An allrounder on debut took 6 wickets for 41, and a rookie opener hit 55 and 36 not out to claim the games highest aggregate, yet it was day threes bowling effort that broke the match open, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson said. Air Max 97 Donna Saldi .Though New Zealand had secured a first-innings lead of 67, Pakistan had moved to 58 for 1 in the second innings, and appeared to be settling in, on a flattening surface. In an extended spell of tight and hostile bowling, however, New Zealand struck a double-blow, claiming the wickets of Babar Azam and Younis Khan in quick succession. They also accounted for Misbah-ul-Haq, Azhar Ali and Sarfraz Ahmed in a 15-ball burst in the third session, and when Mohammad Amir departed not long after, Pakistan had lost six wickets for 47 runs - their match prospects in tatters.Without a doubt our bowling effort in the second innings was the decisive period, Williamson said. We were hoping for some movement off the surface and Pakistan showed a lot of resistance - especially early - and were very patient. But the way that four seamers got into spells and held their areas for long periods at a time, it was world-class. They passed it over for the next bloke to take up the baton, and it was a huge effort being patient and getting the rewards later on in the day yesterday.We didnt get the ball to do a huge amount in the second innings, but we held our lines and our lengths really consistently for a long period of time. It was really important to make that adjustment quickly and not get too greedy and overpitch, because in the first innings you did need to bowl fuller to get those rewards.The debutants - both from Auckland, and both sporting moustaches - received praise from their captain, given their impact on the match. In addition to his record-breaking first-innings haul, Colin de Grandhomme also struck 29 crucial first-innings runs, and claimed a further scalp in 14 second-innings overs that only cost 23.Colin was picked because his style of bowling complements the other bowlers, Williamson said. Tim Southee and Trent Boult are terrific swing bowlers, but when it isnt swinging as much and you want to exploit a bit of nip out the surface, someone like Colin might be a good option, we felt. It turned out he certainly was. You do have to put the ball in the right area and he showed his composure as well, to execute his plans for a long period of time with the ball.Having top-scored in the first innings, Jeet Raval also proved a capable slip fielder, taking three catches in the cordon, before also completing an excellent diving catch in the outfield on day four.Jeet came into international cricket and it looked like hed been there for years, Williamson said. He was very calm, very relaxed, and stuck to the game plan. To go out and open the innings, against a very good bowling attack, on a surface that was offering something to the seam bowlers and achieve what he did was great to see, particularly in the first innings. Then he showed his composure again in the chase for the victory.The victory was Williamsons first as captain, both on home soil and against a top-nine opposition. It snapped a streak of four losses accrued on tours of India and South Africa.Its nice to get a win, but more importantly to have a performance that didnt show too much baggage from the past. There were a couple of really tough tours in South Africa and India. It was important we learned a lot, but at the same time, put some of that baggage away and tried to focus on what we needed to do here.The second Test begins from November 25, in Hamilton, where New Zealand could seal their first series win against Pakistan since 1984-85. Scarpe Saucony Prezzi Bassi . Already owning gold from competition in Vancouver in 2010, Loch posted a combined four-run time of 3:27.526. That included a track-record third run of 51. Air Max 720 Uomo Saldi . - The Washington Redskins have cut defensive lineman Adam Carriker and punter Sav Rocca. http:///...air-max-90-uomo.html .com) - Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer were easy first-round winners Tuesday at the Australian Open. COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Shakur Stevenson started throwing punches shortly after he could walk. His grandfather began teaching him how to box at age 5, and he has barely lost since he won his first fight at 8.He dreams of world title belts and enough money to move his mother and eight younger siblings out of his beloved Newark, New Jersey. But first, Stevenson is in Rio de Janeiro to fulfill a dream that has consumed him since he went online and looked up the early history of his favorite boxer, Andre Ward.Most people say they want to become a world champion, but hes actually been obsessed and wanting to win a gold medal his entire boxing career, said his grandfather, Wali Moses. And now that hes reached the epitome of his career and a gold medal is right here, I think hes starting to roll toward it. The climb has been hard, but he wants it.Stevenson doesnt flinch from the weight on his shoulders heading into the Olympics as the brightest candidate to win the first mens gold medal in 12 years from once-proud USA Boxing.Ward was the last American man to claim the top prize with his brilliant performance in Athens, and the London mens team failed to win any medals at all for the nation that still leads the world in Olympic golds and total medals.With his speed, skill and unbeaten record in international competition, Stevenson has all the makings of an Olympic champion. A lucrative professional career awaits him in the fall, but the 19-year-old has spent his entire youth focused on the Olympic 123-pound tournament, which begins Aug. 10.I dont feel Ive really proved myself yet, Stevenson said. Id rather go to Rio first and win a gold medal, and then everybody can talk about me. When it comes down to it, it doesnt matter what anybody else thinks. I dont focus on everybody hyping me up. Its just me getting in that ring and fighting.Stevensons mother, Malikah, named him after Tupac Shakur, the rapper and social activist who died nine months before her first son was born. Stevenson mostly avoided trouble on Newarks tough streets, and his grandfathers steady influence kept him devoted to his sport.Moses vividly remembers the first time he saw his 2-year-old grandson throwing hands.We were watching Tuesday night fights, and he just started punching, Moses said with a laugh. Every time I took him to a tournament, even before he was old enough to fight, he would always say, `Pop-Pop, Im never going to lose. Hes always had that attitude. Hes just totally deddicated himself to the sport of boxing. Balenciaga Speed Trainer Replica Italia. Ever since then, each achievement, I knew something special was going on.Stevenson soon developed a compulsive habit of shadowboxing at every spare moment, although he acknowledges that it can be unnerving to the other people waiting in lines at cafeterias or airports.Stevenson has been capable of boxing 12 hard rounds since he was 10 years old, and he grew into a powerhouse under the tutelage of Moses and Kay Koroma, now the associate coach of the Olympic team. He even attracted the attention of Virgil Hill, the 1984 U.S. Olympian who became a light heavyweight world champion.Virg told him that hes the closest thing hes seen to Pernell Whitaker, Moses said of the 1984 gold medal-winning lightweight. That really gave him a boost, a vote of confidence. Since then, hes been winning everything. Hes put himself in position to be one of the top boxers in the world.Promoters know it, too. Stevenson has been surrounded by attention from people hoping to guide his career to stardom -- and some wouldnt have minded if he skipped the Olympics entirely.He couldnt stop when hes so close to his dream, although hes looking forward to ending the world travels necessary to compete for the International Boxing Association (AIBA).It makes me appreciate more of what Ive got, Stevenson said of his trips to Venezuela, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Ukraine and other out-of-the-way locales typically chosen for AIBA tournaments. I came from nothing, but I still had something still, because theres a lot of people out in the world that really got nothing. To be honest, I hate traveling, though. I wish we could just teleport to certain places.Stevenson realizes he fights in a brutal division of the Olympic-style sport. The bantamweight field in Rio includes Irish world champion Michael Conlan, London flyweight gold medalist Robeisy Ramirez of Cuba and a lengthy list of tested international fighters.He realizes thats much the same situation faced 12 years ago by Ward, another serious American talent who charged through an Olympic field to win gold.I want to start my career how (Ward) started, Stevenson said. The main thing Im looking forward to after Rio is getting off the plane and going to Newark. Seeing all the people and how they feel about me coming back with a gold medal, I cant wait for that moment. ' ' '
