The ball had solemnly sworn it was up to no good. Then it was given to a redhead.It is the 16th over of Indias second innings. Ben Stokes came charging in and hit the deck with considerable force. The batsman picks the length up early. He prepares to get on top of the bounce by shifting his weight back and standing up taller at the crease. He has no idea he is in the worst possible position for what was about to happen. The back- of-a-length delivery turned into a grubber. Mischief most definitely managed.Virat Kohli should have been in trouble. He could even have been bowled off the inside edge. His best case scenario was if he was beaten - the line was quite wide - or if he could somehow keep the ball out. Those watching the third days play in the Visakhapatnam Test were introduced instead to the bizarre case scenario. Kohli smeared a four behind point.There were a few things that helped him pull that off. The original shot he was trying to play was with a vertical bat. So adjusting to the lack of bounce was easier than if he had attempted to play a cut, where the backlift gets bigger and therefore has a longer distance to travel. He provided himself with the same advantage in the 34th over, when the legspinner Adil Rashid produced a grubber. Kohli eased onto his backfoot and it came to rest slightly across onto off stump so that his head would be right in line with the ball. The inherent risk here is the possibility of lbw. But by playing the flick with a straight bat, and waiting to roll his wrists until he made the connection, not only did the Indian captain negate the chance of his being dismissed, he found another boundary.Free-flowing batsmen find difficulty keeping up on slow and low pitches. The lack of pace means hitting through the line is difficult and even maneuvering the ball into gaps requires a great deal of effort. Kohli seems to be setting the template to prove that obsolete although if you want to follow it, youd best hope you have hands as quick and a work ethic as strong as his. The thousands of balls he hits in the nets, the visualisation he does, the tweaks to his technique, all of it is in an effort to make sure he is equipped to make tough runs; to make sure he has a game he can trust when the pressure is high; to make sure he can not only tackle high-class bowling but dominate.Kohli faced more than 100 deliveries on a third and fourth day surface with wild variations in bounce and finished with a strike-rate of 74. No one that had lasted as long in this match has even come close to scoring that quickly. You have to want to be there, he often says, and watching him be there is a lot of fun. There are the bat twirls. The fiddling with the grille. The re-strapping of the gloves. The tapping of the pitch. He just doesnt want to be idle. He doesnt want his concentration levels to drop because thats when he knows he may not read the play as quickly. He barely spends any time away from the stumps. No trips to square leg to slow the game down. Hes ready in his stance, looking at the bowler with the impatience of a child waiting for their parent to take them to the park.It must be draining to be so switched on. But thats why both his physical and mental strength are high. At stumps yesterday, he had made more than half of Indias total - 56 out of 98. He finished with 81, only because of a spectacular catch at slip, stabilising India from an early wobble and giving them the chance to set a target never before achieved in the fourth innings of a Test in India. Kohli is a fantastic beast and everyone knows where to find him. At the heart of of a fight. Cheap Air Max 90 Sale . LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59.

The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta. Sydney put Geelong to the sword in an AFL top-four showdown on Friday night with an impressive 38-point victory at Simonds Stadium.The Swans led for all but a couple of minutes of the surprisingly one-sided encounter as they won 15.8 (98) to 9.6 (60).It was the Cats heaviest loss of the season and their second on the trot, which could well result in them tumbling from second spot to outside the top four by the conclusion of round 16.In contrast, surging Sydney will draw level on points with ladder leaders Hawthorn if they can find a way to get past the three-time reigning premiers next week at the SCG.Swans co-captain Kieren Jack had endured a difficult week in the lead-up to his 200th game after a family spat involving his father, former rugby league great Garry Jack, was played out in the public sphere.But Jack made the perfect start, kicking the opening goal of the game inside the first minute. He was a pivotal figure throughout, finishing with 24 possessions and a game-high three goals.The visitors had the better of the first term and would have led by a good deal more than eight points had it not been for the efforts of Patrick Dangerfield, who had racked up 18 possessions before quarter-time.The Cats hit the lead for what would turn out to be the only time early in the second term when Dan Menzel goaled after a spectacullar mark.ddddddddddddut from that moment, the visitors wrested control of the match.The Swans led by 17 points at halftime, 27 at three-quarter time and extended the margin to 38 at the final siren.Dangerfield aside, the Swans had most of the dominant midfielders on the ground including Tom Mitchell, Josh Kennedy, Dan Hannebery and Jack.The Swans also had great returns from young defenders Callum Mills and Aliir Aliir.It was sensational, said Swans coach John Longmire.From the first bounce I thought we played a really good, strong brand of footy.They came at us a bit in the second quarter but I thought our leaders were sensational and our kids were super tonight.Someone told me before we came in that we had four (players) under 10 games and eight under 30.Cats coach Chris Scott sensed early on that something was wrong.There are a lot of parts of our game that were well and truly off, he said.Weve got some serious areas we need to work on.Theres a clear pattern now of poor performance and even though weve got some guys playing well, weve got too many who are down.I think the first five minutes was quite alarming.The opposition just looked a lot cleaner than us and played the conditions a lot better.
