Raymond Aguilar, Cruz fill Slaughter’s big shoes

So we knew we really had to bounce back,” said Cruz.And after that lackluster showing in the first half, Cone no longer needed to say a word for the players to get his message across as the pair stepped up to the plate.“We just worked because we don’t have Greg and we don’t have Joe (Devance), so we have to step up because we’ve already lost three straight. It’s going to hurt more if we still lose to San Miguel,” said Cruz.Aguilar added: “Coach told us next man up. So it was a total team effort from us. We reserves stepped up and we’re lucky that we got the win. We needed this so that we won’t go down the standings and we’re fortunate that we had a good effort on our defense and our shots went in.”Playing stupendously in slaying the reigning three-time Philippine Cup champions, it’s almost a certainty that Aguilar and Cruz will be raring to go whenever Cone calls their numbers.ADVERTISEMENT Globe Business launches leading cloud-enabled and hardware-agnostic conferencing platform in PH Read Next Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice PLAY LIST 01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice03:46Lacson: PH lost about P161.5B tax revenue from big trading partners in 201700:59Old rivals Fajardo, Slaughter finally face off in the PBA Finals01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City MOST READ LATEST STORIES John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding NEXT BLOCK ASIA 2.0 introduces GURUS AWARDS to recognize and reward industry influencers Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH And with Slaughter set to return on Saturday against NLEX, they are confident that Ginebra can once again go back to its old winning ways.“We’re just ready.

First Test Day 4: India 82/6 at stumps

first_imgNew Zealand’s Chris Martin, center without cap, celebrates with teammates the dismissal of India’s captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, foreground, during the fourth day of their first cricket test match, in Ahmadabad on Sunday, November 7, 2010.Pace bowler Chris Martin put New Zealand in the driver’s seat as it reduced India to 82 for six in its second innings on the fourth day of the first test at the Sardar Patel Stadium.Martin finished with figures of 5-25, which included the prize scalps of Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid, as the Kiwis made a sensational turnaround after being dominated for the best part of the first three days.VVS Laxman (34) and Harbhajan Singh (12) were the not out batsmen at the close with India 110 runs ahead with four wickets in hand.It was a memorable day for the touring side as Martin put it in command after debutante Kane Williamson became the youngest New Zealand player to score a century on debut and Vettori reached a rare allrounder’s test double of 4,000 runs and 300 wickets.Martin’s first spell was all the more impressive considering the limited help he received from the other bowlers.His subtle seam movement proved too much for the Indian batting order, as he claimed four for 10 by the sixth over and his eventual first-spell line read 9-6-15-4.Martin had opener Gautam Gambhir and Rahul Dravid caught by wicketkeeper Gareth Hopkins during the 4.5 overs New Zealand bowled before tea. In between, Virender Sehwag was run out when substitute Martin Guptill flicked the ball for bowler Vettori to remove the bails as Dravid refused a single.advertisementIndia was 2-3 at the break and soon fell to 15-5 as Martin bowled Sachin Tendulkar off an inside edge and had left-hander Suresh Raina caught by Ross Taylor at first slip.The early wickets allowed captain Vettori to adopt an attacking approach despite the absence of debutant Hamish Bennett and Jesse Ryder due to injuries”We were really charged up after taking three wickets,” said Williamson. “We don’t know how Martin managed to make the ball do what it did, but it changed the game.”Earlier, New Zealand batted through almost two sessions to score 459 in reply to India’s 487, conceding a slim lead of 28 runs.Williamson was dismissed for 131 at the stroke of lunch after batting for 391 minutes, hitting 10 fours from his 299 balls, and shared a useful 86-run stand for the sixth wicket with Vettori (41).Williamson, on 87 overnight in a team score of 331-5, was caught by Laxman at slip when he played a delivery from left-spinner Pragyan Ojha.The 20-year-old is the eighth New Zealand batsman to bring up a century on debut. The last to do so was Scott Styris against the West Indies at Queen’s Park in 2002. Others on the list are Lou Vincent, Matthew Sinclair, Rodney Redmond, Bruce Taylor, Jackie Mills and current coach Mark Greatbach.”Patience is the key on such pitches. We had prepared to play spin bowling here,” said Williamson, who has played six limited-overs internationals and earned a call-up to the test side thanks to his knock of 108 in the fourth match of a recent five-match series in Bangladesh, which New Zealand lost 4-0.Vettori faced 91 deliveries and hit one boundary and a six. He became only the third allrounder after England’s Ian Botham and Kapil Dev of India to complete the test double when he reached 38 toward the end of the first session.- With AP inputslast_img read more
