There are batsmen who go their entire careers without hitting the winning runs in a Test, so for Peter Handscomb to have had the pleasure in Adelaide made his debut all the more memorable. Larry H. Miller Jersey . Even more remarkable was the fact that another debutant - opener Matt Renshaw - was at the other end.Only once before in Test history had two debutants been at the crease when the winning runs were struck in a Test, and that occurred in 1880 in the fourth Test match ever played. To give some context to the drought, Adelaide was the 2236th Test ever played. Combined with Handscombs first-innings 54, it meant his was a particularly unforgettable debut.It was a nice little script out there, Handscomb said on Tuesday. I was kind of hoping I didnt have to bat in that second innings, or at least that Matty Renshaw would hit the two runs that were needed and I could just sit on my bat. But it was nice to be out there, and with Matty as well in his first game, it was pretty cool.Handscomb, Renshaw and Nic Maddinson all made their debuts in Australias win over South Africa, and were among the five changes to a radically overhauled side following the loss of the series in Hobart. And while there were runs for both Handscomb and Renshaw, Maddinson is still waiting for his first scoring shot in a Test, having been bowled by Kagiso Rabada for a 12-ball duck.Hes fine, hes a resilient player who knows his own game and hes just a great bloke, Handscomb said. If you get a good ball youre happy to go out to it - bowlers are allowed to bowl good balls. Hes fine. Hes still feeling good, and if he gets another opportunity I daresay hell come out and whack them.Handscomb was speaking at the MCG, where his Victoria team-mates were moving towards a five-wicket Sheffield Shield victory over South Australia on the final day. And while Australias ODI players now squeeze a three-match Chappell-Hadlee campaign into their gap between Test series, Handscomb is expected to play for Victoria in next weeks Shield game against Tasmania in Hobart.That red-ball game will be his final preparation for the first Test against Pakistan at the Gabba, a day-night pink-ball affair starting on December 15. And while Handscomb entered his Test debut with a strong record at Adelaide Oval - he had 479 first-class runs there at 68.42 - his figures at the Gabba are less impressive. In five first-class games there, he has 189 runs at 21.00.Ive never batted at the Gabba with the pink ball under lights, he said. It will be a whole new feeling. Well just have to wait and see, I think.Handscombs unusual method of batting extremely deep in his crease worked to good effect for him at Adelaide, where he was able to play the ball late and was particularly strong when cutting. His deep stance also appeared to upset the lengths of the South African bowlers, and he said it was a method that he had developed in the past couple of seasons.Batting deep in the crease came because I like to play off the back foot as much as I can, so the deeper I am the more chance the ball is going to be at a shorter length, he said. But also, mate, bowlers are fast. These guys can bowl some good clicks.The deeper I am, the longer I get to see the ball and react to it off the wicket or react to it in the air. Its just something that I developed a couple of years ago with [former Victoria coach] Greg Shipperd and since then its all gone pretty well.Handscombs promising start in Test cricket should ensure he gets a decent run in Australias middle order, even if the batting line-up is rejigged to accommodate Shaun Marsh, who missed out in Hobart and Adelaide due to injury. There is a strong likelihood that Handscomb will be part of the XI for the Boxing Day Test against Pakistan, which, as for all Victoria players, would be a dream come true.The thought has crossed my mind, he said. Hopefully I can get there first, get selected, and if I get the opportunity to come out here in front of a Boxing Day crowd, Ill be pretty stoked. Hopefully it happens. I was just about to put my order in for a few Boxing Day Test tickets, so I might just hold off on that. Deron Williams Jersey . -- Mike Smith never saw his first NHL goal go in. Utah Jazz Pro Shop . -- Ty Montgomery had 290 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and fifth-ranked Stanford held on to beat No. https://www.cheapjazzonline.com/ . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. This post contains spoilers.Ginny Bakers (Kylie Bunbury) nude photos leaked -- and that misfortune was supposed to be the central plot in episode 7 of Pitch. However, it ended up being more about catcher Mike Lawsons (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) backstory.?Ill come back to Ginny and her nude photos, but lets talk about Mike first. Apparently he had a rough childhood. He grew up with a single mother -- who may or may not have been a con artist -- and was told that his baseball coach was his dad as they dramatically drove away from his hometown in a flashback scene. All of this explains the chip on Mikes shoulder, and maybe his hyper-masculinity as well.Mike is constantly telling people how much of a man he is, and tries to present this macho persona. However, we, as viewers, know he is a kind-hearted guy who is still in love with his ex-wife Rachel (JoAnna Garcia Swisher), but the Mike Lawson shown to the Padres clubhouse is the dude who stands up (totally naked) from an ice bath to greet his new competition with his (implied) penis exposed. Even with shrinkage, hes well ... impressive. Thats what were supposed to believe, anyway.It was nice to get this peek into Mikes past, and hopefully that leads into Ginnys teammate and friend Blips (Mo McRae) background, and his wife Evelyns (Meagan Holder) history.But, back to business, lets talk about Ginnys naked selfies. In episode 3, we were introduced to Trevor (Shamier Anderson), an old flame of hers. Apparently over the course of their relationship, some suggestive photos were exchanged, and when Trevors computer got hacked, we knew problems were on the horizon.For the last handful of episodes, however, there have been no key developments on this topic -- and thats kind of been the theme of Pitch this season: delayed gratification. We are given nuggets of information (like who are Ginnys former friends, ex-boyfriend, brother and etc.), yet those threadss havent been explored in subsequent installments. Derrick Favors Jersey. Ironically, this has only been true for Ginnys character.?Mike has developed a storyline around his relationship with women and how he defines manhood, and each episode builds on that complexity. Similarly, team GM Oscars (Mark Consuelos) Latino identity has been explored.Thursdays episode finally built on one of those threads to give us a conclusion, and in doing so, hit some awesome feminist notes -- including a little bit of commentary on paternalism and female sexuality.When people found out about the photos, their first instinct was to critique Ginny. Why would she do that? Why would she put herself in this situation? Isnt she smarter than that?First of all, Ginny is only 23, and these photos might have been taken up to six years ago (the timing is unclear), which would make her potentially underage in them. Secondly, Ginny and her agent Amelia (Ali Larter) shut all of that down faster than you could say naked. The reality is that it shouldnt matter what she does with her body; the fact that these photos are coming out reflect more about the hackers invading her privacy and breaking the law, than they do about Ginny herself.The feminism, however, wasnt even the best part. That came when her male teammates stood up for her by baring it all for ESPN Magazines annual Body Issue. (They said that, not us!) The guys who previously viewed her as an outsider, made her life harder, didnt want to hang out with her and thought she was a distraction showed up for Ginny because she is their teammate. And they did so without grumbling. They didnt have to do this, but they did it for her. That matters, and is such a powerful statement.Unity in nudity? Perhaps. It seems to have worked for Ginny and her teammates. ' ' '
