this year.22 Five-fors for R Ashwin in just 41 Tests. O from xf's blog

First dates are hard, and the one India are having with DRS has thrown up its share of adorable and awkward moments. Bradley Zimmer Jersey .Batting for the first time in front of his home crowd in a Test match, Cheteshwar Pujara used the system to overturn an lbw decision against him and score a special century in front of his family and friends. That high, however, dissipated in the second innings when he was again caught in front of the stumps again but did not realise the ball had pitched outside leg. His wingman M Vijay was no help, and his coach Anil Kumble gave him an earful for not being brave enough to take the plunge. Poor Pujara.In Visakhapatnam, Indias difficulties in judging when to use the system came out in the span of three balls from Moeen Ali. A ripping offbreak took Wriddhiman Sahas pad and after an eternity Kumar Dharmasena raised his finger. Perhaps the delay encouraged Saha to review, but replays showed it was three reds. Two deliveries later, Ravindra Jadeja went forward to defend the second ball he faced, expecting turn from Moeen bowling around the stumps. Instead he was met by a full delivery that held its line and struck him low on the front pad. Dharmasena upheld the appeal for lbw, and it was time to engage the temptress.Jadeja strode down the pitch to get some advice from R Ashwin, his partner, who wasnt sure it was a good idea. India now had only one review left. But they had just lost one of their best lower-order batsmen. It was probably worth the gamble. When the replays came on, it confirmed as much, with the ball missing leg stump by a whisker.England and DRS have had a much longer fling, but that doesnt necessarily mean they do not have their own issues. Alastair Cook, in the first morning of the series, was given out lbw after he missed a flick to a delivery from Jadeja that seemed like it would clearly miss leg stump. Here too the non-striker was consulted, but Haseeb Hameed, the 19-year old on Test debut, had enough to worry about without having to calculate the balls trajectory.India managed a happy ending though. Jayant Yadav, on debut, struck Moeen on the pads in the first over after drinks in the final session. The batsman had come down the track, but the offspinner had seen that he hadnt really covered that much distance and more importantly the ball had straightened. Umpire Dharmasena had ruled against the on-field appeal but Jayant knew a debut wicket was only a T sign away and convinced his captain to go for a review.The ball pitched in line, hit the batsman on middle and went on to hit leg stump, three reds when so often in such cases the umpires call comes into play. The Indians celebrations - Virat Kohli, who just about raised his bat on scoring a century earlier, was punching the air in triumph - were indicative of an unfamiliar job very well done. Bob Feller Jersey . The quest begins with what is supposed to be an easy one, although Germany has traditionally been a stubborn opponent to Canadian teams at international tournaments. Yan Gomes Jersey . Jeff Green scored 13 points and Kris Humphries 12 for the Celtics, who nearly blew an 18-point, second-half lead. Sullingers 20-20 was the first by a Celtics player since Kevin Garnetts first game in Boston in 2007. Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season. . The Cleveland Indians, Tampa Bay Rays, and Texas Rangers all won on Sunday meaning the Rangers will host the Rays in a play-in game on Monday. 1759 Partnership runs for Englands sixth wicket in Tests in 2016, the fourth highest by any team for a wicket in a calendar year. The highest is Pakistans 2341 for the third wicket in 2006, when Mohammad Yousuf and Younis Khan added 1530 in 11 innings. This is the highest for any wicket for England in a calendar year, though: the previous highest was 1704 for the fourth wicket in 2015.79.95 Englands average stand for the sixth wicket in Tests in 2016, the highest by far among all wickets; the next best is 45.42, for the seventh wicket. Englands sixth wicket run rate of 4.02 is also by far their best this year, as is the five century stands.772 Partnership runs between Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow in Tests in 2016, the most by any pair. The next best is 750, by Alastair Cook and Alex Hales. There are three England pairs in the top four, and four in the top six.4 Teams which have a 50-plus average for the sixth wicket in 2016: apart from England, India, Sri Lanka and South Africa have also had prolific sixth-wicket pairs.9 Fifty-plus Tesst scores for Bairstow in 2016, which equals the record for the most such scores by a wicketkeeper-batsman in a calendar year. Danny Salazar Jersey. AB de Villiers also had nine such scores when he played as wicketkeeper in 2013.60.46 Stokes Test batting average in 2016 - he has scored 786 runs in 14 innings. Only two other batsmen - Bairstow and Virat Kohli - have scored 750 runs at 60-plus averages this year.22 Five-fors for R Ashwin in just 41 Tests. Only three bowlers have taken more five-fors for India: Anil Kumble (35 in 132), Harbhajan Singh (25 in 103) and Kapil Dev (23 in 131). Overall, 14 bowlers have taken more five-fors in Tests, while Ashwin is level with Waqar Younis, Malcolm Marshall, Curtly Ambrose and Courtney Walsh on 22.16 Instances of Cheteshwar Pujara being bowled in Tests. He has been dismissed 59 times by bowlers in Tests, which means bowled dismissals constitute 27% of his total outs in Tests.
