Pakistanis 359 for 8 dec (Younis 104, Shafiq 80, Masood 62) and 236 for 4 dec (Azhar 101*, Shafiq 69*) drew with Somerset 128 (Sohail 3-26, Amir 3-36) and 258 for 8 (Trescothick 106, Yasir 4-107) ScorecardA century from Marcus Trescothick held Pakistan to a draw in the tour game in Taunton while Yasir Shah, in his first first-class appearance for more than six months, delivered 32 well-controlled overs and claimed four wickets. NHL Jerseys From China . But Trescothicks skill - Azhar Ali described him as an inspiration afterwards - and a dropped catch from Mohammad Amir helped Somerset survive with eight wickets down.Under normal circumstances, Pakistan would have declared much earlier. But these games are more about gaining experience of the conditions than the result, so they delayed until Azhar Ali had reached an impressive century and Somerset required 468 to win in 73 overs. On an increasingly slow wicket offering neither seam or spin, taking 10 wickets was always likely to prove hard work.Pakistan might well have done so, however, had Amir held on to a simple chance at mid-on. Josh Davey, who chose to take his chance with Somerset this week rather than represent Scotland, lunged at one from Yasir before he had scored and saw the ball loop to Amir. But the chance went down and Davey lasted another 50 minutes to take his side within sight of the finishing line. With Dominic Bess, the 18-year-old debutant, also lasting 56 minutes and Jack Leach lasting 44, Somerset did just enough to frustrate Pakistan.Perhaps Pakistans seamers were a little stiff after their exertions the previous day. Perhaps they were just a little complacent. But they bowled pretty well without ever quite appearing to be able to summon the intensity of their first innings performance. A quiet day in Taunton might not inspire as a full Test ground will.In the grand scheme of things, though, this has been a highly satisfying three days for the tourists. Having not played red-ball cricket for six months or more, most of their batsmen enjoyed time at the crease, all their bowlers enjoyed decent spells with a Dukes ball. Such issues are more important than the result in such games.There was an interesting observation from Matthew Maynard, the Somerset coach, afterwards, though. Asked whether he thought Pakistan could threaten England he agreed that they could, but with the caveat that their opening pair found form. If Mohammad Hafeez and Shan Masood can see off the new ball, the middle order can capitalise. But if they are exposed early, Pakistan could be vulnerable and the tail looks long. Their fielding, despite all the talk of improvement, also remains some way below standard for this level.There is an episode of The Simpsons in which Homer, having overindulged, is asked to leave an all-you-can-eat seafood restaurant, then drives around in vain looking for another seafood restaurant. And then goes fishing.Trescothick could identify with such an appetite. Only in his case, the appetite is for cricket. Many batsmen, at Trescothicks stage of life, would have skipped this match. But such is his love of the game that he not only wanted to play, but volunteered for a second XI game in Kent a couple of weeks ago in a bid to find some form having not played for a few weeks; he no longer features in Somersets T20 side.The reward for that dedication was this century: the 61st of his first-class career and the 47th for Somerset. That means that only Harold Gimblett (who made 49) has scored more for the club and brings Trescothick level with Sir Viv Richards. And any time any batsman equals a record of Sir Vivs they know they have done pretty well.Its hard to remember a time when Trescothick was not a feature of Somerset cricket. His first-class career started in 1993 before some of his teammates in this match were born. There is only one building on the ground that has been here longer than him and he is as much a part of the furniture as the tower of St James church and The Quantocks.There have been some to concessions to age. Though he remains willing, he is more limousine than sports car between the wickets and in the field these days and he now wears spectacles when batting. Every so often, he has to remove his helmet to clean the sweat from them. Its a right pain in the backside, he said afterwards.But many of the strokes are familiar: the half step forward followed by the firm push through the covers brought him a first ball boundary, the cut shot helped him to four boundaries in an over from Sohail Khan while Yasir was heaved for a six over long-on and towards Gimblett Hill. Its not surprising that they love him in these parts and he gives every indication he loves them right back. It will be a surprise if hes not still playing in a year.By tea it seemed the match was drifting to a draw. Forty overs had been bowled and Somerset had lost just two wickets. Tim Rouse, who required several minutes of treatment after taking a crushing blow on the helmet from Amir when he had 14, had showed character and skill in going on to make 41 and Trescothick survived a few airy strokes through the gully region to the brink of safety.But after Trescothick fell, edging as he reached for a wide one, Alex Barrow was adjudged leg before by despite hitting the ball through cover for four (umpire Billy Taylor reasoned that the ball brushed the pad before Barrow hit it) and James Hildreth rather spoiled his pleasing innings by chasing one angled across him and edging to the keeper. Suddenly Somerset had 15.5 overs to survive and only four wickets in hand. It was a little reminiscent of the Old Trafford Test of 2001 when England lost eight wickets, including Trescothick, against the same opposition to slip to defeat.Perhaps, had Amir taken the simple chance or the DRS been in operation, Pakistan might have pushed for victory. Certainly Yasir could count himself unfortunate to be denied a couple more leg before dismissals. Despite gaining little turn and rarely utilising his googly, he troubled all the batsmen with his control and will be a real handful on a surface offering him any assistance. But Somerset held on.Earlier Azhar and Asad Shafiq plundered 96 in 14.4 overs in the morning to extend their overnight partnership to 138 and see Azhar record the 26th first-class century of his career. Manipulating the spinners masterfully by going deep in the crease or skipping down the pitch, they disrupted their lengths and then punished them. Leach was cut for successive fours by Shafiq and Bess thrashed for successive sixes by Azhar. It was a reminder that Moeen Ali faces a tough series.Were pretty happy, Azhar said afterwards. Most of the batsmen have spent time in the middle and today the pitch has become flatter and flatter. Yasir had a good, long spell but Trescothick batted well. He is definitely someone we look up to.They are a pretty impressive attack, Trescothick said in reply. Yasir is probably the best leg-spinner in the world. He is on the money all the time. But if the ball doesnt swing and the pitch is good, you can score runs against them.I scratched around a bit at the start, but I started to feel a bit better in the afternoon. Its good to integrate with the youngsters and help ingrain the culture of the club within them. It was a nice day. Adidas Hockey Jerseys China . