two positions – cutters and handlers – and they function akin to quarterbacks and wide receivers in football. Jamison handles for the college team and cuts for her club team. More fluid than football, ultimate players don’t run individual plays or wait for a whistle. Instead, it flows more similar to a soccer team advancing the ball downfield with the only difference being a player with the frisbee can only advance it by passing. For the last two years, Jamison has spent her summers playing for Boomslang, a club frisbee team located out of Albany. There are four main leagues for ultimate in and around Jamison’s hometown of Schenectady – competitive, open competitive, social and women’s. Boomslang reaches beyond local competition, hosting tryouts for prospective players and competing against teams from beyond central New York. At the end of their season, club teams play in both sectional and regional qualifiers leading up to the national tournament, which Jamieson has yet to make with Boomslang. Beyond the results, the increased activity with the sport has brought her closer to her mother. It’s their main topic of conversation when they’re around each other, and Shultz goes to most of Jamison’s games. Jamison’s co-captain, Megan Kirby, said that Shultz is often her daughter’s biggest critic and always pushes her to play better.“I’m so lucky,” Jamison said. “I don’t have many friends in the ultimate community who can go out and throw with their mom or play with their mom, so it’s fantastic.”  The same passion that has kept Shultz around the sport for more than 20 years has carried over to Jamison. She hopes to pass on her knowledge to the next generation of ultimate players as was once done for her. “Because ultimate is a relatively new sport and most people don’t know much about it,” Jamison said, “I want to foster the community, especially in high schools and getting women involved at younger ages.”  CORRECTION: In a previous version of this article, Elizabeth Jamison was misnamed.