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. Cheap NHL Jerseys . The parade and rally were held to celebrate the Saskatchewan Roughriders 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday in the CFLs championship game. cheapnhljerseysfromchina.com/ .com) - The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks both take aim at their first wins of the season on Saturday, as the Canucks open their home slate at Rogers Arena. While they dined on dishes prepared for them by four England cricketers of past and present, the three most powerful men in the English game must have quietly marvelled at the outcome of their day.On Wednesday night, in the Long Room at Lords, Chance to Shine raised a healthy wedge for the continuation of the programmes that have helped to regenerate cricket in schools. There is a long way to go, and figures to do with participation in the game remain a concern. The ECB is addressing this with vigour and will work alongside Chance to Shine to ensure a brighter future for all children, not just the privileged few.Stuart Broad, Mark Butcher, Jonathan Agnew and Graeme Swann laid on a mighty feast, in a kind of cooking reality show that attracts lovers of the game to pay a good price for seats. Sample the fare and pick a winner. For the second consecutive year, and to a roar of approval, Broad was that man. He smiled the widest smile, took his bow and accepted the trophy.Elsewhere in the room, Colin Graves, the chairman of the ECB, Tom Harrison, the chief executive, and Andrew Strauss, the director of cricket, were smiling wider still. Hours earlier the counties had voted 16-3 in favour of the executive master plan - and a seismic shift to the way in which the English professional game will be structured.To clarify, the new eight-team, city-based T20 tournament will not be contested by franchises - as in private ownership - but will be owned and run by the ECB, which may or may not receive its desired mandate to rebrand away from the traditional names of the counties. First it must receive 75% of the vote of the 41 members of the ECB. The only possible hiccup could be the trenchant members of county clubs, who are inherently resistant to change. There are some nervous county chairmen out there.This debate has rumbled along since, eight years ago, the previous chairman, Giles Clarke, scuppered an attempt at something similar dreamt up by a breakaway group that included two or three influential county chairmen and the then CEO of the MCC, Keith Bradshaw. Almost everyone has had their say and it is high time to act. Standing still is no longer an option. The zeitgeist is evident in India and Australia, where similar models have brought huge crowds that include younger viewers, tribal following and a dramatic increase to television revenue. England needs to be on the gravy train.My initial instinct for T20 was to go for two divisions - Premier League and Championship - with promotion and relegation, played in exactly the window that has been identified for the city-based competition towards the end of July and into August. Like the County Championship, this keeps everyone in the business and allows for the rise and fall of empires. But there was understandable concern about the commercial value of the Championship, or, as it might quickly be known, the second division. Given that vastly increased income and public interest were the main reasons behind the pitch - or heist, some are calling it - the more radical design makes sense. Frankly, both options disennfranchise the smaller counties and their place in the great scheme of things ten years down the track must surely be threatened by the concentration of talent, glamour and money in the big cities. Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic. have long advocated fewer counties. By way of stealth, we may get there one day. I just didnt see it happening through T20 cricket, at least not until Australia launched the Big Bash League and proved conclusively that a new order had arrived. England will copy much of the Australian model, and imitation remains the greatest form of flattery. The challenge will be to get it right for the different environment, climate and attitudes that prevail in the old country. Thus, team names and colours; player auctions and/or drafts; the involvement of England players; pricing - for the television, multimedia and sponsorship markets, but most importantly, for the man on the street and his family; hours of play; staging and ticketing of semi-finals and finals, and much more, are all essential parts of a complex jigsaw. This thing must be sexy but it needs to be real. Amidst all the excitement, will anyone register that the four-day County Championship has been reduced to 14 matches per county, and how many will care? What will happen to 50-over cricket, which remains an essential bridge between the longest and shortest forms of the game? If cricket squeezes the 50-over game too hard, players may gravitate toward the lowest common denominator - it is sure easier to earn a crust by becoming a competent 20-over cricketer than by making the many sacrifices required to achieve a Test match cap.Will regions untouched by the lustre of city-based cricket lose contact with and concern for the game? Will international cricket, against all but the most prized opponents, play second fiddle to the Harlem Globetrotting of T20s brave new world? Only time will tell. Certainly these questions tell us something about the gamble being taken.My guess is that Wednesday, September 14, 2016 was a good day for cricket and everything proposed and acted upon will work out just fine. Fourteen County Championship matches is plenty if played with the relevant intensity. An all-singing-and-dancing 50-over knockout cup - tinkered with and tweaked here and there - that reaches its climax with a sell-out final at Lords on the first Saturday of July can bring some much needed jeopardy to the format and rather better reward for Royal London, its charming sponsor. The best overseas players will collectively return to our shores for the first time in many years: think Kohli, de Villiers, Warner, Dhoni, Steyn, and Starc. We shouldnt worry too much about international cricket, which stands alone in this land of hope and glory, Jerusalem and God Save the Queen, especially as the ICC are closer to a Test championship and tighter control over bilateral tour formatting.As for back-to-back, wall-to-wall two-tournament T20 cricket? Well, its what everyone wants. Isnt it?
